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.
You hear the word Patriot and you think of something old-fashioned. Or some people think of football, but I think about country over party. When I was a kid and I was against what the Democratic president was doing in Vietnam I protested. I have basically voted straight democratic but I have eyes and ears and if my party was doing the things that the Republican party is doing right now I would jump ship.
So we see people like George Conway and judge Napolitano spit starting to speak out.Republican senator Richard Burr sent out a full subpoena to Don Jr because the Mueller report says that Don Jr refuse to answer questions but that there were questions in their minds as to whether or not he had lied to Congress. He lied to Congress the Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. These little cracks in the Fox network will start making larger and larger fissures because this is not sustainable. watching a president dismantle our country, put the worst people into positions and attack his opponent is not America it’s the dictatorship that Trump wants to create.
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.
What some people will do for just a little bit of attention. Let’s not forget this is the same Romney who went begging for the job of Secretary of State and was made to look like a fool by the current occupant of the White House.
you could tell him this picture that Trump was going to screw with Romney. You would think that Romney would become a thorn in Trump’s side. Sure he makes these kind of statements that he is shocked at his actions but he vote with Trump even when it means voting to lift sanctions against Russian oligarchs.
Romney is no Patriot he is an opportunist.
A true patriot would say that he would go along with the articles of impeachment that are so so needed against this criminal president.
It must feel like they were just told there was no Santa Claus. PizzaGate, child slave trade markets, all the other idiotic things that they came up with in their cult-like beliefs are all going down the drain.
I hope the sting they are feeling today will last for the next 18 months and they don’t go out and vote for Trump. It’s quite clear now that the dust has settled and smart people have read them all a report or what we can see of it that’s Trump was not indicted or brought up on charges because of the Justice department’s weird regulation that a president cannot be indicted while in office. Robert Mueller made it quite clear and its final pages that when or if the Congress decides to impeach Trump then criminal prosecution can follow because statute of limitations would not be running out at that point.
I’m a little disappointed and not hearing from Nancy Pelosi today. I know she’s in Europe but I believe there is these newfangled things called telephones or Internet, television camerasshe is an effective leader of the democratic party until we have a nominee and we needed to hear from her. That being sent I think the Democrats have the wind in their backs now as I’ve said so many times before Republicans win by cheating did the Democrats know how to lose better than anybody else on the planet.
At least the night as I lay my head on the pillow I go to sleep knowing that there is a larger crook in the white house then even Richard Nixon was. Richard Nixon made the mistake of recording his crimes something that Trump did not do. I don’t think the shoes of all dropped. Mother farmed out so much of the work that did not involve Russia or collusion and the difference offices of the Department of Justice across the country will follow suit as well as the FBI. This is not over.
Yes, I am a partisan Democrat and very proud of that. When my dad came to this country he saw which side was good and talk me the same.
Republicans win because they cheat. Democrats lose because they’re good at it.
I have watched a litany of amazing people who ran for president and did not win because Republicans cheat
Let’s start with Nixon, Hubert Humphrey was the vice president under Lyndon Baines Johnson and would have been a wonderful president of the United States but Nixon had to cheat it’s called Watergate.
George McGovern who ran in 1972 and who received my first vote in a presidential election. He ran against Nixon cheats.
After the Fall From Grace that Nixon suffered Gerald Ford immediately pardon him when he became president. A move I’m sure that Mike Pence would emulate in a second if he got to be president. Jimmy Carter 1 in 1976 when the United States needed a change from all of this cheating.
But never fear Ronald Reagan came to the scene and went and negotiated behind Jimmy Carter’s back to release the Iranian hostages. he made Jimmy Carter look weak and one of the best presidents we ever had lost in his re-election bid. You all know Jimmy Carter has one of the most amazing ex-presidents who even had his current age is building homes for the needy.
Al Gore won the election against George W Bush, but the Republicans cheat and because of the mess that the State of Florida is we got the wrong man to be president and we got to Wars that we still are in because of that. Think about what an Al Gore presidency would have done for our planet, instead of making videos he would have been able to actually make policy that would have reversed climate change in time for all of what’s happening right now not to have happened.
In 2004 John Kerry a military hero was Swift boated by the cheating Republicans and made to look like a deserter. This is coming from a president who had never done anything except to avoid military service. George W Bush came from a family of military service but he had nothing to do with it.
They try to cheat against President Obama but he was good and he had moderately honorable opponents.
