  • Not too late to vote for Beth.

    -- Posted by fair share on Thu, Aug 2, 2018, at 12:56 PM
  • It is tempting to vote for her. Why do you think she can beat the Democratic choice?

    -- Posted by stevemills on Thu, Aug 2, 2018, at 2:53 PM
  • I think we are still a red state and whoever wins the Republican primary will end up being governor. But I'm pretty sure it won't be Beth, even tho she was the best for Tennessee.

    -- Posted by fair share on Thu, Aug 2, 2018, at 7:06 PM
  • I would hope she will stay active in some office. She seems like one of the few ďpoliticiansĒ I might trust.

    -- Posted by stevemills on Thu, Aug 2, 2018, at 7:23 PM
  • Yeah. Can't figure her giving up the speakership to run for governor and then not really running. Didn't see hardly any ads for her. Guess she was out moneyed. Would have been nice having her in the House leading the resistance to the governor since either way, looks like it will be a dem.😊

  • Why do you say that fair share? You think Dean has that much appeal?

    If it was just Nashville I might agree but statewide it could be a toss up. Either way, I feel comfortable with both.

    -- Posted by stevemills on Fri, Aug 3, 2018, at 10:31 AM
  • No, I don't think Dean has widespread appeal outside of Nashville but he will get the dem votes. My comment was a snarky reference to Lee helping elect Barry, et al. I'll for sure be voting for him anyway.

    -- Posted by fair share on Fri, Aug 3, 2018, at 10:46 PM
  • Since Diane Black is out of a job,maybe Trump can hire her to build that wall she talked about so much. Dumpty's influence did not get her many votes,she did not even come in 2nd place.One news station said they think crossover voting hurt her also.Hahahaha

    -- Posted by lets be real on Sat, Aug 4, 2018, at 5:02 PM
  • To my knowledge Trump never endorsed her but her negative campaigning turned me away completely.

    -- Posted by stevemills on Sat, Aug 4, 2018, at 8:51 PM
  • Yeah, when Trump had his Nashville rally, he endorsed Blackburn but stayed out of the guvnors primary.

  • I am glad Bill won. But, I think the election process is a little tainted by the increased number of candidates. The point being; Bill won, but with less than 50% of the vote. It would seem to me a run-off between the 2 top contenders would be in order if no one received more than 50% of the vote.

    Similarly, I wanted Lamar Alexander out a few years ago. But, he also won with less than 50% of the vote.

    This kind of set-up can hand the election to the wrong candidate by dividing the electorate.

    I guess the people are unwilling to put out the extra effort to weed out the candidates and narrow the field to two?

    -- Posted by Liveforlight on Sun, Aug 5, 2018, at 5:34 AM
  • No doubt the vote was diluted because of the number of qualified candidates but you comment made me think what would be involved if we has run-off elections Here are some thoughts:

    Who would pat for the administration of it? The respective party? The people at large shouldn't.

    It would dilute the time spent for campaigning against the final election and use up precious funds.

    Would the turnout be strong for this? If not, the results could be skewed the wrong way.

    Who would get to vote, only those who declared that party affiliation? Those records aren't kept by voter, are they?

    Just a few thoughts

    -- Posted by stevemills on Sun, Aug 5, 2018, at 12:47 PM
  • All valid points Steve. All those points are already applicable to the election process. I don't see how or why those particular points would be any different for a run off. The only issue I can see is people have just deemed it not worthwhile, or possibly, the political system wants to keep this as a way to manipulate the election. Perhaps a type of electoral college run off?

  • Get a cup O' Coffee because you are gonna need it.

    On the lighter side;

    Back in 2007 God picked Donald Trump to be the next President for the next 8 years. This was 9 years before Russia tried to interfere with our 2016 Election.

    By the way, Putin didn't interfere with the election he just exposed the corruption of the DNC and Hillary Clinton's rigging of the election against Bernie and attempt against D Trump.

    Putin actually helped the American people from voting for Crooked Hillary. We should be thanking Putin, not condemning him. Althou all the glory goes to God for the 2016 election.

    God choose Trump because we didn't need any more politicians. We needed a Business man who knew how to make and break contracts and deal with worldly negotiations. A man who could handle the leaders of the other countries and not back down from them.

