Mature tree earned Rockefeller honor

I must defend the family in Queensbury who donated their 90-year-old spruce for the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.
About 10 years ago, I responded to an ad from State GSA requesting donations for the Empire State Plaza Christmas tree and offered the balsam fir in my yard. The state arborist came to look at it, and it was a beautiful tree, just what they needed.
But the tree was in my backyard and, even though the lot behind me was vacant, the ground would not have supported the heavy-lift equipment needed for the harvest, so state GSA had to pass.
In the years since, I tried to save my tree, even having Davey Tree Experts inject nutrients into the ground root system (they made no guarantee that it would work, but it was worth trying).
In the recent years since, the larger branches began falling off and, last winter, it was time, and I counted about 60 rings on the stump. Trees, like all living things, will reach end-of-life.
If the tree from Queensbury was anything like my tree, it was at its most beautiful at near end-of-life, thus the right time for harvest. I wish I could have seen my tree go out in a blaze of Christmas glory, rather than fall apart the way it did.

Justice system not favorable to victims

On the news the other night, it showed some brazen crooks who stole used oil from Paesan’s Pizza.
The owner said that loss would cost him $1,500. He then was allowed to talk to the suspect. The suspect told him he’d been arrested four times and was released after paying a fine.
A couple of months ago, Nancy Pelosi’s husband made $4 million on a stock deal. Some accused him of insider trading.
She said the stock information was public domain and anyone could have used it.
However, her husband had the knowledge firsthand. She said he had to pay a fine, which was in the hundreds.  You don’t have to be a math scholar to see that the payback is overwhelming.
Our government doesn’t want the criminals to feel bad about their actions. It’s good to give them a chance for redemption.
As for their victims…

Rotterdam made right choice on solar

Rotterdam lawmakers made a wise decision in placing a moratorium on solar development in the town. Solar promoters like to push ahead without mentioning the many downsides of those projects.
Monarch butterflies are declining in numbers. Honeybees pollinate much of our food supply. You won’t find either in a solar field. Bird authorities tell us birds have declined by 50% over the past 50 years. Loss of habitat is a big reason. Our agricultural base is declining at a time when the worldwide demand for food is increasing.
And anyone who has seen a solar field knows they are a blight on the countryside.
All of this in a state with large amounts of clean burning, environmentally friendly, untapped natural gas in the Marcellus region of western New York. Solar fields are not environmentally friendly. Good job by Rotterdam lawmakers.

Justice system is set up to protect the criminals. From crooked political figures from city government to Federal. They protect the pedophile educator groomers, to the criminals that assault private citizens and nothing happens to them. The two tier law system will be exposed for what it is. They want the criminals creating havoc then the people cry out for help. The government says we can help but everyone will have to give up their weapons. Sound familiar? The current administration implemnets these plans for a globalization government. Wake up citizens you see right before your eyes.

“Justice system is set up to protect the criminals. From crooked political figures from city government to Federal.”

Thank you for acknowledging that Donald Trump is being protected for his crimes of murder, treason, and rape under the guise of an honest legal system.
I’m with you hoping the bastard gets what’s coming to him!

Bill Marincic

It seems like all of the times the loony left on here called me a liar and conspiracy theorist is laughable since so many have come to pass. These lefties are the ones who will be the first on the train cars because the government told them so. Everything is Trump.

For the third time, why no answer!

So again tell us what percentage of African American blood is in your genetic history. Make sure it the same amount you told us during your ranting defense of Derek Chauvin days. (wouldn’t want to catch you in a lie)

Remember when you put the blame of George Floyd’s murder back on Floyd for “not surrendering?” You were then accused of being a racist, and said that couldn’t be possible because you had Black blood in your body, which in itself is a ridiculous /untrue statement. (anyone can be a racist) So again I ask what is that percentage? $20,000 may be at stake here Mr. “Put your money where your mouth is”

Please answer!

Bill Marincic

Restifo you sound like a broken record with your racist diatribe. Give it up, your stupid little posts are old and worn out like you.

No!!!!

