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.
I just got an email from Elizabeth Warren and its subject line was my plan to repair the state department. If that doesn’t scare you then you don’t know very much about how foreign policy works. foggy bottom as the state department is referred to as one of the most important departments in our government. it’s our conduit to the rest of the world. Trump and Bannon have made it their mission to destroy the state department. I’m sure under orders from Putin.
Putin would love us to leave NATO, that has been his goal since he became president of the Russian federation. And Trump seems to be all in on that idea. We have allies that we have nurtured through the years that are being ignored. our biggest trading partners Canada and Mexico are not happy with us. The UK and France are in the same boat. I cannot think of any world leader other than the ones that are to the far right or dictators that are happy with this President.
This president hates to be mocked and yet he makes it so easy to mock him. If you went to class when you are in school unprepared for an oral exam or presentation you are laughed at. he does this on a daily basis when he meets with foreign leaders. He’s unprepared and ill-advised. Yesterday I saw that he wants to put a conspiracy theorist in the job as thedirector of national intelligence to replace Dan Coats.we need this man out of office as soon as possible. Yes I would love to see him impeached and I understand why people say we need to impeach him but I know that that would just make his people more vehement to have them re-elected. I am so torn on this subject of impeachment because it is the way that we need to use to get rid of bad presidents or other office holders. Unfortunately it’s taking too long and we are too close to an election to have him impeached. Let’s let the American people, if they still have a say, get him out of office.
This is such a hard one. If you listen to Bill Maher he’ll tell you that doing this kind of thing is not only a form of censorship but it elevates those people we dislike even more by giving them more attention. If you look at it from Jim Carrey or Judd Apatow’s one of you they don’t want to be on stage with a hate monger. So what does one do? I guess that’s the question for the ages. I am not comfortable with either scenario and I wish our politics were not so divisive but they are. And the man who is one of the architects of this divisiveness is Steve Bannon and so I say give him more to say about the liberal or the left to his core supporters which are not going to change and keep him up stages as much as we possibly can.
Steve Bannon looks very old for someone who obviously was in the Hitler Youth movements.
The problem with France for Steve Bannon and his ilk is that they have a 7-year term for their presidents. So we’re looking at my whole until 2024. I guess they’re hoping to make inroads but getting up in front of a group of people and telling them that it’s okay to be racist it’s not a message that I would be proud of. He’s just telling them it’s okay not to like people because they don’t look like you. And by the way I am reciting exactly what Michael Steele former Republican party chairman said on Kasir DC just now. By the way for those who are not students of History this is exactly how Hitler came to power and how he brought in Mussolini and the Japanese to make the axis against Europe and then the United States. Russia wants this to happen. Russia wants a divided Europe. Russia once America divided. And Russia’s lap dog is doing exactly what Russia wants in the White House.
To quote Melania Trump, there’s a special place in hell for people like Steve Bannon. And when he says history is on his side he is talking about Hitler and don’t you forget it.
As quickly as Chris Matthews on Hardball disappointed today, Rachel Maddow came back to the rescue. In a hard-hitting piece that started off with the speech writer that wrote the speech by the mother of the gentleman who was killed in Benghazi accusing Hillary Clinton of causing her son’s death who is now voting for Hillary Clinton. Then came her invitation to the scary blonde haired individual who is now Donald Trump’s campaign manager to come on the show at any time. To her saying that Hillary Clinton has been on her show 4 times this election season but Donald Trump has been on it a few times. Asking Donald Trump to come and make an appearance on the show. To the interview with the author of The Crystal Ball another one of the web sites that predict the outcome of the election. And then there was the skating commentary on Donald Trump’s new campaign CEO the founder of breitbart.com and his racist and hateful rhetoric. This was the punch counter-punch to Chris Matthews being a wimp on his show. Congratulations to Rachel Maddow and I hope you will click on the link below and watch the clip it’s well worth it.
