Democracy Can Finally Be Restored With President Joe Biden

The Bungling and Blundering Tweedledee and Tweedledum Tag Team?

Newsweek reported that Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she would be "honored" if Trump asked her to join his ticket in 2024 should he decide to run again.

What a f*cking nightmare — the twice-impeached and incompetent malignant narcissist teamed up with the do-nothing QAnon bitch from Georgia who was kicked off all of her House committees!

Greene is just one of several names being floated as a possible replacement for Mike Pence in 2024.

Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers (R) clarified that he does not plan to vote for Trump again if he were to launch a re-election bid in 2024. Bowers also expressed his dismay over Trump’s hold on the GOP, calling state GOP leaders who boost the former president’s false claims of election fraud as people who are ruled by “thuggery and intimidation.”

CNN poll shows Trump acted unethically

A new CNN poll reveals that a public consensus has emerged that twice-impeached Trump acted at least unethically in trying to hold on to his office after the 2020 election (79% feel he acted either unethically or illegally, including 45% who believe his actions were illegal), that he encouraged political violence in his public statements ahead of January 6 (61%) and that he could have done more to stop the attack once it had begun (77%).

What do the numbers reveal?
  • 45% of Americans think Trump acted illegally on January 6.
  • 34% think Trump acted unethically but not illegally.
  • 61% believe that Trump's public statements encouraged the political violence that day.
  • Just 23% think Trump did everything in his power to stop the riot once it was underway.
  • Only 32% think Trump did more than then-Vice President Mike Pence to act in the best interests of the country that day. (67% say Pence did more.)
  • 7 in 10 described Trump's Jan 6 insurrection as either a crisis (27%) or a major problem (42%).
These are terrible numbers. They should worry every Republican about whether Trump can win another election.

The American public has made up its mind about Trump and January 6. They believe he instigated it, made it worse and broke the law.

Trump is both unfit and unqualified to hold any office in the land.

The House passes a semi-automatic gun ban

After an 18-year lapse, the House FINALLY passed a semi-automatic gun ban. Records show that the previous ban, which expired in 2004, saved lives. It's about damn time!

The purpose of the bill, sponsored by Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), is to "prohibit the sale, manufacture, transfer or import of all semi-automatic rifles that can accept a detachable magazine and have a pistol grip; a forward grip; a folding, telescoping or detachable stock; a grenade launcher; a barrel shroud; or a threaded barrel," according to The Hill.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said assault weapons are solely meant “to kill people efficiently,” adding “it is time to protect our communities and to ban them once more.”


Assholes like Rep. 
Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), said the bill “would do nothing to make our communities safer.”

Unfortunately, this bill has little chance of advancing given Republican opposition in the evenly divided Senate.

Imprison Trump for 6 months for breaking federal law!

Trump is NOT the president, yet he was caught by Associated Press photographer Seth Wenig breaking federal law by showing the presidential seal plastered on towels, golf carts and other items as he hosts a Saudi Arabia-backed LIV golf tournament at his Bedminster, NJ, golf course, The Washington Post reported yesterday. Such use of the presidential seal is against federal law.

According to 18 U.S. Code § 713, the illegal use of the seal of the president of the United States can result in being fined or imprisoned for not more than six months, or both. Fining Trump would teach him nothing. Imprison the impersonator!

Trump wants to execute drug dealers in "quick trials"

In his speech at the "America First" summit in Washington, D.C. this past Tuesday, Trump once again spewed forth and belched out more of the kind of dictatorship he intends to put in place if he would ever be elected to a second term. This
twice-impeached, incompetent autocrat wants to impose "quick trial" death penalty sentences for drug dealers like they do in China, Saudi Arabia and Iran, dictatorial countries Trump admires.

Question: If the United States is going to impose the death penalty for drug dealers, shouldn't we surely impose a quick trial death penalty for more serious crimes, such as traitors to the United States who break their sacred oath to defend the Constitution by being responsible for the insurrection at our nation's Capitol on Jan. 6, 2020?

