Get Your Political Opinions Here 2.0

Editor's Note: This page is simply meant to collect links to political articles. Prior to Election Day 2016, each of the links on this page could have been a separate post, which would have artificially inflated the total post count on this blog. The following guiding principles have been established for this page:
  • no blind links will be included on this page - I will use the title of the article so the decision can be made whether to click the link or not. If it looks interesting, click it.
  • no dates of publication will be included on this page and, thus, chronological order is not implied. 
  • hover over the link to identify the destination website prior to clicking it
  • there is no attempt whatsoever to have an equal number of "conservative" links and "liberal" links. While I often align myself with Conservative values, there are some issues where the Conservatives have it wrong.

  31. 2017_05_16_AM_0731

    It's really exhausting trying to keep up with all the political activity. With each new day, there is something BIG happening. I will do my best to keep up because it's an important time in our history.
  32. Case in point: the White House denies that Trump shared intelligence with the Russians, then Trump states it's okay he did:

    1. Trump defends sharing intelligence with Russian officials
    2. Donald Trump Says He Has The Right To Share Info With The Russians Who cares if the information is classified?
      Trump tweets seem to admit he revealed classified information to Russia, contradicting White House staff statements
      In a pair of tweets, President Trump tried to explain away the news that he had shared "code-word" information with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador at a White House meeting last week, a disclosure that intelligence officials warned could jeopardize a crucial intelligence source on the Islamic State. "As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining ... to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism."

The committee requested the documents as part of its investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. A separate investigation into the matter is being overseen by special counsel Robert Mueller, formerly the director of the FBI.
  35. There Has Been No Treason. There Has Been No Coup.
  36. The Border Patrol Murdered Anastasio. Justice Now Depends On Trump.

  37. Discussion for McConnell I Don't Know How We Get to 50 Senate Votes to Pass ACA Repeal article.
    • Sometimes, the comments about an article are more insightful than the actual article. It's interesting how the Republicans have bitched and moaned about ObamaCare for 8 years but now, with the majority in Congress, the leader, McConnell, says, "I don't know how we get to 50 Senate votes to pass the repeal of ObamaCare. It's really shocking to see the GOP not know what to do with their abilities. Reading the comments offers a lot of differing opinions about it.

  43. Campus Craziness
    • Speaking in Berlin a few days ago on his affinity for open borders, Obama threw out this stunning line:
      • “In the eyes of God, a child on the other side of the border is no less worthy of love…than my own child.”

June 2017

I really have not been able to keep up with updating this page. Today is Friday, June 9, 2017. Honestly, this page is not really interesting to me. Perhaps by the next time there is a presidential election it will be. In the meantime, here are 2 links I will leave as they seem like there will be a desire to remind myself about the current political situation in 2018.
  1. James Comey’s public testimony exonerates President Trump of obstruction of justice.
  2. Trump’s lawyer cites a questionable timeline in disputing Comey
