Pete Buttigieg wants ‘intergenerational justice.’ What’s that? – NBC News

The Republicans are all up in arms about the freshman members of Congress. sure their views are different but of course they’re also younger and I have had a different life experience than somebody who’s been in Congress for the last 50 years.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg is talking long-term issues. Weighing these issues on how they are going to mature in the future. We seem to make our decisions based on a one-year budget. The best our government can do is a two-year farm Bill. It’s time we think a little bit further down the line then one or two years. China thinks in decades and has a plan mapped out for its economy and its people. Look I’m not talking about the dogmatic five-year plans of the Soviet Union.I’m talking about actual planning on how and why we want our economy to grow. Infrastructure should be our number one goal and this country. spending money on infrastructure does not balloon the debt. Spending money on infrastructure actually lowers the debt. The Republicans know that but they want us to be unhappy with the government so not fixing infrastructure is the best way of doing that.

Mayor Peter Buttigieg has some fresh ideas and he deserves to be on the stage when we have the debates in June.

Trump administration responsible for even more separated children, judge rules – NBC News

The judge makes it quite clear. The United States of America is failing at its minimum duty of keeping its citizens and those who reside within its borders safe.

I keep returning to two and a half years ago when life was normal and we didn’t have a man in the White House who has absolutely no humanity, empathy or any of the other human traits that would be a minimum requirement for the presidency of the United States. And yet here we are.

I am very much a part of the never Bernie movement on social media. Bernie Sanders chipped away at Hillary Clinton during the primaries and was only a half-hearted supporter after she won the nomination. That did not stop him from requiring her to spend over $250,000 on private jets for him and his wife. Weird that a man of the people wants private jets.

I blame Bernie Sanders for what we’re dealing with right now and I will do everything in my power to make sure he is not the nominee of the Democratic Party.I truly believe the Democrats should nominate a Democrat any Democrat except for Bernie Sanders.

So Senator Sanders I lay the judge’s ruling at your feet as well as Trump’s.

The President just called the CEO of Apple ‘Tim Apple’ – The Verge

Whatever you want to call it, the president’s faculties are starting to look suspicious. He calls his National Security advisor John Bolton Michael Bolton, he missed writes his own wife’s name and calls her Melanie, he couldn’t even remember his chief of staff’s name General John Kelly. So calling the CEO of Apple whose name is pretty well known by everyone in the world Tim Apple is not just insulting but disturbing.

CNN focus group rejects Biden – TheHill

Joe Biden is subject to gaffs.

If elected to Joe Biden would be the oldest president ever.

Joe Biden has problems with understanding who are good people. How youbelieve that Mike Pence is a decent person. Decent people don’t hate. Decent people don’t try to eradicate those who are different from them.

Marc Short, Mike Pence’s incoming Chief of Staff, wrote an op-ed about the AIDS crisis. He trotted out several stupid ideas: that media reports around the AIDS crisis “glorify homosexuals’ repugnant practices”; that the LGBTQ community should remain in the closet and just deal with AIDS quietly on their own, etc, etc, etc.

So I agree with the CNN focus group. Joe Biden your time has come and gone. You are a great VP and that’s all I have to say about it. Let’s let’s a new generation bring their ideas to the table and enough with the old politics.

Inside Robin Roberts’ ‘GMA’ interview with Jussie Smollett – Page Six

I’ll be honest I did not watch the whole interview but the part that I did watch made me think that he was lying through his teeth. I know hindsight is 20/20 but it’s how I felt when I watched it. I thought the tears were phony and his whole storyline made no sense. Just as Robin Roberts said why would you not give up your phone when you are being threatened by two big guys. Your an actor on a successful television program and you can’t afford to get a new phone and it’s worth being injured for it? It didn’t make sense then and now we know it was not true.

Look as a gay man I wanted to believe him. But there were too many holes in the story. one more thing, if someone put a noose around my neck, I certainly would not walk around Chicago with it there and would have figured out a way of hiding it until I got to the hospital. But he did not he wore it all the way to the hospital.

