What the hell…I want to hear him talk about how much he respects Roger Stone for not being a stoolie or a rat.

So long as Huckabooboo isn’t on camera I’m fine.

I said, when Kavanaugh first showed up, that even if it were acceptable back then, it’s not now, and while it might suck for those who it might affect, for the greater good, it’s better to hold our representatives to current standards.

If he demands that the House pass again the very same two-week CR that had been passed a dozen times but halted by Mitch, Pelosi should go for the jugular and send forward a year-long budget, like in the days of yore.

That tweet was a total non-sequitor. No, two young drunk guys getting frisky does not equal rape, but sexual assault is not excused by two young drunk guys getting frisky- and sexual assault is the main issue here, not the level of sobriety or friskiness. The clue’s in the word “assault”. Not all youthful drunken friskiness is necessarily consensual, and that needs to get sorted

These are also the same people who are getting HHS to allow adoption agencies to discriminate on basis of religion and sexual identity - giving Christian adoption agencies the right to discriminate against Jews or Muslims or LGBTQ from adopting through their agencies. Screw the best interests of the child, or making it easier to adopt. These people are out of their fucking minds to screw everyone else to make themselves “feel better”.

The fun thing is that Trump is fucked at this point no matter what. If he held out his poll numbers would tank even more because people rightly blame him for the shutdown and if he caves his poll numbers will tank because his base will see him as weak and feel betrayed.

Trump has already gotten beaten pretty good in every manner you choose. Mitch McConnell too.

I think there is no way Trump and Mitch pull another government shutdown. They are doing everything they can to get themselves out of the current jam and not smell as bad as they do. They aren’t going to roll in the shit again.

Of course Trump will talk tough and say he hasn’t given up on a wall. He’ll blame it on Chuck and “Nancy” and the new Radical Right™ that is resisting him and Mitch.

If The Wall were meant to be anything other than a Symbol of our National Resolve, then DT would have commissioned a planning report upon entering office that would already have had two years’ time to present a construction timetable, a budget, design proposals, environmental & property issues, etc., for Congress to consider and vote on.

Then Congress could be realistically asked to make funds available for such a project. But that was never his intention although he should at least in principle be aware of how such projects function in real life.

I will repeat this:

Trump is not a great negotiator.
He’s not even a negotiator.

He’s an extortionist and saboteur. If you don’t give him what he wants, he blows shit up (in this case, the government). The GOP is okay with this strategy so long as it doesn’t mean planes are falling out of the sky or stuck on the ground because there aren’t enough air traffic controllers to manage the number of flights scheduled.

Predictable:

The white nationalists aren’t happy that Trump caved. The spin now is from O’Reilly types, that Trump will win by losing. Or that this was some grand play to reduce the size of government by other means.

No.

This was sabotaging government in a fit of extortion. And the losers were Trump and everyone affected by the shutdown. Trump had power to reopen government while trying to negotiate. He’s back where he was more than a month ago, with an even weaker negotiating position. This is how not to negotiate.

It’s how one tries to extort an outcome - badly.

If The Wall were meant to be anything other than a Symbol of our National Resolve, then DT would have commissioned a planning report upon entering office that would already have had two years’ time to present a construction timetable, a budget, design proposals, environmental & property issues, etc., for Congress to consider and vote on.

Then Congress could be realistically asked to make funds available for such a project. But that was never his intention although he should at least in principle be aware of how such projects function in real life.

Well, since “Build The Wall” was never really meant to be anything more than a cheap campaign tagline to whip up xenophobic “outrage” among the Deplorables, no surprise.

But yeah, given Trump’s (however grossly overstated and misrepresented) reputation as a “property developer”, he should have known better.

Now? Now he is so weakened that nobody takes seriously his “threats” to force another shutdown or blow off his own dick by making a national emergency declaration.

Nancy’s pretty much right, when Feb 15th comes, Donny is gonna find some way to spin money for a fence as “wall funding” to avoid another shutdown. He’s going to find a way to claim “victory.”

