American hunter faces outrage after taking photo with killed giraffe – TheHill

I’m not special. I treat the Universe I live in the way I want to be treated. I bought a new car recently well it was 10 years old, and there was a living spider in the center console. It took me a full day to figure out how to get this spider out of my console alive and back into nature and not on the floor of a garage.

We have Donald ass Junior as our example about how we should treat endangered species. We should shoot them and take pictures with them. How much oh is that? Can you imagine how Brave he was in holding a shotgun with helpers from Africa around him making sure that he would be safe shooting the helpless animal and then taking a picture triumphantly holding up the poor animals tail. Now we have this woman who African authorities call a neanderthal, I resent that. That is attacking the address Halls she is not even good enough to be looked upon like the snake in the Garden of Eden proverbially. Her picture should be smeared everywhere and she should be ashamed and ostracized by her friends and family. I don’t care how rich she is she does not have the right to kill a giraffe. What did the giraffe do to her?

Sanders: Trump ‘didn’t lie’ when he tweeted he never supported immigration bill he urged Republicans to pass – TheHill

Let’s face it, since the founding of our country presidents have been politicians. Politicians will say a lot of things to get themselves elected even though they know that there is no way that these things can actually be implemented. That being said this president does not fall within the realm of other presidents and their use of untruths.

This President uses lies the same way he uses air to breathe. He’ll say one thing on Tuesday and then completely opposite thing on Wednesday and then I that he ever said what he said on Tuesday. I don’t think that he understands the concept of recordings. You would think someone who threw the years active as his own fake PR person would understand that when something is recorded it can’t be played back and therefore is not fake news. But we have a president who doesn’t seem to understand much of anything.

Trump on Memorial Day: Those who died for US ‘would be very happy’ with how country is doing – TheHill

Let’s get some semantics out of the way first. I checked this thoroughly and saying happy Memorial Day is inappropriate. It’s a day we’re families remember those who have died and it is not meant to be a happy holiday. To me being Jewish it’s like saying happy Yom Kippur, again inappropriate. All that being said the President of the United States should know that it is inappropriate to say happy Memorial Day. But then do we really have a President?

No let’s go on with this ridiculous tweet. I live in downtown Los Angeles and there are cranes all over the city building skyscraper after skyscraper. These were not built because of the so-called Trump economy. They were plans years ago and squarely should be part of the Obama economy. That being said, that Trump thinks that’s a good economy would make people who died for our country happy is weird. It’s like he’s not really a person, I don’t know anyone else who thinks this way. And I am so tired of him taking credit for President Obama’s hard work for 8 years. This economy is going to come crashing down upon this president sometime in October and then we shall see who he blamed for that.

Do those families remembering their fallen I truly want to express how sad I am for you and for your loss. America is the greatest country on Earth thanks to those who have fought for us over the course of the last 300 years.

McCain’s inner circle planning on having Pence, not Trump, at funeral: report – TheHill

First and foremost I want to remember John McCain as the American hero he was. Captured in Vietnam and held for five years. He was offered a quick release by his captors because his father was an admiral but he said until his Conrad’s who had been captured were released as well he would not leave. He was tortured, beaten and brought to the edge of death more than once. I remember the day he came off the plane to a hero’s welcome. His body may have been broken but his Spirit was not.

To me John McCain has been fun enigma. His autobiography is called maverick and yet one here and against President Obama in 2008 he was anything but. He brought Sarah Palin to the four front and I believe that that has had a profound affect on our politics. He picked her the way Trump pics his nominees without knowing them. She was a long person for the job and she made a trump presidency more acceptable. So it’ll way I do blame cetera McCain for Trump.

Since Trump has been in office McCain has been a thorn in his side but an important votes like the tax plan he went along with the terrible ideals of this presidency. A tax plan that Republicans are walking back now because 1.5 trillion dollars would have easily paid for college for every single American who wants to go. And there would have been lots more left over from that. Instead we gave the rich a tax break and they are never going to spend the money. And the middle class has got a whopping $15 every two weeks in their paycheck!

In the end I wonder if Trump will be attending John McCain’s funeral. I hope not, he is a stain on our country and its institutions and should not be honored.

Cohen got Us Weekly to kill story about alleged Trump Jr. affair: report – TheHill

How many ways can we say that the douchebag does not fall far from the douchebag tree. Or should we use our illustrious president’s new world scumbag, or maybe just playing douche. In any case this does not in any way surprise me. Donald Trump jr. finds it exciting, and I think in the sexual way to kill endangered species. So what’s a little Affair here on the side

Oh, how I long for those days of the Bush twins getting drunk while they were in college.

