The Republican Party can NEVER AGAIN claim to be the party of patriotism, national security, fiscal responsibility, family values, morality, or American leadership on the world stage. (1) Patriotism: @realDonaldTrump’s disgusting display of deference and subservience to @KremlinRussia_E Putin, combined with the myriad of @GOP senators prostrating themselves (on July 4th, no less) to Putin was a shameful display of treasonous behavior.

.@AshleyRParker. I disagree. There is no actual or perceived benefit in having #AxisSally @PressSec lie before reporters/tv audience. She lies nonstop and the majority of the @whca won’t push back. Even if they do, she doesn’t care. The lie gets broadcast. @KatyTurNBC (1) The WH cadre of liars main goal is to introduce the lie into the narrative, knowing full well the lie will be amplified by @foxnews and @WeAreSinclair. If no one confronts the liar @presssec in “real time”, the lie gets out. (2)

Seeing The @GOP @HouseGOP @SenateGOP @SenateMajLdr @SpeakerRyan let criminal @realDonaldTrump violate the rule of law and pardon friends without objection is the SAME THING as @NYPDCT handing #ISIL guns & ammo and letting them shoot up @TimesSquareNYC #IllegitimatePresident (1) One has to wonder why in the face of this obvious corruption of @realDonaldTrump and the open conspiracy with @KremlinRussia_E, the @GOP stays silent. Could this be the reason? dallasnews.com/opinion/commen… (2)

#FridayFeeling Another school shooting. Another round of “thoughts and prayers”. “Mental illness”. “Too soon to talk about gun control” “arm the teachers”. Next mass shooting. Rinse and repeat. Fuck this. I wrote this in 2015 facebook.com/walter.broadna…. Still applies. (1) But it won’t matter. The carnage will continue. @realDonaldTrump will offer some half-assed non empathetic statement written by one of his Alt-right staffers. @mike_pence will look “earnest” while lying. And the @NRA? gunrunner @OliverNorthNRA will call the victims terrorists

On Syria: If there were a serious effort from this administration to stop Assad, strict financial sanctions should be placed on him AND Putin. Shut their access to their finances worldwide. Anything outside of Syria/Russia should be seized. Ban their oil worldwide @AliVelshi Syria must be punished for gassing their population. But a telegraphed ignorant tweet from a man-baby blustering about missiles isn’t the answer. Coward #Chickenhawk @realDonaldTrump is making the situation worse.
