Also it looks like the Qatar money folks who wanted to go through Bannon had to find a new channel after he got fired. That's when they approached Kushner. Then the Steele dossier came out and they got scared so they backed out. Trump went all "TERRORISTS!" on them and the other Arabs blockaded them. Then they decided to accept the shakedown invest in Kushner's building and now Trump is all "Qatar is our buddy" again. Talk about blatant bribery.

I think that's almost the last shoe dropping. Apparently everything in the Steele dossier beside the pee party has been corroborated now. And the pee party is just in there for comic relief. rolleyes

Nobody is going to jail or prion. Fatasss will pardon everybody, including himself. The only way to get rid of Fatass is to 25th him or impeach with conviction.

Ghouliani said it himself: You can't indict a sitting President. shocked

We're stuck with this assclown and his corrupt, bribery, "Pay for Play" criminal ways. . mad

We are really reaching the point of complete authoritarianism, and the Border Patrol is being used as the SS. I am not exaggerating. Border Patrol agent questions two U.S. citizens for speaking Spanish in Montana gas station - USA Today. Read this, then think about this for a minute.

The Border Patrol is asserting that they have authority to detain anyone within 100 miles of a border, without evidence of entry, nor any suspicion thereof. Roughly 2/3 of the US population lives within 100 miles of the border. Look at the following map: . All of Florida, Maine, Vermont, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode Island - Washington D.C., for crying out loud. Think of a major city in the United States. New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland - Hell, AKRON, OHIO! Raleigh, North Carolina. Do you think the Citizens of these States and cities have any idea that the United States Border Patrol is asserting that it has the authority to arbitrarily set up checkpoints in New York City, Los Angeles or Chicago, or Mobile, Alabama?? Yet, they are.

Maybe we all need to carry our identity papers passports around at all times?

You know what's a huge problem? There was a poll and more than half of Republicans and about 20 percent of Democrats believe that millions of illegal votes were cast in 2016. A lot of them bring up the fact that their was an official investigation of "the problem", completely ignoring the other facts that the commission fell apart when the principle investigator had to testify in court that it was all BS.

It also completely ignores the way voting works: To vote you have to be on the voter rolls so the polling place knows you are legit in advance of you showing up. Anyone not on the list would have to be a great con artist to even get a provisional ballot, with lots of identity checking and id shown. Then the election workers would investigate to be sure you were entitled to that provisional ballot. And for what? What could you get for voting illegally? Jury duty!

It too ignores the fact that illegal aliens do their very best to hide from the government: They are scared rabbits! They would be insane to tell the government who they are and where they live just so they could vote. And what do they get out of it? They get picked up by ICE and deported!

With millions of people here, there are bound to be a few crazy or evil enough to do it. I'm sure there are people who eat their murder victims, too. But I bet there are more cannibals than there are illegal aliens who vote. All the cases I have heard of involve citizen probationers who thought their voting rights had been restored, or confused old people who voted by mail and then forgot and voted again at the polls. The number of people who intentionally voted twice you can count on one hand.

So why do so many people believe it? It's like finding out that millions of people believe in the Tooth Fairy. Has America gone collectively insane? Is this what happens when you have a Gaslighter-In-Chief in the White House?

I don't mean to brag, I don't mean to boast, but I'm like hot butter on breakfast toast. laugh

I bagged a HUGE Fortune 500 CEO conservative, ignorant racist and bigot. It's the real deal. I swear-to-God on my own life. Bow

His public persona is 100% opposite of his private persona.

I'm deciding now how I should proceed. 60 Minutes perhaps? Ronan Farrow? smile
