Judge Napolitano: Barr’s ‘Foolish Attempt’ to Sanitize Mueller Report Was ‘Dumb and Insulting’ – The Daily Beast

You hear the word Patriot and you think of something old-fashioned. Or some people think of football, but I think about country over party. When I was a kid and I was against what the Democratic president was doing in Vietnam I protested. I have basically voted straight democratic but I have eyes and ears and if my party was doing the things that the Republican party is doing right now I would jump ship.

So we see people like George Conway and judge Napolitano spit starting to speak out.Republican senator Richard Burr sent out a full subpoena to Don Jr because the Mueller report says that Don Jr refuse to answer questions but that there were questions in their minds as to whether or not he had lied to Congress. He lied to Congress the Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. These little cracks in the Fox network will start making larger and larger fissures because this is not sustainable. watching a president dismantle our country, put the worst people into positions and attack his opponent is not America it’s the dictatorship that Trump wants to create.

Romney ‘sickened’ by Trump’s behavior in Mueller report – The Hill

What some people will do for just a little bit of attention. Let’s not forget this is the same Romney who went begging for the job of Secretary of State and was made to look like a fool by the current occupant of the White House.

you could tell him this picture that Trump was going to screw with Romney. You would think that Romney would become a thorn in Trump’s side. Sure he makes these kind of statements that he is shocked at his actions but he vote with Trump even when it means voting to lift sanctions against Russian oligarchs.

Romney is no Patriot he is an opportunist.

A true patriot would say that he would go along with the articles of impeachment that are so so needed against this criminal president.

White House and Justice Dept. Officials Discussed Mueller Report Before Release – New York Times

Yes, I am a partisan Democrat and very proud of that. When my dad came to this country he saw which side was good and talk me the same.

Republicans win because they cheat. Democrats lose because they’re good at it.

I have watched a litany of amazing people who ran for president and did not win because Republicans cheat

Let’s start with Nixon, Hubert Humphrey was the vice president under Lyndon Baines Johnson and would have been a wonderful president of the United States but Nixon had to cheat it’s called Watergate.

George McGovern who ran in 1972 and who received my first vote in a presidential election. He ran against Nixon cheats.

After the Fall From Grace that Nixon suffered Gerald Ford immediately pardon him when he became president. A move I’m sure that Mike Pence would emulate in a second if he got to be president. Jimmy Carter 1 in 1976 when the United States needed a change from all of this cheating.

But never fear Ronald Reagan came to the scene and went and negotiated behind Jimmy Carter’s back to release the Iranian hostages. he made Jimmy Carter look weak and one of the best presidents we ever had lost in his re-election bid. You all know Jimmy Carter has one of the most amazing ex-presidents who even had his current age is building homes for the needy.

Al Gore won the election against George W Bush, but the Republicans cheat and because of the mess that the State of Florida is we got the wrong man to be president and we got to Wars that we still are in because of that. Think about what an Al Gore presidency would have done for our planet, instead of making videos he would have been able to actually make policy that would have reversed climate change in time for all of what’s happening right now not to have happened.

In 2004 John Kerry a military hero was Swift boated by the cheating Republicans and made to look like a deserter. This is coming from a president who had never done anything except to avoid military service. George W Bush came from a family of military service but he had nothing to do with it.

They try to cheat against President Obama but he was good and he had moderately honorable opponents.

Which takes us to present day and the cheater in Chief who currently occupies the White House. He colluded with Russians, wikileak, and anyone else he could get to cheat himself into the White House.

so it’s not surprising that tomorrow when the Mueller report comes out they would have already cheated. They are going to try to eclipse the Mueller Report with news coverage of their own but the American people are smarter than that and I think they’re going to see through it.

Always remember Republicans win because they cheat.

Attorney General William Barr should be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life because he can look at history books and see. Attorney General Mitchell went to jail for what he did for Nixon during Watergate. May William Barr suffer the same fate.

WATERGATE’S JOHN DEAN MOCKS DONALD TRUMP OVER MUELLER REPORT: ‘WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU READ 400 PAGES PLUS OF ANYTHING’ – Newsweek

Although Michael Cohen has never had a job in the white house because of the weird nature of trumps businesses he is as close to John Dean of Watergate as we can come to today.

John Dean is absolutely correct in his assessment of the current occupant of the White House’s ability to read books or anything for that matter. He seems to have a problem with even a teleprompter. So to think that he would read 400 pages of what must be for the most part of very dry document, I don’t think so.

Trump now claims that he could read the report anytime he wanted to because he’s President. That may be true but it’s 400 pages!honestly I think the four pages of Pulp fiction that attorney general Barr put out 3 weeks ago is even too long for this President. He would need the cliff notes of the bar four-page memo and even at that I don’t think he’d have the attention span to read it all.

It’s amazing now that Barr has told him what is in the report, Trump no longer thinks we should see it. I think that may be a bit suspicious and I’m not alone. He didn’t get a single bump up in the polls after his fake Victory lap that he did prior to us finding out more about the Mueller report. I don’t know when it will come out but it will come out before the election. Trump thinks he has an ace in the Supreme Court. He did not appoint chief justice Roberts who does not want to make the Supreme Court a political tool of the executive branch. So I think that chief justice Roberts is going to do the right thing. If he votes with the for liberals then we will see the report and I truly believe that Congress is going to expedite this all the way up to the Supreme Court as quickly as possible. It’s important for the American people to find out everything there is to know about the shenanigans during the 2016 election so they can make an informed decision in 2020.

