According to press reports, Iran may be planning an assassination, or other attack, against the United States in retaliation for the killing of terrorist leader Soleimani, which was carried out for his planning a future attack, murdering U.S. Troops, and the death & suffering...

...caused over so many years. Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!

Left California for Arizona. Leaving Arizona after a GREAT meeting with our incredible Hispanic community. Heard fantastic and inspiring success stories. Will be landing in Washington (D.C.) soon! Big White House ceremony tomorrow morning with Israel, UAE, and Bahrain.

Did you see where Joe Biden — as Weak, Tired, and Sleepy as he is, went to a Polling Place today in Delaware (of course!) to VOTE!? If Biden can do it, any American can do it!

We had great rallies this past weekend, after the Governor of Nevada worked very hard to cancel all of our venues. Despite the fact that he controls the state, he failed, but would have rather done rally outside. Can you imagine this man is in charge...

...of the Ballots in Nevada!? Not fair, Rigged Election! @GovSisolak, will use every trick in the book to cheat with Ballots.

If only America had some sort of intelligence service and advisors who could keep the president up to date on these things, so he wouldn't have to learn of them from the news.

It's a stupid ad regardless. The less Donald Trump talks about our troops, the better off he is. All that ad does is remind voters of Russian bounties and "suckers and losers". It's not a great word associate game for Trump to be playing.

Of course, they are able to avoid using pictures of Russian stuff.
Sometimes they use pictures of Nazi stuff.

We are advertising all over the place, but as much as we do, the Fake News likes to say we aren’t. Just being smart. We have much more money than we had at same time in 2016. Also spending on other, and different, elements of the campaign. Starting to get great poll numbers!

I would've thought Trump, given his history, would've steered clear of accusations of sexual misconduct, but then I remember he has no shame and that projection seems to come instinctively to him.

Biden so needs to challenge Trump to a bike ride test. Twitter and the rest of the internet will explode. Late night will go nuts with it. It won't happen but that won't stop some cleverly cruelty directed at Trump.

Yeah, that's not a road Trump really wants to go down.

Captain_Swoop 15th September 2020 08:51 AM

Speaking on Fox & Friends Trump confirmed that in 2017 he supported assassinating Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but the move was opposed by then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.
Trump previously denied wanting to assassinate al-Assad after it was reported by journalist Bob Woodward in his 2018 book.

At the time Trump said. "Not at all. The book is fiction. I heard somewhere where they said the assassination of President Assad by the United States. Never even discussed. It was never even contemplated."

More information is needed but it wouldn't surprise me given some of the things that have come out about how they're treated. And getting evidence is hard considering how restrictive they are about letting any concerned parties in to visit.

Once again, those countries aren't at war with each other. This isn't like Carter with Egypt and Israel at Camp David here. Egypt and Israel were still technically at war. Carter got the two sides to negotiate a peace agreement that ended hostilities. Trump secured a tenuous deal to normalize relations. I say tenuous because Israel thinks they agreed to pause annexation on the West Bank and UAE understood it would stop and that the agreement depended on complete cessation. I expect annexation to resume late in the first week of November.

I'm assuming this is an attempt to either get the Nobel Peace Prize or score a foreign policy win before the election. Since no fighting stopped and the deal has already turned into an obvious attempt to sell fighter jets, this won't go very far towards any sort of peace prize. That and let's face it, The world has a political and diplomatic class. These are sober, well educated people with an appreciation for complexity (though an inability to understand how little control they have over events) and that class will never admit Trump as a member. The Peace Prize would mean acceptance and that will never happen.

As for the election, that's nice, can we talk about unemployment and the corona virus now?

Remember, it's Joe Biden who can't speak coherently.

agreed. He should address unemployment and covid. But Congress should also not be on a 1.5 month vacation with no relief bill in sight. Perhaps they could come up with something to help protect those affected by COVID. We most likely won't see anything until AFTER the election because **** Trump while millions of people suffer just for some political maneuvering.

TheRealnz 15th September 2020 10:27 AM

To add

Regardless you have to admit that the Arab nations recognizing Israeli sovereignty is a big deal. Israelis can finally travel to foreign Arab nations and vice versa. If you don't think that's a good thing and a step in the right direction then I don't know what to say. A lot of our political maneuvering in the middle east is for profit, but also as a deterrent to keep Israel from getting gang banged by all the Arab nations

I am imagining a world where a president never tweets. And if they do tweet, that they don’t retweet. And if they do retweet, they don’t retweet conspiracy theories. And if they do retweet conspiracies, they at least retweet them from humans and not Russian bots.

And just in general, that their communications to the public don’t contain the term “pedo” in any context.

I just never thought I'd see the day where a US president would behave is such a despicable manner as Trump. To sink so low as to push this QAnon pedophile CT against Biden and to allow his son to do so, too, is beyond disgusting. He has taken the Office of the Presidency and turned it into a peepshow, the kind you only go to after dark, alone and with your head down in fear someone might recognize you.

A small few trees explode in full on fires.
It's not water but the sap, which superheated, goes to steam, then... tree go boom. [emoji15]
Unless you're a firefighter or a late evacuee of your neighborhood, you're unlikely to ever see it happen in person. Hope so at least... it's damn, damn hot all around when it happens.

Not the first time I have said this. The hilight is everything that is wrong with the USA. Trump is not the cause of the problems. He is the overt symptom that has brought the problems into the open for all to see. Removing Trump from the presidency will not do a thing to resolve the deep seated problems in USA society. It will just send those problems back underground again where they will continue to fester.

Absolutely. They're like cockroaches in reverse. Whereas light makes them run back to hide in the darkness, Trump just brought them out to the light. There are just certain places I refuse to live in this country because their way of thinking isn't just different to mine; I find it totally incomprehensible.

Okay, for full disclosure, I found out today that three of my cousins and their families lost their homes in Oregon. One of those cousins had the home of a favorite aunt and uncle (uncle now deceased thankfully), a farm where I spent large parts of my summer as a child.

I consider myself well read on the histories of presidents, particularly those who served in my lifetime. Those stretch from Nixon to Trump. I simply can't imagine any of them being on the campaign trail while the entire west coast was up in flames and a major hurricane was about to strike the Gulf Coast. I have every confidence that all those other presidents, including Nixon would have been in the White House (or Camp David which has been used as an emergency command post when the Situation Room was down for some reason), making sure the full force and power of the US Government was being applied to protect American Citizens and ease their burdens.

FEMA, The Red Cross and ordinary citizens with vouchers from their insurance companies are trying to secure hotel rooms in Oregon for people who lost their homes. The problem is that hotels in Oregon are either under threat of evacuation or full of evacuees from other fires. It's simply beyond all logic and reasoning that we have a president who isn't sitting in the Situation Room with his foot on the neck of everyone in the USG who can find a room for anyone displaced by the fires and pressing real hard.

Instead, our president is in Pennsylvania, campaigning in a swing state. I will hate Trump voters forever and never look at one as equal to a real American.
