Why Donald Trump's Contract With Andrey Rozov May Not Be The Evidence To Prove Collusion And Could Possibly Land Him In Prison

Given the release of the contract between Donald Trump and Andrey Rozov by CNN, this means that Trump, while certainly guilty of perjury with regards to the Trump Hotel in Moscow, is not likely going to face his political demise. Make no mistake, it doesn't look good for him by any stretch; however, proving whether or not this led to collusion is going to be much more difficult. Intent is the determining factor, and much of the evidence for that would likely be in Russia (No, Vladimir Putin and his goons/cronies won't give it up; it makes them look bad). If anything, it illustrates Trump's business relations with several Russian Oligarchs (including the amount of leverage he had over them), while also proving just how much of a liability he's become.

In so far as Robert Mueller's probe is concerned, the contract may not be the investigation's smoking gun. What ultimately will be is hard to say. Rest assured, Mueller most likely has other evidence lined up that's even more damning than that contract. But given the course of the investigation since March 2017, there's been a constant theme: no hard evidence that Trump colluded with Russia to win the presidency. The only case that's been proven is that Trump had engaged in several illegal business practices before entering office, but even that's been common knowledge for years. The fact is that his actions are catching up to him, and, while it still questionable as to whether or not he's going to be impeached, they will likely land him in prison once he's out of office.

The Right-Wing And Corporate America Are In For A Nasty Surprise Come January

The newly elected class of House freshmen are about to give the Right and Corporate America numerous headaches when they're sworn into office on January 3. Many of these freshmen are progressive insurgents who got into office by knocking down a few incumbents in the primaries. They've shown that they're not only listening to the progressive grassroots, they're channeling their energy into forcing the Democratic House leadership to partially abandon their attempt to knee-cap any progressive priorities. This doesn't mean that they'll win on ending the practice of PAYGO (Pay As You Go), but it does mean that they've got the leadership on notice that they're ready to be headache inducing back benchers if they feel like they[re not being listened to.

For Corporate America, it means that they are now dealing with a class of freshmen incumbents who largely won't play by their rules. This is an absolute nightmare for them, as they'll have no control. For the rest of us, it'll be a good thing, as it will finally start breaking Corporate America's 50-year coup and war of attrition on all of us. This may mean that some corporate excesses could be reined in to a degree. Example: Just look at the skyrocketing prescription drug prices, that'll likely be a top agenda item. Seeing some legislation passed on curbing the pharmaceutical industry's ongoing and absurd price gouging is very likely to happen.

There are numerous other examples of Corporate America's excessive political power. The bottom line is that there will be some more new faces in Congress who've got a massive incentive on reining this excess in. That's the impact of the progressive wave is having on the order of the day in Washington.

Why The Right Should Be Panicking Given The Outcome Of The 2018 Midterm Election

Seeing that the Democrats have taken control of the House of Representatives and cut down the number of governorships that the Republicans have control over means that the right wing is starting to really panic. They should be because they have absolutely no credibility with their regressive policies and distractionary hatemongering. If the conservatives in Congress and state houses bothered to pass laws that benefit all of us, they'd have a case to run on to hold on to power. Here's the thing, they haven't and that's why their panicking is a good thing for the rest of us. We're likely going to see some laws proposed that are meant to be symbolic as they'll help make the case for the left that the right is no longer interested in policy making and is just drunk on money and power.

Vladimir Putin Is Losing Ground With The Russian People

An article came out on the AP earlier today regarding Vladimir Putin's approval rating among the Russian people. Turns out that his approval numbers have just dropped below the 60% threshold. What this translates into is that Putin's stranglehold on power is beginning to come apart. This doesn't necessarily mean that he'll be under 50% by the time his term expires in 2024, and there's still a strong probability that his numbers won't get to that point. Go ahead and read the article for yourselves, and hit me up on either Facebook or Twitter with any of your own thoughts.

What I'm Thankful For

I would not be where I am today without the love and support of my family, friends and loving lady. That's what I most thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

What To Plan For Should The Republicans Quash The Democrats

My latest reaction to the possibility of the Republicans absolutely quashing the Democrats in tomorrow's Midterm elections:


Some other progressive talkers like both Farron Cousins of The Ring Of Fire Radio and David Pakman have also shared their concerns about this as well:

Bomb Suspect Caught

Thank God Caesar Sayoc was caught so quickly by the FBI in Plantation, Florida. It turns out the guy has a history of criminally violent conduct. The most disconcerting factor is his level of political radicalization; together with his readily available access to the materials needed to construct the bombs.

Why We Should Still Turn Out Regardless Of What The Republicans And Their Far-Right Goons Do To Keep Us Away From The Polls

From voter suppression to voter intimidation, it’s pretty clear to see that the Republican Party is growing desperate to hang on to their status as America’s majority party. That reason alone is exactly why we need to still come out and make our voices heard in the upcoming midterm election in 2 weeks. If you live in a Republican-controlled state, don’t let yourself be intimidated out of exercising your right to vote.

As Barack Obama correctly pointed out in a video on Youtube, voting is the only way to improve our already dire circumstances. Now is not the time to become disengaged. Let’s answer his call by heading out to the polls on November 6.

My #MeToo Story

The MeToo movement has been showing a lot of traction on social media recently, and I feel the need to tell my story. I faced verbal/emotional abuse on 2 separate occasions. The first time was in kindergarten, while the second happened in 6th grade. Both times left me scarred emotionally, with exceedingly bad social anxiety and suicidal depression. I have the most impossible time actually trusting authority figures because of both experiences.

The first time that the abuse happened was in kindergarten came from a teacher who used fire alarms to scare us kids into compliance, and went completely ballistic over me scribbling when engaging in art. Who does this to a 6-year-old? If you're that young, scribbling is completely expected. There's no reason for someone to scream about something as minor as that. Thank God my parents got me out of there. I can't stress enough about speaking up, especially when going through an experience like this.

The second time was in 6th grade, with a 1-to-1 para-professional being verbally abusive towards anyone that he felt disrespected him, which included the vice-principle. He baited me at times and humiliated me with unnecessary screaming fits in front of my classmates. I really felt guilty whenever a classmate decided to risk a detention just to tell him off. The worst came in the form of him bad-mouthing me in his native language (which was Spanish, 1 of the 3 languages I can speak conversationally. Really stupid on his part.), not realizing that I knew what he was saying. The good news was that the district was aware of his actions and was in the process of getting him terminated.

Those times were incredibly difficult to get through, but their effects have made my life a living hell at times. Being bullied by the adults who were charged with ensuring that I was in a safe environment was the worst kind of bullying to have gone through. It's not an experience I wish on my fans and/or detractors. If you have any stories make them known, and keep in mind that you're not alone.

Comcast Needs To Be Put Out Of Business

Comcast has been terribile over the last several months. Overcharging and sidelining consumers, it's the worst company to do business with. They're more interested in illegal profiteering than expanding their broadband service (cable, phone, internet). On top of that they're now looking to limit free speech, and that's not something we need. The FCC should just shut them down asap, for the good of consumers across America.
