Do you think Jordan can win the speakership now that he has Trump’s endorsement?

AdLib2 hours ago

You know I’m not sure about that. I’m thinking they might want sckelize(sp)

The House is in a bit of a mess don’t you think?

Scalise may have a better shot at it…the guy who bragged he was “David Duke without the baggage”. A klansman or a traitor? Sounds like a Repub race. BTW, years ago, I met Scalise but very briefly.

AdLib2 hours ago

Scalise is a bit of a nut case. But man things are a mess on the Repug

side of the House

I think the ones who have the power, if they have the spines, are the dozen or so Repubs who won in districts Biden won. They have to know that if Jordan’s elected and killing Ukraine aid, Biden impeachment, and Trump empowerment is pushed forward, they lose their seats.

AdLib2 hours ago

Scalise is a bigot and a MAGA liar. Jordan is just worse than him. Both are nuts and nihilists.

AdLib2 hours ago

I think they lose their seats in any scenario but to your point they could be the ones to bring calm to the House that is if they have the balls to do so.

twilson117

I think you’ve summed it up the Repug side of the House they all seem to be in the bigot class.

twilson117

Exactly, that’s my point. I think many of them lose in 2024 (including Santos) but out of self-preservation, I would hope they would refuse to vote for Jordan and his madness in the possibility that they could win again in 2024.

AdLib2 hours ago

I want to see how they spin Trump spilling Nuke Sub information to the Aussie that was talking with Tump

twilson117

They descended over the years to the lowest common denominator to keep their base, bigotry, hate, lies and fear. Not one of them has an actual, thought out policy. Nothing, no ideas to help people. There is zero reason for any halfway smart and decent person to vote for them which is why they depend more each year on voter suppression and now, overthrowing elections.

Hey how is CL doing have you spoken with her lately??

twilson117

2 hours ago

You’re correct on that it’s not about making the government work. It’s all about filling their campaign coffers and just going along to get along.

Murph is in the House, Hey Murph

twilson117

They’ll just parrot Trump who’s using the most idiotic excuse that he relies on most, “It’s fake news, just Democrats trying to interfere in the election!” That’s all he’s got, no defense just like all the criminal and civil cases he’s trying to get thrown out or stalled, he has no defense because he’s guilty.

Hey Murph!

hello Ad and TW…..good to be with you.

Ad if it’s just fake news then why is talking about it all the time?

twilson117

CL is doing fine, she still needs to get a small procedure done then she can order glasses, she says her vision is batter now but without the new glasses, she doesn’t know yet how much better.

AdLib2 hours ago

Where has Choice Lady been….do we know?

MurphTheSurf3

Ah…thanks Ad.

Question…why is Trump not being brought up on charges in re. the exposing the nuclear triad as he has done?

MurphTheSurf3

Ad well give her my best, and tell her I’m really enjoying Democracy in Chains it’s eye opening.

TW – Yes, there is no reason for Repubs to get elected than purely having the power and money that comes with the office. They offer nothing to the people…aside from the 1% who will get tax cuts while the 99% lose SS, Medicare, and funding to help the vulnerable.

AdLib2 hours ago

Ad look those Aholes need to keep their little hands off my SS check.

twilson117

2 hours ago

Murph – Yep, it’s hard for CL to read along the way things are now, hopefully in about 3 weeks, she’ll be back!

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph – Don’t forget, the documents case is in the hands of Trump stooge, Loose Cannon. So adding the submarine breach as a charge would probably give her additional reasons to stall the prosecution she’s already stalling. Plus, it surely will be used by Smoth to make the case of a pattern of betrayal of US secrets.

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph how are things in your neck of the woods? Any fall out from the Trump lovers about him spilling nuclear sub secretes or are they saying it’s all made up.

twilson117

2 hours ago

TW and Murph, I will pass along your inquiries and thoughtfulness to CL.

AdLib2 hours ago

TW – If Jordan became Speaker, I would expect him to at least create a committee to deliver plans to cut SS and Medicare, if not try to pass such cuts. Of course, The Senate and Biden would kill that bill dead.

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph – Do you think Kunce will beat Hawley?

AdLib2 hours ago

I am just reading along right now.

MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago

TW – I think that Trump’s endorsement of Jordan could doom him, there only need to be 5 of the Biden-winning-district Repubs out of like 18, to just vote “Present” to stop him.

AdLib2 hours ago

Ad…..is there no way to reshape how that charge could be handled……as an act of outright treason.

MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago

Ad I believe Jordan knows better than to mess with SS. He doesn’t want a phone calls and visits from mad Senior Citizens. We can be a bit much to handle.

twilson117

2 hours ago

Ad….Kunce is working very hard to create a grass roots infrastructure….he will do all he can….and the spoiler “Democratic” candidate is not getting any traction so I think he gets the nomination and then its head to head with Hawley.

MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago

Ad how is Hawley’s support? He seems like folks would see through his duplicity.

twilson117

2 hours ago

Murph – I absolutely think it could, it sounds like the DoJ has emails and/or texts where that classified info was passed from the Aussie billionaire to 40-80 other people and their emails to others. But it’s harder to prove in a court case when the original criminal breach was oral than the cases they have now where the physical document was in his hands and possession after he was in office.

AdLib2 hours ago

TW….things in my neck of the woods? There is little outspoken support for Trump but that support is the ground on which so many here stand……I think that there is an awareness that he is not a good person or a good leader BUT at least he is not a Democrat.

MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago

Or should I say demon-crat.

MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago

TW – Yes but the way for Jordan and other Repubs to hide from taking the blame of moving forward with cutting SS and Medicare, is to create a committee and skew it so that they throw up their hands and say, “The experts we brought in to advise us told us we have to cut SS and Medicare or they’ll go broke, don’t bame us!”

AdLib2 hours ago

blame

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph but there his documents he cand do anything he wants with them, then the scene shifts to him being tossed into cell and audience hears the clacking of the cell door.

twilson117

2 hours ago

Murph – That’s good to hear. Kunce tweets a graphic showing him essentially tied with Hawley. If that holds, considering the overperformance of Dems even in Red states, I think he could eek it ou
