My meanderings about politics, 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.
If you watched tonight’s Rachel Maddow you saw a story about secret money and how Trump made Millions selling condos to unknown buyers. He also found out that the financial investigative branch of our government warned real estate. companies not to do business with unknown buyers or cash only buyers without full vetting because they were most likely maundering money.
You think that stopped the current residence of the White House? Of course not, he makes a Ferengi look like someone who is working for a not-for-profit. Sorry about the Star Trek reference, just so you know Ferengi czar individuals in the Star Trek universe that consider making money there highest form of importance. So it’s not all that surprising that now spy agencies all over the world are ready to Blackmail our president.
By the way, one of the Prime blackmailers is the dictator of Kazakhstan. And by chance he’s coming to the White House tomorrow for a private meeting with 45. I wonder how that’s going to go? I can’t wait till 2020 and we get rid of this man.
Donald Trump made a cottage industry of criticizing President Obama. What he criticized President Obama most for was the fact of President Obama would play golf on the time he had off from the White House. He said that President Obama should not be out playing golf while the country had problems. Well, first of all President Obama took office when our country was Free Falling Towards a depression. President Obama needed time off and took a whole whopping 29 days of golfing during his first year in office. 45 on the other hand has taken 127 days to golf during his first year.
The only volunteering I have seen is when 45 went to Texas and gave some Jell-O two people after the hurricane and his most famous was throwing rolls of paper towels at a crowd in Puerto Rico that certainly needed more than just paper towels. Those people needed food. Those people needed power for their homes and freshwater to drink. Those people still need our help but instead of helping 45 goes out and plays another round of golf.
I have said this before on my blog. Hypocrisy what is thy name? Thy name is Donald J Trump.
Destroying the planet seems to be on his agenda. He’s trying to destroy our government and its system. He’s trying to destroy our values. And foremost he seems hell-bent on destroying the
I live in California, I also lived most of my life in Florida. Honestly, California has much more touristic value Onnit Shoreline than Florida does. And yet California drilling has been opened but Florida seems to be special to this hypocritical president.
One by one Republicans like Daryl I said today have said they’re not running for reelection. There are not running for reelection because they won’t win. This President is digging himself into a hole that’s going to be incredibly difficult to get out of.
Once again this Administration and its unjust treatment of individuals is slapped down by the courts. This is why the court system is so important in our country. We have three branches of government and the courts make sure that the executive and the legislative branches do not overstep their Authority. You will hear the GOP talk about Judges that make rulings as judges death deny the other branches of government their rights. That only is an argument they use when the ruling goes against their best interests. And for too long now their best interests have not been with the American people but with corporations and the wealthy. The GOP needs to rethink its whole attitude towards civil rights and the American people and their right to Justice.
As we well know, the DACA recipients are not the criminals that the current occupant of the White House claimed War coming across our borders but have been here all of their lives through no fault of their own brought here by their parents. They are as American as we are. They deserve the right to live in freedom without the threat of some civil Authority coming and rounding them up.
The GOP is fond of saying that this dossier was commissioned by the Hillary Clinton campaign. What they always fail to say was that it was first commissioned by a republican running against Donald Trump.
They refuse to let the transcripts of several witness interviews be released to the public including those of Donald Trump jr. The problem is that they have no basis for not allowing this to be released. In Watergate there was a separation of the powers that made it difficult to get papers released because they were asking for documentation from the executive branch and the legislative branch does not have power to do so as easily as it does to ask for its own documents. Once again the GOP is trying to hide the truth about the Russian collusion with the Trump campaign and the cover-up and obstruction of justice. Let’s not forget this happened during to transition and Mike Pence was in charge during the transition. So this does not stop with Donald Trump it goes throughout his campaign and White House.
After a Judge Roy Moore, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the perfect choice for a GOP candidate for Senate. First they try to get a man who was instrumental in the growth of the me-too movement and now they want to put in a sheriff that broke the law and had to be pardoned. He’s 85 years old which also is a big question mark. If he wins he would be 86 years old which means he would run for reelection at 92. I think it’s time for a new generation to start running for elected positions in the federal government.
We’ve had enough reactionary politicians and Joe Arpaio is not only a convicted felon but one that has no regard for other people’s rights and should never be anywhere close to the Senate.
If we should take him at his word, and who can, this man should be fired! He said that he thought that any NFL owner who did not fire one of the players who took a knee was not doing their Duty. He is the president of the United States he should know every word to the national anthem, I do.
