Earlier today White House Press Secretary Jennifer Psaki falsely claimed a United States President can do nothing about gasoline prices. This is an oft familiar claim by the political left, is is also one of the more transparently false assertions in their arsenal of deceit. First, WATCH:
So what can a U.S. President and administration specifically do?
We have abundant U.S. energy resources. Quite literally the strongest in the entire world.
- Permit the use of preexisting approved leases in ANWAR (Alaska) to put more volume into the Alaskan oil pipeline that is severely underutilized.
- Finish the Dakota access pipeline.
- Re-approve the preexisting energy leases in New Mexico, Arizona, NE Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico.
- Retract the stoppage of the Keystone pipeline to permit efficient oil transport shipments from Canada.
- Stop blocking the expansion of coastal oil refineries in Texas, Louisiana and Alabama (regulatory issue), as well as Northwest, Northeast and Southeast seaboard.
- Continue to develop natural gas as a clean burning fuel.
- Drive Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as an export.
None of this requires any approval from OPEC.
“None of this requires any approval from OPEC.” Actually, when you have a corrupt puppet like idiot Biden in office, he DOES need OPEC’s approval to undo the damage OPEC had him cause on his first day in office. OPEC doesn’t want the US to be energy independent. Russia doesn’t want the US to be energy independent. China doesn’t want the US to be energy independent. Iran doesn’t want the US to be energy independent. So, the US will not be energy independent. The checks have already been cashed.
She means “Democrat” presidents and Democrat unelected dictators can’t do anything about gas prices.
Trump would. Trump did.
Nathan, I understand reality and facts are dismissed with a wave of a wand in that rabbit hole you’re confined in but no, Trump never did anything that resulted in lower gas prices. He did as he always does and took credit for something he had nothing to do with, knowing full well the his glazed over indoctrinated cult would believe his every con and cheer and praise again.
I think there may have been a mutual need of both Trump and his mindless puppets. Trump desperately needed constant applause to satisfy his sick ego and his low intellect basket of gullibles desperately needed any excuse to genuflect to their god. He’d toss some nonsensical lie and the basket would jump to their feet. Both parties would get their fix while at the same time, taking pleasure by convincing themselves of owning the libs.
Getting back to gas, no, regardless of what Curt lifts from the likes of Conservativetreehouse or other conspiracy driving outlets, the president does not control the price of gas. We’ve actually seen this movie before when it skyrocketed during the GWB era. Like then (and again, I understand you don’t expand your knowledge from the parameters of the rabbit hole), this is a global issue. I even recall actually arguing in defense of Bush that he simply couldn’t pick of the phone and tell Exxon et al to lower their prices while there was world wide demand. Even if he could, why wouldn’t Exxon turn their ships around and send them where they could get more $?
Demand for gas is up because Americans and others are springing back from lockdowns. It’s also up due to hurricane Ida. If you look at the prices of gas over the past 20 years, it’s been continuously up and down.
Of course, gas isn’t the only thing soaring.
According to Americans for Tax Fairness and the Institute for Policy Studies, the 764 American billionaires grew $2.1 trillion richer during the pandemic. They held just under $3 trillion prior to COVID and now have over $5 trillion.
The Federal Reserve Board estimates these 764 people hold nearly 70% more than over half of U.S. households.
The meat industry, which is now monopolized by 4 major corporations, is making record obscene profits while cattle producers are going bankrupt and we’re paying record high prices at the grocery.
It’s also worth noting the these 764 people are spending fortunes to discourage vaccinations and masking.
Get the picture? Denial?
The thing is, these 764 people who want to keep Americans divided, continue the virus, and point the blame to Biden, have Trump’s basket of gulibles like you to assist them.
You (“you” referring to the entire basket) do their bidding to the tee because you are cocooned from reality. Even when exposed to reality or concrete evidence you are programmed to dismiss it with contempt. You have no thought process of your own and cannot distinguish what it true and what isn’t true. You are so mesmerized by Trumpism that these 764 billionaires have full control of you to defend them from the very people who are trying to stop their sinister crimes- Biden and the Democratic Party.
“Getting back to gas, no, regardless of what Curt lifts from the likes of Conservativetreehouse or other conspiracy driving outlets, the president does not control the price of gas. ” We all know you are delusional (by choice) but you don’t have to be stupid.
The price of oil is controlled by supply. When OPEC is the supplier, THEY control the price of oil by controlling output. Increasing output reduces the price. Decreasing output raises the price.
When Trump opened US production without restraint, we no longer needed OPEC AND we were increasing world-wide production. OPEC is no longer in control. The US is. Thus, due directly to Trump’s energy policies, oil and LPG prices DROPPED. Of course, it can only drop so far, as it has to be cost effective to produce.
