When the news get too depressing these are the books to read.

Now, where can one find happiness? Always a good place to start is: anywhere a good, sound couple of laughs wash away the alternative, of course. And each of the Tricky Headlines eBooks holds hundreds and hundreds of laughs for the having. Here you can enjoy the hilarious, definitely not politically correct (PC) quips, comments, and invariably irreverent observations of/by S D Rodrian on today's news headlines collected in this ever continuing series of books intended most especially of all for the latest eReaders out there (each & every available tablet, computer, and iPhone you can buy).

In a world of serious, sad, and even quite tragic circumstances (a world in which about the greatest need is & always will remain the need for laughter), humor always is the point of departure here... ever the abiding goal of these forthright takes on today's so very truly tricky headlines.

Intended for an adult audience (think of these items as comics without the graphics). Every collection suitable to be the ideal reading companion for any seated occasion.

You can a rate & review of the Tricky Headlines at Amazon.com, but note the two reviews already there: One verified purchaser of an ebook wrote a four star review saying he/she found it a "funny take on news" although cautioning it is not "very politically correct." While a reviewer named "Clara" (who doesn't appear to have bought the book) writes ungrammatically that "she" found its writing: "So. Horribly. Written. So poorly written. The world is dumber with this book’s publication” as if Tricky Headlines were Tolstoy and not standup--beside leaving one wondering how "Clara" could review a book "she" could never have read, of course. [Reads a bit like Trump, doesn't it.] But don't be a clairvoyant like "Clara." Buy a book and THEN review it.

Why his fans think Trump has ‘great and unmatched wisdom’

Because Trump's wisdom (pretty much like theirs) has never really caught fire? [It's snuffed, dude. Stillborn snuffed.] I suppose this is 'great' maybe because that way it can't cause forest fires.

Luckily, Trump Is an Unstable Non-Genius

****************************************************

-- Former U.S. attorney Joseph E. diGenova, a frequent Trump defender, called whistleblowers “suicide bombers” and accused Democrats of “regicide” during a Fox News interview with Giuliani and Laura Ingraham.

Just like Trump himself, the Republicans who long to make The Donald our king don't seem to care any longer just how outrageously laughable they look: "They wanna kill our king!"

****************************************************

-- On Monday, the federal judge in the New York case dismissed Trump’s lawsuit seeking to block the Manhattan district attorney from obtaining his tax returns. Judge Victor Marrero broadly rejected Trump’s claim that a president cannot be investigated by any prosecutor, anywhere, for any reason. He said this position it “repugnant” to the concept that no man is above the law. “The Court cannot square a vision of presidential immunity that would place the President above the law with the text of the Constitution, the historical record, the relevant case law” or any other authority, the judge wrote in a 75-page ruling. “This Court cannot endorse such a categorical and limitless assertion of presidential immunity from judicial process.” The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has issued a stay of the subpoena, pending Trump's appeal.

If it did, then a dissolute scofflaw like Trump would be above the law. And instead of seeking justice in Court we would all have to beg for the capricious blessing of The Donald (or, you know, purchase it).

At least 11 elephants died trying to save a calf that plunged into a waterfall and drowned

A well-known Roman Catholic witchdoctor said to me: "This is definitely a very clear message from Above to the GOP about its grim future."

He told me that a nominally [someone who was only a 'little'] Republican will lead 11 'major' Republicans over the cliff to their utter & complete destruction.

"Do you doubt it?" He asked my obvious look of secular skepticism: "The entire GOP establishment is corrupt, perverse, illicit. And like all such unscrupulous enterprises that live on society's improprieties it cannot last forever: It must either implode of its own inner-failings, rot, corruption--or it must be forcibly brought down for the Good of all." Then he said he didn't want to take my money on which it would be.

White House talking points suggest a ‘serious danger’ Yovanovitch will reveal information without authorization

Sure. It's seriously dangerous to Trump. [That's why he doesn't authorize it.]

****************************************************

Disclosures suggest Trump’s White House politicized pretty much everything — and there are lots of witnesses

We investigated the Watergate scandal. We believe Trump should be impeached.

