The House intelligence committee is to begin hearings Monday into Russia’s role in cybersecurity breaches at the Democratic National Committee, as well as President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that his predecessor had authorized a wiretap of Trump Tower. FBI Director James Comey and Mike Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, are slated to testify.

Comey confirms that there were efforts to penetrate voter registration systems in various states, wounding the “There was no hack of the vote” bit.

Someone improperly disseminated misleading information to the electorate to affect the outcome of the presidential election in 2016. I hope James Comey finds out who did it.

Here’s the thing, though - how many voters who weren’t already against trump even care about Russia? -_- If anything, Putin’s approval rating amongst GOPers has skyrocketed, and their base is so debased they’d rather have Putin literally take over the US if it meant avoiding a Democrat as president.

In other words, how can trump possibly be held accountable when the entire GOP is corrupt to the core? I’m serious - even if a blatant smoking gun emerges, how could he be punished?

re: #8 Kragar

I’d keep my eye on Stone and Manafort. Both are up to their eyeballs in all of this, and both know who’s done what. Stone is particularly interesting to watch because he’s admitted to having contact with Guccifer. That Trump’s trying to downplay his role and that of Manafort should be a flashing red light that Bannon knows just how screwed Trump is because of all those contacts with Russians.

After all, this is the same fucking administration that had no problem with Flynn being NSA and a key member of the admin while being a foreign fucking agent for Turkey and lying about it right up until he was resigned.

That’s still the tip of the iceberg, especially considering that Sessions committed perjury over his own contacts with the Russian Ambassador.

If this was all confined to just Flynn, that’d be plenty bad - on par with say Iran-Contra. But everywhere you turn, you’ve got people lying about who had contact with which Russians and why.

We know that there’s plenty of contacts with the Russians among the Trump cabal. The overriding question is why all of these contacts. And what did those contacts result in. Who was compromised and what effect has it had on US national security.

The GOP don’t care. They’re too busy fixated on trying to blame the leakers or Obama or Clinton for this.

Among the banks cited are: RBS, HSBC, Citibank, and UBS.

This seems relevant. HSBC and some of the other banks cited are already being investigated under separate money laundering claims, and the banks by and large claim that they’re following the law.

Clearly, the laws aren’t sufficient - and here again Trump’s looking to gut regulation and oversight.

Hmmmm… this too seems relevant. No direct links to Trump in all this, but he’s signaled intentions to reduce restrictions and oversight on banking institutions.

re: #21 Nyet

That’s a good question.

And much as I’m loathe to say it, Glenn Greenwald might have a point after all - far too many American voters in the states that matter are insular and willfully ignorant and utterly incapable of caring about an issue until it has a direct and immediate impact on their lives. Thus, Russia = “meh, whatever”, but threatening to take away healthcare might finally get them to pay attention and bother voting against the GOP.

Also, there’s the hardcore antiwar left who remain convinced to this day that HRC would’ve started WWIII with Russia via a “no-fly” zone in Syria, echo “it’s all the Deep State’s fault” talking points, and call the entire Russia investigation “McCarthyist”

So…my point of view is, unless there really is a smoking gun the size of an anti-aircraft missile (and so blatantly simple and easy to understand that even the lowest of low-info voters will “get it” without needing further explanation), nothing that could dent the electoral fortunes of the GOP will come of this :/

and thus we have arrived at the point… where the GOP, who have been moral scolds of the American public and particularly of the Democratic Party and the cultural headings of America, who have supposedly upheld the moral high ground for these last few decades now telling us, that’s its perfectly okay to accept treason as an acceptable behavior when faced with the unpalatable option of having a Democratic woman in the highest office in the land, especially so, since she found a way to excuse the sexual transgressions of her husband.

So, in response, we have to put into place, that very Christian epitome of ethical ideals, Donald Trump.

It’s enough to make you think that there really is no God (and no, I don’t think there really is one) and that the rank and file of the GOP is so besotted with the idea of being in power that there is no line that they will not cross or past principle that they can disavow.

And the percentage of people who have insurance and are under insured or those that are diagnosed with a disorder whose treatment is not normally covered.

MS drugs, for example are several thousands of dollars a year. My hubby’s monthly co-pay just recently went from $10 a month to $300.

Luckily, one of the drug companies helps with that.

NO ONE CAN AFFORD $300 a month.

Homeland Security officials on Monday announced a list of law enforcement agencies that refused to detain immigrants arrested in connection with crimes in the United States so that the federal government could then deport them, a sign of a looming Trump administration crackdown on sanctuary cities nationwide.

Federal officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in a conference call with reporters, said the list was not an official compilation of sanctuary cities. Instead, it was a snapshot of law enforcement agencies, including in Maryland and Virginia, that refused to honor a total of 206 detainers issued by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement branch of the Department of Homeland Security from Jan. 28 to Feb. 3.

