Reince Priebus is Being Set Up




The big story this morning is that the White House Chief of Staff is out of the loop and has no idea that they're setting him up to take the fall. They're sending him out to lie for Trump because, why not? He wasn't in the loop when Russia was colluding with the campaign and he's out of the loop now. 

This man is a liar and everyone knows it:

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus on Sunday flatly denied any involvement between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russian officials.

“No,” Priebus said when asked by host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" about potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia officials.




Priebus said he’s spoken with high-level intelligence officials in Washington who have told him that no such involvement occurred. 

“When I say top-level people, I mean top-level people,” the chief of staff said, refusing to provide specific names when pressed by Wallace about the sources.

The way this works is, someone is going to deftly leak contradicting information that will make Priebus look like a fool and no one will notice because these denials are falling on deaf ears. There are three ongoing investigations of how Russia interfered in the 2016 election cycle. Each and every one of them damages the fragile legitimacy of this regime. 

Priebus can go on television and lie like this because he was heading the Republican National Committee. He was out of the loop and knows there is no legal jeopardy for him to deny what practically every insider knows--Trump is owned by Russia, and they own him lock, stock and barrel.

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…
