shpritz: Alphax: shpritz: Alphax: shpritz: You just elected a guy who would like nothing more than to forgive and forget for national unity's sake.

According to whom?

To the man himself.

He says he won't interfere with the Justice Department.  That means something entirely different.

Does the article not state that he prefers to "move on"? He won't interfere with the DOJ, but he will be appointing the people that runn it and setting the tone. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I don't believe you'll see consequences for the crime spree that happened during Trump's administration. Liberals are still too scared of the drama that conservatives generate.


The article says it.. but it doesn't say that Biden said it.

No. Depending on the state, it can be any affected person, lawyer or not, who reports the behavior, or the State Bar can take action itself without any complaint being filed by others,

Watch . I think that you do not understand how much anger that there is, desite us electing a basic Center Left Republican to clean up this absolute mess.

Angry. Law on the peoples side. People in Government who care, again. Realist, not an optimist, but I expect some actual consequences for the past few years .

Their flailing brings such glee to my soul. On election night and the day after I was a bit butthurt that there was not an instant blowout, hell i'm still pissed about all the down-ballot losses. That said this is the absolutely PERFECT way for Mushroom Donnie to lose. We get to see him and all his friends act like total fools.  I promise you this will all be in the history books and trumpers will be laughed at the same way that pro-confederate douches are laughed at today.

Reminds me of all the times Hillary screamed fake news when she lost the election and all the genuine attempts by the democrats to block the transfer of power. Also I smile when I think about all the times her lawyers threatened to kill various GOP turds.

What's more likely?

I know my fair share of these idiots.  They're comitted.  I served with a couple of them.

They really think there is a covert war going on and think they are ready to fight for it.

This isn't some itg people talking about how if they were in a mass shooting they'd be the hero.  These are full on delusions.

Like the post a couple above about cia agent and us soldiers being killed...

A simple search that there were no casualties reported for CIA or US military anywhere they mentioned... or anywhere at all.

I pointed that out to a few of them when they were posting about this.... and was told the media is covering it up, but they saw the press releases with their own eyes.

This isn't something they're just going to snap out of January 20th at noon.

They don't think it's over and will think there was an actual theft of the election and will want revenge.

It's bullshiat.  Maybe 1 or 2 people said something.... and the it's suddenly "a vast majority."

The Republican party is an evil relic of a dark age.  Demographic shifts pull them further away from every having power again.  When president Biden legalizes the 11 million undocumented american citizens, it will be a great day.  It will be the morally right thing to do and will be the official end of republicanism.  I look forward to one day taking my students into a museum, through the "hall of violence" and explaining to them what a Republican was.  They will be stunned that anyone ever believed such things.

Sadly, this.

Derpublicans don't really have anything coherent enough to call a "plan". With the exception of the occasional True Believer, each one is basically using the party for access to gullible rubes with money (and votes) to burn. Each has his/her own agenda, which sometimes aligns with the agendas of the senior party leadership, but they're mostly in the game for their own entertainment and (especially) enrichment. They're all about the path of least resistance, and the easy way to get power an money is to fleece the low-information portion of the population by pretending to share that group's delusions and insecurities.

The path of least resistance is fading out beneath their feet, so each individual derpublican politician has been flailing about, trying desperately to get the demographic tide to retreat at their command. Adapting to reality has never been the strong suit for any conservative, but the pandering to the lowest common denominator has led to derpublican politicians stuck on stupid. They cannot change policies to appeal to rational voters, because the thick-witted rubes they've been gulling for decades will stop supporting them with money and votes. The rational voters are usually harder to please and are also harder to con with impunity- they might vote for the ex-derpublican, but are less likely to sacrifice Junior's college fund to support parasites such as politicians. It takes hard work to induce well-informed people to support a politician, and derpublicans have let those political muscles atrophy while they've been glutting themselves at troughs full of under-informed voters.

No matter what they do, derpublican politicians are facing their worst fear- irrelevance. Fewer and fewer voters are buying the snake-oil they're selling, and those who do are often slightly unstable. This election has shown them their future- the poorly-educated white male demographic is no longer sufficient to prop up the political career of lazy politicians. Dumb and lazy politicians are even more prone than usual to choose impulsive, short-term solutions to their longer-term problems. So some of them are manically pushing every political button they can find to protect their phony-baloney jobs. Their panic-blinded eyes are locked on their next hit of power and cash, and they are therefore ignoring the likely consequences of their blundering.

Derpublican politicians can't risk pissing off the toddler-in-chief. They can't afford to switch sides without suffering immediate political penalties. They've painted themselves into a corner, and the desperate attempts to get out of the mess they're in are increasingly likely to result in violence from the deranged shiatweasels among us. The political and personal consequences of their panic are far more likely to be detrimental than helpful to those derpublicans and their political futures, but they don't (or can't) care. They're in trouble right now, so they make increasingly risky bets- with lives as the table stakes.

If large-scale political violence breaks out as a result of these stupid decisions by lazy politicians (there have already been scattered incidents), the politicians who stirred it up are likely to lose everything they're trying so desperately to keep. Either the violent actors get quickly curb-stomped or the violence escalates into long-running guerilla warfare. The politicians who started it will be screwed either way. Political violence and societal instability tend to have deleterious effects on profit margins- both political and financial. When their constituents are living in fear of terrorist attacks by their fellow Americans, they'll be unlikely to send money to politicians. Corporate donors and/or rich families would likely be less enthusiastic to support politicians under those circumstances.

But that's all tomorrow. Derpublican politicians are focused on what they want today, confident they can deal with the consequences later. They're just like drug addicts in that respect. Gotta get that next fix- nothing else matters.

We are finally starting to see news articles explain where some of this stuff is coming from, even if vaguely. They mention Newsmax because that's the hot new topic to talk about, but the Howie Carr show is an AM Talk Radio show.

I'm glad to see conventional news is starting to pay attention and reporting where this right-wing extremism is coming from.

You would never hear a politician call for executions even on Fox, as shiat as they are, they do have better decorum than that. But AM Talk Radio? You better believe that's where you will get despot wannabes clambering  for more and more extremist views.

But we, who beat them in the election, are supposed to "reach out" to them and "understand" them and "find a middle ground" somewhere between what they want (extermination of non aryans) and what we want ( everyone to be free and safe ).

Who are the real monsters on Maple Street? Humans are the real monsters because their minds are full of fear and prejudice. This causes humans to turn on each other.


The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices...to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill...and suspicion can destroy...and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own-for the children and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.  ~ Rod Serling
