Watching 45 board plane for NY to talk about MS-13.

My thoughts were, Why does the media continue to give this ignorant, fascist, psychopath a forum to spew his lies?

It may be time for a citizens march and protest of the US President.

He is usurping our democracy. The majority of the voters DID NOT vote for him to begin with. And these words ring in my mind:

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present [President of the United States] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world."

It's time people. If there ever was a time, it's now, I believe. Waiting until November will be too late. Surely after November, if that election is subjected to the same interference as the election of 2016, it will be too late. I look at the gap that is closing between the generic ballot of the Democrats and the GOP and it sends shivers down my spine. I am more fearful for my country than I was during the attacks on minorities and Jews and the assassinations during the 60's.

If you are a parent of a black or Hispanic child you are feeling what I am feeling tho you may be keeping the feelings in check. History proves that our feelings are harbingers of things to come if we do nothing.

This is why I hate that the media keeps reporting on Trump and his attacks against Russian probe

Watch this video and the two or three succeeding videos and try to understand what is happening to us because of the unrelenting reporting of whatever Trump says. The media keeps putting Trump's opinion about the probe into the atmosphere. We are being manipulated (not necessarily us here but others out there) to receive the messages that something is wrong about the Russian probe and many cannot recognize how they are being manipulated.

I would much rather we kept throwing into the atmosphere the remarkable movement by generation next about gun reform and getting Congress to do something about the incessant access to weapons among our citizens. Or talk about the environmental violence being done by our industries or the tax scam and how people are hurting out there because this administration as screwed up Obamacare.

This kind of coverage by the media is exactly what helped Trump get elected...wall to wall coverage of his hateful, racist, misogynistic, and xenophobic tweets and rallies. All that nastiness was thrown out into atmosphere and took up the space that should have been filled by the Democratic platform and HRC's messages about the economy, education, revitalizing the rust belt, and healthcare. It's happening all over again and by the time November gets here, 70% of the voting population will believe that Mueller is an evil monster actually conducting an illegal and unfair witch hunt against Trump. Of course, one expects FOX to give constant coverage of Trump and his fake allegations, but CNN and MSNBC should cover the main points of what is happening with the Mueller investigation. Trump loves the coverage and his handlers know exactly what they are doing.

Can the Justice Department be moved under the SCOTUS?

Appeasing Trump is no guarantee that you won't be fired, Rod.

Another question: Can an outed FBI agent sue a member of Congress for endangering his or her life and the lives of his or her family?

I believe I understand why Rod Rosenstein is making the decisions he is making to appease Trump.

He simply does not trust the Trump SCOTUS.

This stuff is definite headed toward the SCOTUS at some point. We cannot trust the conservatives to abide by the Constitution but make all kinds of efforts to protect Trump...just like they protected Bush.

We are in serious trouble.

Watching Rachel and recalling the outrage by the GOP when Bill Clinton drop by to see Loretta Lynch

on the tarmac.

Where is the outrage now when Trump summons the DOJ FBI head to the WH to discuss the ongoing investigation of himself and his administration?

Why isn't ALL the media screaming about this? It's because FOX is not screaming about this. Sad to say, but FOX has been setting the tone for all the media coverage of Trump. No one is talking about the hypocrisy of the media covering Trump vs Clinton (both of them) or Trump vs Obama.

When will FOX allow someone from the other side tell the FOX viewers what they are missing as far as truth is concerned.

Who needs Mueller when we have Rachel?

If Trump continues to bad-mouth his media and other corporate "enemies" he's dumber than I thought.

So where is Judicial Watch now that they can have open and shut cases against politicos?

Are they still chasing after the Clintons and Obamas? They have almost no discovery to do with all the Trumpian real corruption and scandals out there.

Not a word.

How do our allies look at Trump receiving 500M from China while asking them to sanction NK and Iran?

We must be living in the twilight zone?

Trump is asking more of our allies and our enemies than he is willing to ask of himself and the US. It appears as though Trump puts his person interests above even those of the US.

If the rest of the world decided to help NK and Iran economically for agreements to never use nukes against them maybe the majority of the problems of the world would be mitigated. People become friendly and support those who support them.
