Closing Thought–08Aug18

You know sometimes the best thing to do is say nothing or in Our Dear Leader’s case….do not Tweet.

But he has done a smart thing……he will not take questions from the press as he stumbles out to Marine One…..

Recently Dear Leader made a Tweet as he always does but this time it was not some mindless rant…it was admitting to collusion (BTW it is not a crime to collude but obstruction is)…..

The White House announced on Monday that President Donald Trump would not take any questions after he admitted on Twitter that his son may have colluded with Russians during the 2016 campaign.

In a tweet over the weekend, Trump reversed course on his explanation of a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower. The president had originally claimed that the meeting had been about adoptions. But in his Sunday tweet, Trump admitted that the purpose of the meeting had been to get damaging information about Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee.

Ya know…..an old saying comes to mind….”It is better to be thought of as a moron than opening mouth and proving it” (That may be a paraphrase)

You know wearing your feelings on your sleeve will bite you in the ass every time.

I realize that most politicians hate the media….for not one of them wants to be held accountable for their actions or words….and in a recent study some within the GOP would close down the media…..

According to a new poll, a plurality of Republican voters want President Donald Trump to be able to shut down media outlets if he decides they have engaged in “bad behavior.”

The Ipsos poll, first reported by The Daily Beast, found that 43 percent of Republicans believe “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” Thirty-six percent of Republicans surveyed said that the president should not have the power to silence the press.

Illustrates that the GOP embraces our rights as long as they can control what we get as rights…..I have been calling the GOP liars for decades and now we are seeing just how bad they really are…..

A closing joke……

To confuse a MAGA supporter…..put 3 shovels in a corner and tell them to take their pick.  (rim shot)

  1. Oh I dunno, I kind of like it when Evil tattles on itself. As for collusion; oh I don’t know, definitions vary but most state “secret or illegal” working together for the purpose or intention of “deception”, “illegal activity”, or “fraud”.

    When you throw in representatives of a foreign hostile state, and the intention to usurp a Federal government position of leadership….didn’t we hang Benedict Arnold for that? He was certainly believed to be colluding with the British…

    1. The real “Evil” is found in a supposedly Christian nation that refuses to pray for their leaders as the Scriptures command. And the president has committed no hanging offense even though the bitter, the angry and the haters would like to think so.

      1. Supposedly Christian? Don’t get all judgy of non-Christians, nobody lied to you except your own judgy-preachy cult leaders. Not everyone is Christian so not everyone is obligated to follow any false scriptures. Nowhere in the bible does it command people pray for the President of the United States. As for your President….he’s a raving lunatic. You may want to get to praying before he sells you off to the Russians. 😉

      2. First of all I think you need to read a little bit of Bible so let us begin with this …. “(1 Peter 2:13-20)

        1Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
        Then we need to read and pay attention to this — (1 Timothy 2:1-2:2) — “1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men;

        2 For kings, and [for] all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

        ALL THAT ARE IN AUTHORITY! This definitely includes The President of The United States.

      3. <——– happily damned if it means I don't have to be stuck with the likes of YOU for all eternity. People like you, who try to shove YOUR views down other people's throats are the #1 reason I am no longer Christian. You are vile, anti-freedom, evil, malicious monsters and you have done convinced me that if there is a devil in the universe, it must be your God. And that's no god I want any part of.

      1. I think some of that was from his act of treason…many Americans thought he should be hanged except for his leg which was wounded fighting the Brits and that should be buried with honors…..LOL chuq

      2. That makes sense. I almost wonder if maybe I am mis-remembering the history book information and maybe they hung an effigy of him now that I think about it. It’s been a few decades so it is entirely possible.

        Yeah much of it was from his act of treason, but he had issues with people before that, much of which was attributed as possible causes for his act of treason. Seems he didn’t think he was getting his fair due from the Continental Army or the Continental Congress. Marrying a Tory sympathizer didn’t help either.

  2. From before he was even elected, the MSM has shown nothing but hostility toward him so I am not surprised that he shuts them out. I think he should shut them out and I wouldn’t be disappointed if The American People shut them all down completely — and I think that is what is happening as the alternative media of the Internet grows stronger and stronger.

    1. Limiting any press is a violation no matter how bad they hurt feelings…..the press was number one with the Founders…..I will agree and the people will not for they must feed their bigotries….chuq
