Florida man has some thoughts about "getting back to law and order."

(Trump's under 88+ criminal indictments, was found liable for sexual assault/rape, and tax fraud. And he's ignored judge's gag order in his criminal case in New York.This is the same guy who wants to release the J6 prisoners who were convicted of beating and bloodying the Capital Police.)

This was an SNL skit from the Trump years.


Who would have believed while watching this that Trump would actually debase himself and the Christian religion by hawking his Trump-autographed Bibles for $60 during Holy Week 2024, as a source for raising money for his teams of lawyers defending him in his many criminal indictments.

But here we are:

BREAKING: John Eastman Disbarred.* 

The Trump lawyer who wrote the legal memo with the plan to overturn the election is disbarred from the practice of law.

*ETTD (Everything Trump Touches Dies.)

On the most solemn week for Christianity...


Trump wishes everyone a "Happy Holy Week!" He's obviously not acquainted with what happens to Jesus during Holy Week, but his far right Christian Evangelicals don't care. Trump's got Bibles to sell, and his willing marks will scoop them up at $60 a pop!

 Antonio, in Shakespeare’s MERCHANT OF VENICE: 

“The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose. 
An evil soul producing holy witness 
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek, 
A goodly apple rotten at the heart.”

Jesus wants YOU to help Trump pay for his criminal trial obligations this Holy Week. 

Act Now!

Yes. This creep said he'd like to "date" his own daughter.


What kind of father says these kind of sexual things about his own daughter?!

Lindsey Graham on August 7: “I've been consistent…States should decide the issue of abortion.” 

 Lindsey Graham on September 20, defending a national abortion ban: “This is not a states’ rights issue.” 

Marco Rubio said recently that he would be “honored” if Trump offered him a VP job.

Here is what Rubio said in March 2016: “For years to come, there are many people on the right, in the media and voters at large, that are going to be having to explain and justify how they…

Records confirm Trump’s mother-in-law came to U.S. through process he derided 

 "Melania Trump sponsored her mother to immigrate to the United States through a family-based process that former president Donald Trump aggressively sought to end, according to federal immigration records released Monday."

United Steelworkers union endorses Biden

SEIU endorses Biden-Harris for reelection 

There are many, many reasons for loving US Representatives Jamie Raskin and Jared Moskowitz


They both made fools of the very foolish Trump lackeys in the House who trumped up false "high crimes and misdemeanors" against President Biden because the adjudicated sexual assaulter/rapist and tax fraudster told them to. 

Bravo to the brilliant US Representatives Raskin and Moskowitz for showing the country what utterly embarrassing clowns the Republicans are who carried on this abomination of a farce of an obscenity of a show:

This is Joseph Randall Biggs. He is inmate #26257-509 in the Federal Corrections Institution in Talladega, AL. 

 On January 5, 2021, Mr. Biggs went to DC to where he instructed his fellow domestic terrorists to "blend in" and "get ready for tomorrow, we have a plan." 

 On January 6, 2021, Mr. Biggs executed his plan. He cut down fencing, used walkie-talkies to communicate with other terrorists, and was among the first to breach the Capitol. Once inside, he made a video where he bragged, "this is awesome." 

By most accounts he entered through the Senate side where a window had been smashed out with a police riot shield. On January 18, 2021, Mr. Biggs admitted to the FBI that he entered the Capitol on Jan 6. He was arrested, allowed home confinement, and was finally tried over a 3-month period ending in May 2023. 

 Biggs was found guilty of seditious conspiracy; obstructing an official proceeding and criminal conspiracy thereto; conspiracy to prevent an officer from discharging any duties; interference with law enforcement during civil disorder; and destruction of government property. 

Judge Timothy Kelly ruled that Biggs' destruction of a fence separating rioters and police qualified the defendant for "a terrorism sentencing enhancement sought by prosecutors," who asked for a 33-year sentence. 

Prior to sentencing, Biggs apologized to the court, blaming his actions on personal and familial difficulties, and conceded that "I know that I have to be punished, and I understand". 

After being convicted by a jury of his peers, on August 31, Judge Kelly sentenced Biggs to 17 years of federal imprisonment. 

 Donald Trump has called Mr. Biggs a hostage. 

