This shutdown is not about a wall. It's not about security. It's not even about the budget.

It's about how long Mitch McConnell wants to let Ann Coulter be president and Rush Limbaugh be the Senate Majority Leader.


MLK re: Walls...

Do u find it depressing?
Yes, it symbolizes the division of man kind.
Have u ever seen anything so disastrous?
Not really, certainly the divisions continue to exist but when it symbolized an actual wall it becomes very depressing.

Krugman Sums It All Up in 4 Tweets

“A thought about where we are as a nation: We're living in the age of the unsurprising revelation. Is there anyone who doesn't already believe that Trump-Putin-treason is a real thing? Even Trump loyalists surely know it's true, they just think it's an OK price for the racism 1/

The question instead is when and whether the evidence will become so dramatic, so blatant, that Trump's defenders won't feel able to keep pretending they don't know. That is, it's not really about what we learn but about how it plays 2/

Think of the Steve King story as a dress rehearsal. Everyone knew what he was, and has for years. Somehow, though, we reached a tipping point where GOP leaders felt they had to say "We're shocked, shocked to find open racism going on in our party!" 3/

I don't know if we'll ever reach that sort of tipping point with Trump. But even if we do, remember: they've known all along, but were willing to sell out America as long as it was convenient 4/”


Charles Pierce: There Is No More Loathsome Creature Walking Our Political Landscape Than McConnell

There Is No More Loathsome Creature Walking Our Political Landscape Than Mitch McConnell
Yes, that includes the jumped-up real-estate crook in the White House.

There simply is no more loathsome creature walking the political landscape than the Majority Leader of the United States Senate. You have to go back to McCarthy or McCarran to find a Senate leader who did so much damage to democratic norms and principles than this yokel from Kentucky. Trump is bad enough, but he's just a jumped-up real-estate crook who's in over his head. McConnell is a career politician who knows full well what he's doing to democratic government and is doing it anyway because it gives him power, and it gives the rest of us a wingnut federal judiciary for the next 30 years. There is nothing that this president* can do that threatens McConnell's power as much as it threatens the survival of the republic, and that's where we are.



Kellyanne Conway's husband tweets projection showing Donald Trump losing 2020 in 27 point blowout

He retweeted a New York Daily News story with the text, “About 57% of registered voters said they will ‘definitely vote against’ Trump in 2020, according to a new poll.”

The PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist poll found only 30 percent of voters are planning to vote for Trump, while 57 percent will “definitely vote against” the president.

The poll also found Republicans are split about a primary challenge to Trump, with 44 percent of Republicans wanting a challenge, while 45 percent are opposed.

Laurence Tribe: Pelosi should've gone the rest of the way & invited Limbaugh & Coulter


When Trump says the polls are "rigged," he knows whereof he speaks

Breaking: In CNN Exclusive, Cohen confirms WSJ story and directly implicates the President: “What I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of Donald J. Trump. I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn’t deserve it”


This form of false flagging by Cohen on behalf of Trump campaign needs to be addressed before 2020, or our elections are going to continue to devolve, with psychological attacks becoming the norm.

In case you can't click through the paywall, the man Michael Cohen paid to rig early polls is John Gauger who owns RedFinch Solutions LLC and is chief information officer at @LibertyU, where @JerryFalwellJr- slimeball evangelical leader and fervent Trump supporter- is president. https://twitter.com/justinhendrix/status/1085880606918103041
