SPW and Dancing Fox, I really enjoyed this mini- thread and your mutual respect and civility.

You were both very articulate and expressed your points concisely.

Clearly "we" are not the ones that truism refers to.

I love reading Jeff's Substack and my fellow readers' contributions.

You’re correct of course. I should have clarified my statement by saying, “Every accusation by THIS version of the trumpublican party is really a confession”. Does that help?

I am going to say something that, not only blew my mind completely to the point where I couldn't even speak for about 4 seconds but, also show just how petty people have become since the #45 clown show. I have mentioned before that I am in recovery ( 31 years) and I just recently joined a new women's meeting that is struggling with membership and attendance of women who had been whining for years about having a women's meeting in our city. Last night was our weekly meeting and it was just myself and the founding member who opened up. After we sat down, she told me that someone told her that they won't come back to our meeting because of some bumper stickers on a random car in the parking lot that offended her *blinks twice and stares blankly at her*. Now I have heard and seen some crazy shit over the years from people in the rooms, but this one took the cake. Our meeting is at a Catholic church and there are members of the church plus our meeting that drive cars. I had questions for this person and anonymity prevents me from asking them. My head is still swimming over this. Fucking bumper stickers?! This is the level of sensitivity that I see everywhere. And the GOP and MAGAts are pandering this behavior by the mega-shit-ton daily.

I unsubscribe to all my Substacks, even though I may have months left of my paid subscription. I just don’t want to have to remember to quit which I may or may not do. But this way I have a choice. Some just cut me off and don’t let my subscription expire on its own so I lose months of good reading. Others keep sending me their posts until the end date.

They need to support Israel now because it’s needed for their “end of the world” scenario. That’s when Israel gets destroyed to save the Christians. lack of support for Israel translates to antisemitism to these folks. They need to support us till they need to destroy us.

Expand full comment

Has it ever occurred to anyone to point out to the Christian evangelicals that their practice of pumping millions of dollars into West Bank settlements and the like, is actually impious? The CE’s are doing it, not because they love the Jews or support Israel; they are doing it to foment strife in the region. They are hoping that by funding the West Bank settlements things will get so bad that Armageddon will break out.

It’s a curious route to the Second Coming. It’s impious because they believe they can force God’s hand. They can bring about Armageddon on their schedule, not God’s. God, and Jesus, for that matter, have been reduced to a jack in the box. CE funding of the settlements and Israeli hard line policies in the area, are the hand that turns the crank on the side of the box:

Round and round the mulberry bush

The monkey chased the weasel ...

POP! And up pops God, and Jesus with his host of Angels and terrible swift sword, and whatever else they ascribe to him.

Aside from the absurdity of the entire scenario, doesn’t it strike anyone but me that this is impious beyond belief? The idea that you can create a set of circumstances on Earth so dire that you can force God to appear? God??!!?? Since when did God become a lapdog for humanity to order around? To suggest that you can make God do your bidding, so that you and your bitch wife and ugly kids can get your heavenly reward ahead of schedule strikes me as being the sort of impiety that demands Divine retribution. Just sayin’.

Not positive religion or piety has anything to do with these folks’ world view. They believe the rules/laws only apply to us. They are shockingly immature, toxically angry, & scarily under educated & under informed. They create the answers they want/need & then create the narrative to back it up.

My biggest fears are that not enough of the rest of us are cognizant of the danger our democracy is in & that the middle & left will fall back into our traditional circular firing squad, while forgetting the big picture of needing to save American Democracy.

Bizarre how full of shit Stefanik with her government degree from Harvard is going even further to the dark orange side. In May of 2021, she even went as far as saying that Trump was the strongest supporter of any president when it comes to standing up to support the constitution. How the hell is that even possible when he continues defy it while not even being familiar with most of its contents? Again, it's another classic case of not upholding their oath of office.

Now and then, people point to Mitt Romney as one of the few "decent" Republiscum left... Bain Capital is hardly a philanthropic organization -- Mitt Romney is every bit as culpable as David Koch, Elon Musk, MacKinsey & Co and the rest of the robber barons for what Rolling Stone called our "let’s-take-stuff-and-trash-it" economy, taking over companies, looting them for anything of value, and leaving useless husks (and a lot of displaced employees) in their wake. Besides, he put the family dog in a carrier strapped to THE TOP OF HIS STATION WAGON for a family road trip. He's a monster, I say. (Really not kidding about this part.)

