A Night in Dallas

A Night in Dallas
“At stake in this fight is the survival of American democracy itself. Don’t kid yourselves,” Trump said, claiming about the Democrats, “I really don’t believe anymore that they love our country.”

We the People


After a night of endless boredom in Westerville, Ohio from twelve lackluster democratic candidates, the President arrived in Dallas, Texas to speak before another packed stadium. The President, despite a long day of executive duties (including a tour of a new Louis Vuitton leather workshop in north central Texas and a fundraiser in Fort Worth) was full of energy and there was the usual chemistry with the lively crowd.


Response to democrats

The President first spoke of the democrats plot to impeach him & deliver a fatal political wound to his re-election bid: “These people are crazy. They have absolutely no respect for the will of the American people. First it was the Russia hoax. Then it was the smearing of a fine man, Justice Kavanaugh. Now they continue the outrageous impeachment witch hunt. They come after me, but what they are really doing is coming after the Republican Party.”  

He issued another Trumpism when he said that democrats have been trying for three years to undo what Trump called "The greatest election in history."

He reminded people to vote


Reasoning on Syria

He explained his decision to remove troops from Syria, as he already had before by stating that he wanted to free up the military from the burden of endless wars. He revealed a bit of the long history between the Turks and the Kurds (both US allies) and how difficult it was to keep them from waging war on each other. He lamented “sometimes you have to let them fight like two kids. Then you pull them apart.”


The Economy

We all heard the usual description of the solid state of the economy. Normally an incumbent president wouldn't have to constantly remind people, but this President has been dogged by an adversarial media which never concedes to the current level of prosperity, which has benefited all groups. The media will only focus on their "imminent recession narrative." We also heard of the effort to lower drug prices and correct long standing trade imbalances.


The Border

Always a special topic is the key campaign promise of 2016 - the securing of the southern border and preserving American sovereignty. We were reminded of the fierce resistance the President faced via liberal judges, activist groups, the media, progressive governors and House democrats when it came to securing the southern border. It was good to hear him talk of the wall again and how, despite all the obstruction, he managed to take money from "here and there" to get some wall built. There is a man determined to keep his promises. 


Dignitaries


As is now the custom, Trump introduced important state dignitaries. In attendance were some of Texas most influential elected officials, including Senators Cruz and Cornyn, state representatives, the Lt Governor, former Gov Rick Perry and GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. Trump had some fun with Sen Ted Cruz by fondly reminiscing about their primary battles during the 2016 campaign. He praised Cruz's debating skills and noted how weak the current democratic field is - advising Cruz to run as a democrat and score an easy win. Ted just waved his arms (no way!).

I don't blame you Ted. It's one thing I'll never be - a democrat.

Good report from la la land Vic. 

The majority of Americans want to see this pos removed from office, and after yesterday that figure will undoubtedly rise, but you present the minority report with dutiful sincerity. 

You should apply for a position at Fox News, or one of Trump's other propaganda outlets.  Hell, once he notices you he might make you ambassador to Ukraine.

I actually am tiring of this too. Donald Trump internalizes nothing of the criticism send his way (air-head) and "donalders"  are all-in on the lies and alternative reality Donald is creating out of whole cloth. It is too demanding and very draining. I'm starting to pull-back from this craziness that is pervasive on the site.

Time for a "refresh." I will engage such articles at strategic points of my own consideration—only. Why should I suffer ruin or depression because some others want to believe a lie?

So begins the long bye-bye.

You better hope they are more spread out than last time

Yesterday? You mean when Mulvaney said the President wanted to fight corruption in the Ukraine?  Isn't that what Schiff leaked in an amended form?


Hell, once he notices you he might make you ambassador to Ukraine. 

I only want John Durham's job. Just make me a US Attorney in charge of investigating & PROSECUTING all the deep state officials!

The 'deep state' is your psychological mechanism for defending and perpetrating Trumps personal, moral, ethical and intellectual failures.   Where is the Mccabe indictment Vic, that you told everyone was days , if not hours away? When was that? a month ago? six weeks?    McCabe and Comey are really shaking in their boots. They both regularly come on tv and appear to not have a legal care in the world. 

Unfortunately for Durham, who may for all we know be a good man, anything he comes up with now, if he ever does, which is doubtful, will be tainted by the stench of his appointment by Barr, who is tainted by the stench of his slavish devotion to Trumpism.

LOL. Trump wants to fight corruption in Ukraine? He doesnt even want to fight corruption within his own administration, or within his own company and family. Or within himself. He might be the last person on the face of the earth who anyone in their right mind would associate with fighting corruption. 

