But they're guaranteed to raise the tax

TK,

I REALLY want you to listen to this interview with Steve Bannon. It's 2 hours and 26 minutes and gives a LOT of background on both the campaign and transition. His contempt for the stupid people in government is palpable.

He talks about the financial crisis in 2007, and how it led to the election of Donald Trump,the Billy Bush tape, evil Paul Ryan (we were right about him)etc. The campaign was a "fly by the seat of your pants" operation.

It's absolutely fascinating. Wait til you hear the part where they have Paula Jones, Juanita Broderick, and some others who were going to go after Hillary at the debate for supporting Bill and were loaded for bear!

I am not kidding. You will love listening to this!

Others will like it, too, but you especially.

TK, "Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States:"

Don’t believe Trump could run.

Threadkiller

Ahhh, thanks SBW.

anonamom

So, they are admitting they impeached without evidence of a crime.
Not that that matters.

henry

sbw, then explain the impeached judge now heading a House Co0mmittee.

Maybe Clarence Thomas and The SCOTUS Players could evade the topic like they did with Article II Eligibility.

Porchlight

Peter Navarro was on Brian Kilmeade singing Trump's praises. There are apparently 400 attendees for the signing today in the East Wing and 100 plus on the waiting list. Hottest ticket in town.

NYT coverage surprisingly positive. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/15/business/economy/trump-signs-china-trade.html

Porchlight

henry, Hastings was not convicted and the Senate did not vote to remove him from office.

https://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/common/briefing/Impeachment_Hastings.htm

Threadkiller

Interesting, henry. We would have to find the “judgement” handed down on that judge. The clause that SBW posted sets the limits of the judgement, the way I read it, not the mandatory judgement.

Threadkiller

Thanks, porch.

Porchlight

Yes, the barring from future office must be by Senate vote - didn't happen in Hastings' case. Impeachment by House doesn't trigger that clause.

MissMarple2

sbwaters,

Looking at that crowd last night, I believe that if they try to remove him, there will be a massive, angry mob convene on Capitol Hill.

I am not exaggerating. I really believe GOP senators voting for conviction would be in peril.

It is unconscionable to me that the man that Bannon describes in that interview, who referred to working class and evangelical voters as "my people", who risked everything and sacrificed his privacy and lifestyle to save this country, would be turned out by that bunch of unappealing dimwits led by Pelosi.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

I thank TM for the new thread. Also, I'd love to hear his take on this story:
http://bejohngalt.com/2020/01/reunification/

There's a proposal to have a vote so that some VA 2nd Amendment sanctuary counties can leave VA and join WV.
As one perceptive commenter states:

"If by some twist of fate Virginia dissolved, the dam would have been busted to entertain border shifting all over the country. People are already doing it via UHaul. Some folks are going to start saying “its cheaper to move a border than move a house.”"

Jim,

I really have to credit my local friend Jan on that. EVERY time I mention Warren she goes off on her outfits.

Jan and I sold high-end furniture at a store here. Part of our training was how to dress professionally and appropriately.

Warren doesn't dress well enough to sell a sofa in Greenwood, Indiana. She can NEVER be president. Period.

Dave (in MA)

Don't all the big commies basically wear the same thing every day?

JM Hanes

Did the House vote on the material to be added to the Impeachment articles?

Porchlight

Warren wears a black top and pants with either a red or a blue blazer/sweater thing over it. Every day, as far as I can tell.

I'm all for uniform dressing (it makes life easier) but a candidate probably can't get away with it.

As far as her skincare routine (using cold cream only and not washing with soap or cleanser) I can't ding it as her skin does look great. And I've heard of that before. Cold cream is a cleanser of sorts.

henry

Cold cream is a cleanser of sorts.

So is turpentine. And turpentine kills germs.

Porchlight

Not to be complimenting Warren but it obviously works for her. If you have a dry skin type especially.

AUSA: have just docketed a letter about this. SDNY learned only late Tuesday afternoon that CDCA got an arrest warrant for pretrial release violations.


AUSA: We now have the documents from CDCA. Allegation is that Avenatti engaged in fraud, structuring, money laundering, and other financial crimes while on release. SDNY had no role in investigating and seeking warrant. [Sounds annoyed.]

I hate to tell you guys this but not bathing any part of oneself is a growing movement apparently going mainstream.
The argument is that once the natural flora and fauna is reestablished on one's epidermis one is not nearly so olfactorily nauseating as one might suppose.
I question that.

henry

apparently a hearing ongoing, thread at link with live updates:

Avenatti's attorney: I have no funds in my account to pay vendors and experts, so in light of these CDCA allegations, I don't know how these defense functions can be paid for. "I can't really function at this point without knowing."

Stu has an interesting thread,

https://twitter.com/STUinSD/status/1217463622659690496

He is wondering where all of Bernie's money comes from.

rse

To clarify from the previous thread experiences, including via virtual reality digital learning masquerading as digital "textbooks" to go back to a discussion porch and I had a while back create neural effects especially when repeated.

Changed physiology, especially intended, is generated by a social science--education pedagogy and curriculum- but it has a hard science effect that again has nothing to do with enzymes.

I am guessing NSF and NIH are funding the enzyme version, but I know they are funding the behavioral science version I am talking about. They also call Mind, Brain, and Education a science because of the planned and observed neural effects. The word permeates the literature involving the links between education and neuroscience.

henry

rse, they could be honest and call it brainwashing, but that would give away their plans.

rse

The behavioral science version is not "out there," but involves mainstream research and is frequently also tied to med schools. The Super Better book involved Penn med if you look at the footnotes and acknowledgments page.

There it is folks. Pelosi admitted this is "an impeachment that will last forever."

It's all Dems care about. They never want it to end.

They're using Congress to get back at @realDonaldTrump for winning in 2016 and to try to stop him from winning in 2020. Nothing else.

JM Hanes

"She wears the same black outfit with a sweater-jacket hanging over it every single day."

It's not even a sweater "jacket. " It's a limp sweater. If it were the least bit stylish folks might cut her a break, but it looks like she just throws on whatever is hanging on the back of the chair, when she gets up. She looks like somebody called Marge, who's filling in at the grocery store cash register for the girl who called in sick.

With apologies to anyone named Marge.

Deplorable D

Actually, I am not sure that impeachment does disqualify one from running for the Presidency. I am not sure, but I believe that the Presidency is not an office, but an elected position. This had some bearing on the business with the emoluments clause of the Constitution, I am fairly certain. After all, the Constitution lays out the qualifications to run for president, and it doesn't say "must not be impeached," which I think they would have included at that point just to emphasize it.

Draft editorial:

Headline: Thoughts on a trumped up trial

Unfortunately, according to the Constitution, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, and her committee chairmen Adam Schiff and Jerold Nadler, cannot be impeached for attempting to redefine ordinary presidential business as a high crime and misdemeanor. The House of Representatives can censure or expel them, and should.

They betrayed the Constitution, discredited the House, papered over their own congressional rule-breaking and malfeasance, tolerated legal double standards, abused the Executive Branch, undercut foreign policy, alleged Separation of Powers to be a crime, misused the press, ran roughshod over the rule of law, and lie continually to the American people. They have undermined the Democratic Party.

On the basis of the testimony so far revealed — the House under Pelosi is still hiding the testimony of Inspector General Michael Atkinson — President Trump has broken no law. But he sure has stepped on the toes of the powerful


Trump was elected to drain the swamp. Whatever decision by the Senate on the contrived, non-crime impeachment charges, Trump will have won.

He revealed what a swamp Washington is. He exposed self-serving deceit on both sides of the Congressional aisles. He exposed rot in the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA, the State Department, the IRS, the FISA courts, and other federal agencies. He revealed national media willing to be used and abused by officials.

Trump exposed how political parties, unanticipated by our Constitution in the first years of our Republic, corrupted political institutions. The original Democratic Republican Party hoped to undermine Alexander Hamilton and his ideas. Great but flawed politicians like Thomas Jefferson who founded the party did not foresee how parties would poison our unique and beautiful American political system.

They passed on to us the possibility of thuggish abuse by the Democrat House. Representatives are cajoled and threatened to cave to the party. Parties have come to run politics with the firm hand of criminal mobs. They practice justice of one sort for them and quite another for the rest of us.

National media overlooks their double standards. Compare Andrew McCabe’s pass for lying to the ongoing hounding of Michael Flynn. Look at ignoring Hillary Clinton’s emails and Uranium One. Look at Vice President Joe Biden’s billion dollar threat to Ukraine if they didn’t stop investigating his son.


Trump? The country is better for having elected him. The powerful in Washington are engaged in a last ditch, futile effort to protect their fiefdoms.

Win or lose, Trump has begun a Herculean effort to drain Washington’s Augean Stables that will not end with impeachment.

MissMarple2

sbwaters,

I couldn't care less what the hell she wears, I'm more worried about having to listen to that wheezing scold all the time while she wrecks the country. It's bad enough the idiots in this state decided it was a good idea to put her in the Senate.

Not that this is new, or news to anyone here, but Insty linked to the official report on the pedophilia and rape gangs in Manchester run by Pakistani immigrants and utterly ignored by law enforcement and politicians:

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/grooming-gangs-sex-abuse-manchester-police-exploitation-asian-a9283146.html

I honestly don't think it's an overstatement to say that every single public employee and elected official named in the report should be charged as an accessory to thousands of counts of kidnapping, rape, child abuse and God only knows what else, tried, convicted, and executed.

One more point the education learning theories being financed are generally written by biology profs or ones working together with cognitive scientists. I may not have known the enzyme version of the word but all the biology and hard science profs writing these books that are implemented as creating a Positive School Climate or effective, brain-based learning would.

I am very glad Dr J piped up as well as a'mom. This is unlikely to be a matter of carelessness. The brainwashing as henry called it gets hidden because most hard science types will assume it means enzyme change and not designed changes to the student's central nervous system with desired permanent effects.

Listening to an NPR piece on Michigan.

No early voting (other than the old fashioned kind.)

Trump won by less than 11,000 votes.

Five times as many people voted third party in 2016 as 2012--250K. Way less people voting D (they didn't vote at all) than in 2012. (They didn't come out to vote HRC as they did BO.)

75 K left the presidential choice EMPTY--did not vote for president, but DID VOTE! Stood in line that day, but voted NEITHER OF ABOVE.

I'm not calling that state for anybody in 2020.

And 2020 isn't going to be a rerun of 2016. They voted in a D governor to replace eight years of R, and two Congressional districts flipped after being long-time R.
