    Were they marked confidential as a way to keep them hidden?


    • September 6, 2018 at 11:31 am

      -With hundreds of thousands of documents being kept secret by GOP via Kavanaugh associate Burck, does this mean we can potentially see all the documents marked ‘committee confidential? The 35 months redacted because Kavanaugh was working as Bush’s staff sec? Can we see ALL of them along with Kavanaugh’s racial profiling email.

    It is almost impossible to keep up with events, they are happening so fast. I believe Senators Harris and Booker are keeping ahead of events, however. Amazing people!
    Having taught English for over 40 years, I look at everything through the prism of literature. This morning during my shower…..my best alone time….I started thinking of literature that Ryan, McConnell, et al should read. I doubt they would take away the lessons they should, but I’m going to put my reading list out here for contemplation. Of course, Shakespeare. First, “King Lear.” The king puts his hope in the wrong daughters, and eventually goes mad. Second, “Macbeth” I think everybody has read this, but it is greatly applicable. Third “Titus Andronicus” what tyranny does and how it can happen. Fourth “Julius Caesar” another one everyone has read. I always think of Paul Ryan when I hear the line “Young Casca has a lean and hungry look.”
    Next, I would go to the Greeks….”Antigone”, and for a modern explication of the Romans, “I, Claudius” by Robert Graves. This is just a beginning list, but these hold up a mirror to what is happening now.
    Perhaps “The Madness of King George”, which I would now change to “The Madness of King Donald.” I truly believe he is descending into full fledged madness. Nero and Caligula have nothing on him.

      this is what i feel…and low and behold the liberal media…is promoting this coup…

      from the article:

      Nothing could have more perfectly anticipated the anonymously-penned op-ed, and its author’s mendacious and vainglorious attempt to frame their secret coup as an act of heroism.

      The senior official makes plain, just as I observed, that they do not seek to derail Trump’s vile agenda, but to protect it from him: “To be clear, ours is not the popular ‘resistance’ of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.”

    I was listening to Thom Hartmann this morning and he was taking callers about yesterday’s Op-Ed. There were many people who came up with names but most importantly most including Thom said it’s not about “Who” wrote it but that it was written by someone who has essentially staged a coup. An ex-congressman Nye called to say that he thinks Trump had someone in his administration approach the NYT, identify themselves to post it because he knows the NYT either would never give up it’s source or are in on it. With all the people who were guessed it could be all denied it, one by one. ex-congressman Nye made a good point: 1) If they person or people are doing this to save the President from himself, WHY write this Op-Ed in the first place. 2) Is this to give cover for the Kavanaugh hearings 3) It’s to give cover for the book, Fear, by Woodward and the excerpts that state this is going on. Ex-congressman Nye thinks this was maybe written by Stephan Miller with Trump’s knowledge. Notice NO ONE said it could be Stephan Miller.

    • September 6, 2018 at 2:35 pm

      I listened to Thom also (while in the car) early part of his show. So I didn’t hear what you have here. Thom’s musings were that IF these people are trying to cover for 45 and say they are saving the US, that’s in effect, a coup d’etat since a group (if letter is true) have essentially taken over much of the governing/administering that a president would normally do. He pointed out the reason he says it’s more like a coup d’etat is that that is illegal. The country didn’t elect them. It elected DT. (Well, with the help of voter suppression and Russia!) If letter is true, then the person needs to come forward. Go to the leaders in Congress and go before the American people and “spill it.”

      Interesting points by Bob Ney, especially about Stephen Miller. Another possibility I heard: Pence’s COS or his speech writer. Who has the MOST to gain from the 25th being used?! And, he’s always said he was appointed by God to be president. UGH! Lord help us!!!!

        Thank you Tnmtgirl, yes it was Bob Ney not Nye.

        I agree that the anonymous op-ed is a “fake”. This is a national security crisis and if they are preventing iQ45 from harming our country who are they to do this? They need to then come forward that they went to Congress and Congress won’t act.

        Just saw that Bob Woodward released a copy of the letter that Gary Cohen swiped off Dotards desk. I find it odd that the Op-ed came out after the excerpts of Bob’s book that people in the administration is doing what the Op-ed states so that it’s no big deal.

      Birth control pills/contraception drugs do not “induce” pre-mature birth nor causes abortions. Men need to STFU about a woman body unless they are a physician. Plan B pills can’t be considered “abortion inducing” all it does is cause your period to start on time, prevents the release of the egg, prevents fertilization of the egg. You can take Plan B pills still become pregnant if the pill does not work.

