Well, at least Steve Bannon has to report to prison on July first! 🥳

Expand full comment

I won’t believe Bannon is reporting to prison until it happens!

Expand full comment

Do we know which facility he'll be in? If these traitors get country club prisons, it will be another slap in the face to us.

Expand full comment

and before July 2 he'll have a "boyfriend."

If he can find one who will put up with his decaying body. Eeewww, all those nasty bits falling all around.

Yes, he's like the human version of leprosy.

😂😂😂😂😂😂 thanks for that mental picture /s

An involuntary boyfriend… not mutually attracted

The absolute perfect, perfect soooooo perfect for him.

I’d bring up the old canard about not bending over to pick up the bar of soap in the shower, but that would incorrectly assume that Bannon showers.

There's a phrase - "eating the salad', it means anal oral sex. I hope he eats lots of salad.

The drunken asshole looked as if he actually shaved, somewhat, for his court appearance. Post court appearance I loved the guy who was behind the staggering buffoon with the LOCK HIM UP sign!

Ha! I do too. Not a lawyer, but worked in legal field for 30+ years. Never wanted to be one, because I had a life and many don’t.

Got ya right where they want ya. But I understand. I’m older than Biden and from what the media is reporting that must mean I’m dead because he’s the oldest person on earth.

Yes, I’m exhausted from it all too. Seems like it’s all Trump all the time.

The more shit that comes out, the angrier I get

I’m still fighting. Donating & writing postcards. One can certainly take a break but we need to keep up the fight until its all over

Expand full comment

We need to be in the streets fighting for democracy instead of just waiting politely for our turn to vote.

Expand full comment

Soooo tired of polite Dems. Thank heaven for Eric Swallwell…. He stood up and stood tall in the House. He did not get vulgar and dishonest and low. It he made the point. We need like 50 more people to do this

Expand full comment

Meryl-totally agree. Eric Swalwell is fantastic!

Expand full comment

He's young, attractive and smart. Maybe a presidential candidate someday? That is if we don't end up with a dictator in November.

Arne-He DID run. 2019. I didn’t know enough about him. I did like him so if he ran again, he’d have my support!

I am at my wits end this evening. Traitors appointed to the intelligence committee, assholes taking away women’s right to control their bodies, (I guess condoms and viagra are history, too) shit face fangirl cannon submitting herself to convicted felon 34 and so much more. I am writing postcards, letters, donating money, helping people register to vote and I still have absolutely no fucking control over any of this Republican whackadoodle bullshit. I need a short break from reality so it’s time to bury myself in another book about the rock group Queen. Sorry-not sorry for the rant.

Yesterday there was a vote in the Senate about protecting access to birth control, which the Rethugs voted against, of course. These fkers are going to pay in ROEvember.

Fighting "the patriarchy" is like having a fistfight with fog.

It was pointlessness like this that destroyed feminism just as it was beginning to make progress,

Expand full comment

Why, in the name of all that is holy, does this shitfuck get away with this? We need some very good, strong news, because this stuff is beyond demoralizing. You're so right... any one of us would have already been in jail... but this convicted felon walks. Jack Smith has got to be frustrated. We need to vote them ALL out in a decisive victory in November. I hate everybody. Except you guys. ✌️💙

Expand full comment

It’s obvious that the POS Fangirl is getting instructions/advice from some MAGA hack pro-Putin organization like the Federalists or Justices Alito and Thomas. She’s too stupid and inexperienced to figure any of this fuckery out on her own.

I agree with you, Sarah. ARRRGGHHHH!!

No doubt !💯💯💯

I read this today and I don't remember who wrote it. In short, stupidity became fashionable, hostility to knowledge acceptable, and challenging the ignorant deplorable. We have a very serious stupidity crisis. Our political culture is a reflection of our general culture. We're in trouble.

Thats exactly right, Lisa. Scary stuff.

Expand full comment

The authoritarians in the world (Putin, Xi, Orban, Kim etc) are hoping Americans will get so frustrated that they will just throw up their hands and give up-get even more apathetic & not vote or vote for 3rd party so we have to stand up to the bullies or they win

She has a punchable face!

