The Republicans have assured me that our borders have collapsed.  I have no idea what that means, but it sure would sound scary, if I were a drooling moron.
 
2022-11-26 10:31:53 AM  
Is this the new Benghazi??  I thought Hunter's laptop was the new Benghazi.  Can they do two at once?  Do they have sufficient outrage to support simultaneous tantrums?

I can see it already -- spend millions and millions on pointless, fruitless hearings while completely ignoring any real problems the country faces, because...reasons, while simultaneously complaining that there's no money for things like healthcare or education.  IOW, same-old, same-old for the GQP.

How can so many people be so stupid and so cruel?

The same rules Trump had are still in place, except for the separation of kids from their parents.  There is no "border crisis", nor is the border "wide open".  Anybody who says so is a complete and total moron.
 
2022-11-26 10:38:30 AM  
It's frustrating that with all of the real issues that we face, one side chooses to ignore them entirely and make up fake ones.

This is going to backfire greatly on them.  The Benghazi hearings happened during a solid economy, so most people didn't think too much about it.

These new hearings will happen with inflation on the high side and general uncertainties for the economy. The "independents" that voted R in 2022 due to inflation are going to be fuming at the house morons they helped elect. I hope they reflect on their 2022 voting decisions when 2024 comes around.

They will also continue demanding Uncle Joe finish the last 90% of Trump's huge, bigly accomplishment, the wall.

(96.5% if you only count the new section)

Finally, the sons and daughters of elected Republicans and of billionaires everywhere will be able to get those jobs going into the fields in 118-degree heat to be paid $10/ton for harvesting rutabagas.

They need to focus on getting Mexico to pay for it.

I love those tweets where they complain that the border is open because the border patrol apprehended like 100,000 people. Like...what?
 
2022-11-26 11:29:37 AM  
Tell you what, Quevin: Introduce a bill to disband DHS and return the agencies back to their pre-9/11 homes. Do away with the Secretary of Homeland Security. Go in, do it. I'd be telling my Congressman and two Senators to support that.
 
2022-11-26 11:32:40 AM  
"We're going to need you to resign over something the happened only in our heads or else!"

That's the level of GOP thinking these days.

The only thing they're going to do for the next 2 years is impeach every government official they can think of.  Zero convictions but a lot of money wasted.
 
2022-11-26 12:50:11 PM  
It would be nice if the House spent its time fixing the immigration laws and appropriate adequate resources so the Executive branch has the tools to actually manage crises effectively.

But that doesn't please the racist FoxNews audience who would rather militarize the border and kill immigrants and refugees.
 
2022-11-26 12:55:42 PM  
Great yes do this.
And focus on hunter biden too.

And impeach ... someone. Everyone.

Important thing is that you do nothing of substance. Nothing you can point to in 2024 as a victory or as progress or as a reason to give your party another chance.

Just waste as much time as you can catering to the dipsh*t wing of your party. Yes.

And cuddle up with trump again too.
 
2022-11-26 12:58:01 PM  
These guys would scheiss their pants if they saw European borders. Like, they're nonexistent. Not even a line on the highway. It's insane because I never realized just how much of a police state Americans live in until coming over here. It's mind-boggling.
 
2022-11-26 1:12:50 PM  
Wait. Cowards attacking cowards?
Let them slap fight.

The migrants at the USA/Mexico border are to Republicans what the Jews were to the Nazis.

The end result would be the same. They'd need 60 or 66 votes in the Senate (I can't remember the precise rules) and there's no way in fark the gop would get that many.

The worst part will be the trials in the Senate cos they'd have to take it up by law I believe.

Just a waste of time...

They're also starting to call for Wray's resignation for something or other. Let them continue with that. Force Trump's pick out of the top spot at the FBI and let Joe nominate someone who has to be confirmed by a Dem-controlled Senate for a decade. That'll really stick it to the libs.

Bonus points if he asks Val Demmings to take that spot. She's out of a job now and a former police chief with federal government experience.

Which is the secondary reason that they will do it. The primary reason is to hurt democracy, but wasting time is pleasing to them too. They like to say that the government is broken, and then break it.

When the GQP says "border", think it pretty much translates to make segregation a thing again.

"McCarthy said that if Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas does not resign, the new House Republican majority will investigate him with an eye toward possible impeachment."

