    Not even Richard Branson can get away with ungentlemanly behavior. This accusation is seven years old and just now being made. She obviously enjoyed his parties and jetting around, but now that it’s over, she whines about something he did at a drunkfest.

      F Richard Branson –

      I don’t care about some girl, too drunk of his private island — HOWEVER, it ids known that he runs w/ the Epstein, Burkle, can not think of the other — crowd… I usually don’t take off to millionaire’s private islands, party it up, then come out 7 years later crying about him “motor boating” my boob.. Ok — NONE of those things have I ever even been close …

      So time will tell – he seems to have the super protection power of the evil Soros — so im sure he will be fine!

      Look, I like a good laugh as much as the next person, I don’t mind the funny political humor pictures or even all of the memes and gifts…but this has Nothing to do with the political, Trump Administration open thread.

      I know it’s easy to get off topic or sidetracked (I am guilty, see poltical thread that veered off onto diet) as comments go along but to start off a comment thread off topic in the first place is frustrating.

      I read almost every comment on almost every thread, almost every day. Videos take time to watch and slow loading. And, if off topic, then they are frustrating.

      I get how millennials are related to politics and this is a clever video but maybe for the open topic thread?

      Maybe I am just tied so apologies if I come off as grumpy v. Making suggestions to better utilize people’s time. It really is an amazing video of some of the younger generation.

            No, of course not. But it does clutter up the thread and slow the load time for many who are on mobil devices.

            And we don’t know until we watch it if it is directly pertinent to current political issues, political players, topics in the news, politicians, the Trump Administration, background to any of the above, etc., which is what this thread is about.

            Again, I know we deviate and go off on rabbit trails (I am guilty of this too!) but why start a rabbit trail in the first place? If its off topic/a rabbit trail from the very start then why not just post on the open thread?

    Support MAGA

    The thread rolled on, many points made,
    Logic ruled and the facts were weighed.
    But with reason on the upswing,
    The trolls arrived and started to sing:

    “Jeff Sessions is no friend of mine,
    He’s never right at any time.
    He sits at his desk all the day,
    Never working to earn his pay.”

    Like little children taunting others,
    The trolls spout, one after another.
    “Sessions is no good. He must go!”
    “Sessions is deep state, we all know.”

    Post after post they beat their drums,
    Singing their chorus ad nauseum.
    Facts are twisted, logic ignored
    By this know-it-all mindless hoard.

    They would have us all believe
    That PTrump’s weak or just deceived.
    They forget it’s the President
    Who runs this show by his consent.

    He’s a tactician, through and through,
    Planning his steps to thwart a coup.
    It won’t be easy, it’s gonna be hard,
    A running battle won yard by yard.

    The swamp is deep and full of snakes,
    But will be drained for all our sakes.
    Until that time we should support
    PTrump’s efforts – not sell him short.

    The truth will out in all good time,
    Exposing all the plots and crimes.
    Justice will triumph in the end
    With American First, once again.

      You should not call fellow treepers trolls who “would have us all believe that PTrump’s weak or just deceived” and if you think that rhyming is a good excuse for personal attacks, you are sadly mistaken.

      We can criticize ANYONE in the administration without asking your permission or approval. Claiming that by criticizing X someone tries to prove that “PTrump” is weak and gullible is non sequitur.

        I wouldn’t normally respond to some criticism. I would like to address, this time, the charge that the poem is a personal attack on fellow Treepers.

        The poem is about Treepers having a good discussion, based on facts and logic, until trolls arrive.

        The trolls proceed to criticize AG Sessions by saying:
        – He’s NEVER right
        – He NEVER works
        – He must go (be fired)
        – He is Deep State

        The trolls:
        – Post their opinions repetitively
        – And go on and on
        – And twist facts
        – And ignore logic
        – Claim that PTrump is weak
        – Claim that PTrump is deceived
        – Forget that PTrump has the authority to replace AG Sessions

        It’s going to be a long, hard battle and we should support PTrump.

        The poem is about what trolls do, and for us to support PTrump.

        The poem is not about saying that posters who have reasoned criticisms of AG Sessions based on fact and logic are Trolls or are directly criticizing PTrump.

        And, as to your last paragraph, you can do anything you want in your entire life without asking my permission. Duh!

