        Two ways to remove him – Recall Petition or Election. I think Election is our best choice. Sheriff’s patrol Watts and Boyle Heights (Black & Hispanic communities). What does that tell you?

    Trump Gamed The Numbers On His Washington, D.C. Hotel:
    Congressional Report

    “Rachel Maddow reports on the findings in a House Oversight Committee report on Donald Trump’s leasing of the Old Post Office building for his Trump International Hotel, showing a now familiar pattern of crookedness, potentially fraudulently hiding debts and losses, and a hard-to-explain favor to Trump from Deutsche Bank on his massive loan on the lease.”

    On the Jan. 6 attack, Team Trump appears to have something to hide

    “The subpoenas from the bipartisan panel investigating the Jan. 6 attack are evidence of an intensifying select committee investigation.”

    “According to the new book from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Steve Bannon was in communications with Donald Trump in the runup to the Jan. 6 attack, and he reportedly told the then-president, “[I]t’s time to kill the Biden presidency in the crib.”

    Once Central To Trump’s Big Lie, Arizona Conspiracy Theory Fizzles Into Incoherence

      Happy (if) the media is not ignoring the truckloads of indicators.
      GOP rabidly targeting voting rights…fraudits…attacking election officials…trump’s poll numbers haven’t changed. He is still telling the Big Lie and coddling violent insurrectionists. Fully intends to grab power by whatever means. Nothing magical about it and couldn’t’ be more in our faces. We cannot underestimate the gravity of the situation. Former president still calling for violence, raking in the cash from his victims, denying what happened on Jan 6 after inciting it. No wiggle room here, it is on Dems to act swiftly.

    Calls Grow For Independent DOJ Task Force To Investigate Trump

    “A collection of government watchdogs are calling on Attorney General Merrick Garland to launch an independent DOJ task force to investigate Trump.

    The non-partisan Hold Trump Accountable Campaign said in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA:
    “An expansive report by the Senate Judiciary Committee was released that detailed how former President Donald Trump, his associates and a lawyer within the Department of Justice attempted to overturn the results of the 2020 election. According to the results of the Committee’s report, Trump put pressure on the DOJ nine times to overturn the results of the 2020 election; his Chief of Staff, former Representative Mark Meadows, violated policy by applying pressure on DOJ lawyers to investigate false claims of election fraud; and Trump even considered replacing the acting attorney general with a lawyer from the Department of Justice who supported these fraudulent claims.

    Months before this report was released, Americans began calling on Attorney General Merrick Garland to create an independent task force to investigate the former president, members of his administration, or his campaign, business, or other associates, for any potential federal criminal or civil violations they may have committed. Over two hundred thousand people have joined the coalition call to Investigate Trump.
    The details of this report make clear that there is more than sufficient basis to investigate clear abuses of power and potential federal crimes committed by Donald Trump and his associates.”

    Over 200,000 Americans have signed a petition calling on the DOJ to launch an independent task force to investigate Trump.

    “Restoring the rule of law begins with restoring the Department of Justice and neither of those can be accomplished without holding Donald Trump and his accomplices accountable. To reestablish the bedrock principle that we are a nation of laws and that no one – not even the president – is above the law, it is essential that Attorney General Merrick Garland assign a task force to investigate and, where the evidence requires, prosecute, those who violated their oaths of office and violated our nation’s laws,” said Ben Clements, Board Chair and Senior Legal Advisor of Free Speech For People.
    The evidence only continues to pile on top of itself that Donald Trump and his associates committed multiple crimes over the previous four years. The Trump years are both an unprecedented threat to democracy, and a never before seen crisis.

    These are not normal times, so the DOJ must rise to the occasion and do its job of upholding the law.”

      Well, that last sentence is a huge understatement. I know Merrick Garland has only been in place for 6 or 7 months and he walked into a mess. The thing I find discouraging is that we have no idea with Garland and others at DOJ are hard at work putting things together to ‘nail’ Trump or if they are doing anything at all. Another fear I have is that there’s a good likelihood that there is number of Trump lackeys at DOJ. As an institution, the DOJ has always leaned fairly heavily to the right. At least, that is what I have always thought and also picked up from things I have read and things I have seen. Do y’all agree about that last part? It is also discouraging that there seems to be nothing much happening in the NY case or the GA case. It is frustrating and discouraging and a little scary.

