Echos of Tulsa in Tampa...

The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.

Trump is no longer 'loved nor feared' — he’s just become a ‘joke’: conservative


In his new column for the Daily Beast, conservative Matt Lewis claims that, as Donald Trump’s re-election hopes continue to collapse, his attempts to salvage what is left of his campaign has turned him into a “laughingstock.”

Lewis, who left the Republican Party due to the president, noted that the president recently appeared on Fox News in a “rambling” interview likely meant to make viewers forget his disastrous interview with Jonathan Swan of Axios, and ended up coming off worse, saying “it became clear that the president can’t hit anything other than softballs.”

According to Lewis, he is getting a sense that the tide has turned against Trump — who he believes is headed towards defeat in November — and that the president has become a national joke.

Trump angrily denies trusting Putin over ‘sleazebags’ in US intelligence

President Donald Trump defended his relationship with Russia’s president Vladimir Putin and his related attacks U.S. law enforcement and intelligence services, which he slurred as “dirty cops” and “sleazebags.”

The president tweeted out the attacks Tuesday morning in apparent response to a New York Times Magazine report about his battled with U.S. intelligence agencies, and resumed his long-standing grudges against various officials who have questioned his relationship to Putin.

“John Bolton, one of the dumbest people I’ve met in government and sadly, I’ve met plenty, states often that I respected, and even trusted, Vladimir Putin of Russia more than those in our Intelligence Agencies,” Trump tweeted.

“While of course that is not true, if the first people you met from so called American Intelligence were Dirty Cops who have now proven to be sleazebags at the highest level like James Comey, proven liar James Clapper, & perhaps the lowest of them all, Wacko John Brennan who headed the CIA, you could perhaps understand my reluctance to embrace!” he added.

"everything but a signed and notarized confession"

Conservative calls new Senate Russia findings ‘everything but a signed and notarized confession’ from Trump

Conservative Bush speechwriter David Frum took to Twitter after the release of the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee findings of the Russia investigation. The committee found evidence that there was coordination between the Russians and President Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016.

Frum described it as being “everything but a signed and notarized confession” from Trump.

Former U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance explained that in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, he was bound by evidence that would be admissible in court to reach a conclusion. So, while he couldn’t prove the coordination, “the GOP gave Trump a pass on soliciting, accepting and benefiting from Russian help to win. Fail.”

The ninth commandment reads, "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor." Yet Trump supporters just don't care how many times he lies to them. He lies about things Obama did that he now takes credit for, he lies about people, he lies about easily verified events, but his "Christian" base only hear what HE says regardless of fact.

It should be noted, although the pledge was written by a Baptist minister


Trump spreads false claim Democrats dropped God from Pledge of Allegiance

Claim first spread on Facebook, which flagged it as untrue
Pledge was recited in entirety on three nights of DNC


Before playing golf on Saturday, Donald Trump took time to spread a false claim about God on Twitter.

“The Democrats took the word GOD out of the Pledge of Allegiance at the Democrat [sic] National Convention,” the president wrote.


“At first I thought they made a mistake, but it wasn’t. It was done on purpose. Remember Evangelical Christians, and ALL, this is where they are coming from – it’s done. Vote Nov[ember] 3!”

Though Trump’s own religious convictions have often been called into question, evangelical Christians form a key bloc of support as he seeks re-election against Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

As the website Politifact pointed out, the claim about the Democrats and the Pledge of Allegiance spread online after Peggy Hubbard, an unsuccessful Republican senatorial candidate in Illinois, made it in a Facebook post on 20 August.

The social media giant, which partners with Politifact, flagged the post as untrue.

“Some Democratic caucus members omitted ‘one nation under God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance during [convention] meetings,” the fact-checking website wrote. “But the line was not excluded from any of the convention’s primetime televised spots.

“On the first night … participants sang the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ instead of saying the Pledge of Allegiance. On the second, third and fourth nights, ‘under God’ was included in the pledge.”

