Public Uprising

Feb
17

From "Bill Barr Must Resign" by Former U.S. Dep. Attorney Gen. Donald Ayer:

“Bill Barr’s America is not a place that anyone, including Trump voters, should want to go,” he continued. “It is a banana republic where all are subject to the whims of a dictatorial president and his henchmen. To prevent that, we need a public uprising demanding that Bill Barr resign immediately, or failing that, be impeached.”

Media’s Out-of-Focus Focus

Feb
11

We’re only a couple hours away from actual election results in New Hampshire so speculation might seem as unnecessary as premature. That said, my general impression at least for the past few days is that the focus is on Bernie, Buttigieg and Klobuchar (for some reason) while ignoring or downplaying Elizabeth Warren. You hear this on radio, you hear and see this on tv. Even in newspapers and even in articles focusing on Warren (here’s an example from NYT), the best they can say is,

“... [S]ome veterans of losing campaigns wonder if her best 2020 moments have passed.”

So I guess the Media consensus is, it’s ‘Liz the Write-off’. (Hope not.)

Step by Step, Drop by Drop ...

Dec
22

So (highly blacked out) emails have been released to the Center for Public Integrity indicating involvement by the Trump administration in halting funds to Ukraine.

I wasn't that old when Nixon was impeached but I do recall it was a slow, graduated process, where more and more details continued to come out. That's what I think we're witnessing here as well.

Update (12/29/2019): Drip, Drip, Drip... Incredible article in today's New York Times, "Behind the Ukraine Aid Freeze: 84 Days of Conflict and Confusion" (link).

Update (1/27/2020): Drip, Drip, Drip... New York Times again, "Trump Tied Ukraine Aid to Inquiries He Sought, Bolton Book Says" (link).

I Could Be Wrong But ...

It seems more and more that Trump won't even make it to the election. Why? Oh, I dunno ( 1, 2, 3 ).

Wrong Side of History

Dec
13

Yee Gads, these people have the world upside down. The British election results -- Boris Johnson and all -- aren't a model for our own election next year. Rather they're a reflection to a certain extent of what happened here in 2016. In both cases, the wrong guy won. That's not going to happen next year.
