Let The Games Begin

Now that the Trump trial has come to an end……and now the retaliation may begin…..

Trump’s sack holder in the Senate Lindsey Graham has issued a Trumpite threat for 2022…..in an interview on FOX News (where else?)…..

Lindsey Graham gave a wide-ranging interview on Fox News Sunday all about the impeachment trial, a day after it ended in acquittal for former President Trump. Some of the topics the South Carolina senator touched on:

  • Trump’s reaction to the verdict: Trump “was grateful to his lawyers” and “appreciated the help that all of us provided,” Graham said, per the Hill, adding that the former president was “ready to move on and rebuild the Republican Party” and “excited about 2022,” though he was also “mad at some folks.”
  • Mad at who? Graham didn’t specify whether Mitch McConnell was one of those people, but he did say of the Senate minority leader’s speech condemning Trump (even after McConnell voted to acquit): “I think Sen. McConnell’s speech—he got a load off his chest but unfortunately put a load on the back of Republicans. That speech you will see in 2022 campaigns. I would imagine if you’re a Republican running in Georgia, Arizona, New Hampshire, where we have a chance to take back the Senate, they may be playing Sen. McConnell’s speech and asking you about it if you’re a candidate.”
  • Retribution? Graham warned that Democrats had set a dangerous precedent with the trial, the New York Post reports. “If you use this model, I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if the Republicans take over the House,” he said. “Because she actually bailed out rioters and one of the rioters went back to the streets and broke somebody’s head open. So we’ve opened Pandora’s Box here and I’m sad for the country.” He was referring to the now-VP’s support of the Minnesota Freedom Fund back in June, before she became now-President Joe Biden’s running mate. She encouraged people to donate to the fund, which helped Black Lives Matter protesters to post bail. It’s not clear what he was referring to with his “broke somebody’s head open” comment.
  • The phone call: With regard to the phone call in which Trump reportedly told House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy the rioters at the US Capitol cared more about the results of the election than McCarthy did, Graham dismissed it as “hearsay.” He acknowledged the former president “bears responsibility of pushing narratives about the election that I think are not sound and not true,” he said, but that is “politically protected speech.”
  • Lara Trump: Graham said the former president’s daughter-in-law, wife of Eric Trump, stands to gain quite a bit from this whole thing. “The biggest winner of this whole impeachment trial is Lara Trump,” Graham said, per Slate. “My dear friend Richard Burr, [the North Carolina senator who voted to convict Trump], just made Lara Trump almost the certain nominee for the Senate seat in North Carolina to replace him if she runs.”

A vindictive tit for tat from the Trump party of mindless and spineless slugs.

Reemergence And Retribution

As the Senate Trial of Trump is entering the final stage……Americans hold their breath waiting for the outcome…but they are not alone…..

He, Trump, is waiting in the shadows for now….waiting for the end of the trial….waiting for the chance to reemerge and doll out his retribution…..

He being Donald the Orange.

He is waiting to consolidate is iron grip on the GOP….and then he can doll out retribution on all those that he perceives as disloyal.

Only logical because he did so as president to those people that within the GOP that did not give him the support he thought he deserved.

He will step out of the shadows after te trial and return to his former self.

Now, heading into what could have been an historic bipartisan rebuke, the former president and his team are confident both of his acquittal and that he’ll come out of the trial with his influence over the Republican party all but cemented.

“He’s Teflon, right. It’s been a month since the Capitol riot and I would say, for the most part, the GOP has coalesced back behind him,” said a former Trump campaign official.

Already, Trump aides contend, the impeachment process has proved beneficial to the ex-president — exposing disloyalty within the party’s ranks and igniting grassroots backlash against Republicans who have attempted to nudge the GOP base away from Trump. Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse spent last week fending off constituent criticisms and censures from state party officials after he compared Trumpism to “a civic cancer for the nation.” And Trump’s allies believe the ex-president’s impending impeachment trial will further illuminate who the turncoats are.

