Quote of note:

"The displays are tapping into Trump’s main message on the coronavirus pandemic: governors are to blame for the crisis, not him. As the president ratchets up his reelection efforts, his argument is an effort to simultaneously put the brunt of responsibility for the coronavirus catastrophe on the shoulders of his political opponents while also maintaining that he holds 'total authority' over the pandemic and the states facing it."

"It’s also an argument that resonates best in rural, redder parts of the country, which have not been hit as hard by the pandemic as blue, urban areas. Trump himself has said, 'We’ll be opening some states much sooner than others', despite pushback from legislators and business leaders alike about the current lack of mass testing."

"And it’s a message of division, designed to pit Republican-voting areas of states against their Democratic-voting neighbors, even rural Republicans against urban Republicans. All th... Show more...
 
Quote of note:

"Don’t just blame President Trump. Blame me — and all the other Republicans who aided and abetted and, yes, benefited from protecting a political party that has become dangerous to America. Some of us knew better."

"But we built this moment. And then we looked the other way."

"Many of us heard a warning sound we chose to ignore, like that rattle in your car you hear but figure will go away. Now we’re broken down, with plenty of time to think about what should have been done."

Via Republicans like me built this moment. Then we looked the other way.

Quote of note:

"The US is badly positioned; the federal government isn’t up to the task. When I learned more about this virus my heart sank because I know the Trump administration doesn’t value basic science, it doesn’t understand it and it tends to reject it when it conflicts with its political narrative.”

Via Trump's devaluing of science is a danger to US coronavirus response, experts warn

Impeachment Circus - Today's Bombshell Is Another Dud


#US #Bombshell #politics #international

"The #impeachment #circus continued today with a refreshingly candid opening statement from #Gordon #Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the #EU. Sondland was involved in diplomatic efforts in #Ukraine. Instead of stonewalling Sondland just let it all out:
Gordon D. Sondland testified that Secretary of State Mike #Pompeo signed off on the pressure campaign, and that he told Vice President Mike #Pence about an apparent link between military aid for Ukraine and investigations of #Democrats. Mr. Sondland confirmed there was a “clear quid pro quo” for a White House meeting between President Trump and Ukraine’s president.

Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar arrives in US, accompanied by partner Matt Barrett


“I stand here this morning as leader of my country, flawed and human, but judged on my political actions and mistakes and not on my sexual orientation or my skin tone or my gender or my religious beliefs. I do not believe my country is the only one in the world where my story is possible. It is found in every country where freedom and liberty are cherished. We are, after all, all God’s children.”

I guess that Mr. Pence had a hard time struggling with his disgust emitted by this homosexual couple. I mean, as an arch conservative Christian... He actively promoted the natural family image, as far as I'm concerned.

Noting that 32 million Americans trace their ancestry back to Ireland, Mr Pence said that Irish people’s contribution to American history stretch all the way back to the revolutionary war and long before. “The partnership between our two countries has never been stronger,” he said.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi reclaims her God-given office space


When Paul Ryan was speaker, he gave Vice President Mike Pence an extra office on the first floor of the House side of the U.S. Capitol Building shortly after President Drumpf's inauguration, making him the first Vice President since Dick Cheney to have offices on both sides of the Capitol.

"This is not big deal. Why make it seem that way," disagreed Paul Simpson. "Unfortunately, this is why people say Fake News."

It's not fake news to report about something that actually happened. I would rather call it sensationalist, but hey, so what? It didn't make up the headlines on page one of the New York Times, did it? It's a little sidenote, nothing else. Google News didn't even mention it in its U.S.-chapter, so how would one make such a fuss about it? I just shared it for fun.

"Greetings from Trump". Silence.


“I bring greetings from the 45th President of the United States of America, President Donald Drumpf.” Pence then paused for applause but no one in the room clapped. After what seem like a very long five seconds, Pence continues with his speech.

The vice president was also supposed to introduce House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (and wait for her applause) but he ended up skipping that introduction.

I guess they would have applauded about Ms. Pelosi's introduction, because unlike Donnie, she's a partially reasonable personality in the White House.

On the Munich Security Conference


In one awkward moment Friday, US Vice President Mike Pence said he was bringing greetings from Drumpf, only to be met with stony silence from a room full of national leaders, ministers and generals.

A French government source criticised the Drumpf administration's approach as "we're leaving, you're staying" and added: "They're trying to manage the consequences of a hasty decision and making us carry the responsibility."

US VP compares recently deceased AZ Sen. John McCain to POTUS Donald Trump


In an ambitious attempt to bandage over domestic and geopolitical wounds, Pence continued: “In one moment he [McCain]would speak to you in light terms, always setting you at ease, and in a few moments that would change, as he would tell you how things really needed to be. And I think that’s a distinctly American quality. It's a quality I promise you that we have in the president of the United States today.”

