This question was actually asked and answered at Comrade Trump’s Covid news briefing last week.
Question: Mr. President, at the crux of the theory is this belief that you are secretly saving the world from this satanic cult of pedophiles and cannibals. Does that sound like something you are behind or a believer in?
Trump: Well, I haven’t — I haven’t heard that. But is that supposed to be a bad thing or a good thing? I mean, you know, if I can help save the world from problems, I’m willing to do it.
The question was about Q-Anon, of course. Everybody is talking about Q, curious about Q, focused on Q. Think about it, though. Is it actually believable that Trump is secretly working with law enforcement to stop Hollywood celebrities and Democrats from stealing European children from Episcopalian churches for perverse sexual rituals and Satanic cannibalistic feasts?
No. No, the Truth is the Q-Anon conspiracy theory is just a silly distraction devised by alien agents embedded in the Dip State to keep you from looking at real conspiracies.
Zoo-Anon — Have you ever noticed how many seemingly innocent buildings in zoos have locked doors? Locked, with prominent Keep Out signs. Some are even reinforced with padlocks. What are they hiding? What’s going on behind those closed doors? What…or who…are they keeping hidden away from public scrutiny? Could there be secret rooms lined with stacks of cages holding European children stolen from Episcopalian churches? Are those children being sold to Hollywood celebrities? Or Democrats? For perverse sexual rituals and Satanic cannibalistic feasts? It’s no coincidence zoos are stocked with tranquilizer dart guns. Wake up, America.
Hue-Anon — Why are there so many multi-colored flags out there? You’ve seen them. Some are variations on the Stars and Stripes, but with curious and unorthodox colors. Some are passed off as Pride flags or flags of supposed ‘sports’ teams, or even national flags of countries with ridiculously improbable names (like Ruritania or Peru). Isn’t it more likely that many of those ‘flags’ are actually coded messages? Messages hidden in plain sight, recognizable to agents of the Dip State traveling incognito, transporting European children stolen from Episcopalian churches to be delivered to Hollywood celebrities and Democrats for perverse sexual rituals and Satanic cannibalistic feasts. Keep your eyes open, don’t accept any flag except Old Gory. Wake up, America.
Roux-Anon — Have you noticed how many so-called ‘chefs’ are foreigners? Not just foreigners, but supposedly French? Why? Are we to believe France–a nation whose relationship with armpit hair is questionable–produces the world’s best cooks? Have you ever actually met a real French cook? Probably not. And yet the myth persists and the myth is grounded in the preparation of a thickening agent used in cooking. It’s called a ‘roux’ but it’s literally nothing more than flour mixed with some form of rendered fat, perhaps. Why did they have to make up a French-sounding world for that? More importantly, where does that fat come from? Could it be the baby fat of European children stolen from Episcopalian churches for the perverse pleasure of Hollywood celebrities and Democrats for perverse sexual rituals and Satanic cannibalistic feasts? Why do you think ‘French cuisine’ is so expensive? Learn to think for yourselves. Wake up, America.
J. Crew-Anon — This clothing retailer recently announced it would apply for bankruptcy protection. Why? They claim it’s because of the Covid-19 pandemic. But the president assures us that children are virtually immune from Covid. Isn’t it more likely that European children stolen from Episcopalian churches are sold to J. Crew as slave labor after they’ve grown too old for the perverse pleasure of Hollywood celebrities and Democrats for perverse sexual rituals and Satanic feasts? Isn’t it more likely the company is closing its doors for fear that President Trump and Attorney General Barr are on the verge of arresting the executives of J. Crew and holding them in a Manhattan jail until they are murdered by ninja assassins hired by Hollywood celebrities and Democrats? Follow the logic. Wake up, America.
Gnu-Anon — A pony is an odd-toed ungulate. A gnu is an even-toed ungulate. Why is this important? Hollywood celebrities and Democrats are fiendishly clever. They needed an easily identifiable symbol that can be worn in public–a symbol which would allow them to recognize others of their sexually perverse Satanic cannibalistic ilk (yes, they are an ilk). Ordinary decent people might wear a polo shirt with the traditional emblem of a polo pony on the front. If you look closely at the next Hollywood celebrity fund-raiser for a Democrat, you’ll notice some of those polo shirts actually feature a galloping gnu. If you pay attention, you’ll hear them exchange a ritual greeting. “Hey buddy, how’s it going?” What this really means is, “Hello fellow conspirator, have you any European children stolen from Episcopalian churches available for perverse sexual rituals and Satanic cannibalistic feasts?” This is happening right in front of your eyes. Wake up, America.
