McMaster: Trump Is a "Dope"

 From BuzzFeed:

"Over a July dinner with Oracle CEO Safra Catz — who has been mentioned as a candidate for several potential administration jobs — McMaster bluntly trashed his boss, said the sources, four of whom told BuzzFeed News they heard about the exchange directly from Catz. The top national security official dismissed the president variously as an “idiot” and a “dope” with the intelligence of a “kindergartner,” the sources said."

Remember Jones and Her "Day in Court"?

Woman who accused Trump of sexually assaulting her now wants her day in court.

Right wingers may recall how they USED to champion the notion of a woman having her day in court when it comes to accusing a president of wrong-doing.

Remember?

We told you THEN that one day you'd regret it.

Mueller has on his staff some of the best forensics specialists in the world when it comes to untangling money-laundering schemes......

My guess is Trump's people are sweating bullets.

''During a recent visit by NBC News, the Trump Ocean Club appeared to be largely empty, with virtually no one in the restaurants at night. The hallways were consistently empty. The lights were off in many of the units after dark. Ventura said most of his clients never intended to live in the Trump Ocean Club.''  


They specialize in getting to the bottom of money laundering schemes.

They really ARE good at it. And Trump is beginning to look like an amateur. 


Yes, an amateur.

Who in his right mind would allow his son to set up a secret meeting in Trump Towers to discuss with Russian operatives a scheme to collude?

"Legal Tidal Wave" to Swamp Trump

Former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson makes some good points.
I spent part of my convalescence from a recent illness reading some of the comprehensive timelines of the Russia investigation… In all of this, there is a spectacular accumulation of lies. Lies on disclosure forms. Lies at confirmation hearings. Lies on Twitter. Lies in the White House briefing room. Lies to the FBI. Self-protective lies by the attorney general. Blocking and tackling lies by Vice President Pence. This is, with a few exceptions, a group of people for whom truth, political honor, ethics and integrity mean nothing.
What are the implications? President Trump and others in his administration are about to be hit by a legal tidal wave. We look at the Russia scandal and see lies. A skilled prosecutor sees leverage. People caught in criminal violations make more cooperative witnesses. Robert S. Mueller III and his A-team of investigators have plenty of stupidity and venality to work with. They are investigating an administration riven by internal hatreds — also the prosecutor’s friend. And Trump has already alienated many potential allies in a public contest between himself and Mueller. A number of elected Republicans, particularly in the Senate, would watch this showdown with popcorn.

Former federal prosecutor, Joyce Vance, calls it "incremental truth-telling."  She says you never get it all at once.

She called it "The Hallmark of the Guilty."

"Groping" vs "Reaching For"

While many in the media are breathlessly reporting that Al Franken was photographed "groping" a sleeping Playboy model, some are reporting that the photograph REALLY depicts:

"Her column detailing the incident was complete with a photograph of Franken reaching for her breasts while she was asleep."
 In case you didn't notice, Business Insider characterizes Franken as "reaching for her breasts."  Not "touching," "groping," "grabbing," "rubbing," "massaging," or "pinching."

Just "reaching for."  You know -- like on stage an actor will thrust with a sword and pass it BY the supposed victim. Yes, just an act. He's not REALLY stabbing that guy. He's just acting.

Uranium Smear Is a Hoax


"DID HILLARY CLINTON sell the country’s uranium to Russia in return for donations to the Clinton Foundation? Did the Democrats collude with Russian nationals to tip the election against Donald Trump? 

No, and no. Which raises a third question: Why is any of this relevant, particularly now? A fair look at the facts suggests only one option. President Trump needs a distraction, and his surrogates, some Republican members of Congress, right-wing media and even some people in mainstream outlets are helping him gin up outrage against a woman who is not, was never and will never be president. It is a measure of the power of partisanship to warp people’s judgment that this bald trickery is getting any traction."
. . .

"The party in power is demanding the investigation and possible prosecution of its defeated political rival on trumped-up claims of wrongdoing. This is what happens in banana republics, not the world’s greatest democracy. Even if this is just a strategy to divert attention, it is unbecoming of the leaders of a rule-of-law state and a disservice to their oaths."

