Ahhhh fresh kitty litter! Yes Dr. R they have crawled out from under the rocks because of the trends and of course the utter failure of the fakenewsmen. CNN, MSNBC in the discredited toilet pile.

To Froggy er fishy -- I hate the smell of poopy pants

To Duh Bestees the roads scholar -- According to a law passed in 1924, Certain Congressional committees have the authority to look at anyone's taxes. The law was specifically passed as a "check on corruption in the Executive Branch" and grew out of the Team Pot Dome Scandal. If trump is on the up and up there should be no reason for him not to provide his returns just to quell the public.. why isn't he just doing that? Shall we guess cement overshoes and similar behavior related to standing citizens like trump?

Its the ECONOMY STUPID!

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite rallied on Tuesday to notch record closing highs as Wall Street cheered stronger-than-expected quarterly profits from some of the largest publicly traded U.S. companies.
The broad index closed 0.9% higher at 2,933.68, topping its previous record close of 2,930.75. The S&P 500 also ended the day just below its intraday record of 2,940.91. The Nasdaq closed up 1.3% at 8,120.82. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, meanwhile, gained 145.34 points to close at 26,656.39 and was 1.1% from an all-time high.

From Boobie - "According to a law passed in 1924, Certain Congressional committees have the authority to look at anyone's taxes."
Details? The title of the actual law? What 'certain' committees?
Maybe 'anyone' but not for 'any reason'.
I know the left just loves the idea that any govt agency can do anything it wants, anytime it wants to, but we conservatives have a rather more - well - conservative view of govt powers.
I'd really love to see the evidence that Boobie has that Trump has broken the law re his tax returns.

Tax returns! Bobbie swings on and missed at that big hanging goose egg. Striiiiiikee.

There are times Congress can look at someone’s tax returns for legislative purposes, period. Committee members only in the cone of silence room with not recording devices,
No phones, no note taking, no experts, nothing allowed.. Not even a piece of paper.

From time to time, the Committee does look at a taxpayers returns to draft legislation.Take a look see to see how a tax policy will effect such and such billionaire or how loopholes are being exploited, etc. usually with the names are redacted. Legislation. We, as a nation of free men, give protecting the tax payer’ privacy the utmost priority. We protect the individuals from the prying eyes from everyone but the IRS. Civil liberties issue and no exception was made for POTUS or the man in the moon. Trump’s rights, my rights, your rights are at stake here. Look down the road.

Besides, Sarah Huckleberry Sanders nailed it. .Dems on that committee are too stupid to understand Trump’s tax returns.” There is something about Sarah. What are they going to do with a stack of returns from 500 businesses and which of a particular, say, a group of seven companies is the proportion of an expense or write-off allocated to the other six? Raises his own beef as well as own bottled water maker. Gets kinda complicated. But, it is unlawful to submit to the subpoena. Congress has an oversight and legislative function, not some unlimited investigation function. The need Mustice for that. Separation of powers. David vs Goliath. Trump, by example, is standing up for the little forgotten person and the Constitution of theses glorious United States

Lay out the legislative purpose for looking at Trump’s tax returns or go pound gravel. The law does not allow the Justice Department or Congress to go on a fishing expedition looking for a crime. You have to have pretty good evidence that a crime has been committed, Mueller and the FBI and DOJ and the attempted interference in our election to elect Hillary and when that did not work, the coup attempt to remove a duly elected POTUS not withstanding. And it’s still going on to is hour.

Silly me. Did I say go pound gravel? I meant go tongue someone’s bunghole.

I bet Trump payed little to no taxes some years.....all legal. Smart businessman. Heck, My Gal and Bubba’s 2nd home in NY is held in a trust account off shore. Cayman Islands or some spot on the map. Can’t lose it in lawsuit and the Truth pays all the expenses and taxes.

Panic is setting in

Team Trump is starting to panic:


Trump camp descends on Pennsylvania as alarms grow over 2020

The president’s team is set to meet with a state Republican Party riven by dissension.

"Trump's campaign is moving to shore up the state after 2018 midterm elections that saw Republicans get blown out in races up and down the ballot. Compounding the situation is a state party organization riven by turmoil and infighting.

