About Me

Woke Liberal Democrat long before it pissed off the Republicans.

Precedent? Who gives a crap about precedent?

True to their hypocritical values, Republicans are up in arms that the draft opinion to destroy Roe was leaked. They're outraged at such a breach of confidentiality and precedence the court has always depended on.

Now ain't that a freakin' hoot? Ain't that rich? When clearly they don't give one shit about precedence. But true to their character, they're just not thinking this one through. If they can toss nearly 50 years of settled law into the bin, why should the 230+ years of any of the Court's rulings matter to anyone? Why should anyone care one way or the other about the Court's rulings? Why don't we just embrace anarchy? Is that one of the purposes of such a ruling? Isn't undermining of the Court's authority in this way just another form of sedition? Another deadly blow to our democracy? Maybe that's what the Republicans wanted all along. It would make sense given their loyalty to Trump and Putin.

Have I missed something? Why have so many suddenly decided to cooperate?

Seems like a lot of formerly resistant folks have begun to cooperate with Jan 6 investigation. Jared and Ivanka seemed to have opened the floodgates and I see a distinct shift in the level of cooperation. Kimberly Guilfoyle and now Alex Jones (!) have joined the stampede most recently. What caused this change?

Excuse me, but shouldn't you own what you are gambling with?

https://www.rawstory.com/elon-musk-challenges-putin-to-fight-with-ukraine-as-the-prize/

Is this the most arrogant, entitled shit you've ever heard of, or what? (sorry for leaving out context in OP)

Elon Musk, the world's richest man, on Monday challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to a fight, with nothing less than the fate of Ukraine, scene of Moscow's brutal invasion, at stake.

The eccentric billionaire and founder of aerospace company SpaceX took to Twitter, where his messages are notoriously erratic, to see whether the Russian leader would test his mettle in person rather than through his country's forces fighting across the border.

"I hereby challenge Vladimir Putin to single combat. Stakes are Ukraine," said Musk.

"Do you accept this fight?" he added in Russian, directly addressing the official English-language Twitter account of the 69-year-old president.

Remember when 10 former secretaries of defense posted that op-ed...

...about the inappropriate use of the military to decide an election? (see the story here: https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/defense-secretaries-letter-warning-trump-signed-days/story?id=75036788)

I wonder if in addition to all the alarming behaviors they were observing from the Trump admin, some of them also got wind of the unsigned executive order being discussed in the media now where the military seizing ballot boxes was proposed. Might be some interesting witnesses in those secretaries.

This is the latest twist on GOP strategy to turn the nation fascist...

"Gaetz posited that the events that led up to the sex-trafficking investigation were likely part of a government "operation" to take him down."

https://www.rawstory.com/matt-gaetz-trafficking-operation/

This is the same sort of wackiness old Newt Gingrich demonstrated on Faux News and Bannon offered on his show. This "gonna lock 'em up when we take charge" strategy is no joke and they will definitely do their best to do it, to hell with the rule of law. They aren't bothered much by the law anyway. They first project the behaviors onto others (nothing new there), when they have already embraced such behaviors in their own methods. This "investigate the investigators" threat is a screaming red alert to the rule of law and should alarm every American who gives a shit about democracy. Will we take heed? And what can we, as citizen do about it?

The changing of the guard so late in the term is evidence of Trump planning the coup...

...with intention.

"On November 9, 2020, Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper for insufficient loyalty and replaced him with Christopher Miller, who then served as Acting Defense Secretary. Trump also installed Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a Michael Flynn ally, to the position of Undersecretary for Intelligence and Security. Trump made other changes at the Pentagon, including installing a man who had called for Trump to declare martial law in a top position.

All Democrats should consider this hugely important question.
