The Hill Article: Marjorie Taylor Greene should be expelled from Congress — but Republicans are too afraid of Trump to do it

Greene, a vehement anti-masker, recently compared COVID-19 health measures to the Nazi regime's extermination of six million Jews in World War II. She claimed that a vaccination logo on the name badges of vaccinated employees in a supermarket is just like the yellow stars Jews were forced to wear in Nazi-occupied Europe. And she tweeted that a university's policy of barring unvaccinated students from class was a Nazi practice. As the American Jewish Congress pointed out, Such comparisons demean the Holocaust.

Michael Flynn Calls for Myanmar-Style Coup in the U.S.

Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn—now firmly entrenched in the lunatic fringe—told a QAnon conference this weekend that he supports a violent military coup in the U.S. Video from the Dallas confab posted on social media shows Flynn was asked by an audience member “why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here?” As the audience of conspiracy theorists cheered, Flynn responded: “No reason. I mean, it should happen here.” Myanmar’s military in February seized control of the country, detaining leaders Aung San Suu Kyi and Win Myint, claiming their election was fraudulent.

Title: Ted Cruz endorses Russian Army Recruitment Ad

Ted Cruz lashes out at anchor who called him ‘Kremlin Cruz’ over endorsement of Russian army ad

Texas senator who railed against ‘emasculated’, ‘woke’ military culture was excoriated by veterans after endorsing macho power of Russian army recruitment ad

Texas Senator Ted Cruz spent Friday evening railing at a news anchor for describing him with an unflattering epithet because of his reverence for a Russian army recruitment ad.

Mr Cruz last week expressed his combined anger, embarrassment and concern that whereas Russia is recruiting troops with hypermasculine videos focused on muscles, uniforms and guns, the US – whose defence budget is more than 12 times the size of Russia’s – is putting out pastel-coloured ads telling stories of diverse paths towards military service, with messages that focus not on violence and physical toughness but on values.

Veterans criticized Republican Senator Ted Cruz on Thursday after he complained about a U.S. Army recruiting ad that was featured in a viral clip comparing it with a Russian military ad.

VoteVets, a political group that supports veterans and promotes liberal causes, also criticized Cruz.
 
"Ted Cruz attacks a US Army soldier for telling her story, says he prefers Russians. Because Ted Cruz is a sedition-loving traitor," the group wrote.

Amy McGrath, a former U.S. Marine who ran against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell last year, also took aim at Cruz. "Dear @tedcruz- you have no idea what being a warrior is all about. Signed, all women who have worn the uniform to protect your right to be an ass," she wrote.

Republican says 'embarrassing' Arizona recount 'makes us look like idiots'

A GOP state senator blasted the 2020 election vote audit in an Arizona county, saying "it makes us look like idiots."

"Looking back, I didn't think it would be this ridiculous. It's embarrassing to be a state senator at this point," Arizona state Sen. Paul Boyer, who previously supported the audit in Maricopa County, added on Friday, according to The New York Times.

Title: YouTube suspends Sen. Johnson for COVID-19 'misinformation'
Post by: eyephone on June 13, 2021, 01:03:48 PM
Sen. Ron Johnson was suspended Friday from uploading videos to YouTube for one week, after the company said he violated its COVID-19 “medical misinformation policies.”

The Wisconsin Republican's removal stems from statements he made during a June 3 Milwaukee Press Club event, which were posted to YouTube. He criticized the Trump and Biden administrations for “not only ignoring but working against robust research (on) the use of cheap, generic drugs to be repurposed for early treatment of COVID,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

A YouTube spokesperson said: “We removed the video in accordance with our COVID-19 medical misinformation policies, which don’t allow content that encourages people to use Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin to treat or prevent the virus.”

This is not "guilty till proven innocent".

Now creepy porn lawyer want in on the action.  This whole thing looks more and more like a political hit job. 

and on the same day that Trump is cleared..creepy porn lawyer is indited...how delightful.

Even CNN sees the inevitable...Smith will be their downfall...(as I predicted)

Supreme Court and Joe Manchin tighten Biden's political straitjacket

(CNN)Both the premise and promise of Joe Biden's presidency and a possibly brief Democratic grip on Washington are suddenly on the line, as the legacy of past electoral disappointments and harsh realities of power suddenly converge.

