Drip-drip.

Image result for russia ambassador us  images All this brouhaha about Jeff Sessions and the rest of the trump team playing let's make a deal with the Russians, and it might not amount to much.

This is because the republicans in congress will do their best to make sure that it doesn't. They have been blocking efforts to investigate at every turn.

I suppose that's how Washington works: Yes, he is a crook, but he is our crook.

What a difference an administration makes. Just imagine if the shoes were on the other foot. If you think the cries of Benghazi were bad, just remember that the cries of Moscow would be ten times worse. 

As for trump's taxes, we might as well forget that as well. It looks like we will never see the taxes of our charlatan in chief. This is because house republicans just voted to make sure that we, the public, never see them.

The president must really love his fellow republicans right about now. They have gotten his back and they have tried to shield him from himself and the law. 

"House Republicans voted en masse to block a resolution that would have forced Trump to turn his tax returns over to Congress on Monday night.
 
The measure was introduced by Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee. Under a 1924 law, the Ways and Means Committee is empowered to examine tax returns. The committee could then decide to release them to the full Congress, effectively making them public.
 
Trump has broken with decades of precedent and refused to release his tax returns, citing an ongoing audit.
 
Pascrell first brought his request to the Chairman of the Way and Mean Committee, Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX). Brady rejected the request, citing concern for Trump’s “civil liberties.”
Pascrell was able to bring the issue to a full vote on the floor through a vehicle known as a “privileged d resolution.”'
 
Protect what's in the swamp at all cost.

Make them live by the same things WE have to tolerate?

Take drug testing a few times a year?

You know....this is not "partisan"

BUT you wouldn't go for it.

Someone explain "why not"?

Hey field!

You are supposedly a smart guy...why don't people burn, loot and destroy, so that regular folks get the same "parachutes" as people in the Senate or House?

Hey Field, why do batty boys use military titles but yet are too cowardly to actually serve. How pussified is that?

An ape Lord of Tarzan said...

Fuck you you treasonist pussy!

Lt. Commander Pussy said...

The White House is being infiltrated by foreign operatives but treasonist batty boys want to change the subject. Sorry, we don't get distracted as easily as you dumb asses.

The rule that the steel used to build the Keystone pipeline be made in America was suspended so a certain country can supply 40% of the steel. Can you guess what country is supplying this steel?

I really like the Republican lawmakers who crowed about Trump releasing his tax returns in front of hostile town hall crowds then went back to DC and voted against him having to do so. Slimy little poltroons, the lot of them.

If Sessions only met the Russians as a member of the armed services committee, why did he charge the Trump election campaign for the cost of the trip?

Know and/or possible links between this administration and Russians.

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

At least 5 cabinet members of Drumpf's have lied under oath.

mike from iowa said...

I believe Drumpf jumed the shark with this Twitter rant-

http://www.rawstory.com/2017/03/trump-goes-on-twitter-rant-accusing-ex-president-obama-of-tapping-phones-at-trump-tower-prior-to-election/?comments=disqus

Drumpf claims the election process is sacred, yet has no problems having Russia hack the damn thing as long as Drumpf won. This guy needs to be institutionalized.

Your source for this blog post is Political Dig. Who are they? Even Wiki has nothing on this outlet called Political Dig.

The author of your quoted source worked for a student news organization, CNS, for 10 years prior to joining Political Dig two years ago.

Do you really find the author or the news outlet credible sources?

mike from iowa said...

Which post are you referring to?

'Cause there's no there there, and all your projectile vomiting of disinformation won't change this. Get over it and get on with it. Or, if this is such a melanin-deprived dystopia, why are you still here?

Lighten up on the hairspray, Anymoose. I asked you which post set you off and you went off again w/o giving me a clew which post you have a problem with. One last time-which post are you referring to? Can you just answer the question?

mike from iowa said...

Anymoose was barfing on Field, not me. Too bad he couldn't come right out and say so.

Shame on you, Field. Your hurt little moose's fee fees. :)

Mike,
Reference: "This is because the republicans in congress will do their best to make sure that it doesn't. They have BEEN BLOCKING efforts to investigate at every turn." Bold is referencing Political Dig article.

