Call in on CSpan says she’s a walk-away Democrat and starts in on media manipulating things. Uh huh.

She walked away from the party after the Civil Rights Act passed. And that’s true no matter how old she is.

None of them are really experienced criminal defense lawyers. I just can’t see their tactics appealing to anyone other than core Trumpists.

There’s still lots of trolls calling in as Democrats. As soon as Arrow downloads I think I’ll escape into the crossover episode of the Multiverse becoming the Universe and why is The Arrow series still around if Oliver Queen is dead. I’m sure he will come back somehow.

There have been several of these call in as “life long Democrats, but I just am having to leave because they are doing nothing but attacking our President who is doing such wonderful things for our country, yada yada.” Pardon me if I don’t believe a one of them.

This shit is hard to watch. Difficult to absorb without a primal scream. So why am I watching? Because I do not want to have to admit I did not watch because it was annoying or painful. Or I was too busy.

The price I may pay by watching pales to the price I pay as a citizen if we fuck this up.

I personally think we’re gonna stomp pretty hard on Trump, and he’ll either try to barricade the White House or attempt to flee.

As for keeping this from happening again, we’re going to have to do a lot of work fixing things that are broken, and keep electing Democrats. 2022 cannot be 2010.

The flip side of the warming portion of global climate change.

No more true “subtropical” climates, because at some point every year, the polar jet stream sags so far south as to allow polar air to reach about 24 degrees latitude.

You’d think that one would at least stick with Rs since they like things that only subtropic climates will be able to provide, especially since actual tropics will be death-to-humanity.

So, in the latest news regarding the 2019-nCoV virus (which for brevity’s sake, I will call it the Wuhan Virus):

Chinese authorities have advised people to stop travel into and out of Wuhan, the city at the centre of a new virus outbreak that has killed nine.

Those living in the city of 11 million people have also been told to avoid crowds and minimise public gatherings.

The new virus has spread from Wuhan to several Chinese provinces, as well as the US, Thailand and South Korea.

There are 440 confirmed cases, with the origin a seafood market that “conducted illegal transactions of wild animals”.

“Basically, do not go to Wuhan. And those in Wuhan please do not leave the city,” said National Health Commission vice-minister Li Bin in one of the first public briefings since the beginning of the outbreak.

Authorities also admitted that the country was now at the “most critical stage” of prevention and control.

bbc.com

This is a new coronavirus strain, with airborne human-to-human transmission. Obviously, at this point, it’s about containment…..and this is happening at the worst possible time, right during Lunar New Year, which is the largest annual human migration on the planet.

The mortality rate seems to be around 2%, mostly the elderly or the immunocompromised. At least it’s not something out of some apocalyptic sci-fi novel or film (say, 50% to 60% or higher) so I guess that’s some bit of good news; that being said, Chinese authorities are worried about the possibility of the virus mutating, which is a legit concern as viruses are notorious for that. And if you run the numbers, in a global pandemic scenario, you’d still be looking at tens of millions dead worldwide so let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Looking forward to information on how easily the virus can transmit to a new victim, and, how long a patient is contagious.
Hopefully a lock-down has a chance to tamp down the spread before people get antsy and move around.

Hi, all, Dr. Buzzkill here. Remember:

1. There will be no GOP rebellion
2. Trump will be acquitted
3. The good arguments of the Democrats won’t matter. Fox will chop up everything into crazy sound bites

Only hope? The GOP loses in November. That’s all I got.

I assume that the long game of the DNC is to call voters out in November to finish the job that the Senate was too craven and corrupt to do…

The National Weather Service in Miami has issued an unofficial warning for falling iguanas on Tuesday night due to the unusual cold snap that’s hit the Sunshine State.

“This isn’t something we usually forecast, but don’t be surprised if you see Iguanas falling from the trees tonight as lows drop into the 30s and 40s,” the weather service tweeted. “Brrr!”

“Iguanas are cold blooded. They slow down or become immobile when temps drop into the 40s. They may fall from trees, but they are not dead,” the weather service said

Dems are forcing these doomed votes — to subpoena Mulvaney, etc — for a reason.

