    The House judiciary committee has asked a federal judge to force testimony from Don McGahn, Trump’s former White House counsel.

    McGahn, who featured prominently in the portion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on whether the president obstructed justice, was subpoenaed by the panel back in April. But the White House has blocked his testimony, claiming he had “absolute” immunity.

    This marks the first lawsuit House Democrats have filed to force a witness’ testimony since regaining control of the chamber. House speaker Nancy Pelosi notified her caucus about the imminent lawsuit in a “Dear Colleague” letter earlier today.

    A Ghost To Most says:

    It is El Paso that bears the most terrible moral weight, and Donald Trump is famously not a man who carries moral weight longer than it takes to flush the condom and pay the porn star.

    Make absolutely no mistake: Donald Trump does not care that the shooter in El Paso killed people based on the color of their skin. He does not care that his rhetoric over immigration and race has fueled a crop of racially motivated mass killers. The El Paso shooter’s manifesto was pure Stephen Miller/Tucker Carlson white nationalist fanfic, reflecting word for word the tropes and themes of “demographic replacement” and “invasion” that are so common in the new language of Trump’s Republican party.

    I won’t say his name, but White ISIS McLovin’s immigrant-hating manifesto reads as spot-on to a meaningful faction of the Trump base, so much so it seems ripped from Tucker Carlson’s teleprompter.

    Shame about all the bodies, right? But it’s Trump or MS-13 gay sharia socialism, man. What are ya gonna do?

    As for the hospital staff…I am disgusted by the giddy smiles and cheesing and grinning. As a hospitial employee myself, I also know they cannot make you be a prop for anyone without your consent or permission. The fact that the hospital ok’ed the used of their employees for this makes me sick

    At the El Paso Emergency Operations Center, Trump just attacked Sherrod Brown and Nan Whaley, saying that “they shouldn’t be politicking today” even as Trump himself continues to criticize them and other politicians.

    The trade war has hit farmers already beset by years of low commodity prices due to global overproduction and this year a string of bad weather. U.S. farm income dropped 16% last year to $63 billion, about half the level it was as recently as 2013.
    U.S. Agricultural exports to China dropped by more than half in 2018 after the trade war began, falling from $19.5 billion in 2017 to $9.2 billion in 2018.

    I’m sorry but they’re dopes. Trump absolutely screwed them and, apart from some pockets of them who have figured it out, they’re apparently going to stick with him until they’re bankrupt.

    The farms should change hands. The next owners maybe won’t be so gullible. Let markets take care of it. The land value will drop and maybe some new people can buy it up. Obama was just much, much better for them.

    This, by the way, is the impact of false equivalence. The Trump campaign deliberately lied & called what Joaquin did doxxing, and because that blatant lie was allowed to circulate unchecked, a narrative took hold, and the result is that his supporters targeted me for retribution

Especially right at this moment in our history, the film is vital. Violent white supremacists are no longer relegated to the fringes of American society but instead have somebody they perceive as their champion, Donald Trump, in the Oval Office. And they’re getting more violent. And they’re killing people.

    So without further ado, it is WONKETTE QUIZ TIME. Here are 19 statements. Some of them were made by Derek Vinyard before he and his friends committed violent neo-Nazi hate crimes against immigrants, others were made by the sitting president of the United States. Can YOU tell the difference?

    There’s also a big difference between going to Paulie’s Gym to lift weights and going to Golds Gym to lift weights. One is clean, brightly lit, has a locker room, has trainers and showers, the other doesn’t.

    One you go to in part for the scene and to be seen, the other you just go to to lift weights.

    Some people rely on instructors, coaches and “motivators” to exercise at their “peak”, some don’t.

    Having worked as a bike messenger for a while and having spent a lot of time commuting to work on a bike, year round, I fully understand the fear of riding on the streets in a lot of places. I wen’t through 12 bikes and was very lucky not to be killed or crippled many times.
