    “Recordings made by Cohen show that Trump was not only aware of the scheme, but negotiating the details and instructing Cohen on the steps to take. Trump even involved members of his campaign staff, including Hope Hicks, in the scheme, going back and forth with Cohen on details of both how to deceive the women and how to hide the source of the funds.”(https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/7/19/1872947/-That-Justice-Department-rule-has-saved-Trump-from-indictment-again)
    -Free pass for Trump while co-conspirator Cohen is in the clink. Check. How many passes before go-to-jail card?
    -Wondering what else is being filed away to save face. For example how patriotic is it really to cover up all the
    Disco King’s national security crimes?

    NOW: Sen. Warren campaigns in Orange City, Iowa – https://abcnews.go.com/Live/video/speciaL-live-2

    “Catholics in Iowa went to church. Steve Bannon tracked their phones.”
    “If your phone’s ever been in a Catholic church, it’s amazing, they got this data,” Bannon told director Alison Klayman as they sat in his Washington, D.C., home on the eve of the 2018 midterm elections. “Literally, they can tell who’s been in a Catholic church and how frequently,” Bannon added. “And they got it triaged.”
    “Campaigns have been using cell-phone location data for years.”
    Happy ending: And “the data guy sells it”.

    Limbaugh: “Nobody is a fiscal conservative anymore…
    All this talk about concern for the deficit and the budget has been BOGUS for as long as it’s been around.”
    All the fear-mongering about the deficit when PBO was in office.
    FACT: President Obama cut the deficit by two thirds.

    • July 19, 2019 at 12:00 pm

      “The late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., spent the entirety of his 2008 presidential campaign warning about rising deficits, CNN noted. The 2010 rise of the Tea Party, which fueled massive Republican gains in that year’s midterm elections, was fueled largely by claims that federal spending was out of control. Former House Speaker Paul Ryan made an entire career out of rhetoric decrying the rising national debt. Then he led the charge to approve a $1.5 trillion tax cut for the rich and corporations, leading to the $1 trillion deficit Republicans apparently no longer care about.”

    Senator Harris was DA here back then and went to Iowa in 2007 to campaign on the ground for Senator Obama. Inspired others to take the trip. She would also drop into our phone banks here in SF to thank and encourage us.

      Me too! So sad that we can repeat history when we already know how evil it was. (Hitler) There seems to be such an extreme selfishness, greed, and entitlement attitude in our Country today. I think of entitlement as meaning people thinking they deserve things over other people. Example: 1% and Company owners and CEOs deciding they are more worthy (better) than others or due to a so called superior Race, Class or Religion. I do not believe in the Conservative definition that MIT Romney used towards regular income or poor people wanting more than they deserve or robbing from the rich and “deserving” people.

    Had a cat who would check out the expression on your face if you were laughing. It seemed he was checking to see if you were laughing at him. Animals really do pay attention to our expressions. Anyway…
    I love this: Remember when Iran shot down a U.S. drone and Benito M. Trump took it as an act of war?
    Well now reportedly, the opposite has happened and Iran has shot down a U.S. drone.
    -Trump says yes it happened…celebrating…whatever.
    -Iran says No they have all their drones thanks.

    Carolyn here…..several times I have mentioned my pastor’s sermons, and how excellent they are. Well, now I am going to advertise a bit. A movie has been made about our church and a church in Tulsa. The movie is called American Heretics and tells the story of how a young pastor came to red OKC and purposely turned his church into a bastion of liberal progressive action. We are a total anomaly in red Oklahoma, and our pastor and associate pastor have been threatened and castigated by the fundamentalist Christians for years. However, our church is actually growing in the midst of a religious decline. The movie has been to Telluride and other festivals, and is reviewed in the New York Times. The company spent time last fall filming at church and time interviewing members and the pastors. It is showing here in OKC this week into next at a specialty theater called Rodeo cinema. I haven’t seen it yet but plan to see it Sunday. We are a strange mix of people who are attracted to and act on the social justice message. If you see it showing anywhere, and see it, I think you will be encouraged. Our pastor, Robin Meyers, has been in Australia where the film is being shown also.

    This is James Baldwin’s letter to Angela Davis in November 1971. Well worth a read, sadly, after all this time, still relevant to our times.

        It makes me so bereft when I see this “rinse-repeat” actions over & over. But I truly love brilliant authors. Baldwin was brilliant in expressing & writing about the folly of racism. In all these dark days, his writing & humor has made me wish so much that I could have had the pleasure of sitting in his space & have a conversation, about anything & everything. Yeah, dreams are a beaut! 😇
