The reason Trump may not run next year. He will not want to be known as a "looser."

...Trump will lose the next election. Almost everyone knows it. Trump loves his "brand." When he loses by a historic amount, (which he will) he will be known as worse than McGovern or Carter. The amount will be 10 to 15 percent. (maybe more). Whoever runs against him could get as much as 65 to 70 percent of the vote. It will destroy his "brand" or the Trump name forever. (somewhat like Nixon)
..Since he will be known forever as a "total looser", that is the reason he will not run. He will take a break, play a lot of golf. and will be known as an "ex president", and someone who had the good intentions of not running. His stature as "Ex President" will be greater than if he runs and looses. Also, Trump doesn't like being questioned all the time. Yes, he lies about it, and that is ok with him, but I don't think it is ok with the family. It would be much easier for all, including Trump, if he doesn't run.

He defended using the high-resolution image of the disaster in the tweet: "We had a photo and I released it, which I have the absolute right to do."

(high resolution classified picture at link below, it is now on the front page of the NY Times)

Press Secy to Cuomo: "The President Doesn't Lie" starts at 4:51..

This is the entire interview..watch all if you want..But the heated conversation....

starts at 4:51..."The President is not bullying anyone.." watch after that...She also says, "The press lies.."the president does not lie to anyone." Exact words, "He doesn't lie." She says this at about 6:50..and farther on, she says, "No I don't think the president lies, the press lies.."

This interview shows how much team Trump lies. This person lies about lying, and she does it with a straight face. Just as if she is telling the truth...Her lies on this video are very special in my opinion.

Earthquake strikes 178 Miles Off Oregon Coast: KEZI.com



COOS BAY, Ore. -- Just after 8 this morning, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Oregon, according to the USGS.

According to the USGS website, there were more than 350 reports of people feeling shaking from the coast, inland to Eugene, even all the way inland to Bend. Plus, there are reports of shaking as far north as Seattle.

The reason so many people felt the shaking is because this was a shallow earthquake, only 3.3 miles deep, according to KEZI 9 News Meteorologist Andrew Shipotofsky.

The earthquake struck 178 miles off the coast of Coos Bay, USGS reported. There is no threat of a tsunami from this earthquake, the USGS said.

Drip, Drip, Drip, and Drip

A little here and a little there. It is all coming out, and it is just a matter of time. Like Watergate, but worse in many ways. But the drip, drip, drip and drip is exactly the same. Get a little here and a get a little there. This confirms that and so on. This one said that, and so on. Will it end the same way? No one knows, but actually in some ways, it looks worse than Watergate.

About Stuart G

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.
