    Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!

    When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. There always playing politics - bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!

    The liberal "elite" media will probably critique his use of grammar for days on end because he used "there" instead of "they're". They will try to ridicule him as much as possible to show how much better (read: smug) they are.

    Trump deserves a lot of credit for this welcome trend

    Trump Is Nominating White Men as Judges at the Highest Rate in 30 Years

    Associated Press and Michelle Ganney, Daily Mail, November 13, 2017

    President Donald Trump is nominating mainly white men to America’s federal courts with 91 percent of his nominees being white, and 81 percent male

    The shift could prove to be one of Trump’s most enduring legacies. These are lifetime appointments, and Trump has inherited both an unusually high number of vacancies and an aging population of judges.

    That puts him in position to significantly reshape the courts that decide thousands of civil rights, environmental, criminal justice and other disputes across the country.

    The White House has been upfront about its plans to quickly fill the seats with conservatives, and has made clear that judicial philosophy tops any concerns about shrinking racial or gender diversity.

    {snip}’

    One court that has become a focus in the debate is the Eastern District of North Carolina, a region that, despite its sizeable black population, has never had a black judge.

    A seat on that court has been open for more than a decade. George W. Bush named a white man, and Barack Obama at different points nominated two black women, but none of those nominees ever came to a vote in the Senate.

    Trump has renominated Bush’s original choice: Thomas Farr, a private attorney whose work defending North Carolina’s redistricting maps and a voter identification law has raised concerns among civil rights advocates.

    {snip}

    In recent decades, Democrats have consistently named more racial minorities and women on the courts. But even compared to his Republican predecessors, Trump’s nominees stand out.

    So far, he has nominated the highest percentage of white judges in his first year since Ronald Reagan. If he continues on his trend through his first term, he will be the first Republican since Herbert Hoover to name fewer women and minorities to the court than his GOP predecessor.

    {snip}

    The AP reviewed 58 nominees to lifetime positions on appellate and district courts, as well as the Supreme Court, by the end of October.

    Fifty-three are white, three are Asian-American, one is Hispanic and one is African-American. There are 47 men and 11 women. Thirteen have won Senate approval.

    The numbers stand in marked contrast to those of Obama, who made diversifying the federal bench a priority. White men represented just 37 percent of judges confirmed during Obama’s two terms; nearly 42 percent of his judges were women.

    {snip}

    Trump has moved aggressively to name new judges, getting off to a much quicker start than his predecessors. He has nominated more than twice as many as Obama had at this point in his presidency.

    {snip}

    Many of Trump’s white, male nominees would replace white, male judges. But of the Trump nominees currently pending, more than a quarter are white males slated for seats have been held by women or minorities.

    Of the eight seats currently vacant that had non-white judges, only one has a non-white nominee.

    White House spokesman Hogan Gidley says Trump is focused on qualifications and suggests that prioritizing diversity would bring politics to the bench.

    ‘The president has delivered on his promise to nominate the best, most-qualified judges,’ Gidley said. ‘While past presidents may have chosen to nominate activist judges with a political agenda and a history of legislating from the bench, President Trump has nominated outstanding originalist judges who respect the U.S. Constitution.’

    {snip}

    Alberto Gonzales, who served as attorney general for George W. Bush, says that when considering nominees ‘sometimes President Bush would look at the list we gave him and he would say, ‘I want more diversity, I want more women, I want more minorities.’

    In his first year, Obama’s confirmed judicial nominees were 31 percent white men. Bush had 67 percent, Bill Clinton 38 percent, George H.W. Bush 74 percent and Reagan 93 percent.

    Trump tweeted this morning:

    [​IMG] Donald J. Trump‏Verified account@realDonaldTrump 4h4 hours ago
    Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!

    The easy answer to that one is, "No, of course not".


    Then, a funny statement from John Kelly, Trump's Chief of Staff, regarding the UCLA dindus caught stealing in China:

    Our president said to Xi, ‘Do you know anything about these knuckleheads that got caught allegedly stealing?’” Mr. Kelly said. “The president was saying, ‘It’s not too serious. We’d love to see this taken care of in an expeditious way.’”

    Ha!

    Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.

    Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!

    Trump takes it to the next level with the ingrate black "fool" LaVar Ball..."LaVar is just a poor man's version of Don King, but without the hair." Ha!

    1. [​IMG]Donald J. Trump‏Verified account@realDonaldTrump 4h4 hours ago
      ...LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!