Remember when Russia and OPEC colluded to try and put out production out of business? They flooded the market with oil, causing the price to plunge. Why would they do that? Is US production some sort of threat to Russian and OPEC control of supplies and, thus, government policy? Trump, of course, played their game, filling our reserves with cheap oil. Game, set, match.
Little did OPEC and Russia know that all they have to do to destroy our energy production and energy independence, thus allowing them to control supplies and prices, is to put a dottering, stumbling, corrupt, lying idiot in office. For just a few million dollars, they got idiot Biden to make the US vulnerable to foreign control once again. All they needed was a bunch of stupid, ignorant, anti-American useful idiots to accept the lies about Trump and believe that a complete failure, who has been caught lying throughout his career, which is also loaded with examples of REAL racism (not the false accusations they try to adhere to Trump) actually won an election he didn’t even campaign in. Are you proud you serve a purpose, AJ?
Let’s go Brandon. Let’s go AJ, too.
Those billionaires you cited got rich on the back of a planned pandemic. They helped pay for the installation of Joe Biden. You are supporting the system. You are supporting these rich people, the globalists.
Their puppet Biden very quickly ended our energy Independence. That act alone changed our gas prices for the worser.
I don’t support billionaires or the oil industry or any of these unelected moguls who spend billions to sculpt governments to their liking.
That’s why I voted for Donald Trump, and will again in 2024.
As for you, you are an indoctrinated mindless Left-wing cultist cuck who needs to concern himself with getting a job and being part of society rather than blathering on about things he doesn’t understand.
They’re really paying you idiot trolls to double down on this gas price thing aren’t they?
I wonder why.
The president of the United States has much control over the price of gas in the United States.
You continue to make claims that are bonkers.
here’s a saved partial list of what Trump did for the working man and what he did for his corporate donors. These are the facts.
He installed Secretary of Labor- Eugene Scalia, a man with a history of helping business clients screw over employees, weakening OSHA rules, and union busting.
Deputy Sec of Labor- Patrick Pizzella, a former employee of the National Right to Work Committee and has lobbied against raising sweatshop-level wages in American owned companies in U.S. owned territories, many paying less than $1 an hour.
Former Sec of Labor from 2017-2019-Rene Alexander Acosta with a history of anti-worker protections and adamantly against unions and minimum wage. Also approved a plea deal that allowed Jeffrey Epstein to plead guilty.
Assistant Secretary of the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), David Zatezalo, a former CEO of a coal mining operation with serious mining violations.
And now Trump’s Dept of Labor hired 2 union busters to oversee unions. 2-5-2020
National Labor Relations Board appointees:
1) Marvin Kaplan, whose sole experience with labor law is drafting legislation to weaken worker protections and holding hearings to criticize the NLRB.
2) John Ring, a partner at anti-union law firm Morgan-Dale Lewis
3) William Emanuel, a partner at union-busting law firm Littler Mendelson.
Trump twice nominated Thomas Farr for a lifetime judicial seat, a lawyer who defended employers and corporations charged with employment discrimination, has fought efforts to create safe working conditions for employees, opposed by the AFL-CIO, who’s 1st job out of law school was working at an anti-union organization, the so-called National Right to Work Foundation, has continued to defend employers against discrimination claims and worker safety claims ever since, authored a brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a NC Supreme Court decision that invalidated a state workers’ compensation law that would not permit workers who developed chronic lung disease due to asbestos exposure from obtaining a remedy, and defended a company that refused to allow a union to take temperature readings in the workplace where glass-making workers were exposed to extreme heat conditions.
After promising the working class to rid Washington of corporate lobbyist, let’s look at who he installed:
Trump chose an oil lobbyist to run the Dept of Interior, a coal lobbyist as head of the EPA, a pharmaceutical lobbyist as head of the Health and Human Services, a Raytheon lobbyist for acting Secretary of Defense, a billionaire charter school heiress to run the Dept of Education, and a banking executive for Secretary of the Treasury.

Trump is clearly anti-worker and clearly pro-worker theft. He even admitted so debating Hillary and saying that stiffing American workers and contractors out of their money after building his casinos was “good business”. The bastard shifted $2 trillion to those 764 billionaires through his tax scam and another $1.5T thought COVID relief.
The entire Republican Senate as well as 2 Democratic Senators are entirely OWNED by these 764 billionaires. They don’t even try to hide it.
So Trump hired people to run government programs who ACTUALLY HAD EXPERIENCE IN THOSE INDUSTRIES?
