The thing that kills me about these clips is how obviously manipulative and clearly partisan they are, but the problem is that to people sitting in their living rooms watching their favorite local news outlet that fact might not be all that clear.

Boris Epshteyn is a really clumsy and inarticulate commentator, but he gains reflected credibility by broadcasting out of local outlets which have built up decades of consumer trust.

And that is bad for the country in so many ways.

    OT? TRUTH “The benefits are in wars not fought, lives not squandered.” “This is the story of the world we know, and the story of our country, too. This is the accomplishment now under threat.”
    “The first belief: certain moral values are universal, and liberal democracies best reflect and cultivate those values.
    The second: in international affairs, anarchy reigns. Power is the only COIN that matters.”
    “wars were bloodier for only one reason: a massive improvement in killing capability. What would the next iteration of this war look like considering the technology we’ve got now?”
    “n 1964, Paul Hoffmann, who led the implementation of the Marshall Plan, put this plainly: “Those of us involved in the actual administration of the Marshall Program had very much in our minds the building of a new Europe.
    “How is it, then, that suddenly, we’ve become consumed with rage that Europe is “taking advantage” of us? How have we forgotten that this is the point of the system? We designed it this way, and did so for overwhelmingly obvious historic reasons learned at incalculable cost.” ” They imagined these events, like the Crucifixion, would become a permanent part of human memory.

    They were wrong. We’re now cheerfully pissing away the greatest achievement of American history, the work of generations, achieved at incalculable cost in life and treasure: a free, united, secure, and prosperous Western world.
    The 20th century has been forgotten. No one learned a thing from it.”

      FB>”E Pluribus Unum – the original motto of the United States meaning “from many, one.” Oh how quaint that may seem today when the President of the United States seeks to sow disunity for his own narrow political and likely financial gain. And this sea of discord is not only swamping our cities, towns and countryside, but it is sweeping over the world, fueled by winds blowing out of Washington.
      From the earliest days of this nation’s history, there was a notion that parochial interests had to be traded for a larger, common good. This is how 13 distinct colonies formed a union. But it also speaks to the larger aspirations that have been so imperfectly realized since our founding documents: the notion that diverse peoples, across a wide and expansive landscape, can come together to forge the bonds of common citizenship and form a “more perfect union”. This was the banner under which Abraham Lincoln argued for the abolition of slavery and where immigrant communities were eventually largely (and again, imperfectly) welcomed into the American family, as well as other marginalized groups.
      In the 20th century, this mindset of binding together for the common good, even at the cost of possible short-term sacrifice for individuals and nations, was a mainstay of a world order in which the United States played the role of imperfect leader, but leader nonetheless. We saw it in the Marshall plan, trade deals, NATO, other alliances, and in a host of global governmental and nongovernmental actions.
      This is what it means to be a member of a community, whether it’s your neighborhood or our fragile Earth. But clearly this is not how President Trump and his acolytes see things. Friendships are for fools if they don’t help your bottom line. The value of your word is transactional and easily written off as a cost of business. And empathy just makes you weaker.
      I reject this cynicism, and I suggest so do most Americans. There’s a reason why the documentary on Mr. Rogers is striking such a chord (and while I don’t have data, I would assume audiences are bipartisan). In the end the correct answer to “Won’t you be my neighbor?” should be yes.”<Dan the Man Rather

    Trump was like a “predator” toward teens at parties in ’80s and ’90s, says BBC report

    …Trump, in particular, was “notorious” for his behavior toward younger women, the man said.

    “This guy was like a predator in action. The next day or days after we would hear about it, he would brag about it to his friends and it would get around that he scored. Maybe one or two girls at a time, which is what he loved to do.”

    FYI”Trump Pardons Ranchers Whose Arrests Sparked Oregon Bundy Occupation>
    President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he had fully pardoned Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., and his son, Steven Hammond, the pair of cattle ranchers whose prosecution by the federal government sparked a weeks-long militant takeover of an Oregon wildlife refuge headquarters in 2016. “The Hammonds are devoted family men, respected contributors to their local community, and have widespread support from their neighbors, local law enforcement, and farmers and ranchers across the West,” Trump wrote in the pardon. “Justice is overdue for Dwight and Steven Hammond, both of whom are entirely deserving of these Grants of Executive Clemency.” The Hammonds were originally prosecuted for arson in 2012, after controlled brush fires on their property in 2001 and 2006 spread to federal land, reports OregonLive. After they served minor sentences, they were each re-sentenced to five years in prison with time served in 2015, because of the mandatory minimum for their crime. Their case attracted the attention of the right-wing Bundy family, who in 2016 brought armed militants to occupy the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge headquarters—despite the fact that the Hammonds rejected their offer for assistance. The Bundys’ occupation lasted from January 2nd to February 11th of 2016; weeks later, 26 militants were indicted on federal charges of conspiracy.”<the Daily Beast

      ““Lot of issues where Democrats can win elections, but they’re not going to win it on this one,” he predicted. “They’re just going to remind conservatives and independent voters that maybe the Democrats are too far to the left for their taste and it’s actually going to help Donald Trump in the election.”

      It was not immediately clear from Stephens’ remarks if he considered Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “petty” for blocking Garland’s nomination.”

        “What’s at Stake? LGBTQ Rights, Roe v. Wade, Health Care”; “Stop Trump’s Supreme Court Takeover”; “I Stand With Planned Parenthood.” And though the nomination wasn’t yet an hour old, “Stop Kavanaugh” signs also flourished.

        There is little reason to expect such passion to subside anytime soon. In fact, Democrats both on and off Capitol Hill have been plotting a multipronged strategy to accomplish what most experts have said would be impossible for a minority party in a post-filibuster age. They hope to #StopKavanaugh, as one of the movement’s newly minted hashtags would have it — and #SaveSCOTUS from shifting decisively rightward for a generation or more in the process.

        “I think this will be an enormous fight, and it should be,” “Shapiro, author of The Last Great Senate, said he was skeptical about any “procedural obstruction” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, might attempt. “I think that Sen. McConnell would change every rule of the Senate if necessary to ensure that the nomination is voted upon,” Shapiro said, referring to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. “Ultimately, the only way to defeat this nomination is by making the most comprehensive case about the constitutional rights that are at stake and the future of the court for the next 30 years.””
        “a Yahoo News reporter encountered Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, who was in the midst of having his photograph taken. Asked about Kavanaugh’s chances for confirmation, Graham answered quickly, and confidently: “One hundred percent.”” 100%! OK
