  1. Yet again more proof that the GoP is souless and ends justify the means: https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/06/politics/kfile-mike-pence-moral-columns/index.html Vice President Mike Pence once argued the president of the United States should be held to the highest moral standards to determine whether he should resign or be removed from office. Pence made the argument in two columns in the late 1990s, where he wrote that then-President Bill Clinton's admission of an affair with a White House intern and prior lies to the public about the matter, possibly under oath, meant Clinton should be removed from office. Yet Pence also moved beyond the specifics of the Clinton case: He made a far-reaching argument about the importance of morality and integrity to the office of the presidency. Pence wrote the columns in the late 1990s when he was a local Indiana radio host and prominent conservative voice in the state arguing Clinton had lost his moral authority to lead the country. One of the columns, "The Two Schools of Thought on Clinton," was posted on his now-defunct website for his radio talk show. Another column, "Why Clinton Must Resign or Be Impeached," was posted on his congressional campaign website. Both columns were archived by the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. The columns ran in various Indiana newspapers at the time but did not get national attention. Dismissing the idea that the president is "just the like the rest of us," Pence wrote, "If you and I fall into bad moral habits, we can harm our families, our employers and our friends. The President of the United States can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous.
  2. Palmer Report‏Verified account @PalmerReport 13h13 hours ago Donald Trump’s day so far: - Devin Nunes caught on tape admitting Trump-Russia was a crime - Also said Trump makes him cringe - Omarosa has secret Trump tapes - Trump’s close GOP House ally Chris Collins arrested - They’re all going to prison - It’s still only 10pm -- Also something about Wilber Ross up to $150m shenanigans
  3. Mueller: We are going to investigate Trump's tweets Right-wing gaslighting media: No proof he actually wrote them, just trolling, etc. Giuliani: Trump doesn't have to be interviewed because his tweets say it all. -- Can't decide if Giuliani the worst lawyer ever or is playing 5D chess; being a full on agent provocateur to bring down Trump. Sadly it probably is the later. former.
  4. Plus there's a ton of potential stuff going in on the waterfront; that google village and Toronto is still on the medium list for Amazon HQ 2.
  5. Cohen says it didn't come from their camp. Possibly be fake or released to detract from the other 11 tapes.
  6. Seth Abramson‏Verified account @SethAbramson Tonight's news—if true—is evidence of a criminal conspiracy to receive illegal campaign contributions from a hostile foreign power and funnel that illegal contribution into a winning campaign strategy. Which is an impeachable offense, given all the other evidence we have on this. P.S. It is also *100%*, under *any* definition of the word *ever devised*, "collusion."
  7. Is that Metro Toronto or Kitchener-Waterloo?
  8. Sucking up to dictators who hacked our elections, paying hush money to sex workers, lying about it, and more. No discussion of any accountability. Rosenstein does his job? Impeachment. What has the modern Republican Party become? My my.
  9. What's interesting is that it's something on Trump that won't take down Putin. Like I assumed that Trump was just laundering money for them but at this point it has to be something like he roughed up a prostitute/stripper. To give kudos to Trump in the midst of the dominoes falling (ie: pretty much everyone in the Trumpist faction is tainted), the Steele dossier being proven true so far (and none has been disproven), him loosing his shit on twitter; he still seems to be playing the "who me?" angle pretty well.
  10. Now that Obama’s poll numbers are in tailspin – watch for him to launch a strike in Libya or Iran. He is desperate. 5:39 PM - 9 Oct 2012 https://www.politico.com/story/2018/07/23/trump-iran-threat-twitter-735617 "To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE," -- Wasn't Hillary the unstable PMS'ing warhawk?

  13. Smarmy or full of confidence because he has Trump by the balls?
