Who Gave the Keys to Richard Grenell?

Imagine checking in to read a post by Charlie Pierce and seeing this steaming turd of neoconservative bull-fucking-shit instead.

Why would you let an ignorant shill for the Romney campaign appear in print with this nonsense? The Romney Administration would, in effect, follow the same failed neoconservative foreign policy choices that doomed the Bush Administration. It would involve us in yet another foreign war in the Middle East. It would send tens of thousands of Americans to be wounded and killed for a people who don't want us in their country.

A Romney Administration would "identify and arm the legitimate opposition?" What?

There is no "legitimate" opposition in Syria. These are Sunnis, backed by Saudi Arabia, and they are pushing to create a fundamentalist state that would align itself with the Sunni bloc in the Levant. That's all this is. There are no "freedom fighters" and there are no Oxford-educated democrats who want to bring one man, one vote to the streets of Damascus. They want to institute a government that will follow the trend we see everywhere else--slaughter the opposition, suppress the media and any dissent, consolidate power, and put women back under control.

The Romney Administration would "stand up" to Russia? There is no Russia anymore. Russia is a failed state that has little or no economic power anymore, save when they choke off natural gas supplies to Europe.

What a farce. What a Romney Administration wants is war. More war, more killing, more slaughter, and the ability to say "oops!" and stick the problems to whatever Democrat comes along and has to clean up the mess.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
