Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – ” ’tis the treason ” edition

Well, that’s just great.

I’m sound asleep in a NyQuil-induced coma, and suddenly there’s a huge BANG!

Once I make sure that an airplane didn’t hit the house, I go running down to the ISO chamber, and the damned airlock door is hanging by one hinge. What the hell could have happened in Freeperville???

Oh.

Trump Tower meeting with Russians ‘treasonous’, Bannon says in explosive book

Trump Tower meeting with Russians ‘treasonous’, Bannon says in explosive book

Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the president’s son and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic”, according to an explosive new book seen by the Guardian…

..He is particularly scathing about a June 2016 meeting involving Trump’s son Donald Jr, son-in-law Jared Kushner, then campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York. A trusted intermediary had promised documents that would “incriminate” rival Hillary Clinton but instead of alerting the FBI to a potential assault on American democracy by a foreign power, Trump Jr replied in an email: “I love it.”

The meeting was revealed by the New York Times in July last year, prompting Trump Jr to say no consequential material was produced. Soon after, Wolff writes, Bannon remarked mockingly: “The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers.

“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad sh- t, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”

(…)

“You realise where this is going,” he is quoted as saying. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f–ing Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner … It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”

*********************

I was originally thinking this was FAKE NEWS but there’s a lot of quotes from Bannon in this article and presumably, in the book which is supposed to come out next week. I knew that Bannon was feuding with Javanka in the White House but it seems like he’d rather settle scores than help move the Conservative agenda.

Looks like Bannon has turned on Trump for whatever reason.
I’m guessing he is still licking his wounds from Alabama election.

Good thing Bannon’s not bitter because he was thrown out after helping Trump get elected.

Bannon seems insane.

As compared to WHO, exactly? Trump? That’s setting the sociopath bar pretty low.

I wonder what he thinks of the fake Russian dossier.

Not sure what to make of this blow-up but if DJT doesn’t fire off some angry tweets in Bannon’s direction I bet this is some sort of agreed upon coordinated effort.

2. The ever-popular “fake news”:
To: Be Careful
***WARNING***

Don’t believe these Lying Leftist Media outlets like THE GUARDIAN, that proved themselves to be intentional liars. They are presumed to be lying and we should presume what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.

Why don’t we follow Trump’s lead here on FR? Let’s limit posting headlines from these wretched Lying Leftist outlets.

What will that leave you with? Posting articles from Dead Breitbart?  Heh. Got news for ya, Charlie…

It’s okay, like Trump, to read this stuff, so you know what they’re up to – just don’t post using these Lying Leftist outlets as the source which is a form of promoting their lies. Do like Trump – post the truth about the issue using a reasonably reliable source or yourself as the source. That’s how to EXPOSE the lies without promoting them.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – one hit wonder edition

Hi – folks – just couldn’t get in the groove this week.

Last week’s three-post bender may have given me a bit of a hangover, so just one thread today.

However, it’s a doozy:

When will Jim Robinson banish Trump supporters from FR, like he did in 2007 with Giuliani advocates?
one man’s opinion…

Posted on ‎7‎/‎25‎/‎2015‎ ‎4‎:‎15‎:‎15‎ ‎PM by ken5050

On 4/23/2007, Jim Robinson posted a manifesto, “Giuliani as the GOP presidential nominee would be a dagger in the heart of the conservative movement” (and a knife in the back) . The thread was subtitled, “The only difference in a Liberal Rudy Giuliani and Liberal Hillary Clinton is the fact of which bathrooms they select to use and there are some who are willing to even question that.

*************************************************

JimRob then proceeded to banish all the pro-Rudy posters from FR. It was a purge of fairly epic proportions.Prior to that, there had been considerable support for Rudy on FR. A few months earlier, Rudy had actually placed second in a straw poll on FR. The “Rudybots” as they were termed, were actively posting pro Giuliani threads pretty much 24/7.

What finally led Jim Robinson to take this step were Giuliani’s comments in support of the Roe v. Wade decision at the May 3rd GOP presidential debate.

Prior to that, Rudy had increasingly come under the microscope at FR. The “Giuliani Truth File” was a stand alone category on the FR home page. There was an ongoing “STOP RUDY NOW News & Information Thread” that was featured.

Now let me state a few things for the record.

1. Jim Robinson is absolutely correct that a pro-choice position is anathema to FReepers. We may disagree on other topics, but this is our hill, on which we will all stand and die together. Rudy could not be the GOP nominee for that reason alone.

2. Many questioned whether Jim Rob should take such a drastic course of action..banning hundreds of people. Some felt that it would be better to engage in ongoing debate and discussion among ourselves. That was never the question. Indeed, it was never up for debate. I lost several good friends, of many years standing, that day, but I never questioned his absolute right to take that course of action. It is his website; he is free to run it as he sees fit, and those who can’t abide with his decisions have the freedom to go elsewhere.

Now that we have that out of the way, let us turn our attention to “The Donald.”

Trump is NOT a conservative.

He is not even a Republican. He was a registered Democrat from 2001-2009.

He has given far more to Democrats than to Republicans.

For most of his life, he was strongly, and proudly pro-choice. IOW, he was OK with killing babies.

He will NOT pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee, and will not promise to NOT run a third-party race.

What Trump IS, is a narcissistic, megalomaniacal, bloviating asshole. It is beyond me how so many self-proclaimed conservatives here at FR could be supporting this clown. He is utterly unfit to serve as NYC Sanitation Commissioner, let alone as President.

That is of course their absolute right to do so.

But what I fail to understand is why Jim Robinson has not as yet banished all the “Trumpsters” from FR? What, pray tell, makes “the Donald” acceptable here, whereas Giuliani was not?

Jim seems to be quite supportive of Trump, if you have been paying attention.

You’ve apparently missed JR’s recent “Go Trump, Go Cruz” posts.

Because Trump is doing a wonderful service.

He’s an awful candidate and I oppose him becoming the R nominee.

However, his CANDIDACY is wonderful. He’s making the Republicans address real issues. He’s changing the dialogue. His refreshing honesty and directness has yielded ever-increasing poll numbers, and may give a lesson to people I do support (Ted Cruz).

I am against banning Trump supporters at this time. The man is doing a world of good.

There’s about 50 more “Who do you think you are” and “I loves Trump cause he blurts out shit that my id whispers to me constantly” stuff. If you want more of it, just go back and read Laz’s post 50 more times…
To: ken5050

While I agree with you on Trump – who is not a conservative and has made other attempts at running for office where he washed out because it was clear that he was just a mouth with no mind, and not even a conservative mouth. – I don’t think JR eliminated Rudy supporters as such, but just because they were such pests.

Trump posters are falling into the pest category, btw.
