My meanderings about politics, LGBTQI 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’ve been communicating with one of my best friends today telling him that it’s becoming someone disheartening to see this President and his actions. He’s out there in the open, figuratively shooting someone on 5th Avenue.
What is more upsetting to me take the fact of the Republican Party anyway it’s leaders, say they’re okay with it. I keep thinking of this scenario. Let’s say, Norway, comes up to Joe Biden and says “Hey we’ve got information on Donald Trump, want it? All things being equal other than having a body buried somewhere in the White House this President seems to be immune from bad information about him. But in the future, hopefully we’ll have another president whose last name is not Trump, I wonder how the Republicans defending this President and his words yesterday would feel?
I’ve been a lifelong Democrat but there has been Republicans that I have admired. But when Mitch McConnell if his swarthy face says that if one of theSupreme Court justices passes away next year would he replaced at Justice unlike what he did was Merrick Garland, he says yes. So as far as I’m concerned the Republican party or the party of trump is morally bankrupt and yes we need a conservative voice but one that respect the laws of our country and are not blatant hypocrites.
Until I am proven wrong, I feel very pessimistic about the future of our country and especially the democracy our forefathers envisioned us for us. I pray to the universe that I am wrong
This is what an organization and its death throws looks like. The NRA is money while they are losing membership. they went from gun safety organization in the 60s to a right-wing Russian loving organization in the Trump era.
Oliver North is well known to those who remember the Iran-Contra affair. He lied to Congress and he’s not somebody that I have any respect for other than the fact he served our country in the military.
The day I hear the NRA is snuffed out of existence will be a very happy day not only for the United Statesbut for the rest of the world as we are the arms merchants to the world and that’s very much thanks to the NRA. I’ve been watching a lot of shows based out of Australia and their one take away is that whenever they find illegal guns guess where they come from? The United States. Is that truly who we want to be?
I have yelled at the TV more times than I’d like to think about when Allen West was on spewing his form of conservatism. The NRA must truly be in trouble if this guy comes out and says that both Wayne LaPierre and the new president who replaced Oliver North are lying about access that the board has to financial information. Financial information like the $200,000 in suits that Wayne LaPierre has purchased on the NRA account. What is it with all of these Republicans buying expensive suits, remember Paul Manafort’s?
The NRA started as a gun safety organization and now it’s a purveyor of violence across the country. They claim the second amendment is there right to unlimited arms and yet they seem to forget the first words of the 2nd amendment which say “A well regulated Militia” and yet they negate the word regulated and go for all-out armament of themselves. It’s absurd and it’s even more absurd that courts have upheld this. Look at Australia which had a mass murder in 1998 and also had a strong gun ownership history. They banned guns bought them back and there has been complete drop in gun violence unprecedented in our times. Look at how fast New Zealand acted upon the same issue. It’s funny I’m watching the show called Janet King which is an Australian show that reminds me of Law & order. And season 2 there have been 19 murders over the course of 15 months by gun violence and they have set up a commission to figure out how to stop gun crime. 19 murders! That’s not even an hour in the United States. And by the way the guns were all imported to Australia from the US, any surprises there? It’s making us a hated country.
The United States of America is the number one gun exporter in the world and that’s the legal ones.
When is enough is enough? Sandy Hook, Parkland, Pulse Nightclub, all church, synagogue and mosque shootings or those on army bases? We have become numb to this violence just like we have become numb to the hatred spewing out of this white house and it’s time for a change before we lose our America forever.
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.
Slowly but surely cracks are appearing in the coverage of the current occupant of the White House on Fox news. Fox news also known as Trump TV has always been an important tool for the current occupant of the White House. But brave souls likeChris Wallace and judge Napolitano have started what seems like a prickle but could eventually turn into a flood.
It’s easy to dismiss Fox news, it’s not easy to dismiss the ratings it gets. 8 dwarfs its competition like CNN and MSNBC so it is important that they start being truth-tellers to this Administration.
Trump went in front of the cameras and of course lied through his teeth again saying that he never said that there were good people on both sides and that this had been litigated already in the media. falsehood after false it is what comes out of this man’s mouth and you know what whenever he’s on any channel or either change a Channel or mute because I cannot even stand listening to his voice for 2 seconds.
On a side note, I completely disagree with the Democratic party not giving Fox news a debate. That’s absolutely asinine. 21% of Fox news viewers are Democrats and that’s kind of a slap in the face to them but beyond that should not the Democratic party look to bring in some of those who are disenchanted with the current occupant of the White House? I say yes!
Let’s hope that the truth will start ringing more often from Fox news and until then don’t be fooled, the truth is out there.
