Well, Since You Asked Me: The Rise Of Trumpvangelicals (William Barber, II/Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove)

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!

Well, Since You Asked Me: The Hate That Is Revealing Obama’s Greatness (Jonathan Chait)

Key Take-Away:  It was widely expected that the more distance Obama got from his time in office, we’d have a greater appreciation for what he accomplished. We underestimated the speed which this would occur. Undoubtedly, it’s aided by the sheer dislike and incompetence of The IDIOT, but the fact remains, over time Obama will be judged as a very, very good POTUS. And fortunately the more we see of The IDIOT and his scandals, the more favorable Obama becomes. 

Well, Since You Asked Me: Dana Boente To Become FBI General Counsel (Sari Horwitz/Matt Zapotosky)

Key Take-Away:  This is simply a brilliant move. Dana Boente will leave his post to become General Counsel for the FBI. That literally is the largest middle finger Wray could send to The IDIOT and Jeff Sessions. The man that got the ball rolling on #Russiagate and was the lead in leading the first wave of Grand Juries into #Russiagate, will now serve as GC of the FBI. I’m almost certain this move was orchestrated by Mueller, McCabe and Comey. This is simply a brilliant move.

Well, Since You Asked Me: FBI Director, Christopher Wray, Threatened To Resign Amid Pressure From The IDIOT And Jeff Sessions (Devlin Barrett/Philip Rucker)

Key Take-Away:  This is a huge deal. In his actions Wray shows his loyalty is to the FBI and he could give two shits what The IDIOT and Jeff Sessions thinks. This will win him respect from the ranks. It also makes him untouchable. On the flip side, it is again quite obvious that Jeff Sessions needs to resign. He’s compromised and making decisions to save his job instead of doing what’s best for the Country. Lastly, it underscores that The IDIOT is done. Wray has seen enough to know what Mueller and Team are working with.

Well, Since You Asked Me: Ten Take-Aways From #TrumpShutdown Ending (Jennifer Rubin)

Key Take-Away:  These are some good Take-Aways. I think the Foreign Affairs angle is spot on. And I predict it will come back to bite us in the ass. The Filibuster Proofing Angle is worth watching. I think they have at least 70 votes +. I also agree this puts enormous pressure on House Speaker Paul Ryan. But he’s essentially a lame-duck. If he wants to leave a legacy, he might just buck the Freedom Caucus.
