Corporate Dem's Running For DNC Still CLUELESS ! -- LIVE Jimmy Dore Show - Since the established dems are so far removed from reality - Trump not only will likely last the 4 years (not just 2 weeks) - but again I would not see why Trump won't be a two-term president.

So the revolutionary war in 1776 was a bad thing in your opinion?

Must be British.

Edit: Jimmy Dore show? My eyes! OMFG. How boring.

I guess I cannot win them all - but maybe thats good, otherwise where is the fun?

So - Michael Wm. Lebron(Lionel Nation) - Hollywood Misfits and Attention-Starved Celebs Join in Incoherent Calls for Governmental Overthrow - sorry it is fairly lengthy(30min) - but he makes good points. If you oppose Trump, fine just don't let Hollywood hacks in their ivory towers to speak for you, because well, uh, it isn't working.


There is a proper way of opposing Trump - again, he makes good points and this is a much shorter video:

Secular Talk - The Enemies Of Justice Democrats - same thing that Jimmy Dore has been saying - the only problem I have is the name - I think they REALLY need to get rid of this SJW stench that they also have - along with the corporate lackeys in the party - and yes Kyle is also right in this video - the 'defeatist attitude' - dems, REALLY need to clean house (drain the swamp) too - otherwise again, Trump 2020.

The leftists rioting in USA have nothing in common with the Revolutionary War of 1776. IMO their ideologies are more along the lines of Hilter's rise to power in the last century based on their actions and rhetoric.

Can't really argue with that - Antifa and co have pretty much shown their true nature - but will never admit it , nor will the Hollywood celebs. still spouting either a military crackdown (i.e. Martial Law from Rosie O'Donnell) - or Madonna and her idiotic statement about blowing up the White House (then trying to backtrack and 'clarify' what she mean't) - you will never see these celebs publicly disavow and condemn such actions - because that will be a tacit admission on their part that they pretty much supported fascism the very thing they are stating to be opposed to.

Post Trump defends Putin over Russia killings allegations

Well this just knocked me right off my ass:

Quote:
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38872328

US President Donald Trump has defended Vladimir Putin when questioned over allegations of murders carried out by the Russian state.

In an interview with Fox News, he said: "There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country's so innocent?"

I have to give it to him - he is absolutely correct - and this is rather unprecedented for a head of state to say that about their own country. Just, wow!

You mean other than trying to order his departments to ignore a court order, having a personal business that accepts gifts and payments from foreign governments in violation of the constitution, and all of that other 'stuff' for which he is under investigation?

I keep hoping he will grow up and start to grow into the job, but he is putting himself and the country in a very bad spot. If this continues I see no reason why either major party or the rest of the country should continue to put up with his clear lack of ability or willingness to do the job for which he was elected. How disappointing!

Ignoring a court order is not good obviously - and this also goes to the responsibility of his team to try to reel him in a bit at least.

The dems side need to grow up too - and do major house cleaning. I keep hearing from them how they are 'resisting' Trump - yet voting for and confirming Trump's pick like DeVos - yea, *claps slowly* , some resistance there jackass - I guess in this sense their logo is very apt for their party.

I think however you and I are both wrong here, we forgot one major fundamental rule about politics and politicians - politics is a shit show and politicians are the immature players in it - so they will never 'grow up' .

-edit

About money from foreign governments, didn't Clinton accept funds from Morocco, Saudi Arabia? I see dems attacking Trump of the same thing Clinton did, the pot calling the kettle black. Clinton was under investigation too - and it is possible it might be reopened - what if it were if she were the one in office?

This is interesting: H.A. Goodman - TRUMP BATTLES JUDGE WHO STOPPED TRAVEL BAN. Trump Still Controls Social Media Narrative

Kinda rings true to my statement earlier, politics really is just a shit show - and how those on the left seemed to have just let it slip passed them when Obama was doing similar things. Also he is correct as well, the dems have no long term solution - and they are just going to keep shooting themselves in the foot.


Also this:
H.A. Goodman - WIKILEAKS EXPOSES OBAMA AND TRUMP MEDIA HYPOCRISY: Silence On Obama's Interventions. Loud With Trump

-edit

H.A. Goodman - LADY GAGA PLANNING TRUMP SUPER BOWL PROTEST: Don't Be Surprised by Lady Gaga Trump Protest - oh this should be interdasting...

Still good points - particularly on celebs, this guy is on a roll.
