CNN has a piece up that does a nice job showing the utter chaos that the Trump administration has been, even though they don’t address it directly.

Since his last address, eight of Trump’s Cabinet secretaries have either resigned or been sacked.

Of the 22 Cabinet or Cabinet level offices, five are currently being held by people in an Acting role, including Mick Mulveny who is somehow pulling double duty as WH COS and OMB Director.

I don’t think we’ve ever seen that level of turnover in a cabinet, even in instances when wars break out.

re: #1 Charles Johnson

It tells you everything that Fox has nothing else to fill airtime except with these con men and grifters who are only on to tell Trump what he should be thinking.

It is truly something special to hear these fucknuts saying that you shouldn’t have health care. What they’re really saying, is that they should have health care, but everyone else shouldn’t (fuck you, I got mine). It’s their creed and motto.

And the right wingers regurgitate this stuff endlessly, even as most Americans realize that having health care is a good thing, and that when you provide health coverage, people are better off.

The GOP would rather have tax cuts that funnel more money to millionaires like Trump, or this faux hillbilly (and yeah, he’s a millionaire having conned everyone into thinking that this is anything other than an act).

Trump is sabotaging functioning government. That we’re not falling to pieces is “proof” to the GOP that we can do more of this without repercussions to the nation and our security, safety, and the economy.

The Robertsons are business owners. They probably realize that if there’s some sort of Medicare for All system, they’re going to have to pay their employees more because they lose the “offered benefit” of medical insurance.

That’s actually going to be an interesting element of the health insurance debate going forward - what do we do about employer provided medical insurance and the current tax incentives for both employers and employees involved?

(As a side note, I think I’d prefer a public option/choice system where Medicare is available to everyone, but employers can still offer private health care plans, and the choice is the employee’s on which to take.)

It’s the rich who can afford to send their children to private schools who preach that people should not have to pay taxes to fund schools.

It’s the rich who can afford the very best medical care who preach that we should put our faith in an deity to ensure our health.

It’s the rich who can afford to fly their daughters anywhere in the world who preach that that same deity hates abortions.

It’s the rich who afford to live off their accumulated wealth who preach against the government “giving” people jobs.

re: #17 Brother Holy Cruise Missile of Mild Acceptance

well, looks like people who voted for trump are learning they got fucked in the tax cuts. lots of tweets.

Every analysis of the TCJA found that the middle class would get squeezed by the tax scam the GOP was perpetuating. Every other group would see no change, or tax cuts. The middle class would get squeezed because they’d either see no benefit or get hit hard by the changes to the itemized deductions that middle class taxpayers rely on - mortgage interest deduction and SALT deduction and even the higher standard deduction doesn’t offset.

That’s how these folks are ending up paying more.

The GOP and Trump keep claiming that they’ve got a middle class tax cut proposal on the way, but that’s also vaporware. They’ll say just enough to keep their base motivated, but no one should trust them. Those cuts have to be offset elsewhere, and that means going after the safety net again. Count on it. Trump tried to claim a tax cut was imminent last year right around election day, and that fell flat.

They’ll try it again, and no one should trust these guys about taxes. ever

I think they’ve been investigating Podesta’s firm for a while. Mercury is new to me.

Skadden Arps has been part of the investigation for a while, though from a different angle - via Alex van der Zwaan and the London office, who lied to investigators about the contacts with pro-Russian Ukrainian Yanukovych.

But here’s my question: How many of these people are going to forget all about this and vote for Trump AGAIN in 2020?

Trump got 46% of the vote in 2016. There’s a portion that really won’t vote for him, whether they vote for the Democratic nominee, a third party candidate, or just don’t vote. Then there’s a solid group of people who will vote for him because he has the R next to his name and that’s what they do and/or because they’re in the Trump cult. There’s another solid group that will vote for him because, in their view, he’s better than the alternative. My guess is he will end up getting somewhere between 38 and 42% of the popular vote in 2020, assuming similar or greater turn out to 2016 and 2018. There’s just simply too many people in the “definitely not voting for Trump” camp per the polls for him to do any better. His only real chance at re-election is by depressing turnout, and I think we’ve reached the point where anything he does to drive down turnout will result in an increase in turnout.

