Joe Manchin is not just for keeping the undemocratic filibuster. He announced on Sunday, the Lord’s Day, in an op-ed that he will vote against the For the People Act confirming what we already know — Manchin is putting party before country (the Republican party) and is not a Democrat. He is as much of a racist control freak as the rest of them. He doesn’t want black, brown or young educated people to vote because that’s not what he’s getting paid for. Most of his campaign donations come from outside of West Virginia. He votes to protect them, not the people of West Virginia or the country. He’s a millionaire. He didn’t make that on a government salary for 40 years but he did make it working in government. The US Chamber of Commerce backs Joe Manchin. They are notorious for not liking Democrats because they are more for the worker than the ones who make money off of the backs of the workers, but they like Joe Manchin. Joe Manchin is the Mitch McConnell of the left.
Lady Liberty sings the blues: “Manchin to the left of me, McConnell to the right, here I am, stuck in the middle of a coup.”
“Maybe it’s me, but you’d think if Manchin was interested in bipartisanship, he’d vote with the Democrats occasionally.” — Doug Hammond
Trump’s “official presidential speech” (according to Trump because he still thinks he’s presideint) in North Carolina was so incoherent that he actually said, “we have to defund our freedoms.” The only takeaway was his pants. People thought he was wearing his pants backwards because he was so shabbily dressed.
Speaking of Trump in North Carolina, Lara Trump announced that she’s not going to run for Senate in North Carolina after all. Perhaps she’s worried that getting arrested for the crimes she committed while working on Trump’s campaign could really screw up her chances of winning.
Trump not only wants to stay president to keep from going to jail, but as a narcissist he really got off on all that MAGA attention he got while in power with all those Republicans kissing his ass all the time. He’s never had so many people “like” him before. He picked August to be reinstated so he could recapture that attention and have a couple of months to “fundraise” off of it. Getting reinstated any sooner would not be as profitable.
“Trump’s claim that he will be ‘reinstalled’ this summer is a repeat of the same playbook that led to January 6. Give your followers false hope in a completely unattainable outcome, so that when it inevitably doesn’t happen, you can channel their disappointment into rage.” — Asha Rangappa
Trump personally called the president of the Arizona Senate to thank her for pushing to prove fraud in the 2020 election. Everybody knows there was no fraud. They’re only doing this to create doubt in voters’ minds about the integrity of the elections. It already backfired on them in the neighboring state of New Mexico. The Democratic candidate who ran for Deb Haaland’s seat won by a landslide. Republicans didn’t vote because they don’t trust the polls.
Mike Pence spoke at a dinner event in New Hampshire. He said he and Trump talk all the time (even though he almost got him assassinated) and that while he doesn’t know if they’ll ever see eye to eye about January 6, he’s proud of all that they did during their 4 years together. He is even writing a book about it. He says systemic racism is a “left-wing myth.” That should sell a lot of books.
Don McGhan testified for 8 hours. Only 2 Republicans showed up — Gym Jordan and Matt Gaetz. Gym Jordan showed up to do what he always does — make a complete fool of himself and a mockery out of Congress. Matt Gaetz (who shouldn’t even be on this committee because he’s under federal investigation) showed up so he could run to Trump and tell him everything that happened behind closed doors in order to get back into his good graces.
Emails from Trump’s former Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, to the DOJ show how desperate and freaked out Trump and the White House were during his final days in office. They were trying to find some way to undermine or nullify the election results while they still had control of the US government.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton admitted that if he hadn’t been successful in blocking mail-in ballots Trump would have lost Texas.
The Republiqans have resurrected the email scandal again. This time they’re desperately trying to create a suspicious buzz around Dr. Fauci’s emails to create a new story to take away from the real story which is they’re trying to take control of our government.
Marjorie Taylor Greene sent the president a formal letter requesting an investigation into Fauci and wants the results by June 31st. There are only 30 days in June.
Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November, all the rest have thirty-one, except February which has none because the Democrats took it and that’s what they’re planning to do with your guns so everybody freak out and meet us at the Capitol again!
