In response to the letter by Lois Henderson Jones ("America has been a hole for some at times," The Daily News, Jan. 20): She is so right! How long did it take us to get to where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. got the majority of people to listen to what was going on? Then we had presidents who listened and tried to steer America on its "original" path, "That all men are created equal," by God.

I might add, Dr. King gave up his life for this, as did Abraham Lincoln.

When will people see "racism" for what it is, lordship and power! Remember the First Commandment, "Thou shalt have no other Gods before me."

Trump is making himself the "Golden Calf!" Thank you Ms. Jones for telling it like it is.

Sometimes doesn't take much to impress people.

Gary Miller

Doyle! That phrase in our constitution was that all people (men or women) were equal under the law. It took some time to adjust our conduct to match the phrase.
It was never intended to say or claim a 6'5" dummy was equal to an 5' genius. They are different with different expectations. The only time they were equal was at birth.

Paula Flinn

The most divisive president ever is our current one. The firing of McCabe was an act of revenge. Getting rid of 2 heads of the FBI is unheard of. It is the first step to fascism; to get rid of good people who don't necessarily agree with you, but are involved in protecting the American people and our rights and freedoms.

Doyle Beard

He needs to remove many more. Drain the swamp dry. Any simple minded one could tell after listening to Comey lay out the case against Hillary and do what he did knew there was something wrong in the FBI house.

Carlos Ponce

Paula, please pay attention to the news cycles the next few months. It will be an eye opener for the anti-Trumps and those who deemed Obama a deity. " Getting rid of 2 heads of the FBI is unheard of." - BUT IF THEY"RE CORRUPT WHAT DO YOU WANT?

Paula Flinn

They were not corrupt, Carlos, just not subservient to #45. I don't think I heard anyone claim President Obama was a deity.

Carlos Ponce

You must look at one of the FAKE NEWS stations, Paula. They are CORRUPT! Just stay tuned in for the next few months. All will be revealed leading to civil unrest funded by George Soros. But the truth about their corruption will reach HIGH into the Obama administration. The prophets have spoken.

PD Hyatt

Yes, it would seem as if some would rather continue with all of the breaking of laws that had gone on for 8 years under the past administration and is still going on with the clowns that were elevated by the past administration.... When Nixon went after the democrats during Watergate the democrats (rightly) went after him. But now that the shoe is on the other foot and it was the democrats who went after the republicans it seems like the democrats can not or refuses to see that what the past administration did is way past what Nixon and his cronies did.... You talk about protecting the American people and their freedoms yet you refuse to see that the past administration was doing everything that it could to remove the freedoms that you claim to hold dear.... The FBI heads were not for law and order they were for a particular group of people or party, just like the heads of the IRS, DOJ were under the past administration.... Being for right does not equate to whom is in power it is for right.... You can't have it both ways....

Paula Flinn

Wait until Robert Mueller finishes his investigation. I believe this President will be charged with crimes. If you know of any specific crimes the past administration committed, you should state them. Please do not quote Fox News. They are not credible. The DOJ works for the American people. There will be some that are Republicans and some that will be Democrats. The President should be able to work with all people, not just those who agree with him. You talk about the past administration committing crimes and doing everything it could to remove the freedoms we all hold dear, yet there were no scandals and no crimes discovered. There were no people in the past administration charged with crimes. This current president commits crimes everyday. He has not divested himself of his businesses and is still, overtly, making profits on his properties. He has fired 2 law abiding people in the DOJ simply because they were not loyal to him. He has been accused of money laundering through his properties, and possibly Obstruction of Justice when he asked FBi Director James Comey to back off the Gen. Flynn investigation. You accuse the FBI of not being for law and order, but you have no proof. You are undermining our intelligence agencies on the word of a paranoid president who is a narcissistic sociopath and a pathological liar. It is President Trump who is a danger to this country. All of this is a diversion to keep people from believing that he was in collusion with Russia who meddled in our election. Wait for Robert Mueller to complete his investigation. We will all know.

