Richard W. Painter‏ @RWPUSA 20h

This week we will find out which senators have the courage it takes to do their jobs. Here’s one. The others can start packing.

Schumer to Trump: Don't even think about it

https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2018/04/10/chuck-schumer-senate-floor-trump-mueller-warning-bts.cnn

When you strike at a king, you must kill him (or as Omar said it, "You come at the king, you best not miss").   

Does he really have enough Republicans who will stand up to Trump?   I doubt it.

Supposedly legislation was supposed to be introduced today to protect Mueller.   If it fails, it will give Trump the confidence to fire Rosenstein and keep going until Mueller is gone.

@walaa_3ssaf No, dopey, I would not go into Syria, but if I did it would be by surprise and not blurted all over the media like fools.

5:09 AM - 29 Aug 2013

More than one....

Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump

What other country tells the enemy when we are going to attack like Obama is doing with ISIS. Whatever happened to the element of surprise?

Why do we keep broadcasting when we are going to attack Syria. Why can't we just be quiet and, if we attack at all, catch them by surprise?

You can't fix stupid!

 

Donald Trump if he would have been our commander in chief during WWII doing a radio broadcast June 5th, 1944 " We are coming for you Adolph,  with some of the biggest boats, the biggest guns and we won't be attacking where you think"

So is Trump willing to start a war to cover up pornstar payments? 

Any and every decision that Trump has ever made in his life is based solely on how it effects him personally.  So to answer your question, yes. Absolutely. If he thinks it will distract and take heat off of him, he will have no problem starting a war that would kill millions.

GOP Congressman Rips Trump in Insane Tirade to Journo

Quote

This strange — but insane — tale begins with Erick Ericksonwandering the aisles of a Safeway supermarket. He’s accompanied by a Republican congressman who regularly appears on Fox News to defend President Donald Trump....

...“It’s like Forrest Gump won the presidency, but an evil, really f--king stupid Forrest Gump. He can’t help himself. He’s just a f--king idiot who thinks he’s winning when people are b---hing about him. He really does see the world as ratings and attention. I hate Forrest Gump. I listen to your podcast and heard you hate it too. What an overrated piece of s--t movie. Can you believe it beat the Shawshank Redemption?”

"I say a lot of s--t on TV defending him, even over this. But honestly, I wish the mo--erf*c--r would just go away. We're going to lose the House, lose the Senate, and lose a bunch of states because of him. All his supporters will blame us for what we have or have not done, but he hasn't led. He wakes up in the morning, sh--ts all over Twitter, sh--ts all over us, sh--ts all over his staff, then hits golf balls. F--k him. Of course, I can't say that in public or I'd get run out of town."

Trump is a genius. He’s really going to drain the swamp by emptying the Republican Party of power for an amount of time. Trump is the wolf is sheeps clothing and the Republicans allowed him into the henhouse. After his four years he is going to make like a banana and leave. Genius!

Not sure where to put this but...http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2017/04/pastor-celebrated-orlando-massacre-found-guilty-child-molestation/

"Pastor Who Celebrated Orlando Massacre Found Guilty Of Child Molestation"

Quote

Anti-gay pastor who claimed Orlando massacre victims got “what they deserve” is found guilty of eight counts of child molestation.

Pastor Ken Adkins, who had congregations in Atlanta, Jacksonville, and Brunswick, Georgia, was arrested late last summer on eight charges of child molestation and aggravated child molestation. 

On Monday a jury found Pastor Adkins guilty on all charges. Adkins, 57, now faces life in prison. He will be sentenced on April 25.

The news about Pruitt keeps getting worse, if that is possible.

https://twitter.com/kylegriffin1/status/984175513081122816

Scott Pruitt wanted EPA memorabilia, including challegnge coins, leather-bound notebooks, fountain pens, and stationary, to have the EPA seal removed and replaced with his name prominently featured, NYT reports.

I’m constantly struck how these people remind me of corrupt rural parish officials. And yet they are in DC.

Sarah Sanders said in a press briefing today that Robert Mueller – a combat veteran who was awarded the Bronze Star, a Purple Heart, etc.  and the longest serving FBI director in history not named Hoover – is bad for America.

