About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Journal Archives

It looks and smells like Watergate.

Why? There is always something new coming out. Some of it directly affects or is connected to the President, while some of it isn't. Many people talked to the President about this and that. Nixon had a history of lying, and so does Trump. I recall so clearly Nixon saying something to the effect that he was quitting politics, something like, "your not going to kick me around anymore. ...and a few years later he was elected President.

Nixon had a long history of lying and attacking enemies in ruthless ways. Helen Douglas ran against Nixon and Nixon demonized her. So Trump does the same thing. Makes up lies about people, and is vicious in his language. The more he is attacked, the worse he gets.

Both Nixon and Trump are especially arrogant, thinking they can get away with "anything.' Nixon's lies and actions before the 68 election are close to treason. Trump also seams or appears to have actions which, if we look at objectively, could be treason: working with outside countries to prevent an opponent's election.

And like Nixon, there is a special prosecutor who will probably (we do not know yet) uncover all the dirt. (sooner or later) Also, there is a sideshow of who talked to who, how, why, and when . But in the end, it was Nixon's actions which did him in. Something about hidden tape recordings and who said what and when. Nixon claims he never said certain things, which it came out later, he most likely did say.

Did Trump have dealings with a foreign country to help win an election? Oh, Trump says no. But there is so much circumstantial evidence that his closest relatives (his sons) did indeed have conversations with members of foreign countries. about what?..no one knows. (adoptions?..not likely from my viewpoint)

And the media is involved too, as it was for Nixon. Many similarities. And many differences. But there is one very similar point. Time will eventually tell the truth. It does look like it will all come out, at some point. Why? because people are talking behind the scenes, and some already have been indicted, and like Nixon those indictments can as they say.."go up the ladder to the top"

I don't know what is going to happen. Yet the similarities are striking. I didn't want to believe Nixon was behind the whole thing. But he was. (I always thought he was crooked, but all of that?..yes all of that.) It seems very similar. We will see. Sooner or later, we will know the truth . But, I hope it is sooner rather than later.

Let's look at this by asking 3 simple questions:

1. Is Trump good at staying out of trouble?
2. Is Mueller good at prosecuting?
3. Is Mueller better at prosecuting than Trump staying out of trouble?

Trump has declared bankruptcy a number of times.
Trump has refused to pay people who worked for him, a number of times.
Trump lies and brags about what he wants and gets..no matter what.
Trump gets in trouble and buys his way out, or gets a lawyer to "take care of it"
____________________________________________________________________________
Trump gets in trouble, but manages to con or buy out. or declare bankruptcy.

Yes, Mueller is good at prosecuting, criminal issues, and he has some of the best help available. That has been his life's work..
__________________________________________________________________________________

Trump is already in criminal trouble, but he can't buy his way out of this. He cannot lie his way out of this.
.....this is not the kind of trouble that one can buy their way out of.
Also, Mueller is taking his time to get absolute proof that Trump has committed criminal behavior..And his crowd has committed criminal behavior. (you may define his crowd)
Mueller will get enough proof to indict the crowd, and implicate Trump as a law breaker even if he cannot be charged. (maybe he will be charged??)
_____________________________________________________________________________________
Why? Mueller is much better at what he does, than Trump is at staying out of "criminal trouble" Trump doesn't even know what that is, and Mueller certainly does, since that has been his life's work.
Mueller is motivated too, and this is mighty big. Trump's lies are mighty big. Nevertheless, Mueller is going to find the truth, even if Trump is going to lie.. Trump may have implicated himself in a tweet yesterday. I do not know, but Mueller does. Trump is up against someone who will get him. Trump may fire Mueller, but that will not end it. I believe Trump will go down. far down. Yes, it will take some time, but the proof, when everyone sees it, will be iron clad and non refutable. Trump is up against far more than he can imagine. As is his crowd. And we will see, and the proof will be clear to everyone.

A simple way people can protest against Trump: elections

At the ballot box. Elections will tell. We will see if this is correct.

Total and Complete Arrogance of Nixon and Trump

Total and complete arrogance of Nixon and Trump

Nixon thought he could get away with anything. He was survivor and skilled at coming back. . In 72, Nixon won an overwhelming election against McGovern. McGovern won one state, Massachusetts. Because of that, Nixon's attitude clearly was. " I can get away with anything" It doesn't matter if we cover up, lie, steal or whatever. He was going to come out ok no matter what. And he would take care of things.. So there was an investigation, and he fired the investigator. Congress got another investigator. Toward the end, Nixon finally realized he was going to be impeached, and it was written that he started going nuts with that realization.

Trump thinks he can get away with anything too. He has always survived lawsuits, bankruptcy, divorce, mouthing off about grabbing women and so on. In his view, he knows it all. Look at what he has done, he thinks. He, like Nixon, doesn't realize he can't fake it in this job. Yes, he can lie all he wants and he can tweet all he wants, but the tweets are very dangerous as are the lies.

