Why is the media waiting on a Republican to call for Trumps resignation?

I'm sick of watching the very same media who was complicit in electing Donald Trump, look at these politicians and wait on them to say the words.

Why wont somebody John Hancock up to the live tv world and say, "Mr. President, it's time you left for the best of the country."

Other than not wanting to be the first person to do that, I maybe can sympathize a little? > * < Somebody has to be the first, when John Hancovk signed that treasonous document that could have him swing from the gallows. He bellied up to the table and made damn sure, the entire world know who John Hancock is.

Does anyone else think Arapio, Trump, Russia have anything in common?

There is just to much that is connecting these two guys

Joe Arapio and Trump were attached at the hip during the Obama years. They both led the charge that President Obama was a foriegn born Muslim. They both used the term 'Witch Hunt' to describe his trial. Trump pardoned Arapio, but who is paying Arapios legal and living fees?

Who put these two in contact with each other?

Arapio was no political hack. He was being investigated for hiring investigations to get a file going on a judge who was a political rival.

Legel Fee trouble

IRS Form990]

Virginia non-profit organization, the National Center for Police Defense Inc., is legally sending contributions to Arpaio. However, one donor alone donated a half million dollars. I'm not a forensic auditor but I got the tax form from them. It would be interesting to see where that money came from.

I do know one thing, I'd love to see the both of them in some pink striped jail clothes on these two guys.

Anyone watch the series on FX The Americans?

Now that its widely known the Russians spy Maria Butina is, well. . . a spy from Russia. Is it to much to assume that she is From Russia, With Love? (Sorry had to) Her boyfriend Paul Erickson was deeply rooted into Republican politics, the NRA, even a member of Trumps transition team.

So for anyone that has seen that show, how is the current live episodes stack up with the old seasons? I mean we now have a foxy red haired vixen that seduced that bald guy. . . whats his name, Paul. Its totally obvious that she is gonna be a honey trap and get embedded into his politics. I dunno, I like the old series better

Trump's Inauguration Paid Trump's Company -- With Ivanka in the Middle

Here are some snippets, with the link at the bottom to the story.

It seems that Ivanka Trump will definitely be needing a good lawyer in the very near future, if not already. I cannot state how happy I am that the light is seemingly being shown on the dark corners of this Crime Family. I say that in the way a narcissistic person would think that about themselves being elected as the leader of the free world and combining it with his criminal family enterprise. Trump has long skirted the law, shady casino dealings, racist home lending practices, and instead of honoring the absolute honor it should be to lead this country he has treated the office as nothing more but a pad to his Criminal Family. It saddens me, as someone who has had the absolute honor leading men and women in life or death situations, see somebody sully the office and what leadership actually is supposed to mean.

During the planning, Ivanka Trump, the president-elect’s eldest daughter and a senior executive with the Trump Organization, was involved in negotiating the price the hotel charged the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee for venue rentals. A top inaugural planner emailed Ivanka and others at the company to “express my concern” that the hotel was overcharging for its event spaces, worrying of what would happen “when this is audited.”

If the Trump hotel charged more than the going rate for the venues, it could violate tax law. The inaugural committee’s payments to the Trump Organization and Ivanka Trump’s role have not been previously reported or disclosed in public filings.

“The fact that the inaugural committee did business with the Trump Organization raises huge ethical questions about the potential for undue enrichment,” said Marcus Owens, the former head of the division of the Internal Revenue Service that oversees nonprofits.

And the beat goes on

Anyone know who Gov. Rick Scott replaced Brenda Snipes with?


It's interesting, he appointed Enterprise Florida president and CEO Peter Antonacci, who will be in charge until the 2020 election. Big suprise there.

Anyone else know anything about this guy?

The case for Pelosi to become leader again.

Any nonsense of her age is just that, nonsense. In the the past few months she has been on the campaign trail raising millions of dollars for the Democrats war chest. She has also campaigned for countless Democrats up for reelection or election. She has done all this IN SPITE of her age. I can only hope that when, or if I get to her age. That if I could even match %5 of what she has done for this victory, and make no doubt, this is her victory (obviously she didnt do this on her own) .

I'd like to hear from the people who dont think she should be Speaker and the case against it. I dont think it is against the TOS here to discuss the pros (which camp I obviously am in)and the cons of being the next House Leader.

The Greatest Generation

I know there can at times be negative connotations about the phrase Greatest Generation in regards to racism and other issues of the time.

I just would like to make a post to The Greatest Generation. Any blockbusters major action movie have tales that pale in the comparison to the men and women who fought the last centuries greatest villian, Adolf Hitler.

There are the tales of African Americans breaking boundaries in the true stories of the Red Tails, to the Japanese that fought in Italy to prove their loyalty to the United States. There are countless stories of French Resistance being put to death by firing squads of the Nazi Regime, to other heroics like escorting dozens of downed Allied Aircrew back to friendly lines.The movie storyline, "I showed a picture of my girl Betty Jean" and is then shot immediately following that are all based in tales of honor, courage, and at times during an all out war on humanity, to tales of compassion that would only seem to have been made up in the movies.

I salute you.