Jew-Anon — This is a false flag conspiracy theory. (Not in the Hue-Anon sense, but in the sense that it doesn’t make any sense, if that makes sense.) Does anybody really believe Jews would engage in a conspiracy of any sort? I mean, they’ve never even been able to put together a professional football team. Don’t be stupid.
The Truth is out there. All you have to do is look for it. Wake up, America. Wake up.
Hey this was funny, except the part where a sitting president would advance, or at the very least, not point out the ridiculousness of current conspiracy bullshit.
This guy Trump exhibits reprehensible behavior. Not condemning bullshit is not better than embracing it.
Not condemning bullshit is not better than embracing it.
Well, sure. But I like to believe the folks who read this blog are clever enough to figure out my position on conspiracy theories without having to explicitly state it.
Hey, did you hear the one where all the scientists in the world got together to perpetrate this big hoax about how the earth is heating up?
Or a more topical one; Isn’t it crazy that officials all over the world are writing Covid -19 on the death certificates for anything at all just to undermine Trump in the November election?
Bigfoot is coming for you Greg.
Bigfoot has an open invitation. I hope he likes craft beers.

Lets look at this objectively. The president decides to not make a negative comment about a group that supports him who is against child sex trafficking and against those who perpetrate it. The media and people like you are so upset by this. It makes your collective panties bunch up. But, when another group, based 100% on a lie and continually based on a false narrative and false facts, creates 600+ billon dollars in damage, loots, steals, destroys, attacks our police, looks to steal from hard working Americans and the entire democrat party cheers this on as if they were a bunch of boy scouts earning their eagle pin, you just ignore it as normal.
You are again DELUSIONAL!!! You are a one trick pony. You have brought nothing new to the table at all. You are the prime example of TDS.
There is so much bullshit going on by the left and you purposely choose to sweep it under the rug. The have just nominated a man who is literally losing hi mind. If he wins and is removed from office, which he will, he would be replaced by someone who has lied and slept their way to their political positions in life. A SF elite who withheld evidence from death row inmates until AFTER they were executed. A person who has lied continually about her past. Nope, nope of this i worthy of any true intellectual examination. Nope, you would rather keep on with the “comrade” crap that has been proven wrong already.
Lets look at this objectively. The president decides to not make a negative comment about a group that supports him who is against child sex trafficking and against those who perpetrate it.
By all means, let’s look at this objectively. The president decides not to make a negative statement about a group that believes, without any supporting evidence, he is secretly working with Robert Mueller to uncover and prosecute a cabal of Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking government officials who are operating an international Satanic child sex trafficking ring that tortures and murders the children in order to obtain adrenochrome from the pituitary glands of their victims, which they either ingest or inject to maintain their youthful appearances. Objectively, that’s fucking nuts and any reasonable person, including the president, would say so.
you would rather keep on with the “comrade” crap that has been proven wrong already.
You may want to read the Senate’s recently released five volume 966-page report on the Russia investigation. Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans. Their report notes “hundreds of actions by Trump, his campaign, and his associates in the run-up to the 2016 election that involve some degree of participation by Trump or his associates in Russian activity” to “influence, or attempt to influence, the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.”
Or wait…maybe the Republicans in the Senate are also cannibalistic Satan worshiping pedophiles?
When Pelosi and Shummer and the collective in media come out and denounce the terror created by BLM then you have a leg to stand on regarding OAnon. OAnon is not harming anyone, they have conspiracy theories that are backed in as much fact as the Russian investigation that proved NOTHING. There is nothing but pure conjecture in the report and zero evidence Trump had anything to do with any Russian attempt to influence. Remember, they also put our pro Hillary and anti-trump ads on facebook but those did not matter.
So come back here and condemn the actions of BLM. Condemn their charter that seeks to defund the police. Condemn the actions of their members pulling innocent people from their car and beating them til within an inch of their life.
Your blinders are so damned thick. Everything is “Trump Bad”, zero objectivity.
