    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    .@BetoORourke: "People looking back at this moment will not be able to believe that a country with $21 trillion in debt, with the greatest levels of income disparity that we've seen since the Gilded Age, would find as its solution $2 trillion in tax breaks for the rich."

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Seth Abramson‏Verified account @SethAbramson 4h4 hours ago Jason Miller is infamous, in the Trump-Russia case, for having falsely told the country pre-election that Carter Page was *never a Trump adviser* when in fact he was the *first* official hire Trump ever made to his national security team, before even Mike Flynn or Jeff Sessions.

    Comrade Trump

    Shane Harris‏Verified account @shaneharris 6h6 hours ago McFarland now says Flynn may have been referring to sanctions when they spoke in late Dec. 2016 after Flynn’s calls with Russia’s ambassador. But this summer, McFarland denied to the FBI ever talking to Flynn about any discussion of sanctions between him and the ambassador. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Ted Lieu‏Verified account @tedlieu 5h5 hours ago Ted Lieu Retweeted Shane Harris KT McFarland lied to the @FBI and Congress about a critical event in the Russia probe. (Or as the @nytimes would put it, she made a statement that was false). Why do so many current and former @realDonaldTrump officials keep lying to the American people about Russia?

    Michael Cohen & the 'raid'....

    Rob Reiner‏Verified account @robreiner 22h22 hours ago If in fact(as it is now coming to light) that Michael Cohen did travel to Prague during the campaign to meet with Kremlin backed cyber experts to help coordinate Russia’s attack on the United States, Trump goes down for the count.
  10. The Company Michael Cohen Kept — “Trump, Inc.” Podcast Long before Donald Trump’s attorney paid Stormy Daniels or had his office raided by the FBI, a pattern was established: The associates of Michael Cohen have often been disciplined, disbarred, accused or convicted of crimes. ".....Cohen has for decades had close personal and professional relationships with many citizens of the former Soviet Union. He ended up as point men on Trump’s deals there and also turned up in the notorious Russia “dossier.” He has routinely been described as an indispensable man to Donald Trump. One indicator of that, according to The New York Times: President Trump is more agitated by what those New York prosecutors may find in Cohen’s files than he is by the wide-ranging investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller. Cohen, it seems, may hold some crucial secrets. What’s more surprising, perhaps, is the path he took to get to that point.....

    Trump vs. the Press/Media

    Rogue WH Snr Advisor‏ @RogueSNRadvisor 17h17 hours ago Trump/surrogates have been sitting on the Rosenstein (non)story, waiting to use it for a time like now, when they're FRANTIC about Kavanaugh & the midterms. The real question in my mind though, is why is the NYT doing Trumps bidding? ------------------------------------------------- -like the "anonymous" OP-ED doesn't tell us anything really NEW & just feeds TrumpWorld's 'deep-state' delusion?!
  13. 7 Questions We Would Have Asked Donald Trump At His Canceled Press Conference- President-elect Donald Trump promised a press conference Thursday to clarify the role he would have with his international business entanglements after he becomes president. He canceled. The transition team said Monday that Trump is delaying his "announcement" until January. Later that night, Trump took to his favorite medium to go around the filter — Twitter — and made some news about his plans: It’s been 140 days since Donald Trump’s last press conference. In the meantime, he’s tweeted 1,461 times. Why does this matter?Unlike other ways of getting messages out, press conferences hold public officials more accountable to the American people because they have to answer questions in an uncontrolled environment.....

    2018 Elections

    Cruz, O'Rourke clash in raucous Texas Senate debate Their first face-to-face showdown featured disagreements on everything from guns and taxes to Donald Trump. .......Cruz spent the debate seeking to squash the enthusiasm that has O’Rourke running close in the polls, online donors pouring money into his campaign and Republicans discussing a big-money rescue mission to save the seat for the GOP. Cruz tied O’Rourke to Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other national Democratic figures unpopular in Texas, criticized him as soft on drugs and labeled him a gun-grabber. With a raucous crowd cheering on both candidates, Cruz couldn’t resist pressing his case even when asked by the moderators to say something nice about O’Rourke, saying he admired the Democrat’s willingness to stand up for socialist beliefs and high taxes even though he knew it must be unpopular. “True to form,” replied O’Rourke, who had just praised Cruz’s parenting....

