No surprise here. Dean goes all in for the Clintons!

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/355155-howard-dean-trump-should-put-clinton-foundation-in-charge-of-puerto

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean on Thursday slammed President Trump for having “no clue” how to lead the federal recovery effort in Puerto Rico, suggesting that the Clinton Foundation — run by the family of Trump’s former opponent Hillary Clinton — handle it instead.

As if the screwing of Haiti wasn’t enough!

A Surprise in the Equifax Breach: Victims Likely to Get Paid.

Before you get to excited, if all 145 million divide up a billion dollar potential settlement all effected would get less than 7 bucks per person. The CEO gets 70 million to walk away, we get less than 7 bucks. Sounds about right according to our corporate overlords. More at the link.

Both parties agreed to up the Pentagon’s budget!

https://www.thenation.com/article/heres-where-your-tax-dollars-for-defense-are-really-going/

The numbers are staggering. In fiscal year 2016, the Pentagon issued $304 billion in contract awards to corporations—nearly half of the department’s $600 billion-plus budget for that year. And keep in mind that not all contractors are created equal. According to the Federal Procurement Data System’s top 100 contractors report for 2016, the biggest beneficiaries by a country mile were Lockheed Martin ($36.2 billion), Boeing ($24.3 billion), Raytheon ($12.8 billion), General Dynamics ($12.7 billion), and Northrop Grumman ($10.7 billion). Together, these five firms gobbled up nearly $100 billion of your tax dollars, about one-third of all the Pentagon’s contract awards in 2016.

Just a small portion of the article.

And yet there is no money for MFA. Go figure!

Only five Senate Dems voted against the increase: Sanders and Leahy from VT, Merkley and Widen from OR, and Gillibrand from NY. Leaving out Bernie, right now my two favorite Dem Pres candidate possibles from the Senate are Merkley and Gillibrand.

Some good news concerning the California Senate race.

http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/355197-california-state-senate-president-to-primary-feinstein-report

California Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León is expected to challenge longtime Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in next year’s Senate primary, according to CNN.

De León has been reportedly reaching out to labor leaders and elected officials and is expected to announce his campaign soon. De León will jump into the race after California’s legislative session, according to the CNN report.

The news comes several days after Feinstein, 84, announced that she would run for reelection. Feinstein has served in the upper chamber since 1992 and is the oldest U.S. senator.

Like in 2016 between Harris and Sanchez, the top two vote getters in California’s one primary fits all could be Dems who will face off in the general.

A reaction to Trump’s tweet.

humphrey

I guess that it all depends on the color of your skin!

humphrey

This certainly could be true.

I have no idea why this is happening! ( ultimate snark)

Ive read enough comment and can say with an high degree of certainty that Trumpcorps hard core fanatical base are claiming “Fake News” about this. I believe his craziest base would turn violent when he losses in 2020

This is not a good trend!

Rush Limbaugh Suggests Trump Is Acting like a Dictator and Is Making Him ‘Nervous’

When Batshit crazy Limbaugh is getting worried over Trumpcorp maybe we should all worry? To me its scary when Limbaugh says something coherent and it makes sense.

Donald Trump’s comments about the NFL are starting to make Rush Limbaugh feel nervous, the conservative radio host said on his show Wednesday.
Limbaugh, who has previously expressed his concern about Trump’s tweets, made his feelings on the president’s interference in the ongoing NFL protests clear on his show.

“There’s a part of this story that’s starting to make me nervous, and it’s this: I am very uncomfortable with the president of the United States being able to dictate the behavior and power of anybody. That’s not where this should be coming from,” he said

I don’t like the looks of this!

http://thehill.com/homenews/house/355233-freedom-caucus-chairman-courts-dems-on-tax-reform

Rep. Mark Meadows, the conservative hard-liner and chairman of the far-right House Freedom Caucus, is playing an unlikely role in the push for tax reform: liaison to Democrats.

In a bid to help shape and build support for the tax package, the North Carolina Republican has been reaching across the aisle to a handful of moderate Democrats, he told The Hill in an interview. The outreach includes Rep. John Delaney (Md.), who has said he’s running for president in 2020, and Rep. John Garamendi, the former California insurance commissioner and lieutenant governor.

The fact that there are so many corporate Dems has me concerned.

Cuomo proves that he still is a jerk!

http://www.politico.com/states/new-york/city-hall/story/2017/10/12/cuomo-defends-keeping-weinstein-money-says-criticism-misses-the-point-115014

ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo reiterated Thursday that he will keep some of the campaign money he’s raised from embattled Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, declaring the inquisition on that topic “misses the point.”

Cuomo, a Democrat who is positioning himself for a possible presidential bid in 2020, has raised $118,204 from Weinstein and his company since his 2006 campaign for attorney general. The governor’s campaign said late Oct. 6 it will donate $50,000 of those contributions — the amount contributed in 2016 and 2017 to his planned reelection bid next year — to an unspecified woman’s group.

As of July, Cuomo had $25.7 million in his campaign war chest.

I still think that Cuomo, the DNC and Hillary are tone deaf.

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/355254-clinton-to-donate-past-weinstein-contributions-to-all-four-campaigns

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is expected to donate all former campaign contributions from film mogul Harvey Weinstein to charity, a Clinton aide told NBC News Thursday.

According to the aide, the Weinstein donations being offered to charity were made for Clinton’s four runs for office. Clinton ran twice in the Democratic presidential primary, once against former President Barack Obama, and again in 2016 against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I). She also ran for Senate in 2000, and as the Democratic candidate for president in 2016.

The statement through an aide certainly leaves a lot of wiggle room. It does not specify the charity involved ( CFF maybe?) or whether the actual donation is above and beyond her usual 10% charitable donation.

Not that I don’t trust her! Cuz I don’t.

Sad but true!

Get this to Trump’s desk. Pronto!

Although it should have been a gift rather than a loan.
