    ‘Filthy canopies’ and ‘mussed my hair’: The Funny Trump is back
    By Monica Showalter – June 26, 2018

    One of President Trump’s biggest assets is the one the pundits don’t talk about much: he’s funny.

    Just watched Sneaky Pete practicing for his perp walk as he walks into his closed door testimony.

    This guy is flying without a net. Looks very very uncomfortable. Gone is the perpetual smug assurity that democrats won’t cannibalize their own.

    This has been a scenario in the making, that is the civil war that President Trump has been orchestrating amongst the elite democrats, it has been a theory with lots of peripheral evidence.

    Comey getting nailed in the IG report and The Beast snarking at him on Twitter was another nail in the circle the wagons democrat policy.

    Love it.

    I think Sneaky Pete may puke during his “chat” with congress, the cat looks nervous as The Beast did when someone yelled something at her at one of her rallies.

        This is a battle, this ruling will be appealed, it must be modified. My guess, DNA tests, proper paperwork ifit is a single parent to prove guardianship, are they both child and parent free of communicable diseases, are they vaccinated, are there outstanding warrants for the parent in their country of origin, and relocated to “deportation processing camps”? Where? What is the law? Hmmm…how about Ellis Island it worked before.

        Option. 10 one hundred dollar bills are being held by a US border agent, he is standing in Mexico, the family is reunited at the Mexican border they can walk over get their money and return to their country of origin (we can even give free plane rides) or they can prove their usefulness to America, their willingness to assimilate, and be sent to a deportation processing camp until everything is worked out to the satisfaction of the law. If they do not meet the requirements of legal immigration they are booted just as they came into the country.

            I totally agree, but we are in a battle with the liberal courts and the MSM.

            Always remember often President Trump speaks more with what he does not say than with what he does say.

            He has used this style since his candidacy for the presidency began.

            What has President Trump said about family separation? Something along the line of “I don’t like the look of separating children from their parents.”

            This is all about optics right now. President Trump knows what commercials the Left is going to be playing as the November elections draw nearer.

            What didn’t President Trump say? “Look you SOB’s I know exactly what you’re doing, you’re using the optics to sell a lie, so I’ll match you and raise the stakes, try me, you haven’t won a single hand yet.”

            President Trump has a great poker face. The stupid Left still has not figured this out.

            The democrats have been bluffing for decades, they’ve got all their chips in and President Trump is waiting for the proper mint to call their bluff.

            This whole thing is interesting as to getting an inside look into Trump’s mind but at the 2:30 mark Citizen Trump tips his hand.

    Dan Rather, attempting to attack Trump, ends up giving him a campaign slogan.

    After saying that he had never seen anything like Trump, Rather said, “President Trump gives every indication by what he says and what he does and what he doesn’t do, that he’s mean as a wolverine, and we’ve never had a president who had that reputation.”

    Why, thank you Dan! Yes, that’s why we elected him! We don’t need another cuckold or man-child with mom jeans and a girls’ bike in the White House.

    Mean as a Wolverine. Perfect! I hope this trends.

          No idea. Could be a visit to Harley, the person I know who works as a higher up there would probably not welcome a call of inquiry from me 😜.

          WI has deep deep pockets after Act 10 brought the battle for our country to our front door, then Scott Walker was the first to reach into his bag of bullets and shoot patriots right in the back when candidate Trump was looking strong in the race.

          So POTUS may be speaking with Scott with Harley, I don’t know. I don’t even know if Ryan is around or if he is working out in the congressional gym and admiring himself in a full view mirror.

          Today I listened to one of our local guys, Mark Belling, what a flipping hypocrite. When candidate Trump came to town during the primary Trump visited a polling place. I thought Mark a huge Cruz supporter and a huge Trump hater was going to have a stroke live on the radio.

          Seriously no joke. He was livid, Shouting about did Trump get within 200 feet of the voting booths!!! If he did arrest him. I swear I could hear him ready to hyperventilate he was so angry.

          Mark was all kind of ugly about candidate Trump.

