Scandal overload.

TWEET METhe hits just keep coming with this president. So much so that the American press is having a hard time keeping up with the scandals dogging the White House.

I mean just when you think that one outrageous act can't get any worse, along comes another one that is equally appalling.

Where do I begin? Well, for starters, today the American president chose to side with a murderous dictatorial regime over his own intelligence community.  Mr. trump declared (even after un-controverted evidence to the contrary) that the Saudi Arabian government and their leaders should not be held accountable for chopping up an American journalist in their embassy. Why? Because they were just too important a partner on the world stage. (Translated: I can't afford to jeopardize my business interests with the Saudis.)

I have to give it to trump, though, at least he is consistent. His love for dictators and disdain for things  having to do with democracy has not changed since he took office.   

And then there is his daughter, Ivanka, who we learned today has been doing what her father wanted his 2016 opponent arrested for: using private e-mails to conduct government business. These people and their supporters are such word class hypocrites that it boggles the mind.

Now you will hear all of the excuses from the right, and the whataboutisms that they are so good at throwing out when they are caught in a lie or with their backs against the wall. 

"Early on and for a little period of time, Ivanka did some emails. They weren't classified like Hillary Clinton. They weren't deleted like Hillary Clinton," Trump told reporters.

"She wasn't doing anything to hide her emails... They are all in presidential records... There were no servers in the basement like Hillary Clinton had. You're talking about a whole different -- all fake news."

I hear ya, orange one. But the good news for the American people is this: Come January there are some new sheriffs in town, and they are going to want some answers.

And finally, what might be the biggest story today from this scandal plagued White House, is the one from the New York Times detailing how Mr. trump tried to order the justice department to prosecute James Comey and Hillary Clinton.  

This man really believes that the justice department is his own personal tool to go after his political enemies. Sorry orange one, that is not how it works in America, at least not yet. 

Fortunately for the country (and for him), he was talked out of it by White House lawyers who had to write a memo to him explaining why prosecuting political enemies is something that his buddy Putin would do, but is not cool here in America. (Not yet.) 

There is one person who might be interested in getting to the bottom of this article, and that is one Robert Mueller. (Remember, one of those same White House lawyers is now cooperating with him.) The man whose obstructing of justice case just got a whole lot stronger.    

"Lock them up".

Also possibly because Khashoggi wasn't actually an American journalist. I mean, he was a journalist working for an American company. But he was a Saudi citizen. And he wasn't someone of European descent, so Trump probably wouldn't consider him a "real American" even if he had, in fact, been an American citizen. You know how this racist crap works.

I'm guessing Trump easily rationalizes this away: "If the Ay-rabs wanna chop up another Ay-rab, who am I to get in the way? Besides, he worked for the Washington Post, and I hate those guys. FAKE NEWS!"

If you're one of those news organizations that treated Clinton's private emails like they were a national emergency, the solution isn't to treat Ivanka's private emails like they're also a national emergency—rather, it's to acknowledge that you kinda fucked up on Clinton."

None of these are real scandals.

A sitting President using American intelligence agencies to spy on the opposition presidential candidate based on unverified information purchased by his party's candidate from Russian intelligence operatives is the biggest scandal in American history.

We need to know what entanglements trump has with certain foreign powers. Most of the congressional investigations could have been prevented by him just following normal protocol but that would have been too easy. Release the tax returns as every candidate has done since 1976, remove yourself from your business dealings as every President has done and tell the truth. Welp, he didn't do any of those thus he is in the hot seat.

It’s pretty revealing that in the left’s diverse utopia — which only exists in movies & TV — that black and brown people act EXACTLY like white people. They’re engineers and doctors, they have intact families.

They don’t want actual minorities. They want colorful whites.

Good news: Thanks to another one of our wonderful federal judges, Female Genital Mutilation is legal again in the U.S.

Now all of those diverse friends from countries where they do this can openly have it done by doctors also imported from the same culture.

The truth is that the geopolitical balance in the world hangs on the petrol dollar. That is to say that oil prices and value are traded in American dollars. To keep this balance, certain foreign alliances are kept with unsavory countries to keep the status quo. Doesn't make it right or "fair" but it is the world we live in. Imagine OPEC deciding to peg the oil price and output to the Yuen or Euro.

