Jared Kushner, a “man” that would never survive the real world.

Federal penitentiary is where this entire current administration belongs.

A decent legal team, armed with just a bit of documentation, could put together a credible prosecution for premeditated homicide on a massive scale. Based on this report, Jared is clearly a psychopath.

On the other hand, Nancy Pelosi and Joe DiMentio will look forward not backward.

Jared Kuschner’s callousness reminds me of that of Himmler. In an other world, he would make a fine SS/Whermacht officer . He is a ghoul, a deranged sadistic sociopath. I mean most politicians are but this fucking guy truly takes it to the next level. I really hope that if there ever is a tomorrow beyond Trump (i.e he is voted out, if that is ever gonna happen) someone indicts this piece of shit for crimes against humanity and especially the American people and whatever else he has done to hurt and destroy this nation. There is simply no accountability for the true criminals in this country. Our criminal justice system seems only designed for the average person and the poor to have the book thrown at them while those in power who commit crimes are promoted to top positions within the government and in fact rewarded for it.

Every single member of this foul mis-administration and every single collaborator must be brought to justice – one way or another – if we are ever to be a nation of laws.

Are you kidding? In the US nobody goes to jail if they have money. They might be fined but the result is usually that you get no jail time and you get to keep everything you obtained by fraud.

Another member of the trump regime for the fuckin gallows! Dancing at the end of the rope is where this snot-nose scum belongs and richly deserves! Too bad we live in a country that will imprison a poor man for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his desperate family but coddles such human garbage and killers as this skilnny little prick!

A new Nuremberg Trials for this entire regime on neofascists is sorely needed, but will never happen under a DP sellout co-conspirator!!

With the level of death they’ve wrought on us, I believe they deserve to be sent a bit further south.

Yep. See Manafort. He paid lawyers with the money he defrauded tax payers and others from for decades. Mnuchin is the head of the Treasury after Kamala Fucking Harris refused to go after him for mortgage fraud. He should be in jail not handed the keys to the treasury so he can give money to his ex Goldman Sachs buddies like the US treasury was his personal checking account.

See, we don’t send members of “The American Dream” squad to jail, you know business owners, powerful corporate men who make Microsoft, Apple, amazon, Tesla, Facebook, Google or politicians. That would openly shatter the myth of meritocracy and sober up everyone when they realize that those esteemed members of the elite that they have been holding in such high regard didn’t actually get where they got because of hard work and bootstraps or for being brilliant innovators and thinkers but because they cheated and defrauded their way into wealth and power. That is why the powerful, including Trump, will never see the inside of a jail cell. That is simply not the kind of message those in power want to see reverberate through society. We HAVE to believe in meritocracy and that some people deserve to be multi-billionaires for the system of exploitation to keep going.

Hang on. Where’s my guillotine? Resignation seems a gift for this kind of crime, by this hollowed out shell of a person.

I think confiscating all their assets to be repaid back to the American taxpayers and placing them in prison cells til death they feel the pain of those they’ve wronged would be a more appropriate punishment.

That’s what happens to a country that doesn’t filter out the psychopaths. They reach power, and organize the laws to benefit their kind of criminality.

Unfair elections lead to politicians who appreciate unfairness, which leads to more unfairness.

Trump finally seemed to change his tone about the coronavirus only after his senior advisors showed him evidence that cases of the disease were starting to proliferate in Republican states.

“In the past couple of weeks, senior advisers began presenting Trump with maps and data showing spikes in coronavirus cases among ‘our people’ in Republican states, a senior administration official said. They also shared projections predicting that virus surges could soon hit politically important states in the Midwest — including Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.” – Washington Post, 7/26/20

“McConnell’s ploy — and Trump’s Twitter ditto — offered an illustration of how much damage the Electoral College system continues to inflict on our politics.

If we had a one-person, one-vote national system for electing presidents, McConnell would have to worry about alienating voters in Democratic states, the same way that Gov. Greg Abbott has to worry about alienating voters in the blue counties of Texas.