I heard part of Trump’s speech on the way back from the dentist (teeth are now shiny and certified as sound) I’m not sure if it was just the speakers in the car, but it seemed to me his voice was pitched a bit higher than usual and a bit strained. It may just be from his excitement over duct taping women and driving around the desert, but he might realize, finally, how much trouble he is in.
Also, Freepers are continuing to turn on each other over whether or not Trump caved.

Stone and Sam Nunberg. Don’t forget Nunberg was also an early campaign consultant. It was not even going to be a thing about actually building a wall. It was meant to be Trump’s reminder to talk about immigration. He could remember “wall” apparently if he saw it on his notes and then go from there.

Trump went to it hard when first running his campaign and I bet he saw how well it was doing for him, it became more than a reminder, it became his main theme. And he built on his building the wall over and over and again and again. And now he is stuck. His own big mouth has got him into something that most likely wasn’t even planned.

That is Trump’s whole career. He opens up his big mouth about something he is going to do, commits to it, fucks it up and then has to do whatever to get his fat ass out of a jam.

Watching the spin from the Trump True Believers is something. He got absolutely nothing from this shit show. He’s already started backing off the extent of the wall. A second shut down would be absolutely catastrophic for Trump, particularly when he basically said he’d be responsible for the second shut down. Almost the entire GOP Senate delegation looks like schmucks, and I’m not sure their egos could handle that again.

The only modicum of pressure that is applied to Democrats is that they need to put forward some reasonable immigration/border policies and message the fuck out of them, so the media can’t re-frame everything as Democratic “obstructionism” over the next 3 weeks.

Even if it played out like in Mitchell’s letter to Penthouse Forum, how would that be “glorious”/a win for Trump? I know I speak the obvious, but you have to be pretty fucking thick to believe that Trump/the Admin actually think they could get away with building a wall via National Emergency. He’d have done it by now if there was a leg to stand on. Frankly, I wish a motherfucker would, because he’d have to open the gov’t for an extended period of time AND the national emergency would get shot down by the Courts in a heartbeat.

Remember reading an article a couple years ago about how the “progressive” image of Japan as a technological oasis is in total contrast with the reality of Japan as locked in the past. For example, companies are still relying largely on fax machines instead of emails or text messages because the elders don’t trust anything they can’t physically hold. Or how ATMs are still located in bank lobbies, so once the bank closes you’re SOL if you need to withdraw money in the middle of the night. Which you likely will because a lot of businesses over there are still “Cash Only.”

It would only result in more favorable margins/prices for US goods in Mexico. Meaning that Trump is still taxing US companies/citizens for his wall.

I’m probably preaching to the choir here with this, but it was something that was on my mind and I just started typing away.

———————————

After watching Trump nearly ruin 800,000 workers’ lives, along with their families, for basically nothing, I can’t help to think back to 2016 and the people I encountered who honestly thought (and probably still do) that Clinton was as bad as Trump.

For whatever faults Clinton and the Democratic Party have (and there’s plenty to grouse about), we absolutely would not have child prison camps and a President forcing people to work for free had she been elected.

These last two years are Exhibit A as to why I lose my shit over the cowardly “Both sides suck” view of politics so many Americans cling to. You get to vote when you become an adult, and sometimes adults have to do things they don’t like, because it’s the responsible thing to do.

Helping Trump get elected, either by directly voting for this clearly unqualified monster, or by staying home because Clinton wasn’t 138% perfect, is just something I can’t wrap my head around, and will never understand.

You had one job in 2016, America. And you fucked it up royally.

If anyone is interested, Ari Melber is going to have Sam Nunberg on tonight. Sam and Stone are close Trump associates. Sam has been critical of Stone on Ari’s show before. It will be interesting to hear what he has to add tonight. Of course there will be some bullshit involved, but often Nunberg also reveals some decent info that is not good for Trump.

Jerome Corsi will be on Monday. That should be rich. Corsi and Stone seem to have had some differences lately. I have a feeling Corsi will be driving a bus over Stone.

