Who Will Save the Republic?

You have seen them on high, scurrying with great urgency between columns of marble, the clicks of Armani-heeled favor seekers never far behind. You have heard them in the past few days, saying they are “troubled” or “disappointed” about the latest assault on democracy from the White House.

They know enough history to get this: Donald Trump is the first president in history whose campaign has come under federal investigation for collusion with a hostile foreign power. And now the person heading that investigation, the F.B.I. director, has been fired.

We’re looking for a few good men and women in Congress to understand the gravity of this debasement. We don’t need more parsing about the bad “optics” or “timing” of Trump firing the man who could have ended his presidency. We need a Republican in power to call it what it is: a bungled attempt to obstruct justice.

And the tragic part is that Trump is likely to succeed, at least in the short term. The person he chooses for F.B.I. director will never assemble a prosecutable case of treason that leads to the doorstep of this White House.

The courts can do only so much. They can block orders that violate the Constitution. But they can’t be real-time truth seekers in a moment of real urgency. As for Ivanka Trump, the supposed sane person in an insane White House, she has only so many whispers into Daddy’s ear that will be listened to.

Thus, it falls to a half-dozen or so Republicans to heed the words of a man whose statue they pass every day in the Capitol. “Even if you’re on the right track,” said Will Rogers, Oklahoma’s gift to American gab, “you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

As it is, they’re getting run over. Things that never happened before now happen with such regularity that the numbing and the dumbing down can make a rational human inert. Trump is a tutorial in Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s observation about “defining deviancy downward.” Here is a man who doesn’t share basic democratic values, who uttered nearly 500 lies or misleading statements in his first three months in office, and it has all become mere background — the screen saver of this presidency.

The civilized world was recently appalled at Trump’s outreach to tyrants from North Korea, the Philippines and Turkey. This week, we find out that the family of the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, offered Chinese business owners a path to United States citizenship if they invested in a Kushner property. And a White House visit of Russian political operatives was closed to the American press. We needed Tass, which is to Vladimir Putin what Fox News is to Trump, to provide official documentation for that meeting.

The Trump White House makes gangsters look more civilized, and organized. With Trump, as with most outsize characters in fiction or real life, character drives action. He’s a lifelong charlatan, a con man, a habitué of bankruptcy courts. He thinks this will blow over — everything always does. He’s off to Europe soon, the rogue man out. And that photo with Pope Francis will surely make people forget the chaos back home.

But the truth will out. The journalism of the past few days — those labeled Enemies of the People by Trump now doing the people’s work, as envisioned by the founders — has been extraordinary.

It’s obvious that Trump fired James Comey because he was getting closer to the truth of what happened with Russian manipulation of the American election. His advisers say an enraged Trump screamed at the television when this story would not go away. “Russia, Russia, Russia,” Kellyanne Conway said, sounding like a “Brady Bunch” brat complaining about “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.”

Trump’s assertion that Comey told him three times he wasn’t under investigation has yet to be backed up and looks like another bogus Trump claim, if not a violation of Justice Department protocol.

So, we turn to a handful of people in Trump’s own party to do something courageous — to do the job they were sworn to do. Trump was at 38 percent approval in Gallup’s tracking poll on Thursday and 36 percent in a Quinnipiac survey — both historic lows at this stage in a modern presidency. These numbers may stiffen the spines of some Republicans in Congress.

The Irish Undertaker, Paul Ryan, is a lost cause — and increasingly looks like a bystander to the multiple-car wreck happening before him. The Senate leader, Mitch McConnell — whose wife, don’t forget, is in Trump’s cabinet — is also sitting this one out.

Call out the names: Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, Richard Burr and Bob Corker, Ben Sasse and Lisa Murkowski. They have committees and investigators at their disposal. Their party impeached Bill Clinton for lying about sex. The least they can do is demand some accountability of a man whose entire presidency is a lie.

Tips on how to draw Brook, Sir Daniel, Manny, Sans & Papyrus?

Post I made talking about how to break a character’s design down to basic shapes to better understand their form. This one talks a little about Manny, and it can help with Sans, unless you need something more specific.

Remember that Manny’s skull is basically a box with a bit of a curve on top, and Sans’s skull is made up of ovals. In fact his whole design is kind of made up of circles and soft lines, though you can interpret his design however you want. Undertale’s character’s design’s tend to be vague enough to where you can have most any interpretation as long as it still looks like Sans.

Post I made about skeleton skulls/ Brook’s head

Tutorial on Daniel’s skull that my friend, Bechnokid, made a few years back

For Daniel’s armor, I recommend looking up reference of both how his armor looks in PlayStation All stars: Battle Royale, and/or Medievil Resurrection, as those two are more likely to have reference or the armor in higher definition.

Post I made about Papyrus

As always, reference is your friend when drawing a character for the first time.

If none of these are quite what you were looking for, please let me know.

The Lodge lot as Youtubers would be great tbh

  • Josh is basically already a Youtuber and I love him for that. He just loves to dish the gossip on his friends, like a mini drama channel tbh
  • But just imagine Skye uploading a Storytime video about the love triangle mess and she is just honest with it all and she does blame herself from getting into a mess
  • Danielle doing makeup tutorials, people request her to do the stuff like ‘FULL FACE USING ONLY LIPSTICK’ and she flat out refuses 'my lipstick is expensive, it is going were it belongs. On my lips!’
  • When Danielle’s dating Sean she doesn’t let him touch her makeup at all, but when she’s with Ben she eventually let’s him do her makeup for a video and he’s pretty good at it tbh.
  • Kaylee uploading covers and original songs to her channel, and Noah makes multiple appearences. She of course dies vlogs as well.
  • Noah having a vlog channel where he’s hanging out with the others or he’s on a break.
  • Ben and Sean both uploading training videos as well as vlogs. And they bothfilm response videos to Skye’s triangle deama because some people think she’s lying about it.
  • Oh my god Ben and Sean definitely go Urban Exploring when they can. They have also visited multiple buildings which were locally runoured to be haunted but Sean calls them out on their BS, think of like Buzzfeef Unsolved, Sean is 100% Shane in that situation.
  • Alex makes reaction/commentary videos and she has tried to do try not to laugh challenges but she sits with a straight face throughout them, same with the try not to sing challenges. She also records pranks around the lodge, and those videos are great.
  • They do of course have group vlogs together, especially on staff camping trips. They are regularly uploaded to either Noah or Ben’s channel.
  • BONUS: Frankie has a channel but she’s been caught out copying/stealing from Kaylee multiple times
