From one of Trump's tweets:

Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%.

Ahahaha, it's actually 9% and 22% per Axios. Classic example of Trump getting the morons to correct his errors and thus spread the message even further.

Porchlight

Having people scream Trump's a racist may have been tuned out by now.

No "may" about it, TM.

Here's some good analysis from AmSpec, echoing what we've been talking about here on JOM:

https://spectator.org/trump-troll-level-grand-master/

There is no downside to tying the Squad millstone around the collective Dems' neck.

I wonder what those dozens of Dem House freshmen who had to run as fake Republicans to pick off R seats are thinking right now.

Kevin McCarthy @GOPLeader, “The President’s Tweets were not Racist. The controversy over the tweets is ALL POLITICS. I will vote against this resolution.” Thank you Kevin!

Porchlight,

I am listening to Tony Katz on local radio who absolutely does NOT understand that Trump knows what he is doing. He persists in thinking Trump is getting in the way of the story.

I am tempted to tweet him but I am super exasperated at his wasting my time.

Mark Sanford! Good grief!

And where does this leave us?

It leaves us with a President who actually fights for his voters and his country and his culture, which we haven’t had since Ronald Reagan.

Good Morning! I wasn't surprised that all four of Maine's delegation rebuked Trump's statements. Jared Golden (D) is the ME-2 congressman who won the seat despite Trump winning the 2nd district. ME-2 includes Lewiston,so I read Golden's statement and he agrees that Trump is divisive,blah,blah. He is walking a fine line,considering some of the constituents he represents. There is never any reporting of the Somali community in Maine,unless there are youths involved in brawls.

Buford Gooch

I'm amused by the never-Trump people who saw the light and came over to grudgingly support him. This series of tweets has them wetting their pants again. They will eventually figure out that this was a good political move.

From Monty James (a commenter at Ace of Spades):

It's not 11d chess. It's just been so long since we've seen a Republican get in and mix it up with Democrats that we confuse it for some master plan; most of them don't like to get their bow ties mussed.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

On the matter of the marvelous Trump tweets: wasn't it Cortez who said it's more important to be morally right than factually correct?

https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1151117140965171201.html

Excellent thread by John Hayward of Breitbart, explaining how Trump has changed the method of dealing with the democrats attacks.

First line:

"The "understanding" until now has been that Democrats get to be as vicious, racist, and divisive as they want to be, freely challenging the patriotism of anyone who disagrees with their policy agenda, and the only acceptable GOP response was a meek call for unity."

Original thread if you want to see how many people are in agreement:

https://twitter.com/Doc_0/status/1151117140965171201

But what if Pelosi had successfully marginalized the Squad? That was her plan. She very deliberately goaded them into a public fight. Trump barged in and made sure they are going to stay front and center in the Democratic Party.

Helpful hint of the day for all the toxic males on JOM:

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

MissMarple2

neo,

Pelosi successfully marginalizing them as far as policy and such hurts them, but helps the democrats, as they don't look so crazy.

Trump now has the crazies front and center, and while Omar may be backed by her Somali Minnesotans, New Yorkers are going to not only boot out AOC but some may be taking a second look at Trump. As will a lot of other Americans, who are sick of being lectured to by people on the left.

That's what I think, anyway.

jimmyk

“Order a bra! One damn Amazon order and I have boobs all over my FB feed!”

Do I actually have to order one or can I just Google them? :)

sbwaters

Donald Trump’s plan must have been to see who amongst the Dems, GOPe, and the media has the attention span of a gnat.

All of them, apparently.

Nothing about "Then come back and show us how.... ....it is done." — and that is in the same series of tweets — says that Trump is racist or xenophobic.

Jane

I miss Hit!

Porchlight

It's just been so long since we've seen a Republican get in and mix it up with Democrats that we confuse it for some master plan

I don't think this works, because no Republican has ever done what Trump does.

If people can't figure out what you are doing (over and over again) and you keep doing it and keep succeeding (over and over again) then yes, you are a master, by definition.

Porchlight

Do any of the Squad currently have Dem challengers?

I don't see it. Who is brave enough to take them on? Your house will be firebombed.

Personally, since they're so toxic to Dems' chances elsewhere, I don't mind if they don't get beaten. As Nancy says, they're only four votes.

Ig, if you (by chance) are on this thread, now or later, I just read your comment about the woman you've been interested in for some time -- plus you remarking (paraphrase here) 'you might try it with her again in six months or so.'

Ig, people don't change, especially twisted, mental cases. There is something wrong with her that you can't fix, not with your compassion or love. You will be oh, so sorry if you become involved with her. Again, people with devious intent, and she certainly used it in this instance, enjoy their little games. She's sick.

I'm blunt, but would hate to see you hurt by a cancerous mind, and she seems to have one.

I'm so sorry

Bombshell in the Epstein courtroom. Thread from a Fox reporter. First line:

"Wow. Epstein accuser lawyer Brad Edwards drops bombshell saying Epstein, during his 13 month jail sentence in which he was allowed to spend 12 hours a day in his private office adjacent to his attorney, had office visitors and engaged in sexual abuse while in custody."