The list shows that cities and towns are not helping immigration authorities deport potentially serious criminals, including people arrested on suspicion of or convicted of drunken driving, aggravated assault and homicide, Homeland Security officials said.

“…Roughly 45 minutes into today’s briefing, National Journal’s George Condon raised the issue, asking Spicer if reporters could assume that when he reads news articles from the White House podium, he is “vouching for the accuracy of those articles.” This was a clear reference to Spicer’s Thursday recitation of Napolitano’s claim. Spicer replied that this was a “silly assertation (sic)” and that “reading a story … is not vouching for it.”

Condon followed up, asking Spicer to discuss his conversation with the British following those comments. Spicer replied, “There was merely an explanation of what we did and why we did it, which is what I just said to you. And that was it. Simply that.” And then Spicer ended the briefing before any other reporters could ask the press secretary more questions about the incident.

Former Republican Florida Congressman David Jolly did not mince his words in this excerpted video as he told the truth about Trump many are attempting to run away from as fast as they can. He appeared on CNN with a narrative that holds a lot of weight given his political affiliation.

“There is a bigger issue here I think the anxiety of the American people are wrestling with,” David Jolly said. “Which is, whether or not this president is intellectually qualified to be president of the United States. There is a credibility issue, yes. He is never, part of his ego, going to apologize for false claims. He is going to make more false claims. The question is, are we dealing with a president who is, electorally qualified of course, but intellectually qualified.”

“You are saying he is not smart enough,” the CNN host Poppy Harlow interjected.

That’s the challenge isn’t it. While Democratic states may be able to fend off things until the next election, those in Republican states will be hurt. But we won’t fix things until either WWC get a clue-by-four, or they diminish in power.

Or, the conservatives on the SCOTUS decide that the country is more important than their party and put some serious restrictions on gerrymandering.

We cannot keep saving people from themselves at our expense.

I saw in the Washington Post on Thursday how a woman was crediting Trump for the heath care aid she was getting that saved her son…without seeming to realize that the help was from Obamacare and Trump was going to end it for her. However, this has been going in for a generation: Republicans shit on the floor, Democrats clean the mess and then get blamed for the whole thing in the first place.

“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”

Call it if you will the pinhead state. Professionals need not apply. Professionals are not welcome.

Uriah the Hittite was cuckolded, but not incestuously. Lot had both his daughters but in typical male fashion blamed them (Genesis 19:31-38). I confess, father, I had the merest hint of memory and had to Google to remind myself of who did what with whom:

31And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: 32Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. 33And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. 34And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. 35And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. 36Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. 37And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day. 38And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

Given that it’s almost always projection, my guess is we’re going to see an actual attempt to create a loyal-to-Trump cadre that loyalty checks the federal employees. The “commissars” certainly have that scent.

Because, seriously…whenever they invent a thing that’s attacking them, it’s to justify doing that very fucking thing.

Not that this Ivanka thing is necessarily a part of that. Personally I think Trump is a mess who (1) has a management style that doesn’t delegate, (2) doesn’t have patience with independent women and wouldn’t let his daughter do her own thing, (3) requires his daughter to act as his sounding board and dogsbody because ultimately even his closest ties are about dominance and demanding others acknowledge the primacy of his feelings..

‘I didn’t know she cut it off’: Penis attack victim John Bobbitt reveals the horror of being assaulted by his wife in notorious crime

Lorena left the house with the amputated organ, threw it out her car window, and then called 9-1-1. Amazingly, the police managed to recover it in time for it to be re-attached in a 9 hour operation. I can see a couple of cops deployed on the roadside in the middle of the night: “We’re looking for WHAT?!”

Well, ok, having your business cut off with a kitchen knife is a bad thing, and I don’t endorse it as a response to domestic violence, but this asshole still gets the world’s smallest violin from me.

What the hell did she expect? The GOP’s ideological purity, especially on abortion and women’s rights has been abundantly clear for a long time. She was viewed as a second class citizen all along. Trump epitomized the misogyny of the GOP. He admitted to being a sex predator who repeatedly assaulted women all because he thought he could due to his position of power.

The women in the GOP didn’t care. Many still don’t. Many still think that the GOP somehow has their interests in mind, except that the only thing the GOP cares about is gutting functioning government all to give tax cuts to the rich. They’re all into restricting rights of others and restoring the primacy of white guys over all other groups.

trump didn’t like being called in his lies - so Fox agreed to pass on the blame. The scariest part of this administration is the demands the chief idiot makes on private organizations. If they don’t do his bidding he kills their share price or ensures they lose their client base.

That tactic is only going to work for so long. There will be a time when the returns for protecting the Orange Mess will not be worth it and any Trump threats will be seen as a joke.

The fucker has gotten away with this kind of shit in business but it is no longer going to work once he loses the backing of the GOP and the support of the idiots that voted him in.

Taxpayers. We’re paying for it. But most of the money the GOP and Trump want to throw at the military wont go to the service members, but for gear that wont be deployed for years because it takes that much time for new tech to get deployed.

