Donald Trump claims that in America "We don't fight to win."

Courtesy of The Week: 

President Donald Trump slammed the American military Monday, complaining the U.S. doesn't "fight to win." 

"Win. We have to win. We have to start winning wars again," Trump said. "I have to say, when I was young, in high school and college, everybody used to say that we never lost a war. 'We never lost a war.' You remember." 

"And now we never win a war," Trump added. "We never win. And we don't fight to win."

According to icasualties.org since 2001 we have lost a total of 3,528 soldiers in Afghanistan who were "not trying to win." And another 4,837 soldiers in Iraq also apparently just phoning it in.

And let's not forget that this is coming from a man whose VERY FIRST military operation caused the death of an American serviceman, the loss of a 90 million dollar aircraft, and killed an 8 year old girl.

Is THIS what he calls "winning?"

By the way I think there is no longer any doubt that Donald Trump is going to lead this country into a war, just so he can make his point, and also make his mark on the history books.

    Americans agrees with President Trump that when we go to war, we are there to win and to offset our costs we need to take whatever of value is there.

    1. This American does not agree with your comment at all. We should not be going to war and we are not people who take the spoils of war. You do not speak for all Americans, nor do I. But if we do go to war, I hope you sign up and do your part to show your commitment to your beliefs.

      Conservatives believe Trump's travel expenses are a conspiracy against Trump

      No, conservatives really are just dumb, part the whatevereth, CPAC edition.

      Donald Ely, 83, a Pennsylvania Republican Party official, had heard the stories of Trump’s travel expenses. But he wasn’t sure he could trust them.
      “I resented Obama going to all these places overseas, particularly because his agenda was anti-American,” Ely said. “But the way people make up the stories about the Trumps, I don’t know if I believe it. I don’t think it’s accurate.” [...]

      “I believe that the story exists,” Herstein said. “But the facts in it can’t possibly be right. That absolutely can’t be right. How did Trump spend $10 million in one month and Obama spent $11 million in a year? It defies logic.” [...]

      “I don’t trust the bookkeepers. I don’t trust the people who say, ‘This president spent X and this president spent Y,’” said Roy Postel, 58, a real estate developer from near Chicago.....

      More than half of all eligible American voters didn't vote. Of the less than half that did: 62 million voted for Trump
      74 million VOTED against Trump. So we're now at the point where it's not possible for more than 20% of Americans to agree with Trump at any time about any thing.

    Trump building Marine One pad at Mar-a-Lago

    What do you get for a $200,000 membership fee at Mar-a-Lago? A “gigantic” hole in the middle of your club’s lawn, apparently.

    We’re told that President Trump has begun building a large helipad on the grounds of his private club in Palm Beach, Fla., so that Marine One can fly in directly.

    At the moment, the president lands at a nearby airport and transfers to a car for his weekly visits to his “Winter White House,” but that is causing too much trouble

    We’re told the 40- to 50-foot-wide dirt pit on the west lawn is currently surrounded by bright orange construction posts. But club insiders say that members are willing to put up with the eyesore, because they hope it will reduce the traffic that is caused when the president’s motorcade rolls though.

    “Even if you live a block away, it can take an hour and a half to get into the club when Trump’s in town, with all the security and extra traffic.”

    Meanwhile, we’re told POTUS flew over the club in Air Force One last weekend, to “salute his people.” Apparently members were “thrilled.”

    Reps didn’t get back to us.

    "If you don't fully fund the State Department, then I need to buy more ammunition."

    CNN:
    Retired generals: Don't cut State Department

    By Nicole Gaouette

    Washington (CNN)
    More than 120 retired generals and admirals signed a letter Monday pushing back on the White House's proposal to make major cuts to diplomacy and development.

    Retired Gen. David Petraeus, a former CIA director, and retired Adm. James Stavridis, the former NATO supreme allied commander, are among the former three- and four-star generals who wrote that State Department funding is "critical to keeping America safe." They sent the letter to congressional leaders, two Cabinet officials and the White House national security adviser...

