Conservative radio host wishes for a 'nice school shooting' to distract from impeachment

Source: Washington Post

As Chuck Bonniwell welcomed listeners to his Colorado talk-radio show back from a break just after 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, he laughed as he introduced a segment discussing the “never-ending impeachment of Donald Trump.”
“You know,” he said, “you wish for a nice school shooting" to interrupt the nonstop impeachment coverage.


His wife and co-host Julie Hayden immediately jumped in and cut him off.
“No, no, don’t even — don’t even say that,” she said. “No, don’t even say that. Don’t call us, Chuck didn’t say that."

The radio station said the “Chuck & Julie” show would be replaced by former White House aide Sebastian Gorka’s “America First” program starting Thursday.

McConnell: 'I was not given an explanation' for Ukraine aid delay

Source: The Hill

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he was not provided an explanation for why the Trump administration held up aid to Ukraine when he pressed senior officials on the matter over the summer.

"I was not given an explanation," McConnell told reporters Tuesday as the congressional furor grew over President Trump's interactions with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

McConnell said he spoke to Secretary of Defense Mark Esper and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo twice about the matter without receiving clarification for the delay in $391 million in aid to Ukraine.

"I was very actively involved in advocating [for] the aid. I talked to the secretary of Defense, the secretary of State once," he said.

Turtle throws Trump under the mini-bus. No references to inter agency reviews or Euros paying their fair share.

Do you remember when they invited him to trash President Obama?



Pelosi should invite Angela Merkel to speak.

He and Comey blew up FBI policy by trashing Hillary. Trump congratulated Comey on camera for that.

Appreciate if you will, but don’t forget. The enemy of an enemy is not necessarily a friend.

This is so simple and apparent that posting about it is almost insulting, BUT---

This entire White House/DOJ/FBI/FOX cluster is a Republican circular firing squad swirling in the afterbirth of a corrupt administration conceived in espionage and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created evil, so grab whatever you can. No Democrats are targeted except Candidate Clinton’s Ghost.

Everything the Republicans say about each other, excluding the self serving attacks on Mueller, is true.

New Era Cap reaches severance agreement with workers, will close plant at end of March

Source: Buffalo News

Soon, the manufacture of nearly all of those caps will be outsourced to companies in China, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Haiti. The move is part of what New Era officials describe as a shift in the company's business model: Long a hatmaker, the 99-year-old New Era is now stepping away of the manufacturing business and fashioning itself as a branding and marketing company. New Era sells caps, apparel and accessories around the world, and operates more as a fashion brand (think Nike or Under Armour, but smaller) than as a manufacturer.

This is in the district of the Dishonorable Chris Collins. They voted for the Impotus who promised to stop this stuff. New Era's contract with MLB required caps manufactured in the USA. All others will be outsourced to slave labor markets overseas.

Assuming arguendo,*45 is guilty of espionage, obstruction etc; what punishment would fit the crime?

I’m opposed to the death penalty as a matter of principle. Not to rush to judgement, but a life sentence seems appropriate.
