Cup of Joe Politics –– Episodes

John McCain, Trump’s Flipping Friends, Mexican Trade Walls

Lots going on this week. Here’s just a few topics from today’s packed show…

Senator McCain’s Passing: Arizona Senator John McCain passed away last Saturday at the age of 81. He was famously a POW in Vietnam, and despite the fact he was offered an early release, he refused until all the other men held with him were also freed. The White House had reportedly prepared remarks for the president honoring McCain. We discuss what really happened.

Trump’s Flipping Friends: One thing Trump said in a Fox and Friend’s interview that no one mentioned… He said he had lots of friends who’d been involved with flipping…. Who knows anyone that’s been flipped on or who flipped? Only a criminal would have friends like that.

The Mexican Border Wall: Trump guaranteed Mexico would pay for it. There is a 14 minute PLUS montage on YouTube of all of the times he said he make them pay for it and sometime he even suggested Mexico would like it. They aren’t going to.

NAFTA, err, the Mexican-American Trade Agreement: This deal isn’t much different from NAFTA, except that it doesn’t include Canada. Yet. Agricultural products are still not subject to tariffs and there isn’t a renegotiation after 5 years, although we know our President just takes these agreements as suggestions. I don’t think he will tear this deal up, because it’s got his name on it. Therefore it is tremendous. Many people are already saying it is the greatest deal ever negotiated.

All that and SO much more on this week’s Cup of Joe Politics Podcast.

HUGE gains in Mueller’s probe, Trump rates himself, & we try our Magic 8 Ball again

David Pecker, owner of American Media, which publishes The National Enquirer, has been granted immunity in the Micheal Cohen Case. Pecker, who’s a friend of Trump and would “catch and kill” bad stories about Trump, apparently has more info about the President to share with prosecutors. We’ll discuss the evidence. Brian has an update on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. Seth Blair is here to talk about the latest primaries.. a couple of governor seats out west.. and we are coming up fast on the midterms.
We’ve got all that, the latest defense of Trump from his biggest surrogates, and the Magic 8 Ball on this week’s Cup of Joe Politics Podcast.

Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani broke out his newest strategy to Chuck Todd over the weekend. “Truth isn’t truth.” I don’t care that Trump slept with people other than his wife. He isn’t the first person to do this, he’s not the first President to do this. I care that he lied. And he continues to lie. He instructs those around him to lie. A large chunk of the public still doesn’t care that he lies. And he lies some more when called out on his original lies.
Alaska and Wyoming voters went to the polls. BOTH of those states will elect new governors on November 6th. In Wyoming, the republican is essentially a shoe-in for governor. The GOP race included mega-donor Foster Friess — AKA Rick Santorum’s billionaire. Remember the aspirin between your legs guy? Well, he lost. But the race is going for the Republican nominee. Now over to Alaska’s race for governor, where a split democratic vote risks handing the governorship to Republicans.
It’s the Ultra Right Wing Conservative Magic 8ball…and many, many, people…a lot of people are saying that they want to hear more from it. And speaking of walking away, Rudy Guiliani should. From the law profession. He’s not good at it. He just makes everything worse. And he married his cousin. In fact, I bet the Cup of Joe Magic 8ball is a better attorney than America’s Mayor.

Oh my Omarosa! Lordy, we have the tapes. And the midterms are coming…

We tackle Rudy Giuliani and his continued employment, plus a deep dive into an important midterm showdown.

Join Joe Aguiar, Seth Blair, and Brian Forster this August 17, 2018.
Is Donald Trump a racist? Does he want a race war? Former apprentice contestant and ex-assistant to the president Omarosa thinks so. Oh Lordy, there are tapes! And they back what Omarosa is saying, so what’s the latest on Celebrity Apprentice: White House Edition?
Omarosa is back with a vengeance, and we have ALL the tapes. The good news is.. she’s great at playing this game. The bad news is.. she’s great at playing this game. So here we go again. 
We had primaries this past Tuesday in Connecticut and around the country, I’m not sure most people were aware of it. Brian is highlighting a big one right here in CT that might have bigger implications? Is there a Blue Wave coming?

