She did nothing of the sort. Again, we are in the age of picking our own truth even in the face clear evidence to the contrary. 

Final command of the party.

I've reluctantly come to the conclusion that most of ABF is very unhappy and to be happy, most of the Lemmings just have to be constantly obstreperous.

 

Not a very nice thing to say about your friend t-falcon

Didn't you say you would leave the country if Obama was elected?

That would make him even with every actor/singer that shot their mouths off about Trump.

Rapinoe has conservatives watching a clip from a soccer game.......and rewatching it and then again in slow mo. That's ******* winning.

Even Trump graciously congratulated them on their win, and they still looked for something to be outraged over.

These PC libs always looking to be offended. Pathetic. They need to grow up!

Now, please watch this clip from something I've watched many times over to find this moment that offends me.

Nice article on the liberal LA Times page:

Trump’s reluctance to bomb foreign countries is a strength, not a sign of weakness
https://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-bacevich-trump-iran-strike-cancellation-20190630-story.html

So you admit that Trump is not starting any new bombing operations during his presidency.  Besides Afghanistan I'm pretty sure bomb rates are falling for the other countries but having trouble finding 2018 stats.  

Notice most of the Lemmings don't bring up Obama and bombing, or the Disposition Matrix Kill list.

I'm going to let that one stand without comment.

I mean, I was going to respond about how sad it is that the election of a thrice-married, serial adulterer who bankrupted multiple casinos and palled around with the Clintons could renew someone’s faith in the country after W.’s third and fourth terms in office, but it probably stands on its own.

Civilian casualties in Syria and Iraq skyrocketed because Trump increased the bombing dramatically and removed barriers to avoid innocent deaths.

Even CNN contradicts you:

"The 2018 figures show a decrease in the number of civilian casualties caused by US air and artillery strikes from 2017, something that the report says is due in part to the absence of heavy fighting in cities like Mosul, Iraq, and Raqqa, Syria, two former ISIS strongholds that saw intense battles in 2017."

You know they have to try and keep up with Obama by lying about it. 

Looking back at President Obama’s legacy, the Council on Foreign Relation’s Micah Zenko added up the defense department’s data on airstrikes and made a startling revelation: in 2016 alone, the Obama administration dropped at least 26,171 bombs. This means that every day last year, the US military blasted combatants or civilians overseas with 72 bombs; that’s three bombs every hour, 24 hours a day.

While most of these air attacks were in Syria and Iraq, US bombs also rained down on people in Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. That’s seven majority-Muslim countries.

One bombing technique that President Obama championed is drone strikes. As drone-warrior-in-chief, he spread the use of drones outside the declared battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq, mainly to Pakistan and Yemen. Obama authorized over 10 times more drone strikes than George W Bush, and automatically painted all males of military age in these regions as combatants, making them fair game for remote controlled killing.

President Obama has claimed that his overseas military adventures are legal under the 2001 and 2003 authorizations for the use of military force passed by Congress to go after al-Qaida. But today’s wars have little or nothing to do with those who attacked the United States on September 11, 2001.

The twisted legal architecture the Obama administration has constructed to justify its interventions, especially extrajudicial drone killings with no geographic restrictions, will now be transferred into the erratic hands of Donald Trump.

 

What does the administration have to show for eight years of fighting on so many fronts? Terrorism has spread, no wars have been “won” and the Middle East is consumed by more chaos and divisions than when candidate Barack Obama declared his opposition to the invasion of Iraq.

Just unadulterated bad faith. Absolutely zero interest in any legitimate discussion. 

This is what happens when you don't have principles.  They only believe in white supremacy, whether they know it or not.
