Trump seeks to reorganize the federal government – POLITICO

We’ve all heard the story of Robin Hood. He robbed the rich and gave to the poor. We have a reverse Robin Hood in the white house. He robs the poor and gives to the rich. This is been clear and his tax plan and now trying to reorganize the way we help those who are less fortunate. It’s shameful and there’s a special place in hell for people like him and his administration.

The way they’re treating these young children coming for Asylum and putting them in cages in super cold former Walmart buildings. The Waltons paid a lot of money to get Trump into office and the rest of the Republican gang so I guess they’re reaping the benefits.

Boycott Walmart.

Luckily 45 is not King and he cannot make any of these changes without Congressional approval and nothing is going through Congress until after the elections in November so this is just more food for his weird the hungry base. And I say weirdly hungry because they are hungry, most of them are poor and these changes will hurt them but they think that for some reason they will be exempt. Were they exempt when he took away Obamacare? Where they given giant tax refunds? The base is being fooled and like any member of a cult they will just follow blindly.

Ryan backs Gowdy on FBI’s use of informant to contact Trump associates – POLITICO

It seems that someone has grown the semblance of a spine. Paul Ryan has doggedly supported all of Trumps bad behavior. Finally he is saying things that are reasonable.

This means there is no Witch Hunt.

I believe when Trump said that he can pardon himself he crossed a line. The justice system is very clear no one can judge themselves. We are not in a monarchy we are in a constitutional government run by three branches.

Trump thinks he’s King and there’s going to be a time when there will be a metaphorical “Off with the head”, and I hope soon.

Supreme Court rules narrowly for baker who refused to make cake for same-sex couple – LA Times

This ruling is not the end of the world for Gay and Lesbian rights in our country. I don’t believe it’s a good ruling but it is now the law of the land.

Here is what is important, telling your boss in Most states in this country that you are going to get married to someone of the same sex opens you to being fired for no calls. There are no protections for the lgbtq community regarding employment.

When I tell people this they say oh no that can’t be right there is always been protections for everyone and when I explain to them that there are no National protections for the lgbtq community they do not believe me. But in fact it’s the truth and until we have laws protecting us from this form of discrimination we are still not in any way shape or form equal to everyone else.

It’s OK to leave Facebook – TechCrunch

Yes, this is my second blog post in a row about Facebook. And what this article says makes so much sense. Basically he says that one should think about Facebook like a car. I have a car, I don’t commute to work but use the car occasionally. Some people have a car and they needed to commute to work everyday and use it all the time. Facebook is the car. Use it when you need it but don’t rely upon it all the time unless you desperately need it.

He suggests deleting Facebook from your phone as opposed to deleting your Facebook account. I deleted my Facebook account but I’m one of those people that doesn’t like incremental steps. Deleting Facebook from your phone just means that you’ll have to access Facebook from a laptop which would limit your FaceTime on Facebook and that would be good for you. I actually talk to my friends now as opposed to just interacting over the internet. And my friendships have gotten stronger from it. I hope you will at least delete Facebook from your phone and at the end of the day if you’re not happier, just put it back on your phone and everything will go back the way it was.

Trump’s Lawyers, in Confidential Memo, Argue to Head Off a Historic Subpoena – The New York Times

For a failing newspaper the New York Times sure has it’s shit together while probing deep into this dark and brooding White House. Let’s face it these are not confidential memos but rather Public Relation documents put out so that when they try to say the president is above the law they can point to these false documents and say look here it is.

Representative Adam Schiff of California said it best, this President, no president is above the law. And Donald Trump above them all it’s certainly not above the law. He and his corrupt family have infested the White House like roaches or termites. There will be a cleansing and just like Jimmy Carter came after Nixon an unlikely president will be our next leader. Who would have thought that the Great and Mighty Nixon would be replaced by a peanut farmer from Plains Georgia. Basically an unknown quantity on the political scene and yet he became president.

I watched Bernie Sanders last night on Bill Maher. I was not and have not been a Bernie Sanders supporter. I was all in for Hillary Clinton from the beginning hell I was all in for Hillary Clinton in 2008 until she withdrew her candidacy. And as much as I think that nominating someone of my own faith, a Jew, is a mistake I guess the same thing could have been said about nominating Barack Obama, an African American. Bernie makes sense for these times and if we’re going to Unite the Democrats we need to do it with someone who doesn’t seem bought in any way shape or form and Bernie Sanders is that. I never thought I would say this.

Just one more thing, just in case you think he’s got a great legal team, they cited the wrong federal statute for obstruction of justice in this so-called confidential memo.

Email snafu reveals White House outreach to Obama and Clinton alumni – POLITICO

First we have a President who doesn’t want to use security protocols on his phones and refuses to tweet on anything that has any kind of security on it. He says it’s too inconvenient.

And now the irony of ironies, White House emails coming out. An email scandal involving Trump? Oh you must mean Hillary Clinton? Know it is Trump, and Karma is truly something else.

Rudy Giuliani Admits White House Is Trying To Discredit Russia Investigation – HuffPost

Discrediting the special counsel is all there is left for this corrupt and decrepit Administration and its supporters.

The special counsel has nothing to gain from this and must remain quiet because he’s a professional and so are all the fine men and women were working with him. Donald Trump says he Mourns the beautiful young lives that have been hurt by this probe. Donald Trump you caused this probe, you colluded with the Russians to win an election because you are a power-hungry oligarch to be.

We the people of the United States will not let you become an oligarch and the best that you can hope for is a short prison sentence for your son Don Jr and you and your vice president, who was in charge of the transition, leaving in disgrace.

Publix suspends contributions to Adam Putnam amid David Hogg’s anti-NRA ‘die-in’ protests – The Washington Post

Growing up in Florida I saw Publix grow from the quaint Art Deco stores that dotted the landscape to a complete taking over of the grocery ecosystem. Finding other grocery stores like Winn-Dixie or Piggly Wiggly is almost impossible now because Publix has taken over.

After living 10 years in Los Angeles I moved back to Florida. I was very disappointed in how becoming a Monopoly has made Publix not a nice place anymore. Where shopping is a pleasure? The produce was bad and the prices were ridiculously high. And I came for Los Angeles.

Congratulations to David Hogg and those brave kids for mounting pressure against the NRA in every nook and cranny that organization seems to creep into. Enough is enough.

Bipartisan briefing to be held on ‘Spygate’ – POLITICO

First and foremost let’s stop calling it Spygate. That’s what 45 wants us to call it and there is no spy and there is no gate. There is a Russia and there is a gate and there for Russia gate. I spy is someone who is put into somewhere as a means of getting information. An informant is someone who sees something that is suspicious and tells the authorities. Here we have an informant not a spy. And until we stop using the stupid word spy because the idiot in the White House thinks that it has good television sound let’s call it what it is Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russians. If his homeland security secretary has not read up on what the intelligence agencies have said, they have said that the Russians helped Trump win the election and did everything in their power to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And the discussion now let’s on to impeachment.

Senate intelligence leaders: Russians schemed to help Trump – POLITICO

This has been a given since the election. And yet it’s taken all of this time for the leaders of our nation to accept the truth that Russia wanted Trump as the President of the United States and they did everything in their power to make that happen. To say otherwise is to be unamerican and unfortunately there are a lot of those unamericans around the Republican Party.

So when Trump in that Infamous interview with Lester Holt where Trump says you know that thing about how firing Comey would look bad about that Russia thing, yes it looks really bad
