Friday, December 21, 2018 and the weekend.

 

THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

Jill Stein

And now, the obligatory picture of Jill Stein…

Flynn

 

Whitaker

So, after the Cohen guilty plea came out, Trump lost his shit on Whitaker and asked him why he didn’t stop the attorneys in SDNY from naming him as an unindicted co-conspirator.

Obstruction of Justice exhibit #4,398, 209.

 

Reality Check

 

Working During the Shutdown

 

Mystery Subpoena Case

Assuming that SCOTUS hears the case, they’ve never taken one on before that was sealed this tight the whole way up.  That we know of.

 

 

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

Here’s the thing with this newest shutdown: Nobody wins in the United States.  If the Democrats cave and give in to the wall, they lose their high ground and will screw themselves in the future with the next shutdown when Trump says he wants more money, which he will.  The only reason he won’t is if he’s gone by February, and that feels a little soon for his ouster.

 

COLD WAR 2.0

 

ISIS, Syria, Turkey, Mattis, Et. Al.

As much as I hate saying it, everything is connected.

Erdogan wants three things following the Jamal Khashoggi murder.

  1. Mohammed Bone Saw to face charges in the murder.
  2. Gulen sent to him for other crimes.
  3. The U.S. out of Syria.

Since Trump, Kushner, and Pompeo are accessories to murder after the fact, Option 1 isn’t happening.  And as much as Trump want to send Gulen to Turkey, we have this thing called Due Process, so Option 2 is out.  That leaves Option 3.  Trump will order the U.S. out of Syria to cover up his crimes.

RUMOR MILL

 

That’s it for the last few days.  This post is very light on the explanations and editorializing because, quite frankly, I’m running out of time.  I’m posting this on Christmas Eve, and I have about 6 hours of cleaning to do in about 2 hours.  It’s not impossible, it’s just a pain in the ass.

I’ll be back in a couple days.  I’ll cover the Christmas holiday and Boxing Day on one post.  I’ll also try to get a couple essays done this week.

Happy Holidays everyone.

To those who Christmas is your thing, Merry Christmas.  If you prefer to celebrate the Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Saturnalia, Mithras, Yule, Kwanza, Diwali, or Sir Isaac Newton’s Birthday, then enjoy your thing.

Yes, I know that Ramadan moves based off of the Lunar calendar and is currently in the Summer and Diwali is in October.  Screw it, I’m putting them in the list in case I missed anyone.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
