A chaotic power grab.

TWEET MEWatching what is happening to us in America, you can't help but think that we are getting closer to that civil war that every sane person has been dreading, and what people on the extreme end of each political side has been hoping for.

Knowing that he will never get  sixty five percent of the people in this country to support him,  Donald J. trump is hoping for a civil war, or a serous Constitutional crises. Anything to get his rabid and clueless supporters in a we against them Mexican standoff that can possibly keep him in office beyond the four years that he is inevitably going to be given. He wants more, and if he takes the republic down with him, then so be it.

The president has now declared war on his own FBI, and he  is demanding that they launch an investigation into the agency and the man charged with investigating him. It's madness, I know, but this is where we are now.

trump says that the man who occupies a permanent space in his head, Barack Obama, ordered spies on his campaign, and he wants to get to the bottom of it. The entire assertion is laughable, but no one is laughing. The republican partisans in Washington have gone along with him, and they will be given a special briefing and given access to information about the FBI surveillance of trump's joint campaign with the Russians. Incredibly, the democrats in Washington will be shut out of the very same meeting.

Anyway, Mr. trump is getting away with all this because the press that we rely on to put a check on his power grab, have been complicit and lazy. Throw in the fact that he has an entire network and a solid 35% of hardcore trumpbots in his corner, and you can see why I believe that something very ominous is on the horizon.

Speaking of something ominous, if you are Michael Cohen, you have to think that your business partner cutting a deal with the law enforcement authorities ( I see you Mr. Mueller) today is the worst thing possible for you.

Apparently he will be singing like Gladys Night in exchange for probation instead of a possible 20 plus years in the big house.

Expect an angry twitter storm from the White House in 5..4..3..

As Trump rants about FBI traitors under the bed, please not that he is failing all over the place.

He's retreated on his trade renegotiation after China told him, Hell No, they will not put up with his bullshit.

Kim Jong Un is saying, oh, by give up our nukes, you actually meant give up our nukes? So sowwy, we will not be doing that.

So his big hypernationalist offensive to stick it to the evil foreigners has turned out to be a big fat goose egg. America has not gained anything from his efforts, and never will.

Trump's actual "accomplishments"? Tax cuts for rich people who don't deserve more. A bonfire of regulations that were put in place to protect all of us. And tons and tons of corruption, incompetence, and racism.

It has now been revealed that the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign using utterly corrupt and lawless intelligence agencies. But Field thinks the Constitutional Crisis is Trump using what is left of the rule of law to go after the perpetrators of the worst scandal in American history.

You have zero integrity. But we knew that.

Laughable? Even the New York Times has acknowledged that the Obama DOJ put spies in Trump's campaign. And wiretapped him. Are you seriously suggesting Obama himself did not approve this?

Methinks your laughter betrays deep nervousness.

Don't worry, even though Obama's crimes probably merit hanging, 2018 America could never mete out the kind of punishment the Black Messiah deserves. But his legacy will be to be remembered as the head of the most corrupt administration ever.

Fergus is just kinda dumb and playing way out of his league.
It's no surprise to anyone with two working neurons to rub together that Fergus gets his lunch eaten by everyone he interacts with.

The other real estate developers in NYC all thought he was kind of a rich doofus with a big, stupid, mouth, and they were absolutely correct.

The Republicans he's thrown in with, on the other hand, are evil.
But evil, for the most part, is dumb.
And those Republicans have demonstrated over and over that they are dumb.

Like when they thought that inviting all of the racists we ran out of the party with civil rights legislation into their party was a good idea.

We told them it wasn't, and we knew what we were talking about because we had them in our party for a century or so.

But no! It was gonna be great! They were gonna win elections for you forever, and you would always be able to control them with Jebus and abortion and gays and drugs, and how is that working out for you now that a total moron has just used them to take over your party and no matter what criminal, stupid, embarrassing shit he does you still have to kiss his ass because all of those racists you said you could control worship him like an ugly, orange fire demon?

And your whole "tear it down and sell it off" program worked really well until you realized you wouldn't be in power forever, and pretty soon someone was gonna have to pay.

Fergus had you on that one, because he's old enough that whatever happens to him, he'll be dead pretty soon anyway, and if he gets a few perverted thrills at the expense of the rest of your lives, he thinks he'll die smiling.

Perhaps he will. But perhaps he miscalculated when he thought he could bring his wannabe mobster tactics to the presidency, where every time you fart or stub your toe the media and your political enemies shout it from the rooftops, and after a while, even your own DOJ will hear and be forced by the law they are sworn to enforce to do something about it.

But mostly there's this: Even if you slime out of accountability while you're in office, you know those stodgy norms and traditions of governance you get off so much on stomping into the dirt?
One of those is the one where we, for some reason, don't go after former presidents for the crimes they committed while they were in office. You may make it into the history books yet, and into federal custody in early 2021.

Fresh off of the news that the big banks have posted their most profitable quarter ever, the goddamn Republicans just voted to roll back some of the already weak regulations we managed to put on them after they crashed the goddamn economy ten years ago.
But Hillary made speeches so she was the one in bed with Wall Street.
The goddamn Republican voters who bought that bullshit are some of the stupidest creatures ever to shamble across the face of the Earth.

“Alright, first Black woman nominated for governor by a major party! Now Dems we need you to support the sista the same way you supported the special congressional election.”

Is it really possible for a Dem to win the governorship in Georgia, though? That’s what I’m wondering.

On the one hand, a Democrat did just win a Senate seat in Alabama, and Alabama is an even redder state than Georgia.

On the other, other hand, that Democrat’s opponent was a total creep who prefers to find his dates at the local playground or middle school, so ... maybe that’s not such an easily repeatable feat.

