MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski apologizes for ‘crass and offensive’ remark – NBC news

I’m with Bill Maher here. Enough is enough snowflakes! Why don’t commentators on the right ever apologize for the lies that they spew.

Mika Brzezinski called it like it is. You ignore the death of add American residents, a man who wrote for one of the nation’s leading newspapers, a man who wrote an English so that we can understand, then you are exactly what she said the buttboy of a wannabe dictator secretary pompeo.

Trump Inauguration Spending Under Criminal Investigation by Federal Prosecutors – WSJ

Yesterday Michael Cohen in his court appearance said that he was very sad that he had been taken into the grips of a famous land developer who eventually became president. I think that’s President Trump is going to be very sorry that he fell into the grips of a bad lawyer who recorded everything and now is pointing the barrel right at this Administration.

President Obama’s first inaugural hat a much larger crowd and spent half the money of the Trump inaugural. take into consideration that there were no famous names except for perhaps kid Rock, to have to make arrangements for one wonders where the money went. please understand that inaugural are not a one-off kind of deal. There is a company and Washington that does these inaugural every 4 years and their numbers are basically flat. Where did all the money go? Why were there so many Russians at the inauguration? Why was Michael Flynn texting during the inaugural that the sanctions against Russia we’re going to be dropped?

I find it fascinating that it’s Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street journal that is reporting on this. Trump has had to make some real enemies for them to be doing this to a conservative like president.

I trust that’s there are enough people and the justice department of good moral fiber and will that will get to the bottom of this. And I’m not saying that I’m clairvoyant, but it’s starting to feel alot like Watergate.

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.

V. A. Dept. tells congressional staffers it won’t repay underpaid GI Bill recipients, sources say – NBC News

#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.

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.

Manafort lied to the FBI after his guilty plea, special counsel says – Los Angeles Times

He cavorted with tyrants, oligarchs and dictators. That’s the kind of man Paul manafort, with a small m is. So it’s not surprising that the chairman of the Trump election Committee in 2016 would lie after he made a plea deal. Have you ever heard of a den of thieves, that’s what’s Trump, his White House staff and everyone associated with his campaign are, a den of thieves.

Liars are liars and they won’t stopeven if it means they’re going to spend the rest of their lives in jail

Mia Love gives Trump no love as she concedes a narrow loss in Utah – The Washington Post

In his post-mortem of the 2018 midterm elections, Trump made some weird remarks about Republicans who lost. his weirdest was that Mia Love had shown them no love and therefore she had lost. He did basically the same thing with others but his play on words had the media going.

The GOP lost 40 seats in the house because of trump. By the way I don’t capitalize his name. And I certainly won’t call him president. If the Senate was up a professional body they would have lost big time there as well. This is my one big p with the American system, North Dakota with 440,000 people has the same two senators as California with 42 million people I don’t understand how that is fair. Taxation without representation or at least with full representation.

It’s going to be a rocky month and as he gets more and more unhinged we should be frightened. My Lord, he just asked that we have state-run television just like in North Korea. He said that the lady who does the news was full of pep. What he forgot to say was in North Korea if she wasn’t full of pep she would be dead. Perhaps that’s what he wants for our country, God forbid.

Did I fail to mention that this is Utah!

Russia attacks and seizes three Ukrainian naval vessels off the coast of Crimea in Black Sea – NBC News

I guess Putin is testing to see whether or not he got his money’s worth in the election of Donald Trump. Let’s see how quickly Donald Trump responds to this or says that this is an internal matter and not one that has anything to do with the American people. That is full BS. It is the policy of the United States to try to keep the Nations that split off from the Soviet Union free and independent. It is the policy of Donald Trump’s boss, Putin, to bring as many into his fold again as possible. Russia is a dying country with very few resources. The resource they had been banking on is the resource that has become the least needed, oil. I found it ironic when the Tangerine nightmare in the White House said that the price of oil has gone down because of him, I’m sure this is not making his overlord happy. you remember those Winter Olympics, Putin borrow the money for those Winter Olympics with the understanding that oil would stay at $125 a barrel or more, and that’s not what’s happening.

So now Trump is being tested.

Was he worth the investment by Putin for putting him in the White House?

Can’t wait to watch the Republicans try to ignore the fact that Putin is trying to bring back the Soviet Union.

Trump tore up our nuclear arms agreement with Russia. What else is this unhinged man going to do?

I fear that Trump will go along with whatever Russia wants because as his biggest supporter, hannity says, they have the pee tape.
