Even the threat of the military seems like it has scaled back protests. Sorry, sometimes the Trumpser is correct.

Byron Funkhouser said...


Everyone except Der Fuhrer knows he can't do that.

Eventually he'll give an order that the military cannot bring itself to obey, then we'll have a constitutional crises.

I know the military will choose The Constitution.

Anonymous said...

^^^ the constitution respects the authority of the commander in chief. You're a bum Byron and you don't know what you're talking about. Again.

Anonymous said...

Byron, you are an idiot. Of course, he can call out the military.
Watch him do it. And his guns are a lot bigger than your guns.
Might makes right.

Byron got kicked out of the military. He and his wife are a con team. Don't worry Byron , you get our money at midnight. Prove me wrong you slime bag piece of shit. He can't and won't. The VFW, Foreign Legion etc in his town knows all about him and he would never dare step foot in them.

8:54 bLIEron doesn’t have guns.... or balls for that matter. Biggest. Pussy. Evar.

He can nationalize the states guard
Whether he does or not remains to be seen
But what we are seeing is results of democrat party governance in cities and states run top to bottom by democrats. The people in those cities are the result of years of being told that everybody else is against them, so they act out as we see
Now we hear from people saying that the whole country is to blame for democrats burning their cities down
Not me. I feel zero guilt for anything happens in New York or Chicago or Kansas City
You and your party created this monster, so don’t blame me when your creation blows a gasket

Has Trump emerged from the bunker tonight? Are the lights at the a White House turned off again? Where’s Donnie hiding tonight?

I’ve come to the conclusion that bLIEron and his crazy conspiracies and lies are being paid for by George soros, it makes sense, nobody would come here daily and spread lies that have been easily debunked. At some point you’d think he'd have a come to Jesus moment and realize that he sold his soul to a crazy senile old man. Man up and get your self respect back.

bLIEron, you’re just a bitter old man that’s fading off into the sunset, your best days never happened. Do something good for a change so at least on your death bed you can think about the one good thing you did before you die but you better hurry, your days are numbered.

9:02 it’s not trump that’s hiding, it’s the entire dimwit party, they’re all in rapey joes basement! Hahahahaha!

Seriously, has anybody seen them?

Rapey joe obiden has only came up for air twice in 80 days, that’s 80 days people. Where’s he gonna hide if by some miracle he becomes prez?

@9:15 it's a proven fact that the crazy Right Wing Conspiracy Theories come out of the Cato Institute and the rest of the spectrum of anti-Government organizations set up by the Koch Family.
Their long history of anti-Government theories stems from the John Birch Society, founded by the present Koch Brother's father, Fred.

They struggle to keep their activities out of the public eye, but their efforts since the 1950s have all been aimed at keeping the US Government weakened and unable to regulate their activities, whether it be stealing Oil from Native American Reservation Lands (the foundation of their fortune) to Union Busting, to vengeance against former employees, up to and probably including fatal "accidents".

All this is disguised by their repeated advocacy of the label "Libertarian", while at the same time acting in direct contravention to the principles of Libertarianism.

That is where the real wealth and funding in current American Politics comes from, and they apparently are now actively campaigning to try to promote their flunky, Pompeo as a viable Presidential Candidate. Compared to the Kochs, Soros is a piker.

To the black pizza business owner. You are scum and not a protester but a racist rioter and I will make sure to tell white people about you. Thanks for the info that you are basically saying you don't want white people in your place. I will be sure to pass that on. Hope to see you close down SOON! You have no right to do well after what you have done.

Anonymous said...

Nah CHUD, he just doesn’t want good-for-nothing geezers like you there! Hell, nobody does!

Anonymous said...

You'd think the black pizza shop owner would be far more determined to stop the black-on-black crime that is far more prevalent. Maybe he's scared that the black criminals would come after him if he tried to stop that. Protesting on the Plaza is likely far safer.

Trump really likes the Old Testament and New Testament equally.

Anonymous said...

Two Corinthians walk into a bar... One of the best bits of the newest testament. A favorite quoted by many.

Meanwhile, if you stopped watching Fox and saw a real news report, you would have seen Biden in churches making several statements about the protests and unrest. He doesn't stage phony photo ops holding a hotel bible. Biden is going to the funeral to pray with the community.

Trump, after his short walk through the tear gas and carnage, saw his wide shadow and retreated back to his bunker. 6 more months of autocracy.