OAnon is not harming anyone
December 4, 2016, Edgar Maddison Welch, from Salisbury, North Carolina, opened fire on a DC pizza shop with an AR-15. He told police he was there to investigate a “satanic cabal of elites” of the New World Order operates international child sex trafficking ring.
June 15, 2018, Matthew Phillip Wright of Henderson, Nevada, drove an armored truck to the Hoover Dam on a ‘mission for QAnon’. He was armed with an AR-15 and a handgun. He was eventually arrested on terrorism charges.
December 19, 2018 the FBI arrested a man with bomb-making materials in his car, which he intended to use to “blow up a satanic temple monument” in the Springfield, Illinois Capitol rotunda in order to “make Americans aware of Pizzagate and the New World Order, who were dismantling society.”
January 25, 2019, that DC pizza joint suffered an arson attack which is suspected of being related to QAnon
March 2019 Anthony Comello of Staten Island murdered Frank Cali, believing he was a member of the Deep State. Comello was a follower of QAnon.
May 30, 2019, an FBI “Intelligence Bulletin” memo was issued from the Phoenix Field Office identifying QAnon-driven extremists as a domestic terrorism threat.
April 2020, Jessica Prim was arrested carrying several knives, live-streaming her attempt to investigate the USN hospital ship Comfort in New York harbor, which had been identified in QAnon sites as a holding place for kidnapped children to be used by a cabal of pedophiles. She also hoped to “take out” presidential nominee Joe Biden.
There is nothing but pure conjecture in the report and zero evidence Trump had anything to do with any Russian attempt to influence.
You clearly haven’t read the report. It describes hundreds of actions by Trump, his campaign, and his associates that involve some degree of participation by Trump or his associates in Russian activities driven by Russian intelligence operatives.
False equivocation. Sad. LOL
And Uncle Joe is old, but sharp enough to know bullshit when he sees it, he is not telling people to drink disinfectant. He is only 3 years older than the orange guy.
I have read the report and it is all conjecture and interpretation. there is ZERO empirical or direct evidence of Trump or his team colluding with Russians regarding the election. If you have said evidence please list it here. if you are going to assume that any and all conversations with anyone Russian at any time during an election is somehow criminal, then Hillary would have been just as guilty.
Again for QAnon, you named a list of a handful of nut jobs that acted on their own. Not as a directive from the group. Unlike BLM that encourages violence and destruction and is supported by the left, it is a far cry different.
And it did not go unnoticed that you still failed to condemn the violence of BLM and their charter. One must assume that your silence means you support said violence and mayhem.
Hey Billy. You said, I have read the report and it is all conjecture and interpretation. there is ZERO empirical or direct evidence of Trump or his team colluding with Russians regarding the election.
I suggest you re-read Volume 5 of the report. It very clearly, and in great detail, outlines the manifold meetings and arrangements between members of the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence officers. It reports, again in great detail, how members of his campaign coordinated with individuals and groups associated with Russian intelligence agencies When I say ‘great detail’ I’m talking about dates and times and places; I’m talking about having a record of the length of some of the phone calls. Here’s an example:
On Sunday July 31, at 9:15 p.m., the day after speaking at length with Manafort, Stone called Gates. Ten minutes later, Stone had two phone calls with Trump ttiat lasted over ten minutes. Stone then emailed Jessica Macchia, one of Trump’s assistants, eight draft tweets for Trump, under the subject line “Tweets Mr. Trump requested last night.”
Volume 5 is almost 1000 pages long. It received bipartisan support for its publication in the Republican controlled Senate. It’s damning.
for QAnon, you named a list of a handful of nut jobs that acted on their own. Not as a directive from the group. Unlike BLM that encourages violence and destruction and is supported by the left,
You hold BLM responsible for violence committed by some of its followers, but claim QAnon isn’t responsible for violence committed by some of its followers. You can’t have it both ways.
But yes, I do support BLM. I can support them while still opposing civil violence committed by any organization, regardless of political persuasion.
This Greg is what we call grasping at straws.I have a copy of the entire report on my computer here.The items you site, while they happened, there was ZERO EVIDENCE that anything illegal happened. It is no different than if someone said “I saw your wife leave your best friend’s apartment the other night.” While the statement seems damning, there is no evidence anything bad happened or was going to happen.
