look subby are implying these aren't good  Christians. Are you implying  they are simply handlers meant to remind Donnie of V Putin.

Someone should tell Trump that Russians dont celebrate Christmas on December 25th.

Is this orthodox?

Late last month, the U.S. Treasury Department released an unclassified list of Russian oligarchs who could be the target of future U.S. sanctions. The list was widely mocked for being little more than a copy paste job of a Forbes list of Russia's wealthiest citizens.
Nevertheless, the list sparked some outrage in Russia, and some members of the Duma announced that they would boycott Trump's prayer breakfast in response


Oh no. Don't boycott his breakfast. Anything but that. Don't not come. We couldn't bare you not being here in Guantan*COUGH*National Prayer Breakfast. Please come!

I saw that pic and thought "well the text is as backwards as this administration". Seems apropos.

That doesn't prove collusion. It's just an unrelated coincidence.

Like all the other unrelated coincidences over the last 2 years.

Yeah, that's not suspicious at all. I mean, if Obama had been surrounded by Iranians or Saudis when he went to his daily prayers at the mosque, we'd have heard about it for sure.

Putin has been using the Russian orthodox church to solidify his base since the apartment bombings. Lot's of details if you want to look them up but it's been a major part of his anti-Muslim, anti-Gay and anti-freedom movement. Pretty damned frightening every one of those things is happening in the USA at breakneck speed.

Trick question. They would have said Nothing, as Russians are white and Christian. Reporting on it would have made B Hussein soetoro seem less scary and foreign.

The big story on Fox News at this moment is that we don't live on the same plane of existence as conservatives.
 
2018-02-08 01:34:31 PM  
Meh. I'm more concerned about him outright refusing to enforce sanctions, even after we've learned that Russia directly accessed (and very likely tampered with) voter data in numerous states. Oh, and him repeatedly giving classified intelligence directly to Russians in closed-door meetings. And let's not forget that he's repeatedly tried to obstruct Mueller's investigation.

The list goes on. Anyone who doesn't see that Trump is Putin's biatch, and thus an enemy of the United States, has blinders on.
 
2018-02-08 01:35:06 PM  
Commies aren't supposed to believe in religion so why would they be attending a prayer breakfast?  The term "in God we Trust" was added to our currency as an FU to the Russians.

"Meanwhile, Trump's staunchest religious supporters, white evangelical Christians, have also developed long-standing ties to Russia through international pro-life and anti-LGTB hate conferences and hateorganizations. The World Congress of HatefulFamilies, an anti-LGTB rights group, regularly brings together members of Russia's hatefulChristian right with hatefulevangelical Christians."

None idiot. Everyone at Obama's was a Muslim Kenyan and everyone at Dubya's was a Saudi Arabian involved in 9/11

Thank God we don't. i observed an argument on Facebook this morning among some former classmates & the lone Trump supporter was yelling about all the damn liberals ruining the country and going on & on about Obummer & Killary. I don't want to be on his plane of existence.

Russia isn't Communist, it's not even pretending to be anymore. Maybe that's why Republicans are so happy to sell out America to Russia now.

As if having a government sanctioned "National Prayer Breakfast" isn't bad enough.  And yes, the fact that Obama attended them doesn't make it right.

This thinking confuses me. So bad guys gave away their money to a lobbying firm that may or may not have given it to a charity that does far-reaching good works and has an impeccable reputation? They do realize that none of the Clintons take a salary from the Foundation, yes? And there's never been a hint that they funnel it to themselves, unlike others I could name.

If I were the Clintons, I would be like "fark, yeah, I'm taking your ill-gotten gains and using them to help others around the globe" not to mention that there were, what, 8 other people who approved the uranium deal? Did Killary even vote on it?

You can say that again.  Putin is very much like Osama bin Laden - he knows our weaknesses better than we do and he is willing to exploit them.  Putin figured out that he could simply buy us; no need to fight a war. There were apparently more than enough Congressmen willing to sell themselves.  Since it has become obvious that no one is going to do shiat about it there's no need to hide it anymore.

/My tin foil hat theory is that Putin had a couple of shipping containers of cash sent to Baltimore and various agents have been laundering it through PACs, the DNC and the RNC. The people working the hardest to obstruct Mueller are the dirtiest.

CSB: I saw Red Heat in the theater and the opening credits of the movie had all of the R's reversed and someone in the theater yelled out, "How am I supposed to read that crap!! It's in Russian!"

That might have been the funniest part of the movie.
