Here's the real "pay to play"

All the condemnation from the tRump camp towards Hillary about corruption via "pay to play". All that hot air and here it is...that actual pay to play President.

Where are the questions from the M$M??

This is dangerous for our country.



Further evidence that it could be impossible for the president-elect to disconnect himself from his foreign businesses comes from a key diplomatic appointment that Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte made days before Trumpís election victory. Duterte announced that Jose E.B. Antonio would be the countryís envoy to Washington, D.C., for trade and investment. Antonio, chairman of Century Properties Group, is Trumpís business partner in the Philippines. His business is currently building the 57-story Trump Tower at Century City in the capital Manila.

For countries and foreign leaders more used to a corrupt government environment, there will be numerous opportunities to curry favor with the incoming president through his businesses. Trumpís business empire is already courting them for profit.

The Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., hosted an informative session for foreign diplomats this past week explaining how these dignitaries could rent rooms during a Trump presidency, according to The Washington Post. This would, in effect, involve foreign governments putting money directly into the presidentís pocket while diplomats visited Washington, D.C., to conduct official business.

Are we witnessing the beginning of the end?

With a tRump administration I fear for our national security but most of all the world's.

I fell asleep last night thinking of the real possibility of what a reactionary tRump administration could do with nuclear weapons and the chain reaction that would produce.

I do not think I'm being paranoid.
I refuse to hide my head in the sand.

If there is an after-life. If there is something after this then I hope the direction of my soul is sufficient enough to propel me millions of light years away from these hateful violent beings I barely recognize anymore.

Glenn Greenwald wrote me back

I wrote every author of this article this response:

I'm a "BernieCrat" and I did not vote my conscience. I did what was right for my country and voted for her. The "my conscience" meme is a very selfish one considering the threat we faced and now must live with.
Yeah she's hawkish and corporate I get that but Trump... WTF!!??!!

You purity-test lefties helped usher in tRump with your encouraging of others to not vote for her and no amount of Hillary bashing will wash that blood and stench off your hands.

Here's his response:



Here's my reply:



We now have Sandy Hook deniers

At high levels within the upcoming administration.

Let that sink in.

The way they've treated Hillary these last 25 years

No wonder the GOPiggies are running to the Rooskies for their dirt.
They fear her and rightly so.

Let's give her the Senate as her judicial hammer.
A changing of the guard.
Let's chase these piggies to prison where they belong.

I hope they are sweating anticipating a payback.

Private interests vs. our Public interests

Regarding the oppression at Standing Rock

Law enforcement seems to go out of its way to defend private big $$$ interests yet defending public property interests draws a tepid response.

I submit the Bundy Klan as examples in Nevada and Oregon where armed occupation was met with a "wait and see" attitude. Even in the face of weapons turned on government officials in Nevada and weapons brought on to, followed by vandalism of federal property at, the Malhuer Wildlife Preserve in Oregon.

And in contrast, at Standing Rock (along with the Occupy Movement and BLM) we see an aggressive militarized response.

This country needs a lot of turning around. It's priorities are so screwed up.

....

Okay here's what will happen election night

As much as the media (and now the FBI apparently) want this to be a horse race... it's not.

This will be a very lopsided victory for the Democrats both at the Presidential and Senate levels.

Gains in the House by Democrats, over moderate Repubs, will render it a squakbox of teahadists that Ryan must deal with...LOL...good luck with that Paul.

Yeah...GOTV of course.
No popping of corks yet.
But...she's got this.

CNN Dumped Donna Brazile

A broader look at phony TV "news".


CNN Dumped Donna Brazile. It Should Keep Going.

TV hires these people and their ilk not for their spellbinding political insights but because theyíre known quantities who will provide safe and predictable idle talk. By dividing their partisan contributors between Republicans and Democrats, TV creates the illusion of impartiality and inclusion.
