Opps! Looks like I've trodden on some toes, but that was never my intention.

I've posted often on what I see as US government deficiencies, and you must agree that they exist.

But, make no mistake, I hold the American people in high regard, and particularly the military.

Nothing that I've written about my opinions on Trump and the US government in general should reflect on the population.

One can understand the difference between living in the USA vs watching the Hate Trump media's representation of our country. 
Impeachment is never going to happen the democrats don't know what words- 'mean' it's like talking to toddlers. The country will elect Trump again and AU can continue to wonder why, while AU corporate types can't buy US mutual funds fast enough.

I didn't know that the Academy had any integrity.  Does this mean that they have gotten rid of the casting couch?

I think Polanski should come to the US so he can defend his "good name".  Although kicking him out now, seems to be too little, too late.

  1. Julian Assange is an Australian citizen. He was "evicted" from the embassy after having overstayed his welcome, and following complaints from staff. Once evicted onto a British public Street, he became fair game for the English police who were in possession of a Warrant for his Arrest. I don't have much doubt that he will be extradited to the US where he'll face trial, and if convicted (which I think he will be) a lengthy prison term.
  2. The Academy has lost a lot of credibility over the years, and, IMHO, is now seen as an elitist club.
  3. There are two schools of thought on Polanski and his good name. His flight from US justice seems to me to be an admission of guilt, and he is in fact guilty of sexual acts with minors. Perhaps it would be better to refuse him re-entry to the US, rather than allow him to return and then kick his ass out.
  4.  I don't see the connection between Congress, Trump and the above post. None of it can be placed at Trump's feet.


You started talking about rendition, all roads lead to wikileaks and Hollywood did try to get Polanski back last year but he turned them down. Polanski's wife is so woke, she couldn't have it.

1. According to recent media reports, Donald Trump has hinted that he may give evidence at his Impeachmennt Hearing. Given his outstanding record of mishandling the truth, one would think it likely that if he did, he'd end up being charged with perjury.

2. Question: Throughout his Presidency, Trump has made some terrible accusations against various people, including now ex-members of his own administration. Many of the comments attributed to him are downright libelous. Why has no-one sued him for Defamation or Libel?

I don't think that anybody believes he would actually testify before congress.  He said he might testify for the Mueller investigation, did that happen?

One, American libel laws are much more strict than British libel laws, all those aristocrats like to sue people who "defame their character" at the drop of a hat.  Two, don't you think the White House has enough lawyers to squash any normal suits that come up, if the president has prosecutorial immunity, well.... <fill in the blank>.  Three, how can you believe that he's lying about someone's reputation, when you know you cannot believe what he says.  Lying consists of willful telling of a falsehood with the expectation that it will be believed.  So, I am not sure he is lying because A) I am not sure he knows it is a falsehood (or cares),  B) I wonder why anyone would believe him (as making a factual, accurate statement).  Four, I kind of feel that anyone that has anything to do with him should know better, and when he sooner or later bites them, they sort of get what they deserve.
