President Donald J. Trump is a signed, card-carrying rage tweeter. Normally, when he’s rage tweeting about the Russia investigation, it’s easy to look past his grammar because it’s amusing to see him folding under the pressure of the investigation in real time.

But early Monday morning, before the president donned his kaftan made from the hides of infant seals and even before he drank his full chalice of goat’s blood, he was up angry-tweeting in a full sweaty rage. Also, because this tweet went out in the morning, presumably he didn’t have time to wake his Russian hooker to see if she could spellcheck it for him, so the president tweeted this:
>“Democrats can’t find a Smocking Gun tying the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony. No Smocking Gun...No Collusion.” @FoxNews That’s because there was NO COLLUSION. So now the Dems go to a simple private transaction, wrongly call it a campaign contribution,

Yep, that’s a presidential tweet that will be archived to prove the tipping point of America’s fall. The fact that the president misspelled “smoking” as “smocking” TWICE proves that he doesn’t know how to spell smoking. Can we really blame him? Technically, its a seven letter word that includes a suffix and requires the dropping of the “e” to add the “ing” and while that’s not the part that he flubbed, these words can be difficult.

Let’s not get caught on the president’s inability to spell. What’s more shocking is that the president is fully admitting to paying for porn actress Stormy Daniels services calling it a simple private transaction. For those keeping score, the shifting rationale on payment for Stormy’s services has shifted from there is no there there to there is a there there and she smacked my ass with a rolled-up Forbes magazine!

Trump is getting ready to fold like a lawn chair that can’t spell.

Ammon Bundy breaks with Trump on anti-migrant rhetoric: ‘It’s all fear-based’

Along with his father, Cliven, and brother, Ryan, Bundy became an ascendant figure on the right after a long-standing land dispute with federal authorities sparked an armed standoff at the family ranch in Nevada in 2014. Since then, the Bundys have regularly clashed with the government both inside and outside the courtroom, making them figureheads of the anti-Washington energy that also propelled Trump to the White House.

“It’s all fear-based, and frankly it’s based upon selfishness — ‘I’m going to lose something by them coming in,’ ”Ammon Bundy said of the anti-migrant rhetoric.

On Tuesday night, an unlikely critic took President Trump to task for his comments portraying members of the migrant caravan now massed in Tijuana as “criminals” and “gang members.” In a video posted on Facebook, Ammon Bundy, the anti-government militia leader, pushed back against Trump’s heated rhetoric.

“He has basically called them all criminals and said they’re not coming in here. It seems that there’s been this group stereotype,” Bundy said in a 17-minute clip. “But what about those who have come here for reasons of need? ... What about the fathers, the mothers, the children, who have come here and are willing to go through the process to apply for asylum so they can come into this country and benefit from not having to be oppressed continually by criminals?"

Don't bother, this is a common Trumptard tactic. "You're pointing out that a right-winger is criticizing Trump. Whoa, that means you love him now and he's your favorite person ever?" No, retard, we're just reporting the news. Seriously, look at how the article made no comment on what they think of Ammon Bundy, instead electing to state the facts and what does the first response say? That "leftists" are "holding him up as an idol."

Frankly it's probably the same person doing it across the entire board. Laughably transparent that this is his only tactic.
>I lack reading comprehension and prefer to spin my own narrative.
You are an idiot, just reeeeeeeeemember that.
>>Frankly it's probably the same person doing it across the entire board. Laughably transparent that this is his only tactic.
>Everyone disagreeing with me is the same person
Imagine being so dumb that this is what you got out of the post.

Fox News Host Tucker Carlson, who regularly praises Donald Trump on his show "Tucker Carlson Tonight," bashed the president in a rare interview with Swiss Publication Die Weltwoche.

On Tuesday, during an interview with Urs Gehriger, Die Weltwoche’s editor, Tucker admitted that he “hates” when Trump boasts and unleashed a variety of insults criticizing the Commander-in-Chief.

“It’s not my culture, I didn’t grow up like that,” he said, explaining his distaste for boasting.

After being asked whether be believed Trump has kept the promises he made during his campaign, Carlson responded: “No.”

“His chief promises were that he would build the wall, defund planned parenthood, and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things,” the notorious Fox News host continued, before attributing the reason to perhaps Trump’s inability to keep focus.

