Leaked Documents Allege the NRA Has Been Spending $100,000 a Day on Lawyers – Slate

I’m a blogger, not an investigative reporter. But I’ve got a good sense for numbers. So let’s see 35 million dollars a year on lawyers, 42 million dollars a year to an advertising agency, 60 million dollars towards the campaign of Donald Trump. that’s a lot of money for one nonprofit organization!

The NRA went from a gun safety organization to an organization that protects mass murders and their perpetrators.

the NRA and gun rights organizations in the US love to say that their rights are inalienable under the second amendment. Have we ever looked at the wording of the second amendment? The first words are a “well regulated militia”, regulations are in the first few words of the amendment. It was never meant to be an all out flooding of the market with high capacity and armor piercing bullets. Military-style weapons should be in the hands of the military. their arguments make as much sense as saying that we all have the right to have our own private nuclear Arsenal.

And as far as these leaked documents, they’re coming from Oliver North, one of the sleaziest people that we have had to deal with since the Reagan Era. He was the guy who sold weapons 2 hide from Congress the funding of an illegal act. Wayne LaPierre you go to bed with dogs you’re going to wake up covered in fleas.

The NRA has become a merchant of death and a very corrupt one at that.

WATERGATE’S JOHN DEAN MOCKS DONALD TRUMP OVER MUELLER REPORT: ‘WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU READ 400 PAGES PLUS OF ANYTHING’ – Newsweek

Although Michael Cohen has never had a job in the white house because of the weird nature of trumps businesses he is as close to John Dean of Watergate as we can come to today.

John Dean is absolutely correct in his assessment of the current occupant of the White House’s ability to read books or anything for that matter. He seems to have a problem with even a teleprompter. So to think that he would read 400 pages of what must be for the most part of very dry document, I don’t think so.

Trump now claims that he could read the report anytime he wanted to because he’s President. That may be true but it’s 400 pages!honestly I think the four pages of Pulp fiction that attorney general Barr put out 3 weeks ago is even too long for this President. He would need the cliff notes of the bar four-page memo and even at that I don’t think he’d have the attention span to read it all.

It’s amazing now that Barr has told him what is in the report, Trump no longer thinks we should see it. I think that may be a bit suspicious and I’m not alone. He didn’t get a single bump up in the polls after his fake Victory lap that he did prior to us finding out more about the Mueller report. I don’t know when it will come out but it will come out before the election. Trump thinks he has an ace in the Supreme Court. He did not appoint chief justice Roberts who does not want to make the Supreme Court a political tool of the executive branch. So I think that chief justice Roberts is going to do the right thing. If he votes with the for liberals then we will see the report and I truly believe that Congress is going to expedite this all the way up to the Supreme Court as quickly as possible. It’s important for the American people to find out everything there is to know about the shenanigans during the 2016 election so they can make an informed decision in 2020.

Roseanne Barr blames ABC firing on Michelle Obama – Yahoo News

Bill Maher said of his friend Roseanne Barr there are Mental health problems with her. Blaming others for your own failure is not a mental issue it’s a weakness in character. She got fired from her show because she opened her mouth and let her bigoted opinions come out.

She and Trump agree he’s a stable genius. although watching his actions of late and his inability to speak common words start making us wonder whether or not there is a mental health issue with him as well.

Trump, there is no audit of your IRS tax returns.

Bernie Sanders your taxes are not trapped in TurboTax and your wife knows the password.

Roseanne Barr you got fired because of your own deeds.

Cohen testimony on Trump: ‘He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat.’ – POLITICO

I’m going to be a bit of a contrarian here. I remember Michael Cohen from that CNN Jeanne Moos fit where he refused to answer questions and kept saying say what. I remember Michael Cohen for being the person defending Trump left and right. So here we are.

I keep bringing up Watergate but it’s the only thing that I can refer to within my memory that’s even remotely like what’s happening right now. John Dean was not a good guy and he brought Nixon down. Michael Cohen is not a good guyand I hope he brings the current occupants of the White House down.

Everything in this article is what we already knew about Trump, he’s a racist short, he’s a liar sure, he’s a cheat of course.

his testimony in front of the house tomorrow will be very telling. It’s almost midnight on the East coast so in about 10 hours this spectacle begins.

