Trump Does It Again!

President Trump has done it again. He has just sprung another trap on the left—and RINO Republicans, on illegal immigration. As my Red State colleague Elizabeth Vaughn writes today, there appears to be a not quite unexpected and rapid (from my point of view) breakthrough between the United States and the Mexicans. President Trump just announced a signed border agreement that will have Mexico keep asylum applicants on their side of the border until their cases are adjudicated.

This is huge. Within a matter of days, President Trump has been able to put all the naysayers in their place on his signature campaign issue, illegal immigration. Of course, the devil is always in the details and we can count on the leftists to pick apart any agreement. Such is the nature of our Republic.

Here’s what we can also count on as I’ve spoke of here, here and here, if they haven’t already, these leftists whom have everyone but America’s interests at stake, will almost certainly try to use their ace in the hole when things don’t go their way—Lawfare. I give it a week at most, before they fine a tame judge to issue a stay on enforcement of this agreement.

This could actually be a good thing going into 2020. President Trump and his team fight this in court, all the way up to November 2020, while at the same time, demonstrating an ever expanding border wall. The Democrats and their RINO enablers will be placed in an ever more difficult position come Election Day. Support this presidential initiative and he wins. Come out against it using the legal system as they are very likely to do and he wins again. Not only will this add to the President’s electoral count, but Republican House candidates, both incumbent and aspiring, will have a solid difference to point to.

“I’m supporting our President’s joint initiative with Mexico to secure our borders, helping those in need, while protecting Americans jobs.” “My opponent supports lawsuits intended to promote the invasion of our Nation by drug dealers, murderers and other criminals.”

—Any Republican Candidate

That’s about as good as it gets. A signature Presidential achievement and a boost to your own team in the House races. Nicely done Mr. President.

Slay, Queen, Slay: GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel Absolutely Burns Joe Biden Over His Hyde Amendment Flip Flop

Westlake Legal Group ronna-mcdaniel-620x349 Slay, Queen, Slay: GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel Absolutely Burns Joe Biden Over His Hyde Amendment Flip Flop washington D.C. Ronna McDaniel republicans Pro-Life Politics North Carolina Joe Biden Hyde Amendment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Campaigns Allow Media Exception Abortion 2020 Elections 2020

After much confusion, pressure, and waffling earlier this week over his Hyde Amendment stance, 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden announced Thursday that he had officially reversed course on his long-held position on the 43-year-old pro-life amendment.

To recap:

“If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s ZIP code,” he said.

The Hyde Amendment is a four-decade-old ban on federal dollars being used for abortions except in cases of rape, incest or when the woman’s life is in danger.

[…]

Biden told the crowd Thursday night he had changed his mind because Republican state lawmakers have enacted “extreme laws in clear violation of constitutional rights” protected by the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, making access to abortions more difficult for women who cannot afford the procedure or travel to obtain it.

He said he makes “no apologies” for his previous support for the Hyde Amendment.

“But circumstances have changed. I’ve been working through the final details of my health care plan like others in this race and I’ve been struggling with the problems that Hyde now presents,” Biden said.

Naturally, Biden is receiving a lot of justifiable criticism from conservatives over his politically convenient flip flop, but perhaps none will leave as deep a burn as the one issued by GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who tweeted this Thursday night:

Ouch.

McDaniel was referring to plagiarism allegations that have long plagued Biden’s political career, most recently over his climate change plan.

In spite of that, and in spite of the numerous unwanted touching allegations he faced earlier this year, Biden has consistently been ahead by double digits in Democratic presidential polling – even well before he jumped into the race.

A Must Read Thread on Joe Biden’s Flip-Flop on Abortion and You’ll Never Guess Who Convinced Him

Westlake Legal Group Biden-620x319 A Must Read Thread on Joe Biden’s Flip-Flop on Abortion and You’ll Never Guess Who Convinced Him weak Unstable Politics Not a Moderate Joe Biden Hypocrisy Hyde Amendment Front Page Stories Front Page Flip-Flopper Featured Story False Perception Embarassing democrats Democrat primary CNN Alyssa Milano 2020 Race

Ok, you might guess. It’s 2019 after all.

