I’m reminded of the old adage, “Birds of a feather flock together,” especially when I see Donald J. Trump being so cozy with some murderous thugs such as Putin (who Don praised on Russian TV), Kim of North Korea,and the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. 

What is going on? Is he making deals for the good of America or himself? He has this group of folks who call themselves Christian or Evangelicals who seem to believe everything he says. My goodness!

He praises these leaders who have such dark hearts, which when I see Don’s actual policies, makes me wonder about his heart. To me his actions (putting children in cages where some have died) along with his lies and mean and hurtful statements show that he is doing things that are more anti-Christ than showing the love that Christ was known for.

If you call yourself a Christian, how can you support this liar-in-chief? Everything that he does seems to be against all of the teachings that we were taught in Bible school. Maybe some of you just don’t care. Evidently. You’ve got yours.

Putin slams liberal ideas like freedom … are you in Putin’s camp? If so, what does this say about you?

Kim’s camp? Whose side are you guys actually on … America’s or on the side of our enemies?

I ask this ’cause as a Vietnam veteran I’m concerned as to where we are headed.

How many more children have to die before you guys wake up as to the dark path that Don is taking us down?

Perhaps its time for some profound contemplation?

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm starting to think these TRUMP RULES/TRUMP DROOLS letters aren't changing any minds.

President Trump is doing a great job and we are all very proud of him. Shaking hands with world leaders is a good thing and it seems Kim, Putin and China respect our president very much. We are very happy and looking forward to 2020 and another four years of making America great again.

Runt

If Putin respects him so much why is his Russian state TV obsessively bashing Trump's "low energy," "weak" parade with "rusty tanks." They laugh at Trump's claim about "revolutionary war airports" & other historical flubs. "There's your city upon a hill, there's your world leader—and Martians have been defeated." Even our allies mock him...you don't need to look hard or close to see how little he is respected in other countries. However, he gets mucho admiration from dumb downed trump trash.

We all know Trump is an unwitting asset of the Russians. They compromised him with dreams of riches. Trump believes he is a crony of Putin and N.Korea's Kim. Is he dreaming of unlimited access in these countries to develop the Trump empire. Privately they know he's an idiot.

To Branson and his malcontent comrades the phrase “One Nation Under God” holds little meaning. They don’t get it. “We the People” elected Trump as everyone’s President, that’s the way it works. “We the People” took him at his word and elected him to “Make America Great Again” and by God he is doing. He is doing it in spite of roadblocks by those who can’t or won’t see the truth and subversives intent on spreading lies and deceit. Our President, mine and yours, is keeping his campaign promises. What a novel concept. The following are just a few of the unkind terms and ridiculous untruths our dear friend and neighbor has posted on these pages in his quest to spread hatred among his fellow Americans. Per Branson…Trump is a criminal – a liar – fake – crook – thug – vulgarian - creep - sexual pervert - drug addict – Stalinist - pathological liar – propagandist – fascist – scumbag - comic book villain - rabid bug - orange menace – inept – dysfunctional - idiot - capable of evil - ethic less – unprincipled – immoral – disgusting – nefarious (note: nefarious, synonyms include despicable, vile, foul, base, depraved, unholy, ungodly, satanic and evil) – he is demented - behaves bizarrely - want’s to use immigrant children for forced labor - is unfit for office - a threat to national security - he will cause world disaster - he will suspend the elections – he will do away with Administrative Law Judges – he will do away with regulations that keep us safe - he has done away with the free press – he is frantic to overthrow America – he turned to Russia for campaign help - lying communist social media operatives got him elected - conspiracy theories and misinformation got him elected - he sold out the country , Russia and N. Korea are coaching him for reelection – he is Kim Jung-un’s lover - the Whitehouse needs to be fumigated… holy cow Branson. And here’s some of what Branson has said about you and I as supporters of our duly elected President. He says we think Trump should kill immigrants, that we are afraid of Trump, that we demonstrate cult like blindness. And he says we are overzealous… We are overzealous? Now that’s rich!

