“Governing was always difficult for conservatives, but as they return to the opposition, they are rediscovering their skill at blame evasion.”

    The Mueller Report has been leaked to AP.  It reveals that Donald Trump stinks!

    Great God Almighty.

    Trump stinks!

    Barack Obama was not a Socialist. Not even a socialist.

    Not perceived as one either- not by Ds, Us or anyone serious.

    I mean more like Sanders, Jerry Brown, or Elizabeth Warren.

    This is what leadership looks like. After 50 people are gunned down at worship by a hate-filled man with assault rifles, New Zealand prime minister implements ban on military weapons for civilans.

    Not just "thoughts and prayers". Not just being "shocked and sad". Not just "We'll fund mental health services……someday." That's all appropriate, but New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern is starting with getting the assault guns under control.


    New Zealand will go the way of fellow down-under state Australia, which banned assault rifles in 1996. You have to have a license to possess a firearm in Australia – update it yearly, prove why you want/need a gun, pass mental health screenings. Annd….no mass shootings since 1996.

    It's what we need to do in the US.

    Recording reveals oil industry execs laughing at Trump access

    They'll watch the world burn as long as they can do it from a penthouse or a yacht.

      It's worse
      They don't care about the penthouse or the yacht.
      Their only concern is that their situation is measurably better than others'.

      You got 2 bedrooms and a bathroom? They got 3/2.

    Last day of the (45th) annual Denver March Powwow (Denver Coliseum) . . .

    QOTWE:  Why, whenever Alva/Wordpress jacks up this site, and someone points it out, is there always some helpful soul(s) suggesting that the problem is you and/or your browser?  

    (I mean, like their best solution to Alva’s/Wordpresses’s problems would be that they would ever switch their computer operating system, or even their superduper browser, just to post their gibberish and nonsense on this site??? . . . )

    . . .

    . . . I guess it must be a law, or maybe in the Colorado constitution, or something??

    My operating system this weekend, as we approach Day 800 of America’s being held for ransom, is Super Lemon Diesel and Bacardi Ron 8 Anõs (. . . btw, that’s “ōchō”, not “āte, gabachos . . .) . . .

    The Trump Crime Family's odds of being prosecuted (and convicted) under the RICO Act are looking pretty good:

    Federal and state prosecutors were pursuing about a dozen other investigations that largely grew out of Mr. Mueller’s work.

    Even as the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, submitted his confidential report to the Justice Department on Friday, federal and state prosecutors are pursuing about a dozen other investigations that largely grew out of his work, all but ensuring that a legal threat will continue to loom over the Trump presidency.

    Most of the investigations focus on President Trump or his family business or a cadre of his advisers and associates, according to court records and interviews with people briefed on the investigations. They are being conducted by officials from Los Angeles to Brooklyn, with about half of them being run by the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan.

    Unlike Mr. Mueller, whose mandate was largely focused on any links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, the federal prosecutors in Manhattan take an expansive view of their jurisdiction. That authority has enabled them, along with F.B.I. agents, to scrutinize a broader orbit around the president, including his family business.
