One thing Democrats and liberals need to stop doing is buying into the right wing’s smears of prominent liberals, especially smears of women. Cases in point: Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.

Hmm, the underlying assumption behind that threat is that she knows who this mysterious “Q” person is. As in, she knows “Q” well enough to make threats like that.

I love it that these righties (assuming they aren’t all just bots) seem to take it for granted that, even after Trump’s spectacular failure at trying extort Wall money out of Congress via the astonishingly unpopular method of holding the livelihoods of government workers hostage - that in three weeks, this [incompetent shambolic shitshow] Administration is going to be able to somehow cobble up some sort of Cunning Plan that will Build The Wall, Own The Libs, Put Nasty Nancy In Her Place, and Make America Great. And all with (basically) the same political factors in play.
Except that three weeks from now, who knows what other foul turds are going to be dredged up from the cesspool of corruption that is the Trump Admin…..

WASHINGTON — President Trump met last week with a delegation of hard-right activists led by Ginni Thomas [R-Republic of Gilead], the wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, listening quietly as members of the group denounced transgender people and women serving in the military before accusing White House aides of blocking Trump supporters from getting jobs in the administration, according to three people with direct knowledge of the events.

The next shutdown will probably be very short lived, now that the Air Traffic Controllers and TAS agents know they can end a shutdown in a matter of hours. That should hopefully end the tactic of shutting down the government permanently. Trump could declare a national emergency, which would be blocked in the courts, allowing him to tweet rage at “activist judges.” Or he could just accept whatever package of border security enhancements are negotiated in Congress, then tweet he won a great victory, lying to his cultists that it funds more wall building. That seems like his best option to me.

It will come out at some point (the sooner the better) that Trump

a) borrowed large sums of money from Russian banks and companies

b) was unable to pay them back directly and had to cede interest and control of his operations to Russian interests, which then used them to for their own purposes (i.e., money laundering)

c) allowed these companies to collect large amounts of compromising materials on him that he does not want to see released.

The optics matter here especially since we’ve seen ample evidence of Trump losing his marbles. TBH I’m just not impressed by Bernie regardless. It’s easy for him to have the voting record he does given his state. And even then his voting record has some unpleasant stuff to it too.

re: #42 NO SMOCKING GUN!

The next shutdown will probably be very short lived, now that the Air Traffic Controllers and TAS agents know they can end a shutdown in a matter of hours. That should hopefully end the tactic of shutting down the government permanently. Trump could declare a national emergency, which would be blocked in the courts, allowing him to tweet rage at “activist judges.” Or he could just accept whatever package of border security enhancements are negotiated in Congress, then tweet he won a great victory, lying to his cultists that it funds more wall building. That seems like his best option to me.

from electoral-vote.com this am - a spin on the national emergency i didnt consider

…this is not such a bad option for him, politically. He declares the emergency, which he and his base can celebrate as “strong” action. Then, the Democrats sue, and the matter gets tied up in the courts for…who knows how long? If the President can stretch it out, then the situation could remain in stasis for months or years. It would be bad for him to run for reelection in 2020 with no wall, and even worse if and when SCOTUS ruled against him. However, those things would be in the future, and in the present he’d be a “winner” and “strong” and the government would stay open, so that he wasn’t taking any further political damage. If you don’t know by now what Trump’s choice is when he has a chance to goose his present-day popularity at risk of suffering major negative consequences down the road, you haven’t been paying attention for the last two-plus years.

I just saw a FB post from one of my wingnut friends that said “235,000 illegal immigrants have been arrested on criminal charges in the last two years.” I’m going to hazard a guess: They were arrested for … wait for it … BEING UNDOCUMENTED. Circular logic at its finest.

