    I’m just hearing that the White House suspended the press pass of Jim Acosta of CNN – he had to turn over his credentials (which he’s had for five years) to the Secret Service at the gate.

    ALL CNN reporters – at the very least – should not go back until he’s allowed back.

      If only our press was strong enough to do something like that. They are cowards and this is why the White House feels that it can take these kind of fascist actions against members of the press.

      And those “journalists” were so thrilled to cover all negativity throughout that time. Now, I just wave anyone’s church fan at them & yell at my teevee, “Sit your damn ass down, & pray for some grey matter.” Oooh Lawd & hallelujah, no sympathy! 😂😎

      Guthrie has always been a full on bitch whenever she even mentions PBO’s name. She and others were nasty and dismissive to PBO, but he stood there, never made any of it personal, and made his points. I have no tears for the White House press corps who gave up their true responsibilities to the public long ago. Money and ego are the drivers of journalism because it is a business and should not be considered the 4th Estate. maybe they will do some soul-searching now that they are being treated like shit and will finally start doing their jobs. Peter Alexander is another joke: during the 2012 election he proudly stated that he felt like he was one of Romney’s sons. They are all bearing the brunt of what they helped to create.

    I could be totally wrong. But think firing Sessions is another one of iQ45’s Eff ups. Congress protects their own, despite sheer decency & real patriotism. Methinks, there’ll be a backlash which will inadvertently protect Team Mueller. Meanwhile, I totally believe Mueller has contingencies from A to Zed. 😎

      Yes, I’ve thought that all along, and at least a couple of them said that a while back.

      But I think Jeffie has already lost Lindsey. No surprise there.

      Wishful thinking. Those jackals ain’t loyal to anyone but themselves. Beauregard ain’t got no more power, so they won’t give two plug nickels about him getting tossed on his chewy chocalate-chip-makin ass.

        Yep. The vicious elf allowed himself to be humiliated for the chance to oppress Black and Brown people. Look how arrogant he was just a few days ago when the two Methodist ministers reminded him of his religious duties in dealing with those who are suffering, quoting scripture and calling on him to show mercy and kindness. A week later he is out, no position and no influence.

    Feeling so much calmer tonight than I was before last night’s results.

    I just responded similarly on two posts here, to wit: I love John Dingell. I love Pete Souza.

    Ha. Reminds me of one of my favorite lines from an old movie (anybody remember it?), which I also loved:

      PBO knew how to get ahead of the press’s fuckery. He took responsibility and even gave them the word to describe the midterm results. They were reduced to just repeating what he said and were foiled in any attempt to use the results as a whip to beat him.

      Woot! Woot! My folks live in this District and are doing the happiest of happy dances. They were 1 of the only 5 houses in their entire retirement community they live in that had Mike Levin’s sign on their front lawn. Thank god Issa’s reign is DONE.

    Hey y’all remember that hateful county clerk in KY who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses, Kim Davis? Well she lost her re-election to one of the guys she wouldn’t give a marriage license!!! Ha! Love it! 😆

    Seriously the man that grabs women by the p###y, has someone’s press credentials pulled because he touched an intern. Can we say irony? #lookattheshinyobject #dontforgetthechildren

  34. November 8, 2018 at 3:09 am

    All those just elected, make sure you get those children back with their parents and out of Texas or wherever they are. White folks have pulled this on Native Americans, African Americans, Japanese Americans, Cambodians, Laotians, and now Hispanics. How much longer until these children are adopted out and the new parents have to pay for their upkeep. (Sold)

    Another mass shooting in California! More innocent souls taken. More trauma for those who escaped and loved ones of those who didn’t. More NRA blood preventing anything from being done about it.
    More… Thoughts and prayers 😔

    All of the fuckery involving mail in ballots from Georgia to Arizona is exactly why POC stand in long lines to vote in person. This is why you see little women in their 90’s and 100’s standing/sitting in the heat and discomfort. We know out ballots would go “missing” the moment they could arrive if they even got there. One of my best friends recently moved to Atlanta and decided to mail-in her ballot (she had previously lived in CO). She took photos of her completed ballot and posted it on every social media platform that she could to try to protect her vote. POC know not to trust election officials.

  46. November 8, 2018 at 9:15 am

    Oh, Jesus, no. I hope she’s alright and is getting the best care.

    I hope and pray for the quick recovery of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    but I must admit that the collective impact of this news, coming just after the gop’s retention of the senate and the 2016 election results, is testing my faith …. i will leave it at that so that I may not cause others here to follow my example of weakness at this hour ……

    of course i do not set the legislative agenda. but i hope that the first policy Democrats in the house need to bring to the floor should be one that deals with the right to vote and protecting the voting infrastructure.

    democracy cannot progress well if the people are not reassured that they will be allowed to vote with minimum hassles, that their vote will be protected, and that there is transparency which is ensuring that their final vote totals are tallied properly

      Take care of yourself. We will all need you to help heal the nation and guide its steps into becoming a more perfect union. That day is coming sooner than many may believe because the current state of events are not sustainable. This fool and his enablers see enemies everywhere while actually making them each day each hour. Breathe deeply, meditate, and do those things that assure you that the world is not as dark as it appears. Sending hugs.
