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.
I keep hearing that the nomination and Confirmation process for Supreme Court nominees has become very polarizing. What I don’t hear is the fact that the Republican Party put oil on that partisan Fire by not even allowing a member of the Republican Senate to visit with Merrick Garland who was rightly nominated by President Obama. So calls for a Slowdown in this process and a rush to judgment to get this unfit nominee into a lifetime appointment is a travesty. The Senate used to be a place of allegiant consideration and now it is a thunder dome.
let’s take things slowly, it is a lifetime appointment and he is only 53 I don’t think waiting a few weeks for him to get on the Supreme Court is going to matter that much. First let’s start with an FBI investigation. Lying to the FBI is a crime. Ask that was already going to jail for lying to the FBI in the special council’s investigation of Russian collusion by the Trump for president campaign. Once we have a report by the FBI which to take no longer than a week or 10 days then we should have ordered and thoughtful hearings as to whether or not these allegations hold enough Merit to keep this man out of the Supreme Court. This is not a court of law. This does not have to be by no Reasonable Doubt. Ask Senator Al Franken about Reasonable Doubt.
Don Jr may very well be the downfall of Don senior. Don Jr never thinks before talking. He has been an embarrassment to his family. And now he is going to cause the downfall of the Trump Administration.
you add in the fact that he is cost the American taxpayers over half a million dollars in Secret Service protection solely for his personal use. He went on a trip to the Middle East to open a new Trump property and that cost the Secret Service $258, 000 then he went on a trip to Paris to to show off to his ex wife that he still was a man and that cost the US taxpayer $250, 000. It’s amazing to me how the supposedly fiscally responsible Republicans are wasting money like it’s going out of style. The people benefiting are the very rich on the backs of the very poor.
It seems that someone has grown the semblance of a spine. Paul Ryan has doggedly supported all of Trumps bad behavior. Finally he is saying things that are reasonable.
This means there is no Witch Hunt.
I believe when Trump said that he can pardon himself he crossed a line. The justice system is very clear no one can judge themselves. We are not in a monarchy we are in a constitutional government run by three branches.
Trump thinks he’s King and there’s going to be a time when there will be a metaphorical “Off with the head”, and I hope soon.
I am a blogger, and I am in no way a reporter. So what I say is purely speculation. But I can see in my head what must have happened in the minutes as the feds swarms into Michael Collins offices and homes. Shredding of documents must have been frenetic. So it’s not much of a surprise that the federal authorities are having problems putting the shredded materials back together. Unfortunately for Michael corn, who by the way is a terrible attorney, the federal government has Apple resources back together shredded documents. A good attorney would never have documents that needed to be shredded before a federal raid.
The Trump Administration has not drained the swamp but they have brought in the Clowns.
Michael Kahn and Rudy Giuliani what an incredible pair to have as your personal attorneys. You would think that a self-described multi-billionaire could afford the best attorneys on the planet. I wonder how long this new White House attorney for the special counsel, the same attorney that worked on the Clinton impeachment, he’s going to last? Good attorneys don’t stay with bad clients.
Which brings me to the clowns, Michael Cohen and Rudy Giuliani. The FBI and the justice department run by Republicans would not put in a tap on a phone of the personal attorney of the president of the United States if there was not a very very good reason to do so. Even Rudy Giuliani and his television Fox News appearances has said that Michael Kahn was a fixer and that Rudy Giuliani and his past dubious legal career has also done the same kind of thing. Most attorneys that I know don’t consider themselves fixers, they are professionals who abide by a code of ethics. Something that is completely foreign to this White House.
Would someone please explain to me what in God’s name has happened to the grand old party? This is the party that stood for Law and Order and family values. Now it stands for Russian collusion and a complete disregard of the American fabric and quilt that makes up our great country. If you thought that citizens united would not have a major impact on our political system I guess we now know that it has. Money and its corrosive corruptive impact is now turning one of the great put a local parties of our country into a cowering and colluding force. Money talks and BS walks is the motto of the Republican party now.
There are so many analogies that can be used here. Whether it be the Scorpion riding on the back of a frog or the drowning man who pulls his Rescuer Down Under with him, 45 is pulling the Republican Party under with him and I believe that this is going to have repercussions on this party for Generations. This is unlike what happened in Watergate because in Watergate it was one man who was corrupt. Now we have not only the president’s but his whole party becoming part of this conspiracy. I am not and have never been a conspiracy theorist but why is Russia never spoken about in this White House?
Yesterday, amidst all The Barrage of information that comes out from this White House one little piece went unnoticed by the General Public. 45 has decided that 500 members of Congress and his signature means nothing because he announced that he will not be pursuing the sanctions that Congress has put upon the Russians for what they did to our elections in 2016. So when you hear no collusion no collusion no collusion coming out of 45 mouth know deep down in your heart he is a liar.
The FBI director has an agenda. Even in his so-called report exonerating Secretary Clinton he went on to criticize her 4 things which your normal routine happenings in the state department at the time. I know that the FBI director has a 10-year term but I hope that this will force this man to resign. He has darkened the FBI badge with his dishonor.
The two players in this game of Espionage are China and Russia. Donald Trump owes Millions to China and has some weird love affair with President Putin in Russia. So if there’s going to be some raking of the election it’s going to be in Donald Trump favor. I’m not a conspiracy theorist but when the FBI says they’re worried I get worried. I think that Trump has been stoking the fire bring the elections so that when it happens he will look less likely to be a culprit.
Traitor Trump In Cahoots with Putin is now going to be under investigation. I wonder what it feels like to have the FBI investigating behavior that is treasonous. His tweet is the example of someone who is protesting too much. I think that there will be a direct link between Putin and Trump campaign working together to undermine the Democrats. That this came out the day before the Democratic Convention is not coincidence. Putin wants his crony and admire Trump in the White House. Trump plans to undermine NATO something that Putin would relish as he gobbles up the rest of what used to be the Soviet Union through military action.
My friend Diane Raucher sent me this article. But I have been a fan of the redneck liberal since the first time I saw one his one of his videos on YouTube several months ago. He is witty comma funny but most importantly convincing. Please watch some of his greatest hits on YouTube. You will not only get a laugh but you also get an education on how a lot of people think in places where we think people think one way. Trae is a family man with all the same worries that we have. And he sees the world through a clear lens that lets him see both realities. I cannot urge you enough to go and check out his videos. And again thank you to my friend Diane for prompting this blog post.
