Why Did Michael Cohen Plead Guilty to Campaign Finance Crimes That Aren't Campaign Finance Crimes?
"Assuming that Cohen's attorneys are not unaware of these facts, why would they allow Cohen to plead? Cohen probably took the plea bargain because he was threatened with a long prison sentence and financial impoverishment on the many financial and tax charges unrelated to any dealings with President Trump. On Wednesday, Cohen was sentenced to three years, which was a pittance compared to the likely threatened decades of imprisonment."
Cohen realized it was better to plead guilty to non-crimes and take his three-year penalty than to fight the many charges of real crimes he committed which were likely to result in a decade or more of imprisonment.
The Case For Making The GOP A Working-Class Party
Honestly, this is a 20th-century solution; it will work for a while. What is needed is to make the Republican Party the party of the independent contractor, the party of the new socio-economic model, while including the slowly dying working class from the old socio-economic model. Let the Democrats keep the billionaires, they are and will increasingly be seen as the new Robber Barons.
This requires strength of character which the Republicans in Congress have shown to be completely lacking. Although I do admit now that McCain is dead, Lindsey Graham has grown a pair, odd, that!
Seriously, Just Order the Pentagon to Build the Wall
"The estimated price tag on President Trump’s “big, beautiful” southern border wall is $25 billion—a paltry sum compared with the ways government otherwise fritters away taxpayers’ dollars. Yet a government shutdown looms—and Democrats can’t have that.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) paid a visit to the White House on Tuesday to make a deal with the president to pass a continuing budget resolution that would keep the government running through March. Trump said he would be more than happy to deal—as long as Congress gives him his wall.
Democrats can’t have that, either.
Pelosi, who will almost certainly be the new speaker of the House when the new Congress convenes in January, told reporters on Thursday that Trump won’t get his wall and vowed to keep the government “closed forever” if that’s what it takes.
For his part, Trump has insisted that if negotiations with Congress fail, he will simply direct the Pentagon to build the wall."
Better yet, order the US DOD to build the wall and shut down the government permanently. But the only way to do this would be to have a Republican Party in Congress with big brass ones, something which does not exist.

Incentivizing poor people to come and make a parlous desert crossing is criminal. Hundreds have died, hundreds more will die because these empathetic fools incentivize them to make a deadly journey. They should be charged with creating an attractive nuisance resulting in the death.

Once the land is redistributed, the new "farmers" will not be able to feed the people, and the economy will tank leaving the government without the money necessary to buy the necessary food, which will inevitably lead to Venezuela in Southern Africa. The people of South Africa do not deserve this, but they have elected these people, and you get the government you deserve not the government you want.
When the starvation is in full swing, and your children are dying, look at yourselves South Africans, you are to blame.
