    I am really shocked that there are some people who are still trying to seriously analyze the contradictory pronouncements about what transpired between the homegrown demagogue and putin at the G20;

    Shouldn’t people know by now that most of these pronouncements are probably lies that will be contradicted within only a few hours or days?

    People should remember that we are dealing with two administrations that are not only corrupt to the core, but are also liars and pompous to boot.

    Each head of these two administrations wants the world to stop and notice how very important they personally are. they also want to control the media narrative.

    So my advice is that for now, people should just listen to these pronouncements with amusements but highlight and correct the obvious lies they have included.

    I am guessing that in a few days, most of these current statements will be changing (or information leaked) as putin and scoundrel#45 tries to look the most important in the world. scoundrel#45 might even be goaded into going on tv to contradict his contradiction of the people on his team.

    at that time, the world will then be left wondering who is telling the truth – except if the Russians taped the conversation.

      I hope Mueller and his team can piece enough of this together to stop Trump from funneling American voter data directly to his boss Vlad and his minions. So many scumbags, so little time, but I’d like to see them go down in this order:

      any of the Trump kids / Kushner

    I had been thinking shouldn’t Sally Yates be brought onto Mueller’s special counsel. Today it occurred to me (finally?) she may be more valueable as a witness… and certainly formidable! I may start eating popcorn (yuck), or cheesy puffs (on honour of ykw), but really feel so much better when I don’t be eat corn… so, first world dilemma. We may not have a ‘first world’ much longer at the rate ours is being trashed and plundered. And the natural disasters speeding up the 6th extinction.

      yes. I made this comment on a tweet that was suggesting this hire – she is a potential witness who can repeat on the stand that she warned homegrown demagogue and his team about Flynn. she probably has some other information that she has not publicly discussed.

      GE Sheila.

      It’s very true that the residents of this country would not handle prolonged electrical outage very well. Back in the 1970s (both in 1973 and at the end of that decade) during the gas shortage (odd-even license plate purchase of gasoline, over an hour wait to fill up, stations closed on Sundays, etc.) people were definitely not on their best behavior, lots of frayed nerves and fights. Absolutely horrifying to think of how armed crazies would react to no electricity for the foreseeable future. 😦

      Our government has made it easy for anyone with internet access to hone in on where our weak spots are:

      So sick of the media talking about the democratic party trying to “rebuild”. Only thing keeping the democrats out of power is voter suppression/gerrymandering by the GOP – and it is well past time the media spoke to the truth of this matter.

      I have serious doubts about how Trump won the election – my brain cannot comprehend that anyone other than the 27% of stupids could vote for this person.

    Haven’t read the NYTimes article yet about Don Jr., yet, but the responses to this tweet make it sound like a juicy story…

    Here’s my two cents:

  44. July 9, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    Hello Tod. Just got off a conference call with Cory Booker re Health Care. I was very impressed at how passionate he
    is about fighting for the survival of the ACA. He is asking us to be even more vigilant this week in whatever way we
    choose to fight, because McConnell is twisting arms as we speak trying to get the craven GOP bill thru the senate.
    I was also encouraged to find out that the Dems are working on ways to prevent Trump from suffocating the ACA in
    the event that the GOP bill fails. That Buffoon will be trying to do an EO among other things, to try to get rid of the ACA.

    We will not let this happen on our watch. We will continue to #persist and #resist this week and for however long it takes.
    So just wanted to pass on the word that the Dems are fighting in the senate and we have to keep on keeping on till
    that piece of garbage of a GOP bill is defeated.

    maybe I have read and watched too many spy material for my own good – so my thoughts may seem far-fetched.

    but apart from the more obvious and widely discussed story, why has no one taken a more curious examination of how else one member of the homegrown demagogue’s family could have come into his life…… ???

None of us are surprised, probably not even my husband though I haven’t said anything to him. Remember, he’s the one that called us kooks and crazies, among other things. Still refuses to meet with anyone. I send his office a ‘ton’ of RESISTBOTS (my senators and rep get all the ones I send.) Many people think he will not run again. Question is will they try to ‘install’ this son, Duncan III, or will it be his sister who is currently a state senator. All in the family……………..sigh! 😦 😦 😦 😦

    I wrote here early today that the drill is to wait a few hours or days before putin or homegrown demagogue denies what he and/or someone on his team treason just said;

    so he is now contradicting what he said just a few hours about the “Cyber Security Unit” …….. a few hours is all he needed;

    as a revenge or desire to shame or blackmail, we may soon get to hear a report from putin and his team contradict the contradiction ;

    Attack, Attack, Attack
    Why does Trump double-down every time it seems like he should retreat? Because Steve Bannon is back in his boss’s good graces.

    By Joshua Green


    By the time he left for Saudi Arabia on May 19, Trump had awakened to the danger the Russia investigation poses to his presidency. So he brought Bannon out of the doghouse and gave him a familiar mission: to organize a defense, go after his enemies, and head off the latest threat to Trump’s political career. Bannon’s first task was to create an outside war room to “put a prophylactic around the Oval Office,” as a White House official put it, one that would shield Trump from the encroaching crisis.

    That agenda took on even greater urgency when a Washington Post report on intelligence intercepts of Kislyak’s conversations revealed that Kushner had discussed setting up a secret communications channel with Moscow inside Russian diplomatic facilities. Soon after, the Post reported that Mueller was investigating Kushner’s financial dealings and scrutinizing the meetings he omitted from his security-clearance application.

    (Kushner hasn’t been charged with any wrongdoing and his lawyers say he is eager to cooperate with investigators.) According to advisers inside and outside the White House, Trump grew frustrated with his son-in-law, not just over the Russia stories but over reports that members of Kushner’s family, in an effort to entice Chinese investors seeking EB-5 visas to back a New Jersey real-estate project, hinted at their Trump connection. Both issues hastened Bannon’s resurrection.