"i will build a great beautiful wall, and Mexico will pay for it!"

Mike

"i will build a great beautiful wall, and Mexico will pay for it!”----------That’s right Bill. It’s one of the things the voters want, isn’t it? I certainly do. Yes, Trump said he will build the wall and that Mexico Will pay for it. He said it many times and many ways. So what’s your point? It’s being built as we speak, is it not? It’s progressing in spite of dying swamp rat interference and, if I were you, I wouldn’t the farm that Mexico won’t be paying for it one way or another. As we’ve all seen, this President doesn’t fool around with BS! “We The People” will be happy to reelect him… …won’t we Bill?

"i will provide better cheaper healthcare for all"

Pice of cake. Obamacare was a imploding disastere.

I agree that Donald Trump is the president and yes, roadblocks have been thrown up against his desired outcomes. The problem is that when our also legally elect president was Barack Obama the “loyal” opposition did the same thing to stop his legislative agenda from day one. So to get all high and mighty about this topic is a symptom of something deeper happening in the country. We are divided and we will all fall with the “our president is better” dialog to self destruction. Anybody want to guess who benefits from this?

TwoToeJoe

I know who benefited from Obamacare and who lost. It certainly did not deliver what was promised and ended up exposing a mass of lies and deceit. I know who benefits from open borders and who loses. It certainly causes problems with depreciated wages and places a burden on taxpayer resources. I know who benefits from socialism and who loses. It is really sad that Medicare is having so many problems and rapidly going downhill and yet enlightened politicians are pushing the Medicare for all agenda. Anyone want to guess who is creating the increasing expressions of unwarranted criticism, blind bias, arrogance and hatred for those they oppose? George Orwell once said, “In our age there is no such thing as keeping out of politics. All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia” . Just recently I discovered that even Joe Biden has been exposed as a racist and sexual deviant. How times are changing.

horsehouse

More finger pointing and anger without rational solutions, just more finger pointing and schizophrenia that is of no help.

Runt

The article was not about Obamacare, the Clinton's or Biden. The same old tired sophistry from the usual character. It was about “Birds of a feather flock together,” and the hypocrisy of self-proclaimed Christians who support Trump regardless of his immorality and lack of family values. Jeffrey Epstein, for example: Back in 2010, Epstein admitted to “socializing” with Trump, but when a lawyer representing an under-aged victim of Epstein’s asked if he has “ever socialized with Donald Trump in the presence of females under the age of 18,” Epstein curiously pled the Fifth. Q: Have you ever had a personal relationship with Donald Trump? A. What do you mean by "personal relationship," sir? Q. Have you socialized with him? A. Yes, sir. Q. Yes? A. Yes, sir. Q. Have you ever socialized with Donald Trump in the presence of females under the age of 18? A: Though I'd like to answer that question, at least today I'm going to have to assert my Fifth, Sixth, and 14th Amendment rights, sir. This tells mucho about Trump: "Terrific guy," Trump told New York Magazine in 2002 about Epstein. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side." Trump was also in the USA Miss Teen pageant dressing room gawking at teen girls, and bragged about it to Howard Stern, in a recorded interview. Age does not really matter to him because he has bragged about assaulting women by grabbing them. America has and always will be great-Make America Moral Again.

bill jenkins

very good runt! along those same lines the letter makes reference to christianity, the bible etc. in that regard what do you think Jesus would say if he visited our southern border?

TwoToeJoe

Jesus would say obey man's law and God's law Bill. Any problems? I thought this was a discussion between usual cast of characters. The article was about and I shall quote “ birds of a feather flock together ”, " making deals for the good of America ", " lies, mean and hurtful statements " and the ever so subjective "whose side are you guys actually on " . I realize the mere mention of Obama, Clinton, and Biden brings much shame, hypocrisy and many more hurtful things best forgotten by the liberal left when put into prospective. They do say birds of the feather flock together. Perhaps I would suggest writing letters on a closed forum if the need for limited response requires it. Now I guess we can respond to the Jeffery Epstein topic since it was brought up by someone claiming the adage of not fair. A list of Epstein’s contacts compiled by his girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell listed access information for the Queen of England, Prince Andrew, the current King of Saudi Arabia, former President Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, rock stars at the Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson , fashion gurus, media moguls, and financiers at the Rothschild and Rockefeller centers, among dozens of wealthy powerful contacts. Bill Clinton was aboard the infamous Lolita Express owned by the billionaire pedophile at least 26 times. Evidently Jeffrey was a stand up guy until the 2008 civil rights case was filed. Go figure!

