  1. I believe everyone is talking about Trump... I wonder how much he'll stiff this town for... LOL B/A
  2. Oct 11 (Reuters) - United States and China are said to reach a partial trade deal and could set up a trade truce, a Bloomberg reporter said in a tweet http://bit.ly/2IFV28K on Friday. (Reporting by Bhargav Acharya in Bengaluru) 40.1K people are talking about this The Washington Times - Friday, September 20, 2019 President Trump insisted on a “complete” U.S.-China trade deal Friday, saying it’s wonderful that Beijing is buying U.S. farm products but that he won’t settle for half-measures. “That’s not what I’m looking for. We’re looking for the big deal,” he told reporters at a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. “I’m not looking for a partial deal, I’m looking for a complete deal.” Well you have to start somewhere... If partial is the best he can do, it's better than no deal... B/A
  3. Sure he can, don't you know that was Soro's money... Come on... Pizzagate, Spies, Obama's birth certificate, Clinton, the media is the enemy, Ted Cruz's father assassinated Kennedy, asbestos is a con, access Hollywood tape is fake... Oh well you get the picture. B/A
  4. Funny his 6 or 7 staunch supporters here have all descended to sniffling crybaby snowflakes who whine all day... My how things change. B/A
  5. Yup you are correct, next year America will be great again when this nightmare is over. B/A
  6. That would be an awesome video if it paid tribute to a real patriot not some phony. B/A
  7. What's negative, the truth? Is the truth that he tells his people to do as he says not as he does negative? Talk about a con job... Geeez he could wrap himself in a red flag with gold stars and his flock would still follow him off the cliff. B/A
  8. Oh dear negmiester, did you buy some of his Chinese junk??? B/A
  9. American made? You mean like all his imported crap he peddles to his worshippers? LOL B/A
  10. So the conservative party is dropping him, and a few danglers are hanging on, like the last ones on the Titanic. This week my dad who is in his 80s and a die hard Trump supporter with a MAGA hat, said he has had enough. He is not going to vote for Trump, he thinks he is causing too much damage to America's good reputation. His words. Now he is just one guy in a neighborhood of retirees and Trump supporters. He is making a switch to any republican who runs. If his buddies start to say the same thing, that would be a trend. B/A
  11. It appears he is silencing himself... He refuses to end it with his evidence... Or is it another lie? Yup the conservatives are heading for the doors. FOX NEWS, Graham, McConnell, and many others... The crowd of people you are touting are certainly not conservatives. Conservatives don't applaud increasing the debt, they don't applaud turning and running from our allies, they don't applaud bailouts. So conservatives are demonstrating they have had enough of this fraud. B/A
  12. Elizabeth Warren is telling a lie about herself. Again. The media are covering for her. Again. It is by now well established that Elizabeth Warren is a serial liar. She lied about her parents having to elope because of racism against her mother, who was white. She lied about being the first nursing mother to take the bar exam in New Jersey (which doesn’t keep such records). She lied about being a “single mom” when she met her second and present husband (she was still married, and had not yet filed for divorce). She lied about the death of Michael Brown, which was not a murder. Only recently, after more than 30 years, has she stopped lying about being a Cherokee and a woman of color. Lately Warren has been telling a story about how a boss supposedly fired her from a teaching gig after discerning at a glance that she was pregnant. Her own previous telling was otherwise: She walked away from that job. After teaching two days a week in 1971, “By the end of the first year I was visibly pregnant, and the principal did what principals did in those days: wished me luck, showed me the door, and hired someone else for the job,” Warren says on the stump. The clear takeaway is that she was fired for being pregnant. On Twitter she added this week, “By June I was visibly pregnant — and the principal told me the job I’d already been promised for the next year would go to someone else.” (The principal in question, Edward Pruzinsky, died 20 years ago.) A Washington Free Beacon report found suggestive but not conclusive evidence: records from the Riverdale, N.J., Board of Education show that Warren was offered an extension on her contract as a two-day-a-week speech pathologist in April of 1971, but she resigned and her resignation was “accepted with regret.” True, it’s conceivable that this is a kind of fiction and that Warren was forced to resign by that nasty principal who hated pregnant women. (Firing women for being pregnant has been illegal only since 1978). But the Free Beacon report happens to be perfectly consistent with Warren’s previous version of the story, the version she told when she had no motive to whip up a tale of woe. In a 2007 interview, she said: “I did that [teach] for a year, and then that summer I didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an ‘emergency certificate,’ it was called. I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me.’” If the principal had fired her in June, why would she have needed to go to grad school over the summer to do course work? The response from the media has been fatuous. Coverage falls into the following categories: Republicans pounce, and it must have happened to Warren because it happened to others, therefore the larger truth is what matters. A HuffPost piece by Amanda Terkel is a classic of partisan water-carrying: “People Get Fired From Their Jobs Without Being ‘Fired’ All The Time.” Yes, well, people win Nobel prizes all the time too, but I’d still be lying if I said I was one of them. The issue is not whether the situation Warren describes ever happened to anyone else but whether she is telling the truth. USA Today ran with this curiously discreet headline, seemingly constructed to warn readers that the matter was too trivial to read about: “Elizabeth Warren defends story that she was fired for being pregnant after more details surface.” Instead of presenting facts as facts, it tarnished them as conservative-discovered details. This is one of the unloveliest tricks of the mainstream liberal press: They hate to do their jobs and dig up information if it might make preferred candidates