I don't think the 'bimbo' realizes she actually told the truth for once.:lol:

Haha yea she's not wrong. Presidents usually could be trusted. Nobody can call Tweety an honest man with a straight face.

Now turn your brain back on. Do you think he's actually taking this drug, which the FDA has warned against? He's the President of the USA, he can't just request to start taking whatever medication he feels like. What Dr. in their right mind would prescribe this for a person with those preconditions? Maybe the Dr. who was taking care of Michael Jackson? That's about it.

 

 

Probably whichever quack declared him mentally fit to not be institutionalized.

Inspector general of 17 years investigating McConnell's wife now gone as well.

 

Any of the Trumpets want to explain how getting rid of IGs and placing loyalists in their place is somehow ok? 

Pfft easy.

 

Clearly they are "draining the swamp" and hiring only the "best people".

 

See Jared Kushner as an example. 

 

:rolleyes:

It's straight from the fascist playbook.

Honestly, this all makes me quite worried for the States and, by extension, us.

 

I never thought in a million years that democracy would be so fragile in a country like the US. They were always so gung ho about freedom, anti-communism, etc. Then sprinkle in a Russia troll campaign and a populist candidate and it's all crumbling around them with barely a whimper from the populace. 

 

Never had I thought that the US would allow a president to so brazingly break the rules, erase anybody who dares to investigate him or his cronies,  and destroy any chances of any transparency from the government. Kemp cancels a supreme Court judge election, Trump denies funding to the USPS to prevent voting...it's all so surreal.

 

The land of the free and all that needs to give it up because America isn't that country anymore. There are no checks and balances. Corruption has taken full control. 

 

They took over the supreme court by unprecedentedly blocking Obama's nomination.

They took over the DOJ, a department that's supposed to be independent from the executive office.

They are eliminating all the IGs that have investigations ongoing into right wing officials, the same right wing that commits and is charged with 90% of all crimes while in office. 

They say nope to any checks, no to regulations, no to laws. &^@# it all, we are going to get the money and power we desire by any means necessary. Tyranny by the minority.

 

And it was made possible by a narcissistic moron who has 13 words in his vocabulary. Unreal.

Let’s not insult morons please!

I know plenty of morons that have more than 13 words in their vocabulary.

As far as general public goes, masses are asses, too wrapped up in their lives to notice what is going on.

Not even remotely surprised.  It's never been "patriotism", it's always been nationalism dressed up as patriotism

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday called Michigan's plan to send mail-in voting applications to all voters in the state illegal, without citing a specific law, and threatened to withhold funding to the state.

"This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!" Trump wrote in a tweet.

Republicans, looking for a smoking gun, end up shooting themselves in the foot:


https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolitics/targeting-susan-rice-republican-gambit-completely-backfires/ar-BB14mNF8?li=AAggNb9
 

Quote

 

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) apparently thought he'd come up with a good idea. A few days ago, the Wisconsin Republican formally requested that the Trump administration fully declassify an email former White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice sent to herself in January 2017 regarding her incoming successor, former foreign agent Michael Flynn.

As Johnson noted, that email, portions of which were made available to the public in 2018, referenced details of an Oval Office meeting from Jan. 5, 2017, in which then-President Barack Obama and his team discussed, among other things, Flynn and his misconduct. The powerful Senate committee chairman said in his written request that it is "essential that Congress and the American people understand what occurred" in that meeting.

For her part, Rice enthusiastically endorsed Johnson's request -- and it's become painfully obvious why. As Politico reported late yesterday:

[The full text of the email] says that then-FBI Director James Comey worried about sharing classified information with the Trump team because of incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn's frequent conversations with the Russian ambassador but that Comey had no knowledge of Flynn sharing classified information with the envoy.

Rice's email, sent in the interest of memorializing her concerns in an official record, said Obama wanted to be sure "every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities 'by the book.'" The email, written shortly before Trump's inauguration added, "[Obama] stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book."

The newly declassified portion discloses that Comey, the then-FBI director, confirmed that federal law enforcement was proceeding "by the book," though he had concerns about Flynn's frequent and problematic communications with the country that had just attacked the U.S. elections.

Remember, the point of this week's disclosures, from the perspective of Ron Johnson and other Republicans, was to make Susan Rice and the Obama administration look bad. Except the gambit has now backfired: the Rice email GOP partisans were so eager to disclose shows an Obama team doing everything right, while also casting Flynn -- the disgraced former general whose reputation Republicans are trying to rescue -- in a deeply unflattering light.

Or put another way, Republicans have found a smoking gun, but they failed to realize it was pointed in the wrong direction.

Indeed, the gambit that was intended to put Rice on the defense has actually left her on the offensive. From the Politico article:

Rice also called for the Trump administration to release the transcripts of phone calls between Flynn and the Russian ambassador during the transition. "The American people deserve the full transcripts so they can judge for themselves Michael Flynn's conduct," the statement read.

Exactly. Ron Johnson, Ric Grenell, and Republicans are interested in Flynn-related disclosures? That's a great idea. Flynn had private communications with the country that attacked U.S. elections -- communications he later lied to the FBI about -- reportedly as part of an effort to undermine his own country's foreign policy at the time. There are apparently transcripts of those chats.

If Rice's letter has been declassified, shouldn't Flynn's conversations be treated the same way? The fact that it hasn't may have something to do with the Trump administration and its allies hoping to ignore a real scandal while trying to manufacture a fake one.

why not? the republican party will let him get away with it, and so-called conservatives don't actually care about democracy anymore.

Their "version" of nationalism.  Ie., "Deliverance" hicks with t-shirts saying "better to be in Russia than vote for a Democrat".  Which is ironic because of the mentality of many Dixiecrats in prior to civil rights.

I mean, Biden was the guy who embarked on what he called the "No Malarkey" tour....in 2020. So he's not the greatest in the branding department.

Yet another example that TRUMP isn't playing with a full deck.  I wonder if anybody in is campaign/administration has told him that he needs to win Michigan in order to remain POTUS.
