It’s All About the Green

That well-deserved truth from an unexpected source could also describe our political landscape ever since financial accountability in politics was thrown out or at least weakened by the Supreme Court in Citizens United.

Tim and Matt made these age-old observations applicable to what’s now happening in Critterville:

1 Timothy 6:10 – For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith [aka the U.S. Constitution], and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Matthew 6:24 – No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.


March comes in …

like lying no good, scheming politicians full of sturm and drang.
To wit, from the Hill:

“House Republicans are pumping the brakes on the release of Jan. 6 surveillance footage they’ve offered to Fox News host Tucker Carlson and going on offense against Democrats who have spent the past week slamming the move.

Republican leaders are emphasizing that no clips will be broadcast without prior security clearance while accusing Democrats of neglecting the same precautions during the investigation by the House select committee last year — a charge the Democrats quickly rejected.

Carlson, Fox’s wildly popular conservative pundit, said last week that he would begin airing footage from the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot this week, after Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) offered him what Carlson described as “unfettered” exclusive access to more than 40,000 hours of unreleased surveillance tape starting earlier in the month.

Yet McCarthy and other Republicans, following days of silence on the topic, made clear Tuesday that no information would be released to Carlson’s team — let alone broadcast publicly — before the footage is screened to ensure it doesn’t compromise the security of the Capitol complex. 

The Speaker said Republicans are working with the U.S. Capitol Police to ensure that’s the case. “
