    Which is fair in this sense, for I think the proposal on the table would have limited The UKs ability to sign trade deals with other nations post brexit.

    I am being told Trump has three different justices being driven around Washington in black sedans, like the last scene in The Italian Job.

    There is nobody that the "billionaire" doesn't stiff sooner or later.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...npaid-overtime

    Donald Trump’s personal driver for more than 25 years says the billionaire real estate developer didn’t pay him overtime and raised his salary only twice in 15 years, clawing back the second raise by cutting off his health benefits.

    Noel Cintron, who is listed in public records as a registered Republican, sued the Trump Organization for about 3,300 hours of overtime that he says he worked in the past six years. He’s not allowed to sue for overtime prior to that due to the statute of limitations.

    “In an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement and without even a minimal sense of noblesse oblige,” Trump and his businesses exploited the driver, Cintron says in the complaint.

    The driver’s allegations echo those of other Trump employees or contractors who have sued the president or his businesses over the years claiming he has underpaid them or failed to honor promises to compensate them for their work. They have included mortgage brokers, landscapers and electricians who say they were stiffed on commissions or fees.
    “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”

    ooooh, I love this game. Let me guess, the real greatest threat to democracy is "identity politics".

    I thought it was bribery. That’s the biggest threat to democracy.

    So Trump went with Brett Kavanaugh. He’s a “Bushie” so it surprised me a bit.

    Yeah, no shit. I mean, it's not like he's trying to destroy NATO, or said that Germany was in bed with the Russians, or anything like that.

    It never fails. He always accuses everyone else of what he himself is in fact guilty of.

    He really is the master of projection.

    Trudeau is whoring out the canadian forces in order to deflect criticism about defense spending.

    It won't work, but I kind of like it.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his country is offering to lead NATO's new military training mission in Iraq for the first year and stands ready to provide 250 troops plus helicopters for the effort.

    Trudeau said Wednesday that it is important to help build the conflict-ravaged country's resilience against the Islamic State group.
    Trudeau set to extend Canada's leadership role in NATO's Latvia mission
    https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/lat...rump-1.4737690
    Canada's mission leadership role faces a self-imposed government deadline of spring 2019. It's now expected to continue until at least 2023
    More troops, more soldiers, longer commitments.

    Not going to work, but I've been busy.

    It's a Trump move really. Distract from the criticism at hand.
