What’s Senator Sanders Doing

What’s Senator Sanders Doing:

* Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) plans to introduce his “Medicare for allsingle-payer healthcare bill after Congress returns in September.

Speaking to constituents in Vermont Monday, Sanders admitted that the bill is unlikely to pass the Republican-controlled Congress or be signed by President Trump.

“If we pass this thing, it’s not going to be tomorrow, it would be the most significant step forward legislatively since I suspect the creation of Social Security in the 1930s. It’s a big deal,” he said, according to The Associated Press.

* Sen. Bernie Sanders will be in Indianapolis on Monday to attend a rally focused on jobs and the economy.

The rally begins at 4 p.m. at Monument Circle and is organized by Good Jobs Nation, an organization with a mission to “end the U.S. Government‘s role as America’s leading low-wage job creator.”

“What we’re doing is trying to get people together and get them to realize what is happening in this country with the loss of jobs,” Jones said. “No matter if it’s to Mexico or to China or to wherever, we are losing good-paying jobs, and some of these companies responsible are being rewarded with government contracts.

“What we want to do is hold some of the politicians accountable for some of the campaign promises made and bring attention to the fact that something needs to change.”

* Sen. Bernie Sanders, the former Democratic presidential candidate, will join U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr. for a town hall meeting in Detroit next week to discuss healthcare and jobs.

A single-payer health care system is likely to be on the agenda. It was at the core of the Vermont independent’s 2016 campaign, and Conyers, the Detroit Democrat, has introduced Medicare-for-all legislation every Congress since 2003.

 

Steve Bannon Is Not A White Nationalist

In a bizarre twist in the Steve Bannon White House puppet master narrative, Bannon called up the editor of the liberal magazine The American Prospect Tuesday afternoon and proceeded to give him what appears to be his unvarnished opinion on many things. On the other end of the line was Robert Kuttner, who then proceeded to write a story about his 25-minute conversation with one of the key, but elusive figures in the Trump White House. As Kuttner tells it, Bannon called him apparently following up on a column Kuttner had written on how China was profiting from the U.S. and North Korea’s nuclear squabbles.

President Trump’s 3rd Charlottesville Press Conference

The mainstream media lies. I see the propaganda so clearly on all cable channels, talking mostly about Fox, MSNBC, and CNN.

Now I’m not a Trump supporter and I think he is way over his head. I do believe he was sent to D.C. to shake up the Establishment, which is what I regard as the unelected power structure – the big donors. big corporations, big Oil, big Pharma,etc…I’m a total lefty, but that doesn’t mean I can’t spot propaganda on both sides of the media.

As far as I’m concerned, Trump denounced the KKK, white nationalists, and and the alt-right. It’s on tape. You can hear him say it.  But the media insists that he didn’t.

There is also the issue of violence. The Right did go to the trouble of gaining a permit to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee and from the footage I have witnessed, they were peaceful. You might not like what they stand for, but they have the right to express their opinion.

The trouble happened when they were supposed to have their rally the next day and the counter-protesters arrived, which included the anarchist group, Anti-fa, a no holds barred violent wing of the left. They won’t deny it. The press showed their work at Trump’s organization and at Berkeley where they shut down Milo Y’s, always considered hate speech.

Of course with this group on the left and some of the group on the right, who are prone to violence, of course chaos broke out. This is what Donald Trump meant by violence on both sides. The media is making it out to be that just the right side was violent. NO. That is not true.

But the bigger question is why was there such a paltry police presence? Where were the barricades? Why didn’t the police intervene in any of the fights? Because of this unpreparedness a girl was killed, and 19 people injured. Disgusting. There are theories as to why this happened. Some politically motivated, which makes it even more horrid.

But the press is wrong to focus only on one side. They are not even acknowledging the violence on the part of the left and they are unfairly painting a President as the voice of white nationalism. I see what they are trying to do. And even though Trump is a horrible President so far, it’s the powers to be, the puppeteers, that are trying to bring him down. He’s too much a threat to the status quo.

The only negative I heard in Trump’s press conference was when he said there were fine people on both sides. Well, I can’t see fine people in white supremacy, but I give him the benefit of the doubt as choosing the wrong words and trying to “act” like a politician at the same time.

That’s how I saw things. Maybe I’m imagining this, but I don’t think so.

Correct It!

Here’s something many of you may not know is going on that is very irresponsible. Journalists and reporters use Twitter alot to get information out to the public as quick as possible. Yesterday, Donald Trump tweeted out how he went to visit Alexandria gunshot victim, Congressman Scalise, in the hospital. Trump said Scalise was in rough condition and to pray for him. Well, reporter, Jim Acosta, sent out a tweet saying the President never visited Scalise at the hospita!. This was read by thousands and even Jake Tapper took Acosta’s word and reported the findings. Well, it turns out Jim Acosta was wrong, and therefore Jake Tapoer. But instead of tweeting out a retraction saying he was wrong, Mr. Acosta just deleted the tweet and called it a day. No retraction, yet tens of thousands of people thought Trump just lied. Luckily real reporters who still believe in fairness captured an image of the tweet in error and tried to spread the correct version of events around while also publicly shaming Acosta. The fair reporters weren’t conservatives, but progressives. They just believe in the integrity of their profession

This is just one example of what is happening with the news we intake, but it’s becoming a fairly big problem with those in corporate media trying to rush stories out. If they make a mistake, instead ot correcting it, they’re just deleting it.

