Not being best.

TWEET METhe president of the United States held up the D- Day celebration to give an interview to state television in front of the graves of the men who gave their lives for freedom. And what did he do? He insulted a man who fought in the Vietnam war and won medals for his bravery. He also insulted Nancy Pelosi, who refused to take the bait and talk about him on foreign soil. ("Be best"?)

"Let me tell you, he made such a fool out of himself the last time," Trump said of Mueller, "Because what people don't report is the letter he had to do to straighten out his testimony because his testimony was wrong."

Trump continued: "But Nancy Pelosi—I call her Nervous Nancy—Nancy Pelosi doesn't talk about it. Nancy Pelosi's a disaster, OK, she's a disaster and let her do what she wants."

When he finally got to his speech, Mr. trump sounded like he was strung out on drugs while he labored through reading a well crafted speech on the teleprompter. The bar has been set so low for him that some pundits were actually saying that he gave a good speech. It's scary how this guy has gaslighted an entire country into thinking that bad is good, and that truths are lies.

Anyway,  now would be a good time for you to read the following article from a former senate staffer.

"On February 13, 2016, Justice Antonin Scalia died. Before his body was in the ground, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he would block anyone President Barack Obama nominated to fill Scalia’s seat. The next week, Jeb Bush dropped out of the Republican primary, quickly followed by Marco Rubio, and eventually Ted Cruz, leaving Donald Trump as the
presumptive nominee. Polls showed Hillary Clinton beating Trump by solid margins, with forecasters pegging her chances of victory from 71 to 85 percent, and Democrats favored to take back the Senate.
I was working for Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid at the time. Being in the minority limited our options for overcoming McConnell’s blockade. But whenever we started to contemplate more aggressive tactics, they were dismissed on the theory that the upcoming election would sort everything out. Why rock the boat, we told ourselves. We’re on a glide path to victory in November, and then President Clinton will submit her Supreme Court nominee to be confirmed by a Democratic Senate.

The rest is history. McConnell’s decision to block Garland consolidated Republican support behind Trump and helped him pull off a narrow victory. Instead of a Democratic president appointing a liberal justice to tilt the balance of the Supreme Court, Trump has appointed two justices to entrench a conservative majority for a generation.

Republicans wielded their power while we hoped for the best. And the course of history was altered forever.

There are two lessons here for House Democrats as they debate whether to open an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
First, polling can change.

I don’t know how else to say this: getting impeached is bad. It is not something you want to happen to you, especially if you’re president. You do not want to go down as one of only four presidents in history to be impeached. This is a bad thing. Only Democrats, bless our hearts, could convince ourselves that it is good for a president to be impeached.

Richard Nixon’s approval rating was at 65 percent when his impeachment process began and only 19 percent of the public supported his impeachment. By the end, the numbers had flipped: his approval was 24 percent and support for impeachment was 57 percent. Former president Bill Clinton survived because he was popular and the man pursuing him, Independent Counsel Ken Starr, was not. The public rightly thought Starr was on a fishing expedition. By contrast, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is popular and the public thinks he is fair, while Trump is historically unpopular. Even though Clinton survived, his heir apparent lost the next election—which he had been heavily favored to win—while Republicans gained seats in Congress.

The second lesson from the Garland experience is that like nature, power abhors a vacuum. The decision not to impeach is not a decision to focus on other things, it is a decision to cede power, control, and legitimacy to Trump. Trump is not a master chess player, he just bluffs his opponents into forfeiting their moves—and that is exactly what he is doing to House Democrats.

For their part, House Democrats have argued that by foregoing impeachment they can shift the conversation to topics their consultants tell them are safer ground, like health care. That’s not going to happen. Reporters cover news, and only events that drive news can shift the message. House Democrats are understandably proud of having run and won on health care in the 2018 midterms. But their campaign messages were buoyed by a constant flood of major health care news coming out of Washington, DC, driven by the very real threat that Republicans would repeal or replace the Affordable Care Act. But since Democrats took back the House, that’s not going to happen. This is a good thing, but it severely limits Democrats’ ability to drive news on health care. Passing bills in the House that are guaranteed to go nowhere in McConnell’s Senate, as House Democrats recently did with bills to strengthen Obamacare and lower drug prices, will not drive a message.

