Hey, Bray! I did not get your essay. Post directly to the thread when/if you can!
Morning AB, All. As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably and keeping the peace with gentle thread policing. Thank you Bray for weekly written wisdom, Thank all yon contributors for excellent commentary to flesh it all out.
Below are the words from my daily political diary. It is quite long so scroll on by if not interested. But do stay around and add your commentary and point of view to the thread.
The honest, decent and trustworthy FBI, then led by the very honest, decent and trustworthy Comey, McCabe and other fired honest, decent and trustworthy FBI employees began to dig in deep to figure out how to throw out this president recently elected by the silly fools across the fruited plains that could not compare to the very honest, decent and trustworthy FBI leaders.
The NY Times tells us nothing new except to reinforce our belief that our national police force would never, NOT EVER I TELL YOU, go after a lawfully elected president just because they didn’t like him.
They might do it to protect, say, a former president, or even Trump’s then presidential opponent.
But they are too honest, decent and trustworthy to do such a thing.
President Trump referred to him, in a tweet that was obviously a mistake, as Jeff Bozo.
>>>>>he made in an interview last week with the New York Times in which he was quoted questioning why the terms “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” have become offensive.>>>>
I think that is the strangest group of thoughts in the world. Why have those terms become offensive he asks?
Suppose we began to use the terms “Hispanic Supremacist” or “Muslim Supremacist” or “Black Supremacist”?
Giving a group the mantle of supremacy is stupid.
I don’t know this Steve King well and he appears to say really silly stuff. And the Republicans are wailing and moaning and sobbing in their rush to punish the guy.
I suppose when asked the Republicans should proclaim bad mannered words were uttered. But Lindsay Graham, Jason Chaiffitz and Minority leader McCarthy are ready to hang the man by his tongue in a public forum.
When did this country get so crazy about the language?
So far, I am not impressed.
First, the guy publicly pledges his love and loyalty of that Mueller liar and cheat.
I’m sorry but anybody who thinks a person who picks all of one party to investigate the other party as being a fair and upstanding guy .why he is a cheat too.
Now I know Barr had to say nice things about people serving in the administration. But the guy was positively sickening about it.
He also declared that liar and cheat James Comey was a fine upstanding guy who did a great job as leader of the FBI.
Again, right there, I do not trust this guy’s judgment.
Anybody who thought Comey did a great job as leader of the FBI needs to go back to school.
Again, I don’t suppose he could have said that he thought Comey was a loser-burger who’s been fired, who wrote lying books about it, who let a very guilty Hillary Clinton off on selling America to Russia.
Seems he didn’t have to come off as a one man cheering party.
How is this guy any better than Jeff Sessions?
Help me out here.
There’s some kerfuffle about this year’s State of the Union Address, usually delivered by the sitting President in the House of Representatives, with all of congress and the Justices of the Supreme court attending.
It would turn out that Nancy Pelosi, lovely woman she is and my childhood friend, sent President Trump a letter asking that because of the shutdown of government and problems with scheduling the Secret Service that the SOTU be postponed.
Steny Hoyer, an idiot if there ever was one and from my home state of Merryland, came out and announced that Pelosi called off the SOTU.
They just don’t want Trump to be seen as America’s President, standing in front of congress and looking well like the leader of America.
So they make a big deal about not having an SOTU.
Won’t happen people. Americans will not stand for a silly and botoxed House Leader dictating when the President delivers the message as commanded by our constitution.
No the constitution does not demand how often these “occasional” reports to the American people by the President should happen, or even when and where.
But tradition is that the SOTU is normally delivered January of every year, in congress, by the President.
The opposing party is given a chance to rebut but the Democrats, they are going to kick this President out no matter what it takes.
Won’t happen. Trump will give the SOTU. They won’t stop, or delay, him.