Tax Cuts Equal Growth? No Way!

Bruce Bartlett, domestic advisor to Ronald Reagan, admits that tax cut trickle-down schemes amount to a "myth." He argues instead that Bill Clinton's tax hike of 1993 was followed by "the most prosperous decade in recent memory."

From "I helped create the GOP tax myth. Trump is wrong: Tax cuts don’t equal growth" which appeared in the Washington Post:

"The flip-side of tax cut mythology is the notion that tax increases are an economic disaster — the reason, in theory, every Republican in Congress voted against the tax increase proposed by Bill Clinton in 1993. Yet the 1990s was the most prosperous decade in recent memory. At 37.3 percent, aggregate real GDP growth in the 1990s exceeded that in the 1980s."

Broaderrick Swore Clinton Did NOT Sexually Assault Her

From a report in the Washington Post: 

"When Jones's attorneys first subpoenaed her in their sexual harassment lawsuit against the president, Broaddrick swore out an affidavit and testified in a deposition that Clinton did not make unwelcome sexual advances toward her in the late 1970s."



From Juanita Broadderick's sworn affidavit:

"During the 1992 Presidential campaign there were unfounded rumors and stories circulated that Mr. Clinton had made unwelcome sexual advances toward me in the late seventies. Newspaper and tabloid reporters hounded me and my family, seeking corroboration of these tales. I repeatedly denied the allegations and requested that my family's privacy be respected. These allegations are untrue and I had hoped that they would no longer haunt me, or cause further disruption to my family."

Moore, Pedophiles, and "The Right Thing" to Do

I've posed this question to right wingers about 300 times. So far, not ONE straight answer:


If it turns out Moore IS a pedophile, do you believe he will "do the right thing'' as Trump says HE believes Moore will do?


''The president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside.'' - Sara Huckabee Sanders -- Trump Press Secretary

Moore's Reputation

Read it for yourself. From Charles Bethea, The New Yorker:

''I spoke or messaged with more than a dozen people—including a major political figure in the state—who told me that they had heard, over the years, that Moore had been banned from the mall because he repeatedly badgered teen-age girls. Some say that they heard this at the time, others in the years since. These people include five members of the local legal community, two cops who worked in the town, several people who hung out at the mall in the early eighties, and a number of former mall employees.'' 


"Gadsden’s current law-enforcement community could not confirm the existence of a mall ban on Moore. But two officers I spoke to this weekend, both of whom asked to remain unnamed, told me that they have long heard stories about Moore and the mall. “The general knowledge at the time when I moved here was that this guy is a lawyer cruising the mall for high-school dates,” one of the officers said. The legal age of consent in Alabama is sixteen, so it would not be illegal there for a man in his early thirties to date a girl who was, say, a senior in high school. But these officers, along with the other people I spoke to, said that Moore’s presence at the mall was regarded as a problem. “I was told by a girl who worked at the mall that he’d been run off from there, from a number of stores. Maybe not legally banned, but run off,” one officer told me. He also said, “I heard from one girl who had to tell the manager of a store at the mall to get Moore to leave her alone.”"

"The second officer went further. “A friend of mine told me he was banned from there,” he said. He added, “I actually voted for Moore. I liked him at one time. But I’m basically disgusted now, to be honest with you. Some of the things he’s said recently, I’ve changed my tune completely about this guy.” He went on, explaining why Moore no longer appeals to him. “When I heard what he said on ‘Hannity’ the other night,” he said, referring to an appearance Moore made on Sean Hannity’s radio show last Friday, “I almost stood straight up. The thing about how he’s never dated anybody without their mother’s permission, that appalled me. That made me want to throw up. Why would you need someone’s permission to date somebody? I’m probably gonna write in Luther Strange.”"

Farewell, America

Farewell, America

November 10, 2016 by
This post first appeared on BillMoyers.com.

America died on Nov. 8, 2016, not with a bang or a whimper, but at its own hand via electoral suicide. We the people chose a man who has shredded our values, our morals, our compassion, our tolerance, our decency, our sense of common purpose, our very identity — all the things that, however tenuously, made a nation out of a country.

