“frankly disgusting”

What is actually frankly disgusting is that the United States has a leader so ignorant of history, and so morally bankrupt that he cannot comprehend that a free press is one of the bulwarks of a democratic society. We need more investigative reporting, not less.

What is actually frankly disgusting is that Congress refuses to act to remove this incompetent and dangerous moron from office he holds. History will condemn their failure to act as a complete betrayal of the public trust. The press needs to hold Conress accountable.

The press needs to “double down” on their scrutiny of the #BLOTUS to ensure the entire world knows what a greedy, racist dotard he truly is. As long as the #BLOTUS is in the White House, we need to rename his space. It’s no longer the Oval Office. It has officially become the Offal Office.

another promise, another lie.

We have a pathological liar in the White House. And that is not fake news. Isn’t it time we held him accountable?

I agree. Do you?

Haven’t we seen enough to realize that we have been attacked by the Russians? This is not a partisan issue. Our electoral process was severely compromised, and it was accomplished by Russia with the help of the #BLOTUS and his inner circle. It truly appears to be far more than just collusion.

When a foreign power attacks the United States, that has always been known as an act of war. When a citizen or citizens of the United States provide aid to an enemy of the United States, that has always been known as treason.

The United States has strict laws against treason. Isn’t it time that ALL MEMBERS of the United States House and Senate do there job and bring appropriate charges against all those involved?

And, if our elected officials refuse to act, for whatever reason, partisan or other, every one of them needs to be held accountable at the polls, if not face charges of aiding and abetting treasonous activities themselves.

Am I the only one that feels this strongly? I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject.

The Trump Way

This photo taken in Mumbai, India is worth far more than a thousand words. And it is extremely timely, as well.

On his very first full day in office BLOTUS began  with an egocentric presentation at the CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia attacking the press. It was his normal “more lies than truth” routine. At issue was the size of his smaller than average hands inauguration crowds. (Obviously, size does matter for our country’s new Liar-in-Chief)

Then, only hours later his press secretary gave a five minute press statement again attacking and denouncing the press while repeating the BLOTUS lies. Naturally, none of the press were allowed to ask questions.

The Trump Way is to lie about the lies he lied only hours or days earlier. He castigates the press because facts are not his friends.  I stand with the press. We must not give in to the bullying and intimidation of BLOTUS. We must not tolerate the “gaslighting.” We all must hold him accountable for ever lie he spews forth, large or small.

The Trump Way is the way of dictators and despots throughout history. But, it is not the American way. And it’s certainly not my way.

 

at its core

Just in case you were wondering, Dan Glickman set the record straight in his May Day presentation.

“Food production in this country is a complicated and important endeavor comprised of a set of issues and debates that span trade, environment, insurance, finance and beyond. But at its core, agriculture policy is about making sure that people, in the United States and abroad, can grow or afford enough nutritious food for themselves and their families.” Dan Glickman, May 1, 2014

Since we have over 35 million Americans who are food insecure in the United States, and 25,000 dying every day of hunger and hunger related causes around the world. I cannot but wonder why we continue with a policy that is obviously so flawed. If the agricultural policy is really about making sure everyone can grow or afford nutritious food someone is failing to do their job.

Something is totally messed up “at its core.” Just one question: Who is accountable?
