    So many missed opportunities from 2008 to 16. Time now to pay for it.

      Hey, Amk.
      Great to See & Read Your Posts.
      How are you, Wife unit, Daughter unit, Son unit & jp & Co?
      ❤ ❤ ❤ your two posts.
      Yup, we were warned, many times. Many brushed it off. Now, we are paying for it.
      Last night #HRC was asked by Kristoff if she blamed #PBO for not doing enough on Russia Hacking. She said: I'd Never Blame Him.
      HRC had the Far Left i.e. Bernie, the Greens, the Right, Putin, Wikileaks & Men who H8 women against her. She still got 2.9M votes more.
      Since 2000, #GOP & #SCOTUS have been undermining US Electoral process. #Dems need to seriously wake the eff up.

      I will never forget how the Republicans treated President Obama, and the fact that they stole that Supreme Court seat. Just like I am not drooling all over Trump for those airstrikes, see I remember that Trump is a pathological liar, I remember the things he said and did.

    What’s 59 tomahawk missiles between friends?
    IMO this was yet another stepping stone to lifting Russian sanctions. Trump gave Putin the heads-up – but not the U.N. or the U.S. State Dept. Putin probably told Assad. Maybe Putin is ready to hand Assad over but more likely, Putin/Assad and Trump have a joint oil-related deal: Assad and Putin have key plans for an important, shared future naval and military facility in Tartus, which allows 11 Russian vessels to be present at the same time plus a refit of Syrian ships.

      Despite attempts to distract, Trumputin Administration will continue to be under investigation by the FBI into collusion with a hostile nation. Trump reacted with this staged show before there was time confirm or investigate the alleged Assad chemical attack. There was no provocation by Syria towards the United States. Trump’s total disrespect for life and U.S. Intelligence.

      That was the first thing I thought of myself. Another opportunity to change the subject away from the Russian involvement investigation. At the same time he could show how tough he is and how could he be Putin’s puppet when he started an airstrike against him? He definitely changed the topic and raise the polls at the same time.

    this of everything, sickens me the most. The deportations make me ill, but I believe at some point we can fix that, undo it. But this SCOTUS pick might as well be forever. And the mess that this can visit upon multitudes of folks in this country won’t be fixed. I hate this man and I hate republicans and I will never ever forgive or forget what they’re doing to our country.

    Comments put out by Marcel Groen…Chair of PA Dem Party

    Judge Gorsuch was just confirmed by the Senate and will become the next Justice of the Supreme Court. The Republicans changed the rules of the game and stole this seat from us so they could confirm a heartless, anti-worker judge.
    But that’s why we have to keep fighting.
    This year in Pennsylvania, we have races for the PA Supreme Court, Superior Court, and the Commonwealth court. These are the courts that will hear cases on gerrymandering, civil rights, state health care, and many other important issues.
    Now, more than ever, we need to continue fighting to win every single judicial seat we can.
    The Pennsylvania Democratic Party has endorsed six candidates for judicial races happening right now. We need your help spreading the word so that these highly qualified candidates get the support they need to win. We cannot afford to lose any more seats to judges like Gorsuch who put corporations over people.
    Talk to your friends about voting in the primary that’s just a little over a month away on MAY 16th, 2017 and then share this graphic by using the links below to help us raise awareness and turnout at the polls:
    Thanks for all that you do.

      Never, ever, ever, call it the “Age of Trump”. This implies a lack of understanding what an ‘age’ is. Clinton Era, Bush Era, ONLY BARACK OBAMA AND THE MAGNIFICENT VISION HE SHARED WITH THE ENTIRE WORLD, warrants the description of ‘age’, which lives to inspire throughout all time, until the end of time. This trump crap barely deserves to be called a ‘phase’, and unless he destroys the earth, it will pass, and quickly. I’m hearing this charade being given far too much credibility, based on the usage of the words Age of Obama. Thank you.

      GE AT2.

      This is the lead story on msn (windows 10 default page) now.

      This incident happened in February during inclement (snow and ice in the Big Bear area, a ski destination for folks in the greater LA area), but apparently is just now getting attention because local TV news are covering the story now.

      And yes, it is the birther’s fault.

      From the article:
      “Suh said she was shocked, then protested, telling the host that she had screenshots of their earlier messages showing she had agreed to the reservation changes.

      ‘Go ahead. I wouldn’t rent to u if you were the last person on earth,’ the host wrote back to Suh. ‘One word says it all. Asian’

      When Suh replied that she would report the host to Airbnb for being racist, the host told her to ‘Go ahead’ and ‘It’s why we have trump.’

      ‘And I will not allow this country to be told what to do by foreigners,’ the host added.

      Here’s link to msn article (to avoid WaPo paywall limitation):

    there are things that come out of places that you never expect;

    case in point, some of the homegrown demagogue’s supporters attacking the multipurpose-wonder-punk aka fake shoe designer’s husband aka demagogue’s out-of-his-depth son-in-law.

    well, I guess we should have paid more attention to a news item that came out a few days ago when we learned that the white supremacist was “demoted” from the National Security Council.

    that news item stated that some dirt will soon come out about demagogue’s out-of-his-depth son-in-law.

    it seems that now the deplorables who were celebrating the nepotism now are no longer amused and are attacking the demagogue’s out-of-his-depth son-in-law.

    they want to keep their white supremacist in position rather than the demagogue’s out-of-his-depth son-in-law.

    if you are interested in the deplorables’ outrage, then follow #FireKushner hashtag on twitter; there is also a little of #FireBannon

    could this help farther highlight the WH nepotism that most of us have complained about with no MSM traction?

    as they say life comes at you fast;

  48. April 7, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    From previous:
    Trump killed at least nine civilians including four children yesterday in his knee-jerk bombing.
    Trump killed over 1,400 civilians last month in Iraq and Syria.
    How come Trump said Assad “crossed the line” at 100 deaths – but repeatedly tweeted President Obama NOT to strike – following 1,000 chemical deaths via Assad in 2013.
    Trump: “I’ll look Syrian children in the face and say they can’t come”.

    This is what has left me sleepless since November 2016. The article tries to balance the crazy, but here’s the real nightmare line from the Deutsche Welle article:

    “But the dangers of exacerbating tensions in the Middle East with unilateral military action, and the potential spillover effect, whether irregular migration or violent escalation, will likely extend beyond Syria’s borders.”


    Which has already been the case, now it’s going to get even worse, if one can fathom that thought.

          I agree. These people now in charge do not care for all Americans. They only want their version of the world. They are the bullies and they have no empathy for foresight.

          I was told the other day by someone I work with that he wasn’t a liberal because there wasn’t free stuff. I had to walk away and not start an argument. The media is so at fault. I still believe in the people of this country. We must continue to resist.

    Donald Trump owns stock in the Tomahawk missiles he used in Syria.
    “they were a poor choice of weaponry under the circumstances, because Russia has S-400 surface to air defense technology in place in Syria which could easily have shot them down.” (Wapo)
    Trump warned Russia first – so why didn’t Putin shoot the 59 U.S. missiles down?
