AP Explains: Why US militarization of border isn't new


Here's a look at how the U.S. has used the military and armed militias along the border:

"...SLAVERY AND CHINESE EXCLUSION..."

"...REVOLUTION AND REVOLT..."

"...IMMIGRATION AND DRUGS..."

I now believe Joe Biden will run for President in 2020.

I think he is so disgusted with TraitorTrump he will get into the race if, for no other reason, than to use his time taking TraitorTrump apart.

"Joe Biden slams White House over Trump aide's remark about John McCain's illness: Decency has 'hit rock bottom with this administration'"

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/11/joe-biden-rips-white-house-over-john-mccain-illness-joke.html

Don't piss off Joe!

If he runs, I will support him.

Please rec if you want to see Joe Biden run in 2020.

Understanding the Iran/nuclear deal

If you would like more info about the deal, and the likely consequences of TraitorTrump's decision, this article has a lot of info and links to various sources to check out.

The main thing I take from all is that America has lost the respect of the nations of the World. Who would ever trust any agreement made with the US again? Even our allies now understand America will not stand by our own agreements.

"...What is Trump's alternative, better plan?:

Nothing? Really?: Trump has never, on any occasion, laid out his vision for what the agreement should look like. As with Obamacare, he's been more than happy to point out the flaws in the current arrangement, but has been silent on viable alternatives. State Dept. officials admitted, off the record, that "We did not talk about a Plan B because we were focused on negotiating a supplemental agreement."..."...

Why you should set up Democratic candidates signs in even the reddest areas...

If there are more Democrats' signs up it can help to demoralize the republican't voters and encourage the Democratic voters.

The signs are a very visible way to show the country is in the process of having a "big Blue Wave".

They really do matter.

Just make sure you get plenty of signs and be ready to replace any that are torn down.

"Right-Wing Fringe Moves Center Stage"

"...In the past decade or so, as the GOP has tacked rightward, it's run some pretty fringy candidates for various offices. However, 2018 in shaping up to be the election that really takes the cake in terms of right-wing candidates who are outside the mainstream. Right Wing Watch has compiled a list of 12 of the fringiest:..."...

It is hard to believe in the year 2018 that so many of these backwards dumb-asses are serious contenders for political offices in America.

These backwards people are the ones who keep saying "we need to take our country back-(wards)".

John McCain, in the news,

I happened upon these three stories within a matter of a few minutes and believe they tell quite a bit about John McCain. So, I figured I would post them together so anyone who understands little about him can get some measure of this so-called, "maverick".

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"McCain says he regrets picking Palin as running mate"

http://thehill.com/homenews/news/386392-mccain-i-regret-picking-palin-as-my-vice-presidential-nominee

"...Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he regrets choosing former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) to be his running mate during the 2008 presidential campaign.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that McCain, while still defending Palin’s performance, said in his upcoming book “The Restless Wave” that he wishes he had instead selected former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.)

His advisers reportedly had warned against choosing Lieberman, who was once a Democrat, stating that Lieberman’s support of abortion rights could divide Republicans...."...


McCain is a notorious skirt-chaser from back to his days in school.

"Biden, McCain say Trump damaging US 'international reputation'"

http://thehill.com/homenews/news/386391-biden-mccain-say-trump-damaging-us-international-reputation

"...Former Vice President Joe Biden visited Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) at his Arizona ranch earlier this week as the senator is recovering from his brain cancer treatment, during which the two reportedly talked about how the international reputation of the U.S. is being damaged.

Biden recounted his visit in an interview with The New York Times, saying that McCain is, "still concerned about the state of the country,” Mr. Biden said in an interview. “We talked about how our international reputation is being damaged and we talked about the need for people to stand up and speak out.”..."...

The time has long passed that John McCain can make any difference speaking out about the level of stupidity the republican't party has been committed to.

From October 16, 2008

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/make-believe-maverick-20081016

"...Few politicians have so actively, or successfully, crafted their own myth of greatness. In McCain's version of his life, he is a prodigal son who, steeled by his brutal internment in Vietnam, learned to put "country first." Remade by the Keating Five scandal that nearly wrecked his career, the story goes, McCain re-emerged as a "reformer" and a "maverick," righteously eschewing anything that "might even tangentially be construed as a less than proper use of my office."

It's a myth McCain has cultivated throughout his decades in Washington. But during the course of this year's campaign, the mask has slipped. "Let's face it," says Larry Wilkerson, a retired Army colonel who served as chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell. "John McCain made his reputation on the fact that he doesn't bend his principles for politics. That's just not true."..."...

Question for your religious republican't friends/family:

After more than 3000 lies is your version of god so stupid as to still be forgiving TraitorTrump?

What part of "thou shalt not bear false witness" begins after someone lies thousands of times?

I worry for TraitorTrump...

...what if all of his lawyers get smart and quit on him, will the judge have to appoint a public defender to represent him?

Why should he be defended with my tax dollars? Take it out of Melania's shoe allowance.

How much will republican'ts whine about the sorry state of public defender offices where they are underpaid, understaffed, and overworked?

Campaign 2020 - "Poll: Warren, Biden top picks among New Hampshire Dems"

"...Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) edges Sen. Bernie Sanders in a Suffolk University poll asking New Hampshire Democrats to pick their favorite of seven possible candidates.

When Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who represents neighboring Massachusetts, is added to the list, she comes out on top with 26 percent, compared to 20 percent for Biden and 13 percent for Sanders.

Without Warren, Biden gets 30 percent support followed by Sanders with 25 percent...."...
