“Donald Trump’s omnipresent spokes-cobra … “

That’s a pretty good start.

SNL portrays her as having a conscience and being remorseful for inflicting Trump on America. I don’t see that at all.

She’s Goebbels with a bad dye-job. That’s all.

President-elect Trump will name the owner of NFL’s NY Jets, Woody Johnson, to be ambassador to the United Kingdom, official says.

As a long-suffering Jets fan, this fills me with confidence.

re: #5 Unshaken Defiance

I have a plan for the Inauguration….to ignore it. I am working, then getting a manicure and pedicure and other girlish grooming rituals. Potentially some mild shopping. The grown up version of “I’m washing my hair that night.”

The husband teaches AP Poly Sci and Economics and he’s kinda obligated to watch it. Which means being out of the house is a good idea because all I will hear is, “That’s a lie! That’s not the right numbers! What the fuck are you talking about?!?!” The man has so much factual information in his head that he yells numbers and figures at the TV real-time.

I am, genuinely, not interested in the ritual. I’m marching Saturday, and I’ll start paying attention to Trump when he finally does something concrete. Until then, I have more important things to do. Like getting my eyebrows waxed.

re: #3 lawhawk

Something you mentioned a few days ago has been kicking around in my head… you said you wouldn’t be surprised if 2016 turned into The Year of the Four Presidents. I’ve been trying to game this out, and I’m not sure how I see it happening.

Let’s say real evidence comes out about Trump and Pence actively coordinating with the Russians. Wouldn’t both be impeached at the same time? Or do you see a situation where Trump gets impeached/convicted and on his way out decides to implicate the new President Pence; which leads to a second round of impeachment/resignation nightmares.

And who becomes the fourth president? Because I could see the wingnuttiest portion of the GOP caucus turning on Ryan in the House if he lets articles of impeachment go forward and him being forced out. So, line of succession wise, does that mean we get left with a President Orin Hatch (as president pro tem of the Senate)? Or is it possible that Pence nominates a VP that gets confirmed before he’s impeached?

I would not be surprised if Trump ends up getting impeached or faces a 25th Amendment challenge (which I can’t imagine he’d take well). But trying to game out the obvious constitutional crisis is kind of a nightmare.

Though it is giving me ideas for a novel/film…

Obama -> Trump -> Pence -> Ryan is the most logical route, but it could also devolve into

Obama -> Trump (Pence gone at same time) -> Ryan -> President pro tem in Senate.

On and on it goes, and depending on which GOPers get sucked up in this mess we’ll see someone down the line getting cast into a position they are not likely prepared to be in (mostly because they’re unprepared/unqualified - from Sec. State on down to AG - see the order of succession).

re: #46 Charles Johnson

Every one of these Trump nominees has serious issues with corruption that would have disqualified anyone else in previous administrations.

Trump skirted, violated or outright trampled every rule and convention of modern politics.

On one hand, it is an admirable feat: he accurately gauged that people are fed up with politicians and politics as usual and knew he could act with impunity as long as he presented himself as the anti-establishment anti-politician.

One the other hand, it is a recipe for disaster and catastrophic collapse.

Texas Republicans at it again

One of the documents Biedermann seeks support for is a “Declaration of Muslim Reform Movement” that repudiates “institutionalized Sharia” and declares support for secular governance, democracy and liberty. The second is a “Muslim Pledge for Religious Freedom and Safety from Harm for Former Muslims,” which renounces persecution of so-called apostates who leave Islam. The third is federal legislation that designates the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization.

Since when do Texas Republicans give a shit about secular governance when they’re shoving Creationist bullshit down our throats?

Despite 8 years of trying to claim Obama was corrupt and that there was all kinds of criminality, the GOP came up with nothing - nothing on Benghazi, nothing on emails. Nothing.

Trump’s already coming in with a mess of lawsuits and investigations, and none of it is going to go away. His cabinet picks aren’t much better, and the odds of corruption are … well… no odds are given because it’s stuck at 100%.

Bruce Springsteen has this little guitar player in his band named Nils. Nils Lofgren. Him and his brother had a band called Grin back in the 70’s they were a vastly underrated group. Nils also appeared on a Crazy Horse album backing Dirty Dirty. He used to have a trampoline at a 45 degree angle between the amps and he would run off and fly back on stage doing a backflip as he played. Seen them 3 times and they delivered each time.