    Finding Friendship:
    Jarvis Masters and Lee Klinger Lesser.

    On Juneteenth this year:
    “Jarvis (called) in to Lee’s cell phone from San Quentin State Prison, where he lives on Death Row, convicted
    of a crime he did not commit.”

    “Lee brought a copy of Jarvis’s first book, Finding Freedom… in 1997…“This book crashed into me,” she said.

    Jarvis’s address at San Quentin was in the back of the book…This was the beginning of many years of correspondence. There was a resonance between them. In his letters Jarvis shared what he was thinking about. In her letters Lee shared what her days were like.”

    “She was overwhelmed by her first visit, beginning with going through the gates and security clearance. Jarvis was then in the adjustment center of San Quentin, also known as solitary confinement.”

    “He was kept in isolation for longer than any prisoner in California—24 years. ”

    “Lee described Jarvis’s deep, open heart. “He’s one of the most free people I know…He has a positive influence on other prisoners and on the guards.”

    “He has a resilient spirit and wisdom, a lightness of being in this incredibly dark place,” Lee noted.
    “He is one of my beloved teachers and friends.”

    To learn more about Jarvis, Lee suggests reading his books, which he wrote using only the cartridge
    of a ballpoint pen as pens were not allowed in his cell, and visiting his website, http://www.freejarvis.org,
    where his writing and interviews are posted. On his website is an audio recording of a workshop that Lee and Jarvis led together on Sensory Awareness, Mindfulness, and Antiracism…”

    Good morning TOD family. This has been quite the last few weeks for us. One morning we both woke up to bad colds. So we decided to get tested. I tested negative but my husband has covid. I am over my cold, thank goodness but my husband is fighting this covid. Thank goodness we have had our shots. Don is doing ok, sleeping lots and coughing. We keep track of his oxygen level and so far it’s been 95%. I have been tested twice and am still negative. We are very thankful he can stay home ok and get better. Just wonder how long it will take. Hopefully I can stay negative through it all. Hope all are well and able to say away from this covid. As tnmtgirl knows it’s not just the flu. Stay well, get your shots and mask up!

    Today is World Day Against The Death Penalty

    More than two-thirds of the world has now abolished the death penalty in law or practice,
    according to Amnesty.

    • October 10, 2021 at 2:44 pm

      “The death penalty has no place in the 21st century.”

      “UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ remark reflects the global trend away from capital punishment. More and more Member States from all regions acknowledge that the death penalty undermines human dignity, and that its abolition, or at least a moratorium on its use, contributes to the enhancement and progressive development of human rights.

      Some 170 Members States of the United Nations with a variety of legal systems, traditions, cultures and religious backgrounds, have either abolished the death penalty or do not practice it. Yet, prisoners in a number of countries continue to face execution.”

    • October 10, 2021 at 2:45 pm

      “In the last few months of his tenure, Trump presided over the deaths of 13 prisoners.
      Here, Clive Stafford Smith takes a journey through the US’s commitment to capital punishment, telling the stories of some of the death row inmates he represented along the way.

      There has been a bloodbath in the United States in the past few months.

      From 2003 to 2020, there had been no federal executions, and only four going all the way back to my birth in 1959. In the 230 years since records began in 1790, we had averaged only marginally more than one federal execution a year.”


      • October 10, 2021 at 2:47 pm

        —the aforementioned ‘bloodbath’ took place in the last months of Trump’s office.

      • October 10, 2021 at 2:59 pm

        If would-be autocrat Trump were back in power we could expect him to pick up where he left off.
        He presided over hundreds of thousands of deaths that wouldn’t have happened had he cared about us.
        The deaths of children and infants he illegally separated on the border. Hiss actions with our allies the Kurds resulted in countless deaths (while freeing thousands of Taliban).
