Impeachment, even better than Stormy & Karen McDougal. Trump has LIVED for this day.

If you've had the great misfortune to see virtually any of his pre-2016 ghost-written literary works, you know that one thing matters above all else to Trump...revenge.

He doesn't even have to "WIN"...take Trump University and scores of other lawsuits that he fought, and lost.

What matters more to Trump than an afternoon in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills hotel with Stormy Daniels is causing as much damage as possible on his way down.

As much as he may crow and pound his chest about "winning," he seldom does.

Does he rack up millions in legal fees for his opponents, and screech and howl and claw his way through the media with false accusations and defamatory language?

Oh, you betcha. This is sexual healing for Trump.

If you've ever read Napoleon Hill's "Think And Grow Rich," he lays out the concept of channeling sexual energy into something other than sex...a BIG goal, lofty aspirations. Taking all of that built-in, pre-ordained energy and using it as an "alternative fuel."

DESPITE the "stain" it will leave on his "legacy," this is Trump's revenge fantasy at its highest level. He has the most powerful megaphone in the world, and a legion of Republican lemming sycophants who appear ready and willing to blast off the edge of the cliff with him.

I can't say how long McConnell will "stick with the program." The video of him that surfaced yesterday, moaning about how Democrats have wanted to impeach Trump since Day 1, doesn't signal "flipping" to me.

Meadows won't flip.

Jordan won't flip.

Nunes won't flip.

And what they are all too stupid to realize (or they simply don't care) is that much of the joy Trump will derive from this process is the knowledge that he brought a lot of people down with him.

Since it's out in the media, let's make it widely known!

3. Clearly, it's not...here's the Politico article, for anyone who missed it.

Trump lures GOP senators on impeachment with cold cash

The president is tapping his vast donor network to buck up lawmakers whose support he badly needs — but who also need him.



https://www.politico.com/news/2019/10/31/trump-impeachment-senators-donor-062084

Trump is tapping his vast fundraising network for a handful of loyal senators facing tough reelection bids in 2020. Each of them has signed onto a Republican-backed resolution condemning the inquiry as “unprecedented and undemocratic.”

Story Continued Below
Conspicuously absent from the group is Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a politically vulnerable Republican who’s refused to support the resolution and avoided taking a stance on impeachment. With his new push, Trump is exerting leverage over a group he badly needs in his corner with an impeachment trial likely coming soon to the Senate — but that also needs him.

Story Continued Below
Republican senators on the ballot next year are lagging in fundraising, stoking uncertainty about the GOP’s hold on the chamber, and could use the fundraising might of the president. Trump’s political operation has raked in over $300 million this year.

On Wednesday, the Trump reelection campaign sent a fundraising appeal to its massive email list urging donors to provide a contribution that would be divided between the president and Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, and North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis. Each of the senators are supporting the anti-impeachment resolution despite being endangered in 2020.

6. We're approaching Hitler in the Bunker time...

One of Hitler's final statement was that the German people did not deserve him and deserved to be destroyed for not supporting him adequately.

It's a universal narcissistic trait, I'm afraid, that everything much be destroyed along with him.
