Hi glenn!

How are you feeling today?

AdLib2 hours ago

Hi Hey D. It’s me. That’s why I’m here so early I tried so hard to stay awake but I am just falling asleep every five minutes. So I won’t be able to join Vox tonight. Please tell everyone I said hello and that I wish I could be here with them tonight. I do have to say I’m so glad the treasonous lying bully has finally been indicted so many times. Now all we have to do is get some convictions. Anyway again please tell everyone I said hello and that I hope to be here next week.

Well Murph I didn’t get through it all but hope to finish it over the weekend. The man is totally unbelievable. I will never understand why anyone would vote for this thief the be president again.

Okay, I am growing annoyed with MSNBC running segments about how close the race between Biden and Trump is. First, they blather about how “scary” national polls are that show them close. Elections are won by state votes, not national votes or Trump would never have beaten Hillary! All that matters are the numbers in the swing states and those are ALL leaning are far and away in Biden’s camp. Secondly, looking at a poll right now, ignoring what’s coming down the pike with all the trials of Trump, seeing him in the courtroom as an indicted criminal and all the stories that are going to come out about the crimes he committed against the country, is going to make a huge difference in Biden’s numbers over Trump. I really despise this BS “horse race” crap that’s all based on a snapshot of polls that don’t reflect reality at all!

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph – I will pass it along to her.

AdLib2 hours ago

TW….SInce I am surrounded by his faithful, I do get it. He is a mirror reflecting all they hate, fear, look down upon, disbelieve, and he does in a way that appeals to the raw emotions of the mob.

And the judge overseeing the case Trump filed against Michael Cohen has ordered Trump’s attorneys to appear on Monday since Cohen says it appears Trump plans to just no-show for his deposition on Tuesday. This guy is going to be crushed week after week for years to come!

AdLib2 hours ago

And then TW….he promises *and they believe the promise” that he can avenge them, and deliver them from the evil they behold, lifting up to the rightful positions they deserve.

Murph if that is what the folks want in your community, it’s has to be very hard for you to be able to keep a straight face when they start praising him. I’m sure you bust out laughing when you get home.

I do not laugh….I walk away. I have learned that engagement feeds the flames.

Murph – The whole victimhood mentality was a rich vein for Trump to mine in the GOP but it’s run its course. So many are tired of his constant crying about what a terrible victim he is and how he keeps conning his cultists into sending this alleged “billionaire” their money. Trump has lost, dead man walking whether he or his cultists know it or not.

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph well, you’re a better man that I am because I would laugh in their face. Because that’s me there are times when common sense leaves me alone to fend for myself.

Ad…..among the faithful there has been little in the way of shifts….he is the hands down winner of the nomination sweepstakes as of now, and I do not see anyone else gaining ground.

Murph – It’s a well worn tool of the malignant narcissists who would be king, “I will be your sword of righteousness and vengeance against the evil people who are our enemies!” Hitler did it too and Trump knows that.

AdLib2 hours ago

Ad Lib….I am sure that Trump really knows very little of Hitler, or Mussolini, or Stalin, or Tojo or……what he is arises from his very soul…..he comes to the animus you describe naturally, instinctively.

MurphTheSurf3

Ad….still….DT is certainly a born to be member of that loathsome club.

Murph – Just heard DeSantis has pulled his campaign out of the Super Tuesday states! He is cooked and burned. He’s trying to focus his dwindling funds on IA and NH and that is what someone desperate and losing would do. This move alone will chase off many of his remaining contributors. He’s announcing, “I’ve lost!” without saying it but the message is clear. The GOP is so hollowed out and corrupt, of course there can’t be anyone to challenge the cult leader, that’s not how cults work.

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph sounds like the type of folks that would welcome a dictator. As to them being vile, hateful I’m not surprise as I just did a quick lookup to see where the state stood during the Civil War and it seems they couldn’t make up their mind and sent troops to both sides. That is people made the choice. But, I have to believe that level of indecision has been passed down over time.

