Quote

With a stroke of his Sharpie, President Trump has launched the biggest effort in history to sweep aside 140 years of federal policy promoting professional expertise in government. It would have a vast impact on government, on its workers, and on the public’s trust in getting a fair and impartial shake from government programs.

On Wednesday, the president signed an executive order creating a new category of federal employees. Top officials could classify positions as having “a confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating character.” Then they could sweep employees holding those positions into a new “Schedule F,” where employees would lose all protections, including those against discrimination, forced reassignments and relocations, and any rights to organize or appeal personnel decisions, for example. Most important, employees could be dismissed for any reason whatsoever.

The presidential order is the explosive culmination of a volcano that’s been building within the Trump administration to root out public employees viewed as disloyal and part of the “deep state.” President Trump has tweeted that he has the authority “to fire any Executive Branch Employee.” The order puts in place the machinery to make that happen.


I am really curious for anyone still supporting and rooting for Trump whether they honestly think this is a good thing

It's time to be objective. It's possible to be a repugnican or have their values and still think Trump is a piece of dictator wannabe shit

Also I had no idea the extent but Trump is literally facing thousands of law suits when he leaves office. Fraud and rape obviously among them. No wonder he wants to stay in office for life.

It depends on the context whether the pointing is rude or not.
...but you already knew that and just tried a bit too hard to hate on trump  ::)

Name a context where it's polite. The finger point, not a open hand.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pointing

Pointing with your index finger at a person is rude and disrespectful. Use it to point at things, not people

America is also multi cultural. While Western cultures might be more laid back, many are highly offended at the gesture

I guess in Sweden using your index finger to point at people is considered friendly. It does seem a topsy turvy place to live

How much makeup does it take to color his face like that, look at his hands for what his skin tone actually is.

Yet his supporters deny he even uses any makeup and that's natural and he's a perfect physical specimen. :o

Quote
Donald Trump has gone after the news media for its continuing coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, saying it “should be an election law violation”.

“We’re rounding the turn. You know, all they want to talk about is COVID,” Mr Trump told his supporters at a rally in Pennsylvania today, pointing at the media pen behind them.

“By the way, on November 4, you won’t be hearing so much about it. ‘COVID, COVID COVID. COVID! Today let’s talk about COVID.’ All over Europe, right, Europe spike. They don’t talk about that.

“No, we are rounding the turn, and we have the vaccines coming out very soon, years ahead of schedule.”

In case you’re wondering, yes we have covered the surge in cases across Europe, and so have the President’s least favourite US media outlets, such as CNN and his hometown newspaper, The New York Times.

November 4 is the day after the election. Mr Trump was suggesting the media would stop covering the pandemic the moment it no longer has any effect on his re-election prospects.

Mr Trump echoed the same words in a series of tweets, adding in a dash of his regular argument that cases are only rising across the US because it tests so much.

“We have made tremendous progress with the China virus, but the fake news refuses to talk about it this close to the election,” he said.

“COVID, COVID, COVID is being used by them, in total co-ordination, in order to change our great early election numbers. Should be an election law violation!

“Cases up because we TEST, TEST, TEST. A fake news media conspiracy.

“Many young people who heal very fast, 99.9 per cent. Corrupt media conspiracy at all time high. On November 4, topic will totally change.

“The fake news media is riding COVID, COVID, COVID, all the way to the election. Losers!”

The guy is a literal brain dead Muppet

His 'we have so many cases because we test!' is so laughable. By the same token, as long as you dont test for pregnancies, you wont get pregnant!!

230K people in his country - This is far more people dead combining WW1, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. By the time covid is done and dusted if Trumps 'We aren't going to control this pandemic' plan is allowed to go ahead (if he wins) and you could possibly throw in all the deaths from WW2 as well

And people give this guy the tick of approval  :o ::)

Since your first covid death in early February you have lost an average of just over 6000 people a week to this virus. That's like 2 '9/11' terror attack worth of deaths EVERY WEEK - and the cost to your economy is monumental

And yet, nobody in the government seems to care - probably because their shitty handling is what is responsible for it

In your constitution isn't 'Church and state' meant to be seperate or something?

Therefore can partisan hacks like Amy draw on her religious zealotry to pass judgement?

You can tell the repugnicans are scared.... If they honestly believed they were in a good electoral position they wouldn't have rushed this

They see the writing on the wall. The country, indeed the world is becoming less religious and moving to 'the left'. Once 'red' states like Texas are becoming 'blue' as they get in more immigrants. They don't win the popular vote brass use most of the country doesnt share their values.

Do they want this lasting legacy for a while.

