Head in the sand Republicans

Republicans are anti-science and anti-democracy. Never forget.

“Political appointees at the Interior Department have sought to play up climate pollution from California wildfires while downplaying emissions from fossil fuels as a way of promoting more logging in the nation’s forests, internal emails obtained by the Guardian reveal.”
Politicizing the climate has been a long term conservative goal. The problem is conservatives have to live on the same planet, breath the same air, drink the same water, and eat the same food. There is no alternative universe for conservatives to live in. Conservative greed will kill all of us irrespective of political beliefs, as science has no political beliefs.

Science has no political beliefs. Republicans are anti-science and anti-democracy. Never forget.

Face it. It’s all about the racism and misogyny.

Tariffs are not free market. Exploding deficits are not fiscally responsible. Destroying the State Dept is not American exceptionalism. Welfare for farmers is not small government.

Face it. It’s all about the racism and misogyny.

In opening arguments of the impeachment trial, President Donald Trump’s defense misrepresented the findings of a special counsel’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election by claiming the president was cleared of obstruction of justice.

A look at some of his legal team’s claims Tuesday during debate on the format of the Senate trial:

A short informative article fact checking the lies of the presidents defence team.   Worth the read if you want to know just how brazenly they are lying.   Hugs

WH Attorney’s Defense of Trump Debunked and Discredited by Nearly Everyone on Social Media With Readily Available Facts

WH Attorney’s Defense of Trump Debunked and Discredited by Nearly Everyone on Social Media With Readily Available Facts

Deputy White House Counsel Mike Purpura (photo) has been making the majority of today’s arguments – they have decided that not enough people will be watching on TV so Saturday’s defense will last not eight but just two hours.

Purpura is not doing a good job – unless his job is to lie to U.S. Senators and the American people.

Republican Senators are likely glad to hear yet again the lies spread on Fox News by the White House and its allies, but the American people know better. They know they are lies, and they were only too happy to discredit and debunk them in real time moments after Purpura uttered them on the Senate floor.

All the responses from people correcting the lies of the defence counsels are at the link above.   Hugs

 

Democrats Say Trump’s Lawyers Just Made A Great Case — For Calling Witnesses and Documents

They accused House impeachment managers of leaving out key information and presenting a skewed narrative. Leaving the trial, several Democratic senators said the obvious way to solve this dispute is to subpoena new witnesses and documents.

“The thing that most irks me, I mean really irks me, is that we’re having this conversation when there are literally people who could confirm directly — like [Trump’s acting chief of staff] Mick Mulvaney or [former national security adviser John] Bolton — they could confirm so much of this one way or the other,” said Sen. Cory Booker.

White House lawyers have opposed issuing new subpoenas. But Sen. Tim Kaine noted that one of their main objections to the impeachment process was that Trump’s lawyers were not allowed to cross-examine witnesses during their initial, closed-door depositions.

“They’re going to stand there and tell us cross-examination is the greatest engine for discovery of truth, but oh by the way we don’t want you to cross-examine witnesses,” said Kaine. “They made the case this morning for why documents and witnesses are absolutely necessary to resolve this.”

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a lawyer, said trials have shown the best way to resolve factual disputes between two legal teams is to call in witnesses and lawyers.

Republican Senators Exercise Selective Outrage At Trump’s Impeachment Trial

Filed under: Criminal, Fascism, News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 08:25

The third day of Donald Trump’s impeachment trial once again featured Republican senators competing with each other to see who could show the most disdain for the idea of their constitutional duty and the oath they took to provide impartial justice. Sen. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican, apparently felt one-upped by the odious Martha McSally of Arizona in the race to be Trump’s favorite woman senator, so she stepped up her game by maligning decorated American combat veteran Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who still serves in uniform and who has been subject to threats of violence since he testified in the House impeachment investigation.

Then there’s the ongoing middle-school brat behavior on display for the handful of reporters who are allowed to tell us about it. Which, by the way, Sen. Susan Collins thinks is too many. She wants one whole group of reporters, those sitting in the front row of the gallery where they can actually see what’s happening, to be booted—presumably so they don’t have a clear view of the Republican senators who are doodlingplaying with toys, working on crosswords, chomping gum, and wandering around the chamber and leaving it for long stretches at a time. All in defiance of the rules they swore to follow. And once again, Chief Justice John Roberts might as well have been a potted plant in response.

More of the Republican’s complaining and trying hard not to learn of tRump’s crimes.     Hugs
