My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
There is a two prong approach to removing this person from our body politic. First she needs to drop out of the race and promise not to run as an independent or third-party candidate. This will be the acid test because she will refuse to do so.
The second prong is to have her voted out of Congress. To that end I have donated and I hope you will donate to her Challenger. Click on the link below:
Hillary Clinton is not one for hyperbole. She saw a problem and she pointed to it forcefully and said we need to get rid of it. Tulsi gabbard is being groomed to wrap our elections in 2020 by the Russian government and if anybody doesn’t believe that then somebody asked her why she refuses to renounce anything Russian. She’s not a patriot she’s a mole.
One more thing, a homophobe is always a homophobe.
Since we have a so-called billionaire currently occupying the White House I assume he’s going to pick up the bill for this wild goose chase. this is like the Benghazi thing. They pick up a bone is a bone that’s been eaten and chews on and is no longer viable but they keep chewing on it. We had seven, seven Benghazi investigations and they all came up with the same results. So now here we go looking for the as our President says “Oranges”of the investigation in Russia.
I don’t understand when someone accused of a crime publicly says it’s them why do we need to look any further? Putin gleefully in front of Trump said yes he had meddled in our elections in 2016 and he plans on doing it again in 2020. The ads from Russia on Facebook or paid for in rubles that’s the Russian currency.
I think we need an Inspector General investigation into William Barr. I think William Barr should be disbarred because he is not doing the work of the American people he’s doing the work of the current occupant of the White House. They are radicals and are dangerous and as far as close to fascist without having that moniker put on them.
The impeachment is coming and Trump knows it so he’s going to try to muddy the waters as much as possible but unfortunately for him this is clear as glass and it’s going to be a bad day for Trump when the impeachment in the house begins.
Is Trump the president of the United States or is he the pr guy for either Turkey or Russia you pick it.
Trump writes letters to world leaders like, teenagers passing notes to each other in junior high. You and your letter to a dictator by saying call me!
Rudy Giuliani is going down just like Michael Flynn did as an agent for turkey that is not registered in the United States. That’s already a given. but there are more people in this white house that have weird ties to Turkey. Which also brings us to a former Congressman named sessions whose father was a former FBI director. He’s in this mess as well just having been subpoenaed by a grand jury in a counterintelligence investigation. This White House seems to do the business of everyone except the American people. It’s ironic that they pushed the America first moniker for themselves when we are not first. We have left the Middle East to Putin’s own devices. We have hundreds if not thousands of Isis fighters that are looseand Trump says that he’s not worried about them they’re not the strong Isis fighters. Of course he claimed that he crushed ISis is in one month then how come there are Isis fighters still? Well that coupled with the weird letter he sent to the genocide leader of Turkey and this day could not get any weirder.
His meltdown with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is indicative of this man’s poor mental Health. Speaker Pelosi posted the picture that he ignorantly tweeted of her standing up to him. And her post she said all roads lead from you to rush out mr. President.
But I think the thing that must have gotten him the maddest was that on the steps of the White House after his meltdown she said that she was praying for the president which he does all the time but now she’s praying for his mental health because there’s something wrong there.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s friends talk about the fact that all of this would not even be a Bee movie script because it would be so improbable but yet here we are.
there’s an ancient proverb that’s actually a curse and the curse says “May you live in interesting times.” I think we are all cursed.
It’s been such a day but the cracks in the armor of trump are starting to become larger and larger. Lindsey Graham today said that obstruction of Congress is an impeachable offense. Sure he’s not going to vote for impeachment because he’s in the Senate and he’s not going to vote for conviction because he’s a Lindsey Graham. And now a Fox News host other than Shep Smith or Chris Wallace is putting the gauntlet down and telling Trump that he’s using talking points of our enemies. Here’s an interesting Fox News poll which I’m sure upset Trump to no end:
Trump is a coward and a bully. I worry that he’s not going to go into the night quietly like Richard Nixon. He may tear our country apart just to save his own skin but I hope like my good friend John truly believes that he’s going to resign. I used to think that it would be to save his children but now I think it’s to save his own skin.