The private meeting, confirmed by a half-dozen party officials, underscores the high stakes for the president in the state. Trump won Pennsylvania by less than 1 percentage point in 2016, and reelection aides view the state’s 20 electoral votes as crucial to his 2020 hopes. Pennsylvania also has symbolic significance: In 2016, Trump geared his campaign toward the state’s large proportion of blue-collar voters, many of whom had traditionally voted Democratic. "

Really Ozz, Todd is totally delusional about Trump. His poll numbers are anything but good, he's down by around 10 points in all consensus polls showing life only in the discredited Rasmussen poll. Remember Todd picket the Repubs to win seats in the House in a mid-term Red Wave, instead they lost 40.

Here's the key statement

The Paul Emery poll of one was, of course, the least accurate of all. Emerymath™ is a funny thing.

I don't even think of that as mattering very much. What I care about is consistency. An inaccurate poll can be much more predictive than a more accurate one. Throw in your correction factor of choice.

In any case, all the talk about polls is purely a redirection from the real story. Russia, Russia, Russia and the attempted and ongoing coup attempts against a legally elected President. That's where the real action is.

Ha! Who started it? Don't you get it, the Russians started it and are getting exactly what they wanted; strained relations between the US and Europe, tacit support for authoritarian regimes around the world from a US President, US withdrawal from global treaty and security agreements, chaos within the American political system that they can leverage to expand their control over eastern Europe and the middle east, and the gradual weakening of western liberal democracy, the only force that has even been an effective hedge against totalitarianism. The Special Council's report clearly lays out how the Russians are subverting US electoral politics. By sycophantically supporting the people who are taking advantage of Russian interference in US domestic affairs Todd and some of his crew are the useful idiots of the Russians. Well, at least since you have now influence, at a minimum, the village idiots of the Russians."

" The Special Council's report clearly lays out how the Russians are subverting US electoral politics".........if he did it would have hurt him nearly as much the time we wrung out of him an admission that George wasn't a racist!

“NPR spoke with Democrat voters across the country and discovered a tendency to project racial and sexist biases onto other people to defend their own support of a white male candidate.”

A pollster interviewed by NPR gave away the Democrats’ projections.

"It's very unusual," said the pollster, Celinda Lake. "Normally in the past, electability is a factor. But usually, people think whoever they like best is the most electable."

Saying someone you “like” isn’t the most electable is just a cover, allowing someone to virtue signal while still voting for the candidate they like most, who happens to be a straight white man.

You’ve been warned: “Upon being elected, I will give the United States Congress 100 days to get their act together and have the courage to pass gun-safety laws. And if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action.” —Sen. Kamala Harris

“How can we trust these people to read the full Mueller Report when they haven’t even read the Green New Deal? Which is five pages.” —Steven Crowder

For the record: “[Alexandria] Ocasio-Cortez rushed to politicize the horrific terrorist attacks in New Zealand last month, tweeting approximately 14 times about the attack. Ocasio-Cortez has not tweeted about the hundreds of Christians murdered at churches in Sri Lanka on Easter by Islamic terrorists.” —Ryan Saavedra

Friendly fire: “The winner of the economic argument in the last five presidential elections with swing voters has won the presidency. And I think … Bernie Sanders is unlikely … to stand up to the constant barrage that is Donald Trump on economic issues like that. … You have to excite your base and turn out people, and you have to win swing voters. … Today, you would say in a general election context, Bernie Sanders wouldn’t be that candidate.” —Obama campaign manager Jim Messina

Exhibit A: “If somebody commits a serious crime — sexual assault, murder — they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail for 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole lives. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

Alpha Jackass: “There is no excuse for terror attacks against innocent people but as a journalist I saw Western Christian missionaries unscrupulpusly [sic] converting Buddhist orphans for food and shelter after the Asian tsunami. Don’t send your prayers. … In fact prayers are proven beyond doubt to have no effect. What might help, however, is ending the Western campaign to convert people of other religions in exchange for charity.” —British TV star Andy West

The BIG Lie: “This president is a double-digit obstructor, according to the Mueller report, in the number of ways he sought to obstruct justice. Which leads me … to Attorney General Barr. You can be the attorney general of the United States and represent all of us, or you can represent Donald Trump. You can’t do both. And because Attorney General Barr wants to represent Donald Trump, I think he should resign.” —Rep. Eric Swalwell