Drumfuck says the Royal amily is our partner in fighting worlfd wide terror.

The Saudi Royals are Terror Inc. Wahabi Islam is the largest sponsor of worldwide terror and the Saudis are Wahabiists.

Now if Kashoggi was a white kristian corpse there would be a different reaction from Drumpf.

Here is another scandal- Drumpfuck's choice for AG has been bust revising his financial disclosure forms, like several other Drumpf picks he hasn't been open or honest about his income. Drumpfuck's SIL is still probably revising his.

Following this blog for years and during that time I have not seen a single comment of substance from you. At no point have you written anything constructive or added to the conversation. I wrote Field years ago that this blog needed to do away with anonymous comments and you continue to validate that point.

Three more scandals (election related) perpetrated by stoopid fucking wingnuts.

Florida’s chief law enforcement officer, Gov. Rick Scott, who is also the Republican nominee in the Senate recount, is in a position to allege crimes by election officials, attempt to seize voting machines and dispatch state troopers to try to intervene in the post-election dispute. But a similar spectacle has been unfolding for months next door in Georgia.

As chief of election administration in Georgia, Secretary of State Brian Kemp— who is also the Republican nominee for governor, in a vote also being contested — stalled more than 50,000 new voter registrations, supported closing more than 200 polling places in predominantly minority areas and purged 1 in 10 Georgia voters from the rolls. In Kansas, Secretary of State Kris Kobach — again, also the Republican nominee for governor — employed many of the same tactics as Kemp, and fell just short of being elected.

Add to your string of scandals that con man agent orange appointed his fellow flimflam man -- you know the one he doesn't know, never met -- Matthew Whitaker to be the top law enforcement officer in the country -- i.e. agent orange's very own personal shield from the law -- who, among his other totally disqualifications, was a paid member of an advisory board of a company before it was shut down by a federal judge earlier this year and fined almost $26 million for running an invention-promotion scam, and who is himself under investigation by the FBI which now, thanks to Whitaker's appointment as acting AG, is under his supervision. And the U.S. has the gall to accuse other countries of being corrupt!

"And the U.S. has the gall to accuse other countries of being corrupt!"

A sitting American President using a global network of intelligence agencies to spy on the opposition presidential candidate based on unverified information purchased by his party's candidate from Russian intelligence operatives is the biggest scandal in American history.

Then consider that the response to this scandal has been to accuse the candidate (who won anyway) that you did this to of the very crime perpetrated against him, and to hamstring his administration using a limitless special investigation for two years, and counting.

The people who run this country are as corrupt as it gets.

****************************
I find it difficult to see how any thinking person can be surprised at anything Trump says or does. He is following Hitler's play book closely with some minor alterations to fit the current situation.

And Trump has been doing this for several years beginning with his promotion of Birtherism. We must continue to check his constant power grabs until we can impeach him or vote him out of office in 2020. Otherwise, I fear there will be another civil war.

"The truth is that the geopolitical balance in the world hangs on the petrol dollar."

That hasn't been true for most of a decade, and will become less and less true as we transition away from fossil fuels, which we are already doing, even in places like China. The only ones interested in upholding that status quo are the goddamn fossil fuel industry, and they have known since the early eighties that their industry was not sustainable.

You're kinda dumb.

My humblest apologies to you, Doug, and all Percherons. No uglee white wingnut woman was hurt mating with a Percheron. First time Ican recall where a Percheron had to have a bridge plank strapped across its ass to keep it from falling in. The Percheron was blindfolded so he is completely innocent of beastiality charges.

What a bonehead. It sounds like this firm is well known as an oppo research firm. They are the guys you hire when you’re a politician and you want to trash your opponent.

And Facebook sends them to investigate their critics? What did they think would happen? Here’s an alternate idea: Stop being assholes, and maybe people won’t criticize you so much.

Putin wanted this so he could accuse his critics in foreign countries of phony, made-up crimes, and then use Interpol to extradite them (I.e., legally kidnap them) to Russia.

Welp, I guess he’ll have to continue sending assassins to murder his critics instead.
