      Fake news? Naah, the whole "fake news" narrative is designed to detract from his own lies and fickleness. He really did say he wants to support us. Did anyone believe him..?

      If they go ahead with their plans as outlined in the leaked memo, it would be a huge, possibly impossible step backwards.

      One can only hope normal service will be resumed as soon as possible with someone who is not a lunatic being elected as president of the most powerful country on earth.

      This is soo scary,  Third genders have been accepted by many cultures in the past and after a period of imperialism the acceptance is coming back.  This does nothing more than demonise and overturn years of hard work to remove stigma and prejudice that trans people have had to suffer and live with.  I am glad I am on this side of the pond!

      Worrying.  I am so glad that I do not live in the land of the free and home of the brave.  But then America does not have the greatest human rights record.  I am surprised, since they still have the death penalty in some states, that we are still dealing with then.  Mind you, 11 surface fleets helps in that regard.

      the great thing beyond the Clown is truth, science, reason, reality, and many many people with hearts and common sense in the US. There are many already pivoting to counter the Clown - some 1600 scientists have signed on to talk about the absurdity of this, many organizations are looking to launch law suits, and of course many protests to keep our voices heard. His time in office is limited much like his mind and fortunately there are many ways to counter ignorance and stupidity. Love always wins.
      I am the girl I am regardless of the Clown.

      A lot of folks reacted over this.......Exactly what Mr. Dump wanted. Equality is not a presidential thing.  It's more of a common wealth sort of thing.  Mr. D doesn't know that yet, but he will........

      This is a message from a friend about what this mid term stuff means, along with some other stuff:

       

      Well, kinda sorta, as kids say ...
       
      There are two important points about the House of Representatives, one general and one specific. The general is that much of the day-to-day work of operating a country is done by the House committees. House of Representatives Committees If you scan the list, you'll see the actual "nuts-and-bolts", including those items the Republicans scream most about -- Homeland Security, Foreign Affairs, and Taxes (the oddly named "Ways and Means"). Also the Budget. Then ones they soft-pedal, like Education, the Judiciary, and especially Oversight and Government Reform (something the Republicans desperately want to avoid).
       
      So there's greater control of the purse strings, and which child gets their proper allowance, so to speak. Among the Republican strategies has been to quietly cut funding, disallow increases, etc. from programs like Veterans Affairs, divert the money elsewhere (like building bombers) and weep crocodile tears about how they tried to help our veterans but the mean old Democrats wouldn't let them. The playground analogy (surprisingly applicable with their party) is Tom hitting Charlie, then Tom grabs his cheek and yells to the teacher that Charlie hit him. If Charlie says "No, Tom hit me" Tom says "Only because you hit me first" (a lie). Of course, in a playground, other kids are around and could see Tom hit Charlie, and tell the teacher the truth. With the Republicans in control of all the committees (as they have been for years) it was hard to track where the money was being diverted, which programs were cut, and if Democrats on the committees cried foul, they were overruled. That changes now, and it can have tremendous positive changes for the country and world; fingers crossed.
       
      But the specific point is that the House of Representatives -- and only the House -- has the power to impeach. Not the Senate, and not the Department of Justice or Supreme Court, despite Trump's attempt to pack both with slavish followers. In fact, much of our Constitution is general and vague about what this means or how that word was supposed to be taken, but is remarkably detailed on this matter. There are only two instances of the phrase "sole power" in the entire document. The House "shall have the sole Power of Impeachment", and that "the Senate shall have the sole power to try all Impeachments".
       
      The average person thinks "impeachment" means "kicked out of office" but it's an indictment; only the Senate can convict (unlikely with a Republican majority -- and they hate and fear a Pence presidency, allegedly). However, it gelds the Presidential powers somewhat -- as if anything could with Trump -- but like any indictment, it opens up Trump to investigations that wouldn't be possible without a Bill of Impeachment. And it sends a clear signal to Americans and the world.
       
      People are saying "Now the House is going to demand his tax returns" but no doubt they were acquired by the Mueller investigation within its first month. A note about that, and I'll get off my soapbox: The Mueller team is comprised largely of seasoned veteran prosecutors and investigators who specialized in organized crime. We have the nicely named "RICO", the Racketeer Influenced and Criminal Organizations Act, largely responsible for taking down the Mafia, corrupt labor union bosses, and so on. The Mueller team is not political operatives, angling for jobs as lobbyists, as Congress largely does. So what do you do first when you go after the Mafia? You follow the money. 
       
      There's no doubt that the Mueller investigation will have (or already has) proof of criminal activities by Trump and his family. The big question is, what happens then? 
       
      And that's just about enough of that! 
       
      One final bit; overshadowed somewhat by the Democrats taking the House was the large number of women, minorities, and various sexual orientations elected at all levels, country-wide. We should be especially proud of that!

      That's a rumor started by the Democraps

      That is a made up story that Don Trump wants to eradicate LGBT people. So many in our community fall for this every time it's trotted out. Voting for the Dems just took away the tax break we got thanks to the Trump administration. The so called "leaders" of our community prefer to have Hillary Clinton which is a damned shame and would be worse president than Obumbles. Lack of patience is problematic as so many in our group want it now. Sad that they can't show some self restraint.

      There are many facets to this narcisists personality. As a sociopath, he cannot bring himsdelf to believe the truth but rather what passes through his head at the time, hence, made up stories and lies. It's about him satisfying his own self, no one others. Only he matters in his mind and all others should accept everything he says, regardless of his logic. Yes, he hates. He is a bigot, a liar, an opportunists, a racist, a white supremist. He will be removed when possible, and things will reverrt back to how it was prior to his becoming President. Any policy he has participated in is simply a renaming of an old policy with a few minor changes but mostly, nothing changed but the name he chose. He is incapable of creating any policy because his self interests get in the way. Be patient, he will soon disappear somewhere.
