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.
You hear the word Patriot and you think of something old-fashioned. Or some people think of football, but I think about country over party. When I was a kid and I was against what the Democratic president was doing in Vietnam I protested. I have basically voted straight democratic but I have eyes and ears and if my party was doing the things that the Republican party is doing right now I would jump ship.
So we see people like George Conway and judge Napolitano spit starting to speak out.Republican senator Richard Burr sent out a full subpoena to Don Jr because the Mueller report says that Don Jr refuse to answer questions but that there were questions in their minds as to whether or not he had lied to Congress. He lied to Congress the Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. These little cracks in the Fox network will start making larger and larger fissures because this is not sustainable. watching a president dismantle our country, put the worst people into positions and attack his opponent is not America it’s the dictatorship that Trump wants to create.
Let us not forget who we’re dealing with here. This is the guy who is friends with the guy that murdered an American journalist and then cut him up into pieces. have we ever heard a single disparaging remark about Muhammad Bin Salman from the Trump White House?
My favorite is watching Secretary of State pompeo testifying all regarding the Jared Kushner Middle East peace plan.when asked when we will see this peace plan he refused to give a timeframe and said it could take as long as 10 years. I’m hoping in 10 years we don’t hear Trump’s name everyday because he’ll be in jail with his son-in-law.
How convenient that he’s pooping the fact that Russians make sure that his father-in-law got into the White House. Russia if you’re listening please look into Jared kushner’s emails, as if they would ever since they have their guy in the White House and Putin is so happy.
The last time we had a Jared this famous it didn’t end well, ask Subway sandwiches.
What some people will do for just a little bit of attention. Let’s not forget this is the same Romney who went begging for the job of Secretary of State and was made to look like a fool by the current occupant of the White House.
you could tell him this picture that Trump was going to screw with Romney. You would think that Romney would become a thorn in Trump’s side. Sure he makes these kind of statements that he is shocked at his actions but he vote with Trump even when it means voting to lift sanctions against Russian oligarchs.
Romney is no Patriot he is an opportunist.
A true patriot would say that he would go along with the articles of impeachment that are so so needed against this criminal president.
Yes, I am a partisan Democrat and very proud of that. When my dad came to this country he saw which side was good and talk me the same.
Republicans win because they cheat. Democrats lose because they’re good at it.
I have watched a litany of amazing people who ran for president and did not win because Republicans cheat
Let’s start with Nixon, Hubert Humphrey was the vice president under Lyndon Baines Johnson and would have been a wonderful president of the United States but Nixon had to cheat it’s called Watergate.
George McGovern who ran in 1972 and who received my first vote in a presidential election. He ran against Nixon cheats.
After the Fall From Grace that Nixon suffered Gerald Ford immediately pardon him when he became president. A move I’m sure that Mike Pence would emulate in a second if he got to be president. Jimmy Carter 1 in 1976 when the United States needed a change from all of this cheating.
But never fear Ronald Reagan came to the scene and went and negotiated behind Jimmy Carter’s back to release the Iranian hostages. he made Jimmy Carter look weak and one of the best presidents we ever had lost in his re-election bid. You all know Jimmy Carter has one of the most amazing ex-presidents who even had his current age is building homes for the needy.
Al Gore won the election against George W Bush, but the Republicans cheat and because of the mess that the State of Florida is we got the wrong man to be president and we got to Wars that we still are in because of that. Think about what an Al Gore presidency would have done for our planet, instead of making videos he would have been able to actually make policy that would have reversed climate change in time for all of what’s happening right now not to have happened.
In 2004 John Kerry a military hero was Swift boated by the cheating Republicans and made to look like a deserter. This is coming from a president who had never done anything except to avoid military service. George W Bush came from a family of military service but he had nothing to do with it.
They try to cheat against President Obama but he was good and he had moderately honorable opponents.
Which takes us to present day and the cheater in Chief who currently occupies the White House. He colluded with Russians, wikileak, and anyone else he could get to cheat himself into the White House.
so it’s not surprising that tomorrow when the Mueller report comes out they would have already cheated. They are going to try to eclipse the Mueller Report with news coverage of their own but the American people are smarter than that and I think they’re going to see through it.
Always remember Republicans win because they cheat.
Attorney General William Barr should be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life because he can look at history books and see. Attorney General Mitchell went to jail for what he did for Nixon during Watergate. May William Barr suffer the same fate.
Here’s a hypothetical. An acquaintance calls you and tells you that he has information on how to rob a bank. What do you say? Yeah, that’s great just as long as there’s lots of money or it’s illegal. That was the choice that the Trump campaign had but as we know from the infamous email Donald Trump jr. said “I love it, if it has dirt on Hillary Clinton”.
