My meanderings about politics, 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.
The best thing that’s happened to the present occupant of the White House lately has been Governor Ralph Northam.
That’s being said let’s talk about Nancy Pelosi. The shade that he caved would be such an understatement. He puts a country or through 35 days of uncertainty for nothing. He got the same exact if not worse deal that’s he would have had if the government had not shut down. He is the worst negotiator ever. this is the man who got mad at President Obama when he announced that we were going to do a measure to pull out from Iraq he said Trump tweets that we’re going to pull out of Syria completely and take half of our troops out of Afghanistan. Oh yes Mr. President that’s exactly the stealth approach you had been talking about. Announce to our hose especially Isis everything we’re going to be doing so they can make their plans for takeover. You’re making your boss Putin very happy because he’s wanted full reign over the middle East forever and now you’re giving it to him. I wonder what he’s blackmailing you with to get that.
Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Daily today said it best, how can Bernie Sanders defends this by saying he was busy, does he not think the president is going to be busy? Does he not not realize that saying that limits his appeal?
I have lost friendships over Bernie Sanders. I don’t understand his appeal. He’s an old Jewish man and that’s coming from another one, me. I believe that he was the reason we have Donald Trump. let’s not make any mistake about it he attacked Hillary for her being a woman who made some speeches after she left office. That attack stuck. I heard it’s from people on the street during 2016 all the time. They said that she was in the pocket of Wallstreet, whose refrain is that?
You run a campaign and it will demonstrate how you will run the country. Case and point:
I’m with Bill Maher here. Enough is enough snowflakes! Why don’t commentators on the right ever apologize for the lies that they spew.
Mika Brzezinski called it like it is. You ignore the death of add American residents, a man who wrote for one of the nation’s leading newspapers, a man who wrote an English so that we can understand, then you are exactly what she said the buttboy of a wannabe dictator secretary pompeo.
When I’m not watching something else, my default channel is MSNBC. It’s on all the time on my DVR so I can always access it. So I do enjoy watching Nicole Wallace in her show deadline White House. I remember the days when I used to yell at the TV screen when Nicole Wallace was being the mouthpiece for George W bush. But now in the age of trump she has remained a moderate and now cannot stomach the shenanigans in the White House.
I find if you are converted to an idea or religion you become more zealous defender of that idea or religion. It’s why some of the most critical voices about trump are former Republicans. There is one thing, I would like to have a chance to sit down with Nicole Wallace and ask her about her position on women’s Reproductive Rights. I hope her position has evolved as she has over the last 2 years.
Finally, somebody verbalized what I have been thinking forever. We need a translator whenever this man start stalking if you want to call it that.
Donald Trump and his incompetent White House cannot do anything correctly. I’m not sure if it was a trait being played on Trump by the outgoing president of Mexico or if it was in confidence, either way it’s sad. Sad…
Count me as one of the close to 4 million people that watched Rachel Maddow last night. As well as the record numbers of people that watched MSNBC all day. NBC used to have Thursday night as must see TV, well on Tuesday MSNBC was must-see TV. The Barrage of news coming out between the 1 and 2 p. M. Hour was overwhelming. Nicole Wallace and her deadline White House show had their usual cast of characters. The interesting part was that for the first time I was hearing cell phone notification sounds. That’s because the news was moving so fast that her panelists did not want to be left out in the cold. She did a great job and I am so happy for MSNBC. Perhaps they’ll bring back their moniker of Leaning forward.
Fox News had its head in the sand when the guilty verdicts for Paul manafort and the guilty plea by Michael Cohen were being announced. Michael Cohen got immunity on one count and implicates a candidate, an unnamed candidate in election fraud. I wonder who that candidate could be?
CNN and MSNBC or covering the story in full, while Fox News worth attacking illegal immigrants.
Fact checkers did a study on the three networks and found that Fox News lied or gave misinformation 35% of the time. MSNBC that the same 23% of the time and CNN 20% of the time. Fox News should just drop the word news and call itself what it is Fox Propaganda.
When you live in a den of Thieves who do you accuse when something is stolen?
I have never understood why anyone would like Rudy Giuliani. He was an unlikeable mayor who did a terrible job at running the city. And his time since 9/11 has been anything but spectacular. Now, this drooling excuse for an attorney he’s trying to make what is obviously a crime into a nothingburger, to quote one of the future co-conspirators.
I’ve said it before, Michael Cohen has no pedigree but even a liar like Michael corn can be corroborated by a second Witness. All of those people at the Trump Tower pre-meeting are subject to be interrogated and perhaps even be charged and one of them is going to flip. And that one would be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, in this case the camel’s back is the Trump Administration. And I don’t want to hear anything about a president Pence, he was in charge of the transition and therefore neck deep in the crud of this Administration.
You rarely see on television someone who is being subpoenaed by Grand Jury come on the air live and say for all to hear that they are not going to comply with a grand jury subpoena. Well in fact that happened this morning California time, on MSNBC in an interview with Katy tur. Sam nunberg a former campaign aide for Donald Trump says that he will not comply with grand jury subpoenas. And he is to appear on Thursday. He claims that he does not want to reveal text messages between him and Steve Bannon and others. He complains that this whole process is bankrupting people. Well, if you thought that things were fishy it was your duty as a citizen to go in and say so to the authorities. But instead you stayed quiet and now you cry foul.
Further he says that after being questioned by the special prosecutor he got the feeling that the special prosecutor has something on President Trump. That put a spring in my step today. On a day that I hear that our secretary of state has had a hundred and twenty two million dollars how to fight infusions by the Russians in our elections and has spent nothing. The only reason it’s even in the state Department’s budget is because it was forced upon him by the two congressman who budgeted this money in the first place. This is a White House clearly bent on doing Putin’s bidding. Everything they’ve done from the trade War to refusing to do anything about the 2018 elections to the candidate himself asking for Russian Aid in unveiling Hillary Clinton’s emails all point to collusion and more importantly to obstruction of justice.
Today’s Revelations by Sam nunberg lend Credence to why the special prosecutor must continue his work.