You’re just supporting Trump, at this point.
Workers got richer under Trump. After the planned pandemic and unelected Biden, they aren’t even working and businesses are failing.
Democrats get those 764 billionaire rich. Not Trump. Trump is clearly pro-worker and anti-China, anti-globalist. He’s also got support that’s real, and not dependent on a copy machine or a software “glitch.”
Don’t even try to argue it.
Trump’s performance as a great President is fact. You can’t even try to defend this disgrace that is Biden, who is and has failed on every single metric:
– War in the ME, arming our enemies and getting our citizens killed.
– Was handed a Trump vaccine and now has more dead from covid than Trump.
– Has divided the nation with illegal mandates and autocratic behavior.
– Getting Tech, banks, and pharm filthy rich as he lines their pockets after they lined his. Those 764 Billionaires are very, very happy with their investment.
– Higher Gas Prices DUE TO HIS DIRECT ACTIONS AND COMPLETELY CONTROLLED BY HIM.
Trump was helping Americans.
Biden and his own are just helping themselves.
Carry on, junior. You’re not going to win this one.
Trump is a fraud. He has corrupted the GOP and will destroy the country if given another chance. He had his four. He can go to hell.
Trump is most legit President in my lifetime.
Biden is an actual Fraud.
Trump won his eight, honorably and will get it in the end.
The country was demonstrably doing well during Trump’s term. It’s fact.
That’s why Covid-19 was released.
Payback is gonna be a bitch.
By the way—we ALREADY won it. Biden is in Washington, and Trump is on his endless Stolen Election rock tour, pitching fantasies and picking pockets.
You wish. We have a divided nation and the thinking, working side of the country doesn’t acknowledge Biden as anything other than a globalist install.
Trump is raising money. Biden is getting paid by foreign nationals.
This is not yours. So who wrote it? citation, citation, ciliation. who wrote this? You did not author this work It is called PLAGIARISM just like the pedophile does every day.
do you take your Donepezil on a daily basis as instructed by your physician. you mystical numbers: were can they be located-called a citation on academics.
Feckless biden cannot solve, inflation, economic stagflation, loss in wages, border control, supply chain disruption, the CCP virus, gas prices and a host of other issues threatening America and Americans.
Why is this dementia addled senile old man in charge? Why is he failing and no democrat speaks out?
It took Trump only 4 years to totally bugger an economic recovery that it had required 8 long years to accomplish. Slow and steady was working very well, and could have continued to do so.
You are one sick puppy. By all economic standards, 2019 was an epic year. You and your feckless president suck. Your president sucks so much you are not even stupid enough to defend him.
President Trump’s economic success dwarfs any obama/biden did for 8 years.
You are just too much of a dumbass to otherwise realize the actual reality.
Everybody loves a party, but it’s now 2021, and the bills are coming in for excesses of the recent past. The long-term damages of the COVID-19 disaster aren’t going to make paying them any easier.
The bills caused by a released virus and subsequent Democrat coup, yes. We need Trump’s superior economic management and leadership like never before. He now even has the great record to support him.
Hope you’re ready for the bill.
It took your piece of shit President less than 8 months to totally fuck up this country. You should consider self immolation as a solution to President Trump living rent free in you walnut size brain
We had an incredible economy under Trump. It’s fact.
He succeeded where Obama failed through superior policies. He ended his term with record unemployment, better trade deals with crooked China, and an overall roaring economy.
He was so successful the people he stopped from robbing us had to release a pandemic and use sh*theads like you to keep repeating lies that Trump somehow failed.
Hell, you even rigged an election.
Trump’s performance is great. His place as one of the greatest American Presidents of all time is FACT.
Meanwhile, impostor Biden is literally destroying our economy and giving Trump’s victories over to people who paid him to do so.
Perhaps in the parameters of your rabbit hole that is true but not what is well documented over here in the real world.
There really is no “superior policies” or legislation trail to support that claim. Not only that but much like the GWB/Republican economic crash and burn of 2008, Trump left us again in ruins. The only notable act to point at is the tax scam which proved to be an abject failure. It didn’t create jobs of any significant number, shifted around $2 trillion to the most wealthy, and added $trillions to an already exploded the deficit.
Even prior to COVID, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, manufacturing jobs were tanking in the 3rd quarter of 2019. A further look at those BLS numbers shows that more jobs were added under Obama than Trump. Trump was merely riding off of the coattails of Obama’s success and gradually screwing it up in the process.
And speaking of the BLS, Trump claimed their numbers to be fake while campaigning in 2016 but then claimed they were legit when using them after elected. At the same time he was claiming the BLS numbers showed a roaring economy, his were actually worse than Obamas. So again, Trump never created any roaring economy but was able to persuade his basket of gullible to believe it.
