LOCK HIM UP: Jared Kushner Exposed For Using Private Email Account To Conduct White House Business

Politico reports:

Presidential son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has corresponded with other administration officials about White House matters through a private email account set up during the transition last December, part of a larger pattern of Trump administration aides using personal email accounts for government business.

Kushner uses his private account alongside his official White House email account, sometimes trading emails with senior White House officials, outside advisers and others about media coverage, event planning and other subjects, according to four people familiar with the correspondence. POLITICO has seen and verified about two dozen emails.

Aides who have exchanged emails with Kushner on his private account since Trump took office in January include former chief of staff Reince Priebus, former chief strategist Steve Bannon, Gary Cohn, and spokesman Josh Raffel according to emails described to or shown to POLITICO. In some cases those White House officials have emailed Kushner’s account first, said people familiar with the messages.

The decision to set up new, private accounts as Kushner was preparing to enter the White House came in the wake of a bitter election campaign in which his father-in-law Donald Trump routinely excoriated his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for using a personal email account to handle government business when she was Secretary of State.

      That is exactly what is so revolting about anything the Furor or his people do. I am very hopeful that Kushner will go to jail eventually.

            Note that there is a group of people that no matter what the issue is, they turn it into a complaint about Democrats. That is the technique of propagandists. It is what feeds the discontent and makes otherwise sane people vote for the Green Party or decide that both parties are the same. The Russians have their finger on this. They will undermine the trust in all of the Democrats by finding issue after issue to sow discontent. Rethugs are smart enough to generally follow the idea that you don’t speak ill of fellow Rethugs.

            Plus Hillary could take responsibility for her loss from now until the end of the earth and they would still say it isn’t enough.

            Plus Hillary could take responsibility for her loss from now until the
            end of the earth and they would still say it isn’t enough.

            Now that’s a laugh and half. When has Hillary taken responsibility for her loss. Because if she did I missed it.

            Hillary has blamed everyone and the kitchen sink for her loss and has never taken responsibility for losing the election. She always finds a reason to blame someone or something else.

            1. Email server scandal

            8. Non-existent data from the DNC
            9. MSM unfairly targeted her
            10. MSM paid too much attention to opponent
            11. Women didn’t vote for her (and now will go to that special place in hell promised by Maddie Albright)
            12. Missed opportunities
            13. Bernie Bros β€œharassed” supporters online
            14. Bernie and his supporters didn’t show enough enthusiasm for Clinton

            So that’s your only response. Not to provide a link to sources that show where HRH Saint Hillary took personal responsibility for her 2016 presidential election loss (she never has by the way) but simply post some idiotic two word response.

            So prove me wrong. Provide me proof where HRH Saint Hillary has taken personal responsibility for that train wreck of a campaign she ran and the loss to Donald J. Trump of all people.

          You won’t get the Hillaristas to stop complaining that the Bernie Bros are the SOLE reason she lost the election if you keep attacking them just for running Hillary. Both positions are counter productive. It is like the head butler and the head cook on the Titanic arguing while the ship is going down.

            For that very reason he DNC should stop all reference to both Hillary is not running again and Bernie was never a democrat so just stop it and move on

          Lawerence, aren’t you the reason that she lost since you probably voted for someone else as a protest vote? That really showed us, eh!

          • Lawerence Collins

            No, a trusted source convinced me to vote for her more quiet subdued corruption.

            The lead anchor and owners of the progressive news show that I watch. Made the case why Clinton would be the safer choice.
            In the booth. I almost didn’t vote for anyone.
            Then I remembered the strong warning I’d watched. I closed my eyes. Voted for her. Never looked at my ballot again.

        It was in a mall in Springfield, VA. I’m not sure of the name of the mall.

        • Danieruw

          Probably Springfield Town Center. They renovated that mall a few years ago so it would make sense there.

          Trying to remember where I was reading recently about malls (all sizes) in general are a dying trend that peaked in the late 80’s.
          Newest trend (but not really new) is people would rather shop on say a street of stores instead of the whole mall concept.

          • Joe in PA

            But where will the old people (with walking shoes that are fastened with Velcroβ„’) walk? Seriously, we saw some…it was a SPECTACULAR day outside, about 72 degrees, sunny, and there they were walking around a mall. Ugh.