Have we updated the big board for this one:

Washington (CNN)Nadia Schadlow, the US deputy national security adviser for strategy, has resigned and will leave her position at the end of the month, multiple administration officials told CNN.

Schadlow is the third senior national security official to resign or be pushed out in the wake of national security adviser John Bolton's entrée to the White House. She submitted her resignation on Tuesday, according to a copy of her resignation letter obtained by CNN, and a senior White House official said she will remain in her role until April 27 to assist with the transition.

To be fair, it is opposite day at the White House.

Reports of "zombie-like" raccoons across northeast Ohio baffled police and began attracting national headlines. The animals have been spotted exhibiting bizarre behavior around the city of Youngstown since January 2018.

Are you aware that you can be a Trump supporter and still have logical conversations using intelligent logic?   I'm a Journey fan, but I have no problem saying that Raised on Radio sucked donkey balls.  When you prance around acting like your guy is perfect and never admitting fault and being blind to every thing that's happening around you, you better be prepared to be a 'target', as you like to call it.  You, like most Trump supporters, are in way too deep at this point and have no intentions of looking at the facts and making a rational decision on anything. It's simply "trump is good, any opposition is bad". You have given up on thinking at this point. 

Journey sucks.

I actually appreciate what she's saying and I'd defend her objective.  But, yeah, the optics are terrible for her to not admit she agrees with well settled precedent on a landmark civil rights case.

Although she called the decision correct, she also said she shouldn't comment on Supreme Court decisions with which she disagrees.  Unless she was just having a hard time with English, she disagrees with the outcome.

not necessarily - did not see any more than the clip - but if you comment on the "correctness" of one case, but then decline to speak about another case - you are implicitly disagreeing with the 2nd case (since you have shown you will say you agree.).  So the better option is to not comment on any case - which I think is what she is trying to do here - just not very artfully.

Here's what was said:

Quote

 

Blumenthal: Do you believe that Brown v. Board of Education was correctly decided?

Vitter: I don’t mean to be coy, I think I get into a difficult area when I start commenting on Supreme Court decisions—which are correctly decided and which I may disagree with. Again, my personal, political, or religious views I would set aside. That is Supreme Court precedent. It is binding. If I were honored to be confirmed I would be bound by it and of course I would uphold it.

Blumenthal: [long pause] ... Do you believe it was correctly decided?

Vitter: Again, I would respectfully not comment on what could be my bosses ruling—the Supreme Court—I would be bound by it, and if I start commenting on ‘I agree with this case’ or ‘don’t agree with this case’ I think we get into a slippery slope.

 

All she had to do was say, "Yes."   She wasn't asked about any other case or about her personal, political or religious views.   She specifically said her problem was commenting on cases that "are correctly decided" which she may disagree with.   She volunteered that she had a personal problem with the decision.

Yeah, while I agree that these sorts of questions aren't good because a judge shouldn't have preconceived leanings or biases, she really sounds bad here in the way she said things. A reasonable person could infer from her comment that she believes Brown v. Board was incorrectly decided (for which I do suppose a hypertechnical, non-racist argument could be made for but if that was my position I'd sure as hell explain it that way).

I stand by my comment.  If she says "yes" here, and then is asked about a different case later - and says "no comment" - then the inference is she disagrees with the "No Comment" case.  If you are going the "no comment" route, you have to be consistent.

 

I don't know her - and it could be that she disagrees with Brown for any number of reasons.  But, I would expect any judge to answer similarly - "It does not matter what my personal beliefs are - that is a Supreme Court decision, which I would respect in any ruling/decision I made as a judge."

She didn't say that though, and she wasn't asked about her personal beliefs.   She said it was correctly decided, and then volunteered information about her personal beliefs.  Because she knew the question was about her history of racism.

Hint:  She and her husband are racists.  

I get that now - never knew who she was before this...

 

but:   Later she practiced at a boutique litigation firm specializing in maritime law and other matters.

Doesn't @Henry Ford want to do maritime stuff, or am I misremembering that?  :oldunsure:
