Situation unraveling for Trump
I can’t wait for him and his awful children, not all of them, Baron and Tiffany, to be gone and never heard form then again. He has made the White House a symbol of power to the clown house. I miss having a president who wished everyone a happy thanksgiving like the Obama still do. Oh no instead this is what we have to hear
Trump Jr. Urges Fans To Film Themselves Ruining Thanksgiving By "Triggering A Liberal" Family Member
Trigger a liberal thanksgiving!” Trump Jr. tweeted. “Have some fun & talk politics at the thanksgiving table. Best pic/vid of something/someone triggered maybe w/ my book, wins a signed copy of Triggered & a MAGA hat… Tag me in IG pics & I’ll choose by Sunday. Have fun!”
One day a year to celebrate gratitude, and the "family values" party wants to turn it into something hateful. Can't wait to see what they do to Valentine's Day (maybe Cheat on Your Third Trophy Wife While She is Pregnant, with a Porn Star, and Pay Her Off with Stolen Taxpayers Money Day?)
this is something I don't understand. Supposedly the military is very upset with Trump and about Trump. It would seem to me, putting this as delicately as possible, that the military is perhaps the only entity that can do something about him. Isn't that what happens in other countries? You know, the population wakes up one morning and they have a new government? I have a rabble-rousing friend who doesn't understand why we're not pulling a French revolution-type storming of the White House. But what about the military? I know I sound nuts. Happy Thanksgiving. Very discouraged.
Im really curious to see how the GOP attacks the court testimony that Ilhan Omar is a Qatari asset. So far theyve left it alone because the same person who testified that she was, also said they have assets in both parties including Jared Kushner.
First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Second, @mas1581, can you tell us your source for this information?
@baba this is one of a few articles referencing this that Ive seen the last few days. Nothing on either side of US mainstream media
I will have a look at that. After the last several years, I have become more careful about news and information sources and like to know, as far as possible, where information originated. I wonder if it will show up in the US press and what everyone will make of it.
Im not so sure that it will aside from maybe a local Florida paper. Whether the testimony, or story, is true or not, i do not know, but it is something both sides are probably scared of, since they are both given big blows in. If it is true, Omar and Kushner being implicated will scare off any partisan press because to condemn one side they have to condemn the other as well.
At least 5 times I keep getting pinged whenever I see or read about Giuliani, Mulvaney, Pompeo, in relation to Trump "they will all go down together" that song by Billy Joel which is actually about something very different. That one line and spirit tells me it is meant in the literal sense... they will all go down together. This fits with the nature of Trump.
Also pinging... watched "The Irishman" on Netflix, a very long mob movie directed by Martin Scorsese. It's about the events leading up to and after the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa; also the politics with the Kennedys'. One thing is interesting, the appointment of Robert Kennedy as his brother's Attorney General, that it was controversial and I can only imagine what we would say if Trump did the same thing. Also, Hoffa continually calling him "Boobie Kennedy" reminded me so much of Trump and even of politics today because many people call him "Drumpf" etc. Although, in my mind, while we are all guilty of name-calling" the behavior of the person in office of the President is truly held to a higher standard.
Now, it is all fiction. This is not a "true story" however, it is a reflection of the corruption of that time which also mirrors the corruption of our time. The indication is that government and big business took over the role of organized crime (they basically jailed/chased out the Mob and demonized and outlawed much of Big Labor... in effect winning the turf war and honestly, if I know one thing, Hoffa would have never allowed the conditions that Bezos runs in his warehouses to exist--not even close). It is really a story of double-crossing, arrogance, greed, ego and ruthlessness. Hoffa "disappeared" after making a lot of accusations and pointing fingers and basically behaving in an unhinged manner. Most everyone involved, even peripherally went to prison--even on diminished charges and/or were killed.
It was kind of a reminder of the real consequences. Then I read this article in Vanity Fair about the Nixon impeachment and aftermath. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/11/trumps-toadies-should-take-note-watergate-says-everyone-goes-down
I really feel that all the Democratic candidates need to do is stay out of their own way. Perhaps as the field narrows, the message will be more cogent, focused and clear.
O'Malley slams acting DHS deputy: ‘You cage children for a fascist president’
Former Maryland governor and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate forced Ken Cuccinelli to leave Capitol Hill bar
Donald Trump’s acting deputy secretary of homeland security was called “the son of immigrant grandparents who cages children for a fascist president” on Wednesday night, by a man who forced him to leave a Capitol Hill bar on Thanksgiving eve.
That man was Martin O’Malley, former Baltimore mayor, governor of Maryland and candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
It was the latest in a string of incidents in which angry opponents of Trump have confronted members of his administration in public.
and, yo!, Donnie, this image was *not* photoshopped

reminded me so much of Trump and even of politics today because many people call him "Drumpf" etc.
There are many nicknames given to him. However this one isn't a nickname, it's his original family name until the 30 years war back in the 1600s-according to a biographer who wrote a book about the family back in 2000. They were wine makers in the day from Kallstadt-at the time part of Bavaria (now Germany). There is dispute about whether it is accurate, as records have not been found to substantiate the claim. There are other versions of the name from the past that are also possible as the family name before it was Anglicized. What is not in dispute is that when grandfather Fred came to the US at the age of 16 (signed the registers as Trumpf) in 1885, he had not served his mandatory Bavarian military service, thus making it an illegal immigration. He worked as a barber in NY for 6 years, then moved to Seattle where he owned and operated a restaurant serving liquor and a convenient brothel upstairs for years. He moved around in the northwest, following the gold rush and miners, so that he had a steady line of customers for his restaurant/boarding houses/brothels. In some cases he got the land thru shady deals. When the law started finally showed signs of cracking down on such illicit trades, Fred sold his shares of the business to his partner, and returned to Germany. He was well to do by then. He married, and he and his wife set off for NY, again opening a boarding house, and starting to dabble in the hotel field. So it is family tradition to disregard the law, or think they're above it. Fred C. (45's father) was no different, tho most of his illegal dealings were in real estate. Fred C. was arrested in NY during a KKK march, and suffered many investigations for profiteering.
I stopped trusting polls years ago when I had a couple of statistics classes in college and we learned how they actually work. I don't know who said "Live by the polls, die by the polls" but they were right.
I just read that the Trump campaign is now denying that the "Rocky" twitter post was doctored( . https://www-newsweek-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-campaign-disputes-picture-president-rocky-doctored-1474789?amp_js_v=a2&_gsa=1&=1&usqp=mq331AQCKAE%3D#aoh=15751341980463&csi=1&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s&share=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newsweek.com%2Fdonald-trump-campaign-disputes-picture-president-rocky-doctored-1474789 )
Is this a joke or do they really want us to believe that? If this is what they are trying to convince people of, we are one step from North Korea, where they still insist that Kim Jong Un doesnt defecate because he is greater than normal humans and doesnt need to partake in anything vile like that.
Sometimes the JPost prints conspiracy theories, and this looks like one of them. The clue is their claim that only Muslim Brotherhood calls Ilhan "Sister Ilhan". Muslims call any member of their faith brother or sister, in the same way that many Christian sects call their members brother or sister. If they didn't know that basic fact, I'm extremely skeptical of the entire article.
