Like this pic of Trump at G7 Summit.



Don't know what Macron and Merkel wanted, but assuredly it's something stupid and unfair to us. And Trump is like sitting there with arms crossed like...."No".

I love it. That bitch would have easily been a guard in a death camp if she were born earlier. Trump has exceeded my expectations. Abe knows who butters Japan's bread. Trump skipping the climate change session was icing on the cake.

Canadians no longer like the USA; Trump is not effete, like the faggots running Canada and Europe.

I believe that given enough time, Trump can convince Canada to man up again.

Canada is not worth invading, 80% live along the US border anyway, and shop here.

Not a good sign for Canada---Trudeau's "Man Brow" slipped from all the heated talks---maybe some Gorilla Glue is in order for Castro's son.

Trump was probably the most successful chiseler in a room full of chiseler's.
Every one at the meeting knew he was set to negotiate with NK and thought they could force trade concessions,,, in pool they call that a bank shot, they used too much top spin,,, Trump don't do top spin, he's a hustler and has multiple games going simultaneously.

That look on Abe's face is priceless, as in, I flew 6000 miles for this happy horse shit.

And he sure as hell, for all the world to see, backs Trump from day one.

I wish Trump would simply stop all ships from landing at our ports and return everything back where the shit came from.

WE, the USA, can make and produce every single thing we could ever need or use, the rest of these clowns, can't even feed their populations.

And, these people ain't our allies, they are pure adversaries, have been that way for ages.

These same bastards vote against us in the UN every chance they get, screw them and the horse they rode in on.

That picture is classic. One look at it tells the whole tale. And you would not have to recognize any of 'em to pick out who the boss is.

You know he's doing the right thing by how pissed off the rest of 'em are. Call me when that Canadian fruit loop starts saying what a great guy the Donald is but until that happens I'm pretty much cool with all of it. And it beats anything on Netflix.

I liked the fact that Trump showed up late for the gender equality cuck fest. Canada and the European cuckold and cat woman led members really care about their women by flooding their countries with murdering, robbing and raping muzzys and Africans. That is what the DIEversity initiative is all about. Chaos means cash flow in the form of American tax dollars. Blaming all the problems on the white populations of their counties and replacing them with the new voter base. I hope Trump told that old fat communist bitch Merkel to go piss up a rope and cut off all aid.

The women are replacing the native men with hot thug cock. They're getting exactly what they want. When those countries are islamified, the women will be to blame.

This is what happens when you allow women to vote. Handing whiskey and the keys to a new Corvette to teenage boys is more responsible and less damaging than allowing women to vote. We don't allow children to do a great many other things, why let them vote just because they have a vaj?

Humans truly learn nothing from history.

Two thoughts.

Between 7000 and 5000 years ago, according to some recent genetic research, the number of male contributors to the human gene pool was greatly reduced. The number of female contributors did not suffer a similar decline. This observation is easily explained by the advent of warfare between neighboring agrarian communities. You and I are not the descendants of the losers in those conflicts. However, it didn't make much difference to the women.

All human males are 99.9% genetically similar to every other human male. However, we are only 98.5% genetically similar to the males of our next closest species, the bonobo chimpanzee. That is also how far we are genetically from the females of our own species.

Note: I haven't reviewed the recent genetic research in great detail. It could be bullshit, as so many things are.

Careful now big man, telling some folks around here, we're all related to one of only about 1500 males left standing might be too much for some to carry around and still sleep at night.

And that the 1500 or so, all looked just like one another.

I don’t think so Forrest. More like that crazy little bastard could try to lob one and hit his country again. The Japanese are honorable and could get a belly full like they did a few years back. My how the tide changes with a French and German trying to posture against the US. We should have let them fight it out. Abe is projecting the same thing.

Germany after the reunion made the big mistake of not banning former East German politicians from running for public office.

That’s what you get when those cockroaches are taking over the whole country....

Merkel was a member of the East German SED, as were many others.

Honestly, with most of them, I would have practiced the “Romanian Solution”.

