1. The Dems Are Worried About The Tweeter-In-Chief Pressing the Nuke Button?
There has been a hearing in Congress among certain lawmakers regarding not only a review of the presidential power of launching nukes but specifically the increasing doubt that President Trump is stable enough, or is not stable enough, to think first before pressing the button. His threat against North Korea of fire and brimstone “…of the likes the world has never seen.” has sent doubts of the President’s mental stability skyrocketing quicker than a ballistic missile. Personally I am a little confused with all this. If the President of the United States is supposed to be commander-in-chief of the armed forces, and is granted the responsibility and subsequent capability in launching our nuclear forces against an enemy based on a need, and that much of the implied and real power of the office of the president itself is determined by having the sole responsibility of annihilating the entire world on just his say so, then I fail to understand why there’s a debate regarding Trump’s mental ability with such power. The question is NOT whether he is stable or not to launch missiles… but rather if there is doubt in his ability to handle that responsibility responsibly.. then why is he even president??? Obviously we want and need our president to have that power.. and if there is a doubt that the guy can handle it we just don’t take that part away from him. Jeez, Louise, get a grip, Congress… and find the priority here.
2. Moore, Or Less
Actually I’d prefer less of Moore… Ray Moore and his antics. Why is some obscure and normally whacked right wing evangelical nut job from Alabama consuming so much of the news? Yeah, I know a lot of this is just because of the sexual component to all this; he liked teenage girls way back when he could still get an erection. The public is interested in this kind of stuff. But the story is the girls who were victims of his attempts… and now his career is likely going adios amigo. I don’t fault the victims of his assault for saying something while the public awareness is willing to listen. But what is truly beginning to worry me a bit is someone is going to “weaponize” the confessional and revealing assaults. By that I mean… as far as I know, no one anywhere.. all these alleged perpetrators, not a one has actually had a day in court. The court of public opinion has destroyed their careers. Some woman or man could easily pop out of nowhere, and either motivated by personal vindictiveness or financial gain (payoff) can make an untrue accusation on anyone, and that person is destroyed publically. While women (and men) who have been abused and/or assaulted sexually are having their day in the limelight (and rightly so, I might add) this is going to bounce back. When this happens the first time the women have lost their battle for attention.
3. If 1,700 Wasn’t Enough Would You Believe 16,000?
In 1992 1,700 scientists sent a warning letter to the world warning that unless humans change their environmental ways there will be climate change. For some idiotic reason the conservative right decided it was all some Chinese plot to make American business pay for environmental changes. In other words, those 1,700 scientists back in 1992 were all under the influence of China or being paid off by liberals. Well, now 16,000 scientists have written a letter, again warning the world that environmental changes must be implemented or the world will be in a world of hurt. Well… I believed them back when the 1,700 sent the letter. Even if you don fully buy into their science, just remember back in your general science class… it’s common sense… you spew pollutants into the air long enough bad things are going to happen. Forget coal already.
4. Trump Does It An Average Of 5.5 Times A Day
According to a Washington Post article… (HERE)
“For some reason, our year-long project analyzing, categorizing and tracking every false or misleading claim by President Trump had seemed like quite a burden in the past month. Well, the numbers are in and now we know why: In the past 35 days, Trump has averaged an astonishing nine claims a day.
The total now stands at 1,628 claims in 298 days, or an average of 5.5 claims a day. That puts the president on track to reach 1,999 claims by the end of his first year in office, though he obviously would easily exceed 2,000 if he maintained the pace of the past month.”
And there ya go. Conservatives are constantly lamenting the media doesn’t report on all the good Trump has done, preferring to dwell on the negative and blaming liberals for Trump not getting his agenda done. Well, his lies and deceit just illustrates his incompetence and the nation has adopted his performance as a new normal and no one is shocked anymore. Trump is being ignored. At a rate of 5.5 lies a day it’s no wonder.