Whatever place we now live in is not the same place it was on Nov. 7. No matter how the rest of the world looked at us on Nov. 7, they will now look at us differently. We are likely to be a pariah country. And we are lost for it. As I surveyed the ruin of that country this gray Wednesday morning, I found weary consolation in W.H. Auden’s poem, September 1, 1939, which concludes:

"Defenseless under the night Our world in stupor lies; Yet, dotted everywhere, Ironic points of light Flash out wherever the Just Exchange their messages: May I, composed like them Of Eros and of dust, Beleaguered by the same Negation and despair, Show an affirming flame."

I hunt for that affirming flame.

This generally has been called the “hate election" because everyone professed to hate both candidates. It turned out to be the hate election because, and let’s not mince words, of the hatefulness of the electorate. In the years to come, we will brace for the violence, the anger, the racism, the misogyny, the xenophobia, the nativism, the white sense of grievance that will undoubtedly be unleashed now that we have destroyed the values that have bound us.

We all knew these hatreds lurked under the thinnest veneer of civility. That civility finally is gone. In its absence, we may realize just how imperative that politesse was. It is the way we managed to coexist.

If there is a single sentence that characterizes the election, it is this: “He says the things I’m thinking." That may be what is so terrifying. Who knew that so many tens of millions of white Americans were thinking unconscionable things about their fellow Americans? Who knew that tens of millions of white men felt so emasculated by women and challenged by minorities? Who knew that after years of seeming progress on race and gender, tens of millions of white Americans lived in seething resentment, waiting for a demagogue to arrive who would legitimize their worst selves and channel them into political power? Perhaps we had been living in a fool’s paradise. Now we aren’t.

This country has survived a civil war, two world wars and a Great Depression. There are many who say we will survive this, too. Maybe we will, but we won’t survive unscathed. We know too much about each other to heal. No more can we pretend that we are exceptional or good or progressive or united. We are none of those things. Nor can we pretend that democracy works and that elections have more-or-less happy endings. Democracy only functions when its participants abide by certain conventions, certain codes of conduct and a respect for the process.

The virus that kills democracy is extremism because extremism disables those codes. Republicans have disrespected the process for decades. They have regarded any Democratic president as illegitimate. They have proudly boasted of preventing popularly elected Democrats from effecting policy and have asserted that only Republicans have the right to determine the nation’s course. They have worked tirelessly to make sure that the government cannot govern and to redefine the purpose of government as prevention rather than effectuation. In short, they haven’t believed in democracy for a long time, and the media never called them out on it.

Democracy can’t cope with extremism. Only violence and time can defeat it. The first is unacceptable, the second takes too long. Though Trump is an extremist, I have a feeling that he will be a very popular president and one likely to be re-elected by a substantial margin, no matter what he does or fails to do. That’s because ever since the days of Ronald Reagan, rhetoric has obviated action, speechifying has superseded governing.

Trump was absolutely correct when he bragged that he could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue and his supporters wouldn’t care. It was a dictator’s ugly vaunt, but one that recognized this election never was about policy or economics or the “right path/wrong path," or even values. It was about venting. So long as Trump vented their grievances, his all-white supporters didn’t care about anything else. He is smart enough to know that won’t change in the presidency. In fact, it is only likely to intensify. White America, Trump’s America, just wants to hear its anger bellowed. This is one time when the Bully Pulpit will be literal.

The media can’t be let off the hook for enabling an authoritarian to get to the White House. Long before he considered a presidential run, he was a media creation — a regular in the gossip pages, a photo on magazine covers, the bankrupt (morally and otherwise) mogul who hired and fired on The Apprentice. When he ran, the media treated him not as a candidate, but as a celebrity, and so treated him differently from ordinary pols. The media gave him free publicity, trumpeted his shenanigans, blasted out his tweets, allowed him to phone in his interviews, fell into his traps and generally kowtowed until they suddenly discovered that this joke could actually become president.

Just as Trump has shredded our values, our nation and our democracy, he has shredded the media. In this, as in his politics, he is only the latest avatar of a process that began long before his candidacy. Just as the sainted Ronald Reagan created an unbridgeable chasm between rich and poor that the Republicans would later exploit against Democrats, conservatives delegitimized mainstream journalism so they could fill the vacuum.