Phil Robertson is a scammer lying to the hordes of people dumb enough to believe him and badge themselves as fools by buying his ridiculous merch.
google.com

Phil at Lousisiana Tech in 1967:

In his time at Louisiana Tech, Robertson completed 179 of 411 passing attempts for 2,237 yards. He threw 12 touchdowns, but had 34 interceptions.[10] It was thought Robertson had the potential for a pro career, but Robertson was more interested in hunting. Bradshaw once remarked about Robertson’s love of hunting, saying “… Phil Robertson, loved hunting more than he loved football. He’d come to practice directly from the woods, squirrel tails hanging out of his pockets, duck feathers on his clothes. Clearly he was a fine shot, so no one complained too much.”

Phil left without graduating after the 1967 season (though he received his degrees later). To me he is the most loathesome kind of chickenhawk, a bloodthirsty, privileged far-right religious fanatic and gun lover who ducked out (so to speak) when he had a golden opportunity to fight the godless commies for real. I piss on him from a great height.

Rick Wilson previews the Beeg Speech

With apologies to Pink Floyd, all in all, it’s all just a speech about the Wall. The Wall uber Alles Make America White Again crowd is freaked out by last week’s loss, and they’ve been crawling the walls like Ann Coulter on too many diet pills. Since his ignominious defeat last week at the hands of La Pelosi, they’ve been praying for a national emergency declaration so the president can deploy the military for a domestic law enforcement operation … you know, the kind of extraconstitutional statist action conservatives just love.

The Wall from the Pacific to the Gulf remains the singular, all-in promise of the Trump campaign. His nervous, “Call it whatever!” statements are a long way from the imposing creation made of the ground bones of immigrants killed by the laser-turrets and robot attack dogs so beloved of the base, but dumb springs eternal. Trump can’t let it go, even though his losing hand has shattered his Senate coalition.

The media will, of course, fall into one of the traps they so frequently do when it comes to this president. They continue to treat Trump as if his statements, proposals, and policy announcements have any actual weight or merit. These items are added to the Trump speech only at the last moment, and only as concessions by a president whose advisers have as much luck holding his interest on policy as they would teaching a dog Sanskrit.

You’ll hear some big, sweeping, popular ideas in the speech tonight. “We’re going to eliminate AIDS by 2030. We’re going to open a Whataburger on the Moon by April! Puppies and kittens for everyone!” They’ll sound normal, and even presidential.

Ignore them. These ideas and policies are meaningless tripe, the product of focus-grouped and rigorously crafted message-testing. They are the product of a man who sits on a throne of lies, written by the most mendacious public “servants” in recorded memory. Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, and Kellyanne Conway’s scent will be all over these policies. (Jared’s scent is of sandalwood and tightly suppressed rage.)

Bush had a few things going for him that Trump doesn’t.

Through most of 2003, Bush’s approval ratings were in the 60s. Even in 2004, as the election went on, he never dropped much below 46-47%. Trump would strangle a hooker live on Fox News for 45% approval at this point.

On top of that, Kerry wasn’t a particularly great nominee, nor was he particularly inspiring. Trump isn’t going to have the luxury of a less than stellar opponent in 2020.

All of the grassroots (and astroturf) groups that were involved in building the GOTV momentum in 2018 need to double down for 2020 at the state level. In most states it’s still the legislature that draws the lines and the governor has to sign off. If Republicans have a trifecta in state government, Dems essentially don’t get a seat at the table for how district lines are drawn for the next decade.

That is not what Kamala Harris said. It isn’t even what Bernie said. No one has said it outside of the conservative echo chamber.

Medicare isn’t free. We all paid into it. And we will all pay into any kind of a single-payer system. Call it the healthcare tax that becomes part of the tax system.

re: #54 KGxvi

Bush had a few things going for him that Trump doesn’t.

