What's going on with the investigation into January 6th?

Everything I'm finding dates back to the end of August when communication companies were asked to preserve records and McCarthy illegally threatened said companies.

What the hell?

I see they are going after Milley for putting China at ease that Cheeto was only blustering

Don't let the "Big lie" supporters claim the Democrats did the same thing in 2016

Big lie supporters like to claim what they are doing is no different than what Democrats did in 2016.

In 2016, Democrats rightfully pointed out there was evidence of Russian interference and other violations: Manafort, Flynn, Wiki Leaks, a meeting at Trump Tower over "adoptions", Russia finding e-mails, announcements of investigations into Hillary's laptop, Carter Page, strange utterances from Rudy Giuliani etc. It was never about the actual ballot counting.

Democrats never said the 2016 election was rigged in the way the election was conducted, or how the votes were counted. Our democracy itself was not in doubt.

On the other hand, Republicans who believe the "Big Lie" are literally trying to cast doubt on the way the 2020 election was conducted. They are promoting the idea that the election was fraudulent simply because their guy didn't win.

There is a big difference. Don't let this lie go unchallenged.

The brain washing is complete

My mother, and one of my brothers believe the 2020 election was stolen. Their proof? They saw more Trump yard signs. Yep, that's their proof...that, and the way Trump drew large crowds to his rallies.

Forget about actual proof, branding is all they need to join the cult.

I'm sorry my family is part of the problem in this country. I'm working on it.

Is anything being done about Kevin McCarthy's threats? I'm serious.

I can't find anything being done about McCarthy and Greene openly threatening communication companies that comply with the investigation into January 6th.

I know our democracy is hurting, but are we that far gone that such threats get ignored? Why the hell aren't these two thugs being punished for such fascistic threats?

This may seem unfair, but it's my honest opinion that...

that certain (maybe not all) right-wing media pundits, MAGTs, haters and republicans finally got what they've been salivating for: deaths in Afghanistan they can blame on Biden.

If this is unfair of me? I don't care.
I know too many MAGAts, and I assure you they are glad there have finally been some deaths. It was the one thing missing for them in their narrative.

Oh this is rich

Apparently the officer that shot Ashely Babbit has agreed to talk about the incident publicly.

The right-wing pundits are on the radio saying this is a bad idea because it will make it look like Babbit was actually committing a crime and paint Trump supporters in a bad light.

They were all about doxing him, but they don't want his side of the story to come out. Sick!


I'm am so sick of hearing the right- wing media root for failure

Don't tell me republicans and right-wingers want the evacuation to succeed. They just can't wait until someone does something stupid and an American gets killed before they are evacuated. It is sickening how they make everything about politics.

When your Trump loving friends and relatives complain about Biden's handling of Afghanistan

Tell them "if Trump had a better plan for leaving Afghanistan he should have shared it"!

Point out that it is America that is getting out of Afghanistan, not Biden or Trump. It is our nation as a whole that is doing this, not a particular president. This is a case where we should demand cooperation between administrations, not politics.

Since Trump set the date, essentially obligating the next administration, he should have cooperated fully with that next administration.

Furthermore, Trump should have been working overtime to set up any visas for the translators and other folks that helped us in our 20 year war. Instead of waiting to the last minute to decide how to get people out it should have all been in place by May 1st of 2021, that being the date Trump set for the withdrawal.




A point I'm not hearing made enough about the evacuation from Afghanistan

Fact: Trump had more time in office to plan the evacuation than Biden did. Why wasn't a lot of the groundwork for such a massive pull out done during Trump's time in office? He was, after all, the one who set a date and made the deal with the Taliban. What did he do after he set that date and made the deal?

Consider the timeline:

-Trump made his deal with the Taliban in February of 2020

-Trump's deal set a date in May of 2021 for America to leave.

-That means there would have been 15 months to plan the evacuation if that date had been kept

-Trump's presidency lasted until the end of January 2021

-That means Trump was president during a whole year of the preparation time

-What was the Trump administration doing to effect a smooth transition out of Afghanistan?

-Why wasn't the Trump administration making plans to help the translators and others get the visas they would need?

-What plans were being made to accept refugees into the United States and other countries under Trump?

-Getting out of a 20 year war takes more time than 7 months. Just sayin.

-Biden had 7 months, Trump had a year.
