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.
Nobody in the Trump administration better represents the destruction of norms by this administration than Kellyanne Conway. That’s not hyperbole. She is a paid employee of the federal government. Yes, she is meant to give advice and counsel to a man who obviously doesn’t listen to anybody but himself. but she’s not meant to be the propaganda Minister for Trump and yet that’s exactly what she does on a daily basis.
Others in other administrations have had a similar position but none of them have ever taken up the mantle of lies like Kellyanne. Her lies come out as easily as her breath. She distorts truth and outright lies about it all the time. This is an administration that doesn’t have any real laurels to lay on its proverbial head. Sure they’ve got them too supreme Court justices who are most likely going to overturn Roe v Wade and they have brought in a slew of other judges more than prison Obama did in his whole eight years because of Moscow Mich. They gave a big tax cut to the rich and the rich are giving them their support.
It’s funny how Trump said today that the people of the United States are rich because of him. today I went to the grocery store and my checkout lady, Bertha, told me that at night the only thing they do is raise prices on everything because of the tariffs. this is heading home to everyone and if Trump who never has to buy a single thing for his fat body thinks that we are all rich perhaps the same kind of Rich that bankrupted him and all the businesses that he has failed in.
I’m not sure how Kelly O’Donnell sees the world. perhaps it’s because she has flaming red hair and comes from a country where immigrants are no longer attacked. let’s take the wayback machine a hundred years and see how Irish immigrants were being treated at the time by the US. I think that she was protecting are turf at the White House Press room. But I don’t know why anyone would need to anymore since the only time you hear from the White House is one a fat, sweaty, screaming old man stands in front of a helicopter and just blurts out whatever is on the top of his head. most of it is lies, isn’t that strange, most of what we hear from the White House are lies. So Kelly O’Donnell you should apologize to Ayman Mohyeldin since the countries his people come from are continuously attacked by a lying White House.
First we declared Al Qaeda a terrorist organization. Then we declared the Taliban a terrorist organization and later we declared Isis a terrorist organization. And if you want to add to the rhetoric our current president also calls Iran a terrorist organization.
isn’t it about time that we declare the national rifle association a terrorist organization. It is by all counts why there are so many guns in our country. It is why we have 1300 people dead from mass shootings this year. It’s why we have almost 300 mass shootings this year when the next closest country has three!
video games are not the problem and making new ridiculous laws to put people away becausethey are suspected of having mental health issues. It’s a stomach and it starts with the NRA. When the NRA started in the 60s it was a gun safety organization and now it’s a gun distribution and glorification association.
they’re not even giving lip service to thoughts and prayers anymore and instead are just boasting about the fact that they have been able to pass 10 laws recently that have made guns easier to get. Gunman in Dayton, not Toledo, Ohio had 100 magazine rounds on his assault rifle! Are you telling me that hunters need a hundred magazine rounds?
In the first 90 seconds before his normal show John Oliver set everything that needed to be said about what’s happening right now.
When I said on Twitter. The current occupant of the White House has blood on his hands I was locked out of my Twitter account for 12 hours. They call it Twitter jail I call it completely unfair. when Trump rants and rails on his Twitter account spewing hatred and racist views no one puts them in Twitter jail.
Is John Oliver I posted what he said tonight I guess if he were not a celebrity he would also be put away in Twitter jail.
There’s a disease in this country and there is no two ways around it. Even senator Pat Toomey asked that Mitch McConnell bring back the Senate to vote on common Sense gun reform. Then Mitch McConnell broke or injured his shoulder. I would like to see those x-rays.
Wawa on hiatus from Twitter although I’m not on there all that much, I watched the latest episode of elementary on CBS. Their story line right now is about someone who owns the biggest search engine who uses his data to look for those who might kill and preemptively kills them before they get a chance to do so. When Sherlock tries stop himhe’s confronted with the fact that this man is so powerful because he controls how the people of the world think of their politicians. Sound like anyone you might have heard of maybe somebody like Mark Zuckerberg or the now very cozy with the oval Office CEO of Twitter Dorsey.
I’m famously no longer on Facebook, Instagram and I had all intentions of leaving Twitter. I still might but then who would read this blog other than myself and that I consider that mental masturbation.
Since this is a place I can say what I feel well I truly believe that Trump, the GOP and the NRA have the hundreds of people’s blood on their hands that have died in mass shootings, all 291 so far this year.
I have to train of thoughts that come to mind about this story.
it’s amazing how many homophobes are actually closeted gay men. I truly hope that Erik Erikson is not gay because that would be a giant hard off. That being said people that continuously talk about Calder people’s sexuality need.. I believe we’re in the 21st century. perhaps Erik Erikson should be sent in a time capsule back to where he belongs somewhere around the 1780s maybe, France. I think he would do really well during the French revolution.
