‘Trump’s son should be concerned’: FBI obtained wiretaps of Putin ally who met with Trump Jr. – Yahoo News

 

Don Jr may very well be the downfall of Don senior. Don Jr never thinks before talking. He has been an embarrassment to his family. And now he is going to cause the downfall of the Trump Administration.

you add in the fact that he is cost the American taxpayers over half a million dollars in Secret Service protection solely for his personal use. He went on a trip to the Middle East to open a new Trump property and that cost the Secret Service $258, 000 then he went on a trip to Paris to to show off to his ex wife that he still was a man and that cost the US taxpayer $250, 000. It’s amazing to me how the supposedly fiscally responsible Republicans are wasting money like it’s going out of style. The people benefiting are the very rich on the backs of the very poor.

The Lost City of Trump – POLITICO Magazine

How did we get a man who has no vision to become the president of the United States? This article talks about a project that Trump planned on being his legacy. Instead it’s a massive failure. Never happened. Remind you of anything?

He is hurting us into a recession, a trade War leading to a economic depression just the things that Hitler used to divide the world into factions that created World War II. Millions died unnecessarily and we as Americans must make sure that he does not get a chance to do this to our country.

Trade wars between allies are unnecessary. That’s why they are our allies. What Trump wants us to be allied with Russia and not with the UK, Canada and the EU. I truly believe he wants to be president for life. I truly believe that he thinks he can create a royal presidency. I truly believe that he thinks that either Ivanka or Jared can take over from him. He looks at North Korea as his model for how he wants United States history to continue. This is a scary time for America and Americans and we must go out and vote. We must donate as much money as we can afford two political parties we believe in. With the likes of citizens united the Koch brothers and those who are aligned with Trump will be pouring billions into elections along with the help of Russia. Give $5 today to the Democratic party and do so each month. Give more if you can.

Facebook accused of conducting mass surveillance through its apps – The Guardian

On November 11th 2017 I deactivated my Facebook account. So here I am, seven months later and 55 pounds lighter.

Sure, there is some inconveniences not to have Facebook but I truly believe that they do not outweigh the infringement upon our privacy and upon the way we think that Facebook is trying to achieve. Deactivating your account is made very difficult by Facebook and the procedure takes about 45 minutes but at the end of the day I don’t miss a single moment of the social media platform.

Flight Records Illuminate Mystery of Trump’s Moscow Nights – Bloomberg

Gotcha!

I am going to be 64 in a week and I am quite aware that the internet exists. I just went on Ancestry and found the ticket to the USS United States that I took in 1962 from New York to Paris. Does the president United States think that his flight records or some sort of secret? It proves how incompetent. He should be nowhere near the Oval Office.

He is a liar, and a bad one at that. He said he did not spend a single night in Moscow and now here it is. I’m with James Comey when he said that if I we were married my wife would never believe that I was with hookers in a Moscow hotel having them pee on the bed the the Obama’s slept on. What a terrible man. He holds such hatred for others. I feel so sorry for him And his soul.

Poll: Majority of Americans say they are not seeing change in paychecks due to tax cuts – The Hill

Surprise, surprise, $5 or $15 a paycheck is not making a big splash with voters. I bet you the millions that the billionaires are getting is making a huge splash. Senator Kennedy from Louisiana, a republican, said that the latest omnibus budget was Congress peeing down the leg of the voters. I will go one step further the only thing that’s going to trickle down from this tax cut to the average individual will be urine.

The Saint of the Republican Party, Ronald Reagan, coined the term trickle down economics. It did not work then it does not work now it will not work. Rich people keep every penny they get a tax cut they don’t spend it. They may buy a new house but it won’t make a blip in the economy. Poor and middle class individuals basically spent almost everything they get in their paycheck and when they get money it’s spent and it makes the economy grow. It’s why the Democrats always give the Republicans a great economy to ruin.

2 Weeks After Trump Blocked It, Democrats Release Rebuttal of G.O.P. Memo {and this White House is going to hate it} – The New York Times

I can say in one word what the release of this memo does, vindication.

Unlike the Republican Nunez memo, the Democratic memo lays out a clear case as to why the fisa court had the right and obligation to put a warrant on Carter page.

Carter page likes to make himself look like a bumbling idiot. I think he’s anything but that. He has spoken ill of the United States in Russia since 2013. He has repeatedly said that He is a conduit to Russia. And he had meetings with Russia after the candidate Trump said that he was one of his leading foreign policy advisors. Now, I’m not saying that this guy is a genius. The current occupant of the White House has a penchant on picking terrible people as his advisors. But I know that the Russians saw Carter page as a wonderful source of information for their intelligence services. They have been cultivating him throughout the Last 5 Years and we’re hoping that he would be one of their Prime Assets in the US.

Now that the Democratic memo has been released I can’t wait to hear this White House attack it, unfortunately it’s too well documented and has sources that are incontrovertible.

NRA’s Wayne LaPierre accuses Democrats of exploiting Parkland shooting in speech – NBC News

Today the NRA is like a wounded animal. They see the power of the young people and they understand that the tide is turning and turning quickly. They will do anything to keep selling more guns. A lot of people think about the NRA has some sort of an organization of gun owners. In fact it’s the lobbying group for gun manufacturers. An interesting aspect of gun manufacturers is that they are the only, the only, manufacturer that is not liable for defects in the manufacturer of their products. If a gun explodes in your hand you can do anything about it they are protected by the law.

Yesterday Trump said that he would consider raising the age for purchasing an assault weapon, he also said that he would consider making it more difficult to buy one through better checks. He also floated the idea of arming teachers. Today the first three ideas are off the table and now all he wants to do is put more guns in the school. This is not acceptable. Teachers, and we’ve all had them, or not there to kill a student or an assailant there there to teach our kids. It seems that Trump is doing everything to destroy our schools. He put in an in-depth Secretary of Education, he is cut funding for schools and teachers now have to buy the supplies for their students with their own money. Or his Russian overlords demanding that he dumb down the United States.

Never again is the rallying Cry of the students and they will not except this so called compromise. It’s not a compromise it’s a complete surrender to the NRA’s demands. The NRA wants more guns because the NRA represents gun manufacturers and please never forget that.

“Who Needs a Controversy Over the Inauguration?”: Reince Priebus Opens Up About His Six Months of Magical Thinking – Vanity Fair

If you’re Sean Spicer you go on Saturday Night Live and make fun of yourself. I guess if you’re reince priebus you go on Vanity Fair and call it the year of magical thinking. In my opinion they both are as guilty as Sin. They helped this President get elected and now has a Stranglehold on our country. All the articles in Vanity Fair or appearances on Saturday Night Live will not wash away their sins, to me they just augment them. How cynical they are thinking they can redeem themselves by telling on the person they swore an allegiance to serve. They are the worst of the worst.

Steve Wynn steps down as CEO of Wynn Resorts amid misconduct allegations – NBC News

Oh how the mighty have fallen. He was a promoter very much in the mold of 45. When the Wynn Resorts open in Las Vegas we and Los Angeles when were bombarded by had of him standing on top of his hotel. It’s a 60-story building and I’m sure they will not let him anywhere near the ledge anymore.

I am never happy when someone is in a bad place but in this case I will make an exception. This man used his position of power to hurt and harass and do all kinds of horrible things to women in the last 40 years. And to quote Ivanka Trump, there’s a special place in hell for people like him.
