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.

Ted Cruz refuses to say that Russia is our enemy or that Trump did anything wrong.

 

 

So you gotta wonder:  what does Trump have on Ted Cruz?  Do you think maybe Cruz’s dad really did kill Kennedy?

More Boasting – This Time from the Russians

May 20, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Russians

If all this were in a mystery novel, no one would believe it; they would think it was too far-fetched.  The latest shoe to drop is that, during the campaign last year, US intelligence intercepted communications from Russians who were bragging that they already had Michael Flynn in their pocket and could use him to influence US policy should Trump be elected.  ALL of that came true.

The next shoe to drop will be the identity of the current senior advisor to Trump that has been labeled a person of interest.  My current guess is that it’s Jared Kushner, but who knows? It could be Ivanka since she was pushing he clothing line in Russia during the campaign.

This slow-motion train wreck threatens to come completely off the rails

Honey, if “probably” is the best they could do

 

He took money from Russia and Turkey and then didn’t reveal that when he wanted his security clearance back to serve President Trump.

Here’s the Fun With Republican Math part.

Chaffetz stressed that the government ought to “recover the money” that was paid to Flynn by foreign entities — a figure that would at least be in the tens of thousands of dollars.

We know he took $45,000 from Russia and more than $500,000 from Turkey so, yeah that’s tens of thousands.  That’s 545 tens of thousands.

Flynn could face jail time but don’t count on Jeff Sessions to make a big deal of it.  Or to even see it. I don’t even think Sessions even casts a reflection in a mirror at this point.

 

Somebody Finally Said It

April 05, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Yesterday, in a remarkable made-for-television moment, Texas representative Joaquin Castro finally said it:

“I wouldn’t be surprised after all of this is said and done that some people end up in jail.”

It came during an interview on CNN about the House investigation into Russia’s meddling in our election and the more than creepy warm and fuzzy relationship between Trumpworld and Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.

FINALLY, someone in Washington has said what millions of Americans have been thinking.
