Editor: “Make America White Again”. Really, Madam Speaker? Is there anything else you can think of to further divide this country? Is it your goal for people of color to automatically distrust and dislike me because I am politically conservative? So many on the Left side of the aisle, including many of color, seem hell bent on destroying all the many advances we have made in race relations.

When I was a young airman stationed in the South, I saw overt segregation up close and personal. For a kid from Southern California I was shocked to my soul. But at the other end of my lifetime I saw a black man elected President of the United States. Did all those white voters just set aside their racism to be politically correct? Constantly calling President Trump a racist based on a misquote from Charlottesville or because he wants to defend our borders, does our country a huge disservice, yet it continues on a daily basis. Why? Are you willing to do this much damage to our country for some votes? For all our sakes, but mostly for our youth, argue the issues and knock off the race baiting that is killing our country.

[ohmy] Too lengthy copy and paste[yawn][yawn All I know is Trump 2020[beam]

Rave on DOTs but fully understand you are still backing a low-life.

Proudindependent

What's even sadder is defense of lunacy by claiming someone else did something just as bad. A lie is a lie, morally corrupt can't be defended. If you accept bad behavior you encourage and are part of the problem. Those who claim to be conservative should stand by their morals and not accept anything less from our leaders, or are they only conservative when it fits their agenda?

LMFAO @ Hwy. Tell us what its like having no life, and hating yourself and America so badly that you'll copy & paste all this trash in the comments section of the paper. Noone will read your rant - because that's all it is.

1) "...argue the issues...", 2) Who is this "noone" person you keep talking about?

That noise? That’s Rovr standing with his thumb firmly inserted into his pie hole, all red faced with the other hand grasping Mama’s skirt! [angry]

Not to worry Rovr, Officer DK is “on the job” with the G & S Police in “Comments Land”! Officer King will ferret out this TYPO and insert a space between “no” and “one” so your small mind can get the point of what DJU was saying! [beam]

Left wing SNOPES admits Obama built cage to hold migrant children. https://pjmedia.com/trending/snopes-admits-obama-built-cages-for-immigrant-children/?fbclid=IwAR3VFjmbI1tMsELd-XgeL-9N0KFgCPqb1NDsN9uuWjlsQhlSL4M1YzFdkD8

The provided link does not lead to Snopes, it leads to PJ Media (originally known as Pajamas Media) an American right-wing opinion blog was founded in 2004. Its majority owner is right-wing billionaire, Aubrey Chernick. PJ Media operated the online television and video network PJTV, until it failed on 11 May 2016. In September 2013, former right-wing congressman Allen West was fired from PJ Media after an altercation with a female staffer he called a "Jewish American princess." Not really “proof” of anything regarding the issue at hand.

Just a few of idiot trump’s accomplishments - Withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The trade deal would have established a trade partnership between the United States and countries on the Pacific Rim. Reversal of a rule that would mandate that oil and gas companies report payments to foreign governments. The Securities and Exchange Commission will no longer receive this information. Ended limits on the ability of states to drug test those seeking unemployment benefits. Repeal of a rule allowing states to create retirement savings plans for private-sector workers. Repeal of a bill that mandated that employers maintain records of workplace injuries. Killed a rule mandating that government contractors disclose past violations of labor law. Promotes buy USA, but everything he and his family sells is made in third world countries. Rescinded an Obama effort to reduce mandatory sentences. Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered that prosecutors seek the most stringent penalties possible in criminal cases. Reversed the government’s position on a voter ID law in Texas. Under the Obama administration, the Justice Department argued that the law had discriminatory intent. Under Sessions, Justice withdrew that complaint. On Wednesday, a federal court threw out the law. Reviewed Justice Department efforts to address problematic police departments. An effort to address concerns in the Baltimore Police Department was delayed. Withdrew from the Paris climate agreement. Blocked the Clean Power Plan. The plan implemented under Obama focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. Ended a study on the health effects of mountaintop-removal mining. The process involves blasting away the tops of hills and mountains to get at coal seams under the surface. Rescinded a rule mandating that rising sea levels be considered when building public infrastructure in flood-prone areas. Reversed an Obama ban on drilling for oil in the Arctic. Reviewed the status of national monuments for possible reversal. In April, Trump signed an executive order ordering a review of monuments added in the past 20 years, opening up the possibility that some areas previously set aside would have that status revoked. Withdrew a rule regulating fracking on public land. Reversed a ban on plastic bottles at national parks. Rescinded a limit on the number of sea animals that can be trapped or killed in fishing nets. Delayed and potentially rolled back automotive fuel efficiency standards. Repealed the Waters of the United States rule. This rule expanded the definition of water bodies that were protected by the Environmental Protection Agency. Ended a rule banning dumping waste from mining into streams. Reversed a rule banning hunting bears and wolves. The ban applied to federal refuges in Alaska and prohibited hunting predators using certain methods. Repealed a rule that would have centralized federal land management. Removed a bike-sharing station at the White House. Foreign policy and immigration Cut the number of migrants and refugees allowed from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Repealed a rule allowing transgender individuals to serve in the military. Rolled back of Obama’s outreach to the Cuban government. Ended the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program. DAPA extended protections for some immigrant parents whose children were citizens of or residents in the United States. Withdrew federal protections for transgender students in schools. Under the rule approved by Obama, transgender students could use school bathrooms that corresponded to their gender identities. . Reversed a rule that mandated how achievement is measured in schools. Repealed a rule mandating certain requirements for teacher-preparation programs. Other policy areas Revoked a ban on denying funding for Planned Parenthood at the state level. Repealed a rule mandating that Internet service providers seek permission before selling personal information. Reversed a rule that would ban gun sales to those deemed “mentally defective” by the government. Slow or nonexistent staffing at the Senate-confirmed and management level across administration agencies. Repealed a rule mandating consolidation of transit planning authorities. Trump tells his golf buddies the White House is a dump. Repeal restrictions on police access to excess military gear, allowing the federal government to immediately resume handing out free bayonets, grenade launchers, tracked armored vehicles such as tanks and other equipment to law enforcement departments around the country.

