If he and his family and toadies would shut up and go away I would let it go. But as long as he is still out there peddling his election lies and destroying the Party I grew up a member of, I am going to continue enjoying his downfall.  I'll shut up when he shuts up.

And again.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/judge-holds-trump-contempt-failing-164041262.html

His defense was that the documents asked for where in the possession of the Trump Corporation and not in his possession, so he could not turn them over. He has no control over what the Trump Corporation does.

Well he can't provide the documents because he tore them all up by hand and the Trump organization doesn't have a phalanx of designated paper tapers.

You mean "Trump Delusion Syndrome," where perfectly intelligent people fall under the delusion that Donald J. Trump was a decent President and/or a decent human being?  Sorry, Crunch, but I don't think he's the one who has it.  ;) ;D

Trump Delusion Syndrome refers to people like you who hate Trump because of disinformation. You've been snookered by your own side, who laugh at you as their "idiot morons": cannon fodder to their power grabs. Trump was a decent President. Name one President who honored his promises before his election better than Trump did. Your side loved Trump before he chose to run on the GOP ticket. Odd that such a perceived slap in the face means he is the one who behaves with vitriol.

As for fear of Trump (another symptom of TDS), he is far superior in protecting the Constitution and our citizens than you guys. There would have been no border incursion, Afghanistan surrender, nor war in Ukraine had Biden not vote-scammed the election.
 
The good news is that the populace sees this and the poll numbers reflect what will happen in the midterm and in 2024. The Democrat Party is in full retreat, with defections to the GOP from those hoping to stay in office. The collusionists who lied about Trump are fearing indictments after the GOP regains the majority. They, not Trump, lied about Russian collusion and the Russian bank scandal. Sussman was already seen to be guilty, and his claim to not have been paid by Hillary was blown up by a stupid Hillary claiming attorney/client privilege.

However; there are still plenty of pathetic attacks aimed at Trump and his family and associates, which will probably all be overturned by honest courts. The Dems are all quaking in their boots now that the GOP have pledged to fully investigate and bring them to justice. I don't know if Pelosi, Schumer, Shiff, Comey, Hillary, and the other liars and inveiglers will get perp-walked to prison in orange jump-suits because of their paid-for enablers, but we shall see. Were I you, perhaps a little common-sense might be in order.

Let's note that Trump detractors, if that is "our side" are a big tent. They include Michael Bolton, James Mattis, John Kelly, HR McMaster, Omarosa Manigault Newman, Gary Cohn, Rex Tillerson.... basically everyone who isn't a Trump worshipping sychophant.

I never loved Trump. His show sucked, his businesses regularly failed, he was always a pompous self aggrandizing ass.

As to his promises:

The Wall:
How much did Trump spend on the border wall that Mexico was going to pay for? How many miles got put up? And how many holes have been cut in it already? Or how many toddlers have climbed over?
 
Tax returns:
Still waiting to see those, he really wants to keep them hidden. Pretty surprising for the most transparent president ever.


I addressed two promises, were there others you were thinking of? Care to tackle those points or either of these two issues in relation your presidential hero.

Business interests:
How much did foreign governments and sovereign wealth funds spend buying and renting Trump properties during his presidency? I know the Qatar sovereign wealth fund rented a good chunk of a building in San Francisco and left it empty. Wonder what value they were getting from that investment.

Advisors:
Name a single president who has had a revolving door of people leaving office and writing books about how horrible the president who they worked for was? Do you read the books written by people who left the administration?

Some of the evidence made public by James in January revealed the ridiculous lengths which Trump went to inflate the value of his properties, including one instance in which he lied by simply tripling the size of his already humongous three-story penthouse at Trump Tower.

I somehow missed that nuance until now. HA HA HA! My penthouse apartment in Yuuuuge!

I can see that you mention Trump in very nearly every single post you make, tying him to even the most random things. I can see you doing it over an extended period of time. Hell, everyone can see that. We all, actually, know about you and if we're being honest then we all know you need some therapy.

I don't hate it, it's actually pretty amusing to see the convoluted logic and blueanon conspiracy theory woven together. I quite enjoy your trip into mental breakdown from a purely rational perspective.

I think you need help. You are clearly having obsessive, paranoid, thoughts. You're fixated. It's not healthy and, Mark, I encourage you to get professional help.

You mean the wall that the Dems did everything to derail? Just look at what Biden did within days of being sworn in. Yeah, let's close down all the wall-building contracts that took years to clear all the nuisance lawsuits, thereby throwing thousands out of work, leaving the border open, and leaving paid-for and already delivered supplies to ort or be stolen. The overworked border agents have been ridiculed and insulted non-stop, unable to cover the millions of illegals who want to bring in drugs and human-smuggling - and allowing the drug cartels to get even richer and more in charge.
 
