BOOM. Cohen had a mtg w/Trump BEFORE his House Intel Committee testimony in 2017.

BOOM. Mtg was with Trump himself, and Jay Secolow (sp?).

OMG. This Repub Rep calls Cohen a "pathological liar"!

And says, "this is all about YOU, isn't it?" "You can't tell fact from fiction."

The nerve! With Trump the poster boy for pathological lying, narcissistic, not based in reality...they have the nerve to reflect that on Cohen?

That's straight out of Trump's playbook of calling the opponent what YOU are.

Cohen is losing his cool.

He is being hammered, and his statements misrepresented, and irrelevant things brought up....all to attack Cohen. This is going to be a rough day, as Republicans jockey to get their 2 min sound bites on the evening news, and seek to destroy his personally.

I was hoping he would keep his cool. But he got a little upset there with the last 2 Republicans interrogators (or rather, speech makers). He did all right, but not as cool as before.

I hope he can keep his cool.

The problem with mob members who turn on "the family," is that they are dirty. They were part of a dirty business. These sorts of witnesses are always dirty. Who else would have been part of the inner circle and have intimate knowledge of the family's crimes?

As long as documentation, communications, and testimony by others supports Cohen's testimony, it's a done deal for truth seekers (the law). Which of course leaves behind Republicans, since they are not truth seekers. They won't even let him answer sometimes.

The chair needs to intervene, so Cohen can finish his answers, when they cut him off.

Trump once called executive action on immigration dangerous, unconstitutional and impeachable

President Donald Trump once said taking executive action on immigration was an unconstitutional action that could lead to impeachment. (snip) Trump made the comments on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" in November 2014 when asked about executive actions by then-President Barack Obama that would halt deportations for the undocumented parents of children born in the United States. (snip)

Trump was also asked if the Obama had committed any impeachable offenses. He said Obama could certainly be impeached for his executive action on immigration.

"Well, he certainly did something that was unconstitutional," Trump said. "Now, it depends on Justice (John) Roberts. If he wants to just curry favor in the Beltway like he did with Obamacare, because that's the only reason he did it. Because he knows he was wrong, but it certainly depends on what happens. I mean, I think certainly he could be impeached and certainly they could shut down the government."

The comments from Trump echo a tweet he sent, also from November 2014, in which he wrote, "Repubs must not allow Pres Obama to subvert the Constitution of the US for his own benefit & because he is unable to negotiate w/ Congress."

I especially love that Trump criticized Chief Justice Roberts' prior decisions and motives (to curry favor in the Beltway, instead of deciding based on the law and facts).

This guy is such a con man. That's why Trumpers love him. He's as two-faced as they are. They take whatever legal position to have to, to support themselves and anything they want to do.

Happy Valentine's Day! Are you thinking of popping the question tomorrow?

Or anticipating the question being popped to you?

Here's a romantic song from one of my favorite classic movies, to get you in the mood, while providing a little advice on your possible upcoming nuptials.

Russian Doll

A new Netflix original, and it's awesome! There are about 8 episodes. I don't know if it's a mini-series or will be a tv series with another season. But the last episode is an end, so if it ends there, it's fine.

A good watch from start to finish. Original (even though it has a premise similar to Groundhog Day...but on steroids), funny, sharp. raw. The lead actress, Natasha Lyonne, is perfect for that role. Amy Poehler was one of the writers, and that crazy wit shows.

Netflix hit another one out of the park.

So Montana Governor, Steve Bullock, might enter the Presidential race?

Just saw a news story on tv about it. He hasn't announced, and may not do it. But he might. A governor. This is getting interesting.

I know nothing about him. Montana. Protection of land, probably. Acknowledgement of climate change? Interesting. I wonder if he's a billionaire.

"It's official: The Trump tax cuts were a bust"

It’s official: The Trump tax cuts were a bust

Right before Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017, President Trump proclaimed:

“It’ll be fantastic for the middle-income people and for jobs, most of all ... I think we could go to 4%, 5% or even 6% [GDP growth], ultimately. We are back. We are really going to start to rock.”

A year later, it’s very clear that the tax cuts boosted gross domestic product and jobs a bit — and just for one year. Its effects are fading as U.S. GDP growth appears likely to weaken in 2019. The only thing that “rocked” were corporate profits and the stock market. And we’re facing trillion-dollar deficits as far as the eye can see.

Is anyone not gullible who has observed our economy over years, surprised by this? Of course not. TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS is, as G H W Bush said, VOODOO ECONOMICS.

And now, we will be paying the price with a slowing economy, which hurts the workers the most. When something real could have been done to really help the economy. I'm so spittin' mad about the this and so many other things. It's not just Trump responsible. This was a plan between both ends of the Republican Party, from Trumpers all the way to the established Republicans.

Well, well, well. Howard Schultz and Russia are business partners.


I was wondering if maybe Schultz was wanting to make a bid for a big Starbucks in the future Trump Moscow Hotel. That would be one explanation for his odd decision to throw his hat in the ring. When I ran across this:

In recent years, Starbucks has been making deals in Russia, where its outlets have proliferated. For all we know, there was a plan to place a Starbucks in Trump’s ill-fated Moscow Trump Tower to match the one in Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. Time for another Steele dossier!

Well, isn't that special?

Oh, Look! A song about Nancy Pelosi!




I'd say that's spot on!
