"Maybe he’s lying like all politicians do. I’m not expecting much. But I know ending the madness of the Left matters to me most of all."

Beautifully put. You don't need to believe that Donald Trump can Make America Great again to vote for him. Just that he will make America kind of "normal" again like it used to be in the good old days.

Even "Make America Normal Again" seems like a tall mountain to climb considering on how badly American culture has been debased.

Ben, I assume your “grab them” comment refers to Bill Clinton, accused of rape and multiple sexual assaults, vilifying the victims, proven liar about sexual misconduct in the Oval Office with a 22-year-old intern. The Democrats still adore him, but then he was a strong supporter of abortion, so the entire Democrat political machine defended him, including feminists and the media.

I never saw Obama as a messiah. Trump worshipers made a video which Trump reposted: "And on June 14, 1946, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, 'I need a caretaker.' So God gave us Trump.

God said, ‘I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, fix this country, work all day, fight the Marxists, eat supper, then go to the Oval Office and stay up past midnight at a meeting of the heads of state.’ So God made Trump.” It continues: created by God to "fight the Marxists" and "call out the fake news" "arms strong enough to rustle the Deep State and yet gentle enough to deliver his own grandchild. for their tongues as sharp as a serpent's." "arms strong enough to rustle the Deep State and yet gentle enough to deliver his own grandchild." LOL!

And yet you still can't argue on his policies and accomplishments. The mere fact that you just dedicated such a long expanse of text to *prove* that you *aren't a cultist*, betrays your dishonesty, mightily, lol.

And there were people who thought Obama could control the seas and was the Messiah. Even TV commentators who should have been neutral saying Obama’s election gave them “Tingles” up their legs. Are you like that, are you one of them?

NOPE, you are addled and indoctrinated if you believe what you said.

We all know how not perfect Trump is, but being too direct, speaking truth without thinking, coarse language and mean tweets as well as caring about America , instead of dissing America, makes Trump our best choice.

There is no cult and no one worships him. We would like a smother more polished fellow, but Trump is the best choice available , if you can actually think for yourself.

Based on your comment I assume you lt others provide you with your opinion and do your thinking for you.

The real cult, the one that they project onto Trump's supporters, are the alleged millions of *voters, who quite literally elder-abused a long-known dementia victim---and twice failed Pres candidate, ousted by even the media over his plagiarism and pathological lying---into an office THEY KNEW he couldn't execute.

You do realize that that is a Paul Harvey bit from the 1960's called "God Made A Farmer," everyone who's of a certain age knows it, and they just used AI to substitute "farmer" with "Trump."

okay, fair enough. btw, as a side bar, about one year after Mike's brag, the boys got drunk and recorded the 'Beach Boys Party' album, and when they sang the same line in "I get Around," --"and we never missed yet with the ...girls we pick up on the street" they answered in the background: "not much..." so, you see, there was some knowing humanity there.

I wonder if you guys can admit something today, as well, and give our CA governor some deserved credit. last week, there was a protest where the Golden Gate Bridge was blocked. okay, I'm anti-war, no problem so far. Police clear, etc. not this time, because they brought and abandoned some cheap cars, brought out some buckets with concrete, rebarr and chaines, so that the bridge was paralyzed for hours before safety-considering responders could cut and weld out. The recommendation today is that those kept for more than 3 hours, should file an unlawful imprisonment lawsuit against these bleephole protesters. I 100 percebnt agree that there needs to be a precedent that just because you're blue team, and you pretend a back-patting moral purpose, you do not have the right to do anything you want if it curtails the civil liberties of others. do you think Fox News will say, 'way to go, Gavin'? They should.

Our Constitution grants every US Citizen a right to unrestricted travel. Anyone blocking roads is therefore violating your Constitutional rights - a form of "kidnapping" or at least restraint. While I don't necessarily fall completely into the camp saying "just run them over" (which, if you feel threatened, is covered your right to self defense - but be prepared for leftitst to persecute and prosecute you anyway), I do strongly believe that the police have a right to use immediate force to incarcerate such terrorists with no discussion.

agreed. this was worse than making your point and getting the media coverage, worse than even knocking out all the windows on (innocent) Market Street mom and pop stores, because when it took hours, and the local mole people had rare sunshine (from Houston perspective), there could have been deaths.

