My meanderings about politics, LGBTQI COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
In one of the best keynote speeches ever, former Texas Governor Ann Richards said some things which war ain’t at George HW Bush but still live the test of times today. Just replace poor George with poor Donny:
This was a turning point in his re-election and other than his gaffs at the grocery store where he had seen the laser check out readers for the first time he made himself look completely out of touch.
poor Donnie, worried that his Twitter account is going down. Yes his Twitter account is going down because there is a movement to unfollow him. I have actually blocked him and when I need to reach out to him via Twitter I use the @POTUS45 account.
I wonder if they’re Twitter CEO also spoke to him about the fact that he uses targeted harassment of individuals which violates the basic tenets of the community of Twitter. sure Dempsey doesn’t want him to stop tweeting because it’s a source of revenue and that makes me sick.
I have left Facebook, Instagram and now only have a presence on Twitter and linkedin. I don’t know how much longer I’ll be on Twitter. These places are becoming cesspools of hatred.
Let us not forget who we’re dealing with here. This is the guy who is friends with the guy that murdered an American journalist and then cut him up into pieces. have we ever heard a single disparaging remark about Muhammad Bin Salman from the Trump White House?
My favorite is watching Secretary of State pompeo testifying all regarding the Jared Kushner Middle East peace plan.when asked when we will see this peace plan he refused to give a timeframe and said it could take as long as 10 years. I’m hoping in 10 years we don’t hear Trump’s name everyday because he’ll be in jail with his son-in-law.
How convenient that he’s pooping the fact that Russians make sure that his father-in-law got into the White House. Russia if you’re listening please look into Jared kushner’s emails, as if they would ever since they have their guy in the White House and Putin is so happy.
The last time we had a Jared this famous it didn’t end well, ask Subway sandwiches.
I’m not sure if we are supposed to be feeling sorry for Roger Stone. do you know how many lower-income individuals are languishing in jails across our country because they could not come up with $10,000 in bail money let alone 250,000. So no I don’t feel sorry for Roger Stone who in my opinion has never done an honest day’s work. Putting on loud outfits and weird high where does not constitute a days of work to me. Having a group of fascists as my so-called security makes me want to throw up on him. I agree with those in the community of Richmond that do not want him at a strip club cocking his brand of hatred.
I think the gag order by judge Amy Berman Jackson was quite clear and she has been bending over backwards for this man. I think that she is playing the long game and is going to hit him, bigley to use a term by his favorite politician, when it comes to sentencing. Anyway I hope so.
What some people will do for just a little bit of attention. Let’s not forget this is the same Romney who went begging for the job of Secretary of State and was made to look like a fool by the current occupant of the White House.
you could tell him this picture that Trump was going to screw with Romney. You would think that Romney would become a thorn in Trump’s side. Sure he makes these kind of statements that he is shocked at his actions but he vote with Trump even when it means voting to lift sanctions against Russian oligarchs.
Romney is no Patriot he is an opportunist.
A true patriot would say that he would go along with the articles of impeachment that are so so needed against this criminal president.
It must feel like they were just told there was no Santa Claus. PizzaGate, child slave trade markets, all the other idiotic things that they came up with in their cult-like beliefs are all going down the drain.
I hope the sting they are feeling today will last for the next 18 months and they don’t go out and vote for Trump. It’s quite clear now that the dust has settled and smart people have read them all a report or what we can see of it that’s Trump was not indicted or brought up on charges because of the Justice department’s weird regulation that a president cannot be indicted while in office. Robert Mueller made it quite clear and its final pages that when or if the Congress decides to impeach Trump then criminal prosecution can follow because statute of limitations would not be running out at that point.
I’m a little disappointed and not hearing from Nancy Pelosi today. I know she’s in Europe but I believe there is these newfangled things called telephones or Internet, television camerasshe is an effective leader of the democratic party until we have a nominee and we needed to hear from her. That being sent I think the Democrats have the wind in their backs now as I’ve said so many times before Republicans win by cheating did the Democrats know how to lose better than anybody else on the planet.
At least the night as I lay my head on the pillow I go to sleep knowing that there is a larger crook in the white house then even Richard Nixon was. Richard Nixon made the mistake of recording his crimes something that Trump did not do. I don’t think the shoes of all dropped. Mother farmed out so much of the work that did not involve Russia or collusion and the difference offices of the Department of Justice across the country will follow suit as well as the FBI. This is not over.
Yes, I am a partisan Democrat and very proud of that. When my dad came to this country he saw which side was good and talk me the same.
Republicans win because they cheat. Democrats lose because they’re good at it.
I have watched a litany of amazing people who ran for president and did not win because Republicans cheat
Let’s start with Nixon, Hubert Humphrey was the vice president under Lyndon Baines Johnson and would have been a wonderful president of the United States but Nixon had to cheat it’s called Watergate.
George McGovern who ran in 1972 and who received my first vote in a presidential election. He ran against Nixon cheats.
After the Fall From Grace that Nixon suffered Gerald Ford immediately pardon him when he became president. A move I’m sure that Mike Pence would emulate in a second if he got to be president. Jimmy Carter 1 in 1976 when the United States needed a change from all of this cheating.
But never fear Ronald Reagan came to the scene and went and negotiated behind Jimmy Carter’s back to release the Iranian hostages. he made Jimmy Carter look weak and one of the best presidents we ever had lost in his re-election bid. You all know Jimmy Carter has one of the most amazing ex-presidents who even had his current age is building homes for the needy.
