Looks like Trump was hiding the fact that he's exactly the type of person who would want to be pissed on.
Spanked in the sack? Ow!

Bobbi Bauer prays during an election night event for Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone on Tuesday. Saccone narrowly trails Democrat Conor Lamb and has not yet conceded.

clearly God did not want a republican to win.
Or maybe she did the prayer wrong. Magic is tricky stuff.
Goddamn I hate our stupid system of government.

You should stay inside and be a grumpy old man.
Alright you've won me over. I'm going to take Thursday off from work so I can go loot some stores.

That's the spirit, comrade.  :cheer:
If you're around on Thursday maybe we can meet up and flip a car over together.

So should I plan for rioting on the night of the parade or are the Eagles fans all rioted out?
Sports / Re: NFL 2017
roving gangs of eagles fans still haven't dismembered TR poster "clete."

thread doesn't deliver
Maybe they already did and one of them is posing as me posting in this thread.

TR poster "teeming brown mass" never considered that possibility, I'll bet.

Yep. More sirens going on as we speak. Hooray Eagles!

My neighborhood is as quiet as it is on any night so I'm looking forward to the rubbernecking omg AMERICAN CARNAGE urban blood lust think pieces about those inherently violent city dwellers tomorrow morning because some of the trashed and high as fuck college kids went out to Broad St to start a fire.
That's cool that your neighborhood is quiet.

Mine is finally quiet after two hours of people yelling in the street, car horns honking, fireworks going off, sirens, and police helicopters flying around.

Don't be such a grouch. I was one of those assholes cheering at honking cars.

 I've been perfectly clear on how I'm using the word.  I mean, most antifa goons are fucking white, a product of white liberal education systems. You can't get any whiter than a 100 pound girl with dreadlocks bragging about collecting her Nazi scalps, throwing glass bottles at people, then getting her head kicked in, and then everyone finding out she's actually a porn actress.  That's fucking peak white person. I'd call her a degenerate.  And a fucking idiot.
I think you can get whiter than that. For example, a Nazi. 
In case anyone needed more proof that the NRA is trash:

The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency, two sources familiar with the matter have told McClatchy.

FBI counterintelligence investigators have focused on the activities of Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russia's central bank who is known for his close relationships with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and the NRA, the sources said.

However, the NRA reported spending a record $55 million on the 2016 elections, including $30 million to support Trump - triple what the group devoted to backing Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential race. Most of that was money was spent by an arm of the NRA that is not required to disclose its donors.

Two people with close connections to the powerful gun lobby said its total election spending actually approached or exceeded $70 million. The reporting gap could be explained by the fact that independent groups are not required to reveal how much they spend on Internet ads or field operations, including get-out-the-vote efforts.

Torshin, a leading figure in Putin's party, has been implicated in money laundering by judicial authorities in Spain, as Bloomberg News first revealed in 2016. Spanish investigators alleged in an almost 500-page internal report that Torshin, who was then a senator, capitalized on his government role to assist mobsters laundering funds through Spanish properties and banks, Bloomberg reported

A summary obtained by McClatchy of the still-secret report links Torshin to Russian money laundering and describes him as a godfather in a major Russian criminal organization called Taganskaya.

Investigators for three congressional committees probing Russia's 2016 operations also have shown interest in Torshin, a lifetime NRA member who has attended several of its annual conventions. At the group's meeting in Kentucky in May 2016, Torshin spoke to Donald Trump Jr. during a gala event at the group's national gathering in Kentucky in May 2016, when his father won an earlier-than-usual NRA presidential endorsement.


Torshin was a senior member of the Russian Senate and in recent years helped set up a Moscow gun rights group called Right to Bear Arms. He not only spoke with Trump Jr. at the NRA convention, but he also tried unsuccessfully to broker a meeting between Putin and the presidential candidate in 2016, according to the Times. He further sought to meet privately with the candidate himself near the 2016 NRA convention.

Torshin's ties with the NRA have flourished in recent years. In late 2015, he hosted two dinners for a high-level NRA delegation during its week-long visit to Moscow that included meetings with influential Russian government and business figures.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent letters in November to two senior Trump foreign policy aides, J.D. Gordon and Sam Clovis, seeking copies of any communications they had with or related to Torshin; the NRA; veteran conservative operative Paul Erickson; Maria Butina, a Torshin protege who ran the Russian pro-gun group he helped launch, and others linked to Torshin.

Erickson has raised funds for the NRA and is a friend of Butina's. Shortly before the NRA's May 2016 convention, he emailed Trump campaign aide Rick Dearborn about the possibility of setting up a meeting between Putin and Trump during the campaign, according to the Times.

Erickson's email to Dearborn bore the subject line "Kremlin Connection." In it, Erickson solicited advice from Dearborn and his boss, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, a top foreign policy adviser to Trump's campaign, about the best way to connect Putin and Trump.

Both Dearborn and Butina, who has been enrolled as a graduate student at American University since mid 2016, have been asked to appear before the Judiciary Committee, but so far Erickson has not, sources familiar with the matter said.

Bridges LLC, a company that Erickson and Butina established in February 2016 in Erickson's home state of South Dakota, also is expected to draw scrutiny. Public records don't reveal any financial transactions involving Bridges. In a phone interview last year, Erickson said the firm was established in case Butina needed any monetary assistance for her graduate studies -- an unusual way to use an LLC.

Erickson said he met Butina and Torshin when he and David Keene, a former NRA president, attended a meeting of Right to Bear Arms a few years ago in Moscow. Erickson described the links between Right to Bear Arms and the NRA as a "moral support operation both ways."

this country resembles argentina more and more each day :awgee:
Damn Nutbag Republican Army.
The scat tape is also real.
I thought the bloody nose strategy just involved Trump snorting a shitload of coke all day every day.

Elba would be good but Gillian Anderson already offered...

In other news...:

Also, Trump's performance in the meeting as a whole (or what was reported of it) doesn't seem to go over well in the Breitbart comment section.
Just checked the Breitbart comments and they were truly marvelous.
