While I feel like there are big problems with his ban from social media, it's his own damn fault for choosing these methods as his public relations platform.

Is this some weird whataboutism or what? What are you trying to say?

The problem is clearly the content of Trump's "public relations" and not his chosen method of "public relations."

All these morons crying about Trump's permaban on social media are the same morons who CANCELLED Keap's career, let alone the Dixie Chicks'

Just bring up the fact that if any American (privately owned) social media platform allowed jihadist terrorists to openly spew hatred and a violent insurrection against the US, they would be burning down the company HQs faster than those morons breeched the Capitol walls. Shuts them right up.

Fundamental truth - absolutely warranted (and far too late) that he's been de-platformed.

Consideration for reality - a lot of people don't understand what the first amendment actually means, covers and how it's applied from a legal standpoint.

I would suggest people start with that - and focus attention on people who DO (or should) know such as the hosts at Fox "News" and Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz who are constantly complaining about the President suddenly losing his first amendment right to free speech.

For starters, he can literally say anything he wants if he simply calls a press conference in the White House.

He hasn't lost his free speech and even having to comment on that is a testament to how utterly pitiful our country's grasp of the constitution has become, particularly when you think of all of the people who have been put in jail and silenced due to nothing more than their political beliefs.

He can call a press conference and say whatever he wants. I am sure that Fox will air it. However, he can't use the platform of a private business to operate in his completely secure crib to incite violence with impunity.

Let him face the reporters and answer the questions.

Hahah, this report is great. Trumps lawyers told him if he pardons himself it may open him up for more civil lawsuits as it could be seen as an admission of guilt. So since he can’t pardon himself, he doesn’t want to pardon anyone else either

Hard to read but according to that, the coup was an attempt for trump to lead into Marshal law. Horrible but clever

I think it suggests martial law if anyone gets upset about the coup. I do like the blame it on China/Iran line.

Pardon pros:

- Pardoning insurrectionists would be a massive thumb in the eye of the establishment
- Pardons would earn some undying loyalty

Pardon cons:

- The insurrectionists had one job to do...
- Arrested insurrectionists are blaming Trump for their actions
- Who's going to pay for a mass pardon?

Pardon pro:
Every president from now on can incite an insurrection and if the insurrectionists don't win, no harm no foul, they'll get a pardon. If the insurrectionists win, hey, extra term.

So pardons for lil Wayne, Steve Bannon, and reversing his own rule that banned lobbying by White House staffers for 5 years, meant to “drain the swamp.” Truly a champion of the people.

Trump's 2020 campaign was full of funding solicitations containing prechecked boxes designed to suck more funds out of the donor:

Quote :
"For example, one pre-checked box read, in large, boldface type: “This is the FINAL month until Election Day and we need EVERY Patriot stepping up if we’re going to WIN FOUR MORE YEARS for President Trump. He’s revitalizing our economy, restoring LAW & ORDER, and returning us to American Greatness, but he’s not done yet. This is your chance – stand with President Trump and MAXIMIZE your impact NOW!”

Below that boldface type was a line which contained a smaller, non-boldface sentence: “Make this a weekly recurring donation until 11/3.”

Another pre-checked box also contained several bold sentences asking potential donors to “join Operation MAGA and help me secure VICTORY in November.” A smaller sentence underneath, unless the prefatory box was unchecked, would allow the campaign to automatically debit an additional $100 from a donor’s account on Oct. 9."


I remember hearing about this during the campaign, but I'm glad to see there's some blow back finally coming about. With any luck there'll be a class action law suit over this shit.

Quote :
"A 63-year-old cancer patient in Kansas City named Stacy Blatt told the Times that he gave $500 to the campaign in September, despite living on less than $1,000 a month, and was completely blindsided by what followed.

“That single contribution — federal records show it was his first ever — quickly multiplied,” the report stated. “Another $500 was withdrawn the next day, then $500 the next week and every week through mid-October, without his knowledge — until Mr. Blatt’s bank account had been depleted and frozen.”

He was forced to seek help from his brother after his utility and rent checks bounced and he learned his account had been drained of $3,000 in under 30 days."


Quote :
"Another 78-year-old from California made what she thought was a one-time donation of $990 that wound up costing her more than $8,000."


I mean, on one level, I find it a bit hard to muster up any empathy for anyone so stupid as to donate to the Trump campaign. But if this is what it takes to (finally???) break the Trump cult of personality spell, so be it.

^^ From the NYT story:

Quote :
"“Predatory!” Mr. Wilson said of WinRed. Like multiple other donors interviewed, though, he held Mr. Trump himself blameless, telling The Times, “I’m 100 percent loyal to Donald Trump.”"
