Protesting coal miners: Mitch McConnell has done nothing for Kentucky | TheHill

Over the last 30 months Trump has transformed himself in the eyes of many of his supporters from a billionaire crusader for there interest to a politician. And that may be his downfall.

The word politician has become a dirty word to those who voted for Trump hoping for some change. Has the jobs that were promised in the Auto industry and the mines are disappearing under his watch this politician thing is going to go viral.

Watch the news report yesterday about a town in Wyoming that relies on mining, coal mining. The mine had been bought and sold and bought and sold IDs vulture investors. two town of 30,000 people and yesterday 600 of them lost their jobs. The trickle-down effect of 600 people losing their jobs in such a small town is devastating.

Beyond the fact that Mitch McConnell has did one of the main architects of disruption in the Congress. The architect of the Giants tax break for the very rich. The architect of not allowing for election fraud funding he’s also not doing anything for those people that thought he was their champion in Kentucky.

I have been wrong before about Trump and the Republicans. I don’t understand how people can vote against their interest and yet they do over and over again. but I hope that this time around I’m correct.

Nonpartisan ethics watchdog claims Ivanka Trump has violated the Hatch Act – Salon

The problem with the United States is that we have been lulled into a sense of security by Presidents who, even those like Richard Nixon, followed ethics recommendations. The Hatch act was written into law in 1939 and basically says that anyone who is a paid member of an Administration other than the President, vice president and a couple of other people cannot use their position to promote their political views. This worked until Donald Trump. So when you have a President that brings in his daughter and son-in-law into the White House and has his campaign adviser and/or campaign pollster working in the White House one would expect that an act that has no teeth would not work. Basically the Hatch Act expected that the President would follow ethics rules. That obviously doesn’t work with this man he has not a single bit of ethics and his DNA. So it’s a useless act right now and with a person like Mitch McConnell in the Senate don’t expect it to have any teeth anytime soon. This is is sad for those seeing the headlines would seem to make people feel like something is being done but in actuality nothing can be done because it has to come from the Oval Office and he’s not going to fire or reprimand or anything his daughter, the daughter that he seems to have weird feelings for.

Oh by the way if Tiffany were in the job maybe the Hatch Act would work.

Leaked Documents Allege the NRA Has Been Spending $100,000 a Day on Lawyers – Slate

I’m a blogger, not an investigative reporter. But I’ve got a good sense for numbers. So let’s see 35 million dollars a year on lawyers, 42 million dollars a year to an advertising agency, 60 million dollars towards the campaign of Donald Trump. that’s a lot of money for one nonprofit organization!

The NRA went from a gun safety organization to an organization that protects mass murders and their perpetrators.

the NRA and gun rights organizations in the US love to say that their rights are inalienable under the second amendment. Have we ever looked at the wording of the second amendment? The first words are a “well regulated militia”, regulations are in the first few words of the amendment. It was never meant to be an all out flooding of the market with high capacity and armor piercing bullets. Military-style weapons should be in the hands of the military. their arguments make as much sense as saying that we all have the right to have our own private nuclear Arsenal.

And as far as these leaked documents, they’re coming from Oliver North, one of the sleaziest people that we have had to deal with since the Reagan Era. He was the guy who sold weapons 2 hide from Congress the funding of an illegal act. Wayne LaPierre you go to bed with dogs you’re going to wake up covered in fleas.

The NRA has become a merchant of death and a very corrupt one at that.

‘He is not going to be the nominee’: Dems slam Sanders over Maduro stance – POLITICO

Back in 2015 I wrote an open letter to Bernie Sanders asking him not to run for president. I knew it would divide the Democratic party and we would ultimately lose the election. And now we see that he does not understand politics at all. you don’t win the presidency in South Florida and now he’s alienated a large portion of Floridians cool weather lights Leon Juan Solis an opinion about Venezuela. The Cuban population remember what’s Fidel Castro did to them. Venezuelans understand what president dictator has done to their country. Does this man not understand that he is now making it very difficult for Democrats to win the election?

