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

Hey PPO! AdLib an hour ago

Hey A, Happy New Year! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

How are the rains feeling? AdLib an hour ago

Happy New Year to you, my friennd! And A Happy New Year to Fergie! AdLib an hour ago

blissful! We were trapped in the house for 3 days with the smoke, but managed to eke out our rations of Scotch and Vodka long enough to survive! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Save the Scotch! AdLib an hour ago

Luckily the wagon train arrived with fresh supplies pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Now that’s what I call emergency supplies. So relieved to see those rains. AdLib an hour ago

Is there a wet bar on the wagon train? AdLib an hour ago

guess what? Now the farmers will be moaning about flooded paddocks – not really pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Is the US all ready to Lev…itate 3/45* the hell outa Dodge? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

At least their cattle aren’t self-barbecuing. AdLib an hour ago

Let’s pull the Lev-er on Trump! AdLib an hour ago

Yeah, actually that’s a huge problem. Also, veggie prices up 50% now due to shortages pinkpantheroz an hour ago

I can only imagine the consequences from such a horrific disaster. It will be felt for a very long time, not just the immediate destruction but the domino effect from it. AdLib an hour ago

Hey glenn!!! AdLib an hour ago

Have the Senators a Lev-el playing field? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

hi glenn. Yes, Ad, it will take years, if ever, to recover the fauna lost. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey Ad, hey PPO. Before I forget, Ad, have you heard anything from Murph? glenn an hour ago

Looks like Trump is facing a Lev-iathan of a trial with these new charges. AdLib an hour ago

Plenty of Lev-erage for the Dems now pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–So glad to hear you survived rationing! glenn an hour ago

Just! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – Yes, I have, Murph is recovering, the surgery was a success. He started therapy this week. I was so pleased he was well enough to correspond. He’s on the road to recovery, thank goodness. AdLib an hour ago

Great news, Ad. Give him our regards. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Personally, I don’t think there will be any new charges. The Senate isn’t going to do anything about them, so it’s up to the House to do something. Can they impeach again on the same crime? glenn an hour ago

Will do, PPO. AdLib an hour ago

glenn, they have so many justifications for impeachments, they can keep it up for years if necessary pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–that’s great news about Murph! As PPO says, give him my regards. glenn an hour ago

Trump must feel like a Lev-y broke and he’s drowning in flood of new charges. AdLib an hour ago

3/45* has been invited to attend next week. Wonder if he will . pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – However, The House Dems who are managers and prosecuting Trump can include freely, all new charges against him under the auspices f the Articles already in place. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–Yes, there are justifications, but they are the same charges, so do you add another article of impeachment to the ones you already have? glenn an hour ago

glenn – I will let Murph know, he’ll appreciate it. AdLib an hour ago

Don’t know. glenn. Ad, can you enlighten? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–okay, I’m good with that. What’s your opinion on whether or not Moscow Mitch will call witnesses? glenn an hour ago

PPO – Trump could attend and could testify but there’s no way he will do either. AdLib an hour ago

glenn – It’s not necessary to add another Article of Impeachment since all of the latest Lev-elations…er…revelations fit just fine to support abuse of power. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, I just wish his ego would get the better of his tiny mind and testify. He’d get clobbered bigly! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Don’t remember where I read it, or who said it, but someone said that IMPOTUS will resign before he testifies. I think it was one of his biographers. However, I don’t see him doing either; he’ll just keep lying and crying. glenn an hour ago

PPO–Yeah, that would be great to see the tiny mind try to weasel his way out of questions under oath. Do the House managers get to question the witnesses, if there are any? glenn an hour ago

glenn – Right now there are 8 Repub Senators with negative results in polls. If McConnell blocks witnesses, I think they’re doomed. 70% of all Americans and even 60% of Repubs want to see witnesses testify to make it a fair hearing. Repubs will look like fascists ripping up the Constitution if they block witnesses. AdLib an hour ago

