 Dem Operative Who Oversaw Trump Rally Agitators Visited White House 342 Times

A key operative in a Democratic scheme to send agitators to cause unrest at Donald Trump’s rallies has visited the White House 342 times since 2009, White House records show.

Robert Creamer, who acted as a middle man between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee and “protesters” who tried — and succeeded — to provoke violence at Trump rallies met with President Obama during 47 of those 342 visits, according to White House records. Creamer’s last visit was in June 2016.

I put this on my tablet yesterday and went outside to check it, and with the clouds, the only thing visible was the Moon, but the app DID show me what I'd have seen! I'll try again tonight..

So I drove a new Corvette yesterday, first time in a Vette as passenger and then driver. I pulled...

... up into the relatives' sloping driveway, set the brake, put it in park, then struggled to exit the driver's seat for the first time ever. A handful of relatives stood by helpfully watching, one making the remark, "Let's give him a few more minutes before we call the fire department for an extraction!"

I finally squeezed myself out and before I was quite steady, did a little dance step. Bad move! I went over backwards, downhill, in the prone position. So now I have a big bandage on what was a freely - bleeding arm wound and a nicely - developing bruise on my left hip where I landed on my wallet. Two of my relatives are a retired RN and a working RN so the wound dressing was professional quality.. as were the comments. But nobody had a camera present, so it really never happened...

What a rats nest of evil is seeking to overcome the American people this November; Bill Clinton..

... Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and too many minions to count. Their success would mean the utter triumph of federalism over the individual states' rights and the accellerated demise of our Constitution...

My first insulting PM! Not sure why I'm blessed with this gift, should I treasure it?...


Way to get a hide, loser.

I'm glad I'm not such a thin skinned cunt like you. 


Hillary's mind is going and/or she's lying as she "does not recall" twenty times under oath...

Hillary Clinton submitted formal answers under penalty of perjury on Thursday about her use of a private email server, saying 20 times that she did not recall the requested information or related discussions, while also asserting that no one ever warned her that the practice could run afoul of laws on preserving federal records.

"Secretary Clinton states that she does not recall being advised, cautioned, or warned, she does not recall that it was ever suggested to her, and she does not recall participating in any communication, conversation, or meeting in which it was discussed that her use of a e-mail account to conduct official State Department business conflicted with or violated federal recordkeeping laws," lawyers for Clinton wrote.

Clinton also said she could not recall ever being warned about any hacking or attempted hacking of her private account or server.

Clinton signed the legal filing Monday "under penalty of perjury." The submission was ordered by a federal judge in connection with a Freedom of Information Action lawsuit filed by the conservative group Judicial Watch.

"Crude, harsh, or coarse language. Excessively hot rhetoric. Screaming, over-the-top, and... language." 

If you check the "Help" forum, the very first pinned post, "How to participate on Discussionist" includes a link to the "About" page and there under "How to participate" and "Keep it civil" you'll find the link, "Show me some examples of behaviors that could be considered uncivil."

... and find:

Some examples of uncivil behavior

Personal attacks, insults, threats, namecalling, and the like.

Racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, or other forms of bigotry and intolerance.

Broad-brush smears about groups of people.

Crude, harsh, or coarse language. Excessively hot rhetoric. Screaming, over-the-top, and in-your-face language.

Excessive snark.

Picking on newbies.

Trolling, baiting, stalking, or generally acting like an ass.

Any behavior which makes people feel unwelcome.

While some of us have never read the above and more of us have occasionally strayed a bit over the line, SOME of us are easily identifiable by continually using crude, harsh, or coarse language, and those are the folks who garner many or the most hides.

Note, this one is NOT restricted to comments about other members, it can be the use of such language in any given post. Use such language occasionally, you might get away with it, but using it multiple times in a single post greatly ups the chance of a good hide.

WHY do they do it? I don't know, I don't do it, I feel no NEED to do it, I can express myself within the bounds always almost always.

Hillary, not NOT "standin ' by her man" yet again...

Hillary Clinton encouraged supporters Monday to follow and stage an intervention for a protester who was removed by security after he interrupted her rally in Detroit.

"You know," Clinton said after the demonstrator was forcibly removed from her campaign event, "I do hope somebody follows that gentleman out and stages an intervention."

The demonstrator, and African-American male, was wearing a shirt featuring a likeness of Bill Clinton with the word "RAPE" printed across the front.

Hillary is STILL attracting flies, did she bring them with her? Are they her unauthorized pets?...

... Has she had a little accident? ...
