On topic of sanctuary cities, Trump, already sweating, asks a woman in the crowd how she feels about having "them released [into your neighborhood] -- hardened, horrible criminals."

He then pushes a big lie about voter fraud in California.

I remember where others have carefully forgotten that he has said that and/or versions of that often enough to believe that he will try something to stay in office. It all fits with the dynasty bit.

Trump’s collapsing presidency has plunged him into his ‘eccentric dictator’ phase: GOP consultant

In yet another scorching column for the Daily Beast, GOP consultant Rick Wilson used Donald Trump’s obsession with maintaining he was correct about Hurricane Dorian hitting Alabama as evidence that he gone completely off the rails and into his reality.

According to Wilson, “That bellowing you hear from the Oval Office may sound like the rantings of a kooky slowcoach accidental president of limited cognitive abilities. You could ascribe it to his obsessions and twitching, reflexive rages over even the slightest correction or disagreement as an act. We could blame it all on whatever slurry of toupee worms, mental illness, creeping dementia, tertiary syphilis, scurvy, and windmill cancer occupies his wee noggin, but it’s so much more, and it’s so much worse.”

Noting what has become known as “Sharpiegate,” after the president was busted for altering an official weather map to make his point about Alabama, Wilson said it is evidence of the president’s decline.

“Trump has entered the eccentric dictator phase of his presidency, so strap in,” he warned. “From Stalin to Mao to Mugabe to Pol Pot to Saddam to Trump’s sleepover bestie Kim Jong Un, Donald’s defining emotion is not contempt, but envy. These men enjoyed the life of power, wealth, control and freedom from accountability that fills Trump’s political spank bank.”

Wilson also noted Trump’s often-expressed desire to stay in office in perpetuity, writing, “Trump’s joking references to a third term are growing in number and intensity, and some part of his rat-nest consciousness is thinking, “I bet I could get away with it.” The 2020 efforts to kill off the Republican primary to clear the field for Trump are a preview. I mean, why bother with elections when there’s so much winning going on? ”

Then he brought the hammer down.

While First Term Donald’s modesty keeps him stuck in off-the-rack Brioni tater sack-cut suits with a skosh more room in the seat and thigh, Second Term Donald is going all out,” he wrote. “Doesn’t the POTUS with the mostest deserve his own Commander in Chief uniform? Something with hella epaulets and gold braid? The designers will need to leave plenty of room for medals; let no man forget his heroism at the Battle of the Bowling Green, his Defense of Alabama Service Cross with Sharpie Cluster, and his Purple Shart with Bone Spurs Device.

I remember his buddy Giuliani on TV right after 9/11--when, as mayor of New York, he was briefly a "hero"--looking directly into the camera and saying that instead of leaving office as scheduled, he was willing to stay on past his term limit. In fact, I think he even denied that term limits applied to New York mayors and got a bit belligerent about running for another full term past the period he had been elected for. (I may be fuzzy on some of the details.)

I remember being offended by the nerve of that guy--who did he think he was!

I guess he was just warm-up for the up-coming events--Trump crowning himself emperor of America!

What's with these Repubs. thinking elections are beneath them?

We'll stop laughing at this drivel the moment your fascist Leftist Democrats stop trying to overturn a valid election and remove a duly-elected American President by any means necessary.

What's with your Democrats, thinking elections are beneath them?

The US extracted one of its top spies from Russia in 2017, worried about exposure and Trump’s handling of intelligence.

If he loses, he'll claim the democrats cheated. Have his lawyers file motions in courts all across the country to keep it tied up for years. Impeachment is the only way to get him out of the oval office and even then they'll have to carry him out kicking and screaming. Since congress refuses to do anything about him be prepared for him to be president for the next 20 years or so unless all the fast food catches up with him.

"Asset had risen to the highest levels of Russia’s national security infrastructure. US offered extraction months earlier during Obama administration, but asset refused. Asset’s information was crucial to IC assessment that Putin had directed election interference to favor Trump."

No one piece of this very intricate puzzle is going to be a "smoking gun", but when enough of the pieces are accurately placed, the picture will be crystalline.

Trump characterizes support for sanctuary cities as "disloyal to American citizens"

How does Trump explain support by American citizens for their sanctuary cities?

I'm a US citizen, and I support the sanctuary policy in Los Angeles.

