No, but one of two things has happened:

1) Morality has disappeared in which case we were here to see the end of it, and it's up to us to hold our own morality and rise above
2) Morality hasn't disappeared, and there will be great shame on all of these people some day


Hopefully #2.

I wonder how much #2 it will take to fix all the #1. Especially if he gets another term.

And now Trump goes to NATO, flaps his gums, pisses off their long term allies, (especially France) makes a stupid comment about trade with China, and the Dow takes a 400 point nose dive. Attaboy Donny.

Remember how Trump likes to brag about how America and the office of the presidency are now 'respected' throughout the world?

He got a reminder that that is not necessarily so.

From: https://theweek.com/speedreads/882138/watch-nato-leaders-british-princess-apparently-mock-trump-politely-palace-reception
Leaders at the NATO 70th anniversary summit in London gathered for a reception at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday....apparently discussing President Trump. No one mentions him by name, CBC's Power & Politics said, "but they seem to be discussing his lengthy impromptu press conferences from earlier in the day." And they are clearly laughing.

Ok, here is a weird dream. I woke up early this morning, and since I had recorded the judicial hearing from yesterday I started to play that. After almost 2 hours (Goldman was giving his opening testimony) I fell asleep.

In my dream I was part of some preparatory meeting for a trial/hearing. There were a large group of us discussing the upcoming event and doing things like mock speeches, etc. My role was not a lawyer or witness, but rather I appeared to be taking notes. Then in my dream I fell asleep (I guess recursive dreaming), and when I woke up there were many more pages (2-3 dozen) in my notebook. I was puzzled, because the pages were all drawings. Most were like courtroom sketches, but more about recreation of what happened based on testimony rather than the actual trial. They were very good quality sketches, most pencil sketches but a couple were full colour. I was puzzled because both in real life, and I suppose in my dream life, I have zero artistic talent.

This meeting was being held in an outdoor setting, which jives with my real life (and assumed dream life) because I am often outside both when alone or in groups (canoeing, around a campfire, etc.). It of course doesn't seem realistic for a preparatory meeting for a trail/hearing, but then I have never been part of one so what do I know. The group started with maybe 8-10 of us, and grew over time to a couple of dozen or more. The leader of the group was in a military uniform (fatigues, not dress), and there might have been a couple of others in military wear but most were in civies.

As things started to wrap up I asked the leader what role he wanted me to play, perhaps because I was wondering if he noticed me doze off during the meeting. He began to answer me, but got diverted onto another discussion so I never found out. Most of us adjourned to another location, also outside but instead of being in the middle of the woods was near a building I couldn't make out. Several people were in a lineup near a corner of the building, and slowly going around out of sight. I joined that subset and as I got around the corner I noticed they were getting coffee at a drive through, although they were all walking and not in cars.

It was about then that I woke up for real. The hearing was still playing on my television, although we were now over 4 hours into the hearing. I rewound to the place I dozed off, which I soon found. I could clearly recall up to where Goldman was giving his deposition, and around when he started playing tape of Sondland things got fuzzy so I knew about where I fell asleep. It was now daylight, so I got up and don't know much more of the real judicial hearing.

Another day, another shooting in the US of A. This time in Jersey City. I wonder if Trump got winged in one of those if the gun laws might get looked at? Nah, LaPierre would never allow that, what was I thinking.

And we see Donny kissing a little Russian ass again by inviting Lavrov into the Oval Office. I didn't see any high ranking Ukranian's there. I guess that's a pretty good hint as to who Trump is relying on to help him win a second term.

Trump opines he fears impeachment lest he be remembered in some fashion similar to Bill Clinton. Rest assured Mr. Trump, you will likely only be remembered by the placement of your orange tinted face in the Oxford dictionary alongside the word "ignominy".

The only purpose this whole exercise is to prove the Entire GOP is lock step behind Trump. They have to own his behaviour.

If the US voter (in the only 6 states that matter) is cool with that, then it is what it is.

But short of someone in Trump's inner circle in the past 6 month breaking ranks and testifying, this whole process is going to go as expected.

Ok, it happened again. Another dream, similar circumstances. Woke up early, put on the recording of first night of judicial committee debates on articles of impeachment. I fell asleep* rather quickly, Nadler had just begun his opening remarks. I know I missed Collins remarks because he would have followed, but I don't know if they influenced my dreams. I only remember a little bit of the dream, and when I woke up Gohmert was just wrapping up about an hour into the proceedings.

In my dream, I was in my house and this guy in a suit was talking loudly. I knew the subject matter was impeachment, but the rest is fuzzy. He was going on about being a victim. I finally got fed up and tried to shout at him to "shut the frig up" (you little baby) but I couldn't speak very well because of a sore throat (no I don't have one at the moment).

I watched about another hour after waking up, and that included Gaetz and Jordan so I wonder if Gohmert was worse. Sometime I might go back and see what really influenced me just for a laugh.

Apparently Trump has set a new record: he broke his previous record for tweets in a day by sending out 124. His previous was just over a hundred. And of course the current flurry happened to have a little something to do with IMPEACHMENT! He's not happy.

Yet he calls the Democrats Do Nothing.

We need a Democrat that can keep up that level of twitting.

Trump's little fingers I'm sure are helpful for all that keyboard activity. Oh but don't tell him I said that or he'll be tweeting me.

Between Trump's support for the likes of Stephen Miller, who is a known white supremacist/racist, and Matt Bevin who recently pardoned over 400 criminals including child rapists and murderers as he left the Kentucky governors office, we can see what type of scumbags the current potus likes to have near him. Please send my "love" to the similar types over at "hillbillyville" who still support the likes of this guy. BC especially.

In all, the former governor signed off on 428 pardons and commutations since his loss to Democrat Andy Beshear, according to The Courier-Journal. The paper notes, "The beneficiaries include one offender convicted of raping a child, another who hired a hit man to kill his business partner and a third who killed his parents."
