Tinker - Tailor - Mobster - Trump


The author of this article, which appeared in the Guardian, says to read it with a degree of speculation. It reveals several things about Trump that have been born from the Mueller report as well as from the Simpson and Fritsch book, Crime In Progress. It is a very interesting read.

People in Washington must have known much about Donald Trump before he ran for president, but yet, there he is, a possible (?) Confidential Informant.

If true, itís no surprise. Not too much startles me anymore about the most compromised and corrupt President this country has ever suffered under.

Senator: Ease gathering ban for worship

More mental diarrhea from a Republican politician. He just doesnít quite get whatís going on, and yet, was elected to a position of authority.

Apparently, Wisconsin State Senator David Craig doesnít quite get the gist of the pandemic.

ďAs state government takes steps to protect the well-being of Wisconsinites, it is also important that state government not infringe upon fundamental rights of our citizenry, including the free exercise rights of individuals seeking to worship according to the dictates of their conscience.Ē

Now then, aside the oblivious repercussions of group gatherings, letís talk about the proximity of pews and the six foot social separation suggestions. Pews that from the back of one pew to the front edge of the following pew, might be three feet apart. Oops! Wonít work. More than half (wild guess) would never fit into the church under those circumstances.

This was just another mindless dribble from a Republican who still believes Lindbaugh and Hannity that this is no more than the flu. Absurd!

I found the debate to lack substance.

In my opinion, there were a few questions that resonated with voters, but not enough to address the serious issues that are so crucial at this point in America. There was plenty of bluster for position, but not nearly enough issue oriented debate. The questions from the moderators lacked substance, almost like they were afraid to bring up the corruption of whatís his name in the Oval Office, how to deal with the aftermath of coverups, foreign intervention, vote rigging, the dismantling of the Justice Department, the emoluments clause, issues involving gun deaths in the country, the threat of white supremacy, the narrowing of wealth (mildly addressed), securing the basic tenets of the constitution, ......

All in all, this was more of a personality event than a substantive debate. No one candidate came out a winner.

Many thanks for the Valentine.

Sometimes I think that I vent too much. I post and then start my day so I donít often get back to reply.

In any event, I view myself as sort of a silent member. I greatly respect and appreciate the opinions of those with much more insight, knowledge, intelligence and credibility than myself.

So, I was flattered that I was given a heart. Thank you.

Will someone please explain to me.....

why, when numerous subpoenas were lawfully issued and ignored, that there is absolutely no repercussion? I donít understand. If laws have no meat, why do we have them, or are laws that govern us only limited to the working class Joe Blow, and beyond the purview of the powerful and wealthy?

Perry's deal with the Ukraine.

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) ó Two political supporters of U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry secured a potentially lucrative oil and gas exploration deal from the Ukrainian government soon after Perry proposed one of the men as an adviser to the countryís new president.


The gloves are coming off.

If you thought it was nuts before, just wait to see what Barr is going to cook up at Trumpís orders. Our current state of affairs is already mind boggling and itís only going to become more intense as the election gets closer. The gloves are coming off and itís sink or swim time so hang on tight. The coming months will be a doozy.

Are we fortunate or cursed to be witnessing the most disturbing times of recent memory? I fear for our future, as it may only be sustained after a period of great national pain. And which party brought this to bear? They intend to win at any cost. I hope we are as prepared.

I need some advice.

Very recently, I started getting ads all over the place when I am in DU. It happened shortly after an upgrade from Apple. The ads are on the top, bottom, left, and right on the page and partially inserted in the text itself. I asked if anybody else was experiencing this, and was told to become a star member, which I did to no avail. The ads are an intrusion and I object to having to maneuver the page around to hide the ads.

Whatís the deal? Is it only me? Is there a way to cut out the bombardment of meaningless ads that aggravate me rather than stimulate me to buy?
