The tarot card debacle is truly one of the best things I’ve ever witnessed. I tip my hat, Jesse.

For the first time in my life, I’d like to believe in tarot cards

I enjoyed believing in them in middle school when half of the girls I was friends with were "experts" in tarot cards. We also had seances and levitations at sleep overs. It was so much fun!

Don’t forget the Ouija board!

Of course. How did I forget the Ouija board. That was part of our sleepover experience too. And neighborhood boys in the neighborhood throwing pine cones, or acorns at us over the fence into the backyard where we were holding these events in summer was part of the fun too. It would break up our trance as we ran screaming and chasing after them down the alley at night.

Oh yeah, we boys had our own Weedgee boards that we stared at in a trance while hoping to get some answers.

omg, same thing on my sleepovers.

I Loved the Ouija Board. It kept calling my stupid x-boyfriend "BOOB", instead of Bob!🤣

I grew up in the South and did those things too and spend the night parties.. How in hell did those levitations work? And yes, the Ouija board. You're right, FUN!

I was levitated and my girlfriends and I still talk about it after all these years. (over 50 years ago!)

I'm not totally sure I don't -- not as a mystical thing so much as a focus for the reader's thoughts. I learned from a friend's mother, who claimed to be part Gypsy and had a very old deck of cards from Spain that looked nothing like the Rider-Waite set, although the arcana were similar. The cards told me when I was pregnant, and later, when I asked who I'd marry next once I divorced the no. 1 asshole (joking, with no intent whatsoever to get married again) Gypsy mom said I already knew him. And yes, I had already met the love of my life over a crashed mainframe at NASA; just didn't know it yet...

I just hope that this particular reader knew what she was doing... I WANT TO BELIEVE TOO!

I remember watching the insurrection unfold with tears in my eyes - asking: "What has happened to us? Who are these people who call themselves Americans?" And I am now at the point when I want to stand up and scream "What about the majority of us? When do we get justice?"

Today's cry from the Republicans is "Happy entrapment Day." Sickening.

I was both shocked and not surprised because I had been worrying about Trump staging a military coup since the April before, once he started talking about stolen election, which was quite long before he actually went to steal it. I think we need to be making a stronger showing about the stolen elections of both Trump's attempt, and the stolen election that gets Republicans as the majority in the house. A good commercial or two about the methods Republicans use to steal elections. In fact, Clinton was so good in Town Halls in 'splaining things to the people. We need him out there explaining how Republicans have Gerrymandered and intimidated their way into power even when their ideas are unpopular so that plain folks start to wake up. I also think Democrats need to reclaim WOKE and go "do you know what's going on?" "Nope, then you are not WOKE!" "WOKE FOLKS ARE FOLKS WHO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON!" So either you are WOKE or you are a dummy! Let us say it out loud.

And I remember the first Jan 6th, watching it all start to unfold, at right about this time of the day, and thinking, "Where is the president? Why isn't he saying anything?" Even then, for a few more hours -- I hadn't seen the speech on the Ellipse at the time -- I believed that even Trump would stop what was happening, that it had all gone too far. But now we know the depths of his traitorous behavior. It still sickens me.

Trump never pays for anything. I'll bet it was Harlan Crow or Leonard Leo.

Steve, we probably will NEVER know completely the depths of his traitorous behavior. MY GOD, every day...we STILL learn more! How much does it take!

I just KNOW in my heart that orange geezus sold some of those classified documents to a foreign power. Everything that SOB does is about grabbing more money.

Yes, we should run the word WOKE into the ground like they do with the word fascists. We should start a chant, "Old Mac Biden had a farm, V-O-T-E Blue. And on that farm he had a Woke, V-O-T-E Blue. With a WOKE, WOKE here and a WOKE there a WOKE, here a WOKE, there a WOKE everywhere a WOKE- WOKE. Old Mac Biden had a farm, V-O-T-E Blue!"

I think it easily could have been far worse than what occurred on J6. The heroes are those in DOJ that threatened to resign if Jeffery Clark was made head of the DOJ. It would have come to worse violence.

