Rob Goldstone wishes he’d never set up that Trump Tower meeting with the Russians – NBC News

Here’s a hypothetical. An acquaintance calls you and tells you that he has information on how to rob a bank. What do you say? Yeah, that’s great just as long as there’s lots of money or it’s illegal. That was the choice that the Trump campaign had but as we know from the infamous email Donald Trump jr. said “I love it, if it has dirt on Hillary Clinton”.

I have heard all the excuses made by supporters of trump. They say that the campaign was not a polished organization. It was filled with political operatives. If a Russian calls and tell someone that they want to give information red flags should start flying in front of your eyes. It seems that Donald Trump jr. Did not understand or just is a crook but in any case ignorance of the law does not excuse you.

Rob Goldstone, the British music publicist who helped set up the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Russians and members of the Trump campaign team, says he wishes he’d listened to “the little voice in his head” that told him it was a bad idea.

Jerry Brown says that Trump will fund his National Guard mission — without immigration duties – NBC News

When 45 came swooping down to California on his only visits as president he had one main goal, raise money. Sure he went and looked at swatches of what the wall is never going to look like. Let’s face it if there were going to be a wall built it would have been funded by now.

As the state of California is being strangled out of funds by the federal government in an operation that the GOP calls ABC, or anybody but California. So if Trump wants 2 give us some National Guards to do work paid for by the federal government then sure.

And yes there is a revolution going on in California. We are leading the nation on how to coexist with each other. Sure there are some isolated incidents that make National media coverage but in the whole this state runs very well and people are happy.

Behind the chaos: Office that vets { THE BEST PEOPLE} Trump appointees plagued by inexperience – The Washington Post

Trump supporters, and by inference the American people, were promised the best people.

Instead we got a clown car full of the most inept individuals ever to work in a White House. The true Republicans that we see now on MSNBC criticizing this White House are right. Those Republicans who stay quiet or support the machination of this White House are traitors. Some may say the traitors is a harsh word for partisanship but we are watching the dismantling of the US government and it seems that it’s being guided from the Kremlin. All the policies of this Administration has helped the Kremlin. The trade Wars, the appointments, and the continuous fear of War looming on our country is exactly what the Kremlin wants.

Russia has the 29th largest economy in the world. Just to put this into perspective California has the fifth largest. Russia’s military is basically gone other than four people. Their Navy and Airforce is no longer what we think of as the Soviet Union’s powerful Strike Force. Russia can only real Power by having influence over the president of United States in a way that is sickening.

So that’s when we see the office that vets future candidates is filled with 24 year old campaign operatives and volunteers and is fraction of the size from any other White House we understand why we see this clown car happening everyday. From the Secretary of the Interior writing into his office on a horse on the first day to his $116,000 set of 3 Doors. Or the Secretary of Hud ordering a $31,000 dining set, seemingly doesn’t know about Ikea. Or the one that hits me the most is the head of the EPA having a soundproof booth in his office, does he think he is Get Smart? Why does the EPA need to have a soundproof booth?

We did not get the best people instead we got the swamp on steroids.

EPA poised to scrap fuel economy targets that are key to curbing global warming — setting up clash with California – LA TIMES

Under Scott Pruitt, EPA should be renamed to the Environmental Destruction Agency.

I remember a time when the Republican Party thought that states rights overrule the federal government’s. I remember during the Obama Administration when President Obama was signed executive orders because the Republican Congress would not pass legislation he was attacked for over reach. This president and this EPA administrator have a special place in hell. They don’t care about our children because the NRA tells him not to care and they don’t care about the air and water we breathe and drink because corporations don’t want to have regulations imposed upon them so they can poisonous to save a penny.

The American car companies are short-sighted. If they don’t build fuel efficient cars there will be no American car companies. The rest of the world is not sitting and waiting to see what do United States is doing and they are in the Forefront of producing the most fuel efficient cars available.

Everyday I have to see cornerstones of what makes America great being dismantled by this violin ministration. This is becoming untenable.

California wolf fights and we’ll fight hard because we are people of conviction hands we will not let the federal government destroyed our state.

