  1. What a fucking idiot. Just put a mic on Trump and let him hang himself. Trumpers are just flat out embarrassed and taking it out on the realists.
  2. LOL watching Trumpers pretzel their way into defending the indefensible, bending whatever facts / circumstances required at the time, while claiming a moral standing.
  3. This is what mob boss sounds like; that last paragraph, the petty bravado. btw, he's attacking a supposedly nonpolitical, independent fed chairman. Trumpers beat their chests at this kinda crap, but this pos is a disgrace to the office. “We have a man that doesn’t do anything for us,” Trump said in a wide-ranging interview on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” contrasting Powell’s decision to hike interest rates with the policies of places like China and Europe. Trump has repeatedly hammered Powell over his rate hikes, prompting the Federal Reserve chairman to say in a speech on Tuesday that he would resist the political pressure emanating from the White House and the president’s Twitter feed. A day after Trump accused Powell of acting like a “stubborn child” for not cutting interest rates last week, Powell defended the central bank’s insulation from politics — a signature facet of the U.S. financial system — saying that Congress aimed to avoid “the damage that often arises when policy bends to short-term political interests.” Trump argued to host Maria Bartiromo on Wednesday that Powell “should’ve never raised the [interest] rates to the level that he raised them,” complaining that the Fed was constraining economic growth. And when Bartiromo brought up Powell’s remarks, the president responded with ridicule. “So now he’s trying to prove how tough he is because ‘he’s not gonna get pushed around,’” Trump said mockingly. “Here’s a guy — nobody ever heard of him before, and now, I made him, and he wants to show how tough he is.” https://www.politico.com/story/2019/06/26/trump-mocks-jerome-powell-1383279
  4. Jerry Falwell Jr. making news again defending prez pos, and it's not going over so well: https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/450360-jerry-falwell-jr-questions-evangelical-leader-over-images-of
  5. One blessing from the wind down of the Mueller investigation is a whole lot less of Giuliani's ramblings. That guy is the unofficial minister of misinformation.
  6. ,...The campaign is further stated to have "welcomed" this ongoing interference as they “expected [to] benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts”.[13][14][15] It also identifies links between Trump campaign officials and individuals with ties to the Russian government,[16] about which several persons connected to the campaign made false statements and obstructed investigations.[17] During the investigation, the special counsel recommended the indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his former deputy Rick Gates, and they were found guilty of criminal offenses stemming from their prior lobbying work for the Ukrainian Party of Regions. However, the investigation did not find sufficient evidence to conclude that the campaign "coordinated or conspired with the Russian government in its election-interference activities" and did not pursue charges for others beyond Manafort and Gates under statutes governing conspiracy or foreign agents.[17][18] Investigators ultimately had an incomplete picture of what happened due to communications that were encrypted, deleted or unsaved, as well as testimony that was false, incomplete or declined.[19][20][21] Mueller later stated that his investigation's conclusion on Russian interference "deserves the attention of every American".[22] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mueller_Report
  7. Sen Bennett echoed this exact same sentiment, specifically targeting McConnell and the freedom Caucus. They push a relatively narrow, uncompromising agenda and will not move on too many things outside of that (aka Mitch’s graveyard). Can Washington work in a bipartisan way? Possible, but not probable. And yes the repubs have a majority of the blame here. Until I see centrists from both parties (hard to do when they’re busy water fetching for Trumps latest bs), I’m not buying the narrative that the Dems need to be more practical.
  8. Former Fox News reporter Carl Cameron said Monday that he left the network favored by conservatives because "right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation." Cameron made the remarks in a promotional video about why he joined Front Page Live, a website whose goal is, in part, to serve as an antidote to the conservative Drudge Report. "What’s a former Fox guy doing here on Front Page Live partnering with progressives?" Cameron, who worked at Fox News for more than two decades, said in the video. "Well, it’s about facts, not partisanship." Cameron, now Front Page Live's chief political correspondent, said he joined Fox News in its early days because the "idea of fair and balanced news appealed to me." "But over the years, the right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation. I left," he added before noting that he has "unique insight and understanding of how the right operates and literally 30 years of covering Donald Trump." https://thehill.com/homenews/media/450079-former-fox-news-reporter-says-he-left-because-of-partisan-misinformation
  9. and now in addition to spearheading aggressive deregulation, the EPA wants to limit the Freedom of Information Act process. Well at least it's a good thing they have built up so much goodwill and credibility beforehand,... Political appointees at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will soon have the authority to reject public information requests without explanation. The EPA’s new Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) rule will expand the ability of the agency’s administrator and other administration officials to withhold sought-after documents by labeling them “non-responsive,” according to a copy of the final rule obtained by The Hill. The rule is expected to be published in the Federal Register as early as Wednesday and will not allow for a public comment period. According to the new language in the FOIA rule signed by EPA chief Andrew Wheeler last week, the administrator and other officials would be allowed to review all materials that fit a FOIA request criteria, known as responsive documents, and then decide “whether to release or withhold a record or a portion of a record on the basis of responsiveness or under one or more exemptions under the FOIA, and to issue ‘no records’ responses.” https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/450169-new-epa-rule-would-expand-trump-officials-power-to-reject-foia-requests
  10. It’s like stand up comedy from someone with an affliction. Radicalization is a helluva drug.
