    GOP lawmaker accuses CNN host of making up severity of Puerto Rico crisis

    Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) on Thursday accused CNN host Chris Cuomo of making up information about the circumstances in Puerto Rico, which was battered by two hurricanes last month.

    • rikyrah

      So, this is how they’re going to play this.

      We’re making it up.
      They don’t know what’s going on in front of their eyes.
      Reporters and chefs can make it to rural towns – BUT FEMA CAN’T.

      It’s NOT FEMA’S responsibility to get the supplies to the towns – it’s THE MAYORS?

      OK…this is how you want to kill American citizens.

      We get it now.

    McCain, Cardin scold Trump for missing Russian sanctions deadline
    10/11/17 04:31 PM EDT

    Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) slammed the Trump administration on Wednesday for missing a deadline in implementing sanctions against Russia.

    “The delay calls into question the Trump administration’s commitment to the sanctions bill which was signed into law more than two months ago, following months of public debate and negotiations in Congress. They’ve had plenty of time to get their act together,” the pair said in a joint statement on Wednesday.

    By Oct. 1, the McCain and Cardin-penned sanctions bill required the administration clarify which targets would be identified and punished as part of Russia’s defense and intelligence sectors. The administration has not yet done so.

    The healthy D.C. economy is leaving longtime black residents behind, new study finds

    “As the city becomes wealthier, more younger and affluent residents are moving in, raising housing prices and pushing longtime black residents out of the city. In 2015, the population of black residents in the District — which garnered the nicknamed “Chocolate City” — dipped below 50 percent for the first time in 60 years.”

    “The Georgetown report traces the inequities in the District today to discriminatory practices that once kept black residents out of the economy.”

        It might help her gain traction in the Pinelands (our answer to Deliverance) and the red Shore areas that took the direct hit from Sandy, but not much elsewhere. There’s lot of blue counties and the wealthy red counties in the northwest part of the state need Latinos to clean their pools, do their landscaping, and nanny their kids.

        They’re going strong (both the GOP Governor Candidates), on the illegal Hispanic Gangs ready to come and rape and murder you. Gillespie’s running hard on MS-13 in Virginia.

        I have lived in an urban area pretty much my entire life. Complete with gangs. It’s just hard for me to compute that these ads would make sense. I have never seen non-White gangs ALLOWED to take over White areas. (see how I put that?) I’ve never seen it.

        If this has happened in NJ or Virginia, please enlighten me. I am always up for learning something new.

    • Town

      They’ve BEEN running that “MS-13 is coming to get you and Ralph Northam is letting them” ads for weeks now.

      Then the guy running for attorney general is running “Latinos are taking your spots in college, I’ll put a stop to that” ads.

      I’m waiting for Jill Vogel to “try it” with Justin Fairfax, too.

        Melania is a try hard and she will never be lauded as the fashion icon Michelle Obama was because Michelle Obama wore the clothes. The clothes are wearing Melania Trump.

        • JojoRaze

          And remember this woman was a fashion model. Yet, since we don’t see her personality, brains, or her character as a woman-since she acts deaf-mute-we don’t know what to make of her fashion choices.
          There is no theme or connection in the clothes, Michelle had kitten heels, wide belts and sleeveless sheath dresses as a consistent theme throughout her terms to signify she was mom-in-chief but strong and fit.

          The only consistent theme I’ve seen with Melania are Ray-Ban sunglasses which she wears because she doesn’t want to connect with people since she’s covering her eyes from view.

    ruemara says:
    October 12, 2017 at 1:48 pm

    The theme of this conference is “Reclaiming My Time”. The woman who popularized that phrase is not opening the convention. Let that sink in.

    Tickets for kids are $125, for adults are $300. Costs that are really out of reach for the actual women who need all the resources available of networking, learning and organizing.

    I’ve seen too many (sorry, white women) claim Sanders had built a great grassroots organizing foundation and has important experience that a nongenderist, agist person could understand made him valuable. Which I do wonder which Earth 3 Sanders they are talking about. Not the guy who couldn’t get his people registered to vote in the primary? Not the guy who blew millions in TV ads or in strange last minute flights to meet the pope. Not that guy, right?

    Ryan: Feds have duty to help Puerto Rico
    BY SCOTT WONG – 10/12/17 12:45 PM EDT

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Thursday that Puerto Rico is facing a “humanitarian crisis” and argued that the federal government has a responsibility to provide personnel and aid to the hurricane-ravaged island territory.

    But Ryan also appeared to defend controversial remarks by President Trump that federal resources cannot remain in Puerto Rico “forever,” saying the territory needs to get back “on its own two feet.” The president did not make similar comments about two other regions that have been slammed by hurricanes, Houston and south Florida.

    “Yes, we need to make sure that Puerto Rico can begin to stand on its own two feet,” Ryan told reporters at his weekly news conference. “They’ve already had tough fiscal problems to begin with. … We’ve got to do more to help Puerto Rico rebuild its own economy so that it can be self-sufficient.”

