My country tis of me


Sweet land of hackery


Hack into emails, I don't care


Does it get me my candidate?


In politics, all's fair


My country tis of me


That's how I roll


Get dirt from an enemy?


Goodness, how droll


I would never do that


Not in 5,000 years


Why just look at my record


Least that which appears


I'm the model of decency, virtue and strength


Just look at my fingers!


Look at the length!


Oh my dear fellows


You bore me with fact


The only thing matters


One knows how to act


Never admit things


Deny and deny


They cannot dispute you


The truth is a lie


Its fake news and politics


That's all that it is


The sooner you learn this


You'll get far in my biz


Now let us not tarry


Dear dotardy chaps


We have countries to rob!


Jeeves....get me my maps

Michael Sand is a former Green Beret, and comes from a family of military servicemembers. As he wrote on Facebook, his father was a World War II veteran fighting fascism, he served in Vietnam fighting communism, and his son is currently serving in the Army fighting the Taliban and terrorism.

"Three vastly different enemies, but enemies who shared one common trait," Sand writes. "ALL of them stifle free speech. All of them bully, degrade and terrorize those who hold opposing views and who peacefully express them."

And then the ultimate act of terror: A car accelerated down a narrow street in the city’s quaint district near the Downtown Mall, a street lined with peaceful protesters, and slammed into the crowd, leaving one dead and nearly 20 injured.

The hatred, the bigotry – the bloodshed. How could this be happening at the home of my beloved alma mater and in a progressive city that boasts a warm and inclusive environment?

The Big Switcheroo

The Democratic Party started in 1828 as anti-Federal faction and grew to become one of the leading political forces of the United States.


The GOP started in 1854 – few years later than its Democratic counterpart – to stop slavery, which was viewed as unconstitutional.

The world is a glorious mismatch of all kinds of things.....let us not mistake one for the other.


There is such a thing as black. There is such a thing as white. You can mix them up and get gray.....


But the black and white still remain.

      Please tell me:

      What was Hillary’s crime in Benghazi?

      Didnt Bush use a private server connected to the rnc, and didn’t Rove

      “Lose” 22 million emails?

      Was that before, or after Hillary?

      Didn’t 6 members of the Trump top level in the White House use private servers AFTER that whole smear campaign against Hillary? Is it only a problem when a democrat does it?

      IRS was not targeting rightwing groups. Those groups were pretending to be public service non profits as they stumped for rightwing candidates! Avoiding taxes scam. Like churches do.

      And Bill Clinton was publicly humiliated, shunned, and reamed for his behavior.

      Bill Clinton publicly apologized to the Americans people, testified under oath, and was impeached.

      How that is “nothing” is a mystery to me.

      “Nothing“ is what’s happening to Trump.

      I thought he was going to sue ALL the women who accused him? He’s fighting giving up his DNA....Clinton had to......is Trump somehow more privileged?

      Just yesterday, another complaint, and you cheer him on.

      Pffffft out of here.

      Trump didnt want to spread panic? Unless of course, you’re voting for Biden. Then, “you will be surrounded by swarms of left wing mobs who will kill you. Poor people (and you know who I mean, wink wink) will move into your neighborhood and destroy it. Mayhem, destruction, the end of the American dream”......

      Give me a beak. He didn’t want to panic Wall Street, because that’s the only thing he cares about. Hence, the feds pouring trillions into it. He loves to spread panic when speaking of fellow Americans who are the wrong color, party, and/or religion, and not part of the 1% he serves.

      Please stop gaslighting for your prez. Gawd, that koolaide must taste sweet.

      And stop bickering. You’ll cause another left winger to get banned. Never youze, tho. Bicker free zone. Cancel culture at its finest.

      It’s humorous nobody minds the decades long Republican senators who all support Trump.

      They’re just getting all their judges, all their tax cuts, and their anti abortion policies.

      How is that anything but business as usual? I mean, give me a break.

