Can we sue for emotional distress....Class Action style?

"Trump during Fox News interview with Steve Hilton: "We are changing laws as rapidly as we can get them through the courts."

(Laws are supposed to be changed by Congress.)

I'm tired of people telling me I haven't gotten over Hillary losing when they still haven't gotten over Robert E. Lee losing and Obama winning, twice.

CANADA HATES T&#1071;&#9773;MP @POzzur 16 hours ago

An estimated 100,000 people gathered in the streets of London to protest Trump’s visit in July 2018.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if protests like this were organized in every major American city?

Digital Civil War review: a stark call to save American democracy

Peter Daou blames media and the political establishment for failing to combat dishonesty, hypocrisy … and Trump


Voltaire warned that “those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities”. In his new book, Peter Daou offers copious evidence that nothing has ever made that pernicious alchemy easier than the internet.

“Technology,” he writes, “has altered … the field of battle … The unrelenting toxicity of social media is a feature, not a bug, of digital warfare.” He also offers an important corollary: “Nothing in American life is more of a threat to our democracy than the Republican party’s lurch to the far right.”

Daou says he writes not as an historian but as “an eyewitness”. He has been a digital strategist for two Democratic presidential candidates – John Kerry in 2004 and Hillary Clinton in 2008 – but he thinks his earlier history is what makes him the perfect analyst for this conflict: he came of age as a Christian in Lebanon at the height of its own civil war.

Norman Ornstein was one the first Washington pundits to identify the big problem with the way the mainstream press deals with a sharply altered political universe, writing in 2014: “Insisting on equivalence as the mantra of mainstream journalism leaves the average voter at sea, unable to identify and vote against those perpetrating the problem. The public is left with a deeper disdain for all politics and all politicians.”

Daou strongly agrees. The “mainstream media and the political establishment”, he writes, have failed to “serve as a counterbalance to the dishonesty and hypocrisy poisoning American politics”. Or as progressive analyst Zerlina Maxwell put it, “there will be literal Nazis marching in the streets before the [mainstream media] realizes that calling for civility from both sides is stupid. Wait. Too late.”

Of course, there already were Nazis in the streets of Charlottesville two years ago, when marchers chanted “Jews will not replace us”.

"Freedom of the press and of expression is an important indicator of the state of a country's health. Let's not forget that one of the first things dictatorships do is remove freedom of the press or mask it, not leaving it free."

Donald Trump’s tyranny a central part of the modern presidency the Founding Fathers wouldn’t recognize: author


“The Constitution doesn’t describe anything like the modern presidency. But the Declaration of Independence does — the British monarchy, whose actions the Framers described as ‘absolute Tyranny.'”

There are more Republicans in Congress who believe Trump committed impeachable offenses. But they’re too cowardly to go public with it. Which means they’re too cowardly to be in Congress, and they should resign immediately. The quiet GOP are all accomplices. #ReadTheMuellerReport

The real reason Donald Trump is failing


In order to successfully finish his complete subversion of democracy, Donald Trump knows that he must control the Legislative and Judicial branches. While he has temporarily succeeded in filling the courts with inappropriate and unqualified judges on a multitude of levels, Trump has failed to achieve his ultimate goal. Despite the efforts of complicit Republicans in Congress, Trump has, so far, been unsuccessful in turning American democracy into a dictatorship. Kleptocracy? Absolutely. Kakistocracy? Sure. Dictatorship? Not yet.

Sure, an illegitimate president successfully appointed two justices to the Supreme Court, and Donald Trump likely believes that such actions have ensured his ability to rule over America for the remainder of his life – but he did not count on the uprising of the Resistance. Those individuals who were dumbstruck by Trump’s theft of the 2016 election have surpassed the stage of being flabbergasted and have long ago moved on to outraged. But instead of simply feeling numb, the Resistance has fought back and brought us to where we are today.

When a vast majority of the Republican Party agreed to side with Trump and sell out America, they likely believed that they would hold power in both chambers of Congress in order to avoid the necessary investigations into their misdeeds. Given the inherited electoral bias achieved through gerrymandering and voter suppression, Republicans were not too far off on their belief that they could hold the House of Representatives for decades. However, they did not account for the utter disdain and outrage that many Americans felt following the 2016 election. The Resistance turned out to be much more than just a philosophy.

While many Democrats became complacent following two terms of President Obama, assuming their votes were not necessary to achieve success, the 2016 election became a real awakening to the necessity of voting. Democratic candidates received more than eight million more votes than Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections. Despite Trump’s ultimate goal of becoming a dictator for life, it appears that Americans are ready to stand up to his outrageous goals and will fight him at the ballot box.

Following Republican Justin Amash's words about Trump having engaged in impeachable activity, who will be the second Republican to break ranks?

Who will be that second hero, who will lead the new GOP once this Trump mess is behind us?

Come on Out!

Nicolle Wallace warns Donald Trump why the first GOP congressman to back impeachment changes everything


MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace explained the significance of Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) taking to Twitter to make the case for impeaching President Donald Trump.

The “Deadline: White House” host, who was a top Republican strategist prior to her career in broadcast journalism, offered her thoughts on the importance of impeachment proceedings officially becoming bipartisan.

“And then there was one,” Wallace reported. “One Republican member of Congress willing to say out loud what any honest broker who’s taken the time to read the Mueller report would say, that Donald Trump’s conduct as described by Robert S. Mueller meets the threshold of impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors.”

“In any other moment in history this would not be a debatable conclusion, but in this moment with this president … this one relatively unknown congressman has done something extraordinary, by reading the report that explicitly says Robert Mueller could not exonerate Donald Trump on obstruction, Republican Congressman Justin Amash came to his own conclusions, which he tweeted over the weekend,” she explained.

Trump transition team member heaps praise on Justin Amash — and calls him more of a Republican than the president
\

Sarah K. Burris SARAH K. BURRIS

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) enraged followers of President Donald Trump when he announced Robert Mueller’s report was a “tipping point” for him. Amash was the first Republican to break ranks and fellow members of his party are now coming after him.

Former Trump transition team member J.W. Verret told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin that it’s nice to have someone out on the limb with him.

“People asked me who was going to be the first to stand up. I predicted Amash,” Verret said. “Not because he’s not a real Republican, frankly he’s more Republican than Kevin McCarthy and Donald Trump put together. [He’s got] a 100 percent rating with Heritage [Foundation], with the American Conservative Union, the NRA. He’s far more conservative than they are. He came in on the tea party revolution. He’s just an honorable guy. He read the report and spoke up about how the emperor has no clothes here. He told the truth when nobody else would.”

Republican consultant Ana Navarro agreed, saying that many Republicans have left the party for the Trump party.

“Republican qualification is measured not by principles or convictions or beliefs but by absolute loyalty to Donald Trump,” she said Monday. “Today we have less Republicans in Congress. But they are far more loyal to Donald Trump. Donald Trump made sure that was the case. He targeted and attacked Republicans who dared descend against him in 2018. Anybody who spoke up against him and criticized him and found fought with him and spoke truth about him, and they lost primaries.”

The host quoted John Boehner who famously announced it was no longer the Republican Party. “It’s the party of Trump,” he said.