The East German government back then also supported actively the West German “Red Army Fraction” terrorists, also known as the Baader-Meinhof gang.

Others might forget.........I do not.

Brother yh,

the nowadays Germans are a far cry from the ones I was used to.

In my opinion the reunion NEVER should have happened, or at a MUCH slower pace. I think that you are educated enough to see that a union / reunion with a communist / socialist country is never a good thing. Examples are many, just look at the mess called Vietnam after the US left.

The West German government after WW2 made several mistakes, let me point out a few:

#1 not disposing of Red Army Fraction terrorists properly (death penalty),
#2 using the terrorist threat to create more strict gun laws,
#3 not dealing harshly enough with the East German government,
#4 not dealing properly with commie / socialist elements of society,
#5 joining the EU,
#6 having the EU dictate certain conditions,
#7 adopting the Euro,
#8 faulting people that were patriots and claiming that they were Nazis,
#9 reducing the people's pride in their nation to zero,
#10 pussyfooting around the Russians and giving them millions of Euros to withdraw their troops from East German soil.

Ok, let me elaborate on one or the other, as mentioned above:
#1.....I would have tried harder to capture each and every Red Army Fraction terrorist and would have executed them after trial, or without, like Mossad did with the terrorists of the Munich massacre.

#2........the common Joe in Germany was unarmed, so to some extent a victim already. Making gun laws more strict was only victimizing him further. In German laws it was said that the monopoly for the use of lethal force lies with the government and its agencies. Citizens are not entitled or authorized to use lethal force against terrorists or criminals. That is up to law enforcement and the military.

#3 The East German government created the "Wall" to keep the western imperialists out, as they said. It was actually there to keep people in their socialist paradise. The Easties restricted travel, and to boost their economy, they charged every citizen a fee of 50 Deutschmarks for visiting relatives over there. I would have sealed off the border and paid that fee in one lump sum, with 155mm and 175mm artillery shells.

#4 the DKP / KPD of West Germany aligned itself with the Red Army Fraction terrorists, and was also known for subversive activities among students. I would have banned the party (which was supported by East Germany) and thrown each member in jail.

#10.......when the Russian occupation forces moved out of East Germany, they ransacked it. Paying money for them leaving, hell no. I would have speeded it up, like we did in the 1st Gulf War when we kicked the Iraqis out of Kuwait. Sure, the West German air force back then did not have any A-10, but neither did the Israelis in the 6-Day War or Yom Kippur, but they still decimated the Egyptian Army in Sinai.

As an add-on, after the reunion I would have had tried to get my hands on each and every East German politician and would have exposed them publicly for what they did to their people, show trial style, and if found guilty, they would have faced sentences starting from 5 years on up. For repeat offenses, work the calculator. M+ is the only applicable function.

In my opinion the reunion NEVER should have happened, or at a MUCH slower pace. I think that you are educated enough to see that a union / reunion with a communist / socialist country is never a good thing. Examples are many, just look at the mess called Vietnam after the US left.

We left for the last time in 84, things were far different then, from our 1st tour in early seventies.

Crazy was already taking over even then.

Spent 11 years total there, defending against someone no longer upright, but replaced by someone nearly as bad.

Nuthin ever changes.

Now the Poles are asking for a full Brigade, 5000 plus, be stationed in Poland permanent, and they pay for all of it.

Folks are getting real worried once again, never a good thing in Europe.

Nature of man, kill off a generation, screw, make more babies, more soldiers, then kill off another generation, repeat as fast as survivors can produce babies/new soldiers.

Our allies have become very accustomed to the US footing the bill. Now they are like spoiled children being told they can't have candy anymore.

I voted for Trump, because a rotten head of cabbage is better than Hillary. But I was never 'really' on Team Trump, until after he stepped foot in office and started kicking ass and taking names.

I love the guy now.

Of course, he's not perfect. But he's pretty damn fantastic.

It's odd. I never liked him before he ran. I really don't like him now. But he's doing a great job and he's headed towards being my favorite president.

Trump has all of our shared enemies, that seems to be enough sometimes, with getting along with/supporting certain people.
