Posted in: Trump says Pelosi may be guilty of treason See in context

Trump is a complete embarrassment.

Treason is the only crime defined in the Constitution because tyrants had used charges of "treason" to imprison anyone they wanted. They had someone like Trump in mind.

“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Posted in: McConnell says he would not be able to derail House impeachment effort See in context

McConnell is as much a part of the problem with the current government as Trump.

So, it is impossible to believe much that he says.

Democrats recently changed the whistleblower rules to allow third-party complaints

Wow, this falsehood has already been debunked. Of course, Gulianni is spouting these lies to the true believers, so they are repeated.

Why is it the GoP always claims the weak underdog position: those dastardly Dems changing the rules to allow in evidence of Trump's wrong doing. Hmmm.

Assume that this was true (it is not), How does that change your opinion of soliciting the Ukraine to interfere with the 2020 election? Because Trump was by his own admission soliciting Ukraine. How can anyone justify that as being appropriate? I guess if you are losing and you will do anything to win.....

This may be why elected Democrats haven't actually begun an impeachment. They still don't have any actual evidence of wrong doing.

Yes, with the exception of the admissions in the transcript (which are patently criminal) the WB statement is mostly hearsay, which can be used to obtain a subpoena to obtain the direct evidence.

Posted in: Trump allies in disarray as Democrats push impeachment See in context

We all should hope that the impeachment process goes quickly.

The evidence is damning, and Trump is handing it out against his own top advisors. He can't even tell when he commits a crime. And then, there is the cover up.

The big downside of impeachment is Pence. Out of the frying pan and into the fire.

In need of a distraction, Trump is also chasing the Clinton server again.

Let's hope he doesn't completely "Wag the Dog" and decide he needs to do something disruptive, like start a trade war or an actual war.

Another Batman origin story, this time dark and moody.

Posted in: Pentagon tells White House to stop politicizing military after USS John McCain incident See in context

The goal would be to ensure there is less ambiguity about how the military should support VIP events and how service members should respond to such political requests

My first thought is that the military should not act on political PR requests. However, that is naive.

Officers are representatives of the government and are creatures of and subject to political influence. Still, senior officers should shield their junior officers as much as possible from inappropriate political influence and take the heat if necessary even if it is career suicide.

The actions of the military in this instance just appears to be confused and embarrassing. The political acts? Are commonly confused and embarrassing, if not deadly.

What is clear, is there is a lack of leadership starting with Trump. And, that lack of leadership has flowed down the chain of command. A tarp, then a tug was put in front of the name. Then, someone grew a brain and stopped the idiocy.

The officers and sailors on that ship should not have been compromised in this way, and a leader somewhere in the chain failed those men and women in a large way.

So he is just going to do whatever he thinks is right. 

Two problems with that statement: (1) the dude is unable to make educated decisions (besides base self-enrichment), and (2) his decisions usually violate the constitution (including the bill of rights), the law, human rights, objective facts; you know, those pesky obstacles.

Excellent!

Yea, not so excellent because then everyone thinks that they can do what they think is right. It is already happening. Fools are accosting Americans demanding to see green cards or a drivers license, lawless vigilantes at the border.

Well, looks like we're all going to pay for Trump's immigration policy.

That can't be true, Trump said China pays tariffs. So, Mexico will be paying these tariffs. Right???

Posted in: Trump says impeachment is 'dirty, filthy, disgusting word' See in context

the Democrats just don’t have the votes and the Republicans with the exception of one will not remove him from office. So this is all a fantasy in the Democrats head, he will not be removed

Basically true for once except you are jumping the shark a little. How will the public feel watching a Senate trail run like a third world country while damning evidence is presented? People are already fed up privileged people getting off, ala affluenza, the Stanford rape case, DWB.

Maybe you are right though, the public is too uninformed and misinformed to understand the water is boiling and they are getting cooked.

Dems will take the bait soon. It’s doubtful even all their own side will vote for this. Will be a total embarrassment when they do.

The Dems haven't yet because they don't want the same consequences of the Clinton impeachment when the Republicans lost control of the legislature because the GoP thought it was politically important to impeach a president for something as mundane as lying about consensual sex.

