Pelosii is no fool, Mitch Mc Connell may think he is smart, but this lady has his balls in a vice. Trump may end up the same but a much smaller vice will be required.

A creep who puts domestic politics above all else.
What is it with the orange turd. do you have to be a criminal to support him. With the number of his supporters that are either in gaol or heading there you would think the was running a mafia family.
Oh wait he is !!!!

Meanwhile, massive cuts to the National Security Council: https://www.npr.org/2020/01/10/79536666 ... ty-council

They're going from what were about 180 staffers. They intend to cut that by a third, because 67% of Obama's intelligence is enough, I guess.

2019 US/Iran conflict - Ars Technica OpenForum

I saw this remark on the Ars Technica boards. They're generally fairly astute and I thought this was a particularly astute observation. The interpretation does contradict how sharp it is though as it seems to drift into a routine sort of ad hom on how clever the commenter is and how dull Trump appears.

Have you noticed the turn-over in the Trump administration? He stripping down the institutions around him of competence and creating an environment of delirium to get a sort of manic control over it. Racketing up anxiety among those in places of responsibility lowers defenses and increases suggestibility. And it's perfectly obvious that that's what he's up to.

He's waging a war on competence to secure his tenure beyond legitimacy by removing credible, independent and competent performance measures and oversight. And he's doing this opportunistically as the political system settles into a sludge like dysfunction. You get this sort of guy as a polity goes through this end of the cycle. The thing is to catch it in time and they haven't been able to do this because they weren't good enough - neither in character nor in skill. Dishonesty decomposes intelligence, values and virtu.

To fabricate the sort of ecosystem that Trump's best adapted to he increases the dysfunction and disorientates attention. He's forcing others into taking bad positioning by either getting them to compromise themselves in some way in previous seemingly unrelated moves or taking advantage of existing flaws. Then they can't effectively challenge him because they're playing his game. The conditions that lead to this develops over decades though are not immediately publicly obvious until they become acute.

The American strategic deployment is awful and Trump is making it worse in an effort to embed himself. Foreign adventurism eventually turns to feed on the population at home before it expires from misallocation and contradiction. It uses guys like these as a grappling hook on its politics. Cheney's shade shadowed this.

Are you talking about Trump or Pelosi? your comment fits perfectly with the former, who makes everything about himself and being reelected.
Just another example of the lies aka "shifting story"

Do you really think that US Senators should incorporate opinion polls when voting/opining on impeaching a President?
As Thomas More says in A Man for All Seasons "The world must construe according to its wits; the court must construe according to the Law".

The Senate are sworn in as an impartial jury to analyse evidence and provide a verdict. In this case the jury also decide rules, though that is unusual in a court case - I would have thought the Chief Justice should have the final say.

The "Law" calls for a fair trial, which makes witnesses essential, imho.

The Senate may construe according to the Law - but they must also realise that, with no witnesses, the world will construe that the "trial" is just a complete whitewash of a guilty man by his own party. That is what the opinion polls are telling them.

As another saying goes - Justice must be seen to be done. If the process stinks, it is not Justice.

That's a good tactical observation that applies to many organisations that go sour and how regarding predatory exploitation of their framework.

Senator John Thune says trying to get USMCA passed and the decision on the Houses War Powers Resolution before impeachment trial starts.

Organizations often can't handle defective personalities who negatively psychologise team play to feed a grandiosity.

The organization begins to rot if they're unchecked in the same way as blood poisoning inevitably comes from an untreated wound or illness. It's complex problem but not an insoluble one.

The thing, in this age of information, is to make obvious how stupid bad people really are and I think that's largely been done. People may still defer to intimidation, conceit and criminal enticement but they can't say they didn't know or weren't warned. There is an alternative to failure.

Democrats have not been the racist, xenophobic enablers in the USA. It has always been the GOP.
Stupid Ass you are. Of course I knew that. I attended University in the States, and read US history. You show your ignorance at every juncture with your posts. I will not engage with you further, fool.
The state of University education in the USA, folks.

Apart from Lincoln, that no-good racist, there was also the little issue of Jim Crow being led exclusively by Dems in the South.

I don't think you actually answered the question. Fine monologue, though.

Did you happen to follow the impeachment proceedings? The Dems haven't a single plausible argument nor a single plausible witness.

It increased Trump's polling numbers such was the transparency of the intentions. It's the worst kind of politicking.

I notice that Ted Cruz is once again spreading the Russian propaganda that Ukraine is responsible for hacking DNC site. I wonder if the Russians do have any evidence that his father was involved in the JFK assassination? I can see no other reason for his slavish support a bad president, after what Trump said about his father. Nothing would surprise me. I wonder what they have on Moscow Mitch too?

Bullshit. Am neither Democrat or Republican, watched the impeachment hearings with interest. Trump is clearly guilty as charged. The single most corrupt and incompetent POTUS ever.
