OK, I know OPP is basically a coven of Trump minions, but it's over the top to label all the liberals who dare to post here as "trolls".

Who said all liberals here are trolls? You show your true colors when you say something like that. There are some very decent liberals on this site who have valuable input into decent conversations. You, sir or madam, are not one of them.

Yes, true, Obama is beholden to Russia. But you have to get over this. Unless you want Barr, et al to go after him, you should refrain from trying to help.

It's still a draft-dodging issue between a Republican and a Democrat.
Just want the playing field to be leveled, Lonewolf. That's all. IMO a draft dodger is less important than someone who claims to be a war hero (Kerry). Or a United States Secretary of State claiming to be under direct fire upon landing on a tarmac and being presented with flowers from a little girl.

You better lighten up on the draft-dodging stuff because Biden dodged the draft by getting his doctor to say he had the height of the Vietnam war....after playing football and other sports and being a lifeguard at a swimming pool when he was in college. If you trash Trump for this, you will have to trash Biden, or else look like the hypocrite that we know you are.

It would seem that part of the story I posted about Hanoi Jane is not true, and some of the POWs have spoken out. While they still consider her a traitor, and much of what she is accused of actually happened, there appears to have not been an instance where she handed over notes to the North Vietnamese.

Sorry about that; but this does not lessen the impact of her other misdeeds. Even without this action there is a very strong case for treason to be made against her, and with all of her money, (@ $200 million) I have not been able to find any records of her donating anything to any veteran or POW organizations. To me this indicates apologizing with her mouth and not her heart. A PR stunt.

That's why erasers were invented! And it shows great character when a person admits they were wrong about something - good for you, Smedley! However, Fonda can't erase the fact that she used her position and wealth to commit treason against the very country that was providing her with that position and wealth! She is a hypocrite of the highest degree.

I like my idea better. Chain her behind a pickup truck and drag her treasonous ass up and down a dirt road. If you did it right she might last as much as a week.
Can you believe this whore thinks that publicly saying "she was sorry" made it all okay?
She is responsible for the torture deaths of American POWs. If she took a large chunk of her 200 million dollar estate and gave it to the families of the men whose deaths she caused it might make a difference.

She only said she "regretted" what she did because she was called on it. She never apologized.

That is what's wrong with this picture.

I wouldn't rule that out, either, though it's impossible, at this point in time, to really know or even have the basis for forming an educated guess without having known the people.

True. We never really know what drives someone to do something like what Jane did. And when I read what Smedley (the OP) posted, it makes me furious that she turned on those poor young soldiers! They trusted her, and she stabbed them in the back, and she should be held accountable for her actions now. And as you said - there is no statute of limitations for treason.

...unless his children were born with some kind of gene defect, you have to look at one or both parents.

Nowadays, though, with Democrats' irritating habit of infringing on parents' rights via the education system, anything's possible.

At some point in time you have to stop blaming the parents and hold the adult children accountable for their actions. It is more likely that the adult children's' current peers have more influence on them than how they were treated by their parents years ago. My opinion is that Jane Fonda was influenced by the anti-Vietnam war activists and not her parents.

I read this and was shaking and grinding my teeth by the end. This low life whore should have been drug behind a truck on a gravel road for about 20 miles.

Jane Fonda and her buddy John Kerry should have been tried and convicted of Treason and executed back in the 1960s. The following is just some of the things she did to screw with our POWs………………. Oh yeah, I’m a Vietnam Vet. See if you can guess which picture is of me…..

Barbara Walters writes:
Unfortunately, many have forgotten and still countless others have never known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our country, but specific men who served and sacrificed during the Vietnam War.

The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot. The pilot's name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat. In 1968, the former Commandant of the USAF Survival School was a POW in Ho LoPrison, the "Hanoi Hilton."

Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell, cleaned, fed, and dressed in clean PJ's, he was ordered to describe for a visiting American "peace activist" the "lenient and humane treatment" he'd received.

He spat at Ms. Fonda, was clubbed, and was dragged away. During the subsequent beating, he fell forward onto the camp commandant 's feet, which sent that officer berserk.

In 1978, the Air Force Colonel still suffered from double vision (which permanently ended his flying career) from the Commandant's frenzied application of a wooden baton.

From 1963-65, Col. Larry Carrigan was in the 47FW/DO (F-4E's). He spent 6 years in the "Hanoi Hilton". . . The first three of which his family only knew he was "missing in action." His wife lived on faith that he was still alive. His group, too, got the cleaned-up, fed and clothed routine in preparation for a "peace delegation" visit.

They, however, had time and devised a plan to get word to the world that they were alive and still survived. Each man secreted a tiny piece of paper, with his Social Security Number on it, in the palm of his hand. When paraded before Ms. Fonda and a cameraman, she walked the line, shaking each man's hand and asking little encouraging snippets like: "Aren't you sorry you bombed babies?" and "Are you grateful for the humane treatment from your benevolent captors?" Believing this HAD to be an act, they each palmed her their sliver of paper.

