German reporter prompts Trump to express regret over tweets.

A quick clip from yesterday's press conference:

"Very seldom." "The media doesn't tell the truth."

Trump speaks truth to power.

What is it with the constant prompting for apologies and regret- haven't they figured out the game by now, and that they're losing?
Zee Ghurmannz are supposed to be five hours ahead of Washington...

Tank said...

He's good.

Try to imagine any of the 16 other Repub candidates answering that question as well. Forget it. Instead of being defensive in any way, he weaponized the opportunity.

Weaponized the opportunity. I like that.

Now, he could have asked him if Obama spied on Bernie Sanders too, or was it just him and Merkel? How about Bibi? OKOK, everyone knows Obama spied on Bibi.

Why would Trump need to get around the lying media? And Chuck.

Chancellor Merkel clearly thinks Trump is a dolt.

Trump is winning?

Republicans are fleeing him left and right. Their agenda has broken down and is not advancing in the congress and instead of proving leadership, Trump is goofing off BIGLY! Sad.

We are not even two months into this, but it feels like two years. I am getting the sense of growing buyers remorse from those who made the snap decision and voted for this goofball.

Only the ones that aren't going to be able to call themselves "Republicans" when the voters catch up with them. The rest of us love Trump.

Watched Bill Maher last night. Andrew Sullivan, Barney Frank (2-man panel); Jake Tapper and Sheldon Whitehouse in one-on-ones. All anti-Trump.

It's interesting to really listen and understand where these people are coming from and to analyze the conceits hidden just below the surface.

Big focus: Trump's Tweet about "Obama tapping," saying Trump's crazy, etc.

Admittedly, Trump stepped on his own message with the specificity of his Tweet. At the same time, however, clearly what all the anti-Trump panelists were doing was avoiding the 800-pound gorilla in the room: the Russian collusion story that the press has been stroking for months has proven to be a "nothing-burger."

Trump made an impulsive Tweet that stepped on his own message of vindication. But who's been breathlessly pursuing a conspiracy theory for months in an attempt, dare I say, to "influence the outcome of our election"? The mainstream press, obviously.

Jake Tapper was no better. When asked to list Trump effronteries, Tapper gave a election campaign list: McCain hero, disabled reporter, etc.

What Tapper made abundantly clear from his interview was that he was bringing a bunch of election campaign grudges into the White House.

There is no need for messaging control vis a vis the other side, as this is an open cold war. There is no need, or possibility, of calming down the press, as the reason they are hostile is the fundamental conflict of interests versus the Trump coalition.
Not simply Trump, but his supporters. These are two enemy peoples in conflict. In any other polity, with less economic padding, where life is closer to the bone, we would be talking about militias, guerillas, and ethnic cleansing, such is the level of enmity, people-to-people.
These two sides are irreconcilable enemies without a word being said. In this environment words are simply weapons. They are used because people have too much to lose should they use real weapons.

grackle said...

I think what happened in the private Trump/Merkel meeting was something one of my old bosses(a retired USMC gunny sergeant) called a “consciousness-raising session.”

All of us devoutly wished never to be on the other end of one these sessions. Grown men emerged from these meetings pale and obviously shaken.

My President Trump has demanded and will get more money for NATO from Merkel. The others will fall in line after her example. They’ve all been on a free ride since WW2. Time to start paying your fair share, my dears.

Merkel is now being called "The Leader of the Free World" all around the free world.

The "Free World" is a term from the Cold War which referred to anything outside of the Iron Curtain, which no longer exists. It is obsolete. Merkel is barely the leader of Germany, as will be determined in the next elections.

buwaya said...

Trumps people want the masters of the other side impoverished and driven from their positions of power, if not imprisoned or exterminated.

Trumps powerful enemies want Trumps people impoverished and under their close control in every way, with no civil liberties, and ultimately exterminated.

Deep down, to a degree unconscious, this is the fundamental imperative, the end to which the emotional urge, that we see just the edge of, is directed. Extermination.

The US is Yugoslavia in 1991, with too much to lose to start honestly shooting. What we have here are Serbs and Croats. It is too much to expect the Serb press to deal with Croats without hostility, and vice versa.

Turkish diaspora in Europe should have at least 5 children: Erdogan

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on the Turkish citizens residing in Europe to have at least five children in an attempt to multiply their presence in the continent amid rising tensions between the European Union and Ankara.

Unknown said...

Ex NSA director Flynn is an agent of Turkey. Nice. I wonder what advice he's giving Erdogan.

Unknown said...

