Default A good Republican

“This one” is telling the truth and then quitting...to get medical help for alcoholism.

This Republican Party is destroying itself, I wonder what will be crawling out of the ashes and what it will be called. (Will it be in Russian?)

Republican Congressman Says Russia Helped Fan Flames of Racial Tension in Charlottesville
By DANIEL POLITI
AUG 11, 20183:42 PM

A Republican member of Congress who represents Charlottesville claimed Saturday that Russians played a key role in fanning the flames of racial divisions at the deadly Unite the Right rally last year. In an interview with CNN, Rep. Tom Garrett, said FBI officials told him about the role Russia played in the deadly clashes last year.

“I sat in a closed session briefing—probably two months ago—about Charlottesville, with the director of the FBI among others, and asked if Russian intermeddling had do with fomenting the flames of what happened in Charlottesville,” he said. “I was told, ‘Yes, it did.’ I was asked if this was classified, they said, ‘No, it is not’.”



It’s unclear why Garrett waited until the weekend marking the one-year anniversary of the deadly rally to reveal this information. But he used it as an example of how Russia seeks to sow divisions among Americans. “The Russian intermeddling is seeking to pit Americans against Americans, to undermine confidence in Western-style democracies,” Garrett told CNN. “They use events like this divisive racial fight, which really ignores the commonality that we as Americans have with one another regardless of our race or ethnicity or religion.”

BuzzFeed carried out an analysis of almost three million tweets from accounts tied to the “shadowy” Internet Research Agency based in St. Petersburg and found that Russian trolls went into overdrive in the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville last year. “They were already busy before white supremacists gathered a year ago in Charlottesville, Virginia, for the Unite the Right rally,” notes BuzzFeed. “But after the event erupted into conflict, culminating in the death of counterprotester Heather Heyer on Aug. 12, the trolls fanned the flames, blaming the violence on Antifa and Black Lives Matter.” A few days later, the accounts went silent, presumably because Twitter banned them, although the company won’t confirm that.

Garrett, a first-term congressman, has said he won’t seek reelection amid numerous ethics investigations. Garrett said he wants to focus on getting treatment for alcoholism.

Obviously you don't know history. Without government and rule of law you end up with feudalism or warlords. Give that a try and get back to us on "danger"!

Go on tell everyone how much you trust Trump then.LOL
I was at a war memorial today. There was 4 ww1 cannons ,each pointed nth east ,west .south. yeah and guess what the centre piece was?
A SPIRE,you have those in important places 2 dont ya.
Know what they are and how they started?
Obvoiusly the history you learn is inaccurate and taught by the corrupt upper tier.so keep believing suckers!youll get marched right into war under the aggreement of 2 fighting country's with the sole aim of lowering population.it aint me i aint no millionaire son.
Ohh by the way the only other person i know of that knows about how that centre piece came about,keeps an eye on skatelog but isnt an active member.I say to that person hi , and don't let it beat ya.
yeah recent history is always being modified and re written for the sake of covering asses.but that spire is ancient history still controlling the now,funny how fools buy with their eyes isnt it?
Trump is your president and most likely the best one you've had in a long time, if you look at the economy.
And finally govt and rule of law you say?hillarious concept that wired.Law has to be pervieved as uniform and fair.but there is clearly two laws .1 for them and 1 for us.Goverrnment would be fine if they could survive on a level playing field.Im afraid you havent got the foresight to see that that concept is immpossible.
If all the criminals and law breakers were in jail you would have no parlaiment.You will need to find a whole new bunch of puppets to take the blame for the Shi7 decisions of the upper elite.
Ha ha most useless invention "

ive had a half change of heart, i was always hoping for dwayne johnson to lead the republicans into 2020.the wound needs full exposing before it can be dressed and healed.
now if the real people in charge have dirt on the rock, then i cant see him giving it a go
the politicians have all had skeletons in the closet and cant be trusted with peoples lives.

Pretty sure he will be a 2 term president, heard on the radio today that the unemployment rate was the lowest since 1969. I would say that was a great accomplishment. MAGA! Voting soon again..... REP all the way....

Take a look at the plot of the unemployment rate from 2008 to 2018 and you will see a huge consistent drop from 2009 to 2018. During the Trump presidency the rate trend is simply a basic continuation of the trend established earlier. Trump did not cause the trend... he just did not kill it off. Actually, the trend is now flattening out.

Let's look at the facts, listening to the "State" propaganda has proven To be false.
Yes a big chart, easy to understand, it's the actual unemployment rate.

Look at the upward spikes, and notice they were during the periods of Republican presidents, then look at the downward falls and notice they were during Democratic presidential periods.
BTW, Drump is claiming credit for Obama's economic recovery, the real numbers show that Drumph is throwing the country and world into a deep recession, his Tax cuts???? His addition to the deficit 1.2 Trillion so far, his trade wars, his tariffs, Drumph is toxic, and the Drumph's are fools, but don't worry, Democrats will pick up the pieces, once again.

And remember, every woman and person of color and man that "thinks" will be voting, and they outnumber the White Religious Right and the Drumpster's that would rather be Russian that presently are suffocating this country.


