The Russia investigation was a "hoax"?

Every Trump supporter I have seen or heard believes it was a "hoax". They laugh if you bring it up.

I cannot understand how they are able to overlook so many incidents of collusion and conspiracy?

Why were there so many secret meetings of Trump campaign officials with Russian government officials and why did they lie about it? General Flynn even lied to the FBI about it. He is facing possible jail time.

Why did Donald Trump tell the American people that he had no business interests with Russia as he was negotiating to build a Trump Tower in Moscow? Why did he refuse to show his tax returns or where he had his business interests? Should not every American be curious about that?

Why did Donald Trump go to such extremes to stop the Mueller investigation? Even going so far as to try and fire the Special Counsel. And demanding that his subordinates do the dirty work for him and lie about it? How could any rational person overlook such incriminating acts?

Why did Donald Trump pass Top Secret info about about an Israeli agent to Russian officials behind closed doors at the White House? Why did the American people have to find out about it from Russian sources? Why did Donald Trump insist on secret meetings with Putin with no notes or records?

Why did Donald Trump withdraw American troops from Syria and leave the Kurd allies exposed to Turkisk aggression, with no American support? And leave Syria completely in the hands of the Russians? After he bad-mouthed our NATO allies and has never had an unkind word for Vladimir Putin? All the while, saying that no one has been tougher on Russia than Donald Trump?

When he found out the name of the Defense official that authorized the sale of arms to Ukraine, to defend themselves from Russian aggression, he fired him. No one benefited but Russia.

And they laugh and parrot the charges of Donald Trump that it was all a "hoax". It is totally irrational.

After Bill Barr covered up the Mueller investigation, Trump supporters were convinced it was a "hoax", just as Trump said.

Yet, the facts and the evidence say otherwise.

Is DU out of step with the Democratic Party?

There are many DU'ers that are scared to death of Bernie Sanders. I am not one of them.

They seem to be out of step with the majority of young people in this country, and in Nevada, out of step with the Hispanic community. They went big for Bernie.

Obviously, Bernie has not won yet. But there is a trend showing. Much will depend on what happens in the next two weeks.

In my opinion, we should watch very closely the direction that the young voters are going. We should not permit ourselves to become so stuck in the past that we cannot change.

Just my opinion.

Bernie did very well in caucuses in 2016, also.

He has a very good ground game and is very well organized.

Unlike most of the other candidates, he goes in with a base of support. They turn out for a caucus.

But will they continue to turn out for the primary battles? South Carolina will be a real test for him next week.

There is no doubt but that he looks very strong right now, but we cannot forget that he did not do as well in Iowa as he may have expected. New Hampshire was a neighbor of his and he was expected to do well. Nevada is also a caucus state.

In my opinion, it is premature to think Bernie is going to continue at the rate he is going.

Just my opinion.

The candidate that wins the most delgates, even if a plurality, should be on the ticket.

That does not mean he/she should be at the top of the ticket.

Unless they win the number needed outright.

But, if there is a brokered convention, then the person that can negotiate a majority should be at the top of the ticket and the candidate with the initial plurality should be the VP nominee, in my opinion.

I think that is a fair and democratic way to handle it.

Who believes that Bloomberg will make his income taxes public?

Or will show where his money is scattered around the world?

Why should he?

Trump was able to get away with it.

It's a sad fact.

The more that you hate Trump, the more his supporters adore him. The more you point out the obvious lies he tells, the more they believe him. The more you criticize him, the more they defend him. The more you indict him for criminal acts, the more they are assured of his innocence.

It's a form of defense mechanisms. There is no way to win with such a strategy. It's part of human nature. It's like the little boy that cried, "Wolf!". After a while, he was not believed, even when there really was a wolf.

Why would Putin want to destroy America's democracy?

He was a KGB officer when the former Soviet Union collapsed. It was a desperately agonizing time for him. The Berlin Wall had come down. They had been defeated in Afghanistan. Later, they were embarrassed by the defeat of Saddam Hussein in the first Gulf War. He wanted revenge on the democracies around the world. But, they would fight them in a different way.

He would train people to master the technology for information and propaganda purposes, with the goal of weakening and dividing democracies in Europe and in America. He found an ally in Donald Trump, for whatever reason? Many have suspected some sort of kompromat.

Whatever, it seems to have worked beyond his wildest dreams. He is finally getting the revenge he wanted for the destruction of his old country, the USSR.

America is only his latest target. He could not have hoped for a softer, more naive democracy. He never dreamed that the Republican Party would help him in his goal.

A moment for Karma


At least five arrested at Trump protest in Colorado Springs.

I saw it reported on the local news. They were blocking the road to the Broadmoor Arena, in an upscale community to the south of Colorado Springs.

I cannot yet confirm but I believe it was said that it was pay-per-view? I did not see the event on FOX News or any other channel? That would be unusual, to say the least.

Pence came in earlier and took his caravan north for a few miles to visit the Focus on the Family facility.

It was another cult gathering.
