      Thanks, Judith.
      How are things going in your neck of the woods, election work wise? We are blessed, where I am, to have wonderful representatives in DC, so many of us are working any way we can for campaigns in other areas of the state and the country to try to flip seats. No time to rest right now. Looking forward to Nov 7th when I hope I can breathe again.

    Why does anyone from MMS interview PP? Lesley Stahl on 60 minutes interviewing the loser now.
    At what point do journalists say enough of the lies.

    Amazing, how some Americans are fooled by this man … maybe he does deserve a medal of some kind. God knows the Deplorables seem like they have been grabbed by their you know what.

    Aw maybe Dicktraitor won’t get his pay-off now from the vicious violent hateful bin Salman regime…no Trump hotels?
    Riyadh official threatened to “”respond to any action with a bigger one”. (Hey look at them out-Cohn-ing Trump.)
    –Britain, France and Germany in a joint statement: “There needs to be a credible investigation to establish the truth about what happened.”
    –Yeh right. THERE’S AN AUDIOTAPE. GOP no excuses all systems go! There’s also this little known word for Riyadh: NO

      Trump instigated the threats and that ratcheted up the rhetoric. Now he thinks he is the great deal maker when he stops his own behavior and reverses course. Also he achieved nothing in terms of our security from the beginning of this process.

    For Republicans, Democracy Has Long Been An Impediment To Their Policies

    The Heritage Foundation’s Paul Weyrich said in 1980 that Republican leverage “goes up as the voting populace goes down.”

    The American public has become more aware in recent years that Republicans are wielding the tool of voter suppression to cement their minority rule in the U.S., but this notion that non-white Americans should be kept from the polls is not a new development.

    From The Washington Post:

    Republicans took to heart the words of Paul Weyrich, the conservative founder of the Heritage Foundation. In a 1980 speech, he opined: “I don’t want everybody to vote. . . . As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down.”

    VOTE THEM ALL OUT PEOPLE!

    Democrats MUST WIN BACK THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE and, of course, every other office in the land, including the Presidency.

    Someone noticed this during Peabrain’s 60 Minutes interview. It is NOT photoshopped!
    Y’all remember the Democratic presidents version of this was floating around when PBO was in office. He would never have been so tacky & narcissistic as to actually put that on the wall in the White House. SMH!

        The opposite is my son can now go on Nike’s website and look at their entire shoe collection in five minutes or less on his galaxy cellphone. He’ll never know the joy of actually holding a department store catalogue, the texture and brightness of the pages, the smell also.

    Good morning. Update on my house party. Success, if I do say so myself. 🙂 21 of Justin’s future constituents:) 🙂 were here. Good time of sharing. I know he got some good donations and we got three women who are going to address post cards and one man who is going to phone bank. My husband did great. I thanked him and thanked him. In fact, Justin, the candidate loves to hike, but has had no time since February to do that. They agreed that after this is over, the two of them are going to hike together. Also, Justin’s wife has on her bucket list to thru hike the AT so they “hit if off” quickly. All in all, my first experience was a success. #voteblue #flip14

    “Yale expert on fascist propaganda (Jason Stanley) explains how Trump has ripped a page directly from Mussolini”. (Raw Story)
    –Prof. Jason Stanley has recorded video for NYT showing how “Trump and other right-wing reactionaries around the world have stolen a page from the playbooks of the fascist dictators who ruled much of Europe in the early 20th century.” Fascists begin their propaganda operations by appealing to a mythic past in which peace and prosperity were widespread and where societies were more unified than they are today…create an overwhelming sense of nostalgia for a past that is racially pure, traditional and patriarchal.” “From Mussolini to Hitler to Erdogan, fascist
    leaders position themselves as father figures and strong men. As long as he — and yes it’s always a he — remains in power, everything is possible.” Fascists use scapegoating to explain why this mythical past has ended and “pitting groups against each other…Once you divide, it’s easier to control.” Next step…attack the truth…media or scientific consensus e.g. climate change. “This environment creates a Petri dish for conspiracy theories…No one can agree on what’s true anymore — and fascists love it when that happens.”

