don cant refuse2
IT'S A COMMAND THEY CAN'T REFUSE!
Surely, you’re stunned that party bosses Steve Scalise and Kevin McCarthy, allegedly United States Congressmen, are standing in the way of their party, formerly known as Republicans, to approve criminal sanctions against once-indicted and now pardoned, Steve Bannon.

No refused offers needed. Just commands accepted.

Scalise claimed that the America people don’t want more partisan activities coming from Democrats. Mind you, he was perfectly fine with Benghazi, Clinton phone, investigations of Hunter and Joe Biden, the current Trump-inspired investigation of the FBI and DOJ. But, he’s simply not interested in determining to what extent his Godfather, Donald Trump and the family conspired to return “The Don” to the White House. He’s not concerned about the deaths of the Capitol Police. Nor is he concerned that he and his party are spreading dangerous lies about the past election, that our Democracy, our beacon of light throughout the world is in great peril of extinguishment. What the Don commands, he gets! His wishes are his demands.

Republicans claim that Nancy Pelosi is partisan, and that she disallowed republican participation in the January 6 investigation. This is fiction. Pelosi and the Democrats wanted a bipartisan commission of non-elected officials who could search for the truth. McCarthy sent an emissary to devise a plan. Mission was accomplished. The final plan established that neither party could subpoena another without approval from both sides of the coin. However, the Don said NO. No way does he want democratic dogs sniffing the crime scene.

So, Trump ordered and like Pavlovian dogs, Scalise and Speaker McCarthy responded. Their excuse for backtracking on the bipartisan commission was that the FBI and congressional committees were already investigating these facts. False. No congressional committee was investigating the origins and Trump’s involvement in the DC Massacre. They weren't obtaining information from the National Archives. They weren’t sending subpoenas to hostile witnesses, such as Bannon.

As a result, months ago, Pelosi had no choice but to go another route, launching the January 6 investigatory committee. She granted McCarthy five picks. He deliberately chose two members of Congress who essentially were known as Trump-obedients and sabotagers. Pelosi’s putting them on the panel would be like selecting Clemenza and Tessio to investigate the mafia. Even worse, at least one of the two, Jim Jordan, is an important witness to the conspiracy. Jordan and Trump spoke multiple times a day. In no time, he’d be passing along top secrets and strategies to the Don, like clockwork.

Once Pelosi declined, McCarthy, the ever-so-loyal lieutenant seized the opportunity. He pulled out his contribution and participation. He announced the committee as a witch hunt, a Pelosi railroad job. In effect, he said, “if Clemenza and Tessio ain’t participating, the hell with your committee”. What he never disclosed, however, is one tiny little fact. Pelosi approved other members of McCarthy’s wish list who could have joined the committee. But the cast was done.

McCarthy got what he wanted. He snookered Pelosi. Learning from his master, he gave Pelosi an offer she had to refuse and he could now go on record to lambaste the committee as another witch hunt. The three Pelosi-accepted republicans were never heard about again.

McCarthy succeeded in sullying the committee. He had zero interest in obtaining truths. His goal was to taint the proceedings with lies and fabrications, just as he did with the impeachments. All he had to do was call it unfair and biasd and his own family of subservients would surely follow.

It also has become clear why McCarthy and Scalise have killed all attempts to see truths. He also is a very important witness. He had that infamous phone call that he now says was no big deal. In addition, according to Kraken Powell, he and Scalise had prior knowledge of an attempt to take one last crack at the US Supreme Court, a last-second January 6 legal filing. However, they needed time. They needed a day or two for the court to respond to the emergency pleading. It became a race against the clock.

As the insurrectionists climbed the walls and were on the front lines trying to stop the certification, the Don and his legion were seeking delays of the Congressional proceedings. Trump and Giuliani even called around the horn trying to get members of the Senate to slow down the certification vote. Their ace in the hole was that Supreme Court Justice Alito would intervene in the election process and “Stop the Steal”.

Of course, Scalise, McCarthy and members of their House of Representatives have been claiming lately including today “move on, ignore the carnage, forget the importance of our democracy, investigate Pelosi”.

The Godfather has commanded. The family is doing the bidding.

Two-hundred and two (out of 211) House Republicans voted against sanctioning Bannon for his refusing a Congressional subpoena.

Those brave Congresspeople who rebelled should be forewarned. Don't be sleeping around any white horses.

A SMOKING ADMISSION?

