    Good morning wonderful TOD family. Nerdy Wonka, thank you thank you thank you. We all appreciate all you are doing to keep this blog going. You keep us informed in the trying times. And you give us HOPE!

    Here in Montana we are having our fall. Today is suppose to be up to 50 degrees. In October we had freezing weather. It’s crazy. I do like the warmer weather right now, but I do worry about the total affects.

    Looking forward to this week of testimony.

    Phenomenal…FLOTUS continues to astound and inspire. Our First Couple bring light and remind us about caring and tenderness for others. Thank heavens.

    Another shooting at a Walmart in Duncan, OK.

    “What struck me most about Ambassador William Taylor’s testimony
    was his poignant description of the violence being visited upon Ukrainian soldiers at the hands of Russian forces in the Donbass region of Ukraine. U.S. security assistance “allows the Ukrainian military to deter further incursions by the Russians against their own, against Ukrainian territory,” Taylor explained. “If that further incursion, further aggression were to take place, more Ukrainians would die.” Just a week ago, when he toured the region, one Ukrainian soldier had been killed and four were wounded.
    Until Taylor’s testimony, I hadn’t heard a more powerful statement of the human cost of President Donald Trump’s decision to withhold the military aid to Ukraine that had been authorized by Congress. And that made me think of President Andrew Johnson. Johnson and Trump’s impeachment cases are more similar than they might at first appear. By asking the president of Ukraine for a favor—to investigate Joe Biden and his son—and by allegedly withholding military aid to get that favor, Trump was trying to interfere with an upcoming election: his own. According to testimony this week, Trump appears to have cared more about an investigation of the Bidens and his own political future than about the welfare of Ukrainians—and, by extension, about U.S. national security.”

    “Trump’s RNC Is Running A Pay For Play Scheme On His Own Nominees.”
    “The RNC appears to have strong-armed Trump supporting billionaire “Papa Doug” to donate half a million dollars MORE during his confirmation hearings to be the ambassador to the Bahamas….
    Papa Doug had already donated $1 million to Trump’s inauguration.”

    And then there’s his personal attorney, Barr.
    “It turns out, of course, that Barr is more radical than anyone could have imagined.
    I’ve written about his adherence to the “unitary executive” theory quite a bit. But last Friday night he gave a speech to the Federalist Society that makes clear his pet constitutional theory is only a part of the problem.
    This is not just about presidential power. It is about a deep loathing for his political opposition on such a visceral level that it’s frightening to think about such a man having so much power and being answerable only to the inept bully in the White House. It was frankly authoritarian.” (Heather Digby Parton)

    SCOTUS…had to know this was coming their way…will be interesting to see if they allow a sitting President to ring this bell,,,once its rung…it cannot be unrung

      Trump’s party is a lawless, rogue mafia organization emulating Putin’s mafia state. Roberts will go down in history – for what? Is he going to help stop a sociopathic killer in his tracks?

      Good Afternoon, TODville Community.
      Thanks for a new post, NW.
      09Dec2000 was the stoppage of the FL Count when Kathellen Harris & @JebBush were the masterminds of suppressing Voters of POC. The dastard that became known as #BushVGore was ruled in #GWBush’s favor engineered by Scalia & Rehnquist. This bastardization of the #SCOTUS=🇺🇸Failure.

      If the expansion was ever put to a vote in TN, it would win in another red state. Sadly, that will never happen, Neither the vote nor the expansion since we are totally ruled by ignorant and crazy and greedy and hate-filled GOPers. Get this, we have almost $8 million in federal funds that is mostly to be used for pooor families, help pay child care for single moms and low income families, some of it for TennCare which is our state run Medicaid, as well as many other things. If most of it isn’t spent by THE END OF THIS YEAR, it goes back to federal treasury. And get this, We citizens didn’t know about this stock piled fund until a month ago, if that long. Maybe just three weeks! There, I’ve just given you a perfect example of the mess we are dew,I go with in red TN! 🤬🥺🥵

        Hey if you stop terrifying the healthcare corporates with Medicare For All:
        Maybe after X more years – GOP will allow your state finally to have Medicaid expansion.
        (yeh sure)

      He reminds me of a closeted white nationalist. Just like he ran for mayor the first time in the closet, he’s running for the highest office in the land in the political closet. Everyone should watch Maddow’s first interview with him. This is why he never got on my short list.

    Andy Borowitz passed around a plug for his wife’s blog – The Grandparent Effect – and a story (from 2015) about #44, so I’m guessing Andy’s wishing he were still in the Oval Office, too!!!

      Ok.. my 2 cents on this video. This was in 2010 when Pete was running for State Treasurer…it was a meet the candidates forum. The video is not complete but what the video does have and was not edited out was this first part ““But there are many others that believe…the Tea Party is motivated by real concerns…” By editing out the beginning of his sentence the meaning and the context (which was he was a democrat running for office in a ruby red state) was changed.
      Chris Evans hates Pete and will twist his words around. I just want everyone to be aware how easily it is to turn on a candidate based on a misrepresentation of their words/intent and timeline.
      These same people that hate Pete call him a Log Cabin Republican.

    Nunes verbal police going on about what Trump’s crimes are CALLED. imo quid pro quo (includes bribery), extortion, corruption, high crimes and misdemeanors. Take your pick, and per the process as the evidence unfolds.
