Nope.  You say that as if Trump is not exactly (or close) what I wanted.  You are wrong.  He is.  Sessions for Gowdy aside, the past two weeks have been a dream.  His cabinet looks almost identical to my dream team. 

To the rest, there is nothing wrong with white people finally voting their interests.  Every other racial and fringe group is expected to be 'proud,' but straight white men are supposed to hang their heads?  Riiiight...  ::)  To be clear, I am not in favor of ethnic cleansing, segregation (though it has merits) or deporting all illegals.  Why should I have to be?  I can be a proud American Nationalist of the White race, and Not embrace hate.  Thing is, *y'all* (to use your word) don't get to pick the definition of 'hate.'

Like I said before, you and your ilk had eight years to f__k things up.  We get four to try and offset some damage to our country, our society, and our culture.

(And since I am in a confrontational mood) *flips bird* Sieg Heil. ;)

We've had our first broken campaign promise as far as I can tell.  Hillary is safe from jail at the moment.  My next big problem is that come January 20, I'm going to need a new avatar.

    Just because someone else does something wrong doesn't mean it suddenly becomes right for you to do it.  This is the same wretched and disgraceful logic that says we should murder the women and children of Muslims because they want to murder ours.  I don't know about you, but my moral compass is not set according to the actions of the worst that society has to offer.   :scrutiny

    There absolutely is something wrong with white people voting their interests if the sole reason they do so is the color of their skin.  I don't regard the color of skin, mine or anyone else's, fringe or otherwise.  If you do, you're wrong no matter what color you are.   :eh

    I kind of hope he sweeps that whole thing under the rug.  Yes, she broke the law, and probably a whole bunch of other laws while she was SoS.  It's in the past.  Let it go.  She is done from the public eye, and I could think of a bunch of other ways that I would spend my post-election political capital than prosecuting a disgraced, has-been.

    I figure if the FBI has something more concrete, they'll move forward with it.

    There is nothing wrong with being proud of who you are, your culture, your ancestors, and their mark on the world.  Not if you are African-, Japanese-, Ukrainian-, or any other '- American.'

    My objection is that the MSM and liberals had fits over the whole 'uneducated white vote' thing, because they decided to vote for the candidate that promised them the biggest payout, while having no problem with the fact that 'uneducated blacks' voted for the opposite candidate, for the same reason.  I know it is petty, but I am fed up with the double standard.  Whether it is 'right' or 'wrong' is a matter for the philosophers.


    There absolutely is something wrong with white people voting their interests if the sole reason they do so is the color of their skin. 
    I don't, trust me.  I oppose Obama for every reason but his color, and would have voted for Ben Carson a hundred times before Clinton.  Just because I recognize differences between peoples, and that we are not all the same...  That is not the only, or even the first thing I think of when judging them.

    I don't regard the color of skin, mine or anyone else's, fringe or otherwise.  If you do, you're wrong no matter what color you are.   :eh
    To clarify, I said "every other racial and fringe group."  Meaning the ones who change genders like I change shorts, and the various other 'fringe' special interest groups.

    Probably, but I really hope they don't.  It is done, in the past, and we need to move forward.  We need this distraction like Trump needed a trial over the Trump University.  He avoided that distraction with a payout, and I hope for a similar outcome with Hillary.

    Y'all got played, in the most horrendous way possible.

    What I find disturbing is.....You still think this is worse than Hillary getting elected  :scrutiny

     I'll say that at this moment I'm liking Trump more than I did Nov 8th.       He's making more conservative appointee choices than I expected, and I'm becoming more inclined that he'll be repealing some EO's going back to the Bush (Bush senior) era.     Probably not, whereupon I'll eat my words.

        I do not like super-conservative "right", they're as bad as super-liberal "left"....however we need to push back against the "progress" made in the last 8(16) years.    I think that may happen.

    Yes, I do consider something fringing on neo-Nazism  worse than a woman who has been investigated for 30 straight years and not been convicted of a damn thing. No one's that good.

    Yes, if the FBI had had something, they would have moved on it. How else do we know there was nothing there, that it was just a smear campaign ?  Because we haven't heard word one since the night of the election.

    NOTHING. Not a single fluffing word.

    Seig heil*, Kaso?  You should be ashamed of calling yourself an American. The US spent too much blood fighting that sack of excrement and everything he stood for, for you to use that as a punchline.

