    I wouldn't bank on a collapse prior to 2020. Messaging about the economy needs to be careful, because it is something most Americans feel good about right now, even if the problems underlying it are deep.

    “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” - Donald Trump, 2002
    Could you imagine what the right would be doing if that was Bill Clinton saying that?

    Never mind that "This Will Finally Be The Thing That Hobbles Trump, And Delivers Us The Win..." was the plan in 2016.

    The strategy should be "Why They Should Vote For The Democratic Nominee..." not "Will The President Be Damaged Enough That His Opponent Can Pull Off A Win..."

    I'm already seeing the "Bill Clinton knew Epstein, he'll go down too" comments.
    I've already run out of ways of saying "That's fine, @#$% him too".

    Yeah, he would be really getting a lot of heat over that. Monica was young but at least not that young. The victim that attempted to press charges against Trump during the 2016 campaign has pretty much gone underground. Her story links both Trump and Epstein in the practice of assaulting underage girls. "Jane Doe" was 13 years old at the time and said she was recruited by a woman working for Eptein. This woman, named as "Tiffany Doe" had agreed to turn on Epstein and act as a witness. The case was dropped, allegedly because of some death threats. There is a movement JusticeforKatie, that obtained a copy of her deposition and posted it. The site has some blank spots to warn the reader about it's content before you get to the deposition. The link will take you to a copy of the court document that describes the attacks by both Trump and Epstein that occurred at the same party. IMO a telling bit of info is that it includes Epstein's address in Manhattan at that time. Since the AG's have now reeled in Epstein, after the sweet deal cut by then Florida AG Alex Acosta (now Trump's Secretary of Labor ), can they be ready to go for Trump?

    Remember, Trump went back into the dressing room area of the Teen Miss America contest and there's a high creepy daddy factor in his relationship with Ivanka

    I've seen mixed information on that. Bill and Hillary had been passengers on his private jet IIRC and there was a trip to Africa with Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker and Bill Clinton concerning the AIDS crisis in 2002. I've not seen Clinton linked to any of Epstein's private parties with underage girls.

    The Navy Admiral Trump picked wrote a letter to his peeps and retired instead of taking the post.

    That's the third active-duty military pick that has done that to Trump.

    Arizona law enforcement officials arrested a man who allegedly killed an innocent teenager in a brutal stabbing early Thursday morning. Although the teen didn’t know the suspect or apparently do anything to his alleged killer, authorities say the man committed the fatal act simply because he felt threatened by the music the teen was playing.
    On Thursday, police in Peoria, Ariz. charged 27-year-old Michael Paul Adams with the first-degree, premeditated murder of 17-year-old Elijah Al-Amin. According to the Arizona Republic’s review of court documents, Adams allegedly slit the boy’s throat and stabbed him with a pocketknife at a Peoria Circle K gas station.



    Superior court records say Adams told investigators that he felt threatened by the hip-hop music the teen was playing—not the teenager himself—explaining that people who play rap music are a threat to him and his community. Adams reportedly said he was being “proactive, not reactive” because the musical genre makes him feel “unsafe” after rap music listeners attacked him in the past.

    Madness.

    Somedays I wonder if we're witnessing the downfall of the United States of America. Bill Maher has been calling it a slow moving coup. I am clinging to the hope that Trump will get soundly defeated in 2020.

    Seth Abramson had quite the thread on Twitter:

    'Stop putting Trump's name in the same sentence as his friend Epstein's NYC sex trafficking charges'

    • It's not like Trump ran a NYC "modeling agency" featuring girls of unknown age dubiously trafficked from overseas and paid little to no wages at the same time he was an Epstein pal.
    • Just because it's true doesn't mean we should keep repeating that Donald Trump has been accused of rape (in significant detail) by a 13 year-old
    • was known to barge into teen girls' dressing rooms at pageants
    • has made inappropriate comments to/about underage girls on camera
    • I resent the fact that reporters keep mentioning Trump's peculiar ongoing affiliations with pedophiles like Epstein and George Nader
    • when all that does is limit the amount of air-time they have available to note that Trump ultimately endorsed pedophile Roy Moore for the US Senate
    • And for that matter, it seems unfair and piling on to at this moment note that there's an ongoing federal investigation into why so many of Trump's pals ended up in pictures with (or on the premises of) a Florida massage parlor owner whose employees appear to have been sex slaves
    • And for the life of me I can't figure out why it's relevant that under-indictment sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein said of his friend and fellow child-rape accusee, "I want to set up my [NYC] modeling agency the same way Trump set up his modeling agency" (quote from MSNBC just now)
    Abramson did omit that Epstein's plea deal to keep him out of jail was organized by Trump Labor Secretary Alexander Ocasta. Or the fact that A.G. Barr's father hired Epstein back in the 1970s.

