      Am I paranoid because they’re questioning Obama office holders instead of people connected to the Trump regime? They need to subpoena Trump’s inner circle.

    Good morning Ranman and congratulations on FIRST! What a beauty of a tweet — of course it is just our beloved #POTUS doing what he always does the way he always does it, shining like the sun in the sky, going out to use his strength and power and gifts to encourage inspire make it all better for all of us. Thankful for your wonderful uplifting greeting Ranman, always a sunbeam in my day. Thankful for NerdyWonka, ever onward in keeping TOD powered up and on the go.

        And let me add that, in large part due to the whole “Oh no! paid speeches!” crowd (a sentiment which was intentionally stoked by Russian bots to weaken HRC with the far left, BTW), we now have a sitting president who is profiting from the office courtesy of the tax payers, as well as privately and internationally, along with his children in flagrant fashion DURING HIS TERM!

        All of these finger waving BSers can have a “unity tour” rally’s worth of seats!

      They just won’t leave PBO alone. Instead of all of this Democratic negativity lead by Sanders, we need to start coming together for 2020. If not, we will lose again. I worry that Sanders is not a positive influence on the party. He is to self-centered. Why isn’t Ellison talking about how Sanders’ was manipulated by Putin and wiki-leaks, instead of criticizing PBO who did a lot of good for this country?

    Meanwhile, in Swamp Land which is the Orange Man’s administration…

    President Trump’s former national security adviser did not properly disclose payments from Russia and does not appear to have complied with the law, House oversight leaders said Tuesday after reviewing Michael Flynn’s application for a security clearance.

    “As a former military officer, you simply cannot take money from Russia, Turkey or anybody else. And it appears as if he did take that money. It was inappropriate. And there are repercussions for the violation of law,” House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz said.

    The news comes after the White House declined to provide documents related to Flynn that the panel investigating him had requested, according to a letter obtained by CNN.

    A White House aide disputed that the White House was withholding anything from the committee, saying they could not provide documents they do not have access to. The aide said that they directed oversight investigators to the appropriate agencies.

    No officials have accused Flynn of committing any crimes.

    I remember so well this trip to France and the trip to the NATO summit. I was glued to my TV set…..he still received full coverage on MSNBC at that time. EVERY leader wanted him to visit, and every leader wanted to be seen shaking his hand and talking with him. The world seemed so full of positive possibilities at that time. Thank you NW for posting Pete’s marvelous pictures. Right now I can see the beauty of a parliamentary system, so a new election could be called for…..not that djt would call for it voluntarily, but he could be forced to.

    Thanks to NW for keeping this open to us, and thanks to so many of you for keeping me informed. I have kind of retreated into myself these past few months. My precious poodle tore her ACL and had to have repair surgery. That necessitated confinement for almost eight weeks…and my worry over her. She is now all I have, and is particularly precious to me. She is recovering nicely, and I am feeling a little more like participating in life. I enjoyed my trip to Spain and Portugal. That was a real retreat from news of the world…..enjoying the sights and food and soaking up all the culture. As anyone who has suffered loss knows……and everyone does…..this “recovery” from loss of a beloved spouse is strange. One week I’ll be doing okay, then something will just kick me in the stomach and I am paralyzed…..then I’ll be okay, then paralyzed again. However, I do read TOD every day and appreciate each one of you. Also, like everyone else I have been grieving the loss of our wonderful PBO. Seeing him in public again, gave me a boost.

    About a week before he died, my husband asked me one afternoon : “Is President Obama still president of the United States?” I with joy answered, “Yes he is honey.” He smiled, sighed luxuriously and calmly went to sleep. I think of that often, and am glad that he didn’t see the debacle of djt.

      Carolyn, I am glad your husband and many of our TOD family who left us before that dreadful Nov 2016 did not see what our country stood by and let happen by not voting or not selecting HRC for president. I am glad that they are in peace knowing their last President was Barack H. Obama. I am waiting to wake up from this nightmare of 45.

        Exactly. Subpoena the requested documents and stop playing footsies with a treasonous administration. Of course, the WH wasn’t going to cooperate and Congressional Republicans aren’t going to force them to cooperate. This investigation calls for an independent party to ask tough questions and get to the bottom of Russia’s interference with our election.

      Just hearing this story … because I’m a dreamer, I’d like to think that Chaffetz announced he’s not running again, so he wouldn’t be vulnerable in going after Flynn and Trump and all the others. But, because I like to think I’m also not a total fool, I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Ivanka Trump’s clothing label has been relabelled ‘Vittadini”:
    12 year-old Adrienne Vittadini fled Budapest during the 1956 Hungarian revolution. Many Hungarian refugees went to Austria, Yugoslavia, Canada and U.S.A. http://www.refinery29.com/2017/04/151277/ivanka-trump-clothing-relabeled-adrienne-vittadini

    Former Trump Campaign manager Paul Manafort is facing a Connecticut bar investigation for acting as an unregistered agent in service of a foreign state and numerous other dirty deeds in service of his pro-Russia Ukrainian masters.

    Massachusetts lawyer J. Whitfield Larrabee submitted a 63-page complaint embedded below) against Manafort on April 17th. He had this to say about Trump’s campaign manager to ethics officials:

    “Mr. Manafort is a lobbyist for dictators and torturers. He has ice running through his veins. His own daughter described the family as living on “blood money.” It is not surprising that Manafort was Trump’s campaign manager at a time when the Russians were working to steal our democracy.”

    “In backing the leader of France’s neo-fascist party, Donald Trump also resumed his role as the Western political stalking horse for Vladimir Putin. Having received Le Pen in Moscow, where she denounced sanctions and sucked up to Putin, Russia’s authoritarian president has mobilized his entire propaganda apparatus to influence the French election…”
    “The stakes of the investigation into that illegal interference with the 2016 election keep getting higher, and may rise again with the French election. Nobody should maintain any illusions about who Trump and his cronies are, what interests they serve, and what kind of threat they pose to the future of the democratic world”. http://crooksandliars.com/2017/04/eve-french-election-trump-and-putin-still

      The right wing was absolutely terrified of PBO, certainly from the day he was Inaugurated with that incredibly massive crowd in 2009!. McConnell wouldn’t even pass jobs bills in a second Great Depression! Not even veterans jobs bills. Instead of increasing federal jobs, an approach to healing used in previous recessions much less dire, GOP fired a million government workers and then demonized them. Will never forget gross Scott Walker and the beginning of a new kind of evil breed.

        F*ck all these asswipes. Not a single one of them has any reason to be so stupid and rude. President Obama and his entire family accomplished more, and sacrificed more than any others in the history of this country. He is a private citizen now, and none of these tobacco-chewing non-entities get to have an opinion, never mind thinking they have any right to gas off about it. They can all go to hell tonight.
