You know mat-ty, believe it or not, I'm not alone.

You have to remember that Donald Trump lost the popular vote, and that was against the "worst of all candidates", Hillary Clinton. And, I don't see Trump winning into the future, especially given his nature.

Just keep remembering all those folks that see things more like me.

Back to the popular vote thing? Good grief. Rolling Eyes

NW30, you just keep wringing your hands up to the Fall 2018 elections. And, just remember that Hillary Clinton will not be on the ballot, and arguably those on the right could be struggling in many areas. I'm thinking that Donald Trump won't be a big asset leading up to November.

No one feared Obama. That’s why he never got anything done. Trump has freed political prisoners, pardoned and redeemed those Obama avoided. Jack Johnson. Sholom Rubashkin.

Otto Warmbier died because Obama was a coward.

Imagine where we’d be if Trump had run in 2008. Utopia.

Warmburgier was only released because he was dying from recent abuse because of trump they hammered him and also then made two more americans prisoners under trump.

Kim does not fear trump you putrid low-level thinker... Again he knows there is nothing the USA can do, he has enough conventional weapons within miles of the capital of south korea to destroy it and his nukes well now they can take out the usa just by launching them with weather ballons...

North Koreans stood up White House advance team in Singapore

Quote:
North Korea stood up U.S. officials in Singapore last week at a meeting that was intended to set the stage for President Trump’s now-canceled summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the White House said Thursday.

White House deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin and other U.S. officials arrived in Singapore to meet with North Korean officials for a meeting that had been set up by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his North Korean counterparts.

“They waited and they waited,” a senior White House official said. “The North Koreans never showed up. They simply stood us up.”

Did you read the article? or do you choose to remain an ignoramus?


What are you choosing to be? The cite you provided in an opinion piece. More name calling from Mat-ty. At least he is consistent Rolling Eyes


It's the handwriting on the wall nitwit, believe what you want.
The American people are growing tired of the hissy fit and the polls are swinging back to red.

Bard are you happy that Donald Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio?

Frankly, I don't think that justice was served by letting such a despicable man off the hook. He should have served time for his misdeeds.

It was a misdemeanor for an octigenarian. He wasn't going to serve time.

He, like Trump, is a fascist who scapegoats immigrants to curry favor with you deplorables.
Quote:

The court documents that outline Arpaio's crimes tell a different story.

Arpaio was convicted of intentionally violating a judge’s order that he stop his enforcement of federal immigration laws. But behind that simple summary of the former sheriff’s transgressions sit reams of documents and hours of testimony, mostly from people who worked behind the scenes for Arpaio.

The evidence painted a picture at odds with the public persona Arpaio projected as American's Toughest Sheriff and immigration foe.

Arpaio once considered being in the country illegally a "minor" crime, but became focused on immigration, according to testimony cited by the judge, because of the media coverage and political donations the issue attracted. Deputies choreographed immigration sweeps for maximum media coverage, knowing that part of the job was to make Arpaio look good.

And, though some of it might have been a legal strategy to avoid culpability, Arpaio was portrayed as a merely titular sheriff over his own organization, one whose stern bluster was ignored by the rest of the organization, according to testimony and filings, some by Arpaio's own attorneys
.

Arpaio claimed to not understand the order, though he had a cadre of chief deputies and attorneys trying to keep him in line. Two said they took pains to explain the order to him; one did so slowly, the other reduced it to three words. Still, Arpaio responded with three words of his own, ones he would often repeat in one form or another to reporters: Nothing will change.

That persistent disregard would lead to a criminal conviction. That conviction still stands even though Arpaio was pardoned last Friday.


But Arpaio changed his tune the next year, in concert with the Maricopa County attorney at the time, Andrew Thomas, who would later be disbarred in part because of his activities in office.

The Arizona Legislature passed a statute against smuggling people. Thomas interpreted the law to apply to the people being smuggled. He said they could be charged with conspiracy.

Arpaio ran with it.

He developed a Human Smuggling Unit and sent deputies patrolling known smuggling corridors in remote areas of Maricopa County. When deputies found suspected vehicles of smuggled migrants, they would question them. If they admitted paying for the journey, his deputies would charge them with felony conspiracy.

Arpaio said he was conflicted about his office’s actions, but was compelled to make the arrests because of the law.

"I have compassion for the Mexican people," Arpaio told The Republic in May 2006. "I'm torn between compassion and doing my job as the elected sheriff.”

His office was the only agency in the state to apply that interpretation of the smuggling law. That interpretation would later be invalidated by a federal judge.


Tell me troll--did Arpaio take any enforcement action against companies that hired undocumented workers?

Bard, as I recollect, Donald Trump pardoned Arpaio before sentencing. The whole thing reeks. What about the rule of law? Again, justice wasn't served, and Arpaio should have been sentenced. Criminals should have to pay the price for what they do.
