Hasta Siempre, Kirk!

Genius. Kind. And a Democrat.

From Seven Days in May...

President Jordan Lyman: I know what Scott's attitude on the treaty is, what's yours?

Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: I agree with General Scott, sir. I think we're being played for suckers. I think it's really your business. Yours and the Senate. You did it, and they agreed so, well, I don't see how we in the military can question it. I mean we can question it, but we can't fight it. We shouldn't, anyway.

President Jordan Lyman: Jiggs, isn't it? Isn't that what they call you?

Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: Yes sir.

President Jordan Lyman: So you, ah, you stand by the Constitution, Jiggs?

Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: I never thought of it just like that, Mr. President, but, well, that's what we got and I guess it's worked pretty well so far. I sure don't want to be the one to say we ought to change it.

President Jordan Lyman: Neither do I.


President John F. Kennedy liked the book so much he let Hollywood use the White House to make the film.

If true, hope the whistleblower testifies before the House.

The testimony would be a winning campaign theme.

The work is titled, “Fuck You GOP.”

Not in a million years, I once thought.

Trump is worse than a crook. He's a traitor.

The evidence is there. Trump works for Putin.

The fact the GOP doesn’t want to investigate the matter is a problem.

Not for us, though. It’s their problem. For it shows the GOP, too, are traitors.

The Democrats need pro communication consultants.

Schiff is good. There are flashes by the others. They need a master storyteller, though...one who could immediately grab the nation’s attention and hold it for the whole sordid story.

And it is a hell of a story. The problem is it is a complicated Trump is a traitor. He betrayed the Constitution, the office and the United States of America. His actions advance the interests of our nation’s chief adversary.

Trump hurt an ally by denying them military aid in exchange for help in destroying the reputation of his political rival. His lies serve to repeat propaganda — weaponized speech — developed by Russian military experts. A whistleblower’s report about it all was denied to Congress.

Trump has lied to Congress and the American people. He has ignored his duty and ordered his subordinates to withhold accurate and timely information to Congress. He uses his office for personal enrichment.

Trump covers up his criminality with the help of sitting US Representatives and Senators. Imagine if AOC told it.



On a muggy morning in July 2008, hundreds of customers stood outside IndyMac Bank branches in Southern California, trying to pull their savings from the lender, which was doomed by losses on risky mortgages.

Steven Mnuchin didn’t know much about IndyMac as he watched the scenes on CNBC from his Midtown Manhattan office. But he immediately saw an opportunity and began figuring out how to buy the bank.

Regulators seized IndyMac, foreshadowing a vicious banking crisis. Six months later, Mr. Mnuchin and his investment partners acquired IndyMac with a helping hand from the U.S. government. The deal eventually earned him hundreds of millions of dollars in personal profits.

Roberts & the 'Apex of Presidential Power'

By Nat Parry
September 6, 2005


In the 1980s, Roberts also provided legal advice to the Reagan administration on how to pick its way around the legal obstacles erected by Congress to limit military and other assistance to the Nicaraguan contra rebels who were fighting to overthrow Nicaragua’s leftist Sandinista government.


Conflict of Interest

Regarding the Hamdan case, Roberts also saw no impropriety in his simultaneous interviewing with senior administration officials for a life-time job on the Supreme Court and his judging of a case in which Bush was a defendant.

On April 1, Roberts was interviewed by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who had formulated many of the arguments for the “apex of presidential power,” including Bush’s right to override anti-torture laws.

Other interviews with Roberts were conducted by Vice President Dick Cheney; White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card; White House legal counsel Harriet Miers; Bush’s chief political strategist Karl Rove; and Cheney’s chief of staff Lewis Libby.



We need an "America Rescue Mission."

Save us from what the rest of the planet has moved past.

Why can't Schiff ask Roberts to call witnesses?

One would think the trial judge would have the authority to determine what does and does not happen in his or her courtroom.

Fuck Moscow Mitch.

What Moscow Mitch MOST Fears

We the People hear from witnesses and discover the truth:
