Trump Voters FREAK OUT After Realizing They Aren’t Getting Tax Cuts
 
05:30
Trump voters have taken to Twitter to express their outrage over the fact that they aren’t getting those lofty tax cuts that the Republicans promised them. When the legislation was passed, middle class and working class Americans were told that their taxes would go down starting in 2019, but so far those returns have not materialized, and some hard working people are actually paying MORE in taxes under the new plan.

Well, now that the government shut down, as over in the IRS appears to be working again, people are starting to file their taxes, both Democrats and Republicans alike. And what a lot of Trump supporters have found out is that, oh, they didn't get those republican tax cuts like they were promised just 15 months ago. Now, if you'll remember, Republicans told us, an analysts told us in economists told us that the tax cuts immediately went into effect for the, for the top one percent, right? They, they got their tax cuts immediately. It was an accent at the end of 2017, they got the IRS for 2018. The rest of us, we had to wait another year. It is really didn't kick in until we filed our taxes in 2019. So we weren't going to get our paychecks, you know, blowing up immediately. Had to wait until the next year. Well, now that people are filing their taxes and still collecting paychecks, they've realized that they were swindled and Trump voters, Trump supporters are absolutely pissed off. And taking to twitter to share their horror stories about filing their taxes this year. A raw stories done a phenomenal job of kind of cataloging a lot of these tweets. So I'm going to go through. I'm and read just a couple here. Uh, let's start with this one from a a dentist. Jordan says, I am a Republican voter. I just did our taxes. The GOP tax bill costs my family thousands of dollars this year on our return due to changes thereby hitting us with the largest tax increase of our lives. We are middle class homeowners, homeowners. And you raised our taxes. Infuriating. Here's another one, says I have to pay $2,000 more in taxes this year. What happened? I voted for you. I thought you were fixing this. Not making it worse. I thought I would get money back this year. There's another one. Nyc Girl voted for you. Family. Have two hard working. New York cops did taxes for years. We would pay more and get a refund at the end of the year to help pay debt. FIRSt Time in 30 years, we had to pay more in federal taxes. I'm disgusted. Another one here from Joel Services at Potus. Thank you for screwing the middleclass with your tax reform. I have never in my life. I'm 49 years old. Had to pay into the IRS until this year. We have a combined income of $150,000. The middleclass voted for you. I will not make the same mistake twice. The list goes on. I mean this. You can read more. Just follow the link in. The description is video, but there's so many of them and now I've said in the past I'm going to stop showing sympathy for Trump voters voters. But listen, this, I get, okay, this, I understand. Not that I didn't understand the others, but, but I do have sympathy on this particular issue. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Samuel L. Jackson UNLOADS On Trump And Mitch McConnell
 
03:42
During a recent interview with Esquire magazine, actor Samuel L. Jackson held nothing back when speaking about Republican leadership today. He said that these were the same people who, when he was growing up during segregation in Tennessee, would call him the N word and would tell everyone that whites were becoming outnumbered. Jackson says that he’s angrier today than he was back then, and it is likely because they mask their hatred with nice suits and coded talking points.

Actor. Samuel L. Jackson recently sat down for an interview with Esquire magazine where he did not hold anything back when giving his thoughts on not just the current administration, but pretty much the Republicans at the top of our federal government and Jackson who grew up during the time of segregation in Tennessee in the fifties and sixties understands a lot about what it means to be oppressed, what it means to be treated as not quite a human being. And according to what Jackson told the magazine, he sees those same behaviors in the racist from the fifties in Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell. Here is exactly what Samuel L. Jackson said. Excuse the language, but these are his exact words. I'm angry or now about it than I was then just because I see these guys and I know these are the same guys, Trump and all those assholes, Mitch McConnell, they're all the same fucking guys. And when I hear their voices, I hear the same voices, those Twaings where they didn't specifically call you inward, they said, Negro, the Negro us. You know, as somebody who's lived in the south for my entire life, I, it's scary because even as a white person, I, I've heard that. I know the phrase he's talking about. I know the voices he's talking about because we still hear it in these areas. It still exists, and for somebody like Samuel L. Jackson to come out and say, I've lived through this. I went through this. I was apart. I was on the receiving end of it, and I see it today in these Republican leaders. You hear it in Trump's voice. You hear it certainly in Mitch McConnell's voice, but that's not all. It's not just the, you know, deep seated racism that's within these people. He even points out that the talking points are the same today as they were back in the 1950s because he said back then you would have these white people saying, Oh, why? It's they're going to be outnumbered. Soon we're going to become the minorities and the blacks are going to take over, which is exactly what we hear coming from Republicans today. We did a segment on it last week, former Maine Governor Paul LePage saying that the whites are going to be out numbered. That is a common talking point and apparently it's been around since the 1950s and that tells you everything you need to know about the Modern Day Republican Party. These people, they may not have called themselves Republicans at the time, but their mindset never changed. Just their political affiliation. That is who they are. That is what they grew up as, that as how they raised their children. Hopefully their children were smart enough to not follow in their footsteps, but that same racism that people like Samuel L. Jackson lived through in the 1950s is still alive and well in the United States today. It's just that the people in charge, they're not wearing the white hoods. They're wearing very nice suits going to work in Congress and the White House every single day. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Matt Gaetz Gets DESTROYED During Hearing, Then Lashes Out At Parkland Survivors
 
04:16
Republican Representative Matt Gaetz was part of a House Judiciary Committee hearing on gun violence on Wednesday, but after he was called out for making things up by a fellow Congressman, Gaetz decided to take out his fury on the group of Parkland survivors who were in attendance at the hearing. Gaetz made a fool of himself multiple times during this hearing, and he helped to expose the ignorance of the GOP with his outbursts.

On Wednesday of this week, the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on gun violence here in the United States. Unfortunately, my representative Matt Gates, the Republican from Florida's first district decided he wanted to use his time in this gun violence hearing to talk about Donald Trump's wall. Donald Trump, his good buddy, and it didn't go any way like Matt Gates thought it would take a look at a little bit of selection of what happened yesterday. It's the chairman point of order who, who's there isn't, is there rule or appointed parliamentary inquiry? Is there any committee rule that prevents a member of Congress from her sighting falls statements in a committee hearing that are unsupported by the evidence that are unsupported by the evidence or is or our members of Congress entitled, you just make things up. Board of specious arguments. It's a parliamentary inquiry. I'm not aware it off the top of my head. I haven't researched this question. I'm not aware of any such rule. I would also observe that, uh, the factuality of a statement is always subject to context by someone who disagree with disagrees with it. Um, and, uh, at a hearing such as this, if a member makes a, a, of a statement that is not born out by the facts, that suit is the prerogative of another member when his turn comes, uh, to comment on that or to point out his opinion and her opinion, I suppose, through the forest city. Thank you. Mr. Chairman, chairman. I have a point of parliamentary inquiry. This gentleman was status point of parliamentary inquiry. Thank Ms Dot chairman, Ms Dot chairman. Is there a, is there a process in the committee whereby if the very same people are repeatedly interrupting the time of the members that those people will be asked to depart the committee or is there. I will. Excuse me. The gentleman repeats that or any other comment? I will directly be removed. I will directly be removed if he repeats it. So here's the thing. Let me, let me take you back just a second here. Matt Gates began his little tirade talking about the wall and how a lot of these shootings wouldn't happen if we had the wall. He was absolutely making things up. So the congressmen at the beginning of that video was 100 percent correct to call them out for being an absolute liar after all, they were there to talk about gun violence here in the United States and instead matt gates was making up phony stories and how a wall might solve those problems. Well guess what, Matt, as was pointed out to you in the hearing, most of the mass shooters here in the United States are white guys born and bred in the United States of America. That's just the simple truth. And what's even worse is that you got so flustered for being called out for being disgusting liar, that you decided to take your anger out on the parents of Parkland victims who happened to be there by invitation at that hearing. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Rudy Giuliani Loses His Mind After Cohen Flips On Trump
 
03:58
In an interview with the New York Daily News this week, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani went on an obscenity-laced rant after learning about Michael Cohen flipping on Donald Trump. Giuliani went off the rails saying that Cohen should be disbarred and that he can’t be trusted. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses Giuliani’s meltdown and how it reflects the overall panic we’re seeing from Team Trump.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/11/giuliani-loses-cohen-flips-son-btch-disbarred/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Giuliani in an interview with the New York Daily News, a Kinda went off in this obscenity laced rant about Michael Cohen. Here's what he said. And uh, keep in mind is pretty strong language coming up. Just a fair warning there. Here's a Giuliani said he's a liar. That son of a bitch should've been disbarred months ago. He's a disgrace to the profession. He's a really bad guy. He's a Goddamn liar. It's no surprise that Cohen lied to Congress. He's a proven liar who is doing everything he can to get out of a long term prison sentence for serious crimes of bank and tax fraud that had nothing to do with the Trump organization. Now, Giuliani here, uh, is actually right about something. Michael Cohen should be disbarred. I've been saying that for months. Michael Cohen is a horrible lawyer. He has broken the law. He circumvented the law in many instances. And this man needs to have his law license revoked and needs to be permanently disbarred for life. The rest of it though, not so sure about that because Giuliani, you got to remember when you're sitting there saying that this man is a liar, he's a son of a bitch. He's a horrible human being. You have to remember that he worked for your boss for I think what? Twenty years. So if he was so horrible, so awful, so bad, such a liar. Why did your boss keep them around for so long? You see Rudy, you're a horrible lawyer. Um, we, we can actually look through your legal history and see how bad you truly are. And I have to remind you here that whatever you're saying to the press that can 100 percent come back to bite you in court because maybe they decide to ask you some questions in court. For example, why would you say that this man is a liar, a horrible person, and yet defend the man who hired him and kept them employed for almost 20 years? What does that say about your client? What do those audio tapes say about your client where Cohen and him are talking about paying off Stormy Daniels? Cohen is not an honest person, but at this point he's being forced to be honest because he is, as Giuliani said, trying to save his own ass right now and he knows the penalty for lying to the special prosecutor. We saw that earlier this week with Paul Manafort. It's not gonna end well for you and Michael Cohen knows it. Cohen also was one of the few people who Donald Trump did not come out and outright defend when he became embroiled in all of this. I mean Trump stuck his neck out for manafort and Papadopoulos out there telling us that people's lives are being destroyed, but he never said a word about Michael Cohen. The man who did so much him saved his ass countless time saved his company, was doing all kinds of shady deals for them and he couldn't even tweet out. I support Michael Cohen. That's part of the reason Cohen flipped. That's part of the reason he decided to give up this charade of waiting for Trump to come in and save him because he understood it wasn't going to happen. The only person Donald Trump cares about is himself and anybody else out there with any information about what's transpired with the Trump family, I suggest you go ahead and flip on him too, because God knows at the end of the day, if he gets the opportunity to save himself or save you, he's definitely going to save himself. That's what Michael Cohen realized. That's why he flipped, and that's why Rudy Giuliani, the guy that's got to defend Trump, is freaking the hell out right now.

Ivanka And Don Jr. Are Mueller’s Next Targets
 
04:26
According to reports, special prosecutor Robert Mueller is now setting his sights on Ivanka and Donald Trump, Jr.’s involvement in a real estate deal that may have been used as a political tool for Donald Trump. The deal revolves around the talks for Trump Tower Moscow and the planned delivery of a $50 million penthouse to Vladimir Putin. The pieces of the puzzle are now out in the open, the only question is whether or not they actually fit together. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.yahoo.com/news/mueller-eyes-ivanka-don-jr-s-work-trump-tower-moscow-003012099.html Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

According to a lot of reports, the two newest targets, or I guess the two latest slash biggest targets right now are Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. Specifically their involvement with the proposed Trump tower Moscow deal. Here's what we know so far, and a lot of this came out after Michael Cohen agreed to cooperate with Robert Mueller admitted that he lied in front of congress. He's been charged with that now, and he is fully cooperating, but what Cohen lied about was the Moscow deal. One of the things we've learned in this came out after that was that they had actually proposed giving vladimir putin a $50 million dollar penthouse in Trump tower. Moscow that has never actually come to fruition, has not been built. But there were multiple attempts by the Trump organization, Trump family to get it built. And that's where Ivanka and Don Jr. come in as. According to Cohen, they had been involved with the proposed deal to build the Trump tower in Moscow. Again, the involvement of Cohen himself in the Moscow deal is what he admitted that he lied to congress about. So here's where we're at right now. I mean, obviously an organization coming in wanting to build a building in Moscow. There's nothing illegal about that. That's perfectly fine to do, but. And this is the piece that molar still has to be able to put together. Improve. Was that proposed deal? Were the negotiations happening with Ivanka and Don Jr. and Cohen and even Trump himself? Were they to get some sort of political favor in exchange for building the tower in Moscow? See what's happened right now is that we have all of the pieces of the puzzle for Mueller. I mean we got so mucH new information, new evidence yesterday that at this point, yeah, we've got every piece we need. The question is, are they the correct pieces to this puzzle? Do they fit together? Because again, if Mueller cannot prove that they were somehow trying to use this real estate deal in Moscow to get the Russians to help them, you know, when the election, then there's nothing to it. This is just another real estate deal that never came through. Now do I think that's what happened? Absolutely not. I mean given the fact that Cohen is agreed to give information on this, it seems like there's probably a lot more to it than meets the eye, but at the same time we've been going through about a year now of getting hugely optimistic. Every time new indictments come out or when somebody starts flipping on Donald Trump and so far nothing. so at this point we've got to kind of reserve or optimism a bit and wait for that final report, which is what is happening now. But if mueller is specifically going after Ivanka and Don jr, which we know he is because sources have said that he is actually asked witnesses about Ivanka and Donald Trump jr's involvement in this particular Moscow deal. So we know he is going after theM.

Jared Kushner’s Father Is Headed For Financial Ruin Because Of Jared
 
04:15
Jared Kushner’s political ties and his seemingly never-ending corruption are helping to destroy his family’s fortune. New reports say that Jared’s father is now struggling to find investors for his business an property holdings, and that he could be facing financial ruin by the end of this year. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this. Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/04/jared-kushners-dad-shunned-investors-headed-disaster-report/ Ring of Fire needs your help!