          I very very rarely listen to him but with Kennedy out the door I wanted to hear some news while driving so I listened to Mark.

          He was going on about how he thought President Trump was doing a spectacular job, even in some areas where the Great Mark didn’t necessarily agree with him πŸ™„.

          I just couldn’t stand it so I had to turn him off.

          I just realized that the Republican Party has tried to call me 3 times today. I wonder if President Trump is going t be in Waukesha for some reason…..

          Nope.

          They just called again, so I answered and it is a robo call from that feckless little moron Paul Ryan telling why is endorsing Leah Vulkmir for the Senate.

          Go to hell Paul Ryan.

    About Harley Davidson. I am going to be very careful here. The leaders who run it in Milwaukee are are a bunch of assh*les.

    At least one of them is a card carrying Trump hating elitist Liberal. He was promoted to that position because he gets along dandily well with the top brass πŸ€”.

    Just saying, trust me on this, the only hand extended there is one of exploitation and opportunity to pretend they are President Trump supporters.

    The plan to move some of Harley production was already in the works when Harley went to the White House, President Trump already knew about this plan. The European market is expanding.

    Remember these are folks so disconnected from the average Harley rider they picked Elton John as the big surprise Harley sponsored concert.

      Harley’s had problems for decades. The hog became a pig under AMF – I remember at one point a dealership (an American Motors one, I believe) was advertising a free Harley if you bought one of their cars. The Harleys were such a piece of crap that the country almost went bankrupt.
      In the early 80s AMF sold it to some investors who brought it back into a class act status but Japanese bikes had been and still were coming into the country and were a better value all around. You’ll note that many LEA are driving Japanese patrol bikes as they are cheaper and generally a higher quality. In the ealy 2000s there were even complaints from PDs on the Harley police bikes safety, a rep that still follows them.
      Harley’s had economic problems recently and for decades has had the government put tariffs on imported bikes to help its bottom line yet it still has problems staying afloat. It may be using this latest issue to justify a planned move to an overseas site to try and cut production costs and stay afloat.
      This is sure gonna roast the Hell’s Angels as they require members drive only US made scoots. That leaves Indian as the only viable US road bike.

        The #WalkAway Campaign is a true grassroots movement. It is a video campaign movement, dedicated to sharing the stories of people who can no longer accept the current ideology of liberalism and what the Democratic Party has become. Some left long ago. Many of us have recently been β€œred-pilled”. Some here have wanted to leave for some time, but have feared the consequences they might suffer from friends or family if they walk away.

        This group is here to encourage and support those on the left to walk away from the divisive tenets by allowing people to share their stories, or watch the video testimonies and read the posts of others who have walked away.

        But this campaign also serves another very important purpose. For far too long, the left has controlled the narrative in this country in news and media while the β€œsilent majority” on the right have done what they always do- remained silent. The left has been allowed for so long to reinforce the narrative that everybody on the right is a bigot, a racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, etc. But the left has become so extreme, it’s now time to fight back. I want people on the right to use their voices and tell the world the truth about who they are. Please make a video telling everyone what it means to be a conservative in America. What your values really are. Tell minorities on the left who have been told their whole lives that they are not welcome on the right because of the bigotry and hatred of the people on the right that they are welcome. That there is a seat at the table on the right for everybody.

        This is a movement of patriots of all walks of life- men, women, black, brown, white, straight, LGBT, religious, un-religious, who share something very important in common… we are Americans. And we want our country back.

        Please enjoy the video testimonials and posts, and please leave one of your own!

                The only person in the entire field of races I could vote for lost except county commissioner. The only problem with that is I can see the idiot voters in this county voting for the idiot incumbent democrat come fall. It’s the first time though we’ll have a Republican on the ballot for commissioner though.

            It’s kind of funny awhile back they changed our license plate because folks thought the leaf looked like a pot leaf and folks were offended. That gave us an Indian on our license plate, but it offended folks, so they then made the dumb looking thing we have now that is supposed to be a scissor tail fly catcher, but doesn’t really look like one.

            Now a state offended that a leaf for years on a license plate now looked like a pot leaf voted to take the first step to legalizing pot.