Tax returns:
Still waiting to see those, he really wants to keep them hidden. Pretty surprising for the most transparent president ever.

He gave you more than past presidents every handed over, yet you obsess on minutiae when Hunter's laptop confirmed the Biden Crime Family taking millions if not billions from enemies everywhere. The difference for you apologists, is that Trump worked for a living and made more money than Dems who just scammed from the government trough. You just want fishing expeditions to create strawman problems. Show us Pelosi's portfolio and maybe you's have a comparative idea.

I addressed two promises, were there others you were thinking of? Care to tackle those points or either of these two issues in relation your presidential hero.

You've got the wrong list. You should comment on everything he did, in spite of the Democrats and Never-Trumpers dragging their feet and doing all they could to get in the way.

Unleashed America’s oil and natural gas potential.

    For the first time in nearly 70 years, the United States has become a net energy exporter.
    The United States is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world.
    Natural gas production reached a record-high of 34.9 quads in 2019, following record high production in 2018 and in 2017.
    The United States has been a net natural gas exporter for three consecutive years and has an export capacity of nearly 10 billion cubic feet per day.
    Withdrew from the unfair, one-sided Paris Climate Agreement.
    Canceled the previous administration’s Clean Power Plan, and replaced it with the new Affordable Clean Energy rule.
    Approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.
    Opened up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska to oil and gas leasing.

    LNG exports are expected to reduce the American trade deficit by over $10 billion.
    Granted more than 20 new long-term approvals for LNG exports to non-free trade agreement countries.
    The development of natural gas and LNG infrastructure in the United States is providing tens of thousands of jobs, and has led to the investment of tens of billions of dollars in infrastructure.
    There are now 6 LNG export facilities operating in the United States, with 2 additional export projects under construction.
    The amount of nuclear energy production in 2019 was the highest on record, through a combination of increased capacity from power plant upgrades and shorter refueling and maintenance cycles.

I would refute any of that laundry list if I thought it would lead to a discussion in good faith. Like pointing out that "opportunity zones" and a lot of other things on that list were simply giving tax breaks to the reach with vague promises of it "trickling down". In many cases they went to developers who already had plans, which is erroneously counted as "jobs created". He certainly increased the number of people employed by people getting huge tax breaks. Other items don't even reflect any value that I hold. I don't want more oil and gas, I want less of it. I want it choked off and wiped out. I want fuel to triple in price.

The fact that you think America leads the world in 5G is delusional. South Korea holds that crown.

It sort of looks like this list was cribbed from an obscure italian blogger. But perhaps it is a rebroadcast of material from Trump Social.

That is from the official White House website cataloging the Trump accomplishments. Nothing posted because of opinion - just pure metrics.

Please examine the Biden White House website and look at the lack of accomplishments. If you find anything, remember Biden is a plagiarist and liar, so check the Trump list and see what Biden claims as his, that Trump actually did.

I don't care what Trump says Trump did. I pointed out two specific instances where he made high profile promises repeatedly and failed to deliver. Your response was democrats stopped the wall. In the areas where the wall was finished it didn't stop crossings. It has been breached multiple times and Mexico didn't pay. Its why we shouldn't spend hundreds of billions on a border wall. As to the taxes and financial records Trump provided the minimum required by law, not more than any other candidate in history. Unless you simply want to count the number of pages because Trump maintained his controlling interest in his business while being President. His finances are complicated therefore required more pages of required disclosure.

The wall money would have been better spent in a lot of ways. But how about on renewable energy and electric cars. We see the dire national security and economic consequences of relying on Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Russia, and Iran to provide the world with energy supplies. What did Trump do on that? Tried to role back environmental and fuel efficiency standards that Obama put in.

If you want to discuss a topic, discuss it. I'm never going to engage with that data dump of copy and paste, I don't care where its from.

But that's what you just did. Admit it. Trump's promises to make Mexico pay for the wall was slowed because of Democrat foot-dragging - yet he went around them and got Mexico to pay in kind in trade concessions and providing Mexican soldiers to patrol on their side of the wall. He explains it in depth in almost every rally he gives, yet you've never heard it or understood it at all.

I challenge you to look at that "data dump" you are so frightened of. Item after item. Pure unchallengeable metrics that you cannot argue out of existence. You especially missed all those things that Trump accomplished that the plagiarist, Biden, said he did.

How about a sample of your own verity? Explain the one statement that the average American family saved $2,500 a year in lower electric bills and lower prices at the gas pump.