Trump must not only be impeached but everything he's stolen from the American taxpayers, from individual states, and from innocent victims of his financial self-dealings must be confiscated and properly restituted to them accompanied by any applicable fines & penalties. The other enablers & participants in Trump's crime sprees should also face their day in Court with penalties from public disgrace & humiliation to prison following all convictions... so that future generations of Americans who are called to serve their country may fully grasp that their loyalty is to all Americans and not just to any dissolute opportunist like Trump who happens to be their boss.

Trump and his whole entire corrupt crime family have defrauded banks, taxpayers, businesses (and untold others) and committed brazen acts of lawlessness & theft all of which must be prosecuted--And every single time a conviction is secured punished severely enough so that it will give pause to generations of future unmitigated criminal wannabes like them.

Those foreign business ties? Mr. Trump’s sons have plenty.

Appeals court rules against Trump in fight with Congress over president’s accounting firm records

At last the long arm of the law is slowly reaching into the White House and clawing at all the hoodlums who have wormed their way in there.

The Simple Reason Trump Does What He Does

Because as every law enforcement officer knows: no criminal can stop himself. And he will not stop until he is stopped.

Rudy Giuliani Reportedly Under Investigation For Links To U.S. Ambassador’s Recall

Trump says he doesn’t know if Giuliani is still his attorney

Translation: "Giuliani is waiting for a bus." [Rudy: "What? Donny told me to wait here because he was taking me for a ride."]

Trump defends Giuliani amid reports of federal probe

Mmm... could Giuliani have read the Riot Act to Trump in a recent phone call? I wonder. Rudy must have lots on The Donald for Trump to express this kind of public support for an underling. [Wonder why other underlings haven't leveraged their own piles of dirt?]

Hunter Biden to resign from Chinese firm’s board, won’t take foreign work if father wins election

Do I believe Joe and Hunter Biden are corrupt? If Hunter Biden had no qualifications for the position he got other than that [it appears] the Ukrainians wanted to influence his father then that is the definition of corruption; and if the Bidens argue the opposite then that is the definition of the corrupt soul. If Hunter Biden got his job when Joe Biden was no part of the American government, then that is the only way their situation escapes the definition of it being corruption.

Diplomat tells investigators he raised alarms in 2015 about Hunter Biden’s Ukraine work but was rebuffed

In the 2020 election it's less a matter of corruption as it is of Joe Biden's judgment and intelligence: How stupid do you have to be to not see that even with twice his qualifications if Hunter had gotten off a bus in Ukraine there's no way in Hell he would have gotten that job?

If Joe Biden really wanted the best for the Republic and not just for himself he'd quit the race now and work towards electing a Democratic candidate who is in the mainstream of the American electorate (for if the Democrats pick Warren or Sanders they might just probably re-elect an utterly reprehensibly corrupt Donald Trump).

****************************************************

Trump’s campaign manager calls impeachment inquiry a ‘seditious conspiracy’ as another witness testifies

Trump says ‘treason.’ His fans invoke violence. How attacks against Schiff are escalating online.

This is incitement pure & simple. And when no one any longer fears the law we must all fear everyone.

Violent spoof video of Trump killing his critics shows how memes have reshaped politics

"No. No. No," sez Trump: "We were only trying to desensitize people to going out & killing our political opponents, that's all."

Perspective: If Trump doesn’t condone violence against journalists, he should stop inspiring it

****************************************************

Trump talks tough on Turkish economy, but actions so far fall short

What a surprise.

Trump's sanctions won't bite a vulnerable Turkish economy "Turkey's currency and stock market both rose Tuesday as investors breathed a sigh of relief that harsher measures were not imposed. Timothy Ash, emerging market strategist at Bluebay Asset Management, called the sanctions "minimal" and "window dressing," noting that the trade deal was years off in any case." Josef Braml, head of the Americas program at the German Council on Foreign Relations, said that Trump appears to be trying to get ahead of calls for sanctions from Congress. Braml said that much may depend on what kind of understanding Trump reached with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan before announcing he would withdraw U.S. troops from the area, giving Erdogan a free hand. "He didn't sell the Kurds for nothing," Braml said.

What To Watch For: Erdogan & staff booking a few nights over at Trump's properties in Turkey.