On Friday, Congress released secret Department Of Justice documents. They revealed that former President Donald Trump once again tried to pressure the DOJ to continue his Don Quixote impossible dream--to overturn the 2020 election.

“Moreover, the entire project at times feels like product-placement for Trump’s various assets. Contestants stay at the Trump Towers and speak of him in hushed, reverent tones, fretting about what to name their teams in order to impress him.” Variety review of The Apprentice Jan. 4, 2004.

The groveling subservience and worship of Trump by many of his subordinates began almost immediately. Who can forget 1st chief of staff, Reince Priebus, groveling before his boss at the first cabinet meeting. Before starting, Trump went around the table and gave his appointees a chanced to tell the media what a swell guy he was.

IT ALL SMELLS SO GASLIGHTING

Republicans, especially Senator Cassidy of Louisiana and Donald Trump of Conspiracy Land, are blaming the Democrats, President Biden, and the media for the recent rise in Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.

Cassidy, also a medical doctor, was asked during Fox News Sunday about the recent increase in covid incidents across the nation. Meantime, continuing his assault on the truth, Trump exploded another scud this weekend, designed to spray chaos, regardless of the outcome.

floyd babbitt2
Some far-right wing sites are publishing the identity of the "alleged" cop that shot Ashli Babbitt.  The publications I have seen are showing a black man as the "murderer" as they put it.

You do recall, Babbitt was the lady killed on 1/6 as she tried to crash through the window of the door that separated the rioters  from the lawmakers.

trump flag point 11zon
In the War of 1812, Francis  Scott Keys wrote The Star-Spangled Banner, a tribute to our flag kept aloft by patriots who sacrificed their lives every time it was knocked down one perilous night by withering cannon fire from 100 + British Men of War anchored off Fort McHenry. The Fort was not a full-fledged military establishment and contained many families with abundant women and children but that was immaterial to the invaders. 

On Jan. 6, X-President Trump’s shock troops turned our flag upside down and used their poles to stab, maim, and kill police, hunt legislators they could murder, and desecrated the U.S. Capitol a stone’s throw from the White House the British burned during the same War of 1812. Men and women in the hundreds of thousands have died under our flag to preserve freedom and our way of life. It’s a time of choosing whether we are Americans, or worshipers of pagan god.

bent minBENT OUT OF SHAPE?

I'm not. So what if the Senate Republicans refuse to approve a bipartisan 9/11 style investigation. By standing against transparency, they don’t mind kicking the capitol police in the gut one more time. Nor do they care about hiding all roads leading to Donald Trump or to others involved in the Jan. 6 insurrection.

They say they want to put the past behind them. Really? Six months past the elections, they want states to investigate election results in swing states. For them, state certifications don’t matter. Nor do over 60 court decisions including those by the president’s own appointees. They’re fine with the Lord and Master hiding his past while he continues to spread the BIG LIE.

NOW THAT THE LIZ CHENEY "ET TU ELISE" MOMENT IS HISTORY...

Where do we go from here? That depends upon knowing, just where are we now?

On Friday, Elise Stefanic got her “kiss the ring” opportunity showing her immense loyalty to the Mar-a-Lago Emperor for his elevating her to Cheney’s perch. The New York State Congresswoman is in perfect company with Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise.

Taking the Trump BIGGER BIG LIE oath

Written by

oath down

Since the November vote, Trump has been calling the 2020 contest (the one where he got shellacked), a "stolen election". He promoted what others coined "Stop the Steal". That phrase inspired some of his most angry supporters to the "The Big Insurrection" at the nation’s capitol. As a result, hopefully, some of those folks who he whipped into a frenzy will spend time in the BIG HOUSE.

After over 60 court decisions, including his own 6-3 majority US Supreme Court bouncing him on his supreme tush, Trump continues with his attack upon our democracy.   He has "ghosts-of-a-chance" fantasy to change the elections results.  His behavior reminds many of us of an emotionally spoiled-brat--who will torch earth rather than being branded as a “loser”.

SCREW GOP min
So, the GOP doesn't like Trump hogging donors for $ which he is demanding cash go only to his Save America PAC. He claims he doesn't want any $ to go to RINO'S (and fools) and presumably those who impeached him.  He says he doesn't want his name/identity to be used without his approval.
If you're a donor, just what do you do? Do contribute to his personal slush fund PAC or do you stay loyal to the party? True, the party might help people like Rep. Cheney, Romney and others.
But, don't forget, the number of Republican US Senators not seeking re-election is now up to FIVE.  Not good, even for mastermind Mitch McConnell.
