      This means he KNEW that Russia helped him!!!

        Yiss.
        Figured he could do whatever he wanted and bully whoever he wanted, not just business people.

          Yup! He figured he was CEO of the USA. That is why he totally does not understand Congress’s power. He has used the courts and law loopholes all his life to avoid problems by delaying them or costing his opponents too much to pursue him in legal challenges.

    “NRA acted as “foreign asset” for Russia
    Senate Democrat finds.”
    “The National Rifle Association was a “foreign asset for Russia” during the 2016 election, an 18-month investigation by Senate Finance Committee Democrats finds. The NRA enthusiastically sought to help Maria Butina and Alexander Torshin insinuate themselves into right-wing circles on behalf of Russia, and NRA officials absolutely knew that Butina and Torshin were linked to the Russian government, not just independent Russian gun-lovers—literally Butina emailed NRA officials that the 2015 Moscow visit by some NRA leaders was important because “many powerful figures in the Kremlin are counting on Torshin to prove his American connections.”

    I hope that Trumpy’s illegitimate (imo) presidency is proven … and that every single judicial appointment is reversed. Bad behaviour should not be rewarded! Moscow Mitch can go suck lemons.

    Note to Deplorables: I admire your courage in supporting an administration that has sold you and your country out. It must really take a LOT of COURAGE to continue supporting him.

    I am being totally snarky of course but … how they allow themselves to be fooled is beyond comprehension.

      I have been hoping his judicial picks and laws signed would be negated too. I had a Dream after I heard someone talking about the history of citizens tearing down the Berlin Wall that after Trump is Impeached and arrested (I know, I know wishful thinking) that citizens here tear down Trump’s wall/fence.

    More on Timothy Snyder’s book “On Tyranny” (interviewed last night by RM):
    “Snyder, a professor of history at Yale, dwells on the insights of Victor Klemperer, the great Jewish philologist
    who studied the ways that the Nazis commandeered language before they commandeered everything else. Klemperer noted how Hitler’s language explicitly undermined all and any opposition.
    ‘The people’ always meant some people and not others… encounters were always ‘struggles’ and any attempt
    by free people to understand the world in a different way was ‘defamation’ of the leader.”
    –Sound familiar at all?

    • September 28, 2019 at 12:33 pm

      Klemperer’s “The Language of the Third Reich” is astonishing, though I didn’t manage to plough through it all. He showed how the language of the 3rd Reich helped to create its culture.
      imo Trumpsky’s limited vocabulary and patterns of (un)speech, bad spelling, uninformed, disinformed, crappy tweets…must please the pro-fascist architects.

    “Trump used a narrowing of language in an identical way to that which Klemperer described,
    and has emphasised his populist project by the subordination of word to image.
    This is a presidency being shaped by the techniques and tone of television and Twitter and YouTube, rather than the progression of rational argument through sentence and paragraph.
    Trump’s admission that he never reads a book all the way through is symptomatic of his rhetorical style.
    He offers a “highly constrained [language] to starve the public of the concepts needed to think about the past, present and future”, Snyder argues.
    In the president’s frame of reference events are only ever bad or sad or mad. With his Dr Seuss vocabulary, he can present the world as a place of simplistic oppositions, stripped of nuance.”
    (https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/mar/20/on-tyranny-twenty-lessons-from-twentieth-century-timothy-snyder-review)
    Timothy Snyder :”“We are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism in the last century. Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience…””

      jazziz2, I had just turn the tv to MSNBC and I came across that young woman, I heard her singing Michael Jackson’s song call Earth Song and I said who is that young lady? So I sat there and watch her and the way she was playing that guitar, dog she was killing it. I went online to check her (H.E.R.) out.

    Chuck Todd is not a journalist. He is a fraud hack no different than the fraud hucksters at FOX IMO.He collects a paycheck. That is all. He doesn’t bother himself with the minutiae of reading to learn facts of issues. I can’t stand this lazy SOB. Never could.

    MoscowMitch and the Kremlin-owned NRA:
    “The NRA knew that Butina and Torshin were Kremlin operatives, and jumped in with both feet.
    NRA leadership traveled to Moscow in 2015, and when then-NRA Vice President Pete Brownell went to Russia on what was supposedly a private, personal visit to explore business opportunities, the NRA covered some of the costs. The report shows, using contemporaneous emails and interviews, that the NRA was knowingly and purposefully building ties with Russia and with the Kremlin. While Wyden’s focus was the NRA and proving it has been violating its tax-exempt status, the flip side is that Russia used the NRA as another means to infiltrate American politics, specifically the Republican party.”
    (https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/9/27/1888308/-Moscow-Mitch-and-the-Kremlin-owned-NRA)
    Senator Wyden, Chair of Senate Finance Committee to Hayes:
    “The R in NRA stands for Russia.”

    • September 29, 2019 at 11:44 am

      “And few Republicans have been more of a friend to the NRA than Moscow Mitch.
      His career has been built in large part by the $1.3 million he’s received from the NRA. It’s a symbiotic relationship—together they team up to intimidate Republicans into doing nothing to end the epidemic of gun violence in America. It’s the stuff of wild conspiracy theory fiction, but it’s all very real and happening out in the open. And it all goes back to Putin. All the way from the White House to an NRA-friendly Supreme Court and the one figure tying it all together—Mitch McConnell. He’s not even trying to disguise the fact that he’s in a relationship with Moscow, from guns to election security to selling out his home state’s industries. Wyden’s investigation illuminates just one more rotten part of his corruption.”
