The sleazy New York Democrats, and their now disgraced (and run out of town) A.G. Eric Schneiderman, are doing everything they can to sue me on a foundation that took in $18,800,000 and gave out to charity more money than it took in, $19,200,000. I won’t settle this case!...

Snowflake first family is full of whiny victims.

Quote:
Donald Trump Jr. has drawn backlash from military veterans after his new book compared his family's experience during the run-up to his father's election to those who died in service of the United States.

Writing in his new book—titled Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us—Trump Jr. detailed a list of grievances his family has suffered since his father decided to run for public office, while saying a "victimhood complex has taken root in the American left."

In it, the 41-year-old detailed a visit to Arlington National Cemetery the day before his father's inauguration in which he likened the lost lives of the service members interred there to the financial toll allegedly suffered by his family.

"I rarely get emotional, if ever," Trump Jr. wrote, according to an excerpt of the unreleased book published by Business Insider. "I guess you'd call me hyper-rational, stoic.

"Yet as we drove past the rows of white grave markers, in the gravity of the moment, I had a deep sense of the importance of the presidency and a love of our country.

"In that moment, I also thought of all the attacks we'd already suffered as a family, and about all the sacrifices we'd have to make to help my father succeed—voluntarily giving up a huge chunk of our business and all international deals to avoid the appearance that we were 'profiting off of the office.'"

He later added: "Frankly, it was a big sacrifice, costing us millions and millions of dollars annually. Of course, we didn't get any credit whatsoever from the mainstream media, which now does not surprise me at all."

Democrat Congressman Ruben Gallego, who is an Iraq War veteran, heaped scorn on Trump Jr.'s words.

"Eight men I served with are buried in Section 60 of Arlington," Gallego wrote on Twitter. "I visit them monthly. Even if Donald Jr. lived a 1,000 years, he will never even get close to being as good and honorable as they were. Sacrifice is only a word to the Trumps."

Matt Gallagher, a former U.S. Army captain and also a veteran of the Iraq war, also weighed in.

"Imagine going to Arlington…and being moved to think about money," he wrote. "You are a soup sandwich, Donald Trump Jr., and my friends buried there would tell you the same thing."


So much boo hoo. ; )

✓ says vets get PTSD because they aren't strong (Oct 3, 2016) (note: yes, he said it's 'because they aren't strong.' He didn't say it's 'because they're weak.' This distinction is important because of Snopes)

✓ accepts a Purple Heart from a fan at one of his rallies and says: “I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier.” (Aug 2, 2016)

✓ attacks Gold Star families (2016-present. Myeshia Johnson--gold star widow, Khan family--gold star parents, etc)

✓ says having unprotected sex was like Vietnam (1998)

✓ for a decade, sought to kick veterans off of Fifth Avenue because he found them unsightly nuisances outside of Trump Tower. “While disabled veterans should be given every opportunity to earn a living, is it fair to do so to the detriment of the city as a whole or its tax paying citizens and businesses?” - 1991

✓ dodges the draft 5 times

Trump considers attending Russian military parade

The president just told pool reporters on the White House lawn that Russian president Vladimir Putin invited him to the Russian military parade in May and he is considering attending.

Trump says he’s thinking of attending Russia’s May Day parade. This is a celebration of Russian military power, which Putin is using to undermine US national security interests across the globe. Why attend? What benefit does Trump perceive to the US? To himself?

4:19 PM - Nov 8, 2019

Trump at one point admitted that Russia helped elect him as president, though he quickly backtracked on that statement. “Russia, Russia, Russia!” he once tweeted in May in a fury Tweetstorm in the wake of the release of the special counsel’s report.

Robert Mueller said in public remarks that his investigation established that the “Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome.” It’s no wonder Putin invited him to the parade...

I think it was you that implied Obama would not be able to withstand a scandal as massive as being ordered to pay a fine because...racism.

Can you be clear in your own words and say what exactly I am supposed to not be ok with? Just one good example please.

A lot of Trump’s actions seem nonsensical unless you assume he is working to advance Russian interests.

Months before President Trump pressed Ukraine’s newly installed president to investigate Joe Biden’s son and alleged 2016 U.S. election interference, two associates of Rudy Giuliani urged Ukraine’s prior president to announce similar probes in exchange for a state visit to Washington, according to people familiar with the matter.

