Call your congress person and demand impeachment

I just called my Congresswoman, Spanberger, to demand Impeachment.

I also left a message for Speaker Pelosi demanding impeachment as well.

We’re looking at the rule of King Donald the Deranged if we don’t act!

Please call your representatives today!

Called my Congresswoman to suggest a bill allowing Air Traffic Controllers to strike

Allow TSA employees to strike as well with the condition it only applies IF they aren’t being paid.

I know it will never become law, but it may have some symbolic impact.

If we could close down air travel, the shutdown would end.

Trump's situation is worse than Nixon's

In that he was very close to the original crime of conspiracy, if not directly involved in it.

Nixon wasn’t that closely involved in the actual Watergate break-in.

The only way Trump is better off than Nixon is that the right wing lying machine didn’t exist in the 70’s.

I suspect that there is so much evidence that Fox et al won’t be able to save Trump. They will drag out the process but there is too much hard evidence of wrongdoing with cell phone records, emails, etc. These people left trails that a blind man could follow.

I believe that there is so much hard evidence to be presented it will blow people's minds

Especially if those people have been listening to the orange monster and Fox News.

There will be some last gasp supporters, but a lot of people are going to be blasted out of the right wing echo chamber into reality.

I also believe that those people, in turn, will move Republican Senators.

Their supervisor set them up with fraudulent work permits

Stop that kind of stuff and illegal immigration gets much easier to manage.

The repugnants know this but let the issue fester to motivate their red neck voters.

MSM will tell the truth at some point after the Democrats start open hearings

Information is going to come out to a wider audience from the hearings. It will eventually be corroborated by info from Mueller’s team, SDNY the New York attorney general and other investigators.

Once the hearings start and a large percentage of Americans have easy access to this information, the coverup is going to fall apart. There’s too much malfeasance to hide it forever.

MSM will be forced to cover it.

That's refreshing to see

Now stop amplifying his lies by repeating what said/tweeted verbatim.

I’d like to see/hear something like “Trump told 12 lies in the last week about a “caravan” of people walking across Southern Mexico.”

“Trump repeatedly exaggerated the number of people, made unsubstantiated claims that Middle Eastern terrorists were included in in the group.”

“Trump also claimed that he would order the military to stop the invasion. However calling it an invasion is not accurate when talking about unarmed civilians and it isn’t clear that the military could be used this way legally, due to the Posse Comitatus Act, that limits using the military for domestic law enforcement.”

We Democrats keep acting as if we expect decent behavior from the repugnant goons-we should not

The repugnant goon part has adopted a scorched earth policy dating back for decades.

It is import to remember Trump isn't some aberration of republican philosophy, he is just the next logical step in dishonest, scorched earth politics. Fox Noise and hate radio paved the way for Trump to spread conspiracy theories. Don the Con just took the lying to another level.

Expecting today's repug party to act in good faith is a mistake. Nothing matters to them except winning.

Susan Collins will of course have different standards of behavior for Democrats and repugnant goon politicians - and judges.

Mitch Mcturtle will of course consider delaying Obama's SCOTUS pick for a year nothing and scream bloody murder at the idea of slowing down the nomination of Sir BoofsALot.

In retrospect, expecting anything other than a whitewash regarding the supplemental investigation of barfing Brett was really naive. They weren't going to follow up on the allegations of Debra Ramirez because the allegations were true and the goons didn't want any information to derail the confirmation, so they made sure that the FBI didn't ask for corroboration.

Sexual assault allegations are also no big deal to repugnant politicians and to their base if you have an R by your name.

Perjury, smurgery, so what? It's okay for Kav to lie about his drinking under oath, but it was an impeachable offense for Bill Clinton to lie about a consensual affair.

Bottom line is that we should expect that they are going to behave like this. We should quit letting any expectations of decency from these thugs cause us disappointment or cause us to drop our guard. They are lying, opportunistic thugs and that is going to be their MO at every turn.

We should attack the lies and corruption every day without repeating the right wing talking points.

Some democratic politician should get in front of a camera every morning and give the daily Trump lie briefing for the prior day, saying something like "Trump lied 6 times yesterday, twice about immigration, three times about the economy and once about the Mueller investigation." These statements should be matter of fact in tone, maybe prefaced with a statement that Trump has told X number of verifiable lies so far in his presidency, making it clear that Trump lying 6 times is a day is nothing unusual. It is not acceptable behavior, but at this point it is expected, because Trump is a serial liar.

Further explanation would be fact checks avoiding the RW rhetoric, something like, the Trump described a group of non-white immigrants as criminals, when historically, these people commit fewer crimes than citizens born in the USA. He claimed that immigrants that were seeking asylum had entered the country illegally, when they had not.

It should take a super majority to seat a supreme court justice

Add that to the list of constitutional amendments we need.

Others include eliminating the electoral college, limiting campaign spending to something like .5% of median income per person per year, declaring that corporate person-hood doesn't include any political rights at all.

And changing the 2nd amendments to allow regulation of gun rights for private citizens.
