Stop the steal

"I covered my plates because they're taking pictures," said one voter, identified as Gerald. "This is what we've come to in America. They call themselves patriots. Really? The guy standing over there has his face covered and he's armed. What's that tell you? They don't want you to vote."

The group running most of the ballot box watching is called Clean Elections USA — and their founder, Melody Jennings, cites a debunked conspiracy theory film "2,000 Mules" as the motivation for monitoring voters.

"The effects of election conspiracy theories already on full display here in the swing state of Arizona," said O'Sullivan. "Armed men stalking voter drop boxes and people covering identities as they go to vote," said O'Sullivan. "Central to all of this is the movie '2,000 Mules.' Trump even hosted a screening of it at Mar-a-Lago. The movie falsely claims that so-called mules are casting hundreds or thousands of votes at drop boxes ... the people we're seeing are not mules, they are real voters who are now afraid."

"I could never come down here alone. I couldn't do it myself," said another voter, identified as Kelly Wilson. Her companion agreed: "It's just flat-out insane. It's voter intimidation."

"I'm an American first," he told O'Sullivan. "It's funny. I voted a lot of times. I'm in my 60s and this is the first time an election has ever been 'stolen'. Come on."

This isn't how to make america great again. It was never like this in the past.

Everything is about being strong, dumb, and cruel. Watch the entire 3 mins. It’s a pretty epic segment.

They are wrong about the snowflake thing, but the most egregious thing is pretending that cats are good for anything at all. Everyone knows they are evil biological mind-control machines that make people stupid. Of course this is why our cat loves me, it's evil nature is drawn to the darkness of my soul. Plus it loving me more than my wife is its way of getting back at her for loving it. It is a vicious evil cycle. Cats are evil.

I bet this meeting will be denounced widely by all Republican leaders in Congress, Republican media, and all of the 2024 hopefuls even if it means irritating Trump because fascism and anti-Semitism is awful and the GOP wouldn’t want to be associated with fascists and whites supremacists…

How is this a repost when this story came out yesterday? The tweets above provided context for who Nick Fuentes is and the tweets from Trump come from Truth Social when he attempted to defend himself yesterday. I assumed many on here had heard about this story. And the zero pushback from the GOP (unless you count former congresspeople Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger) is interesting.




Or is it that you don’t see Trump, the GOP frontrunner for 2024, meeting the other night with two white supremacists, one of which runs a group of young people, to be newsworthy? If so, why?

I bet Ron DeSantis will for sure denounce this white supremacist. Because he surely wouldn’t want their vote, right??? DeDantis most certainly doesn’t want to be associated by Fuentes.

Trump said in a statement to Axios: "Kanye West very much wanted to visit Mar-a-Lago. Our dinner meeting was intended to be Kanye and me only, but he arrived with a guest whom I had never met and knew nothing about."

Behind the scenes: A source familiar with the dinner conversation told Axios that Trump "seemed very taken" with Fuentes — impressed that the 24-year-old was able to rattle off statistics and recall speeches dating back to his 2016 campaign.

  • Paraphrasing the conversation, the source said Fuentes told the president he preferred him to be "authentic," and that Trump seemed scripted and unlike himself during his recent 2024 campaign announcement speech.
Trump responded: "You like it better when I just speak off the cuff," the source said.

  • Fuentes replied that he did, calling Trump an "amazing" president when he was unrestrained.
  • "There was a lot of fawning back and forth," the source added.
  • During the conversation, Fuentes said he represented a side of Trump's base that was disappointed with his newly cautious approach — especially with what some far-right activists view as a lack of support for those charged in the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.
    • Trump didn't disagree with Fuentes — but said he has advisers who want him to read off teleprompters and be more "presidential."
    • Fuentes told Trump that he would crush potential 2024 Republican rivals in a primary, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Trump asked for Fuentes' opinion on other candidates as well.
  • Trump at one point turned to Ye and said: "I really like this guy. He gets me," according to the source.
    • The source added: "I don't believe the president knew who the hell [Fuentes] was."
