Trumps offer to help with the fires that are destroying
the amazon jungle was nothing compared to what
is needed to help stop them. He might as well tossed
a cup of coffee on the fire.

After this and how much federal land have been opened by him
to big business he still tries to claim he is an environmentalist.
If it wasn't so sad, I would laugh. Hopefully we can undo
much of his environmental destruction when he is gone.

It seems the G7 was more about talking nice to  Trump
than work to help the  world economy. Trump is still trying
to tell the public that his tariffs only hurt China, and not
the buying public. Trump said he was sure China would
capitulate soon. Somehow I think the leader of China is
smarter than Trump, and the sooner Trump realizes this
the better.

Much was said about Iran, but Trump is still wanting them
to bend over, and accept his terms. The deal we had with
Iran was very good, but Trump hates Obama, and broke his
hard  fought treaty with Iran. So now we may end up with one
more nuclear power in the world. Because Trump wanted to
make Obama look bad.

Trump just lies on and on, even to people who know he isn't
being honest. They can only hope he doesn't wreck the
world before he leaves office.

The stock market bounces up and  down with every tweet
and speech Trump makes. At what point will investors feel
it's time to run before they loose their shirts? It's doubtful
that Trump will ever know.

Trump wants Russia back to the G7, and tried to say Obama
should not have kicked Putin out. When asked about the Crimea
 invasion, Trump changed the subject, and claimed he punished
Syria for gassing children. Even though his attack did little
more than damage a runway.

Trump makes claims of great plans, but never gives details about
them. That of course gives him an escape route when nothing
of consequence happens. I consider all his talk just bragging 
and lies until something really happens.

Some people would worry about telling lies, but Trump never
cares if his lies are proven to be lies. He just keeps telling them.
Then if one backfires enough he just tells another to cover
it up.

I really don't know why anyone would believe him on anything.
Especially if it might cost them money. Trump still tries to say he
is loosing money being president. It's just more of his lies. I hope
the economy isn't harmed by Trump, but people who voted for him
may wish they never heard of him in the end.

Trump is wanting to setup the next G7 at one of his resorts. Now
he wouldn't admit it's to make him and his family money. But
because he has the very best accommodations. Instead he should
try to help businesses other  than his own, but that wouldn't
help him and his wallet.

You can find out more at the following links. I don't have a
direct link to the Mueller Report, but You really should read
it. One of these sites below will have a link to it.

Nice series of informative posts, there.
But let me just nudge in a few comments on the undergoing Trump/Greenland/Denmark debate.

Trump has not made an offer to buy Greenland from the Swedish (as you mention in your first post.)
If Trump calls up PM Stefan Löfven, to put in an offer for Greenland, he will likely be met with uncomfortable silence and giggles.
Greenland is of course a part of Denmark. (Which you correctly quote in the following posts,) Not Sweden.

"Eric the Red" landed on Greenland in Ca 1000AD, which arguably is more than 500 years ago. Erik was from Norway, which was a part of Denmark until 1814. Thus, Greenland, Norway and Denmark share a very long history together. 

Regarding the actual sale

First: Regardless of how ambitious the offer, Denmark cannot legally sell Greenland. Period.
Greenland and its people are protected by the series of UN writs concerning indigenous people, written in the wake of WWII.
Legally, that piece of property is simply not for sale.

Trump and his followers are quick to quote how Denmark sold the Virgin Islands (and its people) to the US in 1917.
Denmark later agreed with President Truman to host the U.S. owned "Thule Base" in northern Greenland, during the 1950's.
From a political POV, It makes perfect sense to demonstrate how the U.S and Denmark have previously traded property to mutual benefit, and argue the recent Trump proposal is not - as PM Mette Frederikesen commented "Absurd!"
But times have changed since WWII, and indigenous people are protected from being trade items.
- At least within the U.N.

Second: In 2009, Denmark and Greenland formed the "self-governance agreement," which (among many other things) stipulate that Greenlanders are their own, self governing people. However, they politically share their landmass with the Danes. Which brings us to...
 
Third: Part of that same agreement states that the Greenlanders can go independent of Denmark, any day they decide they are ready to go solo. From that day onward, Greenland, its people and the entire landmass fully belongs to the Greenlanders.
However, currently Greenland receives an annual 600.000.000$ in financial support from Denmark, which evens out to
$1000 per capita, every month. So the temptation to stay affiliated with Denmark has so far remained strong.

Summing up: should Trump somehow manage to close the deal, it automatically comes with an expiry date.
And that expiry date is set by the Greenlanders themselves. Not a a great deal, Donald... it's sad... you're not gonna love it.

Okay Glycanthrope
Thanks for the clarification about Greenland and Trump.
 My posts are to inform more than to give Trump and
the GOP a hard time. I feel the public needs a place to
remind people about Trump and the GOP who
supports him.

I am an independence where I feels my country is being
harmed by a man who cares nothing for anyone but
himself, and a party who cares more about power and
money than the country they
want to represent.

Stay tuned, as I plan to keep posting till Trump is
removed. Either by impeachment or the voters.

Well put, Old Rabbit.  I understand what you are trying to accomplish here, and I fully agree with your sentiment.

My point in the above post was to clarify some of the legal aspects that tend to be overlooked during the current debate on
handling the ownership of Greenland.

It's my observation that most of the world simply shrugs off President Trump's ham-fisted approach, as yet another silly flight of fancy.
Yet, we Danes do feel concerned about the future of our Arctic brethren.

Greenland is undergoing a massive transition these years, due to global warming. While most of the world bemoans the
consequences of the melting ice, the Greenlanders themselves remain surprisingly content. The rising temperature and receding ice uncovers virgin soil that allows the Greenlanders to grow crops, in turn making themselves increasingly independent of imported goods.

Good for Greenland, yet it is a double-edged sword.

Greenland is a treasure trove of rare metals and minerals. For generations, Greenlanders have picked up precious stones, including emeralds, rubies and diamonds straight off the surface with their bare hands. They even have stipulated a law that allows anyone to freely harvest gems at their own discression. But with the receding ice borders, the country is quickly turning into any prospector's wet dream. Given the vast size of the country, the supply is almost limitless. This has caught the attention of - not only the US, but also Canada, China and Russia. All of which are making frantic bids on how to tap into this modern Klondike. Alarmingly, these are also countries that have a major impact on global warming. In a perverse turn of interest, global warming is thus turning Greenland into a get-rich-quick scheme for greedy investors. This in turn may put a damper on the efforts to stop global warming, if we continue to put the wrong people in charge.

Yes, though the audience here is small. It's young people
who have the most to loose if greed over takes the world.

It appears debate number three by the democrats will be
one night with ten candidates, instead of two nights. Those
who haven't made the grade are complaining. Well if after
months  of going after support hasn't made them at lease
2%, it's time to do something else. So stop with the sour
grapes and work to help defeat the madman in the white
house.

