Before people go and vote on Nov. 6th, here's some thoughts I'd like to offer. ;)


Is it just now during the November 2018 midterm elections that voting has been this crazy? Or has voting always been this crazy since the birth of our nation over 200+ years ago? So much mudslinging, So much fear mongering, and so much divisiveness, etc. going on right now. Kind of makes you wonder just what the hell is going on in America right now?

Who should people vote for? Why should you vote? Will my vote make any difference? These and other questions I may or may not have the answers for. But when it comes to who you should vote for, only YOU can decide that for yourself. NOT anybody else. Politicians like to hold political rallies weeks and months before official voting begins. Political rallies remind me of the old sideshow barker at the carnival or circus. Always yapping their mouth off trying to get people to hear about (and buy) their newest product or service or something else.
 
“STEP RIGHT UP! STEP RIGHT UP, FOLKS! See the amazing political candidate and hear his amazing stories and promises of a better future for all!”   Yeah.........riiiight.  :P

But for all the good these political rallies and political candidates do (or don’t do), everything that a candidate says to get people to vote for him or herself is just words. JUST WORDS. Words all by themselves carry no weight. As an old phrase goes: “Actions speak louder than words.”. Whatever a candidate says/promises they’ll do to get you to vote for him/her, it’s just empty words. What really counts on who you should vote for are the actions of the candidate while currently in office or what they have done before in the past. Stuff that they say or promise they can do in the future hasn’t happened yet. So why vote for something that hasn’t happened and doesn’t exist yet?
 
If you’re going to vote for a Mayor, Governor, Congressman, President, or any other official, then at least be smart and do your research about the candidate. Research not only the history of the candidate him/herself, but also research the promises and actions of that candidate and how those actions have either benefitted you and others or harmed the public. Do your own fact checking. Don’t just depend on the newspapers, radio, tv, etc. to do it all for you. Political figures can say and do a lot to try and convince you to vote for them. But really, it’s all just hollow promises. If a politician says he/she is going to promise to lower taxes before he/she is elected/voted in to office, then doesn’t that sound like putting the cart before the horse so to speak? Doesn’t make sense, does it?
 
Too many times in America, I often watch and hear how people vote for a candidate based solely on what the candidate is “proposing/promising”. It seems like some people are voting with their hearts, and not with their brains. They hear what the candidate says at a rally or on tv, etc. and they “fall in love” with that candidate based solely on his words only. If you vote like that, then you are making a mistake.

If we let politicians do whatever they wanted because we either didn’t vote or we voted solely on their “words” only, this country and the people within it would be in dire trouble. You can’t let politicians get away with whatever they want. If you do, you’re just hurting yourself, your family, your children, your friends, and future generations to come. Do your research, folks. Before you vote on any candidate or any proposal like a new water treatment plant, school voucher program, or anything else, do your research and find out how bad or good that person/proposal is. It’s not just government watchdog groups, ethics committees, and rules & laws that keep politicians and their promises in check, but it’s the everyday citizens and their knowledge and their right to vote that will keep politicians in check. ;)

The best defense against fearing what you do not understand is knowledge. Educate yourself. The more you know, the better informed and wiser you’ll be. ;)

Thank you Kobuk, well said.

To those who think voting is too much trouble. Well think about me. I have to get
a ride to the polls, then guided inside. once there I have to  get the poll officials to
vote for me as I can't see the ballot well enough to mark it. So quit making excuses
and do your patriotic duty and vote. 

I hope people aren't discouraged if the GOP hold on to the senate.  The democrats
are at a disadvantage this year with most senators running in red states. In 2020
this will be turned around. We still should get out and vote though as the races are
very close and could go either way.

As Kobuk saidpeople need to vote with their head not their heart or gut as Trump
claims he does. Vote based on actions not their talk. Politicians will promise anything
to get votes. I think it's time we started disqualifying people when they lie or try to
mislead voters. It's time we treated the selection of lawmakers seariously and not
like some kind of schoolyard game.

