Who Is Justin Amash And Why Is He Willing To Go Against His Own Party? – NPR

As far as I can see Justin Amash is a patriot.

I love the backstory in this article from NPR. His parents are both immigrants from the Middle East. I guess Trump would call them Shit-hole adjacent countries, I call them countries.his work ethic is uncompromised. Even as a child he would not go out and play with his friends until he finished his homework. That ended up making him the valedictorian and he has excelled ever since. He’s very young to be in Congress, 39, compared to those old white men that permeate the Republican Party.

And now the Republican party is turning his back on him. But he is not flinching. I love this Twitter give and take what he had with Donald Trump jr.

From the NPR article by Dustin Dwyer

If there is anything that we can take away, that we did not know already, from the George Stephanopoulos interview with Trump is that Trump talks like a mob boss. And so it is not out of character for his son to act like a mob boss also. Although both would be terrible, seriously if anybody watched The Sopranos, Goodfellas are The Godfather movies you’ll know that Trump and his family would not make it very long. But I guess I’ll president has ambitions to be a mob boss. Not very reassuring?

I bring up Watergate a lot on my blog. I guess it thrust me into my love of politics at a very young age. I watched every single minutes of the Watergate hearings on the 13 inch GE PortaColor television that my parents gave me for my bar mitzvah. I had a summer job answering phones and I got my boss to let me watch the hearings on my television what’s on your piece in one year and answering the phones with the other.I would carry my TV back and forth everyday and trust me it wasn’t lite. At the beginning of the hearings there was no Republican support for impeaching vixen but as history now tells us by the end of the hearings take it. Maybe because make sense want a second term and there was no election could take him out of office.

I understand Justin Amash and his wish to have Trump impeached, if I could see this guy out of office tomorrow it would make me so happy. I would deal with a Mike Pence presidency or maybe not. One of those phrases that Trump uses on the media is enemy of the people. Honestly it’s the Republican party and Trump who are the enemy of the people. So even someone that he’s seemingly benign like Mike Pence trying to make himself look is actually deep down a radical bigot.

I think that the best way to Democrats can go is through impeachment inquiries but without actually losing in an impeachment fight. The inquiries will be chiseling away at Trump’s support and hopefully he’ll the weakend enough that by November 2020 he is defeated in a I landslide.

As far as Justin Amash is concerned, he can count on my donating to his re-election campaign. He’s not in my party but he’s the kind of leaders we need in our country.

Yale psychiatrist Bandy Lee: Trump’s mental health is now a “national and global emergency” – Salon

The old joke is “I’m not a doctor but I play one on TV”.

Honestly I think do any of us need to be doctors or psychiatrist to see how Disturbed the present occupant of the White House is? I think the 59% who disapprove of trump also understand that he’s mentally ill. Calling him a narcissist is too easy. It goes deeper than that let’s think about a few of the signs. He’s lies over 10,000 times in public since taking office. His weird obsession with his daughter. The way he treats everyone from his cabinet members to the White House staff.  He destroys relationships whether it’s with his wives or with anyone within his inner circle. This is the guy that has the nuclear codes.

In his interview with George Stephanopoulos he said that the world doesn’t work that way and he’s right the world should not work with a man like him as president of the United States. The Secretary of States is called him a moron. His Chief of Staff told people he was an idiot. And this is what we have as the man leading our country. this is a scary time for America and all those people on the America first bandwagon need to get a hold of themselves and see what they have put in the White House.

Car sales are at recession levels. And they are always the canary in the coal mine. Next we’re going to start seeing unemployment start goingng up but will it be in time for the country to get rid of this scourge, I hope so.

It’s courageous people in the medical establishment to come out and say the things that this doctor has said but it needs to be said. 

My friends who are Trump supporters brush all of these kind of things away because in essence they like the fact that has a very rich people he has lowered their taxes. At Whose expense? One of those friends I had a friend who needed help in Florida and he asked me if I could help. I told him no. He was surprised because he lives in California. I explained in Florida there is no income tax, sales taxes are lowbut as each to be said. It’s funny, my friends who are Trump supporters brush all of these kind of things away because and that sucks they like the fact that as a very rich people he has Lord there taxes. Had who’s expense? Want of those friends had a friend who needed help in Florida and he asked me if I could help. I told him no. He was surprised because he lives in California. I explained and floor. They’re is no tax on the state, sales taxes are low and where did you think the money was going to come from. He had no answer and that’s the problem with the Republican Party, they have no answers.

