BREAKING

  




TRUMP TAKEN TO HOSPITAL AFTER SHOTS HEARD AT RALLY.


VIDEO SHOWS HIS RIGHT EAR BLOODY.



THIS MAGA WANTS YOU TO PRAY FOR TRUMP...

y'know, the serial liar and adulterer, the guy who's a convicted felon and adjudicated sexual assaulter/rapist and tax fraudster who's facing dozens more criminal charges.

AND!

The guy who for years palled around with Epstein and Maxwell, two notorious pedophiles who procured and raped little girls. Yes, that guy. The guy who wished Ghislaine "well" when she was arrested for her crimes --  

That guy.

That's who the MAGA quoted below wants you to pray for so that he can lead America, and represent American values to the world! 

MAGA man below believes Trump and what he is and has been all his life is what is best for America.

Oh, and he wants you to arm yourself against the Americans who don't agree that a serial adulterer, convicted felon, tax cheat, and sexual assaulter/rapist would best represent the United States of America.

These people are threatening the lives of Americans who do not buy into their fantasies and magical thinking.

I'm not making this up:


"It’s Day 1,340 of the most recent coup. The taking of the American Government, by enemies both foreign and domestic.


Mostly Domestic


The American People face a clear and present danger.
At the border. In the White House. In Congress.

If you disagree with the direction this country is taking, you are on a list.
If you oppose the theft of this government, you are an insurrectionist.

If you oppose the murder of babies in the womb, you are threat to society and must be punished.

Is this the vision for this country our forefathers had?

No.

What is to be our response?

Arm yourselves. Get a gun  protect you and yours and learn to use it.

Arm yourselves. Spiritually. This is a spiritual battle of epic proportions.


You see the political enemy, learn to see the spiritual enemy behind them. It’s not hard. They are described in the Bible.

Pray. Pray for Trump. Pray for our nation. Pray for those unjustly persecuted by our government for protesting the theft of the election and the murder of babies.

TRUMP LIED WHEN HE SAID HE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT PROJECT 2025

 


SURPRISE! 


The lying liar, Donald Trump, is lying to the American people when he says he knows nothing about Project 2025.

Listen to him slur his words and say nothing more than a salad of words.

GUEST POST BY DAVE MILLER

 Here's some good news, if Americans care anymore about facts and the economy...


In the 1980 presidential campaign, Ronald Reagan posed the ultimate question to Jimmy Carter in the final debate, asking… “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” That question essentially ended Carter’s campaign and Reagan went on to a landslide win a few days later.


It’s a fair question to ask at every election when America is considering reelecting a president, or in our case this year, one of two presidents.


Let’s look at the numbers, all from US Government sources, all with Covid figures taken out to be as fair as possible… and remember, currently, former President Trump is arguing that right now we are in the middle of the “worst economy in US history”.


Here are the financial and economic data points, stripping out the effects of Covid.


Average Job Growth per month per president since Reagan…


Reagan - 160K Jobs

Bush I - 54K Jobs

Clinton - 242K Jobs

Bush II - 22K Jobs

Obama - 110K Jobs

Trump - 182K jobs

Biden - 268K jobs


Manufacturing Jobs…


Under Trump approximately 800,000 new manufacturing jobs were created.

Under Biden, after we recovered those jobs lost to Covid, an additional new 250,000 jobs have been created. We now have more manufacturing jobs than at any time since the 2008 financial crisis.


GDP Growth, again with Covid effects stripped away


Under Trump - average growth of 2.6% annual rate

Under Biden - average growth of 3.6% annual rate.


Inflation


Under Trump, we ran an average inflation rate of about 2.75%

Under Biden, we are currently sitting at about 3.5%. However, inflation did spike to 9% under Biden with, in some areas, food prices rising almost 20% in the last four years.


Wage Growth


Under Trump, annual wage growth was mostly flat at 3.5%

Under Biden, annual wage growth grew to almost 7% and has now settled to around 5%.


Federal Deficit, again with Covid effects and stimuli stripped away


Trump added 4.8 Trillion dollars to the US debt.

Biden added 2.2 Trillion dollars to the US debt.


Sources… US Department of the Treasury, US Federal Reserve Bank, US Bureau of Labor Statistics.