I think they are the equivalent of prosecutors, so I’d say yes, glenn pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – Yep, that would be sweet but Trump is like all bullies, a coward at heart. He’s spent his whole life trying to avoid having to testify in court. AdLib an hour ago

I think the biggest Lev-elation is the letter from Guiliani to the Ukranian president, where he says he’s acting for the president PERSONALLY! There goes the defense that tiny mind was trying to “stop corruption”. glenn an hour ago

I’m loving all the WH crims denying knowing Parnas, then seeing all the photos and selfies! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

I agree with you, noo way Trump would ever resign. He is a creature of denial, no matter how bad things got, he would still believe he could wriggle out of them like the snake he is. AdLib an hour ago

glenn – Absolutely, The House Managers are the prosecutors, they are the ones and the only ones who would question witnesses. AdLib an hour ago

Hey, I hear that OJ’s lawyer will be there for trump! Perfect! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–I “hear” what you’re saying, but McConnell has painted himself into a corner with his insistence on no witnesses. I don’t think it bothers him at all to rip up the Constitution. As far as 8 repubs with negative numbers, I don’t think they care either. If they did, they’d be saying they want witnesses. Also, from what I’ve read so far, Moscow Mitch has got some procedural tricks up his sleeve. The only good thing I see about all the wrangling about witnesses is it will prolong the process, and Lev will just keep talking and showing pictures! glenn an hour ago

glenn – That is a huge Lev-elation, takes away one of the primary BS talking points for defending Trump, that he didn’t know what Giuliani was doing. And the GAO declaring Trup broke the law by withholding the aid takes away the other main BS argument, that Trump was being impeached for no good reason because he never broke any law. This has been a good week for justice. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – I don’t know about you but I’m often in dozens of pictures and videos with someone I don’t know. And since Lev worked for Rudy AND Trump had to give personal permission for Lev to use Trump’s lawyers due to a potential conflict of interest, Trump is so busted on what we all see as an obvious lie. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–Yea regarding House managers questioning witnesses! Wouldn’t you just love to see Schiff questioning tiny mind? glenn an hour ago

PPO – I saw a clip from MSNBC today, Dershoweasel was on and you know what his defense of Trump is? Abuse of power is not impeachable. Swear to God, that’s literally what he said! AdLib an hour ago

Good news, that, Ad. Justice needs to be done, but McConnell is a tricky little shit. I worry always about him pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–It’s going to be very interesting to see how repubs, especially McConnell and Graham, defend those two talking points. That tiny mind was acting in the interests of the country instead of for personal gain, when Rudy has explicitly stated it was for tiny mind’s gain. And that no laws were broken, now that the GAO has said laws were broken. However, Dershowitz has said that the GAO has it backwards, and a president does have the right to his agenda. Of course, that’s how Dershowitz is now on tiny mind’s team. glenn an hour ago

DerHeShits hasn’t read the Constitution, it seems. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – So far, there are a potential of Repubs greater than the 4 neeeded who have alluded to supporting witnesses. And the 8 Repubs in trouble electorally really have to be worried that if they appear to have supported a sham trial that damages the Constitution, they will lose moderate voters and their seats. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, forget Collins – she’s a one directional yoyo. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

And Dem Senators can force votes on allowing individual witnesses. Imagine the attack ads that can be edited of each vulnerable Repub Senator refusing to allow witnesses to the crimes of a President. AdLib an hour ago

sidebar! Fergie has just nominated Marie Yovanovitch for a Profile in Courage award! (Noe Marie, not Maria.) pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–yes, WE all see it as an obvious lie, and even if Moscow Mitch and Leningrad Lindsey see it as a lie, they would never admit it. For some reason, they will defend tiny mind no matter what he says or does, and no matter how much evidence piles up against him. I just don’t get it. glenn an hour ago

glenn – That will always be a wonderful thing to imagine, Trump tied up in knots by Schiff. But Trump is a coward as I said, he only likes to fight when he has an overwhelming advantage. AdLib an hour ago