    God choose the man who has a good heart and a ruling hand. He also mentioned the only man who would be able to build a wall around God's country.

    God went on to say that we should not fear North Korea, Iran, Syria, China nor Russia. He said I control what happens on this world.

    God continued to say He was going to bring the people together under Trump and that there would be Miracles performed in America like never before, including raising the dead. If you have any thing wrong with you, he wants you to pray to him for healing because now is the time to be healed.

    It all sounds good, but God also said, Your worst enemy are the people who live inside America. God will be dealing with them and giving President Trump the power and Authority that he needs to do God's will which is - "Make America Great Again" and to "Bring the Nation back under God"!

    In 2014, before the Trump election started, God was heard saying the people would be saying "Impeach", but that would not happen. Trump will remain in office for 8 years.

    After hearing this, I don't have any reason to go to the polls to vote. It is already rigged in Trumps favor by none other than God!

    I wonder how our corrupt Intell and DOJ will deal with that?

    These are not all my words, but the words of several prophets.

  • Sui, you need to get out and vote the midterm and 2020. Your idea of just sitting back and letting God do it all reminds me of a story the preacher tells. A flood is occurring and a guy refuses to evacuate when the order comes. He says God will save him. Over the next few hours, 5 people stop by with rafts and boats imploring him to hop on. He refuses, saying God will save him. Finally he is on the roof with the water nippingat his heels. Now he starts worrying and says "God, why don't you come save me?" God's reply: "Why bother? I've tried 5 times already and you keep refusing". Moral of the story: get off your a$$ and vote.

    On a lighter note, God reminded us again that when the stuff gets real, it is nice to have a good guy with a gun. I just love how that drives the heathen left bat-stuff crazy.

  • I just throw that in to see if anyone was reading my comment, however God doesn't need my vote to do what he has planned back in 2017.

    -- Posted by sui on Mon, Aug 6, 2018, at 12:28 PM
  • Sui do you read the Bible? In the Bible God said unless you repent you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Trump's own words " I never have to ask for forgiveness".

    -- Posted by lets be real on Tue, Aug 7, 2018, at 12:47 PM
  • Unreal, do you read the Bible? From time to time you have quoted verses about helping the poor in your defense of the government taking from the makers and giving to the takers. Problem is, they all have been addressed to individuals, not governments. Could you please site me just 1 verse where God/Jesus/anyone tells us the government should be doing this instead of individuals? I hope you realize that you get zero credit upstairs for the care and feeding of the less fortunate that is perpetrated by the government. What they do with their money after they take it from you is their business. You only get credit for helping others if you do it with your own money (or sweat/labor).

    -- Posted by fair share on Tue, Aug 7, 2018, at 6:49 PM
  • And YOU know he was talking about forgiveness from GOD?

    What has Trump done that he has to be forgiven for?

    Did you not read the rest of your Bible?

    If Trump needs to ask for forgiveness, don't you think God can bring Trump down to his knees? Many rich and powerful men have been brought down to their knees when God wanted to. Did you not read Pauls account of sins vs the law? There are a lot of parameters that go with reading the bible.

    I hear people who confess to be Christians, including Preachers etc., say, "If it is God's will", "if that is what God wills", "if that is what God wants", "it's whatever God wants". To them I say, you have not learned what you read!

    And again I pulled a fast one. I don't vote. I have told everyone that your vote doesn't count in the election for the President. It is all done for you. If it wasn't, Hillary would have won the election.

    Look at the hundreds of corrupt people in the DNC, State Department, President O's Admin, FBI, Intelligence Agencies and the DOJ trying to rig the election in Hillary"s favor, then trying to get something against Trump in order to impeach him when they failed miserably.

    If God had not put Trump in Office, Trump or any man for that fact, would have been impeached by now with all the corrupt investigations and lies. God isn't allowing the devils to take Trump out and all who are speaking out against him are speaking out against God as well.

    The enemy within our own borders are committing crimes everyday while trying to remove Trump from Office.

    All the evil and hatred towards Trump is like water running off a duck's back. It just doesn't stop Trump at all. He just fires back at them and they can't take it.

    The lying news media still doesn't understand why Trump calls them Fake News.

