Trump goes after Pence, McConnell in speech to party donors

Monday, April 12th, 2021

Trump goes after Pence, McConnell in speech to party donors [Video and Article] [Issues: Divide and Destroy, GOP at War with Self, King Trump]

It was supposed to be a unifying weekend for a Republican Party at war with itself over former President Donald Trump’s divisive leadership. But Trump himself shattered two days of relative peace in his closing remarks to the GOP’s top donors when he insulted the party’s Senate leader and his wife.

Ahead of the invitation-only speech at Trump’s new home inside his Mar-a-Lago resort, the former president’s advisers said he would emphasize his commitment to his party and Republican unity.

Trump veered sharply from prepared remarks Saturday night and instead slammed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as a “stone-cold loser” and mocked McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, who was Trump’s transportation secretary.

Trump also said he was “disappointed” in his vice president, Mike Pence, and used a profanity in assessing McConnell, according to multiple people in attendance who were not authorized to publicly discuss what was said in a private session. He said McConnell had not thanked him properly for putting Chao, who was labor secretary under President George W. Bush, in his Cabinet…

While a significant faction of the Republican Party hopes to move past Trump’s divisive leadership, the location of the event — and the former president’s prominent speaking slot — suggests that the GOP, at least for now, is not ready to replace Trump as its undisputed leader and chief fundraiser.

Ahead of his latest attack on fellow Republicans, Trump’s team reported that his remarks were intended to reinforce his continued leadership role in Republican affairs, a sharp break from past presidents…

Doesn’t it sound like Trump is refusing to accept the fact that he failed twice to be elected?  Was Trump shocked that the Republicans rigging of purging the voter rolls of seventeen million Democratic voters wasn’t enough?  Isn’t the fact that Trump is still repeating the same lies that incited the violent riot, demonstrate that Trump’s goal was to incite an insurrection?  Why can’t so many understand that today’s GOP is not the Republican Party of Lincoln, Hayes, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, or even Reagan?  Why is Trump saying that he will wait until 2022 to announce whether he will be running?  Is it because, Trump wants to make sure his legal troubles haven’t landed him in prison, or is it because Trump wants to keep milking his supporters for every cent possible?



Prosecutors have “mounting amount of evidence” against Trump, Michael Cohen says

Prosecutors have “mounting amount of evidence” against Trump, Michael Cohen says [Video and Article] [Issues: Trump’s Troubles, Crimes, Prison time]

Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, says he is “not interested” in a presidential pardon— and claims Mr. Trump is going to face legal issues of his own soon after leaving the White House.

“It has to do with his finances, it has to do with his tax returns, it has to do with his properties, it has to do with the personal financial statements that he had made and provided in order to obtain loans,” Cohen said on CBSN Thursday.

A number of investigations could cause legal trouble for Mr. Trump after he leaves office in January, including potential congressional inquiries as well as probes by the attorneys general of New York and Washington, D.C. and the Manhattan district attorney.

Cohen said he had been questioned by the state attorney general’s team and the district attorney’s office and claimed investigators are “well-prepared” with their evidence to “move relatively quickly” in their probes.

“I do believe that there is a mounting amount of evidence that they will be prosecuting upon,” Cohen said. “Some of it of course is civil, and other parts of it are criminal.”…

Asked about the president’s mindset, Cohen, who worked as Mr. Trump’s “fixer” for years before their public rift, said: “What he is right now is very, very nervous and he is very scared because in 27 days he knows that Joe Biden is going to be sworn in, and that’s when there’s going to be a plethora of litigation and subpoenas that are going to be flying around that he cannot control anymore.”…

How worried is Donald Trump?  If you say that Mr. Trump is not worried, why is he issuing pardons like Halloween candy?  Why is Trump talking about pardoning his children and himself if he isn’t worried or guilty?  Did you know that Trump cannot pardon anyone for a city or state charge?  Could Trump end up in the very prison cell that he threaten to put Hillary into?  Do you want to see Donald Trump in prison?

