2 dead, several injured in shooting at crowded South Carolina bar – NBC News

Some rules to live by, and. to live longer.

Don’t go anywhere where liquor is served and you can bring guns.

Don’t go anywhere where they misspelled the word School in the name of the establishment.

I don’t want anyone to think that I’m making a joke of two people losing their lives. I am not. I am making a commentary on the fact that there are too many guns in our country and too many places where one can get wasted and bring a gun. Alcohol and guns is not a good mix. Have you ever watched a western ?

I just read that the NRA said that Congressman Beto O’Rourke was their best salesman for AR-15s. Let’s face it they are spitting in the wind right now. Colt the company that holds the patent for the AR-15 has decided no longer to build them for individual private use. The NRA is losing this battle quickly. I’m watching how public opinion is changing just as quickly as it changed for other issues that had been very controversial, like gay marriage.

I may be wrong, I hope not fear God, but I think this pendulum is about to swing really hard to the left. Even in entrenched Israeli politics Netanyahu was not able to scare the Israeli people into re-electing him. So I think that Trump knows this and that’s why the desperation of going to foreign leaders and basically blackmailing them into getting information on his opponent’s. His idiot or Court jester, Rudy Giuliani, goes to Ukraine and leans on the president of Ukraine to get dirt on Joe Biden. Do you hear Democrats doing that? And why are Republicans not saying anything about it? Do they realize that the shoes going to be on the other foot soon and then they’re going to look even more hypocritical.

We need gun control just like Australia and New Zealand implemented. They haven’t had a mass shooting and there murder and suicide rates have gone down to historic lows. Come on America it’s time that we grow up and get rid of our gun toys.

Tillerson: Netanyahu, Israelis ‘played’ Trump – POLITICO

We should have voted in Tony Schwartz as our president in 2016. He actually wrote The art of the deal. The guy we have in office right now doesn’t know how to do a good deal if it hit him in the face. So when former Secretary of State tillerson says that Israel and especially the corrupt Prime Minister of Israel Netanyahu played Trump that is as unsurprising as anything one has heard in the last three years.

This is the most corrupt and inept president we’ve ever had in this country. He insists on running the country as if the 38% that voted for him are the only people who live here. He has stepped over every boundary that was set up by our founding fathers. They never ever thought that the American people would be so stupid as to elect a man like Trump. But we did.

On a similar subject that is big news right now it was really unsurprising that Trump did not deny making a phone call to a foreign leader and subsequently making up a promise that alarmed a whistleblower. He just said that he knew that people would be listening but never denied it. we watch him on television during his rallies and his brain, the brain of a stable genius, wanders more than anything I’ve ever seen can a human brain. He can’t stay on one subject for any length of time. it’s almost like there is a laser pointer and he’s a cat.

Do United States of America and its population has one remedy and that’s in 20/20. We have 400 days to pick someone to run against them and hope that the foreign powers that this man has cozied up to don’t interfere and how we elect our president. I am in no way confident of this outcome. He has made it clear that he would happily accept help for his re-election from Russia. his people are blackmailing Ukraine into trying to get information on potential Democratic rivals. The corruption of this man, the corruption in plain sight, is nauseating, depressing and disheartening.

On a side note, Tillerson and Exxon Mobil are responsible for this climate crisis. 10 billion birds have been in North America in The last 5 ears, our planet is crushing in on itself.

Netanyahu takes a big loss for Trump’s little win against ‘the squad’ – NBC News

I have a very long history with the State of Israel. First I’m Jewish. My dad worked for the state of Israel for 20 years. I worked for them during my face in college. Most of my extended family has moved from France to Israel. So I have deep roots for my love of Israel and wanted to thrive and survive. All of that being said what happened today is unacceptable.

State of Israel was formed in 1947 because of the tyranny of a Nazi, Adolf Hitler. It was meant to be the vibrant democracy springing other democracies in the Middle East. People who move there in its early days suffered but they knew they were building a future for themselves and their future generations. now we’ve come to a crossroads. Benjamin Netanyahu is under indictment. He was not able to form a government and now it’s facing you elections in a few weeks. He is so closely aligned with the current occupant of the White House that they may as well be Siamese twins. So banning to American members of Congress whatever their views goes against everything that Israel stands for.

