Kamala Harris Is Surging and Birtherism Is Back – The Daily Beast

When Donald Trump jr. Was told that Russia wanted to give him a dirt on Hillary Clinton he said that he loved it especially this summer referring to the summer of 2016. You would think this idiot would have learned his lesson. But he has not. The first breath of birtherism around Kamala Harris and he jumps to attention. Retweeting the false allegations that the native of Oakland California is not an American.

If you thought that Trump’s birtherism was just political theater think again, it’s racism that has been demonstrated in generations of the trumps. I can only hope and pray that Barron Trump will not inherit the racist gene but I’m not too sure.

Obama World lovefest for O’Rourke is growing – TheHill

if the Democrats are going to win the White House in 2020 they must be pragmatic. I think that Beto O’Rourke would fit the mold for a lot of those people who would be uncomfortable, maybe because of their racism, with a person of color at the top of the ticket. I would love to see Carmela Harris as president but I fear that she would polarize the right into Ville coming out in voting and Rose. I believe the right learned our lesson with President Obama and have now mobilized as a feverish voting Bloc. They don’t seem to have Trump fatigue, which baffles me. So yes, a young man, a Kennedy like like figure would be a great choice.

Very unscientific polls of Democrats on Twitter have him in the lead, they don’t work checks a lot of boxes for voters. He’s fully bilingual, he is an amazing speaker and most importantly he makes you feel good when you hear him. And he also tells the truth which would be such a refreshing difference from what we have right now in the White House.

During 2004 Democratic Convention I had some friends over watching the keynote speech by then Senator Obama. After we finished I said he’s going to be our president and everyone in the room started chuckling and told me I was delusional. For some reason, I get the same feeling from Beto O’Rourke.

Hillary Clinton Is In, Bernie Sanders May Exit, and Democrats Seek Unity – NYTimes.com

It should in actuality say in the headline “Bernie Sanders should exit the race”. I believe that Bernie Sanders is a patriot. I don’t think he would have gone through the gruel of running for president if you were not. And as a patriot he understands the enormity of having Donald Trump as our president and what it would do to take our country backwards. Let’s hope that he listens to his inner angels and especially tomorrow to President Obama who I’m sure will urge him to pull out of the race and throw his support wholeheartedly towards Hillary Clinton. It’s not easy losing a campaign. Hell I ran for neighborhood Council and the whole election process was 2 months long and I was disappointed when I lost. But I didn’t ask for a recall, I just took the loss and thought about all the wonderful people that I had met during the campaign.
How many people in their sixties can say they stood in front of thousands and thousands of adoring young people yelling out their name. Bernie Sanders can say this and he should say it with his head held up high. So I hope that he will do the right thing and tomorrow after meeting with President Obama we’ll announce that he is suspending his campaign for the presidency of the United States.

The United States is a drug, and we just got Iran and Cuba hooked

image
This will put Secretary of State Kerry and President Obama in the history books

When we signed the trade agreement with China, they got hooked.
When we signed NAFTA, Mexico got hooked.
When the Soviet Union started to talk to us, they got hooked.
Cuba and Iran  now join the league of nations that are hooked on United States of America.
The culture of the United States is infectious. It’s aspirational to the rest of the world. And I am so tired of the naysayers saying that America is in at sunset years. We have a satellite the size of a grand piano orbiting Pluto all made in the USA. General Motors is about to launch a car next year that will get 200 miles on one charge and with the tax incentives will cost to consumer only $20,000!
The reason the ayatollahs sign this agreement is simply because seven thirty eight percent of the population of Iran wanted this Agreement signed. Having a ran as a frienenemy is much better than having them has a full flight enemy They want peace, and so should our leaders. Leaders who push for war or just pushing to maintain their coffers full of money from the military industrial complex.

Tentative deal reached in Iran nuclear talks – CBS News

I believe that’s tentative, is the operative word here. I’m a believer that slowing around down in this incredibly hostile environment that the Middle East is in is a step in the right direction. I understand that this may make the molas more powerful as the economy starts to improve, but not having nuclear proliferation across the Middle East will save the planet.