LIKE and SHARE this video or leave a comment to help direct attention to the stories that matter. And SUBSCRIBE to stay connected with Ring of Fire's video content! Charles Kushner, the father of Jared Kushner, who is the son-in-law of the President of the United States, could be headed for financial ruin, according to a recent report, as early as the end of this year. Here's what's happening to Charles Kushner and his multi-billion dollar real estate empire in the state of New York. You see, Kushner is in debt, I think by about $1.2 billion. He asked to get investors and other kind of financiers to step in and help him with the properties and projects that he wants to do. It's a typical thing that happens in real estate. You're in debt until you sell a bunch of properties, then you get all your money back and then some. However, Kushner's having a really hard time right now because nobody wants to work with him because of the political affiliations and seemingly nonstop scandals coming from his son, Jared. So, because he cannot find investors, because nobody wants to work with him, he could be headed towards bankruptcy by the end of this year. I have absolutely no sympathy whatsoever for Charles Kushner. This is not, surprisingly, Jared Kushner's fault. Well, I guess, to an extent, it is, because Jared Kushner being thrust into the national spotlight has allowed that national spotlight to also shine on all of the horrible things that his family business has done. That's the problem here. It's not that Jared necessarily went and did all these horrible things that the company's been accused of. He was involved in some of them according to investigations, but it's the fact that people are now paying attention and they understand what kind of shady shoddy business Charles Kushner and Jared Kushner have been running for years. That's the problem that Charles Kushner is facing right now. And I'm sure it doesn't help that his own son is being investigated for four different things by four different organizations but sooner or later, all of this would've come out eventually. There's only so many times that any kind of big major business or company can continuously, allegedly, I have to throw in there, break the law without somebody stepping in and saying, "Hold up. We've got to take a look at this," and that's exactly what happened recently with the New York Department of Buildings, that's now investigating Kushner and the family business because they lied repeatedly on at least 80 different official state forms. So yeah, Charles Kushner probably isn't too happy with Jared right now. But at the same time, he needs to understand that he is also a part of this. This isn't just because of Kushner, it's not because of the fact that Jared is the son-in-law of the most hated President in modern American history. It's due to the fact that they're unethical businessmen and that seems to be a common theme among some of the people who are high profile Republicans in the Republican party. That's what we've come to expect. I would expect no less from Jared Kushner's father. After all, where do you think this kid learned how to do all the shady things he's been accused of doing? He didn't read a book about it. Probably learned it by watching Daddy, which according to reports, is what Jared Kushner, who is 36, 37 years old still calls his father. I'm curious as to see what kind of influence Jared Kushner will still have within the White House if his family ends up going bankrupt and Jared Kushner is suddenly worth $0. I'm sure in the eyes of Donald Trump, possibly even Ivanka, that's going to make him not just financially worthless, but also worthless as a human being. That's going to be interesting to see how that plays out.

Republicans Freak Out As Data Shows That Their Party Is Dying Off
 
05:19
New polling data compiled by the New York Times has Republican pollsters in full panic mode. The data shows that young Americans are disavowing the Republican Party in record numbers, not exactly the kind of thing needed to sustain a political party. As the older generation of Republican voters move to the great beyond, there won’t be enough people left to keep the Republican Party afloat. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2019/04/republicans-trouble-gop-pollster-freaks-data-showing-young-voters-fleeing-party/ Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Republican pollsters started freaking out earlier this week after new data analyzed by the New York Times was really showing that young voters are absolutely abandoning the Republican Party. The gap between the current 18 to 24 year old and 18 to 29 year olds in party identification has never been more stark than it is right now. Right now of that age group, you have 60% who call themselves democrats. 60% of that 18 to 29 age group says, I am a democrat. 33% say I'm a Republican. Okay, 60 to 33 a 27 point gap, and that's why Republican pollsters and analysts and strategists are kind of freaking out right now because they know that the Republican Party's biggest demographic happens to be the people who already have one foot in the grave right now. That also happens to be Fox News biggest audience and it's not sustainable. You know when you have a party or a TV network like Fox that is 100% dependent on people who know that they've only got a few years left on this planet, that's not exactly a good indicator for the longevity of your party. Now I know it's been a very long time in this country since we've had real viable third parties or since we've had one of the major parties kind of disintegrate and then a new one pop up. It's been well over a hundred years, but it's happened. It's happened many times in US history. And it could certainly happen again, especially given what we see about the Republican Party today. And here's the thing, the political scientists who looked at these numbers and said, yes, the Republicans have a big problem and that's what freaked out the strategists. But they looked at this and they said, here's the thing. Events that happen, uh, between the ages of 14 and 24 are three times more likely to affect your future political beliefs than any single event that happens over the age of 40. So what are these 14 to 24 year olds all have in common? How, what are the 18 to 29 year olds all have in common? Well, they've only lived through two republican presidents being one or one and a half the last a year and a half of George h w Bush's term doesn't really count. They don't remember it. So the two presidents that they were conscious for, George W. Bush and Donald Trump on the republican side, not exactly a, you know, huge glimmer of hope for the future of the Republican Party. But that is what an entire generation in this country knows. There is an entire generation in this country who from experience only knows Republicans as parties of endless war parties of lies, parties of tax cuts for the wealthy elite parties that don't give a damn about the middleclass parties of devastating economic policies, parties that don't know what the hell they're doing. That has a massive impact on those voters. And as the political scientist point out, those views are going to carry over with those people for the rest of their lives. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Matt Gaetz BUSTED Bragging To Trump About Threatening Michael Cohen
 
06:25
🌞 Need someone to talk to? BetterHelp is there whenever you need them - https://www.betterhelp.com/ringoffire/ Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz might be in even more trouble than we had previously thought, now that witnesses have come forward saying that they overheard the Congressman on the phone with Donald Trump where he told Trump that he threatened Michael Cohen via Twitter for him. This erases Matt’s apology and his lazy excuses and exposes his blind devotion and loyalty to the President and not to his constituents.

Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz has had a really, really bad week, but it's a really bad week of his own design. Earlier this week, in fact, the evening before Michael Cohen's testimony before Congress, Matt Gaetz tweeted out what appeared to be a threat against Michael Cohen, threatening to reveal all sorts of sorted details about his personal life and his family. You know, under the assumption that Colin was going to go in there and attack Donald Trump on Wednesday, Matt Gaetz wanted to make sure that Cohen knew that they had dirt on him too, so he should play nice. Well, immediately Gaetz got attacked for this tweet and not just by people on Twitter. The Florida Bar Association is now launching an investigation into Matt Gaetz to see if he did in fact tamper with a congressional witness. Uh, the house ethics committee is very likely also going to be launching an investigation into him and Matt Gaetz had to go on the house floor. He apologized to Nancy Pelosi. He says that he spoke to Michael Cohen and apologize to him. He issued a tweet and apologize to everybody and said, families are off limits. Let's not do this again. I shouldn't have done it. And then the truth was actually revealed sometime after that because as it turns out, Donald Trump, while he was in Hanoi, Vietnam, made a personal phone call to Matt Gaetz where he thanked Gaetz for threatening Michael Cohen. And according to a staff reporter for the Atlantic who overheard the phone call, this is what Matt Gaetz said. I was happy to do it for you. You just keep killing it. I was happy to do it for you. This is either Matt Gaetz admitting that I did this for you, bud. You know you're a good friend. I did it for you. Or it could mean I did the thing you wanted me to do. One of those things carries a prison sentence. Well, technically they both would carry a prison sentence. One of them just carries a longer prison sentence and also implicates Donald Trump in federal witness tampering. So if Matt Gaetz did in fact threatened Michael Cohen on Twitter per Donald Trump's order, then yes, that would be both of those men engaging in federal witness tampering, which carries a, you know, decent size prison sentence. Matt Gaetz is not going to walk away from this unscathed. At the very least, the Florida Bar Association is very likely to either reprimand him in some way or completely disbar him from the state of Florida from ever practicing law again. But here's the thing, Matt Gaetz has repeatedly and routinely put Donald Trump's wishes ahead of the wishes of his own constituents. And I happen to know that because I unfortunately am one of his constituents. But here is the flip side of that. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Monica Lewinksy Just Exposed Republican Hypocrisy With Just Three Words
 
05:27
Monica Lewinsky “won the internet” yesterday after her three-word response to a hypothetical scenario in which Ken Starr’s report had received the same treatment as the Mueller report. Monica’s response reminded the world that she was stigmatized for the events, betrayed by her friends, and will bear the mark of that affair forever, even though she was a victim. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.marketwatch.com/story/monica-lewinsky-wins-the-internet-with-fierce-3-word-take-on-muellers-report-2019-03-27 Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Yesterday man by the name of Orin Kerr who happens to be a law professor at the University of Southern California tweeted out the following. He said, imagine if the star report had been provided only to President Clinton's Attorney General Janet Reno who then read it privately and published a four page letter based on her private reading stating her conclusion that President Clinton committed no crimes. Now Professor Kerr here is obviously talking about the fact that we still don't have the Mueller report. The public doesn't. You've got all kinds of people out here making outrageous claims about it that either it completely exonerates the president in all democrats are dummies for thinking that it could have something in it. Then you have others on the other side who say, nope, this is a big ole conspiracy. The report definitely shows Trump committed all these crimes. Give us the full report and then you have those who say, you know what? How about you just release it? Everybody can read it and then we can all understand and be on the same page and move on in whatever direction we need to move on. That is the rational decision, but regardless, curves, pointing out the hypocrisy of Republicans for the Star report saying, hell yeah, get that out to the public right now. 436 pages or 453 pages, shoes me, get it out to the public Mueller report. Technically we don't even have a confirmation of how long it is and the Republicans, Mitch McConnell yesterday for the second time, blocked a resolution to call for the release of the report. All we know is that bar is going to work with Mueller, allegedly possibly Rosenstein to, uh, you know, come up with some snippets, the hand out to the public. We may never get the full thing at least until the Democrat finally retakes the White House and says, send it to the presses. We're getting this out there. Finally, God only knows when that's going to be. But nonetheless, right? We don't know what's in there. But we knew what was in that Clinton report. And so in response to Professor Kerr's tweet, okay, one woman chimed in with three simple words that absolutely one the internet and exposed Republican hypocrisy, that woman was Monica Lewinsky and her not quite safe for work response was if fucking only and Monica Lewinsky knows exactly what she is talking about and she knows exactly what kind of damage can be done by a single political party attempting to take down a president by any means necessary. The backstory of the Lewinsky scandal that I'm not sure a lot of people paying attention to politics today even know about or remember about Lewinsky can fight it. In Linda Tripp, her friend, fellow employee at the White House told her everything that happened. Trip then began secretly these conversations. Lewinsky didn't know about it. Lewinsky didn't want people to know about it. Then events, she eventually trip took it the Ken Starr. Then eventually from there the story leaked out and that's how Monica Lewinsky's name came out. But then after the investigation, the full report came out, Monica Lewinsky's name all over the news again, we knew exactly what happened. We knew who was involved and this woman who was just a victim really, she was a victim. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Federal Employees Sue Trump For Forcing Them To Work Without Pay
 
05:08
A group of federal employees are suing the Trump administration over the shutdown, arguing that the fact they still have to work but can’t be paid is a violation of the 13th Amendment that effectively abolished slavery in the United States. Previous lawsuits from federal workers during government shutdowns have been successful, and this lawsuit will likely see similar results. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses the suit and the possible outcomes.   Link – https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/01/14/compelled-work-without-pay-federal-employees-sue-trump-violating-th-amendment/?utm_term=.5fa9e8a72ebd Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Lawsuits are piling up right now against the Trump administration and the bosses who are currently forcing their employees to work without pay. Now, these are the furlough government workers who have been affected by this partial government shutdown, who are being coerced and forced to work their current jobs without pay. Now again, this does not cover all of the 800,000 furloughed workers. Some of them were immediately just sent home, deemed quote, non essential, but those essential folks, the people who the government can't function without. Those are the ones who are told. If you don't show up, you are fired and when you do show up, do not expect to get paid for the time that you're working. And according to the latest lawsuit, this is a clear violation of the 13th amendment which abolished slavery here in the United States. A group of federal workers is now suing the Trump administration and the people that they work for within the federal government for forcing them to work without pay, which they say in the lawsuit. The argument is that this amounts to involuntary servitude to their employer because again, their employers have issued warnings. If you don't come in, if you call out sick, don't ever come back because you're fired. So they are forcing these people to go into work. They know that these people will not be paid for the work that they are performing. And that is what spawned this particular lawsuit so far. This one is the only lawsuit to invoke the 13th amendment argument. And to be honest, that's going to be a very difficult one to prove. As the Supreme Court back in 1988 actually ruled that forcing a mentally ill people in the United States to work without pay, uh, did not violate the 13th amendment even though the people were threatened with if you work, either you work without pay or we put you in a mental institution because you're mentally ill, that somehow didn't violate the 13th amendment. So these workers have a very tall uphill battle ahead of them, um, that they likely may not win at this case. However, there are plenty of other law suits right now that are pretty much 100 percent going to be successful brought by furloughed federal workers who are working without pay. Obviously this does violate wage and hour laws here in the United States. It's happened during every other government shutdown and pretty much every other time the furloughed workers who worked without pay have been successful, in fact so successful that the government actually has a fund set up that is designed to pay out these lawsuits brought by furloughed federal workers because they know they're going to lose and they want to have this pot of money ready to go when the lawsuits inevitably come. But this one, however, about the 13th amendment is special. Again, the only one to invoke invoke the 13th amendment, but also because if it's successful, this would effectively ban any furloughed worker essential or not essential from being able to work during a government shutdown, which means again, if this lawsuit were to be successful, the next time the government shuts down.

