Yeah, was just thinking that the ANC and Wallace Hartley deserve each other.  Perhaps kurster will miss Wallace? 

But if Wallace goes back and completes his high school education, then the world will be a better place.  


In the meantime, I fully expect left-wing national liberation groups and other violent anti-western, anti-American groups are rejoicing in all the light that President Trump is so generously spreading.   As it turns out, Trump is demonstrating to these anti-free market, anti-capitalist, anti-democratic militants that they were fundamentally right all along.

Oh noes. White Genocide! Trump to the rescue!

 
Faaaaahk mate, thanks for this - you are a fucking legend!
 
If you hadn't posted this link I would never had known that what was going on in my country, in my hometown, was not a genocide (Genocide is a term used to describe violence against members of a national, ethnic, racial or religious group with the intent to destroy the entire group).
If it hadn't been for the incredible New York Times I would be seriously misinformed and deluded.
Phew! Just in the nick of time, too!

In fact, mate - you are such a legend that you are the winner, the outright, inarguable and consummate winner...of everything; of the internet, of America, of Radio Paradise, of every thread that you have ever posted in ever....of the entire world. Good for you! I'm sure your mama is proud of you!

When I open the RP website and look at the raft and see all the threads that you have made the last post to, I know you have fucking won them all! I don't even need to open them - I just know you have won them hands down,wInning hearts and minds with every keystroke, such a fucking legend are you!
You are awesome!

In fact, we, the entire rest of the world who are not you, in other words the not-winners, or losers, give you, as a token of the incalculably high esteem with which we hold your rapier intellect and your unfailing ability and uncanny accuracy at copying and pasting URL's, this here set of rhinestone encrusted matching his and hers Ken Doll cockrings.....such a fucking dyed-in-the-wool legend are you.
You blow our minds daily and we are so happy to be able to post to the same threads you own.

I am forever in your debt.
Now go crap in your hat.
As long there is you there will be people like Trump wanting to be President, and winning at it.
So thanks for that too.

RP, its been a lot of fun, since 2004.
Wow!
But it's no longer discussion or experience sharing or learning from each other anymore. I am probably as guilty of it as my friend R_P here, and for that I apologise.

Like most forums and social media sites on the internet, It's not fun anymore and frankly, I have better things to do.

There is a small pile of brass needing cleaning and reloading, and I haven't had a weapon in my house since 1988 so it's taking a while to get back into it. I have been training my 15 year old to be useful in a tight situation, mostly on the 12 gauge pump action, the 9mm, the .223 and an AK47. It works out to a lot of brass.
I am still working on getting my time for the Cooper run test to under 12 minutes. At 55 it takes a while to get back to the fitness levels of 35 years ago. You should try it!

My point is that there are a lot of serious things to do.
And RP is no fun anymore.

So sayonara, friends.
To those who matter, you know who you are, I have had uncountable hours of pleasure interacting with you all for these years, and I have learned so much from you, and for that I actually am truly grateful. You have changed me. I am because you are.
To those who have opened their front doors to me - I call you my friends.

To everyone - be well, be safe, be happy.
Wallace Hartley out.

A few things - I support Trump as well, certainly over Hilary Clinton. I didn't at first because I had swallowed a lot of gumpf about Trump and about the Democrats and Obama....and liberalism etc.
I have come to have a lot of respect for Trump and I actually hope he wins a second term, not least because he will not condone the destruction of my own country by the ANC government as Obama has done and as I reckon HRC will have done.
He will say and perhaps do something once things here begin to look like genocide.

I grew up in a world where the USA was strong  and powerful and I have to say I prefer that world to one where the USA is CHina's asswipe.
 
It does look to me as of the entire Russian thing was a setup to have him chucked out, the outrage and emotional meltdown that a lot of people I know expressed when Trump won has led me to believe that he was not supposed to for some reason, and so it has been a smallish step to begin to think that the Russia thing was supposed to right that wrong.It's politics, a dirty business, and there may have been some shenanigans somewhere, and there may have been something that it was hoped would fester into a big suppurating sore if scratched enough, but my original post was to ask if my impression that it looks to have turned out to have been a freckle was correct. It seems it was.
 
