Above all the impeachable Trumpshit, this:

Trump’s actions and lies helped Putin and Russia, those who attacked our democracy,
and hurt the United States and our allies, those who defend democracy.

What the cellist said...

Pablo Casals: “In the confusion that afflicts the world today, I see a disrespect for the very values of life. Beauty is all about us, but how many are blind to it! They look at the wonder of this earth — and seem to see nothing. People move hectically but give little thought to where they are going…

“Each second we live in a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that never was before and will never be again. And what do we teach our children in school? We teach them that two and two makes four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all of the world there is no other child exactly like you. In the millions of years that have passed there has never been another child like you. And look at your body — what a wonder it is! Your legs, your arms, your cunning fingers, the way you move! You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must cherish one another. You must work — we all must work — to make this world worthy of its children.”

WALL STREET Dem donors: "We'll sit out or back Trump if you nominate WARREN."

That’s all right with me.
Wall Street screws 99% of the country.
For all they can.
All day.
Every day.

Wall Street Democratic donors warn the party: We’ll sit out, or back Trump, if you nominate Elizabeth Warren

Sept. 26, 2019, CNBC.com

Democratic donors on Wall Street and in big business are preparing to sit out the presidential campaign fundraising cycle — or even back President Donald Trump — if Sen. Elizabeth Warren wins the party’s nomination.

In recent interviews of several big-money Democratic donors and fundraisers in the business community, CNBC has found that this opinion is becoming widely shared as Warren surges against Joe Biden.

Warren is a critic of big banks and corporations, and has called for a wealth tax.

In recent weeks, CNBC spoke to several high-dollar Democratic donors and fundraisers in the business community and found that this opinion was becoming widely shared as Warren, an outspoken critic of big banks and corporations, gains momentum against Joe Biden in the 2020 race.

“You’re in a box because you’re a Democrat and you’re thinking, ‘I want to help the party, but she’s going to hurt me, so I’m going to help President Trump,’” said a senior private equity executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity in fear of retribution by party leaders. The executive said this Wednesday, a day after Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would begin a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.



The 99% deserve a break ASAFP.

"I hereby command all to..."

Resign, Benedict Donald!

Witch hunt over, man.

It must really make her mad to be repeatedly asked!

Not that there’s a reason for it.

Elizabeth Warren has just one plan

A detailed look at Warren’s successes and failures at the start of the CFPB — and what they tell us about how she might govern.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s unofficial campaign slogan is “she’s got a plan for that.” The reality is, she has just one.

She wants to finish what she started when she first came to Washington. And she will bring with her a cadre of energetic, ideologically committed regulators who will go after the bad guys of corporate America who she believes have crippled the national economy.

If Warren wins the presidency, she, like any Democrat, will face steep odds of getting an ambitious legislative agenda through Congress. The real action in any administration is executive in nature: knowing what regulatory buttons to push, which enforcers can really go foor blood, who to put where, and how to manage them.


Warren saw Geithner and other key members of Obama’s team such as National Economic Council Director Larry Summers (and by extension Obama himself) as too soft on Wall Street and too compromised by ties to the business world. These days, Siewert runs global corporate communications for Goldman Sachs, Geithner is president of the investment bank Warburg Pincus, and Summers has moonlighted as an adviser to Citigroup and D.E. Shaw while teaching at Harvard and taking shots at Warren’s wealth tax.

I spoke with 30 current and former government officials and employees, lobbyists, industry insiders, consumer advocates, and members of Warren’s inner circle to understand who Warren really is, not only as a policymaker but also as an executive, a decisionmaker, and a leader. Her supporters and detractors describe her as ruthlessly committed to her ideals — and ruthlessly effective at making them real.
