71 thoughts on “Barack and Kamala”

  1. wise words of warning from transcript of hillary’s speech last night:

    Remember in 2016 when Trump asked: “What do you have to lose?” Well, now we know: our health, our jobs, even our lives. Our leadership in the world and, yes, our post office. As Michelle Obama and Bernie Sanders warned us on Monday: If Trump is re-elected, it will get even worse. My friends, we need unity now more than ever.
    […]
    Remember: Joe and Kamala can win 3 million more votes and still lose. Take. It. From. Me. We need numbers so overwhelming Trump can’t sneak or steal his way to victory

  2. No more Goodyear.  Does that mean tRUMP wants to re-tire?   
    I don’t do the Twitter, but I’m wondering if the toddler tyrant’s meltdown that Jamie mentioned was the result of Obama’s speech?  Did he even know that Barak evicerated him?  If a woman uses big words, his fragile ego can’t handle it. Was it Kamala that set him off?

  3. Yep, if it’s not close, they can’t cheat.  They’ll still try, of course, but cuff SFB and walk him out of the WH. Go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

    How many victims will tRUMP be responsible for by Election Day?

    54 days until Texans get to vote.

  4. “Today, I struggle with speech but I have not lost my voice. America needs all of us to speak out, even when you have to fight to find the words.”

  5. A few days ago I replied to a Biden campaign tweet about how Biden hats were made in America.  I pointed out that they are also made in union shops.  That got a look from the @Biden campaign.  Surprisingly, SFB gave me a look too.  I am not sure how much of his tweets are by others, but at least one set of eyes is pro union.

  6. We need to bring it home that sane GOP voters can go back to being GOP voters after they help save the country by voting Biden this time around.

     

  7. from nancy’s transcript of her speech:

    We have sent the Senate bills to protect our dreamers, to advance LGBTQ equality, to prevent
    gun violence, to preserve our planet for future generations, and even more.
    All of this is possible for America. Who is standing in the way? Mitch McConnell and Donald
    Trump.
    Our nation faces the worst health and economic catastrophe in our history: more than 5 million
    Americans are infected by the coronavirus. Over 170,000 have died. The serious, science based
    action in the Heroes Act we sent the Senate three months ago is essential to safeguard lives,
    livelihoods and the life of our democracy.
    And who is standing in the way? Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump. 
  8. BiD — yes, Man Baby was live tweeting responses during the speeches last night. It’d almost be better if he drank, then we could just say he was drunk. But he does this stuff stone cold sober, which is scarier.

  9. Some one on twitter pointed to a Brit Hume comment that it all the emphasis on voting made it look like the Democrats weren’t certain they could get their people out to vote.  My thought is that what Democrats want is a vote so over whelming  that it buries the Republican party and drives a stake in the heart of Trumpism. Last night wasn’t just an ordinary political speech it was a call to war.

  10. Sturg,
    There is always a friendly doctor willing to prescribe medication to keep your nerves calm. 
    I think the important thing is his behavior is as if he were impaired by alcohol, a serious problem if he isn’t drunk or stoned.

  11. Jack, again according to Casler, who worked closely with him on Beauty pageants and the apprentice he did adderall and even coke constantly, which is responsible for all the sniffling and for having to wear diapers.

  12. colbert last night:

    “Of course, this week marks 100 years since women gained the right to vote, and tonight there was a powerhouse lineup of speakers including Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris. It is going to be tough for the Republicans to match that. All they’ve got are Ivanka, Betsy DeVos and a disturbing sculpture Eric Trump calls Lady Dad.”

    and fallon observed: 

    “That’s like Trump’s entire list of enemies. The White House must have restrained him tonight like he was Hannibal Lecter.”

  13. About the call to war, In war  normal silly crap that the Susan Sarandon types pull won’t be tolerated.  Especially with the move of suburban Republicans into the party. 
    Jack

  14. Sturge
    I guess my point was it is the behavior that matters no matter if it is from booze , drugs , or brain damage.
    That any Republican would tolerate such behavior disqualifies them from serving in public office.

  15. cbsnews:

    Washington — Federal prosecutors in New York announced Thursday that Steve Bannon, President Trump’s former White House chief strategist, has been indicted along with three others for their roles in defrauding donors related to a $25 million fundraising campaign to build a wall along the southern border.

    Acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Audrey Strauss said Bannon, Brian Kolfage, Andrew Badolato and Timothy Shea were arrested Thursday morning. Bannon, 66, is set to appear before a federal judge in Manhattan.