Trump is taking money from FIMA to help pay for boarder
legal problems he is having to deal with. So if we have
more disasters this year. What will people do when FIMA
runs out of money because of Trumps sticky fingers.

Attorney genera Barr is paying Trump 30,000 tax dollars
so he can have a holiday party at his Washington DC Hotel.
for those who work at the Department of Justice. Just more
of Barr's kissing up to Trump at tax payer expense.

Trump is wanting to use eminent domain laws  to clear
the way to build his wall. He is even telling those who
will build the wall they can break the law if they need
to, and promises to pardon them later. When Trump
ran for office he complained that eminent domain laws
were bad, and now he likes them.

The person who sits in the white house is
nothing but a disgusting individual. Today
he decided to have people who came here
for life saving medical treatment must now
leave. Not after their illness has been
cured, so they can just go home and die. How
 does this make our country great? These are
mostly  children. Not even immigrants, or any
threat to our country.  In the past Trump has
said he loves Children, but we can see it was a
filthy lie.

Just how bad does Trump have to get before he
is summarily removed. What shame does the people
of this country have to endure, before this
terrible person looses support as our president?

How can people who call them selves Christians
stand by and still support a man who acts more like
a creature of the devil than one of GOD? What
will they say to their maker when judgment day
arrives? Somehow I doubt the excuse they supported
Trump to help save the unborn will be enough.

The GOP stands up and claims they care about the
unborn. Then  once the unborn become children
they loose interest in them. In my state alone the
GOP Governor is taking children off medicate, even
though it will mean their death. Where is their
concern when it might not buy them votes?

Why is it the GOP wants to punish a doctor or the
clinic who performs the abortion, but not the woman
who wants one? The woman gets a pat on the head,
and is told to finish her pregnancy next time, even
though it was started by insets, or rape. The GOP
wants to say being pregnant is a choice made by
GOD, and not the woman.

Then I say leave it between GOD and the woman, and
not by politically driven laws.

What is Trump hiding when he doesn't want
his tax records seen by congress? Trump
claims he has done nothing wrong, and totally
innocent of everything. So as I say. What
is he afraid of? Could it be he lied about
his finances?

I kind of think when a man has to go to a
corrupt bank to borrow money, and likely has
a Russian oligarch cosigning his loan. Is likely
not wanting people to know. Especially if that
man is president of the united states, and wants
to be reelected.

Your audience here on Furtopia may be small,
but you certainly do not stand alone in your skepticism towards the Trump administration.

According to (yet another poll this week) (*)
54% voters would be completely unhappy / somewhat unhappy with Trump doing a second term
16% Don't care
29% Would be Happy / Very happy

(This was based on Ca 5000 voters in general -not just GOP supporters.)
But the numbers may suggest a growing desire for replacing Trump.

Now I may be biased (or lacking information because I'm observing from abroad), but it seems to me the democrats have the stronger hand at this moment, as Biden, Warren and Sanders have become household names -also outside the US. Over here, Sanders is the favorite candidate, hands down. (He has said many loving words about Denmark (**)  so... we love him right back. That's KARMA, baby.)

But ask anyone about Joe Walsh, and the chances are good they will start singing "Hotel California."
Bill Weld? John Kasich? Seems to me the GOP has some catching up to do.

Yes, the GOP and their cult leader Trump may get spanked
in 2020, but voters must turn out in big numbers to be
successful against them.

VP Joe Biden is still the democrat favorite to be nominated
to run for president in 2020. Yes it's still early with months
to go before the first primaries. In a way I kind of wish the
parties would  return to choosing candidates in private. That
way we wouldn't have to put up with almost a year of people
running for president. I think by the time we have the real
election, people are so tired they just want it to end.

I think all elections should be limited to 3 months from start
to ballot. Also campaigns should be paid with tax dollars. That
would help limit influence by big money. As is candidates have to
spend much of their time raising money instead of doing the
job they are elected to do.

Trump is still pushing the Space Force idea. This sounds
cool, but is a waste of money until we have craft that
can easily fly into space and back. Right now the Air
Force is handling it as well as technology allows.

Well it appears Trump is wanting to look good
for this hurricane. It may do a lot of damage
in his favorite state of Florida. So he wants to
keep those  voters happy. He will need them in
2020.  I have a hunch Trump will be staying at
the White House this Labor Day weekend. Of
course  knowing Trump he will likely be wanting
to play golf, and may sneak off to do so. If he does
he could end up looking like he doesn't care. Now
who would think that?  :P

As usual Trump wants everyone to think he is
perfect in every way. So he bragged that his
people did a great job in Puerto Rico this time
as well. Though the last time was a disaster.
Because he doesn't consider them true
American citizens, and would like to forget
about them.

The FBI director Trump fired because he wasn't
loyal to  him. Was found not guilty of releasing
classified documents. That's the memos the director
wrote about his discussions with Trump, a man who
wants to hide anything that might make him look bad.
No matter who it hurts.

Well as usual Trump and the GOP are up to no good
once more. Not only are they opening up Alaska to  oil
and gas exploring, they want to open Alaska's wilderness
to lumber, and mining operations as well.

Not only will  this destroy  a pristine environment many
rare species of animals depend on, it will pollute the
rivers that millions  of Salmon breed in. Salmon  that
many many people need  for food. Not counting the
damage to a large fishing industry. Also many people
who  live in Alaska will loose their way of life.

The loss of another large forest will deplete the worlds
ability to maintain life on this planet. According to  science
about 8% of the worlds oxygen is created in Alaska. Yes,
a small amount, but when you add it to the fires around
the world, and ocean pollution we loose more and more
breathable air, and it ads much to global warming as well.

Trump is trying to cut foreign aid around the world. This is
a bad idea. Oh I am sure Trump's supporters will cheer,
but this aid helps give people hope, otherwise countries
like Russia will move in and turn them against us. The
U S A depends on it's friends around the world for
national security, and many other  things we need
to survive. These ignorant acts Trump play's for votes
does serious harm to the country.

The media is making a big deal out of Joe Biden messing
up a story about a military man deserving of a medal.
This after Trump has lied and made mistakes over 12,000
times since taking office. I am sure Trump is pleased, and
will likely add to it.

Well Trump canceled his trip to Poland and sent his
butter wouldn't melt in his mouth BP instead. I guess
Trump felt he needed to put on a caring face since the
hurricane will affect his voters.

I wonder how those voters will feel if FIMA runs out of
money? Especially since Trump took 250 million out of
their budget the other day.

I think this business of kicking seriously ill children
out of the country, where they will likely die, was
either one of Trumps sick ideas or one of his sick
greedy underlings trying to make  points with him.

Otherwise I think the white house would have had an
excuse ready to give the press. As is they seem to have
been caught flat footed on the issue. So far I haven't
heard anything from the white house via the media.

The way this story is growing, Trump will have to explain
himself, or he will have the GOP leadership on his case. He
may feel he can ignore the democrats, and the media, but
if the GOP turns  on him he is in trouble.  If the current
Polling is accurate, Trump is in trouble anyway.