Through most of 2003, Bush’s approval ratings were in the 60s. Even in 2004, as the election went on, he never dropped much below 46-47%. Trump would strangle a hooker live on Fox News for 45% approval at this point.

On top of that, Kerry wasn’t a particularly great nominee, nor was he particularly inspiring. Trump isn’t going to have the luxury of a less than stellar opponent in 2020.

re: #45 HappyWarrior

Trump not having HRC or being a blank slate is going to hinder him imo. Not an attack on HRC but more so the Dem nominee won’t have the same years of right wing rage against her or him.

A reminder to all: it was the Swift Boat Liars that did Kerry in; the Republicans don’t need an HRC who had decades of verbal assaults against her; they can manufacture outrage on the spot and doom a candidacy because the press won’t hold them to account. The GOP tried the same thing against Obama but it didn’t stick (Rev Wright, Bill Ayers) because Obama had such charisma when his game was on. Most candidates don’t have that degree of personal magnetism. So let’s not assume that the Republicans or their Russian puppet masters won’t bring the Democratic nominee down — look at what’s happening to Northam, not due to some recent error but something that happened 35 years ago.

re: #2 KGxvi

CNN has a piece up that does a nice job showing the utter chaos that the Trump administration has been, even though they don’t address it directly.

Of the 22 Cabinet or Cabinet level offices, five are currently being held by people in an Acting role, including Mick Mulveny who is somehow pulling double duty as WH COS and OMB Director.

I don’t think we’ve ever seen that level of turnover in a cabinet, even in instances when wars break out.

the hell with ‘turnover’
he’s filled barely half the rest of the jobs…

. In fact, he’s put people in only 54% of the jobs he’s supposed to fill, and though Trump blames the Democrats for that, he hasn’t even made a nomination for 20% of the posts the Senate has to confirm.

re: #5 lawhawk

Trump is sabotaging functioning government. That we’re not falling to pieces is “proof” to the GOP that we can do more of this without repercussions to the nation and our security, safety, and the economy.

via electoral-vote.com

Though the Republican Party is ostensibly the party of small government, they definitely don’t like it this small. The problem is that many responsibilities and powers are delegated only to properly approved appointees. This has put a lot of underlings and acting appointees in the position of doing things they are not legally allowed to do. Consequently, Lankford (R-OK), et al. are worried that the Trump administration is setting itself up for (successful) legal challenges to much of what it does. For an administration that particularly relies on exercising power through deregulation, that’s problematic.

BREAKING: PayPal just banned me for no reason whatsoever.
This comes one day after Radical Left wingers published a fake hit piece about me, falsely accusing me of getting donations from an “anti-Muslim hate group”. The good news is, there is a lawyer who is going to take my case, and just like Gavin McInnes, I plan on suing all of the Left wing terrorists and tech tyrants who are trying to shut me down simply because I am a Conservative Jewish woman who speaks truth about Islam. I have nothing to lose anymore, so trust me when I say I will stop at nothing to make sure justice is served for the way Silicon Valley has disenfranchised me, falsely accusing me of being a white supremacist, a Nazi, anti-Muslim, a racist, a bigot, and every other smear in the book. I am banned everywhere. I am banned on Twitter for exposing Jew hatred, I am banned by Uber an Lyft, I am banned from Go fund me, I am banned from Venmo, I am banned from Uber Eats. Essentially I can’t even exist in society because the actual Nazis in tech and on the left constantly ban me because I post facts. How am I supposed to pay my bills? I can’t get a regular job because I have been accused of being a Nazi. Am I supposed to be homeless? I guess these people won’t be happy until I reach a breaking point and just die. Let’s be honest. That’s what these people want. They want me to die from all of the pressure and stress of not being able to live freely in America. They are evil and will stop at nothing to ruin people’s lives. Even the people from Right Wing watch retweet videos and articles posted by people who say they want me to commit suicide. They actively call for me to be assaulted and support people like Montel Williams who advocated for me to be tased to death simply for existing.
In the meantime, If you’d like to support my journalism so that I can just pay my bills on top of paying off some of the nearly $40,000 of credit card debt I’ve acquired from trying to pay for my investigations & videos which expose these people and their hypocrisy, you can do so here by sending me a check to this address:

All of the grassroots (and astroturf) groups that were involved in building the GOTV momentum in 2018 need to double down for 2020 at the state level. In most states it’s still the legislature that draws the lines and the governor has to sign off. If Republicans have a trifecta in state government, Dems essentially don’t get a seat at the table for how district lines are drawn for the next decade.

