This is funny, dailykos.com. When Trump showed up at Turning Point USA, someone put up the presidential seal, but modified it to give the eagle two heads and a set of golf clubs.

re: #42 Rightwingconspirator

So Sean Hannity has a secret hand puppet and his name is Gohmert.

Gohmert is everyone’s secret hand puppet.

Just tell him what to say and he will regurgitate it. He is incapable of independent thought.

Sadly, he keeps getting re-elected. His District is behind the Pine Curtain of East Texas, which is sadly a region of Jesus Freaks and mouth breathers, many of whom’s last words are “Y’all watch this shit!”.

People need to be in the streets striking for the Republic as they have done in San Juan. Puerto Ricans are showing how it’s done.

People with Democratic representatives and senators need to be burning up the phones to their representatives; if you can’t get through, call their local offices. (My rep and senators have my phone number blocked or something because I get disconnected.)

Pretty simple isn’t it? Starting an impeachment investigation does not mean that the Drumpf will be impeached. It just means that the Congress is doing it’s duty, based on the Mueller Report, to determine if high crimes and misdemeanors have been committed by this President and referring those results to the Senate.

That is the purview of the House. That is their job. Based on what we know, that is what they should do. The President has committed high crimes and misdemeanors, should be impeached by the House, the case should be referred to the Senate, and should be judged by John Roberts before a vote by the Senate.

Let the Senate decide

I’ve seen more than one pundit tweet that this hearing should have happened months ago, when the Report was still fresh in the minds of the public and national attention was upon its findings. Yet it didn’t happen because senior Dems worried if they were forced to subpoena Mueller, he’d either refuse to show up or he would show up but be totally uncooperative. Well, they finally did subpoena him and (surprise, surprise) the Bob Mueller who showed up seemed to radiate exasperation with the spectacle he was put through. Whatever value there was in this hearing was severely compromised by weeks of dithering and foot-dragging.

From a comment over at Daily Kos:

Notable is that the Secret Service members present- whose very job is to be alert and notice every detail of the surroundings of the president- said nothing. These incredibly dedicated women and men must be chafing at the fact that their charge is such a pathetic human being that routinely defiles the spirit of the office they are sworn to protect.

Cari Wade Gervin — a longtime political reporter who covers Tennessee news, politics and gossip site The Dog and Pony Show — has accused 59-year-old Tennessee state Rep. Bill Sanderson of “openly soliciting sex” and sending “sexually explicit messages and pictures to men almost 40 years his junior” while voting repeatedly in favor of anti-LGBTQ legislation.

Sanderson resigned today. He says he’s resigning to run his business, White Squirrel Winery, but Gervin claims that his resignation was partly in response to the revealing of his same-sex encounters.

And that’s it right there. Why do anything when Democrats are going to go after Democrats and Republicans are going to go after Democrats.

It took so long because Mueller didn’t want to do the meeting in public. And dragging the head of the investigation in would have been a disaster.

President Donald Trump, his company and three of his children must face a class-action lawsuit in which people claim they were scammed into spending money on fraudulent, multilevel marketing ventures and a dubious live-seminar program.

U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield in Manhattan ruled Wednesday that the case can go forward with claims of fraud, unfair competition, and deceptive trade practices. The decision likely opens the door for the plaintiffs to start gathering evidence from Trump and his company, including documents and testimony.

Schofield also dismissed federal racketeering claims, eliminating allegations that could have netted triple damages for the plaintiffs.

A group of four people claims the Trumps ripped off thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs by promoting two bogus multilevel marketing ventures and the live-seminar program that promised to teach Trump’s “secrets to success” in real estate.

I’m not sure what point you are trying to make. If the Democrats vote to impeach, in, say, January, the Senate will have to hold a trial in February or March, based on precedent.

Of course, The Turtle could try to extend that timeline and appeal it to the Supreme Court, but in any case, the Senate will have to vote before the next election.

Agriculture not taking enough of a hit from Trump’s tariffs, Mother Nature weighs in to hammer eastern Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle even further.

Irrigation tunnel collapse in Goshen County puts crops in jeopardy (Goes to the Casper, Wyo. Tribune-Eagle).

TL;DR version:

An irrigation tunnel collapsed in Goshen Co., Wyo. That caused water to back up in the canal, overtopping the banks and flooding eastern Wyoming farmland.

In addition, since no water can get through the tunnel, on the other side of it, 53,000 acres of Wyoming farmland and 55,000 acres of Nebraska farmland can get no water.

Governor Mark Gordon (R) of Wyoming met with engineers, water district managers from Ft. Laramie-Gering (Nebr) and Goshen districts, and others dependent on the irrigation system. (It stretches eighty-five miles through Wyoming and forty-five through Nebraska.)

Engineers say it will take two to four weeks to restore irrigation water beyond the collapsed tunnel, but right now is peak irrigation season. The tunnel is 14x14 feet and 100 feet below ground.