In the seven-month span of Biden's term, this is the worst of times for Democrats. A stroke-of-midnight eclipse of Constitutional abortion rights in Texas that shocked liberals, a new threat from moderate Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin to Biden's vast congressional agenda and the President's own stumbles in Afghanistan dragged this White House to its lowest moment yet.
Friday brought its own series of bad news for the President in the form of a disappointing August jobs report -- only 235,000 jobs were added to the economy last month, far off the estimates of 728,000 or more -- and General Motors' announcement that it is shutting down production at most of its plants in North America for a week or two as the microchip shortage becomes a crisis.
Add in the Republican Party's expanding assault on voting rights and a looming fight over raising government borrowing levels, and Democrats face a struggle to repay the faith of their 2020 voters. And that's without horrendous tests from a pandemic that is again filling hospitals, targeting unvaccinated Americans -- including, increasingly, kids who have been left waiting on regulators -- and looking likely to dog the White House deep into midterm election year.

Not very far, if key House progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is to be believed.
"Maybe we hit the 'cancel' button on this so-called 'bipartisan' charade of an Exxon lobbyist drafted infrastructure bill unless we actually pass a law that helps people's lives with healthcare expansion, childcare, climate action, etc," Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.
Manchin's doubts do not just endanger a single Democratic priority. The spending blueprint is a monster that pretty much includes all of Biden's top priorities in a measure that can evade the filibuster and pass with a limited device known as reconciliation.
But if Democrats can't get Manchin on board it is doomed. And this is also about more than one bill. The spending bill is part of a delicate dance designed to convince progressives like Ocasio-Cortez to back the bipartisan infrastructure measure that she mentioned. That proposed law would be a landmark of the Biden presidency but falls far short of the hopes of more liberal members.

Yea, I have problems with people screaming names through the fence of the middle school at kids because of masks.  Trucks trying to force election buses off the road.  This is who many of these people really are.  They may have been decent people previously but now, they’re unrecognizable addicts chronically spewing rage, hostility being fed misinformation 24x7.

By that reasoning, if Katie supports Biden but Biden has horrible support himself, that means Katie will be voted out.

Huffpost: Rep. Lauren Boebert’s Campaign Gets The State She Represents Wrong

The campaign of Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) mistakenly identified her as a representative of Utah in a report submitted to the Federal Election Commission on Thursday. 

An earlier version of the report for the campaign’s third quarter of 2021, filed Oct. 15, listed Boebert’s state as Colorado. A revised version was filed Thursday and changed the state and district from Colorado 03 to Utah 03, among other amendments. Following Forbes’ report, the filing was edited again on Friday to say Colorado.

Katie Porter is extremely articulate in her hearings, but she does not represent the majority views of her constituency. She doesn’t even work in D.C., which either shows how effective she is or how poor the other candidate option has been. However, she wins elections because the second candidate is either lesser known or uses divisive issues to become known. Once known, that same candidate loses the moderate “deciding” voter.

What I know is that I heard not one word about Katie Porter until re election time and then poof, she was all over the internet with her campaign. It's hard to unseat an incumbent if things are going well unless they manage to do something that really upsets people like Mimi did. She managed to shoot her own self voting to remove SALT deductions. Obamacare vote didn't do anything to anyone since it didn't pass. SALT did, plus her town hall issues.

Because the two parties have rigged the Senate and House rules so that the two parties control who sits on which committees and those committees can choke everything.

IMhO, the Virginia race is simple, McAuliffe gaffed.  Youngkin going played the race thing, railed on a non-existent CRT in school and Mc literally said parents shouldn’t be listened to.  Honestly, the Republican mantra was protection from the  big bad democrats indoctrination machine and the Dem said parents need to shut up.

New Jersey is more interesting.

Most individual taxes – California – $234.5B
In total, California contributes the most individual taxes to the federal budget.

As of the most recent tax year for which figures were available (2017), Californians paid over $234 billion in federal income taxes. That’s about 15% of the national total, and nearly 95 times as much as paid by residents of Vermont.

