Gotta love our Leader. Who needs to follow the teachings of Jesus when we have someone almost just as good right here on earth preaching the gospel.

Donald Trump refers to incident 'last night' in Sweden that didn't happen and blames it on migrants

The President left the Swedish press baffled after name-dropping the country along with others that have experienced terror attacks

Look at all of the foreigners taking over Sweeden


In English: This happened in Sweden Friday night, Mr President

NYHETERigår  17:00
U.S. president Donald Trump gave a speech in Melbourne, Florida, Saturday evening.
While speaking about keeping America safe he mentioned the major terrorist attacks in Nice, Paris and Brussels – and in the same sentence he pointed out an unspecified event in Sweden Friday evening.
”You look at what happened last night in Sweden”, he said.
Mr President, here is what happened in Sweden Friday night:

3:24 PM (local time): A man set himself on fire at Sergels torg, a plaza in central Stockholm. He was taken to the hospital with severe burns. There is so far no information on his motives but the intelligence service is not part of the investigation.
6:42 PM: The famous singer Owe Thörnqvist had some technical problems during rehearsal for the singing competition ”Melodifestivalen”. (However, the 87 year old singer still managed to secure the victory the very next day.)
8:23 PM: A man died in hospital, after an accident in the workplace earlier that day in the city of Borås.
8:46 PM: Due to harsh weather in the northern parts of Sweden the road E10 was closed between Katterjåkk and Riksgränsen. Due to strong winds and snow in the region the Met office also issued an avalanche warning.
12:17 AM: Police officers initiated a chase for a fleeing Peugeot through central parts of the Swedish capital of Stockholm. The pursuit ended in police officers ramming the suspect at Engelbrektsgatan. The driver is now accused of driving under the influence, traffic violation and car theft.
11:23 AM: Ok, let’s not be fake news, this story took place in the autumn, but was reported Friday before lunch and we thought you would like it. A wooden moose got the attention of a lovesick moose bull. It all happened in 79 year old Ove Lindqvist’s garden in Byske outside Skellefteå, northern Sweden. ”I thought it was going to start a fight, instead it humped the wooden moose thrice”, he said.

So surprise toll has not sold out phase 1 homes in both alta vista and bella vista. 
compare to HC when it first released its phase 1 homes, they  were sold out before it was released. In fact, there was a priority list for early phases in HC...
goes to show how different  HC compares to OH..

What does " fake news. " even mean - I am not providing any " news" here .  just stating my opinions, along side a few facts , and also mentioning where I could be wrong and where I hope I am wrong for the sake of the country.   Unlike you I am not parroting the language of my all-powerful "cult leader ".

I get it. So you are not spreading fake news as if you have proof of what you said, but you are making things up? Because the sources and links you provided are totally unrelated to what you said regarding the AG is going to suppress votes from young voters and majority of Floridians and people from the Midwest of 55+ voted Trump.

Anyways, your opinions cannot be taken seriously other than far-left entertainment. Tell you what, we have a President, it's not Hillary, so whining about who voted for Trump is a waste of time at this point. Making this country great is about creating good jobs, improving our economy, improving confidence of our future, securing our border, so our citizens and children are safe from crime and narcotics easily ship over from Mexico, implementing a better healthcare system for all, make ourselves strong again globally. The President is doing everything he said prior to being elected.

Initially thought courtyard design would be a waste of space but provides a lot of natural light, helps avoid feeling of being in a cave. 

Too bad they all sit on the usual tiny lots.

Fake News ... How about a Fake TV Station :)

During President Trump’s strenuous and freewheeling news conference on Thursday, there emerged a brief respite from the pointed questions about Russia, national security, immigration policy and chaos at the White House.

“Mr. President,” a reporter began, “Melania Trump announced the reopening of the White House Visitors Office. And she does a lot of great work for the country as well. Can you tell us a little bit about what first lady Melania Trump does for the country?”

Mr. Trump lowered his combative tone. “Now, that’s what I call a nice question,” he said. “That is very — who are you with?”

The answer — UNF News — barely registered with Mr. Trump.

“Good,” the president said. “I’m going to start watching, all right?”

UNF News is not a television network or a radio network, for that matter. UNF, or Universal News Forever, is the baby, identity, passion and obsession of Kyle Mazza, 19, who posed the question about Mrs. Trump.

