The resistance is already planning for when Trump fires Robert Mueller – Slate

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

First I would like to thank my friend Kile Ozier for posting this article originally on Facebook. 

In my opinion, this will be a seminal moment for the Republican Party. It will prove that it’s truly a party that believes in our constitution and in the American way or if it’s become a cult of Trump. 

I’ve said this many times before on my blog that I remember the Watergate scandal vividly. I used to take a portable TV to my summer job to watch the hearings. I guess I was a political junkie even back then. Happy that I’m still fascinated by the subject. That being said the Republican party of 1973 and 74 is a different animal from the one I see today. Sure, there was partisanship, but the love of country came before everything else. The Republicans today are turning their back on the fact that there president won the election with the help of one of our greatest enemies, Russia and Putin. President Nixon, who later apologized for his misdeeds carried out a series of firings called the Saturday night Massacre until he found someone in the Justice Department willing to fire the special prosecutor. I believe the Russians are handing Jeff Sessions head on a platter to the president by insinuating that they had conversations with him about the elections in 2016. This would be a direct contradiction to his testimony during his confirmation hearings in front of the Senate and grounds for his removal. Jeff sessions is a terrible choice for attorney general by any measure but I cannot imagine who president number 45 would choose as his replacement. So as the article says we will need to go out in the streets but we will need to sustain our anger and not let his daily distractions take our focus off of the price of getting him out of office.

McCain’s primary rival urges him to step aside after diagnosis — and suggests she could replace him – The Washington Post

Kelli Ward is a poor excuse for a human being. Trying to make herself better because of the illness and someone else he wants to vomit. I have not agreed with John McCain and some of these decisions but he is the senator from Arizona until he said he’s not and not because of some primary rival.

Shame on the Republican party that’s not coming down on this despicable sweeter and telling her she doesn’t deserve a place in their party, but then the GOP is a party of win at all costs and treason with the Enemy.

Report: Trump Lawyers Exploring Pardons to Undercut Mueller – The Daily Beast

Tags

, , , , , ,

I guess I’m getting old. Having lived through the excruciating Lee slow Watergate process I never thought things would get so bad and so quickly for 45. I always anticipated pardons being part of how this is all going to end. Whether it is pardons by 45 or some future president of the Republican persuasion I always thought that they will be Parton’s. Now the snake of a lawyer that Trump has, wants to use the presidential pardon powers to undercut director Mueller’s investigation of this corrupt Administration. I guess that if they parted all of the potential Witnesses then they cannot be compelled to testify and this whole Scandal goes slithering away. What is not being taken into consideration is the anger of the American people. Sure Trump can easily pardon who he wants. But let’s not be fooled into thinking that if he does there will not be a democratic-led Senate and House ready to impeach him with the full backing of the majority of the American people.

Russia cannot win this.

A California businessman born in former Soviet Union also attended Trump Jr. meeting – LA Times

Soon we’ll find out the whole Politburo, oh wait that was the Soviet Union, was there. I never thought I would be quoting Congressman Trey Gowdy but the drip drip drip is starting to take a toll. These true-blooded Americans who voted for this charlatan must now be realizing they are being lied to everyday. Last night Seth Meyers said that line comes to 45 the same way breathing comes to a whale when it reaches the surface of the ocean. I am hoping that this is going to either make 45 even more intransigence or he realizes that his family is in jeopardy and resigns but gives them all pardons before he does.

Perhaps if we speak in a language that 45 understands better he may stop the idiotic tweeting. 45 you are бредовый, which means delusional and I language that I’m sure he understands better since he owes so much money to this country. Ge must have learned some of it along the way has he sold his soul and our country to Russia.

No, the Democrats are not going to work with you if you repeal the Affordable Care Act. Once again you are бредовый.

It looks like McConnell not going to get his chin implant or any other provisions through to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Victory is in our grasp. The turtle in a Saturday night Massacre has admitted defeat.

I would not put it past the turtle to try to maneuver this again later on but right now this does not look good for trumpcare.

Democrats Sue Trump Campaign Over Leaked Emails Tied to Russia – NYTimes.com

As Rachel Maddow so eloquently put it in her show tonight this is going to be a treasure Trove of Discovery documents. In a lawsuit filed by a group of Obama attorneys and Democratic donors filed against the Trump campaign for invasion of privacy we will see in the discovery process documents revealed. I am one of those donors whose information was released by the Trump campaign. Any one of you who gave money to the Clinton campaign in 2016 is also on that list. Our privacy was invaded and courts will allow our Advocates to go in and look at email chain that are not edited by the president’s son. They will get to the truth and maybe quicker than any special prosecutor could.

Gov. Brown and lawmakers unveil proposal to extend California climate program – LA Times

Some people think where they live is a Birthright, it is a chore, is not where they want to be, and then there’s me who thinks that living in California is a privilege. Living in a state where the majority of the population thinks the way you do is wonderful. Living in a state that does believe the government has a responsibility to take care of those in need is wonderful. Living in a state that cares about its environment before it was fashionable to care about the environment is wonderful to live in a state with a budget surplus and a rainy day fund which started with this Democratic Administration is wonderful. And so living here is a privilege to me. So when I read an article that says that the government of my state is going to buck the trend of Washington to ignore are looming climate crisis, it makes me proud.

Podesta calls Trump ‘our whack job’ president in response to error-filled tweet – The Washington Post

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Calling 45 our whack-job president is rather tame in my opinion and that of many psychiatrists and psychologists across the country. It is time for the country to realize that the band in the Oval Office is not well. He admits to talking to himself and says that his big brain is all he needs to make decisions of State. If you listen to him speak one also understand that his big brain also makes up words that don’t exist in anybody else’s brain.
Perhaps John Podesta has a degree in psychotherapy and knows what is wrong with our president and that is specifically he’s a whack job, we are using the clinical term here.

U.S. Office of Government Ethics director resigns – POLITICO

Tags

, , , ,

Being in charge of ethics for the u.s. government in this age of 45 would lead to insanity. I am so pleased to see that he’s going to an NGO which oversees and keeps government in check as much as it can.

This Administration has trampled on ethics. From the fact that the president refuses to release his tax returns, to his daughter’s and other children’s issues with having Holdings witch are being influenced by their position in their father’s sphere of influence. All of these patents and copyrights that Ivanka is getting from China is not a coincidence. It’s time that there is a true divestiture of Investments by 45 pennies whole immediate family. End of discussion.
