Sleepy Joe vs the Orange Nazi

Sleepy Joe as the Orange Disaster called him this morning on twitter is officially running for the Democratic nomination. He set about establishing his liberal bona fides immediately by pointing out that Trump thinks Nazis are "fine people". The people whose votes he's courting at the moment already knew that but it did get him a few seconds on the news.

A couple of weeks ago Joe managed to get on the news with a supposed slip of the tongue saying that he's, "the most progressive Democrat running". The big news was supposedly that he let slip he's running, nobody noticed that he claimed he's a progressive. That of course was a big fat lie. Trump is every bit as progressive as Joe, that is not at all. 

Biden was an active and enthusiastic participant in the corporate dems dismantling of the American middle class. The Bankruptcy reform that made it impossible to write off student loans was his baby. Student loans have shot past credit cards and auto loans to $1.55 trillion and climbing fast as the student share of education balloons and wages after graduation fizzle despite the good economy. 

Obama-Biden policies moving student loans directly under the jurisdiction of the Dept of Education didn't really cut out the banks from making loans at a tidy profit but created a new profit center of private loan servicing companies that make examples out of scofflaws by sending Federal Marshals to arrest them and haul them before a special judge to be further threatened. A six percent Federally guaranteed return $1.55 trillion plus all the fees they can generate makes doing anything productive seem like a total waste of time.

Biden was involved in every bad policy to which Dems have been a party since Bill Clinton banished the Progressives to the wilderness. Trump was able to beat Hillary because he could tie her directly to the decline of the middle class and he'll have an even better case against Biden who was a full participant. Hillary went from co-president to a simple first lady when anyone pointed out just how awful the things Bill Clinton pushed through really were. 

Hillary only started calling herself a progressive after it was obvious Bernie was beating her. Biden hasn't missed a beat in picking up the progressive mantle. It's about as disgusting as watching Republicans wrapping themselves in the Flag. Biden has been signaling to the big donors that they need to really pony up in the first 24 hours to match Bernie's war chest. Time to send Bernie another ten spot. There are thousands of corporate Dems but there are tens of millions of us. where the disgust is shared freely but bring your own canned goods.

For a Russian spy her involvement with the Yuge Rotten Orange will get her time wearing orange

The Feds are recommending 18 months in prison for the only Russian spy arrested in the ongoing Orange Treason Scandal. They submitted in evidence to the sentencing Judge a note that Maria Butina wrote to her handlers in Moscow detailing the advantages of putting resources into an 'unnamed' Presidential campaign and into conservative groups like the NRA.

Butina's American boyfriend (whom she complained about to in her reports to Moscow) was a mid-level Republican operative that has been indicted for basically swindling little old ladies is responsible for at least one person placed in the WH as an aide to General Micheal Flynn who was indicted in his own right and still cooperating. Flynn's sentencing Judge wondered out loud after seeing the sealed information in his case if the prosecutors had considered charging him with Treason. The Judge told him to go back and cooperate some more because he wasn't inclined to accede to the prosecution's call for leniency in his case.

It appears that the NRA funneled as much as 70 million dollars in Russian money into the 2016 election (30 million to Trump alone) which might explain why high ranking GOP members of Congress are sticking with Trump, they're all dirty. Trump changed FEC regulations to exempt the NRA from revealing where their money comes from the day after the Russian/NRA story broke, this won't stop the FBI from investigating.

There are 14 ongoing investigations redacted in the Mueller Report, this probably doesn't include investigations that weren't referred by Mueller directly. When the FBI kicks over a log they're free to chase anything that runs. Trump's log is yuge and very rotten.

Trump's Monday morning tweets indicate he really feels the noose tightening. Spouting that he can't be impeached and his enemies are the real wrong doers. This includes his own lawyers who he claims fabricated their notes to make him look guilty. Mueller reported ten instances where Trump ordered his staff to commit obstruction of justice and they refused. The rightwing defense that their refusal exonerates him. Endeavoring to commit obstruction is the same as doing so under the law. The only defense is that Trump is too incompetent to hold the highest office in the land. Impeachment is the only course of action either way.
