John Lithgow pens book of protest poetry about Trump: 'A lot of damage is being done'

Lithgow, who says that he’s “always been reticent to go political in a public way” hopes that “Dumpty: The Age of Trump in Verse,” a collection of poems and illustrations he’s crafted, may help wake readers up to the prospect of four more years. ........

THE TRIUMPH OF DONALD TRUMP/ is the triumph of Vladimir Putin. If Trump is not removed, then Putin wins. How does that set with out rabidly patriotic righties. It doesn't matter does it, you all have scorched-earth mentalities. Better to have a Trump/Putin and descend unto hell than a politically boring and hated (by you) president who will nevertheless keep us relatively safe. Putin is padding his Trump-assisted wish list before the latter gets impeached. Just in case.

SCOOP: Top Ukrainian officials were alerted in early August* that $391m in US military help was frozen. * This timeline undercuts a key TRUMP defense: that Ukraine couldn't have felt pressured to investigate his rivals if they didn't know of the freeze.

ALSO NEW: Top Ukrainian officials were told MICK MULVANEY was behind the military assistance freeze & would need to approve the release of the $391m. This shows:

The President Has No Defense

After the bombshell testimony by the U.S. envoy to Ukraine, the best Trump can hope for is mercy.

 

"....I f I were one of the president’s lawyers, I would counsel him to admit the obvious—essentially to plead guilty and admit this was, in fact, a quid pro quo—and try and convince Congress and the public that it is not as bad as it looks.

In my experience, defendants who stubbornly try to deny the obvious in the face of overwhelming evidence rarely convince anyone. ......

Taylor’s testimony undercuts the prior testimony of other witnesses, like Sondland and Volker. At best, their prior testimony was incomplete and misleading. At worst, it was materially false ....

Bolton recommended that he write a cable directly to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Taylor wrote that cable on August 29, calling the Trump pressure effort “folly” and stating that he “would not defend such a policy.” Taylor said Pompeo never responded to him but he heard that Pompeo carried the cable with him to a White House meeting.

Pompeo has a lot of explaining to do......

there is more to come.

A smart defense team would get ahead of this by admitting that there was a quid pro quo, falling back to the argument advanced by some on the right, like Tucker Carlson, that the conduct was wrong but impeachment is too severe of a remedy.

If Republicans quickly admitted what Trump did but insisted that they wanted the American people to decide Trump’s fate in December, they might reduce the damage and move past this episode, assuming they had the votes in the U.S. Senate to prevent conviction. If Trump refuses to allow them to adopt that strategy, he becomes Republicans’ own worst enemy. Because if Taylor’s testimony is any guide, they will reach that point eventually, and the road getting there will be rocky for the administration."

Trump says US is building a wall in Colorado -- a state that doesn't border Mexico

"Well this is awkward ...Colorado doesn't border Mexico," Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis wrote. "Good thing Colorado now offers free full day kindergarten so our kids can learn basic geography."

In the 90s trump was trying to get the innocent black Central Park 5 teenagers executed.

But, today trump's name is horse manure in Central Park.

That's Poetic Justice at its best.

trump's son-in-law slumlord may be responsible for a lot of rat infestation in Baltimore and New Jersey,

But trump is the biggest rat in the White House. So it's no wonder he calls it a dump.

The principle for which we contend is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form.

Jake how in the heck can we have a civil war when there is no clear physical boundaries  like during the Jefferson Davis era.  Are the Democrats and Republicans planning to move to opposite sides of the Mississippi and slug it out?

At worse can expect sporadic rioting and bar room brawls.  There is a thing called Martial Law.

Civil wars are conflicts between two opposing groups in one country.  Does not have to be geographical divisions, although that is frequent as in the American Civil War.

Regardless, there is zero likelihood of civil war in US.  IF there was one, it would not be based on any of the principles which Jefferson Davis stood for.

There are certainly still racists around who defend that man and defend the ideals he stood for. You don't even have to travel far from this board for that. I suspect any potential modern Civil War would end up like the Russian civil war with fifty different fractions brawling. The Evangelicals could be the American Basmachis. :lol:
