As found in my inbox this morning, on topic:

Even after Mueller, the war continues in DC.

Don’t expect Trump to get any of his agenda items through Congress. Trump’s promises to replace the Affordable Care Act, invest in infrastructure, and cut middle class taxes have been essentially shelved.

The Democrats refuse to cooperate on anything in hopes of using that against him in 2020.

Essentially, what this means is that Government has simply ceased to exist and what’s left resembles a married couple deadlocked in a bitter divorce.

If you’ve been divorced, you know what I mean.

It ain’t pretty and it won’t end well.

We’re looking at the end-game for Western civilization. There is just no going back.

Government has become a battle to see which side can destroy civilization first.

Websters defined civilization is as: “refinement of thought, manners, or taste.”

How much of that do you see in Washington anymore?

Civilization is everyone coming together because the sum is greater than the individuals.

Today, it’s all about the individuals and there is no longer any cohesive sum that is greater.

While the Dems have officially killed the Trump agenda, what they fail to understand is that this is also the destruction of their agenda as well.

There will no longer be a government of ALL the people. It’s now a government of us vs. them.

It’s a classic case of how civilization dies.

It defeats the entire purpose of forming societies. Politics has become a confrontation to impose tyranny upon your opponent.

The very core of socialism is to deny individual freedom. The state comes first – the individual second. Everything the American Revolution stood for is now completely overturned.

I have offered the author a rental on The Ledge.

THIS, from A-Bob last night:

"“one that won't change many, if any, minds”

Yep. Will be watching from the Ledge as usual, expecting no big blowout."

And Jane, re Hannity last night... Biggest tease I have encountered since girls I dated in high school, and usually with the same result.

Tom R

Anything in the Mueller report related to an obstruction of justice charge that documents stuff we already know Trump publicly said or tweeted should be greeted with a “So what?” Who cares about how many times Trump sent out a “witch hunt” tweet? We already know what he said to Comey about LTG Flynn’s case.

Unless Trump did something we don’t know about yet that might constitute obstruction of justice I’m guessing the parts of the Mueller report on obstruction of justice will be a nothingburger.

Tom R

While the Dems have officially killed the Trump agenda...

Whoever sent that email to Buckeye is more of an Eeyore than OL.

Mueller decided he could not come to a conclusion on the question of obstruction because it was difficult to determine Trump’s intent and because some of his actions could be interpreted innocently,

Perhaps my confirmation bias is kicking in but that does not sound like the actions someone would take if they were a corrupt Deep State prosecutor trying to destroy Trump.

PS. One of the authors of that article (Barrett) was who Strzok/Page leaked to. He might be one of Nunes criminal referrals for receiving illegal leaks.

Tom R, yes. your confirmation bias at work. All Mueller has to do is set up the Congressional Uniparty to impeach (can't indict a sitting President)... and such muddled nonsense is perfect for that.

I'm not bracing. I'm with Beasts, but unfortunately have to go to work, so no Bloody Marys yet.

Extraneus

it was difficult to determine Trump’s intent and because some of his actions could be interpreted innocently,

Er, so therefore there's no evidence of obstruction and he should have concluded as much, especially as he concluded there was no evidence of an underlying crime that would motivate obstruction, and failed to note anything that was ever actually obstructed.

rse

This is very good.

Finally, a news conference of importance that hasn't been given the "Open Book Exam" treatment. Lets see how many can do the 5 W's in the DC Press. I expect total fail.

So, if this thing started in January of 2016, did they KNOW Trump would win and hid it from their donors, or did they assume he was a flash in the pan and went out to "destroy him as a lesson to all?"

No way, Henry.

From rse's 8:48

At this point, I had to ask how this article got past the Washington Post editors.

*snort*

Editors, what a quaint concept.

Jane

They didn't know MM. It was a Hillary plot to make sure he didn't win.

What screwed them up was when he won, because he got in a position to figure it out.

MissMarple2

Well, were there rumors about Russians around Jeb Bush? Carly Fiorina? Marco Rubio? Seems like they would have planted some stories there, too, along with the others.

Jane

In case you are bored:

Via Insty:

CULTURE OF CORRUPTION: Court Docs: Prosecutors Ask To Present Evidence That NXIVM Sex Cult Leaders Illegally Bundled Money For Hillary Clinton Campaign. “Prosecutors have asked to present evidence in the NXIVM sex cult racketeering trial showing that NXIVM leaders including Nancy Salzman and Clare Bronfman illegally bundled money for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign by compelling members to donate to Clinton and then reimbursing the members.”

Dinesh D’Souza got jail time for that, and he wasn’t using sex slaves.

I think someone already posted that on the last thread. My apologies.

Breaking: The Mueller Report CD-ROM will also contain 12 free hours of America Online

MissMarple2

This follows the pattern of the accusations and firings of the White House Travel Office back in the early days of the Clinton Administration.

Set yourself up as the virtuous one while falsely accusing innocent people. Get rid of them and put in your own people as a reward.

Only this is writ large. And were they going to accuse Pence as well?

This seems to not have been well thought out.

Jane

MM,

My opinion (just my opinion) is that they needed to take Trump down because he wasn't part of the deep state, indebted to no one, and they didn't want him to see what was going on. The others (politicians - all) they had enough on to keep them in line (on both sides)

Which is precisely why I want a new law that prohibits anyone in office (except a 1 term president) to be allowed to run for President.

Melinda

Philly Fed headline occludes the other metrics, which is why I always read the report and get the components, which are actually pretty fair, given the news of doom that these managers would be basing future decisions on.

Just my take.

Melinda

They should have bought an insurance policy.

MissMarple2

Jane,

I don't know how to solve it. They probably have dirt on most CEO's as well.

They did on Trump with that Access Hollywood tape. The only thing was that everybody in the country knew him, knew he was a bit of a ladies' man, and didn't care.

I do think that people going to JAIL would solve some of this.

Jack is Back!

I believe it started in April of 2011. That was the famous Zippy & Seth Meyers roasting of Trump, who was in attendance, over his birther comments. I know it was the catalyst for his decision to run in 2018.

Hell, it may have even been sooner, knowing how thin a skin Zippy owns. I can see him with the Ferret discussing how to get even with Trump. IRS? Illegal's working on his projects? Get Brennan and Comey on the Phone?

Find the date Trump made his birther comments and that is the most likely starting point.

Jack is Back!

In case you were wondering which stage of grief the D.C. press corps is in regarding Trump’s election/Mueller’s no collusion finding, they’re currently melting down because the attorney general they want to question is holding a press conference where they can ask him questions.
