Incapacitated




You can mark down today's date. It's January 24, 2017, sometime in the afternoon depending on where you are.

This is the moment we've all been waiting for.

This is the moment when we've been given all the proof we need that the President of the United States is mentally unfit to discharge the duties of his office. 

President Donald Trump believes millions of votes were cast illegally in last year's election, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said on Tuesday, but he wouldn't provide any concrete evidence for the claim, which has long been debunked.
"The President does believe that, I think he's stated that before, and stated his concern of voter fraud and people voting illegally during the campaign and continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence people have brought to him," Spicer said.
Pressed for what evidence exists, Spicer would say only that Trump "has believed that for a while based on studies and information he has."

You see, today he sent the White House Press Secretary into the White House Press Room to lie to the White House Press Corps about something that can easily be verified. He has no proof, no evidence, nothing. He does have his orders. And the sitting president ordered him to lie to the American people about the subversion of American democracy because he is insecure about having lost the popular vote. In an election held last November. That he won under the rules of the Electoral College.

Did "3-5 million illegal immigrants vote in the last election?"

No.

We know this is a fact. There were a handful of people who were caught voting illegally and one of them was a Trump voter. There is no such thing as voter fraud. It is statistically minuscule when it happens, if it happens at all. It is just a right wing talking point designed to help Republicans disenfranchise American citizens. We're not in the midst of a campaign where serial lying is tolerated. We are in governance mode. There is a huge difference between running for the job, being the POTUS-elect, and then taking the oath of office. After you take the oath of office, everything changes in an instant.

The Trump Regime has not gotten the memo. The man is crazy. He can't let it go. It's a nothing burger of a story. It's not even relevant anymore.

Wow.

If this insistence, which is now in its fourth day, on the existence of something that doesn't actually exist, doesn't wake someone up, what the hell will? If this continues, someone is going to have to invoke the 25th Amendment to the constitution. It should be mandatory for the president's physician to examine him and report back to the bipartisan leadership of Congress. I mean, they should put him in an ambulance and head on down to Bethesda immediately. 

I'm not a betting man, but I seriously doubt this can continue for much longer. There's something seriously wrong here and it is not going to sort itself out. Where can we find one decent man in Washington with the stones to do this?

I will bet you this, though--no one will say anything or do anything until Americans are actually physically harmed. What a tragedy.

UPDATE: I see I'm not the only person who agrees with this.

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…