If you want a minimum wage or good health insurance that pays the bills you best
fote for democrats. The GOP wants to  get rid of them both. If your having trouble
paying for your medicine you better vote for democrats, the GOP won't do anything
to keep medicine or medical cost down. Maybe you have never been sick a day in your
life. But that day wil come and you will go broke trying to pay bills that can run into
the tens of thousands to take care of a boo boo that puts you in the hospital.

The democrats like all parties have their faults, but this year the GOP does nothing but
lie and mislead trying to win.

What to do if you are turned away at the voting polls.
https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/01/politics/midterm-election-voting-rights-trnd/index.html

Answer these 5 questions before you vote.
https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/03/opinions/answer-these-5-questions-before-you-vote/index.html


In other news. Now, about that immigrant caravan down in Mexico that's traveling north to the U.S. ..........

This is an invading force.



This is not!


Know the difference! Don't let Trump and the GOP's fear mongering get to you! They are using fear to scare you and to make you support and vote for them. You can be better than this. Don't let them tell you what to think.

President Trump and the GOP have been bragging on the economy. Yet they want
to forget the eight years of growth under Obama. When Trump was running for
president he was calling the economy growth fake, but the menute he won it became
his economy, and the growth was due to him not Obama. This isn't unusual as it's
a political habit to claim success as your own even if it was due to the previous
government.

It's sad, but the GOP always claim they do more for the economy and job growth. Yet
in reality it's always better under the democrats. Then when the GOP takes over they
cut taxes for the rich, and big business claiming it's for job growth. Then when the
economy slows down due to the GOP,  the democrats get to fix it again.

Just remember if you or your parents or grandparents depend on social security,
and medicare. Vote for the democrats. If the GOP has it's way you may have to help
pay their housing, health care and food costs.  If they cut medicaid, you will have
to look after an elderly parent or disabled family member, who has been kicked
out of a nursing home.

We all should help our parents, and in most countries several generations live
under the same roof, but here many don't want their elder parents around, much
less support them.


Well it's down to the wire. Tomorrow decides who will be running our
government. Most of us will be glad to see it end.  Me encluded.

I have always felt too much time is spent running for political office.
Most countries limit elections to weeks instead of months as we do.

Elections are big business in the U.S.A. Newspapers, radio, and televison
make huge sums of money handling ads for the candidates. Not counting
the internet, and businesses dedicated to track voting trends. You can be
sure they all would lobby against any shortening of a political season, since
it would cost them a lot of money.

I am sure this is one of the big reasons politicians haven't put any limits on
politics in this country, much less limit spending.

I  don't plan on posting tomorrow as there will be little to say or report. Please
be sure to vote. Your country needs you.

President Trump is calling the election a win.  not wanting to admit that
most senate races won by the GOP were states that went for himn in
2016. I am sure his rallys helped a bit, but the GOP had good support
in the states they won.  In 2020 it will be turned around. More GOP
senators will be up for re election in states that Trump didn't do well in.

The GOP leader of the senate is already calling any investigation by the
democratic house an "Harassment of the president." The GOP and Trump
both will likely be driving this claim all the way to 2020. The democrats
will have to show good cause or Trumps base will see it the same way.
We can be sure Trump will use it as a campaign issue.

Winning the house too more than just getting more votes, they had to
fight gerrymandering in most states. This type of redistricting is nothing
more than cheating by the party in power, and should be illeagale no
matter who is in power.

It will be interesting to see what President Trump does over the next
few days.

President Trump may have damaged him self by firing his attorney
general, apparently for not controling the special counsels investigation.
Trump has complained for months that his AG failed, by not 
being loyal to him. According to Trump he was supposed to oversee,
and limit if nessaccary  the investigation of his campign. If this is the
case it would be more proof Trump is trying to cover illegal activity                                                                                                                                                         
by him and his campaign. Trump is trying to replace his AG with a
puppet who will do what he wants. Just as he did with his
supreme court nomination.