Perhaps his economic failure is another reason the C-SPAN’s 2021 Presidential Historians Survey, Siena College’s Presidential Expert Poll and the Presidential Greatness Rankings conducted by professors at the University of Houston and Boise State University ranked Trump as the 2nd worst U.S. president in history.
But in fairness, I’m sure demanding political favors from Ukraine in exchange for congressional approved military aid and then inciting a mob to storm the Capitol to stop the Electoral College results from being certified by Congress didn’t help him much in his poor ranking. And then of course, his deadly incompetent handling of COVID played a role.
Of 2 of the 10 qualities considered by these historians, Trump hit dead bottom in “moral authority” and “administrative skills.” His strongest standing was a high # 32 on “public persuasion”.
In other words, he ended up like most everyone outside of your bubble tried to tell the basket of gullibles all along. He’s a persuasive con man but a failure in all other aspects, a charlatan, grifter, everything people who didn’t allow themselves to be played for fools told you.
Obama wrecked the economy with his taxes and regulations. The only jobs he created were low paying and part time. It wasn’t until Trump that the labor participation rate began going back up.
Trump was a resounding success, which was what necessitated all the false accusations and lies (which you provide an explicit example of) and election fraud to get him out of office.
Idiot Biden is merely the transmitter for more of Obama’s nation-wrecking policies.
You live in a Lefist echo-chamber. Don’t project.
The country is being destroyed by Biden’s master’s policies.
Trump handled Covid-19 well. He was attacked by you people and still got a vaccine.
More have died under Biden, who wanted to keep travel to China open, than Trump…even after that fool was given the Trump vaccine.
The myth of Trump “botching” the intentionally released Covid-19 response is now dispelled.
Trump is a historic economic success. It’s fact. You can’t even argue it without being slammed flat by your cowardly failed use of Covid.
Hope you’re ready for some pushback when you try to cheat in 2024. We’ll be making sure to provide hurdles to voting, as their should be.
Nathan, you and your cult have truly gone off the deep end, robotically making unfounded and unrealistic claims that you call “facts” which are no more than your avid admiration of your racist Orange Lord along with your festered hatred of those you refuse to dwell in the bowels of your master with you.
You continue to confirm your delusional allegiance to a serial liar and con man who failed miserably as both a business man and as the leader of the most powerful country on earth.
You can’t even accept the very BLS numbers which Trump himself used. You cannot accept the views of world leaders or even those of renown historical scholars if they put a dim light on the orange light you so desperately need to see.
When you are presented with Trump’s shortcomings, atrocities, gross failures, his long list of confirmed daily lies, and other realities, you seem to say: “no, I don’t like those facts so I’ll tell you what I want and that will be the facts”.
Trump failed spectacularly which is why world leaders denounce him, historical scholars rank him as 2 worst ever, why he lost the election by around 7 million votes, and why even the most conservative courts in the land could not defend his Big Lie.
You hate Trump because you were told to. You call all those not in your Cult “cultists” because you were told to.
Trump was and is a successful President. The propaganda you blindly swallowed, being weak in character, is simply because Trump disrupted the status quo and showed the existing structures to be what we all knew they were: corrupt, and just there to get the rich richer.
Yours is the beta-male world of “do people agree with me or like me” that has allowed the powerful to keep you in chains. You clutch desperately to a world-order that’s 30 years or more in the past. They fear no owning the narrative, which was how the 20th Century worked.
We’re in the 21st Century now.
Trump succeeded spectacularly, as evidenced by a released pandemic and a rigged election.
Trump got 75 million legal votes. No amount of baked “scholars” with their failing efforts to maintain the Blue Church narrative can re-write history.
Your “facts” are anything but….just more subjective tripe that you know is wrong.
Objectively, Trump was good. You know it, we know it.
All you Cultist have is hate. You can’t tell me what you voted for, or what you support….you’re just another nazi looking for a job at the prison.
He wont see no American Soldiers killed in Afghanistan for 18 months..til Xiden
No low prices for energy …til Xiben
No political prisoners …til Xiden
No 1.7 million illegal aliens to support on Ameuican taxpayers backs, in one fiscal year …til Xiden
Trump would have stopped the jabs before over 17K fake covid vaxx deaths.
Now they want to come for our kids with this big pharma bio-weapon.
There is no hope for those that are so brainwashed by the mockingbird media. But we can see how all the German people kept quiet while their fellow citizens were put in train cars. We can see who would have turned Anne Frank over to the German military, Greg and Ronnie.