Mike

If you want to know what Jesus would say, Bill, you can ask him yourself. He would like that. He's following this thread... And he's been biting his lip.

bill jenkins

let me see: god is omnipotent and benevolent, all christians a think agree agree on that. so how would a benevolent god allow man to make a law that enables child abuse?

CookieG

Probably the same God that allows laws to enable infanticide. Yet many christians support abortion. The false child abuse claims regarding border security is a rampant pseudo fact that liberals depend on to push the open border ideology similar to the false claims of forcing illegal immigrants to drink water from toilets. There is no law that enables child abuse. Good try!

bill jenkins

trump defense number 1 DENY.

CookieG

Excellent choice Bill. Must be the pattern you stated when voicing concerns about changing the subject and ignoring it. I would change the subject also when caught in a pickle. Just go ahead and admit you support open borders just like all the other liberals running in the primaries.

TwoToeJoe

The organizers first job is to create the issues or problems, and organizations must be based on many issues. The organizer must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. . . . An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent. Saul Alinsky

Mike

Benevolent, who told you that Bill? It’s all in the book but don’t you recon if God is “benevolent” he wouldn’t have created... you know where?

Mike

Wouldn’t the term benevolent God be a liberal oxymoron?

Mike

lol,btw.

bill jenkins

Mr. Bost's effort to appeal to reason on a moral basis is commendable. maybe some minds were changed, who knows? actually it's, as a practical matter, immaterial. there is no way the republican nominee will cary California.

Branson Hunter

The chickens come home to roost. Today Florida businessman George Houraney told the New York Times that the president’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein involved at least one “calendar girl” party at Mar-a-Lago plus HIM AND EPSTEIN” AND “28 GIRLS”: FLORIDA MAN DROPS A DIME ON TRUMP. Since Kellyanne Conway is very busy attempting to defend the indefensible, maybe Mike can step in for her and undue the damage. ://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/07/trump-and-epstein-and-28-girls-new-york-times Since

Mike

Well OK Branson, I read said article in Vanity Fair and in the New York Times as well. There is not an accusation in it that Trump needs to defend. Maybe you can spin one up but all I saw was typical tabloid type innuendo and rumor mongering about the rich and famous. Your time would be better spent researching the deep state stuff, friend. I think it would be an eye opening experience for you.

TwoToeJoe

Well if it isn't the last straw to break the camels back. Even by anyone's standards "TWENTYEIGHT CALENDAR GIRLS" shared between Donald J. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein is just to much to handle. If we had known about this atrocity back in 1992 things would have been much different in the 2016 election. A dozen or so calendar girls would have been acceptable but we are talking about "TWENTYEIGHT CALENDAR GIRLS" . Even Jesus himself could not forgive them for the sins committed. Possibly if it could not be labeled as a sin it does seem to violate every rule in the gentleman's code of ethic's and almost borders on criminality. The damage caused by this new revelation is indefensible. We have no choice now but to cast our votes towards those who embrace Marxism, open borders, and Medicare for all.

Branson Hunter

[crying] Mike, how many of us have nearly two dozen women accusing us violent rape, groping, sexual predation and/or sexual assault? Can you defending your president on this? Are all those women simple liars? This is about the soul of America, and the integrity of the Office of the Presidency. Can you add something that benefits readers?

Branson Hunter

Huh? Today the Trump organization cancels golf event event with stripper caddies, reports ABC & The ASSOCIATED PRESS. What decent parent would want this dirty old man around their daughter? Just ask Billy Bush... .