Glen Roven to Premiere Star-Studded Operatic Work on Inauguration Day

Inauguration day protests have a long history in our country, from the 1913 Women’s Suffrage Parade on the eve of President Wilson’s inauguration, to the Women’s March on Washington scheduled for the day after Donald Trump takes office. Popular and respected musical guests are also spotted in the political landscape at this time, either as voices of celebration or dissent.

On Friday, Emmy Award-winning composer Glen Roven will continue both unofficial traditions with his premiere of “The Hillary Speeches,” a vocal setting of Clinton’s 2007 campaign announcement and her 2016 concession. The performance was recorded as a film, with individual singers taped separately and edited together. It will be screened at the National Sawdust in Brooklyn at noon — which is the same time Trump will be sworn in as president.

They’re streaming it online.

I took the bait and responded to this comment on the DallasNews page:

Joyce_Andrews 11 minutes ago
I guess I haven’t been hearing enough Muslim leaders loud and clear when they condemn the acts of jihadists. I know they themselves are peaceful. But they also tend to be quiet about it. Most won’t stand up and make it loud and clear for all to hear. that this is not the way to solve problems. Get themselves some P.R. people, if they have to! What could possibly be wrong with supporting the 3 documents? Either you do or you don’t. If you can’t support the documents without offending your peers, then maybe you really are in a country whose laws are in conflict with your personal ones. I do not hate muslims. I have them as loving kind friends. I just am surprised that they won’t take a stand PUBLICLY about what some of their supposed -Muslim brothers do. Terrorism should be rejected loud and clear with them taking and making public announcements and action to keep their own families, neighbors and mosques safe and peaceful and on track. Better now than when Trump gets going and really aggravates more people with his lack of knowledge and understanding.

My response:

discotheque 7 minutes ago
@Joyce_Andrews Did you ever denounce Norwegian anti-Muslim fascist Anders Breivik when he killed kids at a youth camp in the name of European Christendom? The 3 Trump supporting “Crusaders” who plotted to bomb apartment complexes where immigrants lived in Kansas? The massive hate-crime spree that erupted after Trump’s election win?

Do you denounce Dominionism? Do you denounce efforts to outlaw abortion as your fellow Texas Republican men have continued to advocate? Do you denounce Donald Trump and his boasts of sexual assault? Do you also denounce attacks against Planned Parenthood and shoving Creationism down our throats?

Take your own advice before lecturing others, old white lady.

That means he has to be seen as the tough guy who blew up ISIS and tough guys use the biggest bombs around. We know he is fascinated with using nuclear weapons. Blowing shit up in Syria and west Iraq with tactical nukes will provide his tough guy bonafides to his 45 year old rust belt worshippers, horrify the “PC liberals” (and all the rest of the world) while also proving he is an “agent of disruption”.

If he uses them (and honestly it’s still a big if) it won’t be in Syria, it’ll be against hardened underground enrichment facilities in Iran after attempts to tear up and renegotiate the nuclear treaty fail. I’ve been saying for awhile that one of the easiest ways for him to engineer a needed distraction by way of crisis and reward Putin at the same time is to start a shooting war that closes off the Straight of Hormuz. That would spike oil prices enormously overnight, which is the one thing Putin wants more than a lifting of the US sanctions against Russia.

Fake News is The Onion

Agitprop (aka propaganda) is what Fox, RT, and right wing blog/media outlets spew on a daily basis.

That right wing outlets are busy trying to claim that legitimate news sources are fake news is itself agitprop. Trying to counter this is news, and the same right wing outlets claim fact-checking is also fake.

It’s lies all the way down for these fuckers, and who benefits? Putin. Billionaires. And people who are insulated from the consequences of losing the safety net and environmental protections and safety that federal programs provide.

In other words, very few people are going to benefit, and a whole mess of people are going to needlessly suffer. #GOPDontCare

lawhawk  Jan 19, 2017 • 1:37:52pm

The GOP is going to start pushing tax cuts and major policy changes at the federal level. The result will be a slowdown in federal revenues, because that’s what happens when there are tax cuts (you lose revenue).

In many cases, those federal changes are automatically picked up by states that follow the federal changes. Those states will also see a loss in revenue without any changes of their own. That means they’ll have to affirmatively decouple from the federal changes, or set new conformity dates to avoid the revenue hit (and they know it will be coming; some states have fixed conformity dates to avoid getting blindsided by federal changes the state legislatures don’t want to adopt).

