Re: Mueller's investigation of Trump

Politico [snip] “If he didn’t send about 15 tweets that he’s done, he’d be in much better shape than he is right now,” said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University. “I kept thinking he would change from these self-destructive tendencies, but he may be the first president in hi...

Re: The Post and Email

Is OPOVV the one who met Obama in a bar in Hawaii and heard with his own ears Obama say that he would be president even though he was born somewhere else? I think that was a freeper... Was in Hawaii on shore leave and claimed to meet a 9 year old (ish) Obama who just casually insisted he could be P...

Re: They said Parliament was hung and they was right!

I agree that it is likely that the Conservatives will be able to survive (at least in the short term) confidence votes with the combination of Sinn Féin probably not taking their seats and the DUP backing the government. Even were that not the case, the Tories would remain in government until they l...

Re: FBI investigation of Trump

A President cannot pardon himself (or herself) from impeachment. While theoretically he has the power to give a blanket Nixon pardon his entire administration, the political consequences would likely be disastrous. They are having trouble getting Republican congress criters to come on TV and defend ...

Windows 10 home will still be available, and it's actually cheaper to go from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 Pro than it is to go from Windows 10 Home...

Re: North Korea

Very true. An ICBM is, of course, not the only delivery system. The other conventional methods (i.e., via submarine or long-range bombers) also appear to be beyond North Korea's present capabilities. But unconventional methods (e.g., in the belly of a commercial ship in a foreign port) are also pos...

Fortinbras, I agree that a suitcase nuke is a concern. A lot depends though on how advanced the North Koreans are in terms of warhead design. The first nuclear weapons were crude, heavy devices which wouldn't make an ideal weapon to smuggle in. The other thing is that in terms of deterrence a suitca...
