Though we need the news media to safeguard our democracy,
I wish they didn't try to create so much controversy. Yes it sells
news, but even though Trump bad mouths  the media all the time,
he uses their passion for controversy to gain the spotlight over his
opponents.

The Democrats must use Trumps tactics against him. Or he will use
them as he did in 2016. Though he just squeaked out a win then,
he has spent the last 3 years trying to create passion among his
voters, so they will come out in huge numbers to support him.

Trump and the GOP continue trying to say the Democrats aren't
doing anything but try to impeach the president. Yet they have
passed over 400 bills during the last 11 months. 250 of them
are sitting on moscow Mitch's desk waiting for him to put them
up for a vote.

So if anything it's the GOP and their King Trump who are doing
nothing. The GOP putting corrupt judges on the federal bench,
and Trump is out trying to make money for himself and family.

Trump bad mouths Joe Biden for helping his son get a job in
Ukraine, yet he, Trump, has been helping his kids make money
using  his office as president. Trump has done his best to turn the
presidency in to a family business. Giving his family jobs even
though they aren't fit to do them. While helping his friends
make money as well.

I am sure his supporters want to point at his tariffs on China
and other countries as proof of his good works. Well these
tariffs cost Americans more money than anyone else. If I
were still in business, the tariffs would be increasing costs
to my customers by 25%. Also they are putting family farms
on the auction block. Farms who have been held for generations,
until Trump's tariffs put them out of business.

Some might say we have to stand with Trump even if
it hurts. Well some farmers who lost everything have
committed suicide. Something we shouldn't be proud of.

The so called great deal Trump made with Canada, and
Mexico does little to change the deal we already had. Trump
makes big claims, with little or no good results. It just shows
how bad a business man he really is. In the past he would
start a business, then forget about it. Expecting it to run
it's self while he played games. Now he plays golf while
his cronies do a poor job for our government.

His wall with Mexico, a wall Mexico is supposed to pay for,
will never be built, perhaps a hundred miles or so, and it's
not even strong enough to  stop anyone who wants to cut
through it. So it may deter a few immigrants, it won't stop
anyone moving drugs across the boarder. His wall is nothing
more then a political waste of money he is using to get votes.
Mexico, by the way will never pay for it.

Trump during his campaign claimed the world is laughing at
us, and he would gain respect for the country if elected. Well
this was just another of his 14,000 lies. At the NATO meeting
Trump himself was laughed at. Not only is Trump not building
respect for our country, he is bowing to Russia's leaders by
backing down and supporting their claims over those of our
experts. An act of a coward rather than a man of strength.

The trouble with submitting to a dictator is each time they get their way, they
do something worse. So Russia's leaders will continue trying to reelect Trump
because he will submit to their will. It's anyones guess why Trump works for
Russia's benefit, but it's likely money related.

When a Russian hit man shot and killed a man in Germany, Trump didn't
do anything to punish Russia. Russia has done several things over the past
3 years with little or no response from Trump.

It appears the Democrats will vote to send articles of impeachment to
the senate by the end of this year. Unfortunately many if not all of the
GOP senators have already decided to vote no, instead of waiting to
see all the evidence against president Trump.

They may feel they must do this to save them selves from a blistering
attack by Trump. Well if they really do vote to keep the most corrupt
president ever in the white house. Then they will be complicit and in
agreement with every illegal act Trump commits. They best hope Trump
doesn't commit a crime that turns people against him, because if he
does, the republican party will suffer the biggest loss since their
inception. Because by voting to keep a known criminal, makes
them just as guilty as he is.

This includes the American voters. Though their guilt won't likely
cost them much harm initially. The loss to the country and eventually
their rights under a lost democracy, will harm them and their children
for many years to come. No longer will they be able to complain about
government with immunity as we do today. Once authoritarian rule
takes over, we will be subject to his every whim. Just as people are
in Russia, and China today.

I am sure many of those who are in the far right think  having a president
with unlimited power should be a good thing. Perhaps it might in the
beginning, but power corrupts, making a good man bad once greed
takes over, no matter how well intention a person is. 

When country's were run by kings, the man on the throne could be very
well liked, but men don't live forever, and often they were replaced by
men of greed, and they often destroyed a land once prosperous and
good for their own benefit, and eventually them selves. Usually those
who suffered the most, were the small businesses and the poor with a
collapsing  economy.

Trump is riding a wave of an economy I feel is artificially high. Just like
an ocean wave that crests without support, it will likely collapse in the
near future. Trouble is it may not occur until 2021, and if Trump still
has the reins of power he will have no idea how to fix it. Taxes are already
so low a further reduction would likely do little to help.

I fear the GOP and Trump wouldn't be willing to spend money to help
anyone but the rich. The economy isn't based on the billionaires, but
small businesses, and the man or woman who works hard to support
them selves and a family. I really don't think those in the GOP leadership
understand this or even care.

During the great depression of the 1930's  It was Franklin Roosevelt,
a Democrat who helped keep our country from falling into the hands
of communism. Yes there was a movement toward full socialism in
this country. With 25% of people out of work, and hunger rampant in
the streets of cities, people were willing to accept anything.

It was Roosevelt who fought for the little guy, not the GOP who were
still wanting to work for the rich man, and let the poor fend for
themselves. This if not for Roosevelt, could have put a end to our
country as a free market system, but more like Russia with  a
dictatorial leadership.

We must hold all our politicians accountable. If we don't they will
work not for us, but for themselves. This is why we need term limits
to keep corruption out of government, or at least limit it. People who
crave power will lie and cheat to get it, and do anything to keep it.
We must not believe a man who hides his crimes under claims of
political power. We should demand he stand willing to show his
innocence with proof, and not by trying to blame everyone else. 

I know many in the GOP like, and want to believe Trump because
he does things they like. But we should not accept a corrupt man
just for a few things we like. Instead we should strive for someone
better. Even if it takes a while. We must protect our democracy, or
we will lose much more than we will gain.

Since the Justice department was taken over by Trump and the GOP, it hasn't
done a good job of protecting minority rights. If Trump stays in office it's
likely it won't get any better, because the far right only want Trump to protect
Lilly white religious gun toting Americans. Not the LGBTQ or minority's.

We can only wonder what Trump wants to hide. He wants to say he  was totally
open with the Mueller investigation. This of course is a lie. He hides his tax
returns, by putting loyal people in office to  protect him. Trump has misused
the powers of the president to protect himself and friends, ever since he
took office, and he  will continue to do  so as long as he is there.

The GOP claim they  want iron clad evidence that Trump is guilty, or they
won't believe anything bad about  him. No matter the evidence, as long as
he claims he didn't do it, they will stand by him. I get the feeling he would
have to stand up  at one of his rally's and admit his crimes before they would
do anything to remove him from office. Then I think the GOP leadership
would try to talk him out of admitting it.

