Houston and Texas cases of COVID-19 exploding (Including my brother) and Pres Bone Spurs doesn’t want to test? Lots of restaurants and businesses are closing again due to employees testing positive. This ended just like we thought it would. Harris County may have to close again. Total blame laid on Pres Bone Spurs and his idiot supporters for allowing him to lead them to this end. I also blame business leaders who should have been all insisted he act responsibly. He’s so incompetent he’s messed up reopening and prolonged our economic pain.

I have to say I think Nadler is very weak and ineffective. Why give Barr until July 28th to come before the House? He should have been given 2 weeks max

why the fuck won't they just pull funding to the DOJ if Barr continues to refuse to testify and play games? Just pull the money already.

You know for a fact if we had a rogue Democratic executive branch and a repub controlled House, they would have already pulled the funding for much less severe behavior

He’s also proudly apolitical. I’m thankful my parents declined his visit after he went to a party with his kids on Memorial weekend. I’ve not spoken to him since for being so irresponsible with not only his life but also his young children. Texas is now feeling the affects in a huge way. Even our dumbass Gov is shook.

Buffalo Barr plans for the late summer to indict a bunch of Obama-era officials and federal investigators for the declared "hoax" Russian investigation. He'll try to name Democratic politicians, i.e. HRC, Obama, Biden & son, Susan Rice, etc. It is all vindictiveness, shallow and non-existing evidence, manufactured accusations, and conjecture. It'll be a desperate effort to deflect and try to get corrupt Trump re-elected. Fox and OAN will be championing Barr's antics. Mainstream media will expose the motive.

by Anonymousreply 6606/25/2020

My guess is that Barr is running an internal investigation of the Bridgegate prosecution. If there's any evidence of wrong-doing, they'll release that information first to lay the foundation for arguing that Obama/Biden misused the office for political purposes. Then they'll start repeating all of the Flynn/Russia bullshit, arguing that Trump was also targeted for political purposes. The public won't take the time to parse out what is legitimate and what is bullshit. The objective is to gin up the base, and to suppress independents by convincing them that both sides are the same. The problem for Barr is that Trump fucks up everything he touches, so he will inevitably fuck up this plan as well.

Explain THIS away, Sean Hannity.

WASHINGTON — American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there, according to officials briefed on the matter.

The United States concluded months ago that the Russian unit, which has been linked to assassination attempts and other covert operations in Europe intended to destabilize the West or take revenge on turncoats, had covertly offered rewards for successful attacks last year.

Islamist militants, or armed criminal elements closely associated with them, are believed to have collected some bounty money, the officials said. Twenty Americans were killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2019, but it was not clear which killings were under suspicion.

Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson, George Conway, Tim Miller (political consultant), Evan McMullin, Bill Kristol, etc. want Trump gone and want Biden to defeat him. That's the only way they see to begin rebuilding the Republican party on prior principles and practices.

They are not sudden Democrats, don't agree with much of the Democrats' policy agenda, and won't be long-term allies with Democrats. However, they detest the Teaparty and the fanatical Trumpsters such as Gym Jordan, Gohmert, Gaetz, Biggs, etc. So they know the GOP without Trump isn't cleansed.

The never Trump GOPers include neocon types, globalists, pro-big business, country club class, elitists, intellectual & policy think tanks, pro-immigration for cheaper labor and more consumers, etc.

Comparatively, they are more moderate on social issues such as LGBT rights and abortion rights. They are not tight with the party's extreme Christian fundamentalists.

The uneasy coalition of the party's white collar wing and religious fundamentalists has lasted since Reagan. But it is very fragile and Trump has exasperated it.

The cable media will dwell essentially on one topic at a time. They have now shifted back to COVID-19 after weeks of focusing almost totally on the protests. Anchors and commentators change each hour or so, but the topic and messaging largely doesn't.

International news gets overlooked. Many worthy domestic stories that don't pertain to the topic at hand, are ignored or buried.

Now I watch more BBC. They cover U.S. news and weather, and what's happening in other countries has coverage.

There was a time, decades back, certain points of view were embraced by establishment Republicans and political conservatives.

*. Conservation. Promoting national parks. Wildlife refuges.

*. Opposition to excessive spending. (Reagan destroyed that thinking). Accountability in spending.

*. Opposing dictatorships

*. Majority didn't resist civil rights legislation.

*. Supported regulations to promoted small businesses development.

*. Supported certain regulations in banking for consideration mer protection.