It seems the white women to supported Trump in 2016,
don't like how he is treating children and people in
general, and the polling shows they don't plan to 
vote for Trump again in 2020.

Trump is complaining that one of his loyal staff members
told the press things that embarrassed him and his family.
I think Trump is likely just over reacting as he hates any
leaks to the press about things he might say off hand.

Trump has a habit of leaking secrets to friends and possibly
to the enemies of our country. Because he likes to brag to
those that didn't respect him in the past.

Just as I figured, Trump couldn't stay in the White House
this weekend. He is off to Camp David so he can play golf.
When Trump ran for office, he said he would be working
all day every day, but so far he has been gone over 200
days to play golf, an stay at his resorts.  Costing tax
payers millions and millions of dollars. When Obama
was president. The GOP complained if he went to visit
his grandmother in Hawaii. Yet they never complain
about Trump and his waste of tax dollars.

I just wonder if those ranchers in Texas will stand still
while Trump grabs their land to build his wall? People
don't like the government grabbing their land for
any reason, much less for a wall many of them
don't like.

Texas has been marching ever closer where they
may flip to the democrats. This may just be the
finger that tips  them over. If it does, Trump best
pack his  toothbrush, because it will mean his
loss for sure.

In fact several southern states are moving away
from the GOP. Not just because of Trump, but
it's the changing population who doesn't like
GOP cheats and policies.

The GOP along with the Evangelical leaders are
doing all they can to deceive white people so they
won't follow the democrats. They know if the people
put the democrats in power, their power and corruption
will be at an end.

It's sad how the Evangelical leadership deceives
their followers with misleading claims. It's been
shown that some of their leaders spend millions
for personal homes, perks, large aircraft, and
vacations.  All from monies taken from donations.

Trump made a speech today bragging on FIMA and how
much he has worked to help those affected by disasters
like hurricanes. Ye there are still people in Florida and
Texas who are still waiting for promised help from
FIMA on damage from the last hurricanes. This doesn't
even count Puerto Rico, who have thousands of American
citizens with homes that only have tarps for roofs.

Trump continues to lie about the economy, and about
China. He hides the fact that farmers are going bankrupt
due to his policies and tariffs, not counting the small
businesses  that are failing as well. 

The average American will  soon see higher prices at Walmart
and other discount stores  due to Trumps economic war with
China. He claims we don't  need  more background checks for
guns. Even though people  can go to a gun show and buy one
if you have the money and a smile.

Trump alone isn't causing the division in our country.
People fear others who look or act different. It has been
known for centuries that people have this fear. This is
why people put scary faces on war masks, and war
ships.

Trump and others of the far right use fear to convince
others to join their cause. They claim people of color
are going to take over the country. They claim gays
will destroy the morality of our youth. The trouble is
it's easy to talk people into believing these things,
especially when the far right uses religion to support
their ideas.

The GOP has for years used gun ownership to get elected.
The NRA, which is mostly a puppet of the gun industry,
works hard to increase sales of guns, by stopping new
laws that might restrict their purchase.

Each time the democrats try to make laws that hold
people responsible for their firearms, the GOP, with the
NRA pushing them, cry the democrats are wanting to
take your guns. 

Trump and the GOP are saying gun violence is due to
people with mental illness. Then why did they pass a law
that allows people with mental illness to buy guns. They
did this right after Trump took office, and he signed it into
law. I wish the media would question GOP members more
on this bit of hypocrisy.

We have another shooting, this time from a man on the
run from law enforcement. 7 dead and 20 some injured. I
myself used to feel if the public was armed, they could
defend against mass shooters. The facts are almost none
of these shooters are stopped by the public.

I  think most of us would have a hard time actually shooting
another person. Also any hesitation would likely get you shot
by the shooter.

I am not against firearm ownership, but I fear we are being
forced to pass laws to restrict ownership of them. Perhaps
to license people as we do for driving a motor vehicle. To
make them responsible for their firearm and it's use. Even
to require them to have liability insurance. Though I hate
to make big insurance more money.

None of these things will stop all violence caused by firearms,
but it has been shown to reduce violence in states where they
place limits on them.

I know some people feel they need a military style semiautomatic 
like the AR15, but if the government collapses, or we are
invaded. Most people wouldn't have enough ammunition
to last long, then it would just be a high priced door stop. 
And if it broke, few could get one fixed.
 
I fear if we don't try to put responsible limits on firearms
and their ownership. One day if not already will have
people walking the streets ready to  shoot anyone who they
feel are acting suspicious. To shoot someone who insults
them. This wild west mentality has to be stopped or we
will end up with a dog eat dog society, where no one
will be safe. Already the police are likely to shoot first
and question later. Especially if they feel they are up
against a person of violent intentions.

Well here it is another Labor Day. I just wish president Trump
would do more than brag and lie about how much he is doing
for the country. I know many of his supporters who don't live
at the boarder with Mexico think Trump is doing a good job
to stop immigration. Trump calls them anything but human,
most of them are just people wanting a better life for their
children. Not a free ride like Trump and the GOP wants to
claim.

Immigrants down through the history of our country have
been people looking to make a better life for themselves
and their children. This is how our country has become the
great nation it is. Otherwise if the immigrants had been
looking for a free ride we would be a third world
republic with nothing but thieves, and beggars in
the streets.

The far right plays on peoples fears, by calling immigrants
a threat, because they don't want diversity in this country.
They want it as a haven for white rich men. Then people of
color to be a working class they can exploit.

This desire will not  last, though they may hold power for a
time. They will loose in the end. All they will accomplish is to
cause pain and suffering for the masses, and many of those
who blindly support them.

Trump went to the FIMA offices in Washington DC for a photo
op yesterday. Trying to show how much he cares about those
in the path of the hurricane. If he really cares, how  come
people are still waiting for help after the last hurricane? Not
just Puerto Rico, but in Florida and Texas too.

The GOP and Trump continue to support people   who want
guns for protection. If guns were so good for protection
Texas should be the safest state in the nation. Because
they have the greatest number of firearms. Yet inn the
last two mass shootings, the public had to wait for the
police to stop the shooter. Using a firearm for protection
takes more than a finger to use it. It takes a lot of training,
and even then success isn't guarantee. Just look how many
police were shot trying to  stop the killer.

Untrained people will often harm themselves or family
instead of the attacker. Teachers who wish to carry
guns to protect kids in schools, are required to  have
at least 100 hours of training.

Those in the military go through a  lot of training,
they learn how to take care of the weapon, and
how to safely use it. Then only get ammunition
when they need it. Unlike walking into a gun
store to buy one like the public does, where they
may never had one before. Much less used one.

It's time we require training, and proper health to
have a firearm. Just as we do for the safe  operation
of motor vehicles. Both of which are dangerous in
the wrong hands.