look bad, so they get scooped by conservative outlets, then they sniff “consider the source” when inconvenient truths appear. “Conservatives have latched on to the changes in her account as yet another example of a ‘made up’ story,’ wrote the paper, “along with the now-infamous claim to Native American ancestry.” Which, er, has now been proven a lie. The paper then buried Warren’s lie under accounts of various women who said they had been discriminated against because they were pregnant. Note that when President Trump lies or says something that isn’t true, the media happily set the record straight. There are only two issues allowed in the room: what Trump said, and the truth. No supporters are brought in to say they believe him. The HuffPost doesn’t take pains to note that what Trump claimed has actually happened to others. And USA Today doesn’t poison the wells by informing us “liberals have latched on” to something Trump said. Truth is framed as partisan only when doing so might aid the left. The New York Times, taking on unpaid-publicist duties, served up the studiously non-judgmental headline “Elizabeth Warren Details Her Account of Losing Teaching Job Because of Pregnancy” instead of something more pointed but also more informative, e.g. “Warren Repeats Lie.” The Times characterized her sticking to the lie as assertive and bold — “pushing back against any suggestion that she had misrepresented” her departure from the school. The paper claimed in a tweet that she was “refuting” rather than simply contradicting truthful reports. The gong for most outlandish headline in a supposedly nonpartisan outlet goes to the Washington Post, though, for this beauty: “Conservatives claim Elizabeth Warren lied about pregnancy firing. Women reality-checked them on social media.” A farrago of irrelevance, the piece noted that “On Twitter, women told stories of being fired outright for being pregnant…or being told during interviews or meetings that pregnancy was a mark against them as they competed for positions, promotions and raises. They wrote of contracts not being renewed after they gave birth, and of positions that were revoked…” None of this has any bearing on whether Elizabeth Warren lied. It’s like saving other boys at Brett Kavanaugh’s private school mistreated women, so he must have also. The WaPo went all-out to frame the question of truth as a matter of whatever the mob wants it to be: “The chorus of voices sharing tales of misconduct served as yet another rebuttal to a concerted campaign to undermine a prominent woman’s account of misconduct.” The story dismissed the details Warren supplied in 2007 as simply “an old interview” that provided “supposed evidence that she has been misleading,” leaving unmentioned that 2007 Warren flatly contradicts 2019 Warren. By covering for Warren’s tall tale, the media are ensuring that the story will stay alive (because it’s disputed), that Warren will keep lying (because she rightly thinks the media have her back) and that its self-image as a profession of brave truth-seekers will continue to decay. The more the media behave like the DNC’s propaganda arm, the more Americans will dismiss them as such. https://www.yahoo.com/news/media-scramble-jets-elizabeth-warren-194204793.html Even the media can't help this liar... Liar, liar election bid on fire. B/A
  13. WASHINGTON — The president’s decision to bulk up his legal team with former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy amid a widening impeachment inquiry is drawing criticism from one of his high-profile supporters. On Wednesday morning, the day after news leaked that Gowdy was set to serve as outside counsel to the president, Victoria Toensing, a veteran Washington lawyer who has been working with Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, expressed concern and disbelief that the onetime advocate for congressional oversight would be coming onboard. Former Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina. (Photo: Joshua Roberts/Reuters) “Trey Gowdy doesn’t know s***,” she said. Toensing argued that Gowdy mishandled the select committee that investigated Democrat Hillarious Clinton’s handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. She also took issue with comments Gowdy made last year in which he urged Trump to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into the Trump campaign’s role in Russian attempts to intervene in the 2016 presidential race. “He screwed up the Benghazi hearings, and he came out with the advice to Trump, ‘Well, if you’ve done nothing wrong, just talk to Bob Mueller.’” Toensing and her husband, Joe diGenova, work with Giuliani though they are not officially on Trump’s legal team. The pair, who are close with the president, are regulars on the conservative cable network Fox News. Last month, the channel reported they were “working off the books” with Giuliani to help get opposition research on former Vice President Joe Biden, who is currently mounting a White House bid. In March of last year, it was announced that Toensing and DiGenova were set to formally join the team of lawyers working for the president on the Mueller probe. However, days later, Jay Sekulow, who works as Trump’s personal attorney along with Giuliani, said the pair could not come onboard due to conflicts. “Those conflicts do not prevent them from assisting the president in other legal matters,” Sekulow said. After issuing her scathing critique of Gowdy, Toensing went on to suggest that other lawyers working for the president shared her opinion. “He’s not on the team. Trey Gowdy is not on the team. Who told you Trey Gowdy? Not to my knowledge, not to Rudy’s knowledge, not Joe’s knowledge,” said Toensing, who had not heard of the move at the time of her interview with Yahoo News on Wednesday morning. “I have to check that with Rudy because that would be a joke, because we all don’t think much of him,” she said of Gowdy, adding, “Are you kidding? ... Trey is a joke among us.” However, by Wednesday evening, Sekulow officially announced Gowdy’s appointment. “I am pleased to announce that former Congressman Trey Gowdy is joining our team as counsel to the president,” Sekulow said. “I have known Trey for years and worked with him when he served in Congress. His legal skills and his advocacy will serve the president well. Trey’s command of the law is well known and his service on Capitol Hill will be a great asset as a member of our team.” Neither Gowdy nor Sekulow responded to a request for comment about Toensing’s misgivings.

