Well Chadwickus I hate to burst youre bubble but SOME of us have friends and I'm sorry that you've chosen to back the wrong horse but every flower has its day. But while your chewing the fat so to speak and cogitating on thing that are simply part of a broader plan I can advise you that sometimes things aren't what they seem and sometimes things are what they seem but, sometimes what things seem to be arent what you expected at least not as long as they seemed to be what you thought.

Think about it.

Hating Trump and supporting Hillary has become the popular thing to do, and people just follow trends because they want to be accepted and liked.

After the elections, when it was clear that Hillary won the popular vote, it just solidified their notion that its more popular to support Hillary, so they continued to do so.

Sadly, that really is all it has come down to because people are simplistic idiots.


So its just the popular thing to do? Its not because Trump is wrong but just that its popular to hate him?

A belated Star and Flag for your wonderful Opening Post!

Some of the losers will have problems the rest of their lives related to the 2016 election. Their internal (mostly hidden) mental dysfunctions started on 11.9.2016 and will be the catalyst for divorces, dying too soon from diseases, substance abuse, etc..

You're a birther, aren't you?

I believe in birthing and that it is a woman's right to choose however this comes at a price. If a woman chooses to become pregnant than she must continue the pregnancy to gestation. Their are few things as abhorrant in this world as the precept of abortion and I'm sorry if that makes me a birther than yes I plead guilty.

By the way you'll notice I didnt plead the 5th alot of great men did but I'm unashamed to be who I am and stuck to my conviction.

You are technically correct the only differences being conservatives want to make money the old way through guns, oil, outright war, and by screwing over the average citizen. Progressives want to invest in the technology of the future, education, preventative defense and numerous other ventures.

If your talking about King Hussein Obamas birth certificate than I can guarantee you he doesn't have one. Unless your looking for the word BORN IN KENYA on it. One thing I know for certain is that Obama (FORMER "president" BTW because he lost in a landslide to Donald J Trump, or dont you read the news?) was born in Kenya, shipped to Hawaii, coerced his way into congress through blackmail and strongarm tactics, promised an infinite rain to Hillary Clinton before the people rose up and called out the MSM and said ENOUGH!

Anti-Trumpism is Fanaticism.

Trump’s supporters have been called a cult (among other things) for defending the sitting president, or for finding no fault where others find all sorts of outrage. Sometimes the criticism is valid. But I have to wonder why the uncompromising, obsessive, and paranoid anti-Trumpists seem more likely to drink the cyanide kool-aid.



First, a note about the quality of the arguments and outrage: Anti-trumpism is the fast food of moral posturing. What comes out of it is always prepackaged, limp, soft, and stomach-churning, but customers are still lovin’ it as much as they did when they had their first taste. We can turn on the TV to watch the same late-night television host (notwithstanding their political donations and affiliations) flip the same mediocre, tasteless, and overplayed burgers, to the same clone of an easily satisfied consumer. The vain attempts to horde snigggers by way of bullying and snide cruelty are too contrived, too forced, thrown together with a stack of stale and fake ingredients, and sold to dupes and addicts through a multi-million dollar public relations budget.

But that’s just me. The mediocrity and moral turpitude of anti-Trumpism is a matter of taste, after all, and ridiculing the tastes of an anti-trumpist is like ridiculing a teenage girl for liking Justin Bieber. On the other hand, perhaps it isn’t a matter of taste, but a coping mechanism for deeper issues.

According to the American Psychological Association, Post-Election Stress Disorder is a real phenomenon. More than half of Americans reported that the 2016 US election was stressful and led to stress-related symptoms. 72% of Democrats and 26% of Republicans reported that the outcome—Trump’s win—was a significant source of stress. 66% of Americans (both Democrats and Republicans) reported that thoughts regarding the future of the nation was another significant headspring of their tensions. In combination with social media, which only aggravates stress further, a significant amount of anti-Trump folks are ripe for the physical, emotional and behavioural problems associated with stress.

And who can blame them? Trump’s presidency and the future of the country has been thrown into dystopian status by unaccountable journalists, intellectuals, unelected bureaucrats, and celebrities. Prophecies of fascism, internment camps, Nazis, religious persecution, race wars, nuclear war, civil war and Hitler, were beaten into the heads of trusting media consumers. Any positive reporting throughout the campaign, or anything that is positive in outlook towards the future, is near impossible to find. With the media’s depressing fortune-telling, in combination with the manic attempts of comedians and satirists to evoke complacent laughter, a bi-polar wave crashes over the shore of paranoia.

Effectual methods of coping with stress include adopting a positive outlook, or finding commonality with others, but finding commonality with a mortal enemy is difficult. The APA suggests cutting back on the intake of news, but such is impossible when the news is the source of everything one knows and holds dear. Thus the retreat into the ineffectual methods of coping with stress: denial, blame, anger, magical thinking, projection and worse.


