You may be right (no idea what OAN is), but does that still make it right?

"That's a scary interview, well it would be if Trump had won. I suspect if any of that is true, once he is out of the Whitehouse there will be all sorts of official leaked documents about his time as president."

What struck me more was how vicious it was from both the interviewer and interviewee.

It may all be true, I really don't know, but there wasn't even a semblance of an attempt at balance.

And, of course, those who hate Trump will just lap it up.

Nope, not at all.  Don't associate her with Corbyn at all, her schtick has always been (to me at least) anti-Brexit and Russian interference unless you can tell me different.

Don't like either of them, but this is the danger of publishing unproven allegations and then doubling down on them.

This is the problem with all of this.

I did a quick search on him and he has a linkedin profile here:

https://www.linkedin.com/in/john-paul-mac-isaac-ab401068

He appears to have been in business for at least 8-10 years with his Mac repair shop.  It will all come out eventually as to what happened and the aftermath, but I came across this comment that I found at least sympathetic to him...

The sad thing about this is that it will give English media the chance to play endless clips of the 'hand of God'.

Good.  If there's no substance then it deserves to.

I actually watched that Tucker clip and agreed with everything he said about this.  He was happy to invite her on, give her as much time as she needed, but she refused to provide any semblance of evidence and eventually asked them to stop contacting her.

You can only come to one conclusion.

Which glaring facts would these be?

That he isn't now scheduling public engagements and his Presidency is almost over?  No problem there at all...

As for you regarding me as less than I am, I've gotten used to that over the last 4 years.

"I'm confused as to what you feel you have to be defending, and why you feel you need to be defending it? 🤔"

Because I'm fine with legitimate criticism, I just abhor criticism for the sake of the narrative.

Trump either does f*** all except tweet and play golf (which was the previous narrative) or he actually had a full diary of Presidential events.

If it's the former, then how is there surprise at an empty diary?

The truth is probably in-between (as it was with Obama) but it doesn't fit the narrative.

"This is true. Helped mainly by Trump basically giving up on being president and doing nothing since the morning after the Election apart from tweeting the same desperate lies over & over."

And yet everyone has been banging on about how little work Trump has done as he spends all his time golfing.  Same accusation was levelled at Obama if I recall correctly.

So which is it?  Empty calendar due to Trump giving up or because he's lazy and plays loads of golf?

God, I hate having to defend s*** like this...

I feel a bit like Pacino in Godfather 3:

"Bizarre, though, that voter fraud is only being alleged in a handful of states, and none of those states being the ones narrowly won by Trump."

Hardly, it would make no sense to allege fraud in states that you won just in case any investigation actually overturns the result.  And no one from the Democrats is alleging fraud.

This is why I've always be of the opinion that it would make sense to audit all the voting as I can't believe that the only individuals engaged in fraud would all be Democrats.

To be fair, I've never thought that.

I've always believed that it was isolated to individuals.

RE: The Trump Presidency

I'm at that point now where whilst I still think there was some fraudulent activity (based on charges laid against individuals), I really don't think the Trump campaign has anything noteworthy.

As I've said previously I think there has been fraud and that it wouldn't affect the result, but I'm also coming to the conclusion that Giuliani and the female lawyer whose name I can't remember are just gaslighting everyone (and I hate that term)...

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency



OK, so here's what I want to know.

1. how many states bought this software/hardware?
2. how many of those states were won by Biden and how many won by Trump?
3. what is the estimate of votes that flipped per state and who to?

This shouldn't be too hard to put into the public domain, surely?

I don't know who she is, other than appears to be held in high regard, but this seems to me to be taking on the feel of a massive sting on the Republicans that will bite them on the a r s e very shortly...