While individuals and some families may disagree from their personal perspective, the data shows overwhelmingly that the US economy is in better shape under Biden than during the Trump administration. 


Restaurants are packed, hotels are packed, vacation sites are packed and Americans continue to buy new, bigger and more expensive cars. And spend.


Wherever this horrible, worst economy in US history is, feelings aside, I can’t see it.


THIS US NEWSPAPER HAD THE COURAGE TO DO THIS:



Steven Beschloss:  "This wasn’t so hard, was it? Why is the Philadelphia inquirer able to grasp the danger facing America—and say so, refusing to normalize Trump—while so many others are bent on driving Biden out?"

 





Historian Timothy Snyder:






Just a reminder of what a disgusting liar Trump is, was, and will always be. Never believe anything he says:




"All three of the guys behind Project 2025 worked in the White House for Trump when he was president."


"Trump's own SuperPAC is running ads highlighting Project 2025."



Head of The Heritage Foundation, Kevin Roberts, on Trump and Project 2025:


“We need to understand what time it is in America. And right now, Donald Trump, whether someone likes it or not – I happen to like it – is the standard bearer for conservatives,” Roberts said recently on MSNBC. He has said the project is “institutionalizing Trumpism” and sets the course for the conservative movement’s policy aims for many years to come.

I no longer recognize America.

 

This guy sounds like the thousands of fascist thugs who've ever taken over a country and destroyed its democracy.




The Convicted Felon at his most recent rally:

 

The befuddled and rambling mind of a deteriorating felon.

Trump goes from talking about drug-addicted children dying in their mothers' arms to dirty airports. None of it is based in reality. We are witnessing the random thoughts of a scrambled brain.

PROJECT 2025 AND THE PAGES WHERE IT LAYS OUT SCHEMES TO FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA

 

When Trump was POTUS, his director of White House Personnel was John McEntee. McEntee is one of the architects of Project 2025.

Trump says he knows nothing about Project 2025. 

Trump is a liar. 


(click on the images to expand them)


Trumpers who worked on Project 2025:













Trump is also proposing Agenda 47.  What is it? 

 

"Agenda 47 (styled by the Trump campaign as Agenda47) is a package of proposals that Republican candidate Donald Trump states he would implement if elected as the 47th president of the United States. The plans include constructing "freedom cities" on empty federal land, investing in flying car manufacturing, introducing baby bonuses to encourage a baby boom, implementing protectionist trade policies, and over forty others. 

Seventeen of the policies that Trump says he will implement if elected would require congressional approval. Some of his plans are legally controversial, such as ending birthright citizenship, and may require amending the Constitution. 

Many of the proposals are contentious. One Agenda 47 proposal would impose the death penalty on drug dealers and human traffickers, as well as place Mexican cartels on the United States list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations. Trump also suggests deploying the National Guard to inner cities with high crime."






PS. For the good of the country, Trump should drop out of the race. 

No sane American wants a convicted felon, adjudicated sexual assaulter/rapist and tax fraudster, who is facing dozens more felony charges, to be the leader of our country.

SEEN ON A MAGA BLOG

 


jess says:

Leftist/liberals/fascists/communists are parasites. When they’re treated as such, many problems will go away.



We've all heard and read about Trump calling Liberals "vermin." But like a good little mindless mimic, the person above goes Trump one better, implying that Leftists/liberals should be treated like parasites, which is code for killing them. After all, that's what is done to parasites.

Before the convicted felon, Trump, I NEVER heard this sort of hatred from our fellow Americans.

Trump poisons everything he touches. And, unfortunately, weak-minded individuals, like the above-quoted commenter, don't see how manipulated he/she is by the master con man and criminal.

The mindless repetition of threatening to harm one's fellow Americans, just because you disagree with them politically, is a symptom of a sick and declining nation.



But, if you think that MAGA's comment is dumb, HOLD MY BEER:



"I agree with Z — this problem started in 2014, on Obama’s watch.  But this is not a shocker.  Who started World War I?  A Democrat.  Who started World War II?  A Democrat.  Who started the Korean War?  A Democrat.  Who started the Vietnam War?  A Democrat.  Who created Benghazi?  A Democrat.  Who started the Middle East Wars?  A Democrat wannabe named Bush." 
 




