      Nena, the rapidity with which Trump has been able to toss his ignorance and irascibility around with little deterrence ….. leaves me speechless day after day. If anyone had told me after the election that he could change the tone so quickly with little real push-back I would have yelled “You lie!” smh, day after day

        I hear you, VC.
        Unfortunately in Sept 2015, I told two of my Family members, Well I reminded them…… what our late Dad said to Us in 1973 or 1974. This was during the Nixon mess. My Fathers said that US could be easily fooled into accepting a Coup, Dictator or an Authoritarian Regime…..The reason, for structurally, the Constitution as designed, was unable to stop or prevent such drastic system of Govt. My Dad died in 1975. His words rung true to me since Sept 2015. That was the month I started to see how weak the US System of Govt could easily be manipulated.

          Good evening, Nena. It’s frightening to watch the unraveling.
          Sometimes I tell myself the *one* ‘good’ thing about what the Orange Idiot is doing is that he is making it clear the U.S. A needs to legalize some of the expectations (like tax history on the table) that were previously left to the ‘integrity’ of the candidates.

    Meeting on Syria in the Situation Room with his national security team. 2013.

      GE JER.

      From the article:
      “On January 21, amid reports that Donald Trump redecorated the Oval Office with buttery gold drapes, Souza shared an image of the office as Obama had decorated it. ‘I like these drapes better than the new ones,’ Souza wrote. ‘Don’t you think?’

      ‘I like the president more than the current one, too,’ one commenter replied.

      Souza’s Instagram feed has continued this way—with occasional breaks for other subject matter. (‘I realize people want their daily Obama fix,’ he said in a caption to a non-Obama photo in January.)”

      snip /

      “Now that Souza’s job in the White House is over, however, he seems to be relishing his ability to extract political context from his rich trove of Obama images. And those who miss their old president appear to be charmed by Souza’s newfound political streak. For others, remembering the former president now that Trump has replaced him may be too much to bear.

      One commenter, in response to one of Souza’s recent images of Obama on Instagram, seemed frantic:’“Please! OMG, PLEASE COME BACK!’”

    Susan Rice didn’t ask the FBI for immunity from prosecution. Mike Flynn did. Obama’s campaign was not under FBI investigation. Trump’s is.

      Pretty much a given that CA34 will elect a Dem to replace a Dem, given the demographics of that CD (which includes Chinatown, and Little Bangladesh, Little Tokyo, and Koreatown — not representative of US or of California):

      From Wikipedia:
      9.2% White
      4.4% Black
      19.4% Asian
      65.4% Hispanic
      1.5[1]% other

          Ahhh, thank you for the clarification, Sheila.

          As an aside, I think PBO’s CA college campus is in this district. I wandered the grounds of that university awhile ago (long before I’d heard of Barack Obama, think he may have been getting started in his political career at the time) — it’s a beautiful place, nestled between eucalyptus and other trees. 🙂

        I noticed that happened to you this morning, and was shocked and upset. 😦

        Now I’m even angrier to see the reason why — the Berniebots, who practically handed the Nov election to the WORSE PERSON ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH (except for cannibals, maybe).

        Haven’t a chance to catch up on @LouiseMensch’s Twitter timeline, but from what I gathered here last night, Bernie’s in on the #KremlinGate #SiberianCandidate scheme.

        Maybe Bannon got bored sitting in on meetings, none with topics his fat dense brain could understand. Plus, they’re supposed to serve a noble purpose, and he’s Bannon.

        Or his mob boss told him he’d better get out of the spotlight, because some dirty deeds will soon be exposed.

        Anyway, glad he’s off the NSC and hope the other political stragglers go with him.

    Hello to all my TOD family. I have been off the grid preparing for and attending our trial representing a woman who was discriminated against and demoted by her employer (a group of good ole’ southern men) for the last month or so. Long days and weekends. But WE WON on a unanimous verdict on Friday! We have a mini trial to do in the next few weeks for damages. I have tried to lurk the last few weeks but I have missed so much. Thank you all for working so hard for our Dems and the only President we have, Barack Obama!

    • April 5, 2017 at 1:00 pm

      Hey, Jackie, nice to see you! Congratulations on your victory! You have always struck me as a super hard worker all these years. I hope you love what you do.

      It’s probably good that you’ve taken a break from the news. It’s been pretty ugly but I do believe there is light at the end of the tunnel.
      HOPE.
