Brian J. Karem on Twitter: "POTUS says he is putting up "massive cities of tents", "thousands of tents" - or camps with a concentration of illegal immigrants. The overall numbers he claims could be 10, 12 or 20 million people. "The size of Vermont" he says."

plus

Brian J. Karem on Twitter: "NOW: POTUS just said refugees throwing rocks will be dealt with as if they were using firearms..."

Yeah, about that:



Referring to the U.S. military, obviously, since it’s a different story in Israel, but I kinda suspect that Hertling’s assessment is accurate. (Hertling, unlike me, has served.) Clearly I have more respect for our military than our president* does.

…also, this.

There is also a proposal to broaden "public charge" designations, which will be absolutely horrific on several different levels.

Huh. I wonder why Matthew Whitaker is the acting AG.

At first glance, Matthew G. Whitaker looks like he's only a piece of shit, not a racist one.

He's still the type of guy Trump seems to like to appoint, old, white, male, very religious, conservative and probably entirely corrupt.

That white nationalist POS Steven Miller is still there, though. He's probably the worst xenophobe in the white house.

This is potentially bad for one reason specifically: the Mueller investigation. Sessions' recusal was the main factor protecting it. There's no indication Whitaker will protect it, and the current signs suggest quite the opposite, in fact.

However, the odds Mueller hasn't already prepared for this eventuality are quite low. Odds are that he's already shared everything he knows with the NY AG and other sources.

Regardless, much as I despise the Racist Keebler Elf, I'm not sure this is a good thing. Can't imagine the NY AG's office having as much power to flip witnesses as the FBI. Same deal with the House. We should be prepared to get out on the streets if anything happens to Mueller, even us introverts.

My hope is that it doesn't matter and that we will be hearing from the investigation soon. Now that midterms are over there's no way to be accused of trying to sway elections and they can get right down to the business of jailing corrupt people in the turning door white house.
I feel like we are slowly but steadily headed to the day where this will be uttered in court, "I most popular vote elected president Donald Trump, it's true, it's been proven, fake votes for Hillary, I got the most, with the highest approval score of any president of all time, declare that Mr. Donald J. Trump is enumerated and pardoned from any crimes that they, the fake media, claims he has committed, which aren't true, there was no collusion, I president do decree. Signed President Trump *fake signing hand motion* *smug smile*"
And we get to see if that is taken seriously or laughed out of the court room.

Which is to say that some of my final hopes of a reasonable government rests on this investigation and just how accountable our government officials are to things like the people and laws in general, or if we are basically just electing strange monarchs and their weird families.

Adam Silverman’s (and Asha Rangappa’s) thoughts on Whitaker and Cheryl Rofer’s (and David Roberts’) thoughts on Trump’s narcissism. Both worth reading in full, but the short version of Silverman’s is that the intelligence community is likely to react to any attempts to put constraints on their investigation with selective leaks of information that serve as warning shots across the bow, and of Rofer’s is that that Trump may have fired Sessions more out of narcissistic pettiness than anything else, which would mean that it might (might) be awhile longer before he seriously contemplates firing Mueller.

We should still be prepared to get out on the street if anything happens, but it might not happen immediately. A lot of unknown variables still.

I think a lot of Derp Fuhrer's goal was to change the subject away from the election. He can't stand people discussing that he lost, why he lost, how bad he lost etc.

In any case I assume Mueller has some plan for making sure whatever evidence he has continues to be in play even if his investigation shuts down. If that's valid, shutting it down could well blow up in T Rump's face by making a stronger case for obstruction, yes, no?
