Good morning, everyone! I promised some oldies, but first – a nugget of absolute pure Freepitude:
In a thread about Dead Breitbart’s assertion that The Darnold didn’t REALLY say what he said:
Donald Trump Corrects the Record: Media Proposed Muslim Database, Not Me

Donald Trump corrected reports from the media suggesting that he actually wanted a government database for all Muslim Americans to be registered in order to stop terrorism.
“I didn’t suggest a database , a reporter did”, he wrote on Twitter moments ago. “We must defeat Islamic terrorism and have surveillance, including a watch list, to protect America.”
The media spent most of the day reacting to Trump’s positive reaction to a question posed by reporters as to whether he supported a plan to register American Muslims.
….which he positively did!
Let the spin begin!
DiogenesLamp (which has apparently gone out) is furious. At Trump? No, for some reason, at the Democrat Propaganda Agents (another good band name, BTW) :
Donald Trump Corrects the Record: Media Proposed Muslim Database, Not Me
Democrat Propaganda agents were criminally lying again? They need to be brought up on Federal Election Commission charges for attempting to tamper with an election by deliberately promulgating known falsehoods.
We need to hammer these media bastards every chance we get. We need to be working on ways to put these Democrat agents in prison for election tampering.
I wrote to Trump on Twitter yesterday saying that same exact thing and also asked him to considering suing. This is outrageous where the media can just make stuff up like this then spread it like wildfire throughout social media. That idiot George Takei yesterday spread that story yesterday…This is was on Facebook, so I wrote him and told him “Calm down old man, you’ve been scammed” That guy has I believe 9 million followers, so that’s a potential 9 million people that saw that false story. This stuff ain’t no joke, this is absolute pure slander what they are doing to Trump.
Yes here is what he wrote………
In an interview, Donald Trump refused to rule out requiring all Muslims to carry special religious identification, or to rule out warrantless searches of their homes and places of worship. Said Trump, “We’re going to have to do things that we never did before. We’re going to have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.” Many recall, with horror, how Jews were forced to wear special religious identification in Nazi Germany—a yellow star of David. In the U.S., my own family, and over a hundred thousand other Japanese Americans, were tagged like mere pieces of luggage, with no charges, with no trial, with no due process, before they shipped us off to prison camps.
Mr. Trump, unto my last dying breath, I shall oppose this madness. I shall continue to speak out, whether on social media or from our stage in Allegiance on Bway, against the dangers of racial or religious profiling and its dehumanizing effect. Yours is the first step toward the destruction of all we hold dear, and to that I and all good people must say, “Never again, never again, never, never, never again.”
To: GrandJediMasterYoda; AllGeorge, you should be glad that you and your people WERE shipped off to those detainment camps because America was so pissed off with your ancestral warlords in Japan, that your safety and the safety of your family and friends could not be guaranteed in the post-Pearl Harbor world of 1941+.The only possible complaint you might have, would be if you would admit or confirm that it was in your own detainment camp that you were first introduced to the homosexual practice of sucking d–k. If you were coerced into being a peter puffer, you might even today, have a claim against the U.S. government. But as for this 21st century threat of Islamofascism from ISIS and their ideological brethren, you DO realize don’t you, that if they did manage to take over our Nation and institute sharia law, that YOU and your sexual ilk would be among the first ones to be decapitated in the name of ‘allah’, have you thought about that?Get back to me on that.
First oldie – Cruz out of control!
Ted Cruz says Donald Trump can’t win, nation awaits inevitable angry response
The Examiner ^ | October 9, 2015 | Mark Whittington, Houston Ted Cruz Examiner

