McCain’s inner circle planning on having Pence, not Trump, at funeral: report – TheHill

First and foremost I want to remember John McCain as the American hero he was. Captured in Vietnam and held for five years. He was offered a quick release by his captors because his father was an admiral but he said until his Conrad’s who had been captured were released as well he would not leave. He was tortured, beaten and brought to the edge of death more than once. I remember the day he came off the plane to a hero’s welcome. His body may have been broken but his Spirit was not.

To me John McCain has been fun enigma. His autobiography is called maverick and yet one here and against President Obama in 2008 he was anything but. He brought Sarah Palin to the four front and I believe that that has had a profound affect on our politics. He picked her the way Trump pics his nominees without knowing them. She was a long person for the job and she made a trump presidency more acceptable. So it’ll way I do blame cetera McCain for Trump.

Since Trump has been in office McCain has been a thorn in his side but an important votes like the tax plan he went along with the terrible ideals of this presidency. A tax plan that Republicans are walking back now because 1.5 trillion dollars would have easily paid for college for every single American who wants to go. And there would have been lots more left over from that. Instead we gave the rich a tax break and they are never going to spend the money. And the middle class has got a whopping $15 every two weeks in their paycheck!

In the end I wonder if Trump will be attending John McCain’s funeral. I hope not, he is a stain on our country and its institutions and should not be honored.

Cohen got Us Weekly to kill story about alleged Trump Jr. affair: report – TheHill

How many ways can we say that the douchebag does not fall far from the douchebag tree. Or should we use our illustrious president’s new world scumbag, or maybe just playing douche. In any case this does not in any way surprise me. Donald Trump jr. finds it exciting, and I think in the sexual way to kill endangered species. So what’s a little Affair here on the side

Oh, how I long for those days of the Bush twins getting drunk while they were in college.

White House staffer left email passwords on official stationery at bus stop: report – TheHill

First a little bit about what I know regarding Proton Mail. Proton Mail was designed by a group of physicists at the CERN reactor in Switzerland. The reactor was down for routine maintenance and they had a lot of time on their hands and they started thinking about creating a mail system which could not be intercepted by hackers. Unfortunately Proton Mail has one huge problem. You have to input a password in when you send it and the receiver has to put their own password when they want to read it. So what’s happened is that people like me signed up for Proton Mail never used it because they’re not enough people out there who want to do that much work to read an email. So those who use Proton Mail or in two categories. The first category are people who are paranoid about governmental intrusion in their email and the second category are criminals.

That all being said, you can understand why use of Proton Mail in governmental emails should be forbidden. It’s encryption was designed by physicists and if you watch The Big Bang Theory Sheldon has told you how smart physicists are. It’s basically impossible to open unless you’re the NSA and want to spend huge amount of time on trying to open a single email.

This brings me to the second point, when you hire the best people, well the best people in the mind of Donald Trump, this is what happens. This staffer was using proton mail something no staffer in the White House should be using because White House email is already very secure. Perhaps this staffer had his own personal reasons for using it or he was trying to hide something, I won’t speculate on that.

But really, if you’re hiring the best people would they leave their password on White House stationery on a bus bench? And what is this staffer trying to hide?

Report: Donald Trump’s companies at least $650 million in debt – CBS News

Donald Trump has called himself the king of debt, perhaps you should have called himself the Emperor of debt. Ironically a huge amount of the debt is being held by Goldman Sachs. He does not like transparency. People who don’t like transparency are usually doing something wrong. 

Where are his taxes?

RNC confusion: Despite report, boxing champ Mike Tyson isn’t coming to GOP convention – CNN 

In his normal diplomatic way it seems that Donald Trump invited Mike Tyson then disinvited Mike Tyson in a bizarre, well this is Donald Trump, tweet.

The CNN reports that this aging if not plain old group of performers will be making appearances at the Republican National Convention. Some of the groups original members have all died. I can’t wait how this list stands up to who the Democrats will be having. Here is the list quoted from the CNN article:”And for entertainment at some of the ancillary events surrounding the official confab, look for Journey, the Beach Boys, Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry  and Poison frontman Bret Michaels, Bloomberg reports. Other bands slated to perform at events in Cleveland include Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd.” Since none of these groups are real favourite of mine it looks like I won’t be watching the RNC.

Female journalists report harassment from “Bernie bros” supporting Sanders – CBS NEWS

Is this really about Sanders or Trump? I think it may be that there are some hoodlums out there using this as a way of masquerading as supporters but who are truly criminals deep inside.
When this country stops allowing political discourse, we have lost our country.
Yes I know that these are individual cases. But I have been involved in politics for almost a half a century and I’ve never heard of  this kind of behavior. What’s disturbing to me is not what is happening today but rather what we may see in four or eight years. Then the authorities may take matters into their own hands and then our freedoms start being taken away because a bunch of hoodlums are Behaving Badly right now.
I do blame Senator Sanders and Donald Trump for not nipping this in the bud early on in this campaign. When Sanders struck out the part in his press release regarding the violence at the Democratic Nevada convention, the censorship was wrong. Violence should never be ignored or condoned by looking the other way.