The GOP is now wanting to feel sorry for Trump. He has been treated so bad.
Well Trump has caused every bit of any trouble he has had since taking office.
It's not about his crappy ideas, it's his breaking of laws and his oath of office
that is getting him in trouble. The GOP want to claim the Democrats are at
fault, and bend over backward to protect Trump, and look the other way
each time he breaks the law. This includes the crimes of his cronies, and
some of them are going to jail.

If Trump didn't have the support of his attorney general, and the GOP
he would have been removed 2 years ago. Governors and Mayors all
have been removed from office and gone to  jail for doing things
Trump is guilty of. The only difference is a sitting president can't
be indicted due to a claim by the justice department. That doesn't
mean he is innocent of anything. Even if he isn't removed from
office because the GOP won't vote to impeach him. It doesn't mean
he is innocent as impeachment only removes a president. It doesn't
make him innocent, and can still be charged with any crime he is
guilty of after leaving office.

He has already claimed he can pardon himself if he thinks he will
be charged with a crime after leaving office. He just might get by
with it, since the supreme court is likely on his side. At least the
two judges he put there probably are. We can only hope he doesn't
get a chance to  appoint another.

It is very sad that a major political party like the GOP would let themselves be
corrupted by a  president who obviously cares only for himself. A man who
works to help a dangerous opponent of our country namely Putin of Russia. Even to
pressure  Ukraine, an ally that is defending it's self against this same opponent.
Using unproven  theories as an excuse to withhold desperately needed military
aid for that country.  Only to benefit himself, and a dangerous enemy of our
country. Apparently for some  unknown reason. A reason Trump has worked
hard to cover up.

There are reports that in private many in the GOP don't like Trump, but fear
his attacks which might cost them their seat in congress and the senate. So
they feel they have to stand up for him. They risk a backlash for failing to
stand up for the constitution and the law. Though many like some of what
Trump has done. Many do see him as a danger to our democracy as he
defends Russia, a historical enemy of ours.

Those in the GOP claim the president of Ukraine said he wasn't pressured.
Well with a virtual gun to  his head, I don't think he would admit anything
that might harm his country. Trump said in his conversation he wanted
a favor. I don't think any president would risk loss of needed aid to
not help a man like Trump, much less admit it.

The GOP have made many claims of unfairness by  the Democrats with
the impeachment process. Yet each time their so called concerns are
taken care of, they come up with another one. During each of the
hearings GOP members use every method of disruption they can
think of. They demand votes just to disrupt the hearing as they know
how the vote will come out. They support Trump and his cover up of
first hand evidence, claiming that evidence would be unfairly handled
by the Democrats.

The GOP claim the impeachment by the Democrats is a big waste
of tax payer money, but want to forget the millions they spent
with one investigation after another of H. Clinton in the past.
Investigations that were clearly political, and admitted so by a
GOP congressman in public.

The GOP said this impeachment is unfair, because Trump received
63 million votes in 2016. They forgot to mention his opponent got
nearly 3 million more, and only lost due to our antiquated system
of electing a president with state electors instead of a popular vote. 

The GOP said it was bad because this impeachment is happening
during the holiday season. They apparently forgot their impeachment
of President Clinton was during the holidays as well. 

I could go on, but it's obvious the GOP is only interested  in protecting
their president and not the facts or the truth, and will do everything
they can to convince the public Trump is innocent with their misleading
statements. They have no shame, they only want to hold power without
concern for the law or the constitution as it applies to Trump, their King.

Trumps attorney general Barr continues to support Trump's claims
that his campaign was improperly attacked by the FBI. We should
ask why Barr feels he must protect Trump and not the people of
our country.  Why does he still claim Trump has no connection
with Russia. Even though many of his top people have been shown
to have been. Trump is a man who runs everything. If someone working
for him is doing something wrong, it's very likely Trump is behind it.

The attorney general Trump first picked, would not support Trump's
claims, so Trump fired him and hired Barr, a man who appears to think
the president is a virtual king, and can't be investigated,  or do wrong.
Not only that he appears to follow Trumps every command. He works
tirelessly trying to prove conspiracy theories Trump apparently wants
to believe. This is wrong, and Barr should be removed. He has no
business being a attorney general period. Trump seems to think
the department of justice works for him, and no one else.

Trump supporters feel he can do no wrong, because he appears to
support their wishes. Well he only does what it takes to keep his
voters happy. Even if he has to tell lies to convince them that he
cares. They seem to forget all the promises he made, because
they want to keep him in the white house.

A hearing in the senate where the GOP is attacking the
FBI, for what they are calling a illegal investigation of the
Trump campaign. This is just the GOP trying to divert
attention from the impeachment process. Hoping to
confuse the public for the party's protection.

Trumps corruption of the GOP is more proof we need term
limits for senators, and representatives. Of course those
in power are against anything that might affect or diminish
that power.  It wasn't until Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat
was elected to 4 terms that the GOP worked to set a 2 term
limit on presidents. A limit that was good for the country. Not
just for the GOP, who feared it might happen again.

I find it interesting that the GOP, a party who was the most anti
Russian party of our country, has turned around, apparently so
they can agree with president Trump their king.  To deny further
actions by Russia to affect the 2020 election, smacks of a  lack of
patriotism for the country. We can only wonder if they will become
patriots again when Trump is no longer president. Or are they only
interested in political power and not the country? Hopefully voters
will remove any politician who cares more for himself than
our country.  The problem is power hungry people will do
anything to stay in power even if they must deceive
the voting public to do so.

I think we can depend on Trump doing everything  in his power as
president to get reelected. It likely matters  not  if it's legal or
constitutional. The GOP will likely continue to claim Trump is innocent,

because they want to use his political support to hold on to power.
Some might think this is just politics, but it's dishonest, and  they
should be punished for it. The GOP should stand for the constitution
and their oath of office, not a corrupt president.
 
With all their defense of Trump they avoid the facts that show his
guilt, and attack the Democrats for a so called unfair process. Their
attacks are full of hypocrisy, because if the situation was reversed
they would be on fire trying to remove a Democrat.

I am not a big fan of Joe Biden, but the claims by
Trump and the GOP have been disprove, Yet they
will say anything to please Trump, their King.

The GOP cries, Ukraine got their aid, and Trump didn't
 pressure them. Well even if we want to accept
this misleading claim by the GOP. Trump has
abused his power by ignoring lawful subpoenas
from the house of representatives. Forcing court
judgements the White House knows they will lose.

In other words they are just stalling with the hope
it will take so long Trump will face election before
the public finds out the truth.

I sometimes wonder when watching these hearings,
when the GOP  member gets his time to speak he or
 she seems to think we are all  hard of  hearing. 
Perhaps they forget they have a microphone, and
want the world to hear every word they scream out.

This act of shouting is hardly needed, but perhaps
they teach it in law school. Perhaps it's a way to
convince people of a lie, by using intimidation.

Perhaps all this hyperbole by the GOP members
is to get a pat on the head by Trump their king.
So he will help fund their reelection, and not try
to have them removed from office. 