    But PIZZAGATE!

    Acting DHS Chief Denies Troubling Conditions At Migrant Detention Centers

    Kevin McAleenan told ABC’s “This Week” that the slew of reports on unsafe and unsanitary conditions at Border Patrol facilities are unsubstantiated. Well, of course that smacked ass said what he did, otherwise, Trump would can him.

    Rep. Justin Amash Says Some Republicans Privately Praised His Decision To Quit Party

    The now-independent congressman is still not ruling out a 2020 presidential run. Of course, those Republicans, too scared of Trump didn't have the balls to PUBLICLY praise Amash's decision.

    Fox News was covering the USNWT's victory in the World Cup, which Trump had to be pissed about because Megan Rapinoe told him to pound sand on the team visiting the White House. Well, that and their live coverage went to a French pub where the LIVE broadcast sent across the French crowd chanting, "F*** TRUMP, F*** TRUMP, F*** TRUMP!"

    LOL.

    In both 2015, as well as 2016, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published profiles of Justin Harris, a member of the Arkansas House of Representatives who we covered not so much for his radically socially conservative record or that he was a theocrat who wanted Bible studies to be an actual elective course in Arkansas schools, but for the fact that he was involved in a scandal where he adopted two girls, then decided they were afflicted by demons, tried performing exorcisms on them, and then "rehomed" them with a former employee who he had fired who then started molesting the girls (all the while, collecting subsidies on his adopted children, who he no longer had in his home). Revoltingly, nobody registered on the ballot against Harris, and this story broke almost literally at the deadline to file for the 2014 elections... so he won another term in office unopposed. Because "rehoming" adopted children was legal at the time in Arkansas, he was not found to have committed a crime, but ignored calls to resign from office during the scandal. In fact, the self-righteous tool got on social media to quote scripture about being unfairly accused, and the Lord would "laugh at the wicked", showing us all that he felt HE was the real victim. Republicans and conservatives in Arkansas seem way too comfortable with his sordid history, as somehow, don't ask me how, he was given the “Power Of Courage” award by “The Family Council Action Committee” for how he “demonstrated courage by standing strong in faith when situations were tough at the State Capitol and they did so with grace" and was "consistently a model of Christian values in his home, community, and church.” Unless the FCAC was giving this award out ironically, I think they need their heads checked. Let's just be glad that Harris will no longer be a fixture in government, at least.

    On this date in 2017, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published its profile of Wendy Long, a two-time loser in attempts to be elected to the U.S. Senate in New York. In 2012, she allowed Sen. Kristen Gillibrand to win her Senate seat by the largest margin in New York history. In 2016… well, given how Sen. Chuck Schumer was one of the more popular senators in his home state, there weren’t a lot of GOP candidates looking to line up to take a crack at him… he was thought to be more formidable than even Gillibrand four years earlier. But, some New York pundits started trying to chip away at Schumer’s support with the Jewish community after the Obama administration and Democrats managed to approve a treaty to curb Iran’s nuclear program that they felt was too lenient. That opened the window that maybe someone could give Schumer a run or his money… and unfortunately for Republicans, the only candidate that came through that window was Wendy Long. After all, Wendy Long has been a friend to lunatic conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza for a quarter century now, going all the way back to when both were in college together and while working on the school newspaper “accidentally” published an excerpt from Hitler’s Mein Kampf about how “warding off the Jews was doing the Lord’s work”, on Yom Kippur of all days. D’Souza actually managed to try and act like he was the victim after the two were forced to apologize for the actions of an “unnamed staffer”. Anyhow, D’Souza was convicted of election fraud, believed to have been in his attempts to get his old pal Wendy elected by making illegal straw donations to her campaign. Well, Long was already established as wanting to govern as a Catholic, outlawing abortion, gay marriage, and wanting to even push back against birth control. She eventually couldn’t pretend to be sane any longer herself, and got on Twitter to post about how a neighborhood had become crime infested after a “mosque displaced a church”, earning her the criticism of her own party. She was only warming up. Wendy Long started speaking in front of the Oath Keepers, the infamous anti-government militia group that will support anyone who lets them still have easy access to guns, and not be treated like the paranoid domestic terrorists that they are. Again, Wendy was keeping some interesting company. Finally, she hyperbolically referred to Chuck Schumer as an “enemy of the Constitution”, at an event that declared him one of the Oath Keepers’ “dirty dozen Marxist traitors in America”. Wendy Long only got 27% of the vote against Schumer. Considering she had yet to pay off over a quarter of a million dollars in debt from her FIRST attempt to be elected to office, she probably should have probably sat out her second one or spent the money on a good therapist.

