I would vote based on the quality of their character, their values and beliefs and not what shingle is on the door.

I would want someone who is good at critical thinking, and goes out of his/her way to see issues from both sides. Even if it doesn't change their position would enable better crafted laws to be enabled.

I wouldn't want someone that only listen to "shock personalities" on partisan networks.

Hard to see how he can come back from lying to Congress like he did when he said he never met with the Russians when in fact he met with the Russian Ambassador twice during the campaign and he's considered Russia's top spy in the US as well as being the Ambassador.

What bothers me about Russia with Trump & Co is the cloak and dagger bullshit.

If he had come out and said "Yeah, I get along with the Russians really well, including Putin. Maybe it's time we re-examine old beliefs about Russia much like we did about Japan after World War II. This idea that we have to be perpetual enemies is ridiculous. No, we're not going to agree on everything but it's time we got along and I intend to remain in close contact with our Russian allies throughout my administration", nobody would've given two shits.

The fact that they're all in touch with Russians but lying about it, hiding it, then when caught making semantic arguments about how their lies really didn't mean what they seemed, that's extremely concerning.

If we're dumb enough to actually have a 'democracy', then we deserve whatever we get- including foreign nations meddling in our elections by influencing our retards- but once high level foreign officials are in covert contact with high level American officials, that's really scary, especially considering that Trump has constructed a cabinet of people who one after the other are revealed to have been talking to the Russians, subsequent to denying it. Having a potential Russian stooge heading the DOJ could influence shit in weird ways. You wouldn't want Putin influencing an agency like that. They're as close as we have to total power and discretionary authority in this country.

what bothers me is the fact Democrats are shocked, offended and surprised Russia would try to hack into their server...of course they did, I certainly hope we have some eggheads in a room at the pentagon doing the same, hopefully many rooms full . If we don't there should be an investigation for gross negligence!!

The rest of it is just noise and more garbage from losing.. typical

Something stinks bout this story.

I have only heard a little, but from what I understand, Sessions said he never met with any Russians?

Then it's found he met with Russian Amb IN HIS OFFICE?

Then I heard he talked about the election?


First, this makes no sense. Even stupid people know that the official offices have records of every person who visits.

Second, How are we supposed to believe that someone knows what they talked about?

Yea, watched the video.

Franken asked if he would investigate anyone on Trump's campaign if they were in cahoots with the Russkies.


Session said.."Yea if there was anything there there I would investigate"


So now a sitting senator cannot speak to anyone from Russia because he MIGHT get picked to be on an upcoming cabinet and as we all know, Senators cannot be trusted to talk to Russians, because they will betray their country if they do.

If Sessions had a meeting with the Russian Ambassador to talk about something to do with him being on the Senate Armed Services Committee ( which he was a senior member of ), is he wrong that he denied knowing anyone who discussed the election with the Russian government?

It is much more reasonable that he had met with the Russian Amb about normal business, and therefore can honestly say he doesn't know anyone who talked about the election with the Russian Government.


The newest in a long line of "We got him" moments from the left that worked out so well for the last year....

Proof once again that the left learn nothing, know nothing and run on hate and fear, because they are bankrupt of any actual viable ideas.

You can;t blame the left.

They are soooo desperate to get Trump.

Because he's an evil man, literally Hitler without the good hair.

But what they don't get is that Trump is paying attention. Look at the 'leak' before the Joint Sessions speech that supposedly had Trump softening on immigration.

They got all excited, and then Trump let down the hammer on them.

I don't think any blog is better to read while watching the left vs Trump than Scott Adams, the Dilbert creator.

Really insightful in the methodology and Master Persuasion techniques used by team Trump. Here's a good one about the speech he just did at Congress

You know he's good because Twitter is shadow banning his posts.

I do love when the left throws out "Hitler" to anytone who is paying attention it is obvious. Democrats are the cloest thing to Nazi's we have seen, there is nothing the government should not be in charge of!!

It drives them insane that they are failing

And yet what about Trump's grasp of reality:
This morning, for example, Trump said he considers it “pathetic” that Senate Democrats “have still not approved my full Cabinet.”

That doesn’t make any sense. It’s not really up to Democrats to confirm his nominees – they’re in the minority; they can’t filibuster nominees; and they have limited control over the Senate’s calendar – and as of yesterday, literally all of Trump’s cabinet choices who are eligible for a vote have already been approved.

Glad your Cubs won last year. Have friends from Chicago, probably most loyal fans in America.

Can you believe it is Friday, normally a day to dump things you want to go under the radar. But today it has been like the old west shootout at the ok corral.
