  1. sam’s take on GOPer goobers last night

    It’s been 6 months since Donald Trump was voted out of office. But while prominent party member Matt Gaetz is being investigated for ACTUAL crimes, Republicans are busy vilifying those in the party who failed to support Trump! Which begs the question…WTF?

  2. but back to one of the only two GOPer rep. truthtellers telling truth about the big liar- and in writing yet!

    Opinion | Liz Cheney op-ed: The GOP is at a turning point. History is watching us. – The Washington Post

    In public statements again this week, former president Donald Trump has repeated his claims that the 2020 election was a fraud and was stolen. His message: I am still the rightful president, and President Biden is illegitimate. Trump repeats these words now with full knowledge that exactly this type of language provoked violence on Jan. 6. And, as the Justice Department and multiple federal judges have suggested, there is good reason to believe that Trump’s language can provoke violence again. Trump is seeking to unravel critical elements of our constitutional structure that make democracy work — confidence in the result of elections and the rule of law. No other American president has ever done this.
    The Republican Party is at a turning point, and Republicans must decide whether we are going to choose truth and fidelity to the Constitution. In the immediate wake of the violence of Jan. 6, almost all of us knew the gravity and the cause of what had just happened — we had witnessed it firsthand.
    First, support the ongoing Justice Department criminal investigations of the Jan. 6 attack. Those investigations must be comprehensive and objective; neither the White House nor any member of Congress should interfere.
    Second, we must support a parallel bipartisan review by a commission with subpoena power to seek and find facts; it will describe for all Americans what happened. This is critical to defeat the misinformation and nonsense circulating in the press and on social media. No currently serving member of Congress — with an eye to the upcoming election cycle — should participate. We should appoint former officials, members of the judiciary and other prominent Americans who can be objective, just as we did after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The commission should be focused on the Jan. 6 attacks.
    Finally, we Republicans need to stand for genuinely conservative principles, and steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic Trump cult of personality.
    History is watching. Our children are watching. We must be brave enough to defend the basic principles that underpin and protect our freedom and our democratic process. I am committed to doing that, no matter what the short-term political consequences might be.

  3. meanwhile, back in the other world – the real world – and the ongoing saga of Bidenhood


  4. Hawley is as dangerous to democracy as they come.  
    They are going hard on Liz so that none of the other goose-steppers who may be on the fence break rank. 

  5. Watching the Liz saga reminded me of a conversation from the late 80s when I told a deeply conservative acquaintance that Rush Limbaugh was a racist.  He told me that I just didn’t get the “jokes”.  He didn’t get just how evil a growth that had infested the GOP dating from the Dixiecrat move to the party had become. 

    We are now seeing the outcome as the weeds have overgrown anything decent that still remains until even any semblance of fiscal and public conservatism is destroyed in its wake.


  6. he is among the tiny group of GOPer truthtellers about the big Liar; but mitch yesterday told another truth, a very unwelcome one: One-hundred percent of my focus is on stopping this new administration”

    here’s chris cuomo about it last night plus his interview with joe manchin on what to do about it

  7. some of the latter half of the above cuomo video is about rudy and his lies in re ukraine.  worth watching what was said by a former Ukrainian prez advisor.

  8. BTW, apologies for the inept play on the thread title messing with “all creatures great and small” but have just seen the new version of the masterpiece series of james heriot’s story and been wondering how the trail grades it in comparison to the original series and to the book on which they both were based. 

    one thing it is better at is the magnificent scenery.

    I love the new series as I did the original series and the books.  There are differences that I think are the result of modern life allowing for slightly more graphic or just expansive story lines that could only be hinted at in the original books from the early 70s. 


  10. Cyber Ninjas certainly strikes me as very Trumpian organization to do the AZ recount – Completely inexperienced, utterly incompetent and thoroughly biased (not to mention secretive).  Hmmm, I wonder what the (predetermined) outcome of the audit will be?

  11. DOJ to cyber ninjer goobers:
    “Hope you boys are taking real good extra special care of those ACTUAL BALLOTS.   Wouldn’t want you fellers to run afoul of the LAW”

  12. Justice Department warns Karen Fann, Arizona Senate president, of civil rights violations in 2020 election audit – CNNPolitics

    Pamela Karlan, principal deputy assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, warned Senate President Karen Fann, a Republican, in a letter obtained by CNN that turning over election materials to audit contractor Cyber Ninjas — a Sarasota, Florida audit contractor hired by the GOP-controlled Arizona Senate — could be a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1960. Karlan also wrote in the letter that there are “at least issues of potential non-compliance with federal laws enforced by the Department.”
    The first, according to Karlan, is regarding reports that suggest the ballots, elections systems, and election materials in the Maricopa County audit are “no longer under the ultimate control of state and local election officials and are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors at an insecure facility, and are at risk of being lost, stolen, altered, compromised or destroyed.”
    Federal law requires state and local officials maintain ballots and election materials for 22 months. After a legal battle, an Arizona judge sided with the Senate when it issued a subpoenaed for the Maricopa County ballots and election machines. However, Maricopa County refused to participate in the counting. The letter also notes that the Arizona Senate could give custody of the materials to others, but must retain ultimate control.
    “We have a concern that Maricopa County election records, which are required by federal law to be retained and preserved, are no longer under the ultimate control of elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors, and are at risk of damage or loss,” Karlan wrote.

  13. Pogo – Stupid gqp does not know that the million extra bamboo ballots were turned into placemats and sold in Texas after the election count.

  14. where will it land? 


    U.S. Space Command is trackinga large Chinese rocket booster that is tumbling uncontrollably through space and is expected to come crashing down to Earth sometime this weekend.
    While the booster would be among the 10 largest objects ever to reenter Earth’s atmosphere on an uncontrolled trajectory, the risk for those on the ground is very low — astronomically low, scientists say. There’s a roughly 70 percent chance debris will fall mainly into the ocean, and even if not, the odds of it affecting a populated area are minuscule. There are no recorded instances of a human ever being killed by reentering space debris — though a cow in Cuba did lose its life in 1961.
    When an object falls out of orbit, the amount of debris that makes it to the ground depends on the object’s size, shape, mass and the melting temperatures of all materials used. Even the biggest satellites produce a comparatively tiny amount of debris.
    Some scientists estimate that nine metric tons of the Long March 5B rocket may survive reentry.
    Right now, there’s a 42-hour window, centered on Saturday night, during which the debris may crash down.

  15. surely some enterprising barkeep will promote a rocket plunge party this saturday. 

    they launched 5 new cocktail concoctions for the spaceX launch so why not for the plunge?

  16. maybe a twist on the bourbon smashed pumpkin cocktail merged with the mexican car crash (coronarita) drink.   

  17. …looks like rover might have discovered life on Mars, so that’s significant 🤷‍♂️

  18. Original series! because it also, unbeknownst to us at the time, had the fifth doctor.   PBS re-aired the old series before the new one and I just really love the old one best.
    (Did you know the fifth doctor is the tenth doctor’s father-in-law?)

    Best TV series: Northern Exposure

  19. Bid

    David Tennant (the tenth doctor) and Georgia Moffett now have five children.  Her father is Peter Davison (The fifth doctor)

    The whole family has many years of stage, film and TV appearances.