Another mass shooting by an American citizen. Trump made the case
that immigrants are here to commit crimes, yet most all violence is by
our own people. When will people realize that Trump will lie to win, and
not work to protect the country or our people?

President Trump proved yet again he wants to control the press. Yesterday
during a so called press conference he argued with a reporter instead of
answering the quesstions he had the reporter removed and his press credentials
removed so he can't return to the white house. Just l ike in his rallys Trump
wants to control the issues. If someone shouts a question he has them
removed. Just like the reporter.

Seems Trumps supporters don't care what law or rule he breaks as
long as he acts the way they want. Even if it's a lie. I fear they will
only believe Trump no matter what the special counsel finds out.

Trumps replacement for the Atterny General is getting a lot of scrutiny due
to the fact his appointment is likely unconstitutional. Trump claims he doesn't
know the guy. This is a lie as Trump said on tv he knew and liked him a
few weeks ago. He said he just picked a man who worked for the old AG.
It's no coincidence the person he picked had said many times on cable TV
that the special counsel was doing a improper job. Trump likely picked him to
stop an investigation that may put him and his family in prison.

President Trump and the GOP are up to their old tricks again. They are
claiming election fraud in states where the GOP may loose in close races. 

They never fuss when they win, even if it's by a few votes. Trump is making
noises that there might be a federal investigation if any of the GOP candidates
loose.

All of this is just Trump and the GOP trying to convince their voting base that
the Democrats are crooked and cheat to win. Anyone who really follows
the facts know it's the GOP who are crooked and cheat at every turn. They
are an minority party, so the only way they win is by gerrymandering, and
limiting votes any way they can, along with telling lies. Now they are trying
to call absent T, and provisional ballots illegal. Even early voting ballots as
well. That is those who support the democratic candidate. Even trying to
say vote counters don't have the proper training to do the job.

Hopefully the democrats will stand up to this un American activity and show
the GOP for what it is. "Bought and paid puppets of the super rich."

President Trump went to France in part as a ceramony for the soldiers
of WWI. There is reports that Trump plans to have a meeting with 
Russia's Putin while there. The Europian Union has plans to build
up it's military. Trump had responded calling the French Presidents 
comment a insul, when he said it could be used against the Unightd
States if needed. Trump didn't comment on this later.

Voting in the state of Georgia is still up in the air. The man running
for govenor is trying to claim victory even though many votes have 
yet to be counted. He is even trying to use govenorial powers to
win the election. Trump is even calling for a new election trying to
say there was voter fraud. In fact it's nothing but the GOP trying to
use dirty tricks to win. They are trying to do the same thing in Florida
and Nevada hoping to gain two more senate seats.

President Trump released a modified video trying to show a reporter
hitting a woman staff member attempting to take the microphone
from him. It appears Trump isn't satisfied with lieing, he is releasing 
frauduelent videos now.

With a democratic house Trump is going to face real investigations of
his actions. No longer will he have the GOP to cover up for him. So
we can expect even more bluster from him. Already he is making
threats of war against the democrats if they investigate him or his
family. I think Trump is running scared, because he knows house
protection is gone. Hopefully he doesn't do something crazy between
now and the 2020 election.

Trumps call for nationalism could very well cause another world war. It's nations
working  together that helps keep the peace. When countries loose trust with each
other they start building protection for heir own interests. This can easily lead
to preemptive strikes that could lead to world war.

The democrats should investigate the president. They should pass legislation
that  they can point to in 2020 if the GOP or Trump fail to support it. Trump and
the GOP will try to say the democrats were only interested in punishment and not
good government if they don't. The democrats have to stand up and show the public
they are there for the good of the country. Putting limits on Trump is part of that.

How far willPresident Trump go trying to feed his supporters? He is treating
women of color with rude nasty remarks. Calling a professional reporter stupid,
and told a foreign woman reporter he couldn't understand her speech. It's possible
he was distracted for a moment, but his treatment of women says otherwise.

