Kremlin agrees with Trump that bilateral ties 'at very dangerous low'

  Kremlin agrees with Trump that bilateral ties 'at very dangerous low' The Kremlin said on Friday it fully agreed with U.S. President Donald Trump who said in a Twitter message that Washington's "relationship with Russia is at an all-time and very dangerous low".Trump's comments posted on Thursday came one day after he grudgingly signed new sanctions against Russia into law, a move Moscow said amounted to a full-scale trade war and an end to hopes for better ties with the Trump administration.

An opinion is a judgment, viewpoint, or statement that is not conclusive. A given opinion may deal with subjective matters in which there is no conclusive finding, or it may deal with facts which are sought to be disputed by the logical fallacy that one is entitled to their opinions .

What is the right preposition to use in the phrase ‘an opinion ABOUT or ON what to do …’? It depends on context: “What is the opinion of the court?” “I don’t have much of an opinion of him .” “My opinion about that is…”

If ever there were a foreign policy issue around which our nation should be united, it’s the nuclear threat from North Korea.

Many regimes deserve to be called “criminal,” but few more so than Kim Jong Un’s. Human Rights Watch calls North Korea “one of the most repressive authoritarian states in the world.” It seeks “fearful obedience by using public executions, arbitrary detention, and forced labor.”

Most Americans Think Legal Immigrants Are Good For The Country

  Most Americans Think Legal Immigrants Are Good For The Country Americans overwhelmingly believe legal immigration into the U.S. is a boon for the country, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov survey, with just over a third supporting a decrease in the level of immigration permitted into the U.S. Earlier this month, President Donald Trump lent his support to a bill that would dramatically curtail the number of legal immigrants allowed into the country, potentially cutting the number in half. By a 40-point margin, 58 percent to 18 percent, Americans say that legal immigration is largely a good thing for the country. The remaining 24 percent aren’t sure.

I have come to the same conclusion I hold the same opinion . We are of one mind / of the same mind on that question. I am at one with him on that point.

The group points to a United Nations report documenting “systematic, widespread, and gross human rights violations” that included “murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortion, and other sexual violence.”

North Korea’s actions constituted “crimes against humanity.” They entail “effectively enslaving hundreds of thousands of citizens, including children, in prison camps and other detention facilities” and involve “beatings and torture by guards, and forced labor in dangerous and sometimes deadly conditions.”

There is a savage madness to this government, and the prospect of its utterly unstable leader getting his hands on usable nuclear weapons is terrifying.

Roenick uses fake story to rip Lynch, other anthem protesters

  Roenick uses fake story to rip Lynch, other anthem protesters Former NHL star Jeremy Roenick does not agree with professional athletes protesting the national anthem, and he is even willing to use fake stories to illustrate his disgust with the trend. On Monday, Roenick took aim at Marshawn Lynch and other athletes who have chosen not to stand during the national anthem. His rant began when he tweeted a screenshot of a fake story about Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison ripping anthem protesters.

The public does not have an opinion of their own arising from debate or critical path analysis of an issue, a statement or a fact. Before that the public opinion over the military action against the Taliban in Swat was divided , but repeated telecast How does mass media influence public policy in the US ?

There is also a kind of tragic consensus among students of international relations that the United States lacks any obvious good options. Of course the United States has the military power to take on a small and economically miserable country, but the costs of such action could be enormous. They would likely fall first on South Korea, a loyal and prosperous U.S. ally. Seoul, its bustling capital, is home to some 10 million people and lies just 35 miles from the demilitarized zone that separates the two Koreas.

Confronting these horrifying realities, the vast majority of Americans, I suspect, would prefer to suspend our acrid politics in dealing with this issue and support President Trump if he pursued a tough — but serious and carefully orchestrated — policy. Trump may be given to hyperbolic (and often fact-free) attacks on those he perceives as enemies, but it’s hard to be hyperbolic where Kim is concerned. He’s about as scary and cruel as they come.

Poll: Majority says Trump's Charlottesville response ‘not strong enough’

Every year, I try to do at least two things with my students at least once . Plato distinguished between opinion or common belief (doxa) and certain knowledge, and that’s still a workable distinction today: unlike “1+1=2” or “there are no square circles,” an opinion has a degree of subjectivity and

And this is where Trump’s temperamental unfitness for the office he occupies is disturbing for reasons that go far beyond party or ideology. There was nothing useful about his telling reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., on Tuesday: “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury . . . like the world has never seen.”

Sen. John McCain (R) is nobody’s idea of a dove, but he knew bombast when he saw it. “I take exception to the president’s comments because you got to be sure that you can do what you say you’re going to do,” McCain told a Phoenix radio station. “The great leaders I’ve seen, they don’t threaten unless they are ready to act and I’m not sure President Trump is ready to act.”

The implication of Trump’s statement was that he’d abandon decades of presidential restraint and be willing to use nuclear weapons. He ratcheted his threat upward on Wednesday (and confused matters at the same time) with a pair of conjoined tweets that read:

My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before. . . .

That survey found that only two of the 37 countries have a more favorable opinion of the United States since Trump took office. And I will tell you, the world is starting to respect the United States of America again . We cannot find any surveys that measure “respect,” and the White House could not

“. . . Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!”

Here, alas, is Trump in a nutshell: It’s all about him (as if he has radically changed our nuclear posture in just over six months in office) and base-pleasing swagger (we’ll always be No. 1!).

But nobody doubts our country’s military power. It’s wisdom the world is looking for.

In the meantime, our nation’s diplomats scramble to control the damage. Thus did Secretary of State Rex Tillerson explain to reporters on Wednesday: “What the president is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un would understand, because he doesn’t seem to understand diplomatic language.”

But do we really want a U.S. president stooping to Kim’s rhetorical level?

Perhaps, following Richard Nixon’s “madman theory” of foreign relations, Trump hopes to use the menace of irrational action to scare Kim into backing down and to scare China into pushing him to do so. But it’s a high-risk game.

And at a moment when Americans would prefer to stand together and support Trump in the face of this grave peril, the president has, once again, done all he could to divide us — and to remind his critics why they find his approach so appalling.

Trump's rift with Flake, other GOP senators expected to take stage at Arizona event .
President Trump’s increasing divide with congressional Republicans is expected to take center stage when he campaigns later this week in Arizona, where outspoken Trump critic and GOP Sen. Jeff Flake is seeking reelection. Flake’s opposition to Trump has increased in recent weeks and months, which has prompted the president to back a primary challenger to the first-term senator.“Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate," Trump tweeted Thursday.
