Yeah, Cheating Is Likely Occurring -- But We Are Just Losing Too....

Democrats are losing. Now, some of this could easily be election rigging on behalf of Republicans, true enough.

The FACT has to circle around Democrats are losing too.

There were in the last three months - three special elections. Trump's so-called "approval rating" is supposedly 36% and has never supposedly reached beyond 45%. Yet, the Democrats have lost all three Special Elections.

Money was NOT the issue in the Ossoff race. Repeat, NOT the ISSUE.

When upwards of $25 MILLION DOLLARS is spent on a Congressional race, sorry Charley -- there was enough money in the race to win it, point, blank, period.

So now, we return back to election rigging. Which is/was a possibility. However, don't we know this is a UNIQUE POSSIBILITY, after the Clinton/Trump race? Of course, we did.

If we have not learned that YET, and know to REALLY win the other side must be down by 10 points a night before the election (instead of us up by 1-2%) -- then races will continue to be lost - as the GOP will rig the game if it's anywhere near close.

Another point. Ossoff not living in the district was the X-Factor which also lost this race for him, in the end.


And if one is running to represent an area, district, township, city, state --- they need to LIVE where they want to be elected at.

Lastly, the Democrats need to new game plan. How to build it, we don't know but it HAS TO BE BUILT -- as the GOP will cheat, lie, steal and anything else they have to do, to win.

What Will The Democrats Do, In Return?

Wolf Blitzer CNN: "This Was Not It Was a Rough Neighborhood Or Something"

Referring to the Shooting of a GOP Congressional member today along with two staff members.

Like if individuals get shot in whatever Wolf Blitzer think are "Rough Neighborhoods" and are not a GOP Member of Congress and their associated staff, they deserve it or something.

Maybe the news media need to take a big dose of STFU before running to the studio to give the breaking news play by play.

How f***ing insulting to anyone that has been shot and killed in anywhere, but guess it does not count as much to Wolf Blitzer if the neighborhood was "rough" or better yet -- was primarily African-American.

Isn't that what you really meant by "Rough Neighborhood" WOLF BLITZER OF CNN???

LeBron James Talks Vandalism, Racism: Being Black In America Is Tough

Source: Huffington Post

“We got a long way to go for us as a society,” James said at a conference after a racial slur was spray-painted on his home."

LeBron James’ Los Angeles home was vandalized with a racial slur on Wednesday morning, an incident that the LAPD is investigating as a hate crime.

On the eve of the NBA Finals, James spoke about the incident during a press conference Wednesday afternoon. He stressed that “racism will always be a part of the world and of America” and how Americans still have a long way to go.

The basketball star also made reference to the murder of Emmett Till ― a 14-year-old boy who was brutally killed in 1955 after being accused of whistling at a white woman. He said the vandalism on his home immediately made him think of Till’s mother’s decision to hold an open-casket funeral so that everyone in the world could see what racist ideals had done to her son.

James stressed the importance of talking about race relations, finding a shred of hope in the incident for its ability to shed light on what it means to be black in America and “continue to keep the conversation going.”

The latter sentiment likely sounds familiar because James spoke out about racism just a few weeks ago when Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was the target of racial slurs.

“Racism is gonna be a part of time forever, I believe, but I think for us, the people that have the opportunities to have a voice and people that have an opportunity to have some play on the youth that’s coming up, we have to lead them the best way we can, and we have to live with the results...” James said in response to what happened to Jones. “It’s a real, real longer conversation, but if we can keep the conversation going, I think it helps.”

“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you: Being black in America is tough,” James said during the conference. “We got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African-Americans until we feel equal in America.”

It would be nice if this can stay in LBN. We'll see. As there is a complete breakdown in basic decorum and racial relations in America. It's happening bit by bit. Little by little. Starting with how former President Barack Obama was treated, his family, kids, to the shootings of unarmed African-American Men, Women, Girls and Boys, to the "Selection" of Trump and now this with many other incidents in-between.

It's a dangerous time in America and sadly, the worse likely have yet to come. We have not and likely will not in this lifetime, Overcome.

First Republican raises impeachment for Trump

Source: The Hill

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) on Wednesday said reports that President Trump pressed ousted FBI Director James Comey to end an investigation would merit impeachment if true, becoming the first Republican lawmaker to broach the idea.

The New York Times on Tuesday reported that Trump tried to pressure Comey to stop investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn, citing a memo written by Comey.

Asked by The Hill if the details in the memo would merit impeachment if they're true, Amash replied: "Yes."

"But everybody gets a fair trial in this country," Amash added as he left a House GOP conference meeting.

Asked by another reporter whether he trusted Comey's word or Trump's, Amash said: "I think it's pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey."

Rep. Justin Amash is a Republican but, he is RIGHT ON POINT on this -- on how the people of our great State of Michigan feel at the present state of Cheeto affairs. It is time to IMPEACH him!

REAL POTUS Barack Obama Says, Cheeto Is Nothing But A Bulls***er.....

"Former President Barack Obama has spent most of his successor's presidency checked out from reality on tropical islands with millionaires. But when it comes to a frank assessment of President Trump, Obama did not mince words when speaking with his friends last November, People reports.

Trump is "nothing but a bulls----er," Obama reportedly said.

The unnamed friends told People that Obama's opinion "hasn't gotten any better" since Trump took office. "He's deeply concerned with what he's seen," one friend said. "But he's also optimistic and heartened that citizens aren't just watching it happen but engaging with neighbors and elected representatives at town halls."


