Are Trump Fans ok with threatening war crimes (cultural sites in Iran) and actually commiting war crimes (Oil in Syria)?
View: https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1215834911015428096
Don't forget pardoning war criminals because the people on Fox told him to. Which is much more than 'just words'.
If she had adopted the dog she would have corrected PETA. Why would she draw fire from dog lovers everywhere?

Because she’s ingnorant, that’s why.

But you do you.
You said she was under fire from animal rights groups. Plural. Since you seem to be backing away from that statement, maybe you should admit that you made a false claim. Put up or...
Funny. The gang that cant shoot straight is going to find tax fraud when multiple IRS audits can’t.

Any idiot can make any claim about any thing. Remember, it‘s not the nature of the evidence, it’s seriousness of the accusation. Words you folks live by.
Tax fraud is a lot more serious than anything that AOC has been accused of. And we haven't gotten into the sexual harassment, Trump charitable fraud, education fraud, and stormy daniels extortion payments.
Is the swamp drained yet?
trump has used military action less than any other president since Jimmy Carter.

this is a shock for me because the usa mainstream echo chambers keep losing it over trump
Link? Also, Trump has been in office for much less time.

Any proof of tax fraud? Guilty until proven innocent. The new normal for you guys.

Any proof of sexual harrassment? How about charitable fraud? Any proof of education fraud? You do realize, I hope, Stormy signed a NDA, right? Let Schiff & The Gang handle extortion.. funny because neither of you seem to know what the word means.
 
We elected a black guy twice. Consider yours a stupid post.

AOC is an incredibly stupid person. That she is also a hispanic woman has nothing to do with anything critical coming from me. She is dumb. She is wrong. Adam schiff is dumb and he is wrong. That criticism has nothing to do with him being a white male.

Your apology probably won’t be accepted because I’m sick of this BS From you and everyone who perpetrates this garbage. Grow up already.

Edit: I should have been more nuanced here. Archie, your post irritated me because of the default racist assumption. The US will elect a woman possibly as soon as 2024. She could be an Indian American.
oh yeah, the US, the model of equality... pleeease…
your country's behaviour is what has perpetuated it - throughout it's history, and it hasn't exactly stopped

so, one of the guys voted in as President was black - did you personally vote for him?
45 presidential elections and only one non-white guy, and only one woman, has ever made it to the final round... (and not one republican)
That's only one of each in your entire history.
For now
, it'd be a step too far for the US to elect someone who's both.
It may slowly be changing, but it's a long way off still...
2024? Would be nice if you're right, but I have no confidence in that - and that's the time that would be nice, not necessarily the candidate you're referring to

did you personally vote for him?
Nope. I wasn’t impressed with his politics then and I’m not now.

Would be nice if you're right, but I have no confidence in that - and that's the time that would be nice, not necessarily the candidate you're referring to
I’ll submit to you that the “raging” racism/sexism going on in the US isn’t anything like what you are seeing on your news outlet of choice.

I don't think AOC has commented on the source of her pup one way or another. Which has been my point all along. Remember when you went after Clinton over Uranium one. Well, the investigation on that ended last week with a whimper.

Polling of 2024 republicans have Haley in a distant third behind Pence and Trump Jr. Barely ahead of Ivanka to boot. People who claim that the GOP will surely nominate Haley in 2024 are putting you on. Look how Fiorina did in 2016 and you will get the likely result for whichever woman runs in the GOP primary.

living here making an assessment about the racism or equality - it is not any worse than many european examples, in some ways it is better in some it is worse.
the equality issues seemed to have gotten worse the past 12 years, what does it mean? maybe too much social media fake outrage, entitlement mentality by the youth.

I wonder why. PETA and their supporters are very likely supporters of AOC and her politics. If she could clear the air, she would. She bought the dog.

Remember when you went after Clinton over Uranium one. Well, the investigation on that ended last week with a whimper.
Which should worry everybody. Is Hillary clean in your view?