Abbott lost Bexar County to Lupe Valdez in 2018, but he still captured more than 251,000 votes here. He doesn’t want to go out of his way to antagonize those voters, because they all count on the state vote total.

By contrast, the voters of New York and New Jersey — our two biggest Donor States, and the two states with the highest number of COVID-19 cases — are politically irrelevant to Trump (and, by extension, McConnell).

In 2016, Trump received more than 22 million votes in the states carried by Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. For all he cares, however, he might as well have gotten zero votes in those states, because that’s how many electoral votes he received.” – San Antonio Express News – 4/29/20

Trump and McConnell aren’t waging war on coronavirus, they’re waging war on Blue states where Trump can’t win Electoral College votes.

[Trump and McConnell are putting their boots to the neck of every state they deem ideologically unfit.]

“Why should the people and taxpayers of America be bailing out poorly run states (like Illinois, as example) and cities, in all cases Democrat run and managed.” – Trump, 4/27/20

Senators Claim Trump’s Coronavirus Response Favored Swing States

the administration “made decisions about distributing life-saving supplies based on electoral concerns of the President and his political allies”

a White House aide is quoted saying “the president knows Florida is so important for his reelection, so when DeSantis says that, it means a lot… He pays close attention to what Florida wants.” – Forbes, 4/23/20

Trump’s vindictiveness towards blue states is “only possible because Trump has fully internalized the logic of the Electoral College, which, through its winner-take-all bloc system, renders Trump’s margin in deep-blue states irrelevant. Nearly 4.5 million Californians and almost 3 million New Yorkers voted for Trump in 2016, but that number could collapse to zero without hurting Trump’s electoral prospects. Treating half of America like hostile, conquered territory has surprisingly little political downside for Trump.

The effects of this attitude have been of minor practical consequence until the coronavirus. Now, as states desperately scramble for protective gear and life-saving equipment, Trump is signaling to governors that their level of federal cooperation will depend on them providing the level of flattery he expects." – Jonathan Chait – 3/25/20

“Massachusetts received 17% of requested medical supplies from the Trump administration. Maine got 5%. Colorado only received 1 day’s worth. Meanwhile, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis got everything he requested and is getting an identical shipment next week.

Trump is distributing desperately needed resources according to their party and loyalty to the president”. – 3/29/20

“As states across the country have fought to get their hands on a piece of the governments strategic stockpile of masks, gloves and other supplies, Trump’s biases appear to have been reflected in the allocation of those goods.

The Washington Post [reported] Wednesday that the government’s stockpile was nearly depleted. [Democratic Governor]Whitmer and the state of Michigan had received just “a fraction” of what they’d requested, [the Post reported]

Florida, meanwhile — a must-win state for Trump in 2020 and home to a close [Republican] ally of his, Gov. Ron DeSantis — got everything it asked for and more.” – 4/2/20 - Talking Points Memo

Most Americans think it is wrong that the candidate with the most popular votes can lose. We don’t allow this in any other election in our representative republic.

Unfair elections lead to politicians who appreciate unfairness, which leads to more unfairness.

Now we need to support the “Yes On National Popular Vote” campaign in Colorado, and vote for and urge state legislators in states with the 74 more electoral votes needed, to enact the National Popular Vote bill for the 2024 election.

The bill is 73% of the way to guaranteeing the majority of Electoral College votes and the presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the country. The bill changes state winner-take-all laws (not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, but later enacted by 48 states), without changing anything in the Constitution, using the built-in method that the Constitution provides for states to make changes.

It requires enacting states with 270 electoral votes to award their electoral votes to the winner of the most national popular votes.

All voters would be valued equally in presidential elections, no matter where they live.

No more distorting, crude, and divisive red and blue state maps

No only we do not filter out, we encourage crooks to steal even more since they are considered by the bigger crooks to be “smarter” then average Joe. To these people it’s Darwinism all the way. If you are a consciousness, caring and clear minded trusting individual and buy their lies and false promises they consider you fair game because you were a fool to fall for their tricks. I suggest we all beware of this way of thinking because this is exactly their modus operandi. A thief albeit a big thief not a petty criminal is rewarded, promoted and encourage.
