They Showed Their Ass

Closing Thought–11Jun19

You know how the people you know complain about the Congress and the way they are a do-nothing bunch…..well yesterday the GOP showed exactly why they are the laughing stock of the nation….

The House Judiciary Committee on Monday held the first of a series of hearings to examine the findings of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in order to determine if any further action, including an impeachment inquiry, is needed.

But the Republican members of the Judiciary Committee chose to spend their time during the hearing delivering petulant, conspiratorial rants instead of taking the hearing seriously or asking any questions that might be relevant to the facts of Mueller’s report.

Most of the Republicans’ childish comments were directed at John Dean, who served as White House counsel to former President Richard Nixon. Dean was brought into the hearing to put Trump’s alleged obstruction of justice into historical context, given that Dean pleaded guilty to helping Nixon obstruct justice during the Watergate investigation.

They tried to be cute with John Dean and Dean handed them their asses at every turn……

The GOP has proven to the clowns I have always said they were and I appreciate them making me a prophet……and yet as silly as they all were they will be re-elected at most turns….so maybe the clowns and buffoons are the voters after all.

All in all the GOP clowns gave me a good chuckle yesterday….for that I thank them …..especially this d/bag……Hawley of Missouri……

“Talk about living in the past,” he said. “The Democrats want to talk about Watergate? I mean this happened before I was born! This is a total waste of time. It’s a total waste of time.”

Missouri senator says it’s a waste of time to study history because it was a long time ago

This statement shows just how much damage the educational policies of the GOP have done to the schools and learning in this country…..it is all a joke.

This stunt, and it was a stunt, was more pathetic than the Dems with the KFC bucket when Barr decided not to honor a subpoena……games are all these spineless freaks know….it is never about the governing just how they look on CSPAN.

No Way For The “Best Of The Best” To Behave

A chopper crashes in NYC….that is a local story not a national one……and yet this, the story below, does not make the cut for the crap the MSM prefers to feed the public.

I have been writing about the death of a US Green Beret at the hands of two fellow Special Ops troopers…SEALs and Marine Raiders….if you care to get caught up….

https://lobotero.com/2018/11/13/more-on-the-death-in-mali/

https://lobotero.com/2018/11/27/death-in-mali-continued/

Recently the truth and nothing but the truth has come out in the trials of the murderers…..https://lobotero.com/2019/05/20/death-in-mali-is-justice-served/

I thought that it was pathetic that these elite soldiers were acting like spoiled Frat Rats…..and then the “rest of the story” was released……

The story of how an Army Green Beret staff sergeant died at the hands of four fellow special operators while on a tour in Bamako, Mali two years ago has evolved over time as leaked information and finally official charges and a guilty plea from one of the defendants laid out details of the man’s death.

One of the remaining three co-defendants, a Marine Raider, is set to plead guilty to charges connected to what lead to the strangulation death of Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar. But documents obtained by The Washington Post add new details that were not previously revealed.

The Post reported Wednesday that through a stipulation of facts document it obtained and verified that not only were the two Navy SEALs and two Marine Raiders going to assault, duct tape and video record the illegal hazing of Melgar, but that they also planned to have a Malian man who was present sexually assault the 34-year-old staff sergeant on video.

Seriously?  Is this what our “Best Of The Best” have come to?

The US needs to stop sweeping this stupidity under the rugs and come clean and take stock and clean up our Special Ops…..it seems to have become nothing more than spoiled brats having a “a little fun” and then not held responsible for the murder they committed.

Apparently the SEALs and Raiders do not think that they are held to the same as the rest of the military.

This is NOT the first story of the SEALs acting like prima donas….

https://lobotero.com/2014/11/10/squabbling-seals/

https://lobotero.com/2019/01/10/special-ops-under-scrutiny/  (Not to worry this has been settled where low ranking officers take the heat while the upper sits on their blotted asses and allows the Special Ops to deteriorate)…..

Time for some serious house cleaning and re-adjustment of the parameters of the Special Ops.

Plus the MSM tries to portray these people as some how “super human”…and will do what it takes to protect their reputations at all costs.

Biden Is Our Man!

Maybe Yours…Not Mine!

It appears for now the ex-VP is the leader and would be the nominee if the selection was today….I emphasize “For Now”!

He is being crowned lately on the evening news shows……..

This is the candidate that the media and the corporate world wants to be the person to take on Trump……just a Clinton-esque candidate and that was a loser in 2016 and they want to try yet again?

Why?

I mean he is so afraid of his fellow Dems that he did not show for the California meeting of the Dem Party……

Joe Biden’s glaring absence from the California Democratic Party convention has thrown a national spotlight on his eagerness to detour around the party’s progressive base. While dodging an overt clash for now, Biden is on a collision course with grassroots Democrats across the country who are learning more about his actual record and don’t like it.

Inside the statewide convention in San Francisco over the weekend, I spoke with hundreds of delegates about Biden while leafletting with information on his record. I was struck by the frequent intensity of distrust and even animosity; within seconds, after glancing at his name and photo at the top of the flyer, many delegates launched into some form of denunciation.

