Open thread for night owls: 'There are moments in time when people need to live their convictions'

In an interview with the Washington Post, the owner of a rural Virginia restaurant defended her decision to refuse service to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “I’m not a huge fan of confrontation,” Wilkinson said. “I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.” [...] “I would have done the same thing again,” she said  “We just felt there are moments in time when people need to live their convictions. This appeared to be one.” Indivisible’s list of Resistance Events & Groups TOP COMMENTS • HIGH IMPACT STORIES • THE WEEK’S HIGH IMPACT STORIES TWEET OF THE DAY xEvery time someone burps up this vapid cliche, I die a little more inside. https://t.co/gIsu6BzWov— David Roberts (@drvox) June 24, 2018 BLAST FROM THE PAST On this date at Daily Kos in 2004—The Cheney Coup: Whoa, how did I almost miss this? After the 9-11 attacks, Cheney sent Bush away and took control of the US response to the attacks. He essentially staged a coup, taking over as «commander in chief.» This information was contained in a draft report from the 9-11 Commission. America was under attack, and somebody had to make a decision. Dick Cheney, huddled in the Presidential Emergency Operations Center under the White House, had just urged the traveling George W. Bush not to return to Washington. The president had left Florida aboard Air Force One at 9:55 a.m. on 9/11 «with no destination at take-off,» as last week's 9-11 Commission report noted. Nor had Bush given any known instructions on how to respond to the attacks. Now Cheney faced another huge decision on a morning in which every minute seemed monumental. The two airliners had already crashed into the Twin Towers, another into the Pentagon. Combat air patrols were aloft, and a military aide was asking for shoot-down authority, telling Cheney that a fourth plane was «80 miles out» from Washington. Cheney didn't flinch, the report said. «In about the time it takes a batter to decide to swing,» he gave the order to shoot it down, telling others the president had «signed off on the concept» during a brief phone chat. When the plane was 60 miles out, Cheney was again informed and again he ordered: take it out. Then Joshua Bolten, after what he described in testimony as «a quiet moment,» spoke up. Bolten, the White House deputy chief of staff, asked the veep to get back in touch with the president to «confirm the engage order.» Bolten was clearly subordinate to Cheney, but «he had not heard any prior conversation on the subject with the president,» the 9/11 report notes. Nor did the real-time notes taken by two others in the room, Cheney's chief of staff, «Scooter» Libby--who is known for his meticulous record-keeping--or Cheney's wife, Lynne, reflect that such a phone call between Bush and Cheney occurred or that such a major decision as shooting down a U.S. airliner was discussed. Bush and Cheney later testified the president gave the order. And national-security adviser Condoleezza Rice and a military aide said they remembered a call, but gave few specifics. The report concluded «there is no documentary evidence for this call.» This is startling information. The vice president ordered the president sent away and took control of the government.
