This is disgusting, even for a piece of shit like Trump. After his fortune is confiscated as restitution for his innumerable crimes, drop him in a war zone somewhere.

He really needs to have something serious to whine about before he dies.

This video from May 2017. Where #DictatorErdogan gave order to his security staff to beat up peaceful Kurdish protesters in Washington DC front of world’s eyes. Just think about what he is going to do to the Kurds in Syria.!

Note that Enes Kanter is a Turkish basketball player in the NBA, currently with the Boston Celtics.

This is why it’s so important to shift to the executive summary mode for Trump — he’s a lying evil sack of shit.

Any list of his specific outrages will be of semi-infinite length and prone to minor errors like all excessively lengthy lists. In the eyes of our both-siderist media, one typo on such a list cancels out thousands of real Trump outrages.

The projection he does is amazing. He’s a fucking moron but he’s convinced arguably 1/3 of the electorate he can do no wrong. I’ll say it again. Trump may have a lower support ceiling than most politicians but his floor is much higher. He will never be as unpopular as Bush was in 2008. He’s created a political cult of personality.

I’m confident we will defeat Trump but I want to defeat Trumpism too and I fear we’ll be fighting that for a long time. I’m equally apprehensive that something worse may rise from the ashes. Just as the Tea Party and Trump rose from the Neo Conservatives and Bush’s declines. The mainstream right is more xenophobic than ever. And you can see it in the people that they nominate for local offices. Some of us probably had local Republicans who sure we didn’t vote for but weren’t outright bigoted bastards.

Defeating Trumpism will require winning two presidential elections and the midterms for all eight years, and outlawing gerrymandering.

Leningrad Lindsey is nakedly engaging in witness intimidation. Republicans seem to have hit upon the idea that the way forward is to keep the public focus on the whistleblowers, accusing them of “hearsay” and questioning their motivations for coming forward. The hope being that if they can force one or both to back away from their allegations, if not outright recant such in order to avoid public exposure, then the whole scandal falls apart.

Meanwhile, the reality is that the scandal ceased being about the whistleblowers the moment Donny stepped out on the White House lawn and publicly asked two foreign nations to assist his reelection by “investigating” his opponent.

The past two years but last few weeks especially I find myself wondering what he will do next. I’ve never been a rah rah patriot but I do want my country to have a place in the world and lead by example on the issues that face the world. I think that’s why Trump angers me. We have a lot of issues we face as a planet. Trump has hurt our ability to be a positive force since he’s betrayed trust, credibility, & priorities. All Trump operates for is his own glory. That truly is what makes him such a malevolent force.

My best suggestion to the Dem leadership would be to publicly remind Graham that the right to face one’s accuser is generally understood to mean during a formal trial, that the accused has no right to face their accuser during an investigation. And since an impeachment inquiry is an investigation and not a trial, Trump has no right to know the identities of the whistleblowers any earlier than the day they appear to testify before the Senate. So unless Graham is committing the Senate to a trial and thus to a vote over Trump’s guilt or innocence, then this is an empty threat and will be viewed as such going forward.

Looks like Epstein’s oh-so-convenient demise has shortcircuited any investigations into his clients. Why else is Dershowitz feeling free to comment on Trump’s innocence instead of preparing a defense?

Yes. We can’t rest on our laurels even or rather especially if we win big in 2020.

I still remember how Dana SimmonsSimpson shut down her “I Drew This” feature in 2008 “because we’ve won!”.

I’m still sore with her for not bringing back her brand of political venom, either when the Birfers started making themselves known, or at least once Trump was elected and it was clear we were going to lose all progress going back into the 70s.

That’s what resting on your laurels gets you. We do it again and we’re going to see them wiping out the Thirteenth Amendment in word instead of just in fact.

Certainly appears that Trump is resuming his Nuremberg rallies. He clearly believes that impeachment is a nothingburger — that his administration with the help of the Department of Injustice and possibly the Supreme Court will prevent the House from acquiring any additional evidence.

Trump’s supporters cannot be dissuaded from their total allegiance to him and their belief that it is the Democrats who are guilty. I would not put it past Barr to manufacture evidence and suborn perjury to prosecute anyone who challenges Trump and the GOP.

Since the city (i.e. the Target Center’s owners) are in the best position to determine how much security for this rally will cost, they can not only set the price but also require payment up front from a known deadbeat (i.e. the Trump campaign). The Secret Service simply coordinates security with the city, they’re not responsible for paying the bills for Donny’s campaign rallies. And freedom of assembly does not convey a right to use a venue without the owner’s consent.

