My warmest condolences to the family and many friends of Congressman Elijah Cummings. I got to see first hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader. His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace!

Porchlight

Ugh. Clicked on AB's Twitter link (which was good) and saw the hashtags assigned to Cummings's death. #RIPSir, #RestInPower, #RestInPeaceAndPower.

Who thinks up this astroturf shit? No wonder they sit on the news - they need time to work out the social media angle.

Nancy will probably claim that she and Steny looked lost and brain dead in the WH meeting yesterday because they were grieving in advance for dear Elijah.

Threadkiller

Cheers to Catherine Engelbrecht. This has to be a good day for her.

You beat me to it, CH. My exact 1st thought when I heard that the grease filled bastard croaked. His defense for the shameful way he threatened Engelbrecht was "my momma is still alive and she knows I wouldn't do that." I hope she is still alive to see her dead son now.

Darryl Issahole must be beside himself wondering if he will get a new Dem crank to suck, or if they had the courtesy to make a mold of Cummings tiny pecker, should he be allowed to represent destroy the last conservative district in San Diego.

The uniparty and their Consent Decree was exposed by Engelbrecht and they punished her. I have no sympathy for these people. If this truly was a representative government that expressed the wishes of the people, Cummings would be dropped through the open lid of renewable energy shit digester and congress would piss out 200 gallons of representative urine on his fat-back forehead. Then they would burn the fucking digester until all that was left was a bastard shaped silhouette of soot.

Don't forget Treytor Gowdy's role in protecting the deep state, TK, making sure Cummings fat ass had enough cushions to elevate his Johnson for the perfect Issa angle for fellatio.

The GOP had a perfect opportunity to get broad based support in fighting the IRS abuses, a Stasi-level villain that everyone hates. And they completely whiffed.

This is part of the reason they got DJT stuffed down their pencil necks. And he's only Step 1, bitches.

From JimCA's link:

“An isolationist United States is destabilizing around the world,” Bush said, according to the Washington Post‘s Josh Rogin. “We are becoming isolationist and that’s dangerous for the sake of peace.”

If that's what he thinks, then maybe he should have defended his policies and pushed back against all the "he lied to get us into a war" crap from the Democrats and the MSM after 2004.

And maybe he should have spoken up at some point between 2009-2016 while Obama was systematically dismantling all the things our military did manage to accomplish during Bush's presidency, instead of sitting on his hands for 8 years.

He had all the opportunity in the world to speak out, and he couldn't be bothered, so I really can't see why I should listen to one word he has to say now.

He married the Morning Homewreckers, ostensibly by having them place their hands on the collected works of De Sade, so he's something fake like Shakedown Jackson.

They know what his district looks like, and to the extent they report on it, they blame republicans even though Democrats have run Baltimore for generations.

Cummings and his pals will never be blamed for the incredible, generational, probably unrecoverable harm they’ve done.

I'm not a huge fan of the PowerLine podcast but the one with a book review of Age Of Iron is good.
It includes an interesting discussion of Trump's foreign policy (before all the Syria news). His lack of enthusiasm for Endless War and nation building is detailed.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Will be interested to learn more about the "BrExit deal" proposal.
Is it one last attempt to finesse the issue?

Some commenters are positive. Others say it's a deal former PM May could have had a couple years ago.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Well this clears the fog a bit.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage slammed Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Brexit deal with the European Union.

Farage told FOX Business' Stuart Varney the House of Commons should reject the new agreement Johnson has negotiated with the EU because it is an amended version of former Prime Minister Theresa May's proposed treaty, which was rejected three times by the U.K. Parliament.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Ah. But heres another more detailed view by someone who read the proposed new BrExit deal before commenting.
https://youtu.be/8YrjZ9Q5ipg

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

You have to distrust stats but there is SOME truth here.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

I didn't know this. Trump turns over profits from foreign guests to the US Treasury in order to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2019/10/trump-wont-profit-from-g-7.html
Not mentioned in the stories about the G-7 is that President Trump gives all profits from foreigners at his hotels back to the federal government.

The Associated Press reported on February 25, 2019, "President Donald Trump’s company said on Monday that it donated nearly $200,000 to the U.S. Treasury to make good on its promise two years ago to hand over profits from foreign governments using its properties.

"The Trump Organization said a check for $191,538 sent to Treasury represents profits from embassy parties, hotel stays and other foreign government spending at its Washington hotel and other properties last year. The voluntary donation is up from $151,470 sent a year ago to cover the president’s first calendar year in office.

"Trump announced the donation plan before his inauguration two years ago in response to criticism that in refusing to sell off his business, people would suspect his decisions in office would be influenced by spending at his properties and not necessarily reflect the public interest."
