About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Trump and the Trump Name..

..Donald Trump and his incompetence and total rudeness and insensitivity is ruining the name, "Trump."
...Of course, he doesn't know it, and he doesn't care, but that is the truth. When Trump is done, how many want to go to his hotels? Some, but who is going to book a convention there? Just the right wing companies. Who is going to want to stay there? What if things get worse, not better? We are talking about a name and a brand that is lead by "Donald Trump."
....Ok, one more idea for those who are reading this, and gotten this far: How many hotels and places in the U.S.A. have the name of Nixon? How many times have you seen Nixon's children interviewed? ..the end

12 Key words Trump said, "I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected."

Trump admits that there was Russian help with those words, and takes them back a very short time later. But he did tweet those 12 words. That is all there is. He cannot really take them back. He said it for all to see. Trump wrote it and tweeted it. There it is.

Question, Can the New York Attorney General,Letitia James, now indict Trump on charges?

We don't see indictment at the federal level, can New York then indict?

"If we had confidence the President did not commit a crime, we would have said so"

That one line says a lot more than most people realize. It is an amazing statement.

About the forums here at DU..just an observation...that is all..

50 minutes after Mueller's statement, no comment about it in .."Latest News Forum" Only comments that the statement will be made. So here is the point: for fifty minutes after the statement itself, all the discussion about it took place in ...General Discussion....and ..NOT in ...Latest Breaking News.

Nusrat Jahan Rafi: 16 charged in Bangladesh for burning girl alive

Warning: Very difficult to read, very awful human behavior.

If it wasn't at the BBC, I might not believe this.:

Sixteen people have been charged in Bangladesh over the shocking murder of a teenager who was burned to death after reporting sexual harassment.

Nusrat Jahan Rafi, 19, was doused with kerosene and set on fire on the roof of her Islamic school on 6 April, days after filing a complaint.

Headmaster Siraj Ud Doula, targeted in the complaint, is among those charged.

Police say he ordered her murder from prison when she refused to withdraw her accusations against him.

They described the preparations for the killing as being like a "military plan".

The case sparked mass protests in Bangladesh and shone a spotlight on the vulnerability of victims of sexual assault and harassment in the country.

A realization about a order I was told as a kid ..."Put it away".

...Over and over again. "Put it away", " Put it away", and more.."Put it away". "Don't leave your things lying around..put them away". What things? Everything. ...PUT THEM AWAY!!!!!! ...again and again..
Put it away. Where? Where it is supposed to be..the boses (my parents) would say. But my mom would not say why I had to put it away..but many, many years later, I now know why, I had to put it way in its correct place. (a place I could choose for it) And it took a very long time to figure this out.
...(two more sentences) If I put it away in a place that I could choose, then I wouldn't end up searching around for an hour looking for where it is...................
............................................................. You know, I did not like being told to "PUT IT AWAY"!!!but now, many years later, I will tell me, myself TO..."PUT IT AWAY, SO YOU DON'T SPEND AND HOUR SEARCHING FOR IT!!!"

Pelosi and impeachment, If you were her, when would you talk about this?

...Even if you were thinking about this, (from time to time,) when would you tell anyone what you were going to do? If I were Pelosi, I would think, when the time is right, and the conclusion is also clear. Even if it fails in the Senate, it must be totally clear that this is the correct thing to do and must be done. The time is not now.
...I think that explains why we have no idea of what Pelosi is thinking. This is not the time, and there might never be a correct time. If the time comes, it will be totally clear to everyone ( in my opinion.) And then, Pelosi will act.

This May Be Trump's Worst Cover-Up: CNN


By Dean Obeidallah
Updated 11:08 AM ET, Mon May 27, 2019 .
Warning: very sad, but totally true.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi made headlines -- and outraged Donald Trump -- this week by declaring that, "We believe that the President of The United States is engaged in a cover-up." In this case, Pelosi was speaking of Trump's stonewalling of requests by House Democrats for information, such as his tax returns.

But there's potentially an even more appalling cover-up by Trump -- or by some in his administration -- that concerns the death of a 10-year-old migrant girl just five weeks before the November 2018 midterm elections that the Trump administration didn't reveal at the time to the American public. In fact, we only learned about the death of 10-year-old Darlyn Cristabel Cordova-Valle, a migrant from El Salvador, this past week thanks to an investigation by CBS News. As CBS reported, and the Trump administration has now confirmed, this young girl died on September 29, 2018, of "a fever and respiratory distress" after complications from surgery that left her in a coma. A Health and Human Services spokesperson said that she had a history of congenital heart defects and was in a "medically fragile" state when she came into US custody.

Six migrant children have died in US custody, or soon after being released, since September 2018. In contrast, according to the Office of Refugee Resettlement that the Department of Homeland Security, Darlyn was the first migrant child to die in federal custody since 2010.

Her death poses a few vitally important questions: Has the Trump administration failed to inform us of other migrant children who have died in US custody? How do we prevent these deaths in the future? And why did Trump and his officials not reveal Darlyn's death to the American public for nearly eight months?

This last question is not just about politics but potentially about life and death as well. HHS has said that reporting requirements don't mandate they tell the media of such deaths, as reasoning for why it was not reported sooner. But there's no doubt that if we learned about Darlyn's death in September 2018, it would've made headlines as the first migrant child death in US custody in years. Would that media coverage have resulted in US Border Patrol, and others caring for these children, to change their procedures for the better, possibly saving the lives of the two young migrant children, 7-year-old Jakelin Caal and 8-year-old Felipe Gómez Alonzo, who died just two months later? We will never know that.

And we need to know if Darlyn's death was intentionally kept from us in September by Trump or his administration because they knew such news only five weeks before the midterm elections could have adversely impacted the GOP. Keep in mind Trump's closing sales pitch in the last months of the 2018 campaign was that the migrants posed a threat to America and only the GOP could keep us safe.

For example, Trump dubbed the people in the caravan of people approaching our southern border an "invasion" that included "some very bad thugs and gang members." And Trump's October 22, 2018 tweet shortly before the midterms said point blank to "blame the Democrats" for the caravans of migrants trying to enter the country "illegally," adding, "Remember the Midterms!"

Just imagine if in the closing weeks of the midterm election we learned about the death of a 10-year-old, innocent girl. It would've required Trump and his regime to answer questions about this child's death, likely undermining or at least distracting from Trump's mantra that migrants are a grave threat to our country. Could this have tipped some more House seats -- or even control of the Senate -- in the direction of the Democrats?

Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro was absolutely right when, upon hearing the news of Darlyn's death on Wednesday, he declared, "It's outrageous that another child has died in government custody and that the Trump administration didn't tell anybody." Castro, chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, added, "They covered up her death for eight months, even though we were actively asking the question about whether any child had died or been seriously injured."

Checks and Balances..It is that simple.

The great majority of Americans are in favor of checks and balances. This is taught in every high school in the United States.
... Not all, , but I think that 65 percent believe in this. If that 65 percent all vote in the next election, then Trump is out. It is that simple. Everyone who is honest sees who Trump is and always will be: a lying con artist who wants total power, needs to vote. If that 65 percent gets out and votes against this con artist and his party in the next election, then both will be done and gone. Trump forever gone, and the Trump party, gone for a very long time. We must vote and get rid of these evil assholes.
