Posted in: Court to Trump: Blocking Twitter critics is unconstitutional See in context

Geez, there's so much "winning" going on in Trump-world....

He loses this court ruling on blocking folks on Twitter...

He loses a court ruling on the census question...

His Labor Secretary cut a sweetheart deal for a child molester...

He says the British had airfields in 1776...

It rained on his 4th of July parade...

Poor Donnie - losing is such sweet sorrow....

And with Muller testifying next week, get ready for more...

"That would (be) something that we would certainly hope to see at the beginning. But I don't think that the administration has ever characterized a freeze as being the end goal. That would be at the beginning of the process."

OK, I'm confused. Donnie pulled out of an agreement with Iran that was successfully freezing its ability to get weapons grade nuclear material - and Iran has no nuclear weapons yet.

But we're going to agree to a freeze with North Korea letting them keep the 10-13 nuclear weapons they already have.

Kim sure worked some major mojo on Donnie...there has to be a secret Trump Tower Pyongyang deal here somewhere...

As I mentioned yesterday, this is not his "personal feelings" - this is his professional assessment as the UK representative to our country.

No, that’s his straight up personal opinion, he is not Dr. Drew and he is not a psycho analyst. If he makes an assessment is for us on a professional level that is his opinion. Equally the president can also give his personal assessment of how the man is doing his job as well as his conduct.

Wrong. Ambassadors, and other diplomatic personnel, are trained to provide assessments of other political leaders. Donnie can't offer professional advice on anything, well, maybe sexual assault and bankruptcy.

Sir Darroch was extremely measured in his comments - I've seen much worse.

For all the years that I have been doing this job, I have seen more bias coming from the Brits about every conservative president and frankly, it’s a breath of fresh air that someone is fighting back and calling them out.

Yea, Reagan and Thatcher hated each other...

And again, as I've said before, he could have easily assessed that Trump was a serial liar, con-man, Russia-lover, and in the latest stages of dementia. 

Please keep the Russia conspiracy comments coming, they’re helpful to Trump and Pence 2020.

I notice you selectively responded to only the Russia comment - glad to see you agree with the others. And I agree with you, Trumpers love Russia and Putin - they helped get their savior elected - that's why you see so many MAGA hat wearers waving the Russian flag...

Given the cesspool that is

The Washington elite and that won’t change anytime soon. None of the childish outburst from these politicians are going to do anything to change that, in fact it might end up becoming their political demise.

As we've seen with the Epstein case, "GOP" needs to change to "PPPP" - Pervert Platoon Protecting Pedophiles...

If Darroch is willing to inject his personal feelings about the President he’s the biggest fool on the planet to think the President would sit by and let that personal criticism go unchallenged.

As I mentioned yesterday, this is not his "personal feelings" - this is his professional assessment as the UK representative to our country. I've read hundreds of cables our Ambassadors have sent and we do the same thing, as does every other government.

Sir Darroch was extremely measured in his comments - I've seen much worse.

And again, as I've said before, he could have easily assessed that Trump was a serial liar, con-man, Russia-lover, and in the latest stages of dementia.

"The wacky Ambassador that the UK foisted upon the United States is not someone we are thrilled with, a very stupid guy," Trump wrote, describing Darroch as a "pompous fool".

Donnie, as for pompous fool, I'm betting the Ambassador can remember where his father was born, that there are no new "Sherman tanks", and that his country didn't have any airfields on US soil in 1776...

President Donald Trump lost a major Twitter fight Tuesday when a federal appeals court said that his daily musings and pronouncements were overwhelmingly official in nature and that he violated the First Amendment whenever he blocked a critic to silence a viewpoint.

Sorry Donnie - your latest small-minded attempt to wreck our Constitution has been judged illegal again. How many amendments does that make now that you've tried to violate?

I'm guessing 17, as that's the same number of women you've violated...

An absolute disgrace and embarrassment, let alone a danger to the Republic...

I see you are rather fond of alternative facts yourself. The quote came from Bradley Edwards, a lawyer who represented Jefferey Epstein’s victims, and is recorded in court documents.

All verifiable, but it will burst that little bubble - so most don't bother and instead stick with their left wing propaganda rags that tell them what to think.

Hah! Epstein's lawyer - that's a real credible source. How come Donnie's lawyer hasn't verified it?

So explain why Trump Labor Secretary Acosta gave Epstein a sweetheart deal?

Trump had barred Epstein from his Mar-A-Lago estate “because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club.”

@lincolnman - That was not only a one-sided presentation of facts. Some weren't even facts. It's OK to be biased, but don't pretend you are being objective.

Trump has hosted Epstein multiple times at Mar-A-Lago and Epstein's estate is less than one mile from Mar-A-Lago.

Fact: Trump banned Epstein from Mar-A-Lago after he assaulted an underage girl there.

