Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – That was the week that wows edition

TW3, everyone… (hopefully the BBC won’t sue me)  – and what a week it was!  I’ve quit trying to count the wheels that have come off the Trump Train, and am just concentrating on dodging them as they fly by.

First up – He’s Bolton! (composite thread) :

Trump says he fired national security advisor John Bolton-JB says he “offered to resign”

It will be very interesting to see who replaces him. No names come quickly to my mind.

Suddenly, Free republic has turned into anti-war dove territory:

HALLELUJAH!!! War mongering uberstatist who never met a foreign entanglement he did not celebrate!!!

I thank GOD every day for Donald Trump for cleaning out this cabal of Chenney/Bolton pseudopatriot scum from the state dept.

He put the cabal IN there, you incredible fucking moron.

The myth that “if we don’t fight them over there, then they will come here” has done nothing but breed the kind of rage that creates terrrorists, kill our boys for NOTHING, bankrupt the country, and dance like a marionette on a string to the Likud.

One can only hope Pompeo is next.

Good luck with that.

Pompeo is probably the best of his Cabinet picks.

If true it’s a big surprise and you can bet it’s because of the Taliban thing.


don’t know if firing bolton was as big a surprise as hiring him in the first place.

He hires and fires the BEST people!

taliban thing is believable as “the straw”

I’ve got a feeling that Jared and Ivanka are behind all this “ let’s hold hands with our enemies” BS. I always thought that Bolton had it right with dealing with strategic adversaries. I know that is not in vogue in the “new” conservative views,but that’s how I feel and I respect other views as well.

Let’s move on, shall we?  Lots to cover in this one – Todd finally had enough!

BREAKING: Sarah Palin’s Husband [Todd] Files For Divorce PJ Media ^ | September 9, 2019 | Matt Margolis Posted on 9/9/2019, 3:22:28 PM by LUV W

Anchorage Daily News reports that Todd Palin, the husband of former Alaska governor and GOP vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has filed for divorce.

In a document filed Friday in Anchorage Superior Court, Todd Palin, 55, asked to dissolve the marriage, citing an “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.”

“”I think the Midwest screeching finally got to him. Face it, Sarah is a looker but…””

I don’t know what comes after your post but I have to agree. Can’t even describe the ones here who took issue with that sentiment several years ago. It was like you had insulted their wives or their mothers.

Her voice drove me nuts! I had nothing else against her but that voice would shatter glass and THAT was when she used a microphone. No one told her it wasn’t necessary to shout. She’d be a great addition to FOX as they have some of the worst female voices in captivity..

Texas Democrats unveil plan to flip the state from red to blue in 2020 CBS NEWS ^ | SEPTEMBER 9, 2019 | AARON NAVARRO, ELEANOR WATSON Posted on 9/9/2019, 2:28:51 PM by BlackFemaleArmyColonel

The Democratic Party of Texas is laying out its plans to end decades of Republican dominance in the state, touting a substantial voter registration and turnout effort to create a blue wave of elected officials in 2020. It released its planning document Monday morning, the same week as Houston’s Democratic presidential debates.

The party set a goal of registering 2.6 million Texans to vote, boosting turnout in suburban areas and putting 1,000 field organizers on the ground.

“We will win the White House, take out John Cornyn, expand our Texas congressional delegation, break the supermajority in the Texas Senate, flip the Texas House, and elect hundreds of local Democrats across the state,” wrote Texas Democratic Party deputy executive director Cliff Walker.

In addition to focusing on signing up unregistered voters and increasing turnout in growingly diverse as well as reliably Democratic areas, the plan also includes a focus on voter protection. A year-round hotline will be put in place to report any cases of voting suppression, and Texas Democrats have teamed with Democratic lawyers to be ready to fight those cases.

A crux of the plan is the state party’s voter registration effort, which it hopes to achieve through state-coordinated campaigns with counties, a big increase in staffing and a direct mail effort including 1.5 million mail applications. In its analysis of the 2.6 million unregistered Texans, compiled from records from the Texas secretary of state, Texas Democrats identified a number of young, diverse populations in fluid metro areas.

“Five of America’s 25 fastest growing cities are in Texas,” Walker wrote in the plan. “These five cities are expected to drive more than 500,000 people into Texas over the next two years, up to 300,000 registered voters. We know many of these people are coming from liberal cities…”

Which is why Dems need to import as many illegal aliens as possible into the United States and ship them to red states..notice when illegals come here the Dems dont say “Send them to California, New York, Oregon” of course not, to states like Alabama, Texas, Georgia, permanently change the voter base, give them all food stamps, welfare, and free health care and they will never ever lose another election, wont be a point to even having one

To: brownsfan


We need to all be aware, that the demographics of America have been changing. Texas is changing but almost everywhere in America is seeing these changes to some degree.

Republicans/conservatives need to chip away at the Democrat advantage among members of the various ethnic/racial minority groups.

I give them a 50/50 chance. Texas is dying by a 1000 cuts. Texas will be the prize that will basically break America’s back. The GOP will never win the Presidency again.

Nope..nope..not 50/50…no way. I am in Deep South Texas. Almost all my Hispanic neighbors and friends love Trump and vote Republican.

So they say, when talking to their crazy hick neighbour.  And what an astounding sample size you have there!

This turning Texas blue story is fake news. Won’t happen.

I am in Houston, and it looks a lot different here. Republicans used to win the county-wide races in Harris County. Now Democrats are sweeping those races. And these are left-wing Democrats, not moderates. Politically, Houston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio now have a lot more in common with liberal cities elsewhere in the country than they have with rural Texas. Fort Worth is probably not far behind. The politicians winning elections in these cities look a lot more like Beto O’Rourke and Julian Castro than like old-fashioned Texas blue dog Democrats.

I think that is a lot more indicative of the overall situation than what is going on in Deep South Texas. About two thirds of Texas’s population lives in metropolitan Houston, DFW, Austin, and San Antonio, and that percentage is growing as those places grow more liberal.
