proust - could Trump be outplaying even reality itself?
7D Chess.Just love the mental image PghBaldy paints:
I literally catapulted out of my recliner when I saw he said this.Lisbon1940 - it was always sarcastic!
They are saying he backtracked. Nonsense. You can repeat a sarcastic comment multiple times.Donglalinger must not watch the news, because Hillary was not the story this week...
For two full days the media screams Obama and Hillary founded ISIS,mission accomplishedChinaGotTheGoodsOnClinton has his expert:
Rudy Giuliani whom I consider to be one of the foremost authorities on terrorism has called them this for quite some time.Louis Foxwell is another who thinks constant reporting that Trump is saying crazy things is good news for Trump:
Has anyone noticed how Trump changed the topic of conversation among the MSM from, “Trump is inciting violence against Hillary” to “Trump says Obama and Hillary are cofounders of ISIS”?joesbucks is another who loves Trump's double-speak and obvious dog-whistles:
Trump is in absolute control of the media, especially the NYT, Washington Post and LA Times.
It feeds his followers with his position while allowing him to walk back or muddy the water with others.Wonder what this guy thinks of candidates who speak in Spanish occasionally?
wbarmy - it wasn't sarcasm, it was hyperbole!
Everybody uses hyperbole during their life and their conversations. Only conservatives and Christians are castigated viciously for anything they use hyperbole on, because then it is obvious they are lying.Dr. Sivana - it wasn't sarcasm, it was a metaphor! Also some kind of old, super lame semantic grudge:
“Sarcasm” isn’t exactly the right word; I think it is closer to a metaphor.
Of course, when I wrote a letter to the editor correcting a misstatement by the Hartford Courant regarding Independence Party candidate Tom Scott in 1994, the paper substituted my correct word, “calumniate”, and replaced it with “slander”. First, there was no need to change my exact word. Second, I was writing about a written piece, so libel would be a better word to use than slander, which applies to spoken lies. Even J. Jonah Jameson knows the difference.grania - another who thinks Trump giving publicity to Freepish things makes Freepish things catch on:
Now, it has everyone figuring out whether it was GWB or Obama/hillary that created the vacuum that allowed ISIS to explode. The way this has evolved points out that the past 16 years (both branches of the globalist uniparty) have led us down the path to destruction.Taking the opposite view, dowcaet blames the media for Trump controlling the news cycle with negative news about Trump:
Trump cannot be wily enough to know that this is what would be the path his comments would lead to, can he?
This is hilarious. It’s just further proof that the media is nothing more than the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party. Look how fast the Slimes took to call this a “controversy” yet Hillary is swimming in an ocean of corruption, but “nothing to see here” for those hard hitting investigative reporters at the Slimes.HKMk23 also thinks Trump's backtracking is a super clever move, because the American People love an unclear President:
I wonder if Trump laughs to himself how easy it is for him to run rings around this idiot media of ours. Now he has the media, the Dems, the hand wringers on our side, and the RINOS all bent out of shape again. Meanwhile, the American voter is seeing all this and some are thinking maybe Trump has a point. Exactly the reason he put that out there.
Don’t miss the real beauty, here:After Palin, NFHale has no idea how Pyrrhic the 'rent free' thing has become, does he?
o - Trump’s claim that he was being sarcastic doesn’t erase what he said before; that still has liberals’ knickers in a twist.
o - The claim to sarcasm will doubtless be second-guessed, and those second guesses will, in turn, be second-guessed — “Wait. Was he really being sarcastic then, or is THIS the actual sarcasm, right here? Which way is up?”
Trump is partying rent-free in these peoples’ heads 24/7/365, causing them massive mental whiplash, and there’s no cabal more deserving of it.
Rent Free, 24-7, inside their empty skulls...PJammers - all Muslims are the same, Obama works with some Muslims. Therefore, Obama works with ISIS because terrorism makes people love him - QED.
It IS entertaining, isn’t it?
ISIS = Taliban = Al Queda = Mujahideen...ect,ect.TexasCruzin is also one of the growing 'Trump's genius is that no one knows what Trump means' crowd:
The simple fact of the matter is the government cultivates these organizations to terrorize in order to sway public opinion.
The British used Native Americans and Hessians in a similar manner prior and during the revolutionary war.
This is what is called “low intensity combat” and “we the people” are losing.
Trump keeps the media guessing. Let them fill in the blanks. He still comes out ahead and Hillary is still ridiculed.GilGil is still working on the Obama-ISIS desk:
Trump doing what he does best control the news cycle. I happen to agree with him. Obama is the founder of ISIS.GilGil is, of course, doubling down and blames Obama for every death in the Middle East:
Obama is so cavalier about the carnage he has created. The carnage of tens of thousands of soldiers. the carnage of hundreds of thousands of civilians. He has gotten hundreds of thousands butchered, tortured and killed. This is very,very bad karma.silverleaf seems disillusioned:
Why why whysilverleaf also thinks it was all true:
Why the 4am tweets
Not sarcasmnitzy - the word found has no meaning outside of a corporation, which means Obama founded everything in the Middle East!
We had the psychopath AlQaeda-turned- ISIS leader Al- Baghdadi since 2005 and obama released him
The rest is history
How, exactly, does one “found” a terrorist organization?grey_whiskers prefers to change the subject to the IRS persecuting conservatives, and also the latest Avengers movie, I guess.
Is there paperwork involved?
Do you need to form a 501c organization with the IRS?
Are there certain rules one needs to follow in order to legitimately claim to be a “founder” of a terrorist organization?
In the absence of these formal rules, would it be reasonable to say that the founder was the primary decision maker in removing the main obstacles to the group’s founding (U.S. troops in Iraq) AND providing the necessary startup capital and equipment (funding and arming the Syrian rebels)?
Just attempt to register with the IRS as a conservative PAC, and you will be put on the Barky Administration's Terror Watch List.alloysteel has the whole power vacuum analysis, and then straps on the tin-foil:
If, on the other hand, you are a bunch of Islamists, just contact the Clinton Globular Initiative, otherwise known by its code-name, "Hydra."
Ask for Medusa, and tell her you'd like to make a considerable donation (suggested minimum: $250,000 in small unmarked bills).
I charge that the Current Regime is and has for some time now, been clandestinely supporting the efforts of ISIS, including importing their fifth column of agents both into this country and Europe, by letting in large numbers of “refugees” from Syria, which contained an undetermined number of active members of the ISIS fighting force.Also preferring to change the subject, maine-iac7 - "Benghazi!"
None dare call it treason.
in Obama’s own words - he ‘trained ISIS’
gave them - made it possible - for ISIS to get 2,300 of our Humvees - all planned - AND the pickup trucks AND ‘accidentally” dropping massive amount of munitions in the wrong place - the hands of ISIS .
After double crossed some of the ‘rebels’ tghey attacked Benghazi - When she found out, did she make the decsion to demand all sides ‘STAND DOWN’ - deciding if those people -over 80 of them - all died- they couldn’t tell about the ‘movement of weapons’ - Hillary’s gun running...
Some brave men finally realized no help was likely so they overrode the stand-down order - and they saved all lives but 4 - with the HELP of former troops of Qaddafi, who came and got the people out -
