A Blunder of Epic Proportions

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 7/15/2019 5:00:37 AM

Regular readers know that I am a fan of President Trump, and more often than not, a fan of his use of social media. But today he committed the worst unforced error of his presidency, one that we will hear about from the Democrats from now until November 2020. This morning the president tweeted about “‘Progressive’ Democratic Congresswomen”: [Tweet]I assume Trump is talking about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad,” and I share his low opinion of those ill-informed leftists. And no doubt he had in mind Ilhan Omar when he referred to “countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe,” etc. His description certainly applies to Somalia.

It's not a blunder when most Americans agrees with Trump... As usual, the pearl clutchers continue to clutch their pearls and adjust their panties... meanwhile Trump bulls ahead with his next MAGA agenda.

I think this is a calculated move. This 'Squad' needs to be completely outed for the pack of incompetent America-bashers that they are. And 'The Squad' needs to figure out whether they are representing citizens of the United States or the disease-ridden peasants from everywhere else.

Obvious Hinderaker is no strategist. The President is out-Alinskying (or Sun Tzuing) his enemy. He has defined them in his terms and every utterance they make will cement this definition. It forced Pelousy et al to jump to the defense of these Anti-Americans causing them to get stuck to the "tar babies".

"Epic Proportions"? Can we retire that phrase? It has become so trite it has no meaning. Its just something we say without thinking. Also, FTA: "...the single stupidest act of Trump’s presidency." If this is the stupidest thing he has done in two years, he is doing far better than most of us. While I agree that some of his actions make me cringe, I try to keep in mind that he is a billionaire married to a gorgeous super model, and is president. I'm just some guy. I suspect his instincts are quite a bit better than mine.

Not a blunder at all. Definitely a stable genius move. Trump just handed Pelosi and the Democrat leadership a live grenade. Pelosi can either save herself and the moderates by tossing the grenade to AOC, Omar, and the rest of the Squad and say, "here, ladies, I believe this is for you." Or, Pelosi can come to the Squad's defense, thereby putting the America-haters in charge of the Democrat party and annihilating the moderates. So far, it looks like Pelosi is choosing the latter. Kaboom. Trump's tweet is chock full 'o aftershocks and will elicit days full of wall-to-wall coverage. Lots of people will be hearing about the Squad for the first time and they're not going to like what these America-hating witches have been saying.

These women grew up and were influenced by the unassimilated culture of their parents. They may citizens of the US but they seem to be incapable of identifying with it. This is was comes from allowing large numbers of economic immigrants to go to school and function in society without even learning how to speak English or learn anything of our culture.

The fact that Trump is on the same page as most Americans is the REASON he was elected. He sees things the way we do. He has common sense. And what he said is exactly what I, and many others, have said many times. If you don't like the way we do things here, go back where you came from. Don't try to change our country into your former country! Trump just won thousands more voters because of what he said!

No it is not! ENOHGH! No, they aren't a special class of politician that is immune from the same criticism and debate as everyone else. What PDJT has done is exactly how we end that self-defeating nonsense. Nothing PDJT said was about race. Notice how they don't assume their attacks on Trump aren't racially motivated. We will always lose if all they have to do is elect only minority Democrats and declare that everything we say in opposition is racist. Enough of this!

No, no. This is a rare blunder from Hinderaker, who is usually far more astute than this. By siding (or appearing to) with Pelosi against her socialist challengers, our witty president is causing more mayhem within Organized Crime(D) while tempting the Enemedia to further idolize the malignant young crazies. Brilliant!

A blunder? Hardly. The Democrats are now forced to defend these women and their disgusting anti-American rhetoric. They are offensive and Pelosi knows it. Being ‘of color’ does not exempt you from criticism. Trump has also now put the CBC into a real quandary. Do they defend these creatures and let themselves be primaried or just keep their mouths firmly shut? Well done Mr. President.