As in the case of Nixon, Trump's total arrogance allows him to overlook obvious dangers. I am sure he has been told to stop the tweeting, but he can control it all .."Don't worry" he thinks. I am the boss and I can pardon anyone. "I can get away with anything." That is it.

If Nixon thought he could erase the key tape, he wasn't worried, he would survive and continue to be President. If Nixon's crowd would lie to protect him, he and the crowd could get away with it. Nixon surly thought he was going to get away with it, and so would those who supported him (he was totally wrong, many ended up with jail terms for lying)

Trump has that exact same attitude. For whatever reason, his arrogance is above everything. I am the most intelligent, and the "favorite" of all. I can tweet all I want. I can say almost anything. I can consult with whoever I want, and so can my crowd.. My crowd will protect me and I can get away with it. But he won't, just like Nixon. Mueller will get him and if Mueller doesn't, then it will be someone else. Why? Because Mueller's team is good at getting irrefutable evidence. That is what has been going on for months. Evidence that will convict the crowd. So strong that once it has been assembled, prosecutions and convictions are almost definite. Why? Well, Mueller and his team, those who he has hired on, are the very best around in separate fields of investigation and prosecution. In my opinion, Trump hasn't got a chance. Trump is clueless as to the enormity of the effort. And when the indictments come. , it will be exactly the same as Watergate. The crowd will go to jail. (or threatened to go to jail) Their guilt will be obvious to all, and Trump will face impeachment as Nixon did. Why do I say that?

Trump's arrogance will keep him from seeing the truth. His experience in getting away in the past, unhurt, will keep him from seeing the game. He is now, "President of the United States." He cheated and got away with that..pretty good..eh?
. His arrogance has kept him from knowing the opposition and the setting. This isn't a TV show, this is the World Series. He is very far behind..The evidence is being accumulated and verified as this is written. The evidence will be destroy Trump and his crowd. As it destroyed Nixon. Trump is up against the very best, and Trump will lose to the very best.. When? That will become clear when it happens, and I hope we will all be around to witness it, just like Nixon.

Women Will Decide the Alabama Senator Election in December

Whatever Moore and his patsies say won't matter. It is up to the women to decide. The women will know who is telling the truth, and who is lying. They already know. It is a story where the answer is simple: Who Do You Believe.?

No matter what political party, or where the election is, or the day or the time, women have babies. Women love their babies. That is part of the human race. Alabama women can decide one way or another. Here is the answer: When one lady in Alabama talks to another lady in Alabama, and they talk about it, the question is: "Who do you believe?" :The man who is accused of illegal sexual activity with a 14 year old and other teenagers, or, the women who had the courage to come forward and tell their stories.

If women come out to vote, the women in Alabama will decide. It is pretty simple, babies who grow to be teenagers, are far more important than some man claiming "It's all a lie by some northeaster liberal newspaper"

If the women come out and vote, it is over now. If the women do not come out and vote, then there is a chance the man calling the accusers liars could win. We will see on December 12.

The NRA Rule: The NRA says there there will be no disscussion for at least 5 days about guns

and assult rifles after an .."event" Why? Because discussion at this time of grief is not giving respect to those that died and were injured..... Is this possible?

The NRA never breaks the rule out of respect for the dead and injured.., and no one else should break the "rule" Too early to discuss this...
. It doesn't matter what happened, the rule states , no discussion for at least 5 days after an event. You will not hear from them or those that support them for at least 5 days. It is what the NRA did in the past, will do now, and will always do...
(after 5 days..things calm down the NRA, and the U.S.A can go back to "business as usual" .. selling guns and killing more people..)
PLEASE READ BELOW...VERY IMPORTANT....

Now, I want say right here, I made this up...I don't know of any such rule..I have never heard of any such rule..I haven't got a clue...

But I must say, after many years of watching the NRA respond to such "events", it seems that this is their unwritten rule. And in general, they seem to always follow it. Will the NRA and its followers abide by this made up rule?....
.........We will soon see.......................



I don't think Trump has a single "clue" as to what he is up against.

His thinking is so clouded by "self involvement" that he cannot see where he is at.

He is up against one of the finest prosecutors and investigators in the entire country. In areas that he is not familiar with, that person, Mueller, has obtained the best in those areas. Not just the best, but some of the most experienced in getting who they are after..and have gotten those they are after..

Because of that one short paragraph, Trump's strategy must fail. Your words also stand out:

Trump will keep using his tricks, Mueller will keep investigating and in the end truth and justice will have the last word

His strategy must fail, because that strategy is built on a foundation of lies. Criminal investigation is built on the truth. If Trump has committed crimes, Mueller and his team of investigators and prosecutors will uncover those crimes. If Trumps team of liars and shakers has committed crimes, that team will be tried and convicted One of them, has already coped a plea. Why would he do that? Because the evidence of conviction was so convincing that that is what a person does in that situation.