What is it with these elite elected that if they get sick and can’t work they can, boom, just call in from home? Remember the guy from West Virginia, it was “Weekend at Bernies” with this guy because, well the Dems needed him so they propped him up in the chair and pointed his finger for him come time to vote.
The Dems are about to have a cow that Ginsberg, almost 90 now as I understand, and suffering from cancer, might be another Supreme Court replacement for Trump.
It will be difficult for them to find a man somewhere that Ginsberg’s proposed replacement (now rumored to be a female) might have molested during a party during high school.
Where the hell are the Republicans? Why aren’t they clamoring for Ginsberg’s health status and replacement date?
Or should we make the entire Supreme Court contenders for “Weekend at Bernies” and set them up behind the podium and learn some believable Democratic ventriloquism?
In an anecdote to prove that there are really good people in the world, we learn that the award offered for the return of Jayme Closs-$50,000, was turned down by her “rescuer” and given back to Jayme. “She essentially rescued herself,” the lady walking her dog approached by an escaped Jayme said. “She should get the money.
Spell check is a well intentioned action taken by the computer to anticipate what we are trying to type.
President Trump sent a tweet about his fast food fun with over a thousand “hamberders” for Clemson University victors.
I am quite sure this was a mistake, NOT a misspelling. And probably the computer tried to correct but Trump either spoke the tweet as such or he continued to type while the computer desperately tried to fix the mistake.
It’s happened to all of us. There are plenty of FreeRepublic/Facebook/Reddit posts that will follow a lengthy one that had one word frightfully misspelled. The user, upon seeing “car” spelled as “carb” will often put up a post with a few words pointing out that he or she meant “car”.
Trump is the President. He’s busy. More likely he didn’t see the error until it went out. And as we have to do from time to time, I am to understand that a correction was sent out immediately.
We get it.
But some liberal silly shit guested on Laura Ingraham’s Fox show the same night and first thing she pointed out that our President was so stupid he couldn’t spell hamburger.
That’s the problem with liberals they are mean, nasty and have no sense of humor.
What miserable lives they must lead.
Does anybody remember the COVEFEE error? Word became a part of the English language.
So it seems, in an action that has shocked many, that President Trump cancelled the plane scheduled to deliver Speaker Palosi to Afghanistan and Brussels. Trump said with the gubmiint shut down it’s not safe to send out planes, pilots and security.
If Pelosi thought that it wasn’t safe for the President to deliver his State of the Union speech in the People’s House, why wouldn’t Trump respond with the same action?
The Dems are not going to win this.
All their silly actions serve one purpose and thank me now for giving it to you.
TO PROTECT PRESIDENT OBAMA, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER.
Besides Jimmy Carter, another awful President.
Seems Buzzfeed released information that Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, declared that he was going to testify before congress, ON THE INSTRUCTIONS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP, with a lie, stating that Trump instructed to do so.
The fine and wonderful FBI crew of Mueller, a great man filled with honesty and integrity we should drop to our knees for having him protect our country, released a notice that this story by Buzzfeed was “not accurate”.
They lie and they lie more and they keep lying.
The media, I speak of.
Thank God the wonderful, sweet, honest FBI team of Mueller releases the truth.
Honest, the Mueller team, filled with former huge contributors to the Democratic coffers.
But Mueller is entirely too honest to be so partisan, no?
..it’s just the weirdest thing.
To begin, let me explain the set-up.
I have an I-phone, and like everyone with a cell phone I use it for all my telephonic correspondence.
BUT .I also have a phone with Comcast, one of those deals where you get Wi-Fi, cable, some HBO, a phone and free coffee at Starbucks on Wednesdays.
I never use that cable phone in that it’s like the phones of yesteryear, mostly glued to its spot and for sure I can’t take it in the car with me and such.
But in case my Iphone should be out, I hooked up another phone to that Comcast phone. It does not, of course, have the same number as my Iphone. It does ring, but not too often, mostly telemarketers that probably got the number from Comcast. No one of any import has EVER called me on that phone.
