Trump’s Tweets

Trump’s Tweets

I’ve said from the beginning that the press should not call them “tweets” but “statements.” We’ve given Trump’s statements through twitter a special status. Because they mostly seem like nonsense, and because they tumble out like jazz improvisations, they don’t get any real scrutiny from the press and public. As a result, they shield the President from the outrage that they should produce.

We’ve laughed at a shrugged off the most appalling changes in our democracy that Trump has made because they were made through Twitter.

Now Trump states on Twitter that he reserves the right to obstruct justice and use the power of Presidential pardon to free Paul Manafort if Manafort continues to obstruct the investigation into Russian interference in the election.

Trump reserves the right to obstruct justice by pardoning Paul Manafort. He said it on Twitter.

When voters have a legitimate choice – we win

The last unresolved House Race Of 2018 was won by the Democrat. The Dems flipped 40 seats. A huge wave. The aggregate Democratic House vote this year is 90.6% of the total votes cast for Hillary Clinton in 2016. See collaborationist Democrats? When voters actually have something to vote for during the midterms, we win. […]

Carney’s Pitiful Uselessness Laid Bare

Carney’s Pitiful Uselessness Laid Bare

This is some good blogging by Delaware Dem.

For me, it tends to support El Som’s assertion that Carney may be a dead man walking.

Read the whole thing, but this is where Carney gets his ass beaten raw by Vice Chancellor J. Travis Laster:

Coons lends his empty “hopes and prayers” to the nation

Coons lends his empty “hopes and prayers” to the nation

Coons just got a chance to promote his prayer breakfast on Morning Joe. The MSNBC panel ate it up, of course.

Nobody seemed to recognize the irony of Coons extolling the value of praying with his GOP buddies every week just after stating that he is “puzzled” by why Mitch McConnell continues to block all efforts to protect the Special Counsel.

Coons…Puzzled

BTW – I missed most of Coons’ segment. I’m sure his commitment to bipartisanship is fixing many problems because… reasons.

General Motors Co. will cut more than 14,000 salaried staff and factory workers and close seven factories worldwide by the end of next year, part of a sweeping realignment to prepare for a future of electric and self-driving vehicles… The Detroit-based company’s shares surged on the plan, which includes abandoning some of its slower-selling sedan […]

Barrish files his septennial – the DEGOP has died story

As noted by Cris Barrish, the DEGOP died back in 2010. [Ken Simpler was a cadaveric spasm.] There is no stomach for the GOP’s toxic stew of anti-science, pro-racism, and 24/7 “abortion is murder” chit-chat outside of Sussex. That said, Barrish filed another “DEGOP Obit” this time for WHYY. Three takeaways: Dave Lawson is a […]

So what is the Dem strategy on Border Chaos?

So what is the Dem strategy on Border Chaos?

It is clear that the Republicans have decided that ever more chaos on our southern border is a winning issue for them, so what is the Democratic strategy to address this reality?

A standard Democratic response would be to agree with Republicans on most points while trying to explain that Democrats would do everything Republicans would do but do it with less asshole-ishness. That’s the “we are less bad” strategy centrists Dems love to lose with. I’d expect Chris Coons and his prayer breakfast buddies to come out with some statement shortly that concedes that Trump is right on border security, but they’d appreciate him being more kind or some similar shit.

My hope, however, is that the Democratic strategy manages to veer away from the tried and failed centrism of the past. And will be more proactive on the battle economic ground issues that won them their seats in Congress and governorships. If the new members of Congress manage to move Democratic away from the Chris Coons’ of the world, and the defensive crouch that is the go-to posture for Democrats, they will be fulfilling the mandate they won on election day.

Regulations, Schmegulations

Regulations, Schmegulations

Shit covered romaine lettuce and this gas leak (that could have been a gas leak with a catastrophic explosion) are probably not related to 20 years of “cutting regulations” that are “choking businesses.” Right?

PENNSVILLE, N.J. (AP) — A chemical leak shut down the Delaware Memorial Bridge in both directions Sunday evening, bringing traffic on a major East Coast artery to a standstill on one of the busiest travel days of the year.

The leak stems from the Delaware chemical production facility Croda Atlas Point, located near the twin suspension bridges on a major route between Washington and New York City, Holloway Terrace Fire Company Public Information Officer George Greenley said.

The leaked chemical is ethylene oxide, a highly flammable gas that is a finished product stemming from methanol, Greenley said.

Thanks

It has been a rough couple of years. Trump has put stress on our democratic systems that it was not built to endure. But rising up to challenge the worst in American, I have seen the best in America. So I’m thankful for you. You tireless door knockers. You determined meeting organizers. You “not today […]

ADMINISTRATION ADMITS BORDER DEPLOYMENT WAS A $200 MILLION ELECTION STUNT

ADMINISTRATION ADMITS BORDER DEPLOYMENT WAS A $200 MILLION ELECTION STUNT

As with many of Trump’s actions, it is tempting to point and laugh. However, this stunt has established a precedent. The President now has the authority to order 6,000 active-duty troops around the country.
It is a newly established Presidential power that is worth noting.

Colleen Davis is bad at driving

This suspended license story is told with breathless excitement by Scott Goss. It was no doubt dictated to him breathlessly. Would it have changed anything if it came out before the election? No. She had an advantage going into the election that Simpler could not match. She got…