I can understand how Trump can deceive his
supporters, but people in the GOP leadership
who really know what is true still publicly support
Trump. A man who thinks south Korea should move
it's capital, a city the size of New York farther away
 from the north Korean boarder. An absolutely stupid
idea from a man who could order a nuclear attack on
another country at a moments notice. He even
wanted to move all American citizens out of south
Korea it's self. Something that would likely cause
north Korea to think we were planning an invasion
as soon as our people were out of danger.

These people in the GOP have to be just as crazy to
support a man who thinks moving a city of 25 million
is realistic. At what point will the GOP come to  their
senses, and admit Trump is a danger not only to our
country, but to the world.

So far, only those people who understand the dangers
Trump could put us in, have stopped these childish
plans of his. If he is reelected, reports are Trump will
likely pull us out of NATO. Leaving Europe to defend
it's self against Russia. I am sure many shortsighted
people think it's no big deal what Russia does, but it
will lead to war. A war we won't be able to stay out of,
and very likely end up being a nuclear war that may
destroy us all.

The GOP is willing to put the world at risk just to hold on to
political power. I am beginning to think some of them actually
believe their lies, and misleading statements. Perhaps like  a
friend of mine, they feel everything will work out just fine.
Because they think they can control Trump. We can only
hope Trump does have controls. Because Trump is playing
with every life we hold dear if they don't.

If the GOP get their way, and they will likely vote to keep
Trump their king in the White House. I hope every GOP
senator who votes to keep Trump, who is up for reelection
loses, including Moscow Mitch. The corrupt leader of the 
Senate.

When will people see Trump for what he is. A self serving
con artist, who lies and cheats for power and personal
gain. All this would be bad enough, but he isn't smart
enough to do the job, and likely suffers from dementia.
Trump wouldn't be the first man with medical problems
to be president, and like Trump, their supporters worked
to cover it up. But in the case of mental problems it could
be a danger to us all.

It appears the house will vote to pass 2 articles of impeachment for
Donald J. Trump, our president. Moscow Mitch, the GOP leader of the
Senate has already said he will run the trial as directed by Trump, his
King. This is more proof of GOP corruption in our government. The
Senate is supposed to have a trial for the people, not to benefit Trump
or the GOP.

Trump continues his rants and raving about how terrible the Democrats
are over his impeachment. To hear him talk, he is the greatest president
ever. Trump has spent the last 2 1/2 years claiming to be a victim of the
bad old Democrats. He wants to claim it's about their loss in 2016. Trump
blames the FBI, because they investigated his campaign. A campaign using
several people who have been indicted and some convicted of crimes against
our country. People Trump calls great and unfairly treated. Well it's typical of
corrupt people to hire others like themselves. and Trump has hired a lot of
them.

Many people may have watched the red faced arguments by the GOP,
and felt perhaps they must be right. Thinking, how could anyone work
so  hard, and be dishonest. People should be paying attention to the
facts, not how politicians talk. Because they are professionals at
misleading people. This is why we need term limits. To keep most
of the professional politicians at home where they can't use public
office  to enrich themselves. Being in government should be a service
not a career.

Professional politicians will claim they are there to work for the
people, but when the camera is gone, and the microphones are
off, not all, but a few revert to being self serving criminals. The
longer they stay, the more they tell themselves that they are
there for the good of the people. A typical failing of human
nature.

People may look at our rich politicians, and think they must
be smart, or they wouldn't be rich. This is rarely true, because
riches are often gained by good luck, and the drive to be rich.
This drive often leads to dishonesty. So in reality rich people
are generally a poor choice to make laws, or make decisions
that effect our lives. Because they will look out for themselves
over the good of the average person, or even the country.

I have seen this when I was in business. I knew a businessman
who cheated his workers to make a few extra bucks. He was 
caught, and had to make reparations, He continued his business
and made a lot of money. But at heart he still cared more about
himself than people around him. Unfortunately people like this
decide to  run for political office, and instead of using their
drive for success to do a good job for the people, they work
to enrich themselves.

The Democrats passed a bill that would require the government  to negotiate
 drug prices with drug providers. It was sent to the senate, who are
working on their own bill that won't help reduce drug prices, because
Trump said he wouldn't sign the bill by the Democrats, because the
drug companies claim the bill will cost them so much they wouldn't
be able to bring new drugs to market. This has been their claim  every
time price controls of any kind  show up in congress. A lie they feed the
public to keep prices and profits high. They aren't going to stop creating
new drugs as long as there is money to be made, no
matter what they claim.

If their claims were true, why are their prices so much lower elsewhere
in the world? It's because other country's won't let them gouge the
public like they do here in the U S, and as long as the GOP is in
control the drug  companies will  get their way.

The GOP claim they are for free markets, yet they help the big drug
companies by passing laws that kill off competition for the drug
companies. Competition that would force the big drug companies
to lower prices. So they pay GOP members of congress to protect
them. Why the GOP? Because the GOP is a party that works to
help big business, and the rich.

The GOP has lost not only elections but almost 50 members due to resignations
since Trump took office. These people are true republicans who think more of
the country than supporting a corrupt president. It is a shame so many in the
party want to ignore Trumps unconstitutional acts. To ignore his grab for money.
His work to aid Russia. Much of what the GOP approve now they were completely
against before Trump was elected.

Trump is using the GOP for his own benefit. Using his power to bribe and
threaten them if they don't support his ever act. Using his power to pardon
as a way to lead people into crime, with promises of presidential protection.
Perhaps it the fear of losing power than keeps the GOP in line, but we
should be glad these people aren't soldiers because they would turn
us over to the enemy to protect them selves.

So we can expect the GOP senators to vote NO to remove Trump from
office. Not because he is innocent, but because they want to  keep
their seat in the Senate. They know Trump would try to have every
Senator who voted against him loose their seat, and would spend
millions trying.

It appears the GOP likes the idea of foreign interference in our elections.
Because they think it's how Trump won, and carried many in the party to
be elected, or reelected. The GOP being a minority party that depends on
dirty tricks to get elected have no qualms allowing other countries to help
them stay in power.

The GOP is working to stop the progressive movement in our  country.
They are doing this by filling the federal court system  with conservative
judges. Judges that will give little or no support to minorities, the 
LGBTQ community, or women's rights.  We can already see their drive
to stop all abortions. Not to save lives, but for votes, because they
continue cutting aid for families and children.

Though the GOP has leaned toward this in the past. I think it was
the election of Obama, a black man to the  white house that  has
moved the GOP farther to the far  right than ever. With the GOP's
desire for power they allowed the Tea party in. An extremely far
right group who saw Obama as a threat to white America. So they
and the GOP did their best to  make Obama a one term president.

This has pulled the GOP so far to the right, they have lost their
way, They claim they are for the majority, this so called majority
is non existent for the GOP who at best have only 40% of the
country. Unless they can attract independents they often loose
elections. Also they depend on women, and Trumps attacks on
families and children is costing their support. The GOP and Trump
should remember the nearly 2 million women showed up the day
after his inauguration in protest, and Trump went out of his way
to ignore them.