I often heard delegates bring up shameful milestones in Biden’s political history—especially his opposition to busing for school desegregation, treatment of Anita Hill in the Clarence Thomas hearings, leading role in passage of the 1994 crime bill, career-long services to corporate elites, and powerful support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

 
The big news on the Biden front was his views on the Hyde Amendment…..

Former vice president Joe Biden’s campaign for president confirmed Wednesday that the Delaware Democrat still supports the controversial, anti-choice Hyde Amendment, a revelation that generated intense criticism from rights groups. 

Biden’s support of the policy, 43 years after it was first signed into law, is a sign that the former vice president is out of step with his party. 

“This puts him at odds with his own party’s platform at this point,” New York Magazine writer Rebecca Traister tweeted, adding that Biden’s position puts him “also at odds with a morally coherent position.”

As soon as this came to light…Biden immediately changed his mind…….Joe Biden is no longer out of step with his Democratic rivals on the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funding for most abortions. Biden—whose campaign said as recently as Wednesday that he still supports the measure—announced Thursday that he now wants to end the amendment that he defended for decades, CNN reports. At a Democratic National Committee event in Atlanta Thursday night, Biden said he has had a change of heart because of the “extreme laws” Republicans in states like Georgia have brought in to limit women’s access to abortions. “If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s ZIP code,” he said.

How nice.  Was this an epiphany or just a campaign change for the election.  (Strike One)

Uncle Joe is on an apology tour since the Hyde thing……(Strike Two)

And then Biden released his plan for climate change…..and it sounds familiar……

Almost immediately after releasing a climate plan Tuesday that green groups slammed as woefully inadequate in part due to its embrace of industry-backed proposals such as “carbon capture,” presumptive 2020 Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden faced accusations of plagiarizing language from a number of sources, including a coalition consisting of major fossil fuel companies.

Josh Nelson, vice president of the progressive organization CREDO Mobile, was the first to highlight possible instances of plagiarism in Biden’s plan, noting on Twitter that the section “about carbon capture and sequestration includes language that is remarkably similar to items published previously by the Blue Green Alliance and the Carbon Capture Coalition”—two organizations backed by major fossil fuel companies and labor unions.

Joe!  Deja vu….all over again?  (Strike Three)

You Are Out! (in my book)

All this just illustrates what I have been saying since his name was thrown out there as a candidate…..he is a corporate stoolie!

Be Smart!

Deal Of The Century (Cond)

Since the early days of the Trump admin we have been promised the “deal of the century” to solve the conundrum of the Palestine/Israel situation……and we wait.

Since my interests are mostly in the Middle East I have been watching this situation with interest….as well as writing about it…….https://lobotero.com/2018/03/28/deal-of-the-century/

Well it is back….the media has been teasing the viewer with a promise of the release of the “Deal”…..

The master of this “solution” is Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner….and he has been in the Middle East meeting with the players of the saga as a precursor to the release of the “Deal of the Century”….at least that is what the admin and the media would have us believe.

According to reports the release is just a mere days away……and then the push back started….

President Donald Trump said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “may be right” in his raw assessment of the administration’s Middle East peace plan.

Speaking to reporters Sunday, Trump responded to a Washington Post report that Pompeo had described the administration’s plan for lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians arguably “unexecutable.” Pompeo also said that the plan — which is being devised by Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and former Trump lawyer Jason Greenblatt — “may be rejected” and that critics would call it “not particularly original,” the Post reported based on a recording of Pompeo’s comments.

Israel will be the only winner in any deal from these biased players…..all the major deal makers are Jewish…..

But my favorite is the d/bag we have at the State Dept, Pompeo……

Facing some pessimism on the Israel peace process since his own comments were published Sunday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is feverishly walking back what he said, to the point where he is attacking others who echoed his own comments.

That the US peace plan is going to be deliberately biased in favor of Israel is no secret, and has been one of the few things known about it since the White House confirmed this in early February, saying the US plan would be “proudly” in favor of Israel.

Last week, Pompeo spoke to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, telling them he didn’t have a lot of hope for the plan being accepted. When he called it “a deal that only the Israelis could love,” it wasn’t seen as a ground-breaking addition, more of an aside to his pessimism.

Does anyone think that anything fromDC these days will have anybody’s interests other than Israel?

As the US government has admitted, economic investment in Palestine will be ineffective without a political solution to the conflict. Given their lack of information on the US vision, Europeans whom the White House invites to the economic workshop are effectively being asked to invest in a project that has no clearly defined end goal. This initiative could even entrench a one-state reality of unequal rights for Palestinians under indefinite occupation, a situation that will increasingly resemble apartheid.

https://www.ecfr.eu/article/commentary_washington_illusory_plan_for_israel_palestine

Palestinians will reject this “Deal”….and as they should…..Israel has gotten all the favored status for too long….any debt the West owes Israel has long been paid in full….they need to step into the 21st century and act like a responsible civilized nation.

This is not a deal for the two people but rather a deal that would allow Israel to eradicate the Palestinian identity.

True That!

Enough Said!
