Eric Greitens, the former governor of Missouri, is under fire this week for his ad featuring himself, a former Navy Seal, storming a house looking for “RINOs” (or Republicans In Name Only). The ad, in my view, was inflammatory and irresponsible. At a time of rising politically-motivated violence, this type of ad, even if meant in jest, is reckless. However, Greitens has now been blocked on the ad by Facebook and tagged by Twitter, a continuation of robust censorship and “content modification” policies at these companies. This is news and there is a worthy discussion on the use of such imagery. However, we have seen how such censorship leads to ridiculous outcomes like YouTube censoring the Jan. 6th Committee because it had video clips of former President Donald Trump. Greitens has lashed out at the companies.
The ad shows Greitens declaring “Today, we’re going RINO hunting. The RINO feeds on corruption, and is marked by the stripes of cowardice. Join the MAGA crew, get a RINO hunting permit. There’s no bagging limit, no tagging limit, and it doesn’t expire til’ we save our country.”
Facebook has blacklisted the ad under its “policies prohibiting violence and incitement.”
On Twitter, people cannot share the tweet or reply to it, even in criticism. Twitter added a warning for abusive imagery.
Whether you find the ad humorous or horrific, it is news on various levels. There is the underlying political division in the Republican Party. There is also the use of violent imagery at a time when some Republicans are facing threats over their support for gun controls or the Jan. 6th Select Committee. These social media sites should be neutral forums for such debates.
In this controversy, Twitter at least still allowed access to the video. The question is the practical purpose of the warning beyond expressing corporate contempt over “abusive” content. There was a time when these companies did not believe that they were active participants in exchanges on their sites.
I have described myself as an Internet Originalist:
The alternative is “internet originalism” — no censorship. If social media companies returned to their original roles, there would be no slippery slope of political bias or opportunism; they would assume the same status as telephone companies. We do not need companies to protect us from harmful or “misleading” thoughts. The solution to bad speech is more speech, not approved speech.
If Pelosi demanded that Verizon or Sprint interrupt calls to stop people saying false or misleading things, the public would be outraged. Twitter serves the same communicative function between consenting parties; it simply allows thousands of people to participate in such digital exchanges. Those people do not sign up to exchange thoughts only to have Dorsey or some other internet overlord monitor their conversations and “protect” them from errant or harmful thoughts.
Social media companies seem to have written off conservatives and others with dissenting views. They have also readily embraced censorship as a noble task. Indeed, after the old Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was criticized for his massive censorship efforts, Twitter replaced him with CEO Parag Agrawal who has expressed chilling anti-free speech sentiments. In an interview with Technology Review editor-in-chief Gideon Lichfield, he was asked how Twitter would balance its efforts to combat misinformation with wanting to “protect free speech as a core value” and to respect the First Amendment. Agrawal responded:
“Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment, but our role is to serve a healthy public conversation and our moves are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation. The kinds of things that we do about this is, focus less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed.
One of the changes today that we see is speech is easy on the internet. Most people can speak. Where our role is particularly emphasized is who can be heard. The scarce commodity today is attention. There’s a lot of content out there. A lot of tweets out there, not all of it gets attention, some subset of it gets attention.”
He added that Twitter would be “moving towards how we recommend content and … how we direct people’s attention is leading to a healthy public conversation that is most participatory.”

Now Trump’s criticizing Kevin McCarthy for not putting additional Republicans on the Committee. He told conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root on Sunday that “In a way, the Republicans should be ashamed of themselves. … Unfortunately, a bad decision was made. This committee, it was a bad decision not to have representation on this committee. That was a very, very foolish decision.”
LOL. Trumpists like iowan regularly deny that McCarthy played a role in there not being other Republicans on the Committee. Will they finally admit that McCarthy made that choice, or will they instead choose to say that Trump is wrong?
