Trump political ? blunders

https://townhall.com/columnists/anncoulter/2021/01/06/the-election-is-over-heres-the-truth-about-trump-n2582677

"The usual problem with Trump is that he’s all talk, no action."

  - You lost me there, Ann. Wouldn't it be exactly the other way around? Two people are living comfortably in Palm Beach Florida, both upset about where the country is headed.  One jumps in, changes the electoral map of the country, gets elected, builds a wall, brings middle east peace, stands up to China, stands up to Germany, brings about the lowest black unemployment rate in history, raises national wealth more in a year than his predecessors did in the previous two decades.  The other sits home and complains.  All talk. No action.  She has all the negative qualities of Trump and none of the positive ones.

The US Congress; Democrat Article of Impeachment
« Reply #852 on: January 13, 2021, 07:56:28 AM »
Link follows.  Basically the high crime is he said: "we won this election, and we won it by a landslide’’.

Even more inciting was the hundred thousand times the media complex said, "baseless allegations", while acting in lockstep to block dissemination of any information relevant to the basis of the allegations, and the courts refusal to give standing to any American official, citizen or state to present the alleged evidence.

a preponderance of the evidence
« Reply #853 on: January 13, 2021, 08:40:05 AM »
obviously shows the  election was stolen and rigged

in my mind it is beyond reasonable doubt

but for people who are naive as to the extent of fraud that could be committed and covered by so many
it is beyond their doubt I guess

people who are too trusting
believe "authorities" "establishment " types "

I don't know anything about the Republican governor of Vermont, but it's a pretty sure bet he or she is Republican in name only or wouldn't be Governor of Vermont. Expect a far left Dem to replace Leahy if that happened. Looks like Leahy will be okay for now.

Ah yes, the Mittens Romney "I will not dignify this assault on my person by stooping to their level and fighting back." strategy.

How's that working out for us?


You think the Sunni states working with Israel don't still hate the Israelis? You think this Israelis don't know that?

There is more, but this is what I could lay my hands on in this moment.

So, mentioning the Rothschilds makes one an anti-semite ?


BTW, I saw Jewish Space Laser open for Nine Inch Nails at Red Rocks in '91...

As I mentioned, there is more in a similar vein-- I just don't have the citations handy.

And yes, mentioning the Rothchilds IS a good indicator in my experience as a Jew.

Howabout Soros? Can we mention Soros, or is that anti-semitic as well? Media Matters, funded by Soros and the source for the story you posted likes to push that as well.

As far as believing "conspiracy theories including QAnon, which centers on former President Donald Trump making moves against a Satan-worshipping, cannibalistic, child sex trafficking ring filled with Democratic politicians and prominent liberals"

Jewish Space Laser:

FWIW I don't hate Soros , Bloomberg, Zuckerberg and the Wall St and  Democrat lawyer mob because they are Jews
but because they make me disappointed in my fellow Jews and sometimes ashamed of being  Jewish.

Justified. - someone else can psychoanalyze me but that is how I feel.

It's the republican wing of the DC Uniparty. As long as they get invited to the right cocktail parties they are happy to pontificate about their "values".

C'mon GM, you've seen me after Soros plenty and Glenn Beck, #1 enemy of Soros has his own thread on this forum.

"FWIW I don't hate Soros , Bloomberg, Zuckerberg and the Wall St and  Democrat lawyer mob because they are Jews but because they make me disappointed in my fellow Jews and sometimes ashamed of being  Jewish."

OTOH going after "the Rothchilds" reeks of the hoary worst of the old hatred.

See how the tactic works? Now, if Rep. Greene were tossing around slurs or saying "6 million wasn't enough", that's different.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Going after them without even a hint of any other reason to even bring them up is what makes it at least look anti-semitic.

https://www.businessinsider.com/marjorie-taylor-greene-expressed-support-for-assassinating-democrats-cnn-2021-1
In 2018, Greene wrote on Facebook that "the stage is being set" to hang Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
In 2019, she liked a Facebook comment suggesting Nancy Pelosi get a "bullet to the head." 

The source here is lousy.  Odds are there was something more to both of these.  The first one is arguably just words.  We don't hang people anymore even though Democrats are currently accusing Trump of treason, implying he should be hanged  The second one is stupid.  The words are visual and violent.  Neither is worse than what the opposition does often.  Both I assume were from before she was a candidate.  None of that makes it okay.  We operate in a double standard world.  I doubt she advocates taking power via assassination, and then runs for office.  Still, you can't 'like' over-the-top rhetoric and be a leader or hold public office - as a Republican.

I don't want N.P. to get a blank to her blank; I want her voted out - democratically, peacefully and patriotically - and live a long, happy and healthy life in retirement with all her ill-gotten riches.

Republican in name only:  The Republican label means something important to me.  Crafty's definition of American Creed sums it up, something about free markets, free minds and free people.  When politicians lips move and they aren't 100% focused on advancing exactly those things, they are hurting the cause.

The double standard is a feature, not a bug. A fact as clear as a stolen election.
A Republican could not pal around with Louis Farrakhan.

Imagine if the sides were reversed on abortion.  If Republicans wanted to build baby killing factories in black neighborhoods, and wanted taxpayer support to thin the herd of the unwanted unborn five times more likely to be black than white.  Abortion would be 100 or 1000 times more cruel than slavery and we would be destroyed.

Keith Ellison represented Louis Farrakhan unapologetically for a decade before running for office.  He became national party vice chair with all this in his background, and was elected congressman of Minneapolis and Attorney General of Minnesota where he still serves.  Ilhan 'it's the Benjamins baby' [Jewish lobby slur] Omar, not her real family name, was elected to replace him in Congress.  If you watch "Blackhawk Down" with her, she is pulling for the other side.  She's with the terrorists dragging dead Americans through the street for the imperialist crime of trying to bring humanitarian relief to her native Somalia.  She faced a primary and general election challenge this year and won both with wide margins.  Scott Johnson of Powerline called both of them out on all this a hundred times as the Minneapolis StarTribune yawned and published hate Trump cartoons daily.  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/weekly-standard/louis-farrakhans-br-first-congressman

That doesn't mean Republicans can do it.  Just the opposite.  One mis-speak, retweet one bad tweet and you're out.

Hollering unfair works only one way.

Agreed.  I don't care either.  Republicans are 'forced' to respond and no one even knows exactly what the tweets were or what was meant by them.  There is a presumption, that if she said it, we all think it, when she probably didn't even say it and certainly didn't mean it.

Who said, "If they bring a knife, we bring a gun."

Endorsed twice by the NYT, Wash Post etc. and elected twice AFTER saying that.

Another crazy idea would be for (author) Kevin Williamson and all of National Review to join the GOP before they invite others in.

US Congress; McConnell's Speech
« Reply #884 on: February 16, 2021, 06:30:35 AM »
Note that acquittal was done before Mitch scathed.  He had voted to acquit but needed to tell us how guilty Trump was.

Unmentioned by almost all is Mitch's wife, who Mitch used his clout to get Trump to hire, served 4 years without complaint, then left at the last minute in 'protest'.