Which takes us to present day and the cheater in Chief who currently occupies the White House. He colluded with Russians, wikileak, and anyone else he could get to cheat himself into the White House.
so it’s not surprising that tomorrow when the Mueller report comes out they would have already cheated. They are going to try to eclipse the Mueller Report with news coverage of their own but the American people are smarter than that and I think they’re going to see through it.
Always remember Republicans win because they cheat.
Attorney General William Barr should be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life because he can look at history books and see. Attorney General Mitchell went to jail for what he did for Nixon during Watergate. May William Barr suffer the same fate.
Talk about being conflicted, Trump is the most conflicted individual that ever has been in the White House and I include Andrew Jackson in that comparison. To say that the former FBI director is conflicted and that he has 17 Democrats is a lie. And if Democrats are angry it’s because we have a sham of a man in the White House. This liar in Chief needs to go and all the rain in the world could not stop them from spewing his hatred out. Rudy Giuliani should go out to pasture because he’s doing no good to this president. I never like Rudy Giuliani even when he was called America’s mayor. He was never my mayor.
I don’t think the Paul manafort plea deal is what is stirring the hatred in the White House. I think that it’s the fact that Michael Cohen Trump’s personal attorney is singing Like a Bird to the prosecutors. when Trump says that Paul manafort was a part of his campaign for 49 days it’s a lie but he was only part of the campaign for a little bit over 5 months. And yes he knows about what happened in the infamous Trump Tower meeting. He also until yesterday owned a condo in Trump Tower on the 27th floor. but Michael Cohen on the other hand knows all the dirt and he can put Jared Kushner, DonnyJunior, and Ivanka in jail.
The hatred coming out of this White House is spreading. I just read a story that a a National Guard member helping the victims of the hurricane use the white power salute to a reporter that was covering the disaster. This man in the White House is not just a liar in Chief, he’s the divider in Chief.
I have a couple of things to say here. First and foremost, ignorance of the law does not excuse you from the law. The defense that is being melted for Donald Trump Jr is that he didn’t know it was against the law to get opposition research from a foreign country. I am not a politician but if a foreign adversary came to me while I was running a campaign the first thought would be to go to the FBI and not to say I love it. They keep saying that collusion is not a crime. Yes there is no statute that uses the word collusion. But collusion describes a series of events that lead to getting into a crime.
But what’s more telling is the fact that this President is seemingly throwing his son under the bus. the reason that Rudy Giuliani doesn’t want Trump to have an interview with the special counsel is because he knows he’s going to lie. This tweet clearly states that he knew nothing about it but we know that this man is a stickler for details and would not have had a meeting during his campaign that he did not know about of this importance.Granted he has the pardon power and granted his supporters will forgive anything from this president but unfortunately for this President his hardcore supporters are about 30 to 35% of the population, not enough to win an election.
As an aside, it’s ironic how all of these Republicans who I could not stomach listening to, including Ruth Marcus, have now come out against this president. It is heartening that they understand the country security is more important than anyone presidency. I just wish members of Congress that have an R next to their name would grow a spine and start defending our country and The Oaf they swore. unfortunately, I believe the prospect of the elimination of the capital gains tax is more important to them then our country’s security. Capitals gains tax is levied on mostly very rich people and that’s their donor base.
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.
For a failing newspaper the New York Times sure has it’s shit together while probing deep into this dark and brooding White House. Let’s face it these are not confidential memos but rather Public Relation documents put out so that when they try to say the president is above the law they can point to these false documents and say look here it is.
Representative Adam Schiff of California said it best, this President, no president is above the law. And Donald Trump above them all it’s certainly not above the law. He and his corrupt family have infested the White House like roaches or termites. There will be a cleansing and just like Jimmy Carter came after Nixon an unlikely president will be our next leader. Who would have thought that the Great and Mighty Nixon would be replaced by a peanut farmer from Plains Georgia. Basically an unknown quantity on the political scene and yet he became president.
I watched Bernie Sanders last night on Bill Maher. I was not and have not been a Bernie Sanders supporter. I was all in for Hillary Clinton from the beginning hell I was all in for Hillary Clinton in 2008 until she withdrew her candidacy. And as much as I think that nominating someone of my own faith, a Jew, is a mistake I guess the same thing could have been said about nominating Barack Obama, an African American. Bernie makes sense for these times and if we’re going to Unite the Democrats we need to do it with someone who doesn’t seem bought in any way shape or form and Bernie Sanders is that. I never thought I would say this.
Just one more thing, just in case you think he’s got a great legal team, they cited the wrong federal statute for obstruction of justice in this so-called confidential memo.
