    Roger Stone says Gaetz should keep talking?

    Stone must not have watched the Tucker Carlson interview. I don't think Gaetz is someone who can talk himself out of trouble. More likely Gaetz would incriminate himself.

     

    Stone looks like someone who would've been right at home in the S.S. back during WWII.  Gaetz?  A (far) wayward version of Donny Osmond.  Both should rot in jail, but, unfortunately, the Eternally Corrupt Twice Impeached Orange Shit Stain has already bailed Stone out...

    I don't have anything big on the schedule as things stand now. I'm headed out to Denver for a few days for my cousin's wedding in July. From there, I may head out to the valley to visit family for a week as well. 

    The snow from the recent blizzard might actually be gone by then...

    My dad is half Scottish and half Norwegian. When I was eight, he took me to visit our ancestral clan house. However, he has never visited the home of his Norwegian lineage, and I hope to return the favor and do exactly that with him next year. 

    I need to get to Scotland one day myself.  I have some Highlander lineage, plus in areas not all that far west of Glasgow... 

    We might hit the Big Island with other family members in August. Maybe New Jersey in November-December-ish (one of the Holidays).  Too soon to tell for all of this, but we do get our second vaccine shots tomorrow...

    They also have their backup date already picked in case March 4th does not happen.

    The backup potential date for Trump to return to office is May 20.

    "Guffey noted that some QAnon followers have already picked the next date if March 4 doesn't pan out: May 20, which is 120 days after January 20. That date stems from an economic recovery plan called NESARA, the National Economic Security and Recovery Act, proposed during the Clinton administration by an obscure engineering consultant named Harvey Barnard, who authored a book called "Draining the Swamp."

    "Somehow this obscure failed attempt to basically reset and forgive the national debt has gotten woven into QAnon mythology," Guffey explained. "The way they see it, NESARA was enacted on Jan. 20 by Trump and under the precepts of this proposal, after 120 days, that's when the military can come in and take over. And then the entire country will be reset back to before the United States became USA Inc. 

    "Trump will come back and the military will pull Biden out of the White House. Then all the debt goes away and the IRS is abolished. And then, at that point, Trump starts releasing all these hidden patents for free energy. It's going to be utopia and all the Democrats will be in Gitmo. Then, when that doesn't happen, they'll either create another fake date or cobble up reasons why Joe Biden is actually a hologram and Trump is actually in the White House.""

    You just can’t make up this stupid shet. Oh, wait...

    Am guessing that response was more in the context of the fact that she routinely (badly) denigrates the Democratic Party, not because she believes monkeys also fly out of Madonna’s butt...

    Jesus, when you're too batshit crazy for Newsmax. 

    I think some of the extreme right media is being very careful these days, i.e., when it comes to conspiracy theories (outright lies) - especially when it comes to subject matter like Dominion, etc.  As to them, they’ve signaled that they may sue others - you know, beyond Rudy and the Kraken. And IIRC, some are suggesting their case against those two is pretty strong.

    Now, how that translates to the media is certainly open to debate, but I think certain Right Wing storylines - like Lindell’s ultra-wacky take - are quickly becoming off-limits.  High risk, low reward...

    That's the type of nut job who got special access to trump - And we wonder why trumps time in office was a clown show :blink:

    No wondering here (I know - is simply a figure of speech). Actually, I recall calling him a clown long before he was elected back in 2016. If the shoe fits... (another figure of speech!)...

    The GOP feuds are continuing even after McCarthy and other Leadership told them just a few days ago "cut that crap out" and stop attacking each other.

    Today:

     Her response:

     

    Horse face sure is a classy type, isn’t she?  If the rest of the GOP sides with this abomination of a person that party is going to be full of “fireworks” for the foreseeable future...

    I wonder if this will be the Congressional session where the US becomes one of those countries with fistfights on the legislative floor.

     

     

    The way this woman carries herself, she comes across as bat-shit crazy. No self control or sense of decorum. She’s one of those egotistical people who thinks she’s always “right” and lashes out at people as a response, instead of acting - and speaking - like an adult. She’s really quite a pathetic excuse of a human being - let alone a United States Congresswoman...

  10. The thing is, this sort of stuff should never be a Democratic-Republican thing. It’s should be a “human” thing.  Your political party should not hold sway over the concept of human decency, but I know that in this day and age such a thought is an absolute pipe dream...

  11. AOC shreds McCarthy and the GOP:

    https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/ocasio-cortez-mccarthy-qanon-074249249.html
     

    “Ocasio-Cortez said there was a profound difference between the party’s caucus last year and the one that exists today. The previous one was Trump followers. Some believed in the former president and his agenda while others kept quiet because they feared him.

    But now there’s a new element.

    “There are legitimate white supremacist sympathizers that sit at the heart, and at the core, of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives,” she said.”

    Sadly, I think there’s a discomfiting level of truth to what she’s saying...

  12. Jimmy Gomez (D-CA) said today he will be introducing a Resolution to expel MTG.

    MSN:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/representative-jimmy-gomez-drafts-resolution-to-oust-marjorie-taylor-greene-from-congress/ar-BB1da3A0

    On grounds of “repeated endorsements of sedition, domestic terrorism, and political violence,” the California Democrat called Greene “a clear and present danger to Congress and our democracy.”

    And Newsweek:

    https://www.newsweek.com/rep-jimmy-gomez-introduce-resolution-expel-marjorie-taylor-greene-congress-1565003

    MTG really is a lost cause.  An off-the-charts crazy whack job.  If Congressional Repubs don't see that too then they will flounder for the foreseeable future (as a whole).  Their collective reckoning is rapidly approaching.  Sadly, I have grave doubts they will do the right thing...
