Update: Bad as this week's events in Congress have been, we'll likely open this program by connecting the dots provided by some of the recent anti-gun rhetoric from Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. While only hints have been dropped so far, the an outline may be emerging on how they think they'll pull off gun confiscation in the not-to-distant future.
By showtime on Friday, Paul Ryan may have been chosen as the new House speaker.
And John Boehner's worst budget betrayal yet may have been given a thumbs-up by Quisling Repubicans in the House.
Why's the budget deal such a betrayal?
Because it assures full funding of Obama's fundamental transformation of America through the end of his second term. It will allow Obama and his agenda to dash forward in his final months, with Congress pretty much muted for the rest of his term.
Meanwhile, Obama sent a navy destroyer into waters where China lays a disputed territorial claim.
Nice timing. Obama 'wags the dog', apparently hoping to distract Americans from the favors Republicans in Congress are doing for him this week.
Heavan knows what other betrayals from within await America and its Constitution in the coming days, weeks or months.
At this rate of betrayal, what's going to be left of the Republican Party by November 2016?
Care to assess or speculate?
Join us at noon (new time) on Friday.
