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 the Democrats are going to win the White House in 2020 they must be pragmatic. I think that Beto O’Rourke would fit the mold for a lot of those people who would be uncomfortable, maybe because of their racism, with a person of color at the top of the ticket. I would love to see Carmela Harris as president but I fear that she would polarize the right into Ville coming out in voting and Rose. I believe the right learned our lesson with President Obama and have now mobilized as a feverish voting Bloc. They don’t seem to have Trump fatigue, which baffles me. So yes, a young man, a Kennedy like like figure would be a great choice.
Very unscientific polls of Democrats on Twitter have him in the lead, they don’t work checks a lot of boxes for voters. He’s fully bilingual, he is an amazing speaker and most importantly he makes you feel good when you hear him. And he also tells the truth which would be such a refreshing difference from what we have right now in the White House.
During 2004 Democratic Convention I had some friends over watching the keynote speech by then Senator Obama. After we finished I said he’s going to be our president and everyone in the room started chuckling and told me I was delusional. For some reason, I get the same feeling from Beto O’Rourke.
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.
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
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.
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.
When the asshole who is in the White House was running for president he kept saying how much he loves the gays he said it over and over again. It’s why he is gotten the moniker of Liar in Chief.
He doesn’t want people to get any rights other than the ones who voted for him. He doesn’t care about the 60% of the United States did not vote for him. Look what he’s doing to California. He is a disgrace and I wish the network’s would stop covering every morsel that comes out of that man’s hole in his face. I’m sorry I usually I’m not this angry but this is beyond the pale.
The Israeli military was one of the first to allow gays lesbians and transgender to be in their military. Nobody can say that the Israeli military is weaker for it. As a matter of fact the statistics show that militaries that are inclusive have a better moral and longer stays in the military. Our own pentagon is not in favor of this. The Tangerine nightmare in the White House is playing to his base and stirring up anti-gay sentiments in those 40% that voted for him. Shame on him.
The idiot in Chief in the White House who is only concerned with his uneducated base and his corporate overlords. it’s like he doesn’t have a 13 year old son that is going to be impacted by climate change. But as he said in the interview with Fox when they ask them what his process for making decisions were and he replied I don’t have one. This completely illustrates his horrendous 2 years and the White House, no thought process.
He watches Sean hannity every night and then like a little kid calls his idol.
the only problem is that Sean hannity seems to have I’m almost finish like fixation on Trump’s pee tape. If you watch the video you’ll see how many times hannity mentions it in his show. The Tangerine nightmare cannot like this. We’re talking about 20 times it’s been mentioned. I, unfortunately, have MSNBC on all the time and they rarely talk about it. Fox News and Sean hannity their highest rated show talk about it all the time.
Enjoy the video and a very very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
Is it surprising to anyone that the scam artist president has brought on board has his acting attorney general another scam artist ? Not to me. we have seen in the last 24 hours how this President thinks the law is not something that was written for him to abide by. whether it’s how he handled the tragedy of the Murder by the Saudi Arabian crown Prince of an American based journalist or how his daughter seems to think that emails can be sent willy-nilly or how he promised the state of California 500 million dollars when he was visiting on Saturday but has no intention of ever giving that money over.
Can we forget about Trump University? Or how about the Trump foundation? It’s funny how he doesn’t talk about the Clinton foundation anymore now that we know how bad his foundation has been.
An acting attorney general that is a criminal, usual concept. Can you imagine if President Obama had even ventured anywhere close to this level of corruption ? The Republicans would have gone Haywire.
My only hope for this President is that he can find the time transport scam that his acting attorney general was all over and sent himself back into the past and never run for President.
Nancy Pelosi has been one of the most effective people in the Democratic party. She was a great Speaker of the House.
I don’t want to say that people are sexist all the time but it seems that women get a bad rap compared to men. And that’s not fair. Perhaps it’s the vestige of the male ego worrying that they will no longer be in power. I think it’s the same mentality that put Trump into the White House where white people thought that people of color were taking over to their country. That doesn’t negate the fact, she work for it and deserves it and has earned it.