Trump has spent most of his time in office accusing the Democrats
of attacking him. He has political rally's time after time. As if he started
running for reelection the day he took office. This playing the victim
seems to be his way to gain a sympathy vote. So when he breaks his
oath of office he tries to blame someone else, no matter how nonsensical
it is.

\Nationalism is a cancer on any country. It's nothing but selfish acts 
against neighbors. There isn't anything wrong with wanting to
protect our way of life, but if we can't get along with other countries
we will hurt our selves. Nationalism has been tried in the past, but
it always ends up hurting. The big trouble is at the heart of Nationalism,
in that it's wanting to blame others for ones own problems. Blaming others
never solves anything. Trump is wanting to use Nationalism, not for our
good, but for his.

  I think Trump could have been a fair president, but he is so self centered
he feels he can do what ever he wants, and unfortunately does. As I felt
in the past, Trump won't accept a loss. Not only that he wants to be
president till he decides to leave. Perhaps even to create a Trump
dynasty, where he could pass the job to his descendants.

Perhaps those in the GOP really want a Royal Family running  our
country, but they will regret it. Because if Trump manages to fix
our government for his benefit and his rich cronies. The rest of
us will just be dirt under their feet, because he won't even need
our votes any more. 

Trump talks to Putin of Russia often. Is he asking for advice? Who 
can say. Trump hides his conversations with Putin and others, so
we can't know unless the supreme court forces him to release
them. And if Trump were to win the 2020 election, he would
likely put 2 more justices in the supreme court. Then the court
could be in his pocket for sure.

As long as the GOP feels they and they alone must run the
country, the majority must stand against them. Trump is
working to fix the military, by removing Generals who he
feels oppose him, and replaces them with those who
support him. Is this a plan where he can take over
the country if the voters try to remove him and
the GOP? I really hope not, because that could in
fact start a real civil war.

When Trump was attending the Army Navy football
game. Some cadets apparently signed a symbol of
white power with their hands. If true, and nothing is
done to correct this, we are in real trouble. I can imagine
Putin telling Trump how to keep power,  and support
by the military is at it's heart.

I think Trump, and the far right and their racial bigotry
should move to Russia and join with their friends there.
Because the world they want is very much the same 
as Putin preaches. Perhaps they could create that
great country they claim they want. Unless of court
Putin puts them in jail, or sends them to Siberia.

In spite of what the GOP wants to claim, Trump should face
impeachment, and removal. The evidence shows he was and
is using the  office of the president to aid his reelection. He is
also guilty of abuse of power by refusing orders by congress
to supply relevant data, and people to testify. An obvious
attempt to hide the truth from the American public.

The GOP leader of the senate claims Trumps exoneration is in the
bag. I am hoping the public will see a fast track to save Trump by
the GOP, will show it to be the sham it is. Just to save the White
house for the GOP, and nothing else. To show the GOP will do
anything to hold power. Even if they must break their oath
and defy the constitution to do it.

I am sure many GOP supporters think it's okay, and the ends
justify the means. Well I am sure the radicals who use the GOP
only care about what they want, and the rest of the country
can just live with it. I fear if Trump does win, he will put us
all in a much worse condition, because great to him is all
about him and his rich friends.

Well it seems our president is micromanaging the war in Afghanistan
again. This might be okay, but Trump isn't smart enough to know
he needs to ask the experts first, and use their advice before
making decisions that puts a lot of people at risk. As is he plans
to evacuate all of our troops out before the election. This political
move by Trump puts our troops and those of our allies at risk. It
also makes any deal with the opposition there all but impossible.
Because by knowing we are leaving anyway, there is no reason
to make any kind of deal for our safe withdrawal. Trump just
wants to be able to say. "I got us out of Afghanistan, just as
I said I would". He only wants to win, and cares about
nothing else.

If we don't bring the people out who helped us there, they will
face execution, and torture. Some of Trumps supporters might
not care, but the next time we go into a war, few if any in the
theater will offer to help us.

As I have said in the past, Trump is just like a stupid bar fly who
thinks simple fixes fix any problem. When he has a rally he only
wants supporters to attend. Well if he doesn't gain new supporters
he will loose. Perhaps he thinks all he needs to do is get more of
his supporters out to vote. I suppose more people will vote for
him this time around, but Hopefully for the sake of our democracy
more will oppose him. 

The News media loves all the controversy over the impeachment
of president Trump. Because it sells. The commentators and talking
heads are just giddy. Not to say they don't take it serious, most just
enjoy it over dry news about government work.

I wish though, when they interview people about who they support, they
would ask them why they do, or not. Because just liking or not liking
someone doesn't say anything about the person they are talking about.
Yes it is more difficult to get someone to say why, but it is much more
informative. Also it could show their support or not isn't due to the
facts, but for party allegiance. Which in many cases shows a lack of
interest in government.

Moscow Mitch stood up to bellyache about the senate minority
leader for proposing that the senate during the trial to call 4
witnesses. Witnesses that  president Trump wouldn't let testify.
in the house hearings. This appears to me that Trump called
Moscow Mitch to say he didn't want these people made to say
anything about him. So the senate leader bent to Trumps will,
and won't likely allow any vote that would require these people
to show up.

The last thing Trump wants is a honest trial in the senate. From
the time he took office he has worked to corrupt our system of
government, because he knows if he didn't he could not get by
with corrupt acts himself.

So the cover up continues. Trump with the help of the GOP has
worked to hide any and all evidence against him. I think we can
be sure the Trump puppets in the senate will vote to keep Trump
in the white house. Why? Apparently because they the GOP knows
what is best for our country. Which according to them is the rich,
and big corporations. Entities who's sole purpose is to run this
country in a way that makes them the most money.

This is something the Democrats generally won't go along with.
So to continue to get money from the rich the GOP must work
to keep power at any cost. Legal or not. Even if they have to
break their oath of office or the constitution.

At the beginning of Trumps term, many in the GOP still stood
for the country, but over the past 3 years Trump has either by 
bribes or threats corrupted the GOP. Those members that saw
a failed election in their future  resigned. The good ones
resigned and are speaking out against Trump, and their
regrets for the party they once loved.

Trump has spent the last 3 years with rally's and the conservative
media has worked hard to keep him in office. All Trump has to
do is be against immigration, the LGBTQ, gun laws, and abortion
to keep the Far Right support. He wanted to punish women for
having abortion,  but party leaders told him that would cost too
many votes from women.  So he backed away from that. But
women should see Trump for what he is. A man who see's
women as objects to be used, and not  respected. Unfortunately
many in the GOP feel the same way.

The GOP over the last several weeks have complained time
and time again that the Democrats are unfair, and each time their
claim is unfounded they come up with another excuse. Instead of
complaining when Trump fails to provide witnesses and evidence
they holler, and blame the Democrats when they should be asking
Trump what he is hiding, This isn't politics, it's breaking the law and
defying the constitution by the GOP, and Trump their King.