July 27


The Biggest Coward Talks Tough

The Washington Post reported that Trump returned to Washington yesterday for the first time since leaving office to deliver a speech that encouraged “tough,” “nasty” and “mean” new responses to violent crime and the forcible relocation of homeless people to quickly-built tent cities in the suburbs. He also proposed additional jail time for immigration violations, a return of “stop and frisk,” and an end to most early or electronic voting.

This was tough talk from the pathetic coward who hid in his dining room, watching TV, while his insurrectionists were out killing and maiming people at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Trump is nothing but a twice-impeached, two-faced liar and cheat. He should be tried and then either imprisoned or executed for his traitorous crimes against the Constitution of the United States.

Republican voters will continue to be LOSERS

Trump is a LOSER. That's a given that can no longer be argued. He's a traitor to America, a liar, a cheat, a snake oil salesman, and a fake. His time in the spotlight will be short-lived, and then he'll be gone.

But remember — those of you who continue to support this demented madman will live on and continue to be LOSERS.

Trump’s hold on the far-right fringe is in the process of terminal decay. A month ago, the Washington Examiner editorialized that Trump was unfit for office. Last Friday, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post, both owned by Rupert Murdoch, declared Trump should fade away. The Post wrote in an editorial that “as a matter of principle, as a matter of character, Trump has proven himself unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again.” The Journal echoed the sentiment: “Character is revealed in a crisis, and Mr. Pence passed his Jan. 6 trial. Mr. Trump utterly failed his.”

So, myopic Republican voters, choose which side of history you want to be on — the winning side, or the losing Trump side.

What if Trump died?

If Trump wins a second term, the next four years will be even more disruptive to both domestic and U.S. foreign policy and world affairs than his first term. It will be an attack on the international order from all sides. Trump will consolidate his control over the institutions of government, bending them to his will, and removing any lingering resistance from the Republican Party. He will insist on absolute and unquestioned loyalty with every appointment. In short, Trump will do his best to turn our democracy into an autocracy — a dictatorship. U.S. alliances would likely crumble, the global economy would shrink, human rights would be in rapid retreat, and this vindictive madman would be in control of our nuclear arsenal.

Trump’s first term had a clear narrative. He systematically purged the government of those who stood up to him and replaced them with loyalists (i.e. neo-Nazi, ass-sniffing fascists referred to as his "supporters") who indulged in his adolescent whims and his twisted and demented world view, as well as his incessant and baseless lies. Trump would feel utterly vindicated by a second unlikely victory — thinking that only he is truly in touch with the American people. These are all clear signs of an
unhinged malignant narcissist where he is convinced that he is the center of the universe around which everything else revolves. Trump would pursue policies that benefit him personally by linking political decisions to his personal business interests, by indulging his desire for ratings and drama, and by continuing to attack people he does not like.

But what if Trump died? What if he choked on one of his favorite Big Macs, or if his clogged arteries caused a fatal heart attack, or if he succumbed to COVID, or whatever?

In short, it would be a bad day for Trump personally, but
it would be a very good day for America. It would be the end of an era represented by the all-time record-holder of the Dunning-Kruger effect, the phenomenon in which the incompetent person is too incompetent to understand his own incompetence. In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which a person of low ability has illusory superiority and mistakenly assesses his cognitive ability as greater than it is.

If Trump died, it would provide an "out" for the many spineless Republican legislators without a moral compass who disagree with Trump, but feel their only chance for a future in politics is through unquestioned loyalty to this snake oil salesman. It would provide the opportunity for legislators on both sides of the aisle to call a truce and finally attempt to do the work of the American people who they were elected to represent. It would also provide an avenue for voters to oust the far-right fringe legislators who would no longer have Trump's support, and to elect mainstream representatives who represent the historical and well-established ideals of the Republican party.

Did Trump fiddle while America burned? Does history repeat itself?

"Nero fiddled while Rome burned." Nero had many enemies and is remembered as one of history's most sadistic and cruelest leaders, and one of history's greatest criminals.

When the Great Fire broke out in July of 64 A.D., Nero was at his villa at Antium. It was believed that he had ordered the fire started. Nero blamed the Christians for the fire, and had many arrested and executed. Similarly, when the insurrection at our nation's Capitol broke out on January 6, 2021, Trump was in the White House, but he was the one who ordered the riot to start and did nothing to stop it. Like Nero, Trump accepted no blame for the insurrection he personally ordered.

