Vox - The campaign to oust Rod Rosenstein is heating up after the Nunes memos release

It does not matter that Nunes little list of talking points is bullshit. You do not matter. The point of the memo is to give Fox News and other RW media outlets a plausible story line to justify Trump firing Rosenstein and Mueller.

Looking ahead, once Trump has his cronies in the DOJ and FBI, he can use them to attack his political adversaries Putin style. If you were curious about how a Democratic country can slip into dictatorship, this is how it goes.

The Nunes memo has been released — and the conservative drumbeat demanding the firing of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is getting louder.

The Tea Party Patriots, a conservative activist group, put out an ad Friday that bluntly states: “It’s time for Rod Rosenstein to do his job or resign.”

The ad claims that Rosenstein’s “incompetence and abuse of power” have “undermined congressional investigations” and tarnished the reputation of the Justice Department.

It also calls him “a weak careerist at the Justice Department, protecting liberal Obama holdovers and the deep state, instead of following the rule of law.” (Trump appointed Rosenstein to his position in the Justice Department; he had previously served as the longtime US attorney in Maryland. He was appointed to that position by George W. Bush, in 2005.)

4. Will a Republican Fox Viewer Even Notice?

At the end of the day, so long as Trump and Republicans have an entire media infrastructure that insulates their voters from reality, Republicans will be able to count on almost 40 percent of voters to oppose impeachment.

5. I know. Not good.

Not much we can do about them. And in fact does it matter?
I don;t know.

But everybody else-- mainly those who do not pay attention- need to have plastered in front of them that the USA is being taken down by enemies without and within. And it is now or never.

Otherwise, they will just drive on by whatever protesters are out... just keep going on the way to the grocery store, soccer, work, whatever..

Anyway.. just my take.

I am NOT confident at all.
