Trump says he wanted to give himself Medal of Honor for valor during war – POLITICO

Quick question to my readers. Do you know anyone who has gotten the medal of valor from the United States of America for draft dodging before?

My mom and dad lost a child before I was born and I was very precious to them. My time to serve our country in Vietnam came and although they would have dreaded seeing me go they would have let me go to Vietnam because that was what Americans do. My draft number was very high up and I was never called that’s completely different from what happened during Trump’s time to serve our country.

His father is a racist to come to a doctor that said he had a bone spur. We have never seen any evidence of this being true. He is a draft Dodger, end of discussion.

The medal of Honor is given to those who have served our country and to joke about it and tell people who are getting their medal how he should have given himself one is so disrespectful that every veteran even those who voted for Trump should be screaming blasphemy.

Trump cancels Denmark trip after PM says Greenland isn’t for sale – NBC News

Like a petulant child who is told that he can’t get something he wants, baby Trump may hold his breath until he turns blue.

This article basically sums up the Trump presidency. He reaches for something he cannot reach 4 gets burned and pots. it’s amazing how Denmark was always the place that he would refer to as idyllic that along with Norway I don’t believe he understands that Denmark exists. They are idolized by him because he views them as a homogeneous population of blondes. He cannot be further from the truth. a visit to Norway would have opened his eyes as he would see that they have been welcoming to the stranger and have been able to assimilate a large influx of Asylum seekers into their society. Also, Norway would be a country he with the Clare as Communists although their socialist system is very fair. Norway always ranks at the top of countries for happiness index, longevity, education, and all-around well-being. Sure they pay high taxes but they don’t have to worry about whether they’ll have a roof over their head or whether their kids will get a good education without crippling debt or if family members will have to bear the burden of their funeral expenses. If you add up all the things that Norway gets in their socialist system you will see that they have a bargain. when you add up everything that we pay out of pocket including Healthcare the USA is no bargain.

So once again baby Trump goes out to the private quarters in The West Wing and acts the petulant child that he is.

The Obamas’ First Big Anti-Trump Statement of 2020 – POLITICO Magazine

The story of the Trump administration in regards to factory workers is simply put. Big promises made no Promises kept.

This is a sad story that’s being told across the US. Whether it’s the fox come plant in Wisconsin which is costing Wisconsin taxpayers $279,000 per job or the story about this Glass Factory taken over by China where employees have no Union, no job security, unsafe working conditions and lower pay.

I’ve been reposting something I saw on Twitter and basically it says “President Obama, please come home, the babysitter is weird.”.

Trump is going to do everything to make it seem like it’s not his fault, he is a master at blaming others for his feelings. The American people have to be educated by whomever the Democratic party nominates because this is going to be and this is not an overstatement oh, this is going to be the election that will change the course of American history. 2016 was the beginning but 2020 will either tear down what Trump has tried to do to our government or we will not recognize the country in 2025.

Kellyanne Conway Falsely Claims Antifa Is Short for ‘Anti-First Amendment’ – The Daily Beast

Nobody in the Trump administration better represents the destruction of norms by this administration than Kellyanne Conway. That’s not hyperbole. She is a paid employee of the federal government. Yes, she is meant to give advice and counsel to a man who obviously doesn’t listen to anybody but himself. but she’s not meant to be the propaganda Minister for Trump and yet that’s exactly what she does on a daily basis.

Others in other administrations have had a similar position but none of them have ever taken up the mantle of lies like Kellyanne. Her lies come out as easily as her breath. She distorts truth and outright lies about it all the time. This is an administration that doesn’t have any real laurels to lay on its proverbial head. Sure they’ve got them too supreme Court justices who are most likely going to overturn Roe v Wade and they have brought in a slew of other judges more than prison Obama did in his whole eight years because of Moscow Mich. They gave a big tax cut to the rich and the rich are giving them their support.

It’s funny how Trump said today that the people of the United States are rich because of him. today I went to the grocery store and my checkout lady, Bertha, told me that at night the only thing they do is raise prices on everything because of the tariffs. this is heading home to everyone and if Trump who never has to buy a single thing for his fat body thinks that we are all rich perhaps the same kind of Rich that bankrupted him and all the businesses that he has failed in.

Wyden Slams Republican FEC Commissioners for Blocking Probe of NRA, Possible Campaign Finance Violations – Newsweek

I hope alarm bells are going off all over the country and ringing loudly in Washington. Our democracy is being attacked and the present administration is walking mean it. They understand that they’re cozying up to dictators means that dictators want Trump to stay in office. This is not a conspiracy theory at all, this is being done in plain sight by Trump. His love affair with Putin, Kim jong-un and even the leader of China Ximakes these people want him to remain in office. What better way to keep him in office but to rig the election.

I watched last night the Democratic chairman of the Federal election commission almost apoplectic almost be apoplectic regarding the fact that her fellow commissioners of the Republican persuasion refuse to look into anything that has to do with Russia and election interference. This is only inviting more interference by every single dictatorship that Trump has weirdly embraced. I think that if you see him getting close to start dealing with Iran it’s because he knows Iran has the ability to rig our elections as well and he doesn’t want any of the players who will attack our democracy in 2020 not be on his side. There should be no his side there should only be the site of America, the United States of America.

