Manafort’s lawyers taunt Mueller for not tying him to Russian interference in 2016 election – CNNPolitics

First a little bit of editorial comment.

Bravo CNN, once again you prove to be anything but the leader in news. Instead of showing disc traders mugshot you instead show him with Cadillacs in the background. I’m not doing that. So mugshot it is.

Mr. Manafort when you signed the plea agreement with the special council you waived your rights to plead for a lighter sentence. You agreed that if you did not meet the requirements are the plea agreement that the book would be thrown at you. If I had my way I would throw the whole library at you. Your traitor and saying that you were trying to make these bad people better did not work out. everyone that you did business with was a bad person and they remain bad to the core and were thrown out of office except for Putin who is your good friend.

your plea agreement clearly stated that you are not to do anything illegal while you are waiting for sentencing. I guess a criminal to the Core cannot stop himself. So a life sentence is I hope what you are going to get.

Traitor!

Fox News not covering Manafort & Cohen cases instead attacking illegal immigrants

Fox News had its head in the sand when the guilty verdicts for Paul manafort and the guilty plea by Michael Cohen were being announced. Michael Cohen got immunity on one count and implicates a candidate, an unnamed candidate in election fraud. I wonder who that candidate could be?

CNN and MSNBC or covering the story in full, while Fox News worth attacking illegal immigrants.

Fact checkers did a study on the three networks and found that Fox News lied or gave misinformation 35% of the time. MSNBC that the same 23% of the time and CNN 20% of the time. Fox News should just drop the word news and call itself what it is Fox Propaganda.

Rick Gates, testifying in Manafort trial, admits to affair, London apartment – NBC News

I have to admit that Donald Trump has made life more interesting, not in a good way but more interesting.

In October of 2016 I hate it what the FBI director did to Hillary Clinton but then when he stood up to Trump all the progressive started liking him again. then there are the never Trump Republicans somewhere which who have switched either to independent or Democratic party status. And now here comes with Gates. Rick Gates was a swampy a creature as the Swamp has ever produced. He worked with oligarchs and let’s not forget he is the Protege of Paul manafort. So no, he is not someone that I am enthralled with. He’s telling the truth to save his skin and that he had affairs or stole money from his boss or the Myriad of other things that are going to come out in this trial, it still does not negate the fact that he is a swamp creature.

Mueller asking if Manafort promised banker White House job in return for loans – NBC News

When a financial institution lends more than a quarter of its total worth to an individual who has no job, no major assets and no way to repay the loan then why would they do it? They did it because Paul Manafort has something that no one wants to hear that is in power. Look at the machination songs that have gone on regarding Paul Manafort and his illicit activities in Ukraine and in Russia. Paul Manafort is at the center of a spoke that goes out all the way around the White House and is what is scaring the hell out of the White House. Loans like this don’t just happen, they happen because somebody is filling the till on the other side.

There’s a Chinese curse that says may you live in interesting times. Maybe you now understand why it’s a curse.

Apple’s Tim Cook to host Paul Ryan fundraiser amid Trump woes – POLITICO

I shop at Costco and knocked Sam’s Club because I like Costco’s politics. That’s just one example of the many choices I make and how I spend my money. Luckily I’m not an iPhone addict. I have had Samsung Galaxies since their first smartphone was put out and I love them. But if I found out that Samsung was hoarding Paul Ryan I go to HTC or whomever is not. I realize that corporations play both sides of the aisle. But the fact that Apple is Apple makes no sense to me that they would be in cahoots with Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan is all that is bad about the Republican party and one glossy package.
I guess Apple is happy to have Paul Ryan help them sequester funds from the US government so they don’t have to pay taxes on them. They sell their products to American but they don’t want to pay taxes in the country that started their corporation. Shame on Apple.

Paul Ryan not ready to endorse Donald Trump -CNN

Paul Ryan, a media whore, is making sure to milk the most press coverage out of this kabuki dance that he is doing with Donald Trump. I have no doubt that Paul Ryan will eventually endorse Trump. Paul Ryan is also looking at his future. He wants to run in 2020 if Trump loses. And he does not want to be looked upon as one of the architects of what could be a Monumental failure with Trump as the head of the Republican ticket. Paul Ryan is being a politician and that’s what he excels at and that’s about it.

Donald Trump and Paul Ryan Could Not Be Further Apart – NBCNews

When talks, but any kind, don’t go well the talking points are that it is going positively. And that’s all you heard today from the Republicans that met with Donald Trump. It was positive. Over and over again it was positive. You are saying positive way too much.
Paul Ryan actually brought charts into the meeting to try to explain to Trump how things work. I don’t think he got through. Trump did make a point that he is won more votes than anyone before and that his poll numbers are really high. That is very hard to disagree with but I think Paul Ryan is playing the long game. Paul Ryan wants to be president. The main reason he did not want to be speaker of the house and was The Reluctant Bride for so long is that rarely do speakers of the house become president. And he really is power hungry. His misstep in 2012 being the vice presidential candidate to Mitt Romney’s failure is forgivable in terms of the electorate. But jumping on board with Donald Trump and Donald Trump bringing everything down around him is not forgivable.
There’s a Chinese curse that says may you live in interesting times. I guess we are all cursed.

Sarah Palin will work to defeat Paul Ryan in primary for Donald Trump stance – CNNPolitics.com

I wonder if Donald Trump is using Sarah Palin to send a warning shot across Paul Ryan’s bow on today’s State of the Union? Or is Sarah Palin the Loose Cannon that we know her to be? In either case knowing Paul Ryan this is not going to make him happy. She said that she plans to work on defeating Paul Ryan and his upcoming August primary. I don’t think that she has the power to do so but Donald Trump may be able to do it if he puts his mind to it. She said she would Eric Cantor Paul Ryan. It’s going to be interesting to see how the Trump campaign response to this and if they endorse it. This is the most interesting election I’ve ever been alive for. The Republicans made their bed and now they got to sleep in that pigsty.

Ted Cruz tops GOP field for first time in new national poll – CNNPolitics.com

I wish this poll were correct. Unfortunately I’ve learned that these polls are sometimes outliers. A Democrat would have an easy task of beating a Cruz presidential candidate. First his personality is not one that makes you like him. Then you add in his extreme radical ideas and it creates a toxic mix of someone who is not meant to be President.