Trump spent most of the weekend playing golf and tweeting
about the hurricane and the news media. He tried to say this
hurricane was the first F5 that has hit the mainland in many
years. Yet we have had 3 since he has been in office. Just
more lies, or rants by a delusional old man who suffers from
memory loss.

The vice president stopped in Ireland where he spent time at a resort
 owned by Trump. He could have spent the night on the plane. Air
Force 2  which has very nice accommodations. By stopping there
he then had to  fly 150 miles to Dublin to speak to the prime
minister. It was Trump who wanted him to stay at his golf resort
so he could charge the U S government for the VP's stay.

This is just more of Trumps way of making money by being
president. Of course he claims he is loosing money to justify
the money grubbing actions he has played since taking office.
Over this time he has made millions from the government and
foreign dignitaries. All this from a man who claims to be a multi
billionaire. If he is so rich why charge the government anything?
Seems unpatriotic to me.
 
Moscow Mitch, the leader of the senate  still claims he won't
try to pass any bill the president doesn't want to sign. It seems
he has forgotten that what the president wants is irrelevant.
If Trump doesn't like a bill he can veto it. It's not the senates
leaders responsibility to protect Trump by vetoing bills for him.

Trump is taking billions from the military to fund
his wall with Mexico. A wall that was supposed to
be paid for by Mexico. So the soldiers Trump claims
to support will have to live without funds needed
for repairs on things Trump wants to leave undone.

Will the economy hold with Trump placing tariffs
on China and others? Already the world economy
is slowing. Our economy may not slip into an actual
recession, but virtually stand still. If unemployment
starts to grow, Trump will have a hard time claiming
The economy is doing great. The stock market with
low interest rates will do good for a while, but not
for long. Especially if business profits begin to drop.

Trump is going to have a hard time being reelected
even with a good economy. Even with huge sums of
money to spend on his campaign. The public is likely
to turn against him. He only squeaked in last time, so
any loss of support will mean his end.

Now that the hurricane has left the Bahama Islands
rescue efforts are in process. So far the death toll is
at 7, but could be more as searches continue. It
it good we are helping these people. I wonder
why Trump isn't asking who will pay? Probably
due to the fact the Bahamas are the playground
of the rich. Unlike Puerto Rico who though citizens
of the U S, are looked down on by Trump.

It will take a long time to repair the damage. Many
of the smaller Islands are more like big sand bars
than solid ground. After 2 days of 200 mph winds
and heavy waves, some of them no longer exist.
It will likely take help from several countries to do
the job.

After public outrage spread  across the  nation
The Trump administration backs down from removing
kids who are receiving life saving treatment, that was
promised by our country. . Many could not believe
even Trump could  be so cruel as to do such a thing.

This back down from removing kids who need life
saving treatment, may only be temporary. As they
still want to review their need with a lot of
bureaucracy. Which could be used to quietly
removed them anyway.

This is more proof that even though Trump claims
to care about kids, is nothing but a filthy lie.
He is ready to remove anyone, no matter what
their need is. I would compare Trump to a slimy
worm, but that would be demeaning to the poor
creature. .

Trump continues trying to block all legal
proceedings against him. I wish the democrats
would get tough, and arrest these individuals
who refuse to follow the law. Then let Trump go
to court in their behalf. Instead of the other
way around. Even if Trump tried to pardon them
congress could keep arresting them, requiring
Trump to pardon them again and again.

It's likely the democrats want to look like they
are trying to work with Trump, but he just uses
anyone who doesn't stand up to him.

The democrats are far from being helpful to
people who are needy. They and the GOP do
little to help people work their way out of poverty.
Instead they setup laws that punish the poor each
time they try to help them selves. I hope there
will be a change as time goes on. I don't
expect the GOP to change, but if we can
get more progressive people in office
the people can have a more fruitful life.
One that isn't just for the richest Americans.

The NRA is bad mouthing Walmart, claiming
they are punishing law abiding citizens by
not selling firearms and the ammunition
people want. It isn't just Walmart, other
outlets of firearms are doing much the
same. They know the majority of the
public isn't in favor of assault weapons,

Perhaps a compromise where people
could own such weapons as long as
they met federal guidelines. Much
as they do for fully automatic weapons,
and other weapons of war.

Trump has gone to court to get permission to cut funding
for schools, and day care for the children of our soldiers.
This doesn't count other needed repairs for military facilities.
All to get money for a wall that will never be built. If built it
would take a decade or more, and would need  constant
surveillance and repair.  All because Trump thinks it will help
him to be reelected.

Trump falsified a weather forecast. Claiming Alabama was
in the path of the hurricane. This is against the law, but the
Attorney General who is one of Trumps puppets, says the
president can do no wrong. 

It's possible Trump heard someone say if the hurricane hit
southern Florida it might pass into the gulf of Mexico. Trump
just can't admit he is ever wrong about anything. He could
say someone told him this, but no he has to be right, even
acting like a weather forecaster, which he isn't.  This nonsense
by Trump, caused the U S weather bureau to come out for the
first time ever against a president, to say Trump was wrong.

Also Trump claimed a GOP senator from North Carolina asked
for an emergency declaration. Only the Governor can ask
for such declaration, not a senator. Another lie involving
a emergency  declaration. Trump cares nothing for others
unless it serves himself.

Trump and his cronies lie continuously. It makes no
difference who it hurts. Even if cost lives, and money.
Some of them after selling out our country, go to work
for foreign companies that they helped to cost tax payers
money.

According to leaks from the White House. When Trump
claimed he got phone calls from China, asking to start
trade talks. Was a lie, because Trump wanted to boost
the stock market. This is against the law. Anyone trying to
manipulate the stock market is breaking federal laws.

Trump and the GOP are involved in corruption all through
the government. Even in states. It's all about power and
money. Yes democrats have been guilty of this in the past,
but nothing like the GOP.

When Trump leaves office he will likely be charged with
several crimes. I am sure he will hire a number of lawyers
trying to keep him out of jail.  I hope prosecutors stand
strong, because Trump will do all he can to drag out
court processes.

I really think Trump will leave the country on January
19, 2021 if he looses. Then let his  lawyers work to
stay any conviction.

The GOP wants to call the democrats socialists,
but the GOP isn't against socialism for big
business, only for the common man. Besides
the kind of  socialism the democrats are
proposing, is for the common good, Not to
end the free market or capitalism. Many countries
around the world have systems of government that
works very well with social programs, along with
a free market and capitalism. Yes the rich
wouldn't be quite as rich, but people can still
become very rich, even to be billionaires.

The problem is, money is like a drug, the more
you have the more you want. Only society can
put limits on the very rich, because most of
them never would. Yes many do give large
sums to charities, but in many cases they
looking for tax breaks, or hoping for a path
to heaven, fearing the flames of Hades.