So I’ve been writing these political columsn .heh, in case no one ever noticed. I do not, of course, say anything good about the FBI because they are the worst, most dishonest federal police force on the planet, the get fired and write books about it I dunno, maybe the Venezuelan police are worse.
So the call comes in. Over and over and over from the same number, this past Friday fifteen times before I disconnected.
I do have voice mail on this phone but again, mostly it’s a voice telling me to get warranty on my car soon and call this number.
I can check online at my Comcast site to see the calls and/or listen to the voicemail.
All of these repetitive calls were from Apple. Get this, the phone message says, in effect “Someone has been trying to access your Apple Icloud. To get more information about this, contact ‘FBI.gov/investigative”.
First, I never use that phone. Apple does not have that phone number as my contact.
Second, why contact the FBI? Is it because I’ve been writing nasty things about the FBI. Nasty, but all true.
On and on that second phone rang all day yesterday until I unhooked it from the modem receptacle for that purpose. Then I removed the text from showing up on my TV screen, something that could be handy but yesterday these Apple people called that number around 20 times.
There is nothing wrong with my Apple account.
Somebody’s playing games with me.
The FBI ..sweet, gentle, honest people, so wonderful that if you fire them they immediately write a book about it.
No .I don’t think it’s the FBI. But I do think somebody’s reading my political columns and trying to make me scared.
We all know how honest, decent and loving our FBI is now don’t we?
Your colorful descriptions of the mostly anti-Trump guests and panelists made reading the lists quite entertaining. Thank you.
Best President ever!
I have voice mails on my cell that are literally 10 years old, tying up my cyber space allowance. I do not want it and I do not use it.
I made my cell phone voice mail message as slow and long as possible, essentially stating that I might read your text if you want to reach me. It is a tortuously long message and I had a bit of fun making it, years ago.
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.James 1:2-3 KJV
What is it like to have the media lapping at your feet and every word you say no matter how ignorant is treated like Moses coming down from the mountain. It obviously gives the Dems a feeling of invincibility since in their world every problem is solved by gummit and everybody in their world is a fellow Marxist. You are never challenged and always given godlike status by their adoring Press Corpses.
All a Dem has to do is say the most brain-dead phrase and their puppets in the press will repeat it dutifully as if it is the Ten Commandments. Statements like Walls Dont Work will be chanted over and over and over until something so absurd becomes the truth to enough of their followers until they believe it.
The media has become the weaponized deliverer of instructions to promote the world they want to exist and whoever stands in their way will be destroyed. We are watching it in full display with the war against President Trump and his followers. There is no attempt at gathering the truth or reporting in the slightest objective matter, their job is to stop him and his administration from doing his job.
How can any American let alone someone whose job is reporting for the country be against putting the country first and its citizens be given a priority over every other country? This should be the basic building block of a gummit yet this is a crime according the press and its masters in the Democrat Party. What could possibly be wrong with a President focused on increasing the number of jobs and making lives better for the average person yet we are supposed to feel guilty for wanting America to do well.
This is all about making America pay for its sins of the past. Never mind all the good America has done around the world through giving and charity, America is evil to these people. They have built their own cult which says everything America does is a sin and none of those sins are forgivable. They have no problem with countries that have mass murdered their citizens or enslaved them; America is the problem and needs to be punished.
In their cult societal sins are far worse than personal sins. There are very few personal sins in the cult and most of them are built around not thinking the way they believe and the greatest sin is being a Christian. In their list of sins intolerance is the great unforgivable sin which conveniently Christians are the least tolerant people on the planet. The Christians stands against homosexuality, abortion, drugs, alcohol, assisted suicide, sex change and a variety of the lefts lifestyle agenda makes them the greatest sinners of all. They have built a cult which says being a Christian is a sin which their followers believe completely.