I first suspected, now strongly believe, that the Leftinista Industrial Media & Entertainment Complex is more Left than their base...as well as (most) of the Clown Car candidates. Yes, Democrats, your candidates and leaders are really Socialists. Still, the base in this neck of the woods, with the exception of Bobbie Sue, is not as freaky as those who are their mouthpieces in media and politics.
Just tell any lib here that a councilperson in Nevada City practiced cultural appropriation by co-owning a Mexican restaurant, the Parade of Presidents glories slave owners, or the old iron relics of the mining heyday placed around the Berkeley of the Foothills celebrates the destruction of the environment and genocide of the Native Americans and you will get a blank stare back. They may be Leftinistas, but situational Leftinistas when it comes to their playground. Lefty, but not that far off the rails.
Money quote:
“Progressive elites and pundits would do better to consider how little Democrats believe identity matters to electability. Then again, they also would do better to realize that, while the Democratic Party is shifting leftward, it remains 56 percent white and 48 percent older than the age of 50. Indeed, whites without a college degree, whom the woke seem bent on pushing out, remain the largest segment of the Democratic Party. Perhaps the woke will own the party’s future; they have not won it yet..

Scenes. Rationalism itself is a racist concept

When the left took a more progressive turn, and branded critical identity theory as a guideline for perspective, policy, morality, and social interaction, classical liberals—who believe first and foremost in the rights of the individual and the necessity of critical thought—found they had no place left to call home within the party. These intellectuals became politically homeless. They were reading articles about the problems inherent in whiteness, how men and women were interchangeable based on feelings, how relative oppression levels shape everything, and about how Western culture is apparently the perpetration of pure evil.

“As the English-speaking intellectual world tightened up due to globalism, social media, the emergence of international online journals and podcasts, and the cross-pollination of writers and ideas, the IDW began to take shape. Writers who dissect ideas for a living were aghast to find that the work they had been doing was now to be viewed through lenses that had nothing to do with intellectual rigor, but were entirely about emotional realities based in grievance, oppression, and identity.”

“The shifting sands of progressive ideology, where morality shifts depending on the level of oppression of the person holding the moral view or the relative privilege being wielded in service to a moral perspective, does not meld with rational thought. In fact, recently many on the left have begun asserting that rationalism itself is a racist concept, born of whiteness in the Enlightenment, and that its shackles need to be cast off. Some years ago, the very concept of debate was countered by student groups who attended debates, then refused to debate according to the standard terms, instead throwing down spoken word on the basis that the structure of debate itself was racist.

“What can intellectuals do when everything they believe in regarding individual liberty is recast as cultural imperialism? They find themselves cast out, politically homeless, and yes, aghast when the very foundations upon which they have ever thought everything—foundations based in philosophy, dialectical theory, Kantian metaphysics, Judeo-Christian morality, and then thought about and rethought again for clarity toward human equality—are thrown out for no other reason than that those who conceived of these things are now considered oppressors..

Best quote of the week goes to Scenes!

“At least Ms. Cooper appears to be on time for seconds.”

More Daily Quotes, albeit none can complete with Scenes @ 1:51 pm.

Upright: “I think there are two big reasons why this country is so great. The first is our Constitution, which guarantees our freedom of speech and expression. The second is our free-market system. … It pains me to see people in this country glorifying socialism. Young people especially have been indoctrinated into believing that free enterprise is immoral because it enriches the greedy and depresses the poor.” —Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus

For the record: “There’s no collusion, says the special counsel. That takes one sentence. It doesn’t take 200 damn pages. It doesn’t take $35 million dollars.” —Mark Levin

Braying Jenny: “I’m more Palestinian in the halls of Congress than I am anywhere in the country [and] in the world. ” —Rep. Rashida Tlaib

Non compos mentis: “Tourist mecca Notre Dame also revered as place of worship.” —AP headline

Demo-gogues: “I accept that there’s a humanitarian crisis that is being caused by this president. There is a humanitarian crisis when you throw children into cages and separate families. That’s a human-rights violation. We can keep our country safe and strong and honor human rights as well.” —Sen. Cory Booker

Tone-deaf: “I think there’s enough [in the Mueller report] that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted.” —Hillary Clinton, who actually broke the law on numerous occasions without being indicted

The BIG Lie: “When it comes to the VA, all I can think of is that classic refrain that my parents always told me growing up. Which is that, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ … This thing … provides the highest quality care to our veterans.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Braying Jackass: “While I am a progressive feminist, I have often debated folks who are citing the Bible and shouting out Sodom and Gomorrah. That’s something they always say. And I would always push back and say, ‘Listen, if Jesus is so great, why weren’t you nicer? Why aren’t you kinder?’ … Jesus needs new PR. I always had that line growing up. Because, honestly, I think what Mayor Pete [Buttigieg] is doing — he is demonstrating how to actually be a Christian, to embrace people, to be more compassionate. I think that’s an example that crosses partisan boundaries actually.” —MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell

