SCIF Squad: GOP dead-enders crash closed House committee session

The protest is over, after delaying the hearing for five hours. Laura Cooper of the DoD is testifying. The sit-in was held by GOP House members not on the relevant committees in the SCIF facility. PIzza was ordered and apparently no one was arrested. Republicans forming a literal mob to obstruct the impeachment inquiry was pretty…

Pull the Lever…

The racial slot machine Donald Trump has used, since he trundled down an escalator in the late Spring of 2015, reached its’ newest low yesterday.  Starting in the late 1880s through the 1960s, when black lives were deemed even worth counting, over 4,700 lynchings took place in the United States. Of that number, 3/4 were…

Trump Wants Senate Republicans To Put On Show Trials About the Democrats.

I wondered what all that BS was about Trump wanting the Senate Republicans to fight.  Trump wants the Senate Republicans to basically throw show trials about Democratic wrongdoings in order to defend Trump from impeachment. “Senate Republicans don't have to defend Trump on everything, they just have to do their jobs,” said one senior Trump…

Did You Know Abuse of Power Isn't a Crime?

Matt Whittaker offered the latest Trumpie defense of the indefensible: Former Trump Acting AG Matthew Whitaker Offers Stunning Impeachment Defense: ‘Abuse of Power is Not a Crime’ Speaking with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Whitaker blasted the House Democrats for “secret testimony” and “selective leaking to preferred outlets” after warning that a future Republican Speaker of…

Trump's NY Lawyer Argues President Literally Above the Law

Today, the efforts of Manhattan District Attorney Vance to subpoena Trump’s tax returns are before the Second Circuit Court. Before I make any further commentary, I’d like to direct everyone to the Twitter reporting of Adam Klasfeld, who should be everyone’s go-to first stop for reporting on the assorted major cases of this maladministration. Representing…

RWNJs are having trouble defending Individual-1 in the #Trumpeachment

Other than a rhetorical diversion into the use of “lynching”, Lindsey Graham is one of a few Senate Republicans unencumbered by the possibility of sitting as an impeachment juror. RWNJ pundits have taken to attacking Graham to fill the space of media reaction and in the absence of many Trump defenders in the Senate. Other…

Current Media Narrative On Status of Democratic Presidential Race.

Actually, there isn’t just one Media narrative on the Democratic presidential race, but I want to focus on this one story from CNBC.  It certainly encapsulates the narrative on Joe Biden.  Yes, I do not support Joe Biden, BUT I do not think that the data presented supports the narrative.  Spoiler Alert:  Biden’s campaign is…

Trump hotel nixes Christian prayer event supporting Kurds

So, what, the Kurds are our bitter enemies now? How dare they let us betray them like this? The Hill: A prayer event for the Kurdish people that was scheduled for this week at President Trump's hotel in D.C. was abruptly canceled, The Washington Post reported. The event, dubbed “A Night of Prayer for the Kurds,” was planned…

Moscow Mitch flatly contradicts one of Trump's lies

What do you say? Should we keep calling Mitch McConnell “Moscow Mitch” until a) the heat death of the universe, b) he’s out of office, or c) he stops being a useless waste of tortoise shell? I say a). But that’s just me. But this isn’t about Mitch McConnell the filthy traitor. It’s about Mitch McConnell…

“no turn unstoned” in Arms for Dirt scandal

The road to the bunker seems a lot clearer after William Taylor’s testimony, in which he clearly describes the regular and irregular agenda channels in the Arms for Dirt scandal. Three “amigos” and Rudy are described clearly in Taylor’s opening statement. Of them, Sondland now appears to have perjured himself. Even if POTUS* cannot be indicted,…
