Emptywheel has another article on the Steele dossier:

In general, I find Wheeler does careful work, though I do not always agree.

The linked article makes it clear that this Russian uranium deal is much ado about nothing:

Title: "Republicans are freaking out about a new report tying Hillary Clinton to a Russian uranium deal"

You may want to check the ownership of your source. See how many articles they've published that are anti CIA, pro Russian, anti Israel, pro China or anti Ukraine.
Their history, from atop the Berlin wall may surprise you.

Mr. Yadav's take on our current predicament is here.
It is very it.

If anybody would like a view of the structures we've lost from the fires here in the north Bay Area, this is an excellent map.

Fortunately, we haven't had to endure a "presidential" visit and have paper towels thrown at us.

I'm putting this in a separate post because I know there are people on this forum who are convinced that my position on this is just short of "evil". I can't not say it, as I find the success of this line of attack  dangerous and profoundly disturbing.

For a good example of clever and (possibly innocent) wholesale buy-in to the Russian/Assange/HillaryHateTM trolling, if you have the stomach for it, please take a look (over 7,000 "votes" on neutral platform Medium.

The sad thing is that I hear this kind of thing from a range of people who should know better. They're eager to throw out the majority of Democrats now in office, anyone who is a successful fundraiser or makes any kind of compromise to get things done. I am, as I said elsewhere, not overly fond of Hillary, and fully aware of her flaws, but I also took the trouble to read her plans and platform, and they're not at all what haters claim.

About the takeover of US courts, this is a useful article: The Conservative Pipeline to the Supreme Court: With the Federalist Society, Leonard Leo has reared a generation of originalist élites. The selection of Neil Gorsuch is just his latest achievement.

Yes, the income disparity is now worse than it was in the 1920s, and increasing. Please don't think any Democrats are for the earlier cut in the inheritance tax. We think there should be a progressive income tax (Eisenhower level was 91% for the top level, and the economy did very well with the top earners not taking value out of the system). It now exempts any inheritance below $5 million, and they are planning to get rid of that. Obama had a filibuster-proof majority for almost 5 months in 2009 (between seating Franken (lawsuit delay) and Kennedy's illness and death) and even then Obamacare is weak compared to what Democrats wanted, due to continuous manipulation and obstruction. That's what I mean about blaming victims for what Republican perps did.

Yes, the voter suppression is fierce and getting much much worse. It's those local authorities again and Kobach is a monstrous tool of the Koch efforts (as is Pence). I read a documented article yesterday that 45,000 Democrats in Wisconsin were unable to vote last year (Hillary lost by 22,000 in that state) and that is probably low for the statewide figure.

[Please feel free to call me susan, hope we're friends (of sorts) here; it's my real name. I am trying to cut back on internet addiction so don't promise to respond quickly ... just sayin', nothing personal if people don't hear back quickly.]
