"Operation Eagles Wings"

It's cheesy, but you have to admit that it's a better operation name than "Operation REO Speedwagon Foo Fighters."

Well, the usual suspects were in jail, but then Ms. Finneran was a bit too effective in expediting Keaton's release. Holding the rest of them became a moot point.

Every election these farkers lose is going to be said to have been stolen.  Republicans have no integrity or honor, they're pond scum.

Actually I'm thinking that most should have been arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced to some enhanced interrogation at Gitmo followed by:

After all rope is resuable.

However they are WHITE. Oh and they're REPUBLICAN! Which probably means the only way they'll face any punishment is if God, or dumb luck, causes them to stroke out or get into a car accident, leaving them "locked in" for a couple decades.

If you really want to keep up with what the TFG and the GQP is up to then sign up for one of the seats at their rallies.

At least once a day for a few years now I get a fundraising email with the most clickbait-ish headline you can think of.  Everything from "Real Patriots Only" to "It'll Be Hillary."

At least once a week there's a "Brandon" reference too.

Charged? Are you JOKING? He's... WHITE!... REPUBLICAN!... and most importantly RICH!

You expect accountability for the top 2%-3% in America? Given your statement it's almost a certainty that you can't afford to buy justice, but they can easily pay to escape justice.

"A conservative treasongroup called, [sic *unironically ] the America Project that boasts Donald Trump loyalists and "big lie" pushers Roger Stone and Michael Flynn as key advisers has begun a self-styled "election integrity" drive to train activists in election canvassing and poll-watching, sparking fears from voting rights watchdogs about voter intimidation."

Edited for accuracy.

Eagles sort of suck.

The bald eagles around here are overpopulated and feeding on small dogs and cats.  There's a very graphic video of the "EagleCam" eaglets eating a cat while it is still alive (no, I will not provide the link.) Collars are frequently found in their nests.

I have a friend that refers to them as "hog hawks" as they scavenge around the hog lots he owns.

"On the wings of eagles" is a Biblical metaphor, describing the salvation of people in mortal danger (cf Exodus 19:4).

It's also the name given to an airlift of Yemeni Jews to Israel in 1948-50, to escape the persecution they'd faced there.

// Republicans: "so let's make it instead refer to disenfranchising The Wrong People in the name of 'election security'!"
 
2022-07-07 11:47:58 AM  
TFG can't ever admit that he lost the election, or it will open up his "fundraising" to fight the alleged election fraud to accountability questions like, please document how the money was spent.  He'll make Bernie Madoff look like a street corner 3 card monty dealer.

The right cannot fathom reaching equality by lifting up others, all they know is chopping people down.

So to them the only way they can concieveto make women and men equal is to make the men like women, and thats the left pushing transgenderism.

Yeah, here we have eagles and big owls feeding on small animals, including cats and dogs. Anyone who lets their pets run loose here is so irresponsible.

Well people could do the right thing and not let their cats out. Na that's too hard, better to biatch about an animal doing what it evolved to do.

There's a much more apt precedent for Republicans.

I just wish the Federal Elections Commission had the stones to actually start charging these politicians with  false pretense for fundraising   IE a SCAM, That would involve having election officials with actual integrity though.

This whole thing makes me sick to my stomach. Byrne's project is headquartered in the small town right where I live, and the next small town down is where Flynn lives. This area has become a cesspool of MAGAts. There's a known Proud Boy who owns a smoothie store downtown and who was photographed in DC on 1/6. And there's a place called The Hollow (google it, it's sickening) where they all gather for right wing events. I HATE THIS. I know that some if not most of them were involved in 1/6 and in election tampering. I just don't know if there's enough information on them to subpoena them or hold them on any charges. I'm hoping the next hearing on 1/6 will shed some light on at least Flynn and Byrne and Stone. Byrne is dangerous because he has a shiatload of his own money he is spending on all of this.

Putting on my cybersecurity hat for a second, there actually IS a problem with the American voting system but it has ZERO to do with any of the bullisht these people push. It's actually the opposite and their prescription would make it worse.

If someone were to commit really voter fraud, they would do it leveraging the fractured and at times local and Podunk nature of the systems involved. Companies like Dominion invested heavily in real, verifiable security and accountability for their machines and processes. Everything was documented and auditable if you really wanted to do that and if you even understood the subject matter enough to do it. The machines were not the problem-They were the solution. The problem is unqualified local morons supervising elections and fiddling with stuff, breaking the trust chain and that is going to happen in spades once more maga-morons get elected to those positions.

The solution to this is to have a UNIFORM FEDERAL voting system that is properly funded and tasked to keep up with security issues. Just like a proper census, the republicans don't want that. The clarity would make it obvious that they aren't actually a majority anywhere in the country and are only in power due to electoral shenanigans like gerrymandering and electoral college schemes.

And so we're f-ed. We need to start putting these people in jail and taking away their ill gotten funds. That's the only way the lie will stop and experts can exert influence on their field of expertise.

ZombieLambChop: Forget these guys... why isn't Matt Gaetz at least CHARGED????!!!!???


There must be a strategy in holding off charging a few, just to worry people who could be fingered by them as part of a plea deal.  Maybe there's someone Gaetz could be blackmailing, someone he could be fingering.

Sadly, I am 100% certain that it's a reference to one of the cheesiest "Jesus is my Boyfriend" bits of Sacro-pop out there, and it's *very popular*: On Eagles Wings".   In my work as an itinerant tenor, I have been called upon to sing it dozens of times.  Pure schlock.

And the Evangelical Authoritarians eat it up.

I'm not going to link to it, but there's tons of versions on YouTube if you don't already know the song. 

But the name is pretty clearly a dog whistle for Evangelicals.

Operation Eagles Wings. Shouldn't it be Operation Eagle's Wings, or Operation Eagles' Wings? I mean, you took all that time to think of that stupid name, publish it, and advertise it. Wouldn't it be best to have something so mockable be named correctly?

Some rope looses 1/2 it's strength if it gets wet.

These manly he-man conservatives are always crying on camera, and I think if they were wearing a hemp necktie they'd be blubbering like a broken hearted teenager.

I doubt you'd get to use it more than twice.

Better plan ahead and just build the gallows over a volcano in case the rope keeps breaking.

These people should be charged as terrorists, which i'm pretty sure is either basic prison or at least gitmo.
