Again…this is not how it works..

Well…another day, another jaw dropping bit of stupidity by the moron in chief when he opened his mouth and farted this out…that if the dems in the House impeach him, he will go to the supreme court to stop it…and he believes his toadies that were installed there illegally by Mitch McConnell will tell the house that they can’t do it…and one of his reasons is that he already survived the Mueller investigation and that the House has no authority to investigate since he was already investigated. Yeah, the logic of a 7 year old being spouted by the so-called president…damn, do I have to keep pointing out how ignorant this ass is? That is not how any of this works…in precedent that runs almost all the way back to the founding of the country…every damn court including the supreme court has ruled that the courts cannot interfere with the constitutionally mandated powers of investigation and impeachment of the co-equal legislative branch…so, even if stupid boy tries to go there, even Kavanaugh should rule that he has no standing to bring that kind of suit…unless he has had his daily 12 pack and then all bets are off. This is what happens when someone so glaringly ignorant is put in a position of power…he thinks he can make things up as he goes along and the law is what he wants it to be…and, even the repubs have to know they need to do something to stop this idiot from nuking the entire party…impeach….

None of it was “fake news”…

Well…after having a few days to digest what is in the still redacted Mueller report, one thing stands out that is not getting enough attention and that is the “fake news” that the idiot trump has railed against in his spittle flecked tweets is NOT fake…in fact the reporting from the NYT, the Washington Post, and every other news outlet has been shown to be accurate…that trump DID get help from the Russians whether or not they did it wittingly, and they DID meet with Russians throughout the campaign, and they DID pass information to the Russians for reasons that Giuliani says is just peachy. One little thing that trump and his minions won’t acknowledge is that the counter intelligence investigation is still ongoing with the FBI still looking at Russia’s role in the election and I’ll speculate that there are still more indictments coming from that side of the investigation…let’s remember that the counter intelligence information never made it into the Mueller report but all of the information that Mueller found was handed over to embedded FBI agents who are still working on it and other prosecutors can still bring charges from that information…something that was also reported and was not “fake news”. The reporters also got most of the details right on the obstruction of justice that trump engaged in almost daily and the Mueller report confirms that, too….but, that didn’t stop the moron in chief from rage tweeting this morning that the NYT owes him an “apology” for their reporting just like he lied and said they did before…which never happened. So, I’ll ask you guys…who do you trust….the news media that got damn near everything right about trump and his crimes or the serial liar that squats in the WH? With trump’s approval rating now dropping like a rock after Mueller, it appears that people are wising up to the Russian plant in the WH….now it’s time to get started on impeachment of this criminal…

Impeach trump already…

Well…with all of the hand wringing on the dems part about the political risks of impeaching the criminal in the WH, I think that they are missing the damn point…it is the House’s job to impeach idiot boy now that there is absolutely no doubt he’s a  criminal who has committed crimes while in office…house dems have no choice but to ignore those risks if they value this country more than the repubs do and get on with impeachment…we all know that the repubs in the senate won’t convict even though trump’s crimes are clear…but, that’s not the point…the point is that we need to protect this country from trump and we cannot ignore that he is still committing crimes every day and I think the dems are misreading the political winds…the idiot’s approval rating is down to 37% with almost 68% of the country believing that he committed crimes, and I think if the dems do a good job of explaining why they are doing what they are doing in relatable terms…such as “if someone robbed your house but he was a powerful mayor, for example, who no one is holding accountable for his crimes, how would you feel?” The ads against the repubs who voted to keep a criminal in office would write themselves…such as: “you follow the law, why doesn’t the president have to?” I really don’t care for the conventional wisdom that says dems have to be careful…bullshit…it’s time to start repairing the damage the repubs and trump have done to this country..and that starts with investigations and impeachment…

Still just damn exhausted…

Well…I am not sure what is going on but even after taking a nap this afternoon, I am still damn exhausted and I’m not sure at all why…oh, well…I really was going to do one on politics this afternoon but I am not motivated to do it…I think I’m in overload after the Mueller report and the 24/7 reporting on that….one little bit of detail that has come out is that Mueller ended his report after Barr was appointed since he knew that Barr was there to protect trump and he knew that no other prosecutions would be approved…and that was another reason why Mueller didn’t indict trump for obstruction of justice…with Barr now supervising, there would be no independence for the independent counsel, just Barr breaking his oath to protect the constitution and doing nothing but protecting trump. I am looking forward to Mueller coming in front of congress next month where he’ll get the chance to expose Barr’s interference in his work and make it clear once and for all that trump is a criminal who needs to go…impeach…oh, hey, I guess I did have a political one in me…yay…

Let’s let Gotti know he’s under investigation…

Well…you know, I think I’m losing my ability to be surprised at how little the rule of law means to the repubs these days…the supposed “law and order” party has been exposed as the lawbreaker party and there is more of it every damn day. One jaw dropper that the Mueller report exposed is that Richard Burr, the repub chair of the senate intelligence committee ran to the White House to give trump and his lawyers information that was in a private FBI briefing on the Russia probe about who was a target of the probe. Now, let that sink in a minute…a senior repub senator is briefed on confidential FBI investigation and then gives the targets a heads up so they can figure out how to obstruct the investigation…now, let’s try a little exercise here to really drive home how serious this is…all you have to do is replace trump’s lawyers and trump with mobster John Gotti’s lawyers and John Gotti and then see if it’s all perfectly fine that Burr tipped off the subject of an investigation. Doesn’t seem right, does it? Of course it isn’t….if this was anyone else but a powerful senator, they would be sitting in jail right now for obstruction of an FBI investigation….what happens now? Do the rest of the repubs in the senate censure him? Okay…I’m laughing at that one, too…of course they won’t…they’ll probably just pat him on the back and say “good job” for protecting their criminal in the WH…when the hell does this crap end? Impeach…