  16. So the New York office is still in revolt, looks like Barr needs to fire a few more prosecutors, evidently they didn’t get the message the first time or two.
    Yes that is snark,
    Jack

  17. well, this from 2017 was quite prophetic re bannon.  catch him at 32 seconds and shows at end what happens to the Rump come 1/20/21 

  18. btw, Steve Bannons indictment is what gives me some hope we will survive Trumpism, there are still some good Republicans this indictment was not a safe choice  for political tract prosecutors.

    Some one posted a current picture of Bannon. It convinced me that I need to risk covid-19 and get a haircut. He looked like some homeless bum.

  20. Corey posted this, last night: 

    They dismantled 2 machines at the Grand Rapids post office and they started on a 3rd one, before they stopped. The ones they dismantled had the wires removed from them, I think. They will no longer work. I went up north yesterday.

    He is describing outright sabotage, not “cost-cutting measures”

  21. It is not even noon EDT and already Bannon was arrested by the US Postal Service police for mail fraud and SFB was told to cough up the tax returns.  There is still a lot of time before Biden takes the stage tonight.

  22. Kinda strange, but most of the kids I hung out with 50’s 60’s turned out to be democrats. Most, but not all. lol

    Author John Grisham yesterday toured the city with our democrat Rep Cunningham.

  23. patd…  thanks for posting both those speeches.  I did watch Obama speak…  but…  I fell asleep shorty after Kamala started.  Yeah… getting old does kinda suck.
     
    Gonna take a nap this afternoon so I can make sure I stay up to watch Biden tonight.

  24. Cavity search BananaNazi? Ew!  Bannon looks like COVID caught a mild case of human.
     
    We are having other issues due to slow mail.  Internet customers are complaining that they haven’t received orders.  So, slowing down cash payments; slowing down commerce.   Jeez, the Republicans are so anti-economy it’s ridiculous.    
    What Jamie said, please save our democracy this time.  You can vote Republican in the midterms and for the next presidential election.  If you don’t vote Biden/Harris this time, don’t expect to ever get to vote, again.  

  25. Bill Gates and George Soros poison your Social Security checks with Socialism and pedophilia. Whatever you do, don’t touch them !
     
    Don’t take pain meds, because they might lull you into accepting Bill Gates’ super-leftist socialism. 
     
    If you took your teeth out last night, and finally got some sleep, you figure it out. Take your teeth out and keep them out.

  26. Periodically, the machinery of the nation must be oiled with the fat of the ruling class. 

    You know who I mean : the fur-bearing reptiles.

    Render them down to their snake oil.

  27. Whassat from, FL in 2016?  I wonder if 113,000 old farts and people of color are pissed off enough at Lardius to vote for Biden.

  28. Better get word to those refugees that they need to register in order to vote. That should be more than enough to swing the election in Florida to Biden. And thank them from the bottoms of our hearts. If Trump doesn’t win Florida there is no way he wins the election.

  29. This is what the repube party has become.
     
    Trump’s Republican Party now has a ballot full of nutters
    “Laura Loomer (R-Wackadoodle) won a Republican congressional primary in Florida Tuesday night, becoming the latest of a score of similarly bizarre figures to be chosen as the GOP standard-bearers in House and Senate races coast to coast.
    You might think Republican Party leaders would be calling in the white coats. But there was Roger Stone, the Trump confidant whose prison sentence the president recently commuted, at Loomer’s victory party, calling her the “Joan of Arc of the conservative movement.” Loomer told supporters that Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel congratulated her as a “political rock star.” The state and county GOP embraced her publicly.
     
    Trump himself (his Mar-a-Lago property is in the heavily Democratic district in which Loomer has been nominated) issued a series of congratulatory tweets and retweets about Loomer, saying she has “a great chance against a Pelosi puppet.”
     
    This is the new face of the Republican Party. Next week, Republicans, at a convention featuring the couple who waved guns at racial-justice demonstrators walking past their mansion, will renominate Trump, an avid purveyor of conspiracy theories. And the down-ballot nominees show how pervasive the party’s Trump-induced madness has become.

  30. Bannon picked up.  Who thought that online crowdfunding campaign called We Build the Wall  was ever legit?  CAUGHT!

  31.  
    More Bannon and cronies on The Wall go fund me scam.
    It turns out that some of the money was diverted to pay for a million dollar yacht
     
    Which means……..
     
     
    Wait for it
     
    Just a little more
     
    A clear case of boater fraud
     
    Grin duck and run

  32. Tip toe, I don’t know what happened after all they had Kris Kobach for a lawyer. 

    But Kris Kobach is nota good trial lawyer. And his effort to defend Kansas’s proof of citizenship law in federal court netted him acontempt finding, a judicially mandated stint inremedial legal education, and a$1,000 finefor “deliberately attempting to mislead the court.”

