Senate intelligence leaders: Russians schemed to help Trump – POLITICO

This has been a given since the election. And yet it’s taken all of this time for the leaders of our nation to accept the truth that Russia wanted Trump as the President of the United States and they did everything in their power to make that happen. To say otherwise is to be unamerican and unfortunately there are a lot of those unamericans around the Republican Party.

So when Trump in that Infamous interview with Lester Holt where Trump says you know that thing about how firing Comey would look bad about that Russia thing, yes it looks really bad

The race to replace Paul Ryan is on – POLITICO

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.

Oversight chairman probes Pruitt’s $50-a-month condo deal – TheHill

You know Scott Pruitt is done, and I don’t mean medium rare. I mean chared to the Bone done, when he gets a republican member of Congress to go against Trump. He spent Millions on his personal security. Went to Morocco of all places to sell natural gas. Why does the EPA administrator need to go to Morocco to sell natural gas? Is that in the EPA administrator job duties? He built a soundproof booth because he thinks he’s Get Smart. The Washington Post now is saying that three White House officials have confirmed that Pruitt lied on Fox News to Ed Henry when he said he knew nothing about the ridiculous pay raises he gave to his friends from Oklahoma. In fact he’s the one who approved them. He’s turned the EPA into the environmental pollution Administration and I just plain don’t like him.

I feel like he may be let go over the weekend when less people are watching the news although the president may be too occupied with watching the Masters on Golf Channel like he was doing wow on a flight on Air Force One. Can you imagine if President Obama was caught watching the Golf Channel on Air Force One? It would be full confession investigations right now. Fox News would be blowing up. We did watch his cabre of people chowing down on our food and it was disgusting, especially Steven Miller.

Aren’t we all tired of winning, this winning has to stop. Now everything we buy from China is going to go up in price a nice tax increase for the poor and the middle class. Winning that’s all we do is win. I can’t wait till this winning is over.

Trump said he was ending catch-and-release, I didn’t know it was going to be in his cabinet.

Trump threatens new tariffs (Taxes on us) on another $100B in Chinese imports – POLITICO

Did you ever think why they call it a trade War? One side protects the other side counter-attacks and so on and so on and so on until it becomes a real war. What if China start selling off the trillions of US Treasury Bills they have? Some would say that would not be in their best interest, but in a trade War…

If he’s not directed by Putin then Trump is following along perfectly in the plan that Putin has for us. Dismantle our Partnerships, dismantle NATO, and make our allies mistrust us. So far Trump is doing exactly that.

And what happened to Republicans being all for free trade? It’s amazing how quiet GOP leadership has been, or can we still call it leadership?

Poll: Majority of Americans say they are not seeing change in paychecks due to tax cuts – The Hill

Surprise, surprise, $5 or $15 a paycheck is not making a big splash with voters. I bet you the millions that the billionaires are getting is making a huge splash. Senator Kennedy from Louisiana, a republican, said that the latest omnibus budget was Congress peeing down the leg of the voters. I will go one step further the only thing that’s going to trickle down from this tax cut to the average individual will be urine.

The Saint of the Republican Party, Ronald Reagan, coined the term trickle down economics. It did not work then it does not work now it will not work. Rich people keep every penny they get a tax cut they don’t spend it. They may buy a new house but it won’t make a blip in the economy. Poor and middle class individuals basically spent almost everything they get in their paycheck and when they get money it’s spent and it makes the economy grow. It’s why the Democrats always give the Republicans a great economy to ruin.

Democrats expand battleground, target 101 GOP seats – NBC News

I consider myself a pragmatist. So 271 days before elections are to happen is not a place that I’d like to make predictions about. That being said I believe that the mood of the country is energized and looking to get back to some form of normality. This President and especially this party has gone bankrupt. What is happened to the party of Law & Order? We’ve been attacked in the most important part of our democracy, our elections, and the Republicans say and do nothing. This is very short-term because what’s happening with the Republicans today can easily happen with them regrets and some other election.

I have one more question for this Administration. Why have you not put into place the sanctions that voted on by over 500 members of Congress and signed by you ? Russia has a strange grip and control over this presidency and it is time for us in the resistance to go and make sure that everyone we know and every part of the country votes and votes the way they believe. I’m not telling people to vote one way or the other I’m just telling him to go out and vote because having only half of the population making these important decisions is not the way for the democracy to thrive.

I hope that the Democrats can reach this lofty goal and that the Senate goes into play because without the legislative branch behind the resistance we have lost.

No Fortune 100 CEOs Back Republican Donald Trump – Wall Street Journal

If there’s one thing that rich people have in common is how well they can sniff out a con. Donald Trump is first and foremost a con man. So it’s not very surprising to hear that rich people are giving him none of their money. Even Sheldon Adelson who gave Romney over four hundred million dollars in 2012 to defeat President Obama has only shelled out 4 million dollars for Trump. With Republicans Falling by the wayside in their support of trump I hope that the American people understand what a con man we have running for president. If this is an article in the Wall Street Journal, a Bastion of Republican ferveur,  this is not going unnoticed.

Reince Priebus GOP chairman says he’s “apoplectic” regarding Trump

Sometimes people say things using words that are difficult to understand for the majority of people on purpose. Republican chairman Reince Priebus could have just said I’m having a stroke over Trump. Instead he used the word that most people would have to look up to understand. And that’s kind of the definition of the Republican Party today.

 That being said the media is seriously talking about a path for the Democrats to get the house. With Fox News poll out day giving Hillary a 10-point lead over Trump and I to a race and a nine-point lead over Trump in a four race one can understand why the Republican establishment is freaking out.

The Republican Party can look itself in the mirror to see why there is a Donald Trump as their presidential candidate. When President Obama came into office right after his inauguration day Matt and said they would become the party of no blocking everything President Obama try to do. In doing so they have created a subclass of people white people who don’t have a good education and therefore cannot get work. This class has now had eight years of misery and they’re looking for a messiah. And the Messiah they chose is Donald Trump. Unfortunately he’s a false Messiah because Donald Trump is only looking to help the rich.

Pam Bondi and Rick Scott will speak at GOP convention – Miami Herald

Oh how the once-mighty Republican Party Has Fallen. The Republican party of Donald Trump can’t even get media whores  to speak on primetime Network television. Some of the least popular people in the United States political scene will be speaking. That and a couple of has been football and basketball coaches. I am making plans not to watch the spectacle. Anna spectacle is exactly what it’s going to be.

After Nice Attack, Newt Gingrich Says Muslims Who Believe In Sharia Should Be Deported To Combat Terrorism

It seems that Newt Gingrich is upset that he was not chosen to be Donald Trump’s running mate. In the chaos in suing the attack in the south of France he thinks that if he makes provocative statements like this perhaps Donald Trump will change his mind. The man is actually campaigning for vice president. On his Facebook page he went on about how much more qualified he was then my pants. He said that he had a national recognition and audience where’s my pants was wholly from the Midwest. This is rather pathetic. It is indicative of the state of the GOP in 2016. Newt Gingrich, when he has Speaker of the House, closed down the government an impeached President Clinton laid the groundwork for what’s happening in 2016 20 years later.

I don’t want the Republican party to disappear. I want the Republican party to get back on its mens and become a center-right party and not this extreme right party with demagogues as its nominee.
