The truth is too dangerous to tell ?

Some people are too afraid to speak it. Some are too afraid to even think it.

It is so much easier to simply ignore. Especially for those in positions to do something about it.

What is the truth about January 6th? Were all those people that have been arrested independent actors? What is the truth about sedition and incitement to insurrection? Where do the charges stop? Can we get a mulligan on this one?

What is the truth about Russian interference in our elections of 2016 and 2020? Can we really handle the truth? Who, besides Paul Manafort, was in collusion with Russian intelligence? And why? Do we really want to know?

Do we really want to know about all the money-laundering? How many politicians have money in off-shore accounts? Can we just sweep this question under the rug?

How much money was stolen from the US Treasury in the last 4 years? Do we even have an idea? Did Mnuchin ever account for the $400 billion he had set aside? Does anyone care?

How about all the bribes and threats and obstructions of justice? Are those no longer crimes? How about threatening elected officials to find votes or else? Is that even worth bringing up?

Are there lines that our Justice Department are afraid to cross? Or are all these imagined crimes just figments of our imagination?

Do true Republicans have the backbone to fight for their Party?

And for their country?

And for their democracy?

Does the Party in Washington truly represent the Republicans throughout the country? That is the question.

Do Mitt Romney and Liz Cheney better represent the Republicans at large in this country?

Do they believe their Party is worth fighting for?

Would they challenge Trump and his hand-picked VP for the nomination in 2024?

Will they stand up now and speak out against the un-American and unpatriotic actions of their Party in Washington?

Or will they simply surrender to the forces now attacking them?



It's not who votes - it's who counts the votes.

Did Stalin really say that?

Whomever, we are seeing that axiom being put into practice in Arizona at this time.

This is a very dangerous proposition for a democracy.

"I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this—who will count the votes, and how."
said in 1923; Boris Bazhanov The Memoirs of Stalin's Former Secretary

Let It Be

CNN reports that 70% of Republicans do not believe Biden won the election.

70% !

That is some effective propaganda, right there!

Even though Biden won the popular vote by over 7 million votes, they do not think it was possible for him to win the Electoral College vote.

Why do 70% believe that Biden did not win?

FOX and right-wing media, primarily.

Where facts do not matter, democracy does not matter, elections do not matter.

The only thing that matters is power.

Nobody on a white horse is going to save the Republicans.

They will have to save themselves.

If they are OK with lying to their supporters and the American people, then they will not survive. They will drown in their lies. They are headed for a rude awakening.

What are they going to say when the truth comes out? And it will come out. Perhaps sooner than they think?

"Oh, I had no idea!"? "I never really thought he won the election."? "Oh, we had no idea he was so close to Putin and the Russians."? "I just didn't think it rose to the level of impeachment."?

They need to look themselves in the mirror. They need to be honest with themselves.

The lies are going to be exposed. And they will be bit in the ass.



How big of a deal was the January 6th Insurrection?

Republicans, especially Trumpsters, would have us believe it was not a "big deal" at all. It was just a peaceful "protest" that got out of hand.

They were just angry because their Leader lost the presidency to Joe Biden. It was just their way of letting off steam. In reality, they were honest, patriotic Americans.

That is what they want you to believe.

But, the reality is that people feared for their lives. Some people died. They were an out-of-control mob, who used anything and everything they could get their hands on to smash and destroy and injure others.

Most of them led comfortable lives and had very little to actually complain about. But, they were weak-minded and susceptible to the propaganda of a cult leader. They were ready to give up their lives for their freedom to be morons.

It has become obvious that they cannot accept responsibility for their crimes. They would prefer that everything be dismissed. (In fact, they would prefer that Trump come back to the White House and give them all a pardon)

The sooner they understand that America is not going to forget January 6th, and they are not going to be able to spin it on FOX or anywhere else, the better it will be for all.

The integrity and self-respect of the Republican Party are gone.

If they were ever there?

Someone so nonchalant about lying should not be in public office. Not only are they a threat to our country, they are a threat to themselves.

They have no backbone and no character. They are fearful of losing their powerful positions in the Congress and Senate. (Which is reason enough for them to not be there)

Our country would be a disgrace before the world if their viewpoints were adopted by the American people. They are weak and unprincipled sycophants to a cult leader. They have few redeeming qualities.

Most of their time is spent griping and expressing their grievances about what is wrong. They offer no solutions. They stand for nothing.

They should be retired as soon as possible.

Republicans cannot be a part of the present Republican Party unless they are willing to lie....

...and to kiss the ass of Donald Trump. They understand that is what they must do if they are to remain a part of the Trump Party.

They have to go along with the Big Lie that Trump won the election. Otherwise, they are not accepted by the base of their Party. They are outcasts.

Mitt Romney was booed at the GOP Convention in Utah. (This was the Republican that ran for President in 2012) Liz Cheney was criticized for greeting Biden with a "fist bump" at his speech before the Congress a few nights ago. No one is welcome in that Party unless they swear loyalty to the Fuhrer.

Their bonds to the Republican Party are very strong. It is very much like a cult. Even before Trump, it was very cultish. They have been programmed very heavily by right -wing radio and media. They see Democrats as "evil liberals" and could never compromise or vote with those infidels.

So they are stuck. They are Senators and Congressmen without a Party. It is either the Trump Party or nothing. There is no other choice. They are in a box.