    They went on to quote a 2013 remark by Defense Secretary James Mattis while commander of US Central Command: "If you don't fully fund the State Department, then I need to buy more ammunition."

    Paul Manafort allegedly paid to set up 2012 meeting between Donald Trump and Kremlin rep

    Just how far back did Russia’s plan to install Trump go?

    Just how many years back does Russia’s plot to install Donald Trump as president go? This week it was uncovered that while Paul Manafort was Trump’s campaign manager in 2016, a member of the Ukrainian government tried to blackmail him over two allegations. We’ve already heard one of them: the Kremlin paid Manafort millions of dollars in off the books payments. But the second is that Manafort was doing the Kremlin’s bidding with regard to Trump as far back as five years ago.

    The blackmail threat allegedly came from Serhiy Leshchenko, a member of the Ukrainian parliament, though he denies being involved. One of the claims made is that while Paul Manafort was being paid by the Kremlin to get Russian puppet Viktor Yanukovych elected in the Ukraine, it also had Manafort set up a meeting between Yanukovych’s close associate Serhiy Tulub and Donald Trump.

    ...Paul Manafort is now admitting that his daughter did in fact receive the blackmail texts purporting to be from Serhiy Leshchenko. According to Politico, which first broke the story, he’s denying that he’s guilty of any of the allegations made against him. But he’s offering no explanation as to why he didn’t notify U.S. authorities when a foreign operative tried to blackmail him while he was running a major presidential campaign.

    Donald Trump cabinet member and business associate co-owned Russian money laundering bank

    Bank was taking money from Russia and loaning money to Trump

    ...The other involved Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev buying a house from Trump and then making the strange habit up flying into town wherever Trump goes. Now it turns out they’re two halves of the same Trump-Russia scandal.

    As we’ve previously reported, Deutsche Bank has mysteriously loaned more than a billion dollars to Donald Trump and his business partners over the past few years, at a time when most other banks viewed him as too big a risk. We’ve also reported that Deutsche Bank was busted for laundering Russian money for clients in places like New York, where Trump lives, raising the question of whether its willingness to float loans to Trump was really just a cover for Russia to funnel money to him.

    But as it turns out, Deutsche Bank was laundering the money through Bank of Cyprus. The two most prominent owners of Bank of Cyprus? One is Donald Trump’s associate Dmitry Rybolovlev (source). The other is Donald Trump’s new Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross (source). That’s the missing link established by Rachel Maddow on her MSNBC show tonight. And suddenly, you realize this is all one larger scandal.

    Russia was laundering money into Deutsche Bank, through another bank owned by two Donald Trump associates, at the same time it just happened to be inexplicably loaning large sums of money to Trump even though he was a poor investment risk. Trump then rewarded one of the go-between bank’s owners by making him the U.S. Secretary of Commerce. And the other owner of the bank just happens to be the guy who does real estate business with Trump and keeps flying into whatever town Trump visits whenever he’s away from the White House.

    Dick Durbin Warns Failure to Investigate Trump is a Failure to Defend Democracy

    ...Brzezinski said Trump’s attacks on the media are “somewhat disturbing,” prompting Durbin to say, “It’s beyond that.”

    “It’s troubling, because he’s questioned the integrity of our judiciary, so-called judges and judges you can’t trust because of their ethnic background, and then he goes in and goes after the media…The fact is, this is a tenuous moment in American history. We’re being tested, we will be tested on some very fundamental constitutional principles.”

    Asked by Mark Halperin if he thought Republicans would “do a thorough apolitical investigation,” Durbin answered,

    Durbin: “I can tell you I sat on the intelligence committee for four years. You couldn’t find the room we met in. Our meetings were in secret. They were classified…we need an independent and transparent investigation.”

    Halperin: “But do you trust Mitch McConnell…and other Republicans to do that?”

    Durbin: “No, I think that we need a special prosecutor or an independent commission.”

    Halperin: “Is that because you don’t trust your senate Republican colleagues?”

    Durbin: “I believe the venue they have chosen guarantees the American people will not know what is said and ultimately months from now, maybe years from now, they will produce a classified report which they’ll say is available to the American people if approval is gained from the White House.”