    MN Rep. Jim Knoblach ends campaign ahead of daughter's MPR abuse allegations story Republican state Rep. Jim Knoblach abruptly ended his re-election campaign Friday as MPR News prepared to publish detailed accusations from his daughter of inappropriate behavior toward her since childhood. The announcement came hours after an attorney for Knoblach denied the allegations in an interview. Knoblach, who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee, declined to be interviewed after being approached more than a week ago. In a written statement, Knoblach called the allegations "indescribably hurtful" and said he would work toward healing his family..........

    The Evolution of #MeToo

    I Revealed A Priest Abused Me 30 Years Ago. If I’m A Hero, Why Isn’t Christine Blasey Ford? -Ed Hanratty Guest Writer ".....I wrote a piece for HuffPost explaining how coming forward about that experience radically changed my life. My story has been featured on NBC’s New York City affiliate. I have been interviewed by multiple local newspapers. I have received well over 1,000 messages directly relating to my revelation, and all of them have showered me with gratitude and praise for my courage. I have been told that I have saved innumerable lives. I’ve heard that I am a voice for victims who are no longer here to share their tales of abuse. I have learned that I have inspired others to speak out about what they have been through. On dozens of occasions, I have been called a hero (a term I flatly reject, for what it’s worth)..... Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have been careful not to publicly question Blasey’s motives or reputation ― but they don’t have to. They have the entire right-wing echo chamber to do their dirty work for them. Ann Coulter’s twitter feed has transformed itself into a forum dedicated to Blasey bashing featuring the pundit’s patented petty and sophomoric digs at the professor and retweets from friends and followers offering the same disgusting vitriol. Conservative social media has whipped itself into a frenzy with attacks on Blasey’s family, memory, motives, professional qualifications and political beliefs..... ....unlike Blasey, I have never been lambasted for waiting 30 years to speak out. Not once. Quite the contrary: Everyone I’ve encountered has understood why it took so long. If you’re fortunate enough never to have experienced an assault, you might not understand how the human psyche can work to suppress traumatic experiences ― or the internal bargaining you engage in to keep yourself safe and as whole as possible in the aftermath of that trauma. What’s more, you probably haven’t come up against the wall of disbelief that so many women face in the aftermath of assault. And if you can’t understand what any of this is like or at the very least acknowledge how difficult all this must be, you’re simply unqualified to offer an opinion. ..........

    America's Gun Culture...

    Father Of Parkland Shooting Victim Sculpts Haunting Image Of Child Hiding Under Desk Manuel Oliver created “The Last Lockdown” partially using 3D printing. "Artist Manuel Oliver, who lost his 17-year-old son Joaquin during the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has created a striking sculpture depicting a child hiding under a desk to signify when a school is on lockdown. The statue is one of 10 being shown across the country during voter registration drives, specifically in congressional districts where politicians back the gun lobby. The title of the project is “The Last Lockdown.” he figures were created using 3D printers, an intentional reference to the debate over guns potentially being 3D printed. The desks are real school desks. “We want you to feel unsettled,” the project’s co-creator Sean Leonard said. Oliver and Leonard teamed up with Giffords, the gun reform group founded by former congresswoman Gabby Giffords. Giffords is a mass shooting victim herself, being left partially paralyzed after a lone gunman opened fire at a meet-and-greet in Tucson, Arizona, in 2011. In the run-up to the midterm elections, the new statues will appear in cities including Parkland, Florida, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Denver and Milwaukee. “It’s too late for us to save Joaquin from gun violence,” Oliver said. “But through art my family and I are making sure that we protect the rest of the kids out there.”,,,,,,,,,

    The Evolution of #MeToo

    #WhyIDidntReport inspires survivors in defiance of Trump "I never filed a police report and it took me 30 years to tell my parents," the actress Alyssa Milano tweeted. .......... Trump suggested that if those accusations were true, Ford would have filed a police report at the time. ...But thousands of social-media posters rejected that argument, some of them publicly revealing their private pain for the first time. While their reasons for not reporting were varied — fear of public shame, mistrust of authorities, a history of being victimized by members of their own family or a close friend — all were shared in solidarity with Ford. ... ...Patti Davis added. "Perhaps the aging men who are poised to interrogate her, unless they hide behind surrogates, should pause for a moment and think about the courage it takes for a woman to say: Here is my memory. It has haunted me for decades. It changed my life. You need to know about it now because of what is at stake for this country." .....

    Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents.
