    Morning everyone. I agree with the woman that said 2018 can’t come soon enough. I hope that the traitors and liars get thrown in prison BEFORE that!

    I read this morning that McConnell is going to try again using Senator Graham’s more moderate bill giving states grant money. If so we cannot celebrate too soon. It is like cutting off the head of the alien creature that then becomes two and so on so you can never get rid of it.
    Please inform me how 51 votes that Trump wants on everything can be achieved?

    Re-posting from last thread because I think we may have been a bit adrift with these great leaders:

    “But the history and language of the Constitution and Supreme Court precedents suggest that the president does not enjoy general immunity from prosecution.

    First, the framers knew how to write a clause granting such immunity when they wanted to. Members of Congress enjoy “privilege from arrest” in civil cases when going to and from Congress (now irrelevant because we no longer use that procedure) and may not be criminally prosecuted for “any speech or debate” in Congress. If the framers wanted to protect the president from prosecution while in office and to make impeachment the sole mechanism for proceeding against a president, they could and would have said so.

    Second, some argue that criminal prosecution would distract the president and make him unable to perform his duties. During Watergate, Richard Nixon’s lawyers argued that “if the president were indictable while in office, any prosecutor and grand jury would have within their power the ability to cripple an entire branch of the national government and hence the whole system.” The Supreme Court never reached that question, and Nixon left office without being indicted.

    In my view, questions about “crippling” the government are not compelling, and the precedents in favor of the power to indict a sitting president were strengthened with the Supreme Court’s ruling that a private sexual harassment lawsuit against Clinton involving alleged conduct before he took office could go forward even during his presidency. As I wrote in the memo to Starr, “If the president is indicted, the government will not shut down, any more than it shut down when the Court ruled that the president must answer a civil suit brought by Paula Jones.” “

    Russia is ready to strike back at the U.S. government for a bill imposing sanctions over the 2016 election interference, a Kremlin official warned Sunday. … “We will respond in kind. We will mirror this. We will retaliate.” …

      This why Drillerson is “on vacation”. You can bet the salient deeds and agreements between Trump and Russia are done for now.
      Now they can play at being mad with each other for the press.

        GA/GE BRP.

        When Kobach sent that letter to the states asking for voter information, I took some time to research this question.

        Kobach cited a statute (that I can’t recall now, and don’t have time to look up now) that was signed into law by GWB after the 2000 debacle/stolen election.

        Paper ballots were outlawed by the federal government in the early aughts, all because of the 2000 election and frigging Florida’s insane “butterfly” ballot design (don’t know if it’s true, but they were probably the only state to use that ridiculous design, and as a result, the other 49 states are now suffering from their incompetence). 😦

        Sorry for the negativity. I’m over the ignorant, hateful antics. They treat the WH like its a fucking frat house….and the world is an unpredictable and dangerous place. Made more so by the morons that traipse through there on a regular basis.

      One of my team members insisted on coming in to work the day he was sworn in as a citizen. I couldn’t convince him to take the whole day off, so I got his wife to bring in the kids and we all surprised him with a fully decorated cubicle and an office party to celebrate him that afternoon. For time-reporting, it was a “team building” event. That was one of our best days, before the evil empire bought out our company and ruined everything.

    An Ad coming on? Charm–Bully–Abandon–Sue.
    Trump approach: “First he tries to charm you.. if that doesn’t work he tries to bully you. And if that doesn’t work he walks away from the deal.
    And if that doesn’t work – he sues you…That’s not how democracy works – it’s how a bully works”. Well said dear Nancy, thank you.

    … But even with his anticipated signing of the bill, Trump has refused to publicly condemn Russia for the election hacks, and he has publicly doubted the consensus from the U.S. intelligence community that the Kremlin attacked the campaign to help him win.

    Trump claimed he pressed Putin about the hacks when they met at the G20 Summit in Germany July 7. He said Putin denied any wrongdoing, and Trump took him at his word. …