The claim by the GOP of not enough evidence is a sham, otherwise
they would stand with the Democrats and against Trump to get all
available evidence from the white house, and not make excuses
for Trump.

The house of representatives are having a floor debate,
and vote to impeach president Trump today. The GOP
want to  claim it's based on hear say evidence. Yet
when Trump refuses to let subpoenaed witnesses and
documents  released to hearings that would likely
show direct evidence of guilt. They claim their
president has the right to claim executive privilege.
es he does, but during Trumps own campaign, he
said people should use no excuse to cover up evidence
as he has done as president.

Yes the Democrats could have gone to court to over
ride Trumps claim, but that would take months, when
Trump is obviously doing this to cover up his crimes.
If Trump had no record of hiding evidence in the past
there would be a much better reason to wait. But he
lies constantly, because this has worked for him in the
past.

The GOP claim the Democrats should not impeach Trump
because he won the election. Yet they and Trump want to
forget Trump lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes. 
Something that drives Trump to distraction. So soon after
his inauguration Trump wanted to prove it was due to
illegal voting,and failed to do so.

The GOP continue to  claim the Democrats are so unfair. This is
interesting, Because when the GOP has power they step on the
minority without fail. They complain about closed door hearings.
But when in power they use it to shut us all out of the process.
They hide in closed meetings where they plan to mislead the
public about those they fear might defeat them honestly.

Every time a GOP member of congress speaks  out for
president Trump. It's to please Trump their King. To get
his praise. A pat on the head while telling them how
good a job they did, but if he doesn't approve he calls
them  names. Something they fear most of all. 

When Trump was running for president, he claimed he
would work hard and not waste time playing golf like
Obama did.  So isn't it interesting that Trump has spent
almost a third of his time as president at his golf resorts.
 Oh yes, and working hard to Trump is 9-5 Monday
through Thursday, and Friday if he can't get away. I must
admit he does invite foreign dignitaries occasionally to
stay at his resorts. Not free though as Trump expects
to make money if nothing else.

He does invite friends to share a game of golf, but
they soon learn  Trump has to win the games if they
wish to please him.  Many of those who have played
golf with Trump have told others Trump  cheats at
golf, and drives his golf  cart on the greens. Of  course
since Trump owns the course  no one is going to
complain.

When Trump travels he always wants to stay
at his own resorts. This is so he can pocket the
money he charges the government to  stay at
them. This is where he disregards the constitution, 
which says  a president can't use his office for
personal gain, be it domestically,  or foreign.
For some reason neither the GOP or his
supporters mind his disregard for the
constitution.

Somehow I don't think if a Democrat
president was to do this the GOP would 
be so generous, much less others in
the party.

This is only one of many times he disregards
laws, and the constitution. Not counting breaking
his oath of office, where he swore to uphold the
laws of the country and the constitution. Seems
his supporters don't  mind because he supports
many of the things they want a president to do. 
It is sad when people are willing to  support a
man who disregards  the law, and the constitution,
just to get what they want.  This  makes them and
the GOP just as guilty as he is.

One day they may  regret  this, because  accepting
help from a foreign  government  as Trump does,
can work both ways,  and  one day foreigners may
want to  help  Democrats instead. And I am sure
when thathappens  the GOP will cry we must impeach.

We have IMPEACHMENT of President Trump.

Now the Senate under Moscow Mitch wants to call it a political
move by the Democrats. So since the GOP has a simple majority
he claims game over. No defense by the president   needed. No
witnesses needed. The president said he is innocent, and that's
all we need to know. He is the leader of our party so to the
Democrats, and the constitution, we thumb our noses.

The speaker of the house says she will wait to see what rules
the GOP controlled senate decide to use before submitting the
articles of impeachment. So we will have to wait and see what
Trump tells Moscow Mitch, and how he wants him to run the trial.

Even though the media is making a big deal out of this so called
delay. The speaker has to know what the senate wants, before
she can properly proceed. I am sure the conservative media, 
Trump and the GOP will brow beat her until she submits the
articles to the senate.

For the GOP it's all about keeping the White House. Because
they want to continue putting conservative Judges on federal
courts. Something they can't do without the white house. They
know it's the courts with their judges that can't easily be removed.
Who can hold the GOP policies in place. Even if they don't have
the white house or congress. Now with a conservative majority in
the supreme court. Something they have wanted since forever,
they feel they can stop the progressive movement in our country.

Everyone who depends on the government for their lively hood is
at risk, because the GOP wants to stop all government aid. Returning
to the days where city streets are fill with beggars, not just adults,
but children as well, and the old  sent to live in homes where they
grow sick and die. It wouldn't surprise me if we  see work houses
in our  future, and laws to replace bankruptcy with prison.

I am sure most think this will never happen again, but it wasn't
that long ago when this existed here in the good old U S A. It
wasn't till people got tired of letting the rich run their lives, that
it was changed. I fear it will have to happen all over again, with
millions suffering to please the billionaires. In the past it was the
millionaires,  and before that is was land owners with slaves.

It starts with conservatism, not so much bad  people, but people
who want to blame the disadvantaged   for their problems, and
those of the country. It is true some people are lazy, but it's a
much smaller number than politicians like Trump want to claim.
He uses this ignorance to gain support for a conspiracy that he
and the GOP claim,  must change to save our  economy, and the
country. If people sit back and allow corrupt politicians like Trump
and some in the GOP to stay in power, it will be they who ruin the
country for us all. Because the corrupt only stay, at the will of the
people.

No one will make a perfect president or congress person. If someone
is elected who turns out bad, then replace them. No one is indispensable.
it's about the country, not any man or woman who may be in political
office. So vote for those who are honest, because those who lie, only
wish to help themselves and not you or the country.

The Democrats tagged Trump with impeachment, and boy, he doesn't
like it. Reports are he is so mad he can't hardly talk. Especially sense
a woman, the speaker of the house is making him wait. Trump wants
to stand up on his hind legs and shout. I have been exonerated twice.

This of course isn't true. The Mueller report showed several reasons to
impeach Trump, not exonerate him, in spite of what Trump's attorney
general claimed. And even if the GOP senators refuse  to remove him,
it doesn't change the fact that Trump held up aid to  Ukraine to get
an investigation of Joe Biden for his own benefit. An  investigation
based on false accusations.

There are 20 GOP senators up for reelection in 2020, so they will
have to explain their reasons for voting to keep the most corrupt
president in American history in office?   Will their excuse that
politics made  them do it, be enough for their reelection?.
Only time will tell.

As I said yesterday, the speaker is being attacked for
not sending the impeachment articles to the Senate
immediately. Trump is crying that he wants his trial
over and done with. Moscow Mitch of the senate is
claiming the Democrats are afraid to do it, because
they know they will lose. It's all fake excuses, because
there is no rush. Besides Moscow Mitch and Trump don't
want a fair trial with documentation and witnesses.
They just want to declare Trump innocent, and
nothing else.

