time to start harping about stormy again???

how stupid is that?

:D

I suspect the only reason that Individual One has not joined Michael Cohen in the slammer is because he is the president.  Convict him of this and it will prove once and for all that he gained the presidency by criminal means.

Well trump certainly is no FDR,

so he's going to have to come out of that Oval Office sooner or later and face Justice in New York, where there will be no federal pardon for him.

If trump gets lucky, maybe he'll have his old friends Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein as roommates, or should I say cellmates.

The American legal system is so screwed up.  If he is re-elected, the statute of limitations could run out in Trump's favor.  They should be able to indict a sitting president especially if the crime in question is one that landed him in the Oval Office.

That's like saying you cannot take away a winner's gold medal even if he was found to be cheating because he is the winner and is immune.  So stupid.  It encourages cheating.

Quiet Trump Administration Rule Change Could Allow Federal Union-Busting Spree

 

.......has proposed a change in rules governing union membership for federal government workers that could embolden federal agencies to discourage staff from joining or remaining in their union.

The proposed rule, published in the Federal Register on Friday, would enable federal workers to drop union membership — and opt out of paying membership dues — at any point after their first year of membership. A rolling opt-out rule would mark a break from current practice, in which workers can revoke their membership at yearly intervals upon their anniversary of joining......

rule change request represents “part of an all-out assault on federal employees’ collective bargaining rights.”

“They are throwing out our contracts, enforcing illegal executive orders, and now trying to make it harder for workers to join and stay in the union,” Cox said. “Their ultimate goal is to destroy federal sector unions, and we will do everything in our ability to prevent that from happening.”

The proposed change comes amid a series of moves aimed at hollowing out federal unions.....

Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein are facing Justice in New York and their criminal indictments have nothing to do with running for president. trump could go the same route as his friends.

And I would never rule out how Eliot Ness got Al Capone. LOL

Well, remember that the Republican talking point for years has been that any and all government employees are just leeches on the real working men and women of this country. So anything that hurts them or thins their ranks is looked on kindly by the rank-and-file Trumpster.

Trump says he won't watch Mueller testimony on 7-24

 

"....No, I won’t be watching Mueller,” Trump said, speaking to reporters Friday afternoon as he departed the White House for a roundtable with supporters and fundraising event in New Jersey.

Mueller is slated to testify for a combined five hours before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees at back-to-back public hearings Wednesday.

Democrats hope the hearing will illuminate the details of Mueller’s 448-page report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, which provides an exhaustive account of the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia and nearly a dozen potential episodes of obstruction of justice by Trump.......

BUSTED: CNN’s panel of women defending Trump’s racism were literally the ‘Trumpettes’

 

.....On Tuesday, the network aired a segment that included a panel of “Republican women,”

seemingly or presumably selected at random, who defended Trump’s “go back” tweets

“These eight Republican women from Dallas don’t see anything wrong with President Trump telling four Democratic congressman to go back where they came from,” CNN’s Randi Kaye said .....

CNN failed to mention that both O’Briant and Coates had been featured in CNN segments defending Trump before. Though they were previously billed as “Trump supporters,” CNN simply referred to them as “Republican women” in this week’s segment. .....

The network also failed to mention that the women were part of a pro-Trump group called the Trumpettes of America 2019 Palm Beach Team, the Washington Post reported. .......

 

Both instances are a clear violation of journalistic ethics. The Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics instructs journalists to give viewers proper context and “identify sources clearly. The public is entitled to as much information as possible to judge the reliability and motivations of sources.”

Edward Wasserman, the dean of the University of California at Berkeley journalism school, called the lack of disclosure “a fraud on the viewer.”......

Mueller witness George Nader charged with transporting 14-year-old boy for sex, child porn

 

George Nader, president and editor of Middle East Insight. As an adviser to Abu Dhabi’s crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan,

Nader worked throughout 2017 with Elliott Broidy, a fundraiser for President Donald Trump, in a secretive lobbying effort to alter U.S. policy in the Middle East. ......

