Why Trump is letting a corrupt Democrat out of prison FEBRUARY 18, 2020 “I’ve got this thing, and it’s f---ing golden,”   said   then-Governor Rod Blagojevich of Illinois in 2008, referring to his ability to fill the Senate seat of President-elect Barack Obama. “And I’m just not giving it up for f---ing nothing.” We know this because Blagojevich’s phone was being...
Feb 20 9:53am @9 In all truth, he honestly had no idea it was a Democrat, the crime fit what Trump knows he himself is guilty of, so it was a message. A message that the law doesn't matter, a message that if anyone...

Whose Responsibility Is It To Save America?

I have been listening to the tv show of never trumper Nicole Wallace this hour. Wallace was one of the main political consultants of John McCain's failed 2008 presidential campaign, so she is not a liberal by any stretch. One of her guests today was her buddy, fellow McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt.  Schmidt, today, is also a never trumper.  But between them ,today, they came up with...

The Great Affordability Crisis Breaking America

The Great Affordability Crisis Breaking America


Via: Nerm_L  •  36 comments  •  2 weeks ago
The Great Affordability Crisis is quite real.  And the cause of the crisis is not a mystery.  The United States has become an economy of middlemen; most attempting to become wealthy without producing anything.  Supply-side economic theory has transformed the United States into a mercantile economy that has killed capitalism.  When the wealthiest people in the United States are retailers,...

A new Financial Times survey shows 2 out of 3 Americans say that either they are worse off in the Trump economy , or nothing has changed under his direction.  The only group in the FT survey that reported they think they are better off financially since Trump took office are white men.  Among white women, almost as many say their financial situation has become worse under...
Feb 08 10:01am @13 Republicans were never going to "help them", any more than Trump was going to "help them". They have dropped the mask and are raiding the coffers, conning their base as usual and helping themselves...

Impeachment Witness Alexander Vindman Fired From the White House

The White House on Friday dismissed Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, whose testimony in the House impeachment hearings infuriated President Trump and his allies, escorting him out of the complex just days after the Senate trial ended in acquittal, his lawyer said. “There is no question in the mind of any American why this man’s job is over, why this country now has one less soldier...

Trump’s Jobs Record Is Weaker Than Everyone Thought

Trump’s Jobs Record Is Weaker Than Everyone Thought

Here’s how this changes the story of the past few years. Based on the old numbers, it looked like Trump had inherited a steady economy but gave hiring a boost in 2018 through some deficit-fueled stimulus. Based on the new numbers, it looks like he inherited a steadily growing economy and didn’t do much at all .... In the end, the economy has added fewer jobs in every year of...
Feb 08 9:56am @4 Higher deficits, (where is the "Tea Party"?), more coal plant closures including the largest in the nation, Ohio job losses from factory shutdowns like Lordstown, many of the plants Trump and Pence...

With Senate Republicans on track to acquit  Donald Trump  on Wednesday, Washington is bracing for what an  unshackled  Trump does next. Republicans briefed on Trump’s thinking believe that the president is out for revenge against his adversaries. “It’s payback time,” a prominent Republican told me last week. “He has an enemies list that is growing by the day,” another source said. Names that...

I assume that Marco Rubio will be endorsing William Weld, Joe Walsh, or some other candidate to be the Republican nominee for president. And/or he will vote for the Democratic candidate, or some other candidate for president , other than Trump, in November.  After all, Rubio has said that Trump is guilty as charged of abuse of power.  "my threshold analysis, which already assumed that...

Statement of Lamar Alexander “I worked with other senators to make sure that we have the right to ask for more documents and witnesses, but there is no need for more evidence to prove something that has already been proven and that does not meet the United States Constitution’s high bar for an impeachable offense.  “ There is no need for more evidence to prove that the president...
