It was so urgent for xx year old (who should be term limited out of office by now) Nancy Pelosi to try to remove president trump from office that she got the US House of Representatives to vote against the President. Only problem, she couldn’t get a single person from the Republican Party to support her. Only do nothing Democrats. Now her urgent action is 4 weeks old.

Why was the US Democratic Party Debate of January 2020 so boring?

What were their personal sales points they made?

Liz- Only the women in this stage can beat men > BC Response> So why were they on stage with you? Aren’t they winning in the polls?

Bernie- (who arrived by plane and car)- we have to take on the big oil companies. > BC Response> Bernie that pitch is getting old unless you find a new way to travel.

Homosexual Pete- we’re going to convince committed Christians that are prolife and pro-family to vote for who don’t support them. > BC Response> people buy from who they like and trust. Might be as hard for a sexual candidate to win as it was for Mitt Romney with the mainstream Christians.

Some unknown guy running- I’m going to beat President Trump on the economy. > BC Response> Still not sure who you are, but can you BOOM better than our current growth or just planning to tax people to death like your leftist comrades on stage?

Quid Pro Joe- I can take on Trump because he’s attacking me most. > BC Response> you’re only getting his attention because you’re leading in the pools. When the Hunter pay to play story come to light do think the media will ignore your corruption?

Where’s the fire with these folks?

What Would A Bernie Sanders Do If Elected President?

The 78 year old senator would probably not live through 1 four year term as president if he were elected. What does Bernie believe?

“Among other things, Sanders has refused to call Venezuelan strongman Nicolas Maduro a dictator; has called Benjamin Netanyahu a “racist”; has campaigned with congressional supporters of the boycott-Israel movement, and said China has done more to address extreme poverty “than any country in the history of civilization.”

As Fugitive Carlos Ghosn Continues to Blame The Japanese Justice System, Family Speaks Out

As former Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn jumped bail and fled to Lebanon, he blamed the Japan Justice system for his troubles. No doubt, the prosecutors in Japan can hold a person much longer than any developed nation without charges. This is should be changed. However, the thing most Westerners don’t understand is that prosecutors rarely go after someone unless they see that they have a solid case.

Probably the closest person to Carlos was his ex-wife. Rita Ghosn gave up her career so she could support Carlos in his global position as well as raise the children. She also ran a Lebanese restaurant near the Daikanyama area of Tokyo. In 2016, Carlos remarried Carole Ghosn.

Following his arrest for allegedly misusing Nissan company funds and hiding his personal income from the authorities, Rita Ghosn commented on her Facebook account saying , ‘all narcissists are hypocrites. They pretend to have morals and values that they really don’t possess,’ the shared message has since been removed but continued,

‘Behind closed doors, they lie, insult, criticize, disrespect and abuse. They can do and say whatever they want, but how dare you say anything back to them or criticize them. They have a whole set of rules for others, but follow none of their own rules, and practice nothing of what they preach.’

As predicted, Carlos has tried to blame others and the justice system for his crimes. What can be more damning than someone that lived with the accused for twenty plus years…

Carlos Ghosn, Former Nissan Boss Jumps Bail, Breaks Japan Laws Again In Flight To Lebanon

Carlos Ghosn, Former Nissan CEO and Corporate Pirate

Carlos Ghosn proclaimed his innocence in sending millions of Nissan dollars to paper companies in the Netherlands and the Middle East under the management of his children. Today he jumped bail sneaking out of Japan to avoid prosecution.

Bloomberg reported about his departure. Disregarding the laws and fleeing to a country without reciprocal legal agreements seems to reinforce the position that Ghosn is indeed guilty despite his video in April [here] claiming to be innocent.

Ghosn claimed the Japanese legal system is rigged against him. The Japanese legal system is not perfect, but definitely more effective than other developed nations in identifying criminals and punishing them for their crimes. This bail jumping by Carlos Ghosn reinforces the idea that he is guilty.

The government of Japan should lodge a formal complaint with the Lebanese government to send Ghosn back for trial immediately.

Maybe now, Ghosn can earn the title #pirateghosn for defrauding Nissan shareholders of millions of dollars?
