At any rate, this whole thing has been a tamsha.

Absence of evidence means it was conspiracy and speculation to begin with.

This tamasha will backfire on democrats in 2020.

Talking about issues, policies, witch hunt - almost nothing works against an incumbent. If the economy remains as it is and unemployment remains low, Trump will be on course for a land slide in 2020.

The only path to remove an incumbent is record turn out. Since presidency is ultimately decided in few swing states, even 1 or 2% boost in turn out of you own party voters will swing the election and defeat the incumbent.

The only person, and I am not saying this because I am a Bernie supporter, who has shown the ability to cause a massive turn out on election day is Bernie Sanders. Only Bernie rallies at the moment rival Trump rallies in terms of turn out, fervor, passion, and energy.

Should democrats nominate anyone other than Bernie, Trump is guaranteed until 2024.

When Trump screams FAKE NEWS and labels main stream media (MSM) as the enemy of people, MSM decries Trump as a threat to free speech and democracy, but they conveniently forget that it was the sold out MSM that enabled Trump in the first place.

After the spectacular failure of collusion conspiracy, who can blame Trump if he screams fake news and MSM as enemy of the people? Yes, these name callings are antithetical to how a president should behave in a democracy, but these name callings work because MSM has completely lost all credibility.

MSM was complicit in Iraq war. They always support war because they are partially funded by military industrial complex.

MSM regularly spread lies about US imperialism.

MSM showed Trump's empty podium for hours but refused to cover overflowing Bernie Sanders rallies in 2016.

MSM gave Trump 4 billion dollars worth free media because it was good for their ratings!

MSM peddled collusion theory, not because it was truth, but because it was good for ratings and profit.

However, when the unthinkable happened and TinyHands became the leader of free world, they feigned disbelief. Instead of holding Trump accountable on policy and organizing a meaningful resistance, they peddled a collusion conspiracy, which unsurprisingly collapsed on their face.

Instead of peddling Russiagate, a true media should have tried to find the root causes that caused millions of Americans to choose a joke of a character like Trump. They never tried to find out what truly went wrong with Hillary and the Democrats. MSM never asked the right questions.

Trump is no friend of people, but when he labels MSM as the enemy of people, it resonates, because MSM has been phony and fake for years. Simultaneously, these name-callings reiterate Trump's perpetual status as a victim. Trump wins both ways. SAD!

Your great president is coming to take whatever healthcare was left for the people. Because for Republicans, it is never enough, and it won't be enough until they handover each and everything of this earth to the corporations.

USA UCA = United Corporations of America
MAGA MCGA = Make Corporations Great Again

Small corporations are good. The bigger the worse. And the govt. is the biggest of them all, that isn't even accountable to facts but rather manipulating people's emotions.

The title of the following article describes the essence of dealing with Donald J. Trump.

Sell Your Soul For Donald Trump, and He'll Sell You Out

Even if you sell your soul to serve Trump, he won't hesitate for second to throw you under the bus. This is Trump in a nutshell.

Quote:
And I don’t think it’s unreasonable to wonder, as we contemplate the ongoing disgrace that awaits her in civilian life, what she got from the deal. We could debate how much of a soul she truly had left to sell when she became Trump’s Homeland Security czar—you don’t rise to that position with a clean conscience—but at the very least she was relatively anonymous in the big picture. So: For attaching her face and name to the horror of child separation, what’s the reward?

As usual with Trump, the answer is “nothing.” Worse than nothing, really. Like so many before her, she got kicked to the curb—she walked into her meeting with Trump on Sunday hoping for a “reasoned conversation,” per the Times, and with a plan to improve border security and her own relationship with the president. She walked out with nothing but a command: Resign. The reason? Ironically, because she wasn’t tough enough.
Quote:
There’s a moral tragedy here: On some level, Nielsen knew what she was about to do was wrong. And then she did it anyway, but the sacrifice she made—becoming a national villain—was only met with more demands, more stress, more pressure to become crueler and more draconian, right up until the day when he effectively fired her.
Quote:
Imagine forfeiting your identity, forever, for a boss like that! In the end, of course, he wouldn’t even let her break the news of her own departure—he had to tweet it himself.

