Russ Feingold told me last year HRC would have won by 9M, not 3M were it not for R voter suppression

Russ Feingold told me last year HRC would have won by 9M, not 3M were it not for R voter suppression. Right out of his mouth. The Rs in WI are expert at all manner of voter suppression. And they are blatant, as you guys see how Trump & CO operate...they cheat and lie and don't care who knows...nobody holds them accountable. Our minority(1/3) in the Assembly is impossible to flip, but we are hoping for Governor..

I will never vote early again. In Racine they threw thousands of early votes away. And we know they mess with the machines, too. Damn Citizens United and demolishing Voting Rights Act and gerrymandering and Voter ID for aiding them to legally cheat, also.

WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED WORLD HEREBY DECLARE THAT KIM AND KANYE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DIVORCE.

NOPE! WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED WORLD HEREBY DECLARE THAT KIM AND KANYE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DIVORCE. Because these two vapid egomaniacs entered a marriage and agreed to deal with each other, we are rejecting the notion of allowing either of them to roam the Earth as single people again, due to potentially spreading their sickness to new victims. May they forever drive each absolutely INSANE till death do they part.

Just do it in private please....from now on...

Sarah Silverman smacks FOX for smacking Jamie Lee Curtis...


@FoxNews
Jamie Lee Curtis wields firearms in new 'Halloween' movie despite advocating for gun control.


Sarah Silverman Retweeted Fox News

Hey, Fox News! So, Halloween is a horror movie - it’s totally pretend. Nobody who goes to see it thinks it is real. It’s the acting out of something no one ever wants in real life- violence & murder! Hope this helps. ❤️

Judge Mandates Partial Release of Watergate 'Road Map' That Could Offer Guidance to Impeach Trump

Legal scholars argue the report on former President Richard Nixon "would be a vital touchstone for the public and Congress" to assess actions and findings related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe

In a move that some legal experts say could provide guidance on efforts to impeach President Donald Trump, a federal judge on Thursday ordered the partial release of a report that Watergate special prosecutor Leon Jaworski had called the "road map," which detailed evidence about former President Richard Nixon's involvement with the Watergate break-in and the attempted cover-up.

Jaworski had delivered the road map to the House Judiciary Committee in 1974. In an order (pdf) first reported by Politico, Chief U.S. District Court Judge Beryl Howell instructed the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to "promptly begin the process of reviewing and releasing" the road map's two-page summary and 53-point list of individual statements, as well as 81 supporting documents that are already in the public domain.

For the 16 supporting documents that have not yet been seen by the public, Howell ordered the Department of Justice (DOJ) to "contact any individuals whose privacy might be implicated" by their release, to determine their opinions on making the documents public, and to file status updates on such efforts every 30 days.

While Howell's order comes in response to a previously rejected request from California attorney Geoffrey Shepard—a member of Nixon's defense team who says he wants "to know what prosecutors told the grand jury to convince them to adopt the road map as their own and to name Richard Nixon as a co-conspirator in the Watergate cover-up"—it also fulfills a much more recent request motivated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into allegations of collusion and obstruction of justice against the Trump campaign and administration, including the president.

As Politico reported:

What may have spurred action on Shepard's 7-year-old petition is a similar request filed last month by three scholars urging the court to make the road map public. However, that request was narrower than Shepard's, and it sought only the summaries—not the underlying materials.

Those making the new request—Stephen Bates, a University of Nevada journalism professor and former Whitewater investigation prosecutor; Jack Goldsmith, a Harvard law professor; and Lawfare editor Benjamin Wittes—said they were acting to spur discussion about the mechanism Watergate special prosecutor Leon Jaworski used and how it could be used by Mueller.

As Bates, Goldsmith, and Wittes outlined in a blog post last month, "to the extent that Mueller is contemplating a referral to Congress of possible impeachment material, he has two historical models of such documents to draw on. One, the so-called Starr Report, is famous and publicly available. The other is a document most people have never heard of: the 'road map.'"

Referencing reporting that Mueller is considering producing a report for lawmakers to detail the findings of his investigation, the trio argued that the road map should be made public not only for the special counsel to review, but also because it "would be a vital touchstone for the public and Congress to assess his actions," which includes serving as "an important point of comparison in judging the validity of Mueller's failure to issue a report."

Noting that "many of President Trump's actions that his critics say constitute obstruction of justice had parallels in the Nixon presidency" and "the House of Representatives, in its first article of impeachment, charged Nixon with obstruction of justice based in part on his 'interfering'" with investigations by federal agencies, the trio further argued that "the road map might also have substantive legal relevance."

Lawmakers Drinking on the Job Shielded from Press Scrutiny

On July 8, about four hours into the 2015 Assembly budget debate, the State Capitol was evacuated for what police called a “credible bomb threat.” During the evacuation, a group of male legislators headed to a sidewalk tavern across the street from the Capitol for what the Capital Times dubbed a “bipartisan beer summit.”

Among the beer drinkers—who were officially “on the clock” at the time and whose salaries and per diems are paid for by taxpayers (technically, they’re state employees)—was Rep. Robin Vos, who happens to be a fierce proponent of drug testing for food stamp recipients, the unemployed, and low-wage earners, and who, ironically, once suggested a message be sent to benefit recipients that reads, “get yourself productive and stop asking the taxpayers to help subsidize your lifestyle.”

When the session reconvened 2 1/2 hours after the evacuation, it became apparent that not all the lawmakers had adhered to their claim of “limiting their consumption to one beer.” Eyewitnesses in the Assembly gallery that evening reported that several representatives were clearly intoxicated as they argued for what Rep. Terese Berceau called the worst budget she had seen in all her 17 years in office.

Rep. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield), another staunch advocate of drug testing low-income Wisconsin residents, was the most visibly inebriated member on the floor, as was evidenced by his slurring in the four speeches he gave over the course of the night. [07.08.15 Wisconsin Eye Assembly Floor Session (Part – 2) 1:43:47; 2:32:42; 2:47:38; 3:43:18]

In an interview last May, shortly after he voted for Gov. Walker’s drug testing proposal as part of the budget committee, Kooyenga (who should perhaps look in the mirror) stated, “The problem with substance abuse is when you have these drug problems is you’re a danger to the people around you. And most importantly, you’re a danger to yourself. And so the reason we do that is not because we want to slap someone down and punish them and make their life miserable, the reason we do that is because we care.”

beer koyThe “drunken legislators” story was picked up by Crooks and Liars and many other online sites, and as of Saturday evening, the video of Rep. Kooyenga slurring on the Assembly floor had received over 12,000 hits. Yet the story of legislators drinking on the job—legislators who want to drug test food share, unemployment and Medicaid recipients—was given a pass by mainstream media.

Given the outrageous content of the budget—including a provision that removes local control in Dane County that would have required Enbridge Energy to carry $25 million in pollution insurance before it can proceed with a planned pipeline capacity expansion—many in the state feel that these legislators are not only a danger to themselves but to the rest of Wisconsin as well, drunk or sober.
