Trump: "Aids on the Wall"

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

The Amazon Washington Post and @CNN just did a Fake Interview on Pardons for Aids on the Wall, and that I didn’t think the Wall on the Southern Border was that important to stop Illegals wanting to come into our Country. WRONG, vitally important. Will make a BIG impact. So bad!

@Lawrence

Last night I made an error in judgment by reporting an item about the president’s finances that didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process. I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air. I will address the issue on my show tonight.

If Melania REALLY understood Kim, she'd know he's building a ballistic missile submarine. SAD!

Satellite photos indicate North Korea is building a ballistic missile submarine and may be making preparations to test a submarine-launched missile, according to an analysis of the commercial images by experts at a Washington-based think tank.

Kentucky principal who tried to ban books over 'homosexual content' busted for child porn

Kentucky principal who tried to ban books over ‘homosexual content’ busted for child porn



https://www.rawstory.com/2019/08/kentucky-principal-who-tried-to-ban-books-over-homosexual-content-busted/

A Kentucky high school principal who made national news for trying to ban books over “homosexual conduct” has been arrested on child pornography charges.

Phillip Todd Wilson was arrested Tuesday on 30 counts after state troopers received a complaint from Clark County Area Technology Center that the principal had given child pornography to someone else, reported WKYT-TV.

The principal was charged with 15 counts of distribution of matter portraying sexual performance by a minor, and 15 counts of possessing matter portraying sexual performance by a minor after investigators found more than a dozen images in his possession.

The technology center is operated by the Kentucky Department of Education, which is investigating to determine whether children in the program were effected.


Today's Internet? Don't even THINK of awarding it to ANYONE other than Mr. PATTON OSWALT.

It is amazing that I can be at 51% with Zogby when the Fake & Corrupt News is almost 100% against me. Great job Mr. President!

I'd like to see an end to the expression "That's just Trump being Trump"...

...Chuck Todd said it earlier today, when he showed an old clip of Trump pimping Trump steaks, water, wine, vodka, and saying "We're going to bring back Trump University after we settle the lawsuit."

On one hand, yes...it IS "Trump being Trump."

On the other hand, I feel a sort of "normalization," intended or not, the way you scruff up Dennis the Menace's hair after he's been a rascal. Or maybe the way Jimmy Fallon scruffed up Trump's hair on The Tonight Show.

It's a nuance thing, I'm probably reading more into it than necessary, but when I hear it, it's like "We expect it, that's just the way he is, so what are ya gonna do?"

Hopefully, what we're gonna do is vote him out of office in 2020.

Until then, I'd love it if I never hear those words again.

In case you missed it: The Federal Election Commission Is About to Partially Shut Down

The Federal Election Commission Is About to Partially Shut Down



https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/08/the-federal-election-commission-is-about-to-partially-shut-down/

For years, the Federal Election Commission has been barely functional. But at the end of this month—as the 2020 campaign heats up and unprecedented amounts of money flow to candidates for national office—much of the agency’s work will shut down entirely. There will be no new fundraising rules, no punishments for rule-breakers, no decisions about the outcomes of investigations, no advisory opinions issued to candidates who want to know if a specific campaign finance practice is illegal.

That’s because in order to do any of that, the FEC needs a quorum of four of the six members that, by law, make up the commission. As of September, three of those positions will be vacant. Two seats have been unoccupied for months (since 2017 and 2018, respectively). On Monday morning, one of the remaining Republican commissioners announced his resignation as of the end of the month. There’s little indication that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will move the fill the empty seats anytime soon.

The lights at FEC headquarters won’t literally go out—campaigns and political committees will still have to file fundraising reports, and the commission’s staff will still post that information information online. But the commission’s leadership will be unable to take any formal actions. New rules will be frozen. Campaigns and political committees will be unable to get advice from commissioners on how to apply rules. And much of the FEC’s oversight activity will grind to a halt. When commission staff conduct investigations of possible violations, it requires votes from the commissioners for any action to be taken on the outcome of those investigations. Similarly, for fines to be imposed on rule breakers, it requires a vote.

Monday’s resignation of Republican commissioner Matthew Petersen leaves one Democrat, one Republican and one independent commissioner. And the timing couldn’t be worse: The 2020 election is predicted to be the most expensive election in history, and a raft of unresolved questions are facing the FEC when it comes to how to enforce rules to keep foreign influence out of American democracy. Rick Hasen, a prominent election law and campaign finance attorney and professor at the University of California-Irvine, said that without a quorum, any chance of the FEC being able to respond to the threat of outside interference is gone.

Eugene Robinson: Trump's "foreign policy" is "an abdication of the U.S. position in the world"

Sound bite on MSNBC, so no link.

Eugene said that Trump doesn't understand relationships, doesn't care about them, and that his approach to foreign relations is an abdication of the U.S. position in the world.

He's one of a small handful of journalists who consistently boils everything down to the bare essence, a king of the 25 words or less method of cutting through the BS and rhetoric. One of my favorites.

Rep. Sean Duffy plans to save his newborn’s life using pre-existing conditions protections he tried to kill



https://www.rawstory.com/2019/08/rep-sean-duffy-plans-to-save-his-newborns-life-with-pre-existing-conditions-protections-he-tried-to-kill/

Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy (R) announced this week that he is stepping down from his House seat to care for his ninth child who is expected to be born with a heart condition.

Think Progress noted on Tuesday that Duffy and his wife, Rachel Campos-Duffy, plan to take advantage of the pre-existing conditions protections provided by President Barack Obama’s health care reform law.

Duffy’s child is expected to need surgery soon after birth.

As a congressman, Duffy repeatedly voted to kill the same protections that may now save his child’s life.

During his eight years in Congress, Duffy repeatedly voted to destroy Obamacare and undermine the pre-existing condition protections. He enthusiastically voted for Trumpcare in 2017, which would have made insurance coverage significantly less affordable for those with pre-existing conditions, and just this May he voted against the Protecting Americans with Preexisting Conditions Act of 2019.
