Re: The Report is Out Trump should do something really classy like declare tomorrow a national holiday and pardon everyone that has been affected, and also promise to pardon all the Democrats that will inevitably go to prison when this goes the other way. Declare it a day of new beginnings!

Re: The Report is Out So - the Muelly Report is out, and the Dogs of Ignorance are braying for more Russia-Trump action already.
Apparently Cenk - as the strongest example I have seen so far - has based his view on the strong hint that its all good news for the President, and bad news for all the Dems who have been fantasizing about the Trump-Russia fantasy for well over two years now.
Reasonable of him. From Left to Right, pundits and commentators mostly agree with that.
This is a mental shock that those of us who have been making fun of the PC-ites cannot Truly understand. It may be useful to consider another such mental shock in American history.
We had a strong Commie support membership in America after the USSR got going. It built for years, and due to our free speech and free association laws, the Commie Party in the US - abbreviated usually as the CPUSA - got going.
Like in all countries, the Soviets supplied some funds and tried to control it. History shows that the control was pretty good, and was largely based like many religions on parents indoctrinating their kids.
Also like many religions, there was lots of associating the families in social events with other true believers. And lots of shared ideological book larnin' and structured classwork as well.
A shock to the ideological framework of all this took place when Stalin flipped the switch and became an ally and good freind of Hitler before WW II. For years before that, Hitlers' NAZI street thugs had been street-fighting with German Commie Party thugs.
Commie newspaper articles, recorded and in-person speeches, holding lots of heated vitriol condemning Hitler and his NAZI's were many, long and fierce for those years. Many CPUSA members left "the cause" because of that sudden flip.
Really strong "true believers" stuck with it. One famous one was one the "Hollywood 10," the screenwriter of the original "Spartacus," Dalton Trumbo. Far lefty Hollywoodites of today remember him fondly and even made a movie about him that made him out as a hero:
We can recal Dalton and his upbringing which held so well. Along with others that supported him while he kept working "covertly." So it's a little easier to believe we are really seeing this.
It's not an act they are putting on when we behold Cenk, Rachel Maddow and others who act like they really believe their delusion. We can at least see that this is not the first time such a powerful delusion has survived a hard, dramatic confrontation with reality.
Cenk, Rachel and their fellow true believers are struggling to hold onto a mental world where the '16 election cannot have happened anything like legitimately.
Impossible! Because in their subjective "Matrix," President Trump is the caricature they describe him as regularly. He and all around him do many of the horrible things that Rachel, Cenk and their guests suggest that they have been doing. And that being so - they simply must have left a trail of evidence.
Members of the huge media train that followed that lead for over two years now are taking stock. Some are at least pausing before jumping back on-board. Not all are "jacked into the same Matrix" as Cenk and Rachel are.
As this unfolds, it seems as though their fantasy must morphs more "out of synch" with reality.
And sure enough! Muelly is already being called a Russian asset now by some!
Re: The Report is Out Doc, I too, have read that the Stormtroopers and the Red Scarves (commies) set up riots to destabilize, the Weimar Republic, after the Great Depression began, and the Govt went wobbly, and Hindenburg's health was bad, etc...

Re: The Report is Out Ah, Deliverance! The first, most disturbing indeed, introduction to men raping other men to many millions of still innocent Yanks.
Da da de de de de de de, indeed!
And like those rising waters in that inbred valley, the rising water of rumors of Muellys' Report is disturbing the peculiar inhabitants of a gloomy valley known as "the American Left."
The furthest Left of todays Lefties were pushed out of mainstream Dem life a short while ago.
Hillary and most of the Dem Allied media ended up pushing not many Proggies when they screwed Bernie and his supporters. But not just those who style themselves as Progressives - lots of other non-Corporate lefties felt estranged by that action.
When the same media started this "Trump-Russia" nonsense, they and their fellow far lefties distrusted it. Some might have recalled from the election, when anti-Bernie messages would appear on all the channels except Fox as they flipped around. And then be headlines in newspapers!
Seeing the same thing happening with Trump-Russia - many held back. As it became more unhinged, many of them stayed away from belief in it. Now it has falls apart, some outreach to their formerly "entranced" fellow lefties is taking place.
This is a long vid from Democracy Now!, an amazingly uber-lefty organization, very big on Public Radio and TV out west:
The Grey Haired Lady is named Amy Goodman. She is hosting as an ally a long time libbo activist and reporter. She and her ally- "Trump-Russia conspiracy" lefty reporter Glen Greenwald - will try to bring a third fellow to his senses.
This guy is a rabidly true believer in the conspiracy. The other two - mostly Glen - mostly turn the true believer away from the Trump-Russia Collusion nonsense at least to "OK, an unwilling dupe of Russia" by the end.
CNN has several hosts who have acknowledged that "it's over" as well. But of course, some die-hards are like the guy on top in that disturbing meme.
They know - they KNOW, DAM* IT - that given enough time, they can "make this pig squeal."