And now you know for how few dollars Trump sold the lives, land, hopes & culture of the Kurds of Syria, once one of America's best allies--But, of course, I wouldn't say Trump would sell his own mother for a dime (because, frankly, I just don't know whether Trump would wait for a buyer to go that high), but--

Trump has awarded G-7 summit to his Miami-area resort, the White House says

But, in Trump's defense: He's never read a book in his life, has he. So it's very unlikely that he has ever looked up 'self-dealing' in a dictionary.

Although... judging from Trump's unfamiliarity with the English language, it makes me wonder whether he might not be some Russian look-alike planted by Putin to replace the real Donald Trump, how long ago it might have been done (and how much Putin's paying Trump's kids to keep it quiet); and whether Putin has the real Donald Trump still alive down in the bowels of the Kremlin being fed corn fritters & vodka to keep him happy...

Turkey Agrees to Pause Fighting, but Not to Withdraw From Syria

Ya'know, I wonder if Trump has ever had his IQ tested. It's possible that he's an imbecile and no one's ever mentioned it in his entire life because of his money. His father certainly treated him like an imbecile: Instead of slapping him up the side of the head, like: "Hey, stupid! You just lost ONE MILLION DOLLARS! Who does that?!" Fred Trump simply gave Donny yet another couple of millions to play with: "And try not to lose these so quickly, my boy." [That's how The Donald lost that billion, you know.]

Sacha Baron Cohen Nails The Problem With Zuckerberg’s Freedom Of Expression Defense

This is only partly correct thinking, as it overlooks the fact that although Facebook is a private concern it has the power to unduly influence both government and national interests, and because of that, Zuckerberg should try to ONLY police and outlaw, say... only those posts/ads which overtly/suggestively promote violence and hate:

People specifically go to Facebook to express their opinions, not to order a plate of linguine. Therefore the problem with Cohen's metaphor is that Facebook is not a restaurant: The correct metaphor would be whether the owner of a fancy restaurant would be right to tell some customers who went to his restaurant and ordered a meal he wasn't happy to serve them "to get the f**k out of his restaurant"...? No doubt he could do it. But, should he do it? Would he be right doing it? [Zuckerberg’s Dilemma]

A benevolent dictator makes for an indolent populace too lazy to stand up for themselves and be counted. This is why (except perhaps for quite egregious cases of incitement) I oppose censorship: Even as crazy as they are, the answer to Trump's pernicious poisons and offensive speech is not censorship but to inspire the rising voices of the sane to come drown out Trump's vile delusions--to force the righteous, in the face of a challenge to their own interests & survival, to force the righteous to rise out of that indolence into which benevolent dictators hypnotize them--This is the root of democracy (which will never bear fruit as long as people think they have a powerful benevolent dictator claiming to defend and protect their interests). Dictators only protect their own interests, just like everybody else.

The one thing do I agree with Cohen on is that, yes, Zuckerberg is not the government, and as a private entity there would be no violation of The First Amendment if Facebook censored Trump itself or, say, flooded Trumps' many nutty assertions with company counterbalancing posts and ads. Although it is pretty clear that even this will not happen: Trump is buying ads on Facebook because he thinks they're effective, of course; and if Zuckerberg did that Trump would immediately stop running his ads on Facebook... and as a private company Zuckerberg runs his business to make money. So Zuckerberg will see no profit in playing the role of benevolent dictator. Sorry.

‘Keep Fighting’ — Twitter Critics Celebrate Victory After Trump Dumps Doral For G-7

Free speech doesn’t mean Facebook must run dishonest ads

Nice. If there is a way we can all agree something is a lie, or better still prove that it is a lie with facts which no one can possibly dispute, then yes. But, unfortunately, until we mortals become gods we are condemned to argue out our different opinions... or worse still: to fight each other over them. And that is something which we can and must definitely avoid.

Unfortunately most opinions, even when we ourselves believe they are in agreement with the truth, are quite often also called lies by those who, unlike us, do not agree with them: How we might discern truth from lie is one of the eternal dilemmas of mankind. And probably always will be.

This is why not just Giuliani but Barr, Mulvaney, Miller and every other cheap underling Trump has 'installed' in key positions of the American Government to facilitate his corruption must be brought before a Court of Law to answer for his/her own specific role in Trump's conspiracy to subvert the 2020 election and cheat his way to an undeserved victory.

