Are we kidding? :no:

This chick looks like she has more testosterone than the Morehouse football team. Pass.

Women might go to Jamaica to sleep with men, but no man is going to Jamaica to patrol for women. Thats a fact.
The main reason you don't like her is because she's dark.  We already know you like women who look like men (your transsexual post ) but they have to be light and dayum near white.:popcorn:

EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM.

SPRINGFIELD 1903 - ISSUED FOR USE 1903 IN THE PHILLIPINES UNTIL WWII. IT WAS THE ONLY WEAPON PROVEN TO PUT DOWN A CHARGING ENEMY WITH A SINGLE .30 CAL ROUND, ALONG WITH TH3E CLASSIC M1911 .45 CAL PISTOL

CAN'T REALLY TELL FROM THE ILLUSTRATION? #1 AND OR #2 MAY BOTH BE SPRINGFIELD 1903s

M1 CARBINE - WWII - ISSUED TO LEADERS AND TANKERS DUE TO ITS SHORT LENGTH

M1 GARAND - WWII - STAND ISSUE WITH AN 8-ROUND CLIP. HAD A DISTINTIVE PING AFTER THE LAST ROUND WAS FIRED AND THE CLIP WAS EJECTD. GIs HATED THIS FEATURE BECAUSE IT TOLD THE ENEMY WHEN YOU WERE OUT OF ROUNDS AND HAD TO RE-LOAD. IT IS USED TODAY PRIMARILY FOR CEREMONY AS THE M16 IS A CLUMSY WEAPON TO DRILL WITH.

M14 - KOREA UNTIL VIETNAM (A MODIFIED VERSION IS SOMETIMES USED AS A SNIPER RIFLE.)

M16 - VIETNAM (PUT INTO SERVICE JUST BEFORE VIETNAM WAR)

M16 A3 - SNIPER VERSION WITH FRONT HANDLE AND MOUNTED SCOPE.  VIETNAM (STANDARD ISSUE AFTER MOFIFICATIONS TO BARREL WHICH WAS NOTORIOUS FOR GETTING CAUGHT IS THE BRUSH)

M4 (A MODIFIED SHORT BARREL M16. COULD NOT FIRE FULL AUTOMATIC BUT FIRED 3-ROUND BURSTS) - POST 1975

M4 CARBINE - POST 1975 (THE WEAPON "OLD SPORT" CLAIMS TO HAVE USED IN VIETNAM, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT ISSUED TO U.S. TROOPS UNTIL AFTER THE END OF THE VIETNAM WAR IN 1975.)  IF IT IS ONE THING A TRUE SOLDIER KNOWS IT IS THE WEAPON HE CARRIES ON WHICH HIS VERY LIFE DEPENDS.)  THE M4 A4 IS STANDARD ISSUE TODAY.

^^^AND, in addition to what CIAA just posted, I suspect that the New York State attorney general will ultimately convene a grand jury or two, seeking SEVERAL indictments involving this UTTERLY corrupt Trump family and its minions/sycophants.  :nod:

THIS INITIAL REPORT IS ONLT THE BEGINNING.  :popcorn:

Special Counsel Mueller not recommending any further indictments.

YES.  THE 37 INDICTMENTS IN 22 MONTHS ALREADY DONE SHOULD BE MORE THAN ENOUGH. BARR WILL CONSULT WITH MUELLER THIS WEEKEND TO SEE WHAT THEY ARE COING TO MAKE PUBLIC. FUNNY HOW YOU ALWAS CAN BE COUNTED ON TO TELL LESS THAN THE ENTIRE STORY. :popcorn:

SECOND SENTENCING IN D.C. COURTS - 13 MARCH 2019

Judge Amy Berman Jackson has handed down her sentence to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. She sentenced him to 73 months in prison, and 30 months of the sentence she imposed will overlap with his Virginia sentence of just under four years. With the 47-month sentence in the Virginia case, Manafort's total sentence is 90 months, or 7.5 years.