Trump really doesn't have a clue. He is up against an outstanding team of prosecutors and investigators. Trump's team is full of arrogance and the belief that they can get away with "anything"..(as Trump did) Trump's team cannot spin the truth. After indictments, there will be convictions and "pleas"..Trump's team will go down, just as Nixon's team went down. Trump will resign, just as Nixon resigned. If Trump thinks he can "bully" Mueller and who replaces him if fired..then Trump stupidity and arrogance is as great as Nixons. And Trump will end up just like Nixon. Totally humiliated and isolated.

It will come down to this: "Lies, Lies, and More Lies"

As a society are we willing to accept all these lies from our leaders. That is what it will ultimately come down to.
If Trump and his people lie most the time, is that what we want?..As a society and as a nation?

You can't lie to the FBI, because that is a respected police organization. That is illegal.
But you can lie to your best friend..if you want.

Raising children, Do you want your 3 year old lie to you?
We teach our children not to lie. Is that important?
Does the U.S.A want to be known as a lying country with lying leaders that cannot be trusted?

Lying Sara is a reflection of Lying Trump. All lies. It comes down to this: Do we want to be known for our lies, or the good things that we do? Trump lies so much it seems he doesn't know the difference between truth and a lie. Is that what we want as a society? Is that what we want our children to become?

"It is ok my child, lie whenever you want to and for any reason. It is ok to lie my child. "

Are those two sentences what we really want for our future?..One last idea: I recall reading about one of our past leaders. He was a great man and faced great problems for our nation. One of his characteristics was that he was "honest" In fact, after awhile, this fellow became known as "Honest Abe" Isn't that what we want for our children and our society? Leadership that is honest. To me, that is very important. I know that it is not important to Trump. I surely hope that "honesty" wins over "lying most the time"

Yes, Next federal election, is 12 months away. We will unite and win!!!

Yes, we have worked together before, and we will do so again... We will take back the House of Representatives and the Senate. Yes.!!!

Bush Jr...never to be resurrected...NEVER.. Bush Jr. is evil incarnate. Never forget that.

Yes Trump is bad, hostile, mean, nuts, or whatever. Never compare him to Bush Jr. Bush Jr. was responsible for the Iraq War that killed tens of thousands and destroyed communities and social systems beyond any recognition.

Following information from Wikipedia at the link below:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casualties_of_the_Iraq_War
_________________________________________________________________________________________
Estimates of the casualties from the conflict in Iraq since 2003 (beginning with the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, and the ensuing occupation and insurgency) have come in many forms, and the accuracy of the information available on different types of Iraq War casualties varies greatly.

Credible estimates of Iraq War casualties range from 110,000 to 460,000.[1] Other highly disputed estimates, such as the 2006 Lancet study, and the 2007 Opinion Research Business survey, put the numbers as high as 650,000 and 1.2 million respectively.
'
Hit the link above to see more, but here is the total of U.S service people, least we forget:

As of June 29, 2016, according to the U.S. Department of Defense casualty website, there were 4,424 total deaths (including both killed in action and non-hostile) and 31,952 wounded in action (WIA) as a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom. As a part of Operation New Dawn, which was initiated on September 1, 2010, there were 73 total deaths (including KIA and non-hostile) and 295 WIA.[49] See the references for a breakdown of the wounded, injured, ill, those returned to duty (RTD), those requiring medical air transport, non-hostile-related medical air transports, non-hostile injuries, diseases, or other medical reasons

Here is the number confirmed of Iraqi war dead, civilians and soldiers.

Associated Press Estimates..
Associated Press stated that more than 110,600 Iraqis had been killed since the start of the war to April 2009. This number is per the Health Ministry tally of 87,215 covering January 1, 2005, to February 28, 2009 combined with counts of casualties for 20032004, and after February 29, 2009, from hospital sources and media reports

The Iraq Body Count project (IBC) figure of Documented civilian deaths from violence is 173,686 193,965 as of April 2017. This includes reported civilian deaths due to Coalition and insurgent military action, sectarian violence and increased criminal violence.[17] The IBC site states: "it should be noted that many deaths will probably go unreported or unrecorded by officials and media."[18] The IBC website currently states that, "Further analysis of the WikiLeaks' Iraq War Logs may add 12,000 civilian deaths."

_________________________________________________________________________________________

If you hit the link, there are many different sources and many more numbers, but Bush Jr. was responsible for that war and the deaths and destruction that resulted from it...We Must Never Forget That..NEVER..

Also, during the Iraq War..Bush Jr. approved torture of prisoners in order to obtain information, which is prohibited by the United States Constitution which Bush Jr. swore to uphold.
When I think about that it is disgusting.
