Re: Convinced yet?

WE THE PEOPLE elected Trump. Understand, Edward? No, Blessed, we didn't. The majority of us rejected him. You know that. It's why you started out by reminding me that the Electoral College exists and then trying to handwave away a major defeat in the popular election by making the groundless claim ...

Re: Convinced yet?

When it his coup level tensions, there's something wrong. "Russia gate" and the like, isn't merely criticising or simply creating opposition... what is going, I wouldn't be surprised if Dems try to mount and attempt an all out coup. I think they realize that they can't beat Trump in an election, so...

Re: Convinced yet?

No, but if I ask them then they've been asked. Plus it's fun to make Stu look bad by asking reasonable questions that he, as an unreasonable person with unreasonable views, cannot reasonably answer.

Re: Convinced yet?

Stu, it's easy to call me names and dismiss what I say because I said it. It's a lot harder to grow a pair and take a crack at answering difficult questions. Let's see if you're up to it. 1) If it's not authoritarian to call for Trump's election opponents, political rivals, and critics in the media ...

Re: Convinced yet?

So Mick Mulvaney went on TV and flat out said that Trump withheld aid money that Congress allocated for Ukraine because he wanted the Ukrainians to investigate the ridiculous conspiracy theory that for some reason Hillary Clinton's email servers are in the Ukraine. He later claimed that his comments...

Re: Here are some quotes. Anyone with thoughts to share?

The way I remember things Flake's willingness to criticize Trump coincided with his decision not to seek reelection. It's easy to take the high road when you've got no skin in the game. Justin Amash is a good example of political courage, but I haven't seen anything like that from any Senate Republi...

Re: Here are some quotes. Anyone with thoughts to share?

I've read up on the World Council of Arameans, and they seem to have a point, at least at a glance. I'm not going to pretend to be well versed on the matter. Having said that, I've also read up a bit on Kurdish history. Frankly, I'm not seeing how the Kurds are any different from the Arameans, the Z...

Re: Here are some quotes. Anyone with thoughts to share?

Especially now, Trump is in no position to be pursuing policies in opposition to his conservative base - particularly in the Senate. Trump's base isn't really conservative though. The diehard Trumpers are right wing populists. I doubt that many dedicated members the MAGA crowd will really care abou...

Here are some quotes. Anyone with thoughts to share?

They didn’t help us with Normandy. A bad situation in Northeast Syria is about to get much worse. Sources tell me that US officials have just informed the Syrian Kurds that Turkey is likely to attack on air and ground in next 24 hours. The US will do nothing. Targets are Tal Abyad and Ras al Ayn. I...

Re: Convinced yet?

Dishonest, K. I'm very critical of Trump, but I don't call him and his supporters fascist for every little thing. That said, "fascist" is probably the wrong word. It's too specific. Trump borrows heavily from Joseph Goebbels' playbook, but Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Noriega, Hussein, Gaddafi, Pinochet, Duv...

Re: Convinced yet?

And I did vote for Trump, so I must be a facist and Nazi. That's really dishonest, Rick. You know that that's not what I said and not what I meant. Again, if it's not fascistic to call for Trump's election opponents, political rivals, and critics in the media to be rounded up and imprisoned for opp...

Re: Convinced yet?

Your posts are making ablecainsbrother's posts seem reasonable by comparison. Yet again, what did I say that wasn't true? Trump sought foreign help investigating the Bidens? That's 100% true. There's no evidence to support Trump's claims about the Bidens? That's 100% true. There's a lot of evidence...

Re: Convinced yet?

None of this matters except for the fact it's intended to distract Trump from accomplishing what he was elected by WE THE PEOPLE to do. The majority of US THE PEOPLE didn't vote for him, don't want him, and passionately disagree with the things that he's accomplished "for us." It's all just a bunch...

Re: Convinced yet?

Look, there is a LOT we don't yet know - so, I'd wait a bit before becoming so sure of anything right now. We're all sure that Trump pushed the President of Ukraine to investigate Biden. It's on tape and he's not even denying it anymore. Nobody is claiming to be sure that Trump withheld military ai...
