And

Paul Manafort indicted: Trump’s former campaign chair facing charges in Mueller investigation
H/T Vox
It’s only money laundering and racketeering, but the real lever is what does he know about what the prezidunce knew, and when did the prezidunce know it?

Finally,

This week: Republicans to unveil long-awaited tax bill
H/T The Hill
Watch as the middle class and the ‘under-class’ get screwed, blued and tattooed, and the rich get lots richer…

And

The Memo: Trump tax reform nears crunch time
H/T The Hill
Salient quote is 1st paragraph:
“President Trump faces a stark question as he and Republicans in Congress move ahead on tax reform: Can he come up with a plan that helps the people who elected him, or will most of the rewards go to the richest Americans?”
Answer is obvious. The suckers who voted for him are easily grifted. He’s out for hisself, hisself and his wallet.

Finally,

‘Something fairly big is coming’: Ex-FBI double-agent predicts Russia bombshell after Trump evasions
H/T Raw story

Flake stuns with fiery exit

And

Service members see white nationalism as a bigger threat than conflicts in Iraq and Syria
H/T Raw Story
And this Vietnam veteran agrees with them.

Finally,

2-Party System? Americans Might Be Ready For 8
H/T NPR
I’m ready to throw both the bought and paid for political parties under a fleet of busses and go with a more parliamentary system that FORCES politicos to form coalitions and negotiate.

Open Thread, take it or leave it or do something gross with it.

Darkness: life in Puerto Rico without electricity

Congrats to the prezidunce for turning this part of Amerikka into a 3.5rd world situation. No power, no clean water…

H/T Politico
Appear to? APPEARS TO?? Give em Hell Johnny, what’s the ChickenS**t in Chief going to do, send you to ‘Nam?

And

Trump-backing Amazon worker counting on GOP tax cuts to help him ‘buy food and stuff’
H/T Raw Story
And here, my friends, is why Amerkka is in deep s**t. The few, the proud, the stoopid.

Finally,

Trump promises: ‘NO change to your 401(k)’
H/T The Hill
Right. And the Czech is in the mail. How did they stuff into the mailbox? P.T. Barnum was correct, and prescient.
Anyone who believes this promise deserves the impoverished retirement they’ll get.

Open Thread, Resist.

Welcome to Wednesday, why the hell is the d before the n?
Anyhoo, here’z the Gnuz

Why Trump Will Regret Passing Tax Reform
What else is keeping the GOP establishment in line behind him?
H/T Politico – Matt Latimer
This is an amazing read. Mr. Latimer hits the nail on the head repeatedly, and repeatedly, and…well, you get the idea…

And

President Trump admits he’s trying to kill Obamacare. That’s illegal.
H/T Vox
Oh, snap. More grounds for impeachment, or just another cup of weak moron cofeve?

Finally,

New health deal falls flat with GOP
H/T The Hill
You mean the Deal made between Senators Murray and Alexander? The BIPARTISAN bill that Trump first liked, then someone told him it had to pass the House.
The House, where it had no chance of passing. The passing of which would THEN render it unto his desk for signature?
Yes. That one. No wonder coward boy doesn’t like it any more. It’s a ‘loser’. Spite, malice, and failure to live up to his sworn oath of office.

Open Thread, rip it to shreds!

It’s Tuesday, so here’z the TuesGnuz…

Trump Blames ‘Generals’ For Telling Him Obama Didn’t Call Family Members
H/T C&L
Always has to blame others for his failures and lies. So, is he lying as he blames others for his bullsh***ing?

And

Trump’s Latest Obamacare Attack Triggers Rate Hikes, Lawsuits, Confusion
H/T TPM
Not just raising rates, but forcing insurers out of the market, huge swaths of people to not be able to afford health insurance, and costing the gummint billions…preziduncial.

Finally,

The 4 steps Republicans have to take to pass tax reform
H/T Vox
Phase 1: before cutting taxes, Republicans need to pass a budget
Phase 2: overcome key policy disagreements
Phase 3: actually go through regular order — or so they say
Phase 4: get this bill through the Senate’s obscure budget rules — which is the really hard part

Let’s have a pool on which phase(s) the Republican’ts will fall on their faces. Perhaps giving HeWhoShouldNotBeNamed a __________ fill in the medical condition you prefer…

Open Thread, let’s try to get through the week with our sanity intact.
