We are still in trouble.

Both these last witnesses testified that this next election cycle is at risk. It's not like we don't know or feel that. We all do. But these guys are like an extra warning that we should heed.

I hope that our Government continues after the hearings are completed to protect our processes and resist this extra threat that tRump The Orange continues to exert over our democracy.

One thing that alarms me is the fact that I see almost continuous public pleas by the Repubs to join them. I do not see Democratic efforts, although one could say that the J6 Committee hearings constitutes that effort. Still, we need more of a presence against Repubs, fascism, and the attacks on our Country.

Just a Russian observation.

I've been reading these new Russian warnings. Seems like there were a slew of them reported. SOS.

Then there was the report that Ukraine raised its flag back on Snake Island. Then, Russia says it bombed the island.

Remember when Ukraine drove Russia off the island? And, then Russia claimed their leaving was a goodwill gesture aimed at allowing food access.

But, now they're bombing again? What happened to that goodwill gesture? Russia lies. They got their asses kicked off the island. That's what the truth is there.

The Big Lie

What amazes me is how well that concept in regards to basic psychology really works. You know, the one which teaches that if you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. Or, however that goes. Just lie your ass off, and people will believe the lie.

There is not ONE SHRED OF PROOF that the election was stolen from Trump in any meaningful way. Two fraudulent voters does not change the outcome of an election in which millions and millions vote against you.

What galls me is hearing adults who should know better repeat and refer to the Big Lie as if it has a credible basis or is fundamentally debatable. It is not debatable because it is not the truth, but a made up lie without foundation. It was made up by Trump et al to gin up opposition to the truth, that he LOST the election. He used the Big Lie to incite a riot to cover up the fact that he was trying to commit a coup against our democracy.

Those that still believe the Big Lie are lost in their need for a daddy figure, some emotional response and need to follow a threatening figure from which they derive a sense of power. It all boils down to self image, and who can give them that sense of belonging they seek.

But, the Big Lie is still just a lie. No one wronged Trump. He gained the most powerful position on the planet, and instead of even trying to do something positive, he continued with what he knows best, being a mobster, grifting, and bullying. His background is verifiable, his past malfeasance in business was recorded by history, and he is a poison to the body politic and doesn't deserve any consideration as a candidate for leadership of the country. If we allow this POS to gain power again, he will finish tearing up the Constitution and use it for toilet paper on his gold throne.

Tomorrow is our Independence Day. It belongs to us and those that died for it. It does not belong to the big, fat, lying bone spurs asshole who would like to sort us into boxes of useful to him, and not useful to him. Happy Fourth, America, and don't you let it get to you. We know the difference between the Truth and a lie.

Why am I getting

If Donald Trump announces plans to run for President on the Fourth

then I will vomit.

I must say, it won't surprise me. He is very theatrical, from trying to impress from in front of the Presidential monuments (Mount Rushmore) to his stunt of driving around the hospital while he was being treated with medical treatments that only he could get. But, that doesn't mean I will be amused.

He might be doing it because of timing, you know, getting ahead of others. This would be because of the recent talk that he will not be welcome to a party candidacy. Maybe because of DeSantis.

Or, and IMO most probable, he has it in his head that he can't be indicted if he is running for President. He is coming off the heels of a devastating hearing enumerating numerous criminal acts from a credible witness. He would probably like to be able to spin it that he is being harassed due to some mythical holy state of candidacy. Maybe he can convince DOJ that to indict him would be some kind of travesty against tradition.

We have all been through this before, during the two impeachment hearings. It is kind of settled that, technically, he can be prosecuted while in office. This is post term, he is being investigated and found out, and there is that. I don't know what other position he could run for in Midterms; I think it is too late for that. So, if he announces for the Presidency, there will be the inevitable "I am President, You can't imprison me now" argument. Or, "I am running for the Presidency, you can't touch me now." And, then his Personal Supreme Court can legislate in his favor. How, I don't know, but that hasn't stopped them from twisting our system.

