Michael Moore: ‘Cease all congressional business’ until Trump’s ‘potentially traitorous actions’ probed

Published

on

Filmmaker Michael Moore urged his Facebook followers to demand an investigation into President Donald Trump’s “potentially traitorous” ties to Russia.

House Republicans have shown little interest in fully probing claims by intelligence agencies that the Kremlin attempted to influence the election in favor of Trump, although key Senate Republicans have called for an examination of former national security advisor Michael Flynn’s links to Russia.

Moore urged his fans to call on lawmakers — especially Democrats — to “cease all Congressional business” until a select committee was established to investigate the links between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence officials, and to call on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a special prosecutor.

“The Dems must bring a halt to anything happening on the floor of the Senate or House until this is done,” Moore said. “To carry on as if this potentially traitorous action never happened, to just go about ‘business as usual’ today, is an OBSCENITY.”

He said the claims about Russian meddling, if true, violated the most basic rights of Americans to a free, fair and incorruptible election.

“If we are not willing to fight for THIS, then WHO ARE WE?” Moore said. “If our Democratic representatives are too spineless to shut this charade down, theN they must be put on notice TODAY that we will primary them in 2018 with REAL progressive fighters who are true Democrats.”

Moore shared the number for the Capitol switchboard, which can be reached at either 202-225-3121 or 202-224-3121.

A historian points out a startling fact about the current racial divisions in the Trump era

Published

on

America is a deeply divided nation. That fact may be the only thing that Americans of all racial, ethnic, and political groups can agree about. A Washington Post-University of Maryland poll conducted in late 2017 indicated that 70 percent of the American people think the country is “as divided as during the Vietnam War.”

This division manifests itself in political ways exemplified by the partisan impeachment proceedings and gridlock. The Democratic-led House of Representatives passed 298 bills in 2019, yet the Republican-led Senate refused to consider hardly any of that legislation.

Nervous Democrats hoping the Obamas will save the party from Bernie Sanders

Published

Nervous Democrats are hoping former President Barack Obama will step in and rescue the party from Bernie Sanders.

A number of top Democrats, including former President Bill Clinton, fear the Vermont senator will be demolished if he wins the nomination and will hand President Donald Trump another four-year term, reported the New York Times.

“People are worried,” said former Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut, a former Democratic National Committee chairman who has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden. “How you can spend four or five months hoping you don’t have to put a bumper sticker from that guy on your car.”

Ron Paul unloads on Trump and accuses him of doing the ‘bidding’ of the ‘Deep State’

Published

on

For many years, former Rep. Ron Paul was the most prominent libertarian in Congress — often frustrating fellow Republicans by voting against their spending bills. Paul, now 84, left Congress in early January 2013 but still speaks out about politics. And in his February 24 column for the Ron Paul Institute’s website, the Texas libertarian is vehemently critical of President Donald Trump for, as he sees it, throwing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange under the bus.
