Pakistan was not really an ally. Sometimes, but sometimes an enemy - often both at the same time, depending which part of its government the US was dealing with.
China and Pakistan have long been allies in the "let's fuck with India" game.


They've been an ally and a very expensive one ;)

RE: Everything I said above.
A really interesting take on the Fusion GPS transcript. It gives an opinion that Trump wasn't colluding with the Russians, but rather was a victim of them. It also suggests it was the FBI that was against Clinton (Tweet #38-39).
https://twitter.com/HoarseWisperer/stat ... 8640132096

It concludes:
Quote:
Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson were thrust into the crucible of history with no obligation to act - and many reasons not to - but, bound by their own values, they placed themselves in harms way. Yet, Glenn Simpson sat in a chamber in one of our most revered institutions testifying candidly and openly to a systemic attack on the very foundation of our country - our free and fair elections - and Republicans didn't ask him one question about that. Not one. Instead, the witness to a crime aimed squarely at our country and government laid out how he was accidentally thrust into the role of patriot only to have Republicans attack the witness for having reported the crime.

It's an interesting take but I honestly believe that he knew exactly what was going on and had no problem with it. There's no way he's a victim in all this.

Does nobody else find it incongruous to be alarmed about allowing one foreign power's intelligence services to influence a domestic election, but to not only be fine with allowing another's intelligence agency to do the same, indeed taking the latter's word as evidence against the former?

:?

TL;DR: British spy within US domestic political circles throwing shade about influence of foreign spies within US domestic political circles.

Yeah, if there's anything we can trust more than the word of a spy, it's the word of a spy who's turned to selling his skills as a mercenary. :lol:

Considering the vast majority of the stuff that has been confirmed in that dossier. I'd say the facts are on his side.

The thing to keep in mind about the dossier is that it's simply raw intel, not a full road map to base an investigation on- as is certainly the case from what we've found out lately.

I also feel like conflating Christopher Steele's tipping off the FBI of possible points of interest in regards to the Trump campaign, as well as internal pressures at the FBI's NY division with MEDDLING IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS LOL IRONY is just being pedantic for pedantry's sake.

There's a difference there, and there's a vast difference.

fusion gps doesn't seem like the type of outfit to fuck around. imo what don jr himself has offered up pertaining to his own correspondence confirms collusion by the campaign. not sure how anyone comes to any other conclusion there to be honest.

Agreed. They're professionals and know what the fuck they're doing. Unlike, say, people on this board who dismiss their work out of hand and continue to post RT links instead.

Trump fires Comey, hires Mueller, says he will talk to put this nonsense behind them, then apparently says he's unlikely to talk with Mueller in the interview I mentioned yesterday. http://thehill.com/homenews/administrat ... -interview

In a press conference, Trump repeated there is no collusion. Except when he didn't.

Quote:
TRUMP: Well, I will say this. There is collusion, but it's really with the Democrats and the Russians far more than it is with the Republicans and the Russians. So the witch hunt continues.


So there's no collusion, but there is, but it's with the Democrats more than the Republicans. :?

But literally the very next words out of his mouth in the press conference following that statement...

Quote:
TRUMP: Well, again, John, there has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, or Trump and Russians, no collusion.


:ws:

Watch or read the press conference, reading the transcript is amazingly hilarious. Re-iterating the ridiculous claim about the apparent Democrat advantage int he Electoral College, deflecting to Hillary repeatedly, every time he had no answer to a question, it's all her fault!! http://edition.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1801/10/cnr.07.html

While Trump was making an ass out of himself again in a press conference, the courts dealt him yet another blow, this time blocking his effort to end DACA. Efforts to rescind DACA have no legal merit, basically. http://thehill.com/homenews/administrat ... outrageous

Trump confirms he's a racist, attacking migrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti and Africa, suggesting the US should take more from countries like Norway, you know, lots of white people. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... story.html

Orrin Hatch has issued a please explain - http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/3686 ... e-comments

GOP tax plan is still working, as Walmart lays off thousands to cover the cost of minimum wage increases. The money saved by dumping the Sams Club locations will likely cover any added pay or conditions, meaning they can still pocket the entire tax cut without passing anything to the employees! Great!! :stupider: http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing- ... -employees

You forgot to mention this part:

Quote:
The president, according to a White House official, also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because they help the United States economically.


Seems to me this is less about race and more about return on investment.

Because black people don't contribute to the economy or start businesses or work? It's clearly racist, no black people.

Trump is racist as fuck. Has been for decades. Just look at his policies he's tried to institute during the last year.

But hey, let's try to paint it in a positive light! :)

If he hated Haitians/blacks like you say he does, he wouldn't hire them for Mar-a-Lago.

:lol: So slave owners weren't racist because they had black workers? Same logic as your ridiculous statement.

African migrants more likely to speak English than those U.S. foreign-born migrants, largely working age migrants (moreso than all migrants), participated in the workforce more than others, yet strangely are among the highest to experience poverty in the U.S., which is weird given their qualifications. White America's history with black people is far from being history, it's still blatantly obvious today that racism hasn't gone away.