Trump claims he supports the military, but during his campaign he rand down
people who had served with distinction. Especially if they are killed or fail some
way, even to get get captured.  Trump likes the idea of a strong military, but
he does not respect those who serve. If they don't fit his idea of a good soldier
he is ready to expel them. He sent thousands of regular army troops to the
Mexican boarder trying to gain more votes for the GOP. He didn't care that he
was taking them away from their family. He didn't care they would miss being
with family during their fanksgiving holiday. Just to  sit at the boarder and call
the boarder patrol they see an illegal alien. They are not there to fight, if one
of them were to shoot a alien they could face legal troubles.

Trump claims Obama was the cause of cutting spending for the military. Well
the GOP owns it too. They were wanting to cut spending, and the budget cuts
for the military was supported by the GOP.

Think it wasn't about politics? Well have you heard anything aobut the so called
caravan or invasion since the election? Seems Trump has put it out of mind. So
it's not important any more. Trump will have spent over 100 million in tax dollars
for little return.

Nationalisim puts our country at risk. Think about it. It you stopped trusting
your neighbor you will start building walls and even arming yourself with
guns and attack dogs. Obviously your neighbor will respond in kind. This lack
of trust leads to conflicts, not prosperity between nations.

This nationalistic push by the far right will destroy our country, and possibly
the world. Trump is pushing it because he thinks it will keep him in the White
House. He doesn't care about you or our country,, it's all about himself and
how much money he can make as president. 

President Trump tweeted that it was bad forest managment by the state
of California that is causing the terrible fires there. I think trying to use
such a terrible event for political gain is more proof of Trumps immorality.
If there is cause to think the state of california is to blaim then investigate
it after the fires, not during them. If anything Trump should be offering
help to fight the fires. Instead he sends troops of the Mexican boarder
for political gain and little else.

To hear our fake president talk the only fair election is one the GOP wins. He
is trying to call for new elections because he wants the GOP to win. It's ok to
want to win, but not by the cheating of any party.

Trump and the GOP care more about winning than they do about our democracy.
These claims of voter fraud harms our democracy, not helping it. Seems the GOP
is so scared of cultural shift in this country they will do anything to win. They are
packing the court system with conservative judges to protect their cheating and
limits on voting. It's time we put limits on the Super Rich and not the average
American.

President Trump finally backed down. and is declaring emergency status to  the
state of California over this fire tragedy. I guess he was told his tweet was bad
for his image, and the weather was at fault. Not the state of California who Trump
doesn't like because they voted for H Clinton.

The GOP and Trump are claiming the democrats are trying to steal the governor
and senate race in Florida. What they don't admit is the fact the GOP controlled 
state of Florida refuses to update voting systems in  aereas that are heavily
democratic. This greatly slows vote counts and leads to errors. This isn't new, the
GOP has used this trying to limit votes by democrats for years.

Of course supporters of Trump want to believe him when he claims fvoter fraud.
The day is coming when the GOP's dirty tricks won't be enough to keep them
in power. Hopefully when democrats take power they will put an end to this kind
of voter fraud. If the GOP would quit trying to suck up to the Super rich, they
wouldn't need to use dirty tricks to win. Unfortunately many of those leading
the GOP are like Trump. They think only rich people are smart enough to
run the country. They seem to think the  rest of us need their advice, as we
aren't smart enough. They think ocial programs hurt the country, and designed
to get lazy people to vote for democrats.

Hate crimes have encreased since Trump took power almost 2 years ago.
Though many try to deny it, Trumps hateful rhetoric is likely the cause. When
asked far right and hate groups are happy with Trump in the white house.
They feel embolden by his apparent support.

President Trump is apparently depressed due to the GOP losses in the
midterm election. Even so upset  his staff is avoiding him where possible.
Trump is a man who isn't used to loosing or told no by anyone.

Trump talks about how good a deal maker he is, but it's winning the deal 
he wants, not the compromises he is facing with the democrats in power.

