About Me

A child of the 60\\\'s, a lifelong Democrat and a sense that our elected officials , especially the President, set the tone of civility in our great country. I worked on JFK\\\'s campaign and on Barack Obama\\\'s (twice). High School Class of 1963 I was moved by MLK\\\'s march on Washington, and to see that go full circle and have Mr. Obama for President is quite gratifying. When I see remnants of the John Birch society still quite active in the Tea Party it strengthens my beliefs and support of the Democratic Party.

If Pence is unable to serve----Joe Biden could be in the White House before the election

Nancy could step down temporally---the House appoints Biden Speaker---he assumes the Presidency-appoints Harris as his VP--Nancy gets reelected to Speaker ---EZPZ-------and this is what might happen --and AOC could be appointed to SCOTUS now---(never mind that she is not qualified ----she is a lot better than Kavanaugh---and you don't have to have a law degree to be on SCOTUS---if there are that many GOP Senators sick and unable to serve she could win --fewer headaches

The Constitution does not require the speaker to be an incumbent member of the House of Representatives, although every speaker thus far has been.[4] The speaker is second in the United States presidential line of succession, after the vice president and ahead of the president pro tempore of the Senate.[2]

Falwell promises Cruz---Trump blackmails with the POOLBOY story

Falwell drops Cruz endorses Trump-----David Pecker/National Enquirer already had the "Poolboy" story----and offers Trump a "catch and kill" ----Michael Cohen for the assist -the BIG STORY here after all the entertaining salacious stuff ---is blackmail ail used to win an election ------a classic out of the Trump playbook

Bill Barr messed up ---Berman is the hero and wins the day

the BAnnon case was getting hotter ---and Barr tried to stop it ------and others---he news of Bannon's arrest comes at an interesting time for SDNY. Two months ago, Attorney General Bill Barr tried to force out the US attorney for the office, Geoffrey Berman, and to replace him with someone outside the ordinary line of succession. Berman professed to be deeply worried about what might happen to unspecified investigations SDNY was pursuing and initially refused to resign. Only when Barr agreed to let Strauss — Berman’s trusted deputy — take over did Berman accept his firing.

I like the fact that Audrey Strauss is the attorney on this case.

Leningrad Lindsay in CONNNECTICUT ---of all places

In New Haven, CT ---We just received a letter from Lindsay Graham addressed to us as REGISTERED DEMOCRATS!! The letter whines that he was treated unfairly by Democrats because of his Kavanaugh vote to SCOTUS. All I can say is that Jamie Harrison ---Graham's Democratic opponent for his Senate seat ---and his team are doing a super job. Graham is in serious trouble if he has to ask for money in Connecticut.

Dan Rather -to MATTHEWS SLOT-please play HARDBALL

Let's petition MSNBC to hire Dan Rather to fill Chris Matthews slot until the end of the year---he can have fellow Texan Willie Nelson on for his first show and have a ratings bonanza for the station----betcha he would steal a lot of the Fox audience too----a lot of them were fans when he reported the best news --


Supposing Mike Bloomberg offered all of the current 17 victims in the Trump’s sexual assault cases that are wallowing in the courts an immediate settlement double to what they are seeking? For their compensation they would offer not the traditional NON DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT ---but rather a FULL DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT detailing the circumstances and the behavior of their assailant. Now remember that Trump has offered to pay the legal fees for any of the goons that would attack a protester at his rallies, here Bloomberg would pay the legal costs (if any) of the women involved. For Bloomberg it could be a bit cathartic, and certainly put him in a better light for his NDAs.

For the victims it would expedite their cases and give them immediate justice. I think it would also be a shot in the arm for women's rights when they could see the possibility of alternate means to justice--

Russians --Trump Pee Tape for sale for $20 million

No source here --but my speculation . I am wondering if you would would consider it unethical if Michael Bloomberg were to buy the tape (if it was available) and used it in his current ad campaign. Do you think it would be permissible under the Supreme Court's concept of permitting independent expenditures for political communications by corporations. It seems as though it might be permitted to pay off a porn star to be silent about a candidate, but I am wondering if they could also be compensated for a complete disclosure? What do you think?

the GOP--Ignorance or racist

I've begun to say that if an ignorant person is a Republican, that is understandable. But if an intelligent person continues to support Republicans they are racist and outright cruel. Neither is forgiven, or given a pass on this. They need to be held responsible publically.

Biden on Hyde---might be a tipping point in the general

Endorsing the continual denial of federal funding for abortion just might be the tipping point with the religious right in the general election and allow them to vote for Biden. The mission is to get our candidate elected, and for me, the ultimate appointments to SCOTUS. -----not lose an election and have a few more Kavanaugh types on SCOTUS will ensure the end of a woman’s right to choose.----Biden is a safe bet for having inroads into the Republican electorate. They like him. If anyone would like to create a list of his character defects I can help and offer all sorts of things I do not agree with him on. To me, he is the most “ELECTABLE” candidate we have. And there is no part of a progressive agenda that will survive another four years of the current administration. For any of the progressives that were opposed to HRC all seem to agree that with her as President there would be no Kavanaugh or Gorsuch. This SCOTUS appointment issue is so critical to any progressive agenda that we need to understand that Biden’s position on Hyde takes votes away from Trump. The most recent polls from Texas show Biden leading over Trump. That is astounding.

Lindsay Graham is not a fox hole buddy---only a Fox News buddy

Lindsay Graham is not a fox hole buddy. He is a Fox News buddy, at best, but his loyalty to his friend John McCain is gone. The Marines use the term "Semper Fi" meaning "Always Faithful" and the Navy uses the term "Semper Fortis" --"Always Strong". Lindsay Graham is neither. I hope the super patriot State of South Carolina takes notice and puts someone in Washington that has not lost their noble cause. There is a great challenger in South Carolina and hope we can all support him.