Now for the fourth time, “put your money her your mouth is” answer, and we’ve got your stupid bet.

I agree Hooligans. You are an actual warrior in my book. I served in the USMC but by the grace of god didn’t see combat. Much respect to you sir.

(snort)
I doubt it. Based on your behavior here you’re an embarrassment to the Marine Corps, many of whom I’m proud to be friends with. I’d have to see your discharge papers to believe it. But I won’t be a creep about it.

Hooligans, your reputation here is solid and I, as a child of the 60’s, recognize the trauma inflicted on you all in war and when you returned by your own country. Thank you.

Steven Flynn

Chuck D. the liar trying to make face. You’re a disgusting man Chuck and a total phony.

Steven Flynn

And Chuck, I’ll bet you didnt have the gonads to serve one day in the military. Am I right sir?

Steven Flynn

Well did u Chuck? I served from 1982 – 1988. Basic at MCRD, stationed at Camp Pendleton, MOS was field wireman. You?

Steven Flynn

Chuck must be busy cracking secret codes for the government. Putting those expert forensic skills to work.

I’m sorry, with the acres of septic effluent you’ve spewed here, suddenly we’re supposed to believe you? Have you learned anything about computers than typing complete sentences?
No, friend. You’re just a wannabee. Real soldiers show a lot more self-discipline and self-respect than you.
Fail.

Steven Flynn

You’re just pissed that I called your bs out last night Chuck, this is you lashing out. You sir are an angry phony man, everything u write proves that. You have no credentials whatsoever yet u claim to, living an alternative life on the internet seems to be your thing. You like to attack William and get really personal with him but when someone does it to u, you whine and cry like a child. You’re a small man with a big mouth. You have no idea what a soldier is, you werent brave enough to become one.

Yes, we could have this fun all night so I’m going to stop it here.
I just wanted to let you know that you have no credibility, and to make a claim like “I was a heavily decorated war hero” and “I really wanted to shoot a gun at real people but darn it I hurt my foot!” won’t get you mess at the PX.
Loser.

Bill Marincic

Oh fake name Chuck D weren’t you the people the 60s hippies that inflicted the pain on the our soldiers coming back calling them baby killers and now you stand up and cheer on people that want to kill their babies. Please give me a break. The hypocrisy is sickening.

Yes, Marincic, I’ll be a “broken record” to you with the same few posts because you don’t listen to anything anyway.

Life is about so much more than you and your narrow minded skewed interpretations of how you believe it is, as well as how you believe it should be.

You’re not a historian, you’re not a philosopher, you’re not an educator, you’re not a scientist. What you are is a clueless, aggressive individual with a brash arrogance, that exposes your ignorance of so many aspects of life, reality, and what is truly important for a harmonious existence of all humans, including how to protect our fragile environment. Your god does not love you.

In addition to the above, it’s too bad you are clueless to the fact that you’re just a pawn, part of a vehicle that is on a crash course to destroy America, as well as the world, being led by the Adolf Trump Putin’s of the world.

Bill Marincic

Are you trying to impress me? It’s not working. I don’t believe that you served in Vietnam. Stolen valor like your fake name

Marincic: I have no need to prove to you my bono fides. If you think insulting me will draw me out you are badly mistaken. BTW your last statement is true keyboard warrior language. I know that if I had said that you would have cried to Mahoney and it would be taken down. But I will not complain. I will let others judge your words for what they are.

Congratulations to moderate Republican Lisa Murkowski who has defeated Trump backed Kelly Tshibaka in the Alaska senate race. A coalition of independents, non-MAGA Republicans, and Democrats seems to have won the day in Alaska. There is evidence in many elections that this coalition is working to return America to sanity and away from MAGA extremism and lies.

Many prominent supporters of Trump in the Republican party see the inevitability of his declining role in their party and are backing away from him. Chris Christie slammed Trump for his lack of judgment for meeting with Nick Fuentes, a white supremacist who has espoused antisemitic and racist rhetoric. William Barr, his hand-picked AG sees grounds for indicting Trump on charges of stealing and improperly storing top secret government documents.

