    wwjd -- I agree. You are spot on. When you wallow in the mud with Trump, he is a much better mud wrestler than any of us. He wins. He is a skilled con artist who revels in the shit throwing game because he has been doing it all his life. He controls the messaging...he controls his base...he controls the Republican Party. He is ruthless. Everyone and everything is a bargaining chip...no empathy...no emotions...a pathological liar.

    The opinion is divided on the Schiff memo. Some say Dems are playing Trump's game by pushing for its release as Nunes will just come up with another one, and the cycle continues with Trump the decider on each memo. Nunes is working for Trump playing Trump's game. While it might "feel good" to put Nunes and Trump in their place, I'm not sure we can win that game in the long run.

    Schmidt, like I said in another thread Trump grew up in an KKK household and did not want to learn in school, instead he learned how the "mob" works with all the tricks to come out from under "the law". Thus you can't fight him unless you have lived on the "street" as well and know their background and tactics.

    About Schiff; I think he's very qualified for the job, but his problem is that he's too decent to be able to fight Trump's mafia, in which he does not fit. Right now the Dem's have no clue on how to fight the "loyalty" game which Trump introduced. Like I said Trump is a street "bully" who want it his way , or else. Trump looks at "governing" the same way as "street" gangs who fight the other "gangs" (Democrats) to gain territory. That is the reason he does not wants to expand his base and only supports his "gang" to gain power; the other "gang" has to be eradicated.

    I like the gang analogy. And agree with the idea that to defeat them, it requires understanding their strengths and weaknesses.

    I would disagree that to beat trump, Democrats to become more like trump. Democrats will never beat trump by trying to adopt his methods. Nor will the Democratic party be successful by becoming militant, endorsing hardcore Left Wing wackos who think and act like trump, and are willing to go as low as trump, and lower. Left Wing Wackos just want to save trees, not cut them down for profit, and like trump, how Left Wing wackos succeed is irrelevant to them; use a gun, tell a lie, cheat, do whatever it takes; the means always justify a winning outcome, save the trees or save the dreamers.

    Left Wing Wackos = Right Wing Wackos; they just have opposite polarities in there political views. They would love to jail their Right wing political opponents as soon as they take power because in their mind, trump is a political criminal, thus be imprisoned indefinitely.
