"You know, the American people have the transcript of the President's call and . . ."

No, Vice President Pence, the American people do not have the transcript of the President's call. You have misspoken.

Pence this morning answering a question about his involvement in the extortion scandal:


"You know, the American people have the transcript of the President's call and . . ."

"And for people who have questions, again, they can look at the transcript."


Reporters have to ask Pence when Trump will release the transcript. They have to ask Trump when he will release the transcript. They have to ask the gutless defenders in Congress and elsewhere when will Trump release the transcript. Then when they play dumb about 'already released', say No, we mean the one hidden away, when will you release the full transcript so "the American people have the transcript"?

It's not just semantics or technicalities, it's cover-up and normalizing lies and deceit.

Of course, there is much more to the extortion scandal, a great deal more evidence from many sources of a wide conspiracy of pressure and bribery. But don't let them get away with perpetuating false claims about facts to manipulate public opinion, dammit!

Mitt Romney operates a secret Twitter account where he defends himself against critics, slams Trump

Mitt Romney operates a secret Twitter account where he defends himself against critics and slams Trump's policies

Mitt Romney admitted that he operates a secret Twitter account where he slams President Donald Trump's policies and defends himself against critics.

Slate's Ashley Feinberg uncovered an account which operated under the handle @qaws9876, and went by the name Pierre Delecto. The account, which has since been made private, joined Twitter in July 2011, one month after Romney announced his presidential campaign.

According to screenshots of the account provided by Slate, Delecto's Twitter activity involved defending Romney against critics, slamming Trump's policies including his decision to withdraw US troops from Syria, and liking dozens of tweets from official Mitt Romney pages.

Romney, one of few Republicans in Congress who has openly criticized Trump, admitted that he operates a "lurker" account on Twitter to The Atlantic's McKay Coppins in a profile published by the outlet on Sunday.

"Why Can't A Democrat Be More Like A Republican?"

Friday, October 18, 2019

Why Can't A Democrat Be More Like A Republican?

Every Never Trumper blissfully pretending the Republican party isn't what it is:

Democrats are irrational, that's all there is to that!
There heads are full of cotton, hay, and rags!
They're nothing but exasperating, irritating
Vacillating, calculating, agitating
Maddening and infuriating hags!

Republicans are so honest, so thoroughly square;
Eternally noble, historic'ly fair;
Who, when you win, will always give your back a pat
Well, why can't a Democrat be like that?
Why does ev'ryone do what the others do?
Can't a Democrat learn to use her head?
Why do they do ev'rything their mothers do?
Why don't they grow up- well, like their father instead?
Why can't a Democrat take after a Republican?
Republicans are so pleasant, so easy to please;
Whenever you are with them, you're always at ease

Subpoenas issued in impeachment inquiry following blocking of ambassador deposition

By Jeremy Herb, Katelyn Polantz and Manu Raju, CNN

Updated 6:35 PM ET, Tue October 8, 2019

(CNN)House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff on Tuesday called the State Department's blocking testimony of a key witness "strong evidence of obstruction" of Democrats' impeachment investigation, and the move prompted House Democrats to issue a subpoena in response.

The State Department on Tuesday directed US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland not to testify before Congress, scrambling Democrats' impeachment investigation and raising questions about whether they will be able to obtain testimony from other witnesses. But Schiff's sharp response to Sondland's absence is a sign of the escalating impeachment fight between the White House and Democrats.

"The failure to produce this witness, the failure to produce these documents, we consider yet additional strong evidence of obstruction of the constitutional functions of Congress," Schiff told reporters.
In addition to blocking Sondland's testimony, Schiff said the ambassador indicated he had text messages or emails on a personal device provided to the State Department that State was withholding from Congress.

The subpoena issued Tuesday evening demanded Sondland turn over documents by Monday, October 14, and appear for a deposition on Wednesday, October 16.

Sorry about the genocidal betrayal, Kurdish allies

Goldy@GoldyHA

Sorry about the genocidal betrayal, Kurdish allies, but white rural American men feel disrespected, so we had no choice but putting a lunatic in charge.