Signs Of Trump’s Dementia Are Clear As Day, Psychologist Warns
 
05:24
Another prominent psychologist has come forward to warn the public about the degenerative state of Donald Trump’s brain. This time it is Dr. John Gartner who believes that the recent actions of the President and his continuously slurring speech patterns are evidence of a severe problem, possibly early dementia or even Alzheimer’s, and that a full comprehensive exam should be done to get to the truth. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/04/09/does-donald-trump-have-dementia-we-need-know-psychologist-column/3404007002/ Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Well folks, another day and another psychologist warning us that Donald Trump is suffering from some form of mental degeneration. We have psychologist John Gardner who is a former assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He's now just a psychologist, but Dr. Gardner tells us in a new op-ed from USA Today, and I encourage everybody to read it, follow the link in the description of the video here, but nonetheless, he tells us that the red flags for Donald Trump's mental stability are waving wildly, is what he says. You don't even have to be a doctor to recognize what's happening with the president. Now, this hot bed is not just an attack saying, oh, Donald Trump's nuts. He's crazy. No, this is actually a more nuanced look into what's happening with the president using his own behavior as examples. Here's one thing he points out that you know recently when he said Tim Apple instead of a Tim Cook, when he confused Paradise, California and call it pleasure California, things like that. Those are gaps for the most part, but there's other gaps that the president commits that are actually symptoms. Case in point recently when he said that his father was from Germany, he said it multiple times and that single interview, that's not a gaff. That is a symptom. When he kept trying to say the word origins and said oranges and it kind of kind of stopped himself and he said the oranges, the orange is of it, that that was one of the biggest indicators because you could tell when you watch that clip, and this is what Gardner talks about here, you could tell he knew it was wrong, but for the life of him, his brain couldn't get that correct word. That's why he kind of paused and then then tried to say it again but failed to do so. That's not an attack on the president that that is what happened there and that's what's so different about this piece by Gardner is that it's not looking to make fun of him or insult him or tell us he's an idiot. It's looking at it from a purely diagnostic point of view. Those are symptoms, symptoms of dementia, symptoms of Alzheimer's, but they are symptoms and that is actually what psychologists use to determine how far along someone is. Now we do know when Donald Trump underwent his uh, health assessment from Dr Ronnie Jackson, uh, according to, to garner here, they gave him the Montreal cognitive assessment and Donald Trump passed. Do you know what that test involves? He has to identify a camel, a clock, and recite three numbers backwards. That's it. If you pass that, you do not have full blown dementia. So Trump, at the time, this was 2008, did not have full blown dementia because he knew what a camel was and he knew what a clock look like, what's been over a year. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

With the Republicans failing to even bring their disastrous Obamacare replacement legislation to a vote, Paul Ryan was effectively silenced on one of the only issues he’s discussed for the last seven years.  This is bad news for Ryan’s future and even worse news for average Republicans.  But Progressives are already looking to be in great shape headed into the 2018 midterms, and they can capitalize on the GOP’s failures.

FBI Investigating Potential Bribery Of Investigator Who Let Ivanka & Don Jr Escape Prosecution
 
05:21
★ Download Newsvoice for free: https://newsvoice.com/ROF Let’s fix the news! The FBI has now gotten involved in a scheme run by the Trump family where they intentionally lied to investors about properties that they owned. According to reports, the Manhattan District Attorney was ready to file charges against Donald Trump, Jr. and Ivanka Trump, but the head ofv their division decided to let them off without so much as a warning. Bribery was likely involved, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.alternet.org/fbi-investigating-whether-manhattan-da-who-refused-prosecute-ivanka-and-trump-jr-took-bribes-report Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Here's what's happened here. We had Cy Vance, who was a democrat, who was one of the attorneys in that New York, Manhattan office and if that name sounds familiar it's because we've talked about him in the past because he's the guy who took a bunch of money from Harvey Weinstein's lawyer and then dropped the investigations into Harvey Weinstein. Well according to this new FBI investigation, they're pretty confident that Cy Vance did the exact same thing with Ivanka and Donald Jr. You see Don Jr. and Ivanka were being investigated for potential fraud made on behalf of their business to investors specifically relating to statements that Ivanka and Don Jr. made to investors. They were telling investors that some of the units that they owned had sold more units than they had or that they'd gone out and just sold 100 units when, in fact, they only sold one or zero. And by telling investors that these units were selling like crazy in these buildings that they owned, it incentivized investors to come forward and put more money into the projects. That is criminal fraud. And, depending on what the investigation found, there could also be some conspiracy to commit fraud in there as well. Prosecutors in New York presented all this evidence to Cy Vance and told him, "We absolutely need to prosecute this", but then Cy Vance met with Marc Kasowitz, one of the attorneys for the Trump family and the Trump organization, he got tens of thousands of dollars in donations from Kasowitz and then Cy Vance decided, "You know what, I'm going to go against the recommendation of all my prosecutors and investigators and I'm just going to bury this and we're not going to do anything about it." After he decided to not go forward and prosecute, Kasowitz made another donation, I think, it was $32,000 was the second donation he made to Cy Vance. The first one was $25,000. So, $57,000 just to bury a potential prosecution of Ivanka and Donald Trump, Jr. for fraud. Now Cy Vance is actually the target of this latest FBI investigation, they're also investigation whether or not he took bribes to end the Harvey Weinstein thing but this is a pretty clear cut case of bribery. He got money from Kasowitz, he dropped the case, then he got more money from Kasowitz. Yeah, pretty hard to argue that that's not bribery. Cy Vance obviously the kind of guy that's probably going to end up in prison and that's exactly where he belongs. And if something like that happens, then guess what folks, those prosecutions that those investigators and prosecutors in that Manhattan office wanted to do in the first place, those are going to happen after Cy Vance is put away. So, Ivanka, Don Jr. may think things are all well and good right now, but the walls are closing in on them. And the best part about it is that they're closing in on them at the state level, which means no matter what happens, Daddy won't be able to pardon them if they get convicted.

After CPAC Multiple Conservative Pundits Admit Republican Party Is Dead
 
04:13
Several conservative commentators and GOP analysts have come forward following Donald Trump’s address at CPAC admitting that the Republican Party is dead and that all that remains is a cult of Trump. This is something we’ve been saying for a long time, but now that those within the Party are willing to admit it, it really means that the writing is on the wall.

For a very long time. We've been talking about the fact that the Republican Party, as we once knew it, is completely dead and in its place there is simply a cult of Donald Trump and what was really refreshing to hear over the last few days is that we're not the only people who think that in fact, plenty of prominent Republicans also happened to agree with that on CNN recently, conservative commentator S.E. Cupp said that Donald Trump has created a colt. He is killed the Republican Party and they have now become a cult of Donald Trump because nobody on the republican side is willing to even consider the fact that Donald Trump may have committed some crimes. Cup was referring to Michael Cohen's testimony earlier last week where he basically implicated Donald Trump and quite a few crimes. I think the count is actually up to 14 different crimes that Michael Cohen implicated Donald Trump and last week during his testimony, and S.E. Cupp is all is just saying, listen, we have to at least consider the fact that this guy might be a criminal, but too many Republicans are refusing to even think that that could be a possibility, at least publicly. You know, none of them are willing to go out there and say, you know what, Michael Cohen, Yay, lied to us in the past, but he made some good points. He had the documents, he had the receipts. You know, those are kind of hard to overlook and, and bank records, if you falsify those, that's also pretty easy to verify. So they actually by now could have verified or not verified those things to find out if Cohen was telling the truth about that. And then we'd know for certain, but they haven't even gone that far. And it goes even deeper than just se cup. We had a republican strategists, Rick Tyler, appear on MSNBC following Donald Trump's speech at CPAC this week, which was a very long, very rambling, incoherent mess where he started by coming out and hugging the American flag, which is sadly is not the first time he's done that, by the way. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Internet DESTROYS Tomi Lahren After She Picks A Fight With Michelle Obama

Tomi Lahren thought it would be a good idea to attack Michelle Obama over a recent speech where Mrs. Obama advised people to vote for what they believe in. Lahren stated that Obama needs to “sit down” and that her husband, Barack Obama, doesn’t measure up to Trump on any level. The internet wasn’t having it, and Lahren got smacked down hard for her ridiculous comments.

Earlier this week, Tomi found herself getting hammered on Twitter after she decided to go after Michelle Obama, after Michelle Obama had the audacity to give a speech where she talked to young people about the importance of voting. My god. Can you imagine a more controversial topic to discuss with young people in the United States? The importance of them voting? Well, Tomi Lahren wouldn't have it. She was absolutely furious that this former First Lady was out there telling kids, "Hey, you should probably go vote." Apparently that's what triggers the blonde little Tomi. Here's what she Tweeted. "Michelle Obama said we had a great president. By what measure? Not in economic growth. Not in border enforcement. Not in strength on the world stage. Sit down, Michelle." "Sit down, Michelle." "Sit down, Michelle." I'm struggling to come up with words at the moment, because I'm actually so friggin' pissed off having to read that garbage that this woman who does have a national audience said on Twitter. Not in economic growth? Really, Tomi? Are you that dumb? Were you not paying attention to the last eight years, when we were pulled out of a recession and went into one of the longest streaks of economic growth in the US history, a streak that actually does continue to this day? You're willing to give Trump all the credit for it, but you're not willing to actually look further back on all those graphs that show that when Obama took office, everything started going up. Did you know that monthly job creation on average was higher during the Obama Administration than it's been during the Trump Administration? I'm sure you didn't. Were you aware that, and this isn't a good thing for Obama, but it's a thing that happened, that Obama was also locking up migrant children, they were abusing them, detaining them, extending the Flores settlement to keep them locked away longer than legally possible? Yeah, Obama was actually pretty strict on border enforcement as well, but you don't care about facts. You're trying desperately to remain relevant in an overcrowded right-wing hate talker field that is getting increasingly hard for any one person to emerge as the leader. That's what happens, and I've mentioned that before, because I've seen it before. I've been in this business long enough to watch what happens over there on the right. About 14 years ago, there was a little competition, right? You had Coulter, you had Malkin, you had Ingraham. You had a couple other right-wing hate talkers, all trying to vie to be the loudest voice in that hate movement. Ultimately, they all kind of faded away. They still go on Fox News, but nobody pays attention to them anymore. Same thing's happening today. You got Tomi Lahren, you have Ben Shapiro, Dave Rubin, Charlie Kirk. All of these people trying to say the dumbest, craziest things possible to get the attention of that particular day, because that's about how long it lasts. People like Tomi Lahren know that their career has a shelf life, and it is a very short one at that. This girl, woman, whatever, has about two-three more years before she finally goes down the tube, and another more attractive right-wing hate talker emerges to kick her out of her throne, and forever cast her into obscurity. Mark my words, that day is coming, and it's coming a lot sooner than Tomi thinks.

04:52
🌞 Need someone to talk to? BetterHelp is there whenever you need them - https://www.betterhelp.com/ringoffire/ Fordham College has confirmed one of the lesser charges leveled at the Trump administration by Michael Cohen during his testimony by saying that they were contacted by members of the Trump campaign warning them against releasing his college transcripts, grades, or standardized test scores. The question now is how bad were these scores if Trump was willing to launch a legal battle to protect them. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2019/02/fordham-confirms-cohen-testimony-trump-campaign-threatened-legal-action-school-released-records/ Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

One of the weirder things that Michael Cohen said during his testimony on Wednesday was that when Donald Trump first decided he was going to run for president, he had members of his staff call, his former college, has former high school basically anywhere he'd ever attended academically and threatened them with legal action. If any of them ever released his transcripts, his grades, or a standardized test scores to the media or to the public. You tell anybody what a crappy student I was and I'm going to sue you into oblivion. That was a weird claim. The Michael Cohen made you know what really wasn't relevant to anything but he was, he was telling us that to show us just how secretive and sneaky and deceitful Donald Trump truly is and you did a good job of painting the picture. But here's the thing, Michael Cohen, as Republican's told us all day long is a liar. How can we believe anything? He says, well, Luckily Fordham University, we're Donald Trump attended for two years, came out immediately and said, Michael Cohen is telling the truth. We got the phone call and then we got a letter warning us that if we ever tell anyone about Donald Trump's grades, we're going to be sued. So that's been confirmed. We know now that Michael Cohen, at least on that particular issue, was telling the truth, but that's not really the issue. Michael Cohen had no reason to lie yesterday. He's not going to get a lighter sentence. He's already been sentenced. He has nothing left to lose, but Donald Trump has plenty to lose and in fact he's had plenty to lose since day one since day one of the campaign. And that's why he called. I mean, he called his fricking high school. It said, don't you dare release my transcripts. This guy must have been one of the worst students imaginable. His sat scores, which he's also threatened people to not release, must have been, I mean God probably in the double digits, not even the triple digits, just the doubles. I don't even know if this man would have been able to get his name right on there. And that's why he doesn't want us to see what's in these. Because if we see them, if we learn that he is in fact not a very stable genius, then that not only does that crumble the facade that he's built as president, it crumbles the entire facade of the Trump organization itself. That whole organization that he built off money his daddy gave him is built around the fact that Donald Trump is the greatest human being to ever live. That is what Trump wants to pour portray to everybody in the world that he's the greatest ever. Nobody's ever as great as him. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Trump Voter Says She’s “Ashamed” Of Her Vote After Daughter-in-Law Gets Deported
 
02:53
A Trump supporter by the name of Shirley Stegall is now willing to admit that she is “ashamed” of not only voting for Donald Trump, but that he has made her ashamed of her country. The reason for her sudden change of heart? The fact that her daughter-in-law, who happened to be an undocumented immigrant, was recently deported. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/07/im-ashamed-trump-voter-admits-got-wrong-ice-deports-daughter-law/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

But this weeks is a little bit different than ones we've seen in the past. The story of Lettie Stigall is one that not most people in this country obviously know about. Lettie Stigall was an undocumented immigrant here in the United States who was married to a US citizen. Lettie was deported not that long ago and is not allowed back in the United States at least for the time being. Her and her husband also had a 17 year old daughter who is a US citizen. Well as it turns out, Lettie's mother-in-law, Shirley Stigall actually voted for and supported Donald Trump in 2016. But now according to a very lengthy article in the Associated Press, Shirley says that not only is she ashamed of her vote, but she is also ashamed of her country for the first time in her life. And this isn't meant to say welcome to the other side, thanks for finally opening your eyes. This is a real world story about how many consequences can come from something as simple as your vote. That's the real problem here. The people who supported Donald Trump don't even understand how much they're screwing over themselves, screwing over their families, screwing over their friends and everyone else in their lives. Why? All because they were motivated to vote for a con man because they were easily conned. This woman, Shirley Stigall, saw first hand what's happens when you put a racist in the Oval Office as she watched her daughter in law, the mother of her granddaughter, get packed up and shipped to another country possibly to never be seen again. Now they do video chat but whether or not they'll ever be able to reunite as an actual family remains unclear at this point. And this is not a unique story. This is happening all over the country right now. We also have actual US citizens, people who went through the naturalization process, are currently being threatened of being stripped of their citizenship and deported back to where they came from. That's a new program that this administration is working on. So yeah we have a very real problem here in the United States. And apparently the administration isn't just satisfied enough deporting undocumented immigrants because now they're actually going after legal US citizens. And every Trump voter in this country needs to understand that they are responsible for this.