Even MAGA politician Senator Mo Brooks has said it would be a bad idea to nominate Trump for president in 2024.

Perhaps even more importantly, many wealth Republican donors have pulled their support from Trump. They include former Trump supporters Stephen Schwarzman, Thomas Peterffy, Ronald Lauder, and Robert and Rebekah Mercer.

Bill Marincic

WHO CARES? Murkowski has held office for 20 years and she barely beat a novice and first-timer, I’m doubtful she will win again.

Life is about so much more than you and your narrow minded skewed interpretations of how you believe it is, as well as how you believe it should be.

You’re not a historian, you’re not a philosopher, you’re not an educator, you’re not a scientist.

In addition to the above, it’s too bad you are clueless to the fact that you’re just a pawn, part of a vehicle that is on a crash course to destroy America, as well as the world, being led by the Adolf Trump Putin’s of the world.

Now like the good little hypocrite you are, again, call me out for name-calling. But before you do please read the following which are a few of your comments from yesterday and so far today.

“You racists love to call the kettle Black, no pun intended. I imagine none of you have ever had friends other than old white clowns like yourselves”…. “stupid old lefties like you clowns make me laugh”… “No it’s the fact that you are cowards”…
“lgb EXACTLY, the leftist loonies, or the echo chamber, or as you call them the donkey clowns”…. “I find you all to be the epitome of stupid lefties and I enjoy bashing your stupid anti-American ideas”…. “A bunch of crazy old lefties from the 70s”…. “I owe you whacko lefties nothing”…. “You must have been a lousy teacher”….

Bill Marincic

I see you just posted another one of your angry posts, attacking someone that doesn’t agree with you. What a shocker that’s all you know how to do, you’re just an angry old man. It’s past your bedtime Lou drink your milk and take your pills and go night. I’m flattered that he’s old, useless fool, like you has nothing better to do than copy and paste the things I write. It must give you great pleasure to read something that’s common sense as opposed to the crap that you write.

Mr. Bill 🤡 are you upset with Lisa Murkowski a republican because she voted to convict Trump? Did you say yesterday that you don’t go against republicans because they didn’t align themselves with Trump? Murkowski voted for Trump policies over 90 % of the time. Why do you exactly hate her now?

NPR reports: (11/26)

“Half of Twitter’s top 100 advertisers appear to no longer be advertising on the website. A report from Media Matters for America states that these 50 advertisers have spent almost $2 billion on Twitter ads since 2020 and more than $750 million just in 2022.

Seven additional advertisers have slowed their advertising to almost nothing, according to the report, which was published on Tuesday. These companies have paid Twitter more than $255 million since 2020.

Chevrolet, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc., Ford, Jeep, Kyndryl, Merck & Co. and Novartis AG all issued statements about halting Twitter ads. The others ceased advertising on the platform for a “significant period of time following direct outreach, controversies, and warnings from media buyers.”

Mr. Brandon 🤡 they really hooked you on teachers and pedophilia …Was this because Mike Pompeo said last week that about the head of the teachers Union? Pedophiles can come from anywhere. A lot of the time it’s a family member …A neighbor…And even car dealership

Was reading a story titled “The Real Americana.”
Part of which was about how Americans of all races/ethnicities are a part our country and what the flag represents to them.

The following is a paragraph from the story. Something that I have often thought about, that truly upsets me, especially so on recalling the images of 1/6/2021

MAGA Republicans, right-wing extremists, white nationalists have all laid claim to the flag to represent their version of America. They’ve planted it on their toxic soil, where they foment lies, disinformation and hate. They’ve managed to muscle Old Glory away from too many of their fellow citizens — sometimes without much of a fight.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Some Trump-excited 1/6 insurrectionists carried Confederate flags, the standard of the secessionist states fighting for the continuation and spread of “America’s Peculiar Institution.” That is the euphemism used to avoid calling what the American system of forced labor actually was, chatell slavery.

In some historical forms of forced labor slaves had certain rights to personal property, protection from excessive punishment, and to have a family.