Hopefully if Biden comes through he can just 'stack' the court to even it out so you guys can continue to enjoy your freedoms and progressive values and not be set back 100 years for some outdated regressive values

It gets better. The GOP Judiciary Twitter account sent a message saying they got their nomination confirmed, followed by Happy Birthday Hillary.
https://twitter.com/JudiciaryGOP/status/1320878683423428609

And earlier, the Supreme Court ruled that Absentee ballots in Wisconsin need to be received by the close of polls on Election Day, as opposed to just postmarked by Election Day. To be clear, that isn't a Federal requirement, since some other states allow ballots to still count as long as they are postmarked prior to Election Day and received within a certain amount of time after (Alaska, for example, counts ballots received up to 10 days after Election Day, Illinois allows up to 2 weeks, there are several more). In other words, it's very much a "States' Rights" kind of issue. But that's not the important thing. Kavanaugh thinks the Supreme Court didn't go far enough and that Federal courts should be able to weigh in on how all states run their elections (something Justice Rehnquist proposed back in the Bush/Gore election that 2 other conservative justices thought was going too far). That way, "suspicious impropriety" doesn't arise as votes are counted after the big night. Votes that were made legitimately, by Americans who have the right to cast that vote and make their voice heard.

This is a pretty bad look.


Edit for clarity: In this particular ruling, the court actually went along with the Wisconsin Supreme Court's decision, the alarming thing is Kavanaugh's adoption of the Rehnquist concurrence from 2000 about how the Federal courts should have more say in how states conduct their elections.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/judge-says-justice-department-cannot-defend-trump-e-jean-carroll-n1244924
Quote
A federal judge on Tuesday rejected an attempt by the Department of Justice to represent President Donald Trump in a defamation lawsuit brought by E. Jean Carroll, who has claimed that he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s.

The judge denied the DOJ’s effort to substitute itself as the defendant in the case that Carroll, an advice columnist, filed against the president last year.

“The president of the United States is not an 'employee of the government' within the meaning of the relevant statutes,” U.S. District Court Judge Lewis A. Kaplan wrote in the decision Tuesday.

“Even if he were such an 'employee,' President Trump’s allegedly defamatory statements concerning Ms. Carroll would not have been within the scope of his employment," the judge wrote. "Accordingly, the motion to substitute the United States in place of President Trump is denied.”

Carroll accused Trump of sexually assaulting her at a Bergdorf Goodman store in New York City in the mid-1990s. Trump has denied the claim, saying "she's not my type" and it "never happened."

The Justice Department had argued that because the president denied the accusation in his official capacity, the agency can defend him against the suit.

Carroll's lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, lauded the ruling in a statement Tuesday.

"The simple truth is that President Trump defamed our client because she was brave enough to reveal that he had sexually assaulted her, and that brutal, personal attack cannot be attributed to the Office of the President," she said.

"In response to the Trump DOJ’s startling claim that virtually anything that Donald Trump says is within his scope of employment as president, the court explained that “[a]ccepting [that position] would mean that a president is free to defame anyone who criticizes his conduct or impugns his character — without adverse consequences to that president and no matter what injury he inflicts on the person defamed,” she added.


Sucked in Trump

He knows he's guilty

But lets say he's innocent. He has to be the biggest moron to fight against proving his innocence. He obviously doesn't want to testify his innocence or provide any DNA sample etc because he's clearly innocent. For I guess, reasons ::)

I guess this case is one of the thousands he will have to defend against when he can no longer enjoy the immunity of the oval office.

Speaking of, why do you Americans allow a President to be immune to this? Any other part of the civilised world the scandal alone would bury the pollie. Grow a nutsack and demand your leaders are accountable to their actions!

There's strategies to repair the courts that don't involve the nuclear options of increasing the size of the court to 13 and adding AOC plus three to it.

The laziest strategy, and the one I'm afraid Biden will run with, is just to threaten the Supreme Court into making fair decisions.  The problem with this strategy is that it evaporates when the Democrats don't hold Congress and the White House.

This didn't make the news at the time but one of the first things the Democrats did when they won the house is pass HR1.  https://www.commoncause.org/democracy-wire/what-is-the-for-the-people-act-also-known-as-h-r-1/

Basically it says, everyone gets to vote without ridiculous nonsense getting in the way, restrict gerrymanding, restrict dark money.

I would hope that if the Dems take the entire government that they kill the filibuster and pass this immediately.  It would be interesting to see how Trump's Supreme Court would react to this.  I assume they'd strike down as much as they can get away with.