Trump Has Spent $115 Million On Golf Trips -- Or 287 Years Of Presidential Salary

Donald Trump is a disgustingly hideous crass thief who has spent his entire life stealing from people right and left without regard to the harm, pain and grief he inflicts on his innocent victims--the textbook case of what invariably happens when a criminal is not prosecuted as early on as it's possible: The result os which is that he will always go on to much greater and greater crimes, finding in the law's unwillingness or inability to stop him confirmation of an egotistical belief that he is invulnerable to the law and "smarter than all the cops in the world."

Donald Trump And The Making Of A Predatory President

How all these prominent [so-called upstanding] citizens can sit at the same table with such a soulless criminal as Donald Trump, lending him [or selling him] prestige at the expense of the corruption it pours down on their shattering principles and toilet-flushing reputations (just only for the 'privilege' of staining themselves with an infamy they will surely have to live down all the days of their lives) is beyond me.

How Trump helps his supporters justify racism

And, if I could ask but one question of The Donald, it would be to drop-kick a baby on Fifth Avenue sometime (which seems to be about the only outrage he hasn't done yet for the entertainment of his Evangelical/hard core voters): I just want to see how much applause they would give him. And exactly how the Republicans explain it away as an act of compassion.

Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), who met with Trump at the White House on Thursday for lunch, said the president was defiant. “He just kept saying he did nothing wrong, he did nothing wrong,” Graham said in an interview. “He said it over and over.”

Actually, what The Donald said was: "I didn't do nothing, man. I didn't do nothing!" Immediately after he had turned on the TV show COPS playing: "Bad boy! Bad boy! Bad boy! Wa'cha gonna do? Wa'cha gonna do when they come for you?"

Sen J. Kennedy (R-LA) says that he "feels it's unconscionable" [that Pelosi in not a good tap dancer or something] but that he does not find it unconscionable in the least that Trump tried to rig our American election for President! And that pretty much says it all about the Republicans.

For aiding Trump’s abuse of power, the GOP deserves to be voted out of existence

A lot of people seem to be saying that "the jury has already acquitted Trump" (that his base is not moving but doubling down). But the jury is not Trump's unmoving Republican base alone [so do go ahead and feel free to call Trump's Republican base stupid, dumb, dupes, co-conspirators, or whatever other quite justified insults you'd like to throw at them]: Trump's Republicans do have the say as to whether Trump gets away with it or not--But that is not the same thing as saying that they are the jury: The jury are the American People.

The real jury are the American People. And if Trump's Republicans decide to stick with Trump then they shall all eventually find themselves sitting together at the dock to be judged along with him when they all at last face the American People, their ultimate jury, in the election. And right now Trump does not look anything remotely close to innocent in any of this.

When it comes to Ukraine, Trump’s alleged misdeeds go beyond quid pro quos

So, no: The trial in the senate will not be the political trial--it will be the trail on the evidence. And if the Senate Republicans decide to ignore the evidence they will be saying to the American People that they want to be complicit in Trump's scheme to fix their election.

That election it the one that will be the political trial, and that's when Trump and his enablers & co-conspirators will be judged politically.

History will judge us all thereafter.

Republicans’ Big Lie About Trump and Russia

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." --Joseph Goebbels

"A big lie (German: große Lüge) is a propaganda technique and logical trick (fallacy). The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone 'could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously'". [from the only best-selling book Trump ever read]

The president apparently believes he can weather an impeachment trial through sheer repetition of easily disproven falsehoods.

Witness testimony and records raise questions about account of Trump’s ‘no quid pro quo’ call

Trump’s big, ‘exonerating’ piece of Ukraine evidence takes a hit

But did The Donald listen? Obviously: No! He did not! [See: This is why Don Corleone wouldn't put Fredo in charge of his mafia.]

Barr’s handpicked prosecutor tells inspector general he can’t back right-wing theory that Russia case was U.S. intelligence setup

Barr doesn’t accept key inspector general finding about FBI’s Russia investigation

With all the evidence that has surfaced about Trump's attempts to rig the 2020 election and his extortion of Ukraine using American taxpayers' money as if it were his, one wonders why [so-called Attorney General of The United States] Bill 'Luca Brasi' Barr hasn't at least opened a preliminary investigation into the possibility that those crimes could have/might have been, you know: crimes?