It’s important to note that Joe Biden’s entire shtick is that he’s consistent. He’s old, slow Joe and nobody is going to pressure him into anything. You know exactly what you are going to get from him. That’s the entire basis of his campaign and it is bolstered by his claims of moderation in his politics.

In reality, that entire image is nonsense and his latest move shows it.

After supporting the Hyde amendment (which bans federal funding for abortion) for decades, Biden has decided, literally overnight, that he’s now against it. What a steady and stoic leader he is.

Just two days ago, he had his campaign co-chair go on CNN to says this.

Less than 24 hours later he had completely flip-flopped and decided he’s against the Hyde amendment.

What happened? Apparently he got a phone call from noted political mind (checks notes)…Alyssa Milano? No, I’m not making that up.

Just how big of a flip-flop is this? The Federalist’s David Harsanyi posted a must-read thread this morning detailing his long history on the matter.

David ends with this question of Biden.

This just shows what a disaster Biden’s campaign actually is. He’s a paper tiger living off name recognition and the false appearance of being a moderate. Yet, the moment a few left-wingers complain on Twitter or Alyssa Milano gives him a call, he folds faster than the lady down at the dry cleaners.

Biden is not a picture of leadership or consistency. He’s not steady Joe or any of the other silly names his fans like to give him. He’s a chaotic gaffe machine who’s willing to change positions overnight if he feels even the slightest amount of negative pressure. There’s a reason this guy has gotten rolled over and over throughout his career. Barack Obama had to pick him up off the dustbin of politics after he crashed and burned in 2008.

We are told things will be different this time. They won’t be. Most of his opponents in the Democrat primary are better at him than this. The moment he comes out of hiding and starts actually having to defend his positions, he’s going to spontaneously combust. Imagine this guy on a debate stage with Donald Trump. While political wonks may think Trump isn’t a good debater, he’s a master at making other people look dumb and small. Biden is already looking old and showing an inability to think on his feet. If he makes it to the general, you can throw all the prognostications out the window.

Right now, Biden is so weak-kneed that he’s being led around by Alyssa Milano. That’s not a good look at all.

A Serious Question For Democrats: What Exactly Was Trump’s Crime?

Westlake Legal Group ohio-music-store-trump A Serious Question For Democrats: What Exactly Was Trump’s Crime? President Trump Nancy Pelosi Mueller Investigation Jerry Nadler Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Culture coup against President Trump corruption Congress Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020

Screen grab via WEWS’s @NEWSjordanv’s Twitter feed.

 

Several weeks ago, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told reporters that President Trump was engaged in a cover-up. This week, she told a group of committee chairmen, “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff says that Trump has colluded with Russia in plain sight. When the Mueller Report established that wasn’t true, he continued his attacks.

Here are just a few highlights from the past week:

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler says “there certainly is” justification for Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Nadler speaks to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer who doesn’t understand why he is hesitating on starting the impeachment process.

Turning to MSNBC, Nicole Wallace asks guests on a panel, “What’s wrong with him? (silence) No, I’m serious, really.”

One guest starts discussing Trump’s narcissistic personality disorder.

Then Wallace just trashes Trump. “He clearly appears less capable of sustaining his own thoughts for longer than four to six seconds. Used to be he couldn’t follow anyone else’s conversation, now he doesn’t seem to be able to follow his own.” Guests nod indicating they understand exactly what she means.

Fox News’ Judge Napolitano, one of Trump’s biggest critics, told viewers that Mueller dropped the ball, but not for the reasons one might think. He dropped the ball by not indicting Trump.

Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe offers advice to Pelosi. “Skip the Senate and let the House hold an impeachment “trial” for Trump.”

Breitbart News reported that “a woman from Palmetto, Florida, told law enforcement that her hatred for President Donald Trump drove her to stab herself in the stomach multiple times over the weekend, according to a police report.”

Just today, Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “More than anything else, this isn’t about my feelings or about retribution. Look, the lizard brain that I have says I hope bad things happen to this man because he has been so destructive to our Republic, to the concept of democracy, to the concept that internationally we are a light unto the nations.”