J.D. Vance says he was unfairly sentenced. 

If Trump wins in November, one of his first acts will be to pardon Joseph Randall Biggs and his fellow domestic terrorists.

Trump, his MAGA politicians, and cultists do not respect the rule of law.

What a putz!


Trump says Jews who vote for Democrats ‘hate Israel’ and ‘their religion’, igniting a firestorm of criticism from the White House and Jewish leaders. 

 "Jonathan Greenblatt, who heads the Anti-Defamation League, said, 'Accusing Jews of hating their religion because they might vote for a particular party is defamatory & patently false.' ”


"The Pew Research Center reported in 2021 that Jews are “among the most consistently liberal and Democratic groups in the U.S.,” with 7 in 10 Jewish adults identifying with or leaning toward the Democratic Party. In 2020, it found that nearly three-quarters of American Jews disapproved of Trump’s performance as president, with just 27% rating him positively. 

 Americans have also increasingly soured on Israel’s military operation in Gaza, according to surveys from The Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. In January, 50% of U.S. adults said the military response from Israel in the Gaza Strip had gone too far, up from 40% in November."



I don't get cable, so I don't watch MSNBC. A friend sent this to me:

 30% of our fellow Americans are rooting for accused and convicted felons to run America!

Why isn't our hair on fire???


UPDATE: On Trump's hush money to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal trial: 

 Trump's legal team attempted to block testimony from Stormy Daniels, Michael Cohen, and Karen McDougal in the hush money trial! 

 This motion has been DENIED by the Manhattan judge.

Accused felon, Trump, to re-hire convicted felon, Manafort, (whom he pardoned), to run his campaign!



You can't make this stuff up.

Does Trump have any non-felonious pals?

Trump unable to secure $454 million appeal bond in New York civil fraud case, his attorneys say 

According to Trump, Joe Biden won against Barack Hussein Obama with the largest margins ever!


Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. He was talking about cars wars with China. But what kind of politician uses "bloodbath" when talking about an election under ANY circumstances?

Michele Morrow, the GOP nominee to run North Carolina’s public schools, has called for executing President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama.


When will Americans wake up to the fact that conspiracy nuts (I think they're mentally unbalanced) find a happy and welcoming home in the Party of Trump?:


Orban has condemned the idea of a “mixed race” society in Hungary. 

Trump declaimed that immigrants are "poisoning the blood of our country."

The twin challenges of warnings about Trump’s support of authoritarianism

Trump welcomed Hungarian leader Viktor Orban to his Mar-a-Lago home last week, offering unqualified praise for Orban’s strongman approach to politics. “There’s nobody that’s better, smarter or a better leader than Viktor Orban. He’s fantastic,” Trump said during a reception Friday evening. “He does a great job. He’s a noncontroversial figure because he says, ‘This is the way it’s going to be,’ and that’s the end of it. Right? He’s the boss.” 


Under Orban, Hungarian democracy has withered. There are still elections, but ones in which there are no significant threats to his ruling coalition. Orban has often allied with the autocratic leaders of China and Russia against other European nations and against NATO. But understanding of this shift hasn’t permeated the American consciousness, allowing Orban to be celebrated as a strong leader by Trump and the broader right without the baggage that comes from, say, bolstering positions held by Russian President Vladimir Putin. 


 When Americans have been asked how they feel in the abstract about the broader prospect of a strongman leader — such as whether presidents should be empowered to break rules or to subvert the media, Republicans and conservatives have been more supportive of those ideas than have liberals or Americans overall. 

 Among them is Donald Trump, seeking to return to the White House Orbán’s Hungary is a textbook case of democratic backsliding, characterized by state capture of public institutions; assaults on minority rights, especially migrant, Roma, and LGBTQ rights; aggressive nationalist rhetoric; and attacks on the rule of law. 

 In 2011, the introduction of a new constitution marked a pivotal shift in Hungary’s political trajectory, pushing it toward an electoral autocracy, by which autocratic leadership gains power in elections that are neither free nor fair. The new constitution and accompanying legislative changes initiated a strategic redrawing of electoral districts, a culling of parliamentary seats from 386 to 199, and the adoption of the so-called winner compensation mechanism, whereby a proportion of votes from the losing party in elections are tallied for the winner. 