In 68 A.D., after a turbulent reign, Nero committed suicide, ending his dynasty. Does history ever repeat itself?

Regardless of his ultimate demise, Trump, the vindictive, malignant narcissist, will be remembered as one of American history's most sadistic, cruelest, and ineffective leaders.

Trump's neo-fascist pigs are destroyers of democracy

Trump has given permission for the worst of human behavior, and his kind of new normal has bent or broken what the historical Republican Party has represented for 246 years. Trump's legion of ignorant followers, his current Republican Party, and the larger white right have been willing to amplify Trump's twisted and demented voice, bringing it into the highest levels of government and power. Trumpism and American neofascism are at once a reflection, a cause, and a symptom of growing racial authoritarianism and outright white supremacy in the United States.

Last week, all 208 Republican members of the House voted against investigating white supremacist and neo-Nazi activity in the military. In more normal times, voting to investigate Nazis and members of other white supremacist hate groups in uniform would be an easy political win for both Republicans and Democrats. But this is a different time; it's the time of Trump, the originator of the "Big Lie" and the evil insurrectionist who caused the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Republicans in the Age of Trump are not willing to alienate their most enthusiastic, albeit unintelligent, supporters, even at risk of being seen as aligned with hate groups and insurrectionists.

Many Republicans believe that Trump's coup attempt and the Jan. 6 Capitol attack were partly justified, and view the people who attacked the Capitol as "patriots." These pigs who are members of right-wing extremist and paramilitary groups, most notably the 
Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys, were integral to Trump's coup plot and the terrorist attack on the Capitol. These Trump cultists are among the country's most ignorant people, and left unchecked are the destroyers of democracy.

Prime Time Tonight: 8th House Select Committee Hearing

Tonight's House Select Committee hearing will focus on implicating
Trump for his refusal for more than three hours to call off his rioters storming the U.S. Capitol.

The 8:00PM (ET) prime time broadcast will be focusing on how Trump, the twice-impeached ex-president, did nothing as the violent mob he incited invaded the US Capitol — the worst attack on American democracy in modern times. Trump knew of the violence happening at the Capitol, where Congress was scheduled to certify the 2020 election results. Trump was the only person with the power to call off the attack, but he declined to do so. Instead, Trump inflamed the mob with a tweet about Vice President Mike Pence which showed intent to incite a riot to disrupt the transfer of power.

Testimony from Trump's White House Counsel, Pat Cipollone, who provided information on every aspect of Trump’s plan to overturn the election results, is expected to be a major part of the hearing. Cipollone, for instance, told Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, that Trump needed to intervene or else “people are going to die,” but Trump did nothing.

Watch the hearing live at 8:00PM (ET) on

Dereliction of Duty

What would happen if you didn't do your job? Or if you lied about your qualifications and deceived your employer? You'd get fired, as you should!

Well, Trump didn't have the necessary qualifications to hold the office of president, and he certainly didn't do his job. Of course, he wanted the job, but once he got it, he didn't want to do it. Trump wanted to be "king," but our form of government isn't a "kingdom."

The citizens of this country did exactly what they should have done — they fired him.
Trump is unfit to hold any public office in this land. He should never again be allowed anywhere near the White House.

How Many Stupid People Are Out There?

Answer: A lot! Less than half of fully vaccinated Americans have received their first booster dose, 
according to the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionOnly 28.5% of people over 50 and 35.2% of people over 65 have received a second booster.

"It's becoming more and more difficult to get people to listen, because even the people who are compliant want this behind them," Dr. Anthony Fauci said. Their attitude is that they're "through with COVID." Unfortunately, COVID isn't through with them.
These are stupid people. That's not even open for discussion.

The Omicron BA.5 variant of COVID-19 is currently the dominant strain in the US, and has a greater ability to evade immunity than the variants that have come before it.

Trumpism is on trial this week

CNN has reported that Steve Bannon, a founding father of Trump's dereliction of duty and wrecking ball anti-elite movement, has his day in court starting today on charges of contempt of Congress after he snubbed the House Select Committee investigating Trump's January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol.

