Trump Tweets Ignite Firestorm

The three surest ways to get Americans shouting at each other are: A controversial call in a playoff game watched by millions; bringing up sensitive political issues at the Thanksgiving dinner table after everyone spent the day traveling, drinking, or both; or President Trump hitting Twitter on a Sunday morning. No doubt you saw Trump's latest tweetstorm, in which he said it is "interesting to see 'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously

Comments:

I don't know whether to be amused or alarmed--not at Trump, but at his prissy right of center critics. So what if his intemperate tweets cause fainting spells in certain supposedly conservative uptightparlors? Seems to me he has a strategy of drawing the loony Left out of its protective shell so they're revealed as the nonproductive moonbats they are and always have been. Break out the smelling salts.

Much #NeverTrump ado over nothing: President Trump tweeted, "So interesting to see 'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. "Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!" He did not mention anyone's race or religion. He said go back, but he followed it up with, "Then come back and show us how it is done." The press cherry-picked the text for scary quotes. https://www.lucianne.com/2019/07/15/trump_tweets_ignite_firestormbr_-_on_the_right_10013.html

These are the same squishes that have been doing the go along/get along, give em' everything they want for the last 40-50 years. I for one am tired of turning the other cheek when being called a Nazi. Really, you want to implicate me in the murder of millions? Because I revere the Constitution and want a border? Finally there is someone who doesn't run from his own shadow when these socialists/communists (who's ideology killed 10's of millions) accuse him of the very things they are doing. Bravo Mr Trump. Bravo

#2 has it. When the Dems begin to play nice and stop calling everybody "Nazi", then we 'll play nice. They go first. In the past, our Uniparty Republican squishes just took it without saying anything. Of course, the Repubs have to say something and clutch their pearls - they all got a lot of airtime, no? PDJT is the Master troll; Pelosi is defending the America-haters, who are out to get her. He's actually driven them together - so far Left Ol' Nancy can't see the Center, anymore. The mask is off for all to see! The Squad cannot and will not be contained!

Let's see, Trump's been called Hitler, Stalin, a Nazi, a rapist, a motherfu***r, a hater, stupid, ignorant, what else, what did I leave out? Yet, not one word of support from the GOPe. I hope Trump ignores every GOPe member of Congress next year when it comes to campaigning. Let them do it on their own.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was temporarily banned from speaking on the floor of the House on Tuesday after the House parliamentarian ruled that she violated House rules. While offering comments about a resolution set to condemn Trump's comments earlier this week regarding four far-left congresswomen (aka "the Squad"), Pelosi said that everyone "should join us in condemning the president's racist tweets." According to House rules, one cannot refer to the president as “having made a bigoted or racist statement.” [Tweets] The House parliamentarian rebuked the Speaker for violating rules forbidding personal attacks on the House floor against the president.

For the first time in my life, I did not root for an American team. Whatever the sport, I have always rooted American. But if those who called into my radio show were representative of my audience, many millions of Americans made the same sad choice. It takes a lot for people like me not to root for an American team. But Megan Rapinoe, the foul-mouthed star of the team, and her fellow players made it possible. The U.S. women's team disgraced itself. Either its members were cowed into submission by Rapinoe or they agreed (or, at least, never disagreed) with her attacks on the president,

The Weld 2020 campaign site features an old photo and raw video of his campaign announcement. It’s early July and the latest update on the site is from the beginning of May. That’s incompetence as usual in the hopeless campaign by the former Massachusetts governor which is being run by his stepson. The Never Trumper competing against President Trump for the 2020 GOP nomination claimed back in March that he could “start Monday in the Oval Office.” Three months later, he barely has a website. Back then, Weld dismissed talk of Trump’s popularity by saying that, “six months is forever in national politics”. That’s true. But no amount of forevers would allow

With his usual flair for hyperbole and indifference to factual details, Donald Trump last week tweet-blasted the so-called “Squad” of female freshman Congressmen “of color” for slandering America as racist, sexist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, and numerous other empty epithets. Though Trump was careless for suggesting, “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came”––since only one, Ilhan Omar, was born abroad––his sentiment is still valid, and has been shared for decades by millions of Americans angry over their homeland being demonized by immigrants and fellow citizens alike.
An accusation in search of an argument 2 replies

We’ve commented before on the shoddy and hyper-partisan writing of Margaret Sullivan, a media critic for the Washington Post. Among other shortcomings, Sullivan seems incapable of making anything resembling an argument. Today, Sullivan defends the practice in news stories of labeling President Trump’s utterances “racist.” She calls this a “service to the truth” (quotation from headline in paper edition). But one searches Sullivan’s column in vain for an argument in support of her claim that Trump’s comment about the four congressional rads (or anything else Trump has ever said) is racist. Arguments aren’t Sullivan’s thing. Name-calling is.

FLAGLER COUNTY, Fl. — A routine traffic stop leads to the arrest of a known drug dealer in Florida. According to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy pulled Derick McKay over for speeding on July 11. When he started talking to McKay, he noticed that he seemed nervous and that there was a smell of marijuana. McKay claimed he didn’t have anything illegal in his custody, but that turned out to be a lie. After he was brought to jail for driving on a suspended license, he confessed to hiding narcotics in his buttocks. He then proceeded to remove more than a dozen small baggies.

"West Bank grows calmer as pocketbook issues take priority of protests" is the headline of a New York Times story today. It seems that the Palestinian jihadists of the old intifadas are more concerned about making a living than killing Israelis.

As we reported yesterday, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded to be sworn in before giving testimony about what she saw when she visited border detention facilities. It was such an "unusual" request that even Democratic Chairman Elijah Cummings thought it slightly over the top. What's more, a congresswoman (or anyone else for that matter) testifying before a House Committee doesn't have to be sworn in; it's already illegal to lie in those circumstances. There's only one reason why AOC wanted to take the oath: for dramatic effect. This wasn't meant to help anyone else; it was merely to raise her own profile. Sad. Pathetic. Ridiculous.

ST. PETERSBURG – Jim Bouton, pitcher, author, all-time baseball rebel, died Wednesday. He was 80. My bookshelves contain his masterpiece, between the Baseball Encyclopedia and The Boys of Summer, Roger Kahn’s moving elegy to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Ball Four. Bouton’s tell-all baseball memoir, published in 1970, remains the most important sports book ever written. It was one reason why I wanted to become a writer.

Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President’s xenophobic tweets,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to House Democrats.“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Pelosi added. “Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy

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.

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. But a current "high-ranking government official" appointed by Obama, as well as a former official, confirmed to The Washington Post
