My Spanglish is a bit rusty, but the bilingual parts didn't either.
apparently, we need to "ban the weapons of war" from us having them.
Damn, i had a good line on a used patriot missile battery too!

Oh, and of course CLIMATE CHANGE. AND, Orange man bad!

Sorry, I did not watch that clown show, was the President's comment here sarcasm or did that pair of numbnuts actually refrain from their usual practice of hyper-partisan leading softball questions without follow up?

House approves bipartisan border funding bill, after Pelosi reverses course under GOP pressure

Pelosi caves, and lets house approve senate bill for border funding, without the hamstringing details in it.

SS must’ve been like “wtf?!!!?” When he crossed over and walked towards the access road. Dems are gonna have a tough time saying all he wants is war.
The leftists on Facebook are completely losing their minds over this. Ive seen numerous posts about people wishing the N. Koreans would kidnap Trump.

Stephanie Grisham's first day on the job and she shows she isn't afraid to push back. Lol, I can't wait to see how she handles Jim Acosta.

Soros and Koch brothers team up to end US ‘forever war’ policy - The Boston Globe
“The Quincy Institute will invite both progressives and anti-interventionist conservatives to consider a new, less militarized approach to policy,” Bacevich said, when asked why he signed up. “We oppose endless, counterproductive war. We want to restore the pursuit of peace to the nation’s foreign policy agenda.”

In concrete terms, this means the Quincy Institute will likely advocate a withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan and Syria; a return to the nuclear deal with Iran; less confrontational approaches to Russia and China; an end to regime-change campaigns against Venezuela and Cuba; and sharp reductions in the defense budget.

It aims to issue four reports before the end of 2019: two offering alternative approaches to the Middle East and East Asia, one on “ending endless war,” and one called “democratizing foreign policy.” Its statement of principles asserts that the United States “should engage with the world, and the essence of engagement is peaceful cooperation among peoples. For this reason, the United States must cherish peace and pursue it through the vigorous practice of diplomacy. . . The use of armed force does not represent American engagement in the world. Force ends human life, destroying engagement irreparably. Any resort to force should occur only as a last resort and should remain infrequent. The military exists to defend the people and territory of the United States, not to act as a global police force.”

The depth of this heresy can only be appreciated by recognizing the meretricious power that nourishes Washington’s think-tank ecosystem. These “talk shops” employ experts who pop up to advise politicians, journalists, Congressional staff members, and the public. They write opinion columns and bloviate on news channels. In foreign policy, all major Washington think tanks promote interventionist dogma: the United States faces threats everywhere, it must therefore be present everywhere, and “present” includes maintaining more than 800 foreign military bases and spending trillions of dollars on endless confrontations with foreign countries. That, with some variation, is the ethos that moves conservative think tanks like the American Enterprise Institute and the Heritage Foundation as well as liberal ones like the Center for American Progress and the Brookings Institution. Just as pernicious as their relentless support of the global-hegemony project is the corruption that lies behind it. Many Washington think tanks are supported by industries and foreign powers eager to inflate threats in order shape American law, policy and public opinion. Their “experts” are often paid shills who cloak themselves in institutional respectability so they can masquerade as independent analysts.

Kind of hard to argue against much of that tbh. After seeing the name Soros in the Globe my kneejerk reaction is to dismiss it but no more America World Police sounds good to me. Devils in the details Im sure, like what plans do they have for the trillions not going into DoD?

I am not a fan of endless war, but these two don't want our foreign policy to keep interfering with their plans to fundamentally change the world into a o a plutocracy run by them and their friends.

I'm pretty sure Soros is doing the bidding of various intelligence services in exchange for getting to personally profit off the chaos he creates. I think the CIA/MI6 are well beyond their civilian oversight and thoroughly engaged in attempting to rig foreign & domestic politics to suit their leadership and friendly cronies to what they think is best. Not exactly a shadow government, but putting their thumbs as heavily as possible on the scale to tilt things in the general direction they want.
