THANK YOU

My thanks to all for the good thoughts for my wife.  She is doing well, and we shall be back in Chapel Hill tomorrow, where I can devote my full attention to the unfolding disster of the Trump presidency.  I just gave sme more money to Jon Ossof's run for Congress in Georgia.  We need to start racking up some wins.

Now that the health scare is behind you, I hope you're permitting yourself to indulge in the Schadenfreude around the latest developments in T***pland. Yes, it's definitely too early to gloat too much. These people remain extremely dangerous, and it could all end in a nuclear fireball yet. But who couldn't feel a twinge of satisfaction seeing a baggy-eyed and worn-down Kellyanne Goebbels being grilled by Matt Lauer this morning? As your son Tobias wrote on Facebook, her deflect-and-distract routine is falling apart before our eyes.

It really is a remarkable display of tenacity. Poor Kellyanne, the real Kellyanne, seems to be fading fast, but the parasitic demon that latched onto her soul is stronger than she is, and can keep the gears on that chatter-box turning indefinitely.

So glad to hear she's better. I wish you both all the best.

I tried to donate but can't from abroad

Here is a list of 21 elections taking place in 2017, mostly state house and senate elections: https://www.flippable.org/upcoming-elections/

We're glad the health scare was a false alarm, of course. Welcome home.
Already, senator Roy Blunt has called for gen. Mike Flynn to testify before the Senate Intelligence Oversight Committee as to what he discussed with contacts in Moscow and with Russians in the U.S. Blunt deserves vigorous support in this. We need to know whether members of Trump's team were undercutting U.S. foreign policy during the Obama administration, and who else was involved. That general Flynn has resigned is good; that general Flynn kept his security clearances while this was unfolding is bizarre; that general Flynn gets deposed under oath is of grave importance to our republic.
We should all be urging our senators to to back Blunt in this. This is not a partisan fight. This is the security of the United States.

Glad to hear that your wife is doing well now.

I expect that we’ll be seeing more of this—the Republican congress investigating the Trump Administration. Of course, it will be nothing like what the Democrats would do if they were in the majority, but I don’t think the entire majority will be rolling over and playing dead.

They are in the same bind now that they were in during the election: if they oppose Trump, they will incur the wrath of their Trumpista constituents. But if, as many expect, Trump’s policies will fail, his boasts will be seen as empty, and his approval ratings will hit bottom, they don’t want to be tied to him.

The one I’m waiting for his McCain. He understandably despises Trump, who continues to double down on his claim that McCain, because he was a POW, is a loser. McCain has just been re-elected for six years. He’ll be 86 when his term is up and is unlikely to want to run again. He has nothing to lose by going after Trump every time he can.

:
Roy Blunt invites Mike Flynn to come and speak
to his Committee on Intelligence
the new administration's up a creek
the only winner looks to be Mike Pence
by undermining foreign policy
in violation of the Logan Act
to testify on pain of perjury
what part of what's alleged's objective fact
the president can pardon many things
but what of felonies himself commands?
our chief executives are less than kings
and Donald's web of lies is out of hand
the Trump regime's already on the rocks
but who can fill the shoes of Archie Cox?

Bob, I'm just catching up with the blog, having been with Eloise in the hospital here with pneumonia. Eloise came home today, still feeling pretty rough, but the worst is hopefully over. It's hard enough being in the hospital here; I can only imagine your anxiety and Susie's as you tried to negotiate a foreign health care system. I'm so glad to hear Susie is doing better.

DML said...

I'm happy to hear it was just s scare, and I hope your travels back to the States went smoothly.

Tom, I am very upset to hear about Eloise. Susie seems to be doing fine. Give Eloise my best.
