    A federal judge yesterday barred Michigan from enforcing a ban on straight-ticket voting. The Republican-imposed policy, U.S. District Judge Gershwin Drain concluded, was designed to “intentionally discriminate” against African Americans.

    A criminal mind: Creates an arsenal of crises (NK, Helsinki) so he can be the ‘only one’ to save the situation. Dicktraitor misspells “shocking gun” so he seems to be sole author, while tweeting jury and witness TAMPERING messages under advisement from his lawyers. He writes facetiously about mobster Capone because he’s a longtime member of the Russian/US mob. Pretends Manafort is just a “darling” boy who once worked for Reagan etc. (Even if so look at Manafort now.) Trump is a psychopath who cares nothing for who gets hurt or who dies as long as he ‘wins’.
    A separated toddler just released from ICE has died. How many more will die? How many will be on the record for us to know about?

      I hope someone will follow-up checking out the paid actor claim. I would not be surprised if it were true as that is exactly what he did when he rolled out his campaign. Another idea for facial recognition would be to check on his cult followers to see if they attend more than one rally. Although I am beginning to think there are more dumb people in the US than I thought.

Eff these grifters, immoral to the core arses. OK, just had to vent. Back to rest of Lawrence …

    And, National Archives said they can’t get all the paperwork on Kavanaugh to Grassley lickty-spit cos he has a long paper trail. Grassley’s response for an important nomination (supreme court) is: ok, we’ll go ahead anyway? Are you freaking kidding me? Let’s all call Grassley & everyone pronto & give them a serious piece of our minds. Grassley’s number: 202-224-3744. Here’s a link to all in his office: https://www.grassley.senate.gov/news/communications-staff

How dare they think that they can slide through vetting process & continuously abdicate their jobs? Uggh!

      I can’t even with this bullshit anymore.WTF! You know what I would LIKE to see? I would like to see Smith College find out who reported this woman for eating her lunch and EXPEL her from school on the grounds that she doesn’t reflect the values of the college and is a bad fit. Maybe this shit would stop if there we some consequences.

      I agree, the person should be fired or expelled for racial discrimination and hatred. The reason the person could not walk up and talk to this young lady is that the person only spoke and understood hatred.

    The US doesn’t NEED any protections for “religious liberty” unless you have nefarious ideas. Our liberties, all of them, are enshrined in the Constitution. I’m pretty sure Sessions knows this. This is nefarious.

      State Sponsored Child Trafficking we need to use the correct words. These children are been sold into slavery for work, sex, and adopted to the highest bidder. Who is getting these young babies? Rich people who can’t have children of their own.

      Yes, I hope we have a Thread devoted entirely for President Barack Obama tomorrow (please Nerdy 🙂 No politics, it can wait until Sunday, just celebration of a wonderful man, husband, father, teacher, and president.

      I was thinking of some of the random stories when he was first running for president. I will never forget the woman who was leaving the united states to live in another country with her husband. She had all her possessions in suit cases and the airlines told her she need more money to take everything or to get rid of the items she could part with. The woman broke down in tears and begged them that she would send the money once she arrived to her destination. She recalled the kind gentleman who asked how much did they need to take all her suit cases. He handed the ticket agent his credit card. The woman thanked him profusely and took his name and address, promising to pay him back. As promised the woman arrived at her new destination, settled in, and sent the kind stranger a check for the amount he charged. When she saw the name Barack Obama running for US President in 2008 she thought it sounded familiar. She went to her old records and found the note and address of the kind stranger was the same Barack Obama. She summized it was a time he was not making a lot of money but stepped up to help a stranger. I can’t imagine too many people who would do that for a complete stranger. Must have been something about that poor woman who was so distraught and sincere that he took a chance to help her or as we all know, it’s just something about Barack Obama, how he was raised, to always help someone who is in need when he could. May God always Bless Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and the entire Obama family.

      Trump kept the Queen waiting and half the globe saw it. So at his latest Incitement To Violence event he says She kept him waiting:
      “I landed and I’m on the ground and I’m waiting with the king’s and the queen’s guards.” There is no “king’s guard.” There’s only the queen and her husband, who is Prince Phillip. Not king. Anyway, I digress. “I’m waiting,” he says. “I was about 15 minutes early and I’m waiting with my wife and that’s fine. Hey, it’s the queen, right? We can wait. But I’m a little early.”

    Some real wisdom for the day:

  50. August 3, 2018 at 1:27 pm

    HATCH is extreme lying and going against decades of Supreme Court nominee protocol:
    -GOP has blocked the paperwork showing that Kavanaugh is pro-torture.
    -National Archives says full set of Kavanaugh 1,000,000 documents for review not available until October.
    -We know the impact of Kavanaugh if he gets on SCOTUS. His views on executive power and indictment and impeachment matter.
    -GOP know fine well that No Supreme position is feasible until after the investigation into Trump-Russia and other possible crimes.
    Kavanaugh could even give Trump his wish — a lifetime presidency.

      They miss PBO too, they raised a lot of money telling people PBO was coming for their guns when it never happened people stopped buying guns after he left office. The gun manufacturers and the NRA worked themselves out of existence. Buh bye!

    • August 3, 2018 at 3:14 pm

      Gun Manufacturing Industry has made bills/trills domestically and internationally: While we footed the bill with hundreds of thousands dead and wounded without any industry liability. We ran up untold debts in health care for victims.
