From last string:

Anti-LGBT politician resigns after being ‘caught having sex with man in his office’

Wes Goodman resigns for ‘inappropriate conduct’

This happens so often it has to be the rule rather than the exception. IT IS THE REASON THIS SUB-CULTURE EXISTS. Public moralizing and gay-bashing, not to mention extremist conspiracy theories like Q-Anon and Pizzagate, are pure self-covering projection for a sub-culture that is built around, and FOR, perverts, pedophiles, adulterers, and closet cases.

It’s great that he’s supporting impeachment — hopefully more Republicans will follow his lead. However, if he really wants to help the country, he’d launch a primary challenge against Trump.

Right now the only primary challengers are people who only have integrity only when compared with Donald Trump.
- a governor who went missing to meet with his mistress
- a one term congressmen who skipped out on child support and won by under 1,000 votes
- a former VP candidate for the Libertarian party who IIRC basically sold out his party and effectively endorsed Hillary.

And swing voters who might otherwise vote Democrat. If there is just one mainstream candidates, almost all of the 54% who oppose Trump will vote Democrat and he will lose. Two mainstream candidates running against Trump risks splitting the anti-Trump vote again.

re: #43 Belafon

I don’t see any Democrats voting for Kasich. What this would do is give “principled” Republicans a way to vote against Trump without voting for the Democrat.

Outside of New Mexico where he got almost 10% of the vote as the former governor, Johnson got over 5% in 8 states, 6 of which Trump won by much more than 5% (ND, AK, OK, MT, WY). The two states that he didn’t win - Colorado and Maine - Johnson’s vote going to Trump would have flipped those states to Trump’s column.

There’s a decent argument to make that if Johnson and Stein weren’t on the ballot in most states, the vast majority of their voters would not have cast a ballot for either Trump or Clinton. And that’s typically true most years regarding most third party candidates.

re: #47 NO SMOCKING GUN!

It’s a bit more complicated than that, IMO. Assuming a Trump, Dem, Kasich race instead of a Trump, Dem race.

Some people wouldn’t have voted for anyone, but voted for Kasich (Net zero benefit)
Some people would have voted for Trump, but voted for Kasich (Trump -1, Dem 0).
Some never Trumpers who would have voted for the Dem, but vote for Kasich instead. (Trump 0, Dem -1).
Some Dem voters who vote for Kasich instead (Trump 0, Dem -1). Seems really unlikely there are many in this category.

Basically, if there are more die hard republicans who are looking for a way to vote against Trump without voting for a Democrat than never Trumpers who switch from the Democrat to Kasich. Basically, 2020’s equivalent of McMullin or (some) Johnson voters.

Very different times. And the GOP was legitimately split over the issue of tariffs and protectionism (funny that, just a century later). But the only states that Wilson carried with a majority were former confederate states. Only three other states were won with a majority.

1912 was much closer to what 1992 could have looked like had Perot not shown himself to be crazy. But the truth is, we’ve had very few elections in the US with viable third party candidates and they’ve been so very far between it’s almost impossible to say what effect they would have on a general election

I think the whole G7/Doral thing is not a miscalculation on Trump’s part, or even necessarily an attempt to get as much out of the USG as he can before he leaves, but rather a giant “Fuck You!” to his opposition, and a further humiliation to show his followers who’s boss.

Which is all the more reason it needs to be an article of impeachment. I think there should be several emoluments clause articles*, but we can narrowly tailor this one to go along with the abuse of office/power article relating to pressuring Ukraine, and the obstruction of Congress articles.

Now, to throw a monkey wrench into this. He supports a trial. That doesn’t mean supports removal. What if the GOP is coordinating their effort to move up the timetable?

The point was raised somewhere yesterday that Mulvaney’s ‘confession’ was staged in order to goad Pelosi into moving straight to an impeachment vote - so it would fit in McConnell’s timetable of wrapping it up by Christmas.

I doubt Peolsi would fall for it. She lived through a summer of Democrats screaming for her head and demanding her replacement for not moving for an impeachment vote back in August.

McConnell might have a timetable, but he’s not driving. Pelosi is. And in the mean time they admitted to what will probably be the first article of impeachment.

They’re getting desperate, and unless Kasich comes out and admits that they’re trying to force the timeline, people are just going to see a prominent Republican calling for impeachment. Whatever the motives, it looks like a win for our side.

lawhawk  Oct 18, 2019 • 1:05:41pm

re: #126 makeitstop

There’s a political motivation to get the impeachment done before the end of the year, because the GOP has a chance to recover and get someone else in there. But with Trump engaging in more impeachable offenses by the day, Pelosi can say that they have to keep investigating because every day brings another crime.

