The Trump Presidency

Recommended Posts

Did Pompeo really think that an NPR reporter wouldn't be able to find the country that has been at the center of some of the biggest news in US history for the past 6 months on a map?

Usually if a person is certain that someone doesn't know something, it's because that person just learned it and figures the person they are talking to couldn't possibly know it.

 

What I'm suggesting is: I don't think Pompeo could have pointed to Ukraine on a map a year ago.

^ they've been waiting for an excuse. They are mad that Schiff said that they are afraid of Trump. Now they will vote against witnesses to prove that Schiff war right.

I think that, more than anything else, Trump has exposed the deep flaws in the system that have previously gone largely unnoticed or ignored.  We have never been in a position where so much of the government existed solely to cover up the misdeeds and crimes of a president.  I don't think the Founders even considered such a scenario where so many people would be so corrupt and so deeply unpatriotic.  Furthermore, I'm confounded by the very idea that a president should be able to block any evidence or witnesses in an investigation into their own wrongdoings, let alone their trial.  In what other situation does a potential criminal get to dictate submitted evidence or testimony, especially without recourse?  What is the use of an impeachment and trial process for a president if there can never be any conviction simply due to either partisan hackery or, again,  a largely single-party government collaborating to defend the accused?   Once Senate Republicans acquit- and they will- the precedent is set that presidents are untouchable by any law, including the Constitution.  At that point, can we call ourselves a constitutional democracy?  Or a nation of laws?

The USA as we knew her is over. Perhaps groups of states can find their own democratic future together. And while I often disagree with this man, I agree with him here....

 

 

What a child....

Doubtful. In a Republican oligarchy, you're only allowed to insult people who don't show fealty to Dear Leader....

 

Sometimes children don't listen and have to find out the hard way. And it's very difficult for everyone to see....

As per Wikipedia: In August 2018 Pompeo called Russia to "immediately release" jailed Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov. 
 

So you see, Pompeo isn’t all bad. Just like 98% bad.

I wonder if Murkowski and Collins are clutching their pearls or if Lankford is "visibly upset " about this.

this one is hilarious.

 

the news says the president's position on abortion is 'evolving.'

 

yeah I'll say, given he was vehemently pro-choice.

 

and then when you think of all the abortions this hypocritical fraud paid for.

 

i.e.,

 

https://friedmanoftheplains.com/donald-trump-admits-to-paying-for-abortion-1c4ae9832770

 

but its as they say,

 

he could shoot someone on 5th avenue with some people -- and his russian loaners.

Republican senator admits he didn’t know about Bolton’s confirmation of Trump’s bribery — but still doesn’t care

 

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/01/republican-senator-admits-he-didnt-know-about-boltons-confirmation-of-trumps-bribery-but-still-doesnt-care/

 

“And it is a tricky combination like I told Chuck Todd this morning, between using your conscience and having to decide what the people in your state are wanting.”


OMG, these assh*ts are saying the quiet parts out loud again. 
 

As part of your senatorial duties, it’s your constitutional duty to be an impartial juror, based on the evidence. He, McConnell and Graham should be removed from the process based on their comments.

I did see that reference. It wasn’t a link so I Googled “Dallas Morning News Trump Abortion” and I didn’t get anything remotely resembling what was referenced.  Between that and the original article saying “(Satire)”, I’m reasonably confident it was satire. 

 

I would very much appreciate any article from a reputable news organization making a similar claim.

Good for him. 

 

Having said that - pretty sure no other President in the M4L history has quite the same experience with unwanted pregnancies as him

"likely" - still a weak statement. It gives them wiggle room. I'll believe Portman when I see it.

When we were still a functioning republic, Bolton's statements would be followed by a near unanimous call for him to testify.

I'll believe it when I see it.  I could see something from Collins like: "While the Bolton manuscript is disturbing and verifies the Democrats' entire case against Trump, the fact that Democrats didn't say please when asking for witnesses is equally, if not more, disturbing and is a major blow to their credibility."

Senator Barroso is saying that Bolton's revelations don't change anything. Bolton straight up claims that Trump did the thing that he is being impeached for. How does it not cahange anything?

A WH spokesman is claiming the Bolton account is fake because the book's publisher hates Trump... despite being the same publisher of Trump's own books.  This is so sad, so pathetic, and yet in these times of idiocy will now be repeated by tens of millions of Trumpers.

Apparently, the GOP is going to make a case for a "process argument" - that Bolton should have been subpoenaed in the House and it's not the Senate's duty to hear from him.
