At this moment Trump is taking credit for peace between Israel and UAE

Were they at war?

Trump is rambling again

I'll be so glad when this asshole is not president anymore.

Did the Trump administration enable a "pump and dump" with our tax dollars?

A "Pump-and-dump" is a scheme that artificially boosts the price of a stock long enough for the stock owners to dump their stock at a higher price.

From https://billmoyers.com/story/a-terrible-kodak-moment/

"The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is investigating potential insider trading over the late July launch of Kodak Pharmaceuticals, a new branch of the old camera and film company intended to begin the process of bringing the production of drugs back to the United States.

Under the Defense Production Act, the Trump administration provided a $765 million loan to support the launch of Kodak Pharmaceuticals. The deal shot Kodak stock upward by more than 2,757%. But there was suspicious activity around this deal. The day before Trump’s announcement of it, the Eastman Kodak Company gave its CEO, Jim Continenza, 1.75 million stock options. Indeed, since May, when talks with the administration about manufacturing the ingredients for pharmaceuticals began, Kodak handed out 240,000 stock options to board members.

Kodak says the timing of the options was a coincidence: the board’s compensation committee meeting happened to fall on the day before the announcement. When asked by a reporter about what had happened at Kodak, Trump says he “wasn’t involved in the deal.” This afternoon, the co-director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement Steve Peikin announced he is stepping down. He did not give a reason."

There's a friggin' Trump MAGA ad in my email that won't delete!

Every other piece of mail in my inbox has a box you can check to delete, but not this f%#$ing Trump ad! Anyone know how to delete something in Yahoo mail that doesn't have a check box? I can hide it but it comes back the very next time I open my mail. I hate Trump!

For any Obama haters that might be lurking, especially if your name is Sean Hannity

I kept my doctor and my plan! Got that? And, my family saved at least $2,500 dollars a year because two of my sons were able to remain on my insurance until they were 26. So shut up about the only thing you think Obama lied about, because he didn't lie.

Shouldn't this be the time Trump starts firing people?

Somebody didn't brief Trump on Russia putting bounties on our troops! Where's the outrage? Who didn't tell him and why? Trump should be getting to the bottom of this!

Ok, so now that Trump has denied being briefed, what's next?

Is he going to do anything to punish Putin, or is he just going to deny he knew about it and continue to do nothing? He can't get away with not knowing at this point. Everyone knows, and now can see how he will handle it. My guess is he'll find some way to ignore it, and his die hard followers will too.

Has anyone else here ever experienced this from a right-winger?

Ever get a right- winger that thinks they're so smart when they point out the U.S is a republic?

It usually comes up when a Democrat or liberal says something about "our democracy". I hear callers to my local radio station complaining that "libtards" don't know we are under a republic.

If you ever want to stop one of these geniuses in their tracks, see what happens when you inform them that China and North Korea are also republics. And, just for fun I like to throw in the fact that the "R" in U.S.S.R stood for republic also. See the expression on their face go blank.

This has happened to me several times, and so far I have found not one of them that are aware of this fact. It seems to be something they parrot without giving thought to.

If you're lucky you might be able to to explain to them how "democracy" fits in here in America where it doesn't in those other republics. That is if you can get them to listen instead of just blurting out their talking points. Good luck out there.

How are these idiot republicans getting away with disrupting the hearing on Barr?

We are in a bad place in this country

An Attorney General working for a president can destroy Democracy. All he or she has to do is let the president's henchmen go free by dropping their cases. We need the republicans to pull their heads out of the their collective ass and join us in trying to save this country. I doubt they ever will, and that's what scares me the most.
