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.

Trump Inauguration Spending Under Criminal Investigation by Federal Prosecutors – WSJ

Yesterday Michael Cohen in his court appearance said that he was very sad that he had been taken into the grips of a famous land developer who eventually became president. I think that’s President Trump is going to be very sorry that he fell into the grips of a bad lawyer who recorded everything and now is pointing the barrel right at this Administration.

President Obama’s first inaugural hat a much larger crowd and spent half the money of the Trump inaugural. take into consideration that there were no famous names except for perhaps kid Rock, to have to make arrangements for one wonders where the money went. please understand that inaugural are not a one-off kind of deal. There is a company and Washington that does these inaugural every 4 years and their numbers are basically flat. Where did all the money go? Why were there so many Russians at the inauguration? Why was Michael Flynn texting during the inaugural that the sanctions against Russia we’re going to be dropped?

I find it fascinating that it’s Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street journal that is reporting on this. Trump has had to make some real enemies for them to be doing this to a conservative like president.

I trust that’s there are enough people and the justice department of good moral fiber and will that will get to the bottom of this. And I’m not saying that I’m clairvoyant, but it’s starting to feel alot like Watergate.

Breaking: U.S. climate report warns of dire changes by 2050 – POLITICO

The idiot in Chief in the White House who is only concerned with his uneducated base and his corporate overlords. it’s like he doesn’t have a 13 year old son that is going to be impacted by climate change. But as he said in the interview with Fox when they ask them what his process for making decisions were and he replied I don’t have one. This completely illustrates his horrendous 2 years and the White House, no thought process.

Michael Avenatti arrested by LAPD on suspicion of domestic violence – Los Angeles Times

I was a fan of Michael avenatti until he screwed up the Supreme Court confirmation process and broth someone who would not at the end of the day truly be a victim of Brett Kavanaugh. I truly believe that he made professor Ford’s testimony have less weight because of the fact that was a false accuser. Whether or not he’s guilty of this is not for me to decide

Trump’s FEMA chief under investigation over use of official cars – POLITICO

What’s most surprising to me is that Trump supporters at his rallies still scream drain the swamp. How many of his appointees have to be proved corrupt before these people realize that the swamp is growing and overtaking our government.

I don’t support this man and I hope with all of my fiber that he does not win the senate seat in Florida but surprisingly Rick Scott actually went against Trump today and said that there were actually 3,000 people that died in the aftermath of hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. He called out the president in a tweet. Rick Scott two months before an election going against the president is incredibly surprising and is very telling of how this presidency is losing support.

Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now by Jaron Lanier – The Guardian

I have been telling anyone who will listen to me how my life has become happier since I deleted my Facebook account on November 11th of 2017. It started a whole series of events including opening up my social life I am back to the weight that I should be at and wearing the same as I did when I was 32 at 64 is pretty good. But beyond that the hatred that was everywhere on Facebook is no longer in my life. When I don’t like something on television I change the channel. I don’t like Facebook anymore so I deleted my account. Sure, family and friends are annoyed at me and think that I’m being obstinate. But if I’m anything I’m a man of my principles and my principles tell me that I need to get out of Facebook and so should you.

Their new campaign telling us that they’re changing so that Facebook becomes what it was meant to be is only there to stop the Hemorrhage of users that are deleting their accounts. Their stock price has tanked and is not recovering. I’m hoping that Facebook is the next Myspace or even better Friendster, and it will disappear into the Dust heap of terrible ideas.

LISTEN: How Michael Cohen Protects Trump By Making Legal Threats – NPR

Why does a respectable businessman need a fixer? Well he or she doesn’t, but Donald Trump is no respectable businessman. He is right there with the corleones and his mob like way of doing business. So having Michael Cohen as is conciliary is not so weird.

The problem is now he is the president of the United States. And he’s brought his mob like tactics to the White House. No one has ever done this not even Richard Nixon. This is Despicable and hopefully our country can survive this abomination in the White House.

Michael Cohen, a personal lawyer for President Trump, leaves federal court in New York City in April. His legal troubles may test his loyalty to Trump, built over years of protecting his boss, in part by using legal threats.

Behind the chaos: Office that vets { THE BEST PEOPLE} Trump appointees plagued by inexperience – The Washington Post

Trump supporters, and by inference the American people, were promised the best people.

Instead we got a clown car full of the most inept individuals ever to work in a White House. The true Republicans that we see now on MSNBC criticizing this White House are right. Those Republicans who stay quiet or support the machination of this White House are traitors. Some may say the traitors is a harsh word for partisanship but we are watching the dismantling of the US government and it seems that it’s being guided from the Kremlin. All the policies of this Administration has helped the Kremlin. The trade Wars, the appointments, and the continuous fear of War looming on our country is exactly what the Kremlin wants.

Russia has the 29th largest economy in the world. Just to put this into perspective California has the fifth largest. Russia’s military is basically gone other than four people. Their Navy and Airforce is no longer what we think of as the Soviet Union’s powerful Strike Force. Russia can only real Power by having influence over the president of United States in a way that is sickening.

So that’s when we see the office that vets future candidates is filled with 24 year old campaign operatives and volunteers and is fraction of the size from any other White House we understand why we see this clown car happening everyday. From the Secretary of the Interior writing into his office on a horse on the first day to his $116,000 set of 3 Doors. Or the Secretary of Hud ordering a $31,000 dining set, seemingly doesn’t know about Ikea. Or the one that hits me the most is the head of the EPA having a soundproof booth in his office, does he think he is Get Smart? Why does the EPA need to have a soundproof booth?

We did not get the best people instead we got the swamp on steroids.

ICE spokesman resigns, citing fabrications by agency chief, Sessions about Calif. immigrant arrests – The Washington Post

I have been on this planet almost 64 years. I have seen lots and lots of administrations come and go. But I’ve never seen one that lies to the American people this way. It’s continuous it’s never-ending and it comes from every branch of the administration. I am so tired of hearing about the lies that this White House puts out every day through its so-called press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And now has a resident of California I am absolutely Furious about the fact that they’ve been lying about undocumented criminals in our state. This has prompted the resignation of their spokesperson at ICE because he could not keep putting out these lies. Enough is enough this is a treasonous Administration that counts house to Russia and now we need to get rid of them. I have not said the impeachment word in my blog yet but I’m ready to say that now.

GOP Told by Judge to Turn Over Any Trump Poll-Watching Deals – Bloomberg Politics

For decades now the Republican party has had to abide by rules set down by a consent decree. They were caught cheating and up to their old tricks of voter suppression. The court found this so outrageous that they mandated behavior for the Republican Party. This mandated Behavior was meant to expire in July of next year. Donald Trump has changed all of the Dynamics and is going to make it harder for the Republicans in the future to try to suppress the vote. The Democrats have Ben too easy to turn the other cheek and because of that they have lost in places where they should have won. It’s good to see the Democrats standing up for our rights and making sure that every voter can go to the pole and not worry that they will be obstructed or harassed.
