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?
Slowly but surely cracks are appearing in the coverage of the current occupant of the White House on Fox news. Fox news also known as Trump TV has always been an important tool for the current occupant of the White House. But brave souls likeChris Wallace and judge Napolitano have started what seems like a prickle but could eventually turn into a flood.
It’s easy to dismiss Fox news, it’s not easy to dismiss the ratings it gets. 8 dwarfs its competition like CNN and MSNBC so it is important that they start being truth-tellers to this Administration.
Trump went in front of the cameras and of course lied through his teeth again saying that he never said that there were good people on both sides and that this had been litigated already in the media. falsehood after false it is what comes out of this man’s mouth and you know what whenever he’s on any channel or either change a Channel or mute because I cannot even stand listening to his voice for 2 seconds.
On a side note, I completely disagree with the Democratic party not giving Fox news a debate. That’s absolutely asinine. 21% of Fox news viewers are Democrats and that’s kind of a slap in the face to them but beyond that should not the Democratic party look to bring in some of those who are disenchanted with the current occupant of the White House? I say yes!
Let’s hope that the truth will start ringing more often from Fox news and until then don’t be fooled, the truth is out there.
Are we going to let fascism take root in our country? I say no.
Call your representative and tell them that you want the Democrats to have a response to this man’s lies tomorrow after the speech.
Call your local TV stations and tell them not to cover his speech. when President Obama wanted to make a speech in 2014 regarding immigration all four networks denied it. It’s time that the network’s stand up to this man’s lies.
Boycott his speech. make sure that your cable box is tuned to a channel that will not be carrying it. Let’s not make him feel important because he gets good ratings and you know how this is important in this idiot’s head.
This is a call to action. Act as if the future of our country depends on it, it does.
White House press secretaries I’ve had it hard in the Trump Administration. How could we forget Sean Spicer and the amount of lies that he’s feud off of the podium on his very first press briefing. And of course although he was not press secretary, Anthony scaramucci who was the press director for the White House for about 28 days also had it hard. And now we come to who I feel the least amount of empathy for, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I believe that she relishes debasing the press wow lying to the American people. Mike Wallace would be very happy with his son right now. He put it right on the line of the fact that this wall is not going to stop terrorists. this wall will do nothing but empty out the coffers of the American government as for what? Yes, there is a President who is about to be indicted, impeached or hopefully he and his vice president will resign.
Poor Pinocchio, he’s getting a bad rap. He lied a couple of times but it’s so unfair that his name be dragged through the mud with the Tangerine nightmare’s.
I remember In a place far far away and a Time long ago when a President would speak and it was mostly the truth. Oh wait that was two years ago and here. It’s difficult to watch an institution that I have looked up to for all of my life being destroyed by this man for his own purposes.
Brett Kavanaugh wants us to believe that he’s this country bumpkin not wise to the big cities ways. His father was a judge. He was groomed to be a judge. So what was in his yearbook reflex who he was and who he is. I know that when I was in high school, everything that wanted to buy your book was important. I wanted as many accolades as possible in my yearbook but certainly did not talk about underage drinking or sexual encounters. So, it’s surprising to me that this is what he is using as a defense.
One more point, when one goes in front of Congress I assume one studies. It turns out he was not drinking legally nor were any of his senior class friends who were drinking. The drinking age had been raised and his County the year before to 20. So all this talk about legally drinking is bull. Now let’s go on to college, it was illegal to drink it in Connecticut at the time if you are under 21. He was clearly under-21 until his senior year in college. Another lie upon lie. If this man lies like this about the trivial things what is he not telling the truth about?