The void that House Democrats are ceding to Trump is the space between now and election day. Filling that space with easy messages like health care is not a viable option. And a good rule of thumb of politics is that if you have the power to do something that hurts your opponent, you should do it.

Impeachment is a long process that will highlight Trump’s crimes, which according to (literally) one thousand former federal prosecutors, include “multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice.” Imagine the Michael Cohen, James Comey, or William Barr hearings but on steroids, for many weeks. Anything can happen and hearings can go haywire, but the odds of making a convincing public case against Trump are stacked strongly in Democrats’ favor. Trump’s crimes are serious and laid out in meticulous detail by an unimpeachable source. The public already believes he committed serious crimes by a margin of two to one. There is already a loud chorus decrying Trump’s crimes and arguing that he should be impeached, ranging from Kellyanne Conway’s husband to a sitting Republican Congressman. In this case, the impeachment process is like one of those meals where all the ingredients come in a box: you have to boil some water and maybe crack an egg, but it’s basically idiot-proof.

If and when the House votes to impeach, the ball goes to the Senate. The Senate can ignore it, which means the House’s impeachment is the last word. That would be fine. But McConnell would be under enormous pressure from Trump and the entire right-wing echosphere to call a Kangaroo court into session for the purpose of letting Trump off. If the Senate conducts a trial, Senate Republicans up for reelection in 2020—like Maine’s Susan Collins and Colorado’s Cory Gardner—will have to decide whether to vote to remove from office a President who has been shown to have committed serious crimes, or protect him. They will likely vote to protect Trump and it will cost them: they will have to explain which of Trump’s many crimes they think are no big deal, why they disagree with the many voices from their own party saying his crimes make him unfit, and why a criminal president should be allowed to continue in office.

More importantly, if the public believes Trump is guilty but the Senate lets him off anyway, he won’t ever be truly exonerated—he’ll be O.J. Simpson, assumed guilty but sprung by allies and circumstance. Some Democrats have argued that we should skip impeachment and vote Trump out instead. But if the House impeaches Trump and Senate Republicans fall in line to protect him, the argument that the ballot is the only way to remove him will be supercharged.

By contrast, declining to impeach Trump validates his claim that Mueller exonerated him. At a Grand Rapids town hall held by Michigan’s Justin Amash, the lone Republican Congressman who has come out for impeachment, an attendee was confused by Amash’s position until hearing him lay out the case for an inquiry. “I was surprised to hear there was anything negative in the Mueller report at all about President Trump. I hadn’t heard that before," she told NBC. "I’ve mainly listened to conservative news and I hadn’t heard anything negative about that report and President Trump has been exonerated." People will not know what Trump did wrong if Democrats don’t tell them.
Even more ominously, Trump’s weaponized Department of Justice under Barr, who has shown himself to be Trump’s eager and obedient partner in abusing the power of the state to advance the president’s political interests, will inevitably invent a pretext for investigating the Democratic nominee. Democrats should consider whether they’d rather engage that fight against a president who has been impeached for serious crimes, or against a president strengthened by the de facto exoneration bestowed when his opponents declined to pursue the evidence against him.

It is a long way from June 2019 to November 2020. And as they say in Boston, you can’t get there from here. Hoping everything turns out well while giving Trump free space to wield his power is unlikely to end well.

The fight will be hard for House Democrats and the appeal of dodging it is strong. But like the monsters in “It Follows,” this fight will find you. It already has.

There is no way over, under, or around impeachment—only through." [Source]

when you're not opining yourself Field, you're finding great articles to make your point.

