Tax and Spend Republicans, Voter Suppression, and the Murder of Jamal Khashoggi

Donald Trump and the Republicans have reacted to the gruesome murder of Jamal Kashoggi like we figured they would. They say he’s not a real American, he’s a Muslim, it’s a Turkish problem, we don’t know who did it, could have been anyone… maybe a 400 pound guy living in his mom’s basement. Trump does a lot of business with the Saudis – they don’t want to mess that up. The Republican party went from tolerating Trump, to covering for Trump, to getting completely behind Trump and propping him up. And that’s why we talk through it every week on this show. It’s not hate. It’s disappointment.

Brian Forster will tell us why Trump and Kushner can’t afford to deal severely with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, and it has nothing to do with diplomacy.

Plus, Republicans are always talking about voter fraud, but the real issue is voter suppression. Seth Blair will report on that and how it could impact this year’s election.

We’ve got all that and more, on this week’s Cup of Joe Politics Podcast.

Dr. Ford and Kavanaugh testify, Republicans React, and NOW the world Laughs at us

Kavanaugh wants a lifetime position as a Supreme Court Justice and he thinks calendars are substantial enough evidence to prove his innocence. That alone should prove why he isn’t fit for the seat.

We’ll get into the testimony and the Republicans ridiculous defense of Kavanaugh with Seth Blair.

And Brian Forster will fill us in, and Trump’s officially the laughing stock of the world, his hilarious UN speech went over well.

Now, a little preview from today’s show…

November 6th is becoming a referendum on whether or not we want accused sexual predators to run the country. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP hired female lawyer Rachel Mitchell to ask questions to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during her hearing so ensure they were asked in a respectful and professional way. They aren’t capable of doing it themselves. The reason he gave is the problem.

We want this hearing to be handled very professionally.. not a political sideshow… which is how they’ve handled the entire situation. They don’t want to get to the truth. Otherwise Mark Judge would be testifying. They want to confirm a slime ball even though the majority of Americans don’t want him on the Supreme Court.

Imagine if you applied for a job and said you can’t see my past records.. you would never get hired. And this is more than a job interview, it’s our country’s future, the very moral fibers of what our children will live with for decades. Transparency in government is never a bad call. Here’s more indefensible, defense today of Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh says the claims against him are “uncorroborated.” Legally speaking, he’s wrong. The claims by at least two women do come with evidence to back them up. For people who aren’t aware of it — and people who are but pretend that they aren’t because it’s bad for their politics — sworn witness statements are evidence.

The failing New York Times published an article a week ago that said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, during a private meeting in the early weeks since taking on the Mueller investigation, suggested that he should wear a wire when talking with Trump and that he should try to build support among Trump’s cabinet to invoke the 25th amendment to the President. Rosenstein denies the 25th amendment comment, and claims the wiretapping remark was said sarcastically. Predictably, Trump-supporters lost their minds.

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?
