Senator Johnson is being less unclear than Senator Ernst.

Quote
A top US diplomat told Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) that the Trump administration was blocking hundreds of millions of dollars in US military aid to Ukraine until the country agreed to launch investigations Trump was demanding, Johnson told the Wall Street Journal Friday.

Johnson said that the US ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, told him in late August that the administration was demanding Ukraine investigate “what happened in 2016,” and that if President Trump had “confidence” in the investigation, he’d “release the military spending.”

...
Johnson claims he heard from Sondland that this was in fact the policy. However, Johnson adds that he became disturbed by this, and followed up with President Trump himself — who denied any such linkage. “He said—expletive deleted—‘No way. I would never do that. Who told you that?” Johnson told Journal reporters Siobhan Hughes and Rebecca Ballhaus.

But the story doesn’t end there. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Molly Beck, Patrick Marley, and Eric Litke, Johnson said in a separate interview that Trump did say he was considering withholding the aid because he wanted to find out “what happened in 2016.

Johnson said he asked Trump whether he could tell Ukraine’s president the aid was on the way anyway, to dispel the government’s fears, but “I didn’t succeed.”

Seems pretty clear to everybody but Kid. (Ward likely knows, but is busy chasing squirrels.)

Killing spies?

"Bridge of Spies" starring Tom Hanks shows exactly why spies must not be killed.

Trump's polling numbers are unprecedented compared to Clinton's or Nixon's.


Unlike the other two, trump has conclusively proven the country derives zero benefit from him and his remaining anywhere near office, irrespective of the rightness or legality of some set of things he did.

There is no harm in dumping him, however shitty pence may be.

Less than the same month and less than the month before, while fewer new jobs were generated than expected.

“Workers’ hourly wages dropped by a penny in September”

http://www.vox.com/identities/2019/10/4/20898500/trump-economy-september-jobs-report

Growing like your erections and your capacity to deal in truth. Negative growth is still growth, right?

Don’t get so distracted by the douche bag’s impeachment and the total dismantling of the republican party that you miss that things are already much worse in the economy under the graft mollusk than you had though possible.

Whatever your handler needs you to say, boss.

You are more use as a piss stop than as any part of a conversation.

News Item


The jobless rate dropped to 3.5% in September from 3.7% in August, marking the lowest rate since December 1969 when it also logged in at 3.5%. Employers added 136,000 jobs in September, and payrolls for August and July were revised up, the Labor Department reported Friday.

Job gains and historically low unemployment have helped buffer the U.S. economy against weakness in manufacturing at home and abroad that have stoked concerns of a deepening slowdown.