Trump’s Economy: Job Layoffs Surge To Highest Level In A Decade
 
06:13
We keep hearing all this great news about job creation and see those monthly reports of a few hundred thousand jobs being created, but what we don’t hear about is the other side of that coin – Layoffs in this country have hit a ten-year high, meaning more people are losing their jobs today than at the height of the recession. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening and why the administration keeps trying to paint a picture that isn’t based in reality.   Link – https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/04/job-layoffs-surge-35percent-to-highest-level-to-start-a-year-in-a-decade.html Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Well today started out with some pretty good news, right? They announced the job numbers from March and we gained 196,000 new jobs here in the United States. Continuing a trend that's been going on for many years, mostly through the Obama administration, but it has carried over of couple hundred thousand jobs each month being created here in the United States. And that's a really good thing if you're the kind of person that only looks at half the statistics because the bureau of Labor statistics isn't out there telling us that, yeah, we created a lot of jobs, but we lost so many. It's crazy. But they shouldn't be telling us that because that is also what is happening. In fact, in the first quarter of 2019 we actually lost more jobs than we have in the past decade. In fact, the last time we lost as many jobs in a single quarter as we did, the first quarter of 2019 happened to be a quarter in the year 2009 when the United States was still in a recession. So for the first three months of 2019 we have lost close to 200,000 jobs. Almost 200,000 people have been laid off. That is a more than 35% increase. Then the same period last year. So layoffs have increased in the last 12 months by 35% but where are the big reports on those numbers? Right? All we're seeing every single month is how many jobs we created, but we're not paying attention to the other half of the number. And that's what bugs me. And to be honest, this is not just a Trump administration thing. This is what all administrations do. Because typically jobs get created in a month, may not always be as high as you want, but sure, that's always something positive you can throw out there and say we created 20,000 new jobs or 50 or a hundred or 300,000 new jobs. And as long as you leave it at that and you're going to seem like you're doing great on the economy, but you're really not, and let's make no mistake, this is Trump's economy. Now he is the president. He is overseeing policy that does directly affect the U.S. economy and job creation. And in fact, many economists say that it is his policies that are driving this massive drop in jobs in the United States. Yes, the unemployment rate remains unchanged, but good, decent jobs, those aren't being created. Those are being lost here in the U.S. I spent quite a bit of time yesterday going over the last few months of labor stats from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Uh, if you ever have, the chance is one of the most boring things you could ever do. But I do think people need to go through and see where these jobs are being created. Because I answers, you know, when we see these big grand numbers, 200,000 jobs almost in March. Yeah. But where, because that matters. And that's not typically what we're told. So when you look at it and to see that, oh, 12,000 of those jobs, you know, more than 10% on any given month, those are retail jobs. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Trump’s Attacks On Mueller Make The President Look Weak, Scared, And Crazy
 
04:28
Donald Trump began his Friday morning with a series of unhinged attacks on Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. These attacks are becoming repetitive and predictable, and the show that the President is freaking out as the walls continue to close in. But the real question is whether or not these attacks are effective enough to sway the publics’ view, and Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses that possibility.   Link – https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-attacks-mueller-team-conflicts-of-interest-as-manafort-cohen-filings-loom Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

I'm going to start by asking a really weird question here. You ever tried to obey the cat? If you haven't? I. I don't recommend it at all, but let me tell you what happens when you try to give a cat a bath. First and foremost, most cats, most average house cats do not like the thought of water. They do not like being approached by a big giant human being trying to snatch them either. So when you have a cat and you're in the bathroom with the cat and you got the tub ready to go, they will try to run. They will try to flee, but eventually being in such a confined area, they find out they have nowhere to go, so they backed themselves into a corner, hissing, scratching, clawing, freaking out because they see the inevitable that is about to happen. Eventually you get them in the tub regardless. They can hiss and scratch and bite all they want, but it still happened. That scenario is what we're seeing play itself out with Donald Trump's tweets this week. On Friday morning, the president opened his day by tweeting out these asinine, absurd, unhinged attacks on this special prosecutor. None of these attacks, by the way, backed up by any evidence whatsoever. He tweeted out is used well, witch hunt in all caps, followed by an exclamation point or to talk about all the conflicts of interests from Robert Mueller, talked about the fact that they're not investigating Hillary Clinton. All of these attacks that made Donald Trump like a backed up cat in a corner, panicked, freaked out, scared, and most importantly week, anyone who looks at Donald trump and thinks, that's a strong man, that is a, that is a man I like, and as a manly man, go read his tweets. Seriously. These are the tweets of a panicked, scared, weak child who sees the walls closing him or around him. He knows what's happening. He knows bad things are coming. He knows that there is nothing he can do to stop it, even if he were to fire Robert Mueller. Mueller is covered his bases very well. Mueller, who by the way, is a Republican. He is not conflicted. Why is he not investigating Hillary? Because he wasn't given the task of investigating. Hillary Republicans Investigated Hillary for years and years and years and years, and I'm not even a fan of hers, but I know that she didn't break any laws. Give it a rest. You are that backed up, freaked out cat in a corner. You're terrified. You're hissing, you're scratching your biting, but none of those can do any damage and none of them are going to stop the inevitable from happening. So my message to conservatives out there who look at Donald trump as a good leader and a strong human being, again, read his tweets. Are these the tweets? Have a strong man. Are these the tweets? Have a confident man or are these the tweets of a petulant, whiny narcissist who has been able to get away with every single thing he's wanted to get away with in his entire life until now? Suddenly he's having to face the consequences, suddenlies having to be investigated and suddenly he could lose it all. The only question that remains is will these attacks on the special prosecutor resonate with the public among dunks? Donald Trump's base probably depends on how they view them. If they view them as the tweets have a weak man terrified about his own future, then they could lose support. After all, studies have shown that Donald Trump did appeal more to men who are insecure in their manhood and thought Donald trump was the vision of what a dude is supposed to be.

Tariff Man Strikes Again! Trump Prepares $11 Billion In Tariffs On European Goods
 
04:07
Donald Trump famously declared himself a “Tariff Man” not long ago, and he’s doing his best to live up to that title. This week, the President announced that he is preparing $11 billion in new tariffs on goods from European countries, probably because his other tariffs on China have worked so well (sarcasm.) The man is wrecking the economy and he doesn’t care a bit because it doesn’t effect his finances, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://thehill.com/policy/finance/437975-trump-announces-move-to-impose-11b-of-tariffs-on-eu-goods Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Not that long ago, Donald Trump declared himself the worst superhero of our all time a tariff man. He said on Twitter, I am a tariff man, and he's living up to his name, and that's not good for people here in the United States. It was announced this week by Trump himself on Twitter, of course, that he was going to be imposing $11 billion in tariffs on goods coming into the United States from the European Union. Now, the reason he did this according to him is because the World Trade Organization came out recently and said that some of the subsidies that a European countries are giving to, uh, Airbus are unfair. You know, you're given too much money in subsidies to this one aviation company. That's not fair. It hurts US companies who would like to come over here and sell planes. You got to stop it. So they actually did come out and they did stop it. But Trump, I guess just now found out that this was happening. And he said, Oh, hell Nah, I'm putting $11 billion in tariffs on your goods. Let's see how you like it. Giving subsidies to one aircraft company instead of to ours. But here's the thing. Um, he's not just putting tariffs on aviation products coming from the European Union to the United States. He took a little further. You've got things like cheese, bicycles, kitchen knives, paint brushes. Basically anything that Donald Trump who has the sole authority to do these tariffs, anything that he thinks is like stereotypical European cheese, bicycles, kitchen knives, paint brushes. If it's stereotypical European, Donald Trump just put a tariff on it. I'm surprised he did not add powdered wigs and pantaloons to that list, but it's still young. Maybe he's going to add those later. But here's the thing. Europe's not the one paying this, and we've talked about this before and economists have been talking about this and everybody's trying to explain it to Trump. Europe doesn't pay it. China doesn't pay the tariff that you've put on them. We pay it the, the country, the citizens here that people who buy this stuff, all it does is increase the price for us. We're the ones getting screwed on this deal. But what's really shocking is that his trade war with China has been a complete and total failure. It has screwed over the U s economy. It has cause businesses to already closed their doors. We now have a eight year high in bankruptcies for American farmers because of the trade wars. And this Moron looks out there, sees all the damage he calls and he says, you know what, tariff man needs to put some tariffs on Europe too, because why the hell not? And in his mind it is a why. Hell not kind of decision because his goods and services aren't affected. Just like they weren't affected by any of the Chinese goods because he made sure that it didn't affect clothing or any kind of textile products like that. Because if he did that would directly affect his bottom line. He would lose money on it. So he essentially exempted himself. He exempted his daughter, Ivanka from all the tariffs and this new list of things he's putting tariffs on from Europe. He doesn't make those with his companies. He's not relying upon any of those things. So he's fine. Trump will always be just fine. It's just everyone else in the country that suffers from is horrible decisions and that's not an accident. That's how he's designed it. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Roy Moore Picked A Fight With Jimmy Kimmel, And He Lost BIG TIME

Embattled Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore decided to pick a fight with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter, and it ended just as you would expect.

Germans Want Trump’s Ambassador Kicked Out Of Their Country
 
03:08
Politicians in Germany are wanting to remove Donald Trump’s ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, after he publicly came out and said that part of his job was to promote the conservative party in Germany. Not only are ambassadors not allowed to get involved in politics in the countries that they are sent to, but this is not Grenell’s first time meddling in the business of Germans, and now they want him gone.

Now as you'll recall, not that long ago, in fact it was actually less than 24 hours after the guy accepted the position of German ambassador, he tweeted out that the German people, German businesses need to immediately stop doing any kind of business with Iran because the US pulled out of the deal so everybody else needs to do what the US did. It pissed off a lot of people in Germany. But this week, Grenell once again managed to show that, one, he's completely incompetent and bad as his job, but, two, that he's completely insensitive as to the workings of German politics and businesses. Because Grenell came out and said that it is his job as ambassador on behalf of Donald Trump to ensure that conservative policies and conservative politicians in Germany succeed while beating back liberalism. So now a whole lot of politicians in Germany as well as German citizens are calling for Richard Grenell to be expelled from the country. He's doing such a bad job and offending so many people that they essentially want to kick him out of Germany, send him back to the United States, and send a big message to Donald Trump that, one, you can't interfere with our politics, you jerk, and, two, you don't know what you're doing as president of the United States because that's what this all comes back to. Now, we have seen pretty crappy ambassadors being appointed by both Obama and Bush before him, but we have never seen the level of incompetence that we have seen from some of the people that Donald Trump has picked and Richard Grenell is exhibit A. He admitted to the German people that he wants to interfere with their politics. That he wants to make conservative politicians succeed while making liberal politicians fail. Germany has every right to expel him from their country at this point, and I believe that they should. They need to send a message to the president that you cannot send some unqualified, know-nothing ambassador over here with the expressed intent of trying to interfere with our politics. The United States wouldn't accept it if there was a German coming to the United States to do the same, so why should the German people accept the same coming from the United States? Donald Trump doesn't know how to be president. He's not smart enough, he's not competent enough, and he's not trustworthy enough. Now we're starting to see that his level of incompetence is alienating some of our biggest allies on the planet.