*. We're open to the idea of National Health Insurance. Nixon proposed this, Ted Kennedy sabotoged it because it wasn't his legislation and didn't go far enough. The country could have had bipartisan NHI back in the early 70s; maybe prior.

*. Generally supportive of immigration.

*. Didn't see church and state as the same.

*. Republicans would compromise on legislation with Democrats. They would collaborate and have conference committees to iron out differences to find a majority consensus. The Mitch McConnell shit of party over everything else didn't dominate. Controversial legislation was brought to the floor, even when the party of the majority largely opposed it. Votes were not near strictly by party identity.

*. Judges and executive appointments were approved more based on experience, education, personal character, and accomplishments; and a bit less so political ideology and party affiliation and activism.

All that is gone.

That said, Democrats also became more partisan and pressed members to tow the party line. LBJ knew the Democratic party in the south would be the minority party moving forward.

It is Trump and his cohorts that have vilified and punished Republicans that dared to disagree with Trump on anything. The Republicans function as a cult. Mitch McConnell, more than any other single individual, has perpetuated this to the most extreme level. *.

Washington Post - In the hours before his rally in Tulsa, President Trump’s campaign directed the removal of thousands of “Do Not Sit Here, Please!” stickers from seats in the arena that were intended to establish social distance between rallygoers, according to video and photos obtained by The Washington Post and a person familiar with the event.

The removal contradicted instructions from the management of the BOK Center, the 19,000-seat arena in downtown Tulsa where Trump held his rally on June 20. At the time, coronavirus cases were rising sharply in Tulsa County, and Trump faced intense criticism for convening a large crowd for an indoor political rally, his first such event since the start of the pandemic.

As part of its safety plan, arena management had purchased 12,000 do-not-sit stickers for Trump’s rally, intended to keep people apart by leaving open seats between attendees. On the day of the rally, event staff had already affixed them on nearly every other seat in the arena when Trump’s campaign told event management to stop and then began removing the stickers, hours before the president’s arrival, according to a person familiar with the event.

Trump Nears Post-Nixon First: No Black Circuit Judges

Donald Trump is on track to be the first president since Richard Nixon to go a full first term without selecting a Black nominee for a federal appeals court.

Just one of Trump’s 53 confirmed appeals court judges is Hispanic and none are Black. That compares to about 27% of President Barack Obama’s and roughly 15% under President George W. Bush, according to a Bloomberg Law analysis of Federal Judicial Center data.

Trump, however, has exceeded both of his immediate predecessors in the percentage of Asian American appointees to federal appeals courts, which explains why about 15% of his appellate appointments have been people of color, compared to roughly 35% under Obama and 15% under Bush.

The figures for Obama and Bush, a Democrat and Republican, respectively, cover their two terms in office. But Trump has appointed nearly as many judges to the appellate courts with his first term not yet complete as they did overall. Every president since Nixon, who took office in 1969, appointed a Black appeals court judge in their first four years save Gerald Ford, who served a partial term, and Trump.

(CNN) - In hundreds of highly classified phone calls with foreign heads of state, President Donald Trump was so consistently unprepared for discussion of serious issues, so often outplayed in his conversations with powerful leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan, and so abusive to leaders of America's principal allies, that the calls helped convince some senior US officials -- including his former secretaries of state and defense, two national security advisers and his longest-serving chief of staff -- that the President himself posed a danger to the national security of the United States, according to White House and intelligence officials intimately familiar with the contents of the conversations.

The images of looting and burning buildings the past few weeks reminds him of race riots in the sixties, and he is absolutely convinced that the "communists" are out to destroy this country and Trump is the only one with the guts to stand up to them. This is the story that Fox is telling him and he believes everything he sees on Fox.

On a different note, he is hearing impaired and needs to put captions on for every channel, except Fox. Fox is loud enough that he can hear fine. I don't know if it's just his TV or something that Fox is doing to make sure the elderly can hear every word.

Fox is beginning to try to put some air between themselves and Trump. Tucker Carlson did a rant about how the Democrats and Republicans have both ignored the middle class. I'll be curious to see if this talking point is repeated in the next few weeks - if so, then we know how the GOP is going to rebrand itself in the face of a blue tsunami. And how they're going to distance themselves from Trump - he was too busy tweeting stupid stuff instead of dealing with middle class issues.