Retiring conservative talk show host Charlie Sykes complained that after years of bashing from the right wing, the mainstream media no longer could perform their function as reporters, observers, fact dispensers, and even truth tellers, and he said we needed them. Like Goebbels before them, conservatives understood they had to create their own facts, their own truths, their own reality. They have done so, and in so doing effectively destroyed the very idea of objectivity. Trump can lie constantly only because white America has accepted an Orwellian sense of truth — the truth pulled inside out.

With Trump’s election, I think that the ideal of an objective, truthful journalism is dead, never to be revived. Like Nixon and Sarah Palin before him, Trump ran against the media, boomeranging off the public’s contempt for the press. He ran against what he regarded as media elitism and bias, and he ran on the idea that the press disdained working-class white America. Among the many now-widening divides in the country, this is a big one, the divide between the media and working-class whites, because it creates a Wild West of information — a media ecology in which nothing can be believed except what you already believe.

With the mainstream media so delegitimized — a delegitimization for which they bear a good deal of blame, not having had the courage to take on lies and expose false equivalencies — they have very little role to play going forward in our politics. I suspect most of them will surrender to Trumpism — if they were able to normalize Trump as a candidate, they will no doubt normalize him as president.

Cable news may even welcome him as a continuous entertainment and ratings booster. And in any case, like Reagan, he is bulletproof. The media cannot touch him, even if they wanted to. Presumably, there will be some courageous guerillas in the mainstream press, a kind of Resistance, who will try to fact-check him. But there will be few of them, and they will be whistling in the wind. Trump, like all dictators, is his own truth.

What’s more, Trump already has promised to take his war on the press into courtrooms and the halls of Congress. He wants to loosen libel protections, and he has threatened Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos of Amazon with an antitrust suit. Individual journalists have reason to fear him as well. He has already singled out NBC’s Katy Tur, perhaps the best of the television reporters, so that she needed the Secret Service to escort her from one of his rallies. Jewish journalists who have criticized Trump have been subjected to vicious anti-Semitism and intimidation from the white nationalist "alt-right."

For the press, this is likely to be the new normal in an America in which white supremacists, neo-Nazi militias, racists, sexists, homophobes and anti-Semites have been legitimized by a new president who “says what I’m thinking." It will be open season.

This converts the media from reporters to targets, and they have little recourse. Still, if anyone points the way forward, it may be New York Times columnist David Brooks. Brooks is no paragon. He always had seemed to willfully neglect modern Republicanism’s incipient fascism (now no longer incipient), and he was an apologist for conservative self-enrichment and bigotry. But this campaign season, Brooks pretty much dispensed with politics. He seemed to have arrived at the conclusion that no good could possibly come of any of this and retreated into spirituality. What Brooks promoted were values of mutual respect, a bolder sense of civic engagement, an emphasis on community and neighborhood, and overall a belief in trickle-up decency rather than trickle-down economics. He is not hopeful, but he hasn’t lost all hope.

For those of us now languishing in despair, this may be a prescription for rejuvenation. We have lost the country, but by refocusing, we may have gained our own little patch of the world and, more granularly, our own family. For journalists, Brooks may show how political reporting, which, as I said, is likely to be irrelevant in the Trump age, might yield to a broader moral context in which one considers the effect that policy, strategy and governance have not only on our physical and economic well-being but also on our spiritual well-being. In a society that is likely to be fractious and odious, we need a national conversation on values. The media could help start it.

But the disempowered media may have one more role to fill: They must bear witness. Many years from now, future generations will need to know what happened to us and how it happened. They will need to know how disgruntled white Americans, full of self-righteous indignation, found a way to take back a country they felt they were entitled to and which they believed had been lost. They will need to know about the ugliness and evil that destroyed us as a nation after great men like Lincoln and Roosevelt guided us through previous crises and kept our values intact. They will need to know, and they will need a vigorous, engaged, moral media to tell them. They will also need us.

We are not living for ourselves anymore in this country. Now we are living for history.

Trust a Pedophile to Do the Right Thing?

 Let's unpack that.

She's saying, if this guy is in fact a pedophile, he will do the right thing.

