I'm glad he's learning to look presidential, but...

1) He is continuing to attack and discredit the free press, and with a broad brush, at that. Whether or not his intention is to stifle free speech, he needs to realize that his influence feeds into others' paranoia and fear and could lead to dangerous situations down the line. Not everyone is a rational actor, no matter how much we want to tout the idea of individuals taking responsibility for their own actions.
2) He is strangling the EPA, killing needed regulations and shutting down important environmental work at a critical point in human caused climate change.
3) He is threatening to slash the State Department so that he can afford to further build our military...a dangerous and unnecessary gift to war hawks and the military industrial complex who lobby so heavily for agendas that do not account for the big picture.

That's just three things. When he deals with those in a rational, positive way, THEN I'll agree that he's starting to look Presidential.

Experts keep having to chime in and explain to Trump WHY we do the things we do. Now that's not a problem...that's a good thing. But why isn't he consulting them BEFORE making broad announcements about programs that he can't support or won't benefit the American people?

This is how you decipher truth and evidence from actual "fake news." Who are these 300 "scientists", and what do they know about Climate Change?

We do NOT have a National Security crisis or even situation that calls for this. You want false flags? You're getting them now.

1) Control and discredit the media
2) Ramp up the military (at the expense of other programs)
3) .....

"Win. We have to win. We have to start winning wars again," Trump said. "I have to say, when I was young, in high school and college, everybody used to say that we never lost a war. 'We never lost a war.' You remember."

"And now we never win a war," Trump added. "We never win. And we don't fight to win."

What do YOU think this is leading to?

Fake news, anybody? Fake sources? It's starting to get a little scary in here.

We may yet find some common cause with Conservative America. Nationalism is not really an American Conservative trait, but people that identified as conservatives became an easier target this time around on whom to impose a nationalist agenda.

It would do America's conservatives well to either take back the Republican party or start a new one...one that sane American progressives can have a dialogue with about our common values in our quest for a more reasonable nation rather than one tilting off the edge of the planet.

A cogent, conservative analysis of American politics today. Despite posturing when in his prior position, Boehner has always been a shrewd pragmatist in his thinking.

Jay-Z inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Not Rakim, or Dre, or Ice Cube. Jay-Z. I don't understand our world anymore.

Oops...did I just say, "dear leader?"
