    Since President Obama took office in 2009,
    clear up to today 01/07/2020, I have had
    to school idiots about the FACTS of the
    so-called “Obama Phone”. For any others
    who have grown tired of hearing/seeing
    this, here are the facts and the SNOPES
    debunking of the right’s BS lie.
    “The Lifeline program originated in 1984, during the administration of Ronald Reagan; it was expanded in 1996, during the administration of Bill Clinton; and its first cellular provider service (SafeLink Wireless) was launched by TracFone in 2008, during the administration of George W. Bush. All of these milestones were passed prior to the advent of the Obama administration.
    The Lifeline program is not directly subsidized by taxpayer monies. It is paid for out of the federal Universal Service Fund (USF) through a fee assessed against telecommunications service providers, who may or may not pass those costs along to their customers:”

    Hmm, Machiavellian scheme or future suicide/Iranian retaliation?
    If Bolton testimony is not a convoluted deflection scheme to
    exonerate IMPOTUS, then good advice to Bolton would be CYA.
    If just Bolton’s willingness to testify elicits a tweet hurricane from
    the dolt, then get your popcorn ready. Otherwise, ho-hum.

    The ERA should rightly be called The Women’s Rights Amendment,
    because it addresses only gender equality. My wife was an activist
    and spent much time and energy in support of the ERA. If you think
    that women already have equality, consider this: Black “men” were
    first given the right to vote in 1870, while women of any race were
    not given the right to vote until 1920, 50 years later. The ERA was
    first proposed to Congress in 1923, 97 years ago. It’s outragious
    that in this Country anyone is treated as a second-class citizen.

    DemoPublican Biden wants to cut Social Security
    "and" C.O.L.A. - Cost Of Living Increase
    2020 COLA is .016. That means that $1000
    gets $16. Hell, just the cost of milk has doubled
    in the past couple of months. IMPOTUS’s
    tariffs are driving all food prices sky-high.
    Chicken-Hawk Biden led the push for the Iraq War.
    Does anyone believe that he would admit that
    mistake and pull out now? Same old, same old.
    Biden is a Republican in democrat’s clothing.



  • @kamal All perfectly normal. Nothing alarming at all. I don’t believe it’s coke, but he certainly snorts something. Anyway, ignore Trump, in the video watch the guy immediately to the right of Trump - that’s General Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. General Milley does not have a poker face, when he sees batshit crazy his face says batshit crazy. Just watch him, holy moly!



  • If you too think it’s too much of a coincidence that that Ukrainian 737 innocently went down in Iran as all that shit was happening… I’m with you.

    Well, if they thought it was a US bomber over their capital they should be.

    Steve Schmidt excoriates Lindsey Graham
    I’m gonna add the word “flaccidity” to my
    repertoire. 😅

    Steve Schmidt, who ran McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, where Graham was a constant presence on the trail, tells me, “We see more examples of this in film and literature, but there are instances of principled men and women laying down their careers in service of what is right. Clearly, that person will never be Lindsey Graham. With regard to the cruelty and abuse that was directed at John McCain by Trump, I think Lindsey’s flaccidity in defending him says a lot about his character. Nobody wants to be in a bar fight when they go out on Friday night. But when someone walks up and punches your best friend in the face, you’ve got to do something. Lindsey has demonstrated he’s the guy who runs out the door.”
    “People try to analyze Lindsey through the prism of the manifest inconsistencies that exist between things that he used to believe and what he’s doing now,” Schmidt says. “The way to understand him is to look at what’s consistent. And essentially what he is in American politics is what, in the aquatic world, would be a pilot fish: a smaller fish that hovers about a larger predator, like a shark, living off of its detritus. That’s Lindsey. And when he swam around the McCain shark, broadly viewed as a virtuous and good shark, Lindsey took on the patina of virtue. But wherever the apex shark is, you find the Lindsey fish hovering about, and Trump’s the newest shark in the sea. Lindsey has a real draw to power — but he’s found it unattainable on his own merits.”

    F*ck me running! I knew that Pelosi was going to
    wait 'til min-Jan to drop the impeachment papers
    on the Senate. That means at least 3 Dem candidates
    (I don’t recall if it’s more) will HAVE to be tied up
    with that instead of campaigning. I don’t believe
    there’s a remote chance that the Senate will vote
    to impeach, so this delay and pointless posturing
    for a month was just political theater? Wow!
    Color me waaay past skeptical.



  • Trump had that general killed to help with his impeachment.


    On Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported: “Mr. Trump, after the strike, told associates he was under pressure to deal with Gen. Soleimani from GOP senators he views as important supporters in his coming impeachment trial in the Senate, associates said.”

    The Journal does not name any of the senators in question, but it does follow a similar report from the New York Times on Tuesday that said the president has been “pressured to take a harder line on Iran by some Republican senators whose support he needs now more than ever amid an impeachment battle.”

    There was no evidence of any threat.

  • Those notes include the Republican Congressional candidate’s plans for the US ambassador to Ukraine? Plans involving tracking her movements, ‘apparently you can buy anything for money over there’, and "if you want her out they need to make contact with security forces.

    Basically, the State Department pulled out the Ambassador over assassination plans. Unsure if this was before or after Trump said she" would go through some things".

  • Hey CBS! Generally, when you’re in a private meeting with gangsters, “take them out” does not refer to firing them from their job.

    “Get rid of her!” is what the voice that appears to be President Trump’s is heard saying. “Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. Okay? Do it.”



  • @kamal The goons Trump was talking to weren’t in a position to fire the ambassador anyway. There is no ambiguity about Trump’s order.

    The audio of what he said is released. And he’s not talking to anyone at the State Department, much less anyone in position to fire the Ambassador (presumably Pompeo could fire her, but that would be about it as Ambassador is about as top level post as you can have at the State Department).

    On the other hand, Yovanovich had to leave immediately because she was being followed:
    “In one message, Hyde told Parnas that Yovanovitch had turned off her phone and computer and that his associates in Ukraine would send updates on the ambassador’s movements. He added, “They are willing to help if we/you would like a price … Guess you can do anything in the Ukraine with money … what I was told.””

    I guess you can have some shady Ukrainians fire the Ambassador for the right price?

    I thought your goon was Dennis and I was safe now that he moved away.
    So you think we have Trump on tape ordering the death of a US ambassador. When he could just fire her, and in fact did fire her. And she’s not dead, she’s fired. Trump talks a lot. He says all the things. Insuring that everyone is pissed at him at one time or another, and everyone is confused at one time or another. I can understand lefties criticizing righties for conspiracy theories connecting the Clintons and various dead people, but at least in those theories, the people are dead. BTW, wouldn’t “PRESIDENT ORDERED AMBASSADOR DEAD” be 3" headlines on every newspaper in the country, forever, if it were true?
