Right, so possibly homeless - but only as result of closing his business and moving to Washington to protest Trump.

Shooting at the Republican GOP baseball team practice, one of the victims (in critical condition) is the GOP House Whip.

 

Indications would make it appear to be an adamant anti-Trump lone gunman.

 

I believe something like this will actually result in a swell of Republican and Trump support.

 

 

 

 

Wonder if he will be so keen on opposing gun control any longer??

 

 

 

 

They'll just keep spouting that they need more guns to stop gun violence, if the dudes that got shot were armed and not just the cops they could have all fought back.

At the end of World War II, pundits and social scientists had difficulty understanding how the German nation - basically an intelligent and industrious people -could have fallen under the control of a madman like Adolf Hitler.

 

In another 70 years, if there's anyone on the planet left alive, they won't be wondering how it could have happened again, because the black comedy that's beginning with the dissolution of American culture is being fully documented.

 

Much though I'd like to, I can't blame the GOP puppet for the chaos that's looming. It's the Republicans who've empowered - and continue to support - Adolf II.





Any fool can make money, but it takes a special person to earn the respect of respectable people.


Lock him up!

And those caught in the crossfire could also experience the thrill of armed violence.

If the republicans are admitting Russia interfered with the US election, and put in a clause that Trump can't over-turn it, I'd say it's another bad day in Trumpville.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40278569

"US senators have voted overwhelmingly to impose fresh sanctions on Russia over its alleged interference in last year's election.

They also agreed, by 97-2, to set up a process by which Congress can block any attempt by President Trump to scale back those sanctions.

The legislation was filed as an amendment to an Iran sanctions bill.

It comes amid concerns that members of Mr Trump's campaign team colluded with Russia over the election.

President Trump and Moscow have always denied any collusion.

A number of investigations into the allegations have been opened in Washington, including a justice department probe led by former FBI director Robert Mueller"

From Paris to London, it only ever gets worse with Trump

 

This article was first published in the June 17, 2017 issue of the New Zealand Listener.

 

 

International ridicule

 

Since Trump’s earliest forays into politics in the 1980s, his core message hasn’t changed: America is failing; the rest of the world is laughing at us and taking advantage of us; I will make America great again. In fact, the exact opposite was and is true: under Obama, America regained the respect of the international community that was squandered in Iraq; Trump’s election has placed the US in the hands of deplorables and extremists, thereby stunning and dismaying the rest of the world, with a few notable exceptions; his conduct in office has made the US an object of international ridicule and threatens to transform the world’s most powerful nation into a rogue state bereft of common decency and indifferent to our shared humanity and aspirations. America has been great for a long time, but now there’s something rotten in the District of Columbia.

That seems likely but it's not exactly clear yet. CNN adds a bit more. He had been terminated from similar contracting roles:

I wonder who closed his Facebook profiles afterwards. Probably police.

Trump's twitter-fingers are on fire this morning.

 

This is called "whataboutism" - a tactic routinely used by the Kremlin.

 

He's also bleating about being the victim of a "witch hunt" - which is exactly what Nixon said.

Washington Post - Trump is now under investigation, and he has no one to blame but himself

 


THE MORNING PLUM:

 

The Post is reporting that President Trump is now personally under investigation by the special counsel for possible obstruction of justice, and this morning, Trump is in full meltdown-martyr mode over it. ...

Putin is also poking the borax at Trump - has made a comment that if Comey is subjected to "persecution", then he's welcome in Russia - would be granted asylum.

 

Oh - and Qatar - the "rogue" Gulf State said by Trump to be supporting terror?  

 

Yesterday, Washington signed off on a deal to sell $12 billion worth of F15 fighter jets to Qatar.

 

The remarkable thing about the clusterF$#% that is the Trump presidency and administration, is that many core GOP supporters seem to think that Trump is being "clever", outsmarting Putin, playing some global geopolitical tricks that are so far ahead of the game, and we're all idiots for not understanding that.
