this is not as sexy a story as Judge Engoron screaming at Trump, or Marge Sporkfoot saying something stupid, but nonetheless I hope people pay attention to it

The lack of a bank account of any kind is fucking alarming

Johnson gives me the screaming heebie jeebies. Just look in his eyes - even in photos - there’s nobody home.

I live in Arkansas, where we have the bride of Frankenstein for Governor. How much of a criminal is she? On one side of me is Texas, with Abbott and Paxton. Two peas in the criminal pod. Louisiana is below me. If you think that Holy Mike is bad, check out John Kennedy. This good old (younger than me) Louisiana boy spent a Christmas in Russia and got Russian oligarch money as a present. It is so sad that so many in America are so crooked and hide behind religion or something. I have spent 72 years in the real world and that is all I know.

Every day. Worse and worse. I’m getting very concerned that I may need to move to another country. Where, I don’t know. I’m too old to spend my last years in an MAGA-crazed autocracy. I’m sick of the chaos, I’m sick of the bullshit, I’m sick to death of trump. The NYT reports today that trump is beating Biden in polls. I know, I know, people say don’t look at polls. But for fuck sake, it shouldn’t even be close. What is terrifying, is that even if trump ate one too many hamberders and went straight to hell, this MAGAcrap is now so entrenched in our politics that I don’t know if we’ll ever be rid of it. I feel like I’m in a political straight jacket. I want to scream!

I truly think this asshole is going to regret gleefully jumping into the spotlight. And he’s already boo-hoo-hooing about how the nasty media is after him, conveniently overlooking the fact that he has stated that (1) gay people (checks notes) caused the downfall of the Roman Empire, and (2) the basic function of women is to give birth to at least one “able-bodied” worker. I hope he goes down in flames.

As a Federal Employee from 1979 through 2016, I seem to remember we all had to go to direct deposit. So where is MAGA Mike's direct deposit going?

Russian money, covenant marriage, LGBTQ hatred, religious zealot, fake adopted son .. what could possibly go wrong ?

Personally, I think Mike Johnson is an extremely closeted gay man, which is (1) why he "adopted" a 14 year old black son, and (2) why his wife spends all her time on her knees, praying, and running a "conversion therapy" clinic, in the fervent hope that it will get her husband straight, too. But that's just me. As for the no bank account? Probably it's one of those off-the-radar "Christian banks" that don't bother with FDIC insurance or anything, because.

More on Johnson’s “adopted son”

He has a bank account, he just doesn’t report it. Because nothing will happen to him, ala Clarence Thomas. Now WHY he doesn’t list his bank accounts in mandatory financial disclosure statements is a whole different question. Is he just stupid? Lazy? Hiding something? Who knows? But what we do know is zero due diligence was done on the little religious freak, so if it turns out he is a serial killer and hiding bodies of “adopted children” in closets will anyone be surprised?

Good Morning Jeff,

Any coincidence that they are looking to Defund the IRS? Just saying.......

The thing these fuckers all have in common is that they’ve never been held accountable for anything so they think they never will; that’s how they have the audacity to put themselves out there.

Important to mention that trump has to “just stop it” because Jeff’s hyphenated descriptive paragraph is soon to be a 15,000 word novel. 😆

Johnson’s money is stuffed in a mattress somewhere. The question is whose?

..."flim flam fucksticks" 🤣🤣

Mikey probably stores his money in his daughter's chastity belt, to which he holds the only key. Or perhaps, in the safe in his underground S&M lair.
