NEW YORK - Support for U.S. President Donald Trump increased slightly among Republicans after he lashed out on Twitter over the weekend in a racially charged attack on four minority Democratic congresswomen, a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll shows. The national survey, conducted on Monday and Tuesday after Trump told the lawmakers they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” showed his net approval among members of his Republican Party rose by 5 percentage points to 72%, compared with a similar poll that ran last week.

Comments:

Does that mean all Reps are racist or just like hearing the truth?

Does the GOP understand that getting the Enemy of the People (and other Dim leadership) to expose themselves by rallying behind 4 Jew-hating, USA-hating, freedom-hating, Deplorable-hating, terrorist-sympathizing disturbed(D) crackpots(D) is political theater master level Obi Wan? Take notes, GOP.

A whole lot of people understand what racism is. And it ain't what the President offered. In fact, it is what the 4 dimwitted gals offer.

Anyone who sees race in what the President tweeted is projecting their own "racist" BS onto what he said. I don't recall reading anything about anyone's race in those tweets.

Here was his tweet. Don Surber didn’t think it was racist. Judge for yourselves: 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. https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2019/07/flipping-minnesota.html

Chris Kahn is a stinking liar. There was absolutely, positively, nothing racially charged about Trumps tweets. There was nothing racial whatsoever in them. This, THIS is how these bastages set up these labels such as racist, etc. against anyone who disagrees with them. They casually toss the term out into the conversation and when no one pushes back it becomes part and parcel of the standard dialogue about that person. So it's official now: Donald Trump is a bona fide racist of the worst type and is therefore unfit for office. Ya know, the fact that the left so completely controls the language used in our national discussion, such as it is, tells me this is going to be a long, long war. And make no mistake about it, we are in the middle of an out and out war for the soul of this country. Personally, I think it's time to start going Argentina.

It wasn't about race. It was about the President speaking up and giving those of us that are sick and tired of this country being dumped on and demonized by the left a voice. We have a fighter in the White House....something quite honestly republicans are not used to, We love our President and his determination to slap back the leftists dismantling of this country. President Trump and his family are in my prayers daily.

The headline of the House vote on a resolution to impeach President Trump was that lawmakers rejected it by an overwhelming 332-95 margin. But the story was something else: 95 Democrats vote to impeach the president, not for any alleged high crime or misdemeanor, but for causing "harm to the society" of the United States. The vote, in other words, showed that 95 Democrats will vote to impeach the president for anything. For them, there is no need to accuse Trump of a high crime or misdemeanor involving Russia, or obstruction of justice, or campaign finance violations, or any other arguably impeachable activity.

But even as it shed new light on Halper’s work, the report left unanswered central questions about his Trump-Russia role and raised new ones about the circuitous winds on which Washington dollars manage to fly out the window. In the months leading up to the 2016 election, Halper famously approached and questioned – sometimes amiably, sometimes aggressively --

A point has yet to be made about the four American socialist Democratic congresswomen whom President Trump is advising to go back to the places they came from. It’s not just that three of them were born in America. It’s that while Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Omar Ilhan, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley may change America, the likelihood is that America will change them even more. And it has a way of changing all of us for the better. It’s not that we agree with the Squad’s socialist sentiments. We prefer the kind of pro-growth, laissez-faire capitalism of which Mr. Trump is a tribune.

In a way, I can’t blame those who grew up in the Cold War for being pessimistic about the future. We lived then in an age of potential nuclear annihilation and Hollywood made sure that we knew about what would happen if it occurred. The studios rolled out film after film of post-apocalyptic dystopian worlds from Planet of the Apes to Soylent Green. These films were usually shot in vast desert areas in foreign countries because the truth is that America is still very, very beautiful.

America is a providential nation, chosen by God always to be a beacon of freedom and hope. In the freedom and opportunity it offers its citizens and in the example it offers to other nations, America is that "city upon a hill" envisioned by John Winthrop, first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. By that, he meant that the pilgrim colony in New England, standing proudly as if on a hill, would be a model of goodness and right living for all to see. America is still that city upon a hill, but our future is less certain.

In 1958 Eugene Burdick and William Lederer published The Ugly American. The book was written to expose the failure of U.S. diplomatic personnel in Southeast Asia. The American diplomatic corps were boorishly indifferent to local language, customs, and culture. The book caused quite a stir in the waning days of Eisenhower’s administration, and Kennedy used it as springboard to launching the Peace Corps.(snip). A mysterious change seems to come over Americans when they go to a foreign land. They isolate themselves socially. They live pretentiously. They are loud and ostentatious."

There have now been five national polls since the first Democratic presidential primary debate. Together, the surveys, conducted by ABC News/Washington Post, Quinnipiac, CNN, The Hill/Harris, and Politico/Morning Consult, show the debate has shaken up the race. The field has separated into three clearly definable tiers, all atop a large group at the bottom made up of candidates with virtually no support. Within the first tier -- Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren -- the leaders' positions are rapidly shifting. Since the debate, only one of the four -- Harris -- is up, while Biden, Sanders, and Warren are down.

The editorial board recounted numerous rhetorical moments AOC carried out (emphasis mine): Rep.

Families going out with their dogs, which are carefully groomed, looking extremely healthy and happy. The pet is a real member of the family. His needs are as important to his owners as their own.

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
