Gotham City Digest, 12/22/19

He will bury himself.

     Orrin Hatch, the world's youngest mummy, says he doesn't care if a fellow Republican crook is in the WH. But take heart, peeps. He'll soon be replaced by Senator Mitt Romney, the world's most dangerous game show host.

     Sure. The military will build the wall for free. Just like when he rounded up a bunch of undocumented Polish laborers, paid them under minimum wage and let them go crazy like with tRump Tower.

     Time Magazine just made journalists the Person of the Year, among them Jamal Khashoggi. This is gonna make Trumpie the Clown's double-woven head explode.

     So, while we're subjected to Luddite Republicans at the House Google hearing and proving with their stupidity and conspiracy theories that internet illiteracy is indeed a partisan thing, this is the dog and pony show going on in the Oval Office. Who are these 10 terrorists that Trump claims to have caught? And where in the new NAFTA deal did Mexico agree to pay for the wall? Republicans simply live in an alternate universe and they're invading ours while trying to substitute our reality with theirs. That's all there is to it.
     This is what Trump said to "Chuck" and Nancy in the Oval Office before the press. "If I don't get my way (on border wall) I will shut down the government." "If there is a shut down it will be my shut down." “I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck.”
      If and when there's a government shutdown over this, look for him to blame Chuck and Nancy and all the Democrats despite these words.

     This is a map of the states that have ratified the ERA and the ones who hadn't. Not surprisingly, the ERA wasn't ratified in the redneck states. Even Texas passed it. We need one more state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment that started in 1974. I cannot believe this is still an issue.

     Even though I hated having Obama as president, I miss having intelligence and sanity in the White House. Who else is with me on this?

     Lame duck House Majority Leader claims Democrats shouldn't worry too much about impeaching Trump. Yeah, he'd love that. This clown also once said the purpose of congressional oversight was to bring down Hillary Clinton's poll numbers. The hypocrisy of the GOP is simply breathtaking.

     Because, fuck what Pelosi said. Nadler's got the right idea. All that remains to be seen is whether he follows through on it.

     The third point brought up by Cillizza is, I think, the most important and potentially most damning part of the Friday afternoon court filings:
"3. Cohen lied to Congress about the nature and extent of his involvement in trying to cut a deal on Trump Tower Moscow with the Russians to hide 'the fact that the Moscow Project was a lucrative business opportunity that sought, and likely required, the assistance of the Russian government.'"
      Quite simply, this means the minute Trump threw his hat in the ring in June 2015, the Russians already had financial leverage on him. And this is because since at least 2013, when the Miss Universe pageant was held in Moscow, Trump began to vigorously pursue building a Trump Tower in the capital city.
      Later, of course, they would have more forms of leverage on him. And Cohen's second guilty plea only augments the possibility of the existence of the Steele Dossier.

     And even if the Democrats don't go after Trump, there's always Stepford Wife Betsy DeVos. My Xmas is looking up, already.

     One problem: If the world ends, your Apocalypse Doctorate will be useless.

     Meanwhile, in Cranston, RI, the school district has hired bill collectors to get lunch money. I swear to fucking Christ, lunch money. Remember the good old days when you were worried bullies were going to steal your lunch money?

     One of the latest from Dear Leader, our stable genius:

     Rigged hunt led by 17 angry Democrats snares another witch, according to the fake news.

     "Christian author who said atheists ‘exacerbate evil’ was cheating on his wife with two women." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯And finally...

     Rachel gets the last word on Michael Cohen's sentencing and Butina's plea deal. Let's hope that little red sparrow sings loud and long.

I criticized President Obama pretty consistently, but frankly, just having a steady hand that didn't throw out metaphorical bombs 6 times a day seems like the good old days now.

(I say metaphorical bombs, of course, because he was dropping actual bombs. About 65 times a day according to my calculations.)

Anyway, I guess there's no statute of limitations on amendment ratification? It doesn't matter that some of the states that once ratified it, like Texas, might not ratify it today if they were voting on it?

No statute of limitation of which I'm aware. Of course, the real trick is to get the states that had voted it down to get it back on the ballot.

From MJ:

I guess the ERA was special.
From NYT, https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/31/us/equal-rights-amendment-illinois.html:
Congress, which overwhelmingly approved the Equal Rights Amendment on March 22, 1972, set a seven-year deadline for three-quarters of the states to ratify it. The deadline was later extended to 1982 but that deadline passed with only 35 states on board. They needed 38.
