Vox Populi, our weekly live chat about the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PDT. Hope to see you then! AdLib 4 hours ago

hey PPO! AdLib an hour ago

see u soon, Ad pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Holy windfarms, Batman! Did that Danish Lady shade Brokeahontas or what? Epic! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

AdLib an hour ago

So many references in one sentance! AdLib an hour ago

Well, one Koch less. No Ts or Ps there. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

2 Kochs – 1 Koch = Satan AdLib an hour ago

1 Koch + Drumpf = Lucifer pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph! How are you this week? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO….did you spend a while creating that wonderful trope? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

That is called New Koch Math. AdLib an hour ago

As opposed to Classic Koch. AdLib an hour ago

Sorry, Mutph, what’s a trope? I just thought it as I was typing pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO…good….I have met my revenue goal for the summer three weeks early…….if the fall is as good I will be a happy farmer. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

One of the few, I’m betting, M! Good for you pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Trope….a figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Good for you, Murph! Let the pro-Trump farmers scratch their heads as they’re foreclosed on. AdLib an hour ago

Riiigght, M! It just comes out nopw and again pinkpantheroz an hour ago

So, can we agree that Trump has clearly lost his tiny mind this week? AdLib an hour ago

Trump thought it was called Greedland and said, “I have to have it!” AdLib an hour ago

No doubt about it, Ad, but we know little if anything will be done. Dangerous, IMO to leave it to election time. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

As I shared with Ad….two of my regular competitors….have fallen victim to water table pollution because a local tannery has stopped abiding by the agreement made during the Obama years…….and, wait for it, the Trump admn has no interest in enforcing it. Both guys are Trumpeteers. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad….he is expressing how lost his mind has been for a considerable time….what’s that song called: “Pressure!” MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

And so impeachment momentum could really snowball, witnessing Trump out of control and going mad. “The Chosen One”? Attacking Jews, POC, the Fed Chairman and Denmark? He’s lost it! AdLib an hour ago

I feel bad, Murph, not for those bozos, but that the water table has been compromised pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO…with you on that….. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad…I think that the Impeachment inquiry will take on added urgency and so will talk of the 25th MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Trump denied he would build a \hotel in Greenland if he bought the place, which means, of course……… pinkpantheroz an hour ago

But Trump’s madness has no been weaponized against the economy. It wasn’t enough for Repubs that he was committing war crimes against immigrants or supporting neo Nazi mass murderers. But now that their money is involved, that matters to them. AdLib an hour ago

glenn! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey there Glenn MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murrph – Agreed though the 25th Amendment is pointless because Trump has only butt kissers in his cabinet. AdLib an hour ago

Hi glenn! AdLib an hour ago

Evenin’ gents. Murph, congrats on meeting your goals! glenn an hour ago

I can’t wait to see Trump’s “empire” crumble to the ground after he loses in 2020…and the criminal indictments pile up. AdLib an hour ago

Ad….I generally agree but if Trump is seen as a ghost ship sailing out into the haunted Sargossa….the GOP backers will lower the boats and row away……at that point the crew (i.e. the GOP pols) may suddently discover their desire to right the course of the ship of state by walking the captain off the plank. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Thanks Glenn MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

But I wonder if Trump will try to remain the king of the GOP even after he is defeated. The good side of that is that the GOP will be tied to a madman who is a loser and a criminal. AdLib an hour ago

KAmala Harris ‘borrowed’ an observation of mine that Trump is like a blowfish. Not many people know that blowfish secrete a deadly poison on their skins , but that dolphins lick it to get high! Sounds like a lot of Trump Arse-lickers doesn’t it? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Trump’s pain will be our gain. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO…..so you and Kamala are pals? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

I’m just shaking my head this week. There’s nothing else I can do. I cannot believe that 40% of the American public supports the TLB, nor can I believe that republicans in congress are so silent about all the madness that has gone on this week. The TLB is just falling apart before our very eyes, yet…crickets. The only ones speaking out against him are the people who can’t do anything. And I’m so disappointed in Pelosi; in fact I’m mad. The first thing she should be doing when she gets back to DC is beginning impeachment proceedings. glenn an hour ago