In America’s chatell system slaves were considered property with no rights. They could own nothing; their children could be auctioned off before their very eyes; any punishment including torture and execution was permitted.

I hope that doesn’t offend those who hate to tell the truth about our history and want confederate leaders honored with statues, schools, and other public buildings carrying the names of these despicable people.

ANTHONY J SANTO

As there is no response from the MAGA side of the aisle about the need to honor Confederate “heroes” or to whitewash American history, I guess you all agree with me.

ANTHONY J SANTO

I’m looking for explanations as to why civilian possession of assault rifles and high capacity magazines should not be outlawed.

No nonsense about how they’re no worse than 22 caliber rifles. Everyone knows they are the first choice of most of America’s mass murders. Everyone has read the kind of damage they have done to innocent victims, children and teenagers in school and adults going about their day to day lives.

Police are not regularly so heavily armed and most want these weapons illegal for civilians.

Direct answers are welcome. I am genuinely curious about how anyone justifies legal possession of these military style assault weapons.

Bill Marincic

Don’t flatter yourself all you do is mumble through the insults in the ignorance every single day I feel bad for the kids that had you for a teacher, I’m sure you graded on a curve depending on their politics then they graduate from your class and went to college looking for a safe space?

ANTHONY J SANTO

I’m still batting 1000. I’m not surprised that no one on the MAGA right can respond with real answers to my last two posts. They are who they are, exactly as they reveal themselves to be.

ANTHONY J SANTO

11/26:

The Guardian reports:

“John Bolton, former national security adviser to Donald Trump, has described the former US president’s act as “old and tired” and said the Republican party is ready to move on to a “fresh face”.

“There are a lot of reasons to be against Trump being the nominee but the one I’m hearing now as I call around the country, talking to my supporters and others about what happened on 8 November, is the number of people who have just switched Trump off in their brain,” Bolton told the Guardian.

“If he got the nomination, not only would he lose the general election, but he would take an awful lot of Republican candidates down with him.”

The tide against MAGA Republicans and Trump’s “leadership is becoming the real tsunami.

There was ample evidence of this in 2020, but people like Elise! need to keep the funds flowing in…

“Arizona Analysis Shows That Many Republicans Did Not Vote for Trump in 2020”
May 24, 2021, 4:55 pm
Rick Hasen

Steven Rosenfeld:

About 75,000 Republican-leaning voters in Arizona’s two most populous counties did not vote to re-elect President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, according to an analysis of every vote cast by a longtime Arizona Republican Party election observer and election technologists familiar with vote-counting data.

ANTHONY J SANTO

The Associated Press reports:

State-level law enforcement units created after the 2020 presidential election to investigate voter fraud are looking into scattered complaints more than two weeks after the midterms but have provided no indication of systemic problems.

That’s just what election experts had expected and led critics to suggest that the new units were more about politics than rooting out widespread abuses. Most election-related fraud cases already are investigated and prosecuted at the local level.

Florida, Georgia and Virginia created special state-level units after the 2020 election, all pushed by Republican governors, attorneys general or legislatures.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Please, don’t skip over today’s DG headline story: Study: Guyanese population had no impact on crime.”

Some excerpts to whet your appetite:

“Over the years the Guyanese community has helped change the face of the city by revitalizing properties and opening new businesses, while sharing their customs and religion.”

“But there’s one thing that Guyanese immigrants and their American descendants have not contributed to in the city: Crime.”

“…an influx in immigration has led to a decline in crime in local neighborhoods.”

And all these positive developments were set in motion by Republican Mayor Al Jurczinski. He encouraged immigrants living in NYC to move north by offering homes in need of rehabilitation at $1.00. Of course that was before hatred of immigrants led by Trump and his supporters took the GOP down a road so dark that only the most bigoted hard-core and desperate politicians who supported him remain loyal.

