    TRUMP: "I knew that our destiny was in our own hands -- that we could choose to reject a future of America, and really look at a future of American decline, unacceptable. And to build a future of American dominance, which is what I wanted. It couldn't be any other way." #wut

    Trump just told his story about how when he signed his Waters of the US order, there were people in his office, "strong people, very strong men and women, and almost all of them were crying."This is his funniest tears lie to me because the event was on video and nobody cried.

    Extremists are using many of the same gadfly tactics Trump deployed against Democrats, and allies fear 2020 fallout



    The far-right activists who jeered Donald Trump Jr off a stage in California on Sunday are part of a bloc of white nationalists who embraced Trump’s father on his ascent to the White House but are now causing multiple headaches for the president’s friends, allies and family as his campaign for re-election gathers pace.
    Donald Trump Jr walks out of Triggered book launch after heckling – from supportersThe extremists have launched an insurgent campaign to thrust their views in the faces of key Trump supporters – some of whom have reputations of their own for political views flirting with the fringes of the permissible. Seeking to command attention and force a response, they are using many of the same gadfly tactics Trump has deployed against Democrats and the left.



    Their fury at being denied an opportunity to ask questions at an event promoting Trump Jr’s book Triggered, and their willingness to shout the house down, are just the latest sign of acrimony ripping at the right flank of the fabled Trump base.
    In the last two weeks alone, followers of Nick Fuentes – a 21-year-old YouTube provocateur who offers supporters a diet of derogatory remarks about black, gay and Jewish people and has questioned the Holocaust – have repeatedly heckled the head of a key pro-Trump student organization, Turning Point USA; accused the Trump administration, however improbably, of being soft on immigration; and picked a fight with the erstwhile White House adviser and Trump loyalist Sebastian Gorka.

    When Gorka – who has himself been accused of antisemitism, among other sins – said he found Fuentes’s views on the Holocaust “chilling”, Fuentes responded in a tweet that Gorka was “a fat mutton-headed buffoon and a prostitute for Israel”.


    Gorka is one of a number of Trump surrogates and supporters who have found such provocations impossible to ignore. They have been particularly concerned to put as much daylight as possible between their own positions and those of the extremists who variously call themselves alt-right, paleoconservative or foot soldiers in a “groyper war”, a reference to a rightwing meme.
    “Donald Trump has nothing to do with these so-called, self-proclaimed America First asshats,” the former editor of Breitbart News, Ben Shapiro, told a conservative forum at Stanford University last week in a speech originally intended to target Trump’s more familiar adversaries on the political left.
    Shapiro quoted Fuentes without naming him and described his supporters as a “bunch of masturbating losers living in your mother’s basement” who only pretended to support Trump and were out for as much attention as they could muster.

    “Trump is many things,” Shapiro insisted. “He is not a white supremacist, and he is not an antisemite.”

    Shapiro’s problem in making this argument is that the racist far right was in fact openly enthusiastic about Trump when he ran for president in 2016, and Trump initially punted when invited to disavow their support.
    Later, when the notorious “Unite the Right” protest in Charlottesville in 2017 resulted in the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer, Trump’s reaction was to say there were “very fine people on both sides” – a widely condemned expression of moral equivalence Trump himself has recently sought to play down.
    Shapiro faced his own band of Fuentes-admiring hecklers at Stanford, but kept talking as they were escorted out by security guards.
    “I’m literally condemning Nazis,” he said, incredulously, “and you’re telling me to leave? Do you hear yourselves?”


    Trump Jr and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, had notably less success in maintaining control in the university lecture hall where they appeared on Sunday. Guilfoyle told the protesters they were being “rude and disruptive and discourteous” and added: “I bet you engage in … online dating because you’re impressing no one here to get a date in person.”
    She and Trump Jr abandoned the event moments later.
    A triumphant Fuentes denied that he was only a pretend Trump supporter and said the person his followers were targeting was not Trump Jr but the Turning Point USA founder, Charlie Kirk, who appeared on stage as a featured speaker but did not say a word.
    “Our problem is not with Donald Trump Jr who is a patriot – we are supporters of his father!” Fuentes wrote on Twitter. “Our problem is with Charlie Kirk’s TPUSA organization that SHUTS DOWN and SMEARS socially conservative Christians and supporters of President Trump’s agenda.”

    Trump’s allies worry that this public feuding can only dampen his base’s enthusiasm and embolden his Democratic party challengers for the presidency. It seems likely, too, that the more extreme elements who backed Trump last time might think twice before doing so again. Two Fuentes supporters at Sunday’s book event said they were likely to sit out 2020 and not bother to vote at all.

