Marjorie Taylor Greene indicated support for executing prominent Democrats in 2018 and 2019 before running for Congress
And then there’s this:
And that’s when I closed Twitter.
Schrödinger’s Senator, the physics paradox known in this dimension as Rand Paul, a man from the multiverse where anything is possible including being elected in the 2016 Goat Rodeo and being elected to the Senate or both or neither can happen at the same time or never, decided to try a little stunt and forced a vote on whether ITMFA’ing an ex-prznint is constitutional. Even if the ex-president incited insurrection and the violent overthrow of the gubmint.
Washington (CNN)The Senate tabled an effort by Sen. Rand Paul Tuesday to force a vote on the constitutionality of former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, but the vote offered an indicator for how Republican senators — who overwhelmingly voted for Paul’s measure — feel about the trial.
Paul’s motion was killed on a 55-45 vote, with five Republicans joining all Democrats, meaning 45 Republicans voted for Paul’s effort. Republican Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania crossed party lines to vote with Democrats.
In order to convict Trump at his trial, at least 17 Republicans will need to vote with all Democrats when the trial begins next month. Significantly, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell sided with Paul in the vote — a potential indicator that he agrees the constitutionality of impeaching a former President is in question.
“Republicans rallied en masse on Tuesday against trying former President Donald Trump for ‘incitement of insurrection,’ with only five members of his party joining Democrats in voting to go forward with the impeachment trial for his role stirring up a mob that attacked the Capitol.
“In a 55 to 45 vote that strongly suggested that the Senate does not have the votes to convict the former president, senators narrowly killed a Republican effort to dismiss the impeachment charge as unconstitutional. The opposition of all but a handful of Republicans underscored Mr. Trump’s continued strength in the party even after his brazen campaign to overturn his election defeat, fueled by false claims of voting fraud, and he left office with his party relegated to the minority in both houses of Congress.”
So this gives the Coup Klux Klan the fig leaf that they are looking for, to say that the process is unconstitutional. But what it says is that you cannot impeach a sitting president and you cannot impeach an ex, so you know, unless the president is a Dim-o-crat and is getting a hot knobber, anything goes, including insurrection.
I will not shed any tears when Lord Damp Nut gets one of the Republicans killed on his next attempt at insurrection.
I’m just trying to understand the Coup Klux Klan’s plan for success, as they seem to clearly think being in thrall to Lord Damp Nut —including letting him get away with an attempted murder Mike Pence, and assorted Senators and Representatives— is the way ahead no matter what.
But what I don’t get is why these
morons er, super-geniuses think supporting and enabling the Trump Crime Family now will ensure success later when they are running against Ja-Jar Vanky, Mme. Twizzler, or Junior Mints hisself when they run for office. The First Shady is going to mop floridus with Marco Rubio’s dumbo ears.
Defend him now and lose to him later? In project planning we always called that the Magic Box, with the step on the Gant Chart: And Then A Miracle Occurs.
For instance, insurrection-enthusiast Sen.Josh Hawley clearly is running in the 2024 Goat Rodeo, which is the same time Hair Füror hisself plans to run his grudge match.
If I were him, I’d want to eliminate the entire Trump Family electoral threat for a generation.
Republicans in the Senate must consider not only their own political futures and their own safety but must also choose between their party and the republic. They are never going to win the non-MAGA vote, and MAGA is not enough to win in most places.
So what am I missing in the GOP strategy?
Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is the latest official to take advantage of the revolving door between Fox News and the Trump administration. According to her termination financial disclosure report, McEnany reached an agreement with the company in January 2021 to start working there this month. During her stint in the Trump administration, McEnany regularly appeared on the network, including more than 20 times after Trump lost the 2020 election.
Newsmax and ONAN are outta luck, Kayleigh is going with the original propaganda outlet (well, outside of Pravda) and still the
best, er, worst.
This is why one should never buy a cat from Ikea.
“Three weeks after hundreds of people stormed the U.S. Capitol in a violent rampage that left one police officer and four rioters dead and led to more than 100 arrests of the pro-Trump rioters, the House delivered an article of impeachment to the Senate, charging the former president with inciting the mob.
“In Oregon, the state Republican Party isn’t just backing former president Donald Trump — its official position falsely claims that the entire episode was a ‘false flag’ operation staged to discredit the GOP and silence Trump’s supporters.”
“Last week, the state party released a resolution passed by its executive committee that says the supposedly fake operation was meant to undermine Trump and give more power to President Biden.”
Damn, the Oregon Coup Klux Klan must have bought a pallet of Kool Aid. That’s taking the Antifa infiltration conspiracy theory into Q territory.
Gonna hafta rephrase our old saying, $20, same as in town:
(CNN)The Biden administration says it is “exploring ways to speed up” release of $20 bills featuring abolitionist Harriet Tubman after the Trump administration delayed the move first initiated by President Barack Obama.
“It’s important that our notes, our money — if people don’t know what a note is — reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman’s image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Monday.
A spokesperson for the Treasury Department confirmed to CNN that the agency is “exploring ways to resume” putting Tubman on the bill.
Pretty cool putting 19th century abolitionist leader Harriet Tubman on the $20, but it still could take a while as The Deep State has to sign off on it, but getting the racist Old Hickory off the $20 would be a plus. It’s symbolic, but it is the right kind of symbolism.
“$10, Same As In Town”? Yeah, it might work.
Sweet Jeebus, Ohio, What. The. Eff:
“…Could it just be that African Americans – or the colored population — do not wash their hands as well as other groups? Or wear masks? Or do not socially distance themselves?” state Sen. Stephen Huffman asked a Black health expert in June 11 testimony. “Could that just be the explanation of why there’s a higher incidence?”
Huffman was appointed to lead this Health Panel BY HIS COUSIN after he was fired from his job as a Dayton-area emergency room physician for his comments.
We make no excuses about this, we love, Love, LOVE the USPS and want to see it restored to its full (and former) First Class glory (see what I did there?) and make it safe from the Party of Sedition’s privatization and other nefarious schemes like trying to overthrow democracy.
This proposal is excellent:
Removing the entire Board of Directors is President Handsome Joe Biden’s best route (see what I did there?) to You’re Fired’ing the excrescence Louis DeJoy hisself; only the board of governors can hire and fire the Postmaster General.
As you may recall, The Coup Klux Klan blocked President Obama’s nominees and left the board completely vacant when he left office, so all six governors currently on the board were nominated by Hair Füror. There are also open seats waiting to be filled.