    I have calmed down somewhat because I believe Trump was chosen to be our leader and have seen the good things that he has done. God is blessing our country today, but can't say he will bless those who are divided against our country.

  • Now sui,

    I just canít see God choosing mr. Trump as our leader...seems like to me a man that blatantly lies that much (and his count is past 4000 now publicly) might have had the devil place him there and allowed him to deceive many!...and thatís just the lies,Iím not counting the prositutes or the playboy bunnies he cheated with....the fruit he seems to have,...well, you just donít get apples from an orange tree God having all knowledge and all I canít see it...but who am I...believe what thou wilt!

    I actually think everything being said by him at present is diversion and deflection to hide his sins...it will all change soon...I think Mueller is squeezing the grip! Come November it will all get changed back to a Democratic rule anyhow, simply because we need something on tv besides Trump jokes!...just saying!

    -- Posted by chefgrape on Tue, Aug 7, 2018, at 10:43 PM
  • 4,000 lies? Wow, chefgrape, sounds like you are referencing the bovine scatology (🐃) of the Washington Compost "fact checking" page. Or some other equally disreputable source. Who cares how many women he's slept with? That is between him, his wife, his girlfriends and God. We didn't elect him to be our pastor. We elected him to deliver us from 8 years of the plague. And he is delivering better than anyone could have hoped for, which is even more remarkable when you take into account 99.9% of the dummerats and a majority of the repuklicans have been obstructing/resisting like toddlers throwing a hissy fit. If Mueller ever does get around to charging anyone with anything to do with Russia, it will be shillery. She is the only candidate that had illegal relations with the commies. But don't hold your breath for that to happen. Mueller is gonna drag this out as long as he possibly can hoping to get someone to compose a fake story about Trump. But don't hold your breath for that either. On the brighter side, I have a non-Trump joke of the day for you:

    hillary clinton, bernie sanders, and alexandria ocasio-cortez walk into a bar. The bartender says "Somebody's got to pay". 😂🤣😂🤣😂 What makes that so funny is how it is such a sad commentary on how the left has gotten so mucked up lately.

  • fair share,

    It donít take a fact checker to see whatís going on itís right in front of us!...nothing is getting done up on the hill and we have a president that takes to Twitter 54 times a weekend...I just canít seem to think thatís very presidential at the least...none of them are productive, either party! All this administration wants to do is undo anything the last president fixed. Itís like we are moving backwards in time!

    I just donít understand how one can justify Trump especially ordained by God!...he reminds me of wannabe mafia boss gone wrong! And thatís just for starters!..of course we all have our sins, Hillary wasnít exempt either!...It doesnít take me much brain power to really see through that mess. I just canít accept voting for an individual on the basis of Iím a Christian so Iím a republican and not seeing the basic things that guy stood for and now they really have their hands full!

    Democrats are starting to step up the vote...it will all change soon the way I see it, but thatís me! I just wonít vote for anyone that donít hold to American values first and definitely not because my belief is in God therefore Iím republican! I will however vote and most likely democratic.....Iím all for preserving the earth and progression instead of going backwards...

  • Well, chefgrape, it sounds like you've swallowed the libtard left's hogwash hook, line, and sinker. Either you don't care or haven't yet figured out that they have mis-defined the word "progressive". You apparently think it means progress toward the betterment of mankind. And that's what they want you to think. What they really mean is progress down the slope to the destruction of mankind. A simple look at the last century and a half clearly shows how "progressivism", whether you want to label it democrat party, socialism,communism, nazism, or whatever, has led to the suffering and death of hundred of millions of people. But feel free to keep supporting the downfall of the country and the world. On a brighter note, since unreal seems to have slacked off on sharing a joke of the day, here is another, again, Trump free.

    Q: How are Putin and hillary different?

    A: Putin can win an election rigged in his favor!

    -- Posted by fair share on Wed, Aug 8, 2018, at 1:27 PM
  • chefgrape;

    Now is a good time for everyone to get your coffee if you intend to read this!

    "nothing is getting done on the hill and we have a president that takes to Twitter 54 times a weekend...I just canít seem to think thatís very presidential at the least...none of them are productive, either party! All this administration wants to do is undo anything the last president fixed. Itís like we are moving backwards in time!"

