Last summer, Michelle Duggar recorded a robocall to fight a nondiscrimination ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas, a city eleven miles from the "19 Kids and Counting" family's hometown. 

 "I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children. The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men — yes, I said men — to use women's and girls' restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only."

"I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with "past child predator convictions" that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls. 

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar about this robocall, and just how blindly hypocritical it was given their son Josh's prior actions, which include sexually molesting five young girls, including his five-year old sister.

Megyn Kelly: Michelle let me ask you, because you were in the news for making a robocall that suggested transgender people might want to go into the bathrooms of girls, locker rooms of girls, and that they may be child molesters. Folks have used that in the past week against you saying how could you unfairly, in their view, compare transgender people to child molesters, suggest they are child molesters, knowing what you know about Josh.

Michelle Duggar: I think that protecting young girls and not allowing young men, and men in general, to go into a girls’ locker room is just common sense.

Megyn Kelly: But this is different, because you injected child molestation into it.

Jim Bob Duggar: I think you actually said pedophile in that, and actually a pedophile is an adult that preys on children. Joshua was actually 14 and just turned 15 when he did what he did. And I think that the legal definition is 16 and up for being an adult preying on a child. So he was a child preying on a child. 

*“I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying. I’m like, ‘That is so overboard and a lie really.’ I mean people get mad at me for saying that, but I can say this because I was one of the victims.” -Jessa Duggar

Victims of Christian persecution??  Or their own hypocrisy?

Too complex to post in a paragraph or two, but let me do some bullet points that might help all.
Why does the government charge interest (8%) on student loans, more so on protectional High Earners (more Taxes more doctor/lawyer makes), instead of interest how about repaying by barter with government and work couple days or whatever a week for couple years in clinics..
Clinics: yes take the 500,000,000.00 (as starter) given to the PP, and open neighborhood clinics instead, with the free or low pay doctors paying off their student loan interest payments. Just like a doctors office but not the emergency room at a local hospital where aspirin charged 25.00 Clinic space can be found for cheap at your local Malls that are shutting down or close too, 4k this year.
Min. insurance should be sold like min. car insurance, with $50 co-pays to keep everyone from running to doctors office with a stuffy nose.
NO MORE POLITICANS FREE HEALTHCARE AND THAT MEANS THEIR STAFFS AS WELL.

There is a point to what you are saying. And the level of issues that persist within the Healthcare arena certainly doesn't help in the end. Not addressing these issues only leaves to a bigger and compounded problem not fixed! My hospital stay bill included: $100.00 for the foot booties, that at your local dollar store costs exactly that!

“When I go to my primary, I don’t have a copay. I don’t have a copay in the ER either." "in any event I think we should prevent anyone who can't afford it from getting care - no more freeloading!" That's interesting, considering I must pay something for my visits.

As for those who espouse "freeloading", how about then a "NO MORE POLITICIANS FREE HEALTHCARE AND THAT MEANS THEIR STAFF AND FAMILIES AS WELL." Couldn't agree more on the issue!

The Obama-era law required members and staffers to buy insurance on an exchange rather than through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, as a way to ensure that Congress experienced the same perceived benefits and hardships under the law as the people they represented.

Members of Congress and their aides are unlikely to feel the effects of these changes current or future otherwise, if the Affordable Care Act is repealed and not fixed, members of Congress would be able to return to the federal plan that they, like millions of federal employees, were so fond of.

Twenty million other Americans won’t.

But for people who suggest or endorse the denial of healthcare to others based on a biased uneducated rhetoric is simply a cold solution to take.

Under this new "beautiful" healthcare plan some 9 million of our vets are in risk of no coverage period! Are they "freeloading" as is suggested by many? Is this how we reward them for their service already provided and given?

What ever happened to being a good Samaritan? What many seem to espouse is the antithesis of the "us vs. them" mentality that characterizes tribalism and ethnic nationalism. A belief that some are deserving, where as others are not. And that their personal piousness being a criteria as such!

‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ - - Matthew 25:34-36

There is no commonly agreed sinshikhagle definition of “cybercrime”. It refers to illegal internet-mediated activities Illegal Access, Data Espionage, and Data Interference.

The main purposes of it are propaganda, information gathering, preparation of real-world attacks, publication of training material, communication, terrorist financing and attacks against critical infrastructure. Trump has avoided firmly blaming Moscow for campaign hacking in the past,

"A lot of people interfere. It's been happening for a long time." He argued variably that it could have been Russia, probably was Russia and indeed was Russia, while insisting it could have been other countries, too, and adding: "I won't be specific."