There's another by Lawrence Tribe, as an op-ed in the Washington Post, saying what some of us had been thinking, that the House should impeach and then slow-walk the results to the Senate. I mean really slow-walk, so it never reaches them before November 2020. There would be all the advantage of educating the American people to the crimes (many more than just Obstruction of Justice) without the risk of "exonerating" the Goon-in-Chief.

No, we admit that there is no way of getting Trump removed from office via impeachment for his very real crimes, because servile Senate Republicans will block it, so one of the only remaining alternatives to achieve justice and restore sanity to the federal government is to use it as an election strategy.

Now Trump has invented some imaginary, secret letter that only Trump has seen, in which Mueller retracts all the mean things he said about him.

I think Trump's lying is accelerating. He's moved on from distorting people's actual comments about him to fabricating entire conversations that never happened.

Forget about impeachment. Declaring him insane and removing him by the 25th Amendment would be entirely justified.

I highly doubt there are many, if any, people being ROR'ed for carjacking. And regardless, getting out of jail pending trial ≠ no punishment after conviction. Bail was never intended as a punishment -- because you're talking about a person who has been convicted of nothing at that point -- but as an inducement to show up at trial. And that inducement usually isn't even necessary in the cases of low-level offenses.

Besides that, your argument is 180 degrees off of the reality. The opposite is true. We don't live in a country where low-income people are underpunished. The United States is a country where wealthy people can commit major financial crimes, trashing the global economy, and face no meaningful consequences, while the poor have their lives turned upside down for pilfering a Snickers bar.

It's high time the rich are forced to "learn some responsbility." Currently, they have none. They are accountable for exactly zilch.

Spending every waking moment breathlessly following every Fake News tidbit purporting to show Donald Trump is crazy/evil/crooked/incompetent is a is a deeply dishonest and unhealthy way to spend your life.

You are being led by the nose by the power-mad Democrats and their lying media.

Donald Trump may be an egotistical boor who over promises and under delivers, but there is no evidence that he committed any crimes worthy of impeachment.

On the other hand, the Democrats ran the most corrupt campaign in history in 2016. They used the FBI and CIA to spy on the Republican candidate. They allowed hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to vote and turned in hundreds of thousands of fraudulent ballots. They encouraged multiple voting in states like Minnesota and Wisconsin. They stole New Hampshire with out of state voters.

And they still lost.

Afterwards, they tried to overturn the election by accusing the President of the very treason that their candidate herself had committed. When their phony investigation fell through, they turned to the idea the President should be impeached because he complained about the phony investigation.

The Democrats today are a bunch of deranged criminals driven by hate for legacy America, who will do or say anything to stop their pathetic slide into irrelevance.

Get off that crazy train.

Fergus should be nice to Nancy Pelosi, she's the only thing keeping him from being impeached right now.

And if he has a problem with going to prison, he should have thought about that before he obstructed justice those ten or more times spelled out in such clinical detail in the Mueller report to satisfy all three criteria for prosecution.

And yes, the goddamn spineless Democrats need to grow a pair and do their jobs. Kinda like that SRO in Florida, when the ugliness goes down, you are the one being paid to deal with it, and if you have a problem with that, you are in the wrong line of work. Listen to Elizabeth Warren explain it for you and you'll know what to do.

And on the lighter side, Oakland just decriminalized psilocybin mushrooms (and peyote, but fuck that nasty stuff). I haven't eaten a magic mushroom in a very long time, but I used to know a place to pick them where they were plentiful, excellent, and an adventure to even get, much less get high on. The gate to the field had a sign on it that read: "Mushroom pickers keep out. You will be shot on sight."
So we had to go at night, with flashlights, and sneak down a trail in the dark to get there, and even so they came after us with shotguns a couple of times while we were picking, necessitating fast, silent escapes back up the trail to where we had the car hidden on the dirt road, which we then had to coast down with the engine and lights off to avoid giving our entrance away.
It's hard to steer a Ford Torino with the engine off, but I'm here to say it can be done...