And all this talk of expanding the military is coming at a time when Russia is actually cutting their military spending (because they’re seeing that agitprop campaigns are more effective than any direct military assault against the US ever could be). Get the US to spend itself into a stupor and the economic situation here gets dire as Trump and the GOP screw the nation for generations to come.

FBI’s Russian-influence probe includes a look at far-right news sites

WASHINGTON

Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say.

Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as “bots,” to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said.

The bots’ end products were largely millions of Twitter and Facebook posts carrying links to stories on conservative internet sites such as Breitbart News and InfoWars, as well as on the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News, the sources said. Some of the stories were false or mixed fact and fiction, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the bot attacks are part of an FBI-led investigation into a multifaceted Russian operation to influence last year’s elections.

Investigators examining the bot attacks are exploring whether the far-right news operations took any actions to assist Russia’s operatives. Their participation, however, wasn’t necessary for the bots to amplify their news through Twitter and Facebook.

It’s hard to define fake news. The context here is news the democrats don’t like. When the msm keep pushing a narrative that portrays Trump negatively, such as calling him an isolationist that’s fake news. Improving bad and obsolete trade deals does not make Trump an isolationist, it makes him a progressive force for the American people. So every smear that Trump is an isolationist is fake news. The main stream media keeps calling Trump thin skinned, Trump is NOT thin skinned he’s combative, by definition he is nothing like thin skinned, it fits the media though because being thin skinned is weak, being combative is strong. Calling Trump thin skinned is FAKE news and the media knows it.

This is just hilarious. Breitbart News (the only one mentioned in the piece that I read, but I read the site itself, not bot postings on FB or Twitter) spreading “false or mixed fact or fiction”??? HARDLY. Breitbart knows any slight misstep or slip-up and they would trumpeted around the globe as false. And this, as opposed to non-bot TRULY Fake News from ALL corporate media sites,including McClatchy here, itself?? Oh, this is rich.

After watching Comey today folks it is clear to me (just as I preicted Trump would win, after the first GOP debate) that Comey is the snake in the grass…Think about it, he stated over and over today he could not comment on ongoing investigations. That held true unless the question was about Hillary, the DNC and the Russians to which he stated he could comment. Amazing. Someone needed to ask Comey why the DNC didn’t allow the FBI to protect the DNC computer networks….which were hacked, while the GOP allow the FBI to propect the GOP computers which were not hacked.

Definitely lied about her age at times.

According to wiki she was married at 15 then.

He is NOT a scratch golfer as he claims. He is, at best, a 12.

If he really wanted to help the miners he’d put together a subsidized retraining program for them.

But this is Trump so that will never happen.

Which Obama tried to do when he was “killing the coal industry.”

I hope you are right but I have difficulty seeing him lose the support of the GOP. So many are willing to LIE to cover for the stupid, many talk on Sunday against him and then hold their nose & vote whatever he wants. They will have to be voted out.

Things can change fast in DC. Once someone or something becomes a political liability past support will change quickly. The key is creating the appearance of someone being a liability. We are not there yet. But, you can be sure aides and advisers to congressfolk in the GOP are watching numbers and reading tea leaves.

You can’t really arrest 60M+ people.

I’m sure that Donald Trump and his cronies already have a template in place for this.

Because Constitutional protections apply only to pure-blooded whites, apparently.

re: #380 SteveMcG RN

Kellyanne and Co. are the perfect enablers for Trump. Remember when he didn’t bother building a campaign last year? He knew the Republican Party would do it for him. Now he knows that no matter what he does, Kellyanne and Co have his back.

Over time they’re arguably doing more harm than good though. Effective spokespeople are one thing and their distractions served him well during the campaign. But the team that once served him well has morphed into a menagerie of ever worsening laughing stocks while what he desperately needs is to actually accomplish something and rack up successes. His immigration executive orders are being struck down by the courts, his healthcare reform plans are an epic disaster, his proposed budget is a cruel joke and his campaign and administration have been revealed to be under a serious federal investigation for corrupt foreign influence.

Instead of an Administration on the attack I see a panic stricken group in full defense, circling the wagons and seeking to reassure a paranoid old man with the soothing presence of his daughter. Cabinet Secretaries are reportedly having a very difficult time getting their department staffing requests past the Administration’s purity tests and this dearth of expertise is going to blow up in their face at the first sign of crisis.

This is the problem with enablers in general, they can only insulate the enabled from the consequences of their actions for so long, and the ensuing delay only serves to worsen the inevitable fall.

re: #430 goddamnedfrank

Yup. Not that most of Trump’s supporters know or care about the provenance. They didn’t care that he used the America First claptrap. They didn’t care that Trump was pandering to white supremacists or throwing white supremacist symbols at every opportunity or hired white supremacists and bigots all over his admin and campaign before that.

This is who they wanted. And they continue supporting him, even as he’s lying about what he intends to do.
