Is getting angry better than being nervous. One poll does not a victory make. Nate Cohn calls the Selzer poll result for Iowa a “miss”, but it does suggest a trend, like the closing state poll in Florida. More useful is Cohn’s conclusion that at this moment Biden wins with...

Trump reiterated yet another lie about “the previous administration” funding last night’s missile strike. The JCPOA released Iran’s money held since 1980. Trump’s withdrawal from the agreement compelled Iran to leave its compliance and announce it would resume work on nuclear enrichment that could be used for weapons. Nukes and...

The question of whether the Individual Mandate can be separated from the rest of the ACA (or some parts of the ACA), and therefore whether the entire ACA is unconstitutional, parts of the ACA beyond the individual mandate are also constitutional, or only the individual mandate is now unonstitutional, have...

At 1032 pm, Dear Leader tweeted another pathetic taunt in order to divert attention from the impeachment. This is Trump’s most-repeated lie of the Ukraine scandal, according to @ddale8. The whistleblower complaint was highly credible, and many of the key allegations have been confirmed by witnesses who testified. Here’s the...

The oddest disinformation so far has been a series of Ron Johnson media appearances that attempt to discredit Alexander Vindman. Johnson said Vindman might be among those bureaucrats who leak to the press "sabotage his policies and, if possible, remove him from office." pic.twitter.com/Mn5SHXUl06 — Christal Hayes (@Journo_Christal) November 18,...

Trump’s going to try to distract MSM with a new release of a second, April “transcript” which probably resembles the non-verbatim memorandum of a telcon from 25 July already released that confirms the arms for dirt scandal. It presumably will be as “perfect” as the first one. And just as diverting...

Trump’s narcissism could compel him to want to appear in his own defense before the Senate during his impeachment trial. Needless to say, that would be foolhardy and an historical spectacle, BUT WHAT RATINGS! We know that in the Mueller matter, Trump’s lawyers managed to prevail in preventing Trump from...

Even if he’s still a war criminal, John Bolton will get his place in history perhaps for a less ignominious act. In June, national security adviser John Bolton warned U.S. diplomats that Rudy Giuliani would prove to be a problem, much like “Washington lobbyist Robert Livingston kept popping up and recommending...

Today features more White House manufacturing of truth that resembles the Bill Barr “summary” of the Mueller report, as further contrasts will be drawn between conventional diplomacy and a Trumpian parallel activity of self-dealing. Two career diplomats will testify before House impeachment investigators Wednesday that President Trump displayed a deeply pessimistic...

Building one stunt upon another — after the House GOP bum’s rush yesterday on the SCIF, Lindsey Graham made up reasons contradictory to those he espoused in 1998 to object to the House’s investigation. Since the display was meant to satisfy the White House, it got little attention by MSM.  The...

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...

Trump had a Cabinet meeting today and said more nonsense, repeating his campaign rally talking points, as well as using the Cabinet meeting to make other announcements. This is the Pool report (#4-10). “You people with this phony Emoluments Clause,” Date: October 21, 2019 at 11:52:51 AM EDT Subject: Pool Report #4...

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...

It’s unfortunate that the criminality of someone so pathologically flawed as Trump requires a simple plot line like Ukraine-Gate, but when compared using some simple criteria the urgency of impeachment becomes clearer.  This is a qualitative hot take and appropriate caveats apply (the list is not comprehensive and the categories...

Like Jerry Falwell Jr and his pool boy, everybody’s got stakes in the Rapture.

A new article at Politico tries to isolate the justification for a presidential request from a foreign government(s). It only proves that the smoking gun is yet still a smoldering arsenal, now that there are multiple whistle-blowers. Here’s the big question on which the potential impeachment of President Donald Trump could...
