NRA Subpoenas Oliver North, Its Ex-President – The Daily Beast

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?

U.S. and Mexico fail to reach border security deal days before Trump tariffs deadline – NBC News

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.

U.S. military to build 6 tent cities near border for migrants – NBC news

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.

Trump ignores aides that say shutting the Mexican border would be disastrous to our economy – Politico

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.

Infowars host Alex Jones admits Sandy Hook killings were real, blames ‘psychosis’ for his conspiracy claims – USA Today

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.

Bob Woodward Reveals What Donald Trump Trait Gave Him ‘A Chill’ – HuffPost

Let’s be honest, we have an incompetent in the White House.

He doesn’t understand government or its need to exist.

He doesn’t understand America’s place in the world or why we need to maintain it.

He doesn’t understand that this is one World with one ecology and we are at the biggest wrecker of the environment and we need to address that but again he doesn’t understand.

He doesn’t seem to have a big grasp of anything other than his ego.

So when you hear veteran journalist like Bob Woodward who covered nine presidents say that he was shocked by something that the Tangerine nightmare said you need to listen. I watched an interview on Bill Maher and it’s telling that even Bob Woodward has temptations about where our country is going under the leadership of this man.

On the same program, Bret Stephens, who used to work for the Wall Street journal now who works for the New York Times and is no longer Republican was on. I remember the days that I would yell at the TV when Brett Stevens was on but Trump has made those go away. Bret Stephens openly said that he is worried that on January 20th 2021 we’re not going to see an orderly exit from the White House if Trump is voted out. I agree with him. And that’s chilling.

U.S. deficit jumps 17% in 2018 – CNN

I guess making America great again costs a lot of money, especially money that goes into the pockets of the very wealthy. The tax cuts, if you want to call them that, or aimed mainly at the rich. Once again the voodoo economics, trickle down economics, has made the Republicans drunk with spending. This is a party that when it was not in power made President Obama’s life miserable. Remember the sequester’s when half of all non entitlement spending was cut in half? Yes we have a different Republican party now. One that doesn’t care if we make deals with Russians to win an election. One who doesn’t care about its brethren in Puerto Rico. One that doesn’t care about working class Americans. One that doesn’t care in letting each individual have the right to good medical care. That’s the new Republican Party and I hope it’s not for you.

Melania Trump’s parents become naturalized U.S. citizens despite the president’s hostility toward ‘chain migration’ – The Washington Post

First and foremost I want to make one thing clear, this is not chain migration. This is the natural order of how our country has been and will be built. My parents came here in 1947 and I was born in the United States. My dad was naturalized in 1959. My bad had me do the Pledge of Allegiance before my prayers every night. My dad was one of the most patriotic man I’ve ever known, hell he was born on the 4th of July !

So, no this is not chain migration. I applaud Melania Trump’s parents for becoming American citizens. It is the natural Order of Things. Let us not forget that other than Native Americans we are all immigrants, we are all immigrants in this country.

Thousands across U.S. join ‘Keep Families Together’ march to protest family separation – NBC NEWS

I’ll be marching, I hope you will be too. This is not just the March for those being held but it’s a March for the soul of our country. Here are some notes from the March organizers:

Here are the details for the event you signed up for:

What: Families Belong Together: Freedom for Immigrants
When: TOMORROW, Saturday, June 30, 11:00 AM
Where: City Hall – 200 N Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Your Event Dashboard, where you can contact your host, invite friends, and more:
http://act.moveon.org/event/families-belong-together_attend1/tools/?t=14&akid=210393%2E24229394%2EK8Kpq0

Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you get ready to ensure you have a great experience and make the biggest impact:

  • Wear white! Participants across the country will be wearing white to create a compelling, memorable visual that can be captured easily by press cameras. And wearing white has a long tradition through movements for racial and social justice—and has been embraced by many activists on both sides of the border.
  • Prepare for the heat. It’s summer! There is a serious heatwave in many parts of the country. Bring water. Bring extra water! Wear sunscreen. Bring a hat. Keep yourself comfortable while speaking out.
  • Amplify your impact via social media! Follow these easy instructions on broadcasting from the event using Facebook Live, and post photos on social media using the hashtag #FamiliesBelongTogether and tagging @MoveOn. (Using the same hashtag helps folks all across the country track the work you are doing.) After the event, send us the link to your Facebook Live videos using this form. When shooting video or taking photos, turn your camera horizontally, as this will allow the image to appear bigger on mobile phones.
  • Invite your friends. The more people who show up tomorrow, the more we can build on our momentum and force a change in these cruel policies. Call friends and family and ask them to come along.
  • Check out the event materials. Go to the event dashboard to print signs, learn some chants, and read messaging guidance on the family separation fight.

After the dizzying and terrifying news week—Supreme Court decisions that undermined the rights of voters, Muslims, and workers; a Supreme Court vacancy that could amount to a generational attack on reproductive justice and LGBTQ equality; and the senseless gun violence in Annapolis yesterday—we know that we are ready to take to the streets! Tomorrow’s actions—focused on the moral crisis manufactured by the Trump administration’s inhumane policies—are a chance to show the White House, the nation, and the world that we are rising up for justice and compassion and against senseless, terrifying cruelty.

We appreciate your commitment to engage in nonviolent, peaceful action, to act lawfully, and to strive to de-escalate any potential confrontations with those who may disagree with our values. Be sure to review these de-escalation tips ahead of time.

Thanks for all you do.

‘Too inconvenient’: Trump goes rogue on phone security – POLITICO

Hillary Clinton was called a traitor by this President because she used a secure email server in her home. He is being told that using his phone without the proper security measures is dangerous for a country but I guess our country safety is too inconvenient for him.

What a joke of a man.
