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.
Republicans seem to be a lot like little children. Little children cling to Santa Claus until they figure out that it’s all a big scam. Unfortunately for the Republicans who keep clinging to the belief that the dossier that was originally paid for by Republicans who running against Trump but for some reason that story has morphed into it being a democratic dossier, in the end Christopher Steele has proved to be a very good source.
So here comes Rodger Stone saying that the Christopher Steele dossier was the basis of his being investigated. That’s such bull. He was investigated because he was communicating with Russian operatives in the United States. He was investigated because he does underhanded deals just like his mentors Roy Cohn and Richard Nixon. Unfortunately judge Birdman who is overseeing his case is the same judge that oversaw Paul manafort’s case and she doesn’t take bulshit lying down. I am so happy that he’s spending all of this GoFundMe money on attorneys who are not going to be of any help to him, his only hope is a pardon from the corrupt man in the White House.
Some advice on tattoos. Only tattoo the names of your mom and your kids on your body. I wonder what’s going to keep Roger Stone from being somebody’s bitch in jail? His face or Richard Nixon’s face on his back? Inquiring minds want to know.
I’m not sure if we are supposed to be feeling sorry for Roger Stone. do you know how many lower-income individuals are languishing in jails across our country because they could not come up with $10,000 in bail money let alone 250,000. So no I don’t feel sorry for Roger Stone who in my opinion has never done an honest day’s work. Putting on loud outfits and weird high where does not constitute a days of work to me. Having a group of fascists as my so-called security makes me want to throw up on him. I agree with those in the community of Richmond that do not want him at a strip club cocking his brand of hatred.
I think the gag order by judge Amy Berman Jackson was quite clear and she has been bending over backwards for this man. I think that she is playing the long game and is going to hit him, bigley to use a term by his favorite politician, when it comes to sentencing. Anyway I hope so.
Our forefathers created this country with three branches of government, the executive, the legislative, and the judicial. We should always remember there’s really a fourth branch of government, the fourth estate, the Press.
so when two branches of our government fail the American people badly like is happening right now the third branch needs to come to the rescue and it’s why did you just so branch is so important. This Administration has been doing everything in its power with the complicit help of the Republican majority in the House and Senate 2 change the judicial branch into their own image, an image of racism, bigotry, xenophobia and a love of the rich. So what happened today with this judge serves to illustrate why we need to make sure that Supreme Court Justice nominee Kavanaugh is not put in the Supreme Court at all cost. This will change the court radically for the rest of my life and the rest of most of us alive today. This will be a court that will favor corporations over individuals, the rich over the poor, the oppressors over the oppressed. I am so happy that this judge took this action today and at least for this family there faith is not sealed forever.
I never thought I would be ashamed of my country. It’s done some terrible things in what it thought was the right thing to do. But separating mothers from their children goes beyond the pale. This is the post November 9th 2016 America, this is Trump’s America. In the name of this demagogue we have become intolerant, divided, and not the country that our founding fathers hoped we would be at the mature age of 242.
We have a tag line calling ourselves the resistance. Well now is the time to resist and go and volunteer and make phone calls and donate and knock on doors and do everything you know how to do to get people out to vote. I I am volunteering at the Westside Democratic Club helping people learn how to make cold calls. The Westside Democratic Club is in Westwood and I live in downtown Los Angeles. I drive there in rush hour and come back home in what is left over from Rush Hour. It actually takes me more time to get home then it does to get there. AndI’m not doing enough, he’ll I’m not doing half of what I should be doing to try to save our country.
The special counsel, and the special counsel’s office is on firm footing. Thanks to the broad mandate given to him by Deputy attorney-general Rod Rosenstein his mandate is not going to go away anytime soon, much to the sorrow of trump supporters.
Now this Kavanagh guy that they want to put on the Supreme Court and he may well invalidate or try to vote against the special counsel’s office. the Judiciary branch of government must check the other two branches of government. If it is not do its job then our democracy is truly at risk.
For decades now the Republican party has had to abide by rules set down by a consent decree. They were caught cheating and up to their old tricks of voter suppression. The court found this so outrageous that they mandated behavior for the Republican Party. This mandated Behavior was meant to expire in July of next year. Donald Trump has changed all of the Dynamics and is going to make it harder for the Republicans in the future to try to suppress the vote. The Democrats have Ben too easy to turn the other cheek and because of that they have lost in places where they should have won. It’s good to see the Democrats standing up for our rights and making sure that every voter can go to the pole and not worry that they will be obstructed or harassed.
I live in downtown Los Angeles. My ZIP code 90012 has an medium income of $98,000 a year. It’s young and very liberal. So, this area is is fertile territory in the mind of Jill Stein. I am besieged by commercials for this person running supposedly for president. Her message makes no sense and is very anti Hillary Clinton. She says what every bernieorbust person says don’t choose between the worst of two evils. I will say that Jill Stein and her Dogma is the worst of all. She promises free everything with no bases on how this is all going to be paid for. This Utopia of hers will become hell on Earth if she becomes president. Now obviously this time around she has no chance. But I think she’s building a base here in California for further runs in the future.
I used to hate watching Carly fiorina commercials when she was running for office here in California a few years ago. Now I have a number 1 most disliked individual running as a liberal in Jill Stein. By the way Gary Johnson is a kook and if he does get on that debate stage his kookiness will shine through. I’m just worried he’ll make Donald Trump look good in comparison.
In a ruling that could have been predicted by a 5 year old the judge rightfully said that there was no cause to allow people to register just so that those who did not make the deadline would get some sort of second try. I registered to vote when I got to Los Angeles from Miami I registered as a Democrat and I am voting in person on Tuesday. If Bernie Sanders supporters did not follow those pretty simple steps it’s because they’re either lazy, or not really Democrats. I believe the latter. Enough of coddling Bernie supporters and let’s get on to the real business of defeating this monster called Donald Trump. Today Donald Trump denied meeting with the fascist leader in Italy even though he is on tape saying that he hopes that the fascists win Italy and become the Prime Minister. Today he says he doesn’t remember anything. #TrumpLiesMatter. http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-voting-lawsuit-sanders-supporters-20160601-snap-story.html
Even Donald J Trump had problems visualizing Trump University, so he had to put its logo on a television monitor. These are the kinds of things they’re going to come and haunt him during the election campaign period I am going to try to now focus on the Republicans and their likely torch holder Donald J Trump period Bernie Sanders is a footnote to history now and I hope he goes holding his head high and not ruining the chances for the Democrats to win the White House.
