    Surprised, what changed to cause ~ 20% drop?

    I think flip-flopping and Trump's erratic behavior may have had something to do with it.

    His armament of Saudi Arabia is a serious concern. I think. This may cause uncertainty and anxiety to everyone. They are uncertain about his sanity and also his actions. It is a high probability that if shit headed Saudis overthrow their King which is very easy, they would have oil and weapons directed at Lebanon's Christians and Shi'a and Israel's Jews. He is the ally of the Devil.

    Direct death threats don't violate Facebook's "community standards," yet people are routinely banned for expressing opinions.

    Incredible.

    Why Democrats don't like Joe Lieberman
    [​IMG]
    By Jodi Enda, Managing Editor

    Trump says Joe Lieberman one of his top picks for FBI job

    Lieberman, a longtime Democratic senator, became a pariah in his own party in 2008 when he not only endorsed the presidential bid of his GOP buddy, John McCain, but lambasted his own party's nominee, Barack Obama, during a speech at the Republican Convention.

    Now, it's Republicans, rather than Democrats, who are welcoming the news that President Donald Trump might nominate Lieberman to head the FBI. And it is Republican senators, and possibly a smattering of Democrats, who would most likely vote to confirm him.
    "Joe Lieberman is probably the only person that could get 100 votes in the Senate," Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican who earlier this week took himself out of the running to be FBI director, tweeted Thursday in the kind of overstatement common in the capital these days.
    Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican and one of Lieberman's closest Senate friends, called him a "pillar of credibility."
    But not all Democrats all see it that way.
    "I don't think many Democrats in the Senate are going to take it very well," said veteran strategist Jim Manley.
    A Senate Democratic leadership aide told CNN "the overwhelming majority" of Senate Democrats would vote against Lieberman.
    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said Trump should pick someone from law enforcement.
    "I think that the political part of this is not the best part for the FBI," Feinstein said on CNN's "The Situation Room." "The FBI has to have someone that every member of that agency respect because they know their law enforcement, they know they're not going to cave to political whims, and they know that they're talented in doing the law enforcement job."
    Perhaps it's not surprising that Trump, a nascent politician who never has adhered to party orthodoxy, would be drawn to Lieberman, a long-time officeholder who didn't either.
    Like Trump, Lieberman never fit squarely into a box. And like Trump, Lieberman always did what he saw fit, critics be damned.
    In 1968, Lieberman ran the Connecticut presidential campaign of liberal Democrat Robert F. Kennedy. Twenty years later, he ran for the Senate. And for much of his two dozen years there, he was a centrist who, like Bill Clinton, tried to offer an alternative to the liberal vision that long dominated the Democratic Party.
    But Lieberman saw himself as a moralist. An Orthodox Jew who often invoked his religious upbringing, Lieberman took to the Senate floor in September 1998 to chastise Clinton for engaging in an extramarital affair with a White House intern, Monica Lewinsky. While he stopped short of calling for Clinton's impeachment, Lieberman branded the President's behavior "immoral" and "disgraceful" in a speech that many of his colleagues viewed as unnecessarily sanctimonious.
    It turns out that upbraiding the President of his own party didn't hurt Lieberman. In fact, his star rose.
    In 2000, Clinton's vice president and would-be successor, Al Gore, chose Lieberman as his running mate, making him the first Jew on a major-party ticket. Gore won the popular vote, but not the Electoral College. Some even blamed Lieberman after he botched part of the recount in an election so close it ultimately was decided by the Supreme Court.

    Once again, Lieberman went on to live another life back in the Senate. But he edged farther away from the center of his party. After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Lieberman supported President George W. Bush's plans to create the Department of Homeland Security. He also was one of the Democrats' staunchest supporters of the Iraq War.

    Top Republican: Coup Attempt Against Trump Being Led by GOP Insiders

    Goal is to force Trump to resign

    An attempt to force Donald Trump to resign from office is being led by GOP establishment insiders in concert with the Democratic-aligned media, according to a top Republican.

    Author, journalist and Middle East Forum fellow David P. Goldman reveals that the unnamed ranking Republican told an off the record gathering this week that, “A “coup” attempt was in progress against President Donald Trump, with collusion between the largely Democratic media and Trump’s numerous enemies in the Republican Party.”

    “The object of the coup, the Republican leader added, was not impeachment, but the recruitment of a critical mass of Republican senators and congressmen to the claim that Trump was “unfit” for office and to force his resignation,” writes Goldman.

    Although it is unlikely that Trump will be impeached and virtually impossible that he will ever resign from office, the goal is to keep his administration mired in scandal so that Trump cannot advance his policy agenda.

    This fits with our previous reporting, which exposed how individuals within Trump’s inner circle are already preparing to become the face of the effort to remove him from office.

    The “coup” attempt is being organized by the usual suspects – John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Paul Ryan.

    While some on the left continue to insist that the “deep state” itself is a “conspiracy theory,” the notion of a coup d’état is being seriously discussed by the likes of CNBC’s Jake Novak, who writes that this week’s Russia-Trump intelligence “leak” was part of the scheme, and that the leaks were possibly coming from “someone close to President Trump himself is essentially acting like a mole in the White House.”




    “The really alarming news is that the duly-elected President of the United States appears to be the target of a political coup,” writes Novak, adding that Trump has not committed any single impeachable offense but, “The bottom line is that we have some very powerful people in Washington who really don’t like how democracy played out this time around and what they do to attack it next isn’t going to be any better than what they’re doing now.”

    It was intentional. But he was drunk. It is not a terrorist attack.

    I was there

    Even the translator is non hijab

    Trump during his winning presidential campaign and in the first several months of his presidency has argued the United States can no longer be the world’s police officer and that other nations must become more self-sufficient in efforts to combat terrorism and in protecting themselves against rogue nations like Iran and North Korea.

    Trump arrived in Saudi Arabia early Saturday as the start to his nine-day, overseas tour that will also take him to Israel and Europe. The international trip is Trump’s first since taking office in January.
