Admittedly, no one would trade places with Trump right now. Trump has Vlad threatening to release tapes and records of god only knows what, the rest of the Republican caucus crying about betrayal of the Kurds, all while facing an impeachment inquiry with fresh new firsthand witnesses. It is not a good day to be Donald Trump. And it shows. Let’s start with projection, it is always safe for an aspiring dictator to threaten one’s opponents with the same crime for which one is accused. Except, perhaps do it with some circumspection? At least make it sound plausible? No, not Trump, he must accuse Nancy Pelosi of treason. ….This makes Nervous Nancy every bit as guilty as Liddle’ Adam Schiff for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and even Treason. I guess that means that they, along with all of those that evilly “Colluded” with them, must all be immediately Impeached! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2019 This is, of course, insane. “Every bit as guilty “for” high crimes and misdemeanors, and even Treason.” And then he calls for the impeachment of people who cannot be impeached. *Pro-Tip, Ace, yeah, you – Trump, if you think they committed crimes, your Attorney General is supposed to go and charge them. That is actually “okay” in the constitution. After all, your DOJ charged two Republicans in 2018 of corruption, that is the way to do it. Problem being, of course, neither Schiff nor Pelosi committed a crime and Trump knows it. So, this is even more insane than one might think on first brush. Then there is his defense of his betrayal with the Kurds. He is really in it this time, because he clearly pulled out to please Vladimir, and enraged Republican allies by doing it. So Trump tells us that his move is going to really piss the Russians off: I was elected on getting out of these ridiculous endless wars, where our great Military functions as a policing operation to the benefit of people who don’t even like the USA. The two most unhappy countries at this move are Russia & China, because they love seeing us bogged….. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2019 ….down, watching over a quagmire, & spending big dollars to do so. When I took over, our Military was totally depleted. Now it is stronger than ever before. The endless and ridiculous wars are ENDING! We will be focused on the big picture, knowing we can always go back & BLAST! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2019 We can always “go back and BLAST” ??? From the American president? And sure, everyone believes Russia is furious, because that’s what you do, Ace. And this will live right up there in infamy with “very stable genius”: As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over… — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2019 Getting away from the Kurds put Trump’s “mind” on his money, specifically, government records of his money – taxes. Trump took a 70 page judicial ruling up his rear this morning, […]
Presidential and Vice-Presidential audits are mandatory. According to an anonymous male IRS official, a political appointee in the IRS “attempted to meddled” in the audit of either Trump or Pence’s taxes from this last year. The whistleblower came forward to speak to the Washington Post, giving few substantive details, but expressing some well-founded concern about the whistleblower process itself: His complaint focuses on allegations that at least one political appointee at the Treasury Department attempted to interfere with the IRS’s mandatory audit process, in which it audits the tax returns of the president and vice president each year. The tipster is reportedly speaking to the Washington Post, and declined to tell the newspaper about the details of the complaint. “I steadfastly refuse to discuss the substance or details of the complaint, but I have some legitimate concerns about reckless statements being made about whistleblowers,” he told the newspaper. The whistleblower is going to adhere to the law to the letter, but he’s not going to let anyone call him a “spy” or political traitor, that much seems certain. Without engaging in toooo much speculation, if I had to pick whether the audit concerned Trump or Pence, my money would be on the guy who has steadfastly refused – sued, even, to keep a court from ordering otherwise – to turn over his taxes, and has been legitimately accused of making boatloads of money off “being president.” Sure, it could be Pence, but … But, the entire reason that we have not had hearings on this particular whistleblower complaint is …. House Ways and Means Chair Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA) received the complaint on July 29, and told a federal judge about it in August as part of a lawsuit that seeks to force the Trump administration to comply with the committee’s demand for the President’s tax returns. I am guessing. But, my guess is that the whistleblower – in wanting to adhere to the law – did not yet want to finger the president, and thus put forth the “either/or” thing. Because I cannot for the life of me figure out why the whistleblower complaint would assist in Rep. Richard Neal’s lawsuit to force Trump to hand over his tax returns to the congressional committee, if the complaint didn’t involve Trump. But that’s just me. **** Peace, y’all Jason firstname.lastname@example.org and on Twitter @MiciakZoom
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