“It’s going to help expose more bad apples that he can primary if any senators vote to convict,” added the former campaign official.

https://www.politico.com/news/2021/02/09/trump-impeachment-reputation-467825

We all know that the day of reckoning is approach and soon he will exact his retribution on those that wronged him.

Will his antics finally drive that last nail inn the coffin of the GOP?

Some say yes….but I say NO way…..this is the GOP of today and the amount of supporters show their popularity with the people.

Be prepared for more Trumpian antics……he will NOT be silenced.

06Jan21–A Day In Infamy

We had one when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and now the next Day Of Infamy is upon us…..Pearl was an attack on the country from a foreign entity…..this time it will an attack on the very structure of our republic.

06 January is the date that the Congress meets to certify the electoral win for Joe Biden but there are some within our government, that will work to deny the win by Biden….

The latest traitor to the American system is Se. Ted Cruz….along with 11 other GOP Senators…..

Acknowledging that their effort to keep President-elect Joe Biden from assuming office is unlikely to succeed, 11 Republican senators committed anyway Saturday to voting to reject Electoral College votes on Wednesday. The group said in a joint statement that a commission should be appointed by Congresss “to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states,” the Hill reports. Once the states have the findings, their legislatures could hold a special session to consider changing their electoral votes. “Accordingly, we intend to vote on Jan. 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified'” until the audit is in. The statement was signed by Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, James Lankford of Oklahoma, Steve Daines of Montana, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee and Mike Braun of Indiana. Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Roger Marshall of Kansas, Bill Hagerty of Tennessee and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama also were listed.

This is what Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was hoping to avoid, per Axios. Republicans facing reelection in two years now will have to go on record as opposing President Trump’s wishes to fight Biden’s victory or as endorsing the battle cry of election fraud. Many of them already have rejected that notion. “We are not naïve,” the statement issued Saturday said. “We fully expect most if not all Democrats, and perhaps more than a few Republicans, to vote otherwise.” Individual Republicans have said as much. “In the end, I don’t think it changes anything,” Sen. John Thune said. Sen. Ben Sasse said it’s a stunt to help presidential hopefuls win over Trump’s supporters. Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri was the first senator to say he’d object; the 11 senators plan to cite more specific grounds for their votes. The announcement of the state-by-state election results will be made in a joint session of Congress on Wednesday.

Then there are those representatives in the House that are part of this circus….like Gohmert (a d/bag from the word go)……

A federal appeals court has thrown out GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert’s last-ditch attempt to subvert President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, his second rejection in two days in the Texas lawmaker’s attempt to empower Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the results.

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals gave very short shrift to Gohmert’s legal effort, dismissing it summarily in a one-paragraph opinion issued Saturday evening.

The unsigned decision noted the district court‘s ruling that Gohmert and 11 Arizona Republicans — who would have been electors for President Donald Trump — lacked legal standing to pursue the case.

https://www.newsbreak.com/news/2137193339126/judge-throws-out-gohmert-suit-aimed-at-empowering-pence-to-overturn-2020-election-results

And Gohmert is not alone in the House…..at least 140 GOP representatives will likely vote against the certification of the the Biden win……

At least 140 House Republicans are planning to vote against counting electoral votes that would certify the election for President-elect Joe Biden, two Republican congressmen told CNN

Biden won 306 electoral votes, well over the 270 needed to secure the US presidency, and flipped five states that in 2016 voted for Trump. 

https://www.businessinsider.com/140-house-republicans-to-vote-against-biden-electoral-college-confirmation-2020-12

Noe VP Pence has signed onto the silliness and the traitorous actions….

Vice President Mike Pence, who will be presiding over the joint session of Congress on Wednesday and is required to announce Biden as the winner, has endorsed the effort, the New York Times reports. Pence “shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election,” a statement by his chief of staff says, adding that he “welcomes the efforts of members of the House and Senate to use the authority they have under the law to raise objections and bring forward evidence before the Congress and the American people on Jan. 6th.” A dozen Republican senators have said they’ll object to the electoral results.