The United States and especially the U.S. foreign policy is unrecognizable under Trump. We put tariffs on our allies and snuggle up to dictators that have always been our enemies. So what’s breaking news tonight that turkey is mounting an offensive against the Kurds with Russia. Yes the third-rate power that Russia has become is being propped up by Turkey. Russia really needs Syria because Russia has very few ports that they can put their Navy into. And the sacrificial lambs are our allies the Kurds.
it will take years to repair the damage that Trump has done to the United States and its Mission across the world. Look, I’ve never been a big fan of the u.s. being the policeman of the world but somebody had to do it, especially after the fall of the Soviet Union. But a complete capitulation to the Russian federation whose economy is 29th in the world, just to give you an example, if California were a stand-alone country it would have the 5th largest economy. Putin has used asymmetrical weapons against us. He is holding our president hostage because of the help that he gave Trump and getting himself the narrow electoral college win with 78,000 votes. Trump actually has a doctored electoral college map in the white house showing him winning more districts and he actually did. This is a cult of one and Trump will do anything to hold on to power and will do anything to the bidding of Putin.
There’s one more fly in the ointment of this story. The Kurdish forces have approximately 10 to 20,000 Isis prisoners in their midst. What happens when these people are glad loose? Do you really think their anger against us has disappeared while they’ve been prisoners?
Trump is throwing everyone under the bus but doing it to the Kurds amounts to genocide. If the Kurds looked like Norwegians Trump would not be doing this.
As he throws people under the bus from his own party in the end Trump’s Achilles heel will be the polls.
When the Watergate hearings started, Nixon had an approval rating of 47%. Within three months of the first hearing his approval ratings were down to 21% and that’s when the Republicans started jumping ship and he realized that he needed to resign or he would be kicked out of office.
The other thing I don’t understand is Trump claims that he is the great decider. So why did he let Rick Perry, someone he beat out in the primaries for the nomination, convince him to make the call to Ukraine. It makes no sense.
so now he’s thrown Pence under the bus, Rick Perry under the bus, called for Romney’s impeachment, I think that’s what one calls presidential harassment where the president is the one doing harassment.
The cracks are forming already and soon you will see Republicans jumping the ship that is quickly taking on water and sinking very much like the Titanic.
I think we’re going to hear a lot about John Mitchell. He was the attorney general for Richard Nixon and I think that William Barr is taking a lot of pages from Mitchell’s handbook. The problem with taking pages from his hand book is that it led John Mitchell directly to jail, then stop at go and did not have a get-out-of-jail card.
When the CIA Inspector General puts in the hands of the justice department a criminal referral and it’s put in somebody’s top drawer and locked that’s against the law. There needs to be an investigation, the justice department must at least look at it to see whether or not there are any valid reasons to pursue it. We know how this attorney general works and he works only for president Trump.
Maybe it’s my political bias but I remember Watergate a lot more than I remember President Clinton’s impeachment. Well, first well Watergate was going on I was in college and had time to follow it very closely whereas during the Clinton impeachment I had a full-time job and also ran one of the largest AIDS fundraisers in the country. My time was very much like my own. And perhaps that’s why I always refer back to Watergate has my template on how a president should not behave. That being said, what’s the current occupant of the White House is doing is outside anyone’s norms or or anyone’s experience with other presidents. Sure we’ve had corrupt presidents but this is corruption on a scale that has never been seen before. Our founding fathers, that the GOP seems so so in love with, had put in closet in our constitution specifically to make sure that foreign forces don’t have control over the president of the United States. They were worried that after the British lost in the Revolutionary War that the country would be divided into two parties, the English party and the French party. It didn’t work out like that. Our founding fathers did not want political parties but I think they should have thought a little bit more, it’s a human nature. It’s kind of like Lenin never considering that human greed would be the death of communism.
You know, this president has been yelling at the top of his lungs for the Democrats to grow a backbone. Well their backbone is fully formed and they are going after him and going for the jugular.
You’ve heard the term mostly about banks that they are too big to fail. Well I think that Facebook is just playing too big. Too much power in the hands of one company run by someone who has their own agenda. Mark Zuckerberg Al controls Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, what’s up and many more ways that people are interacting today.
So now he sets his ire on Elizabeth Warren. This makes me think that he was complicit in allowing all those millions and millions of ads running against Hillary Clinton in 2016 on his platforms. He claims he knew nothing about it but as I’ve said on this Scythe more than once when you accept money in Russian currency where did you think the money came from?
In a couple of days I will mark my second year off of Facebook. I am healthier for it, lost lots of weight while not sitting in front of a screen all the time. I am saying her for it because I’m not assailed by people on social media that seem to forget that people at the other end are actually human beings. I was 63 when I deleted Facebook so I was kind of aware of who who are my friends, but 1 Jets drawn into the idea that all these people that call you their friends are truly your friend oh, they’re not. But most importantly I made my point to Facebook that the only way we as consumers can make a point to Facebook is by deleting our accounts.
If you do a search at the bottom of my page for delete Facebook you’ll find the step by step instructions that are actually necessary to delete your Facebook account. They don’t make it easy for you and will tug at your heartstrings but it’s the only way you can tell them that how they’re running their company is unacceptable.
Trump and his cohorts have bought millions of dollars of advertising on Facebook because they know how effective it was in 2016. I hope that Facebook does not attack Elizabeth Warren or any of the other Democratic candidates for president.
One more point. have you noticed how Trump attacks Google and Twitter but seems to be hands-off on Facebook? Inquiring minds want to know why.
We should have voted in Tony Schwartz as our president in 2016. He actually wrote The art of the deal. The guy we have in office right now doesn’t know how to do a good deal if it hit him in the face. So when former Secretary of State tillerson says that Israel and especially the corrupt Prime Minister of Israel Netanyahu played Trump that is as unsurprising as anything one has heard in the last three years.
This is the most corrupt and inept president we’ve ever had in this country. He insists on running the country as if the 38% that voted for him are the only people who live here. He has stepped over every boundary that was set up by our founding fathers. They never ever thought that the American people would be so stupid as to elect a man like Trump. But we did.
On a similar subject that is big news right now it was really unsurprising that Trump did not deny making a phone call to a foreign leader and subsequently making up a promise that alarmed a whistleblower. He just said that he knew that people would be listening but never denied it. we watch him on television during his rallies and his brain, the brain of a stable genius, wanders more than anything I’ve ever seen can a human brain. He can’t stay on one subject for any length of time. it’s almost like there is a laser pointer and he’s a cat.
Do United States of America and its population has one remedy and that’s in 20/20. We have 400 days to pick someone to run against them and hope that the foreign powers that this man has cozied up to don’t interfere and how we elect our president. I am in no way confident of this outcome. He has made it clear that he would happily accept help for his re-election from Russia. his people are blackmailing Ukraine into trying to get information on potential Democratic rivals. The corruption of this man, the corruption in plain sight, is nauseating, depressing and disheartening.
On a side note, Tillerson and Exxon Mobil are responsible for this climate crisis. 10 billion birds have been in North America in The last 5 ears, our planet is crushing in on itself.
I am a firm believer in a non-dystopian future. Maybe that’s because I was raised on the likes of Star Trek. My parents always had a glass-half-full attitude about life and the future. I inherited that and for that I cannot be any more grateful to them. I say this because I am of the belief that sometime, and not too distant future, maybe 5 to 10 years from now, we will find out why Trump, and the Republican party fail under the grips of the Russians. On paper it makes absolutely no sense. Well Trump is a grifter so he’ll follow the money but the GOP? They have abandoned America first for this strange mish-mosh of fake nationalism coupled with oligarch threads running through them. Case in point they give a giant tax cut to the rich and leave the poor in our nation wanting for even more. Cutting back food stamps is there first step in cutting back on the deficit that they grew because of the tax cut to the rich. They will go after Medicare, medical or Medicaid depending on where you are and of course the Affordable Care act. Why does a party that is in theory voted in by people so anti people? I think the answer to that conundrum will come.
watching Trump divert billions of dollars from our military including construction at West Point, training AR military on use of advanced missile technology, Building bases throughout the world so that we can maintain a balance against Russia and China all seems to be the opposite of what the Republicans used to stand for and yet here we are.
I hope alarm bells are going off all over the country and ringing loudly in Washington. Our democracy is being attacked and the present administration is walking mean it. They understand that they’re cozying up to dictators means that dictators want Trump to stay in office. This is not a conspiracy theory at all, this is being done in plain sight by Trump. His love affair with Putin, Kim jong-un and even the leader of China Ximakes these people want him to remain in office. What better way to keep him in office but to rig the election.
I watched last night the Democratic chairman of the Federal election commission almost apoplectic almost be apoplectic regarding the fact that her fellow commissioners of the Republican persuasion refuse to look into anything that has to do with Russia and election interference. This is only inviting more interference by every single dictatorship that Trump has weirdly embraced. I think that if you see him getting close to start dealing with Iran it’s because he knows Iran has the ability to rig our elections as well and he doesn’t want any of the players who will attack our democracy in 2020 not be on his side. There should be no his side there should only be the site of America, the United States of America.
There should be no his side there should only be the site of America, the United States of America.
If this is #MAGA2020 I want nothing to do with it.