    Someone should inform the court that the U.S. has the highest maternal death in the developed world.
    Nearly 60% of those deaths are preventable (CDC). And btw pregnancy is preventable.

    Thank you for your courage Senators Booker and Harris. Now that those documents have become public, let’s not lose sight of the fact that those documents, as the Senators told us, had absolutely no national security reason to be “confidential”. They were labeled as “Committee Confidential” for political purposes only. All of the objections by the Republicans need to be CALLED OUT! This was purely political. Shame on them. With all of the chaos swirling around, I don’t expect to hear a single pundit discuss this simple truth. Had the Senators not had to courage to release the documents, the Republicans would have gotten away with hiding these facts from Americans. Fight Back!!

      I’ve already “warned” Avenatti via tweet (Ha!!!!!!) several times NOT to put down any Democrats if he’s running and he wants votes.

      Plus, he needs to call them “Senator” – not Mr. or Ms., in his tweet, although I get he felt that was being respectful.

    I’m forcing myself to watch a little of trump’s rally in Montana … just to see if he goes off the rails. Not sure how much I can stand.

    Right before he came out, they played the usual God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood … and before that We Are the Champions by Queen (Freddie Mercury, a gay man, whom I don’t think would like trump’s wicked ways) and Revolution by the Beatles, who were FAR from what today we’d call trump people.

    Now the Montana RWNJ suck-up is speaking after being intro’d by the orange turd. Turd is trying to look interested.

    Okay, I can’t do this … eek.

    Been thinking Putin/KOCH loyalty probably trumps Trump loyalty. Total Trump loyalty may be required for receiving Russian cash (e.g. McConnell, Graham and Rubio. Nunes?) Those who have so desperately sought to give a Kavanaugh supreme power have had to weather the monster Trump. And given all McConnell’s strategizing it’s possible that Kavanaugh himself has been The longtime goal. So now having thunked about this…Pierce’s article says it a trill times better: See: “If I didn’t know this was all rigged, I”d think Brett Kavanaugh is in serious trouble”.

    Believe me, I’m gonna vote for whichever Democrats run in 2020 for President and Vice President, but every time I think about the glorious smiles of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris (and all of their other charms that would qualify ’em, don’t get me wrong) and think about them on the same ticket, I can’t stop smiling. Nice, normal people, who aren’t fake and who only wish to help their fellow Americans. Wouldn’t that be something, after what we’ve endured.

    • September 6, 2018 at 11:05 pm

      Same with me. That is my first ticket choice. I battle with myself about being concerned about Joe’s age…..”old white man.” However, with the mess the team will be stepping into, we must have broad experience in both foreign and domestic policy. There’s no one who has a good chance of winning that fits that except Joe Biden. Putting her with him gives us (Dems) and the country a WOC and a “sharp as a tack” on at that. Truly cares and not in it for herself. After first term, she could run at top of ticket and the USA might just finally get our first woman president. 🙂

        Had some of those same thoughts! When that guy Barack Obama was running for President in 2008, I remember telling my son, “It’s your generation’s turn. Mine tried, but we’re practically right back where we started now! We need somebody younger, with new ideas.” (PBO was a bit older than my son’s generation – I’m not that ancient!!!)

        But now? Give Joe a chance, because he knows the ropes, knows how to get along, cares about us, is sincere and honest, etc., etc. Plus, he can go right back into the White House and doesn’t need training. Doesn’t need to be “briefed” on how to get along with Congress. Doesn’t need to learn protocol for visiting with other world leaders. Won’t send somebody to war just to make himself look tough.
        Wants us to have healthcare and all the other stuff that’s been held up. You know the rest. ❤

        I’ve always been of the mindset that Trump’s only problem as far as the GOP is concerned is that unlike Mitt Romeny, Trump doesn’t discuss business in quiet rooms like Mitt suggested. Trump’s only problem is that he’s uncouth, and loud, and boorish. Trump’s hellacious policies are of no concern to the GOP.

      Last night my son had Spanish homework to do, now mind you on a good day I can maybe count to ten in Spanish. Anyway he had to answer twenty questions in Spanish, so we jumped on Google and about twenty minutes later we were finished. The point is, with a computer we breezed through it. But the sad part is that there are millions of families out there that don’t have computers in their homes for economic reasons. So how are those kids able to complete their homework?