Democratic strategist Richard Goodstein told Fox News’ Shannon Bream, “Look, there are people who are living in a dream world that Donald Trump has done nothing wrong demonstrably, and if you read the Mueller report — and I encourage everybody, still, to do that — you will see the list of things, the elements of each crime of obstruction that he’s met.”

Oh, Trump should be removed from office because one day, after a year of being falsely accused of a crime, he asked the White House Counsel to have Mueller fired? Which the man refused to do. And even if he had acted on Trump’s order, it still would have been legal. Is that what you mean Mr. Goodstein?

Each day, a new aspect of the Mueller report is discredited.

Answer the question. Impeach Trump for what?

Specifically, what law did our President violate?

If you asked any one of them, really pressed them, they wouldn’t be able to come up with an actual crime. Trump is so vile and we are so virtuous and enlightened will no longer cut it.

Democrats have been repeating their mantra for so long, it’s become habit. Perhaps it comforts them to repeat the words “Trump needs to be impeached” several times slowly.

But now it’s time to name the crime.

Because America can no longer afford to indulge them.

A Different Aspect Of Tariffs

A Different Aspect Of Tariffs.

This coming Monday, absent some serious, verifiable action by Mexico, by order of President Trump, Mexican goods coming into these United States will get a 5% tariff levied on them. This action is similar to an action the President recently took against China. In that case, President Trump imposed escalating tariffs in response Chines trade practices such as copyright and patent violations.

Mexico is a different deal and offers Americans a different opportunity. President Trump is trying to encourage Mexico to stop its assistance to illegal aliens using Mexico as a transit corridor on their march North to file bogus asylum claims.

This situation of hundreds of thousand of illegals flowing across our borders is not entirely of Mexico’s making. Much like U.S. demand for illegal drugs has created the “attractive nuisance” that fosters a billion dollar drug trade, Congressional legislation and decisions by activist judges, have contrary to international convention, created “asylum seekers” out of ordinary economic migrants. That’s not Mexico’s fault. It’s ours.

However what is Mexico’s fault, is their enabling of these groups to transit Mexico, often providing transportation Northward towards U.S. crossing points. President Trump’s objectives for Mexico are quite simple. He wants Mexico to get control of its Southern border and he wants Mexico to as delineated by international treaty, to be the “first safe space,” these economic migrants stop in.

Here’s the unique aspect of using tariffs to motivate Mexico. It provides a clear choice to American taxpayers. If we continue to allow these economic migrants into the United States, we will continue to have to support them with our tax dollars. The American taxpayer gets little if any choice on that. Imposing a 5 percent tariff puts that choice back with the American taxpayer/consumer. He or she can now decide whether to continue to buy Mexican products at the increased price…or not. Just another small benefit of The Trump Doctrine On Tariffs.

Delusional: Failed Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams Tells Voters “You Don’t Have The Right To Vote In GA”

Westlake Legal Group stacey-abrams-finger-SCREENSHOT-620x364 Delusional: Failed Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams Tells Voters “You Don’t Have The Right To Vote In GA” voting rights Stacey Abrams Politics North Carolina Georgia Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020 2018 elections 2018

It’s been seven months since Democrat Stacey Abrams lost the Georgia governor’s race to Republican Brian Kemp fair and square. She has spent her every waking moment since deliberately undermining the election results, trying to convince voters she actually won, and that the election was “stolen.”

As she’s done this, the mainstream media – who are quick to use the “without evidence” tag for any claim Republicans make – have spent little to no time fact checking her claims. In fact, major news outlets like the New York Times have elevated her profile in puff pieces and op/eds.

Democrats, in turn, have taken to promoting these untruths about a “stolen election”, so much so to the point that it’s become a rite of passage of sorts for 2020 presidential candidates to “kiss the Abrams ring.”

Her latest comments on the gubernatorial election, however, are far worse and even more delusional than what she’s said previously.

CNN political Eric Bradner tweeted this Thursday:

As I’ve said before, you’d think there would be some Democrats who would be willing to stage an intervention with Abrams at this point, but they, too, are busy out there perpetuating the myth that the Georgia governor’s race was “stolen.”