      Corruption? Have you met Mitch McConnell? Nope, you only seem to talk about democrats......

      *****

      You mean like McConnell? He enables Trump. Even Schweitzer wrote a book about him, You mean like all the corrupt republicans and religious leaders trump has in his pocket? You mean like the lawless AG? Trump is not breaking through corruption, he is cementing it into our gvt.

      And i wonder why his supporters can’t see it? That is the question in my mind.

      They will never care to examine this either. Donald Trump is part of an international crime syndicate. Corruption is his middle name.

      Fox fake news:

      “One photo Fox published online shows an armed man in front of a smashed store window. Another shows the same man, as if this couldn't get any dumber, in front of a sign saying, "You are now entering Free Cap Hill." Both are doctored — the man was photoshopped into both photos; he was at neither place in the photos.

      The network has taken down and apologized for digitally manipulated, misleading photos that appeared on its website last week in stories about Seattle’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ, the six-block areawhere people protesting the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis have established a police-free zone, mostly peacefully.

      There’s more. In a story about CHAZ, the website used a photo of a neighborhood on fire with the headline “CRAZY TOWN,” a chaotic-looking scene. The photo, along with the headline, certainly gives the impression that CHAZ is a lawless hotbed of violence and destruction.

      Except the neighborhood in the photo isn’t CHAZ. It isn’t even in Seattle. It’s an image from St. Paul, Minn.,taken in May.“

      *****

      93% of protests are peaceful. All Fox shows is “violent riots”

      They did the same with Palin. Hannity showed a supposedly huge crowd for Palin.....it was for Obama.

      They showed Trump huge inaugural crowd.....doctored photo, and trump gets to spew bs on there all the time.

      Please......Hannity and Carlson defend the Kenosha killer......I’d like to know what other network does that.

      Not to mention, Fox was the home of Birtherism.....

      No other network comes close to the subversive nature of Fox. Imo

      Question:

      How come everyone has to be kind and conciliatory towards trump supporters, but no one feels the need to do the same for Biden supporters?

      Actually, as far as I can tell, there are no members supporting Biden here .,,only against trump.

      Well, I am FOR Biden. I like what he says. I think he is ready, willing and able to handle the office of president.

      I don’t think the office is a joke. I think it has become one, but it is no joke.

      If Hillary was there, we’d be doing something about citizens united, but the minority who likes Big money in politics is catered to by the electoral college.

      Swing states, shwing states. If you can’t decide who’s better, trump or Biden.....I mean. C’mon

      They ban who they don’t like, or who the clique doesn’t like. And who they don’t like can be insulted all day long with no repercussions.

      And this game they play with “comment will be shown once approved by author” is targeted at certain individuals, too.

      For crying out loud, if you want to know Biden’s agenda, look it up.

      According to a lot of articles, it’s “surprisingly progressive”......which should garner the same praise from you Trumpers as Sanders did, right?

      Lolol. Right. So far I’ve seen zero integrity over there. Only politics. Tribalism.

      You are just not getting the point about the forums! It’s not about having rules, it’s about banning those who don’t break them while keeping those who do.

      Based on your political leanings.

      “We have ways of getting rid of people like you”, and I have experienced it.

      You have a person on there now who called someone stupid, with zero Repercussions.....Who is now kooing about how nice the forums are. Really?

      Didn’t someone the other day call Biden “sniff and grip”? You think that’s nice?

      Oh I get it......you’ve removed the people who would say that about Trump. Isn’t that it?

      Biden is still fair game. And so is Kamala. Joe and the Hoe. Nice and civil, like you like it.

      It’s about discrimination. And it is rampant here.

      I know a lot of people think they’re really smart.....so maybe they should ask themselves......

      If rioters and looters are hurting BLM.....maybe they don’t come from BLM.

      Why would BLM hurt their own cause?

      I saw a video clip of 2 foreign looking white girls, spray painting buildings, and BLM protesters telling them to stop.