Damn! Now I have a dent on my table and a lump on my forehead.

US VP Mike Pence wants Europe to cease relations to Iran


In our news wrap Thursday, Vice President Pence criticized European allies for staying in the Iran nuclear deal, saying they were intending to break U.S. sanctions against Iran. His remarks came at a conference discussing peace and stability in the Middle East. Also, the Senate confirmed William Barr as attorney general. He previously served in the role under former President George H.W. Bush.

Sadly, some of our leading European partners have not been nearly as cooperative. In fact, they have led the effort to create mechanisms to break up our sanctions. They call this scheme a special purpose vehicle. We call it an effort to break American sanctions against Iran's murderous revolutionary regime.

You never asked anyone if it was fine to sanction Iran, your president just moved ahead and put sanctions on this country, for allegations unproven so far. Trump said that Iran broke with the nuclear treaty, while Iran said that they didn't. It hasn't been investigated until then, and the Eur... Show more...

Vice President Mike Pence calls for putsch on Venezuelan president NIcolas Maduro


"This is no time for dialogue," Pence said at a church in the Doral suburb of Miami, prompting loud cheers among exiles who fled their homeland. "It is time to end the Maduro regime."

"I am here as the face of many mothers who live with the fear that their husbands won't come home. That the father of their kids won't return. That their children live a childhood full of fear and persecution," said Francis Suarez, wife of Ravanguoy, who wore a shirt that said "Make Venezuela Free Again."

More news on #MLK: #Pence exploits MLK to promote border wall


Speaking on Sunday on CBS’ programme Face the Nation, the vice president quoted from Dr King’s “I Have a Dream” speech as he defended Mr Drumpf’s latest pitch to secure funding for a barrier along the United States’ southern border.

“One of my favourite quotes from Dr King was, ‘Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy’,” Mr Pence said.

Can you hear it? It's MLK oscillating in his grave because a white racist is currently abusing his legendary speech, his ideals, for the false intentions. Now I wished that resurrecting people was possible, so that we could wake MLK up and let him have the possibility to slap Pence himself.

#Trump evaluates withdrawal of troops from #Afghanistan


“Why isn’t #Russia there? Why isn’t #India there? Why isn’t #Pakistan there?” Drumpf said in televised comments to reporters during a cabinet meeting on January 2. “Why are we there and we’re 6,000 miles away?”

Many observers have warned that the partial withdrawal could further degrade security and jeopardize possible peace talks with the Taliban aimed at ending its 17-year insurgency.

#Pence and #Schumer responsible to end government shutdown


For years under President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell each maneuvered his party out of repeated political crises. But under President Donald Drumpf, who’s made no concerted effort to establish a genuine rapport with congressional Democrats, there’s no such release valve.

Pence and Schumer (D-N.Y.) approached the shutdown assignment under near-impossible conditions — with Drumpf demanding his border wall money and Democrats just as insistent he not get it. On top of that, the schmoozing Brooklynite and buttoned-up Hoosier lack the relationship that Biden and McConnell had built up over decades working together in the Senate.

On the meeting between Chuck #Schumer, Nancy #Pelosi, Donnie, and Mike #Pence


Drumpf interacted with Schumer and Pelosi — and yes, I am playing political psychiatrist here — more like peers who he wants to have like him for the great guy he thinks he is. Maybe because he sees Pelosi and Schumer as big celebrities.

This would be surprising to me, since he has never got a good word about either one. To think that he sees them as celebrities, and not as his nemeses would be progress. Or maybe, he's just afraid of them because it depends on them and their parties to get the border wall funding in total, and not only the 1.6 bn dollars they offered him.

A troublesome choice to be made for #Trump and the top aide position


That would seem to clear the way for Ayers. But the lag time allowed a month-long lobbying campaign both for and against the 36-year-old Ayers, currently Vice President Mike Pence’s top aide. Ayers' detractors — who consider him nakedly ambitious and untrustworthy — have lobbied Drumpf against following through on the offer. Some top White House aides have even threatened to resign if he does not.

So, there would be a wave of withdrawals if Nick Ayers was chosen Trump's new top aide. So, what is to be made out of this, would Trump risk this exodus? We don't know. We will wait for the first salvo of Tweets concerned about this subject.

#Tensions between #China and the #US as no deal could be agreed to**


But Sunday’s showdown over language in a nonbinding communique, along with dueling speeches delivered by Pence and Xi at #APEC on Saturday, left much skepticism over how the two sides will be able to make progress in talks.

Well, the two mightiest nations among the 21 that have met to this summit are also two nations that care most for themselves alone: China, with its state capitalist leadership, and the US with their protectionist stance on exterior affairs. What did you expect, to be honest?

“#Unilateralism and protectionism will not solve problems but add uncertainty to the world economy,” he said. “History has shown that confrontation, whether in the form of a cold war, a hot war or a trade war, produces no winners.”