Re: The Left: “I am thankful [Rep. Ilhan] Omar and her family and countless others were able to escape to neighboring Kenya while we fought to protect those left behind, but I simply cannot comprehend her attitude towards those of us who fought to protect her country and countrymen from warlords who plunged Somalia only further into violence and starvation. I am glad that Omar can now enjoy the very freedoms we fought to protect, like the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion affirmed in the U.S. Constitution, but I don’t understand why she uses those freedoms to slur the men and women of the U.S. military who made her security and liberty a reality.” —Sergeant Major Kyle E. Lamb (USA retired) rebutting Omar’s ridiculous assertions about Mogadishu

And last… “The biggest problem America faces are lost adults whose bizarre beliefs are saturating an entire generation of impressionable young minds.” —Rebecca Hagelin

BillT 212pm - Mr Tozer, what these fine counter arguments (e.g. from the Federalist) always miss in refuting the refutation of reason is the most persuasive and impossible to (sanely) dismiss argument. The kind of reason that they/we cite is the same kind (maps one-to-one) with the kind of reason that founds mathematics and science, and forms the basis for all the good things technology has provided us over the last three plus centuries. I don't think any of these sensitive and inclusive progressives would want to give up their comforts and gadgets in support of the pabulum which constitute their arguments.

Bill Tozer

“BTW, it appears that the number of leftwing readers regularly contributing to comment streams now outnumbers those leaning to starboard. We've always known that the Left are assiduous RR readers, but usually they don't want to debate their politics. How did such an outrageous fortune afflict us?” gjr]—lead-in to the current Sandbox

That usually happens about 18 hours after they (the Leftinistas) are dealt a big set back when their much hyped predictions and unwarranted arrogance blows up in their faces...time and time again.

Why debate Bobbie? Yes, Congress can subpoena the tax records of anyone they choose.....provided it is for legislative purposes. The last part is confidently omitted every time. Be it out of ignorance, misinformed, or malice, I do not hazard a guess.

Ozz mostly comes over here to stalk Todd. Wherever Todd goes, Ozzz is sure to follow. Ozz generally offers nothing to a debate. And Punchy, Punchy, Punchy. Breaks my heart to see what untreated psychosis (or sheep syphilis) can do a man. Not that he had much to work with from the get-go. Oh well.

Perhaps I am pissing in the wind. Or, at times, pissing against the wind. When I post from the Federalist, it is not for the Leftinistas to read. I rest assured they would never click on such a link. If they did, it would quickly dismissed and jump to polls or Orange Man Bad. My goal is not to win converts, but to say the same thing we have been observing all along, but from different folks with different voices and perspectives......and to save typing as we watch the destruction of culture, language, borders.

The man who wrote the AP History textbook: James W. Fraser.

“Fraser’s] most striking claim [in his contribution to the book “Mentoring the Mentor: A Critical Dialogue with Paulo Freire”] is that the textbooks used under Eastern European Communism were excellent in substance, even if their lessons were hammered home too harshly by teachers: “…in their critique of capitalism and imperialism, in their sophisticated approach to anti-Semitism, Fascism, and revolutionary struggle — [Eastern European communist textbooks] represented a very liberating view of the world…But sadly the pedagogy was as repressive as the content was liberating.”

“This is a stunning claim. Fraser believes that if only Eastern Europeans had taught communism in a less authoritarian manner, a public freed from the Soviet yoke might not have rejected communism for capitalism. That is, Fraser sees the turn to capitalism by Eastern Europe as an avoidable “tragedy” caused by the unnecessarily harsh teaching methods of communist schools.”......

“Not surprisingly, then, Fraser rejects the notion of the teacher as an even-handed purveyor of knowledge. Instead, “the teacher must begin with a commitment to social and political liberation.” Education is a form of “revolutionary struggle.”

“So is Fraser’s AP U.S. History textbook. Fraser’s attack on Trump and his supporters, disgusting as it is, expresses mainstream liberal talking points. But the book is more radical than that. Says Stanley, it “present[s] every leftist movement of the time in glowing, uncritical terms.”