It was a blunder, but Trump's opposition has over played its hand so often that it is only a minor speed bump of a blunder. In 2016, this would have bothered me, but the media has so blown everything Trump has said out of proportion that I realize this was merely a poor choice of phrasing, not a demonstration of racism.

Let's face it: Islam is a culture of 7th century barbarism. The cult or as some may claim, the "religion" of Islam is stuck in that 7th century and until it rids itself of practices that everyone, EVERYONE in the civilized world see as barbaric, good luck wanting more respect. Furthermore DJT didn't merely say go back to your country. Read the full text with its context. He more or less said go back to your home countries that you uphold with such distinction and fix the broken crap that governs such countries, and have a greater love and respect for this country!

But the over-reaction to this is utterly predictable. Maybe that's why he did it John. Google "Atomic Situp" and you'll see the fun you're missing as the president continues to use this wonderful tactic against his enemies who line up over and over again, every single time to prove to each other just who can do the best atomic situp. So far, Jim Acosta holds the record. However, John, you might want to step out of the atomic situp line unless you're from Rio Linda.

Strange how the media picks and chooses what to get hysterical over? They are so used to fake news that they can’t recognize a true statement when they see it. The Dems are all emotions but no logic. I remember an old saying that “throw a stone into a pack of dogs, and the one that yelps is the one that got hit!” In this case, the ones who complain about his tweet are likely the people that statement is true about.

I don't think it is an error at all. First: most Americans wish Omar would be returned to Somalia for her obvious and numerous anti American, Jew hating remarks. She doesn't believe in the Constitution of the United States of America. She hates non m....ms. She believes in sharia law. She her home. Trump's tweet is not a mistake. He does little or nothing by mistake in the political realm. I want all the dems...every damn one of them to be sent home. BACK to their districts in CA, NY, and cities: SF, LA, Austin, Houston, Chicago, NYC, where ever they came from....send them back in 2020....back to where they belong, in the dark, dangerous, corrupt trash cans they came out of.

Now I see the confusion. The three third world, America hating, brainless, idiot mouthpieces act and talk like they are from one of those countries that are pits of corruption, failure, intolerance and incompetence so one could easily assume that they were born there. It's up to the voters to decide who is the American and who isn't. The fact that a solidly Somalian population in the twin cities elected Omar is our own fault for allowing a tribe of savages to take over an entire voting district and destroy it when they should be thanking us for saving them from rape, murder and torture and giving them a home in the best country in the world. As for AOC and the Palestinian garbage mouth, every word out of their mouths is empty, stupid, vulgar and ridiculous. No matter where they were born, they are not Americans. The Chakrabarti clown who controls AOC needs to be in jail.

Most of us absolutely understand and agree with Trump. We really don't care if your ancestors came on the Mayflower. If you now hate America there is an option: planes leave every hour... get on one and don't come back. When people like Obama or Ohmer or Tlaib and Cortez and Sanders want to "fundamentally change" this nation, I am on alert. Our fundamentals are not the problem but instead our problem is that we have strayed from the Constitution. My goodness we have Ruth Buzzi Ginsberg on the Supreme Court telling us she would never tell a new nation to model after our Constitution. That 's not a problem?? Yes, it most certainly is. You can go, too, Ruthie.

I'm personally amazed as just "smart" some people are ... and incredibly dumb in other areas. People with all sorts of degrees from very expensive and historic colleges don't get Trump's playing 3-D chess --- a bigger picture. What looks like a stupid move on chess board number one is brilliant over on chess board number 3! The mistake every amateur makes is trying to win the game by concentrating on just the one board where all the action is (one dimension) --- or seems to be . Meanwhile the pro is checkmating you over on board number 3!

How dare President Trump use such common language to cut to the bone of leftist America hating insanity. Trump used language each and every one of us use on a daily basis. We do not need some over-educated idiot linguistic shredder to pick it apart and "explain" it all to us. We understood the message perfectly and precisely!