The GOP is welded to tiny mind. CAn’t cut free now pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Personally, I hope those 8 repubs are shitting in their pants! They should lose their seats if they go for a sham trial. I will never understand the people who support tiny mind! glenn an hour ago

PPO – Douche-a-witless apparently hasn’t even seen a Bar Exam. Or a history book. He went on to claim that the way the Constitution is written, “other High Crimes” just means more instances of treason or bribery. “High Crimes” is a term usedback then, it has a defined meaning and Douche is so dim he doesn’t even know that! AdLib an hour ago

glenn, the Repubs still don’t get it , that they no longer have any moral authority to espouse anything. They, unfortunately do have legal majority, but next election hopefully will consign them to infamous history. pinkpantheroz 43 minutes ago

glenn – Collins is a mess. She now is the most unpopular Senator in the US! Just barely beat out McConnell who’s held that dishonor. She is so going down! And I think out of desperation, she will support witnesses. Along with Romney, Murkowski and a few others. Enough to make it happen despite McConnell’s efforts. AdLib 43 minutes ago

Ad–You know, watching and reading about MM and LL shred the constitution in real time worries me. Even if Dem Senators can force votes, there’s no telling what pressure MM and LL and even tiny mind will put on those vulnerable senators, so they may just vote for no witnesses. It truly is an open question, when it is so obvious what senators should do to follow the constitution. glenn 42 minutes ago

Well done, Fergie! Yovanovitch is an incredibly principled and brave human being, she would absolutely deserve it! AdLib 42 minutes ago

PPO–Tell Fergie I like her sidebar! Marie Yovanovitch is a national hero! glenn 41 minutes ago

Fergie says thankx! Now, follow her! pinkpantheroz 41 minutes ago

Ad–slight correction for you….tiny mind only likes to fight when he can cheat. That is his only “overwhelming advantage”. glenn 40 minutes ago

glenn – They will defend Trump…until they are forced to accept that he is a sinking ship. Then, as unprincipled, selfish asses, they would abandon Trump in a heartbeat. I think Trump is going to be so damaged by this trial, he hits new lows and never recovers fully. AdLib 40 minutes ago

Isn’t it very, very quiet in the Rudy camp. Wonder where he is. pinkpantheroz 38 minutes ago

glenn – Yes and I hope Moscow Mitch is also wetting himself out of fear that Dem unitary power may be coming…along with an AG like Kamala Harris who could prosecute Mitch and all the other Repubs who have taken Russian money and betrayed the country. AdLib 38 minutes ago

Ad–So, douch-a-witless (great name, BTW) isn’t a lawyer? So the GAO saying tiny mind committed a crime isn’t a “high crime”, just a “low crime”? Of course, leave it to tiny mind to commit low crimes! glenn 38 minutes ago

glenn, tiny mind is now trying to get Congress to allow bribery of foreign Gummints! WTFFFFF pinkpantheroz 37 minutes ago

PPO – I don’t think the Repubs will understand just how much they have lost until Dems take over in 2021. When they try to whine about the morality of anyone, whine about the defecit, whine about a too-powerful president, no one will care but the shrinking Trump cult. AdLib 37 minutes ago

Ad–With the Lev-elations, and revelations by the GAO this week, I would think that repubs would recognize that tiny mind is sinking, and quickly! But what do I know, I’m just a liberal who believes in justice and the constitution. glenn 36 minutes ago

Ad, true, I doubt they will be prepared for the absolute and utter scorn to be heaped upon them, as well as the indictments! pinkpantheroz 36 minutes ago

PPO–I think Rudy is trying to clean up the mess in his pants. glenn 36 minutes ago

glenn, ah, that might be it – it will take a while! pinkpantheroz 35 minutes ago

glenn – No matter what happens in the trial, and I do think there will be witnesses, there is no way for Trump or the Repubs not to be damaged by it. There is no defense for this criminnal president and they stand with him as accomplices. The trial will spotlight that, they can’t run or hide. This will be devastating for them, no way Dems can be hurt by pursuing justice against a plainly criminal president and GOP. AdLib 35 minutes ago

