Happy Monday, Wonketariat! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today.

Trump’s campaign committee was paying for Little Donnie’s lawyer weeks before he tweeted out his emails. Looks like SOMEBODY forgot all about those obnoxious FEC filings!

Jay Sekulow made a complete ass out of himself on TV (again) as Trump and Co. try to defend Little Donnie and his one and only meeting with a room full of Russians.

Trump lawyer/grifter Jay Sekulow tried to drag the Secret Service into the mess only to be reminded that Little Donnie didn’t have Secret Service protection at the time of the meeting.

The Senate will delay the vote on McConnellCare while Sen. John McCain recovers from surgery, and many Republicans in the Senate are quietly voicing their concerns.

The CBO score on TrumpCare/McConnellCare will not come out today, but as the bill is worse than hot trash, the CBO score isn’t expected to affect the outcome that much.

TrumpCare/McConnellCare would give Alaska $1.8 billion in kickbacks in order to secure the vote of Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who is semiregularly not a terrible person and shouldn’t be one now.

Tom Price went on teevee to tell insurance companies that “all they have to do is dust off how they did business before Obamacare.” Pretty sure that the playbook for denying coverage to the elderly, sick, and dying is gathering “dust” for a reason, but I’m not an expert.

The Senate Judiciary Committee rammed through the nomination of John K. Bush to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and he now faces a full Senate vote. Bush is famous for being a gay hatin racist who hid behind his blog so he could safely trash people anonymously.

In their ceaseless attempts to divert attention from important issues, Trump’s White House announced three new theme weeks that everyone will more than likely ignore except to laugh at Trump calling something “Made In America” week.

Betsy DeVos is going to take a more hands-off approach to the Dept. of Ed’s Office for Civil Rights, so that the OCR remains “neutral” despite the resurgence of racism, sexism, and anti-semitisim. What could go wrong?

Republicans are wishy-washy on their $1 trillion spending bills so GOP leadership is offering kickbacks and hand jobs in an effort to get to 50 votes.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai thinks your defense of net neutrality is useless because he is beholden to a high corporate-controlled power, not the will of the people.

Jeff Sessions’s statements on sanctuary cities is bullshit.

Trump is lagging in the appointments of key positions compared to Obama, and I think we’re all OK with that. The less they do, the easier it is to clean up the mess.

Disapproval ratings for Trump are up 17 and 18 points, respectively, according to two new polls that show his disapproval rating at 56 percent. LOLOLOLOL.

The fate of Prince Kushner’s security clearance rests in Trump’s tiny hands, so you can stop worrying about who he ALLEGEDLY colluded with during the election.

Somebody broke into Nevada Republican Sen. Dan Heller’s Las Vegas office last night, but it’s not exactly clear what, if anything, was stolen. Weird!

Trump’s White House is taking a huge dump on Jeff Flake for jumping off the Trump train, and they’re already talking to potential primary opponents.

The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity published the names, phone numbers and email addresses of citizen comments and Mike Pence, who is leading the F-Troop, thinks there’s nothing wrong with doxxing private citizens who make public comments.

The federal Job Corps program is under scrutiny for not being able to protect students and some Republicans are bucking calls to fix the program that helps young people avoid gangs by training them for good gigs.

Qatari government websites were hacked by someone inside the United Arab Emirates back in May, which makes the whole scandal between the Middle East’s super-rich oil economies even more ridiculous.

The battle of bullshit on the Internet is being fought a little differently in Germany as Facebook faces steep fines by the government for its failure to stop fake news.

Prince Kushner has “You’re Fired” Jamie Gorelick, or the other way around, from Trump-Russia stuff because reasons.

John McCain’s surgery may actually be for something worse than just a simple blood clot. The rumor mill runs the full spectrum, from a stroke during the Comey hearings, to cancer, but we just want him to rest up and get back into the fight.

Ann Coulter started mean-tweeting Delta airlines employees and passengers after the airline moved her seat, but not only did Delta call out her bullshit, it pointed out the financial value of her pettiness was only $30.

Trump went to the US Women’s Open to brag about his stupid golf course and continue his never-ending series of ethics violations.

And here’s your morning Nice Time! It’s Fiona!

Freedom isn’t free, but ‘Yr Wonkette is! Throw us some Ameros so things stay that way!