Trump eventually turns on everyone, it’s only ever a matter of time. Eastman is now in his crosshairs too …
“With the Justice Department and Jan. 6 committee taking a close look at Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, he and his cronies could certainly use a fall guy, and it looks like they’ve found their patsy: right-wing lawyer John Eastman. Eastman worked for Trump as the attorney devised legal strategies to overturn the election to keep the outgoing president in power. But, in recent weeks, Trump has confided to those close to him that he sees no reason to publicly defend Eastman, two people familiar with the matter tell Rolling Stone. The ex-president is also deeply annoyed with Eastman and all the negative “attention” and media coverage that the lawyer’s work has brought Trump and his inner sanctum, including during the ongoing Jan. 6 hearings on Capitol Hill.
“Furthermore, to those who’ve spoken Trump about Eastman in recent months, the ex-president has repeated an excuse he often uses when backed into a corner, as investigators confront him with an associates’ misdeeds: He has privately insisted he “hardly” or “barely” knows Eastman, despite the fact that he counseled Trump on taking a string of extra-legal measures in a bid to stay in power and wrote the so-called “coup memo,” which laid out the facsimile of a legal argument for reversing Trump’s election defeat. …”
May Eastman return the favor.
Trump says what he means FORCEFULLY, and he does not back down.
I respect that – even when I do not agree.
You and the left keep trying to make seeking to constitutionally and legal reverse the certified results of the 2020 election into a crime.
It is NOT – even if there was no fraud at all, even if the election WAS perfect – seeking to overturn it by every constitutional means possible can not be a CRIME.
Only in this warped world of the left where what is a crime depends ont he politics of the act – not the act itself, do we get nonsense like this.
But worse still – it is self evident to much of the country that no matter who won the election – there were LOTS of problems – REAL FRAUD that was not looked at.
We are now being warned that in 2022 we AGAIN have democrats trying to use state and local govenrment to aide in Democrat GOTV efforts.
Democrats are free to do whatever they can on their own to get voters to vote.
They are NOT free to incorporate government into those efforts. Government at best administers elections. It MAY NOT put its thumb on the scales.
Worse still we may not have government participate in elections ONLY in democratic precincts.
It’s getting so you can depend on Turley to spout the same ignoramus lies that Fox is known for and to try to shift the narrative from the truth to pro-Trump lies as a set-off to the vicious abuses that were disclosed yesterday–i.e.: “There is also the use of violent imagery at a time when some Republicans are facing threats over their support for gun controls or the Jan. 6th Select Committee” So, according to Turley, pro-gun Republicans are victims. Turley also says there should also be no removal of calls to kill RINOS (Republicans in name only, according to losers who use this term) by Twitter, so allow for a neutral forum for political discourse. Just how far up your rectum is your head shoved, Turley? First of all, Trump is morally, eithically and intellectually unfit to be president. Secondly, Republicans who don’t support this pig shouldn’t be subject to threats and intimidation, including the threat of violence. Third, Twitter not only has the right, according to its “terms of service” to deny a platform to someone who advocates violence against someone who disagrees politically, it h as a moral obligation to do so. The fact that Turley is more offended by Twitter denying this creep a forum than he is for advocating violence, tells you the extent to which his opinion can be purchased.
For you Trumpers out there who didn’t watch the J6 hearing yesterday because Fox told you not to, election officials from several states testified how Trump doxxed them by publishing their home and office telephone numbers and e-mails when they honored their oath to the Constitution and refused to “find” nonexistent votes. An election worker from Georgia was called a “hustler” by Trump, and so she, along with ther aged mother, received all sorts of threats of violence and name-calling. At one point, a Trump fan told her: “just be glad it’s 2020 and not 1920”, implying that she and her mother would be lynched.
“D’Souza Targets Fox News, Says Network Banning Mention of ‘2000 Mules’”
It’s remarkable that those here who swear by “2000 Mules” will not denounce Fox for banning it, will not chastise Barr for mocking it, will not criticize Turley for ignoring it, but I am vilified for refusing to see it!
