    Good afternoon, everyone AND…
    ‘Thank YOU, NerdyW’ for keeping the door/gate open to us! Your commitment is greatly appreciated.

    Congrats, VC! I just finished watching this beautiful conversation while working on Christmas cards. No one is born a leader; it’s a skill that can be cultivated as you learn how to help everyone on your team succeed.

      Hel-lo, Judith. 🙂 I’ve just finished watching too (I watched while playing online solitaire). The truth is, I always enjoy our President’s down to earth approach coupled with his intelligence. This is a leader I will always love and respect, and one of whom I’ll always, always be tremendously proud! God bless the day he entered (inter)national politics! 😀

    Question #3 is bullshit, but it wouldn’t hurt to have them on record answering the other two.

      They won’t tell the truth about these questions anyway! They just bullshit and shuffle their feet. They suck the air out of the room and democracy out of the country. Fucking vote them all out when the time comes. They do not deserve to be part of a government they want to destroy!

    Good day TODville.

    What’s with Democratic mayors etc caught not adhering to the advice they are doling out to their constituents about staying home or not gathering in restaurants and so on.

    TX mayor told ppl to stay home while he was on vacation in Mexico, I believe his daughter’s wedding also caused a kerfuffle (sp?) Of some sort.
    Now, he has apologized and cites ‘a lapse in judgement’.
    Whatever happened to leadership by example?

    Have a good day everyone.

    Joy Reid:
    “The Presidential Pardon was originally intended to temper justice with mercy.
    It was not enshrined in our Constitution so that a dishonorable man could reward his criminal allies, friends and family for their criminal practices. However, that’s exactly what Donald Trump has done these past four years. He circumvented the proper legal protocols which seek to reward clemency to those who truly merit it. And has instead conveyed mercy to war criminals, liars, and political hacks who openly admitted to breaking the law…all these liars, criminals and cheat had one thing in common…it was unflinching support for Trump.”

    • December 3, 2020 at 2:18 pm

      Congressman Schiff,
      Chairman House Intelligence Committee, speaks to Reid:
      “We made similar referrals in the case of Roger Stone, in the case of Erik Prince, where people came before our committee and we had good reason to believe based on the testimony and evidence that we collected, that they had lied under oath. And that they should be considered for potential prosecution for perjury or making a false statement. So it may very well be referrals along those lines. But look I think that the president has probably broader fears than that about his children. There are any number of reported investigations, some state some federal, in which he may be concerned that they’re facing criminal liability. And he is obviously concerned about himself from the press reporting, that he would even go so far as to consider trying to pardon himself somehow. But this is the nature of those the president has surrounded himself with, including his family. And that it’s essentially a den-of-thieves environment. And the so I think president views this as his way of trying to protect those who have protected him.”

      Reid: “First of all you are a former prosecutor.
      We know that there have been clemencies previously issued…to send a message….that we shouldn’t
      be putting people in prison for life for selling marijuana…that can kind of a pardon. Have you ever heard of somebody given a pre-emptive pardon who was innocent of all crime…just somebody giving a blanket pardon…?
      Congressman Schiff:
      “No. I think there are very few cases where there’ve been prospective pardons.
      Such as Ford pardoning Nixon for whatever he may have done during the presidency. There was some idea of the potential criminal liability facing Richard Nixon. Here, it’s an effort not only to prospectively pardon people for things they have not yet been charged with and may never be charged with, but also it’s the president’s own family. It’s people that have been covering up for the president in addition to his own family. In the case of Roger Stone it’s someone who lied to cover up. Or Michael Flynn who lied to cover up. And so there is a self-interest at play as well. And I think that makes this quite unique. You know there were accusations when President Bush conveyed a pardon to Caspar Weinberger, that the special counsel there thought might have been an effort by then President Bush to cover up – but nothing of the scale and scope of what Donald Trump has already done. And is contemplating in the future.”

    • December 3, 2020 at 2:23 pm

      Reid: “And the ‘Cover-Up General’ is what they use to call William Barr
      because he advised H.W. Bush to pardon people, which interrupted those Iran Contra proceedings.
      Let’s say Donald Trump tried to pardon himself. How would that be refuted? Who would be the party that would object to that, and how would that objection play out and potentially wind up in the Supreme Court?”
      Congressman Schiff:
      “It would play out this way.
      Let’s say that the SDNY indicted Individual Number One – it was known to be the President of the United States – in a campaign fraud scheme that the Southern District has already charged Individual One
      co-ordinated and directed. The same one that Michael Cohen went to jail for. The lawyers for president Trump would argue that the case should be dismissed because the president pardoned himself. The prosecutors would obviously contest that. And if the president were convicted, there would be an appeal on that basis. Or there may be an effort to even thwart the prosecution. And it would make its way up through the courts and ultimately the Supreme Court would decide – I have to think they would decide you can’t pardon yourself. Along the lines of the … opinion from the early 1970’s. It would make you a judge in your own case, it would put you above the law. And more than that it would allow a President of the United States to effectively nullify whole other sections of the Constitution because he can simply pardon himself after encouraging other people to engage in illegality. And the Constitution as our justices have written,
      is not a suicide pact. To interpret it that way would make it into a suicide pact.”

    • December 3, 2020 at 2:24 pm

      Congressman Schiff:
      “There are good legitimate reasons for pardons. It doesn’t appear that any of those are motivating this president.”

    WaPo:
    “Tyson Foods managers had a ‘winner-take-all’ bet on how many workers would get covid-19, lawsuit alleges.”
    Maddow reporting:

    Bloomberg:
    “Tyson Foods Inc. Accused of Misleading Interpreters at Virus-Hit Plant”
    “Tyson is accused of giving incorrect information to interpreters during a Covid-19 outbreak that infected more than a third of workers at a pork plant in Waterloo, Iowa.
    Plant management directed interpreters to tell the sizable non-English-speaking workforce that “everything is fine” at an April meeting.”

    Corporate predation, macabre fun, and deadly gambling on how many workers would be infected.
    —Intepreters were instructed to mislead workers.
    —2800 employees eventually got COVID-19.
    —This hit up the community and Iowa is at all time high.
    Compensation, hello Tyson.

    Somehow everything the rethugs do by open corruption is ‘non-reversible” while what the dems achieve legally like ACA can be sued up and down the courts to void them.
