      I have a liberal friend/co-worker on Facebook. He told me to go look up 4,000 Trump told (WP). I accommodated him in hopes of doing some teaching. I went through five of them (mostly the give what the consider to be a lie, then count how many times he said it), listed my response, gave him references (none of them were lies, one had a percentage wrong). The last one was about deportation and his response was, “I don’t care if it’s 1,000. One is too many. I don’t see how anyone can believe this liar in chief.”

      Aye, yi, yi! I told him I did him the courtesy of reviewing his recommendation, and if he wanted to discuss a couple of topics, fine, but don’t bring emotion because that is not a defense. “You’d better be loaded for bear, because I hate him ain’t gonna cut it.” Very tiring.

      The Washington Times put out a similar article (the lies the media tells about Trump lies) last year and ran through a couple dozen as examples.

      This is a really comprehensive detailed list and very well done. Thanks for posting it.

        LMAO. Scott is basing his opinion on a segment done by Anderson Cooper of CNN. Remember, the network our President has labelled our enemy because they are fake news? It strikes me as odd that so mant here find them oh, so credible. Why not refrain from opining unless you have done serious research on 8 chan? Why the rush to disrespect and divide Trumps MAGA base? Thats what the media is trying to do. Why are so many here willing to side with our enemy rather than our MAGA brothers and sisters?

      Just because Q predicted Hillary will be arrested will not mean she will be arrested right at that time when he posted it Duh! Many of Q’s posts do happen much later also! Just listen to praying medic! He also said he has to post misinformation at times for reason I gather because of the deep state! I believe Trump is speaking to us thru Q because of the fake media and twitter isn’t enough to reach us because what q posts can’t be posted by Trump by twitter! The media would go nuts! Trump fooled the media when he was a business man by acting as his own spokesman PR person John miller and John Barron! Enough said! John is Trumps middle name and Barron is his sons name! Duh!

      The mental gymnastics Q-folks go through to find “proofs” is almost hilarious.

      Good to see Conservative voices jumping on the mainstream #fake news media bandwagon. /s 50 hit pieces within 24 hours plus additional attacks across all social media platforms. Obviously coordinated. All regurgitating the same mish mash of “facts” that demonstrate no real research was done. Very, very suspicious. The coordination of the hit is more unhinged than anything Ive seen done to Trump. No one really has to guess though. As Q pointed out weeks ago, the only person who could legitimize or debunk is POTUS. the media was urged to ask. Anons deluged reporters with requests to just ask POTUS and were refused. Isnt that odd? And after that the tsunami to discredit began WITHOUT asking POTUS. Trump has said today that the fake media is dangerous and divisive. He has called them our enemies. They hate Trump. They hate us and they REALLY hate Q but again, they refuse to do the only thing that would debunk it. Why not? It would be so simple, right? Maybe they already know the answer.

    Sunday at the gym is forced viewing of all the MSM pundit shows, shown side by side on gym’s TV’s. Before going into ignore mode, it is not a bad practice to scan across the screens to see if a key Democrat Player is talking policy for the upcoming election. Today there was a very interesting 1/2 hour on Fareed The Socialist Islamic Screen Zakaria’s program. There was an economic advisor from Bernie Sanders’ crew and some supporting cast discussing the tragedy of the Republican (President Trump) economic plan, they launched into the foundations of prosperity for all the democrats would provide.

    1. The Federal Government can print all the money it needs for their programs because their premise the focus should not be the debt but inflation. Plus, just printing money does not cause inflation, like the German Weimar Republic, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Argentina and others just never happened.
    2. By printing money, they can pay down the debt, hold inflation in check and provide for all free stuff they promise without taxing anybody, except maybe those evil rich folks who do the investing and create skilled job positions..
    Recall in 2009, Paul Krugman, the paragon of economic expertise, recommend the US government just mint limited issue mega notes to pay off the national debt. His initial proposal was a single $12 Trillion dollar note or coin and then he realized more than a single note or coin was needed, but the US government would just say voila take it or leave it.
    Thus the heart of the Democrat economic plan is that they do not need to tax anybody, just print money to pay debt, equalize incomes, equalize incomes for inflation, etc. etc.

    I will be anxious to hear of this vision surfaces more often as November draws near.

      I think the localities antifa are active at support antifa. They aren’t likely to pass laws to slow it down. Many states in US already outlaw masks on adults in public.

      But where antifa is active, the police don’t apply the laws against assault that already exist when antifa is doing the assaulting, so masks would just be an additional law for the police to ignore.

    Well, it appears that at least 40 people were shot in Chicago this weekend, with at least 9 people dead from being shot. Chicago PD responds with “increased patrols in affected areas” and “proactive policing”. You betcha the “increased patrols in affected areas” means that police officers will be taken away from the “safer” neighborhoods and put on patrol in the “less safe” neighborhoods. Translation: the evildoers will simply move into the formerly-“safer” neighborhoods.
    Haven’t heard anything about how the chaos in Chicago must be laid at the feet of RAHM EMANUEL, the so-called Mayor of Chicago. Instead, what will happen will be more calls for “commonsense gun control” and further restrictions on the exercise of the Second Amendment by the law-abiding in Chicago. Just like HILLARY CLINTON, Rahm Emanuel will never have to answer for his neglect of duty.
    Might be a good idea to send RAHM EMANUEL into the crime-ridden areas of his city WITHOUT his armed bodyguards to watch him try and talk his way back into safety. And record the whole thing to put up on social media.

