What does this bring the total too, ten major papers now?

Repubsareproincest

When will center-right and right wing newspapers stiffen their spines and call for the same thing?

Frankly, I don’t see how this is still a partisan issue.

Honestly fuck business insider. It’s glorified ad space.

Maybe they should stop breathlessly reporting his administration’s lies.

Daemon_Monkey

That’s great and all, but does it make any difference? The majority of America hates this idiot and everyone around him, but it seems like the most likely end to this is when we beat his ass in November (and the ensuing trials against him afterward).

Bernie Sanders tweets teachers should be paid ‘at least $60,000’ if Gerrit Cole can make $324 million

My aunt got pissed off at me when I said teachers should be paid more. She said “why should teachers get paid more than nurses” (she’s a nurse).

OK, that’s a completely different conversation but let’s talk about that now. Teachers being paid more doesn’t mean nurses will be paid less. And I agree that nurses should also be paid more. Why are you getting angry as someone wanting a decent living wage when you also want the same thing?

My wife already makes 60k as a teacher

Considering where i live, that doesn’t go as far as anyone outside of New England, NY, NJ or CA might think

But the teachers down south and in the midwest making 20-30k a year is a fucking outrage imo.

Edit- its just a generalization guys…NJ, MA, CT, NY, CA….. *generally* expensive. There are places in NJ way south and way northwest where its cheap to live and 60k a year is a perfectly fine salary. Im sure its the same everywhere

padizzledonk

Local man thinks teachers should be paid…. A decent living? That’s totally crazy!

He’s not wrong, but what does a baseball player’s salary have to do with it?

Investment in teachers is vital. This along with his other plans for education plan really show a coherent strategy to improve all areas of education. Pre-k, k-12, college and vocational training would all be invested in properly under a Sanders administration.

Get involved and make it happen, it only can happen if you are part of a movement of millions.

Impeach.

Impeach Trump and remove. McConnell must recuse and should be investigated for his complicity in shielding the corruption.

yfff

> IN THE END, the story told by the two articles of impeachment approved on Friday morning by the House Judiciary Committee is short, simple and damning: President Donald Trump abused the power of his office by strong-arming Ukraine, a vulnerable ally, holding up hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid until it agreed to help him influence the 2020 election by digging up dirt on a political rival.

Pet peeve: He didn’t ask them to “dig up” dirt. He asked them to manufacture dirt.

borktron

>asserting a form of monarchical immunity that Congress cannot let stand

This is the primary concern. Beyond his abuse of office is the fact that he believes himself to be above the law. This cannot be allowed to stand or it will only get worse.

>Republicans and Democrats alike ought to ask themselves the same question: Would they put up with a Democratic president using the power of the White House this way?

Democrats: We would never put up with *any* president abusing their power like that.

Republicans: We would never put up with any *Democratic* president abusing their power like that.

>“It would not surprise me if Nunes’ lawyer was handling these cases for free or on a contingency basis,” Berlik said. “He’s getting a lot of free publicity – people are learning his name.”

The lawyer probably doesn’t have to disclose *his* benefactors past any contingency arrangement with Nunes.

“Congressman’s salary”

I mean, his work in Ukraine is technically an offshoot of his work in congress….

Reddit_guard

At this point, if any democratic activists want to get into the newspapers, all they have to do is go to Iowa, and start asking questions about the Nune’s farm there; and then write up the story

Boom. Instant lawsuit by Nunes. Its almost a factory production at this point!

‘I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here’: Graham predicts Trump impeachment will ‘die quickly’ in Senate

Read the Story

Republicans are admitting they will violate their oath to be fair and impartial?

Lock them up!

dismayedcitizen

The greatest danger threatening our country is this type of statement. He’s openly admitting to ignoring the systems of checks and balances due to partisanship, and he’s going to get fucking cheered on for it by many. That system is needed to prevent any singular figure or entity from being too powerful, especially right now with a president who embraces dictatorship and daily rails against those who try to reign in his power

Tao1764

The oath Lindsey Graham took when he became a senator:

*I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.*

“Oath, schmoth.”

Ladies and gentlemen, the party of law and order.

