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.
Better late than never. With the Republican convention starting next week it was due time for Senator Sanders to endorse Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Now let’s see how much he goes out on the campaign Trail for her. We need a really strong front to the Feats Donald Trump. I know what the polls are showing but it’s not going to be a cakewalk.
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.
Calling what Trump said last week as an economic speech would be stretching the imagination. Corporations and Business Leaders understand that his policies would put us in a deep recession if not a complete depression of our economy. So Business Leaders are galvanizing behind Hillary because she’s the only one that is putting out policies that are well-rounded and would help both the Working person and business owners especially small business ones. This is the opposite of what normally happens during @clash between Democrats and Republicans on the presidential level.
Until Hillary Clinton gets on stage and announces her vice presidential pick all of this is background static. I think that Senator Cory Booker, a true American Hero, would make a great vice presidential pick. Hillary has the luxury I love having a myriad of choices that would be perfect as her vice president. That is not what can be said at all about Donald Trump. Those who would consider becoming Trump’s vice presidential candidate are power hungry and are also ignoring the fact that they are hitting their star to a supernova that’s going to explode in their face.
Hillary will make a choice that is good for the country. Donald Trump will make a choice that is good for Donald Trump.
Crisis a movement would be premature. But it’s certainly a beginning. I can imagine how difficult this must be. The party that you have been associated with all your life has made choices that make it impossible for you to vote for the nominee for president. Then you add into the equation you’re a woman and then it makes it all clear. It’s not just Donald Trump’s style that upsets the Republican women it’s what comes out of his mouth. As a lifelong Democrat I so sympathize with this group. At this point, I don’t know if I could support Bernie Sanders. So this whole notion comes home to roost for me. Follow them on Twitter and supportive and most importantly welcome them because they can mean the difference between losing and wedding in November.
Bill Clinton has always said that if Hillary had not been a woman she would have been President before him. She has had eight years to look at the errors of 2008. She is smart and is not going to repeat them. She has a great organization around her and this well written CNN piece will make you feel better about the next 136 days.

Brexit has spawned a new word for the Republican Party: Trexit. I am unconvinced. I really believe that the Republicans have decided to grin and bear it. I also believe that they would prefer in their hearts of hearts Let There Be Clinton administration as opposed to a Trump Fiasco. The Republican convention is in 3 weeks. Going to be interesting to see all the machinations that happen between now and then within the Republican Party. Their party Unity is at its lowest in my memory. And I believe that party Unity for the Democrats is starting to grow. One by one I am having people follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook who were Sanders supporters and I’m so happy about this. I believe that the reality of a trump presidency became more evident after the brexit vote. Let’s hope part of unity Rose until November 8th when we must go to vote against Trump and especially for Hillary Clinton.

For the last few weeks I have been using the hashtag Trump lies matter, in this article Trump lies revealed. Everything he said about Hillary in his “Crooked Hillary ” speech is a lie. Step by step USA Today takes Trump apart. Everything he said about Hillary was a lie, pants on fire lie, Donald Trump wants to repeat Lies over and over again until they become the truth. We must make sure that our friends and family know that these are lies and articles like this one and USA Today is great ammunition for us. #TrumpLiesMatter AVB http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/06/23/fact-check-trump-attack-clinton-character/86271014/
When I hear Brent Scowcroft name I don’t usually think very positively about it. He’s a republican who had been always very partisan. And for him to endorse Hillary is quite a coup for the Clinton campaign. This is indicative of the stresses in the Republican party’s infrastructure. I think we’re going to see a lot more cracks showing as we get closer to November. AVB http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/brent-scowcroft-endorses-clinton-george-hw-bush
I know that this may fuel speculation that Elizabeth Warren is going to be Hillary’s vice presidential pick. I don’t think she chosen as Hillary’s vice president. I have many reasons why I think that she is not going to be chosen and as far as I’m concerned this visit today kind of cements that. I love Elizabeth Warren and I think she’s going to be amazing for Hillary on the campaign Trail this next 5 months. If Hillary can Wage War on several fronts with Trump it will make him less effective. I really think that she really loves our country and in the end is going to pick someone that is already well trained to be the president of the United States. There is no such training but having experience in foreign affairs is very important. So the speculation will go on and this is the fun part of politics.
