Wednesday Political Roundup

Trump scared to death of Russia connection

Trump threatens Robert Mueller
Trump threatens Robert Mueller

The Washington Post is saying, “…that the Trump administration is seeking every recourse to undermine the investigation into Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.” T-rump has even warned Robert Mueller to stay away from his family’s finances in the investigation. Mueller then did exactly what he was told not to do while WP reports Trump is “building a case” to attempt to illustrate that Mueller has too many conflicts of interest to be in charge of the inquiry.  During the process, the Oval Office lunatic has been checking out how to pardon his family, even himself. Looks like guilt already established.

Why is Jeff Sessions still Attorney General?

To begin with, Jeff Sessions is a bigot, a confirmed racist certified in the state of Alabama, rejected when nominated by Ronald Reagan for a judgeship in 1986 “… based on his comments on race and his role in prosecuting a voter fraud case against black civil rights activists in Alabama.” Not fit for a federal judge but okay to be the U.S. Attorney General. Only a maniac like Trump could reason like this. Well, Sessions’ bigotry isn’t what’s in the news today, it’s his underhanded dealings with Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to Washington, when the AG was a top adviser to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. So, again, how is he still Attorney General?

Florida law still in the dark ages

George Zimmerman’s killing of Trayvon Martin, who was black, in 2012, by George Zimmerman, who remains free thanks to the stupid Florida law, “Stand Your Ground,” which allows an individual to protect him or herself if they feel threatened. There were no witnesses so Zimmerman got away scot-free. Just recently, five teens stood by watching, videotaping, and laughing while a 31-year-old black man drowned. After it was over they walked away and left him in the water until discovered five days later. The teens, ages 14 to 16, could not be prosecuted because Florida has no law preventing this kind of behavior. If I were a tourist, I would think twice before visiting Florida.

They own the government but still can’t get their act together

Six months after Donald Trump became president and sealed the partisan control of the country, the Republican Party is just as fucked up as it was before the 2016 election. You can thank T-rump’s lunacy in the Oval Office or Mitch McConnell’s lunacy over Obamacare, or maybe it’s just because the GOP is a bunch of lunatics in general. Any one of these is enough to examine the effectiveness of a Grand Old Party that is no longer grand. It’s a disaster, they know it but have no idea what to do about it. One Republican calls it “…a lot of tribes within one party, with many agendas, trying to do what they want to do.” Unfortunately, none of them know what they are doing.