Voters remember that wingnuts have stood by silently and let Drumpf, Putin and who knows who else subvert the political process and usurp power. The constitution makes it abundantly clear there are three co-equal branches of government and they are not named Drumpf, Putin and Numbnuts Nunes.

Take back both houses of congress and impeach the shit fer brains fucking crook in the WH.

PilotX said...

I think it is possible for a Dem to win in GA because there are soooooo many unregistered voters. Many don't vote because they are disillusioned but Stacey may give them a reason to believe especially if Betnie and others put on the full court press. This may even bring Michelle and Barack out of hiding.

Kinky Con said...

Stacey Abrams will lose by at least 8 points.

Cruz is now up by 7 pts.

The Cook Report just flip four Congressional races from lean Dem to lean Rep.

Dems lead in the generic ballot is down the 3 points...

Republicans are most likely to gain seats in the Senate...

Things are looking up for Republicans...

"Well, it’s official: NFL owners decided to ban kneeling during the national anthem."

Not really. Teams and players will get fined for any "disrespect" of the anthem and/or flag. The fine hasn't been determined, what constitutes disrespect hasn't been defined and the union is still seeing if this compromise violates the CBA. If you're committed to the cause you'll take a knee and just take the fine. Fines go to charity anyway amd are tax writeoffs and to me shows you actually care when dollars are coming out of your pocket. Let's separate the real fighters from the posers.

Wait. weren't you the same guy that told us Romney in a landslide? πŸ˜‚
Anyhoo, Stacey gets to see if what people like Howard Dean, Bernie and others are saying is true that the Dems need to grow their base instead of chasing after the white male vote which IMHO is long lost. Trump won Georgia by 70,000 votes I think and there are that many votes from just unregistered Black folks. Georgia is flippable due to the number of Black, Latino and young voters (natural fits for Dems). Of course she won't poll well with older polling groups because they rely on land lines and no millenial has even seen a land line. It'll be close and it will show Dr. Dean's 50 state strategy is viable. I wish her luck.

"If you're committed to the cause you'll take a knee and just take the fine."

The noble cause of allowing black criminals to violently resist arrest without suffering any consequences?

Blacks commit crimes mote often.

Blacks resist arrest more often.

Blacks are actually less likely to be shot by police when resisting arrest.

This whole protest is a moronic, hateful, divisive exercise that depends on ignorance and distortions of reality.

The good news is a large portion of their fans are ready to walk away from the NFL if this clown show continues. And stuff like this just redpills more whites about the absolute uselessness of catering to pampered blacks.

If the NFL wants to stop its slide, they'd better make those fines a million a pop.

Stoopid fucking anymoose wants Blacks to suck it up whennracially profiled and keep their mouths shut when harassed for no reason except the color of their skins.

Anymoose is rolling on the ground in his stinking white privilege so he smells like the rest of the racist wasicus looking to start a race war.

Blacks actually get preferential treatment from the police. Police are slower to escalate situations with black suspects because they know they will be charged with racism, whether justified or not.

Blacks get more attention from everyone because they are orders of magnitude more likely to be a violent criminal. This is not a racist opinion, this is a statement of fact. Even Jesse Jackson agrees.

Today has been an interesting day.

NFL owners are trying to block black players from protesting.

At the same time, a federal judge has ruled that Trump cannot block people from his Twitter account. (Does that mean he is violating the First Amendment if he “mutes” people as well? Is he committing a crime if he prevents me from telling him to go fuck himself? I might have to get a Twitter account.)

Rules for Radicals said...

"At the same time, a federal judge has ruled that Trump cannot block people from his Twitter account."

Is there any limit to what a federal judge can decide? This, like so many recent rulings, is absolute nonsense.

But if that's the case, than Twitter can no longer block anyone from using their service, and will have to stop banning and shadow banning right wing accounts.

America’s big social problem is that there is too much hate in the hearts of white people, especially too much hate in the hearts of white liberals toward other whites.

Richard Spencer said...

"Is he committing a crime if he prevents me from telling him to go fuck himself? I might have to get a Twitter account.)"

At first glance, this case is ridiculous. Looking deeper, it's an important precedent. Social networks are a public space (not just a service) and law-abiding citizens have a right to them.

Transgender Files $50,000 Complaint Because Muslim Woman Refuses to Wax Genitals:

Earlier this month, a male-to-female transgender filed a $50,000 human rights complaint after a Muslim woman refused to perform a Brazilian wax on his genitals. …

“She never once asked for a leg wax [from] us,” Max Wax manager, president and CEO Jason Carruthers told PJ Media. “She said, ‘Women have penises and women have balls and if your staff is not comfortable they can look for another job.’”

Libard explanation for their utter failure:

> Voters remember that wingnuts have stood by silently and let Drumpf, Putin and who knows who else subvert the political process and usurp power.

Actual voters remember that we were FURIOUS that the establishment subverted the political process and blocked every change in policy we voted for.  Actual voters remember that we PACKED Trump's campaign rallies and turned out for him in record numbers on election day.  Actual voters remember that we WANTED THE SWAMP DRAINED... and with Obama-mole Rosenstein about to be booted and a Trump-appointed Inspector General about to be promoted to the Asst. Attorney General spot, we're in position to actually get it.

And the temporary budget deal is up in what, October?  Right before the mid-terms?  Right when voters expect their damned representatives to REPRESENT and GIVE THEM THE BORDER WALL AND MASS DEPORTATIONS THEY VOTED FOR TWO YEARS BEFORE?

It's a perfect storm, and there won't be much left of you Dimocraps or the Derp State afterwards.