Compromise is the name of the game with politics. The GOP own on power
has given Trump most of what he wants. Rule by decree. This is going to
change and Trump knows it, and it drives him crazy. As we have seen in
the past, when Trump is aggravated he becomes obsessed with the cause
of it for days.

We should expect to see changes in the white house staaff, as it's
likely Trump is looking to blame others for his failures. Even cabinet
members could find themselves without a job. Changes after the
midterm is common with presidents, but with Trump who can say.

President Trumps appointment to the office of atterny general is still causing
problems. The constitution requires the deputy atterny general to take over if
the AG leaves, but Trump is apparently trying to pull a fast one by putting
a fixer for himself in as atterny general. Time will tell if Trump gets by
with it or not.

The democrats continue to pick up seats in the house even after a week
of vote counting in California. The democrats only needed 23 flips to gain
control, but they may end upgaining 40 seats.

According to the news media the Democrats are arguing about who is to
be the speaker of the house. I don't think it's as big a deal as the media 
is making it out to be, but the democrats need to work together and not
fight.

Sometimes I wish there was another party we could  vote for. Hopefully we
will have more moderate independant members in congress as time goes by.

Secretary Carson who oversee's HUD is paying holders of large apartment
complexes millions of tax dollars. This in it's self is fine, but it turns out these
appartments are falling apart with mold, andinfested with  roaches and vermin.

Housing for the poor as this is reprehensible. You would think HUD would require
these conditions repaired, and cleaned up. Yet HUD just continues to give extensions
 
to the owners while paying them over $1000 a month per apartment. Instead HUD
should fine them for renting appartments like these to HUD.

Secretary Carson works for president Trump so it's Trumps responsibility. I rather
doubt if Trump even cares as in his  mind poor people are losers who take money
from his pocket.

Presidents Trumps secretary of education has cost tax payers 20 million to
provide her with extra special protection by federal marshalls. More than any
other cabinet member who cost a bit over 3 million. This started when the
secretary was heckled while speaking at a school. This woman is pushing
very controversial ideas for our public schools, so it's no wonder she would
meet with some opposition. I very much doubt if she has any credible
threats of serious violence to her person. Any that are related to her job
as Secretary of Education that is.

I think she is just a spoiled multi billionaire who expects special treatment.
If she feels so threatened she should resign instead of costing tax payers
millions of dollars.

Supporters of Trump should be complaining about Trumps excessive costs
to our country. Trump thinks his billionaire friends are so smart . Instead
they cost us 100's of millions that could help imporove the lives of  many
many American citizens.

A federal court judge rules the white house must return a press pass to a
CNN reporter. The White house had claimed the reporter was disruptive, and
had to be removed. The judge ruled that the reporter was denyed due process.
 I bet this decision irritated Trump, as the judge was one of his appointees.

I saw the interaction between the reporter and Trump. The only disruption was
to Trumps authority, not to the news conference. Trump doesn't like it when his
answers are questioned. All Trump had to say was "No comment", but Trump
wanted to create the problem in the first place. Trumps supporters like it when
he gives reporters a hard time. Just as he does during his rallys.

President Trump is going to California to see the fire damaged areas.  I think this is
Trump trying to rebuild a bridge he destroyed with his tweets about poor forest
management causing the fires. I expect Trump is hoping to improve his chances
for the 2020 election. Trump has no empathy so he best not adlib and stay with
his pre prepared speeches while there. Trump doesn't like the fact California gave
H Clinton a big majority in the popular vote.

The GOP leader of the senate is doing his best to hold power for the GOP by putting
young conservative judges in the federal court system. He has been responsible for
allowing dark money into politics. Allowing millions to be donated by billionaires to
help keep the minority party of the GOP in power. He is also responsible for limiting
the peoples right to vote. He feels only the GOP should rule the United States, and
continues to do all he can to stop the democrats so they can't pass any legislation
that helps the average American, or the poor.. In some ways this man is a greater
risk to our country than Trump. The only way to stop him is for the democrats to
take the senate.

