That’s the truth. Maddow pointed out the other day about how the NYT had all of the Butter Emails horseshit on page 1A, all the time and above the fold, and then buried her exoneration 16 pages in.

Below the fold.

I’d really like to know what the NYT has against HRC. Unless it’s a calculated effort to appeal to Fox News mouth breathers; “Hey, look, we hate Hillary, too!”

Which if that’s the case, it’s been a spectacular failure.

The Clinton hate has been consistent over at least 3 decades, that much is clear. The slavishness to the GOP line is a little more recent and just a little less consistent. It’s been there for sure, but man did it explode in the age of Trump.

The seat has actually been competitive, flipping between Dems and GOP, although held by Democrats since 2008.

People like Hyde I no doubt are why it’s a more Democratic district now. Republicans don’t know how to compete with voters uninterested in nativist bs. It’s why Northern Virginia went from being closely fought for by Gore and Kerry against Bush to being why Virginia has become blue.

This is Chris Murphy’s old district. I’m a fan of Senator Murphy. He’s a foreign policy buff who isn’t afraid to stand up to the NRA. Definitely someone I could see being a Dem leader one day in the Senate or a key cabinet official. Not sure about the Presidency but he’s good to me. Connecticut has an underrated pair with Murphy and Blumenthal, the latter who is a great voice on judiciary matters.

Well so far, Hyde is the only one of the five to provide Ballotpedia with both a picture and an “essay” - a sample:

Robert Hyde is an ardent support of our duly elected president, President Trump, and his agenda of renewing American Greatness. Robert believes the residents of northwestern Connecticut in the Fifth District deserve better than their current - and past - leadership. There is no one more better than Robert Hyde to represent CT-5.

Not only is he supporting Trump’s policies, but apparently, his grammar as well…..

If there is an assassination, or some similarly lethal example of Republican violence, this exchange will dispose of the standard default claim that it is the work of lone-wolf crazy people. Hyde is not some kook lurking in his mom’s basement, he is a player in Republican circles. We are dealing with common criminals at every level.

In 2012, he signed a $12M contract. In 2015, a five-year extension for another $60M. That’s enough money for a lifetime. Smart to get out while his brain and body are still functional.

Potentially. I’m just saying we’re not going to see too many guys playing long careers. I think they’ll take the first big contract and go with it. No judgment here. That game is tough on your body.

Absolutely. No judgment either way. It just seems to me that guys are only doing the two contracts at this point and then getting out. No judgment on them at all. My Dad always told me that he wasn’t allowed to play because of two early childhood concussions and that was probably the right bet. Besides music is a better bond anyhow.

Yeah it does look difficult. My one brother would only eat the lemon filling. It was our grandfather’s favorite too. My grandma when she wanted to treat me would make my favorite meal- breaded pork chops with mashed or fried potatoes and apple sauce and then lemon meringue pie for dessert. My other brother’s favorite is coconut cream. We also like Key Lime which I think came from a visit to my uncle in the Keys.

Whoever wins the nomination, and with luck the election, needs Kamala Harris as AG. The unprecedented disaster of Trump requires a massive, top-to-bottom clean-up, from ordinary graft and corruption to voter suppression to outright treason and war crimes. I think she is the one to do it.
Additionally, the IRS needs to move against the corrupt pulpit pimps. It is criminal that Republican shills can hide behind a religious tax exemption. If it were up to me, the religious exemption would be abolished entirely, with limited breaks for institutions that engage in genuine charity work.

Absolutely. I can think of no one better. I would also consider Klobuchar too. Both of these women have been district attorneys for large and diverse metropolitian areas. They understand how prosecution works and going after the corruption along with implementing some criminal justice reform is going to take someone who has experience in that on a big level.

Belafon  Jan 14, 2020 • 9:15:11pm

I found out today how opening up about our family can help others.

My two oldest sons are gay. My oldest came out his freshman year, and it eventually made its way onto Facebook (the only person I was truly worried about reacting wrong was my mom). So, it’s fairly common knowledge.

Yesterday, one of families we made friends with after I got out of the Navy all those years ago, who these days we tend to only keep in contact through Facebook, announced that one of their children is transitioning to a woman. Being Texas, you could tell the mom was worried about the push back based on her post, but I think the family decided it was time to come out. Happily, everyone in the replies was really supportive.

I found out from my wife that the mom had contacted her back in October. Because we had dealt with a son coming out as gay - which actually amounted to not having to deal with anything - she was asking for help. I’m not sure what my wife said, but I suspect it went along the lines of that we would be there if they needed us.

I’m glad it seems to be working out so far.

Your sons and their daughter are lucky to have you as parents. We talked about the unconditional love my late grandmother had for her family during the service. Neither me or my brothers are LGBT but I know that our grandmother and also our parents would still love us if we were LGBT and I think that’s why it’s so offensive when I see some conservatives act like “coming out” as conservative is somehow even close to coming out LGBT.