Some want to claim Trump wouldn't try to get favors as
president. Trump never does anything, unless he can be
paid for it. Either with money or something of value. It's
just the kind of person he is. Just like a mob boss. He
keeps tabs on those he does things for.  A good man
or woman doesn't expect pay for helping others. In
business yes, but not otherwise.

Helping others when they need it, shows what kind
of person you are. Selfish people like Trump have no
empathy for others. Just like a person that goes into
disaster area selling water for $5 a bottle. It's all
about them and nothing else. Over the last 3 years
California has had several disasters, but since they
didn't vote for Trump, he does little to help. In fact
he blames them for their problems.

Trump, the most vindictive man who has ever held the
office of president. Keeps track of who supports him and
who doesn't. There are still people waiting for government
help from storm damage. It's likely they live in areas who
didn't give Trump a win. So it's likely they will have to wait
a long time.

Moscow Mitch, and Trump are calling the speaker and the
Democrats names for holding up Trumps impeachment trial.
I think it's interesting that Moscow Mitch and Trump want to
forget about all the bills sitting on Moscow Mitch's desk
waiting to be acted upon. over 250 as last count. Moscow
Mitch only wants to  load the federal courts with bad
judges who will support the GOP. and their policies. So
Moscow Mitch and Trump's claims that the Democrats
do nothing but attack Trump is a sham, and nothing but lies.

Though a president needs to talk with world leaders. Talk is
always better than not, but in Trumps case it appears Trump
 takes advice from Russia's leader Putin, a man who is much
smarter than Trump. A man who wishes the down fall of the
United States. He called Trump a clown prior to his  nomination,
then change as he decided he should attempt  to help Trump
win, because  he could see Trump was a man 
he could easily manipulate.

Anyone who is ready to believe conspiracy theories over facts
as Trump does is a sucker ready to be picked, and Putin along
with  other world dictators know this, and are ready to use
Trumps stupidity  for their own benefit.

Actually the GOP is worse than Trump, because they know
better. We can excuse Trump a little, but not them. These people
are playing with fire win they accept Russian propaganda to
support their political ends. Something the GOP would not have
dreamed of doing a few decades ago, and should be severely
punished for turning against the constitution and oath of office,
just to hold onto  political power.

Trump over the past few years has had a lot of support  from
the evangelical movement. Largely from older white members,
and not so much from the black community, or young people.
Interestingly enough a prominent  magazine. "Christianity Today"
published a scathing headline about president Trump. Saying
he should be removed from office, because he is so immoral,
and those evangelicals who support Trump, should remember
who they are and  who their lord is, and it's not Trump. Of
course president  Trump didn't like the editorial,  calling it
a left wing magazine,  and would stop reading it. As  if he
ever did, because he  never reads anything but headlines.

The following is my own opinion, and not necessarily that of Furtopia.

I think most of Trumps evangelical support comes from those
who want to stop immigration. This is strange in that Jesus told
his followers to treat strangers as they would them selves. They
seem to support the removal of aid for the poor, and health care
for them and their children. Jesus promised dire punishment for
such acts. So it's time they point to their religious leaders, and
ask why they should turn against the teaching of Christ?

It's gives one to think they have turned against the teaching of
Jesus to follow a corrupt leadership. Personally I would fear
using Christianity for political gain. It says in the bible to
mislead the followers of GOD will bring terrible consequences.
 I imagine the Devil as described in the Christian bible would agree.

Seems the national media just can't admit the Democrats can win
over the GOP. Anything they do hurts them and helps the GOP to
hear them talk. I think the media is afraid if they don't give the
GOP the edge, they can't get interviews of GOP leaders. Well
wouldn't that be too bad. I guarantee GOP politicians would
never turn down a spot on a news program where they can
brag on themselves and Trump.

Trump worked hard to make his impeachment a partisan
decision with threats and bribes. Typical of his form of
politics. I really don't know why the media is making any
deal of partisanship, because congress is a group of people
who are supposed to vote as their voters wish, not their
party.

Why is Trump and the GOP in such a hurry? Does this mean they
plan to just have a GOP vote to dismiss the impeachment? Or Try
to? We know Trump wants to claim he has been exonerated, so
perhaps this is why he is in a hurry, so he can go have rally's
where he claims complete innocence.  I am sure his cult followers
will screen and cheer for Trump their King. Something Trump
lives for.

Nationalists need to look at history. Corrupt people use nationalism as
a  way to  build support for themselves, and it always ends up bad for
those who  support them. Corrupt people, both in Japan, and Germany
used nationalistic  themes to gained power, and look where it led.

After WWII communism was used as a form of nationalism to
convince the people it would raise them out of poverty. But
the corrupt leaders who pushed it, only had power and money
for themselves in mind. So the people gained little or nothing.

Nationalism is a dead end, no matter how it's sold, or who sells it.
Nationalist tried to keep us out of WWII, and if we had, it's likely
we would be looking at a imperialist Japan, and a Germany pushing
to control the rest of the world, and both out to divide the Americas
between them.

Nationalism is rising again with Trump and sadly even the GOP at the
lead. People  never seem to learn. Using a plan that many people see
as good for the country as a  way to gain, and hold power. If we sit
back and allow this, our country and economy will go down with the
richest Americans riding on our backs. Because Nationalism is nothing
but selfish greed at it's heart.

People of other countries are our neighbors. We do have to stand up
for ourselves, but not unfairly. In most cases others will treat us fair if
we treat them fair. Trump is trying to claim he is looking out for us, but
tariffs hurts us more than other countries. This is why it was declared
illegal a hundred years ago except during war. I don't know if Trump
understands this or not, but his tariffs have hurt a lot of people here.

Yes China does take advantage when it can, but so far his so called
big deals haven't changed anything, and in most cases hurt our trade
with other countries. Of course Trump claims he is having great
success by pointing to the stock market. A market that most
Americans can't afford to play in. Unfortunately Trump is still
riding the Obama economy, and of course claims it to be
his own. I fear we are in for a recession, if not in 2020, 2021.

One odd thing is I can remember when politicians claimed high
employment wasn't good for the economy, but now they want
to claim  it's good. Perhaps it's because the GOP is in power,
and not the Democrats.

Sadly, immigration officials under Trump's cruel system is causing deaths,
and rapes of children and adults when they are returned to  Mexico. There
to wait for a decision about being accepted for asylum. Using Mexico as
a holding area for these people puts them in danger, and should be
illegal for any president to do.

Sadly, Trump supporters don't want to believe these reports
are true. Perhaps they should remember their history. The German
people didn't believe Hitler was killing innocent people, until after
the war. It  may be the same with Trump's actions as well.

It seems some people think asking a foreign leader to lie about
someone to help a politician is normal. I think people who use this
excuse are just justifying their support for Trump. I wish the media
would follow up by having people explain their support, and not just
accept a answer at face value. People often use excuses they have
heard, and not due to their own research.

