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 1966 Robert F. Kennedy delivered a speech that included an instance: There is a Chinese curse which says “Mayhelive in interesting times.” Like it or not,we live in interesting times. They aretimesof danger and uncertainty; but they are also the most creative of any time in the history of mankind.
Two days ago special counsel Robert Mueller made a 9 1/2 minute report to the country. Whether you like him or you don’t like him this man is a patriot and I believe he wanted to warn us not just about the abuses in the white house but also the threat to our democracy by foreign actors, especially Russia, but with thanks to this Administration to others including China and Iran.
he urged that all Americans read the reports that he and his team put together. It’s not a dry read but it’s certainly not a John Grisham novel I’m posting this because I’m hoping that my followers on this blog will take the time to download this and read the part they are interested in if not the whole 485 pages.
Our democracy is at stake here. I think it is our civic duty to read this report that took two years in the making. Yesterday the report paid for itself. Paul manafort’s for securus of his properties including a condominium on the 43rd floor of Trump Tower are now the properties of the United States of America and its citizenry. The Marshal Service will be posting these properties for sale and they’re value is considered to be conservatively at 42 million dollars. The whole power investigation cost $22, 000,000.
Let TV commentators be TV commentators but it’s time for us to get on the saddle and read the report itself.
As an animal lover the fact that someone had 150 small animals living in a mansion when none of their neighbors in a gated community new that they even had a dog is frightful to me.
This is disgusting.
As a political junkie what I find most disturbing is the fact that these people, Edward and Jo Reitkopp were rabid Trump supporters. I’m not putting a correlation between the two but if you go to this person’s Facebook page you will see nothing but pictures of Trump.
The house was so filthy that people had to go in to get the animals in hazmat suits. the animals were covered in feces and urine, these people need to be put in jail for a long time and hopefully a jail that doesn’t let him go to the bathroom in a toilet just like what they did to their poor animals.
I just heard on MSNBC that’s Trump is throwing tantrums throughout private wing of the White House and this news cannot be welcome to him or Jared Kushner. Let’s face it Benjamin Netanyahu is a crook who stole from his people. Of course just like Trump supporters BB’s supporters follow him blindly and don’t care that he is corrupt to the Core.
My dad worked for the state of Israel and he got me this incredible gig when I was in college. I talked to spend a week with the leader of Israel while they were planning fundraising for Israel in the seventies. There was a conference every year in Miami Beach and my job was to take care of the Israeli leader and I actually got to spend a lot of time with people like Prime Ministers Golda Meir and Yitzhak Rabin. Now those were Prime Ministers that Israel could be proud of. I hope the Israeli people will elect someone that will leave their country on the path to peace and not a path to war. I think we’ve had enough Wars in our lifetimes.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has been nicknamed “the magician” for the political wizardry that has kept him in office for the last decade.

Republicans only win when they cheat and those who support their cheating ways are cheaters themselves.
So the turtle speaks and he says that’s what he said in 2016 was a lie.anyone who knows the man or watched him perform knows that he lies through his teeth and will do anything to win, destroying thesystem our government has worked with for the last 230 years. our government works because there are three branches and the turtle wants to make sure there’s only one branch and that’s the presidency. The turtle will be upset when a Democrat wins the presidency and this time I hope the Democrats don’t play fair but instead use his words against him.
It was fun watching Lindsey Graham get the Chuck Todd message used on him during an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox news this weekend. Chuck Todd loves to play people something they have said in the past And ask them how they feel about it now. That pieocracy of Republicans is beyond the pale. I’m going watch Lindsey Graham on television anymore but I’ve read the reports and he lied through his teeth like all the Republicans in the Senate seem to be doing right now. What a shameful display by a once-great party.
Remember Merrick Garland he deserves to be on Supreme Court but the turtle would not let it be on it because of politics and lies.
Before showing the doctored video of herself, Nicole Wallace said that in a 3-second Google search she found an altered video of Trump. I don’t know why we need altered videos of trump, the reality is scary enough. Has he not slurred his word or mispronounced things during rallies enough to make us wonder about his mental health?
Trump knows this and he’s trying to shine the spotlight on others. That’s why I think it’s important that we do not nominate Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders. It will be hard for him to attack a Kamala Harris or a Peter Buttigieg for slurring their words. He’s the decrepit old man who eats nothing but fast food what’s a clot waiting to go up into his reign. I don’t wish harm on anyone so I hope this never happens to him and he dies a quiet sleep in prison.
It’s funny how things change in this world. When Nicole Wallace was this press spokesman for George W bush I would yell at the scream like I do to Sarah Huckabee whenever she deems it okay to do her job. I watch Nicole Wallace everyday and her intelligence and insightful commentary on politics should be watched by a lot more people.
