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.
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 truly believe that the Republicans hate elections. They would rather have a status quo where do they stay permanently in power. first it was the caravan to distract us and now it’s these attorneys coming down to Broward who are Democrats who are trying to change votes. Poppycock!
When elections the old-fashioned way GOP, put together a slight ofissues that the common man would like and not just your corporate overlords. Don’t say on Monday that you’re for Obamacare and yet do everything you could the week before to destroy it. Don’t they think that people see through them?
If these new ballots had come from a republican stronghold you know that they would be fighting to get those counted but now they’re coming from Broward County the most democratic County in all of Florida and they don’t like that
Dog whistles are meant to be heard by A specific group. In the case of Ron DeSantis that group is racists. if you don’t believe that then you haven’t seen him in action. With the unexpected win by an African-American for the Democratic nomination for Florida governor Ron DeSantis has gone on the offencive. And his offencive is a objectionable. The governor of Florida like the president of the United States needs to be the leader of all the people not just those who vote for you. And yet that seems to be a recurring theme with the Republican Party. Do things for your base and ignore The rest of the country because they didn’t vote for you. That’s not how government was supposed to work and shame on the GOP for making it so.
Divide and conquer is how enemies look hat the countries they plan to invade. But we have a President Who is hell-bent on dividing this country but for what purpose? Perhaps at the urging of his friend in the Kremlin or just because he’s trying to deflect from the crap that’s going on in his White House and Trump org.
After watching Rachel Maddow today where she showed the evolution of the National Enquire’s covers over the course of the presidential campaign 1 can understand stop lying to the American people in order to retain or grab power seems to be a Hallmark of Trump and Company. Every grocery checkout in the country there was an article on the weekend prior to the election in 2016 was a headline that said that Hillary Clinton was a racist and used the n-word. I have heard of projection but this is projection on steroids.
This man will use any means possible to get his way including hurting a family that is suffering from a devastating loss. My mom and dad lost the daughter and they never recovered and I cannot believe that the president of the United States is using this as a way of promoting himself, his agenda and distracting from what’s going on.
I recall hearing, even recently, at Trump rallies the cry drain the swamp. I think instead of draining the swamp, he’s put radioactive material into it and now we have swamp monsters. In an era where bipartisan voices from Congress are rare it is refreshing to see this happening over the case of this pay-for-play situation with the White House. It’s very clear that Trump organization received favorable treatment by the Chinese government and now the result is letting this Trojan Horse into our country.
After all of the news about what Michael Cohen has done for his other two clients I have to wonder what Sean Hannity has had to pay 4 Michael Kong to fix. Michael Cohen is a fixer and not an attorney in the way that you and I think of an attorney. It’s more like an attorney in The Godfather. He threatens people and he does underhanded deals that hide information from the public. Case in point all of the non-disclosure agreements with people who have had relationships with the current occupant of the White House. Or the RNC Finance chair who had to have an abortion with a young lady he had sexual relations with. This is the classic Family Values party that the Republicans have been counting all these years. Affairs with pornstars and Playboy bunnies and abortions left and right.
Sean Hannity is not a reporter. Sean Hannity is a pundit who’s relationship with the truth what’s only when it’s convenient for him. But Fox News sells him as a reporter and let’s be honest here he is in the back pocket of the present occupant of the White House and as such should not be making news programming.
What has Sean Hannity paid Michael corn to hide? Affairs with Playboy bunnies or Pawn Stars? Abortions? This is the family values Republican Party of 2018 and they should be ashamed of themselves.
The way I look at this is very simple. If I go to a restaurant and I get food poisoning I don’t go back to that restaurant until I know that they have changed their methods and have remove the staff that cause this from happening in the first place. We need to vote with our Facebook accounts right now. Deactivating your Facebook account which is what Facebook calls deleting it is the only way that Facebook will change their ways.
Yesterday Mark Zuckerberg went and put out a statement on Facebook and then did an interview on CNN. In both cases he never explained how he’s going to fix the problem. Sure, he said that Facebook should be regulated, but he knows how much money Facebook gives to Congress and how much sway they have and how this regulation will be put into effect. They know the regulations will be toothless. We must deactivate our accounts and then when and only when Facebook makes the necessary changes should we go back. I deactivated my account in November and to be honest everyone I need to be in contact with has remained in contact with me. Is it hard? Yes! But marching in Selma was very very hard and very very dangerous so I don’t feel like some sort of martyr at this juncture compared to those brave people. Let’s grow up and show Facebook who’s the Boss.
I’ve said this before, the last time there was a Jared this famous it did not end well, ask Subway.
This story from the Washington Post unveils a host of issues with Jared Kushner and his position in the White House.
Let’s start with the finances. Jared Kushner owns 666 5th Avenue in the heart of Manhattan. Yes it’s the sign of the devil but we’ll go there some other time. A year from now the mortgage will balloon to 1.2 billion dollars. I don’t especially like using the word billion so let’s put it in another way it’s 1200 million dollars. Obviously he can borrow the money from his father-in-law even if his father-in-law had the money, I don’t think his father-in-law is the kind that gives money out. So he started going from bank to bank trying to sell the idea of refinancing this white elephant on Fifth Avenue. He went to the normal Banks and they all turned away so that he started going to the more let’s say Shady Financial organizations. Like Deutsche Bank, a bank whose motto should be we longer money better than your launderette. Don’t take my word for it they have been convicted on several counts of money laundering for both the mob and terrorist organizations. He’s also tried to get investment from the Chinese. It is reported that in his meeting in China last month he talked about his personal finances with foreign officials in China. And then there’s the Russians, those lovable Russians. They’ll lend money to anyone but I feel sorry if you don’t have the money to pay them back.
Now that we have all the characters laid out you can understand why Jared Kushner would be at Giant liability to this country. He knows all of the secrets that are told to the president, he owes huge amounts of money and he cannot get a security clearance.
Oh how the mighty have fallen. He was a promoter very much in the mold of 45. When the Wynn Resorts open in Las Vegas we and Los Angeles when were bombarded by had of him standing on top of his hotel. It’s a 60-story building and I’m sure they will not let him anywhere near the ledge anymore.
I am never happy when someone is in a bad place but in this case I will make an exception. This man used his position of power to hurt and harass and do all kinds of horrible things to women in the last 40 years. And to quote Ivanka Trump, there’s a special place in hell for people like him.
Even if we are to believe the polls, and I do not, these two presidential candidates are the most unpopular nominees in a generation. What has to be remembered is that people on the most part vote with the economy. If you look at the chart you’ll see that both Democrats and independents more importantly think the economy is doing well. Only Republicans think that the economy is doing badly. The Republicans live in a world of Fox News and they are told bad economic news day in Day Out. The rest of us live in the real world and see all of the cranes in the sky building new buildings in our cities, businesses opening and for the first time in a long time people are secure in their job and I truly believe they can find a better one if they wanted to. So yes right now seems a little bit dark for Hillary but people want to continue the upward trend of the economy. One would then ask why did Al Gore lose. Although I supported him and work hard on his campaign he did separate himself as much as he could from the President Clinton and more importantly President Clinton’s incredible economic Legacy. Hillary on the other hand has embraced President Obama and will have the president on the ground in key States making her case.
