We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Don't forget that when Strzok asked Deripaska if Manafort was colluding with Russian agents, Deripaska laughed in his face and said that that idea was preposterous.
Trump has increased sanctions against Russia, sold missile defense to Poland (after Obama scrapped it), approves sale of lethal aid to Ukraine (after Obama only sold blankets and MREs), "somehow" kills about 200 Russian soldiers in Syria, and is setting up the sale of LNG to Europa in competition with Russia but Putin is controlling Trump.
Don't forget that Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis is getting paid more than a million dollars a year in retainers from Dmytro Firtas, another Ukrainian-Russian oligarch with close ties to Vladimir Putin. Again, not a peep about this from the Fake News Media.
That comment is merely honest. It is this country's "Law Enforcement" and its "Legal" system - at ALL levels - which are at the very root of the fraud, corruption, treason, and sedition that is rampant in US government today.
If there were any "good cops", the sewer would have been cleaned out LONG ago.
Didn't say it wasn't honest. You are not a conservative, but a reactionary.
There is always some level of corruption. The U.S. has one of the lowest levels of corruption in world history, especially for such a diverse, sprawling country; but even then, money talks. The rich have inordinate advantages in society and the law. Democracy tends to mitigate this to some degree, but even that bulwark is breaking down as money and existing power structures have learned to co-opt populist sentiment. But burning it all down in frustration will almost certainly make things worse, further investing the entrenched powers who are best able to ride out the ensuing chaos.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
This flaunting of legal power has been going on AT LEAST since the founding of Hoover's FBI and Dulles' CIA, both untouchable while they trod every freedom granted by our U.S.Constitution.
What an opportunity to expose the evil they have spawned over the decades as citizens lose more and more rights and the rule of law ceases to exist. First, as long said, kill all the lawyers. Second. install term limits on Congress and age limits on the SCOTUS. Falling asleep while on duty is a no-no. Thirdly, remind citizens about the crime of sedition.
Meanwhile, I still want to know how the $21 trillion that "disappeared" from HUD and the DoD was spent. And what about an audit of the other departments plus the Federal Reserve.
The uniparty does not like the Donald but they can't corral him and that is costing them large "grifting" sums. With some patience and add a bit of luck I think he will corral them. Gitmo needs more "dwellers".