After all, the Department of Justice [before 'Luca Brasi' Barr infiltrated it, of course] investigated [that little Mueller thing] Trump and found MONUMENTAL EVIDENCE of witness intimidation, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice--for which crimes, I imagine, Trump will be prosecuted once he's no longer president (although he probably can't imagine this). Not to mention all those election laws Trump & his mob broke... along with cheating everybody who ever worked for him or he ever did any business with, tax fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, falsifying legal documents, and lying to every court & legal authority in the book. Trump & his whole crooked family already got convicted of stealing from a charity--something for which people usually get sent up to years & years in prison, but Trump & his family got off with just a promise not to do it again!!! O, wouldn't it be wonderful if you could be a bank robber and when you get caught you get off with a simple promise to not rob any more banks? [Or what is Justice in America for?]

In any case, shouldn't 'Luca Brasi' Barr be impeached and prosecuted for dereliction of duty at the least?!

Trump’s Strongest Allies In Congress Don’t Care How History Will Remember Them

And that tells you everything you need to know about what all the Republicans there think of protecting their own reputations!

A good reputation is not unlike a downy feather stuck by a breeze to your nose tickling you with its precariousness--While a bad one is like a ghost of some vicious dog that's been too long dead now ever to again let go.

Sirs, reputation is what the cop tickets the car for--Character is only the wild pile of excuses its driver kicks up at the too patient cop: Character would be a nice thing to have, yes, always a good thing to have. But while character is many an ideal, reputation is life's one reality. For what was a man if but his unquenchable reputation? What is a man if but his life's reputation yet to be quenched?

Character is a mere choreography after all, ever self-made, always self-centered, faking it gracefully unseen across stages of Man's hidden aim silently (for his most private purposes performing perfectly), moving warped from one empty ideal to the next one (warped blindly). While a man's reputation is those steps he has danced noisily stumbling over the wooden old stages of his uncurtained performances revealed to us all. Guard therefore all of your possible steps and not one of your impossible speculations, Barr--And all you other Republicans there.

Impeachment exposes the widening gap between Republicans and the truth

O how the degradation of the Republicans inspires me unto greater & greater heights!

The cowardice of these Republicans can be succinctly expressed in one self-evident fact: They can be bought. For a man so frightened of losing his day job that he would sell out his country just to keep it is obviously somebody who can be bought for the right price. It's harder to imagine going up to any Democrat now and thinking he or she can be bought for even a quite solid price--Putin doesn't look like he's doing it. And yet the notion that many a Republican is in Putin's pocket isn't as far-fetched now: A lot of'em certainly make no bones about this (Trump especially).

One of the most curious things about this GOP is that these Republican sellouts don't seem to grasp the dangerous [to themselves] history of paranoid criminal leaders like Donald Trump: Notorious cruel criminal paranoids like Trump are even more likely to put a hit on their own henchmen than on anybody else outside their gang: Criminal leaders are almost invariably, exactly like Trump, warped paranoids who usually become leaders because they are pitiless cutthroats (like Trump) who usually grow to believe that their underlings & associates are always plotting against them [which, oddly enough, is usually necessarily true] and whether proven not are much quicker to stab'em in the back than to give them the benefit of a calmly considered defense--At least an honest [genuinely stable, unlike Trump] leader even if he finds an associate is plotting against him usually goes through some long [legal] process to set him aside. It's like these mindlessly childish Republicans imagine that their lickspittling will make them immune from Trump's paranoid wrath even AFTER suffering it themselves a number of times and seeing others like them time & time again thrown under the bus most unjustly by him!

Rudy Giuliani, William Barr, Pence, Nunes, Jordan, Ratcliffe, Pompeo, Lindsey Graham, McConnell, Kevin McCarthy, Scalise, Stefanik, Chris Stewart, Chris Collins, Doug Collins, John Neely Kennedy and so many other Republicans have all made themselves human garbage--and whether they were human garbage before, they have all now surely closed history's dumpster over their stinking heads with a clang.