I have heard all the excuses made by supporters of trump. They say that the campaign was not a polished organization. It was filled with political operatives. If a Russian calls and tell someone that they want to give information red flags should start flying in front of your eyes. It seems that Donald Trump jr. Did not understand or just is a crook but in any case ignorance of the law does not excuse you.
I have a couple of things to say here. First and foremost, ignorance of the law does not excuse you from the law. The defense that is being melted for Donald Trump Jr is that he didn’t know it was against the law to get opposition research from a foreign country. I am not a politician but if a foreign adversary came to me while I was running a campaign the first thought would be to go to the FBI and not to say I love it. They keep saying that collusion is not a crime. Yes there is no statute that uses the word collusion. But collusion describes a series of events that lead to getting into a crime.
But what’s more telling is the fact that this President is seemingly throwing his son under the bus. the reason that Rudy Giuliani doesn’t want Trump to have an interview with the special counsel is because he knows he’s going to lie. This tweet clearly states that he knew nothing about it but we know that this man is a stickler for details and would not have had a meeting during his campaign that he did not know about of this importance.Granted he has the pardon power and granted his supporters will forgive anything from this president but unfortunately for this President his hardcore supporters are about 30 to 35% of the population, not enough to win an election.
As an aside, it’s ironic how all of these Republicans who I could not stomach listening to, including Ruth Marcus, have now come out against this president. It is heartening that they understand the country security is more important than anyone presidency. I just wish members of Congress that have an R next to their name would grow a spine and start defending our country and The Oaf they swore. unfortunately, I believe the prospect of the elimination of the capital gains tax is more important to them then our country’s security. Capitals gains tax is levied on mostly very rich people and that’s their donor base.
One time, and this one time only, I will agree with Rudy Giuliani about something. Michael Cohen is a liar. he is a liar that is trying his hardest to keep himself out of jail. What the good America’s mayor forgot to say was that a few weeks ago Giuliani himself said that Michael corn was a good man. A good man is not a liar or do I have my definitions mixed up?
I truly hope that the headline of this story is what happens in the end. But one thing that is never spoken about is the fact that Mike Pence, yes mr. Clean cut vice president, was in charge of the transition. And as such he must have known about Flynn, the Russians, and all of the other Shenanigans going on in those horrendous months between the election and the inauguration of the 45th president. So who will take over from Trump if Mike Pence is also implicated? And that’s why we need to have Democratic house in November. Because next in line is the speaker of the house and not the Secretary of State as so many believe. And can you imagine a president Jim Jordan? Alright enough nightmares for today.
Of course the the Supreme Court choice of trump once nothing more than to have the special counsel disappear. So it makes all the sense in the world that the accused Russians involved our siding Supreme Court nominee Kavanagh in their bid to get out of the crimes they committed. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh would be a blight on our judicial system and would remove rights from minorities, immigrants, lgbtq, pro-choice and the list goes on and on.
How did we get a man who has no vision to become the president of the United States? This article talks about a project that Trump planned on being his legacy. Instead it’s a massive failure. Never happened. Remind you of anything?
He is hurting us into a recession, a trade War leading to a economic depression just the things that Hitler used to divide the world into factions that created World War II. Millions died unnecessarily and we as Americans must make sure that he does not get a chance to do this toour country.
Trade wars between allies are unnecessary. That’s why they are our allies. What Trump wants us to be allied with Russia and not with the UK, Canada and the EU. I truly believe he wants to be president for life. I truly believe that he thinks he can create a royal presidency. I truly believe that he thinks that either Ivanka or Jared can take over from him. He looks at North Korea as his model for how he wants United States history to continue. This is a scary time for America and Americans and we must go out and vote. We must donate as much money as we can afford two political parties we believe in. With the likes of citizens united the Koch brothers and those who are aligned with Trump will be pouring billions into elections along with the help of Russia. Give $5 today to the Democratic party and do so each month. Give more if you can.
First and foremost let’s stop calling it Spygate. That’s what 45 wants us to call it and there is no spy and there is no gate. There is a Russia and there is a gate and there for Russia gate. I spy is someone who is put into somewhere as a means of getting information. An informant is someone who sees something that is suspicious and tells the authorities. Here we have an informant not a spy. And until we stop using the stupid word spy because the idiot in the White House thinks that it has good television sound let’s call it what it is Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russians. If his homeland security secretary has not read up on what the intelligence agencies have said, they have said that the Russians helped Trump win the election and did everything in their power to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And the discussion now let’s on to impeachment.
