Key Take-Aways: We are now at the stage where folks are throwing whatever they can in the arena. It’s actually pretty remarkable to see the desperation and the lengths they are willing to go. Consequences be damned. I think we can all agree that regardless of what comes from this, there needs to be a thorough cleansing of Congress. Folks simply need to be fired as they aren’t fit to serve. And Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WS 1st), need to be top of the list. Their lack of Leadership during this period is beyond terrible.
Key Take-Aways: You start seeing stories like this when one side is losing very badly. And it’s not Mueller’s Team. Folks in the White House are now at the stage where they will begin to leak stories that paint them in sympathetic lights. They all want a soft landing spot when this shitshow is over. So I’d look for more background pieces like this. The fact that the IDIOT can’t seem to understand that the DOJ doesn’t work for him, but for the American Public has caused him to commit numerous acts of Obstruction of Justice. Either he’s incapable of grasping this or doesn’t care. And having his people go out and make the argument that it’s not really Obstruction because he didn’t go through with the firing, is ridiculous. And they know this.
Key Take-Aways: John Kelly is discoverying that life comes at you fast in The IDIOT’s Administration. He should have learned from EVERY other person that has out shown The IDIOT. It will hasten your exit stage left. The interviews he conducted last week, combined with the press he received from the #TrumpShutdown and being called President Kelly sealed the deal.
To add injury to insult, Ivanka has been given the job of trying to find his replacement. Ouch! Look for Kelly to be gone shortly after February 8, at the latest.
Key Take-Aways: Rev. Barber is a gifted speaker. His Moral Mondays are legendary, if you’re not familiar with them, please become so. And the speech he gave at the 2016 Democratic National Convention will be studied for years. This is a very nuanced and layered piece. It’s also dealing with a subject that needs to be discussed. It is past time we have a COME TO JESUS MEETING with White Evangelicals. Something is rotten amongst their ranks and needs to be rooted out for what it is.
And I love how he ALWAYS refers to JESUS as a brown-skinned Palestinian Jew. As we say in the community, show me where he lying!
Key Take-Away: Renato lays out the case he believes Mueller has. And this is without all the facts that Mueller has. He’s simply using what’s in the public arena, and even that is quite damning. I’d also add that it’s obvious that Mueller felt compelled to move on this piece now to parry any additional attempts The IDIOT planned to make with respect to firing him. We also now have greater clarity into why allies of The IDIOT have been in a frenzy the last month or so. Should be a fun February.
