I've been expecting a major catastrophe for awhile but yes, this is remarkably bad.

We have been teetering of the verge of major catastrophe for awhile now though if you think about it.

1. Trump screwed up North Korea - in a slightly different scenario that goes very badly wrong and well...

2. Trump has recklessly vacated the Iran nuclear deal and further stroked the fires by assassinating a Senior official. Yes, he was a vile person, nevertheless, the Administration had clearly not calculated the Iranian reaction and almost blundered into a major war.

3. Trump has continued to encourage ultra-right violent demonstrators.

4. Trump has proven he has no understanding of the gun crises in our country.

We have been teetering for sometime. It is not surprising that Trump's luck (and unfortunately, ours) has finally run out.

Veteran NASA astronauts set out today (May 27) to make history with SpaceX's Demo-2 mission and everyone from celebrities to astronauts is celebrating around the world.

Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley have trained tirelessly to launch today aboard SpaceX's Crew Dragon from NASA's Kennedy Space Center all the way to the International Space Station with Demo-2. The pair, who are experienced test pilots as well as veteran astronauts, have worked hard to get to this moment where they will be the first humans to fly this capsule to orbit.

Curiously, I think this is there re-election strategic lever

Or they think it will be. I think their perverted reasoning is to make the charges against the Obama administration appear to be the rot and then to say that Biden is rotten by connection.

They are smart in one way. Now, it will be reported as both candidates have serious scandals and investigations, etc. And they will say (we know this is completely false) that Trump has been completely exonerated and that is because Obama is guilty.

It is complete deceit. But it has worked well for them in the past. They shore up the base and bring in just enough "undecideds" to move the scales close enough so that they can steal the rest.

Unfortunately, it could work for them. I don't think it will be it could ... there is a long time between now and November 3, 2020. Time for them to spin their insane lies.
