      Lovely video of a dignified gentleman who happened to be our President for 8 years and who made us proud when he and his family traveled overseas. And Bercow is correct that Trump should have never been invited to speak in such an austere hall.

      This makes me so proud and so sad at the same time. We had a President that was admired and respected around the world. He is so intelligent and the world forgave us for “Bush”. I don’t think the world will forgive us or think that America has any common sense from here on. The media and so many Americans really appreciated what we had in this President. He was like JFK and RFK rolled up in one.

    meta, thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this! I remember this so vividly, and it is so good to remember what we had. Listening to Bercow and watching President Obama made me cry…..tears of thankfulness for that wonderful man, and sadness for what we have today, but the thankfulness tears are stronger. Yes, we did have eight years of dignity, class, intelligence, compassion, humility…..I trust we will again.

      Isn’t he magnificent? I’m so grateful we had those years to feel proud and lifted and educated and appreciated.

    Hello TOD Family. I listen to Randi Rhodes live everyday 1 – 3PM Mon – Friday plus I bought the POD Cast since it’s inception. Her full Friday shows are posted on her Facebook and YouTube, just google Randi Rhodes Live and it will show the dates of her show. We need her voice out there folks so she has tasked all her listeners to have people listen to today’s show. She went over the indictments that are coming closer and closer to Orange Satan and the now the GOP. This show is simply mind blowing! Please listen.

    • July 13, 2018 at 6:52 pm

      Evening TOD, jojo. I listen to her everyday as well. She always does deep research, just don’t understand how she can’t see Bernie Sanders for what he is. Well, everybody gets something wrong !!

        She ‘was’ a Bernie girl in the primaries. Whether she’ll be a Bernie girl again I don’t know. She did tell people to fall in love for the primary but fall in line for the general election and vote for Clinton. She knew what was at stake.

    Bottom line …. as ‘bottom line’ as it can ever get ….

    Because to do anything else is insanity on a scale never seen before ….

    • July 13, 2018 at 6:20 pm

      And, by ‘cornered’ I also mean that the displays of HATRED toward him plus the inexorable convergence of all dimensions of his criminality are going to ignite his core evilness.

      Never before, at least on this planet, has any single creature had the capacity to obliterate everyone. Trump does.

      And, like so many mass murderers he knows he will never feel pain of punishment or retribution because he’ll vaporize in way less than a heart beat.

      For crying out loud! He’s on VIDEO saying, “RUSSIA IF YOURE LISTENING, PLEASE FIND THE 30,000 EMAILS. YOU WILL BE REWARDED MIGHTILY BY OUR…PRESS”. When he hesitated I thought he wanted to say, our PARTY.

    (expletive deleted, on my part) But here’s another good-news story today:

    • July 13, 2018 at 7:37 pm

      What happened re: the offer from the Muslim community in Tampa? Was it reported by Rachel? Do you think it will be ignored by the racist Trump – so that children will suffer, die and DISAPPEAR rather than be allowed to go to Muslim families? Better for the children to be released from jail asap – who knows how long it will take to reunite families. One 3 year old was jailed for a whole year before seeing his Mom again. (Yesterday I hung around w/some gorgeous American children from a group home – a few going home soon and so happy about it. My golden retriever was a Big hit. If only the children jailed in such Dickensian conditions could enjoy the sweet company of dogs.)

        Only saw one reference to the offer from the Tampa Muslim community, but that offer should have been taken up immediately, I agree! And your sweet visit (along with your dog) to the children is heartwarming to hear!

      Democrats need to point out that although this is not about parties, there was a Republican candidate and DJT campaign was seeking HRC emails. This should be repeated over and over and over until it takes hold.

  17. July 13, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    • July 13, 2018 at 7:47 pm

      Trump/Putin co-conspirators moving things to the next level in person. Plans to do something you cain’t do on the phone, I guess.
      As well as poke U.S. Democrats and EU liberals in the eyeballs. Showtime carnival barking.

    • July 13, 2018 at 8:01 pm

      Plus aiding and abetting on the coat tails of Putin’s global schemes: Daines, Barasso and others who went to Russia for July 4th.

      Plus he DID say that a GOP Candidate reached out to Russians asking for dirt on HRC as well as someone in the DJT campaign….MENTION THAT!

    Given current events, it reminds of when we had a real, intelligent, knowledgeable, strategic and prepared president to deal with the evil, conniving little Russian thug.

      Thank you so much, Tally, for sharing this. Rhandhi was absolutely awesome. There is absolutely no doubt that Donald Trump is an illegitimate president. No wonder he was going around, before the election, shouting about the election being rigged. Like any skilled propagandist, Trump was PROJECTING to distract the American people, and the media, from what he and Vladimir Putin were doing to rig the election in his favor. I also started reading Malcolm Nance’s book: “The Plot To Destroy Democracy: How Putin And His Spies Are Undermining America and Dismantling The West.” So far, it’s absolutely an eye opener.

    Good Morning TOD…. Things got real yesterday…

    a few things that were not mentioned much yesterday…was the role of the MSM & Sanders campaign in helping to spread the weaponized propaganda….and the role of Facebook and Twitter and other social media

    the press knew that that documents were stolen …yet they disseminated them any way…

    and Sanders used the info to destroy her character..and by refusing to end his campaign early he helped to crystalized his supporters’ opposition against Hillary

    Russia stole the info of nearly 500,000 Americans

    I believe that FB knew what was going on…but the bottom line was money…

    In the meantime…Congress has not has done nothing to shore up our elections….

    and what are the states doing to protect our elections…

    Twenty-four hours ago it was the calm before the storm, we all woke up Friday morning with Friday things on our mind. Then news broke that Rosenstein over at DOJ and scheduled a press conference, and what a press conference it was. The conspirators were all but named, at least the Russian part of the equation was named. But the American part of the equation, not so much. The American conspirators know who they are. And let me tell you at this exact moment as you’re reading this, they are somewhere experiencing all the five stages of grief. These people made a pact with the devil to screw over this country, and that should anger you, because it angers me. They should not be offered neither refuge nor respite, they should be marched to the town square and made to confess their wrong-doing. I’ve been waiting for weeks for Mueller to say something, say anything. And Friday afternoon he spoke, and spoke he did.