The Deep State also planted Gary Busey and Meatloaf into the Apprentice years ago. It’s just a matter of time before they are activated and called to action.
When Omarosa first mentioned the president may have uttered the N word, most of us were like, yeah, that sounds about right. If there are no tapes, why would the president need the Apprentice’s producer Mark Burnett to call to tell him there are no tapes? Because you would’ve already known, if you never said the word on-set…

The media can’t decide whether or not to trust Omarosa, but they certainly like interviewing her. How do those books sales look? Omarosa learned what she knows about media manipulation from Trump. And she’s a natural. She’s got the insults, she has the poise, she’s quick on her feet!
She made exactly the same pay that Chief of Staff John Kelly makes. And he got to fire her, for some reason in the situation room. As you know, Trump likes to threaten that he has recordings, or tapes, like with Comey. But Omarosa actually provided tapes to the media.
And Rudy Guiliani continues to push misinformation and outright lies to cover for Donald Trump. We’ll get into that and more crimes committed by the Trump Family Syndicate, on this week’s Cup of Joe Politics Podcast.

Oh my Omarosa! Lordy, she’s got the tapes. Quick! Whats the Plan, Rudy Guiliani?

Trump Tower Truth, Alex Jones gets axed, 2018 election updates

The President threw his son under the bus over the Trump Tower meeting, making Bob Mueller’s case look easy.. so the meeting was about getting dirt on Hillary Clinton. We’ll document all the lies about the meeting and the cover up, it’s almost comical.

Brian Forster is going to explain the first amendment as it relates to Alex Jones.. you can’t take away someone’s first amendment rights, can you?

Seth Blair is here and the Republicans are insisting that a win is a win after a very close race in Ohio.. a place Trump won by a landslide in 2016.. the blue wave is coming?

We’ve got all that and we’ll deep dive into the Russia investigation, on this week’s Cup of Joe Politics Podcast.

Mueller Closes In, Ghost Guns, and Another Stupid Task Force

Let’s put the Russian Hoax, Stormy Daniels, the Obstruction of Justice case for firing FBI Director James Comey, and let’s see what Trump has actually done. He cut taxes for the rich, eliminated taxes that benefit him, ripped up the Paris Accord and the Iran Deal, while legitimizing Kim Jung Un and Putin.

Eliminating common core, investing $550 billion for infrastructure, impose a hiring freeze on federal employees, defund planned parenthood, eliminate gun free zones, allow healthcare deductions from your taxes, cancel funding to sanctuary cities, guarantee 6 week paid leave, close parts of the internet where ISIS is, and develop a plan to defeat ISIS in 30 days, create targeted child care tax credits, expand mental health programs, sue his accusers of sexual misconduct, and of course, build a wall and make Mexico pay for it.

A federal judge just stepped in to to block do-it-yourself directions for untraceable 3D printed guns.

The Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988 actually makes it illegal to manufacture any firearm that is not detectable by walk-through metal detectors. To get around it, Cody Wilson put a small bit of steel into the body of his plastic 3d printed gun, which makes it perfectly legal.
And you mentioned these are untraceable. They are, since you make them right from home! Not only that, these can be made undetectable. You could bring these through security pretty much anywhere. And no one would have a clue until the shots started.

Help! We are all under attack! Not by Russia, that phony collusionist Witch Hunt trumped up by the fake news media has been well documented on this show…Not by ISIS either, and certainly not by Intellectualism, with facts and other dangerous assertions…but by our own government’s insistence that we love thy neighbor and treat others with dignity and respect. The horror! The Injustice! Make America Great Again!

Screw the CIA! Everything is great! Nothing to see here!

Joe Aguiar, Seth Blair, and Brian Forster tell you what matters in the news right now.