Let me point you to page 941, Section U and this statement by the committee:
“While this Volume did not find evidence of collusion between President Trump and the Russians, it does detail a stunning accounting of the FBl’s sloppy work and poor judgment. In 2016, the Democratic Party, using a series of arm’s length transactions, hired a foreign citizen to seek out dirt on a political opponent, provided by foreign sources. This Volume confirms that Christopher Steele used information gained from sources in Russia-some with direct ties to the Russian Government. That unverified, uncorroborated, foreign information was then actively circulated with the press to disparage a U.S. political candidate. ”
The Russia Report CONFIRMS that the Democrat Party used Russian assets to attempt to gain negative information about a political opponent, Trump, before the election. I find it quite interesting that you completely ignore that juicy detail while claiming that phone calls made with no evidence of anything wrong is somehow bad. 3 years they spent on this BS and they found NOTHING ILLEGAL done by Trump. NOTHING.
And as for BLM… I almost did a spit take when you claimed it was only “some” of its people. Do you see the videos that come out daily? I just watched a video today that hearkened of Hitler’s Germany when they would force people to do the Nazi salute for fear of arrest. BLM supporters accosted people eating at a restaurant and tried to force them all to hold their fist up in solidarity with BLM. When some refused they nearly got violent with them. Here is the link to that lovely item: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=708102666412655
And here is another one with an old man trying to get gas in his truck. Those thugs are lucky he was patient and I was not driving that truck because there would be some dead criminals under my truck: https://www.facebook.com/103179718093224/videos/1349880372069996/
Keep defending this destruction of America, you are on the wrong side of history here.
if someone said “I saw your wife leave your best friend’s apartment the other night.” While the statement seems damning, there is no evidence anything bad happened or was going to happen.
It would be like that IF your wife had also repeatedly said she’d like to sleep with your best friend, and IF she’d texted your best friend and said she didn’t see any problem with sleep with him, and IF she’d been flirting with your best friend and dozens of his friends for months. Circumstantial evidence is still evidence.
Let me point you to page 941
Wait…you’re pointing to the minority opinion of the document as being representative of the entire document? You’re saying the last 40 or so pages of a 1000 page investigation report — pages that express an opinion contradictory to that of the majority of the Intelligence Committee — should carry more weight than the rest of the report? Sorry…not buying that.
And as for BLM… I almost did a spit take when you claimed it was only “some” of its people.
If BLM was as violent and bloodthirsty as you believe they are, why aren’t they armed? It’s easy to buy a firearm in the US, and yet what we see are protesters throwing stones or bottles of water at armored police. Why aren’t they buying guns and shooting people? Why are they primarily damaging property instead of killing people?
You’re not stupid, Billy. You know as well as I do that if any leftist group really wanted to create terror and destroy the government, they’d do what right-wing groups do; they’d arm themselves. They’d be sniping at police and planting bombs — which are actual tactics that have been used by white supremacist Boogaloo Bois.
Greg, you too are a smart guy, albeit blinded by your Trump Derangement Syndrome. I am not sure where you got the idea that these lefties are not gun toting thugs but did you miss the people in CHAZ/CHAp/CHUMP or whatever that place was called with the armed guards at the entry points? The young man killed there? Or maybe you missed the armed black militia present at some of the rallies. or the video yesterday showing a marcher pointing a gun directly into the camera of a reporter? Lets go back to the conservative equivalent of this, the Tea Party marches and demonstrations, how many of those resulted in violence and destruction?
Stop lying to yourself. You know damn well that BLM is a political organization hell bent on changing the core of American values. They have an entire page on defunding the police, it is not a slogan, it is a goal. Defunding the police is tantamount to me saying we should jail all blacks now because a large enough % of them commit murders. Read their charter and goals ,they are not pro American, they are not pro freedom, they are not helpful but destructive.
And back to the Russia BS. You know damn well if there was any real evidence of Trump doing anything close to illegal the dems would be running impeachment charges again and again but they know full well that most of the document is conjecture and the few items that do have real evidence, like the Steele docs and the DNC paying for it, they do not want any more light brought to that story that already is there.
And realistically speaking, WTF has Trump done to piss you off so much? You ignore every damn thing he has done that is great and bend like a pretzel to prove he has done bad. You still think the man is a racist no matter what he has done to help the black community. The prison reform the permanent funding of the HBCs, the opportunity zones in black communities, so much ignored. Can you at least be honest with yourself and me that he is doing good things for the black community and not bad things?
the conservative equivalent of this, the Tea Party marches and demonstrations
The conservative equivalent of BLM was the armed occupation of Malheur, it was the armed standoff at the Bundy Ranch, it’s the armed anti-maskers at the Michigan State House, and it’s the armed counter-demonstration in Kenosha. And all those cases the police stood by and were patient, unlike the police at the BLM demonstrations.
