Wyden Slams Republican FEC Commissioners for Blocking Probe of NRA, Possible Campaign Finance Violations – Newsweek

I hope alarm bells are going off all over the country and ringing loudly in Washington. Our democracy is being attacked and the present administration is walking mean it. They understand that they’re cozying up to dictators means that dictators want Trump to stay in office. This is not a conspiracy theory at all, this is being done in plain sight by Trump. His love affair with Putin, Kim jong-un and even the leader of China Ximakes these people want him to remain in office. What better way to keep him in office but to rig the election.

I watched last night the Democratic chairman of the Federal election commission almost apoplectic almost be apoplectic regarding the fact that her fellow commissioners of the Republican persuasion refuse to look into anything that has to do with Russia and election interference. This is only inviting more interference by every single dictatorship that Trump has weirdly embraced. I think that if you see him getting close to start dealing with Iran it’s because he knows Iran has the ability to rig our elections as well and he doesn’t want any of the players who will attack our democracy in 2020 not be on his side. There should be no his side there should only be the site of America, the United States of America.

There should be no his side there should only be the site of America, the United States of America.

If this is #MAGA2020 I want nothing to do with it.

Fox News Poll Shows Near-Record Disapproval Rating for Trump After Mass Shootings – Newsweek

If there’s one thing the current occupant of the White House response to is poll numbers. Fox News polls have always been favorable towards him and this must be quite a shock. You couple that with the fact that the stock market fell almost 900 points today, the stories about Mitch McConnell and Russia, the downright falling apart of our foreign policy across the world and you can see a president that’s now in a corner. usually he responds to this by making some Grand gesture which he never follows through with. My prediction is that he’s going to say that he is going to be the one to finally get some sort of law on the books to end gun violence but in the end he will say the Democrats did not agree to some odd thing that he had asked for and pulls away from the agreement.

This is been a week where you have seen him show signs of wear and tear. After not wanting to criticize the Chinese government for its atrocities on the people of Hong Kong today he said that they need to be humane to the people of Hong Kong. he picked the new fed chairman, and picked him, and today he attacked it mercilessly for not lowering interest rates. Does this man understand that interest rates are at an all-time low for an economy of this magnitude and that if it goes south the economy can only be boosted by interest rate adjustments down but if it’s at zero where do we go ? Give more money away from our Treasury?

There’s 550 days before the election so much can happen I just hope that he continues on his path of self-destruction because that’s the only way we’re going to get him out of the White House.

After Donald Trump Declared Arnold Schwarzenegger ‘Died’ the ‘Terminator’ Star Said ‘I’m Still Here. Want to Compare Tax Returns?’ – Newsweek

Arnold Schwarzenegger was the only Republican I have ever voted for. I regretted doing it but I thought he was a different kind of Republican. In office he was not. but out of office he is taking on a different persona. Gone is the guy who built a tent in front of the state house so he could smoke his cigars and instead he is the guy sticking daggers into the bull coming out of the White House.

I have a conundrum. I know that’s Trump is hiding something in his tax returns but the Democrats in the house are mounting what seems like a half-hearted way of trying to get them. Are they afraid that they are going to show nothing wrong? Come on this man worked real estate in New York for umpteen years there are going to be skeletons and that proverbial tax returns closet. so why are the Democrats not pushing as hard as they should? I’ll let my readers comment on that.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham Reportedly Involved in Scuffle With North Korean Security at DMZ – Newsweek

I am all for peace. But capitulating 2 strongman dictator that killed his own people and gets a much-needed photo op with the president of the United States that I do not condone. Illustrative of the fact that this illegitimate ruler of North Korea is not good people is the way his military true YouTube our press. There is no freedom of the press in North Korea and they wanted nothing of what America stands for within the demilitarized zone.

I wish the current occupant of the White House witch spend as much time with Iranian officials. We had a perfectly good denuclearization plan with Iran but Trump tore it up because it was something that President Obama did. It seems that anything that President Obama did Trump is jealous of whether it be a ranian denuclearization, the affordable Care act or more importantly the Paris climate Accord.

Let’s hope this new press secretary at the White House will continue in defending freedom of the press when she gets back to the White House the same way she did in North Korea.

Ex-Trump Supporter: I Was ‘Really An Idiot’ to Think He’d Be a Good President – Newsweek

Have you ever bought something once you got home you realized you had been conned? Buyer’s remorse? I guess that’s what a lot of people who for some reason had a weird dislike for Hillary Clinton are feeling after two-and-a-half years of this presidency.

What’s surprising is the number of people willing to say this in public. MSNBC is littered with people including some of their anchors who were Republicans that I yelled at while they served under different in administrations who are now either Independents or straight up Democrats. I don’t think it’s just Trump. I think if you throw into the mix Mitch McConnell and the hypocrisy of a lot of leaders in Congress like Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz you see why people are having their come to Jesus moment.

Trump is a con man. What’s so funnythe word con man that Trump hates so much is becoming synonymous with him on Google searches. Good for yourself, do Trump con man as a search and see what happens.

Today Trump pulled back from the brink of war with Iran. I think he finally realized that he has calmed himself into the presidency and I don’t think he wants that job anymore. Maybe that’s why he is making so many errors including all of these undisciplined interviews across what he called fake news media networks.

