Vox Populi, our weekly live chat about the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PST. Unfortunately, I am tied up.inventing a funnel that can be inserted into the brains of Republican Senators for pouring in truth and self-respect so guest hosting tonight will be the always wonderful Choicelady. Have a great evening and see you at next week’s Vox! AdLib 7 days ago

I am here, for now. Khirad 7 days ago

Khirad!!! I hope you’re still here. It’s been far too long! choicelady 7 days ago

Hi all! pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

Well, what a week for Schiff – hero! pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

PPO – so good to see you! Yes, Schiff is amazing! choicelady 7 days ago

How are things in Australia? I thought you’d gotten a lot of rain recently, is that correct? choicelady 7 days ago

Does anyone think that the GOP will do the right thing? Ever? and get rid of this boil on their backsides? pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

There are reports that there are three votes for witnesses in the GOP with another possible. But overall, I doubt any of them will convict him. choicelady 7 days ago

Hey glenn – I SEEEEE you! choicelady 7 days ago

“if the truth doesn’t matter, we’re lost.” glenn 7 days ago

cl, things have cooled off, we’ve had all the plagues in one week – Bushfires, drenching rain and flash floods, a Dust Storm and now a plague of spiders escaping the wetness! How biblical is that, and our Pentecostal idiot of a PM still reg=fuses to admit to human-induced climate change! pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

Evening, everyone. Yea, CL, you’re here! Hey PPO and Khirad. glenn 7 days ago

Yes. Years ago I read a detective series where the wheels of justice had turned, but the wrong decision was stil made. The detective said, “right needs to be done”. And that was his point, too. choicelady 7 days ago

hi glenn, I’ don’t know Khirad, nor see him/her pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

I’m glad you have rain, PPO. I’m sorry everything ELSE has happened! Years ago when we’d had fires, earthquakes, etc. a reporter asked the Governor’s press person about that. He sighed and said, “Yes, we’re just toads and boils aways fromt eh 7 plagues.” I think you’re there, too. choicelady 7 days ago

PPO–Don’t know Khirad, either, but s/he was here at the very top. I remember last week, s/he was also here, but also momentarily. glenn 7 days ago

Nope, not yet, the toads are still up north! pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

PPO – Khirad has left the building. He was a longtime PPOV participant whom we’ve not seen in years. Brilliant and insightful, I hope he will return. choicelady 7 days ago

Khrad is a man, BTW. choicelady 7 days ago

PPO–WOW! The land of oz is really going through it all! glenn 7 days ago

OK, hope so as well, we need bodies! pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

CL–Thanks for the info on Khirad. Hope he returns. glenn 7 days ago

He did a blog series for us years ago. He went to Washington DC to the less well known sites, and it was fascinating. He posted daily telling us about things he’d seen we didn’t even know existed. He apparently speaks Arabic, is very knowledgable about ME history and politics, and plays in a Scottish drum corps band. He’s someone well worth knowing. choicelady 7 days ago

See where Trump has been caught on camera saying to get rid of AMb. Marie Yovanovitch! Little nasty man in an orange fat suit pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

Can either one of you explain republican senators to me? They aren’t even paying attention; yet complain they haven’t heard anything new; yet won’t allow any new witnesses. WTF? glenn 7 days ago

glenn – he’s backpeddling saying he had a ‘right’ to get rid of anyone and hire anyone he wanted. Doesn’t explain the ‘get rid of her’ statement nor the lack of proper process. choicelady 7 days ago

Khirad sounds like a fascinating person. Hope we hear from him. glenn 7 days ago

glenn, they’re caught with their nuts in a vice, those who have any left. They followed someone they thought they could control, but he’s out conned them all pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

Donnie wants to be Gotti. That’s why I’m thrilled Parnas is singing. He will be “Sammy the Bull” Gravano who brought down John Gotti to Trump’s wannabe godfather position. choicelady 7 days ago

CL–Oh, puleeze! The impotus using proper process? Give me a break! glenn 7 days ago

glenn – I know, I know. I’m soooo naive. choicelady 7 days ago

Trump can’t get over not still being on “The Apprentice”. choicelady 7 days ago

cl, I think he thinks he still is and can order everyone around and do dumb stuff, all for ratings. pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

Does anyone know how Murph is doing? pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

glenn – that’s exactly right. choicelady 7 days ago

PPO – is there something wrong with Murph? I haven’t been here for a time. That would be worrisome. choicelady 7 days ago

Khirad!!! So GREAT to see you! choicelady 7 days ago

cl, he had a procedure a few weeks ago – don’t know for what. pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

PPO–On one hand, I hear what you’re saying. On the other hand, they are the only ones who can actually “out-con” him. They have many tools in place. First of all, they can vote to subpoena Bolton, Pompeo, etc. They can also find at least 2-3 people in his cabinet to invoke the 25th where, I think, Congress then gets into the act. Or, they can find their nuts and stop cowtowing to him. I just can’t wrap my mind around their fecklessness, lies, and IMO, plain treason! glenn 7 days ago

PPO =- I hate to hear that. I’ll drop him a note. choicelady 7 days ago

glenn – totally agree! choicelady 7 days ago

CL–I sure hope Parnas does bring down the impotus! glenn 7 days ago

from your lips….glenn! pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

Pleased to meet you, Khirad. pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

glenn and PPO – absolutely. As Schiff said, it is going to come out. choicelady 7 days ago

Ooops – Khirad left. choicelady 7 days ago

I’m here. Khirad 7 days ago

With AdLib not here, he might not want to dive in again. choicelady 7 days ago

I have him present pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

Oh you ARE here – that’s wonderful! choicelady 7 days ago

Catch me up. Khirad 7 days ago

CL–If I remember correctly, Murph had open heart surgery. I asked Ad about him last week and Ad said Murph was recovering, and hoped to be back with us soon. That’s all I know. glenn 7 days ago

Khirad you wnat to introduce yourself? I am SO GLAD to see you! choicelady 7 days ago

Who all remembers me? Khirad 7 days ago

Oh no – that’s major big stuff! Sorry to here that about Murph. choicelady 7 days ago

cl, I guess we’re not at Adlib’s level, but we still come up with good stuff every now and again! pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

Khirad – I do. AdLib is off tonight, but he’ll be back next week. PPO is from Australia and a regular, and glenn is from Georgia where she lives near her kids and grandkids. They are very much staples of theFrisy VPopuli conversations. choicelady 7 days ago

Just let me fold in. Khirad 7 days ago

Khirad – what have you been doing recently? choicelady 7 days ago

We are talking about Schiff and the course of the impeachment hearings of course. choicelady 7 days ago

Khirad–you’re going to have to introduce yourself to me and PPO. CL remembers you; she gave us a little of your history; I’m so interested on your take on what’s happening in DC right now. glenn 7 days ago

Looking forward to your views, Khirad pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

Just had another job interview. I’m into the kitchen thing. Knives and stuff. Khirad 7 days ago

I couldn’t take another day of the “trial” Khirad 7 days ago

Knives? Looks like we’re gunna need hatchets to hack 3/45* out of the WH pinkpantheroz 7 days ago

I do not have that in my knife roll, but I’ve seen things. Khirad 7 days ago
