The NYT Op-ed is basically a senior WH official admitting they've staged a coup "for the good of the country" because Trump is insane. Cowards. Say this publicly, invoke the 25th and get Pence to do your dirty tax cuts.

Pence is as Orwellian as they come, we just dont hear it over the noise of Trump.

There's noise on the internet that Pence may have written that. The writer at the very least used the little used term "lodestar", which has been found in many Pence speeches going back to at least 2001. The writer either is Pence or he used that term to deflect suspicion from himself by using it.

If Woodward's account is true, we already have a palace coup underway in the White House. That may be unlawful while being in the best interests of our country. Time will tell and history will judge the Trump administration.

This same sort of thing supposedly happened in the last couple of years of Reagan.  His dementia was getting worse, and the white house was basically running by proxy.

The difference being Reagan hadnt already lost it to this extent at the campaign stage.


“There’s a secret group of people within the White House actively working to curb President Trump, which is wild, because this means this whole time we’ve been dealing with the watered-down version of Trump,” Noah quipped.
“You’re telling me that this is the better version?” he added. “Like I thought this was the peak of crazy, this is Diet Trump?"

Trump supporter - in the prime seat section right behind the Pedophile in Chief - blows her nose on the flag of the United States of America!!



Well, at least she didn't take a knee in protest...that's gotta be better, right..??

No surprise there.  Those people are not just wiping the nose with the flag, but their backsides with the entire ideal and implementation of the United States of America.

In fairness, 'Snowflake' may not be at fault, seeing how she was raised by animals!

Oh, wait...I shouldn't insult animals that badly - they never did anything to deserve that strong a reprobation!



Apparently Plaid Boy on the left got kicked out for making faces...haven't had the chance to watch that yet.

I think Don Lemon interviewed him last night.  If I was reading correctly he was just seventeen years old?

Newly revealed documents show the Trump administration took nearly $10 million away from FEMA and other federal agencies to apparently pay for immigration detention centers. A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security, the agency which FEMA is a part of, said under no circumstances was any disaster relief funding transferred from FEMA to immigration enforcement efforts.

...but we did such a great job in Puerto Rico.

Didn't LBJ try that to pay for the war in Vietnam, causing hyper inflation in the early 70s? I think interest rates were nearly 20% when Nixon  enacted wage and price controls. Imagine a Republican even proposing that now.

I remember high interest rates in the late 70's and left over into the early 80s.  I felt lucky to get a 13% car loan at the Credit Union.  But... I was also getting double digit interest on my CDs after I got enough money to buy some.
