    “An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were massacred by being hacked to death with machetes and you’re telling me that country is NOT a shithole? Or in Tanzania where albinos are raped because many Africans believe that cures AIDS? Please. #Shithole”
    –Mark Dice

    “How does one define a shithole? Violence you say? Careful “Killing takes place in America at an average of 87 times each day. Going to war in Afghanistan is less dangerous than living in Chicago.“
    -CNN reporter Amy LaPorte

    “Chicago is a shithole too. Yes. Most liberal run cities in America are shitholes. That’s what democrat mayors and governors do to places.”

    Attorney General Sessions Announces Hezbollah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team
    Attorney General Jeff Sessions today announced the creation of the Hezbollah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team (HFNT), a group of experienced international narcotics trafficking, terrorism, organized crime, and money laundering prosecutors. HFNT prosecutors and investigators are tasked with investigating individuals and networks providing support to Hezbollah, and pursuing prosecutions in any appropriate cases. The HFNT will begin by assessing the evidence in existing investigations, including cases stemming from Project Cassandra, a law enforcement initiative targeting Hezbollah’s drug trafficking and related operations.

    Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division will supervise the HFNT, and will convene a coordination meeting focused on identifying and combatting such support to Hezbollah. The HFNT will coordinate with, among others, investigators from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), including the DEA’s Special Operations Division; Federal Bureau of Investigation; Homeland Security Investigations; Assistant United States Attorneys; and attorneys from the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and National Security Division.

    Apparently, the New York Times quoted Trump as saying In December Haitian immigrants “all have AIDS,” and Nigerian immigrants would never “go back to their huts” if granted entrance to the U.S.”

    I’m sorry. I feel very immature… but that’s hilarious.

    He has a way of saying things that are TRUE, but people don’t feel comfortable saying out loud.

    If we have to now start arguing about how many of the Haitians have Aids, I think he proved his point. If we have to clarify that some Nigerians don’t live in huts… again… he has made his point.

    I honestly think this wins him votes because people like that he’s honest and we’re all thinking it. The people who are all caught up in virtue signaling won’t vote for him anyways.

    There’s literally no downside to stuff like this.

    President Trump did not say the words ascribed to him…especially in the manner the Fake News Media alleges…this is more counter-measures as the COUP is totally exposed. See Sundance Expose to know the truth! They prefer to burn it all down instead of building our country back up…Sorry…America First!

      You haven’t been banned.

      This site is ran by WordPress, they have filters and sometimes won’t post a post that trips one of those filters.

      So for instance, if you just post a picture, usually that won’t go through, because they don’t want people spamming the boards with a bunch of pictures of who knows what.

      If you make a comment, and post a picture, it’ll probably go through.

      Typically if the mods get tired of you they’ll put you on moderation where they have to approve your posts. Yours are popping up in real time though so you’re not in Moderation.

      The site has posting rules, if you don’t violate them egregiously… you probably won’t get moderated.

          they’re probably not thrilled we’re all saying Shithole but it’s on topic so they’ll probably let it slide (ewwwww) for a day or two.

          If you get moderated when you post it’ll say “Your post is awaiting moderation” or something like that. I’ve been on the naughty list a couple times, lol.

          Their main thing is they don’t like people attacking other posters but read over all the rules to make sure you don’t annoy them too much.

          Sometimes we all get carried away chit chatting but ultimately each post we make should add something to the discussion.

            I would never intentionally go out of my way to be disrespectful to Sundance or the Site. I may try to push the envelope. I may slip up at times but it is never intentional. Most important is that I do try my best to be respectful of what Sundance is trying to accomplish.

    Well, this was a mistake (I’d have gone with 3rd world hellholes, LOL) but my beloved Trump always takes lemons and turns them into lemonaide.
    –Mark my words, now that this will be the discussion for the next week he’ll focus on why it’s important to put American interests first. That’s what he was trying to do in that meeting.
    –And the people who thought he was caving in the Bill of Love will see that he’s trying to put American interests first.
    –It’s going to be hard going at first because it gives the RINO’s and Dems ammunition to go full speed ahead with the low wage slaves/welfare recipients/future Dems that they’re dead set on destroying the country with.
    –But it will mobilize all of us to watch what our uni-Party liars are doing to contact them all and begin lobbying for American interests with all our might.
    –So anyway, we all need to contact our reps and push for the wall, limiting welfare for immigrants and not importing people with no income, bad education from violence-prone areas or whatever you see as the best way to fix this broken system.

    In the 60’s… everyone was “Gone to the Moon”….

    The whole world gathered around whatever t.v. they could, and watched the moon landing. It kind of brought everybody together.

    People have talked for decades about how that will never happen again; it’s a yardstick they’ve used for ratings ever since.

    The world has changed, in a lot of ways for the better, in some ways for the worse….

    And now along comes Donald Trump.

    The world now gathers around his twitter account to look at just what he said about whom.

    In a strange way, it’s brought the world together. Doing the same thing, but on opposite sides.. seemingly divided almost perfectly in half.

    With President Trump’s colorful language about this, he HAD to have known this would get out.

    So can we all agree, he said this on purpose? Now why would he say that?

    – Fake News the last few days that he’s going soft. Apparently not.
    – He’s negotiating with Liberals. He said something so egregious, so offensive that they”re convinced he’s a raving racist… and they better take whatever the hell they can get from *THAT* guy.
    – Doesn’t hurt that it makes people think about Haiti….. Helloooooo Hillary!
    – He likes things being hot. He just said it yesterday. He’ll take the heat. His whole life has been heat. Now that North Korea has calmed down, he’s on to the next bit of drama he can manipulate to his favor (the country’s favor).

    You know he’s going to keep doing this, until he dies, right?

      ***

      Interesting points.

      I would agree that he did it on purpose – AFTER I SEE PROOF he said it all!

      Said proof has not yet been produced.

      Not only that, I have seen now that the claim he said “shithole” wasn’t even made by anyone in the meeting. It was claimed by “a source close to the meeting”.

      Past patterns thusly indicate a VERY HIGH likelihood of this being FAKE NEWS.

      If it is, I’ll be “blown away” by how many “pundits” (and forum posters) immediately ran with this..

      So… we’ll see…

        They asked the white house about it, and they replied that President Trump is supporting America and other congress people are more concerned about other countries.

        So they didn’t deny that he said it. I have very little doubt he’d say something like that, he’s a New Yorker, by the way.

      Interesting Ron. Scott Adams had a great take on it, but he did say it was a mistake. However …people like Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson were really mad with him about the DACA amnesty. Maybe he uses this in some way. He also told a story on the campaign trail that he and Ivanka went to a meeting and he told her to “watch what he does next” and he went to the meeting and shouted like crazy which got them to back down and give him what he wanted. So we can’t really rule out that something about this was calculated.
      –But with Trump, when things aren’t calculated (like the some illegals are rapists or Pu$$$ygate thing) then he just takes the bad drama and turns it his way. He even wrote in Art of the Deal that in a weird way, bad press can be good. And he wrote that it’s certainly better than no press.
      –So anyhoodles ..it’s going to be an interesting few days if we let it.
      –I believe if we all do our part (watching our corrupt politicians like hawks) maybe we could make something good come of this.

    Fun little game to play.

    Go to twitter, and look at what’s Trending, so for instance right now “Haiti” is trending. Click that, and you’ll see all the liberals clutching their pearls that President Trump said “shithole”.

    Then click their username, and see how many tweets back they said something much, much, much, much, much worse.

    Yeah, Conservatives can talk hard and curse but it’s NOTHING compared to the trash that comes out of liberals mouths.
