    Thank you Nerdy Wonka here is tbmtngirls’s response.

    @Marilyn Jackson Oliver, NW replied to you. (Then shortly after, put up a new thread.) Anyway, when you read it, except for checking the cookies and cache (which I have NO idea how to do), I’ve done everything else. Sent two messages to the address she gives and, of course, sent her two messages on Twitter. My laptop is Chrome so the internet I use on it is Google (Chrome). iPhone and iPad, I use Safari. I explained all that in my messages to her and to the help desk. It doesn’t make sense that I can’t login on ANY of them. Can you respond to her on this new thread? Thanks!!!

    Terri Dilts is also having serious problems getting into TOD to comment. I wonder what the gremlins in WordPress are? Congrats, Bobfr!

        I found a roundabout way in that I had not done before. There were several logos under the post on the right side before and I touched the W for word press and logged in that way when touching post did not get me to the log in page. I am on an iPad. I see that once you are logged in the choices under the post box disappear. I do not just randomly touch things as I have done that before and had everything disappear. I think it is a generational fear thing my grandchildren and even children do not have due to growing up with technology.

          Hi OG, that is exactly what I finally figured out I needed to do when I wanted to log in. And I have stayed logged in, which was not normal before for me. Great!
          I hope this helps those out there who are having trouble logging in as it has been very quiet at TOD for the last few days. We miss you DF and TerriD and others.

    Nerdy Wonka. I just heard from Desertflower too about her problems. Here is her message

    Hey, Marilyn!! It’s aka desertflower..I am having a terrible time getting out of moderation on TOD! I wasn’t able to login and had to change all my info… can’t remember my original desertflower sign in because I’ve been on TOD since 2008 and have no idea anymore!!! I had to change my name to marleysperson and now TOD doesn’t recognize me anymore. I have no idea if anyone can see what I post and all my stuff is in moderation. I’ve asked Nerdy, BEGGED her to get me out… even emailed. Nothing. I see others have had trouble too. Any ideas? I could use some help getting her attention with this.
    Hope all is well with you..hope spring is around the corner:) let me know what you think about my TOD dilemma:)

    • March 7, 2019 at 3:17 pm

      Ask how to find your “system preferences” and uncross the box “Block All Cookies”. Now the box is empty.
      Go to TOD and type ‘test’.
      Then press ‘Post Comment’.
      Press the W for WordPress on the bottom right.
      Type in your email or TOD name. Type the secret sauce password.
      -Fingers and eyebrows crossed!

      Hello MTMarilyn,

      Ask her to google how to clear your cache on Chrome and it will walk her through the steps. She can also google how to unblock cookies on Chrome and it should walk her through the steps as well.

      Also for everyone else, when you visit http://www.theobamadiary.com and click on a post, you should scroll down to the bottom and where it states ‘Leave A Reply’ click on that and you will see three logos: One for WordPress, One that is a bird (Twitter), and an f (Facebook). Choose the WordPress logo and login with your username and password.

      For some who have Twitter, they choose to login using the Twitter logo.

      This is how everyone is logging in right?

      • March 7, 2019 at 8:07 pm

        NW, it seems to think I’m new to TOD, and keeps me in moderation. Even though I’ve signed in at WP.

      • March 8, 2019 at 12:31 am

        Thank you NW.

        Yes, I log in via Twitter as I’ve been doing for years.

        Every time I attempt to post a comment or reply I’m forced to log out of Twitter and log in again – as described in previous comments.

        I explained, in great detail to whomever WordPress has contract managing their blog service. The responses I received were incredulously stupid. They demonstrated no capacity to even read and kept asking for what amounted to my having to repeat precisely the sequence of events and that this bug is recent – as of ~ 3 weeks ago.

        So, I gave up and will just continue logging out and logging to post – as i’m about to do now.

        None of this has anything to do with you and it is truly regrettable you have to be bothered with these hassles given how dedicated you are to maintaining TOD.

    Cloture: We all know McConnell’s pet obstructionist tactic for breaking a filibuster. Between 1917 and 2013: “nearly 3 in 10 of all cloture motions…were filed during McConnell’s tenure as Minority Leader”. McConnell: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president….We have a new president with an approval rating in the 70 percent area”. (uh-oh)
    His strategic response to such a massively popular President was to block PBO’s every possible accomplishment = GOP does nothing bipartisan.
    Blocking Garland, according to McConnell, was the most consequential decision “of his entire career”.
    McConnell risked our presidential election (assuming he didn’t know the outcome) and risked United States National Security by blocking the timely public reporting of proven Russian meddling. How is he still walking around free?
    –No limits to what McConnell will do now or later as he is owned by Koch Oil and Putin.

