"She's a good spokesperson for the republicans" -. QAnon nut MTG constituents in NW Georgia

There you have it. The people that sent her to Washington, think she's a good spokesperson for republicans. So this is the republican party in a nutshell. Pun in intended. Just saw that comment by one of her supporters. They are not phased by her Facebook posts.
Harassing a teen that witnessed the brutal murder of his friends, is not off limits as far as they are concerned. No peace can be made with these cretins. There can be no unity with people that think this kind of behavior is OK.

Re: The GOP -This is who they are. They are not afraid.

I keep hearing that they won't part ways with trump because they are afraid of the base.
I'm just gobsmacked. Say what?

I have been in this black body over 40 years. Ive seen and heard horrendous things done to black folks and poor folks. Yet, we carry on.
When people marched for dignity and for their very lives and the lives of their loved ones, some of these very people were dismissive, proving black lives do not matter to them. Now these folks with their cushy jobs, are afraid? Convenient excuse.

Now, allegedly they are afraid? Nope, I don't think so. They are willing to go along with insurrectionists, white supremacists because this is who they are. These people just say what they won't say out loud. The only thing they are afraid of is losing their perks or status as a congressman/woman or senator. The financial rewards that come along with those positions. That's what they are afraid of losing.

They could put a stop to this and make sure these deplorables go back to the rocks they were hiding under. They won't, because they are just as deplorable. It has nothing to do with fear.

Biden administration exploring ways to speed up Harriet Tubman $20 bill. Will racists burn it?

The idiots have cut up and burnt nikes and other items that have tried to foster equality and justice. I'd like to see if they will throw their $20 bills away. Lol.

The trump defense will be the new Twinkie defense?

Trump made me do it, will probably be heard for many years to come in court rooms.

Some of the violent crimes committed by Qanon

This is an excerpt from an artcle in October - which talked about congressmen that voted no to condemn Qanon
Because QAnon is so over the top, it is easy to dismiss it as a fringe confined to the darkest places on the internet. But that is far from true. There have been multiple violent incidents inspired by QAnon, and at least one murder. Moreover, QAnon has been hijacking the serious issue of child trafficking. In August, QAnon supporters held rallies in more than 200 cities across the country under the banners of “Save the Children” and “Freedom for Children” — language that makes the conspiracy theory seem more palatable for newcomers.

April 2020: A man is charged with intentionally derailing a freight train near the navy hospital ship Mercy in Los Angeles.
Eduardo Moreno, a train engineer from San Pedro, California, “admitted during an interview that he had run the train beyond the track because he believed the Mercy was part of suspicious activities involving the coronavirus”, according to prosecutors, the Los Angeles Times reported.

3 July 2020: Corey Hurren, a reservist in the Canadian Rangers, allegedly rams a truck through the gates of the prime minister’s residence in Ottawa.

March 2019: In Staten Island, a 24-year-old man allegedly murders a leader in the Gambino crime family.
Weeks before the alleged killing, Comello was in New York City, attempting to make a citizen’s arrest of the city’s mayor, as well as the Democratic congresspeople Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff, the Staten Island Advance reported.

June 2018: An Arizona resident blocks a bridge near the Hoover Dam with an armored vehicle. He later pleads guilty to a terrorism charge.
Matthew Wright was unhappy that Trump had not yet made the mass arrests QAnon supporters had anticipated, the Arizona Republic reported. Police said Wright had two military-style rifles, two handguns and 900 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle,

Can Dominion take down OAN? Could their lawsuit put them out of business?

I was just thinking about the Hulk Hogan lawsuit - backed by trump supporter Peter Thiel, put Gawker out of business. For anyone that doesn't know, Gawker was one of the top gossip sites a few years ago. I bit like TMZ I suppose. It was shocking when that lawsuit pretty much buried them. Granted, I don't know what their financial status was or how wealthy OAN's owners are.

Anyone know anything about OAN's owners? I know Faux news could withstand losing and having to pay a huge sum.

Freshman Rep stops trump last minute ILLEGAL deportation of man to place he is not a citizen


In one of its last acts, Trump administration tried to deport man to Haiti who has never been there

For the second time in his stateless life, Paul Pierrilus faced the possibility this week of being deported to a country he has never known, never lived in and that has never recognized him.
The 40-year-old New York man was minutes away from boarding one of the last deportation flights of the Trump administration before a relentless international effort by his family, attorney and a fortuitous connection to a freshman U.S. congressman helped him evade removal.

SNIP

Pierrilus found himself in such a situation. The financial consultant was born in the French territory of St. Martin to Haitian parents and immigrated to the United States as a child. But neither Haiti nor the French government automatically confer citizenship to children born outside its borders.

So Pierrilus was stuck in limbo, a citizen of nowhere and with no country willing to give him legal status. Precise data is elusive, but the Center for Migration Studies of New York estimates about 218,000 people in the United States are stateless or at risk of being so.

Katrina Bleckley, staff attorney with the Haitian Bridge Alliance, said a drug offense put Pierrilus on the radar of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE tried to deport Pierrilus’s brother, Daniel Pierrilus, who is in an identical immigration situation. But when the brother arrived in Port-au-Prince in 2006, Haitian officials sent him back, family said.
