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.
You know how they say you don’t forget important moments in your life, well I vividly remember that November morning in 2016 when I realized that Donald Trump was going to be in the white house. I was crushed. I have been crushed for almost three years now. All of my fears about this man have come true and some of them I could have never imagined. The never-ending barrage of scandals coming out of this White House it’s nauseating.
Perhaps Hillary Clinton will have the last word after all. She wrote 45 years ago when she wasn’t Hillary Clinton a memo that has become the blueprint on whether or not Congress has grounds for impeachment. It was used and Watergate then again against her husband in 1998. And now perhaps the impeachment gods will have their last laugh. Many people say that it’s a little late for Congress to impeach him but the Republicans started impeaching Bill Clinton in 1998 and it did not end until late 1999. I remembered that. Hand, honestly, it was ugly. But in this case, with Trump, it’s not about having an affair with an intern it’s about so much more. Weather his allegiance to Putin or his love of white supremacist or just his love of money and trying to make the most of it while in the White House. He is violating the Constitution domestic emoluments clause which says that the president cannot make money from his office. He gets his salary and nothing else not even gifts that come from dignitaries that are worth more than $50. Nothing but we know that he has been using his office to try to bolster his failing properties. Doral used to be a beautiful place but industry has surrounded it and its proximity to Miami International Airport makes it a nightmare to stay there. My mom and dad are buried in the cemetery that’s just outside of Doral country Club. And now he wants to make world leaders pay him to stay at his property.
I hope Hillary Clinton has the last laugh, and the majority of American people can finally take a breath.
It’s hard not being in the majority. you get terrible office space and you have no control over what is happening on the floor of the house. You couple that with the fact that the two parties are so far apart that they can’t find any agreements, it becomes a chore to be in the minority.
5 times more Republicans are resigning from the house as Democrats this time around. there’s a chance, a pretty good chance that recruits will get the House and Senate in 2020. Hopefully even if Trump wins re-election which is very possible, having both houses in the hands of the Democrats will make his last 4 years in office hell. He is putting us through hell each day.
Infrequently onphone Town Hall meetings with my congressman Jimmy Gomez. Once I had the opportunity to ask him a question about funding for California. he told me that the republicans in Congress have a saying, ABC, anybody but California. So the largest state in the Union by population is systematically being ignored by the federal government.
Now the supposed leader of our country is going to two states that he needs to win re-election but is skipping over coming to Gilroy California after the equally horrific shooting there. I read that two of the survivors of the Gilroy massacre we’re also survivors of the Las Vegas one. They met on a Facebook support group for survivors of mass shootings. It’s amazing that we have to have Facebook groups for survivors of mass shootings. So once again Trump ignores California. He’s quite happy to come here to suck money out of his Republican billionaires but to help the state and anyway, no. although I have to say that he did say that we should be raking the forest so that we would not have any more forest fires. Helpful information like that is his Hallmark.
You’re either the president of everyone oh you’re not a legitimate president. To me Trump is not a legitimate president I like he’s a racist, xenophobe and a white nationalist. This is in a country that is becoming more and more a rainbow of wonderful humans.
There’s a hashtag that has been trending on Twitter since the beginning of the Trump administration and it is
And boy today shows how he is just a little baby in a soiled diaper.
You attack our allies, you disrupt the order how far are alliances, you don’t defend NATO and you cozy up to every two-bit dictator on the planet. I guess that sums up Trump’s foreign policy. You couple that with the fact that he shows up to every World meeting unprepared and with his daughter at his side. We are the ones living through a two-bit dictatorship.
Oh, by the way did president Macron of France show up for Trump’s extravaganza? No he did not oh, that must really be annoying to the Trump.
This is most disturbing because Gallup is a Republicans leaning polling organization. but then of course why would Americans be proud of the United States under the current occupant of the White House?
we have a man in the oval Office who has lied over eleven thousand times since taking office. We have babies in cages we have little, children and their parents dead on the border, we snuggle up to dictators and ignore our allies, we are raping the land that feeds us, we have swamp creatures running every single one of our cabinet positions, we have a man who has obstructed Justice in the White House and yet he seems to have some weird fixation over hugging flags, only thing weirder is his fixation over his daughter Ivanka.
So no I am not proud of the United States right now. I love this country, something that my dad who was born on the 4th of July and instilled in me. I hope I’ll be able to be proud of my country again in my lifetime.
This is what an organization and its death throws looks like. The NRA is money while they are losing membership. they went from gun safety organization in the 60s to a right-wing Russian loving organization in the Trump era.
