Lessons from history

Lessons from history

Eight years ago Delaware Liberal, at the time a broadsheet hand scribed on 24lb premium linen paper, admonished Thurman Adams to “Die or get off the pot!” Adams, never one to get off the pot, later died. That’s how powerful the broadsheet was back before Twitter.

A few years later, this blog’s dogged reporting and rapier wit caused Mike Castle to quit politics.

Now we are engaged in getting rid of Tom Carper. If history is any guide, Carper is done.

Dear United States Senate, Where the f*ck are Trump’s Tax Returns?

Dear United States Senate, Where the f*ck are Trump’s Tax Returns?

Just sayin’

With all the hurly-burley, the country has lost track of the fact that Trump first obscured his criminal activity (money laundering) by keeping his taxes secret.  If Coons and Carper want to look like super bipartisan, can’t they get a couple of their buds to co-sponsor legislation that REQUIRES candidates for the office of President of the United States to disclose their tax information?

Unnamed GOP congressman goes off on Trump: ‘We might as well impeach the Motherfucker’

Filed in National by on April 11, 2018 6 Comments

This is via Jen Hayden and Dkos. I’m just putting the whole thing right here.

Conservative blogger Erik Erickson is reporting that during his trip to Washington, D.C., he met up with an as-of-yet-unnamed Republican congressman, one who has publicly been very supportive of Donald Trump, and during their clandestine walk through the aisles of a grocery store outside of D.C. (they didn’t want to be seen), this Republican congressman absolutely went off on Trump and his disastrous leadership. From Erickson’s report:

“Shareholder Primacy” is still killing capitalism

“Shareholder Primacy” is still killing capitalism

Every once in a while it is worth remembering that the concept of Shareholder Primacy (the theory that the sole purpose of a firm is to make money for its shareholders) is 48 years old, and not some immutable truth that has always existed. Born on September 13, 1970, and still kicking.

I’m storing up some cord blood in response to Delaware mumps outbreak

If we’ve lost our community immunity and I, or some member of my vaccinated family, get the measels, mumps, or whooping cough – I’m going to be pissed off. In a follow-up on the mumps outbreak in New Castle County, Delaware, health officials confirmed two additional cases Friday, bringing the total to 13. Nine of the […]

It took a primary challenge from Kerri Harris to get Tom Carper off his ass

It took a primary challenge from Kerri Harris to get Tom Carper off his ass

Tom Carper finally did some actual work to resist the criminal misrule of the Manchurian Orange. This reveals a couple of things. 1) Carper doesn’t have to be the waste of space that he’s been. He chooses to be a bank-toadying, waste of space. 2) Primaries and elections work. We need to hold politicians accountable and we do so through elections.

Never having faced a Dem challenger, Tom never needed to get off his ass. Now he has one.

The Environment Protection Agency’s (EPA) inspector general announced Monday evening he would review employment records pertaining to Samantha Dravis, who resigned last week as the agency’s senior counsel and associate director of its Office of Policy.

In a letter sent late last month, Sen. Tom Carper, D-Delaware, asked the inspector general to investigate Dravis’ employment record. According to Carper, Dravis “did not attend work or perform her duties for much if not all of the months of November 2017-January 2018.” Carper also wrote that he had been informed that Dravis “was likely compensated as a full-time employee throughout that time.”

FBI Raids Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen’s Office

The FBI on Monday raided the office of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, obtaining a search warrant after referral from the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller according to the New York Times.

Agents reportedly seized materials related to the $130,000 payment Cohen made to porn actress Stormy Daniels days before the 2016 election to prevent her from speaking out about the alleged affair she had with President Donald Trump. The FBI, the Times reported, seized “records related to several topics.”

Trump spoke out about the case for the first time last week, telling reporters on Thursday that he didn’t know about the payment. He referred questions to Cohen.

Jason330 predicts your financial future ….drumrolll….

Misery.

That’s what’s on tap for the stupid lazy 93% of Americans who are so dumb that we are not yet millionaires. How do I know?

Imagine a subprime lending industry that charges exorbitant rates loans to people least suited to afford them. Imagine that this industry (deregulated by Tom Carper), has been free to obscure the real risks of sub-prime lending by spinning the shitty debt into high-risk/high-yield bonds. Now imagine that this fraudulent scam is collapsing, and three prominent players are shut down spectacularly and suddenly through bankruptcies and fraud investigations.

You don’t have to imagine it…because it is already here.

Welcome to Carmageddon: The subprime car-lending industry bubble is popped and it is not going to end well.

Larry Kudlow is 70% Bullshit and 30% Dipshit

It is easy to play a financial genuis on Fox News. You simply praise tax cuts, and take credit for whatever economic prosperity is still hanging around from the most recent Democratic administration. In real life, being an economic genius is a little more difficult. President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser on Sunday had little […]
