Senate Republicans scramble to contain fallout
from Woodward bombshell

Original Article

Posted By: tisHimself, 9/12/2020 4:10:17 AM

Senate Republicans hoping to go on offense this week found themselves instead playing defense once again because of controversial remarks by President Trump — this time to Watergate reporter Bob Woodward. It was a familiar dilemma for GOP senators used to being chased by reporters over their thoughts on Trump’s latest furor, but in this case it came with terrible timing — eight weeks before an election in which the Senate is on the line and as they hoped to call attention to Democrats blocking a coronavirus relief bill Thursday on a procedural motion.

What bombshell? President Trump was forced to waste WEEKS defending himself against the Impeachment Hoax instead of focusing on the Wuhan Flu. Why hasn't anyone mentioned this?

Bombshell? The bombshell ole Bob sat on for months so he could pocket more money via his book? THAT bombshell? How ‘bout this— if Republicans spent more time undergirding this President, they wouldn’t need to “scramble to contain fallout.. from [a 6-month-old] bombshell.” Idiots.

The word bombshell is fast losing impact, every little thing that can be said to denigrate our President is always s bombshell. Well, a lot of bombshells are duds that don't explode. Mattis is one of them, as dud as they come.

Playing defense? What a bunch of losers. If they ever took a principled stand it would amaze me. This type of behavior is not going to get them votes, so if they are only trying to protect their cushy jobs they can't even do that right. Heaven forbid they ever give a rip about the country and the American people.

Everything he is accused of saying doesn't jibe with how he actually handled the COVID situation. Most everything I have heard about this book sounds like Democrat fantasy. Now, supposedly there are tapes of all these things he allegedly said. I wonder if they are doctored or even completely made up. A lot of splicing and re-recording?? A voice actor pretending to be him? Considering how Trump feels about the media, it makes NO sense that he would meet with Woodward (of all people!) so many times for multiple interviews, let alone even once! I just do not see it. One would have to be totally braindead stupid to say those things he is accused of saying in that book. I would demand those tapes be analyzed. The President has his shortcomings and is not the most eloquent of speakers, but he is not an idiot. Please tell me this is just a nightmare. The left is doing every thing to carpet bomb him with every smear possible. It's obvious they will continue to attack him at every opportunity and don't worry about the fallout because there are way too many of them to go after for all the lies and deception.

This is called CYA, folks. The GOP knows the dems are planning to cheat. But realize, most of the GOP are really second string democrats and people with such a lust for hedonism, that they are already in the dems pockets: bought, paid for, and damned. This little farce is to give them an excuse to turn away and say, "its trumps fault" when the Democrats start dumping in the fake mail-in ballots. Understand. There are very few people on Capitol Hill who actually have his back.We are approaching the first act of the final battle. Armageddon approaches.

Like all of the others we have endured, this "bombshell" is nothing more than passed gas in a windstorm. The initial claim was that the President acted too early and overreacted rashly, Woodward's and now others' claims are that he did not act early enough. The dimmocrat propaganda machine can not get its story straight. Donald Trump was listening to Dr. Fauci and the CDC when we all thought they were somewhat competent. We have learned differently.

In my humble opinion, Woodward is only one level up from Biden when it comes to speaking. Jeesh! It takes him three minutes to get out a couple words. I am not scrambling or anything else over Woodward's Book. He's a Liberal and is trying to stop Trump with a bunch of Lies. Simple as that! Like a tiny barking puppy yapping at our ankles.

Even if I believe Bob Woodward which I don't, he is trying to sell a book just like John Bolton. Perhaps Donald Trump didn't want people to go into a panic. What is wrong with that? This man loves our country and wants the best for it and Democrats can't seem to figure it out with the American people. Donald Trump has it figured out because he becomes one of those people when the presidency ends for him. Democrats, liberals and RINO's are doing everything possible to discredit President Donald Trump. We MAGA supporters are going to have to hang on through all of this. I prefer to hang onto God's "coat tails" for my guidance. . .

The "bombshell" has even less impact considering that Donald Trump and those of us who didn't panic turned out to be right. The virus is no worse than the annual flu and far less serious than the strains of flu that were actual killers in the past and totally ignored (see Obama, Barack H.) Masks are disappearing all over the place.

"Bombshell"???? More like a tiny little dud, "pft." A few days ago Ben Shapiro played a montage of Trump saying repeatedly, over and over, beginning in February and continuing well into April, that he was trying to not panic the public. So Trump didn't say anything to Woodward that he wasn't out there at the time saying publicly and often. It's as if Woodward just "revealed" that Trump always wears a suit. Calm down. The Republicans got so used to losing that they forgot what winning is like. Here's a hint: your opposition tells lies about you.

I have never seen such dainty emotional doilies as the members of congress we have right now. The slightest breeze gets them totally ruffled. With the way they behave, along with the media, Trump can pretty much do what he needs to do, because the opposition is gonna whine and howl no matter what he does. The old darn if he does, darn if he doesn't syndrome.

