  • Will Donald Trump Eventually Get Impeached?   2 days 23 hours ago

    Quote Teresa: ... Pence will still push the same horrible policies as Trump, but at least he will not be a loose cannon.

    Being a loose canon is Stewie's saving grace; it keeps him from ever getting any results.

    May he writhe in eternal torment as Fux News blares in his ears with no commercial breaks ...or be reanimated as the Pussy Grabber's favorite concubine. Yikes! No, that would be too horrible, even for his terrible karma. Choose option one.

    To all those who want to impeach Stewie: Do you REALLY want President Pence? Wise men know to be careful in for what they wish.

    And yes, Stewie will get re-elected. The Dems are so completely clueless they cannot win a single dog-catcher post. And the Progressives have yet to start getting organized. So All Hail Emperor Stewie!

    Quote Randolph Garrison:Trump did not win.

    Right. Hillary lost. Big. As the most despised woman in America, she had no chance at all. Even sarah Palin would have beaten her. And after what she and Debbie did to Bernie, I shall never vote for another Democrat.

    Bill O'Reilly is whining crybaby, who masquerades as a bully. O'Reilly knows damn well that Roger Ailes was a victim of his own making. Just as Trump brought his own problems on himself, Roger Ailes' own behavior caused his downfall. Ironically, the talking heads at Fox News like O'Reilly, Ailes, Hannity, etc. are hypocritically big on personal responsiblity for everyone but themselves. Like Trump, these clowns think that somehow they are above the rules and norms of society that apply to the rest of us. I am surprised that O'Reilly didn't blame Ailes' death on the usual suspects, President Obama and/or Hillary Clinton.

    Nope. The Dems are so obsessed with their "we wuz robbed" and "Trump is so politically incorrect" hysteria that they are sure to go down in flames even bigger in 2018.

    The way that I read it was he fell 7days ago and hit his head. Never went to the hospital. Fell into a coma and died from brain bleeding. I wonder if his wife was holding a baseball bat when he fell.

    Bill O'Reilly ignores the part about hitting his head and says that it was the public shame that killed him, with fake news being blamed. Two of a kind.

    DdC,

    It's a scam that has been an equal opportunity glad handling from both sides of the aisle. Only now both the left and right is screaming because omg! white america is coming under the hammer. Their white faces are showing up in the jails, their white faces are showing up in the obits, their white faces are being disenfranchised at the polls.

    Ah yeah, now the left decide the war on drugs is maybe worth talking about (or is it perhaps only because) while the right doubles down on the yet another stupid continueing endless war. Both sides though are only pushing different versions of the same program.

    As always, Outback's overall points and reasoning are solid and well defended. Given the sad reality of the nearly completed takeover of our two-party system and Supreme Court by the tiny class of wealthy elites, who have no interest at all in ever ceding any of their power back to the People -- as the rebellious signatories to the Declaration of Independence would have demanded, at the point of a bayonet -- I really don't have a strong argument for giving the Democratic Party one more chance to recognize their fatal errors and to prove their mettle. That would mean, in my mind anyway, following Bernie's lead, pledging not to take any corporate money, and letting the Progressive Caucus lead the charge on every issue, especially their wonderful budget proposal and Medicare for all.

    Nevertheless, as remote as that possibility seems, I feel compelled to give the Democrats a last chance, despite the long odds, which seem only slightly better than trying to build up the necessary head of steam to get an effective third party up to speed in time for the next election cycle. In fact, time is so short that the greatest watershed moment in the entire history of our democratic republic is likely upon us, which could determine our fate for generations to come. The day of reckoning is now down to a matter of months, no more than a year according to Yale historian Timothy Snyder (his new book: On Tyranny). We will know very soon if the oligarchs take the final steps to all-out fascism and if we the people can stop them.

