Hypocrisy highlights

U.S. Attorney General William Barr has stated that President Trump’s tweets about cases involving the Justice Department “make it impossible” for him to do his job. What he actually means is that Trump’s bragging and crowing make it very hard to hide what Barr is up to (putting the fix in for cases involving Trump cronies) behind the scenes.

The situation is so flagrantly outside the norms that over 2000 former Department of Justice officials have signed an open letter demanding that Barr resign.

Moscow Mitch must recuse himself

So must Lickspittle Lindsey Graham

According to Senate rules, the senators hearing the Trump impeachment trial must take this oath:

I solemnly swear (or affirm, as the case may be) that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of [President Trump], now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: So help me God.

Moscow Mitch has made it abundantly clear that he has no interest in anything resembling justice, bragging about predetermining the outcome.

Now, Lickspittle Lindsey says this: “I have made up my mind,” Graham said Saturday at a conference in Qatar. “I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here.”

These two senators cannot participate in the trial as they have already promised to abrogate their responsibilities and void their oath.

And, just thinking aloud here, how does it help Trump if he is not removed from office when members of the Senate so blatantly admit that the fix is in?

Republicans are marching to the beat of the Putin drum

It is bad enough that the denizens of the White House and their sycophants in Congress are ever more fervently repeating the conspiracy theories cooked up by the Russians. Now, Moscow Mitch has abdicated any responsibility for even trying to have the appearance of a fair Senate impeachment trial. Instead, he has publicly stated that he will allow the White House to control the trial. Trump and McConnell are clearly disloyal to the U.S., and completely in the thrall of Putin. This is sickening and will only get worse as they become increasingly emboldened.

Russia sees a way to defeat the U.S. by coopting our government and never having to fire a shot. Say thanks to the treasonous Republicans for handing our fate and future to Vladimir Putin.

Let Moscow Mitch tell you himself:

Moscow Mitch admits Senate trial a sham, lets Trump’s lawyers run the show and guarantees acquittal

Those dang Kurds!

I’m not making this up.

Trump is complaining that no Kurds assisted in the D-Day invasion.

After extensive research it has also been found that:

  • No Kurds helped toss tea into the harbor during the Boston Tea Party
  • No Kurds helped raise the US flag on Iwo Jima
  • There were no Kurds defending Washington, D.C. during the War of 1812
  • No Kurds defended The Alamo
  • No Kurds helped hunt witches in Salem, MA
  • No Kurds flew with Charles Lindbergh across the Atlantic
  • No Kurds helped to defend against Eli Manning’s passes in two Super Bowl losses by the Patriots.

So, I suppose it comes as no surprise that Trump has agreed to the mass slaughter of the Kurds in Syria by the Turks.
