Let me get this straight. Our Health Care is currently safe from being dismantled because...

an 80 year old man is recovering from brain surgery???

And this 80 year old man's health care is some of the best coverage available because it is provided by the United States Senate AND even if they do dismantle our healthcare, this guy still gets his incredibly good coverage because he and his colleagues have made sure to exempt themselves from the Dismantling of Health Care Act of 2017????

It's official. Hillary Clinton was NOT running against Donald Trump.

Hillary Clinton was forced to run against the concerted effort and power of every intelligence agency under the control of the Russian Government.

And she damn near won any way.

I don't EVER want to hear the bullshit nonsense that she wasn't a good candidate. She was a brilliant candidate. Nobody could have won under those conditions and nobody else would have come as close to winning.

It is true, Donald Trump may not have known about his son's meeting on June 9, 2016

What's become clear is that he became aware of it at a laater time and has since engaged in an illegal cover up of that meeting, even to the point of engaging in obstruction of justice by firing the head of the FBI because of the investigation into exactly whaat contact his campaign had with the Russians.

The man even ADMITTED this was why he fired Comey.

There can be no doubt any longer. There are traitors at the highest level of government who sold our country out to the Russians for personal enrichment.

TRUMP KNEW ALL OF THOSE INVOLVED WITH MEETING, INCLUDING THE ATTORNEY!!!!

They. Knowingly. Committed. Treason.

Given what Donald Trump Jr. has now openly admitted to the press and everything else that has been revealed, those are the only four words that matter any more.

There is nothing else that ever needs to be said about the Russian matter from here on out.

They. Knowingly. Committed. Treason.

Seems pretty clear to me, Trump is setting the stage for an Ivanka Trump run in 2020.

You heard it here first. Trump will bow out of seeking re-election and, as with everything else, will completely break with tradition and endorse his own daughter for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2020.

It should be clear to everybody by now. HE has decided that if there was ever to be a woman president, it will be HIS daughter.

Little-Known Challengers Seek To Unseat Bernie Sanders In 2018

Little-Known Challengers Seek To Unseat Bernie Sanders In 2018

A Bridport Democrat who’s never run for public office says he’s mounting a “David vs. Goliath” campaign to oust Bernie Sanders from the U.S. Senate in 2018.

Jon Svitavsky, 59, says he believes that Sanders’ “divisive” politics have fractured the Democratic Party nationally, and paved the way for the rise of Republican President Donald Trump.

“I don’t have any money. I’ve never aspired for office or power,” Svitavsky said in a telephone interview Thursday. “But darn it, I think Sanders has hurt our country very badly with what he’s done.”

Svitavsky announced his campaign on social media Wednesday, though he may not be the only challenger to have entered the 2018 race for U.S. Senate in Vermont. Folasade Adeluola, a resident of Greenfield, Indiana, filed a “statement of organization” with the Federal Elections Commission on June 6, indicating she’s seeking to challenge Sanders as well.

I'm going to watch this closely and determine which challenger to back. With luck, some big money backing will come into play and make this a REAL race in the GE to put a Democrat in that Senate seat currently held by an Independent!

BREAKING: New Study Shows 1 in 3 Trump Supporters....

are just as STUPID as the other 2!

A Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Reports from the Call Center: Episode 1

I work in a call center as a customer support representative. I'm never going to say where I work nor will I say which company for which I am a customer support representative.

I will say that rule #1 in being a customer support representative is that the customer is always right, even when they are not.

I have to listen to customers who are Trump supporters rant about how great he is and even agree with them while on the phone. If I were to disagree with them, I would lose my job in a heartbeat. It's just the way it is. There's no other choice.

I even have to listen to misogynistic crap from certain male callers who whine about getting a female customer support representative and how happy they are that they are now speaking with a male.

It's complete and utter bullshit, but it pays the bills and puts food in my mouth, so what are you gonna do until a better job comes around?

But back to my point. I've listened to Trump supporters and it's become incredibly clear to me, these people have their entire sense of personal existence now wrapped up in supporting Trump to such a high degree that NOTHING will ever sway them from their support. Even if Trump were to perform a third trimester abortion live on television, then proceed to eat the aborted fetus in the most gruesome fashion imaginable it would not sway these people from supporting him and even those deeply devout Evangelical Christians who only voted for Trump due to the abortion issue would proclaim this as the most presidential act in American history.

Folks, these people will NEVER change their minds about Trump no matter what that POS does.

It's time to write these people off as completely and utterly hopelessly lost to the dark side. They will NEVER vote for another Democrat again regardless of their voting history because they have become enamored in a cult of personality and will blindly follow this evil man over any cliff at any time.

The only way to defeat this man in 2020 will be to convince those who never vote but will be incredibly harmed by the damage he is doing to come out and vote. It's time to give those people the political will to actually get involved because the Trump supporters will remain Trump supporters forever. He is their God Emperor and NOTHING will change their minds.
