Avenatti's latest Twitter spanking of "tough guys" Cohen and "David Dennison."

Michael Avenatti

@MichaelAvenatti

MC and DJT pride themselves on being "tough guy" negotiators who don’t simply roll over because someone demands it. But here, they expect people to believe that MC paid my client $130k immediately after she demanded it, even though they knew all along she was lying. #BS #basta

"It seems clear the president is trying to figure out how to stick all of us with the (wall) tab"

Today's lone Trump tweet, and it's a re-tweet from the White House.

GOP Food Stamp Plan Would Shift Some Funds From Benefits To Training

GOP Food Stamp Plan Would Shift Some Funds From Benefits To Training

The proposal to reauthorize the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program would subject more enrollees to “work requirements,” and would require states to set up training programs for 3 to 5 million people who might be unable to find suitable private sector work. Such programs currently serve 700,000 SNAP recipients.

****

A spokesperson for House Agriculture Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), who’s been holding hearings on overhauling food stamps since 2015 and is the author of the bill, did not immediately confirm or deny the details of the legislation.

Conaway has said in recent weeks that his SNAP overhaul wouldn’t reduce federal spending on the program. According to the Democratic summary, “the billions of dollars in cuts to food benefits would be used to create state bureaucracies.”

Democrats say the work requirements proposal could potentially deny benefits to 3 percent of enrollees in 2027. According to Congressional Budget Office enrollment projections, that would amount to nearly 1 million people that year.

R.I.P. Mike Harrison from Spooky Tooth



http://dmme.net/mike-harrison-of-spooky-tooth-passed-away/



One of the best blues singers… soul singers… hard rock singers… Mike Harrison, who passed away today, March 25th, at the age of 72, was as impossible to pigeonhole as SPOOKY TOOTH, the band he used to front, were. But when Mike delivered the likes of “Better By You, Better Than Me” nobody cared for categorization – being carried away with the sheer emotionality of Harrison’s voice. Either stood at the microphone or sat at the piano, he seemed to symbolize any group, though, despite the presence of great instrumentalists such as Keith Emerson, a fellow member of THE V.I.P.s in the ’60s, and “Supernatural Fairy Tales” – which he recorded when that ensemble became ART – is a minor psychedelic classic. Still, it’s the TOOTH that the vocalist found fame with.

From 1966 to 1970 and in 1972-1973, Mike shone in the vast variety of SPOOKY styles, on both covers like Dylan’s “The Weight” and originals, mostly written by keyboard player Gary Wright. The collective got resurrected, with some of the musicians absent, in 1998 and 2004, the latest – last ever – reunion resulting in "Nomad Poets" which would serve as their epitaph now that the singer and drummer Mike Kellie died. There were also less celebrated records with Harrison on: "Ceremony", the band’s collaboration with Pierre Henry, who recently checked out from this mortal coil, too, a document of his stint with HAMBURG BLUES BAND, and Mike’s solo albums. The brilliant likes of “Rainbow Rider” featured stellar line-ups, including Mick Jones and Morgan Fisher, and were covers-heavy – and there could have been much more if the vocalist didn’t disappear from public view for long periods of time, as he did between 1975 and 1997 and from 2006 until now.

David Bowie statue vandalized less than 48 hours after it was unveiled

The statue of David Bowie in the market square of Aylesbury, England, has been vandalized less than 48 hours after it was unveiled.

The area around the new statue has been hit with graffiti. As Mix96 reports, the ground in front of it reads "Feed the homeless first" and, on the wall behind it, someone spray-painted "RIP DB" twice. Photos show that some paint landed on the base of the Bowie statue.

"I was very disappointed that this has happened, but when I went to see it, it could have been a lot worse," David Stopps, the local music promoter who led the campaign to erect the statue, told the station. "We're busy cleaning it up now. The paint was on the statue, the wall behind and on the pavement. It was about the homeless -- but I do quite a lot for the homeless, which is the irony of the whole thing."

“I want to point out that this statue received precisely £0 of public money," Aylesbury Deputy Mayor Mark Willis told NME. "‘That’s right, £0. It was entirely funded through crowdfunding, by members of the public, myself included. One of the charities I support monthly is Shelter, as homelessness and poverty are absolute scourges on society that need solving.”

Sarah Sanders dodges on why Trump attorney paid Stormy Daniels

Kayleigh McEnany doesn't believe Trump slept with Daniels, and if he did, it doesn't matter

WSJ: "His recent selections of John Bolton and Mike Pompeo for his security team are first rate"



Stating “CBS’s 60 Minutes Sunday still has the potential to harm Mr. Trump. That’s not because of the 2006 hookup or its mockable details,” the Journal asked, ” why did his lawyer Michael Cohen go to such lengths to keep it quiet before Election Day in 2016?”

“It’s impossible to predict how all of this will play out politically. Many Trump partisans will refuse to believe it or claim it’s irrelevant,” the editorial explains. “But our guess is that at the margin this contributes to a growing public belief that Mr. Trump’s personal flaws are undermining his chances for a successful Presidency.”

“Two months ago he had emerged from a tumultuous first year with the triumph of tax reform and rising poll numbers. The strong economy had Republicans closing the gap with Democrats on who should run Congress next year. But Mr. Trump can’t resist promoting White House strife and making himself the center of political tumult,” the editors lamented.

“His recent selections of John Bolton and Mike Pompeo for his security team are first rate,” the piece continued. “But Mr. Trump’s reality-TV dismissal of their predecessors was nasty and chaotic. On Friday he threatened to veto a budget bill his own staff had been negotiating for weeks—further souring voters on the GOP Congress. Doesn’t he realize that if Democrats win the House, they will vote to impeach him?”