    On this date in 2018, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” published a profile about Gary Emineth, who was a 2018 candidate for U.S. Senate in North Dakota, and please do note the past tense we used in that introduction. Eminith is by no means a political outsider, though, having served several years as a member of the Republican National Committee and as the Chairman of the North Dakota GOP. He last ran for a seat in the North Dakota state legislature back in 1984, and 34 years later, he decided to take a crack at U.S. Senate. The main problem with Emineth’s candidacy was that he apparently forgot all the horrible things he had posted on Facebook over the past several years that were collected by CNN’s K-File, and got reminded of them, one after another, in a live interview back home. Perhaps the most inflammatory post was Emineth submitting a poll question to his followers as to whether or not there should be a government ban on mosques. (For those who paid attention in basic civics courses, such a ban would be a violation of the First Amendment on the grounds of violating someone’s freedom of religion.) Anyway, a stammering Emineth could only defend that by saying he “only retweeted it”. But that wasn’t the only thing that was found on his Facebook page. There was also a post where Eminith complained about “a bunch of Arabs” during a protest by Palestinians against Israelis (hint: not Arabs) and another where he referred to President Obama as a “POS”, and he gave several explanations for what the abbreviation was supposed to mean, before settling on it being a typo and he meant to type “POTUS”. There was then a third post that compared people on welfare to wild animals that shouldn’t be fed, which Emineth didn’t deny that meaning of, and that he actually was making a valid point. Needless to say, it wasn’t long thereafter that Emineth realized he wasn’t going to help his party win a seat in the Senate, and Emineth’s candidacy literally only lasted about a week and a half. Instead, Emineth submitted himself as a candidate for the North Dakota State Senate, choosing instead to challenge Democratic State Senator Erin Oban in District 35 of the State Senate, and still lost in that race by about 9% of the vote. We’re going to retire his profile at this time, and go ahead and take a look at a different kooky Republican today instead. (Current crazy/stupid scoreboard, is now 764-40, since this was established in July 2014.)

    Jazmina Saavedra

    Welcome to the 764th original “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” profile, where today we’ll be discussing Jazmina Saavedra, who ran for Congress to try and be the U.S. House Representative for California’s 44th Congressional District. Saavedra, a dedicated Trump supporter who is already out of her gourd enough to be one of the few “Latinos for Trump” (she’s an immigrant from Nicaragua… and… apparently doesn’t seem to realize she’s not Trump’s kind of person…) and her top priority in Congress was to see to getting the border wall built. If there’s not already enough hypocrisy to make you sit down, Saavedra seemed to think embracing the very worst kinds of bigotry that Republicans can muster would be a great way to fundraise, and decided to stalk a transgender woman around town, then post a live video to Facebook where she did her best to gather a mob of customers from around a Denny’s restaurant when that woman used the restroom to storm in to harass her.


    Now, Denny’s has never had a reputation as a chain restaurant of having the best example of tolerance… but they were quick to apologize after the video dropped. Facebook did one better, and banned Saavedra from their platform for violation of terms. Suffice to say, this did not prove to be a winning strategy in a blue-leaning district in a year where Republicans got shellacked in California, and Saavedra was under criminal investigation for her actions.

    Jazmina Saavedra somehow was still the top Republican candidate for this seat at the polls, finishing with a whopping 10% of the vote in the primary, and failing to qualify for the general election. She manages to get kicked out of bars and restaurants and play the victim, even in red states. We can only guess that if she continues her bathroom crusade it will eventually result in her getting jail time for harassment, or at the very least, someone throwing something out of a stall at her mid-use. We’d be fine with either result.
