      … Russia’s intelligence operatives are among the world’s best. I believe they made a keen study of the American political scene and realized that, during the Obama years, the conservative movement had become ripe for manipulation. Long gone was its principled opposition to the “evil empire.” What was left was an intellectually and morally desiccated carcass populated by con artists, opportunists, entertainers and grifters operating massively profitable book publishers, radio empires, websites, and a TV network whose stock-in-trade are not ideas but resentments.

    Extreme right conspiracy now very visible:
    We’ve been undergoing a stealth prescription for totalitarian capitalism.

    IMO essentially critical reading including KOCH strategy explained. Hidden programs for suppressing democracy on behalf of the very rich.

      “Constitutional revolution” = creating irrevocable restraints to limit democratic choice.
      Complete freedom for billionaires means poverty, insecurity, pollution and collapsing public services for everyone else. Any clash between “freedom” (allowing the rich to do as they wish) and democracy should be resolved in favor of freedom. Even godawful
      Friedman and Greenspan seen as “sellouts” because they sought to improve the efficiency of government RATHER THAN
      DESTROY IT ALTOGETHER.

    –Program of privatization, austerity, monetary restraint, deregulation and the destruction of trade unions: a package that helped trigger economic collapse in 1982.
    –Destruction of State Architecture through austerity, budgeting rules, dismantling of public services, tuition fees and control of schools.

    • July 19, 2017 at 3:32 pm

      Stealth as crucial: “conspiratorial secrecy is at all times essential. (KOCHS sound familiar?)
      Mass colonisation of Trump’s administration by members of that network and lethally effective campaigns against everything from
      public health to action on climate change.

    Mentioned this earlier today…

    Walter Shaub, the recently-departed director of the Office of Government Ethics, offered a startling revelation on CNN this morning. He recounted that a few months into President Trump’s term, the president’s lawyer asked Shaub if Trump could file his federal financial disclosure forms without signing them. The signature certifies that the list of financial holdings, assets and liabilities disclosed in the form is “true, complete and correct to the best of my knowledge,” and Trump’s lawyer apparently sought to find out whether Trump could avoid certifying that.

    Later today, CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) will release estimates of the effects of the Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act of 2017, which was just made public on the website of the Senate Budget Committee. The estimate of the overall budgetary effects will be published on CBO’s website.

    “Graham, Durbin revive bill to help ‘Dreamers'”

    Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) plan on Thursday to introduce a new version of a bill granting legal status and a path to citizenship to undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children.

    The proposal comes as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provides temporary relief from deportation to those immigrants, who are known as “Dreamers,” faces a legal challenge from Texas and nine other states.

    The Trump administration has not said whether it will defend DACA in court.

    …the administration is unlikely to support the new bill.

    “The administration has opposed the Dream Act and we are likely to be consistent in that.”

      Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been diagnosed with brain cancer, the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said Wednesday.

      The tumor was discovered after the senior Arizona senator underwent a minor procedure last week to remove a blood clot from above his left eye.

      “Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot,” the hospital said in a statement.

      “The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”

      So one day Dolos Trumpus had to answer for his disgusting iniquities. As requested the court, witnesses, defenders, judges and legal counsels were all 7 or 8 years old. Finally he was at home! And he told the truth that he just wanted to play hop-scotch and kick-the-can as in the old days in his short trews. But these Big people just didn’t get him. All except for his teentsy friend Putting. Ah now Putting.

    reading the initial reports about McCain’s surgery, one could predict that this evening’s prognosis was highly probable.

    I indicated that I could not avoid thinking about how this is parallel to Senator Ted Kennedy and how his sickness impacted the Obamacare debate

    Mueller isn’t the only one 45 needs to be worried about. He and his family and his business are being investigated from a number of legal entities.

  72. July 19, 2017 at 9:14 pm

    If Trump is able to fire Mueller, what’s the likelihood that Congress will step in and appoint him as an independent counsel???