You know damn well that BLM is a political organization hell bent on changing the core of American values.
Yes, and I support changing many of those so-called values.
They have an entire page on defunding the police, it is not a slogan, it is a goal.
Yes, and I support defunding the police.
Defunding the police is tantamount to me saying we should jail all blacks now because a large enough % of them commit murders.
No, it’s not. Defunding simply means shifting the funding from police to other social services. The police are being asked to engage in tasks they’re not trained for. Dealing with people high on drugs, people who are homeless and have no place to sleep or bathe, people who are suicidal, people in crisis. Instead of buying MRAPs for the police, invest that money in social workers and health care workers. Doctors and nurses in Emergency rooms deal with people high on drugs, people who are violent, people who are suicidal ALL THE TIME, and they managed to do it WITHOUT SHOOTING ANYBODY.
Defunding is a tool for returning policing to its primary function — dealing with crime.
You know damn well if there was any real evidence of Trump doing anything close to illegal the dems would be running impeachment charges again and again
Why? The Republicans in the Senate have demonstrated they’re always going to acquit Trump of any wrongdoing. Have any of them even bothered to criticize Trump for ignoring the bounty Russia put on US troops in Afghanistan? No. And if they’re willing to overlook that, then there’s no hope they’d consider another impeachment.
You ignore every damn thing he has done that is great
I gave him credit for banning bumpstocks. That’s the only thing I can think of that might be considered ‘great’.
The prison reform the permanent funding of the HBCs, the opportunity zones in black communities
Prison reform. Yes, Trump signed the First Step Act. That bipartisan legislation had been passed in various forms in the House for years, but Republicans in Congress repeatedly blocked it…until Trump became POTUS. Trump didn’t create or initiate prison reform. He simply said he’d sign it, and then the Republicans who’d opposed it decided it must be okay. Even then, he insisted the funding for First Step be reduced to the point that it’s nearly toothless.
But look at what else Trump has done for prisons. He disbanded a program to create federal prison education systems, he closed federal halfway houses, he ended community-based violence prevention programs, he suspended the national forensic science commission. But yes, he signed the First Step Act which reduced some federal drug sentences. I’m not impressed.
HCBUs — Trump likes to say he ‘saved’ them. Again, all he did was sign education legislation that Congress had been working on for months, one part of which included US$85 million to HCBUs. It didn’t ‘save’ them, but it made life easier for them. And again, it wasn’t Trump’s legislation.
As to ‘opportunity zones’, I’ll just direct you to Factcheck.org.
Billy, here’s the thing. I DO passionately dislike Trump. I also passionately disliked G.W. Bush. But I want every president to succeed, because even if I disagree with them, I’ve always thought they had the best interest of the country at heart. If you look back over the years, whenever I criticized President Bush, I always used his correct title. Because I respect the office. I think Bush was a terrible president, but I think he was trying to do what he believed was best for the country.
I don’t think that’s true of Trump. I think he’s only concerned about himself. I think he’s brought the nation and the office of POTUS into disrepute. And I won’t forgive him for that.
Trump has lost nearly half his wealth during his time in office. He is not helping himself at all. unlike other presidents such as the racist Obama,the rapist Clinton and his evil wife, who got filthy rich after leaving office.
You and the never Trumpers have been 100% anti-Trump since day 1. You never gave him a chance and the media has been wall to wall negative Trump for 3 years. And even after all of that he has about 30-35% of black vote now and has lost none of his base. Those of us who actually think with an open mind can see all of the good.
Is Trump a politician? Is he eloquent and “well spoken and clean” like Obama? (Thanks for that quote Biden) Does he play all sides and pretend to be something he is not like both of the Clintons? No, what you get with Trump is an unfiltered, non-politician in government, just like the founding fathers originally wanted. Being in government was never designed or supposed to be a career where you have do-nothings like Biden in government for 47 years.