Of course not, it's a lot to ask for your average person to read something they don't agree with. Personally, I've spent a lot of time in the democraticundergrounds of the world, but the tears are invigorating.

One thing that would be fun to watch would be to instrument a Blue Mobster's brain while they read the more heinous articles in places like thecollegefix.com . I mean, no sane person could justify a lot of the insane happenings on the modern campus, but you really don't want to criticize the other members of your lodge.

Mukasey, however, fired back that it was Cuomo and his network that proposed the report itself and the information within it in a misleading way.

"That letter came at a time when, no criticism of you, but your network were devoting days of people sitting around and talking about a report that they didn't — whose content they didn't know, that they hadn't seen, in essence, panels of people sitting around a table inhaling their own exhaust and getting high on it," Mukasey said.

"The country was in a state of absolute hysteria. You had a countdown clock in the corner of not one but several networks about the release of the report. He did the responsible thing," Mukasey said of Barr.

Mukasey then clarified that he meant the special counsel could not exonerate Trump, rather than vindicate. On that note, he argued, that it is not even the special counsel's job to exonerate anyone, because that job lies within the realm of a higher power.

"It is, in fact, not the job of any counsel or anybody else to exonerate. God does that. Even juries that return acquittals don’t come back and say innocent, they say not guilty," Mukasey continued.

Speaking of consummate progressive insanity on college campuses; at Yale a simple disagreement between two (possibly looney) female students in a dorm led to the adding on of a whole new administrative bureaucracy under the new "deputy secretary for diversity, equity, and inclusion." But don't go away yet, you have to read through ALL of the following.

"These new positions come on top of Yale’s existing diversity bureaucracy: a deputy provost for faculty diversity and development; the president’s committee on diversity and inclusion; the president’s committee on racial and ethnic harassment; the diversity and inclusion working group; the Yale College Intercultural Affairs Council; the director, representative, and support specialist of equal opportunity programs; the chief diversity officer; the associate dean for graduate-student development and diversity in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the assistant director of diversity in that same school; the associate dean for graduate student development and diversity in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences; the assistant director of diversity and inclusion in the Law School; the director of community and inclusion in the School of Management; the deputy dean for diversity and inclusion in the School of Medicine; the assistant dean of community and inclusion in the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies; the associate vice president for student life (a diversity function); the Student Advisory Group on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; sundry Title IX coordinators; and the directors of the Afro-American Cultural Center, the Asian American Cultural Center, the Latino Cultural Center and the Native American Cultural Center. ... In addition to the new hires, the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity and Transnational Migration will receive further funding for diversity events and speakers." More here -

Dagnapit! Your WSJ post is behind the paywall. If I am going to play, I gotta pay. However, I see your massive college bureaucratic administrative state, and raise you one solitary college lecturer. This one takes the cake.

“Rashatwar — who identifies as "nonbinary" and "queer" — railed against "diet culture" and "fat phobia" and "size-ism" and "weight bias" and "body-image abuse" and a "rich thin ideal," tying it all to white supremacy, capitalism, classism, and even a "police state" that engages in "social control."

“She also implied that it's wrong to make health the responsibility of each individual, saying such thinking is a product of the 1980s and the policies touted by former President Ronald Reagan. Instead, Rashatwar said there should be "social supports that also help me to subsidize my food costs."

Rashatwar also said that "fat phobic science" is often "eugenic science" and that "eugenic science is Nazi science."

“Underscoring her point, she actually brought up the individual responsible for the Christchurch massacre in New Zealand, noting that she finds it unsurprising that he "was also a fitness instructor."

George Rebane

BillT 444pm - I'm afraid Mr Tozer that I will have to concede - you win. This person has a number of obvious deficits, but her biggest problem seems to be an overarching refrigerator IQ. Among her minor gaffs is stating that "eugenic science is a Nazi science". Actually eugenics was refined and practiced in the US at the turn and early part of the last century. It was from America that Adolph got the idea in the 1920s, for which he had more admiration for the Americans.

The Yale story led me to this:

https://www.thecollegefix.com/middlebury-administrators-apologize-to-students-pledge-to-try-and-prevent-right-wing-guest-speakers/

but I really liked this part:

"During the meeting, students voiced frustration at the fact that Legutko was invited to campus and at “white male” professors for the so-called educational violence they inflict, among other topics.