So, will Erdogan now be Trumpists new hero, after Putin of course.

http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/what-mike-flynn-did-for-turkey

"A day later, the coup failed; Erdoğan proceeded to round up thousands of alleged plotters and sympathizers, including military officers, judges, and teachers. A Times editorial accused the Turkish President of staging a “counter-coup” and acting “increasingly authoritarian.” Such characterizations tend to unnerve tourists and foreign investors. In early August, Ekim Alptekin, a Turkish businessman and the chairman of the Turkey-U.S. Business Council, contacted Flynn’s consulting firm, the Flynn Intel Group, about repairing Turkey’s image in the United States. Flynn, whom I profiled for the magazine in February, was one of Trump’s most prominent supporters on the campaign trail, and often accused Hillary Clinton of “influence peddling.” Still, he agreed to help Alptekin, in exchange for a six-hundred-thousand-dollar contract.

In order to comply with the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or fara, lobbyists working directly or indirectly on behalf of foreign governments must file paperwork with the Justice Department identifying themselves as “foreign agents.” After agreeing to work with Alptekin, Flynn and his colleagues initially considered doing this, according to a source who participated in the discussions, but they concluded that it wasn’t necessary, since Alptekin was not a Turkish official and the funds were not Turkish government funds. Instead, they filed with Congress, under the Lobbying Disclosures Act. Flynn was merely helping a businessman, they rationalized, and not acting as an agent of a foreign government.

But, last week, Flynn—who was forced to resign as Trump’s national-security adviser on February 13th—refiled his paperwork, to acknowledge that his work for Alptekin may, in fact, have benefitted the Turkish government. The disclosure put Flynn’s work with Alptekin in a new light, raising new questions about Flynn’s judgment—during both the campaign and his brief time in the Administration—and about the Administration’s handling of his entanglements."

Unknown said...

Nope, Erdogan is Flynn's boss. He's no hero to any lefties. You need to keep up with the latest Trumpist heroes list.

buwaya said...

Flynn was advising Erdogan while Erdogan was a bitter enemy of Putin, both backing different sides in Syria and Erdogan was shooting down Russian airplanes and Russia was threatening shutting down Turkish airspace and starting a war. They still back different sides today, though less openly hostile.
So therefore Flynn was at the same time Putins patsy and Erdogans, while these two were shooting at each other. There is little sense in these talking points.
As I have long said, these words are just substitutes for bullets in America's current civil war. They are just weapons.

buwaya said...

EDH: So, will Erdogan now be the anti-Trumpists new anti-hero, after Putin of course.

It may be that Erdoğan will soon be experiencing strange new respect among the lefties. I don't read Vox but this article's headline scrolled by in my newsfeed this morning, and I was intrigued enough to see how they might dance around certain colliding world-views re Turkey and Europe to click.

On the one hand they have to condemn European nationalists, who "[feed] off of this [Turko-Euro] antagonism and used it for their own political gain". On the other hand Erdoğan is a bad guy in Turkey. On the other other hand he's openly promoting the shitlibs' wet dream of an Islamized Europe (and has been for a while now):

"Speaking at a rally in the Turkish city of Eskisehir on Friday, Erdoğan told his compatriots living in Europe that they should view success — and the creation of big families — as the best way to combat the swell in anti-Muslim and anti-Turkish sentiment across the continent.

'Go live in better neighborhoods. Drive the best cars. Live in the best houses. Make not three, but five children. Because you are the future of Europe. That will be the best response to the injustices against you,' he said.
[my bold]

Or, rather, the shitlibs' wet dream of sticking it to "fascists" (i.e., non-shitlibs) by whatever means handy.

Stay tuned.

So it's Erdogan now, eh?

Well, I guess that Putin thing isnt panning out to well for our lefty pals.

Don't sweat it. Tomorrow or next week it will be some new "horrible" that is "Actually Running American Policy Under Trump".

BTW, while we are on the subject, can anyone tell me who this weeks "Spinning Wheel" selection happens to be for "The Person Who Is Actually Telling Trump What To Do"?

It changes quite frequently.

And this is all akin to "The Person Who Is Actually Running The Republican Party", which contains many consistent standbys but now and then a new person gets lobbed into the role by our lefty paranoid mass hysteria types.

Grover Norquist was one of the funnier ones but also includes the NRA guys, Koch brothers, Rush Limbaugh, that Akin guy from Missouri, back in McCain's time some preacher from Ohio that hardly anyone ever knew, etc.

Kind of a parlor game really.

AReasonableMan said...

Let's agree that Germany doesn't pay its fair share in respect to defence. Wouldn't the smart play be to reduce our defence spending on NATO in order to force them to spend more or face whatever consequences that result from their lack of spending? Why would we commit to spending more on defence? Doesn't this undermine our bargaining position? Dumb American's keep spending on defence so we don't have to.

Drago said...

ARM, I like where you are going with that and I believe that is probably the negotiating position that Trump took.

Of course, the Germans weak commitment of reaching 2% of GDP for defense allocations isn't required until 2024. Further, I think the current 1.3% will only increase in the coming year by 8%, so Germany will only hit about 1.4% for 2017.

But, baby steps initially for the "Leader of The Free World" according to Field Marshall Unknown.