    There you go! You just explained what is going on in America! Obama divided our people, even the dems and the rep so that they won't agree on anything. Did Trump do that, NO! It was Obama! Obama divided the people then welcomed thousand of illegal aliens into our country with the promise of amnesty if they could get inside our borders so many feet before he left office.

    Just look at his Presidential Library with his legacies. What Library? His legacy is all online, not in his library that isn't built yet, which will be in Chicago where his people are killing innocent children in drive by shootings every week.

    Heck, they are even trying to make that an Obama legacy by saying having his information Online, the whole world can read all his documents for the first time because no other president did that. Everyone had to visit the Library to read their documents. I think maybe they forgot about hacker stealing information and corrupting files. Even Hillary knows how that can happen, LOL!

    You say Obama saved the world and made it a better place to live in, but in reality he couldn't even help his home town Chicago. One of Obama's biggest lies was Obamacare. It was fraudulent from the beginning. He lied about everything about Obamacare. People lost their insurance because of Obamacare. Everyone was forced to buy insurance they didn't need and it still failed. It's like Trump shooting a horse with a broken leg. Trump did everyone a favor by killing it. Actually, it destroyed itself because it wasn't making any money to run itself.

    His biggest lie was Hillary was the perfect person to be the president. Hell, she couldn't even run a campaign yet a lone the country.

    Nothing is getting done on the hill or anywhere actually. Every time Trump tried to help the American people some judge would bring charges against him deporting criminals and people who were here illegally. He had Ice arrest and deport illegal aliens who were breaking our laws and a judge stopped that. The tried to prevent certain people who might be terrorists from coming into our country until they were vetted. A judge stopped that. Trump is trying to build the wall and the people are all up in arms and then get angry when American/terrorists go on a killing spree. Trump tried to make the states work with the feds with the immigration problems or get their federal aid cut. A judge stopped that. Trump tried to shut down the Santuary Cities that are protecting the illegal aliens and the people love them more than their safety, then want Trump to protect them.

    Look at CA. They welcome them in then have to let them live on their sidewalks and streets. They have tents all over downtown CA. They have just made their State a ****hole State. They can't feed them, the can't give them work and they dame sure aren't collecting any Tax from them. These people are your equal. They are recognized as being part of the sovereignty of These united States of America, yet your black people don't have this same right. They are slaves to the federal and State governments because of the 14th Amendment.

    Obama made up regulations to prevent businesses from getting started and growing. And even shutting down businesses. Then said it was because of "HIM" that businesses existed, because he built the roads to their businesses. Boy was that dumb. The same people that tried to put Hillary Clinton in Office is the same people who put Obama in Office to do certain things. He even failed them as well as the people.

    Obama destroyed this country with his treason. So it would take a very special person to make America great again. Who better than God to battle all the democrats who are against America being Great Again and wanted a Socialist America where the government would be the Dictator over everyone. You idiots think Trump is like a Dictator and can't stand him. He has done more to put the control and rights back into the hands of the people and they are so use to having the government tell them how to live, that Trump scares them because now THEY have to decide what to do and how to protect themselves.

    Why do we have to think about those things. We are suppose to turn our lives over to God. The people are putting all their love into illegal aliens and not into their neighbors who need the love and the help now and then.

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot about the Tweets! Trump found out early in his campaign that the News Media was against him and would make up a lie or publish a lie about him just to make news and discourage Trump from winning. That would work for the average person but not Trump. He didn't get were he is by listening to what people thought about him. I firmly believe God put Trump in Office because God knew things about Trump that we don't. God does miracles with the biggest sinners, he turns sick people into healthy people, poor people into wealthy people and will take a wealthy man and make him flat broke.

    So all those lies run off Trumps back like water on a duck's back You can't say that about Hillary nor Obama. When Trump said he was going to do away with the news briefings the media lost their minds. They knew they wouldn't be able to change Trumps stories into lies.

    However Trump did something smart that no other president ever thought about.Tweeting.

    Trump uses twitter to inform the whole world whatever he wants them to know and can call out any news media that changes his tweets, plus hit the scandrals instantly if they say something he doesn't like.

