Christians, the NRA and Russia...true love.

I just looked through my old bookmarks and found a lot about the NRA and Russia. This is the one I was looking for though, it involves the Christian Right. I hope Mueller is looking into this too. Maybe this is where Pence comes in too.

'I can't breathe.' Jamal Khashoggi's last words disclosed in transcript, source says

Source: CNN

CNN)"I can't breathe." These were the final words uttered by Jamal Khashoggi after he was set upon by a Saudi hit squad at the country's consulate in Istanbul, according to a source briefed on the investigation into the killing of the Washington Post columnist.

The transcript begins at the moment Khashoggi enters the Saudi consulate in a quiet residential district of Istanbul at lunchtime on October 2.

The transcript notes the noises that can be heard on the tape, almost in the manner that subtitles describe moments in movies where there is no dialogue.
"Scream.""Scream.""Gasping."Then, the transcript notes other descriptions."Saw.""Cutting."

But the lasting conclusion the source drew from the transcript is that Khashoggi's killing was a planned assassination by an organized team that carried out its job with ruthless efficiency, keeping someone in Riyadh informed at each step.

The US entered WW2 after Japan attacked. Russia attacked our

country through cyber warfare and hacking our elections which is the key to our democracy and the democratic process. When this is finally proven beyond a doubt will our country retaliate? If so how? Through more sanctions?

Does the US punish Putin and Russia for their crimes

against our democratic process through cyber warfare when this whole conspiracy by tRump and Putin and the treasonous acts is confirmed by our government eventually? When it is all wrapped up and it is proven do we just impose more sanctions? Do we punish them publicly or will the govt do it behind closed doors?

After this is all over do you think his cult will admit

they believed a criminal and be somewhat embarrassed or will they dig in and support him forever (like Stone loves Nixon still)? Also, will you forgive those that were mean to you when you told them he was a criminal all along if they say they admit they were wrong?

I know only one ex-friend (she crossed me off of her list last Christmas) and I doubt she will admit she was ever wrong and if she did I still would not want her for a friend since now I am fully aware that she is a hate filled racist, etc.

"This is the beginning of impeachment".

"Impeachable offenses will be investigated", Rep Garamendi is saying on CNN right now as well as "high crimes and misdemeanors, emoluments, etc".

Cox wins making Dems likely to pick up 40 seats in the House.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/06/us/politics/tj-cox-california-david-valadao.html

"It seemed that things could hardly get much worse for California Republicans.

But on Thursday, the party conceded a seventh congressional seat in California, as Democrats completed a clean sweep of all the Republican-held seats in California districts where Hillary Clinton had defeated President Trump. Democrats are now likely to take 40 seats from Republicans as they decisively capture control of Congress

David Valadao, a Republican who has represented Central California since 2013 — and won re-election in 2016 with a sturdy 57 percent of the vote — was defeated by T.J. Cox, an engineer making a second bid for Congress. “Representing the Central Valley in Congress has been the honor of a lifetime,” Mr. Valadao said in his concession statement."

CNN says the Dems had a blue tsunami.
