    Naomi Klein: “I don’t know a kid in the world who doesn’t have their first response to the climate crisis being “Oh my god! Why isn’t everybody acting on this? Why isn’t everybody understanding this is an emergency?” The problem is then that the next wave of messages they get is a message of “be reassured,” when we shouldn’t be reassured. So I think that’s part of why Greta is playing this prophetic role, because she trusted her first instinct, and she’s not mirroring this insane society.”

    Thread. She is absolutely right. Watching All In right now. I’m angry(again…still) and my heart is breaking

      Wow….she is saying that the HOUSE is complicit….Who is she to say that…democrats eating other dems….attacking the House…blaming them for Trumps corruption….

        This kills me, too. First, she’s referring to the House as Congress, when both the House and Senate make up Congress (one of my pet peeves from people who should know better), so it reads like an offhanded remark. And, in case she’s forgotten, she’s in the Senate and a part of Congress. Second, the Senate will not vote on impeachment because of the damn RWNJs WHICH SHE SHOULD BE BLAMING. Third, it’s easy for everyone to yell out “Impeach” but extremely tricky when the House committees are having to go to court just to get people to come testify. Etc. Etc. Etc. You know all this – just letting off some steam with ya!

      Have to pay attention to the gradual decline of democracy happening.
      Have to fight back, can’t let it go…let it slide…then suddenly oops too late. Look what’s happening today!
      Barr and WH potentially rewriting the whistleblower report, as with the Mueller report. In the history of the nazis, first they shut the government down, then one norm after another destroyed.Then collapse and the nazis took control.

      I very respectfully disagree. Congressional Dems have not and are not failing and this tweet shapes my feelings about Warren. It’s not the first time she has been on the wrong side of something and not supported something when she should have known better (the TPP). The only thing that I can see that is good about the fact that we don’t seem to have learned our collective lesson on how not to be manipulated by smear campaigns is that this may give Trump’s criminal enterprise a false sense of security. He may think the tv pundits are right and Pelosi has just be dragging her feet because she’s not up to the task. Boy will he be wrong and people who scapegoat her now are just part of the overall problem not the solution. She needs our back. Sound familiar to anyone.

      NPR also kicked off with the usual “fair and balanced…well Joe must have done something if Trump is blaming him” playground strategy. So if i name the Head of NPR and link it to ‘Ukraine’ maybe that’ll fix it.
      Reality is Trump is oozing with guilt even if he cannot feel it, and he is to blame, no one else.

    Remember that one of the main things all Dems said before (and after) the 2018 election was that if they won, they would be a check on this president/administration. Well, they are not doing that. Sure, hearings and investigations, but zero ACTION. Today, I called three offices: Pelosi, Nadler and Schiff. An example I gave Nadler’s office for ACTION was Corey L. being charged immediately with contempt and put in jail and/or fined $10,000 a day. I pointed out that we worked and gave them the “power” do stop this man and they.are.not.doing.it. The natives are getting restless.

    Wouldn’t go as far as being complicit. However, the only thing Dems are doing different is speaking up and the investigations, etc. As far as DOING something to change or stop what 45 is doing……nothing. He continues to break the law every day, sometimes numerous times during the day. I do not understand what Pelosi is doing! She, like others, talks and threatens, but……….nada! So over it.

    I remember reading here or in an article posted on FB awhile back that five countries including Russia were involved in attacks against our 2016 election. I do not remember who wrote the article, but UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Israel and Russia were mentioned.

    I also read about this current whistle blower incident involving Rudy Giuliani going to Ukraine to convince them to either dig up or make up dirt on Hunter Biden. It must have been closer to when it actually happened.

    I also remember reading about Bin Laden’s son being killed closer to the beginning of the year. That info just came out in the press in the last two weeks.

    I keep thinking these are kept out of the press until Trump wants to mess with the press and change the subject to take the heat off himself.

      Ditto to your comment, df. Unlike the folks in US Congress now. Just heard an excellent and on target discussion on AM Joy. Two main points from history: LBJ signing civil rights legislation and how he and others knew (and stated) what the political results would be. Fast forward to Nancy Pelosi pushing through the ACA, knowing that some of her people would lose their seats …… and that happened. She focused on doing the best right thing, not the best political thing. Now, forward to the present and she REFUSES to do the right thing, the CONSTITUTIONAL thing and is instead doing the political thing. That is the bottom line of what I keep ranting about here. In trying to protect her conservative Dems, she is risking losing all other Dems which is definitely a larger number! I.GET.MORE.ANGRY.EVERY.DAY. More discouraged and more frightened for our democracy.

    MSNBC (with Alex Witt) just covered a quick press grab with Joe Biden at the Iowa Steak Fair (think it’s called) and he was hot. Check it out if you have the chance. He spoke to the issue of Ukraine, Hunter Biden, and trump. Said he never discussed Hunter’s business activities with him. Seemed to say all the right words and told the reporters to ask the right questions – about trump’s actions – not to get mired in the trump/giuliani diversionary stuff. His line was “I’m going to beat trump like a drum.”