          BakoCarl, thank you for the reply. Now please provide names and examples of trolls “twisting facts” and “ignoring logic” vs. names and examples of non-trolls with “legitimate criticism.” Then please specify the allegedly ignored logic you are referring to. Since I criticized Sessions myself, I take issue with your “poem” and, frankly, take offense.

          In my opinion, there is an active, militant Troll-catching brigade operating on this board who assumed a monopoly on Truth and Logic.

            You are spot on Summer. I have also asked those “troll callers” to cite examples, but no one ever has. They are unable to because the truth is anyone who disagrees with their OPINIONS are immediately called trolls or told to shut up. I agree there is a particular brigade with a pack mentality. They have succeeded in chasing away some regular posters that I miss and had great input. The irony is their behavior is EXACTLY like the loons on the left and they can’t even recognize it. Profess 1st amendment and tolerance, yet spend their time shutting people up and refusing to hear anyone’s opinion but their own. SMH

            Thank goodness there are times they are off the boards and respectful conversations can occur. I usually stay out of the water when I see the sharks. Observe from the shore, but thought you might like a life preserver!

            It’s no use, Summer. But just so you know, I think the poem is offensive too. There’s no “dislike” options here so who knows how many feel the same way? The “likes” speak volumes and most people won’t jump in a conflict unless there is a group. But I wanted to let you know you aren’t alone on this subject.

    Those two weirdos are too good to get their butts out of bed to do their post-Thanksgiving show, so they FAKE it?
    Friday was a workday for the majority of Americans, why are they too special? It would not be so bad if they just ran the taped show, but no, they pretended they had cooked and eaten a dinner.
    My God.

      Bendix, one easy way to check if something has been shared already before posting a news story is to do a search function (“find” like you would use for pages/documents depending if you are apple or microsoft. for apple it is “command” button and “f” and I *think* for microsoft it is “control” & “f” but we have had this apple computer for 8 yrs so I might remember incorrectly).

      I search each page to double check with a key word and then usually a 2nd key work (it only takes a few seconds per page).

      Naturally, I read through the threads but sometimes scroll a little too fast past entries and just want to double check myself before I post.

      I made a big mistake by double posting something (well, almost double posting but it was extremely close to what was already posted) when in a hurry & distracted (I had been posting comments and quotes while listening live to a press conference because I know many are working during the day and can’t watch them but can scroll through the comments but I was also homeschooling at the same time!) one day and have learned to be much more careful as I was called out big time!!!!!

      Hope this helps!

    Here’s an amusing story with some potentially corroborating evidence- I was checking around because I’m still not sure how valid April LaJune is:

    “Apparently, according to sources close to the corruption investigation of these elected officials, they were called to a meeting while President Trump was away and told their illegal assets would be frozen. They also said if any of them continued with their obstruction, they would be audited retro-actively.

    This recent development coincides with the whiplash Senator John McCain must have recently had when he reversed his stance on the tax bill which the is set to be voted on by the Senate following the Thanksgiving recess and has already passed in the house.”

    OANN has an article saying that NO GOP have indicated they will vote against the tax bill…LOL

      Why would anyone let them keep ‘illegal’ assets?
      The statute of limitations, or time limit, for an IRS audit is, in most cases, three years after either your filing deadline or the date that you actually filed, whichever is later. If you underreported the taxes that you owed by at least 25 percent, or if you did not report income derived from foreign financial assets exceeding $5,000, the IRS has up to six years to audit your return. If the IRS suspects that your tax return shows fraudulent reporting, then no time period limits its ability to audit your return. Similarly, if you did not file any return, no time limit restricts the IRS’s ability to audit that tax year. The IRS may ask you to agree to an extension of the audit period if the audit is not resolved within the time limit.

        The one problem I have with QAnon’s assertion that the masses have to ‘awakened’ before Trump can move is a common misunderstanding that intelligent people have about the way -95 IQ people think. They are never going to wrap their heads around it, but dullards often respect the man with the big stick. I used to have political conversations with people like that at my job all the time. After two hours of explaining complex situations to them, you almost think they get it. Then you see them two weeks later and they’ve been totally rebrainwashed by the MSM. Believe me, when Trump and the DOJ start locking a few of these globalist occult weirdos up, there won’t be rioting in the streets in support of them. There will be awe among the common man that this country has a leader to go after the crooks who seemed untouchable. But the more you let the MSM’s stuck record go on with out reacting, the more you come across as weak and give credence to the fake news.