Protecting and expanding voting rights and election security:

    Automatic voter registration
    Online voter registration
    Same day voter registration
    Make election day a federal holiday
    Voting rights restoration to people with prior felony convictions
    Expand early voting and simplify absentee voting
    Prohibit voter purges that kick eligible voters off the registration rolls
    Enhance election security with increase support for a paper-based voting system and more oversight over election vendors
    End partisan gerrymandering by established independent redistricting commissions
    Prohibit providing false information about the elections process that discourage voting and other deceptive practices

Reduce the influence of big money in our politics:

    Require secret money organizations that spend money in elections to disclose their donors
    Upgrade online political spending transparency rules to ensure voters know who is paying for the advertisements they see
    Create a small donor-focused public financing matching system so candidates for Congress aren’t just reliant on big money donors to fund their campaigns and set their priorities
    Strengthen oversight rules to ensure those who break our campaign finance laws are held accountable
    Overhaul the Federal Election Commission to enforce campaign finance law
    Prohibit the use of shell companies to funnel foreign money in U.S. elections
    Require government contractors to disclose their political spending

Ensure an ethical government accountable to the people:

    Slow the revolving door between government officials and lobbyists
    Expand conflict of interest law
    Ban members of Congress from serving on corporate boards
    Require presidents to publicly disclose their tax returns
    Overhaul the Office of Government Ethics to ensure stronger enforcement of ethics rules
    Require members of the U.S. Supreme Court abide by a judicial code of ethics


Sounds pretty fair, decent and much needed. Any repugnican voters here disagree with any of this? Why?

I mean, Trump said he wanted to 'drain the swamp'. This bill seems to go a long way into achieving that :)

"But... but... liberals vote so we must stop them!"

It's just mind blowing how the Republicans have become so anti-vote.  Register to vote automatically when you get your drivers license?  Blasphemy!  More voting days?  Communist!  Make election day a national holiday?  Socialist!  Easier voting?  No!  Make it harder!

How can they even pretend to be American when they fight against VOTING.  That should be the most basic, sacrosanct right we have.... but no... gotta keep 'those people' from voting you know.

"Our current President, he whines that 60 Minutes is too tough. Do you think he's going to stand up to dictators? He thinks Lesley Stahl's a bully," Mr Obama asked.

"Just yesterday, he said that Putin of Russia, Xi of China and Kim Jong-un of North Korea want him to win. We know! We know, because you've been giving them whatever they want for the last four years. Of course they want you to win! That's not a good thing!

"You shouldn't brag about the fact that some of our greatest adversaries think they'd be better off with you in office. Of course they do! What does that say about you?

"Why are you bragging about that? Come on."

Thing is that the president (regardless of party) doesn't have anything to threaten the Supreme Court with.  Checks and balances and all that.

I would hope that if the Dems take the entire government that they kill the filibuster and pass this immediately.
I'm not sure if killing the filibuster would be that smart, seeing as both parties have used it extensively when they were in the minority.

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/10/trump-fires-noaas-chief-scientist-for-asking-political-appointees-to-follow-scientific-integrity-rules/

Quote
The Chief Scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is out.

Craig McLean, who until recently was the acting chief scientist, had sent a memo to political appointees at NOAA requesting that they, like everyone else, observe the agency’s scientific integrity rules, The New York Times reports.

The next day one of President Donald Trump’s political appointees, Erik Noble, told him he was out and had already been replaced.


The NOAA is the federal government’s premier scientific agency. It oversees vital agencies including the National Weather Service.

The Times reveals that Trump’s new political appointees at the agency “have questioned accepted facts about climate change and imposed stricter controls on communications at the agency.”

It’s a formula Americans have seen at other federal agencies under this president, including the scandal surrounding Health and Human Services spokesperson Michael Caputo.

“Mr. McLean had sent some of the new political appointees a message that asked them to acknowledge the agency’s scientific integrity policy, which prohibits manipulating research or presenting ideologically driven findings,” The Times reports.


Seriously WTF? I know Trump is anti science but damn.

Trump wants every institution and public service personnel to be lying 'yes' men. And people want to vote this guy in for another 4 years?

Strongly Trending (Google) since immediately after the second debate is CAN I CHANGE MY VOTE? This refers changing it to me. The answer in most states is YES. Go do it. Most important Election of your life!

No Trump. They were probably wondering if they can change it from you after your 'performance'

But thanks for letting the voters know that is absolutely possible lol

The Chief Scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is out.

Craig McLean, who until recently was the acting chief scientist, had sent a memo to political appointees at NOAA requesting that they, like everyone else, observe the agency’s scientific integrity rules, The New York Times reports.

The next day one of President Donald Trump’s political appointees, Erik Noble, told him he was out and had already been replaced.


The NOAA is the federal government’s premier scientific agency. It oversees vital agencies including the National Weather Service.

The Times reveals that Trump’s new political appointees at the agency “have questioned accepted facts about climate change and imposed stricter controls on communications at the agency.”

It’s a formula Americans have seen at other federal agencies under this president, including the scandal surrounding Health and Human Services spokesperson Michael Caputo.

Just picture it..

A week from now, we might not have to wake up every day to see how the president has embarrassed the entire country.

You assume he could leave quietly and with dignity and humility.

I did not think Trump possessed any of those qualities
