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.
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.
I was a fan of Michael avenatti until he screwed up the Supreme Court confirmation process and broth someone who would not at the end of the day truly be a victim of Brett Kavanaugh. I truly believe that he made professor Ford’s testimony have less weight because of the fact that was a false accuser. Whether or not he’s guilty of this is not for me to decide
That’s what Mitch McConnell says today, on Wednesday he will march on and try to destroy the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. He’s afraid to say that he’s going to do it today because he knows people will vote. It’s amazing a man from a stay like Kentucky can run the country.
Being merely a blogger I don’t have access to the news media’s journalism and reach. I do have my brain. It became evident to me last year when it was revealed that Facebook received rubles, the Russian currency, in payment for ads running on their platform against Hillary Clinton. My brain tells me that Mark Zuckerberg was trying an experiment. I truly believe that Mark Zuckerberg thinks the world is is giant petri dish. One only needs to think about the fact that they tried to manipulate the Facebook stream to your content and see whether or not they could change your mood. I refuse to be a guinea pig and left Facebook about a year ago.
Removing Mark Zuckerberg would be a first step in my feeling a little bit more confident about Facebook. It certainly will not be what makes me get back to the platform.
Being blinded by ambition and the need to please one’s case is not exclusively a republican problem. I have watched the Democrats fall into the same exact trap. Right now it seems that the grand old party is in quicksand. One by one their nominations turn out to be flawed in so many respects that you wonder who did the vetting. Well the vetting was done by a White House that’s incompetent and 12 years ago we had the same issues. I know everybody looks back to W with nostalgia. I wonder how much Nostalgia those who lost loved ones in unnecessary wars have for his presidency. So yes, the Republicans have had a terrible run the last 16 years and I hope that they will find their way and understand that they need to be a party that opens its doors to everyone. The Democrats in the 60s were the Republicans of today and the Democrats found a way to fix themselves. I hope the Republicans will do the same for the sake of our country.
I’ve never been a fan of Kevin Spacey. I never watched House of Cards even though it’s right down my alley because of him. People who know me ask how come I’ve never watched House of Cards and I never tell them the truth. I never watched it because of Kevin Spacey. So there.
So it seems very fitting that his latest movie grossed less than $13 a theater and it’s opening night. Yes, $13 per movie theater showing this movie.$13! I guess it’s not 13 being a lucky number for him.
I am sad for the other actors who had to endure his presence and now have this on their resume. I’m sorry for all of the producers but they made the decision to have him in the movie.
But the part that annoys me the most about this whole Kevin Spacey episode is the fact that he thought coming out would make all this a better outcome for him. It doesn’t, it makes him more of a liar.
It seems that someone has grown the semblance of a spine. Paul Ryan has doggedly supported all of Trumps bad behavior. Finally he is saying things that are reasonable.
This means there is no Witch Hunt.
I believe when Trump said that he can pardon himself he crossed a line. The justice system is very clear no one can judge themselves. We are not in a monarchy we are in a constitutional government run by three branches.
Trump thinks he’s King and there’s going to be a time when there will be a metaphorical “Off with the head”, and I hope soon.
Hillary Clinton was called a traitor by this President because she used a secure email server in her home. He is being told that using his phone without the proper security measures is dangerous for a country but I guess our country safety is too inconvenient for him.