Is the Republican party Doom to be on the junk pile of History? Can’t say that. Americans have very short memories case in point is how they are looking with nostalgia upon George HW Bush and his presidency even though he took us into an unnecessary war and was the cause of a near world depression. You put him next to Trump and he looks great.

I’m hoping that this man is not re-elected but until I watch him leave the White House I won’t believe anything about what people are prognosticating.

‘COUPLE OF FACEBOOK ADS’: JARED KUSHNER DOWNPLAYS RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE AS HE BLASTS INVESTIGATIONS – Newsweek

Let us not forget who we’re dealing with here. This is the guy who is friends with the guy that murdered an American journalist and then cut him up into pieces. have we ever heard a single disparaging remark about Muhammad Bin Salman from the Trump White House?

My favorite is watching Secretary of State pompeo testifying all regarding the Jared Kushner Middle East peace plan.when asked when we will see this peace plan he refused to give a timeframe and said it could take as long as 10 years. I’m hoping in 10 years we don’t hear Trump’s name everyday because he’ll be in jail with his son-in-law.

How convenient that he’s pooping the fact that Russians make sure that his father-in-law got into the White House. Russia if you’re listening please look into Jared kushner’s emails, as if they would ever since they have their guy in the White House and Putin is so happy.

The last time we had a Jared this famous it didn’t end well, ask Subway sandwiches.

TUCKER CARLSON ADVERTISERS INCLUDE A NOAH’S ARK MUSEUM AND MEN’S HEALTH COMPANY: HERE ARE SOME OTHERS – Newsweek

Our country is slowly becoming less and less democratic. That’s democratic with a small d.

With the electoral college now negating votes so that the majority no longer can elect a president especially if he’s or she is a Democrat. the last two Republican presidents were not elected by a majority of the American people would rather by the electoral college.

So what are we to do? Vote with our dollars. It’s the only power we have left and it’s limited. There are some brands that are almost impossible to get around but they seem to be the ones who jumped ship from Tucker Carlson early on.

I say boycott. I remember the first time that’s an organized boycott in the United States worked in my memory. it was the grape boycott organized by Cesar Chavez. We stopped buying grapes and it forced grape producers to start paying not a living wage but at least a better wage than they had been.

So I hope that every advertiser that is not a Noah Museum or some erectile dysfunction drug pulls their advertising from Tucker Carlson and from all of the fox programming that promotes hate and distrust of others.

Hitler would have loved Fox News.

NRA Published ‘Target Practice’ Magazine Headline Next To Picture of Nancy Pelosi, Gabby Giffords – Newsweek

I’m not sure if this is the death throws of an organization that no longer has support even from its own members or is it Pure evil? A little of both maybe.

The new leader of the NRA is Oliver North. Oliver North is used to being subpoenaed because he was right in the middle of the Iran-Contra scandal that play the rate in ministration. Oliver North is not a patriot, the way I see him he is the opposite of a patriot.

How can any organization justify this behavior? I can explain it to you very easily and 5 letters, Trump. In a week where we saw Rodger Stone put a crosshairs, oh I’m sorry I Celtic symbol, over the head of the judge overseeing his case is it surprising that the NRA magazine puts Nancy Pelosi and Gabby Giffords in it’s crosshairs? For those who had been under a rock for the last decade, Gabby giffords was brutally assaulted during a campaign event in Arizona where she was the Congressperson. so you can imagine how onerous seeing this must be to her and her loved ones. She almost died, we watched it on television. And now this despicable organization has the audacity to do this to her.

and it’s last filing the NRA said that it’s about to go bankrupt. As far as I’m concerned it is not only bankrupt fiscally but morally. women 72% of NRA members think that sensible background checks are okay, this organization still holds almost a black male kind of hold over right-wing members of Congress. Each time we have a mass shooting in this country all we hear is prayers for the loved ones. No more, enough is enough, now let’s talk about banning assault weapons, silencers, bump stocks and anything else that is not part of a hunter’s normal Arsenal. Do Hunters use handguns? I don’t think so. Of course I’ve never hunted, it seems absolutely barbaric way of killing a defenseless creature. Yes we meet and yes that’s barbaric and the country is weaning itself off of it.

Dnra needs to be abolished, rubbed out like app parked out cigarettes. This organization used to be an organization that promoted gun safety and now it goes the opposite end of the spectrum and promotes gun fire on victims like Gabby Giffords.

Los Angeles Passes Law for New Businesses to Disclose Any Ties to NRA – Newsweek

I truly believe that living in Los Angeles is a privilege. When I moved here almost 20 years ago I was told that the city would eat me up. Instead the city has embraced me. Living in the city where people have the same mindset as you, for the most part, it’s magical.

So once again I’m so proud of our great City for standing up to the NRA. The NRA has become not only a purveyor of death and violence in our country but also a conduit of dirty money from foreign countries including Russia.

Can someone please explain to me why the NRA would be doing events in Russia. Russia does not allow gun ownership it never made sense.

Business in Los Angeles is also a privilege and if these companies wish to continue doing business here they need to start fussing up to how and why they are tied to the NRA.
