"Stand back and stand by."

Sounds like Trump has coined a new campaign slogan?

Congressional subpoenas of trump's taxes

have been successfully rebuffed to date. I'd bet a subpoena of the NYT would not be rebuffed or refused for the returns they have?

Herd Immunity

A "government mandate" ?

I mean, we can't opt out?

Memo to Trump

about paper ballots from U.K. "Russia Report'.....

"The mechanics of the UK's paper-based voting system makes direct interference difficult, so Russia has instead sought to influence voters *before* they cast their vote through the likes of state-owned media, bots and trolls, and leaks and hacks."

Trump defending the name of Fort Bragg

named after Braxton Bragg , perhaps the WORST General of the Civil War-seems fitting:

"Bragg is generally considered among the worst generals of the Civil War. Most of the battles in which he engaged ended in defeat. Bragg was extremely unpopular with both the men and the officers of his command, who criticized him for numerous perceived faults, including poor battlefield strategy, a quick temper, and overzealous discipline. Bragg has a generally poor reputation with historians, though some point towards the failures of Bragg's subordinates, especially Leonidas Polk—a close ally of Jefferson Davis and known enemy of Bragg—as more significant factors in the many Confederate defeats at Bragg's command. The losses which Bragg suffered are cited as principal factors in the ultimate defeat of the Confederacy."

GOP petulance at Judicial Committee Hearing

If Nadler won't/ can't have Gohmert and his disruptive buddy Collins removed, can he have their mics turned off?
Would getting all testimony on video rather than in person facilitate restraining the GOP puerile behavior?

Pelosi should restart an impeachment investigation

I know Dems are split on political efficacy but how do you ignore Bolton's allegations? These are essentially new charges in addition to reaffirming the Ukraine misconduct.
How do Dems say we see the criminality and misconduct but pursuing them now is inconvenient and possibly deleterious to our political future.There is a duty involved, oaths were sworn
Bolton must at least be called to testify immediately if the Dems are to retain the moral high ground. Force Trump to delay and deny, it can only serve to discredit him.

Biden debate strategy?

Considerations:

Biden is a better debater, you would think he'd want as many as possible? Logically Trump would avoid debating but it's Trump and his ego and illusions in play here.
OTOH, with a big lead in the polls, why give Trump a chance to get lucky if JB makes an unfortunate comment?
How do we get a fact check embedded in the debate, can only help JB?

Yesterday Trump asked to add a fourth debate, IMHO, JB should agree only if he gets a fact check concession.
Would not be surprised if we get zero debates after months of Trump posturing, don't really believe he wants to get in the ring with JB.

Don't Dems now have a duty

to start another impeachment investigation based on the Xi charges outlined in the Bolton book?

Maybe the Govs should call Trump's bluff?

"President Donald Trump threatened to mobilize the military to restore peace across the U.S. late Monday."
Really?

Anyone else see logistical problems if every Gov. accepts the help?

Every state is bending under the costs of increased security and the Moscow Mitch controlled fed paymasters are denying them more help. Surely the states might welcome not having the burden of huge increases in cop overtime. And to be honest, from what I've seen, cops aren't that proficient at crowd control. Waive the "posse comitatus" issues once so important to the RWNJ and let Trump deal with it, says I.
Just maybe the military might grow a pair and do the right thing.