    • March 7, 2019 at 4:29 pm

      “If a Democrat wins the White House in 2020, but Republicans retain the Senate, McConnell could be even more aggressive. He could refuse to confirm any judicial nominee named by the new president. Or even refuse to confirm any of the new president’s executive branch officials. Thanks to the Supreme Court’s decision in NLRB v. Noel Canning, moreover, McConnell could also prevent the president from naming recess appointees to fill Cabinet jobs.”
      https://thinkprogress.org/democrats-need-senators-not-presidential-candidates-475923f5e4ea/
      –Great article explaining “The Senate Time Bomb”. And why some of our great candidates must run & win the Senate before the American sands of time run out.

        March 7, 2019 at 4:48 pm

        And we can all work our butts off to deny McConnell being reelected to the Senate, since his term is up in 2020. Even if we win the Senate in 2020, and do not deny him reelection, he will still be there as Minority Leader, which means, I’m sure, he will figure out multiple ways to cause problems for Democrats. Listen to The Daily talk about him and his background and what motivates him. Very informative of what and who we are dealing with. (30min)

      I log in by clicking on WordPress. It works just fine on my PC at work, but on my Macbook Air at home, I can click on WordPress, and it logs me in, but if I want to like your posts, it won’t let me. However I can comment and it goes through.

      March 7, 2019 at 8:51 pm

      I stay logged in and for some reason I got kicked off and was made to login again. It will not let me use my desertflower name because it says that that name is already taken. Surprise! It’s me! I have no idea what my password for that screen name is because it’s been mine since 2008 and I forgot it. Now I’m having to provide a new name to WP so that I can comment and I can’t be seen here because I’m in moderation all the time and never get taken off. Can we please fix this?

      • 55 marleysperson
        March 7, 2019 at 8:53 pm

        The name I have to use now is marleysperson. Marley is my dog’s name… and I’m his person. That’s all I got.

      Thank you for all this in information NW. Here is the message I got from tnmtngirl.

      I’m back. We tried clearing the cookies from TOD. Didn’t change a thing. Here’s what is happening as plainly as I can make it. I click on the ‘W’ for Word Press. I put in my username, tnmtngirl, click Continue and put in my password. I get “Oops, incorrect password.” So, I got back and use my email, click Continue and it says, “User does not exist.” In trying everything I can think of, one time I asked for a new password BUT it’s not possible for me to be sent on because WP isn’t recognizing my email address. When I joined TOD, I had a bellsouth address. It took awhile for Chips to make the change for me. (I couldn’t login until she did.) I think it is something from WP because never before have we had to click on the W (or Twitter or Facebook). Before there were three things in a form right below the comment box. Email, user name and The Obama Diary. Enter those things and click Post Comment and it was done. Usually, we just always stayed signed in. This all began about a month or 5 weeks ago. That’s when various people began complaining.

      Seriously?!?!? “Has lived an otherwise blameless life”???? So, if I remember correctly this dude is being sentenced next week in another case of serious wrong doing. Right? Was this judge put on the bench by McConnell or something? Gah!!

      • March 7, 2019 at 8:39 pm

        He’s a Reagan appointee, one who has spoken forcefully against Special Prosecutors. He’s trash.

        Manafort is a lifelong stone cold criminal thug through and through, a brazen thief on the global circuit. This is without question a travesty.

    • 73 Hillary Darton

      That judge might as well been sitting up there with his MAGA Putin’s hat.

    • 74 Obama Grandmama
      March 7, 2019 at 10:25 pm

      Blameless life? Only because he was not caught earlier sorta like Trump skating away from all his crimes most of his life. I hope next week’s judge sentences Manafort more strictly and the sentence is added to his present sentence so he is not able to serve both sentences at the same time. And I hope Trump does not win another term and instead serves time for his crimes in jail. What I really wish is that the clock could be turned back on all of Trump’s executive actions and decisions. Mitch McConnell’s judge appointments and not allowing PBO to make his own appointments seems like a crime to our nation to me.

    Irrespective of the total failure of Ellis to uphold justice, Manafort has nothing but jail in front of him because besides his sentencing next week, a bunch of folk are waiting in the wings to keep filing charges and arresting him.

  36. March 8, 2019 at 3:46 am

    Judge Ellis-Trump-Putin: Walk on air! tell me what is the backstory.
    And I think, i think of all those still in jail, still in jail, the lives all those lives. still in jail for nowt.

      This is how a lot of these younguns think nowadays, and they use social media as their life line- no research, no governmental knowledge, or appreciation of world history. Just feelings. Like I said over at POU, she wouldn’t know how to get out of a wet suit, less alone a war. Too many people DO NOT belong in government, and with these types, we’d better be afraid of the future.

    I made my Twitter DM’s open to all, which means anyone can DM me or have someone else DM me on their behalf if you are experiencing moderation issues.

    Still working with WordPress to get this figured out.

    Thanks for your patience.

      Thanks so very much, NW. I felt so bad bothering you! Also wondered if WP was trying to mess w/ traffic to TOD. It was weird. Always appreciate your fab work! ❤
