For the country to move forward, this commission is a must. If McConnell and Johnson get their way and hamstring it, they will be responsible for what will inevitably follow, a new form of Jim Crow, and that cannot be allowed.
The uniqueness of the GOP being the first American political party to transform into a cult may undercut acceptance but that hurdle needs to be jumped or the existential threat this nation faces from this cult may come to pass.
If you aren't busy trying to pass kidney stones or slamming a car door on your fingers, you may want to watch these panels and the speeches CPAC this weekend...even if they're more painful.
Some are saying a failed coup attempt without repercussions is a dress rehearsal. For the moment, it does feel like Trump** may skate on his botched coup. But some things are stirring, which could result in server repercussions for him.
Our democracy has been collapsing under the weight of corruption that accompanies minority rule. The majority should rule and should have their will followed by their representatives. All of the issues listed above are supported by a solid majority of Americans who have been constantly thwarted by the perversion of our elections and government. It is a time for action. It's time to kill the filibuster and do the people's work.
"Twas the nuts before Christmas, and through the White House
Not a sane thought was offered, not even by mouth;
The pardons were flung by ol' Trump in a fit,
In a manner like monkeys do fling their own sh*t. The MAGAs were riled by the lies they were fed, While visions of Soros plots danced in their heads; And Birx in her 'kerchief, and Barr full of crap, Had just bailed out so they won't take the rap,
Democrats should threaten to pack the court. And, if McConnell pushes through a new justice and then Joe Biden wins, they should follow through.
Have you ever seen Vladimir Putin make a dramatic entrance? If not, rewatch last night’s Triumph of the Trump extravaganza. The White House was the backdrop to Trump's own brand of Nuremberg Rally and the program Triumph of the Will Deux.
I hope states move quickly to use the courts to stop this historic attempt at election theft by Trump but everyone in power, especially Dems in Congress, need to "lock up" Trump ASAP from stealing this country's most valuable possession, our democracy.
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).

The Devil You Should Know Better

It is those that literally believe in a Devil that freak out even most Satanists. I’m not saying you can’t believe in that, but - it’s bizarre. Actual Devil worship has more to do with Christian Demonology and stuff like the Malleus Maleficarum.
