Placeholder It's Your Call

Bump in pay

I see where MSNBC’s Mr. O’Donnell managed to tell us some fascinating fabrications about our president. And they’re making it look like, oh, he’s sorry, and he might be punished. If I know MSNBC, they’re gonna give the man a raise. That’s how these people operate, strictly on political grounds.

Reflect action

I know it’s school time again, we have to watch out for kids on the streets, on the sidewalks. But they need to help us a little. Come on, kids — wear something reflective so you can be seen in the dark. A couple weeks ago, it was before daylight, and here comes sort of a track team running north on Leonard, taking up the road, in the shoulder, and they’re hard to see at that time.

All goners

I’m watching the report from the inspector general’s office, concerning James Comey, the former FBI director. It doesn’t look good for him and his violation of the laws and oath he took in office. But if these facts are true, and no one is held accountable, whether it be him or Hillary Clinton or any of the others, then our country, our Constitution and our legal system are done.

Man in the mirror

I’d just like to say I’m a little disgusted with Mr. Biden. When he says white people are institutionally racist, I hope he is referring to himself. Because my family is not racist. We don’t care what color a person is; we care about what they’re like on the inside, not the outside. So I would suggest that Mr. Biden take a good look in the mirror when he talks about being a white man and being racist.

Jackpot

Unfortunately, lawsuits and suing have taken the place of the lottery. And everyone’s in on it, from our government officials to the man on the street, because they know they got a better chance of getting money suing someone than they do winning the lottery.

Say what?

I was wondering, was it President Trump or President Obama who told Putin’s aide, “I’ll be able to deal with you better after the election?”

It bears repeating.....”“The president’s efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful,” Mueller writes, describing potential criminal obstruction of justice, “but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests.”







The clear text is the President “endeavored to” influence the investigation

munchman

Read a news report today Where there is to be an investigation into t rump's alleged affairs and illegal payoffs. Made me harken back to the days where morality was a key factor by both parties in selecting a leader, Does anybody











remember the 1988 election year? The front runner and the darling of the Democrats was Gary Hart who dropped his campaign when a mere picture of a young lady sitting on his lap was enough for him to resign and the Democrats, while sad to lose a great candidate like him , were glad he left. The democrats showed the high moral standards of their party.. Now flash forward to 2016 and you have an actual tape of the republican nominee bragging about sexually assault he committee on women and many women stepped forward to acknowledge that they were his victims and what was the response from the republicans. It was not evidence to refute but a lame excuse of "just locker room talk" which does nothing to disprove the claim. And now the little monkees tied to the t rump hurdy gurdy are dancing to the tune of 2020 with even more reprehensible evidence of adultery, pathological lying, and caring not for the American people but is instead a mentally disturbed narcissist who only cares about himself and his self aggrandisement. Strange how a party dominated by religion has no moral base anymore. Now go ahead and make you ad hominem attacks on my person but you might take some of the sting out of my words if you could give a legitimate reason why your political beliefs are far more important the your religious beliefs. Faith is not a very strong foundation.





P.S. Lets not forget about those pesky pictures of t rump laughing and partying with his good friend Jeffrey Epstein, an invited Mara Lago guest. Oh but now he says he barely knew him. Riiiight.

popski

Pesky pictures also include prominent Democrats...including Bill Clinton. You can't impeach a president because of an affair. Maybe lying to Congress...but not an affair.

JohnQTaxpayer

Strange. Where there is munchman's calls for investigation into the Clinton's alleged affairs and illegal payoffs..? Can anyone say, 'Free Pass'..?[whistling][huh]

munchman

You're right just because Billy might have done wrong does that excuse Donnie from doing the same thing, In essence if you say it was wrong for Richardson, Mitchell, and Clinton. then you're saying it was wrong for t rump. So why are you even considering voting for him? I would never have voted for Clinton after the lewinsky affair.

popski

Agree, munchman...and after Bill Clinton lied to Congress about his affair, I didn't vote for him second term. However, we are all flawed individuals...I didn't withhold my vote because of Clinton's affairs...it was because he lied under oath.

popski

Munchman, I might also suggest to you that if your criteria for voting for a candidate rests in whether or not they have had an affair, etc...you may not be voting in the upcoming election...

Question, aj...do you spend as much time praying for President Trump as you do castigating him in this forum?

Alice Lookingglass

As Christians, we should be in prayer daily for President Trump and for all our leaders. To dislike a person is one thing but to become so obsessed with that person because of dislike is abnormal behavior. Some professionals would classify it as hate induced which may require extended therapy.