The rest of Field's post seems to be a Think Progress quote which I don't believe Field referenced. Think Progress is about as credible as Breitbart.

The other Anonymous wasn't me responding.

Nazi troll complaining about sources.

That's Olympic Gold winning levels of hypocrisy right there.

field negro said...

My lord! You can't make this stuff up. Now the charlatan in chief is accusing Obama of tapping the phones in trump towers during the elections.
Someone please take away that man's twitter account before he gets us all killed.

mike from iowa said...

Now that Drumpf has made it public about the FISA wiretap, no one who leaked can be charged with leaking-according to people in the know.

The Potus CANNOT order wiretaps. That is illegal and was put into effect just so a situation like this never happens. But Drumpf doesn't care for the truth or reality. He depends on fake news.

All wingnuts and everyone esle needs to get on board and petition to have this crazy bastard institutionalized before he does real harm to our world with nukes.

I've read it speculated that Trump has untreated syphilis, but this is the first I've heard about gonorrhea...

dinthebeast- the reference to gonorrhea was in this comedy routine by Cheech and Chong- http://www.lyricsfreak.com/c/cheech+chong/peter+rooter_20833011.html

These 8 track tapes were all the rage back in the sixties and seventies.

Hmmm. Maybe I missed it....I don't see your answer, or any other black bastard's answer.

Why. JUST TELL ME WHY?????

If I missed it, please forgive me.

Commandeered Queenie- would you be speaking of drug testing "welfare queens" like the koch bros, all korporate amerika and elected officials?

I'm all for that. But drug testing costs more to administer than the states would save by kicking violators off welfare. Unless the violators are korporate amerika and their ginormous subsidies.

Wingnuts would demand the ACLU protect them from illegal searches while they try to take away poor people's 4th amendment rights.

If Obama left a mess for Drumpf, Drumpf should be on his knees with Obama's little Barack safely ensconced between Drumpf's jaws. Drumpf sucks, but that is all he is good at.

Lt. Commander Johnson said...

Hey MiQueen,

if you receive ANY subsidy sponsored by the US Taxpayer...I'd be all-for the drug-testing.

You state:

"I'm all for that. But drug testing costs more to administer than the states would save by kicking violators off welfare."

I would certainly like to see you prove that assertion.

BTW....did you notice? No one even bothered to try and address my query as to how come gov't officials don't have to live by the same "health-care" rules that they impose upon us peasants?

Not to mention the same pension/retirement guidelines.

Hell, you serve in the Congress for TWO STINKING years, and you and your family is basically set for life.

I would have thought folks would have jumped-all over that.

Why do you suppose they didn't/don't??????

Anonymous said...

If the FBI had anything they would have used it during the election. Its all bullshit.

dinthebeast said...

"I would certainly like to see you prove that assertion."

Google it. Florida tried it and before they got killed in court over it, they found that it cost far more than it saved, and more importantly to them, since they were just trying to push a narrative that people who collect public assistance are morally bankrupt and not worth the assistance they receive, they found a lower instance of drug use among applicants than among the general population.

I'm so sick? I'm not the one carrying the clap, dude. And nice try with the "your football team" bullshit. I don't watch football, and don't give a rat's ass about it. If there's gonna be one less gang of millionaires asking for public money here that's fine by me.

https://thinkprogress.org/what-7-states-discovered-after-spending-more-than-1-million-drug-testing-welfare-recipients-c346e0b4305d#.xw7snejpn

Seven states hhave already failed this process. Tennessee tested 800 people and found 1 user before they quit. Florida's rate was 2.6%, but the state's rate of drug addiction is nearly 8%-meaning upper income people use drugs more than the poors.

mike from iowa said...

Congressvarmints get no pension if they serve only one term. Senators can get a small pension after one 6 year term. I believe congress has to serve at least 5 years to get any pension.

As of 2014 all politicians in DC were required to buy insurance through ACA exchanges like everyone else-with a few exceptions.

Keep up the good work, Doug in Oakland.