Politico noted on Friday that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a candidate for president of the United States, has said the first thing that has come out of his mouth that could be construed to be remotely negative about Donald Trump. Cruz stated in an interview that will run Sunday on WABC that he does not think that Trump will win the Republican nomination and that most of the mercurial businessman’s voters will gravitate to the man from Texas. The statement was so mild and obvious that if said about anyone else it would not be news. Indeed, a Trump spokesperson simply begged to disagree on Twitter.
But, as Hot Air reminded us, Donald Trump is no ordinary candidate. He has both a volcanic temper and a thin skin that has manifested many times in incendiary attacks on opponents and members of the media. The nation is now hushed, awaiting the explosion. Will Trump call Cruz a “loser” and will he go full bore birther on him?
To be sure, Cruz sweetened his observation with praise….
To: 2ndDivisionVetWishful thinking on Cruz part. It will never happen. Rand Paul is about as likely to win. Both should quit..
I heard this chuck prattle on and on at a campaign rally about how he hated the photo of his goodself on People Magazine, over their showing a ‘horrrible wart on my nose’ and yet this ‘bump’ was hardly noticeable on an otherwise good photo. Sheesh. What a egomaniacal psychopath.This is not presidential. This has nary a hint of our modern Conservative template, Ronald Reagan.
Who the hell rambles on about such nonsense intent on the Oval Office? Seriously, something ain’t right here; I did not like it with Obama and felt it unbecoming of a president, and I don’t like it with this chap.
Hoping Senator Ted puts him in his place.
Come home Freepers. Come home to Free Republic.
To: 2ndDivisionVetTed, you can’t even break double digits and I love your ideals but your speaking style creeps people out, not me, but a lot of people.
Come home Freepers. Come home to Free Republic
Amen. The reality-show crowd rivals the low-information crowd – and overlap quite a bit. A lot more of both around here lately.
House Benghazi chairman to Republicans: ‘shut up’ – Trey Gowdy tells GOP to zip it
Daily Mail ^ | 10/18/2015
Posted on 10/18/2015 3:44:06 PM by SeekAndFind* House Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy said on Face the Nation that he’s been telling members of his own party to ‘shut up’* Gowdy was responding to two GOP congressmen who claimed the panel had become partisan and an ex-employee who said the same thing
* Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said she hoped Hillary Clinton would be held accountable for the murder of four Americans in Benghazi
* Gowdy is distancing himself from all these remarks – noting how none of these people actually serve on the committee
House Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy has a message for Republicans: shut. up. ‘I have told my own Republican colleagues and friends, “Shut up talking about things that you don’t know anything about,”‘ Gowdy said today on Face the Nation.
Gowdy was trying to prevent further foot-in-mouth moments after House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy implied that the House Select Committee on Benghazi was responsible for killing Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers, an admission that allowed the Democratic frontrunner to label the panel as nothing more than a partisan hack job.
Following McCarthy, a former Republican investigator came forward and said he was fired because he refused to engage in a partisan witch hunt – claims that the committee denied.
Then, Rep. Richard Hanna said, ‘I think that there was a big part of this investigation that was designed to go after people, and an individual, Hillary Clinton.’
Finally, presidential candidate Carly Fiorina chimed in, saying about Clinton’s scheduled testimony in front of the committee this Thursday: ‘I wish for once Mrs. Clinton would be prepared to stand and be held accountable for the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.’
Gowdy noted how none of the Republicans talking were actually on the committee.
If Gowdy doesn’t nail Clinton to the wall, and show this evil woman for what she is, his name is mud. The Republicans are the laughing stock of American politics. Called the Stupid Party for a reason. They always let the Treasonous Progressives take the high road.
As much as I hate the mentally sick Dems. I detest the hypocrite elite Republicans.
Make no mistake, Hillary will be the 45th POTUS. She has almost 50 % of the vote in her pocket. The Dems. will cheat, steal, do whatever they have to do to push her over the top. She has 240 electoral votes on her side right now. She only need 30 or so more to win.
There you have it kids. The Fall of the United States of American(sic) .
To: kristinnSo Representative Gowdy, would you like fries with your nothing burger???
To: Art in Idaho
Oh oh, Gowdy is about to call it a night.
She makes me ill. I’m mad at myself for watching this since 9 o’clock this morning. What a waste of time.
To: Art in Idaho
he ran out of steam!
So, since the ambassador was gay, why aren’t the rainbow peeps raising hell about this whole mess?
A Frustrated Gowdy Says Future Benghazi Hearings Will Be Done in Private
Townhall.com ^ | October 26, 2015 | Cortney O’Brien

Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy gave Hillary Clinton the option as to whether she wanted to testify in public or in private. She chose public, and it now seems he regrets that decision.
“I can just tell you, in the private interviews, there is never any of what you saw Thursday. It is one hour on the Republican side, one hour on the Democrat side, which is why you’re going to see the next two dozen interviews done privately,” he said.
“The private ones always produce better results.”
Instead of producing results or new information into the investigation in Benghazi, many argue that last week’s hearing produced only partisan bickering and entertaining sound bites between Gowdy and Elijah Cummings, one of the Democrats on the panel.
The panel infighting unfortunately overshadowed more important exchanges between Clinton and the committee members. For example, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) revealed an email Clinton wrote to her family after the Benghazi ambush that proved that she knew it was a terror attack. Yet, Jordan reminded her, she told Americans it was the result of a YouTube video. The committee now had proof that the former secretary of state knowingly misled the public. It should have been front page news. Instead, outlets replayed Gowdy vs. Cummings all day.
In short, the committee appeared more intent on fighting one other than getting answers from their witness. Clinton, as a result, left the hearing in one piece.
Gowdy has to be frustrated that a year and half’s work has been jeopardized in the past few weeks. He had already been on the defensive in the aftermath of GOP Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments that the Benghazi committee had a political agenda.
As for how the committee’s most visible witness performed last week, Gowdy said she offered little substance.
“Did she cooperate in answering the question? Yes. Was it an accurate answer? No.”
Face it. Gowdy blew it. Yet another Republican who was outwitted by that corrupt, alcoholic lesbian.
…but enough about Maureen Dowd…
All it needs is Wink Martindale to be the announcer.
“Tell Hillary whay she won Johnny!”
“Thats right Hillary! Thanks to the ongoing efforts of the fraud Trey Gowdy, You are the proud new owner of this shiny new INNOCENCE! You and a guest will be taken on an all expense paid life to Washington DC where we’ll put you up forever in a rainbow colored house, pay you half a mil a year and give you nuclear codes because YOU Hillary…ARE INNOCENT OF WRONGDOING!”
Everybody’s a comedian…
See you good people next Monday!