WakeUpUS

And yet Vaj0201 classifies himself as a non-Leftist counseling 'professional' but makes endless hate-induced comments against Trump which indicates a need for extended therapy.[tongue_smile]

aj0201

Hate induced? No.

aj0201

Which professionals?

munchman

Do you pray for "The Squad"?

popski

Yes, munchman, I pray for ALL our leaders...including the ones with whom I disagree. I believe that's what God wants of me.

popski

Munchman, you may not like this but I even pray for you from time to time. I don't always think about you, but when I do, I pray that God will take what you know about Him, and renew His love in your heart...and heal the terrible hurt that has made you angry with Him. I pray that I can be as passionate as you about the things I care deeply about...and I pray that when I make it to Heaven, you and I can sit down and have a couple of drinks and talk about a great many things...

popski

I can tell you that the pastor of the church I attend prays for our leaders...and specifically our president...every Sunday. That includes our former president...before the last election. THAT is how Christians must be.

jdw64485

The church my family and I attend prays for our Country and leaders. But we also should be in prayer for our local leaders as well.

popski

I agree, jdw. Our pastor also prays for a specific church and pastor in the Kansas City area. All churches. He also prays for a specific business and it's owner/manager. This happens every single Sunday morning during the service. It's made me understand we Christians are called to participate in our community, our state, and our country.

jdw64485

I agree Alice Lookingglass. I sit aside time each day for prayer. I pray at each meal.

There is a very easy reason to understand why impeachment doesn’t require a crime to happen. You should have learned this in about 10th grade civics. Anyone care to guess?

popski

Well...actually, my civics classes and my US Government class all taught that impeachment was reserved for criminal or corrupt activity on the part of the President. Nothing was said about his/her political opponents using impeachment as a method of removing someone the people elected that they simply dislike.

aj0201

Good grief. Nobody is suggesting impeachment due to dislike.

popski

Well, aj...so far, that's all the Democrats have is a deep dislike for him. If they had ANYTHING else, he'd have already been impeached.

aj0201

“President Obama should have gone to Louisiana days ago, instead of golfing. Too little, too late!”

President Obama has a major meeting on the N.Y.C. Ebola outbreak, with people flying in from all over the country, but decided to play golf“



“Obama has admitted that he spends his mornings watching @ESPN. Then he plays golf, fundraises & grants amnesty to illegals.”



“Only way to get Obama to do right for our Marine would be for every country club across USA to deny him golf access”



“We pay for Obama's travel so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies. Then we pay for his golf”

The criticism of President Trump over his playing golf while Hurricane Dorian ravaged the Bahamas is misplaced. The Bahamas are not a US possession or territory. In fact, they're much more tied to Great Britain than anyone else!

I might add that the President didn't need to be in the Situation Room or even the Oval Office with the hurricane still out to see from the US mainland. He had FEMA and many of his cabinet with him when he was playing golf...and was staying informed of the storm's progress. Any criticism of his actions are idiotic. What would you have him do...calm the storm? Move Florida out of the way? Singlehandedly protect the state and its people? Go to Florida and stand on the beach, defying Dorian to come ashore?

Can you folks not see how dumb this stuff makes you sound?

aj0201

Remember when he promised to be too busy to play golf?

popski

I remember him saying that BEFORE he took office. I also remember thinking he said that, but had no clue how consuming the job really was/is. So...I don't begrudge him leisure time to take a break. It's clear, from looking at previous presidents, that the office takes a huge toll on a person.

If Trump had only played in the holidays, yesterday being Labor Day, I wouldn’t say a word. He’s the one who promised to be too busy to not play golf. He may likely surpass Obama’s 8 years in his first four of playing golf. Yet another broken promise. And an issue he had no problem criticizing Obama for, by the way.

Golf---Liberals were silent when Obama frequently played golf, but they react quite differently to Trump. Double standard?



Frankly, both presidents have a full staff of people monitoring different situations all over the world. It does not matter where the President is physically located in this age of instant communication. People objecting are simply reflecting their own political bias.

aj0201

Umm, Trump specifically promised that he would be too busy to play golf. As far as I can see, he plays golf and watches cable news. He’s constantly tweeting about that he just watched on TV.



But remember, Trump criticized Obama for his golf and promised he wouldn’t have the time. Now he’s on pace to far outplay Obama in golf outings on the taxpayer dime. That’s why he is criticized.

Gun control/liberals---Do you actually believe that criminals will do away with their weapons under stricter control? If someone attempts to break in to your house, would you prefer to be armed or unarmed? The people who do such things are not "nice guys"--there is a good chance they are frantic to obtain money to sustain their illegal drug addiction. There is a good chance the gun they are using is either stolen, or purchased on the underground market. Who would comply with addition gun laws? The good guys. The bad guys will not. Therefore, nothing is solved, except that the bad guys can be more brazen knowing that the people they want to harm are defenseless. Where is the logic in this scenario?

popski

I find that if you're actively looking for reasons to dislike a sitting president, you'll find them. If you're actively looking for collusion/conspiracy with a foreign government by a sitting president, you'll find it.