Steven Flynn

What a stupid false equivalence and notice you left out the word illegal? What is wrong with having a border that stops illegal immigration and forces them to come through a legal port of entry? Would’nt it be better that people are vetted at the border and given a legal chance to succeed in this country? Why encourage someone to come into the country and hide in the shadows the rest of their lives? I’ve never understood the liberal views on immigration. Maybe you can clear it up for me.

Bill Marincic

Santo you are a complete fool, who considers the Guyanese criminals not me many are good friends of mine. Al Jurzinski is a Republican and a very, very close friend of mine, I know 100% the story of how he brought the Guyanese here, it wasn’t easy, but he did it because he’s a Republican. He didn’t try to fill this town full of illegals like the Democrats have multiple times with this sanctuary city crap he brought people that were here legally that could add to the city rather than subtract. nice try, but as usual, you are wrong.

“…but as usual, you are wrong.”
As he fumbles the facts again, like the drunk waiter that can’t be fired.

BTW, at least one here, and no doubt more, could drop a few names of heavy hitters and law enforcement who are acquaintances but don’t feel a need to try to boost their sense of importance on their coattails. I will say I once shared an elevator alone with Frank Duci though.

Bill Marincic

Chuckie, I don’t need to name drop, my friends are my friends and they would have zero problems telling you that they are my friends and hold me in high esteem as I do them. You should know this because with your massive experience you would have hacked into me through the super secret back door of my phone and listened to my conversations. Or you are a fraud with a fake name which I believe is the real truth.

ANTHONY J SANTO

My bet? His friendship is as real as his transsexual brother or Black ancestry. I’m putting $20,000,000 on the table. He better put up or shut up. What a sad case.

letsgobrandon

Only a socialist like the donkey clowns on the DG post would bridge the Guyanese moving from the crime plagued NYC to upstate NY to Trump. I can tell you first hand the Guyanese in Schenectady that a majority of them support Trump and are racist against the African American population and despise anyone who is on social services. The country of Guyana hate the African population in Guyana and attribute them to the problems of Guyana.They have done a lot to improve the neighborhoods that they move in. Take a look at the rents in Schenectady and see who owns the properties. They are capitalist and they would not support your Socialist agenda.

ANTHONY J SANTO

“letsgobrandon,” In case you and those like you don’t get it. A bigot is prejudiced against groups of people based on their, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or whatever grouping the bigot chooses. This means they pre-judge individuals in the group based on stereotypes that exist only in their minds.

“I can tell you first hand the Guyanese in Schenectady that a majority of them support Trump and are racist against the African American population and despise anyone who is on social services.

“The country of Guyana hate the African population in Guyana and attribute them to the problems of Guyana.”

As awkwardly stated as “letsgobrandon’s” feelings are they clearly demonstrate the mind-set of a bigot. As do many of his hero’s statements. Trump clearly prefers light complected people to darker skinned people. Do you remember when he mused about wanting more immigrants from Norway and fewer from “sh–hole countries.” What color do you think most of the people in those countries are?

“Why not stop using Pirates and Devils as namesakes and Mascots?” Richard Felak asks in today’s (Sunday) editorial letter. Answer; Because, unlike with Native Americans, pirates and devils have no association to a race, ethnicity or cultural heritage. That’s why.

Marincic: Your belief I would actually exert any effort to impress you is the true mark of a narcissist. The sun does not rise and set on you.

Another one posting in reference to Marincic:

Life is about so much more than you and your narrow minded skewed interpretations of how you believe it is, as well as how you believe it should be.

You’re not a historian, you’re not a philosopher, you’re not an educator, you’re not a scientist. What you are is a clueless, aggressive individual with a brash arrogance, that exposes your ignorance of so many aspects of life, reality, and what is truly important for a harmonious existence of all humans, including how to protect our fragile environment. Your god does not love you.

In addition to the above, it’s too bad you are clueless to the fact that you’re just a pawn, part of a vehicle that is on a crash course to destroy America, as well as the world, being led by the Adolf Trump Putin’s of the world.

Bill Marincic

I keep being flattered That you would take so much time to copy everything I write. I hope you read it over and over again and it brings you some knowledge because it seems that you lack a lot of it. I guess being an angry old man or an angry old liberal is quite boring, keep copying and pasting.

