Trump defends NFL tweets amid Puerto Rico crisis: 'I have plenty of time on my hands'

President Trump defended his barrage of tweets berating professional athletes as Puerto Rico reels in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

Denying he was preoccupied by his feud with the National Football League, Trump said Tuesday, “I have plenty of time on my hands. All I do is work.”

The president has been embroiled in a five-day controversy stemming from his criticism of football players who kneel during the playing of the national anthem. Colin Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, began demonstrating in 2016 to draw attention to police brutality and racial injustice, and other players followed suit.

At a rally Friday, Trump mused, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired.’”

In the days since, Trump has tweeted furiously about the issue, vilifying “certain players” who protest and demanding the NFL make a rule that players must stand during the playing of the national anthem.

“To me, the NFL situation is a very important situation,” Trump said Tuesday, rejecting the idea that his fixation on it has hobbled his response to Hurricane Maria.

The Category 4 storm made landfall in Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory, Sept. 20. Most of the island remains without power, and at least 16 people have died. Trump said Monday he will visit Puerto Rico, which he described as “literally destroyed,” next week.

“It’s the most difficult job because it’s on an island,” Trump said of aid efforts. “It’s on an island in the middle of the ocean. It’s out in the ocean. You can’t just drive your trucks there from other states.”

Pro-Kaepernick Army Officer Tweets “Communism Will Win” Photo

A Twitter user who is reportedly an active duty Army officer and West Point graduate signaled his support for former NFL quarterback-turned-social-justice-hero, Colin Kaepernick, as well as a proclamation that “Communism will win” – while in uniform, in a photo uploaded to his account this weekend.

 

Spenser Rapone posted the image of himself raising a clenched fist salute – a gesture know well within communist and radical leftist circles – with the caption “#VeteransForKaepernick” – a show of solidarity for NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.

According to LawNewz, Rapone verified the authenticity of the photo when contacted for comment.

LawNewz verified the legitimacy of the photograph with Rapone himself. He is currently in the field until Friday and unable to answer detailed questions.”

The photograph went viral on Twitter, with Rapone posting a follow-up depicting him at West Point Military Academy, flashing a ‘Che Guevara’ t-shirt under his dress uniform.

“In case there was any lingering doubt, hasta la victoria siempre,” reads his caption, a hat tip to “Hasta Siempre, Comandante,” an ode to Guevara that translates, “until victory, always.”

An investigation into other social media accounts that appear to belong to Rapone reflect a deep commitment to communist ideology, anti-Trump sentiments, and the violent leftist street thugs of Antifa.

An Instagram account sharing the same handle as Rapone’s Twitter account (@punkproletarian) is packed with communist propaganda, including a card that reads, “Kill every last capitalist dog.”

In his Twitter bio, which is decorated with communist emojis, he describes himself as a “Commie/space cowboy/straight edge insomniac,” and links to the account for “Democratic Socialist of America, Veterans Working Group.”

A linked personal blog contains a single entry composed after the controversial recent conflict in Charlottesville in which Rapone writes, “I would like to focus on a specific place that preserves the Confederate legacy not often-discussed: my alma mater, the United States Military Academy.”

“In every corner of West Point, New York, one can readily discover white supremacist iconography and visual rhetoric. There are some that stand out more than others. As we shall see, these sordid displays of the worst aspects of American history reify [sic] a profoundly racist culture that has existed since the inception of this country.”

“Until our demands are met, we continue the long march,” he concludes, a reference to the literal and figurative ‘long march’ of communism and the Red Chinese Army under Mao Zedong.

An article written by a “Spenser Rapone” that appeared in the New Castle News, a local publication operating very near to Rapone’s advertised hometown of Watertown, NY, begins, “Forget Trump, Clinton, even capitalism — embrace socialism.”

President Trump tweets: ‘North Korea won’t be around much longer!’



WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — President Donald Trump made clear to North Korea’s leadership Saturday night that they are not going to last very long if they continue on their aimless rocket quest.

The President tweeted: “Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!”

This comes the same month that Hawaii residents were warned in a “special message” from the President to prepare for a nuclear attack.

How much longer will North Korea be around?

‘Pure speculation’: British Home Sec dismisses Trump’s Parsons Green tweets (VIDEO)

Twenty-nine people were injured when an improvised explosive device partially detonated on a London tube train in Parsons Green station on Friday morning.

Rudd made the comments on BBC’s Andrew Marr Show on Sunday, after Trump claimed the person who carried out the attack was known to British police.

It’s never helpful to have speculation about an ongoing operation and I would include the President of the United States in that comment,” said Rudd.

She went on to call the claim “pure speculation,” and said the information is not a leak from Britain.

Prime Minister Theresa May also criticised Trump’s comments about the attack as unhelpful.

I never think it’s helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation,” said May.

On Friday, a Metropolitan Police spokesperson described Trump’s comment as “pure speculation.”

