Still a conservative

As a lad, I distributed Goldwater campaign material. Since then, have steadily moved further to the Right. Detest what Trump’s done to the GOP.

  1. Riling up low-life supporters to threaten the safety and lives of witnesses, jurors, judges and prosecutors and their families - as has been done before - isn’t free speech. Not a First Amendment issue.
  2. St Paul on the last days: “People will be self-centered and lovers of money, proud, haughty, abusive. . . callous, implacable, slanderous, licentious, brutal. . . traitors, reckless, conceited. . . they make a pretense of religion but deny its power.” Sound like anyone we know?
  3. Trump’s dance card getting filled quickly. The federal 2020 election case is now scheduled to start on the same day as Georgia prosecutors have asked for the state trial there to begin. Maybe a judge will let Trump send John Barron or John Miller to represent him at one of them.
  4. "America itself is no accident of geography or political science, but part of God's plan to preserve and extend the sacred fire of human liberty. . . my optimism comes not just from my strong faith in God, but from my strong and enduring faith in man." Ronald Reagan, before the GO
  5. A warning from a Trump senior adviser: “you will NOT SCAM DONORS” That’s OUR specialty.
  6. Trump posed in the bellicose defiance persona he assumed when he was combating STDs in the 60s: “It is a dangerous world out there — it's scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.” Only now he’s a gre
  7. Trump claims the election was stolen and he’s going to present irrefutable evidence proving it. Does MAGA ever wonder why, if he has such powerful proof, he’s not disclosed it in almost three years? And why did it take indictments for felonies for him to make his evidence public?
  8. So did Tucker Carlson get around to telling Trump he’s a demonic force, a destroyer and that Tucker hates him?
  9. Donald, I really appreciate your being arrested for me tomorrow. Now will you please go to jail for me? Immediately will be fine. Thanks so much. oxoxox
  10. For the cult, barely speaking English is a credential. Shows he’s not part of that despised elite.
  11. On Jan 6 Mike Pence told his lead SS agent, “I'm not getting in the car, Tim. I trust you, Tim, but you're not driving the car. If I get in that vehicle, you guys are taking off. I'm not getting in the car.” Is this why he wouldn’t get in the car?
  12. 91-count Don has found another way to avoid paying Rudy. And it guarantees Giuliani won’t flip. Not before September 7, anyway.
  13. Looks like those more than five dozen other court cases magically disappeared. OK. So with such overwhelming evidence, why did it take Trump three years to begin proving his case? And why only after the prosecutions moved to the front burner? Some coincidence.
  14. We know that Trump will make a show of his arrest Thursday. A big smile for his mug shot and maybe he’ll arrive in a Superman outfit.
  15. Vivek Ramaswamy: “I think it is legitimate to say how many police, how many federal agents, were on the planes that hit the Twin Towers.” Nice effort, dude, but you’ve got a long way to go to outnut the self-styled stable genius.
  16. Trump lawyer John Eastman had to be granted a delay in his disbarment trial in California so he could surrender to authorities in Georgia today. Only the best people are good enough for Trump.
  17. Happy Tuesday to everyone who doesn’t need to surrender himself/herself at the Fulton County courthouse later this week.
  18. Trump and Vladimir sitting in a tree. . . Well, Trump did say he was the apple of Putin’s eye.
  19. Saw a Fox News talking head say that Trump having to turn himself in at an Atlanta jail is humiliating. Humiliating for whom? Certainly not Trump, who has no discernible sense of shame or embarrassment.
  20. Trump loves to call others crooked. Imagine a guy who has four indictments and 91 felony charges against him and has had to pay many millions for sexual abuse, misusing charity funds, and running a scam university calling other people crooked. Classic projection.
