      White women be mad! One of them called MO a bully and it is featured on the front page of some rag in Miami. Of course, almost every headline that I saw framed MO’s comment in the wrong way as they usually do. MO has long given out of fucks to give and she is unleashed in the public and as the interviewer noted, “not one to be trifled with.” Remember when that woman tried to clown MO at a campaign event in 2011 0r 2012 and she was NOT having it? Becky complained to the NYT and as usual they gave her too much time and ink. Any woman who voted for this serial cheater and sexual predator, any woman like Betsy Voss, is saying that she and every other woman and girl does not have value, does not have the right to her own body, does not have the right to speak out or to be her own person.

        Sorry CEB – trying to find the rag you speak of through relatives, nothing so far. When I see those things in the supermarket checkout I often turn them to face the other way. All trashy faux. Betting MO wouldn’t give it any quarter. Relative just said all the reports she’s finding are really positive… she will look again.

        Michelle Obama spoke the truth, because these same women who had no problem with the things said about grabbing women’s pussies, if a black man had said that same thing, those women would have been so offended and upset by that. They would have never voted for that black man.

      As a proud White Supremacist, I don’t think Trump will care about anything the CBC says. They need to push for his impeachment and set the stage for his exit once Mueller is done with his investigation.

    GE TODville.

    Seems like every. single. day. when I try to catch up on the day’s events, I end up being absolutely GOBSMACKED on the lawlessness of the goddam Administration.

    The greed and corruption is bad enough, the white supremacy is unspeakable, and now the federal government is gearing up to take reservation lands from our First Citizens.

    We have become a totalitarian police state ruled by greedy oligarchs whose aim is for everyone who isn’t a plutocrat should either die or have their purchasing power reduced.

    This is the test case:.

      “[We] trap out the beaver, subtract the Mandan, infect the Blackfeet and the Hidatsa and the Assiniboin, overdose the Arikara; call the land a desert and hurry across it to get to California and Oregon; suck up the buffalo…kill off
      the nations of elk and wolves and cranes and prairie chickens and prairie dogs; dig up the gold and rebury it in vaults somewhere else…
      kill Crazy Horse, kill Sitting Bull; harvest wave after wave of immigrants’ dreams and send the wised-up dreamers on their way; plow the topsoil until it blows into the ocean; ship out the wheat; ship out the cattle; dig up the earth itself and burn it in power plants and send the power down the line…dry up the rivers and springs, deep drill for irrigation water as the aquifer retreats…”(Frazier, L(1989).

    Good Evening TODVille.

    Hope everyone is OK. I am enjoying Lawrence tonight (almost every night).

    There are two trends on the Dotard’s administration:

    1) everybody either spoke to a Russian, met with a Russian, or e-mailed a Russian.
    2) everyone flew a private plane or used a military plane for random travel including private affairs.

    After spending most of the month on yet another failed bid to repeal the Affordable Care Act and block-grant Medicaid, Congress is set to leave town without reauthorizing the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) or payments for hospitals that serve the uninsured – and without passing a bill to stabilize Obamacare’s individual market, leaving it vulnerable to President Trump’s whims.

    Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), who sits on one of the key committees in charge of health care, confirmed to TPM that Congress will likely allow CHIP to lapse by Saturday’s deadline, putting the health insurance of millions of children in jeopardy.

    “I’m confident the money will come but obviously it’s not going to come on time,” she said wearily.

    IS.WATER.WET?

    Is Neil Gorsuch Corrupt?
    The Supreme Court Justice gave a speech for an organization associated with the plaintiffs in an upcoming case.

    by John Stoehr
    September 29, 2017

    On Thursday, the most junior justice on the Supreme Court gave a speech at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., for an organization with the same benefactor as the group bringing a case that may end up knee-capping public-sector unions.

    ……………………….