Oversight chairman probes Pruitt’s $50-a-month condo deal – TheHill

You know Scott Pruitt is done, and I don’t mean medium rare. I mean chared to the Bone done, when he gets a republican member of Congress to go against Trump. He spent Millions on his personal security. Went to Morocco of all places to sell natural gas. Why does the EPA administrator need to go to Morocco to sell natural gas? Is that in the EPA administrator job duties? He built a soundproof booth because he thinks he’s Get Smart. The Washington Post now is saying that three White House officials have confirmed that Pruitt lied on Fox News to Ed Henry when he said he knew nothing about the ridiculous pay raises he gave to his friends from Oklahoma. In fact he’s the one who approved them. He’s turned the EPA into the environmental pollution Administration and I just plain don’t like him.

I feel like he may be let go over the weekend when less people are watching the news although the president may be too occupied with watching the Masters on Golf Channel like he was doing wow on a flight on Air Force One. Can you imagine if President Obama was caught watching the Golf Channel on Air Force One? It would be full confession investigations right now. Fox News would be blowing up. We did watch his cabre of people chowing down on our food and it was disgusting, especially Steven Miller.

Aren’t we all tired of winning, this winning has to stop. Now everything we buy from China is going to go up in price a nice tax increase for the poor and the middle class. Winning that’s all we do is win. I can’t wait till this winning is over.

Trump said he was ending catch-and-release, I didn’t know it was going to be in his cabinet.

White House staffer left email passwords on official stationery at bus stop: report – TheHill

First a little bit about what I know regarding Proton Mail. Proton Mail was designed by a group of physicists at the CERN reactor in Switzerland. The reactor was down for routine maintenance and they had a lot of time on their hands and they started thinking about creating a mail system which could not be intercepted by hackers. Unfortunately Proton Mail has one huge problem. You have to input a password in when you send it and the receiver has to put their own password when they want to read it. So what’s happened is that people like me signed up for Proton Mail never used it because they’re not enough people out there who want to do that much work to read an email. So those who use Proton Mail or in two categories. The first category are people who are paranoid about governmental intrusion in their email and the second category are criminals.

That all being said, you can understand why use of Proton Mail in governmental emails should be forbidden. It’s encryption was designed by physicists and if you watch The Big Bang Theory Sheldon has told you how smart physicists are. It’s basically impossible to open unless you’re the NSA and want to spend huge amount of time on trying to open a single email.

This brings me to the second point, when you hire the best people, well the best people in the mind of Donald Trump, this is what happens. This staffer was using proton mail something no staffer in the White House should be using because White House email is already very secure. Perhaps this staffer had his own personal reasons for using it or he was trying to hide something, I won’t speculate on that.

But really, if you’re hiring the best people would they leave their password on White House stationery on a bus bench? And what is this staffer trying to hide?

Trump’s March Madness endangers more than just the GOP – TheHill

Today is March 16th although if you go by the Congressional calendar where they celebrated send Patrick’s day yesterday, today is March 18th. Well let’s not go to another subject unnecessarily.

March, which still has a good two weeks to go has some interesting milestones in the rest of the calendar. The one I’m going to pin is Sunday March 26th. That’s the day of the Stormy Daniels interview on 60 Minutes. And if one is to believe her attorney, and by all accounts this man is a reliable and hard-working seeker of the truth, there’s going to be some fireworks. Has the opinion piece says this president is working on the idea that if he can do this tracted to the American people from the issues in the White House then he’s won the day. But will America survive? I am worried that he’s planning a war with Iran or even worst North Korea. He is done the bidding of his puppet master at the Kremlin and alienated are allies with unnecessary tariffs, hanging up phones in the middle of conversations with their leaders, making terrible tweets about them and I can go on for another 20 pages. We need to steadfastly look at the November midterm elections has the end of a marathon, which it will be. Once the house is in Democratic hands it will proverbially tie his hands up. And if the special counsel finds wrongdoing by this President then impeachment can begin.

March Madness used to be a marketing term by the television networks to make you tune into college basketball and now it has our country teetering on the brink of War.

Michelle Obama to frightened Americans: ‘All we have is hope’ – TheHill

Oh, how I long for the days of the Obama Administration or even George W bush it’s amazing how a year under this regime has changed our country. I have hope lava but unfortunately Each Day My Hope Fades a little more. Today with the release of this infernal memo it becomes clear that the next step is firing Robert Meuller.