Regardless, it had the desired effect. The left's hair is on fire for the millionth time. Trump could have said it better, but he got his message across. These people hate America. They are either Commies or Sharia. They hate the country so much, they want to change it into something that the overwhelming majority of Americans would disagree with. Most American citizens LOVE AMERICA. If you hate America, leave. Live in a Commie country or a Sharia country for a few years and see if you still like it. If you like it, stay there. If you hate it, good luck returning. These countries won't let you leave seeing as they are run as prisons.

I know some on the right prefer the polished diplomats and politicians. Perhaps they are less threatening? I don’t know. But, if this colossal blunder of “epic proportions” is the “stupidest” (which is a stupid choice of words) thing Trump does, I’ll take my President rare, thanks very much.

A Somalian refugee with a turban now leads the Democratic Party. A Palestinian Arab influences foreign policy. A Puerto Rican barmaid who grew up here is perfectly white and calls herself colored and is run by an Indian Communist (Charabaki?). They do not love America.

So now calling out people (congresspeople!) who habitually make blatantly anti-American statements is a "blunder"? I don't think so. It's way past time that someone did it. And all the better that it's our President, whose sworn duty is to protect this country. This false, pretentious politeness that somehow has become a requirement for any conservative needs to be replaced with blunt and honest responses so such anti-American rhetoric doesn't become an accepted behavior.

This is just another in a series of President Trump’s moves to “out” the leftist and liberal Democrats on their current “open borders” stance in which they have announced that they essentially support allowing anyone in the world, without numerical limits, who are mostly all poor, uneducated, and socialist minded foreign people be allowed to gain entry to the USA, stay here as they wish, be provided all sorts of government provided social welfare benefits and services, including government provided healthcare services, and no longer be subject to any sort of legal consequences as a result of not having any sort of legal immigration status in the USA. After Barack Obama was elected, he became known as the “deporter in chief” with his Administration during his first term said to have effected the deportation of three million illegal aliens. Following that, in cahoots with the special interests, who have always supported mass uncontrolled illegal immigration Obama “woke” and abruptly changed his policies to address illegal immigration into a “catch and release” mode, designed to allow as many illegal aliens as possible to flood into the USA. Then came Obama’s DACA (Dreamer) amnesty for young illegal aliens essentially up to age 35 who claimed to have entered the USA unlawfully before age 16, that allowed them to stay in the USA that has been expanded incrementally to where it now allows an entire household residing with any so-called “Dreamer” illegal aliens to also stay in the USA. All that was sure to encourage many millions of intending illegal aliens around the world to travel to the borderline and seek to unlawfully gain entry to the USA. We see that now along the borderline. Chances are there are now 22 million or more illegal aliens into the USA with tens of thousands of new intending illegal aliens gaining entry to the USA each month. The long-term leftist and liberal Democrat plan is to keep the borderline insecure, grant the massive illegal alien population permanent amnesty and eventually morph them into duel nationals with USA voting rights, knowing that the vast majority of poor, uneducated, and socialist minded illegal aliens would then become natural future Democrat socialist voters, who through their potential vast numbers, would be able to permanently change the voter demographics in the country in enough areas and States to overwhelm the Republican “Deplorable” vote, thus keeping the leftist and liberal Democrats in perpetual political power in the Congress, and the White House, resulting in the wimpy Republicans spiraling into political oblivion. Resulting in the demographics of the country then continuing to be changed through unlimited immigration, both illegal and legal, into a minority-majority country, and ultimately into a socialist utopia. Obama let that cat out of the bag, as he opined that he had been elected President about 30 years to soon to be able to politically engineer and guide such an expected huge potential ethnic, racial, and politically based demographic change throughout the country.

To paraphrase Josh Holmes on yesterday's "Fox News Sunday," PDT is a master at getting his opponents to hate him so badly they are instantly willing to take up positions that many Americans find abhorrent and anti-American. This was yet another example of PDT "living rent free" in the heads of liberals, and then getting them to side with some young socialist punks who hate this country. The reaction by the left and the media feeds Americans' growing impression that democrats and liberals are willing to say/be offended by anything to cure their TDS. Epic "brilliance," if you ask me.

