Did we learn nothing from our break with the monarchy?  If you have a bloodline connection to any previous administration, you don't have my vote.  Sure, I might be eliminating one or two qualified people, but would have knocked out W, Hillary, and Jeb. You can't tell me that with 300 odd million people out here we can't find a qualified non-relative for the job.

No, we're 90% assholes so she's toast. Which is okay, really, because no sane person likes her. But if you think this is about policy, you are as nuts as they come. This is about her refusal to line up to kiss Trump's ass, nothing more. The people here who are against her have zero awareness of her policy votes or positions, only that she is against Trump. If she'd gone MAGA, she'd be able to run for re-election unopposed for decades.

But, y'know, be careful what you wish for, because her replacement is going to be a national embarrassment.

Comrade terrorista kurtster, 

But he did move the Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv which is internationally recognized Israeli territory to Jerusalem in recognition of the great ethnic cleansing terrorist accomplishments of the post-1967 state of Israel.  

So comrade terrorista kurtster, how many lives of fellow Americans are you willing to sacrifice so Israel can annex Jerusalem and intimidate and bully the original Semitic peoples out of Jerusasalem as part of overall the Israeli ethnic cleansing terrorism nationa-building project?

10, 20, 100, a few thousand?

The number of illegal settlers in the West Bank now exceeds the number of original, mostly Semitic peoples who occupied the then Palestinian Mandate and were ethnically cleansed by Palestinian Jewish terrorists and later Israel terrorists 

All the other rich western countries aside the from Israel and the USA have stopped taking resources from others through violence.  Do you believe that culturally superior peoples such as Americans and Jewish Israelis should be able to 'kill and take'?

The irony?  Many, probably most Jewish Americans regard Donald J. Trump as anti-Jewish.  Most liberal, secular Jewish Americans that I have met over the decades  probably loath and hate the man.  Ungrateful, eh?

Nah, my point is that the current Australia government developed their China policy to curry favour with the US at the detriment to our economy and most importantly without having any chance of affecting China's behaviour. What do the republicans say about defending your allies now? Not hearing any support.

What war did Obama start? Or Bill Clinton? And GHW Bush obtained 12 UN Security Council Resolutions and the participation of 34 other countries in the liberation of Kuwait, so maybe you should stop parroting the BS of Trump's on-air flunkeys. 

As for Trump, he certainly ratcheted up tensions with China and North Korea. He also ignored multi-national efforts to negotiate with North Korea over nuclear technology in favor of proclamations of peace with NK even though the US had and has insufficient means of monitoring NK's efforts. 

Trump also pulled out of our agreement with Iran—which we forged with other countries—to limit their refining of uranium towards the goal of producing weapons-grade uranium. Iran's adherence to those limits were verifiable. His policy of "maximum pressure" on Iran failed. 

It's so wonderful that you moved past the 2020 elections. Maybe you could send word to Kevin McCarthy, Moscow Mitch and the other toadies to do the same.

Another diversion. That's a very low bar, considering he continued all the other wars and (increased some) operations.

Then again, one could also argue that POTUSes haven't started any new wars anymore (as declared and approved by Congress) for a while. They now just lob missiles into foreign countries or assassinate people. Because of sacred sovereignty.

And let's not forget it's the Party in the topic that launched those forever wars with near unanimity (and some help from Democrats).

Oh, but China... Maybe you can still lecture them about elections. Oh wait.

.  Good luck with the man you supported in 2020.  China owns him and has receipts to prove it.

Go ahead and pretend what I said about Trump isn't true.  How sure are you that I am wrong about Biden, though.  It's your butt in the Chinese cross hairs, not mine.  You have heard the bit about the missiles, right ?  Or am I misinformed ?
