Possible pay-to-play scheme for ambassador role in Trump administration uncovered by CBS News

Westlake Legal Group 5nWZsgO65tTjnkmU6qyORMYrnd4iFP3Woit9dMEZvZU Possible pay-to-play scheme for ambassador role in Trump administration uncovered by CBS News r/politics

I would like to caution. Although it is completely obvious at this point the entire GOP is corrupt does not mean the Democratic Party is not. First let me state, vote blue no matter what. Second once we take back the government we need to still active to ensure that corruption measures are put in place to prevent any party or politician from doing any of this in the future. No one person should be able to shut down the voice of the people, no one should be able to do this much damage and instill this much control over the government for generations. We need to win the senate and then start by taking money of politics. At the same time ensuring that everyone can vote, is encouraged to vote, and that their vote counts. Real lasting change only comes after that. We can’t have Medicare for all, social welfare systems that work, fair chance for all without fixing these inherent problems first.

Remember vote blue, but don’t stop calling and emailing and protesting if we manage to get these crooks out of office. This is why impeachment is so important, it says “No we are not ok with this!” Even if the senate doesn’t vote, it just helps us fix the senate when we can get to that point to!

70% of Americans say Trump’s actions tied to Ukraine were wrong: Poll

Westlake Legal Group 49K-ADqR4G5l6uZJR002SUpKK749EkfgbU1287Su850 70% of Americans say Trump’s actions tied to Ukraine were wrong: Poll r/politics

By bribing the Ukraine president to talk of made up lies about Biden on TV, DT did two things wrong.
1)
Forcing a friendly country to deal with DT by throwing mud on the Dems, which would in the future harm USA-Ukraine relations when the Dems are in power. This is basic – the long term advantage of USA is to make other countries deal with the nation as a whole, not just with the party that has a majority at the moment.
2)
The purpose of the bribe was to influence the 2020 elections.
Corrupting the very mechanism that democracy uses to shed its skin is bad enough, involving a foreign country makes it even worse.

DT and GOP corrupted 2016 with Russia, but screwing 2020 is even worse because…..anyone know?…..
It’s because now he is doing it as a President.
This means that not only is the election being sabotaged (and note, involving a foreign country, which makes it far worse than Watergate), but whatever DT is now allowed to get away with becomes part of the legislation that defines what the POTUS, future presidents included, is allowed to get away with.

‘Case F**king Closed’: Stephen King Sums Up Impeachment Evidence Against Trump — Horror icon says there’s no mystery about what the president has done.

Westlake Legal Group QbIqUyrOYXgpB9UvwhytW2Emgp209sMSWdleuPdg-E8 ‘Case F**king Closed’: Stephen King Sums Up Impeachment Evidence Against Trump — Horror icon says there’s no mystery about what the president has done. r/politics

You are absolutely right. Barr even advocates that Article II of the constitution give Trump absolute powers and places him above the law. Fascists all line up behind him.

Thing is, every time Trump is not held accountable to the rules that governed every other president, such as his sexual degradation for instance, it emboldens him. There were no charges for the 10 counts of obstruction of justice for the Russian coordination of Trump’s campaign, although 6 of his cronies have been found guilty of various acts of Trump specific corruption.

If he faces no consequences this time, “Trump being (criminal) Trump” will continue to commit impeachable acts. “Believe Me!”

Mueller and Comey Failed Their Tests. She Passed Hers.—Marie Yovanovitch chose her country over what others might think of her.

Back up a bit.

That’s not exactly a lie or revisionist history.

As nauseating as it might be, voters in 2016 did indeed elect Trump in an atmosphere of so many allegations of Russian involvement, etc., that an objective outsider may indeed have concluded this meant a change in the desire of the public to support Russia. Remember, the attempted softening of the RNC platform with regards to Ukraine/Russia was well known before the election.

And in 2016, Republicans won the House as well. Though voters hadn’t yet heard the “Putin pays Trump and Rohrbacher” tape yet, polls showed that Republican sentiment towards Russia had changed signficantly. Russia’s active measures campaign worked very well on the Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents.

The 2016 popular vote and 2018 election would speak against this.

But this isn’t revisionist history so much as a different take on the facts.

No… the issue here isn’t that “lie”. The deceit is that if Trump wanted to change policy, he should have done it overtly in an above-board and transparent manner. He wasn’t doing that because he was absolutely steeped in clandestine corruption.

Biden says he won’t legalize marijuana because it may be a ‘gateway drug’

Westlake Legal Group mcAtMMAQKhbWqWe56mlXGg8E1x84dpdH-l0827vWAFE Biden says he won't legalize marijuana because it may be a 'gateway drug' r/politics

It’s absolutely hilarious that this is the type of attitude that makes it a gateway drug. Keep it illegal and people think its on par with heroin.

We’d genuinely be better off with all drugs being legalized and an education system that informs people to think critically.

If you want honest drug information, fuck DARE. Get on Erowid and read the amazing experiences, the horror stories, then come to your own conclusions for your own life.

Legalizing drugs won’t mean every 3rd grader runs and buys heroin. They’ll see it by that time already ruining lives, and if they’ve got any hope in a future, they’ll not see it matching up with their white picket fence dreams.

Along with meeting donation-based qualification criteria (165,000 unique donors and at least 600 from 20 individual states), candidates must also receive at least 3% in four party-approved polls released since September 13th or at least 5% in two early-state polls in order to qualify for the November stage. Ten candidates have made the cut.

The following candidates have met polling and fundraising criteria for the November Debate: Biden, Buttigieg, Harris, Klobuchar, Sanders, Warren, Booker, Gabbard, Steyer, and Yang.

The Suburban Backlash Against the GOP Is Growing

Westlake Legal Group 3Pq_HgVmXCOBV7oCsGctzvZfE7kuw0fs5p0sINnxGO8 The Suburban Backlash Against the GOP Is Growing r/politics

“In both message and agenda, Trump has reoriented the Republican Party toward the priorities and grievances of non-college-educated, evangelical, and nonurban white voters.”

Not just old men. There are young and old men and women.What defines them is that they’re educated about the world by evangelical preachers instead of secular teachers, that they live in the country so they think they’re rugged individualists, and they’re invested in the White victim mentality.

Notable about all these categories is they come with a persecution complex. Christians say they’re persecuted. Yokels say the city folk hate them (which, I mean…yeah), and white grievance culture is part of a larger grievance culture that feels like the traditional power structure has been flipped on its head and that’s bad.