Trump claims he won't tell our enemies what he plans to do,
yet he tells our opponents in Syria, and Afghanistan that
we are planning to leave. So why would they agree to
do anything knowing we will soon be gone. Trump ran
saying he would get us out of these wars, but so far
we are still there. The people there will receive terrible
treatment once we leave,  especially women, but I
doubt if Trump really cares.

It appears Trump may support a minimum of gun legislation.
Minimal red flag laws, and possibly background checks to
include gun shows, but not one on one gun sales or trading.

Only time will tell. I am sure the NRA will be working to stop
any new controls on gun ownership. Trump got 30 million from
the NRA in 2016, so I am sure he wants more of their help this
time too.

I have a hunch many people don't know that our government
required registration of rifles and hand guns used for war
at the beginning of the country. They didn't want bands of
people out looking for revenge, much less turning against
the government. At our countries beginning there were
several groups who didn't necessarily approve of the
new federal government.

People could have their firearms for hunting and self
defense, but not for uncontrolled militias. So if a renegade 
group started trouble using registered guns they could
be more easily rounded up. Not a perfect solution, but
nothing ever is.

President Putin of Russia said he offered to  sell the U S one
of his nuclear powered cruise missiles. He didn't say wither
Trump wanted  to buy any or not. This is rather interesting
since one of their tests went sour, and has spread radiation
over part of Russia. These nuclear powered missiles aren't
the new idea Putin claims them to be. The U S looked at
using nuclear powered missiles in the 1960's, and decided
they were too dangerous to be useful. It appears they were
right, even if Putin doesn't want to admit it. 

Trump's plans to  take monies from the military is catching
a lot of flack. These monies were to  be used to deter Russia
from making any invasion of NATO countries. It also  stops
repairs to needed infrastructure for our soldiers. Since
this is a money grab by Trump, the courts will have to agree
with Trump, before any monies can be diverted to save
the wall Mexico is supposed to pay for. Not the military, he
claims he wanted to  make better. Just another lie that will
hurt jobs in 23 states.

Just more proof Trump will do anything he feels will
help him win another term. No matter who it hurts. Even
GOP congress men and women will likely loose their seats
due to his dumb ideas. He claims the wall is being built,
but all that's being done is repairs and replacing old
barriers. Parts that he will likely stand in front of for
campaign photos. Congress has given him billions
already for boarder protection, but little has been
spent. We can only wonder what Trump has done
with it. It's odd he comes up with billions to subsidize
farmers, so why not use some of that instead? They
seem to think his wall is a great idea, so they shouldn't
fuss about it.

Some want to say Joe Biden is too old and possibly having memory
problems. Well look at Trump. He will be in his mid 70's if reelected.
Also he is constantly making mistakes about facts. So if anyone has
a mental issue it's Trump.

Let's wait and let the primaries decide who is running, then we can
decide who should get our vote.

It appears our president is continuing to use his powers to enrich himself
and his family. Turns out Trump is apparently requiring military flights to
land for refueling at an airport near his golf resort in Scotland. Then
making the crews spend the nights there. So he can charge tax payers
for their lodging. Also the fuel sales makes it possible for the small airport
to remain open. If closed his resort would suffer greatly. This is just one
location, who knows  how much Trump is manipulating government
spending for his own benefit. He might even be profiting from fuel sales
for all we know.

For some reason the military is trying to hide this activity. Either by Trump's
orders, or some weird devotion they think is owned to the president. The
Commander in Chief of the military. Congress oversight is looking into this,
but so far the military is stalling. This week the committee may have to
subpoena those responsible.

Apparently the weather bureau in Alabama was told to change it's statement
that the hurricane wasn't a threat to Alabama, by the federal weather
service. So it would support Trump's lies. So now when you get a weather
forecast, it will be according to Trump, and not what it really is. Of course if
you really get hit by a hurricane, Trump will blame the weather bureau instead.

It seems almost all government workers, and the GOP are scared to oppose
Trump, no matter what his lies represent. The GOP used to claim they were
for truth, justest,  and the American way, but that is gone. The GOP is no
longer republicans, but  Trumpians.  A cultist party of Trump. I sometimes
feel they would walk off a  cliff if their Supreme master Trump, commanded
them to do so. 

If he gets another 4 years, I think they will be on their knees to  him, with
demands that he is made president permanently. They   don't question what
he does. When Trump said don't believe anyone but me. They might as well
have said "Yes Master". Because that's what they do.

Trump calls the news media the enemy of the people. In reality it's the enemy
of Trump, and his lies. I am not saying the media is always fully truthful, but
without them Trump and his cronies would be stealing everything, including
the kitchen sink if it had some value.

If the democrats do take power in 2020, they must take powers from the
office of the president. To keep a future president from trying to follow
Trump's example.  Also if the democrats can take two thirds of the states,
we should have a constitutional convention. To get rid of corruption by a
those wanting to take overwhelming power. To get rid of gerrymandering,
to get rid of political PAC's. Groups run by the super rich trying to take
political control of the country. To expand the supreme court to 12, and
if a justice shows to be partisan, remove them.  Above all set term limits
on all elected officials. When people make a career out of law making it
leads to  corruption. Last if not lease get rid of the electoral process, this
antiquated system that was designed to prevent uneducated people from
electing a president should be done away with.

Some would  say all this is a pipe dream, but all it takes is people taking
enough interest in our country to make it better for us all,and not just for
the riches of us. Get out and vote, not just for yourself, but for the
good of the country. Vote to get rid of corrupt politicians. They are just
criminals who should be in prison  instead of congress. They will try to
fool you, but look at their record not their words.

It's too bad those in the GOP don't have the backbone to stand
up to Trump. My hats off to those in the British parliament who are
standing up to a prime minister who is a Trump wannabe.

Trump wants to, or already has sat down with the very people
who were responsible for the 911 attack on New York. If Obama
had  done this, the GOP would have went nuts.  Or if any democrat,
as far as that goes. Our policy is to never talk to terrorists. So
where is the GOP when our president deals with murderers.

Trump seems to think he can do foreign policy by twitter. This
will never work, because people can't publicly agree to terms
their supporters don't agree with, or understand. Agreements
with foreign countries have to be done behind closed doors. Or
nothing will be done, unless one side totally capitulates.
Something no serious leader would ever do.

Trump seems  to think he can make deals with his bullying,
and if that doesn't work he kisses up to them. Just like his
claims  he and the North Korean leader are in love.  Rather
disgusting, considering what that leader does to his people.

If Trump is in love, does that mean Trump is okay with north
Korea continuing to  build H bombs? Or fire off short range
missiles? Or even to launch a submarine that can fire nuclear
tipped missiles? It would seem so, as when asked, Trump
doesn't seem to care.

Trump wants to claim that he has improved relations
with North Korea. When in fact it is just the opposite.
The North Korean leader wants the U S out of south
Korea, and nothing Trump has done is changing him.

We should leave Afghanistan, but if we leave it to a government
who will capitulate to terrorist control, we should never have
went in the first place. Because it will become a bastion for
terrorist groups who will treat their populations the save
way ISIS did to Iraq. In fact ISIS is already there.

