    Sessions Gone

    No big surprise here.

    So it will be interesting to see how this plays out...
    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy...returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

    -Martin Luther King

    To bad, I always liked Sessions...

    Trump's panicking because the rumors say Mueller's about to indict Donald Trump Jr.

    The now acting-AG authored an opinion piece against Mueller, in case the reasons for replacing Sessions weren't obvious.

    Of course they're obvious. The drover's dog knows that Trump is running scared, with good reason to be scared I suspect.

    So, I'm curious. If Trump and Whitaker fire Rosenstein and Mueller (which seems likely), when the 116th Congress is sworn in, do they have the authority to engage him as a special investigator for the House of Representatives? Has that ever been done before?

    I'm finding myself wondering if Trump isn't setting the stage to fire Mueller so that the Democrats react and start impeachment proceedings. There is essentially no chance of an impeachment succeeding in the Senate, and the spectacle of the impeachment would meet one of Trump's criteria for keeping the media focused on him. It might also rally the right to his defense and make him a sympathetic character to the right.

    Personally, I think it would be a serious mistake for the new house to move forward on articles of impeachment. I hope they are not that stupid. They need to hold the course - move forward with common sense legislation, and focus on 2020.

    Pretty much agree, but often hatred overrides judgment, and some of the Dems have such hatred for Trump that all bets are off that they won't do something really stupid.

    Trump has about 3 months to do what he can to prevent the exposure of whatever he's been hiding that the GOP has let slide. I expect to see a lot of over the top moves from him the next 3 months.

    Jorge's trueorigins paper: "...it is known that other volcanic features match what is usually associated with impact craters including ... shatter cones and crystal deformations"

    Planetary Science Institute: "Shatter cones … are found in only two places on Earth, 1) in nuclear test sites and 2) meteorite impact structures. They are formed as a result of the high pressure, high velocity shock wave ...

    maximum pressures from 45 to 200 times greater than found in volcanic events (2->20 Gpa)

    Eh, given that Trump was largely silent regarding competitive House races (but went all-in on the Senate), I don't think he was exactly blindsided by the result. I'm sure he and his team have been planning for this for months. I don't expect to see any more over the top moves than usual.