Once again, the press telling us how the rich are suffering.

They’re Not Middle Class, They’re Well-Off, and That Should Worry You

John Scalzi commenting on a New York Times piece entitled “What Middle Class Families Want Politicians to Know”

First, the NYT skews “middle class” near the top end of the income scale for their interviewees.

The New York Times last week ran a piece called What Middle-Class Families Want Politicians to Know, which featured interviews from a number of Americans, discussing their economic concerns and fears. The thing is, the large majority of the households represented in the piece have a six-figure income; while there is one fellow whose reported household income is $75k - $100k annually, the rest have incomes between $120k and $400k.

And, well. In terms of income, “middle class” has a specific meaning (at least, it does to Pew Research, whose definition I’m using here): It means you earn between 67% and 200% of median household income. In the US nationally, that’s between about $40k and $120k a year — which means that nationally speaking, all but one of the “middle class” households in this piece aren’t middle class at all, they’re above that. In specific cities and areas, that “middle class” range moves, sometimes considerably — for example, in super-expensive San Francisco, “middle class household income” is $67k to $200k, whereas in rural Darke County, Ohio, where I live, that range would be between $33.5K and $100k.

Germany always had the fallback position of a Grand Coalition of the two centrist parties, the Christian Democrats and the Socialists, but now they are not likely to gain a majority. The Liberal Democrats will not work with the Greens and the two fringe parties are still political pariahs, at least at federal level.

If they managed to turn the inherently damning Mueller report into “total exoneration”, just imagine how an impeachment without conviction will be spun…

Would that be better or worse than his going out on the stage and declaring that if the Dems had something on him, if Nancy could prove he’d broken the law, then they’d have impeached him by now? That the fact that they haven’t shows that he’s right, they’re wrong, and he’s done nothing criminal?

I agree the will is lacking, though I imagine I disagree on which side. There’s a strong case to be made for the man’s removal from office and it’s not really being made, it’s being drug along like an unwanted puppy by a party that thinks it doesn’t need the damned thing to begin with. That it can win next year on “the issues,” as though both parties are just disagreeing on how to achieve the same goals when the reality is the other party is trying to clear the way for America’s first dictator.

At this point I don’t recall the context or who was involved— it was so long ago — but I remember some talk during Nixon’s time that Agnew was his secret weapon against removal from office because if there was one thing that everyone agreed on — no one wanted Agnew as President.

The argument that others have made is that Pence doesn’t have Trump’s charisma, though his policies would probably be worse. Indeed, Trump’s domestic policies are standard Republican policies. Pence would not personally be a dictator or enrich himself at the public expense (probably) but his court appointments would in effect continue supporting new Jim Crow laws that would keep Republicans in office for the indefinite future. The question is whether the suburban Republican women would return to the Republican party if the face of the party is a boring theocrat like Pence instead of a raving misogynist and racist like Trump.

We have kids in cages, Trump’s openly racist attacks on 4 Congresswomen and his ongoing criminality and confirmed obstruction of Justice. People are either aware of this or not paying attention. So Trump’s increase in approval doesn’t suggest a problem with Democratic politicians, it suggests a problem with the American people.

It’s denial. Everyone wants to go on pretending that America isn’t full of racist, fascist fuckwits and their allies the “I don’t really care, do you” demographic. All the “if Democratic politicians had only done X at exactly time Y then all those invisible, decent Americans would be demanding Trump’s immediate removal from office” whining is just an exercise in gaslighting ourselves. Decent people who aren’t in self imposed comas would already want Trump removed.

But impeachment proceedings… Apparently, nobody paid attention to yesterday, because that’s exactly what they’d look like.

I hope the “just trust Mueller/Pelosi” types snap out of their silliness and pay attention to how the Puerto Ricans got it done (Hong Kong too…hell, even the anti-Boris-Johnson protests).

re: #21 Anymouse 🌹

People need to be in the streets striking for the Republic as they have done in San Juan. Puerto Ricans are showing how it’s done.

People with Democratic representatives and senators need to be burning up the phones to their representatives; if you can’t get through, call their local offices. (My rep and senators have my phone number blocked or something because I get disconnected.)

Here’s my worry about this all: The number of Puerto Ricans protesting relative to their total population was astronomical, but on top of that, it was a very well self contained demonstration just by the general size of PR itself.

Meanwhile, look at the large scale protests we’ve had in the US, city by city and across the entire country….and look how massively they fizzled despite the numbers. Even with the total numbers both in each city and total nationwide, they couldn’t come close to the amount of participation per capita PR’s did. This is on top of the fact that media did its whole damnedest to ensure that not only the number of protesters was downplayed by factors of at least 100 (turning literal millions of protesters into mere ‘thousands’), but did their best to ensure that whatever message sent was diluted, either through amplifying agent provocateurs, but also through sheer misrepresentation and mockery of the actual message itself.

