"It's THE LEFT's traditional heroes the ones who fit your description."

Here you are sneaking in an unfair comparison. These people were the heros of Communist parties. But the left is predominantly social democrats. And the social democrats denounced them pretty early. If I follow your footsteps, I would claim Mussolini and the KKK are the traditional heros of the "right"

@Winter: And lets not forget also Pinochet and Franco. :)

@FIGJAM:

Sorry, but you've proven you are not even worth debating.

I have given you sources that fully or mostly disprove your claims. You reject these sources as delusional left-wing propaganda. But... Well, it is repeated from EVERYWHERE - except right-wing media. Libertarians, left wing news papers, right wing news papers and other sources all say you are wrong. I think even Fox News might say you are wrong, but I don't read Fox so have no clue. The ONLY sites that support the bullshit you speak are the right winger sites.

If every news source and fact source out there, right as left, except alt-right media, claim you are wrong... Then you are wrong. It is as simple as that.

So what do you resort to? Name calling and repeating the same lie over and over. We have already established your projected world view is a lie. This tells me you are here to spread an agenda, not debate.

Good day sir, I will ignore your comments henceforth. Not even worth my time. :)

LOL. You guys do realize that FIGJAM is black, don’t you?

@wayne
Not as idiotic as it sounds:

Read the second to last paragraph and look at the picture

It looks like the main charges against Trump will be obstruction of justice and criminal conspiracy with Russia against US.

Per "wertigon" Ekström

Looks like Trump is getting nervous, since he is calling for the witch hunt to end.

Is there really some truth to crooked Trump?

To be fair, though, if crooked Hillary could not be convicted, why would crooked Trump be?

Winter

"To be fair, though, if crooked Hillary could not be convicted, why would crooked Trump be?"

I assume this is sarcasm, but because it has become extremely difficult to identify sarcasm these days, I'll spell it out for unsuspecting readers.

It is called the Rule of Law. Hillary was investigated and cleared of charges. Trump is investigated and not cleared of charges.

We do know Trump and his supporters do not believe in the Rule of Law, but it is still the law of the land (at least, that is what even the GOP claims).

Lima

Obviously, Trump has found out something during last 1-2 weeks and this made him has increased the level of attacks on Mueller and media in matter of days.
I guess that now we need to put the seat belts on and prepare for the ride. This is only the beginning. I would not exclude Trump starting a war (with Iran?) just to increase the level of patriotism in US and get away with treason.

Unblock.....

I’m honestly concerned about you in this moment... what you did and what you said are completely out of character for the man I know.
Getting so attached to an ideal isn’t healthy.
These are the very lines you and I have discussed about crossing with common sense and civility NOT threats and anger.
Yet you deemed it acceptable to say awful things to me because I had an idea??
I’m over it at this point and ready to move on.
Like I said.... I’ll always be here for you. You’ve been a friend and companion when I desperately needed one and great more tears.... and I can actually help in removing some of these emotionally charged moments. Even if I have to act as the sponge by absorbing them.
If I don’t hear from you in a couple of days I’ll know it was a great time getting to know you and let it be. But I’m here Tomi.

Krista Sanders

Ridiculous Tomi.... talk to me like a grown up

Krista Sanders

Also looks like you could use some help with your SEO and CSS settings for mobile...

Wayneborean


Looks like Krista could use a little psychological help.

Sister Resister

Krista and Tomi got in an argument. Krista is still hurting and waiting for Tomi to come back from wherever he went after we had words. But thank you for your concern

Tero

Where was this argument? Twitter? Unless Tomi has deleted comments from this thread (something the regulars know happens every now and then), there are no comments from Krista before this page.
Also, coming here and reading those comments from Krista make me say “ditto” to Wayne.

Jimmy the Jim

Its Jimmy
He tried to making Tomi lost face

Sister Resister

It WAS on Twitter fellas so thanks. I DID have the screenshots of it but have since deleted them. Say what you want about me and my mental health- I’m not the one that lost my shit over Johnny Cash 😑

But in all reality I suppose I cared enough to follow all the way here to Tomi’s blog and post some comments asking him to forgive ME.

So Tomi, if you’re reading this... I still miss you all the time. You were my bestest Twitter buddy and the spat we had was silly in retrospect. Absolutely NOT worth losing a dear friend over.

And I could sure have used the company when my knee blew the rest of the way out. Having surgery tomorrow and thought of you so I’ve returned here to your blog to give you the update about my knee.

Some truly hilarious events have transpired since all of this happened and every time one does I think of you.

You made my days a lot brighter, made my life funnier, and I have not forgotten your words of encouragement about the impact of humor.

You being my friend even for a brief while changed my life and I am grateful for that.

Sending you all the loves from TX

I agree with other commenters that Trump may have health issues, but i disagree with the diagnostic. I think he is simply getting more and more senile. I've watched some of his interviews from when he was younger and he was way more articulate and he actually made sense. I didn't agree with his point of view but he used to argue his position relatively well. Now he rambles complete non-sense, he's a complete moron, the change is so obvious. So maybe he will get forced to resign based on his senile state. GOP will certainly love and support that scenario because their man, Pence, gets to be president. If Trump is impeached on Russia meddling grounds then how can Pence be a legitimate president when he was on a ticket that won the election through Russian interference? Pence benefited directly from Russian interference so new elections should be triggered. That is why deposing Trump for health issues makes more sense for GOP, because then Pence is still legit. So, I can certainly see a deal between Democrats and Republicans where GOP agrees to help depose Trump and replace him with Pence.
On the other hand Russia has been extremely careful with covering its tracks, so I expect that Mueller won't be able to prove Russian interference in court (keep in mind that criminal cases are much harder to win than civil cases). So far Manafort has not caved to pressure and I think he will never cave (maybe out of fear of a little bit of poison? better alive in prison than dead). So Tomi's treason stuff is pure wishful thinking.
As for the idea that Trump being Potus for 2 years and then removed may be better for political discourse I think this would be true only if Trump resigns in disgrace which will never happen.
I haven't read all comments. So i apologize if my post is redundant or obsolete. At some point i 've stopped reading comments as the discussion became a lot less interesting when the racist idiots started spewing uter nonsense.

@cornel

I totally agree. I was wondering why media thinks that Manafort will flip when it is obvious that Manafort has to choose between some nasty Russian poison and American jail. He will choose gladly jail plus that he will get as bonus the attendance to several trials in order not to get too bored in jail.

Obviously Russia has compromised the US electoral system enough to swing the elections. Also Russia has compromised the Republican party and Trump by helping them.

Now the number one goal for US is to hide that US voting system has been compromised by Russia because if people loose trust in voting then is game over for democracy. So I guees that now GOP has to cover that US voting system was compromised by Russia. This pushes them by extension to cover also the Republican party and Trump being compromised by Russia. Democrats have no interest in letting the public know that voting system and Republicans are compromised by Russia. So obviously the war is all about Trump and the way how he will be pushed out.