Murph, no one ever went broke betting on the GOP to choose the most offensive and divisive paths available. No way the GOP will steer towards a moderate direction, their base is now the dregs of humanity, they would never support it. The days of a Jeb Bush winning the base’s votes is long over. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–OMG! Blowfish describes the TLB and his arse-lickers perfectly! glenn an hour ago

PPO – I really like that allegory! Though instead of licks, I would say Trump’s followers suck. AdLib an hour ago

Murph–I hope the TLB’s pain is severe! glenn an hour ago

Murph, the USS Delerium Tremens will be taken out and sunk in the Marianas Trench, but its legacy will stain the GOP forever. Any time they say or do anything outrageous, just shout ‘Trump! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Glenn…I expect Pelosi to take the tack of “I am the Speaker of the House, and the Speaker, above all, represents it will and that is what I intend to do as we move resolutely and with proper care into the impeachment process.” MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO….boy you are hot tonight….USS Delerium Tremens….shiver me timbers! MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

‘blush’ pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – The latest AP poll…Trump is down to 36% support. I don’t know how much lower he can go, not below 30% with his cult members blindly approving everything about him but 36% a year before the election…with the economy slowing, is not a good place to be. AdLib an hour ago

Isn’t it interesting how McConnell wrote a rare editorial…asking Dems to support the filibuster. Hmm…wondering if he thinks he and Repubs may need it? AdLib an hour ago

PPO–I do not EVER want to hear a republican criticize a Democratic president EVER again! Not on executive orders; not on the deficit; not on the debt; not on tariffs; not on foreign policy; they have NOTHING with which to criticize a Democratic president, considering they have been either complicit or silent during the TLB’s shattering of all those things. glenn an hour ago

Murph, like your slow-witted neighbors, I feel the tide against Trump is slowly breaching the delusional levies they/ve erected. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

right on, g! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – I hope you’re right. Pelosi’s blockade of impeachment is looking worse and worse for her though. As Trump does more and more destruction, her protection of him from impeachment looks unprincipled. AdLib an hour ago

Murph–Yeah, that’s what I expect her to do, also. Do you still think the impeachment process should be slow? glenn 44 minutes ago

I second that, PPO is on a roll tonight! Very clever stuff! AdLib 44 minutes ago

Ad–Unprincipled, indeed. WHY is she protecting him? glenn 43 minutes ago

McConnell…two face asshat…..that editorial tells the Dems that had they not changed the rules for confirming judges then the problem they are having with Trump’s appointments would be far less severe. BS….:McConnell would have changed to rules had they not already been changed. MurphTheSurf3 43 minutes ago

too kind, Ad. pinkpantheroz 43 minutes ago

glenn – If only that would be the case but such compulsive hypocrites have no shame. I guarantee that after the Dems take back the WH, they will be howling as a choir about how awful the deficit is and how everything but defense must be cut. AdLib 43 minutes ago

PPO–Let me add my compliments to Murph’s and Ad’s. You are indeed a clever lad tonight, much more than usual! glenn 42 minutes ago

There are now four committees in the House persuing impeachment or impeachment related issues….yeah, she is providing the staging platorm for the big play. MurphTheSurf3 42 minutes ago

I’d love to take credit, but it really just happens out of nowhere. pinkpantheroz 41 minutes ago

Ad–And every time a repub howls, a Dem should be bringing up the TLB’s numbers; tweets; and downright criminality. Every. Single. Time! glenn 41 minutes ago

glenn – She and her close aides have explained it. Pelosi worries that making the Dems in red distriicts vote for impeachment imperils their re-election. But that excuse is not acceptable when a madman is running through our house setting everything on fire. AdLib 41 minutes ago

PPO…are you suggestion that divine inspiration is at work? MurphTheSurf3 40 minutes ago

Murph, that’s what I understand. Pelosi can say that the wheels are turning. pinkpantheroz 40 minutes ago