President Trump is apparently trying to hand a Turkish claret over to the Turkish
leader, so he will stop talking about the Saudi Prince having a hand in the assassination 
of the Washington post reporter. This Turkish man is a card carring citizen of the U.S.A.
The leader of Turkey wants this man so he can imprison, torture and kill him after
a mock trial for treason. This man has lived in the united states legally for 20 years.
Yet Trump is trying to send him to his death. Likely to please the Saudi Prince. One
has to wonder if it's a bribe. Trump has been trying to borrow money from the Saudi
Prince, so it's pretty suspicious.

There is a handfull of white democrats who is trying to dictate who should be speaker
of the house when the democrats take over. The GOP has been trying to run down Nancy
Pelosi for years. This fact is a good enough reason to put her in the position. She has been
a very effective leader of the democratic party. I think this is whay the GOP worked so hard
to defeat H.Clinton. They knew she could hurt the GOP's image.

The democrats have a long list of people who will be called to answer questions
under oath in public hearings. The white wash by the GOP over the past 2 years
to protect Trump and his cronies will soon be exposed for what it is. I have
a hunch there is a lot of lawyers being hired to help Trumps appointees get
through these hearings unscathed. 

It's time the democrats put more minorities in leadership positions. Without
women, African American, and other minority voters the democrats would lose
nearly every election. So it's time they recognized their value and their rights
in our republic. The GOP is even worse in that they have few women and minorities
in their caucus.

President Trump wants to control the press. If he can't he wants to say it's
fake. This is an attack on our democracy, not just the press. Trump knows
when his lies are revealed they hurt his credibility. This is why Trump plants
friendly people in his audience. Even friendly fake reporters in his news
conferences. This is why he is on Fox News. They treat Trump like a
prince because they are paid to do so.

Trump has done this from the beginning, putting paid supporters in audiences
to make him look better than he actually is. Trump bad mouths the press, but
he loves the press. He uses the press by lieing and making fake claims. He
knows the press will jump at anything that is strange or fake. Trump used
this tactic during his campaign to get much more exposure than he would have
gotten otherwise. We should expect him to continue doing this hoping to win
in 2020.

President Trump tries to claim the CIA is wrong each time they tell him
facts that go against his wishes.  This denial of real facts can cause bad
decisions that may hurt the country economically,  diplomatically and
militarily. Doing this just to help him politically and financially is wrong
and un patriotic. Denying real facts has caused the downfall of many
countries.
 
President Trump continues to make weird claims about the fires in California.
Even to say raking leaves in the woods. Big fires travel in the trees more than
they do on the ground. Actually it's my understanding the reason we have
these huge fires is because we don't let small fires clear out brush and
undergrowth. In this case it's more to do with dry weather and high winds. If
Trump wants to fuss , he should be fussing at the U.S. forest service. They
look after 60% of California forests. His claims that Finland has less fires
due to forest management is just another one of Trumps false stories.
Finland said Trumps claims were not valid.

The next presidential election is 2 years away and foreign interests are starting
to advertise false info on Facebook and other online social media sites. Apparently
in support of Trump and the GOP. They seem to believe keeping Trump in the
white house will continue to weaken United States influence abroad. No
doubt countries like China, and Russia want to gain influence on the world scene.
Dictators around the world would love to see the United States turn inward, and
leave them alone.

Well well well it would seem the presidents daughter has used personal email
accounts to send messages to other people in Trumps administration. Not just
birthday wishes or greetings, but white house data, perhaps classified information
too. Not only his daughter, but others in the white house staff as well. Trump
himself uses a unprotected cell phone  to talk to friends and who knows else.

Trump preached time and time again about how illegal this kind of use of emails is for
government workers. So is he calling for his daughter to be "Locked UP"?  Of
course not. "This is different according to the white house. So it's okay for Trump
and his people to break the law. Olh they didn't know it was wrong. This is sad and
laughable as she and others in Trumps circle would have had to have been in a
trance to not know about Trumps attacks on Clintons emails.

