So correct me if I’m wrong… the spin out of the White House from looks closely noted liar Rudy Giuliani is that we shouldn’t trust the word of noted liar Michael Cohen, a man who has spent his adult life looks at resume serving as the attorney for noted liar Donald Trump.
.
It’s like if the Three Stooges invaded the White House.

I figure Cohen has the receipts as in tapes to back himself up. Mr. 9/11 a noun and a verb has become nothing short of a laughingstock. My friends in NYC are thrilled that Giuliani is finally being exposed for what they have known for a long time. The “America’s Mayor” narrative is swirling the drain and they couldn’t be happier about it.

I used to surf in Georgia and Florida. This video is amazing, a 1.5 km ride on a single wave in South Africa with 8 barrels. “Barrels” are when the wave completely covers you.
From the surfer’s point of view:

The North Shore is nothing like Honolulu and that part of the island. It gets pretty rural in a hurry, after you go over the mountains and pass the Polynesian Cultural Center. I’ve even seen chickens walking across the road near the little store at the very north end.

And if you really want rural, give Molokai a try — it has only one red-light on the whole island. Hang loose, Bro!

Poll question.

Say documented proof comes out that Trump/Cohen paid for an abortion for one of Trump’s side squeezes. Trump’s approval rating then drops X points. How big is X?

I can’t believe we are living to see that a nominee for President of the US is heard on tape discussing setting up a sham company in order to quietly pay off a woman with whom he had an affair in order to keep it secret. And he won. Puts the old “Obama wore a tan suit once” scandal in a whole new perspective. . Will his approval drop? Maybe 1%. Because the pedestal that Trumpistas have him on is so far above anyone else that no mere mortal sin will affect their perception. Any transgression is worth it in… Read more »

And I will rebut in advance: I know… Bill Clinton. But he was a Democrat. Republicans are supposed to be the sensitive ones about this kind of stuff. Repubs were the ones who were outraged by all that. Perhaps just goes to show that trump is no Republican.

All this proves is what the GOP was saying about Bill Clinton was just more hooey on their part. They didn’t like Clinton because he wasn’t a white nationalist. It had nothing to do with anything else.

In fact, I’ll go ahead and preview Jerry Falwell, Jr.’s eventual quote:

“We’re all flawed individuals, Sean. As we’ve seen time and time again, God is willing to work through flawed people to achieve a higher purpose. Personally, I would never finance my mistress’ abortion, but I don’t think God really cares until you’ve aborted at least 10 children.”

“Why do so many evangelicals in your opinion support Trump even though what he does is what they “profess” they are against?” It’s important that you understand that there are evangelicals and then there are people who attend church. They are not always the same. Its not up to me to judge why people do what they do, but I’ll try to explain some of it. Some of it was a hatred for Hillary.

I agree with much of Eiger’s comments about why Evangelicals voted for and stick with Trump. I think you left out one big one: Racism! The political evangelical movement has a long and sorry history with respect to race in America. Likewise, Donald Trump has a long and disgraceful history of racial discrimination in his real estate ventures. He persecuted the Central Park Five, going so far as to take out a full page ad in the NYT calling for these innocent black men to be murdered by law enforcement. Finally, he graduated to the mother of all racist movements… Read more »

I guess you don’t keep up with the news. The collusion that Donald did came out on the news last night.

Honestly, Noway, if Trump paid someone to have an abortion, you would have to admit it as a flaw. If anyone else did it, it would knock them down from “great” to “low-life” in your eyes.

Trump starts a fire in the Oval Office trying to reheat a couple of Big Macs. When the DC fire department responds, Trump bitches about the cost of all those fire trucks.

Ok, now that we’ve got both sides using the term, I think it would be incredibly helpful if I provided a little law-splainer on the “collusion” issue. . The focus of the Mueller investigation is not collusion because collusion is not a crime per se. Trump uses this term because he’s a moron. Other people have latched onto the term because he uses the term. Robert Mueller is likely not using this term. . Lying to federal investigators is a crime. Senior members of Trump’s campaign and his administration have already plead guilty to said crime. . Obstruction of justice… Read more »

So your evidence, to support your position, is a Fox News clip of the opinion of a former FBI assistant director who retired in 20 years ago and has worked for Fox/Limbaugh ever since, and was a Trump supporter during the campaign.

That is not evidence, or support, homey. It is a hack doing what he gets paid to do.

This guy sounds out of his mind, and he also sounds like he didn’t read the FISA application. When he stated that we didn’t know if the FBI paid Source #1, and the FISA application printed early on in the document that the FBI compensated Source #1, that was a good indication that he’s making it up on the fly.

