Gestapo! Don't answer the door!

At the behest of Mi Reina (AOC) and my vestigial conscience, I am joining a cadre of canvassers today to help inform any who may benefit therefrom, that they have rights in the face of the impending ICE raids.

 

Principally, of course, the paramount instruction DON'T ANSWER THE DOOR.

 

This paltry bit of symbolic resistance causes me to confront the wider and more difficult question that lurks.

Tsipras joins May in snap election loser hall of fame...

 

Heads of state who are bound by fixed terms must envy, from time to time, the parliamentary leaders who can snap their fingers (as it were) and muster up a surprise election.

 

Surely, one might think, this lightning bolt, when deployed, would signal that the perpetrator had caefully analyzed the electoral terrain.

 

Or not...

"They took over the airports", If you think your script says that, don't blurt it out!

As if to minimize his moronic display, explanations of Trump's July 4th encomium to the rag tag rebels of 1775 has been attributed to "trouble reading the teleprompter"...

His crimes cry out to Heaven...he is an abomination

 

What, after all, is the breaking point?

 

In a week that produces a crescendo of evil, juxtaposing unspeakable cruelty to children with outright rape, how can the House not proceed with impeachment, regardless of the putative complaisance of the Repugnant  majority in the Senate..

 

Failing to  impeach is  to turn a blind eye to the clear obligation that simple humanity imposes.

 

He cannot be allowed to proceed in this fashion untrammeled, at least by the clear accusation of his serial crimes, made concrete.

Blood on your hands? Call Jared!

Kushner Crisis Management, that is.

Remember the generalized outrage when it was bruited about that Jared Kushner (he of the purchased Ivy admittance) advised MBS Mohammed Bone Saw Bin Saud) that in the end, the furor over the Kashoggi atrocity would prove to be merely a speed bump?

Beyond outrage, there was derision--"Jared? PR advice? Y'gotta be kidding!"

Ha, ha, ha. The joke's on us

(Also, historic midwest flooding.)

 

As to the latter, we can only hope that the bloated corpse of the flooded out Trumpista serves as a flotation device saving innocent children.

35 people can destroy a nation (when 34 are Senators...)

 

"That would surely be an impeachable offense" is perhaps the most frequently repeated phrase from the mouths of guests on Chris Hayes' show.

 

Most recently, it came from Jamie Raskin, congressman and, more specifically, member of the Judiciary Committee, from which an Impeachment Resolution  would have to issue.

 

"That", in this particular iteration, was a hypothetical advertisement on E-Bay offering pardons for cash.

Osama's Revenge

Remember the scene in Carrie where the hand suddenly springs up from her grave, intimating horrors to come?

 

Well, (allowing for the dismemberment and burial at sea if true) the bony arm of Bin Laden once again grabs a nation by the throat and forces us to look into our (unattractive?) souls.
