Quips, quotes, queries, qualms and quarrels regarding American politics, politicians, foreign policy and public accountability with particular attention to Drumpfen-putz Administration, the Drumpf Crime Family and the Mueller investigation.
Paul Ryan will not be seeking
re-election to the House. (Hurray!) He's quitting to 'spend more time with his
...er... yeah... right... and I've just been awarded an Oscar for my portrayal
of a Polish mother in 'Sophie's Choice'.
Quitting to 'spend more time with family' is one of the oldest lies in the book
- right after 'the check is in the mail' and 'I won't come in your mouth'. It's
the standard weasel-phrase for politicians who have been disgraced by scandal.
Ryan is just jumping the gun a bit
by mouthing the old saw before his scandal is revealed publicly. He's not
quitting to 'spend time with his family' - not unless his wife or one of his
kids is a 'white-shoe' attorney specializing in criminal cases. No, Paulie will be spending time working on
his legal defense to avoid prosecution in the conspiracy to obstruct justice
(amongst other charges) which the Mueller investigation has uncovered.
What will the actual charges against Lyin'
Ryan be? Good question. That, dear reader, is, as President Drumpfen-putz so
deftly puts it, a 'wait and see' issue. Indications from a number of sources
are that the GOP received millions from foreign nationals to fund various
political campaigns. Some of the funds, evidently, were laundered through the
NRA. With Mueller and team playing everything so tight to their vest, we have
to await indictments and subpoenas to know more.

Report by Bill Palmer for loads of little scoops the MSM don't pick up until

Paulie is running scared - that's
why he's not running for re-election.
(Ironic, ain't it?)
His skinny arse is in the wringer. All that's required is for Mueller to start
cranking the rollers and Ryan will start to squeal and none of the Koch Brother's
dirty money is going to save him. One thought is that Ryan's quitting helps set
the stage for the Dem retaking of the House and thence the filing of
impeachment against the Drumpfen-furter and his cohort of de-constructionists.
Any bets on his flipping against
anybody and everybody within reach to save his putrid behind from the Graybar