"...argue the issues..." - Okay, explain the following: 1) He promised Mexico would pay for the wall, but now wants to saddle the American taxpayers with an expensive (well over $5 billion) ego edifice wall that will solve nothing, outside of proving yet again that walls don’t work. . 2) He promised he would replace the ACA – called Obamacare by the intellectually stunted - and it would cost us less and cover more people. However insurance companies are telling us with the abandonment of the individual mandate, rates are already increasing by 30% to 40% per year and will cover fewer people. 3) He promised he would release his taxes after he took office. He hasn't yet released them and is threatening to “sue Congress” to prevent the American people seeing the truth. What is he hiding? 4) He promised he would solve our trade deficit. After launching his trade wars, our trade deficit surged to an all time high. 5) He promised he would solve the budget deficit. Instead it has already doubled under his so-called leadership. 6) He promised us a better deal with Iran. But under the "new Trump deal" Iran can pursue nukes TODAY. And now he is lying (no surprise there) in hopes of leading us into yet another war. 7) Admittedly he did promise during the campaign that if we voted for Hillary, we'd have a president constantly under Federal investigation. And in that, he was correct.

1) Donald Trump kicked off his 2016 presidential bid by immigrants.” They are not our friend, believe me," he said. "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." 2) Trump said during a meeting in June that Haitians "all have AIDS." The White House vehemently denied the report. 3) Trump said that Nigerian immigrants wouldn't ever "go back to their huts" in Africa. 4) Trump said that Afghanistan is a "terrorist haven." 5) During the 2016 presidential election, Trump called out a Gold Star Muslim family and insinuated the mother wasn't talking because she was Muslim. "If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably wasn't allowed to have anything to say. You tell me," Trump said in an interview with ABC News in July. 6) In May 2016, Trump said that federal judge Gonzalo Curiel couldn't hear the Trump University case fairly because he's Mexican. "We're building a wall between here and Mexico. The answer is, He is giving us very unfair rulings—rulings that people can't even believe," he said. 7) Before his career as a politician, Trump wouldn't rent to black people in the 1970s. This led to his company being sued twice by the Justice Department for discrimination. 8) He was called a racist after he said this to Navajo Code Talkers: "I just want to thank you because you're very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here, although we have a representative in Congress who, they say, was here a long time ago. They call her 'Pocahontas.' But you know what, I like you because you are special. You are special people." 8) Trump claimed President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. 9) When Trump addressed the Republican Jewish Coalition in December 2015, he called himself "a negotiator like you folks," bringing up Jewish stereotypes. 10) Trump said, "Laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that." 11) The president blamed "many sides" for neo-Nazi violence last year. 12) Trump retweeted anti-Muslim propaganda from a far-right British group. 13) During the 2016 presidential election, Trump pointed to a black man and said, "Look at my African-American over there." 14) He retweeted false statistics about white homicide victims after a black activist was kicked and punched at one of Trump's rallies in Alabama. 14) Trump asked African-American reporter April Ryan to set up a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus. Prior to this exchange, he said that many African-Americans were "living in hell," in reference to conditions in inner cities.

Such a long list and I'm sure you have missed some. When asked for examples, I could only remember have of what you listed. I have sent a copy of this to some that wanted proof and they didn't know he has said so much. Yes, the loser in the people's house is a racist-in-chief.

It is sad to think that these comments (that turned out to be mostly untrue) generated enough votes in our country to get him elected.

And "HavasuGuy", with the current 23 or 24 occupants of the Democratic Party "Clown Bus" 2020, will be re-elected for "four more years" with his two terms expiring in 2025! Bring it on Rovr! [beam]
