CONNECT THE DOTS FOLKS!

One plane flying into a building could be an accent. A second plane flying into a building is DELIBERATE.

A dozen or more dangerously distructive ‘mistakes, blunders and missteps’ are not gaffes. They are DELIBERATE attempts to weaken the US and the rest of the free world.

When the the Taliban starts the beheadings, they will be broadcast live 24/7 and In Living Color.

A Complete and TOTAL DISASTER by Criminal Joe and his administration. Joe Biden needs to Resign Immediately or be Impeached!

Deborah

This reminds me of another DEMONRAT, Hillary Clinton. Remember BENGHAZI !!!!!!

THosk

This reminds me of another Democrat, “Jimmy Carter” (Remember IRAN) Who now compared to Joe Biden, is looking much better.

Donald Trump interview 1980 Rona Barrett
RB: “Why wouldn’t someone like yourself run for political office? Since you have all the money that you possibly need, you’ve accomplished a great deal, even though you are only 34, I know there’s a lot of things that you possibly can do in the years ahead, why wouldn’t you dedicate yourself to public service? ”
DJT: “Because I think it’s a very mean life, I would love and I would dedicate my life to this country, but I see it as being a mean life, and I also see it that somebody with strong views, and somebody with the kind of views that may be a little unpopular, which may be right, but may be unpopular, wouldn’t necessarily have a chance at getting elected against somebody with no great brain but a big smile. And that’s a sad commentary for the political process.”

Rona Barrett: “You are a mover, you are a doer. If you could make America perfect, how would you do it?”
Donald J. Trump: “Well I think that America is a country that has tremendous, tremendous potential. I think that, much like the mind I think that America is using very, very little of its potential. I feel that this country with the proper leadership can go on to become what it once was, and I hope, certainly hope, that it does go on to be what it should be.”
RB: “What should it be?”
DJT: “Well it should really be a country that gets the respect of other countries…”
RB: “Is respect the most important thing, in your opinion?
DJT: “Well respect can lead to other things.. when you get the respect from the other countries, then the other countries tend to do a little bit as you do, and you can create the right attitudes. The Iranian situation is a case in point, that they hold our hostages is just absolutely and totally ridiculous. That this country sits back and allows a country, such as Iran to hold our hostages to my way of thinking is a horror. And I don’t think they do it with other countries, I honestly don’t think they do it with other countries.”
RB: “Obviously you’re advocating that we should have gone in there with troops, etc, and brought our boys out.”
DJT: “I absolutely feel that, yes. I don’t think there’s any question, there’s no question in my mind. I think right now we’d be an oil rich nation, and I believe that we should have done it and I’m very disappointed that we didn’t do it. And I don’t think that anybody would have held us in abeyance, I don’t think anybody would have been angry with us and we had every right to do it at the time. I think we’ve lost the opportunity.”
RB: “For some people the ultimate goal in life is becoming the President of the United States; would you like to be the president of the United States?”
DJT: “I really don’t believe that I would Rona, but I would like to see somebody as the president who could do the job, and there are very capable people in this country…”
RB: “Most people who are capable are not running for office and most men are frightened of politics today.”
DJT: “It is a shame, isn’t it?”
RB: “Yes.”
DJT: “It is a shame. The most capable people are not necessarily running for political office and that is a very sad commentary on the country. They head major corporations and they head this and that, but they are not running for political office.”
RB: “Why wouldn’t someone like yourself run for political office? Since you have all the money that you possibly need, you’ve accomplished a great deal, even though you are only 34, I know there’s a lot of things that you possibly can do in the years ahead, why wouldn’t you dedicate yourself to public service? ”
DJT: “Because I think it’s a very mean life, I would love and I would dedicate my life to this country, but I see it as being a mean life, and I also see it that somebody with strong views, and somebody with the kind of views that may be a little unpopular, which may be right, but may be unpopular, wouldn’t necessarily have a chance at getting elected against somebody with no great brain but a big smile. And that’s a sad commentary for the political process.”

True Americana

Absolutely remember Benghazi. We should particularly remember the number of hearings the Republicans held. Tell us again why we shouldn’t investigate January 6th?

THosk

Simple answer: Its just a continuation of Russian collusion false accusations made by the democrats. (To get rid of Trump) And also the Senate sanctioned looking into Benghazi, they didn’t sanction investigating Jan 6th because so far, from those arrested in the FBIs massive dragnet over Jan. 6, nobody has been charged with terrorism or insurrection. Instead, most of those arrested are being charged with nonviolent picketing offenses, which is a far cry from the theory that domestic terrorism from Trump supporters is imminent.

Because it was a rigged and stolen election. Criminal Joe and his administration should be in prison!

True Americana

Blah blah blah. It wasn’t rigged, and it wasn’t stolen.

LeeVin100

OK Fake American then you should have no problem with election Commissioners turning over EVERYTING to independent forensic auditors. Better yet, how about you demand that election officials comply with all subpoenas.

That’s what a True Americana would do.

Ken

We have all we need in AZ – 175,000 mail in ballots that were never folded!

Just de-certify and let’s get on with arresting Biden on his many crimes.

True Americana

Nope. Those “independent forensic auditors” are sovcits with bullshit amounts of time on their hands. The elections were already certified and found legal. Even that shyster shit Giuliani affirmed that Trumpadoodle’s election lawsuits had nothing to do with fraud.

The specious argument being perpetuated by you and your ilk – “If there’s no problem with the elections, there should be no problem with an audit” – has ZERO to do with the audit, and everything to do with keeping your traitorous orange buffoon in the public discourse. Eat a bag of shit, asshole.

But, you know, have a blessed day and all that.

LeeVin100

Go ahead and investigate January 6th along with forensic audits of election results. Russiagate, covid super spreader Invasion at the border, Fast and Furious, Hillary’s emails, Biden’s Ukrainian quid pro quo , Hunter’s laptops (computer laptops not the lapdancers). The list is endless.

This is what real transparency looks like.

LeeVin100

Where the hell is the term report?

LeeVin100

Where the hell is the Durham report?

Ken

We should investigate! We need to find out which Demoncrap member of Congress murdered Ashli Babbit. AOC? Nasty Nancy? The neckless fat boy?

Yes, that’s right, the truth is starting to leak out in spite of your team Arkaniciding so many Capital Police and holding the protesters in archaic conditions so they won’t talk.

The truth will out!

Stuart

100% Correct Deborah!

We need YOUR help

Help us to spread the word of the 45th President
