    Aquitted by the senate. Eat that Pelosi. And the traitor Mittens is toast, that will be fun to watch.

    The roadrunner disappears into the future and the coyote face-plants once again.

    If Trump lost it would have been a shock.

    Democrats are the most incompetent political group akin to the greens.

    Starting impeachment without the numbers needed to win when Trumps pets were writing the rules is beyond idiotic.

    Can you please tell me Shaddam IV, why Mittens or Romney I assume is a traitor

    How did he commit treason, was it agianst the US or just trump do you think?

    He sat through the whole trial and came to the conclusion that the case against
    trump was proven....as did lamar alexander, I dont know how many other republican
    senators came to the same conclussion....do you?

    so why is Mittens a traitor and lamar alexander not a traitor


    And this is just a question that anyone can answer

    Who creates all of these meme's and spoof videos and the like of trump
    that you keep posting, the amount of work that goes into all of these
    would be quite considerable...is this a paid job

    cheers grant

    Romney has been anti-Trump since day 1. A few times Romney acted chummy towards Trump for reasons unknown at the moment. In my opinion Romney is akin to Comey, et al, and was trying to get into Trump's camp to do what Brennan, Comey, Page, etc were trying to do to him but failed. That is, bring him down.

    Trump in his usual style also said "mean" things about Romney not being able to beat Obummer in the election. This is Romney's way of hedging. He knows he can't beat Trump in a primary, but if later on Trump gets into big legit trouble, Romney can say I told ya so and maybe try to relive his attempt at glory?

    PS If you were not aware, Paul Ryan was Romney's VP running mate and they are good buddies. Ryan hates Trump and has admitted to trying to stop him in various ways (see below link). Birds of a feather... Both Romney and Ryan are RINOs to the nth degree who hated Trump before he even won.

    A disclaimer, im not a trump fanboy so dont mistake me as one.

    But its pretty well known Romney hates Trump, this would be equal to Turnbull vs Abbott, Gillard vs Rudd, two guys who dont like each other but supposedly play on the same team and would happily see the demise of each others political careers, the best example I could put down as a comparison.
    So hard to really see if Romney really thinks he is guilty,He likely doesn't even know him self, the judgement either way would be clouded by the fact he just doesnt like the guy, there has been allot of little potshots over the years from both guys.

    But anyways American Politics is stupid, It is so stupid it makes our shambles here in Aus over the last few years look fine and dandy. watching the Dems vs Trump is like watching dumber and dumber, And thankful I dont have to vote for those dimwits

    The fed pumped in another 50 billion last night.
    All the right left grade school baby stuff is just a distraction.
    All the time you guys talk about the creamy thighs on your heros and not a sack among any of them.

    I mean this respectfully, but in Oz does it really matter who wins? Your pols are so similar that whether it is a conservative or extreme lefty who wins, there will still be no gun rights, no true freedom of speech, no lessening of tight regulations, no real change in taxes collected, etc. So there I opine it is more bragging rights and more like an intellectual exercise.

    Here in the US, the difference between candidates is YUGE. You all won't really believe this but it is a life and death decision. Imagine if Hillary had won what new wars etc, the US would have entered in the past 3 years. Gun rights would be all but gone because Hillary would have put on two lefty S Ct judges and the powers that be would not be giving Ginsberg whatever the hell life entending elixir they reserve for those they favor, so there would probably be 3 new lefty S CT judges. All would be lost. The S Ct has the final say here in the US and "trumps" both the legislative and executive branches for final decisions. What they say goes so to speak.

    The dems will destroy the bill of rights if they win (and can appoint enough SCt judges). This matters to those of us who aren't millennial aged college students who've been programmed by the educational system since birth.

    The reason things look more messy than they really are is because the US media is trying as hard as they can to hurt Trump and to back the lefty machine.

    PS The US was the same way as with regular dems and repubs, all on the same team vs. the citizens. I think it different with Trump and so far he has kept far more of his promises than any other prez in my lifetime (50 plus years). It's just most lefties hate his promises so they say he hasn't kept any, while his supporters know this is false.

    JohnnyBravo,

    You seem to focus on this one issue all the time, so I would assume you realize Trump has no power over the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve is an independent, private corporation. Their chiefs are appointed, but that is as far as it goes.

    So if you blame Trump for what the Fed does, it really is a mistaken critique.

    If Trump is clamoring for lower or negative interest rates, it is because that is what most other industrialized nations are doing and to be competitive long term, we will too eventually.

    No matter who is the president it won't change. It can't change because the entire modern banking system is built around this.

    Hes the potus. Of course he has the power to do anything he wants.
    When it comes to the constitution there shouldnt be a question, but socialists hate that old piece of paper.

    Personally I dont give two shits about gun rights. I can walk down the dodgiest street in this country with very little concern, and if I want a gun I could go get one, I just got to go get a license which I have.
    We have free health care, So you could be the most povo bastard in the country and still go to the doctors with out spending a cent, go to the hospital and get treatment free of charge, have many operations free of charge. Our standard of living here is pretty damn good, while some here do like to complain other wise, if being honest we certainly have a better balance than what you yanks have, your either one way or the other on a more extreme level, American politics biggest problem is you cant seem to meet up in the middle on very much. We are a capitalist country like you guys but can still have good free health care. Id trade my gun for that anytime and Im a conservative, Just not a raving lunatic conservative you guys seem to have over there, But yes Australia is typically a more centrist country more centrist on both left and right in our major parties compared to the USA, With the exception of a few individuals and minor parties.
    sitting back here as observers, the US looks Like the Lunatics are running the Asylum and thats on both sides.

    You just made my point. Your citizens don't have the same concerns we have here.

    You can't just walk down a "dodgy" street here without possibly being killed. In part, because we have a very violent subset of citizens who live here. That's why even liberal states are now allowing guns to be carried.

    Do you all have a place like Chicage, Detroit, etc, whose murder rates are slightly less than 3rd world places? And no it's not guns that cause the violence, other areas with more guns have less violence per capita. The more gun restricted cities generally have the highest gun violence. Funny huh?

    PS I wasn't criticizing your country but pointing out differences. As usual, it is seen as an attack which you then make more anti US statements.

    If trump wants to protect America now is the time for action.
    Or he will just hand it off injured and beaten and drowning in debt so the left can bring in complete control and socialism for his masters. Pandering to the left constantly.
    It's easier for the right to blame the left every waking moment even while the right is in charge and does nothing.
    He just carries the torch until the left takes back over. Setting the stage for the next big wave of government.

    Yer, I didnt disagree with you as you also made my point on my first post, that USA politics is stupid.
    Only thing Is the negative tone you tried to make out on our positive traits. lol, making it like we have less rights than you, the point is do you really have more rights than us? I dont think so, you can buy guns willy nilly, But beside that your system is you think you have more rights but you dont, Think the right of having free health care trumps much of your so called rights having a rapid fire weapon, and come to think of it our is likely better freedom of speech, we can walk up to our prime minster and express our concerns be it negatively with out being fired upon By security. In fact people walk up to our PM and call him a dickhead to his face at the local pub and no one blinks an eye. lol.
    you dont get much more freedom of speech than that, that would likely see you shot dead in the US.

    I was referring to rights such as freedom of speech, etc. Not freedom from medical bills. You do realize there is nothing "free" in life. Your "free" healthcare is paid by someone. Apparently you don't have a 1st amendment there. Your journalists aren't free either per the below link.

    I don't really care one way or the other what you and your folks do to be honest.