You mean alternative fact. The only one pushing that lie is the Federalist Papers - the alt-right conspiracy theory publisher and Trump cover-up machine. Epstein was Trump's buddy and neighbor - and as Trump admitted, they both "like girls"....

Want to now who's been invited to Mar-A-Lago this weekend? Robert "I visit massage parlors" Kraft.

The FBI was involved in investigating Epstein in the run up to the 2007 conviction. As such, they had to sign off on the disposition/plea agreement of the matter. Guess that kind of information is still on the slow boat to Japan.

Wrong! You better consult your pedo defending lawyers Dershowitz and Starr - they'll tell you all prosecutorial decisions are made by the Federal Attorney - the FBI has no authority with regards to judicial matters, just law enforcement. In fact, the Repub Prosecutor undercut the FBI's case..

Although Acosta insisted that he pursued a harsh plea deal with Epstein’s lawyers, the resulting sweetheart deal smothered the FBI’s investigation and forced Acosta to spend only 13 months in jail. Records cited by the Herald show that Acosta did not seek a harsh sentence—instead, he repeatedly caved to lawyers’ demands and even worked with Epstein’s legal team to limit the scope of the FBI’s investigation.

The "go easy" decision was made by the Federal Prosecutor, now Labor Secretary Acosta...

stein pleaded guilty back in 2007 to a reduced federal prostitution charge in Florida and had to register as a sex offender. As part of his plea agreement with the feds, his 13-month sentence included enabling him to get out of the Palm Beach County Stockade six days a week to work from his office -- unsupervised -- and return at night to his jail bunk.

So, who was the FBI Director at that time involved OK'ing Epstein’s deal? None other than Robert Mueller. Yes, that Robert Mueller.

Wrong! The FBI Director has nothing to do with indicting and prosecuting a suspect - they just investigate and hand the evidence to the Prosecutor. What to charge, whether to indict, and whether to accept a deal all falls to the Dept of Justice and Federal District Attorney - that person is now Trump Labor Secretary Acosta.

And the Attorney General and Justice Dept head n 2007 was Repub and Bush Jr cabinet member Micheal McMukasey. Epstein's attorneys were Repubs Allen Dershowitz and Ken Starr - yes, that Ken Starr. Trump Attorney General Repub Bill Barr was a member of that same firm.

Repubs in cahoots protecting molesters.... Definitely the party of Roy Moore....

And half Trump's administration worked as crooked lawyers getting him off his first charge.

Posted in: U.S. hedge fund billionaire charged with sex trafficking minors See in context

This is the kind of thing that makes it so easy for, let's say, the Russians to meddle in American elections and the American political process on the whole. There is a tendency (more like a pathology) in America now, where the zealots on both sides to take a story like this and twist it ( sometimes in the most convoluted manner) into some kind of "evidence" or even "proof" that their political opponents are despicable, hateful people.

Right now, the Left is honing in on what they want to believe. That being, Trump was behind it all and should be prosecuted for child prostitution. While the Right chants "Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton"

Jeff Epstein is a pedophile. He used his wealth and powerful connections to facilitate his pedophilic inclinations. He preyed on the naivety and lack of life experience of his victims to satisfy his sexual deviance. He is a despicable individual and deserves every bad thing that comes his way. He's the bad guy, He's the story. Not Bill Clinton and the Dems or Donald Trump and the GOP.

The victims have a story to tell and, who knows, maybe there is a powerful testament and lessons to be learned from those stories. But what do we see? "Bill Clinton rode the Lolita Express two dozen times" or "Trump said he was a great guy" By politicizing this story for points against the other side, downplays the vileness of Epstein and the experiences of the victims.

Well, I'd tend to agree with you, but have to respectfully disagree on a couple specific points;

I don't see any non-Trumper here saying that Trump was "behind it all and should be prosecuted for child prostitution." There is clearly no evidence of that; though let me add the Trumpers favorite conspiracy theory caveat - "yet"...

No, this is an issue of character, or lack of it. We have these facts;

Trump has told New York magazine in 2002 that Mr. Epstein was a “terrific guy” whom he had known for 15 years. “He’s a lot of fun to be with,” the president said at the time. “It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

Trump has hosted Epstein multiple times at Mar-A-Lago and Epstein's estate is less than one mile from Mar-A-Lago.

Trump Attorney General Barr has had to recuse himself because he was a member of a law firm that defended Epstein in his first molestation trial.

Trump Labor Secretary Acosta was the Federal Prosecutor during this trial and agreed to a much reduced sentence and plea bargain for these molestation charges.

Trump supporters Allan Dershowitz and Ken Starr also helped defend Epstein.

So you have multiple people within Trump's orbit, to include himself, that know, have assisted, and socialized with Epstein. So we get back to the old Stormy Daniels analogy - what kind of a person cavorts with porn stars and Playboy Bunnies? What kind of person pals around with and defends a child molester? It speaks to their character. Or as I said before, complete lack of it...