I think these terrorist groups use Islam trying to justify their
desire to treat others any way they like. Especially women. While
it is true people are easier to rule using religion, but for the
abuse of women, it's nothing but an excuse.

Trump and the GOP are trying to prevent anyone from running
against him in a primary. So what are they afraid of? Or is it
Trump that  fears or hates any opposition to his reelection,
especially from  members  of the GOP.

The one thing Trump hates is having to debate his policies or lack
of, with any serious debater. This is why he never has town hall
style meetings. He doesn't want to answer to the public. He only
wants to preach to them.

A lot of people in the Bahamas say they would like to
come to the U S as they have nothing left. I wonder if
Trump will welcome them, or not? Perhaps those who
have rich friends hear and have white skin, but I doubt
he will otherwise. At least for long.

Well summer vacation for congress is over. One of several
they have each year. Will the democrats stop pussyfooting
around and go after Trump and his cronies, or not? They
got a majority in the house of representatives so they could.
Yes Moscow Mitch is still trying to protect Trump, but GOP
senators will have to explain why they did so little, when
they run in 2020, even Moscow Mitch.

It's time we hold our law makers accountable. The reason
Trump can get by with his criminal activities is because
congress doesn't want to do the hard jobs. They want
to hand it off to the president, or the courts. Otherwise
Trump couldn't do much other than play golf, and tweet
tweet tweet, in the White House.

Here is an update on Trumps meeting with the supporters of
terrorists in Afghanistan. Turns out he cancelled the meeting
scheduled for Camp David. Claiming it was cancelled due to
an soldier being killed. If this was the  reason, why have a
meeting in the first place? They  have been killing our people
for years. I think Trump knew the meeting plan was going
bad, and he wanted a way to save face. We know Trump
never admits  failure, so he blames others.

It would be great if a deal can be struck to get all the
troops out of the middle east. Trump isn't smart enough
to do it. Much better men have failed. We either have
to just walk away, or spend years trying to do a deal
that isn't going to  make either side happy.

Trump invited police officers to the White House. Officers
who risked their lives to stop very dangerous killers. Personally
they should  have refused Trump request as  it is nothing but
a political show, a show where Trump is trying to prove he cares.
It is sad  such brave honorable people have to  accept medals
of honor from a man who has no honor at all. I think I would
have told Trump to just mail the medal to me.

It is 911 once more as  the U S A remembers the attack
on our country. An attack, much like Pearl Harbor will
live in memorial.

Today Trump, our shameless president made a long winded speech,
where he lied about how much he cares for those who suffered, and
due to diseases from the attempted rescue, and clean up. While standing
at the memorial of the attack there in New York, Trump lied about
how much he tried  to help after the attack. The first responders know
who was  there, and Trump wasn't.

Trump bragged  about the bill he signed, giving permanent aid to  those
affected, when he had nothing to do with it. In fact the first responders   
themselves had to fight to get congress to even consider the bill. Over
the years they had to beg for help and for the renewal of a bill the GOP
begrudgingly  passed, then only for a few years. Finally this time it was
made good for the lifetimes of those affected. Not pushed by the GOP, 
until they realized it would cost them too many votes to oppose.

Though many of those responsible have been killed or punished,
we after 18 years are still trying to finish our response to this
attack.

Presidents come and go, but the war goes on. Neither party
wanting to do what it takes to end the war. I really don't think
we are going to end it by telling the bad guys we are going
to leave even if they don't make a deal. They have to 
think they themselves will be destroyed. But when a country
like Pakistan gives them aid and shelter, it will be an endless
war. I am sure the leaders of Pakistan fear if they
don't, they too will suffer reprisals. Unless we can
get cooperation from surrounding countries, I  fear
we may have to walk away in the end.

Another  debate by the democrat candidates is
on for tonight if I am not mistaken. This time
there will only be one, with 10 on stage. Still
too many, but will likely diminish by the time
the first primary is held.

Trump is still trying to blame the news media
on his weird claim that Alabama was in the path
of a hurricane. For days Trump couldn't let it go.
He just has to be seen as right about everything,
no  matter who he hurts. He doesn't seem to
understand it's his own fault these stories 
last for days.

Trump is being true to form in that he has
decided to not let refuges from the Bahamas
to stay in the U S, till they can return to their
island home. Even to be allowed a  short stay,
they have to get permission at the U S embassy
in the Bahama's first. Though  proper, with
thousands needing relief many  could die while
waiting for a visa. Trump is using  his tired old
excuse that he is protecting  Americans  from
criminals. I suppose there would be some,
but I think Americans have more to fear from
home grown right wing terrorists than anyone
else.

The GOP leadership is closing primaries across
the country, trying to  prevent any other
GOP member from running against Trump. They
are even hiding data that shows how vulnerable
Trump is in these states. I imagine Trump is
behind this, because he fears having fellow
republicans talking against him, that might
help turn people toward a democrat.

There was a hearing yesterday about the removal
of seriously ill people who were invited  to this
country for life saving treatment. The GOP
members did their best to say it is all a hoax.
Even though two of these people were at the
hearing. One of which had trouble speaking
due to his lung condition.

The shameless GOP puppets of Trump invited
a commentator from Fox News who sat next to
these sick young people and ignored them, 
while claiming they didn't exist.

Just how far will GOP members go to protect
Trump. A man who has no shame. They should
be ashamed to show their face in public,
much less run for reelection.

Trump stands at his rally's and tells filthy lies,
or say anything to get cheers from the crowd.
The truth is not in him, and it appears those
GOP members who fear Trump will lie as
well.

I used to be a republican, but no more, I
will never vote for anyone who associates
with the leaders of his disgusting party of
Trump. Because it has nothing to do with
making this country great, nay it drags us
down in shame. while Trump's only interest is
making all the money he can, and the GOP
is only interested inn making billionaires
richer.

Trump and Moscow Mitch are continuing to
put right wing judges on federal courts. And
yesterday a hearing was held about one who has
a history of opposing immigration, because he
believes this country should only be white, and
Christian. Even the GOP senators were asking
this disgusting person hard questions. So we
can hope he fails this test. Other wise we
could have a hard right judge just below
the supreme court.

Yes many people agree with Trump and his
treatment of immigrants, but they are in a
minority. Many wish to return to what they
think is the good old days. Days when people
of color knew their place in society. When Gays
where hiding in closets. and Latinos were called
wet backs, and women had to depend on men.

Though this may look inviting to many people,
it will lead this country to ruin. We have to accept
people for who they are. As long as they do no
harm we should accept them. Forcing them to be
something they are not will lead to disruption of
our society. Already our prisons are filled with
people who should be working, not a burden
on society. Forcing people to obey laws against
their natural needs will just increase the prison
population, which is already too large. and
dis proportionally  with minorities.

