    Ken Buck "Tax Cuts" Town Hall in Lone Tree today, Friday, July 20, at 3 pm at the Lone Tree Hub. (facebook) (website) (map) 8827 Lone Tree Pkwy, Lone Tree, Colorado 80124

    NOTE: You will need to RSVP by  email to: for Buck's Town Hall.

    There is no info on Ken Buck's congressional website, although he is tweeting about the need to  pre-emptively shield nominee Kavanaugh from the "flaming arrows of vitriol headed his way." Because, you know, liberals are all about the flaming vitriol arrows.

    And those poor lil conservative snowflakes might melt under direct questioning. 


    Info from the Win the Fourth (WTF) newsletter:

    We suggest smuggling in small-ish "Silent Heckling" signs to hold up, saying, for example, TRUE and FALSE or AGREE and DISAGREE. We don't want to let Buck and his buddy Kevin Brady to get too comfortable. Let's make them sweat!

    THEN, at 5, WTF COLORADO is hosting an after-Town-Hall Debrief.

    This will be the fun part! You are welcome even if you can't get in to Buck's event. We will be buying the first round and selling WTF Colorado Logo T-shirts, certain to become a collector's item.

    WTF Colorado wants YOU!

    Michael Cohen Secretly Taped Trump Discussing Payment to Playboy Model

    President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording.

    The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any conversation with Mr. Trump about those payments would be of keen interest to them.

      At this point I don’t think a tape of T**** smoking a joint while having gay sex with a klansman would lose Nutter or his crowd. The evangelicals have shown that’s only a problem when it’s the other team (like deficit spending).

      It’s about what’s in your heart y’all and knowing POTUS would never lie to his base. 

      • Duke Cox says:

        Thanks for that, Michael. I think the less we say his name and the less attention we give him, the sooner he will be gone.

        I think his ratings are about to tank.

        • JohnInDenver says:

          I think the way to facilitate leave-taking is for Democrats to win the House and exercise their authority to get the income tax records. Then, threaten to take them public unless there is a resignation. Bargaining ensues and "the art of the deal" is able to get himself a free train ticket and agreement to not take away his pension.

          He pardons Ivanka (and maybe Jared), himself (can't trust Pence after that Ford fiasco), and the others he can recall by name off the top of his head. Leaves a forwarding address and rushes back to a nearby golf course.

        Not homosexual sex with a klansman, but homosexual sex with a famous liberal Democrat might do it.

        IIRC, Nutter explains it by saying Trump is an imperfect vessel, Yadda, yadda…for bringing about big and beautiful tax cuts!