            We were in Macy’s today and the clerk said she thought it likely that the entire mall would close soon. There’s been talk about it for months. She said they’ve stopped carrying several higher-end brands, which is why she thinks her store is going to close, but she also thinks the entire mall will close. JC Penney and Sears are two of the other anchor stores, and we’ve all heard how badly they’re doing.

        • TominDC

          That mall has been dying for a very long time.

          I remember commenting on how it was a ghost town over a decade ago, and the parking lots were mostly empty the last few times I drove by. I’m frankly surprised how it’s managed to stay in business.

    Of all the Mueller investigations the one I will follow with the most relish is when Jared Kushner is sent through the baler. I believe it is a tad out of scope with the Trump/ Rusiia fiasco but closly associated . Given that Jared has got his family tied up in an extremly expensive piece of real estate in NYC , namely 666 5th avenue Given also, that at one point Kushner was attempting to set up an inhouse private message system iwithin the Soviet embassy. I firmly believe, he was personally trying to set up a Kushner/ Russian liason to aid in that venture, I believe Donny had all the right leads and contacts to get Jared on the right path.. Then the wheels started to loosen

    • Jarad is desperate for large amounts of cash. Who knows what he will do for being financially rescued?

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        They actually managed to send his dad to jail for a year, IIRC. I want Jared to beat his old man’s prison time.

        • I want Jared to go to jail for a long, long, long time. I’d be happy with 20 years.

      As the High Holy Days of Yom Kippur approach, I have devised a 3-Step Plan for Jared Kushner’s atonement and rehabilitation:

      (1) Recitation of the appropriate prayers, followed by food deprivation (masquerading as “fasting”) for two weeks;

      (2) Binding Jared in my basement (an act of penitence on his part that will be pleasing to his God). Leather straps, ball gag (all tastefully color-coordinated); and

      (3) The ceremonial Licking of the Nipples.

      The latter is an esoteric 3rd Century practice that is said to please God and ensure a place in heaven (well…at least for the duration of the licking, that is).

      • Blake J Butler

        See, told ya’ll, he’s been coming up with this on his own for some time now.

      I remember Seth Myers called Jared a vanilla latte but not in a flattering manner.

      Except if this were actually Jared it would look like a 12 year old in bondage and it would then be of no interest to most besides Catholic priests and other pedos.

          I’ve been labeled a slut. And all because I don’t attend football games.

          And that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it….

          • Upon entering the stadium, one should not park one self in the rest room for the entire game. It is customary to actually go topside to the seating area and watch other stuff. So yes, you technically don’t attend football games…slut. πŸ˜‰

            “When the Trump International Golf Club in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, filed for bankruptcy in July 2015 β€” just a month after Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign β€” Trump’s family did everything they could to distance themselves from the failed project. “This has absolutely nothing to do with Trump. This is a separate owner. We purely manage the golf course,” Eric Trump told Bloomberg at the time.”

    OT: Well, that soap disaster from last night turned out OK.

I’ll just tell people it’s a smoke cloud and I designed the top that way. The trapped bubbles from boiling? Uh…whatever.

    The pumpkin spice is very rustic since it seized (hardened instantly) on me and I had to pack it into the molds. Then it boiled itself (I should know better than to use a spice fragrance). It looks very rustic, but for an orange, pumpkin-scented soap, that’s actually kind of nice looking.

        Exactly. But with 45 and the Faux news crowd, it’s being perceived as a patriotism issue. I say just stop playing the fucking anthem. God, the dumbing down of this country is so so sad.

        • Max_1

          It’s a “PATRIOTISM” issue for Cult45 because this protest calls out the racism involved in policing… And thus, calls out the racism in America… And American now has a White Nationalist in the White House as President… Of course it’s about “PATRIOTISM”… It’s about their “HERITAGE”… Their ideological principles their current Political Party stands for.

          • Max_1

        I don’t see that passing as is. Also, they want to lower the rate by destroying deductions, which is dicey in and of itself.

        One of the dick moves the GOP came up with is to get rid of the state tax deduction for people who list their deductions because it hits blue states worse but then the GOP pols in the blue states started screaming, “Stop, you’ll get us kicked out!”

        I have heard that the GOP is also looking at “modifying” the mortgage tax deduction.