The Psychopath and Chief

Friday, February 7th, 2020

image Years ago, I visited a man in prison who had been convicted of rape. He complained about how unfair the system had been to him, for he had been in prison for nine years. It turned out that he had raped nine women that they had found out about. I remember thinking “That’s only one year for every rape” how many years did each of these women suffer from the fear of it happening again, how did those rapes affect the lives all around? Yet, this man was only focused on how unfair the system was to him. He clearly was a psychopath.

A psychopath doesn’t have a conscience. If he lies to you so he can steal your money, he won’t feel any moral qualms, though he may pretend to. A psychopath lacks empathy, the ability to stand in someone else’s shoes and understand how they feel. A psychopath is someone who sees others as objects he can use for his own benefit. A person with this antisocial personality disorder sees themself at the center of the universe. Some even imagine that they are the only real people that others are only there for his/her pleasure.

Clearly this man was a psychopath without any remorse or guilt, seeing his punishment as being unfair and refusing to recognize what he did wrong. He wanted even needed others to tell him that he was a victim of that system when, in fact, he was the one who victimized so many innocent women.

At the National Prayer Breakfast, Donald Trump attacked supporters of the impeachment drive. Instead of a humble spirit, Mr. Trump proclaimed that he was a victim of the system. He said how unfair that system had been to him. “As everybody knows, I have been put through a terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people.” Trump refused to admit that he was wrong to have conspired with a foreign government against the United States. To be fair, he might not be able to see his wrong. For a psychopath, the sense of right and wrong just do not exist. Nixon said, “When the president does it, that means it is not illegal” he was wrong, we do not have a king with absolute power, that was the very last thing that the Founders wanted. Trump seems to think that “When Trump does it, that means it is not illegal” and that is the problem.

Now, Mr. Trump is attacking those who only sought justice. Trump wants to be vindicated because he sees himself as the victim. The fact is that Mr. Trump is no more a victim than that rapist was. All of those poor women who that man had raped, they were the victim, not the rapist! The Bidens and the Nation were the victims of Trump’s treasonous crime, not Mr. Trump! The sad truth is that Donald Trump is unable to see how wrong he is, which means that he will continue to make new victims. Trump will continue to spread lies because he is a liar who has convinced himself that if he says it, it has to be true.

For this reason alone, the Democratic House must do whatever it takes to remove this man from being able to harm the nation! For if the police had not arrested and the court convicted that rapist, he would have gone on raping. In the same way, Trump must be held accountable for his crimes. If that rapist had been able to pack the jury with family members, with people that he had bought off, and some who were afraid to vote against him, it would not have been a fair trial and he would have faced more charges. In the same way, Mr. Trump has not been exonerated, he has just made all but one Republican guilty of his crimes.

We have heard Donald Trump crying about how unfair the system was to him, let’s focus on how unfair Trump has been in his victimizing of innocent people. Let’s call out every Trump supporter who repeats Trump’s lies and hate! It is time, my friends, to put an end to this despicable White House!

The Obstructionists are whining about being Obstructed ~ Pure Hypocrisy

Monday, June 5th, 2017

It’s amazing the twisted world of Trump Republicans, after over 500 filibusters by Republicans against the real president Barack Obama, Trump now is whining that the Democrats aren’t falling over to summit to his will.  Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) took to the Senate floor Thursday to mark a milestone of sorts: eight years of obstructing and insulting the nation’s first black president.

If Republicans could obstruct everything that President Obama put on the table, shouldn’t Trump Republicans avoid whining that Trump is being obstructed?  The truth is that the Democrats are not obstructing, they are doing their jobs.  That is something which the Republicans who constantly obstructed a legitimate president cannot say with all honesty.

The Attacks Against Jewish graveyards, schools and Synagogues since Trump became President

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

A Jewish cemetery near Philadelphia was just vandalized. Is this the start of a trend? Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Ben Mankiewicz, the hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

Police say vandals attacked a Jewish cemetery in Northeast Philadelphia this weekend, just a week after a similar incident was reported at a Jewish burial ground in suburban St. Louis.

According to Jim McReynolds, a detective for the Philadelphia Police Department, at least 75 to 100 headstones at Mount Carmel Cemetery were discovered knocked over Sunday morning. Several of the headstones were broken. Police are investigating the incident as a case of vandalism….

