    Trump to Ukraine President Zelensky: “I want you to do us a favor though”.
    GOP Kevin McCarthy to Scott Pelley: “You just added another word”.
    Scott Pelley replied: ““Yes, it’s in the White House transcript.”

      I’ve watched 60 minutes since I was a kid every Sunday. I was always amazed at all the smart people that would come on the show. I thought that you had to know what you were talking about. Only a fool would go on 60 minutes unprepared, McCarthy doesn’t have the brain power to even bullshit his way through an interview. I refuse to believe that his appearance was greenlighted by the powers that run the GOP.

    Climate crisis.
    How about all the prez candidates show how it’s done, get together:
    And hash out a unified agreement on climate action? Many differences but it could be done. This would demonstrate the importance of the climate crisis (#1 issue in all the land). They’d be willing to tinker with it and accept ideas but the approach would be as One. The media would still question. Our fabulous candidates would get the information and supreme planetary urgency out there.

    Chairman Schiff:
    ““Some argue the cover-up is the bigger crime,” Schiff said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.
    “The more serious offense, he argued, is that “the president is once again not just inviting but coercing a foreign nation to get involved to try to help him with yet another presidential election.””

    Thank you NW for providing us with this space.

    I hope Trump realizes that it is not fair if he is getting impeached and Pence isn’t. Cuz I would think Pence is in deep too. Donald … when you go to the big house, please take Pence with you.

      Well the Democrats are in a full impeachment inquiry, so they are holding Trump accountable AND it’s not certain that the Senate won’t remove him from office…it depends on the argument and the evidence, so I wouldn’t just dismiss it and say the Senate won’t remove him from office. I don’t think that anymore.

      Apparently they say he was very disoriented today (there’s video) at the Pentagon ceremony. Leaning forward again, not noticing people in his row had moved and he was supposed to be part of the pack, etc.

      I’d say he was faking it because of all his other antics, but sorta kinda believe he’s not up to it and hasn’t been for quite a while. And nobody cares enough about him to talk to him about resigning.

    A former Ukrainian lawmaker deeply familiar with the Giuliani dirt-digging campaign told me Trump’s phone call to the Ukrainian president asking for an investigation into the Bidens, while withholding vital military aid, was “pressure,” “blackmail,” and “quid pro quo.”

    “AG Barr personally pressed foreign intelligence to discredit U.S. intelligence on 2016 election.”
    “It’s a bad day to be Attorney General William Barr.
    While The New York Times has a blockbuster of a story about how he engineered Donald Trump’s request to Australia’s Prime Minister for help in discrediting the Mueller probe, The Washington Post reports that he’s been overseas trying to get foreign intelligence officials to help, too.
    Barr is looking for assistance to bolster a Justice Department investigation that would counter the Mueller report—one that would make Russia not be the bad guys of the 2016 election.”

      Barr is seeking assistance from foreign entities to discredit members of his own Department of Justice and the appointed special counsel, in an effort to assist trump in furthering his 2020 election/political goals and rewriting the history of the 2016 election in his favor.

      No conflicts of interest there, eh?

            I am a visual learner (artist, retired elementary teacher). I used to be an excellent speller, but after grading papers seeing misspellings for years my own spelling suffered. Seeing words misspelled over and over puts a different visual memory in my brain.

      Pretty sure Volker was close to McCain in some of his endeavors to assist Ukraine with their goals to move forward (don’t quote me) … so if he flips on trump, that’ll be a two-fer on payback.

    I’m really upset by this young girl at a school in VA, who said classmates held her down & cut off her dreadlocks. When I watch TV, I actually watch body language (got that Susan Smith one down pat, the woman who drowned her babies & tried to say she was carjacked by a Black man, nah) & in initial story of this young girl, I felt something wasn’t quite right. Well, tonight’s news is that story wasn’t true. Why, young girl did you need to do so? 😔 Am still trying to wrap my sadness around that story.

      That’s Dana Bash’s doing. She’s an avid GOP supporter, so anything to suppress the democrats by erasing the role of black women is something she’ll do. She doesn’t realize it just makes them stronger.

    Investigate the RNC:
    “Officials in Montana are warning residents for the second time this year about surveys
    sent by the Republican National Committee THAT MIIMIC THE LOOK OF FEDERAL CENSUS FORMS,
    with the goal of soliciting money for President Trump’s reelection campaign.
    The mailers are labeled “2019 Congressional District Census” and inform recipients that they’ve been “selected to represent Voters” in Bozeman, Mont. The accompanying literature makes repeated requests for DONATIONS,
    urging recipients to send at least $15 to “help pay for the costs of processing [the] Census Document” if they are unable to afford an amount in the requested range of $25 to $1,000.
    –The RNC doing illegal stuff as usual. Among other things in MT they were caught funding the “Green Party”.
    –MT is probably still one of the lowest paid states in the country.
    –(Billionaire congressmen GIanforte and Danes are currently running ads denying Trump’s crimes.)
    –The working people of MT must be informed about the RNC’s latest crime..

    Tried to find vid, but do remember a weird (at that moment) where Barr, as new AG, turned to Speaker Nancy & said something about putting him in handcuffs. She ignored his arse. Fly swatted his attitude. That was deep. And Barr should’ve known better than to try to goad Nancy. Classic. Now, w/ the last few days news, that conversation makes sense.

    Reminds me of Suffragets, 60’s , 70s, 80’s feminists, etcetera. Until white women & men stand up en masse & acknowledge their own internal fears of whatevers (because it can now only be about the growing fungus of non-reconciliation), we will repeat & rinse forevermore. It’s about time. It’s not up to women of color to keep saving the nation. Ask those 53% white women who voted for iQ45 WTF malpractice therapy program were they on? Bottom line, POC are tired of rinse & repeat. Done. Either we do it now as equals & build a country that reflects our next generation & beyond, or we sit in our foolish stew. And am totally w/ Bobfr on reconciliation. That has to be done. You can’t brush all under the rug & not think it won’t rise up w/ the dust & biting mites. May yr arse be spared from mighty mites! 😂

    Rachel Maddow’s new book ‘Blowout’ was released at midnight and a book tour is coming up. (yeh!)
    In a brief interview with Hayes (my take on it):
    RM described the way oil and gas “contract sanctity” affects politics, corrupts national and local governments, rigs revenue systems, creates Inequality around the world and geopolitical trouble, destroys countries. For example in Guinea the people are poor, infant mortality is up and education down, the fossil fuel “resource curse” is benefiting only wealthy elites and a government minority. A familiar story around the planet. (Hayes called it the “ruthlessly amoral space” that surrounds oil and gas.)

    • October 1, 2019 at 11:53 am

      We must stop extracting fossil fuels and leave them in the ground:
      Emissions are increasing in China, India (and here). Maddow sees that due to our massive climate crisis, the oil and gas industry inevitably will end and big geo-political changes will follow. (“Be prepared”).
      O & G corrodes democracy and the industry will have to be stopped by democratic means, including scientific innovation and democratic power.

    • October 1, 2019 at 11:55 am

      Putin’s plans to mess up democracy and good government are right under our global noses.
      Maddow looks at how Putin gets his way using oil and gas = his only asset. While Putin is a very rich kleptocrat, Russia’s economy is failing. Badly.
      *****Hence the reason why Putin requires sanctions to be lifted.******