Robert Mueller May Have Found That Witch That Trump Claims He’s Hunting For – Huffington Post

Our president must have listened to a lot of fairy tales when he was a little kid because he keeps screaming Witch Hunt. Each time he yells no collusion 3 times I think he thinks the witch is going to go away. The witch is him and he needs to look at the mirror and see that he has done it reprobate harm to our country and to the fabric of our nation. His moral values are trickling down to corporations, organizations and even universities. It’s on Hannibal to have a man so corrupt in the Oval Office.

In the picture he looks the happiest he’s ever been because he’s meeting his boss and is trying to make a good impression

Robert Mueller May Have Found That Witch That Trump Claims He’s Hunting For

This is the portrait of Donald Trump that his charity bought for $20,000 – The Washington Post

I hope that NBC likes the portrait since they paid for it. It came out of the Trump foundations covers which have not been replenished by Trump’s own money since 2008. It seems that in order to make Donald Trump look better on his show The Apprentice and BC gave his foundation and half a million dollars so that he could look generous when he fired people. Hand I guess he thought that a giant portrait of himself would not be too much and that’s where Donald Trump is different from everybody else.

Trump Foundation lacks the certification required for Charities that solicit money – The Washington Post 

Just one more Scandal to pile up on top of all the other scandals that Trump seems to have in his feed them. They are so many that it becomes a steady drip drip drip that people stop paying attention to them. Hillary has two so-called scandals. We have never heard the end of those too. But Rob never stops and the media reports on them for a few hours and then moves on to the next scandal.

I Wrote That I Despised Hillary Clinton. Today, I Want To Publicly Take It Back – Huffington Post

The problem with today’s media is that it is very superficial. So it’s easy to fall into the Trap of hearing just what the media says. Let’s face it even if you believe, and I do not, that there are Clinton scandals there are just two. The so-called email Scandal and so-called Benghazi scandal. Both of which have been completely investigated by Republicans and secretary Clinton has been found blameless. Now let’s look at the other side Trump has so many scandals that they are no longer speaking to him. We’ve become almost immune to his scandals. The Washington Post says that he lies every three and a half minutes in one of his speeches. Last night Seth Meyers says that’s how he times his popcorn in the microwave. This Irvington Post opinion piece is from someone who was a Bernie bro. He drank the Kool-Aid and believed that Hillary was evil. He looked at all of the information and looked at her record and now is apologizing.

It’s been said but not enough that Hillary Clinton is the most qualified person ever to run for president. If you took away the woman bias she would be winning by a landslide.

Paul Ryan suggests, but does not demand, that Trump make his tax returns public – The Washington Post

I would be great if the Republican leadership in congress actually were leaders. That is not the case. All they’re worried about is getting reelected and how much money they can collect from special interests. Case in point Paul Ryan the Speaker of the House. He says that he released his taxes and he thinks that we should release our taxes whatever that means but never comes out and says that Donald Trump should release his taxes. Paul Ryan says that he’s leaving it up to Donald Trump as the mold Trump says he’s in an audit. There is absolutely no evidence that Donald Trump is under an audit. If you were really under an audit all you need to do is show us the letter that says Dear Donald Trump you are being audited by IRS. But he doesn’t have that letter. He does not want us to see how he runs his business is like a criminal Empire and how little if anything he gives to charity. He gave to his foundation a donation in 2008. The Washington Post looked for donations from Donald Trump to 328 Charities that he claimed he was supporting and the Washington Post could only find one donation for $10,000 and that one was in 2009. 

Donald Trump needs to release his taxes.

Trump rescued from stalled elevator, it’s what he does afterwards that’s flabbergasting – CNN 

There’s one thing you can say about Trump and that’s he is an ungrateful sob. After being rescued by the Denver Fire Department the first thing he said when he got up on stage was too blessed the fire marshal for not allowing enough people into his rally. Fire Marshals have to abide by rules something that Trump doesn’t seem to know how to. I put together events as large as the ones that he has and the fire marshal is god at your event. But to slap the fire department in the face after they rescued you from an elevator is how Trump is going to be as a leader. Ungrateful.