The GOP is still using Russian propaganda to justify conspiracy
theories used by Trump. Trump is fed these theories by Russia's
President Putin. A man Trump wants help from. It appears Trump is
being a yes man to help Russia instead of the United states. Think
not? There is evidence of Trump using arguments where he was told
by Putin our people are wrong, and Trump believes Putin over
our experts.

Moscow Mitch and Trump continue fighting to keep the facts
out of the impeachment trial of Trump. They don't want any
evidence or witnesses brought up. They just want to have
a  quick call to judgment, and claim Trump is innocent. Because
truth and facts make the GOP and Trump look bad.

Well with 64% of republicans wanting witnesses and documentation.
The GOP just might be getting themselves in a lot of trouble with their
efforts to cover up the evidence.   The GOP and Trump want to claim
it's all been settled, and the Democrats will just want to drag the
trial out to hurt Trump's chances for reelection. This is just more excuses
by the GOP and Trump who want to hide the evidence with a quick trial.

President Trump doesn't like wind mills, claiming they are
unsightly and noisy. Also claiming they reduce property
values, and kill birds. Well surprise surprise, Trump is wrong
about bird kills. Cell phone towers are just as dangerous to birds.
Most wind farms aren't built near housing, with no evidence of
effecting property values, and most people care more about the
environment than worrying about having to look at a wind mill
nearby.  Besides  major airports  create more noise pollution
than a wind farm ever could, and  Trump doesn't complain
about those.

Trump tries to claim win mills are all built in China or Europe.
This is wrong too. Wind energy is big business here in the U S.
Making thousands of good jobs available for Americans. Trumps
lies are in support of the oil, and gas industry, people who
give huge donations to Trump and the GOP.

The GOP, and the Trump campaign are out to intimidate, and do
all they can to keep people from voting. Especially those who might
vote for Democrats. Already the GOP is working to purge voting
rolls in Wisconsin and any where else they can. They do this by
nit picking any error the person did during registration. All this using
the excuse that they are wanting to stop voter fraud. A claim that has
no evidence of need. Over the past decade fewer than 50 votes out of
a billion votes show any evidence of fraud. This is nothing more than
cheating by the republican party. They had been stopped for attempting
to intimidate voters by paying to put gun toting watch groups at polling
stations. Unfortunately this 37 year restriction expired in 2017, so the
GOP is ready to do it again.  Perhaps the Democrats should  have
their own people to escort worried voters past the GOP watchers.

Truth should always be the goal by people in public office. Now I am
not claiming the Democrats never lie, but the GOP apparently think
they are the protectors of the American society, and use this to
justify their attempts to win at any cost. This is a old idea of the
GOP. Just listen to Moscow Mitch. He calls any group that is
opposed to the GOP, radicals and hate groups. It matters not
even when these groups belong to the majority of the people, because
only the GOP should  rule, even though they have little more than 30%
of the population. This is why Democrats held control over congress
for many years, but in the early 1980's a new generation convinced
enough voters to put them in power, and since then the rich have
grown while the middle class stayed much the same, unlike prior
to this time the middle class was growing. 

We can only hope The GOP lose the Senate and the
White House. If they remain in power things will only
get worse for minorities, women, LGBTQ, and the
poor. Perhaps even the loss of Social Security and
medicare for the elderly. Because the GOP only
have money for the rich, and not for the poor.

Like Ebeneezer Scrooge the GOP is building chains of
greed for themselves, and I doubt if they ever change.

Today is about love, and not politics, so I prey for Trump, and

them work for us all instead of just themselves. 

That would be so Cool!

So far the Democrats running for president are mainly promising health
care coverage reform, and lower drug costs. Of course Trump and the GOP
are trying to hand it all over to private insurance who they claim can do
the best job. People should understand, even though they may have
good  coverage with their job, there is no guarantee. The boss or the
insurance  provider can  change that coverage at a moments notice,
and if they change jobs, in most  cases, loose the coverage altogether.
Especially if they have a  serious health  issue. They would be much
better off  with a medicare  style plan, and of course big insurance
doesn't want that.  They stand to lose  billions with  a government
plan. So they are handing  millions to the  GOP to help them stop it.

North Korea promised a Christmas present for the U S. So far it appears
the north Korean leader has lost his calendar, or changed his mind. We
know Trump wouldn't like any kind of test that would threaten the US.
So only time will tell. So far Trump claims some success with keeping
North Korea out of the nuclear club, but I really doubt he has accomplished
anything of substance.
 
President Trump continues to attack the Democrats for impeaching him.
Claiming they didn't allow any witnesses or evidence in his defense. This
is just nonsense as the Democrats gave him several opportunities to
provide witnesses of substance, and documentation to prove his
innocence.

Trump has done nothing but work to keep witnesses and
documentation out of the hands of the Democrats. Evidence
Trump apparently fears would convict him. This is nothing
new,  Trump has been known to do much the same thing anytime
he felt he could lose legal cases. Just like a mob boss, he uses
his money a threats to get his way. Not personally though, he
apparently hires others to do that. Now he has the GOP hired
to do his dirty work. And if they don't he threatens them with
job loss, and political ruin.

I have heard reports that his impeachment is driving him
crazy. Because it puts a stain on his name, and his name
means everything to him. Money and reputation. He makes
millions each year, from others using his name.

Trump's habit of counter attacking anyone who is against
him, may peak over the coming year. So it will be interesting
to see just how far he is willing to go with his rhetoric, and
actions trying to keep the office of president.

The latest on Trumps famous wall with Mexico is at 4 miles, and waiting\
on court battles with Texas ranchers who don't want to have their land cut
up. In some cases Trumps fence would set back a mile from the boarder.
This would cut some small boarder towns in half. Leaving citizens with
little land left to farm or live on. People are being told they must sell
land that has been owned for generations to the government for
Trumps wall.  It turns out Trumps wall isn't popular along the
boarder. Just in states farther north, where people know little
of what is really going on.

Trump claims it will stop drug traffic, but most drugs cross the
boarder in cars and trucks. Not on foot as Trump's supporters
want to believe. Also most people wanting to come into the
country arrive at points of entry. Smugglers  would easily
cut holes in Trumps fence if they wished to bring people
in otherwise.

President Trump claims the Democrats are a do nothing party. Even though
they passed over 400 bills after just over 11 months. Hundreds more than
the GOP did during the first 2 years of Trump's time in the white house. So
Trumps claim is nothing but hot air he is blowing at his supporters.

If anyone is a do nothing, it's Trump and the GOP. They are sitting  on over
250 bills in the senate so senators won't have to vote on them, or Trump
won't be forced to veto bills his supporters might like, and the far right
might not. Also this is a defense plan that Moscow Mitch is using to
protect senators in states where they could be at risk in 2020.

blocking legislation in the senate. Too much to list here..