Fox News is in a pickle because of the lying it did with the smartmatic and dominion voting machine claims. Talking about the 2000 mules is just asking for more litigation after multiple Trump administration officials said it was complete bunk.
It’s just another baseless conspiracy theory in need of a serious dose of gullible idiots.
Of course, but that fact does not excuse Turley for not criticizing his network for banning anyone claiming that the election was stolen. Turley should say that Fox is censoring all election conspiracy talk because our a$$ is being sued for spreading these election lies in the past. Turley has mentioned these billion dollar lawsuits- once- that’s it! If Fox settles out of court for untold millions, I doubt Turley will mention it.
I’m glad that lying sometimes in the public square is not free. We need more defamation lawsuits to hold liars accountable. If one’s conscience won’t inhibit lying, emptying their bank account will.
Unfortunately, the President is mostly protected from defamation suits. Trump’s lies while President about election workers Shaye Moss and Ruby Freeman were despicable and put their lives in danger. They’ve sued Giuliani, OANN, and the Gateway Pundit for defamation, and OANN settled last month.
If you didn’t watch yesterday’s hearing, I encourage you to watch.
I watched it. Let’s see if Turley will report his reaction to the damning testimony. He did tweet some remarks that won’t go over well with Trumpists. They were hoping he would tweet “witch-hunt!” I keep telling them he is a NeverTrumper, but they refuse to believe me.
Jeff is afraid Turley might call the hearings a witch-hunt. They are, but that is not Turley’s job, nor is it how Turley speaks. He is a lawyer, so he uses the law as his framework. You ought to do the same, but you do not have that ability.
No, they aren’t.
It’s too bad that it’s so hard to sue a President for defamation. Moss and Freeman were certainly defamed and endangered by Trump’s lies about them. That would be a relevant legal issue for Turley to discuss, but I doubt he will.
I ask one more time this question to Trumpers: should Congress just ignore the Big Lie, the insurrection, the fake electors, the doxxing of election officials who refused to lie because Trump demanded that they do so? You say the hearings are a “witch hunt”. Explain to me how or why you say this other than the pig you worship calls them such. I want to know what makes these matters a “witch hunt”.
Other than the Civil War, Americans have never risen up against their own government. The ones who did so did it because Trump lied to them about the election being “stolen”, and that they should attack the Capitol and stop the Biden certification because doing so proves they are patriots fighting for their country. Yesterday’s hearing revealed that Giuliani actually admitted to one election official that they had lots of theories, but no evidence. Raffensberger testified that he was able to shoot down every single theory Giuliani relied on: dead voters, underage voters, incarcerated felons voting, illegals voting, Trump ballots being shredded. Every one of these claims was thoroughly investigated after Trump threatened Raffensberger with criminal charges for allowing these nonexistent illegal things to happen, and every last one of these “theories” was shot down. But, Trump persisted, and continues to persist in claiming these things are true. He even got sympathezers to gin up a slate of fake “electors” to cast Electoral College votes for him. In Michigan, the fake Trump electors even hid out in the State House the night before the Electoral College voters were to meet, in order to beat thim to the punch with their fake ballots the first thing in the morning. All based on nothing: Trump lost. He knows he lost because everyone told him so. He won’t stop lying about it, and he continues to divide Americans in 2 camps: those who believe his lies despite all proof to the contrary, and the rest of us.
So, you tell me, should Trump just get a free pass for doing these things? If so, what’s to stop the next wannabe dictator from donig the same thing? If this isn’t a Constitutional crisis, then what qualifies?
“No, they aren’t.”
Said by a childish mind who knows very little.
J6 is a witch-hunt as long as the idea is to get Trump, and everyone on the panel is after Trump. If one wants a real investigation, do it. Have people that are not in agreement and can speak for the other side. Interrogate Nancy Pelosi along with all her correspondences as she is integrally involved with J6. Release all the videos and everything done by the Capitol and Washington police. Do a real investigation and let the pieces fall where they may.
That is what you are afraid of in addition to fearing the rule of law.