Easy copy paste:

Happy to see Georgia’s early voting for the run-off is being taken advantage of with long lines starting early Saturday morning. Sad to see how ill-equipped our voting system still is, in large part crippled by the Republicans’ many strawman and red herring and snipe hunting attempts to cripple the vote.

Republicans: It is plainly obvious that you fear losing, yet are trapped in your flawed ideology that won’t accept any form of compromise, or democracy for that matter. It’s as prominent as the insane Trump worship this country’s had to, and still does, endure. It’s as obvious as the Punch and Judy infighting to the death you very publicly wage over your party’s leadership and direction. And even though you barely won the House, you won’t be able to do anything with it except try to exact your foolish revenge (which will also be impotent). Your current course has no winning strategy and your agenda has no specifics. Ever wonder what the point is? Or are you now the Nihilist Party where nothing matters anymore except your religion?

I didn’t make any predictions on the midterms because I have a memory still, and know polling is flawed and means little. That of course didn’t stop our hapless rightwing friends from braying about a Red Tidal Wave, or whatever; yet another bad choice amongst a constellation of bad choices they’ve made (ahem…Kansas, Trump Enterprises, 2000 Mules, Alex Jones, etc, etc).

But I’m feeling pretty good that sane Georgians will prevail in this run-off election and the esteemed Rev. Warnock will continue on; a man of the cloth who recognizes not everyone else is, nor needs to be. A democratic leader.

ANTHONY J SANTO

The early voting is certainly an indicator of Raphael Warnock’s ultimate victory. The thought of a man as ignorant as Herschel Walker sitting in the Senate and having a vote on matters as important as treaties, trade agreements, and all sorts of legislation is truly frightening. This is a man who claims the theory of evolution is false because there are still gorillas in the world, who talks about the relative powers of vampires and werewolfs at campaign rallies. Odin help us!

“The last time I met with the a white supremacist, it was in an armed standoff. I had a bulletproof vest on. We arrested them, prosecuted them, sent them to prison.

“And so, no, I don’t think it’s a good idea for a leader that’s setting an example for the country or the party to meet with an avowed, racist or anti-Semite.

“It’s very troubling and it shouldn’t happen. And we need to avoid those kinds of empowering the extremes. And when you meet with people, you empower and that’s what you have to avoid.

“You want to diminish their strength, not empower them, stay away from it.” – Outgoing Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who is mulling his own presidential bid.

Bill Marincic

Oh so now you’re with the FBI or the police Santo? Did you have a gun with your bulletproof vest and was the end of your gun painted red? What did the big bad white supremacists do? Where did he touch you?

heh, hoo boy-howdy!

But good to see someone come to the defense of the supremacists. Always good to have them out in the open where we can see them.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Lou, BM missed the fact that it was outgoing governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson (R), who made the statement I quoted. Of course when someone lies as glibly as he does, he assumes all people are pathological liars and it is a legitimate way to make your point.

ANTHONY J SANTO

In case some haven’t figured it out, Hutchinson is referring to his Orange Eminence, the naked Emperor (ugh!) and liar, Donald J. Trump, hero to the brainwashed and ultimate loser to the informed and thoughtful.

ANTHONY J SANTO

“Listen, Sean, we need to win. I mean, that’s just the fact. Our kids’ future depends on it. So, you know, we really all have a responsibility to message what Republican policies bring to this country.

“And I don’t know a party that can continue to lose like we have and keep their jobs. Everybody needs to evaluate what we are doing. Is it effective and are we messaging truly that our policies work?” – South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, taking a shot at Ronna McDaniel on Fox “New” yesterday

McDaniel’s challengers for RNC chair so far include Rep. Lee Zeldin and Mike Lindell.

Bill Marincic

As you can see by the last two years with a democrat run country that with you idiots in charge you have literally destroyed America. In two years, you’ve taken the number one country in the world and turned into a crap hole with millions more people hiding in the shadows with crime out of control prices through the roof along with gas, oil and heating fuel prices. People are starving so they can put gas in your car to get to work and you people think it’s a great thing how narrow-minded and stupid you people are.

