Why Trump must acknowledge
that he went too far this time

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

Goodman is wrong.. a lot of everyday Americans think just like the President..."If you don't like life in the United States, you are free to leave."

#1, #2, you guys NAILED it! None of any of us would have ever heard of any of these wet-behind-the-ears congresscritters except that the anti-American leftist Media relishes taking every stupid, nasty thing that falls out of these nasty women's mouths, picking it up out of the dirt, and flinging it in our faces. For me, it gives me every reason to treat them the same way that I treat the female soccer nastiness. My TV makes a sound when I turn it OFF. "CLICK!"

The only thing Trump did wrong was to expand the 24 hour fake media cycle for another day on the famous four who run the Democrat Party.

Pound sand Goodwin. Trump is the antidote to the PC BS that has poisoned our ability to speak the truth. Trump was speaking the truth and you and your ilk find it shocking. Go find a fainting couch!

Goodwin might be right. The President should be more cautious about turning off his strongest supporters with his wild words. I spent yesterday with family members who have been fervent pro-Trumpers. But now, they are not only wavering, but turning away.

He didn't go too far! Nobody is actually listening to the words people are using anymore, it's all "well he said this, which really means this" nonsense. I'm personally very tired of folks coming here and disparaging virtually everything about country *with no repercussions*, unlike the awful places they came from, and not acknowledging it! They're screaming at the people who fought and died so they could not only disparage the country but actually be elected to its highest legislative bodies! This is nothing more than the adult having it out with the rebellious teenager who needs to grow up. And we're only having this argument because the rebellious teenager is on the national stage, requiring a national level response.

Why do these people keep saying telling Trump what he needs to do “this time”? Every time Trump blows up the left, you can count on some Republican or conservative telling him he has “gone too far this time.“ Give it a rest. Americans, real Americans, love it because this is the first time in a long time that our thoughts are being articulated by our leader. When he said if you don’t like America, “you can leave“, a collective cheer went up across the American heartland.

Constipated Goodwin never did like Donald J. Trump. Never “approved of him”. Inched toward him on programs like Lou Dobbs’s, where he couldn’t be against him, but always dragging one heavy foot. Expect no more now. If Goodwin's add-a-pearls are falling apart from too much clutching, get him another set so that he can continue on. But quietly. We don’t need to hear from him.

Goodman, like so many of these pundits, still fails to recognize the Truth, which President Trump does, about the members of the democrat communist party - These fanatical enemies from within are in a total, take no prisoners war with America whose goal is to impose a communist style dictatorship over our country and in a total war the first rule is never, ever apologize to the enemy for any actions taken in pursuit of victory which in this case is the preservation of our Republic, Freedoms, Constitution, Rule of Law and our Personal Liberties. Trump told the Truth. Finally we have a war time leader in the White House who takes the war to our enemies with a ruthlessness and single minded no holds barred, take no prisoners, offensive who will lead us to victory. The democrat communist party needs to be utterly destroyed so that they never have any power over this country again. We are in a Civil War, Goodman and the rest of you weak spined, lily livered pukes who run around wailing and bemoaning that President Trump called out these 4 traitors who comprise the Squat Squad in blunt truthful terms, need to either join us or get the hell out of the way. Fools with pens. Keep kicking butt, Mr. President.

NO APOLOGIES PLEASE, MR. TRUMP! It’s about time this was said about these haters. And condemning you in Congress is the same as impeaching you and will do nothing to further the Democrat cause. This country will never be united as long as the Democrat Party exists. They don’t want unity, only power to turn the US into a socialist country.

Michael and others are dead wrong: Headline “Republican support for Trump rises after racially charged tweets: Reuters/Ipsos poll” https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-poll/republican-support-for-trump-rises-after-racially-charged-tweets-reuters-ipsos-poll-idUSKCN1UB2UD?il=0 This headline is also dead wrong. Here is the entire tweet, as recorded by Don Surber: 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#more As Surber notes, the media cherrypicked and shrieked “racist!”...

Think about it. A true Trump supporter, who supported him because of his patriotism and his policies, and his commitment to the people where those factors are involved, would wobble? Waver? Turn against him? All because of the media’s having cherrypicked and totally mischaracterized a tweet? Seriously? No. But there have been lots of pretenders who have tried to undermine him with the “I was for him, but….” song and dance. His supporters recognize them and don’t bite.

But, there is an accumulation of such events that are giving some of my family members the heebie-jeebies. They were Trump voters and they are looking for a reason not to doubt him. I am particularly gratified that now, when he repeats the "go home", he has modified the statement. That's a good thing.

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

But as the number of women who’ve accused the financier (at least, that’s what he claimed to be) of sexual assault grows to grotesque levels—there are said to be more than 50 women who are potential victims—a wave of panic is rippling through Manhattan, DC, and Palm Beach, as Epstein’s former friends and associates rush to distance themselves, while gossiping about who might be ensnared. Donald Trump’s labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, architect of the original 2007 non-prosecution agreement that let Epstein off

Ted Kennedy plunged off the Dike Bridge into the waters off of Martha’s Vineyard, killing his 28-year-old passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne? On July 18, 1969, Kopechne, who had worked on Sen. Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 presidential bid, attended a reunion party with five of her fellow campaign workers, known as the “Boiler Room girls,” so named for their windowless office. The party, held at a rental cottage on the island of Chappaquiddick in Massachusetts

John Kasich strikes again! In a message to his supporters, the failed presidential candidate condemns President's Trump controversial tweets about the notorious "Squad." "We should all be upset," he writes, adding that "being upset isn't enough," however. "It seems like every time I speak out against hate and division, people think it's part of some political agenda or that it means I'm running for office," Kasich writes, after which he admits that this, indeed, may be so. "I may run again but that's not why I speak out." "I'll be honest with you," he continues, "I dislike getting asked every day to comment on the latest Trump-crisis.

"What does that mean? What does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces, can’t take a shower? Come on, man," Cummings said to McAleenan. "None of us would have our children in that position. They are human beings."

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

At a Tuesday night city council meeting, Berkeley became the first city in America to ban the use of natural gas piping in new construction. But that was not the only utility-related issue they saw fit to attend to. No, there was another matter on deck: Eliminating the gendered connotations of words like "manhole" in the city municipal code. (Snip) "Manpower" will be referred to as "human effort," and "man-made" objects will be described with terms like "human-made," "artificial," "manufactured," "machine made" or "synthetic." Gendered professional terms like "fireman," "firewoman" and "craftsman" will be swapped out for gender-neutral substitutes like "firefighter"

“Yes, yes! Speak truth to power!” Rep.

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 doesn't matter. Never mind that their families came here in 1923 to flee the Armenian Holocaust
