I’m struck by the idea that Haley thought it was a good idea not to save the country, one might think this would be something NOT to brag about.

No. 1? Buy Fox News,

John Cleese on Donald Trump: “He is an extraordinary caricature of an asshole; a person who has no interest in anyone else except himself.”

The Federalist Society is completely discredited. It is funded by anonymous huge right wing donors and trains second rate lawyers with right wing ideologies to be appointed to federal court. The are no better than Heritage or the Daily Caller.

Nine Russian business people who funded the UK’s Conservative Party are named in a secret intelligence report on the threats posed to UK democracy which was suppressed last week by Prime Minister Boris Johnson who has personal ties to some of the Russians.

Nikki Haley claims that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson & former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly sought to recruit her to work around and subvert Trump to save the country. She chose Trump instead of the country. Not interested in her book

“Tillerson also told her that people would die if Trump was unchecked, Haley wrote.”

Nikki Haley claims top aides tried to recruit her to ‘save the country’ by undermining Trump

If the Federalist Society is discredited--and it should be--so, alas, is the Supreme Court. Five out of nine members of the Court(Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Thomas, Roberts, and Alito) are current or former members.

The Trump administration is actively trying to persuade North Korea to return to the bargaining table before Kim Jong Un’s deadline. Officials have repeatedly warned the U.S. not to ignore the deadline without specifying what will happen if they do.

Bolton watches POTUS commit Extortion in front of him and never goes forward to tell anyone, however, Simon & Schuster thinks his "story and propaganda" is worth $2M.

Billboard coming. We need another $1,800 in and we have it. #Visalia please support or shop

A review of federal data and reports obtained under state open records laws identified 1,688 high-hazard dams rated in poor or unsatisfactory condition as of last year in 44 states and Puerto Rico.

"A Plea From 33 Writers: Words Matter. Stop Using 'Quid Pro Quo.'" "Please use words that refer only to criminal behavior here. Use 'bribery' or 'extortion' to describe Mr. Trump's demand to ... Ukraine, making it very clear that this is a crime."

The proposed rule is nothing more than an attempt to price individuals out of the process of seeking citizenship or asylum and to curb our legal immigration system. The Trump Admin’s mission is to make America a less welcoming nation. This is not who we are. We must do better.

The Top 1% owns more than half of all the wealth in U.S. companies. They own $35 trillion in assets

Rudy Giuliani associates' Parnas and Fruman money trail leads to Sunny Isles, Florida.

Has anyone noticed a proportional effort to both normalize sex with children and a shaming/suffocation of female sexuality and rights? I have

This is an abuse of the classification system for a cover up. There was nothing classified about that phone call. It had nothing to do with our national security. A lawyer cannot do this. ABA Rule 1.2(d) (lawyer may not assist in a crime or fraud)

This name-calling toddler is defended by an entire American political party as an institution, from top to bottom, who want you to give him four more years of sole control of nearly 2000 nuclear weapons.

Weird @10DowningStreet try to cover up the Russia-Brexit report. 1. It will lead to revelations coming out drip, drip, drip 2. Clearly, before January deadline for #Brexit, there will be a court case, and SCOTUK will bar leaving on an unfair vote

UPDATE: Judge Leon just set a 5PM Monday phone hearing on Mulvaney's motion to join the Kupperman suit. Judge seems in a hurry. Courthouse is closed Monday for Veterans Day. Earlier:

Love this. Thank you, Berlin.

House Republicans' witness list for the impeachment inquiry, which includes Hunter Biden and the whistleblower but is certain to be rejected by Democrats, hints that the president's favorite conspiracies will be a centerpiece of their strategy

Great exclusive in the Sunday Times on Russia and #Brexit appears to confirm that Dom Cummings is restricted on security matters. It’s surely time to go to court. We must know if the referendum was free and fair.

The UN-backed government in Libya has urged the U.S. to help end a months-long conflict as Russia's role grows

Expensive, glitchy voting machines are exposing election hacking risks in 2020

That guy took a knife near a @SecretService detail to stab a likeness of @POTUS. The statute makes that illegal. A prior restraint punishes conduct. His motive is irrelevant or the statute is unconstitutional. He needs a visit with a public statement confirming it.

Trump should go celebrate with the Russians. It’s long overdue.

SORE LOSER: Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin Accuses Secretary of State of Fraud After She Declares He Lost the Election

Wow. Tonight in Barcelona. The city is protesting the arrest of independence leaders.

Hey, Bama fans, not only did he hijack your game, he couldn't even be bothered to watch it and was instead RT'ing Tucker during THAT 4th quarter.

According to their financial disclosures, Ivanka and Jared took in as much as $135 million in revenue during their 2nd year as aides to Trump. That’s $11.25 million per month. $11.25 MILLION A MONTH. What say you,

A late February meeting in Kyiv between Lev Parnas, Igor Fruman and then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko took place at the offices of Ukrainian general prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko

Bombshell, if true Bolten & Mulvaney fought over release of money to Ukraine & Bolton went behind Mulvaney's back and released it & then resigned! Whoa!