 Viktor Orbán’s actions have punctuated a critical moment of challenge to democracy and the trans-Atlantic security order. Under Orbán’s leadership, Fidesz took advantage of these changes to further consolidate its grip on power. Beginning in 2014, Orbán’s allies started to acquire the country’s major media companies. They transformed news outlets into voices for the regime—or closed them down altogether. By 2019, media control resulted in 80 percent of public affairs programming being directly or indirectly financed from sources connected to the ruling party. The government also introduced one of Europe’s strictest foreign agent laws, which requires nongovernmental organizations receiving foreign financing to identify themselves and, in some cases, prohibits non-Hungarian entities from operating in the country. These conditions forced the Central European University to all but cease operations in Budapest in late 2018. 

 Yet the gravest threat to Hungarian democracy has come in the form of attacks against the judiciary: Budapest established a new tier of special administrative courts, transferring oversight directly to the government; packed the Constitutional Court of Hungary with partisan judges; and extended term limits from nine to 12 years—though authorities have since suspended parts of these laws. Until we can tackle the epidemic of fear, we're going to fall under authoritarian rule. 

Trump's rise was the result of a fearful electorate in which Osama and Obama were equally threatening. Republican politics are based entirely on fear motivation. Fox News, et al, are fear messengers 24/7. Fearful people want a strong figure to make them feel safe. The fact they have chosen Donald Trump of all people is a cosmic joke, but if not him, they'd cling to some other autocrat. the Founders really missed the boat when it comes to dealing with a domestic insurgency like MAGA. 

Apparently, there is nothing in our founding documents that prevents a political party that embraces autocracy, fascism, and kleptocracy, and is willing to foment violence to achieve their anti-democratic goals. We already knew the Founders had a blindside when it came to women and people of color. It is surprising that we have gotten this far without a Constitutional crisis. 

 Orban is in power because he rules the media with an iron fist. But also because the people of Hungary enjoy benefits and a standard of living the people of America can only dream about- and hope that if Trump gets in power again, the little that they do have is not going to be taken away. 

Hungary has government sponsored health care, prescriptions, paid maternity leave, subsidies and all encompassing help for young families and children, a right to abortions, strict gun control, price control at the pump, and the list goes on. Hungarians do not go bankrupt due to medical bills, or have to decide whether to buy insulin or food.

 What Orban is so famous for in the US, his anti-LGBTQ, anti-immigrant, pro-Christian, anti-muslim, anti-media, anti-liberal education stance is no different from what Republicans, and especially Trump, espouse and want to force on the rest of us. That is the massive difference between Trump and Orban. Trumps' voters settle for absolutely nothing in exchange. While Orban's voters enjoy benefits Trump voters aren't even "woke" enough to expect. 

 Current law in Hungary on abortion: Abortion is regulated under the Act LXXIX of 1992 on the protection of fetal life. Under this law, an abortion is normally allowed until 12 weeks. However, in certain circumstances the limit can be extended to 18, 20 or 24 weeks. Victor Orban, the authoritarian leader of Hungary and Putin’s only ally in Europe, who recently met Trump in Mar-a-Lago, says that if Trump wins the election he’ll cut off all aid to Ukraine and the “war will be over” (Russia will take over Ukraine.)

btw- DEI doesn’t cover "opinions." If you want to kick out a black person with a conservative opinion from your corporate board or university position, DO IT! If you want to fire a conservative commenter, DO IT! We have “prosecutorial discretion”… and we will exercise it.  

 This is the “unspoken” rules of our ideology. ”You may not criticize a minority (unless their white skinned or (R) or MAGA). In those specific cases, we give you permission. All those who violate this rule will be cancelled.” 

The writer of this complaint conveniently (or purposefully?) doesn't mention how the MAGAs cancel bona fide conservative members of their own clan, without "prosecutorial discretion."  

If you're not slavishly loyal to Trump (even when he commits crimes), you're out, you're shunned, you're exiled from the Party! 

Remember what happened to Liz Cheney? Adam Kinzinger? the late John McCain? Mitt Romney? Charlie Baker? Paul Ryan? Nikki Haley? John Kelly? Mike Esper? Cassidy Hutchinson? 