Her eyes less than a millimeter away from being crossed. When she's asleep, each one moves independently. But when awake, she can usually control this feature.

She does look like a demented chameleon. (with apologies to chameleons.)

Thank you Jeff. You know I always have something to say. But I just can't. Cannon, the nonsense in Georgia, and the Supreme Grifters of the US have raised my blood pressure to dangerously high levels.

This is all being done with intent. Judge Fangirl is surely getting advice from right wing legal hacks. This is the most agregious of Donny Fuckface's crimes. She needs to go.😡😡

If I were a reporter, I’d hire a real pro to tail Aileen Cannon 24x7. See who she meets and hear what she says in public. Go through her trash. Catch her. Every criminal eventually screws up. She’s getting help - and maybe more than advice. Promises for promotion.

Her husband is a mob lawyer, so...https://x.com/djfm_dot_com/status/1770463861780705661

So, there’s THAT.

Expand full comment

Clarence Thomas is my guess. So it plays straightforward to the SCAMUS.

Expand full comment

He's in on it. Along with Leonard Leo.

Expand full comment

This Cannon shit is getting old. It's like the entire judicial world from top to bottom has the bought and paid for, unethical, crooked as fuck judges who will do whatever it takes to take care of the criminals they are instructed to assist. Now the orange turd gets another ruling in his favor from the high court in Georgia to further delay his trial there. The 34 convictions in NY was a big deal but all of this stalling bullshit like SCOTUS deciding if he's immune from his Jan. 6 crimes is beyond belief.

This demented dame wants to wear us all out, so we just give up and crawl away to die. Hang on, we will win!

I sure hope so considering her husband has ties to a mobster who's a big Trump supporter. It's like follow the money.

Thom Hartmann reminded me that Traitor Tot was denied a casino license in Las Vegas because of his mob ties.

Go figure. Always surrounding himself with the best people; mobsters, Manafort, Putin, etc. The list is endless.

Wow, I bet that was a huge blow to his ego.

I know his refusal to return the documents happened in Florida, but wasn’t it a crime to take them? Can’t he be charged for something in DC?

Expand full comment
author

as I understand it, when Trump flew off from DC before Biden was inaugurated, he was still president and allowed to posses classifies docs. he landed in FL as a private citizen, so that's where the crime took place

Expand full comment

I would love to know how Jack Smith is feeling about all of this. I’d blow a gasket

Expand full comment

Jack Smith is clearly one of the toughest human beings who has ever walked the Earth. He will never give up.

Expand full comment

And he’s damn smart too

Expand full comment

He took a lot of these documents long before he flew off to Mar-a-Lardo. I imagine that he had hundreds of them stashed at Bedminster as well but we all know those are keeping Ivana's ashes warm. It doesn't take 10 pallbearers to carry a coffin with her ashes inside. I just hope the FBI has constant surveillance on her grave.

As for Cannon, well I hope someday Karma comes to her doorstep. She's obstructing justice and getting away with it and the country deserves better.

Expand full comment

Right. News reports showed Ivana Trump's pallbearers struggling with her casket. Her weight was 105 lbs!! WTAF? And not one of her adult children spoke up about her burial at a golf club, which news reports said would get #OrangeTurd a tax write-off. Not even Ivanka "NO WAY! Mom gets a dignified funeral and service!" 🦗🦗🦗

Maybe she and her mob husband can rat everyone out and live miserably in witness protection like in Goodfellas. Getting her ass kicked when she tries to Karen.

I'm not sure of the answer to that question, but when he was in the white house, he did what the fuck he wanted to do, all the time. So, you can bet everyone else did the same, hence there were no rules as long as the lunatic was happy. Also, it's a big part of the reason we're in the mess we're in now.

She is a true believer. Her background suggests she thinks Dems are all socialists and communists. These types who escaped Cuba (like her mother) like reactionary strong men who suppress liberals. Fuck her.

Still not sure why they did not search Bedminster. There must be a shit ton of stolen classified docs there, & NJ would be much more amenable to getting this case one & done. And once again, nothing can be done! I hope everywhere Loose Cannon goes that her life is made miserable.

It's all political.