What exactly does Tucker Carlson know about the middle class?

by Anonymousreply 267Last Wednesday at 5:46 AM

I think it's just Tucker going off the Fox reservation. Hannity and Ingraham are still all in for Trump. (Ingraham yesterday suggested Fauci was working for the Biden campaign.) I think Tucker may be angling for a presidential run himself. He has the highest rated show on the network but advertisers continue to desert him. That's not sustainable long term.

CNN's Oliver Darcy reports on last night's show:

Tucker Carlson says Republicans "pretend" to be "champion" of middle-class, but "they are not." He says GOP has only offered "steady diet" of "partisan junk food," like Benghazi hearings. Argues more important to work on things like "saving American jobs from foreign nationals."

Tucker Carlson adds, "We fall for it every time. And to the extent this show has participated in it, we apologize with deepest sincerity."

[bold]Trump in ‘fragile’ mood and may drop out of 2020 race if poll numbers don’t improve, GOP insiders tell Fox News[/bold]

Donald Trump may drop out of the 2020 presidential race if he believes he has no chance of winning, a Republican Party operative reportedly told Fox News.

The claim comes in a report in the president’s favourite news outlet that cites a number of GOP insiders who are concerned about Mr Trump’s re-election prospects amid abysmal polling numbers.

Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, currently holds an average lead of nine points over the incumbent, according to a tracker of 2020 polls by RealClearPolitics.

Crucially, Mr Trump has lost support from older white voters — typically a bedrock of support for the Republican Party and a group that was crucial to his narrow 2016 victory. Mr Trump is also trailing the former vice president in almost all the swing states.

“It’s too early, but if the polls continue to worsen, you can see a scenario where he drops out,” one anonymous GOP operative told Fox News.

Charles Gasparino, the author of the Fox News report, said in a series of tweets that he had spoken to “major players” in the Republican party for the story. One of them described Mr Trump’s mood as “fragile” as his chances of a second-term looked increasingly dim.

Another of the GOP sources cited in the report said of the likelihood that Mr Trump will drop out: “I’ve heard the talk but I doubt it’s true. My bet is, he drops if he believes there’s no way to win.”

Mr Trump has repeatedly hit out at polling that shows him far behind Mr Biden. Last month, he tweeted that Fox News “should fire their Fake Pollster. Never had a good Fox Poll!”

On Monday, he tweeted: "Sorry to inform the Do Nothing Democrats, but I am getting VERY GOOD internal Polling Numbers. Just like 2016, the @nytimes Polls are Fake! The @FoxNews Polls are a JOKE! Do you think they will apologize to me & their subscribers AGAIN when I WIN? People want LAW, ORDER & SAFETY!"

But polls from all polling organisations show Mr Trump consistently behind by similar margins. In particular, they have shown high levels of disapproval over the president’s handling of the coronavirus and mass protests calling for racial justice after the police killing of George Floyd.

A recent Washington Post-Ipsos poll found that 36 per cent of American adults approve of Trump’s handling of the protests, while 62 percent disapprove. A New York Times poll returned similar numbers.

The same New York Times-Siena College poll found 58 per cent of Americans disapprove of his handling of the coronavirus outbreak, while only 38 percent approve — the worst ratings since the crisis began.

The Trump campaign called reports that the president would consider dropping out “the granddaddy of fake news”.

“Everyone knows that media polling has always been wrong about President Trump –­ they undersample Republicans and don’t screen for likely voters –­ in order to set false narratives,” Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh told Fox News.

“It won’t work. There was similar fretting in 2016 and if it had been accurate, Hillary Clinton would be in the White House right now.”

by Anonymousreply 274Last Wednesday at 8:11 AM

Trump is caught between a rock and a stupid place. The rock - he's facing a historic loss in the election. The stupid place - Brad Parscale and the other grifters are presumably telling him that the polls are biased, that he can pull it off like he did in 2016.... all the garbage that Trump wants to believe, so his confidence returns and he feels comfortable doubling-down on his bad behavior. He won't resign until his family tells him it's time to resign.

This scheme will only backfire. An opportunity to appoint 1 or 2 more conservative judges may energise Trump's base which he already topped out but it will hardly move "independents" which he is leaking rapidly. In fact, it will more energise the left to go to the polls which has been lacking for Hillary and appears to be a small problem for Biden still. In order to win Trump needs to move the independents who are more concerned about COVID, economy, and racial stuff.

^

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is denying Congress access to secret grand jury testimony from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation through the November election.

