whats really funny to me is some vets I served with are all bent out of shape over this, and when I ask in all seriousness do you really think Clinton, or Bush Jr or Obama gave a hoot if you lived or died, I get crickets.

The current state of our nation is that we in the military are political pawns and nothing more, why else do you think there is so much ra ra stuff all the time.

I figured that out not long after my first re-enlistment, once upon a time they cared but certainly not during my years in or else we would have a fully functional VA, we wouldnt have to fight like hell to get disability ratings, we wouldnt have 22 a day crossing over.

So spare me the fake outrage over a statement he may or may not have said, cause until someone says I was standing right there when he said it on this day and time I have no choice but to assume after pelosi hair gate coupled with 60 days prior to the election this is a pure politicial hit piece.

Even if he did say it, read what I said again it doesnt matter because none of them care, even the veterans that have gotten into congress have done precious little to improve things for those that served and are still serving.


Posted this in the other thread, they dont care none of them.

Clearly, Bolton isn't a fan of Trump, but he's pretty much confirming Trump's story here.

" The allegations were reported in The Atlantic. A senior Defense Department official with firsthand knowledge of events and a senior U.S. Marine Corps officer who was told about Trump’s comments confirmed some of the remarks to The Associated Press, including the 2018 cemetery comments. '

What are their Names ? Do Not Know ? Thought So .............FAKE NEWS .

And why no leaks when it happened?
That would have been a huge story "at the time" 😆😆


Exactly. Political expediency. Notice how quickly the Biden ads showed up exploiting the theme of the story? The exact same day. How expedient of the party to have the infrastructure in place to roll out *new* ads on the same topic as featured in The Atlantic.... and during COVID, at that. Amazingly nimble, almost as though it was already in the queue, waiting for Biden's foray into the public arena, moments of reading teleprompters, shuffling crib sheets to find his talking points before answering the question, being confused over what to do next when a gig concludes.

We ain't seen nothing, yet. As fatigue begins to wear him down now that he's out-and-about, perception will become even more fabricated. Carefully orchestrated moments, stories, accusations that serve to down play Biden's diminished capacity, and force media-whiplash over to Trump.

At this point in the campaign, it is ONLY about winning those few thousands impressionable voters in key states. Millions and millions and millions and millions of dollars will be spent targeting those states, in an attempt to grab a few thousand votes that will deliver the electoral college win.

Not sure if the rules of engagement this election year mirror Capture the Flag, or Dodgeball.

As a veteran I don't believe for a second he said what he said. It just seems so obviously constructed. As alluded to several times in the thread, it was put out there as a distraction for Nancy Pelosi being caught showing how this Covid crap is B.S.

Pelosi is 80 years old and supposedly part of the age group which can be negatively affected by this novel virus. I would think she would be masked as often as possible if this Covid was as deadly as it has been purported to be. We are being played so badly and too many people are blinded by their own stupidity to see the writing on the wall.

Complacency is the proper attitude people if you want to go forward and be even more subjugated to the state! WAKE THE F UP PEOPLE!

This sort of anonymous trash "reporting" will happen almost every day from now until election day. The Atlantic is well known as a liberal/leftist mouthpiece with a bias so deep it is crystal clear to everyone who reads it.

I expect more and more anonymous sources to say more and more outrageous things about Trump, like the fake golden showers. No Democratic President in recent history has supported the military and most tried to defund the military (Clinton/Obama) even in the middle of a war, and everyone knows it. Only Reagan and Trump in recent history have actually supported the military, that's what makes this such an obvious fake ploy to turn conservatives away from Trump.

Problem is, the American public is not as stupid as the Democrats think they are. We are grossly insulted at the efforts to make up the worst imaginable stories and try to pass them off as true and from anonymous sources, meaning fake.

The Democrats are no holds barred in attempting to destroy every Republican and every conservative in the entire nation. They will stop at nothing to regain power. Even China, a human rights monster is supporting the Democrats and Biden openly because they don't want the US to continue unless it is socialist/communist like the Democratic Party wants to turn the nation into.

We see all of this clearly and how very much the Democratic Party openly hate 42% of the citizens in the nation (through doxing, getting them fired, destroying their businesses, social media bullying, beating those with a red hat on, etc.) and it has become an obsessive and very clear mental illness.

I fear what will happen to me and my family if the Democrats win and we become the socialist nation leaning strongly toward communism that Biden/Harris AOC and her Squad say they will transform the US into. This happened in Russia and Stalin killed tens of thousands who disagreed with him politically, same happened in China with Mao, and in Cuba with Castro.

I spoke to those anonymous sources, they admitted they lied. But they did offer a bit of news. They all agreed that Joe Biden ate a child. I can link you to proof if you like.

No quotes, no citations, no names, just gossip. These are the hills anti-Trumpers will fall upon.

Denying Reports He Disparaged Fallen Soldiers, Trump Lashes Out at John Kelly


Mr. Kelly refused on-the-record interview requests about his recollection of comments Mr. Trump had reportedly made when Mr. Kelly was with him on a 2018 trip to France. According to the report, the president said that he had decided against visiting a cemetery for American soldiers killed in World War I because “it’s filled with losers,” and that Marines slain in combat at Belleau Wood were “suckers” for getting killed.

The article also reported that during a 2017 visit to Arlington National Cemetery, Mr. Trump and Mr. Kelly stopped to pay respects at the grave of Mr. Kelly’s son, Second Lt. Robert Kelly, a Marine who was killed at age 29 in Afghanistan in 2010.

“I don’t get it. What was in it for them?” the magazine reported that Mr. Trump had said to Mr. Kelly about his son’s service and sacrifice.


Hmm, go figure why ol' Trumpy is angry at him.

Psychological Projection: Dealing With Undesirable Emotions


Psychological projection is a defense mechanism people subconsciously employ in order to cope with difficult feelings or emotions. Psychological projection involves projecting undesirable feelings or emotions onto someone else, rather than admitting to or dealing with the unwanted feelings.

After following Trump four years nothing really surprises me. ATS is run by Russian idiots, by by.

It's so obvious that he said this. What's worse is it is so easy to believe!

Yet look at all the total nonsense on "recent". Every day Trump does something impeachable... but oh nooos, a liberal somewhere said something naughty. Let's make that every headline, and totally ignore the damnable news about the over-the-top corrupt administration in power today.

Wow. That post didn’t age well, did it. This story has been thoroughly debunked. FOIA papers prove everything. Even Bolton is having to defend Trump. LMAO!
So now who is projecting?
If you don’t retract this garbage you can kiss your credibility goodbye.
You know I’m gonna throw this story up every time you post anything.
Destroying the liberal agenda is fun for me.

Exactly. Bolton has ever motivation to say Trump called them losers and suckers. Except he says that it didn’t happen.

So why would Bolton lie to cover for Trump when Bolton clearly does not like Trump?

Reading comprehension and basic logical thinking, I know you have it. I have seen you use it. Why do you try to deny that you can do it now when it goes against your narrative?

Seems to me it's your narrative that you're most concerned with.

You own the lies you repeat.