The reason:

If they fail to get witnesses later, they will have put the most vulnerable GOP senators (Collins, etc) on the record opposing testimony from material witnesses

Democrats have pushed this doomed Impeachment trial for a reason: to get the entire GOP on record as having been derelict in its duty.

I understand that Politico must see this from all sides, and therefore never acknowledge this… but Democrats have no way forward with this impeachment as long as almost all Senate Republicans stand together and won’t acknowledge presidential wrong-doing.

But what happened yesterday, and especially last night was the House leadership was able to put forward, with specificity a huge amount of evidence, even evidence that the Senate doesn’t want to acknowledge, and force it into the public. McConnell will happily continue to ignore this… but everyone watching realized there was no response from the president’s counsel. No response at all.

There was a tacit admission, by Senate Republican leadership, and the Presidents counsel that other than the House’s submission of subpoena’s in a way the president didn’t like… there was nothing wrong with the impeachment evidence. It was sooo damning that no one knew what to say… beyond…

nuh- uh.

It isn’t — if you are “rich” and powerful. After all, Trump spent his life evading taxes and, so far, there have been no consequences. His supporters don’t care that he lied about releasing his returns. And the IRS seldom pursues these malefactors because it’s too complicated.

Robert Durst committed murder — O.J. committed murder — and the juries acquitted them. The wealthy can escape justice with few problems.

Here’s where I am: I will be pleasantly surprised if three Republicans vote in favor of removing him from office. But he has been impeached, and the GOP has shown that they don’t care about our democracy, only power. And we can win on fixing that.

I see what my freshman Congresswoman is doing on Twitter. She’s focusing on a lot of issues. The work of the House has gone on since impeachment. Mitch even admits this. He loves to brag about how everything The House has passed, he has prevented a vote on. The real do nothings are Mitch who has never met Democratic legislation he hasn’t wanted to obstruct and Trump who is a lazy piece of shit who spends his Presidency tweeting either bragging about himself or whining. When he goes, people are going to see what a well adjusted individual in the oval office looks like and hopefully give the GOP exile from the WH.

This is true, he has always been a shitstain. However, he’s a shitstain that’s tried to dabble in politics for over 30 years.

I know. We’re brought up hearing that this system is the envy of the world and what do we have? A President and his party only interested in protecting him. Trump hasn’t admitted he did anything wrong which is why it’s absurd to act like “Well they should impeach him but not remove him.” Trump will go to his death acting like it was a “perfect phone call” and we’ll be hearing about the perfect phone call when I’m Trump’s age too because right wing mythology doesn’t allow for admitting mistakes.

1) Ted Cruz might. But we’ve seen just as many ignorant SOBs in Congress with that magic (R). Gohmert comes to mind particularly.

2) Devin Nunes. And hell, the GOP fell in line behind Russia real damn quick once they realized Putin was someone they could rely on to consolidate their power at home. Not talking just about potential pres candidates, but the GOP as a whole.

3) This I might give you, but at the same time, we’re seeing the mass amount of self-enrichment in the GOP caucuses to where it’s obvious if they had the chance, they’d be doing the exact same as Trump, whether it was inspired by Trump’s successful mendacity or just because they’re already doing it in their own seats as current.

Trump is not unique, he is the absolute logical outgrowth of the GOP’s path of greed and bad faith. We need to remind ourselves this so we don’t kid ourselves that removing Trump is the end of it.

re: #154 Belafon

Down here in The Woodlands, TX. in 2016, I saw more yard signs for Beto than any other Democrat running for any office (including dog catcher) in the 20+ years I’ve lived and worked here. My area, while conservative, is a micro example of the country at large - white, educated women that absolutely hate Trump with a passion. The men are probably more 65/35 repulsed at Trump, but the thought of paying an extra 2-3% points in income tax will prevent them from supporting any Democrat. The women are hopefully going to save this country in November.

I bet if Trump was in the Senate chamber during the trial he wouldn’t be able to help himself from yelling at Schiff and Schumer.

Leaving puns aside, the answer would appear to be “non”. You know those French and their long-term employment deals: M. Bibendum is apparently still on the job at Michelin after 126 122 years.
