Dems investigating Trump have a new tactic to break his blockade – POLITICO

Corey Lewandowski, the reason I no longer watch CNN. what a wonderful example of the people that surround the present occupant of the White House. Credibly accused of sexual harassment, lies for the president whenever he can and takes money from what he referred to as the enemy of the people, CNN.

the one thing about this new tactic which annoys me is that it seems to make Trump’s point about the executive privilege. Blanket executive privilege does not exist. So why Congress and the Democrats trying to go around this blanket executive privilege it seems like they are succumbing to his tactics.

If we ever have an impartial Department of Justice in the future I hope that that attorney general will change the rule that a sitting president cannot be indicted or that no indictments can be held until he or she is out of office. This is an untenable situation to have someone in our country, our leader, above the law.

Perhaps for his next act Corey Lewandowski Kim hit someone, never mind he’s already done that.

Who Is Justin Amash And Why Is He Willing To Go Against His Own Party? – NPR

As far as I can see Justin Amash is a patriot.

I love the backstory in this article from NPR. His parents are both immigrants from the Middle East. I guess Trump would call them Shit-hole adjacent countries, I call them countries.his work ethic is uncompromised. Even as a child he would not go out and play with his friends until he finished his homework. That ended up making him the valedictorian and he has excelled ever since. He’s very young to be in Congress, 39, compared to those old white men that permeate the Republican Party.

And now the Republican party is turning his back on him. But he is not flinching. I love this Twitter give and take what he had with Donald Trump jr.

From the NPR article by Dustin Dwyer

If there is anything that we can take away, that we did not know already, from the George Stephanopoulos interview with Trump is that Trump talks like a mob boss. And so it is not out of character for his son to act like a mob boss also. Although both would be terrible, seriously if anybody watched The Sopranos, Goodfellas are The Godfather movies you’ll know that Trump and his family would not make it very long. But I guess I’ll president has ambitions to be a mob boss. Not very reassuring?

I bring up Watergate a lot on my blog. I guess it thrust me into my love of politics at a very young age. I watched every single minutes of the Watergate hearings on the 13 inch GE PortaColor television that my parents gave me for my bar mitzvah. I had a summer job answering phones and I got my boss to let me watch the hearings on my television what’s on your piece in one year and answering the phones with the other.I would carry my TV back and forth everyday and trust me it wasn’t lite. At the beginning of the hearings there was no Republican support for impeaching vixen but as history now tells us by the end of the hearings take it. Maybe because make sense want a second term and there was no election could take him out of office.

I understand Justin Amash and his wish to have Trump impeached, if I could see this guy out of office tomorrow it would make me so happy. I would deal with a Mike Pence presidency or maybe not. One of those phrases that Trump uses on the media is enemy of the people. Honestly it’s the Republican party and Trump who are the enemy of the people. So even someone that he’s seemingly benign like Mike Pence trying to make himself look is actually deep down a radical bigot.

I think that the best way to Democrats can go is through impeachment inquiries but without actually losing in an impeachment fight. The inquiries will be chiseling away at Trump’s support and hopefully he’ll the weakend enough that by November 2020 he is defeated in a I landslide.

As far as Justin Amash is concerned, he can count on my donating to his re-election campaign. He’s not in my party but he’s the kind of leaders we need in our country.

Read the Mueller Report: Searchable Document and Index BY THE NEW YORK TIMES

In 1966 Robert F. Kennedy delivered a speech that included an instance: There is a Chinese curse which says “May he live in interesting times.” Like it or not, we live in interesting times. They aretimes of danger and uncertainty; but they are also the most creative of any time in the history of mankind.

Two days ago special counsel Robert Mueller made a 9 1/2 minute report to the country. Whether you like him or you don’t like him this man is a patriot and I believe he wanted to warn us not just about the abuses in the white house but also the threat to our democracy by foreign actors, especially Russia, but with thanks to this Administration to others including China and Iran.

he urged that all Americans read the reports that he and his team put together. It’s not a dry read but it’s certainly not a John Grisham novel I’m posting this because I’m hoping that my followers on this blog will take the time to download this and read the part they are interested in if not the whole 485 pages.

Our democracy is at stake here. I think it is our civic duty to read this report that took two years in the making. Yesterday the report paid for itself. Paul manafort’s for securus of his properties including a condominium on the 43rd floor of Trump Tower are now the properties of the United States of America and its citizenry. The Marshal Service will be posting these properties for sale and they’re value is considered to be conservatively at 42 million dollars. The whole power investigation cost $22, 000,000.

Let TV commentators be TV commentators but it’s time for us to get on the saddle and read the report itself.

