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.
Nobody in the Trump administration better represents the destruction of norms by this administration than Kellyanne Conway. That’s not hyperbole. She is a paid employee of the federal government. Yes, she is meant to give advice and counsel to a man who obviously doesn’t listen to anybody but himself. but she’s not meant to be the propaganda Minister for Trump and yet that’s exactly what she does on a daily basis.
Others in other administrations have had a similar position but none of them have ever taken up the mantle of lies like Kellyanne. Her lies come out as easily as her breath. She distorts truth and outright lies about it all the time. This is an administration that doesn’t have any real laurels to lay on its proverbial head. Sure they’ve got them too supreme Court justices who are most likely going to overturn Roe v Wade and they have brought in a slew of other judges more than prison Obama did in his whole eight years because of Moscow Mich. They gave a big tax cut to the rich and the rich are giving them their support.
It’s funny how Trump said today that the people of the United States are rich because of him. today I went to the grocery store and my checkout lady, Bertha, told me that at night the only thing they do is raise prices on everything because of the tariffs. this is heading home to everyone and if Trump who never has to buy a single thing for his fat body thinks that we are all rich perhaps the same kind of Rich that bankrupted him and all the businesses that he has failed in.
Let’s get one important fact out of the way right off the bat:
Just 2 percent of Barrasso’s 2017 fundraising is Wyoming-based
and if you look deeper you’ll see that he is absolutely not allergic to getting dark money, money from packs that don’t tell anyone where this money is coming from. You can thank citizens united for his still remaining in the Senate.
I love how he talks about how a red flag law could hurt law-abiding citizens. DUI laws are exactly the same thing. no one would even consider saying that the DUI laws hurt law-abiding citizens but when your money comes from the gun lobby you will say anything even if it comes out of your ass.
And what hurts me the most is that he only represents a little over a quarter million people when Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris of California each represent a little bit over 20 million people. Taxation without equal representation anybody?
Until we clean the slate in the House and Senate of Republicans that refused to abide by the will of the people and I am talking about 80 to 90% of the American people including 72% of Republicans at the last poll who are looking for and are demanding common Sense gun control.
For someone who claims that the Mueller report completely exonerates him the current occupant of the white house surely is afraid of what Robert Mueller could say in testimony before Congress.
When the Mueller report was preemptively released by attorney general Barr, the good attorney general made sure that the facts we’re twisted around to make Trump look innocent. Then when the actual Mueller report came out the good attorney general flanked by his two henchmen stood there and lied to the American people again. And when Robert Mueller, the boy scout, in an unprecedented move made a 9 and 1/2 minute press briefing once again all the false fact people came out to make it all seems so cloudy. It’s not cloudy, there are 10 count of obstruction of justice that the president would be charged with if he were not the president. 1000 former state’s attorney’s law experts have said this in a letter. Just like climate change deniers the obstruction of justice deniers will lie and lie to make Trump look innocent. He is not innocent and all of the obstruction that attorney general Barr is doing now will come back at him with a Vengeance unless we become a dictatorship. look at attorney general Mitchell and how many months he spent in jail for lying to protect President Nixon.
But even if Robert Mueller sticks only to what he reports in his document it will be doesn’t the stating to Trump because the American people are still not aware of all the malfeasance this man has committed.
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.
