Those who object to overt racism from your Dear Leader are snowflakes, eh? If that's what you believe, you're as vile as disgusting as Lying Donnie Dotard is.

Lol!

"Lying Donnie Dotard"

How much longer are these pseudonyms going to get?

We are in danger of using up all of Grumpy's space!

No one listens to the boy who cried wolf, he's lied too many times in the past.


2/20/11 Durbin lies on Fox- "Social security does not add one penny to the deficit"

11/6/12
Durbin claims during the Senate Appropriations Commitee’s hearing on the defense budget, are patently false. No, the base defense budget had not grown by 73% since “the last time we were in balance” (that would be FY2001); domestic discretionary spending had not remained “essentially the same”; and entitlements had not grown by a mere “37%”. In fact, since FY2001, the core defense budget had grown by only 25.7%, while entitlements had grown, in constant FY2005 dollars, by 61.28% and domestic discretionary spending had grown by 43% – a far cry from the virtually no growth that Durbin claimed. (The source: OMB Historical Table #8.2.) As of FY2012, the OMB estimated that entitlements had grown by $809 bn since FY2001, i.e. by 74%.

Sept. 2013, Durbin, speaking on the Senate floor-
“I’ve had a situation in my family — a child — who had serious physical problems, who could not have qualified but for group health insurance available to me as a member of Congress,” Durbin said in response to a pointed question to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.
“If I had gone on the open market to buy a policy I’m not sure I could have bought one for my family to cover my child,” said Durbin, who was first elected to Congress in 1982 when his Christine was fourteen.
State law addressed the problem of individuals in the open market suffering from preexisting conditions. In 1987, Illinois passed the Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan (CHIP, which covered any Illinoisan who could not “obtain individual coverage from private insurance companies because of medical conditions.” Thirty-five other states have similar programs, including Maryland, where Christine ultimately settled.
He wasn't sure about the open market because he's never had to deal with it. He's had cushy gov health coverage for decades.
Sent his daughter to Children's Memorial Hospital, one of the top pediatric facilities in the country. And it damn well should be one of the best, it received the most federal earmarks of any hospital in the country, thanks to Durbin and Obama.

2/5/14 Durbin on Meet the Press w Bob Scheiffer-
“Bob, let’s look at the bottom line. The bottom line is this. Ten million Americans have health insurance today who would not have had it without the Affordable Care Act–10 million.”
“And we can also say this. It is going to reduce the deficit more than we thought it would. We were seeing a decline in the growth of the cost of health care, exactly our goal in passing this original legislation."
"I’m finding people, as I go across Illinois, who, for the first time in their lives, have an opportunity for affordable health insurance for their families. Now, there are many republicans who are wishing that this fails, hoping they can find any shred of evidence against it. But we had a bad rollout. Let’s concede that point. Since then, we are gaining steam. And I think, ultimately, we’re going to find you can’t go back. You have to extend the health insurance protection to the 25 million, 30 million Americans who will ultimately have it, and we’ll be a better nation for it."
Washington Post gives him 4 Pinocchio for this one.

June 2014, Durbin lies to Chicago Tribune editorial board re communications with the IRS about targeting conservative groups.

10/20/14 Durbin posts to Facebook-
"Many Republicans searching for something to say in defense of the disastrous shutdown strategy will say President Obama just doesn’t try hard enough to communicate with Republicans. But in a “negotiation” meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told the president: “I cannot even stand to look at you.”
What are the chances of an honest conversation with someone who has just said something so disrespectful?"
Obama press sec. Jay Carney stated this was a lie-
“I looked into this and spoke with somebody who was in that meeting and it did not happen,” Carney told the media.

First question is, who created these shitholes?
Second question is, were the European settlers white?
Yes, race is the reason they are shitholes and let's blame the Spanish, French, British, Dutch; pretty much all of white Europe.

Buffalo Soldier by Bob Marley is a great song.

Or, maybe its the left - or folks like you - who immediately spin racism into a perfectly legitimate question to gain perceived political leverage. Certainly the language used could have been better, but the idea of an immigration system based on merit is employed by other countries without casting those systems as racist.

In his first 10 months in office, he has told 103 separate untruths, many of them repeatedly. Obama told 18 over his entire eight-year tenure. That’s an average of about two a year for Obama and about 124 a year for Trump.
Lying Donnie Dotard fits. And all you can scrape out is four of five lies by an obscure Durbin? And please check out the graphics in this link.
