The final “straw”?

When it comes to the events of the last 10 days, to borrow a phrase from Rachel Maddow, “Stick a pin in this.” And no, I don’t mean everything that has happened in the last 10 days, you’d need a cork board the size of Oklahoma. But over the last little while, there has been a series of events, coming from one particular source, that when taken separately, seem to be only mildly interesting anomalies, but when combined together, may well suggest a sea change. It seems to me that Donald J Trump, Pestquire, appears to be on the way to losing his grip on the GPO Senate. No, they’re by no means ready to impeach him yet, but the signs are starting to appear that GOP Senators are more open to acts of defiance against Trump. Personally, I think that at least some of this is due to the results of the midterms. Beto’s stronger than expected showing in Texas against “Calgary” Teddy Cruz showed weakness. He lost seats he campaigned like hell for in West Virginia, Montana, and Arizona, incoming Florida senator Rick Scott kept His Lowness at a double arms length distance, and Mitt Romney winning in Utah is going to leave him one short in the “congenital flunky” department, with the departure of Orrin Hatch. 22 GOP Senators up for reelection in 2020 have come, or are starting to come to terms with the fact that Trump’s coattails are not as long as they had hoped. In the last 10 days, the GOP dominated senate has handed Trump one stinging rebuke after another, and done so in public. Here are just a few examples; Not only did the US Senate rebuke Trump for his inherent chumminess with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, by passing a resolution condemning the kingdom, they took the extra step of declaring that they found the Crown Prince directly responsible for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. This sent a strong message that as far as the Senate is concerned, Saudi Arabia is on probation, whether Trump likes it or not. Outgoing GOP Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, all by his little lonesome, managed to put the kibosh on at least 23 judicial nominees that Trump and McConnell had planned on ramming through before the holiday break. I am not a senate scholar, so I’ll leave it up to someone more experienced to enlighten me in the comments, but considering that when McConnell gavels the Senate into recess, when they adjourn, they will not come back in session until the new class is sworn in, I’m not sure whether these judicial nominees will have to go through their judicial committee nominations again or not. Following Trump’s moronic, and seemingly gratuitous decision to yank all 2,00 of our remaining troops out of Syria, like they had reached the end of an invisible political bungee cord, , several GOP senators, including some who will return to Washington in January, slammed Trump for the ill advised move. My favorite was Lindsey Graham, stating in the well of the Senate that Trump’s contention that we had defeated ISIS was “fake news.” Trump could not have been more clear in his nationally televised hissy fit with “Chuck and Nancy,” if he didn’t get the $5  billion in funding for the wall […]

Adam Schiff Planning His Own Investigation, One That Will Make Mueller’s “Look Like Child’s...

Soon-to-be chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, is preparing to delve deep into Donald Trump’s criminal activity in a way that could make the Mueller probe “look like child’s play”. According to The New Yorker, Trump said that he believes his personal finances should be off-limits to investigators and that if Robert Mueller sought to investigate the Trump family’s business dealings he would be crossing a “red line.” Well, Adam Schiff not only wants to launch an investigation that will be parallel to Mueller’s but as the New Yorker added in their recent article, “As Schiff described his approach, it became clear that he wasn’t just planning to cross Trump’s red line—he intended to obliterate it.” He also recently said, “I think the Justice Department needs to reexamine that OLC opinion – Office of Legal Counsel opinion – that you cannot indict a sitting president.” Rep. Adam Schiff: "I think the Justice Department needs to reexamine that OLC opinion – Office of Legal Counsel opinion – that you cannot indict a sitting president." https://t.co/QBKzIH7DFt pic.twitter.com/MHiDcm5SzV — The Hill (@thehill) December 13, 2018 This January is going to be SO MUCH FUN! Keep your eyes on Schiff.  He is on a mission to get the imposter out of the Oval office.

The five most important words of the day. Or maybe the Trump Presidency.

Donald John Trump is a liar. This is not breaking news, instead it is ancient history. And because he is so obsessive about it, it has become almost as blase and expected as a fortune cookie after a Chinese dinner. But, in response to Michael Cohen’s guilty plea in federal court today to lying to congress, Trump accidentally spoke the truth, and that one accidental truth could place his presidency on a collision course with his incessant lies. There are two things about Trump’s constant lies that are fundamental to his very character, and they’re important to remember. One, Trump lies because he can get away with it. Donald Trump lies about everything, and has done so from his first days in business. He lies about his wealth, he lies about the size and scope of his projects, he lies about his company, and if you listen to Stormy Daniels, he lies about the size of his dick. Find me another person n the planet who faked being his own PR shill to lie to the tabloids. And because he lies so constantly, and so outrageously, about things that can easily be disproven, he pays no penalty. It becomes just another aspect of his quirky personality, it’s baked into the cake. Second, and of equal importance, Trump has never had to pay a price for his lies. Lies about his personal life are not a bug, they’re a feature. Trump likes to consider himself a sort of raconteur, a wealthy playboy with a taste for the finer things in life, especially where women are concerned. The fact that he is a serial adulterer only makes him more envious to others in his own, childish mind. And as for lying in his business dealings, there is no one to hold him accountable. His organization is a mom and pop operation. He has no board to answer to, no shareholders. He can lie with impunity. And if one of those lies causes him legal troubles? Then he can simply buy his way quietly out of it, and nobody is the wiser, nor does it affect him. Trump’s personal belief in his infallibility when it comes to the truth has been manifested over and over again in his presidency. The now infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son and a Russian lawyer is a classic example. First, there was no meeting, and then there was a meeting, but it was about Russian adoption. Then, maybe it was about dirt on Hillary, but the Russians never delivered. And finally it was, “So what if it was, everybody does it.” And thanks to a feckless GOP dominated congress, upon further video review, the play stood as called. Which beings us to today’s falling-domino-effect utterance by Trump.When asked by reporters about Michael Cohen’s allegation that, contrary to his previous statements, Trump had pursued a Trump Tower Moscow plan long after he categorically stated he had dropped it, Trump said something akin to,”So what if I did? At the time I wasn’t President. I was allowed to run my business during the campaign, and there was a good chance that I’d end up as a private citizen. What was I supposed to do, not pursue opportunities?” And there you have it, the five words that could bring down the Trump […]