Russian disinformation network said to have helped spread smear of U.S. ambassador to Ukraine

How in the Hell did the Republicans become the party of Russian propaganda in the United States?! That's what I'd like to know: Because what we have now is America and the Democrats on one side trying to make sure that the next election is carried out honestly & fairly. And then Republicans and Russia's disinformation networks on the other side trying to rig the 2020 election for Trump! Who will come out ahead? Russia and its Republican sellouts, or the United States of America?

Putin says allegations against Trump are 'completely fabricated'

Wonder what came first: This GOP talking point or this same identical Putin talking point? [I wonder if we will ever know.]

How Trump’s conversations with Putin overlapped with his emerging Ukraine conspiracy theories

Who could have possibly imagined that the Republican Party would become the anti-American mouthpiece of Russian misinformation & propaganda--for have they not assented with their silence when Trump calls the FBI, the CIA, the State Department and the Diplomatic cores "scum" implying Putin instead is the true friend & defender of American values like democracy!? Say it aloud and see just how insane it sounds. And yet it is the mantra of today's GOP and Putin's true pal Trump.

Trump Adviser Caught On Tape: Voter Suppression Key To GOP Battleground Efforts

Trump’s Defenders Think We’re Idiots

Sometimes everybody in the room knows the liar is lying but will play along with the lie right to his face because they too are getting a bit of something cut from the lie. And that's the state of the Trump Republicans these days. [So don't even for a brief moment believe them when they say they don't have any evidence that the lie's a lie: It's just evidence that they like the lie.].

A moderate Democrat sold his soul to save his hide. He got what he deserved.

A way for these reprehensible Republicans to still creepily save some face (but something which is apparently not in their nature to do) would be:

     The Perfect Divided Nation Compromise.

Senate Republicans could convict Trump for crimes which are certainly beyond dispute and yet permit him to run in 2020 so that he no longer has the authority to rig his own presidential election (which nothing short of making sure that he is NOT in office will prevent). And this will still allow the American voters to have the final word on whether they want him to continue on as their president, even so. [Don't hold your breath.]

Pelosi says House may withhold impeachment articles, delaying Senate trial

Absolutely! If the Senate Republicans have already indicated they will acquit Trump in spite of so much overwhelming proof of his crimes, then there is no point in sending them the articles of his impeachment: Certainly let Trump remain permanently impeached and face the 2020 election without the Senate Republicans' shameful planned 'vindication.'

Here’s how long Pelosi should hold onto the articles of impeachment

Mitch McConnell Blasts Process As ‘Rushed’ And ‘Unfair’

And Nancy Pelosi should wholeheartedly agree with poor Mitch 100% and immediately assure him that she will wait for the courts to complete their deliberations on all possible supplemental witnesses--only after which may the House and the Senate then proceed to set up a joint conference committee to carefully work out their differences over which witnesses must & should be heard from BEFORE the House then proceeds to hand over the articles of Trump's impeachment to the Senate for trial. It would certainly be a win-win situation for everyone; and a process with which I'm sure Trump and McConnell MUST agree.

Trump touts Putin speaking out against his impeachment

In Trump's defense: What higher authority on American Politics would Trump cite?

People Can't Believe Trump Thinks Putin's Support In Impeachment Fight Is A Good Thing

****************************************************

Trump rages at Christian magazine that called him ‘grossly immoral,’ but still finds evangelical support “The fact is, no President has ever done what I have done for Evangelicals, or religion itself!” wrote Trump.

Although I believe the publication said that the reason they wanted him out was because he was ‘grossly immoral,’ and not because he had not done enough for the Evangelicals: As I understand it all the Evangelicals that Trump bought are staying bought.

[So Trump tears babies from their mothers' arms; is a serial adulterer; debases & insults the living & the dead alike--war heroes & their families; does all he can to cheat on his own election; steals cash from charities, and from everyone who works for him or he's ever been in business with; boasts of his tax frauds; takes the side of Putin's Russia against the entire American Establishment; spews out Goddamns with every curse coming out of his mouth but, hey, he does say 'Merry Christmas!']

I believe all the CT magazine was trying to say was that the Evangelicals need an anti-Christ who won't be as immoral as Trump.

Now, as the Senate Republicans prepare to take an oath to be impartial jurors in their trial of Trump, I suppose McConnell, Graham & all the other disciples of Trump will be spitting on the Bible this time instead of placing their hands on it. [And all the "God-fearing" Evangelicals in the United States will again applaud & approve yet one more blasphemy naturally, you know: for the sake of expediency.]

