Apparently They Think That’s Okay

Trump’s defenders have moved on from “no collusion, no obstruction” to “yeah, it’s true, so what.” As indisputable truths, regarding Trump’s relationship with Russia, become common knowledge, thanks to the redacted version of the Mueller Report, the direction their argument has taken was an inevitability.

Russians bought “a couple of ads on Facebook” …so what? ~ Jared Kushner

“There’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians.” ~ Rudy Giuliani

“I don’t care what they talked about.” ~Lindsey Graham said, regarding Donald Trump told former White House Counsel, Don McGahn, to fire Robert Mueller and then say it was his idea.

None of the statements listed above are based on the law, as those who made the comments are well aware.

An unsuccessful attempt to obstruct justice is as illegal as a successful one. Not achieving the desired result is irrelevant.

Along the same line of reasoning, if you are an unfettered idiot who committed treason, you are still a traitor. Someone tell Don (If it’s what you say I love it), Junior; his apparent exoneration by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, from the Trump Tower meeting, based on his absolute stupidity, is not the end of that story. Junior did not help himself by repeatedly committing perjury, and his penchant for spewing remorseless rhetoric on social media isn’t helping him either.

Robert Mueller did not indict Donald Trump, or his (redacted) family and cohorts, which resulted in cries from the right that it’s time to move on, because “Mueller found no wrongdoing.” There is enough in Mueller’s report to impeach and to indict, but Mueller left it to Congress to do in that order.

Still, there is resentment festering among the American people who believed Mueller would save us Trump’s corruption.

I am by no means ready to join the faction who are angry at Robert Mueller because he did not take Trump off the hook; he handed the pole to Congress, with Trump and his team dangling from it… perhaps with enough line to hang themselves. Bill Barr tried to cut the line, but the line was too thick. The full un-redacted report and its corresponding evidence will be seen by Congress, eventually. The report recommends impeachment, with the understanding that Trump will face charges when he’s dethroned.

Bob Mueller has also distributed specific findings that may be of use to some of the other active investigations currently underway targeting Trump, his family, and his associates:

  • Bill Barr’s DOJ has no jurisdiction over state investigations, making them a more significant threat to the traitors in the White House.

    I am going to speculate that among the redacted, besides Trump, Don Jr, and Jarvanka, is Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Mitch McConnell, Devin Nunes, perhaps Matt Gaetz, maybe now Bill Barr. My conjecture is based on Hamlet:

    “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” ~William Shakespeare.

    They have randomly skipped around the five stages of death.

    1. Denial: “No collusion, no obstruction!”
    2. Anger: “FIRE EVERYBODY… then say it was your idea!”
    3. Bargaining: “You can keep your job if you’re willing to sacrifice your future employability.”
    4. Depression: “Oh my God, this is terrible! This is the end of my presidency! I’m fucked.”
    5. Acceptance: “Treason is fine.”

    Mitch McConnell’s refusal to safeguard our 2020 election from the same Russian attack he mitigated during the 2016 election must have garnered some of Robert Mueller’s attention.

    Kentucky group slams McConnell for blocking a bill to protect voters

    McConnell’s obstruction is tantamount to treason. For over two years, he has aided an adversary’s attacks against our country, and his refusal to allow any safeguards to protect against future election interference is nothing less than treason.

    In 2016, McConnell kept Obama from informing the American people that they had been manipulated by targeted propaganda… not the story Kushner is selling, “a few Facebook ads.”

    Sunday, on Face the Nation, Lindsey Graham’s interview was an exercise in fence straddling worthy of an Olympic event. He vehemently agreed Russians hacked the 2016 election, but disagreed with Kushner’s portrayal of the tampering, claiming “Trump has a team working on the situation”, (*spoiler alert- he doesn’t), and Graham stuck the dismount when he said “the only way to respond to Russia is financially.”

    The solution he offers is in direct opposition to his voting record, in favor of lifting sanctions.

    A glance at Graham’s voting record gives us a timeline as to when he crossed over to the dark side. It was sometime around 8/2017.

    The Truth is, Trump’s GOP has not taken action to stop Russian election interference at all… it is the GOP lifeline.

    The objective for Trump, his family, and his political enablers is to sway public opinion. Are you buying into this new tactic they’re selling— that conspiracy, compromise, and obstruction of justice are no big deal? They hope that Trump will not face impeachment if he garners enough support. What percentage of Americans will think that’s okay?