ANTHONY J SANTO

The intelligence of MAGA leader and would be autocrat but constant loser, Donald Trump, really shines through in this post by the “LUMP” himself on “Truth Social”:

“Jack Smith (nice, soft name, isn’t it?), is a political hit man, who is totally compromised, and shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near our already highly WEAPONIZED & CORRUPT ‘Justice’ Department and FBI.”

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” William Shakespeare

I wonder if the greedy bigot in Mar-a-Lago or any of his sycophants know what Shakespeare meant. How adolescent of this embarrassment to our country to constantly make fun of people’s names. What an example this lazy fast-food gulping, diet coke swilling man is to our country. But, he’s going down brothers and sisters; he’s going down! Our nation will rise and shine again but we’ll never forget the smudge on our history he represents. It will help to stop any man or woman like him from gaining power again in our beloved country.

Also, the lethargic ex-president is showing his lack of patriotism with his constant and unfounded attacks on our institutions of government. But, the lemmings will follow him over the cliff; let’s hope they don’t take the rest of us with them.

You mean Jack Smith, Lead Prosecutor for the International Criminal Court.
Yes, that has a nice, soft ring to it. And you don’t have to be Svengali to see the fear in Trump’s mind. His words of fake defiance say it all.

The MAGA posters are getting really angry and desperate. Did you notice BM thought I was referring to myself in the post which I clearly attributed to the man who said it, Asa Hutchinson, outgoing governor of Arkansa and a Republican? Also, his fascination with pedophilia comes through when for no apparent reason he asks “Where did he touch you?” He needs help and I will never communicate directly with him again. He is clearly ineducable, a vile but pathetic man.

Yes I noticed….He is really slipping deeper into the Trump pit of despair. I took the day of her today because I feel sorry for him ….I know I shouldn’t because he puts himself in these situations. He’s like an addict who needs Trump and can’t get trump off his back. He needs a family intervention..Maybe the African-American and Trans people in his family can help take the plunge back to reality.

Bill there is no sense in arguing with stupid. Stupid is ,is what stupid does. The MAGA train is rolling and regardless of who the nominee is they will be a product of MAGA. So the Donkey clowns can say what they want about Trump. He started a movement in this country and has woke the sleeping masses to the D.S. corruption. They will take down the pedophile groomers in our education system, They will convict the D.S. politicians and their cohorts. The MSM will be a thing of the past along with censored social media. The clowns sit fat and lazy retired from grooming and indoctrinating children into socialism. The MAGA train is coming and there will be a Conservative MAGA at the helm of our country. Returning it to a REPUBLIC not a democracy.

Just like the midterms, right? You sure showed us! The Big Red Clown Car, coming to your town soon!
Ah-OO-gah!

Just you wait till next time!!!

Tony, They’re quite ignorant, if of nothing else, what happened in nazi Germany. The Parallels are like two rails on train tracks. Sieg heil mein Führer trump! Hello MAGA midget-minded mislead manipulated morons, goodbye democracy.

Occam’s Razor, Lou: they believe their god has their back. It’s the most logical explanation for so much self-destructive behavior. It’s not the Christian God i grew up with though. It’s a false idol they think favors the whites, gave us a false and deeply corrupt savior, blessed this country as theirs; the Chosen Ones.
Its all so cartoonish.

I believe that as well, Trump showed America that we can be America and love our country without bowing down to anyone. Trump showed the world that we will not back down and if you hit us once we will hit you ten times. And you are also right LGB that our next President will either be Trump or someone just like Trump. I can hear the whines of the clown show already

Good point. When the Twitter liberal bias was so rampant pre Elon, millions of accounts were locked, suspended, or shadow banned for merely questioning the rot in our electoral process. Their response? “you dont like it, leave” Now that Elon took over, if u dont like it, leave. Fair is fair. For those that have left, theyll be back. Most of them were attention mongers and being irrelevant eats them inside. They loved those blue checks next to their names.

