Donald’s sanity (or lack of” is finally being talked about,openly,I have said that as soon he is seen as a liability to the R’s,they would dump him.We are getting closer all the time
Beatlex

I think you’re right. Trump’s disgusting, racist, dictatorial way is forcing more Repubs to oppose him.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Hi Ad,I still have trouble describing the President.There is to much to say,if you know what I mean
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Yep B, no matter how many insults you use too accurately describe him, you’re leaving something out.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Superlatives are not enough.We all know that he is a mental case,hoe much new can be said?
Beatlex

3 hours ago
So true!
AdLib 3 hours ago
It may seem petty…but…Donald never truly thought that he would win,and have his Russian ties exposed.I hope he ends up in jail.Or at least ruined
Beatlex

3 hours ago
He does think though that he can use his power to kill any investigations.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Which is nutty thinking Ad,His lawyers surely know it
Beatlex

3 hours ago
He’s trying to destroy the US.
AdLib 3 hours ago
I think the Generals he has in charge are a godsend,I am trusting them to keep him in check with that file.What do you think Ad?
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Agreed!
AdLib 2 hours ago
I am mourning….Gorka is out at the WH. And I am celebrating….Sheriff Joe has been pardoned! Or I would be if I was in bizarro world! Which is Trump’s presidency.

Sarah Sanders .Spokesperson for Trump.Lies like it is natural.I think that Sean Spicer could not handle it.His career is over(credibility wise) Why are these people ruining themselfs?

Hi all!

ZZZZ!

Sanders has developed the finely honed skill of saying nothing in many words.

Hi Beatle. Hi PPO. Hi Ad. Hi Me.

Is the USA ready for Harvey?
pinkpantheroz

Beatle…it is anybody’s guess…I think it all depends on Mueller.
MurphTheSurf3

Z-the elections are in Nov,it might take some time to unwind!
Beatlex

PPO…..Ready….never for a storm this size.
MurphTheSurf3

Well, I hope those millins of FEMA jobs Trump…. oh forget it.

Hey PPO and Murph!

I really must start sucking up to Trump. So when I rob a bank, I
pinkpantheroz

‘ll get a pardon!

hey Ad!
pinkpantheroz

I can hardly wait for Donald’s inevetible downfall.What form it will take is an open Q.He may even resign before the alligators pounce.It would be a futile effort,IMO.He is in Mueller’s clutches now.Patience my friends

Sanders says nothing in pressers except, “his word she speak for themselves” and “I haven’t talked to the president about that”. All that matters now are the questions.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Do you think Trump will pardon everyone from his campaign before any are charged?
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad….I do……but that could be seen as obstruction of justice…..and that brings on the 25th or Impeachment.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
YES AD! But he cannot pardon himself.And lets face it,if it goes that far he is done anyway
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Beatlex, I think Trump’s downfall and impeachment is in process,it will be a long process as he continues to alienate Repubs and prove further how unfit he is. If Dems can take back a house of Congress, I think Repubs will be pushed more to take Trump down before 2020.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Yes Ad,A lot can happen in between.Trump won’t go silently into the night
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Murph – I see Trump beligerently and ignorantly pardoning helter skelter thinking he can get away with anything, including pardoning himself. He’s in for a big surprise.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Beatlex – I can imagine Trump calling for an insurrection against the United States to prevent an impeachment conviction from removing him.
AdLib 2 hours ago
And the Mexicans will pay for it Ad!!!!
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Beatlex – Only if Trump tries to escape to Mexico to avoid prison.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Er, where are all the Checks and Balances that are supposed to prevent batshit crap like this? Quis Custodat Custodes (Apt quote, dontcha think?)
pinkpantheroz

2 hours ago
And what an asshole Trump is to exploit the hurricane to try and bury his Arpaio pardon. Lower than scum.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Well, Harvey’s incoming. Now we’ll see (yeah right) the caliber of POTUS and his cronies.
pinkpantheroz

2 hours ago
It all has a surreal feel to it.He said what? He did what??
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Pardoned Arpaio on fri nite
pinkpantheroz

