Don't try this at home:
Rep. M.T. Greene says she is introducing a bill that would force Twitter to unban her from Twitter. “It’s important for me to have my personal Twitter account,” she said.
and America needs to come to terms with the fact that the Trumpublican Party (The Republican Party is dead; Trump killed it) is a rogue party that no longer has any relationship to the truth, honor, decency, or democracy.
“ 'First off, folks, let me be very clear tonight. The election in 2020 was rigged and stolen.' ” That baldfaced lie was former senator David Perdue’s opening line Sunday in a primary debate against the fellow Republican whose job he is trying to take, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.
[skip]"It must be acknowledged, because it is the simple truth, that this is not a “both-sides-are-to-blame” crisis. The Democratic Party is engaged in politics as usual, with the customary pull and tug between its progressive and centrist wings. The GOP has gone rogue in a way that is un-American and without modern precedent."
And how could I not love her? My granddaughter shares her name.
Disney acknowledges gays and nonbinary Americans, and Florida's Trumpublican Governor DeSantis doesn't like it, so he took away their special tax status.
Isn't that what's called "cancel culture?" DeSantis has dreams of being Florida's own little dictator, telling private businesses (Disney employs roughly 80,000 people) what they should and should not do, and if they don't do what HE wants, they'll face severe consequences.
Q: "Isn't that the definition of a fascist government?"
A: "In general, fascist governments exercised control over private property."
It's law: In just days, Ron DeSantis dismantles Disney's special tax district operating since 1967
Also, her "perfect creator" allows babies to be born with all sorts of imperfect conditions, like congenital heart defects.
Doctors can and do heal the defects the "perfect creator" made.
Unless she personally knows of the struggles trans people suffer, I'd ask this woman to find something else to misinform herself on, and leave trans people alone to solve their issues.
The Republicans have shown America that they are "Party Over Country," "Party Over Principles," and "Party of Love of Power Over Our Constitution."
They're all rotten to the core, and McCarthy and McConnell are the worst of the worst.
All my life I've seen the GOP stand for family values, small government, and allegiance to the rule of law. No longer does any of that exist in the current GOP. They've decided to cast their lot with A Liar, A Cheat, and A Fraud. And the stink from Trump's rancid character and his presidency has rubbed off on a once proud American political party.
The GOP may never rid itself of his stench.
There’s a rot at the core of the Republican Party, and neither the party nor the country will heal until it’s excised.
BREAKING: "Ukraine’s Jewish community has announced that the 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Vanda Obiedkova perished while sheltering in a Mariupol basement. As she lay dying, freezing and pleading for water, she wanted to know only one thing: 'Why is this happening?' ”
Tennessee lawmakers are close to sending Republican Gov. Bill Lee a proposal that would threaten felony penalties against homeless people who camp on local public property — including in parks — and misdemeanors for camping around highways.
RIP Presidential Debates: 1960 -- 2020:
A friend sent this email to me in response to the news:
Below is a photo of a pro-Trump, anti-Biden conservative family displaying their wholesome right-wing family values.
Because teaching your children to give the finger and repeat "F**k You" to the POTUS is a true Trumpublican family value.
The women in the black fishnet stocking twerking their bare asses in the background is a particularly nice family touch, innit?
Football legend, Hershel Walker, has been endorsed by Trump for the US Senate from Georgia. He'll be in a primary runoff on May 24 against other Republican/Trumpublican contenders.
Here's what we know about Walker, so far, and it's all of a piece with how Trump lied his way to his nomination for POTUS. Trump proudly endorsed Walker for the US Senate.
PS. Recently, Walker wondered why there are still monkeys if Evolution claims that we came from them. The egregious idiocy contained in that musing is embarrassing and should have disqualified him on the spot. But he was endorsed by Trump, and that's all Trump's cultists need to know about any candidate.
Thanks to Trump, the Trumpublican Party now is proud to run a liar like Walker for a US Senate seat. And not one of them seems to care.
Go to the NYTimes link below and listen to Jason Sullivan talk about how to intimidate members of Congress into not certifying the electoral college vote, and listen to him brag how Trump will not let that happen because "he has principles."
You will hear in this voice recording how Trumpers planned to overthrow a free and fair election and illegitimately install Trump for a second term, against the will of the American people:
"One week before an angry mob stormed the Capitol, a communications expert named Jason Sullivan, a onetime aide to Roger J. Stone Jr., joined a conference call with a group of President Donald J. Trump’s supporters and made an urgent plea.
Here's a text from Trump's son, Donald Trump, Junior, telling Trump's Chief of Staff how they can steal the election if Trump loses. This text was sent TWO days after the election, BEFORE the winner was declared.
But Hunter's laptop?
The former president's son is on record telling the president's CoS how they'll bypass the American people's decision on who the next president will be and install his father for a second term.
"Former President Donald J. Trump’s eldest son sent the White House chief of staff a text message two days after Election Day in 2020 that laid out strategies for declaring his father the winner regardless of the electoral outcome, people familiar with the exchange said on Friday.
