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.
Here’s a hypothetical. An acquaintance calls you and tells you that he has information on how to rob a bank. What do you say? Yeah, that’s great just as long as there’s lots of money or it’s illegal. That was the choice that the Trump campaign had but as we know from the infamous email Donald Trump jr. said “I love it, if it has dirt on Hillary Clinton”.
I have heard all the excuses made by supporters of trump. They say that the campaign was not a polished organization. It was filled with political operatives. If a Russian calls and tell someone that they want to give information red flags should start flying in front of your eyes. It seems that Donald Trump jr. Did not understand or just is a crook but in any case ignorance of the law does not excuse you.
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.
Let’s call, and love this turn of a phrase, a spade a spade Steve Bannon is a white supremacist. Being a white supremacist comes with some baggage. Usually you are anti-Semitic, borderline psychopath, some self-hatred and not very good at parties. So, when you read the court documents that say that he was mad at his wife for sending their children to school that had Jews because Jews raise whiny brats that should not come as a surprise from a white supremacist. This alt-right name is similar to how conservatives have changed words so that they sound more palatable at the dinner table. So let’s get are dictionaries straight. Alt right means white supremacist. Pro-life is someone who wants they have too much to do with a woman’s body. Death tax is attacks that doesn’t click in until the inheritance is over 5.4 million dollars. But conservatives love changing words around and ALT-right is their newest and greatest hit. We used to call them the KKK, neo-nazis, skinheads and the like but now they homogenize the band called alt-right. It’s time that we write into our television stations and newspapers and other media outlets and the man that they stop using this alt-right and start calling it what it really is white supremacy. Donald Trump seems to pick them really well from a doctor that looks like he may be creating a Frankenstein monster somewhere to his new field operations manager that was fired by, of all things, Chris Christie over Bridgegate. If I were Donald Trump I would go into his campaign’s human resources department and scream at the top of my lungs “You’re fired!”.