Keep in mind there have been states that are working on changing their district determinations. Ohio is one where there will be changes. It won’t be perfect, but it will be better.

Trump got 46% of the vote in 2016. There’s a portion that really won’t vote for him, whether they vote for the Democratic nominee, a third party candidate, or just don’t vote. Then there’s a solid group of people who will vote for him because he has the R next to his name and that’s what they do and/or because they’re in the Trump cult. There’s another solid group that will vote for him because, in their view, he’s better than the alternative. My guess is he will end up getting somewhere between 38 and 42% of the popular vote in 2020, assuming similar or greater turn out to 2016 and 2018. There’s just simply too many people in the “definitely not voting for Trump” camp per the polls for him to do any better. His only real chance at re-election is by depressing turnout, and I think we’ve reached the point where anything he does to drive down turnout will result in an increase in turnout.

I don’t think the Killian docs impacted swing voters but I do think the Swift Boat ads did and that’s a shame. As I said, I was a volunteer for Kerry’s campaign and here’s something a lot of people don’t know but the guys who were on Kerry’s actual boat swore by him as an officer. And even a lot of the guys who took part in the now famous Swift Boat ads had in fact supported him as recently as 1996 when he went up against Weld for re-election. I will never forgive the GOP for how they treated him and it’s why I while I appreciate that Rove and several old GOP times from that era hate Trump, they’re scum in their own way.

Kerry’s team made a lot of strategic missteps too. I think they thought that McCain would have stood up for Kerry the way Kerry had in the 2000 primaries when McCain got attacked. That was definitely the moment where I began thinking less of McCain as a man. I don’t hate John McCain but he chose his party over decency at that moment.

I’m getting real sick of FOX News, Duckheads, Evangelicals and conservatives in general saying Democrats want “free” healthcare.

Sick. Of. It.

That is not what Kamala Harris said. It isn’t even what Bernie said. No one has said it outside of the conservative echo chamber.

Medicare isn’t free. We all paid into it. And we will all pay into any kind of a single-payer system. Call it the healthcare tax that becomes part of the tax system.

Think of how much people spend a month now, whether directly or out of your pay where you work. Instead of going to a big insurance company, it will be going to the government. And there is a good chance it won’t be as much.

while what you said is true and accurate, it doesn’t scare people

re: #80 Hecuba’s daughter

A reminder to all: it was the Swift Boat Liars that did Kerry in; the Republicans don’t need an HRC who had decades of verbal assaults against her; they can manufacture outrage on the spot and doom a candidacy because the press won’t hold them to account. The GOP tried the same thing against Obama but it didn’t stick (Rev Wright, Bill Ayers) because Obama had such charisma when his game was on. Most candidates don’t have that degree of personal magnetism. So let’s not assume that the Republicans or their Russian puppet masters won’t bring the Democratic nominee down — look at what’s happening to Northam, not due to some recent error but something that happened 35 years ago.

I get the feeling some of the newer Democrats are not going to be as easy to bash as in the past. The newer Congress is already showing they are more in tune to all the conservative bullshit and tactics.

I think we are going to see a much more full of fight Democratic party come election time.

Everyone is going to be more in tune to what happened to bring us Trump too. We can expect there will be way more pushback from Democrats and their supporters.

If they can control the media message it will be a big help too.

Trump’s nominee to replace Brett Kavanaugh on the powerful D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals is refusing to say if she thinks same-sex relationships are a sin.

