As expected, Steve Bannon blew off the subpoena to appear before the Select Committee so the committee has moved to hold him in criminal contempt. According to the 3 day rule, they will vote on Tuesday to move it on for a full House vote. If it passes, it goes to Merrick Garland who will decide whether or not to prosecute. The House is doing everything possible, when it’s possible to do it, respecting due process. If they broke any rules or skipped any steps we’d be Russia or China. We’re still America. For now.

Trumplican, QAnon weirdo, anti-masker and anti-vaxxer Alan Hostetter, one of the insurrectionists in custody who is affiliated with the Three Percenters and is being charged with conspiracy and plotting to attack the US government weeks before it happened, is representing himself.

He also happens to be a former yoga instructor from the beaches of Orange County in Southern California, home of the John Birch Society from the 1960s, grandfathers to the QAnon weirdos and Trumplicans. The peaceful yogi was against the peaceful transfer of power and has landed himself in jail where his oming and meditating is sure to annoy cellmates.

Real men read real fairy tales to their grandsons. Stories like Trumpelstiltskin — the story of how women better make gold out of straw or else.

“Trumpism is a cultural problem not just a political problem. We have got a nation of people now who have no grounding in what our country’s system of government really is. They would rather don the red cap of hostility.” — Rick Wilson
