Barbra Streisand shares a gruesome cartoon of Nancy Pelosi impaling and killing Trump with a giant heel

The graphic cartoons come as clothing company has put up a billboard in New York City's Times Square that depicting President Donald Trump being hog-tied by a woman clad in its athletic wear.

The 30-foot-high billboard featuring a model binding a Trump look-alike with red, white and blue rope while stomping on his face, was put up earlier this week as part of an advertising campaign by Dhvani, a Portland-based clothing company.

'We have big news to share with you,' the brand tweeted from @DhvaniWear on Monday, and included an image of a woman wearing a sports bra and exercise pants.

----

CEO of Dhvani Avi Brown told The Associated Press the billboard was intended to be a comment on the Trump administration's changes to the Title X family planning program blocking federal funding for health providers who refer patients for abortions.

This needs to be required reading for everyone that is registered to vote. You're not allowed to vote until you read this. There will always be those that will refuse to see what Trump has done to our country. WE just don't let them vote. Smile

So, now our Republican counterparts are calling for unity — for us to accept and acquiesce to right-wing control of our government.

How dare they?

if Trump had even a scintilla of decency, he'd resign.

but he is a fuckwad of the highest order, and will scorch the earth for as long as possible.

Donchya think Bill Taylor's testimony oughtta be enough? Rolling Eyes

Quote:
It was all there — the quid, the pro, the quo, the whole sordid scheme laid out end-to-end and narrated capably by a career foreign service officer who is obviously about 300 times brighter and better than any of the dim bulbs who carried out the extortion scheme. Lawmakers told reporters that there were "audible gasps" of shock during Taylor's opening statement. It's good to know, at least, that on day 1,005 of Donald Trump's corrupt misrule, it is still possible to be made freshly aghast at his contemptible behavior.

If recent history is any guide, White House officials will quietly direct the Army Corps of Engineers to issue an unsigned statement today, explaining that Trump was right about wall construction in Colorado, reality be damned.

DOJ is conducting a criminal probe of the 2016 Russia investigation.

IOW, the criminals are investigating those who exposed them.

The #OutlawGOP is soooooo fucked up now. Utterly lawless.

I am sort of familiar with this town (a few friends and some distant family live here). VERY conservative. Grace College and Seminary is here. Home of Billy Sunday (from his Wiki page: "after being a popular outfielder in baseball's National League during the 1880s, became the most celebrated and influential American evangelist during the first two decades of the 20th century.")

The results of this poll surprise me. Right now, they are 1,420 in favor of an impeachment inquiry and 1,352 against. Maybe there is hope!

Interesting, indeed. I have a friend who lives in that part of IN, having moved here from Britain. His opinion of the entire population there is one of Neanderthal idiots Laughing I'll have to share the article with him, so he knows he's not actually alone in his opinion of Trump.

Trump Ordered to Pay $2 Million to Charities

the new york times wrote:
A state judge ordered President Trump to pay $2 million in damages to a collection of nonprofit groups on Wednesday as part of a settlement of a lawsuit that accused his charity, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, of financial mismanagement.

Once billed as the charitable arm of the president’s financial empire, the Trump Foundation closed its doors in December, six months after the New York attorney general’s office sued it for acting “as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests.” The suit said the foundation engaged in “a shocking pattern of illegality” that included improperly coordinating with Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Looks like this impeachment nonsense is imploding again! I am enjoying every second of its demise. I would say that today has to be one of the single worst days of the effort (for those of you who are staying informed). Schiff accidentally outed Ciaramella on the House website (then took it down), Ciaramella's attorney has been exposed for his tweets in 2017, Bolton told the impeachment committee to go pound sand, the House isn't going to pursue a subpoena (because they've got nothing). They have given up on quid pro quo and are now falling back on obstruction. The hits just keep on coming. On top of that, CBS and ABC outed the Epstein whistleblower and Donald Trump Jr went on The View and OWNED Blackface Behar and Whoopi.

The only way this gets better is when the IG report drops Laughing

The more unhinged and desperate the GOP becomes with this whistleblower nonsense as witness after witness screams Quid Pro Quo the more I get the warm fuzzies inside.

When your only line of defense is trying to out and discredit a person whose motivations have no bearing on the material facts and evidence of the case, it speaks to how desperate you are. He could literally be the leader of the "I Hate Trump and want him Impeached Party", and it wouldn't matter since it's not a he said/she said issue where he is a material witness and his credibility or motives matter. This is nothing more than the initial tipster telling investigators where to look for the actual evidence. And based upon the testimony of Taylor, Sondland, Vindman, and the rest, boy is that evidence piling up.

