CHINA/RUSSIA/VLADIMIR PUTIN: “Former president Donald Trump mused Saturday [March 5, 2022] to the GOP’s top donors that the United States should label its F-22 planes with the Chinese flag and ‘bomb the s–t out of Russia.’ […]

‘And then we say, China did it, we didn’t do it, China did it, and then they start fighting with each other and we sit back and watch,’ he said…

After coming under fierce criticism for praising Putin as ‘savvy’ and ‘brilliant’ for the Russian leader’s moves in Ukraine last month, he struck a tougher tone Saturday — claiming Putin never would have invaded the country if Trump was president of the United States.”

2020 ELECTION/ATTORNEY GENERAL/VOTER FRAUD/WILLIAM BARR: “Former Attorney General Bill Barr wouldn’t know voter fraud if it was staring him in the face—and it was. The fact is, he was weak, ineffective, and totally scared of being impeached, which the Democrats were constantly threatening to do. They ‘broke’ him. He should have acted much faster on the Mueller Report, instead of allowing the fake Russia, Russia, Russia, Hoax to linger for so long, but it was the Election Fraud and Irregularities that he refused to act on because he wanted to save his own hide—and he did. He never got impeached, contempt charges never went forward, and the Democrats were very happy with him—but I wasn’t. The Unselect Committee of Political Hacks continues to spin its wheels in trying to fabricate a narrative that doesn’t exist. The only thing they refuse to look into is the massive Election Fraud that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election.”

ATTORNEY GENERAL/WILLIAM BARR: “Former Attorney General William Barr said in an interview aired on Friday that he believes former President Trump is responsible for the Capitol riot ‘in the broad sense of that word.’ […]

‘I do think he was responsible in the broad sense of that word, and that it appears that part of the plan was to send this group up to the Hill. I think the whole idea was to intimidate Congress, and I think that that was wrong,’ Barr responded.

Holt noted during the interview that Trump provided a three-page response to the network over Barr’s remarks, in which he called his former attorney general a ‘coward,’ ‘a big disappointment’ and ‘lazy.’ He also said Barr’s forthcoming memoir, ‘One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General,’ was ‘fake.’

2020 ELECTION/ARIZONA/DEMS/GEORGIA/WISCONSIN: “The actual conspiracy to defraud the United States was the Democrats rigging the Election, and the Fake News Media and the Unselect Committee covering it up. Few things could be more fraudulent, or met with more irregularities, than the Presidential Election of 2020. They refuse to cover the facts, such as just this week the special counsel in Wisconsin called for the decertification of the 2020 Election because of massive illegality, including election bribery, and the preying on the elderly for votes, which resulted in fraud of ’95-100 percent turnout,’ an impossibility, in at least 91 nursing homes. This is true with many other states, especially swing states. In Arizona, 204,430 mail-in ballots had mismatched signatures that were never sent to review, and 740,000 mail-in ballots had broken chain of custody, all far more necessary than the votes needed, 10,457, for ‘President Trump to win.’ In Georgia, over 240 ballot harvesters have been identified in an illegal operation spanning multiple swing states, all caught on video.”

FAKE NEWS/UKRAINE/VLADIMIR PUTIN: “The RINOs, Warmongers, and Fake News continue to blatantly lie and misrepresent my remarks on Putin because they know this terrible war being waged against Ukraine would have never happened under my watch. They did absolutely nothing as Putin declared much of Ukraine an ‘independent territory.’ There should be no war waging now in Ukraine, and it is terrible for humanity that Biden, NATO, and the West have failed so terribly in allowing it to start. Instead of showing strength and toughness, they declared the Global Warming Hoax as the #1 threat to global security, killed American Energy Independence, and then made Europe, the U.S., and the rest of the World dependent on Russian oil. They laid down the welcome mat and gave Russia the opening, now Putin may be getting everything he wanted, with Ukraine and the rest of the World suffering the consequences. It’s terrible, but this is what you get with Biden, the Democrats, and RINO warmongers!”