I’m thankful that the Republicans are advertising the fake nature of their trial. It makes an acquittal impossible in the public consciousness. Trump has no opportunity to clear himself.

Look at all of the evidence that exonerates the president, provided by his own staff.

What? None?

So fuckin’ obvious.

I admire their willingness to risk their jobs for the sake of doing the right thing.

We probably won’t see more than 2 Repub. reps. who will vote to impeach. (I’d be overjoyed to be incorrect with that guess.)

EverWatcher

Rep. Collins keeps telling everyone the whole country sees through the impeachment and Dems are losing support though.

No way he’s wrong. /s

aimedsil

It’s sad that you risk losing your job for persecuting a criminal running the country. It’s bad enough when we don’t prosecute people who aren’t running the country. We need to get tough on crime. Republicans are weak on crime.

disagreedTech

Perhaps people are turned off by seeing Republicans scream like lunatics at hearings and present absolutely no evidence that would exonerate Donald Trump.

Greta should Photoshop herself as the president and then put the caption that she is the greatest president to ever live. That would piss trump off to no end.

Trump’s entire apparatus has turned into a trolling operation, so I and everyone else gets distracted from Moscow Mitch openly touting COLLUSION with the Whitehouse on impeachment. When you step back from the thousands of tweets, dozens of ridiculous images, and the propaganda news and look at the actual “government” of Trump, what you see is the most corrupt state the United States of America has ever known. It’s time to hit the streets, kids. I’ll see you out there.

Trump-Appointed Judge Not Convinced That Concealed Notes of Putin Meeting Belong to the President

Read the Story

Holy shit. He appointed someone who might actually care about the truth?

GUNROAR62

Well, well, well!

> Following the conclusion of the meeting – which ran more than twice as long as originally scheduled – Trump infamously confronted the interpreter and personally confiscated the notes they had taken during the meeting. Attorneys for the Trump administration argued that “when the president takes into his possession a document, it becomes a presidential record.”
>
> But Judge McFadden was not convinced, telling the government’s attorneys that he had “never seen a principal take notes from an interpreter,” and concluded that such documents do not become presidential records “simply because the president took them.”
>
> As the Washington Post reported in January, the “extraordinary lengths” Trump has gone to in his efforts to conceal details of his meetings with Putin have resulted in U.S. officials having “no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years”:

shillyshally

You know your country’s in trouble when you, as a layperson, read a headline about a legal decision and your immediate response was, “No shit, Sherlock. Notes about state visits *don’t* belong to the president alone? Imagine that!”

And the Trump-appointed judges seem to not be 100% on board with autocracy. I bet the far right’s next long term goal is to seed law *schools* with teaching staff that are simpatico. Because apparently sucking in the students at undergrad and grooming them for a few decades isn’t delivering the results to the extent they’d like. Time to remove a variable: those pesky academics and their teaching of facts.

SenorBurns

> A federal judge on Wednesday rejected the Trump administration’s contention that notes taken by the president’s interpreter during a closed-door meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin were not subject to the Federal Records Act.

This actually made me smile!

So rule he has to turn them over. It will take 18 months, then they will say they dont have them, then they will subpoena the interpreter, but she will be forbidden to testify, then that will go the courts for another 18 months. Then finally she will testify and Republicans will say its all second-hand hearsay and Dems will say then where the fuck are the damn notes that the President destroyed and the Republicans will say Buttery Burisma Males fake sham hoax.

Its the Pancake Breakfast. We do it every month.

Greta is the Time Person of the Year. That’s why the President of the United States had to mock her. His fragile little self couldn’t deal with that in any rational way.

> When children learn positive online behaviors early-on, social media can be used in productive ways and can effect positive change. Mrs. Trump believes that children should be both seen and heard, and it is our responsibility as adults to educate and reinforce to them that when they are using their voices—whether verbally or online—they must choose their words wisely and speak with respect and compassion.

From her Be Best website. Just more horseshit from the Trump family. Fuck her, fuck him and fuck all their followers.

I think the option we’re all forgetting here is that she’s very very stupid. Being First Lady doesn’t magically make you smart. Recent first lady’s have been attorneys. Melania has been a soft core porn model. I mean why is no one saying that the issue is she is just really stupid?
