Trump urged GOP senators to vote against McConnell debt deal
The Hill ^ | 10/07/21 08:33 PM EDT | BY OLAFIMIHAN OSHIN
Posted on 10/7/2021, 7:58:41 PM by RandFan
Former President Trump is urging GOP senators to vote against a deal that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) struck with his Democratic colleagues in the upper chamber to raise the debt ceiling.
“Republican Senators, do not vote for this terrible deal being pushed by folding Mitch McConnell. Stand strong for our Country,” Trump said in an emailed statement Thursday. “The American people are with you!”
Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced Thursday morning that he had reached an agreement with McConnell to raise the debt ceiling into the beginning of December.
The agreement would increase the debt limit by $480 billion. Aides expect that will make the next deadline Dec. 3, the same day government funding will expire.
McConnell confirmed the deal with Democrats during a floor speech on Thursday, saying: “The Senate is moving toward the plan I laid out last night to spare the American people from an unprecedented crisis.”
“The pathway our Democratic colleagues have accepted will spare the American people any near-term crisis,” McConnell added.
To: RandFanWe see who runs the GOP and it’s not Trump. Trump is a fool. I’ve said it since 1/7 and I’m proven right every day, Trump needs to renounce the GOP and form the Workers MAGA Party. As long as Trump stays with these hacks he will continue to be rolled, played and destroyed.3 posted on 10/7/2021, 8:06:00 PM by hardspunned (former GOP globalist stooge)
I don’t know why people here on FR insist that Trump has a core base of support of 80 million voters.He doesn’t.
He probably has 25-30 million dedicated supporters. The rest of the 80 million who voted for him are really just GOP partisans who voted the party line and probably would have preferred another candidate if that option was available.16 posted on 10/7/2021, 8:47:11 PM by Alberta’s Child (“All lies and jest, ‘til a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.”)

POLITICS DONALD TRUMP’S APPROVAL RATING SLIDES TO 36%, THE LOWEST IT’S BEEN SINCE JANUARY (BARF)
Newsweek ^ | 8/22/19 | Asher Stockler
Posted on 8/22/2019, 7:41:16 PM by Maceman
Amid numerous political scandals and an unfurling trade war with China that shows little sign of de-escalation, President Donald Trump lacks the broad confidence of the American public, according to a new AP-NORC poll.
Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job, compared with 36 percent who approve. Predictably, the partisan divides swing favorably or unfavorably towards the president depending on political affiliation. But, notably, the coveted class of self-identified political independents remains opposed to the president, with 65 percent disapproving of the way he is handling his job.
Trump’s approval ratings have not been this low in the monthly AP-NORC survey since January.
While many of the conflicts and controversies that have emerged in recent months pertain to the trade war and Trump’s management of the economy — including a warning sign that a recession may be on the horizon due to a metric known as the inverted yield curve — the public has not been scared off by the president’s economic stewardship. Fifty-one percent disapprove of his handling of the economy, and 46 percent approve. Though this is a net negative rating, it indicates the public is largely divided on the matter, and represents Trump’s highest job approval rating for any category measured in the AP-NORC poll.

Stormy Daniels, Flouting NDA, Details Trump Affair To ‘60 Minutes’
Yahoo! ^ | 26/3/18 | Rebecca Shapiro

Though the adult film star previously denied the affair, she’s now arguing that she should be released from the agreement and be free to speak publicly of her former relationship with Trump as the president did not sign the document.
Cohen has admitted to paying Daniels $130,000. Trump’s lawyers are threatening to make her pay $1 million every time she violates the nondisclosure agreement. The White House has denied any affair occurred.
“He knows I’m telling the truth,” Daniels said of the president.
The adult film star and her lawyer Michael Avenatti have claimed before she has photographic evidence of her affair with Trump.Just so you know the latest MSM ploy.