Carlos Ponce

With time the truth will be revealed but some Trump haters will never see the light.[innocent]

Doyle Beard

Poor loser. Snowflake?????.

Doyle Beard

very uninformed About reality just maybe s and mights or whatever that has no substance.

Gary Miller

Three down with 30 to go. Many let go can look forward to jail. Hired by Clinton or Obama and promoted to high positions because they believed the Democrap party is more important than America or America's laws. G.W.Bush is partly to blame because he didn't fire any who were hired by Clinton. He thought they would support him for his "compassion" of letting them keep jobs.

Jarvis Buckley

Pres. Trump, smartest hardest working leader we have had , probably ever.

Kelly Naschke

Now that the memo has been released, can we have a public viewing of Paula Flinn choking on her words?

Jim Forsythe

This memo will not change anything. If you were in favor of Trump before it's release , you still are. If you were not before it's release, you still are not a fan.

So a GOP memo, altered by a GOP congressman committee chairman who had to recuse himself, released by a GOP congress with approval of the GOP potus whose admin is the focus of the memo, despite objections of the GOP appointed FBI director, and the GOP appointed deputy attorney general will clear the admin of any wrong doing and prove to be the fault of the dems. .

Carlos Ponce

"...altered by a GOP congressman committee chairman..."
Of course it was! He wouldn't want his English grammar teacher to see punctuation and syntax errors. But asides from that, those who saw it before and after say they are virtually identical.
Anyone who says there were changes in content are just LYING.
If this is such a NOTHING, why are the Democrats running scared?
"Just runnin' scared, feelin' low
Runnin' scared, you love Trump so
Just runnin' scared, afraid to lose
If he runs again which one would you choose?

Then all at once he was standing there
So sure of himself, his head in the air
My heart was breaking, which one would it be?
You turned around and walked away from me."

Jim Forsythe

This memo change anything for you. Are you still a fan of Trumps?
It changes nothing, the investigation will continue.

Carlos Ponce

"...the investigation will continue" Yes, many Democrats and Trump haters will be investigated. Corruption during the last administration will be revealed and the tribunals will begin.

Jim Forsythe


The investigation will continue. Trump,  Russia investigation ,Mueller.
This memo will not change anything. If you were in favor of Trump before it's release , you still are. If you were not before it's release, you still are not a fan

Carlos Ponce

And Trump will be exonerated. Problem is Mueller will pick some scapegoat to indict just to save face. One person's life and career ruined for nothing. So sad.[sad]

Jim Forsythe

Four, so far have been indicted . What is sad is that two have pleaded  guilty of not acting in the best interest of the USA. The other two will have their day in court.
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates have been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges that include conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to launder money      
This is what they are accused of.
Between about 2008 and 2017, Manafort and Gates devised and executed a scheme to defraud the United States, banks and other financial institutions. Manafort and Gates funneled millions of dollars in payments into foreign nominee companies and bank accounts, opened by them and their accomplices in nominee names in countries including Cyprus, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and the Seychelles. Manafort used his hidden overseas wealth to enjoy a lavish lifestyle in the United States, without paying taxes on that income.  Gates aided Manafort in obtaining money from these offshore accounts, which he was instrumental in opening. In total, more than $75,000,000 flowed through the offshore accounts. Manafort laundered more than $18,000,000. Gates transferred more than $3,000,000 from the offshore accounts to ther accounts that he controlled.

George Papadopoulos Pleaded guilty,Michael Flynn Pleaded guilty

Carlos Ponce

“Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime.”- Lavrentiy Beria, head of Joseph Stalin’s secret police
Robert Mueller is the Lavrentiy Beria of today. The indictment has absolutely NOTHING to do with Trump. Mueller went fishing. Special prosecutors should not be given this much leeway. Wonder what Mueller would do with Jim Forsythe if you were on his hit list?