I will say that here in the DFW area, even here in Rockwall, family seems to be really important, even with all the churches.

I think this is an issue that a lot of people in general are getting more progressive minded on in more heavily populated areas. And it’s why I think I think you have people like Ben Shapiro who are so loud about their transphobia. The right lost the same sex marriage debate after Bush got re-elected with the help of people voting on anti-gay marriage referendums in several states that year. And we’re seeing them lose the bathroom wars too. They just cannot accept that not everyone is a cisgendered heterosexual. Of course, we still have a long ways to go in some places as you know.

I really think his rallies are his way to get all his resentments out and to let his supporters know he’s as miserable as they are about the modern world. Seriously though, his rallies are a fucking joke. I would feel bad who pays to hear Trump whine but there are people who go to a Trump rally and come home convinced this is the greatest American ever. As I said earlier, if you want to hear an old man whine about 2020, listen to Ben Shapiro talk about anything or read Charlie Kirk tweets, you can get that for free at least unlike paying 40 bucks for a read the transcript tee shirt and then never reading what was released nor figuring out that psst it wasn’t a transcript.

This is why Trump seems to connect so well with his supporters; they’re people who are deeply frustrated with not only modernity, but with their own personal failings in life. Trump is their outlet, their way of expressing that frustration and their resentments against everyone and everything they hold to be responsible for their misery.

Precisely. Trump pays people to wash his dishes, or vacuum and dust his penthouse suite, or go get food from the supermarket or make his coffee. Put a Mr. Coffee in front of him, and he’d probably think it’s the wonder of the age.

You know, I tell people Fargo is my favorite Coen Bros movie but it’s actually the Trump Administration because of how absurd everyone connected with them is.

The last Fargo involved a company that was having financial troubles in 2008 and accepted loans from a Russian moneylender. But it turns out that the Russians are not interested in seeing the loan repaid, they just want to use the company to launder their transactions…they gain access to information that the boss wants to keep silent, which keeps him pliable. Sound familiar?

Economic growth in Germany plummeted in 2019, according to the latest figures released by the Federal Statistics Office (Destatis) on Wednesday.

The growth rate is the lowest Germany has seen since 2013 and comes on the heels of news that German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government logged a massive €13.5 billion ($15 billion) surplus last year — reigniting calls for Berlin to spend more.

What are the latest figures?

- German growth for 2019 fell to 0.6% — down from the 1.5% growth rate logged in 2018 and significantly lower than the 2.5% rate in 2017.

- Despite the drop, the Germany economy grew for a tenth year in a row — the longest period of growth since German reunification.

- In 2019, Germany’s surplus amounted to 1.5% of its GDP, slightly down from 2018’s 1.9%.

Global problems and changes: The growth slowdown in Germany has largely been blamed on the trade war between the United States and China — which has hit Germany’s export-oriented economy hard. Political uncertainty with Brexit as well as the German car industry’s transition to electric power have also taken their toll.

And sooner or later, that’s gonna impact Czech Republic. Shit rolls downhill, after all.

Wapo

Americans who have been wondering why President Trump has taken the extraordinary step of trying to block every document from being released to Congress in his impeachment need wonder no longer. The new documents released Tuesday evening by the House Intelligence Committee were devastating to Trump’s continuing — if shifting — defense of his Ukraine extortion scandal, just days before his impeachment trial is likely to begin in the Senate. These new documents demolish at least three key defenses to which Trump and his allies have been clinging: that he was really fighting corruption when he pressured Ukraine on matters related to the Biden family; that Hunter Biden should be called as a witness at the Senate impeachment trial; and that there’s no need for a real, honest-to-goodness trial in the Senate

This whole thing is a verdict in search of a defense

I’m never enough
You bled me dry, using me up
Dissatisfied, and used
Another key to the empty spot in you
I’m sick as a fuck, I’m in my prime
What do you want? I guess it’s time to see
If you’re lost in hell, you’ll find no peace
Ooh, wade through hate and fear
I haven’t felt like this in years
Not much left, so uprooted
Fist clenched tight in the pockets of my hoodie
And I know where I need to go
But the voice of reason can’t say no
It’s in the eyes and heart
Just the latest psycho off the charts
That’s what you do best

A home like yours is upside down
Too much animosity
Nobody does it better than the enemy
A hope like yours won’t help me now
You can do your worst to me
At the end of the day, that’s what you do best
A home like yours is upside down
Too much animosity
Nobody does it better than the enemy
A hope like yours won’t help me now
You can do your worst to me
At the end of the day, that’s what you do best

I know, and even if I didn’t
I would lie so many would believe it
Stand up and resist the chains
Of all the people in belligerent sick restraint
I wasn’t enough, you bled me dry
Which way is up? Oh, you’re a lie
And a fake, I hope that truth is not too late
That’s what you do best

A home like yours is upside down
Too much animosity
Nobody does it better than the enemy
A hope like yours won’t help me now

Bloomberg:

[Did Pelosi Lose Her Showdown with McConnell?]

