    Good morning all. Out sick with another bad cold; that’s two just this year, well technically one was just before Christmas, but it feels like the same year. It’s day 4 now, so expecting to be all better by Friday.

    Rep Ilhan Omar tweets back to president divide and rule:
    “You have trafficked in hate your whole life—against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more. I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you?”

      Yeh another GOP/Putin wily trickster gaming the truth. Or does she claim to be too dumb to understand?
      -Fakes News conflating ‘Socialism’ (overthrowing capitalism and moving towards communism) with ‘Social Democrat.’
      -Social democracy has been highly successful in Canada and across the EU for generations.
      One definition: “Social democracy is a political, social, and economic ideology that supports economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a liberal democratic polity and capitalist economy.”

      “Martin says he’s the only full service, licensed fan shop between Castle Rock and the New Mexico border. Despite having all 32 NFL team’s apparel in his store, he doesn’t have any current players’ jerseys–because of his decision to drop all Nike apparel.”

      So that means this guy had the area between Castle Rock and the New Mexico border on lockdown, and he was basically printing money. But his stupidity has finally driven him out of business.

    Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. has died at 96. He was an eight-time presidential candidate known for his extremist claims.

    Often described as an extremist and fringe figure, Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. cut a shadowy and alarming path through American politics for a half-century. He built a political organization often likened to a cult and repeatedly ran for president, once while in prison for mail fraud. In recent decades, he operated from a heavily guarded compound near Leesburg, Va.

    LaRouche drew headlines for his outrageous claims and built a following based on conspiracy theories, economic doom, anti-Semitism, homophobia and racism.
    ——–

    LaRouche drew headlines for his outrageous claims….. so forth and so on. The very attributes of a member of today’s GOP.

    No the Republicans do not have clean hands, And they have no right ( Trump, Pence, or any Republican ) to try to tell anyone anything when it comes to racism. I remember the silence from the Republicans during the Obama eight years when it comes to racism.

      He claims not to see color but we all see color. There is nothing wrong with seeing color. There’s something wrong with discriminating based on color. Perhaps Schultz needs to learn a few things before he runs for President of a very racially diverse country.

    Trump DHS Guts Task Forces Protecting Elections From Foreign Meddling:
    “Two teams of federal officials assembled to fight foreign election interference are being dramatically downsized… And now, those sources say they fear the department won’t prepare adequately for election threats in 2020.
    “The clear assessment from the intelligence community is that 2020 is going to be the perfect storm,” said a DHS official familiar with the teams. “We know Russia is going to be engaged. Other state actors have seen the success of Russia and realize the value of disinformation operations. So it’s very curious why the task forces were demoted in the bureaucracy and the leadership has not committed resources to prepare for the 2020 election.”” More: https://www.thedailybeast.com/trumps-dhs-guts-task-forces-protecting-elections-from-foreign-meddling?ref=home

    Too bad we couldn’t have hand picked the Republican we wanted to go – maybe because there would have been too many choices.

    Too often in the past few months, my comments are not showing up here. Although I get an “oops, you’ve already posted that” duplicate response, the comment is nowhere to be found. Akismet is something odd and weird. IMO.

    Apropos looking forward to, minimum once a day I am looking forward to visit TOD – thanks all of You!!

    In Trevor Noah’s Jan 30 interview with shady Chris Christie (longtime Trump friend who is never asked about the gross birther issue):
    Christie said that Trump had been thinking about running for president for 20 years. Can remember a journalist saying Dicktraitor had
    “Trump-for-president’ paraphernalia ideas on his desk years ago. Certainly ties in with translated text I saw (which disappeared) saying the Kremlin was looking to get him into office in mid-1980s. Question: If Trump knew he was going to run all that time ago, why didn’t he clean up decades of illegal mob activity in preparation?

    On Lawrence last night: The “Effects of Shutdown on Federal Workers and Contractors:
    62%….Depleted all of most emergency savings.
    47%… Fell behind on bills.
    27%….Missed mortgage payments.
    26%….Borrward from retirement savings.
    25%….Used a food bank.
    GOP’s exploitative capitalism where a teeny few do well (the Deficit now groans at 22 Trillion due to a tax handout they probably didn’t ask for) must go. Starving the Treasury is mere sport for KOCH McConnellites. Remember Norquist: “Our goal is to shrink government to the size where we can drown it in a bathtub.”

      There’s also a statistic going around – not connected specifically with the shutdown – that a huge percentage of Americans are several months behind on their car payments.

    And are we going to let this illegitimate regime mess with an incredible Texas BUTTERFLY SANCTUARY?
    With 50% of plant and animal species facing local extinction by the turn of the century due to global warming, why kill this beautiful sanctuary? How the hell is it going ahead with trees reportedly already cut down – needed for habitat.
    Can GOP do something besides lie, destroy, maim and KILL?
    –PLEASE STOP this.

    Wonder what folks think about this article

    But the billionaires waited too long. California set sail and Texas is probably next. The people want someone to pay for the Great Recession. They want someone to pay for our hollowed out small towns and failing farms. They want someone to pay for the fact that we have a Russian agent in the White House and the Republicans won’t do a damn thing about it. They’re losing interest in the old arguments about why they can’t have nice things.
