Lambs to the wolves

I really don't have words for what is playing out in the middle east. Actually, I do but I am really afraid to put them down on paper (virtual as it may be).

The Walls Are Closing In
Author: BobR    Date: 10/09/2019 13:11:50

There are a lot of possible analogies to describe tRump's legal situation. He could be described as a "wounded animal" lashing out, or a "cornered animal", threatened and ready to strike. I've probably used those myself. I think a potentially better analogy might be that he feels the walls closing in around him, as the people he can count on, the people he can use as shields, and his avenues of escape keep shrinking. His actions certainly reflect that.

The tRump tEam initially tried to dismiss the whistleblower complaint as "2nd hand information", despite the fact that it matches up exactly with the official transcript (and post-call actions) of tRump and his administration. Now that a 2nd "whistleblower" (witness?) with 1st-hand knowledge has come forward, the actions of the whistleblower seem even more justified:

Good Morning.

We'll dive right in today. I'm not sure of the source here (Washington Examiner? That's a Trump rag, isn't it?) but in any case, there's an interesting statistical quirk that's being reported.

Lighten up, Frances

This is where the GOP is going with this mess. October 3rd, the occupant of the White House stood on the south lawn and pulled what is basically a redux of his 'Russia if you're listening...' garbage during his campaign before he took the title of President.

Last night WaPo reported that the Occupant of the White house involved VP Pence in his efforts to get a foreign government to interfere with the 2020 election.

Wotta Week!
Author: BobR    Date: 2019-10-02 12:00:00

It's been one week since Nancy Pelosi announced that the U.S. House of Representatives was starting an impeachment investigation. Over the past 7 days, things have gone completely nuts.

  • Almost immediately, the Senate voted UNANOMOUSLY that the full whistle-blower complaint should be turned over to Congress.
  • Next came the news that Ghoulianni had pressured Ukraine numerous times to help with tRump's campaign.
  • tRump, Ghouliani, and a handful of Republican diehards (Graham, McCarthy) kept trying to red herring the story by deflecting towards Biden.
  • The transcript of the call was released. It confirmed that tRump committed a crime. They thought this would help their case?
  • More analysis showed that besides tRump, Pence, Barr, and Mulvaney were also implicated.
  • tRump, Ghouliani, and a handful of Republican die-hards (Graham, McCarthy) now switched to gaslighting, saying that tRump never pressured Ukraine
  • The White House accidentally sent it's talking points to the Dems, then tried to recall the email. Oops.
  • Acting DNI chief Joe McQuire threatened to resign if he couldn't speak freely before Congress.
  • The whistleblower complaint was declassified.