Abrams has been fact checked a number of times on her repeated claims, including by Rich Lowry:

They say Kemp’s confessed his true, untoward feelings about voting when he expressed “concern” about Abrams pushing absentee voting.

But the full quote from Kemp speaking at a GOP event is: “They have just an unprecedented number of [absentee ballot requests], which is something that continues to concern us, especially if everybody uses and exercises their right to vote — which they absolutely can — and mail those ballots in, we gotta have heavy turnout to offset that.”

[…]

They allege that Kemp shut down polling places. It’s true, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, that 214 precincts have closed in Georgia since 2012. It’s just not the handiwork of Brian Kemp.

Counties make the decisions about whether or not to shutter polling places. It’s usually cash-strapped rural areas that consolidate precincts to eliminate underutilized polling places and locations that don’t comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

When a controversy exploded over a proposal to close seven of nine precincts in tiny majority-black Randolph County, Kemp came out publicly and opposed the plan. (As it happens, Randolph voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, but Trump won five of the seven precincts slated for closure.)

As Hot Air‘s Karen Townsend notes, Abrams’s comments do more to divide Americans than unite them::

Abrams is riding her message of victimhood for as long as she can. To this day she claims if it were not for voter suppression she would be the Governor of Georgia. It’s madness and it is the same kind of sore loser behavior exhibited by Hillary and her continued claims that she lost the presidential election due to Russian collusion. Both narratives are just plain wrong and do nothing but divide Americans.

Not only that, but Abrams may find that insisting on telling people their votes don’t count may have the opposite effect of motivating them to go to the polls. It could depress them enough to stay home come election time.

Wouldn’t that be ironic?

AOC Pushes a New Conspiracy Theory About Trump and Iran, But There’s a Problem

Westlake Legal Group aoc-ocasio-cortez-2-620x413 AOC Pushes a New Conspiracy Theory About Trump and Iran, But There’s a Problem Trump hotel Politics Nonsensical mullahs Iran War Iran Hotel Room Stay Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story emoluments donald trump democrats conspiracy theory bribe AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @ SXSW 2019 by nrkbeta, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

She’s got a habit of not reading the articles she links to and comments on. If she did, she might avoid some of these embarrassments.

Just a few days ago, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got herself into trouble by going to bat for Paul Manafort being put in solitary confinement. The issue was that he was actually going into protective custody, likely on a voluntary basis. Had she read the article she retweeted, she’d have known that.

Here’s another case of that.

This makes no sense on several levels.

Trump is vehemently opposed to war with Iran, to the point of being in conflict with his own advisors at times. The idea that the President is looking to attack the Mullahs holds no basis in fact. It’s a George Bush era characterization that simply makes no sense when applied to Trump.

As luck would have it, we know the real reason this sheikh was in town. He was there for medical treatment at John Hopkins University Hospital. It’s also unclear that he wants the U.S. to “strike Iran.” While he worked for the CIA during the Iraq war, his current communications seem to center on a mutual support of overthrowing the Mullahs. That could happen several ways, not all including a full scale military invasion.

Regardless, think of how stupid AOC’s contention is on its face.

Does anyone seriously think Trump would start a war he’s opposed to simply because someone stayed at one of his hotels? It’s the same kind of nonsense propagated by liberals when they say the NRA “owns” someone over a $2,500 donation. No lawmaker or elected official is making policy based on donations that make up tiny, tiny fractions of their overall donor base.

In the case of Trump, he’s a billionaire. Maybe not quit as rich as he says, but still a billionaire. No one is calling him up and saying “look, if I drop $45,000 at your hotel, can you start this war for me?”

But here’s the biggest problem with AOC’s new conspiracy theory. The money was actually donated to the U.S. Treasury anyway.

The company, which runs the hotel, declined to answer questions about how much Kasnazan paid for his stay, or whether it had informed anyone at the White House about the sheikh’s long visit. The company said it donated the profits of his stay to the U.S. Treasury as part of a voluntary policy aimed at countering claims that the president is in violation of the emoluments clause.

