April 2021, Trump allegedly offered to let the author of a book about him see the binder, saying “I would let you look at them if you wanted…. It’s a treasure trove…it would be sort of a cool book for you to look at.”

From CNN, reported by Heather Cox Richardson on her letter of December 15, 2023.

So the 10" binder of Russian Intel was "a cool book" for Trump to show off to his buddies. Ask Meadows about it under oath then immediately charge him if he lies again

This is no longer funny, friends. This is Treason.

No doubt. This is way too serious to ignore and it stinks as bad as the old cheese and vinegar that the deranged perpetrator was reported yesterday to reek of. As usual, the media is doing a very shitty job of not getting the insane mango madman's horrific message out there.

I have been saying the word Treason all along. The fact that he seems to have sold the Saudi's information for cash for his daughter's family smacks of treason along with everything he has done. He is a con man to rival Bernie Madoff. Look at all of the money he is getting from people with his schtick! I am sure that after Hitler, people like Madoff are Trump's idols. He is selling pieces of his supposed suit, he is bragging on being a dictator in a country whose constitution says we are not supposed to have a dictator, not even for a day. I have been wondering in my head what would happen if there was a war between Trump's people, and the USA, since he is acting like he wants to be an occupying dictator to our nation. I imagine Trump's militia is armed up the wazoo, but if there is going to be a president who is containing the rioting hordes with the military, I hope it is Biden and not Trump.

Ditto here. I don’t care if he thinks he’s a king, he needs to arrested and kept on house arrest until this new twist to his malevolent and traitorous behavior can be proven once and for all, and then his fat a$$ kicked into a penitentiary, not a jail.

Yes. Let’s pin down exactly what it was that Meadows was running around doing in those last few hours of frump being in office. He was sweating like a farm animal literally running to get his hands on some document. If meadows gets nailed for this l, his life as he knows it is likely over. Watch. He’ll take a hit because he was actually running around to get that doc. And frump could get away with insisting that he never gave Meadows that directive.

My worry is how many copies did this treasonous bastard Meadows make of this document? I would bet Pukin and any other high bidder has a copy. We are soooo fucked if Der fuhrer trump gets elected.

To my way of thinking, Bannon and S. Miller are far worse than Donnie Diaperstain. Don though is their front man who gets out and raises the money for their nefarious purposes. I can totally see tfg getting a re up, pardoning any and all offenses concerning all the violent lawbreakers around 1/6 and then all Hell breaking loose everywhere. This sort of scenario was what kept me awake many nights he was in office and he’s worse now, if that’s possible.

It IS possible and in fact, probable. I assume he would call the Insurrection Act if things got out of control (or even if they didn't), then we have troops in the streets. The only *new* thing Trump is smart about now is NOT to put "adults" in his administration -- they'll all be lackeys, kiss-asses, and servants to his "plan" for America.

Bannon is absolutely the worst: https://www.mediamatters.org/steve-bannon/steve-bannon-and-kash-patel-tout-trumps-second-term-retribution-plan-just-not-rhetoric

They were here all along, but Trump gave them permission to be as vocal as possible. Marlene, both of my parents who lived through World War II half passed. They would be in their mid to late 90s by now, and they would be horrified. My Jewish friends, most of them still on the East Coast where I grew up, are talking about leaving the country. I still have faith that Trump can’t win this next election, but due to the electoral college, nothing is certain.

You made me think about his balls on the bookshelf, like book ends - to keep the binder and the two volumes of Mein Kampf from falling over. Except his balls are as tiny as his hands, so I suspect they wouldn't hold anything in place.

I like the idea of the binder falling over & squishing those little balls. Bookends need to sturdier than thumps balls. Even his spine wouldn’t be enough to hold up a binder.

I'd guess Bedminster, myself.

