The House Republicans' new investigation into Clinton, Comey & Lynch is the new Benghazi

Image
Anyone who has some experience within the political spectrum and has more than dipped their feet into a political campaign (grassroots or official) will know that not all political candidates' supporters are alike.

Trump supporters aren't all 'fat, toothless monsters driving around town in their trucks brandishing confederate flags and shooting their guns'.

Bernie supporters aren't all 'unemployed lazy social justice warriors indeterminately crashing on their friends' couches and branding someone who isn't aware of the latest politically correct term to describe African Americans a 'white supremacist'.'

Clinton supporters aren't all 'soppily dragging around the corpse of their politically dead candidate who has not been seen doing or saying anything of substance since November 9th'. They may have moved over to the barely awake, though 'filled to the brim' with esthetic supplements, Nancy Pelosi these days, but that's …

The Trump supporter outside the Senate in Washington DC

Image
My husband and I travelled to Washington DC for a couple of days to hang out and take part in some of the anti-healthcare bill protests (video here: https://www.facebook.com/patrizia.pelgrift3/videos/vb.637842834/10155668718532835/?type=3&theater)

On Wednesday afternoon, we stood by the media area off the stairs of the Senate when (by chance) Senator Bernie Sanders walked out and stopped to answer a few questions (video here: https://www.facebook.com/patrizia.pelgrift3/videos/vb.637842834/10155672269307835/?type=3&theater).

This man from Ohio standing close to us appeared to be excited to see Bernie and at first, I thought he might have been a supporter. After a chat with him, I realized that he could not be further on the political Richter scale: he had voted for Trump and was still a proud supporter of 45. He seemed to be in his late 50s / early 60s, classy - a small business owner (20 employees) who lived in Ohio.

After a long conversation about Trump (I have wanted to talk…

Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and John McCain - yes skin off their nose

Image
The last thing I noticed before I went to bed last night was that Senator Enzi refused to respond to Senator Warren's questions about the 'skinny repeal' of the healthcare bill. Rude.

Instead, he went on to talk a ton of bullshit just to run off the clock. Then, Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer asked for some extra time (10 mins) to respond. He was awarded five minutes by the Republican Whip. I fell asleep thinking the Republicans were a bunch of incorrigible dick heads. 
I had a bizarre dream, though. I visited the House of Representatives in Washington DC (something I did not find time to do while my husband and I actually were in Washington DC cos we focused on the Senate side of things attending various protests etc). It was late, around midnight and Paul Ryan was the only one left in there. He agreed to show me around (LOL) and he was very personable, eloquent and charming even. Towards the end of the tour, he mentioned that the 'skinny repeal' was unsuccessful.…

Voter Fraud Panel - Trump's manipulation knows no bounds

Trump launched an investigation into 'voter fraud' as soon as he could start wreaking havoc when in the White House.

Since he believes that over 5,000 illegal immigrants cast their votes for Hillary Clinton in November, he requested that all states hand over their voters' details.

However, more than 45 states refused to do it (as they probably realized that this could well be part of an intimidation tactic set up by the current administration that is very keen to ensure this 'president' gets re-elected in 2020).

Trump is currently appearing on television stating that the states that have refused to hand over the millions of voters' personal details are hiding something.

Yeah, they're trying to hide the voters' personal information from a 'president' and his administration that already made public the personal information of those private citizens who complained about his request.

Or, as the Washington Post put it, WHITE HOUSE RELEASES SENSITIVE P…

A quick guide to the Don Jr's email saga and the misunderstood links to Russian officials

Image
Here's why this Russiagate story has started to smelly fishy.

I have included links at the bottom of this page for those of you who would like to double check where I extrapolated some of the information. I have also included a link to the New York Times piece that chronicles the verbatim email exchange between Don Jr and promoter Rob Goldstone.

I don't profess to know everything about this case and I am not working on the independent investigation, but I have read several articles from disparate and reliable sources, and I watch a vast array of tv channels (including Fox News). The more I hear about the details linked to this Don Jr email story, the more it is all starting to smell like a walk across Soho on a hot summer day.

"Veselnitskaya said that nobody in the Russian government was involved with setting up the Trump meeting and she did not seek approval from Russian officials. She said she did not even know any significant figures in Russia."

So, nobody in the R…

Russiagate - is that still a thing?

Image
I am not a fan of President Trump. In fact, if I may be completely honest about this, he annoys the shit out of me whenever he is on television. Especially if he is speaking. I am not a fan of anything that comes out of his mouth. At the worst of times he emits either rude or inflammatory remarks. At the best of times, he sounds phony as fuck. Then, there's his sentence structure and the extremely limited vocabulary. He is the only person I know who overuses the adjective 'tremendous'. He is the complete opposite of inspirational. I really do not like anything about him that I see on television. However! I want to make sure that all this media frenzy about he and his campaign, current administration staff and so forth had or have nothing to do with Russia. That's all the media can talk about. Did they collude with the Russians? I don’t know. Nobody really knows for sure at this point. Even independent prosecutor, Mueller is still conducting that investigation and proba…