Brilliant deduction as always Congresswoman.

Your Favorite Anti-Semite Not Only Misappropriated Campaign Funds She’s Also a Tax Cheat

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., listens as Office of Management and Budget Acting Director Russell Vought testifies before the House Budget Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 12, 2019, during a hearing on the fiscal year 2020 budget. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

Ilhan Omar. Ilhan. Omar. Ilhan. Freakin. Omar.

When the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board released its report requiring the pro-terrorist, anti-American, anti-Semitic bigot who happens to represent Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional to pay nearly $3,500 in fines and restitution for diverting campaign contributions to her own personal use, they buried the lede. Apparently, she not only scammed her contributors to enrich herself, she also engaged is several years of calculated income tax fraud.

To understand the tax fraud, let’s look at Omar’s official marriage history, or her stories of her marriage history, as aggregated by Wikipedia:

In 2002 she became engaged to Ahmed Hirsi (né Aden). The couple applied for a marriage license, but the application was not finalized. The couple had two children together before separating in 2008. The next year Omar married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a British citizen. In 2011 she and Elmi had a faith-based divorce,[146] and that year she reconciled with Hirsi, with whom she had a third child in 2012. In 2017 Elmi and Omar were legally divorced,[35] and in 2018 Omar and Hirsi were legally married.[19]

Briefly:

Married to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009.

Divorced Elmi in 2107.

Married Ahmed Hirsi in 2018.

 

This is from the report of investigation:

So, for at least two years, Omar was married to one guy and apparently shacking up with another guy and telling the IRS they were married. The secondary point here is that the Minnesota investigation was only interested in the years that involved the activities of her fundraising committee. There is a good chance that she did this for quite a few more years.

Yeah, the whole incestuous marriage thing is distasteful, but who are we to judge, right? I mean love is love, or so I was told.

For a normal person this would be frowned upon by the IRS. In this case, you’d be safe betting a large sum of money that nothing happens. Why? A) She’s a Democrat. B) She’s an Administration and Trump critic. C) She’s a black Muslim. D) She’s a woman. E) She’s a member of Congress. While no one of those would necessarily be a Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free card alone, together they amount to depleted uranium armor with a deflector shield and Romunlan cloaking device built in.

Carlos Maza Is Trying to Take the Heat Off Himself for Livelihoods Being Ruined (Don’t Let Him)

Westlake Legal Group 1231ee5b-bab7-4555-81eb-e757272ba2c0-620x317 Carlos Maza Is Trying to Take the Heat Off Himself for Livelihoods Being Ruined (Don’t Let Him) youtube vox Steven Crowder Social Media Politics Media Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats carlos maza Allow Media Exception Adpocalypse

While he does have a good number of supporters, Vox Media’s Carlos Maza seems to have become a public pariah thanks to his war against YouTube over having his feelings hurt by Steven Crowder.

Over the past few days, YouTube has bent over backward in order to please Maza, who has apparently roused the mob against YouTube for even daring to allow someone like Crowder to have a platform. Maza has done everything in his power to make it seem as if Crowder is a white supremacist, a homophobe, and a bigot.

Crowder is definitely not any of those, but that matters little to Maza. His true target was never really Crowder, it was anyone and everyone who offered differing opinions based on an opposing ideology. To him, people like Tucker Carlson are considered an enemy to society, and as dictated by the social justice dogma of the modern era, if it’s not falling in line with them, it’s Hitlerian.

Maza’s plan worked…sort of. YouTube has made a sweeping rule demonetizing anyone with content that may remotely resemble an opinion not shared by Maza’s hard-left ilk. Content creators on the platform have lost their income whether they were right-leaning or not. This includes educational and raw news channels that featured content such as speeches from Hitler or Richard Spencer.

One such channel was Ford Fischer who operates a channel where he posts on the spot footage of events like alt-right gatherings, protests, speeches, etc. His work had been used in documentaries. Despite this, YouTube demonetized him.

