He has been de-fanged though. Posted a CAPS LOCK declaration of war and the world yawned. Iran laughed. Oil prices did not even wiggle. He's now making a Soviet-style farm policy. Obamacare funds have been quietly restored. Almost hilarious.

It's 7:00am, maybe, it could be 8:00am. It's hard to tell. The electricity has been off for, well, a very long time. The sun is starting to rise over the horizon with the red mist slowly lifting to light another bleak day. The trees are gone, the water is blooming with algae, the air is foul with the stench of failed dreams of a past life. The hills are anything but alive with music. People sit, and talk, sometimes they fight, but for the most part, they just roam aimlessly wondering what happened to their lives. Whatever dreams we had left were gone, if they ever existed in the first place. It's hard to remember anything different from now. Someone said it all happened with a tweet. A tweet in all caps.

With a smile the food truck delivery guy tells us the date is 20Jan2025 and we all should be happy. Happy? Happy about what?After a few moments looking cluelessly around the group of haggard survivors we all realize that it is the last day of Trump's presidency. Oh yeah. No one really cares. No one actually has the energy to give a fuck, simply because there are no more fucks to give. They ran out shortly after the fighting was over and no one could figure out exactly why it started. The thought of everything we have seen haunts us like a chilling echo. How the hell did it go that far? Why didn't someone do something? We don't talk about it because there is nothing to talk about. It's over. We know it's the last day, but no one knows who the next president is. Hell, no one knows if there even is another president. What would be the point.

As we stand silently looking over what use to be Rome, a man starts giggling and pointing to an open field across the street. One by one all of us slowly turn towards where the man is pointing. And more giggling starts. Soon a wave of laugher washes over the group like a rush of morphine. Within moments, the entire group is laughing so hard it's hard to control normal bodily functions. A man named Razor standing next to me falls to the ground overwhelmed by laughter and the lack of oxygen. I fear in his weaken condition he may die. Lucky him. As I look across the street, I too start to laugh. What in the fuck is this? Am I seeing this right? It's a man. A man driving an old beat up Honda Ridgeline truckette towing a miniature cannon. How he got it to run is beyond me, but fuck if he didn't. He is doing donuts in the field and honking the horn. He's yelling something out the driver window, but it's hard to hear over the rattling engine noise and blaring horn. As he gets closer,  I finally hear it. "We Won! We Won! We Won! YooHoo! We Won!"

You can't really blame Trump. He is doing what any good businessman would do - make as much money for himself as possible with little or no regard for anyone else. Truly refreshing.

I hate Trump so much that it is difficult to recognize any thing positive he does, which I am sure actually happens, since 40% of Americans still support him.  I guess that is the definition of TDS.  Anything I can take for it?  I am so tired of being pissed off about what I have seen/read on the news, SA-Political,  or bumper stickers in the last couple of years.  I need to go sailing, like RTW nonstop, or at least to Cumberland Island.  Anyone want a really great, primary rescued, 35 pound, 2 year old (approximately) spayed, female dog?

Yes, it would appear you do suffer from TDS. The first step to a cure is acknowledging it, so congratulations!

Hanging around here, watching MSNBC or reading from the NYT or WaPo is not good for your disease state as the shrill flying off other TDS sufferers is damaging to your condition.

Excerpt -

A group of conservative House lawmakers on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the top Department of Justice (DOJ) official overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

The introduction of the resolution is the latest sign of escalating efforts among conservatives to oust the DOJ’s No. 2 official.

It was a representative's priviledge to introduce. There is no vote. It's just Freedom Caucus screeching monkeys flinging feces. Jim Jordan no doubt is also trying to get his overlooking multiple sexual assaults at Ohio St off the front page. Trey Gowdy, Paul Ryan, and several other Republicans have stated there will be no impeachment vote of Rosenstein, and they will not support it.

They aren’t Conservatives. At best, they are “conservatives”, and more accurately, they are Republicans.

Well, I have been trying to find her a home since she crawled out of the woods afraid, skinny, mangy and tick infested, a year ago.  I want to go sailing when my old dog, who crawled out of the same woods 12 years ago, passes and before I get too old, which is probably already too late.  Long times on a small boat would not be fair to her.    Seems people like to dump animals in the woods next to my house.  Guess I could have taken her to animal control at the time, but like me, she is not cute enough for anyone to want her so she would probably have been put down due to her condition.  Unlike me, she has a great personality if someone took the time to get to know her.  Want a great, 2 year old, 35 pound, spayed, heart worm free dog?   And no, I won't abandon her, but if I can find her a good home.....

Why? The McCain/Feingold law said that pre$$ corporations had extra first amendment rights. Well, they called them "media corporations" but the meaning is the same.

Just wondering whether you think those qualify as "media" and thus qualify for extra rights.