“Historians in the near future will mark today, March 28, 2017, as the day the extinction of human life on earth began, thanks 2 Donald Trump” - Michael Moore


"But Michael, if humans are extinct, how will historians mark the day?"

Turn on social media to discover an unhealthy obsession with Trump’s tweets, which has been the top story of even the most professional news outlets for too long. Given the claims of his cult of personality and thin skin, one might expect an army of fawning sycophants praising their dear leader in the feed, while the critics remain banned or blocked from responding. Instead, it is the exact opposite: a myriad of fame-seeking backbiters clamouring for exposure, vying for top spot on the anti-trump gravy train like too many have done before them. Whether for followers or for coping with stress, at what point is this obsessive-compulsive?

Philosopher George Santayana once wrote “Fanaticism consists in redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim”. And who remembers the aim of anti-Trumpism? It had something to do with Mexican rapists, sexual assault and Vladimir Putin (or was it Rosie O’Donnel?). Each outrage was forgotten about in days and replaced by a brand new one, while any evidence to the contrary, the clarifying statements, the explanations, the other side of the story, and anything that might shed doubt on their narrative, was conveniently missing in favour of the yellow journalism they are now wedded to. In the last analysis, they have only redoubled their efforts. And their aim? To cope with the self-induced stress they are now left to deal with.

We have protesters, activists, and their celebrity handlers operating under the delusion they are fighting against oppression, or at least some future form of it, when they couldn’t point to an oppressive thing outside their own emotions, their reaction to words, their puerile prophecies, and the sensationalism that exploits them. Anti-Trumpism is fanaticism.

Its sad and disheartening, to see one man, make a bunch of mortals on a forum think about him day and night.Tragic to the brain it is.

It is interesting how people like to pass judgement on each other, as if their thoughts/feelings actually matter to the recipient(s).

I was once a CNN addict. Now it turns my stomach.

I was once a Hillary supporter and anti-Trump person. Now I can see where the left meets the left hand path.

The Democratic Party in the wake of that historic loss, should have been at war, with itself, to recreate itself, but instead all we got was Russia Russia Russia and the ex DOJ head calling for blood in the streets.

Trump may be a bit of a dolt, and not the most articulate person in the world, but what the left has done is absolutely disgraceful.

There's a silver lining in the cloud however, in so far as they and their complicit MSM and celebrity culture have completely betrayed themselves and their insanity.

God how I pray that the investigation and prosecution of corruption and unspeakable evil, takes down the so-called "elite", on all sides.

We need a quiet or not so quiet revolution to restore the once proud Republic and the light of Liberty.

The way this whole thing has been handled is just an abomination.

To see creepy crawly fingered Joe Biden come out to talk about how he should be president and why Clinton lost, is just so pathetic it makes me want to puke.

I think that Trump and the new administration should give them a scandal the likes of which we've never seen, and it won't have anything to do with Russia.

It's so transparent now, what the sickos and freaks are up to, and it's dangerous to the future state of the Democratic Republic of the USA.

George Soros and that goof David Brock ought to be taken down and arrested.

To then see the big tech giants climbing aboard, folks like Twitter's Jack Dorsey (who loves the Satanic verses and the good good pasta), just goes to show how the whole system is corrupt.

And just who was Barack Obama anyway, since his long form birth cert is a proven fake document.

Turn the whole damn thing upside down, and let these people just fall and may the beast in the system be bound and double bound, by it's own hand, with unbreakable chains of evidence, reason and logic, to slide headlong, squealing, into the abyss.

It's just so messed up. Get a grip on reality again USA, for the love of God and people and for the sake of everything that's reasonable and that's worth living for and taking a stand to uphold.

Enough is enough!

You're most welcome.

Hate cannot trump love. I must not hate, I must not hate. Then it just morphs.

There, temper tantrum averted. Phew!

What they're doing is very dangerous, because it contains the seeds of a type of fascism and the desire to thought-control and censor opposing views.

They've lost the narrative, and their minds.

You are the most claritied writer on this whole forum. I got shiver bumps reading what you said because its all true! I knew from the beginining that King Hussein Obama was a fraud and you just proven everything I ever read!

If you were a wary wanderer I'd welcome you into my hut and offer you wine. Together we would form a pact a treaty. We would agree par for, and I would give you the lions share for I trust in a man that says the truth without false dickery.

YES Obama (King Hussein) is a fraud! Why do they not listen?

YES President Trump is the new commandant of everything that I stand for and when I stand I want it to count. I am not interested in what may be right today but wrong tomorrow!

King Obamas' long form birth cert is a proven fraud for decades that is what we have been warned about in the quatrains!

How many times have I prayed silently with a teardrop under my eye to be heard? My pain? My struggle?!

Together we can strike down The beast in the system and WIN! With courage!

TAKE it seriously people!!
