Gaetz Gets Burned Badly by Rep. Johnson


Trump hosted conspiracy theorists at WH days before call to Zelensky

Any questions why he was babbling about Crowdstrike? https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/07/trump-social-media-summit-far-right

El Paso and the Gamification of Terrorism


...In the wake of the Christchurch shooting I published my first Bellingcat article about 8chan. I was interviewed by numerous media agencies about the website, and I warned all of them that additional attacks would follow – every month or two – until something was done. This prediction has proven accurate. Until law enforcement, and the media, treat these shooters as part of a terrorist movement no less organized, or deadly, than ISIS or Al Qaeda, the violence will continue. There will be more killers, more gleeful celebration of body counts on 8chan, and more bloody attempts to beat the last killer’s “high score”.

El Paso Shooter lived about 1mile from my home

Just a bit freaked out. My family is multi-racial and we have been many times to the closest Walmart to his home. We shop there alot for certain items.

He also attended my daughters' college at the same time. They did not know him.

Not been this creeped out since I found at we were at the mall that was attacked by terrorists in Nairobi on a day they did a walkthrough (Christmas Eve) before the actual attack.

Why Not Double Impeach?

Hear me out:

Continue investigating and impeach soon but with only some of the charges.

If the Senate rejects, it becomes a campaign issue to change the Senate.

If Trump is still in office, second impeachment with stronger charges under the new Congress.

If Pelosi is so scared of the politics, this could work as an alternative approach.

Rain, by WWI Poet Edward Thomas

Rain, midnight rain, nothing but the wild rain
On this bleak hut, and solitude, and me
Remembering again that I shall die
And neither hear the rain nor give it thanks
For washing me cleaner than I have been
Since I was born into solitude.
Blessed are the dead that the rain rains upon:
But here I pray that none whom once I loved
Is dying tonight or lying still awake
Solitary, listening to the rain,
Either in pain or thus in sympathy
Helpless among the living and the dead,
Like a cold water among broken reeds,
Myriads of broken reeds all still and stiff,
Like me who have no love which this wild rain
Has not dissolved except the love of death,
If love it be towards what is perfect and
Cannot, the tempest tells me, disappoint.

-And yes, he died in those fields...

Pelosi needs to make it clear: touch Mueller, impeachment starts in January

Time to stare the aged orang down.

Impeachment would insure that the full investigation comes out at trial in the Senate, then dare Senators to vote for Trump.

Bigfoot Erotica Writer Republican Goes to Congress (not the Onion)

Meanwhile, from the WTF file:

Republican Denver Riggleman — a man who once wrote a book titled Mating Habits of Bigfoot and Why Women Want Him — just beat out Democratic challenger Leslie Cockburn (Olivia Wilde’s mom) for the U.S. House of Representatives in Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District seat. The district has historically voted Republican. In what has to be the strangest race in the midterms, Riggelman beat Cockburn by seven points, according to the New York Times... https://www.thecut.com/2018/11/denver-riggleman-wins-his-congressional-race-virginia-midterms.html?utm_source=fb&utm_campaign=nym&utm_medium=s1&fbclid=IwAR1P_Szs6w8nVNLtGATlPoevQQkoycHJgzsxMTOPVzRx81CkGjauTR9g5bE