    Trump last night (so “they” say): “But I rely on them. It’s not in our country.”
    By this I think he means Mr. Khashoggi (though protected by the U.S. Constitution) was murdered in a country whose leaders are his personal family business partners and pro-fascist buddies. And since Trump has withdrawn the Homeland from the Human Rights Council he is not obliged to worry about the audiotaped incident. And that he might feign more interest if the vile murder had been done in the USA . (Maybe) Warning.

    Hi Everyone! Got a question. Thought I’d ask here before opening it up to the Twitterverse:
    Has anyone heard of or had any experience with a company called “Vote Goal Organizing”? I’m trying to determine if they’re a legit campaign services company or if something henky is going on.

    Google them and a bunch of pages links for campaign-related job openings on various job search sites. All of the job ads are blind – no link to company website, no contact info, just click to apply. I can’t find a direct website or Facebook page for the company.
    Red flag #1. I found that company was created in D.C., But it’s address is a virtual office location.
    Another of those sites where you look up corporate registrations appears to indicate the company has some other sites indicate “branches” in California, Kentucky and Pennsylvania that may be listed as “foreign corporation”. That set off red flags. No web presence for the branches.

    I’m thinking not legit. There’s more (long story), but just thought I ask if anyone here has run across these folks. So have ya?

    • 95 jacquelineoboomer
      October 15, 2018 at 6:31 pm

      Have no knowledge of this company, but I’m glad you’re looking further into it. As a short postscript to possible shenanigans’ being right behind the curtain, like this one, the other day I clicked on one of those seemingly-blue-wave websites where you could re-check your voter registration. Mine came up empty. So I quickly went to my state’s site and confirmed I’m still registered.

      Tricks abound.

      And today I filled out my mail-in ballot and will get it in the mail quickly.

      Treats for all (if you’re voting for Democrats, people)!

        Yep, my skeptic hat pretty much stays pinned to my head nowadays. Good thing you did trust that first site. Hope that doesn’t trip up a lot of people.

        Way to go on the mail-in.
        I’m going in for early voting tomorrow.

    • October 15, 2018 at 4:33 pm

      Yes i get why she got drawn into this one but gahh. Trump is a vile Racist ignoramus who doesn’t understand the fluidity of his own genes.
      FACT: Britons prior 7,000 to 9,000 years ago had dark skin not white. True. This was discovered just in the last year.
      (“England’s Cheddar Man Had Dark Skin”. https://news.nationalgeographic.com/…/ancient-face-cheddar-man-reconstructed-dna-s)
      And the following article concludes:
      “But the most important argument against this type of testing to establish tribal affiliations is that biology (and genetics) track just part of our tribal inheritance. These DNA tests treat ÒNative American biology as though all Indians were essentially the same. But in reality, our traditions make us who we are, not just our biology.” (www.ipcb.org/publications/briefing_papers/files/identity.html)

          You, unfortunately, posted the perfect tweet for the occasion. But I’d still rather be a Democrat, any day of the week! And as long as we all vote, we can hold the cynicism and bad faith of RWNJs in check – until they climb out of their playpens again – which, hopefully, won’t be for 20 years. Yes, I am a political optimist, which is getting harder and harder!!!! Ugh.

    Good Evening TODVille,

    I’ve been absent because I am dealing with my younger sister’s stage 4 rampant MBC cancer. She will cast an absentee ballot from the bed where she’s laid since September 2nd. Everyone I know will receive a text or an e-mail from me, reminding them of their patriotic duty to vote and VOTE BLUE.

    I hope everyone has recovered from the Kavanaugh charade. The single prayer is to get a sign from Heaven about the end of the GOP takeover of this nation. I can’t wait.

    Hey Dudette,

    I’ve been monitoring the early voting reports today in Georgia. Is Fulton county a big Dem County? Also, I think I read somewhere that Gwinnett county has been trending blue over the last couple of elections. Both of these counties had long lines for early voting today. Hoping that this is a good sign for Dems. I know there were some reports of electronic glitches earlier in the day but the places were packed with voters nonetheless.
