    Here's a quick summary of the main points in last night's letter:

    1- The president is running a reelection campaign openly based on racism. This morning, he tweeted “I am happy to inform all the people living their Suburban Lifestyle Dream that you will no longer be bothered or financially hurt by having low income housing built in your neighborhood

    2- But for all that Trump seems eager to win reelection, he appears to have little interest in governing

    3- Apparently frustrated that even Republicans did not want to put $1.75 billion into the package to fund the construction of a new FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., which would keep the site from becoming a hotel that could rival his own, Trump appears to have abandoned the whole process of negotiating a new bill.

    4 - Instead of focusing on the looming economic crisis, Trump upset members of both parties today when he announced that he would be withdrawing 12,000 troops from Germany. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT), a former Republican presidential nominee agreed: “The plan outlined by the Administration today to remove thousands of U.S. troops from Germany is a grave error. It is a slap in the face at a friend and ally… and it is a gift to Russia coming at a time when we just have learned of its support for the Taliban and reports of bounties on killing American troops.” Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said "champagne must be flowing freely this evening at the Kremlin."

    5 - And there is now news of another Russian attack on the U.S.: yesterday U.S. officials said that two people from Russia’s military intelligence service, the GRU, are behind an effort to spread disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic.

    Last night's letter contained an interesting tidbit:

    This afternoon, we learned that in December 2019, Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, received a package of “information” about Joe Biden from Andrii Derkach, a Ukrainian lawmaker linked to Putin. Derkach claims to have sent packages to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC), as well as former White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, but it appears there is actually a shipping receipt for the package to Nunes.

    And people here say that this is an normal country? No of course there is no Russian meddling in our ElectionAstonished. We are the laughing stock of the world right now and no one on this "island" cares. Nunes is just the "water" boy for the Trump "gang".

    I just wonder when everything here "collapses" under its own incompetent weight.

    The GOP is now attacking "reporters" who don't sing their tune or have "info" which the Trumpers don't like. The Trump clonies want to stop such; it is just like Hitler did; "journalists" should only sing Trump's tune, which is exactly as in any country which are run by "dictators". Sorry people, indeed as I've said many times, that is Trump's objective to be an dictator without any rules or laws. All the news about him has to be "charming" and "lovely" otherwise "jail"

    Heather's letter from last night was filled with LOTS of news. Here are some highlights:

    1 - Calling for a bipartisan and nonpartisan commission to oversee the election, Coats said, “We must firmly, unambiguously reassure all Americans that their vote will be counted, that it will matter, that the people’s will expressed through their votes will not be questioned and will be respected and accepted.” He warned that if instead we accept “Total destruction and sowing salt in the earth of American democracy,” the only winners would be Vladimir Putin, [Chinese leader] Xi Jinping and [Iranian leader] Ali Khamenei.”

    2- Midday, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned the House Homeland Security Committee that “the intelligence community consensus is that Russia continues to try to influence our elections” by spreading disinformation through social media, online journals, and so on. Russians are “very active” in their attempts to undermine Biden’s campaign. They are trying to “sow divisiveness and discord” and “primarily to denigrate Vice President Biden

    3 - Today the administration lost two more employees to the Republican Political Alliance for Integrity and Reform (REPAIR), launched a week ago by former DHS officials Miles Taylor and Elizabeth Neumann.

    4 - Late this afternoon, a federal judge in Washington state temporarily blocked Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s changes in the United States Postal Service in response to complaints from 14 states

    5 - To reassure his base, Trump today announced he will create a national commission to promote "pro-American curriculum that celebrates the truth about our nation's great history."

    6- Tonight Biden participated in a CNN town hall in Pennsylvania with host Anderson Cooper, where he tried both to critique Trump’s administration and to demonstrate why he would be a good replacement for the president. The first difference between the two candidates was apparent immediately: while Trump sat during his town hall, Biden stood for the full hour and fifteen minutes. He was extremely well prepared for the live, unscripted comments from voters. Like the questions for Trump two days ago, the questions Biden fielded were pretty obvious ones.

    Heather's letter from last night covered several topics.

    Trump's taxes.

    Amy Coney Barrett.

    Brad Parscale.

    It's the last subject that got my attention.

    This evening, news broke that Trump’s former campaign manager, Brad Parscale, has been hospitalized after threatening suicide. While most commentators simply noted the story and warned against making this particular personal story political, Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said: “Brad Parscale is a member of our family and we all love him. We are ready to support him and his family in any way possible. The disgusting, personal attacks from Democrats and disgruntled RINOs have gone too far, and they should be ashamed of themselves for what they've done to this man and his family.” There is no evidence linking Democrats or anyone else to this incident.

    I see a trend here.

    Two former managers of Deutsch Bank who were involved with loans for Trump committed suicide. The same thing also happened to Jeff Epstein.

    That is what you get if the dumb asses here elect an "mafia" maniac. All the people around him who still have an tiny bit of brains are going bonkers. the already brain dead once's they stick around. In the meantime the population gets bombarded by all the B.S. spewed everyday by Trump himself and the media. Also the same applies that the indoctrinated "cult" loves it, but it drives the "normal" people here nuts.

    We are descending deeper into the rabbit hole.

    http://www.dictionary.com/e/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/rabbit-hole.jpg

    Heather sums up how things are getting crazier by the day.

    On October 8, 2020, the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, appears to be melting down. Over the course of the day, he has called for the imprisonment of his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, as well as his own predecessor, President Barack Obama, and called Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “monster” and a “communist.”

    Of his bout with coronavirus, he said: “I’m back because I’m a perfect physical specimen and I’m extremely young.”

    He is erratic enough that tomorrow, the House will begin to consider a bill seeking to enforce the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, designed to provide an exit ramp for a president who is experiencing physical or mental impairments that make him unable to lead the nation. The bill, advanced by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, will not pass, but it will keep focus on what seems to be the president’s precarious mental state.

    Everything emerging from the White House today is murky and confused, but there is one event that is crystal clear: the FBI announced today it has stopped a terrorist plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and put her “on trial” for treason. Six men have been charged in the plot, and are now facing life in prison if convicted. Another seven have been charged with planning to storm the state capitol building and start a civil war. They face up to 20 years in prison.

    In April, after Whitmer shut down the state to combat coronavirus, Trump tweeted: “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!” and at least three of the thirteen men now charged were among those who entered the state’s senate chamber with guns on April 30 to protest Whitmer’s stay-at-home orders.

    Tonight, rather than express sympathy with Whitmer or denounce the terrorists, Trump attacked Whitmer on Twitter.

    The Fix provided more details on this nuttiness.

    But perhaps nothing in yesterday's FOX interview reflected his precarious position quite like what he said about some of his most loyal allies. And the theme of each was the same: These people aren’t doing enough to further his political goals by linking his prominent foes to crimes.

    Less than 12 hours earlier, Trump’s loyal vice president, Mike Pence, won plaudits from conservatives for his debate performance against Harris. But Trump hijacked the debate news with an interview that included targeting arguably his two most loyal Cabinet members — Attorney General William P. Barr and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo — along with FBI Director Christopher A. Wray.

    Trump built upon tweets this week suggesting Barr needs to start indicting people tied to the Russia investigation, while explicitly citing President Barack Obama and Biden.

    “Unless Bill Barr indicts these people for crimes — the greatest political crime in the history of our country — then we’re going to get little satisfaction, unless I win,” Trump said, adding that he “won’t forget it” and that the crime “includes Obama, and that includes Biden.”

    But Obama and Biden weren’t the only ones Trump implicated in crimes and suggested he wanted his Cabinet officials to target. He also expressed rare dissatisfaction with Pompeo, who he said should release some sort of new information on Hillary Clinton’s emails.

    Trump also reserved some of his harshest words to date for Wray, who has recently contradicted Trump’s baseless claims about massive mail-in voter fraud. Trump declined to say whether he would fire Wray.

    “He’s been disappointing,” Trump said. “He talks about even the voting thing, that he doesn’t see the voting ballots as a problem,” he added before stating a baseless claim about voter fraud.

    The 2016 election, it bears emphasizing, arguably turned on a late announcement from then-FBI Director James B. Comey about newly discovered Clinton emails. Trump is basically asking for the exact same thing from Pompeo — and publicly so. But it seems he would settle for something supposedly incriminating involving Obama and Biden, too.