Red States Lead With Federal Dependence
Democratic-voting blue states tend to be wealthier and pay more to the federal government than they get. In contrast, Republican-voting red states tend to have less wealth and receive more federal government funds than they pay. In the MoneyGeek rankings, 8 of the 10 most dependent states are considered red states.

Nine states sent more to the federal government than they received — seven of these were Democrat-voting and had higher per capita GDPs than many of the red states that received the most.

Well if Biden blames Trump...trump must have done it...

Biden blames TRUMP voters and 'conservative folks' for Democrat's loss in Virginia: President's bizarre excuse for Youngkin's victory when people are 'upset about COVID and the price of gasoline'

Biden blamed Donald Trump's supporters for Democrat Terry McAuliffe losing the Virginia gubernatorial race
'I'm not sure that I would be able to have changed the number of very conservative folks who turned out and the red districts who were Trump voters,' Biden said during a White House event on Wednesday
The president said that he continues to bring up Trump 'because the issues he supports are affecting their lives every day, and their negative impact on their lives'
'People are upset and uncertain about a lot of things – from COVID to school to jobs to a whole range of things, and the cost of a gallon of gasoline,' he said
Biden was speaking Wednesday about the CDC approving COVID-19 vaccines for kids 5-11
Shell-shocked Democrats were reassessing what went wrong after losing the Virginia governor's race
Lawmakers pointed to the failure to pass Biden's domestic agenda and progressives issued stark messages 
Progressive said McAuliffe's campaign 'had no rebuttal to Republican race-baiting bull****'
Moderate Democrats have called for an end to the infighting that has blocked spending bill talks
Joe Manchin called the Virginia results 'unbelievable' and said it shows Dems need to focus more on issues   
Youngkin beat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia, while New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was clinging to narrow lead

Trump sweeps Election Day, goes 4-0

With his post-election popularity and influence at the highest, the former president’s four endorsed candidates in Tuesday’s elections all won, highlighted by Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin, the rookie politician who beat lifetime pol Terry McAuliffe.

In Ohio’s 15th Congressional District, Mike Carey was elected to Congress in a special election to succeed former Rep. Steve Stivers. Carey is a former coal lobbyist who Trump picked out of a crowded primary of 11 candidates.

In the general election, Trump issued multiple endorsements of Carey, recorded a robocall, and hosted a telerally to help the Republican beat his Biden-endorsed opponent.

Trump also scored in the race for borough president of Staten Island, New York. He backed Vito Fossella 48 hours before the primary election in June. In the general election, he also taped a robocall, and Fossella won big last night 60%-30%.

In his victory speech, Fossella repeatedly thanked Trump and told supporters, “Tell President Trump what Staten Island thinks of what he has done!”

In the mayor’s race for Hialeah, Florida, Trump endorsed Esteban “Steve” Bovo, who avoided a runoff, winning 59% of the vote against a former mayor of Hialeah.

Jack told Secrets, “In 2020, his record in congressional special and primary elections was 120-2, and last night, he was 4-0 in general elections in Virginia, Ohio, New York, and Florida. Results don’t lie.”

Teacher Who Quit After January 6 Photo Emerged Gets Elected to School's Board

A teacher who resigned after a photo emerged of him at the January 6 riot at the Capitol has won a seat on a school committee in Massachusetts.

Lynch taught at Braintree High School for more than 10 years before leaving in February after images of him standing in front of the Capitol building on January 6 were posted on social media.

Went with the hubby and I had to ask him if the price on the package of meat (NOT THAT MUCH MEAT and not a high quality cut) was over $25.

So............. that is what we're upset about. The price of groceries, gas, rent (if we're renters with expiring leases).

Ted Cruz lashes out at anchor who called him ‘Kremlin Cruz’ over endorsement of Russian army ad

Texas senator who railed against ‘emasculated’, ‘woke’ military culture was excoriated by veterans after endorsing macho power of Russian army recruitment ad

Texas Senator Ted Cruz spent Friday evening railing at a news anchor for describing him with an unflattering epithet because of his reverence for a Russian army recruitment ad.