“I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus,” he continued. “I don’t think Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him.”

When asked to elaborate, Carlson didn’t hold back on his scathing remarks about the president, whom he publicly supports on a nightly basis.

“It’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things,” Carlson said, referring to the campaign promises he mentioned earlier. “[He] knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do.”

I think there are more reasons than the ones you listed to not post your tax returns. Privacy for one. Not revealing proprietary business information for another. Same reason if you ask Palantir and other private corporations to open their books to you, they won't
So this is what it's like seeing rats flee a sinking ship
Make arguements that aren't just nuh-huh or whataboutisms if you don't want to be dismissed.

The public has the right to know where Trump's money is and the clear conflicts of interest he's hiding. Only those who enable corruption would not want to see his taxes be made public.
subliminal foreshadowing, everything happens according to plan and on schedule
Fun fact Nixon was the first candidate to release his tax returns. We all know how that worked out.

Maria Butina, an accused Russian spy who nuzzled up to the National Rifle Association before the 2016 election, appears to have reached a plea deal with the Justice Department, according to a new court filing in her criminal case.

Her attorneys and prosecutors filed a two-page request on Monday for a "change of plea" hearing before a federal judge as soon as Tuesday. "The parties have resolved this matter," the filing in DC federal court said Monday morning. Butina's case was brought by federal prosecutors in DC and not by Robert Mueller's team in the special counsel's office.

A plea hearing has not yet been set. The notice Monday comes after several weeks of hints that Butina might negotiate an end to her case -- and after bumps in the case where federal prosecutors, at the height of attention on Russia's influence in American politics, accused the former graduate student of infiltrating Republican organizations in order to advance Russian interests.

Until now, Butina, 30, maintained her innocence and insisted she was simply a foreign student interested in bettering relations between the US and Russia. Butina previously pleaded not guilty to one count of conspiracy and a second count of acting as an agent of a foreign government when she was arrested in July.
Her case first became public amid a furor of US-Russia developments. She was arrested two days after the Justice Department separately indicted Russian military intelligence for hacking the Democratic Party, and her case became public the same day President Donald Trump met with President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, and declined to endorse US intelligence findings that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema's lead over Republican Rep. Martha McSally in Arizona's Senate race grew Sunday as some GOP figures continued to distance themselves from President Donald Trump's claims of misconduct.

Sinema led by 30,310 votes as of 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, according to the Arizona secretary of state's office. That puts her ahead by 1.4 percentage points with more than 2.1 million ballots counted.

On Saturday, Sinema campaign manager Andrew Piatt continued to express a belief that there are more Democratic ballots left to be counted than Republican ballots.

"McSally can hope for a miracle tomorrow night but the data show it won't happen," he said in a statement.

As votes continue being counted, Republicans are divided over how to handle the close election.

Arizona GOP elected officials, including McSally's camp, have defended the lengthy process and said the state must make sure every ballot is counted.
President Donald Trump and the national and state Republican parties, meanwhile, have cast doubt on the election's legitimacy -- even though there are no allegations or evidence to support those claims.

In a shift on Sunday, however, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee backed away from his own group's fear-mongering about the race's outcome.

I really believe Beto could be the next Kennedy. He has the power. And this time they won't be able to kill him because presidents have so much more protection.
Beto will win.
He was running against Ted Cruz, one of the most unlikable people in the GOP. Put him up against any other candidate and that election would have been a landslide in favor of the GOP candidate.
A longtime incumbent Republican only just barely managing to win against a no-name Democrat in Texas of all states is nothing to celebrate. The GOP should be terrified that Texas may seemingly be turning purple in the near future, because they can't win without those votes; meanwhile the Democratic equivalent, California, has only gotten more and more solidly blue and that probably won't change anytime soon.
The Texas election had a very high turnout, Republicans were very willing to vote for Cruz.
Man, this news never stops being satisfying.

Mexico refused to pay for President Donald Trump’s wall, and now it appears American taxpayers may never have to either.

A spending bill to keep the federal government running past Sept. 30 will not contain money for Trump’s biggest presidential campaign promise. Republican congressional leaders are instead postponing the fight over a wall along the southwestern border until after the November midterm elections — when Democrats will have more influence and be weeks away from taking control of the House.