   "Senate Republicans Declare Trump: Innocent As Sin!"

[Well, it's very likely that Trump when tried by the Senate Republicans will require a new category of verdict just for himself and I imagine that this one will be as good as any.]

Could Democrats impeach Trump twice? They might have to.

Were I a betting man, though, I'd bet one shiny nickel that McConnell will not quickly agree to a resolution (and no matter how much Trump may push for it) because, frankly, I very much suspect McConnell and the Senate Republicans are not as eager as they claim to have Trump win a second term as GOP dictator.

Senate Republicans Are Bathed in Shame

This is sheer insanity, political suicide on the part of these penny wise but dollar fool Republican Senators: The 2016 election Trump won in the electoral college he lost in the popular vote by over two million votes--America naturally normally leans towards the Democrats. And every day that passes, as more and more evidence of Trump's criminality drips out, more and more voters (Independents and even Republicans) come to understand that their children's future rests in great part with making sure that Trump doesn't become a South American dictator over them. Do these Republicans senators really want to hand Bernie Sanders the powers they are formalizing for the sake of Trump's brief presidency?

I think the most fitting thing the next Democrat who is elected president should do on the first day in office is use this royal power with which the Republicans are now endowing the presidency to sign an executive order abolishing the electoral college.

Sanders Stands By Comments On Fidel Castro, Says He’s Been Critical Of All ‘Regimes’

In Cold War travels, Bernie Sanders found much to admire behind enemy lines. Now that’s a problem for his campaign.

Bernie Sanders and Fidel? Well, I was 12 years old and in Cuba after Fidel Castro came to power and at some point he said something in a speech that anybody who knew how to read and write should run out and teach those who didn't. And because Fidel was 'our' demigod, because 'our' demigod's word was law in Cuba; and because I knew how to read & write, I immediately rushed out to try to find people I could teach--In my search I eventually ended up in a bar full of drunks & winos asking them whether anybody in there would like to learn how to read & write. And if it hadn't been for some guy who told the rest of'em my heart was in the right place [even if I myself wasn't] I might've ended up with a bucket of beer poured over my head--That was the Fidel Castro original push for universal literacy in Cuba which Bernie Sanders finds so inspiring: It was the madness of a dictator who blabbed so much for hours & hours that he eventually said something like that and sent the entire country out in a stampede to enforce his madness. It was not the systematic pursuit of universal literacy which a normal country might have tried to put into place. And it was not until much later that more professional people in Castro's regime began to implement his 'notion' in a more systematic manner primarily because it involved forced communist indoctrination.

But, as well, Fidel Castro almost immediately began murdering people. Shooting them live on television. And I can testify that as a 12-year-old I saw that with my own eyes: They would drag some poor soul before him and Fidel Castro would ask him who he was. "Oh, I was a police lieutenant in charge of such-and-such district." Fidel would turn to a faithful cadre of followers (like Bernie's bunch), unquestionably assembled there for that specific purpose, and he would suddenly ask them what they thought "we" should do with the guy. Upon which they would all chant: "Paredon! Paredon! Paredon!" Then the victim of this "reality show" would be stood up against the wall and shot, live, right there in TV, immediately--no trial, no appeal, no exculpating evidence, no lawyer, no reprieve, not even a last word to his family. Just immediate mindless murder.

And why Bernie Sanders should be praising Fidel for his "literacy push for communist indoctrination" instead of condemning him for his brutal, mindless murders... is absolutely beyond me.

NOTE that the push for universal literacy in Cuba predates Castro. In the 50s newly college-graduated teachers were routinely sent to teach in the countryside before earning a teaching position in a 'regular' classroom; and literacy was nation-wide promoted as one of the most patriotic duties of a Cuban. So it is a lie that Castro started the universal literacy push in Cuba. What he did do was drive people crazy with blind turns & sudden tendencies towards extremist stampedes (like the one I was involved in above); while the real reason for his "universal education" campaign was nothing more than communist indoctrination--Something which I myself escaped only because my mother pulled me out of school and soon thereafter took me with her to live in Miami... some 58 years ago now.
