    Where did ISIS, and Mexican drug cartels get their lethal weapons?

    Where was the outcry when billions of dollars went North Korea, the Muslim Brotherhood, Cuban military, Syria, Russia, and American technology to the Chinese military? Any there's more countries who have received military assistance.

    Some day it's going to bite us.

    Another example of a non existent foreign policy.... and a blatant inability to mind our own business.

    @ Shaun: Thank you for pointing out my error! I meant to have said GDP growth rate has more than doubled. The 1.075 % average annual growth in real GDP under Obama equals less than a third (31.57 %) of the 3.405 % average annual growth in real GDP the United States saw in the last two decades of the last century. Today the growth rate is over 3% which is more than double (nearly triple) the average Obama achieved. What is even more exciting is that some economists (not all) have predicted the tax reform recently enacted will cause our GDP growth rate to double again! What will drive that? More money invested into businesses in America instead of overseas! More businesses=more jobs=higher wages=a vastly expanded tax base=more tax revenue! We have much to be thankful for going into 2018! America is in business, again! President Trump and the GOP (not one Democrat voted for this) just gave every American a wonderful future! Merry Christmas America! Merry Christmas to you Shaun!

    Be very careful Mr. Trump, you never want to upset your boss.

    Well, apparently President Trump is "colluding" with the Russians again! Its must be challenging for liberals to believe their own rhetoric any more! Now their message is Trump is a baaaaddd man for selling defensive weapons to the enemy of his "best friend"! lol Rational Americans are rejoicing over our now booming economy, success in defeating ISIS (the jv league), the record stock market, lowest unemployment in 20 years, GDP is double what it was under the previous guy, consumer confidence is way up and several major corporations are now giving $1000 bonuses to hundreds of thousand of their employees to pass along saving in taxes so they can compete with foreigner companies and create even MORE jobs for Americans and America is become great, again! These things REALLY Imagine their crowing if any of these triumphs had happened when the other guy was in the WH! Since they have ALL happened with Donald Trump leading us, liberals are really, really angry and ever more irrational!

    10CC, you are 100% correct.

    Worf, I agree with you 100% too. "President" Trump is most definitely unAmerican, licking the boots of uncle Vladmir at any chance.
    Many may disagree with me, but I think "traitor" is a tad strong for Donald and his family. Close, but not quite. However, Mueller's investigation will likely reveal that it's the perfect moniker.

    @10CC - I agree. Trump wants to appear to be doing something anti-Russia.

    Traitors are not Americans. No matter what unworthy title they hold.

    This is a cosmetic move, and the Russian reaction is likewise facile.

    Unless we're providing ground-to-ground missiles, or surface to air missiles, the Russians don't really care. (They won't send tanks into eastern Ukraine, because they don't need to.)

    The truth in my assertion is manifested by the fact Trump blew past the deadline to implement the sanctions against Russia, a bill that was overwhelmingly passed by the House and Senate (and he signed!), and Trump is far quicker to criticize other Americans... while he's never criticized Vladimir Putin.

    This is a completely transparent show, folks.
