The ultimate goal. (Frazier Crane)😊

Am I the only person salivating about the prospect of nailing Trump for money laundering?

Numerous books and articles that I’ve read over the years, including the Mueller report, have pointed in an obvious direction, with verifiable sources screaming “money laundering.”
From the beach estate in Florida, to condo sales in New York, laundering has been mentioned more often than “exceeding your expectations”. God, I hate that tag line.

I hope that the indictments handed down lead toward a laundering conviction, because in my mind, it’s a lock. He needs to be incarcerated, if, for no other reason, than to show the American electorate that justice can and will prevail.

Wow, thanks for the heart. I think of my self as more reserved than outspoken(?) Thank you

I just read a post about fact checking. Need some advice.

Is there a fact checking site that resolves questions quickly?
Is it necessary to be a member?
Which ones are the most reliable?

I’ve found that when I go to sites, I’m either unable to ask the question, or, there is no answer. How am I to be accurate if I pose the question?

My two cents worth of opinion.

If Republicans could not take action after children were separated from their parents at the border, and if Republicans could not take action after twenty three innocent grade schoolers were massacred, and if Republicans knowingly stood by a traitor of a President who subverted democracy, then don’t expect them to act any differently with regard to impeachment, resignation, the 25th. amendment, or anything relating to the betterment and advancement of civilized society.

Sadly, there is no reasoning with them or common ground at this point. They will continue to defend the worst President in American history and cause my blood pressure to rise.

In my opinion, any and all involved in the disgrace at the Capital need and deserve harsh punishment, whether it’s police, military, politicians who did not step up and condemn the atrocity, or plain old dumb ass Trump supporters who took joy in this farce. We can not let this go without repercussion. This is far too serious.

The fool still can't find it within himself to act like a man and do what's right.

His immense ego, well documented first hand by his PHD niece Mary, and nearly every sane observer on the planet, simply prevents him from acknowledging decency, common sense or morality. It simply doesn’t compute in his mind.

This clown show is continuing in an embarrassing display to the world. Never before, to the best of my knowledge, and hopefully never again, shall we get such an extremely poorly vetted candidate to represent America’s values to the free world. This administration, as we all know, was the equivalent of a political abortion on which America stands.

We need much better candidate vetting as we move on. Were Trump’s shady financial dealings known? Yes! Were has morals lower than a snakes’s ass? Yes! Were his corrupt ties to financial institutions and corrupt foreign governments known? Hell yes! Yet he was vetted to run for the highest office in the land.

If we are going to move forward as a free and democratic nation and prevent this type of insideous takeover from ever occurring again, vetting needs to be greatly improved, perhaps with mental, financial, criminal and moral aspects brought into play during the process.

Thank God we can breath again. I never thought the election would be this close. Let’s hope this Trump nightmare ends without too much more damage.

I could swear that I heard Trump mutter "good" after the discussion about caged children.

My jaw dropped. Why? I don’t know. After all, it’s Trump. He was turning away from the mic when he said “good.”

If I’m in err, I apologize to all.

If you think we just "might" be facing fascism, read this from The Nation.

We all fear the unknown. What’s worse, is when our fears become reality. No matter what, it’s doubtful that there will be a peaceful transition after the election. We need to be strong, and determined.

This is the most concise and un-nerving article that corroborates our worst fears. If necessary, we all will need to stand up for democracy.


Democracies survive when all major players respect the ground rules. They crumble when significant players start to flout those rules—and get away with it. Gerson has concluded that Trump is only too willing to circumvent Supreme Court decisions, is perfectly capable of issuing illegal orders to the military to attack domestic political opponents, and would likely show no compunction in ignoring an election result that doesn’t go his way. Each time he’s gotten away with crashing through a democratic constraint, his ambitions have escalated. During the impeachment hearings, Trump’s lawyers argued that as president, he was above and outside the law. Postimpeachment, he has sought to implement this theory of governance.

Nows not the time to feed Trump.

With about a hundred days to go before the election, now’s not the time to feed into Donald Trump’s plans of becoming the world’s worst dictator. He needs us to protest so he can send in his goons. He needs us to rile up his base. He needs us to be the cause of the unrest that he believes will necessitate his remaining in office. He’s playing us, and we’re falling for it.

We need to be resilient. We need to keep our anger in check until after the election, because by doing so, we will remove the paper from the fires that he’s trying to ignite.

Yes, there are many reasons to protest, but at this point in the game, I believe that the best damper on Trump is not falling for his lure - not giving him the civil unrest that Putin told him to unleash. Our community, community leaders, Democratic people of influence need to be on social media, television, and any open public forum to plead with our side to resist his trap until after the election.

If we can show restraint, with any kind of luck he will be removed from office, along with his sycophants and will be tried for all of the crimes and corruption they have inflicted on we, the people.

Repugnant Republicans are at it again in WI. Someone please pass the barf bag.

Here it is, another extortion play by state Republicans in WI. We seem to be getting slammed from every direction, and it’s nauseating.
