From bail, head straight to jail. This is what a US Judge has ordered in the case of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager. Paul John Manafort Jr. is also a lobbyist, a political consultant, and lawyer who was the Republican party leader of the presidential campaign team from March 2016 to August 2016.

Anyone who is an unregistered lobbyist for a foreign government, which is illegal and classified as a felony, whether or not others fall under the same category. If they do then they should all go to jail.

Is the USA for sale, or has it already been sold right from under our eyes? As the resistance to POTUS continues to grow in communities across America, hundreds of thousands of people have protested Trump’s cutting the rights of many and more wil most likely continue demonstrating in cities across the nation.

Moreover, the resistance has reached the halls of Congress after Trump uses his jaw Mussolini-style, claiming that a new vision will govern our land called America first, but is it really more like Trump first?

The Real USA Allies

Submitted by ub on Tue, 06/12/2018 - 06:51

We The People of The United States of America have long relied on a group of close allies, along with formal diplomatic relations with most UN member states except for Bhutan, Iran, North Korea, and Syria. That was then, but @realDonaldTrump has now changed all of this. Where is our system of checks and balances?

Why is it that longtime allies and trading partners like Canada, Great Britain, Germany, France, Mexico and South Korea have been pushed aside for North Korea, Russia, and China?