Our system allows any criminal to run for the Presidency, even from a jail cell. That is the truth. So, if he announces, that is his right, and he can spend Republican donor money on it. If we got lucky enough to convict him, we would probably have to send him to Gitmo, just to make it really hard to run a campaign from there.

I dunno about you, but I think an indictment of at least Donald Trump is in order. If DOJ fails to act for whatever reason, then I personally will feel that there is no more justice of any kind left in our system.

It seems like it is going to be all on Garland. I like quiet, understated heroes that do their duty without fuss. So far, all is well. But then, that's what I thought about the Mueller Report.

I want to see DOJ kick Donald's rotten ass, not just Georgia, although I appreciate all Georgia Peaches and am grateful that pursuit of that angle is ongoing. But, we have to indict Trump as a nation. His fall guys notwithstanding, it will not work if he gets to throw them under the buses and walk away whistling.

Please, G-d, don't inflict my country with Trump as President. Not again, never again, no more. Amen.

If he announces, we'll just have to suck it up and laugh it off. I wouldn't put it past Red States to elect a criminal as their President. We just have to do something NOW and not let it get that bad again. Please, Dems, do something.

"Finish Line" sung by Rita Ora

This keeps popping up, and it's such a good video:

Deliver a subpoena to Clarence Thomas

I want to see if he will deny the validity of the authority of the J6 to issue subpoenas. I want to see if he will duck out and refuse to testify. I want to see if he can get another Justice to be his personal attorney.

We need to ask him what he knew about the coup and what his wife was doing. Let's see if he throws her under the bus. I'm so pissed.

Trump et al are traitors, every last one.

Ginni Thomas is a traitor.

I want her investigated for that attempted coup, and the support for that Trump pathway to remaining in power after he LOST THE ELECTION. Why should she get to avoid prosecution and consequences when she used her position as the wife of a SC Justice to influence those who could cause a substitution of electors in favor of Trump? This was one part of the Fake Electors pathway to take over our government.

Who are we kidding? We almost lost our country. She helped put us through that debacle, and she should be prosecuted and not sheltered. People DIED during that time.

Do we honestly think that Ginni Thomas did NOT talk to her hubby during this time about what she was doing?? Do you think that he did not KNOW what was going on?

She better get a subpoena, because I don't think that she will actually agree to talk with the Committee. She's paying lip service to the idea. She won't, because she is connected through the frickin SC to a coup attempt. Does anyone, anywhere, believe that she kept that a secret from Clarence Thomas, SCJ??

Doesn't Clarence have some legal and moral duty to disclose such a threat to DOJ? The newly elected President? To Roberts??

I dunno about you, but I'm just done contriving scenarios where they have plausible deniability for what they have done. I don't believe that Thomas didn't know they were trying to substitute electors. He needs to resign or be impeached. She needs to be indicted. Trump managed to eff up our Court. This is serious.

Everything Trump touches dies, and this Court is dead to me. No decision they make from here on in will mean a damned thing. They are not scions of a long tradition in law; they are cheap, swill drinking, caricatures of a now dead process of applying learned, experienced knowledge to the decisions that govern us all. I have no further respect for their tradition.

#resignclarence

I don't want to hear any more

about the cutesy ways the nominees were able to dodge a full disclosure of their true aims and opinions re: Roe v. Wade. THEY LIED. THEY ARE LIARS.

We have liars on the SC of the United States.

We can't forget

the fact that the J6 Committee has presented us with a whole lotta facts about the attempted coup on our Government.

The timing of this abysmal SC decision is suspicious. All of our outrage is now centered on the SC. But, we must look not to the left nor the right, but straight ahead in convicting those responsible for the attempted coup. From there, after cleaning out the pus, we can revisit the issues of what horrendous decision making this Court is doing.

They will continue to quickly decide other various issues of which we will not be happy. Still, we have to convict Trump et al, otherwise none of it can be defensible. We need to get rid of the influence the GOP currently has against us.

I will not let civil rights just go to the influence of these other dastardly groups who only care about themselves and their own weak, narrow opinions. However, we need to indict and arrest Trump. If we want to "get even" for this SC decision on guns and abortion, then, focus on getting Trump et al.
