    You're not alone, this is heart wrenching to watch.

    I'm actually just pointing out reality, something you struggle to deal with as a fence sitter. You just supported a President trying to associate an elected official with terrorism, knowing it would bring even more threats.

    Is it you love Israel? When Mr. White Republican literally supports anti-Semite sites, White Nationalist/Nazi gatherings etc. You're trying to have it both ways.

    That quote from that article, pretty much nailed you guys. Just a bunch of fearful types, scared of people who are different from you. Or what I posted before, a bunch of Christian instigators. You don't see Muslims coming in this thread getting at Christians, but you see it just about every day, the other way around. When you aren't posting about gays, immigrants, refugees etc.

    Figure out what you actually believe it and then be consistent with it, even if it means going against one of your Trump online buddies, be less of a coward.

    The ND fire, sad something historic like that up in flames. Got to see it back in the 90's when I visited Paris.

    You don't have to remain silent but attacking sites and such that affect the regular person, isn't exactly going to bring those people to you. It'll have the opposite affect.

    This is very snowflakey, blaming the media and never holding Trump to his issues. He created this by associating the brand with extreme right type stuff. So obviously that's how many see it now. When you tweet out you're a Nationalist, tweet about white genocide conspiracy theory, tweet out about white farmers getting murdered, when all are, support White Nationaist/Nazi rallies, when KKK and racists love you, what do you expect? This is his own doing. You get back what you put out.

    Finally, a real date, Thursday morning:

    Mueller Report Will Be Released Thursday, Justice Dept. Says
    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/15/us/politics/mueller-report-release.html

    Trump breakdown day before. You have a couple of days to get your excuses ready. Probably, never a good idea getting excited about stuff before actually reading it. Read first, then decide, not the other way around.

    Wow! Bernie Sanders shows what it would be like if he or any of his Socialist (Fascist) cohorts get into office. There is no tolerance for those of differing opinions, even if they are not even saying them. Add to it that she is a journalist at an advertised PUBLIC event. Can we say "HYPOCRISY OF THE LEFT" Can you imagine if this was a Trump MAGA rally and this was done to a left-wing blogger?

    For those who like to throw the word Fascist around without even knowing what it really means, here is the definition, which outlines the leftist politicians of our country, including Bernie Sanders.

    fascist - Dictionary Definition : Vocabulary.com
    https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/fascist
    A fascist is a follower of a political philosophy characterized by authoritarian views and a strong central government — and no tolerance for opposing opinions. ... The term was used by Italian political leader Benito Mussolini under his totalitarian, anti-communist government.

    Really? I have read about it, but you confirm it. I turn off location services, yet I know the gps still is tracking. Don’t buy an Alexa unless you want Amazon listening also. Next step will be Alexa and its AI talking and suggesting unsolicited orders of food, entertainment, etc.

    Trump literally tried to ban a CNN reporter. Are you really unaware of Trump's views towards the press?

    This Kaitlin person is just a troll from Infowars.

    Hope the three showers you took you cleaned up. Either this chatbot is in need of a tune up, or Legalizing Marijuana produces this. Or maybe something else.

    Said without concern for the fact that this individual was at a public political town hall, sitting looking at her phone. Intolerance shown not for what she was doing but for what she believes even when not stating it.

    BTW You responded 7 minutes after my post...not even long enough to read the article and watch the video. You just spouted off without truly knowing the content.

    To paraphrase your statement, "this @JB Lions person is just a troll from the fascist left"

    I'm already aware of her. She's a known Infowars troll. Goes to places to get a reaction, then get sympathy from people who don't know any better. I'm also aware of the dumb site you linked too from the author using the name of a character from the movie Fight Club.

    And again, Trump supporters not having a clue on who they support. Do you guys get upset when Trump removes people? I don't remember those posts.

    So it is okay to toss someone out of a public political town hall meeting, because you do not like their opinions? Just because JB is "already aware of her"

    It always amazes me that the leftists pound their chests saying there needs to be tolerance in society, yet they are the least tolerant individuals around. Hypocrites, hypocrites, hypocrites.

    Yep, the GPS still tracks even when location is turned off, My wife was given an Alexa mini, we plugged it in, and the sh*t was crazy and way to off the hook for us, we immediatly unplugged it and put it back in the box.

    Another non-reader. What part of Trump removes people are you not aware of? Or his views on the press (click link below, educate yourself)? And it's not because of her opinion, I just told you multiple times. Known Infowars Troll.

    For your next reply: My goodness. Maybe mr-x can tell you about Bob robbing a bank.

    Do you really want to go down that road?

    How about phone records, spying, etc calling journalists "flight risks" I'll copy and paste here @JB Lions
    so you can pretend that you read it before responding again.


    When it comes to being anti-media, Trump only talks a big game. And, boy, does he talk. Obama, on the other hand, is a man of action. As president, he did much more than complain about Fox News. His administration spent eight long years curbing the press freedoms of journalists of every stripe. Obama was a pro at this.

    Trump’s war against the press is indeed ugly and often over-the-top. But let that criticism come from someone who’s not guilty of far worse.

    In 2009, for example, the Obama White House intentionally excluded Fox News’ Chris Wallace from participating in a round of interviews pertaining to the president’s push for healthcare reform. Later that same year, the administration officials tried to block Fox reporters from interviewing “pay czar” Kenneth Feinberg. The White House initially lied about this, and many in the press went along with it. It wasn’t until 2011 that the public learned the truth of the Feinberg episode. An internal email dated Oct. 22, 2009, showed the White House director of broadcast media told Treasury officials specifically, “We’d prefer if you skip Fox please.”

    The bigger point is that Feinberg was not the only administration official to have his network appearances limited by the White House.

    The Obama White House communications director, Anita Dunn, said at the time, “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent. As they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave.”

    That language about "legitimate news organizations" and "opponents" is only different from the things Trump says by degree, not by kind.

    In 2010, the Obama administration renewed the bogus Bush-era subpoena against the New York Times' James Risen in a prolonged attempt to determine whether the reporter was the recipient of leaked CIA information. In February 2011, federal investigators were revealed to have spied on Risen. Federal investigators pored over Risen's credit reports and his personal bank records. The feds even tracked his phone logs and movements.

    Later, in 2012, Fox was mysteriously excluded from a White House conference call pertaining to the terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Fox was also excluded from an all-network CIA briefing regarding the attacks.

    In 2013, the Obama Justice Department labeled then-Fox News reporter James Rosen a “criminal co-conspirator” under the Espionage Act of 1917. And all because the reporter used a State Department contractor as a source for a story. Rosen was also labeled a "flight risk."

    The Justice Department seized the records of at least five phone lines connected to Fox News. The federal law enforcement agency even seized the phone records of Rosen’s parents. The FBI also got a warrant to search Rosen's emails from 2010.

    In May 2013, the Associated Press revealed that the Justice Department had secretly collected two months' worth of personal and work-related phone calls made by AP reporters and editors.

    Federal officials secretly obtained records on incoming and outgoing calls made by specific AP journalists, as well as general news staff, the news group reported, potentially compromising many sources totally unrelated to the investigation. Federal investigators even collected data on calls made by AP reporters in the House of Representatives press gallery.