2 hours ago
PPO – There are checks and balances for lots of things the president tries to do but not in pardons.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad, ah well, Shouldn’t be surprised, I suppose. He’s flouted almost every convention. How many are left? Sickening
pinkpantheroz

coffee brb
pinkpantheroz

Trump is a heartless coward, hiding his crap behind a hurricane
AdLib 2 hours ago
PPO – Nope,not surprised, just further disgusted.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Trump WILL get his! Count on it guys!
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Pundits keep whining that Dems have no agenda,no leader and can’t just run as against Trump. That’s a load of BS. Repubs ran in 2010 against the ACA. Dems will win just running to stop Trump. An agenda would be better but not necessary in a mid term.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Beatlex – This is all unfolding as many predicted and the end result of kicking Trump out of the WH seems inevitable.
AdLib 2 hours ago
hey guys!
Harleigh

2 hours ago
Hey Harleigh! Been pardoned today?
AdLib 2 hours ago
The Trump slogan for 2020: “I beg your pardon”.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Had to step out. I see that Jenuwin and Harleigh have joined us.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Hi Jenuwin!
AdLib 2 hours ago
Yep! and I read he can actually pardon all cohorts in advance. the wheels have fallin off.
Harleigh

2 hours ago
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Harleigh…yes he can.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Hi Ad Lib !
Jenuwin

2 hours ago
Harleigh – But as Murph mentioned, it could only build a stronger case against Trump for Obstruction of Justice.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Hi Ad Lib!
Jenuwin

2 hours ago
Thanks for the tunes, Beatlex!
AdLib 2 hours ago
Who here thinks Trump will last until the end of his term?
AdLib 2 hours ago
yeah and a pardon from Pence unless he goes down too…. they are all involved.
Harleigh

2 hours ago
Not I
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Ad….I certainly do not…..the man’s capacity for outrage in the future and the path of destruction in his wake seems to guarantee that a critical mass of revulsion will be reached sooner than later.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Pence may learn from history that Ford pardoning Nixon destroyed him politically.
AdLib 2 hours ago
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
He knows he will never be elected to anything ever again.
Harleigh

2 hours ago
The news week story presents the results of voter pattern studies and reports that 20 percent of the Sanders vote did not vote for Clinton….8 percent voted for Trump and 12 percent did not vote at all.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Murph – I think Trump’s overt bigotry will lay the foundation for Repubs turning against him for impeachment.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad…..one of the many nasty pathways revealed by his slime trail.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Ad,Either that or his criminal money ties to Putin
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Mueller has 16 agents all this time and has added as he went along. This oughta be good.
Harleigh

2 hours ago
Murph – Not that surprising, we knew all along that Sanders attracted voters who were indies, not Dems. Disappointed in those attacking Bernie and Dems who supported him. Bernie brought voters from outside the Dem party to him. No surprise they voted or didn’t vote as they did.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Harleigh….and on top of those agents he has a stable of trial lawyers, many specializing in financial crimes.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
He’s fucked,lets just agree on that,LOL
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Hurricane Trumpzilla can’t come soon enough
pinkpantheroz

2 hours ago
I wouldn’t mind though if Mueller leaked that pardons would increase the odds of Trump being indicted for obstruction.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad…that may not be a surprise but I regard the behavior as suicidal. It was clear to me….if you did not want Trump, you had to vote for CLinton. Any other action strengthened Trump. The GOP tend to understand this.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
I don’t know if Mueller can get all IRS records and filings?
Harleigh

2 hours ago
Trump may launch nukes at NK so he can sneak his pardons of his campaign people.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad…Trump cannot be indicted as long as he is president.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
They don’t need leaks Ad! He is toast anyway
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Harleigh…Mueller can, and probably has, get all of those records.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Murph – mueller could release findings of criminality to get Trump impeached then once Trump’s out, could pursue many criminal indictments against him.
AdLib 2 hours ago
That means a fast Pence pardon….
Harleigh

2 hours ago
Ad…that he could do…as long as he holds onto his position.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Harleigh…the Ford gambit.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Semantics,Trump is up to his neck in alligators,and he is not coming out unscathed…
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Our long national nightmare is over. Part Deux!
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Harleigh – Pence has been lying as well, he might also be impeached.
AdLib 2 hours ago
yep and Ford could never have been pres on his own…. he was done.
Harleigh