So the jobs report was disappointing. From Taegan Goddard:

"Donald Trump has now been in office for 28 full months -- February 2017 through May 2019 -- and in that time, the economy has created 5.4 million jobs. In the 28 full months preceding Trump's presidency -- October 2014 to January 2017 -- the economy created 6.1 million jobs.

The Republican continues to tell the world that he's overseeing the strongest domestic job growth in American history, which is plainly false. What's more, the White House has not yet offered an explanation for why job growth has slowed since Trump took office."

Speaking of shrooms...way back in my youth, there was a very large cow pasture which would produce grocery store bags of the things. The farmer put this mean-assed bull in the pasture, to try and keep us out. We'd have someone lure the bull to the far fence, pop him in the butt with a BB-gun, to piss him off, and keep him occupied while we picked. Finally, the farmer got smart...he switched his cattle feed, and the shroom field "dried up". I never liked them, myself.

BUT. We made a small fortune off them. We'd buy Gerber baby food, empty the jars, pack the shrooms in them. I had a friend who lived in Illinois, but he would come back several times a year. We would load him up with a couple of hundred jars, and he'd take them back to IL. Those Yankees would pay a fortune for them.

We cannot trust ANY claim that Trump committed a crime.  Period.  The Obama administration, in concert with Italian intelligence, conspired to frame Trump for having Hillary's e-mails on a commercial file server:

"Giulio Occhionero
@g_occhionero
May 24
Replying to @TheBigOldDog @FBI @DHSgov
It's a lot more serious than that. They hacked into several US online services FOR YEARS, apart from my servers. The uploading of spywares to Google PlayStore in the Exodus (again Polizia) case you read these days is just the tip of the iceberg. Where are @FBI and @DHSgov?"

More:

"Giulio Occhionero
@g_occhionero
May 26
Replying to @pickletoon @carolafrediani @phretor
Also because you have to know that Albamonte and Ramondino never deposited the supposed malware in trial; only a script they claimed "would download a malware". But when Perugia checked log files, it was Ramondino hacking into these services. Read the Perugia doc from Neon."

(Follow-up tweets up to this most recent.)

Heads have already rolled over this; the chiefs of several Italian intellligence services have been fired.  This is real, "Trump's crimes" are fake.  Salvini is going to provide evidence that will guarantee that Hillary, and most of the Obama administration, wind up in prison.

You think it's all right for president Trump to flaunt the law and break it repeatedly when he is the highest law officer in the land?

You didn't ask this when it was Obama committing felonies left and right.  REAL crimes that have gotten people killed, like Operation Fast and Furious.  You're just a partisan without principles... no, you're worse than that.  You're a traitor to America.

All those who excuse black criminals are also traitors.  A cop dares to Notice that State's Attorney Foxx was letting CARJACKERS off:

"Victims of carjackings that wanted to prosecute and kimeisha foxx defense attorneys would only approve criminal trespass to vehicle ."

(note the sarcasm, "kimeisha foxx defense attorneys".  They are supposed to be prosecutors, defending the law-abiding public.  Instead they were defending criminals FROM the public.  Still are.)

This was SOP, not an isolated case.  Another cop lists a case in which FELONY MURDER pursuant to carjacking was dismissed without charges:

"Three offenders drive to Bridgeport in a car taken in a carjacking at which time it breaks down. They go on the hunt for another victim. The State of IL renders assistance and pushes their vehicle to a parking place. They choose a retired 71 year old police officer parking his car. Bad move. After hiding and jumping out from behind a nearby parked car, the armed offender runs at the retiree pointing his weapon and stating Im going to blow your head off. Retiree reacts and is able to fire a single shot at offender #1 striking him in the chest killing him. Offender #2, who was several feet behind offender #1 is ordered to get on the ground while offender #3 flees discarding clothing. Offender #3 captured and positively identified in a show up 10 mins later. Charges against OFF#2 and OFF#3 dropped. Released without charging."

This arose from "de-policing".  CWB gives the history:

"In 2015, the year before the current rise in vehicular hijackings began to build, Illinois changed the way it handles some juveniles who are charged with the crime.