And a judge in Delaware has let Dominion’s defamation lawsuit move forward against the Fox Corporation along with Fox News. https://courts.delaware.gov/Opinions/Download.aspx?id=334260
“The relevant allegations in the complaint are: (1) Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch caused Fox News to broadcast false claims about Dominion even though they did not personally believe former President Trump’s election fraud narrative; (2) on November 6, 2020, a newspaper reported that Rupert Murdoch spoke with former President Trump and informed him that he had lost the election; (3) the day after the election, Rupert Murdoch allegedly called a Republican leader “urging him to ask other senior Republicans to refuse to endorse Mr. Trump’s conspiracy theories and baseless claims of fraud;” and (4) other newspapers under Rupert Murdoch’s control—including the Wall Street Journal and New York Post—condemned President Trump’s claims and urged him to concede defeat. These allegations support a reasonable inference that Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch either knew Dominion had not manipulated the election or at least recklessly disregarded the truth when they allegedly caused Fox News to propagate its claims about Dominion. Thus, Dominion has successfully brought home actual malice to the individuals at Fox Corporation who it claims to be responsible for the broadcasts.”
Looks like Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch will be deposed before too long.
Thanks for the heads-up! I will read it with pleasure. Will Turley mention this setback?
Not a chance….
Not yet, perhaps after Turley is deposed. He is after all an employee of Fox News.
Seriously. I would think that he is very likely to be deposed because he always questioned the legitimacy of these conspiracy theories. He never bought into these reckless statements. He only argued that Trump should make his case in court if he could. And he acknowledged that it was an uphill battle.
Turley should be asked why he did not repeat these election lies, whom did he tell that he did not believe them, what was said to him by the Fox producers.
I’ve said for months that Turley is not willing to concede that Trump and his lieutenants lied in bad faith. To this day, he believes that they acted in good faith but failed to prove their suspicions. Of course, that’s total BS as Barr stated. Had Turley seconded Barr’s statement? Not at all! He only defends Barr’s *integrity* but not a mention of what he said under oath.
Jeff, Turley won’t concede that Trump lied because he’s waiting for cover. He doesn’t want to be on the receiving end of trumpists ire and lose his precious blog “hits”.
I believe Turley is in the same position many trumpists are in. They know they are being lied to, but they are too proud to admit they were taken for a ride by Trump and crew,and admitting they’ve been had for the gullible suckers they are is far worse than just doubling down on the shred of dignity in avoiding the obvious.
Turley tweeted yesterday:
“Trump’s posting attacking Arizona Speaker Rusty Bowers today led to it being read into the record by Schiff and Bowers expressly stating under oath that the former President was lying about their conversation.”
This is the first time I can recall that Turley used the word “lying” in the same sentence with “Trump.” Turley has not been shy stating that Trump has made many false statements but rarely, if ever, deliberately.
Turley has NEVER defended Trump’s moral character. I can’t think of one compliment he has EVER paid him. His sole task has been to defend him against accusations of crimes and being impeached. That defense has ingratiated him to Trumpists, but it is clear in the video I just posted from Fox News that Turley does not believe he is fit to be a president. Turley said that adding opposing voices to the Jan. 6 committee would not have undermined the “powerful testimony” against Trump.
Trumpists, however, will have none of this- to them all these Republicans are RINO’s and suffering TDS. Trumpists absolutely dismiss the hearings as a “witch-hunt.” Turley does not, but he has yet to be convinced that Trump is guilty of a crime. Turley CAN be convinced; a Trumpist NEVER will for the reasons you explain.
Trump — who according to Ivanka’s sworn testimony called Pence a “p*ssy” for refusing to do Trump’s unconstitutional bidding — is too much of a p*ssy himself to testify under oath about it.
He’s such a liar that it would be hard for him to avoid committing perjury.
“Turley has NEVER defended Trump’s moral character.”