If the [2020] Election wasn’t Rigged, America would right now continue to have record-low gas prices, as it was under my Administration, and we would be supplying the world with oil and gas. Also, Russia would not have attacked Ukraine. Instead, we have a horribly tragic and unnecessary war, record-high energy prices, Inflation, no Border, crime, and chaos. Make America STRONG Again!”

RUSSIA/UKRAINE/VLADIMIR PUTIN: “As Russia prepared to strike Ukraine and the United States rushed to defend neighboring allies in Europe, former President Donald J. Trump had nothing but admiration for President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia.

He is ‘pretty smart,’ Mr. Trump said on Wednesday [February 23, 2022] at a Florida fund-raiser, assessing the impending invasion like a real estate deal. ‘He’s taken over a country for $2 worth of sanctions,’ he said, ‘taking over a country — really a vast, vast location, a great piece of land with a lot of people — and just walking right in.’ […]

Cold War-era Republicans, historians said, would have repudiated comments like Mr. Trump’s as un-American.”

‘We have to also make sure that within our own country we are calling out those people who are giving aid and comfort to Vladimir Putin, who are talking about what a genius he is, what a smart move it is, who are unfortunately being broadcast by Russian media, not only inside Russia, but in Europe to demonstrate the division within our own country,’ Clinton told host Mika Brzezinski, referencing Trump earlier this week calling Putin a ‘genius’ and ‘very savvy’ for how he was handling Ukraine.”

INVESTIGATIONS/NEW YORK/TRUMP BUSINESS: “A long-running investigation into Trump’s business practices from the Manhattan district attorney’s office appears to have been derailed, as the two lead prosecutors, Carey Dunne and Mark Pomerantz, resigned Wednesday [February 23, 2022]. A New York Times report suggests they did so because the new district attorney, Alvin Bragg, told them ‘he had doubts about moving forward with a case’ against Trump.

The big question is why. Did Bragg legitimately conclude that the case against Trump, which he inherited from former district attorney Cyrus Vance, was weak?

Or did he get cold feet about taking on the powerful former president? […]

The truth could also lie in the middle — the case might not be definitively weak or strong but rather somewhere in between. So this could just be a genuine difference of opinion about the case, with no nefarious behavior necessary.”

OIL/RUSSIA/UKRAINE/VLADIMIR PUTIN: “If properly handled, there was absolutely no reason that the situation currently happening in Ukraine should have happened at all. I know Vladimir Putin very well, and he would have never done during the Trump Administration what he is doing now, no way! Russia has become very very rich during the Biden Administration, with oil prices doubling and soon to be tripling and quadrupling. The weak sanctions are insignificant relative to taking over a country and a massive piece of strategically located land. Now it has begun, oil prices are going higher and higher, and Putin is not only getting what he always wanted, but getting, because of the oil and gas surge, richer and richer. The U.S. was energy independent under the Trump Administration, an independence that we had never obtained before, and oil prices would have remained low. Now, what a mess our Country is in!”

[E]arly glimpses at Truth Social suggest its offerings are almost identical to what Twitter and other sites have offered for years — except tweets are called ‘truths,’ and retweets ‘retruths.’ […]

Trump’s company, the Trump Media & Technology Group, also prohibits anyone from attempting to ‘disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm, in our opinion, us and/or the Site.’ […]

I said, ‘How smart is that?’ And he’s gonna go in and be a peacekeeper. That’s strongest peace force … We could use that on our southern border.

Here’s a guy that says, you know, ‘I’m gonna declare a big portion of Ukraine independent’ — he used the word ‘independent’ — ‘and we’re gonna go out and we’re gonna go in and we’re gonna help keep peace.’ You gotta say that’s pretty savvy.

Haberman tweeted, ‘Here’s some reporting from the book’s later years — White House residence staff periodically found papers had clogged a toilet, leaving staff believing Trump had flushed material he’d ripped into pieces.'”