Al Gore won the election against George W Bush, but the Republicans cheat and because of the mess that the State of Florida is we got the wrong man to be president and we got to Wars that we still are in because of that. Think about what an Al Gore presidency would have done for our planet, instead of making videos he would have been able to actually make policy that would have reversed climate change in time for all of what’s happening right now not to have happened.
In 2004 John Kerry a military hero was Swift boated by the cheating Republicans and made to look like a deserter. This is coming from a president who had never done anything except to avoid military service. George W Bush came from a family of military service but he had nothing to do with it.
They try to cheat against President Obama but he was good and he had moderately honorable opponents.
Which takes us to present day and the cheater in Chief who currently occupies the White House. He colluded with Russians, wikileak, and anyone else he could get to cheat himself into the White House.
so it’s not surprising that tomorrow when the Mueller report comes out they would have already cheated. They are going to try to eclipse the Mueller Report with news coverage of their own but the American people are smarter than that and I think they’re going to see through it.
Always remember Republicans win because they cheat.
Attorney General William Barr should be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life because he can look at history books and see. Attorney General Mitchell went to jail for what he did for Nixon during Watergate. May William Barr suffer the same fate.
Presidential candidate and mayor Pete Buttigieg said it best when he called out Mike Pence on his twisted form of Christianity. Look I’m not a Christian I was raised Jewish and right now I’m kind of nothing. I look in religion and I don’t see that it’s done very much good to the world other than cause Wars and ferment hatred. Sure there has been good from religion but it’s always with a secondary motive to bring people into the fold.
Mike Pence is the worst kind of Christian. Mike Pence thinks that people are not equal because he doesn’t want them to be. This is the Mike Pence who was in charge of the Trump transition and did not notice all the Russians running around. Come on Mike Pence knew everything was going on and never said anything because he’s an opportunist. if Christ were back on this Earth he would have Mike Pence excommunicated because Mike Pence is a bad man and he needs to be called out for that.
It’s great seeing an Evangelical college and its professors coming out against his speaking there. we all see Indiana has this homo genius kind of place where everyone hates gays. Peter Buttigieg came out as gay in the middle of an election and one by 80% of the vote.
Mike Pence is not part of the mainstream and Mike Pence is culpable for all of the inhumanity of this Administration. Locking up children in cages, separating parents from their kids, banning transgenders in the military, the lies, sleeping with pornstars, paying off those pornstars and the list goes on and on. I’m not going to say the name of thepresent occupant of the white house because he craves that.
It’s time we all shun him the first ones that should are the msnbc’s of the world because they claim to be a liberal voice and yet each time this man spews out his hatred they are right there trying to get the ratings.
Wow, the Network that has made its claim to fame over the moniker fake news actually had fake news on its own broadcast just like it does every day. This one was so blatant that they had to come out and say “we’re sorry”. In actuality the graphic that showed Trump’s approval rating at 55% was Trump’s disapproval rating. His actual approval rating is steady at 43% even though Attorney General Barr put out a false summary vindicating Trump. The Mueller team was quick and explaining that they’d never vindicated Trump or said that he was not guilty of anything and yet this Roy Cohn Attorney General was lying through his teeth to the American people.
sure we elected Trump not by a majority of the votes but through a stupid system called The electoral college. The American people may have made that mistake but they see what’s happening and we’ll vote this man out of office unless the Republicans cheat like they always do
Our country is slowly becoming less and less democratic. That’s democratic with a small d.
With the electoral college now negating votes so that the majority no longer can elect a president especially if he’s or she is a Democrat. the last two Republican presidents were not elected by a majority of the American people would rather by the electoral college.
So what are we to do? Vote with our dollars. It’s the only power we have left and it’s limited. There are some brands that are almost impossible to get around but they seem to be the ones who jumped ship from Tucker Carlson early on.
I say boycott. I remember the first time that’s an organized boycott in the United States worked in my memory. it was the grape boycott organized by Cesar Chavez. We stopped buying grapes and it forced grape producers to start paying not a living wage but at least a better wage than they had been.
So I hope that every advertiser that is not a Noah Museum or some erectile dysfunction drug pulls their advertising from Tucker Carlson and from all of the fox programming that promotes hate and distrust of others.

Although Michael Cohen has never had a job in the white house because of the weird nature of trumps businesses he is as close to John Dean of Watergate as we can come to today.
John Dean is absolutely correct in his assessment of the current occupant of the White House’s ability to read books or anything for that matter. He seems to have a problem with even a teleprompter. So to think that he would read 400 pages of what must be for the most part of very dry document, I don’t think so.
Trump now claims that he could read the report anytime he wanted to because he’s President. That may be true but it’s 400 pages!honestly I think the four pages of Pulp fiction that attorney general Barr put out 3 weeks ago is even too long for this President. He would need the cliff notes of the bar four-page memo and even at that I don’t think he’d have the attention span to read it all.
It’s amazing now that Barr has told him what is in the report, Trump no longer thinks we should see it. I think that may be a bit suspicious and I’m not alone. He didn’t get a single bump up in the polls after his fake Victory lap that he did prior to us finding out more about the Mueller report. I don’t know when it will come out but it will come out before the election. Trump thinks he has an ace in the Supreme Court. He did not appoint chief justice Roberts who does not want to make the Supreme Court a political tool of the executive branch. So I think that chief justice Roberts is going to do the right thing. If he votes with the for liberals then we will see the report and I truly believe that Congress is going to expedite this all the way up to the Supreme Court as quickly as possible. It’s important for the American people to find out everything there is to know about the shenanigans during the 2016 election so they can make an informed decision in 2020.

Dean mocked Donald Trump in a tweet on Saturday, asking when was the last time the president read anything near 400 pages long. PHOTO: MARK WILSON/GETTY IMAGES
