Trump Lies Verified by Own Son
Posted on: 2017-07-11 09:50:55   By: Anonymous
 
Well . . . anyone surprised that there actually was the possibility of the Russian government trying to help The Donald get elected? Son admits to gladly being willing to accept information gathered by Russians that could tarnish The Hillary campaign.

So much for The Donald's statement "No one in my campaign had any contact with any Russian in order to help with my election." Telling lies runs deep in this family.

Doesn't matter who you voted for or why. What matters is that this administration was ready to collude with a foreign anti-American government and its groupies to try and help The Donald elected.

        Well, the Democrats will just have to keep throwing jello on the wall to see if it sticks. Surely they'll find out that someone in the Trump family spit on the sidewalk and broke the law.

        Face it, Russia ran the worst possible candidate for president and she lost. She is the one that sold Plutonium and our children's future to the Russians and she deservedly reaped what she sowed.

        This Russian lady has ties to GPS fusion and was also seen a few days after the meeting with Don Jr with an Obama ambassador to Russia and the man who set up the meeting. This whole thing is a DNC set up in my mind. One of the emails talked of the "Crown Prosecutor" and there is no such thing in Russia.

        Just more Fake News from the Democrat Main Stream Media.

          Re: WHY DIDN'T TRUMP JR. IMMEDIATELY ALERT THE FBI?!?
          Posted on: 2017-07-12 17:23:03   By: Anonymous
           
          Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton joined Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday to discuss allegations that memos from former FBI Director James Comey contained classified information. He also discussed Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s links to Russia and news of Donald Trump, Jr’s meeting with a Russian lawyer during the campaign.
          Said Fitton of the meeting between Trump, Jr. and the Russian lawyer, any notion that’s it’s treason is just “crazy talk.”

          “It’s a political issue,” he continued. “You don’t want to be seen meeting with foreign nationals to talk about your opponent but there are no legal issues.”

          Said Fitton regarding the Comey memos, “he ought to be under legal investigation because of this. You’re not allowed to take government records from a government agency without permission, especially as an outgoing employee and one of the reasons someone in a sensitive position like Comey isn’t supposed to do that is because the material could be sensitive, or classified. And evidently, it was.”

          “There are all sorts of potential crimes Mr. Comey committed, for which he needs to be seriously investigated,” he added.

          Pointing out that special counsel Robert Mueller and Comey are good friends, Fitton continued, Mueller “despite all appearance issues continues to rely on Mr. Comey as a witness and doesn’t think his friendship gets in the way of any investigation, here’s a classic example of why it would.”

          “Frankly,” said Fitton of the investigation, “the whole thing should be called off because of what Comey did.

          It's all just BS Fake News from the Media Wing of The Criminal Democrat Party.
          Sore Losers!

      I was being non-judgemental . . . innocent until proven guilty by a court of law (or Congress in this instance).

      All signs point to 'guilty' by Jr. Jarod, and quite possibly daddy Trump himself.

      The audacity of daddy Trump Tweeting how proud he is is son 'claim clean' is truly amazing. All Jr. did was try to look open because he knew the NYTs was ready to publish the letters.

      Openness because one is caught red-handed with the goods is not honesty. The Trump family continues to prove itself 100% untrustworthy.

      And . . . totally unrelated but . . . where is the wife? Anyone wonder why she is not to be seen or heard from? I would surmise she is unable to publicly support this group of liars so she elects to be as far away from the public eye as possible.

It is a fact that Calaveras County is overwhelmingly politically conservative. It is more important than ever that American citizens get all of the facts concerning the Trump 2016 election campaign and the current administration's alleged collusion with Russia and Vladimir Putin. The Pine Tree is in a delicate spot, relying on ad revenue from our county to pay it's bills. I commend Mr. Hamilton for his decision to publish Donald Trump, Jr's OWN EMAILS AND TWEETS, letting the facts speak for themselves.

I have noticed that the online editions of My Motherlode.com, The Calaveras Enterprise, and The Union Democrat has been woefully remiss in its refusal to report on the aspecta of this disastrous scandal, a la Fox News. From their "reportage", one would think that there were no such scandal.

Keep up the good work, John. My business and I will support you with our advertising dollars.

                The similarities are striking.
                Nixon called the Watergate investigation a "Witch Hunt"

                tRump today called the Russia investigation a "Witch Hunt"

                The question is what hold does tRump have on his supporters?
                He lies constantly, more that crooked Nixon.

                Shouldn't you call tRump Crooked Don "

                If you don't you've been conned by Don the Con.

                Meanwhile all kinds of reverse legislation is being passed in the House.
                Dirty water, air, poisonous chemicals approved, consumer protections erased
                trying to take away health care for 23 million, and raising the cost of premiums for all.

                Wake Up! Resist! Replace tRump. (Pense will be worse)
                This country is going down with the $Billionaires in charge.

The Republicans are saying this is a nothing burger and that anyone would do the same thing to get opposition research. Not true.

In the 2000 election between W and Gore, Gore's campaign was anonymously given a copy of Bush's briefing book for one of the debates. Having that would be a huge advantage for Gore since he would know Bush's talking points, etc. The Gore campaign did not say "I love it." The Gore campaign called the FBI and turned it over to them. They understood that fair elections were more important than personal or party advantage.