This ties Epstein to Khashoggi. fwiw

Mark Meadows‏Verified account @RepMarkMeadows · 16h16 hours ago


Think about where we are: we’ve got an overwhelmed southern border and humanitarian crisis, and this is the left’s response:

- Decriminalize border crossings
- Free healthcare for illegal immigrants
- Abolish ICE
- Refuse increased border security
- Oppose citizenship question

Neo

Trump focuses attention on the 4 young color-coordinated morons, and leaves the 25 candidates in a media vacuum. Polls indicate that the majority of Americans agree with Trump that the 4 color-coordinated morons are in fact morons, and that we are fed up with their nonsense. Trump had a clear strategic reason for the tweet.

Do they have a link to what Stone tweeted?

His name came up recently when prosecutors, at his trial, admitted that the Russiansocial media trolls had no connection to the Kremlin.

Does Stone need to shut up because of this?

Maybe one of the victim's neighbors should go smoke some pot and then head over to the judge's house and kill his family.

They wouldn't be responsible for their actions, after all.

What is the advantage of an instapot over a regular old crock pot? They have a fantastic deal on Prime Day, but do I really need one more appliance in my kitchen when we eat out 4-5 nights a week?

Instapot is awesome for taking what's in the CrockPot overnight, to done and on a plate in 25 minutes.

instapot is a pressure cooker. it is supposedly faster.

The other great thing about it is, you can saute onions or brown ground beef etc right in the pot and then add everything else for your slow cooking, instead of having to use 2 (or more) separate pots to do that.

Local Fox anchor caught on video dropping f-bomb as she apparently blasts station execs for asking her to hide her presence on conservative social media site

"Fuck them," Lake can be heard saying in response to a local newspaper that reported she had a Parler account — a conservative social media platform not unlike Twitter. "They're 20-year-old dopes. That's a rag for selling marijuana."

According to FTVLive, station executives reportedly asked Lake to drop the reference to her Parler account from her Twitter page.

Leading up to her outburst, co-anchor John Hook can be heard saying, "I think they just think it's been branded as a far-right kind of place ... so they don't want you tied into anything like that where you're going to get blowback from the New Times or whoever it is."

Democrats apparently believe voters are too stupid to comprehend who they are voting for or why they are voting for them.

https://thinkprogress.org/democrats-sue-over-florida-law-that-puts-trumps-name-at-the-top-of-the-2020-ballot-db0a3c3886c3/

Democrats argue that people sometimes decide their vote based on where a candidate’s name appears on the ballot, a phenomenon known as “position bias.”

R. Kelly denied bail in sex crimes case cnb.cx/2jPbA56

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Newly back from a couple weeks in China and lots of catch-up to do.

In my emails I see this, I wonder if this has been discussed or if anyone knows more. Did PDJT nominate this guy? The email does NOT mention President Trump, but does make a reference to "business as usual".

AFA.org:
Judge (Suleyman) Ozerden is the district judge for the Southern District of Mississippi who refused to protect Christians from being forced to follow the Obamacare contraceptive mandate. Judge Ozerden refused to hear the complaint of the Catholic Diocese of Biloxi, whose leaders said the contraceptive mandate violated their religious liberty and the deeply held religious belief in the sanctity of human life.

It's no longer business as usual with America's activist judges, so it can no longer be business as usual in choosing America's judges. We must choose committed constitutionalists who will fight to set the American judicial ship right, and Judge Ozerden has proven by his record not to be that.

TAKE ACTION: Urge your U.S. senators to vote against the confirmation of Judge Ozerden to the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

At least 79 members of Congress, including Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), who is now acting White House Chief of Staff, and Mike Pompeo (R-KS), who is U.S. Secretary of State, signed on to a letter to the court in defense of religious liberty and the sanctity of human life and on behalf of the Catholic Diocese.

Judge Ozerden refused to hear the arguments of these members of Congress and chose instead to side with the Obama Administration and its contraceptive mandate.

On no Trump is in trouble.

https://www.breitbart.com/sports/2019/07/14/poll-megan-rapinoe-beats-trump-hypothetical-presidential-race/

the fact that he polls in the low 40s against any Democrat he gets tested against shows that electability concerns are overrated and Democrats should feel comfortable voting for the candidates they like the best, not just the ones they think have the best chance of beating Trump

Hopefully the Progtards truly believe that.

He woke up to find a black student in the process of stealing my son's play station or whatever the hell it was. It turned into a big deal with my son on the wrestling team and the thief on the hoop team. I knew of the problem at the time but didn't know until recently just how serious it was.

[U.K.] Library cancels long-running Christian playgroup after people complain that the children are singing songs about God

Noah's Ark playgroup had been meeting at the library for almost a decade when library administrators decided to end the weekly meetings.

The playgroup formerly met at the West Sussex town library in Burgess Hill, and welcomed children to play, read, and sing songs together. The library made the decision in conjunction with the West Sussex County Council.

According to the Daily Mail, some of the Christian-themed songs sung by the children included "Mr. Noah Built an Ark" — to the tune of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" — and similar jingles.

A spokesperson for the council said that the county libraries' "Rhyme Time" groups — which the Christian playgroup had been attending — would no longer be permitted at the facilities around the county.

Tom R

Don't know all the details but apparently Pelosi said something inflammatory against Trump on the House floor so Collins raised a point of order that she violated parliamentary rules, requested her comments be removed from the record, and called for a vote to temporarily suspend Pelosi as Speaker for the rest of the day.