Well, another customer of Donnie's book; "The Art of the Sexual Assault, or How to be a Pervert in 3 Easy Steps. Foreword by Roy Moore."

And now Bill Barr, the Attorney General, has recused himself because he used to work for a law firm Epstein used to get his previous charges reduced.

*Barr was right that Kirkland & Ellis was involved in the case. The firm’s senior partner, Jay Lefkowitz, was among high-profile lawyers like Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr who represented Epstein. The so-called all star cast of lawyers, with the apparent blessing of former federal prosecutor Alexander Acosta (President Donald Trump‘s current Labor Secretary), secured a plea agreement for Epstein that got federal sex trafficking charges taken off the table, and then some.*

So Trumpers, are these statements in this article true? If not, what evidence can you provide to counter these facts?

TRUMP: "Well, as you know, President Obama had separation." — remarks Friday to reporters.

THE FACTS: He's wrong. The separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents resulted from Trump's "zero tolerance" policy. Obama had no such policy. After a public outcry and a court order, Trump generally ceased the practice.

TRUMP: "You look at what Joe Biden has done with China. We've lost our shirts with China and now China is dying to make a deal. So — and we're taking, by the way, billions and billions of dollars in tariffs are coming in — and China is paying for it, not our people." — remarks Friday to reporters.

THE FACTS: Actually, Americans are paying for it. Trump refuses to recognize a reality that his own chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, has acknowledged. Tariffs are mainly if not entirely paid by companies and consumers in the country that imposes them. China is not sending billions of dollars to the U.S. treasury.

TRUMP: "The Economy is the BEST IT HAS EVER BEEN!" — tweet Tuesday.

THE FACTS: The economy is not one of the best in the country's history. It expanded at an annual rate of 3.2 percent in the first quarter of this year. That growth was the highest in just four years for the first quarter. In the late 1990s, growth topped 4 percent for four straight years, a level it has not yet reached on an annual basis under Trump. Growth even reached 7.2 percent in 1984.

TRUMP, on approving private-sector health care for veterans: "I actually came up with the idea. I said, 'Why don't we just have the veterans go out and see a private doctor and we'll pay the cost of the doctor and that will solve the problem?' 

THE FACTS: Trump did not invent the idea of giving veterans the option to see private doctors outside the Department of Veterans Affairs medical system at government expense. Nor is he the first president in 40 years to pass the program. Congress approved the private-sector Veterans Choice health program in 2014 and Obama signed it into law.

TRUMP: "You also got very nice pay raises for the last couple of years. Congratulations. Oh, you care about that. They care about that. I didn't think you noticed. Yeah, you were entitled. You know, it was close to 10 years before you had an increase. Ten years. And we said, 'It's time.' And you got a couple of good ones, big ones, nice ones." — remarks June 30 to service members at Osan Air Base, South Korea.

THE FACTS: He's been spreading this falsehood for more than a year, soaking up cheers from crowds for something he didn't do. In May 2018, for example, he declared to graduates of the United States Naval Academy: "We just got you a big pay raise. First time in 10 years." U.S. military members have received a pay raise every year for decades .

I could go on.....

You either have to acknowledge Trump lied on each of these occasions, or present factual evidence that he was telling the truth...

Posted in: Trump hits back as UK's top envoy who called his White House 'inept' See in context

As I mentioned the other day - this gentleman is being reserved in his accurate assessment of our Impostor President.

Darroch had said Trump's presidency could "crash and burn" and "end in disgrace", according to a cache of secret cables and briefing notes sent back to Britain seen by the Mail on Sunday newspaper.

Well, with 20 ongoing investigations and being named an un-indicted co-conspirator, "crash and burn" is very likely. As for ending in disgrace, it began in disgrace, so no doubt will end that way...

"We don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept," Darroch allegedly wrote in one dispatch.

Yep, nailed that one...but he did leave out one - "less Russia loving".....

The paper said the most damning comments by Darroch described Trump, who was received by Queen Elizabeth II during a state visit to Britain just last month, as "insecure" and "incompetent".

"Insecure and incompetent" - boy, that's putting it mildly. Donnie should thank him for not mentioning his dementia.

As has been mentioned above, Trumpers should come out of their delusion and fess up to the real reason they, and the Dimwit, don't like this agreement - President Obama negotiated it and it has his name attached to it - just like the ACA. And for the MAGA crowd, who want to "take American back", anything with an African-American's name on it has to be erased.

Doesn't matter if it keeps Iran from enriching uranium to weapons grade level, doesn't matter if it means you lose you and your family's health insurance - if Obama had anything to do with it, then we have to "repeal it."

And given Donnie's latest dementia-induced statements; "My father was born in Germany", "We'll have brand-new Sherman tanks", "The Continental Army took back the British Airfields during the Revolutionary War", coupled with Neocons Bolton and Pompeo, the potential to stumble into a war has significantly increased...

He was never capable of being President and with his ongoing mental deterioration, is clearly incapable now.