Seriously, from where i sit - I prefer Trump over HRC, even over Obama, and over the other potential candidates I see coming from both the Democrats and the Republicans. I see  Dems spouting semi-Socialist nonsense, and I really think that is to be avoided. At all costs.
I am kinda happy that he survived this Russia thing.
 
Trump is not the worst thing that could happen to America, nor to the world.


 
Yes.  That reason is not allowed though.  It is against the rules in the way the discussion has been framed.  We are only allowed to speak about Trump because he was the winner.  Hillary lost and those who support Trump are not allowed to mention her in any comparisons to Trump.  It's off limits.  but her emails ...

It was a binary choice to the majority of Americans.  T or C.  One of the first things I decided as a voter for 2016 was never a Bush or Clinton again.  I was with Trump as soon as he got off of the escalator and have not regretted my choice yet, especially when compared to what Clinton was likely to do.  Trump is a problem solver.  Clinton is a mess maker.  There are more reasons, but these are enough all by themselves.

I am sad to see what is going on in your country.  I've been following things there since the mid 60's when Surfer Magazine first brought forth to me the issue of Apartheid and all that goes with it.  You're on his radar to be sure.  Hard to say what he might do.  I doubt the EU will be of much help.  Be safe.

What you are seeing is the beginning of the end of a failed coup attempt by the DNC, et al including the Obama administration and establishment RINO never Trumpers, in conjunction with the MSM and the US Intelligence community to overthrow Trump's presidency.  As I have stated many times before, only to be ridiculed, Trump was framed.

Perhaps the most revealing and insightful remark from the Barr summary was this:

But as noted above, the Special Counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts, despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.

This plan was hatched in the Clinton camp during the summer of the 2016 campaign designed to cast aspersions on Trump to keep him from getting elected in the first place.  When that failed and he was elected, the only choice was to further the narrative and get Trump discredited and removed from office before he could do anything to expose the vast corruption of the DOJ and the intelligence agencies of the US government and put people in jail.    Now that has also failed as much as Mueller and his staff wanted to find something to hang Trump with, they were simply unable to do it.  Remember that there were calls to impeach Trump the very next day after the election.  We have seen revelations of many discussions to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office and even the proposition of Rod Rosenstein to wear a wire and record interactions with Trump designed to accomplish that end.

Do be aware that roughly 20% of all Americans and 40% of Democrats steadfastly believe that Trump is a Russian Agent.  I cannot find a reference to these polls numbers I heard several months ago, but they are conservative estimates.  These people will never believe anything different.  They will become a group similar in standing to the Obama Birthers who to this day still believe that Obama is not a natural born US citizen.  These people will be known as Collusioners.  There are many of these people to be found here at RP.  Their posting history is proof of that.

As usual, be advised that I stand alone in these thoughts being the only public supporter of Trump here.  So do take that into account when reading the above.

Here is a lengthy synopsis of how it all went down posted by Richard in another thread.  It leaves out many things that go into the weeds, but overall is how I saw things go down during the past three years.

It's official: Russiagate is this generation's WMD

Here are the important takeaways from the article that I found ...

...
With Russiagate the national press abandoned any pretense that there’s a difference between indictment and conviction.

...
The lack of blowback over episodes in which reporters were put in public compromised situations speaks to the overly cozy relationships outlets had with official sources. Too often, it felt like a team effort, where reporters seemed to think it was their duty to take the weight if sources pushed them to overreach. They had absolutely no sense of institutional self-esteem about this.

Being on any team is a bad look for the press, but the press being on team FBI/CIA is an atrocity, Trump or no Trump. Why bother having a press corps at all if you’re going to go that route?

This posture has all been couched as anti-Trump solidarity, but really, did former CIA chief John Brennan – the same Brennan who should himself have faced charges for lying to congress about hacking the computers of Senate staff – need the press to whine on his behalf when Trump yanked his security clearance? Did we need the press to hum Aretha Franklin tunes, as ABC did, and chide Trump for lacking R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the CIA? We don’t have better things to do than that “work”?