    I get a kick out of some f the things he tweets about doing. He wants the whole to think he is going to do one thing by tricking them with his tweet because everyone believes that is what the crazy man is going to do or thinking about doing. Then, he does the opposite! The idiots tell the world that Trump had to walk back a lie. It was a deliberate strategy to confusion his opponents. People do it all the time but when Trump does it it is a lie and trump doesn't know what he's doing. Trump kept us out of going to war with NO KO and has kept things calm between Russia and the USA, and we don't hear much out of ISIS today even thou they do still exist and trying to regroup in Iraq. In our country we have a separation of State and Church, but then we have the Separation of Powers too but that doesn't stop the swamp from doing whatever they want to.

    I am not sure, but I don't think that you are saying that all Christians are Republicans! That would mean the democrats are all atheists and I don't think that would set well with the democrats. That's like saying Trumps people are deplorables.

    Since you brought it up, just what does Trump stand for in your mind? And don't just say the things that some MSNBC host said. Tell me in your own words what Trump stands for if you can see thru all this mess.

    What is all this backwards talk you come up with. That is what the Democrats came out with when Trump was running for Office. The Vice Pres at the time, you remember him, Joe Biden, said "Trump wants to put yous back in chains" so the blacks would vote for him.

    Trump has help the Blacks more than that other guy, who was it, oh, President Obama. trump brought jobs "back" to America (that was a good thing to bring back wasn't it?) making jobs available and put them "back" (there's that 4 letter word again) to work! Where's the Chains?

    Now, since you are a smart chef, how in God's name are you going to preserve the earth, and progress at the same time without going, Yup, you said it, going "back" wards to before it was all contaminated? If you undone all that pollution, wouldn't you be "Making America Great Again" by bringing all that pollution "Back" to where it was years ago?

    Isn't that what Trump is really doing?

    Taking us "back" to when we had jobs,

    -- Posted by sui on Wed, Aug 8, 2018, at 2:11 PM
  • Good Grief, They cut my #1 Best Seller in the middle of a sentence. What I was saying was...

    Taking us "back" to when we had jobs, "Back" to when we were living better and healthier lives, "Back" to the times when we were telling everyone they are Brain Dead, "back" to the times when people helped their neighbors, "Back" to the time when you could go out and enjoy the evening out without fearing some nut shooting our while you eat dinner and watch a movie or have a drink with friends and "Back" to the times when the churches had christians in them instead of terrorists. "Back" to when the police were here to help and protect peole not get shot by black lives matter members. "Back" to when you could say what was on your mind and your beliefs without an antifascist trying to prevent you from talking.

    These were the GOOD OLD "BACK" Days that made America Great "BACK THEN"!

    Where are those Days TODAY? The're gone by the Division that Obama laid on America. Obama was racist and pushed racism against the white, so it would bleed over into the Next President's Term. And it worked! With the help of the Democatic leaders (which by the way do not like the U.S. Constitution) kept pushing Racism and Hate Speech into the Republican champaigns and now in our everyday walk of life. To get rid of all the Racism and Hate Speech, we only need to go "Back" 9 or 10 years!

    -- Posted by stevemills on Wed, Aug 8, 2018, at 3:38 PM
  • I think your right Steve...

    Sui,

    I never said I like Obama, actually when he was in office Congress didnít get anything done either....itís mostly politicians period that Iím disgruntled over! They all lie and promise the moon then deliver nothing...I have also had about all the religiosity I can handle as well...those that have a resemblance of goodness then self gets in the way. I would not necessarily be referring to those who are hypocritical either but there seems to be those who profess a savior but words and actions donít line up. At times in conversation with folks like this my discernment kicks in and itís like you feel their spirit. They speak a Jesus then cuss like a sailor or a grandiose exaggerated ego comes shining through, then feel its commonplace with no conviction. Itís that type I see in almost all these politicians!....Trump is no exception!

    It isnít a party line, democratic, or republican issue itís the person..I donít like liars or thieves for that matter it changes my love for them to a simple passive tolerant mindset. Trump puts his persona in your face then rubs it in, I experienced a week working for Mar Lago when I was in south Florida before walking out in discuss, the whole club dripped of ego from the top down. I was lucky to get paid!

