Biden will win in a landslide, but billionaires, and I don’t just say right wing ones, have decided democracy isn’t what they want. They feel their lives would be better if us peons didn’t have a say in our government. Therefore, they will not make this election easy. Buckle up!

Sympathy & Delay……

Following jury selection, will Trump fake an illness and become hospitalized before testimony commences? Will it be very dramatic, happening on a weekend in south Florida while playing 18-hole golf with Lindsey Graham? Lindsey will be part of the scheme, and provide highly ‘emotional narratives to the media immediately afterwards, lasting for many weeks.

Over/under bets anyone?

The procedure overrides the Senate's filibuster rules, which may otherwise require a 60-vote supermajority for passage.

One problem that I see is that abortion is a major issue this election cycle. Getting any kind of abortion protections through the House would be a huge lift in and of itself, but then there aren't enough votes in the Senate to override Prime Minister Manchin. Subsequently, Democrats "lose" the chance to be heroes, while deflating the momentum of their biggest get-out-the-vote enticement.

And the average voter isn't smart enough to understand margins and (unpopular opinion) Democrats traditionally have not been skilled enough to explain it.

by Anonymousreply 93April 21, 2024 1:11 PM

Tough decision between two of my favorites, R88 and R90.

Jefferies should not take over unless he has the votes to eliminate the “one person” motion to vacate that McCarthy (not surprisingly) stupidly adopted. . The Dems will give him that (and a few other things) in order to get (and keep) control.

In addition to junk fees we’ve got next year’s budget and likely another round of funding for Ukraine, etc. coming due before the election on September 30th. Scary stuff.

But it would be politically helpful to see the “in charge” republicans melt, and shut down the government five weeks before the election. That would salt the earth for their defeat. (I suppose MTG would belatedly wake up after lots of finger pointing and they’d barely adopt a short term continuing resolution.)

My guess is that Dems will take the House (but likely lose the Senate?) when new members are sworn in on January 3rd 2025 so taking over now won’t gain us That much.

Hobson’s choice.

The nine incidents represent seven posts and reposts on Truth Social and two posts on Trump’s campaign website. He was fined $1,000 for each violation, must pay the fine by the close of business Friday and must remove the posts by 2:15 p.m. today.

Merchan also threatened incarceration if Trump willfully violates the gag order again.

If elected to a second term in the White House, Donald Trump intends to pursue policies that would address what he says is a “definite anti-white feeling” in America.

“If you look at the Biden Administration, they’re sort of against anybody depending on certain views," he says.

“They’re against Catholics. They’re against a lot of different people. I think there is a definite anti-white feeling in this country and that can’t be allowed either. I don’t think it would be a very tough thing to address, frankly,” Trump says. “But I think the laws are very unfair right now. And education is being very unfair, and it’s being stifled. But if you look right now, there’s absolutely a bias against white [people] and that’s a problem.”

His Face

Or, more specifically, his facial expressions. Let’s start with the pout. It’s his way of trying to look tough, but he can’t pull it off because he isn’t tough.

He saves it for those occasions when he scores a point against a perceived enemy — like getting the Mike Johnsons and Ron DeSantises of the world to come to Mar-a-Lago to kiss his ring, or on those alarming occasions when he gets away with breaking a norm (or a law) or, maybe even worse, when he gets an assist from an increasingly corrupt institution like the Supreme Court.

Together, the pout and the sneer perfectly encapsulate the tension that exists between his arrogant belief that he is utterly untouchable and his desperately fragile ego and unconscious sense that he is a weak, terrified little boy.

His Style of Speech

He just won’t stop talking. And the longer he speaks, the more he lapses into a stream of consciousness that defies logic or meaning. There is no nuance, no attempt to be coherent, no aspiration to eloquence.

Word Choice: Everything is always terrible or incredible. It is always like nothing you’ve ever seen. There are no shades of gray; only the black and white of hyperbole, because if it is in any way related to him or his enemies, it must be the best or the worst.

Asides and Non Sequiturs: He meanders without ever really getting to the point, and along the way he veers off onto a totally unrelated topic. He could be talking about nuclear weapons and then launch into a monologue about water pressure or lightbulbs while his supporters wait for a conclusion he never draws.

Repetition: When he wants to drive home a point, he doesn’t just repeat it once, he repeats it incessantly. He pounds it down. Repetition reinforces his message,even as it hides the lack of substance and factual information — and his brand of simple-minded patter makes it all the more effective. As Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda for Nazi Germany put it, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” In cognitive psychology, this is known as the “illusory truth effect.”

