Saw this little saying on a T-shirt thought it summed it up nicely.
"voting is like driving - select D for going forward, or select R to go in reverse"
I fucking wish it wasn't true though
I really wanted to like Republicans after being raised conservative, they just make it impossible
Agreed, there's conservative, then republican - they're no longer one in the same.
I commented a bunch in a /sub/neoliberal post and all responses happened at around 2:30 am... 🤔
LOL perfect headline. Mueller don't leak baby!
Here's my thought on this.
The investigation needs to continue until all matters of wrong doing are found and prosecuted.
Not because it's Trump. ... but because it's high time for these corrupt bastards (R, D, or pick your party) to go DOWN. ... and I mean prison. Hard time. Ruined. Forever. Maybe, just maybe this will give pause to the other greedy/corrupt assholes that perhaps they ought not to do the crime, because if you get caught, you're toast. In this particular invetigation, it just so happens to be a bunch of "R"'s involved.
I can at least dream.
Hahaha. Idiots keep demanding him to wrap up the investigation but then give him more to investigate by obstructing his efforts to wrap up the investigation. Hmmm
From Giuliani? Fuck that addled-brained char-grilled dick burger.
Holy cow I'm cracking up over here.
“But at the end of the day, the public will have confidence that the cases we brought were warranted by the evidence and that it was an appropriate use of resources.”
That's about as close as he can get to saying that there's more coming and hold onto your hats.
Jim Jordan is my congressman. He won’t take a meeting with me. I’m considering running against him if he wins again (which he totally will, because I live in backwards ass central Ohio)
Imagine what he’s seen? What he’s signed off on. I feel like he knows trump is screwed and is taking it on the chin each time treasonous Republicans like Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz try to interfere.
*On-track, and turning a profit. Swan is giving old white men in DC night terrors.
At least the press is covering the news.
Edit: Oh god... I just saw this post
From that post:
From the NYTimes just now:
After he was shown into the office of the Saudi consul, Mohammad al-Otaibi, the agents seized Mr. Khashoggi almost immediately and began to beat and torture him, eventually cutting off his fingers, the senior Turkish official said.
“Do this outside. You will put me in trouble,” Mr. al-Otaibi, the consul, told them, according to the Turkish official and the report in Yeni Safak, both citing audio recordings said to have been obtained by Turkish intelligence.
“If you want to live when you come back to Arabia, shut up,” one of the agents replied, according to both the official and the newspaper.
“Horrendous tortures were committed on Khashoggi, who came to the consulate for documents,” the Yeni Safak account said.
As they cut off Mr. Khashoggi’s head and dismembered his body, a doctor of forensics who had been brought along for the dissection and disposal had some advice for the others, according to the senior Turkish official.
Listen to music, he told them, as he put on headphones himself. That was what he did to ease the tension when doing such work, the official said, describing the contents of the audio recording.
Such information would not have been disclosed in Turkey without the consent of the government. Turkish media outlets and newspapers are closely controlled: They are either government-controlled or owned by pro-government business executives. Censors are often present in newsrooms, and reporters and editors take close instructions from officials in the presidency.
Apparently, the audio he took of himself being tortured shows his fingers were being cut off...
Not sure if this is legit as source isn't known to being reliable.
They blame Hillary. Or Obama. Or Obama and Hillary.
Hypocrite scumbags at work, 24/7.
She seems to have been able to keep out of the headlines.... is she doing an ok job or is it just that the rest of the dumpster fire is burning too bright to notice?
She probably does nothing.
And WWE is about to head over to Saudi Arabia this week for a big show.
If they lured this man into that consulate, they went medieval on him, and he was killed, and he was chopped up and they sent a death crew down there to kill him and do all this, that would be an outrage.
It's a good thing he weighed in. I was beginning to wonder whether chopping someone up wouldn't just simply be a misunderstanding between two parties who want the best for each other. Now I see that it might be considered rude behaviour to kill and saw another person into pieces. Thank you, senator Rubio.
Meanwhile, Trump is deflecting for Saudi, and trying to make the whole thing about Khashoggi's citizenship:
And Don Jr. is also busy pushing nonsense conspiracy distractions:
Don't get me wrong, this season of Donnie and the Trumpkins is riveting, but there're so many references to the extended universe that keeping track of the story can be kind of a challenge.
It was hard enough finishing the Putin Power trilogy, but the middle east has nearly two thousand years of fan fiction to catch up on.
Maybe it was some 400lb guy living in his mom's embassy, we don't know.
Does Trump realllyy want to go out on a limb before that violent, explicit Turkish video is released?
Can we start investigating Mitch yet? He's some sort of Dr Who device, a shriveled, venal, old man on the outside. Infinite graft and contempt (for everything) on the inside.
He's distracting us away from investigating all the Republicans. Follow the money people and start with the NRA and anything begins with R and rhymes with Prussians.
Don't be surprised when the line of investigation leads to Secretary of Transportation Elaine (Mrs. Mitch McConnell) Chao and her family.
Mitch is probably my least favorite.
But Putin denied everything in the strongest possible terms!!!
Remember, the russian GRU operatives tried to stamp on his phone to "destroy" it, Dutch intelligence officers laughed at their amateurism.
People overestimate Putin's intelligence. People who have interviewed him say he is pretty dumb. It's in his interest to portray him as all-powerful. Steele is fine.
The Daily Mirror is a British national daily tabloid newspaper founded in 1903. The Daily Mirror is not known for high journalism. It is a sensationalized tabloid with very bold headlines and little substance. It sometimes is not factual. (5/13/2016)
Putin needs to be eliminated from the stage.
They never learned how. They went directly from Soviet control, to Russian Mob control, which became Putin control.
Hopefully it's the Russian citizens who decide to finally take the country back.
You really have to wonder why? What's the value of that kind of kompromat when you have eighteen women claiming harassment or sexual assault, a porn star claiming adultery, 400 million something in tax evasion, money laundering for decades, asking the Russians to hack the DNC on national television, and more lies than there are stars in the sky.
At this point, who cares?