Well, the Vice President’s position is not an automatic conveyor if obvious signs of voter fraud or irregularities exist. That’s why the Democrats and RINOs are working feverishly together to change the very law that Mike Pence and his unwitting advisors used on January 6 to say he had no choice. The reason they want it changed is because they now say they don’t want the Vice President to have the right to ensure an honest vote. In other words, I was right and everyone knows it. If there is fraud or large scale irregularities, it would have been appropriate to send those votes back to the legislatures to figure it out. The Dems and RINOs want to take that right away. A great opportunity lost, but not forever, in the meantime our Country is going to hell!”

The panel received those records from the National Archives less than two days after the Supreme Court refused a request from former President Donald Trump to block their release.

The House committee is investigating the days leading up to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, the events during it, and its aftermath.

The invasion of the halls of Congress by a mob of Trump supporters came after weeks of false claims by Trump that he had actually won the 2020 election.”

CDC/COVID-19/TRUMP ADMINISTRATION: “A top official at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the Trump White House ‘forced’ the agency to relax its COVID-19 guidance for houses of worships, which left him worried that people would ‘get sick and perhaps die’ as a result, according to a newly unveiled May 2020 email thread.”

COVID-19/JOE BIDEN/VACCINES: “Former President Trump said Tuesday [December 21, 2021] that he is ‘very appreciative’ and ‘surprised’ that President Biden thanked him and his administration for their success in making COVID-19 vaccines available to the public, telling Fox News that ‘tone’ and ‘trust’ are critical in getting Americans vaccinated…

‘Thanks to the prior administration and our scientific community, America is one of the first countries to get the vaccine,’ Biden said Tuesday…

‘I’m very appreciative of that — I was surprised to hear it,’ Trump told Fox News. ‘I think it was a terrific thing, and I think it makes a lot of people happy.’”

2020 ELECTION/CONGRESS/INVESTIGATIONS/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Scott Perry, a Pennsylvania Republican and the first sitting member of Congress to be requested to provide documents and sit for an interview with the committee investigating the Capitol riot, said on Tuesday he would not comply with the panel…

Perry’s refusal to appear sets up a potentially fraught battle if the panel decides to subpoena him and he – like other Trump allies – decides to ignore that too.”

2020 ELECTION/INVESTIGATIONS: “Why isn’t the Unselect Committee of highly partisan political hacks investigating the CAUSE of the January 6th protest, which was the rigged Presidential Election of 2020? Does anybody notice that they want to stay as far away from that topic as possible, the numbers don’t work for them, or even come close. The only thing they can do is not talk about it. Look at what is going on now in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, and, to a lesser extent, Michigan where the numbers are horrendously corrupt in Detroit, but the weak Republican RINOs in the Michigan House and Senate don’t want to touch the subject.”

2020 ELECTION/DEMS/GOP: “In many ways a RINO is worse than a Radical Left Democrat, because you don’t know where they are coming from and you have no idea how bad they really are for our Country. The good news is there are fewer and fewer RINOs left as we elect strong Patriots who love America. I will be having a news conference on January 6th at Mar-a-Lago to discuss all of these points, and more. Until then, remember, the insurrection took place on November 3rd, it was the completely unarmed protest of the rigged [2020] election that took place on January 6th.”

COVID-19/VACCINES: “Mr. Trump was in Texas on Sunday as part of a speaking tour with Bill O’Reilly, the author and former Fox News host, when Mr. O’Reilly said that both he and Mr. Trump ‘are vaxxed.’

Mr. O’Reilly then asked, ‘Did you get the booster?’

‘Yes,’ Mr. Trump said.

‘I got it too,’ Mr. O’Reilly said.