“Are gay relationships in your view immoral?” Senator Booker asked Rao.

“Senator, I’m not sure the relevance of that,” she replied.

Booker pressed on, saying the question was just as relevant as if she felt African-American relationships are immoral.

“No, I do not,” she replied.

“Do you believe they’re a sin?” He asked further.

“Senator, my personal views on any of these subjects are things I would put on one side,” Rao replied.

“So you’re not willing to say here that whether you believe it is sinful for two men to be married, you’re not willing to comment on that?

“Women’s issues?” Conway exclaimed. “I’m so sick and tired of the Democratic Party talking to all of us women from the waist down only. The waist up is where my eyes, my ears, my mouth and my brain and my heart are! And this is a president who has called them out.”

I can’t figure out if stunts like inviting Joshua Trump to the SOTU are unforced errors by the WH or done on purpose to provide whinging opportunities for RWNJs.

Host Hallie Jackson got right to the point, asking “is it hypocrisy to highlight bullying when the person giving the speech has deployed a litany of derogatory nicknames against his opponents?”

“This is a sixth grader, no sixth grader should be bullied,” Schlapp replied, but Jackson continued to press her question about presidential hypocrisy. Schlapp responded by claiming that it was conservatives who were the real victims.

“Conservatives and Republicans are being shut down at universities for trying to speak up and have their point of view,” she said, adding that she would much prefer “conversations of debates and ideas” about public policy. Demonstrating her own version of civility, she added “do we want to move to a socialist radical agenda to the left or have opportunity for all Americans.”

Now, Trump is reportedly preoccupied with painting existing sections of the border fence.

CNN reports a source said that in a meeting with surrogates who will defend his State of the Union address, Trump focused on wanting to spruce up border barriers with paint.

“Trump, according to the adviser, said he doesn’t like the way it looks, noting there is some graffiti on that section of the border fencing,” CNN reported. “The source had said Trump didn’t like the graffiti that was showing up on that section of the wall.”

“As Trump went from rally to rally, vociferously denying any dealings in Russia, his representatives, Michael Cohen and his associate Felix Sater, worked with Trump Organization lawyers and even Ivanka Trump to push forward negotiations to build a 100-story edifice just miles from the Kremlin. The fixers believed they needed Putin’s support to pull off the lucrative deal, and they planned to use Trump’s public praise for him to help secure it. At the same time, they plotted to persuade Putin to openly declare his support for Trump’s candidacy.

After this timeline was published, a spokesperson for Abbe Lowell, ethics counsel for Ivanka Trump, sent a statement. Noting that there was nothing wrong with considering real estate deals in Russia, it said, “Ms. Trump did not know about this proposal until after a non-binding letter of intent had been signed, never talked to anyone outside the Organization about the proposal, never visited the prospective project site and, even internally, was only minimally involved.” The extent of her involvement, the statement said, was to remind Cohen of the Trump brand’s high standards and to suggest architects.

Off topic!

ON DECEMBER 12, 2018, A four-person team departed from Russia’s Novolazárevskaya Base in Antarctica in the hope of reaching the frozen continent’s interior … by wind. That’s right: Ignacio Oficialdegui, Manuel Olivera, Hilo Moreno, and Ramón Larramendi, from Spain, traveled for 52 days by what is called a “WindSled” to the Fuji Dome—12,500 feet of ice, and one of the coldest places on Earth. Recently, they finally returned to their starting point.

This is the first time Trump has given a large-scale address unhinged campaign rally whereupon he’s entering a hostile audience in the House Democrats. And none of them have any fucks to give whatsoever. Nor do they care what the Chuck Todds of the world will say.

If Trump thinks it’s gonna be like all his other public rallies, or like last year’s SOTU, he’s in for a very rude awakening.

And it will hit him at his ego, a place that actually damages him badly.

We have a Janie’s House in Douglasville, Ga. Steven was here in 2014 and toured a Youth Village site and worked with them to make a Janie’s House part of their facility. He’s a good guy.