    2. [​IMG]Donald J. Trump‏Verified account@realDonaldTrump 4h4 hours ago
      It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence - IT WAS ME. Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair. Just think..

    No coincidence that Lavar and Donald have both appeared on WWE.

    I had to share this tweet from Trump this morning because it gave me a good laugh on a Monday morning (which is a tough thing to do):

    We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!

    The Donald is in trouble for "racism" again! This time, Der Führer made an innocent and hilarious joke about Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren during an event celebrating "Navajo Veterans." When Trump wanders from the script, he's as entertaining as anyone on the planet and his comedic delivery and ability to keep a straight face is supernatural...



    Leftists are chimping out and President Troll continues to own their souls.

    Rhetorical Question: Isn't the event itself "racist" and "ethnocentric," as it excludes all non-Navajos? Also, Trump was insulting Pocahontas Warren for pretending to be a "Native American" when she wasn't. Thus, he was actually defending featherheads against a white person guilty of "cultural appropriation."

    Trump just retweeted “anti-Muslim” tweets from a Britain First account showing 1. Muslims absolutely trashing Christianity smashing a statue of the Virgin Mary and 2. Muslims beating and pushing a boy off a building to his death and 3. Muslims beating up a Dutch boy on crutches

    Can’t wait to see the judenpresse’s hysteria on these.

    I saw that, along with links to the videos. Wow. He's feeling his oats right now...pushing the envelope, so to speak.

    I also like this one from last night, where he calls out the "deep State", then questions whether they are "rigged & corrupt".

    Charles McCullough, the respected fmr Intel Comm Inspector General, said public was misled on Crooked Hillary Emails. “Emails endangered National Security.” Why aren’t our deep State authorities looking at this? Rigged & corrupt? @TuckerCarlson @seanhannity

    This is good news but it should be zero. The US has enough people already.

    White House says US will take up to 1,250 refugees under Australian deal

    Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer says Obama-era plan to take refugees from Australia’s offshore detention centres is still in place, but with ‘extreme vetting’


    https://www.theguardian.com/austral...ralian-refugees-deal-resettle-extreme-vetting

    These are the worst of the worst that even the treasonous Australian regime - that is flooding Australia with third world invaders - won't let in - all ISIS terrorists with their beards shaved off!

    this what trump said 10 months ago...and now he's doing it! and the "extreme vetting", how is that going to go? "Are you an extremist terrorist? OK, that's good. Next!"


    "Trump added from the White House (Feb 2017):

    "I have a lot of respect for Australia. I love Australia as a country but I have a problem where for whatever reason President Obama said they were going to take probably well over 1000 illegal immigrants who were in prisons. 1250, could be 2000, could be more than that, and I said “Why? Why are we doing this?”


    So on the one hand he's making 1 1/2 billion Mohamedans so angry - Jerusalem - that they all want to kill us and on the other he's importing the worst of them so that they can do it close up!

    Well-known mudshark, Lyndsey Vonn, said she will be representing "People of the United States, not the President" at the Winter Olympics.

    “Well, I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn told CNN.

    Though Vonn traveled to the White House several times during Barack Obama’s presidency, including a visit accompanying then-boyfriend Tiger Woods to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in 2014, do not expect her to accept Donald Trump’s congratulations in-person after the 2018 games. When asked whether she would accept an invitation to the White House should she win in Pyeongchang, Vonn offered a blunt “Absolutely not.”

    "Break a leg" for us, Lyndsey.

    I always wondered how this flat-chested, pie-faced mega-Mudshark became America's "Winter Olympics Superstar" anyway? She's only ever won 2 total Olympic medals (1 gold, 1 bronze) and that was 8 years ago in the 2010 Vancouver Games. I'll be rooting for anyone but her. This twerp also created the "Lindsey Vonn Foundation," a sexist organization for girls only:

    https://www.lindseyvonnfoundation.org/

    "The Lindsey Vonn Foundation is committed to engaging the community and our future generation with a positive and constructive atmosphere. We focus on strengthening the community by supporting girls through scholarships, education and athletics. With our all-girl program we create a comfortable environment for growth as athletes, as learners, and as individuals."

    By the way, "Vonn" is her ex-husband's last name...she likely never changed it back for marketing purposes. A picture of her with her ex-husband, Thomas, before her Mudsharkery...

    I utterly despise these people.

    Sometimes I feel that CW Two can't come soon enough.