I don't take Trump's word for Trump's accomplishments. Just like I don't take his word that he is a "stable genius". How did the Democrats prevent Trump from getting Mexico to pay for the wall? They prevented him from wasting tax payer money on it. Last time I checked Republicans had full control of the house and senate for the first two years of Trump's term and budget reconciliation (which the wall could be built under isn't part of the filibuster). Mexico's trade "concessions" had nothing to do with the wall or did anything to get direct payments to the American government for construction of a wall that took only a few months to be repeatedly breached. I'm sure all the American service men whose base housing, schools, and facilities weren't upgraded are really happy that Trump took 4 billion from them to put towards his pet project that provides no safety or benefit to the country.

Okay what is the source of $2,500 a year in lower electric bills and gas prices? I will look at any single item or two you want to discuss. I'm not going to play whack-a-mole from a giant list you just pasted in from somewhere else. Would you defend Trump as a honest man if I posted the 10,000 lies the Washington Post accumulated? Or would you want me to identify lies I thought were important and substantive (because many on the list of lies aren't either).

Definitely. I can do so because I vetted those disinformational "lies" as they were made. Most are the same accusations over and over, and when totally refuted were added as another lie because they differed from the disinformation.

Here is what you back:
In four years, President Trump made 30,573 false or misleading claims

Mixed bag for Mr. Trump in the primaries. Cawthorn, known for weapons violations, bizarre claims about cocaine orgies, and his endorsement by Trump, has lost. The great and powerful Oz appears slightly ahead, but there will be recounts. Nobody seems to be concerned about fraud in those mail-in ballots or extended counting. Must be because all Republicans are above reproach, well except for the ones who have been caught committing fraud.

So how many points will Perdue loose by today?  Trumps record in opposed primarys is not all that great. He had a win in Ohio and it is a tie so far in PA. He lost big in NE and lost a close one with Cawthorn in NC and will loose big again today in GA.

So Trump's candidates in GA lost by even more than was expected.  Now the question is will he support Kemp against Abrams.  Or course not. Trump is all about personal loyalty and nothing else.

Last summer, spurred by evidence uncovered in James' civil investigation, the Manhattan district attorney's office charged the Trump Organization and its longtime finance chief, Allen Weisselberg, with tax fraud, alleging he collected more than $1.7 million in off-the-books compensation. Weisselberg and the company have pleaded not guilty.

While we're on the subject, does anyone think Alan didn't get a bunch of shady money? Even trump's supporters seem to be using the selective prosecution argument, not the it didn't happen argument.

Because in GA Purdue actually won, if you get rid of the bogus votes of people that voted for Kemp. Same for Cawthorn and all of the others Trump supported and lost. They only lost because of cheating by the other side.

When he heard that Michael Sussmann was acquitted of lying to the FBI, which supposedly caused him to be illegally surveilled, Trump reacted with his usual equanimity:

Quote
Our Legal System is CORRUPT, our Judges (and Justices!) are highly partisan, compromised or just plain scared, our Borders are OPEN, our Elections are Rigged, Inflation is RAMPANT, gas prices and food costs are “through the roof,” our Military “Leadership” is Woke, our Country is going to HELL, and Michael Sussmann is not guilty. How’s everything else doing? Enjoy your day!!!

He sounds like one of those angry old men from The Villages who chases kids off his lawn.  Did Trump recently move from Mar-A-Lago?  ???

Not directly Trump losing but it was inspired by him. So a loss for him.

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/supreme-court-blocks-texas-law-targeting-social-media-companies-212601246.html

No, not a loss for Trump ` just an indication of how the Left uses laws and rules designed for something else to be high-jacked and abused. ...Not a loss - because the attention is no longer hidden. The main charge is that these media monopolies are targeting Conservative posters. We all, as well as they, know that to be true. Does anyone disagree? In a Free Enterprise system, the answer is for the marketplace to work its magic. It will fix itself, but it will take time.

Pelosi will soon be out. Since the Democrats, once they gained power, used every opportunity they could muster to demonize and punish conservatives and Libertarians - The new majority may well justifiably dispense with comity and put some of the worst Democrats where they belong. It would do the nation a world of good to see Hillary and all her friends in orange jumpsuits being perp-walked to the short bus. However; if all the dirty Dems are indicted and found guilty, we may need a whole fleet of full-sized prison buses to take them away.

Look. You all know what Sussman did, and that Hillary was driving it. No one thinks the judge, whose wife was the lawyer for the hard-hearted Hannah of the FBI, made an honest legal decision. The next few Hoffman decisions won't be in DC.
