I am happily retired after 35 years of Labor and Delivery nursing. My passions now are two wonderful grandchildren, quilting on my HQ 16, sewing, and going where life takes me with my husband of 28 years. I am primarily conservative with moderate views on a couple social issues.

    It's nice that you popped in to ask a question. Maybe you have time to visit the other threads and answer the questions that were asked of you.

    Sorry. I am on vacation in the Bahamas, so I have little time to spare. And there is still no requirement that anybody answer anybody else's questions, is there? So answer or not....it matters little to me.

    Quote from Avid reader
    I think the current crop of politicians are a reflection of what society demands. They are elected officials because you have an uneducated, gullible public who appears to be unable to differentiate real people from television personalities. When the masses have been conditioned by television and cannot distinguish between reality and entertainment, it becomes quite easy to manipulate them. Parents are unable to think for themselves and subscribe to the rubbish spouted by academics who have never lived outside of sterile academia or even lived lives. Psychiatrists and psychologists who are so obviously inadequate can dispense advice for payment and society not only allows this but it's a social distinction. How many politicians are lawyers and exactly how stupid are they. Ben Carson, a neuro surgeon and just how much of on imbecile? Michelle Bachman, a lawyer, Rick Perry a governor, Chris Christie a whale, when you allow these caliber of people to be successful role models, then the lunatics have taken over the asylum and the resultant ethics follows. This is a country where money is the benchmark for success despite how acquired. Boasting and self aggrandisement is an acceptable norm and selfies celebrated. Neither of my kids would dare practice any such behaviors without serious consequences. You are either considerate and respectful of others around me or I will quickly let you know regardless of whomever you are. My Dad is not my friend and I am not my children's. I am a parent and that's where you start learning ethics and morality, from your parents. Draw your own conclusions as to why our politicians are so bereft of ethics. We have a very broken society because we allow morons in Hollywood to teach us behaviors.

    How interesting that you name only Republicans, but then blame the "morons in Hollywood to teach us behaviors?" When did the morons in Hollywood become Republicans?

    I'm not as interested as to why you think he is defending Trump. I'm more interested in your opinion on his arguments.
    I think is less defending Trump than trying to educate all the self-acclaimed Constitutional Law Experts out there about what the law actually says and what it does not....what is not treason and what might be. He is not known as a conservative so to say he is defending Trump is a reach......I do respect him for not towing the liberal party line and being man enough to tell us the truth about the law.

    Why don't you consider the Washington Post or NYT to be news organizations? Why do you think that they are "trying to take him down" rather than trying to unravel a political story that is potentially MUCH bigger than Watergate?

    [QUOTE=margin261;9510363]If that's what you choose to focus on, I shall answer it for you. In June 2016 Homeland Security granted her a B status nonimmigrant work visa to complete her legal representation of her client. So, she apparently was here legally.

    Next?[/QUOTE

    She was admitted legally, with some kind of special deal, but it is reported from several sources (sorry, I am off to church soon and cannot research them all now) that she overstayed the visa and was not here legally when the meeting occurred, when she sat in on that televised bit with the Russian Ambassador and other activities. That was my original question: why was she allowed to overstay her special visa time? If that did indeed happen, and bear in mind the Obama administration was in charge when it was granted and supposedly expired in January, who indeed allowed her to stay and why?
    (I know this is Fox news, so ignore it if you choose.....or find it on one of the MSM reports, if they bothered to report it.

    tntrn- I need to add to my post above. That case Ms Veselnitskaya was helping to defend? It didn't even go to trial. The DOJ led by AG sessions settled what was a $225M case for $6M. Oh, and Preet Bahara was working on that case just before trump fired him.
    Fired him before sessions approved settlement, I mean
    None of that answers the question as to why she was allowed to overstay that special visa she had gotten from the Obama administration.

    So ... is that why you skipped macawake's questions?
    I skipped them because unless I missed something, there is no requirement to answer another poster's questions.

    Please clarify what must happen in order for you to feel that your opinions are respected.
    I don't really care anymore whether you do or don't and that is why I mostly lurk these days.....all the back patting about how right the (generic) you are is my daily chuckle.

    So sorry this took me all of an afternoon to reply. I don't seem to have the time or frankly, to care enough as others to constantly monitor the comments of strangers who I suspect that many of have a genuine hate for me.
    I would add that there is no respect for differing opinions either....regardless of all the tolerance and inclusivity that is claimed.

    Do you imagine that many candidates that you have supported have gotten opposition "dirt" from Russia?
    I have no way of knowing, but DJJ got no dirt from the lady Russian. So I can say that the person I supported this time has not. I think it more important that she was planted to try and create exactly what is happening. After she was allowed to stay in the country after the special visa expired and then was meeting with Obama folks as well.

    Why was Trump Jr anxious to meet with her and obtain Russian government information about an American political opponent?

    Really? As if every political candidate isn't looking for dirt on their opponents...

    Quote from Lil Nel
    Macawake: Natalia Veselnitskaya entered the US in late 2015 under “extraordinary circumstances,” The Hill reported.
    The news site said she was granted a “special immigration parole” by the feds to help defend a client under criminal investigation.
    At the time, Veselnitskaya was representing a Russian businessman, Denis Katsyv, who was being investigated by the Justice Department for alleged money laundering.

    That is from the NYPost, which took it from The Hill. The original poster, of course, gave no context for the comment. I am sure it was just a tidbit they picked up on Fox News. Just like Trump. He made a similar comment during the press conference with Macron. But there you go, CONTEXT! And again, what we know about this Russian National is that she had deep ties to the Kremlin.

    But when she met with DJJ, she had overstayed that special visa stay by some time. So why was she even still here?

    Does anybody think that this kind of information-seeking on opposing candidates hasn't been going on for, like, ever?

    And this woman was allowed to enter the US without a proper visa, under the Obama administration, and was seen a week after she met with DJJ, at some thing that was definitely a Democratic deal.

    Why isn't any of this being brought into the discussion? Because it looks like the collusion, to trap DJJ and thus his dad, was done way before they Russian gal and DJJ met.

    This just occurred to me as I was reading about the shooting at the NY hospital, and it was reported that the gun used an AR15, and there was a picture of the rifle in the article.

    Doctor Opens Fire at Bronx Hospital, Killing a Doctor and Wounding 6 - The New York Times


    I really know very little about guns; most of what I do know I have learned from PFMB-RN.
    He reportedly snuck it in under his white MD coat, and after shooting several and killing one, he turned it on himself. Why is this the weapon of choice for these mass shootings? Wouldn't it be easier to conceal and bring in a pistol? Is this rifle that much easier to use? And it is that easy to use on oneself?
    News reports often get it wrong. But I would find it difficult to sneak MY AR-15 in under a lab coat and impossible to turn it on myself. Perhaps because I am 5'2" but just sayin'.
