We've moved on to the next phase
Well, the press is no longer chasing rabbits.
Years ago, the woman up the street had pet rabbits that always got out. And they always went to my parents' yard, since my parents were the only people on the block with no dogs. After a day of crapping on my father's beloved lawn, the rabbits would go home, and my father would come out to survey the damage.
"RABBIT PELLETS!" he'd roar. I'd be in my house next door, writing, and I'd jump and emit a string of profanity. Then my father would rake up the rabbit pellets, throw them away, and come pound on my door so he could bitch to me for an hour.
Then it would all happen again three days later.
It was a ritual. I hate rituals.
The press not only has no learning curve, it can be rammed even further into the dirt. "Harebrained" is the perfect word for the American press.
Today we were told that Deputy National Security Advisor Mira Ricardel had been fired and escorted from the White House.
Trump and his allies are making it impossible to know what's actually happening. There are at least five major deceptions going on.
Two former attorneys general from the George W. Bush administration — Alberto Gonzales and Michael Mukasey — have criticized the appointment of Whitaker.
Mukasey told USA Today that in his view, the acting attorney general needs to be confirmed by the Senate. "Even Richard Nixon didn't put in somebody as acting attorney general who had not been confirmed," he said. Nixon's attorney general and deputy attorney general both resigned after refusing to carry out Nixon's order to fire Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox.
And Gonzales, in an interview with NPR, said the appointment "confounds" him. "Even if it is lawful, I question whether putting Mr. Whitaker in this position at this particular time was a wise move," he said, particularly in light of "his public comments about the Mueller investigation."
They're all looking in the wrong direction. They think that Matthew Whitaker is going to stop the Russia probe, which actually poses no threat to Trump.
Nope. Whitaker is going to indict Obama, Hillary, Holder, Comey, and many others.
That's why Trump is telling us that the Democrats stealing house elections doesn't matter. He hasn't actually said that STEALING the elections doesn't matter, but he's said that the number of seats they hold doesn't matter. Everything Trump says has significance.
Just a few days ago, Trump said that he would never forgive Obama for the things he did, which Trump would talk about in the future.
Trump told Hillary to her face that if he were president, she'd be in jail.
The Democrats and the American voter need an ice-cold fist to the face to wake them from their pre-Trump vegetative states. Only one thing will change our politics forever: the indictment and total exposure of people considered untouchable. It's such a inconceivable act that I have no doubt that Whitaker will do it.
In the meantime, the press plays with rabbit pellets.
If my father were alive, he'd be infuriated by what we did to his lawn. We took it out and replaced it with succulents. They have spines as sharp as needles, so animals can't come in and crap. The glorious pool-table look of the front yard is gone, but I prefer the deadly cacti and euphorbia.
The property is now very…Trumpian.