Trump is bragging about the stock market again. Claiming it's due to
all his great work as president. What he doesn't say is all he has done
is lower taxes for the richest Americans, and cut interest rates to help
the stock market. This does benefit a fair number of people across the
country, but mostly the wealthy over the lower middle class and the
poor. Which is around 45% of the population. Since most of the 45%
are Democrats, Trump and the GOP care little for
anything they might want.

Some might feel Trump deserves another term because of how the
economy is doing. Well they best hope we don't have a recession,
even a small one. Because Trump has already done all that can be
done to help strengthen an already strong economy. So if we have
a down turn  he has nothing left but his hot air to save us from a
depression.  Then Trump the bankrupt king will have no idea how
to bring  us back from the brink of a disaster. One that could
collapse economies around the world.

Trump and the GOP are bragging about how great the economy
is. The trouble is it's based on deficit spending, and artificially
low interest rates. Basically a balloon growing, because the
economy hasn't got a strong base to stand on. When the balloon
bursts many people will loose it all, and Trump and the GOP
could end up getting the credit.

Of course if it happens after Trump leaves the white house he will
put the blame on those who followed him. Especially if they are
Democrats.

With the GOP controlled senate ready to declare Trump their King
innocent. Perhaps the speaker of the house should just hang on
to the articles  until the public forces the GOP to hold a fair trial.

It's already at 70% for a fair trial, and likely will grow even
more as Moscow Mitch continues saying he is out to keep
Trump in the White House. Even if he has to break his oath,
and the constitution to do it.

It all goes back to the claim that only the GOP knows how
to run the country, and they will do anything to stay in power.
That  includes denying peoples right to vote, along with the
rights  of minorities, LGBTQ, Women, and the disadvantaged. 
If you think not, just look at how few women and minorities
there are in the GOP.

This idea that women don't belong in government is common
among men in the GOP. This if anything will kill the party,
because women in the younger generation are fed up with how
men treat them, and they no longer have to  depend on men to
survive.

The GOP had planned to privatize social programs in 2019, but the
loss of the house of representatives killed those plans. There excuse
was the government can't afford to continue social security, medicare
and medicaid. They were going to use the loss of revenue by the
big tax cut as an excuse to cut them. Even though they claimed
their tax cut would expand the economy enough to pay for it. I
think they knew as most economists did, it wouldn't. So now
the debt  is climbing at a trillion dollars a year. Trump ran
claiming he would reduce the national debt, but his big
tax cut for the rich showed it was all a lie.

So now if the Democrats do take power in 2020, they will have
to increase taxes. Just as they have to do each time  they take
over after the GOP's excesses. Then of course  the GOP will
point and claim only Democrats raise taxes, and ignore the
reasons the Democrats had to raise them.

I am sure anyone who has listened to Trump always here
the refrain. The Democrats hate me. I don't think we have
ever has such a insecure man as Trump for president. To
hear him talk, he  is always the victim. Then at his rally's
he claims his supporters are too.

If anyone is a victim, it's our democracy, and it's laws. Trump
has spent the last 3 years complaining, because the Democrats
won't pledge their loyalty to Trump, their  lord and master, If
you don't think Trump expects this kind of treatment, just
remember how those in his  cabinet virtually kiss his feet, and
the Vice president does as well at cabinet meetings.

We can only guess why Trump feels he as president should
be treated like a King. He is a public servant, a man who
serves the  people, not a political party. Something  he
apparently doesn't understand. A president is supposed to be
the moral center, a example of what is good, by standing for
the law, and constitution. Instead Trump seems to  think he
should act like a representative in congress who supports his
voters. A president is there for the good of all, not just those
who voted for him or her, and definitely not for his or her own
benefit.

I really don't think Trump understands as president he must
give up his business concerns, and those of his family. This is
why Trump should have never been elected. He has no
 understanding of what it means to be a public servant, and
the restrictions it places on those holding the office. Just
like a soldier, a president has to dedicate their life to the job.
People like Trump who only serve themselves can not be a good
president, and his supporters only hurt the country by doing so.

The worst part about Trump as president is  how the GOP allows
Trump to defy the laws and even the constitution. They give up
their oath of office, and  duty to the country by supporting Trump
and his lack of patriotism. I know the GOP wants to keep power,  but
to allow a man like Trump to harm the country is truly unpatriotic.

The GOP, for the good of the country, should remove Trump, and accept
the ire of Trumps voters for the good of us all. No party should allow
one man to ruin the country just to keep power.

Joe Biden, the VP of President Obama needs to think a little
more before he  answers questions from the press. I have
noticed over the past year he has hurt him self by having
to back track due to something he said. I am not a big fan
of Biden, but we need someone who doesn't step on himself
to run  against Trump. Because who ever is nominated,
Trump will do his best to manipulate them.

Apparently Trump decided to counter attack an Iranian
group in Iraq that attacked our troops and killed
an American contractor. Iraq is complaining that they
weren't consulted. I am not sure why Trump made this
decision without talking to Iraq first. Since it wasn't an
immediate response.

Attacks on the Jewish community has been increasing
over the last few years. It seems people are using
the social media to spread their hate. It is sad that
people feel they must use physical violence against
those they don't like. If they feel a group of people
or some individual is bad, speak out against them
or better yet talk  to them. Killing never solves
anything. It just makes things worse.

I hope president Trump speaks out against violence
and promotes legislation declaring such attacks as
acts of terrorism. It's not a solution, but at least
those responsible could be pulled off the streets and
held till they are tried for their crime.

I know many people fear change, and want to blame
those who are different for their problems. We must
educate our young people so they can't be drawn into
conspiracy theories that seem to show different people
and their religion, as being dangerous to our way
of life.

We can only wonder how long the speaker will wait to see what Moscow
Mitch decides. Will he allow witnesses, and other evidence during the
senate-impeachment trial, or not? Will the public stand for a quick
dismissal? Doing so could put several GOP senators as risk. Something
the senate leader would not want. The last thing he wants is loosing
the senate to  the democrats, much less the white house. So Moscow
Mitch is likely  wanting this trial over with as each day brings more
proof of Trump's guilt. Guilt that would make it more difficult to
exonerate Trump.  Something that I am sure Trump and Mitch both
dearly want.

An attack on our embassy in Iraq by Iranian supported demonstrators
may be Trumps first real test as president. How he responds could make
or break his re election. So it will be interesting to see what he does. A
harsh response could start a war, and a weak one could make him look
bad. So time will tell if he can find a good balance. Of course it may
depend on how Iran responds in the end. This is one of those times
that give many presidents gray hairs. So Trump may have to add more
orange to his hair, unless it's just fake hair.

It is possible that Putin of Russia might convince Trump to let Russia
take control of the entire region. Who can say, as we don't really know
how much control Putin has over Trump, and Trump might think his
nationalistic supporters would like it if he pulled our troops out
completely. I really don't know enough to say what should happen.
That is why presidents should listen to those who really know.

It could be getting serious as Trump only spent an hour playing
golf, hardly enough time to play at all.