    Ya know it is people like Kobach that make me question the value of a degree from Harvard.

  33. Child sex trafficking ring run out of the basement of a pizza parlor. Russia or a 400 # man sitting on his mother’s couch in the Balkans thought up the most ridiculous incongruent set of things and then laughed their asses off. Would America buy it?  Yep, dumbed down America, some of ’em, believed it. What mileage they got out of that.
     
    Maybe they had a spin the wheel of assorted stuff and put it together as the wheel spun.  Now they’ve added on cannibalism. 

  34. Old Man – it is possible the dam is being damaged by the water.  Part of it has buckled.  It will be a huge disaster and a terrible hit to China.  In the early stages there were many legitimate questions about building it in that location.  Here is a review.

  35. forbes:

    President Trump on Thursday distanced himself from his former strategist Steve Bannon after the latter’s arrest for his involvement in ‘We Build The Wall’ – an allegedly fraudulent GoFundMe to build a private US-Mexico border wall – but contemporaneous reports suggest Trump praised the project and even steered a contract to the same GOP-connected builder the group used.
    […]
    But Trump and McEnany’s statements belie claims by former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the general counsel of We Build The Wall, in January 2019 that Trump gave the project his “blessing,” as well as Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr.’s public praise of the project as a “pretty amazing” effort for an “important grassroots issue” at a 2018 fundraiser, according tovideounearthed by CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski.
    Trump also “personally and repeatedly” lobbied for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to award a $1.28 billion wall-building contract to Fisher Industries, a politically-connected firm that was also helping We Build The Wall build a private portion of the wall, according to the Washington Post.
    The company, which is not mentioned in the indictment, is run by GOP donor and frequent Fox News guest Tommy Fisher and won the contract after it “captured Trump’s attention” and was “repeatedly touted” by him, according to CNN.

  37. the hill:

    More than 70 former national security officials who served under Republican administrations have endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, joining a wave of GOP voices throwing their support behind the former vice president. 
    The officials have served under President Trump and Republican former Presidents George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. 
    […]
    “While we – like all Americans – had hoped that Donald Trump would govern wisely, he has disappointed millions of voters who put their faith in him and has demonstrated that he is dangerously unfit to serve another term,” the officials said in a statement. 
    Among numerous reasons why the group is backing Biden, they said Trump “undermined the rule of law” and “has disparaged our armed forces, intelligence agencies, and diplomats.”
    The group said they “believe Joe Biden has the character, experience, and temperament to lead this nation.”
    “While some of us hold policy positions that differ from those of Joe Biden and his party, the time to debate those policy differences will come later. For now, it is imperative that we stop Trump’s assault on our nation’s values and institutions and reinstate the moral foundations of our democracy,” they added.

  39. bannon on a mere $28M!LL!ON boat ? That’s merely the pinnace for a MegaYacht. 
     
    Remember the Spring of 2017 ? bannon was going to take over the world, transform America and then Europe. He was going to be one of the principal oligarchs. Now he’s been arrested, probably trying to escape, in a little $28,000,ooo canoe.

    Oh, how the mighty are fallen.

  40. I went there so you don”t have to.  The far freaking wing groups are all saying a lie – Curt Schilling was arrested with Bannon.  Schilling has not been arrested.  It is interesting how fast a lie spreads in the off the edge of the universe of right wing freaks.

  41. So, if tRUMPsky can’t stop mail-in ballots, he’s going to put his ugly mug on them and warn voters they’d better vote for him.   How is that NOT a campaign violation???     A voter can’t wear a candidate’s tee shirt to a polling place.  This is much worse, having it come directly from the fascist campaign to keep Orange Julius in power.  

  42. I’ve worn campaign buttons and t-shirts to the polls, without any trouble. I’ve also been told to remove them. So, it depends on who’s managing the site. I’m sure a lot of magott hats are going to show up at the polls.

  43. How can actually campaigning on the mail-in ballot not be a campaign violation?   And, at whose expense was that extra printing done?   Lock ‘em all up.  
     
    Bunker Boy is trying to distance himself from Bannon and the wall scam.   

  44. I just heard one of Biden’s spokespeople describe this fight for the presidency as “combat. Cutting heads off. . .”  For the campaign people, never refer to this fight or battle as “combat” and especially do not talk about cutting heads off or shooting people.  It is a fight.  Like a street brawl, but not “combat”.

  45. If you get a chance, watch this, again.  About half of it is still appropriate today, amazingly.  I realized that I like this year’s DNC better than the ole days with the funny hats and balloons. It feels more intimate now.
