    Vote republican or vote for civil chaos and collapse. Interesting to live at a time of such mortal peril for the country. If enough people can’t figure out the stark dichotomy, we probably don’t deserve to keep America.

      Why does President Trump and the First Lady agree to sit down with the demon mainstream media?
      Hack Stahl oozes evil intentions and hatred of Trump.

        If PTrump only sat for interviews with, say, Fox and OANN, then the vast majority of an audience that PTrump wants to reach would not be exposed to him.

        If, however, he periodically accepts interviews with some of the fake news outlets, I believe that in spite of their best efforts to portray him in a bad light, many of the positive aspects of PTrump himself and of his programs, particularly the successes of his programs, will still shine through the fog and be received by numbers of people who do not yet count themselves among the ranks of the Deplorables.

        Why did they have Kavanaugh hearings and why did they have that farce supplemental hearing? Simple. It works. For some, their confirmation bias continues to convince them of what they already believe. But for a growing number of people, their beliefs are shifting away from the support of the media and the Democrat party.

        The self-pleasuring media are patting themselves on the back while growing numbers are looking at then for what they really are. The media has non clothes and this is just more exposure.

      First off you can tell Trump has control of that interview.

      Second you have the most powerful man in front of you and you ask about climate change?

      A 60 minutes hit piece by hack Lesley Stahl. Disgraceful and disrespectful interview – her hatred of President Trump was palpable. Proud of POTUS for swatting her off at every turn.

      It does more good than harm. People get to see the media expose themselves and after a couple of years of this I think people are much more attuned to media games.

        And to prove your point, why isn’t the story about the missing, fake WaPo journalist going anywhere? Why doesn’y anyone really give a crap about what Flake or Bernie think about this fake news? Because after years of having their intelligence insulted by the media, the ‘woke’ public is saying Enough!!
        (As for Stahl, she’s always been a lightweight. She did not impress).


        • rbrtsmth says:

          I’ll be honest and it might say more about me than anything else, I would not cancel $100+ billion plus of orders. And also tank the relationship of the one of the most powerful allies the US has in an important region of the world for the murder of someone such as Khashoggi. It would be so easy to freeze the US in place. Opponents of Trump and the US are looking for leverage anywhere they can find it.

          Stahl would have been more effective if she didn’t do a solo 30-minute version of a daily press briefing.

      We only made it to 10 mins–had to turn to another channel—the degree of hate thrown at our President Trump was more than we could handle tonight and ……this usual chronic interruptions and the usage of negative words to twist the truth. . The degree of hate has gone up hundred-fold.
      I applaud to all Treepers who brought out their iron-lined stomach, to watch to the end of this “interview” which was more of an attempt in character assassination.

      As usual this Fake News is carrying on with their Evil agenda.
      Dear Fake News–
      We see you. You do not fool us one iota. Good luck losing more sleep tonight.
      You. Are. Irrelevant.
      New Rule–We win…you lose.

      Never Your Truly,
      From The Trump Supporters.

      Trump has a strong urge to kibitz with these people and does I think harbor illusions about reasoning with them. He’s too nice.


      • dallasdan says:

        They are too ignorant and enraged to understand that his politeness is an insult to them, similar to a sophisticated gentleman fending-off an illiterate and obnoxious intruder to his intelligent conversation at a formal affair.

        They still don’t realize that he is, by a wide margin, smarter than they are, and they insist on trying to score at least one point in a blowout loss. Or, they know they are grossly outclassed intellectually, and continue their aimless jousting anyway. I’m leaning toward the latter being true; their collective ignorance is more obvious each day.

        Disagree; He’s under no illusions as to the nature of the beast.
        As she said in the after interview, he’s constantly aware of THE AUDIENCE. And the portion of the audience that are potential walkaways, are NOT watching marie b., on faux.

        They are watching 60 minutes, on cbs. So, like willy sutton robbing banks, cause “thats where the $ is”, DJT is going where he can ‘steal’ voters from the dems.

        And, since hes been warring with the press from day 1, and WINNING, wouldnt criticise the strategy,…but thats me.

    I thought Trump did great in the 60 mins interview. I don’t know why Leslie stahl bothered to ask questions if all she was going f to do is talk over him and cut him off. One of my favorite parts was when she asked if he had any regrets and he said yes, I would have liked to handle NAFTA sooner. She was obviously looking for some juicy gossip and she got something completely unexpected.

    Big polls out of MInnesota!

    Karin Housely within striking distance

    I believe Minnesota is going shock the world in November. They missed out on being the story in 2016, instead of PA, WI and MI. But I believe in 2018, they will find their rightful among the Midwest states that are leaving the Dems behind in favor of Trump. USMCA is a big deal, a big promise kept and I think it will pay major dividends for Trump in 2018 and 2020.

    Send some support ($$$) to Karin Housely! MAGA!!

    It is a shame that FOX have gone for a “twofer” with Juan Williams.

    They wheel him out all day long as both a token black and a liberal talking point propagandist. They have this daft notion that “balance” requires a dishonest liberal view no matter what the facts are? By using a black to do this they give the impression that stupid liberal notions are linked to being black. It does blacks a disservice!! Of course liberals are a lost cause so no disservice is done to them… but really they are surplus to requirement since they have the rest of MSM… Fox needs to wise up!!

        God, I hope he wins.

        I have to say tho, Stabby is doing better than I thought she might in articulating her positions. Was hoping she’d be an “uh..uh…uh…” kind of debater, cuz James is good at stating his positions. But, so is she…..so far anyway.


    • sunnydaze says:

      James is doing a great job re. Immigration. Stabenow *tried* to do a “good job” and *almost* succeeded, but James did a good job of pointing out the holes in her argument, in a VERY polite/civil fashion.

      James is really hitting his stride now. He was a tiny bit nervous to start. Which was interesting cuz I’ve never seen him like that.

      But he’s over it!!!

      Unfortunately, nothing much seems to rattle Stabby.

        Saw that nervousness too sunny. She’s a professional politician, lying and steady. Wish James would have embraced MAGA/Trump more, but I guess he knows how he has to play it.

        He did well, she was canned, imo.

    Still looking into Blasey BS and ran across a funny development.

    The attorney who wrapped up the Blasey’s foreclosure sale is now partner at Nixon Peabody. Check out their website. Notice the Eschoo feature:

    Originally recorded June 21, 2018 but posted on 9/21 (recall on 9/20 Kavanaugh immediately responded to Grassley’s scheduling of a hearing for the 24th.) A little bit ballsy, no? They could have posted anything, but happened to throw this particular horseshoe onto the pile!


    Now check out Kelly’s publications:

  24. What Trump said was 100% historically accurate about General Robert E. Lee. He was a great General and Honorable man. Historians from that period and today said at the end of the war he was looked up favorably by North and South. People who love and care about American resonate with what Trump said.
