"A very-stable genius" book review on The Guardian:

 

 

Although the title of A Very Stable Genius ironically adopts Trump’s preening self-description, Rucker and Leonnig present him as a lord of misrule who delights in instability, running a government that resembles “a virtual tilt-a-whirl” at a carnival. Despite his claim to be a genius, under his combed-over crown he has an entirely vacuous head: he tells India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, that it’s a good thing the country doesn’t have a border with China, and at a ceremony in Pearl Harbor he asks what exactly happened there to justify the commemoration. Forget about CIA briefings: as Steve Bannon puts it, Trump “doesn’t even know what intelligence is”. As proof, Rucker and Leonnig have a scoop about one of his crazier wheezes. Denied funds for his wall along the Mexican border, he proposes a human chain of hefty enforcers, hundreds of thousands of them, who would join hands in a barricade extending across 1,200 miles. A stable genius or a rampaging dimwit?

Conservative Pastor says Jesus would have 'beat the crap' out of John Bolton

NewsWeek by Aila Slisco

A conservative evangelical pastor has lamented not physically assaulting former National Security Adviser John Bolton when he had the chance, while insisting that Jesus Christ would have "beat the crap out of" Bolton for disobeying President Donald Trump.

Rodney Howard-Browne, who has previously visited the White House to "lay hands" [a religious practice conferring a blessing or authority] on Trump. Rodney lashed out at Bolton over recent news that the former ambassador's upcoming book may confirm the existence of a quid pro quo between Trump and the Ukraine—the central issue in Trump's impeachment trial. The preacher suggested on Twitter that Bolton was a traitor deserving of physical punishment for not remaining loyal to Trump.

"You are a slime ball of the highest order," tweeted Howard-Browne on Wednesday, apparently addressing Bolton. "I should have knocked your sorry butt through the door of the Oval Office into the rose garden when I saw you. I would have gladly been arrested ... what a Benedict Arnold ... I am glad you were fired!!!"

Bolton was also accused of being a "globalist sellout" who is "disloyal to the President and loyal to the deep state." Howard-Browne has long been a proponent of conspiracy theories concerning a supposed "deep state" desperate to launch attacks against Trump, who he has compared to the Sylvester Stallone action hero character Rambo.

The preacher also claimed that Jesus Christ would have launched a violent attack on Bolton over the alleged betrayal.

"What Would Jesus Do? He would have made a whip and beat the crap out of him!!!!" Howard-Browne tweeted.

"Trump congratulates wrong state for Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl win":

 

 

Donald Trump was among the first to laud the Kansas City Chiefs in the wake of their 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl, taking to Twitter to congratulate the newly crowned NFL champions and the ‘Great State of Kansas’.

 

The only problem: the Chiefs are, and have always been, based in Kansas City, Missouri.

That man is so f-ing stupid, and so are the so-called 'pastors' who kiss his hugely oversize butt.

Train wreck waiting to happen if it hasn't happened already.

 

How is it that it is so obvious to us, and lots of others, but not to the GOP lick spittles? What are they waiting for? What will convince them?

They *are* convinced. They admitted the House proved their case; they admitted he did it; they admitted it was illegal. They just said they aren't going to remove him for it. It's not a question of proving anything anymore, it's a question of the Republicans simply saying 'F*** you, we don't care.'

And yet they're already saying that if Biden is elected, they'll be impeaching him immediately. 

Trumpism has completely broken US politics, and it will take them decades to recover from the damage he's done.

They are waiting until his dementia is so bad he is not fit to stand trial, especially as a witness against them.

 

They know that if he is charged with a crime that would see him in prison, he would flip faster than a burger patty at Mc Donalds.

That's bluster*. If Biden is elected (and hopefully, he won't be; hopefully it will be Sanders or Warren) they won't control the House, so they won't be able to impeach.

 

 

 

*Because of course it's bluster. It's what the Base want to hear and reality doesn't matter.

Everybody said the same thing of Trump's campaign rhetoric too. But yeah, without control of the House, any Impeachment attempt wouldn't get very far.

And on Biden: For America's sake I hope he doesn't get the nomination. He thinks all this can be swept under the carpet, and he can start working with the GOP in a bipartisan manner once elected. That shows a disturbing amount of ignorance about what the modern GOP has become.

It can't recover. It's broken beyond repair and they will become an industrialised version of a failed state with the various factions continually at war with each other. Think Somalia.

 

And I saw a broadcast from the BBC at the Iowa Democratic primary this morning and if any of those Dem candidates think they have what it takes to beat Trump they are as deluded as he is.

 

Every one of them is a no-hoper. Get ready for another 4 years.

I don't know if any Democrat can defeat Trump, but Trump can certainly defeat Trump. There are still many months to go until the election.
