About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

His worst nightmare: Trump's life under a legal microscope: CNN, Stephen Collinson

Analysis by Stephen Collinson, CNN

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Days of court filings, flipped witnesses, damaging disclosures and sentencing hearings over the last month have delivered blows that appear to expose Trump and key associates to deep legal and political jeopardy.

But the head-spinning volume of material being churned out by special counsel Robert Mueller and other jurisdictions often also blurs the bigger picture of a presidency beset by a span of scandal that is staggering in its breadth.

Simply put, Trump's campaign, transition, inaugural committee and presidency are now under active criminal investigation. His business -- the Trump Organization -- and his defunct charity -- The Trump Foundation are also under investigation (the charity investigation is a civil one). His college -- Trump University -- has already been deemed a fraud.

Powerful arrogance in Trump gang. The kind that investigators love to catch and put away...

No, I have no inside info on this. But my guess, and those who know investigators and detectives can verify or refute, that those are the prizes. The investigators capture, try and convict the arrogant types who think they can never be caught. Their thinking is that we are above the law, and you can't get me, and they add FU to the investigators..with this addition, ... "You cannot prove anything.."

So a lot of us are on the investigators side no matter who they are looking for. In addition the head of the gang is the top bully around. The higher up they are, the harder they fall. So when someone investigates for months on end, with the help of a great team, we often wonder...what keeps them going. I think the prize in putting the arrogant bullies in this gang away, is the answer as to why Mueller's team works so hard, and will get them all in end..And he doesn't have to say anything. Actions speak louder than any words he will or can say to the media.

What will Johnson and Johson do about the "Asbesetos Baby Powder Scandal"?

1.Lie outright and say the evidence is false, just like other people often do, or 2. Stand up and tell what is the truth. We knew and did nothing for whatever reason. What is it going to be?..

Yes, Michigan State had people who knew about the Nassar scandal, most are gone. I saw in the news that a few months ago, Michigan State has agreed to pay out $500,000,000 to settle law suits. Other law suits are moving forward. Nassar sexually molested dozens if not hundreds of students during his tenure as doctor at MSU.

..Johnson and Johnson has already started to follow course #1. But the higher ups got to make the decision. Just like MSU has made a decision and just like Trump has already decided about the "truth" and "lies." Johnson and Johnson has got to make a decision. That will be made by the CEO and the Board of Directors, and some other higher ups. It looks like some people in the company knew that asbestos was in baby powder and kept it quiet. The stock tanked 10 percent today.

That company's reputation has been outstanding. Their products haven't caused problems for years. People have been purchasing their Baking Soda for decades along with the baby powder and other household products. It will be interesting to see what they do. This is a new scandal that came out the last few days. But, according to some reports there has been evidence of the asbestos in baby powder for many years. Will Johnson and Johnson..."Tell the Truth" or "Tell a Lie?." The future is uncertain on this one. I will admit that I don't have a clue on this.

Who was John Mitchell?..Do you know? It seems like...Micheal Cohen is John Mitchell..

Is Michael Cohen a reincarnation of John Mitchell?? Yes, in some ways they look alike..

John Newton Mitchell (September 15, 1913 November 9, 1988) was the 67th Attorney General of the United States (19691972) under President Richard Nixon. Prior to that, he had been a municipal bond lawyer, director of Nixon's 1968 presidential campaign, and one of Nixon's closest personal friends.

After his tenure as U.S. Attorney General, he served as director of Nixon's 1972 presidential campaign. Due to multiple crimes he committed in the Watergate affair, Mitchell was sentenced to prison in 1977 and served 19 months.

...top friend of Nixon...19 months
...top friend of Trump..36 months.

........................of course....John Mitchel was the top law enforcement office of the U.S.A. and he
served 19 months in prison.
Somehow the movie looks like a re-run. But of course it isn't. This one is updated, and new. It contains info that the other one did not have. Like another nation involved. Lot's of spies and lots of new crooks and games. Yes, Nixon did not involve his children, but that is, as some game players and movie goers say, "a minor issue." When does Trump say, "I am not a crook?"...oh...he said it already..May have missed that part of the movie..I am somewhat ..older now. I may have slept through that part of the movie...sorry...

About the "Wall" video, 16 minutes, why this is important.

Here is a link to this conversation. It is up in "Video and Multimedia" forum. It was posted there today by
erpowers at 2:03 pm. ET. If you have not seen it, hit the link..16 minutes.

So, this might seem to be about a wall....but it is really about Donald Trump, trying to impose his will on people that he cannot impose his will on. Donald doesn't seem to listen very well. I didn't get the feeling he was listening to anything anyone else said. And that is what Donald did today. He proved he doesn't wait and doesn't listen to those he is having a conversation (theoretically) with. He doesn't even try to listen.

It is a conversation with himself for all to see. Interruption after interruption after interruption.
And that is very important. Showing all in the U.S.A., the conversation is only with him and himself and no one else. That is what we see.

Yes, there are about 25 to 30 percent in the U.S.A. who will not listen to anyone. They are Donald's followers. The week Nixon was thrown out of office, 27 percent believed they supported him.. So, with Donald, it will be 25 percent. That means that 75 percent in the end, will not support " Donald the Wall".

Why is it important now? Because even on live national TV, in front of millions, he will not listen to anyone in an important conversation. If 75 percent of the country see "Donald the Wall" as a selfish person who will not even listen on live TV in front of million, then that 75 percent will conclude that he should not be President of the United States of America.

