A number of people are saying that Trump is now assured reelection because Mueller's report states Mueller found no collusion and Mueller didn't feel he had a case against Trump for obstruction.
The powers that be in the Democratic Party have made clear they aren't going to push for impeachment on other allegations already raised.
Trump is happy, but should he be? Maybe he's just putting on a happy face but is crossing his fingers the Democrats don't wise up and fight him the way they could if they were smart enough and take him down. Personally, I think he's more than a bit carried away and being dimwitted about it.
With the Mueller report turned in and the Attorney General having over viewed it for the salient, operative parts and having come to the conclusion that a case for obstruction couldn't stand up because Trump's intent was clearly ambiguous (a point I made from the start) and with the AG certainly telling the truth, the Democrats need to drop the whole matter, swallow their fool's errand, and start looking at Trump as he is and for what he's really done that merits, no, demands impeachment and removal from office: war crimes!
In addition, the Democrats must drop the whole "Russia, Russia, Russia" narrative about hacking. They didn't do it. The same liars who brought us the collusion "facts" brought us the hacking "facts." We know Julian Assange has said he knows it wasn't Russia that was the source. Craig Murray has published outright that he received the leaked materials directly and passed them to WikiLeaks. Craig has made clear that it was not the Russians. The hand off happened right here in the US and face-to-face.
The professional neocon liars heading the "intelligence community" at the time have a very long history of being caught lying, lying, and lying, even about their admissions of lying. They want enough time to go by that memories fade so they can twist history. The problem for them with that is we live in the Internet Age, and people save things where they can't be wiped (the way Hillary's team wiped her illegally used personal server in her basement).
The sooner all the Rachel Maddow dizziness ends, the better. The sooner we start examining and ripping to shreds Trump's economic, environmental, and international-relations travesties, the sooner a principled progressive will be sitting in the Oval Office as President of the United States of America.
I don't care if that person is a Jew or a woman or black, brown, white, or pink with purple polka dots. I care that the person is honest, so won't lie to us about anything, ever, no matter what, and won't conceal things that we need to know so we may make truly informed democratic decisions. I want someone who is for peace first, always. I want someone who cares more about the quality of everyone's life (even people in prison) than about money. There's plenty more I could add, but anyone starting with those qualities will almost always get things vastly more right than any President who's ever occupied the office.
Let the best person win. If that would be an old, white, male, gentile, I couldn't care less. If that would be a young, brown, female, fill-in-the-blank, I couldn't care less. I don't care which "segment" hasn't been President yet. I only care about who's best for the job right now!
Who's going to push through as much democratic socialism of the real kind as possible?
We do not have a monetary constraint. We have a vision deficit that can, and must, be corrected. We need ideas, equipment, materials, and human work. Price inflation comes when supply can't meet demand. We need to plan supply for what is demanded not by dollars being held out to the suppliers but by democratic votes saying what we want. First come the votes, then come the dollars to pay for the ideas, equipment, materials, human work, and then final purchasing of the voted for, demanded goods and services. The money comes from ourselves, from our government we own. It's created without borrowing it from anyone.
All I've done is substitute votes for dollars. Instead the old saying "money talks," it would be "votes talk."
When we factor in a guaranteed living income well above the current poverty line, when we factor in free medical, free college, free grad school, and a number of other things that could be and should be free, votes would talk more and more relative to final purchasing. Money ends up simply being a democratic authorization for producers to produce what's needed and wanted.
We'll all end up engaged in the entire effort organizing and improving how to balance things and how to adjust for unforeseen circumstances, just the way business people do, only we won't go out of business until we vote to drop something.
The sky is the limit isn't even good enough to express the possibilities and potential.
There are naysayers pooh-poohing this. I say they need to stop being negative and rather start cooperating and helping. We need to come together to pull this off. We have to be one for all, and all for one.
Once we show good success, the whole world will join in. We'll see a healing planet in every way. We'll see more prosperity than thought possible. Every single person on the Earth will be much, much richer and without having to have money to be that.