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown

FACT: President Trump promised Ohioans, "If I’m elected, you won’t lose one plant."
Then, GM closed the Lordstown plant and laid off thousands of workers - and Trump didn’t lift a FINGER to protect them.
Just in March this year, President Trump didn’t even know that GM sold the Lordstown plant - after claiming he’d bring their jobs back.
Don't be fooled. Trump never cared about the Lordstown workers. Instead, he broke his promises and betrayed them. #TrumpBetraysWorkers

Trump, the stable genius, has only the best words!

Last month, in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Trump offered this up when asked about four more years:

"One of the things that will be really great -- the word experience is still good, I always say talent is more important than experience, I've always said that -- but the word experience is a very important word, a very important meaning."


On Thursday night, President Donald Trump accepted the Republican presidential nomination for a second term. Twenty-four hours earlier, he had a very hard time saying exactly what he would do with another four years.

"But so I think, I think it would be, I think it would be very, very, I think we'd have a very, very solid, we would continue what we're doing, we'd solidify what we've done, and we have other things on our plate that we want to get done," Trump told The New York Times' Peter Baker

TRUMP COMMITS A FELONY

TRUMP COMMITS A FELONY BY TELLING HIS SUPPORTERS TO VOTE TWICE, WHICH IS FRAUD

President Donald Trump openly told his supporters to vote twice in this year’s presidential election during an event in North Carolina, breaking the law in the process and demonstrating that the only real voter fraud is coming from his camp.

Trump has been railing against vote by mail even though it has been a proven method of voting since the Civil War and several states have been doing it for years with little to no instances of voter fraud.

It’s obvious that Trump is desperately trying to suppress the vote since Democratic nominee Joe Biden is beating him in the polls. To that end, Trump’s desperation to win and avoid prosecution resulted in him resorting to telling his supporters to commit voter fraud by mailing in a vote and then voting again in person.

“So let them send it in and let them go vote, and if their system’s as good as they say it is, then obviously they won’t be able to vote,” Trump said. “If it isn’t tabulated, they’ll be able to vote. So that’s the way it is. And that’s what they should do."

Again, this is voter fraud and telling voters to commit voter fraud is a felony.

YOU ARE FAKE NEWS....YOU ONLY LISTEN TO MSM.......

FOX NEWS AND OAN SHOWED THE COMPLETE STATEMENT WHICH CNN AND OTHERS EDITED.

Many wonder today why the Republican party does nothing to defeat the treasonous
schemes of the Democrats. It is because the pope’s Jesuits have thoroughly
infiltrated the Republican party as well as the Democratic party. Many wonder why
the news media lie so much to support and protect the Democrats. It is because the
pope’s Jesuits have thoroughly infiltrated the news media. The news media and
schools and colleges, with their lies and propaganda, have so conditioned the
people of the country that they are unable to recognize what has been done to them.
Victory for the Jesuits seems very near. The Jesuits are like a cancer that has
pervaded nearly every fiber of the society of the United States. We are being
defeated by the enemy within.

For many years the Jesuits have prevented the United States from developing
additional sources of energy within its own territory. Exploiting the vast oilfields on
the Alaskan north slope, that probably contain more oil than the entire middle east,
is forbidden. New nuclear power plants, the safest source of electric energy ever
discovered, are not permitted. There is no end to the lies people have been made to
believe about Nuclear energy. The environment is used as the club to subdue the
people of the country into going along with this idiocy. Modern technology is able to
develop these sources of power without any damage to the environment. France
gets 80% of its power from nuclear power plants without any problems. Needless to
say, without sufficient energy, the United States will not be able to defend itself. All
the papacy has to do is cut off the oil supply from the middle east.

The United States is now starting to feel the pinch of the energy shortage the Jesuits
have created. People have experienced blackouts over large areas as power is shut
off to stay within the limits of generating capacity. Today, instead of constructing
additional nuclear power plants, some of these plants are being dismantled! Will the
people of the United States be able to wake up in time to prevent the coming
national tragedy?

Not only in the United States is this treachery being perpetrated by the papacy, but
they are secretly at work all over the world to subvert all the nations of the world.