    It doesn't get anymore delightful watching Jr get "triggered" promoting his book titled Triggered. The jokes literally write themselves with these dopey dotards.

    Historic task’: Democrats aim to prove Trump’s actions warrant impeachment


    The House set to begin public hearings against the president – who has struggled furiously to prevent the investigation


    With less than a year until Donald Trump faces re-election, the House of Representatives is scheduled to begin public hearings on Wednesday into alleged misconduct by the president that Democrats and some Republicans say could warrant his impeachment.
    It is a day that Trump has struggled furiously to prevent, blocking witnesses, attacking investigators and throwing up a social media smokescreen.
    But when the Democratic chair Adam Schiff gavels the House intelligence committee to order, cameras from every major network will carry the proceedings to millions of Americans, some of whom will be encountering the allegations against Trump for the first time.
    Trump has denied any wrongdoing. Now, the country will decide.
    Lights, camera, impeachment: TV phase of inquiry carries pluses and pitfalls“It is a very momentous occasion,” said Richard Briffault, an impeachment expert and professor at Columbia law school. “This will only be the fourth time in more than 225 years that Congress has considered the impeachment of a president.”
    Democrats allege Trump abused the power of his office by withholding military aid and dangling a White House visit in an effort to force Ukraine to announce sham investigations of Trump’s political rival, Joe Biden. Republicans say Trump had good reasons for stalling aid and acted within his power to do so.

    “I am going to reserve judgment until we have a chance to hear from all the witnesses, and indeed, we continue to learn new facts,” Schiff told CNN Tuesday evening.

    Democrats have a two-part case to make, Briffault said: “One part is about the facts. It doesn’t sound like the president is really contesting a lot of the facts anymore, although we’ll find out as that goes forward.


    “But the harder part, I think, is saying that this is serious enough that it justifies removal from office.”
    Corey Brettschneider, the author of The Oath and the Office: A Guide to the Constitution for Future Presidents and a professor of constitutional law at Brown University, said that while the president has broad powers to exercise foreign policy, those powers do not include exercising foreign policy for his own personal benefit.
    “When it comes to impeachment, the framers dedicated a significant amount of time to thinking about this,” Brettschneider said. “They made a deliberate decision to say ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’, emphasizing that if the president abused power – not just committed a crime – then he or she would be removed.”
    In a nod to the gravity of the moment, Schiff instructed colleagues in a letter on Tuesday to be “mindful of the solemn and historic task before us”.
    A dueling strategy memo circulated by Republicans urged the party to mount an aggressive defense of the Trump.

    “The body of evidence to date does not support the Democrat [sic] allegation that President Trump pressured Ukraine to conduct investigations into the President’s political rivals for his political benefit in the 2020 election,” the memo said. “The body of evidence to date does not support the Democrat allegations that President Trump covered up misconduct or obstructed justice.”



    Two witnesses were scheduled to testify on Wednesday. In a closed-door deposition earlier this month, Bill Taylor, the acting ambassador in Kyiv, told investigators that Trump “was adamant” about the need for a public announcement of investigations by the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy. The state department deputy assistant secretary, George Kent, said Trump “wanted nothing less than President Zelenskiy to go to a microphone and say ‘investigations’, ‘Biden’, and ‘Clinton’”.
    “Clinton” was a reference to a conspiracy theory about 2016 election tampering that Trump credited, witnesses have said.
    The Democrats planned to call nine additional witnesses in the space of eight days, including almost everyone they have deposed behind closed doors, with the last public testimony currently scheduled for next Thursday.
    Public impeachment hearings are expected to last about two weeks, until the Thanksgiving holiday break. Upon conclusion of its work, the intelligence committee is to submit a report to the judiciary committee, which then could draw up and vote on articles of impeachment.

    The full House could proceed to a vote on the impeachment of Trump by the end of the year.

    GOP aide tells me one plan discussed is for Gym Jordan and others to repeatedly use the whistleblower's name as one of several strategies to blow up the hearings and make the media report on his identity. Be prepared for stunts.

    Devin Nunez, the clown with Mad Cow Disease (cuz he sued a twitter account for $25 million that parodied his dairy cow) just gave the opening statement on behalf of the Republicans at the Impeachment hearing. He makes sure to claim once again the Dems sought out nudes of Fatboy Trump. Sigh. I’m out.

    I must say, the testimony has been fascinating and Trump is lucky he has this group of clown republicans backing him up because he would be out of office if there were more republicans with integrity.