(Photo: Washington Post/Getty Images) Gowdy’s addition to the legal team comes as the president faces a widening impeachment inquiry focusing on a July phone call he had with Ukraine’s newly elected leader during which he asked the government in Kiev to investigate Biden’s son. Last month, following news of a whistleblower complaint about the call and evidence that Trump had withheld a $400 million aid package to Ukraine, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry. That inquiry is being led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and two other committee chairs. Giuliani, a former New York City mayor who plays a dual role of legal adviser and media surrogate for the president, defended Gowdy when asked about Toensing’s criticisms. Specifically, he suggested Gowdy’s experience on Capitol Hill would be an asset to Trump. “My opinion would be he would be an excellent addition, filling a gap that is getting to be more and more important because, frankly, Schiff is off the rails,” Giuliani said. Giuliani also discussed how Toensing and diGenova work with him and Sekulow. “The president is being represented in his personal capacity — because he’s still an American citizen with all the rights of an American citizen — by Jay and me,” Giuliani told Yahoo News. “Joe and Vicky are not representing the president. They are … representing some people that have information that could be very valuable to us.” Giuliani did not specify who those people were, however. For her part, Toensing described the role she and diGenova play with regard to Trump and the president’s lawyers as unofficial. “Joe and I are very informal, and we work with Rudy a lot, and we think the world of Jay,” Toensing said. “We do what we do.” B/A
  14. George Will has a warning for Republican lawmakers: If you don’t stand up to President Donald Trump, you deserve to lose everything next year. Will, a longtime conservative voice who quit the party in 2016 when it was clear Trump would be nominated, slammed the president’s decision to “betray” America’s Kurdish allies in Syria. He said the move could complete “the destruction of the GOP’s advantage regarding foreign policy.” But much of Will’s column in The Washington Post railed against the Republican lawmakers who continue to stand beside Trump. He wrote: Will added that Trump’s refusal to cooperate with the House impeachment inquiry into his dealings with Ukraine was in itself an impeachable offense. “In 13 months, all congressional Republicans who have not defended Congress by exercising ‘the constitutional rights of the place’ should be defeated,” he wrote. Read the full column here. Conservatives are heading for the door. B/A
  15. Are you amazed that Trump claims to be Christian? Or that Christians take him at his word? I know I am amazed by my friends and family who support a guy who has broken every commandment. B/A
  16. Prior to President Donald Trump taking the stage at Thursday night’s campaign rally in Minnesota—his first since the impeachment inquiry was announced—his son Eric Trump warmed the crowd up by leading them in a “Lock him up!” chant directed at Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. The House Democrats announced last month that they would be pursuing an impeachment inquiry into the president’s attempts to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden, who is a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani have pushed unsubstantiated claims that the former vice president forced Ukraine to fire a prosecutor in order to make an investigation into his son go away. “How do you think his son is feeling after embezzling a lot of money?” Eric Trump asked the audience Thursday. “A lot of crookedness, he is not feeling too good. Maybe ‘Lock her up!’ goes to ‘Lock him up!’” Trump, naturally, was referencing the long-running “Lock her up!” Trump rally chants that have been directed at former Democratic presidential nominee Hillarious Clinton since 2016. After some in the crowd began taking up the chant, Eric Trump added: “I like ‘Lock her up!’ a little bit more. but I don’t know, I like that. That is a good idea.” The audience then embraced the chant as it reverberated throughout the arena for a sustained period of time. Trump appeared to bask in it throughout. After it died down, Trump told his father’s supporters they didn’t need to “lock him up” because they would “beat the hell out of all of them, we are going to win.” https://www.yahoo.com/news/eric-trump-leads-rally-crowd-010338031.html I don't care who you are that's funny... Well at least ironic! B/A
  17. Conservatives Troll Trump With 'Photograph' Of Him And Arrested Giuliani Pals A picture of President Donald Trump with Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman ― two Soviet-born associates of Rudy Giuliani who were arrested this week on federal campaign finance charges ― has already been given the Nickelback “Photograph” treatment. And it came from the right, not the left. Conservative website The Bulwark, which often features anti-Trump commentary from the right, shared this clip from senior video editor Barry Rubin: 10.2K people are talking about this The clip, of course, was a reference to a tweet Trump posted last week taunting former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. That photo showed the Bidens with someone identified as a “Ukrainian gas exec,” but was actually Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner Devon Archer. Archer and the former vice president’s son were on the board of the Ukrainian company Burisma Holdings. Trump’s tweet was removed when Nickelback filed a copyright complaint.
