Stalin or Hitler

Anticipation has been my theme song as I wait for the Mueller report and Trump’s tax returns. It has been raining cats, dogs, gators, coons, possums, and even water for a week. We left inches behind and shifted to feet for measurement. As there has been an elevated chance of a power outage I have been turning things off during the worse of the storms. My UPS is only good for 20 minutes, and resetting a flooded transformer takes a couple of hours.

As he can’t stand life without crisis, the Child in Chief has decided to eviscerate the leadership of the Department of Homeland Security for a lack of loyalty and telling him that what he wants to do is illegal.

I thought about Stalin’s purges initially, but shifted to Hitler’s Nacht der langen Messer, “Night of the Long Knives” when acting under Hitler’s orders the Schutzstaffel [SS] arrested and later executed the leaders of the Sturmabteilung [SA “Brownshirts”] for a lack of loyalty to Der Fuehrer.

This seems to be part of a policy being pushed by Stephen Miller whose role in the White House appears to be similar to Rasputin [or Gríma Wormtongue for Tolkien fans]. The purpose of leaving the second most important security organization in the US government so bereft of permanent leadership appears to be to create a crisis that Trump seems to feel will help him win reelection.

Border apprehensions had been going down before Trump, but now they are going back up as his policies are making things worse in Central America. Instead of working on the source of the problem, he wants to waste money on “Wall”, his personal fetish object.

That about sums it up – Trump wants to put his name on something. The The Federal Correctional Facility in Marianna, Florida was damaged by Hurricane Michael. He could rebuild it and name the entire facility after himself and the individual cellblocks after his kids 😈

Funny you mention Hitler… Digby just made a post that’s pretty much on fire about that! I tweeted it.


Have you seen this about Epstein?


Humans really are mostly insane. *sigh*

All major creeps create a fake non-profit that they can use to avoid taxes. Some actually give money to good causes, others, like the former Trump Foundation are just scams that get shut down by regulators.

There are a lot of people comparing Trump with Nazi actions. He has ordered concentration camps along the border. They will call them detention centers, but they are concentration camps. The refugees have a right under US law to seek asylum and aren’t criminals, but Trump needs “others” to blame for everything that’s wrong.