        Trump just doesn’t believe the mainstream media, nor the intelligence agencies.

  • SoCalGal20

    Okay, here’s the current WaPo story. They got a confirmation from Jared’s lawyer. They have it as “developing” so by the time they’re done we’ll probably find out Jared used his private email 95% of the time or something.

    President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has used a private email account to conduct official White House business dozens of times, his lawyer told The Washington Post on Sunday in response to a report that first surfaced in Politico.


    Kushner has several times exchanged news stories and minor reactions or updates with other administration officials since joining the White House, using a private email account rather than an official government one. He did so through his first nine months in government service, even as President Trump continued to hammer Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton this summer as reckless for her use of a private email account for government business.

    • UrsusArctos

      At least with him, it’s not a risk that a hostile power will intercept his email – they’re the addressees.

    • Scout

      The CNN story has this, which minimizes the news:

      “Lowell said that the emails on Kushner’s private account were “usually forwarded news articles or political commentary and most often occurred when someone initiated the exchange by sending an email to his personal, rather than his White House, address.”

      He said this happened 8 or 9 times a month.

      • RaygunsGoZap

        Usually? So room for real mishandling and criminal activity still. GTK.

    Watched some of the NBC football previews and I just have to say, having Tony Dungy talk about how there needs to be understanding and unity is a joke.
    He is great when it comes to helping out people of color, unless they are LGBT, in which case Tony has made clear they and anyone else who is LGBT is a sinner who will burn in hell when they die and thus deserve to be discriminated against while they’re alive.
    I won’t pretend to know what POC go through in this country since I’m white but I do know the hardship anyone who is LGBT goes through.
    And if you’re a LGBT of color, it’s even worse.
    Because not only are you discriminated by society because of your skin color, but bigots like Dungy will ensure that where you could for help because of that, you can’t because you are LGBT.
    A bigot is a bigot IMO and Dungy is no better then some of the people he is mad at right now, especially since he sided with some of them against us.

    • gaycuckhubby

      Fuck Tony Dungy! I despise him

    • SoCalGal20

      Completely misses the point of Kaepernick’s protest.

      Cops need to stop murdering black people (and other POC) and until white people own their part in the systemic racism that allows that to happen with impunity there won’t be unity.

      He fought for us during the Minnesota marriage equality battles.
      A true ally in every sense of the word.

      • gaycuckhubby

        He has a “unique” writing style πŸ™‚ very creative word usage!

        • ohbear1957

          Lustful cockmonster!

          • gaycuckhubby

            I want to get my husband a tshirt with that on it and wear it out to fetish night. Lol

    • TampaDink

      I love him….partly because of his support for marriage equality and also for his coining the phrases “lustful cockmonster” & “beautifully unique sparkleponies”.

      • gaycuckhubby

        I know both of those are meant as an insult but I would be proud to be called either

        • TampaDink

          As they were originally directed, yes…..but, like you, I’m proud to be a lustful cockmonster as well as a beautifully unique sparklepony.

        • edrex

          like to think of myself as a beautifully unique cockpony.

          • gaycuckhubby

            Lol! As long as i don’t have to wear a bridle and saddle I’m down!

    • Ben in Oakland

      I can’t imagine Kluge unloading in Trumpee. Maybe a different, less ummm, loaded word?

      • gaycuckhubby

        He and Dan Savage need to team up on that one

        • Reality.Bites

          It’s noteworthy (if you’re like me) that he didn’t coin the phrase. He said something should be named after him and opened it up to suggestions from readers.

          Which is not to say he can’t turn a phrase.

          • gaycuckhubby

            Good point! He was a signal booster

          • Reality.Bites

            Also a lustful cockmonster

        We are nervous about that.

        • johncAtl

          It takes a hell of a hurricane to affect Orlando. And in the unlikely event that a hurricane did form in December it wouldn’t have much strength over the Atlantic since the water temperature wouldn’t sustain it. Orlando, and North Florida, has stronger thunderstorms year round than a December hurricane.

    • gaycuckhubby

      That sounds so fun!

    Decided to send raging bigot Maria Bartiromo a history lesson.

    https://twitter.com/LPDah/status/912110511650521088

    From the linked piece.

