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…

Path to the bunker: “he's in the hospitality business”

Because someone in the hospitality business would want to jail and relocate the homeless away from hotels, put refugees in detention camps, and separate children from families Dear @realDonaldTrump: Wow, Mick Mulvaney admits your personal business interests will affect decisions you make because that's who you are at the end of the day. Can you please…

The 2019 “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done” 3rd Quarter Report

Since the Trump Presidency began back in January 2017, we have endeavored to maintain a comprehensive listing of all the administrations misdeeds in the Everything Awful The Trump Administration Has Done Omnibus (full list here), and have attempted to categorize and score them accordingly. Today is October 20th, which means that as of noon today we are now…

Trump tried to tweet #StopTheCoup and got pwnd … #ThePresidentIsACrybaby

Yesterday, PABOTUS tried to get the #StopTheCoup trending, only to be met with #ThePresidentIsACrybaby. x Actually, there is a coup going on, only it's not coming from outside the Trump administration, but as in all horror stories, it's coming from within, led by Trump & his lackeys & henchmen, like Bill Barr, Nick Mulvaney, &…

There's no constitutional crisis: just impeach Trump for bribery

Ari Melber keeps it simple. Less nuance, it’s right in the damn Constitution. You don’t even have to utter a dead language. Perspective: "Bribery" is right there in the Constitution. Trump could be impeached for that. https://t.co/vcXayzUWow — The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) October 19, 2019 Amid a series of House investigations, however, and several public,…

Trumpian Greenwashing: Russian media racketeering and suppressing the 2020 vote

Russia’s useful idiots are also proxies. In a bid to repeat 2016, the swing states will have third-party efforts as well as support for non-Democratic efforts. In this case the self-proclaimed “environmentalist” declares that he supports the Green Party, but not really. Like greenwashing, it’s bait-and-switch. Crooked Hillary Clinton just called the respected environmentalist and Green…

Rooney Will Not Run for Re-election

Remember Francis Rooney (R-FL)? Yesterday he said he was open to impeaching Trump: Rooney, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee at the center of the inquiry, said Friday that he had not yet come to a conclusion on whether the President committed a crime that compels his removal from office, a striking view…

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….

The “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done So Far” Omnibus (Week 143)

As part of the ongoing project to catalog every awful thing the Trump Administration has done as a reference for future political arguments and whatever few posterity survives to see 2020, here’s everything awful the Trump Administration has done this week.

BREAKING NEWS: Elijah Cummings Dies at 68

My sympathies are felt for all in his district, a great loss to our country and especially to the families of a great legislator and human full of compassion and fairness. This is a sad day in America.  Rep. Cummings was 68 years old. This is a developing story of the cause of death but…

Will Gordon Sondland, the “Second Amigo”, corroborate Individual-1's role in Arms for Dirt

House impeachment hearings continue with EU ambassador Gordon Sondland today. Lawmakers plan to grill Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland on Thursday about a private discussion he had with top Ukrainian officials in the White House in which he explicitly mentioned the Ukrainian gas company linked to Hunter Bidenhttps://t.co/RisiWENu0G — Christina Lutz 🇪🇺 (@ChristinaLutz17)…

Paranoid Trump is convinced John Bolton shivved him over Ukraine

And, you know, he’s probably right. I mean, John Bolton is what you’d get if the demon from Child’s Play had possessed Orville Redenbacher instead. That caramel corn-looking motherfucker is evil to the core. The Daily Beast: In the course of casual conversations with advisers and friends, President Trump has privately raised suspicions that a spiteful…

“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…

The MOAT (Mother of All Tweeters)

The last time the President told the press to ask my lawyer, Michael Cohen was subsequently fitted for a numbered orange jumpsuit.  Well, Rudy, I think your right profile is your best side and black and white stripes say GQ federal prison. You remember in 2018 aboard Airforce One when the President, with obvious guilt…

Even more Trump nonsense this week as disinformation spews at the White House

After trying to orchestrate a reality-TV moment with grieving parents, more craziness in the White House. Daniel Dale has counted all of last week’s lies.

Why Fox News is getting trounced in the public opinion battle over Trump impeachment

Shepard Smith's recent, abrupt resignation isn’t the only crisis Fox News is facing these days. Aside from allegations that conservatives simply will not tolerate any dissenting voices amid a chorus that worships Donald Trump, the right-wing cable news outlet is struggling as it tries to fight the public opinion battle over impeachment. The unfolding inquiry in the…

Sen. Murphy: Fiona Hill testified that there was a quid pro quo

Yeah, this seems significant: 🚨Fiona Hill describes this scene: In a White House meeting, Sondland tells Ukrainians they will get a Trump meeting if they open the investigations Trump wants. Then, Sondland follows the Ukrainians out of the meeting to privately make clear he's talking about Hunter Biden. — Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) October 15, 2019…

Trump angrily tweets, 'Impeach the Pres.' Sure, if you say so

This dunce. Just out: MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME IS AT THE HIGHEST POINT EVER, EVER, EVER! How about saying it this way, IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY! Also, MORE PEOPLE WORKING TODAY IN THE USA THAN AT ANY TIME IN HISTORY! Tough numbers for the Radical Left Democrats to beat! Impeach the Pres. — Donald…

Liz Cheney blames slaughter of Kurds on … Democrats

Well, she didn’t specifically call out Obama or Hillary Clinton, but give it a few days. On Fox News this morning, Liz Cheney, a Republican congresswoman from Wyoming and the daughter of the massing heap of discarded organs and tissue that used to be Dick Cheney, blamed Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria on — you guessed…

#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. …

Some of Trump's Ukraine CT narrative came from a RWNJ columnist, now at Fox News

Apparently John Solomon is Individual-1’s Pat Buchanan and William Safire. John Solomon, now at Fox News, seems to be the nutter whose shaky ideas about Democrats in Ukraine diffused to Trump. Even Ken Vogel points the finger at Solomon. A Lot Of Trump’s Ukraine Conspiracy Theories Come From One Right-Wing Columnist There’s a direct line between…

Trump golfs during #ImpeachNow rallies in 60 cities

GOP congressman: Trump's decision to abandon Kurds is 'weak' and 'depressing'

Welcome to consensus reality, Rep. Kinzinger! Adam Kinzinger, a Republican congressman from Illinois, has at last seen what any non-cult member with eyes realized long ago: Donald Trump is a weak, whiny poseur who acts tough but has the gravitas of a rarefied mouse fart. Appearing on Face the Nation this morning, Kinzinger stated the obvious:…

Sondland to Testify Trump Told Him to Text ‘No Quid Pro Quo.”

Gordon Sondland, the mercurial hotelier turned EU Ambassador who first stated he would not testify in the impeachment inquiry, then changed course to say he would, will testify this week that drumpf told him to text acting Ukrainian Ambassador William B. Taylor that there was no quid pro quo in his dealings with Ukrainian President…

How the GOP Can Convict Trump without Voting Him Out

I just found this story in the Washingtonian via Political Wire: The Impeachment Loophole No One’s Talking About The gist of it is that, according to Lawrence Tribe, there is a way, spelled out in the Constitution, that the Republicans in the Senate can let Trump be impeached AND removed from office without doing anything…
