My meanderings about politics, 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 was a Sag-Aftra agent for many years. I have had the privilege of working with some of the best casting directors and none of them could have envisions a monthly crew like the people who surrounded Trump before and after the election.
I’ve said this on my blog before, I have seen this movie before. And the last time the Senate committee released documents about a president this damaging was during Watergate.
People are continuously asking me what I believe the endgame is going to be. I truly believe that people are going to go to jail and I don’t think that Mike Pence is going to become president. Mike Pence was in charge of the transition. He had to know what was going on. His weird Allegiance, almost cult-like, to Trump tells me that Trump knows a lot that he’s holding over Pence.
This is a white house that has no head. And I mean it has no brain. Not to have foreseen that the North Koreans were playing them is mind-boggling. Everything this white house has done before the election and since it’s been in power has been a shit show.
The GOP is fond of saying that this dossier was commissioned by the Hillary Clinton campaign. What they always fail to say was that it was first commissioned by a republican running against Donald Trump.
They refuse to let the transcripts of several witness interviews be released to the public including those of Donald Trump jr. The problem is that they have no basis for not allowing this to be released. In Watergate there was a separation of the powers that made it difficult to get papers released because they were asking for documentation from the executive branch and the legislative branch does not have power to do so as easily as it does to ask for its own documents. Once again the GOP is trying to hide the truth about the Russian collusion with the Trump campaign and the cover-up and obstruction of justice. Let’s not forget this happened during to transition and Mike Pence was in charge during the transition. So this does not stop with Donald Trump it goes throughout his campaign and White House.
For decades now the Republican party has had to abide by rules set down by a consent decree. They were caught cheating and up to their old tricks of voter suppression. The court found this so outrageous that they mandated behavior for the Republican Party. This mandated Behavior was meant to expire in July of next year. Donald Trump has changed all of the Dynamics and is going to make it harder for the Republicans in the future to try to suppress the vote. The Democrats have Ben too easy to turn the other cheek and because of that they have lost in places where they should have won. It’s good to see the Democrats standing up for our rights and making sure that every voter can go to the pole and not worry that they will be obstructed or harassed.