Two Muslim American activists started a fundraiser to help pay for repairs at Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery. More than $130,000 had been donated in less than a week. On Sunday afternoon, the organizers of the campaign posted an update saying they had contacted Mount Carmel to offer funds from the campaign.

It’s easy to put the blame for all the anti-Semitic attacks, the attacks on Muslims, Immigrants and African-Americans on the extreme Trump followers, but we must be careful and as Cenk Uygur said in the video, push for an investigation.  We all know that Trump has been pushing rhetoric and policies which promote hate.  Trump finally spoke out about these attacks, but only so that the Right could say that he did.  His heart really didn’t seem to be in that address, all he did was to read a prepared statement which was clearly not his own words.

To be clear Hate groups have been active long before Trump starting his campaign.  We also know that an young Donald Trump was a strong contributor to racism. Many would like to forget Trump’s past, but there are far too many racists who are embracing it.

One early red flag arose in 1973, when President Richard Nixon’s Justice Department — not exactly the radicals of the day — sued Trump and his father, Fred Trump, for systematically discriminating against blacks in housing rentals.

I’ve waded through 1,021 pages of documents from that legal battle, and they are devastating. Donald Trump was then president of the family real estate firm, and the government amassed overwhelming evidence that the company had a policy of discriminating against blacks, including those serving in the military.  Read more…

Donald Trump’s rhetoric has encouraged acts of terror in his own country, the head of a leading American Jewish organization has said.

Speaking to The Independent the day after four of his organization’s US offices were targeted by bomb threats, Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), said Mr Trump had helped create a situation where racist extremists felt “emboldened”. ..

Mr Greenblatt, whose organization combats hate crime and anti-Semitism, criticised Mr Trump for both his campaign rhetoric and his slowness to condemn about 140 bomb threats to US Jewish institutions that have occurred since January, the month the 45th President took office.

These, he said, had gone way beyond threats to the ADL’s offices in Atlanta, Boston, Washington and New York, with evacuations of schools and homes for older people leading to “threatened pre-school children being hustled out of classrooms, elderly patients being wheeled out of their care programmes”.

Other minorities had been similarly affected, said Mr Greenblatt, with some suffering fatalities. Two weeks ago, in Kansas, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, an Indian immigrant was shot dead after allegedly having been mistaken for an Iranian.

“We write to underscore the need for swift action with regard to the deeply troubling series of anonymous bomb threats made against Jewish Community Centers (JCCs), Jewish day schools, synagogues and other buildings affiliated with Jewish organizations or institutions across the country,” wrote the Senate in a letter to the White House.

Because of this pressure from the Senate, Trump has spoken out against these hate crimes.  It might have been weak, but at least it is a start.  The Alt-Right White supremacists have been excited by Trump’s elections, for they feel like he is one of them.  This might be the major reason for the raise in hate crimes, but Trump’s feeding the hate with racist rhetoric during the campaign and his slowness to speak out against it has been a great aid to the growing hate culture in the United States.  The positive side to all of this is that there are more of us opposed to racism than there are bigots.  The fact that Muslim groups have been collecting more than enough money to prepare the damages.  It is time for us all to ban together and say no to Hate, we just won’t take it any more.

Trump’s Business Just Got Chinese Approval To Operate Escort Services

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Author: DonnaMM

The hypocrisy of Republicans is unbelievable!  My God, if a Democrat had been grabbing women by there private parts, cheating workers out of their pay, refusing to show their tax records and getting golden showers in Russia, the Republicans would have impeached him in a second.  Why is it okay to promote prostitution if the man doing it is a Republican?  Trump makes me so sick!

[QUOTE]President Donald Trump’s business interests are diverse. He owns hotels, real estate, golf courses, and casinos as well as other smaller ventures like his Trump Steaks brand. Now Donald Trump has decided to begin the process of creating businesses centered around vice. The Chinese government has granted preliminary approval for 38 new Trump trademarks, including one for a Trump escort service! Link[/QUOTE]

Escort service, ‘Prostitution’ not only prostitution via slavery.  These women aren’t free to say “No!”  Arguably, no woman would ever choose to be a prostitute.  They are forced into prostitution by many different ways.  Poverty is the biggest recruiting tool for prostitution. When a Mother can’t feed, put clothing on her children or a roof over her their heads, yes she will prostitute her body.  Then you have the men forcing women into prostitution.  There is an actual industry which kidnaps young girls and sells them into prostitution.  Men, don’t kid yourself by thinking that those women are prostituting themselves because they like it and would be doing so no matter what.

