    Pretty sure I have 3 chicks that are protesters behind me. They refused to stand and pledge flag. Two white hippie looking millenials and a young black chick. They already seem to have a chip on their shoulders

    I need advice

    I’ve been getting receipts & notices from Pearson Testing.
    Apparently someone used my email address. I think it’s by accident – the person may not realize it.
    Do I –

    A) do nothing
    B) go to the site, request a new password via my email, log in and find out who this is
    C) contact the site
    D) ?

      She should’ve titled this “The Great MSM/DNC Khan Job”

      BTW, that statement Hillary made, along with the “concern troll” tone of voice, really disgusted me. Where is the candidate I did oppo research for in ’08? Or was this always her? (Don’t answer – I know already, and I’m disgusted with both myself and HRC)

    Probably last update for a bit Trump will speak any minute. Almost full here Def over 10,000

  8. Somebody says:

    Wow last of seats filling! PPL still coming in YUGE crowd dayum

  9. Somebody says:

    I’ll try again Internet slow. Yuge crowd almost full 15,000 seat arena ppl still coming in sparse empty seats except those with no view and ppl now sitting there behind media and big flags……Trump about to take stage

  10. John Denney says:

    I’ve become inured to MSM reports about the evils of Trump, finding all the reports to be overblown hyperbole at best.

    But a Facebook friend was *really* upset with Trump’s “insult” of a Gold Star family, the Khans.

    So, I made the effort to plow through the MSM drivel until I found what Donald actually said.

    He merely observed that the wife was very quiet, then mused that perhaps she was not allowed to speak.

    CNN calls this an “attack”.

    I see it as Trump being concerned for a woman’s rights.

    B-b-but that can’t possibly be true! He’s a black hearted, misogynistic xenophobe!

    If you believe the MSM, that is.

    • taw46 says:

      All of the reports said he slandered, he attacked, he lashed out. None of that was true. All lies. And people who didn’t read what he said, or look at his interviews, believed it. The media doesn’t even try to hide it anymore, the lying, twisting of stories. Never in my lifetime did I ever think I would see such a thing in our country.

        Fight back against the establishment parties (they are so owned) and the despicable MSM propaganda machine; vote Trump!

        What I want all of you to do is open up your windows, stick your head out and scream “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore”.

          I remember the guy ranting from the floor at Wall Street in the same sort of way, and that began the Tea Party ! (found it, watch the whole thing, it gets better!)

  11. Venus says:

    Trump had a rally today with 10,000 people. He generated $80 million in donations in July, $64 million in small donations, and the MSM is shaking their heads at how he can act like everything is going well when his campaign is “imploding; Manafort is phoning it in; staff is suicidal.” These dumb fucks are delusional. Trump said he & his supporters are going to have to “punch through the media” and he’s right.

    A.B. Stoddard on Bret Baeir said –I kid you not — that she would love to cover the $400 million Iran ransom story but the problem is it is drowned out because Trump says something stupid.

    Such utter b.s. – Trump is a pretext the MSM uses to NOT cover things like the DNC firing it’s top people in the middle of the GE, the ransom, Dems lack of unity, etc. They *choose* how much focus/airtime a story gets.

    • taw46 says:

      Great tweet.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Yes. It’s a massive coordinated push to damage Trump. Trump and we all knew these types of efforts were coming. And frankly it doesn’t matter what the pretext was. It could have been Kahn, a baby, sneezing the wrong way, whatever. The game was set to launch was only waiting for the signal.

      After this one dies down, the next one will be ready to go. And on and on. Trump will have to counter these, and learn how these battles are fought. Assuming he hasn’t already. The powerful in both parties, the media, the US government, globalist businesses, and most other countries, want to destroy Trump.

      • Venus says:

      • Constance says:

        I think they are crying wolf too soon and too often relative to Trump. Ever time one of the media’s little trash bombs goes off I start looking for a Hillary or DNC disaster they are trying to ignore.

        So I’m wondering how is Hillary’s campaign going? How many were fired from the DNC? She can’t fill her rally venues. Wiki leaks is planning a new document dump on Hillary. Are any of her campaign bosses going to get fired over the primary rigging or the hacking?

    Rally ended a few minutes ago, Trump’s motorcade already left. Huge crowd, two small groups of protesters outside. One group is about 5 guys with potty mouths. A few supporters engaging them media all over filming. We did have some inside, but not much. Media crawled all over themselves to film them…….I called the media assholes. The chick’s behind us chickened out after protesters in front of us got escorted out

  21. Somebody says:

    OK last comment because it’s WAY past my bedtime……I’m going to be hating life tomorrow when my alarm goes off at 4:45……poor grandbabies, I have a feeling I might be grumpy tomorrow or should I say grumpier than usual, LMAO!