  • George Nader, who was a key witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, is charged in a new federal indictment with transporting a 14-year-old boy for sex, child pornography and carrying obscene materials.
  • Nader has been an advisor to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates.
  • Mueller’s report says Nader helped arrange a January 2017 meeting between Erik Prince and the head of Russia’s sovereign wealth fund, who reported directly to Vladimir Putin, as part of a purported Russian effort to build a link with President Donald Trump’s new administration.

One of the hallmarks of Nikki Haley's tenure of governor of S.C. was her firm anti-union stance.  Not neutral, but totally opposed to ALL unions.  Government employees in S.C. are prohibited from joining "unions."

John Kasich and Kris Kristie both cited destroying unions (in general) as hallmarks of their tenures.

Maybe they hadn't seen Norma Rae.  It's all about the rich getting richer and keeping the poor poor.  And they get support from the general public by painting these workers as undeserving deadbeats.

He doesn’t “give you the ability to ask any question.”

Your rights are explicitly elucidated in the 1st Amendment.

Thanking him for not restricting what you ask is totally f’d up framing.

 

And thanking him for access symbolizes the systemic corruption plaguing the profession.

I am surprised that Congress has not announced this as well.  The chance that Individual One has committed an impeachable crime is rather good.  Michael Cohen is in prison for this and he did not win an election or even go to bed with the woman!

Fact check: Trump says Rep. Omar 'proud' of al Qaeda

There is no evidence that Omar has said the terrorist group responsible for the 9/11 attacks makes her proud.

 

..... There is no evidence that Omar has said the terrorist group responsible for the 9/11 attacks makes her proud, and fact checkers have searched high and low for proof. Conservative outlets have pointed to a 2013 interview Omar gave in which she condemned terrorism broadly but argued that Muslim communities should not be blamed for the acts of radicalized individuals,

but nowhere in the interview does she express support for terrorists.......

... She continued: "I do not expect every time there is a white supremacist who attacks, or there is a white man who kills in a school or in a movie theater or in a mosque or in a synagogue, I don’t expect my white community members to respond on whether they love that person or not. And so I think it is beyond time … to ask Muslims to condemn terrorists.” .......

 

Trump also claimed “Rep. Omar blamed the United States for the terrorist attacks on our country, saying that terrorism is a reaction to our involvement in other people's affairs."

This too is a mischaracterization of the 2013 PBS interview, in which she and host Ahmet Tharwat mused that radicalization and terrorism are a reaction to war and invasion. American involvement in "other countries' affairs," Omar asserted, fuels radicalization. The conversation was a broader discussion on terrorism, and the remark is hardly a statement of blame......

Deputy AG Jeffrey Rosen said hush money probe “was handled by experienced prosecutors.”

But when asked by @evanperez if officials at main Justice played a role

and if DOJ policy that POTUS can’t be indicted was a factor,

Rosen said: “I don’t have anything to add.”

It’s answers like this that make me suspicious.

If Barr wasn’t involved in the decision, it’s in DOJ’s interest to say so.

But they haven’t.

Virginia Democrats vow to boycott event if Trump attends, invoke 'send her back' chants

"Democrats in Virginia's state legislature are vowing to boycott a ceremony in Jamestown later this month celebrating the 400th anniversary of representative government in the country if President Trump attends the event.

The leaders of the Virginia House and Senate Democratic caucuses issued a statement Friday night slamming Trump and maintaining they may not note show up amid reports that the president was expected to attend the commemorative session.

"We will not be attending any part of the commemorative session where Donald Trump is in attendance. The current President does not represent the values that we would celebrate at the 400th anniversary of the oldest democratic body in the western world," the Democrats said.

“We offer just three words of advice  to the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation:

‘Send Him Back,’” added the statement .......

Uh,  you do understand that the GOP Senate isn't going to convict Trump,  right?   

So what do you wish for the Dem House to 'announce'?     That Trump committed crimes?  DUH!!!!   

Most Americans already know that and the ones that don't,  don't care what the Dems have to say or what the evidence is;   Trump is their man,  period.     

Are you really that upset with Pelosi?    I ask because she is the one responsible for Trump not being impeached.

Do you want the House to vote again on impeachment, and fail to get enough votes again?   

That is all that would happen (which HELPS Trump).
