Sounds like Trump will not allow jack squat to be done on infrastructure because he will not work with Democrats while there are open investigations. It's a shame as our country could really benefit from this.

ABC News is reporting Nancy Pelosi is calling an emergency, closed-door meeting tomorrow morning to discuss impeachment with Democrats. I think she stalls the process until, a) they get a break on leverage, or b) someone spills the beans on something that can't be refuted or is too corrupt, Yet the tide may have turned.

My take on Pelosi's leadership style is she is shrewd and can count votes. She isn't going in unless she has plenty of ammo or Trump can be slammed into submission.

I think Pelosi's philosophy on something like this is: "Make me do it." She wants to see the groundswell of public pressure, particularly among her own party base, to demonstrate that it's worth the effort politically. IMO a lot of people mistake this pragmatism for an unwillingness to pursue progressive priorities. No, she just knows she needs to hold her caucus together while doing it, and not everyone is reading lefty Twitter.
I agree in a sense or perhaps it semantics. Pelosi is waiting for critical mass or a groundswell of public pressure as you say. Same thing or close enough. If she says yes, she wants to bury Trump, not just nick him. She doesn't want to risk failure but at a certain point it won't be her...something will break and momentum will shift.

In any case, things took a measured step forward. Pelosi announced Trump is engaged in a cover up, and of course Trump went mental...again. Saying this was to show she knows what's going on...but no pulling the trigger until you see the whites of their eyes.

We live under the first president in American history willing to tear it all down to prevent his tax returns from being released. Not sure what else one needs to know about him.

can anyone explain what in God's green acre happened to Ben Carson? His Wikipedia page is extremely impressive. When did he take the wrong exit? He appears classically overmedicated, which, if true, it go a long way towards answering my question.

I just found this after posting the above:

What the Hell Is Going on With Ben Carson?

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/what-the-hell-is-going-on-with-ben-carson-53153/




"Even his speaking demeanor drips with disregard: the total unconcern with being audible, as if anyone who has trouble hearing needs to lean closer; the endless dilations delivered with eyes almost fully closed, as if eye contact or even the presence of others is immaterial; the answers that engage topics of interest to him at a plodding pace regardless of your available time, ending at a terminus of his choosing, the journey intelligible only to himself. More pointedly, almost the only time Carson raises his voice, opens his eyes and looks directly at someone for a response is when he's angered. Like Jabba the Hutt, he only stops nap-talking and stares when he's surprised or denied his expectations."


Ben fell on his sword and didn't bone up on how to make it look dignified or pretend it was anything else. OR he just didn't care...or gave himself a lobotomy.

They are also using that title for an upcoming film about the life of Robert Kraft's masseuse. Beaver Cleaver's brother, Tony Dow, will play the role of Robert Kraft.

The guy is unhinged, mentioned "the I word". More proof Nancy Pelosi owns him.

While Pelosi might be playing it safe on impeachment, clearly she can rattle the lardass fart can...so she should.

"i don't do cover-ups just nobody can see my grades, my taxes, the full unredacted Mueller report, none of my staff is allowed to testify in front of congress, no one can know what I discuss with Putin, everyone who works in govt signs an NDA, and oh, by the way, all those subpoenas? Yeah, the House can ***k right off on all of them. But definitely no cover-ups!"

One of the things I love about the tax return disclosure controversy is that Trump repeatedly has said if he wasn't under audit he would release his returns but he has at most like 6 years under audit and hasn't released a single one of his older returns. I'm not quite sure why the media hasn't asked him about it because it's the first thing I think of every time he says he will release returns when they aren't under audit.

"Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it."
