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

How to reap a whirlwind

1 Warm the Arctic so that

 

2. The temperature gradient lessens and

 

3. The wall enclosing supercold arctic air collapses and

 

4. The supercold air escapes south where it hits

.

5. Extra warm extra moist gulf stream air and

 

6. Voila, tournedos. tornadoes  (H/T Moat...)

 

(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.

Roger Stone's time in the barrel

Pro tip:  If someone knocks unexpectedly before dawn, just slip out the back, Jack (pace, Paul Simon...)

 

When you total up the years attached to the indictment pursuant to which Stone was taken in, he may get a chance to explore the tatooing talents of self-taught fellow inmates (to go along with the Nixon tatoo already on his back), it would appear that the dapper dark artist will be strongly motivated to give up his Godfather--or perhaps pull a "Frank Pentangeli" by way of "final exit"

18 U.S. Code § 4 - Misprision of felony

It is certainly elucidative of how low the bar can go, that the argument over whether or not Trump actually subborned the perjury of Michael Cohen before Congress is the field on which this particular battle is being fought.

 

Might we not, without exposing ourselves to the charge of excessively high expectations, reference the complaisant silence with which the false testimony was  greeted by the person who took an oath to see that the laws of the United States were faithfully executed?

"It takes two to Tango..."Your child kidnapped? $5,000,000 Demand? Her murder threatened?

Among the most infuriating frameworks enunciated by the wise and profound who claim time on TV is the trope that by refusing to give in to utter blackmail, Pelosi and the Dems are part of the problem.

 

Why not just split the difference at 2,500,000, opine such termpernent.ally diverse pundits as David Brooks and Chris Wallace.

 

The manifest stupidity and racist motivation of the demanded WALL!!! is besides the point, I guess.

Bearing the burden of incompetence

Cast your mind back to the furor that surrounded the aborted promotion of Doctor Ronny to VA administrator, a brouhaha which echoed recently as Jon Tester felt the (impotent) sting of Trump's continuing sulk.

 

Along with the vacancies that have made swiss cheese of the diplomatic corps, it emerges that the VA is replete with unfilled, yet essential, jobs.