Mr Cruz last week expressed his combined anger, embarrassment and concern that whereas Russia is recruiting troops with hypermasculine videos focused on muscles, uniforms and guns, the US – whose defence budget is more than 12 times the size of Russia’s – is putting out pastel-coloured ads telling stories of diverse paths towards military service, with messages that focus not on violence and physical toughness but on values.

Russian army generals too fat for new uniform

Russian generals will soon have a stylish new uniform designed by a top fashion designer, but the question is: Will they fit?

More than 30% of the army’s elite officers are overweight and 25% failed a fitness test, army spokesperson Vyacheslav Sedov said on Wednesday.

What is happening to Republicans?..It's all gooooood...Like a smooth whisky on a hot night.. Ask the Snake.

Why the Dem strategy in Virginia failed, and how Youngkin flipped the state

James Carville, Democratic Strategist:

Well, what went wrong is this stupid wokeness.

All right? Don't just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island, look at Buffalo, look at Minneapolis. Even look at Seattle, Washington. I mean, this defund the police lunacy, this take Abraham Lincoln's name off of schools, that — people see that.

And it's just — really have a suppressive effect all across the country to Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a woke detox center or something. They're expressing language that people just don't use. And there's a backlash and a frustration at that.

And you're right. Suburbanites in Northern Virginia, suburbanites in Northern New Jersey pulled away a little bit. Youngkin never ran any ads against Biden. And I think what he did is just let the Democrats pull the pin and watch the grenade go off on them.

And we have got to change this and not be about changing dictionaries and change laws. And these faculty lounge people that sit around mulling about I don't know what are — they're not working. Look what happened in Buffalo, again, Seattle. I think the Republicans may have won a city attorney's race in Seattle, the autonomous zone.

Who could even think of something that stupid? And they're suppressing our vote. And I have got news for you. You're hurting the party. You're hurting the very people that you want to help.

And Terry got caught up. He's a good friend of mine. He's a good guy. He got caught up in something national, and we have got to change this internally, in my view.

China and Russia “would like to capitalize on talking points like that,” the Pentagon chief told CNN in a Memorial Day interview, insisting the U.S. military will never be “soft.”

Morekas forgets the afghan military abandoned their posts and/or changed their uniforms. 300k afghanistan soldiers couldnt hold off 50k opposition.

You do realize we still have soldiers in Germany, England, South Korea, Bahrain, Guam, Iraq, Qatar and dozens and dozens of countries?…over 600 bases in other countries A military presence in Afghanistan would have been nominal and would have been an important operating base (Bagrahm) to project power and stability… The Afghan government would not have fallen. But, President Brandon wanted a photo op for 911…well he got it.  (Cost only 13 American soldiers and a family of ten Afghans)

Wrong, trumps deal kept Bagrahm and it was Brandon and his foolish inept general staff who allowed that base to be over run, releasing 7000 hardened taliban and isis terrorists to return immediately to the field. But got out in time for 911…mission accomplished!

luckily I have a sense of humor and find your suggestion of maintaining a "nominal" base at Bagram (and, for that matter, that the US army's warfighting ability is somehow diminished by recruiting ads that don't feature buff shirtless dudes with really poor wall climbing technique) hilarious rather than offensive

We have 15000 troops right now in Quatar. That’s almost 6 times as many as we had in Afghanistan towards the end. The US Fifth fleet is based in Bahrain. Maintaining and defending  a base we built outside off Kabul would have been strategic and actually welcomed.

Having been deployed to both Qatar and Afghanistan I can tell you that they are quite different

For example, I don't think there are any swim-up Applebee's in Afghanistan. But the one in Doha is dope.

Read Doha Agreement signed on February 29, 2020, by Trump and Taliban, moreliar.

On 29 February 2020, the US and the Taliban signed the Doha Agreement (officially titled the "Agreement for Bringing Peace to Afghanistan") that provided for the withdrawal from Afghanistan of "all military forces of the United States, its allies, and Coalition partners, including all non-diplomatic civilian personnel, private security contractors, trainers, advisors, and supporting services personnel" within 14 months (ie., by 1 May 2021). "

Biden pushed the withdrawal to a later date so that non military personnel had time to leave, but those dumb asses decided to stay behind, causing problems for military withdrawal.

