Trump denies he fired Berman.
Who’s lying now? Barr, the media, or Trump?

Work NOW to build integrity of local politics. That comes FIRST. Build integrity local, regional, state.

Makes me wonder the precedents are for reinstatement

Well dear Kamala, if it wasn’t for the part YOUR PARTY has played screwing the citizens over for years maybe just maybe a monster like Trump would not have been elected. So go fuck yourself and your dammed Democrat Party who are just as corrupt in their own way that lead to Trump. You can go back to Nancy Pelosi who took impeachment off the table after Bush and all his war crimes to know who the Democrats are. And then she impeached Trump on the least offensive matter she could. You remind of the scene in Casablanca where the captain says he’s shocked to know that gambling was going on in the casino. The US political system is corrupt to its very core and therefore Trump is the perfect figure head in power now. And voting is not going to fix a damned thing going forward.

This guy is adept at digging his own grave (political that is); and if he catches Covid at his silly rally today it might be another type.

Remember what happened to Nixon after the “Saturday night massacre”. This is truly a Roy Cohn moment.

Yep they chose Trump over Bernie, little doubt about in my mind. Unfortunately, Kamala will probably be Biden’s choice for V.P.!

Oh really Kamala, have you forgotten LBJ, both Bushes who started wars , Clinton the rapist. Wars in the Middle East have bankrupted this country. This money could have been spent improving the lives of all Americans especially the poorest among us. You do not represent the poor. You are a fraud.

The US would not have elected Trump, who is indeed “the most corrupt POTUS” if it had not been for decades of the stagebeing set by Saint Ron’s racist inspired debt and deficit spree, Bush 41 (recall that Barr was his fixer), Clinton accelerating New Deal dismantling, Dubya attacking due process while launching eternal wars, and Obama’s corporate welfare program disguised as health care reform, and making everything occupy Wall Street (OWS) illegal post haste.

I wish that was true. He is 74 years old now and has been digging his grave for many years and has NEVER been held responsible in any meaningful way. If he had he would be in a jail cell for life. What blows me away is all the people he has screwed over with no repercussions. I am surprised he wasn’t given a cement overcoat a long time ago. He failed to pay back loans of millions of dollars and the banks just wrote them off. As much of a monster that he is, he has learned that he can literally get away with anything now. He seems to know how to play the system with his outright bullying tactics. It boggles my mind and breaks my heart. Yet I know he could only get away with it because the US is pretty much corrupt to the core.

My father fought through France, Germany, and Austria to wait at the Elbe River for the likes of Trump and Barr–I don’t think so.

If only the US could rid itself of the repugnant trump. By golly, if trump was gone then the US would be a cool country without any corruption. Why, when Obama was president, or Clinton, the US was a shining city on a hill.

Two heads, same hydra. The US of Abuse was formed as an oligarchy, power of the very few over the rest of us. Its wealth was exploited from chattel slavery, genocide, and the sweat and toil of millions of immigrants who bought into the lie of the American Dream.
Most corrupt? Depends on the point of view. Andy Jackson was no angel. He killed or forcibly moved indigenous peoples as he speculated on land. The worst land was sold to immigrants while rich slave owners such as himself got the lion’s share.
Then there were the wars of empire started by various Presidents. Cuba, the Philippines, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the various Pacific islands such as Guam and Samoa…
No Administration or Congress has clean hands. This is just the extinction phase. The well is dry. We The People are literally sick and tired. We know our children have no future unless the entire rotten system comes crashing down and we can base a society on true equality, true partnership, true justice…

The United States is so far gone, there is no longer the pretense of the ruling class following the rule of law. They have taken their masks off, so people can see what the truth has always been.

Trump is imploding. Yet Sleepy Joe could still blow it. Just ask Hillary.

Meanwhile, Trump’s OKC rally is maybe half full.
Coincidentally, so are the skulls of the Trump fans in attendance.

Every single vote for a republican candidate, and most of the democrats too, is a gob of spit in the eye of every American soldier who sacrificed their lives in WWII fighting against Fascism. To actually support the very same form of government that they died protecting us against is an affront to their efforts and their sacrifice and to everything good and sacred this country used to stand for. If they are going to institute fascism here they should at least be honest and do it under the waving swastika, not the stars and stripes.

It almost makes you want to cry how far we have come. Our history has blood stained all over it. I hope soon we can become a true nation that respects all mankind including indigenous, blacks, immigrants and abused citizens. Let’s say a prayer.
