    How refreshing! Listening to a sane/intelligent person talk (Sec of State Clinton). I look forward to watching the current President twist and leave no doubt that not only is he not a stable leader, but he is corrupt and compromised. His defenders/enablers need to go down big time.

    I love the look on the face of then Congressman Mike Pence after President Obama cleaned the clock of the GOP caucus at a health care Q&A captured live on C-Span back in 2010. To put it mildly, Obama schooled them. Watch for yourself: https://www.c-span.org/video/?291730-1/presidential-remarks-house-republican-conference.⁣ ⁣ The way it’s going, there’s a chance Pence becomes the next president for just a few months next year. Which means this could become a photo of 44 and 46 (before 47–the Democratic nominee–is elected next November). ⁣ ⁣ 😎 #ThrowShadeThenVote⁣

      Oh, do I remember that glorious day! One of the best in my life. After that day, Orange Senator John Boener swore not to go near POTUS Obama for fear of a repeat of the same. Schooling, that is.

        It is impossible to forgive Republicans. Obama extended an olive branch, but was treated like he was no child of God. With the enraged members of the so-called Tea Party and other racists fueling conspiracies and lies – from his place of birth to Michelle’s gender- here we are today with a deranged man in the WH surrounded by scared fools without scruple and as corrupt as never seen before.

            That was such a glorious day. I so loved the way he schooled all of them. They thought he didn’t know anything about the bill. We know the current President couldn’t hold a candle to him.

    Chairman Schiff and Speaker Pelosi news conference.
    Response to GOP trying to say we’re making too much of the call:
    CHAIRMAN SCHIFF:
    “If you think about what the Framers were concerned about during the drafting of the Constitution:
    The Framers paramountly concerned about foreign interference in American affairs. They wanted to ensure the president of the United States was defending the national security of the United States and not corruptly security advancing some private agenda with a foreign power. It is hard to imagine a set of circumstances that would have alarmed more than what’s on that call. Where you have a president using the full power of his office to try to effectively coerce a foreign leader that is completely dependent on our country, for military, economic, diplomatic and other support to intervene in our election to help his campaign. It’s hard to imagine a more corrupt course of conduct. So to my Republicans colleagues that say ‘there’s nothing to see here…or yeh but is it something to remove the president from office’…They are going to have to to answer. If this conduct doesn’t rise to the level of the concern the founders have, what conduct does?…suspensio of mil assistance undisputed…
    call record is pretty indisputed, suspension of military assistance is undisputed, sequestration of this call record and maybe others into a file in which they were never supposed to be placed, a file that is for classified action of the highest order, covert action for example, those facts are not contested, read all the facts around that, we still need to flesh that out: What was the state department’s role, what was the secretary’s role, what was the role of the attorney general, there’s a great more we need to know to know the full depth of the president’s conduct…there seems to be no floor below which the president can drop that some of the gop members…would not be willing to endorse, look away from, let alone rise to condemn as incompatible with the duties of his office. ”
    More…

        I feel the same way…our country is the throes of an existential threat right now…and i do not believe that these debates address this,.,,and why are we increasing the number of candidates…tired of the wranglement between candidates

          Other years, the debates seemed important. Maybe it’s just because of all the hellish things we have to put up with from trump on the daily! Ugh. But – the good part – he’s going down, so there’s that!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey TOD family, This past week, we have been cleaning out files, purging a LOT of stuff, re-organizing what is left, etc. I had all the things from my mother’s death in another closet and wanted to get them with other family members/friends obits and other memorabilia. Of course, I started reading things and crying and reading and crying. I found pages of comments from my TOD family after I shared her death.

    Sharing this because I want to list some names from the past. Oh, the memories. Here goes: hopefruit2, anniebella, daisydem, 99ts, RanMan, 57andfemale, CarolMaeWY, otter44, rikyrah, yarndarm756, theo67, jackiegrumbacher, nospin, Puddin’ and HZ. I did not list those that are still around and commenting.

    This served as another reminder of what Chipsticks built and Nerdy Wonka has been gracious enough to keep going. How important this place is (and has been) to so many people cannot be measured. THANK YOU Chips and NW!

        Read this carefully. Reread parts. Frankly, it makes a lot of sense. Regarding EW: Is it possible that this whole Joe Biden thing is to damage him enough to not get the nomination and hoping/thinking that EW will get the nod and that is who they REALLY want to run against because, of course, she will be branded constantly and non stop as a socialist. Thoughts from anyone?

    “And these ellipses don’t come at random moments. There are three sets of ellipses in the document.
    Two come during Trump’s veer into conspiracy theories, looking to shift blame for interference in the 2016 elections away from Russia, when he said, “I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it.” The third comes when Trump is asking Zelensky to dig for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, and says, “Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… It sounds horrible to me.” In other words, at the two crucial moments in the call, the impeachable moments, when Trump is leaning on Zelensky, saying, “I would like you to do us a favor though” and outlining what that favor entails, there’s punctuation suggesting something has been omitted.” (DK)
