The Catholic Bishops' Club:
As Groucho Marx once said, "I wouldn't want to belong to a club that had me as a member!"
IMO, Catholic Bishops have NO moral authority where it concerns President Biden.
The GQPers don't even try to hide their corruption anymore:

Well that's a great start to rounding up the criminal types who kissed up to Trump when he refused to accept his overwhelming defeat at the polls in November and in how our American democracy works.
Anyone who has anything to do with Don the Con ends up indicted or in jail.
Let's hope the next big news is about the Big Orange Cahuna being indicted!
Here's the ruling:

A brief trip around the rabid right wing Trumper blogs shows them discussing how "crazy" and "dangerous" the Democrats are.
But those same bloggers apparently either don't read about their own party leaders' anti-democracy legislation, or they approve of anti-free speech when the speech is offensive only to them.
Read these two reports below to understand who the folks who are intolerant and who want to impose "sharia-like" restrictions on women and their reproductive choices.
The current GQP is a party of proto-fascists who continue to support a former president who is under criminal investigation, was impeached twice, and who incited an attack on his own government and his own vice president.
You won't read any of this because those GQPers are hypocrites, liars, and anti-democracy Trump cultists:
TALLAHASSEE — In his continued push against the “indoctrination” of students, Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday signed legislation that will require public universities and colleges to survey students, faculty and staff about their beliefs and viewpoints to support “intellectual diversity.”

The man who incited an insurrection against his own government and his own vice president, and who believes he'll be "reinstated" as POTUS in August, tried to get his own DoJ to join him in his corruption in the last days of his corrupt regime. These are shocking details of Trump's debasement of the Constitution. May Trump never come close to power again. And may he feel the fullest punishment of the law for what he tried to do:
WASHINGTON — An hour before President Donald J. Trump announced in December that William P. Barr would step down as attorney general, the president began pressuring Mr. Barr’s eventual replacement to have the Justice Department take up his false claims of election fraud.
Mr. Trump sent an email via his assistant to Jeffrey A. Rosen, the incoming acting attorney general, that contained documents purporting to show evidence of election fraud in northern Michigan — the same claims that a federal judge had thrown out a week earlier in a lawsuit filed by one of Mr. Trump’s personal lawyers.
The emails, turned over by the Justice Department to investigators on the House Oversight Committee and obtained by The New York Times, show how Mr. Trump pressured Mr. Rosen to put the power of the Justice Department behind lawsuits that had already failed to try to prove his false claims that extensive voter fraud had affected the election results. They are also the latest example of Mr. Trump’s frenzied drive to subvert the election results in the final weeks of his presidency, including ratcheting up pressure on the Justice Department. And they show that Mr. Trump flouted an established anticorruption norm that the Justice Department acts independently of the White House on criminal investigations or law enforcement actions, a gap that steadily eroded during Mr. Trump’s term.
As more and more documents are released, we understand the depth of Trump's dishonesty and treachery and how he would use the levers of power to keep himself in the presidency he so clearly and overwhelmingly lost.
The thing to remember is this: Republican politicians believe in winning. They benefit greatly from the electoral college and from the United States Senate. They have used redistricting in state legislatures to create super-majorities. For the most part, most Trumpublican politicians no longer value democracy. This much is clear because they continue to support Donald J. Trump's corruption.

EX-President Trump: "As everybody knows, my family, your great country and your president (YOUR FORMER PRESIDENT!) have gone through a terrible ordeal (DO YOU REFER TO THE JANUARY 6 INSURRECTION ON THE US CAPITOL INSTIGATED BY YOU?!) by some very dishonest and corrupt people." (SPEAK FOR YOURSELF MR. "THE COVID-19 WILL BE GONE BY SPRING 2020! AND I HAVE A BEAUTIFUL HEALTH CARE PLAN THAT IS CHEAPER AND BETTER THAN OBAMACARE!").

While I do not agree with Rep. Cheney on any of her policies, she's spot on with this (this isn't policy):
In a podcast episode released Monday, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) likened former "President" Trump's rhetoric about U.S. democracy and elections to that of the Chinese Communist Party, the Washington Post reports.
State of play: Cheney was ousted from her position as the No. 3 House Republican after publicly criticizing the former president’s baseless claims of election fraud.
● Tensions between Cheney and Trump escalated after she voted for his impeachment on a charge of inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.
● Her ouster last month reflects how much loyalty to Trump has become institutionalized in the Republican Party. What they’re saying: "I think what Donald Trump did is the most dangerous thing, the most egregious violation of an oath of office of any president in our history,” Cheney said on "The Axe Files," a podcast hosted by former Obama adviser David Axelrod.
● "When you listen to Donald Trump talk now, when you hear the language he’s using now, it is essentially the same things that the Chinese Communist Party, for example, says about the United States and our democracy,” Cheney said.
● “When he says that our system doesn’t work … when he suggests that it’s, you know, incapable of conveying the will of the people, you know, that somehow it’s failed — those are the same things that the Chinese government says about us,” she added. “And it’s very dangerous and damaging … and it’s not true.”By Yacob Reyes

[Tulsa isn’t the only race massacre you were never taught in school. Here are others.]
Massacres in U.S. History
Here is a list of some of the countless massacres in the history of the United States.
Most of these massacres were designed to suppress voting rights, land ownership, economic advancement, education, freedom of the press, religion, LGBTQ rights, and/or labor rights of African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asians, and immigrants. While often referred to as “race riots,” they were massacres to maintain white supremacy.

Sydney Powell, a supposed lawyer, has assured the Trump cultists that Trump will be reinstated in August. What Powell doesn't explain is where in the US Constitution it provides for this so-called "reinstatement" of a president who lost re-election.
Trump believes this insane delusion as well.
The scale of Trump’s delusion is quite startling. This is not merely an eccentric interpretation of the facts or an interesting foible, nor is it an irrelevant example of anguished post-presidency chatter. It is a rejection of reality, a rejection of law, and, ultimately, a rejection of the entire system of American government.
