Blatant lies and the little men that tell them.

It will be interesting to see what people, in what states, will choose to accept the lies of their elected officials?

In my opinion, it will tell a lot about the people in those states.

No one has been more blatant with their public lies than Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Obviously, he is betting that the voters of that state don't really care. After all, Donald Trump has lied with almost every breath and they don't seem to care. Why should they care if Lindsey Graham blatantly lies to their faces?

It is a study in character. Are the people in Kentucky willing to overlook the hypocrisy and lies of Mitch McConnell? There are few that can equal the hypocrisy of Moscow Mitch.

These blatant liars believe that their people don't really care if their Senators lie to them. They expect that from their politicians.

The Supreme Court has become very politicized.

Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump have taken it to a new level. Trump believes these are "his" Justices. Last night, he said at his rally that he would want the courts to stop mail-in votes from being counted after November 3rd, and they should declare a winner. This is how far they have gone in de-legitimizing our elections.

Supreme Court Justices are obviously not exempt from the pressures of the cult. They, too, can be manipulated. This Court is looking more and more like an arm of the Republican Party. That is not what the authors of our Constitution intended.

If they show themselves to be as partisan as it now appears, what can be done to de-politicize the Court? Some have recommended expanding the Court to make it more non-partisan and balanced. Would that work?

Cory Gardner (Colorado) has gone very negative on Hickenlooper..

The airwaves have been flooded with ads accusing Hickenloopet of breaking the law and stealing millions in public funds.

The latest ads are in grainy black and white with a rather menacing look on his face. I don't know who are producing these ads but they must be spending a fortune at keeping Gardner in his seat.

I have not seen any recent polls but I would be surprised if the ads are not impacting this race.

Would you hesitate to vote for a bald-faced liar?

Several Republican Senators are betting that their supporters do not care if they are lied to. Just call it "politics".

How can they be trusted on anything if they are so sure there is no price to pay for public dishonesty?

Does character no longer matter to voters?

Donald Trump is an embarrassment.

He is not funny. He is a very poor example for a comedian.

He appeals to the worst in people, the lowest common denominator.

He has dragged the Republican Party with him every step of the way.

He is incompetent and they know it.

He is a liar and a bullshitter and they know it.

He is mentally unstable and they know it.

They are sheep. They are embarrassments to our country.

It is sad.

Democrats cannot keep the filibuster rule or they cannot win.

That is the only option they have to change the direction of this country.

Someone has to govern this country. They cannot rely on weasels like Mitch McConnell to protect our Constitution or the democracy. They have sold their souls.

That is why the filibuster rule must go as soon as possible. Democrats must put our country back on the right track or it may be gone forever?

The wolves inside of us

Trump was never serious about winning the presidency in 2016.

He was just trying to pad his resume.

When he debated 17 other Republicans, he just wanted to put on a show. It was all an act.

But one by one, all of the Republican challengers fell by the wayside.

Felix Sater, in an email, stated that he thought they might be able to get "our boy" into the White House.

Russia thought it was a joke. They were as surprised as Donald when he won the Republican nomination.

Donald was only trying to build up the value of his brand. He wanted to build his Tower in Moscow and donate the top floor to his hero, Vladimir Putin. It would make all the other apartments under Putin much more valuable.

He never stopped making business deals while he was running for President. He lied about the Moscow Tower, according to Michael Cohen, his fixer. It was in his blood. He could not stop making deals. And most of the people around him knew that a lot of the deals were not completely above board.

Then, he had to run against Hillary Clinton. Russia offered to help him in his race. Naturally, Donald saw nothing wrong with that. "Russia, if you're listening...", he said.

It was an opportunity that Trump and Putin could not pass up. They used every trick in the book to win the election. They tore down their opponents with character attacks and they suppressed the votes in critical areas in states that Democrats were expected to win. The results were above all their expectations.

Trump never stopped making his business deals with the most shady characters in the world. His supporters treated him like some sort of cult leader. They didn't care who he associated with or what crimes he may have committed. He put on a show for them and they loved it.

But, this time, it is not a joke. They are dead serious about winning the election. They expect to win. They expect to rob the Treasury of this nation and to destroy our democracy. It is as serious as a heart attack.
