Watching Carly Fiorina earlier today, discussing how Ted Cruz sold his soul, was SURREAL.

I worked at Hewlett Packard as a contractor for a few months while Fiorina was at the helm.

The mood, on any given day, was sour. There were "good people" there who did their best to keep their spirits up (and the people I had to interact with were all polite and professional with me), but I was in a sea of people who were clearly unhappy, and a lot of fingers pointed straight back to Fiorina's office.

This morning, she spoke in calm and measured tones about how the thirst to acquire and hold on to power can destroy a person, because sometimes, they become blind to everything else.

I don't think there was ever a "good" Ted Cruz who went "bad"...if there was, I missed him.

But Fiorina almost seemed genuinely saddened and hurt by Cruz's descent into full-blown Trump toadie.

It was one of those things I could understand on an intellectual level, but not an emotional one, because she and I never saw the same Ted Cruz.

Trump's "stealth moves" to sneak back on Twitter remind me of the Chris Farley ninja movie

...and I say that as someone who greatly respected Chris and enjoyed his work, BUT...

...this stuff is actually sad, like a sneaky teen attempting an end run around mom & dad. Even sadder, I've SEEN his post-presidency fatwas..."journalists" put them out there every time he squirts one out...and he literally has NOTHING NEW to say, it's all Big Lie crap and swipes at Republicans who haven't made it out to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the ring.

Twitter suspended an account on Thursday that appeared to be circumventing its ban on former President Donald Trump by posting messages he shared on his own website.

The move was more evidence that the social media behemoth will continue to take action to enforce its ban on Trump, which was instituted in his final days in office as he tried to overturn his election defeat.

On Thursday morning, a Twitter accounts with the handle “@DJTDesk” appeared on Twitter. The account’s bio section stated that the handle would be featuring “Posts copied from Save America on behalf of the 45th POTUS; Originally composed via DonaldJTrump/Desk.”

Within hours, the account was suspended.

It would be SO SWEET if the DOJ managed an Al Capone on that CosPlay POS Stone

@DavidCornDC

Roger Stone’s pardon doesn’t cover him allegedly cheating Uncle Sam out of $2 million. https://nbcnews.com/politics/justice-department/justice-department-sues-trump-ally-roger-stone-alleging-millions-unpaid-n1264372 via @nbcnews

I'm in stunned disbelief over the "outrage" surrounding Trump's donor scam

Sweet Jesus, it is APRIL, it was WELL KNOWN that he had teensy weensy tiny little hidden boxes that the MAGAt's had to uncheck (or be subject to recurring donations) WELL BEFORE THE ELECTION.

It was OUT THERE for ANYONE who wanted that knowledge.

WHY is this a "BOMBSHELL" NYT report? More appropriately, why is it a "BOMBSHELL" in APRIL 2021?

He's been this guy ALL HIS LIFE, we KNEW he was doing this LAST YEAR, people flocked to the Website and donated ANYWAY.

And the "reporting" around this sidesteps the frog versus scorpion nature of what he did and paints it as "shocking."

In what alternate reality are we shocked?

"And now, little man, I give the watch to you"...HAPPY BIRTHDAY Christopher Walken.

McConnell''s "play by my rules or I'll turn into a dick" gambit

I assume the "warning shots" he's firing about his "scorched earth" wet dream are for the benefit of anyone who hasn't followed his career up to this point.

He STILL THINKS HE IS THE MAJORITY LEADER. the "grim reaper," and that he's calling the shots.

We really, really, really need to put forth a Herculean effort in 2022 to turn out the vote and KEEP HIM as MINORITY "leader."

Finally got my $1200 "stimulus check" today.

Originally...via the IRS "Where's My Payment" site...I was told a check had been mailed.

Then I got the Trump form letter telling me my prepaid debit card had been mailed.

Neither of these things happened. I don't know if they were lost, stolen in the mail, I got nothing.

My accountant filed my taxes, and the $1080 check ($1200 minus the 2020 taxes I owed) came today.

A big deal on one hand, maybe not that big of a deal on the other, but my way of thinking is that I was every bit as entitled to that money as every other American who received it, so this feels right. It's always a good day when the things that should happen DO happen.

MAGAt PARADE! ONE guy welcomes Trump on his triumphant return to New York. ONE.



Former President Donald Trump was spotted outside Trump Tower Sunday night in his first visit back to the Big Apple since leaving office.

Trump pulled up to the Midtown skyscraper where he stays while in Manhattan just before 9 p.m.

He was seated in the backseat of a black SUV. Upon his arrival, he waved to a lone supporter who was across the street next to the media.

The NYPD last month began removing some of the barriers in front of Trump Tower, which were erected four years ago when Trump entered the White House.

The GOP crazy machine is cranked to 11.

I'm sure you've been seeing it, I don't want to post any of it because it's just too insane.

Cliffs Notes version is they're looking for ways to get Trump back into the system, and they are going to double down on every crazy talking point they have, including "cancel culture."

All I can say is that anyone who can read knows what's coming, they are absolutely telegraphing their punches, and we have two years to prepare for it and defeat it.

SO sad! Some "Fox News Insiders" are not pleased with the hiring of Kayliegh Whackadoodle.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/fox-news-insiders-rage-against-hiring-mini-goebbels-kayleigh-mcenany

“It is my distinct pleasure today to welcome Kayleigh Mcenany to the Fox family,” anchor Harris Faulkner said Tuesday morning after wrapping an on-air interview with the former Trump flack. “We will be seeing much more of her in the future.”

Fox News did not respond when asked for comment.

The addition of a known and frequent liar to the Fox News roster set off some alarms within a newsroom that has been “purged” in recent months in favor of right-wing opinion programming and content geared towards keeping a diehard MAGA audience satisfied.

“It’s truly disgusting they fired hard-working journalists who did care about facts and news reporting only to turn around and hire a mini-Goebbels whose incessant lies from the White House helped incite an insurrection on our democracy that got five people killed, including a police officer,” a Fox News insider raged to The Daily Beast. “Post-Trump Fox is quickly becoming a very scary place and quite dangerous for our democracy. It’s not even conservative news anymore. They’ve plunged into an alternate reality where extremist propaganda is the only course on the menu.”
