"Fam We Are A Full-On Authoritarian Kleptocracy"


  

          

first this:
https://twitter.com/mschlapp/status/1096180928420950017

a week later:
https://twitter.com/cnnbrk/status/1098281655066865664

trump installs an ag to replace the previous ag he fired solely because he rightfully recused himself from overseeing the mueller probe.

mueller now 'wrapping up' despite several ongoing investigations and work with dc us attorneys office still developing.

meanwhile family members of the new ag are being oddly re-positioned. his son-in-law just joined the white house legal team. and his daughter just joined the financial crimes division of the treasury that deals with money laundering.
https://twitter.com/EdwardTHardy/status/1096398723213455362

his handpicked choice to replace rosenstein as deputy ag (the job in the doj with the most hands-on responsibility)? someone with zero doj or prosecutorial experience. oh and he also happens to be the right hand of mitch mcconnells wife at the department of transportation and long time friends with barr.
https://twitter.com/CBSEveningNews/status/1098244240637915136

blatant corruption and nepotism like this (and trumps fam) doesnt happen in healthy democracies.

people should be viewing america through the lens of a worldwide trend of democracy backsliding. because the same playbook has been repeating itself through several similar variations in different countries.

the president of once-democratic turkey gutted his police force and killed a wide-ranging corruption investigation into him and his appointees.
https://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/08/world/europe/turkey-corruption-inquiry.html

the same thing is taking place here.

while the media fascinates itself with kamala harris rap trivia and elizabeth warren 23andme results...banana republicans are systematically dismantling checks and balance on the way to establishing one-party rule.



sidenote: over 100k votes in georgia election disappeared...largely in black precincts...and nobody cares.

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/02/12/georgia-voting-states-elections-1162134

did the machines (with no verifiable paper trail) undercount votes in the lt gov race...or did they overcount votes in the gov race?

just to maintain some sense of cultural superiority (by the voters) and loot the economy (by the robber barons/oligarchs). both by force against the popular will of the majority of citizens.

ignoring corruption, inhumanity...even their own vitality and well-being (in the case of the voters).

the complete moral rot of the conservative movement just to achieve narrow political/ideological ends.

You read about people from back then, guys like Buchanan and the John Birch Society and it should have been so easy to stop them before they got any kind of mainstream traction, back when (the consensus was) that hard right conservatism was dead.

But you'll never go broke appealing to racists.

Because he was (rightly) seen as an extremist at the time, but in other ways he seems quaint and sensible compared to today's GOP.

No reason not to, really. The Republicans impeached Clinton, knowing they didn't have the votes, so they set that precedent in modern times.

17. "theres no guarantee we see the full mueller report."
In response to Reply # 5


  

          

the only thing legally required is a summary by the ag (or whoever oversees the special counsel) based on the confidential mueller report. but the summary can be edited/redacted/etc at the discretion of the ag.

https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/01/the-myth-of-the-mueller-report/

theres speculation about what dems in the house can do to make muellers findings public but if they get stiffarmed by a politically motivated doj and it heads to the supreme court...you know whos sitting there waiting.

republicans balked at protecting mueller and mandating full public disclosure of his investigation for a reason.

...Mueller report. The federal government leaks like a sieve. This administration REALLY leaks like a sieve. If it gets issued, it'll get out there some way.

Now if the Senate does anything about it is a legit concern. But we'll know what it's there.

In response to Reply # 28


  

          

but my understanding is that theyre are workarounds that congress can attempt (dem majority in the house since repubs wont lift a finger)...like hearings, doj/fbi/sco subpoenas, etc.

its imperfect and subject to various confidentiality rules (like only gang of 8 can see certain material above a certain clearance). but its a piecemeal approach to forcing info out into the public sphere (like mueller including investigation information in grand jury documents).

but the point is that it isnt legally set in stone...and thus challengeable/obstructable.

theyve been trying to pass bipartisan legislation mandating that the special counsel release a report directly to congress/public without ag interference. naturally its been held up in the senate by mitch mcconnell tho.

ultimately this may just be left up to the court of public/political opinion. strong circumstantial evidence suggesting collusion. one side buys it. one side denies it. and the 2020 election ultimately decides how the american people weigh in.

http://www.cnn.com/ALLPOLITICS/stories/1998/09/11/starr.report/

the independent counsel act requiring a full disclosure of the sco findings to congress expired after the clinton investigation. which is part of the reason we are here.

And maybe it leads to articles of impeachment or maybe the Senate balks. But the idea that "we're not going to see the full Mueller report" is a bogus one.

I was gonna highlight specific parts I wanted explained but ... might as well dig into all of it.

What exactly gives you this confidence ? What judges/court filings/prosecutors are you referring to and so confident in, in this specific situation ?

What gives you such high confidence that "white collar criminals eventually get theirs," relative to this specific situation ?

This shit is ALL unprecedented, and the deck is stacked and continues to be stacked.

Trust me - I want to share in your optimism - but I'm full on panicking at this point. Haha. So I'm hoping you have something that will talk me off the ledge.

i root for your sense of optimism to become reality but i have a hard time sharing it.

i mean...trump done purged doj/fbi starters *and* bench players that he himself appointed. without any imminent legal accountability on the horizon.

everything they said he couldnt/shouldnt do...he has done. and we move on.

During the Obama years judicial confirmations were ground to a halt so slowly that they had to abolish the 60 vote threshold

During the Trump years they have accelerated and confirmed judges at the fastest rate in history and a number of them have been rated unqualified by their oversight boards.

21. "facebook/twitter were the great equalizers."
In response to Reply # 11


  

          

gave anybody anywhere in the world the means to change regimes anywhere else in the world for pennies on the dollar.

all without firing a single shot.

in the end...social media will have pretty much killed journalism, democracy, and reality itself.

Book stores, alot of malls have died because people shop online, etc. It cut alot of middle men out of things: radio stations, newspapers, bookstores, retailers, etc.

In response to Reply # 21


          


Agreed. People think Russia (or whoever) has to actually change votes to f*ck with our elections.

I shudder to think about the number of Americans who get their news from a combination of Facebook, email forwards, and Fox News.

Have you read the comment sections at places like yahoo lately? Assuming they are real people, folks literally exist in their own reality.

It damn near seems quaint at this point. Obstensibly, it could be aruged that Reagan was breaking the law for noble purposes. I don't think people thought then he was in it for the money.


Meanwhile Trump's folks are trying to get nukes to Saudia Arabia, who never accounted for properly for 9/11, for what? To make some money?

37. "Yea these are two of the threads I referred to in my post ..."
In response to Reply # 31


          

... in the original Mueller thread, that eased my initial panic quite a bit. Another of these Twitter esquire types said something to the effect of "if you've been a believer in Mueller since day 1 now's not the time to jump off that bandwagon - he knows what he's doing." or something to that effect.

media needs to button up. this shit is way too important to be fucking up.

remember how trump and mueller were supposed to be headed on a collision course for a subpoena battle over a face to face interview...but then mueller submitted some written questions...trump submitted some written answers...mueller said they were unsatisfactory...trump said he wasnt answering any more...and everyone just moved on...according to the media?

Hard to find the words anymore.

"Calling himself 'the chief law enforcement officer of the country,' the president on Tuesday renewed his attacks on the criminal justice system, demanded a new trial for his friend Roger Stone, and granted clemency to several white-collar criminals."
