Congress Finally Did Something

July 22, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Well, this is kinda fun.  The only damn thing that Congress can agree on is that Donald Trump cannot be trusted.

Congressional leaders have reached an agreement on sweeping sanctions legislation to punish Russia for its election meddling and aggression toward its neighbors, they said Saturday, defying the White House’s argument that President Trump needs flexibility to adjust the sanctions to fit his diplomatic initiatives with Moscow.

So here sits Donald Trump.  If he vetoes this sucker, that means that he’s in Putin’s pocket.  If he accepts it, Putin’s pocket is gonna get kinda tight around Trump’s patootie.

It’s not written in cement yet.

There are still hurdles to clear. Neither Speaker Paul D. Ryan nor Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, immediately issued statements on Saturday to give the agreements their blessing.

It will be fun watching those two bless one side or the other.

    so when does the War on Russia go from cold to hot?

  3. Sorry Putin, it looks like one string on your fat puppet is about to get cut. Better not jiggle him around too much more, or the weight might make the remaining strings go… snap.

    Braw heh heh heh

    Assuming the House vote is as lopsided as the Senate vote, I actually don’t think Trump has a big problem. Trump may be clueless, but Putin is smart enough to know when to Hold-em and when to Fold. No big deal to Putin for Donnie to sign, or let it become law without signature. Save the puppet for another fight.

  6. Woke up this Sabbath morning to see that the WaPo is carrying a front page story on Trump not only gearing up to pardon friends and family AND himself as well. He is nowhere near smart enough to understand that in doing so for himself he is admitting guilt. Ya know, when a President pardons a felon, the pardon does not guarantee him a job. Need I say more, Republicans? This is your MOMENT!!! And I’m not holding my breath. Oh, there’s a long, long trail a-winding . . . .

    Maggie, I agree THIS is your moment republicans prove you are Americans who care about this country and this country alone not your jobs or pleasing your boss. Wait a minute your boss should be your constituents not the guy in the White House.

    These will be easy messages to write our ‘representatives.’ “Hell no, we do not want to bargain Ukraine or Crimea to underwrite Donnie’s Russian debts.”

  9. I saw that story, maggie, and I thought: We’re already talking mass pardons, and it’s been only six months…. Can’t say I’m all that surprised.

    Donnie, put down the toy you don’t know how to play with. You’ve broken parts of it already.