    And he warned that this is bigger than just its effect on Americans: by failing to take Trump’s Russian scandal seriously we are perplexing and worrying our allies, causing them to question whether, since we won’t defend ourselves, how can we be trusted to defend them?

    Durbin correctly pointed out that Republicans feel like they should be investigating the Affordable Care Act, not other Republicans. The GOP cannot be trusted to investigate Donald Trump in an apolitical and transparent manner. As President Bush said this morning, we need answers. And by we, he meant the American people.

    Trump Will Gut Environmental Protections To Fund Unnecessary Military Spending

    The administration also plans to go after EPA climate programs put into place during Obama's time in the White House.

    In order to fund an unnecessary $54 billion increase in U.S. defense spending, Donald Trump is taking a sledgehammer to the Environmental Protection Agency, including protections enacted by former President Barack Obama.

    According to Politico, “The White House has proposed slashing EPA’s budget by about a quarter and eventually eliminating 1 in 5 of the agency’s workers, according to sources familiar with the budget proposal sent to EPA on Monday.”

    The administration also plans to go after EPA climate programs put into place during Obama’s time in the White House. Trump has already repealed a rule put in place by the previous administration that prevented coal companies from dumping their waste into nearby bodies of water.

    More from Politico on Trump’s historic cuts:

    That budget proposal would set EPA’s budget at $6.1 billion, down from its current level of $8.1 billion, according to two sources outside the agency. EPA’s budget hasn’t been that low since 1991, according to agency records. One of those sources also said that the White House has proposed reducing EPA’s 15,000-strong workforce to 12,000, a level not seen since the mid-1980s.

    The Trump administration’s assault on the environment is helping to fund an unnecessary spending boost for the Pentagon, which has said in recent years that it doesn’t need more money. Not to mention the fact that the United States military budget is bigger than that of the next seven nations combined – and we are no longer mired in two ground wars in the Middle East.

    Sean Spicer: Portrait Of A Man On Tilt
    Bunkered and beleaguered, Trump’s press secretary is lashing out in all directions.

    Whenever cable news broadcasts the regular White House press briefings these days, there’s a moment you’re likely to catch if you’re able to maintain interest in the proceedings. Sean Spicer will get animated ― shoutish and emotional ― and begin to weave away from whatever the message of the day might be. He’ll pick fights, he’ll air grievances ― mostly he’ll fall back on some flailing, superficial appearance of toughness and feigned stability. Poker players ― and fans of hacky poker movies ― have a name for this condition: tilt.

    This is the quality that “Saturday Night Live” and its guest portrayer of Spicer, Melissa McCarthy, mined for great comedic effects. It’s also what The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple noticed, detailed in a Sunday piece titled “Sean Spicer Is Losing His Grip.” Chances are you’ve noticed it too.

    (essay by Bill Maher)
    As I listened to Steve Bannon, a chill ran through me. The first time he said it, I thought I had misheard. The second time, I was sure. the third time I was horrified. It explained EVERYTHING, yet no one in the room had heard. "Deconstruction of the administrative. " And there it was. The reason that someone who wanted to destroy the Environmental Protection Agency was given the top job at the EPA. The reason someone who wanted to close all schools got the job in charge of education. The reason a surgeon who wants to eliminate public housing got that job. But, that is not what made my blood run cold. See, whilst the Republicans in the room whooped it up with delight because they keep saying they don't like paying taxes, cut public works - it is socialist, they had not "heard" what the madman was saying. Unlike Mein Kampf telling us what Hitler wanted to do, Steve Bannon doesn't need to write a book. It has already been written. And like the phrase the "Third Reich" that was coined by van den Bruck, it uses a similar set of predictions in a new political ideology called The Fourth Political Theory.

    See, when Bannon stood there at his conference and declared that they would deconstruct the administrative, he wasn't talking about America. He was talking about the world! Steve Bannon is nothing but honest. He has told everyone for a long time what he is all about. He is an ardent follower of the principles of the Fourth Political Theory and has long since declared that he is a Leninist. He even declared that every single morning he is pushing this ideology onto Trump just to make sure he stays on track.

