    Sweet, Nerdy! Noticed tonight on the Dave Letterman 2017 Mark Twain Prize show (from the Kennedy Center) that Mrs. Obama had on the same clothes and was before the same backdrop to tape her/their tribute to Dave for his award! No doubt the Obamas get a gazillion requests to congratulate people, and may just sit down together and do the assorted tapes in one long afternoon.

    What I meant by all this was: Oh how I miss them.

      It’s times like these I feel some Americans deserve all that they are getting from the Republicans.
      Warren is on Colbert saying she agrees with Donna Brazile…???
      I can’t understand all these ppl who now are lining up so fast so that they dont miss their turn at badmouthing PBO and HRC.

      Matthews is annoying to me. He is not living in the 21st century. He and Ed Rendell are from the same school of thought. I love the Kennedys, but he is obsessed with them.

    Leading Trump Census pick causes alarm
    The 2020 count might be put in the hands of an inexperienced professor who wrote that ‘Competitive Elections are Bad for America.’
    11/21/2017 05:06 AM EST

    The Trump administration is leaning toward naming Thomas Brunell, a Texas professor with no government experience, to the top operational job at the U.S. Census Bureau, according to two people who have been briefed on the Bureau’s plans.

    Brunell, a political science professor, has testified more than half a dozen times on behalf of Republican efforts to redraw congressional districts, and is the author of a 2008 book titled “Redistricting and Representation: Why Competitive Elections Are Bad for America.”

      Thank you rikyrah.

      This is the most horrible thing I’ve read about this unholy grotesque evil and his GOP enablers and the people who supposedly voted for him (I do not believe the GEOTWH won the electoral college) — and the list of horrible things is a mile long now.

      From the article:
      “It does not require Senate confirmation, so Congress would have no power to block the hire.”

    Donald Trump’s Response to Disaster Aid for California: Nothing
    NOV. 20, 2017 10:17 PM

    A few weeks ago, California requested $7.4 billion in disaster aid following the massive series of wildfires in the northern part of the state that killed 43 people and destroyed nearly 9,000 structures. Actually, let’s back up. That’s not quite accurate. California’s Democratic governor, its two Democratic senators, and its 39 Democratic members of Congress asked for $7.4 billion. With only one exception, California’s Republican delegation boycotted a request for disaster funding for their own state.

    Yesterday the Trump administration responded to California’s request:

    While the request includes anemic supplemental funding for states ravaged by hurricanes, it contains no funding whatsoever for rebuilding the communities in California devastated by the recent wildfires…. “For the Administration to not request even a single additional penny to help rebuild the communities devastated by the worst fires in California’s history is mind-boggling,” [said the two congressmen who led the disaster relief effort].

    CBS News confirms that Don Jr. met with Kremlin ally Alexander Torshin at an NRA event in May 2016.

    Kyle Griffin
    Forgot about this. Shortly before the election, Don Jr. flew to Paris for lunch at the Hotel Ritz Paris with a Syrian activist (who says she meets regularly with Russian officials) and her husband (who once nominated Putin for a Nobel Peace Prize).

    Donald Trump Jr.’s 2016 trip to Paris for lunch with Moscow-linked couple remains a puzzle

    who are the BASE of the Democratic Party…


    By every measurement…





    Why Democrats Must Regain the Trust of Religious Voters

    If the party wants to win back votes in the Trump era, it will need to stop ignoring people of faith.

    Democrats ignored broad swaths of religious America in the 2016 election campaign and the nation has suffered because of it. Yet calls for a recommitment to faith outreach—particularly to white and other conservative or moderate religious voters—have been met in some corners of liberal punditry with a response as common as it is unwarranted. Some quarters of the Democratic party would rather maintain rhetorical and ideological purity than win with a more inclusive coalition. For the sake of the country, the party must turn back to people of faith

    • November 21, 2017 at 11:46 am

      I am so tired of people talking about Democrats ignoring the christians, Democrats ignoring white working class. Don’t christians care about healthcare, education, jobs, increase in wages, helping the needy, the poor. Just fed up with it all. FED UP,

    From the article:
    “Through DACA, Montoya earned a political science degree from Arizona State University and a master’s in education from Grand Canyon University. She is a 2016 Soros Justice Fellow and 2017 Echoing Green Fellow. ”

    This is what our country has become — we’re now in the same category as Pakistan:
    “Montoya was honored in the ‘social entrepreneurs’ category of people who are ‘leveraging business smarts to save the world.’

    She’s in good company: Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai won in that category in 2016.”