Republicans Panic As Voters Watch Their Tax Refunds Shrink

Republican politicians are panicking right now. As more and more Americans continue to file their taxes and then realize that, oh, I'm not getting a refund this year, or I owe more than I ever have in previous years. Now this has happened in nearly 10% of people who have already filed their taxes. Either the refund is smaller than it was in years past, or they owe more than they had in years past. But the bottom line is that these people understand that they're not actually getting those tax cuts, that Republican's promise them at the end of 2017. So Republicans now have gone on the defensive and we have people like Chuck Grassley out there right now telling us that, no, no, no, they got their tax cuts. It's just Democrats being dishonest about what's happening. And that's why you have these talking points that people aren't getting tax cuts. Uh, the Republican argument at this point is this. They say that they changed the withholding tables for the IRS. So you may be getting a smaller refund, but it's only because you finally paid the correct amount in taxes. And you didn't pay as much in taxes per paycheck last year cause we adjusted the withholding table. So your paychecks increased. And that's why you're not getting a refund to which a majority of American citizens said what a majority of people in this country reported that their paychecks did not change their federal withholding, their taxes did not change last year. And I emphasize that to show you how bad the Republicans are lying because Chuck Grassley and plenty of Republican strategists, other Republican politicians are literally trying to convince people that their paychecks increased because fewer taxes were being withheld. When those people can very easily look at their pay stub and say, you're, you're lying to me. You're lying to my face. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

It isn’t clear whether or not Cohen actually knows what all of the blacked out parts are, but he may be the best source for filling in at least some parts of it. However, it could all be a lesson in futility, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.alternet.org/2019/04/michael-cohens-lawyer-says-trumps-former-fixer-is-prepared-to-fill-in-the-bulk-of-ag-barrs-redacted-mueller-report/ Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Even before we got the very heavily redacted Mueller Report on Thursday, Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's former lawyer slash fixer had already told us that he is going to fill in the public on as much of those redacted portions of the Mueller report as humanly possible. Now, that announcement actually came Wednesday night from Michael Cohen's attorney, Lanny Davis, to which Michael Cohen also replied, uh, yeah, this is going to happen. In fact, he said, soon I will be ready to address the American people again. Tell it all and tell it myself. Now, this is really interesting because obviously if you've gone through the report or seen parts of it, yeah, there is a lot of redactions which runs contrary to what the media had told us the day before, which was, it's going to be lightly redacted. They're still making the mistake of trying to take Attorney General William Barr at his word, even though we've known for decades that this is a man that cannot be trusted. It was heavily redacted. Uh, it also though the redactions did tell us that there's other matters still ongoing, other investigations happening, so it ain't over. But here's what we do know, and this is stuff that Michael Cohen may be able to add too, because some of these parts were redacted after the initial statement, but I want to go through just a few of some of the biggest revelations of the Mueller report. First and foremost, Trump panicked when Robert Mueller was appointed, said, uh, he's "F'ed" this the end of his presidency. I think that's a pretty substantial statement considering the guy had only been in office for what, five months at that point, not even quite five months yet, and he already knew that because they special prosecutor was appointed, his presidency was done for you. Don't think that you're presidency's done for if you haven't done something wrong. Let's get that out of the way real quick. If you know you're innocent, you have nothing to worry about. Second thing is, Sarah Huckabee Sanders admitted that she had been lying to the public as part of her testimony when she had previously said publicly that many FBI agents were coming to this administration and saying, we don't have any faith in James Comey whatsoever. She admitted to the special prosecutor that she had absolutely nothing to base that on because nobody actually said it. A Mueller was not able to prosecute on obstruction because of the office of legal counsel's memo from back in the day that says don't indict a sitting president. Oh, it could interfere with the president's ability to do his job. And that is the only reason Mueller didn't bring the charges on obstruction of justice. And that is worth noting a, there were 10 instances that we know of from the unredacted portions of obstruction of justice. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Trump’s Tweets Keep Landing Him In Legal Trouble
 
04:07
Donald Trump’s lawyers are still trying to argue in court that the President has the right to block people on Twitter. But after a group of judges on the Second Circuit read through a list of Presidential proclamations that he made via his personal Twitter account, that argument is becoming harder to make. The President keeps getting himself in trouble over his tweets and clearly hasn’t learned from his past mistakes, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.courthousenews.com/trump-ever-tweeting-makes-curious-case-for-privacy/ Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Earlier this week, the Justice Department was in court to Defend Donald Trump's practice of blocking people from his at real Donald Trump Twitter account. And during their arguments, the panel of Second Circuit Judges Basically skewered the folks from the Justice Department defending the president. And they were able to do it not based on superior legal arguments, but because the lawyers at the justice department are so clueless that they don't even realize what Donald Trump is doing with his Twitter feed. See, these judges actually took turns on Tuesday reading out recent proclamations, presidential proclamations from Donald Trump's personal Twitter feed, including his recent proclamation about North Korea and the fact that we're not going to, uh, implement those sanctions that were just announced and his recognition, a recognition of Golan Heights in Israel as Israeli t a territory. They said these are presidential proclamations. These were first made on his personal Twitter account. And being the president of the United States, he cannot for big people in this country from being able to see them, the justice department lawyers really didn't have an answer for that. Nor did they have an answer when one of the judges said, okay, if he is in fact a private citizen on this Twitter feed, why is the Justice Department representing a private citizen? That's not your job. That's not your responsibility. That's not even something that you're allowed to do. So why are you here? The judge asked the Justice Department again to which they really didn't have a good answer for, but here's the thing. Donald Trump's Twitter feed continues to get him in legal trouble, and in the past, as we all know, a judge has said, no, you cannot block people from your Twitter feed. It's a violation of the first amendment because you are prohibiting people in this country from being able to see presidential proclamations, which you cannot do. You can't hide that from people. And when he chooses to use his personal Twitter feed as a means to make those proclamations, he can no longer block people. That's the ruling, at least from the lower court. The second circuit, as of right now, has not yet released their ruling, but they only spend about 45 minutes. Uh, on this particular case, most of which, as I pointed out, was used to mock the lawyers from the justice department for being so dangerously incompetent, competent, and delusional about what's actually in the president's Twitter feed. But here's the thing. We have seen on several different occasions, Donald Trump tweets things out that later get used against him in court, just like these tweets have, for example, um, 94% of the court cases for policies enacted by this Trump administration, 94% that have been challenged in court have lost. And more than a dozen of those have lost solely on the grounds of something Donald Trump tweeted out that directly contradicts or shows that there was no thought process going into why a new rule was made. Donald Trump's Twitter feed continues to be his downfall, yet he sees it as his biggest and greatest tool. The truth is that people use that Twitter feed against him on a regular basis in court, and more often than not, they win and he loses. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Nexium And Prilosec Causing Massive Health Problems, Including Kidney Failure - The Ring Of Fire
 
03:52
An estimated 15 million Americans are currently taking drugs like Nexium which work to control heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux. Unfortunately, those who turn to Nexium and other Proton-pump inhibitors will need to proceed much more cautiously as studies have confirmed that taking these drugs increase the chance of kidney problems – and even kidney failure – by as much as fifty percent. Proton-pump inhibitors are a class of drugs which include Nexium, Prilosec, and Prevacid which work by blocking the secretion of acid into the stomach. These extremely common medications are sold both by prescription and over-the-counter. The recent discovery of this increased risk of chronic kidney disease and even failure means that much more care must be taken in determining if a person should be popping the purple pill. America's Lawyer, Mike Papantonio, discusses this with Thom Hartmann.

Entire West Virginia Supreme Court Hit With Articles Of Impeachment
 
04:17
The state Supreme Court of West Virginia is facing impeachment – the ENTIRE court. The state legislature this week approved the articles of impeachment after a lengthy investigation revealed a major spending scandal among the justices, which included them spending $34,000 on a couch, in addition to other unnecessary renovations of their offices. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what this could mean for the future of that court system.   Link – https://www.alternet.org/west-virginia-impeaches-entire-supreme-court Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Last week the West Virginia House of Delegates approved 14 articles of impeachment against the sitting judges at the moment. And then Monday of this week, the house at large approved 11 of those 14 articles of impeachment. Now, this is significant. This is every single member on the West Virginia State Supreme Court of Appeals. This is a massive move. And what started all this is actually a spending scandal, that kind of embroiled everyone there on the Supreme Court. One of the things that they spent money on, they spent $34,000 on a couch. They also spend hundreds of thousands of dollars renovating their individual offices, using public vehicles for private travel. Wracking up all kinds of bills that they shouldn't be able to wrack up, which is why they're being impeached. And honestly, that's a good move. The makeup of the court as it stands right now, because one Justice has already resigned, is that there's two Democrats, one Republican, and one Republican leaning independent. So it's pretty much split two and two, the Chief Justice is a Democrat. But here's the thing, the solid Republican on that court is actually facing additional charges, could be look at actual criminal prosecution, not just impeachment, because he, and here it is, he faces federal prosecution for fraud, witness tampering, and false statements. And he's also accused of using a state contract in a moving company to steal priceless office furniture from state buildings for personal use, and billing state accounts for his book signing tour, which actually happened to be a book about government corruption in the state of West Virginia. So, while he's out promoting a book about corruption in West Virginia, he's also engaging in corruption in West Virginia to promote his book. I mean that is how disgusting this entire court system in the state of West Virginia apparently had become, at least at the State Supreme Court level. And here's the sickening part to me though. In addition to the spending scandals, the witness tampering, the fraud, the false statements, all of that, is that there's actually some Democrats out here who are furious that this has happened. The Daily Coast is mad because they're saying, "Oh, this is just the Republicans and the legislature, they're trying to take back over the court. You could tell that from the timing of this." An investigation happened, it founds massive wrongdoing amongst all members of the Supreme Court, not just the Democrats, but the Republicans too. Everybody was engaging in unethical, potentially illegal behavior. So, I'm sorry that that angers you, that you think this is a Republican power grab, but regardless of political party, corruption needs to be rooted out of all levels of government. I mean I'm tired of hearing Democrats, "You can't say this, because that's a Democrat and we need them." Oh, we can't lose this Supreme Court that goes right 90% of the time anyway, because they're Democrats. Listen, corruption knows no party, right? If somebody is corrupt as hell, and doing things that are potentially illegal, it doesn't matter if there's a D, and R, and I, a G, or an L next to their name, they need to go. That's how this government, that's how this country is supposed to work. So, don't whine to me that an already right leaning state Supreme Court that rules with corporations and fossil fuel interests most of the time could be remade into being even more conservative. If you're already conservative, you're not going to get more conservative than that when it's a black and white issue such as the law.

Watch Rudy Giuliani FREAK OUT On CNN When Busted Lying “This is Really UNFAIR!”
 
03:18
CNN’s Chris Cuomo decided to use Rudy Giuliani’s own words against him by showing an old clip of Giuliani saying that the President must appear if he gets subpoenaed. Giuliani promptly freaked out on the air, saying that airing clips of him from the past was “really unfair.” Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/05/unfair-rudy-giuliani-explodes-cnns-cuomo-plays-clip-saying-presidents-must-obey-subpoenas/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

On Friday morning, he made the decision to go on Chris Cuomo's show, where he insisted that you cannot subpoena a president, a sitting president. Well, unfortunately, for Giuliani, Chris Cuomo and the team at CNN was actually well-aware of comments that Giuliani had made on Charlie Rose's show in the past. When confronted with those previous comments that contradict his current comments, Giuliani absolutely flipped out. Take a look. You got to comply. You got to go. You can't. You can't. I never heard of the subpoena for the president's person. Well you said exactly that. No, no. He went on to say- Chris, let's distinguish between a subpoena for documents ... that takes the president out of the Oval Office, and puts him in front of a grand jury or hearing. Can't do it. Can't do the second. You can do the first. President- But you never made that distinction before. Well I never, never, never occurred to me they would try to subpoena the president. That's exactly what was going on in 1998, but people are going to say I'm making this up. And they list it, and they list it, and they list- Here's Charlie Rose with you in the interview and you tell me what you meant. Oh, come on. What, you don't want to hear it? It's not even relevant. If the president is asked to testify, subpoenad to testify before a grand jury- That's really unfair. What you're doing right now is extremely unfair. No. I'm giving you a chance to explain it. And it says [crosstalk 00:01:24]. [crosstalk 00:01:24] the reason people don't come on this show. Oh stop. But with all that- Not going to do it. You got to do it. I mean you don't have a choice. That promoting of Avenatti for ambulance chasing. What happens if Robert Mueller subpoenas the president? What does that have to do with this? Because they're all trying to bring Trump into that, and he's not involved in it, Chris. Look- So in the mind of a guy like Rudy Giuliani, showing a clip of things you had said in the past is unfair. Using your own legal advice or opinions against you is somehow wrong? Here's what's funny about the whole clip, though. When you watch it, originally you see that Giuliani is still talking as they're showing the old clip, but there's no audio coming from him. What I'm assuming is that the producers decided to pot-down his mic so that they could just see his facial reactions when he hears what he had said, which contradicts what he was currently trying to say. But when they saw that he was absolutely freaking out, somebody in that control room made the decision to turn his mic back on so that everybody watching could see Giuliani freaking out and claiming that his past statements, this video of him from 20 years ago, was somehow unfair. Now, you know what's unfair, Giuliani? You going out there in the media and lying to everyone. You've been doing it all week long. Hell, you've been doing it for decades, but you've really hit a new low in this past week with all of the false statements that you are out there saying to the media. I guarantee you after this, and Giuliani hinted at it himself, he's probably not going to come back on CNN. Giuliani's going to stick to the more friendly waters of FOX News, where they won't confront him about his lies. They're not going to show old clips of him proving himself wrong. They're just going to sit there with a smile, and let Giuliani says whatever he wants to to defend the President.

Conservatives FREAK OUT As Florida Vote Heads Towards Recount
 
05:40
Giving us further evidence that every vote matters, several important races in Florida are headed towards an automatic recount due to the closeness of those races. Those include the governor’s race where Democrat Andrew Gillum is still closing the gap between Republican Ron DeSantis, and the Senate race with Bill Nelson slightly trailing Republican Rick Scott. And, as predicted, conservatives a freaking out, including Sean Hannity and Republican Senator Marco Rubio. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link - https://twitter.com/marcorubio/status/1060734881733451776 Link - http://www.tampabay.com/florida-politics/buzz/2018/11/08/recount-recount-recount-heres-where-florida-is-headed/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Ron DeSantis, the Republican who allegedly won the governor's seat along with Republican Rick Scott, who allegedly unseated Democrat Bill Nelson for the Senate there, those races are both headed for an automatic recount, because as the last few votes have come in, and we're actually still waiting on some for Broward County, as those last few votes came in, they closed the gap enough to trigger an automatic recount for those particular races, as well as another race in Florida for agriculture, but the two big ones obviously the governor's house and the Senate race. Those are massive, massive victories if Democrats are able to pull them off with these recounts. Obviously, Republicans are taking this as well as you would expect Republicans to take it, considering the fact that they stand to lose a Senate seat and a governor's seat in one of the most important swing states in this country. This is huge news. This is great news, even though Florida really has a bad history with recounts, and considering that everything is once again hinging on Broward County down there, it's difficult to get optimistic about it, but at the same time, good things could still happen, and here's why. First and foremost, there were plenty of ballots, not only outstanding still to be counted right now that actually could close the gap in both of those races, but there were actually plenty of ballots that for some reason, even though they had the name recognition and were huge offices, there allegedly weren't votes cast for the Senate seat. Some of them didn't have votes cast for the governor's seat, and while it is entirely possible that people just decided not to vote for those particular races, the idea of tens of thousands of people in one county not voting for one of those races is a little suspicious, so yes, the recount is a good thing because we're going to find a lot of votes that weren't originally counted by the vote scanners. Again, Republicans are freaking out. Donald Trump has joined in their freak out, and he tweeted out the following this morning. He said, "Law enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with election fraud in Broward and Palm Beach. Florida voted for Rick Scott." It's actually starting to appear like they didn't vote for Rick Scott, Mr. Trump. Marco Rubio tweeted out the following, "Every vote legally cast should be counted. That's the law. Have no problem with recounts. That's the law, but last early votes were cast Sunday and had to be submitted by Tuesday evening. That the law too. That the law too. Yet 48 hours after deadline, Broward County is only county still counting them." In addition to having the word count in a sentence more than I've ever had to read before, Marco Rubio's freaking out, because he had already tweeted out his congratulations to Rick Scott, "Looking forward to my new colleague. Super great bud time."

