Hi Fuzzy, Carm, Scraps, leather and others!

I didn't come up with "Therestrials" - but I've made to spread it around here!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Private Presley:

Check out Talking Points Memo's editor blog. It references the latest story on NYTimes.com - "Trump Allies Quietly Push Plan for Russia and Ukraine."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Matt from Springfield:

...that would be somewhere in Constitution Gardens, DC. Near the Washington Monument too.

Interesting, almost avant-garde arrangement by PJ Harvey.

PJ rocks. For some reason, I've always liked her since I saw her video on Beavis and Butthead.

Remember - Drumpf emphasized in that so-called 'PressConference' he had no Business or communication w/ Russia. It's about Oil profits w/ Putin I think - that's what Drumpf knows & does...I mean - the Secretary of State is the former CEO of Exxon - what would anyone expect...
Avatar 10:34pm Linda Lee:

as soon as Trump began alienating Intelligence his days in office were numbered. it's simply not done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm ☢️Ike☢️:

That PJ Harvey track is so odd, even for her (and I've been a fan since her first album). Is it just me or is it sort of reminiscent of a Sun Ra track (can't remember which one) or one of those mail-in-your-lyrics music-made-to-order things?
Avatar 10:36pm Linda Lee:

as soon as you realize the president is not the leader here, but is meant to follow an overarching agenda in his specific capacity or face removal, you'll see what's going on in DC & in mainstream media more clearly. Trump is only in office for as long as he's allowed to be there.
  10:37pm Dean:

I so wish The Turtles had starred in Hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Ahh, Turtles version of Eve of Destruction!! They often were 2nd choice for songs offered to the Byrds, who wouldn't take this and neither did the Turtles, falling to Barry McG. I guess they eventually released this version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Fuzzy:

Trump is "on the campaign trail" while Pres. Bannon and his minions work their nefarious machinations in DC.

Therese that Nixon thing was so great.

They'll put in Pence & be pleased as punch, & to hell w/ the collateral damage to us all. Next Election for the whole House & some Senate seats & Governors & things : 6th Nov., 2018.

Hi Julie! :)
You mean the "Orson Bible Nixon"? That was pretty good! (GNFAB, too, incidentally...)

yep Pence is the man. focus on Trump as the main problem facing the nation & agitating for his removal is ridiculous. he is not the problem.

...course if the whole election comes into question, the VP is too - but who would do that - a Republican Congress? Next in line is Speaker - Paul Ryan. Same thing...Anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm ἶkε:

Pence's positions are horrendous but at least he doesn't seem likely to fly off the handle & nuke somebody at any moment. Drumpf tweeting crazy BS, trying to delegitimize the press, and just generally acting like a 4chan troll (as mentioned above) is itself severely damaging to democracy and to America's reputation, and we can already see that his policies are 97% the same as Pence's anyway. Pence also can't hog headlines or brainwash crazed followers nearly so successfully. Not that it matters -- Republicans won't ever impeach this maniac for fear of his loons primarying them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: While there's nothing to be done for this current 4-year term, (the 'pubs control that), we can still discredit Trump and make sure anyone connected to him also has that stink. (Suppose resignations not only from Trump but also *Pence*! It's possible if crimes can be proven - it would still pass to another 'pub after that this term, but as long as those who try to do bad things are thrown into disarray, it's a worthwhile fight.

Good links therein to get you up to speed on Trump's Russian Tango -- tl;dr: Donny's in hock to the Russians, bigly.
Avatar 11:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Seems they'll let Drumpf ruin himself, & try to keep the Party free from it - presumably always the Plan. Yes Matt absolutely worth it. Amuricans tend to oscillate from one pole to another (when they show up to Vote @ all) as 'Change' - hating Gubbermint in general: Obama was the AntiDuhbya, Drumpf is the AntiObama & so on. Drumpf's barely got started. Elections are a world away...Hard to know how his Act will go down w/ the masses out there - when it's not an Act I ever - ever - had time for in the 1st place...He's a manifestation of misdirected 'Populism' - so maybe cries of 'Stability' & 'Normalcy' - like Ford blandness after Nixon should be expected...Reportedly Repubs are getting strong pushback @ Town Meetings & such...already!...

Avatar 11:17pm Linda Lee:

if you believe Robert Reich about his GOP contacts, the party is using Trump as a convenient distraction for the public, while they take care of their agenda out back. if there's sufficient public push-back, Trump goes under the bus. he's also a convenient villain for the Democrats. i've never gotten so many fundraising emails in my life from Democrats & allied groups!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Good points, Rabbit.

And great electronica, Therese!
Avatar 11:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Seems Pence *is* in the loop if they get stuff on them - as we'd expect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Fuzzy:

That's what I was alluding to in my "campaign trail" comment above, @Linda.
Avatar 11:23pm Linda Lee:

yes. just concurring.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@Linda/Fuzzy: Remember how Reich recently said Trump is a "huge but temporary" problem? That's about true - the more insidious problem would be how to revive democracy and humanity in the many years after Trump's gone (whenever time that is..)

Avatar 11:29pm Linda Lee:

the way Trump sees his role in all this is probably irrelevant, since he's not calling the shots. he *is* able to fund-raise for his 2020 campaign as long as it's declared, however & there's clearly no limit on political contributions, so he probably figures he's doing great.
Avatar 11:33pm Linda Lee:

funny in a way, if you like dark humor. 'can we get rid of the president again this week? he's giving me a pain in the ass.'
'sure, send him back to Florida. let him do his rally thing. the crowds make him happy.'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Dark humor is now a survival essential worldwide. If anyone isn't already pre-inclined to like dark humor, I would be happy to help them with that ;)

Yes, it occurred to me last night what perfect cover the misdirection/distraction of a Reality TV President provides for the Backroom Boyz.