In one of the best keynote speeches ever, former Texas Governor Ann Richards said some things which war ain’t at George HW Bush but still live the test of times today. Just replace poor George with poor Donny:
This was a turning point in his re-election and other than his gaffs at the grocery store where he had seen the laser check out readers for the first time he made himself look completely out of touch.
poor Donnie, worried that his Twitter account is going down. Yes his Twitter account is going down because there is a movement to unfollow him. I have actually blocked him and when I need to reach out to him via Twitter I use the @POTUS45 account.
I wonder if they’re Twitter CEO also spoke to him about the fact that he uses targeted harassment of individuals which violates the basic tenets of the community of Twitter. sure Dempsey doesn’t want him to stop tweeting because it’s a source of revenue and that makes me sick.
I have left Facebook, Instagram and now only have a presence on Twitter and linkedin. I don’t know how much longer I’ll be on Twitter. These places are becoming cesspools of hatred.
I’m not sure if we are supposed to be feeling sorry for Roger Stone. do you know how many lower-income individuals are languishing in jails across our country because they could not come up with $10,000 in bail money let alone 250,000. So no I don’t feel sorry for Roger Stone who in my opinion has never done an honest day’s work. Putting on loud outfits and weird high where does not constitute a days of work to me. Having a group of fascists as my so-called security makes me want to throw up on him. I agree with those in the community of Richmond that do not want him at a strip club cocking his brand of hatred.
I think the gag order by judge Amy Berman Jackson was quite clear and she has been bending over backwards for this man. I think that she is playing the long game and is going to hit him, bigley to use a term by his favorite politician, when it comes to sentencing. Anyway I hope so.
It must feel like they were just told there was no Santa Claus. PizzaGate, child slave trade markets, all the other idiotic things that they came up with in their cult-like beliefs are all going down the drain.
I hope the sting they are feeling today will last for the next 18 months and they don’t go out and vote for Trump. It’s quite clear now that the dust has settled and smart people have read them all a report or what we can see of it that’s Trump was not indicted or brought up on charges because of the Justice department’s weird regulation that a president cannot be indicted while in office. Robert Mueller made it quite clear and its final pages that when or if the Congress decides to impeach Trump then criminal prosecution can follow because statute of limitations would not be running out at that point.
I’m a little disappointed and not hearing from Nancy Pelosi today. I know she’s in Europe but I believe there is these newfangled things called telephones or Internet, television camerasshe is an effective leader of the democratic party until we have a nominee and we needed to hear from her. That being sent I think the Democrats have the wind in their backs now as I’ve said so many times before Republicans win by cheating did the Democrats know how to lose better than anybody else on the planet.
At least the night as I lay my head on the pillow I go to sleep knowing that there is a larger crook in the white house then even Richard Nixon was. Richard Nixon made the mistake of recording his crimes something that Trump did not do. I don’t think the shoes of all dropped. Mother farmed out so much of the work that did not involve Russia or collusion and the difference offices of the Department of Justice across the country will follow suit as well as the FBI. This is not over.
Wow, the Network that has made its claim to fame over the moniker fake news actually had fake news on its own broadcast just like it does every day. This one was so blatant that they had to come out and say “we’re sorry”. In actuality the graphic that showed Trump’s approval rating at 55% was Trump’s disapproval rating. His actual approval rating is steady at 43% even though Attorney General Barr put out a false summary vindicating Trump. The Mueller team was quick and explaining that they’d never vindicated Trump or said that he was not guilty of anything and yet this Roy Cohn Attorney General was lying through his teeth to the American people.
sure we elected Trump not by a majority of the votes but through a stupid system called The electoral college. The American people may have made that mistake but they see what’s happening and we’ll vote this man out of office unless the Republicans cheat like they always do
Once upon a time there was a congressman who ruled over the Central Valley of California. His immigrant parents from Portugal group a large dairy business and their son went to Congress. And that’s where the success depends. Sure he was able to climb the ranks of the Republican hierarchy in the house but his career is down the drain. now Adam Schiff is the chairman of the house intelligence committee and Adam Schiff made him look really bad today.
So Devin Nunes does what he does best and choose people. By the way this is the same guy that is sponsoring a bill to limit frivolous court cases. So is his first act he sued a fictitious account call Devin Nunes cow and also another fictitious account called Devin Nunes mom. by doing that he gave these two accounts platforms that they had never even hoped to have. Once again like Beavis and Butthead he took a pencil and stuck it right into his eye.
Poor little Devin Nunes wasn’t born of a lot of brains and is not going to have a great career. May he disappear with A whimper.
