01) Obama’s 2020 Endorsement?


“It looks like Obama is a big fan of Elizabeth Warren.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has spent her presidential campaign railing against the donor class, making it known she doesn’t want their help.

She has publicly bashed millionaires, has sworn off high-dollar fundraisers and has refused large checks from Democratic bundlers.

But behind the scenes in recent months, former President Obama has gone to bat for Warren (D-Mass.) when speaking to donors reluctant to support her given her knocks on Wall Street and the wealthy.

01) Unexpected Consequences For Christians Swearing Off Trump


“Christianity Today’s message about Trump is resonating with people.

Christianity Today editor-in-chief Mark Galli said on Sunday that his evangelical magazine has seen a surge in new subscriptions since it published his scathing editorial calling for President Trump’s removal from office.

“A stereotypical response is ‘thank you, thank you, thank you’ with a string of a hundred exclamation points — ‘you’ve said what I’ve been thinking but haven’t been able to articulate, I’m not crazy,'” Galli told MSNBC.

“We have lost subscribers, but we’ve had 3 times as many people start to subscribe,” he continued.

FBI Investigating Matt Bevin…

01) FBI Investigating Matt Bevin


“The FBI is reportedly inquiring about the multiple pardons former Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) issued right before he left office.

Earlier this month, Bevin issued so many pardons before his final day in office that the Kentucky Secretary of State’s office has struggled to keep up. Among the 428 pardons and commutations, Bevin issued some to people convicted of extremely violent crimes such as Patrick Baker who was convicted in Knox County Circuit Court in 2017 of murder, robbery, impersonating a peace officer and tampering with physical evidence, per the pardon order.

According to a Courier Journal report Monday, State Rep. Chris Harris (D) said he was contacted by a criminal investigator last week and asked whether he had any information on Bevin’s pardons.

“I can confirm that I have been contacted by someone looking into the pardons that were issued by Gov. Bevin on his way out the door,” Harris said, without elaborating on what questions he was asked nor the law enforcement agency who contacted him. “The impression I got is that there was an investigation ramping up.

When we are talking about “sexual abuse”…the reason “98% of hymens are still intact”, is because the overwhelming number of cases do not involve vaginal penetration.

Just thought I should point that out.

Trump’s Most Embarrassing Moments of 2019 – Trump’s Origin Story…

01) Trump’s Most Embarrassing Moments of 2019 – Trump’s Origin Story


“ICYMI The myth of Donald Trump is just that…a myth. John Iadarola breaks it down on The Damage Report. Check out The Damage Report’s recap of Trump’s embarrassing 2019 moments.

The myth of Donald Trump, as written by Donald Trump, took yet another blow Monday.

The Washington Post’s Michael Kranish reported that Trump’s admission to the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Finance — one of Trump’s go-to brags to play up his credentials — was hardly the feat he has claimed. In fact, Trump leaned on his older brother’s friendship with an admissions officer to get into the school. And even then, he was clearing a much lower bar than exists for acceptance to the prestigious school today.

Here are the key parts:

James Nolan was working in the University of Pennsylvania’s admissions office in 1966 when he got a phone call from one of his closest friends, Fred Trump Jr. It was a plea to help Fred’s younger brother, Donald Trump, get into Penn’s Wharton School.

“He called me and said, ‘You remember my brother Donald?’ Which I didn’t,” Nolan, 81, said in an interview with The Washington Post. “He said, ‘He’s at Fordham and he would like to transfer to Wharton. Will you interview him?’ I was happy to do that.