Bad News For Trump – His Buddies Say They Will Cooperate With Investigations
 
03:51
When the Democrats sent out their letters requesting documents and other evidence from Trump’s associates earlier this week, it seemed like a fantasy to think any of these people would cooperate without subpoenas and legal fights. But as it turns out, a lot of them are more than willing to hand over everything they have on the President, including his former Press Secretary Sean Spicer and the chairman of his inaugural committee Tom Barrack. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what this means.   Link – https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/05/trump-friend-tom-barrack-plans-to-cooperate-with-house-judiciary-committee.html Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

You know earlier this week when a Democrats announced that they were issuing requests for documents from 81 Trump allies and associates and organizations. I thought, that's good. We need some accountability. I'm glad they're doing these investigations. I have very low hopes for impeachment, but at least we could get the truth on a lot of this, but I also thought at the time, nobody's going to willingly hand over these documents or cooperate with you. Hey, these are Trump's buddies, his friends, his pals as business associates, his businesses themselves. They would have to be crazy to turn over these documents and willingly cooperate and I had predicted that a lot of lengthy legal battles were going to result in this. Luckily, apparently I was wrong because there have been a handful of people who got these document requests who have now said, hell yeah, I'll cooperate. What do you want? Let me know. I've got it all in storage. I'll be more than happy to hand it over to you. Two of the big ones who are kind of at the center of a lot of it, even if they don't seem like they are, is Tom Barak, who was a good personal friend of Donald Trump. He also chaired the president's inaugural committee, which is subject of a massive investigation right now in case you weren't aware of that. He said, yeah, I'll cooperate what you want. The other person is Sean Spicer, the former press secretary, and as we've been told in the past, Sean Spicer kept notes of everything. A lot of it to Trump's dismay, he didn't like that. He like everything being written down, but Sean Spicer did, and now Sean Spicer says, yeah, you want what I've got have added. I had nothing to lose. Right? I can't even find a job. Nobody wants to hire me because I'm pretty much really discredited, but I'll give you all the documents you want. This is bad news for Donald Trump. And the fact that these people, I, this all happened within 24 hours by the way of these document requests going out, the fact that they were so willing to immediately say, heck yeah, and let me know what you want. I'll make it happen. That is going to really force other folks to kind of do the same thing. Now obviously there's people who were on that a document list that are not going to cooperate. Eric Trump, Donald Trump, Jr. Ivanka, Eric Prince from black water who is actually also a part of the, uh, uh, Mueller.. targets, they're not going to hand over anything. The Trump organization probably not going to hand it over. Those are going to be the ones that get fought out in court and those people in organizations are likely going to lose. But the number of smaller people are lower people down on the totem pole that begin to flip and cooperate. And the people just above them who start to see that start to get a little worried, they then start to cooperate and so on and so forth. And before you know it, you've had a lot of your former friends going to talk to members of Congress handing them documents that you never thought they would get their hands on it. Yeah. This is going to be unpleasant for Donald Trump, but in the interest of transparency is going to be amazing for the American public. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Economists Say Chance Of Recession Has DOUBLED, Could Be Here In 12 Months
 
03:58
Prominent economists in the United States are sounding the alarm bells as economic indicators continue to tank. They now say that the chance of a recession has actually DOUBLED in the last 24 months, and now they are saying that it could be here in as little as 12 months. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what these economic indicators are and how economists use them to predict catastrophes.   Link – https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-04-09/guggenheim-says-chance-of-recession-in-24-months-has-doubled?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Good News. Everybody, Donald Trump's economic policies have put us on a much faster course for a recession. In fact, economists are now warning us that the chance of recession in the next 24 months has actually doubled, doubled, and it could begin in as few as 12 months from right now. This is according to the economist at the Guggenheim partners which oversee $200 billion, uh, of the U s economy. And the reason they're saying that we're headed for a recession and that it's getting faster is because the economic indicators that they look at to determine these things are beginning to deteriorate. Now, in case you're not familiar with what an economic indicator are, there are plenty of them, different sites and different economists live list, different kinds of economic indicators. But let's run through just a few. The first and foremost that all of them agree on is stock market, but not just going up, up, up or sometimes having a down, down, down. It's stability. And right now they're telling us there is no stability in the stock market. You know, some days we have massive gains. A week later, we could see historic losses. That is what we've been seeing for months now with the stock market. Donald Trump sends out a stupid tweet, the stock market tanks, and it's this volatility of the stock market and the overinflated values have a lot of stocks there that they're predicting is going to come crashing down a crash that they're saying could be up to 50% of the entire market value. Now, for those of us who don't own any stocks, we're not losing any money at first, but eventually those kinds of losses do trickle down and effect every one of us. It affects the housing market. Another economic indicator, which isn't doing too great right now. Homes aren't selling and that's bad. Another economic indicator is consumer spending. Consumer spending is beginning to contract and it did not expand as much as economist had predicted, uh, during the holiday shopping season a few months ago. It's getting smaller. Nonfarm payrolls are not growing at the rate that they need to be growing in order to stave off a recession. Yeah. All of these, uh, uh, payroll increases for average workers are not happening. The reason it looks like pay is going up in the United States is cause when they factor in those numbers of, you know, the person making $10 an hour at Mcdonald's, they're also factoring in the CEO of Mcdonald's making tens of millions a year in PE. So yes, it looks like overall pay is up, but that's only because you factor in people who are making millions of dollars a year on average. It is not increasing, but inflation is another key economic indicator. All of these taken together spell recession, and the best economists in this country right now are telling us that not only is it coming, but it's coming twice as fast as we originally predicted. So buckle up folks, especially with Trump's new tariffs on the European Union, things are about to get pretty bad economically speaking here in the United States. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

BUSTED! Devin Nunes’ Family Farm Likely Using Undocumented Immigrant Laborers
 
04:56
An explosive new report in Esquire has revealed a secret that is incredibly damaging to Republican Representative Devin Nunes. It turns out that the farm his family owns not only moved out of California a decade – contradicting countless puff pieces about Nunes – but it is also likely using undocumented immigrant labor. This flies in the face of Nunes’ diehard support for Donald Trump and his policies, and his own family’s business could be destroyed under Trump’s immigration policies. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Psychologist Says Trump Appeals To Men With “Fragile Masculinity”
 
04:59
According to a new op-ed by an NYU psychologist, Donald Trump is able to manipulate men who suffer from fragile masculinity, and that is what has propelled his success in politics. The arguments made are quite convincing, and even looking at the way Trump behaves gives us insight into what kind of person would find that behavior appealing. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/11/trump-appeals-men-suffer-fragile-masculinity-psychologists/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Um, and they did a lot of great research for this and I fully agree with them 100 percent. The science they use is quite sound, but here's what they were, they're basically trying to say is that Donald Trump was able to attract men in this country to vote for him, but it was men who are suffering from what they're calling fragile masculinity and they've come up with the fragile masculinity hypothesis because that's what this is. This is a hypothesis. They're laying out their evidence and they're trying to make sense of it. One of the things they did to determine whether or not these fragile men supported Donald Trump was they compared voting records for a certain area with Internet search terms, and this is the best part. Here are the search terms that they found a correlated the most with Donald Trump. Supporting areas of the country, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, how to get girls, penis enlargement, penis size, steroids, testosterone and Viagara areas who had higher search, uh, uh, I guess queries for those particular terms. We're more likely to vote for Donald Trump. Now, if you're very secure in your masculinity, I'm assuming you're not searching for things like erectile dysfunction or hair loss or how to get girls and penis enlargement, but those were the people in the areas who tend to vote in higher numbers for Donald Trump. And here's what's even interesting. They went further back to see if maybe this was just a republican thing and it turns out it's not because there is no correlation between those search terms and increased support for John McCain in 2008 or Mitt Romney in 2012. This is a uniquely Trump experience. Donald Trump has awoken the cult of fragile masculinity. And here's how they did it and they explained it this way. Trump comes out there and when you are lacking in your own masculinity or you're too insecure about it, you will latch on to a politician or a leader who exhibits the traits that you feel are necessary to be masculine, which Donald Trump, honest to god, totally not masculine, but he can give that appearance. I guess I could see that to insecure people, he has this hairpiece or whatever the hell is going on up there because he's too proud to admit that he's actually bald audit. Bud started losing my hair at 19 years old, never looked back, whatever it happens, he's overweight, but he's a bully and he's a tough guy and he's gassing children at the border and sticking them in cages and somehow that makes him a manly man. He eats McDonald's almost everyday. He goes golf and he's a billionaire with a hot wife who married them only for his money, but they don't see that part of it. They just see he's a billionaire with a hot wife. That's what they think masculinity is supposed to be, and that is why they've latched onto Donald Trump because according to these psychologists, they lack those traits in themselves. This is toxic and toxic masculinity is something that affects a this entire country, coast to coast and border to border, but when that toss a toxic masculinity becomes our politics, which it has with Donald Trump, then we've got real problems. That's why poll showed that 45 percent of men would not be comfortable with a woman being president. This is absurd. We have to move past this. These men need to figure out what it is in their lives that is missing, that is making them feel so insecure and I understand insecurities are a big issue.

Devin Nunes Gets More Pathetic Everyday
 
04:43
🌞 Need someone to talk to? BetterHelp is there whenever you need them - https://www.betterhelp.com/ringoffire/ Republican Congressman Devin Nunes loves to play the victim, but his attempts are growing more pathetic with each passing day. This week, Nunes filed a $250 million lawsuit against Twitter because parody accounts are mocking him. He also claims in his suit that he has been “shadow banned” by the social media network, a common cry among Republicans who aren’t getting as many likes on their posts as they want. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.   Link – https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/nunes-files-suit-against-twitter-account-making-it-more-popular Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Republican congressmen, Devin Nunes does not understand how the Internet works and he proved that with his $250 million lawsuit that he has filed against Twitter and the creators of several parody accounts that he believes are mocking him online because in Devin Nunes, his mind, if you mock someone online, you can then become the target of a multi hundred million dollar plus lawsuit. Again, he doesn't seem to understand exactly how the Internet works. Here's the issue here. Devin Nunes is pissed off at Twitter one because he claims he's been shadow banned off and on I guess for the last year, which is a common claim of many Republicans, a lot of Republican politicians who say, I've been shadow banned because my post did not get very many likes and I want to be more popular. So obviously it's not me. Twitter's doing something to screw around with the algorithm and make my tweets not appear. Um, no. Maybe you're just tweeting out garbage and you should try a little bit harder. Then you'd probably get some likes and some retweets and maybe even some comments on your tweets. But the biggest issue that Nunes has again is the fact that there's a couple parody accounts out there making fun of him. One of them, Devin Nunes is cow. He's particularly mad at this one, which is ironic because his lawsuit has actually made the Devin Nunes is cow Twitter, one of the currently most popular, uh, Twitter feeds on the Internet. You see what he filed, the lawsuit, that particular Twitter account had fewer than 1000 followers in the days following. As of a sitting down here right now, it had 345,000 followers. So his little lawsuit, temper Tantrum has caused one of the accounts that he was mad at to grow by 344,000 followers. I'm willing to bet that by the time you're watching this, that account is going to be even higher. But here's the thing, Nunes again, mad that people are mocking him doesn't understand that it's actually within Twitter's guidelines and rules that you can do this as long as your account is not attempting to portray themselves as that person. If it is in fact a parody and you say it's a parody, you're good to go. You know, really not a whole lot of a gray area there. As long as you're not attempting to say, I am the real Devin Nunes, pretty much can do whatever you want, and Twitter likes it that way. They like not having to get involved. They like not having to micromanage everything with their website and just let people kind of working out. If you don't like a parody account, move on. Don't follow them. Don't pay attention. Don't read the comments. As I like to tell people online frequently, but Nunes in his fragile little ego feels that this is worthy of a $250 million lawsuit. This lawsuit will not go anywhere. It will likely quickly be dismissed, but that is not going to stop Devin Nunes from freaking out. Anytime someone mocks him online or whenever he posts a tweet that doesn't get enough likes for him. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Judge Says Georgia Can’t Throw Out Absentee Ballot, So They “Go Missing” Instead
 
03:18
Last week, a judge said that absentee ballots in the state of Georgia cannot be thrown out and must be counted, even if there is a slight signature mismatch. So instead of throwing these ballots away or counting them, the state now claims that thousands of absentee ballots from majority African American counties have simply “gone missing.” Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses what’s happening in Georgia.   Link – https://www.salon.com/2018/10/27/thousands-of-absentee-ballot-applications-missing-in-largely-black-georgia-county/   Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

They could not throw those ballots out. They had to count them. State election officials actually being run by Brian Kemp, the Republican running for governor who benefits from all this voter suppression, they decided to go a different route then. If we can't throw them out ... if we have to count them, then we're just going to conveniently lose them. That is exactly what's happened in Georgia right now. Thousands of absentee and vote by mail ballots have now, according to state election officials in Georgia, gone missing. They don't know where they are. Now, Brian Kemp's office, secretary of state, the guy in charge of the elections, they guy who's been running these voter purges, says that, "No, we don't know of any that are missing. That's ... I don't know where that came from." Even though the state government is already said, "Yeah, there's several thousand missing and we don't know where they are." Now, we're getting conflicting stories from the state and from Brian Kemp, the guy that's going to benefit from it. Oh, and to make things worse, the majority of these ballots that have now gone missing ... they belong to African Americans. Not only is this just your run of the mill voter purge, it's also a highly racist voter purge, because Brian Kemp happens to be running against an African American woman who's running for Democrat governor, Stacey Abrams. He knows that these African Americans are gonna turn out and vote for her. He's got to kick them off the voting roles. What they had been doing, was that if the signature on their voter registration form did not directly and exactly match the signature on their ballot, they would throw it out. Last week, judge said, "No, you can't do that. You don't even have actual handwriting experts looking at the signatures to determine if they were written by the same person. It's just people in your office holding the two up and saying, 'No, he dotted the i differently on this one, so, I can throw it away.'" That's what was happening in the state of Georgia, just random idiots working in Brian Kemp's office, being in charge of deciding who gets to vote and who doesn't. Shocking surprise, most of the people who don't get to vote are African Americans now. Now that they've been ordered to preserve those ballots and actually count them, they've just gone missing. We don't know where they are. We don't know if they're gonna turn up before the final votes come in next Tuesday. We don't know. All we do know, is that this voter suppression that's been carried out by Brian Kemp over the last two years, was a calculated effort on behalf of Kemp himself to make sure that he did everything possible to cheat his way into the governorship of the state of Georgia.

