Rally Big Show-off

Submitted by ub on Fri, 10/11/2019 - 08:37

Any individual who attracts attention by frequently, and most usually employed in a mildly mocking manner, or someone who deliberately behaves in such a way as to attract as much attention as possible.

By utilizing his Bully Pulpit has @realdonaldtrunp evolved into a really a big show-off who continually lies to his American base and will he be caught off base?

President Trump has repeatedly bragged about the size of his crowds  as journalists share photos and videos of rows of empty seats in the arenas.

Two of these men are currently under arrest today. How many others will neet a similar fate the following days? With a Pro-Trump Super PAC at the Center of Indictments. we'll just have to see what happens. These two foreign-born men helped Giuliani in Ukraine are arrested on campaign-finance charges. Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were expected to appear in federal court in Virginia. These are the first arrests in the impeachment investigation.

Sick of You

Our so-called leadership is gutless, spineless and shameless. Like a bloodsucking parasite living off our hard-earned tax dollars, making no sense and killing us. Do most Americans wish he would just go away and never return?

How could We The People have allowed it to get to this stage? Not just with despicable words but actions, which have consequences.

Who has managed to defend, or justify unspeakable acts while playing dumb, keeping quiet and therefore being complicit in silence?

The Political Jungle

A well-known phrase - History has a way of repeating itself - Or does it also have a way of reversing itself? The same kinds of events repeat or the opposite occurs. Will history repeat or reverse itself for our country? Is our nation is headed for disaster?

The "Eighteenth Brumaire" November 9, 1799 —the day Napoleon Bonaparte had made himself dictator by a coup d'état. The work is the source of one of Marx's most quoted statements, that history repeats itself, "the first as tragedy, then as farce".

On this Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the New Year, we wish our Jewish friends and readers, Samaritans, and all the Christian friends who celebrate it, a good, easy or meaningful fast.

Yom Kippur, the most significant holiday in the Jewish religion, marks an end to the 10 days of repentance.

This is a time for people to reflect on their sins and transgressions from the past year and ask God for forgiveness.

the holiest day of the Jewish year.

US Unmatched Wisdom

Submitted by ub on Tue, 10/08/2019 - 06:39

OK folks its time for show and tell. Who calls himself a stable genius and boasts about his unmatched wisdom without any knowledge? No, it was not Tricky Dick. Could it be Real Trekkie Don answering a distress signal from the USSR Putin? His decisions have been described as a knee jerk. They chose one word correctly. Trump has now abandoned the Kurds.

POTUS Bloody Hell

Submitted by ub on Mon, 10/07/2019 - 12:22

Congress needs to investigate why Trump agreed to give a green light to Erdogan against his advisers recommendations. Did POTUS give Putin an early holiday gift? What did Trump get in exchange for handing Turkey that territory? Most agree this one’s a political train wreck and a human blood bath waiting to happen.

Who asked for Trump to pull out... Not the Defense or the State Department, nor the foreign policy establishment or the American people. Not Republicans or Democrats? Was it Erdogan and Putin?

Supreme SCOTUS Term

Submitted by ub on Mon, 10/07/2019 - 01:37

OK, Country... Settle down, America. SCOTUS returns to work today with a new Supreme Court term, and there are serious judicial issues on tap.

The mourning menu for SCOTUS new term, which begins an extended run through much of the 2020 election season is really serious. The justices adjourn next June, but their influence will be felt by most, including POTUS, Congress and We The People.

The First Draft Of History

After reading the book, I recommend The HBO documentary "Deadline Artists" which explores an era when newspapers were still king, with two stars and historians. Pete Hamill and Jimmy Breslin brought New York City to life through shoe-leather reporting and tabloid poetry.

#PeteHamill and #JimmyBreslin - Names that will live not only in print but in the history book of news reporters, not journalists.

Big Boys Do Not Cry

President Donald Trump left his native country as an old man and traveled across the globe to meet a much younger man he says fell in love with. He plunged himself into this relationship and longed to tell his story, but his heart was broken by yet another two-timing Dick Tator.
