    Greetings, TOD!
    Thank you, Nerdy, for posting the above article of First Lady Michelle Obama’s remarks to Stephen Colbert.

    “A U.S. judge said on Thursday he would order the Trump administration to comb through the records of 47,000 immigrant children
    and within six months identify those separated from their parents after crossing the Mexican border.”(Reuters) – A U.S. judge said on Thursday he would order the Trump administration to comb through the records of 47,000 immigrant children and within six months identify those separated from their parents after crossing the Mexican border.”
    = 47,000 children.
    = 47,000 children.
    Trump’s cruelty has no bounds. His despotic régime must be exposed and fired.

    Cannot, Can’t:
    “McConnell can’t pre-emptively be given veto power over impeachment proceedings.”
    “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is constitutionally bound to proceed with an impeachment trial should the House impeach—formally charge—Donald Trump. That’s the conclusion his staff has come to after undertaking a legal assessment, according to Glenn Thrush (NYT).”
    –McConnell actively protected Russian interference, blocked the Senate and changed the rules for 10 years, now supports Graham and
    Barr in concealing evidence in the Mueller report. That all?

      Saw a MAGA hat on a fellow volunteer for a project I was helping with. Sat as far away from this person as possible at the meeting. Decided to look for another project to help with after that.

  21. April 26, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    Was Russian Money laundered thru the NRA…and then that same money donated to GOP members of Congress and state legislatures…would explain so much of where the The Republican Party is..& .why they are so gung ho with Russia

    Actually, I feel like the last one at the bar – Ha! – but guess I shouldn’t admit that I know how that feels, eh? 🙂

  29. April 27, 2019 at 2:14 am

    We knew, a long time ago, that this day was coming.

    We knew that Trump would comprehensively degrade the Rule of Law.

    We knew that when this day arrived it would be defining.

    We have arrived.

    What happens now determines – long before Nov 2020 – whether we will even have an opportunity to vote in a legitimate election.

    We can’t merely demand that those we elected in Nov 2018 do their job; we have to steel them with our overwhelming acts of support so they not only know what is expected of them, but also know we stand with them.

    Goodnight TOD ….

    The testimonies of important players needs to be on tv for America to see and hear for themselves. Once they do, much more than 37% of the country will want impeachment process to play out.

    • 56 pkayden
      April 28, 2019 at 7:31 am

      Great point. Start the impeachment proceedings and the percentage will skyrocket. Only the hardcore Deplorables will refuse to acknowledge that Trump is unfit for the White House.

    • April 28, 2019 at 8:30 am

      If the house starts Impeachment hearings…they know that the Republicans in the Senate will not convict and remove Trump from office …so where do we go from there…even now the WH is refusing to cooperate…

      is there a danger of throwing care to wind and starting Impeachment hearings regardless of the outcome….will the courts be less partisan…and side with Congress…will Trump and the DOJ defy the courts..and what happens with the upcoming Presidential election…

      Yeah – just heard Ollie North wasn’t even good enough for the NRA (a very low bar) and they ousted the rat.

  35. April 27, 2019 at 12:29 pm

    NRA executive Chris Cox in lead up to Trump speech to nra:
    “They hate us. They hate our trucks, they hate our plastic straws, and yes, they hate our guns. But what they fail to understand is we don’t give a damn what they think.”
    -Yes they don’t give a damn about anyone who disagrees with them.
    -The Trump party is building a case to de-humanize non-whites as sub-human, babies, LGBT, or anyone who doesn’t vote for them.
    -So that for example who will be surprised at anything by the time gop is locking up Jews.

  36. April 27, 2019 at 12:44 pm

    New meme needed to permeate that says “Trump conspired and Trump obstructed.”
    Barr/GOP successfully spun the “no collusion” meme after the media ran with his faux version of the Mueller report.
    The more gop slows this all down and gums up the works, the more the Barr playbook and Barr memes permeate the blogosphere/talking heads.
    -These memes are aimed at the 15% bloc of voters in the middle.
    Imo we desperately need congressional Hearings: We must expose Mueller’s facts and findings direct to all Americans via television.

  37. April 27, 2019 at 12:51 pm

    Also imo notable: The media not talking about Manafort and have stonewalled about his key links to Kremlin and Ukraine…we know evidence for conspiracy is there. (He probably still holds hope out for a pardon down the road.) There’s a reason why Trump brought Manafort on board his campaign and why he changed the plank on Ukraine policy = Out of the gate the Trump campaign showed their allegiance to Putin.

        I am seeing the same thing tnmtngirl1. Apparently all of the hosts, including Joy have been told to discuss this Anita Hill issue on every show. Bernie sanders is one of the front runners, and not once have I seen the pundits dedicate a lengthy portion of their shows about Sanders’ voting record or any negative opposition research.

      Those who don’t support Biden want to try to make it a issue.It will not be a issue with me. Biden apologize to her, if Hill does not accept it then Biden has done his job. Move on.

      FTR Bob…

      Al·la·hu Ak·bar
      a phrase meaning ‘God is most great’, used by Muslims in prayers and as a general declaration of faith or thanksgiving.
      “crowds of people gathered, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar!’”

      be careful..there is a difference between this phrase and what Trump and nazis say…

      • April 28, 2019 at 2:17 pm

        Sheila, I know precisely what it means. It’s in quotes to indicate the fact that it has been usurped by every known radical group claiming Islam as it’s excuse to slaughter people – be the it the dudes who flew planes into the Towers & Pentagon and …. the list of atrocities is endless.

        The usurpation of ‘god,’ to justify terror and slaughter is hardly unique to “Muslims,” as you know.

        The Crusades, the colonization and genocide of Native Peoples from the Arctic to the tip of Argentina by “Christians” being but other examples.

        So, my including it was indeed to force an equivalence between Trump and the very worst of 20th and 21st Century hate-mongers.

        Islam, as a religion, is an admirable framework within which millions find solace, joy and community – all of which I respect and defend no different than any other belief structure.

        Sorry if I caused offense.

  60. April 27, 2019 at 10:06 pm

    Pls see remarkable background on counter terrorist analyst Malcolm Nance:
    https://politicon.com/speaker/malcolm-nance/Malcolm Nance
    Malcolm Nance:
    “Donald Trump himself, the one component that has never been investigated was, was he compromised? No one has really looked into that. They looked into whether he colluded to a criminal conspiracy standard. But whether he was compromised, whether he owes money to Russia, whether he has some personal fealty to Vladimir Putin that we all see with our own eyes, that has never been answered. And so, until all of these things are addressed, until we get some clear solid answers, this nation is a national security nightmare. We know our information – 35 people in the White House weren’t even supposed to be cleared to let into the building – they were working there. President of the United State – best friend is a former KGB director. So again, we are going to remain vulnerable until we take these issues by the horns.” (c/o Colarossi)
    -oh thank you.

    “Analyzing 5 Persistent Myths About The Mueller Report”. (WaPo)
    “The redacted Mueller report has been out for 10 days, and yet misinformation persists. Whether because of partisanship, the length of the report, unfamiliarity with legal concepts, or straight-up lies, many false claims keep popping up again and again.”
