Wow!!

Flynn is FUCKING GUILTY, no matter what discussions some people were having regarding interview tactics. But now Team Trump is going to twist this into something completely different.

ANAL TRUMP for presidents.


Sorry, couldn't help myself.

I don’t have time to do anything with this right now, just wanted to make sure it didn’t disappear : )

I bet I know how this proceeds now: The judge (Obama appointee, surely!) will (rightly) deem that Flynn is still guilty, and that these notes have no effect whatsoever. Cue the outrage in Trumpyworld. Flynn gets pardoned very quickly (fuck you Obama!) and plays a major role in Today's GOP. While the dust still settles, Stone gets pardoned.

Amirite?

$10, anyone?

South Dakota has voted for the Republican ticket in every election since 1968. Donald Trump continued the Republican tradition in South Dakota, carrying the state with 61.5% of the vote, to Hillary Clinton's 31.7% of the vote, a 29.8% margin of victory, the largest for either party candidate since Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower's 38.5% margin in 1952.

Crushed her. And in 2012, Romney won by 18.02%; 2008, McCain by 8.41%.

Of course, if the United States ACTUALLY HAD A REAL DEMOCRATIC ELECTORAL PROCESS (newsflash: you guys DON'T), those votes for the losing candidate would have counted for something in the big picture. Nice system, people.

South Dakota is redeemed by the Black hills but otherwise is a totally backwards shithole where I've had to spend way too much of my precious time that I'll never get back out of my life.

Dead wrong.



Now do something very simple: shut the fuck up until you post something about music. Let's see what happens.

I appreciate the low cost of living and no state taxes.


That said I've also been single for 18 years and that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon.

“What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute [Flynn] or get him fired?”

FBI Notes confirm it was all a pretext.

 



The operation that targeted Flynn: CROSSFIRE RAZOR

1/4/17: FBI field office found “No derogatory information” on Flynn and decided to close RAZOR.

1/4/17: FBI leadership (STRZOK) went off the rails and targeted Flynn: “Don’t close RAZOR”

 


 



On January 4, 2017, Donald Trump was a citizen, Barack Obama was President!

Eh, who wants a relationship. Buncha bullcrap compromises that end up amounting to a huge resentment towards a person you didn't have much in common with anyway. I don't even wanna share the remote.

I will never understand how anyone can see that Trump is better than Clinton or Biden, no matter how flawed/hated/boring/whatever those latter persons are. At least they are not completely incompetent narcissists.



Let's just remember that Trump never won because he was any good. He won because Hillary was very bad.

I'm afraid the same thing is going to happen all over again.

Savage Clone 05.01.2020 10:02 AM

South Dakota does have a lot of redeeming qualities but they're mostly related to the natural landscape. Which is pretty awesome I'll admit. Culturally not so much..

This is how you respond after a mass shooting:

I think you are oversimplifying things. He won for a lot of reasons, of which Clinton (who won the popular vote by nearly 3 million) was one of them.
