    the world kinda sucks.
    The Dems winning the house is the excuse already being used. Theyíre claiming large investment firms are anticipating that and itís causing the downturn. More than likely is that firms had stops in place and it snowballed. It happens.

    Maybe now Trump will finally learn that the market is not the economy. He loves to point to it when itís up like it means the economy is flying all the while ignoring other indicators. The market will eventually rebound and heíll try to take credit for it again.

    Anyone apt to buy that nonsense was never voting Democrat anyway.

    so the saudis clearly murdered this journalist, but they also funded trumps campaign and have poured millions into his personal coffers, so it's all cool.

    Isn't that a tacit admission that Turkey has covert video surveillance set up in another country's embassy?

    Unless it was an internal Saudi leak, yes.

    Trump will have no choice on this one. There already is a bipartisan push for investigation and sanctions.

    Except congress can also impose sanctions and Graham is chomping at the bit. I think thatís why Pastor Brunson got released, to appease Graham and his supporters who have been trying to get him released for a couple of years.

    Ya right.

    This guy declared a diplomatic and economic Jihad on Canada over a tweet, the world barely blinked.

    What is a single journalist?

    Just goes to show how the American president more or less turning a blind eye to Putins strongman nonsense is emboldening others to be more adventurous

    Every country does it and every other country knows it is being done. Admitting it publicly wold be somewhat of an extraordinary step, but it isn't clear (to me at least) if Turkey did that or if they told other intelligence agencies and it was leaked.

    The Trump admin's response to this is an absolute scandal, and the clearest signal yet that they have fully abandoned any claim the US has to being a moral leader on the world stage.

    Trump aside, the initial Republican response has been pretty strong, but I think ultimately it will play out much like the Kavanaugh scenario: 1. dismay from some corners with the possibility that what is claimed is true ; 2. soft demands for some kind of investigation; 3. fall back on Trump's talking points (we don't have all the facts/maybe it was someone else.)