again, I am sympathetic to the anti-(forever) war thought, though. the blue team media now charges the red team with 'isolationism', and has only the congress people on who are advocating essentially war on three different continents including Asia. ((r) next to his name Lawlor went on about China buying things from Iran means China is as bad as Iran. (so does that mean, everything we buy, what about when we buy oil from the beheading Arab nations?). the only peace dem, was forced out of the blue team, and on the day, he qualified for the Michigan ballot, EVERY blue state media channel wanted to talk to his family who prefers Biden. plus, did you know since 2023 (that's what the selective service registry new law says--you want to call it a Biden law, I'm fine with that...), 18 year males only, (geez, maybe going trans is an option...) are forced to register for the draft again, or else threat threat threat. that's what the thing in the mail to two of my teen male kids just said. you think the blue team media (with one of us in office) would question US entering into WWIII? you know, as leader of the free world, to protect our friends, to prevent all the baddies from ....whatever it was, we prevented Vietnam/Iraq/and Afghanistan from doing with our kids' deaths... ?

PC, Political Correctness, was the camel’s nose under the tent, creeping in, bit by bit beginning in earnest in the 70’s. It was a deliberate and calculated effort by the Left to get control of and manipulate the minds of Americans into the early stages of the entire Leftist agenda, carefully choreographed with a compliant media to daily reinforce its message, laying the groundwork for all that was to come, and where we find ourselves today. It subtly, covertly, day in and day out, reinforced what were all the “right things to think, to want, to believe in”. It was a Master Class in mind control.

The first step for each of us in taking back America is to free our minds from its grip, to no longer fear to speak our minds, but to speak the truth, no matter who it offends because the truth is the only thing that will set you free.

Do you believe a partial birth abortion, where the baby is full term and they crack their skull? Please explain why that is not murder since, if left to Nature, the baby would live.

Please don’t be indirect or evasive. I assume if you are pro-abortion you are pro-abortion up to and including the 9th month? (That’s a second question).

If the woman was raped or subjected to incest don't you think she would make the decision for an abortion sooner rather than later?

Trump had many private conversations with Putin during his admin. Putin LOVED Trump because he recognized Trump as his polar opposite – an ignorant, childish, self-aggrandizing, impulsive FOOL, always desperate for praise and affirmation and creating chaos with every act. He loved it when Trump bad-mouthed NATO, our allies and when Trump praised and agreed with Putin as at the famous Helsinki conference and echoed Russian talking points as in endorsing Russia’s 1979 invasion of Afghanistan (in his typical third grade style):

Trump:”Russia used to be the Soviet Union. Afghanistan made it Russia because they went bankrupt fighting in Afghanistan, Russia.... The reason Russia was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia, they were right to be there. The problem is it was a tough fight and literally they went bankrupt. They went into being called Russia again as opposed to the Soviet Union. You know a lot of these places you are reading about now are no longer a part of Russia because of Afghanistan."

Trump would have handed Ukraine over to Putin if he won a second term while echoing Putin's talking points about Ukraine being part of Russia. When Trump lost, Putin had to act because he is getting old and has limited time to achieve his ambitions of restoring the Soviet Union.

Hamas attacked Israel because Saudia Arabia was close to signing a treaty normalizing relations with Israel and they wanted to prevent it.

It is documented that Putin said he preferred Hillary Clinton as president because that was more status quo, and he would know what to expect. He did not want Trump because he’s unpredictable. Of course, you don’t know that, you get your news from mainstream media. You believe the Putin lies.

Said the same about Biden.

Like Trump, you believe anything our "friend" Putin says.

Expand full comment

You’re delusional. Putin is not our “friend,” but he’s not automatically an enemy if we play our cards right. Which Biden is incapable of doing since he has dementia. Trump doesn’t believe he’s a friend either, but he does understand how the power balance works. He’s just not a complete dumbass like Biden/Obama. Libs are all dumb-as-a-sack-of-rocks re foreign policy. Always have been, always will be. Why do you think we’re in this mess? Obama and Biden created this disaster we’re in right now. Notice that none of this happened under Trump. Northwest citizen.

So, you make wild accusations about what Trump "would" do, based on nothing but your fever dreams, while ignoring what Obama and Biden actually did (handing Crimea to Russia, meddle with Ukraine's elections, send billions to Iran ...). Is projection really all that you have?

Payment to Iran: The $400 million was Iran’s to start with, placed into a US-based trust fund to support American military equipment purchases in the 1970s. When the Shah was ousted by a 1979 popular uprising that led to the creation of the Islamic Republic, the US froze the trust fund. Iran has been fighting for a return of the funds through international courts since 1981.

In announcing the agreement, Obama said that paying the $400 million – plus $1.3 billion in interest – was saving American taxpayers billions of dollars. The Iranians had been seeking more than $10 billion at arbitration

The Obama administration was criticized for its refusal to provide lethal assistance to Ukraine, it did provide more than $100 million in security assistance, as well as a significant amount of defense and military equipment. Did you want Obama to send US troops to Crimea?

Cato Ins. says that US officials were involved in the overthrow of Ukraine pres Yanukovych while the Obama administration and most of the American news media portrayed the Euromaidan Revolution as a spontaneous, popular uprising against a corrupt and brutal government.

Obama & Biden paid Iran off for all the killings of US Soldiers, Marines & Airmen in Iraq. Pentagon reports that 1 in every 6 US military death in Iraq War was attributed to Iran:

Trump had four years to "hand Ukraine over to Putin" but didn't. In fact, Putin didn't expand the territory he had taken under Obama any further. I'd love any proof that Trump would have given any land to Putin.

Plausible thoughts. Q: why didn’t trump hand over Ukraine while he was in office? Confident of a second term?

Expand full comment

Yes. He & Putin both thought he would win. Handing over Ukraine in the first term might have caused him to lose.

How about sticking with things that actually did happen? Like forking over Crimea to Russia and giving Iran billions of dollars.

No new wars in his first term is a piece of evidence that is lacking for every other President since Jimmy Carter.

Expand full comment

No new wars were started on Trump's watch. ISIS was minimized (still a presence, but that is like trying to kill cockroaches - just make sure it's not an infestation), Russia, that had already invaded Ukraine gained no land, and we had peace deals between Israel and 4 Middle East nations (something the State Dept said would never happen). Seems like a pretty good track record.

So what does it take to avoid war? Draining US petroleum reserves to bring down gas prices before the 2022 election? Saying "Don't" each time an enemy seriously saber rattles? Reducing military spending? Making the military woke so warriors don't want to join? Demanding a hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan to coincide with the 20th anniversary of 9-11 for a photo op? Never requiring a goal when supporting wars, but instead, showering our "allies" with cash too late to be of strategic or tactical benefit, and ensuring these wars never end? Enabling foes like Iran who have spent most of their recent earnings to destabilize the middle east? Leaking our intentions regarding military actions so the enemy can be ready and there isn't too much damage? The best way to avoid war is to be stronger than the bad guys. Trump has it right and Biden is a basket case. Can you just imagine Biden in a situation room with his note cards?

Dear Sasha, I’m so glad you’re “awake”and not”WOKE” anymore!….I’m truly ecstatic with your awareness….we don’t always see eye to eye….but, ”words will never hurt me!”….just analysing and constantly dissecting…everyone is entitled to an opinion!….keep up your excellent work…you help us have hope!

Sasha is attracting more attention in the wider media ecosystem which is a good thing but it also means she is attracting trolls. Please just ignore them. If they are not being paid, they are doing it to fillabuster our threads. Note that not everyone you disagree with is a troll but there are tells like abuse of other commenters or repetitive posts.

I particularly liked the Chick-fil-A visit, which was vintage Trump. Biden can never ignite that kind of excitement. We are in desperate need of a hero right now, someone who genuinely loves this country, and it most definitely is not Joe abiden.

The tiktok woman sums it up nicely. Trump is for us, he loves America. It’s real & It shows. Why else would he put himself through all the disgusting, lying garbage that the left throws at him? Years of it, when he could be off somewhere enjoying his twilight years. Bottom line is he’s fearless & won’t bow down to the elites, he loves America, he wants to bring sanity back to our institutions & continue to drain the swamp - or at least begin the process. Michigan showed us that as an immigrant you can freely yell death to America - but wear a red MAGA hat & wear a cross around you neck - you’re declared an enemy of the state - #1 on the most wanted list.

"Why else would he put himself through all the disgusting, lying garbage that the left throws at him?" Are you kidding? His EGO -he's the most powerful person in the world and has a cult that worships him, believes he can do no wrong, and the more he is exposed, the more they love him! Remember when Trump reposted this on X? "And on June 14th, 1946, God looked down on his planned paradise and said 'I need a caretaker', so God gave us Trump. God said, I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, fix this country, work all day, fight the Marxists, eat supper, then go to the Oval Office, and stay past midnight at a meeting of the state, so God made Trump..."

It should have said: " I need someone who get up before dawn, golf all day, whine about all his grievances, then stay up past midnight posting lies and childish insults on Twitter/Truth Social...."

How barren must your life be to dedicate your life, your activities, your very breath to taking down Donald Trump? What has he ever done to them? They (including my wife, sadly) never have an answer, it's just "because Trump". How sad.
