First by the way.
Dem Party now believes in censorship( no sound on MessNBC last night during rally and projection , calling people crazy when in fact they are the insane ones.)

Reminder that the President is speaking at the American Legion convention this afternoon.

Following from the last thread, I think they treat rick Wilson like a mushroon the poisonous kind. But mcturtke venture into the grishenko at
Their own risk.

How tone deaf can one woman be?
Hillary says she should have called Trump a creep during the campaign.
Her trench coat wearing husband is known world wide as The Big Creep, a nickname bestowed on him by the Big Lewinsky.
Hill is the antipersuader.

We were told for eight years that if we shut down the government then Republicans in Congress would be blamed. So shut it down, Mr. President. You have nothing to lose.

Ah Leon wolf is at the dumpster fire of a worthwhile publication.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

The press seems to be all offended that President Trump called them out.

He's endured almost 7 months of being called everything from a moron to a Nazi. They've attacked his family. They have abetted the democrats in blocking his nominees. They have spread rumors and lies without named sources.

After all of this, they are upset that he returns fire.

He doesn't follow the establishment rules for Republican presidents, who normally just shrug and let the press set the narrative.

Too damn bad for them.

Re Jen Rubin, it would seem that she and all the other 'conservative' NeverTrumpers have a way to start with the conclusion "Trump is unfit!" and work backwards to whatever he says. One of these days they will apply it to something it is essentially the same as what other presidents have said, but it won't matter, because "Trump!"

Where is the MFM concern for Americans that THEY regularly slander & vilify?

For decades we have been called racists, Islamaphobes, homophobes, misogynists, bigots, xenophobes, flat-earthers, deplorables, Russian agents, & now Nazis.

So the Marines saw value in standing down all air ops a few weeks ago because of all the crashes and dead Marines.

Perhaps something good will come from the Navy standing down all ops worldwide to sort out why their ships keep getting run into other ships, killing Sailors and breaking perfectly good expensive ships.

I vote to stand down the entire federal government for six months and then decide which departments to fire back up. Congress can go away for six months too.

How could it be any worse?

Hi, RG...

I saw your tweet of the football team pix.

Question: Is the team getting chafed from athletic supporters or are they all, as a group, trying to send a manspreading message? ;-)

From the American Thinker article linked above:

George Will lamented that “conservatism” has been “soiled by scowling primitives whose irritable gestures lack mental ingredients” and also “hijacked” by “vulgarians.”

George Will is another columnist who should have a Thesaurusectomy. His style has always irritated me.

This is the same man, who along with his colleague and fellow traveler, Dr. Krauthammer, proclaimed Barack Obama to be a highly intelligent and impressive man after meeting the President-Elect at a Washington DC cocktail party in 2008. Whether they were inebriated or just looking for an invitation to the White House, it was a ridiculous statement to make about a man whose entire campaign consisted of one speech regurgitated as From the American Thinker article linked above:

I suppose that we knuckle draggers just can't be expected to understand their point of view. Perhaps if George and his friends chose to speak in simple declarative sentences and saved the $25 words to impress their colleagues at those exclusive Washington parties, they might be able to communicate more effectively.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Barbara,

I ran into this attitude on Twitter when I respectfully asked Keith Williamson (who is NOT nice when dealing with the general public) and Rick Wilson to come out into the middle of the country and talk to people.

They were exceptionally rude and insulting. I couldn't believe it. They were, even in the spring of 2016, so consumed with Trump hatred that they had moved on to Trump supporters as well.

I detest Obama. I got to the point where I couldn't even listen to his constant lecturing. But I didn't hate his supporter - just thought they were being misled.

As far as I am concerned, any Republican who hires Rick Wilson is an automatic NO vote from me.

And I still think Wilson had something to do with that creepy dossier, since he had connections with Jeb Bush.

Middle America sets their hair on fire, and it should. President Trump understands what is happening in the electorate, and they not only can't relate, they refuse to acknowledge the importance of an awakened and active American heartland.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

narciso,

I am continually amazed at the over-the-top reaction in some circles to the rise of Donald Trump.

Bret Stephens calling him Pol Pot is just the latest example.

Why do they do this? They weren't nearly as harsh on Obama, who did a whole lot of damage to the country with inept foreign and military policy, not to mention being divisive and saddling us with obamacare.

I really have tried to figure this out. All I can come up with are outlandish conspiracy theories in which the NeverTrumpers are afraid dark secrets about them will come out.

OL,

I think that you're right on point in drawing that parallel. I only hope that the problem does not end in the same way. What these people do not seem to realize is that President Trump is the only leader standing between us and "the horror" of either revolution or its brother, another Civil War.

That’s odd. I thought he made up straw premises he could knock down. For instance, I did not see where Trump demanded we prop up a central government.

Trump indicated our goal was not nation-building but defeating terrorists by allowing no safe haven. To do that we would support people learning how to defend themselves.

Janet the expert 🚬

a bit of another good old post from Mike Rowe last year -

" Let’s assume that Donald Trump is indeed popular among white men who didn’t graduate from college. The first question is, so what? Is this information newsworthy? Obviously, thousands of journalists think it is. To your point, the words “uneducated white men” now appear in hundreds of articles about Trump. But if this is truly important information, where were these reporters four years ago? In the last election, an even greater majority of African-American males who voted for President Obama had no college on their resume. Maybe I missed it, but I don’t recall any headlines or articles that delved into Obama’s popularity among “uneducated black men.”

If the media didn’t care about the lack of college among black men supporting Obama, why do they care so much about the lack of college among white men supporting Trump? Moreover, when exactly did a lack of college become synonymous with a lack of education?"
