Coronavirus: Congressmen Quarantine, Trump Refuses to be Tested

President Donald Trump is not infected by coronavirus, and he doesn’t need to be tested either. That is the message from the president’s staff on Tuesday night. “The President has not received COVID-19 testing because he has neither had prolonged close contact with any known confirmed COVID-19 patients, nor does he have any symptoms,” said White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

US Presidential Election 2020 – Sanders, Bloomberg, Trump – Who Does Russia Prefer?

The 2020 US election campaign is gaining momentum.

On Thursday, the United States Senate passed a resolution which limits the powers of the White House to launch a military operation against Iran after weeks of war tensions between the two countries.

Democrats, acting as prosecutors in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, have asked Senators to do their duty and convict Donald Trump in a final attempt to remove him from office.

Lamar Alexander (R-TN), announced on Thursday that he will vote against the call of witnesses.

Valentine’s Day – The Impeachment Trial Begins – A Short Story by Leo Tolstoy

Valentine’s Day

February mean’s Valentine’s Day and thoughts of love. My first experience with Valentine’s Day was when I was six and in the first grade. I got a beautiful gold valentine from a boy in my class that I have never forgotten, although I have never seen him since elementary school. It made me realize how important are our early years in determining our feelings and our thoughts and ultimately our lives. I hope Valentine’s Day will be a special one for you. If you don’t have a special someone in your life than be sure to celebrate Valentine’s day by giving yourself a Valentine’s Day treat in honor of the universal power of love.

Question for Socialist Democrats: “Why Do You Want to Destroy Our Country?”

Since the earliest days of the Obama administration, the (left) Democrats have been moving to establish a Socialist Democracy in the United States. Let’s face it, Obama wore many hats.

Iran is a Socialist country and its powers-to-be are constantly and consistently oppressing its people. It’s easily seen by the number of protestors in the streets of Iran over the last few days that have been crying out for the removal of the Iranian leadership. Those people know that a Socialist country is not a good thing. It’s no secret that Obama paid Iran billions of dollars in bribe money. It could have been tracked to if it were electronically transferred to Iran. Cash only lets them spend it wherever and with whomever, and with no oversight or future explanation of what it was spent on. One thing is certain, they didn’t spend it on the people of Iran.

It’s another sign of the times we live in today here in the good ole USA; ready for war?

Democracy in the Crosshairs

I have been a witness to the democratic process for many, many years. I have participated in numerous elections that have brought to office Democrats and Republicans of various philosophies and styles, but I have never before been worried through all of these various changes that our democracy was in danger of not surviving.

A democracy is based on the rule of law and when there is an assault on our laws, that is an assault on our democracy. Because I am so concerned, I have been paying more attention to the political changes that are occurring not only in our country but also in the world. I have begun to realize that what is happening in our country is not an isolated event, but is also happening all over Europe.

Does Ukraine Have its Own Assange? Perhaps Russian Meddling?

On October 9, 2019, the Interfax-Ukraine conference center held a press conference for journalists. The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency is a Kiev-based Ukrainian news agency founded in 1992.

Opponents, Allies Harshly Criticize Trump’s Withdrawal from Syria

The US risks losing the support and trust of its allies.

US President Donald Trump is in the midst of a political storm and is risking an impeachment because, in a telephone interview, he allegedly called for— and perhaps even tried to pressure— the President of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son, but that has not caused Donald Trump to abandon the idea.

The Dark Ukrainian Maneuvers of Rudy Giuliani

Donald Trump places all his trust in his family. In to that narrow, intimate circle also enters Rudy Giuliani. He is the personal lawyer of the President of the United States, his main shield before the multitude of legal fronts that stalk him.
