A few things…

Well…as you have seen if you’ve been here before, I normally don’t come back for a second one of these on Fridays…after shooting pool and drinking beer, I just don’t have the motivation to do a second one…but, I’m sitting here waiting for it to be cocktail time and just read about a couple of things that I wanted to comment on…first, a story just came out that the staffers in the WH have been researching impeachment like crazy over the past few days and I find that just so damn funny…I wonder if it’s to defend against it or how to make it happen? Whatever it is, it is never a good sign when your staff is starting to think impeachment is a real possibility. Then there is the hot mike moment when Paul Ryan and his partners in crime were caught talking about the idiot trump and his collusion with Russia…showing that they knew that Russia was meddling in the election and did nothing about it since trump was being helped…and Ryan was heard telling everyone to keep it a secret since they were “family”….now, this lays this conspiracy right at the feet of repub leaders…I’ll bet McConnell new about it, too….and these guys should really worry about this since they could be spending time with trump in prison….okay, I guess I can hope that this will happen…impeach….

117 days to a special counsel…

Well…if you didn’t already think that the idiot trump’s administration wasn’t the most corrupt in the history of the US, you just have to look at the events that happened today. After only 117 days in office, a special counsel was appointed today to look into all of the Russian connections with trump’s campaign and the obstruction of justice that was reveled by James Comey last week. Now, a cynic would think the the acting AG in this matter was helping trump out by slowing down the current investigations with this appointment…but who he appointed spells dire trouble for trump and his cronies. The appointment went to a former FBI director, Robert Mueller, who has shown that he has the integrity and the non-partisanship to ensure that the investigation will be fair and thorough. So, run for the hills, trump…you’r going down…..

Trump fires Comey….

Well…did anyone else see this coming? As the noose closes around trump and his cronies, trump flails around like the wounded elephant that he is and fires the FBI director….the reaction to this obstruction of justice has been varied on the web from “we’re all screwed” to “this just shows how desperate trump is”…..I’m not sure how I feel about this just yet but I still have a little faith in our institutions and think there are enough ethical folks out there working on these investigations that won’t let this deter them from doing their jobs…like the NY AG who is working on trump money laundering and many other crimes that his gang have committed. And the grand jury in VA that has already issued RICO warrants that are yet to be served…and that is where Comey was for his last day of work….talking to that grand jury and I’m sure that is one of the reasons they fired him today…but, trump is so damn stupid and doesn’t understand how government works that he thinks that firing the director will stop all of the investigations…what does he expect all of the FBI agents to do? Just sit at their desks and play on Facebook until a new director is named? Not gonna happen…the stink of desperation is all over this….impeach…

Clinton and trump treated the same?

Well….have been reading a little about Comey’s testimony in the senate today and most of the response from the idiot repubs come from the WH playbook…that the only problem is that people were leaking information to the press….not that Comey put his thumb on the election scale and cost Clinton the election. When asked about that by dem senators, Comey answered that he treated both trump and Clinton the same….okay, let talk about that a minute…where was the letter to the house about trump’s ties to Russia when Comey just couldn’t wait to let the house know that they had found duplicate e-mails on someone else’s computer? In his testimony today, Comey even admitted that he knew that his letter about Clinton  would be leaked to the press by the repubs…but now he is “nauseous” that it happend and the he “may” have affected the election. This is bullshit…he knew damn well what he was doing would damage Clinton and he did it anyway….being a lifelong Clinton hater he even allowed the NY office of the FBI to work openly to help elect trump…and no amount of bullshit backfilling is going to change how much damage he has done to the US and the world…what a load of crap…..

Bye, bye Jason…

Well…a small smile came to my face this morning when I read that the trump shill, Jason Chaffetz, won’t run for re-election in his safe Utah seat 2018. I guess he’s not cashing in enough being in congress and I’m sure he will end up on the wingnut welfare circuit and make a few million dollars a year being a lobbyist or go to work for fox news. I wonder if this has anything to do with the information he has seen concerning the trump collusion with Russia? I wonder even more if he sees himself being caught up in the investigation…after all, he was involved with the trump campaign and it seem like everyone that had a finger in that rotten pie is going to go to jail. All I have to day is good riddance….maybe the protesters who have shouting “do your job” about the trump investigation he has been stalling have had an effect…impeach trump….

Trump on tape?