You won't be specific simply because you can't in the first place and always speculating. Trump has repeatedly expressed doubts that Russia was necessarily involved, GOP leaders in Congress "resisted" the administration's pleas to join in warning the public about the Russian efforts, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) "voicing skepticism that the underlying intelligence truly supported the White House’s claims."

Trump has repeatedly failed to take the necessary steps to harden the country’s election systems against hacking in 2018 or 2020. More obsessed with the overblown and non substantive suggestion of millions of illegals who voted and helped to cost him the popular vote. Or so he thinks anyway...

Obama could have done more “behind-the-scenes, Trump has not been any better. His administration, does not seem to have any strategy to deal with this. Much less an expression of concern either. Theirs has been a strategy of a great deal of denial and blame from the beginning!

Trump said the CIA had informed Obama about the hacking months before the election but added that "mistakes have been made." His choice in such extraordinary public expression of doubt about the U.S. intelligence capabilities by a president while standing on foreign soil is downright shameful!

SweetOlBob I want the Truth! •

This guy has no interest in the truth.
The truth is that PRESIDENT TRUMP has increased respect for the United States, lowered the cost of operating the white house, slowed illegal immigration, created and saved jobs, and given hope for the future to small businesses and American workers.
That's THE TRUTH !

Kevin Brookshire SweetOlBob •

"The truth is that PRESIDENT TRUMP has increased respect for the United States, lowered the cost of operating the white house, slowed illegal immigration, created and saved jobs."

Really, could you detail that respect you are commenting on? Most of the International community certainly do not express a "respect" towards him or us. It would be the opposite! He certainly has lowered the "cost" of the white house simply because nobody wishes to take a position under him.

Trump has filled fewer than 5% of 556 key executive branch positions in the federal government, well below other incoming presidents and an underperformance that goes to the core of competence. Hundreds of vacancies in the federal government affect average Americans.

All the ambassadorships, with the exception of those for the United Nations and Israel, are also unfilled.. There's certainly room to streamline the bureaucracy, and the administration has taken steps aimed at improving government efficiency and services.

That's all well and good, but for the administration to conduct such a deep dive, it needs policy people at least in the top tier of management to understand what needs to be cut and what should be saved.

The VA, with an annual budget of nearly $180 billion and 365,000 employees serving millions of veterans, is a priority for Trump. Yet it has no deputy secretary, undersecretaries for health and benefits or chief financial officer.

Millions of Americans chose Donald Trump, in part, because of his business acumen and hope he'd focus those private-sector skills on big government. Because he can't personally reform every corner of a vast bureaucracy, he needs the right people in the right places to carry out his vision.

Six months after he was elected, where are they?

Kobach and Trump have both made unsubstantiated claims that large numbers of undocumented immigrants did vote in the 2016 U.S. elections....the information requested by the panel. ... purpose of the group is to “promote fair and honest federal elections.” Such information and data could also be used as a tool to commit large-scale voter suppression in favor of a party or their candidate.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday blasting the two dozen states, asking "what are they trying to hide?" The very same could also be asked of you too! When it is related to your tax returns, business dealings, as well as the persistent denial by yourself regarding contacts by your campaign staff with that of Russian representatives.

So...."what are you trying to hide?" And why? Certainly we have the right to know, don't we?

Trump’s alternative election facts, and this commission was set up as a pretext to validate Donald Trump’s own personal megalomania and personal obsessiveness. A pathological egotist, seeking his own advancement over everything else, including the needs of the company, organization, or even the country they have been selected to lead?

Contrary to his proclamations he should not be thought of as the “greatest job producer that God has created”,” the richest man, the greatest negotiator, the builder of walls”, etc. - - The fact is that he wishes to be powerful rather than charming, and seeks to be feared rather than loved.

"To this type belong many lunatics and most of the great men of history."

Difference is that President Trump firmly denied actual "Russian meddling" into our elections, and specifically with aim to help Donald Trump and, especially, with any kind of collusion with Trump's camp as a pure "schizophrenic politically driven" American internal fight story.

He asked in response to direct Megyn Kelly's question, if American partners, be it "intelligence community" or else, can present any specific FACTS, that can prove those "crazy" allegations?

She was stunned and can't tell anything beyond repetition of Liberal "talking points" that our President Trump stated many times are "FaKe news" and absolute garbage.

