Still our President. MAGA!

-19 ( +15 / -34 )

During the Senate hearing many Dems spoke about a “war” going on between Ukraine and Russia. Anyone with a pulse knew it was BS and the Dems were lying, and grandstanding, even with the news that both countries had just agreed to a gas pipeline deal.

The dream is over corporate Dems. Some tried to warn you and even Pelosi was hesitant. You will lose bigly in the next election.

-20 ( +10 / -30 )

The dictatorship is looking after its own. The sycophants roar their approval and all seems well.

For now.

Some Republicans believe that this impeached potus will be chastened now and his more base and petulant instincts will be reined in.

Not a chance. Just what will he do next?

Mitt Romney's stance was brave. He committed to the oath he took and rose above the lies and partisanship. He will, of course, be vilified because of his backbone.

I don't often commend politicians in his party, and for good reason, but well said, sir.

Still our President. MAGA!

Yes, but what does this mantra actually mean?

Over the years, one has been repeatedly told just how great America is. So does this mean it stopped being great and 3 years into this debacle, it's still not great?

As ever, look forward to your interesting and enlightening reply.

Meanwhile, when do get to see the tax returns? Now that he has nothing to hide...

Cannot decide what’s worse, his dementia or his demented followers.

His followers. Like any other politician, Trump couldn't get anywhere without lots of people willing to elect him and be willfully blind to his faults. He'd be screwed right now if the US Constitution didn't allow for highly politicised Senate impeachment trials that basically put his fate in the hands of loyalists in his own party. Just consider the standards that apply to any other court, in America and elsewhere, and let it sink in.

11 ( +17 / -6 )

His slogan should be

‘Make America hate again ‘

5 ( +14 / -9 )

Acquitted. What a wonderful word and result.

-11 ( +10 / -21 )

"We went through hell, unfairly, did nothing wrong - did nothing wrong. I've done things wrong in my life, I will admit, not purposely, but I've done things wrong," he said.

Comedy gold. It's difficult to say which is more amusing, Trump's ludicrous lies or how many people actually believe him. Or don't believe him yet still support him even though he's a crook.

Anyway, the bloated fraudster was screaming and cursing with apoplectic fury at his poodle Boris Johnson this week. This really bodes well for future trade deals, doesn't it.

The dream is over corporate Dems.

A reality is with Trump in the White House backed financially by the global elite the corporate Republicans can retain their stranglehold. I recall hearing Trump supporters say he was going to take control back from the 'global elite', and now they're cheering them backing him?

His followers.

It's understandable that roughly 35% of Americans, i.e. its fundamentalist base, those true-believers who still believe a messiah will save them, back a big brother-type who claims he'll protect them from the 'others'. Cult of personality redux.

Wow you guys are really mad that your whole entire narrative fell apart again huh? Sorry not sorry.

Wow you guys are really mad that your whole entire narrative fell apart again huh? Sorry not sorry.

A criminal got acquitted because he didn’t allow any witnesses at his trial and his band of imbeciles supported him. The only people they should feel sorry for is themselves.

the main speech was not vulgar and was not given during the prayer breakfast.

No surprise that a vulgar man’s followers feel so. Not only was it vulgar but downright disgusting. The tight hug to Ivanka but a cold peck to Melania.

Boy, that family is really screwed!!!!

There were 18 witnesses, who’s testimony do you think Schiff spent 24 hours talking about? Well except the 1 witness and transcript that is still hidden from us.

Fell apart? Your interpretation. But then those who cheer on Russian 'meddling', those who trust the Kremlin and not US and other 'western' intelligence agencies' reports, those who want the democratic principles the republic's based on, will have an anti-American slant that the narrative fell apart.

@Ulysses

‘Make America hate again ‘

Let's not kid ourselves. America's division has absolutely nothing to do with Trump. Yes, there are people emboldened by him. However, this division has always been there.

"It was all bullsh*t,"

Trump needs to stop kidding himself. Majority of his party has come out and admitted that he did everything the Democrats said he did and the evidence against him was overwhelming. They simply couldn't get behind a partisan impeachment. The impeachment wouldn't be partisan if Republicans were not so afraid of alienating voters before an election.

The dictatorship is looking after its own. The sycophants roar their approval and all seems well.

Great!

For now.

Liberals can always look forward to 2024....that is, if they can get their act together.

Some Republicans believe that this impeached potus will be chastened now and his more base and petulant instincts will be reined in.

Not a chance. Just what will he do next?

Bingo.

Mitt Romney's stance was brave.

And politically foolish, but he’s got enough cash, he’ll be fine, it’s not like liberals like him, they hate him, they just hoped you had one idiot Republican to join their ranks in taking this President down and Romney was that idiot. Now he really is alone, but he has great hair.

He committed to the oath he took and rose above the lies and partisanship. He will, of course, be vilified because of his backbone.

Yeah, believe that crap if you want.

I don't often commend politicians in his party, and for good reason, but well said, sir.

Well, he’s definitely in control now more stronger than ever, thanks Nancy.

