Mike Pence staying at Trump golf resort in Ireland despite all meetings happening on other side of country – The Independent

How do you say drink the Kool-Aid in Russian? Will Mike Pence has and I think that you can kiss his political future. He looks like someone who is suffering from Stockholm syndrome. Each time you see him standing next to Trump he looks like he’s about to do her hostage video. if you really don’t like your job would it not be the right thing to do but to quit for the sake of your country? He is obviously doing nothing to tamp down Trump’s weirdnesses.

Also, Pence almost starved people in Indiana who are on food stamps and on any kind of assistance because of his fiscal conservative nature. And here we are in 2019 watching him fly back and forth at taxpayers expense to stay at Trump’s hotel. who is reimbursing the taxpayers for this unnecessary expense? We know that Mitch McConnell is never going to be investigating this President because he’s Moscow Mich. The Democrats are basically impotent because of the stonewalling tactics of this white house so here we go again no forthright investigations into this matter. we the taxpayers have to foot the bill because this president wants his failing properties to be noticed.

How do you say emoluments clause in Russian?

No Quorum At FEC Means Election Law Enforcement Is On Hold – NPR

If 2016 has taught us anything it is that we need to reform our system of electing officials especially those on the federal level.

Unfortunately the Federal election commission is not the vehicle we need to reform our election system. It was never meant to do anything other than to whitewash problems and make them go away. It’s a toothless agency that has minimal enforcement capabilities. So the uproar this week over the fact that they no longer have a quorum to even have a meeting seems like it could be the beginning of the end but in this case it’s the beginning of the beginning. I’ve watched the chairwoman of the federal election committee go on and on on all the text shows saying that they still have staff doing the behind the scenes work necessary to maintain election integrity. Unfortunately all of this means nothing.

let’s dissect how this Federal election commission works. First the President appoints the members from both parties. That should put a giant wait a minute in your head when I said that. Yes Trump would have to appoint a democratic member to the commission. But even if there is a fork or they have very few ways of impacting a candidate that does wrong other than through fines. They can’t overturn an election results because of malfeasance has we saw in the North Carolina examples. Only the state level was able to do anything in that case. Plus when members are appointed by a president and then have to be confirmed by the Senate you’ve got too many people whose Faith’s are on the line making the decisions on who is going to be on this commission. This whole system needs an overhaul.

We’ve always hoped that the courts would be protection for our election system. Unfortunately the courts are now being spent by Mitch McConnell and I don’t see how we are going to have affair jurisprudence system for a generation since the people than Mitch McConnell or putting in or middle-aged and have lifetime appointments. Removing a judge is difficult and because they are Judges they have the power to make things go away.

I don’t think that either the Democrats or the Republicans have the backbone to reform this broken system. The only way they would be reformed is if there is a worst-case scenario but unfortunately if there is a worst-case scenario I can’t trust that the power will still be in the hands of the people and then our country might be changed forever.

Failed Russian nuclear test hints at Putin’s dangerous plans to beat U.S. defenses – NBC News

We had a treaty with Russia to keep them and us from developing nuclear missiles. This was called the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Our stable genius in the White House tore it up last year.

So here we are with Russia building missiles that actually spew nuclear radiation. And we can thank our stable genius for that.

Chernobyl in the sky, what a wonderful headline that could mean the end of the Earth as we know it.

Remarks by President Trump at Turning Point USA’s Teen Student Action Summit 2019 – The White House {and how he lied about something that makes him look so small}

This is the first time I’ve ever posted anything from the Trump White House. I am posting it because this is a White House that puts out lies on a daily basis. Some of them are big and some of them are so small that they point out what a tiny man tRUMP is.

this is a speech that most people have heard about if they’ve heard about it because of the mistakein the presidential seal that Trump spoke in front of for an hour and 15 minutes. Some idiot who is now fired was lazy and found the seal online on a website that mocks Trump by selling T-shirts. Briefly the seal hadreplaced the eagle with the double headed hawk from the Russian federation flag. It had replaced the 13 Spears in its talons withgolf clubs that the designer said were specifically tiny to fit into tiny hands that the president has. The other talent was filled with cash replacing olive branches and of course the one that everybody knows is the e pluribus Unum 1 was replaced by the Spanish words he is a puppet.

Now that we’ve had our laughhere Comes what’s really serious wrong with this presidency. during the course of the speech he talked about going to the military academy for the graduation hand he said that he decided to shake every hands, was descriptive in thefact that he said it was very hot and there were Eleven hundred people that he should hands with. He said that he askedif out of the presidents did the same and was told that most of them only stay for 15 minutes and go away. That’s an outright lie. President Obama and President George w bush all went to every military academy graduation because they are the commander-in-chief and shook hands with every single graduate. Why the base those who were in the office before you to make yourself look bigger I guess that’s because you’re very very small.

Chris Wallace presses Stephen Miller on ‘send her back’ chant at Trump rally – TheHill

I’m not calling Stephen Miller a Neo-Nazi but other neo-nazis think that he is a Neo-Nazi.

I’m not sure why they put Stephen Miller on the firing line with an interviewer like Chris Wallace who will not hold back. Is he falling out of grace? I don’t think so, I think they do this to show strength against the backlash of sentiments against the words in that infamous tweet saying that if the congresswomen were not happy they should go back to the countries they came from.

