BTRTN October 2017 Month in Review: The Beginning of the End?

The BTRTN monthly update, covering another dismal month in the Trump presidency.
http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2017/11/btrtn-october-2017-month-in-review.html

"But another bombshell was dropped at the end of October, and this one will not vanish so easily. This, of course, was the announcement of the first charges from the Mueller investigation. The Mueller news featured the indictments of Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort and protégé Rick Gates, and the even more stunning guilty plea by Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos that revealed something that looked mighty close to, well, collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Far from “wrapping up soon,” as the White House continues to insist, Mueller’s probe is clearly shifting into high gear. We’ll come back to that.

In between all those seismic events, with their wildly varying aftershocks, the month was characterized by the usual hallmarks of Trumpworld: the fitful path of lurching legislation (tax reform), the court bans of executive actions (travel and transgender bans), the meaningless pronouncements (opioids), continued outright failure (Puerto Rico) and distracting, unwinnable and callous fights with victims (Puerto Ricans, Niger attack widow). What was new this month was, finally, a chorus of noted Republicans giving voice to the failings of this Administration, specifically the embarrassment of President Donald Trump..."

A Call to Action for Election Day: Time to Turn Your Outrage into Votes - When We Vote, We Win

BTRTN asks you to get involved...and there are plenty of Democratic candidates that need your help next Tuesday:
http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2017/10/a-call-to-action-for-election-day-time.html

"Just 51 weeks ago, about 66 million Americans found out, to their horror that they would have to endure a Donald Trump presidency.

Since then, that horror has evolved to a tsunami of outrage as the Trump presidency has unfolded. Rallies, marches, demonstrations, debates of all kinds, on the Internet, in local bars, across family dinner tables, set off by countless inane tweets, America First madness, and Dark Age policies. Trump has dominated casual conversation, and if you are reading this, you have doubtless participated mightily in this rage-a-thon.

But until now, you have had precious little opportunity to translate that outrage into something tangible. That time has come. Here we are, days before Election Day, November 7, 2017. Time to cast some votes that will send a message to Donald Trump, to make sure he understands that his actions have consequences, and that outrage can and will translate into political might.

An off-off year election? No elections that “matter”? Wrong.

Your outrage means little if you do not work, at least a little, to fight back. Right now. And important elections are happening across the country...."

BTRTN: General Kelly? More Like General Kellyanne Conway

Yes, he is an honored General and we can feel great sorrow for his loss as a Gold Star parent. But there is absolutely no justification for General Kelly to commit deceitfully-based character assassination in an attempt to discredit a voice of opposition.

"Kelly then proceeded to execute a rare and raw public character assassination. He emphatically recounted a speech that the Congresswoman had given years before in which she allegedly used the occasion of a dedication of a new facility honoring two murdered FBI agents to make self-aggrandizing claims about her role in the funding of the building. With his taut military bearing, searing anger, and reputation for rock solid integrity, Kelly threw himself fully into the task of discrediting the Congresswoman, concluding by disparaging her as an “empty barrel.”

The only problem was the Kelly’s allegations were wholly inaccurate. A videotape of the Congresswoman’s remarks rapidly surfaced, in which there was not a single word of damning allegations made by Kelly. She had not used the occasion to claim that she was responsible for the funding. Indeed, she had singled out others for credit, including a number of Republicans."
