Schumer tries to talk with Trump about serious issues, Trump changes the subject

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is back on speaking terms with President Donald Trump but said in an interview with BuzzFeed News published Saturday that the subject of their conversations are not always productive.

“When I talk to him, I try to talk to him about serious issues and he just changes the subject,” Schumer told the site. “I told him we want to work with him where we can work with him, we want to work with him on a big infrastructure bill — America needs to rebuild its infrastructure, haven’t gotten anywhere with him.

“He listens to what I have to say on the important subject of the day and then he talks about what he wants to talk about,” Schumer continued.

Schumer didn’t have many kind words for the President in the interview, saying that Trump’s comments that he thought the presidency would be easier should be a wake-up call.

“Good morning! Mr. President, you’re in the big leagues now,” he told BuzzFeed News. “Of course it’s going to take a lot of work, it’s probably the hardest job in the world.”

He also took jabs at the bill the Trumps are racking up by having First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron Trump stay in Trump Tower. Schumer told BuzzFeed that he thinks New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio should refuse to foot the bill, which the NYPD estimates to be $127,000 to $146,000 PER DAY.

“[Mayor Bill de Blasio] ought to tell the Congress if we don’t pay for it, New York City cops aren’t guarding it, and let the Feds put more people in,” Schumer said, according to BuzzFeed News. “That’s what I think he should do.”

Notice anything strange about this photo?

Look closely.

Read the caption.  Now read the caption again.

Why did the TV news channel that ran this photo feel it necessary to point out that the President is on the left??????  Were they concerned their audience would not know the difference???

Hackers were paid by Trump campaign, controlled by Putin

The December memo alleged that four Trump representatives travelled to Prague in August or September in 2016 for “secret discussions with Kremlin representatives and associated operators/hackers”, about how to pay hackers secretly for penetrating Democratic party computer systems and “contingency plans for covering up operations”.

Between March and September, the December memo alleges, the hackers used botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses, plant bugs and steal data online from Democratic party leadership. Two of the hackers had been “recruited under duress by the FSB” the memo said. The hackers were paid by the Trump organisation, but were under the control of Vladimir Putin’s presidential administration.

Check out this photo of two senators — Grassley (R, Iowa); Feinstein (D, California) — as they leave a briefing by the FBI on Russian interference in the US election.

Why would they be so somber?  Probably because the FBI told them on the Trump-Putin-hacker connection.





President Trump attacked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) from the stage of the NRA Leadership Forum on Thursday.

In his speech, Trump warned NRA members that a Warren presidency would be bad for Second Amendment rights.

“It could be Pocahontas,” Trump said. “Remember that.”

“And she is not big on the NRA, that I can tell you,” Trump continued.

“Pocahontas” is an insult Trump has repeatedly used before to refer to Warren’s claims her Native American heritage, which Trump has questioned.

Trump voter attacks innocent students because they are Democrats

A man armed with a machete and a bag full of knives seriously injured a Kentucky student Friday morning in a politically motivated attack at a campus coffee shop.

The assailant, whose name has not been released, brought weapons into Jazzman’s Cafe at Transylvania University in Lexington, where he made a bizarre proclamation and then asked other customers about their political affiliation, reported the Lexington Herald-Leader.

“The day of reckoning is here,” the man said, according to witnesses.

He then approached two women at the café.

“He asked the first girl if she was a Democrat or a Republican, she said Republican, (and) he said okay, then asked some other girl,” said witness Michael Soder. “By that time, some of my friends were running out and yelling for us to leave, and I tried to stay behind to see if — I mean I didn’t know what to do, I wanted to help, but I knew I should get out of there.”

Another witness shared a similar account.

“He asked somebody what their political affiliation was, they said ‘Republican,’ and the guy said, ‘You are safe,’ and then I realized what was going on and started getting people out,” said witness Tristan Reynolds.

The assailant, who police said was a former student, then pulled out a machete and attacked a woman in the café.

The student was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, and another person was treated at the scene.

The assailant was arrested, but police have released no additional information about the suspect.

He’s lucky he didn’t try that shit on me — I would have told him I’m a Democrat, waited for him to brandish his machete, then I would have shot him — several times — until he stopped moving.

Why is it when a black man or left leaning person does the slightest thing it is called terrorism or is screamed from the rooftops as being anti-American?  Then when some Trump-loving Goober, hopped up on Fox news, Alex Jones, and ‘Merica goes and kills a bunch of blacks, Muslims, or some of them damn libruls they say “Oh it’s an isolated act from a mentally ill person.” Lone wolf or not you froth up the populace through lies and bluster, this is what happens. I really wish the media would call a spade a spade and call it what it really is “A terrorist Hate act.”  Time for playing devils advocate is over. This is not a “Both Sides do it” bullshit. We need to stop the source of hate or we will end up with something ten times worse than ISIS inside our own borders from a bunch of people force-fed hate from the Republican party. The is not alt-right, this is Republican Astroturf, and we need to treat the Republican party as what it is. A Terrorist organization.

Now we know — “Repeal and Replace” was just a big GOP scam.

The Republican Party has pledged for seven years now that it would repeal the Affordable Care Act — but now that it’s in a position to do so, it suddenly seems to have gotten cold feet.

Talking with the Washington Examiner’s Byron York, one anonymous Republican lawmaker acknowledged that many Republicans in Congress don’t actually have any desire to fully repeal Obamacare, despite the fact that it has been a staple of the party’s platform for multiple election cycles.

“A pure repeal would get less than 200 votes,” the lawmaker admitted, even as he fumed that he would like to see the law entirely repealed. “It really is one of the biggest political shams in history — many of these members would not have been elected without promising repeal, and now they are wilting.”

Why are so many Republicans queasy about doing something they vowed to do for years? According to York, they believe that doing so would badly hurt people in their districts — and thus kill their hopes of getting reelected.

“The reason is fear,” York explains. “When the lawmaker said colleagues don’t want repeal “because of their district,” that was another way of saying the members are all representatives, and the voters they represent don’t want repeal.”
