This can’t last. I am unable to believe - even knowing that we as a country allowed numpty dumpty to become “president” - that we can allow much more of this sort of callous evil.
At some point even the current GOP has to realize that they are beginning to burn their future chances, because their aggressive and lawless pursuit of more power, for rump and themselves, means they will be inextricably associated with all of this callous evil. In the future, they may replace nazis as the default baddies.

Question for historians: we’re there any German cities that declared themselves safe cities for Jews or other people that were potential targets of the Nazis?

Not sure the concept as such existed there and then.

We stayed in a quaint little town in Franconia (now part of the State of Bavaria) that once prided itself on being one of the first German cities in the 30’s to be completely Jew-free

I am sure that Trump will be offering lucrative government programs to the first US cities to declare themselves “illegal alien-free” .

Trump is going to do lasting damage, if nothing else because it will be a while, if ever, before we can be where we might not elect someone else like him. But I feel that there are a whole lot of people who are fighting and are going to fight.

If I were a Democrat senator, I’d call Gorsuch’s bluff.

Do you disagree with Trump’s “demoralizing” attacks on the judiciary branch? Then withdraw your nomination. Otherwise, it’s just words.

re: #12 BlueSpotinAL

A gay Republican Milo fan buddy of mine just wrote thanking Donald for the big Intel investment project in AZ, so I checked this article in The Hill

“Intel said the investment would create 3,000 Intel jobs and 10,000 long-term jobs in Arizona.

Intel had previously coordinated the announcement of the project with former President Barack Obama in 2011 after he toured the company’s Hillsboro, Ore., facility.

Intel started construction of the Fab 42 plant in 2011, but shelved the project in 2014 amid slowing computer sales.

In his letter, Krzanich explained that Intel decided to revive the project as its growth increases. The company has reported relatively steady increases in income and asset growth over the past five years.”

So this was a project that was already planned and was going to be instituted regardless, but since Trump won the election, it is only fair game for him to take credit for it., just like it was only fair to give Obama all the credit for the 2008 housing market collapse…

When I say the Republicans are shit, as I often do, this is precisely why. The Republicans own Trump, lock, stock and barrel. It is mathematically impossible to remove him from office before Jan 2021 unless cabinet or Congressional Republicans want him out.

This is unlikely to happen because most of what Trump does, Republicans like on ideological grounds, and the rest they are prepared to put up with because it pisses off liberals.

re: #21 EPR-radar

Maybe I am being too optimistic, but I keep feeling that at some point the public will take a real look at the horror of how quickly and unashamedly the GOP has trashed our democracy and they will feel some of the visceral revulsion that so many of us are already feeling.
