Good news but what's it have to so with Trump?

Nothing I'm sure, those types of operations take months or years to come to fruition.

I thought we were randomly assigning things to the POTUS that had little to do with him... I was just continuing the trend (or is it only suppose to be negative stuff, not positive?)

How many arrests were made in the previous month?

I looked into it... None.

Something is happening here, global child sex slave rings are being broken up at a RAPID rate and there's nearly zero media coverage...

#PIZZAGATE continues at a furious pace... Thank god for HRC and her corrupt campaign, if this stuff hadn't come out would any of these arrests taken place?

From one search - Grady Judd in Polk County FL does not let politics get in his way of getting the bad guys nor letting others know of his arrests.

over 2000 arrested in 2016.

so far we have around 2000 arrested in 2017 already... crazy that this is that big of a problem.

I guess I get trained on human trafficking every year at work, I'm just woefully uninformed as to the evils of this world apparently.

Huge, serious issue in FL and one of concern to local government and media for several years.

[wusfnews.wusf.usf.edu]

"Florida officials say the number of human trafficking cases have increased more than 50 percent in the state from the previous year. The increase in reported allegations of human trafficking was due in large part to increased training and a new screening tool developed between DCF, the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice and the attorney general. The Statewide Council on Human Trafficking also implemented specialized training for first responders and other child welfare professionals to help recognize the signs."

It may be that the problem is not worsening or worsening significantly but that it's being more recognized and therefore leading to more arrests.

i find it interesting that those looking to back up their conspiracy claim will never look at any evidence that does not support their conspiracy.

i dont know one way or another about this "pizzagate" but the statement is true for ALL conspiracies including the JFK one . you only look at the evidence to support your ideas on the subject.

No, it wasn't...

and it's sad that you've done no personal research on the topic, just allow your self to be spoonfeed info from media.

"pizza" gate is very real, Flynn got fired over it......

no, that's not it at all, do you just watch TV?

He was fired for violating a very specific act that no one has ever been convicted of, (nor ever will, since we have the 1st amendment). Not lying, not at all.


Flynn had been critical of Morell, Morell worked side by side with Philip Rains who is Sr adviser to HRC.. and tweeted right after flynn got fired "what goes around, COMETs around"...

referring to FLynn's comments about the Pizzagate.. HRC backed up with a follow on tweet (or who ever runs her twitter account).

So yeah.. that's as in your face as it gets.

But you didn't know any of that, did you?

Sorry, I read the transcript from Trumps press conference last week. "TRUMP: Mike Flynn is a fine person, and I asked for his resignation. He respectfully gave it. He is a man who there was a certain amount of information given to Vice President Pence, who is with us today. And I was not happy with the way that information was given."

He went on to say the same thing in similar words. Must have been alternative facts

yes, there's no such thing as political intrigue, everything in Washington is not only what it seems, but done on TV for your benefit.

I don't live in your world wink

I'm not going to ignore what I know about people just because I saw something on TV... haha; the glowing box has very little power over me these days.

It was pretty clear to me, as well. And I did know about the irrelevant Dem comments. Some people just can't see the forest because the imaginary trees get in the way.

There were several public comments made by Flynn and Flynn Jr. On video and via Twitter related to "pizzagate" and Hillary.

Flynn got fired in retaliation for that (or so it appears, if you pay attention to all the context).

Flynn JR:


Flynn Jr was fired off the Trump Transition team for Pizzagate:
[www.youtube.com]



Flynn Sr was doing the same thing:



So seriously... not about Pizzagate at all, even though his son was fired a couple of months ago for that... and the tweets..

I'm a bit at a loss here, seems obvious to me... no one else?

Has the critical thinking skill completely been lost?

I gotta ask: don't you guys get tired of talking about Trump?

I try to avoid watching or listening to him, or talking about him (except now of course) because I hate him so damned much. Dude is hateful and crazy and that's all I have to say.

hateful and crazy..

we must be watching different people; that's an excellent way to marginalize someone and their ideas. Also a very attractive way to our brains since it's a "short cut" and allows you to think less (something our brains are always after).

But is it correct, or a beneficial method?

No, I think not on both accounts.

Trump is not hateful, nor crazy... if that were the case then there would be a LOT more billionaires out there.

He maybe in over his head,, he's spending all his time trying to fulfill campaign promises for the 26% of the population that voted him, completely ignoring the 24% that hate him and the 47% that did not vote.

I think that's very gallant of him, but a mistake; if he doesn't consolidate his power-base in Washington he will go the way of Nixon.

Hateful and crazy is based on the little bit I see and hear, and when I do, he appears hateful and crazy so I don't watch him anymore. Has nothing to do with agreeing with my opinions.