Ad–Oooohhh, there’s another scenario I’d love to see! Kamala Harris questioning MM and LL! glenn 35 minutes ago

PPO–Exactly. How else can a fraudulent millionaire do business unless he is allowed to bribe foreign governments? After all, they’re only foreigners, right? glenn 34 minutes ago

Note the GOP are saying Lev is under indictment so is unreliable. Guess what, impeachment is also and indictment, isn’t it? So where can they go with that? pinkpantheroz 34 minutes ago

glenn – Yes, cheating, using his money to overwhelm victims and now using the power and wealth of the US to bully leaders of other countries. He would be terrified of a fair fight, if it’s not rigged, he’s not interested. AdLib 33 minutes ago

Ad–agreed. Repubs have nothing to whine about, but that won’t stop them from doing it any how. glenn 33 minutes ago

glenn, soon, hopefully, no one will give a damn pinkpantheroz 32 minutes ago

PPO–Good point about tiny mind being under indictment. Of course, tiny mind has “god on his side”, according to evangelicals, so that’s the difference. glenn 32 minutes ago

Trash-o-witz is just so desperate to be in the spotlight, he’s babbling all kinds of insanity as a defense for Trump. The pedophile. AdLib 31 minutes ago

glenn, still trying to gauge the excuses of the Evilgelicals when their God-Chosen Emperor stands naked. pinkpantheroz 30 minutes ago

PPO–Oh, I’ll give a damn, all right. I want it thrown back in their faces every time, in every way. Just hopefully, their whining won’t make a difference. glenn 30 minutes ago

glenn – In 2021, if Dems win the WH, the AG needs to clean up this corruption and charge ALL the Repubs who have been corrupted by Russian money and self-enrichment including McConnell. AdLib 30 minutes ago

Every time I read that tiny mind is ‘the Chosen One’, I think about the Theme to ‘The Sopranos” Shame about it! pinkpantheroz 29 minutes ago

PPO–Oh, please, don’t even talk about tiny mind naked! It’s just too horrible of a picture! I’ll need mind bleach! glenn 29 minutes ago

glenn – Yep, Trump was so concerned about corruption in Ukraine that he insisted American companies should be able to pay bribes to foreign countries. Another defense blown to pieces. AdLib 29 minutes ago

glenn, quick puppies, kittens, otters! pinkpantheroz 29 minutes ago

Ad–Your scenario is great to contemplate. Also, hopefully all of those corrupt senators will be out of office, so the charges will be even more delicious! glenn 27 minutes ago

PPO – Most of Trump’s 2016 campaign team is in prison! If Lev is unreliable because he’s under indictment, how about Trump’s campaign team and Trump himself who’s under impeachment? And who’s been documented as telling over 15,000 lies? AdLib 27 minutes ago

PPO–Thanks for the distractions! glenn 27 minutes ago

Ad–well tiny mind has already accepted bribes from foreign countries for our military, so why shouldn’t Americans be allowed to bribe foreign countries the same way? glenn 26 minutes ago

PPO – “Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eye.” AdLib 25 minutes ago

Hey Harleigh!!! AdLib 25 minutes ago

oops…so far, it’s only foreign country, Saudi Arabia, tiny mind has accepted bribes from. glenn 25 minutes ago

Hey Harleigh! Good to “see” you. glenn 25 minutes ago

good point, glenn. What do you call $1 Billion for troops into SA? pinkpantheroz 25 minutes ago

glenn – The pendulum would finally be swinging back if Dems win back the Senate, WH and keep the House which even Repubs see as a given. AdLib 24 minutes ago

hi guys Harleigh 24 minutes ago

hi Harleigh! pinkpantheroz 24 minutes ago

glenn – Trump’s taken bribes from dozens of countries, laundered through his hotels. AdLib 23 minutes ago

