However I can see that if Trump and his mates get indicted, the loony right who will get into Congress in next January will move to immediately get rid of Biden and Harris and install somebody else as President, maybe McCarthy, and then pardon them all.
Hey Bruce, if the GOP get elected then that means most Merkins want them, right?

Nah Bruce, the Dems have probably have a full 5% lead in the popular vote, the gerrymandering and voter restriction swings it back to the GOP, and that might get a lot worse this time.

Merka has not been a true democracy for maybe 30 years, and it is about to get a lot worse.

Trump is an example of what is wrong in merka. If he has money his opinion is worth more than anybody else and their way in life is smoothed out by their system.

Despite the fact that he is failed businessman who is more akin to a conman he still has the attention of their media because he makes them coin.

A lot of his followers a people who just want someone to look after their interests. Trump realised that and has played them to the hilt.

Rudy about to flip on Donald?


The guy is a broke drunk and losing his mind. He is facing life in solitary.

My guess is he has known this for some time, that explains his crazy behaviour.

What I cannot figure out is why Trump did not pardon him? He pardoned far less helpful people including those two bent congressmen.

If I had to guess, and just a guess, Trump isn't worried about what Giuliani will spill. There may be no smoking gun to Trump.

or

Maybe Trump has something in Giuliani far worse than life in solitary.

What a crazy country.

two interesting tweets about the MAGA crowd today:

They have worked out that it's better to confess to the crime of stealing an election on TV, and then pretend everything is normal twitter.com/Acyn/status/14…

That is what Putin does.

Do you think Barr will be called to give evidence? Hope so.

As an out and out liar Putin is not in the same league as Trump, Johnson and Morrison. Possibly more democratic leaning than them as well.
Putin is no democrat, he is just very cunning and keeps an eye on public opinion. he doesn't lie as much as he politicians, because he doesn't have to...nobody questions him.

However I agree he is far more intelligent.

Probably we are coming at this from the wrong direction, Putin and Xi are clear logical thinkers, their goals may not align with ours but they follow a far more logical path.

A clear sign of this is NATO and the merkins saying to Russia they should de escalate to reduce tensions, yet they are pouring arms into Ukraine.Seems de escalation only goes one way.

They are both murdering psychopaths. Psychopaths can be very clear thinkers and don't scare easily. Neither do they brook dissent. Merkins are bumblers at foreign relations.
The western corporate interests who our governments work for are complicit in Xi's genocide of the Uighurs, can't afford not to be. The most logical pack of gangsters usually comes out on top, that appears to be Vlad and Xi's boys.

Probably the most successful psychopath was FDR.

History says that psychopaths usually stuff up in the end. Mao, Hitler, Stalin, Genghis Khan, Atilla the Hun. Julius Caesar. FDR never really got the chance.

Please don't listen to farkwits like Tucker Carlson and his sycophantic dipstick mates at Fox.

Was watching a show saying that 57 people that were involved in the January 6 insurrection are running for office over in America. There are massive concerns of unrest by the time if not around the time of the next election.

Is it only that many? There are some serious loonies running for important state positions.

That adds to the loonies getting into both the Senate and Congress, as well as governors positions.

Rick Wilson, a long time former Republican strategist, and one who woke up to Trump long ago says the threats to take action against the Jan 6 committee members are real.

He says if the GOP win the mid terms in November the country will be a one party authoritarian state, with possibly Jim Jordan as house speaker. They will try and impeach Biden, and in any case bunt anything he wants to do.

He doubts the Democrats have the leadership to respond.

We are watching history ladies and jellybeans. This is the twilight of democracy.

A lot happening in Trump world this week.

First he offered to pardon the Jan 6 rioters.

Then he asks everybody to have massive protests if he is indicted.

A hint to the loonies who believe violence is justified, and therefore a warning to all the prosecutors and worse, potential grand jury members.

He calls the prosecutors racist and corrupt.

He is sounding desperate...here is maybe why:

He is full on broke.

He cannot afford his current and looming legal fees. He has got the GOP to pay his bills for him.

He has about US$90 million in the bank right now.

He has many millions in assets as well.

The assets are mortgaged, possibly way beyond their value. All his businesses are losing money badly. No lenders want to know him.

He has to repay about US$300 million in a year or two.

He is facing over US$100 million in fines from New York for tax evasion.

He is facing bankruptcy.

He has 100s of millions in campaign donations. They can only be used for campaign finance. So the GOP pay his legal bills, and he will give his campaign fund to them later.
