Ass Kicking

Comrade Trump’s White House is a well-oiled machine.

I’m not a reliable narrator, as they say in Who Dunnit books, but so far (and this is no red herring) Adam Schiff has handed the Republicans their asses on a platter. Pat Cipollone and Jay Sekulow essentially rebutted with the legalese of “and you’re ugly, too.” I don’t know if they were not prepared or if they are truly in the cult and drank the Kool Aid?

I’m not kidding. Their defense reads like a 4th grader’s project where he wings it because he didn’t do the work. It’s almost embarassing, defense by Meme or LOLcat would be as effective. Here’s a taste:

This thread from Aaron Rupar gives you a taste (click on the date stamp and it will take you to Twitter where you can read the whole thing):

And now, the fix is in:

And so much for the Very Concerned Caucus:

And so now the entire GOP Senate are accomplices after-the-fact.

  1. They’re just talking to an audience of one. They don’t have to put on a defense..#MoscowMitch has seen to that.

    This shit is worse than shit. Truly, we need to take to the streets. I don’t know what it will take to get millions of angry citizens organized, though. We did do that in Jan. 2017, but, after three years, I think people are so tired of this crap, they have no energy to carry pitchforks. Let alone use them.

      Purplehead –

      It’s not the 1960s and it is not Vietnam, and protesters do not have their own skin on the line drafted to go to a war to die on the other side of the world. The stakes were higher and the boomers —the largest generation ever— lives were on the line. The vast majority of the boomers now are the senior citizens who are supporting Trump.

      Taking the streets does nothing as we’ve seen from the Iraq War protests and the Women’s march. Marches make the marchers happy, but that’s about it. Those of us paying attention to the politics of the moment are a very small minority of the population.

      I really don’t have an answer except to vow to do whatever it takes to vote all the Republicans out of office.

        Protesting and blocking streets – and therefore commerce – in several European cities the past summer had a minimal effect, but enough citizens were outraged to the point of civil disobedience that it worked somewhat. I think the problem is the Prozac in the water, or whatever they’re dosing us with, because we’re far too compliant and lackadaisical. If a million (or more) people jammed the streets of DC for a week or two, I bet something would get done. Maybe there HAS to be mob violence of some sort, to get the point across that we mean what we’re protesting about/for.

        There’s strength in numbers, there’s no denying that, but if things get ugly, and the rioting starts, I believe the Use of Lethal Force will be ordered. If only there was some happy medium, someone charismatic enough to direct large crowds, hell – if there were even one crowd large enough, it might make a difference.

        What have we got to lose? Only this grand experiment in Representation that may have been doomed at birth.

        Many of us boomers hate Trump with the heat of 10,000 suns.
        But I take your point: most of his supporters seem to be boomers, and I just don’t understand that.

    The thing that flabbergasts me is their unswerving loyalty to a venal boob who would betray them in a second.

      They don’t care, just as long as Trump will sign everything they’ve ever wanted into law.

        Oh, that’s true, Aurora, we’ve speculated that for a while.

        I keep wondering at what point do they to a cost-benefit analysis and decide that they’ve gotten all they can out of him for their donors and then cut him loose.

        You can only be a useful idiot for so long before you just become an idiot, methinks.




  4. So basically there is no law in America anymore? Swearing an oath doesn’t mean anything? No more perjury just anarchy? can we set fire to shit also? No penalties? Goon rules?

    Midnight Mitch stacked the deck against democracy. The Democrats performed brilliantly Tuesday and came across as the party of intelligence, conviction, and truth. The Republicans looked stupid, confused, and ill-prepared. And Justice Roberts is a mealy-mouth coward.

    But they have the numbers, and none of them has the guts to vote for the truth. So this all will end with an acquittal, which we’ve all known deep down inside.

    So we tune out the Trump gloating for the rest of the year and we get out the vote, we call our representatives and push for the laws sitting on McConnell’s desk to be passed, and we campaign like mad for Democrats. That’s how we beat them.
