Don't forget the Russian co-signers for Trump loans either.

Oh and the fake story about children born to military people and diplomats overseas not being Citizens.

Both stories have been setting high level Democrats on fire and other Democrats are falling for all this BS 🤣 🤣 🤣

Something big is ready to hit the news and they're getting people all buttered up for the party.

The media has some systemic issues with reality. The way the world has evolved with a culture and law that you do not talk about some subjects has resulted in a case of mass deception. Some of this was done through design using fear, intimidation and firings for political and economic advantage. It has grown over time and resulted in things like the Trump Russian Ridicules narrative.

A media policy moving away from fact and evidence based reporting to an opinion style has resulted in an argumentative I am right you are wrong culture. Reporting of the real and important facts has been lost in a maze of confusion, allegations and butt covering of the highest order.

One practical lesson you can learn from articles like this is who do you trust? Stop wasting your time on the rubbish that is out there. If you do rely on this news source then be aware of the political bias that is all too common and scared to confront the real problems. With the legal system going through its own similar problems with integrity it does set the standard with social discourse.

If you believe that that picture is an accurate representation of the country's political populations, why would you oppose eliminating the electoral college?

Unless, perhaps you realize that land, and there's lots of land in those red areas, doesn't vote. People vote, and the bulk of the US population live in coastal areas.



So you are saying that everyone in the country has to bow down to the people of a few highly populated areas that do not even produce the foods they consume? So the majority of our country will have no say so how their own state is run?

The electoral college was created so that couldn't happen, so every state has some say so. This is the United States of America, not a few big cities and their bitches.

The headline paints him as a racist attacking AOC, Democrats, and the squad.

That is far from the actual quote.


Yes: agreed to ignore the MSM's interpretation of it.
Meant to include the actual quote from your OP, but as you can see: it didn't repost.
Here it is again:

"Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently called for abolishing the Electoral College. Remind her that this country belongs to AMERICANS from EVERY zip code, not just the Coastal Elites and Liberal Mega Donors. This is our country, not theirs," the Trump campaign petition said, directing supporters to sign.


Do we know if that is the entire email ?
Sorry for being a bit argumentative: but the explanation of ..."...theirs..."... either makes reference to another unknown subject of the email, or is a contradiction of the first half.

He does include them as Americans in his "not just" statement.

So the second part is restating the first... this country belongs to us all.

Yes, agreed a little unclear if you isolate it like the 5 second rage bait MSM headline, but in full context it becomes clear(er).

He's addressing her wanting to abolish the electoral college and have the few Leftwing Costal rich "elite" control the entire country... so yes. I agree with him!

This paints the picture:



That's a good map, can also be used as what the future civil war would look like(tim pool seems to be a believer). Basically 90 percent of the land mass against the mega cities. I don't know how anyone could look at that map and think it wouldn't be the shortest war in history. The majority of the US isn't the MSM and Twitter outrage mob that gets all the limelight.


It would be a short war alright. Most of those Eastern blue cities are powered at least partly, by natural gas. It comes to them via thousand-mile-long pipelines from the south and southwest. One break in those pipelines, anywhere along its length.... and Chicago, St. Louis, Pittsburg.....even New York.

Kind of Like a Pat Travers tune.

I'm not arguing one way or the other about the electoral college. I'm arguing over the subtle exclusionary code that insinuates that this country isn't AOC's country.

The agreement of the subtle meaning was also displayed when the OP posted the red vs blue map of the US, as if red is the majority that "owns" this country. That betrays his defense of the Electoral College.

It's one thing to disagree with AOC about the Electoral College, lots of people do, but it's not like this debate is brand new, either. Refusing to debate and branding people with different opinions as not belonging, rather than debating the issue openly, is unamerican.

I wouldn't sweat it. Trump relishes every moment they talk about him. He doesn't give a damn if it is negative or positive as long as they are talking about him. This was literally how he got elected in 2016 and the dimwit leftist media instead of realizing their fatal error have gone ahead and decided to double down on their utter ineptitude and obliviousness.

You're mental gymnastics are head-ache making.

Those in the blue pretend they are all that matter. They control the MSM, and the Dems (and many Republicans too).

The Electoral College AOC wants to do away with PROTECTS those in the red.

In other words, the later is a subset of the former.

I don't know why you guys keep ignoring that part.

I should probably thank you.

You help me understand what it must really have been like in the mind of nearly every perpetrator of injustice of great historical significance.

Actually, the reason for this thread is because of all the people who have interpreted the statement exactly as I see it. Stephen Miller is good with words, and he knew exactly what he was doing when he wrote that.

No this thread is because the headline takes 6 words, out of context claiming trump is a racist attacking AOC, the Dems, and the group of four...

The 5 second rage bating headline is all most people ever read, and believe. And then it is re-tweeted and reposted all over the internet... all lies.

The rest is your twisting.

Satan-owned media now returning to Immigration for Trump-bashing.

Liberal MSM spinning the termination of "medical hardship" exemptions for Illegal Aliens, to "Trump ejecting sick immigrants from the U.S.!"

ABC Exclusive: abcnews.go.com...

The rest will pile on, with even bigger lies.

I am a straight white man who is prejudice to no one!. I however didn't receive the memo that it doesn't matter. So what do I do from here? shoot myself?..or bow down to everyone who was done wrong hundreds of years ago?.I am currently quite confused in this age of tolerance and equality. Someone please explain how I should best punish myself, for crimes I did not commit. Willing and waiting....

Thanks for explaining, and agree with all of it, except the 'clearer' part.

Who is this ..."...theirs..."... , to whom the country is not ?

Could imagine that if the word 'alone' was added after 'theirs': then that would make more sense for me.
Is it a question of interpretation, sorta like that ?

Maybe we're all having communication shortfalls, and not understanding each-other because of that ?