President Trump’s team welcomed GOP senators’ plans, per CNBC. “It’s encouraging to see so many patriots step up and demand an investigation into the rampant voter fraud and irregularities we saw on November 3rd,” said Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser to the campaign. “Our country will love them for it!” Trump tweeted. But the objections have “zero chance of succeeding,” an election law expert wrote on CNN, though they’re nonetheless dangerous. “American democracy cannot survive the losing party refusing to accept defeat,” Joshua A. Douglas said. It’s “an attempt to subvert the will of the voters,” Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar said, pointing out that the votes of millions of Americans have been “counted, recounted, litigated, and state-certified.” Republican Sen. Mitt Romney said, “I could never have imagined seeing these things in the greatest democracy in the world.”

Sorry Mitt but that label may not long apply to the US.

Here’s a thought…..as per the Constitution if Biden cannot be certified as the winner of the 2020 election then…Speaker Pelosi becomes acting president….is that really what the GOP truly wants.

All this is a silly political game to move the narrative forward that there was massive voter fraud….of which there has been NO proof….most any on the minor lapses were committed by GOP operatives not the people voting…..but that somehow is never the story being told.

As far as I am concerned these people are TRAITORS they are violating their oath of office and should suffer dire consequences for their betrayals.

This day too shall live in INFAMY…..the day when elected officials betrayed their country for some minor demagogue.

Hold these toads responsible for their ill-advised actions!

06Jan21–What To Expect

The Georgia election and the the theater of the absurd in the Congress…..

Today is the big day….the day when idiots will try to shanghai the Constitution and attempt to not certify the Biden win of the presidency.

But what can we expect from the Congress/

By now, everyone knows the drill: Congress meets Wednesday to formally certify the electoral college results, with VP Mike Pence scheduled to preside. This is normally routine stuff, with the joint session lasting all of 23 minutes in 2013 and 41 minutes in 2017, notes CBS News. But the 2021 version is expected to last all day and possibly into the wee hours of Thursday morning because of Republican objections on behalf of President Trump. Coverage:

  • The schedule: Congress convenes at 1pm Eastern, and Republicans are expected to challenge the results in six states (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin), per NBC News. Each objection can be debated up to two hours, meaning it’s possible the session will go longer than 12 hours.
  • The process: States are called one by one, alphabetically. If things follow the normal procedure, a clerk will hand Pence an envelope with the state’s electoral vote count, and he will read it aloud, explains the Washington Post. Congress then votes on whether to accept the results.
  • Objections: For the six states in question, one member from the House and one from the Senate must raise an objection for a challenge to proceed. At that point, the chambers break off to separately debate it. Then each chamber votes on whether to sustain the objection, with a simple majority prevailing, per NPR. It’s possible an objection might clear the Senate, though it’s all but impossible in the Democratic-controlled House. Because an objection must clear both chambers to succeed, the effort is widely seen as a futile one for Trump’s allies.
  • So far: As of Tuesday, we know this of the GOP senators: Ted Cruz will object to Arizona’s results, Josh Hawley to Pennsylvania’s, and Kelly Loeffler to Georgia’s, reports the Post.
  • Pence’s role: President Trump and his allies think otherwise, but an explainer at New York concludes that Pence doesn’t have the power to override results in favor of the president. “According to law and precedent, Pence is confined to the merely administrative chore of opening the certifications state elected officials have sent to Congress, arranging for their tabulation and then noting any challenges to a given state’s announced electors from members of Congress.”

There you have what to expect today…….more on this Day of Infamy next post.

Let the circus begin!

Pandemic Board Game

We all are well aware just how catastrophic this Covid-19 has been on the world……in the US the totals so far…..Cases–11+ million…..Deaths–

This is the weekend and for those that are still in isolation…..maybe playing board games…..

