        If not RBG by then, Clarence Thomas for sure next year as he wants to retire under a MAGA Administration!

          Hey, maybe both !!

          I remember way back when, when Justice Thomas was confirmed. Talk about a circus! I did some reading and research on him. My Dad and I were talking about the confirmation process and about some of Justice Thomas’s writings. My thoughts back then, and they have since been confirmed, was that Justice Thomas would turn out to be one of the best and most conservative Supreme Court Justices ever. I should have written that down, signed it, dated it, and made a bet somewhere!

        I’m sure RBG is chomping at the bit to unload on Twitter and cash in on that predictable MSNBC gig. First in history. Lots of firsts, I suppose.

      Excellent link, thanks snarky.

      From the article:

      “Has Trump bent subordinates over the Resolute Desk to use them as his own personal humidor and then committed perjury? No, that was Bill Clinton’s style.

      Has Trump weaponized the IRS against the American people, left four Americans to die in Benghazi, run guns to Mexican drug lords, and spied on the national media? No, that was Barack Obama’s style.

      Has Trump politicized a funeral to fuel his petty grudges? No, that’s the McCain style.

      Has Trump launched a war of choice with no endgame? No, that was George W. Bush’s style.

      Has Trump been caught off guard by no less than the fall of the Soviet Union and 9/11; did he sucker us into an endless war because his intelligence was junk? No, that’s the Deep State’s style.

      Has Trump laundered money through a law firm to hire a foreigner to approach the Russians so they can fill a dossier with lies as a means to rig an election? No, that’s Hillary’s style.

      Has Trump lied to obtain warrants so he can abuse his power to surveill and spy on a presidential campaign? No, that’s the FBI’s style.

      Has Trump called for violence? No, that’s CNN’s style.

      Does Trump oversee an institution riddled with rapists? No, that’s Hollywood’s style.

      Is Trump in charge of an institution that covers up for and enables sexual predators? No, that’s the establishment media’s style.

      Does Trump stand silent as his audience boos rape victims? No, that’s Jake Tapper’s style.

      Those guilty of the above want to overturn an election because Trump refuses to take their crap, enjoys cheeseburgers, fires off tweets that haven’t been focus-grouped, wants to kill the monstrous Bashar al-Assad, protects our border, and might have yodeled in a porn star’s gully 13-years-ago.”

    It seems like the Dems are going for it, with the help of their media, are going all out claiming the President is crazy. Is this the Deep State Doubling Down maneuver? They’re doing all they can to create a caricature that is so opposite of what is actually happening;

    all that comes to mind is that first press conference where the President looked right into the cameras and said, “the news is fake, the leaks are real”

    and to see the Democrat Party going all out to sabotage a duly elected President and the agenda his voters elected him to do. That’s another comment that comes to mind, Andrew Breitbart when he said “War!”

    Are we witnessing the first outwardly open skirmish?

    Thank you TreeHouse for being here, a refuge of sanity. I just don’t know what I’d do without being able to visit here and read and listen to everyone’s posts and comments. An island of sanity.

      They floated the 25th amendment nonsense right after the inauguration. My liberal friends had this crazy idea that both the President & Vice would be tossed and Lyin’ Ryan would magnanimously step down in favor of Hillary. I don’t know which liberal clown was pushing such nonsense (probably Rachel Maddow) but my friends posted endlessly about it way back when.

          I suspect I have a more peaceful life than you — started about three years ago with dropping all my dumb, demented Dem friends AND family members while replacing them with sane alternatives. I just got tired of avoiding politics to keep the peace, it wasn’t worth it to deny a big part of myself in the process. Will never go back to the old life.

    FTA “But now, based on Ohr’s own account in a closed-door congressional interview and other contemporaneous documents, congressional investigators have learned that Ohr made his first contact with the FBI about Trump-Russia collusion evidence in late July and early August 2016. And his approach was prompted by information he got from his friend, the former British intelligence agent Steele…The discovery is one of several key pieces of evidence emerging in recent weeks that explain how the FBI probe pivoted suddenly from looking at the conduct of Trump adviser George Papadopoulos to consuming a document now infamously known as the Steele dossier.”

    The “pivot” shows how disparate the deep state was to destroy Trump! They were after him from the very beginning and there has been no letup! Bruce Ohr you committed treason. Godspeed President Trump!

      “Ohr made his first contact with the FBI about Trump-Russia collusion evidence in late July and early August 2016. And his approach was prompted by information he got from his friend, the former British intelligence agent Steele”

      I like Solomon, but this is unintentional bullcrap from a good reporter.

