Lion Fraud

She's prepping for her congressional run.

OLD GRINGO

Ain't ya ever noticed that the politicians what talks the most actually does the least?

blah

Whatever you do, don't mention Hill- I had to stop myself.

Who Cares

Message to Veronica - no one gives a damn about what you think in regards to national politics. No. One. Go find something else to pick on.

Rash on lips

Give it up Verobroom, Hillary is no longer available for rectum kissing. Btw she blew the election which is why Monica did it better

The Raging Chihuahua

Q: Why do we have someone who is clearly too mentally unstable be allowed to be a Judge? A: Because in this town, crazy is the new "sanity." (sigh)

JerryK

So, you're a nationalist if you do or believe what? That America should be secure in its borders? That people should be accountable to our laws? Or, OMG, if you are white and believe these things!

Veronica: give it up. You are in El Paso. You are a local politician. You have no say on the national stage. You need to stick to business. The county is a mess and you, like Trump, spend too much time on Twitter. Concentrate on mending local fences and less time trying to be relevant.

Escobar's tweets indicate that she has no respect for the truth and shows how she thinks. False tweets are the worst. Here is Bannon's response to his critics, in is own words from an interview in the Wall St Journal.

Anti-Semitic? “Breitbart is the most pro-Israel site in the United States of America. I have Breitbart Jerusalem, which I have Aaron Klein run with about 10 reporters there. We’ve been leaders in stopping this BDS movement”—meaning boycott, divestment and sanctions—“in the United States; we’re a leader in the reporting of young Jewish students being harassed on American campuses; we’ve been a leader on reporting on the terrible plight of the Jews in Europe.” He adds that given his many Jewish partners and writers, “guys like Joel Pollak, these claims of anti-Semitism just aren’t serious. It’s a joke.”

He blames the attacks on a lazy media, noting for instance that the “renegade Jew” line wasn’t Breitbart’s. Conservative activist David Horowitz (also Jewish) has taken responsibility for writing the headline himself, in a piece about Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol.

The Lenin anecdote came from an article in the Daily Beast by a writer who claimed to have spoken with Mr. Bannon in 2013: “So a guy I’ve never heard of in my life claims he met me at a party, and then claims I said something about Lenin, and this is taken as gospel truth, with nobody checking it.”

What about the charge of white supremacism? “I’m an economic nationalist. I am an America first guy. And I have admired nationalist movements throughout the world, have said repeatedly strong nations make great neighbors. I’ve also said repeatedly that the ethno-nationalist movement, prominent in Europe, will change over time. I’ve never been a supporter of ethno-nationalism.”