Additionally, this Thursday, July 21st, during a
prime time televised event at 8PM (ET), the House Select Committee will be focusing on how Trump, the twice-impeached ex-president, did nothing as the violent mob he incited invaded the US Capitol — the worst attack on American democracy in modern times. The hearing on Thursday will lay out a "minute by minute" recreation of the 187 minutes while the insurrection was raging and Trump failed to stop it — as a matter of fact this coward and traitor mostly watched TV while Americans were getting injured and killed during his riot.

This confluence of events underscores how extremist political forces that rocked the United States during Trump's term are not extinguished even as shocking new details emerge of his behavior when democracy was on the brink.

"The bottom line is that no one is above the law, whether he's a President, a former President or a potential future presidential candidate," Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va), one of the leaders of Thursday's hearing, said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday.

Trump knew he lost the election fair and square but that he escalated his lies about fraud anyway. He pressured local election officials to overturn Biden's victories. Then, when that failed, he welcomed extraordinary and unconstitutional schemes by conservative lawyers and extremist supporters to try to force then-Vice President Mike Pence to hand him the election in Congress. Trump knew some of his supporters were armed but incited them to march up to the Capitol anyway, and thought Pence deserved it when rioters called for him to be hanged.

It's past time for Trump to be charged, tried, and then prosecuted for his traitorous crimes against America.

Trump is a short-term "has-been" LOSER

Trump is not a patriot. Trump is not a leader. Trump is a short-term "has-been," a traitor, a male chauvinist pig, a twice-impeached failure, a malignant narcissist, and an embarrassment to the United States who will be forgotten, even by his most fervent cult members (aka "supporters"), within a short time in American history. Trump is an unfortunate "blip" in history, like a pothole on a bad road; and his followers are ignorant cult members who drank Trump's version of the Jim Jones Kool-Aid.

Trump pretends to be the Republican party's leader, but his method of leadership is that of a vindictive dictator, and America is not a dictatorship.

Trump's one and only platform is his baseless "Big Lie" — that the 2020 election was stolen from him via election fraud.
A group of Republican lawyers, former senators, and judges, after a review of dozens of legal filings, determined that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. The findings were released in a 72-page report this week. Trump and his supporters had their day in court and failed to produce substantive evidence to make their case in 64 separate lawsuits. In our system of government, these cases provided the forums in which Trump and his supporters could and should have proven their claims. They couldn't. The election wasn't stolen; it was lost. Trump is a LOSER. Period.

Trump has done more to destroy the Republican party and what it stands for than any other person since our founding fathers formed our republic.

This worthless PIG fundraises off of his ex-wife's death

There is no bottom to Trump's deceitfulness. Numerous news outlets are reporting that shortly after the death of Ivana, his ex-wife, Trump asked his ignorant supporters for donations to his Save America Political Action Committee (i.e. the line Trump's pockets fund). Trump wrote a paragraph about his ex-wife on his UNTruth Social app that was then copied and pasted into an email sent to his cult members that had a "Donate to Save America" link attached.

A screenshot of Trump's solicitation was first posted to Twitter by
MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell.

@TheTweetOfGod, on his Twitter posting, said it best: "Everybody's telling Me,
'You took the wrong Trump'. Donald will be in hell soon enough. But first I want him in jail."

Trump is a fake president and fake businessman

Reid Hoffman, a LinkedIn cofounder, ripped Trump a new asshole after Trump slammed Elon Musk.

On Tuesday, Trump said he could have made Musk beg for his help and the Tesla CEO would have. Fat chance, Donnie Boy.

Hoffman said he's "not surprised" Trump dissed Elon Musk. Hoffman said
Trump is a grifter and Musk is an "entrepreneur with a real record of success. Elon's a classic immigrant story — an entrepreneur with a real record of success." Hoffman continued, tweeting, that Musk "started EV revolution w/Tesla, resurrected the US rocket industry w/SpaceX," and is "fighting climate change while promoting American innovation."

On Tuesday, Trump took aim at Musk after the Tesla CEO said that 
it was time for the former President to "sail into the sunset."  In a post on his social-media site, Truth Social, Trump said he could have made Musk "drop to his knees and beg" when he was in the White House and the tech CEO would have done it.