There's rock solid evidence that the gop does cheat. Just ask the folks in NC who had to go through a special election because there was so much cheating by the gop on the first. Or ask the states who have been forced to redistrict because the gerrymandering they did to exclude minority and democratic voters was so extreme.

Trump was already claiming Dems cheated before he won the election. One thing remains true. Trump always accuses others of what he is doing.

I found this interesting

Donald Trump Isn’t H****r —He’s Like Goebbels

Reaching for Adolf H****r to arm the defenses against Donald Trump is a poor use of history: Trump is never going to be the monster that H****r was.

Joseph Goebbels is a different matter.

Had Goebbels been around today he would probably be the master player of the media—of any or all media. He would have grasped and exploited the ubiquity of social media. He would have relished the random distribution of defamatory vitriol via Twitter. In fact, few people have ever understood the technique of selective messaging better.

Goebbels was H****r's indispensable genius of spin. Long before the Nazis came to power, Goebbels understood what had to be done to gain that power. Fundamentally the German public needed to be made to happily acquiesce in the idea that the nation needed a demagogue to right its grievances.

It was Goebbels who proved that if falsehoods were repeated often enough they became, in the minds of the ignorant and aggrieved, facts. You never apologized. He proved that the selection of a false enemy was essential as a target of aroused bigotry. That, too, required constant repetition to create the hated “other.” Although “the other” lived peaceably as a minority in the population it should be characterized as inimical to the interests of the ethnic majority.

The minority had disproportionate influence and power. They threatened the jobs and well-being of the majority. They would forever be alien and had no legitimate place in the society.

The ultimate triumph of Goebbels was to build out from the initial Nazi party base of the ignorant and gullible to reach and win the compliance of the German elites—political, commercial, academic, and military. These elites were effectively intimidated and disarmed by Goebbels who inculcated in them a fear of being seen to be unpatriotic, of not buying into the required supremacy of the Third Reich that would reinstate Germany to its rightful status. In other words, to make Germany great again.

Dr. Joseph Goebbels, as he had then become, was sworn in as Reich minister for popular enlightenment and propaganda on March 14, 1933, at the age of 35, six weeks after H****r came to power. H.R. Knickerbocker, a columnist for the New York Post, reported from Berlin that much of the credit for H****r’s success should go to Goebbels, “the greatest master of public management that Europe has ever known, and the best orator.”Physically he was an unlikely candidate to become such a mesmerizing speaker: slightly built with a skull-like gauntness in the face, a shrill voice, and a physical disability. He was born with a right foot that failed to grow. Doctors told his parents that he would be “lamed for life” and after a failed operation at the age of 10 he knew that he would thereafter have to walk with a clubfoot. His mother, deeply religious, regarded the handicap as a punishment inflicted by God.

There was nothing impaired about Goebbels’s intellect, once he geared it to the Nazi cause in the 1920s. He had been greatly influenced by a book called Psychology of the Masses by Gustave Le Bon and adapted its message to the art that he made his own, political propaganda.

“Berlin needs sensations as a fish needs water,” he said, in an edict that today could well come from the mouth of a reality TV producer, “any political propaganda that fails to recognize that will miss its target.”

Watching the new minister in action, the American ambassador to Berlin, William Dodd, reported to President Roosevelt, that Goebbels was a master orator and “far cleverer” than H****r

Fomenting and channeling the anger of the Nazi base also required that they should come to see the press as the common enemy—if the press opposed the Nazis they were opposing the people. If the word had been around, he would have called them sleaze. Goebbels began a systematic assault on the independence of newspapers.

Many newspapers were, he said, “messengers of decay.” Within a year the Nazis had shut down all newspapers owned by Jews (including one that had rejected a job application by Goebbels a decade earlier) and any paper suspected of left wing or liberal sympathies. Editors of the remaining papers who failed to give the party unblinking support could be removed, and even end up in a concentration camp.

The same happened to the country’s radio stations. Goebbels summoned the owners and managers of all the radio broadcasters and told them: “We make no bones about it: the radio belongs to us, to no one else! And we will place the radio at the service of our idea, and no other idea shall be expressed through it.”

Amid a gang of rabid anti-Semites, Goebbels stood out as a fanatic, more open in his hatred than even H****r. He and H****r had agreed that Jews should be eliminated from the “body of the German Volk.”...........................
