• Trump is ok with Russian bounties on US troops

    From Dan Cross@3:770/100 to All on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 00:32:42
    Apparently he was briefed in March.

    But...big daddy Putin needs pleasin' so he's
    ok with the Russians paying bounties for American
    heads in Afghanistan. I'm sure Lee Lofaso is ok
    with that, too.

    Lee's on your side; he's an ex-military Democrat. You can call him General
    Lee, he probably won't mind.

    Trump is pro-military. If the story is true, then he will make Russia pay.

    Lee's on your side;

    Nah. He accused me of war crimes.

    he's an ex-military Democrat.

    Stolen valor's a bitch for Trump supporters, isn't it?

    You can call him
    General Lee, he probably won't mind.

    Well, he likes that savage Columbus, so I'm not surprised.

    Trump is pro-military. If the story is true, then he will make Russia
    pay.

    No. Trump is anti-military. He'll roll over like a dog
    for Putin again. He's known about this for MONTHS and
    done nothing.

    Don't ever presume to talk about being "pro military"
    again if you're a Trump supporter, nor to even mention
    the word "Benghazi."

    It is going to be fun auditing his tax records. Loads of fun.

    His tax records won't take any longer than Obama's birth certificate took.

    Presidential hopeful Joe Biden said reports about the orange menace

    I will congratulate Joe Biden if Trump is proven guilty of having prior knowledge to the Russian bounties and not doing something about it, because that is the only leverage that sleazy Joe could dream to have in this
    election.

    The intelligence assessments were given to Trump in February.

    If that's the case, then who's to say that the president and/or others aren't already doing things to stop it, without announcing it?

    Let's hope Nancy clears everything up for all of us.

    I like Trump, but I don't really care if he wins or not. At this point, I've had a lousy time in NY thanks to the insane state government that we've got here, so I need to stay focused on those elections.

    People from both parties can cause damage sometimes. I've got lazy
    republicans and extremist democrats to contend with. America has a right to
    be divided. You can't blame Trump for it. We were divided on these topics way before he came along.

    I know dozens of vets who are Trump supporters. You can't speak for the
    entire military.

    Obama's skeleton collection won't even fit in a closet, so there's no need to bring up Benghazi.

    How can one possibly think that this clown is a good president?

    I like him because he's on the same side of issues as me, and he cares more about the US economy than foreign economies, which is more than I can say
    about the previous 3 presidents. Clowning around is ok as long as work comes first.

    From the first day he behaved like a kid. He created the term
    "Altenative Facts" when he (and his staff) were caught lying.

    The media can't be trusted. We've seen them twist the truth to hurt the president dozens if not hundreds of times. One of the most irritating
    examples is the asian lady from CBS asking the president something, and his answer was "Go ask China" and she was like "Why? Because I'm asian?"

    Or he opens the coal industry back up, which was somewhat closed due to
    health concerns, then the media starts saying stuff like "More coal related deaths expected as Trump re-opens the coal industry." <- That's fake news.

    Democrats own the media. The only explanation for all the negative media coverage of Trump is that the media seeks to elect a Democrat this year.

    Our media is similar to that of North Korea. They have an agenda, and the agenda is not to report the news.

    I'm sure you know dozens of POGs who spent time CONUS
    or were fobbits. Congratulations.

    I'm talking about WWII, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq veterans. Thanks for
    the jargon lesson, but those words are too big for my Trump supporting brain.

    Liar. You right-wing sheep have been bleating about
    Benghazi for years now. Well, Trump's got something

    Whatever way you look at the Benghazi mishap, it made Hillary unfit for the Oval Office through the eyes of voters. We don't vote for people with a
    history of ignoring life-saving phone calls or a history of keeping
    classified information on a GoDaddy server.

    You -- yes, you specifically, but all who share your
    vile ideology -- are members of a death cult. You're
    also all hypocrites.

    What's vile about me siding with war veterans who support Trump? Hillary & Obama let Syrians gas children for years. Within months of Trump's presidency he put a foot in their asses for it. The spirits of the dead are still
    waiting for your Democrats to step in and help.

    In other words, "a bunch of POGs who've never been outside

    This is so ironic. Trump and his family have done all of that
    TIMES 10, but you still mindlessly support him.

    THAT's why I find you vile.

    You, and all the rest of the Right-wing, are hypocrites and
    liars.

    Trump pulled out troops out of Syria and let Assad continue
    his atrocities against the civilian population.

    Your lies are so transparently obvious.

    Admit it: you support Trump because you see yourself in him
    and like how he "sticks it to the libs." You'll gladly ride
    the train right off the tracks at the end of the crumbling
    bridge with him.

    Good riddance in November.

    Do you derive this from his 2-word-phrases like "America First"? The only thing that was "good for the economy" was money on loan that boosted
    stocks - most likely those he and his family hold.

    From the first day he behaved like a kid. He created the term
    "Altenative Facts" when he (and his staff) were caught lying.

    Fogive me, but this is bullshit.

    . One of the most irritating
    examples is the asian lady from CBS asking the president something, and his answer was "Go ask China" and she was like "Why? Because I'm asian?"

    Yes, that certainly proves that media cannot be trusted. Easy issue, easy thinking, easy voting. A problem of twitter democracy, but the world
    cannot be explained in 180 characters.

    Or he opens the coal industry back up, which was somewhat closed due to health concerns, then the media starts saying stuff like "More coal related deaths expected as Trump re-opens the coal industry." <- That's fake news.

    No, that is a fact. I happen to live in an area close to several coal
    power plants. Health really became less of an issue as soon as those were taken down. It is not at all as we have a good health care system here.