Trump-Signed Bibles Are Selling On eBay For More Than $500
BY Chris Walker March 12, 2019


Depending on your viewpoint of the commander-in-chief (or separately, your deference to religious symbols), news that President Donald Trump had autographed Bibles for victims of storms in Alabama last week either inspired or shocked you.

Though some may have felt outraged at the president for doing so, it apparently wasn’t the first time that Trump had signed Bibles. He reportedly signed Bibles, believed by nearly a quarter of American Christians to be the literal word of God, in 2016 during his campaign stops across the country.

None of the Bibles last week have been offered up for financial gain quite yet, it seems, but one of those 2016 Bibles signed by Trump was placed on the bidding website eBay by user GraphwizardCollectibles, reported KWTX out of Waco, Texas. And the “good book” wasn’t going for cheap, which means more of the signed Bibles could be up for sale sometime soon.

The signature itself in the eBay listing for the Trump-signed Bible was never authenticated, but the user selling the item suggested that the autographed book was signed by Trump in person. The listing also claimed that the book was “unopened,” although the signature is found on the inside cover of the Bible itself.

Unfortunately for those hoping to buy the 4.5-inch by 3-inch mini Bible, the listing appears to have been taken down. The account that was selling the Bible, too, appears to have been suspended: Although graphwizardcollectibles has been a user since 2015 with 200 positive reviews, eBay said the account is “no longer a registered user.”

Many people took issue with Trump signing the Bibles during his surveying of disaster areas in Alabama. But many religious leaders stopped short of calling the action heretical. Still, some individuals, including Rev. Donnie Anderson, the executive minister of the Rhode Island State Council of Churches, said the move was more political than religious, and took offense to Trump’s misuse of the Bible, according to reporting from the Associated Press.

Politics / Re: TRUMP'S TRANSCRIPTS FROM FORDHAM UNIVERSITY
« on: March 10, 2019, 05:26:49 PM »

Guess what K----? What you posted is not a disqualifying feature for being POTUS.

No one said having a 1.3 grade point average disqualifies a person from being President of the United States.  :shrug:

However, if the president had a 1.3 grade point average in college, I think it would be newsworthy. 1. It either shows he's not very intelligent or it shows that he didn't take his studies seriously. 2. He claimed to be a really smart stable genius. A 1.3 average would be inconsistent with that claim.  :shrug:

Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top TV Star to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius ... and a very stable genius at that!”

I thought if someone had grades that low, he would be placed on academic probation or kicked out of school. I did not know one could graduate with a G{A that low.

Depends on the amount of the check his pops wrote...  :shrug:

HE DID NOT GRADUATE FROM FORDHAM.

Democracy Dies in Darkness

By  Paul Waldman

Opinion writer
March 6
The story of Donald Trump, Michael Cohen and the president’s desperate efforts to make sure the public never saw his school records may seem relatively unimportant, even if it reveals something about Trump’s insecurities. But it’s actually an important part of the story of this entire era, of Barack Obama and the racial backlash that put Trump in the White House, a backlash that is ongoing and will feature prominently in the 2020 campaign.

In one of the more colorful moments in Cohen's recent testimony before the House, the former Trump factotum explained how his boss ordered him to contact his high schools and colleges and deliver a threat: If Trump's transcripts or test scores were ever to see the light of day, there'd be trouble. 

TOO LATE.  HIS FORDHAM UNIVERSITY TRANSCRIPT HAS ALREADY GONE VIRAL. IF YOU WANT A COPY, JUST CONTACT ME ON ONNIDAN MESSENGER AND PROVIDE AN E-MAIL ADDRESS THAT I CAN REPLY TO.


Cohen on Trump's SAT scores Michael Cohen said in his Feb. 27 testimony that President Trump directed him “to threaten” academic institutions regarding the release of his SAT scores. (Reuters)

Fordham University, which Trump attended before transferring to the University of Pennsylvania, soon confirmed that it did indeed receive a threatening letter from Cohen, as did the New York Military Academy, where Trump went to high school. And now The Post’s Marc Fisher has more details about how concerned some of Trump’s friends were:

In 2011, days after Donald Trump challenged President Barack Obama to “show his records” to prove that he hadn’t been a “terrible student,” the headmaster at New York Military Academy got an order from his boss: Find Trump’s academic records and help bury them.