    So, what is the Fourth Political Theory? Its tag-line is simple. "Beyond left and right but against the center." Doesn't that sound exactly like the Trump administration? Hell, he isn't even a Republican! The Fourth Political Theory was designed by Alexander Dugin. Whilst everyone is scrambling to find the Russian-Link, perhaps this is the one that they are missing. DUGIN IS PUTIN'S STEVE BANNON!!!

    Essentially this "theory" is a mish-mash of communism, fascism and corporatism and wants what it calls "a traditional society," a society based on caste, religion and "pre-modernity." They want to take us back to the dark ages and reject, and this is a quote, "progress, development, equality, justice and freedom, " leaving a dictator behind to control it all. They talk about the "global rehabilitation of Tradition, the sacred, the religious, the caste related, the hierarchical and not equality, justice or freedom. " Basically, the administrative deconstruction of world order with only one or two leaders and the people will accept it because they have religion. (Sounds like they are halfway there with the Republican voters as it is!)

    So, when Bannon continually stated he is using Trump to deconstruct the administrative, he is doing the bidding of Alexander Dugin, who states, "American Liberalism must be DESTROYED. " And. "We need to return....to the New Middle Ages......The Modernity is wrong - science, values, philosophy, art, society....We are going to end it. " It sounds like the 1933 rants of Heidegger that even Nazis thought was off his rocker. (please see rest below)

    This is why Bannon told Trump in the next few years America will war with China leading to Trump just declaring that he will be asking for the largest nuclear arms budget ever. This is why Bannon is telling Trump he will get worldwide resistance, but to keep going. This is why the National Front of Le Pen, leading in France polling for the upcoming election, wants to destroy Europe and join an alliance with Russia - she even tweeted "I answer yes to the invitation of Steve Bannon....to work together." This is why Trump is so pro-Russia - because he is nothing more than a vessel for Bannon. (We know this because he did not even realize that he was promoting Bannon to National Security Council WITHOUT background checks in an unprecedented move that removed the director of national intelligence and the chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff.) This is why Trump does what he likes and does not care for laws or rules or budgets because Bannon has made him see that none of it will matter when he is the master in the West and Putin is the master in the east.

    It is absolutely perilous to ignore the influence of Dugin on Putin, with his "expand-or-die" philosophy because Russia can never be at peace with its neighbors. It is now equally perilous to ignore the influence Bannon has on Trump. Russia and Ukraine. America and Mexico. Bannon and Dugin advising Putin and Trump to "go apocalyptic" in order to survive (Last War of the World-Island Dugin 2015)

    Does Trump know he’s president?

    The Trump administration so far has been smoke and mirrors, sound and fury, self-proclaimed victimhood and angry tweets. Where is the substance? Where is the competence? And where — increasingly — is the public support?

    ...You might think the president would be fully engaged in some of these issues, but you’d be wrong. Instead, he has been waging a ridiculous war against the media. His cries of “fake news” may play well with the base, but he’s not running for president at the moment. He’s supposed to be doing the job.

    A split has emerged among Trump’s top advisers. It could have major repercussions.

    THE MORNING PLUM:

    As your humble blogger has argued, there is a risk that President Trump may sell out his working-class, white base by going along with congressional Republicans who want to cut deeply into safety net programs that benefit those voters — including the Affordable Care Act. This, even though Trump repeatedly signaled to those voters that he is not an ideological conservative on economic issues that matter to them.

    But now The Post has some important new reporting that suggests a split has opened up among top Trump advisers around this very topic. Some of them appear to be balking at such a course of action — and it’s telling that one of them is Stephen K. Bannon, because he is the keeper of the eternal flame of Trump “populism.”

    A divided White House still offers little guidance on replacing Obamacare

      Drumpf doesn't even know definitions of policy, ideological, conservative, populism, even leader. He is just so ignorant.

  29. Absolutely. He is going to start war so he can drop those nukes he is itching to use and so he can say that America won a war on his watch.

