I have my doubts about CNN

So I'm stuck over in Japan as the Doturd and his GOP lackeys further attempt to destroy our country. The headlines over here on CNN are all behind 45 and his awful ways. What you are seeing in the states is very different than what the rest of the world sees from CNN.

This pisses me off. Sorry for the language.

Moore says they are lying because they waited 40 years

Yet that is very normal for molestation victims, male and female. Look at what had happened with all the victims from the Catholic Church. Remember this when you go to the polls this week, and ask yourself if you are going to support a pedophile.

Where are the generals?

So where are those brave men in uniform who promised to keep Trump from doing stupid shit to our country. They seem to have placed their balls in the care of Putin just like the small handed vulgarian.

What is our Ass Clown doing today?

I'm over here in Japan (with a shitty apple keyboard) and since I'm across the International Date Line I'm wondering what has our orange Groper done today to embarrass us? it's about time he woke up and twitted his thoughts to us while on the krapper.

What does the world like about us?

I am in the Netherlands today and I had a long conversation with 6 people from Spain and France about "my country". I began with the statement that I did NOT vote for that jackass. After much discussion back and forth, it was decided that there are three great things about the US.
1. Our Constitution
2. Our Jazz
3. Our baseball. This one gathered the most discussion time. They are all passionate about baseball. Even the women.

It was a universal truth that our political system is corrupt, we all agreed to that. BTW, they all agreed the Macron is a POS. I was surprised to hear that, but they feel that he could not care at all for the common man.

So what do we like, and what are we willing to fight for? I hope it's more than baseball.

US leak of Manchester attacker's name strikes new blow to intelligence sharing

Source: The Guardian

American officials have been criticised for leaking the identity of the Manchester bomber before British police officially named him.

Salman Abedi was identified in media reports that attributed “US officials” as the source even as their British counterparts remained tight-lipped.

Manchester Arena bombing: thousands gather for vigil in city centre – live news
The disclosures renewed concerns over leaks from Donald Trump’s administration two weeks after the US president revealed classified information, apparently from Israel, to Russia’s foreign minister in a White House meeting. Critics warn that US allies may be less willing to share intelligence in the future.

Although UK journalists had Abedi’s name, the UK government and Greater Manchester police declined to confirm it more than two hours after it appeared in the US press. Earlier in the day, the government indicated it might not release the name at all on Tuesday because the investigation was continuing.

First Israel, and now England are rethinking how they share Intel with the US.

Trump impeachment Movement

Yes, we all want it to happen. However, until the GOP finds its morals and backbone and retrieves its testicles from 45, nothing will happen. We all beat the drum, but not a damn thing will happen. Ever. The Republican Party needs to own treason, pure and simple. However, they don't care and why should they? We have nothing to offer as a viable alternative.

The Liberals (us) need to do several things VERY SOON:
* Figure out what the hell we stand for
* What we won't tolerate
* Craft the message
* Send it out

Once we have a real alternative to the screwups that are running this country now, THEN we can begin the campaign to take back our land.

OK, so this seems like it's in the wrong place, but it's not. We are supposed to debunk right wing Trumpery here. I think we need to debunk our own messages as well. We need to closely examine our own propaganda and taste our Koolaid with discernment. IMO, we have no real alternative yet. It's in our hearts, and we all know it when we hear it in the messages from Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and others. Now we must come together and learn to craft, then articulate the Message.

Which clown is scarier? "It" or 45?

Discuss among yourselves...

Is the GOP leadership as stupid as they seem?

In Washington state we have Susan Hutchison as our GOP chair. She couldn't grasp the simplest truth, just keeps repeating the party line "DFT is great".

As long as we have folks like her in Republican leadership, our country will remain a laughingstock for the world.
