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