    Democrats own the media.

    Not our media. And certainly not the public media. Usually you do not get
    to work in the media when believing "alternative facts"

    The only explanation for all the negative media
    coverage of Trump is that the media seeks to elect a Democrat this year.

    The only explanation for the negative media all over the world is, that
    Trump is simply an idiot.

    Our media is similar to that of North Korea. They have an agenda, and the agenda is not to report the news.

    That is, again, simply bullshit you retweet. But it enables Trump
    followers to believe any bullshit they want to believe.

    It's not just them. And it is hardly likely that "Democrats own all the media" including those in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Australia,
    Canada, Chile and Argentina.

    Especially those who try their best only to report fact-checked
    information as free from bias as possible, have merely said, the
    possibility of Trump knowing about this is currently being investigated. ("Der Spiegel", Germany)

    So I believe it is you, who should not believe every brain fart this clown tweets.

    It depends on what you call "good." If you scroll back, conservatives have posted lengthy lists of things Trump's administration has done for our
    economy. But instead of being grateful, you're taking 2 knees for Anderson Cooper.

    Not our media. And certainly not the public media. Usually you do not
    get to work in the media when believing "alternative facts"

    What's public media? Each news network is either left or right; none are neutral. Are you talking about publicly broadcast media like CBS/NBC/etc?
    They all chose sides too. Telemundo even choses sides - and they are the
    fakest of all. They have illegal immigrants to appeal to - so it wouldn't
    help them much if they said anything good about Trump.

    The only explanation for the negative media all over the world is, that Trump is simply an idiot.

    Who's the idiot? The president, or thousands of people who live their lives in negativity because of the things he said?

    If you hate Trump, be glad about term limits. It's just a phase. We'll all be sucking up to China & Iran again some day, just be patient & have your money ready.

    If you reduce it to boost stocks by taking loans which means on the longer run reducing purchasing power in general, then yes you could make a few republicans happy for a couple of months or years.
    But as the great Henry Ford taught us: the even larger part of a working economy, the one that made America so successful is, that people were able
    to afford the cars they produced. Trump ignored it resp. possesses no knowledge of such things with so many letters, but yet enough shrewdness
    like his voters.
    That's his talent, make stupid people vote for him for things that
    influence their lives to the worse. No health insurance, less stability,
    less accessible education (best thing for a Trump).
    Again: easy false messages that are pleasant ("...builduh graaate wooool
    and make Magsiko pay forrid...").
    And now? 2 billion spent on that thing. No cent paid by Mexico. Illegal immigration on the highest levels since recording.
    But the hillbillies don't just not care - they do not believe this obvious fact.
    Trump's second weapon.

    Not our media. And certainly not the public media. Usually you do not
    get to work in the media when believing "alternative facts"

    What's public media? Each news network is either left or right; none are neutral. Are you talking about publicly broadcast media like CBS/NBC/etc?

    Luckily I consume media from many different countries and I work with data
    in a business environment. So I can understand facts that are more complex than "Great thing! Will make Uhmuhrica great again."
    Public media are those that are not run by private companies. In Germany
    the constitution guarantees that such media exist and must not be
    influenced by politics. Not perfect, but that makes them a reliable, since verifiable source of information (not opinion).
    Their coverage was just as distant and neutral regarding Trump as it was regarding Obama. Even when he started with his very first lie - just as
    many people had been there at his inauguration as at Obama's - they just quoted him and showed the recording that it was simply a stupid lie.
    But truly, the democrats have infiltrated the German media to produce fake news, right?

    They all chose sides too. Telemundo even choses sides - and they are the fakest of all. They have illegal immigrants to appeal to - so it wouldn't help them much if they said anything good about Trump.
    The German, French, Brazilian, African or Australian media have no benefit from talking bad about Trump. Yet they do, because that clown keeps saying and doing stupid stuff.
    Simple minded people only see the foreground messages he tweets - and
    believe them. I am asking myself how much of his school time someone has
    to spend asleep to fall for that.

    The only explanation for the negative media all over the world is, that BT>> Trump is simply an idiot.

    Who's the idiot? The president, or thousands of people who live their lives in negativity because of the things he said?
    Both.

    If you hate Trump, be glad about term limits. It's just a phase. We'll all
    be sucking up to China & Iran again some day, just be patient & have your money ready.

    Term limits are in fact a very good thing for the USA. I am not so fond of Biden either and wasn't of Hillary... yet, what this country, that still
    has my sympathy, needs now is someone reliable and smart. Trump is
    neither.

    No. What we have seen, and continue to see, are conservative
    lies and appropriations of continuations of the previous
    administration's accomplishments.

    To the extent you sorry lot ever talk about original
    accomplishments on Trump's part, it's things like building
    concentration camps for children. Yeah, I don't view that
    as much of an "accomplishment", though you probably do.

    Racist shitbag.

    Funny. I remember during the Obama administration the vitriol
    directed towards him.

    And it's still going on. Even now that Trump's been in power
    for almost 4 years, the anger and hatred directed towards the
    "left" is still visceral and regular. Have you ever read the
    comments section on Fox News? Or even seen the things that you
    guys write here on Fidonet? The quips about living in basements,
    everyone's an communist anarchist looter rioter?

    Hypocrite.

    If you hate Trump, be glad about term limits. It's just a phase. We'll
    all be sucking up to China & Iran again some day, just be patient & have your money ready.

    We're doing it right now. Trump sucks up to dictators.

    But many people are worried about Trump making a power play
    to seize dictatorial power.

    Tell me...if he does: will you stand against him? Or will
    you bend the knee to the death of America because it's your
    guy who did it?