The first thing every communist dictator outlaws is Christianity and we are watching this happen today. It is not being done by an official Gestapo; it is being done through virtual and personal harassment within the cult. All you have to do is mention God or Jesus and you will see their eyes pop out and begin their assault as if it were a murderer caught in the act.
If Hilary would have been elected this would have been progressed much further as anyone saying homosexuality is a sin or any of the perversions we are witnessing today would be accused of a hate speech. This would likely be outlawed or punished in some fashion even though we are seeing people losing their jobs and livelihoods over this sin. They have and are making Christianity and historic morality a sin which will not be tolerated.
It is obvious why they have to outlaw God. Most of their agenda goes against God and is derived from a Satanic cult.
It is purely earth worship as we have seen over the last sixty years and many would say the six thousand years, which goes completely against God and the Ten Commandments. Theirs is a death worship built around abortion and homosexuality as well as all the derivatives such as pedophilia and sex change. Once they have the population broken down then they can take away their freedoms and institute absolute control in the guise of making a better America in the Communist mold.
The Democrat Party is the Party of tyranny and slavery. It is against freedom for all in every sense of the word. They are closing down through their cult and enforcers in the media any type of free speech, freedom of thought and freedom of religion. You will adhere to their beliefs and definitions of sins or you will be excommunicated which in many instances means losing your job or income. Their war on Christianity is going to be vicious since once they get rid of Christians then they have an open highway for the rest of their agenda.
America was and is still a Christian nation which stands in the way of the Communist Utopia. This is why the Democrat Party is virtually outlawing Christians from the public square. Their cult has made Christians sinners to be excommunicated from society and is now second class citizens whose thoughts and morals are to be shunned. The Christian church needs to stand against this muzzling of their faith before it becomes more than a sin to be one.
America was built on a Christian foundation which is why the Democrat cult needs to bring it down. This is not a battle against tolerance vs intolerance this is a spiritual battle to take down the Christian foundation. This is not about whether the earth is in danger of becoming too warm it is about enslaving people into a lifestyle which takes away as much freedom as possible starting with the car. This is about making believers in God sinners who cannot be allowed in society for fear they would not follow the decrees and laws of their new masters. This is about taking out the biggest roadblock in the way of complete Marxism which is the Christians of America and why the Christians must fight back, to keep America free for all thought, speech and religion.
Pray for America
Not the FBI, but rather Scammers.
Since the State Of The Union speech won’t be happening in the usual forum, where should it be? Aternatives:
The Alamo would provide the most direct reference, but would involve travel for the audience.
Regardless of where, serve fast food for a snack. And one foo-foo salad at an empty chair reserved for Nancy Pelosi.
I for one echo and enjoy the edits on the guest lists...more, please!
The Alamo would provide the most direct reference, but would involve travel for the audience.
Oh my, that is a great idea!!!
Mike Wallace Jr is allowing two Trump supporters on his NeverTrump roundtable?
Here’s a video somebody made after they got the same message about their iCloud. He called Apple directly.
Thanks for the thread bud. It’s interesting to see how Trumps awesome week will be covered by the drivebys now that they have put all their eggs in a rotten basket once again.
the comparisons of Trumps supposed misdeeds vs. those of hill/bama are truly revealing as well. Our side forgets to do stuff like that from time to time.
Big time cold front headed our way lots of rain wind high seas ahead for a few days,time to turn the a/c off and the heater on.
Looks like Baar will say most anything to appease the hard left and get his 60 to be appointed AG.What's behind all this to begin with?
Baar has history with 41.This alone would normally take him way away from any thought of selection by Trump.So knowing his history of working together with 41 in so many nefarious deeds its difficult to list them all one might suspect that: 1. Trump needs Baars talents for a specific job and 2. Trump already has the goods on Baar and has compromised him to the point where he will become little more than a tool.
Bearing the above in mind it's up to us to figure out what and why potus picked someone who was so close to the leader of the globalist movement.
I have my guesses but nothing hard to back them up.
