Elvis is alive!

And he's been living Upstate on a farm with my old Yellow Labrador.

Yup. Again, there needs to be more follow-up on this and pressing McCarthy and others on this

from journalists.

Remind Americans that Republican Party leaders themselves believe that the President - THEIR (Republican) President - and at least one of their colleagues in Congress are being paid by Putin.

But then again...”Witch Hunt, Hoax, No Collusion”

"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump."

- Current House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy, in conversation with House Republican colleagues (including then-Speaker Paul Ryan).

They know.

"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump."

- Kevin McCarthy, current House Republican leader.

Remember, William Barr subscribes to the same theory of extreme presidential power as Dick Cheney.

And he's using it on behalf of Trump, just as Cheney used it on behalf of Bush 43 and Barr himself previously used it on behalf of Bush 41.

"The Donald" has found his Dick Cheney....or as he would say, his Roy Cohn. And we should all be very afraid of that.


If absolute power corrupts absolutely, then what happens when you put absolute power in the hands of the absolutely corrupt?

Good and bad people is not the point. The point is we shouldn't have to be reliant on their charity.

And that charity can and often does come with strings attached.

And then there are those who aren't charitable, or are actively working against the basic interests of all of us. That includes the Kochs and Adelson, and many others.

The problem is that billionaires' wealth gives them immense power at the expense of others' power.

I don't know about you, but I don't want our country and our planet to be dependent on the good intentions of certain billionaires, and I don't want to be in a position where we have to assess whether any given billionaire has our best interests at heart.

Prediction: Trump will pardon OJ Simpson.

Why, you ask?

Do you have to ask?

Of Trump's many bad legacies, the one that scares me most is presidential blessing of RW terrorism.

And that right-wing terrorism is not going away regardless of whether Trump is re-elected or not.

Remember Charlottesville. Remember Christchurch. Remember El Paso. Remember Squirrel Hill. And so on...

Trump already has gazillions of rotten, evil, disgraceful, damaging-beyond-repair aspects of his legacy - had them before he was even the Republican nominee, even before he ran (Birtherism, anyone?) - but encouraging white supremacist violence and hate crimes of all sorts has got to rank as one one of the worst, even by his lowlife standards.

Will we ever recover?

It's underused for the worst kind of behavior. See, I believe in morality.

And I believe that good and evil exist.