ANTHONY J SANTO

I don’t know what you’re talking but then neither do you. There was no “rot” in our electoral process. That has been proven in dozens of court cases, many presided over by Trump appointed judges. His own AG, Bill Barr, said the election was free and fair as did Cyber Security head Chris Krebs, a life long Republican.

My post is referencing advertisers, not people like Trump; NPR explained why he was banned:

“Twitter has permanently suspended President Trump’s account over a pattern of behavior that violated company rules.

The action was the most sweeping punishment any major social media company has ever taken against Trump, who has used his Twitter account to announce White House policy, attack rivals and widely disseminate misinformation.

For years, Twitter has been under pressure from critics to limit the reach of Trump’s falsehood-laced tweets. Calls for Trump to be banned from Twitter have also been long mounting.”

The lies Trump has told and the crimes he committed are continuing to endanger our country because of gullible people like you.

In your opinion angry liberal athiest one. You lefties loved it when Twitter and FB censored conservative voices and those who questioned the bs that our government dishes. Now that those voices are no longer censored, you whine and cry like babies. You hate free speech, you like filtered speech, the kind thats like music to your ears. Those companies that left will be back after the dust settles, 250M potential customers will bring them back. The lefty freakout over free speech is hilarious actually, how dare we have an even playing field. Here’s a great example for you: FB and Twitter censored and removed most anyone who challenged that effectiveness of vaccines, it was a taboo subject and the censors would nail u if u challenged the governments word. Joe Biden told us, if u get the jab the virus stops spreading, remember that? Well now the Washington Post has reported that there are more vaccinated people who have died than non vaccinated. If u suggested that a year ago on those Platforms, you wouldve been censored or removed.

From the very same WaPo article:

“Being unvaccinated is still a major risk factor for dying from covid-19. But efficacy wanes over time, and an analysis out last week from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention highlights the need to get regular booster shots to keep one’s risk of death from the coronavirus low, especially for the elderly.”

The saga of MAGA v. MAGA continues:

“Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes has turned on Donald Trump just days after attending dinner with the former president at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

In a series of Telegram posts, Fuentes called for a new far-right candidate to “outflank” Trump in 2024 as he questioned what “Christian Americans” would get out of a new Trump White House.”

What a model of White supremacist hatred the phony Fuentes is! But it is fun to see MAGA leaders turning on each other like the jealous self-centered fools they are, much like their worshipers.

I’m still looking since I got no response to this earlier post:

“I’m looking for explanations as to why civilian possession of assault rifles and high capacity magazines should not be outlawed.

No nonsense about how they’re no worse than 22 caliber rifles. Everyone knows they are the first choice of most of America’s mass murders. Everyone has read the kind of damage they have done to innocent victims, children and teenagers in school and adults going about their day to day lives.

Police are not regularly so heavily armed and most want these weapons illegal for civilians.

Direct answers are welcome. I am genuinely curious about how anyone justifies legal possession of these military style assault weapons.”

Steven Flynn

Because armed people will not willingly load themselves into railroad boxcars. Are u going to protect me from those scumbag illegal owners who’re walking the streets with 9’s? Do you really think a ban is going to stop them? If so, you’re delusional as all hell. If you dont want to carry then thats your right but leave the rest of us the hell alone and start cleaning up our inner city streets.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Are you really that ill-informed? Obviously the line on the type of weapon civilians may legally carry has to be drawn somewhere. No one is trying to take reasonable firearms used in hunting or home defense away from you. Are you walking around with an AR-15 to protect yourself from the “scumbag illegal owners who’re walking the streets?”

I am leaving you alone. I express my views; you express yours. Who is loading you into box cars? Get a grip man.

Again, Twitter is a private platform and can air the views it wishes to. Elon Musk is running it so poorly he is loosing advertisers. He is the one loosing those checks.

Are you really in another universe?

Are you calling for vigilantes to “clean up our inner city streets?” You are an advertisement for stricter gun control, especially background checks and mental health evaluations.