There is a reason Trump ruffled the feathers of BOTH republicans and democrats, it was because he was an outsider who did not follow the political norms and that’s why we voted for him. The establishment republicans know they are on the way out and this is why they have jumped ship to hang with the establishment democrats. Problem is there, the fringe leftist/socialist have all but taken over the democrats and soon the old school dems of real freedoms will all be gone.
The Russian investigation against Trump was an attempt at a bloodless coup, period. They knew they could not turn the will of the voters and they have to have their “insurance policy”. The Hillary campaign was just as much in contact, if not more so, with Russia and other foreign nations trying to get dirt on Trump and win an election, not unlike probably all presidents in the past. But again, the hypocrisy is strong with the dems.
As for the police, I am not sure how you expect them to deal with “only crime”when you are defunding them. 50% of all murders are committed by black men. Do you really think some social program is going to stop this? The reason there are so many druggies and mental patients on the streets is because progressives made it impossible to round these people up and force them into treatment. Here in LA the homeless population has skyrocketed because nobody can be arrested. If they are they are out in 4 hours. No matter how drug induced they are they are back on the streets and the police are powerless to force them into rehab or treatment. So i would love to hear about this grand plan to take billions from law enforcement and invest in treatment plans that nobody will be forced into.
And lastly about Trump. Trump is saying and doing nothing differently than presidents in the past, he just does not hide it like the others did. Obama and Lynch full on called for this illegal attempt to try and subvert the Trump campaign by weaponizing the FBI for political reasons. For someone who claims to respect the office of the president I am dumbfounded as to why you are not up in arms about that.
what you get with Trump is an unfiltered, non-politician in government, just like the founding fathers originally wanted.
I think you must have read a different set of histories than I did. Your understanding of the intent of the Founding Fathers has almost no resemblance to mine.
The establishment republicans know they are on the way out and this is why they have jumped ship to hang with the establishment democrats. Problem is there, the fringe leftist/socialist have all but taken over the democrats
Again, we have radically different views on this. The policies of Establishment Democrats today are pretty much in line with the policies of Establishment Republicans of the 1950s. Look at the GOP party platform for 1956 — raising the minimum wage, strengthen unions, protect the rights of labor unions, expand Social Security, improved worker safety, equal pay for equal work, additional low-rent public housing, a constitutional amendment providing equal rights for men and women, an immigration policy…providing a haven for oppressed peoples, asylum for thousands of refugees, expellees and displaced persons, strengthening NATO, expanding and protecting national parks.
Trump is saying and doing nothing differently than presidents in the past, he just does not hide it like the others did.
That’s just not true.
What are the democrats doing today that is the same ideology of our founding fathers? Right now the democrats are calling them all evil, horrible people and tearing down their statues. Condemning Mount Rushmore as a monument to slave owners when it was a majestic scene when Obama and Bernie were there. Can you at least admit the hypocrisy of your people? Come on man, it is actually recorded and can be watched on Youtube in like 5 minutes.
The Democrats are killing the 1st amendment. They have bastardized it and have silenced religion. No where does it state freedom from religion, only that the feds will not promote one. The freedom of expression of religion is protected yet to this day people are losing jobs and being sued for it. You will support private businesses forcing people to wear a mask but in the same breath say probate businesses cannot decide based on religious beliefs that they do not want to make a cake for a gay couple. Can’t have it both ways Greg, you either support freedoms or you do not. The same with speech. The left will do everything they can to silence the conservative views. From creating riots on campus when a conservative speaker is invited to speak, to trying to cancel and boycott anyone who dares not tow the same party line as the left, to claiming that someone saying All Lives Matter is hate speech and should be stopped. And do not get me started on the 2nd. The left’s attempts continue to destroy the 2nd and will stop at nothing until it is gone and our rights to own guns is gone.
Just look at the poor couple in St Lois who had to brandish weapons to protect their home from an angry mop WHO BROKE DOWN GATES and illegally trespassed onto their property. The couple was arrested and charged while not a single person in that mob was arrested. The racist DA in that town needs to be fired and run out of town.
