President* Trump

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Trump shares a video on twitter of Trump supporters yelling white power:
Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!
This is the video he retweeted but has now deleted:

I've never seen a golf cart demo before. The anti-PINO's are kinda jerks, too.

Article, including a nasty vid of Long Island reopen protestors abusing a local reporter. PINO also praised those assholes.
Trump Shares Video That Includes Supporter Shouting 'White Power' At Protesters

... The video, apparently first shared Saturday on Twitter by user @davenewworld_2, captures a series of testy exchanges between Trump supporters and protesters in The Villages, an overwhelmingly white community that describes itself as “Florida’s Friendliest Hometown.”
:lol:
... Trump, in a since-deleted retweet that shared the video to his more than 82 million followers, thanked the “great people” of The Villages.

“The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall,” he wrote....

Some Twitter users drew comparisons between Trump’s decision to tweet the video of the man shouting “white power” and his long history of making racist comments and defending white supremacists.

... The president said right-wing protesters who gathered to oppose stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus pandemic were “great people,” though some were carrying Nazi flags and nooses.

During an interview on CNN’s “State Of The Union,” Republican Sen. Tim Scott (SC) said Trump should take down the tweet, calling the entire video “offensive.”

It’s unclear at exactly what time Trump deleted the tweet.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Villa ... mographics

51,442 people x .003 = 154 Blacks.
... As of 2016, persons under 5 years accounted 2% of the population, persons under 18 years accounted for 7.1%, persons 65 years and over accounted for 56.3%, and 50% of the population was female. Median household income between in 2017 was $54,562.

In 2018, the median age for both sexes in The Villages metropolitan statistical area is 67.4, with this being 29 years older than a typical American, and five years older than the median age of residents in the next-oldest county in the United States, which is on the Hawaiian island of Molokai.

The Villages is the home of the largest veteran population anywhere in the United States that doesn't have a military base....

Thanks.

I'll correct myself. Some Plowshares activists have gotten some very stiff sentences, even when the "damage" they did was minimal and largely symbolic.
Four men were charged for trying to tear down a statue of President Andrew Jackson near the White House

... The four men charged are 47-year-old Lee Michael Cantrell from Virginia, 20-year-old Connor Matthew Judd from Washington, DC, 37-year-old Ryan Lane from Maryland, and 37-year-old Graham Lloyd from Maine....
Older, that won't help. Still, a DC jury . . . we'll see. After crashing and burning with the inauguration protestors, the feds may offer really sweet plea bargains. But, PINO and his personal attorney Barr may prevent that.

Maryland and Maine represent!

I think trump's line "corrupt Joe is shot" from his "white power" video is a thinly veiled incitement for somebody in the cult to shoot Biden. I can't recall trump ever using that line before. Maybe I'm just suspicious of this foul raccoon eyed juvenile moron in some irrational way. Maybe not.

How is it that Devin Nunes is walking the streets a free man?
It makes less sense than, why does Beauregard still have his law license after lying to Congress

Will we see Muller pull a Patrick Fitzgerald. Nothing to see here, move along.

yep, as i said 2/1/18, Why does the media pretend that any system will work for the dems or against the repugs?

They raved about Fitzgerald's integrity, but he gave cheney a walk
Same with this bullshit by Muller citing fairness as a reason for failing to do his job.
But there's years and a hundred million dollars to investigate a consensual blow job, because it was a dem.

"The report stated, “A prosecutor’s judgment that crimes were committed, but that no charges will be brought, affords no such adversarial opportunity for public name-clearing before an impartial adjudicator.” In other words, in a gesture of fairness to the President, Mueller withheld a final verdict."

And same with toobin, who I remember* as being one of those in awe of the muller halo.

Trump denies briefing on reported bounties against US troops
AP sources: White House aware of Russian bounties in 2019

Top officials in the White House were aware in early 2019 of classified intelligence indicating Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans, a full year earlier than has been previously reported, according to U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the intelligence.

The assessment was included in at least one of President Donald Trump’s written daily intelligence briefings at the time, according to the officials. Then-national security adviser John Bolton also told colleagues he briefed Trump on the intelligence assessment in March 2019....
PINO has done so many obscene things that it's hard to know what will stick, so I make no predictions. However, this one COULD sink him so far that he can't recover. Plus, it may give some Repug pols the cover they need to do the distancing from him that they've wanted to for a long while.

Trump, like Herbert Hoover, is 'the man who doesn’t care.' Biden can make that stick.

Roosevelt’s campaign was able to paint the president as heartless, aloof from the misery all around him, and unequal to the task of rescuing the nation from the Great Depression. Hoover himself opened the door to this charge. He acted callously, sending the Army to violently disperse Great War veterans camping out in Washington and demanding their bonus payments. He was paranoid, railing about conspiracy theories and pushing the Senate to investigate Wall Street firms for intentionally driving down the stock market in an effort to hurt him politically. And he was willfully blind, refusing to believe his own experts about the scale of the economic devastation.



you can't compare FDR to Biden.

See comment above - same thing applies. It's going to take a lot of hard work to make Biden into a presidential candidate
Doesn't even have to be about Biden. Continuing to make it a referendum on tRump is working well so far.
Like it did in the mid-terms?
Or impeachment?

I forget which referendum on tRump damaged him.

Biden looks physically weak and politically just another slightly liberal dem, who won't do much of anything.
I'll vote for him, but I don't expect anymore of him than Obama gave us with his constant Charlie Brown to their obvious in your face Lucy's football trick or his love for wall street.

Dems netted 41 seats in the mid term, it was a blue wave. Without that there was no impeachment. Yeah that was a successful election.

The Senate was never going to flip in 2018, nor was Cheetohead going to be convicted. No secret.

Sorry you don't like Biden, I'm not the biggest fan of the current incarnation either but I pretty much will support anyone and anyway to remove the orange cancer as most national elections are choosing the lesser evil.