This game is from 2017 and is very telling…..

A game?

2020, for reasons we don’t have to specify, has seen a big resurgence in pandemic-themed entertainment. Films like Outbreak and Contagion have found new life, as has anything else that depicted a viral pandemic in a fictional context. This includes board games. Specifically, we’re talking about this Pandemic board game from Z-Man Games. It’s only a few years old, but it’s newly relevant, thanks to, uh, current events.

Everyone in the world’s now learning the hard way how important it is for governments to be prepared for the possibility of a global pandemic. But players of Pandemicalready knew this. That’s because the game is all about letting players cooperate as members of a team, devoted to fighting worldwide outbreaks. Here’s the official synopsis of what the game is all about:

“Four diseases have broken out in the world and it is up to a team of specialists in various fields to find cures for these diseases before mankind is wiped out. Players must work together playing to their characters’ strengths and planning their strategy of eradication before the diseases overwhelm the world with ever-increasing outbreaks. For example the operation specialist can build research stations which are needed to find cures for the diseases. The Scientist needs only 4 cards of a particular disease to cure it instead of the normal 5. But the diseases are outbreaking fast and time is running out: The team must try to stem the tide of infection in diseased areas while also towards cures. A truly cooperative game where you all win or you all lose.”

https://futurism.com/pandemic-board-game

Even a dunce could have found a  way to defeat this disease but not our fearless leader….he was too busy being a douche to protect the people and find a cure….

Be well….Be Safe….

Hunter Is A Biden

There has been lots of accusations about Hunter Biden’s business dealings…all of the theatrics and drama is just retaliation for the shots fired at Trump by Dems…..especially the impeachment BS…..all this is just silly and meant to divert attention of the low IQ voters.

The Senate, in GOP hands for now, will try to start the investigation process of Hunter Biden..

A search of Justice Department databases reveals that Hunter Biden failed to register as a foreign agent while promoting the interests of foreign business partners in Washington, including brokering meetings with his father and other government officials, and RealClear Investigations has learned that at least one Senate committee is investigating whether Joe Biden’s son violated federal laws requiring disclosure of such foreign contacts.

The Obama administration did not prosecute Hunter Biden for potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, despite its much more aggressive pursuit of FARA cases relative to other administrations — including its opening of criminal investigations on no fewer than six Trump campaign advisers in 2016.

One of them, Paul Manafort, ended up in prison on charges that included failing to publicly disclose his lobbying on behalf of Ukrainian clients and partners. Newly discovered April 2015 emails show Hunter Biden appeared to be helping a Ukrainian energy executive meet with and lobby his father, who was vice president at the time. Hunter, who held a lucrative seat on the board of Ukrainian gas giant Burisma at the time, also sought meetings with State Department officials.

https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2020/10/27/senate_probes_hunter_bidens_failure_to_register_as_foreign_agent_125798.html

Trumpian sycophants are doing the heavy lifting for Trump while he tries to con the voters….

Former Trump adviser and former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell on Tuesday suggested that soon-to-be-released audio tapes will “prove” that Joe Biden was aware of his son Hunter’s business suspicious business dealings with foreign agents in contradiction of Biden’s earlier denials to that effect.

Grenell made that revelation while speaking with Just the News host David Brody on “The Water Cooler” on Tuesday afternoon.

“I understand that there’s some recordings that are going to come out of attorneys from Joe Biden and Hunter Biden … that prove they knew about this scheme,” he told Brody.

https://justthenews.com/trump-adviser-says-soon-be-released-hunter-biden-tapes-are-next-shoe-fall

The Trumpian news sources are trying to define the Biden story before the election…..