    State Dept. Was Granted $120 Million to Fight Russian Meddling. It Has Spent $0.

    McConnell suggests the voting-rights proposal is ‘socialist.’

    Tracking Congress In The Age Of Trump

    Graham: ‘I don’t care’ if Trump told McGahn to fire Mueller

    Kushner: So Russia Bought “a Couple of Facebook Ads,” So What

    Graham says Russians ‘up to it again’ with election interference: ‘We need more sanctions, not less.’

    “Nobody Disobeys My Orders”

    “If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level. Two can play that game!” ~Donald Trump, November 7, 2018

    The guy who has racked up $99 million grazing at the buffet of Mar a Lago, in between rounds of cheating at golf, feigns concern over taxpayer’s money.

    Yes, this is the same guy whose wife cost taxpayers $1 million per day for half a year, because she didn’t want to leave the comforts of her gilded tower in Manhattan.

    Yes, this is the same guy who is too “smart” to pay taxes; he is worried about your tax dollars, the guy who raised your taxes, so billionaires and corporations wouldn’t have to pay taxes, and so they could take offshore their spoils without retaliation.

    He says he cares about how your tax dollars are spent if it happens to be consumed while investigating his lifetime of crimes.

    Incidentally, the Mueller Report is set to break even, if not turn a profit, through Paul Manafort’s asset forfeiture.

    Trump must sense the tide has turned against him, because even Fox News has reported Trump’s criminality, and his threats have increased in kind. He’s not the only one making threats.

    Mitch McConnell calls himself the “Grim Reaper,” and says:

    “If Trump loses in 2020, I’m blocking everything.” ~Mitch McConnell

    Mitch McConnell: If Trump loses in 2020, I’m blocking everything

    McConnell has been obstructing our democratic process for decades, and he makes this threat as if he isn’t already “blocking everything.”

    McConnell, the great enabler, doesn’t seem concerned about his re-election in 2020, despite low approval rating in Kentucky. His district is so heavily gerrymandered that he will be next to impossible to beat, but it’s worth a try.

    1/2019

    As low as that looks, it is up 5% from the previous year, and in 8/2017 his approval was at 18%. Don’t ask me why it’s improved; I have no idea.

    McConnell is the quintessential example of why our entire system of government needs an overhaul. Why does he have more power than anyone else?

    The GOP has not had the support of a majority of America in decades, and only exists through gerrymandering, the electoral college, and voter disenfranchisement: registration purges, voting machine with “glitches”, closing polling stations in impoverished areas, targeted propaganda—discouraging voting among demographics that typically vote democratic, throwing out mail-in ballots.

    Much of the fraud comes from the Kremlin.

    The 2018 “blue wave” gave Democrats back the house. We may have also won back the Senate, if not for foul play on the GOP side.

    *I use this photo as an example frequently… 😬.

    Cruz’s name popped up on the screen for straight democratic ballots, after the voter had selected Beto. How many of those instances slipped by unnoticed? The excuse was “it was a glitch in the machines.” South Carolina, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan, all had chaotic elections in November, and the will of the people may not have prevailed.

    Consider this:

    Paul Manafort gave the Kremlin polling data from swing states: Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

    Trump shocked everyone who had been following the exit polls, by “winning” those states at a 1% margin.

    My biggest concern for the upcoming 2020 election is voter machine tampering. Propaganda campaigns are well underway, but nothing has been done to secure our voting machines.

    The GOP’s loss, of control of the House of Representatives in 2018, has resulted in them stepping up their plans for 2020… Republican-run states in particular.

    👆🏼Why does Kremlin Barbie have a new patent for voting machines?

    Another concern— if somehow, despite all the trickery, Trump loses, do you imagine he will leave peacefully?

    “Given my experience working for Mr. Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020, there will never be a peaceful transition of power,” Michael Cohen, to the House of Representatives Oversight Committee.

    What Happens When the Walls Finally Close in on Trump?

    Given Trump’s state of mind, his habit of inciting violence, and his tendency to share US information with adversaries, he is a threat to national security. He needs to be removed from office as soon as possible— before 2020.

    Despite the release of the Mueller report, in which a recommendation to impeach was offered, Donald Trump is still lying. He does it because it works. His loyal 34% believe him over their own eyes and ears. Trump did not win the election; he conspired w/Russia and stole it— in exchange for sanction relief.