A couple of things we now know…

Well…with the redacted Barr report being released this morning, we know a couple of things…that the Mueller report does not “exonerate” the idiot trump at all…not on collusion with the Russians or with the issue of obstruction of justice as Barr would have the country think by his lie filled press conference before the report was released. We do know that Barr is now complicit in the coverup of trump’s criminality and should be removed from his post or resign before he does more damage to the Justice Department…does he not know that people are going to read the report and see how he was lying his ass of this morning? We also know that Mueller followed the rules that a sitting president can’t be indicted and that is why there were no indictments of trump…not that there was not enough evidence to charge him but that he was only following the rules…one little tidbit that was exposed from the report is that the evidence of trump’s criminality is being preserved for further action after idiot boy is out of office…and that there are still 12 or more investigations related to the report that are still ongoing that may lead to charges being filed. Let’s be clear on one point here, that the Russians DID work to elect trump…and no matter how much the repub bleaters still try to say that it’s just “sour grapes” that the dems have focused on that point…not that we care about our country but just sour grapes. I do have more to talk about, but I need to digest some of this new info to make a lucid comment…but, cripes…trump is a criminal…that much is clear….impeach…

This is interesting…

Well…since it has now become clear that William Barr sees his job as protecting the idiot president versus upholding the law, there have been some interesting developments in a case that was brought before a judge by a news organization using FOIA to get the entire Mueller report…now, this judge didn’t rule that he will order the report to be released, but he did say that he is going to look at the entire report to see if the redactions done by Barr and his team of lawbreakers are really necessary…and he has also said that he finds the fact that Barr is muddying the waters around the report “troubling” and has telegraphed the he doesn’t think Barr is following the law or legal precedent in the case. So, on this front, Barr is losing the fight to keep the damaging parts of the report secret, just as he did when he tried this crap before while he argued that kidnapping foreign nationals was supported by a “secret” report that he “summarized”…sound familiar? Just this morning, Jerry Nadler, the chair of the Judiciary committee in the House, has signaled that he has had enough of Barr’s crap and is preparing a subpoena for the entire Mueller report and all of the supporting materials that will be delivered to Barr Friday which means it should end up in court by the early part of next week when Barr refuses to follow the law and honor it. I wonder if Barr is so dumb that he doesn’t see that he has fallen into the trump mire and is opening himself up to contempt of congress charges at least, and obstruction of justice charges if the congress wants to play hardball…which they should to protect the rule of law. So, the next few days are going to be interesting but I don’t think the bastardized Barr report is going to show anything when it is released tomorrow…we’ll see…impeach…

A new record…

Well…trump and his idiot minions just set a new record…one that no administration in the history of the country even came close to…after being confirmed 4 days ago, the new Secretary of the Interior, David Bernhardt, is already under investigation for ethics violations…only the best people…trump only hires the best people…the investigation has been prompted by multiple requests by lawmakers owing to the clear conflicts of interest he showed while working for the last corrupt Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke, and meeting just with oil and gas companies, then giving them everything they wanted…rolling back regulations to give these companies almost free access to public lands along with gutting regulations protecting endangered species. Oh, and after the Deepwater Horizon explosion that polluted the Gulf of Mexico, this guy was the one pushing weakening safety regulations so the oil companies will never have to pay when they are responsible for the pollution that comes after these accidents. So, one frickin day is all it took for this guy to be under investigation…and the repubs are doing what they always do when a repub is found to be ethically challenged…ignore it and diminish it….until it’s a dem…impeach…

Still thinking…

Well…it has been kind of a busy day today with cooking my 16 pound turkey for lunch and then getting out on the bike (in shorts) for a ride before I came back here…the problem is that I’m still thinking about a topic right now and haven’t been able to figure one out. So, let’s just start and see what happens…idiot boy trump is in meltdown mode today after it was announced on his teevee that the Barr report is going to be issued Thursday…you notice I didn’t say the Mueller report since it no longer is Mueller’s after Barr edited it to protect trump…and it was revealed that Barr misled the congress at least once before to justify for his bosses at the DOJ that the kidnapping of foreign nationals without the permission of the country where they lived was just peachy…and then they proceeded to grab Manuel Noriega and bring to the US…the only problem was that his “summary” in that case was misleading, according to the congressional committee who had to subpoena that background info that Barr used to write his opinion…and once misleading, always misleading when it comes to Barr…and it looks like another subpoena is going to be necessary to get the Mueller report and it’s background material…so, Barr has been a partisan hack since at least 1989…surprise, surprise…impeach…

A little Monday surprise

Well…I think this one has kind of flown under the radar of the trump scandal tornado but it could really be an important day in getting the information that will prove just how big of a criminal trump is. Tomorrow, the accounting firm who does accounting for all of trump’s businesses will receive a subpoena from chairman Neal of the Ways and Means committee to produce all of the financial records of all of those businesses, along with all communications with trump and his criminal organization (including his children) and all underlying information that trump provided to the firm…and there is not a damn thing that trump can do to stop it…the firm even requested the subpoena in response to the letter sent by Neal just to protect themselves from liability….they can’t be sued by trump for following a legal order to turn over the information, and the adults in charge there are surely not going to die on this hill for trump since they know that he is a criminal who has tried to use this firm to break the law in the past by lying to them on financial statements he provided. So, it may be a pretty interesting meltdown day from trump tomorrow…or tonight as it always is when he is being exposed as the criminal that he is. Impeach….
