A Hazy Shade Of Winter

January 23, 2024

Does the Democratic Leadership privately wish for Trump to be the opponent in November?

Is there a secret memo somewhere in the DLC HQ's that wants Trump as the Republican candidate?

The reason being that they believe Trump will not only give them the White House, but also control of the House of Representatives and a fair majority in the US Senate?

Whether or not that is the case, many Democrats believe that is exactly what will happen in the next election. The Republicans will not be able to help Trump carry all the baggage he is now gathering. Guilty of rape and 91 other charges waiting to be addressed, do they actually believe he will be able to delay all of them until after the next election? Many Democrats would not be unhappy with a delay.

Because Trump will have an impact on every race in the country down the ballot. It could be a landslide election for the Democrats.

I have not seen such a memo, but I would not be surprised.

If elected, will Trump continue to do business with foreign countries?

People should expect a "Yes" or "No" answer.

If he cannot guarantee that, then he should know ahead of time that he will be impeached for constitutional reasons, not following the emoluments clause of the US Constitution, if Democrats are in charge of the House of Representatives.

That should not be permitted to continue as he did the last time he was in the White House.

He needs to know that he will be watched very closely and he will not be able to continue his criminal ways.

It is possible that he will be the next president and he should be aware his every move will be watched very closely.

Republicans can choose to protect him if they wish.

Looking for rational answers to irrational actions?

Is it possible to penetrate such devoted irrationality? Is it a waste of time to even try?

Is it easier to believe a lie than a factual truth? Especially when it fits your irrational world so much more comfortably?

The cult is not a group of rational thinkers.

It is an irrational act, within itself, to try to communicate with such irrational thinkers.

Netanyahu is a dictator "wannabe".

He has aligned himself with oligarchs and autocrats. His closest allies were Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, and the Saudi monarchy.

In my opinion, he is as crooked as a dog's hind leg.

He is continuing the violence in Gaza to keep himself in power, by telling the Israeli people that they must wipe out the entire population in Gaza, or they will never be safe. There is no room for compromise of any sort. The deaths of children and innocents is just collateral damage.

Israel must destroy the Palestinian people in order to destroy Hamas.

He is using violence to control the Israeli people, in my opinion.

Republicans want to forget that January 6th ever happened.

They wish to revise history for political reasons. They want people to believe a lie.

The truth is not important to them.

They say they are not a cult. They dress in funny uniforms and wave huge flags with the name of their Leader on them. They refuse to believe anything negative about him. They are passionate in their defense.

They create excuses out of thin air about what happened on January 6th. They want people to believe their Leader had nothing to do with it. It was all a conspiracy by the FBI, the CIA, and the Deep State. They are deeply delusional.

They want to revise history by having rational and sane Americans forget about January 6th.

The only way they can recover from their mass psychosis is if everyone agrees to move on and forget the crimes that were committed on that day.

The Trump Brand: How much is it worth?

He has put the Trump Brand on several businesses that failed, including Trump University, Trump Airlines, Trump Network, Trump Magazine, Trump Vodka, Trump Steaks, and the New Jersey Generals, just to name a few. Beware when he talks about how much value the Trump Brand adds to his businesses.

He also filed bankruptcy for the Trump Casinos and Resorts, the Trump Plaza Hotel, and the huge casino, the Trump Taj Mahal. Many questioned how he could go bankrupt with a casino, where the house always wins?

One of his recent arguments in court was that he undervalued the Trump brand on his properties in New York and his Mar-a-Lago home and resort. Judging from his past failures, that may be a difficult argument for him to make with a straight face.

The Second Coming

January 19, 2024


The last play of a desperate man. In a chess game, one move from checkmate.

The last words in an ALL-CAPITAL post by the Defendant, Donald Trump.

He was explaining why it was necessary for a president, any president, to have absolute immunity from ever being prosecuted for any crimes that might happen if he "crosses the line".

Perhaps it was a confession from someone who knows he has "crossed the line" and is looking for some sort of mercy from the Courts?

Perhaps he has inside information and knows that the Court is going to make a ruling, perhaps as early as today? With his omnipotent power, he was able to get the Republicans in the US Senate and the US House to file an amicus brief in support of his theory of "absolute immunity".

Surely, the Supreme Court would never ignore such important and powerful witnesses?

Just days after his lawyers argued in front of the Appeals Court that he could order Seal Team 6 to assassinate his political rivals and the immunity would still apply, he said it would apply to all presidents, not just him.

Because Republicans would never believe that a Democratic President would commit the crimes that he committed? That Joe Biden, with full immunity, would never order Seal Team 6 to assassinate Donald Trump tomorrow and would have full immunity from prosecution?

How blind are Republicans in the House and Senate? If the people only knew the truth about them, would they still send them back to Washington to represent them in the US Congress?

"God Bless The Supreme Court"? Those are the words of someone that wants the Supreme Court to do what he wants, or someone who believes they will do what he wants.

In my opinion, the most important deadline this year is July 15th.

That is when the GOP Convention begins and when they will nominate their candidate to run against Joe Biden. If Trump is not available, they will nominate someone else.

We have seen several trial deadlines for Trump, and how he is attempting to delay all of them.

If he fails, the GOP Convention will not hold the podium for him. They will continue without him, in my opinion.

In my opinion, they will not nominate a convicted felon as their candidate.

It will be fun to watch them squirm when that time arrives.