It’s a viscous circle. If you impeach now, and the Senate doesn’t remove, then Trump can “glide” into 2020 and his base will reelect him handily. Dems will be weakened, and the Republic will be fucked.

If you keep investigating, you piss off the Democratic party base, but the GOP would then be put on the record as the primaries get underway and people will see that they’re covering for Trump, instead of doing the right thing for the nation.

It means Trump continues to damage the nation in the short term (and McConnell keeps packing the courts), but it could stave off an even worse long term.

We’re seriously harmed either way, but Pelosi’s strategy appears to be to try and contain the damage as best as possible when one political party is a crime syndicate - the GOP.

There was a woman in Marblehead who was always presenting herself as a “poor, overtaxed, housewife”. Her name was Barbara Anderson and she played that like a fiddle for YEARS. She is best known for Proposition 2-1/2, the property tax referendum that was based on the law in California.

Most of her life, she was the poor homeowner and housewife, taxed for our sins. The conservatives in my state never shut up about it. She had a column in the local paper for years.

Near the end of her life, Barbara was interviewed by the local weekly on the North Shore. She mentioned, in passing, and without further comment, that she discovered Ayn Rand when she was younger.

That was it. The poor housewife thing? Phony. She was a stone cold Randian.

Bill Weld is no Randian. Not at all. But if you’re a Massachusetts conservative from the 1990’s and later, you’re probably a “street libertarian” in the same way that many leftists followed a colloquial “street communism”.

lawhawk  Oct 18, 2019 • 2:00:08pm

State Dept issues report indicating that 38 people are being cited for violations out of their investigation into Clinton’s emails.

But note the specific language here.

The investigation covered 33,000 emails that Clinton turned over for review after her use of the private email account became public. The department said it found a total of 588 violations involving information then or now deemed to be classified, but could not assign fault in 497 cases.

For current and former officials, culpability means the violations will be noted in their files and will be considered when they apply for or go to renew security clearances. For current officials, there could also be some kind of disciplinary action. But it wasn’t immediately clear what that would be.

The department began the review in 2016 after declaring 22 emails from Clinton’s private server to be “top secret.” Clinton was then running for president against Donald Trump, and the now-president made the server a major focus of his campaign.

Then-FBI Director James Comey held a news conference that year in which he criticized Clinton as “extremely careless” in her use of the private email server as secretary of state but said the FBI would not recommend charges.

We’re going to Friday night news dump this crap again? Seriously?

The State Dept went back and reclassified a bunch of documents after all this went down, and then tried to retcon that there was wrongdoing here. They then try to claim that there’s criminal wrongdoing, when none was actually found.

The GOP will never let this go. Ever.

That’s even as Trump used a server meant for top secret classified info to shield criminal conversations that indicated a quid pro quo was sought to get political dirt on Bidens while holding up military aid to Ukraine (among others). Trump family members use unsecured emails and texting apps to conduct official govt business, and nary a peep from these fuckers. The ongoing criminal conduct is excused, but the GOP keeps going back to this.

re: #183 lawhawk

The department said it found a total of 588 violations involving information then or now deemed to be classified, but could not assign fault in 497 cases.

So then we can probably reasonably conclude that 497 of the 588 violations were previously unclassified; and the remaining 91 were probably classified at the time?

2015 Tulsi

This tweet is illustrative of a dramatic shift in the winds. In 2014, she was strongly opposed to Putin and Russia. By late 2015, she was singing Putin’s praises while criticizing Obama. She also went completely silent on Twitter regarding Russia’s ongoing hostilities towards Ukraine. She has not tweeted about Crimea or Ukraine since 2014. She has also never tweeted about the Donbas region, or the Ukrainian Republics of Luhansk and Donetsk. These are areas where Russian-backed forces have been attempting to seize control for several years.

Oh, I agree. I think a whole lot of how our tax system works is fucked up. It’s better than the old days when you didn’t have withholdings and then had to take a loan out to pay your taxes.

The “free” e-filings I’ve seen only work if you’re under a certain amount or don’t have anything “special” like student loan interest payments… which, in this day and age, shouldn’t be considered “special”

My grandmother’s voting absentee. I had to look up some of the candidates. She wanted to straight ticket Dem. What was neat for me was a couple things- candidates I’ve met and our local Dem candidates are quite diverse. Two Indian Americans on the ballot. Not a surprise.