    It will be Yemen a million times worse.

    I only hope there are military officers high enough up that defy him and simply say NO.

    Someone needs to muzzle this toddler and then sit on his head until he is impeached or found incompetent and relieved of his authority.

    Paul Ryan Just Dropped The PERFECT Bombshell On Trump, HUMILIATES Him Over Russia (VIDEO)

    ...Trump has denied over and over again that Russia meddled in the U.S. election, and has repeatedly shot down and offended the CIA and other intelligence organizations in order to protect Russia and his favorite tyrant, Vladimir Putin. So when Ryan responded to the question with the exact opposite stance that Trump has taken, it made the former reality television star look even more foolish than before. Clearly, this is yet another thing that the Republican Party is divided on right now.

    Ryan stated very bluntly that Russia without a doubt DID mess with the U.S. election on Trump’s behalf, further embarrassing Trump for his ridiculous defense of the country. Ryan said:

    “We know Russia meddled in the election. No one is disputing that. And this last government gave us that information in the first place. No one is alleging that some American was in on it beforehand.”

    And yet, there’s still a little problem with Ryan’s statement – the part where he says “no one is disputing that.” Let’s remind him that just yesterday, Trump tried to convince everyone that all this “Russia talk is FAKE NEWS” and blamed the Democratic Party and media for being petty and bitter over the election loss.

    Over 58,000 US troops--58 thousand+ brave young men--died in Vietnam. Also courageous women who were nurses, support personnel, and the famous photographer Dickey Chappelle. The US won the battles, but ceded victory for political reasons.

    The average infantryman in Vietnam saw 240 days of combat in a year, a figure unparalleled in Iraq or Afghanistan or WWII. This was little Donnie's big chance to man up and accept a real challenge. But he is not a man, and he is not the president. He's a poser, a loser, a weakling supported by toadies and yes men. Sooner or later his charade will implode, hopefully before he does too much damage. We are seeing it happen before our eyes. The idiot is narrating his own downfall on twitter.

    Trump is not my president. I wouldn't spit on him if his guts were on fire.

    At that one town hall meeting,Senator Tom Cotton told that 7-year old boy "We can have PBS or we can have the wall, but we can't do both." Well, if we can't afford PBS and the wall, then why do they think we can afford a war and the wall?

      Trump will put it on the same credit card that Bush used and then declare bankruptcy when the nation cannot pay the bill because there will be nothing left after the nuclear annihilation that will come soon enough.
      PS I think it is an absolute lie that the US cannot afford public television and radio. The GOP simply does not want all of the people to have equal access to excellent programming. Good shows for kids and good dramas, documentaries and "great performances" should only be available to the rich, or so the GOP thinks.

    Soldiers don't get lined up to get to the top of the next hill and push the other soldiers back. That doesn't happen anymore because of the kinds of weapons that EACH SIDE has now. Maybe Trump should have been drafted in the 1960's. It would be interesting to see if Trump would say the same thing idiocies today if he had spent a year or more as a foot soldier in Vietnamese jungle terrain fighting against a guerrilla war, in a place far from home where combatants and noncombatants all look alike and dress alike, because that is what warfare is like now. In the 21st century, replace jungle heat with desert heat and have the combatants and noncombatants on the other side all look alike, but the style of warfare remains the same.

    Playing with tin or plastic soldiers all in a line doesn't work anymore. Is Trump threatening to use nuclear weapons? (My fingers tremble as I typed that.) Has Trump not paid any attention to what fighting in these situations is like? What is wrong with that man?

    President Obama never served in the military either. But he understood and appreciated the difficulties of engaging militarily in places where it is almost impossible to tell "good guy" from "bad guy" and where there are a lot of totally innocent people in between. Why, oh why, is Donald Trump such an insensitive, ignorant imbecile?

    When most of us were honoring our draft notices, Trump was seeking 5 deferments. Now he is hellbent on sending our kids to war. Uday and Usay Trump should be the first to go, since they love hunting so much. Oh, that's right, animals can't shoot back.
