I've been seeing reporting on Russia offering bounties to Taliban fighters in Afghanistan for American soldiers killed. I can't find any info on when this started - ongoing, in the past, what? Anyhoo, you-know-who was apparently briefed on this months ago but mum's the word from him. Now congress has been made aware.
No surprise, the current MO is ignore anything you don't want to deal with. And when that won't work, deny it. Whoopee.
ETA: The latest I saw said the bounty offer happened "last year", wasn't more specific.
I'm probably superstitious but I'm uncomfortable about all the press on how bad Trump is doing. I remember 2016 when everyone thought he couldn't win and it turned out he did win. The articles all sound so gleeful and I'm concerned they aren't seeing other factors that might impact the election.
bbbearsmom, me too, but I don't think anyone is forgetting what happened in 2016. A good thing that we are uncomfortable. Every report on a poll that I've seen invariably ends with "the election is 5 months away, anything can happen between then and now."
To those who continue to wave and display the rebel flag, stay off the interstate, please. Those roads were paid for with money from United States taxpayers, not only rebel sore losers.
In real life there are winners and losers. You lost! Get over it.
This is the USA. Flying any other flag is unpatriotic, disgraceful, insulting, and a slap in the face to those who lost their lives, limbs, hearts and souls fighting to defend Old Glory. It's also an obnoxious display of disrespect to the families and friends of true patriots and winners.
You are an embarrassment. You look foolish waving the rebel flag and far, far from a patriot.
Don't mess with older people. The older we get the less "life in prison" is a deterrent.
I think he's saying that they have been allowed to marry for longer than the Confederacy was in existence. The confederacy existed from 1861 to 1865 and the Supreme Court gay marriage decision was in 2015, so it is close.
So Trump tweeted a video of a supporter screaming white supremacy at a "left" protester, and "thanks the great people"... anyone shocked?
Folks are already tweeting that the shout of "white power" at the beginning of the video was obviously sarcastic. As an actual sarcastic person, that's not how this works.
haha who would believe that the shout out of white power is sarcastic when coming from an old white male in an embarrassing american flag colored outfit and american flags all over his golf cart during the "anti- anti-racist golf cart parade to counter a BLM anti-trump protest"?