I don't recall how the subsequent debate went, but Bush at least knew his briefing book might have been compromised and he could prepare accordingly.

Contrast the above with the behavior of the Trump campaign AND all the lies they have told about it since. Jared Kushner has now had to revise his security clearance documents 3 times to add meetings with Russian operatives that he had "forgotten" until American REAL NEWS organizations made them public and exposed his lie.

If you are a patriot you can not limit your news sources to Fox News and Trump tweets. There is real evil afoot in the Executive branch and you need to open your mind to it.

      So there you have it. They did not have dirt on Hillary. But there is plenty of dirt on Trump and family and their associates. Sadly, many voters bought into Trump's braggadocio style despite all the evidence that he is out for Trump and Trump only. He is all talk and no substance. Just look at how he rolled over to Putin at their meeting. Basically Trump said Putin denied hacking and Trump believed him. And he went so far as to consider a joint anti-hacking program. Cripes, that is so stupid even Trump had to take it back.

      Time to open your eyes and mind. Trump Jr. said they didn't have the goods on Hillary and he got nothing. There is no reason to believe him. He has been lying about this for months. How gullible can you be? Or maybe it's - How gullible do you think we are?

      The actual facts are that after Trump Jr.'s meeting with the Russian operative, Russia began leaking to Wikileaks all kinds of info on the DNC and Clinton's campaign.

      When the police catch a bank robber they do not ask him if he got any money from the bank and take his word that the bank had no money. Banks have money. Russia had the goods. Trump Jr. + Trump son-in-law + Trump campaign manager definitely met with Russian operative. They admit it. Their names (all of them) are on the e-mail chain. Russia subsequently released info that aided Trump. Those dots are damn near touching. If you can't connect them, you are just not paying attention.

Trump's own son stated a few years ago that Russian money was a very large part of the Trump financial portfolio. On the record. Trump has tried for decades to build an exclusive resort hotel in Moscow. His top aides all have financial ties with Russian financiers or the Kremlin. Trump playing to Putin by trying to discredit our nation and NATO at many levels. . Putin wants nothing better than to see the US in turmoil and distanced from our traditional allies. Trump plays to all of that.

    The fears are not unfounded. Trump is rolling over, giving the Kremlin a whole list of things Putin wants- break up NATO, denigrate American legal, political, media, courts, intelligence and security. The US has suddenly under Trumpski become an unpredictable laughing stock- no longer the world leader. Now, Putin and China expect to take the role and call the shots. Our allies are justifiable afraid that the US, under Trump will no longer stand up for the world's democracies.

The picture is becoming clearer. In 2015 US and European intelligence assets began picking up a lot of Russian communications naming close associates of Trump. They could not figure out why. Then in 2016 they warned that Russian money was being funneled into the US but they could not figure where it was going. During that time Trumps top associates were having "business" trips to Russia. In early 2016, US intelligence agencies warned that the Kremlin was engaged in hacking US political and government election sites, they were paying for dissemination of false information, and creating disparaging comments about Clinton on social media.. Soon Trump was announcing really big news against Clinton.. He did this within hours of Don JR meeting with the Kremlins attorney. It is becoming clear that the Kremlin created the impetus for Trump to run and supported him by cyber attacks, coordinating voter information and advice on tactics, funneling money into social media and other advertising that could not be tracked. If you believe this is pure fantasy, then you underestimate the Kremlin. They had nothing to loose by this and everything to gain. It appears from Trump's solicitous attitude toward Putin and the Kremlin that the Russians have succeeded in their goal of crippling the US, even beyond their wildest dreams. Trump and company have been played bigly and the free world will suffer for it.

Democracy vs. American Racism
Posted on: 2017-07-13 07:37:32   By: Anonymous
 
The core of all this is the sickening fact that a very large percentage of Republicans feel smugly justified in their support of Trump because there was a "n*gger" in the White House for 8 years.

I wish this weren't true, but it is.

Comb through the above posts and the racism (and misogyny) just leap out at you. To the vast bulk of Trump voters, the means clearly justifies the ends. They don't care about gigantic tax cuts for the rich. They don't care about Russian collusion. They don't care that our precious democracy has been undermined by the unfettered greed of the family and associates of a billionaire. They don't care about the deportation of honorably discharged veterans, who were promised American citizenship. They don't care that the new normal is being persecuted for ones' religion. They don't care that our president's tweets to THE ENTIRE WORLD are low brow, mendacious, and petty.

They just don't care.

Got that n*gger and his gorilla mama out of the White House, and that's all that matters.

Trump is like a post turtle. If you see a turtle sitting on top of a fence post you have no idea how it got there, but you are real sure it doesn't belong there.

        Trump is a low life, low character , cheating, loud mouth, vulgar, vain, , ignorant, flip flopping, sorry excuse for a president.

        Trump is so stupid he can't remember what he said for daya to day, or if he does, he just lies.

        Trump is starting to act like he has dementia.

        And anyone with hair like that has to be a wierdo, to even keep it like that.
