One million species are now threatened with extinction. Stocks are tumbling around the world. Donald Trump is sending bombers to Iran. North Korea is testing missiles, cutting rations, and after Trump’s poor execution of the Hanoi Summit are well executing some flunkeys... How was your weekend?
Buck up. David Waldman is here this morning to brighten our day and illuminate our mind, while Greg Dworkin brings the coffee and impeachment pie. Leonard Pitts, Jr. once gave impeachment strawberries, but no more. 45 years after Watergate, Nancy Pelosi leads the House Democrats down that same path. If Congress does not act to preserve its powers, it will make itself forever subservient (which was always the first priority of Donald Trump’s 6 year plan).
Speaking of contumacious reprobates, Steven Mnuchin doesn’t quite get what “shall furnish” means, and he is past due for a lesson. As for those wanting to lock them up, note that the “Capitol jail down in the basement” is a myth, however a janitor’s closet with a mop handle wedged under the knob really should suffice.
Or, you could just skip the effort and have Joe Biden fix it. Biden is the one to beat, on both sides of the aisle. Or, maybe 90% of the Republican party will finally realize the error of their ways, and... A group running robocalls impersonating Trump's campaign has already raised more than $100,000. The IRS commissioner charged with releasing Trump’s tax returns earns as much as $1 million in rental income from Trump properties. Erik Prince is more rich and powerful than ever before. James O’Keefe is an idiot, but still makes a living off of Trumpists… but then again, so is Trump.
“America First” may be the last hope for these cattle ranchers.