Well…just read of a new report that there is a tape of trump offering to make policy that would be helpful to the Russians if they would help hack the election…and this is being reported by the same reporter in England that broke the story that trump and his cronies were were caught on tape by multiple intelligence agencies and by the FBI talking to the Russians. Now these sooper geniuses thought that by physically carrying the tape to the Russians that no one would find out about it…but, you hand a loaded gun to Putin and you don’t think he is going to use it? The big thing here is that since trump has gotten away with multiple crimes throughout his life, he didn’t think there would be any danger to doing the same thing in the election…to use the Russians to commit treason and steal the election….now, I wonder if THIS will be enough for the repubs to do their jobs and impeach this asshole…nope, probably not….impeach….

It’s all just a distraction…

Well…trump just threw away 130 million dollars of our tax money by firing 58 cruise missiles at Syria last night…and predictably, the media is fawning all over the idiot…saying that it makes him look “presidential”, but lets take a look at the reality of this attack. First, the Russians were told of the attack who told the Syrians about it and the Syrians moved all of the personnel and equipment that the attack was supposed to destroy….so, 130 million dollars to put a few holes in a runway? Nope, to distract the media from the growing trump/Russia investigation…this has been trump’s pattern throughout the campaign and after he was “elected” and what better way to get people to stop talking about it? In trump’s mind…if he has one….he timed the attack to coincide with  the Chinese premier’s visit to make him look tough and bully them into trade concessions…which is never going to work with the Chinese or anyone else since they already know that trump is not too bright and they can out maneuver him all day long. The fallout from the attack is going to take many forms and none of them are going to be good…it started with the Russians announcing they are going to give the Syrians advanced anti aircraft systems to protect them from further attacks and really strengthened Assad since the Russians support him and are going to pour in more support of men and material. Trump is one of the dumbest people in the world and just proved it last night…impeach….

 

Richard Burr may save the country…

Well…with the meltdown of Devin Nunes and his destruction of the credibility of the house intelligence committee that is supposed to be investigating trump’s collusion with the Russians to steal the election, the only hope I see to save this country from trump is a republican senator from NC, Richard Burr. I watched a piece on Laurence O’Donnell’s show where he was interviewed and he and his dem counterpart, Mark Warner, made all the right noises and it appeared he understands what his job is…to get to the truth, not to protect anyone and he even mentioned that some people may go to jail as a result of his investigation….contrast that to Nunes erratic behavior where he has been coordinating with the white house to derail any investigation….I have hope that senator Burr will do what another NC senator, Sam Ervin, did during Watergate…hold people responsible for breaking the law….this country is hanging by a thread…impeach….

Where were you in July, Comey?

Well…there is a hearing going on in the house today with James Comey on the Russian collusion with trump to throw the election his way….there have been a few things that have come out that are eye opening to say the least….that the FBI has a counter intelligence operation going that involves Russia and the trump campaign and have had one since last July…and that means that they are pretty sure the Russians were using the trumpsters to spy here in the US…and they are sure that the Russian actions were meant to hurt Hillary and help trump…they were not the innocuous “meetings” that trump has said they were but part of a Russian intelligence gathering operation. I don’t see how that is much different from what Comey did before the election…he was trying to throw it it trump, too. But, let’s give him the benefit of the doubt for a while… a very little while….the worst part of the hearing is the sick display that the repubs are putting on, not even trying to get to the bottom of the Russian interference…they think the Huuuge crime here is that someone leaked that there was criminal behavior going on, not the criminal behavior itself. This is your modern repub party folks…party before country, party before doing the job the American people elected them to do….so much for the party of the supposed patriots…they are perfectly fine that Russia threw the election…just as long as it’s to their guy….impeach…

Why did Preet Bharara hold out?

Well…with the blood bath Friday where 46 district attorneys were asked to resign, the question needs to be asked is why did Preet Bharara refuse and then was fired? Could it be that he was investigating trump and his cronies and their use by Putin in stealing the election? I think that is part of it…and asking for the resignations has been done before…but in an orderly manner with replacements ready in the wings…but we all know that trump and his cronies in the government don’t believe in the rule of law so they don’t think these posts are needed…and I also think that some of the attorneys were getting close to trump so they had to do something to derail the investigations. And that is where the Bharara firing comes in….he knew what he had on trump and he also knew that if he waited to be fired, that would add another charge to those trump had coming…that his firing would be obstruction of justice that would take down both trump and sessions…and the extra day in office with access to the investigation’s information would allow him to ensure that the  crony of trump that was appointed to replace him wouldn’t be able to scuttle the investigation by making the evidence go away. With everything that is now being exposed, trump should be impeached today and he and his cronies who colluded with Russia need to be in jail….