Bernie Sanders apologizes to women on 2016 campaign who were ‘harassed or mistreated’ – CNNPolitics

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:

Donald J Trump.

I call BS

It’s amazing the links that people will go through to make fools of themselves. You don’t invite the whole news media to an event and then not have the event as promised. These people are full of it and anyone who knows Robert Mueller knows that they are. What a lame October surprise.

Obama slams ‘crazy stuff’ coming out of Trump White House, hits politicizing of Justice Department – NBC News

I’m in constant pain so I have issues with sleeping. I slept a little bit later this morning than normal. I turned on the TV expecting the normal chaos created by the Trump Administration and instead I thought I was having a dream. There was President Barack Obama making one of his amazing speeches. What a way to wake up! He mentioned the t-word by name and called out all of the terrible policies of this Administration. He told us that our vote means something, he gave us the Hope for Change.

Devin Nunes Seeks Intel on Christopher Steele in London – The Atlantic

It’s remarkable that a member of Congress, yes the US Congress, is believed to be a leaker of information and not just any information but information vital to the safety of our country. Devin Nunez has undermined his country’s ability to protect itself from Russians. It is seemingly that he is in some way compromised because of his behavior or actions. The Russians must have something on him. I have no information that says this but if one looks at Behavior then one can speculate. Even our closest ally the United Kingdom refused to meet with him because of fears that he would turn around and leave the information. is this truly someone we want representing us in Congress?

remember this is the Devin Nunes who is the chairman of the house intelligence committee. This is the same Devin Nunez that has done everything in his power to stop the Mueller investigation. This is the same Devin Nunez that has called in for questioning the two highest people fighting Russia in the FBI and tried to crucify them in front of eye closed hearing of Congress which was promptly leaked. This is the same Devin Nunez who should not be reelected as a member of Congress.

Andrew Janz is running against him in November. It’s imperative that we donate to this wonderful candidate. This is not a normal election, 2016 has turned the tide on America and we are seeing our rights and Privileges and safety being the night. Whether it’s the Clean Water we drink or the Clean Air we wish to breathe. So I ordered you to go to his site and give them even one dollar because every little bit will help.

Aides expect Trump to go rogue on Manafort pardon – POLITICO

Great tactician have been defeated by the smallest details. Alexander didn’t realize how hard it would be to rule an Empire that large. Napoleon Bonaparte never thought how he would feed his troops while invading Russia. And I could go on. Now mind you I don’t think of Trump as a great tactician, his tactics car seat of the pants. So I say all this because I’m not sure that he realizes if he pardons Manafort that will make it easier for prosecutors to question Manafort because he has no self-incrimination problems and cannot plead the Fifth Amendment.

So if our fearless leader plans on pardoning Manafort he’s got to do it well into Manafort’s prison term. I’m sure that I am not the only person that has heard pundants talked about this on television. Me thinks that Mr manafort’s family may be listening to it as well and will tell their imprisoned family member that it’s time for him to flip. Yes I use the colloquial that seems to be Trump’s favorite, the language of the mob. He has referred to John Dean, of Watergate Fame, as erect. Yesterday he said in his Fox and Friends interview that he thinks flipping should be illegal.

That’s why I am of the same opinion as Bill Maher who honestly believes, and so do I that this election coming up in about 2 months will be pivotal to the continuation of the United States of America as we have come to know it. Bill Maher gave a million dollars last week and I will be pumping as much money into the Senate as I possibly can to make sure the Democratic candidates win.

Trump Jr. shares fake Trump approval rating on Instagram – TheHill

I was under the impression that the fake news maven, Donald Trump Junior, was off the grid. I guess he’s not off the grid enough to stop putting out false information. This one is really odd. President Trump has never had an approval rating over 50% from Gallup polls since he’s been in office. So why does Donald Trump Junior doctor an image to make it look like he’s at 50% ? These are facts and it’s hard to argue with facts although if you live in that bubble I guess not. Gallup is a right-leaning polling organization. Their numbers are always higher for republicans then from other organizations. On the other hand Quinnipiac polls or left-leaning polling organization and therefore their polls favor a more Progressive agenda. Why would Donald Trump jr. Fake information from one of its allies ? It seems that Samantha Bee calling him de Forrest Gump of White House scandals is very appropriate.