Nearly 140 Dogs Found Inside Mansion In Anaheim Hills, California

As an animal lover the fact that someone had 150 small animals living in a mansion when none of their neighbors in a gated community new that they even had a dog is frightful to me.

This is disgusting.

As a political junkie what I find most disturbing is the fact that these people, Edward and Jo Reitkopp were rabid Trump supporters. I’m not putting a correlation between the two but if you go to this person’s Facebook page you will see nothing but pictures of Trump.

The house was so filthy that people had to go in to get the animals in hazmat suits. the animals were covered in feces and urine, these people need to be put in jail for a long time and hopefully a jail that doesn’t let him go to the bathroom in a toilet just like what they did to their poor animals.

Let there be

The man who’s afraid of a fictitious cow wants to launch an investigation against the FBI and the Department of Justice – The Daily Beast

Once upon a time there was a congressman who ruled over the Central Valley of California. His immigrant parents from Portugal group a large dairy business and their son went to Congress. And that’s where the success depends. Sure he was able to climb the ranks of the Republican hierarchy in the house but his career is down the drain. now Adam Schiff is the chairman of the house intelligence committee and Adam Schiff made him look really bad today.

So Devin Nunes does what he does best and choose people. By the way this is the same guy that is sponsoring a bill to limit frivolous court cases. So is his first act he sued a fictitious account call Devin Nunes cow and also another fictitious account called Devin Nunes mom. by doing that he gave these two accounts platforms that they had never even hoped to have. Once again like Beavis and Butthead he took a pencil and stuck it right into his eye.

Poor little Devin Nunes wasn’t born of a lot of brains and is not going to have a great career. May he disappear with A whimper.

‘Fox & Friends’ host says Ocasio-Cortez’s staff salary plans ‘socialism and communism on display’ – TheHill

First let’s get some things out of the way. The dictionary definition of communism is:

a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed

How is paying someone a living wage in anyway communism? The Republicans need to start doing some deep soul-searching because their corporate overlords are now going to threaten their political survival. The middle class is disappearing and AOC is only saying that she’s going to pay her staffers $52,000 a year. And the Republicans think this is outrageous?

The Republican brand is becoming one of corporate cronyism and leaning towards fascism. How is that the party of Lincoln?

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld exploring primary challenge against Trump – POLITICO

Historically Presidents that are challenged is a primary do not fare well.

What you up to this news is making my day. If Trump has to defend against the Republican it means that you’ll have to the Bates the shaman and spend lots of money to make sure he gets the nomination.

Thank you Bill Weld, you are a true Patriot.

Grassley raises voice after McConnell interrupts Senate speech – TheHill

Me thinks not all is peachy on the Republican side of the Senate.

Chuck grassley is not one of my favorite people. Chuck Grassley understands what McConnell has just set off. This is much worse than what Chuck Schumer did when he change the rules in the senate for confirmations to a majority as opposed to a 60-vote needed. Chuck Grassley understands that there’s going to be a democratic presidents maybe in the near future. Chuck Grassley understands that this is a president that is going to be disastrous for the Republican Party. sure the Republicans cheat but when they do they open the door for others to do the same.

I look forward to a democratic Congress and President. But if there’s a Democratic president she can declare National emergencies for things that are actually National emergencies. Something like climate change or gun control.

This false emergency is a smoke screen to hide behind for the Trump Administration and all of the problems that is besieging them.

Democrat unseats Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in Orange County House district – LA Times

The witch is Dead!

Look, anyone who’s been here before knows I’m a Democrat and proud of it. But there are so so few Republicans that I despised more then Dana rohrabacher. His love of everything Russia and his corruption goes unchallenged by this GOP and by this president.

Well in January say goodbye representative Rohrabacher to your house seat and perhaps you may be able to get a job in Putin’s Russia.
