    A recent Harvard University graduate who is the first “Dreamer” to receive a Rhodes scholarship is attending … State of the Union address as a guest of a New York congresswoman. … The 22-year-old Queens resident told The Associated Press he might not be allowed back in the country if he attends the University of Oxford in England this fall. … Trump has rescinded overseas travel benefits for recipients as he seeks to end the Obama-era program. … https://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/rhodes-scholar-dreamer-attend-state-union-n965376?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma

    this is my chosen approach to politics and life in general:

    ;

    : => if I do not like someone’s message or ideas to get more mainstream exposure or popularity, then I have to stop distributing these offending messages.

    ;

    once I have put in my opinion of how I feel, then I take extra effort to ignore the scumbag ….

    ;

    I do this because I am mindful of those in marketing who say that bad publicity is still publicity.

    I do not know how others feel, but I find that I cannot put these crazy messages out there even though it is in an effort to ridicule the garbage;

    ;

    maybe my approach is wrong;

    but I wonder what would happen one day if traitor-in-chief put out a tweet and NO ONE responded to it???

    BEN CARSON + russian oligarch Konstantin Malofeev + Larry Jacob here in 2014 photo:

    WCF is described as “the main bridge between sanctioned Russian officials and American Christian fundamentalists.”
    Former WCF director Jacob describes Russia as the “hope for the world…the Russians might be the Christian saviors of the world.”
    Radical right wing “christian” Carson is openly on board.
    So No to little russian president who wants Carson on the Federal Reserve board.

    • 31 pkayden
      January 31, 2019 at 4:39 pm

      Dr. Carson has been such a huge disappointment to me on a personal level since I used to really admire him. His life story is quite inspirational and you would think someone who grew up in a broken home with an illiterate but ambitious mother would be much more caring. He has shattered the good image I had of him growing up. Sigh.

        January 31, 2019 at 5:01 pm

        Same here. When he first burst onto the political scene and I saw what he was like for real, I was so disappointed AND MAD I wanted to send him back his ‘Think Big’ and demand a refund. It was recommended to me (yeeeaaars ago) and after reading it I mistakenly gifted it to a couple of teenagers. God was I disgusted when I actually saw and heard him in action. Just the sight of him these days churns my stomach. One of those who forgot from whence he came! I briefly wonder how his mother would feel to see him in action now.

      wondering about the reports that Special Counsel Muller would need the official transcripts from the Intelligence Committee before he could charge those who lied to Congress with perjury.

      Given that the House gop just gave the names yesterday, could they have already turned the transcripts of the liars to Team Muller?

      reason I ask is that I so want that evil greedy Merchant of Death aka erik prince to be among those who are arrested …. of course among all the usual suspects in the trumpcrimefamily

        Just seeing this – first, I’m so glad you confirmed that the awful gop turned in the names of the committee members – wasn’t even caught up with that news! And, yes, I think within minutes of that, the transcripts would probably have been sent by courier to Mueller! Fingers crossed that erik prince is, indeed, among the soon-to-be-arrested! trump attracts these people like flies. Ugh.

        The thing about Cory Booker is that I fall in love with this guy when he’s at confirmation hearing and he’s demolishing who’s ever is in the hot seat. Because as a questioner Booker is tops, I’m sure he’s a good guy and all and he’s probably never stole a freight train, but I just don’t know. No doubt if he gets the nomination I’m voting for this guy with both hands, but we’ll see how it shakes out.

            He’s my Senator. I like him a lot. He’s been very good representing NJ. Met him at a couple of events when he was running for Senator and I saw him at an event in the summer for Senator Menendez’s reelection. I like Kamala Harris, too. It’s still very early. I will support whoever wins the primary.

          Don…Im with you on this. There is something overplayed at times that doesn’t “ring true” or authentic about him. I’m in the Kamala camp and having Booker thrown in can change the close relationship they have in the Senate. Maybe not.

          • 84 vcprezofan2
            February 1, 2019 at 1:52 pm

            “There is something overplayed at times that doesn’t “ring true” or authentic about him.”

            Carla, I came to this same conclusion during the Obama years when Booker was doing work for people on twitter and being sure to tout it, and when he supported (?) Romney re Bain, etc. etc. Aside from that, however, I just don’t see how it’s advantageous for so many Dems to be throwing their hats into the ring because it’s bound to cause more chaos that the country can afford. It seems to me if so many of them are to be focused on 2020 who will be seriously minding the store in 2019? Sigh. At this point I really don’t have a strong attachment to any of the candidates, I simply don’t want the chaos and division a large field will cause AND it’s sobering that Idiot#45 continues to steal from the shelves and dismantle the store while elected officials are reaching for the next political step.

    Sojourner Truth Speech of 1851 performed at Kansas State University’s 8th Diversity Summit April 1, 2011. Performed by Pat Theriaul

    interesting comment at the site

    Vivek Chaudhary
    2 years ago (edited)
    I think it’s important to note the likely reality that the white suffrage activist whose written account is the source transcript this famous speech did not accurately relay how Sojourner Truth spoke. I do like the mythology, but it’s also known Truth spoke Dutch as her first language, and was from New York. Quotations of her speech from earlier sources showed a formal style without slang terms like ain’t. I also have mixed feelings about the motivations for changing the words of an already eloquent woman, and turning them ‘folksy’ to emphasize some stereotype of black speech and identity.

    “A new arms race would weaken NATO, and help Putin strengthen Russia, which is the purpose of all of Trump’s foreign policy. A new arms race would add instability to the entire world and push humanity closer to a nuclear war. There is no good policy reason to trash nearly a half a century of nuclear agreements. Russia is violating the treaty, and instead of putting pressure on them, Trump is going to enable Putin to run wild.
    The Trump presidency is loaded with dangerous landmines, but one of the most dangerous for the planet is his desire for a new arms race that could destroy humanity.

      This Trevor Noah segment actually describes how I felt when I saw the news that Booker was declaring his intent to add to the WH-seeking mob. Honestly I don’t want to believe that the Democrats haven’t learned anything from the last election, but all these aspirants crowding up the pathway (with likely more to come) does nothing to eliminate my cynicism about politicians and their selfishness. Why do they all want to run in *this* election? Did President Obama’s victory make it seem easy to them? We are in such a mess right now with the Idiot#45 that I don’t get why they are all not firmly concentrated in doing all they can to minimize any further influence on his part. They shouldn’t have all this ‘free’ time to be mounting campaigns. IMO starting in this new Congress with their increased numbers all Democratic hands should be focused on #WeThePeople and our current problems, not so much on 2020. At the rate Idiot#45 is pulling things apart, every elected person should be trying to find legal/congressional ways to neuter him, instead of just telling us over and over that what he’s doing is wrong. Jesus, I’m so frustrated with the never-ending campaigning!