PPO–Can’t figure out if it’s extortion or bribery. What’s the difference? glenn 23 minutes ago

man things are getting so strange huh? Harleigh 23 minutes ago

Ad–yeah, those bribes, too. It’s the only thing tiny mind understands. glenn 23 minutes ago

glenn – I’m not a lawyer but I think the difference is that bribery is an illegal enticement while extortion is a threat of harm. AdLib 23 minutes ago

BRB folks. glenn 22 minutes ago

glenn, didn’t he extor….er accept money from Qatar as well, or get permission to build? pinkpantheroz 22 minutes ago

Harleigh – Did you ever think when Trump was inaugurated, that we would be watching him tried in The Senate under impeachment? I kinda did. AdLib 21 minutes ago

You know that there is no legal mechanism for the US to take payment from any country including Saudi Arabia, for renting out our military. AdLib 20 minutes ago

i knew he was over his head and suspected dementia. he deserves impechment. senate repubes will defend him and then whine at their indictments. Harleigh 20 minutes ago

Ad, I knew it had to happen, just pissed it has taken so long with such damage to USA. pinkpantheroz 19 minutes ago

And how amazinng that along with the Lev Parnas Lev-elations, the GAO which is non-partisan, declares Trump a criminal! AdLib 19 minutes ago

nobody in the world will trust the usa again Harleigh 19 minutes ago

Doesn’t being labeled a crim, disqualify one from being POTUS? pinkpantheroz 18 minutes ago

guess who??? pinkpantheroz 18 minutes ago

nope Harleigh 18 minutes ago

Harleigh – All of that is true but we also knew he was a criminal and under the influence of Putin. So an impeachment, in a somewhat sane world, seemed inevitable. He’s also stupid and brash so committing sloppy crimes is his habit too. AdLib 18 minutes ago

FERGIE!!! AdLib 18 minutes ago

true ad Harleigh 17 minutes ago

Ad–it was actually a rhetorical question. But as to your answer, then SA bribed tiny mind, and tiny mind extorted them to “keep them from harm”. glenn 17 minutes ago

Harleigh – I think the Dem who beats Trump will have to work hard at it but they will be able to regain trust from other countries. AdLib 17 minutes ago

someday maybe Harleigh 16 minutes ago

PPO–Tiny mind may have extorted Qatar to get permission to build, but wasn’t that before he occupied the oval office? glenn 16 minutes ago

PPO – Not literally, a criminal can be (and is) president. And with this bogus OLC paper saying presidents can’t be criminally indicted, they are permitted to keep comitting crimes…unless impeached. AdLib 15 minutes ago

Harleigh–it’s already happening. The Brits have already said something to that effect….that they can’t trust the US to be a “reliable partner”. glenn 15 minutes ago

I thought it was more recent, with SA trying to monster Qatar on tiny minds behalf pinkpantheroz 15 minutes ago

Think about how many crimes Trump and his crime family can and should be charged with once they are thrown out of power. A lesson needs to be taught to the country and future politicians that you don’t cross these lines. AdLib 14 minutes ago

Ad–not to mention tiny mind was already a criminal when he was “elected”. glenn 14 minutes ago

glenn – Got it! But it’s ot Trump extorting SA, it’s Trump serving SA. AdLib 14 minutes ago

Spanky’s a totally demented whackdoodle and it’s getting worse every single day. C’mon folks. An obese ugly 73 old orange man in a Twitter tantrum war with a 16 year old foreign girl about a magazine award/cover??!!!! 90 tweets on one day before noon!! Invisible airplanes! Space force?!! Leasing out our military as mercenaries for his own profit?!! This is not sane behavior at all people. He can’t even stop attacking dead people like Mclame or Dingel. His cult of repubeliekkklan fascist Nazi morons must be defeated in 2020. Harleigh 14 minutes ago

PPO–Not sure about the timing on the Qatar thing, you could be correct. Doesn’t matter to repubs anyway. glenn 13 minutes ago

Ad–Looks like the NY AG is working on lots of those charges once tiny mind and his family are out of office. glenn 12 minutes ago