Most of us are very reasonable. We listen even if we do not agree. To family, friends, fellow workers, bosses, teachers, fellow students, people we are in charge of..and so on. We know how important that is. Not Donald the Wall. He is above that, and he does not need to listen. When honest and reasonable people see this, they will know that even on live TV in front of millions of fellow citizens, Donald the Wall, will not listen. He has got to interrupt and always boss everyone...

"Donald the Wall" may not have lost the argument. But he did loose the respect of a number of .."fence sitters." Yes, there are many who still aren't sure about "Donald the Wall" As this makes the rounds, I do think that many "fence sitters" will get off the fence and say.."What an asshole, look how he interrupted the lady." I know that is hard to believe. But I think that Donald's disrespect on this 15 minute video could help this country to decide in the end..."Boy he is nuts, and he is totally disrespectful to others." "He should not be the President, and he needs to be removed.

Finally, I think that someone could see that truth with seeing only 10 minutes of this video. That is very good. Many in this country cannot watch more than 10 minutes without a break. Thanks for reading this...

NYC cops rip 1 year old child from mother's arms..(warning: hard to watch)

CNN description of event:
CNN link:
https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/10/us/nypd-mother-child-video/index.html
Happened on Friday, Dec 7..........

With a crowd of onlookers gathered around, New York Police officers encircle a woman and her child on the ground.
One officer reaches down and begins to pull. The officer yanks harder, and harder, and the woman's cries become louder.
"You're hurting my son! You're hurting my son!" she yells.
A tug of war ensues, and as noise from the horrified crowd builds, an officer brandishes a yellow stun gun and begins to point it around the room, a government welfare office in Brookly

The stunning and hectic scene, captured on video and posted to Facebook, ends with the woman in handcuffs escorted from the scene -- and her 1-year-old son elsewhere........riversedge also posted this earlier today (5:38pm ET) in general discussion at this link

Is it "Dragnet" or "Super Bowl 99"? Which TV show is it?

Is the current situation with Mr. Trump the TV show "Dragnet" or a "Super Bowl" game? Dragnet was a TV show with a pair of policemen who always captured the criminal. The leader was an officer named Sargent Friday. Sargent Friday had years of experience in capturing all kinds of criminals. Once in a great while there was some kind of variation of this. Nevertheless, we knew how it was going to end. The criminal would be captured and sentenced, and we would always see that sentence at the end of the show.

..Super Bowl is a game that we do not know the end. Anything can happen and the game goes into extra sessions if necessary. There is no special pattern and no predictable end. Sometimes the game is totally one sided, and other times it is so close that nobody knows how it will end. And the show could go on a lot longer than anyone would expect. Also, no one knows the winner ahead of time.

My opinion is, it is "Dragnet." While any thing could happen in some aspects of the case, I believe the question is not if Mr. Trump will be found guilty, but what type of crime and when will he be found guilty. Will the show continue a few weeks, or months? In the end, I think Mr. Trump will be found guilty, and the sentence for him and his gang will be totally announced. Some of the announcements have already been made, but others are to be determined. And this officer, Mr. Mueller, like Sargent Friday, will get the whole gang. Also, like Sargent Friday, Mr. Mueller has plenty of experience in capturing criminals and gangs. This is not his first program.

Patience. Who will win ? Trump or Mueller?

1. As we look at the conflict, we need to ask, who is smarter? Trump or Mueller?
2. More important. Who has more experience at what he is currently doing?
3. Who has a smarter and more experienced team right now?
4. Which individual has more patience, and which has the ability to look beyond the current
issues to see the entire picture? Who is most likely to win this? Who has the ability to focus on
doing one job at a time, and is not sidetracked by phony issues?
5. Who do you think is most dedicated to finding a fair solution to this problem?
6. Who do you think will win?

Patience.. I believe the smarter, more experienced individual and that individual's team will win. Mueller is dedicated to this job and has accomplished part of the job, and that part is over. People very close to Trump have been indicted, convicted and awaiting sentence. The report will be out soon. Patience. Why? I think we know the answers to the above questions, and what is likely to happen. If Mueller has patience, then we must have it too.

Do you think that Trump knows what is coming for his family and himself?

From Mueller and the Justice Department? And NY State Justice Department?
The man who always saved him, was recommended today for 4 years in Jail..(judge will determine final sentence.)


What now for Trump & family?

Rex Tillerson Just Exposed Trump's Greates Weakness: CNN, Analysis by Chris Cillizza

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/07/politics/donald-trump-rex-tillerson/index.html:

Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large
Updated 3:12 PM ET, Fri December 7, 2018
_________________________________________________________________________________________
(CNN) Since being fired by President Donald Trump as secretary of state, Rex Tillerson has kept a very low profile. But on Thursday night in Houston, Tillerson broke that silence in a big way.

Here's how he described the "why" behind the breakdown of his relationship with the President, according to the Houston Chronicle:

"So often, the President would say here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it and I would have to say to him, Mr. President I understand what you want to do but you can't do it that way. It violates the law."

The President of the United States would tell the secretary of state how he wanted things done and the secretary of state would have to tell him it couldn't be done the way he wanted because that was illegal?

What's scary about Tillerson's admission? A few things.

1) Trump either doesn't know the law or doesn't care about the law

2) This isn't the first time we've heard of this sort of I-am-the-law, Judge Dredd-like behavior from the President.