Rhetoric: He speaks down to the lowest common denominator and doesn’t hesitate to call on his followers to commit violence on his behalf, riling them up with promises to pay their lawyers or otherwise offering them immunity. It is the coward’s way, but he excels at it. And here lies his disturbing resemblance to cult leaders. They, too, traffic in simplistic tropes and make vague promises; they see themselves as unique, chosen, and, in some cases, divine; they create a clear division between their group (the “chosen” ones) and the out group (the “enemy” or “other”). Cult leaders dehumanize the other, portraying them as inferior or inhuman (“vermin”).

Sound familiar?

When you hear that voice, rambling, repetitive, and threatening, remember: it’s not empty noise — he’s preying on the vulnerability of his followers, who at this point seem almost incapable of listening to any voice but his.

When all is said and done, and obviously just getting through this year without wrecking the Republic is going to be a hell of a chore, but when all is said and done, we are going to have to ask ourselves about the presidency itself and whether we have gone too far in a monarchical direction. And I do not mean that as in any way a slam on Biden. Nothing wrong with Biden. But there is something very, very wrong with the presidency if we have reached the point where we are actually afraid that the wrong president can wreck the place.

The problem is two fold. Trump's actions as president are unprecedented, and congress which is supposed to be the guardrails for unconstitutional or criminal behavior by a president has one party giving him full sycophantic support.

by Anonymousreply 287May 2, 2024 2:11 AM

That is a great question r286, and I hope everyone has suggestions. Start by insisting that Congress get back to doing its real job of setting budgets, itself, on time. Lock them in a big room if you have to, and slowly let them starve until they come up with an ontime budget, the way they used to do with papal conclaves. No dicking around waiting for the White House to rescue them with a budget of its own cause Congress just can't be bothered to do shit about shit. I might not love the budget they come up with, but it would be much more constitutional than this weird hybrid we've all gotten used to.

I would also restore the independence of the Supreme Court, initially through impeachment. Most got there by lying to Congress to get through bogus hearings. Call them out on it, and stop with this deference policy. Congress was always supposed to be the number one branch. Act like it.

And finally, i would seriously consider detaching the Justice Department from the White House, not as a tradition, but as a rule. It should have long become something more like the Federal Reserve, because the truth is, as the Trump Justice Department showed, it is all too susceptible to becoming a criminal organization itself under the guidance of a truly corrupt president.

But honestly, I don't care if any of my suggestions prevail nearly as much as I think everybody needs to recognize that there is a serious problem and come up with their own ideas for retrenching the presidency, the way people at least tried to do after Nixon.

That is the question I am talking about, even if I am exhausting r291, maybe some of the rest of you might see the problem.

Part of the problem is that many of the things we believed to be laws were not. They were just traditions.

Also, propaganda outlets like Fux should be fined into oblivion for lying. They’ve brainwashed about 40% of the country with their lies.

Also, ANY religious place that tells you how to vote should be fined into oblivion and lose their tax exempt status. Period. Church, synagogue, mosque, temple, stone circle. If you want to get involved in politics, you LOSE your religious tax exempt status.

by Anonymousreply 306May 2, 2024 3:36 AM

The problem is multifaceted, FCI.

1. The Founding Fathers never envisioned two massive political parties. That binary arrangement strains their original design.

Madison envisioned smaller groups of “factions” coming together in differing combinations on different issues, reaching across their respective aisles, to create baring majority consensuses. Similar to what rarely happens now (e.g. many Democrats and some “somewhat sane” Republicans agreeing to join hands to save Mike Johnson (!) for passing a budget!).

2. Congress- the Article 1 body under the constitution - needs to stop abdicating its power to the Article 2 body - the president - because the job’s sometimes unpopular or “hard.” There’re too many “message” bills, that go nowhere; and too much ducking of what they are suppose to do.

Passing an on time budget has been mentioned. But, also, when was the last time Congress actually “declared war,” as is its specifically mandated, and exclusive, constitutional duty. It’s not like we haven’t had wars - Vietnam, Cambodia, Iraq, Afghanistan. It’s that Congress has “punted” its duty to the White House, because they don’t want to have to explain their actions at reelection time when things go badly.

3. We, as a country, have shirked our responsibility to provide our children with a decent social education and/or prepare them to understand how the government they will someday lead should operate.

When women could barely work outside the home - virtually all “breadwinners” were male - one of the few jobs the best and brightest of women could get was to be a teacher. Those brilliant women taught our parents.

Fortunately, discrimination against women becoming doctors, astronauts, Supreme Court justices, etc. fell. But society didn’t recognize that the quality of teaching would decline too, if we didn’t raise taxes sufficiently to raise the pay of teachers so as to attract equally brilliant replacements (men and women) into the profession. While there are still some good, dedicated teachers; many of the best went elsewhere. The average quality declined, and the voice of other information sources - such as shallow media - took on more of the education role. We’re living the result.

All that said, we still need to kick the aberrant, orange’s ass.

[bold]Truth Social keeps shrinking despite the Trump trial and looming election[/bold]

Former President Donald Trump hit the jackpot this spring when his social media company finally went public.