    It really is up to us. We must each realize deep within ourselves that fundamental change is in order, rather than passively waiting on the sidelines for something or someone to make the change for us. Neither will it work to merely tweak a corrupt and entrenched system at the peripheral of the political battle field. Whether it's fighting desperately within the existing parties to completely reverse course or through a third party that has the potential to alter the political dynamic, the ultimate solution is exactly what Outback prescribes: "...above all else, grab our neighbor by the lapel and shake some sense into him or her." We have all the power -- not the greedy bastards at the top!

    So far, it doesn't look good -- our fortunes are not turning and the battle is still an uphill struggle. Having been lied to so badly for so long by corporate media, extremist propaganda, and the political establishment, the people are divided, conquered, and dispirited, preferring escapism and false narratives over facing the hard truths of a failing democracy. They can't even agree on the simple, outward facts of objective reality to make informed decisions, which is one of the fundamental admonitions of the First Amendment.

    Thomas Jefferson said that an ignorant electorate sounds the death knell of a people's republic. Are we now realizing his worst fear? Have we already lost it? Are we a defeated people?

    Ganja Sanctuary States

    AB-1578 (2017-2018)

    Marijuana and cannabis programs:
    cooperation with federal authorities.

    This bill would prohibit a state or local agency, as defined, from taking certain actions without a court order signed by a judge, including using agency money, facilities, property, equipment, or personnel to assist a federal agency to investigate, detain, detect, report, or arrest a person for commercial or noncommercial marijuana or medical cannabis activity that is authorized by or allowed under state or local law in the State of California and from transferring an individual to federal law enforcement authorities for purposes of marijuana enforcement. or detaining an individual at the request of federal law enforcement or federal authorities for marijuana- or cannabis-related conduct that is legal under state or local law.

    Like SB 54, AB 1578 has raised concerns among law enforcement groups, which argue that local and federal authorities need to work together for public safety and shouldn’t be overly restrained in their communications.

    No Sanctuary for Marijuana in California
    It’s understandable that state lawmakers want to resist potential federal intervention. But a proposal to make California a so-called sanctuary state for marijuana is not the way to go.

    They don't care what goes on around
    In their eyes there's something lacking
    What they need's a damn good whacking.

    “The Respect States’ and Citizens’ Rights Act of 2017" would prohibit Congress from suing or ordering raids on recreational and medical marijuana retailers and producers.”

    Expert calls for government to stop 'lying' about cannabis

    Meanwhile the Corporate News is spreading the word far and wide that Trump lies. They think. He talks to Russians and blocks investigations. Not a space on tv for news that Scientists Discover Medical Cannabis Could Help Protect Pensioners Against Dementia Or an investigation into why the most beneficial plant is a schedule#1 drug. Trump isn't dealing with "Russia", its Putin. Its not secrets, its profits. Now they know, maybe they can investigate Sessions ties to ALEC maxcap contracts and profit prisons, ,,, and the sudden rush to stop lowering big pharma deaths, safer roads and liver damage just to fill a cage for money. One Million Hours of Police Time a Year ‘Wasted Enforcing Cannabis Prohibition’/ Obstruction of Justice sounds plausible. IF it pans out, then let us know. Until then report the news damn it!

    The “lesser of two weasels” phenomenon when applied to party affiliation is a dangerous game. For one thing, given only the two choices it becomes much easier for the accused, exchanging winks, to engage in in the same base behavior enabled by Citizens United, for example.

    I don't often disagree with deepspace, but on the issue of whether it's better to confront the villain du jour while trying to administer triage to last decade's villain I am in complete disagreement. The exercise is futile, as they share the same fundamental DNA.

    I, too, regret that Bernie didn't choose to run as an independent from the outset, though I understand his reasons for going the way he did. His public exposure in that venue likely helped him early on. But as the primary battle wore on and it became clear that Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her cronies had no intention of giving him a fair shot at the nomination, Sanders made the fatal error of not breaking off and taking his people with him. He had the momentum and the numbers in addition to an absolutely justifiable reason to do so, say, three months before the Democratic Primaries. I think he could have pulled it off as a third party candidate at that particular point. As pointed out by DHBranski above “ In the end, roughly half of all voters rejected both, and voted third party or withheld their votes”, with reference to Trump and Clinton. I'd take those odds any day. I worked for the Sanders Campaign for a time, but voted for Jill Stein and will never be able to completely forgive Bernie for rolling over so nicely for Hillary, who represented the diametrical opposite of the principles he espoused.