Disappointed in Senator Al Franken

Disappointed in Senator Al Franken for cancelling events with Kathy Griffin and Bill Maher after their justifable mistakes. Yes, they both made mistakes and are facing the consequences, but I have a different code for when you are good friends. Franken says he is good friends with both and has talked to both since their faux pas. But to me, good friends don’t turn their backs on you when you’re down and out. Franken knows good and well, as a fellow conedian, what it’s like when you push the envelope too far. So Im just disappointed in him as far as the friend code of ethics. And that goes double for you, Anderson Cooper!

March Of Truth

I didn’t get to talk about the lame #MarchForTruth. I didn’t realize it was for Russisgate. Are you kidding me? A march for truth on a conspiracy thery. Is this where the Resistanve is going to put all it’s effort? With the establishment Democrats? How bout a march for truth for the men, women, and children being poisoned by lead pipes in Flint and other cities, how bout a march for truth for all the pipes that are leaking oil into our lakes and streams, how bout a march for truth for the homeless, the hungry, and downtrodden, how bout a march for truth against terrorism and our constant bombing of Muslim countries therefore making more terrorists, how bout a march for truth on income inequality, mass incarceration, fight for 15. And there’s much more, but you chose Russiagate. No wonder it wasn’t well attended. It’s hard to get worked up about that when there’s so many things fucking more important.

Executive Privilege

The mainstream media has gone on and on for weeks, even holding panels on it, that the President was going to use his Executive Privilege to block Comey from testifying to the Senate on certain things or not at all, really ginning up the drama. Well, I reported via the New York Times, but I knew anyway through instinct, that he was not going to invoke it. Still the MSM persisted, kind of like Clinton. Well today, the White House stated that Trump would not be invoking the privilege. Now, Im sure we will hear all the dastardly reasons why hes not blocking Comey. Predictable and. Sad

Shoddy Reporting

On the one hand it’s good to see the media doing some adversarial reporting again after being so dormant for a long time, but on the other hand I think it will be short-lived or until someone palatable is in the White House. Right now theyre experiencing a renaissance because they’re feeding a bloodthirsty public’s hatred for an unpopular President.

Nevermind that the majority of reporting is shoddy at best. What they’re relying on are anonymous sources within the Intelligence Community that can’t be verified or autgenticated, with an axe to grind against an adversarial Trumo. Then the media just riffs on the morsels its given basically turning the reporting info gossip, innuendo, and entertainment. And the gullible public just eats it up without questioning anything. It’s hard to tell what to believe

That’s why its such a good thing that we have a special counselor in Mueller whom for all intents and purposes is a primo guy. At least he will be able to dole out some answers.

I really don’t think they’ll find evidence of collusion. With the Intelligence agencies throwing out everything but the kitchen sink about Trumo, you’d think we’d have the information by now. I think we may find some criminality concerning Manafort and probably Pagd, but not much more. But as far as collusion, I just haven’t seen any evidence, only circumstantial and innuendo.

I guess you could make a case for impeachment with Trump on obstruction of justice but it would be hard to prove intent because I think he was going to get rid of Comey anyway.

However, it woukd be disturbing if that happened. For one, it gives too much power to the Intelligence Community because they could easily manufacture evidence. And they have a seamy past and are hard to trust. Thats whats been so funny to watch because the Left has always had an adversarial relationship with the CIA and FBI. Now to watch them treat these Agencies as heros and warriors is rich and a little much, but then this goes to show the deepness of hatred for this presidency. Another negative is that the people who voted Trump in would feel like their will had been thwarted and there’s no telling what that effect woukd have on the country.

But with Mueller at least we’re on good footing now.

Kathy Griffin Investigation

Of course she is being investigated! You post a piece of performance art (????) where you’re showing the president being decapitated, then expect the secret service to investigate you. Just cause you/re on the left doesn’t make you immune to what happens to those on the right who depict a president hanging from a noose. At least Ms. Griffin was spared a visit from the secret service unlike Ted Nugentt when he made his faux pas against Obama. And I’m sorry but the constant, relentless visceral hatred for this President set the stage for Ms.. Griffin to think she could get away with this kind of indulgent behavior. What’s particularly sad is that this routine hateful behavior by the left opened Ms. Griffin to the mistaken belief that she was safe to commit this piece of stupidity only to witness her political sister group, her friends, and her colleagues rise up, condemn her, then devour her whole taking her completely by surprise. Poor thing, I guess. She might as well have not even apologized. I wouldn’t have. Her idol, Joan Rivers, wouldn’t have, Joan also wouldn’t have given that embarrassing press conference blaming Donald Trump for her now present woes. What did he do except send off one his tweets defending his family having to see him die an Isis style death. I actually thought his response was rather muted considering his style. But he didn;t “break” her. Nor did his tamily who naturally stood up for their father. No, Joan Rivers, more than likely, would have come out bashing the political left, her friends, and her colleagues for turning their backs on her when she needed them most. Talk about a bunch of pussies. But really, when are celebrities going to learn the lesson that you can’t casually make fun of or try to make a statement about a president using violence or their death as the backdrop? This happens with every presidency and the celebrity is always left shellshocked that the secret service is knocking at their door. This is standard operating procedure for a sitting President. Oh, and Kathy, kudos from learning from your so–called role model Hillary Clinton by using every trick in the blame game book to try and get off the hook.

Quit using hack opinion pieces

Quit using hack opinion pieces from hack sites to find anything and everything wrong with this presidency, It;s bad enough as it is without seeing friend’s pages littered with what amounts to be gossip about politics. If a title of a story sounds like clickbait, skip over it until you find a site with a more sobering headline or else you’re just contributing to the junkpile of trash that passes for news today, Look again, for sobering headlines and different takes rather than the same ole same ole hit pieces that pass for journalism these days. Yes Trump = Bad, but so are most of the articles the majority of you are posting. You’re becoming as lame and predictable as mainstream media.