The democrats decision of who will be the speaker of the house is still up in the air.
Hopefully they get this cleared up before they take power. The democrats have a lot
on their plate without fighting over weho is to be speaker.

President Trump is the lazyest man we have ever had  in the white house. On
monday of this week all he did was watch a horse drawn wagon bring a christmas
tree to the white house. Oh he did give one of the horses a pat on the rump. Trump
claims he is on the phone several hours a day working, but who is he talking to?
Reports say he calls people at Fox news and other friends more than anyone
else. Who can say what he  talks about. It's very possible the leaks Trump
complains about were leaked by himself, because he loves to bragg.

Even though the CIA concluded the crown prince of Saudi Arabia was likely
responsible for the murder of the Washington post reporter, Trump sill claims
he believes the prince when he said he didn't know about it. Trump added that
there was too much at stake to punish the Saudi's for this act. Trump claimed
that Saudi Arabia was spending hundreds of billions which kept hundreds of
thousands of Americans working. The facts are that Saudi Arabia only has
about 15 billion under contract. This supports only about 20,000 jobs, not
hundreds of thousands like Trump claims.

One could claim one life isn't worth the loss of jobs. But how many will be
killed before people like Trump will take a stand for them? Also if we start
putting prices on humanity where will it end?

I wish all Americans a happy Thanksgiving.

President Trump had a q and a with the press this morning after wishing
the military a happy Thanksgiving. As usual it was more of a speech
after answering each questions. In many cases he didn't even answer
the question. Just responded with rambling and repeating complaints
about those who oppose him. And of course his claims of
his great decisions and the economy.

Much of what Trump complained about was decisions by the federal court. As
usual Trump made mistakes about which court that was involved. Trump
doesn't like it when the courts block his unconstitutional decrees. To hear
Trump talk he and his people are smarter than anyone else. It's easy to tell
when Trump lies or pushes one of his  dumb ideas. He just goes on, and on,
and on about how bad or good it is.

Trump and the GOP have ben and will continue trying to pack the court
system with conservative judges. You can be sure it it was the democrats
doing it the GOP would be crying foul, and how terrible it is. This will
continue as long as the GOP control the white house and the senate.

What is the GOP up to? They are starting a hearing on how the FBI
director handled investigations during the 2016 election. Seems to  me
they should have done that  2 years ago. Now they want to have closed
door hearings where they could leak out of context information. This is
likely some last minute posturing trying to look like they really care.

Will the fake AG try to stop the investigation by the special counsel? It's
hard to say. Even to  know as the AG can coverup almost anything he
wants. A perfect fixer for Trump and his cronies. At least Trump hopes so.

The new democrat house of Representatives can call the fake atterney
general in for questioning. So he might have to talk or face serious
troubles.

President Trump is saying he may shut down the government if
congress fails to fund his big wall with Mexico. Trump is likely
hopeing for a conflict that the army will have to deal with. This
could backfire on Trump if innocent  families are caught in a
crossfire.

Is president Trump a coward? After 22 months in office Trump hasn't met
with the troops on forign soil or in war zones unlike previous presidents.
He makes excuses for not going to military cemeteries. Could it be he
doesn't want to face the reality of death? We know he avoided the draft
while tens of thousands wen to war in Viet Nam. Trump has spent most
of his adult life protected by body guards. Now he is under the protection
of the secret service, who will be with him till his death. There is some
evidence he still has his own personal body guards. Could it be he
fears someone in  the secret service might come after him? Who can say.

There is a run off election for the U.S. Senate in Mississippi next tuesday.
Being a red state it's likely the republican will when, but the democrat is
pressing hard. So there is a possibility the democrat could win. Trump is
going there to a political rally. I have a hunch it's more of a rally for Trump
than the GOP candidate. Time will tell who wins.  It would be an embarrassment
for Trump if the republican lost. Especially after having a rally for her.

