Perhaps the comment was rude, but yours was ignorant. Sometimes rudeness has a purpose and a justification.

So, we take it that your position is the cabinet version of "if nominated, I will not run, if elected I will note serve." William Tecumseh Sherman would be proud.

Only Rudy Giuliani thinks that outside events extend terms of office.

Trump has simply raised to a new label the Hitlerian practice of "The Big Lie."

I thought the first thing you do is a spell check and then proof read. But it appears the Kracken Releaser does neither.

I post this every year for one of my favorite Thanksgiving day traditions. I present: Alice's Restaurant Massacree: the receipts.

This is likely the 1st of many rulings from the new conservative majority that, in the guise of protecting "religious liberty," will in fact favor religious institutions over a wide range of civic goals, like equality based on sexual orientation. Steady drumbeat ahead.

On this Thanksgiving, I’m thankful that our next president unveiled a national security team full of highly competent professionals and devoid of unqualified businessmen, grifters, Twitter trolls, fanatics, sycophants, and relatives of the president.

The idiocy continues, but now at SCOTUS.

Nope. If a president acted as president for two years or less in a term where another was elected as president it is not counted in the 2 term limit.

What I wish I had was a good recipe for the Dutch apple cake I would always had in Amsterdam when I was a GI in Europe.

And my mother's pickled herring, which she admitted even she didn't like but served it because it was always part of her mother's Christmas tradition

With the pardon, Judge Sullivan is done as to those charges. However, if the pardon doesn't address the perjury to the court itself, Sullivan can address that issue and hold Flynn in criminal contempt. A perjury prosecution, however, would need new DoJ charges. /e

A person pardoned need not plead guilty to anything. If he is pardoned, of course he has no 5th Amendment Right as to the offenses for which he receives a pardon. But, again, there is no obligation to plead guilty. Ex: Nixon never plead guilty in connection to his pardon. /2

No offense, but don't bet on that horse. The pardon power is broad. If a President issues a pardon for an unlawful purpose, the President can be guilty of a crime but the pardon is nonetheless effective. 1/

Pence is too ambitious. He knows that a pardon for Trump will put Trump in a better position for 2024. If he stands firm, Pence can say he let the system function as it should. But in truth, Pence does not want to be placed in that position. Being POTUS for a week isn't worth it.

I've never met a former soldier of Flynn's that respected him or was proud to work for him. He was a toxic leader who belittled his subordinates and stole their work as his own. It was always about him moving up the ladder. He took the pardon because he is guilty. He's a traitor.

In his confirmation hearing, Bill Barr said that the pardon Trump just provided would be a crime.

I guess we have to wait a see the wording. He could have done "a Ford" and pardoned Flynn for all offenses committed before today, charged or not.