The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary on June 28, 1914, by a Serbian nationalist terrorist group called the Black Hand is considered the immediate cause of World War I. 

The start of World War II was September 1, 1939, when Nazi Germany invaded Poland without a formal declaration of war. In response, France and Great Britain issued ultimatums to Hitler, demanding that German forces withdraw from Poland immediately, and declared war on Germany two days later. 

After five years of simmering tensions on the Korean peninsula, the Korean War began on June 25, 1950, when the Northern Korean People's Army invaded South Korea in a coordinated general attack at several strategic points along the 38th parallel, the line dividing communist North Korea from the non-communist Republic 

Following the murder of President John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson took the United States step by step, via the Tonkin Gulf Resolution, Operation Rolling Thunder, and finally the July 1965 decision to deploy a large number of combat troops in South Vietnam, into a full-scale land war in Southeast Asia.  President Richard M. Nixon assumed responsibility for the Vietnam War as he swore the oath of office on January 20, 1969. 

Mustafa Al-Imam was sentenced to More than 19 years in prison for September 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. 

U.S. President George W. Bush argued for launching a military attack on Iraq. On March 17, 2003, Bush declared an end to diplomacy and issued an ultimatum to Saddam Hussein, giving the Iraqi president 48 hours to leave Iraq. Saddam refused, and the U.S. attacked on March 20. 

George W. Bush is a Republican, not a "wannabe Democrat," as the seriously uninformed person quoted-above wrote.

EPSTEIN'S BOOK HAD 14 LISTINGS FOR TRUMP

 


You know who isn't named in Epstein's book?


Joe Biden and Barack Obama.










Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein partied together for two decades.

This is what MAGA wants:

 

This is how third-world dictatorships operate. 

And MAGA is going to vote for this un-American, anti-democracy criminal.

We have never seen this kind of threat to our country -- not even in a time of war -- that we now have before us. All because a deeply damaged malignant narcissist and convicted felon and rapist has been successful in convincing so many gullibles of his greatness.



"Former President Donald Trump over the weekend escalated his vows to prosecute his political opponents, circulating posts on his social media website invoking “televised military tribunals” and calling for the jailing of President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Sens. Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer, and former Vice President Mike Pence, among other high-profile politicians. 

 Trump, using his account on Truth Social on Sunday, promoted two posts from other users of the site that called for the jailing of his perceived political enemies. 

 One post that he circulated Sunday singled out Liz Cheney, the former Wyoming Congress member who is a Republican critic of Trump’s, and called for her to be prosecuted by a type of military court reserved for enemy combatants and war criminals. 

 “Elizabeth Lynne Cheney is guilty of treason,” the post said. “Retruth if you want televised military tribunals.”

[skip]


"Trump has repeatedly called for the imprisonment of his political opponents, often singling out members of the Jan. 6 committee. But the two posts that Trump amplified Sunday particularly stand out. One proposed jailing an extensive list of high-ranking officials, including Trump’s former vice president, the top Republican in the Senate and the current president and vice president. 

The other invoked the dictatorial imagery of a televised military tribunal, which would strip Cheney of her right to due process similar to the military courts used to prosecute terror suspects at Guantรกnamo Bay ."

 This article originally appeared in The New York Times.


And this: 

Donald Trump’s former Sec. Def. Mark Esper: “[Trump] was suggesting that...we should bring in the troops and shoot the protesters.” 

 Q: “The commander-in-chief was suggesting that the U.S. military shoot protesters?” 

 Esper: “Yes, in the streets of our nation’s capital.”


 


Trump would LOVE to be able to EXECUTE those who do not support him:

EVERYTHING TRUMP TOUCHES DIES:

BUT LOOK WHAT THE SIX PRO-MONARCHY SUPREMES JUST DID!

 


Joseph Robinette Biden is unstoppable!






 





From Really American:

"Pre-immunity ruling, Donald Trump already had unchecked criminal impulses. 

Trump to his then-Attorney General Bill Barr: “just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the Republican Congress.” 

Trump to the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger: “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.” 