There should be no his side there should only be the site of America, the United States of America.

If this is #MAGA2020 I want nothing to do with it.

Tyson wants fewer government inspectors in one of its beef plants. Food safety advocates are raising alarms – NBC News

I’m old enough to remember in 1993 the Jack-in-the-Box e-coli disaster. E coli was found in hamburger meat sold by Jack in the box where 4 people died and 700 were made very sick. You cannot expect an industry to be its own watchdog. The rules are being made in the dark. USDA Inspectors have to have at least a 4 year degree. The new rules would allow people with high school education’s to inspect our foods. Employees are less likely to report problems to their company and fear of retaliation. This is dangerous and must not happen but if it does we will be reducing climate by not eating meat because it’s going to become dangerous.

Self inspections don’t work, ask Boeing.

From the NBC news article:

Still, advocates argue that even the remote possibility of a mistake could harm public health.

“We must keep food inspectors on the line to look for dangerous diseases and contamination,” Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., chair of the Congressional Food Safety Caucus, said in a statement, “not outsource this vital role to industry employees.”

Buyer beware of Tyson products in the future.

Failed Russian nuclear test hints at Putin’s dangerous plans to beat U.S. defenses – NBC News

We had a treaty with Russia to keep them and us from developing nuclear missiles. This was called the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Our stable genius in the White House tore it up last year.

So here we are with Russia building missiles that actually spew nuclear radiation. And we can thank our stable genius for that.

Chernobyl in the sky, what a wonderful headline that could mean the end of the Earth as we know it.

Democrats blast Trump’s Epstein conspiracy theory retweet as Conway defends the president – TheHill

I have a simple question. Who do you think has more power? a president who has not been in office for almost 20 years or the current president of the United States?

I find it hysterical how he is tweeting about this because he knows that the spotlight is going to shine on him. it’s been documented that he attended a party with Jeffrey Epstein we’re the only two men wear them and there were 28 women and girls some of them underage. Have you ever been to a party where there’s only two men and 28 women? I’m sure there’s much more dirt that we know nothing about.

attorney general Barr was very quick yesterday and saying that he could not understand how this happened. He’s the Attorney general of the United States and this man was in his custody. Why was it taken off of suicide watch? He try to commit suicide two weeks ago and then Just five days ago they took him off of suicide watch. Was he seen by a psychologist and if so did they not realize that this man is a master manipulator? Psychologists are not magicians and they can’t see into our minds so keeping him on a suicide watch especially for such a high-value prisoner would have made sense. The Attorney-general failedand his duty and this whole investigation needs to have a separate special prosecutor one completely independent from the fake Attorney general.

Epstein’s alleged victims ‘angry’ and frustrated he won’t be alive to face justice – NBC News

Once again I must say that I am not a conspiracy theorist it anyway. But I do have an inquiring mind.

A little over two weeks ago Jeffrey Epstein tried to kill himself in the same jail that hewas in when he did eventually committed suicide today. Would they not have had him on suicide watch and if not why not?

yes all of the information that came out yesterday was quite damning but he had to know this was coming out so it makes no sense to me that he’s worried about his reputation and therefore committed suicide. The fact that he recruited young women of 14 and 15 in Mar-a-Lago in the 90s was very telling. I just had a conversation with one of my neighbors and we talked about this then she asked me about Bill Clinton. you know, I don’t think that Bill Clinton is an angel but in any way but I think that he did not have the opportunity because in 1992 he became president and from that point on other than is dalliance in the oval Office he was pretty much under guard by the Secret Service from that point on. So I don’t think his name is going to be prominent in this investigation.

On the other hand, the current occupant of the White House has his feet in the excrement big time. The most damning story is the one about the party that had 30 people, 28 underaged women and Epstein and Trump seems like a recipe for disaster. they used to call Reagan the Teflon president but Trump is not Teflon he has some weird superhero coding on him because it seems that nothing sticks. I wonder if sex with underage sex slave women well even vent his approval rating. He has given the religious right what they want and that’s judges and honestly these people who are religious don’t understand that they sold their soul to the devil.

I’m sorry that the victims will not have their day in court. At least the estate has the most expensive private home in New York City. Weirdly located directly across the street from where Bill Cosby and his family lives. Bill Cosby is in jail for the rest of his life but they still have that a house.

Sen. John Barrasso throws cold water on new gun legislation – POLITICO

Let’s get one important fact out of the way right off the bat:

Just 2 percent of Barrasso’s 2017 fundraising is Wyoming-based

and if you look deeper you’ll see that he is absolutely not allergic to getting dark money, money from packs that don’t tell anyone where this money is coming from. You can thank citizens united for his still remaining in the Senate.

I love how he talks about how a red flag law could hurt law-abiding citizens. DUI laws are exactly the same thing. no one would even consider saying that the DUI laws hurt law-abiding citizens but when your money comes from the gun lobby you will say anything even if it comes out of your ass.

And what hurts me the most is that he only represents a little over a quarter million people when Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris of California each represent a little bit over 20 million people. Taxation without equal representation anybody?

Until we clean the slate in the House and Senate of Republicans that refused to abide by the will of the people and I am talking about 80 to 90% of the American people including 72% of Republicans at the last poll who are looking for and are demanding common Sense gun control.

Enough is enough
