          I did screen shoot & copy it all. From what I see in the 9 posts I had to delete, it is wrong to say that “All Illegals are criminals”, even if they are. Its either the fault of @grayhamandeggs9 or the people protecting the Parkland protestors. @grayhamandeggs9 seem to have been stalking my wall for a while and got made because I would not agree with his views on Charolettsville. (its all in another post). Parkland people are threatening many people on Tweeter with suspension cause they will report them.

    Just to keep folks updated about the elections in Italy 🇮🇹 today. Polls have officially closed as of 5 pm Eastern Time (6 hour difference meaning it closed at 11 pm in Italy). There are four major parties that have the best chance to reach 40% of the vote in order to name the Prime Minister. Otherwise they have to form a coalition with another party.

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/926509/italian-election-2018-polls-explained-italy-election-guide-candidates

    From the article linked above:

    There are three main parties and their dominating leaders that are the focus of attention this week.

    These factions are the centre-right Forza Italia (Force Italy FI) led by Silvio Berlusconi, the Partito Democratic (Democratic Party PD) led by Matteo Renzi and the Five Star Movement (M5S) led by Luigi Di Maio.

    At the moment all indicators point towards a hung Parliament, which means the embittered rivals will need to find partners dos trike a coalition Government.

    Rumours point towards potential centre-left coalition between the PD, Piu Eeuropa (More Europe), Lista Insieme and Civica Popolare.

    FI could also strike a partnership with right-wing party The League, Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) and Noi con l’Italia (Us with Italy).

    The M5S has so far vehemently rejected all mention of a coalition and hopes to secure a majority victory of its own.

      The one block that has a chance to win 40% of the vote this evening is the Five Star Movement headed by 31 year old Luigi DiMaio. Here is who they are:

      https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/926395/italian-election-2018-polls-latest-what-five-star-movement-win-mean-italy-M5S

      From the article linked above:

      Luigi Di Maio, the 31-year-old Five Star Movement (M5S) leader hopes to soon walk into the Italian Parliament as the youngest Prime Minister in Italian history.

      The bold young politician believes his party is the one-solution answer to Italy’s deepening economic recession and migrant crisis.

      He said last year: “The only possibility for the other parties is to support a Five Star government. We are the only chance of stability. Either they support us or they vote again.”

      He said: “People feel that living standards aren’t picking up again and largely the EU is being blamed for this, because of the austerity measures imposed on Italy.

      “The second main reason is migration. In the past four years we’ve seen about 600,000 people arriving.

      “Many are economic migrants from Africa and the Middle East, so this has really benefited those parties that have taken a strong stand against migration – mainly the centre right but also the M5S.”

      A M5S victory could be a source of shock and friction for the European Union, depending on how big of a victory it is.

      In the run up to the general election the M5S significantly softened its signature anti-EU stance.

      Where former leader and ex-comedian Beppe Grillo proudly boasted his distrust towards the European institution, Mr Di Maio confirmed on his very first day as party leader he wants to stay in the EU.

      Mr Scazzieri said: “In the short term the EU would be quite shocked. If the M5S is the largest party it’s one thing, but if they are so large they can single-handedly form a Government, then it would be another.

        As far as I understand , the results discussed in la RAI show no clear winner. They will have to form a coalition. Il movimento cinco stelle got around 33%, based on exit polls. Its not enough to form a government. We have to wait to see what happens when the real results are available.

    “When you have about 300,000 new Floridians that have come to Florida from Puerto Rico just this year, it is something to pay attention to,” Priebus said. “And I worry that sometimes the [Republican] party isn’t paying enough attention to this issue.

    “If it were me, I would make sure we have every single body on the ground that we could,” he said, adding that Florida is just one factor in an already “complicated” midterm.

    They preach to us and try to make us ‘ashamed’ to be Americans.

    It’s no wonder that so many people are suffering from depression.

    More cover-up questions, by Seth Rich

    Posted on March 3, 2018

    “Official Washington does not want to conduct a serious investigation of Seth Rich’s murder. James A. Lyons of the Washington Times may be taking his life in his hands for bringing it up. From Lyons at washingtontimes.com:

    The curious murder of Seth Rich poses questions that just won’t stay under the official rug.”

    “With the clearly unethical and most likely criminal behavior of the upper management levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) exposed by Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, there are two complementary areas that have been conveniently swept under the rug.”

    “The first deals with the murder of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich, and the second deals with the alleged hacking of the DNC server by Russia. Both should be of prime interest to special counsel Robert Mueller, but do not hold your breath.”

      Yeah. He did.
      And it was all about ‘social justice’ crap and the treatment of gays, trannies and minorities.

      So whatever this is…I am sure that it is with the input and counsel of our Generals and Admirals.
      Our President wouldn’t be doing this without their approval.

      That group Indivisible screened the movie “1984” all over the country for free about a year ago.

      It was shown at the Unitarian Church in my N. FL. town. I went.

      It was very clear that it was being shown as an example of “what would happen now that Trump was elected”.

      (I guess they were right in a way, since the Left certainly *has* ramped up their 1984ish behavior since Trump was elected).

    Levin & Nunes Rocked Tonight. We need more of this. Brett & Shep will resign in the morning, and Schmoe & Leaka will be hysterical as always.

    Donnie Deuchbag is right. President Trump will win in a Landslide in 2020. 70% of men and 45% of the fairer sex will vote for our VSG.

      Nothing fair about the fairer sex. Look at what hellish consequences their majorities have wrought by being so politically gullible (well, exceptions out there such as myself and other female Treepers).

  44. Heads up: Nick Freitas, the Delegate who gave the awesome speech in the VA Legislature against gun control, is going to be on F&F tomorrow morning – time at this point is 8:40 AM.

    Kinda starting to love this. It’s getting funny now.

    BREXIT, Trump, now Italy. Same hysteria and smears used by the Lefty Globalists, again and again:

      Great comment from the article:

      “Naturally, the media only report the views of snowflakes throwing tantrums because the vote didn’t go their way, instead of the joy of the majority who want their country back.”

      Yep. We’ve seen this show for two years in the U.S.