Even though Trump Media & Technology Group (DJT) generates very little revenue, investors are assigning an eye-popping valuation north of $9 billion to the company. Trump’s dominant stake in Trump Media is now valued at nearly $6 billion.

Yet new data shows its main product — the conservative-friendly social network Truth Social — remains a very tiny player in its industry, and it’s getting even smaller.

Truth Social’s average number of daily active US users on iOS and Android dropped by 19% year over year in April to about 113,000, according to data shared exclusively with CNN from Similarweb, a data intelligence company.

The Similarweb data, which captures the first 29 days of April, showed that the average number of users dipped 4% month over month. That drop comes despite the considerable attention received by the ongoing Trump criminal trial and the growing focus on the US presidential election....

Important note: Her breakdown occurred just before Trump’s lawyer was going to cross examine. It looks like she unwittingly (?) may have given her testimony to the prosecution more weight.

Joyce: Witnesses cry or get emotional on the stand for a lot of different reasons. But here, given Hope Hick's relationship with Trump, it suggests that because she's under oath, she's had to reveal facts she'd rather have left unsaid & she's concerned she's damaged Trump.

George: A witness’s demeanor while testifying is evidence. Hope Hicks’s demeanor—her obvious emotional distress—provides brutally damaging evidence against Trump.

Ok, hear me out.

If he pleads to some of the alleged offenses, the prosecutor may recommend stayed jail to probation? And fines?

That frees up that asshole to go on with his moronic campaign rallies and you know damn good and well his stupid supporters don't care if he pled out.

Trump would have to risk that Merchan would adopt sentencing recommendations for stayed jail time and probation.

Anderson Cooper’s 7 member CNN panel following each DJT trial day is not something I will continue to watch. On the left far end, a panelist was rotated in and out. One was the elder courtroom sketch artist that was seen on multiple CNN shows. She’s known Trump for decades and doesn’t hide her fondness of him. On an earlier show, she spoke about Trump being a handsome man and how she sketched a tender moment between Donald and Eric in the courtroom. The majority of the panel was delivering pro-Trump rhetoric, and they spent inordinate amount of time praising Hope Hick’s honesty for her affection for Trump.

CNN obviously wants DJT acquitted and have that horse race ongoing. Elie Honig has trended pro-Trump for months. What a disappointment he has become.

Why have a trial at all? The culpability is obvious:

"Donald Trump’s valet told investigators before the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago in 2022 that he randomly chose boxes of documents to return to the National Archives and Trump himself directed that dozens more boxes located at the resort wouldn’t be returned, according to recently unsealed court filings.

The filings reviewed by CNN shed new light on the critical role that Walt Nauta, now Trump’s co-defendant in the classified documents case, played in giving the FBI justification to execute the search warrant on the former president’s Florida resort.

Nauta testified to a grand jury two months before the August 2022 search about boxes he took from Mar-a-Lago’s storage room in January 2022."

My understanding about the legal concern is that by bringing up unsavory details unrelated to the case being charged there might be grounds for a mistrial like with Harvey Weinstein. That said l think in the Weinstein case the unsavory details were of the same nature as the charges whereas these are creepy, but a different matter, and the judge will most likely request that jury not consider them in deliberations.

[bold]What Trump promised oil CEOs as he asked them to steer $1 billion to his campaign[/bold]

As Donald Trump sat with some of the country’s top oil executives at his Mar-a-Lago Club last month, one executive complained about how they continued to face burdensome environmental regulations despite spending $400 million to lobby the Biden administration in the last year.

Trump’s response stunned several of the executives in the room overlooking the ocean: You all are wealthy enough, he said, that you should raise $1 billion to return me to the White House. At the dinner, he vowed to immediately reverse dozens of President Biden’s environmental rules and policies and stop new ones from being enacted, according to people with knowledge of the meeting, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a private conversation.

Giving $1 billion would be a “deal,” Trump said, because of the taxation and regulation they would avoid thanks to him, according to the people.

Trump’s remarkably blunt and transactional pitch reveals how the former president is targeting the oil industry to finance his reelection bid. At the same time, he has turned to the industry to help shape his environmental agenda for a second term, including the rollbacks of some of Biden’s signature achievements on clean energy and electric vehicles.

The contrast between the two candidates on climate policy could not be more stark. Biden has called global warming an “existential threat,” and over the last three years, his administration has finalized 100 new environmental regulations aimed at cutting air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, restricting toxic chemicals, and conserving public lands and waters. In comparison, Trump has called climate change a “hoax,” and his administration weakened or wiped out more than 125 environmental rules and policies over four years.

