Did Vince farking Russo book the Jan 6 Insurrection?

That would explain quite a bit, actually.

Fark this piece of trash specifically. He built up some respectability and then spent it all on attempted treason. That places him in a special and unique category of asshole.

He will be subpoenaed but we all know how that works. Like, it doesn't.

No, I seriously think we need to hang one or two, if only to show "This is what happens when you cross that line"

He trotted out the same shiat things like Newsmax, Alex Jones and Fox use to defend themselves in court; ie "Nobody would ACTUALLY take us seriously, so it's OK!".

It's always bullshiat, but it works far too often.

It's great and all that the insurrectionists are so farking stupid that they admit to all their crimes on video, but the next Republican traitor might not be so idiotic.

45** The Fat Loser surrounded himself with people more stupid than he was, so he could be the "smartest" person in the room. I doubt the GQP will make that sane mistake again.

Right -- so overturning an election result is "cleansing the Beltway" -- nevermind that his guy lost.

He never quite addresses why his memo was justified beyond loving Trump.

Just like the election fraud stuff and the obsession with child sexual rings.  They assume Democrats want the same things they do.

Queue up the Republican water carriers. "B-b-b-but what about the FBI report saying there was no central planning for the Jan 6 insurrection!?!?"

Yeah hinterlands, where those white supremacist "salt of the earth" morons live with rugged individualist privilege  and freedom to oppress people of color who don't want anything to do with government unless it's to destroy it.

He is right when he said Trump tapped into that.

A bit harsh, eh? That was just locker room insurrection. He was just being sarcastic. Don't take him literally, take him anally. Obummer did it, too! Have you tried injecting Hunter Biden's laptop?
 
2021-10-26 10:20:21 PM  
So what? Was this supposed to be something scandalous? Did the guy say something you wouldn't expect him to say? He didn't say anything in this conversation he wouldn't say publicly. BORING.

Not exactly as he characterized it. Basically saying she may find herself in a position similar to Pence but against a stronger republican challenge to democracy.

Did they record the video digitally? Or on magnetic tape? Shoulda gone old school and used 16mm movie film.

And said that the Atlantic said that Harris could do the same thing in 2024 when Dotard wins.

And, of course, the very reason she might feel she needs to act is BECAUSE of the electoral farkery that the GOP is proposing, not to enable it, as Pence was asked to do.

How about this scenario...

Republicans take control of both the House and the Senate in 2022.  Not unlikely.

Biden passes away after that election but before the next presidential election.  President Harris is sworn in.  Not entirely unlikely.

The Vice Presidency now vacant, obviously.  President Harris nominates whomever.  McConnell does not, and will not confirm that nominee.  No nominee will ever be acceptable.  There is no vice president.  In the vice president's absence the role falls to the Senate President Pro Tempore, who will probably be the 138 year old Chuck Grassley.  Not unlikely.

A Republican Majority vows to refuse to recognize any result other than a Trump victory.  Entirely likely.

Trump loses election.  Likely?

In lieu of a VP, Chuck Grassley asserts his authority as President Pro Tem to send the election to 'alternate electors'.  Maybe not likely, but something that would foment nonsense.

This is the problem with gotcha videos. I can believe he was lying to establishment types to escape blame. I can also see him spinning whatever shiat to the rubes, because GOP grift. But HE DID WRITE THAT shiat. He may not believe what he wrote, simply taking the money and putting words on paper to appease the Orange Turd in the Punchbowl; but effort was made. Whether he believed it or not, it was used as pretext to overturn an election. Mike Pence didn't use it, but Trump and his allies kept it as some sort of legal armor to what they were going to do.

He was last seen claiming what he wrote were just a bunch of draft ideas and never taken seriously. If it was presented to Pence as legal justification to overthrow the election, that's obviously not how he characterized it.

Hmm yeah not at all justifying the Eastman Memo as he bragged.

Interesting read though, and it does show that 2024 is being setup as we speak to potentially force some hands to address red state shenanigans and face claims of delegitimization if Biden wins reelection.
 
2021-10-26 10:55:14 PM  
Seems like you don't really have to go outside the beltway at all to find rabid, racist individuals who want to burn it all down because that's better than living with the consequences of their own shaitty choices.
