Everything that seems bad for Trump brings no consequences for Trump. I quit waiting and hoping.

Tuberville is definitely an insurrection ringleader.
 
2021-01-27 6:52:32 AM  
When he is hanging like tinsel, things will be bad for him.
Until then, he is thumbing his nose at all we hold sacred as a nation.

I'm starting to think this Tuberville guy isn't very bright.  Looks like someone could easily make a patsy out of him.

Great news for republicans, Trump will live to 1,000.

Bad news for the rest of us, those will all be years of darkness.

And because they are politicians and rich people, absolutely nothing will happen to them.
 
2021-01-27 7:25:22 AM  
The very best they can claim is that they were trying to mimic the Brooks Brothers Riot from 2000. That was illegal but nobody got punished, so why not push the boundaries a little further?

The lesson is obvious: Throw the book at everybody involved. Extract a price in misery that will make them hesitate next time. The alternative is gradual escalation until they succeed at overthrowing the government.
 
2021-01-27 7:26:24 AM  
Wait, the guy who publicly said he wouldn't leave Ole Miss unless it was in a pine box and then shortly after left for a job at a rival school in their own division is not trustworthy?!

Yeah, pretty much anything that comes out of a Republican is a lie or a grift. Until their are any consequences, then nothing will happen and they will double down.

I was skeptical of Abramson's initial reporting, but the responses from the herp brigade have me wondering.

Donald Trump Jr. attending a meeting at the heart of a major Trump scandal, and it's unclear if Trump was present or aware of it...?

The most asinine assertion in that article is that it's "unclear" whether Trump was there.

Multiple people know exactly where the President of the United States is at all times. It's just not a thing that needs to be figured out or determined. It's recorded and known.

It's not well written. Can you link to a better written article on this?

"...trying to rush this hearing and how we need you, our Republican friends, to try to just slow it down so we can get these legislatures to get more information to you," Giuliani said in a voicemail.

Slow it down until the chamber can be stormed, you meant. There was no more "information" to be had  - not according to the 0-60 record with the courts.

It is looking more and more every day that this was an effort co-ordinatec from above - from the lies that built the foundation, to the scheme itself and its execution. From the top down. Nobody any of this stuff without Trump knowingly lying, and others trying to enable him.
 
2021-01-27 7:34:09 AM  
I'm certain the Republicans will be pushing for a thorough investigation into why 5 people lost their lives in a violent terror attack just like the ones they had for the attack in Benghazi.  I look forward to the ex-president being grilled for 14 hours on what happened January 6.

Try the following on for size:  Half scoop, in his eternal quest for Daddy's love and approval, plots and connives with other low life types, promising them the moon in return for their organizations providing the gullible troops.  The low life types, knowing a con when they see it, demand confirmation from above Half scoop's pay grade.  Half-scoop, knowing that Daddy loves phone conferences, assembles everyone at a 'secret' location and calls Daddy.  Two scoops takes the call, blathers enough gibberish and everyone in the room takes it as proof.  The braggarts in the room start taking photos for posterity or extortion, your choice.

When TSHTF, all persons involved begin immediate denials, not realizing that someone had posted to FB, and others saved that posting.  Two scoops denies all knowledge, as usual, and everyone in the room is on the hook.

My question is, will anyone be able to pin anything on two scoops?

This puts a different spin on that phone call to Mike Lee when he was trying to reach Tuberville during the riot.

Well, the Mueller report implied he is too stupid to have known what he was doing was illegal. He hasn't gotten any smarter, to my knowledge. I sure hope they do - it would be fun to fat donnie twoscoops throw him under the bus to save himself.

Nah, bad news for Republicans. He's going to steal half their fundraising capacity for the next 1000 years. They're going to struggle even on their safe turf.

Seriously, this is why Trump launching his dumbarse Patriot Party is something I struggle to see as a bad idea. He's going to split the GOP vote, IF he was planning on working with coalition with them it might be a worry, but they could never agree on who was the senior coalition partner.

If he was the junior partner, he'd never stop throwing pot-shots at them until he became the senior partner, in which case they'd have no option but to throw pot shots at him. It would be a debacle and kill the GOP for a generation. (Although everytime they get their arse handed to them we say it's going to kill them for a generation and it never seems to.)

They could have video of Trump giving the Braveheart speech to a collection of MAGA peckerwoods and the Republicans still won't vote to convict and Trump will gloat on whatever medium will allow him.

...because all of these people have spontaneously decided, amongst themselves - to pursue these meetings, etc...Trump was content just to watch cartoons and color with crayons until Jan 20th, after humbly accepting the outcome of the election.
