#1 Projection indeed. Dims are throwing everything against the wall and hoping something will stick. They have been trying to get the Roadrunner since before he was elected. Nothing has stuck yet.

#2 You could fill an Introductory Psychology textbook with examples from this Shitshow's ringmasters: Projection. Confirmation bias. Cognitive conformity. Self-serving bias. etc etc

#3 I really don't think the Dems have thought this through, or if they have they don't like Hillary and Obama much.

#4 These projectors seem to forget that things that don't stick to the wall tend to bounce back to the one who threw it.


I'm starting to seriously wonder when the first shots will be fired when the cold civil war turns hot.

apologies to Steve Scalise.

#5 The nice thing about this Democratic obsession with impeaching the president is that it keeps them from organizing any massive, society-changing legislation, or even talking much about it beyond presidential candidate stump speeches.

#6 They talk as if half a billion dollars given to corrupt Ukrainian politicians would keep Putin from rolling his tanks into Western Europe. Without cooperation from the main stream media, they would be laughed out of town such a ridiculous claim.

#7 I appreciate your optimism, tw.

But what's going to happen when Trump's re-elected?

What will happen when the wall is finished and the illegals are deported?

What will happen when Trump nominates Gibsberg's replacement?

Will we still have peace in this country?

#9 They cannot proved any of this. However there is lots of proof that Obama did this with his millions to Iran. John Fkin Kerry did this by consulting with Iran. Do they really want to redefine Treason this way?

#10 Careful what you wish for, Anti-Trumpers.

#11 Lex, what happens depends upon the scale of the victory.
* Big victory and the universities will go nuts but the rest of the nation will go about their business.
* Squeaking victory and it could be bad as we'll see lots of bogus claims of stole the election and challenges to vote counts.

#12 Right, good call RJ.

Let's make it a big win.
GOTV. All hands on deck. Get busy.

#13 Dems have so much sunk cost in this political approach of hamstringing an administrationt hostile to their wants, that they have to continue in the hopes that if they keep it up, they won't be blown out next November. They have to win, else many will be facing federal charges. While I don't generally put a lot of credence in Infowars, I fully agree with their reporter's rant at Nadler in today's session that he is guilty of treason.

#14 Nadler was starting to turn hot and bothered in some of the initial question -- IT just isn't fun when the Republican Minority use the same disruptive tactics that YOU used in the past, is it? I was starting to wonder what his blood pressure was.

#15 I appreciate your optimism, tw.

I trust completely that you less optimistic types will figure things out and fix them before it occurs to me to notice, Lex dear. Or that it won’t be nearly as dire as you can imagine, because while many people happily talk shit, most won’t bestir themselves to make it happen, even the few who actually have the skills. And of those who do have the skills, the most deadly are generally quiet about it when among civilians, but y’all recognize each other, I believe — and while some of the more radical on the left have indeed been getting shooting and other training, there is a huge difference between being a trained terrorist on one hand and trained soldiers fighting a war with unbound hands on the other hand. The trained soldiers are at least 3:1 on our side, based on historic voting records, and probably even more so among those who chose to serve at the tip of the spear, contra that smarmy little Communist idiot who graduated from West Point a few years ago, then disappeared from sight.

#16 Over at Maggie's Farm it was suggested that the treason charge was a poison pill, to give Democrats from purple districts a plausible reason to vote against it. I think the leaders know it's not going to make it through the Senate. If their goal is to cripple Trump's administration with accusations and legal maneuvering, bringing things to trial isn't that important--just so they can keep their voters satisfied that they are fighting the good fight.