If Trump Goes Down, Does Mike Pence Go With Him?

Twitter user @CJNyssen sent us the following question: "If Trump is impeached specifically because of interference in the 2016 election, what happens?

I'm Farron Cousins. We're going to take some questions from Twitter now, so if you have a question that you want us to answer on this show, send it using the hashtag #askROF. Our first question comes from @CJNissin, who asks, "If Trump is impeached specifically because of interference in the 2016 election, what happens? Is Pence automatically removed from the office of the VP because the win is invalid? Would a new emergency election need to take place in such circumstances?" Here's the thing. Regardless, I think, of whatever comes out of these investigations, there's virtually no way to nullify the 2016 presidential election. There's not necessarily a remedy for that in the US Constitution or in any US law, but specifically ... Talk about Pence. Does Pence go down with him? Because that's a question a lot of people have had. We've seen it a lot on our YouTube channel. No, Pence does not automatically go down with him. It's going to come down to what Mike Pence knew. Was Mike Pence even involved, or was he just a dopey guy, standing up there on stage, who had no idea what was happening behind the scenes? Honestly, my theory is that it's the latter. I don't know that Mike Pence was involved in any of this. I don't personally think that he was. I could be 100% wrong. Honest to God, I hope I'm 100% wrong, but Mike Pence thus far has not really been involved in any parts of these investigations. We're not getting people rolling over on Pence. We're not getting any of Pence's allies that are having to testify before Robert Mueller. I don't think Mueller's even gone down that particular avenue to look at Mike Pence. Now, should this investigation come back and the results come out, and we find out that, yeah, Trump was trying to get aid from foreign countries to win the election. If he gets impeached, removed from office, Pence becomes President. I think, for sure, there's obviously going to be investigations into whether or not Mike Pence was then involved in any of this, but I think with what's happening right now, I do not believe that we're going to get any kind of information on Mike Pence. It doesn't appear that he is a target. Again, could be 100% wrong on this, but just based on what we've seen so far, the people who we know have talked to Robert Mueller, doesn't look like Mike Pence is in any way scared, or in any way in trouble at this point. If something happens to Trump, Mike Pence takes over. There will be additional investigations to find out whether or not Pence was involved, or what he knew. But as of right now, I think Pence is just sitting back, hoping quietly that the President gets removed from office.

Devin Nunes Admits Trump Committed A Crime In Secretly Recorded Tapes

Devin Nunes has been one of the President’s most ardent defenders, and has even bent the rules to keep Trump one step ahead of the investigations.

Protestors Prepare GIANT Baby Trump Blimp To Mock Trump In England
 
03:02
British protestors are planning on letting their disdain for the American president known to the world, and they are preparing to launch a 20-foot tall blimp in the shape of a giant baby version of Donald Trump – complete with diaper – in the air when Trump touches down for his visit. They understand that the best way to attack Trump is to attack his ego, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/393952-protesters-plan-to-fly-giant-trump-baby-during-his-visit-to?amp&__twitter_impression=true Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

It had been planned a couple times, it had been canceled a couple times, postponed a few times, but now the official visit is set for July 13th. When Donald Trump touches down in the United Kingdom he is going to be greeted by a 20 foot tall blimp that is actually an image of a baby Donald Trump with a diaper. That is the form of protest that British protesters have decided is the best way to show Donald Trump that he is not welcome in their country and that they do not respect him. This to me is one of the greatest forms of protest imaginable, because the people over there seem to understand Donald Trump in a way that a lot of the folks in the United States don't quite get. Here's an exact quote, this is from Leo [Murray 00:01:07], he is the guy who organized all this, got the blimp together, raised the money to do it. This is what he says, and this is so spot on, "Moral outrage has no effect on Trump because he has no shame. He's immune to it but he has a tremendously fragile ego, so ridicule is an effective form of protest. So we want to make sure that he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him." That's what you have to do. That's how you resist. That's how you fight back against this man. You can't try to show him the truth, you can't try to show him that his policies are destroying the United States, that they're wrecking the economy, that they're destroying families, that they're destroying the environment because he doesn't care. To be honest he probably doesn't quite understand it, but what he does understand is when people are making fun of him. That is exactly what the Brits are going to do here. They're going to make sure that he gets off that plane and where ever he goes, that there is a giant 20 foot baby Trump following him around the city, and they've made sure that if they can't get the permit to fly the blimp, that they have already got a barge ready and they're just going to have it on the barge. So there is no way that the president is not going to see this thing. They're going to make sure that he knows what the rest of the world thinks of him and it's going to be interesting for Donald because one of the reasons he'd been putting off this trip was because he didn't want to be met by protestors, so they've up it. They may not be in the streets, I'm sure there'll probably be a lot of them though but they don't have to be at this point because the biggest form of protest imaginable is going to be hovering over Donald Trump's head through his entire visit.

Poor Donald Trump just cannot catch a break. Every time he turns on his TV, there's somebody there making fun of him, whether it's Saturday Night Live, maybe it's Jimmy Kimmel, maybe it's Steven Colbert, but it's just always dog in on this president. And this past weekend was no exception, even though Saturday Night Live ran a rerun and Donald Trump got super mad about it. So Sunday morning Donald Trump takes to Twitter and in the midst of a massive Twitter tirade, Twitter Tantrum, really, he tweeted out the following two part tweet about how pissed he is at Saturday Night Live and other late night comedy shows. Here it is. It's truly incredible. That shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny slash no talent can spend all of their time knocking the same person, me over and over without so much of a mention of the other side, like an advertisement without consequences. Same with late night shows. Should Federal Election Commission fee commission and or FCC look into this. There must be collusion with the Democrats and of course Russia. Such one sided media coverage. Most of it. Fake News, hard to believe. I won and am winning approval rating 52% 93% with Republicans. Sorry, Hashtag Maga um, wow. That's a lot to take in right from his insane tweet. Um, okay. So first let's start with the obvious. He's, he's mad that they make fun of him. Dude, if you don't want to be made fun of, don't be in a position of power. Don't be a high profile human being. It's literally happened to every president before you. It's going to happen to every single one after you. It's what they do. Late night comedians made fun of Obama, even if they did support him because it was timely and topical and funny. I laughed at jokes making fun of Obama, even though I had supported him. Get a grip and lighten up. You want an investigation in the what? This isn't, you know, a news debate. Plus even if it were, we don't have the fairness doctrine anymore. You can thank your savior, Ronald Reagan for that. So there is no requirement to air the other side as you say. But if you're going to start calling from media outlets to air both sides of something, you better be careful because that's really going to destroy Fox News. The other thing, collusion, Donald Trump in this tweet that I just read you, he thinks that Saturday Night Live and and Kimmel and Colbert and Samantha Bee and all these people, they must be colluding not only with the Democrats but with Russia, so now it's the Democrats colluding with Russia. My God. Is there anything that Russia doesn't have their hands in right now? They're just colluding with Republicans and Democrats and late night comedians and Saturday Night Live. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Trump Fixer Michael Cohen Reaches Plea Deal With Robert Mueller
 
04:39
According to reports, Donald Trump’s former fixer/lawyer Michael Cohen has reached a plea deal with special prosecutor Robert Mueller. If true, this could signal the beginning of the end of this investigation and possibly even the Trump presidency (though its unlikely that Republicans in the Senate would vote convict Trump and removing him from office.) Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses these new developments.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/11/michael-cohen-reaches-plea-deal-mueller-hell-offer-new-testimony-potentially-damaging-trump-report/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

As part of that plea deal, Michael Cohen is going to plead guilty to lying to Congress as part of their investigation and his past testimony, and in exchange he is going to fully cooperate with the Mueller probe and give them everything that they ask for. This is not the first deal. The Cohen is made. There's been reports for several months. That Cohen is also working with prosecutors in the state of New York. They're looking at all kinds of things, tax fraud, charitable fraud, a business dealings, all kinds of things that Trump and his associates were involved in, but now after months of speculation, Cohen has agreed to this plea deal with Robert Muller. Here's why this is important, and this also helps explain a little bit why Donald Trump's been freaking out about the probe for the last few days. Cohen knows everything. There is nothing that happened in Donald Trump's life while Cohen was involved that Cohen didn't know about. That's why he was the fixer. He's the one who helped arrange the payment to stormy Daniels. He's the one who knew about the meeting that took place in Trump tower. He knows about Donald Trump's finances. He knows where the money comes from. He knows where the money goes, and he is one of the guys who helped make sure nobody else knew about it. Cohen is the guy and now Miller's got him cooperating. Now before we go ahead and pop the champagne corks at this point, let's take a minute to realize that Cohen could end up being another. You know, Manafort, perhaps a Papadopoulos, somebody who is not exactly going to be completely truthful with Robert Muller. Maybe he's going to give information that's important. Maybe he's just going to try to sidestep it and give information that points away from Donald Trump. Again, we're not going to know anything until we get that final report or until we get some kind of report from this investigation, but assuming Cohen is going to fully cooperate and give her everything he wants and not lie about anything, then this not only should be the beginning of the end of the solar probe, but it should also possibly be the beginning of the end of the Trump administration. Not that Republicans in the Senate would ever vote to convict him if it did come to impeachment, but it would make his life a living hell. Trying to run for president again in 20 slash 20, especially with some Republicans out there chattering about possibly primary in him for the 2020 election. If this Cohen arrangement works out as we hope it will, this will be in one way or another, the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency. Assuming they go to impeachment after this final report. You know, if we get the information we need and we can link Trump to a crime, whether it's tax evasion, tax fraud, perjury, obstruction of justice, or possibly even the big collusion, which is going to be the hardest thing to prove any one of those other things that was going to make it very hard for this man to run for president. Again, especially like I mentioned, when you have Republican challengers who really want to jump in there and primary him, but they're a little afraid to do so. Public is going to be a lot more willing to go ahead and support a Republican primary challenger. If they understand that Donald Trump could face impeachment and removal from office. It's not going to sit too well with the public at that point. So that's why I think this could be the beginning of the end.

Freshmen Members Of Congress Forced To Listen To Lobbyists And Corporate CEOs
 
03:38
Freshmen members of Congress have been forced to sit through an orientation that featured as speakers lobbyist for corporations and current and former CEOs of major businesses, according to tweets sent out by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib. This is deplorable, and what these corporate stooges told these new members is even worse than deplorable. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://twitter.com/ocasio2018/status/1070764827533078529?s=11 Link - https://twitter.com/rashidatlaib/status/1070739212213862401?s=11 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Yesterday, the new first year incoming members of the US House of Representatives were forced to sit through an orientation meeting where they got to hear from corporate lobbyists, current and former ceos of major corporations, and not a single leader from Labor or advocacy or anyone who does their job to benefit the public. In general, this information was exposed via a series of tweets from both Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a new coming congress person, Rashida Tlaib. Here's what the pair of them tweeted out first is Ocasio-Cortez, Ocasio-Cortez. Excuse me. Um, right now, freshmen members of Congress ready by partisan orientation with briefings on issues, invited, panelist offer insights to inform new Congress member views as they prepare to legislate. Number of corporate ceos we've listened to here for number of labor leaders zero in a subsequent tweet she said are bipartisan. Congressional orientation is co hosted by a corporate lobbyist group. Other members have quietly expressed to me. They're concerned that this wasn't told to us in advance. Lobbyists are here. Goldman Sachs is here. Where's labor activists? Frontline community leaders. And here is a Rashida Tlaib lady who says, Gary Cohn, former CEO, Goldman Sachs, addressing new members of Congress today, says, you guys are way over your head. You don't know how the game is played. No, Gary, you don't know what's coming or revolutionary congress that puts people over profits. Here is what I love and I've said this plenty of times about Ocasio-Cortez and and all of these new members to lab and all of them, they are exposing what is actually taking place in Washington DC. Had these two women not tweeted out this information, we would not know it. We would not know that freshmen members of Congress are being forced to sit in meetings, having corporate lobbyists tell them what they should or should not think, direct them on how to legislate ceos from corporations light Goldman Sachs who stole billions of dollars from the US economy, lecturing them, that they're over their head. This is disgusting, folks. This is absolute insanity. Corporations are running our government and there is no question about it, but with people like Ocasio-Cortez with people like to lave and some of the others coming in there, people like Ro Khanna and Ted Lieu who have already been in there for a few years. We're finally starting to see the truth. We're seeing everything exposed. These people are not afraid to stand up to the powers that be and they haven't even been sworn in yet and that's what I love so much about this because if they can expose so much corruption and dirt and already changed the way that policy is headed before they're even sworn in, just imagine how much good they're going to do when they actually hold that seat. That is what is inspiring. That is what gives us hope and that is why I think that this new incoming congress might actually be able to finally do something good for the American public and it's not because of the old guard establishment members who've been in there for 20 years. It's because of these fresh faced big idea newcomers who do not come from money. They did not accept corporate money, and so they know that their loyalty, their allegiance is to the people of the United States and not these corporate lobbyists that they're being forced to meet with before they can be sworn in.