The Wall Street Journal and Fox News have both reported finding no evidence that former Vice President Joe Biden benefited from the Hunter Biden business dealings that have drawn scrutiny. More explicitly pro-Trump media outlets — OAN, Breitbart, Newsmax — have mostly shied away from publishing fresher, more salacious allegations. And conservative talking heads — pundits, politicians and loud MAGA Twitter personalities alike — have been more focused on the meta narrative around the laptop, arguing that mainstream media, social media companies and the deep state are conspiring to prevent President Donald Trump’s reelection by suppressing the story.

When Breitbart did touch on new revelations, it preemptively distanced itself, carefully framing a fresh trove of emails as an independent investigation by Peter Schweizer, author of “Clinton Cash,” the 2015 look into the Clinton family’s extensive foreign financial ties that made several overstated or inaccurate claims.

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/10/28/trump-conspiracy-theoryhunter-biden-433131

All this silliness and ignorant BS got me want to comment….but I found someone that had the perfect response to this bullshit…..https://rudepundit.blogspot.com/

The response begins….

Note to Republicans: No One Gives a Shit About Hunter Biden’s Business Deals

 
Yeah, Republicans and their right-wing media co-conspirators have tried to desperately rub the limp stories of the business dealings of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, into a full-on scandal erection, but that dick won’t fuck this time. And it’s frankly shocking considering the record that the GOP has in fluffing flaccid fairy tales into career-killing crisis cum. Just in recent years, you’ve had the Swift Boat Vets lies about John Kerry. And you had the decades of utter nonsense about Hillary Clinton, Travelgate to Benghazi to But Her Emails. 
 
Encouragingly, no one is falling for it this time. And that’s a tribute to a few things.
 
Perfect response to the theatrics and the retaliation…..games played by immature garden slugs that pretend to be politicians.

Dems Play Games

I have often said that I think our Congress is a waste of time and money…..they spend more time running to a camera or massaging the genitals of donors or playing silly games.

The newest game is by the Dems on the SCOTUS committee vote…..

The Senate Judiciary Committee is due to vote Thursday on advancing the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court—but the panel’s 10 Democrats will not be present. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats on the committee said Wednesday that Democrats will boycott the hearing to protest the “sham process” of rushing Barrett’s nomination through, the Hill reports. “We will not grant this process any further legitimacy by participating in a committee markup of this nomination just twelve days before the culmination of an election that is already underway,” they said in a statement.

The Democrats said Republicans were violating the “promises and rules” they established in refusing to grant Obama nominee Merrick Garland a hearing in the nine months before the 2016 election. The Democrats said Judiciary Committee rules require two members of the minority party to be present when business is conducted, but committee chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham said he would proceed without them, NPR reports. “I will move forward,” the Republican said. “She deserves a vote.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has signaled that he wants to hold a full Senate vote on Barrett’s nomination Monday, which would install the conservative justice on the court in time to rule on election-related cases.

The Dems are by NO means the only game players…..

This theatrics will accomplish nothing…..the nominee will go to Senate for a vote……and the Dems will look like pouty little brats.

It is stunts like this that I say the Congress is a pack of tired old political d/bags.

And the GOP is just as guilty….McConnell is playing a game for this nomination as well…..but he is playing with lives…..

Senate Majority Mitch McConnell told his Republican colleagues Tuesday that he has privately been urging the Trump White House not to strike a coronavirus relief deal with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi before the November 3 election, warning that an agreement could interfere with his chamber’s plan to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court early next week.

McConnell’s remarks, first reported by the Washington Post, came during a closed-door Senate GOP lunch just ahead of a Tuesday evening deadline for a relief deal set by Pelosi and agreed to by the Trump administration. While the deadline came and went without a deal, the House Speaker told Democratic lawmakers late Tuesday that the two sides “have been making some progress” and continued to voice optimism that “we can reach an agreement before the election.”

Let’s Form A Commission

Good grief we have been fighting for racial equality for how long?