Harleigh – I can imagine Trump just having a total mental breakdown this year. Maybe during the impeachment trial, maybe during the campaign but he seems drugged out and spinning out of control. Maybe we should do a pool on when Trump blows his top. AdLib 12 minutes ago

RICO the lot of ’em, rogue Senators, WH admin, Trump Mob family, the lot. Grabbit all back! pinkpantheroz 12 minutes ago

Harleigh–Tell us how you really feel. I agree with you completely. The problem is that we have actual elected officials who are defending tiny mind. glenn 11 minutes ago

Hi folks, please go to https://t.co/LHnfFD8Xbh and nominate Marie Yovanovitch for Profiles in Courage Award. It only takes a few minutes. I need to see if this link is correct for you. It should come up with jfklibrary.org Fergie1 11 minutes ago

glenn – Yes and once a Dem is in the WH, Trump’s tax returns will be handed to the NY AG on a silver platter and Trump and his disgusting family will go to prison. AdLib 11 minutes ago

Ad–the question is…how will we know when tiny mind has a total mental breakdown? What will be the difference and how will we spot it? And, even if we can spot it, repubs will just ignore it and let MM and LL run the government. glenn 10 minutes ago

PPO – RICO is exactly what’s needed to go after this entire Trump conspiracy gang. AdLib 10 minutes ago

Fergie – Thanks so much for the link, I will do that! AdLib 9 minutes ago

glenn, you never know. Putin may decide he’s excess baggage now and feed him a PoloniumBerder pinkpantheroz 9 minutes ago

Thanks Ad. Apparently Trumpers are nominating you know who

Fergie1 8 minutes ago

glenn – Good point, it would have to be more of a physical thing, eyes rolling in the head, screaming and drooling, speaking in tongues…you know, looking like his Evagelical lunatic spiritual adviser. AdLib 8 minutes ago

You’re kidding, surely, Fergie! pinkpantheroz 7 minutes ago

dementia and adderal…. he’s BOUT GONE. word salad lies are the tell. Harleigh 6 minutes ago

Fergie – And they’re no doubt going to keep nominating Trump for a Nobel prize too. Trump’s future is the opposite of every other president, instead of getting recognitions and having things named after him, his name will be removed from everything it’s currently on. AdLib 6 minutes ago

Fergie–thanks for the link. Done! glenn 6 minutes ago

Ad, the HypoChristians would lap that up and demand 4 more years! pinkpantheroz 5 minutes ago

Harleigh – Maybe Trump has a stroke after sniffing too frequently in a debate? AdLib 5 minutes ago

PPO–A PoloniumBerder! Great idea! glenn 5 minutes ago

PPO – I think the nutjob evangelicals have exposed themselves as frauds through Trump, after Trump they will never escape being seen by non-followers as total frauds. AdLib 4 minutes ago

Me Granny said I shouldn’t speak ill of the Afflicted. Tough! pinkpantheroz 4 minutes ago

Ad, Trump: “She wouldn’t put my photo up…..”!! Jebus! Fergie1 4 minutes ago

i’m fading out. later folks… have a good week. Harleigh 3 minutes ago

Okay, folks, I’m done for the night. Great chatting with all of you….good to hear from you Fergie and Harleigh. Take care everyone, and hope by this time next week, tiny mind will have lost what’s left of it! G’night glenn 3 minutes ago

‘Night Harleigh glenn 3 minutes ago

And what about that emergency trip to the hospital for Trump? I think he has some major medical problems in addition to his dementia. AdLib 3 minutes ago

Thanks Glenn! Fergie1 3 minutes ago

Night Harleigh! AdLib 3 minutes ago

Take care, glenn! AdLib 3 minutes ago

OK, folks, Great chatting. See you all next week, hopefully, pinkpantheroz 3 minutes ago

Same here, great chatting PPO and great to see Fergie and get that link! AdLib 2 minutes ago

Night all and thanks as always. So kind and thoughtful. Fergie1 a few seconds ago