Meanwhile, in Hong Kong:

In her weekly press conference on Tuesday, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said that Beijing agrees the island should reach a peaceful solution to ongoing mass protests without Chinese intervention, though she refused to rule out that option.

“At this point in time, I still strongly feel that we should find the solutions ourselves,” Lam said. “It is also the position of the central government [in Beijing] that Hong Kong should tackle the problem on her own.”

“But if the situation becomes so bad, then no options can be ruled out if we want Hong Kong to at least have another chance,” she added.

“I cannot tell you categorically now under what circumstances we will do extra things, including calling on the central government to help,” Lam told reporters.

dw.com

It’s only a matter of time before the HK authorities appeal to Beijing to “restore order” - then they’ll declare a state of emergency, the PLA will roll in….and that’s that.

Sure, there will be some angry words and harsh memoranda. But that’s about it. Beijing will say they acted with “maximum restraint” and after a year or two, it’ll all be swept under the rug.

Leningrad Lindsey is nakedly engaging in witness intimidation. Republicans seem to have hit upon the idea that the way forward is to keep the public focus on the whistleblowers, accusing them of “hearsay” and questioning their motivations for coming forward. The hope being that if they can force one or both to back away from their allegations, if not outright recant such in order to avoid public exposure, then the whole scandal falls apart.

Meanwhile, the reality is that the scandal ceased being about the whistleblowers the moment Donny stepped out on the White House lawn and publicly asked two foreign nations to assist his reelection by “investigating” his opponent

That was the law in Germany until 1959; women could not conclude legal contracts without their spouse’s signature. And until the 70’s it was anchored in the German Constitution that it was the job of the wife to maintain the household and raise children.

there was a lot of ‘nuance’
a lot of it was ‘understood’ and everyone knew ‘how things worked’
way less workplace protections
and how exactly was a 22 yo pregnant woman going to fight back?

we’re looking at this with 2019 ideas of job protections and laws we mostly take for granted (except those dangerous ‘trans’ people above)

from cbsnews

“Two retired teachers who worked at Riverdale Elementary for over 30 years, including the year Warren was there, told CBS News that they don’t remember anyone being explicitly fired due to pregnancy during their time at the school. But Trudy Randall and Sharon Ercalano each said that a non-tenured, pregnant employee like Warren would have had little job security at Riverdale in 1971, seven years before the Pregnancy Discrimination Act was passed.

“The rule was at five months you had to leave when you were pregnant. Now, if you didn’t tell anybody you were pregnant, and they didn’t know, you could fudge it and try to stay on a little bit longer,” Randall said. “But they kind of wanted you out if you were pregnant.”

As the school board minutes show, no member of the Riverdale school board at the time was a woman. A full year after Warren’s dismissal, the Associated Press wrote that a recent New Jersey State Division of Civil Rights decision meant that “pregnant teachers can no longer be automatically forced out of New Jersey classrooms.”

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. Trump’s perfect call isn’t so perfect after all, and the Ambassador who was going to testify this morning has suddenly gotten the word from Trumpworld not to testify.

That’s not suspicious at all. Trumpworld realizes that the Ambassador testifying would be bad hours before he’s set to testify? Yeah, it’s a perfect call alright. Perfect encapsulation of Trumpworld criminal misconduct.

Meanwhile, in another corner of the Trumpworld hive of scum and villainy, Betsy DeVos may face consequences of violating federal court order on stopping going after student who have loans related to various scam schools.

Everywhere you look in Trumpworld, there are scandals and criminal misconduct. Everywhere. Every one of these scandals is impeachment worthy. Trump surrounds himself with crooks and criminals who do his bidding, all while enriching themselves and their cronies. That’s how Trump and the GOP operate.

And they project their crimes on Democrats, or excuse the crime by saying it couldn’t be a crime because it was done in public (yeah, it’s still a crime), or that you need to say magic words to indicate a conspiracy or corrupt acts (quid pro quo is not a Hogwarts inspired spell, but it does help indicate corruption and fraud in the inducement).

Oh, and Trump’s trying to slow walk the appeal on his tax returns just days after saying the SDNY should expedite their ruling. Trumpworld is playing their games, but the 2d Circuit should remind them that there are consequences to their malfeasance.