New York Attorney General Launches Financial Fraud Investigation Into Trump Projects
 
04:50
🌞 Need someone to talk to? BetterHelp is there whenever you need them - https://www.betterhelp.com/ringoffire/ The Attorney General’s office of New York has opened an investigation into several projects that were done by the Trump Organization. They have subpoenaed several banks that funded the projects, hoping to see if their records match up to what Michael Cohen said during his recent Congressional testimony. He implicated Trump in a financial fraud scheme, and now New York investigators want to s ee if he’s telling the truth. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.   Link – https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/11/nyregion/deutsche-bank-trump.html Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Yesterday, monday at the beginning of the day, Donald Trump was involved in no fewer than 17 different investigations. By the end of the day, that number had risen by at least two. So by the end of the day, he was the target of at least 19 different investigations. The new ones that popped up yesterday, uh, come from the New York Attorney General's office of Leticia, James, and what Leticia James has done and her crew, they've subpoenaed a couple of banks that Donald Trump's been doing business with because they want to see those bank records to find out whether or not Donald Trump did inflate his assets when applying for loans and other monies. And the reason they think they need to look into this is because, I don't know if you remember this, but there was this guy, Michael Cohen, he testified before Congress a couple of weeks ago and he actually implicated Donald Trump and a massive financial fraud scheme that democratic representative Ro Khanna said was textbook financial fraud. Donald Trump, according to Michael Cohen, was cooking the books in New York. And so the New York attorney general said, you know what, I think that's looking a worth looking into. So they have issued these subpoenas to Deutsche Bank, the hand over the records. Uh, they've issued subpoenas to investors bank to handover financial records and all of these are related to different deals that the Trump organization, the Trump company, whatever it was, was trying to work out. They want to know if what Donald Trump told them or submit it to them on paper matches up with the actual financial records of the Trump organization should be pretty simple. If the numbers match, he's good to go. If they don't, that means you submitted fraudulent information to these financial institutions in order to secure a loan and that's illegal. But there's a catch here. The Attorney General's office in New York is not looking for criminal activity. This unfortunately is a civil investigation. So with this particular investigation, technically both of the investigations, the worst that could happen would be a fine, they could then refer for criminal prosecution should they choose to go that route. But right now it is just a civil case and nobody is looking at the possibility of jail time unless of course they find out that this has been a routine, a operating procedure for the Trump organization for other finance. So a financial institutions as well. In which case, yeah, charges will probably eventually be filed, but for right now we have to settle for the fact that this is a simple civil investigation, but keep in mind the attorney general's office, should they find financial fraud, they actually do have the power to completely dissolve a corporation if the fraud is great enough. So worst case scenario, all the papers match up and Donald Trump squeaky clean and we were all wrong. Best case scenario, not only does Trump get arrested along with his children for crimes that they cannot be pardoned for cause this is the state of New York, but that also the entire Trump organization gets dissolved, broken apart and sold off to whoever wants to buy that piece of crap. Now for me, I know it's a long shot, but I am still going to reserve just a little bit of hope that that could happen. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

Trump Breaks His Previous Record, Now Lies To The Public 5.5 Times PER DAY!
 
03:04
Just a few months ago, fact checkers clocked Donald Trump in at right around 5 lies to the American public every day. But since August, the number of lies has been growing at an alarming rate, bringing his current lie-rate up to 5.5 times every single day. The man clearly has a psychological problem and it is beyond time that we took it seriously, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/14/politics/trump-fact-checker-1628/index.html Ring of Fire needs your help!

Ever since Donald Trump announced his campaign for President back 2015, I've noticed something after repeatedly watching everything that this man does. There is only one thing in the world that Donald Trump does well, or at least does well enough for him, and that is lying. Donald Trump is absolutely one of the best liars in The United States, not because of his ability to get away with a lie, but just with the sheer amount of lies that he tells. Earlier this year, I think it was back in August when he hit his 1,000 lie mark for his presidency, the President was lying just under five times per day. I think it was about 4.8, 4.9 lies average per day. As of today, as of November 15th, 2017, Donald Trump is lying on average of five and a half times per day, every single day, to the American public. So how did he increase that average? How did he beat his old high score? Well, for the last month or so, Donald Trump, according to Fact Checkers, has been lying an average of nine times per day to the American public, which brings up that under five point average up to five and a half. Five a half times per day on average, Donald Trump is lying to you, lying to me, lying to all of us, lying to the world, for everyone to see. Now, doesn't that sound like somebody who maybe has a bit of a psychological issue, a pathological need to not tell the truth? Because that's what we're looking at here, this isn't just a fun, oh, Donald Trump won't stop lying to the public. This is a man who clearly has something very wrong with the way his brain works. He is incapable of thinking and acting like a normal, rational human being. That's not exactly the kind of guy that we need to have sitting in the Oval Office with access to the nuclear codes, of which right now nobody can stop him from launching. Donald Trump needs to be reigned in somehow, some way, and the only way that I can think of is by invoking the 25th Amendment. A man who lies to the world five and a half times per day on average is not the kind of sensible, rational human being that we need serving as the President of The United States. He is a national embarrassment and members of every party in Washington DC need to be doing everything that they can to remove him from office before his lies cause further damage to The United States.

Trump Voters Losing Their Jobs Daily Because Of Trump’s Policies
 
04:27
The tariffs that Donald Trump has put in place are not only having the opposite effect that he had predicted, but they are also disproportionately affecting the people who put him in office. So far 65% of the job losses and expected job losses from the tariffs have happened in counties that voted for Trump, meaning his voters are getting screwed the most from his policies. Should we be sympathetic, or is it time that people learn the consequences of their voting habits? Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2018/07/09/trumps-delusions-are-about-to-blow-up-in-his-own-voters-faces/?utm_term=.810d3cd59402 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

And this story here is another example of just why it's getting harder and harder to care. See, as we all know, Donald Trump has engaged the United States in a massive trade war with countries all over the planet. And right now, the United States actually appears to be losing those trade wars because, much like Bush with Iraq and Afghanistan, Donald Trump entered these trade wars with absolutely no exit strategy. He knows nothing of global economic policy, and therefore he's decided to just screw us all over. But, according to a new report, he's actually screwing over the people who voted for him more than anyone else in this country. 65% of the retaliatory tariffs that other countries have placed on the United States are directly affecting counties that voted for Trump. 65%, so we're talking two-thirds of the tariffs that have been put in place by other countries on our country are directly affecting the people who voted for Donald Trump. Only 35% are affecting counties that voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. But here's the kicker. Some of these counties where the tariffs are hitting the hardest, and we're talking about potentially 1,046,686 jobs that could be lost in red counties alone in the United States, upwards of two million total from the trade wars. But over one million red county jobs are at stake, and part of it is because countries like China are actually pretty smart with what they're doing. They're not just trying to harm the United States. What they're trying to do is harm Donald Trump himself with his voters, because they tailored their tariffs to directly affect those counties, to directly affect the reddest areas of the United States. They knew what they were doing. And it is sad when anybody loses their job. Hell, if we lose these one million or two million jobs that are currently being projected within the next year, that is going to absolutely decimate the U.S. economy, and we do not need that to happen. We need a remedy for Donald Trump's trade wars before he destroys this economy that Barack Obama took eight years to try to correct and still couldn't even finish it. This is not something that can be turned around in four years or eight years. And we're on the cusp of the hardest part of an economic recovery when we're at the most vulnerable to outside forces. These trade wars will, according to economists, send us into another recession, possibly within the next 12 months. And if we lose another one million, two million jobs in this country, we could be right back in the same situation we were in in 2007. But Trump doesn't care about that. He doesn't care that the people who put him in office are suffering, that they're on the verge of losing their job, and that thousands upon thousands already have lost their jobs because of his trade wars. It's 100% because of that. And again, I'm finding it hard to find sympathy for these people. They did this to themselves. They knew what they were getting into. Trump was very clear about what he wanted to do as President of the United States.

Trump Admin Tells Govt Workers To “Do Chores For Landlords” To Pay Rent During Shutdown
 
04:45
In a truly bizarre move, the Trump administration has sent a letter to furloughed workers giving them tips on how to handle their landlords now that they can’t pay rent due to the government shutdown. One of the tips suggested in the letter is for these workers to simply do chores for their landlords in exchange for rent. They are literally telling them to become indentured servants while the government is shut down!

Well, we're officially in day seven of the partial government shutdown with about 25 percent government services completely shut down at the moment and there's really no end in sight. The Senate, uh, yesterday actually decided to go ahead and just adjourn until December 31st, which means there is literally no hope whatsoever of reopening the government at least until New Year's eve. And even then, that seems like a long shot that, that would happen on that day instead. The Trump administration through the US office of personnel management is trying to make things a little easier for the furloughed workers because again, we've got 25 percent of government workers who are not getting a paycheck anymore. They're not getting paid, although they are still required to go to work. Most of them every day. And we're talking about 42,000 members of the United States Coast Guard. It's not like they just get the time off like, oh cool, the government shut down. Sweet. I'm going to go sit on my couch and watch TV for a few days. That's not how it works. Ladies and gentlemen. These people still have to go to work, they just don't get paid for it, so the office of personnel management with the Trump administration trying to make things easier for these workers that are getting paid a is trying to work on sample letters for furloughed workers that they can give to their landlords to explain to them that I don't understand what's happening with my financial situation right now because of the government shutdown a, I'm not going to be able to pay you rent, so that kind of sucks and a three, maybe I can do some odd jobs for you in exchange for paying rent. That is what the federal government is suggesting to these furloughed workers to do with their landlords so they don't lose their housing while this government shutdown is going on in the president has made it clear he has no intention of ending this shut down anytime soon. So yeah. Why don't you furloughed government workers who are still required to go to work everyday. You're just not getting paid. So then when you get home, why don't you work more doing odd jobs for your landlord, essentially become an indentured servant to them. You know, we're going back to the feudal system here. Be a surf for, for your master so that you can continue living in that apartment or that house or whatever it is your renting May. Maybe that might work for some of the people who actually are renting. If their landlord is like, yeah, I understand governments dysfunctional. These people are idiots. We'll see what we can work out with you. How are you going to do that? If you're not renting and instead, I dunno, maybe HSBC or bank of America or Chase Manhattan, maybe they're holding your mortgage and they're expecting that payment on January first.

MSNBC Is TERRIFIED Of Bernie Sanders, And Their Coverage Shows It
 
05:16
MSNBC is a corporate, billionaire-controlled media outlet, and we need to stop pretending that it is anything other than that. Their recent coverage of a Bernie Sanders speech shows how desperate they are to prevent the popular candidate from gaining traction amongst their audience. They lie, distort, and misrepresent what Bernie has to say, and that resonates with their audience that doesn’t realize they’re being lied to. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://theintercept.com/2019/03/03/msnbc-yet-again-broadcasts-blatant-lies-this-time-about-bernie-sanders-opening-speech-and-refuses-to-correct-them/ Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

On Saturday, Bernie Sanders gave a major campaign speech in New York, drew crowd of thousands of people standing out there in the bitter cold waiting to listen to Bernie Sanders and everyone else who joined him on stage, MSNBC live, uh, showed this speech live and they had a panel there so that immediately after the speech ended they can analyze the speech and dissect it and tell us what he did great and tell us what he did wrong, but they only wanted to focus on what he did wrong. And unfortunately for that panel, they lied about those things as well. Uh, specifically MSNBC, analysts Zerlina Maxwell, who also happens to be a former Clinton campaign staffer said that Bernie didn't mention race or, or the struggles of minorities until the 23 minute mark of that speech. And, uh, Glenn Greenwald over at the intercept actually pointed out by providing video clips that MSNBC allegedly was watching, showing that no, that's 100% wrong. There is zero truth to that. And he said it right at the beginning. It was a big part of his speech talking about race and the problems that minorities face here in the United States and what he wants to do to fix it. But MSNBC didn't bother to correct miss math, Maxwell, Maxwell. They just let her go with it. They just said, okay, yeah, that's problem. Yeah, we woo. Here's the thing. It is time to stop pretending like MSNBC is anything other than a corporate controlled media outlet that only is interested in preserving the status of millionaires and billionaires. They are. Think about it. They hated Bernie in 2016 the host that didn't hate Bernie ended up getting fired from the network, by the way, and now in 2020 there once again, pushing establishment, trying to tear down the one person who could bring change here to the United States, and they're doing it because they know that an establishment type Democrat, a centrist Democrat, he's not going to raise their taxes. He's not going to go after their industries. She's not gonna make it to where they're not making as much money each year. That's what a centrist Democrat would do. That's why they were pushing Hillary in 2016 and that's why they're anti Bernie telling lies about him on the air that everybody can verify or false because they don't want to pay more in taxes. MSNBC, and I'm sorry to say this, they're just not trustworthy. If we can't trust other media outlets because they're owned by corporations than MSNBC cannot be exempt from that group just because they share similar ideologies to what we do. We to understand that #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

In Pathetic Op Ed, Mitch McConnell Begs For Bipartisanship After Years Of GOP Obstruction
 
03:18
Mitch McConnell – maybe even the entire Republican Party – appear to be completely immune to the concept of irony. This week, McConnell penned an op-ed for Fox News where he begged the Democrats to work with Republicans in the spirit of bipartisanship. This is coming from the man who once said that the goal of his Party after regaining power in 2010 was to make Obama a one-term President. There is no honor in working with a liar and cheat like Mitch McConnell, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2018/11/14/mitch-mcconnell-wrote-an-op-ed-calling-bipartisanship-people-are-not-having-it/?utm_term=.39c454fc9871 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!
