Sadly, Republicans can and will confirm this earth destroyer, but Jeff is doing the right thing to expose what they are doing. Oregon leads the way! RESIST!!

From NY Times: An Alabama woman accused Roy S. Moore on Monday of sexually assaulting her when she was 16, the fifth and most brutal charge leveled against the Republican Senate candidate. Senate Republicans are now openly discussing not seating him or expelling him if he wins the Dec. 12 special election.

The new accuser, Beverly Young Nelson, told a packed news conference in New York that Mr. Moore attacked her when she was a teenager and he was a prosecutor in Etowah County, Ala. Ms. Nelson was represented at the news conference by Gloria Allred, a lawyer who has championed victims of sexual harassment.

After that, even Bought Bitch Mitch condemned Moore, but he says Trump should take care of it. What will Trump do? Swap pictures with Moore? RESIST!!

I’m on an unusual schedule this morning.  I woke up, like usual, at 5:00.  I had a bad case of Republicosis, so I dressed, got out of bed, and motored down to the bathroom in record time.  I almost didn’t make.  I’ve been back three more times and taken two doses ode Immodium AD.  I feel like going back to bed, but I dare not do so, before the Imodium kicks in.  So I’ll do all my blogging early and hope I can lie down later.

From YouTube (GQ Channel): Trump is Lying About Russia

 

Of course Trump is both lying and guilty. We’re just waiting for the shoe to drop and to see who does what about it. RESIST!!

From Addicting Info: In his infamous dossier, former British spy Michael Steele alleged that Trump had paid prostitutes to come up to his room and urinate on one another on a bed that Barack and Michelle Obama once shared. Steele claimed at the time that the incident was filmed and would be used by the Kremlin as “kompromat” (compromising material).

Award-winning British journalist Paul Wood reports for The Spectator that not only do multiple witnesses confirm the pee pee tape, but there are more extreme recordings of Donald Trump than just a couple of Russian girls urinating:

I heard of Russian kompromat — compromising material — on Trump from two sources months before the Steele dossier came to light.

There are, though, reports of witnesses in the hotel who corroborate Steele’s reporting. These include an American who’s said to have seen a row with the hotel security over whether the hookers would be allowed up to Trump’s suite. The dossier’s account of hookers in a Moscow hotel room was the subject of gossip among politicians and intelligence people for months before it was published.

“Now claims are circulating of more tapes showing more extreme behavior. Expect these allegations to emerge in due course,” Wood says cryptically.  [emphasis added]

I have no desire to see Putin’s Piddle Puppet on the pee-pee tapes myself, but I want them on display for everyone to see.  I want then on the news, and I want them on a wide-screen outside every Republican Supply-side pseudo-Church in the country. RESIST!!

From NY Times: A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked a White House policy barring military service by transgender troops, ruling that it was based on “disapproval of transgender people generally.”

Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia found the administration’s justification for the ban, which was set to take effect in March 2018, to be suspect and likely unconstitutional. She ruled that the military’s current policy should remain in place.

“There is absolutely no support for the claim that the ongoing service of transgender people would have any negative effective on the military at all,” the judge wrote in a strongly worded, 76-page ruling. “In fact, there is considerable evidence that it is the discharge and banning of such individuals that would have such effects.”

Kudos to the judge!  RESIST!!

I’m feeling much better today.  I think I was just overly tired in addition to fall allergies that seem to bother me every year around this time.  I planned my grocery list and placed my order with Store to door.  The sun is hitting the wall, and I may actually have to crank on the AC because of it.

I was five for five. How about you? Jeff has forgotten very little about the environment, but he has forgotten more than Republicans ever learned, by choice. Oregon leads the way! RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Calling himself “unbelievably brave,” Donald Trump said on Monday that he is the only President in U.S. history with the courage to stand up to war widows.

“You look at guys like Obama and Clinton and the Bushes, when it came to war widows, they all blinked,” he said. “For years, we weren’t winning at widows.”

In contrast, Trump said, he has made defeating war widows one of his top priorities as President. “Forget about Iran and China and Little Rocket Man,” he said. “This country has been pushed around by war widows for far too long.”

Trump said that Senator John McCain, who has mocked the President’s draft-dodging during Vietnam, has “never shown an ounce of courage when it comes to fighting war widows.”

Andy, that just may be exactly how the Orange Outrage and his Republican Reich see it. RESIST!!

Trump is the Harvey Weinstein of the World, but why no outrage from the Reich?  Keith forgot one key element of the Republican world view. IOKIYAR! RESIST!!

From YouTube (MoveOn Channel): Good News: Voting Rights

 

Oregon leads the way! RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Just minutes after the publisher Larry Flynt offered ten million dollars in exchange for information leading to Donald Trump’s impeachment, Trump contacted Flynt and said that he would gladly provide the information himself in exchange for the cash.

According to Flynt, shortly after their phone conversation Trump sent him a voluminous number of e-mails, phone records, and other evidence of impeachable offenses, after which Flynt wired ten million dollars to Trump’s Swiss bank account.

“That was a lot easier than I thought it would be, to be honest,” Flynt told reporters.

The swift denouement to Trump’s tenure in the White House raised more than a few eyebrows in Washington, with some insiders wondering if Trump’s eagerness to accept the ten-million-dollar payment indicated that his net worth was considerably smaller than he had professed.

Andy, his net worth is way less than he claims. Even if Trump owns $billions, he is worth less than a wormy dawg turd! RESIST!!

From YouTube (GQ Channel): The Truth About Pence’s Despicable NFL Stunt

 

Into what they will turn this nation, if we don’t stop them, is a totalitarian, plutocratic, theocratic, white supremacist Republican Reich! RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: A poll taken after Vice-President Mike Pence made headlines on Sunday with an abrupt early departure reveals that a broad majority of Americans hope that Donald Trump follows Pence’s example and leaves early, as well.

In a striking result, the poll shows that Trump’s early exit would be approximately a thousand times more popular than the one Pence participated in on Sunday.

While Pence defended his decision to leave early on Sunday by saying that he did it out of patriotism, a substantial majority of Americans agreed that a premature departure by Trump “would be, by far, the most patriotic thing he could ever do for his country.”

And while the price tag of Pence’s departure on Sunday, estimated by some to be approximately a quarter of a million dollars, raised eyebrows across the country, poll respondents overwhelmingly said that they do not care how much Trump’s departure costs, as long as he leaves.

Andy, what can I say? AMEN!! RESIST!!

From NY Times: This past week, reports that Harvey Weinstein had sexually harassed women for years came to light, making it crystal clear that not every woman in Hollywood has had the chance to walk our path. Abuse, threats and coercion have been the norm for so many women trying to do business or make art. Mr. Weinstein may be the most powerful man in Hollywood to be revealed as a predator, but he’s certainly not the only one who has been allowed to run wild. His behavior, silently co-signed for decades by employees and collaborators, is a microcosm of what has been happening in Hollywood since always and of what workplace harassment looks like for women everywhere.

In spite of his support for many progressive causes, I hope that he is severely punished for his abuse of women, and is, in the process, given the therapy he needs to learn that women are individuals to be respected, not objects to be used. Republicans have been saying Democrats are hypocrites because we cover-up for Democratic abusers. This is not so. The only difference in my attitude between Weinstein and Resident Pussy Grabber is that there is no need to impeach Weinstein, who deserves to be treated like a Republican, because he is acting just like one. RESIST!!
