Cosby and Roseanne

have had to reap what they have sown, when will The Apprentice star follow suit?

Bill Maher speaks to Roseanne during his show.

He thanks her for helping him when he was struggling, etc but draws the line at her "new" show and its content.

INDIVISIBLE just announced their plan to flip

The House and state elections. GOTV RESIST!

There’s a massive, movement-wide effort underway to take back the House and Senate, governor’s mansions, and statehouses, and Indivisible groups will work collaboratively in their communities to win in November. Every district’s different, and Indivisible groups make strategic choices about how to best get involved in races, and we’ll be there to support them at every step of the way. That’s the promise of our political program: Indivisible435.

And over the last few months, we’ve had hundreds of conversations with group leaders and movement allies to identify gaps and needs for our movement, and the larger progressive movement. Based on those conversations, we’re investing our resources into programs that will support the long-term powerbuilding of our movement: building scalable electoral tools for all Indivisible groups and providing deep support on targeted races.
Here’s a deep-dive into Indivisible435:

Beginning today, Indivisible groups not coordinating with political campaigns can sign up for their members to use scalable voter contact tools (they’re literally signing up right now!). We've tested the tools and trainings during the primaries to inform our general election and get out the vote efforts. As we get closer to the midterm, our organizing team will:

Provide access to canvassing and phonebanking tools to members of every Indivisible group.
Train and guide Indivisible groups on using these resources to grow their membership, build their power, and, yes, win elections.
Build a national volunteer peer-to-peer text-banking and phonebanking program that could reach millions of voters.

We’ve also already doubled our organizing staff capacity to heavily support races in 13 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin. Our work in these 13 states will touch:

11 governor’s races (7 GOP-held seats, 4 Democrat-held seats);
12 Senate races (6 GOP-held seats, 6 Democrat-held seats); and,
50 competitive House races (40 GOP-held districts and 10 Democrat-held districts).

Melania/Melanie is not missing or hiding in NYC...

CNN just reported that she is still recovering from kidney surgery and that is why no one has seen her since released from the hospital last week. Nothing nefarious or mysterious as many were suggesting.

Are there DUers who live in Nunes's district?

I was wondering what the general consensus is in his district from people who actually live there. Is the $$$ coming in to support Janz having any impact? Are the agricultural problems coming from the tariffs and China a real concern? Are the immigration and ICE issues effecting their political affiliations?

I doubt Russia is an issue with the MAGA fans and Janz is focusing on local issues. Is he swaying the voters?

Will the legalization of abortion in Ireland effect/influence

Irish American Catholic voters in the US midterms?


If gas prices continue to rise,

will this issue impact votes during the midterms?

Question: Why won't Putin give Assange

the permission to stay in Russia like Snowden? He could even have his internet access back.

If he is kicked out of the embassy he possibly goes to jail for rape. If he gets Schiff to meet with him to clear his name as far as wikileaks and Hillary emails go, then would this benefit him as far as the rape charges go? The charges are from a completely different country. Why does he want to clear his name with the US Dems? Randy Credico announced this on MSNBC yesterday. Apparently Arrange told him to contact Schiff and to do this. Meanwhile their mutual pal Stone has unfriended Credico after he bad-mouthed him in the media over the past month and has harassed him.

Randy Credico is telling Ari Melber that Assange wants to talk to Schiff

and clear his name and tell him "the truth". He is a pal of Assange and Roger Stone. Stone and he are no longer talking since Stone is harassing him and has been for weeks since he last spoke with Ari Melber (MSNBC). Assange told Credico to break this on MSNBC.

No joke...He didn't even do Nixon impersonations this time either.



auto correct sucks!

The coin of POTUS and Kim was reduced yesterday

from $24.95 to $19.95 after the summit was canceled and so many people wanted it that the W House gift shop site that sells it crashed. Many people wanted to buy it as a possible collector's item while others actually want it since they are his cult/fans.

Now it seems that the coin people saw on the site and ordered it is NOT the coin they will receive. The coin pictured on the site is the one that has only 200 produced and that one IS the possibly valuable one. People who go to the site will read the details which says that a different picture is being made for the "real" coin that was $24.95. You CAN cancel your order though.
