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.
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.