A late February meeting in Kyiv between Lev Parnas, Igor Fruman and then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko took place at the offices of Ukrainian general prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko, the people said. It came soon after Messrs. Parnas and Fruman met with Mr. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, and Mr. Lutsenko in New York in late January and again in Warsaw in mid-February, Mr. Giuliani has said.

Mr. Lutsenko also attended the February meeting, the people said. Mr. Poroshenko didn’t ultimately announce that he was opening those investigations. Mr. Lutsenko, the prosecutor, in March said he was investigating the Bidens and election interference, but in May said he had no evidence of wrongdoing. No White House meeting resulted from the discussions.

The meeting, which hasn’t previously been reported, shows associates of the U.S. president’s personal lawyer as early as February were pressing the president of Ukraine to open investigations that could benefit Mr. Trump politically in exchange for a White House visit.

I can see you’re not a thinking person and simply parrot other ideas you encounter through your government approved entertainment.

Maybe you’ll prove me wrong and explain in some fantastically convincing way how in any universe the word “Covfefe” is something to not “be ok with.”

More likely, you’ll resort to Alinskyism and post some Boomer-tier meme or wall of text from Plebbit.

Your obsession with the Turner Diary is a strange one.
(Maybe a deflection from the Anne Frank Diary hoax?)

I haven’t read that book, not really my cup of tea, but based on your comments, I’m sure you have read it and can tell me exactly what is wrong with it in a clear and concise way.

Feel free to start a separate thread if you wish on Dr. Pierce, I’m happy to participate with my limited knowledge. Don’t know much about the guy, except for his comments on the Anne Frank hoax, which are spot on and indisputable, which is why your attacking his other work and quoting a Netflix documentary about Timothy McVeigh as a deflection.

For the record, before we move on and lose track of wherever we are, let’s all agree that Anne Frank did not write the Diary of Anne Frank but it doesn’t matter because we all like the message in the book. Right?

Quote:
Steven J. Menashi, who worked as a senior official at the U.S. Department of Education in 2017, has been nominated to a lifetime judicial appointment on a federal appeals court.

Menashi is the former General Counsel for the U.S. Department of Education under Secretary Betsy DeVos. And in his capacity, he made concerted efforts in 2017 to deny student loan forgiveness to thousands of borrowers – efforts that a federal court found to be illegal.

The loan forgiveness program in question pertains to Borrower Defense to Repayment. This program was formalized through regulations in 2016 at the tail end of the Obama administration to provide relief to student loan borrowers who had been defrauded by their schools. When DeVos took over as Secretary in 2017, her administration tried to rewrite the rules governing the program to make it easier to deny people student loan forgiveness.

Menashi was integral in the Department’s efforts to water down Borrower Defense to Repayment. He drafted a memo, which formed the basis of formal Department policy, advocating for pulling employment earnings data of student loan borrowers from the Social Security Administration – without their permission. That data was then used to deny relief to student loan borrowers on the basis that they were making too much money – a factor that is not relevant to the 2016 governing regulations.

This practice was ultimately challenged in court by consumer rights advocates, and a federal district court judge struck down the practice. The judge held that Menashi’s policy was illegal and violated the federal Privacy Act.

After that, Menashi left the Department of Education and became part of the White House legal team. He has now been nominated to be a federal appeals court judge.

Your obsession with the Turner Diary is a strange one.
(Maybe a deflection from the Anne Frank Diary hoax?)

I haven’t read that book, not really my cup of tea, but based on your comments, I’m sure you have read it and can tell me exactly what is wrong with it in a clear and concise way.

Feel free to start a separate thread if you wish on Dr. Pierce, I’m happy to participate with my limited knowledge. Don’t know much about the guy, except for his comments on the Anne Frank hoax, which are spot on and indisputable, which is why your attacking his other work and quoting a Netflix documentary about Timothy McVeigh as a deflection.

For the record, before we move on and lose track of wherever we are, let’s all agree that Anne Frank did not write the Diary of Anne Frank but it doesn’t matter because we all like the message in the book. Right?


Wrong, Earl. You've read it. Everybody should read it, with a barf bag handy. It really is a window into the "mind' of people like you. But keep babbling about Anne Frank. Pretty soon you'll get around to Leo Frank, too. :lol:
