Sure, if she wants to, but given that she loves this country, I don’t think she will go.

Campaign rally: get her out of here. I’ll pay for your legal fees if anything happens to you, but in reality I never do. *potential excuses of not paying legal fee: your problem not mine, I never signed a contract, I was simply just joking

Sounds familiar?

Make LB great again! (Let’s go)

So looks like “send her back “ is the new chant after “lock her up “ 3 years ago at these racist trump rallies

When are the good citizens of Costa Mesa driving 20 feet high monster trucks inviting trump over here :)

Even Friedman is realizing it...run into the light!!

‘Trump’s Going to Get Re-elected, Isn’t He?’

I’m struck at how many people have come up to me recently and said, “Trump’s going to get re-elected, isn’t he?” And in each case, when I drilled down to ask why, I bumped into the Democratic presidential debates in June. I think a lot of Americans were shocked by some of the things they heard there. I was.

I was shocked that so many candidates in the party whose nominee I was planning to support want to get rid of the private health insurance covering some 250 million Americans and have “Medicare for all” instead. I think we should strengthen Obamacare and eventually add a public option.

I was shocked that so many were ready to decriminalize illegal entry into our country. I think people should have to ring the doorbell before they enter my house or my country.

I was shocked at all those hands raised in support of providing comprehensive health coverage to undocumented immigrants. I think promises we’ve made to our fellow Americans should take priority, like to veterans in need of better health care.

If you see the "Send her back" chant video from the Trump rally —  it's more horrific than you could have imagined.

There's a young girl who looks to be 12, chanting zombie-like with the rest of the crowd, taught to hate by the president of the United States

But , but tax cut ... but but .. Supreme Court but but ...

USA Today poll:

68% believe Trump’s tweets were offensive
59% believe Trump’s tweets are “un-American”
65% believe what Trump said is racist, including a plurality of Republicans (45-34%)

That 34 percent of Republicans is a well represented cohort on this forum — maybe this forum is indeed an alt right hotbed at least as far as the political discussions go.

if you're still not convinced this is a winning move for trump, read on!  thank you jake, very cool!

Quote
House Democrats appeared unified in their votes this week but I've spent the day talking to a bunch of them and many are extremely frustrated.  All agree POTUS's tweets needed to be condemned; they spoke under condition of anonymity so they could be candid. (Thread)

2/ "The president won this one," said House Dem 1 of the Trump v Squad (AOC, Tlaib, Omar & Pressley) showdown. "What the president has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks and the president has now identified the entire party with them."

3/ Another issue: what are Dems focused on? Is it what will help the class of 2018 (largely more moderate than the Squad) get reelected?

Dem Rep 2: "The president's words and actions speak for themselves. We need to focus on the issues that got them here: jobs, health care..."

4/ "...instead of the issues the president brings up deliberately. Anything that takes away from bread and butter issues is playing into his hands."

5/ Other House Democrats are conflicted about having to defend the Squad given things they've said and done. House Dems cited: talk of supporting challengers to incumbent Dems in primaries, AOC's use of the term "concentration camps," anti-Semitic comments by Tlaib & Omar.

6/ This perceived selective outrage rankled some Dems.

"Everybody was completely outraged by what the president said," said House Dem 3, "and everybody thought it was appropriate to criticize him...

7/  "...but this was the *first* time the House has taken action to criticize him in any way, We couldn't even bring ourselves to have a resolution exclusively condemning anti-Semitism uttered by one of those members" -- Omar -- "but we leapt to their defense here."


8/ A few House Dems noted that Omar and Tlaib just introduced a resolution affirming the right of Americans to boycott, perceived as an expression of support for the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divest, and sanction) movement that most House Dems oppose.

9/ "So we'll hear a tirade of attacks on Israel from the same group," said House Dem 3. "Hopefully they won't be anti Semitic."

House Dem 4 also brought up that bill coming "from someone with a history of anti-Semitism" -- Omar -- "So yeah it’s challenging."

10/  House Dem 4 recalls that "less than 2 weeks ago when members of our caucus were trying to support funds for children at the border," the Squad was arguing that "we're pro-putting kids in cages, we're against human rights. So there’s frustration."

11/ Others noted that this week the House Democratic Caucus stood by a group that is not perceived as standing by them.

"I can't tell you the number of Members who are angry and annoyed about them criticizing us," said House Dem 3.

12/ AOC, in particular "gives her chief of staff license to get candidates to run against her colleagues and to go after them on social media. It makes people's skin crawl," said House Dem 3.

House Dem 4 summed it up: "We were there for them; they should stop attacking us."

Libertarians here is your guy —

Rand Paul , voting against aid package for 9/11 first responders, because of increase in national debt ??

But he had no problem voting for billions in tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations,

Can we have trump reimburse the 340 million we have spent on his golf vacations?

Go and help make LB great again.

Eye, Thomas Freedman  has been a staff writer for the New York times for almost 38 years, he is a well known Trump hater which makes his admission so noteworthy. So sorry, I corrected the link to go directly to the New York Times website so you can read the whole article.

Thomas L. Friedman became the paper’s foreign affairs Op-Ed columnist in 1995. He joined the paper in 1981, after which he served as the Beirut bureau chief in 1982, Jerusalem bureau chief in 1984, and then in Washington as the diplomatic correspondent in 1989, and later the White House correspondent and economic correspondent.

Mr. Friedman was awarded the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for international reporting (from Lebanon) and the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for international reporting (from Israel). He also won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for commentary.

Mr. Friedman is the author of “From Beirut to Jerusalem,” which won the National Book Award in 1989. He has written several other books, including “Hot, Flat and Crowded,” an international best seller.

Born in Minneapolis, Mr. Friedman received a B.A. degree in Mediterranean studies from Brandeis University in 1975. In 1978 he received a master’s in modern Middle East studies from Oxford. His column appears every Sunday and Wednesday.

Lindsay Graham on CNN --  " If you're a Somali refugee wearing a MAGA cap, [Trump] doesnt want to send you back ... it is about the criticism "

According to Wikipedia, you made another false statement. Come on Morekas, you are dealing with a genius.

Patrick Stack of Time magazine has described the site's commentary section as "right-leaning".[16] The site has been described as being run by conservatives, and containing "opinion pieces from multiple media sources".[17] In 2009 RealClearPolitics was described as a weblog "in the conservative pantheon" by Richard Davis.[18][19]
