If the US faces another insurrection, The Murdoch family will be the cause

Fox Noise and it's collective asshole which includes Hannity, Carlson, Ingram and Gingrich are continually lying and propagandizing an already incredibly ignorant audience who will just go into a chaotic frenzy if anyone one of their heroes have to face justice. They talked over an official hearing with as much BS as Barr said trump was spreading. Gingrich keeps trying to save his own turkey neck by following his old playbook which has been outdated for 20 years. Only the truly gullible will continue to fall for it.

'How dare you?': Louie Gohmert has emotional outburst at gun bill hearing

Texas Representative Louie Gohmert had an emotional outburst after Democratic representatives suggested Republicans’ opposition to new restrictions on firearm ownership put them on the side of the mass killers who’ve perpetrated shootings in several American cities over the last month.


Mr Gohmert, a Texas Republican, said on Thursday it was “an outrage” that his colleagues would imply Republicans “must be here for the gunmen” during a House Judiciary Committee markup of legislation to raise the age at which Americans can purchase high-powered military-style rifles from 18 to 21.

Sitting in his home office and appearing at the markup remotely, he became visibly agitated as he railed against his Democratic colleagues.

“How dare you — you think we don’t have hearts? It’s just that when we look at the things that you're doing, and you're trying to do to America, we've seen the carnage,” he said, segueing into a common GOP trope which blames Democratic mayors in cities with large Black populations for the prevalence of gun violence there.

“Democrats control the major cities that have the worst murder rates — your ideas have been shown to get people killed,” he said as he began to accuse Democrats of being on the side of those who commit acts of violence in jurisdictions under their control.

“You here for the murderers, the murderers in Chicago, in Philadelphia in these other major cities, because you're wanting to do nationally, what is being done by Democrats in those big cities,” he said, adding that he and his GOP colleagues “care deeply” about the lives of victims of violence in those cities and calling Democrats “arrogant people” who were “attributing murder to those of us that want to do things to stop it” because — in his view — Democratic leaders in those cities are responsible for those murders.

Just when you thought republicans couldn't get any more vile - this a$$hole proves me wrong. Gohmert is a lunatic.

So can we call all elections where a republican wins fraudulent?

Every time they win something just claim voter fraud and launch 50 investigations and 100 lawsuits. Isn't that their strategy? Can we set up a PAC for this? LOL

Texas Calls for Power Conservation After Six Generators Fail

Source: Bloomberg News

The Texas grid operator called on residents to conserve energy Friday after six generation facilities tripped offline amid hot weather, prompting power prices to spike.

The power-plant failures resulted in a loss of about 2,900 megawatts of electricity, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas said in an email statement Friday. That’s enough power for about 580,000 homes and businesses. Natural-gas fired plants make up all of the generation that failed, an Ercot spokesman said.

The Texas grid is being stressed by high heat in a potential preview of peak summertime demand. This summer will test whether Ercot has made sufficient changes to reinforce a system that experienced cascading power-plant failures and deadly blackouts during a historic freeze in early 2021.

On Thursday, the Public Utility Commission of Texas expressed concern that generators haven’t had enough time to perform seasonal maintenance ahead of summer. The risk: summertime maintenance amid stronger heat can lead to supply shortages and potentially rolling blackouts.

Calling all legitimate news organizations!!!!

If and when the new Twitter decides to let back on the orange buffoon and his legions of moronic lying conspiracy theorists, please do not pay them any attention. Do not, report, retweet, or give credence to any of these idiots. If that can be done, the new twitter will have less of an impact on the destruction of our democracy. Of course, I don't expect illegitimate organizations that pretend to be news channels, like Fox and Infowars to help out in this endeavor.

I hope our Federal Government is keeping a close watch on Putin's American assets

Like, trump. The CIA and FBI need to make sure Putin isn't trying to attack us from within with the help of residents of the U.S. ready to do his bidding -whether they are from Russia or not.

Media needs to stop the BS about Gas prices, supply chain, blah blah blah

People are dying for no reason. That should override their stupid media click bait crap about the hits on our economy. We need to bite the bullet and deal with any fallout from the Russian invasions. The more we can endure the more lives might be saved. Any media company whining about gas prices while a sovereign country is undergoing an unprovoked attack from a huge bully doesn't deserve to be heard - period. Also, any oil company who is inflating prices unnecessarily and trying to maximize profits at this moment doesn't deserve our business any longer, now or after the conflict is over.

Heard announcement this morning there are republicans calling for Biden to send support to Ukraine

Are they kidding me? The same morons who blindly supported that orange buffoon and his deliberate attempt to weaken our position in Ukraine for his BFF Putin? Do these idiots think no one remembers? Of course, that's just as stupid as the repub senators or congressmen taking credit for the aid being sent to their districts, AFTER they voted against every effort. As Mike Malloy would say, "Did I say today how much I hate these people?"

To MSNBC: Please stop showing pictures of trump and family

I usually watch MSNBC if I am going to watch a news/commentary at all but I can hardly tolerate the pictures they keep flashing of trump and his minions (family are minions too). Their images disgust me. Add to that Bill Barr and Rudy Guliani. They are reprehensible human beings that don't need to be seen to be discussed. Every time they show their pictures I have to reach for a barf bag. Next time show a picture of a sloth with a trump wig. At least that would give some amusement to an otherwise dismal situation.

Manchin and Sinema need a clue

Manchin and Sinema as well as any Republican with half a brain need to pass voting rights legislation so we can purge our government of insurrectionists. They forget to realize that the reason why they aren't receiving death threats and bloody horse heads is because Democrats are civilized. Obviously they would like to promote this white supremacists civil war being threatened or they would pass this legislation. They don't see that sooner or later it will come around to them.
