The Washington Post: The sad truth about Russian election interference by Robby Mooks

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.

The American Bar Association had concerns about Kavanaugh 12 years ago. Republicans dismissed those, too. – The Washington Post

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.

Trump’s Unhinged Rant About Gestating A Turkey Might Be His Weirdest Tangent Yet – Huffington Post

I think the American people, including many Trump supporters, understand that this man needs see a psychiatrist about his mental state. I don’t believe he ever wanted to be president and now he’s trapped in this job and he doesn’t want. People are pushing him to stay in the office because they want him to bring their agenda into fruition. it’s rather selfish of them but then the Stephen Miller’s of the world are selfish.

So let’s talk about this turkey, I guess we could call it the turkey in the room. Butterball says that even a 30 lb turkey should only be cooked for 6 hours if it stuffed. All this food talk is making me hungry. Anyway, this is a president that loves to eat steaks well done, the worst way to cook a steak. No wonder the chefs of the White House find him to be the worst president they’ve ever worked for. They should just put a McDonald’s in the White House and that would be all he needs.

People who are more polite than I said that he was distracted on Tuesday night. I don’t call this distraction I call it the beginnings of dementia.

President Trump cracked an ‘awkward’ joke about Melania [Video] – Yahoo News

Let’s face it America, we have a man as the President of the United States who doesn’t understand how to be a human being. From the treatment of his wife to the abuse of the 29 women that have come out and accuse them of sexual harassment or worst, to how he is held the office of presidency he does not deserve to be in that spot. Yes he won the electoral college but he lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes out of 100 million cast.

Almost daily we hear about this President paying women off for his behavior. From Michael avenatti being on television daily talking about Stormy Daniels to the close to 30 women that have accused this President of sexual misconduct this must be a very hard time for the First Lady. Remember that these allegations of misconduct happens while his wife was pregnant with their current youngest child Baron. This must be a soul-crushing. For the First Lady. The only reasons that she has not left him his either her respect for the office of the presidency or her belief that this is best for their child. And any case she deserves a medal.

Trump Jr. told Senate he didn’t recall telling father about Russian meeting – NBC News

I was a Sag-Aftra agent for many years. I have had the privilege of working with some of the best casting directors and none of them could have envisions a monthly crew like the people who surrounded Trump before and after the election.

I’ve said this on my blog before, I have seen this movie before. And the last time the Senate committee released documents about a president this damaging was during Watergate.

People are continuously asking me what I believe the endgame is going to be. I truly believe that people are going to go to jail and I don’t think that Mike Pence is going to become president. Mike Pence was in charge of the transition. He had to know what was going on. His weird Allegiance, almost cult-like, to Trump tells me that Trump knows a lot that he’s holding over Pence.

This is a white house that has no head. And I mean it has no brain. Not to have foreseen that the North Koreans were playing them is mind-boggling. Everything this white house has done before the election and since it’s been in power has been a shit show.

Kellyanne Conway Flips Out When Asked About Her Husband’s Trump-Trolling Tweets – HuffPost

The most disingenuous human being on the planet is Kellyanne Conway.

Does she sit in front of a mirror practicing to make that weird face? Screenshot from CNN State of the Union

She has no problem in bringing up extramarital Affairs of others like the Clintons. She doesn’t mind stepping into other people’s homes and trying to destroy their families. But when it comes to her and her precious president there’s where she goes off the rail.

Dana Bash had every reason to ask her about her husband’s tweets and if she didn’t want to talk about it then just say I’m not comfortable that question but going and reaming her a new rectum is not exactly how I presidential counselor should behave.

Cohen got Us Weekly to kill story about alleged Trump Jr. affair: report – TheHill

How many ways can we say that the douchebag does not fall far from the douchebag tree. Or should we use our illustrious president’s new world scumbag, or maybe just playing douche. In any case this does not in any way surprise me. Donald Trump jr. finds it exciting, and I think in the sexual way to kill endangered species. So what’s a little Affair here on the side

Oh, how I long for those days of the Bush twins getting drunk while they were in college.

‘Oh my God…It’s fake’: Far right falls for hoax about Broward County sheriff – POLITICO

The problem with fake news is if you listen to it all the time you start believing it. If you listen to the pablum and hatred that is spewed on Fox all the time you start believing it. Sheriff Steve Israel riled up the right because he said that military assault weapons should not be in the hands of anyone in this country other than the military. He said that he’s a hunter but he doesn’t understand the need for a military assault weapon if you’re truly a hunter. That got the the GOP right-wingers very upset. So, they did what they do best, create fake news. They posted videos of a woman claiming to have been raped by Steve Israel and then forced to have an abortion. She was an actress she didn’t know what she was talking about and apologizes. but you know that Fox News is never going to say anything about this because it doesn’t fit their opinion. And the problem is that news should not be opinionated it should be facts and that seems to have escaped for those who watch Fox News. It’s funny the people who scream fake news the most are the ones who create it. It’s an old adage that the thief has the most locks on his home.

Well, the irony is that Fox News is truly fake news.

Lie detector test shows Stormy Daniels truthful about Trump affair – NBC News

What are the odds that Donald J Trump could pass a lie detector about anything? I doubt if he would not lie even if you were asked what day of the week it was. I think lying is part of his DNA. Well, I think that’s proven by the way his children Act.

I never doubted Stormy Daniels and her story about having a relationship with our current president. She fits the mold and he’s a lecherous old man. The fact that 19 other women have come out and said that he was inappropriate with them in some way and another adult film star has he had an affair with her just makes it even more believable.

And yet, the GOP, the grand old party, and its leadership refuses to admit that he has done this. Now all of a sudden it’s a private matter. It’s amazing how it’s a private matter when it suits them. Why should it not be a private matter if a woman wants to end a pregnancy? I think that’s more of a private matter then whether our president had an affair with a pornstar after having had a baby with his new and beautiful wife.

The GOP, the party of family values, indeed.

ICE spokesman resigns, citing fabrications by agency chief, Sessions about Calif. immigrant arrests – The Washington Post

I have been on this planet almost 64 years. I have seen lots and lots of administrations come and go. But I’ve never seen one that lies to the American people this way. It’s continuous it’s never-ending and it comes from every branch of the administration. I am so tired of hearing about the lies that this White House puts out every day through its so-called press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And now has a resident of California I am absolutely Furious about the fact that they’ve been lying about undocumented criminals in our state. This has prompted the resignation of their spokesperson at ICE because he could not keep putting out these lies. Enough is enough this is a treasonous Administration that counts house to Russia and now we need to get rid of them. I have not said the impeachment word in my blog yet but I’m ready to say that now.