Prisons in this country are privately run, this is
nothing but a way to make bad people rich.
People who care little for anything but the dollar.
So those in prisons are treated with little respect.
Just with dollar signs over their heads. Jail has little
to do with reforming those who turned to  crime.
Instead we should be treating these people with
understanding. Only those who pose a danger
to society should be imprisoned. The rest should
be helped by society to be productive citizens.
For what it costs to  keep someone in prison
they could be sent to college.

The debate went from health care to gun controls. Also on immigrants.
Personally I think they were fussing to much with each other. The
democrats must work to  protect health care, and  lower drug costs.

The GOP only want to turn everything over to big business, and
big business just wants to make all the money they can. NO
matter  who it hurts. Big business doesn't want free enterprise
as they lobby congress to get rid of  small business competition.
Competition that would lower profits they want  to increase.
Because higher profits increases the value of their stock, and
higher stock value makes millions for the owners.

The law suits against Trump over his making money from foreign
governments took a step forward yesterday. An appeals court
reversed a decision against Trump, by business owners who said
they lost business due to Trump using the office of president to
take their customers away. Since the constitution doesn't allow a
president to  make money from foreign governments, I would think
it would be an easy win for the business owners. But Trump has
put a bunch of lawyers on the case trying to win,  because he
doesn't care if the business owners loose money or not.  As in the
past, Trump uses his money to drag cases out till his  opponents 
either go broke or give up.

As I figured Trump told an audience the democrats will take your
guns. This is a tired old claim by the GOP for years. They use the
second amendment to  buy votes. The GOP leadership or Trump
don't care how many people die due to oversized magazines and
assault rifles.  Just as long as they can hold power. 

One of the  democrat candidates said we may need to take assault
rifles away from people. So Trump makes out like it's all of the guns.
Personally I think it should be more about large magazines than guns.
Because there are a lot of firearms that use magazines.

I find it hard to understand why any person of color would
support Trump, much less the GOP.  The GOP and Trump
treats them like so much trash,  especially Trump. Look at
immigrants.  Trump and the GOP want to keep all immigrants
of  color out of the country. Especially Latinos.

Trump was crying that the democrats and the news media were
the cause of him not fulfilling his campaign promises. If Trump
would Keep his big mouth shut, tell the truth, instead of trying
to cover up his ignorance,  stay off the telephone, get rid of his
twitter account, TV, and stop   worrying about what the media
and others think about him. He  would have plenty of  time to
do  the work he promised he  would do.

It's the above acts that Trump is unable to change, that causes
all of his troubles. Watching TV to learn facts is never a good idea.
the media and talking heads often make mistakes, and some
twist the truth to fit what they want, or just lie. No president
should use television news reports to learn anything. Trump
won't listen, to people who really know the facts, especially
if the facts don't agree with what he wants to believe.

Trump has spent his whole life learning how to lie, apparently
because he thinks  it's the only way to succeed. Since this
Con Artist way of thinking never works well, Trump is failing
to do the job he lied saying he wanted to do. Because he really
didn't think he would ever win, so he is just using the job as
president to fill his pockets with money, and to be the big shot
he always wanted to be.

The news media loves controversy. If it doesn't show up they work
to create it where little exists.  The last debate was controversial, but
it wasn't as bad as the media wants to  say. Even though it's
early yet, some of the candidates feel they must make a lot
of noise, or be lost in the pack.

Trumps hired fixer our Attorney general, is up to his dirty tricks again.
He is refusing to hand over grand jury information requested by the
house judicial committee. Information pursuant to an impeachment
investigation. Fixer Barr and Trump want the democrats to declare
they will send article's of impeachment to the senate. Because Trump
feels when the GOP controlled senate refuses to remove him, he can
go to his supporters and say "I was declared innocent".

Trump and the GOP think this will cause the democrats to loose
elections across the country, and perhaps even the White house. That
is their hope anyway. It is sad that the GOP cares so little for the majority
of the people, they are willing to  do anything to keep power. To be fair
they apparently feel they are only wishing to  save our country from
people who wish to bankrupt the country with socialism. While it is true
overzealous social programs could be damaging to the economy, So far
all I have seen from the democrats is to ask every citizen to pay their
fair share. Including the super rich, people who hide much of their
money from the IRS directly, or by using rules made by the GOP to
save them from taxes they should pay otherwise.

Money from honest taxation would be more than enough to cover the
social programs proposed by the candidates. With enough left to reduce
the national debt. A debt that Trump has increased by 2 Trillion dollars.
So I wonder why his supporters aren't giving him grief for his promise to
reduce the national debt instead of increasing it.

This back and forth control by each party, is more harmful than
social programs. The GOP puts us in debt with big tax cuts, then
the democrats have to raise taxes to lower deficits. The GOP wants 
to blame social programs for deficits, and when regaining power with
promises of tax cuts, do it all over again with more tax cuts.

They want to  claim the tax cuts will create  jobs, and money saved
with same cuts will  be passed along to workers in pay raises. This
idea of trickle down economics was started during the Reagan
administration. This was touted as to help the middle class, but
in reality it was designed to make rich people richer. Up to that
time taxes though not that helpful to  the rich, didn't hurt them
with all the tax shelters built into the tax system, many rich people
paid little if any tax. Prior to the Reagan years and trickle down
economics, the middle class was growing, since then it has been
staying the same, if not smaller. The rich however, are getting
richer, and over the years have gone from multi millionaires to
billionaires. A sum so vast, most people would have a hard
time spending it all. Even at a couple million dollars a month.

If the people don't stand up to this policy of greed our country will
go down. The rich will suffer little while everyone else will loose most
if not everything. Countries like China could move in with the demand
of payment. They have bought trillions of dollars in U S bonds to pay
for the illicit policies of our politicians, mostly by the GOP. Already much
of what we use is made in China or the far east. Much of the medicines we
use are made in China, or their ingredients. If we don't change this they
would only need to  stop sending us this medicine and millions would
suffer and die before it could be replaced.

Currently the public sits back depending on our politicians to take
care of things that keep us alive. If they screw it up, we are in trouble.
This is the big reason Trump needs to go. He has no interest in anything
but himself, and the GOP just follows him like a  puppy dog looking
for a bone, and a pat on the head.

Trump and the GOP cry the democrats are socialists. Yet the GOP
hands out billions in subsidies to big business. Subsidies is the
same thing as socialism. Just by a different name. They don't
care if someone starves, or a kid dies from an illness, just as
long as their big business allies are fine.

I don't think all GOP members feel this way, Many have no
plans to  run for reelection in 2020. Apparently not wanting to
run with the dirty policies of Trump following them. Much less
having to defend him.

Trump and his attorney general are blocking all attempts to get
information about himself, and his actions. Trump hired Barr
to do what his previous attorney general would not do. To be
his lawyer and personal prosecutor. Barr like all of Trumps
picks stay loyal to him, or he will remove them to fine someone
who will be loyal to him and not the laws of the country.

