He Did Nothing
Author: Raine    Date: 06/29/2020 13:12:32

This morning I don't even know where to begin. Just this past Thursday, I wrote a blog titled "Ain't no Low too Low". It's here.

Just last Thursday, the occupants' campaign was using Nazi propaganda to target protesters. It barely made news because by late Friday night the NYT was reporting that Russia was putting bounties on the lives of our American troops in Afghanistan. That's bad enough but it turned out that the White House knew this information for months.

MONTHS.

They did nothing about it. Over the weekend the occupant of the White House retweeted a video that shows a supporter yelling "white power". It seems like that awful incident was a distraction from what we all woke up to this morning. It confirmed the worst.


Troops died
Russian bounties offered to Taliban-linked militants to kill coalition forces in Afghanistan are believed to have resulted in the deaths of several U.S. service members, according to intelligence gleaned from U.S. military interrogations of captured militants in recent months.

Several people familiar with the matter said it was unclear exactly how many Americans or coalition troops from other countries may have been killed or targeted under the program. U.S. forces in Afghanistan suffered a total of 10 deaths from hostile gunfire or improvised bombs in 2018, and 16 in 2019. Two have been killed this year. In each of those years, several service members were also killed by what are known as “green on blue” hostile incidents by members of Afghan security forces, which are sometimes believed to have been infiltrated by the Taliban.


I barely have editorial words for this news. I woke up and found myself out of breath not just because this happened, but because we somehow actually found it out. This isn't even the tip of the iceberg, I can say that with confidence.

He did nothing when Putin paid to kill our soldiers.




The entire response from Steve Schmidt is here. It is a must watch/listen.

This is the very definition of high crimes, imo.

And it's dereliction of duty FROM the CiC

Anne just went to the hospital this morning. Couldn't get from the bedroom to the living room and by the time the EMTs got here she was pretty much non-responsive.

Now. Now is when that oath kicks in.

Only a military coup can save us now. I'd rather have the Joint Chiefs run the country until the election.

Martial law, curfew, and wear your mask or get a ride to the stockade would curb coronavirus pretty quickly, too.

Good morning, bloggers!!!

I will keep TrojanRabbit and Mrs. Rabbit in my thoughts and prayers.

Scoopester, I mentioned your name for the Mi Sheberiach (healing prayer) at my synagogue's online service.

We may be separated by miles, but I am wishing everyone here the best in these challenging times.

In some good news, SCOTUS has stroke down Louisiana's controversial abortion law in a 5-4 ruling.

The majority opinion was penned by Justice Stephen Breyer, who wrote that the majority "consequently hold that the Louisiana statute is unconstitutional."

He added later: "The evidence also shows that opposition to abortion played a significant role in some hospitals' decisions to deny admitting privileges."

The ruling continues a trend of Roberts siding with liberals in major cases. He previously has upheld the program allowing undocumented immigrants who came into the US as children to remain and sided with opinion that extended anti-discrimination protections to LGBTQ workers.

I have not heard much from conservative media on the story about the Russian bounties on American troops.

If Trump and Pence did not know, we have a level of gross incompetence in the White House in this matter (as well as myriads of others.) However, I do not find Trump's claims of ignorance credible. I am amused that Liz Cheney is coming out against Trump on this.

Mornin..

The last opinion was the CFPB one. Basically affirms that the President can remove the head of the agency & that the clause in the CFPL that blocks it from happening is unconstitutional based on separation of powers.

We absolutely NEED to take the senate back in November!

Hello everyone. I'm mildly shocked that noted Trump boot fellater, Lenny Curry is going with a mask mandate. Considering that the convention is coming to town next month and none of those ding-dongs will mask up. I know they will insist that the rentboys they hire use condoms.

It about time they cracked down on the hate speech disguised as tRump support.

And on an unrelated note, Cirque de Solei is filing for bankruptcy as another casualty of not being able to do shows because of Covid-19.

This one may come back to bite tRump in the neck, if you catch my drift