            Not the cake we like.

          • CafeenMan

            Of course. How do you expect cake to survive in the wild if it can’t defend itself or hunt and eat prey?

            The problem is the tree-huggers who refuse to de-fang their domesticated cakes because it’s “cruel”.

            But they totally ignore the savage nature of the cake and expect to be able to take their cake anywhere and nothing bad will happen.

            Unfortunately, nobody can take their cakes away because of the stupid Second Amendment.

            I can’t. My cake is at the baker getting her shots. There is no one to protect me if I get too far away from the internet.

            But I’ll step away when she gets back if she seems rested enough to have my back should anything happen.

          • grindstone

            Well good luck. I don’t want to scare you, but my neighbor’s sister’s lawn guy took her cake to the baker for “shots” and the cake came back with a piece missing. Never was the same. And she couldn’t sue because Obamacare.

          • jodyleek

            Uh, why are there red worms in it? What are those beige chunks? If this is cake, I’m giving up cake.

          • Antonin Dvorak

            The worms are chocolate sauce that has been drizzled across it. The chunks appear to be some sort of cookie pieces.

    Pence thinking it’s ok to dox people underlines at least two (probably seventy-five if we study it closely enough) fundamental flaw of right wingers. They don’t know right from wrong. They don’t understand what empathy is, much less practice it.

    • OutOfOrbit

      The conservative brain equates empathy/sympathy with weakness.

    • bupkus231

      Sure don’t know that lying is “wrong”:

      Link: http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/its-not-just-the-russia-scandal-pence-lies-about-health-care-too

      Fuckin’ Pence – all the qualities of Rump, just not the crunchy goodness

      • CafeenMan

        Definitely not. I wasn’t trying to list all of the many things that are broken in right wingers – only the things that cause Pence to think like he does about doxxing.

        But yeah, for people who pretend to be Christians, they must believe that their god was just kidding when he specifically commanded them not to bear false witness.

        I don’t consider it to be a lie if a person says something that’s not true but they believe what they’re saying. In that case they’re just wrong. But it’s still bearing false witness regardless of their intent.

        And like you said, they very deliberately lie all the time. It’s almost as if they know they’re wrong and lie so they don’t have to admit it.

        It’s why the GOP gives all their bills names that are the exact opposite of the content.

        Think, “Clean Air Act”, “Patriot Act” and whatever the name of their latest “healthcare” bill is.

        • bupkus231

          “…when he specifically commanded them not to bear false witness.”

          I remember having someone ( not necessarily a fundie ) claim that that only applied when you were lying about your neighbor – lying about statistics and things did not qualify. Also, too, there’s that “repent and be forgiven” thing…

          “..I don’t consider it to be a lie if a person says something that’s not true but they believe what they’re saying.”

          George Costanza, zat you? As it is, holding false beliefs is also somewhat of a sin, isn’t it? That’s why they say, in law, that “Ignorance is no excuse”.

          These assholes need to be held accountable – they’ve so far avoided accountability in so many dodgy ways, they have no idea what that actually means

          • CafeenMan

            “George Costanza, zat you? As it is, holding false beliefs is also somewhat of a sin, isn’t it?”

            I don’t know about that but perhaps. I’m no bible expert.

            The thing is we all believe some things that aren’t true. Those beliefs don’t make us liars. They make us ignorant of the truth about that particular thing.

            I got into an argument with someone several years ago when I stated that Forrest Whitaker was the good guy lieutenant in Platoon.

            He kept saying, “Ummm… I don’t think so. Isn’t he a black guy?”

            I said no, he’s was the lieutenant with the messed up face that Tom Berenger shot.

            I googled it later and figured out I was wrong. But I wasn’t lying. I was just wrong.

            =====================

            I hope they are held accountable. But the GOP always manages to turn it into something making it difficult to do anything. They go on and on about how it’s being “politicized” or something.

            And the media again treats it like it’s an actual controversy and that the GOP has a valid point of view.

      • cmd resistor

        I saw a clip of Pence this morning, I think talking about healthcare. He sounded like a pretty dull preacher whose voice would put one to sleep in church.

