"What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists, is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents." 

~Robert Kennedy

It's as if he was looking into the future and talking about "the resistance".

There are extremists on both sides (like Ted Nugent and white supremacists) and they are both a huge problem. But the resistance isn't about extremism, it's about putting country before party, finding out if our leaders did something they shouldn't have, and pushing back against policies that hurt us. Protesting legally. Getting engaged in the political process like we should have been all along. Demanding the truth and accountability.

Dear Science Chic,
Please point out to me where Ted Nugent torched police cars and looted stores as did the "resistance".

What one does with their words can inflict as much damage as what they do with their actions, especially when someone is such a popular figure. I never said Nugent torched cars, but he is an extremist with his views - he's made statements about killing our previous President. To the tune that he actually had to apologize publicly for his words.

Regardless, that's a tangent. Trump is officially under investigation. By our Senate, Special Prosecutor, and one state Attorney General, plus numerous other lawsuits that were pending before his election. Any thoughts on what's happening regarding that?

To me, it seems our current president sets a really poor track record for integrity and truth.

Trump sets a bad example? I think most politicians are scum and liars, maybe I am cynical, but I see them as sociopaths who will do anything to win election and help those who got them there. Trump is just a little more in the open about it. Career politicians are better at hiding their selfish desires.

'The Resistance' had nothing to do with torching those cars. If you read one sentence past what you read on breitbart or hear on hannity, you would have known that it was done by a group that calls themselves AntiFascists (AntiFa). They have nothing to do with the organizing that has beenhappening around the country in support of 'resistance' to trumps agenda.

They have shown up at Berkeley and Portland as well as other cities where there have been peaceful protests. They like to show up when you have the alt-right (aka nazi's) to create conflict and chaos. If you look at any of the pictures where there is violence at these protests you will see groups all in black including black scarves covering their faces. They are cowards just like the alt right are and their activity does nothing but create turmoil. To attempt to paint other peaceful 'resistance' groups with any of the AntiFa bullcrap is either ignorant or willful attempt to delegitimize a group of people that have done nothing but follow in the tracks of the 'tea parties' to get their voices heard.

Now you know what it is like to be tarred with a broad brush! Like the Left likes to do with Trump voters. "If you are a Trump voter, you are a racist! If you are a Trump voter, you hate the LGBT community! Politics is complicated. People vote for many reasons. Supposedly racism is way up, but an African-American man was elected President twice in the last nine years by a record amount of Americans. Trump was not my first choice, but I thought he was better than Hillary Clinton, a corrupt, career politician.

New developments: 2 separate investigations going on. Robert Mueller's federal task force which recently impaneled a grand jury, and New York Attorney General Eric Schniederman with three state level investigations into Trump and associates that overlap: the Trump Modeling Agency and human trafficking, Russian organized crime, and money laundering.

Expansion beyond Flynn grand jury is a sign the investigation in election meddling is ramping up

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in Washington to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections, a sign that his inquiry is growing in intensity and entering a new phase, according to people familiar with the matter.




No Matter Who He Fires Or Pardons, Trump Can’t Escape This Investigation
August 2, 2017 by Kimberley Johnson

But there’s another investigation happening, and if Trump or his aides (including his three children, Ivanka, Don Jr. & Eric) are found guilty, he won’t be able to use his pardoning power — because that investigation is being conducted by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman who has previously taken Trump on and won.


Claude Taylor‏ @TrueFactsStated
NYAG is has 3 overlapping investigations. 1. Russian Mob 2. Money Laundering 3. Trump Model Management. Indictments expected in all 3. 100%.

Claude Taylor‏ @TrueFactsStated 18h ago
When all is known about Trump Model Management and it's role in bringing in underage girls to US-even some of base will be horrified.

Claude Taylor‏ @TrueFactsStated Jul 31
1. Trump Model Management is being investigated for human trafficking by @AGSchneiderman it is being alleged that agency brought young women

2. into country from Russia/E Europe. Some younger victims were given new passports that made them seem of legal age. This is not salacious

3. for the purpose of being salacious. This is happening and I will continue to tweet about it. This investigation is just one of three that

4. Schneiderman is coordinating. The other two deal with money laundering and Russian Organized Crime. There is overlap between the 3.


Claude Taylor‏ @TrueFactsStated Jul 30
1. Breaking news from Schneiderman source (not source on "Maria" tweets) Epstein trying to work out plea deal on human trafficking case

2. involving Trump Model Management. Epstein said to be offering "tapes" of significant investigation figures in exchange for leniency.

Epstein is this guy: The one weird court case linking Trump, Clinton, and a billionaire pedophile

Claude Taylor‏ @TrueFactsStated Jul 30
1. I have important breaking news about "Maria" who according to this account was sexually assaulted by Donald Trump.



2. "Maria" is not her legal name but she is alive and reportedly safe. She has given a taped, on camera interview to a major broadcast

3. network. That network is holding interview for "legal reasons". In the interview on camera she confirmed facts as laid out in deposition.

4. She was in fact sexually assaulted by Donald Trump and her life and her family's life were threatened by him. All confirmed. This is

5. subject of an ongoing criminal investigation. "Maria" remains in hiding. I will have more to say about this story in hours/days to come.

Maria was the other witness in the lawsuit that was brought by the anonymous lady prior to the election last year and who dropped her lawsuit after receiving death threats.

A 3rd grand jury has been seated, this one at the state level in New York from the NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's investigation into Trump Organization's racketeering (RICO).

Schneiderman source: A grand jury has been seated to hear evidence in Enterprise Corruption(NY RICO) case against Trump Organization.

Claude Taylor‏ @TrueFactsStated 6 hours ago
NYAG source says 4 indictments likely by Friday in Trump Organization case-one of them in Trump's inner circle. I will work to verify this.

Claude Taylor‏ @TrueFactsStated 5 hours ago
Indictments haven't happened yet so we can't know if they will be sealed. Sorry-I've not been released to say which member of inner circle.

Exclusive: First charges filed in Mueller investigation
By Pamela Brown, Evan Perez and Shimon Prokupecz, CNN
Updated 8:57 PM ET, Fri October 27, 2017

Washington (CNN) - A federal grand jury in Washington, DC, on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.
The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.
