We Live in Hysteric Times: What Trump’s Impeachment Really Means – “For a century and a half American political life has been the exclusive preserve of the duopoly of Democrats and Republicans, also known as the Evil Party and the Stupid Party. (If something is both Evil and Stupid, we call that “Bipartisan.”) But the familiar Evil-Stupid dichotomy doesn’t even begin to describe the descent into national dysfunction and galloping irrationality that characterizes the Trump impeachment hysteria.” – James George Jatras
That baleful presence of Hillary Clinton in the last two impeachments – “Someone on Twitter, some chick* who likes to show her boobs (with a gargantuan 264,000 Twitter following), not the person you’d expect to show brain-depth, has pointed out a pretty significant fact: The United States now has two Presidents impeached for embarrassing Hillary Clinton. Which is a brilliant connection no one’s noticed before.” – Monica Showalter
Trump-Tulsi 2020? – “Tulsi Gabbard voted “present” on impeachment. Is she running for president, or for Mike Pence’s job? I’m not sure what game she’s playing, but it’s an interesting one. She’s obviously not running to be the Democratic nominee—you simply cannot win the nomination in this cycle as a House member who voted “present” on impeachment. But she’s running for something.” – Jonathan V. Last
It depends on the meaning of the word ‘is’… – “I know there are countless people losing their minds today because Congress just impeached the President of the United States on charges they find incredibly flimsy. And there are plenty of talking heads saying that if a President can be impeached on such flimsy charges, that it ‘sets a very dangerous precedent.’ Well, technically this dangerous precedent was set more than 150 years ago; accusations against Andrew Johnson were appallingly flimsy, yet he was still impeached.” – Simon Black
The Day America Turned Bone Mean – “A new form of rabies virus-infected almost all of America on 19 March 2003. The moment of attack was announced by a squint-eyed little Texan on live TV from the White House. George W. Bush announced the pandemic when he inform us US forces were invading Iraq “to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger.” In the days that followed, dastardly carriers of the insidious disease like then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld raged out, bearing gritted teeth at an enemy that was no enemy at all.” – Phil Butler
Soros Group Has Given $1.5 Million To Organization Closely Linked To Fusion GPS – Chuck Ross – PERHAPS BARR AND DURHAM SHOULD GO AFTER HIM AS WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nordstream Sanctions a Sad Coda to U.S. Foreign Policy – “The U.S. crossed the Rubicon this week. And I’m not talking about the ridiculous impeachment of President Trump for doing his job. I’m talking about passing the NDAA with provisions to sanction ‘from hell’ anyone associated with completion of the Nordstream 2 pipeline. The U.S. is now openly dismissive as a matter of law any ally or partner who engages in economic activity it disapproves of.” – Tom Luango
A New Brexit Settlement? – “Boris Johnson has Trumped Britain. Widely reviled as an untrustworthy bumbler, he has won the biggest Tory majority in decades with a three-word campaign: ‘Get Brexit Done!’ There is much to be said.” – Radhika Desai
Gun Control Group Warns Of ‘A Rude Awakening’ Ahead For Virginia Gun Owners As Democrat Coup Attempt Morphs Into Open Warfare Upon Americans & The US Constitution – “Anti-Gunners Gunning For Mass Gun Confiscations Would Unleash Hell Upon America” – Stefan Stanford
Maryland Governor Hogan Provides Blueprint For Chicago Violence – “Hogan gets it. There is not much that the government can do to fix the dysfunctional black underclass culture that causes most of the violence in Baltimore. The Democrat liberal approach that has been tried over and over again has failed miserably. Simply pouring money into these failed soft behavioral modification programs has only exasperated the problem.” – Sheriff David Clarke, Ret.
Humanity’s Salvation Will Necessarily Look Like A Leap Into The Unknown – “If humanity is to turn away from its murderous, omnicidal, ecocidal, oppressive and exploitative trajectory, it will necessarily involve a sharp, drastic deviation from all its previous patterning. You would think that this would go without saying; obviously a drastic change in behavior will look drastically different from the behavior which preceded it. This is self-evident. Yet when you look at the arguments that people are making today, there’s almost universally a built-in assumption that humankind’s salvation will in some way involve a continuation of its previous patterning.” – Caitlin Johnstone
Cotton Kills – “Some fabrics have a property called wicking. This means they soak up moisture and move it away from your skin using what is called capillary action. Basically, water moves from wet areas of the fabric to dry areas. Cotton does not do that. It holds the sweat, rain, and whatever else right where it is. That moisture, when held against your skin, removes body heat through conduction. On top of all that, cotton loses its insulating properties when it gets wet.” – Jim Cobb – SOME GOOD THINGS TO CONSIDER, ESPECIALLY IN WINTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Final Act – “It is difficult to say what caused the confidence game to fail. It could be just the inexorable and ever-accelerating increase in US government debt. It could be the blatant decoupling between the growth rate of the US economy and the rate of increase of its indebtedness. It could also be the fact that much of the world is making a concerted effort to walk away from the US dollar as a reserve currency and as a means of exchange in international trade” – Club Orlov – LONG, BUT VERY GOOD ARTICLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