Proof of tax fraud.
These maneuvers met with little resistance from the Internal Revenue Service, The Times found.

That is short-hand for "there's no fraud there."

Proof of charitable fraud.
Last month, a state judge ordered the president to give $2 million to the eight charities, or $250,000 per charity. Under the settlement, Mr. Trump’s lawyers also agreed to liquidate the Trump Foundation’s remaining assets of more than $1.7 million and disburse them to those same nonprofits, which have no connection to the president or his family.

If it was serious Trump would have been gone after for campaign violations. Why didn't they?


Proof of sexual assault. Summer Zervos.
Trump has denied assaulting Zervos.

Why is Zervos suing for defamation? Why were there no criminal charges filed in 2011?

Trump has vehemently denied all of the women’s accusations multiple times.

Apparently you don't understand what civil litigation is.. or the difference between civil action and criminal action.

Polling of 2024 republicans have Haley in a distant third behind Pence and Trump Jr. Barely ahead of Ivanka to boot. People who claim that the GOP will surely nominate Haley in 2024 are putting you on.
Polling showed a 90% probability of Hillary winning on the day of the election in 2016. Polling regarding candidates nearly 5 years from a National election maybe the dumbest thing posted in at least the last 30 minutes.

who mentioned uranium one. I got to go back a read.

I think AOC has every right to chose a dog from anywhere. This is a bit silly.
the problem djpbaltimore is the hypocrisy coming from AOC on most issues. right or wrong people chose to seize this moment of her not going to adopt a rescue mutt. the thing is the dog she has now has a home and it looked from the video to be a loving, safe, caring environment.

so the next time she chooses to scold the citizens on eating cows or particular lifestyle choices that she sees as against the environment, people can chose to blow her off like a road side evangelist or black israelites.
 
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK — Glacier National Park is removing signs that state all glaciers will be melted by 2020.

Park spokeswoman Gina Kurzmen explained that since the early 2000s scientists have reflected and analyzed data stating glaciers would recede by 2020.

Phil Jones no doubt is wondering what happened.
no comments from the hypocrites in hollywood or dc. they will go along selling carbon offsets to the uninformed.

AOC is learning that you don't need to go after every bad faith clickbait issue thrown in your direction. It is a distraction that almost no one cares about.

Proof definition- "the effect of evidence sufficient to persuade a reasonable person that a particular fact exists". I think most reasonable people would acknowledge that innocent people don't pay millions in civil settlements. I think most reasonable people would believe eye-witness accounts of harassment or abuse, especially when there are so many and some can be corroborated by friends who heard the claims at the time of the event.

Claiming that all the women are somehow lying or not credible is a good example of why Haley will likely not do well in a GOP primary. A lot of bias can be subconscious in nature. Although she has said some questionable things, I think Haley would be a competent and smart president considering the alternatives. But I am not the GOP electorate. People who want governing experience will go for Pence or De Santis. Those that want a hand grenade will go for Trump Jr or Hawley. Every single GOP presidential nomination to date has shown what women can expect from GOP voters. The 2024 poll is just more confirmation of the obvious. Haley has no lane IMO, unless a woman wins in 2020, which isn't likely.

Overall, if you are going to vote for Trump based on ideological grounds, just admit it. It makes more sense than contorting yourself into a pretzel trying to argue that Trump's shadiness is some plot to tarnish Trump's pristine reputation by the left wing media and quibbling about semantics. Trump is a stupid person. Trump is a corrupt person. He is not the first president who fits into those categories, nor will he be the last. Hillary is no saint, but the more investigations fail to come up with any grounds for prosecution either indicates that she was a smarter criminal than Trump, or the charges are mostly trumped up. As I have said consistently, feel free to investigate further. If she is dirty it would be good for the public to know.