Jan 20, 1953. Dwight D. Eisenhower. ...
Jan 20, 1961. John F. Kennedy. ...
Nov 22, 1963. Lyndon B. Johnson. ...
Jan 20, 1969. Richard M. Nixon. ...
Aug 9, 1974. Gerald R. Ford. ...
Jan 20, 1977. Jimmy Carter. President Jimmy Carter (Democrat) served as President from 1977-1981. ...
Jan 20, 1981. Ronald Reagan. ...
Jan 20, 1989. George H.W. Bush.
Bush Jr is responsible for the high spike in 2008-2009, the one that Obama reversed, the one that almost stopped the US economy, remember? (That's a trick question, all Democrats do all Republicans dont)

The Catholic church is the mother harlot. A false church with man made saints and rituals. No need for a pope to intercede between God and man. Only Christ.

English Standard Version Matthew 23:9
And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.

I can tell what God had to say to the Catholic Church.

So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.

This is the elevated clergy. And that notion of being elevated is what got them into trouble.

Why is it after I post the reality of the problem with a or any Republican president (recession), the Republicans immediately turn to Science Fiction and treat that subject as reality, while ignoring the actual reality they are living with in?
Spouting fictitious nonsense doesn't pay the taxes and tariffs and medical bills and raising gasoline prices this Republican party is presently creating, I'm thinking the mage of this Republican party should be...

you are describing the phenomenon known as Cognitive Dissonance.

basically, someone cannot accept they are "wrong" about something so they invent ways to be "right". Ego self-protection triumps over reason.

we need more of the 4th image.









need more people that can listen/reason/reconsider

Yeah, I saw this in a video the other day. A guy was asking some women why they were protesting. They gave a reason, but couldn't justify it, or give one piece of supporting information. They ended up falling back on, well, we agree with each other.

Kind of funny. As a Christian, I have never held it against people who don't believe. I always accepted, that to them, I am a nut. And I am. Christianity is logical within its' frame. But, getting INSIDE this frame requires something logically irrational. A leap of faith.

Antifa and socialist... yeah, I would say they have a problem with Cognitive Dissonance when all they have to do is move to another country and leave this one alone. Whats really bad is that the war they are seeking, they really don't want. They will be driven out and shut down. All they can do is try to create a very large issue and try to get the dems in control to make a takeover and disarm legal gun owners that have done nothing wrong. Then the commies will have control, that is how Hitler did it. Funny that Hitler also called the opposing party the very thing that they were.... Commies calling us communists... right.... I get it...

from the second image...

"when confronted with challenging new information, most people seek to preserve their current understanding of the world by rejecting, explaining away, or avoiding new information or by convincing themselves that no conflict really exists. "

Why would the group trying to save the country leave it to the group that is actively giving the country to Russia?

All evidence (facts) point to this president encouraging violence and disunity, he is at war with the 1'st amendment, he wants to do away with journalist, look at what Saudi Arabia just did to a US journalist, and he's defending Saudi Arabia, Congress will do what it did with Russia(sanctions), and Trump will ignore Congress, do you see a pattern, I thought not.
Now this president is trying to do away with Americans right to protest, first the press, now the right to protest, Democrats are being called a MOB, this nation protects the right to protest, btw, antfa means anti-facist, which is what the Republican party has become, FACIST'S, go ahead, wear that moniker with pride, none of your posts are intelligent, this one is more CoCo for CoCoNuts than any of quantloo's and he has at his credit a fourth grade education.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pointing the finger at President Donald Trump and the state’s Republicans for the violence that broke out Friday night after the speech of the leader of a far-right group. Cuomo told reporters he couldn’t fathom why Republicans would have invited a man who leads an organization that has been designated as a hate group to speak at their Metropolitan Republican Club. The Proud Boys is made up of men who describe themselves as “western chauvinists.”

Cuomo said the invite extended to Proud Boys founder Gavin McInness is part of a “political tactic because what they’re trying to do is fire up their base” for the midterm elections. The New York governor said New York Republicans “knew what was going to happen” when they invited the group to speak. “It was either one of the dumbest acts or one of the most malicious and incendiary political acts I’ve ever seen,” the governor said Sunday in a conference call with reporters. “You knew who the Proud Boys were. What did they think they were doing if not furthering the President’s political tactic of polarization?”


Cuomo connected the invitation extended to McInness as an extension of the effort by the GOP to demonize Democrats. “They invite the Proud Boys to the heart of Manhattan. Then they stand up and complained when the club was vandalized,” the governor said. “Why? Because they’re making the point that the Democrats are an angry mob which is just what the President is saying.”

As Cuomo called on the FBI to investigate the violent clashes Friday night that included apparent beatings by members of the Proud Boys against anti-fascist protesters, he also directly blamed Trump for creating the atmosphere where this type of violence could become a reality. “The bottom line is that I hold the President responsible for demonizing differences, fanning the flames of racism and division and creating a fire of hatred and violence,” Cuomo said. “These vile acts of racism, division and discrimination are repugnant to American values, and have no place in our state.”

The state Republican Party dismissed Cuomo’s comments as “outrageous,” saying it puts his partisanship in evidence. “It’s unconscionable that when Republicans were attacked and threatened, Governor Cuomo said absolutely nothing,” spokeswoman Jessica Proud said in a statement. “Violence of any kind has no place in society, yet the governor—who is charged with ensuring everyone’s personal safety and property is protected—only thinks those rights should be afforded to Democrats. It’s not surprising coming from the man who said conservatives have no place in the state, but it’s nonetheless outrageous.”