Ad….I did not hear about DeSantis’ “new strategy”…..your read on this fits in with my understanding as well.

Murph – I think Roy Cohn probably taught Trump most of what he knows about Hitler but most likely taught him that you have to be furious, have enemies, lie so much and so often, especially big lies there’s no time for others to correct them all, etc.

AdLib2 hours ago

TW…that is an interesting line of thought……Truman is the most famous pol to rise out of Mo. and he was the kind of person you describe here. Very interesting insight.

MurphTheSurf3

Ad….Cohn was a thinker….sinister but a thinker…..I can see him doing as you suggest and passing it off as original.

MurphTheSurf3

Ad if he pulled out of Super Tuesday he’s just sent up the flag of concession. IA isn’t going to get him anything but more humilation.

DeSantis is facing growing, fearsome headwinds in FL….he needs to watch his own office holding….

MurphTheSurf3

Murph I know the famous motto is MO is the Show Me State, but they’ve been shown Trump is nothing but a grifter and they still want to support him? Doesn’t add up.

Murph – Trump should never have ended up as a potential member of the Hitler Club. So many things went wrong that put him in that position. He is so undeserving of the incredible luck he’s had throughout his life…but karma is finally here for him.

AdLib2 hours ago

TW….they do not see that he is as you label him….He is a visionary hero of the people who leaves the not-real Americans shivering in their shoes such that they cannot defeat him honestly so they steal elections.

MurphTheSurf3

TW – Agreed, DeSantis doesn’t have a prayer of winning in IA or NH. In fact, RamaSWAMPY has passed him in NH and is in 2nd place…way behind Trump of course.

AdLib2 hours ago

Ad, Murph just finished Ruth Ben -Ghiat’s book Strong Men Mussolini to the Present and Trump has all the characteristics of those WW2 dictators and some of the modern ones, in fact she does some nice compare and contrasts of Trump with Mussolini

twilson117

Ad…..membership in that club is serendipitous…..Hitler and Mussolini are good examples of circumstances making the man. Stalin not so much…..he was, during the revolution a fierce and very focused leader with a well developed ideology….which he generally disregarded once he was in power.

Murph – DeSantis’ career is over. He is Gov for 2 more years then there is nowhere for him to go. A failed presidential candidate who has no shot of a comeback after failing so spectacularly and I think Dems may have the wind at their backs in FL in 2024 because the people there are really turning against him. His poor wife, she had all her Jackie O. outfits picked out and ready to go.

AdLib2 hours ago

TW…thanks for the book lead….I will look into it.

TW – Very interesting! What did she write as being the biggest traits Trump has in common with Mussolini?

AdLib2 hours ago

I have a friend who is on the faculty at the New College (math) and she says that the school is imploding with even those who backed D losing faith AND interest in him.

MurphTheSurf3

Murph – I think you’re right, the rise of dictators is serendipitous in many cases. The wrong person being in the right place by accisent at the right times. Trump would never have been seriously considered in previous decades, he’d have been defeated as easily as Goldwater was back then. But in the age of social media, Trump is a force to be reckoned with. Prior to social media and Fox News, I don’t think Trump would’ve had a prayer.

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph there is part of me that understand why they see him that way, but the logical side of me has very hard time comprehending why they refuse to see he is an incompetent blowhard and the country will go to hell in a hand basket if he gets back in.

Murph – I’ve read articles about New College rapidly deteriorating, of course, when it becomes a nasty playground for DeSantis to pour in radical right indoctrination and wring out all the missions and character it had before. What’s the point of the school now and who wants to teach or study there? They’ve stacked it full of athletes who couldn’t care less about liberal arts, so it’s just a school for low level athletes who couldn’t get into a halfway decent school. It is already a massive failure and students are bailing.

AdLib2 hours ago

Ad she talks about how Mussolini would promise things and not deliver, place his sycophants in office, spied on everyone only would have those who told him he was great around him and was total sexual deviate along with being thief. Then there is Berlusconi he and Trump have a lot in common.