“You hate Trump because you were told to.”
Well, no. I disliked Trump years ago. He’s been a con man his entire life and cheated people and contractors out of their pay long before he ran for president. He even admitted this during the debates and referred to it as “good business”. My disdain of Trump goes way back. I’ve just never been a fan of mafia style con men, serial liars, rabid racists, cheats, Nazi supporters, white supremist sympathizers, or your general casino thugs as a regular civilian much less for leader of our country. Why you and your low life pro-resurrectionist, pro-rape, Putin loving, COVID spreading filth admire those traits speaks for itself.
So your statement ( I dislike Trump because I was told to) is simply something you created out of thin air and without any merit and then called it a fact.
The rest of your rant is equally nonsensical and a reiteration of your preferred “facts” over what the world witnessed in real time.
Your childish insults do nothing to support your baseless claims. Trump’s rankings will likely get much worse as time goes on.
“You hate Trump because you were told to.”
Everything you think, everything you say, was provided for you by those relying on your ignorance.
I’m afraid you’re missing the point with your “rankings” and “historian reports.”
That’s not the century we live in anymore. Those things no longer have any authority, so compromised by a dead world order still trying to hang on and using low-thinking people like you to do it.
Trump was and is a good President. By objective truth, it’s fact. Nearly everything you offer is nothing but a Soviet-style lie or distortion.
You dislike Trump because you were told to. You know this. That’s why it hits a nerve.
You’re the idiot Cultist you decry others of being. Beta-males who can only blame others instead of taking responsibility usually are.
“Well, no. I disliked Trump years ago.” No, actually you have supported him in the past. Here are some of your quotes.
“Trump… he’s infallable”
“nothing is… Trump’s fault….blame Democrats”
Those are your words, from your posts.
“Trump’s rankings will likely get much worse as time goes on.”
Oh, if this were 1984…with Dan Rather telling us how bad a President is and we just say “yeah, that President is bad….because Don Lemon…er…Dan Rather said so,” you’d have plenty of support from others.
As it stands, the “socially enforced good opinion of funded media outlets” holds about as much water as Joe Biden’s approval rating.
People know what they know, and think what they think….the Democrat-paid talking heads be damned.
In another era you would have been a great Spanish Inquisitor.
You support the ruling order, for your own weak character to find meaning, and you’d kill to maintain that order at all costs.
And it’s high time you little men admit what you really think:
You want total control and the end of democracy.
I don’t care if you like Trump. I don’t care what you’re opinion is. BUT, you don’t get to rig elections and lie just because you think you are THAT right.
That’s not how our country works.
You’ve now labeled yourself as a non-American, and I will treat you as such. Learn to live with others in a democracy, or get the f*ck out and try your own Marxist experiment.
This country is a Constitutional Republic with democratic elections.
It’s not compatible with…whatever religion you’ve been indoctrinated with.
Biden is not the president, and we lawful citizens are deciding what to do with non-democratic terrorists like you.
“When you are presented with Trump’s shortcomings, atrocities, gross failures,” Um… you never present any such things; you just talk about them as if they exist. Like “Russian collusion” you simply accept what you are told without evidence and even when it is proven they are lies, you STILL cling to them.
Trump was a success, making what was good for the nation and the citizens is only priority. Idiot Biden is a proven criminal, sharing a bank account with his criminal, corrupt, crack-head, whore-mongering son when he was Vice President. Because you are so stupid, I’ll explain explicitly that that means the foreign money Hunter was getting was shared by idiot Biden. Yet, you whole-heartedly support the corrupt fool, idiot Biden.
Physco Ward at it again. This time all the way back to GWB. So lets play along here. Both Obama and Biden were in the US senate prior to and during the housing bust. Did either or both of them ever warn of impending doom? Did either of them or both push for more loans to be given to those with poor credit who would end up not paying their mortgages? I know the answers. No and yes. No warning from either. As to the latter Obama was a big friend of ACORN pushing for more risky loans. Biden, well who knows, he may have been sniffing carpet with son Hunter. Biden has used his office for monetary gain, just ask Hunter, the family bag man. I have yet to find one Democrat warning of a housing bubble. Instead we have this.
Plenty of other video’s are available.
You blame GWB for the entire 2008 housing mess. What proof do you have? What EO, executive order or legislation did he sign into law that caused it? Those are tools a President has and both have records we can look up. So please provide it. Again why no warning from Obama or Biden?
You really have it in for billionaires. How many of these billionaires you rail against are Trump supporters? Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Twitter and on and on are not Trump supporters but have very wealthy benefactors. BTW the 1% did very well under Obama. The wealth gap increased.