Alina is proof that stupid isnt pretty. Shallow bitch that she is. I'll bet that Trump is responsible for paying off Mr I Like Beer's debts. And I'll also bet that SCOTUS, bought and paid for, will favor Trump. It sickens me. And the AP? I used to think they had not sold out...two interpretations my ass. "We have to deal with the paramecium that is glockenspiel." So I choked on my coffee on that one! Excellent way to start a Saturday! 👏👏👏👏

Nah, Trump didn't pay off Keg-stand's debts, probably one of the sugar daddies that are pampering Alito and Thomas reached into their beer money to help groom Kavanaugh into a pliant SC Justice.

Precisely my point. The man literally refuses to pay for services rendered by contractors at his property, and tying them up in the courts until they give up trying to get the money Trump owes them...

Yep. All federalist society black robes are cogs in the 2025 project. If you haven’t yet seen the YoyTube breakdown of that nightmare, look up Jesse Dollemore’s YT about it that he put up yesterday.

It was Leonard Leo and the Heritage Foundation guys who paid his debts off. Let’s see what that m’effer does when his shit he wrote 25 years ago comes back to haunt him.

“In an earlier article published in the Georgetown Law Journal in 1998, Kavanaugh wrote, “The Constitution itself seems to dictate, in addition, that congressional investigation must take place in lieu of criminal investigation when the President is the subject of investigation, and that criminal prosecution can occur only after the President has left office.” In the same article, Kavanaugh wrote later on, “Whether the Constitution allows indictment of a sitting President is debatable.” (Emphasis his.)”

Susan the media? Is a big part of them problem

Expand full comment

If you're saying the media is a big part of the problem, I agree with you. I have been going to Reuters and the AP more lately, and like Jeff, I'm pissed about headlines like what he showed with the AP. There is NO "different interpretation" about January 6th and the news media should be calling it like it is.

Jan 6·edited Jan 6

But the media won't call it as it is. It's up to us to find those outlets that do give it to us straight and not the bullshit we're seeing on a daily basis. Problem is the 40% who believe the false narrative of this nonstop propaganda like the GOP yokels who were being interviewed last night in Iowa. They made houseplants look like geniuses.

Yes. I think the RW side of SCOTUS is unable to function as impartial judiciaries. So I am seeing a 6-3 or at best, 5-4 vote in favor of Trump. Don't get me wrong, I devoutly hope I am wrong.

Happy Insurrection Day and here’s a PSA for all you wannabe insurrectionists: you will either go to jail and you won’t be seated for office (maybe both!). This announcement was brought to you by the 14th Amendment.

Completely surprised that all of the negative outcome cards were't removed before the show.

No one there knows squat about tarot or they would have. Readings all depend on the layout of the cards and whether or not upside down cards are read that way.

The first president I can remember in my lifetime was JFK. People suffered a collective form of PTSD after he was assassinated. Three good men were murdered in a short period of time: JFK, MLK, RFK. I think that changed the trajectory of America, leading to this fomenting Nazism that we have today.

So Alina Habba admits she's faking being smart. Does that imply that she got through law school by charming someone into doing her homework and writing her papers? Maybe that guy who bragged about bringing down Claudine Gay and going after all MIT professors in search of misplaced modifiers and sentences ending with a preposition should investigate Habba too.

I believe that Trump won in 2016 for three reasons: Comey’s October surprise, Russian interference, and the MSM bending over backwards throughout the entire campaign with stories to make it appear that Trump wasn’t some kind of incompetent, lying, con artist buffoon but a viable candidate for the hardest job in this country. The both sideisms made my head explode. But hey, they made record profits. For this very reason, I believe they could not be happier that Trump is the Republican candidate. And they are doing it again. Now let’s talk about the strange fuck with the guns. For me, the scariest part is the wallpaper. I wish someone would come for that.

As a Texan who voted for Beto twice, my advice to the Texas Democratic caucus is, DON'T RUN O'ROURKE AGAIN!

Every time he's asked he blurts out "Yes, we're coming for your guns" in a gun happy state. And doesn't seem to understand that that is exactly the only thing some on the fence voters hear.

I'm voting for whoever runs against Cruz.

Alina “I look like a doll and have as many brains” Habba has filed many unsuccessful lawsuits with judges dismissing them due to her not really knowing the law. I was certain she’d probably gone to a unaccredited law school but not so. Must have been at the bottom of her class. How she passed the bar is a mystery.

“it’s going to be a loooong campaign season if our media doesn’t stand up and do its job.” I think the media is doing its job quite well, supporting the owner class narratives.