Trump to a writer, publisher, and others without security clearance: “It is like highly confidential, secret. This is secret information. Look, look at this.” He continued: “See, as president I could have declassified, but now I can't, you know. Isn't that interesting? It's so cool." 

 Three instances where, as President, his actions were self-serving, dishonest, and dangerous. 

And these are the kind of acts SCOTUS just gave a pass to. 

 Post-immunity, the convicted, compulsive criminal would be a clear and present DAILY danger to America."



BREAKING The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that Trump is entitled to immunity for “official acts” as president but “There is no immunity for unofficial acts."



Lawrence Tribe:


"The question before the justices in Trump v. United States: Was Donald Trump immune from prosecution for the crimes the special counsel Jack Smith accused him of committing while president? The answer should have been obvious: No, presidents cannot commit crimes aimed at obstructing the peaceful transfer of power without facing consequences. Indeed, to my knowledge, no court has ever held that a president could be criminally immune under any circumstances. Instead of delivering that judgment many months ago and allowing the trial to proceed, the justices have given Mr. Trump the gift of delay piled upon delay. 

By taking nearly 10 weeks to deliberate before returning the case to the district court — and by sending it back not even for immediate trial but for preliminary determinations that could trigger yet another round of appeals — they have extinguished any realistic hope of getting a verdict in the Jan. 6 case before November. 

American voters will enter ballot booths to choose between Donald Trump and President Biden without knowing whether Mr. Trump is guilty of the crimes with which a grand jury of his fellow citizens charged him. 

[skip]

 Although the opinion features a high-minded disclaimer that the court is not granting Mr. Trump or any future president complete immunity, the practical effect of this decision is presumptive immunity for all future presidents and complete immunity by delay for Mr. Trump.

"Trump didn’t drop out after he was caught making comments about grabbing women by their genitalia. 

He didn’t drop out after openly mocking the vulnerable. 

He didn’t resign after calling our military “losers” and “suckers”. 

 He didn’t resign after he was impeached…twice. 

 He didn’t resign after his criminally negligent mismanagement of the pandemic. 

 He didn’t resign after his failed insurrection. 

 He didn’t drop out after being criminally indicted…four times. 

 He didn’t drop out after being held civilly liable for rape and fraud. 

 He didn’t drop out after being convicted by a jury of 34 felonies. 

 So yeah, tell me more about why Biden should drop out after one bad debate. "

Rick Wilson: For The Debate Tonight

 


Not only for the spin before and after, but for every Trump utterance on stage, remember the Rules of MAGA: 

 Every accusation is a confession. 

 Every denial is a full confession of guilt. 

 Every claim of evil is projection. 

 Every boast of strength is an admission of failure. 

 Every fact is subject to Trump’s sole interpretation. 

 Every law is a conspiracy against Trump. 

 Every anecdote is pure fiction. 

 Every casual cruelty and crazed conspiracy leads deeper into more cruelty and conspiracy. 

 Every word is a lie, every lie is a promise of betrayal. 

 Every person or group Trump claims to stand for, he loathes. 

 Finally, 

Everything Trump Touches Dies.

Economists and CEOs Don't Want Trump





16 Nobel Economists Warn Second Trump term Would Mean One Thing.

(Source-Axios) Joe Biden’s economic agenda is “vastly superior” to Trump’s, the Nobel laureates explained in a letter. Inflation will soar once again if former President Donald Trump wins back the White House, a group of 16 Nobel prize-winning economists have predicted in a letter obtained by Axios. President Joe Biden’s economic agenda is “vastly superior” to that being put forward by presumptive GOP presidential nominee Trump, argued the Nobel prize winners.

A second Trump term would “have a negative impact on the U.S.’s economic standing in the world, and a destabilizing effect on the U.S.’s domestic economy,” and his “fiscally irresponsible budgets” would reignite inflation that has “come down remarkably fast” in recent weeks, they warned.

‘Basically, the entire world makes fun of this man,’ Conway said. ‘In MAGA Land, they don't appreciate what a global, planetary joke he is to the world. They think of Donald Trump as this tough guy who scares everybody. He scares everybody the same way that a five-year-old walking around on a roof holding a bomb might scare. But he's weak and pathetic and stupid.’” --George Conway