                The SAD thing is…
                All these calls to let Congress (and the American people) see documents are about confirming the need for a PROPER CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION… and that could and should have been underway already. Whether documents are made public now or not. After a year and a half these documents should form part of the body of “Discovery” before the courts. And the perps should be locked up while we discuss it and the evidence is evaluated in court.

                  Are you seriously so out of the loop that youre unaware that last year Sessions secretly appointed Huber to prosecute the DC criminals? Huber has much more power than a Special Counsel with a staff of over 470 compared to Muellers 17. You are aware that prosecutors never talk about what theyre up to because they dont want to tip off their targets, right? The fact that there have been zero leaks is a great sign. Huber has been reporting directly to Sessions and coordinating with Horowitz.

                  Are you aware there have been zero results? Are you that out of the loop?

                  Where are the prosecutions of those whom Congress referred, nearly four months ago?

                  Is Sessions controlling a rogue DAG? Has he expressed anything other than indifference regarding corruption in his department? Has any of that corruption be prosecuted?

                  The SoS’s email/documents were found on Weiner’s electronics. The security of those documents is the responsibility of the SoS. Have either Clinton or Weiner been prosecuted for this?

                  The fact that there have been zero indictments is an awful sign. His department is obstructing justice, he is ignoring felonies committed by his department, and gives every indication of protecting an ongoing seditious conspiracy by his department against Trump.

                  Sessions has even go so far as to announce his full support of and confidence in Rosenstein in DEFENCE of him refusing to make documents available to Congress and as a counter to Jim Jordan et al proposing Impeachment/contemt.

                  I is RIDICULOUS to imagine that Sessions is “working away in secret” Sessions has repeatedly stated in public, and even UNDER OATH to Congress that he considers himself RECUSED from all matters relating to Russia, the Trump Campaign or the 2016 election. Sessions has sated he believes his recusal to be absolute… even beyond any hint of a conflict area. To IMAGINE that in secret he is directing Huber investigations of corruption into those areas is contrary to what Sessions himself said to Congress under oath. It is not happening. Sessions letter to Congress described Huber as REVIEWING the OIG report and making “recommendations” . That is all. No mention of running a “parallel proper criminal investigation”… that notion GREW online amidst blog comments and conspiracy tweets.

                  IF Huber did actually make any recommendations to Sessions following release of the OIG report… the recommendations fell on deaf ears… nothing happened. Not surprising really because the recommendations would have been in Ole Jeff’s recused zone.. so he would have been duty bound to stick his fingers in his ears and go “Lalalala”

    I never thought I would see this day in America….

    “On the morning of August 2, 2018 a letter written by Portland Jobs with Justice, and signed by a dozen local labor leaders was delivered to the office of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler. The letter is in support of Mayor Wheeler’s actions keeping Portland’s law enforcement resources from being used to assist ICE in policing first amendment protests that took place last month at the Portland ICE office against the federal administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy and the detention of immigrant children. The letter from labor leaders was prompted by Mayor Wheeler’s receipt of a letter from ICE that was critical of the mayor’s decision and actions.”

    Who’s paying for LeBron James’ new I Promise school? LeBron or Akron Public Schools

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/articles.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2018/08/whos_paying_for_lebron_james_n_1.amp

    From the article.

    The exact breakdown of expenses for the new I Promise School is unclear, since the district and the LeBron James Family Foundation are still sorting out final details of their contract. But the district will pay more than half the costs – perhaps around 75 percent – once it is fully running.

    On September 21, 2016, the Daily Mail published an article claiming that Weiner had engaged in sexting with a 15-year-old girl. It’s not known how the Daily Mail learned of this incident as in the Daily Mail article and this article was used as reason for the FBI and NYPD to begin investigating Weiner. Devices owned by Weiner and Abedin were seized as part of the investigation into this incident. Emails pertinent to the Hillary Clinton email controversy were discovered on Weiner’s laptop,

    SO ALL THE EVIDENCE THAT WAS DESTROYED LIKE CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN. PAY TO PLAY. URANIUM ONE. AND MAYBE EVEN HOW THE ELECTION WAS BEING RIGGED. UNMASKING SPYING THE WHOLE ENCHILADA is now in FBI’s hands

    What we now know from the declassified documents is that the FBI submitted the Page application to the FISC in October 2016,

    Sessions/Rosenstein/POTUS fire a new it was coming Comey who’s job now is to prompt a Special Councel which was the next day Mueller, who is not adding retracting discussing rinse repeat questions for POTUS or painstakenly going over POTUS tweets to find some criminal action.. STUPID.. Or on the brink of arresting Donald Jr for taking a meeting. Cohen has 125 hours of tapes from unsuspecting journalist anchors and his office needs to be raided so they can do whatever they plan to do with them.. So a pretend shaking in his boots Cohen who any second could be indited for all kinds of nothing hires Hillarys weird attorney friend Lanny Davis to save him from going down with POTUS .. Hillary who has no politial power and is a disgraful mess still thinks Mueller will compose a Russian Collusion and she cannot wait to be sworn in as the President of the world . YAK YAK
