About Me

Nixon was a fucking crook. As a teenager I marched on the UN in 1982 with a million other people demanding we get rid of the threat of nuclear weapons hanging over our heads. Since then I've worked to get Democrats elected like John Aristotle Phillips, known as the A-Bomb Kid when he ran for Congress against Stuart McKinney in CT in the 80's (we lost twice) through the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. I want to legalize cannabis, reform our prison for profit system, cut our military budget, get out of Afghanistan and push solar energy panels into every building in the USA.

If you don't understand that antisemitism is behind the current acceptance of violence against

reporters by the right wing then you don't understand America.

This trip is going to be hell on Donald Trump bankbook

He's going to be traveling for nine days and not able to spend any government money at any of his trump properties.
No self-dealing? That's not why he leaves the White House.

Asked about Comey, Trump's answer veers into how bad Obamacare is.

This guy is a one trick pony.

Any day now I expect Trump to just pardon himself, along with half of his Cabinet and staff, and

just move on.
What the hell would anyone do then?
It's what authoritarians do.

Sure, we're talking about "impeachment" and "resignation" but Trump is probably talking about

"consolidating power" and "martial law."

We really don't know what he would do with his back against the wall.
You don't resign from a coup.
You just admit it's a coup and move on with your authoritarian state.
All approved by the GOP Congress that won't even let the Democrats in the room to negotiate the new health care law in the Senate.
I feel like we've brought a knife to a machine gun fight with the GOP.

We believe in the law.
That's why we are talking about impeachment and the Articles of the Constitution.
They don't believe in the law, except to mangle it for their agenda.
State's rights? Yes for abortion, but fuck that idea/concept for legal cannabis.

Acceptance (and/or collusion) with a Russian tainted Presidential election working with a gerrymandered Congress, and a stacked Supreme Court with a stolen Justice's seat sitting on the bench in the swing vote.
That's who we are fighting.
You can call it what you want but it sure feels like a coup to me.

Trump calls meetings "successful" all the time. I call a good meeting "productive" "enlightening"

"it went well" or other terms but I don't think I've ever called a meeting "Successful"

If his meetings were successful then there should be quantifiable things to say about it that made it so. negotiations won, etc. instead of just saying successful.

He just needs to say the word over and over again to convince himself, and the rest of us, that he is "successful."

Is it me or does Trump always look happiest when he's sitting next to a dictator?

All smiles and love next to turkey's ruthless dictator.
Frowning and scowling next to legally elected leaders like Merkel or Trudeau

If Trump resigns, the GOP and Pence will act worse, not better.

I've seen some posts saying the GOP would be chastised for what they have done, and turn into lame ducks.
Nope.
After Watergate the GOP went nuts.
A kind of Bat shit crazy that keeps growing to this day.

They blamed the media.
They blamed the Democrats for a witch hunt.
They did everything except take responsibility for what Nixon and the rest actually did.

Then the GOP dove deep into the Moral Majority and decided that labeling ALL government as bad would be the way to cover up the fact that the Republicans were the ones who created the biggest Presidential scandal in our history.

Do not look for accountability or remorse for their mistakes after this is all over.
That's not hope the GOP works.

They will be vindictive instead.
They will gut Medicare and Social Security.
They will drop all taxes on the 1%.
Anything they can do to fuck average Americans will be done, faster and meaner than right now.

When you take McMaster out of his fancy uniform and put him in a ill-fitting suit he reminds me of

Mafia Don John Gotti's lawyer back in the day.

McMaster loses a lot of his credibility and authority without the uniform.
Just another talking head suit now.

"NBC clearly views Kelly as a prominent new personality for its news division, as illustrated by her

joining some of their most prominent anchors on the upfronts stage — and, it must be said, not a single representative from MSNBC."

“There’s never been a more exciting time to be a journalist,” NBC News anchor Lester Holt declared to kick off the NBC News portion of the presentation, to some dry laughs. The ensuing sizzle reel — dramatically set to Sia’s “Breathe Me” — contained clips from throughout NBC’s 2016 election coverage, from Rachel Maddow making grim declarations on MSNBC to the Today show determinedly grinning and bearing the chaos. Holt was then joined onstage by Today hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, who in turn introduced Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd, before finally Fox News expat Megyn Kelly strode onstage.
“I'm here,” she beamed to scattered applause. “I'm psyched."

Just so you know where MSNBC and their audience rates with NBC overall.
At least Will & Grace is back....