And in the 21st century we have come back to the bad old days of the 1960s and the fight for equality and the end of racism…..and the civil rights movement thought they had accomplished that with the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act……but apparently nothing was truly settled in those days with those Acts.

I know let’s form a commission to get to the bottom of this problem.  Seriously?  A Commission?  Action to let politicians feel good about their cowardice.

That seems to be the reaction that all politicians have to the spiraling violence centered around the deaths of black citizens…..Trump has a plan, Dems have a plan and the GOP has a plan….https://lobotero.com/2020/06/19/gop-answer-to-police-violence/……..and all of them basically call for a commission or study group or whatever the politically correct term is these days….but in reality they are just giving a delaying game in the hopes cooler heads will prevail……in other words they are calling for what they always call for….INACTION!

There is nothing new about these calls for a “commission”…..it has been going on since the 1960s….and look where we are today…..fighting the same battles they fought in the 60s…..where’s the progress?

There’s a limit to the relevance of the so-called race riots of the nineteen-sixties to the protests of the moment. But the tragedy is: they’re not irrelevant. Nor is the history that came before. The language changes, from “insurrection” to “uprising” to the bureaucratic “civil disorder,” terms used to describe everything from organized resistance to mayhem. But, nearly always, they leave a bloody trail in the historical record, in the form of government reports. The Kerner Report followed centuries of official and generally hysterical government inquiries into black rebellion, from the unhinged “A Journal of the proceedings in the Detection of the Conspiracy formed by some White People, in conjunction with Negro and other Slaves, for burning the City of New-York in America, and murdering the Inhabitants,” in 1744, to the largely fabricated “Official Report of the Trials of Sundry Negroes, charged with an attempt to raise an insurrection in the state of South-Carolina,” in 1822. The white editor of the as-told-to (and highly dubious) “The Confessions of Nat Turner, the Leader of the Late Insurrection in Southampton, Va. . . . also, An Authentic Account of the Whole Insurrection, with Lists of the Whites Who Were Murdered . . . ,” in 1831, wrote, “Public curiosity has been on the stretch to understand the origin and progress of this dreadful conspiracy, and the motives which influences its diabolical actors.” What happened? Why did it happen? What can be done to prevent it from happening again and again?

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/06/22/the-history-of-the-riot-report

Now is not the time to be faint at heart…..protesters MUST not settle for talk…..they have in the past and look where we are today.

Stay in the streets!

Do Not Settle!

“lego ergo scribo”

And The Winner Will Be

As we draw ever close to the official start of the voting process…there are a few points that I wish to make…..

It is of little secret that I think the MSM is not a source for viable information only what the corporate overlords wants us to know……that is why we get mind numbing celeb news while the world is set for a blaze of epic proportions.

Then there is our elections when we decide who will represent us on the world stage….and the MSM has their finger on the scale there as well.

First it is their, the media, constant lie about the “electability ” of the candidate……more on that to save space……https://lobotero.com/2019/07/16/electability-the-lie-that-keeps-on-giving/

The MSM has convincing the country that Biden is the man to beat as far as the Dem races go…..they are predicting the winner before any of the primaries and caucuses have begun.

Biden’s electability rests on the assumption that Democrats will rally around whomever their party’s nominee is in their desperation to beat Trump, but only the former vice president is capable of winning over most independents and peeling enough Republicans away from Trump to ensure he loses reelection. If this sounds like the same type of pandering to white, middle-aged voters that centrist Democrats love to trot out every election to justify their insipid reformist policies, it is precisely that.

Let’s Stop Trying to Predict Who Can Beat Trump

Next is the DNC and the DCCC…..these political groups are doing all they can to appear democratic while deciding for the voter who their candidates will be….look at the next debate…..they made the rules to make damn sure centrists/corporatists are the majority of the party’s representatives…..and the move toward total control…..