    Works for me.

    REGARDING IMPEACHING TRUMP:

    … It is a nightmare for Pelosi. The only thing worse would be succeeding in such an effort. A removed Trump would leave millions of enraged and energized Trump voters and an undamaged Republican nominee for the 2020 presidential election. …

      Honestly, this angers me.
      In June 1973, only 19% were OK for impeaching Nixon. tRump does 10x what Nixon was accused of monthly. The Impeachment proceedings started in Feb of 1974. Impeachment is in the Constitution. If the chronic lying bastard illegally occupying the White House is Not a candidate for impeachment, then This Republic & her Constitution=Rubbish.
      Those in Congress, who are still dithering from principle….to doing the right thing, perhaps, should rethink their profession.

        👍👍👍👍👏👏👏👏👏👏👍👍👍👍! Please see my comment earlier. Same message as yours, just stated differently. Pelosi needs to put politics aside and uphold the Constitution. Sadly, we are usually saying that about the Rs.

        Also saw a tweet — If only the Dems would go after tRump with the same fervor as they went after Al Franken! 😳😥

  34. September 21, 2019 at 1:45 pm

    Have a lot more to say but I’ve had…a nice run…so gonna say it.
    Trump has more than one handler yanking his strings. Bin Salman is up in lights at the moment.
    We are experiencing a COUP.
    In the morning when we get up, whether we slept or not, or dreamed or not, this is a coup.
    Not a Ford Coupe,
    a COUP.

        A COUP, yes! Again, on AM Joy, she and her guests went through the timeline, day by day, from July 28. When they got to Dan Coates resigning, then him telling his backup she had to resign, someone made the point that that cleared the deck for trump to install another ‘acting’ yes man. Then one of them said, “Coup complete.” Of course, someone added that he already has the DOJ/AG it really is a coup. He’s even got the military paying him to stay in his hotel. Repeat one more time, Pelosi better step up SOON. If she doesn’t, all the talking points in the world about legislating will be a mute point.

    I think I got that heading correct. Maybe not. Just read a discouraging article on FB saying SC Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is trying to let people down gently. She said there will be a lot of decisions coming out in this next month decided in a 5-4 party line vote including the census and other important topics. Sounds scary, discouraging and beyond hope. I would hate all of Trump’s underhanded ways with packing the Supreme Court to actually work for him. Creating a protective barrier force around himself is evident. My hope was Karma would prevail, especially since his lifetime of gifting and conning needed to come to an end.

    Good Morning …TOD…

    I am weary of the attacks on Nancy Pelosi..Speaker of the HOUSE…whom just 6-7 mos ago was deemed a genius…”GENUIS”

    Some DEMS are out to eat their own..the visceral and hateful comments towards Speaker Pelosi are incredible…..FTR The House is conducting Impeachment hearings…they are going to court to get documents and to force folks to testify…it does not have the epic feel of the Watergate Hearings….( and i wonder how Epic the hearings were in real time)…Because Dems are following Rule Of Law and democratic norms..they are made to seem weak…we know what the media would say if the DEMS came to the hearings acting Thuggish…Truth of the matter Pelosi does not have the votes for Impeachment…134 votes for Impeachment…takes 216 to carry the vote…

    There is so much hand wringing going on re: the lawless and unconstitutional behavior of Trump..we feel panicked and helpless…i have felt that way at times myself…

    RE Trump…He will not be removed from office…i do not know if there is anything that Trump can do that will make the Congressional GOP hold Trump accountable…they overlook his lawlessness….and they themselves engage in unconstitutional and undemocratic practices…

    So what are #WeThePeople to do…we can sit on twitter and bemoan the trifle-ness of this administration…or we can get involved…register folks to vote…phone banking…donate time and money…etc….

    David Plouff has a podcast…i listened this morning..it was good…had me looking at the 2020 election in a different way…a more strategic way…he says that although he would like for our presidents to be elected by the popular vote…that is not how it is.. It is the Electoral College that votes for the president..so that we have to ever focused on getting 270 electoral votes

    he was on PodSaveAmeric…as well…

    here is the link to his intro for his podcast..his first interview was with Greg Shultz…VP Biden’s campaign manager

    i have seen comments that say that the HOUSE DEMS are too meek…that they should not play the democratic way…if the other side is not…and that the DEMS should be more like the GOP, etc….

    how does the Village feel about this…

    I remember what I was taught as a child, “Two wrongs don’t make a right.” I know, I know there is always a trite little saying that could be thrown out there to counter it like, “All is fair in love and war.” BUT I never prescribed to that latter saying. I internalized the first one. If I act exactly like my opponents how is that taking the high ground?