    Sooooo the most interesting conversation I had tonight was with an AA woman probably about my age. She apparently voted for Ozero, but is on the Trump train. (By the way when she made that confession, nobody in our little area…..not one person condemned her or said a negative thing) She was talking to me, but other people were listening and I just let her talk affirming things or adding little tidbits. She talked about how Trump’s message resonated with her. She also talked about how hopeful she was when O was elected. She said Trump was right about the shovel ready jobs, the stimulus, etc. She was visibly angered over the news of 400 million going to Iran in the dead of night. She talked about the Iran hostage crisis, how vividly she remembered that and segued into Ronald Reagan and how we haven’t as a nation had a lot of national pride since then. She said she thought Trump would return national pride and patriotism.

    She also talked about pastor Burns’ message of how politicians, especially dems try to divide us by the color of our skin. Then she quoted him and said it’s time for us to concentrate not on the colors that divide us, but the colors that unite us……red, white, and blue.

    After that an Asian woman with a thick accent asked “How anybody vote for Hillary, she crooked”. The AA woman then went off about Hillary, LOL! I piped in a few things that she overlooked and the Asian woman again said “I no understand, how anybody vote for her. There must be a lot of crazy people in this country. Why the polls say she ahead.” All the way out that woman kept saying “But I no understand how anybody vote for Hillary she a criminal”, LMAO!

    Oh and btw a fairly mixed crowd, I’d guess about 15% to maybe 20% AA. That wasn’t as high as I had hoped JAX is about 30% AA. However, I think every Asian in the greater JAX area was there, LOL! JAX has about a 5% Asian population, LOTS of Asian people there. I think probably 90% of the Hispanic population was there. JAX is only 8.9% Hispanic. Seriously at least where I was sitting there were quite a few Hispanics, including the most adorable family behind me a couple of rows. They had all of their children dressed to the nines and so well behaved!!!

    So all in all a pretty mixed crowd. Only that one group of protesters which were ridiculous. They came in dressed in homemade tee shirts that said “Fuck Trump” or “Trump is a pussy”. Young kids, like late teens just looking for their 15 minutes I think. The media fawned all over them and gave one chick way too much camera time. Security threw out the two guys almost immediately, but let the two girls stay until we started chanting “Get them out”. That was when I chastised the media. The girls behind us left shortly after that, I think they chickened out.

    Boy this is long……don’t ban me bro! I think I reported earlier we stood out on the smoking deck and watched Trump’s motorcade leave…….yes we have a smoking deck at our arena, it’s outside but covered, gotta love the south!!! We live north of the airport and as luck would have it on the way home we were on the interstate coming past the airport just as Trump’s plane took off!!!

    • votermom says:

      Great report! Thanks, Somebody!

    • Venus says:

      Thanks for the report!

    • Somebody says:

      Thanks guys, I came back to correct something or to be a little more honest……the 90% of the Hispanic population is an exaggeration to be sure, the arena isn’t big enough to hold 90% of the Hispanic population, LOL! But there were honestly a lot of Hispanics there, far more than I anticipated. That being said we have a fairly good size Cuban community here and they are generally more conservative.

      The Asian quip, totally not an exaggeration…..I swear I think every Asian in the greater JAX area was at that rally.

      Now I really, really have to go to bed…….a little over 4 hours sleep, OY!

    • swanspirit says:

      Thanks so much for your report!!! The crowds are much more mixed than the propagandists report.

    • Dora says:

      Yes thanks. I was watching the rally on live stream, but there’s nothing like getting a first hand account from the inside. I loved it!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Fabulous report, it was like being there with you 🙂 Interesting demographics when you think of the entire country, the rally was well represented by all.

      Sounded like you had a blast and so glad you now have that experience of feeling all that energy. Closest I came was an overflow room with 1200 people and a giant tv screen. And that was pretty exciting being with like minds, I can only imagine what the main event would have been like 😀 Thanks for sharing the fun!

      • Somebody says:

        I should have also mentioned the ages of the people. LOTS of young people, lots as in stunning probably close to half. Lots of young families and just groups of friends, in fact all around me the crowd was I’d say 30 something with good amount of 20 something mixed in.

        One exception was an elderly gentleman in his 90’s. His two daughters brought him to the rally at his insistence. They helped him down the stairs toward the front where we were, we were on the 3rd row back. Unfortunately all the seats were taken at that point and the only ones were directly behind the media with no view, but they sat there anyway. His daughter asked if she could borrow one of our signs so he could have his picture taken with it, my husband gave it to her. This man was overwhelmed in a good way, he was so excited. He says his goal is to live long enough to vote, LOL! He said this is the first election he’s ever been excited about and he simply couldn’t miss the rally. His daughters were clearly concerned about him being there, but they said it was so important to him they had to bring him.

        Sooooo upon hearing that one of the young men on the front row gave the elderly man his seat, sniff, sniff. (There was one empty seat by us with limited view and initially hubby and I were going to move down so the man could have my seat with a clear view and hubby could still see if he stood, but then the front row people got involved) Actually making sure the man had a seat was a waste of time, because he stood throughout Trump’s entire speech, hand to God! His daughters stayed in the seats behind the media but were within earshot and they kept urging him to sit down, but he refused.