I believe Russia collusion was hoax, but this cartoon was funny nonetheless:

If you have nothing better to do with your life, read redacted Mueller report here

So Mueller report is out - what does it mean for the Democrats?

Damned if you do, damned if you don't do.

If you say Trump colluded, impeach him in the house and make a statement. Democrats will not do it because they are cowards and fear it will be a huge loss of political capital.

But if you do not impeach him, even if the report accuses Trump of obstruction and collusion, it matters not. In absence of impeachment, Trump can non-stop trumpet TOTAL EXONERATION.

The summary of this report is fake resistance from the Democrats. Of course they like Trump policies because Dems are same as Republicans. To make a showdown of resistance, they cooked this collusion hoax, and now it has come back bite them and expose them as fake, not Trump.

Another Trump win

Mueller report -
1) Says Russians interfered
2) Russians interfered to favor Trump & Sanders
3) That Trump campaign didn't collude or conspired, or no such proof exists.
4) Obama & Trump knew about Russian interference and none took any step to stop it.
5) The Steele Dossier (sponsored by DNC and Clinton) is fake.
6) Trump tried to obstruct the investigation but his officials stopped those efforts.

At the end, my take on this is the entire Russian interference had a little impact on the US election.

I'm happy that this saga would probably end soon. Now please focus on what we can deliver for Anericans.

Trump was right - NO COLLUSION.

A great write up by Glen Greenwald - a must read:

Robert Mueller Did Not Merely Reject the Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theories. He Obliterated Them.

Quote:
With regard to Facebook ads and Twitter posts from the Russia-based Internet Research Agency, for example, Mueller could not have been more blunt: “The investigation did not identify evidence that any U.S. persons knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA’s interference operation” (emphasis added). Note that this exoneration includes not only Trump campaign officials but all Americans:

To get a further sense for how definitive the Report’s rejection is of the key elements of the alleged conspiracy theory, consider Mueller’s discussion of efforts by George Papadopoulos, Joseph Misfud and and “two Russian nationals” whereby they tried “to arrange a meeting between the Campaign and Russian officials” to talk about how the two sides could work together to disseminate information about Hillary Clinton. As Mueller puts it: “No meeting took place.”

Here is an article which points to the plausibility of PPT (pee pee tape)/golden shower tape being real

https://www.pastemagazine.com/articl...g-the-pee.html

Quote:
Now: Does the pee tape mean Trump engaged in a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government? Absolutely not. Is it important? Absolutely yes.

True, you’d think Mueller would have included this evidence in his report if he really had it. But again, the tapes wouldn’t be evidence of a criminal conspiracy to hack the election. Instead they’d be evidence that Russia has blackmail on Trump, which isn’t itself a crime, but indicates Trump poses a serious national security threat. That would fall under the counterintelligence component of the investigation, and the Mueller report—overwhelmingly focused on criminal charges—is conspicuously silent on the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Trump himself.

Money cannot buy class.

Quote:
“First of all, thank you for inviting us and we would like to present you with one of our jerseys,” said Baylor coach Kim Mulkey while presenting the top to Trump.

“I love those short sleeves,” said the president. Mulkey responded by saying that, “It may not be the right size but maybe Melania will wear it.”

Trump replied, “You know I love those short sleeves, such beautiful arms,” he said while stroking his own arm to demonstrate, to laughter as the president smiled and commented “great definition.”

Trump says strong, tough people cannot stop crying when they visit the oval office

Quote:
Trump has enjoyed showing off the Oval Office to guests, and he told the players that he has had “strong, tough people start crying” when they enter the hallowed space.

“Was that Hillary?” Gohmert interjected, referring to Hillary Clinton, Trump’s Democratic rival in the 2016 election.