"President Trump firmly denied actual "Russian meddling" into our elections, and specifically with aim to help Donald Trump and, especially, with any kind of collusion with Trump's camp." Yeah, we are all familiar with his denial routine as it pertains to issue(s) of collusion.

As well, members of his staff had also denied any meetings had taken place with Russian representatives, something Trump himself emphatically denied to reporters too. The question here shouldn't be to argue or debate speculation or supposition based on the minimal facts as they are currently.

But a more clear focus on a real troubling matter that revolves around these individuals and their lack of disclosure, misrepresentation, outright lying, and basic deception. The willing intent to and failure in their disclosure as it relates to their application(s) for security clearance.

One of them being Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who did not disclose meetings he had last year with Russian officials when he applied for his security clearance. And these meetings were not just matters of "getting to know you", but they seemed more centered towards something a little bigger.
So much as it was, it was worth them to not disclose and lie about these multiple meetings, and a failure to not disclose the information even though the law states otherwise in this matter.

And anyone who would suggest that these individuals were acting on their own behind Trump's back without his knowledge would be absurd! They certainly were directed in the issue, and they also had the understanding that what they were doing wasn't ethical or even legal either.

Generally, we all know what it is that we have a tendency to do when we get caught up in a lie, and knowing of its possible consequences as a result. So if they were truly not acting in some manner of illegal, moral, or ethical contribution, why then should they have taken that path to begin with?

It's hard to accept an individual such as Trump and the many faces and contradictions that he represents. Knowing also of his past business dealings, his lack of decorum, and plain undignified arrogance leaves his credibility non existent and along with his motives being very suspect in the end!

The Dems can't put a damper on this. I think we may be missing the real reason for this "trumped up hysteria over the Russians and, now, obstruction.
It really has little to do with Trump's agenda, or, at least, the agenda that everyone has been talking about.

ObamaCare, Tax Reform, Regulation elimination, are all opposed by the left.
However none of them are existential threats to the Dems existence.
Trump's investigation into voter fraud is.

The Dems keep harping on there being no proof of voter fraud.
There is proof, and that is in spite of their best attempts to hide it and their prevention of investigations into voter fraud.

I suspect that voter fraud is much more widespread than we suspect and that Trump's estimate of 3+ million may not be a gross exaggeration.
They need Trump out of the White House to end the investigation.

shirebrook67 JamesMadison1791 • 3 minutes ago

Why is it that you only seem to identify Democrats as the group exclusive to voter fraud? Are you saying that the Republicans and the GOP have committed no sin in this matter themselves?

Two dozen secretaries of state, Republican and Democrat, have released statements denying that voter fraud occurred in their states. The National Association of Secretaries of State released the following statement on voter fraud: "We are not aware of any evidence that supports the voter fraud claims made by President Trump …

In the lead up to the November 2016 election, secretaries of state expressed their confidence in the systemic integrity of our election process as a bipartisan group, and they stand behind that statement today.”
Trump told a group of members of Congress that "between three million and five million unauthorized immigrants voted for Mrs. Clinton," "In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally"

Trump, for his part, asserted that both he and Ayotte (New Hampshire) would’ve carried the state if “thousands” of people had not been “brought in on buses” from Massachusetts to “illegally” vote in New Hampshire.
Trump-stoked voter fraud paranoia legalizes voter intimidation,

The implications of this executive action by Trump are twofold. First, it encourages state laws that restrict voting for the most vulnerable in our society and severely reduces the turnout of minorities, young people and the poor. Second, it further affects the already abysmal voter turnout that plagues U.S. elections.

The Trump administration is calling for the Commission on Election Integrity. There is no integrity here. There is no effort to expand and enhance voter participation in American politics. There is no effort to play fair, to play by reasonable rules, to bring more people to the polls. The evidence is more clear on voter suppression versus voter fraud:in this issue.

Fraud is practically non-existent, suppression is on the move. Simply winning isn't everything, the ends don't always justify the means and, more basically, you don't cheat. That goes for both Republican or Democrat!
The United States has one of the worst records of voter turnout among developed nations. According to Pew Research, Belgium, Sweden and Denmark rank in the top three, with voter turnout at 87 percent, 83 percent and 80 percent respectively.

The United States scores way down the list at 27th, with 56 percent. It's hard to imagine that the world's largest democracy ranks that abysmally. We seem to make it more difficult for our citizens to vote by requiring more and more hoops to jump through.

And for what? A paranoia induced suggestion of something practically non-existent in the end.

Victory by intimidation. Cry foul when there is no foul. Alternative facts. Yes, cheat and blame the other side for your transgressions being committed.
