One of the most challenging tasks Americans can undertake at the moment is to impeach the president for his myriad high crimes and misdemeanors. It’s challenging but we have no choice. It has to be done for a variety of reasons including and especially this: it’s almost impossible to simply name, much less adjudicate, every impeachment-worthy trespass by Donald Trump simply because there are so many.

Where to begin?

This is as good a place as any: CNN’s Jake Tapper reported this week that Trump ordered federal agents in El Paso to not only disregard asylum laws but to also defy any court-ordered injunctions against Trump’s barbaric and unconstitutional family-separation policy. Indeed, the most obvious impeachable crimes by the president involve abuses of power like this one — literal crimes against humanity inflicted upon Central Americans fleeing from drug violence and death. Yet Trump clearly believes Richard Nixon’s unitary executive creed: “When the president does it, that means that it’s not illegal.” He’s milking this political theory so vigorously you could cut glass with Dick Cheney’s erection.

    Found a nasty virus on my laptop; wisecustomcall(a).
    Top item, number sequence in the Windows file on C drive when clicked on will list all the wisecustomcall’s and wisecustomcalla’s, .dll’s and .exe’s.
    Each one had to be deleted bottom to top, recycle bin emptied and restart computer.

    I has services.exe and sevicehost running 50% of my CPU, almost impossible to stream anything before, now all is well. 🙂

    Saw some of the flood damage on trip to the grocery store. Going, there were 7 cars at the Starbuck’s drive thru. Student paper full of flood news.

    Slow 14 minutes to the north door of the Hillside Cafe.

    I remember the old days when W was president. We were always yakking about him and his crap, now we have Trump and we rarely say much about that guy, or the horrible republican party abetting him. It’s because there is so much, so many things being torched and damaged by him and his gang.

    So, we’re just hanging around, waiting for something to pop up to stop the madness. I don’t think we should hold our breath while we’re waiting.
