High Crime

March 07, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Noah Feldman, Bloomberg columnist and constitutional law professor at Harvard, published an op-ed yesterday that raised an issue that I hadn’t considered since SCROTUS’s latest Tweet storm; falsely accusing a former president of an impeachable offense is…wait for it…an impeachable offense.  CJ accused President Obama of ordering the FBI to wiretap the campaign offices at Cheeto Tower which is clearly against a whole host of state and federal laws; if true, those crimes would result in criminal prosecution and impeachment.  It’s not true, of course, and Feldman’s argument is that this accusation is not protected under the First Amendment since defamation is not protected.  Additionally, unless evidence is produced supporting this accusation, the consequences cannot by asymmetrical; that is, a false accusation of an impeachable offense is in itself cause for impeachment of the accuser.

Now, I’m not stupid enough to believe that Congress, dominated by drooling Neanderthals and idiots, will do anything approaching an impeachment proceeding, but it’s just one more thing to add to the list of offenses that grows daily.

In the wake of news organizations pulling out of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, SCROTUS just announced he is not attending. Of course, he did it on Twitter. He’s trying to avoid the huge  embarrassment of being savaged by unrelenting truth.

And Then, There’s This…

Then –

Now –

For some weird reason I can’t explain, this comparison reminds me of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones:

In any case, I’m not feeling well.  Not at all.

What His Campaign Staff Learned that WH Staff Has Not

February 23, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

During the campaign, Cheeto Jesus’s senior staff was able to somewhat curb his twitter wars was to provide him a steady stream of praise by planting stories in conservative media like Breitbart, Infowars, and Daily Caller who would dutifully print them.  As long as his ego was stroked, he would tend to not get into as many twitter wars.  The new WH staff has not been successfully keeping his ego fed, and the result has been his late night drunk tweeting, gloating about his electoral win and ridiculing (companies, political opponents, television stars, foreign leaders; put your victim here) ________________.

So, the new SCROTUS has an ego so fragile that the only way to minimize his school yard bullying on Twitter is to keep him soothed with praise?  God help us.


Where’s the Outrage? In Florida, Apparently.

Remember all the howling during the Obama administration about the “Vacationer in Chief”?   Or the “Golfer in Chief”?  What was so ridiculous is that the same howlers were silent during GWB’s over 1,000 days on vacation during his presidency.  Well, the howlers are all silent again but what’s amazing is that they are silent about the new SCROTUS’s soaring vacation costs.  Since January 20th, he’s taken 3 jaunts to Mar-a-Lago, courtesy of the US taxpayer, costing $11.3 million.  Yes, $11.3 million in 4 weeks, almost equaling an entire year of the Obamas’ travel costs.  The noise from the screaming tee vee heads and congressvarmints?

Jake Tapper On Conspiracy Theories and Actual Facts

Last night, Jake Tapper of CNN finally got enough of SCROTUS’s insults and “fake news” twitter attacks on the media.  He let loose with a comparison of conspiracy theories and actual facts.  It’s pretty entertaining.