The 18 "meetings" were all phone calls of short duration. You can be sure President Trump also recorded the calls. PDT has been talking to the media types for over 40 years. Bob Woodward has been Trumped. Just as PDT trolls Twitter, he just trolled a whole book. One by one Trump is picking off the Left's icons. By November 3rd the Democrat's political landscape will be as charred as California's forests. MAGA: Love the Boss!

The only people paying any attention at all to this crap are politicians and the propagandists who create and spread it. Some clod fabricates a story out of bits and pieces of conversations all taken out of context or simply makes the thing up out of whole cloth and our "leaders" all go ape over it. Meanwhile we have open insurrection in a number of cities going hand-in-hand with open degeneracy and depravity in our schools and these "leaders" can't be bothered to even comment on it let alone do anything about it. Not to mention the nation is running a 4 trillion dollar deficit (so far) and it gets no mention at all (does anyone even care?).

Scott and her friend, investor and entrepreneur Renee Walters, didn't initially plan on buying a large plot of land, but they had a vision that was clear—to create a safe space for their Black families.
Why Biden Will Withdraw From the Debates 57 replies

William Shakespeare famously observed that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” One of these players, Joe Biden, is currently trying out for the biggest role of his life. Unfortunately, he’s in danger of bombing the audition. He’s flubbing lines, breaking character, and occasionally forgetting the plot. His rambling, often incoherent speech in front of a supportive audience at a church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on September 3 shows that he’s no longer playing the role of viable presidential candidate. Instead, he’s stumbled into the last scene of Shakespeare’s “strange, eventful history” — “second childishness and mere oblivion.”

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed on Friday that President Donald Trump’s recent success in securing peace deals in the Middle East was nothing more than “a distraction.”“How much credit do you give the President of the United States for these peace agreements?” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked.“Well, hopefully they won’t—hopefully they will beneficial [sic] to the region,” Pelosi said. “We’ve been waiting for a very long time for the president’s proposal for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement that honored the two state solution. It was coming in two weeks, it was coming in two months, it was coming in six months—it still hasn’t come in any way that has

This year’s presidential election confronts voters with the most consequential choice they have faced in decades, and for many, their lifetimes: between a divisive, authoritarian-leaning incumbent and a seasoned patriot who brings not only five decades of experience, ability and commitment to American values, but also bold ideas at a time of national crisis. Nothing less than the health of our constitutional democracy is at stake. So stark is the contrast between Donald Trump and Joe Biden that we feel compelled to announce our endorsement of the Democratic nominee and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, now, at what is traditionally the beginning of the fall campaign and before

It’s been hard to miss the steady drumbeat of articles and think-pieces over the past few months about Election Day war games and post-election planning underway on the left, rooted in obsessive fears that President Trump will refuse to accept an electoral loss, triggering a constitutional crisis and maybe even widespread civic unrest, all in a desperate attempt to cling to power. “The Left Secretly Preps for MAGA Violence After Election Day,” reads a recent headline at The Daily Beast. “Is Trump Planning a Coup d’État?” asks another recent piece at The Nation. “Is America in the Early Stages of Armed Insurgency?” frets Slate.

Normally, I would spurn the idea of citing an anonymous post that purports to contain inside information on a presidential candidate. But two factors currently weigh on my mind, causing me to make an exception. One is that MSM Trump-haters have no compunction at all over relying exclusively on anonymous sources (snip) But the other factor is more serious and directly relevant to the anonymous post I am about to cite. The Biden campaign clearly is hiding their candidate from exposure to circumstances that might test his mental acuity and vigor on a sustained basis. We now have direct evidence that the campaign has been deceiving the public by using a teleprompter

I woke up in the morning wondering about the dark red rays coming from behind the curtain. While I expected the darkened sky, the degree of darkness and the fact that I couldn’t smell fire surprised me. Northern California fires have become increasingly common over the last decade as a consequence of mismanaging the environment. Native Americans staged controlled burns to safeguard their villages and create favorable hunting conditions. We failed to emulate that practice, and, as even Mother Jones concedes, so much fuel accumulated in the wilderness that megafires began burning year after year.

San Francisco, Calif. -- The Poopalosi protestor live streamed this performance piece from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s residence in the posh Presidio Terrace neighborhood on YouTube. Believe it or not, thanks to District Attorney Chesa Boudin, this act is quasi-legal in San Francisco. When Boudin, a public defender who ran on an anti-police campaign platform, was elected in 2019, he promised not to prosecute so-called “quality of life” crimes, including public urination, defecation and prostitution. Within hours of posting on Friday, Lifes Mavrek, the moniker on YouTube of this Cuban-American vagabond, raised thousands of dollars and generated tens of thousands of views.
