Thanks for such an awesome post.
It boggles my mind how so called Christians, can overlook tenant after tenant of their religion to justify their support. These aren’t really grey areas that can be debated.
Here is one thing I can tell you for certain. I live in a pretty red area, and recently traveled with a large group of right wing movers and shakers. The one name I didn’t hear one time was trump. There were a lot of what I’ll call left leaning independents in Ohio that voted for trump, they are now lost to him. You would have thought the blue wave would have been a clue. But they are doubling down. It’s not a party it’s a cult.
You hit on one of the reason I’m not pleasant to them (the board rwnj’s). They aren’t Honest, I’ve tested them time and time again, they fail the honesty exam. They are mostly trolls reinforcing the stupid upon their fellow wallnuts.
I secretly held out hope that bluster was just that, and once he took over the “genius” would come out. The deal maker, the guy that would throw his arm around Schumer in a press conference and say look at a the deal we made, I’m the greatest. Instead, (if his own departed best and brightest can be believed) we have a guy that can’t even grasp the big picture if he wanted to. He’s freaking illiterate.
I hate to say it, but suddenly Romney is looking like a sane choice for 2020.
The real damage trump is doing won’t be revealed for a while. It’s a lagging indicator.

Acclaimed for his scholarly works on Stalinism in general and the Romanian communist regime in particular, as well as for exploring the impact of nationalism, national communism and neo-Stalinism in the Soviet Union and countries of the Eastern Bloc, Tismăneanu writes from the critical perspective of a civil society supporter. His other influential texts deal with diverse topics such as Cold War history, Kremlinology and the Holocaust. Having moved from a loose Marxist vision, shaped under the influence of neo-Marxist and Western Marxist scholarship, he became a noted proponent of classical liberalism and liberal democracy. This perspective is outlined in both his scientific contributions and volumes dealing with Romania's post-1989 history, the latter of which include collections of essays and several published interviews with literary critic Mircea Mihăieș. Vladimir Tismăneanu completed his award-winning synthesis on Romanian communism, titled Stalinism for All Seasons, in 2003. Tismăneanu's background and work came under intense scrutiny after his 2006 appointment by Romanian President Traian Băsescu as head of the Presidential Commission for the Study of the Communist Dictatorship in Romania
Professor Riasanovsky’s book “A History of Russia,” scanning its history from its ninth-century Slavic roots to the Soviet era, has been in print continuously since it was published in 1963. (The last two editions, the seventh and eighth, were co-authored by Mr. Steinberg.) John Challice, vice president and publisher of higher education texts at Oxford University Press, the book’s publisher, said it was “by a wide margin the top-selling book in Russian history in the U.S., and has been for decades.” Continue reading the main story Richard Pipes, a professor emeritus of Russian history at Harvard, said “A History of Russia” filled an academic void during a time of surging need. Before it was published, textbooks on Russian history were considered uneven, he said, because “until World War II, Americans had very little contact or interest in Russia.”