Trump reminds me of a guy who goes into a bar and tells the bartender that he’d bet him $100 to urinate into a cup halfway across the room. Bartender takes him up on the bet.

Trump proceeds to piss all over the bar, the bartender, everywhere but the cup.

Bartender laughs and smiles at the good fortune of making $100.

Trump says hold on a sec… goes over to a table and returns with $100. Bartender is like… why are you smiling? You lost $100. Trump’s like, nope. I bet that entire table over there $500 each that I could piss all over you and the bar and you’d smile.

Trump is Trump.
The GOP is bunch at the table.
The institutions of government, including the courts and Democrats, are the bartender.

Big picture folks - Trump continues to hold and accumulate power and the GOP continues enabling him. The bartender needs to smack down Trumpworld hard, and that means including use of inherent contempt powers to back up the subpoena powers.

Without those powers, the subpoenas are empty and while they add to the obstruction counts, it doesn’t get us closer to the information being made public in hearings that show just how corrupt Trumpworld is. Trump gets to continue his twitter tirades and media manipulation.

Trump Towers Istanbul

Khashoggi murder in Istanbul

Trump organizations’s connection to MBS and Saudis…

Erdogan seems to have a lot of leverage.

Well, to be objective: I read a fairly detailed account linked here yesterday about the background and timeline of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder (New Yorker?) - and while it is fairly obvious that Khashoggi had been marked for the chop*, that it happened at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul seems to have been just a random chance: his fiancee was Turkish, and lived there; and when he just walked into the consulate one day to ask for a certification of his Saudi divorce, Prince MBS’s thug-squad simply jumped on the opportunity, and offed him on his return visit. It might have happened anywhere, though having their quarry simply show up, on his own, at a diplomatic property certainly made it easier.
That said, it was obvious that Turkish Intelligence was all over this from the get-go (they have audio of the whole murder), and it’s way foolish to think that they wouldn’t leverage their knowledge to the max.

*though maybe not as literally as it turned out.

‘Trick of the Tail’ was a really good album - the one where Collins proved that yeah, he could really sing. ‘Squonk’ was pretty heavy for them, and I loved how they brought it back on the closing track on the album, ‘Los Endos.’

This clip features Bill Bruford as the second drummer instead of Chester Thompson. I got to see them on both runs - and while Chester’s a great drummer, I have a soft spot for Bruford from his work in Yes.

Musical Box is Genesis-approved! They were given a lot of the props that Gabriel actually used in live performances. That’s rare in the tribute world.

The only other tribute band I know of who got the thumbs up from the actual artist is a Who tribute (the name escapes me, Who’s Next, I think) who have actually been joined on stage by Pete and Rog.

“Lindsey and the lickspittles were repeatedly warned about the stable genius”

“By the way, it’s charming that Republicans are more stoked about defending the Kurds in Syria than they are about the defending the Constitution of their own country. And don’t underestimate the possibility that Trump timed his impulsive act to tilt the news cycle away from the burgeoning impeachment probe.

But I digressed. This column is about Trump’s long-signaled foreign policy ignorance. It’s admittedly useless at this point to wonder whether these fuming Republicans were alive in 2016 to heed the warnings; clearly, they switched off their brains and surrendered to the cult, shaming this nation for the foreseeable future. So the better question is, what are they prepared to do now? We’re stuck with a fake president who, yesterday, extolled his “great and unmatched wisdom,” claimed that “people are extremely thrilled” about his cut-and-run decision, and claimed that he hadn’t acted alone (“I always consult with everybody,” he lied), so what are the odds that outraged Republicans will convert their words into action?”

re: #242 Hecuba’s daughter

Question: is a Trump tweet considered an official policy to be implemented immediately or does the president have to go through traditional channels for the government to adopt a policy?

Yes.

Trump doesn’t know how to enact a policy. He thinks his say-so is enough, and he doesn’t know or care that his public utterances and tweets can be read as policy changes, even if they run counter to everything else the US has ever done.

Prior presidents would run policy changes before their advisers and have a proper rollout, but Trump doesn’t do any of that. He doesn’t listen to advisers, and the DoD was caught unawares of the change re: Kurds and Turkey.

So the Pentagon has to go back to Trump and see if that’s actually what he wants them to do, and until it’s done, everyone’s in chaos mode (because that’s what happens when Trump spews nonsensical ravings on hot spot issues that have deadly consequences) trying to figure out what any of this means.

