    The Turtle continues his Ironical Idiot Of All Time reign.

    ouse Democrats expressed deep concerns about the White House's ability to protect voting systems in 2020, drawing fresh scrutiny to the administration’s efforts to prevent foreign meddling in another election. But Senate Republicans said they had faith in the administration's handling of the issue and saw no need for further legislation on election security.
    In a floor speech earlier Wednesday, McConnell (R-Ky.) said that while Congress will continue to “assess whether future legislative steps might be needed,” he accused Democrats of making election security a political issue.

    In the same remarks, McConnell went on to complain about “the election interference that happened on the Obama administration’s watch.”

    The good news is the DNC hired Brenthoven's stunt double to run against him for the 2020 cycle.

    He’s been ragging on her for a while now. There was a discussion on The Press Pool this week on POTUS about what Nancy is doing. But even they were kind of perplexed by the interview Nancy gave (to the NYT?)

    I follow a lot of people so I only see some of his tweets (usually dunking on Dinesh or some other idiot).

    Understood. Twitter can be a bit much if you follow a lot. I try to keep the numbers down. I should probably go in and prune my list since I havne't done that in years.

    Kruse and others are the only reason I haven't deleted my account. I still think there are better mediums, but then again, I would have never heard of Kruse without Twitter, so maybe it can be redeemed.

    Edit: Watching him savage Dinesh is great. He's almost made an entire career on it.

    Nancy Pelosi, Impeachment, and Places in History

    Nancy Pelosi has been reluctant to impeach Donald Trump, but denying the reality of his transgressions will only perpetuate his narcissism and enable him politically.

    With regard to the debate over the proper response to Donald Trump’s brazen deeds, Pelosi has not taken impeachment off the table, saying, “I don’t think you should impeach for political reasons, and I don’t think you should not impeach for political reasons.” Yet political reasons seem to be preventing her from pursuing constitutional concerns. Her reasoning is clear: if the House were to launch an impeachment without “overwhelming” evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors and strong bipartisan public support, Trump’s inevitable acquittal in the Republican-controlled Senate would only strengthen him, and he could cruise to reëlection. But, in this instance, Pelosi’s normally acute political judgment is failing her, and the historical precedent she is evidently relying on—the impeachment of President Bill Clinton—is not analogous. In fact, based on the past half century of political history, suppressing an impeachment inquiry seems more likely to help insure Trump’s reëlection. If this happens, Pelosi’s formidable reputation, based on a lifetime of public service and her role as the first female Speaker of the House, will suffer.
    The basic historical error behind suppressing an impeachment inquiry confuses the genuine crisis surrounding Trump with the manufactured one that engulfed Clinton. In 1998, the House Republicans, lacking public support and all but assured that the Senate, though it was controlled by their own party, would not convict Clinton, impeached him anyway, which only served to win him sympathy and drive up his popularity ratings. Pelosi apparently sees the same thing happening now, but the two cases are very different.
    When the scandal involving Clinton and Monica Lewinsky broke, in January of 1998, Republicans had been pursuing both Bill and Hillary Clinton for more than five years, and they had come up with nothing. In the view of most Americans, the Lewinsky story, although pathetic and unnerving, never amounted to a case sufficient to justify Clinton’s removal from office, even when attached to Clinton’s dissembling under oath about the matter. Moreover, Clinton, unlike Trump, was a broadly popular President: when the scandal broke, his approval rating hovered around sixty-six per cent; on the day he was impeached, it rose to seventy-three per cent; the week after his acquittal, it was the same as it had been at the beginning: sixty-six per cent.
    Trump, by contrast, is the least popular President of the postwar period, who enjoys a fiercely loyal base but so far has failed to win the support of more than half those Americans polled. More important, the evidence presented in the Mueller report—regarding the Trump campaign’s expectation that it could benefit from Russian interference and hacking efforts, and numerous contacts with Russians, as well as the President’s subsequent attempts to obstruct justice—is formidable, if, in Mueller’s view, insufficient to “establish” that members of the Trump campaign actually conspired or coördinated with Russia. (The insufficiency, of course, may have been due to the efforts at obstruction that the report describes.) Despite Barr’s efforts to obscure the fact that Mueller’s report does not exonerate the President, only thirty-three per cent of Americans, according to a Quinnipiac poll, believe that the Attorney General has accurately represented the report’s conclusions. That number may fall further after Mueller’s testimony before Congress, which is scheduled for next week.
    Etc.

    I have not been in the cafe for a long time and I have been just hammered by the politicians lack of civility and decency to get things done in Congress for the people

    I hate watching the news yet I do to try to keep informed of current news or problems

    I just hope someday we get back to normalcy

    This is just horrible and we are vulnerable to all kinds of dangers internally and externally

    No matter what party or views you have we need to get it together 🇺🇸

    I would like to hope in 2020 even conservative voters will kick Dump and the GOP out just to end the tidal wave of stupid and crazy but then I look at the way even the most conscientious conservatives are blind to it and, no, no hope is coming from them. joe's not a jerk and he's not a fool, and yet... So no hope is coming from that side. They don't see it. We've learned something about the brain. Presumably if it ever happens with us we won't see it either.

    So this is up to the rest of us. And my God, there's more than enough of us -- Dump won with something like 24% of the eligible electorate last time. We have to overwhelm them and whether we do it out of anger or fear or idealism it doesn't matter. We just have to take our country back from these monsters.

    No disagreement here other than I think a, "return to normalcy", probably isn't going to happen anytime soon if ever. I'm not gonna get into the politics of it other than to say that there are too many issues where compromise is basically impossible due to the difference stances/approaches to them.

    Sorry you didn't see the humor, BC. My bad, I guess, for not using an emoticon.
