http://va.newsrepublic.net/s/wRMQbv]Donald Trump Winning

Piers suggests DT is winning and, looking at his accomplishments, he could be right.

He makes a telling argument regarding the Democrats crying wolf to the extent that people are getting tired.

Six pipe bombs with added shrapnel and possibly unidentified powder sent to democrats (Clintons, Obamas, Soros, former DMC chair, CNN, NY Gov. in NY ,FL, DC and Calif.
All intercepted - so far.
No injuries.
Might be very interesting to find out just who is the source, especially considering all the other current events.

False flag. Why send a bomb to Clinton or Obama if it's someone on the right? Every time they open their mouth more people leave the left and vote republican. Also, this is a deflection from the 'caravan' invasion which has gone completely the wrong way for those Dems supporting unchecked immigration. Pretty much everyone of voting age notwithstanding party thinks that these invaders be stopped before crossing the border.

Could be a "deflection" for all sorts of things.

Whomever sent those things: I would like to see them caught and hammered. More Unibombers we don't need.

Or other morons thinking it's a neat idea.

Have seen one image of a device. No one has commented on the detonator so far. What is taped to the pipe section, with wires attached, looks like a cassette tape!

We Got Your Message!

Gee, all the bomb targets were people that the Trumpster has verbally targeted on his preaching to the faithful choir tour. There wouldn't be any connection would there?

No, you just have to be stupid not to see the connection.

Oh I sure see the connection. Difference is, some of us are playing with Rooks, Knights, and Bishops, while you are still using the black and red round plastic disks.

While you and your friends are playing with your Rooks, Knights and Bishops, take some time out and see how your 401K investments are doing. Perhaps the game you should be playing is Motte & Bailey...

And -- a deflection is in order! Nicely turned. Back to the 'bombs'. Rather than Clinton and Obama as recipients, anyone on the right with a brain would target Booker and maybe SacajeWarren. Clinton and Obama are so last century. Waste of galv pipe...

Turbine, you appear to be clueless about the workings of the stock market. Every rise -- EVERY one -- is followed by a correction. This is said correction. It doesn't matter if the excuse is Pipe Bombs, Italy, or Marching through Mexico.

When the market is back up, in a few months, I expect you will be silent then.

Given the way the Democrats have behaved since Donald Trump beat them, starting with riots and arson, rounding up any Democrat women who thinks she may have met a Republican in a lift and accusing him of rape, complete failure to accept the Democrats lost because they ran a crap campaign with the wrong candidate I wouldn't put it past some loony Democrat to have initiated the bombs themselves in the hope of influencing the mid term elections.

Ascribing any kind of personal attribution to my statement is way beyond a stretch. 'Anyone' is completely non-specific, also 'would' is a comparitor to in this case a lesser(useless) method.

What a sad situation when a micro-aggression leads to personalizing obvious internet banter. Going to call a three letter agency are you? I'm sure they'll get right on your complaint. Make sure you spell it right; "ethicalconundrum"

“I take the apology back,” she said during an appearance Monday on “The View.” She then punctuated her statement with an expletive directed at Trump. She also said she was sorry, not sorry for her attacks on Trump’s oldest sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, whom she referred to as “Eddie Munster and date rape.”

The vice-president Of Which Party was publicly called out during a performance of Hamilton? The members of whose staff were publically abused and thrown out a restaurant in Washington?

It strikes me that those complaining so loudly in the left should buy a mirror.

Shoring up sandcastles ....

Instead of making a direct line between Trump denouncing his opponents various as disloyal, criminal, and even "enemies of the people," and then some dimwit sending pipe bombs to Obama and the Clintons ... nah, that's what "they" want us to think! Instead of this being a logical extension of what Trump has said, how much more clever it is to guess that it would have to be supporters of Obama and the Clintons who sent those bombs, turning Trump's words into action.

Let me make a wild supposition and say now that the Secret Service is going to find some Trump-loving Yahoo behind the sending of those bombs. Yes, it could have been Elizabeth Warren who did this, but I really don't think so.

EC's sort of logic is pretty much the same as that which underpins "9/11 was a false-flag operation," and "Sandy Hook used actors; nobody died then." Of course if you can swallow someone repeatedly suggesting that Obama's birth certificate is a fake, and that Ted Cruz's father was involved in the assassination of JFK, then it should be easy to make this jump of illogic too, to see that it must have been some Democrats perpetrating bomb attacks on prominent Democrats.

Moving right along, EC, are you cool with Trump finding the King of Saudi Arabia's "very strong denials" so persuasive? First, do you really think that Trump is unaware of who the real power behind the throne is, Mohammed bin Salman, so that whether the King was involved or not really does not matter? Then, that Trump, this fellow who prides himself on his being such a genius at reading people on short acquaintance turns out to be very easily fooled, by Vladimir Putin, by Kim Jong Un, and now by King Salman and by Prince bin Salman ... doesn't that suggest that your own faith in Trump is misplaced? The guy is no genius, EC; he's not even very good when it comes to having a basic understanding of when he's being conned himself, so what does that tell us about your own intelligence and smarts, believing in such a stupid conman? (Intelligence: knowing that the tomato is a fruit. Smarts: knowing not to put tomato into a fruit salad.)

It won't matter very much if things go as I hope they do, with a massive and relatively sudden undoing of Trump's gimcrack rule and his gimcrack business empire too, with perhaps his two idiot sons and his idiot son-in-law all having to go mow grass down in Florida at that VIP prison we run. Why not? Because the easily conned will just latch on to the next huckster to come along.

Look at how it goes with these dodgy televangelists, one after another being unmasked as fake. Does that tell their victims to stop looking for fake saviors, to perhaps study theology itself for answers to their questions? No, of course not! They just find another one, someone who has not actually been indicted, tried and convicted, to follow. Or ... they even have gone back to Jim Bakker once he's back out on the street and up to his old games. This is that segment of our population Lincoln named as those who can be fooled "all of the time," when they have just as much right to a vote as those who actually know and respect reality.

We'll know in less than two weeks from now if Democrats win the House and start in right away on Trump, or else whether we have to wait another two or even six years for history to deal with this fellow. In either case, that wad of dimbulbs who are Trump's victims, and his supporters too, are not going away. They will just sit there simmering with discontent over the rough way that reality treats them until the next chance comes along to pervert reality, to pay it back for not being the way they want it to be.

What we are stuck with right now is a President who wants to turn back the clock to the Fifties, when we sat unchallenged on a heap of nukes, dominating the globe: America First! (How ignorant the man is? Ignorant enough even to use that slogan, never seeming to know where it came from in the first place. Well, yeah, that's "history," when Trump supposedly learned "economics" instead.)
