    Breaking on Maddow tonight and to me a confirmation of something that has bee bugging me – the media’s acceptance of lies told to protect pence by trying to isolate him from his being complicit in Russian scandal:

    —– flynn did not lie to pence and the homegrown demagogue’s team because they already knew;

    —– meaning that pence lied about being lied to by flynn;

    Yes, I knew it and wrote about it here a number of times;

    —– now Maddow is reporting that Mitchell has reports that someone from the transition team has confirmed that all these scumbags have been lying about pence not know;

    —— so the reason they gave about WHY the fired flynn => and media accepted without question and have been repeating since is wrong;

    —– they are all liars;

    – like I said here before, I suspect that Ms. Sally Yates’ testimony was cancelled s because she was going to say that pence was in the room when she reported to this demagogue’s team that Flynn could be compromised;

    • April 28, 2017 at 9:53 pm

      I wonder why we did not get the report from Mitchell. Yes, these people are scoundrels.

        it seems that she just got the information late this evening and they decided to give it to Rachel Maddow because of her big audience;

        may be someone got angry about how they whole demagogue’s team has now been pushing that Flynn’s vetting was PBO’s fault

      After reading about Cantor-Fitzgerald, catching up with their story and their guaranteed healthcare for their employees for ten years, and being that this is a health care conference it seems even more despicable that Warren, Ellison and Sanders could not look at the importance of this opportunity and the appropriateness of it given President Obama’s expertise and the company that was hosting. I expect the Right to demonize everything. I don’t want any more friendly fire and trying to gain momentum with the racist, reactionary leftist babies by jumping on a bash Obama moment once again. Will it ever end? Also Stephen Colbert was doing so well and he blew it on this issue. Totally blew it.

    what Rachel Maddow said to her audience about the reason given by WH explaining WHY Flynn was fired;

    if anyone was wondering about why the demagogue’s team has now been pushing that Flynn’s vetting was PBO’s fault it seems we now have the answer;

    because Mitchell communicated that someone from the transition team itself gave her this information, if true, it may signal someone got angry by this new attempt to lie some more by assigning blame to PBO;

    since some of us do not watch a lot of tv, we must have missed noting that the racist sessions, who committed perjury, has been all over the channels today, perpetuating this lie. what ever the Russians have on this sessions must be bad enough for him to be willing to add more lying to his rap sheet ;

      Correction: Mitchell got the information from someone close to the investigation

      #FelonSessions is the GOP Hans Brinker with his finger in the #TrumpRussia dyke. He’s the human firewall at the moment. If they can’t find someone else who is also deeply Russia compromised, the entire House of Cards will collapse. It’s why they haven’t hired more staff and made more appointments – they can’t. They need insiders (Russia-specific) and they’ve run out of them. Tillerson wants to cut jobs at State by some 2300 jobs. How is that possible?

      What I find sad, is that McConnell, Ryan, Trump, et al, think that if they pretend all of this treason is ‘no big deal’, we won’t notice how they’ve destroyed democracy, and it’s all a show – no more legit elections ever because the own the machines.

    I found this fascinating, and a sign of hope for the turning of the cusp of the ages. You all are aware of my affinity for astrology, and lunar/solar phenomena -well, coming up on 10th May is the Full Moon called Wesak, sun in Taurus, moon in Scorpio, and is celebrated as the Buddha’s birthday. For Pope Francis to lead toward the path of harmonious Goodwill between these two religions symbolizes to me a pivotal stage where humanity may finally turn to fully face the new age of individuality, intelligence, higher mind and heart-centered effort for the benefit of all life forms. The Age of Aquarius is not fully with us yet, but what we are seeing, and are witness to with the current state of affairs, are the death throes of the remnants of the dark ages. So, let us each Anchor the Light, Keep Us the Heart, and hold fast to Truth and to the inherent goodness of the true human spirit. 🌞🌕❤️🙏🏻🌏🎶

    GE TODville.

    It looks like PBO’s engagement fee per appearance is equal to one-year’s salary as CIC.

    A nice, round non-negotiable figure that should do wonders to boost The Obama Center’s bottom line.

    Posted this on the previous thread, but since it’s relevant to the topic of this thread, am posting again.

    From the article:
    “Former President Barack Obama was asked during a talk hosted by A&E Network on Thursday how he dealt with frustration during his time in office.