Has Turley ever defended Jeff Silberman’s moral character? Never, and he wouldn’t. Trump has more moral character in his pinky finger than you in your entire body. Listen to your daily dialogue filled with nothing
One other point that the Judge’s Order brought out: the REASON Fox attacked Dominion, despite knowing that it did nothing wrong and that the allegations were false, was because it LOST viewers, and therefore, advertising revenue, to OAN, NewsMax and other alt-right outlets who went along with the Big Lie, and it was trying to woo them back for financial reasons. That fact alone will kill them in Court.
Jeff, you clearly don’t understand capital markets. People respond with their feet. If Fox doesn’t show the truth, 2000 Mules, their viewers will seek other sources to see it, and they have. Eventually, subsegments of the population will leave Fox. Many have, but those leaving are being replaced by those that can no longer stand the MSM. For example look at the financials of the NYT.
You also don’t understand respect and dignity. I mentioned these things earlier under an anonymous name. You wish to put words in Turley’s mouth. Why should Turley mimic what your messed-up brain wants said, but cannot say, on its own? You are likely a failure in real life. That might be why you wish to associate your feelings with Turley’s. Your house in Marin County isn’t a big enough ego booster. Is it?
“ If Fox doesn’t show the truth, 2000 Mules, their viewers will seek other sources to see it, and they have.”
It’s not the truth. Even former AG BARR calls it BS.
Yesterday Arizona’s former speaker of the house, a Republican, testified that Rudy Giuliani himself flat out said he didn’t have any proof of voter fraud.
2000 Mules is being promoted by a convicted criminal and a liar. There’s seriously very little credibility and only the mentally weak and gullible are buying into the “documentary”.
Fox News is already in big trouble for lying about dominion machines and smartmatic. They certainly learned their lesson on pushing unproven allegations.
“It’s not the truth. Even former AG BARR calls it BS.”
Barr was also embarrassed, so he changed the data in his testimony. Had there been another side to question him, Barr may not have testified or testified differently.
“Yesterday Arizona’s former speaker of the house, a Republican, testified that Rudy Giuliani himself flat out said he didn’t have any proof of voter fraud.
It seems Giuliani went down the wrong road. That is on Giuliani, but to prove fraud can take years. That has little to do with the election being fraudulent. Fraud occurred, just not the fraud claimed by Giuliani.
“2000 Mules is being promoted by a convicted criminal and a liar. There’s seriously very little credibility and only the mentally weak and gullible are buying into the “documentary”
D’Souza’s conviction of a minor infraction is common to Democrats and Republicans. You are too stupid to recognize that he was convicted because he told the truth. Had he been a liar, he could have made the donations in another fashion which would have been legal. He was naive, and was put in jail for political reasons by wannabe despots.
“Fox News is already in big trouble for lying about dominion machines and smartmatic. They certainly learned their lesson on pushing unproven allegations.”
They are in trouble for believing something that may have been true. In any event you don’t even recognize the parties to the suit and who or what is actually involved in the legal action. That is forgivable because it requires knowledge and a brain with intellectual capacity.
You are too stupid to see Trump for the lying, narcississtic pig he always has been and always will be. You are too stupid to appreciate the extent to which Trump has constituted the worst threat to democracy we’ve had since the founding of America–someone who just can’t accept the fact that most Americans never wanted him in the first place and voted him out when they got the chance. Raffensberger testified that something like 28,000 Republican voters in Georgia voted for down-ballot Republican candidates, but didn’t vote for anyone for President in 2020. Trump claims this is proof of fraud, but what it really proves that Georgia Republicans also found Trump repulsive and wanted him gone. However, they also didn’t support Biden, so they didn’t vote for either candidate. What have you Trumpers ever had as actual proof that your hero was cheated out of his “landslide victory”? Nothing. Virtually every “theory” Giuliani came up with has been debunked, as has 2000 mules. You have to question the intellectual capacity of people who stubbornly continue to believe a chronic liar over dozens of honest state election officials who say that 2020 was a free and fair election that Biden won, and who have investigated claims of fraud and declared them to be without merit.
