  1. The words Trump and Ethics should never be uttered in the same sentence. 🙂

      Sam McCormack Funny, then why are most highly educated people liberals? Why are Democrats always having to clean up the economic and ecological messes left by the Republicans?

    • SOMETIMES you can understand the meaning of a word by its opposite! 😁
      Sharing my report:
      Per my investigations, Trump is master in creating propaganda & conspiracy theories to scare & brainwash his voters, and then highlight himself as the only savior & hero against the fake news and the mess he himself created!
      Please read my investigation report on how he is running the biggest propaganda & conspiracy theory machinery in US history under the umbrella of SOCIALIST Falun Gong’s media channels https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-wNdNH9VaQ&t=98s

      @Said Saeed Yes, we’ve all heard it before, he makes No apologies for touting his IN-abilities.
      2017-07-22 · Trump railed against a rigged system. “No one knows the system better than me,” he said pausing to smile, “which is why I alone can fix it.” Declaring that he is the “law and order candidate,” he said, “Our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and terrorism in our cities, threaten our way of life.”

      @Sam McCormack EDUCATE YOURSELF.
      WHO IS MORE CORRUPT IN CONGRESS BETWEEN THE REPUBLICANS AND THE DEMOCRATS?
      “When comparing criminal indictments of those serving in the executive branch of presidential administrations it’s so lopsided as to be ridiculous. Yet all I ever hear is how corrupt the Democrats are.
      So why don’t we break it down by president and the numbers:
      —-Obama (D) – 8 years in office. zero criminal indictments, zero convictions and zero prison sentences. So the next time somebody describes the Obama administration as “scandal free” they aren’t speaking wishfully, they’re simply telling the truth.
      —-Bush, George W. (R) – 8 years in office. 16 criminal indictments.
      16 convictions.
      9 prison sentences.
      —-Clinton (D) – 8 years in office. 2 criminal indictments.
      1 conviction.
      1 prison sentence. (not her!)
      that’s right nearly 8 years of investigations. Tens of millions spent and 30 years of claiming them the most corrupt ever and there was exactly ONE person convicted of a crime.

      –Bush, George H. W. (R) – 4 years in office. one indictment. one conviction. one prison sentence.

      —-Reagan (R) – 8 years in office.
      26 criminal indictments.
      16 convictions.
      8 prison sentences.

      —-Jimmy Carter (D) – 4 years in office. one indictment. zero convictions and zero prison sentences.
      —-Gerald Ford (R) – 2 1/2 yrs in office. one indictment and one conviction. one prison sentence.
      Pardoned Richard Nixon.
      —-Richard Nixon (R) – 6 years in office.
      76 criminal indictments.
      55 convictions.
      15 prison sentences.
      —-Johnson (D) – 5 years in office. zero indictments. zero convictions. zero prison sentences.

      —- So, let’s see where that leaves us.

      In the last 53 years Democrats have been in office for 25 of those years while Republicans held it for 28.
      —————————————————————————————————————————————-
      In their 25 years in office Democrats had a total of three executive branch officials indicted with One conviction and one prison sentence.
      That’s one whole executive branch official convicted of a crime in — two and a half decades of Democrat leadership.
      —————————————————————————–
      ———————————————————-
      — In the 28 years that Republicans have held office over the last 53 years they have had a total of (a drum roll would be more than appropriate).
      120 CRIMINAL INDICTMENTS of executive branch officials.
      89 CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS and 34 PRISON SENTENCES handed down.
      That’s more prison sentences than years in office since 1968 for Republicans. If you want to count articles of impeachment as indictments (they aren’t really but we can count them as an action), both sides get one more.

      However, Clinton wasn’t found guilty while Nixon resigned and was pardoned by Ford. So, those only serve to make Republicans look even worse.

      With everything going on with Trump and his people right now, it’s a safe bet Republicans are gonna’ be padding their numbers a bit real soon.

      So let’s just go over the numbers one more time shall we. 120 indictments for Republicans.
      89 convictions and 34 prison sentences.

      Those aren’t “feelings” or “alternate facts” those are simply the stats by the numbers.
      Republicans are, and have been for my entire lifetime, the most criminally corrupt party to hold the office of the presidency.”