This sudden rush to please Maza by YouTube is Maza’s doing. Maza whipped up what every corporation fears, and that’s a mob that may alter public opinion about them. While YouTube is staffed by the same type of leftist that Maza is, and was only too happy to capitulate, this is Maza’s fault.

However, Maza is attempting to take the blame off himself for YouTube’s sudden, panicked rush to fix an issue that wasn’t an issue. As creators find their source of pay going away, they can only trace it back to one man.

Maza, however, has decided to put the blame squarely on YouTube, and is attempting to simply pass it off as their incompetence in silencing and censoring the right people.

The last thing we should do is allow Maza and the media to structure the narrative that the cause of this “adpocalypse” is anyone’s fault but the creators of the outrage in the first place. Maza and the rest wanted censorship and punishment for those guilty of wrong-think. They got it.

When the left asks for more interference from the powers that be, this is what happens. There’s collateral damage. Innocent people suffer while you’re trying to target a specific group. The problem is that the specific group that Maza is targeting isn’t guilty of the things he’s pegging them with in the first place.

This sends YouTube frantically searching to position for a line to be drawn, and since Crowder did nothing wrong, they pull the line back further than it needs to be, hitting everyone else in the process.

This may be because of a reaction from YouTube, but rest assured, Maza was the source that caused the effect.

Fox: Pelosi has told Dems at caucus meetings, “We should go down there and arrest” Trump

With all due respect to the Fox News news desk, I’m skeptical. What would it even mean to say, “We should go down there and arrest the man”? Suddenly I’m picturing her leading an elite team of 20 Democratic congressmen dressed in SWAT gear into the White House and fighting their way past the Secret Service to the Oval Office.

Maybe followed by a hot pursuit through the streets of D.C. after Trump flees out the back door and hops behind the wheel of the presidential limo to make his getaway.

Also, arrest him for what? The only power Congress has to detain people as far as I know is to enforce a contempt citation, and Trump hasn’t been held in contempt. (Although House Dems would love to do so in order to rebuke his many assertions of executive privilege over witnesses and documents they’ve demanded.) If you believe the Times, even Bill Barr might end up dodging a contempt vote.

So what the hell would this even mean?

Nancy Pelosi suggested this week that Democratic leaders should look beyond the short-term question of whether to pursue impeachment against President Trump – something the House speaker is loath to do considering the high political risk and low chance of success – to the possibility of pursuing charges against him once he leaves office.

Pelosi, D-Calif., reportedly referenced this scenario in a meeting with Democrats this week. Politico reported that the House speaker told top committee chairmen: “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”…

Several House Democratic sources told Fox News that Pelosi has said similar things about Trump in past caucus meetings, such as “we should go down there and arrest the man.” The sources said Pelosi is trying to put any action off until after the election, making the case that Democrats should defeat Trump in 2020 — and then seek prosecution after he leaves office.

That sounds like Pelosi overcompensating rhetorically for the fact that she doesn’t want to impeach Trump. She has upwards of 60 people in her caucus pressing her to open impeachment proceedings; in order to hold them off, she may feel obliged to talk tough — ridiculously, unrealistically tough — in private to reassure them that she hates the president just as much as they do. “You guys only want to impeach? Why, I was thinking we should lock his ass up.” Whatever.

Trump’s playing the tough-talk-aimed-at-the-base game too:

The impeachment chatter on both sides looks increasingly like little more than kabuki performed for the 2020 electorate. Pelosi’s happy to have Democrats threaten Trump in ever more draconian ways *if* doing so sates their appetite for formal action. Embarrassing the president by impeaching him would inflame Republican voters, she fears, but talking about sending him to prison or whatever? Eh, talk is cheap. Trump talked endlessly about locking Hillary Clinton up on the trial in 2016, didn’t he? Meanwhile, if Pelosi’s not going to hand him turnout fuel by actually impeaching him, Trump’s going to use their tough talk about prison etc. as kindling instead by feigning offense, as in the tweets above. It’s a performance on both ends.

I think. Judging by this clip, it sounds like Jay Inslee wants Trump charged with “climate treason” or something.

In lieu of an exit question, here’s Hannity very belatedly deciding that threatening to lock up one’s political opponents is actually bad.