      Ohr’s wife, the Beautiful Nellie Ohr was working with Fusion GPS as of 2015. Let me repeat: Ohr’s wife was working with Fusion GPS as of 2015.

      Solomon is missing a critical point here, which is: do the freaking math, man.

      He goes on to write:
      “Ohr told Congress the information related by Steele that day so concerned him that it prompted him to reach out to the FBI and pass it along, even though he knew he had a conflict of interest, given his wife’s work for Fusion on the same project.”

      Yes, given his wife’s work for Fusion on the same project… WHICH DATED WAY PRIOR TO THE JULY 30 BREAKFAST. Why ties all these dates strictly to July 30? It shold be obvious to any old idiot that Ohr didn’t wake up on July 31st, have breakfast with Steele and exclaim “OMG!!! WE HAVE TO START AN INVESTIGATION PRONTO!!!!”.

      Smell test = fail.

      I wonder if Bruce Ohr knew that his wife got a HAM radio license… TOTALLY OUT OF THE BLUE… in May 2016. I’mmmm thhhinkiiinnnn’ hheeee diiiiiiddd.

    Judge Kavanaugh finally got a word in at the end of Koon pretending he was so smart and troubled by some of his answers.
    Kavanaugh gave it to him in a response of 2 bullet points consisting of @ 3 words and a look which said it all.

    Minnesota Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar appears to me throughout these last three days as a reasonably-sensed minority Senator and I respect her very much for that. Not to say she agreed with Judge Kavanaugh, but that she approached her council of him with curtesy and intelligence and not theatrics.

    Senator Blumenthal is now querying with his usual bluster. I just don’t get where that gets us.


    • Skippy says:

      Well Senator Klobuchar just lost some of my respect. During this 5 minute break for all, the good Senator is surrounded by and yucking it up with Senators Coon, Blumenthal and Durbin.

      Too bad for Klobuchar she didn’t Stand Apart with her approach/words and person.

    I don’t believe the anonymous author of the Op-ed is employed by the administration. I wish they would stop giving it legitimacy be even acknowledging it. Put the onus on the NYT. If they want the traction, they’ll have to come up with more than “anonymous.”

        Judge Kavanaugh will be a tremendous adjunct to the SCOTUS! I watched the entire three days, listened closely, took notes on both sides, and recognized as close to an unbiased candidate as possible. What a wonderful human being Judge Kavanaugh is! His family is so fortunate as are we as Americans. Simply amazing.

          I watched as much as I could too, Judge Kavanaugh is amazing, thoughtful, respectful to all the senators and the way he could recite cases from years back almost immediately perhaps has a photographic memory.
          Also near end of hearing today, one Dem Senator said something about author of book if Kavanaugh knew her and he replied yes I clerked with her.😄 Winning!

      I was enthralled just listening to J. Kavanaugh expound on the law. I really thought that some of the Senators began to comprehend his sheer intelligence and asked legal issues that they really wanted legal advise on and understanding of the issue. I was quite taken by this man intelligence, humbleness, good will. He is a real gem.

    I have been watching the confirmation hearing. I’m not sure why, but I am kind of concerned that Kavanaugh may be a potential swing vote in the model of Kennedy. I can’t remember specific answers that made me think this, just some of the things he has said has given me that idea. Anyone else get that feeling, or have I just come down with a bout of battered conservative syndrome?

    My cousin Jack. Vietnam Vet. Marine. He was a Gunnery Sargeant. I am clueless about guns and ordinance, but as a business person, I do understand the supply chain. He told me that at the start of the Vietnam War, we issued the M14 rifle to our soldiers that fired a .308 caliber bullet with a range of 1000 yards with a reliable barrel and stock that was Superior to the NVA’s AK47. Then Kennedy’s Defense Secretary, Robert MacNamara changed the Government Issue to the MM16 with half , (500 yard), the range, with a 22 caliber bullet, and a faulty barrel and stock. We then became outgunned. The MM14 was manufactured by the Springfield Armory and the MM16 was manufactured by someone who made a lot of politicians rich and a lot of soldiers Dead. Unfortunately, the same is happening today, and General Mattis us not serving the troops well by continuing this policy if procuring inferior weaponry. Finally, the MM14 and our Superior M60 Machine Gun share the Same Ammunition, creating an economy of scale that would save the taxpayer Millions of Dollars and give our Soldiers Superior Weaponry.