Under the new law, defendants age 15- through 17-years-old would no longer be tried in adult court for serious crimes such as committing armed robbery or carjacking with a firearm.

So, who led the march to roll back the consequences of those crimes?

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle was a major cheerleader."

Trump lies again.

He tweeted out: “MEXICO HAS AGREED TO IMMEDIATELY BEGIN BUYING LARGE QUANTITIES OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCT FROM OUR GREAT PATRIOT FARMERS!”

But there has been no deal between the US and Mexico on agricultural products. This is a figment of Trump’s imagination. What has actually happened is that he has backed down on his dumb threat of tariffs against Mexico, in exchange for them making some vague promises to stop Central American asylum-seekers from coming to the US. Who knows whether they will honor those promises? Mexico’s President AMLO is a lefty who hates Trump and isn’t inclined to do him any favors.

And this is not to mention that congressional Republicans were planning on joining with the Dems to block these tariffs anyway, because they can’t take any more of Trump’s incompetence on the economy. Enough is enough.

Gosh, it must really burn you that the majority of people like “the gays” now. It isn’t only “our betters” that think you’re a dickhead.

Nonsense. No one is trying to convince you to be gay. And BTW, "secular theocracy" is an oxymoron. The two terms are contradictory. Is English you first language?

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

Many fish are dead because of me. I am a legend among legends along my beloved Little Sioux River. The catfish all agree that I am the one that got away. And ma and pa catfish warn their children to be ware when the "Catfish Guy" (me) comes calling after dark.

Alas, those nights are mostly behind me due to medical problems, but, man I broke some catfish hearts and Trilene lines in my day. And I didn't do it for fame or food. I did it because it gave me the inner peace you rotten fucking retarded wingnuts take away from Americans.

Small correction, Doug. Your praise for Chuck Schumer rightly goes alot closer to home as it was Maxine Waters that made thAt prediction about Drumpf.

I remember awhile back when all wingnuts could talk about was their ability to get Maxine Waters kicked out of Congress on ethics charges. Turns out she is more ethical than all stoopid fucking wingnuts combined.

According to my dictionary, -The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, secular is defined as: "of pertaining to the temporal rather than the spiritual" Temporal is defined as: "of or pertaining to or concerned with worldly affairs."

Theocracy is defined as: "Government by a god regarded as the ruling power or by priests or officials claiming divine sanction."

So by definition, there is no such thing or concept as theocratic secularism. you can speak it or white it, but it has no meaning. It's a contradiction in terms. In other words it's an oxymoron.

According to my dictionary, a racist is

a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

That is not me, but you would call me a racist.

Theocracy is defined as: "Government by a god regarded as the ruling power or by priests or officials claiming divine sanction.

Secular progressives assert a primacy and universality of their morality with themselves in the position of God. Progressivism venerates "priests or officials" who define and enforce this morality and attempt to impose their values on everyone, by force if necessary.

Women should not be running important things. How many power-hungry women with awful judgement have we seen on the political scene lately? Angela Merkel, Teresa May, Hillary Clinton, AOC, Illan Omar, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and that dingbat Kiwi Jacinda Ardern, she of the bizarre kissy-kissy Islam act, who just turned 300,000 gun owners into criminals subject to fines and prosecution just for wanting to keep their property and be left alone.

All of these women have been promoted beyond their level of competence, and they have no clue about it.

We haven't seen any women with judgement as awful as that of Donald Trump. He is destroying the economic recovery that Obama built and creates a mess where ever he goes.

Women should run the country. They could do a much better job than Trump.

You are scum in a sewage lagoon. I never said I was against showing interracial couples in commercials, I just questioned why 97% of them seem to be black men with white women. You'd have to be blind not to see it. Funny, how you black women seem to be fine with it. Come to think of it, I'd want me a white woman, if I was a black man, too.

I don't really believe in coincidences. This is all orchestrated. The question is...by whom? And what's the purpose?

I know, you won't/can't elucidate an intelligent answer. Just attack and insult me for asking.
