So, the only thing worse than Joe Biden supporting the Hyde Amendment

...is Joe Biden deciding not to after listening to criticism.

Well, geez, I want someone who is unyielding, stubborn and impervious to criticism.

Executive Order 13535

Remember the outrage here over this.....


Executive Order 13535 is an executive order announced by President Barack Obama on March 21, 2010, and signed on March 24. It reinforces a commitment to preservation of the Hyde Amendment's policy restricting federal funds for abortion within the context of recent health care legislation. The order was signed after an agreement with pro-life Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak, who had said he and several other pro-life Democrats in the House of Representatives would not support the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act unless the Bill's language prohibiting federal funding of abortions was strengthened.

State Bar of California Proceeding To Place Avenatti On Involuntary Inactive Status


Today the State Bar filed a petition with the State Bar Court to place Los Angeles attorney Michael J. Avenatti on involuntary inactive status, pursuant to California Business and Professions Code 6007(c)(1)-(3).

This section of statute, amended by the Legislature on January 1, 2019, authorizes the Office of Chief Trial Counsel to file a petition for involuntary inactive enrollment of an attorney when there is sufficient evidence to show that the attorney caused or is causing substantial harm to the attorney’s clients or the public and there is a reasonable probability both that the Chief Trial Counsel will prevail on a related disciplinary matter and that the attorney will be disbarred.

The licensee has 10 days from the service of the petition to file a verified response and request a hearing. If the licensee does not do so within that time frame, he waives the right to a hearing.

If no hearing is held, the State Bar Court must file its decision within 30 days of submission. If a hearing is requested, the Court will set a hearing date.


The full complaint is here:


Attached to the complaint are all of the records and communications between Avenatti and the client Gregory Barela from whom Avenatti outright stole more than $700,000 and has ignored inquiries from the State Bar of California about why Barela never received his payment, and why Avenatti provided Barela a falsified version of the settlement agreement and lied about receiving the money.

Whenever you wonder, "How could people fall for an obvious fraudulent con man like Trump?", take a look at the people who deliberately ignored every red flag about Michael Avenatti, took him for some kind of hero, and intentionally misdirected others to minimize facts that were known about him early on.

"The New Girl" (1960)

This film depicts the often-overlooked struggles that white men had to go through in the 1960's in order to advance racial equality among the office girls....

If you would like a sitting president to be indictable by a state...

...then consider the fact that the chief law enforcement officer of the most populous county of the state where this creature was governor....

...was of the firm belief in his official capacity that the president was an impostor who had forged his birth certificate.

Consider the fact that Judge Roy Moore was called “judge” not as an honorary title but as one of the leading jurists of a state.

Do consider that if you want “a state” to be able to indict “a president”, then it would be open for “any state” to indict “any president”.

Including a state that had elected this creature:

Think of the regular cavalcade of scumbaggery and shenanigans in which the attorneys general of the states engage. We are talking about law enforcement officials who have gone after Planned Parenthood over deceptively edited videos, and who are chomping at the bit to lock women up for having miscarriages they deem suspicious.

Be careful what you wish for.

Mueller condensed: "Louise Mensch was and is full of shit"

You're welcome.

Have you seen this fish?

I took a bike ride today along the C&O canal and was very worried about this person....


****BREAKING**** Warren Reported To Have Taken Money From A School For Personal Use

According to an analysis of documents released by the Warren campaign itself, for more than a decade Elizabeth Warren had been receiving payments from Harvard Law School to the tune of over six figures ANNUALLY!

The money is believed to have been used by Warren for whatever she felt like spending it on, investing in, or saving, with no supervision whatsoever by anyone else responsible for her behavior.

I'm sorry folks, but as much as I like Warren, this is not looking good.

I mean, who knows why she would be receiving these payments or what she could have needed the money for.

On edit after hide and appeal: kindly review the WAPO coverage on Warren’s legal fees, which were reported in this manner this morning.

More Propaganda Designed To Undermine The Constitution Here On DU

If you think you are being cute or witty by pointing out that Judge Merrick Garland is on the DC Court of Appeals so that, yes, a lot of appeals from the DCDC end up in that appellate court, and that this is somehow an opportunity for "karma" or "payback" of some kind, I'd like to suggest you are neither cute nor witty.

What you are, in fact, is a useful idiot in the continuing campaign to advance the notion that the institutions of the Constitution are thoroughly corrupted by petty self-interest, and that federal judges in particular are primarily motivated by personal vendettas.

This is a constant theme on DU. I can only guess as to why.

More recently, the judge in California presiding over the glyphosate litigation was confirmed, by many DUers as being a corrupt corporate tool on the basis of an evidentiary ruling he made months ago. When the plaintiffs actually won the trial, somehow it wasn't as interesting to the DU "corrupt federal judge" contingent.

I can only guess as to why.

I doubt that Judge Merrick issues rulings for the purpose of advancing his personal emotional satisfaction. In fact, I'm pretty sure he doesn't.

If you would like others to believe that he does, then I would like to know why (a) you believe bullshit like that, and/or (b) why you want others to believe bullshit like that.

I don't think that Judge Garland is corrupt. But it is obvious that a whole bunch of DUers want you to believe he is. Ask yourself why.

Are you familiar with the Belt and Road Initiative?

Coming soon, to a world near you from which we have retreated...


The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a global development strategy adopted by the Chinese government involving infrastructure development and investments in 152 countries and international organizations in Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas. "Belt" refers to the overland routes for road and rail transportation, called "the Silk Road Economic Belt"; whereas "road" refers to the sea routes, or the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.


A report from Fitch Ratings suggests that China's plan to build ports, roads, railways, and other forms of infrastructure in under-developed Eurasia and Africa is out of political motivation rather than real demand for infrastructure. ...

The Belt and Road Initiative is believed by some analysts to be a way to extend Chinese influence at the expense of the US, in order to fight for regional leadership in Asia. China has already invested billions of dollars in several South Asian countries like Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan to improve their basic infrastructure, with implications for China's trade regime as well as its military influence.
