    Wolff’s Trump book dominates Amazon charts

    Source: The Hill

    BY MAX GREENWOOD – 01/05/18 10:19 AM EST

    As of late Friday morning, the hardcover edition remained in the No. 1 slot, while the audiobook sat at No. 13.

    Discussions of “Fire and Fury” consumed Washington this week as excerpts were published in the news media ahead of its official release. Those excerpts painted a portrait of a White House in chaos and contained provocative accounts of Trump’s campaign and time in the Oval Office.

    I remember a couple of weeks ago Hope Hicks had to go get interviewed by Mueller. I was curious as to why Hicks was being interviewed seeing as she was maybe Trump’s personal gofer or whatever. But now it seems she was on Air Force One when Trump concocted a lie about Don Jr.’s Trump Tower meeting with the Russians. I think all of the information that’s leaking out now has already been known by Mueller. It can safely be assumed that Mueller already has enough to charge Trump with obstruction of justice, he certainly has enough evidence to charge Don Jr. and Kush and the gang.

    • January 5, 2018 at 11:11 am

      Don,
      If I remember right….Dolt45 doesn’t read emails…they all go through Hicks.

      • 14 Don
        January 5, 2018 at 11:14 am

        That’s even better, so that means Hicks knows where all the bodies are buried. And best believe she’s not about to change from Chanel to prison khaki.

      I think you are spot on. Just waiting to see if the jackass talks more and further incriminate himself or others. I’d bet my house that he does.

    • January 5, 2018 at 5:24 pm

      I believe Mueller already knows the answers to the questions he’s asking these witnesses…. and seeing if they’ll attempt to lie & obstruct because they’ve been promised a pardon by some idiot attorney who’s stupid enough to take Trump on as a client, or have a functioning brain stem and will be honest, and confirm what Mueller already knows to be true.

      It also seems as though Mueller is working down the Chain of Command, rather than up. Trump confessed to Lester Holt regarding Obstruction on live TV. Mueller is now reeling in all the feeder fish….. the entire Executive Admin & the entire Congressional GOP.

      It’s why we keep getting weird OpEds attempting to discredit Mueller & the FBI from smaller and smaller fish.

    ‘I think the rest of the world will never see us quite the same’
    01/04/18 11:20 AM
    By Steve Benen

    Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said something in a radio interview yesterday that’s worth remembering.

    SiriusXM’s Pete Dominick asked Haass, who used to be a preeminent voice in Republican foreign policy circles before taking over the non-partisan CFR, about how foreign officials perceive Donald Trump’s presidency. Haass briefly reflected on international bewilderment before concluding:

    “I think the rest of the world will never see us quite the same. I know that sounds quite strong, but if this could happen once, why couldn’t it happen again?

    “I think the rest of the world will never put so many eggs in America’s basket again. I think the rest of the world will adopt something of a hedging strategy – because if this happened once, how do they know that there won’t be elements of this again in our future?”

      Yes yes yes, and for me it all goes back to the TPP. With the TPP we could have written the rules concerning trade and jobs and environmental issues. We could have even rivaled China as far as trade goes, but now China is truly the big dog on the block. From this moment going forward, every country will come at us from a position of strength, we can no longer call other countries out on their shit.

        We have always been hypocrites because we have not dealt with our own shit. It is right and proper that other countries look out for themselves and tell US to f**k off when our govt. is made up of ignorant, greedy, egocentric bullies.

    New California bill could serve as national boilerplate for skirting Trump’s tax law
    By Damian Paletta January 4 at 7:42 PM

    A California Senate leader introduced legislation Thursday aimed at circumventing a central plank in the new Republican tax law, introducing a model that — if successful — could be replicated across the country.

    California Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León (D) introduced a bill that would allow taxpayers to make a charitable donation to the California Excellence Fund instead of paying certain state taxes. They could then deduct that contribution from their federal taxable income.

    The MSM is mad because Wolff’s book confirms everything that our side has been saying from the beginning about Dolt45. They are mad because we have confirmation that our worst fears were true. And, they are mad because Wolff’s book is basically a whole barrel of receipts about their professional incompetence during the 2016 campaign.

    We have been digging our own graves since the English rose to ascendancy in this part of North America. They and their descendants have broken every treaty, committed genocide, gotten rich literally off the backs of those of African, Asian and Latino/Hispanic ancestry, raped the land of its resources, poisoned the air and water, and despised their own poor so much that they have used deceit (being poor is a virtue as long as you are White) to get them to vote against their own interest . The story that America told itself from Plymouth Rock to Reagan was never true and now time has run out for the Anglo/white patriarchy. They are trying to scorch and salt the earth on their way out, but out they will be. maybe then we can really build a country that is truly the “land of the Free” that city on the hill that is a beacon of truth, justice, equality, and opportunity for all. I am not sad, depressed, or hopeless. The ugliness that is being revealed daily was always with us and now more people are becoming aware that the America that they thought existed never did. Knowledge is power; now that we know the truth, what do we do with it.

    • January 5, 2018 at 12:33 pm

      Thank you CEB for that TRUTH. Sharing.

    • January 5, 2018 at 12:35 pm

      The America that we have always wanted has not lived up to the founding documents….there has always been a struggle…and that struggle continues to this very day to perfect our union…to make America live up to the Constitution and all of its Amendments…to fight for Justice….Freedom….Equality…..has been and continues to be on all of us …#Forward!!

      I don’t know if you saw this Langston Hughes poem that was shared a few days back, but the entire poem essentially says what you are saying [The story that America told itself from Plymouth Rock to Reagan was never true], yet, like you, he holds out hope for the country.

    North and South Korea to Hold High-Level Talks:
    http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/01/north-south-korea-hold-high-level-talks-180105063938493.html
    “The move followed an announcement by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that his country is “open to dialogue” with South Korea during a televised New Year’s address on January 1. Improving relations between the North and South is an “urgent issue”, he said, adding that the “entire Korean nation needs to put its efforts towards resolving [the crisis]”.

    My youngest teenage granddaughter in Florida has a couple little half-sisters and their Mom shared a little fun quiz she gave them … along with their answers. Keeping in mind my grandma name is “GG,” here was the last Q&A, which made me LOL. #TheyKnowMe

    Q: How much do you love me?
    A: “A lot” “to the moon & back” “more than the whole universe” “more than GG loves Obama”