    • Snark Tank Full of Resistance

      I’m probably going to be in the minority on this issue, but frankly, I don’t consider the PACEI thing to be doxxing. When you provide a comment to the Federal Government, you shouldn’t have any expectation of privacy unless that privacy is explicitly stated in the process. The PACEI solicited comments (without claiming anonymity), people responded. I agree that phone numbers probably shouldn’t have been even asked for, but names and email addresses, IMO, are fair game to be revealed if you comment.

      • CafeenMan

        I disagree but I understand your point.

        I think an established, but unwritten rule, is that when you send an email to someone they should not publish any contact information from you unless they have an accessible policy stating they will or they ask permission.

        I have my own website and would never dox anyone. I get tons of email asking questions and some of them go on my FAQ pages.

        • Snark Tank Full of Resistance

          Understood, but you aren’t the Feds (I hope!). I have an expectation of privacy when emailing a private individual, or even a corporation, but a comment to the Government is, by design, public information.

          • CafeenMan

            You could be right but I think a majority of people would not expect their information to be published even if they’re wrong in that assumption and wrong in their logic.

            If enough reasonable people believe something then that something should probably be the way it works by default.

            In all cases there should be something that specifically states circumstances under which your identifying information will be available to anyone else.

          • Rags

            There is a reasonable expectation of privacy that would probably protect these addresses under the 4th amendment but I don’t know if it’s been tested for circumstances like this.

    • MrTusks

      Their philosophy is 100% projection. Why are they so concerned with welfare fraud? Because they’d certainly do it if given the chance. Voter fraud? Because they’re definitely doing it ALL THE TIME and want to stay ahead of the curve. Their policies are designed to inhibit crimes that would inhibit their own.

  • Pierre_de_Fermat

    • bupkus231

      Kinda sounds like this may be the plan – now that doctors are saying McCain may be out longer than McConnell and Cornyn first claimed….

      • Pierre_de_Fermat

        The House has cast its vote, so everyone there is on record. The Senate has not, but most of the GOP “moderates” are not saying anything:
        http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/senate-moderates-mcconnell-obamacare-medicaid

        For self-preservation, the Senate GOP should do everything it can to avoid that vote. However, being the GOP, they will probably march in lock-step over the cliff …

        An interesting observation …

        If Trump's at 36% approve/58% disapprove, with 32% approval among independents, GOP won't hold the House.https://t.co/YcdMtI8cpf— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) July 16, 2017

          • Pierre_de_Fermat

            Yeah, I can see that. At the same time, it is also difficult to see them doing something that is so opposed, and opposed by many of their own constituents. Their best solution is to make every effort, fail, and then blame Obama or Hillary or Democrats and claim they misrepresented what was a great plan.

    BERLIN, June 26, 1933:

    I am dictating [this letter] under pressure as I wish to catch the courier pouch.

    What I do want to say really is that for the present this country is headed in directions which can only carry ruin to it and will create a situation here dangerous to world peace.

    With few exceptions, the men who are running this Government are of a mentality that you and I cannot understand. Some of them are psychopathic cases and would ordinarily be receiving treatment somewhere. Others are exalted and in a frame of mind that knows no reason. The majority are woefully ignorant and unprepared for the tasks which they have to carry through every day.

    Those men in the party and in responsible positions who are really worth-while, and there are quite a number of these, are powerless because they have to follow the orders of superiors who are suffering from the abnormal psychology prevailing in the country. It is impossible for us to talk about tariffs or monetary policy or any of these major matters with a Germany whose leaders do not think in any sense along the lines that we do.

    While their representatives are talking at London and seem to be just like everybody else, the most phantastic experiments on financial or economic lines are being definitely considered in their home country. Dr. Luther may talk bravely and fairly about Germany in the United States, but he can’t tell what he knows, and even if he would, there is a great deal that he does not know. There is a real revolution here and a dangerous situation.

    – GEORGE S. MESSERSMITH, Consul General at Berlin,
    addressed to Mr. Phillips, the Under Secretary of State

  • Let’s get real here peoples! Donald J Trump is a smart man, maybe even the most tremendously smart of all times man whose gone bankrupt a lot and still lost the popular vote. He will find a way to kill all the Mooslins trying to kill all the
    America by building a wall what Mexico will give us the money to build
    of course. When they don’t give us money, he will start a campaign or a
    movement or better yet, he could call it a crusade against Muslininety!
    He could have his factories in the China or the Viet Nam switch over
    from making his yugely great and popular Trump ties and hankies to
    making snappy crusader uniforms with red crosses fancy hats. He’s
    already working on prototypes and openly secretly testing a version of
    the original with a long red tie as you read this.