    “Yet the belief endures, from Armstrong’s time and before, that visible, affluent African-Americans entertainers are obliged to adopt a pose of ceaseless gratitudeβ€”appreciation for the waiver that spared them the low status of so many others of their kind. Stevie Wonder began a performance in Central Park last night by taking a knee, prompting Congressman Joe Walsh to tweet that Wonder was β€œanother ungrateful black multi-millionaire.” Ungrateful is the new uppity.”

    • JWC

      Not since the 60’s has the US’s ugly racist head risen so highly as it has done in the last couple of days This is not to say it hasn’t always been there it has, just lurking. Yes it has surfaced when the Bars and Stars were outlawed and again with Southern Rebel statues and eddifaces being rermoved. Slowly this man , this usurper of the title of President has breathed life into this dirty facet. I wasn’t till he was in Alabama, the hellhole of racist ideals, that he made his comments and unleashed the ugly genie from the bottle How this is quelled and the Genie rebottled I don’t know, but a major start is to remove the enabler in chief .The sooner the better

      • Cuberly

        Wouldn’t it be awesome if the bigots woke up and discovered how wrong it was for the uber-wealthy in this country to use their bottomless resources to dictate our politics and policy?

        I mean, if black athletes should STFU and be grateful for their success, stop being political…..stands to reason right? IF you make tons of money shutup and appreciate your rewards.

        ARGH! But it’s so difficult! The athletes are on my TV, making me think! Making me acknowledge why they’re doing what they’re doing! There’s a tangible connection occurring. Damn them for making me outraged! I just wanted to get drunk, scratch my crotch and yell at refs!

        They’re not some group of aging white dudes that at any moment could kick back and just successfully run a damn company. Alas they’re at a retreat at some resort talking about how the country has gone soft and all vestiges of the dreaded soshulizm must be stomped! They know what’s right and it’s only their formula of politics and indentured servitude economics that will make us succeed!

        Sorry for the rant, I just tend to see these things as having a tangle of tangents and influences. So much of it is power related, who dispenses it and who hordes it, the deciders, the ignorers…

        • JWC

          The old white men of America want the power see no reason to share it or relinquish a shred of it Fine if have some but know your place and don’t be all snotty about it

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Bartiromo should be grateful she lives in a country where people get paid handsomely to report:

      “Stocks were sold. In shocking news, someone bought them.”

      • Cuberly

        That is her gig in a rather perceptive nutshell.

        Asking her about her opinion about kneeling during the national anthem she said.

        β€œI think it’s disgusting” she offered, adding β€œI don’t know what they are so upset about right now. I looked at these contract and they are making hundreds of millions of dollars. They than 150, $160 million contract over the coming years.”

        https://www.mediaite.com/tv/maria-bartiromo-rips-nfl-anthem-kneelers-on-fox-friends-i-think-its-disgusting/

        Even when she’s been paid to sound like she’s about money smarts she fails. in a creepily oblivious sort of way.

        She’s had oblivistupid racist rants in the past. Which is why her most recent is just another example.

  • Lazycrockett
  • SoCalGal20

    Ooh the Raiders are all sitting.

    • Ken M

      Sitting…or kneeling?

      • Lazycrockett

        they all took the knee.

      • SoCalGal20

        They were sitting.

        I guess they had originally planned to stay in the lockerroom during the anthem but accoding to one of the NBC people due to the timing because of it being a Sunday night game they would have incurred some sort of penalty and lost the coin toss and some other things so they took the field.

    • gaycuckhubby

      Nice!

    • Cuberly

      All the more interesting since the owner had met with players in the past, asking them to not wear their uniforms if they decided to protest.

      Today the owner said, in a nutshell, f’ that noise. He was behind them whatever they chose to do. Trump was the last straw.

    • crewman

      I’m super excited about it! I can’t say I’m at all excited about the new CBS model of pay $5/month to watch a show with commercials or $10/month without.

      If this catches on, I guess cable will go away and we’ll be paying $150/month to each of the individual content providers we’re interested in.

      • greenmanTN

        That might work well for me because there are only a few channels I watch. I cut cable last year in part because I couldn’t get the channels I wanted (BBC for one) without going to a more expensive package, but I was getting 2 shopping channels, 3 “Christian” channels, and several sports channels.

      what reliable organizations are helping PR? where can we send support?

