Response to two Union propaganda columns today.

Marilyn Nyborg, a democrat, wrote a pretty piece on May 10 here in the Union. Her headline “Bring the best minds to the table” sounded great. And she discussed how proud she is with the “Indivisible Women’s” organization. Now I must ask, if you really think that way, you know, claiming “living room conversations” are necessary to get along, then why does your political party lie about every little thing? Remember when you wanted to know how come the Tea Party was only made of Republicans? And it was shown that was untrue yet you claim it still today. How many Republicans are in your organization? My guess none or very few.

Hard to have a in depth conversation about anything when all the members are of one ilk. And why do you speak of this now? Oh, Trump won and we have a Republican Congress, that is why. But how come you don’t have the same energy and desire about California governance? Your party has a super majority here. Your party just voted a five billion dollar a year tax increase and raised the registration fees on every motor vehicle. Seems to me if you wanted to have a conversation you might discuss that. But you don’t. Therefore, you are stuck in your ideology and are simply trying to get Republicans to feel guilty for their beliefs. My goodness California has had a democrat Assembly most of my 66 years and only one, 1996, did the Republicans have a majority. And only by one. So how come you never speak up about that disparity?

The reason is because you want it all. Total power over all of us that disagree with your socialist theories. Looking at California and the country we see what you are really all about. In my view Trump is a breath of fresh air. He is not a politician and that threatens you. He is kind of a loose cannon in comparison to the politics of the left. Makes me happy. The reason there are democrats and Republicans (and many other fringe groups) is because like the old saying “birds of a feather flock together”. That is shown to us every day. That is why people of the same pollical bent join their party. Why people of the same racial makeup live in the same places. Why rich and poor have their own places. It is human nature. I am sorry to say, I have no faith the democrats here and across the country are sincere. They are simply trying to be relevant.

Also the same day, a column by a Benjamin Avansino discussed us having “empathy” for each other in politics. Well sure, but how far does that get a bill that needs fifty one votes to pass? The issue in politics is victory for your ideas and your side. We all listen to each other and we do exhibit empathy, but it still boils down to a majority. All else is fruitless. Look again at California. Does anyone think the democrats care a whit about the feelings of the Republicans? Hardly. They have a super majority and do not need to show any empathy and they don’t. So we get a true “one sided” result. Socialist/communist. And now they have a bill to allow the hiring of communists in our state government. Do you think the protests of the Republicans matter? Nope.

Politics has been said to be war without bloodshed. I think the reason we have parties in America is because the “world views” are so different. Republicans are for smaller government, lower taxes, accountable bureaucrats and individual freedom. The democrats are the opposite. How do you square those differing views? By a majority vote. So at least the country has a slim majority of my party while these people have a super majority here in the state. Empathy? No, victory. You can have cordial discussions and refrain from yelling and rioting to get a victory. Unfortunately, we see that missing with the democrats. I challenge you to produce one riot by Republicans. All are from the left and that makes their discussion about “empathy” a hoax and disingenuous.

America has always been divided politically. The Revolution saw only 25% of the country in war, the rest were on the fence and not involved. That is the deal, make war with words and gain majorities. No bloodshed. And that is why we are such a great country.

  2. Gasoline and Diesel prices are hovering around $2.79 each. March lows for diesel were $2.21 and $2.49 at the Arco station off Sierra College.
    What will they be after Brown's tax hike and what percentage will registration fees rise?
    I got a break from registration fees from $375 to $129 on my F250 King Ranch a couple of years ago by switching to DP (Handicapped) plates.

  3. It wasn’t so long ago that Republicans in Congress cared about how a president comported himself in office. They cared a lot! The president is, after all, commander in chief of the armed forces, steward of the most powerful nation on earth, role model for America’s children — and he should act at all times with the dignity his station demands. It’s not O.K. to behave in a manner that demeans the office and embarrasses the country. Shirt sleeves in the Oval Office? Disrespectful. Shoes on the Resolute desk? Even worse. Lying? Despicable, if not impeachable.