I still maintain that IF the Democrats had clear and convincing evidence of wrongdoing on the part of President Trump, they would have already introduced articles of impeachment. They haven't because they don't have any evidence...only partisan conjecture. They desperately WANT to have evidence, and they CLAIM to have evidence, but wanting and claiming are vastly different than actually HAVING!!

aj0201

Because you’re blind to the plain text of the Mueller report. The reason they’re not impeaching is because they know it won’t go anywhere in the senate, not due to evidence but due to politics and power. The Dems then are as afraid of losing power as the republicans are. Right and wrong don’t matter anymore. The Mueller report said that it was only due to the fact that Trump subordinates refused to carry out his demands that obstruction wasn’t more clear. And again, despite your ignorant insistence otherwise, no crime need be committed for impeachment to happen. It is a political function, not a criminal one.

popski

I'm blind to nothing. It's just I believe in "innocent until proven guilty", a cornerstone tenet of our US Constitution...and so far, nothing's been proven. I find it alarming so many are willing to toss the Constitution aside for partisan politics.

aj0201

It’s the cornerstone of the criminal justice system, not political office. Otherwise, we wouldn’t bring up missing emails and birth certificates.

popski

Um...what you, and many others, are suggesting, would be criminal acts. You CANNOT impeach a sitting president simply because you don't like him. Impeachment requires that a president must have committed some sort of criminal or illegal act. So far, none of you have been able to prove President Trump did anything illegal or criminal. He is STILL afforded the presumption of innocence...

JohnQTaxpayer

Vaj0201 can't accept that Trump was falsely accused.

aj0201

No it doesn’t popski. Criminal or illegal isn’t part of the impeachment process. That just isn’t true. The Founders debated on this issue and chose “high crimes and misdemeanors” intentionally. In the 18th century they knew it had a specific meaning which was not only about crimes but about breaking the public trust. Repeat this slowly: impeachment is not a criminal process.

popski

OK...so aside from criminal acts...let's focus on the "breaking the public trust". I can assure you that THAT criteria will be satisfied against EVERY SINGLE PRESIDENT from here on out. Any sitting president's opposition will ALWAYS claim a breach of public trust. After all...we don't like the person, right?? Therefore, we, the public, don't trust him/her. So...impeachment will become a commonplace thing!! Is that what you are advocating?

Impeachment was never intended to simply become a way to discard a candidate we don't like...or to be used as a partisan weapon. It was meant to remove an official that has broken the law, become corrupt or in some way, having committed a crime.

I absolutely guarantee that if the Democrats had ANYTHING of substance against the President, they would have already proceeded with impeachment. The fact they haven't is a clear indication they have zilch.

aj0201

“....will become...” popski? It’s always been this way so it won’t become that. It’s honestly one of the good features of partisan politics. But we’ve swung too far to the other side where we are afraid to impeach because they’re too scared to take the loss. We have a president who “endeavored to” obstruct an investigation into his involvement in Russian interference into our election. Whether his attempt obstruct this investigation reaches the level of being a crime is irrelevant. It happened and that is not in dispute. Republicans used to be against those types of things. Now, they defend it.

popski

There is no clear evidence he obstructed anything. There is suspicion...there is innuendo. That's all. If there was clear evidence, he would have already been impeached.

Aj...if impeachment worked the way you are describing, every time someone wins an election, the opposition would move to impeach. How productive would that be? Sorry...I disagree with you on this very strongly.

JohnQTaxpayer

Vaj is actively seeking reasons to dislike our sitting president every day

The Second Coming Of God is getting played like a cheap fiddle....”As North Korea fired off a series of missiles in recent months — at least 18 since May — President Trump has repeatedly dismissed their importance as short-range and “very standard” tests. And although he has conceded “there may be a United Nations violation,” the president says any concerns are overblown.



Kim Jong-un, North Korea’s leader, Mr. Trump explained recently, just “likes testing missiles.”



Now, American intelligence officials and outside experts have come to a far different conclusion: that the launchings downplayed by Mr. Trump, including two late last month, have allowed Mr. Kim to test missiles with greater range and maneuverability that could overwhelm American defenses in the region.



Japan’s defense minister, Takeshi Iwaya, told reporters in Tokyo last week that the irregular trajectories of the most recent tests were more evidence of a program designed to defeat the defenses Japan has deployed, with American technology, at sea and on shore.



Mr. Kim’s flattery of Mr. Trump with beguiling letters and episodic meetings offering vague assurances of eventual nuclear disarmament, some outside experts say, are part of what they call the North Korean leader’s strategy of buying time to improve his arsenal despite all the sanctions on North Korea.”

aj0201

“On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space,” Mr. Obama could be heard saying to Mr. Medvedev, according a reporter from ABC News, who was traveling with the President



“Yeah, I understand,” the departing Russian president said. “I understand your message about space. Space for you ... .”



Mr. Obama then elaborated in a portion of the exchange picked up by the cameras: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”



“I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir,” Mr. Medvedev said, referring to Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin, who just won an election to succeed Mr. Medvedev.



No conspiracy. No collusion. This is a true statement for any President who wins a second term and anyone with a modicum of common sense understands this.