Jonathan Bernstein: “That’s what CNN’s Chris Cillizza says. I don’t see it. The political scientist and Washington Post columnist Dan Drezner is closer to the mark. He tweeted: ‘Pelosi got little from McConnell in delaying the transmittal of impeachment. On the other hand, during the delay some damning new documents appeared, Bolton said he’d testify, and now even the Trump White House expects witnesses will be called.’ John Bolton, one of Trump’s former national security advisers, was part of the White House foreign-policy team when Trump ordered military aid withheld from Ukraine as he pressured that country to investigate a leading Democratic rival, ex-Vice President Joe Biden — the topic of one of the impeachment articles.”

Overall, I’d say Pelosi may have marginally helped her cause, and it’s hard to make an argument that she harmed it.”

Yup. Flynn got a sweetheart deal for being first to flip on Trump. Now that Flynn’s busy trying to extricate himself from that deal, prosecutors should throw the book at the fucker and his son for engaging in all the criminal acts, up to and including being an undeclared foreign agent.

Mueller gave him the sweetheart deal to gain cooperation, but it’s clear that Flynn has no remorse and isn’t cooperating.

Currently in Russia, the President is the highest position then the PM is second highest. Basically, Putin’s proposed changes would mean transferring powers from the President to the Prime Minister to make the PM the highest position in Russia and the President will become the second highest. He’s doing what he did before; switching the roles so he (Putin) can become PM and then run the country for another 12 years (or longer) and by doing this he will still be the leader of Russia - but as Prime Minister, not as President. It’s the Putin/Medvedev Bugaloo.

Medvedev will still be a puppet and Putin will still run the country.

The thing is that the news is of the blockbuster variety, and the candidates could have responded that they’d need more time to digest the consequences of it, but that it appears that more Trump crimes have been uncovered requiring more articles of impeachment - plus direct testimony from those who are implicated.

It would be a forum at which eyeballs would be focused and get news out.

The whole point of Democrats running is to give the most corrupt and criminal admin in our history the boot. Every day we learn of more crimes. It never ends. It wont end until we vote him out with such numbers that it’s impossible to ignore and to overcome the EC potential.

The thing that happens with so many of these alt right influences is they take themselves way too seriously because they got enough people following them. As I said, I’m finally on twitter.

Worse than Watergate because of exactly this. Nixon definitely covered up Watergate and had no problem with the things like breaking into Daniel Ellsowrth’s shrink’s office but he wasn’t the mastermind behind it. I still have the opinion that Trump on 7/25 thought that Mueller’s testimony cleared him and he got arrogant.

Well the gun laws are being debated in our state capital which also happens to be the CSA’s old capital. What’s been interesting to watch the past ten years is Richmond and its suburbs transformation politically. Northern Va rightfully gets a lot of credit since we’re the most populated area but I will point out that Cantor’s old district is held by a Dem now and Dems have started to win there locally. This was an area vital to the GOP’s control of the state’s political calculus.

This is translated from Czech, via GoogleTranslate. Apparently, Putin has already chosen a new PM, Mikhail Mishustin, Director of the Russian Federal Tax Office.

Not long after Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced the resignation of his government, Vladimir Putin announced the name of the new prime minister. It should be the director of the Russian Federal Tax Office Mikhail Mishustin.

Nothing like detaining people for the fuck of it because a cop feels like things aren’t right.

What are the odds that this would be disproportionately applied to persons of color?

100%.

How do we know that this would be applied with discriminatory intent? Because we see how every law enforcement action has been done for decades in the same exact manner.

Heck, here in progressive NYC we have cops who disproportionately stop blacks for everything from jaywalking to panhandling to fare evasion on the subways.

Missouri, where the AG publishes annual reports on law enforcement stops shows that there’s discriminatory impact on minorities for years on end.

Might well be but I’m trying to better understand this stuff. I’m going to need it after I get my certification and if I do grad school. Besides it’s apolitical. I had a shitty past three months after losing my job and grandmother. Plus I realized that I need to go back to what I really like doing and that’s baseball, lit, music, & travel. Plus I don’t use my real name. If people want to hear me rant about politics, here is good enough or with close family and friends.