“You are too stupid to see Trump for the lying, narcississtic pig he always has been and always will be. “
Natacha, I note response after response filled with error or nothing. That is what being stupid is all about.
Do you want to talk Trump? Let’s do so and in the meantime let’s look at the data. You won’t because you know you can’t and because you know you lack the intelligence to do so.
I will accept your acceptance of those facts by a non-answer or an answer absent fact or truth.
Are you a nincompoop? Plenty has been said of Barr’s testimony and about Fox. What is wrong with you that you don’t remember?

Democrats voting for a Cheney. America is indeed ending!!!
Liz Cheney Is Paying the Price in Her Home State for Crossing Trump
Once considered Republican royalty, she now relies on Democrats switching sides to save her political career
remember the days when a Representative represented their constituents? Good times
Imagine telling democrats in 2004 that they’d be supporting a Cheney in a federal election, probably donating from other states just to get that Cheney elected. Mind-blowing.
Imagine telling Republicans in 2004 that they’d be supporting a thrice married philanderer who has been credibly accused of rape and sexual harassment, who cheated on his 3rd wife with a porn star, who’s not religious, whose supporters threatened both Republicans and Democrats in Congress in an effort to prevent the peaceful transfer of power, … Mind-blowing.
I don’t support Cheney. I do appreciate that she’s willing to be honest about Jan. 6, unlike most Republicans in Congress. She’s right that history will judge them poorly.
All the accusations you mentioned are false
Right with history? Her political career is history!

Here is a well-known Trumpist, Ted Nugent, who Turley called a “true lunatic”:
“Ted Nugent Unleashes Rabid Anti-Semitic Rant Over Gun Control”
“Know these punks. They hate freedom, they hate good over evil, they would deny us the basic human right to self defense & to KEEP & BEAR ARMS while many of them have tax paid hired ARMED security! Know them well. Tell every you know how evil they are. Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!”
“Just when you hope that mankind couldn’t possibly get any dumber or more dishonest, superFreaks rise to the occasion. What sort of racist prejudiced (piece of s**t) could possibly not know that Jews for guncontrol are nazis in disguise? “NEVER AGAIN!” Anyone? Anyone?? (Are you f**king kidding me?)”
One can’t help but wonder whether Darren would remove this “rabid anti-Semitic rant” from this blog as violating Turley’s censorship standard of “abusive.” I would hope so. Sadly, only 1 or 2 of the Trumpists here would agree that it crosses the line.
If someone buys me a rifle and an airplane ticket to Moscow, I will bring an end to this war myself, as no one else is stepping up to the plate.

American Construction Worker With No Military Training Killed While Fighting for Ukraine
By Cassandra Fairbanks
Published June 21, 2022 at 11:00am
The State Department has confirmed that a second American has been killed while fighting for Ukraine.
American citizens have been allowed to go volunteer to join the Ukrainian military to fight Russia, even those without any military training or background.
The 52-year-old Floridian construction worker, Stephen Zabielski, died “while fighting the war in Village of Dorozhniank, Ukraine,” according to his obituary.
“Eric Greitens, the former governor of Missouri, is under fire this week for his ad featuring himself, a former Navy Seal, storming a house looking for “RINOs” (or Republicans In Name Only). The ad, in my view, was inflammatory and irresponsible. At a time of rising politically-motivated violence, this type of ad, even if meant in jest, is reckless.”
Reckless? So was Common Sense, The Declaration of Independence, Gen Mcaulife’s reply to the German Commander at Bastogne, John Paul Jones’ reply to the Serapis aboard the Bonhomme Richard, Farragut’s command order at Mobile Bay, Custer’s charging order at East Cavalry Field at Gettysburg and scads of other Americans when faced with seemingly overwhelming adversity. This is nothing new about this. It’s America! It’s part of our national ethos. Get over it. Nobody’s changing to suit a few Technocrats and their Snowflake horde of Crybullies.
Why did Turley ban you as an erstwhile contributor?
Funny, I don’t feel banned. You tell em.
