Remember Armenia

Armenian Genocide

The Armenian genocide was the ruthless slaughter of millions of Armenians by the Turks of the Ottoman Empire. In 1915, during World War I, leaders of the Turkish government set in motion a plan to expel and massacre Armenians. By the early 1920s, when the massacres and deportations finally ended, between 600,000 and 1.5 million Armenians were dead, with many more forcibly removed from the country. Today, most historians call this event a genocide: a premeditated and systematic campaign to exterminate an entire people. However, the Turkish government still does not acknowledge the enormity or scope of these events.

The Turks are about to commit genocide. Again.

Trump is directly responsible.

The ragings of a malignant narcissist. That's what we're witnessing.

Everything he does is intended to inflict harm, to seek revenge on those who do not comply with his demands.

He is careening out of control, slashing and burning this country and the world to get what he wants.

His behavior will become increasingly worse the more he feels threatened by those who seek to hold him accountable.

We must remain steadfast in our opposition and not allow him to drag us into the pit with him.

This is a fight for our lives, a fight for survival against a megalomaniac.

Stay strong everyone.

I think Richard Ketay is really John Barron.

Trump lied to me about his wealth to get onto the Forbes 400. Here are the tapes.

Posing as ‘John Barron,’ he claimed he owned most of his father’s real estate empire.

In May 1984, an official from the Trump Organization called to tell me how rich Donald J. Trump was. I was reporting for the Forbes 400, the magazine’s annual ranking of America’s richest people, for the third year. In the previous edition, we’d valued Trump’s holdings at $200 million, only one-fifth of what he claimed to own in our interviews. This time, his aide urged me on the phone, I needed to understand just how loaded Trump really was.

The official was John Barron — a name we now know as an alter ego of Trump himself. When I recently rediscovered and listened, for first time since that year, to the tapes I made of this and other phone calls, I was amazed that I didn’t see through the ruse: Although Trump altered some cadences and affected a slightly stronger New York accent, it was clearly him. “Barron” told me that
Trump had taken possession of the business he ran with his father, Fred.

“Most of the assets have been consolidated to Mr. Trump,” he said. “You have down Fred Trump [as half owner] . . . but I think you can really use Donald Trump now.” Trump, through this sockpuppet, was telling me he owned “in excess of 90 percent” of his family’s business. With all the home runs Trump was hitting in real estate, Barron told me, he should be called a billionaire.

"He's like a bear with a sore ass!"

My elderly mother, just now, talking about the man squatting in the WH.

Everything he touches dies - yes I'm looking at you GOP.

Who knows the myriad of reasons GOPers have stood behind him, lying for him or remaining silent as he takes a wrecking ball to the Constitution and our societal norms.

It really doesn't matter.

What matters is that they've chosen to permanently weld their party to this man, a man of deviant character who is hell bent on dragging them down with him as he self-destructs.

There is no good outcome for the GOP. They chose him over this country and will inevitably crumble under the weight of their efforts to protect him. It's too late for them to escape their fate.

Dems and talking heads need to start asking GOP why they're so afraid of him.

Ask them if he's bullied them, or if he has dirt on them. Shame them for what they're doing, how they're betraying this country to protect such a loser.

They are frightened cowards. We are the brave ones, we stand up.

Fascism has kicked into overdrive.

Just read he'll bring lawsuits against those involved with the Mueller investigation and is imposing tariffs on the EU.

Threatened by impeachment, like a cornered animal, he's escalating and in destruction mode. Putin is egging him on.

His target? The Republic of the United States of America. Already battered, she is vulnerable right now.

We're all vulnerable too. So take good care of yourselves, breathe, and do something for your mental health every day.

We have a long, righteous fight ahead of us and need all hands on deck.

CNN reporting that some of MF45's aides are placating him, trying to calm him down.

Guess how?

By telling him that Nancy Pelosi is only humoring Democrats and won't actually hold an impeachment vote.

I have no idea how CNN got this information but if true, they're lying to him.

Bananas!

Impeachment is an administrative process, not a criminal trial.

Any talk about accusers and defendants, any language that relates to a criminal trial by the GOP are irrelevant to impeachment.

Just to be clear.

The Mueller Report was a Referral for Impeachment.

Mueller said as much in the report and his testimony, as he was not able to either charge or absolve MF45. Because of the DOJ policy that no sitting president can be indicted it was not a prosecutory case, there could be no binary choice. Impeachment is the only remedy.

I know many of us were disappointed (understatement) in the outcome of what was our only hope for a very long time. Mueller's halo was tarnished and some of us wondered if he was maybe failing in health, or maybe on MF45's side. We scratched our heads and tried to move on, as we endured the insufferable gloating of MF45.

Ever since the Ukraine scheme broke, I've been thinking a lot about Mueller and that 400 page report his investigation produced. A document that Congress and the public have still not yet seen unredacted. A document that is so detailed most Americans have no interest in attempting to read it (redacted). 400 pages of evidence.

I'm now getting a clearer picture of what Mueller did, despite the handicap he had, while still trying to do his duty to this country. We know that Rosenstein was not a friend. We know that Barr twisted the report to exonerate MF45. Mueller said nothing.

Perhaps he knew, as Nancy Pelosi did, that eventually, Trump would impeach himself. He certainly gave him the rope.

It's all going to come out, all of it.