This first became evident in March when DCCC Chair Cheri Bustos announced a “blacklist” policy, which sought to stifle the people-powered democratic process by requiring political consultants to sign a loyalty pledge to incumbent Democrats. Recent comments from black and Latino lawmakers about a lack of diversity in senior leadership, as well as complaints about a tone-deaf approach to issues relating to race, show that the DCCC continues to refuse to evolve and change. Instead, there seems to be an implicit policy of silencing new voices and sidelining historically marginalized communities in order to protect the power of the status quo.

https://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/08/16/dccc-out-step-democratic-values

The DNC/DCCC is out of step and the media is doing all they can to help these groups retain their influence over voters.

Personally, I have NEVER let another group pick my candidate for me…..neither should you…..especially when a loyalty pledge is required.  I refuse to allow a poll of 250 people tell me who to vote for….neither should you.

Democrats have excellent ideas….but they SUCK at the game of politics.

Micheal Moore see the final as I do……

Progressive filmmaker Michael Moore is predicting that the 2020 presidential election will result in Donald Trump winning a second term if Democrats nominate a “centrist, moderate” candidate, telling Democracy Now! that the president’s base is “more rabid” than in 2016 during a Thursday interview.

Moore, famous for films like Bowling for Columbine and, most recently, the Trump-focused documentary Fahrenheit 11/9, said the main “problem” Democrats are facing in 2020 is the fact that Trump’s voters have maintained their ardent support three years after he defeated Hillary Clinton.

The documentarian claimed that Trump would win “if the election were held today,” before noting that the electoral college system is the chief issue for Democrats: “Hillary won by 3 million popular votes. I believe whoever the Democrat is next year is going to win by 4 to 5 million popular votes. There’s no question in my mind that people who stayed home, who sat on the bench, they’re going to pour out … there’s going to be a much higher percentage of people voting against him.”

A Letter From The Edge

Or….My Baby Wrote Me A Letter!  (sorry had to channel my 60s experience)……

The news has been full of the report that Trump has written (?) a letter to Pelosi ahead of the impeachment vote…..

Trump rattled on…the same song that his Tweets reflect…..

Nancy Pelosi was on the receiving end of what the Washington Post calls an “extraordinary letter” written by President Trump. Over six pages that you can read in full here, he voices his “strongest and most powerful protest” against impeachment, writing that “this impeachment represents an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat Lawmakers, unequaled in nearly two and a half centuries of American legislative history.” The AP reports that the “fiery” letter, which comes a day before his expected impeachment, voices Trump’s displeasure at how the House inquiry was handled, alleging “more due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials.”

Trump writes that the Articles of Impeachment that the House Judiciary Committee has come up with “include no crimes, no misdemeanors, and no offenses whatsoever. You have cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!” He addresses the claims of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress at length, then goes on to tout a long list of successes that have occurred in his term, writing, “you and your party are desperate to distract” from them. He expresses that he doesn’t believe his letter will change anything, but that he wanted to record his objections “for the purpose of history. … One hundred years from now, when people look back at this affair, I want them to understand it, and learn from it, so that it can never happen to another President again.”

I really would like to hear what my readers think about this letter…it is not a long read….only about 6 pages……

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Madam Speaker:

I write to express my strongest and most powerful protest against the partisan impeachment crusade being pursued by the Democrats in the House of Representatives. This impeachment represents an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat Lawmakers, unequaled in nearly two and a half centuries of American legislative history.

The Articles of Impeachment introduced by the House Judiciary Committee are not recognizable under any standard of Constitutional theory, interpretation, or jurisprudence. They include no crimes, no misdemeanors, and no offenses whatsoever. You have cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!

…Read On….

Did you read?

Whatcha think?

My thoughts is it should have been left un-mailed…..it makes the president look like a childish d/bag….it is a rambling piece of manure that would be better on the rally trail and not in the House.

It sounds more like someone afraid their “brand” will be tainted….he keeps thinking that his legacy will always have a stigma about it with a asterisk after his name….a stain on his person.

But that is just me.
