Another LIVE KITM today! And, another tomorrow. The next day? Who knows? (Maybe we will by Tuesday...)
ProPublica and David Waldman reveal Trump staffing’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” ethics compliance certification.
Greg Dworkin tells us to not mourn, but organize. Don’t waste your time with civility. Historically it has never worked...except in reducing annoying uppityness. Some in the media gentry warn Democrats to check their ungracious behavior lest it reflect badly upon us. What’s the difference with Donald Trump’s conduct? In a word, class. A concept beyond us coastal elites, that Donald just gets. Paula (Apynys) Writer tells us receiving incivilities from us is part of the price Republicans need to pay. Susan Collins prefers to lied to in the nicest possible way.
Republicans near their goal of overturning Roe. Reaching it could backfire, unless “their goal” is “overturning Roe”. That would be a “win” for them, which they’d follow by eliminating any other rights they didn’t like, like yours. Trump’s White Power initiative might falter as he makes many whites less powerful.
Donald knows the importance of civility. He has asked Saudi Arabia to please increase their oil production, reduce their profit and help us out a bit, but there’s some topics he won’t even broach with our good neighbor Vladimir Putin.