    • johncAtl

      I’ve been to San Juan about ten times for both work and pleasure and I love going there. I can’t believe that the U.S. media isn’t covering what is going on in a U.S. territory. This is an unprecedented crisis. Puerto Rico has a population of 3.7M people. There is little power on the island, which means there is also little clean water. The island is effectively shut down in terms of business, so few people are earning a salary. And at 9pm it’s 82 degrees and feels like 91. These are U.S. citizens that are suffering, and Trump is worried about professional athletes that don’t think he’s the greatest president ever.

      • fuzzybits

        Did I miss it or has donnie said one damn thing about PR?

        • johncAtl

          I haven’t seen it. He may not know it’s a U.S. territory, and he’s going to build a wall to keep them out of the U.S. What he doesn’t know is that over half the population of PR lives in the mainland U.S. – mostly in NY and FL.

      Rednecks aren’t going to give up football. And the NFL teams can’t fire all the black players, or they’ll be left with a JV team that doesn’t know which end zone to defend. Trump won’t win this one. But he’ll Tweet his short little fingers off claiming he did.

    • Lazycrockett

      I dont watch any type of show on tv anymore.

    • Natty Enquirer

      What are they, five seconds long now? So you get to watch 24 commercials in a break where there used to be two back when people had attention spans.

      • Talisman

        TWC has commercial breaks that go on for 10 minutes. Seriously, I timed one.

        There have been times where the breaks have gone on for awhile, but that’s mostly because they skipped a break earlier and were catching up.

        • Ken M

          I wonder how much of that 10 min was drug ads that “cause life threatening side effects.” I stopped calling them medicines when there were more with cosmetic benefits than actual health care benefits.

          • Talisman

            I still can’t believe Kybella exists.

      • bambinoitaliano

        It’s one of the reason piracy persisted. All network should be like Netflix so viewers are not being dictated.

        • Talisman

          Sure, if you want to be nickled-and-dimed by multiple subscription services.

          The Network model serves a purpose: it provides free entertainment. The trade off is advertising, which pays for the service.

          The bill always comes due.

    • johncAtl

      You must have a Tivo. I just recently moved, and tried to move my Comcast service from my condo to my apartment. I wasted an hour with a Comcast representative who insisted that they bring me a Comcast device, even though I already have a Comcast-provided cable card in my Tivo. I told her she was the reason that people hate Comcast. And then I think I told her to fuck off. My apartment complex already has a local provider of 100 Mb up/down internet service, and they are starting installation of AT&T 1Gb fiber this week. So I guess I need to call Comcast back and make sure that they understand what “fuck off” means.

      From Politico: “Under the revised text, the bill’s authors now project increases in federal funding for Arizona (14 percent), Kentucky (4 percent) and Alaska (3 percent), which would have seen declines under the previous version, according to a leaked analysis from President Donald Trump’s health department. All three states are home to pivotal GOP swing votes who either have opposed or expressed concerns with the bill β€” Sens. John McCain, Rand Paul and Lisa Murkowski.”

      • safari

        So, bribes.

          • Talisman

            Joy Reid was on the Well Red podcast (Trae Crowder’s podcast with his fellow liberal rednecks), and she said something that made a lot of sense (might not be the exact phrasing): “Republicans are good at elections, but terrible at governing. Democrats are terrible at elections, but great at governing.”

          • Cuberly

            It’s the truth.

          It’s hard to believe that we’re living in a time when GOP healthcare plans are far scarier and potentially deadlier than nuclear war.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        I honestly feel that if those Senators let bribes change their mind then I say that between that bullshit and gerrymandering and their crappy ass behavior when blue states have emergencies while going “OH noes, you can’t be mean when WE have problems” when it’s Texas or Florida, there’s no point in the blue states staying in this “union.”

        • Treant

          Agreed. And the blue/purple states still have two thirds of the population and almost all of the remaining heavy industry. The “New South” can’t force us back.

  • Treant

    Who saw the Oprah interview on 60 Minutes before Star Trek? She had Repubs and Dems in a room and was trying to get them to talk.

    It’s weird, but I noted that the Dems aren’t giving placating language any longer. They’re pissed, they weren’t giving much rope, and they weren’t apologizing.