She took them all without missing a beat. . . At the end of the line and once the camera stopped rolling, to the shocked disbelief of the POWs, she turned to the officer in charge and handed him all the little pieces of paper...
Three men died from the subsequent beatings. Colonel Carrigan was almost number four but he survived, which is the only reason we know of her actions that day.

I was a civilian economic development adviser in Vietnam, and was captured by the North Vietnamese communists in South Vietnam in 1968, and held prisoner for over 5 years. I spent 27 months in solitary confinement; one year in a cage in Cambodia; and one year in a 'black box' in Hanoi. My North Vietnamese captors deliberately poisoned and murdered a female missionary, a nurse in a leprosarium in Banme Thuot, South Vietnam, whom I buried in the jungle near the Cambodian border. At one time, I weighed only about 90 lbs. (My normal weight is 170 lbs.) We were Jane Fonda's "war criminals."

When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp communist political officer if I would be willing to meet with her. I said yes, for I wanted to tell her about the real treatment we POWs received. . . and how different it was from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by her as "humane and lenient." Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees, with my arms outstretched with a large steel weight placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane. I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda soon after I was released. I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV. She never did answer me.

These first-hand experiences do not exemplify someone who should be honored as part of "100 Years of Great Women." Lest we forget. . . "100 Years of Great Women" should never include a traitor whose hands are covered with the blood of so many patriots.

There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to, but Hanoi Jane's participation in blatant treason, is one of them. Please take the time to forward to as many people as you possibly can. It will eventually end up on her computer, and she needs to know that we will never forget.

Breaking: Congressional Dems Still Sneaking Their Pay Raise Through!

The pressure is working! Republicans and Democrats are coming together to repeal a 1946 law that gives Congress yearly pay raises. But Pelosi and Schumer still want a raise!

We had a major victory this week. With your help, we sent over a hundred thousand FaxBlasts to Congress demanding that they shutdown Pelosi and the GOP’s plan to give Congress a pay raise.

Within hours, we saw Members of Congress start to rise up against the leadership in both parties and demand that they stand down. Not just conservatives, either. The vast majority were actually Democrats.

That’s right, you took action and actually compelled Democrats to turn against their own party leadership.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was angry. She went from bartending in New York last year to becoming a member of Congress and after five months on the job, she has been demanding a pay raise (isn't that so typical of her?)

The news reported that Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell, and McCarthy were going to stand down after admitting that the American people didn’t think they deserved a pay raise. But there is one problem: They didn’t promise to block the pay raise. They only promised to delay the vote until next week to give them time to think it over...

Congress doesn’t need to pass any legislation in order to get a pay raise. The raise is already written into a 1946 law and will be applied to their salaries automatically at the end of the year. They just need to stall long enough for you to forget about it and for the media to move onto other topics...

Here is the good news. With your help, we have taken a tiny provision in a decades-old law and turned it into a major issue. Republicans and Democrats alike are terrified that if they let these pay raises go into effect, you and the rest of their constituents will vote them out of office.

This is our best chance to put an end to automatic Congressional pay raises once and for all!

Please, send your instant message to Congress right now and FORCE them to pass No Raise for Congress Act and put an end to automatic Congressional pay raises once and for all!

Congressmen Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and Anthony Brindisi (D-NY) have introduced an bill that would put an end to automatic pay raises forever. It is called the No Raise for Congress Act.

The the legislation works by completely striking the automatic pay increase language found in the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946. No more automatic pay raises.

If Congress wants to give themselves a raise in the future, they would have to go on the record and actually vote for it. They would have to prove to the American people that they’ve earned a raise (which they haven’t). And if they ignore the will of the people and vote to give themselves a raise anyway, they would have to face the consequences.

This is what draining the swamp looks like. Think about it: this provision has been on the books since the end of World War II. For 73 years, Congress has been giving themselves raises without even voting on it and without any of us knowing about it. The result is that today, a member of Congress makes more than 3x as much as the average American. Nancy Pelosi makes almost FOUR times more than the average American.

It has to end.

This bill has a real chance of passing. Both parties are genuinely scared that they will be voted out of office over this. But the only way we can push this through is if YOU get loud and demand that Congress pass it.

We need numbers on this. We need everybody reading this to fight back and pressure Republicans and Democrats to pass No Raise for Congress Act!

Please, send your instant message to Congress right now and FORCE them to pass No Raise for Congress Act and put an end to automatic Congressional pay raises once and for all!

Please, help us finish this!

What on earth was the point of Sarah Sanders?

For 94 days, the outgoing White House press secretary gave no press briefing in the press room just a few steps from the press office that she nominally ran.

But the press did not stop pressing.

For more than three years, Sanders made no meaningful news on behalf of a boss who considers it his presidential priority to make as much meaningless news as possible.

Yet the news did not stop breaking.

Related: 'It's astonishing': The demise of the daily White House press briefing
With all the resources of the federal government’s communications machine at her fingertips, Sanders was the least resourceful communicator in Washington: a hapless and hopeless observer to every crisis, real or manufactured by the man sitting in the Oval Office, just down the hallway from her own.

