Play the tape forward

Let's do a thought exercise. We're now in September/October. The contents of the orange bloat's safe prove very valuable evidence of serious crimes, perhaps espionage conducted by the orange bloat. He's going down. It's clear he was so desperate for cash that he sold classified information to hostile foreign entities. The FBI has the goods on treason, espionage, massive crimes against America, even worse than the insurrection to steal power.

The corrupt GQP can't defend THAT, can they? Selling America's classified material to hostile foreign governments for cash? How can anyone in their right mind think that's OK?

But imagine also if the contents of the safe included blackmail material on the corrupt GQP. The DOJ is about to blow open massive criminality on an unprecedented scale, conducted by the Senate minority leader, the House minority leader, several congressmen and several senators. They were OK as long as that material was kept securely in that safe. But now it's about to be known to all of America and the world.

Would they sell him out to make deals to save their asses? Or would they go down with him?

Please stop calling this a "raid."

A raid is when they bust doors down and throw everyone in handcuffs while they search. This wans't that.

Besides, when you use the word raid, you are echoing what the orange fuck said, to maximize his poor pitiful me, the FBI is raiding me schtick. Don't use his words.

It was a well-executed search authorized by a federal warrant signed off by the highest levels of the FBI and DOJ and a trump-appointed federal judge.

It wasn't a raid.

"Documents were seized."

That's what's being reported this morning.

So they collected evidence. Of what? What did they find in the safe?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Look who is not talking

Feels damn good to have a big legislative win, doesn't it?

Sure, it's gotta pass the House before Biden can sign it, but the biggest hurdles - Manchin and Sinema - have been overcome.

We deserve to feel good about this.

And fuck the republican whining!

Elections matter

Does anyone question that after today's historic vote?

Think about how much more we could have gotten done if we had enough of a majority in the Senate so that Manchin and Sinema are irrelevant. Imagine how we can protect our right to vote, and protect women's right to make their own decisions about their own bodies.

ELECTIONS MATTER.

Abortion rights had a resounding win last night in Kansas, where voters overwhelmingly rejected a measure that would have removed abortion protections from the state constitution. In addition to being an incalculable victory for the people of Kansas, the referendum results make plain what feminists have been screaming for decades: Abortion is a winning issue.

It’s time to start treating it like one.

From ‘safe, legal and rare’ to framing abortion as a tragic choice rather than an essential freedom—Democrats have tiptoed around abortion rights for far too long. (Even last night, in the wake of a massive triumph, President Joe Biden’s tweet in response to the vote didn’t include the word ‘abortion’.)

There is no benefit in being tentative. Apologetic messaging certainly didn’t protect Roe, and it ceded the most important advantage we have: The moral high ground. After all, we aren’t the people who want to force 10 year-olds to give birth, we aren’t making devastated women carry dead and dying fetuses, and we aren’t the ones mandating rape victims sign affidavits or ‘prove’ their attack before being allowed basic care.

Forcing someone to be pregnant when they don’t want to be is cruel, and voters know it: Six-in-ten Americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, and a whopping 85% of Americans want abortion legal at least in some circumstances. The extreme abortion bans going into effect across the country don’t reflect what voters actually want.

There’s a reason Kansas anti-abortion groups made the referendum language as confusing as possible, and why they tried to trick voters with misleading text messages, telling people to “Vote YES to protect women’s health.” (A ‘yes’ vote would remove abortion protections.)

Conservatives know that banning abortion is a losing issue.

It's worth reading the whole thing (not very long). She gets at what I've said for a long time: we were suckered into using the enemy's language. "Safe, legal, and rare" was always bullshit, and it implies that there's something terribly wrong with a woman deciding to not be pregnant. Women have the right NOT to be pregnant if they won't want to be because we OWN our own bodies.

This is obviously a winning issue and we need to keep it in the forefront.

Jan. 6 text messages wiped from phones of key Trump Pentagon officials

Jan. 6 text messages wiped from phones of key Trump Pentagon officials

The Defense Department wiped the phones of top departing DOD and Army officials at the end of the Trump administration, deleting any texts from key witnesses to events surrounding the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol, according to court filings.

The acknowledgment that the phones from the Pentagon officials had been wiped was first revealed in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit American Oversight brought against the Defense Department and the Army. The watchdog group is seeking January 6 records from former acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller, former chief of staff Kash Patel, and former Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy, among other prominent Pentagon officials – having filed initial FOIA requests just a few days after the Capitol attack.

Miller, Patel and McCarthy have all been viewed as crucial witnesses for understanding government’s response to the January 6 Capitol assault and former President Donald Trump’s reaction to the breach. All three were involved in the Defense Department’s response to sending National Guard troops to the US Capitol as the riot was unfolding. There is no suggestion that the officials themselves erased the records.

The government’s assertion in the filings that the officials’ text messages from that day were not preserved is the latest blow to the efforts to bring transparency to the events of January 6. It comes as the Department of Homeland Security is also under fire for the apparent loss of messages from the Secret Service that day.

Miller declined to comment. Patel and McCarthy did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The Pentagon and the Army also did not respond to requests for comment.

American Oversight is now calling for a “cross-agency investigation” by the Justice Department to investigate destruction of the materials.