I don’t believe that the chant was organic in nature. If it had been organic in nature it would have been send them back just like the tweet but instead it said send her back because they knew saying send them back was not defendable. I’ve been in rallies and experienced how a crowd behaves, It was easy for the Trump campaign to plant a few people in the crowd to start the chant that they wanted and not the one the crowd wanted to start with. Not that asking a sitting member of Congress, a naturalized American citizen to go back to her country is okay, let’s not forget that Melania Trump came from Slovenia, with a genius Visa, overstayed that visa and now is first lady. A terrible one at that.

It turns out that Trump does have a campaign strategy for 2020 and that strategy is dividing the country as much as possible. I think he’s looking for a repeat of the summer of 1968. That was an ugly time in the United States and that Convention in Miami Beach for the Democrats was why we have in historya President Nixon as opposed to a president Hubert Humphrey.

Stephen Miller reminds me of Paul Joseph Goebbels, the propaganda Minister for adults Hitler. The man was very violently anti-semitic and was instrumental in the death of over eight million Jews.

Take the uniform off and you’ve got Stephen Miller.

The Wikipedia page says is best :

The ironic thing is that Stephen Miller is Jewish and should know better. But I guess racism is a disease that infiltrates the mind and does not see religion, color of the skin, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.

I’m not looking forward to the next five hundred or so days. It’s going to be an ugly time in our country hope and pray that we will survive Trump.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham Reportedly Involved in Scuffle With North Korean Security at DMZ – Newsweek

I am all for peace. But capitulating 2 strongman dictator that killed his own people and gets a much-needed photo op with the president of the United States that I do not condone. Illustrative of the fact that this illegitimate ruler of North Korea is not good people is the way his military true YouTube our press. There is no freedom of the press in North Korea and they wanted nothing of what America stands for within the demilitarized zone.

I wish the current occupant of the White House witch spend as much time with Iranian officials. We had a perfectly good denuclearization plan with Iran but Trump tore it up because it was something that President Obama did. It seems that anything that President Obama did Trump is jealous of whether it be a ranian denuclearization, the affordable Care act or more importantly the Paris climate Accord.

Let’s hope this new press secretary at the White House will continue in defending freedom of the press when she gets back to the White House the same way she did in North Korea.

Donald Trump Bows to Xi Jinping’s Huawei Demands at G20 in Osaka, Japan – The Daily Beast

Tired of all this winning yet?

the reason that this company was put on the do not buy from list and on the US side is because it is a spying organization for the Chinese government. There seemingly benign cell phones have built-in back doors so that the Chinese government can listen in on your conversations. The Chinese government others who are looking to influence the United States and its population have several of these kind of schemes working as we speak. It’s well-known that the Chinese government is using grndr, the gay dating app, to find out information about people in the US that they hope to hold over them.

So once again Trump caves. He’s not a negotiator he’s a caver. He puts these tariffs down I’m countries not understanding that terrorists are paid by the American consumers. When he’s in face-to-face negotiations with ar foes he caves. Look what he did with put in yesterday, when asked if he would ask Putin not to meddle in our elections in 2020 he laughed it off. He’s not a leader, and he should not be within a thousand miles of the oval Office but unfortunately he resides in it.

Warren takes aim at Pence: He’s not a ‘decent’ man – TheHill

I beg to differ with vice president Joe Biden and his assessment of Mike Pence being a decent guy. Decent people do not point out groups of individuals for hatred and discrimination. under his regime in Indiana the lgbtqi community suffered greatly. He and his wife believe in trying to cure homosexuals from their homosexuality. That is absurd. It’s just a political ploy to give himself more power. He’s not a decent man and anyone who thinks he is is not worthy to be the President of the United States.

And this is something that seems to be forgotten by the media. When Chris Christie was fired from the Trump transition Mike Pence took over. Mike Pence was there and he said nothing about all the Russians that were running around the transition. He said nothing about the hundred and fifty Russians at the inaugural. He said nothing because he knew what was going on and he is just as crooked as Trump.

Trump Slams Russia Investigation And Green New Deal At CPAC – NPR

If it wasn’t CPAC I would think they were all on drugs, on second thought maybe they are.

Between railing about the green New deal and how they’re going to take away our cheeseburgers, SUVs and for God’s sakes airplanes they had a clown come to the show.

Unfortunately the clown is the President of the United States.

They are so outside of the mainstream of American thought that it has become akin to going to a NRA convention. both organizations are outside of the mainstream of American soft, both organizations have people desperately clinging onto power for power’s sake and both organizations should be dismantled.

and there are people out there that are buying this Hook Line & sinker. I’ve got to put in a little word hear about Joe Biden’s comment that Mike Pence is a decent guy. to me it is indicative of the fact that Joe Biden should not be the nominee of the democratic party. Mike Pence is not a decent guy, Mike Pence hates the lgbtqi community and Mike Pence was in charge of the transition. You can tell me that the governor of Indiana comes to Washington and sees all these Russians running around and doesn’t ask a single question. It’s not believable and therefore it can’t be true.

Only six immigrants in terrorism database stopped by CBP at southern border in first half of 2018 – NBC News

Are we going to let fascism take root in our country? I say no.

Call your representative and tell them that you want the Democrats to have a response to this man’s lies tomorrow after the speech.

Call your local TV stations and tell them not to cover his speech. when President Obama wanted to make a speech in 2014 regarding immigration all four networks denied it. It’s time that the network’s stand up to this man’s lies.

Boycott his speech. make sure that your cable box is tuned to a channel that will not be carrying it. Let’s not make him feel important because he gets good ratings and you know how this is important in this idiot’s head.

This is a call to action. Act as if the future of our country depends on it, it does.