Any person who is elected for president, must stand up for the
constitution and the laws we all must obey. If they don't the
constitution requires impeachment, because a person while
in office is immune to prosecution. So impeachment is the only
way to remove a criminal from the office of president.

Trump puts our intelligence community at risk every time he
talks to countries that wish our demise. Countries like Russia,
and China. These countries will do anything it takes to  gain
power, economic or militarily. Trump has show he has no control
over his ego, virtually a man who thinks he should be king of
the world. History has shown, those who think of themselves
smarter than anyone else, lack the intelligence to know
otherwise. A person like this is a danger to themselves
and those who follow them.

The democrats in congress need to  get tough with Trump
or he could end up with another term in office. Trump
will do anything to win. The democrats should go after people
who fail to show up to testify. Not just with a subpoena, but
with handcuffs. Go to  court after if need be, But these
people need to find out Trump may not be able to, or even
want to protect them. I think the public would support this
type of action by the democrats. They need not worry about
those who support Trump. They won't support the democrats
anyway.

The last judge Trump put on the supreme court has more
accusations of sexual misconduct, among other transgressions
where he lied to the senate.  Even though this discussing
person should be impeached, I doubt the GOP will ever vote
to remove him. They want a conservative  majority on the
supreme court, and they don't care if one of the justices
should be in jail instead. This man is only there because
Trump wanted him there as a fixer, and should be removed.

It is sad how many people support Trump and his cruelty. He
reaches out to those who feel the rest of the world is out to 
get us. Seemingly to know it's they  who will agree with him.
Not for the the good of the country,  but for himself. We all have
our darker side, but most do not allow  it to control us. Not
like those who kill others in the name of  Trump, and his
policies. I  think most of those who support  Trump are
misguided. Just like those who don't understand  the needs
of LGBTQ. They listen to those who use religion, and fake
facts to  gain power and money. People who think their needs
should be above all others. No matter who it hurts.

Though the GOP and Trump continue to claim
humanity isn't causing climate change. Northern
lands are loosing more ice and snow. The ocean
over the north pole is becoming more ice free
as well. And soon will have countries like Russia
making territorial claims on rights to search for
resources there. The U S doesn't have the same
capability as Russia does in the Arctic, so conflicts
could arrive.

During his campaign Trump claimed he would
work to increase factory jobs. So with businesses
moving jobs to Mexico, and GM closing factories.
Will Trump  put pressure on GM management to
turn around? Or was it just campaign rhetoric. 
I think Trump  will claim it was his work if GM
backs off, even if it was due to Union pressure
instead.

Unions should not look to the GOP, because Trump
and the GOP are historically against Unions. If you
think not, just look at how the GOP works to pass
right to work laws across the country.

Trump told the justice department they need to
protect justest Brett Kavanaugh. We should be
asking why would Trump tell the justice department
to protect anyone? Could it be because this man 
promised Trump he would be loyal by not making
any judgments that would go against him? Some
might feel no justice would make such a promise,
but this man has a reported history of not being
honest,  and is accused of being a drunken womanizer.
I think he knew he would never be nominated again
with his personal history, and this was his only
chance.

Why did Trump work so hard to get this man on
the supreme court? Why did he limit the investigation
of Kavanaugh during his senate hearing? There was
no rush. The senate waited over a year to replace
a justice a short time ago. Yet Moscow Mitch
said we had to be quick this time. I think it
was because our corrupt leader of the senate
knew  this man would not be approved unless
they did it quickly, and Moscow Mitch wanted to 
please Trump no matter what.

So now the GOP will have to defend a man who
never should have been approved for the supreme
court, and they  know it. This corruption of senate
proceedings should cost the GOP dearly, When
they tried to  get rid of the ACA they used dirty
tricks, and did the same when they passed a Tax
cut designed to benefit their  rich supporters. A tax
cut that is putting the U S A deeper in debt to the
tune of Trillions of dollars. Even though the GOP
and Trump claimed it would not.

Corruption in Washington DC is nothing new. People
from both the democrats and republicans are guilty of it.
One of the big ones was a democrat speaker of the
house. Corruption should be rooted out when ever it's
found. Because it hurts not only the rule of law, it costs
the respect of voters. And when voters feel their votes
don't really count, they stay home.

It seems odd to me that if the U S is exporting oil, why
would we have to pay more just because a foreign oil
provider production was cut by an attack? Yes I know
the oil and gas industry feels they should be able to
charge world oil prices even at home, but to me that
is just money grubbing. It gets back to the old pricing
according to value, and not the cost, which is just
plain old greed in my opinion.

If the price of oil rises very much, it will be a drag
on the world economy. An economy that is already
under strain due to  Trumps tariffs. This could easily
drag the U S economy down as well. So you can be
sure Trump and the GOP are getting nervous. Our
strategic reserves can prevent shortages, but not
price increases to the driving public, and higher
fuel prices for trucks will end up with higher
prices for food and other products as well.

The Trump administration is apparently blocking
a whistle blower in two cases. One about how the
IRS is mishandling a audit of Trumps taxes.
Another is about something to do with intelligence
handling by the white house, and possibly the
president.

The house of representatives is supposed to
get this kind of information, but it appears
Trump is blocking it via the justice department.

Trump may have kept his business activities
under wraps, but even though he wants to do
the same as president. It's against the law. It's
the duty of congress to review the actions of
the president. The GOP doesn't care enough to
do the job, but the democrats were elected
to see that Trump obeys the law. So far
Trump has worked harder at hiding his dirty
work than doing the job he was elected to do.

Reports are that Trump has told Saudi Arabia
they only need to let our military know what
they need attacked, relevant to  Iran, and he
will order the military to do it.

Apparently Trump is doing this to repay them
for all the money they have given him and his
family. If so Trump should be impeached and
thrown in prison, including family if they
were involved.

Trump treats Saudi Arabia with kid gloves, and
bows to their demands. of the 5 vetoes he has
made since being in office, 4 of them were to
protect Saudi Arabia. Now in the past
presidents have worked to help the Saudi's,
but  not to the degree Trump has. Also we are no
longer dependent on them for oil. In fact we
produce more than they do.

Trump claims he has no desire to go to war with
Iran, but with Trump every word should be
looked at as a possible lie.  If Trump
feels it would be to  his benefit, I think he
would send our soldiers against Iran with
no concern for them at all.

Trump has brought this crisis with Iran on  himself.
 He just had to pull out of the agreement Obama
made with Iran, because he feels he has to undo
everything Obama did. So now he has put sanctions
on Iran to the point they are hitting back. If Trump
had been smart he would have continued to improve
our relations with Iran, but no, he lets Saudi Arabia
tell him how to respond instead.

Trump was asked if he supported the auto workers
strike. But after a lot of talk he never said
that he did. He even claimed the UAW supported
him when there is evidence they voted for Clinton.
Trump just has to lie, and lie again and again.
Apparently afraid of the truth.
