      And Secretary Clinton was great too. Loved her comments. I also loved the applause she received. She should be our President.

      But will they get to vote? That state is so rife with voter suppression. I hope they can fix things before next year. Abrams was robbed.

        You’re right. There is definitely is a lot of voter suppression going on here. Stacey’s group and others are working on that. Hopefully massive voter turnout will be enough to offset the suppression. Get out the vote efforts will be crucial.

    Ok. I just listened to Barack Obama pay tribute to the life and work of an honorable man. I closed my eyes and let his voice and his words wash over me like a cool breeze. Tears stream down my face now because I miss him and his goodness… and I so want us to get back to that place again… and they flow because we have lost a great, good man when it just seems like we need more Elijah Cummings, not fewer.

          I also wept as I listened. One for the loss of the honorable man Elijah Cummings, and two for the beauty of hearing President Obama again. Chris Matthews said President Obama spoke for the ages…..yes, and for today, when we so desperately need him.

        Remembering how via Joining Forces: “1.25 million hiring commitments for veterans and military spouses from its corporate partners. It also has helped broker legislation enabling spouses to transfer certifications across all 50 states.” It was a landmark change in the perception and possibilities of returning military, giving voice to military family issues and creating real solutions. The list is long. e.g. PBO was behind Solar Ready Vets across 10 military bases to train transitioning personnel. Such a treasure trove of goodness from our First and 2nd Couple.

    Students were apparently instructed to stay in their dorms between 1pm and 4pm.
    At Benedict College yesterday Trump took credit and an award for signing a criminal justice reform bill last year. Reportedly he ‘permitted’ ten African American students to attend (perhaps the only 10 who offered to do so).
    –He called Kamala a “badly failing presidential candidate”.
    Kamala responded: “My whole life I’ve fought for justice and for the people — something you’d know nothing about. The only part of criminal justice you can claim credit for is the ‘criminal’ part.” Then: “Today, when it became clear Donald Trump would receive an award after decades of celebrating mass incarceration, pushing the death penalty for innocent Black Americans, rolling back police accountability measures and racist behavior that puts people’s lives at risk … I cannot in good faith be complicit in papering over his record.” (politicus.usa)
    –Brava Kamala.

      “Working at the direction of a Russian government official, Alexander Torshin,
      Butina infiltrated Republican political circles and the National Rifle Association
      around the time of the 2016 election in order to promote Russian interests.
      In September of 2019, an investigation by Senate Democrats determined that the NRA has acted as a “foreign asset” in providing Russian officials access to US political organizations.
      In court documents, prosecutors argued that Butina’s efforts had the hallmarks of a Russian espionage operation, suggesting that she was acting as a “spotter” by identifying people who have the ability to influence policy in Russia’s favor, as a set of targets Russian spies could potentially cultivate. Investigators from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team questioned Butina on only one occasion for approximately an hour. Her name was left out of the final version of the Special Counsel’s redacted report. Many questions about the full scope of Maria Butina’s activities in the United States remain unanswered.”
      (https://www.thedailybeast.com/maria-butina-receives-heros-welcome-in-moscow?source=twitter&via=desktop)
      –Of course “Butina told Russian state media that the American rule of law is “just an illusion.”
      –Yet somehow…there she is in Moscow.

      Setting up an authoritarian state controlled by oligarchs,
      who protect the oligarchs,
      Not the country,
      Involves getting rid of career officials who understand what is going on,
      and replacing them with Trump’s chosen people,
      who serve him,
      instead of the country.

    Heard Kamala will now speak at Benedict College. Seems the College got conned into confining the students to their dorms. And allowed a financial sponsor to set up a Trump rally attended by 10 African American students. Sponsor is out. Trump bad-mouthed Kamala while achieving this. I hope the College and students respond.

      I have two things to say. Trump is being Impeached and Trump is a Pathological Liar. I don’t believe anything he and his administration says. This is Trump’s Osama Bin Laden moment, big difference here President Obama wasn’t a Pathological Liar. We all know that Trump will do anything and I mean anything to distract us. Trump can not be trusted. So this ISIS leader suppose to have blew his self up with a suicide vest. Two things: TRUMP IS BEING IMPEACHED AND TRUMP IS A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR.

      • 95 Hillary Darton
        October 27, 2019 at 5:45 am

        Remember the iconic picture of President Obama, SOS Clinton, VP Biden and the General all sitting in that room watching the raid on bin Laden. Watch and see if we don’t get a photo like that with Trump, Pence, Pompeo. It could be true that the ISIS leader was kill, but I don’t trust Trump one bit.

    Morning everyone. Nothing like trying to change the subject to try and get out from under an impeachment inquiry, by telling everyone you had the ISIS leader killed. Personally, I don’t believe or trust him, the pathological liar that he is. I want a DNA test, just like Bin Laden had to have before the world believed HE was dead. Until that happens, it’s just hearsay. Just saying.
