I'm no fan or supporter of the President outside of the biblical mandate to honor my leaders.

He'll skate along and at least finish his term.

Whether that's good, bad, or something else I can't say. I honestly don't trust any of them. I am done with politics. I most likely will never vote again.
I'm not sure that the Clinton shenanigans are in any way similar in form or essence to what Trump has done.

It may depend on how quickly the investigation tracks along. Hopefully something happens before the summer. But, the clock is ticking on Trump, I think.

Bill Clinton was accused of sexual misconduct by several women. He lied about it under oath and was actually impeached.

Hillary was involved in criminal business activities and people ended up dead.


I'm not saying they are worse or that Trump is innocent. I'm just saying that I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it to end his presidency.

That's one reason the 2016 election was so disheartening. Either way we were getting a horrible person for President.

Also, (maybe slightly irrelevant and off-topic, but sort of related) I'm not sure why anyone cares that other countries may have had an influence in our election. We influence elections (among numerous other things i.e. war and propping up governments) in other nations.

I'm not sure we have a right to be angry as we are just as guilty. Well, I suppose except for the fact that we are America and the greatest country on earth and can do no wrong. //end sarcasm

Honestly, I'm just tired of the entire thing. I don't care if Trump colluded with the Russians. I don't care if Clinton would have colluded with the Russians. I'm not sure it was worth the expenditure that we have had to burden ourselves with to get very little return on that investment.

She and her husband were involved in a real estate scam called Whitewater. A longtime friend (and law partner) of theirs named Vince Foster ended up becoming Deputy White House Counsel. One of his tasks was handling their financial matters (including documents related to Whitewater). He was found dead (ruled a suicide) in 1993. At the time he was involved in what was then called Travelgate.

I would suggest that her actions as Secretary of State are more egregious. I would also suggest that the Clinton Foundation is just as sketchy. Much has been written about both.


I do want to reiterate...I am not fan or supporter of Donald Trump. I'm not defending him or saying that he hasn't done shady things. I'm just suggesting that in the end it won't matter. The fact that Hillary is so corrupt directly contributed to Trump being elected. I honestly believe Bernie Sanders would have won.

We don't live in the same world where Watergate took down Nixon. Compared to what many of today's politicians do, that was nothing. However, it happened at a time when people actually trusted their leaders. I don't know anyone who trusts politicians these days.

I heard one comedian put it this way, "People hated Hillary so much that they voted for someone they hated more."

Joe Rogan (even though I don't agree with him on a LOT of stuff) tackles some interesting stuff.

****WARNING****

This is NOT SAFE FOR WORK!

This makes me sad.

I am afraid for the future of our country. Mostly because of the erosion of faith in our processes and our institutions.

I've been afraid for the future for quite some time. I firmly believe we will be destroyed from the inside instead of someone attacking us from outside.

As weird as this may sound...it is almost exciting knowing that we are watching the death of America as we know it.

Why do we assume this is necessarily bad? As a Christian I am supposed to be a citizen of another kingdom so the demise of this particular earthly one won't affect me eternally.

And here's the kicker: No matter what the House decides to do, the Senate will not impeach (I believe).

Probably true.

But, maybe the process of impeachment is more important than what the Senate may decide to do.

For instance, presenting the facts in a clear manner for the citizens of the US to see

The transcript is available.

Spoiler alert: it's nothing.

Huh? Its exceptionally damning. As is the whistleblower report, which notes that the transcript was moved to a separate system to keep it under wraps.

I'm guessing you havent been paying close attention to what is going on with this?
