Did the Governor of Michigan really ask for Mr. Trump's help?

  • The FBI, which is a federal agency and considered the government did infiltrate and arrest the people who were attempting to kidnap her. I would guess that she was informed of these efforts, and encouraged this agency to proceed with this effort. There were probably some members of the Trump administration informed of this.

  • Oops! I left out a main point. She was claiming she asked for help and no one responded. In the case of the FBI they responded so I am not sure to what she was referring they did not do.

  • The FBI was probably operating autonomously, that is their directive.

    If a group was attempting to kidnap her, that is a federal crime, so the Feds could go in and arrest the tyrants, without the governor's permission. This would also be insurrection against Michigan. She should have called in her National Guard.

    Trump is letting it all play out so the people can see how these Democrats are. More VOTES for Trump!

  • Sui . . . everyone is watching and seeing how Trump encourages and emboldens individuals like the ones who plotted to kidnap the governor and other disturbing radical groups like the Proud Boys. After the election, he can watch it all play out at home when a new president is elected. I will say this, if I had a dollar for the ignorant comments I have seen in these blogs then I would be filthy rich. :-)

  • How do you judge an “ignorant” comment jackspike?

    Which words spoken by Mr. Trump Do you see as encouraging violence?

  • Speaking of ignorant comments, I guess jaxspike missed where one of the kidnappers posted an anti-Trump video?

    Of course there will be plenty of ignorant comments on these blogs. This is America! The libtards have as much right to free speech as normal people do.

  • That won’t make headlines since it does not meet the mainstream press criteria.

    You admitted you read the blogs.

    No rebuttal?

  • Speaking of ignorant again...

    Remember when the leftys said Trump had to go to jail for campaign contribution limit violations? The theory was that paying Stormy for the rights to her book and her silence was a benefit to his campaign and so was the same as an undeclared campaign contribution.

    Remember that?

    They were very serious and sure he belonged in jail. Some still threaten to prosecute him for that after he's no longer president.


    Facebook and Twitter may or may not be within their rights to refuse to accept pro Trump ads or materials or supporters, but there is no doubt that making facebook exclusive for anti Trump content is a benefit to the Biden campaign. It's not only massive, it's quantifiable. What is the cost of advertising on facebook 24/7 to the exclusion of Trump? How much would you have to pay facebook to buy up all the time and generate all the ad income that they would otherwise get from pro Trump people? A few billion dollars, easy.

    Biden should go to jail for life, and anyone else who didn't declare at least a few hundred million of that benefit as contributions to their own campaigns.

    Now, that's not just legal sophistry. You know this is being done to bolster Biden's chance for election, and Democrat Semators' too. It really is a huge partisan campaign contribution, and nobody has declared it as such, and they should all go to jail.

    Do I really think they should go to jail for not declaring campaign contributions ?

    Nah, not all. Mostly the hypocrites who went after Trump for doing far less.

    The rest of them should just be barred from ever holding public office.

    That means you, Pelosi Nadler and Schiff

    But most of all. those people who run Facebook actually should be jailed for conspiracy to break campaign contributon laws and for being hypocrites, both of which are easily proven.