I resent Bernie Sanders because we have had to deal with Trump in the white house because of him and only him. He never embraced Hillary Clinton’s presidential bed once he lost the nomination. He never campaign for her in any way that felt genuine. His speeches were flat and did not have his normal pizzazz that’s his call block following heard it and then go out to vote.

The Democratic party for Democrats and not carpetbaggers who come in to the party to get the nomination.

“There Won’t Even Be a Paper Trail”: Has Stephen Miller Become a Shadow Master at the State Department? – Vanity Fair

Purposefully separating parents from their children should be against the law. If we are at War mr. Miller would be committing a war crime. He is certainly committed a crime against Society. He needs to pay for this and a nice stint in an orange jumpsuit would be exactly what I have on my mind.

He is using tactics that are so similar to what the Nazis did to do Jews it’s frightening that it’s happening in the United States of America. We don’t separate parents from their children. when he conceived this diabolical plan he made sure there was no paper trail so that these children would never be reunited with their parents and then sent them across the 50 states so they would be literally needles and a haystack. Some of these children are so young that they don’t speak yet and so cannot tell you who their parents are. The ACLU has provided DNA kits but many of the parents are now deported and there is no way of matching them. This is akin to killing these children in the eyes of their parents.

Can you imagine losing your child permanently but knowing that they are alive somewhere and you can never see them again? This is inhuman and reptilian.

Has Jared Kushner Conspired to Defraud America? – The New York Times

I watch Rachel Maddow every night. When you watch someone every night you know when they are at a loss for understanding something. Several months ago she tried to understand why the United States had decided to put a blockade on Qatar. Qatar has been one of the best friends the United States has in the Middle East. There was no geopolitical reason for this. And she was completely at a loss for why the Trump Administration will decide to do this.

And now we have clarity.

Charles Kushner, Jared’s father, went to Qatar to ask for alone 4666 5th Avenue. 666 5th Avenue is an elephant sitting on top of the Kushner corporations shoulders. There is a mortgage that balloons in less than a year and the sum is 1.2 billion dollars! That’s billion with a B. Well said no to Charles Kushner and then the put the blockade up. Now we see a quid pro quo and there’s nothing that a prosecutor cherish this more in Prosecuting someone more than a quid pro quo in politics. This has been the fall of so many politicians.

It’s going to be hard for the White House to say that the president you nothing about it. If the president knew nothing about it what is he doing in the White House in the first place?

Trump’s liar-in-chief: Since joining his staff, Kellyanne Conway has been living in a world of make believe – Salon.com

The first interview I saw of her after becoming campaign chairman for Donald Trump was on Chris Matthews Hardball. The outrage from that interview has caused Chris Matthews ratings to plummet. Right out of the gate she started lying and hasn’t ever stop lying weather it’s July to make Donald Trump look good or to lie to make Hillary Clinton look bad. I know PR and PR makes people see the best of what the pr people AR promoting. It’s why the first thing someone does when he or she screws up is they hire a PR firm.

Miss Conway is not a PR person. She is a propagandist and one with an evil agenda. She knows she’s lying and she repeats it over and over again. It’s what has become the norm with politicians who are on the wrong side of an issue. I watched her say that Donald Trump does not insult people. Was she in a coma during the primaries? She says she’s not interested in talking about Hillary’s health, and yet she does so in a new window over and over. She’s a perfect match for Donald Trump and that cabal that he’s put together as a campaign. Lord, I look with Nostalgia at the days of Paul Manafort. Kellyanne Conway is a con man. She is the one who said there would be a softening of Trump’s immigration policies.  In fact there has been no softening or hardening. He is just repeating the policies that President Obama has been carrying out the last 8 years. Donald Trump is a con man and he hires con people around him. Maybe after the election they can start a circus.
