The interview I watched was with the house minority leader, a republican, who said he would pass it.  You sure we're talking about the same thing?

Why not?

Because they already tried it and Blackburn killed it.  And they needed unanimous consent because McConnell has already said he will not let any normal bill even get a floor vote.  It will never even get out of committee.

Trump would 100% veto the bill you propose, but he will never have to because the Senate will kill them all. 
There is only support in the House, and only because Dems have the majority.  The House GOP is even more batshit insane than the Senate. 

The ENTIRE GOP is crooked.  It's not just Trump.  It's not just Congress.  It's just about every pundit, too, including the nevertrumpers.  The right is rotten to the core.  You need to start all over from scratch to fix it.  Not just pass a couple bills to try and contain Trump.  The problem is much, much deeper than Trump.  He's just a symptom.

I caught most of tonite's "30 Hours with President Trump" special on ABC, where George Stephanopoulos hung out with Trump for 30 hrs. It was insightful to see how Trump is so much into his own universe, pretty much like a psychopath who believes his own lies to be true. I thought Stephanopoulos did a pretty good job in pushing back on a number of things, which of course Trump immediately dismisses as "fake news" (such as recent polls showing Biden leading vs. Trump). It is clear that Trump backers are going to believe whatever they want to believe. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

The Reds are as of today 7 games under .500 and tied for last place, although the "least worst" team that is in last place. Does that give me any comfort? None.

Case in point: I'm slated to host our firm's corporate suite at GABP with clients on Sunday, June 30 (yes, only 2 weeks from today) As of now, I have NOT A SINGLE CLIENT that I have invited (and I have invited many) to attend the game. I mean, I'm getting desperate now. ZK, you wanna come up from Richmond and attend? I'm sure I could call you a "potential client" or some such, Yea, it's that bad. And mind you, it's the only suite game I am hosting this year (cutting down from 2 last year, and 3 or 4 in the years before).

I see ZERO interest among our clients to attend a Reds game, in a corporate suite no less, with free food and unlimited drinks. What does that tell you? <sigh>

For Godís sake people, stop making the ridiculous argument that the women should be paid as much or more than the men because they are performing better. 
Agreed 100 percent. This current sentiment is of course PC run amok. I care about women's soccer only when it's the World Cup or the Olympic Games. That 3 weeks, 2 years out of 4 years.

You're angered by the fact that the left and the media aren't attacking Trump the way you would like him attacked.  You blew it by allowing this to happen to your party, and now you're trying to make the left do what you want.  Sorry, no sale.

At some point you misunderstood what I said.  Forget the left, just the media here.   I think it would go a long way for them to report what Trump is doing and if we have laws ion the books vs if we don't.  Many times we go days with a Trump did so and so which broke the law ... and then, just as you said above, we start hearing 'probably' illegal ... and then woops, actually, there is no law.   

For the contact with a foreign official issue I say let's pass a law.  So what if Trump vetos it.  He won't, but it appears there's enough support in the house and senate to pass this.   Why not?

Solid game from USWNT today, though they still havenít been tested yet.  Endlerís performance was not as legendary as some people want it to be, but it was still quite good and sheís staked her claim as best woman GK in the world.

For Godís sake people, stop making the ridiculous argument that the women should be paid as much or more than the men because they are performing better.  If thereís a reason to support womenís sports, itís because some thing are more important than what happens on the pitch.  The USMNT could destroy the women by 15 goals if they wanted.  And what will you say in four years when the USWNT when the world finished catching up and the USWNT might only be the fourth or fifth best team in the world?  Can we stop paying them so much? The US women cannot even support a domestic league.  So if you really care about womenís soccer go and watch some NWSL instead of just showing up once every four years and rooting for the front runners.

Also Allie Long played like a weird crazy psycho and should have been red carded several times.  If we canít talk about goal celebrations can we at least address the maniac out there trying to ruin peopleís careers in a 3-0 game?  Itís not like the USWNT doesnít have other options.

Portman votes with Trump 92% of the time, which is more than the average GOP Senator.  He has also already endorsed him in 2020.  Thereís nothing moderate about him at all.
Thatís the point Iím making. That there is no one on the right really willing to attack Trump on his policies, or the whole nationalist/authoritarian philosophy that underpins the policy.

If we believe that global warming is a vast conspiracy, and the mainstream media is a front for Sorosís plan to be a world leader, and that the country is being invaded by millions of rapists and murdererís thatís a pretty bleak scenario where it kind of makes sense to declare martial law instead of hoping for the proper appropriation bills to make their way through a Congress that is in on and supporting the plot.

The mainstream media and the left are saying the things that need to be said.  Why attack them, instead of the supposed ďmoderateĒ or nevertrump right.  The left is correct to point out all the things that Trump says/does that are awful even if they are not illegal or unconstitutional.  The left also has a pretty clear message, itís just not one you (o to a lesser extent, me) agree with.

But no one is going to speak up for the moderate right until the can prove they actually exist.  As long as Portman is just a faceman for Trump, no one cares what the ďmoderateĒ right thinks.