What? If he's a pedophile, he is BY DEFINITION willing to do the WRONG thing.

Trump, Flynn, Comey, Obstruction of Justice

From the NYTIMES:

"WASHINGTON — President Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, in an Oval Office meeting in February, according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting.
“I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to the memo."

You guys say Moore is "innocent until proven guilty."  But you pronounce the victims and their friends and families "guilty of something or another."

From ''The Memphis Flyer'' -

"The truth is, anyone in this administration who wants to keep their job has to be willing to lie for their boss. For example, at Trump's direction, Vice President Mike Pence spent tax-payer money to fly across country to a football game just so he could walk out during the national anthem. Pence's soul (such as it is) has long been sold.

And let's not forget Kellyanne Conway, perhaps the most enthusiastic liar ever to appear on the national stage. Or Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who's lied to Congress twice to protect his boss (and his own butt). And there's Trump's chief of staff, General John Kelly — once perceived as a beacon of truth and integrity in this administration — who's now been outed as someone willing to make up lies for his boss, and defend them, even after they've been disproven."

Trump's Russia Ties


Rigged? Not Quite

"No, the DNC didn’t ‘rig’ the Democratic primary for Hillary Clinton." It is "not unheard of, for a national committee to align with a candidate before he or she wins the nomination. One example was the 1992 Republican primary, when incumbent President George H.W. Bush faced a primary challenge from Pat Buchanan and the RNC openly stated that “the chairman is 100 percent behind George Bush and so is the committee.”" "Brazile states that as Al Gore’s campaign manager, she did not start “inserting” staff into the DNC until June 2000. While this is technically true, it misrepresents the level of control Gore already had over the DNC before the 2000 primaries began: By 1999, the DNC’s senior staff was dominated by Democratic politicos with long-standing relations to Gore — including both co-chairmen, the finance chair and one of the senior advisers. Thus, while the DNC did not endorse Gore, it clearly preferred him in the 2000 primaries."

Wait: There is more.

"I had tried to search out any other evidence of internal corruption that would show that the DNC was rigging the system to throw the primary to Hillary, but I could not find any in party affairs or among the staff. I had gone department by department, investigating individual conduct for evidence of skewed decisions, and I was happy to see that I had found none."

Why They Hate the Clintons

Yes, they hate the Clintons for a lot of reasons.

They hate them for having a strong marriage. Unlike Reagan, for
instance, they've never been divorced.

They hate them for wanting to bring affordable health care to the poor.

They hate Bill for focusing on terrorism at the same time the GOP was trying to destroy him over a trumped up domestic scandal.

They hate her for speaking AGAINST attacking Iraq.

They hate her for predicting proposed GOP cuts to State Dept security would cause problems.

They hate her for telling the truth about what happened in Benghazi.

They hate her for being right on just about every political issue that's come down the pike.

And they hate her for being strong; for standing up to their attacks; and for weathering their smears.

And, you're right. They hate her for coming out of the trumped up scandals, not only surviving politically, but achieving enormous success financially.

One Suggested Russia/Trump Timeline

“The Campaign Supervisor”: Trump campaign national co-chairman Sam Clovis

“High-Ranking Campaign Official”: Campaign manager Corey Lewandowski

“Another high-ranking campaign official”: Campaign chairman Paul Manafort

“Another campaign official”: Manafort deputy Rick Gates

And finally: “Senior Policy Advisor”: Unknown  -- speculated to be Jared Kushner
______________________________________

On March 6, Papadopolous became a member (not announced publically)  of the Trump campaign's foreign policy advisory board.

Within a week, Trump incorporated the meme about Putin being a strong leader who admires Trump. (March 12)

Two days later (March 14) Papadopolous goes to Europe to meet with a man claiming to have Russian connections.

One week later March 21 Trump announces him as an "excellent" member of his foreign policy advisory board.

Same day -- Trump reaffirms how much Putin admires Trump and "says nice things" about him.

Three days later, March 24, 2016, Papadopolous meets with a "professor" based in London -- "to arrange a meeting between us and the Russian leadership."

