Jarvanka is at Individual-1's side, because nepotism has too many syllables

The biggest leaker of them all: Jarvanka will throw all kinds of folks under the bus. Jarvanka thinks that because Barr prevented the Mueller report from reaching them, that they won’t at some moment be held accountable in the aftermath of the Trump regime’s attempt to destroy US democracy.  They remain a target of opportunity. But…

WaPo weighs in on Mick Mulvaney's truth-telling

The Trump Doral-G7 announcement was designed to draw attention from Turkey-Syria warfare and #Trumpeachment. Unfortunately, Mick Mulvaney’s set-to with the press over the Ukraine quid pro quo did demonstrate the continuing messaging incompetence of the WH. Hours later, Mulvaney made a clumsy attempt to disinform the confession of what seems plainly obvious in the released documents….

“Dude gotta go” … majority in favor of impeachment and removal

The Trump meltdown seems not to have had much effect, other than enhancing Speaker Pelosi’s image with women as Gallup polls a majority in favor of impeachment and removal. So much Republican cowardice, especially in the US Senate, as #Trumpeachment continues. There could be an actual breaking point, even as history might suggest it is already…

For #Trumpeachment, there are more 'bad hombres' than the '3 Amigos'

Will Trump throw Mulvaney under the bus, as the rest of the ‘3 Amigos” — Gordon Sondland and Rick Perry come before the House committees, after Kurt Volker has already testified. Mick Mulvaney arranged meetings between Rudy and Don when Giuliani was bragging publicly about enlisting Ukranians to probe the Bidens. Mulvaney met frequently with Gordon Sondland, and hid…

#Trumpeachment – Fiona Hill is neither Kathy Griffin nor George Soros

Fiona Hill will appear before Congress today as the impeachment inquiry continues. The RWNJ troll-bots have been busily calling her a “George Soros mole”, even as one assumes that when she was appointed to the NSC in 2017 by Trump, any such association would have been disqualifying. But the current buzz by nutters is that…

Trump still vaguely threatening sanctions on Turkey, how empty are they?

Is sanctioning Turkey a kind of virtue signaling or is the Trump administration prepping the ground to lift Russian sanctions? In case you forgot that there was a monstrous steel imports tariff on Turkey that Trump promptly rescinded, because it’s virtuous to double a tariff then reduce it by 50% to appear like something happened. …

The White Man’s Last Stand

Growing up as a black kid in America, the running blaxploitation film theme was getting “the man” before he got you. Donald Trump is un-circling the wagons for the white man’s last stand.  That last statement is not a blanket thrown over every white man or woman in America, and if you feel offended maybe…

Republicans and their Willful Destruction of ‘The Constitution

I try really hard not to scream when I hear, “the both sides do it” argument, that is usually offered up by Republicans, whenever trouble strikes.  They pull out, “but what about…” instead of admitting a problem exist. Even as kids, we learned the folly of, “if Billy jumps off a cliff; will you?” Just…

Received this e-mail from former Congressman, U.S. Senate candidate and Presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke (D. TX), in support of JD Scholten’s (D. IA-04) congressional campaign: JD Scholten (D. IA-04) Steve King is Congress’ most out-in-the-open bigot. He’s well known for embracing the term “white supremacist.” This week, he told a packed club in Iowa that without “rape and…