Trump Accused Obama Of Wiretapping Him and the Obama’s Response was Perfect

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

Author: Matt King

This morning, President Donald Trump lashed out in an impulsive tweetstorm accusing President Obama of ordering the wiretapping of Trump Tower in a pathetic attempt to deflect attention away from the investigation into suspected collusion between the Trump team and agents of the Russian Federation.

Instead, he ended up just throwing more fuel on the fire that threatens to engulf his entire administration.

Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis just responded with this statement that should put the matter to rest:

“A cardinal rule of the Obama administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice.

As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”  Read the rest of the story by clicking here


Donald Trump is a sociopathic liar who has found himself in a world of trouble from his seemingly illegal association with the Russians.  The oldest trick in the book for someone caught with their hand in the cookie jar is to accuse someone else of doing the same or worse

Trump may have thought he was helping to shift the spotlight off of himself and onto President Obama by giving credence to a ridiculous Breitbart conspiracy that alleges a secret “Obama shadow government” is behind the information leaks and the protests across the country.

Instead, he just dug himself deeper into the hole. All of this just makes the need for a special prosecutor to lead the investigation into the Trump, his team and their alleged collusion with Russian agents all the more urgent.

Trump’s accusation of Fake News to those who weren’t favorable towards him is another example of this projection which he uses so well to divert attention away from himself.  The Fake News is coming from sites like Breitbart who are always giving Trump favorable coverage.  Trump is doing the same thing here with his accusation of being wire tapped by President Obama.  Trump simply doesn’t want to face the music for his treasonous alliance with the Russians.  Yes, it is time for a special prosecutor to investigate Trump and if Trump really thinks that a good lawyer could make a good case because of his foolish accusations, then let him hire the best at his own expense.  It’s time for the truth Donald, I know that you aren’t use to it, but we, the American People will have it.  Post your comments here.

If Trump is against Trade Deals, I’ll be For Them ~ Is that a Mistake?

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

Author: Marty Martorella

It use be that Republicans were for trade agreements and Democrats have historically been opposed to them. New polls show that this is switching, as reported on the Thom Hartmann show. The primary reason is that Trump is is toxic that when he seems to be for or against something it is easy to take the opposite position. We must be careful, because somethings are wrong or right regardless of who is advocating them. Instead of opposing Trump’s stand against trade deals which is bringing many Republicans to our cause, we must remember that these are our causes. Why have such things been our causes? Because they are the right things!

If Trump’s rhetoric brings people to our side on a issue, we must own that issue. We must hold Trump’s feet to the fire, proclaim that that such things are Liberal principles which we have called for over many years. We must also face the fact that most of this is just Trump rhetoric which he has no intention of following through with.

What is dangerous with his ideals is that he is championing the old Right-wing cry against regulations. Here is the fact without political bias, regulations protect the public, but they also limit the profits of the rich. This is why Trump Republicans want to remove all regulations, they hinder their ability to make massive amounts of money. The fact that people lose their lives or are crippled doesn’t matter so long as the rich can get richer.

We need to get ahead of Trump on the trade issue by proclaiming that we are glad to see that Republicans are finally are now siding with our operations to trade deals. We must remind the public that we have opposed those trade deals for years, because that such deals wipe out regulations designed to protect the public. We must remind that such deals have kept the income of the majority of Americans artificially low. Those deals are hazards to the health of the public and means that as a people, we need a universal health care system which covers all Americans. If Trump Republicans are finally embracing the Democratic position that trade deals harm America, then they should join Democrats in repelling all of them and make it clear that these are treaties which can only be passed into law with two thirds of the Senate. Without that two thirds approval, no trade treaty can be placed into law.

Let us get ahead of the Republicans in the opposition to trade deals and own it. We are the majority and can be the force for good, but we cannot allow ourselves to be manipulated into opposing our own mortal positions just because someone like a Trump is giving lip service to them. Post your comments here.
