How can somthing so simple be so confusing (Tump and the Russians)?

To me, it's simple.

Trump and his team were not under surveillance. Ever time a Trump surrogate or that asshole Spicer refer to news reports of Trump's campaign being quoted by our intelligence sources as evidence that they were under surveillance, I could scream.

Here's what I say to any nit-wit Trump supporter. "Do you think that Russian intelligence agents are under surveillance by the CIA (outside the United States) and the FBI (inside the United States)?" They always answer "yes" (after all no one is that stupid to say "no"). Then I ask, "If one of those Russian spies is in contact with a U.S. citizen, and that citizen conspires with that Russian agent to undermine the United States, and is caught in that surveillance, what should the United States government do, throw that information away?" When they answer "of course not". My answer is "that's exactly what happened to those assholes you supported. That's why they'll go to fucking jail. Now, let me hear you chant, lock them up!!!"

What laws has Donald Trump and his campaign associates broken?

Try this one on for size.

18 U.S. Code § 953 - Private correspondence with foreign governments
Current through Pub. L. 114-38. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)
US Code

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 744; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(K), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

Trumpcare cuts deficit by $300 Billion

There's the line the Conservative Republicans like to throw around. By the way, it's true, so let's see where it comes from.

The expansion of Medicaid in Obamacare increases the number of middle class families who could afford health care. The biggest reason that fewer people are insured on Obamacare than originally predicted is that 19 states controlled by Republicans refused the Medicaid expansion in an attempt to make the plan fail. Trumpcare cuts 800 Billion Medicaid dollars over 10 years. Those dollars are meant for seniors, the poor and the middle class. The greater number of beneficiaries of these dollars are the Trump voting demographics in rural counties and red states.


But why, then aren't the tax payers saving $800 billion on the deficit? It's because $500 Billion of those cuts are going to the very wealthiest Americans


So, finally, we get to the Repuke talking point, $300 Billion in deficit reduction over 10 years


So, the fucking assholes, fleecing all of us, including the stupid pieces of shit that voted for this asshole, lose $800 billon in subsidies for health care over 10 years, $500 Billion of it goes to the mother fuckers who don't need it, and Trump and the Repukes get to tout "Fiscal Responsibility" with the remaining $300 Billion.

They are not dumb. They think we are.

What the Fuck was the Russian Ambassador Doing at the Republican Convention ?

The Republican Convention. A number of Trump surrogates met with the Russian Ambassador at the Republican Convention in Cleveland. The only change to the Republican platform was to water down a platform plank that supplied arms to the nationalist in Crimea who were fighting the Russians.

What a fucking coincidence. Then, just before the Democratic Convention, there's a Russian inspired document dump that embarrasses the DNC and causes the chairwoman to resign.

What a fucking coincidence.

Let's put it this way. There is far more empirical and circumstantial evidence that the Trump campaign was in cahoots with Russia to undermine our free election process then there was that Raphael Cruz was involved in the JFK assassination, and Trump believed that.

Last 3 Terrorist Attacks in North America Conducted by White Men

At least 2 of them are Trump supporters.

(1). The Attack at the Mosque in Canada conducted by a French-Canadian separatist who was connected to the right wing in France.

(2). The Trump supporter who killed an Indian national in a Kansas bar, while shouting "get out of my country".

(3). Now, some drunk asshole who plowed into people in New Orleans.

Where's the President's outrage?

Right to Work Defeated in New Hampshire

When New Hampshire voters elected a Republican Governor, a Republican State House and a Republican State Senate, the ingredients for the recipe for a Right to Work state were all in place.

The Senate narrowly voted anti-union and in favor of Right to Work. Governor Sununu was poised to sign it, but today the house voted down the anti-union law, 200 to 177 and voted that it can't be reintroduced during the current term.

New England remains a six state block against anti-union laws.


For Immediate Release: February 16, 2017

New Hampshire AFL-CIO Reacts to House Vote on “Right to Work”

Concord – Following the House vote on so-called “Right to Work” today, Glenn Brackett, President of the New Hampshire AFL-CIO made the following statement:

“Today a bi-partisan majority confirmed that ‘Right to Work’ is still wrong for New Hampshire, and this vote should be the final nail in the coffin. Across the Granite State, working people stood together against this corporate-backed legislation that would cripple our ability to speak up on the job. We thank the legislators who let workers’ voices rise above special interests’.”


that's right. The constitution describes treason as a capital offense.

Colluding with a foreign, adversarial government to undermine our most sacred national value, free and fair elections, is high treason.

This is serious and should be treated as such. The evidence is clear that contacts were made with Russian operatives during the election, that Russia hacked a candidate's emails and that of her party. That those hacks directly affected the outcome of the election. That Trump's campaign operatives had numerous illicit contacts with major governmental figures in the Kremlin.

So, to all my Conservative friends who believe in "Original Intent" of the Founding Fathers, here's their original intent for such a crime:


Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution:

Section 3.

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.

Trump has Divided the Muslim Ban into Two Groups of Countries

Majority Muslim countries in which Donald Trump, or his family members, have business interests, and those that don't.

<Snip> The executive order he signed Friday bars all entry for the next 90 days by travelers from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya. Excluded from the lists are several majority-Muslim nations where the Trump Organization is active and which in some cases have also faced troublesome issues with terrorism.<Snip>

<Snip>Trump’s order makes no mention of Turkey, which has faced several terrorist attacks in recent months. On Wednesday, the State Department updated a travel warning for Americans visiting Turkey, noting that “an increase in anti-American rhetoric has the potential to inspire independent actors to carry out acts of violence against US citizens.”

Trump has licensed his name to two luxury towers in Istanbul. A Turkish company also manufactures a line of Trump-branded home furnishings. Trump’s most recent financial disclosure, filed in May when he was a presidential candidate, showed that he had earned as much as $6 million in the previous year from the deals.

“I have a little conflict of interest ’cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul,” he said in a December 2015 interview with Breitbart News. More recently, he has insisted that he has no conflicts because laws making conflicts illegal do not apply to the president.

Also untouched by Friday’s executive order is the United Arab Emirates, a powerful Muslim ally with whom the United States nevertheless has complicated relations. Trump has licensed his name to a Dubai golf resort, as well as a luxury home development and spa. <Snip>

Maybe President Trump is Correct

Maybe there was massive voter fraud in the 2016 general election.

If that's the case, the election should be nullified and we should do it over again, making sure we get it right this time.

Donald Trump has Finally Spoken the Truth

I just finished watching and listening to President Trump's Inaugural Address.

When he said that he has spent the past 3 days writing that speech himself, I thought he was lying.

After listening to that address, I am sure he is telling the truth.

No other person who is literate in the English language, except Donald John Trump, could have possibly written such an empty, shallow, jingoistic, incoherent, narcissistic, egotistical, unintelligible and hypocritical pile of absolute stinking bull-shit than the speech I just heard come out of the mouth of the 45th President of the United States.