And as for the platform of the Dems. They are nothing but talk. Maybe you are smart but maybe you do not know economics. Artificially raising minimum wage to levels of skilled labor when no skill is required hurts everyone in the end. Jobs are lost, costs of goods go up, and businesses close. You see, the short sighted dems always forget that if you pay the burger flipper $15 an hour, which is what you used to pay the asst. Manager, you now have to give a raise to the Shift Manager. If you give them a raise then you have to the Asst. Manager, then the store manager, then the district manager. And in the end to cover all of these costs you have to cut labor (lay people off) raise prices and most likely lose business and thus have to lay people off, or just close down. When salaries are based on supply and demand there is a balance. Minimum wage jobs were never supposed to support families. But the dems have normalized getting everything for free and no personal responsibility that someone who makes piss poor choices their whole life is supposed to have a well paying job for just breathing and shitting!!
And as for unions, the Dems loved them so much they taxed their union members like crazy because of their health insurance. Hell once they did that while I was still teaching in public school here in LA, I paid a but load of tax on my healthcare, gee thanks Dems for caring so much. The dems also are destroying industries that support 100’s of thousands of union jobs like oil, gas, coal and doing it at the expense of the poor and middle class. Because of their pet “green projects” energy rates are through the roof and who does that hurt most? The poor and middle class, but lets keep chasing the ever elusive man made climate change to make ourselves feel good. To hell with granny paying to run her AC in the 100 degree heat.
No, in a nut shell the democrats do not give a fuck about people. They ONLY care about staying in power and having some downtrodden people to use as votes. How long was Obama in office and what did he do to help? How many of these broken down cities have been run by dems only to be continually destroyed by crime and poverty? The only reason my state is not bankrupt yet is because of the siphoning of dollars from other states. The hell whole that is now San Francisco, a city I lived in for several years, is so bad I would not touch foot in that place now. A progressive dream land.
So again you are lying to yourself about the dems and their motivations. Trump is not looking to hurt people. He is looking to create an environment where those who choose to work hard and strive for greatness have an opportunity to do so.He is not passing any laws that are restricting progress, keeping anyone down, attacking one race or another, or hurting women. None of that is true and it is all made up lies.
Billy, if you truly believe all that, then all I can do is feel sorry for you. If you believe all that to be true, then I can almost understand why you’d think you need Trump.
Prove me wrong Greg. Which statement did I make that was false? I’ll wait.
Prove me wrong Greg. Which statement did I make that was false? I’ll wait.
I’ve no desire to try to prove you wrong. I’ve no desire to prove I’m right. That’s never been the point, Billy.
If, after four years of Trump as POTUS, you actually believe he is an honest, decent, moral, effective leader, there’s nothing anybody could possibly say to convince you otherwise. You have faith in Trump, and faith is immune to fact and evidence.
Greg I am not talking about faith, I am talking about quantifiable facts here.
Has the President supported the fossil fuel industry and helped keep energy costs low in doing so?
Why yes, yes he has. A very simple fact to research and confirm.
Going back to the opportunity zones, you were quick to try and give a link to I guess prove Trump was wrong and did not help with opportunity zones but all the link did was confirm that indeed Trump had worked with private companies get investment in these areas. The factchecker was upset because they could not 100% verify that the 100 billion dollar investment number was correct. They could find documented investment (and not investment is documented which they admit). The author then admits that there is planned investment of over 40 billion dollars and then admits that the 100 billion dollar mark touted by Trump and Senator Scott was backed by the Treasury department as the expected investment over the lifetime of the program. So again, a factual piece of evidence showing that not only did Trump back the Opportunity Zones but the numbers are becoming real in terms of dollars and investment.
You see, you do not need faith when their are facts. I can go on an on about all of these. I am sure you will find an article or story somewhere that will refute one part of the story and claim that makes the who story false as you did with the opportunity zones.
But I will leave you with this last one, because this is one of the most important ones. While I am pretty sure that democrats like you are not racist and bigots, most of the democrat leaders are. The leaders have all but called any black speaker from the RNC over the last week an Uncle Tom. They called them tokens and symbols of RNC white power. But the democrats will trot out a near politically brainless Cardi-B to interview Biden, knowing full well the interview will be beyond fluff, only so the Democrats can attract her 70 million also politically clueless followers. She is no better than a cotton picking slave to them. They used her and her ignorance to promote a man who is mentally ill and incapable mentally of holding the office of president, regardless of policies. The man is not mentally all there and you know this. You cannot sit here with a straight face and not tell me you think the man is has his mental ducks in a row. It is so bad now that even Pelosi is calling to cancel the debates because they are so scared of Biden being live on camera for nearly 2 hours unscripted. You have to know this.