John sees this as a blunder because he is thinking as a careful, cautious strategist. That is how Karl Rove operated, always calculating the odds. People like this put their money into safe CDs getting .25% interest and losing out to the volatile (scary) but better performing stock market. Trump is like the stock market. He is looking for growth, not fake safety. The Left is going to explode many time before the election. They HAVE to. If events don't lead them to it, they will make stuff up. THAT lesson should be well recognized given the Russian conspiracy. While weakened, the people that carried out that assault are still around. So Trump is calling out the anti American Congresswomen who happen to be women of color. This is a NECESSARY action. The Left and their media have attempted to create a bubble around people of color and illegal immigrants that shield them from the normal evaluation of behavior and character. Certain Blacks, who are clearly thugs, commit thuggish or criminal acts and the Left/media leaps to their defence because they are Black. They are excused because they are Black. Illegal immigrants are criminals who have "broken into" the Country, just as if someone had broken into your house. They are supposed to be excused because they are immigrants. This is RACISM, policy based on race. People who behave as criminals ARE criminals no matter their race. People who behave as anti American ARE anti American no matter their race. When Congresspersons speak against our great Country they should be held accountable no matter their race. Trump has had great success confronting the political correctness of the media. The majority of people polled think there is too much political correctness in this Country. This "squad" of women are poor representatives of our Country no matter their gender or race. Trump has pointed that out. The Left/media will go nuts. They ALWAYS go nuts. Doing things to avoid the media going nuts is pointless and counterproductive to a conservative agenda that will ALWAYS be opposed, maniacally, by the Left. It's time for some heavy lifting. Or do you want to park your money in CDs to seek safe shelter.

Back when Trump was running for president, think of all the "fatal blunders" he made. Criticizing St. John McCain, for example. Each time I thought he was done and of course I was wrong. The rules have changed, Trump identified this (and perhaps moved it along as well). By old standards this round of tweets is beyond the pale, but those standards don't apply. Omar doesn't say "I came here, I became a citizen and I want to help make it better", she comes here and tells us we are fundamentally corrupt. We don't like it and we're tired of not being able to say it. Trump says it.

After just witnessing four female traitors extoriate our President on TV, yes he has blundered. He should have closed all borders the day he took office and begun deporting all illegals and the two muslim women who insulted him and the United States. Had they attempted to even speak in their muslim countries, their heads would still be rolling down the pavement.

To say that the Democrats are obsessed with race these days is the equivalent of saying the sky is blue. I'm a racist. You're a racist. Donald Trump's a racist. Nancy Pelosi was a racist until she attacked Trump for racism. Your neighbor's a racist. Your insurance broker's a racist. Your dentist's a racist as well as your periodontist. All white males are racist. Some white females are racists, especially those married to white males. Everywhere a racist. Never mind that many of those people have no history of racism.

It’s déjà vu all over again. President Trump has given the hanging party a first-rate piece of rope to use against him. His tweet will not live in infamy, but his cringe-worthy “go back” language rhymes with many of his earlier self-inflicted mistakes. The pattern was established during the 2016 campaign and he has been faithful to it many times since taking office. It always seems to happen when things are going pretty well. So it was Sunday, with Democrats engulfed in a vicious civil war and Trump’s poll numbers rising against the 2020 candidates as the public begins to realize how far left they are goin

An open letter to Barack Obama: Mr. President, it is time. You must speak. Your country needs you. Eleven summers ago, as you accepted the Democratic nomination for president, you announced: “Tonight, I say to the people of America, to Democrats and Republicans and independents across this great land: Enough. This moment — this election — is our chance to keep, in the 21st century, the American promise alive.” Of course, we knew then that our nation had deep political differences, and would continue to. Only the most naive among us would have expected the election of the first African American president to come about with no backlash. But would anyone have anticipated

