And that cartoon above…was drawn before tRump’s statement yesterday: Trump signals Saudis won’t face severe punishment for Khashoggi killing | TheHill

Trump refused to blame Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for Khashoggi’s killing even though the CIA has reportedly concluded that the crown prince ordered his assassination.

 

 

Too much going on in the news…I’m just going to hit you with the cartoons. For now…

    Love the Prince paperback covers JJ.

    Hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Looks like Northern California is getting some rain!

    Nancy Pelosi doesn’t fool around.

    Happy doggo under that Thanksgiving table!

    The US president* thinks it’s OK to kill asylum seekers.

    The Trump administration allowed troops to engage in some law enforcement activities and potentially to use deadly force, according to a report by Military Times on Wednesday.

    The order, which loosens the engagement restrictions on military personnel at the southwest border, was not signed by President Trump, but by White House chief of staff John Kelly.

    It was labeled a “cabinet order,” reported the Military Times.

    Under Kelly’s order, military personnel at the border are allowed to “perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary,” according to the report.

    The “protective activities” include “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention, and cursory search.”

      Won’t be long now until they start rounding up the Presidents “enemies”. This is fixing to get really bad, really quickly. Hard to believe I was sitting in Political Science in 1987 and being taught by Dr. Leach about the rule of law, the Constitution, and how the separation of powers protected us all against those who would oppress us. I guess that is all out the window now. The people of this country got sold out for a few pieces of silver by the Republican party and they’ve successfully duped a large portion of the population into believing anything they’ve been told. It is just astounding the damage that has been done by right wing talk radio, Fox “News” and our own Supreme Court.

    • bostonboomer says:

      That is unbelievable! Trump is a wannabe dictator.

    I miss real “presidentin”

    • Gregory P says:

      He is a nice, wonderful well intentioned man but when they had the majority in the House and the supermajority in the Senate they should have reinstituted laws to curtail propaganda, lying on tv and over the broadcast airways, gerrymandering, voter suppression, etc. They allowed it to be very easy to get to where we are now. A lot of this stuff goes all the way back to Reagan and could have been easily corrected at any time. Now, fixing this mess is going to be next to impossible.

    Mueller might soon bring charges that even Trump die-hards can’t trivialize
    By HARRY LITMAN
    NOV 20, 2018 | 3:05 AM

    https://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-litman-mueller-probe-blockbuster-developments-20181120-story.html

    Look first for an indictment against radio commentator Jerome Corsi, who told the world last week that after several months of his cooperating with the probe, Mueller has informed him that he will be charged with “some form of lying” to the Mueller team.

    A fabulist, blowhard and general odd duck, Corsi might seem like small quarry for Mueller. But as with Paul Manafort’s lobbying partner Rick Gates, whose cooperation anchored the tax and fraud case against the former Trump campaign manager, Corsi is directly connected to another Trump insider, Roger Stone. Stone was in regular contact with candidate Trump during the campaign, and perhaps with WikiLeaks and its Russian sources.

    Stone and Corsi appear to have had advance knowledge of the WikiLeaks October 2016 release of emails from the account of Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta. Both men have indicated that Corsi was the source of Stone’s foolish Twitter boast and prophecy: It would “soon [be] Podesta’s time in the barrel.” Corsi suggests, implausibly, that he just sussed out WikiLeaks’ moves from publicly available sources, and Stone insists his email wasn’t referring to hacking or WikiLeaks anyway. He says he had no advance knowledge of the Podesta reveal.

    And yet, given that the first cache from Podesta’s account was released a matter of minutes after the “Access Hollywood” tape sent the Trump campaign reeling, it seems possible the release was a coordinated effort, and Stone could have been the conduit.

    Another augury of blockbuster developments: Mueller last week filed a statement in the District of Columbia court that is overseeing the case of Manafort, who awaits sentencing on his tax and fraud conviction. Mueller requested a 10-day delay in submitting a status report on the ground that the later report would “be of greater assistance” to the court’s work determining what sentence Manafort deserves. Mueller’s request strongly suggests that we’ll soon see important additional information bearing on the value of Manafort’s cooperation, up to and including a potential role as a key witness in a soon-to-be-unveiled criminal case.

    The whole point of the enormous pressure Mueller brought to bear against Manafort was to shake loose information about persons above him in the food chain. Those are very few, arguably only Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner or Trump himself (who we know believes that Manafort could incriminate him).

    Happy Thanksgiving JJ!!! Sky Dancers!!!! I love the Purple Pulp Fiction Covers!!!

    • Enheduanna says:

      But why do we have to hold our breath and hope the Robert’s court will do the right thing. And as far as gerrymandering – Roberts in particular will not do the right thing.

      • NW Luna says:

        Exactly. And now they have two Trump appointees in the last year or so — the court’s stacked against independence.

  14. Enheduanna says:

    JJ – my favorite name for FB I’ve seen on the Internets is Crackbook….hahahahaha
