    Did anyone see AM Joy this morning? Specifically the segment where Jason Johnson said President Obama was coward because he didn’t get Merrick Garland confirmed. Joy did not push back. This is happening at a time when President Obama is starting to get back in the fray to get Democrats elected. I deleted and cancelled all future recordings of AM Joy.

        I quit all news shows in 2009 after President Obama’s Inauguration – I couldn’t take the deceit any longer. Cannot do pundits at all.

    • July 1, 2018 at 5:54 pm

      Wow..i muted the segment prior to his saying that…because he was on a mission to bash Democrats…

    • July 2, 2018 at 8:59 pm

      I want Jason Johnson to explain how President Obama was a coward. How was Obama going to make McConnell do what was right. The sick ass cowards was the progressives who didn’t vote in 2010 and 2014 who allow the Republicans to take control of the House and Senate.

        Clearly, Jason Johnson, whoever he is, doesn’t understand how Congress – under a Republican majority – works. When the Democrats are in charge, it doesn’t work the same way. Democrats follow the Constitution and the rules. Republicans do what’s most expedient for their party or, in this case, for Trump.

    Good. Morning dear TOD family. I have a very personal rant this morning. This family separation is. Just so personally breaking my heart. Hen my oldest son was just 1 year old my folks took my siblings and spouses to Hawaii for. 10 days. We left Taz wth “Grandma Jones” who was our neighbor and took care of him when I worked. He was with a family he new and loved him. While we were go called and talked to him on the phone. But when we got home he wouldn’t let me out of his sight without screaming, he slept with us for along time. When he was here yesterday I asked him if he remembered any f that. He said no bushes wondered if that’s where his abandonment issues came from. He’s 44 years old and I didn’t know he felt this way. He said he knew we loved him but always worried we were leaving. This is a situation where love was always there and we were together quickly. All these children who are going through this now their future isssues are great. My heart is to heavy I have almost been powerless.

    That is changing now. I am going on a calling and letter writing campaign. Until every family is reunited I won’t rest.

    Thanks for reading my rant.

  8. July 1, 2018 at 4:03 pm

    thanks for listening. Collins said she wouldn’t support a nominee who “demonstrated hostility to Roe v Wade”.
    imo that’s OK as a back up, back up, to the possible back up plan (maybe). But meanwhile Collins is OK with the Baby Jailer and Torturer, dismantler of human rights and the Constitution? Under serious investigation while hanging out with Dictators?
    How’s about NO HEARINGS. Just like McConnell.
    It creases me to hear Rachel, Booker or whoever talking about this or that question of a nominee. Just Say No.
    Both sides get the same treatment = NO HEARINGS, NO DEBATE, NOTHING, NO CONCESSIONS.

      Collins is as useless as Jeff Flake. Apparently she thinks it’s good PR to say what she’s out there saying, but at the end of the day, both of them toe the line for Trump.

      Her seat needs to be flipped Blue, period. Having to rely on the whims of a weak, posturing Republican whose record gives NO indication of pushing back on Trump’s agenda is NOT a strategy.

      This is where I’m at. Any Democrat still peddling the “civility” nonsense is showing that they have no idea how to deal with straight-up fascists.

      I’m not giving these milquetoast Dems credit for playing 10-dimensional chess. They just don’t know how to deal with these cretins who want those who are different from them to STOP EXISTING.

      Trump and his minions will push the limits until they’re pushed back upon. Anyone who assumes that they will respond to civility in kind is hopelessly naive.

    Lots of stupid people have caused catastrophic damage … (and @FoxNews, Putin et al., are currently exploiting millions of them in a modern day version of what Stalin + Hitler + Mussolini accomplished).

    But, this time around the White House and Congress are controlled by precisely the folk Hitler + Stalin + Mussolini could only have wished had been on their side.

    Exclusive: A leaked Trump bill to blow up the World Trade Organization
    July 1, 2018 at 9:11 pm EDT

    Axios has obtained a leaked draft of a Trump administration bill — ordered by the president himself — that would declare America’s abandonment of fundamental World Trade Organization rules.

    The draft legislation is stunning. The bill essentially provides Trump a license to raise U.S. tariffs at will, without congressional consent and international rules be damned.

    The details: The bill, titled the “United States Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act,” would give Trump unilateral power to ignore the two most basic principles of the WTO and negotiate one-on-one with any country:

    I don’t know enough to know if this tweeter is a ‘good guy’ or not, but the points he makes in this thread seem reasonable so I’m sharing this part for what it seems to be saying. Part of the message I got was don’t despair, don’t be hysterical, and inform yourself.

        There’s a theory that some members of the media are being pressured or coerced by Russian kompromat as well as Trump and some members of Congress. That would explain the ridiculous amount of spin that’s being expended to normalize Trump “policies”.

    Do they know that under Trump the U.S.A. will be subordinate to Russia and Europe?

      • July 2, 2018 at 3:06 pm

        This one posted mega times about what happened in 2016, the McConnell Rule, and an entire year of unprecedented unconstitutional McConnell obstruction of a sitting President’s right to have his nominee heard. Justice Garland was chosen by Hatch: A Republican, chief on the Oklahoma bombing, head and 19 years on the DCC. Flawless. Democrats must demand equal treatment: NO Hearings. Nothing until January 2019.

        Definitely, Sheila – the GOP is the problem. But they also have the media in their corner to amplify whatever they want to say.

        This “civility” crap is the GOP telling Dems to shut up and be nice while the GOP does all kinds of dirty work. And what does the media do? They sit around and debate “civility” rather than focusing on how heinous Trump’s policies are.

        We know they’ll spin any Dem pushback negatively, but Dems just need to put their heads down and remind people that it’s the GOP committing the ugly acts. We need more Ted Lieus and Maxine Waterses out there.