The superintendent of the private school “came to me in a panic because he had been accosted by prominent, wealthy alumni of the school who were Mr. Trump’s friends” and who wanted to keep his records secret, recalled Evan Jones, the headmaster at the time. “He said, ‘You need to go grab that record and deliver it to me because I need to deliver it to them.’ ”

Obviously, if Trump were a straight-A student who aced his SATs, he would have been more than happy to have those records made public. But why would it have mattered so much even if he wasn’t? Who would really care whether a man in his 70s got a C in history class a half century ago?

It’s more than just embarrassment. The answer lies in the narrative Trump was writing, not just about himself but about Obama and the entire American system.

That narrative told white voters that their resentments and disappointments were both perfectly valid and not their fault. When Trump told them that the system was “rigged” against them, he wasn’t talking about wealth and power. He was talking about white people supposedly being held back, by immigrants and undeserving black people who had been pushed ahead of them to the front of the line.

Central to that picture was the idea that Obama was the most undeserving of all. Trump turned himself from a reality show character to a political figure by becoming the country’s most prominent advocate of birtherism, the racist theory that Obama was not a real American but, in fact, had been born in Kenya.

What may be not quite as well remembered is that Trump also repeatedly demanded that Obama release his transcripts, and claimed over and over that Obama could not possibly have gotten into Columbia University and Harvard Law School on merit. “I heard he was a terrible student, terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?” Trump said. “I have friends who have smart sons with great marks, great boards, great everything and they can’t get into Harvard.”

In other words, Obama must have been given a spot that should have gone to a more worthy person, who obviously would have been white (and it's no small irony that Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner almost certainly was admitted to Harvard only because his father made a well-timed $2.5 million donation to the school).

By any objective measure, this is a bizarre claim. Whatever you might think of Obama’s presidency, one thing you can’t say is that he isn’t smart and talented. If he had been admitted to college or law school because of affirmative action, you couldn’t imagine a better advertisement for affirmative action. But that’s precisely why he presents such a threat to Trump himself and the larger story he tells.

On a personal level, we know that Trump is desperately insecure about his intelligence. People who are actually smart don't go around telling you how smart they are, but Trump regularly feels it necessary to proclaim himself a genius; here's a representative stream-of-consciousness soliloquy from 2016, which actually began as a rumination on nuclear weapons:

Look, having nuclear — my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart — you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world.

The subtext of Trump’s repeated claims to genius and his criticisms of Obama was that electing him would replace the falsely intelligent and undeserving president (Obama) with an actually intelligent and deserving president (himself).

By 2016, that was a message the conservative base was eager to hear. They’d spent the previous eight years being told by media figures such as Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck that Obama’s entire presidency was oriented around showering benefits on lazy, undeserving black people while whites were marginalized and discriminated against. From hoaxes such as “Obamaphones” to the repeated claim that any policy initiative Obama pursued was “reparations” aimed at taking money from white people and giving it to black people, the voters who became Trump’s base knew this story well.

Which brings us to 2020. Lately, the Democratic candidates have gotten questions about reparations, and a number of them have responded that yes, we should have a concerted effort to deal with the long legacy of racism that continues to harm African Americans today in areas such as homeownership. However, they’re pointedly not talking about some kind of cash payment to the descendants of slaves, which is what people commonly understand the term “reparations” to mean.

But sooner or later, Trump is going to hit hard on “reparations,” and of course he’ll lie about what Democrats actually support. The message will be that while Trump has restored people such as you to their rightful place atop society’s hierarchy (America made great again) and if the Democrat wins, the natural order will once again be reversed.

The message will be: Fear the immigrants, hate the foreigners, resent the minorities profiting at your expense. After all, it worked in 2016, didn’t it?
