Epic – Reporter Complains About Social Distancing, POTUS Responds: “It’s a peaceful protest”…

This was a rather funny and epic moment from President Trump’s press conference in Bedminster, New Jersey.   A member of the press pool complains that the room is not following NJ rules on social distancing.  President Trump reminds the reporter that political activity is excluded and this is a form of “peaceful protest”.  lol

    This was brilliant.

    One…the conniving Governor, and maybe other governors have placed ‘Carve-outs’ for what they think is to benefit Antifa and left-wing political operatives. Notice that churches are still locked down.

    Two…PT can throw this back at all of them by holding rallies in every state in which this carve-out exists!!!!!!

    See y’all at a rally in Lyndhurst, Newark Airport, and any other place where there is a ‘carve-out’!!!!!!!

      Trump was looking good tonight. Seems like he has a clear path forward and not weighted down wrestling with decisions.

      He has the dems on the ropes. Whatever Trump does for the people via executive order, the dems will lose by fighting it. Perfect.

        He is smooth as SILK. He was on top of his game at this presser. I said when I watched this earlier that he will use the PEACEFUL PROTEST strategy employed by the D RATS to start having his rallies in September. He is going to throw it right back in their faces.

            The reason that Cuomo and Schmucker turned around is that without NYC being stabilized, NYS is BLEEDING tax revenues. And I am seeing a lot of for sale signs in my county. Soon, they will have no one to dictate to.

Although nobody has ever questioned me or ordered me to wear a mask, I have to admit there are times when it is a very uncomfortable feeling. I’m usually a go-with-the-flow kind of person, so this is very new to me. But the stakes are too high. I have children and grandchildren who will be living in this nightmare dystopia they have planned for us if we don’t fight back. I had planned to use the “respiratory issues” exemption because the mask IS bad for my breathing. But maybe I’ll just say I’m peacefully protesting instead.

          I agree, I use it as little as possible, when I go to my local grocery store I go as soon as it opens when nobody is there. I flew for the first time since all this started and had an interesting experience. On the 4 hour flight we had two male attendants and they could not have been nicer. I basically my mask around my ankles, they never said a word. On my 1 hour flight to parts unknown we had two “Karens” who were marching up and down the aisle making sure the mask was over your nose.

          Easy way around this is to have a bottle of water and take sips often. Took me the entire flight to finish a 6 ounce bottle. Also going through TSA, after you show them your license you have to drop your mask to identify yourself. This whole thing is a bunch of crap.

        Hold a peaceful protest against mask wearing at the rodeo. Be sure to bring signs, and take photos to document any official resistance. They’ll try to pounce on just one or two people, but they’ be forced to back off from a sizable crowd. I’m guessing the event is being televised live or recorded for later broadcast, so be sure to make a good showing. Make this a “By the rude bridge that arched the flood, their flags to April’s breeze unfurled” moment by using their own tactics against them. Wash, rinse, repeat.

        I have friends named Karen. I don’t make the association when I use their names, and I don’t think others do either because “karen” has become a word in and of itself. It’s like when you use the names Rose, Joy, May, June, Autumn, etc. you don’t automatically correlate them with the other meaning of the word. I think the only time you make the association is when “Joy” is grumpy or “Karen” is complaining to the manager….but other than that….. So your memories and our friends are safe. No need to take it personally.

Look at Taylor Swift, for example; she’s now getting “political”, they say, but still always in one artsy, sexy costume or another for the ubiquitous fan photo ops…so cute (for those who don’t like her, I’m KIDDING, KIDDING…but she IS, that’s her profession, after all…I remember when Raquel Welch visited Cavuto, I think it was, and he complimented her on how beautiful she still looked, around 80…she said, “But it’s my job” to look that good…the true professional).

        And you’re still allowed to like the music you like…but not most of the junk today, please(!) /s/s/s

    It would be a good time for President Trump to reign-in the CDC, NIH and the guy running the HHS to end the Coronavirus dumpster fire. Every one knows that the only reason “cases” have been increasing is because we are testing millions of people, most in parking lot drive-by testing, people without symptoms, without prescriptions and without paying for the test. On top of that the CDC’s own website classifies the deaths as DEATHS INVOLVING COVID-19. It doesn’t say deaths FROM Covid-19 and there’s the give-away to the continued dumpster fire. It needs to end and Donald J Trump is President of the United States last time I checked!

    I had a long conversation with my brother in law a few years ago. He’d just played a bit of soccer with my son. My son wasn’t really interested and I was disappointed that he didn’t want to play.

    I should tell you that my brother in law was All American and was offered a spot on the Olympic Team in 1980.
    We talked about what makes a CHAMPION.
    He said the most important thing to him was doing everything, EVERYTHING possible to make sure he was the best player on the field. The amount of drive that takes is almost inconceivable.
    Here’s a good list of traits:

    1. Big Dreams
    2. Extreme Confidence
    3. The Willingness To Learn
    4. Extraordinary Determination and Commitment
    5. Take Massive and Consistent Action
    6. The Passion Is The Key

        The press IS indeed the propaganda arm of the demonRAT Party.

        That has been true since at the least the JFK years, when they invented Camelot.

        In those days, the most influential members of the fourth estate conspired to cover up the realities of all of the national crises that were occurring as a result of JFK’s crowd being a bunch of elitist university types who had no clue as to how the world actually worked.

        In later years, Hugh Sidey (TIME) and Ben Bradlee (Wash. Post) separately admitted not only were they solidly in JFK’s corner, smoothing over every mistake their idol committed, but they were consciously manufacturing a glowing myth where actually there existed a out-of-touch, not-too-bright and largely drugged-up zombie. Truman and Eisenhower both shuddered at JFK’s gross lack of judgment in facing off against Khrushchev in the Cuban missile crisis. It was hardly the era for a President who needed so much on the job training, but you’d never gather that by reading TIME or Wash. Post of the era.

        For example, we later learned that Jack didn’t pen “Profile in Courage.” Many reporters knew it full well at the time yet still played JFK up as a great author.

        Of course, the Pulitzer was never revoked.

        The demonRAT technique hasn’t been just to cover up the truth (in PT-109’s case, Capt. JFK’s crew were all asleep), but to convert the facts into the exact opposite of what actually happened. So in Camelot myth, Kennedy saved his whole crew (except for one) singlehanded. Hell, they even made a suck-up movie about it starring Cliff Robertson.

        The press knew at the time that JFK’s dad stole the 1960 Presidential election for his son, but refused to cover it. Instead, they played up everything bad they could find or invent on Nixon, who reviled them for it ever afterward. Reagan and Trump also learned through hard firsthand experience how in-the-tank our so-called “journalists” are for demonRATs.

        Seventeen years before the election was stolen from Nixon, hell-for-leather but famously self-promoting Lieutenant General George S. Patton Jr. also learned the hard way during the overhyped slapping incidents of August 1943 the lengths to which the American press would go to wring the last advertising dollar out of a story. That other famous Republican general from a different war, W.T. Sherman, had this to say about reporters: “I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are. If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world, but I am sure we would be getting reports from Hell before breakfast.”

    President Trump used most of the 13 rules from Alinsky’s list of “Rules for Radicals” in his press conference, but particularly:

    Rule 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
    You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.

    Rule 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”.
    It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.

    Rule 12: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
    Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
    (Ref. Kayleigh McEnany, always well prepared to refute/ridicule the day’s fake news talking points. Trump was well prepared for this one.)
