    • Assassination Works Only Under Two Circumstances
      For years, decades even, America has had a policy of assassination. Americans believe that if you kill the leaders, you kill an organization. This is delusional. It only works when it almost isn’t necessary. How many times has American killed the #2 man of the Taliban? Did killing Osama stop Al-Qaeda? Assassinating Yamamoto in WWII […]

Everything’s fine. Why do you ask?

Oh I dunno. Maybe it’s because the annoying orange’s cabinet in the White House is seriously considering invoking the 25th amendment?

He doesn’t even know what that is.

According to two sources familiar with the conversation, Trump vented to his longtime security chief, Keith Schiller, “I hate everyone in the White House! There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!” (A White House official denies this.) Two senior Republican officials said Chief of Staff John Kelly is miserable in his job and is remaining out of a sense of duty to keep Trump from making some sort of disastrous decision. Today, speculation about Kelly’s future increased after Politico reported that Kelly’s deputy Kirstjen Nielsen is likely to be named Homeland Security Secretary—the theory among some Republicans is that Kelly wanted to give her a soft landing before his departure.

One former official even speculated that Kelly and Secretary of Defense James Mattis have discussed what they would do in the event Trump ordered a nuclear first strike. “Would they tackle him?” the person said. Even Trump’s most loyal backers are sowing public doubts. This morning, The Washington Post quoted longtime Trump friend Tom Barrack saying he has been “shocked” and “stunned” by Trump’s behavior.

Ahhh, the Jaime Lannister Maneuver. Lol! How much do you want to bet they’re calling it that in private.

Jeezus Tap Dancing Christ.

Lady V said this would happen eventually. Let’s hope he doesn’t take the rest of us down with him.

  1. Package for Preznit Covfefe:

  2. In one way, “getting 25thed” could work out well for Preznit Covfefe. It might allow him to plead reduced mental capacity, hence reduced legal responsibility, when Mueller Time comes.

  3. Putin, OTOH, is fully intelligent, and should be punished for his insolence in sabotaging our elections, by every means short of actual shooting war.

  4. What I love is that the media acting like they’ve discovered trump’s instability, unfitness and incompetence for the job, when Hillary WARNED us numerous times throughout the campaign that he was not fit to be anywhere near it. Of course, they couldn’t listen to any woman! So, they drowned her out with their dark obsession with her e-mails, while ignoring trump’s in your face mental problems and corruption. They painted him simply as an unorthodox outsider and even went so far as to predict that he would become “presidential” once in office. Really, how did they know this? How low could the bar have gone in order for them to give him any credibility at all? It was maddening. Every time I hear the media refer to him as “the President”, I cringe. He is anything but presidential.

    In 2017, we see our country in dire straits because of the patriarchy’s inexplicable hatred of women. They proved it by attacking with unrelenting vitriol the most qualified person to run for the office in our lifetime and who happened to be female, while placating sanders and trump, whom they deliberately chose not to vet. If they had done a quarter of the investigations into trump that they are doing now, we could have avoided this trainwreck. Hillary has been vetted for 30 years, but they still went after her with a vengence.

    I will never forgive the media’s complicit role in putting trump in the WH and what we are having to go through as a result. Sorry U.S., sorry Puerto Rico, sorry U.S. Virgin Islands, sorry world, but at least we stopped that woman from becoming President!

  5. Dear Majority of White Folks of the USA:

    Again, the Japanese must wonder how in the ever-loving Madoka-damned WORLD they ever lost that war to such a gaggle of knuckle-walkers. (Short answer: the plutocrats who benefit from the general public being a gaggle of knuckle-walkers had been knocked out of running the country–alas, only temporarily–by the Great Depression, which was so obviously the fault of the plutocrats.)

    • Oh, I forgot to add “allowing smarter people to come to power, and to cultivate intelligence among the general public–that latter cultivation being turbo-charged by the necessity of winning that war, and the Cold War which followed it.”

      • Of course, the dirty little (not so) secret of the Amurkan plutocracy is that then, and now, a great many (a majority?) of its members really, really wish the USA had stayed out of WW2, and that the Axis had won it.

        Actually, the USSR would have won it alone, if they had had to do that; it would merely have taken longer. The only way Ratzi Germany was ever going to beat the Russkies is if they had gotten The Bomb–and, IIRC, after the war, we found out that the Ratzi scientists had been barking up the wrong trees, and never would have developed it.

        So, if we had stayed out of the European wing of WW2–which FDR would have had to do, if Hitler had been smart enough not to declare war on us following Pearl Harbor–it would have merely resulted in Soviet control of all of Continental Europe.
