Even out of office Trump is working on behalf of Russia. Throughout his presidency the former reality show host repeatedly tried to weaken the NATO alliance. He then went to North Korea and said he and Kim Jong Un fell in love. Putin would love to weaken our support for South Korea. And Trump has been working to do just that.
Former president Donald Trump on Friday accused his South Korean counterpart of ripping off the United States, while continuing to highlight his supposed friendship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

If none of the architects of the insurrection are going to be brought to justice at least have hearings to investigate what happened. There are still plenty of unanswered questions.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) renewed her call for a congressional commission to investigate the January 6 Capitol insurrection in a “Dear Colleague” letter sent to her Democratic House colleagues Friday.
It didn't take long before Joe Biden started breaking his campaign promises.
It took HBO to do what the mainstream press wouldn't. Investigation journalism is now rare. Since getting the truth isn't as profitable as sensationalism:
Who is Q? The leader of the right-wing conspiracy theory group known as QAnon has remained a mystery for several years, but a new HBO documentary says it’s identified “Q.”
"Cuomo’s executive order requiring nursing homes to take Covid patients was disastrous, resulting in thousands of excess deaths. But it was the cover-up that requires resignation: half a year of continuously lying to the public." - The Nation:
American billionaires could fund two-thirds of Biden's COVID-19 relief package just using profits generated during the pandemic
Imagine how much could be done for America if the rich paid their fair share of taxes:
American billionaires have earned so much money during the pandemic that they could fund two-thirds of President Joe Biden's COVID-19 relief package using profits generated in the last year, a report shows.
There is a new Jim Crow in the South. And they are just as bad as the old Democratic ones:
Representative John Kavanagh, a Republican legislator who chairs Arizona’s Government and Elections Committee and is shepherding through a bill to make voting more cumbersome and therefore rare, described his party’s motives with blundering candor.
No mistaking it. It's no longer a dog whistle:
Ongoing efforts to impose new rules on voter registration and ballot casting within Republican-controlled states and jurisdictions are racist “post-Reconstruction Jim Crow-era laws — and that’s not hyperbolic,” voting rights activist Stacey Abrams said Monday.
Once again we see extreme tolerance when it comes to MAGA supporters of Trump who break the law and/or rules. This officer cannot be trusted to police a largely African-American community. She brings discredit to law enforcement. She should be fired.
The NYPD is disciplining an officer who wore a “politically-oriented patch” while on duty — a day after video surfaced of a sergeant sporting a “Trump Make Enforcement Great Again 2020” patch at a Brooklyn protest.
There is no reason the Democrats can't subpoena Trump to testify at his Senate trial next week. Makes you wonder if they are cowards or just plain stupid. They didn't subpoena him during the first impeachment because he was a sitting president. What's the excuse this time around? Dems have still not obtained Trump's taxes even though courts have determined that they could get access.
Democrats are wasting time impeaching Trump a second with no chance of him getting convicted during the Senate trial. They should be prosecuting him for his acts of treason. He incited an insurrection against the United States on January 6th. That is a crime. Those who actually attacked the Capitol many were charged with federal crimes. Why not Trump.
...Democrats should absolutely force Trump to testify. First, he is finally out of office, depriving him of his favorite defense. And while his defense rests largely upon the argument that it's unconstitutional to convict a former president in an impeachment trial, that doesn't mean the Senate can't demand that he appear.
