---And Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a close ally of the administration, urged the president to attack Iran outright — adding that he didn’t need permission from Congress. “Unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant a retaliatory military strike," Cotton told Brennan. “The president has the authorization to act to defend American interests,” he said.---

Oh, bullshit! McConnell even admitted it was a “Show vote.” How you gonna hold a vote on important legislation without a hearing?

Dems voted present as to say, “yeah we were here to witness this clown show but we ain’t with it.”

Surprised? The McConnell would not bring up in the Senate legislation that might negatively impact his party's hold 9n power? Fuck no, I am not surprised?

McConnell is not refusing to bring up House bills that raise campaign issues.  He is refusing to bring up House bills.

It has been a hallmark of McConnell's "leadership" that he fundamentally does not recognize the right of a political party that is not Republican to govern and follow through on the will of the American voters.  He has been so consistent on that point, it is laughable that someone might excuse it as avoiding election year controversy.  Unless you have been completely asleep the last ten years.

It has to be said, it is Joe Biden's belief that he can "shame" McConnnell into governing for the people not party that , if he really believes it, is one of the most disqualifying aspects of his candidacy.  You are talking about a guy who smiled and sipped from his drink as he told a group of people that he scammed America on Garland.

Barr's DOJ intervenes for Manafort to keep him our of Rikers:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/17/nyregion/manafort-rikers.html


Manafort will be getting a pardon.

Manafort lied to Mueller, very probably one of the factors that prevented Mueller from proving conspiracy charges.

The "rule of law" GOP will say nothing to object to this obviously corrupt obstruction of justice because like the man that leads them in the Senate they are completely shameless.

Patrick Shanahan your daily example of "only the best people."

An awfully hollow promise when your administration doesn't even follow the most basic vetting practices.

Enter kiidcarter8 to tell us how he would have been kept on in the Obama Administration...

Could it be that America's morbid fascination with Trump is ebbing:

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/06/17/trump-abc-interview-ratings-bust-1366130

Yes, he is a blowhard who says crazy shit who is fascinating like a dumpster fire is fascinating.  But the act gets old.

Maybe this is a sign that we have learned our lesson, and are ready for the President of the United States to be more than a spectacular train wreck we can't turn away from.

Without affixing blame, those Shanahan stories are horrific and again bring to mind Tolstoy's commentary on happy/unhappy families.  I would think there are plenty of other important things that Shanahan can do.

‘Inhumane, Disgraceful and Dangerous’: Mayor Garcetti Responds to Trump’s Threat to Deport Millions of Immigrants

POSTED 12:01 PM, JUNE 18, 2019, BY NOURAN SALAHIEH, UPDATED AT 12:20PM, JUNE 18, 2019

https://ktla.com/2019/06/18/inhumane-disgraceful-and-dangerous-mayor-garcetti-responds-to-trumps-threat-to-deport-millions-of-immigrants/

--------

California is a Sanctuary State, and so is Nevada. Some other states are Sanctuary States as well. We need to do Civil Disobedience until we can make our rules match our beliefs. We need to do Civil Disobedience until we can do like Reagan did and make our immigrants legal so that they can legally work, pay taxes, and so that they can join unions, and so that they can call the police in the case of an emergency, etc.

We need to have a special GOOD NEIGHBOR policy with our good Christian neighbors here in the Western Hemisphere, and we need to put our immigrants to work, we need to create good honest jobs for them, and also many immigrants start new businesses, etc.

And we need for our Statue of Liberty to be what we stand for, not a wall.

Also, instead of wasting money on a wall, we need new water systems in many locations here in the USA, we need to make sure that our people have safe water to drink. There are many ways that we can spend money, instead of wasting money on a wall that we do not need and which no one wants.

Salute,

Tony V.

Go back to Boeing. See if anyone wants to buy some slightly used 737 aircrafts that may or may not still have that fancy autocrash feature.
