Famous (almost) last words as recounted by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC:

"I am not a crook." - Richard Nixon

"I never had sex with that woman." - Bill Clinton

"I never worked for Russia." - Donald Trump

When even Fox News is willing to discuss President Trump as someone who "committed a felony" (as Judge Napolitano did recently) and pushing back on some of Trump's wall rhetoric, I think it's safe to say that the people who still support this man has shrunk to a very, very small group. Yet he maintains an overall approval rating around 40%. I find that rather shocking.

It's treason in plain sight.

Here's the NYT article on the FBI investigation into Manchurian Candidate Trump:

Even after everything, "[The FBI] grew increasingly concerned about whether the president's actions constituted anti-American activity" is still a pretty mind-blowing sentence to read.

Democrats shift toward impact on jobs as climate change moves to front of 2020 agenda:

". . . The proposal . . . calls for a special committee in the House to draft a plan by 2020 for a historic multitrillion-dollar federal spending and loan program with the goal of building a '100 percent greenhouse gas neutral power generation system' and providing millions of jobs in low-income areas."

MSNBC just called him "The Manchurian President" which might be a better title for this thread.

Interesting developments in terms of US elections for the future:

https://www.smh.com.au/world/north-amer ... 50gdk.html

What the US should do, but I concede change is often reluctant and slow but all Americans who care about and want to improve democracy should read this opinion piece from Australia. Despite my dismay with politics in my own country one thing I can say in the positive is that I have ABSOLUTE confiedence in the manner in which voting is undertaken and carried out by a Government funded and independent apolitical body:

https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal ... 50es9.html

The only aspect of the above article I disagree with is that this paragraph "Australians should be grateful to have a well regarded, independent agency doing the job – and resist all attempts to politicise any part of the public service, because it’s a slippery slope and the AEC might be next." I'm afraid numerous departments of the Australian Public Service have been politicised over the last 22 years (I should know - I spent my working life of 33 years in one of them and one only has to be familiar with local issues to see it across most departments), however the AEC is one of the few exceptions and the Australian public must diligent to insure that the AEC is never comprimised.

The Broward County re-count found fewer ballots for Nelson (D) but it's OK because the Broward County re-count has been thrown out because it was submitted two minutes late. It was two minutes late because the clerk uploading the count to the Florida Secretary of State's system didn't know how to work the website. Makes you wonder if Scott (R) and Trump don't have a point that something doesn't smell right when all the Broward County incompetence has benefitted Nelson to Scott's detriment.

The State will now go to a manual recount in all counties.
