“If you can’t eat their food, drink their booze, screw their women, take their money and then vote against them you’ve got no business being up here.”

It is a fact that every politician understands. It is also the test for every newbie. And they don’t come any more newbie than Donald Trump. His test?   The favors he received from the Russians. Is he bought? or is he independent? It is critical as to how he responds. So far like any newbie he is clueless.

The title quote is from California politician Big Daddy Unruh

O, what a fall was there, my countrymen!

Then I, and you, and all of us fell down,
Whilst bloody treason flourish’d over us

The Tragedy of Julius Caesar Act II Scene III
William Shakespeare

Although the beginning works to attack and destroy drumpf have been designed, it will not be by those who wish him ill that he falls.  He will by his own actions and words be taken down.  A man so mentally frail as to lash out in the manner of a petulant three year old will always be looked down on in an adult world.

I am afraid that our country will be rent apart prior to his removal from office.  When republicans (they do not deserve the respect of a capitol letter) scrap their own love of country and respect for the law to stand behind and uplift the man we can be afraid of them too.  They will follow him to the edge of a deep crevasse from which they either see the truth, or they blind themselves in idolatry and plunge America to it’s death.

Can the Democrats rally enough support to end this folly of idiocy any time before it reaches a terrible destructive climax?  I keep my faith in a handful of Republicans willing to risk ire of the child to save America from his tantrums.  These men and women are true to their beliefs and to a strong country of these United States.  Their actions are imperative to stopping a blunder, to stopping a wrong, to stopping a child who needs to be bundled in a blanket and a pacifier shoved in his mouth.

Will the Republicans and Democrats succeed?  They must, otherwise serious harm will be done to a once great country.

Hacked

What’s the deal with this argument that Russian hacking did not influence the election?

Spilling embarrassing internal Clinton campaign and DNC emails, and spreading lies about Hillary all over the Internet, might not be empirically provable as affecting the outcome, but proving the opposite is equally unknowable.

The hackers did not need to somehow change votes to affect results. Leaking stolen emails and distributing falsehoods was effective.

There seems to be a move afoot, even by some Democrats, the media and intelligence officials to persuade Donald Trump to get on board with the revelations by giving him cover that none of this questions the legitimacy of his election.

Question it.