What corruption in Ukraine did Trump threaten to withhold aid over, other than his nutty ass conspiracy theory about the DNC server, and over his 2020 election rival Joe Biden?  What other corruption Vic? 

Trump doesnt care about corruption in Ukraine, he's a walking corruption factory himself. Thats like saying Al Capone wanted to rid the Chicago streets of gangland shootings. lol.

I have been saying on this forum for 4 or 5 years that a day of reckoning would come for all those who stand with trump. He is not fit for office , that is 1000% obvious, and that makes those who continue to stand with him dishonest with themselves or the same type of moral and ethical disaster he is. 

I have taken a LOT of grief on this forum for criticizing trump supporters from the beginning. A lot. It has essentially ruined my friendship with someone here. I get called names here just about every day. I get over moderated. But I dont regret it and now more and more people, not only on Newstalkers, but everywhere, are coming to that conclusion. 

This morning Joe Scarborough said that the people at Trump's rally last night need to educate themselves about reality and stop looking stupid.

Eventually JR, you might actually learn that regardless of your personal vitriolic hatred of Donald Trump and any and all that support what he has accomplished for this country, you will be sorely disappointed and we will be ecstatic for the next five years knowing President Trump will continue to rebuild America regardless of the hate you and others spew for him and us daily.

You have been a stalworth of education and justice here. I think we've all lost former friends and family over this insanity. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. Their idea we are in some sort of deep state says everything we need to know about them.  Alex Jones conspiracy theorists have eaten this hook, line and sinker. They can't  even be honest with themselves.  

Many here, me included-- very much appreciate your fight for truth and justice. Thank you for your dedication. Keep up the good work! Don't ever let them bring you down. You know right from wrong as most have good moral compasses and great built -in bullshit detectors otherwise he'd have much more support than 1/3. When it looks like a duck, it is a duck. Our scouts will right this train wreck. Meanwhile, it is our duty to help combat their lies and distortions. 

As to moderating fairness, it is sometimes head scratching, to say the least.  I'm appalled at what some get away with.  Especially those threatening violence and calling for civil war.  I've thought about just going away permanently as their lack of critical thinking gets so very old but I guess I'm just not fed up enough yet as I find myself here more than I have time for.

Very true JR.

The rest of the world is laughing at the United States and wondering how we allow such insanity in our government.  The continual investigations which have and continue to prove absolutely baseless and only some people in positions of power literally making up stories which they read into official transcripts of Congressional Hearings and the followers of people like that lapping those lies and stories up as if they were actually factual.

What the rest of the world can't understand is how we as a people allow the President of the United States be denigrated in such fashion when he is in fact accomplishing what he promised to do during his campaign.  He got taxes lowered.  He has accomplished what others have said is impossible in rebuilding our manufacturing base.  Hell, Louis Vuitton has opened a new factory right here in Texas.   He is bringing American warriors home which Presidents before him have all promised to do, but instead got us and them involved in new conflicts.  

But, none of that is important to the vitriolic haters of President Trump.   The man could cure cancer and he would likely be accused of creating it so he could make money on finding a cure.

At least half the population is not impressed by his "accomplishments". His accomplishments relate to a right wing or conservative viewpoint. 

For someone to say "Trump is cool because he is doing what I want to see happen" is a minority viewpoint. 

But even that is not the point. He's unfit for office. He is a serial liar, a crook, a bigot, and a moron. The president of the United States has to be more than that, better than that.

There are other Republicans that can lower taxes, believe me.  

This "only Trump can do bla bla bla" argument is horse shit.

In short.  Immaterial.  He was elected and they can howl at the sky until they turn blue.  That fact won't change.

For someone to say "Trump is cool because he is doing what I want to see happen" is a minority viewpoint. 

A minority is happy about a strong robust economy?  How about the lowest unemployment in history?   Maybe they're upset with rising wages?  Are the blacks and Hispanics disappointed with the highest employment rates they have ever seen?  And other than some war mongers, who is unhappy to see our troops coming out of harms way in war zones?  Allow others to fight their own battles for a change.

But even that is not the point. He's unfit for office. He is a serial liar, a crook, a bigot, and a moron. The president of the United States has to be more than that, better than that.

The Presdient is more than that, much more than that.  You simply refuse to acknowledge the facts before you.  Maybe if Trump promised to "focus like a laser" on something until the next shiny object caught his eye you would be placated.

There are other Republicans that can lower taxes, believe me.  

Oh I do.  But Trump got it done.

This "only Trump can do bla bla bla" argument is horse shit. 

I don't know anyone who is saying that.  Others can do it also, but to date all before have refused to.   They are after all politicians who like all politicians before them have catered to the immediate crowd before them changing their line as the winds blow.  Trump has said what he was going to do, and unlike politicians before him....  did it.
