FBI Director James Comey has been fired

FBI Director James Comey has been fired, according to the White House.

"Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office," the White House statement reads.


"President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions," the statement said.

In addition to a statement, the White House released the letter that Trump wrote directly to Comey dismissing him at the recommendation of the attorney general and the deputy attorney general, "effective immediately."

"While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau," Trump wrote.

You're going down, asshole.

Special Act Blue/Kos Fund targeting House GOP hits 1 MILLION IN 24 HOURS!

This is unbelievable. No, not that House Republicans voted to take health care from 24 million people and then celebrated with beer and a White House photo op—that’s all too believable—but the productive fury with which the grassroots responded. In just over 24 hours, the Daily Kos fundraising effort targeting 24 vulnerable Republicans who voted for Trumpcare has raised $1 million. That is one million dollars from more than 21,000 small donors. As Daily Kos political director David Nir said Thursday, and the community followed through on, “We will raise in five hours what we raised for Jon Ossoff in a week and for Elizabeth Warren in a year.”

This isn’t just about the money that will go to the eventual Democratic nominees facing those 24 Republicans, though that’s an important piece of the puzzle. This is also about sending a message to Republicans, including Senate Republicans, that voting against affordable health care will have consequences. So it’s important that the word gets out about what the Democratic grassroots is doing here—at Daily Kos and elsewhere. And yes, word is getting out.

The Atlantic: “Democrats target vulnerable Republicans over Obamacare repeal vote.”

Vox: “’I’ve never seen anything like this’: progressives see huge donation spike after AHCA vote.”

Washington Examiner: “Liberals raise $2 million off GOP healthcare bill.”

Business Insider: “Democratic groups raised millions for 2018 after House Republicans passed their healthcare overhaul.”

"Want to take immediate revenge on House Republicans who voted to destroy health care? Here's how"

From Kos.
There is a special contribution button for Act Blue in the article. Follow the link to stick it to these swine.

Moat satisfying $25 I've ever spent.


"We’ve identified the following 24 “yes” votes as among the most endangered Republicans up for re-election next year, so we’re adding all of these districts to our new slate of nominee funds:

District Republican District Republican
AZ-02 McSally, Martha IL-06 Roskam, Peter
CA-10 Denham, Jeff IL-13 Davis, Rodney
CA-21 Valadao, David IL-14 Hultgren, Randy
CA-25 Knight, Steve KS-03 Yoder, Kevin
CA-39 Royce, Ed MI-11 Trott, Dave
CA-45 Walters, Mimi MN-02 Lewis, Jason
CA-48 Rohrabacher, Dana MN-03 Paulsen, Erik
CA-49 Issa, Darrell NE-02 Bacon, Don
FL-25 Diaz-Balart, Mario NJ-11 Frelinghuysen, Rodney
FL-26 Curbelo, Carlos TX-07 Culberson, John
IA-01 Blum, Rod TX-32 Sessions, Pete
IA-03 Young, David VA-02 Taylor, Scott
A big surge in donations now would have huge salutary effects right away: It would both terrify Republicans and boost Democratic efforts to recruit good candidates. Of course, it would also help us defeat these Republicans next year. And as it happens, 24 is exactly the number of seats we need to take back the House.

So make them pay: Donate $1 right now to each of the Democratic nominee funds targeting vulnerable House Republicans who voted to destroy access to health care."

And in the latest Russian election rigging news...

FSB’s infiltration of political party Parnas aimed at Norway


It sounds like a crime novel. And clearly, it has the elements of a scary book. However, this story is real, says Andrey Kapitonov, the former party leader in Murmansk.

In what appears as a surrealistic-like conspiracy against the liberal political party Parnas, the FSB first managed to hire Kapitonov and make him establish a local party office. Then Kapitonov was sent to the Norwegian border town of Kirkenes where he was to approach the Norwegian secret police PST and request financial support. Later, when back in Murmansk, Kapitonov was to announce that his party was nursing contact with NATO country Norway and receiving money from a foreign intelligence service.

It was in the run-up to the September 2016 State Duma elections, and the operation was to defame Parnas as a party supported by the abroad and discredit Norway as a country meddling in Russian domestic politics.

However, it all flopped.

Kapitonov changed his mind, and quit his cooperation with the agents. Instead, he turned against the security service and has now sueded the agents behind the setup.

In an interview with Barents Observer, the now former party leader says that the scam was not primarily aimed against Parnas. It was Norway which was the main target, he argues.

Election tampering seems to be the usual Russian m.o..




Trump's approval rating at the 100-day mark is the lowest in modern history

Trump's approval rating at the 100-day mark is the lowest in modern history
Sonam Sheth Apr 29, 2017, 10:40 AM ET

President Trump's approval rating as he reaches the 100-day mark of his tenure is at 43%, the lowest of any president since 1953.

Presidents typically enjoy higher approval ratings at the start of their terms following successful presidential campaigns. Those ratings then tend to decrease over time. However, coming off a contentious 2016 election campaign and having lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million, Trump entered office with a record-low approval rating of 45%.

Since then, his administration has seen a slew of negative headlines after an unsuccessful attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the rollout of a travel ban that was struck down by multiple courts and sparked nationwide protests, the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn, and an ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russia.

Trump is Still Campaigning!

The "rally" in Harrisburg spotlights this aholes massive ego.

The press is being mean to poor Donnie, and being the over the top malignant narcissist he is, he must have continuous approval (he sure isn't getting it in the polls), and affirmation that he is a "winner" (though he lost the popular vote.)

He is already crying about how "hard" it is being President (though he doesn't show up for things like intelligence briefings.) Having to actually pretend to work is pure culture shock for this self absorbed man-baby.

Good luck, America.

The government shutdown looks like it will hinge on Trump's border wall

Whether the federal government shuts down Friday could hinge on whether Congress includes funding for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall in legislation to keep the government funded.

Trump and administration officials have spent recent days talking up the possibility of including funding for a wall, which could set up a showdown with Democrats and even members of his party as the clock ticks toward a shutdown.

Asked by The Associated Press on Friday whether he would sign a bill that did not include funding for the wall, Trump was noncommittal.

"I don't know yet," Trump said. "People want the border wall. My base definitely wants the border wall. My base really wants it - you've been to many of the rallies. OK, the thing they want more than anything is the wall."

I am convinced this clown is working for Putin.

His first 100 days have been spent using every power of office he has to dismantle and disrupt the funtion of the government our taxes pay for.
