Well OT but I got some good advice from a voter about how to talk up my candidate better. I was very nervous because he really put me on the spot but I thanked him nonetheless and he thanked me for volunteering. Just wish I was better spoken.

Don’t feel bad, when I started making phone calls last year for Clinton it took awhile to get comfortable. Ditto for knocking on doors. I am pretty nervous talking to people but it kind of helped by thinking about it as getting “in character”.

When I was younger, I wasn’t big on public speaking. Somewhere along the line I figured out the secret (at least to me), and that’s not to care about how I think I look or sound when speaking. I just tap into what might be called irrational confidence and go… something that allowed me to give a spur of the moment 20 minute presentation in law school on the status of the EU with no notes and no prep beyond having worked on the paper for the class. Also, turns out it’s a pretty good thing to have when going to court.

Not sure that works for everyone, but it’s worked for me.

Margaret Sullivan has Megyn Kelly’s number…

First, there was their flirtatious pre-interview banter when Kelly visited Jones’s studio in Austin recently…

Then there was the teaser for Kelly’s Jones interview that aired Sunday in which Kelly mildly reproves Jones, saying “that’s a dodge” when he utterly avoids her question about calling the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre of six adults and 20 children schoolchildren a hoax orchestrated by gun-control advocates. Nothing about this suggests that she held his feet to the fire…

And then there’s Kelly’s unimpressive track record in interviewing hard-to-pin-down subjects

And the perfect solution:

Here’s the way out: Kill the planned segment as a one-on-one interview, and use the material as one piece of a no-holds-barred investigation of Alex Jones and others like him. Don’t leave it up to Kelly, but pull in one or more of NBC’s top reporters.

If it takes a month to do it, so be it.

Odd terminology here as I’m not sure what “going nuclear” means for a minority party in the Senate. That phrase usually means that the majority intends to eliminate the filibuster. Is the Sen Dem aide suggesting Dems wouldn’t filibuster the AHCA? That seems hard to believe.

I guess we are going to find out how low Trump’s ratings can go.

We all know his backers have stood by so far, but they are wallowing over healthcare and some other Trump promises like jobs, the wall.

But mentioning he will be messing about with Social Security is a huge gamble politically. If there is one issue his base will abandon him on it is Social Security.

Suddenly his “rally” in Iowa may have just gotten more interesting. I hope the word is out by that time because Iowa will eat him up on Social Security. And if the Senate drops a stick bomb regarding healthcare…look out.

Did Sessions just admit they made the decision to fire Comey before they were even sworn in to office? I mean, that would explain why they didn’t bother discussing the alleged problems at the FBI with Comey.

Here in Middle GA we’ve had an increase in fentanyl-laced opioid pill-peddling recently and several deaths, one of those who died was a 19 year old male from a very prominent Macon family. Now, the media makes sure to post comments from doctors in the local rag everyday. Before this happened, they were only interested in hearing from RW pols. This just shows me that not all Americans are as important as others in this country. If I live to be 100, I’ll never forget how Reagan failed to act when the AIDS epidemic first hit.

2. develop cover story
3. take pictures of where everything is (thank the old gods for 1 hour photo back in the day)
4. get beer from the liquor store that sells to minors.

It isn’t.

AG is responsible for making sure that the rule of law is followed, but Sessions is ignoring his oath and put his loyalty to Trump above all else. He’s violating the oath he took, and is yet more proof Sessions should never have been confirmed as AG.

The least bad thing you can say about Sessions is that he shouldn’t have been confirmed because he’s incompetent.

But from there, it’s all downhill - committing perjury and continuing to lie under oath about his meetings with Russians.

He doesn’t know what his job entails, including defending against threats foreign and domestic, like the Russian cyberattack against various state election computer systems across the nation. That he doesn’t know any of this shows just how Trump has gutted functioning government within 140+ days of taking office.

Sessions almost lost it and Burr could see it coming. He said “I don’t want to answer your question.” (about whether he read the policy or had it showed to him about Exec privilege) and started to shut down physically…pulled his hands down onto his lap…Burr interrupted and scolded Harris and then Sessions was allowed to use up the rest of her time bullshitting.

It’s not like you can reasonably accuse Republicans of conspiring to cover their crimes up, since conspiracy involves advance planning that is completely unnecessary.

Republican cover-ups of crimes of other Republicans is just the natural order of thing, much like plants have tropisms where the roots go down and the leaves go up to reach sunlight.

I think the thing that’s going to stick with me is Sessions saying that Harris’ questions make him nervous. There’s a whole lot of fun I could have with psuedo-pop-psychology there (Southern White Guy, Strong Independent Black Woman, etc) but mostly because that’s the sort of thing that you wouldn’t expect to hear from a lawyer with a clear conscious.

Beyond that, I’m not sure that Sessions helped Trump’s case today. It looks like the decision to fire Comey was made before any of them took office, that the Rosenstein memo was used as pretense, and that they are trying to hide actions that may be criminal in nature.

So according to Session’s constant repetition, they came into office with a desire for a “fresh start” at the FBI. And they felt that Comey’s actions last year were an egregious violation of long-standing DOJ policy. BUT they did not take action until almost five months into the new administration, when they suddenly fired him without warning or decent explanation besides “We don’t like the way he’s running things.”

I’m curious whether previous Administrations worked like that, because most of the journalists commenting on it found it odd - assuming a privilege the WH did not assert.

Every other administration would have had several meetings before immediately agreeing to allow a cabinet secretary to testify in an opening hearing before an intelligence committee (while cancelling previously scheduled hearings on appropriations). They would have had a sense of the scope of questioning and made clear before the hearing that they would invoke the privilege as to specific areas of questioning - likely in a letter to the committee that was made public before the hearing. They likely would have met with the Chair and Vice-Chair, in private, to identify those areas and establish ground rules for the proceedings before sending that letter.

These guys, well, they’re not that smart and they’re not listening to the people smart enough to recommend doing stuff like that.

Margaret Sullivan has Megyn Kelly’s number…

First, there was their flirtatious pre-interview banter when Kelly visited Jones’s studio in Austin recently…

Then there was the teaser for Kelly’s Jones interview that aired Sunday in which Kelly mildly reproves Jones, saying “that’s a dodge” when he utterly avoids her question about calling the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre of six adults and 20 children schoolchildren a hoax orchestrated by gun-control advocates. Nothing about this suggests that she held his feet to the fire…

And then there’s Kelly’s unimpressive track record in interviewing hard-to-pin-down subjects

And the perfect solution:

Here’s the way out: Kill the planned segment as a one-on-one interview, and use the material as one piece of a no-holds-barred investigation of Alex Jones and others like him. Don’t leave it up to Kelly, but pull in one or more of NBC’s top reporters.

If it takes a month to do it, so be it.

We all know that Trump demands inappropriate loyalties of people in key positions. It’s how autocracy works. Sessions is so corrupt that he delivered that loyalty.
The Republicans have sold out the country, and must be driven from office (with votes).

Tonight, to show his appreciation for his loyalty to The Great Trump, a big ol’ Chocolate cake will be delivered to Jeffery Sessions and his wife so they can enjoy dessert.

Why a chocolate cake? Well, it’s a little signal to Jeffery about what makes The Great Trump happiest in times of political peril. It won’t be a true Mar-a-Lago chocolate cake, those are only for The Great Trump. It will be a good cake, probably something picked up from the local DC shopping mart with an in-store bakery.

But it is the thought that counts.

So, thank you Jeff Sessions for selling your soul for The Great Trump. He appreciates it, believe him. Enjoy your cheap chocolate cake.

How Many Lies Did You Count During Jeff Sessions’ Testimony?

America is reaching its bullshit quotient.

“…Democracy is helpless against this kind of contempt, especially if its primary institutions surrender to it without a fight, the way they did on Tuesday. To be plain, because of his continual assertion of an “appropriateness” privilege—which does not exist in the Constitution or the laws of this country—in order to avoid answering questions under oath, JeffBo should be residing in a holding cell right now until he changes his mind. (It’s very possible that Dan Coats and Mike Rogers should temporarily be his bunkmates, too. And the consistency of the testimony of all three men suggests a certain amount of, ah, coordination at other levels.)”