Trump failed as a TV show host; he failed as a businessman; he failed as a president; and he failed as a patriot.

Trump is nothing but an incompetent blowhard.

Unhinged Trump is riveted to the hearings

CNN reported that a 'fuming' Trump is badgering friends about how the Jan. 6 hearings are 'playing out' for him. The mentally deficient malignant narcissist is forever worried about how he appears to his ignorant cult members (aka 'followers').

Trump's inner circle is worried that Trump is obsessing over the hearings when they would prefer that he be concentrating on the upcoming midterm elections.

After all of the evidence presented against Trump during the seven House Select Committee hearings, anyone who would still support him is living proof that "
stupidity is not illegal in the United States." Trump is not fit to hold any office in the land. There’s only one possible take-away from all seven hearings so far: Trump should be wearing an orange jumpsuit. 

Also, the Justice Department has now asked
the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol for evidence it has accumulated about the scheme by Trump and his allies to put forward false slates of pro-Trump electors in battleground states won by President Biden.

In related news,
CNN reported that Trump tried to call a member of the White House support staff who was talking to the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection. The call was made after former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified publicly to the committee. The White House staffer was in a position to corroborate part of what Hutchinson had said under oath. This is not the first time the committee has raised concerns about potential witness tampering by Trump and his fellow schemers.

It's time Trump be charged, tried, convicted and fully prosecuted for his traitorous crimes against the United States.

Trump = Witness Tamperer

As though traitor, liar, cheater, snake-oil salesman, con-man, money launderer, and fabricator of the 'Big Lie' weren't enough, Liz Cheney (R-Wy) revealed in yesterday's seventh House Select Committee hearing that Trump allegedly attempted to contact an unspecified witness appearing before the committee. Investigators said they referred the matter to the Justice Department.

Trump 'should never be allowed near the White House again'

Those were the words of Aquilino Gonell, the Capitol police officer who was brutally beaten during the Jan 6. riot, in an article for The New York Times; and he's correct.

Gonell was beaten so badly during Trump's Jan. 6 siege on the Capitol that he was forced to retire from law enforcement. "Five of my colleagues in law enforcement died and more than 850 rioters were arrested. So many families have been ruined because of one man's lust for power," said Officer Gonell.

Trump is a traitor who betrayed his oath to defend the Constitution.

Trump is a dangerous and evil malignant narcissist who cares nothing about anyone or anything except himself. He is unfit for any office in the land.

Incurable traits of the Malignant Narcissist

Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism. People with narcissistic personality disorder may be generally unhappy and disappointed when they're not given the special favors or admiration they believe they deserve.

That's the definition from
Mayo Clinic. Trump is a malignant narcissist, and he's unfit for any office in the land.

Signs and symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder:
  • Have an exaggerated sense of self-importance
  • Have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admirationExpect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
  • Exaggerate achievements and talents
  • Be preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
  • Believe they are superior and can only associate with equally special people
  • Monopolize conversations and belittle or look down on people they perceive as inferior
  • Expect special favors and unquestioning compliance with their expectations
  • Take advantage of others to get what they want
  • Have an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
  • Be envious of others and believe others envy them
  • Behave in an arrogant or haughty manner, coming across as conceited, boastful and pretentious
  • Insist on having the best of everything
At the same time, people with narcissistic personality disorder have trouble handling anything they perceive as criticism, and they can:
  • Become impatient or angry when they don't receive special treatment
  • Have significant interpersonal problems and easily feel slighted
  • React with rage or contempt and try to belittle the other person to make themselves appear superior
  • Have difficulty regulating emotions and behavior
  • Experience major problems dealing with stress and adapting to change
  • Feel depressed and moody because they fall short of perfection
  • Have secret feelings of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and humiliation
Trump is the poster child for this mental disorder. He should be committed, not re-elected.

Add 'Money Launderer' to Trump's many crimes

Business Insider reported that the nonprofit, nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center accused Trump's campaign of laundering campaign funds through outside firms. Federal regulators unlawfully dismissed allegations that Trump's 2020 campaign concealed spending by laundering hundreds of millions of dollars in payments through firms closely tied to Trump.

