Democratic Appreciation Thread,

This is for the Build back better and infrastructure bills. A lot of credit goes out to Speaker Pelosi for not caving on voting for the infrastructure bill first. We all know what would have happened, we wouldn't have a Build Back Better bill.

I sincerely believe that both bills will get passed and several months ago I had my doubts.

So I am giving my early congratulations to Congressional Democrats. Even a 1.5 trillion dollar bill will be a BFD.

Good job Dems. I feel it in my bones that these bills are going to pass.

Trump's new social media platform,

Yeah we all laughed at Trump's roll out of (give me a break) Truth. Rachel Maddow even laughed at the incompetence of the roll out.

I am not laughing because I read an article about the tons of money that is backing this site. Fucking hedge funds are pouring tons of money into it. When 2 hedge funds got caught supporting Trump they sold their shares, sold their shares but someone else bought them. No, there is a lot of money funding Trump and they will work the bugs out and then this won't be so funny.

Garland hearing right now,

I can't sign in to C-Span 3, my cable provider doesn't qualify. Any help out there?

Garland appearing before Judiciary committee today,

So will this hearing be televised, probably on C-span? Will any networks cover it?

I can't wait for the intelligent questions from Jordan, Issa, Goehmert, and Gaetz.

Kudos to Nicolle Wallace

for spending a big segment of her show keeping the 1/5 DC Hotel war room in the spotlight. Kudos to Liz Cheney who again today lambasted Republicans for not having the guts to protect our democracy. Excellent show today, even moderate Clare McCaskill admitted that things weren't progressing quickly enough, that maybe the select committee would have to invoke inherent contempt and start arresting people if DOJ is lagging.

Disclaimer; I only watch Nicolle, Chris Hayes, and Rachel but I really doubt that anyone else spent much time talking about the 1/5 war room.

Where is our DOJ?

I have to keep after this because; face the truth, the select committee can only go so far, can only do so much and it can be stone walled, DOJ has the clout. This is what I am talking about, why wasn't this done the day after Garland was confirmed to find out the origins of a coup against our government. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, Barr did it to look into the origins of the Trump/Russia investigation.

I am of the stubborn opinion that unless our DOJ acts independently into investigating the origins and money behind the coup, nothing meaningful will come of the House investigation. A person cannot stonewall to appear before a grand jury.

I'm talking about the authority our AG has right now, without referrals from the select committee. It's not like our democracy is depending on it.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General William Barr has given extra protection to the prosecutor he appointed to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, granting him authority to complete the work without being easily fired.

Barr told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he had appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham as a special counsel in October under the same federal regulations that governed special counsel Robert Mueller in the original Russia probe. He said Durham’s investigation has been narrowing to focus more on the conduct of FBI agents who worked on the Russia investigation, known by the code name of Crossfire Hurricane.

Fucking Barr did it just to cover for Trump. Garland can do the same to save our democracy.

I am just an internet lawyer, someone explain to me why this isn't happening now?

Dark Money Behind the Coup,

Sheldon Whitehouse was on Nicolle Wednesday saying we needed to get dark money out of politics. He said a handful of billionaires own politicians. Whitehouse was on Rachel yesterday and stated that Jeffrey Clark was not smart enough to attempt a coup without help. He then mentioned the words "grand jury" and Jeffrey Clark. He then mentioned that Clark is now working for a Libertarian group "funded by Charles Koch." Is this one of the billionaires that Whitehouse is talking about? Are we starting to see who is behind the scenes of this failed coup? How many politicians does Charles Koch own? Joe Manchin, just a question, but did you accept Koch money?

Drag this Libertarian through the coals, expose this cockroach if he is one of the people behind the curtain.

Then again, maybe I am jumping to conclusions, starved for action and accountability. Getting Jeffrey Clark in front of a grand jury is a huge step forward.


Debt Ceiling Vote Tonight.

So let's take a poll. Does McConnell have the votes to raise the debt ceiling? He needs 10 GQPers to vote with the Dems. Will they draw straws?

Sheldon Whitehouse

coming up on Nicolle Wallace, now. DUers who say patience should tune in.

Eve of Destruction, applicable today,

especially the lyrics "a handful of Senators won't pass legislation."
