EXCERPT from Thursday’s POLITICRAT:

This clip:

“Just the other day a defeated-looking guy came up to me and asked if I could help. He was drowning in debt. I said, ‘I’m sorry Donald, but I can’t help you.’”

If anyone in the U.S. corporate news media is going to talk about this Orange Dictator, this split-screen is EXACTLY the way the media must do it. Note how Lawrence does this here. It is very effective. THIS is what you do with a pathological LIAR like DT.

US to veto Palestinian request for full UN membership

The U.S. will use its veto power against a Palestinian bid to be recognized as a member state of the United Nations during a vote at the Security Council expected to take place Thursday evening.

Vedant Patel, principal deputy spokesperson for the State Department, described as premature an effort by the Palestinian Authority (PA) to gain member status at the U.N.

He said there was not unanimity among the Security Council’s 15 members that the Palestinian Authority had met the criteria for membership, with unresolved questions over the governance of the Gaza Strip, where Israel is in a war to defeat and eliminate the controlling power, .

Two state solution my ass!

MORE REPUBLICANS QUITTING CONGRESS!

A 36-year-old House Republican who has served in Congress just three years said Thursday he will not seek reelection in November.

Why it matters: Rep. Jake LaTurner's (R-Kan.) retirement is a stark addition to a trend of House members in both parties sprinting for the exits after a year filled with infighting

The experience doesn't just stop at getting held hostage in a flat and begging a pensioner for the ransom money.

No, the drama is even more INTENSE.

"...In 2017, the Mirror reported [Menzies] had been quizzed by police over claims he got a dog drunk in 2015. He denied the allegation to the paper and said that he was cleared by police...."

Probably won’t cover as extensively unless things get interesting, but #Trump’s #criminal #ElectionInterference / #HushMoney trial is back on today w/ continued #jury selection.

A #juror was quickly dismissed at the start. She was among the 7 already selected, she said she was very worried that despite the fact the court ruled to keep jurors’ name secret, she would still be exposed & targeted.

“This case has nothing to do w/your personal , your feelings about a particular issue. It’s not a referendum on the presidency, a popularity contest … or any indication of who you plan to vote for” Steinglass said.
“This case is about whether this man broke the ,” he said, pointing at Trump. He asked one potential juror if he could do that

“I could be objective, no problem,” he replied.
When Steinglass said some witnesses have “baggage,” Trump shook his head.