      I work with a lot of girls from Eastern Europe and such......it’s not an easy life there......a lot of them do what they have to do to survive.

      Sabotaging a movement is not hard to do.....they did it to the anti war movement and the black panthers.

      Just like Kanye is being used to hurt Biden......after being bailed out of huge debt.....Russian connects......you did read how Kris K was accused of fudging numbers On her taxes, right?

      It can’t be explained that so many, like Lindsey Graham, absolutely had contempt for Trump, then turn into his biggest butt kisser.

      It makes no common sense.

      BLM is not about rioting and looting. THAT is someone else altogether. Have a little common sense.

      It’s hard to argue a point with someone whose whole concept of the situation is far different than yours.

      Sometimes I read someone’s opinion, and just know.....there is no way to find any common ground here......we are not even in the same reality.

      A few situations where realities don’t mesh:

      9/11

      Israel/Palestine

      Boston Bombing

      There is just no point in even talking unless you can find people who are open to different perspectives.

      As David Icke said long ago, “we won’t need the police....we will be happy to police each other”

      And this is true.

      Try stating an opinion that goes against the norm....it will be met with anger, condemnation, and shunning.

      “Tin foil hat”, “stupid”, “did you miss taking your meds?”

      Not many people have an open mind. We’ve all had our minds filled since birth.

      But, when your body tells you, you just “know”. And there is no moving from that stance. Explore opinions, look at facts, but nothing can move you from that “knowing”.

      It’s a quality of being human.....remember, in the past, we could read minds.....

      We all have intuition. I trust mine.

      What are you talking about? It’s not about victimhood, it’s about getting paid what you’re owed.

      My mom just died. We get the inheritance my father left her.

      In the case of Africans, their ancestors didn’t get paid for their work. The slave owners descendants got the slave descendants earned inheritance!

      If the Snow family got wealthy in the cotton market, while paying zero for labor.....the family of the laborers are owed money.

      The ones playing the victim here are the slave owner descendants.

      Generational wealth, made bigger by the piece they stole from the slaves.

      It’s not hard to find out who owned what slaves......they kept meticulous records back then.

      If I find out my great great grandfather worked for free for the Snow family, I want my share of that wealth!

      And the same goes for Chinese, Irish, Slav.....Anyone who built someone else’s wealth while working for free......Your descendants are OWED!

      According to The New York Times, the story was seeded by a Russian news agency called Ruptly, and the highly edited footage shows only a few people burning one or two Bibles.

      The Times described this as one of Russia's first successful big disinformation hits ahead of the presidential election.

      In his tweet sharing the story, Trump Jr. implied that "book burning" was common among activists. Cruz wrote, "This is who they are."

      Let’s be honest about the media. They helped elect Trump.

      “According to mediaQuant, Inc., from July 2015 through October 2016 Trump received free media worth more than $5.9 billion. Clinton received less than half that figure, a little under $2.8 billion.“

      Also, both Trump and Sanders painted her as corrupt, when

      “Politifact, a Pulitzer prize-winning fact-checking organization, gives Clinton the best truth-telling record of any of the 2016 presidential candidates. She beats Sanders and Kasich and crushes Cruz and Trump, who has the biggest “pants on fire” rating and has told whoppers about basic economics that are embarrassing for anyone aiming to be president.”

      “These results raise the obvious question. If Clinton’s trustworthiness is roughly equivalent to that of Sanders and Kasich—and, as we shall see, Barack Obama–why do polls show so many voters distrusting her? In the latest Marquette Poll, only one-third of respondents (32 percent) describe her as honest, about the same as Trump (33 percent).

      Part of the explanation, I think, is she has been under national scrutiny, and attack, for a long time, at least since 1992 when her husband was elected president. As early as 1993 as respectable a publication as the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal was suggesting that she had a role in the murder of Vince Foster or was connected in some way to drug smuggling at a small Arkansas airport. Trump has recently revived the first charge; we can probably expect the second to rear its head.”

