    Sticking my nose in to say ‘Hello, everybody’, as I head to discover what’s happened since last night.

    Have an uplifting Thursday, please!

    People do not seem to quickly learn the difference between serving

    ;

    By trying to bow to the whims of evil corrupt Individual 1, barr put the DOJ in an untenable situation ….

    ;

    ……………………… now every action will be scrutinized – and deservedly so ……,

    ;

    ……………. the DOJ is in the line of fire and will continue to be unless they are seen to be transparent and acting based on the law and not any political considerations;

    ;

    ……………………….millions saw with their own eyes or read reports about, members of Team Treason engage in wrong-doing (for me read criminal actions) before, during, and after the election.

    ;

    …………. but forces were activated to make these millions believe that what they in fact saw or read is “nothing to see here”

    ;

    ……. why does anyone expect people not to be outrage and suspicious????

    ;

    Does anyone know the role of Rosenstein in all this mess????

      trump, you can have my answer now, if you like. My offer is this: nothing. Not even the fee for the gaming license, which I would appreciate if you would put up personally.

    the gop has packed the courts.

    but based on their record, I doubt that those individuals they are placing in those positions have clean backgrounds with no legally-compromising issues associated with these lifetime judge”;

    so while the evil senate leader thinks he has it figured out, I would think that one of the first acts that Democrats or a sharp-minded and anti-corruption reporter should so is to thoroughly investigate these appointees.

    clean them out at the critical time when they can no longer be replaced by other right-wingers. this should be a long-term project …. well, I live in hope that in the end justice will prevail

      the congress (by this I mean a Democratic Party dominated and led congress) can review and establish new ethical and performance standards for judicial staff.

      based on these standards, the unqualified and unethical judges can be removed from the bench.

    • April 4, 2019 at 3:32 pm

      The GOP may be trying to pack the courts…but a DEM Congress and Pres can impose term limits on the Judges …a Dem Sen will have to get rid of the Filibuster…we are in a fight for our democracy…we cannot afford to lose

      Did I mention that Trump is behind this pre-boxing match attack on VP Joe?
      Meanwhile the second woman has a letter out thanking Putin and saying how much she loves Russia…done.
      Trump just cannot help himself. And there will be more attacks on his other opponents if he gets his sad little way.

      One cannot help noticing that every coloured person #Idiot45 promotes,/nominates/whatever (to prove he isn’t racist?) is an idiot. Is he trying to offer evidence that coloured people are incompetent &/ dishonest? Deep sigh! I have /had/ this private, quiet, life theory that there is some ‘good’ in the worst of us and some ‘bad’ in the best of us, but I cannot find a-ny-thing ‘good’ in #Idiot45. Deeper sigh!

        I had heard that “coloured people” is okay in Australia as it refers to various ethnic groups, but it is not in the US and has not been so for over 50 years. It was once used to refer to Black American citizens only until Black people demanded to identify themselves and have that respected. Black or African-American is appropriate for that group of citizens. Other ethnic groups have their own designations if they choose to use them but most are covered by white privilege. Recently, POC, or people of color, has been used to refer to various non-white citizens as a group. The nuances are very important in the US. FYI.
        Bot mad, but it was jarring to see this out-dated description.

          Good morning, Cae. My sincere apologies. Funny enough I first wrote ‘black’ people, then changed it because I was trying to include all POC. Shows how much I don’t internalize (or maybe how much my brain is slipping?). Major sigh! I did not mean to offend – I’m sorry.

            Good West Coast morning my international sister. Those of us who have been on TOD since the beginning of time, know you well and will not take offense to your use of those words.

            We people have become super sensitive and we are quick to take offense.

            We apologize.

    Two thoughts (a) Barr used Special Counsel Mueller as a character reference during his confirmation hearing by citing their long term friendship. I don’t know how things are going between them now. In my own life, I have had very close friends use my name or exploited my generosity. At the end I felt violated! (b) what role is Rosenberg played in this Barr fiasco?

    Hey now you see Health care – now you don’t.
    “Trump promises a great healthcare plan, but we can’t see unless he wins a second term. Trump has promised a great healthcare plan since 2015, and Republicans have been claiming that they have a plan to replace Obamacare for almost a decade. There is no Republican plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. Republicans have nothing. They plan to kill Obamacare and go back to the old system that everyone hated.”

    For the first time in about 20 some years of being involved in Presidential Elections I have no idea who I’m going to support this election cycle. I like Kamala, I like Beto and I like VP Joe but I just don’t know right now. It feels a bit weird.

    LIVE: Giant Trump balloon floats over US-Mexico border – https://abcnews.go.com/Live

  60. April 5, 2019 at 2:33 pm

    You know Trump wants to stop VP Biden from running…so here’s a thing.
    imo if you make a list of all the media outlets going after Joe = there’s your trump media list ahead of the election.
    Joe has been on the world stage since he was a young man. These journalists know he didn’t do anything wrong.
    Articles today about the VP making reference (he had to) to the issue in his talk today, accuse him of ‘joking’ and imply he is making light of women. What they avoid is the obvious truth that he is confident because he is innocent. Doing what he has always done. A loving, expressive, honorable man who spent his career looking out for women.
    -Hey go to Canada, go to Paris! Guys you don’t know so well and may never see again will greet you by kissing you on both cheeks.
    -Don’t freak out…so you touch! I’m from a working class family where kind physical expression is a given and wanted.
    -Trump doesn’t have a look-in. With Joe. And Trump knows it. They don’t belong in the same sentence.
    -Trump’s long history of abusing women is on the record. And imo motive enough to try and project it onto VP Biden. Good luck with that.

    imo,
    Whoever runs will have the traitorous right wing Putin mob doing their worst. Orchestrated by foreign corporations and the global far right. (Part 2)
    = Not saying that running is the best thing for Joe. He deserves to be happy and enjoy life! And I so very much want that for him and his family.
