When I first looked, I assumed it was someone trying to be funny and creating an absurd spoof.  I realized it's an actual Trump site.  Frightening.

Just another example of him accusing others of what he is doing.  Hey CNN, you put out a fake poll that is misleading and biased! 

It's quite amazing actually - and not in a good way.

I didn't know where to put this but Devin Nunes' attorney admitted today that he's at a dead end trying to learn the identity of the Twitter account "Devin Nunes' Cow," against whom Nunes has filed a $250 million suit for slander. Twitter won't help Nunes locate the person, whose account has 700,000 followers.

"The only thing worse than suing a cow is losing to one."

Maybe we will see this in a tweet later today:

Daniel Dale @ddale8 6m

Trump says Americans want law and order even if they don't say it: "Some of them don't even know that's what they want, but that's what they want."

"We must build on our heritage, not tear it down". I'm sure this will play well to the 35-40% of the population that is his base, but that speech was tone deaf to the other 60%.

Overall it was an appalling speech. He lists the names of blacks killed by police, noting he just met with the families, then later talks about how great the stock market is and the latest great retail sales numbers.  He turned this into another campaign rally speech.

Hillary isn’t going to prison. There is no ObamaGate. There is no border wall. There is no migrant, terrorist caravan. Beautiful healthcare didn’t arrive. North Korea still has nuclear weapons. The tax cut was for the rich. The coronavirus didn’t go down to zero. 

He is a fraud.

From excerpt of Bolton’s book... link

“In their meet­ing in Os­aka on June 29, Xi told Trump that the U.S.-China re­la­tion­ship was the most im­por­tant in the world. He said that some (un­named) Amer­ican po­lit­i­cal fig­ures were mak­ing er­ro­neous judg­ments by call­ing for a new cold war with China.

“Whether Xi meant to fin­ger the De­moc­rats or some of us sit­ting on the U.S. side of the ta­ble, I don’t know, but Trump im­me­di­ately as­sumed that Xi meant the De­moc­rats. Trump said ap­prov­ingly that there was great hos­til­ity to China among the De­moc­rats. Trump then, stun­ningly, turned the con­ver­sa­tion to the com­ing U.S. pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, al­lud­ing to Chi­na’s eco­nomic ca­pa­bil­ity and plead­ing with Xi to en­sure he’d win. He stressed the im­por­tance of farm­ers and in­creased Chi­nese pur­chases of soy­beans and wheat in the elec­toral out­come. I would print Trump’s ex­act words, but the gov­ern­ment’s pre­pub­li­ca­tion re­view process has de­cided oth­er­wise.“

WaPo has some stuff from the Bolton book too...

...“Bolton recounts numerous private conversations Trump had with other leaders that revealed the limits of his knowledge. He recalls Trump asking Kelly if Finland is part of Russia. In a meeting with then-British Prime Minister Theresa May in 2018, a British official referred to the United Kingdom as a “nuclear power,” and Trump interjects: “Oh, are you a nuclear power?” Bolton adds that he could tell the question about Britain, which has long maintained a nuclear arsenal, “was not intended as a joke.”

...Bolton attributes a litany of shocking statements to the president. Trump said invading Venezuela would be “cool” and that the South American nation was “really part of the United States.” Bolton says Trump kept confusing the current and former presidents of Afghanistan, while asking Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to help him strike a deal with Iran. And Trump told Xi that Americans were clamoring for him to change constitutional rules to serve more than two terms, according to the book. He also describes a summer 2019 meeting in New Jersey where Trump says journalists should be jailed so they have to divulge their sources: “These people should be executed. They are scumbags,” Trump said, according to Bolton's account.

Meh, who cares what Bolton has to say now. He had a chance to do the right thing and chose not to. Now we are supposed to praise him and give him our money?

I agree that he didn't do the right thing when he had the chance but that doesn't mean we should ignore what he has to say.

John Bolton to ABC News:

"I don't think he's fit for office. I don't think he has the competence to carry out the job. There really isn't any guiding principle that I was able to discern other than what's good for Donald Trump's reelection."

"If he thought he could get a photo opportunity with Kim Jong Un at the demilitarized zone in Korea, there was considerable emphasis on the photo opportunity and the press reaction to it, and little or no emphasis on what such meetings did" for the U.S.

This can't be an accident, can it?

Facebook takes down Trump ads featuring symbol identical to one Nazis used for concentration camp prisoners

Quote

 

...

The ads featured an upside-down red triangle along with the words: "Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups are running through our streets and causing absolute mayhem. They are DESTROYING our cities and rioting — it's absolute madness." The ads called on supporters to stand by Mr. Trump's decision to designate Antifa — a loose collective of anti-fascist protest movements — as a terrorist organization.

According to the Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Nazis used an identical inverted triangle symbol for camp prisoners, with a color coding system. Red triangles, like those seen in the Trump ads, identified political prisoners, while Jewish political prisoners were classified by a yellow triangle beneath a red triangle. Different colored triangles were used for communists, homosexuals and other categories of prisoners.

The Washington Post first reported on the ads and their connection to Nazi symbolism.

"The Nazis used red triangles to identify their political victims in concentration camps," Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt wrote on Twitter. "Using it to attack political opponents is highly offensive. @POTUS' campaign needs to learn its history, as ignorance is no excuse for using Nazi-related symbols."

Don't even THINK about replying to this.

There are days when my knees and ankles have me very much anti kneeling so I think we need to have the candidates kneel and then see if they can get back up.   Maybe as part of a presidential combine.

One knee surgery, so my opinion on kneeling flip-flops depending on which knee we're discussing.  Might as well call me John Kerry.

Saw my first "rally" of this cycle on the side of the road..large intersection in my area.  Question:  There's plenty to attack Biden over.  Why do they insist on picking the areas where Trump is actually worse than Biden or (at best) in the same boat as Biden?  That makes absolutely no sense :lmao: 

They were in the middle of setting up all their flags, banners etc and an absolute deluge came out of the sky, so I had that going for me which was nice.

Yep, does someone like Bolton really need the money from book sales? I would think I would prefer having the legacy of doing the right thing for the country instead of having another $500k in the bank, but maybe I would think differently if I was in that position

He has been oddly quiet on Twitter today, one tweet about father's day 8 hours ago, and the other, last hour, about how "The Democrat House wants to pass a Bill this week that will destroy our police."  Looks like he hasn't yet gotten over the public humiliation of that poorly attended rally.

Bolton having to explain to Trump the most basic things over and over and over again (with nothing sinking in) reminded me of that Simpson's episode where the family enters the Witness Relocation Program and the FBI agents try to get Homer to remember his new name.
