    The truth is painful but President Trump didn’t create the truth that Biden and his son are crooks. Nor did he make the Democratic Party the evil communists that they are. He brought it to light

            I think the fact that their ‘charity foundation’ has been voluntarily closed by the family in accordance with the law which found their ‘foundation’ had been illegally shifting money around to their personal benefit would be enough for anyone. In addition, they have been barred from ever running a ‘charitable foundaiton’ in New York is another example of their criminality. You just don’t care about that because it goes against your agenda.

    The President is going after corruption! I just read a comment “if a candidate had committed murder …would that be covered up because he was running for political office? This investigation was in operation before Biden was a candidate. The shame is on Biden not our President! Speak out ! Remain calm! No violence!

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.” The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60’s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

      With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War. Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. So, say anything you want about President Trump- I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!

    It seems to me that if the Bidens’ were innocent in all this that the democratic party would be the ones screaming for a full investigation, but they are not. Joe Biden not only used withholding aid from Ukraine in order to stop an investigation into the company Hunter is involved with, but he also bragged about it in a public setting so his admission of guilt damns him. But he did get a prosecutor fired and stopped an investigation in a foreign country. And, he did it while serving as vice president of the United States. So while I don’t doubt that the left wants to impeach Trump, I have to wonder how much of it is a smokescreen to try and distract people from the actions of an admitted criminal who is a ranking member of their party.

        I think it was a different era. People expected their president to be honest, Presidential, prudent and mature. Now, many people have thrown their own morality to the wind and like a president who acts like them. They enjoy his temper tantrums, his meltdowns and his lies because he makes it seem as if we watching a sitcom. He is the Roseanne of politics and many don’t see the destruction he is causing to our democracy. I can’t wait for his show to be cancelled.

      This is part of the reason trump campaign pumped money into social media.

      Many of these people who spread lies post and run on to the next one and you will see a lot of copy and paste of the same drivel.

      I hope this time people are better educated instead of taking trumps word everything is fake news which is to get folks to stay away from any news reporting the bad he is doing art of distraction.

Thousands of people out of work, a regional industry in ruins, and Trump did all of it. What kind of screwup can’t make money in a casino?! Answer: one who’s stealing all the profits.

    It appears the State Department produced this email in 2016 in redacted form, blacking out Clinton’s personal email address and the discussion about Clinton’s wanting to keep her email address closely guarded.
    “Judicial Watch just caught the State Department and DOJ red-handed in another email cover-up – they all knew about the Clinton email account but covered up the smoking-gun email showing this guilty knowledge for years,”

    He wasn’t supposed to release the transcripts. Or the whistleblower report. He was expected to do what any president would have done – what President Obama always did. Hide the evidence. As House Democrats rolled out their latest meticulously choreographed, perfectly timed, and broadly coordinated attack on President Trump, they weren’t counting on the president’s unprecedented transparency. Nobody releases a transcript of calls between heads of state. But Donald Trump did.

    Obama put an end to terror asylum restrictions by letting suspects who provided only “insignificant” or “limited” material support of terrorists go free. Obama prides himself as a president with the best record on immigration control. The media always points out that he deported more citizens than Bush. But, this fact proves that he wasn’t so harsh on suspects of terror.

      Despite knowing the risks of a coupe, Obama provided military weapons to the Syrian opposition many of whom were working for ISIS. In fact, he ordered shipments on the very same day that he began his fight for more gun control in the U.S. Just before he left office, he stood by his actions and said he would continue to provide aid.

      Obama went against the constitution and broke the Second Amendment by passing gun restrictions without the support of congress. The illegal law required private gun sellers to undergo inconvenient background checks. The law lead to numerous false accusations and gridlock due to clerical errors.

      During his campaign, Obama claimed he would fight for our teachers and our men and women in blue. But, once he got into the Oval Office his tune changed. In 2009 at the peak of the Chrysler bankruptcy case Obama broke the Fifth Amendment by illegally treating unsecured creditors the majority of whom were retired teachers and officers from Indiana.

      Liberals try to bash Donald Trump for his love for firing employees. But, no one can be compared to the king of the axe, President Obama. In 2011, Boeing hired 1,000 employees to maintain their factory in South Carolina. But, when Obama found out they were non-Union he ordered them to be fired.

      Obama used his influence to run illegal IRS investigations on top conservative groups. The investigations turned into a major scandal that required organizations using the phrase “tea party” to reveal private information and even social media posts. Obama met with the head investigator only two days before the ordeal began.

      In 2012, U.S. soldiers and officials were attacked in Benghazi resulting in two deaths. Obama sided with Hillary Clinton and blamed a leaked Youtube video for the attack. In reality, the attack was not spontaneous and the event could have been prevented if Clinton and Obama had provided the Benghazi locations with proper security.

      When Obama first entered office he appealed to the liberals by giving $535 million to a green-energy company. Soon after the money was transferred the company failed and went out of business. Investigations found that the company’s executives had previously given large donations to his campaign in 2008.
      During the 2013 Egyptian revolution, the citizens overthrew Mubarak which voided contracts between the U.S. and Egypt. Despite ruling that it was illegal for the government to provide aid to Egypt, Obama still prohibited funds to go to the nation. His decision was a clear violation of a federal law.

    If I were president, I’d ask foreign leaders for any information they might have about corruption and the dossier is a prime example of that. Wouldn’t you? But the hate-Trump media, which is now driving the impeachment hysteria, is framing both of these minor stories as something heinous. The press is also deifying the whistle-blower placing him right alongside Nathan Hale. It’s all sooooooo corrupt.