  4. Now seems like a good moment to update the standards. What do Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and other Republican leaders think a president may say or do and still deserve their enthusiastic support? We offer this handy reference list in hopes of protecting them from charges of hypocrisy in the future. They can consult it should they ever feel tempted to insist on different standards for another president. So, herewith, the Congressional Republican’s Guide to Presidential Behavior.

  6. • refuse to release tax returns

    • hide the White House visitors’ list from the public

    • vacation at one of your private residences nearly every weekend

    • hire relatives for key White House posts, and let them meet with foreign officials and engage in business at the same time





    • promote family businesses on federal government websites

    ReplyDelete
  7. • collude with members of Congress to try to shut down investigations of you and your associates





    • threaten military conflict with other nations in the middle of news interviews

  12. President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

    The information Trump relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

    The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said that Trump’s decision to do so risks cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency.

    “This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

  13. The revelation comes as Trump faces rising legal and political pressure on multiple Russia-related fronts. Last week, he fired FBI Director James B. Comey in the midst of a bureau investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Moscow. Trump’s subsequent admission that his decision was driven by “this Russia thing” was seen by critics as attempted obstruction of justice.

  14. One day after dismissing Comey, Trump welcomed Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak — a key figure in earlier Russia controversies — into the Oval Office. It was during that meeting, officials said, that Trump went off script and began describing details about an Islamic State terrorist threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft.



    For most anyone in government discussing such matters with an adversary would be illegal. As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law.

    “The president and the foreign minister reviewed common threats from terrorist organizations to include threats to aviation,” said H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, who participated in the meeting. “At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.”

    The CIA declined to comment and the National Security Agency did not respond to requests for comment.

  15. But officials expressed concern with Trump’s handling of sensitive information as well as his grasp of the potential consequences. Exposure of an intelligence stream that has provided critical insight into the Islamic State, they said, could hinder the United States’ and its allies’ ability to detect future threats.

    “It is all kind of shocking,” said a former senior U.S. official close to current administration officials. “Trump seems to be very reckless, and doesn’t grasp the gravity of the things he’s dealing with, especially when it comes to intelligence and national security. And it’s all clouded because of this problem he has with Russia.”

  16. In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” Trump said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.

    Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States only learned through the espionage capabilities of a key partner. He did not reveal the specific intelligence gathering method, but described how the Islamic State was pursuing elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could cause under varying circumstances. Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat.

  17. The Washington Post is withholding most plot details, including the name of the city, at the urging of officials who warned that revealing them would jeopardize important intelligence capabilities.

    “Everyone knows this stream is very sensitive and the idea of sharing it at this level of granularity with the Russians is troubling,” said a former senior U.S. counterterrorism official who also worked closely with members of the Trump national security team. He and others spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the subject.

    The identification of the location was seen as particularly problematic, officials said, because Russia could use that detail to help identify the U.S. ally or intelligence capability involved. Officials said that the capability could be useful for other purposes, possibly providing intelligence on Russia’s presence in Syria. Moscow and would be keenly interested in identifying that source and possibly disrupting it.

    Russia and the United States both regard the Islamic State as an enemy and share limited information about terrorist threats. But the two nations have competing agendas in Syria, where Moscow has deployed military assets and personnel to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

  18. “Russia could identify our sources or techniques,” the senior U.S. official said. A former intelligence official who handled high-level intelligence on Russia said that given the clues Trump provided, “I don’t think that it would be that hard [for Russian spy services] to figure this out.”

    At a more fundamental level, the information wasn’t the United States’ to provide to others. Under the rules of espionage, governments — and even individual agencies — are given significant control over whether and how the information they gather is disseminated even after it has been shared. Violating that practice undercuts trust considered essential to sharing secrets.

    The officials declined to identify the ally, but said it is one that has previously voiced frustration with Washington’s inability to safeguard sensitive information related to Iraq and Syria.
