Shaky Ground

30 years ago today. The earth shook. In San Francisco. 4-month old baby. New nanny. 27th Floor swayed. Aftershocks still resonate.

Now shifting political plates. Prez & Congress seismic clashing daily. Even Republicans quaking about Syria. Lackluster Democrat candidates. Need new people to stablize the temblors.

Romney? Kasich? v. Bloomberg? Oprah?

If It’s Tuesday …

The Yankees must have won the ALDS in a sweep. The Forty Niners must have crushed Cleveland. Trump must have done something nutty enough that even the Republicans are in revolt. See Nikki Haley.

Family’s recovered from the rollicking wedding in New England.

Everyone must have watched Succession. Okay. No spoilers anyway. Just a little tease. Blood sacrifice. Next week. Season finale.

Clueless v. Schiffless

A Petulant Adolescent President who has no clue what is right or wrong. A House Intel Committee Chair who is his own parody. Whew. At least there is one adult in the room. Speaker Pelosi. She rules with an iron gavel and a sound strategic view of the situation.

Then over at The View. Hillary continues to whine as she finds every reason not to take responsibility for her own money-grubbing lazy campaign mistakes. As Chelsea seems to blindly support that delusion.

And. Poor Bernie makes age now a real factor. That would seem to accrue to the youngest of the septuagenarians. Yes. Elizabeth Warren.

Predict of the Day

So. Today’s prediction. Actually it’s an old one for me. Just may happen sooner than expected. That Nikki Haley would become the first woman President of the United States.

Latest scuttlebutt. Nikki may challenge Trump for the Repub nom. Or. He may resign. And then she’ll be free to run. If so. Can she beat Biden? Warren? In the general election? Maybe we’ll see.

Sacrificial Joe

Dems have realized that Joe Biden is not the most electable. So decided to throw him under the bus. In order to get rid of Trump.

The Ukraine saga is better than fiction. With such characters as Hunter Biden, John Kerry’s stepson Chris Heinz, and Whitey Bulger’s nephew. Yeah. Maybe nothing illegal. But. Hey. It’s filled with swamp rats.

So. Biden’s star is tarnished with a Trump & Clinton-esque tale of a family’s personal financial gain from its political ties. Who benefits most? Warren. Or… careful what you’ve set in motion.

Will it ultimately be Trump?

Homelandia

For a TV-addicted Prez, it’s odd that he missed 8 seasons of HBO’s Homeland. He’d have learned that when you go to introduce yourself to the CIA, you shouldn’t diss their fallen heroes. Or. Constantly bash their former and current leadership. The Deep State may not be fictitious.

Yes. You crossed the wrong people. Saul, Carrie, Dar. They can’t even trust each other. What made you think they wouldn’t take you down? See Whistleblower. CIA. Hey. You asked for it.

Creating a Clamor

Clashing competitions to create a clamor. Democrats. Media. Trump himself. The attention-seeker-in chief. On a par with impeachment-crying-wolves. Calling for it since before the inauguration. There’s fodder for all. Biden’s son got rich ’cause Daddy was Veep. Trump kids on the hot seat, too. American people see politics, profits, ratings.

Accomplished. Nothing. Except. Lots of noise.