The majority of the richest member of congress are Democrats? Pelosi is reported to have a 25 million dollar margin account. Not hard to figure out how she uses it for personal gain. Obama got richer once he left office? Can we wonder if he know has now made enough?
Recall that Bush tried to get Bawney Fwank to reel in Fannie Mae because of the threat to the economy the loans it was passing around were, but Democrats rejected any regulation of their social engineering. Then, disaster struck.
Whether they deserve it or not, the President and party in office always gets the blame when something craters on his watch. Hypocritical morons like AJ and Greg never seem to remember that they held Trump accountable for everything, including a virus generated and released by the PRC and things they simply made up. Yet when the supreme idiot Biden actively reverses things that are already in place and working fine, resulting in one disaster after another, they want to blame everyone but idiot Biden.
I love the liberal drone buzzing on about the rabbit hole. When abundant evidence is right in front of you in the form of lower gas prices, lower inflation, and lower prices for everything, and you can’t see the difference in less than a year, what kind of hole are you in?
His head is up that hole, whatever it is.
Interesting for the posters to note: there is ALWAYS a pattern to how and where greg/Ron post.
Anything that has to do with Trump, the vaccine, and now gas prices.
Their idiotic posts always seem to come right from the desk of the globalists giving orders to the desk of the WH.
Keep that in mind.
They are paid or hapless roaches only here to ensure no one on the interest is free of Democrat/Leftist/Globalist despair and propaganda.
i.e., as Bannon said, they are here to “sh*t on the conversation so no one knows what is true or false.”
If gas prices went up during Trump, they’d blame Trump in a heartbeat.
Donald Trump, October 13, 2021: “If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ’22 or ’24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.”
I didn’t say that. Your cult leader said that.
He’s right. Once a banana republic like yours rigs elections, they almost never, NEVER go back to a democratic nation, like we had before dictator Biden.
Democrats started using bullets and false-crimes instead of votes, because they can’t win on their own platform.
America does not support Biden, and it’s really starting to show.
We took Trump out with ballots. That’s how it works here. That’s how it’s SUPPOSED to work here. Even republican election officials state that the election was honest. They’ve fully reviewed the process and the count. Only Trump, his tools, and his followers claim otherwise, but there’s NO EVIDENCE supporting ANY of their bullshit. NONE. Nor should anyone accept their word for it, because they’re PROVEN liars. Truth and integrity have no meaning to these amoral bastards. They stink of rot, everything they touch rots, and they’ve got their claw-like hands on America’s most precious and irreplaceable treasures.
Fraud. You used fraud. There was no other way; Trump was a resounding success and Democrats provide only failure and divisiveness, so you knew a fair election was out of the question. Fraud and cheating is the mainstay of the Democrat party. It’s proven.
If Trump really had proof, the proof could be presented. It never has been. HE’S LYING.
The proof was presented, on video, on affidavit, on television.
Of course you the criminal was not going to admit that you cheated.
But we know it. You know it. You know it’s so deeper that’s why you have to keep posting the LIE.
State Farm Center. Fake water main break. Spike in idiot Biden votes.
You never have an explanation, and that’s just ONE example.
I never bother with an explanation for the “faked” moon landing or big foot sightings, either.
But that Russia hoax….you ate that one up, didn’t you, sucker.
You sure gobbled up the Russian collusion and quid pro quo garbage. You also eat up that “80 million vote” bullshit. You love lies. You prefer them.
You took no one out, but instead removed all doubt that the failed Democrat Party will resort to autocracy to impose policies we the people do not want.
Trump had 75 million votes, and probably more. That’s supported by his support and his visible attendance.
Biden had ZERO followers and needed a PR firm to all but tell the American people the DNC was going to rig the election before hand.
The DNC rigged it’s primary in 2016. I knew they would go further and rig an unwinnable election against a very successful, very popular Donald Trump.
The funny thing is how you look: you’re like a pig calling the other pigs swine.
We only support democratic elections in this country, greg. Get that through your head.
Biden won nothing except a cold civil war. We don’t recognize him as anything beyond a propped-up puppet for nefarious forces we’ve not elected.
If you wanted to destroy America, you’d do what Biden is doing every day. You’re party’s existence is an attack on our Constitutional democracy.
You “took out” Trump with fraud. Now he fills stadiums while you’re failed candidate gets drugged up to blather on a fake set.
America doesn’t determine who will be president based on stadium event attendance.
But logic does require that a man with 81 million votes who no one liked and no one showed up for might not quite have those votes legally, especially with the overwhelming evidence of dead voters, copied votes, so it’s counted in the night that we’re not verified by pole watchers, and the statistical and possibility of thousands of manufactured votes arriving just in time.