Divine, definitely not, M! Divilish, perhaps! pinkpantheroz 40 minutes ago

PPO ….. and she can say that she is respecting due process in ways her GOP counterparts never have. MurphTheSurf3 40 minutes ago

Ad, what can you do if the GOP won’t allow yoou to plug in the hoses? pinkpantheroz 39 minutes ago

Murph–hopefully, Pelosi gets the stage hands moving quickly. Every day, the TLB destroys more and more of our government. glenn 39 minutes ago

Murph – Agreed, if McConnell is talking or writing, he’s lying. Dems got rid of the filibuster for judicial appointments because McConnell had shut them down. When Trump was elected, McConnell immediately threw out filibusters on SCOTUS nd caabinet positions. Who believes he wouldn’t have done that anyway? AdLib 39 minutes ago

Ad–you know, I can kinda see that argument. However, if the Dems are in solid red districts, it probably doesn’t matter, does it? So, instead of worrying about your re-election chances, worry about your principles and vote to restore sanity to our country! glenn 38 minutes ago

Why, Oh, why has no one called the bugger out on his sadistic ‘fun’ gutting more of the ACA? pinkpantheroz 37 minutes ago

PPO–You stomp out the fire! glenn 37 minutes ago

PPO–so the devil made you say it? glenn 37 minutes ago

glenn, Muhahahahahaah! pinkpantheroz 36 minutes ago

Murph – Again, I hope you’re right. But what Pelosi could also be doing is allowing these investigations to let Dem voters blow off steam. Instead of declaring an actual impeachment inquiry, they are just saying that a regular committee inquiry IS an impeachment inquiry. Then why not declare exactly that? I think it’s possible that as Trump becomes more unglued, Pelosi will be less likely to allow impeachment, seeing a vidtory in a year more likely and not wanting to rock the boat. AdLib 36 minutes ago

Ad….I trust her sense of timing…… MurphTheSurf3 34 minutes ago

Murph–yeah, and with the worry about RBG’s health, the lying turtle could get one more justice on SCOTUS. glenn 34 minutes ago

glenn – Dems need to tar all Repubs for decades as Trump-infected rodents. Every Repub needs Trump’s disgustingness and insanity nailed on their forehead. AdLib 34 minutes ago

Glenn and if he does then I favor expanding the court to 15! MurphTheSurf3 33 minutes ago

PPO – Arsonnists are the least likely folks to agree to putting out a fire. AdLib 33 minutes ago

Ad, maybe if Pelosi keeps mentioning the inquiries, as you say, Trump will finally implode. I’d buy tickets to be in the room when he finally descends into total madness. pinkpantheroz 32 minutes ago

Ad–Call me one of those Dem voters wanting to blow off steam! The problem with patience is that the TLB is going to gut environmental regulations, tank our economy, and worst case scenario, get another justice on SCOTUS. I hope RBG can hang in there. glenn 32 minutes ago

I agree with all of you. Worried abut Notorious RBG, thaough. What a woman! pinkpantheroz 32 minutes ago

Murph–maybe up until this past week, I trusted her sense of timing. But the TLB is more and more unhinged and there’s no telling what damage he can do to our country in that time. Because he is a cornered rat right now and lashing out everywhere. glenn 30 minutes ago

glenn – In my new post, I embedded a video from a top political scientist who states that the Dems who won in red districts, won because Dem base voters were energized and turned out in greater numbers, NOT because Repubs voted for them. So those Dems are not in danger if they vote to impeach, they may win by bigger margins in 2020. AdLib 30 minutes ago

in 2018 that is. AdLib 30 minutes ago

Brilliant Twitter entry: pinkpantheroz 29 minutes ago

Ad–You betcha! Nail that “H” for hypocrisy to their foreheads every time they complain about the next Democratic president! glenn 29 minutes ago

So #DavidKochAndJefferyEpstein walk into a bar in hell. Epstien says, “hey did you hear that #DonaldTrump was anointed ‘the chosen one,’ by your religion?” Koch says, “no, but I did hear that he is the #KingOfTheJews.” Both stop and realize they are in hell. pinkpantheroz 29 minutes ago