UNF News, Mr. Mazza said in an interview on Friday, was his “own news station that I started when I was 8 years old.”

If Mr. Trump were to start paying attention to UNF News, it would be a start: The network has neither advertisers nor subscribers.

(stereotype warning ahead) that base is made up heavily of rural seniors (more generally 55+) that are the highest  voting % among all age groups and are concentrated in states like Florida and in the midwest.  they  get their news primarily from fox (hannity is their favorite) and from Facebook from like minded circles. 

I expect jeff sessions (new AG)  to work extra hard to make voting as difficult as possible for younger voters in metro and urban areas.  I hope I am wrong.

older voters are also why I think  Newport Beach was an island of red in a sea of blue last November

Where are the sources to back up your claims? Until then, you have mastered the Fake News!

Also, this from last year

U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson suggested he would strike the entire law if he were not bound by the Supreme Court’s decision that states may use properly written voter-ID laws to guard against voter fraud.

“The evidence in this case casts doubt on the notion that voter ID laws foster integrity and confidence,” Peterson wrote. “The Wisconsin experience demonstrates that a preoccupation with mostly phantom election fraud leads to real incidents of disenfranchisement, which undermine rather than enhance confidence in elections, particularly in minority communities. To put it bluntly, Wisconsin’s strict version of voter ID law is a cure worse than the disease.” The state will appeal both rulings.

In the North Carolina case, the 4th Circuit panel agreed with allegations that North Carolina’s omnibus bill selectively chose voter-ID requirements, reduced the number of early-voting days and changed registration procedures in ways meant to harm blacks, who overwhelmingly vote for the Democratic Party.

“The new provisions target African Americans with almost surgical precision” and “impose cures for problems that did not exist,” Judge Diana Gribbon Motz wrote for the panel. “Thus the asserted justifications cannot and do not conceal the State’s true motivation.”

The piece regarding voter ID law you are quoting has nothing to do with you claims that majority of Trump supporters are seniors in rural counties. Many congressional districts where Trump won were supporting Obama in the last election. And what does your voter ID piece has to do with our AG?

Fake News confirmed. I think you are confuse, better take a break from posting.

Perfect - you said it yourself,  many Trump voters flipped from Obama.  But many are still supporting him .  Take a look at the attached Pew poll ( maybe you will scream polls are fake, but thats alright )

As to not posting, maybe you started this thread as a "safe space" for Trump supporters like yourself .  But this a public forum and some of the nonsense being spewed needs to be counteracted. 

What does " fake news. " even mean - I am not providing any " news" here .  just stating my opinions, along side a few facts , and also mentioning where I could be wrong and where I hope I am wrong for the sake of the country.   Unlike you I am not parroting the language of my all-powerful "cult leader ".

Thanks for the update. Hopefully it's good retail for us! Also, nice to meet you neighbor! It looks like whatever is going in the corner has its own entrance cause there is a ramp going towards Great Park Blvd. Also, I'm sure they'll make it look nice. I don't think the affordable housing is that bad. I moved from the Northern Va area - Falls Church and at least over there the affordable housing was mainly setup for teachers and public servants. I know it can be hard to live in Irvine if you're a teacher. I'm not sure how these things work here.

Side note, when do you think Google Maps will have our streets and addresses showing in their databases? LOL

Awesome Fxguy! We ended up buying a Plan 3 at Tristania so we'll be neighbors! I asked about Base Camp, recently, while visiting some of the Parasol Park models.  It looks like they are going to curve Great Park Blvd and include some shopping/retail for the GP community.  The retailers will be facing the neighborhood so if you're on Great Park Blvd, you'll be facing the back of the retailers.  From the sounds of it, it's going to be pretty awesome and should be completed by 2018.

The corner of Ridge Valley and Great Park, inside CVE, will be affordable housing, unfortunately.  It was almost a deal-breaker for us but hope that whatever they put up will look pretty clean.  They didn't mention it until we were deep in the sales contract, signing the disclosures. You should have had to sign something about it.

They're also supposed to be building some retail on the corner of Sand Canyon and Great Park Blvd, next to Avella. We'll see what's going on there.  Overall, I think CVE is going to be awesome being so close to the Ice Rink, shopping and Great Park.  When Great Park is built out, it should be great! I'm also looking forward to it with my little ones!  :)
