or "All the President's Men" revisited.

Watergate 2.0.

Interestingly enough, BOTH Watergate AND Russiagate involve a break-in of the Democratic National Committee. Back then, burglars attempted to break into a headquarters' offices. This time, it was hackers and hacking the DNC. Plus whatever they stole from Hillary. A standard physical burglary the first time around. The crimes moved online for Episode 2.

All the more reason to do EVERYTHING WE CAN to take back the House!

Shove him into minority status, in which a DEMOCRAT, like Adam Schiff, is chair of that committee, with subpoena power and the power to set the agenda AND the road map toward IMPEACHMENT.

Catholic school here. Yep. You're spot-on, William Seger.

Matthew 25: 35-45. That's the one about "whatever you do to the LEAST OF MY BRETHREN, you do to Me."

Our Lord also never included in the Beatitudes anything about "blessed are the rich" or "blessed are the warmakers".

And He never advised the rich young man to come on in and buy Me a palace so we can live like kings! He told the rich young man who asked "how do I join up?" to go and sell all his possessions, give the money to the poor, and THEN come back. And as I recall from that passage, the rich young man did not like that advice, and went away, sad.

Oddly enough, you NEVER EVER hear these pompous, sanctimonious hypocrites with their religionist empires and TV networks and real estate portfolios and fancy cars, designer clothes, chauffeurs, servants, publicists, entourages, and fawning hangers-on mention any of these three sets of Christ's teachings. i have yet to hear ANY televangelist build a sermon on any of that.

Oh good! I didn't remember. Glad it got its moment in the sun.

A great Image of the Day is a terrible thing to waste.

Logan Handsomepants! ROFL!!!

SO cool!

I like watching doggies like that go down a flight of stairs. Watching from behind, that is. Hilarious! We have a very fat kitty who makes us laugh every time he "bunnys" downstairs. Looks like a big fat rabbit going lope-de-lope-de-lope, and it cracks me up every time! You CANNOT stay mad or sad when you see something like that.

Now, that quote from an unidentified member of the intel community

becomes a LOT more intriguing. Anybody remember, fairly early in all this, when the remarkable quote came, re trump: “he will die in jail”?

I wouldn’t be surprised if the intelligence community shared a lot of this stuff amongst themselves. I suspect these aren’t folks you’d want to piss off.

It would cause more problems than it might - repeat, MIGHT - solve.

Just imagine it. There already have been petitions signed by, I think, a couple of million Brits, saying “don’t invite him over here” ANYWAY, even before there was another royal wedding in the works.

Can you imagine how Harry and Meghan’s big day would be ruined by that? People protesting, even marching in the streets against it, on what is supposed to be a very happy and personally significant, and THOROUGHLY non-political day for the still-beloved Diana’s baby boy? The very presence of trump would just ruin it all, and turn it into a spectacle of disruption and international disharmony. It would turn THEIR special day into yet another chaotic all-about-trump mess. And that is NOT how an event like this one is supposed to be!

+4, +5, +6, and beyond.

It’s THEIR wedding. And THEIR big day. And THEIR life event. They should have it THEIR way, dammit!

And frankly at this point, perhaps Theresa May shouldn’t bother worrying about whether she can work with trump or not. I don’t see how ANY world leader can consider “working with” him. He’s a congenital pathological LIAR. He is WILLFULLY ignorant, proud of it, and impulsive as all hell. Who in their right mind, with ANY even minimal grip on reality, COULD work with him? Who, other than Vladimir Putin, could work with him? Who could feel comfort trusting him, knowing what a liar he is and how impulsive and flighty he is, would feel comfortable making “deals” with him? There’s no way to trust him. No way!

Ms. May would be better off not bothering with him and doing whatever could be done without his involvement.

Our so-called pResident thinks hes a king.

It DOESN’T work that way in the public sector - OR in America at large.

This job you think you “won” redefines you as a PUBLIC SERVANT. That’s what all elected officials are: public SERVANTS.
