That omnibus bill may be as deadly to the GOP as an entire phalanx of Roy Moores.

From scores of MAGA CHUDs raging on Twitter at the surprise resurgence of despised neocon Bolton to /pol/ cheerleaders desperately warning not to heed the "shills" telling them that God Emperor Dennison just shit the bed by funding PP & passing gun control while bailing on the sacred Magic Wall O' Freedumb, the panic in Banjostan has been truly epic.

Sunlight disinfectant at work & play: Cambridge Analytica is the Black Ops action arm of the Kulturkampf sector that's suddenly become less of a long-term menace than the likes of Burson-Marsteller or Sinclair. The proof is that Darth Bannon & Co. are likely now on the hook for buku felonies galore - neither Julian Sinclair Smith nor Don Baer will ever lose a night's sleep in fear of a subpoena, let alone an indictment.

Jack reminds me of Tim & Tom, our BIG battle-scarred twin tabbies who kept life interesting by constantly using our basement as the Sibling Octogon in which they sincerely strove to kill one another. Mom literally had to pry them apart with a broomstick to save them from each other's wrath - & those motherfuckers were circa 10 kilos of solid muscle & scar tissue each. Even into their teens they just kept getting their vendetta on at every opportunity. I once saw one of them pwn a German Shepherd. Tabby is Cat for "HARDCORE."

So I guess they snuck a bunch of stuff into the spending bill, and whoever managed to pull that off deserves a nice cake, perhaps in the shape of a dagger...
So I watched videos of children verbally stomping Republicans into the dirt this morning, and I was already feeling inspired, then I listened to the podcast and heard about the nuts and bolts of dismantling the Republican attack in Illinois, and I thought to myself "Hmm, I don't really like Gavin Newsom very much, and I don't trust him to manage the sixth largest economy on the planet, but he is a liberal, and it's looking more and more like he will win, so perhaps he learned more than I think he did from Jerry Brown while he was Lt. Governor..."
Because I feel that California really can't drop the ball right now, politically speaking, if we want 2020 to be better than 2016 was.

Anyway, thank you again for the podcast, and I'm looking forward to seeing the Duckworth baby sweater...

He is pivoting! But what about Gorsuch?

The Trump that dishonorably attacked the judge handling his University fraud case is now nominating judges and his GOP Congress are bragging of their assembly line confirmations of judges that never were in a court room and may have completed an on line para legal class.

Bolton doesn't have to be confirmed. But republicans would confirm him.

It is my humble opinion that if Trump nominated David Duke to head up the Civil Rights Section of the Justice Department.

The republican senators would confirm him in a heartless beat.

It is clear the Iran Nuke deal is one of Obama's policy in place and Trump and GOP need it to go. pave the way for instability and military aggression.

Bolton is going to be the war salesmen. Do you want to refinance your emergency supplemental war funding bill at a fixed rate?