Jim Forsythe

"The indictment has absolutely NOTHING to do with Trump." overlooks the facts about the Trump four. The first one ,Michael Flynn, was Trumps National Security Adviser, he  held a senior position in the Executive Office of the President and advises the President on national security matters
. The NSA is one of the President’s most important officials, sometimes outranking the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense in  influence on national security and foreign policy.Michael Flynn advised the President . To try and say that Flynn had nothing to do with Trump is to overlook  the fact that Flynn job was to  give Trump advice that shaped what Trump did.  Very few in the White House has more power than the  National Security Adviser, as they advises the President on national security matters
When   Flynn told the ambassador, Sergey I. Kislyak — that the Obama administration was Moscow’s adversary and that relations with Russia would change under Mr. Trump , shows that Trumps hand picked National Security Adviser had a position of power that he tried to Trump .If one thinks that Flynn's indictment has NOTHING to do with Trump, is just a excuse to not admit that some of Trumps hand picked people, have not been the right picks.
If someone thinks that the indictment of Flynn has absolutely NOTHING to do with Trump, they are not admitting the facts that Flynn,Manafort, Gates  and Papadopoulos they all worked for Trump.

. If Mueller was to investigating Jim Forsythe, it would mean that I was in a position of power in the White House. If after the investigation it was proved that I did something that was not good for the USA , I would receive what I deserved. It also mean that I was part of Trumps team.

Carlos Ponce

Dream on Jim but with the dawn comes awakening. RISE AND SHINE, WAKEY, WAKEY! These indictments have nothing to do with Trump or his campaign. He will still be president. Mueller's net is stretched so far that Democrats are the ones being caught.
But it's fun watching you Democrat, Liberal Trump haters LOSE IT!

Jim Forsythe

Whatever Mueller's net catches, great. Already, he has four of Trumps, people.
Trump, Clintons, Flynn, Manafort, Gates  and Papadopoulos,if found guilty, which two already have said they were , they deserve what they get. .Flynn was part of Trumps inter circle, and  washing with tomato juice, will not get rid of the stink.

Being Trumps campaign chairman, before Trump become President,Manafort was part of team Trump.
 Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and one time business associate Rick Gates were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiracy and money laundering in connection with an intensifying investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. 
Mueller took over the criminal investigation into Manafort’s financial dealings to find out  whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the White House. If found to be true, let the chips fall were they may.
Mueller is not going anywhere, unless Trump fires him.
 

Carlos Ponce

"Whatever Mueller's net catches, great."
I wonder what Jim will think when indictments are issued against Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and some Leftist Supreme Court Justices. I hate to see it but at least JUSTICE will be done. What have they done? Stay tuned! That's why they wanted Hillary to win- so the coverup could continue.

Jim Forsythe

From my last post I included  the Clintons. "Trump, Clintons, Flynn, Manafort, Gates  and Papadopoulos,"
If any are found guilty, they should be punished. As two have been found guilty, they will find out what their punishment is , in the near future.
Muller is working his way up from the bottom, and others may be indicted. If found guilty, I hope they get what they deserve. with no regards to party.
I do not think that any Supreme Court Justices will be removed, as it be would be hard  to get a two-thirds vote of the Senate, as required.

Carlos Ponce

SCOTUS members will resign when confronted with the evidence. Another will announce "retirement". Indictments against Bill and Barack. George W. will be "shaken", and the two others will meet their maker.

Jim Forsythe

Sixteen justices have resigned, and the last one was in Abe Fortas in 1969. 
Sen. Chuck Grassley saying they will resigned ,does not make it so.

Sen. Chuck Grassley said the following on Apr 18, 2017 , and it did not happen as he said it would in the summer of last year.
"MUSCATINE — During a visit to Muscatine Tuesday morning, U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he expects a Supreme Court Justice resignation within the year.
"I would expect a resignation this summer," he said." Why would it happen now? Who is the Supreme Court Justice that will give their resignation? What have they done, that is that bad? 
 
If  Kennedy, Ginsburg  Breyer want to retire they will, If the Democrats win enough seats in the midterms, they may retire at that time. If not, they may wait until 2020. To say that someone is going to die, is saying something, no one knows when it will happen and in bad taste.

Is this what you are going by?
