To me, this one hits the hardest. These are precious words:

“Trump’s campaign manager, felon. Trump’s deputy campaign manager, felon. Trump’s foreign policy advisor, felon. Trump’s lawyer. Trump’s political advisor, felon. Trump’s fundraiser, felon. it is not the fault of the Department of Justice that Donald Trump surrounded himself with criminals.”

According to the Constitution the DOJ will indict law breakers. They, being law breakers, do not want Democracy to win. If they win they will look to harm Democracy lovers for whom crime is not a way of life.

He gathered the worst republicans to be in his cabinet, real shady guys who were so awful they were pushed out of power by "W"'s lot. The slime of the swamp. I'm just surprised he didn't hire Gingrich who was trying to get his nose back in the public trough like the swine he is . He did appoint his helmet-haired harpy of a wife to be the ambassador to the Vatican. Pope Francis looked miserable in having his picture taken, with one of the ghouls who was photographed smiling at Auschwitz.

If he wins another term, his cabinet members will all be adherents to Project 2025. It will be much worse.

If the pace of his disintegration is any indication, by the second debate, and certainly by the time of the election, he will have lost control of his saliva and will make less sense than my cockatoo. Who isn't a talker.

Yes. I think it began and ended with the strongest statements against Trump. He cannot go to all sorts of places as a convicted felon. It is amazing that there are so many places he can still go.

I grew up in KY... The politicians - even Republicans (old style) - used to be able to speak in complete sentences. Now they all go the Comer Fudd School of Post-Apocalyptic Grammar. I am really looking forward to our beating their socks off in the election and all of them getting together to secede.

Republicans today want to sound like they are on the lowest level of the dumbest MAGAT. “I'm just like you!”

Expand full comment

The best example of that is the idiot (southern drawl sounds like he is channeling Foghorn Leghorn) John Neely Kennedy, from Lousiana. He is a Rhodes scholar and thus studied at Oxford. Yet always sounds like a total moron with a mouthful of marbles.

Expand full comment

He pisses me off the most, because he's the least genuine person to ever walk the Earth. He was a Democrat, well a Dixiecrat, until he decided he could make more money as a Republican.

AND, he graduated cum laude from Magdalene College at Oxford, yet talks like he just fell off the turnip truck out in backwoods LousyAnna.

And not one teensy bit of empathy for the victims of the guns. 500 guns! Guns kill people. Guns turn human flesh into unrecognizable goo. If someone turned a gun on Spartz and blew a hole in her knee before holding the gun to her skull maybe all the Hollywood glamorous violence would suddenly slip away and that stupid, insensitive bitch would have some humility and appreciate why millions of Americans want gun control.

Expand full comment

I keep thinking about that whenever a MAGAt brings up the name of the GA woman who was killed by a suspected undocumented immigrant. So one person is killed by an undocumented immigrant and we should expel EVERY SINGLE ONE, and yet they whistle past the graveyard when the topic of the thousands of people killed by our unfettered access to and obsession with guns. Hypocrisy isn't a bug, it's a feature for them.

I love the laidback lifestyle of Indiana but horribly disgusted/disappointed at any congress person from there.

Expand full comment

I can't help thinking that if Garland had gone after Trump and the J6 conspiracy traitors full throttle when the GOP Senate refused to convict, instead of wasting YEARS on hand wringing and going after foot soldiers, we wouldn't be dealing with this nightmare now, staring down the barrel of another election that the GOP is doing its best to subvert and rig.

He held himself well yesterday, but he bears part of the responsibility for how this has gotten so out of control, with timid prosecutions and far too much deference and preferential treatment towards tRump and his capos.

Expand full comment

I ask myself that constantly. Why weren’t the Congress critters who texted “it’s 1776!” and refused to certify the election results, arrested on 1/7 & held pending trial???

Expand full comment

Yes, I agree.Those members of Congress who were aiding and abetting Trump on J6 need not to have their jobs and need also to be held accountable as much as the Orange Convicted Felon.What did the cameras that are all over the People’s House show about who was where etc on that nightmare of a day?Who rigged the place?The most ghoulish of the MAGATS who are foaming at the mouth about the results of the trial are also probably the biggest hitters on J6 including Holy Mike who is in his own class of pious, criminal creepery.

