    On the Dutch News, they seem to have already the "contents" of the book . It seems that Trump has 'formally" asked Xi to help him his his elections. I'm not surprised. He also talked to him about the "soy beans", in order to get the farmers vote for him. Thus he's just as any "baby" who asked for an"soother'

    Are the Dem's awake or still in trauma about the corrupted "bought votes" during the impeachment process?

    The only thing I can say; wake up Biden and Democrats; you are taken for dumb asses by the Trump mafia.

    The "Note" they sent to Arizona says enough about their tactics.

    From Trump's point of view there is no such think as election interference nor is there such a thing as dirty politics, there are just winners and losers, and winners do what is required to win, and losers are too afraid (or too stupid) to do what it takes to win.

    He has the same view on business; winners do whatever it takes, and losers don't.

    "Laws and regulations only enable losers, and cripple winners."

    In his mind its not any more complex than that.

    wwjd, yes you are absolutely correct. There was more in this book about the total incompetence of the Trump "governing". Which should give "normal thinking" people the shivers. Looking at the total picture, then it shows how the Dem's never did fight this, but only spent lots of time on "words" and "procedures" only. No one can tell me that the Dem's did not know about what is in Bolton's book. However they sat on their lazy asses and therefore lost the impeachment by "bribery" of the other party and still never did anything about it. Trump and his cronies don't give a shit about Constitutions or "laws"; the Dem's should know that by now; they will bribe everything or person to reach their goal, that is the motto of the Trump Party. In the meantime the Dem's are only shoving "paper" and nothing else.

    So my inclination is that this country is doomed, if it continues this way.

    I should point out that Trump does not care too much for "Team" related stuff. The only Team he likes is a group of people who are (forgive my graphic analogy) willing to suck his dick anytime, anywhere. You can bet you everything you have that during job interviews, he has asked, and received, a BJ from women during job interviews.

    Symbolically speaking, Mike Pence has sucked Trump's dick every day since he joined trump team, and if trump were asked who gives the best head, Trump would say that hands down it would be Mike Pence. Nobody sucks dick better then Pence.

    Clearly Bolton was not willing to go that far, and got fired for it.

    What you describe is an "cult" culture; they will also take the hydro............,which Trump prescribes. I hope they drink also gallons of Glorox.

    Michelle Goldberg advises NOT buying the book - but I'm still planning to read it, since I have it on reserve at the library.

    This is why :

    "Bolton has presumably known about Trump and Xi’s exchange since it happened last year, did not resign over it and decided to say nothing until he could monetize it. That tells you much of what you need to know about his ethics. This is a bad book by a bad person, which nonetheless contains some important revelations. Informants emerging from criminal enterprises, after all, are rarely unblemished."

    Yes, Bolton always was an asshole just like any Trumper; but reading his book, then you should lift out what is "reality" and what are the "cult fringes". As always in this country "profit" drives this publication, not sincere motivations. Present day Republicans have become "cult" members; some members, if they have to leave the club; do publish their grievances. That's all folks!

    In the meantime an Judge dropped Trumps demand to stop publishing this book. So Bolton you can make some money; while the country goes down the drain due to your in-action during the "impeachment' process. Thanks!! (Barf bbbbbb)

    Let's face the truth, trump filled his so called cabinet with undesirables, they become even more undesirable with every passing day. When you treat the people you hire like a piece of garbage, then you get back what you gave.

    So true; however if you destroy an whole country in less than 4 years and still have 45% supporters, then there must be something more wrong than any other country, who would have by now an revolution or the "boss" in jail. what is wrong with this backwards country. Just keep kissing the flag and go bravely to church or Trump's rally's, sure that will save this country . Don't let me laugh. Do something Democrats before it is too late; your present policy as with the impeachment is not working. I hope and pray Biden knows what he's going to do if he wins.

    Any action of the Dem's related to that he asked Xi to help him with the elections? Very strange indeed, because the last time he did, we had an "impeachment" which ended into an disaster. Now it is complete in the "open" and he should be "impeached" again because this is even worse than what happened in the Ukraine.

    Of course there will be lots of "talk" but by next week everyone has forgotten to punish "traitor" Trump.

    Does this country have any decency and morals as well enforceable laws left? I guess not.

    Yes we have become an "third" world country, not any better than Brazil.

    There was another loss for the administration today. A federal judge decided against Trump’s attempt to stop the release of former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s memoir of his days in the Trump administration. U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said it would be impossible to stop the distribution of the book, which has already begun to circulate.

    The judge also blasted Bolton for moving ahead with publication without an official government sign-off on the book certifying that it did not reveal classified information. He warned that Bolton might face prosecution if he has exposed national security secrets in the book. Bolton’s lawyer welcomed the decision and said “we respectfully take issue… with the Court’s preliminary conclusion at this early stage of the case that Ambassador Bolton did not comply fully with his contractual prepublication obligation to the Government…. The full story of these events has yet to be told—but it will be.”

    Nadler said that actually Trump and Barr should be impeached, but said that such was just about impossible because of the Senate and McConnell and therefore would deliver the same results as the last "impeachment". Thus just sit at home and cry is the new motto? The disclosure of Trump begging China to help him win is even worse than the Ukraine case.

    Thus as I've said so many times that the "system" and "laws' are totally corrupted here and how is it possible that just one corrupt idiot out of an tiny State of Kentucky can determine what is good for the country. Yes this is S. America, let's join them!! Get rid of the " electoral college" immediately, unless we love to muddle along on this same path.

    But I guess this will not happen and possibly McConnell stays; then the hands and feet as well the whole body of the Dem's are staying tied!!

    I also doubt, even if Biden is elected he likely won't be able to get rid of the "electoral college". All the s.ob.'s from Kentucky should be jailed for life!! And no one makes any effort to get new governing laws or curtail the "powers" of the Senate. Waiting for the elections and doing nothing, will free the hands of the Trump and McConnell mafia to do whatever they want to disrupt the elections and get McConnell re-elected..

    Dutch:

    Kentucky is the latest example of voter suppression, which is why getting rid of Moscow Mitch has always been difficult.

    The state of Kentucky will be conducting its primary elections next week, and state leaders have drastically reduced the number of polling places open on Election Day.

    “Kentucky cutting number of polling places for Tuesday’s primary from 3700 to 200. There will be one polling place for 616,000 registered voters in Louisville’s Jefferson County, where half state’s black voters live,” author Ari Berman tweeted Friday night.
