Please don’t believe the rule of “guilty by association”. The rest of the citizens in the United States do NOT share the same moronic philosophy of of weak and destructive president
Be patient. In two years that jerk is gone and we can fix everything he has broken.
Love, the citizens of the United States.
The ancient Greeks fancied themselves the champions of Freedom while looking down upon the Persians as enslaving entire populations.
After the defeat of the Persians in the late 400s, a Greek known as Otanes asked: how could monarchy be a harmonious and coherent system when it permits the ruler to do whatever he wishes, to be accountable to no one? For arrogance will grow within him as he enjoys all the good things at hand…,
He went on to say: the rule of the majority, however, not only has the most beautiful and powerful name of all, equality, but in practice, the majority does not act at all like a monarch. Indeed, the majority chooses its magistrates by lot, it holds all of these officials accountable to an audit, and it refers all resolutions to the authority of the public.
You see, Otanes realized the single ruler is unconstrained and therefore a dangerously outrageous, jealous, and violent oppressor of his subjects.
Wow, it seems Herodotus, in Book 3 section 8, was commenting on something that would occur again one thousand five hundred and forty eight years later.
Hey, I’m big enough to say I’m irrelevant. Let’s face it, out side of my little circle of friends, co-workers, associates and acquaintances, I’m no body. And, that’s ok. I’m anonymous, invisible and, well, irrelevant. But, I don’t try to be something I am not. Like Donald Trump, Jr. So desperate to get his name in the conversation or on social media, he just picked a fight with Olympic Ice Medalist, Adam Rippon.
What is so glaringly obvious is that Trump, Jr. isn’t mad Rippon refuses to talk to, or about, Mike Pence. He’s made because the Olympics are taking the spot light away from his idiot of a father.
I can’t wait for all the attacks on the athletes who will refuse to go to the White House after the Olympics. That should be real interesting.
In the mean time, and forever more, Donald Trump, Jr. will remain – irrelevant.
Trump, ala Kim Jung-Un, says it’s treason not to agree with him and clap for him. Hmmm.
Trump’s continued attacks on the Intelligence Community, the FBI, and the Justice Department have succeeded in casting doubt on them by the American public. Putin must be dancing in the Kremlin. Trump’s doing his job for him. Another collusion? Maybe. Or, is it providing comfort and AID to the enemy. Now THAT’s treason.
Yesterday, Saturday, Feb. 3rd, Trump proclaimed the Nunes Memo “totally vindicates” him in the investigation regarding the proven Russian election interference. Crying like the snowflake his core supports proclaim his adversaries to be, he called the continued investigation a “witch hunt”.
Let’s recall a few things:
- The Russian interference investigation started with Australian intelligence provided showing Popodopolous (or how ever you spell his name) was contacted by the Russians about emails from Hillary Clinton.
- Trump Jr.’s emails confirm this.
- Trump Sr. made a HUGE announcement, during his campaign, that they had “dirt” on the Clinton Campaign and alluded to the fact that it was in the form of emails. (Not to mention his outspoken encouragement to the Russians to hack into the Democratic main frames.) And, THAT’S where he gets caught.
- Not ONCE did any of the traitors the country, including Hope Hicks (who crafted Trump Jr.’s response / explanation of his own emails), go to the FBI.
The Nunes Memo did not, in any way, vindicate Trump. It’s not that Trump just can’t keep his big fat mouth shut, it’s that the evidence against him grows and grows every day. He knows it and he has to try to figure out a way to trick all in his core to believe he isn’t lying (something that seems to be very easy).
Let’s start with this:
Brett Baler: “Did you read the actual FISA application?”
David Nunes: “No, I didn’t”
We could end with that.
But, what we have is some asshole who pushed an ALTERED memo, that is, the memo he presented to the White House was NOT the approved memo from the Intelligence Committee. He did so in direct opposition to members in his own party, members in the Democratic Party (they wanted the unedited version), members in the intelligence agencies, and members of the FBI and Justice Department. What Nunes did, for head scratching reasons, was do Putin’s work for him. Undermine our justice system, undermine the investigative personnel, undermine the FISA court, undermine the intelligence agencies. Treason. Period.
He tried to undermine the Russian Investigation – that’s obstruction of justice.
I can only hope that Trump now fires the several Justice Department and FBI officials as he has threatened to do. THAT will be a constitutional crises. One of which will lead to Trump’s impeachment.
Actually, now that I think of it, thanks Mr. Nunes. You just started the impeachment wheels in motion.