The thing is Glenn….Pelosi believes, as do I, that it articles of impeachment, if they are to be seen as more than a partisan ploy, have to be so sharp, and so plausible that they public support for passing those articles carries them forward and beyond the reach of the “just partisanship” argument. MurphTheSurf3 28 minutes ago

Murph–I’m sure you or Ad has answered this question before, but what does it take to expand the court? Do both houses of Congress have to agree, or is it up to the Senate only? glenn 28 minutes ago

The size of the court is estsblished by legislation…… MurphTheSurf3 28 minutes ago

glenn – I was very worried about RBG. And we all know that if she was to leave in 2020, McConnell wouldn’t wait a second to replace her and laugh at how he blocked Garland with total BS. AdLib 27 minutes ago

Ad–agreed. And, what better way to energize Dem voters than to stand up for principles. I think Pelosi is skating on thin ice with that excuse. glenn 27 minutes ago

Ad, McConnell’s got to go pinkpantheroz 27 minutes ago

PPO – Trump isn’t already collapsed into total madness? Greenland? AdLib 26 minutes ago

For McConnell to go the Dems have to take the Senate….no small trick…the worse the GOP looks as a party the more likely that will be. MurphTheSurf3 26 minutes ago

Ad–I know. That’s what scares me. The turtle has already packed the courts and will relish the chance to pack them even more. glenn 26 minutes ago

Ad, apparently not quite enough for the men in white coats. Sigh! pinkpantheroz 25 minutes ago

The Greenland idea seems to have come from Tom Cotton. MurphTheSurf3 25 minutes ago

glenn – Exactly. By stalling the impeachment inquiry, I’m not even talking about impeachment hearings, Pelosi has her fingerprints on every disaster Trump creates. AdLib 25 minutes ago

Murph So Trump was out of his Cotton-picking mind? AdLib 24 minutes ago

Oooooh, good oune, ad! pinkpantheroz 24 minutes ago

I know a judge who says that the court packing has many of his colleagues, all GOP, all conservative, very disturbed because the quality of the jurists is suspect as is the process. There is worry that there will be a case for judicial impeachments like never before. MurphTheSurf3 24 minutes ago

Murph – Glad to hear that, I think the SCOTUS needs to be expanded in any case to take back the seat that was stolen. Theft is theft, it must be returned. AdLib 23 minutes ago

PPO – Very funny! AdLib 23 minutes ago

Maybe Koch and Epstein are in Hell and looking around, “Well, it sure beats the White House.” AdLib 22 minutes ago

I agree, Murph, that articles of impeachment are a serious inquiry. However, I think the TLB has done enough to warrant serious impeachment proceedings. I know I’m a partisan, but his crimes have gone beyond partisanship, IMO. I can’t understand why he is still president. People are saying, “what if Obama had done what the TLB has done?” What they should be saying is, “What if ANY other president, republican or Democratic had done what the TLB has done?” It is beyond partisanship at this point. glenn 22 minutes ago

The constitution establishes that there shall be a SCOTUS and that it will have a Chief Justice. The rest has been developed across time by the Exec in concert with the Legislature. MurphTheSurf3 21 minutes ago

Ad–oh good one! glenn 21 minutes ago

Glenn…you do not need convincing but the general public is still not waving the impeachment flag. MurphTheSurf3 21 minutes ago

Raw Story reports: New poll shows Republicans may get wiped out — in Mitch McConnell’s home state of Kentucky Hee Hee! pinkpantheroz 20 minutes ago

Murph–not to be nit picky, but does the “legislature” mean both houses of Congress. glenn 20 minutes ago

Glenn….it does. MurphTheSurf3 20 minutes ago

Murph – I never bought that excuse from Pelosi. Who would see it as political to impeach Trump for proven crimes that Mueller documented? Dems? Indies? Only the slimy Repubs who will say that anyway. I don’t buy that excuse from her, I believe what she said that makes sense, that she wants Dems to keep the house and worries that rocking the boat for red district Dems is too worrisome. AdLib 20 minutes ago

