    There are, you just don't want to accept them

    Just like you don't want to accept the fact that 7.23 million people double voted for Trump.

    ...and is overpriced, over hyped trash.

    I've taken overseas clients there a few times. They love it. I find it entertaining myself. Don't get the food though, better to go eat somewhere else before/after.

    are you still actually not aware that CNN is basically fake news?

    There is no denying that CNN is biased news. But biased does not equate to fake.

    Fake news is news that is based on untruths and purposefully written to deceive the reader/watcher. It is not news that you just don't like because it doesn't fit your bias.

    I cannot understand how some of the people with above average intelligence blindly defend and attempt to make excuses for the things the trumpy administration has been doing.

    There are a few reasons for it.

    1) Many of them are just disenfranchised with society. They are frustrated with working hand-to-mouth. They are frustrated with increases in crime reports, and increases in reports of criminals getting lenient sentences. They are frustrated with not being able to buy everything the media is selling them. Trump ran on a campaign of disrupting the status quo, and this was appealing to them.

    2) Some of them are anarchists. They want the status quo destroyed, because they want to see everyone scrambling.

    3) Some of them a just trolls. They don't have an agenda other than just annoying people (think Milo Yiannopolis).

    4) Some of them are racists. Trump ran on a campaign of division, and this appeals to them.

    For these people, the issues that have been happening with the white house are acceptable, because they don't disrupt the reasons they have followed Trump in the first place.

    For most of the groups I listed, the only thing that will make them stop liking Trump is if they start to hurt financially to the point that their financial pain overtakes the reasons they support Trump. The group most likely to start being anti-Trump is the first group - the disenfranchised. If Trump doesn't make their life better, they will be like the people who supported Obama and became frustrated when he didn't bring the change they had hoped for. The other three groups though will be much less likely to turn on Trump, as it would take a significant amount of financial hardship, that they attribute to government policies, to overrides their anarchist tendencies, their trollism, and their racism.

    So the first group are the ones we need to work with/on.

    Great to see the White House show the respect that fake news (and in one case the "very fact news") organizations deserve.

    And yet, none of you can show any stories that were fake news.

    Someone is saying 'That was X', then showing Y as a comparison.

    Brexit and Donald Trump had zero chance of success.

    Someone doesn't know what 'fake news' means.

    There is no way in especially in my home state that the libs would do anything like that. No way. Put two of THE most liberal news outlets out there, not even close to anything conservative and they all know it. But like I said, if I have to choose between believing anyone on here on my brother who's been in the hardest and heaviest crime areas, I'll take his word every time.

    And yet, there are no facts. Nothing.

    Sorry, I'm from California, I know it and I've seen it and there is zero reason I would lie about it.

    You claimed this before. How were you able to identify that the person who was voting was an illegal alien, and how were the people at the voting station unable to recognize this illegality like you did?

    Sorry, but your story is so full of holes swiss cheese could take a lesson.

    While I agree with you that it is probably true that the 'facts' you are talking about don't exist, just because no one has shown facts does not necessarily mean they do not exist.

    Would you say the same of humans with wings? Fire-breathing dragons? Witches? Wizards?

    Sure, it's not impossible that they could exist. But the fact that there has never been anything indicating their existence to be true, pretty much entirely points to someone having made them up.

    Just like the illegal voters.

    you never read facts even if someone puts them forth you like to put forth what you want to believe and that's fine.

    I'm not married to an opinion. I'm married to facts. If someone can show facts that the illegal voting happened, I'll be as critical of illegal voting as anyone.

    But no one has every shown any facts, because they don't exist.

    A tiny reminder first, Hillary and Obama are proven warmongers.

    Obama is a proven non-warmonger. He didn't start any wars, he only finished them.

    But either way, neither is in government anymore. So let's not deflect from the issue at hand by deflecting to them.

    But I thought you guys on the left hate war and war mongers. If so, You should be a nationalist and Trump should be your man.

    Please explain you 'logic' behind this.

    I've got one on staff. He's been invaluable. I've learned so much about hacking that I had no idea about through him. Since hiring him, I've not only changed our company systems, but also my own personal internet usage habits.

    It's interesting how hair is such a strong topic among both sexes. When a woman shaves her head, it's controversial. Some men have no confidence when they go bald, and others gain confidence through their hair.

    What is it about hair that we are so hung up on?

    Hmmmm...trying to downsize from the last 8 years. it'll take some time.

    He's upsizing on travel costs:

    Barely a month into the Trump presidency, the unusually elaborate lifestyle of America’s new first family is straining the Secret Service and security officials, stirring financial and logistical concerns in several local communities, and costing far beyond what has been typical for past presidents — a price tag that, based on past assessments of presidential travel and security costs, could balloon into the hundreds of millions of dollars over the course of a four-year term.

    Link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/trump-familys-elaborate-lifestyle-a-logistical-nightmare--at-taxpayer-expense/2017/02/16/763cce8e-f2ce-11e6-a9b0-ecee7ce475fc_story.html?postshare=3851487333451275&tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.d6a2de60b62d

    So many complaints from the right about Obama spending too much money, then not a peep when Trump is spending it like it's going out of style.

    Hypocrisy at it's worst.

    I'd buy a penthouse in a very high building. Hard to even tell you're in the city when you get up high enough in Tokyo, since you can't hear most of the sounds of the city.

    So where should they go.

    Guatemala.

    Guatemala is next door, they have similar cultures, speak the same language, easy for them to assimilate.

    Mexico has zero obligation to accept nationals from another country.

    Again, if they are Mexican citizens and the Mexican government refuses to take back their own citizens

    We aren't talking about Mexicans, we're talking about Guatemalans (or other non-Mexicans).

    If Mexico refuses to take non-Mexican citizens that's not their problem, it's America's.

    “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

    Interesting quote. I think this is a major problem for Team Trump. They've invested so much into personally backing him, more as an evangelical than a leader, that they now can't dump him without looking foolish for all the things they have said about him.

    On that note, I think we need to make a concerted effort on the other side to not do a big 'told ya so' when some people are brave enough to admit he's not what they had hoped him to be.

    Actually, Asian fighters don't really fare well and are definitely not an emerging force in the UFC.

    Some asian fighters have done well in the UFC, notably Chan Sung-Jung (mentioned in the article) and the Korean Zombie, who just returned after doing his mandatory military service.

    The Japanese fighters for the most part haven't done that great, though I do remember one challenging for the featherweight belt a couple of years back.

    Then if that is the case, we should make a camp help them take care of them, but essentially they will be Stateless and have eternal refugee status.

    No country other than your own can stop you from doing that inside American borders.