A week later, March 31, Trump meets with his foreign policy advisory team, which of course includes Papadopolous. A photo records their sitting at the same table along with Jeff Sessions who famously lied under oath about HIS collusion with the Russians. During that meeting, according to at least one adviser present, Papadopolous discussed with Trump and the board the prospect of his setting up a meeting with Putin.

Team Trump claimed the candidate had never met with Putin's campaign insider, George Popodopolous; then reporters discovered that Trump himself had posted a photograph of those PRESENT at the meeting when Papadopolous explained to Trump, Sessions, and the other of the conspiracy to use Russian ''dirt.''

Then on April 25, Papadopoulos emailed a senior policy advisor for the campaign informing the campaign that Trump has been extended an open invitation to meet him when he is ready.

The next day, April 26, Papadopolous meets his Russian contact, and reports that Russia is offering "thousands" of clinton emails and "dirt" on her.

That same night -- April 26, Trump brags in public that he's "going to have a great relationship with Putin.

Then on April 27, Papadopolous emails a high-ranking official of the campaign "to discuss Russia's interest in hosting Mr. Trump."

That same night, April 27, Trump gives a speech on US/Russia relations. The speech is attended by Putin's top spy in DC.

On the morning of June 3rd, Junior receives an email from someone linked to Russia promising that Russia could provide "information that would incriminate Hillary. Junior responds, "if it's what you say I love it!"

Later that same June 3rd, on the campaign trail, Trump brags that Putin says, "Donald Trump is a genius and is going to be the next president of the US." "Wouldn't it be nice if we actually got along with Russia?"

Less than a week later, Jared, Junior, and Manafort held a secret meeting at Trump Tower with Kremlin operatives who have promised documents what will "incriminate Hillary.
Manafort reportedly took notes on "political contributions at meeting."  Hmmmm.... "contributions"? Even Manafort KNEW that a gift of oppo-research is a campaign "contribution" which is illegal when gifted by foreign nationals.

January 27, Papadopolous is first interviewed by the FBI. Papadopolous lied during the meeting about his colluding with the Russians.

That VERY SAME day, January 27, Trump called Comey into his office and demanded his loyalty. Comey felt uncomfortable with such an inappropriate and possibly illegal overture by Trump; and he demurred.

July 27 - Papadopoulos was arrested. His arrest for lying about Trump campaign contacts with Russian operatives fell exactly ONE YEAR after Trump famously publically invited Russia to assist his campaign by hacking into Hillary's emails. During his invitation for Russia to hack into our election process, Trump hinted Russia would be "mightily rewarded."

_______________

A few of my thoughts:

On March 14, 2016, Papadopolous goes to Europe to meet with a man claiming to have Russian connections.

One week later March 21 Trump announces him as an ''excellent'' member of his foreign policy advisory board.

Coincidence?

I doubt it.

Extensive Reach of Criminal Conspiracy

Who all was in on the Russian collusion? Where did Putin's invitation to collude with Trump go? It went viral apparently - within the highest reaches of the campaign. Just connect the dots. You know Mueller has.

"Newly released court documents show that Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos communicated with several senior campaign officials about his outreach to the Russian government over a period of months. The recipients of Papadopoulos’s emails are not named in the filings, but The Washington Post has identified several individuals based on interviews and other documents."

Those in the know about the conspiracy between the Trump team and the Kremln?

According to the Post they are:

“The Campaign Supervisor”: Trump campaign national co-chairman Sam Clovis

“High-Ranking Campaign Official”: Campaign manager Corey Lewandowski

“Another high-ranking campaign official”: Campaign chairman Paul Manafort

“Another campaign official”: Manafort deputy Rick Gates

And finally: “Senior Policy Advisor”: Unknown  -- speculated to be Jared Kushner (whom we expect to be thrown under the bus by Trump)

Collusion? Yes, It Seems So!!

From Papa's guilty plea: 

''Papadopolous emailed the High-Ranking Campaign Official, with the subject line 'New message from Russia.': 'The Russian ministry of foreign affairs messaged and said that if Mr. Trump is unable to make it to Russia, if a campaign rep (me or someone else can make it for meetings? I am willing to make the trip . . . The Campaign Supervisor told the defendant . . . 'I would encourage you' and another foreign policy adviser to the campaign to 'make the trip, if it is feasible.'''

