It would appear all the Jackass- er- Jackpine Radicals have made new accounts

and come back to pimp their boy Bernie again. Lots and lots of "Democratic Socialist" disruptors in our midst again, trying to poison the well.

The way I read the Dershowitz Precedent is this:

It will be generally assumed from this point forward that abuse of power is not possible, on the part of any President, so long as his or her actions are carried out in an attempt to be re-elected. The underlying principle put forth by Dershowitz is that every President believes their election to be in the nation's best interest and therefore any action taken in furtherance of this aim is legal.

Think of it this way: US Special Forces killed Osama Bin Laden on the orders of President Obama in the interest of protecting this nation. Few protested this action as unconstitutional or illegal. Trump could now, by the Dershowitz Precedent, conceivably have the Democratic nominee for President killed on the grounds that his or her election would threaten US security by preventing him (Trump) from remaining as President. Yes, it's that serious.

I think the successful installation of the Dershowitz precedent signals the end.

Trump will now be completely unrestrained in his actions because the legal precedent is that a President can do literally anything to insure reelection if he determines that his reelection is in the best interest of the nation. There's no more threat of impeachment. That's game over. I don't mean to suggest that it's not still worth fighting just on principle but I think the outcome of any election involving Trump is now pre-ordained.

I heard Trump just said "They want to wipe out totally Iowa ethanol."

If true I’ve got a big problem. Where will I go for beers next time I come to Kinnick to watch my Badgers play the Hawks? This could be a crisis for me personally!

Boy, Susan Collins sure does love being a "key GOP Senator."

On every important vote (Kavanaugh, shutdowns, impeachment witnesses are just a few examples) she casts herself as "undecided," "troubled," "concerned" or some combination of those. She gets a ton of TV coverage, virtual ink, and attention. Then she does what she's told to do by Mitch McConnell after receiving various "assurances" and making them public. Afterwards when exactly what everyone on the other side of the issue predicted would happen does happen she expresses her "shock" and claims "nobody could have predicted this!"

Every. Damn. Time.

There's NO FUCKING PLAN!

There's no plan for how to deal with the inevitable coming shitstorm because anyone capable of formulating such a plan in this administration has either quit or been fired by Trump. Never mind a plan that rank and file Democrats might be in favor of, there's NO FUCKING PLAN AT ALL because Trump and his little group of sycophants are making all this shit up as they go along!

We are well and truly fucked. Hundreds of thousands may die, but that's a small price to pay for Trump winning in 2020, right? For fuck's sake I'd give a lot to have Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld in charge again!

And before someone tears me a new one I fucking hate Bush Cheney and Rumsfeld. FUCK!!!!

I have now seen several posts on the interwebs showing Trump dry humping the US flag...

and these are from his SUPPORTERS. One I believe was a tweet from his campaign.

People actually think these images are FAVORABLE to the orange shitgibbon. Now just take a moment to digest that. This is how far the country has come. Literal flag humping is seen as a positive.

Massive voter purge being attempted in Wisconsin right now.

A conservative group is helping a trio of "concerned citizens" purge hundreds of thousands of voters from the rolls. These are people who have already registered to vote but may have moved. Guess who moves a lot? People of lower economic means who tend to vote for Democrats. Now, unless the current decision is reversed by a higher court, all of these people will have to go back to the DMV, update their information, and get a new voter ID...EVEN IF THEY HAVEN'T MOVED!

PORT WASHINGTON - An Ozaukee County judge on Friday ordered the state to remove hundreds of thousands of people from Wisconsin's voter rolls because they may have moved.

The case is being closely watched because of the state's critical role in next year's presidential race. Circuit Judge Paul Malloy also denied the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin's petition to intervene.

Lawyers for the League and for the Wisconsin Elections Commission indicated they will appeal and asked Malloy to stay his ruling pending those appeals, but he declined.
