Lol, g-man already in spin mode. I don't think Trump will get to keep from showing his taxes.


Trying to turn a thread about the chaos at the DNC convention, chaos you all but assured us would never happen, into a thread about Trump and, now, his taxes.

I think it's pretty obvious who is in spin mode.

Just How United Are the Democrats Tonight?:
  • A group of pro-Bernie convention attendees just chanted “Bernie or jail” in the hallway of the arena. Pro-Bernie, anti-Hillary protesters got into the media tent adjacent to the arena. And there was a fairly well-attended Black Lives Matter/Bernie or Bust rally in downtown Philadelphia Tuesday; signs like “Bernie or Jill, Never Hillary” suggested these activists were not going to fall in line and support Clinton.

Onto the DNC which I'm guessing will be easily a more positive unifying convention than the GOP's.

Angry Sanders supporters shut down streets outside DNC:
  • Bernie Sanders loyalists protested inside and outside the Democratic National Convention site and clashed with police on Tuesday after Hillary Clinton won the party’s presidential nomination.

    Despite Sanders’ calls for them to support Clinton, thousands of activists have taken to the streets during the convention this week to voice support for the liberal Vermont U.S. senator and his progressive agenda.

    Moments after Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party, a large group of Sanders delegates and supporters exited the Philadelphia convention site to hold a sit-in inside a media tent. Some had their mouths taped shut. A few spontaneously sang the chorus of the folk song “This Land is Your Land,” and a banner read “we the people.” They said they were holding a peaceful protest to complain about being shut out by the Democratic Party.

    “This was not a convention. This was a four-day Hillary party. And we weren’t welcome,” said Liz Maratea, a New Jersey delegate at the media tent protest. “We were treated like lepers.”

    In the streets outside, Sanders supporters who had spent the day protesting began facing off with police. Protesters began scaling 8-foot walls blocking off the secure zone around the arena parking lot, and several were detained. An officer sprayed one of the protesters.

    Unmoved by Sanders’ plea for party unity, the Bernie or Bust protesters walked miles in the stifling heat again Tuesday to make their case for him.

Actually they wouldn't be making their case for him. He had a good response that made his support for Clinton clear.

Btw I've been watching and not hearing any booing. Are you hearing any?

Fair play!

Chicago Tribune, 9:23 pm:
  • The protests continued into the night with Sanders supporters and anti-police brutality protesters joining together. They marched in the street outside of the Wells Fargo Center.

    The crowd consisted of an assortment of protesters espousing a variety of causes, but mostly Sanders supporters and other Clinton foes on the left. College student Cory James said he expects the Democratic Party to split over the nomination.

    "I suspect we are witnessing an event that will fundamentally change American politics," said James, of Flint, Michigan.

    Earlier in the day, participants at the rally charged that Sanders was cheated out of the nomination, and they said they weren't swayed by his Monday plea to his supporters to fall in line behind Clinton for the good of the country.

    "He persuaded no one to vote for Hillary," said Greg Gregg, a retired nurse from Salem, Oregon, who intends to cast his ballot in November for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

    Black Men for Bernie founder Bruce Carter said Monday's speeches from Sanders and Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren didn't persuade him to support Clinton.

    "They really agitate people more every time they stand up and do the Hillary Clinton hoo-rah hoo-rah," he said.

    Carter, a Dallas resident, said he doesn't fear a Republican Donald Trump presidency.

    Chris Scully, an engineer from Troy, New York, held a "Jill Before Hill" sign outside City Hall and said he opposes Clinton because of her war record as U.S. secretary of state.

That just like our international trade deals, political leaders in the United States have been fleeced by nations not paying their fair share of their agreed portion of NATO defense costs.

I love the way you constantly front distortions that are outright lies as if they were "facts".

  • from Do Racists have lower IQ's...

    Liberals who bemoan discrimination, intolerance, restraint of Constitutional freedoms, and promotion of hatred toward various abberant minorities, have absolutely no problem with discriminating against, being intolerant of, restricting Constitutional freedoms of, and directing hate-filled scapegoat rhetoric against conservatives.

    EXACTLY what they accuse Republicans/conservatives of doing, is EXACTLY what liberals/Democrats do themselves, to those who oppose their beliefs.

I think the Russian hacking will certainly continue to be a story.


I see....So the Red Menace is back, aye?


Yeah, so NOW the Democrats think Russia is a threat. ;\)



But, seriously, I'm sure this "conspiracy theory" will get a lot of traction with the far left, but ultimately it'll be just a credible as "Reagan and the Ayatollah caused the hostage crisis" and "Bush caused 9/11."

The bottom line here is that the DNC got caught acting unethically (and possibly illegally) and now they're trying to play the distraction game



In addition, Obama is manifestly treasonous. As is Hillary Clinton regarding the Benghazi attack, regarding the preceding negligence in Benghazi despite dozens of repeated pleas for added security by Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi over a 4 month period, and regarding Obama/Hillary leaving U.S. armed forces to die in Beghazi.

And both Obama and Hillary are also manifestly treasonous regarding their communication on Hillary's illegal private e-mail server, that according to FBI director James Comey. was almost certainly hacked by both the Russians and Chinese.

And before those crises, this conversation with Medvedev:
