This administration is truly a disaster...

Good thing only a few items are on the agenda when Congress gets back.

That's all the wackadoodles have is jokes. There is not one idea to improve the country from the nightmare of the previous 8 years among them. That is why they were disemboweled in the last election.

There are only two things that they absolutely have to do this year, they have to pass a budget and they have to raise the debt ceiling.

The budget will no doubt be taken care of with yet another continuing resolution, extending the current budget for a few months. Last I heard, the debt ceiling has to be raised by Sept. 29. That will consist of endless, pointless debates and last minute action on the last day.

They will all be so exhausted after that, they will go through the motions, actually doing nothing, until time to go home for Thanksgiving break.

Coming soon to a media outlet near you, "Bannon the Barbarian".

Quote:
Steve Bannon's next moves will be all about the billionaire Mercer family. I'm told Bannon, who visited New York this week, met with Bob Mercer and together they will be a well-funded force on the outside.
  • Bannon has felt liberated since it became clear he was being pushed out, according to friends. He's told associates he has a "killing machine" in Breitbart News, and it's possible he returns to lead their editorial operation.
  • A source familiar with Breitbart's operations told me they would go "thermonuclear" against "globalists" that Bannon and his friends believe are ruining the Trump administration, and by extension, America.
  • Watch for Breitbart's Washington Editor Matt Boyle to be a central figure in this war which has already begun against White House officials like HR McMaster, Dina Powell, Gary Cohn, and Jared and Ivanka.

What is a "wackadoodle"?

If that is your term for liberals, you better get used to them. They have taken over the West Wing. And don't forget that Trump was a liberal Democrat long before he became a semi-alt-right Republican.

As an article at "Conservative Review" points out, this administration started out with three factions in Trump's West Wing, each pushing their own agenda. They were the NY liberals, led by Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the establishment GOP, led by Reince Priebus, and the nationalist populists, led by Steve Bannon.

Priebus is gone and Bannon is gone, and the West Wing is staffed by more NY liberals like Gary Cohn and Dina Powell.

For you it is, count on what you see in your business continuing for the foreseeable future. If it is good count on that, if not count on that. Where I am we are seeing a 25% upswing, under the old administration things were FLAT. Are others here seeing a progress in percentage that they can have a number to feel good about? Go President Trump go.

What on earth are you talking about? Seriously, I am neither agreeing nor disagreeing with you at this point. I am trying to parse what you said. I should clarify that I did totally understand the last line, "Go President Trump go. I fully agree. Go. Now.

Exhausted?

Those effng wussies on The Hill have no idea of what "exhausted" actually means.

I've worked 100 hour weeks in back-to-back weeks. I've grinded through 43 hours of straight work.

Exhausted? Those pussies on the Hill have no effing clue what "work" really is all about.

Amazing how no one is actually admitting the administration is in complete and total disarray.

Here is your list of people gone within the past month...

Chief of Staff
Press Secretary
Senior Advisor

Of course I'm leaving out the mooch who only made it ten days as WH Comms Director.

It would also be another thing if all these people shared similar ideologies but that can't be further from the truth. Just like the post earlier talking about how Trumps base is growing (even those the articles cited don't back up that statement). The President was right when he joked he could shoot someone and not lose a supporter but to any rational being the SS Trump is very listlessly lost at sea.

Edit) oh how could I forget both his SOS and SOD also walked back hos brilliant Korea comments as well. Wonder how long they're safe.