Two men, aged 18 and 21, have been arrested in connection to Friday’s bombing. Britain remains on its highest level of alert on Sunday, meaning another attack is believed to be imminent. Police have asked the public to remain vigilant and alert them to any suspicious activity.

This Collection of Trump’s Tweets Contradicting Themselves Proves US Presidents Are Puppets

tweetstweets

For nearly every decision Donald Trump has announced as president, there seems to be a small collection of Tweets he has published at some point within the last decade that directly contradict his current decisions—raising speculation about just how much freedom he has, and how many of his policies are being decided for him.

The most recent example occurred this week when Trump announced that he will follow in the footsteps of former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama by continuing the War in Afghanistan—the longest war in U.S. history, which has been ongoing for 16 years.

President Trump presented the never-ending war as a cornerstone of American culture by saying, “American patriots from every generation have given their last breath on the battlefield—for our nation and for our freedom.”

However, Businessman Trump shared a very different opinion when he commented on the situation in February 2012. “It is time to get out of Afghanistan. We are building roads and schools for people that hate us. It is not in our national interests,” He wrote on Twitter.

As he campaigned for re-election in May 2012, Obama appeared to share a similar sentiment, making the statement that “By 2014, the war in Afghanistan will be over.”

“I agree with Pres. Obama on Afghanistan,” Trump wrote in January 2013. “We should have a speedy withdrawal. Why should we keep wasting our money — rebuild the U.S.!”

Trump also previously wrote that he agreed with Ron Paul’s stance on Afghanistan in August 2011. “Ron Paul is right that we are wasting trillions of dollars in Iraq and Afghanistan,” He said.

Ironically, Paul was one of Trump’s biggest critics on Monday, publishing a series of Tweets during Trump’s speech on Afghanistan that called out his administration for the blatant hypocrisy it is displaying to appease a neoconservative, war-mongering agenda.

“Sad that these wars the politicians argue for are unconstitutional yet we are told we are over there defending the Constitution,” Paul wrote, followed by, “The American people deserve to know when we are going to war and MUST give you permission through their representatives in Congress!”

Even though the fresh-faced Illinois senator and the New York business mogul expressed support for putting an end to the miserable failure that has been the War in Afghanistan, they both ended up contributing to it. And this is just the beginning of the long list of examples.

Several of Trump’s most contradictory Tweets have been chronicled on a Sub-Reddit titled “Trump Criticizes Trump,” which is a fitting name for a page filled with 140-character rants, jabs and insults that perfectly describe everything that is wrong with the president’s current policies.

In June 2015, as his presidential campaign was just beginning, Trump claimed that if elected, he would cut back on vacation time. “I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done,” he said. “I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off.”

That comment fell directly in line with one of Trump’s biggest complaints about his predecessor. In October 2011, Trump took to Twitter to ask, Why is Barack Obama always campaigning or on vacation?

Then in July 2014, Trump wrote, “Obama is on yet another two-day West Coast fundraising swing. Has to fit it in before his 15-day tax-payer funded vacation.”

However, instead of setting the example once he took office, Trump decided to take some vacation time of his own. While he criticized Obama for taking a 15-day vacation, Trump just concluded a 17-day vacation, bringing his total to 53 vacation days while in office, which is three times the number of vacation days Obama took in the same time period.

Another aspect Trump criticized Obama on was the amount of time he spent campaigning for re-election, instead of focusing on the American people. However, it should be noted that Trump’s first campaign rally occurred in Florida on Feb. 18—less than one month after he was inaugurated.

Trump’s past Tweets serve as a very real reminder of what happens when a regular citizen assumes the office of president and he is forced to change his policies in order to fit the narrative that has become the status quo for all presidents in the U.S.

As he wrote in March 2014, “It’s almost like the United States has no President—we are a rudderless ship heading for a major disaster. Good luck everyone!”

In the same way that Obama gained votes by criticizing warrantless government surveillance and pushing for an end to the United States’ war-mongering foreign policy, Trump gained votes by speaking out against the establishment and promising to bring an end to a reckless pattern of regime-change wars.

Every 4 years, a new puppet is considered for the White House, and every 4 years the public continues to ignore the fact that the government only continues to grow, armed with a series of all-powerful agencies that face no accountability—from the CIA creating terrorist groups to overthrow foreign leaders, to the NSA illegally spying on innocent Americans, to the Pentagon failing to account for billions, if not trillions, of taxpayer dollars.

If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, then why hasn’t it become clear that the American public is stuck in an insane cycle of believing that simply electing the “right candidate” will solve a sea of problems that seem to stay the same, no matter which individual is in office or which party is in “control”?

BLuke Miller Truth Theory

“If Twitter forces me to see those things, then they will have to see them too.”

It could be argued that 2 wrongs don’t make a right, however, this is not the approach Shahak Shapira took in retaliation to some very offensive tweets twitter refused to remove from their site.

The Artist decided to take to the Twitter sidewalk, spraying 30 hateful tweets, taken from over 300 incidents he reported under Germany’s hate-speech laws.