Anyway, pretty sure you're right, Susan: there ARE no more decent ones. Liz Cheney is no exception -- she is, after all, the daughter of the guy who deliberately -- and for profit -- got us into war in Iraq on faked "evidence". She's on our side about Trump right now, and at least she's fairly pro-choice (when it comes to abortion rights, anyway) but you KNOW the minute we're no longer talking about our measly few millimeters of common ground, she'll gut anyone who isn't to the right of Genghis Khan, and maybe a few who are, just in case.

Expand full comment

If people judged me by my father’s politics they’d be completely wrong about me.

Expand full comment

I'm judging her by her own politics. She splits with her father on very few things (one of those being abortion rights). For example, even after Bush was out of office, she didn't believe the Iraq war and its goals were a mistake -- just that the Bush administration (which she was part of) had miscalculated their approach to conduct of the war after Saddam was removed. (Dick Cheney believed that once Saddam was gone, the Iraqi population would be grateful and cooperative... didn't turn out quite that way, oddly enough.) I do not know if she was complicit in the pretext for the Iraq invasion, or if she even knew it had been manufactured, but by the time Obama took office, she should have.

And her father opposes Trump just as vehemently as she does.

While she was in the House, she voted with Republicans on other issues 90+% of the time. True, she served on the Jan 6 committee, but if it changed her, it wasn't apparent from the other legislative decisions she made while she was still in Congress.

Expand full comment

Thank you for the history. When I imagine I’m her for a minute I know I would not expect to be accepted or forgiven by the democrats. Nor would I expect this gaggle of pubs to enfold me in their ever lovin’ arms. I would believe I did the right thing though, but also I’d feel like a citizen without a country.

Ok. Fair enough. But I need to know more from her. Could she bring the GOP back around? With all Trump and MAGA crap, I have no idea what they even stand for anymore-besides taking care of the rich… to name the obvious. 🤷‍♀️

Do you want to know what the future of America will be if the Repukes take over? You need look no further than Brazil. A country with a sharp divide in wealth and political power - or Mexico, where what? Five families own all the wealth?

In Brazil, the wealthy elites live in guarded communities in beautiful homes that herald a serene and prosperous future - for them. The rest of the nation is engaged in a Darwinian struggle for survival in its gigantic slums where life is brutish, nasty and short. That’s what the Repukes want for us: poverty so exacting that we have no time for education; no time for reflection; no time to study our history; no time to be inspired by any figures from our past. No time, in short, for critical thought. No voice to demand our rights - long since taken away. No ability to express ourselves. No sense of dignity or self worth. No sense of solidarity, because we’re all going to be at each other’s throats scrambling desperately for the few crumbs that fall from their tables on high. Society will be strictly drawn along racial/sexual/gender lines. You watch. A steady diet of violence, degradation, injustice and despair.

And with the whole concept of social credit or social monitoring the Chinese are using, the fascists will have found a whole new way to keep us in line. Got kids? Well your social credit score had better be high enough for you to get them in school. Got a sick parent or spouse? Hope your social credit score is high enough to get them their medicine, or entree to a hospital ER. Better not be late for work; or evince anything but breathless enthusiasm and gratefulness when you’re there. And just imagine all the social credit scores you can make by reporting anyone who complains, swears, can’t keep up. It’ll be worse than East Germany where half the population was reporting on the other half. Husband against wives. Teachers against students. Workers against managers. If you don’t believe what I’m writing here, take a look at how it’s used in China.

That, my friends, is the Repuke vision of America.

Ever since the shit gibbon and the Republican goon squad had their way for a few short years the political conversation has been all about the biggly, beautiful things they have done since, naught, nothing, zilch. I am in a state of shock that the Republican leadership ( joke ) has done nothing except roil the waters and claim to have discovered their free pass to protect Americans by invoking hate for Dems, blacks, LGBTQ and any person who does not support their evangelical view. Evangelicals are not a political party. Religion is not a political ideology, in fact it is a tool of division used by illiterate word benders hooting crapola while polishing Putins boots.

The real problem are people who identify with the party of lawlessness. Time and time again we see three toes , bobo, and the whole cadre of sneaky rat brained Americans standing with the worst that humanity offers as citizens. Where the fuck did these people come from? Not the America that beat the Nazis and empire of the sun, the grew out of the devils asshole as a religious movement that can’t be touched by politics.

I think it's more that liberal jewish Democrats feel unsupported by the far left, so the GOP senses an opportunity to get their support/ votes by coming down hard on anti-semitism, despite their own history of embracing anti-semitism when it serves them, as pointed out in Jeff's post.