    You could say I have more of a people issue then a political one, and it usually stems from their spirit rubbing me the wrong way right up front. People have a tendency to live in words what they think they are, and others see their true colors in their actions and between the lines of what comes out of their mouth! The sad part is when you see them stuck in their delusions and itís obvious! Here again Iím sure itís just me trying to live in my own perceived reality....I sometimes have to bring my own feet back to earth, I get caught up in the moments and forget Iím a reasoning animal instead of an unreasonable one! Just saying! 😎

  • The only thing holding up Muellers investigation is Humpty Dumpty.He said he was willing to testify under oath,opps another lie.It is bad when your own lawyers are afraid for you to talk to a prosecutor for fear of perjury.They are telling America that he can not tell the truth since that is the only way you can perjure yourself.When you hang with crooks you are a crook.No other president has had this many indictments and guilty pleas from top cabinet members after only one year in office.Only Trump sheep believe that everyone in his cabinet had secret meetings with Russia and he never knew.Why did they lie about these meetings under oath if they were legit.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Thu, Aug 9, 2018, at 2:07 PM
  • lets be real, haven't you every watches a court hearing at all? Those prosecuting Attorneys will ask you all kinds of questions that can't be answered with a simple yes or no because there are certain circumstances to them. If you answer with a yes, they will twist that around to men you are guilty r something. If you answer with a no, they will prosecute you for lying in court which is perjury. So the best way to protect yourself is to not answer the questions. If that makes you a liar, then Hillary should be sitting in prison for perjury.

    trumps lawyers know this and we have all seen how Muler is trying to bring down Trump and everyone associated with him. He wants anything that will give him more time to investigate something else that doesn't have anything to do with collusion between Russia and Trump. The only collusion was between Hillary and Russia when she invited Putin's spies to steal information off her server and phones. She even waited until the information was be released to the public before she cleansed her hard drives and smashed all the state dept. and DNC's cellphone and lap top and other Artificial Intelligence devices. That may be why Hillary is afraid of AI devices in the future. AI may be able to find her lost emails in the future!

    So lbr, just what is a lie and what isn't a lie in court. I have found the best way to protect yourself in court - is to just not go to court!

    Now, are you telling me that if your got arrested and had to go to court for something you did that would send you to prison - you wouldn't lie about it to stay out of prison? Now be truthful and answer that question honestly!

    Would you tell the whole truth knowing that would send you to prison?

  • chefgrape,

    I read your comment and I liked it. You were honest and didn't hold back. I am sure a lot of it was aimed at me but that doesn't hurt a thing. I am what you call a Christian Sinner and come short of the glory of God. No one on this earth is without sin, but we are to spread the word of God when we can as Christians.

    David was a man that God loved. David slew the Giant and became one of the Kings of Israel where he built the Temple in Jerusalem and worshiped God everyday. Even the people loved him. However one day David had one of his most valued military leaders take a men with him to battle and place him in the front lines where he would be killed so he (King David) could have the man's wife for himself. He committed murder over a woman. He was forgiven by God. I haven't done anything that bad yet, so maybe there's hope for me.

    This country was founded on Christianity and the United States Constitution was written in harmony with God's Law.

    The Declaration of Independence gives us our Sovereignty and declares that all men are created equal (because we all come from our creator). The TN State Constitution says in...

    Article IV,

    Section 2. No person who denies the being of God, or a future state of rewards and punishments, shall hold any office in the civil department of this state.

    All congress has to do is pass immigration laws and that would end all the immigration problems.But they won't do that because it would help make America Great Again.

    The democrats are coming up everyday with more and more stupid stuff to argue about. There is no logic to any of it.

    It is the people causing the conditions we are in. The people have to change before things will get better and how are the people going to change?

  • LBR it is not unusual for lawyers to recommend that their clients NOT testify, especially if they suspect the questioning will get "off track".

    However, I do agree with you that Mr. Trump probably has more legal issues around him than most Presidents. As much as people say they attacked Obama, I don't think it was to this level.

    But, we differ on the reasons for such activity. Mr. Trump had a very active business life before campaigning and therefore a lot of legal issues surrounding him.

    What I see in all this is very little that has to do with the governing the Nation and much more with the levels of hysteria and subterfuge on the part of his opposition to throw roadblocks any way they can. I amazed at the lengths to which they will go.

    Ever heard of the unfair practice of guilt through association? "When you hang with crooks you are a crook."