The complaint alleged that the Trump campaign "laundered upwards of three quarters of a billion dollars in 2020 campaign spending" through two firms — American Made Media Consultants and Parscale Strategy.

The lawsuit added that this money laundering emboldened Trump and other candidates to repeat the same conduct and deprive voters of details about political spending in upcoming elections.

220 Americans were shot and killed over the July 4 weekend

The fault lies with the far-right, extremist Republican legislators and the Trump-tilted Supreme Court, both of whom refuse to do anything to stop citizens from obtaining military-style assault rifles, and both of whom have lost touch with reality itself. The radical fringe is now devolving to become the Republican base. The triumph of guns is throttling American public life, chipping away at our experience of school, shopping, protest, celebration, debate, electoral politics, and even the writing of laws.

Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenny said, “We live in America, and we have the Second Amendment, and we have the Supreme Court of the United States telling everybody they can carry a gun wherever they want. This is what we have to live with.”

steady rise in mass shootings is occurring as right-wing courts and state legislatures repeal rules and as politicians and gunmakers stoke fears of tyranny and civil war. America now has more guns than people.

One step in the right direction would be to reinstate the total ban on the sale and possession of military-style assault rifles in the hands of citizens in the United States.

The most ignorant bitch on planet Earth

Marjorie Taylor Greene, the vindictive QAnon bitch and Trump cultist, suggested Tuesday night on Facebook that the 4th of July shooting in Highland Park, IL, was orchestrated by Democrats as part of an effort to convince Republicans to support gun control measures.

“Two shootings on July 4th, one in a rich, white neighborhood and another at a fireworks display,” Greene said, also referencing two police officers who were 
shot non-fatally in Philadelphia. “It almost sounds like it’s designed to persuade Republicans to go along with more gun control.

Those were the words that came out of the mouth of the most ignorant bitch on planet Earth.

Greene and others in the Republican Party have done all they can to blame everything but guns for the shooting. The Georgia representative 
tweeted earlier on Tuesday that “gun control won’t stop this epidemic of evil” and has tried to blame antidepressants, all while spreading misinformation in order to support her narrative.

Go crawl back in your hole with the rest of your fellow cockroaches, Marjorie!

Mass Murderer and avid Trump supporter

Not surprisingly, Robert Crimo III, the 22-year-old suspect in the Highland Park, IL mass shooting during the 4th of July parade, is reportedly an
avid Trump supporter and a loner. Crimo allegedly used an assault rifle to murder seven and injure up to 30 other innocent people attending the community's 4th of July parade.

Crimo supposedly ran a YouTube channel that included music videos including gun violence and gory images that now, after the fact, are being linked to the parade shooting.

One person posting about Crimo said, "His fan club told people to 'stay woke,' and allegedly his social media made references to 'awakening the dreamers' through a mass shooting."

To Trump: This is one of your valued followers, Donnie!

Gun bill with no teeth

The gun bill passed by Congress after the Uvalde school shooting was a worthless piece of legislation that had no teeth.

The bill was touted as
the most significant law of its kind in "the last 30 years." That was bullshit! It did absolutely NOTHING to stop the latest mass killing of six innocent people yesterday at the 4th of July parade in Highland Park, IL. In addition to the six people that were murdered, 30 others were injured. All the gun bill did was make the legislators feel better about themselves — as a piece of legislation that would help stop gun violence, it was worthless.

‘We Have to Get Rid of Assault Weapons,’ said Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL).

Until we get rid of assault weapons in the hands of civilians, nothing at all is going to change.

So all of you worthless legislators who patted yourselves on the back for passing that gun bill, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Each of you should have to personally meet with the families of those killed in Highland Park and be forced to explain how the bill you voted for helped halt mass murders by assault rifles.

Charge Trump with "rebellion" or "insurrection"

Business Insider reported that Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks said charging Trump with rebellion or insurrection, an offense under Title 18 of the US Code, Section 2383, would prevent him from holding political office again. She added that Trump could also be charged with other crimes, like witness tampering, obstruction of Congress, and obstruction of justice.

Wine-Banks noted that, unlike a seditious conspiracy charge, a rebellion or insurrection charge would see the convicted offender barred from "ever holding federal office again."

In April, Wine-Banks said she believed Trump's potentially criminal actions on January 6 could be "incalculably worse" than those of former President Richard Nixon.

Meanwhile, Trump is impatient to launch a 2024 campaign rooted in his election fraud lies that would highlight his increasingly autocratic tendencies.

“I think there’s no question, I mean, a man as dangerous as Donald Trump can absolutely never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again,” Liz Cheney (R-Wy) said. She added that the Republican Party could not survive if Trump were its 2024 presidential nominee.

Time is of the essence. Let's get on with the charges to permanently put Trump, the evil and incompetent malignant narcissist, into the annals of history.

Boot him off the bench!

Over 840,000 people have already signed a petition to impeach Justice Clarence Thomas.

Following the reversal of Roe v. Wade, Justice Thomas, who sided with the majority on overturning Roe, advocated for overturning high court rulings that establish gay rights and contraception rights, saying that the court should also "reconsider" rulings that protect contraception access, same-sex relationships, and same-sex marriage.

Even before the court's decision eliminating the constitutional right to an abortion, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez advocated for Thomas to be impeached and booted from his seat. The demands for his removal centered on the revelation of more than two dozen text messages Thomas' wife, Ginni Thomas, exchanged with onetime White House chief of staff Mark Meadows as she sought to help former President Donald Trump overturn the 2020 election. Her text messages show how eagerly she promoted and pushed to guide Trump's failed strategy to overturn his 2020 electoral defeat. These text messages raise a serious question about a conflict of interest for Justice Thomas.

In his latest dissenting opinion this week on a case in which the Supreme Court declined to hear a religious liberty challenge to New York’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate from 16 health care workers, Justice Thomas cited claims that Covid-19 vaccines were “developed using cell lines derived from aborted children.” None of the Covid-19 vaccines in the United States contain the cells of aborted fetuses. Cells obtained from elective abortions decades ago were used in research during the development of the Covid vaccine, a practice that is common in vaccine research.

Justice Thomas should either step down or be impeached.

Republicans: The Party of Crazies and Cowards

Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman made his case that the Republican Party appears to be nothing less than a confederation of "crazies, cowards and careerists," less interested in governing than they are in kowtowing to Trump.

Krugman said the Republican party stands exposed as members of Congress who could provide testimony refuse to do so, and their colleagues turn a blind eye.
Cowardice has become the norm among elected Republicans who aren’t dedicated extremists. The party line used to be defined by economic ideology, but these days it is more about positioning in the culture wars — and personal loyalty to Trump.

Republicans are now a coalition of crazies and cowards.

Donald Trump or The Constitution?

Take your pick, Republicans. It's one or the other. There's no middle ground.

If you pick Tyrant Trump, the malignant narcissist, then pack your bags and leave the United States. You have no business here, and we don't want you. You're traitors — destroyers of democracy. Get out.

“It’s undeniable—the Republican Party cannot be both loyal to Donald Trump and loyal to the Constitution.” (Liz Cheney, R-Wy)

Tyrant Trump's Ulterior Motives

The Daily Beast is reporting that if Trump announces his candidacy for the presidency it's more of a sign of his political collapse than it is of any strength he may have. "He is likely to do it because he thinks it may make him more difficult to prosecute. And because he can use it to mount one last big attempt to fleece his supporters."

You could not turn on a cable news show without seeing footage of the swirling remnants of Trump’s disastrous presidency, twisted character, and warped values.

Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony this week was damning for both Trump and for his former White House colleagues. It revealed with new clarity and shattering details their involvement in a seditious conspiracy against a government they had been entrusted to lead. Even dyed-in-the-wool members of Team Trump 
began to abandon ship.

Liz Cheney, a Republican on the House Select Committee, said, “It’s undeniable—the Republican Party cannot be both loyal to Donald Trump and loyal to the Constitution.”

So Trump may announce his candidacy soon, not because he either wants the job or because he's qualified (which he's not), but rather to save his own ass from prosecution and to continue to line his pockets with more money from his legion of ignorant donors.
