There will never again be a united America. Ever. The left is hell bent on total domination and destruction of those that don't think like them. The right is in preservation mode against an enemy that wants to destroy it. Why do you think we elected trump? He was an immediate reaction to the divisive Obama. Again the only solution is to go our separate ways. I don't want to live under the rule of of people decreeing the genocide of the unborn and they don't want to live under the rule of people who want borders. Its pretty simple, just split up and let's go our own ways. Everyone's happy.

You listen to Alex Jones too much and worse, take him too seriously.

Only Republicans need to get into preservation mode by dumping Trump and replacing him with Pence to improve their chances of winning in November. If not, I bet the protests and riots will be worse at their convention than the Democrat's. That Trump is bitching about Fox News is another warning sign Republicans better heed.

The good news for liberals is that they only have about 54 months of suffering from TDS.
Two words for you. President Biden.

I know, I can’t quite fathom it either. Though you should get used to it.

Maybe we will get lucky and he will pick a competent VP and then give way to the brain worms in a year or so. Still better than a deranged syphilis ridden brain rotted Trump. Although, I‘m sure your case of Trump Derangement Syndrome will carry on until you are in the grave.

I still can’t believe the current state of the GOP. Who knows, maybe Baron will spark the flames of the currently all but dead GOP in 40 years or so. Like a phoenix made of shit, from the toilet they may rise again some day.

I rattled off several people guilty of what Trump does after you said they didn’t exist.
Let me know which democrat banged a porn star then used illegal funds to pay them off and has their personal attorney in prison for it.
Wait, isn't the skeevy porn lawyer in jail too?

More like President Clinton after knocking off a one term Bush. Who was a much better president than the current occupant and he couldn’t get a second term.

Btw, that was also the last time I voted for a democrat for president. Until this year. Lot of other suburbanites will be in the same boat. Especially women.

In reality Trump is doing a wonderful job of pushing forward change in America for the better. He has awoken a lot of young people who are willing to go protest systemic racial discrimination by law enforcement organizations. I have no doubt that there will be changes made. Mainly via trumps own action he Is galvanizing many people for reform.

Excerpt from a Deroy Murdock on Mattis' rant. History matters.

"He begins by saying very nice things about the protesters, that they want equal justice under the law, we all want that," Murdock began. "Then he has this amazing sentence, 'We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers.'

"What? Are you kidding me? We are not just talking about a couple of people [who] broke away from peaceful protests, put a little bit of shaving cream of the windshield of a police car, something like that," he added. "We're talking about massive looting, attacks on everything from Target to Macy's to Rolex."

In response to Mattis' criticism that Trump does not even try to unite the American people, Murdock said the Republican is the first president in his lifetime who tries to unite the American people.

"Mattis, as a member of the Cabinet, was at the State Of The Union -- he was sitting in the front row -- when Donald J. Trump said this [in] 2018: 'I want to talk about what kind of future we are going to have, what kind of nation we are going to be. All of us together as one team, one people and one American family,'" Murdock said. "That seems like an effort to try to unify us.

"Then you look at the policies he supported. For example, supporting historically black colleges and universities, providing federal funding, finding corporate sponsors to help with their apprenticeship programs," he went on. "I think the huge thing he's done is to try to unify the country."

"Criminal justice reform," Murdock added. "This is something Black Lives Matter has screamed for, for years. Obama and Biden didn't deliver that, guess who did? Donald J. Trump. That seems like quite the effort to try and unify the country."

In response to criticisms of Trump's demeanor, Murdock explained that Trump has the right tone for the times he is in.

"Look, these are tough times and the other side is not polite to him. We've seen the other side's behavior out in the streets over the last few days," he said. "So he's supposed to be nice and sweet and gentle like Mr. Rogers while these other people call him names, call him racist, call him Hitler, worse than Hitler, somebody actually called him. I don't see a lot of politeness on that side.

"One important thing also that General Mattis brought up in his very, very flimsy article," Murdock concluded. "He said, 'At home, we should use our military only when requested to do so on very rare occasions by state governors,' as opposed to federal governors, I suppose.

"This is the Insurrection Act of 1807. It's been used by 12 different presidents from Jefferson all the way to George H.W. Bush. One of those occasions was by the Democrat hero Lyndon Baines Johnson. He actually brought in the military -- guess what? -- to put down riots in Washington, D.C," he said.

"So General Mattis really should have picked up a couple of his history books."

Sounds very similar to Monica/Vernon/Bill. But I bet you won’t have the intellectual honesty to admit it.
One is infidelity and lying. The other is infidelity, lying, prostitution, illegal use of funds, lawsuits, NDA, etc.

One resulted in an impeachment by the GOP. The other was ignored by the GOP. How intellectually honest is that?

Didn't agree with the Clinton impeachment at the time, nor now.

Having said that, one was a sitting President, the other was not. Seems a fairly substantial difference, but we know your world view.

The payment he made to the Porn Star was during his campaign. It violated campaign law. But we know the GOPs use of selective law enforcement.

Man, hasn't this been the same thing over the years . The dems defended and ignored Clinton. You can't have it both ways.

Which one of Clinton's lawyers is in jail for paying off a porn star with illegal funds or even just in jail period? That seems to be the key piece missing. You know illegal stuff. Every country in the world has leaders who have committed infidelity.
