Beau of the Fifth column

Beau says that people don't get more conservative as they get older, and that this is an illusion. They just get stuck in the time period or environment they were raised in and fail to personally change, progress, or evolve. So as they get older, they just appear to be stuck in a more conservative age. It's merely a case of arrested development.

@coluber2001,
My 91yr old Lutheran Rock Ribbed Ohio Republican Banker of a dad is now about as socialist as it gets. But say 'socialist' at him, and he spits on the ground.

I am 86...and most of my wish list falls to the left of people like Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar. Far to the left.

American conservatism is for idiots.

Trump Conduit for Russian Money is Convicted on Six Felony Counts -- November 17, 2022

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/11/17/2136939/-Trump-Conduit-for-Russian-Money-is-Convicted-on-Six-Felony-Counts-November-17-2022

Jesse Benton convicted.

Washington Post has the story behind pay wall. CBS, NBC, ABC avoid it. Same for NY Times, at least so far. Donald Trump taking illegal money from a Russian national and his courier getting convicted for six felonies for it is way too hot for them.

The Wiki entry is straightforward:

On September 20, 2021, the United States Department of Justice announced that Benton (along with Doug Wead) has been indicted. Benton and Wead are both charged with one count of conspiracy to solicit and cause an illegal campaign contribution by a foreign national, effect a conduit contribution, and cause false records to be filed with the FEC, one count of contribution by a foreign national, one count of contribution in the name of another and three counts of making false entries in an official record, all related to contributions he had made to the Trump campaign on behalf of a Russian national. Benton was convicted of all 6 counts on November 17, 2022.

The indictment press release is also interesting:

Political Operatives Indicted for Alleged Scheme Involving Illegal Campaign Contribution to 2016 Presidential Campaign

Trump pardoned Benton for a different campaign felony. Roughly speaking, that’s what Benton does. He fancies himself a fixer.

We’ll have to see what else comes out in the wash.

Virtually everybody in Washington, D.C., has reason to have mixed feelings about the 2022 midterm-election outcomes given the better-than-expected Democratic performance alongside the death of the Democratic trifecta. But for West Virginia Democratic senator Joe Manchin, the glass probably seems half-empty rather than half-full. Yes, with Democrats hanging on to the Senate, he gets to keep his chairmanship of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, which is money back home. And he won’t be subject to punishment from a vengeful Senate Republican majority that blames him for brokering the Inflation Reduction Act instead of just killing off the entire Biden agenda. But the loss of the Democratic House cuts off the flow of legislation that required Democratic unanimity in the Senate, which gave enormous power to Manchin (and, to a lesser extent, Kyrsten Sinema).

In other words, Manchin is no longer the “King of America.” There won’t be any filibuster-skirting budget-reconciliation bills in the 118th Congress; if Speaker-to-be Kevin McCarthy even thought about one, he’d be defenestrated instantly. So the very source of Manchin’s extraordinary influence has been dammed up. There’s no longer much he can do for Chuck Schumer, or much Schumer can offer in return, to continue the West Virginian’s highly transactional relationship with the Democratic Party. And that, in turn, means he can’t tell the people he represents that they need him in Washington to shake down Democrats to their benefit.

Holy ****! There may be another reason Garland appointed a Special Counsel.
Garland told us he appointed a SC because Trump announced he is running for president. I have no reason to doubt this.

However, Garland knows the Republicans took back the House. Garland knows there will now be Non-stop fake hearings and he will be a big target of these fake hearings. These hearings will be led by traitor Jim Jordan who was a part of J6. He will be interrogating Garland about the J6 investigation. You can't make this **** up.

Garland knows the Republicans are going to hound him. They will attempt to disrupt him, make him look corrupt. They are going to keep Garland busy defending the investigations.

By appointing a SC, it will assure the investigations are not disrupted. It will also give Garland cover as he is being interrogated by the very traitors he is investigating.

Think about it.

@Builder,
Yes, that actually did make my head swim a little bit. I just cannot fathom why Mitch McConnell voted to acquit then get up on the Floor and make such a passionate speech on how Trump is guilty.

It goes to show how morally bankrupt Republicans are.

I think it's way beyond R and D or blue and red, and has been for some decades. The melting pot that is/was the US of A is being manipulated by outside forces, and democratic process went out the window a long while ago.