      From: Larry Garland and “Jack”
      ody can,” Trump told

      Kushner Klan Kronies first sunk their teeth into DNC before infiltration riding lunatic Evangelical Tea Party insurrection of GOP. Pelosi has never stood up to the Zionists in DNC first due to her donors’ wishes, then due to her husband’s history was a business partner of Trump’s back in USFL days. It cannot be swept under much longer, so pretty disappointed Pelosi didn’t step aside and promote a Speaker without so many stink stripes. I don’t hate Pelosi, but a lot of failures on her watch because her associations keep her beholden to Theft of Palestine agenda, sending our TAXPAYERS MONEY to middle east fabricated instability of proxy wars, with enough of our money going that all Israeli citizens get FREE HEALTHCARE whilst we who pay for that can lose our one humble home with one major health crisis economic disaster.
      So Pelosi sadly will not glow so favorably in the aftermath.

    • @Gabriel Fernandez from what I see your the one that is ignoring facts. Trump never said he was going to arrest peaceful protesters. Their job in Portland is to protect the Federal Building that the little punks are trying to burn down. They are nowhere close to being peaceful, nor are they protesting. In my opinion the Feds should disperse the crowd with live fire. Blinding someone is cowardly and the practice is banned worldwide.

    • @Gene Robinson Harley has it pretty close. I really cannot believe that I am seeing all of this defense of China. What is this sudden desire to become a Socialist country and worshipping everything communism?

      @camjamsdad I never said Portland. I’m talking about Chicago. Peaceful protesters asking for police to be held responsible. And a wall of hundreds of mother’s at the front line of the protests. And they’re the ones being arrested. I agree the ones looting and destroying the cities should be arrested. But what about the innocent peaceful protesters that are being assaulted just for occupying streets. That’s taking away their freedom of speech

Do you or have you ran with millionaires and billionaires? I have. You know nothing but media lol. You have no idea unless you run and play golf with them. No , i speak the truth. That’s why I voted Trump before and I will again. It’s fun people speak with thoughts from media and small fish. I ran with the big fish, you have no idea. Democrats only care about their forever seats in Congress and Senate and their life salary. You what to know what real goes on, then stop watching news and media, and start getti g involved in politics and climb the chain of inner circle then you can speak with facts and knowledge. Common people have no idea what these people real inner thoughts are.

  12. No President in the future can EVER be impeached because of Trump.
    Any future President can now just ignore subpoenas for any evidence or possible Witnesses

    • Unless there’s going to be another corrupt dtupid president, yes it’s going to happen again but hopefully there will never be another traitor again .

    • Absolutely correct. I was just going to comment about this. If you can’t get a removable after all that, and now some of the things done after, we might as well write out the Impeachment process. Though, I am glad he didn’t, out of fear that Pency would pardon him, like another GOP pres.
      What this has shown the rest of the world is that there is now an inherent flaw in the American Constitution.

      Well Clintons was at Epsteins island all the time . mmm lets talk about Obama’s dealings. They both need to be in prison.

    • No… Trump knew what Epstein was about, that’s why distanced himself back in the 90s. And he was the only person who helped the prosecution when Epstein was arrested the first time. I have realized just this past month that THIS is one of the main reasons he became president. He really IS “draining the swamp.” I never really understood what that meant before, but the lockdown forced me to sort it all out. The plan is unfolding exactly as it was meant to. The ped0philes are being exposed in record numbers, and they’ve all been screaming in terror at Trump for 3.5 years. But it’s STILL HAPPENING. Clinton was on Epstein’s plane 26 times. Hillary was on it 6 times. The list of your favorite celebrities (all screaming at Trump right now) is a mile long. Pelosi (also screaming at Trump) was on the Podesta email thread (which is all going to come out in Sept when Hillary testifies), and Adam Schiff (another screamer), well, he’s a whole kettle of corruption, that one. Hint: Standard Hotel. What did Anthony Bourdain witness? Trump wished Ghislaine well, because he KNOWS EVERYTHING, so he knows she’s going to need a great deal of luck. You understand that they already HAVE all the evidence, right? The NSA has every cellphone video, every text, every email, every photo. They don’t even really need Epstein and Maxwell anymore. This is all for optics. A slow unveiling of what has been taking place over the past 3.5 years. It’s all being done slowly, so the public will understand it. This is happening internationally and mainstream media stations in other countries are reporting on it. It’s not just in the US. Get yourself some popcorn, and enjoy the show, and be happy. The world will be a healthier place when this is over.

    Just going to remind all the Trumpsters on here: Obama dealt with a Republican-controlled Congress for 8 years- a Congress that opened 11 separate investigations into Benghazi. There were never Articles of Impeachment filed. It wasn’t because the Republicans were somehow more honorable- they stated day one that their goal would be to get him out. It was because unlike Trump, Obama didn’t break the law.
