Most know this Hunter email scandal is bogus.  Only Trump's hard core supporters believe in it.  He'll do himself no good attacking in this manner.  For the majority, it will just make him look more s

The 60 minutes interview that Trump just released made him look pretty bad.  He still seems a bit shocked when people don't suck up to him like Fox News and his inner circle.   Hopefully he'

Any sane person watching that debate would not vote for Biden.  Pity him, yes.  Vote for him?  No.

President Trump has more at stake in this election than whether he remains in the White House. Holding the highest office in the land grants him effective immunity from federal criminal prosecution and gives him wide powers to stymie lawsuits against him and his business. That all changes once he becomes an ordinary citizen again.

... and the US has a real Attorney General again.  The road from the WH may lead to Allenwood.

The best that could happen to him is it gets decided that making him a convicted felon would be too much of a detriment to the presidency, which is why they didn't throw the book at Nixon.

 

On the other hand the relationship with Russia may qualify as treason, and DT gets to replace Benedict Arnold in US culture.  Congrats, Donnie.

I can't believe how many people actually believe the farce we call "voting"  is anymore than a contest to see which group ( which has absolutely no concern about the suckers   so called electorate) will have the most access to the big corporate pie.

I really don't know who to feel embarrassed for more :  the suit and tie lawyer/criminals  or the masses that march like robots to cast a meaningless vote.

 

have to admit though:  when i look at these 2 old guys I am really beyond amazed that these are

 what is being offered up as "choices".    man,  funnier than a skit on Saturday Night  (almost) Alive

It would be funny if it wasn't so sad that two old men with lots of baggage are the best the US can come up with to be president. It wouldn't matter if the position was ceremonial as with Ireland, but the US president has, IMO, too much power. Would be better if more power rested with the individual states, and less with the federal government, IMO.

Who purposely created a policy of separating  thousands and thousands of children - even infants and toddlers - from their parents? 545 of those children still are separated.

 

Something I don't understand. If one's children were forcibly separated from you by the US government, why would the parent/s be unable to advise the detail of their children to enable reunification? There would be NGOs and presumably Mexican government to assist the parents with formalities.

 

if Scott reads this post, can you provide a heads up?

Also, there are a few parents who are not going to cooperate.   If they have been deported, they may very well have accomplished their goal of getting their child to a safe country.  

 

Am I correct / incorrect that at this point in time there is not enacted legislation to permit the children to be fostered / join the community at legal age of maturity?

People and especially Foreigners love to yammer about this. Nostalgia time; I recall reading an op ed piece in the Bangkok Post, yes back when we read newspapers. It made the same argument. The rich and powerful would rule Amerika anyway, it was all a façade who was president. The year was 2004, Jr Bush vs Kerry.
 

What was so annoying back then and so numbingly obvious. Staring BP journos and all bar stool prophets & prognosticators  in the face, Jr Bush is romping in Iraq after WMD. If Al Gore is elected in 2000, (and he might have been BTW), there would have been be no Iraq adventure. That would never have happened.
 

Trump has appointed a slew of federal judges besides two Supreme Court justices, that will affect laws for decades after he has gone. He has also gutted as many laws, and agencies, as he could get away with. The list is ugly, and long. This is of course the real reason the Republican hierarchy really tolerated and supported him. The gutting of decades’ worth of legislation, environmental laws, tax regs, education, & on & on.
 

The fact that people do not know much about it is not surprising. People like the Koch brothers, Wall Street, Big Pharma, etc. count on that fact.

I’ll remind you of that the next time you whine about Congress, the courts and/or the press holding the President to account.

Who built the cages?

 

Funny, now they are called cages. Donald and company would never refer to them as cages before. Why the sudden change now? Just to make it an attack line?

 

Yes, they were built during the Obama presidency to handle the influx of immigrants coming into the US (when times were good in the US and people actually wanted to come to the USA). They were meant as a temporary holding area while people were processed into the USA. These temporary holding areas/cages were only meant to be used for a few hours to a few days while immigration would process these individuals. They were never meant to house people for weeks or months at a time as during Donald's administration.

 

Donald and company used these holding areas/cages to prevent/deter immigration. Quite the opposite of the intended function.
