Never forget that the ONLY change the Trump campaign wanted in the 2016 Republican platform

was their statement of support for Ukraine.

Trump campaign guts GOP’s anti-Russia stance on Ukraine

By Josh Rogin July 18, 2016

The Trump campaign worked behind the scenes last week to make sure the new Republican platform won’t call for giving weapons to Ukraine to fight Russian and rebel forces, contradicting the view of almost all Republican foreign policy leaders in Washington.

Throughout the campaign, Trump has been dismissive of calls for supporting the Ukraine government as it fights an ongoing Russian-led intervention. Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, worked as a lobbyist for the Russian-backed former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych for more than a decade.

Still, Republican delegates at last week’s national security committee platform meeting in Cleveland were surprised when the Trump campaign orchestrated a set of events to make sure that the GOP would not pledge to give Ukraine the weapons it has been asking for from the United States.


Three letters, Lauren: STFU

Oh, please.

You don't need Deep State for that when any moron can change the path of a hurricane with a map and a black Sharpie.

The big surprise for me is that someone would have an affair with Ken Paxton.

DALLAS (AP) — Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had an extramarital affair with a woman whom he later recommended for a job with the wealthy donor now at the center of criminal allegations against him, according to two people who said Paxton told them about the relationship.

The two people, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity due to fears about retaliation, said the high-profile Republican official acknowledged the affair in 2018 to senior members of his office and political staff. They said he told them that he had ended the affair with the woman, who then worked for a GOP state senator.

Austin developer Nate Paul said in a deposition this week that Paxton recommended the woman for her job with Paul’s real estate company, according to a transcript of his deposition obtained by the AP. The woman had stopped working as a Senate aide at the end of 2019, though her reason for departing wasn’t immediately clear.


Is spousal immunity the glue keeping the Paxton’s marriage together?

Four years. For four years, the world's mightiest military was under the command

of a sadistic, impulsive child. Nearly every elected Republican and other leading Republicans accepted this, enabled it and publicly pretended it wasn’t so. Most mainstream media went along with the game and treated his unfitness as “gaffes” and opposition from Democrats as “politics as usual”. Every day we learn more things that many, many people already knew about and did nothing at the time except keep notes for the book they planned to write.

That's cool. Marking to find later.

This is very interesting. Marking to find later.

Pho sure.

I hope they don't all start coming down with window flu.

Ha! And they couldn't put their own lunches back in their coolers to eat later.

Although, if they'd been willing to share what they'd brought with everybody else, Jesus's drastic actions would not have been necessary.
