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.
Is telling the truth a completely unknown quantity to Donald Trump? He says in his interview which is going to air tomorrow on ABC’s Morning Show with George Stephanopoulos that he received a letter from the NFL complaining that the debate was up against an NFL game or two. First it’s on a Sunday night which is the highest viewership night of the week. Finding the Sunday night that doesn’t have a sports game of some sort is hard. And secondly and this is the part that really gets to me the NFL says they did not send a letter to Donald Trump. But I bet you George Stephanopoulos is not going to engage them on that and let the LIE slip by. And just to compound the LIE it’s only one game that will be at the same time as the debates. Hillary is going to cream him in the debates and make them into butter.
Did the Bates schedule is set by an independent committee and not by the candidates.
Attack after attack Isis and its sympathizers leads me to a singular conclusion, they want Donald Trump to be president. Having Trump as president would give them the propaganda weapon of propaganda weapons. His rhetoric against Muslims wood become the Hallmark of their recruiting videos. Anybody who believes anything else is mistaken and will regret their opinion in the future. Just like the UK regrets having voted for brexit if we elect Donald Trump we will sorely regret that decision.
Isis only works if it can make its potential followers believe that the U.S. is their enemy. And when you have someone like Trump who doesn’t stop attacking Muslims and scapegoating them for almost everything, Isis has a winner. So you should not be surprised that the next 4 months we are going to be attacked whether abroad or God forbid within our borders by ISIS and its blind followers. And each time an attack happens a few more people in our country will believe Trump rhetoric. It is our job to make sure that’s Trump does not get his message across.
Out of 50 politicians that Politico surveyed that would normally be chomping at the bit to speak at the convention only a few said they might be interested. Almost everyone else had talking points. They ranged from I’m not going to be attending the convention this year to I am not interested in the speaking position at the convention this year. This is remarkable because a political convention is a 3 Day infomercial for that presidential candidate. And no one wants to be on stage with Trump. We have three weeks until the convention and I will repeat this over and over again one week in political terms is the same as a year in regular terms so let’s not call the body dead yet. Trump could be roaring back to life next week and all of this will seem as far away as the 24-hour sit-in the Democrats had in the house only last Tuesday.

In a speech full of lies, something we need to expect in the next five and a half months from Trump, he slams Hillary for her stance on gun control. He says that she is looking to overturn the Second Amendment. That is a bold face lie. But his line works for him as he got the endorsement of the NRA. But let’s be real here they endorsed McCain and Romney and their endorsements did very little AVB http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/21/us/politics/nra-guns-donald-trump-hillary-clinton.html