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/russian-state-tv-spins-mueller-report-if-putin-did-it-he-did-it-for-you

    Donald Trump was not elected by the American people. He does not deserve the protections he perceives as executive privilege, because he is a pretender.

    What Trump did WAS and IS wrong, and his obstruction of the investigation, 10-12 times, is not only impeachable, it’s indictable. Anyone else would be in jail. Decide what the truth is for yourself.

    Read the Mueller Report

    👉🏻 justice.gov/storage/report…

    Any sport or competition would forfeit a cheater’s win and give it to his opponent. Mueller did not indict the indictable Trump because he’s president. Trump not a legitimate POTUS and shouldn’t be treated as such.

    Trump is a fraud.

    We must secure our elections.

    Trump is the world’s worst cheat at golf, players and celebs say

    Barr’s Gaslit Announcement

    Q: When does an Attorney General make excuses for a person under investigation?

    A: Today

    Barr exonerated Trump of any interference with the investigation, due to Trump’s “frustration” over the investigation:

    “There is substantial evidence to show that the President was frustrated and angered by a sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency…”

    Barr says Trump felt like the investigation was “interfering ” with his ability to perform his job as president. This is corruption in itself.

    (Meanwhile Trump’s staff prepares Airforce One for departure to Mar a Lago, where he will spend more tax dollars golfing through a long weekend. Prior to today the tab for his golf trips totaled $96 million. Is Trump’s excessive “presidential time” interfering with his job as president?)

    Barr ended his press conference after a reporter questioned him on his decision to spin his own version of the report. Barr shook his head, not unlike a wet dog shaking off water, and left.

    My questions were not asked:

    1. Was Barr chosen as AG primarily because of his letter, in which he stated a sitting president can not be indicted, because of his ties to Russian Oligarchy, or his experience in withholding information in the 1980’s.
    2. Did Mr Mueller abruptly end his investigation, by choice, or was ordered to end it?

    Today we were victims of gaslighting, the obfuscation of Mueller’s words prior to their release— Barr attempted to render the meaning of the Mueller report unclear.

    Representative Nadler, Last night:

    Rep. Nadler: ‘Attorney General Has Taken Unprecedented Steps’ to Spin Mueller Investigation

    Barr, this morning:

    We should see the heavily redacted, and color coated, report late this morning.

    Barr said no one in Trump’s campaign did anything illegal. Okay, Bill.

    I look forward to reading the actual report, and to hearing Mr Mueller speak for himself— when he testifies before congress.

    Biden Under Attack

    The irony of the mode of attack against one of the democrats who is currently considered a threat to win the 2020 presidency, should he decide to run, is astounding.

    bidenfoundation.org/pillars/ending…

    Joe Biden is a fighter on behalf of women.

      He created the violence against women’s act,
      He started the “It’s On Us” campaign to fight on campus sex assault.
      In the 90’s he worked to recruit women to run for Senate
      He has urged women to join the Judiciary Committee.
  • amp.usatoday.com/amp/3330357002
  • I dont know who put together this collage of Biden displaying the same “too huggy” behavior toward men, but it proves the point.

    In contrast, we have Donald Trump who, by his own admission, has committed sexual assault, has been formally accused of child rape, and of assault by over 20 other women… but no one cares about that.

    The incongruity of the accusations against Joe Biden, being “too huggy,” is beyond comprehension.

    Biden comes from the generation of politicians kissing babies on the campaign trail. He DOES need to moderate his behavior, but I don’t believe for a minute that he meant to make anyone feel uncomfortable or that he was making sexual advances.

    ~~~~~

    The following is former Senator Jean Carnahan’s account of her experience with Joe Biden:

    “I worked with Joe Biden in the U.S. Senate. I’d like to share some thoughts about my time with him.

    I arrived in the U.S. Senate after losing my husband and son in a plane crash weeks earlier. As I stepped down from the platform, where I was sworn in by Vice President Gore, waiting at the landing was Joe Biden.

    Joe had entered the Senate in 1973, weeks after experiencing the loss of his wife and daughter in a car crash. Joe didn’t know me, only my loss during the final days of the 2000 campaign for the Senate seat in Missouri.

    Joe took both of my hands in his and looked me in the eye for a long while before he spoke. He said simply, “I know, I know.” For a brief moment we were two souls joined by a loss that changed our lives. After that, Joe would often pause to ask how I was getting along.