I fully agree. The determiniation of the merits of Grietens adds are the domain of VOTERS.
I personally have ZERO problems with Grietens “Targeting RINO’s” – just as I have no problem with Never-Trumpers.
It is MY choice whether an advertisement appeals to me.
Now that Professor Turley has made it abundantly clear that he is a free speech absolutist, he should move on to showing what it would look like on this blog if he were to censor those that support censorship of any kind.
If Turley were actually “a free speech absolutist,” he wouldn’t delete comments here.
I can’t help myself from commenting here. I wish Turley would ban me.
Under the law, one can’t consent to be murdered. I wonder if it’s considered censorship if one asks for it?
People consent to be murdered all the time. Oh its slow murder and usually manifests as voting woke.
NeverTrumpers are committing suicide?
Greitens is a prime candidate for the confiscation of his guns. It’s a fact that those who have a history of domestic violence are mentally unstable. He’s the perfect example of someone who doesn’t need guns.
I think that’s the Gov that was framed up by the Commie Dims/Rinos to get him out office.
I think he was cleared, but if he was you won’t hear it on the old media govt propaganda news sources.
Greitain’s Ad didn’t bother me in the least, just look at all the Commie Dims/Rinos he exposed as such to the general public.
And if a person doesn’t understand sarcasm or freak out at the sight of something like a Black Gun/s or a Non Sodomite Males then that’s their own mental problem.
Aside from the 1st/2nd Amds,
Shouldn’t we be more concerned about having a known Senile old Imposture Pedophile President by run by authoritarians in the back ground/congress?
And shouldn’t we be looking at where/what the real crimes are happening like US funding Illegal Bio-Weapons Labs in NAZI Ukraine & the “Syringes” (equal Gun), that deliver the Bio-Weapon CV 19 “Shots” into the arms of it’s intended Victims?
Oh Look, just out this week, 530,000 mu*rdered in England by Fau*ic’s/Ga*tes’ Big Pha*rma’s Bio Weapons Syringes. (Which were approved by Commie Dims/Rino Congressmen/Senators

BTW: Those that Di*ed from the Syringe Guns were not offend by Greitens Rino Hunting Ad. LOL;)
OKY, how do we know what is true about Greitens? I haven’t followed him, but I haven’t seen proof just like I haven’t seen the proof of so many attempts to libel Republicans that the left is fearful of. It would be bad if his domestic history is soiled, but the question existing is, what can he do as a leader? If we only sought the purest of the pure this country and its benefits would be gone. We would live under the rule of a Stalin, Mao or Putin.
Most of what I remember was news coming before he resigned. Same MO, no pun, Sen Mitch McConnell & American hating geezer trash joined in railroading. Same ole crap. That’s what it looked to me & it worked for them again as a lot of voters are to stupid, as George is always point out.
But Greitens seems to have cleared that up enough to run again.
If he survives the MO primary stuff the McConnell/McCarthy Fascist Creeps will join up helping the Dim Commies attempting to block him from office.
Same game they used on the NC wheelchair rep guy that pointed out DC’s Pedo Craps & Judge Roy Moore Al & many others. Moore was a bit out there, but I knew it’d be fun if he got in.
BTW: Where’s Jeffrey Epstein’s list of Clients? Maybe JT can ask Barr for help finding it?
Better to believe in Jesus then these people.
We would live under the rule of a Stalin, Mao or Putin.
We as a nation are damn close….. Months!
Cattle/Pigs/Chickens dying. Grain Crops failing, EPA announcing the water is poisoned, Govt / Biden/Commie/Fascist tells us they have a new Virus coming, & they are poisoning the atmosphere, US Central Banking announcing this week that the 1st of 2023 they’re trying to move to a new Digital Air Currency & Canada announces this week their 1st Bugs for Human Food went into operation today!!!!
Other then that, if I didn’t miss anything, it’s pretty nice.
BTW: Did you see where they misplaced my peanut butter? LOL;)