Unknown said...

"Well, I guess that Putin thing isnt panning out to well for our lefty pals."

Lefties never liked Putin. You don't seem to know lefties all that well. It's Trumpists who love him as he is Trump's "big daddy". Erdogan Is Flynn's employer, Trump loved Flynn and Flynn loved Trump, oh he loved Putin too ( three way). We lefties never liked Erdogan either. You need to get your facts straight when trying to 'right-splain' to the other rightists here who the lefties hold in high regard.

Cacimbo Cacimbo said...

Obama claimed to receive most important information from media during his tenure. Fast & Furious, General Petraeus sex scandal, IRS targeting Tea Party groups, his own administration using the espionage act to target reporters, spying on Merkel, Hillary's email........ Each time BO was shocked when he learned of these events via media. Now Trump like BO claims to have learned of the Obama administrations misdeeds via media. Trump has only been President for two months. Hopefully he will prove more capable than BO and be able to correct the conditions that force Presidents to get vital information from media rather than through the appropriate channels.

Drago said...

Unknown: "Lefties never liked Putin."

I guess this is the point where we forget how Obama turned belly up for Putin re: flexibility, uranium, resets and the Ukraine.

Not to mention the Amazing Appearing and Disappearing Syrian Red Line which blazed a direct path for Russia to re-established their position in the Middle East.

Not to mention Obama hollowing out the military and trying to hinder fracking which has helped kick Putin in the teeth.

Oh, that's right. You're the moron who thinks Germany is some sort of superpowet/"Leader Of The Free World", aren't you?

At this point, what difference does it make how you felt about Putin? Liberals with their stupid policies enabled him. Removing air defense from Eastern Europe, slowing down oil and gas development in USA, giving up Middle East to Iran and ISIS, pushes my regulations down the threat of American businesses, unilaterally disarming us armed forces....

When we reference the dems "hacking their own primary", we don't mean that the DNC jumped into any IT system and released emails.

We mean the DNC "hacked" their primary PROCESSES to help ensure Hillary's win. This has been well established as you can see by the links above.

I'm sorry if your own party can hack their own primary processes, admit to it afterwards and have internal meetings to ensure it never happens again all the while you sit here saying it never happened!

You need to learn to speak clearly and concisely.

Even more bad news for Unknown and her hacked pals: https://theintercept.com/2017/03/16/key-democratic-officials-now-warning-base-not-to-expect-evidence-of-trumprussia-collusion/


snip: "Key Democratic officials are clearly worried about the expectations that have been purposely stoked and are now trying to tamp them down. Many of them have tried to signal that the beliefs the base has been led to adopt have no basis in reason or evidence.

The latest official to throw cold water on the MSNBC-led circus is President Obama’s former acting CIA chief Michael Morell."

This is from 2 days ago so Unknown should be just about ready to "learn" this as it is just within her standard "behind the curve by 36 hours" capability.

Keep hope alive!

Let's agree that Germany doesn't pay its fair share in respect to defence. Wouldn't the smart play be to reduce our defence spending on NATO in order to force them to spend more or face whatever consequences that result from their lack of spending? Why would we commit to spending more on defence? Doesn't this undermine our bargaining position? Dumb American's keep spending on defence so we don't have to.

Why are we in Europe (and NATO) at all? It made sense when there was an international communist bloc that was interested in imposing their way of life on us. But there isn't any more. If war comes to Europe again there are no US interests at stake - let the Europeans work it out. If I were president I would tell Frau Merkel "Look, you have ten years. Ten years from now the only US servicemen in Europe will be on vacation. Start fielding whatever forces you think you'll need to defend yourself."

I am predicting that Gorsuch will be accused of being a secret Nazi party member by the end of the second afternoon.

I'm betting that they stick to tradition and dredge up some last minute sexual harassment charges.

Nato, and even individual country defense.
I've heard it said that if Turkey wanted they could march from Istanbul to Chunnel exit in two weeks. Germany's soldiers are Unionized, only work from 8 to 4, and not on weekends have no ammunition reserves, and seldom if ever hold a live fire exercise because of a lack of ammunition. Turkey has none of these problems. And not only train they have real live fire practice with the PKK, who kill their share of the Turks who have learned all those lessons well. Combined Artillery and Maneuver would be a disaster for the Germans. They'd run out of TOW missiles first day, and most would fail for countermeasures, plus a lack of trained maintenance staff, union and budgets again. I'd expect Bonn and Paris to sue for terms in the first week and expect the U.N. Blue Helmets to reverse Turkey's gains as they begin large scale resettlement of their own grievance community who have complained most loudly about their abuse by the German's. Which will mean another partitioning of Germany. Talk about chicken's coming home to roost. And Nato would be left there sitting on its thumbs because all the Nato armories are empty, budget and a belief war will never return, and if it did Daddy U.S. will be there to save U.S.
