Trump’s phone call with Ukraine’s president

This whole thing with this Ukraine phone call boils down to pretty simple stuff. And when all is told and the truth comes out completely this is how I think it played out. Alexander Vindman was listening in on the call between Trump & Zelensky. He hears where Trump is wanting the investigation into the […]

The timing of these anti Louise Mensch stories stink

The timing of these anti – @KamalaHarris stories stink. Senator Harris easily won the last Democratic debate. Her rival Butteig has crashed and burned with African-American voters in a performance that can only be described as abominable. Butteig’s (white) campaign press people and staffers have responded to black criticism by calling it inauthentic, while his […]

Indian Civil Rights Act

Indian Civil Rights Act. A thread…. B/c I have a lot of new followers, I need to address an important issue. Did you know that Native defendants in tribal courts do not have the protection of the Bill of Rights? Congress has created separate, and unequal, protections in “ICRA” ICRA has some parallel protections to […]

Missed the impeachment hearings over the last 2 weeks?

Missed the impeachment hearings over the last 2 weeks? Well, I watched almost every word (doing commentary for @NBCNews & @MSNBC ) so you didn’t have to. My quick takeaways in one thread. Most people had never heard of these witnesses before. I knew most of them: Ambs Taylor, Volker, Yovanovitch, Lt. Col. Vindman, David […]

Trump-Giuliani Ukraine; “It’s just not credible to me,”

Schiff: “The efforts to secure the investigations would continue for several more days, but appear to have abruptly ended soon after three Committees of Congress announced an investigation into the Trump-Giuliani Ukraine scheme. Only then, would the aid be released.” Nunes kicks off the second part of today’s proceedings by calling it ”act two of […]

When Americans are left to die b/c they can’t afford things like insulin, who or what is that in service to?

When Americans are left to die b/c they can’t afford things like insulin, who or what is that in service to? I need every politician arguing against universal care to answer that. Why are people denied healthcare here & not in other developed nations? How is allowing people to die b/c they can’t afford overpriced […]

Ukrainians considered Giuliani “an important conduit” to Trump.

“I’ve never seen anything like this, someone calling the President from a mobile phone at a restaurant, and then having a conversation of this level of candor, colorful language. There’s just so much about the call that was so remarkable,” Holmes said https://t.co/fdopkzi8ol “I think the Ukrainians gradually came to understand that they were being […]

Julián Castro: “I’m not interested in media stunts.”

Question: Would you take up Pete Buttigieg’s offer to visit South Bend and meet African American constituents? Julián Castro: “I’m not interested in media stunts.” Next up is @JulianCastro. He’s mentioned touring the storm drains underneath the Las Vegas Strip “to shine a light on the fact that we have a housing affordability problem in […]

Stop and frisk is a complex issue and, by and large, a lot of police reform happened when Bloomberg took over from Rudy.

Stop and frisk is a complex issue and, by and large, a lot of police reform happened when Bloomberg took over from Rudy. But another thing that I could see being a campaign issue is the NYPDs violent suppression of Occupy Wall Street and other protests in the Bloomberg years I’ve thought of Occupy a […]

What will Republicans run on in 2020?

Serious question: what will Republicans run on in 2020? We have a trillion dollar deficit. Trump is ending affordable care w/no replacement. Our world standing has fallen. The tax scam hurt most Americans. Kentucky and Louisiana are just the beginning. The Trump brand is toxic! The only “accomplishment” legislatively was the tax scam. Trump and […]

Here’s a Crazy idea

Here’s a crazy idea. Keep the impeachment hearings going until Trump resigns. If he never resigns, the hearings continue. Every time he violates the Constitution there’s an immediate hearing, with all the details provided to the world. Force Repubs to keep defending his criminality. Turn trump into a Queegish blob of incoherence. Alternatively, if McConnell […]