SESSIONS PRAISED COMEY’S HANDLING OF THE CLINTON CASE!

it’s ABSURD to insist this is why he fired Comey

Sen. Reed brought this up.

Sen. Reed Confronts Sessions With Flip-Flops On Comey Handling Of Clinton Emails
…During a hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) quoted Sessions’ responses to then-FBI Director James Comey’s announcement in July 2016 that he would not recommend charges against Clinton.
…Reed said Sessions had said “Comey did the right thing” in November.
“So in July and November, Director Comey was doing exactly the right thing,” Reed told Sessions. “You had no criticism of him. You felt that in fact he was a skilled, professional prosecutor. You felt that his last statement in October was fully justified. So how can you go from those statements to agreeing with Mr. Rosenstein and then asking the President, or recommending, that he be fired?”

He’d definitely have an opinion on this

President Donald Trump is facing anger and potential political blowback as his administration ramps up efforts to deport Iraqi Christians, a group he’d pledged to protect from what the U.S. calls a genocide in the Middle East.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents over the weekend detained dozens of Iraqi Christians and others to send back to Iraq. Many of them were picked up in Michigan, a swing state that Trump barely won in 2016 and the home of a sizable number of Christians from Muslim-majority countries who backed Trump during the presidential campaign.

“Trump’s move to deport Christians to Iraq stirs outcry”

I’m a Christian and have been one for over 50 years, and I have zero sympathy for the “c”hristians who seem to have thought that Trump would create a special carve out for Christian refugees. They didn’t know for whom they voted. They also don’t realize that if push comes to shove and Trump has to choose between himself and them, he will always choose himself. It’s their fault that they bought into his lies, and as far as I’m concerned, they’ll have to deal with their angst about this matter the best that they can. I hate that Christian refugees living in America are being treated this way, but the way for real Christians to have prevented it was to do their research on Trump before they voted for him. If they had, they would have realized that he has no long-term affiliation with any religious denomination.

Because Pence is also tainted. The Russian investigations won’t stop if Trump goes and Pence would have the problem. The best solution for the GOP is to keep The “Pred-i-sent” in place to sign the really horrible bills, let Russia bring him down as the sacrificial lamb, then bring in Pence as the squeaky clean true conservative to conduct business as usual. With lots of “Trump lied to us all” comments.

Wait, wait, wait just one COTTON-PICKIN’ second. How DARE you settle for a candidate that gives you only 20% of what you want. Even 80%! You must get the EXACT PURITY PONY OF YOUR DREAMS, or you must vote for the opposition. Get it RIGHT, libtard.

Talk Like a Firefly

By watching and comparing fireflies all across the country, scientists have been able to map out the unique flash patterns of male and female fireflies of different species. Dr. John E. Lloyd, an entomologist at the University of Florida, featured in the video above, was one of the first to do this extensively for North American species of firefly in the genus Photinus.

Using just a penlight and this photinus firefly flash signal cheat sheet based on Dr. Lloyd’s observations, you’ll be on your way towards speaking in a genuine firefly dialect (though your accent may need extra work).

re: #535 KGxvi

I just want to reiterate, Sessions not conferring with the White House on executive privilege before testifying is just gobsmackingly amazing to me. It is a blatant example of how ill prepared, ill informed, and unthinking this administration is. There is no sense of critical thinking or planning by the White House, they are basically flying by the seat of their pants. I seriously dread when we face a true crisis, a major earthquake, a flood, or hurricane, or something like one of our ships crossing into hostile waters. Things will go tits up in a heartbeat… and there’s no sense of serious leadership (or even the need for it) within the administration.

Covering up crimes is an instinct for Republicans. They don’t need to talk about it.

“FLORIDA”

Raw Story has an article that mentions Arthurs, the guy that killed two of his three roommates told law enforcement officials that Brandon Russell planned to use explosives found at the apartment to bomb nuclear reactors synagogues, causing widespread mayhem. Even after prosecutors informed the judge about Russell’s plan, the judge still said that Russell can be bailed out of jail. I read yesterday that the same judge said that Russell is not a danger to society.
