Trump’s photoshopped image disrespects all brave Americans who have served in our military, it disrespects the Medal of Honor, it disrespects the person who won the award he photoshopped over, it disrespects the dog, and yes, it disrespects the hell out of the American flag.

YUP! Won't be long at this rate.............Don't forget Paula (I HAVE THE UTMOST RESPECT...) Zahn returns Sunday! Just about every commercial beak there's a promo.

Trick or Treat. I usually watch Perry Mason and then switch over to ID. If there's one that looks

interesting I'll watch it after reruns start at 11. There was one on last night that was another 

take on the two young lesbians who were shot by some nut while they were at an overlook

at the beach. One was killed and the other survived. It was on another program, either ID

or 48 hours.  At the beginning I thought This sounds familiar.

Who cares about shots of another bombed out compound. Been there, done that. I want to see

video of BDaddy running down the tunnel, supposedly whimpering and screaming. And wasn't a

no exit tunnel kind of dumb? Maybe he should have consulted with El Chapo about tunnels.

Yeah, I'd seen that on another show years ago.

Trump judicial nominee cries at hearing after being rated 'not qualified......

 
 
 

Trump's latest judicial pick, Lawrence VanDyke, is an ideologue whose colleagues described him as 'arrogant' and 'lazy'

but he'll likely be confirmed anyway.

==================================

 

....Lawrence VanDyke, who Trump has nominated to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, was the subject of a remarkable letter from the ABA, which normally provides staid assessments of attorneys nominated for the federal bench. The ABA interviewed 43 lawyers and 16 judges, and received reports that VanDyke was "arrogant, lazy, an ideologue, and lacking in knowledge of the day-to-day practice including procedural rules."

The ABA letter also said that some people they interviewed raised concerns about whether VanDyke "would be fair" to people in the LGBTQ community and noted that VanDyke, when interviewed, "would not say affirmatively that he would be fair to any litigant before him, notably members of the LGBTQ community."....

Yes, Trump has had nine of his appointees rated "not qualified," which is on pace to be the most ever. ......

 

....The way this entire endeavor is playing out looks a lot like everything else in the Trump era.

A neutral group raises concerns about anyone related to Trump and the immediate response is to attack the group as driven only by hatred of Trump. It requires a worldview where every institution — the intelligence community, the news, the legal profession — is out to get Trump, rather than acknowledging any legitimate concerns

It allows people like Trump and VanDyke to frame themselves as victims, believing that any consequences for their actions are unfair.

Meanwhile, the GOP-controlled Senate will continue to confirm anyone Trump nominates, no matter how unqualified they are. .......

It was a number of years ago. IIRC, they were planning to go to the movies that night,

but it got too late and they went to the beach instead. Another of those random in the

wrong place at the wrong time crimes. Very sad.

ISIS Confirms Baghdadi's Death

And Names His Successor

....Islamic State on Thursday confirmed the death of its founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and announced a successor. The propaganda arm of ISIS also confirmed the death of another top ISIS official, its former spokesman.

In an audio message released through its central media operation, the group's new spokesman announced that Baghdadi's successor

is a man named Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi. He is a figure largely unknown outside of ISIS circles and is hailed in the message as "emir of the believers" and "caliph" of the group's alleged caliphate.

In the announcement, both Baghdadi and former ISIS spokesman Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajir were praised as "martyrs."......

Why the Impeachment Fight Is Even Worse Than You Think

".....Political scientists have a term for what the United States is witnessing right now. It’s called “regime cleavage,” a division within the population marked by conflict about the foundations of the governing system itself—in the American case, our constitutional democracy.

In societies facing a regime cleavage, a growing number of citizens and officials believe that norms, institutions and laws may be ignored, subverted or replaced.

And there are serious consequences: An emerging regime cleavage in the United States brought on by President Donald Trump and his defenders could signal that the American public might lose faith in the electoral process altogether or incentivize elected politicians to mount even more direct attacks on the independence of the judiciary and the separation of powers. Regime cleavages emerge only in governing systems in crisis, and our democracy is indeed in crisis.

Just look at the hardening split among the American people.........

when Trump refuses to comply with the House impeachment inquiry, he makes plain his indifference to the Constitution and to the separation of powers. When Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell argues that impeachment overturns an election result, he is doing the same. In the minds of Trump, his allies and, increasingly, his supporters, it’s not just Democrats but American democracy that is the obstacle. .......

Protecting the rule of law, defending the separation of powers and restoring constitutional order to Washington increasingly seem as though they will require the impeachment, conviction and removal from office of the current president.

At the very least, Americans of every political persuasion must demand that the administration take part in the impeachment proceedings, even if the Republicans in the Senate ultimately weigh partisanship over evidence in their vote. So long as the executive and legislative branches respect the procedures and powers outlined in the Constitution, we must all respect their legitimacy ....

If I had a client who was convicted by this guy i would immediately appeal on the grounds that the judge was incompetent and cite this very letter from the ABA.  What kind of country are the republicans creating?

President Trump caused widespread bewilderment today by tweeting that the Labor Department’s October employment report showed the economy added 303,000 jobs
 
— when the actual number was 128,000

America once led anti-corruption fight.

Now self-dealing Trump is kleptocrats' role model.

Before Trump, America pioneered laws and diplomacy to curb corruption, and other countries followed our lead. Now we're a global model for kleptocrats.

Smugglers are sawing through new sections of Trump’s border wall 

Using popular power tools fitted with specialized blades, cutters are defeating the steel bollards, opening gaps large enough for people and drugs to pass through, agents and officials say.

Wow. UK officials say the Trump admin’s requests for info to discredit the Mueller probe are “like nothing we have come across before,
they are basically asking, in quite robust terms,
 
for help in doing a hatchet job on their own intelligence services”.