Of course they are, that’s not my total point. Maintaining  bases  (especially ones we built) in semi hostile territories are something we are pretty good at. The challenges of Bagrahm would have been met and it would have provided significant stability to the government and been of strategic importance to the region. Now, all the prisoners are running the government and the Chinese are moving into our offices.  Not a good ending.

"

Biden pushed the withdrawal to a later date so that non military personnel had time to leave, but those dumb asses decided to stay behind, causing problems for military withdrawal.

The Trump plan included retaining control of Bagram Air Base until all Americans were withdrawn from Afghanistan. Bagram has two runways and other facilities that safely can handle significant amounts of traffic and also host a large population. Kabul airport has just one runway.

“No one in their right mind would have closed Bagram Air Base while leaving behind thousands of civilians,”

Milley also said the generals “estimated that the risk” of going out of Bagram or Karzai International “was about the same,” but he also acknowledged that Joe Biden did not leave enough troops for a scenario in which an evacuation was necessary to hold Bagram, protect the embassy, and protect Karzai International.

Bagram also was home to a prison where the U.S. held accused terrorists who were set to be prosecuted. Among them were alleged senior Al Qaida operatives. After seizing the base, the Taliban released thousands of prisoners who were considered to be a high threat to the West.

The U.S. never planned simply to release those prisoners.

“Everything changed when the new commander in chief declared that U.S. forces would leave Afghanistan by Sept. 11, 2021, pushing back the Trump administration’s timetable by four months. Crucially, he didn’t condition the withdrawal on continued adherence to the agreed-upon stipulations. It would be an unconditional pullout with an arbitrary date based on pure symbolism — and set in stone.

“At that point, the Taliban sat back and waited for the date to draw near, then launched a countrywide offensive, knowing they had no reason to fear any reprisals from this administration. The ongoing chaos — not least the stranding of U.S. personnel and allies — was the natural result of the Biden administration’s decision to eschew a conditions-based plan.”

Nearly two dozen California students and parents are among the thousands currently stranded in Afghanistan after taking a summer trip to visit family.

More than 30 California children still stuck in Afghanistan

SAN DIEGO (AP) — More than 30 California children are stuck in Afghanistan after they traveled to the country to see their relatives weeks before the Taliban seized power and were unable to get out before U.S. forces left, according to school districts where the kids are enrolled.

Officials with three school districts — one in the San Diego area and two in Sacramento — said Wednesday that they have been in contact with the families who fear they have been forgotten by the U.S. government. The officials said that some of the children were born in the United States and are U.S. citizens

How dense are you? Of course it's their fault for traveling to Afghanistan knowing that the US are withdrawing. Is it a secret that the US is withdrawing? No, it's been known for more than a year.

Stop being dense. Stop deflecting.

President Dense left Americans behind enemy line.  American children. California children. And hundreds of others. Hasn't lifted a finger to try and help because he needed to have dinner in Scotland to discuss nonsensical nonpromises….Shamefully, all for a photo op. As dense and unAmerican as one could get.

China mocks 'powerless' Joe after his apology for US pulling out of Paris Accords: State-run newspaper says they can't wait for 'Trump to say sorry for Biden in 2024'

Biden’s apology in Glasgow shows hypocrisy, powerlessness of US politicians

Unlike what Biden may have expected, the apology triggered ridicule. Quite a few netizens, including those from the US, claimed they cannot wait until 2024 when the Republican Party, or even Donald Trump himself, apologizes for Biden's apology.

‘Friends, something is happening’: Longtime Texas Democrat cites DC policies in becoming a Republican

A longtime Texas Democrat legislator announced today that he is switching his political affiliation to the GOP in his reelection bid.

At a press conference where he was joined by Gov. Greg Abbott and Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan, state Rep. Ryan Guillen explained why he made the move.

“Friends, something is happening in South Texas, and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in Washington, D.C., are not our values, not the values of most Texans. The ideology of defunding the police, of destroying the oil and gas industry and the chaos at our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in South Texas,” the lawmaker said, according to the Houston Chronicle