I was 6 years old when this happen so I really don’t remember it or the aftermath at all. My only exposure was the second episode of the terrific HBO series From the Earth to the Moon. It realistically captured the events leading up to the tragedy, the fire, and the aftermath. The closing scenes, some of the very strongest in the whole series, shows Frank Borman testifying before a Senate panel. He was asked what he thought caused the fire. He replied “lack of imagination”, basically saying that he, NASA, everyone never imagined such a horrific thing could happen. He closes his testimony with a plea to “stop this witchhunt and let us go to the Moon!”. His testimony and those words basically saved the entire Apollo program when the Senate was ready to axe it in response to the fire and the deaths. Very powerful stuff, indeed.

I went and read the whole piece: tbh, except for that one line about “Schumer and Democrats” it really doesn’t fix much blame. That said, though, it’s an unfortunately typical NYT thumbsucker. Of the four Senators quoted (Murkowski, Portman, Grassley and Warner), only one, I noticed, was a Democrat - which I guess counts for “even-handed coverage” by NYT standards. But, however, they did mention Nancy Pelosi in passing, so “balance”…

Alabama (down there racing Louisiana to the bottom) runs sales taxes on almost everything, including groceries, books, and non-Rx medicine. In my town the total is 9%. It’s a total of 11% in some communities.

Washington’s sales tax is up to almost 10%—in King County it is 10%—and it’s on everything except food. Coffee is food, but pop isn’t, but stuff like iced tea in a can is; anything that’s not carbonated. (I got a 12-pack that was all flat one time—I wanted to take it back and demand my sales tax refund.)

Also, since like the idiots we are, we “Got the State out of the liquor business!!”, not only has the price doubled, but there’s an over 20% tax on it and $3.83 a liter on top of that. (You never used to pay sales tax at the State liquor stores because…well…it was all tax.)

That depends on the interpretation of some obscure legal precedent. There have been claims that a sitting President cannot be indicted, in which case, he cannot, by definition, be arrested. However, this is an untested legal theory, as no one has actually tried to indict a sitting President; in previous cases, the President has been brought up on articles of impeachment before any indictments could be brought. In other words, we’re in uncharted territory now.

Pelosi Statement on Special Counsel Indictment and Arrest of Trump Campaign Advisor Roger Stone

Washington, D.C. - Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after Special Counsel Mueller released a seven-count indictment of top Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone, for lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstruction:

“The indictment of Roger Stone makes clear that there was a deliberate, coordinated attempt by top Trump campaign officials to influence the 2016 election and subvert the will of the American people. It is staggering that the President has chosen to surround himself with people who violated the integrity of our democracy and lied to the FBI and Congress about it.

“In the face of 37 indictments, the President’s continued actions to undermine the Special Counsel investigation raise the questions: what does Putin have on the President, politically, personally or financially? Why has the Trump Administration continued to discuss pulling the U.S. out of NATO, which would be a massive victory for Putin?

“Lying to Congress and witness tampering constitute grave crimes. All who commit these illegal acts should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. We cannot allow any effort to intimidate witnesses or prevent them from appearing before Congress.

“The Special Counsel investigation is working, and the House will continue to exercise our constitutional oversight responsibility and ensure that the Special Counsel investigation can continue free from interference from the White House.”

Yes, the top is written in third person even though it’s from her office.

The genus Lobelia comprises a substantial number of large and small annual, perennial and shrubby species, hardy and tender, from a variety of habitats, in a range of colours. Many species appear totally dissimilar from each other. However, all have simple, alternate leaves and two-lipped tubular flowers, each with five lobes. The upper two lobes may be erect while the lower three lobes may be fanned out. Flowering is often abundant and the flower colour intense, hence their popularity as ornamental garden subjects.[10]

Geoffrey Pullum has a great discussion of this in The Great Eskimo Vocabulary Hoax and Other Irreverent Essays on the Study of Language. The chapter, I think is called The Linguistics of Defamation. In American law, the truth is still a defense, and in dealing with public figures, it’s based as he says: “On the salutary principle that if you can’t stand the heat, you should stay out of the kitchen.”

At first I read Mitchell’s drivel as “…instead of wasting energy on things like fact….”

I hate like hell to be fair, but he tried to refuse it—turns out that’s illegal.
