This quote from George Orwell’s 1984 seems eerily relevant today, doesn’t it? It has become ever more clear that power is the one thing, the only thing, that matters to the #BLOTUS and the Republicans in Congress.
If you need an example, which most thinking folks don’t at this point, just look at the complete Republican support of Roy Moore to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. Having another Republican vote in the Senate outweighs any question of improper or immoral behavior.
The many-times accused molester in the Offal Office has said that having a Republican like the accused child molester, Roy Moore, in the Senate is far preferable to having a Democrat, any Democrat, fill the seat. Moore not only has been accused by numerous women of involvement with them as young and underage girls, the man has twice been removed from his seat as Judge.
None of that matters. All that matters, the only thing that matters, is power, pure power.
Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other. – Oscar Ameringer
This is one of those beautifully simplistic, yet absolutely true definitions that I love.
During these never-ending tax cut debates, it is worth remembering that Warren Buffet once said. According to Mr. Buffet, we could have a balanced federal budget anytime we want one. His solution is as simple as the definition above: No member of Congress is eligible for reelection if they are seated in a year when our budget has more than a 3% deficit.
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.
While the White House waffles and delays any significant response to the deadliest mass shooting in US history, at least one member of Congress tell it like it is. #BLOTUS and his cronies are not about to antagonize their base by taking action. Where does it stop?
Not much to add…it just gets more sad and more shameful by the day. We must hope that Congress will come to its senses and do quickly what should have already happened. Every day this egotistical liar stays in office is another day too long. His time in office will be recorded as one of the most shameful periods in United States history.
About the only thing worse than the #BLOTUS whining and attacking the press here at home, is watching him create havoc abroad. Seeing him shunned by real world leaders is embarrassing, even though understandable. Watching his nepotistic flaunting of Ivanka is worse than embarrassing. Watching him kiss Putin’s ring is just disgusting.
Why does Congress allow this man to remain in office? I, personally do not want a president that openly supports repressive regimes and seemingly idolizes their dictatorial leaders.
I do not want a leader that allows enemy operatives into the White House and gets orgasmic in the presence of our enemy’s leader.And I certainly do not want a leader who trusts the one openly attacking our democracy more than he trusts our own intelligence communities.
This man is under more federal investigations than I can count and has more lawsuits against him than any president in US history. He is a liar. He is totally untrustworthy, and he needs to be removed from office.
We all knew what #BLOTUS was before he was elected and we all know what he still is today. Yet, he was still elected to the highest office in the United States. Why?
Since his election has he done anything other than reinforce what we have known all along? I think not.
Why is he allowed to remain in office? Why is he allowed to continue embarrassing our country every time he opens his filthy mouth? Why doesn’t the Republican-led Congress hold him accountable for his lies and total disregard for the law? Why aren’t we all outraged enough to act?
I have never been more ashamed of my country’s leaders as I am today. Am I the only one?
