    Mark Sanford , yet another S.C. RINO, is to be primaried. His opponent is apparently a Trump supporter and is announcing on Aug. 30. Her name is Katie Arrington.

    This is your chance to shine, South Carolina. Start getting those RINOs out, for the good of us all.

    Anyone caught destroying a historical statue/monument should be charged with sedition with heavy prison terms and pay restitution as well.

    The Left is preparing for the 2020 Presidential election….
    It begins slowly, but over the next 2-3 years the results will be significant.
    Google filtering content.
    Facebook dropping accounts.
    YouTube eliminating some pro-Trump videos and accounts.
    Twitter top-listing negative replies to pro-Trump tweets and manipulating “trends.

    At the Arizona rally, President Trump said something that gave me the chills…
    “If it wasn’t for social media, I would’t be standing here, tonight.”

      Also the silencing of conservative voices on television. It may be old media, but it is still important. Gone or absent from television are Roger Ailes and Bill Shine, critical to the old FOX News, Bill O’Reilly, Charles Payne, Eric Bolling, Hannity under constant pressure.

      Add that to the really alarming and rapid attacks on Free Speech and the censoring of the internet you spoke of in your post and it really is scary stuff.

      The only tweets I see are ones reposted here, but there is a Twitter Account called something like GOP Tenn whose tweets are really effective and I think I saw that the account has been suspended or something. And some liberal loser has created a Go Fund Me account to buy Twitter so that they can kick Trump off of it.

      It is a lot of threads but when taken as a whole it isn’t a pretty picture.

      We just need to make new social media companies. And Twitter had better be careful.

    I hope PTrump would work to make all these social media companies as like utilities and same kind of regulations. Otherwise we are going to lose free speech when fake msm is dead.

      I don’t know about the utility part SR, not sure I want the government regulating speech. How about anti-trust? That might be a better route in the long term.

    Update on Camping World canceling their event at Mar–A-Lago: today the manager of a Camping World delivered 2 dozen donuts to a friends business in Georgia. He said they were intended as a piece offering because they had been overwhelmed with complaints and their business has taken a dive! Loved it! I was one of those people who called and complained, so glad to hear all the calls are effective.

    Federal Judge says Sen. Bob Menendez (D) CANNOT CAST ANY SENATE VOTES till his trial is over…haaaaa.

    • Somebody says:

      I’m not so sure the judge has the authority to do that. Judicial overreach is bad, even if we like this particular ruling. I’m sure this will get overturned.

      • StormyeyesC says:

        No it is within the judges authority. Menendez requested another delay, or asked if the court would schedule his trial so that he could be available on days when votes were being cast. The judge is not in the business of working around the defendant’s outside schedule.

      • deqwik2 says:

        The judge didn’t say that. He said he wouldn’t delay the trial for Menendez to go vote. Menendez is free to leave court & vote but that won’t look good for the jury.

    • Niagara Frontier says:

      That’s not what the judge said. Menendez is free to travel to vote but the trial will go on in his absence. He wanted the court to work around his Senate schedule. No defense lawyer wants his client to be absent from a trial. It sends a bad message to the jury.

    For all of our design enthusiasts, I just found this photo tour. The stripes are gone from the Oval Office, but I am not impressed with the new damask. Comments!

    Hannity just aired a segment of *some* of the women that Bill Clinton assaulted in response to Hillary’s “Trump is creepy” blather.

    Glad I saw that!

    I haven’t had time to read all of the Presidential thread comments recently (doubt that anyone can) so this may be a repeat. But others like myself may not have seen it, it’s dated the 18th and it’s first I’m seeing it when I logged into Twitter today.

    Call me cynical, but after all the articles pointing out Charlottesville was a fabricated incident, the UN (right on cue) calls us out for racism… Is this another step in their nefarious plan? Are 44’s dirty little fingerprints behind this?