                  Well that is a really pretty bird but it really doesn’t come across on the license plate. Write in a suggestion that they go back to the pot leaf now that’s it legal there.

                    Yeah, when you’re behind someone on the highway it looks even worse. You have to be inches away from one to see it’s a bird, but it still looks nothing like a scissor tail fly catcher.

                    I never thought I’d live to see the day when pot was legal in Oklahoma. I’m pretty sure they have enough signatures now to get it on the ballot to legalize all pot. Six months ago I would have said there was no way Oklahoma would legalize pot, but now I think it would pass.

                    The only way we could be more in the twilight zone is if the libertarians had chosen Exotic Joe as their candidate. At least once you get past his language he can be funny and he actually makes some serious points, but his language, looks and name makes it hard to take him serious. That though would fit right in with voters choosing a runoff between Cornett and Stitt for Republican Governor Candidate.
                    I would vote for Exotic Joe before I vote for either of them. I will vote in the runoff, because there are other runoff races I want to vote in. That race I will leave blank. Come November my choice will be a liberal with a D, a liberal with a R or a Libertarian.

                    Yeah, when I first heard of Exotic Joe I wasn’t sure I wanted to find out either. Then I heard he was censored by the Libertarian party, so I looked and watched a few of his videos. You can’t help but laugh and then the sad part is if he’d cut out the language and the crazy he makes a lot of good points that conservatives can get behind.
                    I have to admit the signs he wanted up at the borders with the giant middle finger to the feds was kind of funny.

                    The other two aren’t quite as bad as him and the voters left me no choice but to vote for whichever one comes out victorious in their runoff. One of the Republicans in the Republican runoff is OKC mayor who wants the same for the rest of the state, no thanks! The other is a mortgage company owner who is barred from several states. His idea of taxes is market like the mortgage business and our taxes should match bordering states and he likes the idea of raising them and thinks many of ours are too low.

                    Well the pot smokers and teachers registered to vote this year, many teachers did it as Republicans, openly saying it was to get pro-education/pro-taxes Republicans.
                    The pot smokers didn’t care what party they registered as, they just wanted their first step to legalizing pot in the state.

                    We had way too many Republicans running for governor, at least imho 10 is too many. That hurt and then the teachers playing their games and then having that stupid state question during the primaries. So the top two got 29% and 24%.
                    I voted for the most conservative, but not enough of us as he came in 4th with a little under 8%.

                    Heck even Exotic Joe is more conservative than the top two. I don’t feel much like a Red State any longer.

                    The pot question also brought out a lot of young people who are ignorant. I had a girl tell me today that she helped elect Mullin back to the Senate. I told her for one he’s not a Senator, for two she helped him win the primary not the election. She said she voted for the first time and he was too reelected. I told her if she doesn’t even know how the process works she has no business voting. A Republican and a Democrat candidate was elected and then in November they run against each other to get elected to U.S. Congress.
                    Even worse she did not know that he promised when he first ran that he would only serve 3 terms and lied is running for a 4th term. She said she didn’t care about any of that she thought he was cute. It took all my willpower to not slap her. Instead I told her to do us all a favor and change her party registration to Democrat.

                    I believe that a civics tests should be required in order to get a voters ID/Registration card.

                    People should know the basics or they should not have a say in the future of our country.

                  I think that is the greatest idea, do you have a barn you can dedicate to a rest area? You can then sell folks overpriced candy, chips and ice cream bars. Let them sit on hay stacks and set up some Bob Dylan and Twilight Zone episodes to play on a TV screen.

  26. I stopped listening to rap music just after all us white boys in Boston had memorized NWA, Ice-T, Eazy-E, Public Enemy, Black Sheep, De La Soul, Eric B & Rakim, and several others. We wasted valuable brain cells on that stuff.

    That was twenty years ago. Apparently it got better, as I’m just discovering.

    IQ-wise, it got way better. Look, we listened to Rachmaninoff, too. The gangsta rap was novelty, even though NWA’s production values were top kek.

    This is The Gift of Gab. Such skill.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