Expand full comment

Why indeed. And why are they allowed to hold office when they were up to their necks in the insurrection? We need to get tough on these miscreants.

Expand full comment

That was Lauren boebert’s work 🤬

Expand full comment

I agree and had it not been for the Jan 6 Committee, I wonder if anything at all would have happened.

If Garland had gotten right on it, trump would not have been an official candidate yet which is a huge part of the problem.

Expand full comment

💯

Expand full comment

I don't know how much inefficiency was involved, but I know that you have to sweat the foot soldiers first before you get good evidence against the mob bosses.

There is a mountain of evidence that we know about, and god knows how much more we don't know about yet. He sat on it for 2 years before appointing Jack Smith.

Expand full comment

What if Biden offered to pre-pardon any foot soldiers who wanted out? What would happen?

Expand full comment

Absofuckinglutely!! I am happy that Garland stood up against the maga-maggots yesterday, but he is not free of guilt! He waited FAR TOO LONG to hold people accountable! 😡

And now Biden is pussyfooting it around the conviction. The DNC told Democrats in MO running for state office not to run on it.

“deranged half-wits” is right! I wouldn’t even say “half…” maybe 1/8? 1/34? lol. Great job to the Democrats who aren’t taking any of their shit! (I have to stop swearing….pretty soon! hmmmm) lol

I have a story, though. I was studying Italian and the professor told a story. He was in class (in Italy) and they were discussing the usage of the word, 'fuck' or its Italian equalvalent. A classmate said that she, being Roman had a column of expressions that used 'fuck'. He replied that being from Calabria, he had six pages.

I'm a NYer. I say fuck like I breathe.

I freely admit it's a personal prejudice. I just haven't ever had a positive experience with a Chihuahua. My neighbor two doors down the block has a few that can be heard quite clearly from inside the house. I'm sure there are wonderful Chihuahuas out there, but they remain a rumor to me. Also, my first encounter with a Chihuahua is when one humped my leg when I was 6 years old and ejaculated on me. There's a history here.

and when is jimmy jordz going to explain what happened when he was ass coach for THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY'S wrestling team?

Expand full comment

I don’t know how to say this but I’ll go one word at a time.

All this stalling by the judiciary and all this time wasting and ‘lookie here’ by the House gets me to thinking that it’s not to defend Trump at all, nor is it really to get even. It’s to give them time to arm and organize themselves because they know they won’t win the election. They most likely intend to say it was stolen again while influencing the vote in several effective ways. Mail, intimidation at voting places, gerrymandering, even tampering with voting machines or trading them out for their own machines.

This stalling and red herring hearings is a strategy. I can’t help but conclude it’s a well planned takeover in the offing.

So many MAGA believe the 2020 election was stolen and believe they are defending their beloved country even if it means arming themselves. So of course the strategists will use that.

Something to consider.

Expand full comment

Agree that one party can go ahead and do the unthinkable while the Democratic Party is tethered to the rule of law. Dems fail to think like criminals and miss the thread or respond to the threat too carefully. If I were the Department of Justice, I would go after any and all members of Congress who broke the law. No fucking around these people test the boundaries don’t obey subpoenas and are getting away with it. I would do shock and awe law enforcement tell them bite me.

Expand full comment

What would you do about the Supreme Court?

Expand full comment

They have violated their own ethics standards. Senator Durbin needs to get in front of the cameras and explain everything that is going on. How Justice Roberts refused to meet after Alito lied. They need to hit them relentlessly until Alito and Thomas recuse or resign. The impropriety is too overwhelming to be ignored. They should have a camera and updates every day they are ignored.

Expand full comment

disagree, i truly believe all this is to distract from trump's conviction. it's a "hey, see how bad these guys are and they're punishing our guy?"

Expand full comment

I used to think that. But Trump knows where the bodies are. He himself is willing to blackmail every one of them. They don’t love him. They love their own selves and families. Him going down means their own secrets could surface. Things they did for Trump. Maybe other things like accepting money from ‘sources’. So yeah they’re desperate.

Maybe Trump paid them to lie, cheat and steal for him and they agreed. See Jay Kuo’s Substack for today.
