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.

Ann Coulter: Trump Is ‘Lazy and Incompetent’ – The Daily beast

If you read the whole interview you’ll see that she is as delusional as he is. She claims he can use his power as commander-in-chief to direct the military to build a wall. Nope, that’s not going to happen. The military would need to have funds given to it by Congress for this task. does she really believe that the military has money sitting around not being used for the troops and all of the defense department toys that they love so much. The defense department would never ever take money away from an aircraft carrier or a jet fighter to build a wall along the southern border that is not necessary.

I wasn’t sure if Trump’s would see her interviews so I made sure he could read the headline, I translated into Russian for him.

Russia attacks and seizes three Ukrainian naval vessels off the coast of Crimea in Black Sea – NBC News

I guess Putin is testing to see whether or not he got his money’s worth in the election of Donald Trump. Let’s see how quickly Donald Trump responds to this or says that this is an internal matter and not one that has anything to do with the American people. That is full BS. It is the policy of the United States to try to keep the Nations that split off from the Soviet Union free and independent. It is the policy of Donald Trump’s boss, Putin, to bring as many into his fold again as possible. Russia is a dying country with very few resources. The resource they had been banking on is the resource that has become the least needed, oil. I found it ironic when the Tangerine nightmare in the White House said that the price of oil has gone down because of him, I’m sure this is not making his overlord happy. you remember those Winter Olympics, Putin borrow the money for those Winter Olympics with the understanding that oil would stay at $125 a barrel or more, and that’s not what’s happening.

So now Trump is being tested.

Was he worth the investment by Putin for putting him in the White House?

Can’t wait to watch the Republicans try to ignore the fact that Putin is trying to bring back the Soviet Union.

Trump tore up our nuclear arms agreement with Russia. What else is this unhinged man going to do?

I fear that Trump will go along with whatever Russia wants because as his biggest supporter, hannity says, they have the pee tape.

After NRA Mocks Doctors, Physicians Reply: ‘This Is Our Lane’ – NPR

I’ll be honest, I have been overloaded with political stuff on television. So I buried myself into British shows on Netflix. The ones I watch have a common theme there are murders and they are solved at the end of the show. You never see the gruesome act just the end result. The shows I’ve been watching our murders in paradise and midsomer murders. I say all this because one thing that has struck me after watching it seems no one has handguns the UK. Even the police. It’s fun watching police chase after people because they can’t shoot at them. How refreshing.

Now to the NRA, the reason for this post. The NRA has done everything in his power to make sure that every American has access to multiple guns. They don’t care how many bullet holes it’s hairs into people’s bodies, the bottom line comes first. The NRA is no longer group of people who are hunters and sportsman. They become a political branch of the GOP. I think. Russia what country was no guns, why would the NRA be there? Do you really think that Putin wants guns and every household? No.

Who have told you that already that they are a cause for the bloodshed in this country. Doctors need to repair the wounds caused by these terrible weapons. Honestly the shootings that we’ve seen of late had been done with weapons of mass destruction.

NRA I don’t suggest you attack doctors, they do have the Hippocratic oath but…

The true terrorists are the NRA.

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.
