My meanderings about politics, LGBTQI 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.
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?
If you’re reading my blog you like politics and so you may know this already. But I have to make a huge Point here, don’t your bank is not a respectable banking institution. It has been found to fund terrorist and terrace backwards. This is basically a bank of last resort if you are a corporation. And this bag, that has seen so much, thinks that Jared Kushner and Donald J Trump were suspicious in their activities.
It’s time for Congress to do its job and start down the road to complete investigation of this president. The election being less than 16 months away impeachment may not be the remedy. But congressional oversight certainly should be. And I have to ask respectfully to the chairman that have been giving this President these incredibly generous time frames for complying with subpoenas they need to stop. He’s not going to comply with subpoenas and we need information about this man before he does even more damage to our country.
War in Iranis looked upon by the GOP as a good distraction and a way of making people more patriotic and voting within the country’s interest. I think people are smart and they understand what war is. We had war with Iraq and is anybody happy with the outcome? I heard Tom Cotton on Meet the Press completely distort what’s happening with a Iran. Yes of late they are ramping up the fences because of this president. If you have a bully in school and you start taking self-defense courses one should not think of that as being hostile and its intentions but rather self-defense. I am no fan of Iran ruling establishment but the people of Iran are wonderful people and they should not be thrust into war because of some bull headed male testosterone driven War.
Tammy McFadden, a former Deutsche Bank employee, saw potentially suspicious transactions involving the company of Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, she said.

Is it me or is organized religion imploding upon itself?
In 2015 Jerry Falwell Jr allowed hideous Senator Ted Cruz to launch his campaign at Liberty University but remarkably endorsed Donald Trump a known adulterer and soft Core pornographer. Why would a man of religion do such a thing? Well it turns out that he had some nasty pictures that he needed to be fixed and he called on Trump’s fixer Michael Cohen to do the fixing. Turns out Michael Cohen kept one of the blackmailers photos and discuss them with Tom Arnold last week before going to jail. The Catholic Church is it self going through what has to be described as a cataclysm. The amount of young men and women who were assaulted sexually by members of the clergy has cost the Roman Catholic Church billions in Damages.
I posted last night on Countable that I had a theory. My theory is not one that relies on conspiracy but rather on what is plain evidence. Donald Trump received help from Russia and the dossier says that there was an infamous tape. The Russians were holding over him. What I find remarkable is that when the DNC was hacked the RNC was also hacked and yet we’ve never seen anything for the RNC. I believe that Putin is blackmailing Trump and is helping Trump blackmail members of the Republican Congressional delegation into doing his will. It’s not far-fetched and I think at the end of the day I’m going to be vindicated.
Trump in his soft porn video pouring champagne on the Playboy logo on a limousine looked on by Playboy bunnies
Let me say that again the President of the United States was in a soft porn video, can you imagine how Republican heads would have exploded if President Obama a picture of himself standing in the sanity of a pornstar?
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.
Presidential candidate and mayor Pete Buttigieg said it best when he called out Mike Pence on his twisted form of Christianity. Look I’m not a Christian I was raised Jewish and right now I’m kind of nothing. I look in religion and I don’t see that it’s done very much good to the world other than cause Wars and ferment hatred. Sure there has been good from religion but it’s always with a secondary motive to bring people into the fold.
Mike Pence is the worst kind of Christian. Mike Pence thinks that people are not equal because he doesn’t want them to be. This is the Mike Pence who was in charge of the Trump transition and did not notice all the Russians running around. Come on Mike Pence knew everything was going on and never said anything because he’s an opportunist. if Christ were back on this Earth he would have Mike Pence excommunicated because Mike Pence is a bad man and he needs to be called out for that.
It’s great seeing an Evangelical college and its professors coming out against his speaking there. we all see Indiana has this homo genius kind of place where everyone hates gays. Peter Buttigieg came out as gay in the middle of an election and one by 80% of the vote.
Mike Pence is not part of the mainstream and Mike Pence is culpable for all of the inhumanity of this Administration. Locking up children in cages, separating parents from their kids, banning transgenders in the military, the lies, sleeping with pornstars, paying off those pornstars and the list goes on and on. I’m not going to say the name of thepresent occupant of the white house because he craves that.
It’s time we all shun him the first ones that should are the msnbc’s of the world because they claim to be a liberal voice and yet each time this man spews out his hatred they are right there trying to get the ratings.
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.
Can you imagine the uproar from a Liz Cheney if we try to meddle in the Republican primary process. Their heads would explode.
Basically this tells us that there are afraid of the field that the Democrats are mounting to take on Trump in 2020. I think they are feeling the fact that there’s going to be a tidal wave, a blue tsunami that will change the political landscape. That’s why you see Mitch McConnell rushing unqualified activist judges on the federal bench. he is trying to fill every vacancy that he left open during President Obama’s presidency. Shame on Mitch McConnell and the Republicans.
Better Angels, an organization I belong to, says one should listen to the other side. I’m listening and I don’t like what I’m hearing.
Whenever I see these stories it makes my blood boil. They claim to be pro-israel but in fact they are not. They are being pro-israel in hopes that Israel is destroyed.
Belief in the Rapture, also known as millenarianism or eschatology, has multiple variations, but the core view is that there will an apocalyptic war, Jesus will return, and true Christians will be “raptured” or ascend to heaven, with the rest of the earth’s inhabitants punished. Rapture believersare split about the order of events, but they are united in the belief that only Christians will be saved.
Yes, it seems that so-called Christians, have come up with this voodoo religious kind of scenario where, of course, the Jews must all die so that Christians can find The Rapture and meet up with Jesus. This is racist and anti-Semitic point of Evangelical religion.
So whenever you hear about these laws that seem to be pro-israel, remember they are hoping for the destruction of Israel instead.
Bravo CNN, once again you prove to be anything but the leader in news. Instead of showing disc traders mugshot you instead show him with Cadillacs in the background. I’m not doing that. So mugshot it is.
Mr. Manafort when you signed the plea agreement with the special council you waived your rights to plead for a lighter sentence. You agreed that if you did not meet the requirements are the plea agreement that the book would be thrown at you. If I had my way I would throw the whole library at you. Your traitor and saying that you were trying to make these bad people better did not work out. everyone that you did business with was a bad person and they remain bad to the core and were thrown out of office except for Putin who is your good friend.
your plea agreement clearly stated that you are not to do anything illegal while you are waiting for sentencing. I guess a criminal to the Core cannot stop himself. So a life sentence is I hope what you are going to get.
Calling this President unhinged is an insult to the word unhinged. He’s more than unhinged he is certifiable. Honestly, this is becoming very tiresome. I am worried about what he has done to our federal courts in packing them with his allies. In his little sing-song that he did when announcing the so-called National emergency he was correct in saying that it is going to go to the Supreme Court. what I’m worried is how these new justices that are beholden to him will vote. I’m sure if you tell Justice Kavanaugh that tRUMP will give him some beer, he will fall in line with this madman’s actions. I am worried for the state of our Union has I’ve never been before.