I don’t know if it’s still a thing, but I’d read in the past that when Microsoft would release a new product, it suck worse than an army of Hoovers in a black hole. Each iteration of that product, however, would actually get better as time progressed, to the point that that product would eventually dominate the market.

That’s what worries me about Trump and the GOP. We are not the only ones learning from the scum. McConnell and the rest of the klan have no issue with Trump’s viewpoints; their biggest problem with him is that he keeps saying the quiet part loud and the loud part quiet.

My biggest nightmare is the GOP will somehow get a competent Trump elected one day (Kasich is one example). That’ll they’ll learn from all of the mistakes W and Trump made, and will refine that process until they have a monster like Trump who knows how to do evil quietly and on the down low.

“…With an eerie specificity, Trump has characterized these acts as commonplace.

“I think his statements are completely divorced from reality,” said Ashley Huebner, associate director of legal services at the National Immigrant Justice Center. “That’s not a fact pattern that we see.”

Microsoft’s business strategy for years was using the end-users as the beta-testers, rolling out “Service Packs” back in the days before broadband internet made it possible for them to just deluge us with daily patches and hotfixes. Even to this day, they keep to the same strategy of rolling out a bug-ridden dog of an OS, then a year or two later rolling out a “new” OS that is basically the former with all the major patches and fixes rolled in.

See also: Win 95/98, Win ME/2K, Win Vista/7, Win 8/10. The only exception is XP, and that’s because it was basically a Microsoft making a dedicated Home OS rather than people relying upon the 2K which was originally intended for network users.

Rick Wilson’s latest on Roger Stone is pretty good: Cosplaying Supervillain Roger Stone Meets Robert Mueller’s Real-Life Feds

Another good barometer of how scared Trump’s media allies feel on any given day is how much they try to litigate the composition of Mueller’s staff or legal tactics as opposed to the underlying facts. The arrest at Stone’s love shack has become today’s hissy-fit shit-show screaming point by Trump and Stone fanboys like Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft, who ran a headline that captures the Trump-right drama-queen take on the arrest perfectly: “FBI Raid Would Make Gestapo Proud.” Did your eyes just roll? Because my eyes just rolled. The door-knock and the FBI’s handling of Stone was hardly a kinetic entry for a violent felon.

Stone acolyte Jacob Engels, Pizzagate hoaxer Jack Posobiec, greased-ham cosplayer Dan Bongino, Bongino’s handmaiden John Cardillo, and the usual cast of thousands raced to their fainting couches, declaring that the Deep State Gestapo was upon us. Trump Twitter ragebots always ready to scream “Lock her up” have suddenly discovered compassion and a love of due process and delicate treatment for those in the legal system. Several thousand kids in cages down on the border are muttering, “”¿Qué pinga?”

Mueller never sleeps, his targets aren’t getting exonerated no matter how many times the Trump media screams “But her emails!” or “No collusion!” This is one more set of indictments and moves in a mosaic of dread for Trump. It never gets better, Russia always draws closer, and the connections always paint of picture of more malfeasance and connection to Putin’s operation. The “process crimes” are just gravy. Delicious, delicious gravy.

yep. Stone was just 19 when he started as a dirty trickster for the Nixon campaign in 1972

Stone’s political career began in earnest on the 1972 Nixon campaign, with activities such as contributing money to a possible rival of Nixon in the name of the Young Socialist Alliance - then slipping the receipt to the Manchester Union-Leader. He also hired a spy in the Hubert Humphrey campaign who became Humphrey’s driver. According to Stone, during the day he was officially a scheduler in the Nixon campaign, but “By night, I’m trafficking in the black arts. Nixon’s people were obsessed with intelligence.”

If nothing else, it pre-supposes that Trump actually cares whether Dems cooperate and doesn’t simply prefer to torture for the sake of the pain (his supporters certainly don’t care).

It’s also true that there is nothing in Trump’s character that would stop him from enacting a final solution on some scapegoats. The only barriers to that are his own incompetence and some institutional obstacles which the GOP is steadily eroding.