    That's fine.  Fortunately we have not yet elected a candidate such as that.

    In a far-ranging interview with the New York Times, the US president-elect was quoted as saying: "I condemn them. I disavow, and I condemn."

    He said he did not want to "energise" the group, which includes neo-Nazis, white nationalists and anti-Semites.
    So there's that.

    For the record, I recall GWB being referred to incessantly as 'Hitler.'  Obama has been called nasty things as well.  Not every republican is a Nazi, and your side would do well to remember this.  Any more than any democrat is a communist.  Seriously. ::)


    Seig heil*, Kaso?  You should be ashamed of calling yourself an American. The US spent too much blood fighting that sack of excrement and everything he stood for, for you to use that as a punchline.
    It means 'hail victory,' (though I am sure you did know this) one of the *terrible* things that your articles reported on being said.  While I understand that this particular saying has direct Nazi connotations, the MSM leftists need to get a grip.  Supporting American Nationalism (such as I do) is not a direct parallel to supporting Nazism.  The fact that some of our positions align, comes from the 'National' in 'National Socialism.'  That's it. 

    I admit to using the term deliberately, to get under your skin.  Guess I did. ;)

    ...You should be ashamed of calling yourself an American...
    No more so than one who supports the Obama administrations past eight years' agenda.  I realize that we both love our country, just from... very... different points of view.

    Yeah, I doubt it.  He is making great picks, but I don't really expect a Hard Right presidency.  He is making these picks for a reason - to cater to his base.  I truly believe that he will govern moderately, from the right.  Time will tell.

    As far as dirty/rough campaigns go, I guess the pendulum swings.....  The campaigns of the early 1800's got AWFULLY ugly at times.  MUCH more so that what we just had.  The elections after Lincoln until just the last decade or so were mostly conducted with a certain level of decorum, but at a hidden cost we should never pay- 

    The major news media, for the most part(and based heavily by their employee base geographic location and educational backgrounds, I would argue), was allowed to gradually slide into political operative status, rather than simply inform the public and then let the citizenry decide.   If Mr. Trump did NOTHING else right during his campaign, what he did to the media machine was needed IMO.  HOW he did it, you may disagree with all day long.  But WHAT he did?  How would one argue that he didn't do something that needed done?

    Hillary, the person?  My fellow human being?  I really do hurt for her.  She just had her life long dream, which she poured heart and soul into since her mid-teens, absolutely crushed.  I may disagree with nearly everything she stood for, and find her a nearly complete witch personality-wise, but I would wish no ones life long dream crushed just to crush it.
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries

    mmmmm..............no

    I know as a Christian I should be experiencing the same or very similar thoughts. So, my sin, in this case, is wishing her and Bill the very worse of times for their remaining lives and then pass on to whatever reward or punishment they deserve.

    Quite frankly, I'm tired of everyone who isn't in mindless lockstep with the most extreme liberal wing of the Democrat party being slandered as racist, sexist, homophobes, "Nazis" or if you are a leader figure "Hitler".

    It is part of why Trump got elected, and cheapens the suffering and deaths of 10s of millions of human beings.

    As far as letting Hillary go, no.  She is responsible for the deaths of 4 human beings SHE sent in harms way.  Either Obama or the head of the Joint Chiefs or Hillary ordered military units to stand down and not even attempt a rescue for more hours than it takes to fly from the Med, Italy, Germany or even the USA.  She might not have made the order, but she sure as hell knows who did.  We do know she wouldn't provide additional security in an Arab country that just underwent a violent revolution on the anniversary of 9/11. 


    What she did with the private server was multiple violations of numerous national security laws that service personnel are currently serving prison time for ONE instance of violating.  Word is the NY cops forced the FBI to re-open the investigation over evidence they have found. 


    Even if she hasn't been found guilty of a crime yet, how many years and crimes did it take until the "Teflon Don" went to prison?  Didn't mean he was an innocent babe in the woods, either.


    Either the law applies to us all, or it doesn't apply to anyone.  I, for one, don't want to live under king and nobles.  We fought a war to escape that.

    Exactly.   Just because Mr. Trump has backed off spending time going after her, claiming he has different things to worry about?  Well, Congress is far from done looking into the matter, and the FBI isn't quite done yet either.

    What I think is ironic is all the people condemning Trump as Hitler......threw a hissy fit when Obama was called that.   And even "I" thought calling Obama Hitler was idiotic.