Trump the Willful Idiot

 ''How did Putin dupe anybody, specifically?''

We're not sure. But we believe Putin did a KGB style ''dangle.'' 

That is he had one of his oligarch pals dupe Trump into thinking he REALLY wanted to pay two bucks on the dollar for a house Trump owned. 

It's called a ''dangle'' because if Trump refused; or if Trump referred the offer to the FBI, then they could simply walk away; deny everything; no harm done; just find the next stooge to ''dangle.'' 

But Trump, like a moron, took the bait, and now we have a Putin willful ''idiot'' in the Oval Office.

How Odd

Verichez nope now what? 



Not only is Pale unwilling to state it's important that people answer questions, he also refuses to condemn crimes we know were committed by Trump and his campaign.


As long as Pale refuses to condemn Trump's illegal solicitation of campaign contributions, we will consider Pale to lack the moral authority to complain about LEGAL actions committed by Hillary.

Sessions' Constantly Evolving Russia Story

They're always walking back, modifying, ''clarfying,'' etc.

Sessions when from: No, I didn't meet with any Russians.

TO: Well, except for Putin's top spy in DC; I did meet with him. But we didn't discuss campaign matters.

Then when caught on tape discussing campaign matters with Kislyak, his story changed to: 


But we didn't discuss ways for Putin to interfere in the election.

San Antonio Spurs Coach Speaks Out

We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually,  emotionally, and  psychologically to hold this office and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this President should be ashamed because they know it better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.

Team Trump Pushed Russian Propaganda

Now it's coming out. In the days leading up to election day, top level Trump associates pushed Russian propaganda.

We know Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, Donald Trump Jr., Michael Flynn Sr., and Michael Flynn Jr. all retweeted anti Hillary/pro-Trump propaganda generated by the Russians.

Sessions' Evolving Story

Sessions went from: Having no contact with the Russians.

To: Except for the Russian thought to be Putin's head spy in DC.

To: But we didn't discuss campaign matters.

To: (After having been caught on tape discussing campaign matters with Putin's operative) Well, we didn't discuss how to help them interfere in the election.

Brookings Institution Weighs in on Obstruction

From the Brookings Institution:

"Attempts to stop an investigation represent a common form of obstruction. Demanding the loyalty of an individual involved in an investigation, requesting that individual’s help to end the investigation, and then ultimately firing that person to accomplish that goal are the type of acts that have frequently resulted in obstruction convictions, as we detail. In addition, to the extent conduct could be characterized as threatening, intimidating, or corruptly persuading witnesses, that too may provide additional grounds for obstruction charges."

. . .

"While those defending the president may claim that expressing a “hope” that an investigation will end is too vague to constitute obstruction, we show that such language is sufficient  to do so. In that regard, it is material that former FBI Director James Comey interpreted the president’s “hope” that he would drop the investigation into Flynn as an instruction to drop the case. That Comey ignored that instruction is beside the point under applicable law. We also note that potentially misleading conduct and possible cover-up attempts could serve as further evidence of obstruction. Here, such actions may include fabricating an initial justification for firing Comey, directing Donald Trump Jr.’s inaccurate statements about the purpose of his meeting with a Russian lawyer during the president’s campaign, tweeting that Comey “better hope there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations,” despite having “no idea” whether such tapes existed, and repeatedly denouncing the validity of the investigations."

. . .

While the matter is not free from doubt, it is our view that neither the Constitution nor any other federal law grants the president immunity from prosecution. The structure of the Constitution, the fundamental democratic principle that no person is above the law, and past Supreme Court precedent holding that the president is amenable to other forms of legal process all weigh heavily in favor of that conclusion. While there can be debate as to whether a sitting president can be indicted, there is no doubt that a president can face indictment once he is no longer in office. Reserving prosecution for that time, using a sealed indictment or otherwise, is another option for the special counsel."

Our friend, Imzadi, publishes an absolutely hilarious website devoted to the really funny things folks post in the Political Chat Room. But some people, and I won't mention any names, refuse to allow their material to be posted at Imzadi's site. Imzadi is much more sympathetic to their chickensh*t ways than I am.
