    In CA, we have to register our party affiliation, but I don't have to prove myself to you.

    On the other hand, once again you prove that Trump and and his followers can't handle reality. Instead, they avoid reality, provide a false reality as you do time and time again, tee off on the writer who dares to write reality, and/or try to change the subject.

    You never deal with the actual issues contained in a post critical of Trump. You never defend Trump from the criticism.

    Why do you support Trump? Do you really even know? That question can be asked of most Trump fans. They do exactly what you do.

    For what? Do you know? Probably not.

    McCabe was fired for "misleading investigators." He was fired for "being less than candid." "Misleading investigators" and "being less than candid?" What a joke. Trump wanted him fired and McCabe was fired.

    Comey was investigating Mike Flynn and the deal he made with the Russians while a private citizen and a member of Trump's transition team. Trump wanted Comey to drop the investigation of the Russian connection. Comey didn't. Comey was fired.

    McCabe began an investigation of Trump because there was a possibility the President was an agent of the Russian government. Trump vehemently opposed that investigation. McCabe was fired.

    A FBI director was investigating a possible connection between Trump and the Russian government. He was fired by Trump. An acting FBI director was investigating a possible connection between Trump and the Russian government. He was fired by Trump.

    One doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to see there is a connection. It isn't rocket science to assert there is obstruction of justice here.

    Well, it seems like all those specialist just wasn't getting the job done were they? I mean, look at Obama's economy. Over 90% were service and part time jobs. Over 300,00 manufacturing jobs lost and millions on food stamps and welfare.

    Then you had his handling of the Middle East and ISIS growing from about 700 to between 25,000 -32,000 army. Millions of Muslim refugees invading Europe, which will never be the same again.

    Our veterans were dying trying to get good and timely care from the V.A. That is no longer the case.

    Then we had 70-75% of our Navy and Marine Fighter jets grounded along with 75% of Marine heavy helicopters. We had submarines out of service up to 4 years and our carriers having longer overhauls.

    The last two administrations tried to get NATO to put more money in it's defense, without any success. Trump got it done.

    Obama's last words to Trump was that N. Korea would be America's biggest problem and today we're having peace talks with them.

    Trump is getting many of our trading partners to renegotiate new trade deal, we couldn't do before.

    Could it be that many of these people aren't use to how Trump handle things and it's not like it's ever been done before so they either quit or get fired. but so far, the proof is in the pudding. Trump is getting it done when it couldn't be done before.

    I don't know - could it be because we were just wrapping up two long wars (neither of which Obama started) that military equipment needed repairs. Only idiots wouldn't recognize that issue. And because of those wars, we suddenly had a flood of injuries and PTSD cases? Trump walks in and is handed a silver spoon on the economy and the wars.

    As for No. Korea? Nothing has changed. North Korea STILL has WMDs and no plans to get rid of them.

    AND we are much closer to war with China than we have been in 30 years.

    We just lost our Nuclear Treaty with Russia and Putin is threatening war over a weakened NATO.

    So I'm going to call bullcrap on the bulk of your post.

    EVERY President negotiated trade deals. Trump isn't special.

    I remind every voter. Obama started plenty of wars. War against Syria. War against Libya and war against Yemen to name 3. Trump is cleaning up the Obama mess.

    There is just one reason you love McCabe.

    You are firmly convinced he hates Trump so you are now in favor of McCabe.

    Obstruction takes a lot more than merely you to make the case. I want your evidence. But like most Trump haters, you refuse to offer any at all.

    ISIS should have never grown to the large Army they became under Obama. There were only approximately 700 left when Bush left office. Iraq asked for air power when they first came down from Syria and Obama refused, called them Jr. Varsity acting like soldiers. Up till his last year in office when he finally got serious, he blocked 75% of the air strikes. Didn't want to kill innocent civilians. Well by allowing ISIS to grow like he did, tens of thousands were killed and millions left homeless. Europe is in a mess and will never be the same again. That war went on years longer than it needed to.

    Yes, things have changed. We got prisoners released Obama couldn't. Got bodies of our Korean soldiers back. No missiles are flying over our Allies and we are talking peace instead of N. Korea threatening to nuke us.

    China is a big problem. They are sinking lots of money into their military and want to cut off passage by their man made island in the South China Sea.

    NATO was weak, very weak, which is why Trump wanted them to build up their military. Obama couldn't get them to, but Trump has. I'm sure not as much as he wants them to.

    We cancelled the nuclear treaty with Russia. They have been violating it for years. Maybe now we can gt them to play honest if they want to renew it.

    Obama said when he was running for President he would renegotiate NAFTA, then changed his mijnd after being elected. Just one of many promises he made and never kept.

    I would say I wasn't wrong at all.

    Trump is about to fire another advisor for telling the truth. Trump lives in a fantasy world all his own. This is what he has said about Kim Jong Un and North Korea.

    “I was really being tough and so was he. And we would go back and forth. And then we fell in love, ok? No really. He wrote me beautiful letters. And they’re great letters. And then we fell in love.”

    "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea."

    Dan Coats, Director of National Intelligence, gave us the truth when speaking before the Senate Intelligence Committee. "We currently assess that North Korea will seek to retain its WMD capabilities, and is unlikely to completely give up its nuclear weapons and production capabilities," Coats said.

    Trump hates the truth when it differs from his fantasies.

    Subsequently, for this travesty, Trump is likely to fire Coats. White House officials have begun to have preliminary discussions about replacing Coats amid concerns that Trump may soon dismiss him, two senior administration officials told CNN, despite the President's public denial he's considering the move.

    The conversations began this week in the West Wing after Trump spent the holiday weekend at Mar-a-Lago venting to friends and advisers about the director of national intelligence, renewing his gripes about Coats' testimony before Congress last month.

    Trump on Wednesday told reporters: "I haven't even thought about it." That hardly means anything. Trump is a pathological liar and lying to reporters' questions has become a popular pastime for him. Besides, he failed to say he "full confidence" in Coats. That is a major tip-off right there.

    Trump has labored under many in his admin just the same way you are. And now can it be possible that you too get fired from this forum?

    I have told you several times, in a meeting with Pelosi and Schumer Trump said he was proud to shut the government down over his wall. Geez, man, then you turn around and blame Pelosi. What's wrong with you?

    Because she could have given a bit the same as Trump.

    You have never answered my questions. What new technology suddenly made walls obsolete? How are the sensors and 21st Century technology going to stop anyone from crossing the border?

    Sure I blame Pelosi. Trump thought if need be, a shut down to get better border security was worth it. Obviously Pelosi felt keeping Trump from getting anything, including making our country safer was worth it. She is putting politics ahead of the good of the country.

    The way the law stands now, all they have to do is step one foot across the border and ask for asylum and we have to take them in and hold a hearing on them. What if the next caravan decides to come across where there is no barrier?

    Don't do anything because it does not work anywhere.
