{OUCH} Trump to Hannity: You’re ‘Not Really’ a Patriot, You Just Want ‘Great Ratings’ – The Daily Beast

Words between one showman to another. Honestly Hannity is not a reporter and Trump is not really a President. Did you see how Trump had the ABC crew we retake his answer when his chief of staff Mulvaney started coughing? I’m getting tired of saying this but can you imagine if President Obama have done that?

I feel like we’re living in The Truman Show. Each day we’re asailed by one scandal after another. Today we find out that the nominee to be the Secretary of Defense hid that his son beat his ex-wife with a bat from the FBI and the Senate. We have a potential nominee to be the UN ambassador who as ambassador to Canada was at her home in the United States more than in Canada. It just doesn’t stop and it’s getting very tiresome. I don’t know how this country is going to recover from this nightmare. Steve Bannon wanted to destroy our government, he’s planted the seeds to do that. I worry that this fake president will not leave office if he loses he said so. He also said that he would not leave if he was impeached although I don’t think he understands what a piece of it is. Honestly I don’t think he understands impeachment for the life of him. For stable genius he’s quite an idiot and a moron, not my words those words came from his former Secretary of State and his former Chief of Staff.

We are living in an acting presidency. The word acting is in front of most of the members of his cabinet. And those who don’t have acting in front of their name are under investigation for one impropriety or another.

And the Republicans do nothing.

Shame on them. Saying you are and being a patriot or so different.

Pete Buttigieg wants ‘intergenerational justice.’ What’s that? – NBC News

The Republicans are all up in arms about the freshman members of Congress. sure their views are different but of course they’re also younger and I have had a different life experience than somebody who’s been in Congress for the last 50 years.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg is talking long-term issues. Weighing these issues on how they are going to mature in the future. We seem to make our decisions based on a one-year budget. The best our government can do is a two-year farm Bill. It’s time we think a little bit further down the line then one or two years. China thinks in decades and has a plan mapped out for its economy and its people. Look I’m not talking about the dogmatic five-year plans of the Soviet Union.I’m talking about actual planning on how and why we want our economy to grow. Infrastructure should be our number one goal and this country. spending money on infrastructure does not balloon the debt. Spending money on infrastructure actually lowers the debt. The Republicans know that but they want us to be unhappy with the government so not fixing infrastructure is the best way of doing that.

Mayor Peter Buttigieg has some fresh ideas and he deserves to be on the stage when we have the debates in June.

McMaster and Commander, Trump “wasn’t absorbing a fucking thing he said,” – The New Yorker

When Trump took over the presidency the National Security Council wrote talking points for when the president would speak to foreign leaders. These were varied and had lots of detail. These are the same that have been written for presidents for decades. After a few weeks advisors to the president said that these were too much, he’s more of a visual guy, he needed more pictures.

So basically we have a president who wants to run the country with comic books or at best a graphic novel as his briefing documents. I have not used the I word before in this blog but I think it’s time for impeachment. Actually I know it’s time for impeachment and if this Congress was not run by spineless and unpatriotic Republicans impeachment would be started. You would think it would be in their best interest to get rid of this stain and get someone who might get reelected like Mike Pence.

I don’t like Mike Pence and especially his anti-gay rhetoric but bad is better than crazy. And that’s a sad state that our country is in.

Government battles Microsoft in email privacy case before Supreme Court – NBC News

Saying that this is huge is the understatement of the year. The implications globally would change the way we do business on a daily basis. Our interactions would become subject to a Court’s ability to look at our emails. I am going to say that the Supreme Court is going to say that emails are the same as snail mail. I have never heard of a court compelling the post office to turn over mail but I may be wrong.

Military attempting a coup against Turkish government – The Washington Post

If there was a moment in history that we need Hillary Clinton in the white house it is today. Turkey is not only pivotal in our relationship with the Middle East but as a NATO Ally they are where we store our moments including stealth weapons and drones. Instability of this kind needs to have someone who knows how to handle it. Only Hillary Clinton has the criteria to replace President Obama. I don’t think Donald Trump’s having negotiated the Miss Universe pageant in Russia stands up to her years as Secretary of State and u.s. senator.

Russian government hackers broke into DNC servers, stole Trump opposition research – POLITICO

If Donald Trump had anything to do with this he should be charged with treason. The justice department should open an investigation immediately. He’s been trading compliments with Putin and now Putin knows what the DNC has on Donald Trump. Who knows what kind of deal this crooked individual has made with North Korea’s leadership. This is a blow to Hillary’s campaign and I heard you to donate today.
