Something odd I've noticed about Trump.

He always says things and acts like he has absolutely zero regard for the consequences. Its ZFG all the time.

He always acts like the end result of his presidency is already a given, and it's winning.

Every "scandel" that crops up he just wades into fists flying.

What if the Trump team already has enough evidence of Democrat wrongdoing or treason and they are just playing with the Dems?

What if they really are going to take down a bunch of leftist players right before the election?

Unlikely I suspect.

Sure would be something though if that's what happens.

Shaping up to be a crazy year regardless.

 


For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

In the moral, catatonic stupor America finds itself in today it is only disagreement we seek, and the more virulent that disagreement, the better.

Sadly I do not believe any of the top players will be held accountable for their crimes.
Maybe, just maybe, a small handful of lower level scumbags might (Strozk, Page, ???) stand trial but I'm not optimistic.

You could say the same about what the Democrats are saying.  They always have the next surefire accusation that is guaranteed to justify impeachment.  The media begins acting as if it is true when no evidence is yet given.  Then it turns out there is no evidence and nothing happened.  The media and Democrats continue to screech for a while before moving to another accusation.

The latest one is "The Texts!"

Reading just that article makes Trump, et al., look like mobsters.

Deputy, get us some rope.  We're going to have a trial.


Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

I know it's me being like "the other side", but I'm getting to the same point that got me to go from 3rd party to voting for Trump. In that, when the next dem is President, I'm going to start demanding impeachment on swearing-in day, and demand investigations every single day of his/her presidency. I want nothing but investigations going on every single day about getting them thrown out of office.

Tlaib says Democrats have discussed detaining White House officials who don't testify

How does this fit in that "balance" discussion from earlier?

What's the over/under on Trump sending the USMC from 8th and I, or FBI HRT over to get his employees if the Sergeant-at-Arms gets frisky?  Especially if he gets frisky before a court rules on the whole "There's no actual impeachment hearing going on, so where's the authority to subpoena?" argument.

I seriously doubt f Pelosi or any Democrat is that self aware or even cares.

Oh, she is aware, as are all politicians, but that doesn't matter because politics is always an "us vs them" fight.

Wouldn't that be using the military in a domestic situation?  Would we really want that?

I didn't say I wanted it, I pondered that he might do it.

HRT isn't military though.

Not really a smoking gun, but about on par (maybe worse) with what Trump actually did.

Yeah, but that was different because ORANGE MAN BAD!
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

Grandiose nut-job has been plumping for impeachment since the beginning.
