Tulsa Air National Guard base construction project on chopping block to fund Trump's wall

Projects at three military facilities in Oklahoma could be cut to fund President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall after his national emergency declaration in February.
An $8 million small arms range at the Oklahoma Air National Guard base in Tulsa, a $16 million fire rescue center at Altus Air Base and a $7 million diesel system at the McAlester Army Ammunition Plant face cuts as the Pentagon looks to fund the wall.

Because as we all know, a Fake Wall is always more important than actually protecting the US....

Waters:  You may leave any time you wish.

Mnuchin:  I don't understand what you mean.

Repeated 3 times.

So the guy who is in charge of the US Treasury and all that entails is stumped by a sign on the wall that says;

EXIT



Bonus!   He says, aren't you supposed to hit the gravel against the desk thing...??

Video from the London event, which was hosted by Stephen Colbert, shows Obama made the comment after Colbert said, “America is like a teenager.”

“We are a teenager, we talked about this, we’re like a teenage country,” Obama, 55, agreed.

“And we’re confused ’cause our body is changing,” joked Colbert, 54, prompting Obama’s reply:

“We’re changing all over the place. And we come from a broken family. We’re a teenager, where we’re a little unsettled and having good parents is tough. Sometimes you spend weekends with divorced dad and that feels like it’s fun but then you get sick — that’s what America’s going through. We’re kind of living with divorced dad right now.”

I love Michele Obama but I really hate that she said that.  That trope needs to die.  I'm a divorced dad that that tries my damnedest. I don't need the additional societal expectation that I just don't care what my kids do.  The comparison doesn't even make sense.  Trump is more like Uncle Touchy's puzzle basement.

Summary - almost 'verbatim' (?);

Justice department rules will not allow us (the Mueller report group) to say the President committed crimes. But rules DO allow us to tell you if he did NOT commit crimes. We are NOT saying that.



From the "law and order" right wing extremist base....<crickets>.    Of course...

I know you don't really have much concern about the rule of law where Trump is involved...this is for everyone else...


Literal Trump quote - when told a special prosecutor had been appointed - with my own editing to keep it clean:

 “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f***ed.”

There are two "worst case" scenarios that could happen to this country right now;  Trump resigns.  Or Trump is impeached.  Either way, Pence is President and pardons Trump of everything Federal.  State of New York will still nail him, but it would be a travesty of justice for the Feds to miss the opportunity to try him in Federal court.

It has not been the end of his presidency, but it has come to consume it. Although the resulting two-year investigation ended without charges against Mr. Trump, Mr. Mueller’s report painted a damning portrait of a White House dominated by a president desperate to thwart the inquiry only to be restrained by aides equally desperate to thwart his orders.

And at least 12 incidents of obstruction of justice.


Rule of Law has now been shown to be the farce poor people have known about for a long, long time.  And so far every single Republican is complicit with the criminal activity outlined in a wide variety of venues.  Every  Single  One.


Having said that, I hope they are not stupid enough to try to impeach.  Set our sights on the next election and get him out.  If he were impeached, Pence would take over and immediately pardon him.  Or if Trump did resign, same thing.  Then he skates scott free....   Well, except for New York State AG.

That would be the worst possible scenario.  Worse than another couple years...
