Banana republic

The elected leader in a Western democracy just tried to instruct his top law enforcement official to shield his political allies from criminal prosecution for political reasons.

Donald Trump believes that the US Department of Justice should be an arm of the Republican party.




Trump hits Sessions over indictments of GOP congressmen

In a pair of tweets, Trump seemed to blame the attorney general for the timing of federal charges last month against Reps. Chris Collins and Duncan Hunter.

Two long running, Obama era, investigations of  two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department. Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff......

How did those rude loons disrupting the Kavanaugh hearings get in there?  Clear the room or start caning them when they open their yaps!  Durbin says it's voice of democracy. No sir--it's the voice of ppl w/o basic manners or respect for others.

Re: Banana republic

Just why the hell do these people have such a fascination with totalitarian rule?  It's like saying, "Democracy was an experiment.  It doesn't work.  So let's try theocratic authoritarianism."  WTF?

These assaults on the rule of law will not stop unless the people stop them.

In two months the most important election of our time will be held

Re: Banana republic

We need to be reminded that even after Joe McCarthy was exposed as a fraud, wingnut, and discredited, he still had a 35% approval rating.  Huckabee would probably bring back the Inquisition if he could, and 35% of the people would support it.

Trump suggests that protesting should be illegal

President Trump has long derided the mainstream media as the “enemy of the people” and lashed out at NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem. On Tuesday, he took his attacks on free speech one step further, suggesting in an interview with a conservative news site that the act of protesting should be illegal.

Trump made the remarks in an Oval Office interview with the Daily Caller hours after his Supreme Court nominee, Brett M. Kavanaugh, was greeted by protests on the first day of his confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill.