In recent months, the Biden administration has raced to overturn Trump’s environmental actions and issue new ones before the November election. So far, Biden officials have overturned 27 Trump actions affecting the fossil fuel industry and completed 23 new actions affecting the sector, according to a Washington Post analysis. The Interior Department, for instance, recently blocked future oil drilling across 13 million acres of the Alaskan Arctic.

Despite the oil industry’s complaints about Biden’s policies, the United States is now producing more oil than any country ever has, pumping nearly 13 million barrels per day on average last year. ExxonMobil and Chevron, the largest U.S. energy companies, reported their biggest annual profits in a decade last year....

Trump arrives in courtroom

Former President Trump has arrived in court, trailed by his usual entourage of lawyers, aides and Secret Service. Among them was Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.).

Before entering the courtroom, Trump chatted in the doorway with Scott and one of his attorneys. A reporter in the courtroom stood and gave the former president a thumbs up, before a court officer chided him.

Prosecutors with the Manhattan district attorney’s office arrived shortly after 9:15 a.m., chatting among themselves.

The judge has also taken the bench and proceedings are underway.

[bold]There's A GOP Plan For An Execution Spree If Trump Wins The White House[/bold]

During the final six months of Donald Trump’s presidency, his administration carried out an unprecedented execution spree, killing 13 people on federal death row and ending a 17-year de facto federal execution moratorium.

Shortly after Joe Biden entered the White House, the Justice Department formally reinstated the federal execution moratorium and announced a sweeping policy review. But despite Biden’s campaign promise to work to end the federal death penalty, there has been little progress toward that goal.

Meanwhile, Trump, the GOP’s presumptive 2024 presidential nominee, has openly fantasized about executing drug dealers and human traffickers. He reportedly suggested that officials who leak information to the press should be executed, too. And behind the scenes, there’s a team of pro-Trump conservatives who are pushing for a second Trump term that involves even more state-sponsored killing than the first....

[bold]Thomas says critics are pushing ‘nastiness’ and calls Washington a ‘hideous place’[/bold]

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told attendees at a judicial conference Friday that he and his wife have faced “nastiness” and “lies” over the last several years and decried Washington, D.C., as a “hideous place.”

Thomas spoke at a conference attended by judges, attorneys and other court personnel in the 11th Circuit Judicial Conference, which hears federal cases from Alabama, Florida and Georgia. He made the comments pushing back on his critics in response to a question about working in a world that seems meanspirited.

“I think there’s challenges to that. We’re in a world and we — certainly my wife and I the last two or three years it’s been — just the nastiness and the lies, it’s just incredible,” Thomas said.

“But you have some choices. You don’t get to prevent people from doing horrible things or saying horrible things. But one you have to understand and accept the fact that they can’t change you unless you permit that,” Thomas said.

Thomas has faced criticisms that he took accepted luxury trips from a GOP donor without reporting them. Thomas last year maintained that he didn’t have to report the trips paid for by one of “our dearest friends.” His wife, conservative activist Ginni Thomas has faced criticism for using her Facebook page to amplify unsubstantiated claims of corruption by President Joe Biden, a Democrat....

That was the reason given by multiple legal experts including the NYT. The McDougal transaction was legal and a catch & kill operation carried out by Pecker. The conspiracy behind it had a prior meeting with Pecker, Cohen. and Trump. Pecker bought the McDougal story. She would have nothing to add other than she received the money from Pecker not to sell her story to anyone else. Pecker testified what he did. McDougal can only confirm the months-long adulterous affair with Trump. That’s already known to the jury. McDougal had no role in the hush funds that were allegedly transacted illegally and violated campaign finance laws.

Miss Farrow!:

"In February 2018, with Trump already elected as president, The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow wrote about the affair and AMI's purchase of the story, largely corroborating the 2016 Wall Street Journal report, except that the affair had gone on for nine months. The story was based on McDougal's handwritten memoirs of the affair, which McDougal's friend passed to Farrow. McDougal confirmed to Farrow that she had written the memoirs. Farrow quotes the memoirs as stating that McDougal first met Trump in June 2006 at a party hosted by Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion. Trump kept in contact with McDougal, and they had sex on the first date. She said she met members of his family and he promised to buy her an apartment in New York. To avoid "paper trails", Trump had McDougal pay for flight and hotel expenses when she flew to meet him, then he reimbursed her. McDougal ended the affair in April 2007 because she felt guilty about sleeping with a married man; she was also offended by derogatory comments he made about her mother and a Black man who was dating a female acquaintance of his.

McDougal declined to discuss details of the alleged affair due to her agreement with AMI, but she told Farrow that she regretted signing that agreement, saying, "It took my rights away... I don't know what I'm allowed to talk about. I'm afraid to even mention his name." Farrow also wrote that Pecker has a "favorite tactic" of buying "a story in order to bury it". AMI said it did not publish McDougal's story as it was not credible, and a spokesperson for the White House denied the affair."
