What is your morality alignment?

It's a boring day, it's hot and raining right now, so Buzzfeed quizzes it is for me today. This one is the most interesting one I found so far, a good old fashioned moral alignment system test. Where do you fall? Mine is neutral good, so....thats fun I guess.


Here is a little chart that seems to give good comparisons from pop culture on what each one means, in case you're unfamiliar.


McConnell has warned Trump that they will abandon him if he doesn't turn things around by Labor Day

This isn't a very new story. A few weeks ago there was an article on Vanity Fair that McConnell had warned Trump that if he can't turn things around by Labor Day that the Republicans are going to basically cut off Trump and leave him to his fate, in order to try to save the senate. Obviously in the time Trump's position has become worse, not better so it isn't looking good. However, to put into prospective how little time Trump has, if McConnell's ultimatum is true, we are only 6 weeks away from the point of no return between Trump and the Republicans. Do you know what happened 6 weeks ago already?



The time between that crime against humanity and today is how much time Trump has left to turn things around. That not a lot....

Edit: Here the article BTW


Do the attacks on Biden's health seem familiar?

I remembered that the Republicans made Hillary Clinton's health a major issue in 2016, after hearing endlessly about "dementia!". So I decided to do some digging and ended up in quite the rabbit hole. Here is a link of 18 different right wing headlines about Hillary's wide ranging, deadly diseases from 2015-2016.


This may prove to be a very unpopular opinion but I think its the Dem's best option

I was reading an article today showing that Biden and Warren are both building strong coalitions within the Democratic Party. Biden solidly has voters that are moderate, older, as well as large amounts of support among minorities and those in the midwest/rust belt areas. Warren is doing extremely well among younger Democrats, liberals, and those with a college education. Essentially the two major wings of the Democratic Party.

Polls still show, on average, that Biden holds a decent lead and while it is early, does extremely well against Trump. I say that if Biden is the nominee, which from where I'm standing looks like the likely outcome (I know its not guaranteed but if he is the nominee), then the Democrats run a Biden/Warren ticket in 2020. I think would unite the Democrats, Trump would be swept from office, and we achieve probably the biggest goal of our time.

I would say then Biden serves for 1 term (despite what some people say I think he is still in great shape but I don't know about him serving until he is in his mid 80's) and then the Dems run Warren in 2024. Biden does one last great thing for the country by chasing Trump out of the white house, he gets his place in history which he has definitely earned, he spends the rest of his life as the elder statesman for the country, and then Warren leads the country into the future.

Again, I'm sure most people will stick their noses up at the idea of Warren not being the nominee in 2020 or Biden not serving two terms, depending on which side you are on but I think long term that would be the perfect scenario for the Democrats and this country.

Did Trump have a stroke?

Look at this pic of his face from today. He doesn't look well

Should we raise money to have the White House checked for carbon monoxide leaks?

The number of people in the administration that can't recall meetings, conversations, emails, and phone calls is concerning. It seems like the amnesia is a systemic problem among the Trump Administration. I'm worried there may be some kind of carbon monoxide leaks in the White house. Should we start a fundraiser to get the place checked for gas leaks or something?

Do you realize Mueller is the Anti-Trump

The two guys are exact polar opposites. I'll name Mueller's qualities and the exact opposite will define Trump.

-Strategic thinker
-Shuns the limelight
-Well respected
-Military veteran
-Highly educated
-Hard worker
-Surrounds himself with good people
-Respect the rule of law
-Self made man
-Thick hair
-In shape
-Normal looking suits
-Normal sized hands

Kind of eerie isn't it?

Trump campaign officials suggested getting 'someone low level' to communicate with Russians

A court document released on Monday said members of President Donald Trump's campaign discussed finding a low-level staff member to communicate with the Russian government so as not to arouse any suspicion.

The detail was included in a footnote in newly unsealed charge against George Papadopoulos, who worked on the Trump campaign as a foreign-policy adviser. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty earlier this month to making false statements to the FBI about his interactions with Russia.

In May 2016, Papadopoulos said in an email to someone described as a high-ranking campaign official that his contacts in Russia wanted to meet with Trump, the court document says.

"Russia has been eager to meet Mr. Trump for quite sometime and have been reaching out to me to discuss," he wrote to the official, who then forwarded the email to another campaign official along with the request that they send a low-level staffer.

"Lets discuss. We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips," the official said, referring to Trump. "It should be someone low level in the campaign so as not to send any signal."


Republican Judiciary chairman: Trump should let Mueller do his job

Source: The Hill

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is urging President Trump to not interfere with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation after Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, was charged on Monday.

"The president should let the special counsel do his job," Grassley, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Spokesmen for Grassley didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Manafort has been charged with 12 counts including conspiracy against the United States, according to the special counsel's office. Manafort’s former business partner and protegé, Rick Gates, who was ousted from the pro-Trump group America First Policies in April, has also been charged.

Seems like the Republicans arent too interested in giving trump cover to fire Mueller.

FBI investigating Whitefish deal: report

Source: The Hill

The FBI is reportedly investigating the $300 million contract awarded to Whitefish Energy to repair Puerto Rico's electrical grid in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

People familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that FBI agents from the San Juan field office are examining the deal and how Whitefish and the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) came to the agreement.

The report comes after Puerto Rico's state-run electric utility said Sunday it had accepted the governor's request to immediately cancel its contract with Whitefish, a small Montana-based energy firm headquartered in Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's hometown.