Limbaugh: Trump’s comments on NFL ‘starting to make me nervous’
The Hill ^ | October 11, 2017
Posted on 10/12/2017, 4:36:29 AM by SMGFan
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday voiced concerns about President Trump’s comments on NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice, saying Trump should not have the power to dictate who can kneel during the anthem.
“There’s a part of this story that’s starting to make me nervous, and it’s this: I am very uncomfortable with the president of the United States being able to dictate the behavior and power of anybody. That’s not where this should be coming from,” Limbaugh said on his show. Limbaugh said he believed Trump’s motives were “pure,” but he argued that the president’s actions were unhelpful in the broader debate on players kneeling.
“Trump is continually tweeting — I know what he’s doing, and I understand why he’s doing it, and his motives are pure; don’t misunderstand. But I don’t think that it is useful or helpful for any employee anywhere to be forced to do something because the government says they must,” he continued.
“We don’t want the president being able to demand anybody that he’s unhappy with behave in a way he requires,” Limbaugh added.
Ah so Rush is bothered by talking. Interesting turn of events.

Scott Michael Greene, 46, was arrested on Wednesday after ambushing Urbandale police officer Justin Martin, 24, and Des Moines police Sgt. Anthony ‘Tony’ Beminio, 39.
Greene surrendered to a state Department of Natural Resources officer in Dallas County about 9am.
An Iowa man has since been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in relation to the deaths of two police officers.
It has now been revealed the cop killer has a pro-Trump sign in this yard, the Daily Beast reports.
The website quotes a neighbor who said: ‘They got a Trump sign, but what’s that got to do with anything?’
Of course, the Freeperati haven’t figured it out yet.

Trump’s disgusting, dangerous dance with birthers
The Washington Post’s Post Partisan ^ | April 7, 2011 | Jonathan Capehart
Posted on 4/7/2011, 10:50:30 PM by 2ndDivisionVet
Donald Trump (Birther-N.Y.) is at it again. In double-barrelled interviews on NBC’s “Today Show” and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump continued his disgusting and dangerous dabbling in the disproved conspiracy theory that President Obama was not born in the United States. This might be good for the ratings of his television show. This might even be good for his business. But it is terrible for the nation and public discourse that someone who claims to be so smart is so willing to perpetuate a lie.
Alex Koppelman snipped this strand of the conspiracy in Dec. 2008 and again in July 2009. And he’ll most likely have to do it again now that Trump has embraced the fallacy with both hands. This all stemmed from a interview of Sarah Obama, the second wife of the president’s grandfather, by Ron McRae, a street preacher, through a translator over the phone. As Koppelman reported in 2009, “Sarah Obama is not the president’s biological grandmother, but he calls her ‘Granny Sarah.’”
In a clear lost-in-translation moment (and over an international phone line), which you can listen to in full here, Mrs. Obama said she was there for her grandson’s birth. When McRae asks where in Mombassa the president was born, the translator, Vitalis Akech Ogombe, repeatedly corrected him….

Then any law or bill he has ever signed and every person appointed to any position is null and void. All the deficit spending money sent to unions, Acorn and bailouts of Democrat(sic) donors/supporters etc. should then be paid back, in full, to the American taxpayer by the Democrat(sic) party that certified him as being eligible to hold the highest office in our Republic.
Then arrest all conspirators involved for treason and give them swift and final judgment.

Jim, This is like revisiting history. This was my first introduction to FR back 2008. No one would listen to us. I figure we’ll see justice in history. Obama will become a pariah, a usurper in office. Today, though, all we can do is grimace and just focus on defeating Clinton. The lies, the damage they have both caused America are unforgivable.

Obama is an (Raila) Odinga Kenyan. Everyone knows it. Our old friend Kenny Bunk was a scholar on the subject. He knows it. He got into schools because of it. There’s no question about it. Either you understand the “Birther” (Long form / COLB / hospital) issue… Or you think “trhere’s nothing to it he was born in Hawaii. Trump did scholarship and his own legacy a great disservice today.

