1) I think you'll find this a very encouraging thread: It's easy to get swamped (no pun intended) by all the crap going on in the nation's shithole, er, capital. But in case you lost track there are FIVE investigations of Ds going on plus the sex fund scandal:
2) The first, in no particular order: Sessions announced that he was reopening the Cankles e-mail investigation, and that it in fact has been going on "for months." (Yes, the same Sessions that people say "isn't doing anything" or is sitting in his rocker.)
3) Yesterday, the DOJ unsealed the indictment of the U1 guy, but his partner had been CONVICTED some time ago, meaning this investigation has been going on "for months" (by that same Sessions guy).
4) Sessions announced he was opening an investigation of Hezbollah/Iran.
1) Here is the reality, and part of the reason prosecuting the criminals in the FBI and elsewhere is taking so long:
2) It will . . . not MAY . . . will lead to Zero. I think everyone in DC knows this.
3) Regardless of whether "Sesssions has the guts to . . . ."
4) The larger issue is, "Is the public ready, really ready, to indict the first black president?"
5) I think the drip drip of leaks from Mulehead---ALL about his own agents under him (which should tell you something)---the congressionalcommittees, etc . . .
. . . were all designed to prepare the public for what is to come. It will likely start with low-level indictments against Deep Stroke, Ohr&UglyOhr, McInCabable, and Combover. Then it will work eventually up to the DNC and Cankles.
1) Interesting responses to the report that the Administration is considering moving elements of the Swamp outside of D.C. It has been suggested moving the Interior Department to the West, and parts of Silicon Valley have actually lobbied for various components of the bureaucracy
2) Consider, first, the background of how the capital came to be in D.C. in the first place:
3) Thomas Jefferson of Virginia and Alexander Hamilton of New York were locked in a vicious battle over Hamilton's economic plan (especially the "assumption" of state debts by the feds
4) As part of the compromise to get Jefferson's "republicans" as they were called (NO relationship to today's GOP or the modern Dems, contrary to popular belief), a deal was struck.
1) @rushlimbaugh had a good discussion today about how the so-called "conservative" neverTrumpers like Broken Kristol and Goldburger now have absolutely no real reason for opposing Trump.
He has been more conservative than ANY of their preferred candidates.
2) But in fact it raises a much more serious point. Are people like them-and Schmitt and Succubus and some of the GOPe golddiggers-are they really "conservative?" Have they ever been?
3) Because if so, you would welcome and celebrate what Trump has done, regardless of the style
4) I think, quite the contrary, they were "convenient conservatives" who found a nice living in writing articles, getting on shows, advising clients for big bucks, all the while NEVER having to worry about conservatism getting actually implemented.
1) For those of you watching the Sessions interrogation, a little history. (cliff notes version: YOU WON'T LEARN ANYTHING)
2) From 1942 to 1946 the House and Senate held FIVE investigations into the "causes" of the surprise attack and defeat at Pearl Harbor.
3) They did not, and could not learn anything.
4) This was because witnesses could not, or would not, tell them anything.
5) Were the witnesses hiding something? Yes.
6) The important witnesses---those with something to actually say---were prohibited from revealing the existence of Operation MAGIC, our code breaking operations against the Japanese had already broken several secret codes & would in 1942 provide the basis for the Midway victory.
