.Trump accuses Democrats of ‘breaking in’ during first rally since Mar-a-Lago raid.


Sept. 3 (UPI) -- Former President Donald Trump on Saturday night gave his first rally since Mar-a-Lago, his residence in Florida, was raided by FBI agents last month searching for classified documents he took from the White House at the end of his presidency. Trump, while stumping for Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Monstriano, accused Democrats of "weaponizing the Justice Department and the FBI" and "raiding and breaking into the homes of their political opponents."

The former president said that the FBI searched through the closet of his wife, Melania, as well as his son Barron Trump's bedroom.

"The FBI and Justice Department have become vicious monsters controlled by radical left scoundrels, lawyers and the media, who tell them what to do and when to do it," Trump said.

Trump tried to describe the raid a persecution of American citizens, not just him, using a propaganda technique where the speaker identifies the listeners as victims.

Barr, the attorney general under Donald Trump, on Friday defended the FBI search of the former president's Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida last month.

"People say that this is unprecedented, but it's also unprecedented for a president to take all this classified information and put it in a country club," Barr said. "How long is the government going to try and get that back?" Barr added.

"The facts are starting to show that they were being jerked around."
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's 'personality disorder' has infected the Republican Party: conservative.

In his column for the Atlantic, former George W. Bush administration official and longtime conservative commentator Peter Wehner claims that Donald Trump has done irreparable damage to the Republican Party because it has adopted some of his worst characteristics and tactics.

Pointing out that the Republican Party he joined stood for law and order and moral values, the columnist claimed the current iteration has thrown it away because of their "... fealty to Trump despite his ceaseless lying and dehumanizing rhetoric, his misogyny and appeals to racism, his bullying and conspiracy theories."

"Something malicious has occurred since Trump won the nomination in 2016. Six years ago, Republicans jettisoned their previous moral commitments in order to align themselves with the MAGA movement. Today, they have inverted them. Lawmakers, candidates, and those in the right-wing media ecosystem celebrate and imitate Trump’s nihilism, cynicism, and cruelty," he wrote before adding, " what was once considered a bug is now a feature. This is the result of individuals’ and institutions’ accommodation of one moral transgression after another after another. With each moral compromise, the next one—a worse one—becomes easier to accept. Conduct that would have horrified Republicans in the past now causes them, at best, to shrug their shoulders; at worst, they delight in it."

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 threatens to sue Jan. 6 Committee for not investigating vote fraud claims debunked by his own officials.

There is no evidence of any kind that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

On Monday night, in a series of posts to his Truth Social platform, former President Donald Trump touted his new $475 million lawsuit against CNN for calling his election conspiracy theories "the Big Lie" — and vowed to take it even further by suing the House January 6 Select Committee next.

"We may bring appropriate action against the Unselect Committee of January 6th because, notwithstanding overwhelming evidence, they REFUSED to investigate the massive Presidential Election Fraud which took place, but only investigate and harass the people and Patriots who complained and asked questions about it," wrote Trump. "The rigging and stealing of our Presidential Election was perhaps The Crime Of The Century, and look at what is happening to our Country now!"

Trump went on in another post to blame everyone but himself for the January 6 attack.

"The Unselect Committee has refused to acknowledge, as was done by the Biden Inspector General at the Department of Defense, and others, that days ahead of January 6th, I recommended and authorized thousands of troops to be deployed to ensure that there was peace, safety, and security at the Capitol and throughout the Country," wrote Trump. "That offer of National Guard was rejected by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and Mayor Bowser of Washington, D.C. — the law requires their request, they failed to make one, and in turn failed the Country."

Most of Trump's claim is false. Mayor Muriel Bowser did in fact request the National Guard, Pelosi did not reject an offer of the National Guard, she didn't have any authority over Guard movements in the first place, and Trump didn't activate the Guard at all on January 6, with them being deployed only after former Vice President Mike Pence intervened and went outside the chain of command to order them to help.

Well, so much for the 'red wave'...

.Trump blames McConnell for GOP election losses: ‘He blew the midterms’.

Former President Trump sought to pin blame on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) Sunday after Republicans lost the battle for control of the Senate.

While the GOP is still favored to win the House, the party fell far short of its expectations heading into Tuesday, and many Republicans have blamed the former president and the candidates he backed in key swing states.

However, Trump to his social media site on Sunday to make the case that the midterms were McConnell’s fault, due in part to the Senate GOP’s campaign arm not spending big on Blake Masters’ bid to unseat Sen. Mark Kelly drink in Arizona.

“It’s Mitch McConnell’s fault. Spending money to defeat great Republican candidates instead of backing Blake Masters and others was a big mistake,” Trump wrote, referring to pouring money into Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s (R-Alaska) race against Trump-backed Kelly Tshibaka.

“He blew the Midterms, and everyone despises him and his otherwise lovely wife, Coco Chow!” Trump said.

McConnell has feuded with Trump since the Senate GOP leader denounced the former president on the Senate floor following the Capitol riots and Trump’s false claims the 2020 election was stolen.

Republicans lost the Senate on Saturday after Democrats clinched a key seat in Nevada. If Democrats win a Dec. 6 runoff in Georgia, the party may have a larger majority than it did in the last Congress.

McConnell has been tightlipped since Tuesday, but predicted a close Senate race, in part due to the “quality” of the GOP’s Senate candidates, many of which were selected by Trump.

Masters, who was endorsed by Trump, had backed the former president’s claims about the 2020 election even though he later tried to backtrack.

Other Senate candidates who lost, including Don Bolduc in New Hampshire, had espoused similar rhetoric about the 2020 election.