I think most of us agree that free trade is a good thing. Don’t we want better trade deals? The US and EU is 50% of the world market. No trade war, freer trade. Don’t we have all of the leverage? Why not cut better deals? Why was this not done before?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=075wnswOddA

Oh good Lord. Here is the new liberal Messiah….how is this young dimwit socialist going to fix our ills? Now folks, a whole bunch of folks on this here blog love this babe! So do you guys support this agenda!? More taxes, gut the military, a carbon tax…and God knows what?! I give up, why would anyone even bother to work in this country if these idiots were elected? Lets just sit on our rear ends and get the guaranteed minimum income that Obama and this nitwit are supporting! I hate to be ugly, but someone help explain how any… Read more »

Why was this not done before?
.
As I stated yesterday, it was, until Trump scuttled it. Please refer back to T-TIP and TPP

“There you go again” touting a Trump move to walk back a portion of his assault on free trade and then praising his attempt at a partial retreat as a victory. But his methodology on practically everything is usually an overreach followed by restatements, recriminations, and retreats. His protectionism moves have been the total opposite of free trade and not those of a fiscal conservative. You don’t believe me now labeled by this blog’s resident troll as a “lib”, then read the following from those famous libs, the Koch brothers: “The policies right now are hurting people,” Brian Hooks, president… Read more »

You’re making sense, therefore, the 33% won’t be able to understand it. Can you dumb it down by using insults, dehumanizing language in ALL CAPS and misspelled words?

Will, I think you are dead right. Trump’s tariffs are harmful on first blush. They are an in the face additional tariff to hurt the ones with the high tariffs in the first place. By eliminating those tariffs at the bargaining table we win. We were getting boned. What happened in the EU? Less tariffs. Would not have happened without the pressure. No one has applied it before. We are already in a trade war with China. We import 10x more than we send to them. We will win. They have more to lose. I want no tariffs… Tariffs are… Read more »

Would not have happened without the pressure. No one has applied it before. . The United States and the European Union were engaged in years-long discussions about a Transatlantic free trade agreement that would have zeroed tariffs and, unlike Trump, also covered agricultural goods and automobiles. Trump ended these discussions when he took office, just as he did with TPP. . I’ve corrected you on this multiple times. What you’re saying isn’t true. Obama took action on EU tariffs and, like many things when it comes to Obama, his deal was much bigger. . We are already in a trade… Read more »

It’s all about the right amygdalas, an area of the brain that’s associated with expressing and processing fear.

Ginny, thanks for the post about the 9th District ruling that actually made sense. Maybe they got tired of walking through needles and human excrement to get to their offices, because here’s another sensible thing they just did: https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/07/ninth_circuit_panel_unanimously_backs_lawsuit_against_san_jose_police_who_stood_by_and_watched_attacks_on_trump_supporters.html#ixzz5Ma0w9jpN I actually saw this on TV when it happened and was sickened by the alt-left freaks being allowed to physically attack peaceful people who were simply leaving a Trump rally and going to their cars. And of course the lamestream media bleated after-the-fact, somehow blamed it on Trump supporters — like their usual phony coverage to brainwash the public. Good thing… Read more »

Hilarious! Why does the religious right hold their nose and vote for Trump? Seriously? The leftist agenda is so hideous it has no choice!

Its anti religious, anti- family, anti- tradition, anti- US, anti- capitalism, anti-manners, anti -freedom, massive taxes, massive regulation and control, a totally negative vision of life…That’s it.

I wouldn’t take this seriously for a number of reasons:
1) It’s an opinion column in the New York Post
2) Given GOP performance among millennial and post-millennial voters, “more young people” isn’t necessarily a good thing for Republicans
3) By the time they’re old enough to vote most of the Boomers – who deserve all the blame for the current state of America’s deficit – will be gone.

By the time most puppies are a few weeks old, they open their eyes. The old saying goes that by the time an adult is 30, they become conservatives and grow out of their adolescent liberalism. You know they open their eyes…Isn’t it about that time for you Andrew? It might be more evidence that there really is a God!

B, try this. How many friends do you have? I have done this myself…How many of your friends are racists, serial liars and sexual assaulters? What number did you come up with? Or maybe what % did you come up with? So don’t those numbers just make you look like a serial liar,at least pertaining to your last statement? I don’t know you, but figure you are probably a pretty good guy. I doubt more than 1% of your friends are such reprobates. I had a hard time finding even one person that I know that is like that.
