    The man who observed Trump working and negotiating for 18 months says... "To be clear: Trump is a terrible negotiator. Whether it's North Korea, or China over trade, or Mexico over the wall, he's guided by impulse, does no preparation, is incapable of listening, and gives away the store in return for short-term ego gratification."

    A man we can rely on not to start a nuclear war. I don't think.

    The US won’t go to war in NK. That’s been tried before and didn’t work out well. The Chinese would likely swing behind NK with potentially catastrophic consequences.

    Which leaves Iran. Recent ME adventures haven’t turned out well either, but he might be able to get Israel and/or Saidi to do the hard work. If the US and allies have no idea what do do when/if they win then that too will be another disaster.

    What he needs is a little Caribbean adventure like Greneda.

    Once Trump put Bolton into his inner circle it was never going to end well, NK thought he was an A Hole last time he was in the US Administration during the George Bush era of diplomacy

    An insight into the mind of the Trumpist Evangelicals. Probably not far off what the Vice President thinks too.

    Mexico- get the ‘rapists’ before they cross the border.

    What I like about Jim Bakker is that he invites on people who are even weirder than he is and that’s saying something. The guy in the video is an inciter. He’s getting wood talking about terror and you can hear audience members getting aroused by it.
    BTW what are those blue cases stacked up? Looks more like ammo than dried potato mix.

    All true and totally unlike master negotiator and a wonderboy Mr. Obama who masterfully contained North Korea ,Middle East ,skillfully gave everything to Iran getting nothing in exchange and signed totally useless Paris climate agreement.
    Och how I wish 10 idiots like Trump would replace those good for nothing career politicians .Short purge of some sort of cultural revolution and reality check .

    That is wonderfully, speshully fully-unthinking/unknowing mentalism on display there.

    Also terrifying in its reach to the uncritical and the armed&ill-educated. This (unhinged and fully-LooneyToons proselytising) draws obvs from the book of Revelations of 'St John the divine' - which frankly, is a tome displaying Ergotism in the same degree as Burrough's Naked lunch is a hallucinatory foretelling of a bad friday in the office. It only just squeaked into the 'bible canon' at the Council of Nicea, 329CE, and the Eastern churches don't recognise it at all for their own good reasons. Such as - it is hallucinatory in imagery and doesn't actually join up with anything else. and compiled by some john of Patmos, rather than divine, and written or found ..sometime. But there we go: ' God Commands....'

    People who bet their AR-15s on this shit, frankly, are demented. But armed. But demented.

    Indeed. A nice looking pair on eBay as we speak. Rather good as I recall.

    Just watching Bannon interviewed by Emily Maitlis. He’s a snake- unable to offer any response to valid questioning of his Klan supporting, dumb populism and like Gorka, exploits his proximity to the Trump Presidency to get attention. The only defence he can offer is the grand conspiracy against him by the mainstream. Scratch the surface and he goes down about a centimetre. There’s nothing in there, apart from this stuff-
    “The illegal alien workforce coming in and destroying the schools”.

    What sort of twisted religion do you believe in if you think a deranged reality TV star/conman like Trump is part of God's plan? Beyond twisted. Absolutely nuts.

    No comedy writer could script the Jim Bakker show.

    The Jim Bakker show makes the likes of Abu Hamza look like rocket scientists. It is so far beyond parody I’ve no frame of reference. What sort of market-share does this obvious brainwashing religious cult stuff have in the USA?

    Bakker himself is well past his days of massive audiences, but the Evangelical mindset he represents has probably never been more powerful.

    Trump's personal spiritual advisor? A Jim Bakker guest https://i.ytimg.com/vi/WPZ5AcNq2YA/maxresdefault.jpg

    The man chosen by the US Government to close the Jerusalem embassy move ceremony? A Jim Bakker guest https://d2c13moo8u717n.cloudfront.n...11/05/26130514/jim-bakker-show-john-hagee.jpg

    And then there's Mike Pence...

    Imagine a world where David Icke guests are regulars at No 10 and that's roughly where the US is under Trump.

    I think the blue cases are extreme survival water bottles.

    https://store.jimbakkershow.com/product-category/water-products/water-bottles/

    Because that's what you'll want most of all when the apocalypse hits - a nice water bottle. It'll go beautifully with your extreme survival lululemons.

    I think they'd have more credibility if they did stock extreme-survival-blessed-AR15s, but they'd probably fall foul of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms, so for now it's just extreme water bottles.

    We are all laughing because while the situation is indeed utterly ridiculous, we have probably collectively underestimated the dangerousness of it. I couldn’t believe a U.S President saying ‘the FBI had rotten apples at the top- so he had to get rid of them’. He will go after anyone and any institution in his way. I’m curious to see if the famed ‘checks and balances’ in the Constitution actually stop him. Trump is dug in, has a fanatical base and a Republican majority happy to bend over and ask ‘how far Sir?’. He also has Gad on his side

    From:

    “How’s Bakker’s show doing? Hard to say. His daily hour-long show from Missouri is carried via satellite on various Christian TV channels – Daystar, Angel One, the Word Network – and on a dozen or so local stations (though none in Charlotte). But there are no Nielsen ratings for Christian television.”

    Seems to me that his audience must be relatively small, as end days nutters have to actively seek him out.

    I am awfully sorry, attending troll class 101 does not qualify you to post here. Good luck elsewhere!

    I don't see that, a conference is more like a conversation, if you reply to a specific comment, then the reply comment is directed at that person.