I’ve been thinking a lot about you, HW-that-was, in this season of unwelcome changes for you. About your love of family, for your grandmother and your niece, your fascination with family history and the stories of the past. You are a link — perhaps one of the things you might do is to make a record of your place in the chain. Write down the stories your elders told you: the story itself as you remember hearing it; your memories of hearing the story told, your memories of the person telling it. Doesn’t have to be polished or perfect, just get it on record, be it paper or pixels. You can go back and add notes about things you learn from other family members or in your research that add context to the events. Get it all down somewhere — others in the family might know the stories, but no one else has your memories or feelings about it. If you are comfortable recording yourself, you could do some of it that way; maybe get your parents to sit down and tell their stories with a videocamera running while they’re still here to ask.

Then tell the stories to your niece and others of her generation. She can go back and look at the written record later too, but she’ll have the memory of hearing it from you to strengthen the link.

You can keep adding over the years, but preserve what you know now because memory fades. That’s what I’m dealing with now, trying to remember things my mother told me, my grandmother told me. Wishing I’d made a lot of notes over these last four years while I was home with her, because she talked a lot about the past and I’m struggling to remember the details. All of us kids are in our 60’s now and senioritis is setting in. We have some cassette tape recordings of our grandmother talking that I need to get digitized, just hoping the tape will still play. We have several videos of my mom talking that we need to pull together and pass out copies. Hoping to get things to where her grandkids can go back and look at things in the future.

Family matters so much to you. Hope that — along with baseball and lit and music and travel — helps you along in this tough stretch of the trail.

Bush 43. They did a push poll asking voters “would it make a difference to you if you learned that McCain had an illegitimate black daughter”… figuring people would see the family photo and assume the adopted Indian daughter was his biologically from cheating.

Then Bush weaseled around the question with “no, I never said such a thing, why are you accusing me of spreading a lie?”

Wow, thanks for the kind words. Much appreciate it. I definitely wish I had taken some notes on what my Grandmother and other grandparents and the other older generations I’ve talked to. My belief is that even though I believe in thinking forward is the best path, we still can learn from the older generations. When I eulogized my grandmother, I really had to give some tribute also to her immigrant parents. There were some immigrants in attendence at the service- some of my mom’s friends and also my SiL and her family. I like engaging with people with different backgrounds. I’ve never liked to put myself in any box. I definitely have so called jock interests, nerd interests, and geek interests, and I try to learn more. Right now I’m reading a Ben Franklin bio. It’s been a very trying past year for me but I’m trying to get myself back on track mentally and honestly spiritually too even though I id as agnostic.

I’m just going to put this out there but W Bush himself never went after McCain’s daughter Bridget and neither did Rove but their surrogates did. What made Trump’s attack of McCain’s POW experience so ugly is that he did it just because he hated McCain but he insulted tons of POWs in the process.

Sen. Fred Harris “Everybody does better, when everybody does better”

it’s right there in the pledge

I still believe in the promise of Ellis Island. It doesn’t matter if you can trace your roots back to Jamestown or you just got here, what we’re supposed to be united behind as a nation are civic ideals. And those civic ideals are not limited to any one group.

There’s something very wrong with Stephen Miller. I just don’t get how a person can be so cruel. It’s like he gets off on telling immigrants “Ha, ha, you can never make it here.” And you know what, that does get to me on a personal level because of all the shit I do remember hearing.

Stephen Miller is a Nazi. Period. End of story. He’s no different from Dan Burros; I am sure he ignores his Jewish heritage and probably considers it a flaw that American Nazis will overlook because of his enthusiasm for their cause.

The thing about that, is that while it immediately invokes Germany, it doesn’t invoke Eisenhower for most of us because we don’t teach about Operation Wetback in US history.

I can at least grasp the notion of deterrence (although I disagree with it) if it is directed at adults. But when it is applied to families and used as an excuse to separate families or keep children in cages, then there is no excuse and nothing else behind it but evil.

It is also a personality type: confrontational, contrarian, domineering, spiteful, more interested in winning an argument than in establishing facts or solving an issue, and someone who takes delight in others’ misfortune, especially when they “deserve” it…

And the unfortunate thing is that it seems to be working. My immediate circle seems to have gone super fucking all-in on the ‘burn it down’ rhetoric and see tearing down the Dem party first and foremost the only way forward because apparently all the Dems are super scared of Bernie and his invincible revolution.

They really don’t like hearing he’s got a poor record of passing legislation. They try to shrug it off by saying that Congress is too moderate. But Barney Frank and Ted Kennedy, equally if not more progressive got bills into laws and besides if the Congress is too moderate, how does that help Bernie. The key to progressive legislation is the Congress not the WH.

A week before Germany, France and Britain accused Iran of breaching the 2015 nuclear deal, the Trump administration privately threatened to impose a 25 percent tariff on European automobiles if they didn’t, according to U.S. and European officials.

The U.S. effort to coerce European foreign policy through tariffs represents a new level of hardball tactics with America’s oldest allies and could result in the reimposition of sanctions against Iran.

They really don’t care about American consumers because a 25% tariff won’t impact them.
