    I laughed at myself just now for “fighting the good fight” at 7:30 a.m., but then I came here, saw Nerdy’s new post, and knew I was back in good company again! Good morning, TODville!

    Good Morning, Obama Diary Family. Although, I’m mostly lurking these days, I’m still here.

    Thanks again to Nerdy for keeping this site going, and to the regulars for keeping us informed and sane.

    I find it disturbing when I hear the media and see tweets referring to the impeachment hearings as “boring”. I did not realize we were going through this process for the entertainment value….though I shouldn’t be surprised since it seems that many think it’s okay that agent Orange has been allowed to turn our government into a reality show.

    Do we have to have information presented to us in pictures and bullet points to hold our attention? Are people ignoring the substance of the testimonies?

    I’m am glad that Adam Schiff is keeping these hearings civil and not allowing it to become a circus. Otherwise, the focus would be more on the theatrics rather than what this impeachment inquiry is all about…bringing to light the MANY violations against this country and our democracy, and highlighting how this oval office occupant and his partners in crime are a threat to our national security.

    “Tucker Carlson Showcases Rising Eco-Fascist Response To Climate Change:
    Last week, Senator Bernie Sanders released an immigration plan for his presidential platform,
    which included a significant climate component in that it would welcome some 50,000 people displaced by climate change. In response, on Monday Tucker Carlson questioned the proposal in a way that fits comfortably with his decade-long embrace of white nationalism, asking ‘Why would a climate migrant have a right to come to my country?’ Now, to state the obvious, this is not Carlson’s country. But the question does reveal something about Carlson, which is that he considers the United States a place for white people like him, as opposed to being a nation of immigrants seeking a better life. (The indigenous people who lived here for millennia before European colonization do not appear to exist in Carlson’s conception.) As folks were quick to point out on Twitter, what followed was a clear display of eco-fascism, with Carlson invoking a sort of ‘blood and soil climate nationalism’ by complaining that welcoming immigrants (who were displaced by climate change, a problem for which the US is
    by far the greatest historic contributor) would be ‘crowding the country’.”

    Insect decimation…
    “In the continental US that I have visited recently, the signs of a 95% drop in the population of flying insects is something that apparently has not attracted attention or interest.
    The first real job I had after Viet-Nam was in technical field service….In some weeks I might put in a mileage chit for over 1,000 miles. Stopping to refuel also meant scraping the insects off the windshield while the gasoline was flowing…If anybody had told me back then that you could drive from Seattle to Dallas in late June and only hit four or five bugs, I would have asked which alternate universe their planet was in.” (Sherbardigan, daily kos)
    —anyone else remember stopping to clean the windscreen on the highway due to thousands of insects?

    Congrats, Jacqueline, and also to Gov. John Bel Edwards for holding on. I am still on the fence about whom to support in the D primary, but I volunteered to be a worker bee at a private fundraiser for VP Biden yesterday. At the end, he invited the volunteers to come upstairs to take a photo with him. I had a chance to tell him I was an OFA Chapter lead while he was in the White House with President Obama and that my daughter’s best friend since kindergarten, Ariana, works for him at the Penn-Biden Foundation. He held my hand and we had a nice moment. His speech to the 100 donors was a bit rambling but full of important points about foreign policy, climate change, and other critical topics.

    Morning all … should PP resign, can he still be charged for the same reason(s) as for impeachment? Once he is out of the office?

      I think that if Pence pardons Trump that would cover whatever he’s being impeached for and that he couldn’t be tried for the same crime twice. The federal government won’t be Trump’s biggest problem if he resigns or is impeached, the Southern District of New York is waiting in the wings to get a chance.

        Thanks Don. I hope SDNY gets that chance. Eveything that PP’s organization earned through corrupt methods should be taken away.

    • November 17, 2019 at 6:45 pm

      If Trump resigns the NY Attorney General, among others, will prosecute and convict him and neither Pence or anyone else can prevent that from happening.

      Trump knows that either he stays in office or he’s going to jail, unless he dies first.

      Madame Speaker knows what she’s doing.
      I must say…she’s 1001% that compelling.

      The only people saying otherwise are the republicans, led by Sen McConnell. He brought in the idea of the Senate receiving the impeachment by Thanksgiving & of course the media repeated this as fact.

      Nancy is amazing. The best part of her recent interview (above) was when she refused to speak to the innumerable quotes from the GOP that the interviewer kept bringing up. She shut it down despite the best efforts of the interviewer to keep quoting GOP talking points.

      They are now past the $1m – Ms Stefanik’s attacks on Adam Schiff sure backfired – not forgetting that the GOP love to give women the water carrier job. The only GOP woman on the committee & they gave her the attack dog role. Women who support the GOP never learn until it is too late.

    Now the latest Iowa poll has Mayor Pete ahead and the media is having a fit, but wasn’t it afew days ago the latest Iowa poll had Sen. Warren ahead and the same media were having a fit about that. Come on media take it easy. So Mayor Pete is ahead. Doesn’t mean he will stay ahead.

    Tweet from the remarkable Richard Engel:
    “Massive attacks underway against the kurds in northern syria. No ceasefire. Total nonsenses there is. US military officials tell me they are ashamed, “sickened.” It’s cold now outside. What about the families, and kids, out of their homes? ”
    Sarah Jones: “Trump touts his withdrawal as a success to bring our troops home, but they are not coming home. …Instead of making our military great again, Trump is crashing morale with his foreign policy that elevates dictators while spitting on freedom and justice. Donald Trump has decimated the brand of the United States.”

    On Trump pardoning accused war criminals:
    “The military requires its members to operate in accordance with the laws of war for good reason. Disregarding the laws of war – which Mr. Trump has done by intervening in these cases – jeopardizes mission accomplishment and the safety of service members; excessive civilian casualties, for example, can stimulate further violence, turn local populations against American forces, and discourage allies from collaborating with the United States. Mr, Trump should realize that the laws of war actually serve to benefit our armed forces.” (NYT, Haas)
    –What military discipline, integrity of the Uniform Code of Military Justice system, protection of troops on the battlefield, respect for veterans? What C.I.C.? What rule of law?
    –Remove putin’s bootlicker.

    “Tuesday morning
    Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, the National Security Council’s top Ukraine expert, who was among those listening to the July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and subsequently raised concerns with NSC lawyers.
    Jennifer Williams, an aide to Mike Pence whom Trump attacked by tweet over the weekend as a “Never Trumper.”
    Tuesday afternoon
    Kurt Volker, the former United States special envoy to Ukraine whose texts with Rudy Giuliani helped send the impeachment inquiry into overdrive.
    Tim Morrison, an NSC Europe and Russia expert who worried that news of the July 25 call would leak, though he said he didn’t think anything on it was illegal.
    Wednesday morning
    Gordon Sondland, one of the leaders in pressing Trump’s extortion demands.
    Wednesday afternoon
    Laura Cooper, deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russian, Ukrainian, and Eurasian affairs.
    David Hale, undersecretary of state for political affairs.
    Thursday
    Fiona Hill, former NSC senior director for Europe and Russia, who, like Vindman, raised concerns about Trump’s Ukraine dealings with the NSC counsel, only to watch a cover-up put in place.
    Key unknowns remain exactly what stunts Republicans will get up to to disrupt the proceedings and give Fox News alternative headlines to the damning information being revealed, and whether Trump will suddenly decide he needs the second part of his completely routine physical.”
