68% of White Evangelicals say America has no responsibility to house refugees fleeing famine and war. That’s 25% over the national average
Too right, Josh. Every time someone starts to get their shizzel on as a holler-than-thou, right-wing do-gooder some sad-sac sticks his nose in with some of those completely inappropriate Christ-isms……”Turn the other cheek……Do unto others as you would have them do unto you……feed the poor and the hungry….., etc., etc., etc.” Bah!  Can’t we do without those weak-kneed, out-dated ideas yet still be counted as Christians? Isn’t there a religion that has no use for flaccid, watery, shit like that? Scientology?

WELCOME, North Korea!
It looks as if yesterday was the unofficial (Official) welcome of North Korea into the World Nuclear Club. From here on out I think you’re going to hear less and less about a nuclear-free Korean peninsula and more and more how the U.S. will be cutting back or eliminating sanctions on N.K. (as Trumpy and his minions continue to try to pretend that the U.S. is getting something out of this). And of course the whole thing was handled in the usual Trump ham-handed manner…..Trump looked like an over-stuffed used car salesman (a role for which his hair style was perfect), trying to interest a reluctant Lil’ Kim into buying the ’89 Buick as he glad-handed and back-patted him around the lot.
But, looked at from a certain point of view this whole thing was a win-win-win for all of the principals. Kim gets everything he could of ever wanted (and all he has to do is to continue writing sappy letters to Trump—an odious burden, no doubt). Trump gets to continue to pretend that he has a coherent foreign policy, and some sort of skill as a negotiator (which of course he doesn’t have a trace of), while the rest of us here in the U.S. can finally stop pretending that we give a fuck about anything that happens in a shit-hole like North Korea.

Red got a tax cut...
Heh….yeah, but how far does $24 go? Red needs to make some contacts…..Maybe he could arrange to star in one of those TV commercials that Republithugs put out in the past to try and get the tax measure passed (the kind where a ‘fictional’ couple are talking about the $2000 tax break they are about to get)….only in Red’s commercial he and his wife go into a supermarket to spend their tax break money and they are able to purchase one steak…..each.

As for Biden... he's made all sorts of claims of what his prior position was.
Just prior to his entering the race there was much talk as to wether Joe was yesterday’s news….people wondering if he was going to be in touch with the newer, more leftist positions of some of the Democratic hopefuls. So what does Joe the Bonehead do, right out of the box? Gets himself embroiled in some useless argument about his co-operation with segregationist senators from some 30 or 40 years ago. Smart, Joe. You could not have dug yourself a swampier hole if you had dug it yourself. Wait a minute, you did dig it yourself! Nobody wanted to hear about how cozy you were with some chicken-eaten’, finger lickin’ good ole boys from way back. What they wanted to hear about was how you were going to get rid of the Big Mac eating orange blob currently camped in the Oval Office. That is priority one. Personally, I am glad Harris torched him in the debates the other day. I think Joe is like an old ballplayer who’s mind tells him he could still play but whose body tells him something different. The sooner he eases into retirement and allows one of the more energetic Dems to come forward the better.

When you send Elliott Abrams as your special rep to Venezuela you pretty much declare war.
Elliot Abrams…..It’s like Trump has disinterred some smelly old corpse from the distant past and told him to “Have a go” at it. (All part of his pledge, apparently, to get “only the best people”). Is it any surprise that one of Abrams’ zombie pals from that same era—Oliver North—is somehow alive and involved with something shady…..All great Americans back from their unfair treatment in the past to help screw things up for the current ‘Great American’—idiot-boy Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump, the Great Golden Minotaur, convened a meeting in the Oval Office last week in an attempt to construct some sort of coherent foreign policy vis-a-vie Venezuela. Invited were a number of Trump’s most loyal retainers, including Vice President Mike (Dumb as a Fence Post) Pence and Trump’s Chief of Staff-Mick (The Dick) Mulvaney (A.K.A. the Pin-head Twins), along with Sec. of State Mike (Porky) Pompeo (not pictured due to space constraints).
   The meeting began with a light-hearted discussion about how Lindsey Graham appears to have lost his mind, after which the so-called President of the United States offered a suggestion that we Nuke somebody ‘down there’. This idea was quickly tabled, after which the discussion began to descend into chaos.
    Porky Pompeo announced that he had to leave in order to attend a diplomatic luncheon at the Saudi embassy, while nobody else seemed to be able to get Donald Trump to stop mumbling about the ’tremendous’ Big Mac sandwich that he was planning to eat for lunch that day (nobody else was invited to stay to eat). On their way out of the Oval Office the Pin-head Twins noticed that several members of the Trump Crone Brigade (led by Kellyanne Conway) had glided into the room to lay down protective plastic sheets to protect the desk and carpeting before Trump began to chow down.
     In the end, everyone else in the United States was left to try and guess just what in the hell we we trying to do in Venezuela—(as if what what was happening in this sovereign nation was any of our business in the first place).

Assange won't be tortured and has plenty of time to live in the unlikely event he is given the sentence you fear.
Or, they could just turn him over to their Saudi friends to be hacked into tiny pieces…..How about that solution?

Nice to see you around, Driver.
Why…..thank you, Barton. I’ve been quite busy, and I only take an occasional glance in here these days. Waiting for the inevitable Trump resignation.—NP

Barr does seem to be ignoring the legal precedent he himself mentioned to Sen. Capito.
Barr has made it clear early that he is a Chump for Trump. Don’t expect any fairness when dealing with this little porker.

Mnuchin has a hard time understanding the rule of law.
Please! He’s worried……if he blows this the divorce papers from his money-grubbing wife will be flying faster than a government-funded jet……

Trump Russia: Seven legal headaches for the president:
There he would be, all alone in his cell……boo hoo. I would imagine the White House might be looking a bit better after some time behind bars.
    But I don’t think he will spend any time in jail. Nobody from the Bush crowd did (except Scooter Libby). I believe he will make a deal. I think they will offer not to prosecute on the Russia stuff if he agrees to leave the WH within a week. They would most likely leave the financial stuff in place with the State of New York, but Trump is an old hand fighting off that kind of thing. He would spend the rest of his life in courtrooms, but it would beat prison time. Normally you would expect him to hold on like a wolverine with its teeth sunk in your leg because losing is such anathema to him. But he also is capable of recognizing a hopeless situation (witness his many bankruptcies).

William Barr will be the best Attorney General since 1991
Was he put up by Donald Trump? Go with past performance, idiot boy. Plenty of room in that wall of faces who used to work for Trump but who are now on the scrap heap.
