    Donald J. Trump


    Even James Clapper has admonished John Brennan for having gone totally off the rails. Maybe Clapper is being nice to me so he doesn’t lose his Security Clearance for lying to Congress!

    tRump has no idea what America is about. What will the 35%ers do when tRump goes down, and it’s clear he’s going down.

    • david7134 says:

      You state that Trump has no idea of what America is about. Now consider that Trump was elected by Americans, and not illegals, dead people and all the others that voted for Hillary. According to you and the other brain dead, even the Russians feel Trump was better than Hillary, we have a debt for the help, if any, from the Russians as they stopped a major catastrophe. But also consider that maybe you are out of touch. In fact, considering the low opinion you hold here, I think you are the one with ideas that are not mainstream. Don’t think that is a compliment as we do respect people who think out of the box. Your problem is not thinking. Before I retired, I noted that about 80% of our patients loved Trump. The other 20% could be classified as the taker and not the makers.

      • Jeffery says:


        You’re delusional. There is no evidence that tRump garnered more votes than his opponent. tRump was helped by the Russian government. That you think that fact is salutary shows that YOU have no understanding of America.

        We are pleased to not be popular here. We suspect that most commenters here are tRump loyalists.

        Anyone, who after this afternoon still supports Donald J. Trump is an enemy of America. Period.

        The President’s Campaign Manager was found guilty on 8 felony counts.

        Cohen pleaded guilty to aiding the President of the United States of America in paying off women (and the Enquirer) for their silence.

        The President of the United States of America will likely be named an unindicted co-conspirator in felonies. Conspiracy or merely campaign finance violations?

        Mr. Trump will be forced to resign. If the Senate pushes Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the GOP will lose not only the House, but the Senate.

        • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

          Settle down, little fella, you’really the only delusional commentor here.
          And still making up shit.

          The whirlwind trial is the first to result from Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling, although Manafort’s prosecution does not relate to any election interference or alleged collusion by the Trump team with Russian officials.



        • formwiz says:

          As always, delusion, thy name is Jeffery.

          7 million fraudulent votes cast in ’16, including 5.8 million illegals. Truymp won the popular vote, but the important thing is he won the electoral College, which is the only vote that counts.

          Out of 32 original indictments, Mule Ears could only get a conviction on a quarter of them. Watch for this to go to appeal, especially with all the extracurricular nonsense.

          And Cohen’s case has nothing to do with Trump. Mule Ears handed that over to the US Attorney in NY. Cohen’s just trying to keep himself out the slammer.

          And, no, Trump will not be forced to resign, and the Rs will keep Congress.

          for somebody who claims to know what America’s about, you don’t know nothin’.

          • Jeffery says:

            Whistling past the graveyard. Good luck.

          • Jeffery says:

            And Cohen’s case has nothing to do with Trump.

            Cohen pleaded guilty (Counts 7 and 8) to campaign finance violations; under oath he implicated the “candidate” for whom he worked.

            This is certainly one reason that Trump cannot talk with prosecutors. They have Cohen’s tapes. Trump would have to lie (and already has, just not under oath) about his involvement in campaign finance violations.

            You may be right about Congress. Trump, the GOP and the Russians are working to “fix” the elections.

          • Jeffery says:

            There is NO evidence of 7 million fraudulent votes.

            Most of what Con Men believe is false. We feel sorry for you guys today.

            You should have listened…

          • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

            Even more delusional than usual but still spewing the same old shit.


    • formwiz says:

      He knows exactly what this country is about.

      You’re the one who needs to buy himself a clue. You think this is a Communist oligarchy where the Politburo gets to dictate right and wrong.

      • Jeffery says:

        We understand that you’re angry and lashing out.

        I know that America is a democratic republic with a 250+ year history of largely trying to do the right thing. We determine right and wrong by laws and courts, not by a dictator masquerading as a president. I understand that regulated capitalism offers the best opportunity for stable societies.

        Mr. Trump just said that since this trial and Cohen’s plea were not directly related to Russia, that this amounts to a witch hunt. But Manafort and Cohen both broke laws.

        President Trump should resign. Today’s verdict and pleas were minor compared to what the prosecutors have in the wings. President Trump’s legal advice absolutely sucks, so he needs to be examining how to protect himself and his family. He has leverage as President that others do not have.

        • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

          President Trump should resign. 

          Maybe the nignorant angry little black fella can answer the one question everyone is asking:



          • Jeffery says:

            the one question everyone is asking:

            Everyone? Nah, just the 35% who would worship him even if he murdered someone.

            For the good of the GOP, which is circling the drain.

            To save America from the horrible ordeal that’s starting.

            Since, under oath, he was implicated in campaign finance violations, intended to help him win the election. The prosecutors also have documentation to back Cohen’s accusations, potentially even more audiotapes. The President of the United States is likely an unindicted co-conspirator in a felony. Unless his loyalists have lost all faith in the US justice system this is grounds for impeachment. And these convictions and pleas are minor compared to what’s coming.

            His Campaign Chairman, while in charge of the campaign, was found guilty of receiving millions from Russian oligarchs associated with Putin via Manafort’s Ukraine connections.

            All this before the conspiracy with the Russians has even been revealed.

            Trump should resign and save America this trauma.

          • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

            To save America from the horrible ordeal that’s starting.

            What ordeal?

            Since, under oath, he was implicated in campaign finance violations, intended to help him win the election.

            What campaign finance violations were committed and by whom?

            The President of the United States is likely an unindicted co-conspirator in a felony.

