What does this have to do with my free stuff?
What does this have to do with Trump being a terrible terrible big meany pants racist? And "unfit" to be president.

Oh yeah, and all the "smrt" newspaper editors support Hillary and the current administration. No need to Palin that, as the reasons are self evident.
But why is Stefanik supporting Trump??? She owes us an answer !!!

It has been blatantly obvious for quite some time that if his lips are moving, he is lying.....

Obama has been lying since the day we elected him. But the dannies don't care. It's George Bush's fault, or Eisenhower, or was it Bush 41? Who cares. Lying isn't much of big deal to heroes. Not when the lying party is his owner, as it were, and as it always will be.

Hello Danny, Spin this

in reality:

Late on Thursday, the Associated Press published a pretty inflammatory piece claiming that the US paid a lot of cash to Iran in exchange for the release of several detained American citizens. "US says $400 [million] payment was contingent on release of prisoners," blared the headline. Sure sounds a lot like a ransom, right?

Wrong. The US did not pay Iran a ransom, despite the insistence of a number of leading conservatives like Paul Ryan and Donald Trump.

The AP story is actually describing a payment that President Obama announced back in January. What’s more, the payment was the result of an agreed settlement to a 35-year case in international court — according to the AP's own reporting. It had nothing to do with any "hostage" payments.

The money aspect of that deal was already in place -- getting the detainees released was leverage --- deal with it. Imagine it were you.

Spin it either way anyone wants, when you elect leaders you elect their judgment. Although I personally don't agree much with the extreme party based opinions of the Grahams, this Danny Francis and others often on here, personally, I have no issues with this. We don't know everything, it's impossible to. And, the President did what he thought he had to do, very similarly to Bush going in to get Saddam. I am not an Obama guy, but, this issue in my view was well planned out and the end result was human lives being saved. If only Hillary would have done the same thing in Benghazi.

Its ransom money, no how you look at this. For crying out loud, open your eyes. You give me money, I give your people back. What is it? Why didn't you give the money in January, when announced?

You have to keep in mind, that we live with a corrupt media, that lives in the world of opposite-day. Where they report that a security guard pointing a gun at swimmers and demanding money is not a robbery...because, well because, the robber claims the money was owed.

In a similar MO, Iran kidnapped our citizens and refused to release those prisoner until Obama paid them in the middle of the night in cash. In the minds of golf course heroes, liberal arts teachers and editors, that's not ransom, its just settling a debt. To everyone else, its ransom.