Not that it would be up to you if we still had that law. Prosecutors working for Jeff Sessions would decide. My guess: they'd say yes to 100% of those media outlets and no to quite a few you would like. Just a guess. What's yours?

FCC chair Ajit Pai this afternoon responded with a curt thanks-but-no-thanks. "In light of my commitment to protecting the First Amendment and freedom of the press, I must respectfully decline," Pai wrote. "I have repeatedly made clear that the FCC does not have the authority to revoke a license of a broadcast station based on the content of a particular newscast. I understand that you disliked or disagreed with the content of particular broadcasts, but I can hardly think of an action more chilling of free speech than the federal government investigating a broadcast station because of disagreement with its news coverage or promotion of that coverage."

Good for Mr. Pai.

Why the Allen Weisselberg subpoena is so dangerous for Trump 
Allen Weisselberg, the man at the financial center of Trump's businesses, presents a new problem for the president. 
Ryan Koronowski 
Jul 26, 2018, 3:52 pm



Weisselberg serves as the Trump Organization’s Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President,having joined the company after he graduated college in the 1970s. He mostly keeps a low profile: his name does not appear on the Trump Organization’s website, and he has been described as Trump’s “closest business confidant,” and a Trump aide who “fits in with the wallpaper.” 

Since Trump’s inauguration, Weisselberg — along with the president’s sons, Donald Jr. and Eric — has been responsible for any company decisions, supposedly without any involvement on the part of the president. 

He was named a trustee of the neither blind nor independent Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, which holds the president’s assets (and from which the president can withdraw money whenever he wishes). Bloomberg reported that Weisselberg also became deeply involved in Trump’s personal finances over the years; among other things, he “paid household bills, made large purchases for Trump, and has communicated with Trump’s outside investment advisers.” 

Weisselberg was also the treasurer of the now-defunct Donald J. Trump Foundation. The charity is being sued by the state of New York for “extensive and persistent violations of state and federal law,” including allegedly using charity funds to support Trump’s presidential campaign. Weisselberg’s name notably showed up in an email Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski sent before the Iowa caucuses asking, “Is there any way we can make some disbursements this week while in Iowa? Specifically on Saturday.” 

Weisselberg has not been charged with anything, but his involvement with the investigation could open up new avenues for investigators.

Would that be the information he provided, or amended?  Or, amended again? And again? And again, and again, and again, etc.

Watergate was all about the coverup. It was never conclusively determined if Nixon knew about the break-in in advance. He certainly wasn't at the scene.

Russiagate - appears Trump knew in advance about the collusion, it's increasingly likely he personally met with the Russians. He is trying to cover it up.  There are a multitude of financial crimes to boot....and selling out America's interests to Russia. 

Right now, it looks like Watergate is chump change compared  to Trump's probable crimes.

I don't really care if Trump knew ahead of time, or for that matter, arranged the meeting. As long as those Russian kids found good families. That's what matters.

A trade of illegally gathered intelligence (that was the promise) for relaxing sanctions and on various named wealthy and powerful Russians. (Which was the only way to get Russian adoptions allowed again.) Hmmm. 

Or are you just Doggy-stylin. Q?

 

 

“never happened” just became “not illegal”

Here’s why it matters. When you work the angle that the Most Innocent Man in the GOP isn’t culpable for the acts of his subordinates when he had nothing to do with their actions and didn’t know what they were doing, folks who believe that foreign interference in our elections is bad can take this information and repeatedly ram it up your asshole sideways.

If is true that Trump was aware of the meeting, and that Cohen is willing to testify, it would be a dramatic development. Trump and his son have both denied that the father was aware of the meeting at the time. The White House said in July 2017, when the meeting was first reported, that the president had only recently learned about it. Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary the same thing in September 2017. Although he was not under oath, lying during that testimony would still be a criminal offense.

“He wasn't aware of it,” Trump Jr. said of his father. “And, frankly, by the time anyone was aware of it, which was summer of this year, as I stated earlier, I wouldn't have wanted to get him involved in it because it had nothing to do with him.”

Ok,  If Cohen is to be believed, possible perjury by Don Jr. wrt what Trump knew about the meeting.

No crime having to do with the meeting itself?

How and why  is Trump culpable for that?

Go back a few pages to the last time you were working this distraction. Or go back to something he said two years ago today when he solicited a bribe from a foreign power.

Every time more information about the missteps and deception of this crowd, it gets a bit worse.  You want to be specific about it didn't happen in just this way.  That's cool.

You don't think all of this is done, do you?  It's rolling, and gaining steam.

There you go Dogger. You should have waited for the Boss to give you the talking points. But they are out there now so get on board and carry them out to the end of the limb. Climb way out there with them....before the next leak.

Is there a crime in there?

There hasn't been a conviction yet. How can there be a crime?

Just another double-downed lie told by Trump and excused by the GOP.
