Parading around
Author: Raine    Date: 02/07/2018 14:10:50

What is in store for us today?

Who knows.

I am still in shock over the news of a military parade that the clown wants to hold in DC. It's sheer insanity.
The White House has spent the better part of the past 24 hours arguing that President Trump didn’t actually mean things he said: that he didn't actually want a government shutdown and that he was just joking about that whole Democrats-who-didn’t-applaud-me-committed-treason thing.

But now we find out Trump was very serious about something that might have seemed like so much Trumpian hot air: a military parade.

The Washington Post’s Greg Jaffe and Philip Rucker report that Trump has set planning in motion to make his long-expressed vision a reality. The directive was made during a meeting Jan. 18 with top generals in a Pentagon room reserved for top-secret discussions.


I don't think the knows what Bastille day is about.

What wer have is a GOP that is parading this fool around pretending he's President when he's nothing more than a grifting fraud.

He can't be gone fast enough.

and

Raine

Morning

Caught part of Morning Joe and he was mentioning that the polls agree with tRump when it comes to immigrants and immigration. How the F are we losing the messaging war on any of this?! And how the F are people becoming normalized to nazi's and the KKK?!

I only heard it as I was passing through the living room, he did say something about "the latest" polls.

Wish I could too. Feel like we are really losing our country and I don't understand any of it. Apparently now even I'm considered an elitist with my dumpy little townhouse in the lower middle class neighborhood that is a mix of people.

That parade crap is just beyond nuts. If the Pentagon said no for the inauguration because DC street weren't built to drive a missile down the street, why are they changing now?!

Holy moly, Quincy Jones interview.
What’s stirred everything up? Is it all about Trumpism?
It’s Trump and uneducated rednecks. Trump is just telling them what they want to hear. I used to hang out with him. He’s a crazy motherfucker. Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him. I used to date Ivanka, you know.

Wait, really?
Yes, sir. Twelve years ago. Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter KidadaA former model and current designer, Kidada is the daughter of Jones and his ex-wife Peggy Lipton. Jones’s other daughter with Lipton is the actress Rashida Jones. Jones has five other children, with four other women. , said, “Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.” I said, “No problem. She’s a fine motherfucker.” She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.

Nope it shouldn't. In fact, you might get better performance and/or reduced power usage.

Oh that would be great! Decided I wanted to get the Sims4 and "Can I Run it" is telling me I need to update the driver and I chickened out last night cause I thought I was gonna blow up my laptop. Have no restore point to fix it either.

I read the entire interview. Jones is a bit of a narcissist himself, although not in a destructive way

So this is interesting.. some of the details are starting to come out about this budget agreement between McConnell and Schumer. CHIP would be fully funded for 10 years instead of 6 (tho unsure if it includes funding for rural health centers). It would also add a desperately needed $90b in disaster aid funding. And unwind some of the budget sequestration rules from recent years - meaning DoD would also get all of its funding, which isn't necessarily a good thing.

What it doesn't do is touch anything re: DACA or Dreamers, which is why Nancy Pelosi's holding the House floor indefinitely.

If only we can see Trump's hair blow off like when boarding a plane at his Putin like parade.

McConnell is making that a standaloner.

Also, the Debt ceiling is only raised for one year --

after the elections.

I don't trust McConnell and Repubs as far as I can throw them but I do know we all have to work back to being able to negotiate and compromise.

She's BADASS.

There's a shifting crowd of representatives around her, passing her stories from constituents to read. It's one of those great moments in politics that we'll probably be talking about 20 years from now (I hope).

John Kelly KNEW that he had a restraining order!

But a senior administration official said Kelly was previously aware of the 2010 protective order, which prevented Porter from getting a full security clearance.

Sanders declined to comment on the status of his security clearance. Sanders also said Porter wasn’t pressured by the White House to resign.

People close to Trump have been beset by allegations of sexual and physical impropriety since before the 2016 election.

During the campaign, then-manager Corey Lewandowski was charged with assaulting a reporter after he grabbed Breitbart correspondent Michelle Fields at a campaign rally. The charges were later dropped. POLITICO reported in December that Lewandowski slapped singer Joy Villa, a Trump supporter, on the behind at a Trump International Hotel party in Washington.

In the past few minutes the chair keeps trying to interrupt her and move on to the vote.

She's having none of it. Fucking glorious.
