      How will we respond?
      This infant is suffering terribly and needs to be protected and nurtured – quietly with consistency, attention, and holding. If Mom was nursing baby, is a huge adjustment., and you never know how a baby will react to formula.

      Absolutely, and then some! Consolidation of power. Another ‘acting’ position.

      I have heard four different people suggest the following for the Dems in the next debate: Whatever question the moderator asks, every candidate should ignore the question and immediately go DT, the damage he has done, the damage he will continue to do. Have specific examples ready. Focus, focus, c
      Focus on him. Take control of the debate and keep control of it. They would all need to do it. Some of them could say there will be plenty of time for policy talk, then pivot immediately to the focus being on DT. I think this is a good idea. What say you all? What is the best way to get this suggestion to the candidates? Twitter?

    Today, Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA), Chairman of the House Government Operations subcommittee, released the following statement calling for the House of Representatives to start an impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump.

    “In their wisdom, the Founders rejected the idea of an executive branch that could go unchecked, and granted the power of impeachment to Congress – one of the most serious means of oversight we can undertake – to hold accountable those in high office, including the President. It is a serious action that must not be rushed, abused, or taken lightly. But after careful thought and consideration, I believe the time has come for the House of Representatives to begin an impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump. Four reasons lead me to this conclusion.

    First, the gravity of the revelations in the Special Counsel’s report and testimony before Congress should trouble all Americans. The report details at least ten instances in which the President of the United States obstructed justice. Further, it chillingly warns, “The protection of the criminal justice system from corrupt acts by any person – including the President – accords with the fundamental principle of our government that “[n]o [person] in this country is so high that he is above the law.” I firmly believe, but for the flawed Justice Department opinion, President Trump would be indicted for his actions.

    Second, I have seen firsthand the Trump administration’s across the board defiance of Congress’ legitimate investigations and subpoenas on everything from adding a citizenship question to the census to this Administration’s cruel and inhumane child separation policy. If these constitutionally-mandated oversight responsibilities are left undefended, our very democracy is threatened.

    Third, the American people have also been witness to a president who at every opportunity has chosen to disregard the rule of law and our constitution for his own enrichment. He continues to violate the emoluments clause and his conflicts of interest are rampant. He makes decisions not for the good of the country, but for his own benefit.

    Finally, I caution that we cannot allow ourselves to become so desensitized to the President’s behavior that there are no consequences. This is a man who continues to debase the office he holds. He has instilled fear and incited violence. He has called American communities infested, he has told members of Congress to go back to where they came from, he stoked the flames of white supremacy by repeatedly referring to an invasion of foreigners, and he has questioned the allegiance of our fellow Americans. At every moment, whether it was in the aftermath of Charlottesville or El Paso or Dayton, he has failed to heal our country and call us to our better angels. Instead, he has stained the Oval Office with his racism, xenophobia, and bigotry.

    We stand at a perilous moment for our country. No individual should be above the law. No individual should act the way this president behaves without consequence. No administration should be allowed to disregard the constitution at their whim. Now more than ever, Congress must assert its constitutional role and that is why I believe we must immediately start an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.”

    Goodnight TOD

    Another friend sent this last week, I have never listened to any of this mindbending propaganda, I did this one. Replied to her there is an excessive level of brainwashing going on, using rational sounding misinformation/disinformation, and sent a fact check link, which of course they failed. Processing this load of crap has been a heavy burden all week. I hesitated to pass it on to y’all, but this is what’s out there, and I weep.

    .ICE abducting brown parents while Trump is photo-popping with brown gun massacre victims and orphaned baby who could not refuse him.
    .ICE abandoned children in the streets and day cares without any plans or protections for them.
    .Sent a diabetic American citizen who only speaks English to die alone on Iraqi streets.

    Word is the U.S. economy is slowing and could do so dramatically.
    So King Benito wants to devalue the U.S. dollar, increase sales, and make hisself look better by Nov 2020.
    Meanwhile truth: “The tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese imports that Trump has imposed have driven up
    consumer prices, eroding corporate profits.”
    = Failed businessman and despotic traitorous Arse running amok.

    The legendary Mr. Richard Strzok:
    A “career employee with the FBI for 22 years before his firing in August 2018, Strzok had been a lead agent in the FBI’s “Operation Ghost Stories” against Andrey Bezrukov and Yelena Vavilova, a Russian spy couple who were part of the Illegals Program, a network of Russian sleeper agents who were arrested in 2010. By July 2015, Strzok was serving as the section chief of the Counterespionage Section.” (wiki)

    • August 9, 2019 at 12:41 pm

      Highly accomplished and respected Richard Strzok obviously put the fear of God up Benito.
      So he was fired. Not for his private emails, but for his genius in Russian spy-related investigations.

      KFC and Pizza Hut don’t taste as good as the way it used too, back in the day both products had more flavor. I’m not impressed with In n out burger or five guys, both of them are just your average burger joint. Chick fil A, please. The only thing Waffle House has going for them are their grits. Both IHOP and Olive Garden have gone done the drain as far as quality goes. Carl’s Jr, see Chick fil A. Taco Bell is a health hazard. McDonald’s and Wendy’s haven’t let me down so far, but Wendy’s is starting to slip just a tad bit. I’m not sure what ‘Bang’ is.
