Twitter Titters At Trump's Claim 'We're Building A Wall In Colorado!' - 23 Oct 2019 at 6:00pm -

While speaking at Shale Insight, a conference put on by the Shale Coalition in Pittsburgh, Donald Trump made an odd declaration.

"New Mexico, which I think we're going to win. You know why we're going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on their border -- and they didn't have it," he bragged.

"And you know what? We're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado!"

Wait, WUT?

Of course there are tweets, because no one knows anything about this mysterious wall in Colorado.

Rep. Buddy Carter Warns Americans To Fear Their Own Impeachment - 23 Oct 2019 at 5:28pm -

BE SCARED, AMERICA! These are the words of Goon Boy Buddy Carter, one of the group who barged into the SCIF for some pizza and soda earlier today while tweeting on their cell phones.

And he's right. We should all be afraid, but not of what Carter thinks we should fear. Carter, who has sworn to uphold and defend the United States Constitution, is warning us all that if impeachment can happen to Donald Trump, well, it's anyone's game.

?Ladies and gentlemen, if a government can do this to the President of the United States, they can do this to you as well,? he warned.

Except that no. Impeachment is a thing which is defined in the Constitution and which applies to the President, Vice President, and Judges, specifically. The rest of us just lose our jobs if we're stupid or abuse the privileges that come with them. This really isn't terribly hard.

As for Carter and his pals, they can't be impeached either. They can, however, be expelled by a 2/3rds vote of the House. They can be censured, they can be referred to the Ethics Committee. It's possible they could lose their security clearance. Personally, I think each and every one of this jerks ought to lose their seats to someone who isn't a Goon for Trump.

It's also obvious what Carter and the rest are trying to do. There is no defense, so they're blowing smoke over it all, and they decided to pull their little stunt while Speaker Pelosi was attending her brother's funeral.

Keeping it classy.

Watch Carter make an idiot of himself:

Mark Zuckerberg Falters Under AOC's Grilling: 'Lying Is Bad' - 23 Oct 2019 at 5:09pm -

It's always a good day when AOC fires up the grill and hammers a witness like Mark Zuckerberg with a barrage of questions exposing the utter bankruptcy of his irresponsible, libertarian, democracy-wrecking policies over on Facebook. But today was especially grand, because she use the past behavior of Zuckerberg and his board pals to demonstrate why there is absolutely no way Facebook should be allowed to launch a proprietary cryptocurrency.

First, she laid the foundation with his Cambridge Analytica associations, with a touch of Peter Thiel for good measure. Then she moved on to his decision to allow politicians to spread disinformation via Facebook ads. That did not go well at all.

Finally, the pièce de résistance: Facebook's decision to allow Daily Caller, with its white supremacist ties, to fact-check news articles on the site. Oh, and there was this, too: "So you would say that white supremacist-tied publications meet a rigorous standard for fact checking?"

Watch it all, and here's the transcript for reference:

AOC: It's good to see you, Mr. Zuckerberg. I think you of all people can appreciate using a person's past behavior in order to determine, predict or make decisions about future behavior. In order for us to make decisions about Libra, we need to kind of dig into your past behavior and Facebook's past behavior with respect to our democracy. What year and month did you personally first become aware of Cambridge Analytica?

Was This Guy REALLY The Acting Attorney General? - 23 Oct 2019 at 4:10pm -

How can it be that Matt Whitaker, salesman of toilets for well-endowed men, was once our Acting Attorney General? It's unfathomable.

Here is Mr. Big Dick Toilet Salesman (h/t Marcy Wheeler) telling Laura Ingraham that abuse of power is not a crime.

Of course, he forgot to mention that impeachable offenses are not necessarily crimes, but abuse of power is right at the heart of what the Founders saw as an impeachable offense.

Partial transcript below, via Media Matters:

MATTHEW WHITAKER: I'm a former prosecutor and what I know is this is a perfect time for a preliminary hearing, where you would say, "Show us your evidence. What evidence of a crime do you have?"

I mean, the Constitution, you know, sort of -- abuse of power is not a crime. Let's fundamentally boil it down to -- you know, the Constitution is very clear that this has to be some pretty egregious behavior, and they cannot tell the American people what this case is even about.

At the end of the interview, Ingraham observed, "This is the revenge of the global elites."

Whitaker agreed.

What does that even mean?



Sean Duffy Slammed By Former Rep. For Sucking Up To Trump - 23 Oct 2019 at 3:32pm -

It must be exhausting to be a Trump defender. Please don't mistake that for sympathy...just an observation. It's certainly exhausting listening to Trump defenders. Especially defenders like Sean Duffy, who this morning, on CNN's New Day, spouted lies and moaned about the perceived injustice of the impeachment inquiry and its related hearings.

Host John Berman did his level best to keep Duffy in line, trying to keep to the facts, and the testimony from Bill Taylor's hearing that was released. Duffy incorrectly claimed the Taylor's opening statement had been "leaked." Berman shot back, "We do have what is called in the business a primary source. Which is the opening statement here....This is his testimony."

Duffy whined, "But John, we're having an impeachment trial right now!" Again, Berman had to explain elementary civics to him:

Richard Engel Rips Trump: 'The United States Betrayed An Ally' - 23 Oct 2019 at 2:54pm -

NBC correspondent Richard Engel on Wednesday lashed out at President Donald Trump for portraying the Middle East as ?sand and blood? to ?confuse? Americans about the U.S. retreat from Syria.