Watching the four-woman “squad” respond to President Trump’s already famous Tweets urging “progressive” Democrats to “go back” to their “original countries,” one wonders why Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts would want to be lumped in with the other three. Pressley’s remarks were standard-issue liberal, but restrained and dignified in the face of Trump's out-of-bounds comments. The other three Democrats handled the situation very differently, combining mendacity, smears, and radicalism in ways with which Pressley should not want to be associated. Pressley never even used the words “racist” or “racism.” Using the words correctly, she accused Trump of making remarks that were “xenophobic and bigoted.”

There will be no media awards for Al Roker or the Washington Post in recognition of their coverage of Hurricane Barry. At least if the people living in New Orleans have a say in the matter. The weekend weather event, fortunately, was nowhere nearly as bad as was predicted in some media accounts. That’s a good thing. The bad thing, though, is the over-hyped media coverage of Tropical Storm Barry that briefly became Hurricane Barry ( a Category 1 storm) before it returned to being a tropical storm. Barry made landfall Saturday at Intracoastal City, about 160 miles west of New Orleans. Unfortunately, to read or listen

Mathematician and World War II codebreaker, Alan Turing, has been honored by the Bank of England as the new face of the 50 pound note. Turing, who died at 41 in 1952, was best known for helping to defeat Nazi Germany by cracking their codes at Bletchley Park, the top-secret facility in the U.K. known as the “Home of the Codebreakers.” Despite his tremendous contributions to computer science and his role in the war effort, Turing was later arrested and charged under a British law that criminalized homosexuality.

After Democrat lawmakers and commentators spent months hammering the Trump administration for supposedly delaying the release of a $20 bill featuring abolitionist Harriet Tubman, several officials appointed by President Barack Obama have reportedly admitted that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has followed the Obama timeline for producing the new currency. The Obama administration said 2016 that it wanted to remove Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill and replace him with Tubman, who helped free slaves through the Underground Railroad, and that the bills would be ready in 2020.

PHILADELPHIA — On Wednesday, while the 4,000-odd attendees of the annual Netroots Nation conference were still en route to their hotels, dozens of protesters marched across the center of city to Joe Biden's newly opened campaign headquarters. Members of Movimiento Cosecha occupied the lobby, some of them standing behind a banner (BIDEN: WE HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN 3 MILLION DEPORTATIONS) and some speaking through a bullhorn. “We can't forget Obama's legacy,” said Florida-based immigrant rights activist Catalina Santiago, who was born in Mexico. “He promised the immigrant community papers, an ability to have a dignified life. Yet eight years later, he deported 3 million people, and Biden was complicit in that.”

This fall, Walmart will launch a service that will let a delivery worker unlock a house with an app and then stock its refrigerator with food, all monitored by a live camera on the worker’s chest. It all sounds too good to be true. And maybe it is. Before we plunge headlong into the Brave New World of smart homes, let’s pause and consider potential bugs in the system.

The strains of almost eighteen years of continuous war, Obama’s massive budget cuts, and a tide of damaging politics have eroded critical parts of our military. What has held together, until last week, was the most critical element: the trust that must exist between the civilian leadership and the military of all ranks. A huge blow to that trust has just occurred on Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer’s watch. Another failure of leadership, both similar and different, is taking place about the nomination of Gen. John Hyten, Commander of U.S. Strategic Command, to be the next vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. On May 24, the Senate

Many of the Beto O’Rourke faithful in Texas, people who supported him during his 2018 Senate race, have now reached the same conclusion: Beto should drop out of the presidential race. In a Quinnipiac poll from early June, 60 percent of Texas Democrats said they preferred that O’Rourke suspend his presidential campaign and run against Senator John Cornyn instead. Just 27 percent said they’d rather he continue his presidential bid. Since then, his national poll numbers have dropped significantly—one recent poll of New Hampshire voters found that O’Rourke had 0.0 percent support in the state.
