Who among us hasn't purchased burner phones?

Who among us hasn't purchased burner phones and paid for them with cash?

I mean sometimes people, like Congressmen and presidential staff, don't have a good, available, secretive, means to communicate with persons of interest.

Who among us hasn't purchased a burner phone to call an enemy of ours to threaten him and his family and then throw the phone away?

If a tree falls in the forest, IMO, if no one records it, it doesn't make a sound.

John Durham - special counsel

Bill Barr appointed John Durham to look into the Russia investigation. What information did Barr have to warrant the appointment? He didn't have any, IMO, it was all cover for Trump. Not only did Barr appoint Durham but he put in guardrails so that Durham couldn't be dismissed. John Durham is still getting paid to dig up dirt against our president.

The point of my post is that there are volumes of evidence already out there that warrant Merrick Garland to appoint a similar special counsel to look into the attacks on our election and attacks on our democracy. The special cousel would be an important step in preserving our democracy. If the GQP wins the House the select committee goes away. If the GQP wins the House a special counsel does not go away.

Do it General Garland.

Most ransacked office on 1/6.

According to Jon Karl's book it was interesting which office was the most ransacked during the coup attempt. Remember that the internet was filled with diagrams of the Capitol pre coup attempt. It was assumed that the diagrams were used to find the escape routes, but was that the real reason? The most ransacked office the day of the failed coup was the Parlementarian's office where the Electoral college ballots would have been stored. Surprise. When people were being evacuated a wise staffer for the Parlementarian grabbed the ballots and they remained where she was sequestered. Had the traitors gotten their hands on those ballots who knows what the outcome would have been. Add another quick thinking staffer to the list of people who saved our democracy that awful day, another hero.

Election of Senators,

I read the Constitution and it doesn't say that Senators have to be elected by popular vote, if you catch my drift. What if states controlled by the GQP came up with an Electoral college-type election where districts or counties were given 1 vote for Senator based on the popular vote? I see nothing in the Constitution that would prevent that from happening. The GQP Senate candidate would certainly win the popular vote in the most districts and/or counties in most states.

Top that off with the Nazi SC where justices have already expressed an opinion as to the absolute power of states to decide how to run their elections. Pretty damn scary thought.

1/6 insurrectionists held in DC jail

The vast majority of the people who attempted a coup on our government are not in the DC jail, they are out on bail. The less than 40 people who are detained in jail are the worst of the worst, the people who attacked and beat cops. The vast majority of people in the DC jail are black people, that is simply a fact. The insurrectionists who are in jail are White Supremacists. Do I have to explain why it was decided not to mix White Supremacists with black people in a prison? The White Supremacists were held in their separate area of prison, that is not a kooky idea but a fact, alert on that.

This is from a Politico article from 4/19/2021 written by Kyle Cheney, Andrew Desiderio, and Josh Gerstein.

"Insurrection detainees are not completely isolated from the outside world. While in their cells, they have access to tablet computers they can use to trade messages with friends and family members. They can also see other accused rioters during the one hour a day that they are given outside their cell, although it is also their only opportunity for a shower, exercise and contact with their attorneys."

Yes, they can speak with their fellow seditionists while in prison and yes it is not a kooky idea on my part to surmise that the worst of the worst seditionists may be plotting their next violent attack on our democracy.

For those of you who believe that is a kooky idea on my part, you are the problem, you are befriending the seditionists, you are minimizing what happened on 1/6 and is still ongoing. If you think that the 1/6 insurrection ended on 1/6 that is a scary, kooky idea. Alert on that.

Looks like Democrats will censure Gosar,

the punishment is that Gosar has to stand in the well of the House chamber and listen to the tongue lashing that Speaker Pelosi will lay on him. Wonder if any GQPers will join in? Stupid question.

Time Frame For Release Of Trump's Documents.

I took a break to ride my bike for an hour and a half, sat down and turned the TV on. (I never watch morning or early afternoon cable news.) A legal lady was on, CNN I think, she was asked if the Appeals court rules to release the documents on Nov. 30th, how long will it take for the Supreme Court to take up the matter? She responded that unless the SC expedites the case it will go well into 2022.

Sorry for the doom and gloom.

Who should replace Rachel next year?

Reported she is leaving next year. My choice is Mehdi Hasan. He is the closest person to Rachel's style, a truth teller.

Other people who have been thrown out there to replace Rachel means I have 1 less cable news hour to watch. Get the list of possibilities being thrown out there; Joe Scum or Mika, Both siderism's Ari Melber, Michelle Wallace but she wants to spend nights with her kids.

I am pretty sure that msnbc will turn further to the right than it already is.

I guess Keith Olbermann is out of the question?

Merrick Garland needs to be fired.

Coup plotter Steve Bannon is out on his soap box leading the ongoing insurrection. If it takes this long to make a decision about low hanging fruit Steve Bannon why bother subpoenaing people who were in the Trump administration? If Garland ever decides to send Bannon before a grand jury, that is just step 1. If the grand jury convicts Bannon he still must go before a jury trial which he will assuredly appeal all the way to the Nazi Supreme Court. How long will that take?

The time is long passed for people to keep telling me to be patient. Trump is winning, his tactic is to delay until the GQP takes back the House and maybe the Senate. The only way to stop Trump from running again in 2024 is to prosecute him, prosecute him, and then prosecute him some more.

High school and college wrestling has started, I may just tune out politics and enjoy myself. I get bashed by Democrats here anyway so why endure the aggravation. I baby sat my 8 year old grandson all of last week, I sent him to his first wrestling practice, helped him study and play, had a blast, didn't tune in to one bit of politics. I come back to DU and it's the same ole same ole, nothing about Bannon, nothing about prosecuting Trump and his seditionists.

If it takes this long for Bannon then the select committee is going to have to bypass Garland and go for inherent contempt and lock up people who refuse subpoenas or who refuse to testify.

If Trump runs and wins in 2024 he won't just get 4 more years.

Follow the Money - DOJ

We know one of the failings of the Mueller investigation, a big failing, was that it didn't follow the money. We have heard a lot of talk about the select committee needs to follow the money to find out who was behind the insurrection. The select committee doesn't have the clout to follow the money, sorry, because people just put off being subpoenaed, the DOJ needs to do it, yesterday.

I just went to Raw Story, not because of its prize journalism, but because it has late breaking news. Raw Story is reporting that we know who funded the vast majority of the insurrection, Event Strategies. Congressmen, the Trump campaign pay money to Event Strategies, to this day. The Trump campaign also paid money to nearly 60 people the day after the insurrection, for travel expenses, many of whom were never on Trump's payroll.

Freaking reporters are the people who are digging up the dirt on the insurrection, it would be a lot easier if DOJ would be doing the digging. Maybe they are I am told. Maybe they aren't I say. It's only our democracy at stake.

Maybe this article I just read at Raw Story is just for sensationalism to get hits, maybe it isn't.

Someone with clout needs to follow the money, a special prosecutor or the FBI, or the insurrection only grows. People in Congress, like Mo Brooks, are still paying money to Event Strategies. Why? Why? Why?
