Fwd: Four for the price of three

---------- Forwarded
From: John H

It is so difficult these days to keep up with the tide of events impacting all of our lives that it's hard to know which way to turn.  In that spirit, attached are four articles of relevance in three attachments.  They are all, in one way or another, relative to the current political nausea sweeping the nation and the globe.  In some stations the fall of Trump is imminent; in others it is unlikely and undesirable.  I find myself in the middle on this – I believe it will happen but that the outcome will be undesirable in that we will be left with Pence, who, whatever one may think of Trump, is even more adept at ushering in irrational and terribly dangerous policy prescriptions floating through the Republican hierarchy.  Time will tell, but neither option appears to be particularly desirable.  The only beneficial aspect I can foresee is that the Republican Party is finally going to be seen by many of its supporters as the terminally destructive force that it has become over the past forty or so years.  It's not much to hang a hat on, but it's all I can come up with in the way of optimism.