"And all the world wondered after the beast." Rev 13:3 last part.

Please tell me, if you ONLY listen to FOX and OAN, how can you know what "MSM" is putting out? Seriously, how do you know what MSM is doing if you don't watch or listen to it?

Please post a link that shows "THE COMPLETE STATEMENT". I have seen the entire video and I have seen his explanation video.

Trump Calls for Firing of Fox Reporter Who Confirmed Atlantic Article on Veterans

President Donald Trump has called for reporter Jennifer Griffin, the national security correspondent for Fox News Channel, to be fired for her reporting on claims made about Trump in an article published Thursday by The Atlantic.

The article claimed the president referred to American World War I veterans buried in France's Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, as "losers" and "suckers" back in 2018, a claim which Griffin admitted she had not confirmed, while claiming other details of the article had been confirmed by some of her sources.

The article, titled Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are 'Losers' and 'Suckers,' was reportedly based on several sources who spoke on condition of anonymity, The Atlantic noted.

Griffin claimed one or two of her anonymous sources had confirmed several details noted in The Atlantic story, in addition to other related details about Trump in a series of several posts published Thursday on her official Twitter account.

She told Fox News' Special Report host Bret Baier that she could not confirm "the most salacious" part of the article, referring to the claim that Trump referred to the American war veterans buried in northern France as "losers" and "suckers."


On Saturday, Trump noted these claims were "all refuted by many witnesses. Jennifer Griffin should be fired for this kind of reporting. Never even called us for comment. @FoxNews is gone!," on his official Twitter account.

Griffin also told Baier that her anonymous sources confirmed the president had referred to Americans who fought in the Vietnam War as "suckers."

She claimed to have confirmed that Trump questioned why veterans fought in the war, asking "What's in it for them? They don't make any money."

"According to one former senior Trump administration official: "When the President spoke about the Vietnam War, he said, 'It was a stupid war. Anyone who went was a sucker'."

"This former official heard the President say about American veterans: 'What's in it for them? They don't make any money.' Source: 'It was a character flaw of the President. He could not understand why someone would die for their country, not worth it.'

While touting US troops, Trump ad shows Russian-made fighter jets


Following reports on Trump denigrating military service, an ad from a fundraising arm of the Trump campaign tried to support the troops. It didn't go well.

It's often difficult to predict which political stories will break through and broadly affect public attitudes, but the controversy surrounding Donald Trump's denigration of military service appears to have had some effect.

Just two days ago, for example, a national ABC News/Ipsos poll asked which of the two major-party presidential candidates has more respect for the United States military. Joe Biden's advantage over the Republican incumbent was considerable: 61% to 37%. It's easy to imagine those results looking quite different were it not for the striking reporting two weeks ago in The Atlantic.

Team Trump appears to realize that it has a problem on this front, so it launched a new digital ad campaign touting support for Americans in the military. And while the idea behind the ads may have made sense, Politico noted the problem in the execution.

A digital ad released by a fundraising arm of the Trump campaign on Sept. 11 calling on people to "support our troops" uses a stock photo of Russian-made fighter jets and weapons. The ad, which was made by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, features silhouettes of three soldiers walking as a fighter jet flies over them. The ad first appeared on Sept. 8 and ran until Sept. 12.


Ruslan Pukhov, director of the Centre for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies in Moscow, confirmed to Politico that the planes are MiG-29s -- utilized by Russia since the Cold War -- and also that one of the soldiers in the Republican ad appears to be carrying an AK-74 assault rifle.

Complicating matters, this latest revelation sounds familiar for a reason. Remember this one from July?

A new advertisement from President Donald Trump's re-election campaign features an image of a policeman being attacked, designed to show "chaos [and] violence" in the United States -- but it's actually a photo from a 2014 Ukrainian pro-democracy protest. The ad compares "public safety," shown as Trump speaking with police officials, to the "chaos [and] violence" of the Ukrainian protest image.


The protesters in the image were taking a stand against Viktor Yanukovych, in part over his ties to Moscow.

What an unfortunate coincidence that this has now happened twice in three months.