Tulsi’s reaction reminds me of what Gillum said about DeSantis. “A Hit dog will holler”.
Hillary never named her at all, and she was the one who hollered. Thank you Hillary, and when Tulsi has to go back and defend her seat, every Dem will appreciate what you have done.

In one way the big field has helped. Tulsi’s from Hawaii, which makes it hard to get a national rep, and in a smaller field she might have been able to do more damage.

I think the thinking was that Hillary would clear the field in a rematch, and that Tulsi would be less vulnerable due to age and gender than Sanders, especially in a one-to-one race. But Hillary isn’t running and having the time of her life writing books and giving speeches, and relaxing after a long career. Tulsi gets no traction otherwise-she’s having to make her case in a field of 20, some even more out there than she is.

I thought I read that the State Department had been re-investigating the “email scandal” - large numbers of folks going over many years worth of correspondence with a fine-tooth comb - for something like two years or so. Two years (on the taxpayers’ payroll) - and still “found” the same basic nothing that was always what they were going to find?

Will this FINALLY put an end to the “But Her Emails!!!!” bullshit we have been listening to for the last three years or so? Probably no - the RWNJs are probably just going to claim that all the “evidence” of Hillary’s “crimes” has been covered up by The Deep State, and hidden away on the stolen server Hunter Biden sold to George Soros for a billion dollars…..

And there it is, the other quid pro quo. Notorious Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash would help Rudy and DiGenova and Toensing cook up dirt on Joe Biden. In return, they’d work with Trump to get US corruption charges against Firtash tossed. Firtash has been fighting extradition to the US on federal corruption charges since 2014.

The incident reveals how Giuliani’s work to dig up dirt on Democrats went much further than previously understood — and included an attempt to directly influence the actions of the federal government. Concerns that Giuliani was inappropriately involved in shaping and driving the administration’s Ukraine policy form a significant part of the intelligence community whistleblower’s complaint, which prompted the ongoing impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump.
Giuliani did not reply Friday to questions from CNN. The White House did not respond to request for comment. Kent’s lawyer declined to comment for this story.

re: #355 Jay C

While the thought of America’s Overrated Mayor (and his pals) in orange jumpsuits is certainly a pleasant one, I’m just wondering where Trump fits into all the Ukraine-corruption picture (aside from the obvious factor of being the ultimate beneficiary of Giuliani & Co’s dirt-digging grift and election tampering)?

I get the feeling that - despite Rudy’s under-the-table shenanigans - there is going to be (a la Reagan and Iran-Contra) just enough “plausible deniability” that The Orange Anus won’t be directly implicated in the Ukrainian smear-peddling scandal. Of course, it being Trump, he may just blurt out a confession at his next presser, so who knows….?

Naw, Trump is directly implicated from his phone call with Zelensky.

On the Trail of a Fourth Soviet Spy at Los Alamos

Three Soviet spies in the Manhattan Project are well known - Klaus Fuchs, David Greenglass, and Ted Hall. Fuchs and Greenglass were known publicly in the 1950s, but Hall’s story came out only in the 1990s.

Now more documents have been declassified, and Harvey Klehr and John Earl Haynes, who have done much to illuminate Soviet spying during that time, have found a fourth Soviet spy. They have found his path from the United States to East Germany and then Russia in 1952, escaping from possible arrest. Their article in the CIA’s “Studies in Intelligence” lays out what is known about him.

The spy’s name is Oscar Seborer. His story intersects with the FBI’s Project SOLO, in which they turned two members of the Communist Party in the USA. Their communications with Moscow seem to indicate that Seborer furnished information on the atomic bomb project, where he was a technician.

Seborer seems to have operated separately from the other spies, and his reporting seems to have been more to the GRU (Soviet military intelligence) than the civilian KGB. The two intelligence agencies have historically competed.

Klehr and Haynes have uncovered a fair bit of information about Seborer’s family, but not much about what he did at Los Alamos or what information he gave to Moscow. Maybe someone reading this knows something about the Seborer family or, as they called themselves in Russia, the Smiths.

Exclusive: Rudy Giuliani asked the Trump administration to grant a visa to the Ukrainian official Joe Biden pushed to have removed while vice president

The Independent had a story last week about this official:

Viktor Shokin: The inside story on Ukraine’s ‘very good’ prosecutor at centre of Trump scandal

David Sakvarelidze was five months into a new job as Ukraine’s reformist deputy chief prosecutor when a witness came forward with intelligence that would change the course of everything.

