George Conway: There is no one to stop Trump now

When the subject of Attorney General William P. Barr comes up these days, it’s hard not to think of John S. McCain. Not the late senator, mind you, but the USS John S. McCain, the naval destroyer named after his father and grandfather.

It was an incident involving this ship that, as much as anything else, captures how the Trump administration — and its attorney general — operates. It explains Barr’s intervention into the criminal sentencing of Trump’s longtime friend and adviser, felon Roger Stone, and much, much more.

The McCain was docked at the Yokosuka Naval Base in Japan in May 2019, when the 7th Fleet issued a directive that had originated from conversations with the White House Military Office. The president was coming to Yokosuka on Memorial Day, and so, accordingly: “USS John McCain needs to be out of sight.” So sailors were ordered to hang a tarp over the vessel’s name, and they removed any coverings that bore the words “John S. McCain."

President Trump didn’t need to say a word. It just happened. He didn’t even know, he later said. But he was hardly displeased. “I was not a big fan of John McCain in any shape or form,” Trump said. “Now, somebody did it because they thought I didn’t like him, okay? And they were well-meaning.”

1. Conjob is a Conjob

they are on 2 sides of the street fighting for their own oligarchs; she's with Russian and he's with the Kochs et al/Federalist Society.

They're forgetting Nancy Pelosi and are trying to characterize what she brings to the table. But, she warned: Don't mess with me.

3. Trump just issues his imperial edicts in vague statements on Twitter.

He doesn't have to actually order anyone to do something.

If it every comes to it, he will be doing the same to the thugs in his followers. The ones willing to kill.

Disagreement is treason. Being a liberal/Democrat and speaking out is corruption.

The Swamp that Trump speaks of has always been the left. We have been reduced to that.

The bigotry of the far right is not centered on the minority communities anymore, it is now anyone who attacks white conservative privilege.
