Trump won’t win a border wall shutdown. Look at the polls for proof – Slate

Even for the most ardent Trump supporter the reality is sinking in. He is not they are friends his only friends are Donald j Trump and his immediate family.

Support for the wall is plummeting even amongst his base. Only 45% of white man without a college degree now favor it, a precipitous drop from just a year ago.

The steady drip drip drip of incriminating use about this President is finally going to start taking effect. I saw this during Watergate. It took forever for Republicans to start understanding that they had a lemon in Nixon and now it’s going to be the same with fat Nixon.

The Washington Post: The sad truth about Russian election interference by Robby Mooks

I cannot imagine being Robby Mooks the day after the 2016 election. As Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager and also the youngest campaign manager ever for a national presidential campaign he must have felt incredibly bad. We all felt bad but he has a job of getting her elected.

So this opinion piece is kind of a catharsis for him. He has seen what the special counsel and other prosecutors have put on the table regarding the 2016 election. The Republicans cheated and not only did they cheat but they cheated with Russians. Look I’m used to Republicans cheating, they do so with voter suppression, libertini time for early voting, not allowing elections to be held on a day off for people who work to be able to go and vote without having stress of their jobs, and a host of other things which I’m not going to list. It’s been my experience that Republicans cheat in order to win. Sure Democrats do so as well but not in the grand scale that the Republicans the so-called grand old party uses.

What’s most upsetting to me about the current Republican stand on these election interference is by Russia is that they don’t have a stand. They don’t seem to care. When the shoe will be on the other foot and a country tries to get a democratic candidate into office watch how quickly Republicans will start wanting reforms which will stop this kind of shenanigans. But until then it suits them. They don’t care about our country they care about getting someone else into the Supreme Court so that they can mold the country into their vision of a conservative Utopia.

MBS communicated with adviser during Khashoggi killing – WSJ

He may be a cold-blooded murderer or he may be a cold-blooded murderer, I’m not sure which one it is. but it certainly seems he’s a cold-blooded murderer. As the information comes out you can see how cold and callous this man is. He runs a country that oppresses its people and takes the wealth from the country’s resources and puts it in the hands of the very few at the top of the ladder. Sounds like Utopia in Trump’s mind.

Kansas City Chiefs star Kareem Hunt fired after video shows him pushing, kicking woman – NBC news

What this man has done is inexcusable.

That being said, I think the NFL is inexcusable. we have turned these poor men into gladiators who for a lot of money destroy their brains and live out their lives for the most part in misery. The NFL needs to take ownership of their issues with brain injuries or it should no longer be on network television. If someone wants to pay for it then let it be on pay-per-view but advertisers should stop advertising on NFL games. They might as well be advertising on shows about child molesting.

#betrayal

When you think about this President he has never been a friend of the military. when he was supposed to do his duty in Vietnam he claimed bone spurs but was still able to play on varsity leagues teams in college. He has yet to visit the troops anywhere even the ones he sent to the southern border. His hypocrisy about how much he cares for the veterans and the military is now out in full vision to everyone.

They had promised, just a month ago that they would not do this. But no one can believe anyone in this administration because they are all liars. That’s painting a lot of people with a bold stroke but if you’re going to work in this Administration you have to know that lying is part of your job description.

He is a disgrace to our nation, and to anyone who has died for the privilege of being an American citizen.

Hundreds of vehicles recalled in Kansas after number plates spell out racial slur – The Independent

There are bad people or characters in every country. And sometimes these bad characters flaunt their hatred. Sam Woolf wanted walking in darkness with tiki torches and looking idiotic. Someone wanted it seems with racial slurs on license plates. Are we surprised that this is in Kansas? I’m not. I’m just very sad and embarrassed for the country. By the way this article is by a uk-based newspaper and that makes it even worse. we are the laughing stock of the world thanks to The tangerine nightmare in the White House.

Obama World lovefest for O’Rourke is growing – TheHill

if the Democrats are going to win the White House in 2020 they must be pragmatic. I think that Beto O’Rourke would fit the mold for a lot of those people who would be uncomfortable, maybe because of their racism, with a person of color at the top of the ticket. I would love to see Carmela Harris as president but I fear that she would polarize the right into Ville coming out in voting and Rose. I believe the right learned our lesson with President Obama and have now mobilized as a feverish voting Bloc. They don’t seem to have Trump fatigue, which baffles me. So yes, a young man, a Kennedy like like figure would be a great choice.

Very unscientific polls of Democrats on Twitter have him in the lead, they don’t work checks a lot of boxes for voters. He’s fully bilingual, he is an amazing speaker and most importantly he makes you feel good when you hear him. And he also tells the truth which would be such a refreshing difference from what we have right now in the White House.

During 2004 Democratic Convention I had some friends over watching the keynote speech by then Senator Obama. After we finished I said he’s going to be our president and everyone in the room started chuckling and told me I was delusional. For some reason, I get the same feeling from Beto O’Rourke.

Christine Blasey Ford speaks out: Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser released a rare statement last week – CBS News

And here we are. Brett Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court. Clarence Thomas is on the Supreme Court. I cannot imagine what it’s like for the women on the Supreme Court. Having to face these monsters on a daily basis. I don’t care about people saying that they have moved on. These are terrible people and history will judge them poorly. I’m worried that history will judge us poorly.

Clarence Thomas has had a continued abuse of his position on Supreme Court. He refuses to recuse himself in matters that his wife has financial dealings in. It’s corruption, let’s not mince words here.

I shudder at the decisions that these two men in the future. Brett Kavanaugh was on the record saying that the courts should never Grant new rights to people. The cord was always the place where we looked for Justice and now it’s gone for the foreseeable future.