Oliver North is well known to those who remember the Iran-Contra affair. He lied to Congress and he’s not somebody that I have any respect for other than the fact he served our country in the military.
The day I hear the NRA is snuffed out of existence will be a very happy day not only for the United Statesbut for the rest of the world as we are the arms merchants to the world and that’s very much thanks to the NRA. I’ve been watching a lot of shows based out of Australia and their one take away is that whenever they find illegal guns guess where they come from? The United States. Is that truly who we want to be?
What are negotiations if one side doesn’t come to the table in good faith? They are nothing but a waste of time and this this case it was a waste of time for the Mexican officials. This has nothing to do with immigration this has much to do with the fact that in a poll of polls of this week Trump’s approval rating has gone down by 5%. 5% in a week to the lot. So I’ll comes the tired idea of punishing theAmerican people with another terrace this time one from our biggest trading partner which will be a tax on all of us. Why are the American people being punished? It’s because Trump worries about his poll numbers and he thinks that his base will rally around him if he starts brandishing tariffs against the hated Mexicans.
So when choose henchman, Mike Pence came to the table he’s never had any intention of coming to a deal because his fearless leader had told him not to. This is what we have come to in the age of trump putting taxes on working Americans so that he can try to get himself re-elected by using some Boogeyman whether it be Muslims or those South of the border from the United States. It’s going to get uglier because that’s how this man fights and I send help good wishes to the universe for our country and its way of life because this man doesn’t care anything about it.
Do you think that a guy whose name is Miller might be an immigrant or at least from an immigrant family can his past? He does not sound native American in any way and the way I see it unless you are native American you should be proud of America’s immigration policies that have made our country great.
Stephen Miller will not make our country great again he will make our country fail. I don’t have any idea of what happened in his childhood which has made him into this nasty creature that lurks the White House. it must have been something traumatic because even his own Rabbi thinks that Stephen Miller is a bad seed.
Immigration is the lifeblood of our country. Look at Japan with its aging population and no immigration looking at Doom in the future. How long has it been since you bought a Panasonic television?
If we are to prosper we need to bring you and wonderful people into our country. My dad and mom were immigrants and they were amazing people that contributed to their communities in every way they possibly could. I am a proud US citizen born in Houston Texas but I am still considering myself of immigrant roots.
ICE should not be abolished but their powers need to be curtailed. Angry people have taken over ice, should I say angry Republicans or just angry trumper’s? I’ll let the readers figured that out.
And now I’m speaking to my state legislators. California cannot be complicit in this terrible scheme. I know that attorney general Xavier Becerra will do the right thing.
He’s willing to do almost anything including destroy our economy to get re-elected. He and his supporters have this wild idea that immigration is bad for our country. Unless he has supporters that are native Americans all of them are immigrants or descendants of immigrants. Just because they’ve got white skin doesn’t mean they’re not from immigrant roots. And just because you think your Anglo-Saxon does not mean you’re not from immigrant Roots. Enough of this crap.
so now he wants to destroy the American economy just to get his point across. Look we’ve seen him do it before. He shut down the government and our GDP growth has fallen and are unemployment rate is it are going to start going up. so this man is dangerous for our country and we all know it even his supporters but they are too stubborn to admit it. Make America great again indeed, America was always great and we do not need this idiot in the White House to make it any better. He’s made it worst.
And why does he insist on making world leaders uncomfortable while answering questions from the media. he gets a perverse Joy from doing this and you can see it in his face. The man is drunk with power.
I’m not a psychiatrist I don’t even play one on TV, but this man and his ability to spread lies and false information is beyond the pale.
We’re at a tipping Point. I truly believe the country is ready to go back to normality. The NRA sent out a four-page fundraising letter a couple of days ago saying that they’re about to go bankrupt. I hope that they go bankrupt because they’re morally bankrupt. We see that even the Supreme Court is now siding with gun safety advocates. So one by one we are chipping away at this evil empire which has had a grip on our country. Look I know we’re not New Zealand but they do have a gun loving society. It’s not in their constitution and maybe that’s what we need to change. No not maybe we need to change our Constitution and get rid of the stupid amendment. It was written at a time when the government had muskets and the people had muskets and so if the government went crazythe citizenry had a way to defend itself. I don’t think they envisioned a world where the government has tanks, atomic bombs, cruise missiles and the list goes on. All the AR-15s in the world could not do anything to hold our government accountable. so I don’t understand the need for this amendment anymore.
We have more guns in our country then we have people. I don’t own a gun, I’ve never even held one so to me this is just an illness that needs to be cured.