This applies to not only the estate tax area, but to corporate and individual taxes. After all, pretty much every state’s income tax returns start with federal taxable income, and if you’ve computed a lower amount as a result of federal law changes, that flows to the state tax return.

So, what you’ll end up seeing is states pushing back against moving quickly to amend the tax code, because the consequences could be budget busters for states.

The world is a stratified place. Important people get into exclusive places. Everyone else has to pay shit loads of money, or watch longingly through the fence. But there’s a loophole into getting into places for free, if you’re so inclined. You just need to pretend to be an important person. And people who wear hi-vis are important in the sense that they fix things no one else cares about. If you see someone in hi-vis stepping through a barricade, or marching past a bouncer, you naturally assume they’re headed to fix something. This makes a hi-vis vest the keys to life.

OK, back from shoveling the drive and cooling down.

This is not NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Get it? Get it now.

There are procedures in place to PREVENT just such an incident from happening.

The POTUS can not upon a whim just decide to release nuclear weapons. There are checks and balance in place to prevent this.

One of the first one is the JCS. If they don’t sign off on a release order it’s not happening.

The first time (and last) time tRump orders such a strike without JCS approval he will be shut down and he will be removed.

-curfew is at 10 PM local and the satellites are watching.

-If we pull together and support our volunteers we can make this a rousing success, so let’s get going!

Call me on my Obamaphone when it’s time. I’m wrapping up the last details of Jade Helm and will surely forget.

re: #178 goddamnedfrank

If he uses them (and honestly it’s still a big if) it won’t be in Syria, it’ll be against hardened underground enrichment facilities in Iran after attempts to tear up and renegotiate the nuclear treaty fail. I’ve been saying for awhile that one of the easiest ways for him to engineer a needed distraction by way of crisis and reward Putin at the same time is to start a shooting war that closes off the Straight of Hormuz. That would spike oil prices enormously overnight, which is the one thing Putin wants more than a lifting of the US sanctions against Russia.

Yeah, I kinda see that coming as well. Putin needs oil prices to be high, and the easiest way to do that is to go crazy in the Middle East, and then blame all the day-um Ay-rabs for the high gas prices.

They say that in Russia, the war is between the TV and the refrigerator. Propaganda vs. hunger. Here in the U.S., it’ll be between talk radio & the gas tank.

Wonder which one will win?

You’ll learn who to block. Make sure you call them cowards on the way out.

They’re already whining about the women they mass-assault using a “Gamergate Bot” to block them so they can’t abuse them more.

“Hey! Come back here and let me threaten to rape you with a knife more! Where’s your sense of humor?”

I fully expect Trump will use tactical nuclear weapons in Syria within 3 months of taking office.

The rest of the world will never, ever forgive us.

I wonder what happens when he orders the launch and the officers refuse to comply with what they consider an illegal order?

What indeed.

en.wikipedia.org

During the first months of the war, scores of commanders, most notably General Dmitry Pavlov, were made scapegoats for failures. Pavlov was arrested and executed after his forces were heavily defeated in the early days of the campaign. Only two of the accused were spared: People’s Commissar of Armaments Boris Vannikov (released in July) and Deputy People’s Commissar of Defense General Kirill Meretskov (released in September). The latter had admitted guilt, under torture.

About 300 commanders, including Lieutenant General Nikolay Klich, Lieutenant General Robert Klyavinsh, and Major General Sergey Chernykh, were executed on October 16, 1941, during the Battle of Moscow. Others were sent to Kuybyshev, provisional capital of the Soviet Union, on October 17. On October 28 twenty were summarily shot near Kuybyshev on Lavrentiy Beria’s personal order.

In November Beria successfully lobbied Stalin to simplify the procedure for carrying out death sentences issued by local military courts so that they would no longer require approval of the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court and Politburo for the first time since the end of the Great Purge. The right to issue extrajudicial death sentences was granted to the Special Council of the NKVD. With the approval of Stalin, 46 persons … were sentenced to death by the Special Council. They were executed on the Day of the Red Army, February 23, 1942.

Trump has enough low cunning to avoid that scenario. Trump will not try to play with the nukes unless he has made sure the relevant chain of command is filled with his creatures.

I’d put the over under of summary executions ordered before there was a military coup at 0.5

The fact that we even have to contemplate these kinds of things is… less than good.