Bill Barr's meeting with Fox News chairman should be investigated

President Trump posted 82 tweets or retweets today and flew 1,600 miles roundtrip to Alabama for a football game in desperate search of applause.

Soviet WWII veterans who did so much to defeat Nazi Germany deserve recognition. But inappropriate for @realDonaldTrump to attend military parade in Red Square (VE Day, not May Day) when #Russia's military seized Crimea and continues to wage war against #Ukraine in Donbas.

The same EPA chief of staff who is refusing to cooperate with an inquiry into whether he pressured a scientist to alter her congressional testimony is the one who is under investigation for destroying documents.

#VeteransDay will feel different to the veterans who were deported after serving our country. They’ll be miles away from their home and loved ones, reflecting on their service in a country they barely know. We must fix this injustice.

Paula White the phony preacher takes her con game to the White House. Tampa Bay knows Trump’s religious adviser too well

Steve Bannon testified in court that Trump campaign officials saw Roger Stone as their "access point" to WikiLeaks and Julian Assange

Letter from whistleblower’s attorney points states outing whistleblower is attempt to impede cooperation with Congress 18 USC 1505, witness tampering Section 1512, and retaliation Section 1513. All Federal crimes. His law degree says it.

A reminder of how unacceptable it was when Barr admitted he didn’t review the underlying evidence in Mueller's investigation. To my Republican colleagues in the Senate: don't avoid the facts because you're afraid of what you'll learn. Read the impeachment hearing transcripts.

This is a US Govt official praising the GODDAMN BERLIN WALL, the symbol of 70 years of oppression and division under the Soviet boot. In any other administration, this person would be fired immediately and never work in this town again. What an embarrassment these clowns are.

Mike Pompeo has zero credibility in the world. He has now been exposed as an accessory to extortion. He should resign

We already know that Trump was "seeking guidance" from Putin with respect to Ukraine and Zelenskyy. Therefore, it's highly relevant to the ongoing impeachment inquiry. Release Putin' transcripts

Trump is going to try to exonerate himself by releasing a completely unrelated (probably also doctored) transcript with Zelensky? The desperation is palpable.

This is the woman who created all the controversy that made @realDonaldTrump go after @RepCummings and Baltimore. Cummings never got over the attack on him and the city. It is all because of her.

Impeachment trap 1 Witness no shows at House hearings will be an obstruction article of impeachment 2 Witness no shows at the Senate trial automatically prove the obstruction article 3 Trump's attys defending this are also architects of the obstruction-essentially co-conspirators

New - Schiff makes clear to Nunes that whistleblower will NOT be testifying, saying the inquiry has gathered evidence “that not only confirms but far exceeds” the complaint. “The whistleblower’s testimony is therefore redundant and unnecessary,” per letter obtained by CNN.

Bannon also claimed Roger Stone was not the axis to Wikileaks, as the campaign did not really have one. Then he was shown his own Grand Jury testimony asserting Stone was the axis. Then he said yes, Stone was the axis. Just like @USAmbEU, get caught in perjury, change story.

I refuse to let @ICEgov get away with not turning over footage of Roxsana HernΓ‘ndez, a 33-year-old transgender Latinx woman who died in U.S. custody. I'm demanding a special counsel to investigate whether ICE destroyed the tapes—we need the truth.

Ms. ROMNEY is LYING. The Democratic-led House has passed ALL 12 APPROPRIATIONS BILLS, INCLUDING DEFENSE. The GOP-led Senate has passed ZERO. The House has ALSO passed SEVERAL PRESCRIPTION RX BILLS (HR 1503, HR 2115, HR 987, HR 986, etc) that the Senate has done NOTHING with.

‘Baby Trump’ balloon knifed during Trump visit to University of Alabama football game

FULL STORY: 9 Russian businessmen who gave money to the Conservative party are named in a secret intelligence report on threats to UK democracy that was suppressed last week by Downing Street. Exclusive

Bolton, who won’t talk to Congress unless a court says he must comply with a subpoena, is writing a book

Since Ukraine gained independence, the US & its Western allies have seen it as a vital bulwark against renewed Russian expansion. But Trump's actions and comments have been consistent with his persistent pattern of helping Putin, rather than opposing him.

Remember in late 2016, when Rudy Giuliani suddenly withdrew from consideration for Secretary of State & then went silent for a long time? We never did determine why exactly he bowed out so abruptly...

Tragic story about how farmers are dying by suicide - mostly gun suicide - as they endure the worst period for U.S. agriculture in decades. Bankruptcies and loan delinquencies are rising, weather events are ruining crops, and profits are vanishing.

With Trump confirming that Erdogan's visit is still on, I just want to remind folks that last time he was here, his goons beat peaceful protesters with impunity in the streets of our national capital. Nine people were hospitalized. Trump said nothing;
