Wednesday, October 02, 2019

As the impeachment drama has unfolded over the past week, a series of disclosures has illuminated President Trump's command over key federal agencies, revealing how he has compelled them to pursue his personal and political goals, investigate his enemies and lend legitimacy to his theories about the 2016 election.

The president's personal concerns have become priorities of departments that traditionally have operated with some degree of political independence from the White House " and their leaders are engaging their boss's obsessions.

"Barr and Pompeo are stuck in the fog machine. They seem captives of the president's perverse worldview," said Timothy Naftali, a historian and former director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. "Authoritarian regimes have this problem all the time ... when all government activity is the product of the id of the leader. But in a republic, that's unusual."

This stuff is not normal. It isn't in normal's neighborhood or even zip code. You can't get to normal from where we are.

Fat Nixon has always been about one thing and one thing only...himself.

In his dealings with contractors.

In his hiring of illegal immigrants.

In his affairs.

In his cheating.

In his grifting.

Anyone that thought he would be working for America or anyone other than himself is a damn fool.

Anyone that would go on national radio and call his teenage daughter a "fine piece of ass" is nothing but worthless trash.

He is a sociopathic narcissist compulsive liar.

Don Conjob should be remembered as such.

His current trophy wife lied on her entrance visa and broke immigration laws. Other people that have committed less serious offenses have been deported. She should be no different.

The entire clan is proof that money can not buy class.

Trump has grabbed the Nation by the prussy, and because he is a celebrity, the Republicans let him do it.

Trump is a poor person's idea of a successful person, an ignorant person's idea of a smart person, and a weak person's idea of a strong person.

Lol... He is making fun of the "Hillary/Prison 2016" taglines of Trumpers.

You are right, it was shallow and polarizing.

THAT is what conservatives "built".

These folks have sworn an oath of loyalty to the Constitution, not to Trump. Any actions contrary to that is sedition.

Remember the signs from the 2010 Tea Party rallies? "We don't need no Czars!" and such ...

Same hypocrites are rallying for Trump, who's ACTUALLY attempting to be one.

EXAMPLE: compote.slate.com

Ya, were are the 'Checks and Balances' they hungered for then? Now they rant against those checks and balances spelled out in the Constitution.

Cheating, Grift, and Dishonesty as far as the eyes can see...

(the GOP shrugs)...they've grown used to it.

Liberals do have a common theme as they did with W. On one hand they banter about how stupid and idiotic the guy is, then on the other hand they talk like he's an evil mastermind who is intelligent enough to run an entire government on his own merit. This article is a perfect example of Liberals making someone powerful solely based on their own hate. If you would just stick to calling him names and disagreeing with him, you would at least show some consistency.

Yes yes, your usual "To hell with the evidence and facts, I'll believe what I choose to believe" is getting tiring.

Go back to Fox News and please avoid voting in the future.

Nah, it just shows that so many Republicans are ready to roll over for any of Trump's selfish demands. Dear Leader before country.
