Think Alex Wagner was also spot on

when she pointed out that the smallness of trump was so explicitly exposed for all to see. That could be an enormous political chain ball.

Think you are correct. Also worth mentioning

these domestic terrorists are now even more dangerous because of what the failed insurrection has taught them. Many are ex military and police with solid training and organizational skills. And they have been emboldened.

Totally agree with your opinion. We primarily

see and hear the loud and less intelligent magats the media seems to gravitate to. There are many conservative voters who put the preservation of a democratic US before any one person, especially a disgraced crime overlord better suited for the 1930s mob enforcers structure. Suspect they also know this one is much dumber, but more manipulative and hungry for power.

Sadly I have to agree. If as a democracy

we cannot, or fail to do the right thing, then what the hell gives us the right to try to claim the privilege of leading a nation of such great untapped potential?

Lavrov was taunting the journalist. He's there

for the world to see him laying claim to the WH. And yes, tfg is still the active Russian set he was cultivated to be, beginning in the 80s.

Suspect Putin may have made one of

his rare miscalculations. May have underestimated the effects of crippling sanctions, determination of the Ukrainians to fight for their country and the willingness of the Russian people to willingly accept it all, despite all the propaganda bombardment. He may also have misplaced reliance on economic lifelines from China. It could conceivably lead eventually to his downfall.

While the impatience with the apparent

inaction of the DOJ is understandable, what is not is the baseless speculations that nothing is being done. Even an amateur like me knows a prosecution of this type is like an octopus with a hundred tentacles that each have their own legal and political complexities. Maybe we should all cut the DOJ some slack. We are not dealing with Barr. They are not corrupt. They will not betray our country.

It's X'Mas, so thought I'd offer this bit of

advice from Max Ehrmann who wrote Desiderata: "Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story".

Was once told by a wise old man that you

have not fully lived until life kicks you in the butt, and you are forced to look deep and hard within. Love life, and every single thing it encompasses. Learn the true value of a pure heart and clean mind. You will be amazed at your untapped strength and clarity of vision. Never give up. Always remember the power of love. I have never found him to be wrong.

The insurrection failed, but it has provided

a road map for the next one , unless the necessary protections are put in place. tRump represents Putin, as does much of the GOP. Putin has spent decades, and hundreds of millions of dollars searching for the soft underbelly of American democracy and has found it in how we finance our elections, and in the loopholes of our legal system. We are facing a geopolitical genius, propaganda specialist, and master spy with unlimited resources. Those are some of the realities of the battlefield, and as long as he has most of the GOP in his pocket we are facing terrible odds.