    The Republicans, of course, thought that the whole Russian connection thing was made up and total lies. They think free speech is saying anything you want, anywhere, without being challenged. And they want Obamacare gone until one of the more liberal ones said she’d be dead quickly if she didn’t have it.

    I came to the conclusion that if one of them fell over spewing blood and wearing a MAGA cap, I’d step over the body while I went on my way. Fuck them. There might be some urine released as I pass over the face, apparently they like that, and hopefully my health will trickle down.

            I used to be able to handle a whole week. My father is now retired, and has nothing else to do but watch Fox News. NOPE.

          • Treant

            Perhaps that’s even wiser (and meaner). Look them up and down, shake my head sadly, and simply turn and walk. If questioned, “It was so wrong it wasn’t even worth my time.”

        • UrsusArctos

          The hubs Trumpista family KNOW to leave me alone. The holidays may be more tense for them, but ‘sOK with me. I have already pointed all the ways they’re not wealthy enough to be Republicans and asked WTF are jews doing voting that way. They learned pissed off Protestant Bubbas can shut down a room.

    • safari

      It takes a lot of control for me not to break a TV playing fox news. The topics they cover are all designed to bring out the hate in people.

    • Bryan

      I’m watching it right now, I had to mute the tv once the speech therapist kept ranting to give Trump “a chance.”

      • Treant

        Yeah, that roiled my boil too. He’s had ten friggin’ months and dozens of chances, and failed every single time.

        Like I said, screw that shit, I have no sympathy left. If you’re supporting Trump at this point, fuck you.

        For Trumpsters:

            I got annoyed enough to leave the room.

        The “Free Speech for Nazis” guy was particularly annoying.

        Apparently, two guys fighting means a liberal instigated violence. Because neo-Nazis are all known as huge peacemongers, of course. And counter-protests are, like, evil or something because they…stifle free speech? What?

        • Hue-Man

          “Free speech for me but not for thee.”

        • JCF

          I am not a fan of antifa. That said, I heard from a number of the PEACEFUL (mainly Charlottesville black church-related) anti-Klan demonstrators, that the Nazis/Klan came directly at them, looking to KILL, when the antifas intervened, and got in-between. You know, kind of like how in 1945, US Army “antifas” got in-between death camp inmates, and Nazi gas chambers?

      I don’t think Collins is gonna budge. She seems somewhat ethical.

      • Leo

        I think I’d be surprised with Murkowski to vote for this, I genuinely would. Her next election after winning on a write-in is long after this administration will have likely imploded and she’d look horrible for turning for something worse.

      • Treant

        While she has a moment every now and again, it’s mostly show. She’s still a Republican pig, after all.

      • kareemachan

        As is AK’s senator.

      • MBear

        No

      • UrsusArctos

        “Seems” is the operative word. If she can vote yes without screwing her plans to run for governor, she will – if her history holds.

  • NZArtist

    Can someone tell the GOP senators that their jobs and wealth wont be secure under the Russian-backed oligarchy they’re helping install?
    I appreciate that Russia has installed an administration that is unlikely to advance strong sanctions against Russia for installing that administration (I mean, obviously). But can someone tell the GOP senators Russia isn’t yet done, and the senators are *so* going to be the first against the wall once Russia achieves its end-game.
    Tell the senators it’s actually in their own best interests to stop the silent invasion of the USA by Russia and enforce some strong and meaningful reprisals on Russia for their interferrence.
    Thanks.

    • Treant

      Politicians are always incredibly certain of their ability to jump before the fecal material impacts the rotating blades, and no doubt plenty of them have literal or proverbial jump bags ready to go. They have plenty of money squirreled away and destinations in mind. You won’t convince them otherwise.

      • fuzzybits

        And it’s we poor folk who will get splattered as usual.

        • Treant

          Second or third. I seriously think the Senators believe they’re playing on the same levels as Vlad Putin.

          They’re not. And two-thirds of them are going to find out that they may have been certain, but they were, as usual, wrong. At best, they end up puppets. At worst, they end up radioactive until the polonium decays.

          After that, you dismantle the major industrial leaders as fast as possible; not the industries, the leaders. Then the major Universities, and those there who could be a problem for you.