No, if the Dems bring impeachment charges, there will be more than a stained dress to cry about. Part 2 of the Mueller report clearly shows the President obstructed justice, the first article of Nixon's impeachment.

My worry with impeachment is Pence. That dude is afraid to be alone in a room with a woman who isn't his wife. If that isn't extreme and delusional, I don't know what is.

So then Mueller could have recommended that, but he didn’t, so regardless of what Mueller THOUGHT or FELT, it’s irrelevant, was there a crime committed or not? He couldn’t prove it, so than there was No crime.

Still in the Truthiness business?

"Truthiness is the belief or assertion that a particular statement is true based on the intuition or perceptions of some individual or individuals, without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts."

"Democrat fish story from hell"

Superlative marketing.

Funny, you think intelligence is required to be elected when Trump's in the office.

Posted in: Mueller says probe did not clear Trump as Congress weighs impeachment See in context

This is the era when "spin" isn't enough.

Mueller: "The Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing,"  For those who can't fully understand English: We couldn't prosecute because the only action against a president's criminal acts is impeachment, but we couldn't exonerate because the facts didn't support exoneration.

Trump, Barr and GoP (and supporters): Clearly, “There was insufficient evidence" “Today was phenomenal news."  The GoP has become a party of zealots knowingly telling and believing outright lies. Shameful.

The more erratic things he done the more boosting for Communist China to emerge as world hegamony! Not a bad idea!

China has more to lose in this game!!

What happens if Trump follows through and hits all Chinese imports with tariffs?

That is the threat.

Posted in: As outrage grows over children, Trump says he will not let U.S. become 'migrant camp' See in context

The current situation is a problem because the number of families who enter the US illegally is skyrocketing.

Because the Trump administration is denying entry for asylum seekers, so asylum seekers are entering illegally.

There is no change in the number of families entering the U.S.

The other fallacy (part of your skyrocketing statistics) is that smugglers are using children to enter the country and escape incarceration. The number of people doing that is 6 in 10,000, and that hasn't changed.

The statistical methods to measure immigration are being manipulated to produce a skyrocket effect. The only change is a slow change to normal immigration after immigration slowed following Trump getting put in office.

Trump and co are too dumb to keep the lies going.

This is all about deterrence, which is criminal and unethical.

The people still supporting Trump on this should be ashamed.

Trump and Xi are both dictators, but one of them is much better at it.

China will fight to keep the gains it has won through its unbalanced trade policies. They will not give in easily, and they have a stronger control of their country and economy.

My state is a sanctuary state and to me I think it’s disgusting to watch to see how my beautiful state is crumbling and turning into a Third World stat us. All of the politicians in California are sick!

The horror. Being human is a sickness.

Your state has always been known for its Hispanic history and what that brings, gangs, poor people, farm workers, great food. It isn't all white, and it isn't all Hispanics. You see every ethnicity.

In the early days, the farms were completely dependent on migrant workers, and without the farms and migrants, your state would be half of what it is.

Even the biggest and most well known cities there are named using Spanish, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco.

Trump is just jealous of the real billionaires like Elon Musk and Richard Branson who have their own space programs. If he was serious, he wouldn't have appointed James Bridenstine to head NASA.

Posted in: Giuliani says Trump could issue pardons after Russia probe See in context

I’m still waiting to hear why liberals don’t discuss the Strozk and Podesta texts.

We can hear from him at the Congressional hearing. I see it as nothing. Talk between two intimate people that wasn't expected to see the light of day or be acted upon. Just some sexy talk between the two.

The obvious conclusion was his preference (or dislike of Trump) wasn't put into action, or we would have known Trump was being investigated.

I don't think that's a conclusion people come to, it's just repeating that which they were told by people they were supposed to be able to believe.

There is that explanation, the parrot who repeats but doesn't know what it says.

The other one is illegal means dangerous.

Both are fallacies. Legal is often still dangerous.

But they want to use it to somehow spin the story to blame Stone and Trump for what the FBI did, which was a clumsy attempt at entrapment.

The FBI's Russia investigation hadn't even started yet.

Stone willingly went to visit the guy to get dirt. Seems familiar.

They both lived in swanky places in S. Miami beach, but they went to a remote out of the way diner to meet.

Now, you (and Stone) are trying to defend the actions by saying FBI informant. The guy's friend who asked for the money Alexi also claimed to be a disgruntled Clinton Foundation employee, but they don't know of anyone by that name. Not to give you any more unsubstantiated ideas, but you should probably include the Clinton Foundation with the FBI in your conspiracy theory.

If you read the story instead of listening to Alex Jones, you would know that the so-called FBI informant was lot like Stone, Sater, Manafort, and a slew of other dirt bags surrounding Trump. He was only an FBI informant because he had contacts in (wait for it) . . . Russia, and he wanted to live in America but was imprisoned in the U.S. for assaulting someone. He had super model wives, and rubbed elbows with celebrities in Russia and the U.S. He stopped working for with the FBI a number of years before he met Stone.

Posted in: 5 dead as SUV being chased crashes in South Texas See in context

driving a car at speeds of 100 miles per hour in an attempt to avoid law enforcement while breaking the law is the cause of this. Not any immigration policy. Just let criminals go if they are willing to drive fast and endanger US citizen and law enforcement lives?

How the law is being enforced is the cause of this.

So, by your argument, if a crowd of innocent taxpaying church going Trump supporting Republicans get hit by a fleeing vehicle, that is OK. They died in the service of the law, but at least they caught the criminals. Sure, the criminals are dead too.

What if it was your family or friends who were hit during a high speed chase? Feel the same way?

How about a shoplifter?

How about a jaywalker?

How about simple trespass?

All those are crimes. Should we chase them too and endanger the same crowd.

No, smart police departments know that high speed chases endanger their constituents and their officers, so they don't do it. Instead, they get the license plate and show up later.

Inhaling solvents has a higher death rate compared to other ways to get high. Marijuana isn't the safe, side effect free substance many of it's fans like to think, but it is much safer tha sniffing paint thinner.

MJ is safer than aspirin, tylenol, or any other pharmaceutical drug you can legally buy over the counter or by prescription to include alcohol and tobacco, or any illegal drug. I've even heard of water poisoning from drinking too much water.

"This, I think, is a perfect example, of why are borders need to be secured," Boyd said.

Boyd isn't thinking very clearly. High speed chases and border security are mutually exclusive.

High-speed chases are dangerous for everyone, and there is no need for them except in the most extreme cases, like a risk to the loss of life, catching a violent felon, escaped prisoner.

Many police departments have changed their policies and will call off these types of chases.

This is another "perfect example" of the Trump administration and ICE going full gestapo.

Posted in: Giuliani says Trump could issue pardons after Russia probe See in context

"The president is not going to issue pardons in this investigation," Giuliani said. "Because you just cloud what is becoming now a very clear picture of an extremely unfair investigation with no criminality involved in it of any kind."

It's always amazing how the lame stream media, and Hillary worshippers, will ignore this simple statement and concentrate their bile on unissued pardons.

It's always amazing that Trumpets ignore the more important implications of issuing a pardon or why Trump and his henchmen are even talking about this in public.

1 The person has to admit guilt. 2 There is no 5th amendment protection after a pardon. 3 Send a message to not talk.

Trump has established signals, "Unfair" with other pardons, and he is using that language to talk about trials that have not even finished, or in the case of "Flynn" who Trump personally fired for "lying".

Trump adviser Roger Stone reveals new meeting with Russian

Stone conveniently forgot about that. His attorney amended his Congressional testimony to mitigate perjury charges. Lucky for Stone, he hasn't been interviewed by the FBI or Mueller, or he would be charged with lying to the FBI.

How many Trump meetings with Russians have we learned about through the "fake news" and which Trump personally and people close to him flat out lied about? The count is around 10 meetings and growing. At least two were for the specific illegal purpose of getting information on Hillary from Russia. The purpose of the other meetings is still a secret among the conspirators until Mueller discloses what he finds.