2 hours ago
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Ford would have been far better than Carter.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Murph – If Mueller gets indictments,no one’s going to shut him down until he’s finished. BTW, he isn’t the prosecutor, DoJ is.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Pence is part of the whole deal… starting with Flynn.
Harleigh

2 hours ago
Ad….yes, but Trump will move to dump him before that happens.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Waiting for impeachment has to be one of the most soul destroying activites on the planet right now.
pinkpantheroz

2 hours ago
PPO….well said.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Murph – It will be too late to dump Mueller after indictments hit their marks.
AdLib 2 hours ago
TRUMP IS TOAST! OKAY?
Beatlex

2 hours ago
PPO – What will come first is helping Dems win back House or Senate in 2018.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Which is why I think he will move to get him out the door before that happens…thus the efforts in Congress to make a dismissal far more difficult. Let’s see if the GOP get on board.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
congress lready said if Dolt45 fired him he would be under their investigation special council or whatever.
Harleigh

an hour ago
Will it actually take that long, Ad? Can we stand it?
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Beatlex. – I do think it’s inevitable. What pol will stick their neck out for Trump by next year?
AdLib an hour ago
hahaha
Harleigh

an hour ago
Here is one for you all….can a President Pardon Himself?
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Murph, no
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Don’t remember any precident for that.
Harleigh

an hour ago
Murph – It’s not definitive but most Constitutional scholars say no. That’s not what the Founders intended pardons be used for. Just the opposite.
AdLib an hour ago
Under the fundamental rule that no one may be a judge in his own case, the President cannot pardon himself
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Memo to Nixon!
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
We’ll put, PPO. Pardons were intended for the Pres to use in cases of extreme wrongs of others or as a tool to promote peace if a conviction creates political upheaval. But always of others, not to oneself.
AdLib an hour ago
Ad and PPO….I think he may well try it as a delaying tactic if nothing else.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Nixon explored the possibility of self-pardon but his lawyers weren’t confident it would work.
AdLib an hour ago
Time to go check corpus christi. This is going to be a killer storm.
Harleigh

an hour ago
Murph – A president who could pardon himself would nullify the Constitutional power of impeachment. I think it’s a loser.
AdLib an hour ago
Well….everytime we say he would not dare. He does.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Agreed Murph but it is a loser like Trump.
AdLib an hour ago
Harleigh – Last word is that the eye misses Corpus Christie.
AdLib an hour ago
If anyone has relatives in Harvey’s path, god bless them and keep them safe
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
I thought he was Gov of NJ. What’s he doing in TX?
AdLib an hour ago
I have a sister in Houston and she says the flooding will be record setting and devastating.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Murph – I have family in Houston too. Some feel safe, others who have been flooded before are evacuated.
AdLib an hour ago
eye missed but whatever gets that 12 foot surge with 5 in per hour rain and 135 Cat4 wind…. is gonna die
Harleigh

an hour ago
30 inches of rain?! That’s enormous! Half of their rain total last year.
AdLib an hour ago
Harleigh. – I heard it hit uninhabited shore front.
AdLib an hour ago
The storm is going to stall and dump 35 – 40 inches! Rescue is gonna ttake awhile
Harleigh

an hour ago
Cronyn and Cruz voted against hurricane aid for NJ. Now? They want billions for TX.
AdLib an hour ago
Well folks if you PARDON ME I need to take leave…but this has been fun.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
NO BAILOUT! I read most folks are not insured.
Harleigh

an hour ago
later murph. I’m gone too! later!
Harleigh

an hour ago
See ya next Friday. Murph!
AdLib an hour ago
Bye Harleigh!
AdLib an hour ago
As I am leaving I am noticing that the typing has gotten very slow.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Working fine for me Murph. Anyone else notice that?
AdLib an hour ago
Could be my connection.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Vix uses a little memory on computers. Could be that
AdLib an hour ago
Vox, that is!
AdLib an hour ago
Sorry, folks, have been in and out. Gotta go. Better next week. Promise!!
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
See ya PPO!
AdLib an hour ago
First time this has happened so it might be a one off. Well, we will see next week.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Weird! I blame Trump!
AdLib an hour ago
Hah! Thanks Trump!
MurphTheSurf3

G’night.