            In what felony did he co-conspire?

            All this before the conspiracy with the Russians has even been revealed.

            So far no evidence has been revealed that Trump conspired with any Russians. Do you have any evidence otherwise?

          • Jeffery says:

            You need to look at something besides FOX and Breitbart.

            It’s all out there.

          • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

            Since you made the accusations you should be able to answer those simple questions?
            But you can’t… why not?


          • Jeffery says:

            Asked and answered. Look through the comments and/or look online.

            FOX is talking about the illegal immigrant murdering Mollie Tibbett and tRump’s pep rally in WV, where they’re bignorantly chanting “Lock her up!!” and “Drain the swamp!!’, irony being lost on tRump loyalists.

            Note that under oath Michael Cohen, tRump’s consiglieri, admitted to felonies under the direction of then candidate tRump.

            tRump loyalists should insist that he NOT give a deposition under oath. He will commit perjury or be forced to admit to serious crimes. It’s the one thing that Rudy Giuliani is right about.

          • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

            Uh no, you didn’t answer one single question.

            Why not?


          • Jeffery says:

            Why do you think I’m obligated to answer your questions?

            Do your own research. It’s all over the interwebs.

          • drowningthepuppy says:

            Why don’t you just tear down my accusations?

          • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

            Because YOU made the accusations and YOU can’t back them up. Lol.
            Your nignorance is overwhelming.

  4. Jl says:

    “No evidence of 7 million fraudulent votes…” Just like there’s no evidence that voter ID disenfranchises anyone.

    • Jeffery says:


      We argue that because most of the studies occurred before states enacted the strictest photo identification requirements, they tend to uncover few effects. Focusing on the validated vote in recent elections using the Cooperative Congressional Election Study we are able to offer a more definitive test. The analysis shows that strict photo identification laws have a differentially negative impact on the turnout of Hispanics, Blacks, and mixed-race Americans in primaries and general elections. Voter ID laws skew democracy in favor of whites and those on the political right.

      So now where’s your evidence that 7 million fraudulent votes were cast in 2016?

      • Jl says:

        Uh, I didn’t say 7 million fraudulent ones were cast. But in your link, Richman et al (2014) found “that fully 6.4% of non-ciizens admittedl to voting.” It also found the law had no effect of general turnout. It also found that it effects people (black and white) without a high school degree more than others ( no surprise there). What you and the authors neglect is this: what other laws effect minorities more than others? Laws against killing another human being, for one. There’s a huge percapita difference between whites and blacks on homicides. By your and your liberals friends “logic” these would then be “racist” laws because they effect minorities more than others. Of course the answer isn’t that voter Id or murder laws are racist, it’s the fact that for whatever reason blacks and Hispanics murder more percapita and, if your study is correct, they for some reason have trouble obtaining something that even your authors admit is very easy to obtain. The problem lies in people’s character, not the law.

        • Jeffery says:

          You’re right! It was formwiz. You guys all sound alike to me.

          You typed “No evidence of 7 million fraudulent votes…”

          My citation presented evidence that strict voter ID laws affect minorities more than white people. You asked for evidence. There it is.

          The objective of these voter ID laws is to suppress Dem voters, not to suppress fraudulent voters.

          • Jl says:

            “You typed-no evidence of 7 million fraudulent votes.” No, I was quoting you, genius. You know how to tell that? The quotation marks.
            The only thing it’s evidence of is some groups have a harder time doing simple things. Plus, you start from the false premise that putting a restriction on a “right” is supposed to effect everyone the same. And no, it’s not to restrict Dem voters, it’s to insure election integrity. As an example said earlier, it affected those with less education more than others. Which of course would include whites.

          • Jeffery says:

            The “fraudulent voter” meme is a hoax perpetuated by the GOP to enable voter suppression.

            There is little evidence to support that fraudulent voting is an issue; just ask tRump’s functional head of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, Kansas Kris Kobach (R-KKK).

            The commission was disbanded by the Trump administration on January 3, 2018 without issuing a report. The full force of the federal government, with a commission stacked with conservative Republicans, championed by President trying to prove he won the popular vote, couldn’t find enough fraudulent votes to justify their existence.

            Previously, Kobach examined 84,000,000 votes across 22 states and found only 14 to prosecute. Is that worth disenfranchising tens of thousands of registered voters?

            Kobach kicked some 20,000 registered Kansas voters off the KS rolls – In April 2018, Kobach was found to be in contempt of court for failing to follow an order by a federal judge to notify the approximately 18,000 voters whose voting registration was being held up by Kobach that they were fully registered and could vote.

            The fraudulent voter issue is a right-wing myth to enable voter suppression. We get it. Republicans and conservatives are a minority and have to cheat to win. So in red states where they have the statehouses they gerrymander and enact voter suppression laws to consolidate their power. You may not like that but it’s the truth.

    I see the Germans have been taken over by the LGBT folk. Ledder HOusen are for men! Girls wear Dirngl!

    So wrong! But so “with it!”!

  6. Jeffery says:

    California Republican Duncan Hunter and his wife Margaret have been indicted for allegedly using $250,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses, including dental work and trips to Italy and Hawaii.

    To conceal their purchases, the Duncans misclassified purchases in their campaign finance records, labeling expenses as “campaign travel” or “dinner with volunteers” in submissions to the Federal Elections Commission.

    Hunter, along with Rep. Chris Collins of New York, were the first members of Congress to endorse Donald Trump in 2016 in his run for the presidency. Both men have now been indicted.