Branson Hunter

Okay, so some good Americans are now using Marxism as a defense of this president sexual predation as alleged by nearly two dozen women. Marxism is dead. However, what is very America is socialist democracy. This is very beneficial to corporations that were on the receiving end of a BILLION bailout not long ago. More recently, the 1 percent get another TRILLION of tax cuts. This is socialism. Enough of the communist threat... that is silly and thrown out in desperation. I SAY TO ALL GOOD AMERICANS -- Defend your president. I just have not seen in the DT or HDT comments.

Branson Hunter

Opps... That is a TRILLION (not a billion). Therefore, two trillion dollar of America's Democratic Socialist money going to millionaires and billionaires, very rich senators and corporations. The communist scare is old hat. Joseph R. McCarthy and his hate-filled propaganda machine.

Branson Hunter

I don't think dropping stink bombs in here as a pretext to avoid discussing the Office of the Presidency is working. How many in here think journalists anda free press are enemies of the people? To recap, two dozen women have come forward with disturbing stories of violent rape, sexual predation, sexual assault and aggressive holding a woman while she is rapped. These are not calendar girls, these are real people: sisters, mothers, daughters. It's beyond a reasonable doubt that this president is a vulgar sexual predator, and self-serving buffon.

TwoToeJoe

Branson, the definition of Marxism is the theory and practice of socialism. Socialism is a stage of society in Marxist theory that is transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by the perception of unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done. What is very American and has been for over 200 years is capitalism. Democratic socialism is just another fancy word for socialism. Socialism is great for underachievers and freeloaders. Capitalism just does not work for underachievers and freeloaders. Underachievers and freeloaders love those who provide the goods and services for them by the working class. Marxism makes everyone equal so those who succeed in life will have to redistribute earnings to support those who just want to exist to stay equal. The free press is not the enemy of the people. The American free press has degenerated into a slanderous profession that has squandered the faith and trust of the American public through its own abandonment of reportorial integrity and objective journalism. For over two years we have been duped by the free press and their supposedly objective journalist that Donald Trump was Putin's right hand stooge in charge of U.S. operations in the white house. These journalist who has reported and kept repeating these allegations in the news media as facts are the enemy of the people. Donald J. Trump has never been charged nor convicted of rape. He has been personally sued of sexual harassment once or twice in civil court but yet so far he has prevailed. Yet the press and you Branson keep repeating the same innuendos and presenting the allegations as fact. Most people are getting fed up with the repetitive spurious slander perpetuated endlessly by journalist and the media since Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy and which continues to this day. The "stink bombs" you mention Branson is falsely repeating the stories of "violent rape, sexual predation, sexual assault and aggressive holding a woman while she is raped". The real person convicted for a sexual harassment lawsuit that exposed lying under oath and obstruction of justice was Bill Clinton from charges filed by Paula Jones. Fortunately the real convicted sexual predator and disgrace to the office of the White House did not return with Hillary to sully the office. By the way those were real calendar girls not simply sisters, mothers and daughters. If I left anything out let me know!

Branson Hunter

Your definition of Marxism is not close. Marx·ism: the political and economic theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, later developed by their followers to form the basis for the theory and practice of communism. Why are you bringing this up?

Branson Hunter

No, Two Toes, Branson is not "falsely" repeating the stories of "violent rape, sexual predation, sexual assault and aggressive holding a woman while she is raped". He is reading the news as alleged by almost two-dozen women (mothers, sisters, daughters). You have absolutely no standing to say all these women are liars. Beyond a reasonable doubt all these women are not liars. Forget me... I am unimportant in terms of national politics and washington leaders. DEFEND YOUR PRESIDENT TT. Can you do it?

Branson Hunter

Seriously, TT, you're bring up sleazy Bill Clinton? We are discussing sleazy white supremacist Donald Trump. A president that has the nearly two-dozen women who have come forward with allegations of sexual abuse, rape and forcible assault. Eveyingle-day there are new allegation of corruption from this president. America is not only the laughing stalk of the world, more and more our country is thought of as being toxic as a result of the American Tragedy unfolding on a daily basis in the White House.