Stephanie Clifford also known as Stormy Daniels along with her attorney, Michael Avenatti, May well be the Catalyst that causes the Trump ship to sink. I wasn’t of this opinion right away. I thought Playboy model Karen McDougal was more believable in her interview with Anderson Cooper than was Stormy Daniels. But both women need to be given credit because dare truth was absolutely the truth. At the end of the day everything they both have said about their dealings with Trump have been corroborated by multiple individuals.
with Trump we’re dealing with an individual who thinks he and he alone is above the law. This was something that was clear from the time he tried to get out of going to Vietnam for the lame reason that he had bone spurs. And through his history as a failed developer he cheated his way through every business deal. He’s a cheat and got into the White House by cheating and now the American people know that. What to me was more important than anything that happened this week was the interview with the juror in the Paul manafort case that wanted Paul manafort to be innocent but said that he wasn’t and the evidence was overwhelming. She confessed to wear a make America great again hat to the courthouse. But she left her hat in the car and brought her citizenship into the courtroom. I believe this is giving a lot of people out there validation and the ability to walk away from Trump and his lies.
After all of the news about what Michael Cohen has done for his other two clients I have to wonder what Sean Hannity has had to pay 4 Michael Kong to fix. Michael Cohen is a fixer and not an attorney in the way that you and I think of an attorney. It’s more like an attorney in The Godfather. He threatens people and he does underhanded deals that hide information from the public. Case in point all of the non-disclosure agreements with people who have had relationships with the current occupant of the White House. Or the RNC Finance chair who had to have an abortion with a young lady he had sexual relations with. This is the classic Family Values party that the Republicans have been counting all these years. Affairs with pornstars and Playboy bunnies and abortions left and right.
Sean Hannity is not a reporter. Sean Hannity is a pundit who’s relationship with the truth what’s only when it’s convenient for him. But Fox News sells him as a reporter and let’s be honest here he is in the back pocket of the present occupant of the White House and as such should not be making news programming.
What has Sean Hannity paid Michael corn to hide? Affairs with Playboy bunnies or Pawn Stars? Abortions? This is the family values Republican Party of 2018 and they should be ashamed of themselves.
As you can tell from the pictures it was filled with violent political radicals, not.
If there are violent radicals in this fight it is truly the NRA.
You can click the link below and it will lead you to the fact checking of the claims by the NRA.
The NRA is full of lies and will do everything to hold their grip on power. They’re only grip on power is to have gun owners believing that we are out to get their guns. That’s not the intention here and it never has been. Sensible gun laws are necessary in any stable Society. Having background checks which can be gone around by going to a gun show is not having background checks. Not putting people who are on the no-fly list on background checks is not having background checks. Allowing military grade weapons on the streets of our country he’s not good policy. My first day in law school my constitutional law professor said something which I always will remember, he said a bad law makes all other laws weaker. Truth.
So yes I was at the March and it was a wonderful expression of love for our children and the future of our country. It was truly of March for our lives. I didn’t get to see the stage because I didn’t want to push in front of the young people who are really the ones putting this on and I was a supporter and almost an interloper so my picture show crowds but not the stage.
Now I hear the pundits question whether or not we will be talking about this in 2 months I say what we talkin about it in two years, I say we talked about this for as long as it takes until this country is like Massachusetts. They have sensible gun laws and if we had the same laws across the country 27,000 people’s lives would be saved each year. That’s almost as many as died in car accidents and I bet you no one would be mad if we made laws that saved people in car accidents.
This was a great day, a historic day and one led by young people and I am so proud of them. They give me hope in a hopeless time. They give me joy in a joyless your last time. They speak truth when truth is spoken by our leaders.
Bravo to the young people that organized this wonderful event.
I have been on this planet almost 64 years. I have seen lots and lots of administrations come and go. But I’ve never seen one that lies to the American people this way. It’s continuous it’s never-ending and it comes from every branch of the administration. I am so tired of hearing about the lies that this White House puts out every day through its so-called press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And now has a resident of California I am absolutely Furious about the fact that they’ve been lying about undocumented criminals in our state. This has prompted the resignation of their spokesperson at ICE because he could not keep putting out these lies. Enough is enough this is a treasonous Administration that counts house to Russia and now we need to get rid of them. I have not said the impeachment word in my blog yet but I’m ready to say that now.
