Yeah, I saw where someone made the King George comparison. I think that "obstruction" would be the opposite of "faithfully executing" described in Article II. And anyway, he's not a crook, yada yada.

but seriously though, should I hope that our allies call his bluff? I am by no means an accelerationist or an anarchist although I doubt that even if they didn't acquiesce to his demands Trump would follow through. he'd still look petulant either way. and that's not a good look for us!

It's a tough question. As a Canadian, I instinctively would like Trudeau to stand his ground, but an unleashed hardline Trump policy towards trade with Canada could potentially cripple us. But at the same time, fuck Trump. People need to begin standing up to this cunt, regardless of possible repercussions.

Gee, I hate to place any hope on the GOP at this point, but there have been some rather disturbed reactions coming from the more sober-minded pragmatists - the same ones who have been backing Trump almost solely for economic reasons (tax cuts, deregulations, sustained boom). Nearly every professional economist I've seen, across ideology, thinks that this is precisely the wrong time to be attempting this kind of trade posturing, with the most optimistic simply choosing to believe that there's no way that Trump would be so stupid as to go through with his bluff. Most of them are more frightened, and are taking Bernanke's prediction very seriously.

Also, I've either seen Republicans who are choosing to ignore Trump's comments about Russia this weekend, or who are quietly suggesting that it can only mean that he's guilty as a ratfucking dog. Again, I have very little hope that they will spine-up anytime soon.

but I don't know if I can assume this is what's going on in Trump's head. once again I'm throw for a pretty serious loop since like you (Janson) said, you would think this would be the breaking point for a lot more Republicans. but they've forgiven an awful lot in the past.... it's just so endlessly strange.

Looks like they have a photo of top NRA officials meeting in Moscow with, not only Russians and not only sanctioned Russians but, Russians who have very publicly expressed opinions about taking down Western Civilization. And their "dark money" donations include a lot of suspicious LLCs.

And there are some new revelations about Russian involvement in Brexit as well! Farage had to kick a reporter off his radio show.

As someone who grew up just outside Atlantic City, that's the most ridiculous assumption I can think of. The Trump Organization doesn't pay for shit. The Trump Organization cashes the check and immediately files for bankruptcy to leave everyone else holding the tab. If you hitch your wagon in 2018 to the idea that The Trump Organization will pay your bills, you may be mentally incapacitated.

Michelle Goldberg made this connection during the campaign, pointing out how Trump's paranoia regarding immigrants/Muslims, being both parasites clawing for unearned prosperity as well as being embedded among the "liberal elite", mirrors the anti-Semitic Nazi stereotypes of the Jew, a lowly verminous people who are secretly pulling the strings behind every major global event.

Trump has mastered the textbook.

I assume I don't need to write out why I don't think Trump deserves kudos for ending child separation. I'll just have to risk looking like the kind of partisan asshole who rants about anything and everything Trump does.

also I know there have been plenty of Trump critic critics who have pointed out the similarities between Obama and Trump's immigration policies (i.e. not the child separation stuff) and why that didn't produce any outrage. and they're not wrong even if I suspect the narrative they're pushing is "Trump critics are hypocrites" and not the common thread of immigrant abuse throughout different presidential administrations. though I would then wonder why Obama's immigration policies didn't stop Trump from connecting with voters with his 'tough on immigrants' rhetoric. I just wanna know what they want.

I'm always hesitant to put too much weight on any election of this size or to revere any one political figure.

HOWEVER, yeah I did pump my fist a bit at the news. Trump's policies are going to have bad consequences for the young, the non-white, and the working class on down. so any voices from those camps going to Congress should be a good thing. or at least I would hope someone from those camps would speak with more urgency and clarity about some of our country's problems than Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer (no offense). I mean, imagine what kind of climate change legislation would be written by people who plan to be alive in the next 50ish years.

EDIT: well, maybe it is a bit significant since it seems like more than a few people are shook. socialism just ain't as dirty a word as it used to be

It'll definitely be fun to see how they'll try to act like they're not retaliating for Rosenstein embarrassing Trump right before his big date, but I'm not yet convinced that most people will fail to see this for what it is.

I like how both Stone and Trump's first responses to these indictments is to invoke, in their own way, the "missing DNC server", which is a roundabout reference to the theory that the server hack was actually an inside job by the suspiciously murdered Seth Rich (see Stone's congressional testimony for more on that), and, as such, tacit rejections of the legitimacy of these Mueller indictments without having to explicitly refute them.

As always, the appearance to any cognizant observer is that of a guilty party attempting to avoid direct eye contact.

The EU is now a "foe", while Putin remains ("hopefully") a possible friend.

I thought it was a underreported should-be-scandal that Trump reportedly had tried to financially coerce Macron into exiting France out of the EU, a move that would be crippling. Now, not only ambushing Britain's May by publishing his support for her rival prior to their meeting, he has allegedly suggested that Britain bring suit against the EU. Not quite as crippling, but deeply disruptive.

And yet that was all still too subtle.

it's like, what do US conservatives even stand for these days? assuming the Party of Trump are still conservatives.

also I hope nobody is sleeping on his straight-up white nationalist rhetoric either.

Quote:
"I think [immigration] changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was and I don’t mean that in a positive way."


Quote:
"I just think [immigration is] changing the culture. I think it’s a very negative thing for Europe. I think it’s very negative. And I know it’s politically not necessarily correct to say that. But I’ll say it and I’ll say it loud. And I think they better watch themselves because you are changing the culture."


but I don't know how most of this is different than anything that could have said in 2016. which is wearying.

In addition to the growing details of their GRU hacking program, it happens to be a fact that Russia, in their 2015 National Security Strategy, designated America as their "enemy", so, you know, that's a clue. It's quite an equivalence to compare the EU's trade policies with the first seizure of soveriegn territory in Europe since WWII, again even without considering the '16 election.

That's the classic Stephen Bannon (Camp of the Saints) influence. Bannon, more or less coincidentally, happens to be in London at the moment, supporting an anti-Muslim activist in jail on a contempt charge, and inevitably getting caught off-mic obscenely castigating a radio host. I wonder why it's so difficult for people to take their honorable crusade seriously?

I still get suspicious of anyone who doesn't think this is abnormal or that this is necessary diplomacy to "make Russia our ally" or whatever. I know this is not a kitchen table issue and that Trump's victory/Hillary's loss involves many many many many more factors than Russian shenanigans. and that Americans are hypocrites for suddenly caring about foreign inference now that it's us who are being interfered with.

it's just weird. it's all very weird. we are all Mitt Romney at the 2012 Presidential Debates now.

Even FOX News is starting to realize how fucked up this is.

Check out the comments from Friday by Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, which got obscured under the coverage of Mueller's indictments: "Today, the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack", invoking 9/11 in order to give scale of an impending cyberattack. "The warning lights are blinking red again." Rather than rebuke Trump today, he merely said that the facts will speak for themselves. This is Trump's handpicked Republican officer.

This shit is real, it happened, and it's happening. I don't necessarily believe in pee tapes, but Trump got into bed with some shady Russians who showered him with dirty dirty money.
