      Good Evening Obama Grandmama.

      I am here, watching The Last Word. Avenati is my kind of lawyer, one who is smart, assertive, and relentless in his pursuits.

      This will be a quiet Mother’s Day for me. With one son in Singapore (who has already sent me cards and gifts) and my other son hoping through some tough personal times and my husband working that day. But celebration going on before and after.

      Hope you and all mothers here have a very special day!

      Another thing that popped into my head … even beyond trump and Cohen, think of all the other people and corporations (sorry, Romney, they’re not one and the same) throughout our country that are funneling money around, to influence our elected leaders, on a national or local level, every damn day.

    GM, TOD ohana.
    There is a lot going on with family matters that have kept me busy but wanted to let you know that I am still part of this family even though I have not been posting lately. Thanks to NW for keeping the doors open and to all of the faithful who add great info. and commentary. You help us to stay sane and even encouraged through all of the turmoil and tragedy that is now the new normal in our country. You help me to remain hopeful and energized as we work in our own ways to make our country better. Thanks for all that you do here and in your communities. “We are the ones that we habe been waiting for.”

        Good Morning CEB,

        Hope all is well with you and your family.

        In this village, we are taking it one day at a time, hope that one day all the insanity will end. We look back to a time when there was a real POTUS in the WH. How long ago that time was! Now it’s perpetual turmoil and chaos, day in day out. The only sane thing is that Mueller is pressing forward with his investigation and Avenatti is a permanent fixture on TV giving it straight to the Right.

        My hope is that the HS student body of the US will wake up to help us, the adults that have lost our ways, GET THEM OUT of Washington, of our state and local government.

        Stay well, dear compatriot.

    Rachel Maddow reports on a set of payments to Donald Trump confidant Michael Cohen exposed in an online posting by Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti, from corporations like AT&T, Russian oligarch-connected firms, and some as yet unexplained sources. Joyce Vance, former U.S. attorney joins to discuss the legal implications.

    Trump abdicates US role in Iran deal, nods to Bolton keen for war

    Rachel Maddow reports on the background of the Iran nuclear deal and outlines questions about its fate now that Donald Trump has broken from allies and removed the U.S. and given new strength to John Bolton’s eagerness for war as one of the limited number of alternatives.

    Joe Cirincione, nuclear security analyst, explains why Donald Trump breaking the deal the US made with allies on Iran’s nuclear program is “the most devastating and destructive act of Trump’s presidency.”

    What is the purpose of confirmation hearings? (watching Gina Haspel on TV now) … Govt Of Putin – will confirm her as the new Director anyway.

    Just read on a different site … how McConnell is bypassing rules in confirming younger conservative judges. McConnell is definitely the devil in disguise.

                Me too Meta, I have to turn it all off and tune out for days so I don’t become even more discouraged than I already am.

                I have become so pessimistic since that thug took over the WH. I have no faith that Mueller will find anything on Trump regarding collusion, I believe he will only write a report on the obstruction and the Repubs will do NOTHING. So that leaves my only hope on the Adult Movie Star and her Attorney who is either the most brilliant strategist ever or the biggest shyster to ever grace our presence. I’m putting all my hopes on the former.

                And thank you for the tweet. It was very helpful.

                  I say to those critics of Avenatti always-on TV, we the people put up with you and the media ALWAYS PUTTING TRUMP ON TV FROM FIRST TIME HE SAID WAS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. Deal with it, my hope is Avenatii wins just like Trump did, I am cheering him on. He is going to get done what Congress should be doing, holding Trump’s nose to the fire.

        You are most welcome. In Jan 2017, I signed up for her weekly newsletter, “What to do this week”, and she not only provides concrete actions to take each week to save our democracy but she also shares tips like this to keep our sanity. I think this set of tweets was really on the mark.

    TRUMP ROLLING BACK OBAMA EFFORTS ON RACIAL BIAS

    President Barack Obama tried to expand the way racial discrimination is measured and addressed, holding corporations and governments accountable for even unintended bias in a bid to reverse persistent racial inequality. Now the Trump administration is rolling those efforts back.

    The House on Tuesday passed a bill repealing a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau policy targeting discrimination in auto lending. …