      Know who else pushed it? Hate talk radio......namely rush Limbaugh, Michael weiner, howie Carr, etc etc etc

      It’s been a 30 year psy-op, culminating in pizza-gate.

      Know how I know an operative? They always mention Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein, never a word about Trump. That tells me they are part of the conspiracy.

      Frank Schaeffer:

      “Insider says Kushner is now in charge of planning last ditch try at disqualifying Biden ballots on election night, urging Republican state legislatures to "send competing slates of electors," and then seeking a Supreme Court ruling in Trump's favor. Barr is said to support this.“

      ******

      Kushner is one sinister person. He’s the one who arranged Bills accusers to show up at that debate.

      Decided that Democratic lives aren’t worth saving, because they’re “not our voters”.

      Friend of bone saw.

      Funder of illegal settlements.

      He’s a real slime ball, imo.

      It makes me ill to see that type of immorality in charge of America. He and Steven Miller.

      Trumps latest gift to Vladimir.....

      Removing our troops from Germany. Troops are coming home......to what?

      Occupy America? If you can’t protest, it’s not America. Period.

      If “yes, daddy” is your response to a president, we are in serious trouble.

      And he’s letting Europe know who his daddy is.....Something we’ve been trying to tell you for the longest.

      “Russia, if you’re listening”....... have America......on a silver platter.

      “Reporting yesterday in Vanity Fair that Jared’s solution for keeping his father-in-law in power was to let COVID-19 ravage blue states.

      His logic is twisted & ignorant, as are both men.

      Jared also seized tests & PPE, via FEMA, 2 advance his solution.

      It’s mass murder.

      Charge him.“

      *******

      Yes. More than once, they stole from Massachusetts, not caring about our lives.

      I get that they hate democrats, but someone better pay for this.

      Trump tweeted this 8 hrs ago:

      “We beat Obama 4 years ago, he worked harder than Crooked Hillary,“

      To say you people are civil, is a joke.

      Crooked Hillary is funny to you, it’s a slur that never gets called out.

      “The Democrats hate America and the Constitution“ is hate speech, and allowed on every platform you people own....which is everything.

      It’s about time everyone stopped babying you, because you’re white, Christian and used to having your way.

      When your empire finally crumbles, it will be because you turned your back on decency, honor and integrity.

      You can blame the world, but it’s you. Keep showing us what you’re REALLY about.

      This isn’t about protestors. He’s preparing for a seige.“

      “I wondered if Valiant and JOC were banned from the forums as were lots of posters from the Left. Myself, Pretty Panther and others were banned permanently.“

      *******

      This is ridiculous. And wrong. Who signed up to agree to the rightwing POV? I didn’t see that anywhere when I joined.

      Sandmann just won a lot of cash......a judge ruled you can’t discriminate against him because he likes Trump.

      Well, they discriminate here if you don't. Always have. And to say rightwingers are civil is a joke,

      Anywhere else, this would be hate speech:

      https://hubpages.com/politics/forum/348963/the-dem...

      A whole thread on Biden the rapist. That’s libel. A thread, why do liberals hate America.......allowed.

      Hillary Killary, yeah, that’s civil.

      Something really foul goes on here.....and I have receipts of the maligning I’ve been subject to, for my POV.

      A clique of rightwing women run this place, that’s what I think. The squeaky wheel, and all. They let it be known who they don’t like. Report, complain, email others, report, complain.....until they’re gone. And, since they are immune to the rules, some must work here.

      They should not be allowed to get away with it.

      Our first amend doesn’t mean free speech for trump supporters, everyone else gets banned!

      “So Devin Nunes was receiving packages with Biden “dirt” - likely forged - from Ukrainians connected to the KGB. He did not report to the federal authorities. It only was revealed when a package was mistakenly sent to democrats. He really is a traitor.”

      *******

      From buying a winery with Russian oligarch cash.....to drunk and drugs and underage girls parties on his yacht......

      Mooooooooo. You in trouble, boy.