      Dear Charles Pierce:
      Let me make it very clear to you.
      Barack Obama is no longer President; he is now a private citizen.
      All he has to do now is :
      Be BLACK.
      Pay his taxes.
      He was President for eight years and did his best to create and promote polices to help the American people.
      He and his family were vilified, he got no support from Republicans or Democrats and yet you want him to lead some bullshit “resistance”?
      HELL NO!
      He’s not your “magic negro”!
      Do your own goddamned dirty work!
      Enough of this “Help us, Barack; you’re our only hope!” bullshit!
      You, as a member of the media can start by aggressively pushing back against Donald Trump; especially since the media enabled him by not pushing back against that “birther” nonsense, giving him virtually free airtime fluffing him up, and not detailing what a bastard he is and how his elevation to the Presidency would be bad for this country.
      But, NO!
      You want Barack Obama to do your dirty work.
      HELL NO!
      Get off your lazy ass and get to work…or not.
      It’s your choice.

    Trump’s Embarrassing, Unconstitutional Response to Puerto Rico
    The president keeps pretending that he only needs to represent red states, not all Americans.

    by John Stoehr

    Donald Trump unloaded a tweetstorm this morning about Puerto Rico’s continuing recovery after Hurricane Maria that managed to appall even after all these months of being appalled by what this president is willing to say.

    I’m not going to talk about how racist it is. Many writers of color—who are smarter than I am and more authoritative than I am on matters of white supremacy—are going to talk about it. I’ll defer to them, and a lot of other white people should too.

    What I want to talk about is the obligation of the office of the presidency—to defend and protect not only the U.S. Constitution, but every single American’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. (Puerto Ricans are indeed U.S. citizens.)

    More precisely, I want to talk about why the office of the president is supposed to do those things. To that end, let’s remember the works of John Locke, the English philosopher who left an indelible mark on the Founders’ thinking, especially Thomas Jefferson’s.

    ………………………………………………………….

    Yet this morning, the president said in so many words that Puerto Rico was a disaster before the hurricanes hit, and that the federal government can’t stay to provide aid forever. Puerto Rico, Trump implied, will have to take care of itself.

    Like I said, I’m not going to talk about the white supremacy of his tweetstorm. My point is the president is saying the natural rights of people born free and equal are like a buffet. The government can pick and choose whose rights to protect, and throw away the rest.

      President Cheney and Rove started that shit about representing the red states only.

  • MonieTalks

    They got caught with bullshit and are being called out. Why have him as a “headliner “of any Women’s march and give an exclusive interview about the choice of him. Uh huh.

    • Tamika Mallory made a mistake getting involved with these heffas.

      • Miranda

        Sure did.

    • 7thangel

      say what now?

      there are some bonafide bernie cultists in the womans march org. they tried it the first time and had to back track.

      you would think after all the issues from the first one, like inviting and partnering with severe anti choice groups, they would have learned. srsly, putting a dude that called women issues distractions and never fails to lecture and mansplain to women that they shouldn’t vote with their gender…

      tone deaf is putting it mildly

  • rikyrah

    From the Washington Post Editorial Board: The misery in Puerto Rico is completely unacceptable

    Here’s an excerpt:

    If the Americans enduring these conditions lived in Connecticut or Montana or Arkansas, would we be counseling patience? Would we be blithely accepting predictions of another month — or more — to get the power restored? No. There would be unending media coverage, people would be furious — and the president of the United States certainly wouldn’t be threatening to abandon federal relief efforts.

    The state of affairs would simply be seen as unacceptable, which it is. The 3.4 million American citizens who live in Puerto Rico are owed a far better response from their government than they have gotten these past three weeks.

    uh huh

    Facebook has removed data and thousands of posts from the site, obscuring the full reach of Russian disinformation. https://t.co/F9dGbOCzZ9

    Here’s how you know they have Tamika Mallory doing damage control.

    She links to an article Essence wrote about Maxine Waters being a speaker and how her slogan Reclaiming Our Time. Never once is Waters called a headliner.

    Meanwhile, the organizers gave an exclusive interview to Detroit Free Press (since the march is being held in Detroit) and Bernie Sanders is the highlight instead of all the women speakers you have including the supposed headliner, Maxine Waters. Come on now…..

    FUQ John Kelly. So the who dafuq is the President here! I’m tired of the media playing ALONG with NORMALIZING this behavior. Darn near the ENTIRE Washington media establishment, don’t seem to care one bit that they are aiding & abetting the normalization of bigotry, xenophobia, racism, sexism, erratic and irresponsible behavior of this administration, GOP & their supporters & followers..

    but hey, why should folks like Chuck Todd, Wolf Blitzer, Chris Cillizia, Fox News, and the usual suspects of “both sides” punditry care…naw…why should they give a shit…they got too many books and clickbait articles to push out about and death, despair & juicy gossip

    FUQ da entire LOT of ’em…
    END OF RANT!

    • Miranda

      Tell it!

      • lamh

        And FUQ them folks (ya’ll know who they are) that tried to say Kelly was a “good guy” who just wants to help the country…

        BULLSHIT! He a Trump loyalist and he is perfectly happy aiding and abetting the current shitstorm

    Fam –

    You may remember that I started my novel last year through NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month – which runs each year from November 1 -30. I hadn’t heard anything about the contest, and decided I would press on anyway and start the 2nd novel through NaNoWriMo this year. Well, that’s definitely going to happen now – I’ve already started the prep work!

    • BoomerGal