Murph–I just can’t understand why. What am I missing? glenn 20 minutes ago

Thanks, Murph glenn 20 minutes ago

PPO–Hee hee is right! glenn 19 minutes ago

Ad..she sees the necessity of momentum from the public…that is what I think….clearest example was the ACA… MurphTheSurf3 19 minutes ago

glenn – Both houses have to pass an increase to the SCOTUS size and the president has to sign it. It would just be a new law. AdLib 19 minutes ago

Ad–thanks. glenn 18 minutes ago

And the legislature with the president can set terms of office for judges….that will be trickier but also necessary. MurphTheSurf3 18 minutes ago

glenn – Absolutely, just the opposite is true too. Pelosi has been discouraging and frustrating the Dem base by protecting Trump from impeachment. As many have said, that’s not what they voted Dems in power to do, protect Trump. They want to see them protect America and our constitution. AdLib 17 minutes ago

Murph–We also need term limits for Congress. glenn 17 minutes ago

I think McConnell could lose his seat. He no doubt has all kinds of dirty tricks in store for his re-election but he is the most disliked Senator in the nation and as Trump implodes, it rains down all over McConnell. AdLib 16 minutes ago

Ad–exactly. That’s why we had a blue wave in 2018. We need a blue tsunami in 2020 so we can not only hold the House, but gain the Senate as well as the presidency. glenn 16 minutes ago

Maybe this is why TLB has gone apeshit this week: The motion included a letter from Neal to Mnuchin revealing that the committee in July received an “unsolicited communication” from a federal employee “setting forth credible allegations of ‘evidence of possible misconduct’ — specifically, potential ‘inappropriate efforts to influence’ the mandatory audit program,” Politico reported. pinkpantheroz 16 minutes ago

Glenn….term limits for congress are tricky. We have them here in Mo. and the result is that the legislature is full of amateurs easily outmanuevered by the bureaucrats AND controlled by party leadership who do not have such terms. MurphTheSurf3 15 minutes ago

PPO…Trump has lots to worry about and he is not one to deal rationally with his worries. MurphTheSurf3 14 minutes ago

Murph – I think Dems will need to purge a bunch of these unqualified judges when they take back Congress. The RW nutjobs will impeach themselves, Dems only need to finalize it. And then the Dem president needs to have a Dem Senate to equalize the amount of reasonable and qualified judges in the courts. AdLib 14 minutes ago

Murph–I agree that you need some experience to balance the newcomers. Perhaps we need some sort of staggered term limits, or even just staggered elections for Congress. Yeah, I know, just what we need….more elections. glenn 13 minutes ago

True, Murph. It depends on who in the Administration is brave enough to give him the latest bad news. pinkpantheroz 13 minutes ago

Purgin judges means impeaching them and that requires a senate willing to do so…and able to do so. MurphTheSurf3 13 minutes ago

Or, the rwnj judges will just commit crimes, as they are wont to do, and they will be removed from the bench. Just trying to be hopeful here. glenn 12 minutes ago

glenn – You don’t even need to prove a crime to impeach a president. And Mueller laid out 10 crimes just in his report with more financial crimes adding up. It is dishonest for Pelosi or anyone to claim “we need to have the strongest case we can”. No, 10 documented crimes is enough all on its own! AdLib 12 minutes ago

Glenn…..the term limit issue is one of the reasons I like a Parliamentary System- MurphTheSurf3 12 minutes ago

Murph – As we’ve discussed, crimes aren’t prosecuted based on popular opinion. It doesn’t matter where public support is when an impeachment inquiry begins, if it’s legit, all that is uncovered will convince the public that it is appropriate. AdLib 10 minutes ago

Ad–you’re preaching to the choir. That’s why I can’t understand why the public isn’t behind an impeachment, and why Dems aren’t out talking about those crimes every day. Every time the TLB tweets, a Dem congress person should tweet out those 10 documented crimes. Or, at least one of them, related to the TLB’s tweet. glenn 10 minutes ago

Ad…..the folks who need to buy into your 10 crimes scenario have not done so in numbers large enough to deal with the reality that the House Impeachment must be so strong that when the Senate fails to convict the outrage will be palpable MurphTheSurf3 10 minutes ago