    And regarding the concept of rebuilding the Democratic Party into a kinder, gentler version which will heed the call to again represent the masses, one only need look to the recent rebuilding of the DNC and consider who came out on top. I don't see one slim chance that the grass roots is going to alter the nature of the Democratic Party leadership's “global corporate paradigm”. Even if theoretically possible, it would take generations.

    Not that we shouldn't support progressives on the ballot at every level, but I believe the best hope we have as individuals to affect change is to promote the growing independent media, to fight at every turn the looming specter of a corporate takeover of the internet, and above all else, grab our neighbor by the lapel and shake some sense into him or her. Of course, in some cases, there is simply no cure for stupidity.

    Deep nSpace is thanked for his great comments. He or she is right. The only thing is Pence will be Presented if he becomes President as the adult in the room thoughtfull responsible and dignified everything a President should be. The Corporate Media will shove him down our throat. Trump is a gigantic millstone around the Republicans neck and I want him to stay right there untill 2020 or so close to it it doesn't matter. I want no one to ever forget that the Republicans put him in office and they are responsible and guilty of everything he does.

    The years of the Bush administration were spent pursuing the same claims. No matter how many times claims of (for example) voter supression are repeated, it means nothing if solid evidence of such supression isn't produced, and then pursued via the legal system.

  • Is the Clock Running Out On Trump's Presidency?   3 days 8 hours ago

    It has become a solid tradition for one side or the other the call for impeachment. Impeachment is actually a complicated legal process. First, charges of impeachable offenses need to be drawn up. These must be based on evidence, not just allegations and/or fears. Then Congress would need to pursue those charges. It's unrealistic to think that the current crop of Democrats would do that.

    The Democrats' anti-Russian campaign began within a week of the election, as headlines jumped from "Trump stole the election!" to "Russia stole the election!" The election results are actually more complicated. Both candidates were opposed by much of their own voting bases. In the end, roughly half of all voters rejected both, and voted third party or withheld their votes. Trump is so alarming that Clinton won the most votes, the Electoral College vote went to Trump, and none of this had anything to do with Russia.

    It would be wise to consider how deeply Democrats have split apart their own voting base. The Dem voting base had (at least since FDR) consisted of the "masses" -- poor and middle class, for the common good. The Clinton wing split this base apart in the 1990s, and the past eight years confirmed that this split is permanent.

    A third party will not work at this time. That is why Bernie ran as a Democrat and why the Tea Party never separated and formed a third party. You just will split the party. We now need to stregthen the Democratic Party. We have suppressed voters, so we know we have to get more out to vote. Hopefully a lot of these idiots that voted Republican are learning from the current mess that they got us into and will change their vote.

  • Is the Clock Running Out On Trump's Presidency?   3 days 12 hours ago

    trump was never a president! He is merely the chairman of the board that considers the people of America and the world as mere slaves to his whims. Along with the impeachment, we need to nullify the 2016 election because of the massive voter suppression that put the corrupt republicans in control with no checks or balances.

    America loses again if Pence become president and everything else remains as it is now!

  • Is the Clock Running Out On Trump's Presidency?   3 days 12 hours ago

    Impeachment, trial, conviction, and prison are required for trump!! But more so the entire election of 2016 needs to be nullified because of the massive voter suppression, giving the corrupt republicans control of the entire government nullifying all the checks and balances.

Are We Watching the End Of the Trump Presidency?

As the explosive allegations against Donald Trump pile up, is impeachment now a real possibility?

Even as he headed to Saudi Arabia for his first foreign trip as commander-in-chief, Donald Trump couldn't escape the growing stench of scandal surrounding his administration.
