Sondland just wrecked the Republicans today. Even Ken Starr said the GOP needs to take that walk to the Whitehouse like the did for Nixon.

Hmmmm.... I don't think so.  They are abject liars, don't forget.  So they can still create another level of lie...

So far it's.... Sondland didn't actually HEAR anything from Trump so he was just wrong, or didn't understand or maybe he heard it from Rudy G who hasn't flipped yet, and anyway the funds were being held because they were still investigating the Ukraine PM.

Of course all of these things will fall apart one by one, but by that time the corrupt American public will have been bored to death so will not see a need to impeach.  Rudy might still go to jail though.

Or I could be wrong too - hey I'm not trying to predict with certainty here

Trump digs out his Sharpie yet again to continue his buffoonery by scribbling, and then shouting, some notes on the WH lawn in response to Sondland's current/ongoing testimony.
Here's a reference that shows an actual image of the notes.

Its so weird... Trump is often quite incoherent: messing up words, failing to actually put together complete sentences, etc. You would figure that it was partly a result of speaking "off the cuff", but here he has actually taken the time to actually write out stuff before hand, and he still sounds like a buffoon.

I guess we should conclude that he who walks like a buffoon, talks like a buffoon, scribbles Sharpie notes like a buffoon must, ergo.......
Seriously though I have been wondering for some time now if he is not perhaps suffering some form of early onset dementia or some other similar malady that keeps the synapse's from firing properly. The surprise visit to Walter Reed Hospital just recently got me wondering more about that. Or is it simply that all this impeachment chatter pointed at him has fired up his narcissistic anger to a point of in-coherency. Stay tuned.

Hey just a reminder of what could be an interesting documentary coming up: "All The Presidents Lies" CNN this Sunday, 9pm eastern. With the multitude of material available for such an expose, I'll be interested to see how they prioritize. I wonder if the far righter s over at "the swamp" will be tuning in.

Oops, now it turns out another of Trump's right hand men is reported to have also held meetings with Ukraine officials to dig up dirt on Biden.
The plot sickens:

 Lev Parnas, the Soviet-born businessman whose involvement in helping the president's personal attorney seek out kompromat on Joe Biden in Ukraine is at the center of an impeachment inquiry, is reportedly prepared to testify to Congress about Rep. Devin Nunes meeting with a Ukrainian official as part of the same dirt-digging mission.

Nunes, the top ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, has been a staunch defender of President Trump throughout impeachment hearings.

I wonder if tomorrow mid morning, an aide walked into the Oval Office and found Trump slumped face first into his half eaten stack of burgers and half drunk dozen Cokes (RIP Donald) how long would it take his replacement (forget Pence) to bring this level of government back on track and actually get something accomplished beyond trying to deflect the latest scandal. One item I can imagine being high on the list would be shutting down the "love affairs" with such people as Fat Kim, Putin, MBS, Duterte, etc.

CNN is saying one of Rudy's gangsters told that Nunes was in the loop !  He's saying he's going to sue CNN.

And I noticed some clips online of FOX saying absolute falsehoods like "Sondland exonerates Trump".  FOX and CNN are now ideological vessels.   The last time the press was like this there was political violence.  Thanks Putin.

It absolutely boggles my mind that a POTUS can illegally drop bombs on other countries while murdering countless human beings with literally no legal consequences, but when they threaten to blackmail a foreign leader with foreign aid money or lie about having oral sex with an intern they can get forcefully removed from office and thrown in jail or at the very least bring an entire presidency to its knees.

Today I give a middle finger to Donald J Trump but also remember the millions that have been killed for cheap gas in my tank, Vietnamese "freedom", and other exciting ventures.

Lev Parnas' lawyer claims his client is willing to testify under oath that Rep. Devin Nunes met with a Ukranian official to dig up dirt on Bidens. There's that damn quid pro quo thing rearing it's ugly head again.

Two top navy officials, including the secretary, threaten to quit over Trump's meddling (pardoning) the criminal conviction against Edward Gallagher. Boy the walls seem to be closing in from a myriad of angles. Get that Sharpie going Donny.

CNN is an ideological vessel like FoxNews. That sounds a lot like the Hillary is as bad as Trump lines people fell for during the election. Amazing they still work.

Trump seems to have discovered this phenomena that if you repeat a story enough times (even if it's all BS) at least some people will eventually believe it. And that can get you elected in the under the US system.

That was a Nazi technique - the "Big Lie".  LBJ also used it, in a nomination election in Texas against Coke Stevenson he accused his opponent of being a socialist, which was not true, and just kept repeating it.

It's a scary concept, especially in this day and age of so much fake news. One need only to tune into Fox news and the flow is almost endless. Don'r forget to tune into "All The Presidents Lies" tomorrow.
