Dan Rather Just Figured Out A Way To Solve the Immigration Problem and Save $20 Billion Dollars

This is wonderful. This is Dan Rather using pure Trumpian logic. Let’s take it to its logical extreme shall we? You well recall Trump saying that if we didn’t do so much COVID-19 testing that we wouldn’t be finding cases, and so in Tulsa he shared that he wanted his “people [to] slow down the testing.” So the logic is no tests, no cases, no pandemic, right? Here’s how Dan Rather is applying this law of logic. Here’s an idea for the president. We can apparently solve the issue of undocumented immigrants by just not counting them? — Dan Rather (@DanRather) July 18, 2020 Isn’t this great? We’ll save $20 Billion Dollars, because that’s what ICE and CBP spend keeping track of things and enforcing laws. But we don’t have to spend a dime. We can solve the illegal immigration problem right now, tonight. We just stop counting. Voila. Zero illegal immigrants. And let’s do the same for COVID-19 as our stable genius *president* is begging us to do. And then we’ll have zero cases. BOTH problems will “just disappear one day, like magic.” I love it. I’m going to stop paying my bills and then I get to live for free. Why didn’t we listen to Donald Trump earlier? Denial is a wonderful thing. Cleopatra may have been queen, but Donald is King of Denial.

Dan Rather Speaks Of The ‘Rot of Complicity’ In Trump Administration

Journalist Dan Rather has been watching the entire Trump debacle unfold since day one and he sees the corruption for the wide-sweeping effort that it is. Donald Trump is not doing all these misdeeds on his own, he has lots of help. Bear in mind that Rather is a man who has been on the front lines of America’s most compelling stories, starting with the assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas and working through Vietnam and Watergate. Richard Nixon was also a man who despised the press and he particularly detested Rather, who was assigned to cover the White House. Rather has a sharp eye for the truth. In judging this era, Trump mustn't be the only subject of the sentence. All who abetted, normalized, & rationalized his actions share responsibility. The recent NOAA statement and the story of military flights to Scotland to benefit his property demonstrate the rot of complicity. — Dan Rather (@DanRather) September 7, 2019 As you are aware, the United States military has made unusual visits to Trump’s resort in Scotland, leading to speculation that government funds have been misappropriated for the purpose of propping up the failing property.  Politico: …the military has spent $11 million on fuel at the Prestwick Airport — the closest airport to Trump Turnberry — since October 2017, fuel that would be cheaper if purchased at a U.S. military base. The letter also cites a Guardian report that the airport provided cut-rate rooms and free rounds of golf at Turnberry for U.S. military members. Taken together, the incidents raise the possibility that the military has helped keep Trump’s Turnberry resort afloat — the property lost $4.5 million in 2017, but revenue went up $3 million in 2018. “The Defense Department has not produced a single document in this investigation,” said a senior Democratic aide on the oversight panel. “The committee will be forced to consider alternative steps if the Pentagon does not begin complying voluntarily in the coming days.” Trump didn’t get the GOP nomination out of the blue. They were fully aware of what an unqualified fool he was, the punchline to a joke and yet they chose to put him at the top of their ticket. They own this shitshow, lock stock and barrel. In just the past week, stories have broken about William Barr scheduling a holiday party at the Trump International and Mike Pence staying at a Trump property on the other side of Ireland, all for the purposes of enriching Trump. Donald Trump and the GOP are looting the public coffers. They all need to be held accountable. Dan Rather is right. Look at the big picture and get it in focus for what it truly is — which is a bloodless coup by the most corrupt political establishment in our nation’s history, namely this iteration of the GOP, under it’s true leader, which is Moscow Mitch McConnell, the king of complicity.

Isn’t It A Shame Trump Can’t Escape The Truth This Time: Woodward Instills ‘Fear’

Well, it looks like there’s no chance in hell that Trump can discredit Bob Woodward and his new book given the accuracy of his past reporting and his famous “fly on the wall” technique… Rick Wilson, a Republican political strategist, had this to say: When I was a young aide in the DOD, Bob Woodward was […]