But yeah, keep focusing on someone so unimportant to the case that they wouldn't even be called upon to testify at trial.

Evidence of what? What is the offense? There isn't even a charge. There isn't anything at all. The transcript of the call was released. The "whistleblower" didn't even hear the phone call.

With all the talk of "evidence" I'm still trying to figure out what there is supposed to be evidence of. The only ones with evidence of anything are William Barr and John Durham.

This whole round of "impeachment" will be dead by the end of the month because there's nothing there.

Well, impeachment requires one of three things:

1) Treason
2) Bribery
3) "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" (read: abuse of power)

From the released testimony we have seen evidence of a potential gross abuse of power by withholding congressionally designated foreign aid in order to gain personal advantages. Also, using the office and his role in that office to also gain said advantages.

Multiple witnesses have also testified to it being a "quid pro quo", which is important because it would also meet the definition of bribery.

https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/bribery

So if he offered a things of value to them (the aid and Offical White House visits) in return for personal favors done that could potentially assist him in the next election, that's bribery.

Quote:

Why would there be yet? They are still in the investigation phase. The charge comes when they draft the Articles of Impeachment, which based upon the released transcripts is a matter of when now, not if. Extremely credible people like Taylor, Sondland, and Vindman have all called it quid pro quo. That is very damning.

Quote:

Agreed. Which is why it is so unconscionable and pointless that the GOP is trying to unmask him. He is not a material witness and is not providing any unique evidence to the case. All he did was point to the actual witnesses who could provide first hand knowledge and testimony. Those are the people that matter and who the case is built around. He straight up said in his initial whistleblower complaint that he had a bunch of hearsay information that was very concerning, and that they should talk to the people who would actually know for sure. So they did.

Quote:

Yeah, that's not going to happen. He will be impeached. The testimony released so far pretty much guarantees it, and there is already popular support for impeachment and removal without even having the public hearings yet. Once the public hearing happen, that number is going to go up.

The only open question is whether or not he is removed. I doubt it, since it appears the GOP has sold their souls to the Cult of Trump, but if the support for removal comes up enough it might change that calculus. The GOP is playing a very, very weak hand on this one as can be seen by the incoherent lines of defense they have come up with so far--like focusing on the name of the whistleblower who is a non-factor in the whole thing.

Here is some good historical background about the phrase "high crimes and misdemeanors" and what it means:

https://www.crf-usa.org/impeachment/high-crimes-and-misdemeanors.html

Quote:
What are “high crimes and misdemeanors”? On first hearing this phrase, many people probably think that it is just an 18th century way of saying “felonies and misdemeanors.” Felonies are major crimes and misdemeanors are lesser crimes. If this interpretation were correct, “high crimes and misdemeanors” would simply mean any crime. But this interpretation is mistaken.

The convention adopted “high crimes and misdemeanors” with little discussion. Most of the framers knew the phrase well. Since 1386, the English parliament had used “high crimes and misdemeanors” as one of the grounds to impeach officials of the crown. Officials accused of “high crimes and misdemeanors” were accused of offenses as varied as misappropriating government funds, appointing unfit subordinates, not prosecuting cases, not spending money allocated by Parliament, promoting themselves ahead of more deserving candidates, threatening a grand jury, disobeying an order from Parliament, arresting a man to keep him from running for Parliament, losing a ship by neglecting to moor it, helping “suppress petitions to the King to call a Parliament,” granting warrants without cause, and bribery. Some of these charges were crimes. Others were not. The one common denominator in all these accusations was that the official had somehow abused the power of his office and was unfit to serve.

After the Constitutional Convention, the Constitution had to be ratified by the states. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote a series of essays, known as the Federalist Papers, urging support of the Constitution. In Federalist No. 65, Hamilton explained impeachment. He defined impeachable offenses as “those offences which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

For the more than 200 years since the Constitution was adopted, Congress has seriously considered impeachment only 18 times. Thirteen of these cases involved federal judges. The “high crimes and misdemeanors” that the House charged against these judges included being habitually drunk, showing favoritism on the bench, using judicial power unlawfully, using the office for financial gain, unlawfully punishing people for contempt of court, submitting false expense accounts, getting special deals from parties appearing before the court, bullying people in open court, filing false income tax returns, making false statements while under oath, and disclosing confidential information.


So, in other words, what the House will be trying to prove is that Trump abused the power of his office in such a way that it violated the public's trust. While that might involve an actual criminal act, such an act is not required--as has been demonstrated in many past impeachment cases.
