My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, 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.
Since my teenage years, and I am 65, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been a thorn in the side of the world. I remember when they formed OPEC and then shut off the fuel supply to the United States. I remember standing in lines trying to get to my college classes type of hat the gas needed to get me there. They have been bad players from the beginning and they continue to be so. They are cruel to their people and let them live in poverty even though the royal family lives in luxury that most of us cannot even comprehend.
Let us not forget Mohammed bin Salman, the current Prince of Saudi Arabia ordered the murder of an American journalist, we will not forget khashoggi.
And so now in order to start a pot Saudi Arabia says that Iran definitely sponsored this attack on their oil facilities. Were they a name sponsor or just one that wanted to be in the credits? They can’t point to Iran as the launcher of the missiles because they were launched from Iraq granted Iran has a lot of reasons to do this to Saudi Arabia but it is not enough of a reason for us to jump into a war once again in the middle East and make more generations hate us well into the future.
this is hard for me to say because I really despise them haven’t but Trump is actually doing the more measured in response to this incident. we have oil reserves in the United States that are kept specifically for this kind of strategic need. Trust me the Saudi Arabian government is going to use all its wealth to rebuild a refined race. And in the meantime do United States is going to make some extra much-needed dollars on the foreign trade front.
The Saudi Arabians are well-known to say they will fight with a ran with the last American soldier’s blood.we have sent him so much in military prowess why aren’t they using it themselves? Why are they doing a proxy war in Yemen? Why do they want the United States to shed blood of our soldiers before they even put their toe into the pool?
The world right now is a tinderbox and resembles what history has shown us the world look like prior to Major Wars. I know I don’t have the appetite for a war and I am sure that the majority of the American people do not as well. If Benjamin netanyahu is actually taken out of office and Israel I see a little bit of the marched War slowing down because we might finally have a breath of fresh air from an election.
Talk about being conflicted, Trump is the most conflicted individual that ever has been in the White House and I include Andrew Jackson in that comparison. To say that the former FBI director is conflicted and that he has 17 Democrats is a lie. And if Democrats are angry it’s because we have a sham of a man in the White House. This liar in Chief needs to go and all the rain in the world could not stop them from spewing his hatred out. Rudy Giuliani should go out to pasture because he’s doing no good to this president. I never like Rudy Giuliani even when he was called America’s mayor. He was never my mayor.
I don’t think the Paul manafort plea deal is what is stirring the hatred in the White House. I think that it’s the fact that Michael Cohen Trump’s personal attorney is singing Like a Bird to the prosecutors. when Trump says that Paul manafort was a part of his campaign for 49 days it’s a lie but he was only part of the campaign for a little bit over 5 months. And yes he knows about what happened in the infamous Trump Tower meeting. He also until yesterday owned a condo in Trump Tower on the 27th floor. but Michael Cohen on the other hand knows all the dirt and he can put Jared Kushner, DonnyJunior, and Ivanka in jail.
The hatred coming out of this White House is spreading. I just read a story that a a National Guard member helping the victims of the hurricane use the white power salute to a reporter that was covering the disaster. This man in the White House is not just a liar in Chief, he’s the divider in Chief.
Can we say circular firing squad? The administration is fighting with itself over and over again. Now it’s the beleaguered EPA administrator attacking the Secretary of the Interior, I am sure we all wish of the calm days of President Obama.
President Trump said he would drain the swamp instead he brought in the Clowns.
Wendy us Chamber of Commerce attacks are Republican President you know things are going off the rails in the White House.
I can understand why the White House last week had a press conference but redefined press conference has all it was was a ramble from Trump and no questions from the Press. When questions from the Press are asked of this President he lies, there’s no other way to describe it. Yesterday was and barrage of Lies. I love the one where he said he was the toughest presidents on Russia and said that everyone else agreed about it and said look at them nodding yes. No one in the room was nodding yes. It is so embarrassing to watch this man deface the Office of the President United States.
The reason for the statement from the US Chamber of Commerce his of course Amazon and Jeff Bezos. Jeff Bezos owns Amazon and Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post but they are not related. The Washington Post has said that Jeff Bezos does not have input on editorial content. Further the post office said that day find the business relationship they have with Amazon to be lucrative and not a money-losing proposition as the president miss stated in his press conference. Enough of these lies, they don’t stop. The Washington Post fact-checker said that he lies about 7 times a day. If President Obama had lied 7 times in a year the Republicans would have been calling for impeachment. This kind of behavior is not what we expect from the White House
Let’s face it, the Republican National Convention put together by Donald Trump was a fiasco. It spewed hatred for so many people that it’s hard to list. It had the feeling of a political rally in a Banana Republic where those who are the dissidents and this agree with the dictator are killed. The has been c-list celebrities and people whose views are so far away from the mainstream of America that they sounded like they were from another planet. All this was created by Donald Trump. And then he crowned it all on the day after the convention with this attack on one of his rivals.
I’m watching Hillary introduce Tim Kaine as her VP pick. What a difference between him and Mike Pence. One person goals and work for the people the other put his foot down on the people. The choice is clear and we need to be steadfast until November and make sure that we don’t deviate from supporting and donating to Hillary’s campaign and especially making sure that everyone we know goes out and vote.
It seems that Newt Gingrich is upset that he was not chosen to be Donald Trump’s running mate. In the chaos in suing the attack in the south of France he thinks that if he makes provocative statements like this perhaps Donald Trump will change his mind. The man is actually campaigning for vice president. On his Facebook page he went on about how much more qualified he was then my pants. He said that he had a national recognition and audience where’s my pants was wholly from the Midwest. This is rather pathetic. It is indicative of the state of the GOP in 2016. Newt Gingrich, when he has Speaker of the House, closed down the government an impeached President Clinton laid the groundwork for what’s happening in 2016 20 years later.
I don’t want the Republican party to disappear. I want the Republican party to get back on its mens and become a center-right party and not this extreme right party with demagogues as its nominee.
For the last few weeks I have been using the hashtag Trump lies matter, in this article Trump lies revealed. Everything he said about Hillary in his “Crooked Hillary ” speech is a lie. Step by step USA Today takes Trump apart. Everything he said about Hillary was a lie, pants on fire lie, Donald Trump wants to repeat Lies over and over again until they become the truth. We must make sure that our friends and family know that these are lies and articles like this one and USA Today is great ammunition for us. #TrumpLiesMatter AVB http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/06/23/fact-check-trump-attack-clinton-character/86271014/
The article says that Hillary Clinton is looking for an attack dog for her vice-presidential nomination. I resent that for two reasons. One Hillary Clinton is looking for someone who can take over from her, sure there’s going to be some politics involved but I think she looks for the country’s best interests first. Second to call Elizabeth Warren and attack dog is belittling. I think she can do a great job from the sidelines just as she’s proved over the weekend with Goofy Trump. Let’s keep the fight going for 6 months and make sure that this mad man gets nowhere near the White House. AVB http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/10/us/politics/elizabeth-warren-donald-trump.html
Sanders’ electability argument is still a myth. It’s the same argument that can be said for John Kasich electability no one really knows them. Once the Trump campaign starts showing ads about Bernie Sanders spending his honeymoon in moscow’s Red Square during the Cold War, at the height of the Cold War, people won’t want to vote for him. Hillary Clinton has been vetted almost all her life. There will be no surprises here. And this FBI investigation is a bunch of BS. Our current Secretary of Defense admitted last month that he had a private server in his house until last month and no one’s talking about putting him under investigation because it’s not illegal and he’s not running for president. It’s time for Bernie Sanders to pick a vice president running mate and leave the race 6 days later. He can take a page from Ted Cruz’s play book.