Welp, I’ve been putting this off since forever, but it’s time to dig out some artisanal hand-crafted barrel-aged bullshit from the archives.
Since the Summer’s never-ending freepathon has finally ground to a halt with only three weeks to go until the Fall one starts, it’s probably a good time to ask:
Where DOES the money go?
Posted on Friday, July 03, 2009 10:54:28 AM by Rodamala
I’m very new here and don’t want to get perceived as a “troll”, but I see the Freepathon fund drive meter every day and have a question. I don’t even know if posting on the forum like this is the right way to ask.
Every quarter, there seems to be a fund drive for $80,000. I’d donate, but 1) money is tight right now, and 2) where does the $320k/year go?
I really like this place… I finally get to be around people that “get it”. I feel I should contribute, but… well, see 1 & 2 above.
Freedom is not free.
PAY-GO? I’ll probablly donate… after I get paid for the last job I did. I need to buy groceries first because groceries aren’t free either. 🙂
To: RodamalaSomeone has to pay the bills. There are a whole bunch of us who aren’t rich, but just a few bucks a month tossed into the hat keeps the lights on

Clinton ad ties Trump to KKK, white supremacists
A video released Thursday by Hillary Clinton’s campaign makes the case that Donald Trump is the candidate of racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
“The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in,” a robed man identified as the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan says at the top of the video, followed by images of a Confederate flag fluttering in the wind, Trump waving after a speech, and a man performing a Hitler salute at what appears to be a Trump rally.1 posted on 8/25/2016 11:55:40 AM by Scythian_Reborn
What’s the message? “The Klan supports Trump, all other Democrats should too!”

OK gang – I’ve beefed up the seals on the iso chamber door, put new rubber walkway covers in, and there is now an emergency shower handle every 15 feet with a “You’ve GOT to be fucking kidding me” sign marking each one. Maybe NOW the RCRA guys will get off my ass.
Let’s get started.
The Freeperati are beginning to freep out since The Darnold’s poll numbers have started going in the shitter.
Is it the skewed polls? The dreaded Em Ess Em? Lord Xenu and the Marcabs? (the name of my next band)
It couldn’t POSSIBLY be that Freepers are a fringe of a fringe, and that the majority of sane people in this country are realizing that Orange Julius is a couple of tacos shy of a combination plate. No way.

TOM BAUERLE: CAN SATELLITES REPROGRAM VOTING MACHINES?
Bear Witness ^ | August 5, 2016 | Judi McLeod
Posted on 8/5/2016 9:26:29 PM by dontreadthis
A fervent prayer that radio talk show host Tom Bauerle and Yours Truly won’t become the ‘dearly departed’ following “mysterious deaths” while walking our dogs, hoisting barbells down at the gym or walking home.
Bauerle is the braver of the two because he is right in the U.S., in graver danger for digging like a terrier at the truth about the satellite-reliant election equipment that may now be being “rigged” to get Hillary Clinton elected as the next U.S. president.1 posted on 8/5/2016 9:26:29 PM by dontreadthis

Scarborough calls on GOP to cut ties with Trump
July 29, 2016 | Eddie Scarry
Posted on 7/29/2016 7:44:15 PM by kevcol
Scarborough said Friday on “Morning Joe” that Donald Trump has become too toxic for the GOP’s congressional candidates this year.
“The center cannot hold when you have the speaker of the House [Paul Ryan] calling the Republican nominee a racist but saying he’s still endorsing the nominee,” he said. “It is so bizarre on its face that you have people chuckling in the background.”
Scarborough referenced the often tense relationship Ryan has had with Trump on foreign and domestic policy issues as well as the tone of the celebrity businessman’s campaign.
They need to cut ties with Ryan and Scarburrow..

It’s disgusting to think that a man who received a 95% rating from the American Conservative Union while in congress could be so polluted and corrupted by MSLSD and his leftist buddies that who he is today bears almost no resemblance to who he was.