In a statement from the White House on Thursday, the president announced that he was lifting all sanctions on Turkey after President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an promised to enact a ?permanent? ceasefire against the Kurds.

?Let someone else fight over this long bloodstained sand,? the president said. At another point, he described the Middle East as ?tribal.?

Following the president?s remarks, Engel appeared outraged.

?Ethnic cleansing is a crime against humanity,? the correspondent explained. ?By witnessing it, by being in a position to stop it but being order not to stop it, [U.S. special forces] could open themselves up to accusations that they were even aiding and abetting.?

He continued: ?This was a very specific mission that was to fight against ISIS with a very small number of elite U.S. special operations forces. They were working, they had captured and killed tens of thousands of ISIS fighters. And then abruptly, for reasons that maybe we?ll know one day, President Trump has this call with Erdo?an and he decides to let Erdo?an, let Turkey invade and blow up the entire project.?

Engel noted that Trump was wrong to expect a few special forces to stay behind to takeover oilfields in the area.

Rep. Katie Porter Lights Up Facebook CEO Over Low Wages For Work He Won't Do - 23 Oct 2019 at 2:52pm -

Rep. Katie Porter continues to leave marks on the witnesses she questions in Congress, regardless of their social status or economic power. Here she is questioning Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, one of the richest men at the youngest age in the world, about the conditions under which he insists his contract workers labor.

He pays "content monitors" either $15 or $20 per hour to watch gruesome videos and content (murders, suicides, stabbings, etc) to determine whether or not it is allowed or appropriate for the site. This is work he does not ask his own Facebook employees to perform, remember. He contracts this traumatizing work out. Rep. Porter asks him to confirm that he cuts them off from mental health care when they leave the company, even if they have PTSD as a result of the work they've done for Facebook.

Then she lowers an even heavier hammer.

REP. PORTER: According to one report, these workers get 9 minutes of supervised wellness time per day. That means 9 minutes of time to cry in a stairwell while someone watches them. Would you be willing to commit to spending one hour a day for the next year watching these videos and acting as a content monitor, and only accessing the same benefits available to your workers?

ZUCKERBERG: Uh...Congresswoman...we work hard to make sure that we give good benefits to all the folks who are doing this...

REP PORTER: Mr. Zuckerberg, reclaiming my time. I would appreciate a yes or a no. Would you be willing to act as a content monitor? To have that life experience?

Wisconsin Hates My Dogs - 23 Oct 2019 at 2:00pm -

October is National Adopt-A-Dog Month, aimed to promote adoption over buying a puppy mill dog. Along those same lines, Tuesday was National Make A Dog's Day, which is celebrated by:

Visit a shelter, find a loyal canine companion and make a dog?s day through adoption! If the timing isn?t quite right, all are welcome to stop by a shelter and volunteer. Just by taking a shelter dog for a walk or bringing them a new chew toy, you?ll make their day. New blankets or treats are always welcome, too. Check your local shelter?s website for a list of needs. Each shelter takes donations, and their requirements vary depending on the time of year.

And if you already have a dog, you can do things that are extra special for them - things like taking a long walk or car ride, getting them a special treat or toy or just spending extra time with them.

Matt Gaetz And His GOP Goons Storm The Impeachment Hearings SCIF To Eat Pizza - 23 Oct 2019 at 12:12pm -

Republicans in Congress think it's a cool stunt to breach national security protocol for a photo op/political stunt.

GOP Head Dunce Matt Gaetz led the mob down to the secured room, called a SCIF, where a BIPARTISAN committee, mind you, was about to hear testimony from Laura Cooper about dealings in Ukraine. Please, please, do not let it fly under the radar that there were already members of the GOP on this committee, in the room, who were going to be allowed to ask questions and hear her testimony.

No, that wasn't good enough. Gaetz, Louis Gohmert, Jim Jordan, and their merry band of drunks and child molester-enabling cretins saw fit to wind their way down to the basement of the Capitol building and force their way into this room WITH THEIR CELL PHONES. According to reports on Twitter, they were screaming, and taking photos and videos. The Sargeant-At-Arms had to be called, and police had to do a sweep to ensure security hadn't been meaningfully compromised.

This is your "law and order" party. Anything to keep Trump from having to be held accountable for his crimes ? crimes against our country and crimes against humanity.

Matt Gaetz says he?s about to lead this phalanx of House Republicans into the SCIF to check out what?s going on with the whole impeachment thing pic.twitter.com/iFyxqMgcsr

OOPS. New York Times Corrects Their Hillary Clinton Lie - 23 Oct 2019 at 11:29am -

The New York Times needs therapy. Its irrational Hillary Hate is going to help sink us once again.

On Friday, the venerable Gray Lady published a story quoting Hillary Clinton as having said the Russians were grooming one of the Democratic presidential candidates as a 3rd party candidate in a podcast interview with David Plouffe.

That's not what she said.

Nick Merrill, her spokesperson, corrected the paper of record that night.

On Friday, the NYT did a piece about a podcast Secretary Clinton did with David Plouffe. They incorrectly quoted her saying that the ?Russians? were ?grooming? a candidate running in the Democratic primary. They rightfully fixed it to reflect that she was taking about the GOP. pic.twitter.com/iFCphQhZcU