    He is, also too, cleverly incorporating Russia, which sounds like
    Prussia because they know how to host a tremendous crusade. Nobody is
    talking about it, but that’s why DJTJR meet with the pretty Russian lady

      Gore Camp Recipient Of A Hot Potato

      September 14, 2000

      WASHINGTON — A confidant of Al Gore received an unsolicited package Wednesday containing documents and a videotape that appeared to involve rival George W. Bush’s debate preparations, an aide to Gore said.

      Tom Downey, a former congressman who has been helping the vice president prepare for debates against Bush, turned the material over to his lawyer. The lawyer planned to give the package to the FBI to determine whether the documents and tape were “illegally obtained from the Bush campaign,” said Gore spokesman Mark Fabiani.

      “We got something we shouldn’t have and turned it over to the authorities,” said Marc Miller, Downey’s lawyer.

My left arm was broken again and my ribs were cracked,” he said according to U.S. News. The North Vietnamese wanted a confession for crimes committed against the North Vietnamese people. After holding out for four days, McCain, at the point of suicide, agreed to write a confession. Looking back on his decision, McCain reflected “I felt just terrible about it… Every man has his breaking point. I had reached mine,” he said, according to the report…McCain notes that toward the end of 1969, the treatment which he and his fellow POWs received became more tolerable. He reports of torture ended around October of 1969 and his solitary confinement concluded in March 1970. “Aside from bad situations now and then, 1971 and 1972 was a sort of coasting period…”Though he made a recovery, many of McCain’s injuries have remained with him -– the combination of a hazardous ejection from his jet, torture and inadequate medical treatment have left him incapable of raising either arm above his shoulders.’

          I, for one, think that the 35% will gladly give up their Medicaid in exchange for the joy of seeing a boot on the necks of minorities, immigrants, and gays. And tax cuts for the wealthy, obvs.

          • BigCSouthside

            Bingo. These types of people have existed since this country was founded. Dumb as fuck white folks that are easily manipulated into believing they are inherently better than anyone different from them, even though they have been and always will be human trash and drains on society. If you convince a dumb fuck white trash son of a bitch he’s better than a Mexican, you can rob them blind. And they’ll go fight wars for you and stuff.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Ha! We seem to have a similar take on this one, yeah?

          • BigCSouthside

            Yep. These people have voted against their interests since voting became a thing. That shit won’t change

          • Blackest Noobs

            but that tax cut does nothing for the most of them….it’s like why so stupid?

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            If I could explain that, I wouldn’t be working 60 hours a week and going nowhere in life.

          • BigCSouthside

            Ive always told republicans I know that if you don’t have 8 figures in assets, you have no compelling logical reason to ever vote republican.

            For them the most important issues are the “cultural” issues.

          • Blackest Noobs

            which yet another issue they will eventually lose….like gay marriage….it was dumb to be against it when being for it could have created so many future gains.

          • Tokays_don’t_blink

            They believe mightily in the lie of the trickle-down. Work your 2-3 jobs just a little bit harder, and you’ll be a millionaire aaaany day now. Provided, of course, that those entitlements and handouts for the takers stop sponging up your hard-earned cash. And now my head hurts.

        • BigCSouthside

          A lot of their seats will be protected through gerrymandering. I don’t anticipate a true blue wave.

          Also, healthcare I predict will have little impact on trump supporters. These are the true believers here.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Bingo. Remember, these are people who haven’t voted for their own interests for 30 years now. “I’m a drug addict on food stamps, but goddamn it, that Planned Parenthood has to go!”

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            I just read an article in the Atlantic about the opioid epidemic in a W. Virginia town. These are people who literally see their friends, neighbors, children etc. die on sidewalks and cars every fucking day, yet believe any kind of treatment, intervention, or use of Narcan to save lives is “coddling” users. And yep, Trump voters every fucking one of ’em.