The election was rigged. You guys did not do a good job trying to cover it up.
Trump has 75 million legal votes. He has them today.
Biden couldn’t win an election without fraud.
I get so tired of the right’s “nobody likes Joe” bullshit. Joe Biden IS well liked. He’s not a fraud, pandering to the worst and most divisive impulses of his constituents. Unlike Donnie Boy, Joe Biden wasn’t born with a silver spoon in one or another orifice. His roots are working class and middle class. Biden has been popular with democrats and independents for decades. That’s why he was chosen as Obama’s running mate.
TRUMP, his propaganda tools, and republican state legislatures tried to rig the election. That was one of DeJoy’s missions, when it became apparent that a record number would submit mailed and absentee ballots owing to the COVID pandemic; Trump was paying more attention to discrediting mailed ballots than to the pandemic itself. Rigging the election was the entire point of Rudy mysteriously “discovering” Hunter Biden’s laptop, and Rudy’s mission to Ukraine, which was part of the extortion plot that got Trump impeached.
Trump was ALREADY whining about a rigged election midway through the summer, when virtually every national poll began to show he was likely to lose, and lose BIGLY. He began claiming that fraud was the ONLY way he could lose, which was utter nonsense. He was already setting the stage for the effort to overturn the results.
The fact of the matter is that a huge majority of voters had had more than enough of Donald Trump long before election day. January 6th didn’t do anything to make opinions more favorable.
“I get so tired of the right’s “nobody likes Joe” bullshit. Joe Biden IS well liked.”
Yeah, Joey Biden is well liked; by the Chinese, the Russians, the criminal unions, the left wing lying press. Lots of people. Just not the average American. You can’t ignore (well, you can) how Joey Biden has cratered in the polls. The clown’s disapproval rating is up 16% in less than 9 months in office. His approval is underwater. And this is in spite of the press fawning over him.
So tell us, coward, are you going to claim that America is still in Joey’s corner?
Joe is unelected with no support, no popularity, no chops.
Trump used a billion of HIS money to run 2016. Joe got six Billion thrown at him from billionaires and big corporations.
Trump earned it. Biden is a paid politician with no victories in his career.
Democrats all but announced they were going to cheat. “Red mirage?”
Trump has support. Biden has none…only lies that get the Leftist cult whipped up to vote “against” Trump…
Bad thing they didn’t think about what they were voting for: failure.
Now as their fooled constituents are turning on Joe, Democrats double down on the usual “just say Trump did what we just did”.
No one likes Joe. Worst ten months of any admin, legitimate or otherwise.
Trump has support, actual followers. Biden has none.
Idiot Biden is a corrupt, stupid, racist moron. The fraud that put him in office is the worst thing that ever happened to this nation.
He has had the greatest drop in approval of any president in history (though, not actually being president might make him disqualified).
What a waste of skin.
“I get so tired of the right’s “nobody likes Joe” bullshit. Joe Biden IS well liked.”
biden Has Lost More Approval Since Start Of Term Than Anyone Else Since World War II
The American people continue to turn on biden.
According to Gallup, biden’s approval started at 56% and is now only 44.7%.
Polling shows that biden has suffered a larger approval rating drop at the start of his term than any president since World War II.
New polling from Gallup shows that biden’s approval rating dropped from 56% in Q1 to 44.7% in Q3 which represents an 11.3% drop that has not been experienced by any president since World War II.
“This 11-point decline is larger than any prior president registered between his first and third quarters, although it is similar to those for the last three Democratic presidents — Barack Obama (10 points), Clinton (seven points) and Carter (nine points),” Gallup reported.
The polling results are based on data collected from October 1 through October 19.
A recent Quinnipiac Poll found only 37% of the country approved of him.
The Gateway Pundit reported:
Joe Biden’s approval rating hit a new low of 37 percent in the Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday, down from 38 percent two weeks ago. Biden’s disapproval is at 52 percent, down from 53 percent two weeks ago.
But the big news from the poll is Biden’s approval among independents has plummeted to 28 percent, down from 32 percent two weeks ago.
The backlash isn’t just in the polling either.
FuckJoeBiden chants occur regularly domestically in the US and around the globe.
When the country is chanting “F*ck Joe Biden”, that’s a clear sign he’s not popular.
That never happened with Trump or Obama.
Joe is well liked?
Go shopping, buy a clue.
pedophiles joe’s policies, all of them, as Gen. Patton would have stated ” like pissing money down a rat hole.”