          Then the little folks.

          • fuzzybits

            The poor always suffer no matter what’s happening.

      • NZArtist

        Sure, but you think Russia wouldn’t execute them as traitors and seize their wealth? Why spend money when you can just make a short-term investment that returns all your money?
        I mean, if you’ve spent all that money and effort to take over a country, why leave people who could become opponents, with lots of money, around?
        Nope, Russia is in this for the long game, and that game sure as hell doesn’t leave rich traitorous Americans free to roam the world.

        • Treant

          Just so. They’re certain of their ability to jump beforehand. They’re simply not correct about being certain. πŸ™‚

          Never underestimate the hubris of a politician. Just look for one who uses that hubris to build a coalition of agreement rather than fear.

  • Scout

    It would be nice if something actually came of this . . . seems like we come across at least a crime a day or more from the Trump family and administration.

    ————–

    I just filed an ethics complaint on β€œPresident” Donald Trump with the Office of Government Ethics for his comments calling on any NFL player who takes a knee to be fired. 18 U.S. Code Β§ 227 makes it a federal crime – punishable by a fine or up to 15 years in prison – for a government employee to influence or threaten to influence a private employment decision.

    Trump’s initial comments came during a rambling speech in Alabama on Sept. 22 when he called on NFL owners to fire players who kneel during the national anthem.

    OT: 89Β° today, but I got the deadheading done, removed the (few) dead plants and ground them for the compost bin, manually watered the gardens (I took down the watering system yesterday), and cut new flowers for the vases.

    It still looks phenomenal. But it’s definitely starting to wind down. You can see the Harlequin dahlia has some dead bits on it, there’s a spurious volunteer marigold, and the bush zinnia are looking a little disordered. This is the front-north face next to the driveway, not including the mailbox gardens.

        2,000 square feet of garden. πŸ™‚ So yes, a four-valve manifold front and back to handle the lawn and gardens. I designed and installed the system myself, which means there are a few problems with lawn coverage. πŸ™‚

      I really wish I owned my own place, so I could start gardening. If I could ever get back to my location of choice, my plan is to rent for a few years, and then start looking for a permanent house. I’m in my late 40’s , and I’m tired of feeling like I’m always in transition.

      • Treant

        Not even pot gardening? For some years, I did condo indoor and very small deck gardens.

        Even now, over winter, I pot garden indoors.

        • Talisman

          This apt has terrible light. All the plants that I had nurtured for 10 years before I moved into this house died within 2 years after I moved in.

          • Treant

            Try a Mother In Law Tongue or a Swedish ivy. The ivy won’t bloom, but should grow.

            Pothos is another good choice for very low light.

          • Talisman

            One of the plants was a pothos. ;(

          • Treant

            Mother In Law Tongue or Corn Plant (which is not a corn plant) then. They’ll tolerate much, much lower light levels.

            Rubber plant as well, but that can be very tall and very sloppy.

          • Talisman

    Anybody need anymore bummer reading? Well, as sick to death as I am of all things Dumpy McFuckface, I thought this Seth Abramson thread cut to the heart of things.

    Some nuggets –

    6/ But the most important thing is this: this is the first U.S. president to systematically and willfully terrorize his own populace daily.

    7/ His changeability is intended to keep us anxious and on guard. In fact, he’s admitted publicly, many times, that this is a tactic of his.

    11/ His presidency is a criminal enterprise designed to enrich his family and give him the attention his father clearly denied him as a kid.

    18/ Have you noticed a change in your mood since January? I mean a change you can’t seem to escape? Anxiety, anger, fear, confusion, doubt?

    19/ The most ubiquitous man in your nation is trying to poison you dailyβ€”because it gives him powerβ€”and no one’s stopping him from doing it.

    44/ Trump is the most dangerous American of all our lifetimesβ€”he’s so dangerous we can’t fully apprehend the danger or how to respond to it.

    45/ He’s an actually evil presence that hangs over your lifeβ€”and the life of a nation you loveβ€”every single day. And he may be unstoppable.

    https://twitter.com/SethAbramson/status/912121930102317056

    • Treant

      Nobody’s unstoppable, and it’s very wrong to give him that much power over you. Time, if nothing else, will eventually win.