Using a coffin buried in an overgrown plot in an obscure corner of a golf course to hide all the "smaller" classified docs the former fucking asshole liked to wave in the face of anyone he wanted to impress never made much sense to me -- it's not all that convenient to have the pool boy run up to Jersey and dig up a couple up at a moment's notice to show off to some rando hot blonde or Russian spy (not that those two things are mutually exclusive).

Besides, if they were intended for Putin, why would ttfg send him the whole binder, when he could keep Putin on the hook indefinitely by doling them out one salacious bit at a time? How else would you keep a monomaniacal dictator on the hook?

On the other hand, if he got wind that the binder was becoming dangerous to hold onto personally, *that's* exactly the kind of thing I'd expect him to literally bury.

Hi Jeff, thank you for another mind numbing experience into the fucked up world of Earth II, Nazis, Reich wing politics, lies, scapegoating and just plain dumb shit that passes for intelligence. As a former resident of the Seattle area, as a member of 3 synagogues in the Seattle, I received mail from all 3 yesterday morning. We were notified that due to credible threats... bomb threats... services would be cancelled... all Seattle area synagogues received the same warning from law enforcement... This is real and happening now.... As Nick Fuentes said the other day....when we take power we I’ll begin to execute all non Christian, beginning with Jews. Always we are the canary in the coal mine... “ The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress” Frederick Douglas.

Expand full comment

This is sick. Someone in Missoula told me that Nazis were marching down the main avenues a couple of weeks ago, and police officers contacted all the local rabbis to tell them to warn people of the threat and to perhaps cancel services. And Missoula and Seattle are liberal, blue cities. But that’s probably why they are being targeted. MAGA people are a lost cause; but these people who are on the fence, or complaining about certain things they don’t like about Biden so they won’t support him, had better wake the fuck up and do the right thing lest they wind up in detention camps themselves.

Every election season for about 15 years the idea that I might need to buy some fire arms comes to mind. My entire family knew how to shoot, went hunting and/ or owned guns. I got rid of mine years ago when I went back to college and lived with roommates. It is not like I feel guns solve any problems but we are living through some very weird and perilous times. And like others have stated here, you are not really paranoid if they are out to get you!

Expand full comment

My uncle taught me to shoot when I was 7yo (a couple of years before he ended up in Vietnam as a Navy Seal.) When my kids were young, he taught both of them to shoot, too.

Guns are just tools -- lethal ones, of course, but chain saws can be, too. My husband and I own two handguns; one is a target pistol and the other is a heavier-duty handgun that's more effective against javelinas, giant murder pigs that roam the high desert in SW TX, where we had a little property and considered retiring at one point. The guns live in a small safe, hidden away but accessible -- think my grown daughter may know where, but no one else would.

We still believe strongly that killing people is fundamentally wrong, but if some ignorant fuckface threatened our family, I don't imagine either of us would hesitate to do what we must to protect them... I REALLY hope it won't come to that, but it's looking less and less likely that the US is going to escape this kind of violence this time.

Just learned this morning about “swatting”. It’s a term used to define the false high threat claims, including the need for SWAT teams, that tie up all resources for an area.

Someone calls in a “I know of a credible bomb threat aimed at xx.” authorities can’t ignore a credible threat. So the whole system is triggered and responds. Tying up resources, causing mayhem in the community, and simply terrorizing individuals who belong to whoever is associated to the target.

Feels like we’re shoulder to shoulder with manimals.

As for Rs covering for him, it would be far better if news outlets would stop reporting their "He's just joking. It's Trump being Trump." BS as the gospel truth.

He TOLD them way back in like 2017, that he doesn't joke. He occasionally says something humorous, but he doesn't joke. When he says something, he's dead serious about it. And it's way past time they stopped taking him as a joke, which is how they've been treating him since 2015. Like a long running, Har-dee-har-har, what a card! joke. He's not a joke, he's a deadly earnest threat to our nation. He'll sell us down a river for a "Ain't you the cool dude!" compliment, because he's desperate for attention, and affirmation.
