Not just Trump

The news is out: [A CBS News investigation has uncovered a possible pay-for-play scheme involving the Republican National Committee and President Donald Trump’s nominee for ambassador to the Bahamas. Emails obtained by CBS News show the nominee, San Diego billionaire Doug Manchester, was asked by the RNC to donate half a million dollars as his confirmation in the Senate hung in the balance, chief investigative correspondent Jim Axelrod reports.
When Hurricane Dorian ravaged the Bahamas in September, Manchester wanted to help. So the San Diego real estate developer, who prefers the nickname “Papa Doug,” loaded up his private jet with supplies and headed for the hard-hit Caribbean country where he owned a home – and hoped to soon be serving as U.S. ambassador.
A Trump supporter, Manchester donated $1 million to Trump’s inauguration fund. He was offered the Bahamas post the day after Mr. Trump was sworn in. Manchester said Trump told him, “I should probably be the ambassador to the Bahamas and you should be president.”]

Let’s be fair; Trump is doing what everyone else is.

Roger that

The news is out: [Roger Stone was convicted, among other things, of lying to Congress about his conversations with WikiLeaks’s Julian Assange. He falsely claimed: He had no emails, documents or texts relating to WikiLeaks; he never sought damaging information (i.e., emails) about Hillary Clinton; never contacted WikiLeaks through intermediaries; and never contacted the Trump campaign about WikiLeaks. The last lie — denying contacts with the Trump campaign — raises the question as to whether President Trump lied in responses to Robert S. Mueller II.]

Roger Stone is the “sideshow Bob” of the Trump administration.

Father of the day

The news is out: [A father in Massachusetts is facing criminal charges after his 5-year-old son allegedly brought heroin to school and said tasting it made him feel like Spider-Man.
Benny Garcia’s son took a bag of heroin to kindergarten on Thursday, prosecutors said, and put some of the powder in his mouth. The boy told a teacher he got it from his living room, the Daily Hampshire Gazette reported, and said eating the powder turns him into the superhero whose image was stamped on the plastic bag.
The boy was taken to the hospital and is OK, Assistant District Attorney Matthew Green said in court, according to the Gazette.
After police received permission from the boy’s mother to search the family’s apartment, they found more than 200 bags of heroin and cocaine, including a Spider-Man-decorated bag similar to the one the boy had at school. As authorities handcuffed Garcia, bags of white powder fell from his person, Holyoke Police Lt. James Albert told the Gazette.
Garcia, 29, pleaded not guilty to drug possession and distribution charges and a child endangerment charge on Friday. Social services have removed the boy and an infant from the family, Albert told the Gazette.]

Believe or not, they are among us.

Another blooming idiot

The news is out: [WASHINGTON–Attorney General William Barr said Friday that President Donald Trump’s political opponents have pursued a “scorched earth, no-holds-barred resistance” meant to “sabotage” his presidency.
“The pursuit of scores of investigations and an avalanche of subpoenas is meant to incapacitate” the administration, Barr said in a biting address to the conservative Federalist Society.
The attorney general, in a full-throated defense of the president, said the political “harassment” contravenes the intent of the Constitution’s framers who, he said, meant to provide the chief executive with sweeping authority.
“I am convinced that the deck has been stacked against the executive,” Barr said.
Barr’s remarks came as Trump has been swept up in an impeachment inquiry over allegations he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open investigations into political rival and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.]

It seems that Attorney General William Barr has never read the Constitution which is the law of the land.