    ‘For starters, by not having a Twitter account,’ Obama said, according to the New York Post.”

    snip /

    “Obama was reportedly paid $400,000 to appear at the 90-minute History Channel event, called a “History Makers lunch,” during which he was interviewed by presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin.”

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

    (Not sure if this conversation with Doris Kearns-Goodwin will be [or was?] broadcast.)

    And as I said to SWBG earlier, critics will just have to get used to PBO’s engagement fee because he’s going to be doing a lot of fundraising for the Obama Foundation. #MoneyDoesn’tGrowOnTrees (also repeat posting…):

    Good article excerpt about DJT at 100 days:

    Setting aside #Kremlingate (which is comprised of many “high crimes and misdemeanors”), it’s true that: “Impulsive, egocentric, and mendacious, Trump has… set fire to the integrity of his office.”

    And sadly, @ddale8 is spot on:

    just a reminder since this sat night is White House Correspondents Dinner:

    remember when PBO joked that his last WHCD would be THE LAST WHCD ….;

    well, with the homegrown demagogue refusing to show up, it might end up being the last WHCD attended by a POTUS that follows

    Getting rid of children’s school lunches is an example of what sociopathic abuser TRUMPUTIN calls a win:
    “The U.S. Department of Agriculture is preparing to ease school lunch regulations created under former President Barack Obama.”

    Repealing Obamacare and axing schools for needy kids I guess is a way for Trump to show those red state voters how much he doesn’t give a fuck about them. I am sick and tired of the Democrats bending over backwards and pleading with red state voters not to shoot themselves in the foot. If a person doesn’t want to be saved why should the money I give to my party go towards outreach to voters hell bent on suicide?

    Hello all and thanks for keeping TOD strong! I haves out not understand the outrage at Pres. Ibama’s speaking fees. If you’re a Repug, this is business and supposedly what is great about our country and #45. If you’re an upset liberal, why wouldn’t you want PBO to talk to people he could possibly influence? I never bought into the argument that you’re selling out just because you talk to someone. If they want to pay him and that’s his market rate, go for it!!

    So Trump has to have a big rally tonight to boost his fragile ego. Because after 100 days in office he hasn’t done a darn thing to make this country better, only worse. So the idiots that elected him will cheer for him and make him feel better, ( maybe I should not call them idiots ).

    I just do want to insert a personal word here, since we worry about each other. Many of you have probably seen the weather news about Oklahoma. Crazy dangerous weather from snow in the panhandle to dangerous 80 mph straight winds in Oklahoma City. Buildings that have withstood tornadoes for over 100 years have fallen, grave stones have been uprooted…..incredible damage. I want to assure you that I am fine. No damage, and I even still have my power, which thousands of people lost.
    We are in the middle of our spring arts festival, and tomorrow is the Memorial Marathon. It is dark and cloudy and about 45 to 50 degrees. Not April…..more like February.

    We truly are the weather mixmaster.

    I just have to vent and say that it is worrying that so many on the so called left are just as ill-informed as those on the right.
    Many are on Twitter ranting about PBO’s payment for his upcoming speech is payback for not prosecuting Wall Street bankers in 2009.
    They are totally unaware that there were no laws in place to do so,didn’t know about Glass-Steagall being repealed and about Dodd- Frank being enacted to remedy that.

    PBO was never condemning Wall Street irrationally but said they have to operate by certain rules and never professed to be a socialist like Bernie Sanders . He believed in the American system but that there needed to be rules so that all strata of society should have a fair shot at living a decent life and given access to the tools and means to progress and be the best they can be and that Governmennt should assist as it serves the people.

    If Dems are not, careful, they are going to alienate many POC and not capitalize on the opportunities this Trump Presidency may give them.

    Some of the journalists are just as bad with their comments and articles but their motives are quite different , I think.

      The selective willful amnesia is NOT by accident.
      They want total Control of how the Obamas should behave.
      They feel that Hey, It was them who made their Presidency possible (NOT)……therefore, they get to dictate their Private Citizen Lives after the WH. I am Not shocked.
      The sad thing is that These so called Progressives are Never able to ask themselves Who died and made Them Kings & Queens of The Obama Household?
      Focus, this is another way of Blaming Pres Obama for Nov 8th, 2016 election loss. The far Left must always find a Person to Blame. This is how they Don’t Focus, hence elections are lost.
