Key Take-Away: IT’S GO TIME FOLKS! Time to put an end to This Administration. It’s my understanding that Obstruction of Justice is locked in and has been for six months. It’s my understanding that Mueller and Team want to go ahead and close this piece out. You also see now why Rep. Devin Nunes has been in a panic lately.
As I’ve said for months, this was a Three Act Play. We’re now getting ready to begin Act 1. The purpose of this is to get Impeachment over and done with. The more serious charges await.
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.
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.
Key Take-Away: If these numbers remain the same for the next 9 months, there is no way this Administration or the Republican led Congress survives. I suspect theses numbers will get slightly worse. The numbers that jump out to me is the enthusiasm gap between Republicans and Democrats. Coupled with 62% of Independents thinking The IDIOT hasn’t accomplished much is brutal. Not to mention, giving more credit for the good Economy to Obama. There is simply not a lot The IDIOT and Les Miserables can hang their hats on as positive. I guess one could make an argument that the reduction in Federal Employees and Regulations is a positive. But this is blunted by the unpopularity of the Tax Cut. Immigration Reform is 50/50 argument. The killing of the Affordable Care Act number is BRUTAL. I see Immigration Reform and ACA as Base arguments. Meaning, they gin up the excitement level of the the Base of each party. Hard to see how that’s a winning argument for Republicans when coupled with the enthusiasm gap.
Key Take-Away: This is superb reporting by The Washington Post. They saw Politico’s piece and topped it. Adding some key corrections. It’s obvious that they spoke with John Kelly and had him refute that it was he that killed the deal and was all McConnell’s and Ryan’s doing. Ouch. This reporting also underscores that The IDIOT is simply not all there mentally. You simply can’t do business in good faith with someone like that. I suspect we’ll get some additional deets in the coming days. I would also look for any resolution to come from the Moderate wing of both Parties.