The list goes on and on.

The person who wrote the above bolded and italicized quote ignores the fact the the BIGGEST enforcers of non-diversity, equity, and inclusion will throw your Republican posterior out of the Party UNLESS you pledge allegiance to Trump and his MAGAs.

Conservatives who put country first are not welcome in the new Trumpublican Party. You may not criticize Trump, an adjudicated rapist and tax fraudster. Remember, all those who violate this rule will be cancelled, as Liz Cheney and others have found out. Diversity in the Trumpian Party BE DAMNED! This is the unspoken rule of the Trumpian ideology. Worship him or you're OUT! Only unquestioning sycophants are allowed.

All those who violate this rule have been and will be cancelled. Any other Conservative or American who puts country over Party need not apply for membership in this Toadying to Trump Party!

PS. White-skinned Americans are NOT a minority in this country. (Yet.)

This is the Kansas GOP. People were asked to donate money to take their turn punching and kicking a Biden effigy. 

This was not the fringe. It was a booth at the GOP fundraiser. This is the caliber of the GOP. 

Why would any sane person be part of this?

"Unhinged Democrats in California hosted an event where fellow Democrats could donate to the Party for the opportunity to kick, hit and club an effigy of former President Trump. Opps, never mind, that was the Kansas Republican Party encouraging political violence by charging Republicans to attacking a Joe Biden effigy. Why is it not surprising that the same political party that attacked police at the certification of the election are trying to monetize violence against the political opponent that they pretended lost the election?" --Brian Krassenstein


Proud of yourselves? I've seen grammar school children who have more self-control than these harebrained ghouls.

I don’t agree that MAGA is conservatism. I do agree that the Republican Party is dead.

Yes, the Republican Party is DEAD. And it is being led by an anti-democracy, anti-American rapist and tax fraudster who tried to steal the 2020 election and install himself as an illegitimate president. And he will try it again.

President Biden's SOTU


I thought it was strong, even fiery at times, and just what Biden needed to do to quash the idea that he's "sleepy."

Here's what the 2024 election is really about:

Authoritarian retribution with Trump.

Democracy with Biden.

It's that simple.

Oh, I almost forgot:

Alabama Senator Katie Britt's rebuttal to the SOTU:

Notwithstanding all her ranting about the border, she voted against the bipartisan border security bill that the Republicans tanked after DT told them to.

Does America want more of this miserable incompetency from Trump?

Should America give Trump a second chance to find out?

Has Trump changed and become more adept at finding "only the best people" to serve under him?

Hey, America! Wanna take another chance on him and find out?

Trump's ex-doctor demoted by Navy for inappropriate behavior in White House 

Travis Gettys March 7, 2024 10:27AM ET 

"Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), the former White House physician, was demoted by the U.S. Navy following an inspector general's report that found he acted inappropriately while serving under then-president Donald Trump. 

 The Navy demoted the two-term congressman from a retired admiral to captain, which carries serious financial implications and a social stigma among military circles, after the Pentagon inspector general faulted him for creating a hostile work environment and drinking and taking drugs while on duty as the president's doctor, reported the Washington Post. 

 'The substantiated allegations in the DoDIG [Department of Defense Office of Inspector General] investigation of Rear Adm (lower half) Ronny Jackson are not in keeping with the standards the Navy requires of its leaders and, as such, the Secretary of the Navy took administrative action in July 2022,' said Lt. Cmdr. Joe Keiley, a Navy spokesperson."

 LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Dan Rodimer, a former Republican congressional candidate and ex-wrestler, surrendered to police in Nevada on Wednesday after officials issued a warrant for his arrest in connection with the death of a man at a Las Vegas Strip hotel. 


Former President Donald Trump had endorsed Rodimer before the 2020 election, tweeting: “Dan Rodimer will be an incredible Congressman for Nevada! A former professional wrestler, he will fight for Lower Taxes, Better Education and More Jobs, and he will always support our Brave Law Enforcement. Dan has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”



"It now seems official that the Republican nominee is an adjudicated rapist, business fraud, and insurrectioni st who's been indicted on 91 criminal charges.

That is how an honest media must refer to him in every headline between now and November." --Robert Reich

This is who the MAGAs want to put back in charge of the United States:
