    your quoted tweet says "on Islam in Saudi Arabia." Obama speaking English doesn't change the fact he did what you want people to imagine him doing it.

    What language Obama gave the speech in has literally zero to do with anything.
    It actually kind of does but you are right I misread the report I thought he was going to give the speech in Arabic my fault (or part of it).

    ALL of you people. Not just V need to watch and listen to this. Liberal Democrats and liberal media in our own State of Indiana have even confirmed massive voter registration fraud by ACORN.

    But go ahead and deny it. This is just one example in Indiana. It's hard telling how bad it is in a more liberal state. I would not at all be surprised if Trump actually won the popular vote. Not saying I am a Trump fan either...


    There have been about 30 proven cases of proven voter fraud since 2000. So it is almost negligible. There were a couple documented cases of voter fraud in 2016- almost all by Republican Trump supporters. Voter ID laws are racially discriminatory and many have been thrown out by the courts. After the GOP took control of the North Carolina state government in 2013, the state legislature requested information on the voting habits of black people and specifically wrote and passed laws to disenfranchise them. Thankfully, those laws were overturned by the courts.

    The GOP only wins elections by cheating- be it by reducing polling locations, reducing early voting, eliminating same day registration, etc.

    Oh yeah, and voter registration fraud is not the same thing as voter fraud. ACORN was brought down by notorious right wing dirty trickster James O'Keefe, a convicted criminal who was arrested for trying to tap a Democratic senator's telephone. He had to pay a $100k settlement for his activities with respect to ACORN.

    It depends on what he says. Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists. He supported the terrorists fighting Syria's dictator...which ultimately led to terrorists flowing into Europe. He opposed Israel. He hates Bibi. He gave 100 billion to Iran under the table. I'm not saying Obama is a terrorist or even a sympathizer. But try being objective. He was not a friend of those who most oppose Islamofacism.
    Man, quit spewing conspiracy theories. Obama in no way supports the Muslim Brotherhood. He approved a $38 billion aid package to Israel. Disagreeing with a right wing Likud politician is not the same as opposing Israel. Give me a break. Trump gave highly classified Israeli intel to Russia and jeopardized the life of a key Israeli ISIS intel source.

    He didn't give $100 billion to Iran- he allowed them to access their own money in exchange for giving up their nuclear weapons porgram. When Trump built a hotel in Azerbaijan, he partnered with a corrupt oligarch family with ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Republicans can never accuse Dems of being soft on terror EVER AGAIN when the head of their party does business with terrorist sponsoring states.

    Finally, Obama spent eight years droning the **** out of the Middle East. Don't spread vicious lies about his sympathies or loyalties.

    The electoral college exists so that states like new york & california do not call the shots for everyone else. I am more than ok with that.
    Why shouldn't they? Those states account for 1/5 of the US population. A popular vote means all votes count the same. Someone in Bozeman should not have more influence on who the next President is than someone in New York City. The Electoral College is a relic that was created to appease slaveholding states.

    Donald Trump himself wanted to abolish the Electoral college in 2012!

    Impeach him. I hope that happens. I am no Trump fan. But I'm still glad he beat Hillary and we never see her and Bill in the White House. I can't wait to see Pence take charge...
    Pence was a disaster for Indiana. He is responsible for one of the worst HIV outbreaks in recent history, dragging his feet on creating a desperately needed needle exchange program. He tried to create a state propaganda news agency. He cost the state tens of millions in economic activity by signing the discriminatory "religious freedom" bill into law. He also signed a law that required women to hold a funeral for and bury their aborted fetuses. He approved the disastrous public-private partnership to upgrade Interstate 69 that is two years behind schedule and led to needless traffic deaths. He refused to declare a state of emergency in East Chicago after it was discovered there was lead in the water supply.

    Oh yeah, he calls his wife "Mother" and refuses to meet with another woman unless his wife is present. Creepy, radical Christian ****.

    I totally disagree with this, but if it ever becomes a reality get ready for politicians to spend all their time in 2-3 states and to ignore the rest of the country....

    That's beautiful. Most troubling is that the media is now completely controlled by liberals. It is poisoning the good young minds out there.

    It's a shame that we've had this great experiment called America, with freedom and independence being its foundation...the strongest nation in the world militarily and economically...and people are dumb enough to want to emulate the socialism of Europe. They want the heavy hand of government programs controlling our lives and they want people dependent on government...rather than independent from it. SMH.

    I think most anyone will acknowledge a media bias, but I am not ready to say that the media is now controlled by the left. If that was the case Fox News and talk radio never got the memo.

    Fox News is done. Talk radio isn't as strong. The conservative voices have had the worst 6 months in my memory.

    I guess you want to do away with the Senate too, right? Obviously its not fair that Wyoming has the same impact on the Senate as New York.

    Of course we might as well just go all the way at that point and do away with states all together.

    The President is President of the states, not President of the people directly. It's never going to change, so maybe next time don't nominate a horrendous candidate like Hillary whose hyper-leftist agenda and sleazy background make her unelectable to large swaths of the country.

    Last night, Wolf Blizter again asked Diane Frankenfeinstein if there was evidence of collusion. She again said there is no evidence yet that would establish collusion, but there are rumors and newspaper stories

    So far it looks like the only collusion that took place was the DNC and media rigging the Democratic primary against Sanders so that Hillary could inevitably fail (the story of her career...always comes up short, can't seal the deal).

    Rumors? the evidence is right in front of our eyes, Flynn, Manifold, Page, his son in law, Sessions, I know Trump followers act like is some made up **** by the "left satanic media" but is not, the evidence is right there.


    Either way I expect the orange agent to go down for something else, like money laundering, tax evasion or something like that, I also expect "conservatives" to tell us how god chose Mike Pence because as we know he works in mysterious ways and this was his way to bring us a "true believer" in charge so this country goes back to it's foundation and blah blah blah

    I'm just relaying what Democrat Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Frankenfeinstein, said. She said no evidence yet.

    Vnzla has more evidence than Diane Feinstein, who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. The exact committee that is leading the Russian investigation.


    Look, I ****ing loathe Trump but take a breather. The highest ranking Democrat that is on the committee that is investigating possible collusion between Trump and Russia says there isn't any evidence. Unless you think she's now covering up for Trump, it doesn't make any sense.


    And not only do I loathe Trump, one of the biggest issues is his lap dog behavior towards Putin.

    But a guy can be an idiot towards Russia and not be breaking any laws.

    But she did say something - she said they had no evidence yet. That's not a "no comment".....it's a declarative statement. So are you saying they're allowed to lie?

    She is not going to say "this is the evidence we got" she is not allowed to do that if the information they got is classified, she is pretty much repeating what everybody else on that committee is saying or are allowed to say that's it.

    Feinstein and Joe Manchin have both been in DC long enough to know how the game is played and both aren't going to give definitive statements like "no evidence" to give Trump cover when there actually is.

    Neither have any reason whatsoever to jump on that sword.

    DC has more leaks than a collander. You'd hear specifics if there was any.

    Comey's supposed memo would be a fart in the wind compared to a concrete piece of evidence.

    But seriously, that's the story of politics: Hypocritical at every turn. If the script were flipped, GOP supporters would be saying the same stuff.

    Fwiw, I really liked the appointment of Robert Mueller as special investigator to this Russia stuff. It needed to happen, and we needed someone as unbiased as possible to do the investigating.
