"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.”

Trump at CPAC sealed the deal, there really IS no turning back.

Of course, you could say January 6th was the deal breaker, or McConnell saying he'd "certainly" support Trump as the candidate in 2024.

Mission Accomplished, Cheetolini. We now have the Democratic Party, and the Party of Trump. The Republican Party no longer exists, and the majority of Congress members who are NOT on the "Trump train" are STILL top frigging terrified to stand up and purge him.

REGARDLESS of whether he runs, it will be Biden (if he chooses to run for a second term) versus Trumpism.

And my feeling is that the voters who turned out in 2020 will turn out again, and this time they'll bring friends. America knows what this clown, in person or by proxy, would do in the Oval Office. It's not going to happen.

I think it's safe to say that we can retire the "unity" concept

1). The Neera Tanden confirmation...we can't possibly confirm someone who sent "mean tweets"

2). Mike Lee at the Merrick Garland hearing, grilling him...unsuccessfully...about Anti-Semitism

3). Mitch McConnell saying that he's "sure Americans would like a $1400 check, but they don't know what's in the bill," and it's his duty to block it

We need to build our House and Senate majorities to the point where we aren't holding our breath over how Joe Manchin will vote.

If I saw any evidence of an attempt at "unity" on the Republicans' part, I'd acknowledge it.

My heart is breaking over the Supreme Court's denial of Velveeta Khrushchev's "emergency appeal."

Pete Williams on MSNBC:

"it means he's out of office. Remember, he tried once before when he was in the White House saying, 'I'm president, you can't trust me, I'm immune from the criminal process, including grand jury subpoenas.' And the Supreme Court rejected that argument by a vote of 7 to 2. Both the two Trump appointees on the court at the time voted with the majority. So, the president's lawyers went back to the court and said, 'okay, the problem with the subpoena is it's too broad. It's too much. Well, they lost in the trial court. They lost in the court of appeals. They went to the Supreme Court last October with an emergency appeal, saying please stop this until we can get up there and argue the case on the merits."

"And finally today, the Supreme Court said 'nope, we're denying this emergency application,'" Williams continued. "So it's over. The president is out of legal options to try to stop this. Remember, what the grand jury wants is about eight or are nine years of the president's corporation and personal tax returns from his accountants. The accountants already said we will do whatever the courts say so expect this material to be turned over within a matter of days. We don't know exactly what side Cy Vance investigated, whether he understated his assets in order to invade taxes and possible insurance fraud, but now it's over. This material has to be turned over."

We need to ignore Pilgrimages to Mar-a-Lago and pursue OUR agenda with ferocity and determination.

I AM ALREADY sick of the headlines.

-> Kevin McCarthy goes to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the ring

-> Lindsey Graham goes to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the ring and plead with Trump to make nice with McConnell

->Gaetz & Boebert head to Mar-a-Lago for fundraiser and will most likely also kiss the ring while they are there

McConnell's saying he doesn't care what the fuck ANY Republican "believes" as long as they are "electible," because the Senate Minority Leader thing is killing him. Thoughts and prayers!

We have TWO YEARS to shatter ALL of those "dreams." If OUR burning desire is for McConnell to REMAIN "Senate Minority Leader" is AS STRONG or STRONGER than HIS desire to get back his title, it will be Turtle Soup Part II in 2022.

We need to hold on to the same determination we had in November for the next two years and then ACT on it.

In the meantime, FUCK Trump, FUCK McConnell, FUCK Cruz, FUCK Gaetz, FUCK Boebert, FUCK Greene, FUCK 'EM ALL.

The media is showing an unhealthy fascination for the machinations of McConnell, Trump, and Republicans in general. It's clickbait. And I'm not having any part of it. I want to add seats to the House and Senate in 2022 and have the last two years of President Biden's first term become...to quote that noted political analyst Samuel L Jackson..."a mushroom cloud laying motherfucker."

We can DO this. We NEED to do this.

Let's fucking DO this.