Anti-Trumpers have spent 3 plus years calling Trump and his supporters dolts, racists, white supremacists, xenophobes, morons, illiterate, uneducated, deplorables, misogynists, and stupid. Now that their sham fell apart, they want to point their noses and say we're all "mature" in a sarcastic tone. These progressives are so "woke" they're sleeping right through their own ignorance and hypocrisy.

There was an article today that mentioned many Republicans were too afraid to vote for anything but acquital. Peer pressure is alive and well.

Something for those gloating about 'MAGA' can chew on.

It's as meaningless as a gymnast winning a competition because her countrymen gave her the highest scores.

Bolton was not part of the trial. Please buy his book to support your new hero.

But the intelligence community IG Atkinson was part of the trial, as he testified to Schiff.

why no liberals have any interest at all about what he said? Isn’t schiff guilty of obstruction for not allowing anyone to see a transcript?

-7 ( +4 / -11 )

Even Meghan McCain won’t accept Romney. She got mad when he was compared to her daddy and said they are nothing alike.

he thinks liberals will actually like him now. Nope, just a useful idiot for the moment like the Repubs who voted against Kavanaugh.

@blacklabEven Meghan McCain won’t accept Romney.

If so that kind of thwarts the alt right's narrative it's either all Trump or whatever the polar opposite might be, nothing in between. Good to see an example shown of an individual having an opinion that's not all one pole or the other. Not Trump's way or libs/dems. A start. Kudos!

Since Trump has lowered unemployment for African Americans; lowered unemployment for women; given a school voucher to an African American girl; released from prison several African Americans who were unjustly imprisoned; honored a Tuskegee airman and his grandson; and signed legislation supportive of historical black universities; and since you guys consider all of that racist and misogynistic; and since your the total opposite of Trump, well... It's only logical to conclude that you consider the opposite of all those actions not to be racist and misogynistic. But rather, the right thing to do. Sheesh!

If you're misogynist, racist, xenophobic, white supremacist.....you voted for Trump. But they aren't all stupid. The smart ones give the narratives to the semi-literates as a means of control.

I will point out that they're all losers in my book. I don't care how much money you have or how pretty your wife is, if you attack children and Gold Star Mothers, scam people out of money, and discriminate against minorities, then you're just a straight up loser.

Can't deny it.

The Congressional Representatives and Senators sounded very serious about the charges they were bringing against the President . . . It is unbelievable to think they intended any malice . . . . The President should welcome the criticism of others - like an open minded person.

On that I agree. As learnt in statistics classes in any large population outliers and anomalies are bound to occur. No doubt with the dozens of millions who voted for Trump there probably are some who aren't racist and misogynistic.

I was waiting for the Repubs sitting in their seats during the SOTU address to slide down on to the floor - tough to remain upright when you have no spine...the only one left upright would be Romney...

Dimwit Donnie really blew it big time by giving the Medal of Freedom to a drug abuser and proud white supremacist. So I guess all those Repubs and all the Trumpers here agree with his comments like; "Slavery wasn't so bad - it kept the streets safe at night", or "take that bone out of your nose and call me back", or Obama is "halfrican American"...

I hear the runner up to Rush was David Duke - another Trump backer....and third in line was Stormy Daniels...

Very probably. That doesn’t mean everyone who voted for Trump falls into that category, but I’m pretty sure he got the lion’s share.

Trump's acquittal has set a deadly precedent. It states that from now on, future Presidents can and have the power to interfere and manipulate elections as they please, make backdoor deals to get whatever they want, and not be held accountable to any laws that they break. Americans' privacy will now forever be open to the power of the President. This decision proves that POTUS can do anything he or she wishes even though it is illegal and hurtful to others.

6 ( +9 / -3 )

Trump's brazen public display of belligerence lacking any sign of contrition bodes ill for his remaining months in office. The moving words spoken by the still, small voice of Mitt Romney's conscience will forever record a blot and stain on the memory of this demented huckster and haunt his craven Republican enablers until their dying days. The Dems now know that they must continue to pursue justice for the sake of the nation's honor besmirched in the eyes of the whole world by driving this incorrigibly vulgar charlatan out of office BEFORE November. The Constitution demands no less of Americans who would defend their "democracy".

Limbaugh: “I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”

Bass: Laws implemented and created by Democrats

Limbaugh: “Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”

Bass: Well....

Lombaugh:  [To an African American female caller]: “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.”**

Bass: I remember conservatives clings to their guns and religions....

Limbaugh: “Let the unskilled jobs that take absolutely no knowledge whatsoever to do — let stupid and unskilled Mexicans do that work.”

Bass: California seems happy with this.

American President Trump has endured constant attacks from the beginning, and it is clear that is all motivated by hatred for the man who they can't fit into the proper box.

He drives the left, the establishment, and the media crazy because they can't control him, and they are terrified he might throw a wrench in their corruption gig.

And I thought the media in Japan was untrustworthy! CNN, MSNBC, CBS, PBS... virtually all of the so-called "news" outlets in the U.S. are marching lock, stock and barrel with the DNC. It's as obvious as it can get. They are cheerleaders for the left, not journalists.

I think 4 more years of Donald Trump will be great for the U.S. as well as the world.

