The Trump Presidency so far...

Hilarious - The Trump Presidency so far...

Yiannopoulos attacks Ariana Grande saying she is "Pro Islam" and "Anti American"

Hmmm, let's see, who should I side with here? Ariana Grande who has talent and seems personable, or racist demagogue Milo Yiannopoulos who is pro-pedophilia. Gee, tough call... not


Far-right media personality Milo Yiannopoulos ignited a backlash on social media Tuesday after he criticized singer Ariana Grande for being 'pro-Islam' less than a day after a suspected jihadist suicide bomber killed 22 of her fans and wounded dozens at her concert in Manchester.

The former Breitbart editor posted a message on his Facebook page in which he took Grande to task for 'being too stupid to wise up and warn her European fans about the real threats to their freedom and their lives.'

'She will remain ferociously pro-immigrant, pro-Islam and anti-America. Makes you wonder whether they bombed to attack her or in solidarity,' he wrote.

The remark drew backlash from a number of Facebook users who took Yiannopoulos to task for his criticism of the singer so soon after the attack.

How's that "Trump Russia Collusion is bullshit" working for the Jackass Radicals these days?


These are folks who hate Hillary so much, they don't want anything to detract from the idea that the loss is her fault and the fault of us who supported her.

The problem is, the facts are solidly against them.

How do the JPR types like their Trump now? Also, we finally have JPR types admitting the Russians

at least tried to do "some stuff", but they quickly say that it didn't have any effect on the election. https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/sorry-still-not-buying-the-russia-did-it-crap/#post-634144

On the Bullshit side you have these claims from Clinton and the establishment that Russia hacked the voting machines and altered the outcome of the actual vote. This is complete crap and there hasn’t been evidence of any voting results being altered.

The second claim that Wikileaks got the information from the Russians after they hacked the DNC & Podesta is also bullshit. Former British Ambassador Craig Murray came forward to state he was the go between for the DNC emails that Wikileaks obtained. His claims as to this have never been refuted.

On the other side it is pretty obvious that some members of the Trump camp have had involvement with Russia. And some have then lied about their involvement. It’s pretty well documented and wide spread.

All of this activity between Trump’s camp and Russians wreaks of Clintonesque pay to play corruption that appears to be very real. And some of it may be related to Russian involvement in using sock puppets, and hacking to try and influence the election. Not nice play on Russia’s part but it is a far cry from actually hacking the voting machines or being the Wikileaks source.

Hows that for some have your cake and eat it too! Hey its progress from them. In the past they denied the Russians tried to do anything. They love Putin over there.

We also now have multiple OPs at JPR trying to rally support to stop the repeal of the ACA, and various other OPs discussing the firing of Comey and discounting it could be because of Russia.

Does every campaign now need a sophisticated counter-intelligence operation to thwart Putin?

Regarding kpete's OP here: https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=9026604

...it seems like Macron counted on Putin's intelligence agencies trying to throw the election to Le Pen by doing similar things that they did to Hillary.

Does every Democratic campaign now need a department of counter intelligence?

Bill Maher schools JPR types on the left who didn't vote for Hillary

I hope the JackassRadical types get the message loud and clear, in particular what Maher says they can all do with themselves at the end at 5:01

NY Sens Schumer & Gillibrand and NY AG Schneiderman leading opposition to Trumpcare


New York Attorney General, Eric T. Schneiderman, said: "In addition to the devastating impact this bill would have on every New Yorker’s access to affordable healthcare, the legislation that passed the House today is unconstitutional in several critical respects—and I stand ready to challenge it in court. First, House Republicans’ attempt to effectively deny women access to reproductive healthcare services is a cruel and unconstitutional attack on women’s rights - especially the most vulnerable. Further, the Collins-Faso Amendment is a cynical ploy by House Republican leadership and President Trump that exceeds Congress’s authority by interfering with how New York has long elected to fund its Medicaid program. This bill threatens to slash essential healthcare services for millions of New Yorkers who need them the most. For these reasons, if this disastrous and unconstitutional healthcare bill is ultimately signed into law, I will challenge it in court.”

New York's senior Senator Charles E. Schumer said: “This bill is going nowhere fast in the United States Senate. Rather than trying to pass a different version of the same Trumpcare bill that would mean higher costs and less care, Senate Republicans should refuse to follow their House colleagues over a cliff, reject repeal, and work with Democrats to improve our healthcare system in a bipartisan way.”

“The Trump health care bill that passed today on a party-line vote is atrocious and must be defeated in the Senate," Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York), said. "Health care shouldn’t be about politics. It is about people and this bill would harm people. The only beneficiaries of this bill are big insurance companies and the wealthiest among us, with the price tag being paid by everyone else through higher premiums, less coverage, and millions of vulnerable Americans losing their insurance.".blackstarnews.com/us-politics/white-house/fast-and-furious-condemnation-of-trumps-american-health-care

Hooray for NY and our great statewide elected officials!