Southern states have a reputation for being racist and hard right conservative.
They don't do much to help the poor or minorities either.  The GOP have a habit
of blaming the poor for being poor. Instead they work hard to help the rich. This
might make America great for the rich, but not for the rest of us.

The GOP claim helping the rich will make jobs, and cutting taxes will help the
economy. So I wonder why the country does better with more pay for workers
under the democrats who raise taxes, regualte big businesses and help the poor.

The last time the country had a balanced budget was with a democrat in the
white house. Yet the GOP continues to have big debt due to their tax cuts.
It's likely because the  GOP's help for the rich hurts the economy instead
of helping as they claim.

A government report on the inviroment came out the other day. It  gives dire
predictions we can expect over the next 100 years or less. Higher temperatures,
flooding coastlines, more intense storms, not counting crop losses and deaths.
Trump  is staying this is a worst case claim, and there is no reason to be concerned.
Well the longer we wait to  fix the problem the more damage it will do, and may
become unfixible in the future.

President Trump wants respect, but he hasn't done anything to gain the respect
he wants. Respect doesn't come with a job, it has to be earned. Trump doesn't
seem to understand this. Any respect he had, he bought. Just like his friends.
If his money went away he would be a very lonely friendless man.

Trump is trying to say Mexico will stop migrants from crossing the boarder into
the united states, but Mexico says they have no such agreement with the U.S.
So time will tell. Perhaps Trump has offered Mexico a very big carrot to do this,
but I doubt if Mexico wants to take care of thousands of immigrants awaiting
to cross the boarder.

Russia attacks Ukraine warships within a shipping lane claiming Ukraine
was trespassing in Russian waters. This passage is considered a free
passage for international shipping, so it would seem Russia is testing
world resolve with it's criminal actions. Not standing up to this kind of
action by Russia could lead to war in the future. Especially if they are
allowed to get by with it. Past wars were usually proceeded by acts of
nations bullying others.

So far several nations have called this an illegal action by Russia, but so
far Trump hasn't said anything. There is a international meeting of nations
in the near future where Trump plans to meet with Putin. Time will tell if
Trump will sanction Russia for this act or not? It's unfortunate, but many
of Trumps supporters want the U.S. to stay out of international politics.
Dictators like Putin often test other nations to gain more power, and if
unopposed will keep pushing till there is a war that could involve the
U.S. like it or not.

There was trouble at the boarder with Mexico and California over
the weekend.  Hundreds of people tried to cross the boarder into
the U.S. , but the boarder guards turned them back. Tear gas was
used when bottles and rocks were thrown. No one knows who
actuallyh threw the rocks, but it's not likely womna and cildren did
it. Yet they were gassed as well.

Trump is claiming he will close the boarder with Mexico if this
continues. The interruption of commerce between our two countries
will cost thousands of jobs here in the U.S. So Trump would likely
catch heck if the boarder was closed for any lenght of time.

It wouldn't surprise me if Trump hird Mexicans to throw rocks and
bottles to allow an excuse to use tear gass on families. There isn't
any proof of this, but it's a good conspiracy theory. If you think
Trump is above this kind of thing. Just remember he has hired
people in the past to make him look good politically.

Sees people Trump hires lie, it makes me wonder if that is a job requirement. Do you
know how to lie? 

Does Trump plan to pardon thosese who ran his campign? If he does it may show him up
to be the lieing con artist he is. Anyone he pardons can still be called to testify before congress.
Once pardoned they can't claim 5th amendment protection. If they lie to congress they can
be sent to jail. Trump would have to pardon them again, and again if they continue to lie.
Perhaps at some point even Trump supporters would see the light.

Several GM plants are closing in January, putting almost 15 thousand workers out of
a job. Many of them likely voted for Trump. I wonder if they still plan to vote for him
again? After all Trump ran saying he would make more manufacturing jobs. GM is doing
this even though Trump saved them a huge amount in taxes. More proof big business
looks out for them selves and not the workers.