          • BigCSouthside

            I’m for letting these areas rot at this point. We tried very hard to reach out to them. Hillary had a robust plan to help them for generations and they slapped our hands away. Fuck them.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            I say the same all the time, even though I feel bad about it because I don’t want to become that kind of person. But really, what’s the fucking solution? How do you help these people? And for me, it is in such stark contrast to the Mexican immigrant community I’m surrounded with here…resourceful, enterprising, willing to work themselves nearly to death to gain a foothold. And tacos! They make sure you don’t have to go more than a block or so without being able to get good street tacos.

          • Rags

            It’s not the true believers who need to flip. It’s the ‘independents’ and the bernie/jill bros.

          • Blackest Noobs

            sure but imagined if those gerrymandered area plenty of piping mad Republicans voters….they might, though not likely, vote for something else or not vote at all.

            Dems need to capitalize on this….and one way to do so…is fight fire with fire…use Repub tactics….like something simple as everyone on the same page, same message…..

          • Antonin Dvorak

            There is enough to flip the house though. Out of the 24 needed, 23 voted for Hillary. And if we are as competitive then as we are now in the specials, it is not an impossibility we get there.

    Ms. Coulter also seems to be a bit racist and also body shamed the woman who Delta gave her precious seat to.

    This little tweet:
    So why is our middle & working class suffering? NOT ROBOTS! Globalism & mass immigration. Immigrants take American jobs (& seats on @Delta)

    And this lovely tweet.
    Hey @Delta, if it was so important for the dachshund-legged woman to take my seat, she should have BOOKED THE SEAT IN ADVANCE. Like I did.

    Essentially, yes. I don’t think that Putin in his wildest dreams thought that the American people would actually inflict this upon themselves, which is ultimately what happened. These are American voters who put Trump in office, not Russian ones.

    • eyelashviper

      All of Em, Katie….
      Since 2000, electronic voting devices have put Gopers in power, on every level, and still NOTHING is done about it. When final election tallies differ from exit polls, some by large amounts, we know that something is rotten at election headquarters.

    • Longstreet63

      Funny when you consider that the entire purpose of the electoral college is to keep someone like Trump from being elected by allowing cooler heads to override the will of the voters. Because the Founders could see this coming.

    Why this asshole Sekulow continues to practice with such unethical standards by the Bar association is beyond me. I don’t think this cocksucker wants to defend Trump as much as he wants to push his rhetoric for his own show on Fox.

  • Carpe Vagenda

    Here’s the thing I’m asking myself about Sekulow, though.

    “Donald Trump, Jr. was not a protectee of the USSS in June, 2016. Thus we would not have screened anyone he was meeting with at that time,” Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman said in a statement to Reuters.

    But _they didn’t exactly say that the russians weren’t screened_ like Sekulow said they were. They declined to say that.

    They did say the russians weren’t screened for a meeting with Jr because Jr wasn’t under SS protection at that time. AFAIK, only one person who was in the building at that time was.

    So, if there was some SS involvement the way Sekulow said there was, maybe either there was a control freak micromanager in that room we weren’t told about, or Trump skipped the meeting because the SS said no?

    in Texas news*:

    after a series of announcements to announce announcing announcements, Gov. Wheels finally said that, yes, he’s running for a second term. SHOCKING! REVELATION! but what was fun about it was that at the announcement in San Antonio, this happened:

    http://ww1.hdnux.com/photos/62/43/45/13252972/7/920×920.jpg
    here’s the story: http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/article/Greg-Abbott-trolled-with-epic-photo-by-San-11292703.php

    also too, for all of you who thought Speaker Straus only opposed the bathroom bill because the business community told him it was bad (because those of you who said that want all Republicans to be disgusting turds for…reasons?) really should have read that New Yorker article that detailed the fight between conservatives and fascists going on the TX lege because it’s going to be increasingly important going forward as it has now hit the national level. the reason I bring this article up is because it was where Straus said of the bathroom bill, “I’m disgusted by all this. Tell the lieutenant governor I don’t want the suicide of a single Texan on my hands.”

    As has been opined here often, McCain will voice his “concern” about Trumpcare and then at the last minute vote for repeal. Accordingly, so long as he is in the hospital, it would seem certain Turtle does not have enough Senators to ram Trumpcare through. Therefore I, for one — albeit lovingly and with votes — hope he stays in the hospital for the rest of his term.
