Devin Nunes: Questioning Kavanaugh signals 'collapse of the republic'

By Tommy Christopher - October 1, 2018

As the FBI investigates Kavanaugh, Devin Nunes is saying it's 'dangerous' for senators to even look at evidence against the nominee.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) took time away from undermining the Russia investigation to run interference for Brett Kavanaugh by saying that Democrats questioning Kavanaugh’s conduct in high school constitutes a threat to the republic.

On Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine” this weekend, host Jeanine Pirro played some tape of Trump mocking Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) performance at Kavanaugh’s hearing, and asked Nunes for his “take.”

“What you are seeing is the collapse of institutions in this country,” Nunes said.

He added that when “you have senators talking about high school yearbooks, you are watching the collapse of the Senate, a collapse of the republic. It’s a really, really dangerous place we are in.”

Nunes also praised the conspiracy theories that Kavanaugh laid out during his belligerent and unhinged opening statement. In fact, he called Kavanaugh’s rant “amazing.”

Trump team quietly ships kids to tent cities so they can't run away

By Bernie Dennler III - October 1, 2018

Children are being rounded up in the dead of night and sent to a huge Texas tent city, where they have no access to education and few legal protections.

Hundreds of unaccompanied minors have been ripped from well-regulated shelters in the dead of night and dumped into a mostly unregulated desert tent city, according to a new report by The New York Times.

Thanks to the Trump administration’s cruel immigration policies, the population of unaccompanied minor children being detained by the U.S. has skyrocketed fivefold since last year. To accommodate this surge, children are being moved out of licensed shelters and into a large desert encampment in Tornillo, Texas.

At the licensed shelters, which are monitored by state welfare agencies, kids received schooling and even regular legal assistance. But those basic services get stripped away from the children who are moved to Tornillo.

Understandably, many children don’t want to be put in that position. That’s why they are being smuggled away in the dead of night, shelter workers told the Times — to prevent escape attempts.

Trump Cabinet secretary logged 290 hours of mysterious 'private' time

By Eric Boehlert - October 1, 2018

Elaine Chao has taken the equivalent of weeks of vacation in 'private' meetings.

Trump’s Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao has already put in nearly 300 hours of “private” time while serving as a Cabinet member.

The highly unusual practice raises all sorts of questions about how Chao is spending her time as a taxpayer-paid public official.

“In total, Chao clocked more than 290 hours of appointments labeled private — the equivalent of about seven weeks’ vacation — during her first 14 months in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet, based on a review of documents provided under the Freedom of Information Act,” Politico reports.

There’s a suspicion that Chao just isn’t work that hard, as she constantly fills up her Friday afternoon schedules with “private time” meetings. Either that or Chao and her office are purposefully trying to hide from the public what she’s doing as secretary of transportation.

Maybe her and her husband are having private meetings with the Russian to fund other private meetings.............maybe they took trips over to the International Republican Institute over in Russia, after all some people on the staff, thought being an agent for the Russians was just fine and dandy.......just like what Reagan would have wanted ............

I really do dislike this union busting witch...................POS, just like her husband, another POS ................





November 2018 cannot get here fast enough...............vote, even if her asshole husband isn't on the ballot.............

California enacts strongest net neutrality protections in the country as Trump administration files

By JAZMINE ULLOA

SEP 30, 2018 | 7:10 PM

| SACRAMENTO


Gov. Jerry Brown has restored net neutrality rules in California that were repealed under the Trump administration, setting up a legal battle with the federal government over whether states can prevent companies from blocking access to the internet.

The ambitious new law, which was signed by Brown late Sunday and takes effect Jan. 1, prohibits broadband and wireless companies from blocking, throttling or otherwise hindering access to internet content, and from favoring some websites over others by charging for faster speeds. It prompted a quick and aggressive response from Trump administration officials, who have sued to block the regulations.

“Under the Constitution, states do not regulate interstate commerce — the federal government does,” Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions said in a statement issued Sunday. “Once again the California legislature has enacted an extreme and illegal state law attempting to frustrate federal policy.”

Ajit Pai, the Trump-appointed chairman of the Federal Communications Commission who over nine months worked to shelve the federal net neutrality regulations, said he was pleased with the lawsuit, pointing to a federal courts appellate ruling that he said found “state regulation of information services is preempted by federal law.”