Do you remember when do United States promoted democracy across the globe? It wasn’t that long ago, like in 2016. Now we have a government that praises dictators and welcomes them into the White House with open arms. Now we have a government that believes liars like Putin and Mohammed Bin Salman.now we have a government that says there are good people on both sides when white nationalist kill someone in Charlottesville.
We are not used to selling arms, We are in the arms Dealer to the world. Of course we never had a former Boeing executive as the acting Secretary of Defense before. Selling arms to other countries has a process.and the process needs to go through Congress but this President and his administration believe they are above the law. let’s see how the spineless republicans in Congress hold up the power of their branch of government, I have very little faith they will.
So let’s all bask in the orb of Darkness that is descending upon a country under this Administration. The little boy that never grew up, Jared Kushner, is having his day. John Bolton knows that this is going to provoke Iran. So everybody’s having their cake and eating it too.
Before I even use the I word, I would like to say a couple of things about his approval rating. He claims that his approval rating would be at 65% if it were not for the Russia investigations. I have to respectfully disagree. Russia has nothing to do with his approval ratings. His approval ratings are a function of the fact that about 30% of the American people are Republicans, 30% of the American people are Democrats and the rest are Independents. from the day he took office this president has never acted like the president of the United States but rather the president of those who voted for him. He is attacked Democrats as if they are not part of this country. Independentsare not affiliated to any party but they have eyes and ears and they see what’s happening with this presidency. The profanity, the vulgar ism’s, the lack of moral standards, tell lies, the poor choices for people in high places, and the lack of stability is why his approval ratings are always in the mid-30s. The Russia investigation has nothing to do with his terrible performance as a president. He continuously claims that the economy is because of his doing. He inherited President Obama’s economy which was like a giant snowball rolling down a hill with the momentum that has kept going. Don’t worry mr. Trump, your tariffs and poor judgment will wreck this economy. You’re ridiculous tax breaks for the very very wealthy are going to cause this deficit to explode.
Today, he canceled meetings with pop Congressional leaders regarding infrastructure because he says the agreement between Canada and Mexico needs to be ratified first. Disagreement should be ratified but it is a necessary step because what we had with Canada and Mexico was a great agreement I was working well for all three countries. This is a slight tweak to the agreements not an overall the way he claims.
Anybody who flies within the United States and goes to another continent sees how terrible are airports are. We are the laughing stock of the world because we are the richest economy and we are not spending the money we’re needs to go. Are roads, bridges Aaron’s power transmission infrastructure is falling apart. We could be attacked by China, Russia or ran using our antiquated electrical grid to take down this country. But this modern-day emperor Nero is fiddling while the United States of America is burning.
This is a difficult choice but I agree with speaker Pelosi and we need to do the investigations before we start the impeachment process. My main rub with how Congress is proceeding is that Congress is acting like this is a normal presidency, which it is not. We need to be much more proactive and set timelines that are shorter and with more punitive actions for those who do not answer subpoenas and aids in the investigation up his corrupt man.
I bring this up often but can you imagine call the Republican heads would explode collectively if President Obama went on a tweetstorm of any kind?
When Google started there mission statement said Do No Harm.
There are people who started off with Windows, like me, and have not been an Apple fan.there are people who have been in the Android ecosystem as opposed to the Apple One. I am firmly entrenched in the Android ecosystem.
Google has been criticized, and rightfully, that it’s algorithms will radicalized individuals. This is true because of how, especially YouTube, and it’s algorithm will start sending you what it thinks you would want to see again, to keep your eyes on the screen. I once looked up how to lubricate the seals in my Volkswagen convertible and I had nothing but those videos showing up in my suggestion list.so if someone looks up an Isis video for example, they will be fed Isis video after Isis video. Let me be clear that Google doesn’t have Isis videos on its site, or so it thinks, people are clever and they will hide their their intentions but the algorithm doesn’t see that. So if you see one hate video you will see thousands of them come up on your suggestion list.
What Google is doing here is requiring companies that are advertising abortion services to prove that they actually offer abortion Services. What has happened in the past is that so-called pro-life companies or individuals have said they are abortion providers and then when somebody clicks on their ad it takes you into that dark world trying to keep you from doing what you need to do to your own body.
I applaud Google for this and I hope other companies like Facebook and Amazon will start taking a more proactive approach when they accept advertising. I have gone on and on on my block about the fact that Facebook accepted Russian currency for ads against Hillary Clinton. Who did they think was buying these hats? That’s why I deleted Facebook over a year-and-a-half ago and I’ve never looked back.
Kris Kobach is the scum of the Earth. You know him because he’s the one who doesn’t want minorities voting. So of course the Trump Administration looking for the best people are asking him to be in Trump’s cabinet, and as the Earth would do he is demanding a list of perks to take the job.
Can you imagine, and I’ve said this before on this blog, if let’s say either President Obama or a president Hillary Clinton had had an idiot like this guy asking for these perks what the Republicans head’s would do in unison?
And this from the “fiscally responsible” conservative Republicans! A Private jet on call!