The crowd began to boo…

Mr. Trump said that his supporters should get vaccinated because, he suggested, unwillingness to do so represented a victory for liberals. ‘What we’ve done is historic,’ he said of the three Covid vaccines in use in the United States that were developed while he was in office. ‘Don’t let them take away, don’t take it away from ourselves. You’re playing right into their hands when you sort of like, ‘oh, the vaccine.’’”

2020 ELECTION: “Former President Donald Trump downplayed the seriousness of the Jan. 6 insurrection — an attack that led to five deaths and cost millions of dollars in damages to the U.S. Capitol — during stops in Houston and Dallas this weekend.

‘W​hat happened on Jan. 6 was a protest against a rigged election, that’s what it was,’ Trump said to cheers Sunday at American Airlines Center in Dallas. ‘This wasn’t an insurrection.’ […]

During a four-stop tour with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly revisiting his presidency, Trump hammered on the false insistence that he, in fact, won the 2020 election.”

2020 ELECTION/DEMS/INVESTIGATIONS: “All the Democrats want to do is put people in jail. They are vicious, violent, and Radical Left thugs. They are destroying people’s lives, which is the only thing they are good at. They couldn’t get out of Afghanistan without disgracing our Country. The economy and inflation are a disaster. They’re letting thugs and murderers into our Country—their DA’s, AG’s, and Dem Law Enforcement are out of control. This is what happens in communist countries and dictatorships, and they don’t think they’ll be held accountable for rigging the 2020 Presidential Election. The Jan. 6 Unselect Committee is a coverup for what took place on November 3rd, and the people of our Country won’t stand for it.”

ISRAEL/RELIGION: “Former President Donald Trump shared what he thought about American Jews in a recent interview with the Israeli journalist Barak Ravid…

‘People in this country that are Jewish no longer love Israel. I’ll tell you, the evangelical Christians love Israel more than the Jews in this country. It used to be that Israel had absolute power over Congress. And today I think it’s the exact opposite,’ Trump told Ravid.

‘I’ve said this for a long time: The Jewish people in the United States either don’t like Israel or don’t care about Israel,’ he said later.

‘The New York Times hates Israel, hates them. And they’re Jewish people that run The New York Times…’”

The committee, which spent months working to interview former Trump officials, said the administration worked to undermine the public health response to the coronavirus pandemic by blocking officials from speaking publicly, watering down testing guidance and attempting to interfere with other public health guidance.”

The committee on Nov. 22 subpoenaed Stone for records and testimony, along with four other people linked to the planning of pro-Trump rallies in Washington on Jan. 5 and Jan. 6, prior to the Capitol attack…

LEGISLATION/MITCH MCCONNELL: “Mitch McConnell has given away the Unfrastructure Bill and will soon be giving away the Build Back Worse Bill, which will change the very fabric of our society. This was all made possible by the two-month extension he gave the Democrats, the separation of the two Bills, and, most importantly, his lack of courage in playing the Debt Ceiling Card. He has grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory! How this guy can stay as Leader is beyond comprehension—this is coming not only from me, but from virtually everyone in the Republican Party. He is a disaster and should be replaced as ‘Leader’ ASAP!”

INVESTIGATIONS/NEW YORK: “[T]he citizens of New York saw how unfairly and viciously she [Letitia James] and other highly partisan New York Democrat prosecutors were treating President Donald J. Trump. It’s called Prosecutorial Misconduct. Rather than continue to waste her time and taxpayer resources on a long continuing Witch Hunt against the Republican Party and me, she should focus her attention on helping to resurrect the once Great State of New York where crime and poverty continue to wreak havoc, with murder, rape, drug sales, and just about every other form of crime at record levels, and now with a just-announced highest unemployment rate in the Nation. New York is dying before our very eyes, and all the Democrat Prosecutors are focused on is how we can get and punish Donald Trump, who many would say has done, over the years, a spectacular job for New York!”

The congressional oversight investigation grew out of Mr. Trump’s refusal to make his tax returns public when he ran for president and, once he was in office, his decision not to divest his business dealings or place them into a blind trust while he was president.”
