Zinke blames ‘environmental radicals’ for deadly California fires – TheHill

The environmental radical that Ryan zinke should be looking at is the one that looks back at him in the mirror. this man has made a travesty of the position of Secretary of the interior. He has systematically taking away National Park Land from the people for the use of the oil companies. He thinks he is a dictator. He actually flies a flag over the department of the interior when he’s in the office. Does he think he’s a queen of England? He wrote on a horse on his first day into his job as the Secretary of the interior, does he think he’s a cowboy oh wait. This man along with so many others in this Administration are the swamp creatures on nuclear flu fuel and should no longer be in the offices that they hold because they are not doing the will of the people.

We have one Earth and this man doesn’t give a damn all he cares about is how much money he can get from special interest. Shame on him and this Administration.

Michelle Obama reveals she snuck out of White House to celebrate gay marriage ruling – NBC News

I cannot express in words how much I miss the Obamas in the White House.

As a gay American when we got the right to get married it was one of the happiest days I’ve ever had. It’s bittersweet for me, I’ll be 65 in April and my chances of getting married are very low. People ask me why I never had children, in the years that I would have wanted to adopt a child it was illegal for me to do so. It’s amazing how a government can change your life. I don’t regret anything but I’ve got to be honest to say that it would have been nice to have more of a family around me. I live alone in Los Angeles and my closest relative his in France.

bravo to Michelle Obama for being so open in her book. I ordered you to buy it.

Is the economy just on a ‘sugar high’ set to wear off by 2020? – NBC News

When the affordable Care act was being crafted into a law that has made millions and millions of people happy the Republicans insisted on calling it Obamacare. Now that it is a success they seem to be wanting to go back to the ACA.

Well here’s my prediction in 2018: by the timewe vote in 2020 for president will be right in the middle of the Trump Recession. Others would like to call it something else but I finally think we should call it what it is the Trump Recession.

Look, I don’t wish a recession upon our country and our world anymore and the next guy. But when everything is inflated, like the price of real estate and the stock market then there tends to be a crush. and I think the crash is going to be coming sooner than later. And there will only be one person to blame for it Donald Trump. He inherited a wonderful economy from President Obama and he squandered it just as he squandered any hope in bringing our country together.

Trump’s late-election rallies weren’t the boon the White House insists they were – The Washington Post

The angry mob of white older people coming to Trump rallies are not sustainable. Regardless of how the election went last week white older people as your base a party is not sustainable. The Democrats have the youth behind them and that’s a headwind for the Republicans. you know they have been saying that the youth both would not be that great and yet they voted. they understand the issues and are well informed and want to make sure that this country is a good place for all and not just for the rich.

Michael Avenatti arrested by LAPD on suspicion of domestic violence – Los Angeles Times

I was a fan of Michael avenatti until he screwed up the Supreme Court confirmation process and broth someone who would not at the end of the day truly be a victim of Brett Kavanaugh. I truly believe that he made professor Ford’s testimony have less weight because of the fact that was a false accuser. Whether or not he’s guilty of this is not for me to decide

A banner year for LGBT candidates got even stronger with Kyrsten Sinema’s Senate win – The Washington Post

There are a lot of great organizations out there but there’s one that stands out to me in the LGBT political community. It’s the victory fund. The victory fund rooms people for public office. It’s not just a matter of wanting to run its knowing how to run for public office that’s a key to getting elected. I have a funny story about the victory fund. When I was living in Miami I was the chair of a fundraiser for the victory funds. They’re director of the elephant who was their first was a young guy and he put out 1000 posters on South Beach saying that named Alien Berrebi instead of Alain Berrebi. My friends left about that for months afterwards. But it was a great fundraiser and I hoped that I helped in a little way back then.

It’s wonderful to see the progress that the lgbtq community has had and I look forward to even more representation.

Special counsel witness says he expects to be charged in Mueller probe – ABC News

I’m not sure if it’s funny or disturbing that info wars, the right wing fake news organization, would have a Washington bureau chief. In any case it seems that the man is going to be indicted by special counsel Mueller and that’s good. I’m sure the far right is going to say that they’re being Target it and I’ve noticed that those who have appeared in front of either the grand jury or the FBI in questions regarding the Russia probe have said that they may be indicted. But it also is strange that the only ones that ever say that are people like Rodger Stone. I think they want to be invited, I think they are looking for the publicity.

Why would one go out into the public Arena and say they think they’re going to be indicted? Are they got guilty?

After NRA Mocks Doctors, Physicians Reply: ‘This Is Our Lane’ – NPR

I’ll be honest, I have been overloaded with political stuff on television. So I buried myself into British shows on Netflix. The ones I watch have a common theme there are murders and they are solved at the end of the show. You never see the gruesome act just the end result. The shows I’ve been watching our murders in paradise and midsomer murders. I say all this because one thing that has struck me after watching it seems no one has handguns the UK. Even the police. It’s fun watching police chase after people because they can’t shoot at them. How refreshing.

Now to the NRA, the reason for this post. The NRA has done everything in his power to make sure that every American has access to multiple guns. They don’t care how many bullet holes it’s hairs into people’s bodies, the bottom line comes first. The NRA is no longer group of people who are hunters and sportsman. They become a political branch of the GOP. I think. Russia what country was no guns, why would the NRA be there? Do you really think that Putin wants guns and every household? No.

Who have told you that already that they are a cause for the bloodshed in this country. Doctors need to repair the wounds caused by these terrible weapons. Honestly the shootings that we’ve seen of late had been done with weapons of mass destruction.

NRA I don’t suggest you attack doctors, they do have the Hippocratic oath but…

The true terrorists are the NRA.

Democrat unseats Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in Orange County House district – LA Times

The witch is Dead!

Look, anyone who’s been here before knows I’m a Democrat and proud of it. But there are so so few Republicans that I despised more then Dana rohrabacher. His love of everything Russia and his corruption goes unchallenged by this GOP and by this president.

Well in January say goodbye representative Rohrabacher to your house seat and perhaps you may be able to get a job in Putin’s Russia.

Bob Woodward Reveals What Donald Trump Trait Gave Him ‘A Chill’ – HuffPost

Let’s be honest, we have an incompetent in the White House.

He doesn’t understand government or its need to exist.

He doesn’t understand America’s place in the world or why we need to maintain it.

He doesn’t understand that this is one World with one ecology and we are at the biggest wrecker of the environment and we need to address that but again he doesn’t understand.

He doesn’t seem to have a big grasp of anything other than his ego.

So when you hear veteran journalist like Bob Woodward who covered nine presidents say that he was shocked by something that the Tangerine nightmare said you need to listen. I watched an interview on Bill Maher and it’s telling that even Bob Woodward has temptations about where our country is going under the leadership of this man.

On the same program, Bret Stephens, who used to work for the Wall Street journal now who works for the New York Times and is no longer Republican was on. I remember the days that I would yell at the TV when Brett Stevens was on but Trump has made those go away. Bret Stephens openly said that he is worried that on January 20th 2021 we’re not going to see an orderly exit from the White House if Trump is voted out. I agree with him. And that’s chilling.
