There is no Republican Party under Trump. Just a King and his disciples doing his bidding. The Party of Lincoln and Reagan has long gone.

...while the Democrat Party remains the same...the party of enslavement.  A "King and his disciples"?  Get real, man.

Trump's latest showing at CPAC clearly shows a man unhinged.

Ha...

Are you a representative of the S.P.L.C.?

Yeah, I just heard Trump outlining his new defensive strategy at the CPAC conference.  While describing allegations against him as bullshit (sic.) might be effective in rallying the cult legionares, I doubt it'll rate as much much more than an embarrassed giggle in the SDNY.

Unlike MAGA rallies, in court rooms facts do matter which is why it will eventually be problematic for Trump and his cronies.
At worst, Trump would likely have to pay a fine.

You really should stop looking to Fox & Friends for your legal advice.  :laugh:
It would be quite the stretch that Trump gets anything significant in this Stormy Daniels check case. It's really hard to prove and the past penalties have usually been fines or probation.

What, do you seriously think he's facing 5-10 years over this?

Indeed Martini, it would be quite the stretch to suggest that Trump's legal jeopardy in the SDNY jurisdiction is limited to campaign finance violations wouldn't it .  :laugh:

Fox News’ Chris Wallace raised a question Friday about why the CIA and White House officials were reportedly dead-set against granting top security clearance to Jared Kushner, son-in-law of President Donald Trump.

“You have to ask yourself ... what was it that these people were so concerned about?” Wallace asked

Quote
Security officials, Kelly and White House counsel Don McGahn were determined to continue to oppose “something they knew the president wasn’t going to like — refusing to give a top-security clearance to Jared Kushner,” said Wallace.

Hmmm...

The House Judiciary Committee will seek documents from more than 60 people and organizations as it begins investigations into possible obstruction of justice and abuse of power by President Donald Trump, the panel's chairman said on Sunday.

Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler told ABC's "This Week" the panel wanted to get documents from the Department of Justice, the president's son Donald Trump Jr. and Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, among others.

"We are going to initiate investigations into abuses of power, into corruption ... and into obstruction of justice," Nadler said. "It's our job to protect the rule of law."

2 hours of nonsense from trump.  it became blatantly obvious from the attendants reactions that they don't have a brain cell between them.  and that picture of him hugging the flag?!?!?!  i'm happy that i have MAKA on my computer, but it only works in google and not firefox.

Large swaths of America appear to be suffering from a debilitating condition known as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Derangement Syndrome (AOCDS). Symptoms include bouts of extreme condescension, an inability to stop sputtering the word “socialist”, and overwhelming anger that a young woman of colour is unapologetically succeeding.

The latest conservative to succumb to AOCDS is Grace-Marie Turner, the president of a non-profit devoted to “counter[ing] the march towards toward government-controlled medicine”. (Can we just pause for a moment and contemplate what sort of person spends their life trying to ensure there will never be affordable healthcare in the United States?)

On Tuesday Turner ranted in the Wall Street Journal that Ocasio-Cortez “has little regard for the system that made it possible for her to be elected to Congress”. Turner also lamented that the congresswoman “leads a generation of young people to take pride in their ignorance – of the laws of nature, of history, of the Constitution, of the eternal battle for freedom – and still succeed”.

As you can imagine, the congresswoman had a few words to say in response to this, tweeting on Thursday that: “I guess WSJ Editorial Page takes pride in their ignorance of our nation’s history of slavery, Jim Crow, & mass incarceration; willful doubt on the decades of science on climate change; targeting of indigenous peoples, and the classist, punitive agenda targeting working families.”

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/02/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-republicans-ignorance

so basically now, american conservative = no-brained dumbass.

Trump is wagering that a personal relationship with the person is essential. With a Korean person, that's not a bad guess.

are you erroneously suggesting that trying to have a personal relationship with Kim might in some way be the same as it would be with any other Korean person?  you've written a lot of stupid contrary nonsense before, but that is a new one.

They've become a coalition of different groups with different agendas. What unites them is their hatred of white conservatives.

For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the “walk.” Never done when a president is overseas. Shame!

donald trump - 10:01 AM - Mar 4, 2019

who is the liar and fraudster he's talking about now? is this the summit you did no planning for as you have a 'great relationship' with your 'friend' Kim Jeong Eun?  a new low in American politics is absolutely impossible.

Snowflakes just don't have the mental capacity to see these things...(BTW...the LGBT should not be a civil rights matter.  Its a choice...but, being white, black, hispanic, etc., is not).  In addition, African-Americans do not constitute a race..they are a nationality, snowflakes.  And, it is OK to NOT really feel the need to pander and embrace African-American culture (or at least, modern African-American culture).  Personally, I give it two thumbs down.  But, that does not mean black folks in England and France ac the same as those in the U.S., or in parts of Africa. 

Angry, indoctrinated, titty-baby snowflakes everywhere....(new generation).

There is nothing ironic about snowflakes and indoctrination. 

Those in history have fallen for it before....it is happening again. 

Speaking of "happening again", it seems the losers that once trolled the "current events" forum on Dave's ESL Cafe have taken camp here....doing what they do, spreading their toxic nonsense.

Nothing ironic, for those who actually know their history, for the dominant to do all they can to continue to suppress the less powerful.

That's what has got your dander up. Minorities in the US have acquired political clout and are using it to assert their civil rights.
