My meanderings about politics, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It seems that someone has grown the semblance of a spine. Paul Ryan has doggedly supported all of Trumps bad behavior. Finally he is saying things that are reasonable.
This means there is no Witch Hunt.
I believe when Trump said that he can pardon himself he crossed a line. The justice system is very clear no one can judge themselves. We are not in a monarchy we are in a constitutional government run by three branches.
Trump thinks he’s King and there’s going to be a time when there will be a metaphorical “Off with the head”, and I hope soon.
I recall hearing, even recently, at Trump rallies the cry drain the swamp. I think instead of draining the swamp, he’s put radioactive material into it and now we have swamp monsters. In an era where bipartisan voices from Congress are rare it is refreshing to see this happening over the case of this pay-for-play situation with the White House. It’s very clear that Trump organization received favorable treatment by the Chinese government and now the result is letting this Trojan Horse into our country.
First and foremost let’s stop calling it Spygate. That’s what 45 wants us to call it and there is no spy and there is no gate. There is a Russia and there is a gate and there for Russia gate. I spy is someone who is put into somewhere as a means of getting information. An informant is someone who sees something that is suspicious and tells the authorities. Here we have an informant not a spy. And until we stop using the stupid word spy because the idiot in the White House thinks that it has good television sound let’s call it what it is Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russians. If his homeland security secretary has not read up on what the intelligence agencies have said, they have said that the Russians helped Trump win the election and did everything in their power to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And the discussion now let’s on to impeachment.
I have long held the belief that because of the way we are treating the Earth it has been trying to wash this off, burn us off, Shake us off, and now since everything we are doing to the Earth is being exacerbated by this Administration it’s trying to get rid of the White House.
Can we say circular firing squad? The administration is fighting with itself over and over again. Now it’s the beleaguered EPA administrator attacking the Secretary of the Interior, I am sure we all wish of the calm days of President Obama.
President Trump said he would drain the swamp instead he brought in the Clowns.
You have to love Republicans, they are always trying to figure out how to stab another Republican in the back.
If Paul Ryan were to resign the odds are against the Republicans being able to have another Speaker of the House. Right now it certainly looks like it’s going to be a democratic house and maybe even a Democratic Senate if the trends in voting continue.
The two candidates who are considering a run for the speakership are both gun Advocates and are to the Right of where the majority of American people are.
