Reporter presses McConnell on if it’s racist to tell his immigrant wife to ‘go back to her country’ – TheHill

I want to remind the much-maligned Main Stream Mediathat we the voters of the United States of America are their customers. Whatever happened to follow-up questions? it hurts me so much when I used to watch, I no longer watch it, meet the Press or any other of the talk shows in the morning and a question is asked it’s sidestepped and no follow-up is given. I understand that these politicians are blackmail in a way reporters by telling them that they’re not going to give them access if they ask hard questions. excuse me, the politicians need the media just as much as the media needs the politicians. If the mainstream media wants to keep us on their side they need to get a backbone something that seems to have slipped out of their collective bodies on January 21st 2017.

as far as Margaret Chao and Mitch McConnell’s answer or lack of one somebody needs to press him on this question. She came here immigrant not like three of the members of Congress that president asshole in the White House set to go back to their countries. He said that she came as an eight-year-old and learn the language. He forgot to mention that her family owns shipping companies in China and are multi-millionaires if not billionaires. oh poor Margaret Chao she came here as an 8 year old have to learn the language. My parents moved me to France when I was seven I learned the language, move back here when I was 12 didn’t speak a word of English and I learned a language oh me then?

Trump is a racist, Mitch McConnell is a racist and his wife should understand that but money in a republican household seem to matter more than their beliefs. I’m sorry I’ve come to understand that Republicans care more about money than anything else. I watched the former congressman from South Carolina say that he did not want to talk about Trump’s racism but rather about the fact that the budget was ballooning. When Chris Hayes asked him if he did not believe that when a Republican president was out of office and a Democrat was in the Republicans will start becoming fiscal Hawks he refused to answer. This is the same Mark Sanford that…

From June 18 until June 24, 2009, the whereabouts of Sanford were unknown to the public, his wife and the State Law Enforcement Division, which provides security for all South Carolina governors, garnering nationwide news coverage. The absence of Governor Sanford was first reported by Jim Davenport of the Associated Press.[37][38] Lieutenant Governor André Bauer announced that he could not “take lightly that his staff has not had communication with him for more than four days, and that no one, including his own family, knows his whereabouts.”[39]

Before his disappearance, Sanford told his staff that he would be hiking on the Appalachian Trail and while he was gone he did not answer 15 cell phone calls from his chief of staff, Scott English; he also failed to call his family on Father’s Day.[40]

Trump steps up attacks on progressive congresswomen, says they ‘hate our country’ and Israel – NBC News

Just like a lot of things this President does not understand what patriotism is. He’s truly ignorant about what it means to be the citizen of a country. This is the definition of a patriot:

Trump thinks just because he says it it’s right. Unfortunately he has now lied over 12,000 times in office and so truly it’s hard to tell what he believes other than the fact he will try to remain in office under any circumstance. He loves dictators and wants to be one. So when he attacks these Congress people he’s attacking the foundation of our country. Freedom of speech is the first amendment to our constitution and yet he seems to want to defend the 2nd amendment which kills people a lot more.

I support Israel but not above my country. My dad worked for the state of Israel and I think he would feel the same way. We are Americans proud citizens of the United States of America. Israel is an ally but just like all allies they can do wrong. Israel is being run by a corrupt government and there is so many things going wrong with them that it is hard for me as an American to support everything that comes out of Netanyahu’s mouth. What has being patriotic for the United States been synonymous with being patriotic for Israel? It’s perverting what patriotism is and trying to divide our nation. Jews see what’s happening with the children in cages and it brings back horrible memories of the Holocaust.

just because Trump came from a white country and he imports his wives from Slavic countries doesn’t mean he is not an immigrant just like 99% of us in the US. When he starts showing me his native American status then perhaps I will change my point of view but until then stop telling people they should leave our country, people who say that the other should leave their country should be the ones leaving the country.

Justice Department lawyer defends herself after viral video on child migrant treatment – NBC News Exclusive

When you have a job to do you either do it or you go home. Saying that she wasn’t well prepared to make the arguments in front of a three-judge panel makes absolutely no sense. To say that it was selective editing is not true. To post this to her friends on Facebook is appalling. I don’t care how long she’s been with the justice department she needs to apologize not only to asylum-seeking migrants and their children who are being terribly treated but to the United States of America and the community of the world. This is a disgrace. Any other countrybthat had done this would have been condemned buy another administration. Instead it’s the United States that should bow its head in shame.

This administration claims its Christian values. Truly this is what they consider Christian values?of course this is the same president that said that he did not rape this woman because she wasn’t his type. Does that mean if a woman is his type he be okay with raping her?

If this is making America great again I want nothing of it.

This is straight up child abuse, no ifs ands or buts. And you can lay this at the feet of trump who last week said he was going to do exactly this to the children coming across the border seeking rightful asylum in our country from scary situations in their home countries.

Lawmakers to decide on Mueller testimony this week, Schiff says – POLITICO

Robert Mueller has been the disappointment of the decade. The problem is that his investigation was ruled and run by the Republican Department of Justice. The Department of Justice used to have quasi independence from the political parties but that has slowly been chipped away. Even if Independence was the goal Republicans wanted you to think that it wasn’t. Case in point when attorney general Loretta Lynch met with President Clinton on board a plane during the 2016 campaign the Republicans made it seem that it was some sort of conspiratorial meeting. There was nothing to conspire about. Benghazi? The emails? My God these so-called scandals pale in comparison to what Trump does on a daily basis.

Everyone thought that Rod Rosenstein was some kind of non-partisan hero. That was so wrong. It was best illustrated on the day that he stood behind attorney general Barr wild bar lied about what was reported in the Mueller report. Mueller’s boss has made sure that he could not do his job. He never interviewed Trump nor did he ask him any questions other than the ones that did not involve obstruction of justice and even those were sent to an attorney and you know that Trump never even looked at them.

I will set the record straight, Republicans cheat and that’s how they win. I am so worried that they are going to win again.

to the members of the House judiciary committee. Subpoena Mueller and make sure that his testimony is open and not in a closed session. The American people need to hear the 10 times that Trump obstructed Justice from Mueller’s mouth. Remember that’s lady who was at the Town Hall that Justin amash did last month. When asked she said that she had never heard Trump had done anything wrong in the Mueller report. She clearly said that it’s because she watches nothing but conservative news outlets. Even Fox won’t be able to hide Mueller’s testimony. And that’s why it needs to be open and televised.

A Would-Be Trump Aide’s Demands: A Jet, a Future Cabinet Post and More – NYT

Kris Kobach is the scum of the Earth. You know him because he’s the one who doesn’t want minorities voting. So of course the Trump Administration looking for the best people are asking him to be in Trump’s cabinet, and as the Earth would do he is demanding a list of perks to take the job.

Can you imagine, and I’ve said this before on this blog, if let’s say either President Obama or a president Hillary Clinton had had an idiot like this guy asking for these perks what the Republicans head’s would do in unison?

Explode!

And this from the “fiscally responsible” conservative Republicans! A Private jet on call!

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.