This is legit scary, and has unfortunately scared some people silly.

Three years ago, we went out with my wife’s family for Easter dinner at a pretty popular North Shore steak house. As we were being seated, I heard someone yelling about something. We came around the corner and saw a man berating one of the wait staff. The man was standing with his back to us, but we walked past him on our way to our table, and I turned around to see what kind of punk-ass piece of crap would be chewing out a waiter in front of a packed restaurant.

It was Hannity.

We kept walking to our table, and the screaming continued. We sat down and got our menus, and it was still going. The poor kid looked like he wanted to die where he stood.

On Easter. Fuck Hannity. I wouldn’t piss on him if he were on fire. Makes me mad all over again just thinking about it.

Yes, but I understand. I’m hoping this time the controllers and TSA stage a sick out on day one, which will get the government reopened by that afternoon.

What should be happening right now is coordination between Pelosi’s office and selected federal agencies (TSA and the air traffic controllers would also be my picks) to ensure a full strike the instant a new GOP shutdown of the government starts.

Absolutely not…civil service needs to be absolutely apolitical. If what you said happened, the GOP would scream, “SEE! DEMOCRAT DEEP STATE!” and this would be fuel for the fire.

How it’s gone down already is probably the best you’ll get with work stoppages/slowdowns.

I wonder if it would help if Speaker Pelosi made a statement saying:

President Trump made a promise to his base supporters that he would build some kind of wall with Mexican money. That is not possible. There is still around 25% of the American public who believe a wall is necessary. It is not necessary. President Trump wants it to please 1/4 of Americans. So let me address the slim minority of Americans who favor using money to build a useless wall: We want border security and have a plan and a budget. But it will only include diversionary structures where deemed necessary through a comprehensive investigation based on data and input from our agents and others on the ground who deal with these matters on a day-to-day basis. No money will be release for such structures until such a review is complete. Meanwhile we agree to a robust budget allowance to advance border surveillance through drones and other technologies, and through enhanced techniques at ports of entry. We further insist on inclusion of all eligible for DACA under the terms of the Obama administrations guidelines and for a return to practices for those seeking asylum as sanctioned by international laws already agreed to by this country.

They can’t really do that because its illegal. We just need those workers to recognize in sufficient number that they have the power within themselves to end the shutdown by refusing to work without pay.

Removing the coordination with the Speaker’s office should suffice to deal with any real legal issues.

Laws presently on the books that make their strikes illegal are bullshit and can properly be challenged via civil disobedience in the form of strikes.

An interesting bit of information about Ivanka’s 5 new Chinese trademarks.

“Given Trump’s self-branding as a lifestyle guru, those trademarks covering wedding dresses, sunglasses, brokerage, charitable fundraising, and art valuation make sense,” Alaina Demopoulos reports before adding, “The fifth trademark covers childcare centers, which is somewhat eerie considering her father’s family separation policy.”

1) Everyone repeated your words: Mexico will pay. It will be 2000 miles long.
2) Everyone has what you said on tape. There’s no misunderstanding here.
3) Pelosi showed you who’s boss - you aren’t getting a wall.
4) McConnell covered for you for a month, because you just signed the same bill that Pelosi and Senate Democrats presented for a month. You don’t get points for signing the bill that Democrats presented. You are responsible for a month of economic damage you’ve inflicted on millions of people and on the nation. You and the GOP could have ended this shutdown at any time.

And then Germany could be the battleground of Europe again.

Maybe the Allies in WWI could have tried something enlightened. But nah. The Allies were still stuck in the 19th Century when it was perfectly allowable to wipe nations from existence.

Luckily the Allies in WWII, were smarter. Now Germany is a good friend and ally.

Those constituent states would be caught in the middle when the Soviet Union struck west. France and Britain would have advanced into those tiny kingdoms.

The battle lines would have gone back and forth grinding most of Germany into the dust ala The Thirty Years War.