PPO – Yes, I saw that article, KY could be represented by Dems in 2020! AdLib 10 minutes ago

Harleigh! AdLib 10 minutes ago

Harleigh….how do you do? MurphTheSurf3 10 minutes ago

Murph–I don’t think a parliamentary system will every fly here! glenn 10 minutes ago

Hey Harleigh! Are you drying out? glenn 9 minutes ago

yawn… just woke up LOL Harleigh 9 minutes ago

Glenn…no a Parliamentary system is antithetical to the one we have…….and which nary another nation does. MurphTheSurf3 9 minutes ago

AD, if Pelosi does impeach, even now, won’t each side be slinging 18″ lawyers at each other over every single word of every document, lodgement, evidentiary procedure etc., et bloody Cet. for years? pinkpantheroz 9 minutes ago

Harleigh! pinkpantheroz 8 minutes ago

Murph – I don’t believe that. I think Pelosi will hold impeachment back unless it is a slam dunk with the public and that is not the right motivation to fulfill her oath of office. AdLib 8 minutes ago

Murph–that’s because the Dems have not sold the 10 crimes scenario like the TLB has sold his “no collusion” schtick. Dems need to keep reminding the public of those 10 crimes as often as possible! Tweet them from the rooftops! glenn 8 minutes ago

and the fact that I am thw new jebus Harleigh 7 minutes ago

Alright, gents. I’m exhausted tonight, so I’m calling it a night. I love our discussions; they make me think and stay on my toes. Anyway, sorry I didn’t get to chat with you much, Harleigh. Take care all, and see you next week. glenn 6 minutes ago

Harleigh, if that’s the case, please ask your Father to pull his orange head in! pinkpantheroz 6 minutes ago

Well…..I have my vision for how this will go and others have theirs. Living in a red state with a blue state next door (that has a very solid red population in its sourthern half) I see the need to bring a lot more people along for the impeachment ride so that they are pissed as hell when the senate says “not guilty”. Just saying. MurphTheSurf3 6 minutes ago

‘night glenn sleep well. pinkpantheroz 6 minutes ago

Harleigh–you can’t be the new jeebus. That has already been claimed by the TLB. Sorry, I had to get one last post in. G’night gents! glenn 6 minutes ago

Moscow Mitch ans Barr will block impeach Harleigh 5 minutes ago

I too am pulling up stakes. Tired from harvesting…ready for bed shortly. Bye to all. MurphTheSurf3 5 minutes ago

night glenn Harleigh 5 minutes ago

glenn – Generally speaking, Americans are scared of change. An impeachment would mean a big and sudden change. Isn’t it interesting that while a majority oppose impeachment, a majority also says they definitely won’t vote for Trump. I think many Americans are just afraid of doing something big but once it’s going and they can see it’s legit, I think they’d jump on board. But that’s not important, Dems need to follow their duties under the Constitution first then worry about political strategy. AdLib 5 minutes ago

Cheers, Murph! pinkpantheroz 5 minutes ago

Hey, I wanted to be the next Jesus! No fair! AdLib 4 minutes ago

agree AD. night Murph Harleigh 3 minutes ago

Well, I’m off as well to distill the essence of more of my brain for next week, assisted by the products of other distillerys! Night all. pinkpantheroz 3 minutes ago

So Trump is a neo Nazi supporting King of the Jews. How does that work? AdLib 3 minutes ago

Take care PPO! Seeya next week! AdLib 2 minutes ago

Does that mean Trump sends himself to the showers? AdLib 2 minutes ago

first they kill Epstein and then Spanky he’s king of the jews. hahahaha Harleigh 2 minutes ago

After Trump loses in 2020, will he walk on water to Israel and take his rightful place? AdLib a minute ago

I really have trouble waiting 15 months to get rid of this human toilet stain. AdLib a few seconds ago

well i’m going back to sleep and hope Spanky follows Koch tonite. night AD. Harleigh a few seconds ago

Sounds good! Night! AdLib in a few seconds