The witness, a sand producer in the Kiev region, complained of men extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars. […]

A search of the men’s apartments revealed a scene that looked like a comic heist: bags full of cash, diamonds and other precious stones. But that was not the only incriminating evidence. Documents seized at the time indicated the men appeared to have a connection to the top prosecutor in the land, Viktor Shokin.

Police found copies of Shokin’s passports, property registration certificates and even his licence to carry firearms. One of the two men, it transpired, was Shokin’s former driver who had subsequently climbed the ranks behind his boss.

I like the phrase “a scene that looked like a comic heist”.

Tulsi doing Tulsi (R) things.

So anyway, if I was Pelosi, I would get the caucus together and fire off an article of impeachment - just ONE - tomorrow on the G7/Doral thing. Let the investigations roll on everything else.

It needs no investigation, it needs no explanation. It’s blatant corruption and self dealing, and blatantly a constitutional violation. You can put the case to the Senate in less than four hours.

It puts huge pressure on the WH, which is already cracking hard. It gives the Rs time to bail out and disavow Trump early if that’s where the momentum is heading, and if not it gives every D candidate a talking point for the next year. And it gives up none of the investigative leverage. It would be nice to see a comprehensive trial on all the emoulments, but this one is so insanely blatant that there’s really not going to be a better chance in that lane.

Easier to pass, yes, make Trump mad, check… but I just don’t see taking away a few million dollars (depending on the contract, even a buncha million $) from Trump as a worthy legislative goal. It’s slapping a child on the wrist - “Don’t take that.”

The real point is to get Trump out of office. Pence is a turd, but he’d be slaughtered in the election. Trump is doing damage to the country every day, and picking a clear first round of impeachment - and making it clear that there WILL be more to come - moves removal forward.

Another one from Charlie Pierce: Donald Trump Decided Climate Change Won’t Be on the Agenda for the G7 at Trump Doral

It’s as typically idiotic for this administration* to decide unilaterally that the climate crisis will not be on the agenda as it is typically corrupt for this administration* to incarcerate the leaders of the western world at one of the president*’s lesser properties. How do they plan to keep the climate crisis off the agenda? By threatening to throw the offending representatives out of Doral? Delegates might show up in Greta Thunberg masks if that were the threatened penalty.

Trump’s Heist Undermines the G-7 (THUG) Act
or…
DOald Trump, American’s aren’t Deceived (Dotard) Act

do*tard
/ˈdōdərd/
noun

I’m sure Trump’s best buddy Little Rocketman wouldn’t mind us using it.

Between him, Kasich coming out in favor of impeachment, and the reports that more Rs are starting to realize that Trump ain’t all there, I’ll give it a couple of weeks before he starts losing a lot of support. Shit’s gonna break.

Yeah we might be closer to a removal than I thought

Excessive brain activity linked to a shorter life

One key to a longer life could be a quieter brain without too much neural activity, according to a new study that examined postmortem brain tissue from extremely long-lived people for clues about what made them different from people who died in their 60s and 70s.

“Use it or lose it” has dominated thinking on how to protect the aging brain, and extensive research shows there are many benefits to remaining physically and mentally active as people get older. But the study, published in the journal Nature, suggests more isn’t always better. Excessive activity — at least at the level of brain cells — could be harmful.

Nestor is moving quickly northeast. By tomorrow it will have crossed into Florida. It will then slow down and wander through the SE US until it emerges in the Atlantic.

Winds are not high… mostly rain from this storm.

So Tulsi assumed HRC was talking about her, then runs onto Tucker to whine. Feels purposeful so she can withdraw claiming to be the victim, then becomes the outspoken “liberal” for FOXiverse in the upcoming election. This gives her license to trash the real finalist.

There has since the 1940s, at least, a feeling among citizens that America is too strong and that the welfare of the world resides in counterbalance. And so there were some “well-meaning” spies in the Manhattan Project; Oppenheimer himself thought that sharing the science might nip an escalation in the bud.

I think that GG, Tracey, Mate, etc., Are those kind of citizen: America has become too big for it’s britches and needs to be taken down a peg. They never talk about domestic issues anymore—income inequality, health care—-because it’s more convenient at the moment to attack anyone right of Bernie on their positions about Russia/Trump (even though their own understanding of the Mueller Report is blinkered by some devotion to protecting Russia’s reputation).

The enemy of my enemy is my friend and what not, but I keep looking at all these GOPers starting to lean towards impeachment and I think: “You motherfuckers voted for him the first place. You guys don’t give two shits about the country, you want a sane version of Trump that isn’t obvious about all of the corruption.”

AKA, John Kasich.
