The Dailywire is pushing their narrative a bit too far I think   

Ryan Saavedra
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4572812/Breitbart-staff-appalled-tweets-amid-London-terror.html

but yes, her comments could be viewed as incitement.   

Speaking of incitement,
https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/donald-trump-incitement-violence/

Perhaps former FLOTUS Michelle Obama had the best advice, "When they go low, we go high."

Otherwise, if they aren't already, they are going to find themselves in a race to the bottom.

Travel ban upheld by Supreme Court. Notice it doesn't say Muslim ban as been stated by some.

I think that's the 10th time you've posted that link in response to an article authored by Saavedra MM.  Have you considered putting it in your signature block? ;)

Some whataboutisim with that but I think what she did rates a bit higher than just the typical rethoric. I hope she gets in a lot of crap for running her mouth like that.

She likely will. Unlike a few others on the other political spectrum.

I was also agreeing with this,

The Dailywire is pushing their narrative a bit too far I think

Daily Wire - False stories
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Daily_Wire#False_stories

QUOTE

According to Snopes, "DailyWire.com has a tendency to share stories that are taken out of context or not verified."[11] Among the falsehoods published on The Daily Wire include protesters digging up Confederate graves, Democratic congresspeople refusing to stand for a fallen Navy SEAL's widow, and Harvard University holding segregated commencement ceremonies.[11]

FactCheck.Org found that The Daily Wire was the source of a false story which credited Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson with finding over $500 billion in accounting errors made by the Obama administration. FactCheck.org found that the errors were discovered and published by HUD's independent inspector general before Carson became secretary.[12]

The Daily Wire has published a number of articles which cast doubt that climate change is occurring and that humans contribute to climate change. Experts have described the articles as inaccurate and misleading.[13][14][15]

Anyone who tries to incite harassment or assault should be dealt with by the law. Maybe it's time Americans cut back on being so polarized and stated treating each other more humainely.


Only when you post him as your source.  :)


Why though?
Wouldn't posting your own insight and views be a better  addition to the conversation here than just reposting the same link over and over?



True to form President Trump took to Twitter to respond calling her low iq and saying "Be careful what you wish for Max!”.

Im not really surprised but the media seems to be concentrating on Trump's" threat" (careful what you wish for) and not Mrs Waters for inciting harassment and trying to deny public services to people.

I've never asked why you quote an individual who tweets this sort of thing, "People think I'm kidding when I say this but the crusades need to come back."

I post stories from the dailywire which includes Ryan as an author. The stories I post where upon he is the author are not solely covered by him, I just like the Dailywire and usually read it first. You do you and I'll do me I guess  ;D
I'll PM you about something as well.

Could President Trump get a second pick for the Supreme Court?

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/06/27/justice-kennedy-retiring-opening-supreme-court-seat/952716001/

He better hope he can get one before the primaries.  If the primaries don't go his way, you know the Democrats will do exactly what McConnell did to Obama.

Yeah, difference is that McConnell stonewalled for a year.  The Dems would have to Stonewall for almost 2.

If the dem's lose seats in the Senate in November the Republicans can force their SCOTUS choice through.They wont stand for another conservative otherwise.

So no de-nuclearisation?

What about the cancelled wargames?  Still cancelled or back on?

Looks like Kim got what he wanted.

No panic.  Some people have been anticipating this. 

Why would one upgrade ones facilities after committing to dismantle their nuclear program?

And I think time is exactly what NK is banking on...

The ol satellite images out of Washington. :Tin-Foil-Hat:

But really, it's sad at how many Americans are probably happy to read that headline and excited about the possibility of Trumps negotiation not working.

The difference is that DT will just as quickly turn around and crank up the sanctions on NK and won't dither doing it. The US has given up little to get this far, the Wargames had just finished, so they have a full year to assess NK actions before actually stopping them. I suspect NK will play along hoping to out wait Trump and then back to business as usual.

First of all, they weren't really negotiations. NK came to the table with a proposal and then Trump gave away a bunch of extra stuff.

Second. We're not "happy" but we are ready to unload a whupa** full of "I told you so."   ;D

Too early though. We'll wait.

The President of the United States is speaking in Fargo North Dakota tonight (its on youtube on the Trump TV Network if anyone is interested). Since I'm from just north of there and know a few folks from the Dakotas I'm curious as to what he'll say tonight being so close to Canada.

I hope this is as entertaining as North Carolina was. :pop:
