de·plor·a·ble adjective: deserving strong condemnation.“The prisoners were held in deplorable conditions”. Synonyms: disgraceful, shameful, dishonorable, unworthy, inexcusable, unpardonable, unforgivable, lamentable, regrettable, unfortunate, wretched, atrocious, awful, terrible, dreadful, diabolical.
Let’s face it. By any standard, we have a truly deplorable person in the highest office in the land. He is all of the above on every level. Trump is also a criminal money launderer, tax evader, draft-dodger, misogynist, rapist, narcissist, and a compulsive liar.
He agreed to play ball with Putin to win our election and now they are getting ready for the next steps. Remember this. Putin was not born rich like Trump. Putin stole 100% of his 150 billion dollars in Russian assets. And step-by-step he is teaching Trump how to do the same here. Not that Trump did not know how to cheat and steal. He’s done that all his life. But Putin knew how to make the theft permanent, by eliminating justice. That’s what Trump needs.
Trump is trying to legally become the first dictator of the USA. And if he gets away with it, the American democracy as we know it may be ruined for the foreseeable future.
If you read between the lines, the way you always should with politicians, Putin’s statement seems to be about Comey’s firing but the undercurrent is about some sort of struggle Trump is having with his own government. Putin is saying, in effect, that Trump would prefer not to have an adversarial US government to deal with – (the way Putin has it in Russia as an elected dictator), but that he is not breaking any US laws. He is in accordance. So it’s all OK. They are both trying to use our own laws, to make Trump/Putin the czars of planet earth.
And Trump realizes he has no real friends among the clear-headed rulers on the planet. So he cozies up to dictators to learn how they do it. How they get power. How they retain power. That’s what these international summits are all about anyway.
The SCOTUS pick is lining up to be the straw that can break a 250 year-old democracy’s back here in the USA. If Trump gets his pick, they can allow him to pardon himself, fix the 2018 elections the way Putin does in Russia, and then its all over.
There has been talk of Murkowski and Collins flipping and refusing to confirm Trump’s pick for fear of Rowe vs Wade being scuttled. There is talk that Flake, Corker and Paul may have develop a conscious and obstruct the coupe d’etat that Trump needs to skirt justice and avoid paying for the laws he broke to acquire his wealth and presidency.
First things first. NO DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE SHOULD GET THE BACKING OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY in 2018 IF THEY WILL VOTE FOR TRUMP’S SCOTUS. This cannot be an option! We must all stand together – all 49 of us. And we must publicly commit to that ASAP. Once we have that commitment, we can figure out how to get a few decent GOP senators to hold this up.
But without that commitment, we are fighting an uphill battle on too many fronts. It does not bode well – unless we get the full support of 49 democratic senators – and NOW – not later. No waiting to see who he picks. They will all be “sold out” regardless of what they say or don’t say. They have all been schooled not to talk about Rowe v. Wade already. They know women hold the supreme voting power here in the USA this cycle. If women largely unify, nothing can break their solidarity. Not even a Russian bot repeat attack.
I own RussianTrollSites.com and will donate that site to anyone or group who will develop a script that lists all the continuing Russian efforts to undermine free and fair elections here in the USA, like they did in 2016.
After that united commitment, we figure out how to pressure the right GOP senators through the constituents in their states, and get them to do the right thing for the USA.
To Mueller I say this. Strategically, this is like a baseball game in many ways. If Trump gets to pick his SCOTUS it’s like having a top tier relief pitcher on your team in the extra innings. Our momentum will get shut down.
So Mueller: If you are betting that doing a perfect job over the next few years is better than doing a pretty decent job NOW – I would re-think that strategy. Once Trump gets to SCOTUS, all your work can potentially go down the drain. You can be sure that will be Trump’s best hope and he will work to that end tirelessly.
Mueller: It is better to do some scoring now, in the late middle innings. Make Trump look guilty NOW, in front of the USA and his own base. Get it done before he even announces a pick. If Trump can be made to look to the pubic like the criminal he really is – then at least a few senators are not going to want to do down in history as the ones who let a criminal POTUS buy a SCOTUS and effectively end the rule of law and the 250 year-old American democracy.
And a few is all we need if we insist that all Dems stand together or lose their party standing and support. Trump needs to win at any cost to keep his stolen wealth. It’s also what Putin wants to happen and he will work to make that happen gladly. They are both greed monsters. And there are many others GOP lieutenants afflicted with the same greed disease – and they would love to see America be over if they can make a buck planning in it’s demise.
It’s time to be bold. Release the hounds Robert Mueller. We will do our part with our Dem senators.
There is one more important thing to say.
This post below discusses Trump’s hollow promise of a better economy. For those who think they are better off economically with Trump, remember what happened with Bush, our last GOP president.
