Pelosi told Milley Trump should have been 'arrested on the spot' for inciting Jan. 6 insurrection.



Pelosi told top general Trump should have been ‘arrested on the spot’ for inciting Capitol insurrection, new book says

by Dan Mangan
CNBC, September 14, 2021

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the top U.S. Army general that then-President Donald Trump was a “dictator” who “should have been arrested on the spot” after what she called his coup attempt to remain in the White House by inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, a new book reveals.

Pelosi also said during a phone call in January with Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mike Milley that “the Republicans have blood on their hands” for enabling Trump’s delusions about his ability to retain the presidency, the book says.

“But it is a sad state of affairs for our country that we’ve been taken over by a dictator who used force against another branch of government,” Pelosi, a California Democrat, told Milley during the call several days after the riot, according to “Peril,” a new book by Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

FTR: I agree with Madame Speaker.

Melanie: Doomed. Dismissive. Defeated. Detached.

Former aide sees Melania Trump as 'the doomed French queen': book



BY DOMINICK MASTRANGELO
The Hill - 09/13/21

A former top aide reportedly describes former first lady Melania Trump as "the doomed French queen" in a new book set to be released next month.

Stephanie Grisham, who served as former President Trump's press sectary and was a leading aide to the former first lady, writes that she now sees Melania as “the doomed French queen. Dismissive. Defeated. Detached," according to excerpts of her book obtained by Politico.

Grisham reportedly writes that she texted Melania Trump during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by her husband's supporters and asked her: “Do you want to tweet that peaceful protests are the right of every American, but there is no place for lawlessness and violence?”

“No," the former first lady replied, Grisham revealed in the book, in which she relays how Melania Trump shared her husband's view that the 2020 presidential election was not conducted legitimately and said that “something bad happened."

Let them eat cake.

Lot of money in the oil.


Great saying, that!

Science flies you to the moon.
Religion flies you into buildings.


Thing is, without a cosmos, there’s none of any of that: moon, buildings, religion, science, flying.

Answer where the universe came from and I might side with the materialists. Otherwise I take both reason and philosophy to heart and keep my mind open.

Why are Americans paying $32m every hour for wars since 9/11?

was the sole member of Congress to vote against the war in Afghanistan. Congress has yet to stand up against endless militarism


Barbara Lee
Sept. 9, 2021

Excerpt…

Twenty years on, the US and the world are much worse off for this failure of leadership. It is time to turn the page on two decades of endless war with a vague and ever-shifting mission. While this begins with removing the 2001 and 2002 authorizations for use of military force from the law books, it will also require decisive changes in our foreign policy decision processes and resource allocation.

Shortly after the attacks, President Bush sent a 60-word blank check to Congress that would give him or any other president the authority to wage war against enemies of their choosing. It was a sweeping resolution known as the 2001 authorization for use of military force, or the 2001 AUMF. I was the lone vote in Congress against the authorization because I feared it was too broad, giving the president the open-ended power to use military force anywhere, against anyone.

The human cost has been high: an untold number of civilian casualties overseas, two generations of American soldiers sent to fight without any clear objective or oversight and thousands of our troops and other personnel killed, wounded and traumatized in action.

The Afghanistan war alone has cost more than $2.6tn taxpayer dollars and killed more than 238,000 individuals. The 2002 AUMF, which authorized war against Iraq based on fabricated claims of weapons of mass destruction, has cost $1.9tn and killed an estimated 288,000. Together, these two AUMFs have been used by three successive presidents to engage in war in at least seven countries – from Yemen to Libya to Niger – against a continually growing list of adversaries that Congress never foresaw or intended. The Bush, Obama and Trump administrations have further identified to Congress combat-ready counter-terrorism deployments to at least 14 additional countries, indicating that the AUMFs could justify armed combat in those places as well. Only 56 current members of the House and 16 senators were present at the 2001 vote, making a mockery of the constitutional principle that only the people’s elected representatives in Congress can send our country to war.

The results today are a perpetual state of war and an ever-expanding military-industrial complex that consumes a greater and greater amount of our resources every year. Pentagon spending since 9/11 (adjusted for inflation) has increased by almost 50%. Each hour, taxpayers are paying $32m for the total cost of wars since 2001, and these wars have not made Americans safer or brought democracy or stability to the Middle East. To the contrary, they have further destabilized the region and show no sign of ending or achieving any of the long-ago stated goals.

GOP Sends Out Fake Pence Email Calling 2020 Election 'Contested Takeover,' Then Apologizes

Source: Newsweek

The National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC) sent out a fundraising email calling the 2020 election a "contested takeover," which it signed with former Vice President Mike Pence's name—but he didn't approve the message.

Pence refused to cave to former President Donald Trump's pressure to not formally certify the official election results on January 6, the day the U.S. Capitol was assaulted. The former vice president went on to attend President Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20. In June, Pence said he was "proud" to have certified the official election results early on the morning of January 7.

But on Thursday the NRSC, which works to elect Republicans to the Senate, sent out an email in which Pence appeared to be suggesting that he did not believe the 2020 election results were valid. "Since their contested takeover, the Biden-Harris administration has unleashed a tidal wave of Left-wing policies that threaten to wipe out the progress we made for a safer, more prosperous, more secure America," the email said. Punchbowl News first reported on the email.

The email message was a clear departure from Pence's previous position on the 2020 election. An NRSC spokesperson later admitted that the former vice president had not approved the email and apologized.