“This is the GOP Congress giving the president a big middle finger,” said Stan Collender, a budget expert who spent years working for House and Senate committees. “It’s the Republican Congress saying, ‘We’re going to make it more difficult for you to shut down the government because it’s not good for us, even if it’s good for you.’”

While most Americans are not particularly interested in a border wall, Trump’s base is, and will likely see his readiness to sign yet another spending bill that lacks wall money as a broken promise.

“There is a strong segment of Trump voters that’s demoralized,” said William Gheen, the head of the hard-line group Americans for Legal Immigration. “Because there’s no wall, illegal crossings are at a new peak, possibly higher than Obama levels, and the Republican House spent its time on an amnesty compromise bill rather than enforcement like we were promised by Trump.”

Wouldn't it be very hard to build a wall on the US-Mexican border since it's mountainous?
They did with Samuel J. Tilden's campaign in 1876. He lost by one Electoral Vote. Thankfully, Hayes did pass some Civil Service reforms, but were minuscule compared to the Pendleton Act of 1883. In the end, The Dems and Reps are too corrupt to collaborate. Third Parties being at the debates, like what Ross Perot got to do in 1992.

Some people believe in the phrase "Fight fire with fire."

Isn't the price for the wall like a fifth of how much we spend annually on illegal aliens? I heard something about this, but don't have enough information.
The Great Wall of China was built in mountainous areas, so it would not be impossible for that reason. However, there are much better things to spend federal funds on, such as other infrastructure improvements, and funding Social Security and Medicare (which every employee pays into).
Much of the border is also desert, which is hard to build on. It can definitely be done, but the cost of building, maintaining and manning the wall would be way too high when compared to how effective it would be (not very)
So where's that wall, Trumpies?

Sounds like his cowardice is another thing he has in common with Trump.
Brazil is financially in a bad place. Not hosting talks isn't cowardice, sounds like a unnecessary expense. Let Europe host it or better yet China or India since they are 2 of the countries in the Paris Accord meeting their goals for co2.
Different here.
No, that's the reason he gave you. And you believed him for some reason. Are you a fan? It might be true but probably not. Hosting it would just look bad politically for him, so that's the main reason. That's pretty much cowardice. Too pussy to take a risk politically.

The House GOP campaign arm suffered a major hack during the 2018 election, exposing thousands of sensitive emails to an outside intruder, according to three senior party officials.

The email accounts of four senior aides at the National Republican Congressional Committee were surveilled for several months, the party officials said. The intrusion was detected in April by an NRCC vendor, who alerted the committee and its cybersecurity contractor. An internal investigation was initiated and the FBI was alerted to the attack, said the officials, who requested anonymity to discuss the incident.

However, senior House Republicans — including Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) — were not informed of the hack until POLITICO contacted the NRCC on Monday with questions about the episode. Rank-and-file House Republicans were not told, either.

Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio), who served as NRCC chairman this past election cycle, did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

Committee officials said they decided to withhold the information because they were intent on conducting their own investigation, and feared that revealing the hack would compromise efforts to find the culprit.

"We don't want to get into details about what was taken because it's an ongoing investigation," said a senior party official. "Let's say they had access to four active accounts. I think you can draw from that."

>implying it was russia
doesnt quite make sense that a state would order a hack on emails because they didnt want to do anything with them.
either it was black mail, or more probably, they were hacked by a non state entity, like some sort of democrat hacktivist group, and they didnt find what they were looking for
Except that's exactly what they did in 2016. They hacked both, the Democrats and the Republicans. They released only Democratic communications and kept Republican ones to themselves as leverage.
It seems like everything they accuse Democrats of doing, or flail about as failure, is either perpetrated or happens to them.
Just like in North Carolina where they push forward with a giant voter suppression scheme to protect against 'voter fraud', and the Republicans are caught doing Electoral fraud.

Donald Trump is getting worried for the “first time in his life,” one of the legendary journalists who help exposed the scandal that led to former President Richard Nixon’s resignation has warned.

Carl Bernstein, who worked with Bob Woodward in the 1970s to uncover the Watergate scandal, appeared on Sunday to discuss the allegations against Trump revealed through a sentencing memo written by federal prosecutors for the president’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen. The document, which references Trump as “Individual 1,” says that the president led the criminal conspiracy to pay off two women with whom he allegedly had extramarital affairs.

