  1. Just wait for the next Democrat to use it... Let's see what people think then.... These guys, none of them play by the rules... B/A
  2. Yup I have never liked Mitt, but he followed his heart... Name one other person who wasn't politically motivated. B/A
  3. Trump obstructed, by refusing any of his people to participate. Even his own party members admitted that what he did was wrong. Both Democrats and Republicans put party before truth, justice and the American way. The lawyers lied. The politicians lied. This entire thing proved one thing. Our system is completely corrupted. Only one man voted his conscience. Only one man put his honesty above everything else. Many say it will cost him politically. I think it will resurrect him politically. B/A
  4. Personally, I think everyone of those people in D.C. needs to go... The democrats have no plan for the country. The Republicans just proved they don't care about law and order. Refusing to hear testimony and stating they would be biased before the trial begins should be criminal. I don't think any of them should get a pass... When the jury says, yeah, what he did is wrong and unacceptable. but we are going to accept it, tells me all I need to know about their lack of integrity, inability to serve the constitution and their complete disregard for America. JMHO And also in my opinion, any American who gives either party a pass on this display we just witnessed should turn in their voter card. They don't have the sense to make an intelligent decision. Both parties need to go and they need to go now. Whew...... B/A
  5. Nope the GOP sold their souls... They admit what Trump did was wrong, unacceptable. etc.. They refused for the first time in history to have witnesses. They put party before the constitution, their constituents, and America. They made a deal with the devil... They committed to acquittal before the trial ever started.... Talk about a sham. The GOP is in a steady decline along with the Democrats... I won't be surprised to see the rise of a new party in the near future. B/A
  6. At the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, President Trump celebrated his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial, attacking Democrats and taking an apparent shot at Republican Sen. Mitt Romney, who crossed party lines to vote to remove Trump from office. “As you know, our great country, and your president, have been put through a terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people, and by so doing, very badly hurt our nation,” Trump said, reading from a teleprompter. “Yesterday, courageous Republican politicians and leaders had the wisdom, fortitude and strength to do what everyone knows was right.” It was the president’s first public appearance since the Senate voted to acquit him of the charges contained in two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — that had been endorsed by the House of Representatives in December.

(Evan Vucci/AP) Before the vote, Romney announced he would vote to convict Trump for abuse of power. “Corrupting an election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and destructive violation of one’s oath of office that I can imagine,” Romney said, adding: “I swore an oath before God to exercise impartial justice. I am profoundly religious. My faith is at the heart of who I am.” At the prayer breakfast, Trump said, “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong.” The president was scheduled to deliver a statement related to his impeachment “victory” at the White House later Thursday. Earlier, before taking his seat, the president held up a copy of the USA Today, with the headline “ACQUITTED” splashed across the top of its front page. The crowd inside the Washington Hilton applauded. Trump did the same with a copy of the Washington Post and its headline: “Trump acquitted.” Photo: Evan Vucci/AP House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who signed off on the inquiry that led to Trump’s impeachment, was the first speaker at the annual event, saying a prayer for the “poor and persecuted.” As Pelosi was introduced, the president, visibly annoyed, folded his arms and looked away. In his own remarks, Trump also appeared to take a shot at Pelosi, who has repeatedly said she prays for Trump when asked about him. "Nor do I like people who say, 'I pray for you,' when they know that that's not so," he said. "So many people have been hurt. We can't let that go on. And I'll be discussing that a little bit later at the White House." https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-national-prayer-breakfast-acquittal-democrats-romney-faith-144735074.html Yeah that's what Jesus would do.... B/A
  7. The only ones pissed off are Trumpkins... They've been pissed off since 2016. The sorriest winners in history. It is weird that instead of promoting what's good for America, they spew hate and post idiotic tweets... Weird stuff. B/A
  8. Great post Bigwave... And look what we've become... Exactly what he warned about. A country that profits from never ending war. A country that creates bogymen to keep the war machine turning. How many young Americans have died so corporations could profit, so those who run those corporations can live in luxury? How many senior citizens have gone hungry or have not had healthcare, because we spend our tax dollars on countless weapons of mass destruction? Why has America fallen in education, now ranking outside the top 20 countries in most categories? Why do Americans support those things that go against their fundamental beliefs? President Eisenhower made a point to warn Americans against the evil that would take control. And here we are. A country that puts bombs before people. A country that kills for profit. Thanks for the post. B/A
  9. Nearing the end of his impeachment trial and on the eve of his third State of the Union address, President Trump’s job approval rating in the latest Gallup poll hit its highest level since he took office: 49 percent, compared with 50 percent of respondents who disapprove. The survey, released Tuesday, showed a gain of 4 percentage points in Trump’s approval since early January. It also was 3 points over his previous high-water mark of 46 percent in late April 2019, around the time special counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released. When Trump took office in 2017, his approval rating was 45 percent. It has hit a low of 35 percent three times, all during his first year in office. Gallup Trump’s latest approval bump appears to have been driven by higher ratings among Republicans (94 percent, up 6 percentage points from the previous poll) and independents (42 percent, up 5 points). It also probably reflects Americans’ confidence in the economy, which according to Gallup is higher than at any point in the past two decades. Additionally, Gallup’s pollsters noted that more Americans approved (53 percent) than disapproved (45 percent) of Trump’s controversial decision to launch the U.S. drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, a top Iranian military commander. President Trump and first lady Melania Trump.

The Senate is scheduled to vote on the charges Wednesday, and Trump’s acquittal is considered almost certain. The survey found that 52 percent of Americans would support his acquittal by the Senate, compared with 46 percent who want him convicted and removed from office. https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-gallup-poll-approval-49-all-time-high-174002781.html B/A
  10. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a ***** off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!’” the president said at a rally for Republican senator Luther Strange, Undaunted, Trump wrote on Twitter: “If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!” I couldn't agree more... Fire any son of a ***** who disrespects our flag. B/A
  11. Please defend this lack of respect.... As for me I'm not the president, but I don't dance and parade around while the Anthem is playing... Do you? B/A
  12. Come on CL... Simple video from a phone shot by an attendee... Truth is, he only cares about himself and the rest is a con job... Maybe he'll hire Colin as his next cabinet member... B/A
  13. President Donald Trump was chastised Monday after video footage showed him goofing off as the national anthem played during a Super Bowl party at his West Palm Beach golf resort. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/article239918518.html As everyone else around Trump (including his wife and youngest son) stood solemnly with their hands over their hearts, Trump fidgeted, waved his hands, pointed at people and pretended to conduct the music. The video of the president cutting up during the anthem, first reported by the Miami Herald, was part of an Instagram story posted by a real estate agent at the party, which was held for a select group of the president’s supporters. The event cost American taxpayers $3.4 million, according to an analysis by HuffPost. Trump has said that athletes who take a knee at NFL games to protest racism and police brutality — a movement launched by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick — should be fired because they’re disrespecting America and the military. “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing — you shouldn’t be there,” Trump told “Fox & Friends” in 2018, adding, “Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.” When a football player takes a knee, the team owner should “get that son of a ***** off the field,” Trump told a rally in 2017. Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren slammed celebrities Beyoncé and Jay-Z on Sunday for sitting during the anthem. She hasn’t yet remarked on the president’s antics. The Miami Herald mocked Trump in an editorial by sarcastically noting his “burst of patriotic fervor.” It’s “amazing that so many ‘patriots’ who brandish the flag and wear the red cap actually don’t mind any of this,” the editorial noted. https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/donald-trump-anthem-super-bowl-013642229.html I'm sure Colin is very proud...
