I'm really effin' tired of this shit.

Every day, another scandal in this administration, not just of amorality, but involving national security, corruption, etc.

I hope there is time to investigate them all, but I'd settle for something that gets their collective asses thrown in the hoosegow.

1. That's because it is a criminal organization

The whole administration has to agree to no-disclosures and pledge loyalty to Trump. I would like to think a RICO sweep would take the whole mob-lot down and take everything they have raped, ravaged, and pillaged from the bastards. Unfortunately, they have taken our top offices and are stuffing our courts with their goons as we speak.

4. Early on Mueller dished off the RICO stuff to NY

This is a good thing so as to avoid the pardons. Cohen is singing again. They flipped the guy who ran the Trump Foundation and Trump Inc. They flipped Pecker over at the Enquirer. They have probably flipped hundreds of low level flunkies. When the indictments come they will be massive.

13. Couldn't agree more Kentuck

Most people I associate with totally and completely agree that the one thing we all have in common is that we have never in our lives felt so hopeless and helpless to do anything. It is like watching, in slow motion, a colossal car wreck you are about to be in that you know will end your world.

Regardless of what happens....TRUMP AND THE REPUBS ARE NOT GOING TO LOOSE THE ELECTION, BY HOOK OR CROOK. Mark my words......this is it for all time........and no one knows it better than Republicans, the party of mean, nasty, psychopath, fascist, tyrants. We are in the final days of what will be called: "The Fall of The American Empire", just like the fall of the Roman Empire.

5. They flaunt the law constantly with no repercussions at all!

The black and white law is ignored by Trumpees over and over and no one can do anything about it.
If anyone complains there is a lawsuit that will take months or years to resolve.

It seems the law is toothless and has no validity if you can indiscriminately ignore it with no consequences.
I sure hope this is fixed when the government changes.

41. We have an AG who is complicit. There will be no legal consequences until he is gone.

That doesn't mean that his crimes are being ignored. There are dozens of investigations going on, and will have evidence ready for when he and his enablers no longer have Barr preventing indictment.

This is one of Trump's strategies - parade around saying and doing what he wants to get a "fuck yeah!" from his supporters, and to infuriate those "liberal snowflakes" so they are at each others throats blaming each other for not stopping him - when there isn't because of Barr and McConnell.

It's important to remember that, and not fall for it.

44. Yes, even Barr will face consequences once we take the Presidency and he is fired.

He and all the top level DOJ laywers need to be fired, many indicted and actually prosecuted under the law. They have serially abused the Constitution, Federal laws and now even whistleblower laws. Their advice to Trump borders on treasonous if not also seditious advice.

So when all the NY indictments comes he will transfer his money overseas and sneak out.

He will start by saying he is saving us money by hiring his own security.

12. That's one of a dozen possibilities.

I imagine that he might just suddenly leave, even while in office and disappear only to be found in a well off country that has no extradition. He will be accepted there because he will promise them a huge influx of tourism dollars which will be spent at his local Trump Towers. His family will live there too.

Or, he’ll do it when the New Democratic POTUS and FLOTUS move into the White House. He’ll make his getaway while all the cameras and pundits attention are on the new First Couple. We’ll all be distracted too, being insanely, wildly, joyfully dancing in the streets!

There will be quite a few Republican disappearances too.

16. It's exhausting.

I was exhausted with Pussy Grabber before the 2016 campaign even started. I was so relieved just before election day, as I thought he would lose the election and wouldn't be able to project himself as much. Little did I know that Pussy Grabber would be polluting the White House with his band of liars and crooks, and we'd be listening to the fact-challenged Sarah Huckabee Sanders OR Pussy Grabber, himself, on an hourly basis. Oh yes, Ms. KellyAnne Conway was ubiquitous on television, throwing in her 2 cents on every show-- all eager to book that peddler of "alternative facts."

I am so outraged, and I am so exhausted with being outraged, but I cannot prevent myself from it. Pussy Grabber-- he has to go. He has to go. This is too important. We cannot survive another term with that vile piece of shit. And I want to see him go to PRISON. He can take Lewandowski with him. Hell, he can take ALL of them with him. It seems that a prerequisite for induction into the Pussy Grabber Crime Family is to be a crook oneself.

There will be no stopping him from his assignment from Vlad of destroying USA from the inside. He will try to jail as many of his enemies and others that he is jealous of. I'd like to feel hopeful that the Democrats will win but I did that last time. I would like to hope for a blue wave and that the pendulum will swing in our favor and change will happen .

28. Don't let it get to you

It's all part of Trump's plan. To sew confusion, anger, disbelief, fatigue, misery, corruption, fear to the greatest extent so that the public will accept his version of total control and domination and order when the election rolls around.

Obviously, don't buy in to the plan, which I doubt any of us here will. But the weakest minds in America? Those poor souls are vulnerable.

But little is going to change around here until we as a society do the two things that I doubt will ever happen. Until we the people get off our asses and understand that this is going to take both real sacrifice and real effort, nothing will ever change. As long as the people keep buying that line about not being able to do anything, we won't be doing anything except offering one staged show after another. That is what the entirety of our culture has turned into anyway... one big 'reality' show where we are presented with something we are told is reality but is just another stupid, scripted sitcom that was written behind closed doors by those who don't want anything to change.

42. That's the Whole Point.

Donald Trump's main strategy is to go on committing such extensive and horrendous crimes as long as he is president, so people will just feel overwhelmed and give up. There will never be final closure on Donald Trump's crimes because he just keeps committing them faster than they can be investigated. But at any rate, we have enough crimes committed, and enough solid evidence of them, to impeach the MF-ing bastard right now and be on with it - provided we can summon up the political will and resolve to do so.