Trump’s latest scam:
“A company that doesn’t do any business saw its stock soar as much as 400% this week on word it would help launch Donald Trump’s social media platform. The same day, another “blank check” company helped lift WeWork in its Wall Street debut – two years after the work-share company ditched plans for an IPO amid skepticism about its finances and leadership.
“Both ventures are centered on special purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs, which exist solely to raise money from investors and find a private company to merge with and take public.
“Though SPACs in their current form have been around since the early 2000′s, they have exploded in popularity in recent years, drawing in celebrities like Shaquille O’Neal, Jay-Z and the former president. But they’ve also drawn regulatory scrutiny, the ire of scorned investors, and some harsh pullback from the market. Here’s what you need to know about this popular alternative to an IPO.
“What is a SPAC?
“SPACs are essentially shell companies that allow groups of investors to raise money, list on a stock exchange, and then quickly take a private company public in a way that bypasses the rigorous process of a traditional IPO.
“SPACs are also known as “blank check companies” because they exist as pools of cash without an explicit investment target – until they find their corporate soul mate…”
As someone once described such a phenomenon, “There’s no THERE there.” People are investing in the idea of an investment, and enthusiasm for handing over their money is rising rapidly as they observe the rising pile of imaginary value. Interestingly, the company to which his pile of cash is expected to move is Trump’s “Truth Social”.
A prediction: Somebody will pocket actual cash, and somebody will be left holding an empty bag. Perhaps more money could be made by placing bets on who escapes with the cheese.
Why can’t biden solve the gas price issue like President Trump did or the border or inflation. Is ron klain president?
If Trump had actually solved these problems, they wouldn’t now be staring President Biden in the face. Trump “solved” them like he “solved” Afghanistan.
Gas prices were not an issue under President Trump nor was inflation or the border.
Keep lying because makes you even less credible
Are you titillated by this back and forth. Are you rubbing one off like jeffery toobin
Trump gives no thought to long-term consequences. Neither do his cult members. But they always catch up.
I’m sure you can quickly crank out enough inane one-liners to push anything you didn’t like off the page.
Why not. Pushing your shit out of view is a service provided without a fee.
Alec Baldwin’s Negligent Discharge: Unhinged Actor May Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges
The only cult is the Leftwing zanies like you, and that’s failing as your propaganda outlets continue to drop in ratings and reach.
The mass censorship of non-Leftists is only making a new conservative generation who won’t put up with the usual Leftwing grift.
The long term consequences of letting you losers run free is China’s 2049 plan.
Not on my watch.
“If Trump had actually solved these problems, they wouldn’t now be staring President Biden in the face.” Trump solved them. All idiot Biden had to do was leave them alone. Instead, he reversed the solutions. The economy, the border, trade, national security, Afghanistan withdrawal, Middle East peace were all either solved or a solution was in place and working and in every case, idiot Biden stepped in and upended what was in place, with typically Democrat results: DISASTER.
All idiot Biden’s problems (which have become OUR problems) are of idiot Biden’s creation. That’s what, apparently, 50 million people wanted… because they HATE this country.
Let’s go Brandon
Why did less than 300k watch your dumbass president at his fake town hall?
Yeah. Hitler rallies always drew bigger crowds.
Like Obama? Talk about a real cardboard cutout we could believe in.
Now we get a fake WH set and a fake prez they don’t even try to pretend is actually elected.
Obama gets crowds: he’s the ONE.
Trump gets crowds: he’s Hitler.
Go f*ck yourself. Trump has real support from normal Americans. Biden is in danger of being removed, daily.
His failure to lower gas prices might be the last straw.
Trump is a malignancy. He’s the rotten apple that spoils the entire barrel. His supporters should consider what he has turned THEM into.
That’s just your subjective, and useless opinion.
When objective facts are presented, he was and is a good President, an temporary executive hired to run our Executive Branch.
Biden is an imposture and installed by those we did not election. He’s a threat to our constitutional democracy.
There is no Trump cult. You Leftist Cult-members hate seeing a group of people operate under their own principles instead of the mindless you dogma you clowns need to pretend you have a life.
Blah Blah. Biden get’s paid SIX BILLION in funds, and it’s not covered.
Trump raises money and it’s a “scam.”
You’re losing it.
Trump’s legacy is that he used a Billion of HIS OWN MONEY to win a duly elected Presidency, didn’t take a paycheck, and didn’t let the lobbyists own him.
He is literally the opposite of a grifter or scammer.
BIDEN IS LITERALLY PAID BY CHINA AND RUSSIA. IT’S NOT EVEN DEBATED.
That’s the only scam going on here: insurrection by the failed Democrat Party.
