Flooding The Swamp

Submitted by ub on Sat, 05/12/2018 - 13:12

On 12/2016 just before election day, @realdonaldtrump shouted his so-called hits to an adoring Pennsylvania audience, slamming Hillary Clinton, the stupid establishment lawmakers, and the fake news media. He launched into one of the most defining refrains of his campaign... Special interests, Wall Street, career politicians, stating the system is rigged, and he once again repeated, believe me, we’re going to beat the system by draining the DC Swamp

The Art of A Drug Deal?

What happened inside that infamous swamp between then and now? It is now evolved into the creature if the orange lagoon.

It was 18 months ago when @realDonaldTrump screamed out that pharma companies were getting away with murder. What do We The People now if we learn companies paid to play? Did @POTUS drink the Kool-Aid or is it a more sinister situation?

Groveling Isn't Governing

Why has the Grand Old Party delved into a new low for The GOP - Groveling On Politics? Are desperate Republicans reaching inside a bag of tricks to search for anything that will save their party? Is it normal to lie or move abjectly on the ground with one's face downward?

Conservative George Will unloads on the GOP: It’s now the party of ‘groveling as governing’…

President Donald Trump is violating the Iran nuclear deal and not listening to many US allies while leaving our future in doubt. Does this make him a deal breaker, and not a deal maker?

The old Russian proverb "Доверяй, но проверяй" Doveryai, no Proveryai, which is translated to Trust, but Verify now have a new meaning after Republican Ronald Reagan said it. The facts are clear after the US accepted a treaty and signed it with other nations then violated it.

GOP Family Feud

Submitted by ub on Tue, 05/08/2018 - 00:18

The Republican Party is referred to as the GOP and it is one of the two major US political parties.

But recently, it appears like they are the ones who could not shoot straight unless it is to give tax breaks to the wealthy minority.

A real fight is taking shape inside the GOP and the bumpy road ahead may just be what Democrats need to get back on the good footing for 2018.

The Republicans have had a thin 51-49 majority in the Senate, but an increasing family feud does not look like it is going to be ending any time soon and all signs ahead indicate road rage.

A Rudy Awakening

Submitted by ub on Mon, 05/07/2018 - 18:02

Is this @POTUS version for a theater of the absurd? How do you separate facts from fiction and news from views? Are Rudy and The Donald throwing everything out, including the kitchen sink to see if anything sticks? Is this a modern-day version of NO EXIT the 1944 existentialist play?
