The president routinely travels to an exclusive members-only club that he owns, full of exceptionally rich and powerful people, and wants us to believe that he’s not just constantly working on the next grift for himself and his cronies while he’s there.

I think a lot about how a smarter aspiring politician with authoritarian impulses is watching this era and internalizing the message that you can skate through when your corruption and criminality are simply too frequent for the public to consciously parse.

Stone gag order, Epstein/Acosta, new NC election — and among the 12 top links right now on there are 10 about Jussie Smollett. The other two are a “campus clash” involving a "conservative activist" and the most boring animal story you could think of.

I recently read Bayou of Pigs, a book about some really dumb mercenaries planning on invading Dominica in the early 80s, and well, this has some echoes.

We probably don’t talk enough about how all the GOPers in Congress who have totally abdicated any responsibility to hold the president accountable for corruption and crime might be literally scared of what his base might do to them if they did.

Pretty excited to read the stories about how Smollett received like 26 times the coverage on network and cable news than the Coast Guard guy arrested with a hit list of Dems and media people and enough weaponry to invade Grenada

Just for example, I doubt I would have happened across all this fun stuff if I wasn’t sorting through un-digitized documents in a few presidential libraries.

I guess it makes sense to rethink this sort of thing for a digital era, but it probably does ruin some aspects of archival research.

Here is a random prediction: Trump loses in 2020, then spends months losing his shit on twitter, and at some point he tweets something not unlike his past semi-incitements to violence but more targeted (at the winner, whoever it is), Jack signs off on finally banning him.

there's a chance — just throwing this out there — that the Framers had some blind spots?

I’d say I’m serious about ~58% of this prediction.

Within another few weeks, Trump gets banned from Facebook for making the original semi-implied threat just absurdly explicit, and takes to Gab or whatever equivalent is the thing in two years or so to just start literally calling for people to blow up newspaper offices.

Then everyone drags Jack to hell and back for waiting until he was out of office, he gives like 6 interviews offering utterly inane explanations, and within a few weeks the DOJ and FBI arrest like 26 different people plotting to follow through on the implied threat in the tweet.

William Happer being allowed within shouting distance of any policy-making government climate initiative is as sure a sign that we’re circling the galactic drain as I can think of.