Trump’s impeachment doesn’t have to wait. The Founding Fathers never wanted it to be an insurmountable hurdle – George Conway via NBC Think

I am of two minds about impeachment.

I can see George Conway’s point and yes Donald J Trump has done more than commit high crimes and misdemeanors while in office and deserve to be removed from his role as president of the United States.

I can see Nancy pelosi’s point of view here also. We are only 598 days away from the election. Even if we were to start impeachment proceedings immediately, which as we all know Congress doesn’t work that way, it would be starting very close to the actual campaign and election. And what better argument to Rally his supporters is that the orange nightmare going on TV and saying that he’s being persecuted.

We are at a quandary here. I still believe that what I have liked to call impeachment light which will be a series of high profile testimonies in front of congress with the public looking on. The ratings for the Michael Cohen testimonies should tell you something about how the American people will be glued to their various forms of media.

Hell yes he should be impeached but I think our best move is to get him out of office through the electoral process and then making sure that he is prosecuted for all of the things that he has done including getting in bed with the enemy.

Sanders Institute shutting down amid criticism – TheHill

First I want to make sure that we understand here that the Clinton foundation was a philanthropic organization that did gobs of Wonder across the world. Curing malaria, looking for an end to the AIDS epidemic, Ebola, hunger and the list goes on and on. On the other hand a think tank, like the one Sanders and his family ran, is what I call a place for mental masturbation.

So please no false equivalencies between what Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump have as foundations and what the clintons created for good.

Let’s get the scorecard ready:

Releases their tax returns

Trump no

Sanders no

Don’t pay their campaign staff equally with gender bias

Trump yes

Sanders yes

Events have almost no African American or people of color In their audience

Trump yes

Sanders yes

Have a penchant and love for Russia and everything Russian

Trump yes

Sanders yes

So let me get this straight, we’ve already made the mistake once with Trump are we really willing to make the same mistake again with Sanders?

Trump Slams Russia Investigation And Green New Deal At CPAC – NPR

If it wasn’t CPAC I would think they were all on drugs, on second thought maybe they are.

Between railing about the green New deal and how they’re going to take away our cheeseburgers, SUVs and for God’s sakes airplanes they had a clown come to the show.

Unfortunately the clown is the President of the United States.

They are so outside of the mainstream of American thought that it has become akin to going to a NRA convention. both organizations are outside of the mainstream of American soft, both organizations have people desperately clinging onto power for power’s sake and both organizations should be dismantled.

and there are people out there that are buying this Hook Line & sinker. I’ve got to put in a little word hear about Joe Biden’s comment that Mike Pence is a decent guy. to me it is indicative of the fact that Joe Biden should not be the nominee of the democratic party. Mike Pence is not a decent guy, Mike Pence hates the lgbtqi community and Mike Pence was in charge of the transition. You can tell me that the governor of Indiana comes to Washington and sees all these Russians running around and doesn’t ask a single question. It’s not believable and therefore it can’t be true.

Bernie Sanders 2016: Can He Win the Love of a Party He Scorns? – POLITICO Magazine

It’s funny, how a man who decries is hatred for hypocrisy seems to be a hypocrite.

At this point it seems that Bernie Sanders would be better off running as a Republican. He says he wants to change a party from within well why don’t we go after the party that needs the most changing, the GOP. Let’s face it, the GOP has become morally bankrupt. But why would I say that he is aligned with them?

He was favored by Putin over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic primaries.

He was absent for the key vote in the Senate that allowed for lifting of the sanctions against Russia and its oligarchs.

His love of Russia seems to go back all the way to 1979 when it really was not okay to spend your honeymoon there.

He says that his taxes are in TurboTax and that his wife can’t get to them.

Does any of this sound familiar?

do some good Senator Sanders and run as a republican against Donald Trump. There’s somebody that you can defeat and make a legacy for yourself.

And by the way the article that’s in the link below is from 2016!

Los Angeles Passes Law for New Businesses to Disclose Any Ties to NRA – Newsweek

I truly believe that living in Los Angeles is a privilege. When I moved here almost 20 years ago I was told that the city would eat me up. Instead the city has embraced me. Living in the city where people have the same mindset as you, for the most part, it’s magical.

So once again I’m so proud of our great City for standing up to the NRA. The NRA has become not only a purveyor of death and violence in our country but also a conduit of dirty money from foreign countries including Russia.

Can someone please explain to me why the NRA would be doing events in Russia. Russia does not allow gun ownership it never made sense.

Business in Los Angeles is also a privilege and if these companies wish to continue doing business here they need to start fussing up to how and why they are tied to the NRA.

Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats Dispute Claims That Russia Probe Found No Collusion – Mother Jones

it’s rather spectacular how do the GOP hierarchy has jumped on this no collusion bandwagon. I just saw the chairwoman of the RNC say that Trump has been exonerated! I laughed hard and then I blocked her.

Let’s make a few things clear here. First of all the Senate intelligence committee is a fact-gathering they do not have the power to put anyone in jail or even say that someone should be put in jail. Also unlike the Mueller investigation they cannot compel the testimony of people like with Gates who have the proverbial sword hanging over his head regarding how long he’ll go to jail if he doesn’t cooperate. They don’t have access to all of the information that Robert Mueller has but that’s not their job.

You know who else has attached in front of them, the prosecutors of the southern district of New York, the attorney General of New York, prosecutors from the Washington DC Office of the attorney General. Yes there are a lot more people looking into this then we know about.

Trump is in huge trouble and he knows it.