Last week, on the show, I said “I would like to see Trey Gowdy get punched in the face. And I’m confused by the reaction, I thought what I said was was very clear, but listening back to the transcript.. my people said I should make a clarification.. so in case it wasn’t obvious, What I meant to say, was that I wouldn’t.. not want to see Trey Gowdy get punched in the face. I hope that clarified things.”
The president is making threats, because the noose is getting tighter.

Is it Treason? Trump gives Putin a Huge Helsinki Win

Listen now!


Is it Treason? Cup of Joe Politics Podcast
Joe Aguiar, Seth Blair, and Brian Forster tell you what matters in the news right now.
This week’s show can’t wait until Friday, the Trump Putin summit in Helsinki was an unmitigated disaster. Democrats universally condemned Trump, many Republicans have as well.. Here’s where things went completely off the rails.

Trump called the European Union a “foe”.
Trump has called the media “the enemy of the people”.
Trump congratulated Putin for winning his election earlier this year, a man who kills journalists at home & assassinates foes in Europe, just for putting on a soccer tournament.
Serious question, what would Trump be doing differently.. if he were actually a paid Russian agent? He’s finally good at something. Putin looked pleased.
Senator Mark Warner tweeted;
“The president of the united States sided with Vladimir Putin over the unanimous assessment of the American intelligence community,” Sen. Warner says. cbsn.ws/2LnO1sz
Conservative Bill Cristol tweeted:
Putin won. America lost.
Trump’s own Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats released a STATEMENT
“The role of the Intelligence Community is to provide the best information and fact-based assessments possible for the President and policymakers. We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election…”

Here’s my question; why is he still in office? If only there were a way to chat

This week has already been rough. And it’s only Wednesday! You know that here on the show, we offer you the facts, and the fact is we have a President who talks out of both sides of his mouth. It gets difficult to keep things into a singular coherent message.

Luckily, through a stroke of good fortune, we have stumbled onto a device that can help make sense of our President’s stream of consciousness. Today, we proudly unveil our “Ultra Right Wing Magic Eightball!”

GOP Collusion Hearings stoop LOW and Trump hurts military servicemen, helps Putin’s Russia

GOP Collusion Hearings stoop LOW and Trump hurts military servicemen, helps Putin’s Russia

We look into a newly-killed program to help bolster America’s military and more on the SCOTUS pick Kavanaugh.

Joe Aguiar, Seth Blair, and Brian Forster tell you what matters in the news right now.

This Week’s Topics:

Conservative voice George Will ended his affiliation with the Republicans for their embracing of Donald Trump. If the president fails as badly during his summit with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, as he did in the summit with North Korea, the consequences could be catastrophic. The President is under investigation for colluding with Russia. Immigrant families now have to pay for DNA tests. A caged three year old had a court date this week. 
If “they shouldn’t have come here is your argument” you lost… at humanity. And you don’t represent American values.
Why would North Korea or Iran ever sign? I’m no expert, but I assume trust is pretty important. President Trump said he doubts the sexual abuse accusers at Ohio State and is siding with ally Jim Jordan. 
If Hillary Clinton is involved in a pedophile ring because of emails mentioning the word “pizza”… then there’s real evidence Jim Jordan protected a sexual abuser. Apparently only Democrats have to be held to this high standard. That’s the price you pay for being “tolerant”.
Who is Brett Kavanaugh? Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest, or MAVNI for short. George W. Bush.
NATO meeting in Brussels, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council. Most of us expected him to blow it in Brussles. He accused Germany of being “captive to Russia”. 64 percent to 18 percent, Americans surveyed in a Poll say the president DOES NOT have the power to pardon himself. GOP? 29% say he can; 45% say he can’t.
9% say they would support pardoning himself— including just 17 percent of Republicans.
I don’t care if you take the high road or the low road. I just care that you take the road that leads to your polling place on November 6th, 2018.