...
I searched the Chait article up and down for reporting that would justify the suggestion Trump had been a Russian agent dating back to the late eighties, when, not that it matters, Russia was a different country called the Soviet Union.

Only two facts in the piece could conceivably have been used to support the thesis: Trump met with a visiting Soviet official in 1986, and visited the Soviet Union in 1987. That’s it. That’s your cover story.

Worse, Chait’s theory was first espoused in Lyndon Larouche’s “Elephants and Donkeys” newsletter in 1987, under a headline, “Do Russians have a Trump card?” This is barrel-scraping writ large.

It’s a mania. Putin is literally in our underpants. Maybe, if we’re lucky, New York might someday admit its report claiming Russians set up an anti-masturbation hotline to trap and blackmail random Americans is suspicious, not just because it seems absurd on its face, but because its source is the same “New Knowledge” group that admitted to faking Russian influence operations in Alabama.

But what retraction is possible for the Washington Post headline, “How will Democrats cope if Putin starts playing dirty tricks for Bernie Sanders (again)?” How to reverse Rachel Maddow’s spiel about Russia perhaps shutting down heat across America during a cold wave? There’s no correction for McCarthyism and fearmongering.

...
I didn’t really address the case that Russia hacked the DNC, content to stipulate it for now. I was told early on that this piece of the story seemed “solid,” but even that assertion has remained un-bolstered since then, still based on an “assessment” by those same intelligence services that always had issues, including the use of things like RT’s “anti-American” coverage of fracking as part of its case. The government didn’t even examine the DNC’s server, the kind of detail that used to make reporters nervous.



 
A few things - I support Trump as well, certainly over Hilary Clinton. I didn't at first because I had swallowed a lot of gumpf about Trump and about the Democrats and Obama....and liberalism etc.

Well at least somebody is talking some sense here: 

 

But even though nearly every Democrat running in 2020 has demanded the release of the full report, some warn against expecting that the Mueller investigation will be the silver bullet that would end the Trump presidency. South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg argued Sunday that the only way to cure the country from Trumpism is to beat him at the ballot box, not in court.

 

“It would be a mistake for Democrats to think that the way for the Trump presidency to end is by way of investigation,” Buttigieg told MSNBC on Sunday. “We’ve got to be paying attention to the kinds of conditions that made it possible for somebody like him to get here in the first place.”

“At the end of the day this campaign can’t be about him,” he continued. “I think part of how we lost our way in 2016 was it was much too much about him and it left a lot of people back home saying, ‘OK, but nobody is talking about me.’”

 

 



 
How do you beat a billion dollar campaign without spending a billion dollars yourself? Be outrageous enough to be on the front page of everything all the time for any reason. I think that is how he won, and very very cleverly he did it too. I have to give him respect for that. I have grown to respect the guy over the past 2 years.

This is like Brexit - deeply confusing to me.

 
The confusing part should be how fast Trump went from "Muller's a conflicted lackey of the Democrats" to "Woohoo! Total exoneration!" 

But the Democrats were hoping/praying for proof of collusion while Trump's mantra has been "No Collusion!" The thing is, just because Trump may not have actively colluded, there's every indication he was aware of their skullduggery, and the Russians didn't need him to help them with their business anyway. Proving actual collusion was going to be a tall order. I have some confidence that the full report will show some appalling lack of good judgment and/or a lot of turning a blind eye. The GOP won't care about that, tho. Be confused about that.
 
Yip, Scott - this is how I am beginning to understand it. There may have been shenanigans, there may not have been, but much like every politician before him he has been able to keep enough distance between him and the shenanigans to appear clean. I think i am beginning to see,,,,

3. Norm MacDonald was right. The voters hated Hillary so much, they voted for someone they hate more just to spite her.
 
That's unlikely. At least the hating more part. The adoring crowds and regular partisans (performing mental gymnastics) say otherwise.

Some likely thought "just eff it" and didn't vote at all, resulting in a tiny electoral majority. Some others drank the populist kool-aid.

3. Norm MacDonald was right. Americans hate Hillary so much, they voted for someone they hate more just to spite her.
