Let's say it straight out: Tom Cotton is a racist. He condones slave labor but assigns it no value. He would never have freed a single man, but he would use bigot law to punish anyone who even holds a different opinion.
There is one person who could gum up the works of Trump's dictatorship-in-process. And he's not even in elected office. Yet. Joe Biden has said that this election is a battle for the very soul of America. So right now would be a good time for Biden to really flex on this, step up and fire a loud warning shot across the bow of Trump's henchmen. The Rule of Law is coming back in 2021...and it could be coming for them.
Why is the president allowed to use his immense public power to attack private individuals out of infantile spite? Have we dispensed with the law altogether?
Maybe a Real Estate Shyster and a bunch of brain-dead mobsters are not the best choice to lead a global pandemic response?
This looks more like the last stage of a coup. Consolidating power in himself by stacking the courts as his puppets, discrediting belief in the truth by attacking the press as fake and rigging elections with voter suppression. Spreading propaganda and lies while facilitating Russian-aided disinformation on social media. Trying to shut down the postal service which means shutting down voting by mail. Lastly, raising a fascist, well armed militia to stand against his political enemies. The threat to our democracy couldn't be more urgent.
First, Republicans told us that, "Truth isn't truth." Then, the most remorseless liar that I've ever seen informed us further that, "There's no such thing as truth." Now, Mr. Santorum would have us believe that, "Truth is irrelevant."
When Will The FBI, Or William Barr, Make It's Move To Subvert Trump's Impeachment Trial? Today?
Why do Republicans appear to be playing an all-in, "Doomsday" game. Is there no tomorrow, Mitch?
Republicans will be able to block, individually, any new witnesses. They will do this with every important witness. That's a rigged trial.
There have to be limits on power. If there are none, then evil men and women will use fear, brute force, and nationalism to enslave us.

Weekend Music Thread – Please Mr. Postman

This weekend's music thread is dedicated to our wonderful postal workers and stopping this assault on America. Songs about letters, writing, communicating, talking, listening, and getting the word out one way or another is what we're carrying door-to-door this weekend.

Can the Freudian Bull Doc, Trump is a Mobster

I've known the son of a powerful New York Mafia don. He told me, "They started telling me when I was a brat kid that everyone is just as crooked as everyone else. That no one is any "smahta," that that's just the smartasses talking out their asses." And they hate experts and smartass know-it-all assholes above all things (except, maybe, boredom).

Protect, Isolate, Quarantine (Oh, Louis Gohmert Was Right!)

Mask-wearing alone, though essential, will not stop the pandemic. It has to be part of a comprehensive plan, and it has to be proven in the laboratory as effective. But, even in a detail as obvious as this, there is no plan. Anyone can make and sell a mask.

Weekend Music Thread – Don’t Stop Me Now

This weekend our theme is for songs about up and down, stopping, going and even crashing...as Trump has done to the economy and our democracy...and is finally catching up to him in 94 days.
