• Martha died from multiple myeloma, the cause of which is unknown. Risk factors include exposure to radiation and a variety of toxic chemicals.
It is a fact that she was abducted, assaulted, sedated, held against her will, and falsely diagnosed as schizophrenic and involuntarily committed.
As to the cause of her death, we may never know. If the Nixonites didn’t kill her it would be a surprise to most people.
• The people of the United States of America govern themselves. That is what the Founders intended. Their mechanism for ensuring this is the U.S. Constitution. The mechanism works.
Suggesting that the Founders were ignorant of factionalism [political parties] is the mark of ignorance or deliberate prevarication.
There are quite a few more than three political parties extant in American politics. The people are free to vote for anyone they chose, including those that are registered independent of party. We decide these things, not the government.
Is any of this gettin’ through to you, or do you just like to troll?
@Diamond Lil • So we gonna fall for the Republican’s “divide & conquer” propaganda again? Why do you think Stone, Assange & the Russians hacked the DNC?
Speaker Pelosi is every bit as progressive as Ms. Ocasio-Cortez. Families fuss with one another, political kindred souls do too. Our fight is with the Republicans — not each other. Or we can replay the 2016 election all over again. Chose wisely.
• Likewise here. Secular is cool, but so are Lloyd-Webber & Rice. We also put Father Jefferson’s bible out on the coffee table.
Mr. Netanyahu’s crimes are in plain sight for all Israelis [and the world] to see. Millions voted for him anyway.
Same thing in America.
When fascism was vanquished in the last century the world vowed Never Again — What the hell happened?
Nixon’s Barr, AG John Mitchell, enlisted former FBI agent Steve King to prevent his wife Martha from learning about Watergate or contacting reporters. While she was on a phone call with journalist Helen Thomas about Watergate, King pulled the phone cord from the wall. Mrs. Mitchell was held against her will in a California hotel room and forcefully sedated by a psychiatrist after a physical struggle with five men that left her needing stitches.
Nixon’s Huckabee-Sanders, in an effort to cover up & discredit her, told the press that she had a “drinking problem”.
Nixon told interviewer David Frost that Martha was a distraction to John Mitchell, and “If it hadn’t been for Martha Mitchell, there’d have been no Watergate, we had ourselves covered pretty well”
When asked to comment about a forthcoming article that reported that he controlled a political slush fund used for gathering intelligence on the Democrats, Nixon’s Barr famously uttered a threat to reporter Carl Bernstein: “Katie Graham [publisher of the Washington Post] is gonna get her tit caught in a big fat wringer if that’s published.”
Nixon’s Barr, AG Mitchell, was tried & found guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and perjury and sentenced to two and a half to eight years in prison for his role in the Watergate scandal and cover-up.
Nixon, facing impeachment, resigned and later admitted to everything.
‘Not my Jesus’: Christian students protest Pence, alarming conservatives
The Christian college Taylor University Change.org petition asking the school to rescind the Pence invitation had garnered nearly 5,000 signatures by early Thursday, with copious commentary appended. Appeals to university leadership have been plastered across social media. Some are pledging to withhold donations.
“Not my Taylor. Not my Jesus," one signer wrote.
The Trump administration is all out of alternative facts and paranoid conspiracy theories. The facts are in — 10 more ongoing grand jury indictments unnamed per law — and even the most loyal Trump supporters are looking right at gross attempted obstruction of justice, lies, corruption and criminal practices worse than any political scandal in American history.
Mr. Barr sees it. I see it. You see it. Two Bulls sees it — and has illustrated the thing in plain sight. If America re=elects this abomination after seeing, we will be damned for all time.
• Sure, there’s lots to worry about. Ironically enough, our ubiquitous smartphones [which I lament as hindering our reasoning processes] also require / encourage people who formerly never read or wrote to constantly text.
Literate or not, well informed or not, people must govern themselves or there is no such thing as freedom — for good or ill it must come to pass or we are nothing but slaves.
Enacting a universal childcare and prekindergarten program. Every psychologist understands that the most formative years for a human being is from the ages 0-3. We have got to make sure every family in America has the opportunity to send their kids to a high quality childcare and pre-K program.
• There is a deal of factual truth in your commentary along with a deal of conjecture as well as some highly debatable personal opinion. I fully appreciate your take on things, allowing for the brevity necessary on this forum.
Although the intent of the Founders is not terribly complicated, it is a subject which deserves careful study and the reading of many, many days — if not months & years.
Overall point being, we can and should vote things the way we know to be true to our ideals and universal human rights. There really is no “they”, it’s all we — good, bad, rich, poor, left, right & center.