TwoToeJoe

The definition of "Marxism" according to Merriam Webster is and I shall quote: "the political, economic, and social principles and policies advocated by Marx . Especially : a theory and practice of socialism including the labor theory of value, dialectical materialism, the class struggle, and dictatorship of the proletariat until the establishment of a classless society." Definition of "allegation" according to Merriam Webster: "a claim or assertion that someone has done something illegal or wrong, typically one made without proof". Anyone can make an "allegation". For example I could allege that your definition of "Marxism" is false. But if I include Merriam Webster's definition of "Marxism" as proof of my assertion that "Marxism" is the "practice of socialism" who would be correct and who would be classified as being untruthful? The definition of "innuendos" is "an allusive or oblique remark or hint, typically a suggestive or disparaging one". Repeating stories of "violent rape, sexual predation, sexual assault and aggressive holding a woman while she is raped" regarding Donald Trump is complete innuendo and not based upon fact. Usually people accused of rape, sexual predation, and sexual assaults are investigated, charged, and adjudicated in our courts of law that separates the facts from fiction such as happened to Sleazy Bill Clinton. Donald Trump allegedly was a planted Russian agent and accused of collusion with Putin to win the election of 2016 by many credible sources and after four complete investigations and it turned out all the accusers of that innuendo turned out to be liars. One more time may do the trick but I doubt it. "Sleazy white supremacist?" Even Joe Biden gets accused of that and probably every white person in present day politics. "Every single-day there are new allegations of corruption from this president"? I think they are still investigating the corruption of the last administration and word has it they are singing like canaries and wont be completed until much later than the May or June stated completion. America used to be the " laughing stalk of the world" when previous administrations shipped American jobs overseas and paid billions to the Iranian regime. Even Rocketman used to shoot missiles to intimidate and terrorize us. The list of successes of our President is probably to long to list but if you need a refresher I could provide more detailed list. I would suggest working on some credibility Branson instead of hurling baseless innuendos!

Mike

So don’t the swamp rats realize they lost the election because about half the Democratic Party couldn’t stomach the Benghazi lies and the blatant obstruction of justice when their nominee ILLEGALLY destroyed tens of thousands of incriminating documents, and wasn’t held accountable? ----- “WHAT, AT THIS POINT, DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?” she asked about her handling of the Benghazi attack. ----- It made all the difference because now we have a Republican in office that has proven to be the best thing for America since sliced bread and voters in neither party are interested in trying to fix something that ain’t broke. If a “chicken in every pot” socialism is all the Democratic Party offers in 2020 they will surly lose!

Branson Hunter

Outstanding Mike. You missed the issue as usual. I find it amusing that a few in here haven't the stomach to actually discuss the salient bordor issues, the lasting impact on America legacy, and the imprisonments of children while separation them from family or parents, with absolutely no means of reuniting these traumatized little ones and older minors. I expect nothing from nothing. If you have zero to offer. YOu are the problem.

Mike

So how would you FIX the situation at the boarder, Branson/anyone?

Branson Hunter

Mike what do you mean by "fix" the situation? If it doesn't include modernizing the system so it actually works, there is no "fix". If it means procedural due process for citizens only while persons here undocumented have none, that is not a fix. If it means punishing children and everyone else with detention chain link cages, no fix there. We need to treat immigrants and refugees with the dignity and comfort to international law. We need to demonstrate empathy. You, me, the house and senate have to fix the gap between hating the left or right, and solve these problems. We need congress to work together and compromise.

Mike

Forget Congress. Forget compromise. Forget your little dance around the question and forget all the complaining. By the imagined authority presumed by me I hereby grant and bestow upon Branson Q. Hunter complete carte blanche to fix the freaking boarder any way he want's. So now, will the Bigblokincharge tell us his goal and how he will achieve it?

Branson Hunter
