We can ride this out! Just have to remind ourselves..

Mahalo for doing so.

I remember that dream someone had that drumpf won.. how prescient.. we all thought it was just a nightmare.

I still feel like we're living one and we need to wake up.. It's the literal Global Twilight Zone magnified by billions.

Yes, it can get very depressing around here with all the latest news from putin pandering central.. greedy plans to strip our Democracy bare.

But, we can also find friends to talk to and help each other through this.. It's been over a month and although I have had some good days.. the peace of mind has been fleeting.

Never Giving up, though.. We can do this. Like rzemanfl says..

I am thinking of a novel. A political thriller.

The leader of the free world has lots of evidence that a foreign power has influenced the outcome of an election that chose a dangerous moron sociopath as his successor. He has information from multiple super-secret agencies regarding the interference. The problems he is facing are-

1) he doesn't know who he can trust, the FBI, for one, is certainly involved in the plot
2) he needs absolute, incontrovertible proof-confessions, transcripts of phone calls, proof of software hacks and machine tampering
3) he cannot tip his hand until the time is right
4) he wants to avoid a civil war
5) he has very little time

I think I will call my main character "Barack."

Oh yeah, the fucker who along with his drooling lackies

got together on Obama's inauguration night and proclaimed they would block everything he tried to do.

Flashback - Inauguration Day January 20, 2009

As President Barack Obama was celebrating his inauguration at various balls, top Republican lawmakers and strategists were conjuring up ways to submarine his presidency at a private dinner in Washington.

According to Draper, the guest list that night (which was just over 15 people in total) included Republican Reps. Eric Cantor (Va.), Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), Paul Ryan (Wis.), Pete Sessions (Texas), Jeb Hensarling (Texas), Pete Hoekstra (Mich.) and Dan Lungren (Calif.), along with Republican Sens. Jim DeMint (S.C.), Jon Kyl (Ariz.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), John Ensign (Nev.) and Bob Corker (Tenn.). The non-lawmakers present included Newt Gingrich, several years removed from his presidential campaign, and Frank Luntz, the long-time Republican wordsmith. Notably absent were Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) -- who, Draper writes, had an acrimonious relationship with Luntz.

Republicans had it in for Obama before Day

At first, we thought organized Republican recalcitrance against the president started in October 2010 after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) famously said, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

Mahalo, rzemanfl Can I borrow it and pass it around to those who

Nixon redux

Ah... I do remember it.. thank you.

DORAL, Fla. — Donald J. Trump said on Wednesday that he hoped Russian intelligence services had successfully hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, and encouraged them to publish whatever they may have stolen, essentially urging a foreign adversary to conduct cyberespionage against a former secretary of state.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said during a news conference here in an apparent reference to Mrs. Clinton’s deleted emails. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

fucking jerkoff

No worries.. you can insult me all you want.. it

means less than nothing.

Hillary won the primary with 3 3/4 Million more votes than BS without oppo research on him. his message did not resonate with enough voters.

Oh and I posted some more damn fACTs but that post is gone.

I'm not going to be subjected to that again.

Respond or not.. As for me I'm done with this.



Cat tells it..




Thank you for those, working!

I will watch later today.






It's lights out here.

How the hell does she know? "these men are "far more deeply personally committed to upholding and

protecting our democracy than their critics."

Something Disturbing About Tulsi Gabbard

...The real kicker in my mind comes at the end when Gabbard says that these men are "far more deeply personally committed to upholding and protecting our democracy than their critics." The suggestion here is not about the particular individuals, who I believe are deeply committed to America and its democratic institutions. But what Gabbard is suggesting here is that as generals they are more committed than civilians.

I'm sure trump and bannon appreciate her sticking up for the trump generals. Does she know a damn thing about Flynn and Mattis?

They're more committed to protecting our Democracy than any civilian criticizing them? Right tulsi. Whatever.

She stepped in it. I mentioned bannon because there was some article about how much he liked her.. that I read awhile ago.

Thank you for this, bigtree.. "Kernel of an idea that has destroyed many democracies"

I'll say.

Thank you, djsunyc

Dear Working-Class White Trump Voter,

You’re probably going to read this as sour grapes, and I certainly am sour about a family of kleptocrats moving into the White House because 80,000 of your votes in states that get more federal tax dollars than they put in trump 2.7 million of ours, even though we carry you financially, and California and New York could function just fine as our own countries, without you.
