Antifa: 99.9% correct, or 100% correct?

Seems like their concerns and arguments have been vindicated. They warned us. They said the Proud Boys, Patriot Prayer, and the 3%ers were all Fascists and should be opposed, with force if necessary, every time they show their faces.

And Fascists they are.

Instead, they became Trumpism's useful villains, accused by paranoid, violent yahoos across America of planning schoolbus invasions of small towns most Antifa escaped as soon as they could. 41 towns full of gullible marks to con.

Not to mention "burning down everything last summer", as my Dad put it.

They stayed away from DC on 1/6. Why act when your enemy is busy hurting himself?

Asked my Trump-voting Dad if he was watching events in DC today.

I was factual, and did not provoke with my opinion: "National Guard coming to clear the Capitol of Trump Supporters."

His Response: "Not as bad as all of your friends last summer burning down everything."

Now I feel like I've failed as a son. How could I let him get so brainwashed? It is a sad day in America, and it should have been a happy one. Everything Trump touches dies, and he touched our Democracy.

Meet your Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation. Any questions?

These are the current Senators and House members who have been determining whether Trump deserves a 73 million dollar tax refund. Since 2011.

5 GOP, 4 Dems, 1 Vacancy. Any questions?

Baker County Judge Invalidates Oregon Gov. Brown's COVID-19 Emergency Orders

Source: Oregon Public Broadcasting

The state of Oregon is open for business again, but not in the way Gov. Kate Brown hoped.

A Baker County judge has invalidated Brown's restrictions on businesses and social gatherings, along with every other executive order Brown has issued under a state of emergency she ordered due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Finding that Brown exceeded her statutory authority in extending that state of emergency, Baker County Circuit Judge Matthew Shirtcliff granted a preliminary injunction Monday on more than 20 orders dating back to March 12.

The judge declined to stay the order pending the review of a higher court, meaning it took effect immediately, according to Ray Hacke, the attorney who brought the challenge on behalf of faith groups, business owners and others.

Baker County has a population of 16,000. Baker City is the biggest dot on the map between La Grande and Ontario.

UPDATE: Overruled by the State Supreme Court!

I'm sorry, but what is with the calligraphy?

On the envelope full of conspiracy BS from Guiliani to Pompeo.

Who did that? Why? Is this a common thing in DC? Is it 1830?

Anyone else want to learn the substance of the Whistleblower complaint BEFORE we count chickens?

There's plenty else to impeach on (payments to Stormy Daniels, coordination with Rusher, etc.), but I'd like some substantiation.

Who are the Dem Reps that DON'T want Impeachment?

I keep reading here that only a minority of the Democratic caucus wants Impeachment, that it's not a sure thing, that Pelosi won't allow a vote until it's sure to pass.

But WHO? Have any Democratic Congresspersons announced opposition to it? Made a public statement opposing it or expressing skepticism? Are these just inside-the-beltway whispers?

I haven't heard of any, and my Congresswoman, Pramila Jayapal, would vote for it in a heartbeat.

The Awful Truth: every President kills.

It's not negotiable. It's part of the job description when you run the American Empire, and the issue is whether you kill more or less than your predecessor. You cannot reverse course and survive in office. Just ask Carter.

Which is why it is essential to elect a person with an Ethical center to run our empire. Like Obama, who I proudly voted for, knowing he would order deaths.


Obama got handed an Empire that was killing Muslims at an unprecedented rate, in a spasm of revenge for 9/11, in 2 wars of choice that shattered multiple nations, destroyed ancient cultures, ancient artifacts, and created multiple terrorist offshoots: Boko Haram, ISIL, Al Qaeda in the Sahel, etc.

How many Muslims did Bush II kill? A million?

Obama at least made that killing as discriminate as he could, but in 8 years, he couldn't even close fucking Gitmo. The murdering was still indiscriminate, and untold numbers of innocents died, but can anyone say it was as bad as President Cheney? Whoops, sorry, I slipped. I mean Bush II.

Omar's got a point, but it's drowning in naivete.

I'm counting FIVE separate posts on Trump's Rose Garden Gaslighting Session

Many without context in the OP.

Can we have ONE "official" thread, like we would for a Debate or a SOTU?

I'm sorry, but WTF is the "Doctrine of Patriotism", again?

I'd love President Asshole to get that question at his Press Conference today.

I truly don't know what Steven Miller meant. It probably means something dumb like "Murka Furst", but is there actually a doctrine?
