FBI studies two broken cameras outside cell where Epstein died: source – Reuters

I really don’t have much to say on this subject. I do know one thing that if there was any mischief in Epstein’s death who would be more likely to have access to him in a federal jail? a president who has not been in office for almost 20 years or the current president that also has his own private Attorney General? Inquiring minds want to know. I am happy to see that the FBI is going to look into these cameras, it seems very strange to me that the two cameras looking down on Jeffrey Epstein were both broken at the time of his death. Did no one understand they had a high-value prisoner in Epstein? He had already tried to commit suicide allegedly two weeks before and it makes absolutely no sense that he was not better looked after. It’s a terrible jail with terrible terrible conditions including no air conditioning or heat but still we need to make sure that our prisoners are safe. 2 million US citizens are in prison right now and that’s just a ridiculous number.

Jeffrey Epstein was allegedly a very bad man. I hope those who survived him and had something to do with what has been alleged to these poor young women will find their date in front of a court, this is a very sad situation that only gets sadder by the day.

Trump disavows ‘send her back’ rally chant, many Republicans alarmed – Reuters

When the late John McCain was running against President Obama a woman in the audience asked him if President Obama was a Muslim and whether or not he had not been born in this country, John McCain rightfully said no ma’am he is not a Muslim he is a good Christian I don’t agree with all of his use but he’s a good man.

last night Trump lead the cheers of send her back. He started it in a tweet saying to send back people who are born in this country and are naturalized citizens. so his trying to disavow what happened last night is very much what a dictator would do or a character in 1984. Don’t believe your lying eyes is what they’re telling us.

My favorite was when Mitch McConnell was asked about his wife and he ignored the questionof how he would feel if someone would tell his wife to go back to Taiwan as she is also a naturalized citizen. He completely went the other way and said basically her Wikipedia page.

Republicans lie for a living. It’s the only way they win it’s by cheating. They turned John Kerry from a war hero to the Swift boat person that everybody now thinks of. They tried hard 2 bring down President Obama but they could not. Unfortunately the lies they told about Hillary Clinton stuck. it’s funny how the Clinton foundation did good and there is never been a single whisper that money went into other people’s pockets. On the other hand Eric Trump is being charged with stealing money from a non-profit cancer organization!


Believe your eyes and believe your ears and don’t let this avalanche of misinformation distract you, our democracy depends on it.

US Chamber of Commerce criticizes Trump on his attack on American businesses – Reuters

Wendy us Chamber of Commerce attacks are Republican President you know things are going off the rails in the White House.

I can understand why the White House last week had a press conference but redefined press conference has all it was was a ramble from Trump and no questions from the Press. When questions from the Press are asked of this President he lies, there’s no other way to describe it. Yesterday was and barrage of Lies. I love the one where he said he was the toughest presidents on Russia and said that everyone else agreed about it and said look at them nodding yes. No one in the room was nodding yes. It is so embarrassing to watch this man deface the Office of the President United States.

The reason for the statement from the US Chamber of Commerce his of course Amazon and Jeff Bezos. Jeff Bezos owns Amazon and Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post but they are not related. The Washington Post has said that Jeff Bezos does not have input on editorial content. Further the post office said that day find the business relationship they have with Amazon to be lucrative and not a money-losing proposition as the president miss stated in his press conference. Enough of these lies, they don’t stop. The Washington Post fact-checker said that he lies about 7 times a day. If President Obama had lied 7 times in a year the Republicans would have been calling for impeachment. This kind of behavior is not what we expect from the White House

Spurned by top lawyers, Trump’s defense elevates Washington, outsider a medieval historian to defend him – Reuters

This is stunning:
(Reuters) – A little-known former prosecutor with a doctorate in medieval history will play a central role on U.S. President Donald Trump’s legal team, as many top-tier lawyers shy away from representing him in a probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

Although sometimes I feel like I’m living in medieval times under this regime getting a scholar who is proficient in it does not seem like a very good defense strategy for the president of the United States of America. And yet here it is, the soap opera or rather the reality show that is our government today continues. If I told you yesterday that a medieval scholar would be in charge of helping the president of the United States in his attempt to keep his office you would laugh at me. And here we are.

No top-tier attorney was willing to take on this President. Why should have talked to your attorney even a republican one want to? This man has proven that he lies, will perjure himself and has absolutely no way of controlling his mouth or his Twitter account for that matter. He mocks being presidential as if it’s some sort of bad thing. It’s what has gotten us through almost 250 years and I can’t wait till we get back to a presidential President, and that’s a president with a capital P unlike the one we have now.

Clinton leads Trump by 6 points after Democratic confab: Reuters/Ipsos poll – Reuters

Traditionally polls after the conventions are a good indicator of who’s going to win the election in November. This year the conventions were very very early. Both parties decided to have their conventions before the Olympics. So there is a Long Trail between now and November 8. The next hundred and two days will be critical to beating Trump and making sure that Hillary is our next president.



Trump vows to undo Obama’s climate agenda in appeal to oil sector – Reuters

If you could take all of the issues that I am 4 and find a candidate who is diametrically opposed to them then Donald Trump would be that abomination. Of course he’s all about making money and who cares who gets hurt even our planet. Even people who are in the energy business realize that it’s time for us to start looking at how to mitigate what we are doing to our planet. And yet this idiot who is running for president thinks that he wants to roll back all the good that President Obama has done over the last 8 years. It was not that long ago that Donald Trump said we needed to do something about climate change but now this self-serving as seems to want to kowtow to whatever special interest he can get money from. There goes the self funding of his campaign I guess.
That alone should be reason enough to want him defeated. But I have so many more reason for him to be defeated that Pikewood half used up my blogs allotment of storage to tell you about them.


Trump sued in Kentucky by three who say he incited crowd to violence | Reuters

I don’t believe I have ever heard of a more righteous reason to sue somebody then what this group of people are undertaking. It’s without a shadow of a doubt that Donald Trump was inciting the violence at his event. My God he said in the old days those people would be taken out on a stretcher. He said hit him. And his violent and unreasonable followers did exactly what he said. Maybe I’ll have to spend a little bit more of his so-called billion dollars to settle this. Oh wait he never settles anything or so he claims.
