I seriously don't understand why anyone would ever ever trust Trump and what he says. I'm dying to see some ads showing his promises against reality. I bet you could run a great series of anti-Trump ads on this theme.

Just watched the video of Trumps kid pointing out stuff the women on "The View" have done, when they were slagging him off for having Trump for a dad through no fault of his own.

Was quite humorous

This strikes me as a mere slap on the wrist. If he is as rich as he claims then he can find $2M in the sofa cushions. Is $2M any measure at all of the damage he's done both here and abroad? Not even close.

Err, thats JUST the Trump Foundation court action... a very small part of the totality of Dump's legal jeopardy

Concerning as that may be, there's also the larger question of... what, exactly, those legal reforms in property rights actually are and what the larger story is here.

Looks like AP News has a bit more about that.

Ivanka Trump meets with female landowners on Morocco trip

Quote:
Ivanka Trump is a senior White House adviser who works on women’s issues and has sought through an initiative to encourage developing countries to help women build wealth and financial independence by owning land or other property.

Morocco is one such nation. Working in partnership with the Millennium Challenge Corp., a U.S. aid agency, Morocco has updated its land titling laws and earned the three-day visit from the U.S. president’s daughter.

<snip>

She is visiting Morocco to promote the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity initiative, a U.S. government program she spearheads that has a goal of helping 50 million women in developing countries advance economically by 2025.
It does look like the overall cause is good. Ivanka's official role in it, on the other hand, is in a legal grey area, at best, though. I'm willing to count that particular initiative as one of the positives of the Trump Administration, either way.

Given the miniscule size of the Trump Foundation assets at its peak, $2 million is a lot.
Plus he can't serve on any charity board.

Fake News is reporting that I am talking to Mark Burnett about doing a big show, perhaps The Apprentice, after the presidency, which I would assume they mean in 5 years. This is not true, never had such a conversation, don’t even have time to think about it. False reporting!

This "evidence" would be thrown out of court so quickly for all of the right reasons. Here Taylor concedes to me that his ONLY substantive claim from his opening statement referencing Biden not only isn't first hand...it's not even second hand

he Dems/media are desperately relying on Taylor as their star witness to show there was an impeachable offense of quid pro quo. Aside from the fact he admits he has no idea what quid pro quo even means, Taylor also admitted to me his claims aren't based on 1st hand knowledge

The George Kent transcript was just released & once again there’s ZERO 1st hand info of US $ to Ukraine being linked to specific investigations. I'm sure the Dems & media would love to rely though on the unreliable here: Taylor told Kent that Sondland told Taylor, etc. etc. etc.

It appears Ambassador Yovanovitch did not accurately answer this question I asked her during her “impeachment inquiry” deposition under oath.

Real Cracker Jack reporting here. What actually happened in the room is Adam Schiff made up a new rule that day that NOTHING AT ALL can be asked related to the Intel Community. Very different line of questioning than what the AP inaccurately wrote here.

Volker confirmed to me during his interview that in no way, shape or form was there any quid pro quo whatsoever.

Yes it does seem to be a good cause. So good on her doing something useful.

Please, please don't let there be a story next week that the Trumps are building a new resort in Morocco!

As we reflect this week on the horrific 9/11 attack, it’s important to remember how far we’ve come in combatting radical Islamist terrorist groups but also how much work is left. We stand strong against regimes that sponsor terror & encourage violence against the US & our allies.

<snip>

To have an honorable opposition there needs to be someone in the opposition with honor. The GOP has long since abandoned any pretense to that, and indeed, strives to eliminate anyone with even vestiges of such a tendency from so much as running for office as a Republican.

Faced with a choice between acting with honor or keeping their positions within the GOP hierarchy at all costs they have, almost to a man, chosen the later.

If there is an honorable opposition to be found anywhere, it won't be within the GOP. Not this decade, and likely not the next.

As soon as Roy Cooper was elected Governor in 2016 the GOP controlled General Assembly (our Senate and HoR) went into high gear, before Cooper had a chance to even take office, passing as much legislation as they could to emasculate the Governor's office. Since they held a super majority in both branches this continued to some degree until the last election when they lost the certain ability to override a Governor's veto. Many cases are still in court regarding some of the actions they took.

S. 693, the “National POW/MIA Flag Act,” which honors service members who are Prisoners of War (POW) or Missing in Action (MIA) by increasing frequency of POW/MIA flag display on specified Federal properties.
This is a subhuman scumbag just showing it off for his animals.

He has disrespected servicemen and women constantly. Now he is wrapped in what I assume is a pre-humped flag.

**** trump with a dead porcupine.

As we reflect this week on the horrific 9/11 attack, it’s important to remember how far we’ve come in combatting radical Islamist terrorist groups but also how much work is left. We stand strong against regimes that sponsor terror & encourage violence against the US & our allies.


That was 2 months ago. Has Trump looked at the date and confused 11/9 with 9/11?

Maybe he was thinking of Rudy, who ALWAYS brought up 9/11.

Please, please don't let there be a story next week that the Trumps are building a new resort in Morocco!
Indeed.

*snerk*

Anyways, time to poke at a couple things of interest.

Houston Elects 19 Black Women Judges, so Texas Gov. and Legislature Move to End Judicial Elections.

More specifically, end judicial elections in very high population areas ONLY. In other words, city areas. In other words, areas that pretty much invariably vote Democrat. Looks like the Democrats managed to get them to partially back down on that - temporarily, at least, but this is just another in the long line of confirmations about how much Republicans are willing to support democracy.

Fox News is now blasting the liberal 'War on Thanksgiving'

A single blogger on HuffPo decided that it wouldn't be bad to recommend considering reducing one's carbon footprint by doing things like buying locally sourced food.

Fox decided that that is proof that liberals are at war with Thanksgiving.

As much as I support the 1st Amendment, I would have no qualms at all with Fox being shut down over the sheer dishonesty of so much of the propaganda they push.

Bringing the word “Nationalism” back into the mainstream - great job by Rich Lowry! Very important book.