Thank You, REAL POTUS Barack Obama for calling it, like it is!!!!

The Systematic Dismantling Of America's Institutions Of Government

Beginning to wrap one's head around the breakneck pace of information which has happened in America the last four weeks under Trump. It appears a Systematic Dismantling of America's Institutions of Government are taking place.

First, can anyone effectively keep up with the flurry of changes occurring in Washington, D.C. Everyday, there is a new story, article, point of panic, a concerning nominee for a cabinet office, resignation, new announcements, Tweets, "Breaking News", and more resulting in a state of outright chaos in America.

Eventually, this amount of an unstable ship sinking on the high seas will seep down in the Capitols of States in the Union, County or Parrish Units of Government and municipal operations -- if some forms of what's occurring at the top of America's Governmental pyramid have not already.

Trump and company are doing their best to create an unbalanced matrix where the chains of authority and governmental functions - all of them - are squarely centered in the hands of individuals in the White House, seeking to destroy what is left of modern day Democracy, held on by a string.

However, these actions have been transpiring for awhile, bit by bit as greed capitalism has become the mainstay since the 1980's based "Reagan Years".

The Alabama Trump - AL Governor Robert Bentley Impeachment Gets Renewed Effort

Gov. Robert Bentley thought he had solved his problems. But he may have made them worse.

At least two state representatives - who throughout the whole Bentley scandal over the last year have been judicious and slow to cast stones- have had enough and are ready to act.

Reps. Corey Harbison and Randall Shedd, both Republicans from Cullman County, say the time for tolerance is gone. They will begin today to try to introduce an impeachment resolution on the House floor, a move - difficult though it may be -- to bypass the inactive impeachment committee and send the issue directly to the Senate for trial of the governor.

"Something has to give," Harbison said. "Public trust toward all of us is at an all-time low. We have to get some answers."

"I just don't believe the state can stand another two years of this," Shedd said. "It's very disturbing."

The resolution, similar but expanded from one introduced last year, cites ethics charges against the governor. It says he misused state property and broke campaign finance law by failing to disclose a campaign loan in a timely way. It says using campaign funds to pay attorney's fees for Mason was a big problem, and argues that Bentley violated the public trust and broke the law by waiting until 2018 to call a new election to fill Jeff Sessions senate seat.

But it's not just the legal problems that spurred action. Putting Mason on a state plane to attend the inauguration of Donald Trump last month - while taking a "date" he refused to identify on a state plane - was a slap in the face to people who supported him.

The appointment of former Attorney General Luther Strange to the Senate looked like a Bentley attempt to dismantle the AG's investigation of him. The subsequent appointment of former Marshall County District Attorney Steve Marshall did little to ease the minds of those who smelled a rat.

"I'm troubled by the appointment," Shedd said. "There may not be a deal cut but it sure seems like it."

At a time when Democrats need to be lions, most have turned to lambs at Trumps feet

Source: New York Daily News

At a time when a backbone is needed, the Democratic Party does not have one. With few exceptions, it is a spineless group. They have no earthly idea how to effectively oppose Donald Trump. They have no idea how to regain power. They have no idea what they are doing right now. Daily, they fail to stand up for their constituents — so much so that it is genuinely hard right now tell most Democrats in the Senate from their Republican colleagues.

So far, and this actually came as a shock to me — 14 Democrats in the Senate have voted for every single nominee of Trump’s that has been approved thus far. They are:

Joe Donnelly of Ind., Dianne Feinstein of Calif., Heidi Heitkamp of N.D., Maggie Hassan of N.H., Amy Klobuchar of Minn., Angus King of Maine, Tim Kaine of Va., Claire McCaskill of Mo., Joe Manchin III of W.Va., Jack Reed of R.I., Jeanne Shaheen of N.H., Brian Schatz of Hawaii, Sheldon Whitehouse R.I., and Mark Warner of Va.

Another 21 Democrats voted to confirm four out of five of Trump’s nominees that have been approved thus far. They are:

First off, Senator Christopher Murphy of Conn. voted to approve four out five of Trump’s confirmed nominees, but abstained from one vote a piece. In other words, he failed to vote no on a single Trump candidate.

Then voting yes on four out of five of Trump’s confirmed nominees, and voting no on just one are:

Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Tammy Baldwin of Wis., Michael Bennet of Colo., Maria Cantwell of Wash., Benjamin Cardin of Md., Thomas Carper of Del., Bob Casey of Pa., Richard Durbin of Ill., Tammy Duckworth of Ill., Al Franken of Minn., Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Patrick Leahy of Vt., Edward Markey of Mass., Robert Menendez of N.J., Patty Murray of Wash., Bill Nelson of Fla., Gary Peters of Mich., Chuck Schumer of N.Y., Debbie Stabenow of Mich., and Jon Tester of Mont.

If This Is True, This Is A HUGE PROBLEM. HUGE!! This means from reading the article, only Kristen Gillibrand have voted NO on Each of the Trump Nominees thus Far. Not even BERNIE folks, only Gillibrand.

If this is the way the Democrat Party will ROLL, the Party is DONE and look for Trumpland to not only continue but stomp out the rest of what's left of Democrats in 2018 up for the Senate and whatever is left in State Legislators.


Meanwhile, thank you KRISTEN GILLIBRAND for standing STRONG and appears ALONE.
