Been Watching Showtimes 'I'm Dying Up Here' And....

Brad Garrett deserves an 'Emmy' for his performance in his role. He's just captivating. Totally 180 from Raymond. I never realized what a great actor he is.

I Had A Funny Thought When Watching Avenatti On Lawrence Just Now.....

Avenatti said Ghouliani is a joke of a lawyer - with all the lawyers in the country - that's the best that Trump can get.

I envisioned Trump watching Avenatti on Lawrence's program and saying to his minions - 'get me Avenatti - I want him as my lawyer.

Trump Didn't Write These Tweets This A.M.....

Check this out: '...he could have picked somebody else' instead of 'I could have picked somebody else'.

My guess is somehow Ghoulani has his hands on these.

Will The Roseanne Show Go The Way Of Last Man Standing And Tim Allen?....

Tim Allen's Last Mad Standing is coming back to the Fox.

Check out this link:

Allen always used to take shots at Obama which upset me when I watched the show. What kept me watching was it was always one of his daughters that would put him in his place and counter his shots to Obama and the Dems.

I believe that his show that ran for 6 seasons was cancelled because of Allen's political leanings and mouth. He will find a good new home with Fox.

I'm wondering if the Roseanne show will go that route as well. However, what I'm hearing from some of the cast members in their disgust with Roseanne and her tweet - I don't think many of the cast would follow her if given the opportunity. They are through with Roseanne.

Does Anybody Know What Prompted Roseanne's Tweet About Jarrett In The First Place?.....

Did she have some kind of run-in with her or was she just thinking she was making a funny?

Here's What I Said Here On DU The Day Roseanne's Ratings Came In On The 1st Show.....

We should wait for subsequent episodes to see if it holds its audience. My guess is that it will trail off because of Roseanne's politics and mouth. She's already put her foot in it with her Nazi comment of David Hogg. Trump didn't help her ratings for taking credit for the ratings of that show either.

It was only a matter of time that she'd shoot herself in the foot.

Good Riddance!!!!!


This is what Trump considers before he makes a decision. WWHD = What Would Hitler Do

Where Is Ali Velshi?....

Is he on assignment? Is he on vacation? I miss him.

Remember Back In The Bush Admin - The Setting Up Of An Office Of Disinformation......

They called it the Office of Strategic Influence.

The intent of this office was:

The Office of Strategic Influence, or OSI, was a department created by the United States Department of Defense on October 30, 2001, to support the War on Terrorism through psychological operations in targeted countries, which did not include the United States because the Pentagon is barred from PSYOPs in the U.S.

Here is a link to a story about that office: http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/pentagon-establishes-new-office-of-disinformation-1.318952

Here is a line from this story: There is another practical reason why the U.S. may be very careful not to plant false stories abroad. Some of them may be picked up by U.S. media. And while it's perfectly legal for the U.S. government to lie to other countries, it is illegal for it to lie to Americans.

From Wikipedia here is the timeline of how this played out:

February 19, 2002: Major US news organizations report that the Department of Defense had set up the Office of Strategic Influence. These reports quote an unnamed official, who is discussing the advantages and dangers in setting up such an office.

February 20, 2002: After discussions on the purpose of the Office in the US media, Douglas Feith, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, assures the public in an interview that Defense Department officials will not undermine the credibility of US institutions by lying to the public, and states that the exact mandate of the office is under review.

February 26, 2002: Rumsfeld announces the decision by Douglas Feith to close the Office of Strategic Influence.

November 18, 2002: Rumsfeld states in a press briefing that the Office of Strategic Influence was closed down only in name, that the activities of the office still continue.


And then there was the office of strategic influence. You may recall that. And 'oh my goodness gracious isn't that terrible, Henny Penny the sky is going to fall.' I went down that next day and said fine, if you want to savage this thing fine I'll give you the corpse. There's the name. You can have the name, but I'm gonna keep doing every single thing that needs to be done and I have.

I'm wondering if this is what is going on and what we are experiencing today - but instead of spreading lies and disinformation to foreign lands - it has been turned around and is being used on the American People - through Trump.

This morning I came across this post here at DU:

Trump and his people keep talking about a 'deep state' only he turns it around and says it is a Democratic plot. Again - they blame these things on the Dems - when in reality - it appears that it is Trump and the Repug Party that is actually doing this.

Trump's tweet storm today - jogged my memory of this OSI group that was established in BushCo times. I even question now if Trump's tweet storm today was even written by him or like we were told last week that he has ghost writers doing his tweets complete with mispellings to make it look Trumpian.

What the hell is really going on in this country. By the day - I get more and more worried as to where all this will lead.

Is There Somewhere On The Internet Where Someone Is Keeping Record Of All Of Trumps.....

reversing of Obama's accomplishments as well as all the negative things Trump has done and is doing to make this country unsafer, adjusting the judicial branch to a more conservative group and reducing the U.S. status in the world for decades to come.

I think this list should include things like losing track of the immigrant children being taken away from their families; the yellow bracelets; JCE taking the rosary's away; etc. Include things like his fits and starts on tariffs; reduction of fuel standards for the automakers; the harm to our environment; etc

Essentially all those negative things that Trump has thrust upon us since he took office.

And that should include all the Russian collusion suspicions. All the indictments in his minions. All the money laundering. The philandering with women. The pay for play that benefits his own pocket. His hypocritical ways. His treatment of LGBT, women, immigrants, elderly, etc`His so-called tax bill that benefited the rich and the corporations at the American People's expense. This will impact our children and grandchildren for decades to come.

Again - though Trump is the point person - the Repug Party supported him the whole way through.

I would like to have such a list to use as I urge people to GOTV in Nov 2018.

I'm sure - he'll be touting all his fake accomplishments and we need something to counteract this.

If we don't have a list like this - can we at DU put something like this together and make it available to all Democrats all around the country?