In response, the three administrators did not tell these students that college is a time of hearing differing opinions or having difficult conversations, but rather agreed with and apologized to the students and pledged to work to address their concerns.

“I hear you, and you should be outraged, and we should acknowledge that and apologize, because that’s the least we can do right now, because we can’t make it right in the moment. But in the future we will do everything we can to make it right,” an administrator told the students."
-------------

I'd really like to know if the college staff really thinks this kind of nonsense is good or if they're mostly just doing whatever it takes to hang onto what is really quite a sweet gig.

The Blue Mob is so crazy that it gives me hope. Belief systems that are this stupid simply can't last forever. Sadly, they can probably last longer than me.

“The abuse and fear teachers are experiencing in the classroom are not unique to the UK. Many American schools offer similar chaotic environments, putting teachers at risk and making them “feel powerless to discipline” the students in their charge.

“Why the sudden change? Why has the teaching profession turned into a landmine which could send a dedicated professional to the hospital with an injury or nervous breakdown brought on by abuse?..........

“The question is, who will we allow to be in charge: the teachers or the students? If the latter, then we shouldn’t be surprised when teaching becomes a toxic profession that no one wants to enter. But if the former, then perhaps it’s time to reassess, step away from coddling our students, and begin reinstating a culture of respect for parents and teachers alike.”

This is interesting and well-compiled. You never know what the mail will bring:
"If you are a Democrat especially a Bernie Sanders supporter or just a plain Democrat who believes in fair elections you must see this and if you are a Republican you will know even more how secretly and carefully crafted this plan went into action. Our electoral process has been so badly damaged that many Americans have lost confidence if elections are ever truly fair.More than nine months after the FBI opened its highly classified counterintelligence investigation into alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, FBI lawyer Lisa Page said investigators still could not say whether there was collusion, according to a transcript of Page’s recent closed-door deposition. The film ends with this statement: Now is the time to heal. If you have fallen out with someone over the past few years over political differences, or if you have pushed away someone close to you because of their opinions, now is the time to realize that it wasn’t their fault, and they were tricked. Don’t school them anymore, just love so we can start to heal."

Daily Quotes

For the record: “We have, in many ways, almost fallen victim to our own successes in health care. Vaccines work, and work so well, that the diseases they’re meant to prevent have faded from our collective memories. Instead of knowing children in our classes forever changed by polio, as parents, we fear side effects from the very treatments meant to spare our children from harm and danger. This false equivalency is ultimately leaving more babies and vulnerable people exposed and at risk, without protection from a vaccinated population around them.” —Holly Scheer

Alpha Jackass: “It’s a national disgrace that Trump sleeps in the White House instead of a federal prison cell, but it has been a while since I had any expectation that the special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings, many of which were finally released to the public on Thursday, could set things right.” —New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg

Braying Jenny: “Congress should hold substantive hearings that build on the Mueller report and fill in its gaps, not jump straight to an up-or-down vote on impeachment. In 1998, the Republican-led House rushed to judgment. That was a mistake then and would be a mistake now. Watergate offers a better precedent.” —Hillary Clinton in an op-ed giving advice on following up to Mueller’s report (Sheerly by coincidence, we’re sure, Watergate was when Democrats ousted a Republican president.)

Collusion! “What’s clear from this administration, and what’s clear throughout the entirety of his business practices, is that they will lie, cheat, and steal. They’ll do anything to win. They have so eroded institutions of democracy. We have to be prepared for lying, cheating, and stealing. They have an approach to undermining our democracy that is shameful and that is why we are organizing everywhere. That is why we are preparing for every eventuality.” —DNC Chairman Tom Perez

Friendly fire: “I have a hard time seeing the [Bernie Sanders] coalition ultimately coming together.” —Pete Buttigieg

Gender bait: “I will have a woman running mate. To me it’s really clear that we do that.” —Sen. Cory Booker

“Not radical” doesn’t make it moral: “More than 30 countries around the world today such as Canada, South Africa and Finland allow prisoners to vote. This is not a radical idea. Every American citizen must be able to vote. Period.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

Non compos mentis: “I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex. … I do not think it’s surprising that the man who shot up Christchurch, New Zealand, was also a fitness instructor. … Nazis really love this idea of an idealized body, and so it makes a lot of sense to me that a fitness instructor … might also think about an idealized body in this thin white supremacist way.” —"Fat Sex Therapist" Sonalee Rashatwar at St. Olaf College
