Fact check: The copkiller that was featured in Trump’s incendiary video blaming Democrats for his release, was actually released by Joe Arpaio’s office in 1998 and re-entered the country during the George Bush administration. Remember, Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio, and the entire premise of Trump’s racist video is a lie. Big surprise, right?
No comment from President Trump that Kanye West finally realized that he had been “used” to push a political agenda.
Most people would be honored to have the President of the United States make an appearance at any event. But this president holds the record for being told to stay away from so many funerals. How horrible of a person would you have to be to hold this title? Oh boy, who to vote for in the Senate race? Mexico Joe Donnelly or China Mike Braun? Donnelly disinvested himself from the family business that moved a plant to Mexico but Braun today still imports the majority of his company’s auto parts from China. Sorry China Mike, Mexico Joe gets my vote.
I can understand the hurt people in the Quickly column feel — the need to try and destroy President Trump with every word in the dictionary, and thinking we need a lesson on the Constitution and some guidance on who we should vote for. I just want them to know that your comments haven’t changed my mind in the least because I will vote straight Republican for the first time in my voting career of over 40 years, and I will vote for President Trump again in 2020.

You’re boring the hell out of me!

The real elitists, for their information, are those one-percenters who pay few taxes, own two or three houses, have a yacht and maybe a Bentley, and laugh at the rank and file Republicans who enable and support them as they haul their swag to the bank.
Jill Wine-Banks: “As a former Army Counsel, I can tell you that it is illegal to use soldiers for domestic police actions. It’s also illegal to order shooting as Trump has. Following an illegal order is not defense as we learned at Nuremberg.”
Having no conscience or ability to learn from failure, people with any kind of anti-social personality disorder, have no innate sense of where the the limits are, or what they can get away with. Most are further impaired by a belief that they are the smartest person in the world, when evidence proves otherwise.
James “Mad Dog” Mattis, Secretary of Defense, was supposedly the one adult in the Trump administration. Well, you can forget that. Responding to a reporter’s question about whether the deployment of 5000 troops to the southern border was a political “stunt,” Mattis replied that “we don’t do stunts,” even though he is fully aware that his own military has assessed the deployment as completely unwarranted.
