  • ddowns24 Post author

    This is news? President referenced old or misguided projections. Sounds like a Staff mistake, that he tried to cover for, due to insane and constant scrutiny from MSM, re: every syllable he says. What’s the accusation here? Was he trying to impact property values, to somehow benefit his own properties (for a day)? ….Please!

  • Vendicar Kahn Post author

    Trump didn't notice that the cone progresses from a small circle to a large one so he drew a smaller one just large enough to reach Alabama.

    The fact that he didn't notice the progression is evidence of mental illness.

    Very strong evidence.

    I work as a teacher. I have a system with my grade 1 students where if they are well-behaved or give me a really good answer to a question, I draw a smiley face in their notebook. 3 smiley faces and they get a candy. I always know when they've write in their own smiley faces and just cross them out and tell them to get lost. Their forgeries are ACTUALLY better than this. They actually have the sense to try and mark it in pencil if I used pencil or marker (the right colour of marker) if I did it in marker. Simply astonishing….

  • Denny Hill Post author

    I'm not a political person at all but I swear every one should stop all this bs with trump about the sharpie marker and DORIAN AND ALABAMA CRAP. I MEAN SMH , IF THEY GOT ALL THIS TIME ON THERE HANDS HELP THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY THE STORM. JUDGE NOT THAT YE MAY NOT BE JUDGED.. Matthew 7:1
    And stop stiring the pot , if you have no intentions of licking the spoon ,.
    I am not political at all but I commend #trump for not backing down on any level . everyone wants to dispute who's right and who's wrong whose in charge WHO isn't Lord and then wonder why our country is the way it is … STOP THE USELESS BULL ALREADY AGREE TO DISAGREE IF YOU MUST HELP YOUR NEIGHBOR AND IF YOU WONT THEN CARRY THE WEIGHT OF YOU AND YOURS AND YOUR MOUTH SHUT AND STAY OUT OF THE WAY OF THE REST OF US WHO ARE TRYING TO GET IN THE LINE THATS FORMING…

    Strange that CNN & MSNBC didn't accused Trump of having put fire on Amazon Forest so far. Only focus on Trump's any single words. KOPEL was right saying to Brian Stelter. CNN would be in the toilet without Donald Trump. CNN SICK PEOPLES.

  • ferenzpushkash Post author

    Educate yourself folks, before criticizing Trump on this issue. Get online and check out the trajectories of historical Hurricanes and Tropical Storms that have hit Alabama. There are a few storms that reached Alabama much like Dorian, from the direction of the Bahamas, after crossing over Florida. Now, we were repeatedly told by meteorologists that Dorian's path was very unusual in being stationary over the Bahamas in the way that it was. The predictions about Dorian were not accurate and in fact the bureau said so as the storm was rolling (or, rather, not rolling). Trump was right – there was a possibility that Dorian would have gone through Florida and hit Georgia and Alabama, and Trump may well have been advised about all possibilities – which is just as well. It would not have been the first time this happened to Alabama either. In any case, since when are weather predictions about Hurricanes that accurate? All the scientists admit that prediction accuracy is limited. Not MSNBC of course. But we get it – it's Trump, so anything goes.

  • PorkyPricklyPants Post author

    The left is hoping for a hurricane disaster just so they can accuse Trump of diverting funds from helping people they don't care about.

  • James Musslewhite Post author

    FACT: August 29, 2019 National Hurricane Center maps clearly showed Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama could be at risk. The map can be viewed on this website. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/09/breaking-day-after-trump-tweet-hurricane-center-map-showed-alabama-at-risk-from-dorian-for-tropical-storm-force-winds/

    So Trump was correct and we have Fake News bobble-headed Lemmings grandstanding for 5 days. I would rather have a liar who is actually trying to better America, then all the liars presently engaged in trying to tear it down…

  • WelshWidgetMan2O1O Post author

    This the same clown who LIED about his Iraq helicopter crash, and the same network who just last week allowed Lawrence O'donnell to LIE about Trump having "Russian oligarchs" co-sign loans for him, who, under legal threat, then had to backpedal the very next day and say he was WRONG. The early projections for hurricane Dorian clearly showed the storm crossing Florida into the Gulf of Mexico and this was just one of the POSSIBLE tracks the storm could have made.

  • Farwalker2u Post author

    This chart is dated August 29, 2019. At that time a least one of the fifteen spaghetti models did in fact predict a path into Alabama. Brian Williams is wrong again.

If you weren't so ignorant, you could have easily checked and not looked like deranged lunatics, I'm in Alabama and it was on all the news ! Of course, you wont  change your comments, you will double down and continue to look like deranged lunatics, because it is what comes naturally for all you liberal nut jobs !

The US only asked him to save Japan(2011) and Nepal (2014). The President of Iraq earned for 1990-2008 billion dollars.The US and allies will profit.200 billion dollars later.Profit in 2011 and 2014 in advance. H. Saddam refused.The US executed the leader of IRAQ.The oligarchs bathing space.Will receive excess profit.People then work.Space did not receive $ 200 billion.New satellites and missiles in 2011-2014.

    Hurricane Dorian was steered stalled and strengthened by a chemical process similar to seeding clouds to produce rain i'm working on understanding the process fully the concern came as no surprise mar a largo must be spared a direct hit from a Cat 5 hurricane which has the intensity of a E3 tornado imagine that well you don't have to with the russians deliberately nuking the north pole to create a northwest passage the earth responds with severe weather to try and restore balance.

  • Benjamin R Post author

    Trump speculates assumes and has an opinion of where it will hit. He was wrong….AND??? Every main stream media speculates has opinions and assumptions and are wrong 95% of the time. You look like a fool main stream media for making this even a story. Man the F#ck up and quit being such pu$$ies and saying look look Trump was wrong. You're wrong every day on everything. Thats why Trumps President and will be for 4 more years. Citizens like me see right through you and your agenda.

  • Aidskranker Nafri 67 Post author

    I rly dont get your exitement.
    Even if the forecast was false (which most forecasts are in fact) it was a better move than telling alabama citizens, everything was ok and then hurricane striking them.
    You make a great story out of a minor false forecast to make trump look bad.. why dont you focus on real news?

  • smitha james Post author

    What is the problem if President was concerned about Alabama and want to take any proactive action..? Where is the problem ?

  • Edward Patschureck Post author

    What a waste of time. How Ironic that such a disgraced liar would pounce on an innocent warning from the POTUS.

    You must really be desperate to try to make the president look bad if you're using something like this. Jealousy leads to such conduct.

    You know very well that the early spaghetti Maps showed that hurricane going all over the place and some of them even showed penetration into yes Alabama's Southeast corner…

    The media has not doing its job. If they had read THE FIFTH RISK it would be clear that Trump took the profesions out of NOA and gave the agency to people with no scientific knowlege and who use the years date acumulated at taxpayer expense for comercial purposes. That is why the craven cowards at NOA wrote that shameful letter backing a lie told by a man who doesn't know the geography of the country he is supposed to make great again.

  • The Yeti Post author

    MSNBC/CNN FAKE NEWS . Even NOAA said that Alabama was included but don't let facts get in the way of your propaganda campaign FAKE NEWS

  • Mark Jones Post author

    What OUR President said was a reasonable inference going by the model supplied by NOAA. If I lived in the coastal area of Alabama I would hope that I would get an early warning about the possibility a hurricane could be headed my way, so that I would keep a closer eye it. If you looked at any of the early models, there was even one that showed that Dorian might even go south of Miami. Did it go that way, no. So what is the problem with what OUR President did to send a warning to stay safe. Wake up people, you can't have it both ways in the media.