I’ve said this before on this blog. What he did hurts every single person who has been, or will be a target of a hate crime. That’s all I can say at this point without getting angry.

Publisher embroiled in legal battle with Arkansas over law banning Israel boycotts – NBC News

Whenever I see these stories it makes my blood boil. They claim to be pro-israel but in fact they are not. They are being pro-israel in hopes that Israel is destroyed.

Belief in the Rapture, also known as millenarianism or eschatology, has multiple variations, but the core view is that there will an apocalyptic war, Jesus will return, and true Christians will be “raptured” or ascend to heaven, with the rest of the earth’s inhabitants punished. Rapture believers are split about the order of events, but they are united in the belief that only Christians will be saved.

From:

https://qz.com/1270516/jerusalem-embassy-trumps-foreign-policy-looks-like-rapture-christians-plan-to-trigger-apocalypse/

Yes, it seems that so-called Christians, have come up with this voodoo religious kind of scenario where, of course, the Jews must all die so that Christians can find The Rapture and meet up with Jesus. This is racist and anti-Semitic point of Evangelical religion.

So whenever you hear about these laws that seem to be pro-israel, remember they are hoping for the destruction of Israel instead.

Warren takes aim at Pence: He’s not a ‘decent’ man – TheHill

I beg to differ with vice president Joe Biden and his assessment of Mike Pence being a decent guy. Decent people do not point out groups of individuals for hatred and discrimination. under his regime in Indiana the lgbtqi community suffered greatly. He and his wife believe in trying to cure homosexuals from their homosexuality. That is absurd. It’s just a political ploy to give himself more power. He’s not a decent man and anyone who thinks he is is not worthy to be the President of the United States.

And this is something that seems to be forgotten by the media. When Chris Christie was fired from the Trump transition Mike Pence took over. Mike Pence was there and he said nothing about all the Russians that were running around the transition. He said nothing about the hundred and fifty Russians at the inaugural. He said nothing because he knew what was going on and he is just as crooked as Trump.

Trump Slams Russia Investigation And Green New Deal At CPAC – NPR

If it wasn’t CPAC I would think they were all on drugs, on second thought maybe they are.

Between railing about the green New deal and how they’re going to take away our cheeseburgers, SUVs and for God’s sakes airplanes they had a clown come to the show.

Unfortunately the clown is the President of the United States.

They are so outside of the mainstream of American thought that it has become akin to going to a NRA convention. both organizations are outside of the mainstream of American soft, both organizations have people desperately clinging onto power for power’s sake and both organizations should be dismantled.

and there are people out there that are buying this Hook Line & sinker. I’ve got to put in a little word hear about Joe Biden’s comment that Mike Pence is a decent guy. to me it is indicative of the fact that Joe Biden should not be the nominee of the democratic party. Mike Pence is not a decent guy, Mike Pence hates the lgbtqi community and Mike Pence was in charge of the transition. You can tell me that the governor of Indiana comes to Washington and sees all these Russians running around and doesn’t ask a single question. It’s not believable and therefore it can’t be true.

Bernie Sanders 2016: Can He Win the Love of a Party He Scorns? – POLITICO Magazine

It’s funny, how a man who decries is hatred for hypocrisy seems to be a hypocrite.

At this point it seems that Bernie Sanders would be better off running as a Republican. He says he wants to change a party from within well why don’t we go after the party that needs the most changing, the GOP. Let’s face it, the GOP has become morally bankrupt. But why would I say that he is aligned with them?

He was favored by Putin over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic primaries.

He was absent for the key vote in the Senate that allowed for lifting of the sanctions against Russia and its oligarchs.

His love of Russia seems to go back all the way to 1979 when it really was not okay to spend your honeymoon there.

He says that his taxes are in TurboTax and that his wife can’t get to them.

Does any of this sound familiar?

do some good Senator Sanders and run as a republican against Donald Trump. There’s somebody that you can defeat and make a legacy for yourself.

And by the way the article that’s in the link below is from 2016!