In other words, she was the perfect spokeswoman for a perfectly lazy president.

Sanders may have demonstrated few obvious qualities as a press secretary: she earned no trust from the media, possessed no information to share with the world and enjoyed no grasp of policy or even politics.
She had no special insights into Donald Trump’s thinking and no special relationship with him either. Other than this: her capacity to dodge responsibility and the truth were a polished mirror of his character.

Normal spokespeople would have been mortified by the revelations of Robert Mueller that, by Sanders’ own admission, she just made stuff up when she briefed the press.

Speaking the day after the president fired then FBI director James Comey, Sanders told the media that “countless members of the FBI” – representing what she called “the rank-and-file of the FBI” – had lost confidence in Comey. She claimed that this was the reason why Comey was fired, even though Trump himself would later tell NBC News that his decision was because of “this Russia thing”.

Sanders later admitted to Mueller that she fabricated the entire smear. “She also recalled that her statement in a separate press interview that rank-and-file FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey was a comment she made ‘in the heat of the moment’ that was not founded on anything,” Mueller stated in his report.

But who really needs credibility, a sense of shame or any degree of self-respect when you’re working for Trump?

Speaking to Fox News after the Mueller report destroyed what was left of her reputation, Sanders worked her way through a few more fabrications. “Look, I acknowledged that I had a slip of the tongue when I used the word ‘countless’, but it’s not untrue,” she said.

That is some World Cup-quality lying. The single sentence includes at least three lies and there are only 21 words in it: an average of one lie for every seven words.

There was no acknowledgement of a slip of the tongue (lie No 1). It was no slip of the tongue (lie No 2). And she stands by the lie with the weasel words of a double negative about its non-untruthfulness (lie No 3 and quite possibly No 4).

You don’t get to lie as well as that by chance or amateur skill. It takes dedication and effort on the training ground to make it look so easy and natural.

Nancy Pelosi Just Crossed the Line With an Attack That Will Offend All Americans
Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi is the worst kind of elitist.

She doesn’t care about anybody in America besides herself.

And she just crossed the line with an attack that will offend all Americans.

The Democrats want nothing more than to impeach President Donald Trump.

Every single win he achieves is good news for America, but bad news for the Democrat Party.

Because prior to his election, the Democrats claimed that President Trump would destroy the country.

But with record low unemployment and a booming economy, that clearly isn’t true.

So people no longer trust the party.

This is proven by the massive viewership nosedive for their official propaganda network, CNN.

Their only way to turn things around is to impeach President Trump.

He will then go down in history as a disgrace, and Democrats will go down as the saviors of America.

But there is one problem in their plan, and it’s that the American people agree with Trump and support him.

His approval rating continues to climb.

And polling directly from CNN shows that the vast majority of Americans oppose impeachment.

But Nancy Pelosi has an explanation for why.

According to sources speaking to the Daily Beast, Pelosi believes that Americans don’t support impeachment because they are too dumb to understand the impeachment process.

The Daily Beast reports:

“The Speaker, according to two sources with knowledge of the meeting, expressed concerns that the public still doesn’t understand how the process of impeachment would play out. She noted that in her time over the recess in California well educated voters didn’t seem to understand that impeachment proceedings would not necessarily result in Trump’s immediate ouster from office.”

The American people clearly understand how impeachment works.

It wasn’t that long ago that Democrat hero Bill Clinton went through the same process.

But the difference is that Clinton had a reason to go through the process.

Democrats want to start impeachment proceedings not to investigate potential crimes, but to search for, and possibly create new crimes.

And if he is going through impeachment hearings going into the 2020 election, Democrats believe that it will look bad for the President in his campaign.

But that is likely to backfire.

Trump was elected because the American people were tired of politics as usual, and of establishment politicians like Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton.

If the establishment is forcing Trump through politically-motivated impeachment hearings, it will demonstrate the exact corruptions Americans voted for Trump to end.

And with a strong Republican majority in the Senate, the hearings have virtually no chance to go through.

If enough Republicans cross over to actually impeach Trump, it will likely result in the end of the Republican Party.

Trump is remarkably popular among Republican voters.

While his policy positions don’t go in line with establishment Republican politics all the time, he is proving to the voters that he knows how to make America great again.

What would happen if Democrats impeach President Trump?

Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

Nancy is Brain Dead!! and she is more Harm than Good to our Country!!! She needs to be put in check!!! Quick like, and kicked to the Curb, PRONTO!!!!. What do Y'all think?
Nancy Pelosi Just Crossed the Line With an Attack ... (show quote)

Peloski is scared silly to go ahead with impeachment proceedings. She knows it won't work (because of the Senate) and it will make Trump look extremely good going into the 2020 election. She is not a stupid person, and has her hands full with those Democrats who are foolish enough not to see this. Poor thing is between a rock and a hard place right now. Personally, I hope she does go ahead with it. I want to see that landslide win for Trump!!
