    If you really want to know what Trump wants, it’s really simple. Trump wants his father back so he can rub his nose in him having been POTUS.

    Trump keeps on hustling and huckstering, and it’s all about Dad.

    With men, usually it’s about Mom, but Trump’s mother wanted nothing to do with him.

    I’ve always had a hard time believing the “greater cost” notion as applying to California.

    This is an example, a cheap small house on a small lot for about 3/4 of a million bucks. A lot of almost exactly the same size is for sale on London Rd for 179K.

    That house would sell in Tennessee, lot and all, for maybe 100K, give or take a bit.

    My house, which is quite a bit bigger and on a lot that would make about fifteen of the one above, would certainly sell for less than 200K.

    Even if you assume grossly exaggerated costs for materials and labor it just doesn’t add up.

    I suspect it’s like healing after a terrible burn.

    Actually, since the DOJ decided that self pardons were garbage (see above) long ago, granting himself one means the DOJ would immediately challenge it in court.

    There are a lot of implied limits in the Constitution that aren’t spelled out, because the founders didn’t want to sound like idiots.

    Among other things, they assumed we know that no legal theory allows for any person being their own judge save that of a king. They were not setting up a new king, they made that very clear as well.

    To issue your own pardon would be to judge yourself.

    Any “scholar” who disagrees with that believes the constitution was written in a vacuum. And the only times you hear such a “vacuum constitution” argued is when someone has nowhere else to go to reach the conclusion they want.

    It’s much like all that “stolen election” evidence that can’t ever be shown in court, it’s in their heads.

    Just turn it off. Doubtless FAUX will shower him with fake tears. Like everything else FAUX does, fake.

    FAUX has a problem now, they’ve decided their issue was too much news and not enough opinion, so they’ve pretty much killed the news.

    OAN and Breitbart don’t have the bills for being on cable, and they can always win on crazy.

    And that’s a pity. They should arrest and hold him in the DC jail.

    I think the fellow running the place is agreeing with them.

    It might actually have worked with stringent controls on tax breaks to prevent money from going anywhere but into US investments and infrastructure. OFC, Reagan was APPALLED by such notions.

    At absolute worst, you’d have a dozen or so in congress dead and possibly Pence as well.

    Along with dozens of Trump’s mob. The cops would have quit threatening and started shooting to kill, which would have run out the mob pretty quickly.

    There simply is no chance of the government falling to this sort of nonsense, you’d require such a huge effort that it would have to be known in advance. It’s easy enough to “imagine” such a thing, but really hard to pull it off, given the way the federal government is so spread out.