    It was his empathy and encouragement more than that of any of my colleagues, that gave me strength to meet each day. And, yes, I sometimes, got a shoulder pat or even a head kiss. Joe has a deep desire to share in the lives of others—their grief, pain, and joy.

    He reaches out through the human touch to connect and express those feelings. As Mother Teresa said, “People have forgotten what the human touch is, what it is to smile, for somebody to recognize them, somebody to wish them well.”

    Joe has not forgotten this; it’s part of who he is. Like everything else about his big, Irish personality, he expresses those feelings with exuberance and sincerity.

    It’s been said that healing from a loss is like having a pebble in your shoe. It’s always there, but you keep on walking. Joe, keep on walking. Our country needs a little humanity right now.”

    ~ Jean Carnahan, former US Senator, St Lois, MO

    Joe Biden is a good guy.

    These hypocritical political attacks are pure propaganda. It will be aimed at whom ever is polling well. See it for what it is. They are a reflection of those who create it and put it out there.

    Lucy Flores with Bernie Sanders
    This all started with Lucy Flores, a woman on the staff of another presidential hopeful, Bernie Sanders. It was a baseless political based attack. She said he was overly friendly, not in a sexual way, but it made her feel uncomfortable.

    Please.

    Fun Fact Friday

    William Barr works for Trump, not the American people.

    William Barr, has become Trump’s new “fixer.”

    The Justice Department is now a partisan agency.

    Bill Barr’s 4 page summary of Mueller’s report contains only 101 words.

    The length of Mueller’s report has been disputed, but confirmed to be over 300 PAGES. Of those 101 words in Barr’s summary, ALMOST NONE are Robert Mueller’s.

    It reads like a ransom note, cut and pasted. This is a coverup.

    The summary actually contains the quote “does not exonerate him” and yet Trump has said he is completely exonerated. The press is repeating Trump’s imaginary exoneration as if it is in fact a part of Robert Mueller’s report, WHICH NO ONE BUT BARR HAS SEEN.

    If the report exonerated Trump, like they say it does, his new fixer wouldn’t be sitting on it.

    Now that the GOP claims Trump has been vindicated, they’re calling on Adam Schiff to resign from congress… for investigating Trump.

    I don’t have cable, no MSNBC, no Rachel Maddow😩, but I was told she played the entire clip of Schiff’s statement to his committee. I found it on YouTube. 👉🏻 http://youtu.be/79gJB9iUqkM

    Trump wants congressman ‘forced out of office’ for investigating him

    The following congressmen, on Trump’s orders, penned a letter demanding Adam Schiff resign.

    Demand they resign.

    Call them:

    Nunes 202-225-2523

    Conaway 202-225-3605

    Crawford 202-225-4076

    Hurd 202-225-4512

    Ratcliffe 202-225-6673

    Stefanik 202-225-4611

    Stewart 202-225-9730

    Turner 202-225-6465

    Wenstrup 202-225-3164

    “To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

    ― Theodore Roosevelt

    Remember Ken Starr who investigated Bill Clinton for five years? When he released his report, he distributed copies to the Democrats, the Republicans, and the Attorney General, on a Wednesday. By that Friday the entire report was available to the public.

    What the hell is this👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼?

    Attorney pedophile, and pedophile attorney, Alan Dershowitz, has published a book on the Mueller report, (the cover similar to the published Ken Starr report), DESPITE THE FACT THAT NO ONE HAS READ THE MUELLER REPORT, and Alan Dershowitz is not involved in the case.

    👆🏼Remember that tweet, written after Trump and Putin met privately in Helsinki?

    As a result of Robert Mueller’s investigation, 5 people have been sentenced to prison, 1 convicted at trial, 7 pleaded guilty, 37 people and entities charged, 199 overall criminal counts. Trump would like us to ignore it all.

    And look at this what this man tweeted, in dispute of the Barr letter. 👇🏼

    Trump says he’s innocent, but he won’t let us see the report. He wants us to take his word for it, the billionaire who won’t show us his taxes, the genius who threatens the schools he attended not to release his grades.

    There has been no press conference by Mueller, Barr, or Rosenstein, discussing the conclusion of the investigation.

    Bill Barr says he will offer Congress a more comprehensive summary of the Mueller report, not the Mueller report, his version again… perhaps 5 pages and 125 words this time.

    THIS IS A COVERUP.

    This will lead to GOP –🦕 extinction 2020