  • Lavin v. Marsh, 644 F.2nd 1378, 9th Cir., (1981)

    "Persons dealing with government are charged with knowing government statutes and regulations, and they assume the risk that government agents may exceed their authority and provide misinformation".

    Basically that case says if you go to court you should assume that the government will lie in court to prosecute you.

    But we notice, persons can not lie in court or they commit perjury!

    Some legal system, Huh?

  • Sui are you saying that Trump should lie to Mueller because he has done something he could be arrested for?

    I am amazed that Trump is so busy and finds time to continue to bash NFL players.

    Steve this is beyond guilt by association.We have a president with everyone he hires either has been under investigation or is under investigation or indicted and pleading guilty to something.This is too many coincidences.Bill Clinton had to testify before a grand jury and Trump is not above the law.Do you honestly believe everyone around him was meeting with Russians even his son and he never knew.We will find out who his son called on a blocked number while in a meeting with a Russian lawyer.

    Speaking of immigration Trump's words "We have to end chain migration" but his inlaws I guess were an exception huh.He must have meant only brown immigrants.

  • I'm sorry lbr, You forgot to answer my one question! Is that too much for you to answer, or are you afraid to answer it because you don't want to admit you would lie? I'm not an investigator, judge or an FBI Agent, so hows come you can't answer a simple question?

    You expect Trump to answer questions he doesn't know is going to be asked of him. Wake up girl and pay attention to the news instead of making it up.

  • Lbr,

    You know what? It looks like Mrs. Trump got her family over here to America just before the congress could sit down and make immigration laws. Is that considered insider trading, lol, or just taking advantage of a lazy congress that doesn't want to touch immigration laws with a 10 foot pole.

    Where are all the democrats praising Trump's in-laws for coming to America and taking advantage of the chain Migration before Trump could stop it. You see Trump can't stop it until it becomes LAW which congress can't get together and create.

    If it isn't something that puts money in their pockets, they aren't interested in putting their name on it. So don't blame Trump. Obama took advantage of our swamp laws so why shouldn't Trump, if congress is going to do nothing!

    God chose Trump to be the President or he wouldn't be the POTUS so, anyone questioning God's decision must not know God at all.

    I told everyone I knew that it would take a special person to be President after what Obama did to these united States of America. When people realize God put Trump in Office maybe they will calm down and start helping us be a great Nation again.

  • Sui what was it about Trump that makes you think God approves of?The man spends his Sunday's on the golf course.And to answer your question NO I would not lie.Since Trump seems like it has become the norm now to lie at every chance.Some times God allows things to happen to teach people a lesson,be careful what you ask for.This may be God's way of exposing his corrupt family and associates.Mueller sure is finding a lot of "witches".

    Ask yourself this question Why is Trump bashing the NFL but remain silent on White nationalist hate groups coming to DC this weekend.These groups praise Putin and are to ignorant to know what he stands for because they do not read.You disrespect the flag when you fly Nazi flags and refuse to fight for your country.Will they be happier if Trump rules this country like Putin rules Russia?If so then they need to move there.

    I see another one of his criminal crook buddy supporters,Rep Chris Collins arrested.Birds of a feather flock together.

    You can't answer it, can you?

  • Lbr,

    1 John 3:8

    The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning.

    1 John 3:10

    This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not Godís child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister.

    Romans 3:23

    for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

    Matthew 12:36

    But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.

    So tell me, LBR, what human being on earth is not a sinner and doesn't comes short of the Glory of God?

    It all comes down to... Every living human being with have to come face to face with Christ in the end. It is what God says, not what we think about someone!

    But first don't forget to answer my Question I asked you. It's very important that you answer it for everyone.

  • Charlottesville VA had their anniversary today of the violent protest. The officials have come to their senses and have agreed with me that it was the fault of the Mayor and law enforcement agencies that let the violence get out of control.

    I also get furious when I see all the Fires in Ca and the north western states.

    All that destruction or homes, lives, forests and wildlife is the fault of the Govenors of those states, Mayors and existing regulations.

