    I swear I’m going to get banned from the staff cafeteria at work. Every goddamn time when I go in there to eat lunch the t.v. is on fox news. And every goddamn time I switch the fucking channel I get these looks which I really don’t give a fuck about. I don’t walk around work being a bully or anything like that, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to watch a channel that cheers on an Administration that fucks over its citizens.

      My hero. Good for you! Why should you, or anyone else, be force fed lies? It’s not news, it’s propaganda. The sooner they figure that out, the better. You are helping to that end. Do they realize that people that watch FOX are more ignorant than everyone else?

        I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the people I work with aren’t millionaires or billionaires and don’t have a trust set up. We are just hard working people that try put food on the table, now I will admit that we are paid well. But still, if I’m doing well and my neighbor is facing foreclosure because they lost their job or they got sick and are facing financial ruin. Why would I sit and watch a channel that doesn’t have our best interest in mind? It floors me how people can be so goddamn gullible.

        When the truth is finally known – and it will be – we are going to learn what a thug and a lowly criminal Trump truly is. We saw it in his real estate dealings over the decades but now he’s screwed with the wrong people. Lots of blank checks and an extraordinary abuse of power. But because of the GOP’s race-baiting and misogyny, they will not likely pay any long-lasting blowback. People forget Nixon and W’s lies for war. But, I guess we’ll see…..

          Our institutions have survived a great many attacks and mishaps and in the end they have grown stronger. When Trump finally goes down, which I think is going to happen. Our institutions will grow that much stronger, Trump’s rein will only last for a season.

    Speaking of racist dumbasses.

    Parliament will get a vote on the final Brexit deal before the UK leaves the EU, minister David Davis has told MPs.

    He said the terms of the UK’s exit, including any transition deal and agreement on citizen rights, would have to become law via new legislation.

    And he said MPs would have the opportunity to reject or amend such legislation, saying “the agreement will only hold if Parliament approves it”.

    Labour welcomed what it said was a “significant climbdown”.

    The BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg said the announcement was significant because it represented a big concession to potential Tory rebels and Labour MPs at a highly important moment in the Brexit process.

    It comes as MPs prepare to debate key Brexit legislation later this week with the government facing possible defeat on aspects of the EU Withdrawal Bill, which will convert EU law into UK law.

    BREAKING NEWS from CNN

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he believes the allegations against Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore and that Moore should leave the race.

    “I believe the women, yes,” McConnell told reporters in Kentucky.

    McConnell, the Senate’s top Republican and a frequent target of Moore on the campaign trail, said, “I think he should step aside.”

      And that ladies and gentlemen, is a shiv. Quick, short and sweet, and well executed. Moore didn’t even see it coming, he was walking to lunch plotting his next move and McConnell did what he had to do.

      How much do you want to bet, McTurtle backs off of this before the day is over or tomorrow morning once the Twitler/Bannon crew goes after him. I wonder what Hannity will get his followers to say once he now has gone out on a limb for the GOPedophile.

      • 43 Don
        November 13, 2017 at 1:17 pm

        With McConnell anything and everything is on the table, he can turn around and praise Moore tomorrow but today he kneecapped Moore. To be truthful I hope Bannon stays in the spotlight, he is a Democrat’s wet dream in that they can make a commercial out of this guy drinking a cup of coffee.

    The Woman Standing Between The White House and the Mass Deportation of 450,000 People
    By Heather Timmons Quartz
    9:51 AM ET

    Elaine Duke had been retired for several years from a three-decade federal government career when she got a call last winter to come back to Washington D.C.

    After Donald Trump’s surprise presidential win, the campaign-turned-transition team was scrambling to find experts. Duke, 58, had years of experience at the departments of Defense and Homeland Security, and an added appeal—unlike many experienced senior Republicans in the sector, she wasn’t a vocal “Never Trumper.”

    Appointed by George W. Bush to “undersecretary of management” at the Department of Homeland Security in 2008, essentially giving her oversight of the DHS’s over 200,000 employees and $47 billion budget, Duke had stayed on under Barack Obama for two years before retiring. Former colleagues described her to Quartz as the rare apolitical presidential appointee, focused on the agency’s mission and employees because she, too, had been a “line worker” for years.

    Now Duke appears to be caught in a high-profile battle she never could have anticipated. As acting head of the DHS, Duke currently stands in the way of the Trump White House’s alleged push to deport nearly 450,000 people who live and work legally in the US, and hail from nations torn by natural disaster and war. They’re part of the US’s “safe haven” Temporary Protected Status, or TPS program, which was started in 1990.

    One former colleague described Duke to Quartz as “a very soft spoken, modest person who drives a Prius.” Another added, “For the life of me, I don’t know why she decided to leave her nice life” to go back into government. “Why would you do this unless you thought this was somewhere you could help?” he said.

    […]

    It’s unclear what Duke’s thought process was. Her former colleagues describe her as someone who is principled in her decision making, and who prizes legal, fair decisions.

    But after being pressured by White House officials on the TPS program, Duke has pledged to resign after a new head is named to fill the job she’s doing now, former colleagues told Quartz and the Washington Post. In the Friday night statement, Duke said ” I have no plans to go anywhere and reports to the contrary are untrue.”

    The possibility that Duke may leave, however, has alarmed Congressional Democrats, who now want to subject Nielsen to additional scrutiny.

    “Given the possibility, based on news reports, that the Department’s Senate-confirmed Deputy Secretary may soon resign, Committee members should be given a chance to revisit Ms. Nielsen’s management qualifications in a formal hearing setting,” five Senate Democrats wrote(paywall) in a letter to the heads of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

    He’s determined to unseat Ed Royce in California’s 39th congressional district (Fullerton, neighbor to Anaheim, which is where Disneyland is).
