CNN cites a point of concern!


Fred Kaplan explains the nukes: We don't have the transcript yet, though CNN will provide one.

That said, we just heard an intriguing report from Jim Acosta. 

Once again, Acosta reported that Vice President Pence hasn't abandoned the possibility of using the 25th Amendment to remove the commander-in-chief from office. 

In our view, it's amazing to see Pence letting such reports go uncorrected and unchallenged. Acosta then reported this:

Pence's staff say they're reluctant to move in that direction out of concern that such action might inspire Trump to do something destructive. Speaking of which, we'll link you to Fred Kaplan's report about those nuclear weapons.

We hadn't yet seen Kaplan's report when we did our own post on Saturday. Over at Slate, Kaplan had already delivered the bad news. To give you the gist of what he said, the headlines read like this:

Trump Still Has the Power to Blow Up the World
And as long as he’s in office, there’s not much anyone can do about that.

As we'd pretty much thought, there is no "fail-safe" in place to restrain this disordered man. Or at least, so says Kaplan.

Woody Guthrie said it best. "So long, it's been good to know ya," the Dust Bowl survivor cried.

It's a lovely performance, with clever, wry lyrics. What else are you doing today?


  1. Trump isn't going to blow up the world with himself in it. That is against his self-interest. Actually, he cannot aim a nuke anywhere close to one of his hotels.

    Pence is remaining a deterrent -- that's why he isn't saying anything one way or the other. What is he deterring? Not nuke activity. He is deterring anything that might cause people to think Trump is crazier than usual -- so, all of the other small revenge-oriented stuff that Trump might contemplate doing.

  4. ‘As we'd pretty much thought, there is no "fail-safe" in place to restrain this disordered man.’

    25th amendment? Conviction and removal after impeachment the first time? Preventing Trump from becoming the GOP nominee?

    Oops. All of those required Republicans to take some responsibility and put country over party.

  5. "As we'd pretty much thought, there is no "fail-safe" in place to restrain this disordered man"

    OMG! We are shaking in our boots, dear Bob.

    You should give us a horrible, horrible news like this gradually, dear Bob, g-r-a-d-u-a-l-l-y. Not all of a sudden, like you did.

    But not all is lost, dear Bob: in just a few days the Power to Blow Up the World will be in the perfectly safe hands of one Rapist-Mafioso, who is also (thank God!) a vegetable.

  6. Kaplan notes that it is "extremely unlikely" that Trump would order a launch. Anything is possible, and Trump has gone off the deep end (he seems to have been there right along) - but I for one am not going to lose sleep over it.

  7. Not sure what "transcript" you're talking about. I was not on CNN talking about nukes...Fred Kaplan

  8. These are Trump's people, his supporters:

    "So far, at least 90 people have been arrested on charges ranging from misdemeanor curfew violations to felonies related to assaults on police officers, possessing illegal weapons and making death threats against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

    Among them was Lonnie Leroy Coffman, 70, an Alabama grandfather who drove to Washington to attend Trump’s “Save America Rally” in a red GMC Sierra pickup packed with an M4 assault rifle, multiple loaded magazines, three handguns and 11 Mason jars filled with homemade napalm, according to court filings. He was arrested carrying a 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun and a .22-caliber derringer pistol in his pockets.

    His grandson, Brandon Coffman, told the AP on Friday his grandfather was a Republican who had expressed admiration for Trump at holiday gatherings. He said he had no idea why Coffman would show up in the nation’s capital armed for civil war.

    Also facing federal charges is Cleveland Grover Meredith Jr., a Georgia man who in the wake of the election had protested outside the home of Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, whom Trump had publicly blamed for his loss in the state. Meredith drove to Washington last week for the “Save America” rally but arrived late because of a problem with the lights on his trailer, according to court filings that include expletive-laden texts.

    “Headed to DC with a (s—-) ton of 5.56 armor-piercing ammo,” he texted friends and relatives on Jan. 6, adding a purple devil emoji, according to court filings. The following day, he texted to the group: “Thinking about heading over to Pelosi (C——’s) speech and putting a bullet in her noggin on Live TV.” He once again added a purple devil emoji, and wrote he might hit her with his truck instead. “I’m gonna run that (C—-) Pelosi over while she chews on her gums. … Dead (B——) Walking. I predict that within 12 days, many in our country will die.”

    A participant in the text exchange provided screenshots to the FBI, who tracked Meredith to a Holiday Inn a short walk from the Capitol. They found a compact Tavor X95 assault rifle, a 9mm Glock 19 handgun and about 100 rounds of ammunition, according to court filings. The agents also seized a stash of THC edibles and a vial of injectable testosterone.

    Meredith is charged with transmitting a threat, as well as felony counts for possession of firearms and ammunition.

    Michael Thomas Curzio was arrested in relation to the riots less than two years after he was released from a Florida prison in 2019. He had served eight years for attempted murder."

    The violence is not over. There are plans now for terrorist attacks on 1/17 and other days close to the Inauguration. The continued participation in the lie about Biden's election is continuing to jeopardize the lives of law enforcement, elected officials, and bystanders.

    This is serious to Trump's people and it should be serious to us too. That's why Trump must be impeached, ASAP.