We’re still at the entire mercy of a media apparatus that will ensure that the rest of the country sees a sideshow, no matter how many hundreds of thousands crush DC with protests repeatedly.

TL;DR - PR’s size and collective shared suffering made these protests much harder to ignore than anything we could do, and the history of our mass protests have been at the whim of adversarial media per always.

Meanwhile the Cult Of The Fetus will stop at nothing to interfere with a woman’s right to choose.

A doctor who has said he invented a procedure to “reverse” abortion has for years falsely claimed an affiliation to a prestigious US medical school, the Guardian can reveal.

Dr George Delgado, the medical director of Culture of Life Family Services in San Diego, claims to have invented a “reversal”, in which women are given a large dose of progesterone following the first dose of a medicated abortion.

Delgado’s assertions about the “reversal” procedure have been denounced as “unproven and unethical” in a statement from America’s largest association of women’s doctors, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. His work has been described as an “unmonitored research experiment” in an article in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Despite condemnation from the medical community, Delgado’s claims have been adopted by some Republican state legislators as part of a wider campaign to undermine women’s reproductive rights. North Dakota legislators recently passed a law forcing doctors to tell patients medication abortions are reversible, the fifth state to do so in 2019.

Here’s what I tweeted to Nancy Pelosi:

I am afraid that Trump’s re-election has been sealed. No matter who the Dem nominee is.

Even if Biden wins the nomination, who many think is the best chance to woo back those white working class voters who defected from Obama to Trump, because the base will abandon the Dems because Pelosi refuses to impeach Trump.

Pelosi is of that wing of moderate Democrats who came of political age in the 70’s and 80’s, when Democrats were being wiped out and to believe that Democrats had their best chance to be relevant by moving to the right (or appearing not to be too left wing). It’s almost a knee jerk reaction of hers to think that anything the progressive base wants it too radical and is going to alienate moderate or right leaning voters. In the past when Democrats have won the White House, enough of the base holds their nose and votes for Clinton or Obama, but then stays far away from the polls during the midterms to allow the “Republican Revolution” in 1994, or the Tea Party waves of 2010 and 2014, the latter two of which set the stage for Trumpism. In those midterms, the base was ignored on crucial issues like health care (Obama ditching the public option without ever really promoting it), and they’re being ignored now, and I fear this avoidance of impeaching Trump will have the same result.

More deflection from Trump criminal misconduct.

Claim to be the law and order guy, while you’re breaking law and order daily.

Never mind that death penalty cases are far more costly than life incarceration without parole. We’ve repeatedly seen that defendants in death penalty cases have been exonerated of the crimes for which they were convicted. Racial discrimination also means that minorities are disproportionately convicted on death penalty cases. In a well known study out of PA, the odds of receiving the death penalty in Philadelphia increased by 38% when the accused was black.

He’ll be right there with Comey who sandbagged Hillary’s campaign 13 days from the election.

There’s really no other explanation at this point.

Trump and his ilk enjoy watching others suffer and enjoy coming up with ever more fucked up ways to MAKE them suffer.

The only thing I remember about Mike Mansfield is, on a test in jr. high, in the multiple choice under his name, I picked ‘baseball player’.

wasnt there a book about him and a steam shovel? wiki

re: #228 Mattand

At the end of the day, Muller is just another a Republican: willingly putting party and power before country.

His legacy is going to be that of the guy who had the best chance of preventing the US from becoming a dictatorship, but refused because he knows he’ll be safe from the damage Trump and the GOP are wreaking.

Seriously, eff him. He knows what Trump is doing and has basically become a human shruggie emoticon.

I take it you, like many, haven’t read his report.

I’ve picked through it.

Doesn’t change my view, though. Still amounts to be basically “Yeah, Trump’s doing all sorts of crazy shit, but whaddya want me to do about it?”

You mean besides the convictions and indictments he’s already gotten?

I’m still waffly on calling for impeachment because so many Democrats in the House aren’t committed, but Mueller did quite a bit, and has left the things to Congress that he had to leave. It is not his fault that he was operating under the control of the people who he was investigating. It’s not his fault that McConnell keeps blocking security bills.

re: #196 makeitstop

Post = Watergate, Pentagon Papers = NYT

Pentagon Papers was both; Ellsberg wasn’t sure if either paper could be intimidated out of publishing so he wanted to hedge his bets (also, if the administration caught wind of it and rushed into court for an injunction, maybe they’d be so busy with one they wouldn’t have noticed the other)

The sheer amount of blind self-assurance and superiority from her is galling, and sadly all too representative of the current culture of the NYT newsdesk. It’s just….holy fucking shit.

Chuck Schumer

@SenSchumer
Democrats on the Finance Committee just voted to let Medicare negotiate for better drug prices.

But Republican opposition forced the amendment to fail.

I won’t stop fighting for this. 95% of Americans support this.

It’s time to side with patients, not big pharma the Republicans in the senate.