        It was so cool, his excitement was contagious he was in the middle of a group of 20 somethings, the guy that gave up the seat came a few rows back and sat next to us. Anyway the youngsters enjoyed that gentleman and he kept them on their feet, if they sat down he told them to get back up and they did. There was one point where the man was hooting really loud and almost fell over, the two young men next to him propped him up and offered to help him into his seat but he refused so they just helped him steady for a couple of minutes, LOL!

        • taw46 says:

          I briefly saw Chris Matthews last night talking to one of their reporters at the Jax rally. You could tell he did not like the large crowd. He asked her if the make-up of the crowd had changed any since the primaries, was it still mostly old white men, she said yes. They will lie all the way to the end.

          • Somebody says:

            Well that is a complete and total lie, at least in the area where I was sitting. There were plenty of young people, tons and lots of women. There was one group of women together about 5 or 6 rows back from me. A mixed group of women ethnically and age wise 50 to probably 70, about ten in their group maybe. Seriously their make up just about reflected the ethnic make up of our area, I talked to them in the bathroom they were all jazzed.

            Otherwise it was mostly couples or groups of friends. There were two large groups of young men in their 20’s near me. One group spread across the front row, only two girls in that group. Then behind me to my right a few rows up, another large group of young guys in their 20’s probably 10-15 in that group. Otherwise couples and young families. The couples ranged in age from young to seniors.

            To be fair to the reporter and Matthews, the early crowd was decidedly older so I don’t know what time they had their conversation. The younger people didn’t start arriving in mass until the last 45 minutes or so before the rally began. I’m going to assume that’s because they had to get off work first, but what do I know.

            I paid close attention to the crowds trying to get a feel for the support base and I’m intimately familiar with political events in JAX. In a past life I was involved in politics in Jacksonville, so I think I’m a fair judge. I was A) blown away by the size of the crowd, B) shocked by the youth presence and C) stunned by the Asian turn out and D) overall pleased with diversity of the crowd although I would have liked to have seen a higher percentage of AA’s.

            *****As I said I have experience at political events in Duval county, specifically republican political events, YEARS of experience. I assure you this was a much more diverse crowd than what you’d normally see at a republican event. My comment about hoping to see more AA has to do with me wanting to see the crowd reflect the city’s ethnic make up. As you know AA’s generally vote D. A typical republican event doesn’t pull in AA’s, maybe a couple of them and they are generally well known faces; this was more organic but I had hoped for a little bit more based on what I’ve seen from some other rallies. None the less, I repeat this was a far younger and far more diverse crowd than is the norm for a Duval county republican political event.****

        • votermom says:

          Awww! That makes me a bit misty-eyed, to tell you the truth.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Trump supporters are the best ! Whether on the internet or in real life, very kind people.

        • lateblum says:

          Somebody, these were great reports and observations. It was so much better than hearing something on the tv/radio. I loved your account of the 90 y/o gentleman. How good of his daughters to take him to the event. It is also wonderful to know that younger people are interested and perhaps invested in the direction we are heading and are willing to look at their options. Best of all, I am delighted that you were able to be there. Thanks for including us. 🎈🎈🎈

    I just can’t anymore…..

    • lateblum says:

      That is exactly my thought…….. “I just can’t anymore”.
      This constant beating of the drums against Trump, no matter how ridiculous the topic, is wearing me down. I’ve taken to turning my radio off and my tv to other channels. Honestly, Bozo the clown and Mr. Ed have more substance than anything remotely related to this election season.
      I just can’t anymore, either.

  29. DandyTIger says:

    Fun over at the Trump supporting Reddit pages. This one points out how all of this coordinated work is a last ditch effort to derail Trump before the first debate.

    • taw46 says:

      Just now, Katy Tur (I think) on MSNBC, talking about the GOP intervention. Saying Trump needs to 1) quit attacking a Gold Star mom 2) quit arguing with a mother and her baby 3) you should have never accepted that Purple Star but turned around and pinned it on that man’s chest.

      Thank goodness I am older now. Mostly I just shake my head at these people and what they are doing. When I was younger, I probably would have been so mad, I would have had a stroke.

      • lizzy says:

        You have ultimate control-turn the switch off and don’t turn it back on. You don’ need their lies and delusion. All the channels are the same.

        • taw46 says:

          Lol. I don’t watch MSNBC, my relatives had it on. I don’t turn off their tv, they can watch what they want to. I know what the media does 😉.

  30. taw46 says:

    This is what they have been doing after every one of these recent stabbings, calling the person mentally ill. I am in awe of their ability to make a diagnosis within a few hours. That way, we don’t have to talk about evil and terrorism.

    “This is the moment a mentally ill Norwegian of Somali origin was pinned to the ground after he murdered an American woman and injured five pedestrians on a knife rampage in Russell Square last night.
    His victim, a US citizen in her 60s, said ‘he’s still here’ as she used her final words to warn others their lives were also in danger, a witness told MailOnline today.
    She died in a pool of blood as she was cradled by a family of Spanish tourists, as the 19-year-old silently stabbed pedestrians in the back, side and arms who were left ‘screaming and covered in blood’. ”