I would like a link for the 90% figure. Nate Silver had it at 71% and that is without good polling that accounted for Comey and the FBI aiding Trump with their public announcement of the Clinton investigation re-opening late in the cycle. And a 3 to 1 shot is much different than 10 to 1.
 
people still discussing hillary vs trump. that race is over. trump won it and in doing so caused some contorting on the radical left. in doing so the party has been pushed more and more socialist. that is a losing position.
 
Neve. Gotta say cute response.?
have you ever steamed the Med, done a WesPac or Med cruise?
and the economy would be roaring..
None of it easy and he has done nothing.

In the Trump -GOP juggernaut to screw welfare moms or whoever he is trying to fvck.
GOP zealous but plugs
his Ohio askiss. crowd
,
for me it was doubly hard watching it drinking in the VFW.
Duncan Hunter sent his rabbit across country on tax payer dollars
. He had sexual squirts w 5 know women,2 on his staff using campaign cash.
wine,dine and soil sluts
And he flew his family pet rabbit from San Diego to DC using tax payer money..twice.
Trump knows how to pick em
ive had some time to try and understand what you were posting.

googled the steamed med wespac and med cruise. sailor terminology for being on a ship? ive done more than you could keep up with sailor.

what economy you are looking at but the employment rates are the lowest since the 60's and middle class income is up the past 3 years.

why you brought up the welfare comments but the language used is harsh.
same with the GOP zealous and Ohio crowd comments. wondering if anyone reads this stuff, as it is offensive.

the watching and drinking in the VFW probably explains some of the comments you use.

honestly what do you have against rabbits?

Booker is a vegan. Does that make his arguments about the environment more potent to you? You guys always complain about this re: environment. Flying jets around the world instead of 'setting an example'. Of course, once Greta uses a boat, you personally also found time to criticize her for this too. If you want to call out hypocrisy, have a gander in the mirror too.
no comments from the hypocrites in hollywood or dc. they will go along selling carbon offsets to the uninformed.
Some of those glaciers are 85% gone. I guess it is a good thing that the prediction hasn't come true, but I wouldn't spike the football over the status of glaciers around the world.

actually spartacus has more room to talk if he is trying to do it himself. sorry for you that you can't just recognize hypocrisy. it happens on all sides of arguments.

no one is spiking anything but it is strange how when their predictions are wrong they never seem to have anything to say.
 
Too bad that twitter is banned in Iran. And most of them are banned from coming to the USA.

You underestimate the numbers of animal rights activists. But then so does AOC.

At the time of his inauguration Trump had something like 3,500 legal cases going at the same time. Just because somebody makes an accusation doesn't mean whatever said is true. See Brett Kavanaugh.

Due process isn't a concept you embrace much, is it?

Haley has no lane IMO, unless a woman wins in 2020, which isn't likely.
I think her resume is spectacular.

I don't see the 'shadiness' the way you do. Trump has an enterprise with global reach.. and he put himself out there in public ways most business people don't... from gambling to Television. He attracts a ton of attention and everything that goes along with it. Settling claims generally comes down to a business decision. Cases fought on principle are generally the one's that are the most expensive.

Trump is a stupid person. Trump is a corrupt person.
He's clearly not the former and so far hasn't been proven to be the latter.

I would like a link for the 90% figure
http://www.nytimes.com/newsgraphics/2016/10/18/presidential-forecast-updates/newsletter.html

I remember seeing the NY Time meter (Needle?) in the 95% range for Hillary the morning of the election. Nate Siler was considered a heretic at the time because he was showing something in the mid-70's.

Virtually all the major vote forecasters, including Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight site, The New York Times Upshot and the Princeton Election Consortium, put Mrs. Clinton’s chances of winning in the 70 to 99 percent range.

To this day Democrats have no idea why Hillary lost and have no intention of looking into it. It's why they will lose in November.

are you saying that the iranian people who live in the usa are not important in their political views? That is how what you write reads.

they being hollywood, they are the ones who are hypocritical. just a quick question why are you so argumentative? Do you also have something against rabbits?