    Yes that sums it up. As I've written many times the Titanic is sinking fast. Due to an "lawless" country. Of course they claim they have laws but I call it "loophole laws" since we have a zillion lawyers to clean your slate. An typical thing is an kid of 17 can shoot 2 and an half people and gets rewarded with 200K and an postponed trial. But yeah also you can go to the street with huge guns and enter any government building ; pictures enough about that. Pleny of "militia's" because the second Amendment says the "militia" can carry guns ( only single shot muskets, the way I read it) but the lawyers read between the lines that you can carry anything what shoots, I guess. Anyway it looks like the whole country here has lost its mind and brains. Now Pelosi wants to apply the 25th Amendment, it gets even more crazy, because she says we just "try" this because we won't get enough votes to apply it. So what good are these outdated Amendments?

    Again it shows how un-governable this country has become, because of our incomplete "bodged laws" by a zillion lawyers and know it all's. Chaos is the name of the game. Yes this ship is sinking fast.

    Wow! Heather had LOTS of facts last night>

    1) After Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert and, theoretically anyway, an adviser to the White House, was quoted on CBS’s 60 Minutes last night criticizing the administration’s response to coronavirus, Trump attacked him this morning in a conference call with staff to which reporters had been invited.

    2) Trump’s anger at Fauci seems to be part of his general anger these days, seemingly sparked by the polls that show him trailing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. He is using his rallies both to express his grievances and to boast of his own power. Today, in Prescott, he boasted “I call the head of Exxon. I’ll use a company. ‘How, how are you doing, how’s energy coming? When are doing the exploration? Oh, you need a couple of permits, huh?’ But I call the head of Exxon, I say, ‘you know, I’d love you to send me $25m for the campaign.’” This sort of a bribe—the official term is quid pro quo—is illegal. Exxon promptly clarified: “We are aware of the President’s statement regarding a hypothetical call with our CEO… and just so we’re all clear, it never happened.”

    3) Trump and pro-Trump media outlets are frustrated that the story Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani passed to the tabloid newspaper the New York Post is not getting the traction they want. Today more than 50 former senior intelligence officers signed a letter to that effect, warning that Russia was, once again, interfering in our elections. The news broke today that Fox News Channel executives passed on the Biden story, thinking it was not credible.​

    4) Also today, the Department of Justice indicted 6 Russian military intelligence officers for computer hacks around the world that cost billions of dollars and disrupted a number of different societies.

    5) Thursday night is the final presidential debate, and the Trump campaign spent the day wrangling over its terms. The non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates negotiated with the campaigns months ago to establish that the topics for each debate would be determined by the debate’s moderator. Last week, NBC News White House correspondent Kristin Welker, who will moderate the Thursday event—an arrangement to which Trump agreed—announced her topics, including the coronavirus, race, leadership, national security, and climate change. The Trump campaign promptly accused the commission of breaking a promise to focus on foreign affairs, an accusation the commission rejected, reminding the campaign of the terms to which they had agreed.

    6) Finally, tonight the Supreme Court denied a request from the Pennsylvania Republican Party to stop the counting of mail-in ballots that arrive up to three days after Election Day. This is a win for wider voting in a swing state that often plays a key role in the Electoral College, and it appears that the Pennsylvania Republican Party thinks enabling more people to vote will hurt them.

    Last night's letter contained more facts about the election - and how the Republicans plan to cheat.

    However, here is my favorite paragraph:

    And after all these stories from the past, a story from the future: today Madame Tussauds waxwork museum in Berlin threw its statue of Trump into a dumpster in preparation for a new president.

    See the source image

    Indeed not the statue but him self should be in the dumpster in reality. All the garbage which comes out his mouth and his ass is more than enough to fill 1000 dumpsters. I've never seen any politician who can lie and cheat as he does, but the terrible stupid people like to elect such garbage which is for 400 million dollars in debt. Where are the "brains" here? I guess in the same garbage dumb with an golden toilet as Trump sits on. Don't let me laugh about this country; you deserve him.