He should tell them to go fark themselves and let them get all huffy and puffy wasting time and resources on this instead of all other other evil shiat they have planned.

It always happens when a large group of people refuse to listen to any contrary opinions, create an isolated bubble for themselves within which they all think the same way, and then within this bubble constantly egg each other on to greater and greater extremes.
 
2022-11-26 2:02:28 PM  
"If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign," McCarthy continued, "House Republicans will investigate every order, every action and every failure, [and] will determine whether we can begin impeachment inquiry."


Maybe he can extort Ukraine for investigations into Secretary Mayorka's family's laptops?

Those second and third "points" really do sum up the modern right wing.  What's so great about being American?  Is it the standard of living?  Is it the care for its citizens?  Is it the bonds we share, the innovations we encourage, the ability to succeed?  Lol, no.  It's just something that we can deny to people.  "It's all mine, you can't have it because it's MINE!"  It's literally a toddler mentality, and like a toddler, they'll sooner break it than let anyone else have it, even though they had zero interest in it until someone else wanted it.
 
2022-11-26 2:10:48 PM  
McCarthy is still making plans for a job he doesn't have yet?  The other madmen surely have other ideas.
 
2022-11-26 2:11:17 PM  
The GOP House majority in the 118th Congress will force a Government shutdown and require the resignation of Garland as part of their negotiations.

They'll also refuse to re-authorize the defense bill with stipulations that no more aid be sent to Ukraine.
 
2022-11-26 2:11:44 PM  
There *is* a border crisis. A shiat-load of people are trying to cross the border and we're not processing them properly. Republicans would have you believe it's a World War Z horde overrunning everything and the only solution is to build a wall and shoot them as they approach. A better solution would be to to both better understand why they're coming here, fix that, and properly process them. These are people who *want* to be here and we are not doing an adequate job of helping them.

The third response under this tweet is probably as close to an answer as you're gonna get. Modern American society is based on wealth equals worth. Modern American capitalism is based on exploitation and oppression. So, we plebs tend to view the worst among us the most worthy and well, their shiatty behavior trickles down to the worst among us.

I'd be wary of these investigations. Instead of treating them like the popularity slam dunks we're thinking they are, don't forget that the right is very adept at slinging shiat at walls and getting some of it to stick. They're going scorched earth on Democratic Representatives and voters because they have nothing to solve our actual problems.
 
2022-11-26 2:12:58 PM  
They can demand in one hand and shiat in the other and we'll see which one fills up first.
 
2022-11-26 2:13:59 PM  
So is this like a presidential impeachment where the Senate has to convict?  If so, it's a congressional circle jerk.

Instant floor vote, 51-49 shot down.  Takes about a half hour.  Kind of like what McTurtle did for one of Trump's.

You don't brag about being the greatest country on Earth, meddle in your neighbors' political affairs to exacerbate their economic exploitation, & then expect anyone to take seriously your complaints about how their ppl want come here for a taste of that life you keep bragging about to escape the poverty your profit relies on.

Republicans' idea of border security is concentration camps to detain immigrants & then deport them only because they know they can't just turn the robot Gatling guns on them like the Israelis.

The fascist demagogues that are the GOP do not have solutions.

I think they want those dirty messicans so terrified of the U S of muddafrkkin A that they won't go within 20 miles of that their border.

Anything else is surrender. Or something.

Good, the more idiotic the House investigations the better. Its only red meat for the mouth breathers who will vote R no matter what. It's only going to alienate moderate Republicans who will hopefully stay home in 2024 and energize Democrats to get out the vote.
 
2022-11-26 2:18:23 PM  
Ah this is the Nixon payback.  Impeachment without conviction is just a badge of honor for the impeached party, they want that resignation.
 
2022-11-26 2:19:06 PM  
Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we begin by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes." When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty-to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy.

Abraham Lincoln

The Know-nothings now have control.

Agreed.

I'm actually looking forward to two years of hyperventilating over hunter biden's St. Patrick's day party, dragging random
school teachers before congress to grill them over CRT, sheer panic over store clerks who say happy holidays, etc.

It'll be fun.   And it'll keep them from causing real trouble.

"But border patrol is catching more drugs, proving things aren't working! '

/sounds like they are proving that things are working just fine?
