    The GOP right now is in total chaos; they ( Jordan & Meadows) want to get rid of Sessions; furthermore investigate Mr Steele a British citizen about the "dossier". ( I guess Trump can now totally forget it to visit Britain) Also on top of that started to investigate the Clinton's ( e'mails again, plus their "fund") Wow.

    My feeling is that all of this points to desperation; so this will be all diversion tactics without any result.

    In the meantime Trump is totally loosing it, because of the "book". He "tweeted" that he's the most intelligent person in the world as well the most "steady" person there is. Wow, who are you kidding?

    So how will all of this end?

    In Alabama , people came out to vote who ordinarily did not vote. The 46% of our electorate who did not vote November 2017 , are now waking up. If only 10% of them decides they need to vote , no republican can be elected. That is what I expect. Unless the democrat party decides to run another neo liberal kleptocrat .

    What the republican rampage is doing is waking up a sleeping giant. What the giant will do , is the question.

    The Moore fiasco really made people think. Does the end justify the means? Is it okay to have a crook for a leader if he gives good results? The people in Alabama, a group of people that Trump thought would forgo ethics and morality, displayed a very heartening side of America that I would like to think is what America is when it comes to making the right decision.

    In case you missed it, the Republican Party is in control of the House, Senate, Executive, and the Supreme Court.

    It may be chaotic, but at least Republicans realized that lining up behind their man, no matter how crazy he is, provided them the opportunity to reshape our courts for a generation or more. Democrats, on the other hand, are forced to sit on the sidelines until January 3, 2019 *at the earliest*. And I'm not holding my breath because the Senate map is horrendous for Democrats.

    It doesn't matter how this ends because the damage is already done. The Republicans stole a Supreme Court seat while Democrats continue to debate whether Bernie would have won or not.

    Republicans are ruthless and don't care how popular they are. It's been a pretty solid strategy for them since 2010.

    Thus Jared you admit that the checks and balances are out of the window; thus actually an dictatorship by the GOP and Trump, who never even read the Constitution, let alone the "book" or "bible". Congratulations America; a two party system is asking for such as well no proper "vetting" laws, an corrupt voting system "bought by billionaires" an "electoral college" which is "antique" and corrupt. No proper laws related to the Presidential powers ( there are some laws, but no real "ethic"enforceable laws at all) I could go on and on, but all of this is an self inflicted wound because people in this country lack proper education, like "cause and effect"; start at "A" instead of "Z" etc. etc. Basic sound laws are missing because of this, like the gun laws. Because of the "lobby" system everything is affected/corrupted by it and won't change for the better unless the whole lobby system is abolished.

    Again the "stealing" of the Supreme Court seat is again made possible due to no proper laws related to such appointment; like it should have been clear that that position was "open" under Obama so Obama should have been the sole person who could have made that appointment under "law" if it was properly written and enforceable. Thus not.

    "Republicans are ruthless "

    Lesson to be learned. And they win everything. For instance in Florida they are opening a law making session about awareness based on "eleven die in nursing home because of heat because of no power for air conditioners". This is the richest country in the world that passes laws enabling traders to make millions of dollars in micro seconds because of legalized front running . The same backup power supply used for stock market should be applied to nursing homes. Why not?

    Like Jared alluded to, the GOP is circling the wagons and are hanging together on nearly every scandal that comes their way and Trump's way. Will they pay when people go to the polls in November? Only time will tell. We have the denier in chief who was also accused of numerous sexual assaults which would have made any congressperson ashamed enough to resign or get expelled, or at the very least would have been censured or reprimanded.

    I searched for representatives that were sanctioned, censured and the like, and here is a Wikipedia result, and believe it or not, only a couple of congresspersons were reprimanded for sexual misconduct. Unbelievable!

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_St...

    Get this, many of the actions against these representatives were censured or reprimanded for misuse of political campaign violations. Only one (Trafficant) was expelled for it, among other things. And here, nearly all of the president's campaign staff have either been charged with money laundering, lying to the FBI, bribery like (Trump's NDA with Stormy) misuse of campaign funds, etc..

    I'm hoping for a blue wave this November so democrats can begin indictment proceedings against Trump and some republicans that went along with his charades.

    Somebody needs to explain the falsity of wages and the DOW and the stock market that Trump has puffed up.

    MSM is calling this downfall of the GOP a gender gap, I believe there might be a pink wave to get some GOP'ers thrown out of office.