Benjamin Netanyahu will regret this move. And when American Jewish lobby, AIPEC, a conservative organization that strives to promote Israel in every way condemned this move that’s huge. Donald Trump kills everything he touches I hope he doesn’t ruin Israel.

Donald Trump kills everything he touches I hope he doesn’t ruin Israel.

Even AIPAC split with Netanyahu over the wisdom of Israel’s decision to bar half “the squad” from the country.

Trump steps up attacks on progressive congresswomen, says they ‘hate our country’ and Israel – NBC News

Just like a lot of things this President does not understand what patriotism is. He’s truly ignorant about what it means to be the citizen of a country. This is the definition of a patriot:

Trump thinks just because he says it it’s right. Unfortunately he has now lied over 12,000 times in office and so truly it’s hard to tell what he believes other than the fact he will try to remain in office under any circumstance. He loves dictators and wants to be one. So when he attacks these Congress people he’s attacking the foundation of our country. Freedom of speech is the first amendment to our constitution and yet he seems to want to defend the 2nd amendment which kills people a lot more.

I support Israel but not above my country. My dad worked for the state of Israel and I think he would feel the same way. We are Americans proud citizens of the United States of America. Israel is an ally but just like all allies they can do wrong. Israel is being run by a corrupt government and there is so many things going wrong with them that it is hard for me as an American to support everything that comes out of Netanyahu’s mouth. What has being patriotic for the United States been synonymous with being patriotic for Israel? It’s perverting what patriotism is and trying to divide our nation. Jews see what’s happening with the children in cages and it brings back horrible memories of the Holocaust.

just because Trump came from a white country and he imports his wives from Slavic countries doesn’t mean he is not an immigrant just like 99% of us in the US. When he starts showing me his native American status then perhaps I will change my point of view but until then stop telling people they should leave our country, people who say that the other should leave their country should be the ones leaving the country.

Israel Moves to Hold New Election as Netanyahu Fails to Form a Coalition – NY Times

I just heard on MSNBC that’s Trump is throwing tantrums throughout private wing of the White House and this news cannot be welcome to him or Jared Kushner. Let’s face it Benjamin Netanyahu is a crook who stole from his people. Of course just like Trump supporters BB’s supporters follow him blindly and don’t care that he is corrupt to the Core.

My dad worked for the state of Israel and he got me this incredible gig when I was in college. I talked to spend a week with the leader of Israel while they were planning fundraising for Israel in the seventies. There was a conference every year in Miami Beach and my job was to take care of the Israeli leader and I actually got to spend a lot of time with people like Prime Ministers Golda Meir and Yitzhak Rabin. Now those were Prime Ministers that Israel could be proud of. I hope the Israeli people will elect someone that will leave their country on the path to peace and not a path to war. I think we’ve had enough Wars in our lifetimes.

Obama congratulates Netanyahu on election win

President Obama needs to work with him and he did the right thing. I don’t like the fact that Prime Minister Netanyahu  claims to speak for all Jews. Many of us in the diaspora  want to see peace and he is doing everything a politician does to stay in power and is not looking for peace. I hope his pants on a two-state solution changes. if not we will not be seeing peace any time soon.

US President Barack Obama, seen here in the Oval Office on October 8, 2014, called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his recent election win, after a campaign that soured relations between the two alliesUS President Barack Obama on Thursday called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his recent election win, after a campaign that soured relations between the two allies. Obama spoke to the Israeli leader “to congratulate him on his party’s success in winning a plurality of Knesset seats,” the White House said. Ties have been tested by Netanyahu’s pledge on the campaign trail to oppose the creation of a Palestinian state, which had been the starting point of countless rounds of Middle East peace negotiations. Since the election, Netanyahu has sought to row back on his campaign rhetoric, but the White House has pointedly stated it will review policies that provided diplomatic cover for Israel at the United Nations.