I have a comment is the fact that I am so so tired of reading that women who are running for public officeare criticized for being too short or loud or whatever. The same people who complained about Elizabeth Warren being too abrasive said nothing about Bernie Sanders who was standing on the very same debate stage actually right next to her. I am tired of hearing how women dress and how that should affect whether or not we’re going to vote for them. I remember in 2016 when Hillary Clinton wore the beautiful yellow outfit and people compared her to a banana. Nobody talks about the fact that Trump tie goes down to his nice and that Bernie Sanders doesn’t dress very well but for some reason women are right in the bullseye of the Fashion Police.
Erik Erikson and men in general stop criticizing those who don’t conform to your ideas of what’s right or wrong because your ideas are so antiquated it is sad.
Is it me or is it a right-wing thing to blame others for your actions. I am 65 years old. I live alone with two cats. most of my friends unfortunately have passed away or have drifted away. My closest relatives are in France. And yet here I am not blaming anyone else for where I am. I watch as much MSNBC as my cats will allow and post to my block almost daily. I keep informed but I also keep an open mind.
Reading through mister Sayoc’s pleading is rather telling. He blames being on steroids and living in a camper for his alleged crimes although he’s pled guilty so we may want to drop the word alleged. And now in a Shakespearean turn he is blaming Trump and Hannity for his dilemma or at least that’s what his attorneys are claiming.
As far as I can see there have not been a lot of violent Acts attributed to the left side of the political spectrum. Remember Charlottesville that was another right-wing nut who ran over I’m innocent protester.
I have a theory about people in general. Having lived in large buildings all my life I’ve learned that about a quarter of the population veers towards the insane or at least pretty cray cray. And I venture of that 25%, 23.99% of them are Trump supporters, no scientific backing for what I’m saying it’s just my opinion.
When Donald Trump jr. Was told that Russia wanted to give him a dirt on Hillary Clinton he said that he loved it especially this summer referring to the summer of 2016. You would think this idiot would have learned his lesson. But he has not. The first breath of birtherism around Kamala Harris and he jumps to attention. Retweeting the false allegations that the native of Oakland California is not an American.
If you thought that Trump’s birtherism was just political theater think again, it’s racism that has been demonstrated in generations of the trumps. I can only hope and pray that Barron Trump will not inherit the racist gene but I’m not too sure.
I wonder how long this Trump appointee has left in his job. I wonder what sort of absolute immunity Trump is going to say this man has. He doesn’t have any, let’s cut to the chase.
The epitome of an oxymoron is Trump ethics. This is the most unethical White House we’ve ever had and I’m including Richard Nixon in this mix. sure Nixon did some terrible things and I was very happy to see him resign but compared to what this administration is doing Nixon was an angel.
We have members of the justice department testifying in front of three federal judges telling them that young children don’t need soap, toothbrushes or any kind of toiletries while they’re in the care of the US government. Nicole Wallace on her show today said that if a president of the United States we’re going to a country that did this to asylum seekers the president would cancel the visit. Trump is leaving for the G20 and I hope he is ostracized. Of course Putin is going to come and get his briefing but I hope that the leaders of the Allies at the G20 will tweet Trump to why he should be treated, like a war criminal.
As far as Kellyanne Conway is concerned you have to wonder what is in her head. Lust for power? wanted to be next to the so-called leader of the Free world? I don’t understand and this comedy routine between her and her husband his even more baffling. May she go away and never be seen again on the public arena.
Words between one showman to another. Honestly Hannity is not a reporter and Trump is not really a President. Did you see how Trump had the ABC crew we retake his answer when his chief of staff Mulvaney started coughing? I’m getting tired of saying this but can you imagine if President Obama have done that?
I feel like we’re living in The Truman Show. Each day we’re asailed by one scandal after another. Today we find out that the nominee to be the Secretary of Defense hid that his son beat his ex-wife with a bat from the FBI and the Senate. We have a potential nominee to be the UN ambassador who as ambassador to Canada was at her home in the United States more than in Canada. It just doesn’t stop and it’s getting very tiresome. I don’t know how this country is going to recover from this nightmare. Steve Bannon wanted to destroy our government, he’s planted the seeds to do that. I worry that this fake president will not leave office if he loses he said so. He also said that he would not leave if he was impeached although I don’t think he understands what a piece of it is. Honestly I don’t think he understands impeachment for the life of him. For stable genius he’s quite an idiot and a moron, not my words those words came from his former Secretary of State and his former Chief of Staff.
We are living in an acting presidency. The word acting is in front of most of the members of his cabinet. And those who don’t have acting in front of their name are under investigation for one impropriety or another.
And the Republicans do nothing.
Shame on them. Saying you are and being a patriot or so different.
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