“It certainly looks like they are the kind of offenses that would call for impeachment hearings into the conduct of the president of the United States,” Bernstein told host. “There’s something much more important than just impeachment going on, and that is the fact that Donald Trump for the first time in his life is cornered,” he said.

The journalist pointed out that the former businessman “always could bully his way out of a corner” when he was managing his private company. “He always could buy his way out, cheat his way out. He is boxed in by Mueller, and the people around him know that he is."

Thus far, thirty-three people and three companies have been indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe into whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election. Mueller’s final report is expected soon, and the most recent allegations have led many politicians to suggest the president could be impeached, or even criminally indicted and jailed.

“It’s clear that Mueller is now connecting the dots between a massive obstruction intended to hide the truth about the Trump campaign, Trump, his business organization, and his family from the investigators."

BEIJING (Reuters) - Police have detained dozens of churchgoers and leaders of one of China’s most prominent Protestant “house” churches, congregation members and activists said, in the latest government action against unregistered religious groups.

Teams of police and state security officials in the southwestern city of Chengdu came to the homes of leaders and members of the Early Rain Covenant Church late on Sunday and detained them, according to church announcements sent to members and passed to Reuters by churchgoers and activists.

“The time has come. O, Lord! Did you not establish this church for this very purpose?” the church said in one of its announcements.

“We will wait for Thee, as one keeping vigil waits for daybreak.”

More than 100 people are believed to have been detained, said a church elder, who declined to be identified.

Neither the Chengdu nor national-level Public Security Ministries responded to faxed requests for comment.

China’s constitution guarantees religious freedom, but since President Xi Jinping took office six years ago, the government has tightened restrictions on religions seen as a challenge to the authority of the ruling Communist Party.

>Palm Beach County Courthouse

>June 30, 2008

>Jeffrey Edward Epstein appeared at his sentencing dressed comfortably in a blue blazer, blue shirt, jeans and gray sneakers. His attorney, Jack Goldberger, was at his side.

>At the end of the 68-minute hearing, the 55-year-old silver-haired financier — accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls — was fingerprinted and handcuffed, just like any other criminal sentenced in Florida.

>But inmate No. W35755 would not be treated like other convicted sex offenders in the state of Florida, which has some of the strictest sex offender laws in the nation.

>Ten years before the #MeToo movement raised awareness about the kid-glove handling of powerful men accused of sexual abuse, Epstein’s lenient sentence and his extraordinary treatment while in custody are still the source of consternation for the victims he was accused of molesting when they were minors.

>Beginning as far back as 2001, Epstein lured a steady stream of underage girls to his Palm Beach mansion to engage in nude massages, masturbation, oral sex and intercourse, court and police records show. The girls — mostly from disadvantaged, troubled families — were recruited from middle and high schools around Palm Beach County. Epstein would pay the girls for massages and offer them further money to bring him new girls every time he was at his home in Palm Beach, according to police reports.

Nearly two years ago, in the first month of Donald J. Trump’s presidency, I touched off a firestorm by telling the public what our Intelligence Community—publicly attacked as Nazis by our 45th president on the eve of his inauguration—felt about their new commander-in-chief. As I tweeted, passing on the viewpoint of a senior IC official: “He will die in jail.”

This utterance outraged the president’s defenders and was considered outré, even though everybody in the IC I’ve encountered who’s familiar with the Trump case—not a short list—feels similarly. America’s spies before Trump took his oath of office concluded that the Kremlin helped elect the president, and the IC, which deals in facts rather than spin, has never wavered on this point.

Simply put, our president has most likely committed crimes, above all conspiring with a hostile power to boost his 2016 campaign (including seeking financial gain from that unfriendly foreign country), which none of his predecessors did, so it’s increasingly likely that Trump will accrue punishments never visited on any American president.

Just how much hot water the president and his retinue are in came into focus last week with multiple bombshells dropped by the Department of Justice. First, the Special Counsel on Tuesday informed a Federal court that Michael Flynn, the president’s short-lived first national security adviser, had decisively flipped on Team Trump.

The facts aren't out yet since Mueller has them. But given what's been happening, do you really think Trump will be cleared of all wrongdoing? This is as unlikely now as it has ever been.