We have a sociopath in the WH. None of this is good, and it undermines our security and standing in the world. No one will trust the US going forward, which Trump and his know nothing supporters thinks makes us great (again)?

Getting ready for services tonight. Shocked by what I heard when I was at Rosh Hashanah services with people turning on Booby Nincompoopo with a searing hot hatred for his Trump asskissing. And they despise Trump and want that motherfather gone. don’t even bring up Steven Miller with them! We’re talking lynch mob if they get their hands on him…

And this is before Trump upset the Israelis by a tweet abandoning the Kurds?? The Trump supporters I know still worship him and believe he’s a genius.

Question: is a Trump tweet considered an official policy to be implemented immediately or does the president have to go through traditional channels for the government to adopt a policy?

It would appear that the military thinks not.

(By the way, if it turns out that DT has alienated his allies talking about a withdrawal that ends up not happening, we good guys end up with a — very narrow — win. But we still need to impeach him to hang on to our future credibility.)

Betty Cracker makes an good point that relates to Rick Wilson’s statement at #196:

What I do know is that it took an absurd spectacle to bring Trump to power, and it will take another gaudy extravaganza to oust the motherfucker. Impeaching Trump for not giving up documents doesn’t seem like it would lend itself to a media bonanza, but maybe with the right stage management and compelling witnesses…

It’s a bit like having to wait for Trump to threaten Ukraine before Democrats could get people on board with the idea that Trump should be impeached.

She also has a Washington Post interview with Chris Murphy about how Democrats are proceding:

There has been some suggestion that Democrats would give up on the courts, and merely take all of this stonewalling and make it the subject of an article of impeachment for obstructing Congress.

But Schiff told me that Democrats have the option of doing both simultaneously, though he cautioned that no decisions had been made.

“I do not foreclose at all other efforts in parallel to make sure we fully find out all the facts, including court,” Schiff said. He noted that if the administration fought these efforts, “that will not delay us from going forward with articles of impeachment if they are warranted by the president’s obstruction.”

“We need to protect the country,” Schiff said. “We need to expose whatever wrongdoing has gone on. That work is going to have to proceed.”

Schiff noted, crucially, that Democrats could continue to fight for information in court even after the House voted to impeach — which could potentially lay the groundwork for additional articles later.

“If it is necessary to go down the road of other articles of impeachment, then presumably there will be a trial in the Senate,” Schiff said. “I don’t think there’s a court in the land that will preclude the Congress from getting the evidence it needs at trial.”

The Jewish Trump acolytes of my acquaintance (including my brother) have not lost their faith. Maybe if Netanyahu came out against him, they would reconsider. They believe Trump is a brilliant real estate developer and expert negotiator. They also do not see in those fleeing violence and death south of the border as akin to the Jews fleeing Nazi persecution and they really don’t care about deaths of those who are not Americans.

DangerMan  Oct 8, 2019 • 9:42:07am

re: #246 lawhawk

Yes.

Trump doesn’t know how to enact a policy. He thinks his say-so is enough, and he doesn’t know or care that his public utterances and tweets can be read as policy changes, even if they run counter to everything else the US has ever done.

Prior presidents would run policy changes before their advisers and have a proper rollout, but Trump doesn’t do any of that. He doesn’t listen to advisers, and the DoD was caught unawares of the change re: Kurds and Turkey.

So the Pentagon has to go back to Trump and see if that’s actually what he wants them to do, and until it’s done, everyone’s in chaos mode (because that’s what happens when Trump spews nonsensical ravings on hot spot issues that have deadly consequences) trying to figure out what any of this means.

We have a sociopath in the WH. None of this is good, and it undermines our security and standing in the world. No one will trust the US going forward, which Trump and his know nothing supporters thinks makes us great (again)?

he thinks his entire presidency is his tweets - a true and exact record of what he wants, thinks and has demanded/commanded.

he has no idea there is a whole mechanism of government out there and doesnt really care

if he tweets it, it happened

And it probably won’t matter what he says: the Republicans on the Committee will likely fall all over themselves kissing his ass and praising him for being such a Courageous Defender of Truth, Justice, and Donald Trump; while any “questions” from Sen.

OK: even though Jewish, I’m a little shaky on a large number of observances and beliefs, but one thing I think is pretty clear: “Atonement” on Yom Kippur is meant to be (and can’t be other than) a voluntary, personal offering: it can’t be bought and sold for money like excess airline miles….
