Thank the Lord we have a group of morons in the White House who are simply too incompetent to effectively execute a proper nefarious conspiracy.

Had they been smart people we would all be learning Arabic right now. Instead, it's going to take them their full 8 years to destroy the country.

A Russian who grew up in the Soviet Union told me, “Is ridiculous to think people in government conspire. The moment a third person knows they call Phillip Morris agency to sell book and movie rights. American’s can’t do anything in secret!”

Maybe someone told him about papa Bergdahl's Tweet which he also later deleted:

I'm still waiting for the "Death to America!" one.

And yet I responded just yesterday to someone on this site who thinks the Sandy Hook massacre never actually happened. He/she thinks that an entire town, an entire school system, first responders from six to eight separate communities, the state police and three hospitals all have conspired to create a false narrative. Amazing.

Speaking of Father Bob — he said something else interesting I think at Rose Garden in message to son. Something like “Trust the people you are now with” and then either “I have handpicked them” OR “They have been handpicked.” Just thought interesting.

I back away from those people. Now, let’s talk about all the uniformed folks around the Clintons who died cleaning their guns...

Ramblings of a seasoned politician. They can say things like this without even thinking.

I believe they have a book or something of phrases that fit into any situation that they can spout off without thinking about it.

Even if it was for a legit soldier, its so generic... just popped right out of his mouth(keyboard) effortlessly. It was probably even typed by an intern. === “Will you type something about that soldier guy on twitter for me dear?”

The whitehouse attack dogs are going on full attack mode with this one. The media will be put on notice as well. It takes a few days ti come down the chain of command, what with all the other news the president has to discover by hearing about it in the news first.

I am still waiting for people like you to provide one shred of evidence (other than news reports that changed by the moment) that Sandy Hook actually occurred as stated. Just one thing is all I ask......

Give me one shred of evidence that Dwight Eisenhower ever served as president. If you expect me to accept press releases, history books or stories in the news, that’s what I’ll send you regarding Sandy Hook. If you want me to accept the words of others, that’s what I’ll send you.

Really, just growup.

What's so secretive about what they're doing? It's been plain for several years what they meant by Change and Hope! It's all out there...hidden in plain sight...for anyone with eyes or ears to comprehend.

Crazy!

Of course....I've been called "out there" too!! Ha!!!

Doctor friend of mine...thought I was nuts back in the Clinton Days....Then one day he came up to me..and said..."I thought you were whacked, nutty...but I see now you were right"...Ha!!!

” What’s so secretive about what they’re doing? “

This was written in reference to a Freeper who responded to somebody who thought Sandy Hook never happened, that everybody was lying about it in a huge conspiracy. Yes, the administration has been quite open in trying to fundamentally change America into a communist worker’s paradise.

General, you've sorta lost me. I thought this thread was about Sgt. Birddogh. What does a Sandy Hook comment have to do with what I posted? Please, General?

The poster asked a legitimate question which you threw back mockingly without answering. Is this the new FReeper method of communication for you or is it the old one?

I was hoping to point out how absurd it is to ask me to prove something happened when there is clear documentary evidence that it did happen. If this person can prove Ike served as president then I will respond with the same sort of proof regarding Sandy Hook. My guess is that if I supplied news articles, police reports, hospital records etc, I’d be told they weren’t proof and yet we unquestioningly accept such documents to prove Eisenhower was president.

Maybe not, but politicians can still lie about having made certain statements. They can claim they were manufactured. It an old technique called “gaslighting.” Keep lying about something even if caught in the lie. Your diehard supporters either won’t care or will believe you, the indifferent certainly won’t even be aware of the situation, and your enemies will just look vindictive.

"Why do you say this?"

Uhhh, because it's true? Or does that not count?

She may be the better candidate, but that does not absolve her from criticism.

Why the TEA movement slam? Well, noting something is not the same as slamming it. Virtually EVERY report about her mentions her as a TP favorite, should FReepers not also mention it?

When your favorite politician acts as most politicians do, should you pretend it didn't happen?