      That having been said, this is a very dangerous game Trump is playing. Anxiety leads to stress. Stress leads to the desire to remove that stress. Eventually, and under enough pressure, that will lead to actions that nobody really wants to consider.

      Even Hitler knew that; he made sure to walk into inherited problems, blame the Other, and offer a solution (that couldn’t and didn’t work, but kept him in power for a very long time.)

      Trump does nothing but agitate with no outlet and with continuously building pressure. Something’s gonna blow.

      • worstcultever

        Yeah I balked somewhat at “unstoppable” too. But fuck, nothing’s stopped him yet.

        And of course time always wins, but so what. Yes, Hitler is now in the mists of time and we have a reasonably smart, civilized lady running Germany. But look at what he managed to do to so many millions of people in those awful years.

            Have you heard Kenneth Anger’s story about “Juanita, the chambermaid,” happening upon the leavings of Lupe Velez’s “Seconal suicide” in 1944?:

            The bed was empty. The aroma of scented candles, the fragrance of tuberoses almost, but not quite masked a stench recalling that left by Skid-Row derelicts. Juanita traced the vomit trail from the bed, followed the spotty track over to the orchid-tiled bathroom. There she found her mistress, SeΓ±orita Velez, head jammed down in the toilet bowl, drowned.
            The huge dose of Seconal had not been fatal in the expected fashion. It had mixed retch-erously [sic] with [Lupe’s spicy Mexican] Last Supper. The gut action, her stomach churning, had revived the dazed Lupe. Violently sick, an ultimate fastidiousness drove her to stagger towards the sanitary sanctum of the salle de bain where she slipped on the tiles and plunged head first into her Egyptian Chartreuse Onyx Hush-Flush Model Deluxe.

    What is going on in Puerto Rico is an outrage.
    When the hell are people going to call out Trump & company for dragging their feet?

    • DaddyRay

      I almost think we should be putting pressure on cruise companies to go save them until the electricity can be restored to their areas – I doubt that is possible with the population of Puerto Rico but something has to be done.

    “Fewer than three in 10 Americans — 29% — hold a favorable view of the Republican Party according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. That is down 13 percentage points from March and is the lowest mark for the GOP since CNN began asking the question in 1992.

    The previous low point for the GOP was 30% — hit twice — in October 2013
    following the federal government shutdown over President Barack Obama’s
    health care law, and December 1998, in the wake of the House of
    Representatives approving two articles of impeachment against then
    President Bill Clinton.

    Republicans are signaling they prefer President Donald Trump’s vision for the
    party, with 79% saying he is taking it in the right direction. A majority of GOP voters — 53% — believe Republican leaders in Congress are taking the party in the wrong direction.”

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        I’m having a hard time believing anybody who actually liked Obama enough to vote for him could ever vote for someone who went birther on him. Unless they really are just throwing darts at their choices with a blindfold on.

        • JCF

          Heh, I almost said, 15 seconds ago, “…unless she picked him by throwing darts”!

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            I worry when people openly admit to having an almost random process when voting.

          • safari

            “Swing voters” anger me.

    • JCF

      You can’t convince me she ever voted for Obama.

      • Treant

        Nor I. She was an RMoney voter through and through. McCain before that. Then Bush. Twice.

      • zhera

        She’s the type of person who will claim to have voted for whoever won. Because she always picks winners, and she’s always right.

        No wonder she’s a trumpanzee.

        • Snarky

          I had the same thought – “hmm, interesting how she says she only voted for the winners, despite their incredible political & policy differences.” Fuck that shit.

        I totally agree. Whenever a trump voter claims that I balk.

      This looks staged.

      • billbear1961

        It seems to be a reenactment in a recent movie. (I’d assume most of it is computer-generated.)

        It makes me think of Dump’s ongoing coup.

    • greenmanTN

      Run away, Nerdgasm beginning! That scene is from the movie of a few years ago, Hugo, but it’s based on a real event, a train that crashed through a building in 1895 (I think). Hugo is the story of a little boy who lives inside the clockwork that runs all the clocks in the train station and makes friends (eventually) with a store owner who turns out to be Georges Melies, a former stage magician who later was a pioneer filmmaker, probably most famous for his short film A Trip To The Moon.

      A Trip To The Moon, with recent music by the French band Air.
