The Unraveling -- Donald Trump
My husband and I were walking today and he mentioned he saw one of our neighbors jogging the other day. The guy is in his 70s and my husband said he was wearing christmas pajama bottoms (alvin and the chipmunks with christmas trees on them). So my husband asked me why that would happen. I told him, well, the guy is in his 70s. He has gotten to the point he just doesn't care about what people think anymore and he was comfortable. I reminded him of when my father was in his 80s and was wearing very strange clothes that were also very worn. Part of it was dementia and part of it was just not worrying about what people thought anymore. (Perhaps we can relate this to the Orange Nightmare too right!)
I then made sure my husband knew he was never allowed to do this, even when we are in our 70s. But we sure don't care as much about what people think as we did when we were young LOL.
Mas1581: love that story - fell off my chair on that one!
I have a pair of Alvin and the chipmunk xmas PJ pants. Maybe they're the same ones.....and yes, I've worn them out to the store before.
From The Guardian today :"Trump falsely declares himself 'the chief law enforcement officer'
ALL I CAN SAY .. IS BRING ON THE IDES OF MARCH - THIS ORANGE FREAK AND FRIENDS ARE OUT OF CONTROL!!!!
That last sentence. I started laughing like crazy!
Oddly, I hadn't been reading much of any news about Barr 10-11 days ago when Barr popped up on my inner screen. It was unusual for a public figure to pop up in my mind like that. He was agitated. I threw a card right before my class on the 10th and saw he was panicking, defending himself. Grasping for any way to rationalize his behavior. So I read him near the end of my class on Monday night in front of those still there and saw he was a mess of defensive stammering.
Now I feel the GOP inner circle is circling their wagons around him and telling him to hang on and he will weather this storm and morph into a big man. And a rich man. He wants to be respected and the GOP cult leaders are telling him that he is in the right and they need him and he is setting new precedents and will become a great leader in this New World Order that is Trump.
They are talking to him like supporters pump up a prize fighter in the ring.
He doesn't know what is right or wrong but he's getting huge pressure to quit and to stay. I can't be sure what he will do because he feels so confused right now. He can't sleep, he is a mess. They are telling him to double down and weather the storm. That if he resigns now he will be resigning in disgrace and they are going to help him become respected again. Just wait, we will have the whole world at our feet and you will be the A.G.!
Bottom line. I have to see what the news is in the morning. Because right now there is a tug of war of energies.
@jeannemayell do you see the Democrats impeaching him? 🤞
News just out that Barr told people close to Trump both inside and outside of the WH that he is considering resigning and blaming it on Trump's tweets. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-raises-possibility-of-suing-those-involved-in-prosecuting-roger-stone/2020/02/18/238279fc-5250-11ea-9e47-59804be1dcfb_story.html
Of course, Trump'a tweets did not cause Barr to do Trump's bidding. The tweets just gave it away that Barr was doing Trump's bidding.
When Barr was AG under George HW Bush, he orchestrated that pardon of many of the Iran-Contra co-conspirators, but he did if after Bush had lost the election. The pardons occurred before Clinton was inaugurated. Then Barr left the DOJ and while he did get blow-back for his role, it died down and he went on to continue his career. He was also much younger then. Times are different now, with cable and social media. And he's not 40-something anymore.
The right wing believes they have within reach complete control of everything, and can't believe their luck. But to complete their takeover, EVERYONE needs to hang tough and stick to the script. Can Barr do that? I think so, but I hope not.
Tug of war of energies, no doubt.
I see Barr waking up a lot at night (not unlike Lindsey), getting up and down from bed. He's wearing a dark blue monogrammed robe with white piping. Maybe his bladder is irritating him (oh, or his prostate!).
I'm also seeing Barr conferring with an elderly priest. The priest feels important, so maybe he's a bishop or possibly a cardinal? (He's just wearing an ordinary black suit in my vision.) The priest is a good bit taller than Barr and thinner, with short white hair—not much of it left. He seems to have a lot of personal dynamism. They're meeting in some kind of small office or ante chamber, so not a confessional booth, unfortunately. But it does feel private, almost like counseling or some kind of advisement. I see the priest crossing his legs and calmly clasping the fingers of both hands together over his knees when Barr enters. Barr's energy feels almost like a boy's in this setting, but he's the same man we see today.
To the question of whether he'll continue on as AG, resign, or find himself disbarred or impeached, etc., when I ask that question, I only see one thing:
It looks like a long narrow underground corridor. It has plain white tile flooring and acoustical tile ceilings, so wherever this is, it's bureaucratic and decidedly unfancy. The hallway stretches a long way into the distance, farther underground. (Feels like what I imagine the sub-basement of the Harry S. Truman Building or even the Pentagon might be like—something out of a movie with a serial killer or worse, Nicolas Cage.)
At first I see Barr standing in the middle of this corridor close to the front, where it's more brightly lit (representing center stage?). Then, very quickly, he turns around and walks away down that eternal hallway. His head is completely bowed as he walks, similar to the way I see him shuffling in his house in the middle of the night. I get the impression he doesn't want to be seen anymore.
My interpretation of this is that he'll eventually go voluntarily. But I don't think he actually cares, not on a personal level, what people think—or the media has to say—about his actions, unless that attention has the power to hinder his choices, which he knows it can. He believes absolutely that he's on the side of right, and he's ruthless to defend that ideology. So, the only reason I think that he would choose to leave is if doing so would either protect his own long term power or somehow shield the power behind him.
(@vestralux) Your post had me laughing out loud and that's a relief to laugh about this. I see Fred Flintstone (thanks to @JourneyWithMe2) in a navy monogrammed robe getting up to pee at night. You see things in a frankly warped dream scape with uncanny detail that just makes me start laughing.
Fred pacing back and forth, trying to come up with a believable reason to get the hell out of this mess: I need to resign because Trump keeps tweeting and exposing the dirty deeds I do for him. He won't let me do my henchman, fixer job masquerading as Attorney General. Why can't he be more like Bush senior?
Sister, if we haven't all found ourselves in the uncanny valley of somebody's warped dreamscape right about now, then I don't even know what! Ha
I get the Fred Flintstone comparison, but I also see that cartoon hound dog, Droopy. Only if Droopy had been a radical ideological mega-villain on the down low.
After I submitted that last post I was thinking about the prostate hit. Barr shuffling off down a long white-tiled basement corridor could represent a hospital stay. Thoughts?
P.S. When I first picked up "prostate" I didn't know if that would affect the bladder. Sure enough, frequent urination is a symptom. Another one can be "painful ejaculation." Now, I don't wish to make light of men's health (truly)—and to all men here, I'm grateful for you (and remember to get your prostates checked). But c'mon. We're talking about The Breaker of Democracy here. Does he have any other kind?
I woke up on Monday morning of this week hearing Mr. yabba dabba doo (Barr) would resign. (made me very happy). I just get a strong feeling that once that happens 🙏 that the Orange nightmare would start to be on his downward slide that finally removes him in the Spring/Summer.
I heard The Orange One say he is the head of the police Nationally, I practically laughed myself silly. He is losing it even more. I think something really bad will come out soon and I think Nancy Pelosi already knows what it is but is not yet able to prove whatever it is.
I just thought if Barr resigns, or a new AG is picked on the 15th(Ides of March), that matches with the predictions because the new AG could be Trump's Brutus
MAS, please. No one wants to think about Trump's Brutus.

🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣
LMAO, if you think he's annoying as a human, try watching him in Vampire's Kiss. That movie makes you want to drive a stake through your own heart.
I'm sorry, but I like Nicholas Cage. True, he does make some sorry movies, but when the movie is good so is he.
