The guilty pleas of Michael Cohen and the jury convictions of Paul Manafort have changed the conversation about and around Donald Trump, including the president’s gobsmacking statement that it’s unfair when people in trouble with the law cooperate with federal authorities (“flipping”). What does it all mean, and where do we go from here? Give a listen.

    Yes Duke Cunningham, I remember him well… Um, I don’t think he mattered – the country was rightfully pissed off that we went to war in Iraq and made things worse based on a false premise. We’re still paying for that awful mistake today. (Troops still in Iraq fighting an insurgency that would never have existed without our initial involvement, and an un-won war in Aphganistan).

    I think John misses an important point

    the people voting to stop the liberals from taking over the government hear what their voters want, which is, we want those voters to hurt.

    Which is why I changed my voter registration. I’m in California. Doxing is sport for the Left.

    Also, the whole reason for the “Trump is an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal effort to influence the election” narrative coming out of the Democrat playbook is that if Trump can be impeached for stealing the election, ergo Pence needs to leave too as he would not be in office were the election “fair”

    Good, then we would get Paul Ryan, he could pick Romney as his VP and order is restored to the world. Better do it quickly before Nancy Pelosi becomes President.

    Please tell me they aren’t going to act out the fake theatrics they predicted on previous podcasts. I’ve noticed they aren’t as immune to episodes of NYC elite hysterics as one might wish, even episodes they predicted.

    “Can you imagine a more sordid set of affairs?”

    Yes, easily. The Clintons have shown how low one can go. And until she does time for her national security related crimes and they pay in some painful way for their multi-million dollar fake charity and its anti-American collusion schemes, I am content to let Trump skate for his personal affairs. He screwed a slut and she was paid not to tell. He seems to handle such things like the bad boy that he is, compared to Clinton, who would be off to church and waving his Bible and wagging his finger at us as he denied it to our faces.