    Others have noted that Gorsuch, in agreeing to speak at the Trump International Hotel, appeared to approve tacitly of the president’s blatant disregard for ethical and legal boundaries. The president, in being the owner of the hotel, is literally the renter and rentee. At the moment, I can’t think of a better definition of corruption.

    Less attention is paid to Gorsuch’s apparent corruption. His speech follows another in Kentucky last week before which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, in the words of the Lexington Herald-Leader‘s headline writer, “shows off prized accomplishment.”

    It’s enough to wonder if Gorsuch too has little serious regard for appearing to comport himself to certain boundaries. The Supreme Court is supposed to hold itself above the partisan fray as an independent check on the powers of Congress and the president.

    Yet Gorsuch, by appearing in public with McConnell and with associates of plaintiffs in an upcoming case, seems untroubled by his troubling breach of protocol. Indeed, he seems comfortable signaling to his friend and allies that they need not worry, not worry at all.

    Quick Takes: Never Send Out a Millionaire to Explain Tax Cuts
    A roundup of news that caught my eye today.

    by Nancy LeTourneau
    September 28, 2017

    Donald Trump hired a lot of millionaires to work in the White House – especially in positions where their task is to work on the economy and finance. But it is always a mistake to send out a millionaire to explain how your tax plans will help the middle class. Exhibit A: millionaire Gary Cohn.

      He’s trying to kill non-WASPs (not limited to people of color, but also targeting Jewish people as targets for revenge/violence), he’s trying to kill WASPs by disfiguring and polluting our landscape and air, he’s gonna surveil ANY American citizen who contacts naturalized citizens, and he’s ramping up the police state to imprison the survivors….

    unintended consequences to stupidity and bigotry.

    Tens of thousands more UK citizens applied for citizenship in other EU countries in the 12 months after the Brexit vote than in the previous year, according to data obtained by the BBC.

    Ireland received by far the most applications for dual nationality.

    But for all the countries that had data covering July 2016 to June 2017, applications have more than doubled.

    In countries which had data only for calendar years, there was a sharp rise from 2015 to 2016 as well.

    Among well-known UK citizens to apply for citizenship elsewhere in Europe is the Oscar-winning actor Colin Firth – it was confirmed last week that his application for Italian citizenship had been successful.

    Yes, even Mr Darcy is feeling flustered.

    Tom Price’s Truly Outrageous Behavior
    by Nancy LeTourneau
    September 29, 2017

    November 1st begins the open enrollment period and, absent a major life event, it marks the only time during the year that individuals can sign up for coverage on the exchanges. Here is what Price has done so far to make that more difficult:

    Shortened the open enrollment period by 1 1/2 months
    Eliminated 90 percent of funding for advertising the open enrollment period and cut funding for navigators (who assist people with enrollment) by 40 percent
    Announced a plan to shut down the federal exchange for maintenance 12 hours every Sunday through the open enrollment period.

    On this latest one about shutting down the exchange for maintenance, one anonymous official suggested that it was no different than what happened in previous years during the Obama administration. Surprise, surprise…that is a lie.

    A federal report to Congress said healthcare.gov was online 99.9 percent of the time in the 2015 and 2016 open enrollment seasons.

    The Trump administration plan will have the site operating 93 percent of the time — over an enrollment period that is half as long as it used to be. In effect, instead of a 90-day enrollment season, the Trump administration has cut it to 45. The maintenance shutdowns cut it to an equivalent of 42 days.

    Mike Pence sent his lawyer to meet with Robert Mueller over the Russia investigation

    Bryan Logan

    Vice President Mike Pence sent the lawyer representing him in the federal probe of Russia’s US-election meddling to meet with special counsel Robert Mueller this summer, Politico reported on Thursday.

    Pence’s attorney, Richard Cullen, signed on to represent the vice president in June, about a month after Mueller’s investigation got underway. A source cited by Politico said Pence wanted Cullen to meet with Mueller to assure the special counsel that Pence was ready to cooperate with the ongoing investigation.
