To paraphrase Laugh In...

Verrrry interesting...but stupid.

Kelly Anne is no brain trust. I continue to wonder about her marriage to George Conway. It is even stranger than the marriage the marriage of Mary Matalin and James Carville—and I thought that impossible.

Do they even live together? Do they indulge in shop talk?

It’s a puzzlement.

Hate to be a paranoid cynic...

Wonder who fired the missiles? Could it be us?

We have a long, dishonorable history of false flag operations. Bay of Pigs, Gulf of Tonkin...

Trumpie wants himself a war. What better way to get it?

Edit: I confused the Bay of Pigs with the pretext for our starting the Spanish American war—the blowing up of the battleship Maine in Havana harbor.

We blamed the Spanish without much to go on. So, in essence, a false justification for war.

The 2nd reference is to the Gulf of Tonkin. This was turned into a major provocation when it was most likely some over zealous NV sailors.

Guess I’m using the wrong term.

What I’m pointing out is that the US has often used minor incidents where clear responsibility cannot be established to impute blame on nations that we wanted to go to war with.

Not sure there is a nice, catchy term to use. Bet most readers knew exactly what I was trying to say.

We need to take ownership of the language

Trump and his hell spawned minions keep talking about this as an issue of “illegal” immigration.

These people are not immigrants. They are refugees.

No one wants to use this language as refugees are treated very differently than immigrants.

Refugees, not immigrants. This is why Jeff Sessions made a point to eliminate most of the reasons he knew these refugees would use to petition for asylum.

We are are violating international law, the spirit of our own law—and all moral norms.

But Trump—well...if you haven’t heard—he’s a fascist who only hires the most irredeemable fascists.

This is a quote from Trump’s own Twitter: “These aren’t people. These are animals.” Politifact complained that the context was left out as he was ostensibly talking about MS-13. But I call BS on that. What he was doing was conflating asylum seekers as being members of MS-13...for which there is no evidence.

Many 👍

A very valid analogy.

Oh sweet Jesus...

For over 2000 years fundamentalist Christians of many stripes have woven hard to believe prophecy that keyed off of the Book of Revelation. It took only a couple of years of Trump and this yokel is suggesting that all that stuff in Revelation be discarded because Trump will bring a paradise on Earth—a utopia ( this utopia will it be for you and me).

I’ve always had a healthy contempt for fundies as they routinely believe the utterly unbelievable. But now I want to weep because there are people out there that stupid.

Dershowitz is completely corrupt

Dershowitz is completely in thrall to Trump. He knows that if he fails to vigorously defend his lord that he can expect certain things about underage girls and rape and what Trump and Epstein knows he did...to leak out.

That he is this craven and this compromised astounds me. It is hard to watch the complete dissolution of a man that had standing and respect from both sides.

Now Dershowitz is no better than Dinesh D’souza, Sean Hannity, Rudy Giuliani, Rush, Glen Beck etc.

Twin impeachments

Nancy and the crew need to go on offense.

I’m dreaming of twin (at least) impeachments. One for Trump and one for Barr.

Barr has now been shown to have committed perjury when he offered his summation of the Mueller report. Is that not enough?

Trump, well hell, the report just concerns the Russia election interference scandal. There’s a lot more that’s just in plain sight like blatant, repeated witness tampering and intimidation.

Or calling for the execution of his political rivals. Or siding with Putin and Kim over his intelligence agencies and National Security staff.