Trump rails about impeachment in tweetstorm – NBC News

Before I even use the I word, I would like to say a couple of things about his approval rating. He claims that his approval rating would be at 65% if it were not for the Russia investigations. I have to respectfully disagree. Russia has nothing to do with his approval ratings. His approval ratings are a function of the fact that about 30% of the American people are Republicans, 30% of the American people are Democrats and the rest are Independents. from the day he took office this president has never acted like the president of the United States but rather the president of those who voted for him. He is attacked Democrats as if they are not part of this country. Independentsare not affiliated to any party but they have eyes and ears and they see what’s happening with this presidency. The profanity, the vulgar ism’s, the lack of moral standards, tell lies, the poor choices for people in high places, and the lack of stability is why his approval ratings are always in the mid-30s. The Russia investigation has nothing to do with his terrible performance as a president. He continuously claims that the economy is because of his doing. He inherited President Obama’s economy which was like a giant snowball rolling down a hill with the momentum that has kept going. Don’t worry mr. Trump, your tariffs and poor judgment will wreck this economy. You’re ridiculous tax breaks for the very very wealthy are going to cause this deficit to explode.

Today, he canceled meetings with pop Congressional leaders regarding infrastructure because he says the agreement between Canada and Mexico needs to be ratified first. Disagreement should be ratified but it is a necessary step because what we had with Canada and Mexico was a great agreement I was working well for all three countries. This is a slight tweak to the agreements not an overall the way he claims.

Anybody who flies within the United States and goes to another continent sees how terrible are airports are. We are the laughing stock of the world because we are the richest economy and we are not spending the money we’re needs to go. Are roads, bridges Aaron’s power transmission infrastructure is falling apart. We could be attacked by China, Russia or ran using our antiquated electrical grid to take down this country. But this modern-day emperor Nero is fiddling while the United States of America is burning.

This is a difficult choice but I agree with speaker Pelosi and we need to do the investigations before we start the impeachment process. My main rub with how Congress is proceeding is that Congress is acting like this is a normal presidency, which it is not. We need to be much more proactive and set timelines that are shorter and with more punitive actions for those who do not answer subpoenas and aids in the investigation up his corrupt man.

I bring this up often but can you imagine call the Republican heads would explode collectively if President Obama went on a tweetstorm of any kind?

Judge Napolitano: Barr’s ‘Foolish Attempt’ to Sanitize Mueller Report Was ‘Dumb and Insulting’ – The Daily Beast

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.

‘COUPLE OF FACEBOOK ADS’: JARED KUSHNER DOWNPLAYS RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE AS HE BLASTS INVESTIGATIONS – Newsweek

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.

Romney ‘sickened’ by Trump’s behavior in Mueller report – The Hill

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.

White House and Justice Dept. Officials Discussed Mueller Report Before Release – New York Times

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.

Healthcare once again tops list of Americans worries in 2019 – Gallup polling

I’m going to try to preface each one of my blocked posts which have a positive spin for the Democratic Party by saying, nobody can lose an election better than the Democratic Party. I’ve been a Democrat since I was a child and I’ve watched us lose a lot of elections.

All that being said, the present occupant of the White House gave the Democrats a big gift last week. instead of basking in the artificial Glory caused by the delay in the release of the Mueller report, Trumpordered the Department of Justice to abolish Obamacare or the affordable Care act. It is mind-boggling why his weird head would think this was a good idea 20 months before an election. The Democrats wombat the house in a landslide because of healthcare and once again healthcare tops the list of worries that Americans have. Gallup polling is a republican-leaning polling organization so when they say 55% I think this is their top issue, believe them.

Even the turtle, Mitch McConnell, threw up his hands and told Trump that he needs to come up with Anu health care plan for America. This White House couldn’t come up with a new recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies let alone figure out one of the most complicated issues facing this country.

We should stop talking about Russia as a Democratic party and start talking about healthcare, it worked in 2018 and it will win in 2020. Impeachment this close to a national election is a non-starter.

Democrats Ask FBI To Investigate Pro-Trump Former Owner Of Massage Parlors – NPR

Li “Cindy” Yang and Donald J Trump, two peas in a pod. Scam artists United. One created a minor Empire with massage parlors across southern Florida the other created a minor Empire with fake real estate investments. One became president the other one sells access to that president. I think if the owner of the New England Patriots, Kraft, had not been arrested big one upper Paradise of Asia massage parlors perhaps this story would have never made the news.

Unfortunately for Trump and her it happened. Granted she doesn’t own the massage parlors anymore but the stain spreads very quickly.

I guess in 2016 Trump like saying that he was going to drain the swamp. He also said he was going to hire the best people. He doesn’t say that much any more does he? He truly has brought the best people to government, the best fraud artists, the best grifters, the best scam artist, truly has created a whole new swamp well systematically destroying our government and the environment where we all live.
