    Embraced by GOP…destroys Constitutional Government:
    1) “to negate separation-of-powers supervision by preventing Congress from obtaining relevant evidence of executive misconduct.”
    2) “to use the powers of office to pressure foreign governments to intervene in American elections to serve his personal purposes.”
    2) “to use federal agencies to serve his personal purposes.”
    3) “to compel the Department of Justice to protect his friends while investigating and prosecuting his enemies.”
    4) “to use congressional appropriations for his own purposes, not those of Congress.”
    5) “he cannot be impeached because removal from office would…overturn a presidential election.”
    “Those principles are not only unfounded and antithetical to constitutional government,
    but they are also lethal to any party that does not control the presidency.
    That undeniable consequence of their actions suggests that the Republican party has, like Richard III, bet its future on a cast of the dice and is prepared to gamble that in 2020 it can maintain control of the presidency and then make its control permanent.”

        Does Weinstein ditch his walker now that the verdict is in, or does he keep it going for a little while longer?

        • 24 jacquelineoboomer
          February 24, 2020 at 7:39 pm

          I saw video which was apparently from after the verdict where the guards were walking him out of the courthouse to their vehicle. He was walking upright, not using a walker; they had him by the arms but he wasn’t bent over.

          Very similar to how Manafort was wheeled in to court, but some time not long after sentencing was shown walking upright with his guards.

          How low can they go. When you think you have your answer, just accept the fact it’s lower than that.

    Nevada GOP activist reveals how he temporarily switched parties and ‘caucused for Bernie’ to help Trump win: ‘It would be a dream election’.
    ——

    I have anxiety fever since the NH results. Nevada’s simply added to it. Perhaps if there was a FREE TV channel for older men, particular white male septuagenarians, to spend their time, the democratic candidate field would have been clearer. No serial socialist, no convert billionaire. Just real democrats with democratic ideas, be they a little extreme at times. I’d take that.

    No. Life cannot be just simple. We have Bernie and his cohort and only November 2020 will tell us where we are heading.

    China announces total ban on eating “wild animals”, effective immediately. Perhaps this outbreak will make a change.

    Good grief! Eating wild animals? What ever happened to chicken, fish and beef?

    The Republican Party is increasingly a nationalist party, and the Democratic Party is increasingly a socialist party—minor factions that have captured our politics. Most people just want personal and economic freedom, equality before the law, and a government that budgets wisely.

      I’m crushed. But I applaud the parents, too. God bless them for loving him so well, and I’m so sorry he fell into the wrong patterns in his young life. I wish no other parents have to go through what they did, but sometimes life hurts. Not sure I could have been as brave to move forward as they seem. I believe he’ll be looking out for them, now, until they meet again.

      • February 25, 2020 at 10:39 am

        JO’B, his parents not only loved him well, they love their fellow man enough to issue this cautionary word. May folks not on the right track heed it; may the loved ones of those that don’t be comforted by this example.

        • 76 jacquelineoboomer

          Beautifully put. Their strength in passing on the caution was equally beautiful. I can’t imagine what they’ve gone through.
