This Pete Buttcheeks guy is making a good first impression
Yeah, wish he'd run for Senate, though. Same as with Beto, who should Kick Cornyn's ass out.

I guess a presidential run isn't a bad way to get a lot of attention and build a profile before running for Senate.

Really hope Stacy Abrams goes for Perdue in Georgia, too.

Wow, the really bad quotes aside, I would like to rather speak about things that matter.

“It’s a reflection of us still not knowing,” Page told Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) when questioned about texts she and Strzok exchanged in May 2017 as Robert Mueller was being named special counsel to take over the Russia investigation.

With that statement, Page acknowledged a momentous fact: After nine months of using some of the most awesome surveillance powers afforded to U.S. intelligence, the FBI still had not made a case connecting Trump or his campaign to Russia’s election meddling.
I will just leave that there without comment.

Senate rejects national emergency declaration in sharp rebuke to Trump

The US Senate delivered a sharp rebuke to Donald Trump on Thursday, voting to overturn his declaration last month of a national emergency in order to divert taxpayer funds to the US-Mexico border.

In a 59-41 vote, 12 Republicans joined every Senate Democrat in a rare move to block the president’s effort to divert billions in funding to build his long-promised border wall without congressional approval.

But the real story is that 41 of the Senate’s 53 Republicans voted with Trump. That’s enough to sustain the veto he has promised. So the wall will proceed, even though Americans and their elected representatives oppose it.

Because of the president’s veto power, all he needs is one-third of either body to stand with him. And he has that. A president who lost the popular vote in 2016, backed by a party that lost the election of 2018, is acting against the will of the public. The threat to America isn’t coming from beyond our borders. It’s coming from within.

It's gratifying watching AOC pick Wilbur Ross apart over his lack of compliance when he added citizenship questions to the 2020 census.