Then, Donald Trump, Jr. can serve as President for the next 8 years after that.

I think it's going to be a good run!

Some just support a loser because they want revenge, others are single issue voters like guns, abortion, religion, some voted for what they think is their pocketbook, etc.

But make no mistake, they all voted for a loser who insults children and Gold Star Moms. And they love him for it.

Yes, that’s what impeachment is all about, the end and conviction in the Senate, he wasn’t as well as Clinton wasn’t, which in US legal terms is: “acquitted” and that’s for life. Now the Dems could try again and further ruin their chances on further eroding their chances at winning anything in the future.

No its not,

I think it is because where do the Dems want to go from here? They have tried more than 5 times to get rid of this guy and all they do is keep making him stronger. If Democrats really want to make headway in this election, go after him on the issues and prove you do better, but Dems need a real viable candidate because as of now, none of these people can beat Trump.

Trump has confirmed that he will not leave office no matter what and his NRA2ATrump people will defend him staying in the WH down to the last bullet. But it's good news for the Trump people. Look at the economy at 5.5%. Why be unhappy about that if you are a Trump person? Won't the Trump magic keep the American economy steaming?

I would take that along with two more Supreme Court justices.

Does that mean fetuses over economy? Could this turn the US into one big Mississippi. Remember the senate leaders (R) come from very impoverished states like Kentucky (McConnell) and South Carolina (Graham). What happens if the US economy becomes like one big Kentucky-like economy (or that of South Carolina).

Who cares?

Well we know you don't. That's why we call the left regressives and super intolerant.

If you're a racist, sexist, bigot, xenophobe, white supremacist, you voted for Trump

Ok. If you say so. I know you prefer facts over truth; but you'll forgive me (probably not) for choosing truth over alternative facts.

I'd celebrate too if I found out I was literally above the law!

And then I'd start making everything work for me. Everything.

But we all know Trump's ethics won't let him abuse the power of his office, so it's a good thing it's him, and not me.

why no liberals have any interest at all about what he said? Isn’t schiff guilty of obstruction for not allowing anyone to see a transcript?

same could be said of Trump for not allowing any documents to be released or witnesses in the trial,

seriously what democratic legal system has a trial without documentation or witnesses, witnesses with first hand knowledge of Trump's conversation!?

YOU don’t personally believe he’s vindicated, that’s your choice. I don’t wan to believe he was impeached, but it happened.

well you know Clinton was acquitted during his trial, still does not change the fact that Monica gave him a BJ in the Oval office and he lied about it.

so at least we can both agree that both POTUS will have the stigma of Impeached against their names in the history books

We could say the same about the last administration not overturning documents, happens in every administration.

So the House had their chance and they blew it. Blame them, they started and rushed down this road and now they’re all eating crow. Did you see Nadler last night? He looked like he got bulldozed.

, witnesses with first hand knowledge of Trump's conversation!?

The Senate wasn’t going to do the House’s dirty work. They did their job, they saw the evidence, reviewed it, saw nothing worth impeaching the President over and acquitted him. Done and can never be undone. Acquitted for life.

SuperLib: If you're a racist, sexist, bigot, xenophobe, white supremacist, you voted for Trump

Noidall: Ok. If you say so.

It's really just common sense, unless you think black people teamed up with racists to vote for Clinton?

That's why we call the left regressives and super intolerant.

Who cares?

Oh absolutely. White liberals are some of the most racist people one can ever have the misfortune of meeting.

The Donnie speaking:

"It was all b.s.," he said.

Yeah, sure, maybe he is talking about his presidency, got things once again confused.

But this happens if (or when) you don't stick to a prompter.

Free speech is sometimes too difficult for a 3rd grade elementary school level president.

As a non American it pains me to see the repubs act so brazenly UN-American….

That they throw their constitution & COUNTRY under the bus for this utter moron is sad to see & getting more dangerous by the day as well

I can see if this BS continues for 4+ more years the US could well end up in a UN-civil WAR!!!

Truly scary stuff watching all these spineless repubs doing their own country in & for WHAT!!!

America has flushed itself into oblivion. Politicians who knew and admitted the presidents actions were wrong, but too morally corrupt to do anything about it. Mindless flowers whooping and cheering like they have 'won' something.

It sad, but strangely amusing.

@zaphod aka fizzbits etc. Aquitted, so NOT impeached.

What does the global alt right glossary say 'impeachment means? Here's one definition:

Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body levels charges against a government official. Impeachment does not in itself remove the official definitively from office; it is similar to an indictment in criminal law, and thus it is essentially the statement of charges against the official.

Again it's proof since Graham and McConnell are leaders of the poorest states in the US and they are political leaders. When you went a leader you want someone from a smart state like Massachusetts. Kentucky (McConnell)? That's just one of the stupid states. So is S. Carolina (Graham). I understand people in those states are not the sharpest pencils in the bunch and God bless 'em. But they are choosing leaders of the whole country. Hello US of Mississippi.

the main speech was not vulgar

You can't even quote the whole speech on JT because the filter won't let you post it. It'll catch a word that rhymes with fullsnit.
