Not surprisingly, a lot of the RFD Alt-Right brigade were backing him up in various thread arguments last night...
Reason: let's tone it down

And some of them are literal Nazi scum, like the one that was just banned from here. These people fail at life.

Picture a complete absence of critical thought coupled with zealot-like devotion. I'm talking people who say things like "DON'T QUESTION THE PRESIDENT. HE IS GOD'S CHOSEN LEADER. HALLELUJAH. PRAISE JESUS" and a post like that will get 5,000 likes.
At first I tried to start discussions about things like
- Why checks and balances against world leaders are a good thing
- Why they should be loyal to their values and not some guy in charge
- Why refusing a salary is an insult to people you are being compensated to serve
- What it means to be a public servant, and how the President's policies fail to serve the people
.. and in response they bring up Hillary Clinton, criticized my profile picture and tried to friend me so they could dox me IRL. So I stopped trying to engage them.

To be fair, I'm not sure the spy ship is any closer to the US as previous operations would be. They are certainly further north but I'm not sure whether they're any closer to US waters than previously.

You are something else Arm2000.Coal companies were walking away from unprofitable mines and the water contamination was killing the water supplies.Obama made sure there was a reserve fund to clean up closed mines which of course mine CEO's didn't want.First coal is a dying energy source,even with Trump opening tearing down regulations there is too much coal and the price for it is very low.You cannot create a market if there is no demand.

The video you linked is a good reason to see why repealing the Obama law is a good idea. If mining companies go bankrupt they leave a big mess behind. And that law was putting even more burden on mining business, already in trouble as you noticed.

One subject on which Trump and McMaster could soon differ is Russia. McMaster shares the consensus view among the U.S. national security establishment that Russia is a threat and an antagonist to the United States, while McMaster's predecessor appeared to view it more as a potential geopolitical partner.

This means the republicans are starting to test the waters to see if their viewers bite.

The U.S. House of Representatives intelligence committee will investigate allegations of collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia, the top Democrat on the panel said on Wednesday.
“We have reached a written agreement, the minority and the majority in the House intelligence committee, that we will investigate allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign,” Democratic Representative Adam Schiff said on MSNBC.

Trump attorney general Jeff Sessions met Russian ambassador
Attorney General Jeff Sessions met Russia's ambassador twice during Donald Trump's presidential campaign last year, the US government has confirmed.
Mr Sessions, a senator at the time, did not disclose the contacts at his January confirmation hearing.
But he stressed on Wednesday he had "never met any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign".
Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi accused Mr Sessions of "lying under oath" and demanded he resign.
Other Democrats called on him to step aside from an investigation by the FBI - which he oversees as attorney general - into the alleged Russian interference.
The news broke just after a congressional committee agreed an investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the election.