Hey Sessions, your ilk doesn't like the Constitution remember, after all you did lie in front of a confirmation hearing, and just for historical reference maybe you should read Nancy Macleans book: Democracy in Chains
THE DEEP HISTORY OF THE RADICAL RIGHT’S STEALTH PLAN FOR AMERICA

Because your ilk have been following James Buchanan model since he created it with his libertarian policies, that states rights over ride federal rights....................




Otis Rush, Seminal Chicago Blues Guitarist, Dead at 84

Source: Rolling Stone

Otis Rush, one of the pioneering guitarists of the Chicago blues scene, died Saturday from complications from a stroke he suffered in 2003. He was 84.

Rush’s wife, Masaki Rush, confirmed her husband’s death on his website. A note read, “Known as a key architect of the Chicago ‘West Side Sound’ Rush exemplified the modernized minor key urban blues style with his slashing, amplified jazz-influenced guitar playing, high-strained passionate vocals and backing by a full horn section. Rush’s first recording in 1956 on Cobra Records ‘I Can’t Quit You Baby’ reached Number on the Billboard R&B Charts and catapulted him to international acclaim. He went on to record a catalog of music that contains many songs that are now considered blues classics.”

Rush became a staple of the Chicago scene in the late Fifties and early Sixties, partnering first with Cobra Records, which was also home to artists like Magic Sam and Buddy Guy. Their take on the blues would prove to be a revelation for a generation of artists to follow, while Rush would become a totem for countless rock guitarists (he was placed at Number 53 on Rolling Stone‘s list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists). Notably, Rush’s signature style – long, dramatically bent notes – was in part a product of his unique playing approach: A left-handed guitarist who played his guitar upside-down, placing the low E string at the bottom and the high E string on top.

In 1968, Mike Bloomfield summed up Rush’s influence, telling Rolling Stone that in Chicago, “the rules had been laid down” for young, white blues bands: “You had to be as good as Otis Rush.”

"Jobs Alliance," Funded by Trump Backer, Tries to Block Gas Plants That Would Bring Jobs to West Vir

Murray Energy, one of the nation’s largest coal producers, is paying for lawyers trying to block natural gas plants that would support a growing industry.
by Ken Ward Jr., The Charleston Gazette-Mail Sept. 28, 5 a.m. EDT

This article was produced in partnership with the Charleston Gazette-Mail, which is a member of the ProPublica Local Reporting Network.

Three years ago, a group of residents in West Virginia’s northern panhandle formed a new group, the Ohio Valley Jobs Alliance, and declared themselves a “voice for local jobs.”

A few months later, however, the group’s first major action was aimed not at creating jobs, but at blocking them.

In November 2015, the alliance, known as the OVJA, filed a legal appeal to challenge a key permit for construction of the Moundsville Power project, a natural gas-fired plant in Marshall County.

The move was puzzling. Backers of Moundsville Power said the project would be a significant boost for the area, providing 500 jobs annually during a three-year construction period and 30 permanent jobs once it was operational. Supporters said the project was a way for residents to capture more economic gains from West Virginia’s booming natural gas industry.

How long can Susan Collins keep lying to herself about Kavanaugh?

By Caroline Orr - September 28, 2018

Collins seems to have invented a version of Brett Kavanaugh that doesn't exist.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) appears to be getting pretty desperate to find a way to justify a potential vote in favor of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, even as his confirmation to the court becomes more imperiled.

But rather than, say, not voting for him, Collins seems to have invented a fictional version of Kavanaugh to give herself permission to support him without admitting that she’s betraying her own promise to defend women’s rights.

For one thing, despite her insistence that she has an open mind when it comes to Kavanaugh’s accusers, and despite reportedly expressing concern in private about the accusations, Collins has been shockingly dismissive in the face of evidence that corroborates the allegations against Kavanaugh.

When presented with excerpts from Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook that appear to contain references to another potential victim, Collins feigned ignorance — and cast aspersions on Ford instead.

“There are rumors — there are so many rumors — that there are issues with Christine Ford’s yearbook as well,” Collins said.