The justices agreed on Thursday to hear the Trump administration’s appeal of a lower court order for the material to be turned over to the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. The high court’s action will keep the documents out of congressional hands at least until the case is resolved, which is not likely to happen before 2021.

Arguments themselves might not even take place before Americans decide whether to give President Donald Trump a second term.

The delay is a victory for Trump, who also is mounting a Supreme Court fight against congressional efforts to obtain his banking and other financial records. Those cases are expected to be decided in the coming days or weeks.

What happens when a teacher has the sniffles or allergies and Has to take off get a test and wait for the results to come back? Do they get paid? my ex is a teacher and he said the guy he’s dating has already stated he can’t see him because he’s going to be around super spreaders and he doesn’t want to bring or catch anything and bring it back to his work or catch it himself of course. Teachers are potentially putting themselves and their families at risk. If a student catches it and brings it back to their family and their family members go to work and spread it at their work it just seems like a potential nightmare scenario. Students are not going to socially distance and policing wearing masks in schools going to be a nightmare. Also are there gonna be any substitutes Willing to come into schools in this environment?

I'm afraid the recent SCOTUS rulings are the consolation prizes, as they will not allow Trump's finances to be made public.

Everyone needs to remember that the only reason Trumps tax returns havent been released is because hes refused to produce them...thats why the subpoenas, which hes refused to acknowledge as well. The law clearly states the IRS has to turn them over to congress if requested, so the new head of the Treasury can order their release whether Trumps wants them to or not...and whether Trump sues or not.

Here’s Michael Flynn, four days after the 2016 election, explaining how the Trump campaign waged "digital warfare" by "citizen journalists" to flood social media with fake news alternative facts to sway voters. Gee, I wonder who hatched that plan?

[quote]Instead of voting for Hillary Clinton, who won the popular vote in Colorado, Micheal Baca cast his vote for John Kasich, the former Republican governor of Ohio. And in Washington state, where Clinton also won the popular vote, three of the state's 12 electors voted for Colin Powell, the former secretary of state.

Petulant brats.

At R381, Flynn comes off as far less intelligent than I had expected.

by Anonymousreply 383Yesterday at 8:06 AM

i'm glad they all agreed about the faithless electors

that seemed like it should have been obvious but with the hard right wingers on the court I had doubts

More winning for Porky Pig Trump!

CNN just reported that Porky Pig’s niece Mary Trump, will have her book published Tuesday July 14, rather than the end of July. Good. I hope she scathed the living shit out of him.

R378 I know we can't go only on oral arguments but last month it sounded like the SCOTUS was very receptive to the Manhattan DA case for getting Trump's taxes. On the other hand it seemed like they thought the lawyer for Congress was making too broad of a case.

Would anyone in the Manhattan DA leak the taxes if only they get them? or would that compromise the case? Would we learn about the contents when the case is finished? Unfortunately that might not be til after the election

it's no accident that the media is following right wing media a bit with lots of reporting about violence over the past weekend.

For the last month right wing media has been trying to portray big liberal cities as hell holes in an attempt to turn people off of police reform. Right wingers who watch that shit are now convinced Democrats want to completely get rid of police.

that narrative of course helps Trump and repubs

"Right wingers who watch that shit" were never going to vote Democratic in the first place, and nobody else is buying it.

Whatever R389. I was totally going to vote for Joe Biden, but all these communist liberals and their protesting has changed my mind.

by Anonymousreply 390Yesterday at 10:57 AM

R389 it depends if the narrative right wing media is throwing at big cities can stick with moderates. We still have 4 months to go until the election. It's clear now with every new shooting that's the card they're going to play. Hopefully it won't work but nothing will surprise me

After the Governor of South Dakota was potentially exposed to Corona Virus through Kimberly Guilfoyle, she flew in the same plane with Trump. This was okayed by Trump's doctors.

I wonder if Trump is actually trying to catch Corona virus, as that would give him an excuse to drop out before he is humiliated by Joe Biden winning in a landslide. With Trump's optimism, he would assume that the Corona wouldn't kill him. And he could spend the rest of his life claiming that if it wasn't for that virus, he would have won.

The Lincoln Project runs excellent ads. They are fanning the divisions within the corrupt Trump cartel, making him even more paranoid.

For Barr to continue his assault on the U.S. Constitution, and continue his efforts to make Trump essentially an Emperor, he needs Trump to have a firm grip on the Republican establishment. Cracks are happening which will expose Barr's nasty tactics and sordid agenda.