    All they had to do is dump water and chemicals on the fires the "MINUTE" they are spotted instead of waiting until they are completely out of control. It would be a lot cheaper to use these chemicals and water early to extinguish these fires than to wait. These forest fires are destroying, Homes, Families, Property, forests (Trees), human Lives, domestic animal lives, wild life and vehicles. For the sake of dumping water and chemicals on the small flames they are murdering hundreds of lives, destroying our trees that provide, paper, wood and oxygen and roots that hold the earth together preventing land slides and mud slides.

    Talk about brain dead leaders, we've got em here, in America.

    Are these leaders part of the enemies within our borders God was referring to in the prophecies?

    Don't forget my Question lbr!

  • I'm glad to see we are starting to rely more on the Bible. As long as we are quoting verses, let's take a look at Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV):

    "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left."

    I assume we are all familiar with another verse where we are told not to call anyone a fool. But God calls it as He sees it.

    And while we are quoting verses, I'm still waiting for unreal to quote one where government is told to do the things that all the other verses tell individuals to do.

  • Sui I answered your question.My answer is NO I would not

    Lie and perjure myself that adds more time in jail.

    Everyone sins but you repent of your sins and ask for forgiveness. Trump's words "I never have to ask for forgiveness".Meaning he thinks he never does wrong and doesn't repent right.So he thinks he never falls short of the glory of God.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Sat, Aug 11, 2018, at 10:20 PM
  • See there, You changed the Question. You changed the word I used "Prison" to mean "jail". I did not say jail which is only 11-29 not 1 to 10 years.

    You were not allowed to change my question to mean what you wanted it to mean.

    Same thing would happen if Trump let Muler question him, only Trump wouldn't be able to change the Question or it's meaning like You did and Hillary Clinton did.

    First you say Trump is lying about everything then next You are believing Trump on every word he says as the truth, but you call him a liar!

    Which is it, Trump is a liar or Trump is telling the truth?

    You sound like you might be confused as what to believe other than believing everything that MSNBC and the Fake News Tells You.

    Now to shoot down all your beliefs:

    Romans 3:4

    Let God be found true, though every man be found a liar.

    I know a lot of people who were saved and accepted Christ but still sin and tell lies. You will always be short of the glory of God.

    So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.

  • Sui call it what you want jail and prison are one in the same to me.Quoting Dumpty on what he says doesn't mean I think he is telling the truth by no means.He is a habitual liar.

    He was not even man enough today to mention John McCain's name when signing a bipartisan bill in his name. Oh I forgot he ". Doesn't like heros that were captured".Wonder how the soldiers felt today listening to a draft dodger.

    Seems the military is not happy to have to spend their off time for a useless parade costing millions that could be used for homeless and sick vets. Just to boost the ego of a maniac.

  • Speaking of John McCan't, it is way past time for him to do the honorable thing and retire. If he won't do that, he should ar least have the decency to die already.

    And speaking of way past time, it's nice to see they finally got around to booting Strzok to the curb. Once they get the FBI cleaned up they need to get rid of Rosenberg and a few others at DOJ. And it's also way past time they start putting these traitors in jail. Or tied to the post on the firing line. At least we are starting to pull the deep state up root by rotten root.

  • Dumpty is trying to get rid of anyone who can testify against him.He wants his own people he hired out because they will not"protect him".Their job is to protect the country not Dumpty and why does he need protection?What has he done? He wants people there who will lie for him and plant "rotten roots".Strzok has already got close to $150,000 people have donated for his defense fund.

    Omorosa keeps talking and bringing out tapes and Dumpty keeps tweeting,what a pair.He called her a "low life dog" today.But he brought this low life dog to the whitehouse now she is biting him in the a**.LOL.When a reality star clown in the whitehouse hires another reality star you get a circus.It is unheard of for a president to have a 34% turnover in staff,191 charges,34 indictments and 6 guilty pleas at only 1 and 1/2 years in office.IF these are the "best people" I hate to see others.

  • Come on, unreal. Why don't you put at least 1 foot on terra firma? That just might stop, or at least slow down the terrible spinning your head is doing. Trump and his team aren't planting the rotten roots of the deep state. They were planted decades ago. By both parties. One of the main reasons the LSM, the demonrats, and the republicants continue to be so rabid in their opposition is because he is doing what he said he would do - clean up the swamp. The only people supporting him are the Patriots who are tired of the samo, samo. Too bad people like you and your friends don't want him to do that.
